With all eyes on the Iranian encroachment on Israel’s border with Syria, certain recent developments reveal the Islamic Republic is also trying to destroy Israel from within.

First, there is the renewed rocket fire on the south of Israel which is, in fact, an Iranian attempt to trigger a new war between Hamas and the Jewish state.

As Arutz 7 reported at the end of December 2017, Qassem Soleimani the commander of the Quds Force of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), recently contacted Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar with an offer to “provide the Palestinian people with all the means at the IRGC’s disposal in the struggle for Jerusalem.”

The Quds Force of the IRGC is the division which operates outside of Iran and Soleimani has virtually overseen every major battle in Syria and Iraq in the past few years despite a travel ban imposed on him by the UN Security Council.

On Wednesday, Israel announced via unofficial channels that Islamic Jihad, a Palestinian terror organization backed and funded by Iran, was behind the renewed rocket fire from Gaza.

The announcement came after three mortar shells were fired from Gaza which, happily, landed in open fields.

Last Saturday, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman told TV Channel 2 in Israel that Iran was behind the flare-up in rocket and mortar fire emanating from Gaza.

On Friday last week, after a new rocket barrage from Gaza, the IDF Spokesmen Office issued a statement which said that the fire “proved once again that Iran, through rogue and extremist terrorist organizations, is acting to bring about a deterioration in the regional situation.”

The statement furthermore said that Iran “is playing with the lives of the Gazan residents that could lead the strip to an escalation after years of quiet on the security front.”

IDF Chief of Staff Gaby Eisenkot recently revealed Iran has increased its financial support to Hamas and Islamic Jihad to $100 million annually – up from $ 70 million – in order to get more influence on the war effort at Israel’s southern front.

According to a report by Media Line which cited Brig. Gen. Yossi Kuperwasser (ret.), former director general of the Israeli Ministry of International Affairs and Strategy, Iran’s growing influence over Gaza is a matter of “convergence of interests.”

Kuperwasser says that Hamas is in a very weak position as the unity agreement with the Palestinian Authority failed to materialize and the already dire situation in Gaza is now rapidly deteriorating.

“The Iranians want to increase the strength of the ‘resistance’ axis that opposes Israel and promotes radical Islamic ideology and Hamas can be a useful ally in this cause,” according to one of PM Netanyahu’s former advisers on security affairs.

Other Israeli security experts such as Brig. Gen. (res.) Eli Ben Meir, who was the head of the IDF’s intelligence branch, think the escalation in the south of Israel is connected to the northern front where the Iranian axis is now approaching the Israeli border on the Golan Heights.

“There is a potential for escalation in Syria,” according to Ben Meir who pointed out that enforcing Israel’s red lines in Syria – Jerusalem wants an Iranian axis free security zone on the other side of the Syria border- will be met with a massive response from Gaza.

“Tehran will fan the flames until ultimately there is a confrontation,” Ben Meir thinks and he bases his assessment on the previous international response to the wars between Hamas and Israel.

A war between Israel and Hamas would drive a wedge between the Jewish State and its new Arab allies in the conflict with Iran and would weaken Israel’s position internationally, according to this line of thinking.

Iran is without any doubt preparing the ground for a major conflict between Israel and the so-called ‘Islamic Resistance’, which now consists of Hamas, Islamic Jihad and other Palestinian terror groups on one hand and the Shiite militias in Lebanon, Iraq, and Syria on the other hand.

At the same time, Iran is trying to get a foothold in Judea and Samaria, the biblical heartland of Israel and home to the Palestinian Authority which controls almost all Palestinian Arab population centers.

On Wednesday, the Israel Security Agency (ISA) revealed it had uncovered “an infrastructure in Judea and Samaria that was run by Iranian intelligence and which was recruited and financed by an Iranian intelligence operative living in South Africa.”

The “infrastructure” was set up by Mahmoud Makharmeh, 29, “a computer engineering student who resides in Hebron,” according to ISA.

Makharmeh was recruited by Bakhar Makharmeh, a relative who lives in South Africa and who works for Iranian intelligence.

Iran is using South Africa, a pro-Palestinian country, as a center for “locating, recruiting and operating agents against Israel in Judea and Samaria,” ISA revealed.

Bakhar was working to recruit more Palestinian Arabs in order to carry out espionage on the IDF and terrorist acts against Israeli Jews on behalf of Iran.

After meeting with Iranian intelligence operatives several times Mahmoud Makharmeh was charged with a range of missions which were meant to undermine Israel from within while the ‘Islamic Resistance’ would prepare for a massive attack on Israel which will be launched at the Jewish state from multiple fronts.

In other words, from Lebanon where Hezbollah has been preparing for the next war with Israel for the past 11 years, from Syria where Iran has built a Shiite proxy force of 125.000 fighters which is now trying to get a foothold on the Syrian Golan Heights, and from Gaza where Islamic Jihad and Hamas are working in tandem to prepare for a new war against Israel.

ISA revealed that Mahmoud Makharmeh was supposed to recruit Palestinian Arabs who would restart the suicide bombing campaign against Israeli targets and who would carry out shooting attacks.

He furthermore was charged with setting up an Iranian intelligence center in Hebron which would also offer a training course in manufacturing explosive devices and other weaponry.

The now arrested Iranian agent was also looking for an Israeli Arab who would be charged with intelligence gathering missions in Israel and had already recruited two Hevron residents who formed a terrorist cell with Mahmoud Makharmeh.

He was also supposed to recruit Israelis – such as journalists- who had access to sensitive sites inside Israel and received a sum of $8000 for his efforts to enlist Arabs for Iran’s offensive from within Israel.

Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu reacted to the ISA announcement by warning that Iran is now using all sorts of covert operations to bring about the stated goal of annihilation of the Jewish state.

“I would like to bring it to your attention that Iran is using terrorism against the State of Israel not only with the assistance of terrorist movements such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad but is also attempting to organize terrorist actions inside the State of Israel and against the citizens of Israel, ” Netanyahu said in a statement released on Wednesday.

A few hours later ISA released a new statement which announced the arrest of a 17-member strong Hamas cell that received its orders from Gaza and which was in advanced stages of planning to carry out shooting attacks in Judea and Samaria.

It was new evidence Hamas is exploiting the weak position of Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas and – with Iranian help – is trying to take over the PA, something that was predicted by Shin Beth chief Nadav Argaman at the end of December 2017.


His leadership and television interviews have gone trough out the world. Luden Centeno of Converso Marano Jewish background from Spain resides permanently in Jerusalem. His analysis of Middle Eastern events as they relate to Israel is regularly broadcast through internet radio and television through out the world, especially the USA. Luden has given close to 500 television interviews in Israel Jerusalem and broadcasts live from Jerusalem Israel on the radio. On our last 6 radio programs we have had over 500,00 listeners listening in. Our main goal is to educate the world about Israel and its right to protect herself from any form of terrorism that comes out of Ramallah and the occupied territories that belong to Israel. Israel faces many challenges and dangers since a very long time. There is an unprecedented propaganda campaign initiated by the Arab League to demonize, discredit and delegitimize the Jewish people and their state, within their own land! The efforts of the Arab League were recently seen in the UN Resolution 2334 text as follows, adopted by the UN Security Council at its 7853rd meeting, on 23 December 2016. Reaffirming its relevant resolutions, including resolutions 242 (1967), 338 (1973), 446 (1979), 452 (1979), 465 (1980), 476 (1980), 478 (1980), 1397 (2002), 1515 (2003), and 1850 (2008), guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and reaffirming, inter alia, the inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by force, reaffirming the obligation of Israel, the occupying Power, to abide scrupulously by its legal obligations and responsibilities under the Fourth Geneva Convention relative to the Protection of Civilian Persons in Time of War of 12 August 1949, and recalling the advisory opinion rendered on 9 July 2004 by the International Court of Justice, condemning all measures aimed at altering the demographic composition, character and status of the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967, including East Jerusalem, including, inter alia, the construction and expansion of settlements, transfer of Israeli settlers, confiscation of land, demolition of homes and displacement of Palestinian civilians, in violation of international humanitarian law and relevant resolutions. In order to achieve their goals, the Arabs have for more than 30 years resorted to a deliberate misinformation campaign. This propaganda campaign by the Arab League – both in their own countries and for the last three decades exported to Europe and North America has caused Israel what would seem irreparable damage and indeed, it was the main culprit in the reawakening of dormant European anti-Semitism. Israel continues to suffer many attacks from terrorists and should not bow down under the pressure imposed by the USA, the EU. the Quartet, nor the UN. The former Obama administration was working behind the scenes to get UN Resolution 2334 to pass. even while allowing Iran to continue to develop their nuclear facilities by using John Kerry and others to fulfill their hidden agenda. On December 23rd 2016 the US abstained from exercising its veto to UN resolution 2334 which allowed it to pass. Then John Kerry immediately blasted Israel over the presence of Israeli settlements within Israel's own land. The Obama Administration's hidden agenda came to light. The former Obama administration was trying to force Israel to give up more land for false peace as we have seen in the past. Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley were on the negotiating table. For perspective, if the so-called Palestinians obtained Judea and Samaria and possibly the Jordan Valley, Givat HaRoe’eh in the Samaria community of Eli, Ramat Gilad and Giv’at Assaf (also in Samaria), and Mitzpeh Lachish, near Nehogot outside Hebron. they could easily rain down rockets towards any city within Israel, leaving without defensible borders. We say no to land for false peace as we have seen in the past. By former President Barrack Hussein Obama who had a hidden agenda against Israel who will face many difficult challenges ahead (see Tehillim / See Psalms 83) As we have seen what happened with Gush Katif where almost 9,000 Jews were forced out of their own Jewish land due to US pressure, now Bet El Almuna and Migron and Judea and Samaria face the same threat. More than 17,000 rockets have been fired from the Gaza Strip into Israel since Israel uprooted 9,000 Jewish families. Over 11,000 were fired from Gaza towards the southern Israeli city of Sderot by Islamist extremist whose end-game is the total destruction of my people Israel. Hamas terrorists are supported by Iran and now Hamas has joined hands with Fatah. The Iranian Lebanese proxy Hezbollah who also operate in Syria are committed to the total destruction of Israel and has over 100,00 rockets aimed at Israel .Now Al Qaeda and ISIS who are operating in Syria Egypt and the Sinai Desert they will do anything in their power to destroy my people Israel and all Jews. Judea and Samaria (the heartland of Israel also known as the West Bank) face many challenges in the days to come as Abu Mazen will try to pressure the entire world and former US President Barrack Hussein Obama the UN the EU and the Quartet into giving more land for false peace. We saw what happened after the Oslo Accords were signed, dramatically increasing Islamic terror against Israel. Abu Mazen the fake Palestinian Authority leader approached the United Nations many times and has petitioned to be declared as a recognized nation within Israel's known borders. The time has come to tell the entire world the real truth about the enemies of Israel. We speak on the Quran using a Power Point video presentation. We have been aired on CNN, German TV, Finland TV, CCTV, China Al Jazera, Al Arabiya Turk TV and many radio stations on the current issues of Israel. Luden Centeno has a heart for his people Israel and will continue to inform the entire world the real truth as many News Media outlets throughout the world hold anti-Semitic views and won’t tell you the real truth. Centeno, a former police officer who studied Political Science at Temple University USA was born in the USA and currently lives in Jerusalem Israel, knowing karate and boxing having played semi-pro baseball. He has two children, a girl and a son, both born in Jerusalem. Centeno discovered in 2004 that there were possible Converso Marrano Jews from Spain whose ancestors were forced to convert to Catholicism during the time of the Inquisition in 1492. The family names Centeno and Perez are registered in El Libro Verde De Aragon in Spain. The Roman Catholic Inquisitors maintained all the names of all Jewish families who were forced to convert to Catholicism during that horrible time period in Spain. Since 2004 Centeno has been flying intercontinentally to the USA speaking to the nations on the current issues of the the state of Israel (see Psalms 83′ as the nations gather against Israel.) He has spoken on Al Arabiya TV, Dubai TV, Holland TV, German TV and also on American Family Radio which links up with 700 radio stations. His goal is to educate the entire world that Israel has the right to self-determination and the right to defend itself from terrorism. The Moslem Arabs in that area started calling themselves “Palestinians” merely only 40 years ago. “Palestinian” refers to people who live in Palestine: Arabs (“Arabic speaking peoples”), Bedouins, Druze, Christians, and Jews lived in then the British Mandate of Palestine. No people or nation called Palestine ever ruled as a sovereign national entity on this land. There is no Palestinian language or culture in past history. Palestine, as a country does not presently exist. No Arab nation has their historical roots on the land and no one had laid claim to this territory other than the Jews. The Jewish rule of this land extended over a period of over 2000 years. Israel became a nation in the land in 1312 BC. God gave them the land in a covenant (Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20) and they lived there. See the following Quote from the Quran, "Death to the enemies of Allah! Those that make war against Allah and His apostle and spread disorder in the land shall be slain or crucified or have their hands and feet cut off on alternate sides, or be banished from the land. They shall be held up to shame in this world and sternly punished in the hereafter: except those that repent before you reduce them. For you must know that Allah is..." This is what radical Islam says about us Jews’ “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Muslim) Psalms Chapter 83 תְּהִלִּים א שִׁיר מִזְמוֹר לְאָסָף. 1 A Song, a Psalm of Asaph. ב אֱלֹהִים אַל-דֳּמִי-לָךְ; אַל-תֶּחֱרַשׁ וְאַל-תִּשְׁקֹט אֵל. 2 O God, keep not Thou silence; hold not Thy peace, and be not still, O God. ג כִּי-הִנֵּה אוֹיְבֶיךָ, יֶהֱמָיוּן; וּמְשַׂנְאֶיךָ, נָשְׂאוּ רֹאשׁ. 3 For, lo, Thine enemies are in an uproar; and they that hate Thee have lifted up the head. ד עַל-עַמְּךָ, יַעֲרִימוּ סוֹד; וְיִתְיָעֲצוּ, עַל-צְפוּנֶיךָ. 4 They hold crafty converse against Thy people, and take counsel against Thy treasured ones. ה אָמְרוּ–לְכוּ, וְנַכְחִידֵם מִגּוֹי; וְלֹא-יִזָּכֵר שֵׁם-יִשְׂרָאֵל עוֹד. 5 They have said: ‘Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no more in remembrance.’ ו כִּי נוֹעֲצוּ לֵב יַחְדָּו; עָלֶיךָ, בְּרִית יִכְרֹתוּ. 6 For they have consulted together with one consent; against Thee do they make a covenant; God’s word says in Zechariah 8:23 "Thus saith the LORD of Hosts: In Those days it shall come to pass, That ten men shall take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, shall even take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying: We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."
