It looks like every time the terrorists "open the gates of hell," they fall right in
You remember how Hamas promised on Wednesday to "open the gates of hell" in response to Ahmed Jaabari's killing?
It is a habit with them.
Longtime blogger Meryl Yourish used to do a "Open the Gates of Hell" watch so I decided to do a quick search of when else Hamas and other terror groups made that same promise.

Two observations about the hostilities that began on Nov. 10:
An Israeli soldier works on the IDF's Facebook page.
(1) The old Arab-Israeli wars were military clashes, the recent ones are political clashes. The wars of 1948-49, 1967, and 1973 were life-and-death struggles for the Jewish state. But the wars of 2006, 2008-09, and now 2012 are media events in which Israeli victory on the military battlefield is foreordained and the struggle is to win public opinion. Opeds have replaced bullets, social media have replaced tanks. Will Israel prevail in arguing that its enemy initiated offensive action? Or will those enemies, Hamas or Hezbollah, convince observers that Israel is an illegitimate regime whose recourse to force is criminal? The war must be fought primarily as a media event.
A new congressional report from the House Homeland Security Committee Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management ties Middle East terror organizations to Mexican drug cartels
The report, released Thursday, is titled "A Line in the Sand: Countering Crime, Violence and Terror at the Southwest Border.” It found that the "Southwest border has now become the greatest threat of terrorist infiltration into the United States.” It specifically cites a "growing influence” from Iranian and Hezbollah terror forces in Latin America.
"The presence of Hezbollah in Latin America is partially explained by the large Lebanese diaspora in South America,” the report reads. "In general, Hezbollah enjoys support by many in the Lebanese world community in part because of the numerous social programs it provides in Lebanon that include schools, hospitals, utilities and welfare.”

Israel has finally struck back against the terrorist enclave of Gaza after having 120 rockets fired at it since Saturday and over 700 this year alone
For now, the Obama administration is rhetorically supporting Israel, but the Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt is doubling down on its support for Hamas, Gaza’s ruling terrorist organization, and has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel. U.S.-based Islamists and their non-Muslim allies can be counted on in the ensuing days to pressure the administration to throw Israel under the bus in favor of the Islamist rulers of Egypt.

The following is RadicalIslam.or’s Security Analyst Ryan Mauro’s interview with the author of the Money Jihad blog about how the Islamist terrorism continues to be lavishly funded 11 years after the attacks of September 11, 2001.

Islamophobia in is growing in British public life, especially in the media, and no one is trying to stop it.
This is the contention of the group that has organized "Islamophobia Awareness Month” in Britain. The following video doesn’t mention who is sponsoring this important initiative, but given the lavish promotion by the official Iranian media outlet PressTV, I think we can guess.
