Act of War

Israel has put up with more aggression than any other country I can think of. Here's another casus belli that I'm sure the international community will insist that Israel ignore.

The Palestinian group Hamas, blamed for last week’s massacre of eight students at a Jewish seminary in Jerusalem, has revealed that hundreds of its fighters have been trained in Iran.

A senior commander interviewed by The Sunday Times said 300 of the group’s “best brains” had been secretly sent to Tehran.

Half are still being trained by Revolutionary Guards. They are learning how to make explosives from everyday items and produce deadlier rockets.

Barack Obama, by the way, didn't bother to vote for the amendment which designated the Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organisation- not only that but he said that he opposed the amendment. Hillary, to her credit, voted for the measure.

The rest have already returned from a Revolutionary Guard base in Tehran. Some have been trained as snipers. Others have learnt to use tunnels in attacks on Israeli forces.

“Iran is our mother,” the commander said. “She gives us information, military supplies and financial support.”

And the world looks the other way.
