Filed under: France,Gilad Shalit Kidnapping,Hamas Terrorist Acts — No To Terror @ 7:40 am

Israel Radio is reporting that French President Nicolas Sarkozy told Israel’s Foreign Minister that his country would cease contact with Hamas.

Since Hamas kidnapped Israeli soldier and French citizen Gilad Shalit by crossing into Israel from Gaza in June 2006 in an unprovoked attack, France has reportedly played a behind-the-scenes role in helping to secure Shalit’s freedom.


Iran Promises Hamas Advanced Missiles, Weapons, and Financial Support

Hamas Chief Khaled Meshal and Iranian President Mahmoud AhmedinejadTop Iranian officials promised Hamas figurehead Khaled Meshal (inset, on the right) ongoing support to carry out further terrorist attacks against Israel, according to the London-based Asharq Alawsat newspaper.

The newspaper reported that high level Iranian political, security, military, and religious officials met with Hamas Political Bureau Chief Khaled Meshal in Tehran to discuss Iran’s ongoing supply of weapons, military training, and financial support to Hamas.

One alarming part of the report stated that Iranian Brigadier General Ahmad Wahid — a key leader of the country’s missile program — promised Mishal that Iran would “provide very advanced missiles that are currently being produced at the Martyr Bakiri Complex in Tehran especially for Hamas.”

Other Iranian officials present at the talks with Hamas included:

  • Iranian Revolutionary Guard Commander in Chief Maj. General Jafari;
  • Brigadier General Qasim Sulaymani, Commander of Iran’s Quds Force;
  • Officials from Iran’s Defense Industries Organization

Israel has long known about Iran’s role in equipping, financing, and training Hamas terrorists to carry out attacks against Israel. The New York Times reported last August that:

Hamas has sent hundreds of its fighters abroad for military training, most of them to Iran, the Israeli Army’s deputy chief of staff says, and Israel has the names of more than 100 of them.

On March 9, 2008, the The Sunday Times reported that a senior Hamas commander boasted that 300 of the organization’s “best brains” were secretly sent to Iran for military training from Iran’s Revolutionary Guard:

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

The Sunday Times report said that since 2005, at least seven (7) separate groups of Hamas fighters trained with Iranian instructors so that they could be snipers, make explosives out of everday items, and make deadlier rockets to use in terrorist attacks against Israel.

Israel’s Shin Bet Security Service: Hamas Rockets Could Strike Farther Than Before

Israel’s Shin Bet security service warned Sunday that the Hamas terrorist group’s daily Qassam rocket attacks on Israeli civilians could extend far beyond their 12 km range already proven capable of hitting Ashkelon.

According to Ha’aretz correspondent Barak Ravid, the Shin Bet head Yuval Diskin warned Israeli’s cabinet that the Hamas’ ongoing arms smuggling from Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula to Gaza would lead to “rockets capable of striking beyond Ashkelon, and possibly reaching as far as Ashdod and Kiryat Gat.”
