Hezbollah leader confirms alliance with Fatah, Hamas and Iran to "liberate" Jerusalem

Hezbollah’s secretary general, Hassan Nasrallah, has confirmed he recently met with Fatah leaders and other Palestinian factions in order to support the "liberation" of Jerusalem… and he denies it has anything to do with President Trump’s decision. The leader of the Lebanese-based terror group also said that Iran is directly providing financial aid and weapons to Palestinian groups independent of Hezbollah.

Speaking on Mayadeen TV, in an interview that was broadcast on 3rd January, he explained how Hezbollah, Fatah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other groups are prepared to put aside differences for a new “intifada” and would unite in the event of a large-scale war to “liberate Jerusalem, and not just the Galilee.”

What you've been saying about the situation in Iran and Israel's reaction:
As usual Israel stands for what is right. I totally agree with prime minister Netanyahu. Praying for Iran - COLLEEN
Bibi I love you courage and your boldness in speaking out. I pray that in the days to come, you become even more bold, and that you and your family are blessed in 2018 and all the days of your life Numbers 6 v 24-26 - ANGELA
Israel is one of the smallest countries in the world but gets blamed for everything! - KAREN
What a joke, some of the protesters want the supreme leader to go as well as the termination of support for Hezbollah and Hamas. The well-educated people of Iran are not fooled by such ridiculous statements - COLIN
Every time when someone points a finger to Israel, they face some terrible consequences. That is a fact that the true-Living God is with Israel, the Bible is God's written book. - RANJ

Give her an Oscar: Ahed Tamimi has a track record in provoking Israeli soldiers

Arsen Ostrovsky writes that Ahed Tamimi, the "notorious Palestinian teen provocateur", indicted last week by an Israeli court for throwing rocks and attacking Israeli soldiers, has been absurdly referred to as a modern-day Joan of Arc by many. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said she was merely “standing up for her rights”, while Al Jazeera asked “Why is the West praising Malala, but ignoring Ahed?”

"Well, for starters, Malala, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, was shot in the head in a singular act of courage for defying the Taliban in Pakistan to demand that girls be allowed to receive education."

This article reveals how the 18-year-old is part of her family's attempt to spark a new intifada.
