The Israeli military is gearing up for fierce “March of Return” protests along the Gaza security fence on Monday, with more than 100,000 Palestinians expected to take part, and dire warnings from the IDF that hundreds plan to try breach the fence and carry out a “massacre” of Israeli civilians.
“Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.” Zechariah 12:2,3 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: When a man and a woman get married, the minister of the ceremony asks right before they wed, ‘is there anyone here who objects to this marriage? Speak now, or forever hold your peace’. That’s exactly what it looks like Hamas and the Palestinians are doing, they are going to ‘speak now’ before the US Embassy can officially open in hopes of stopping the ‘wedding’ of Jerusalem to Israel once and for all. But sadly, all any Palestinian needs to do to see the ‘final ruling’ on the status of Jerusalem is get them a King James Bible and read where God has already decided who gets Jerusalem in the end. SPOILER ALERT: God gives it to the Jews for eternity. So on that note, Hamas and all the coasts of Palestine, let’s let the games begin, shall we? Bring it, and let’s see what the LORD God of the Jews shall do.
“Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee the uncircumcised and the unclean. Shake thyself from the dust; arise, and sit down, O Jerusalem: loose thyself from the bands of thy neck, O captive daughter of Zion.” Isaiah 52:1,2 (KJV)
The protests are now set for Monday, to coincide with the move of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, and not on Tuesday’s Nakba Day, as was originally expected. The Israel Defense Forces expects over 100,000 Palestinians to take part in the mass demonstrations and potentially as many as 200,000, something that would indicate a major victory for the Hamas terrorist group, which rules Gaza and has co-opted for its own ends what were originally slated to be weeks of nonviolent protests.
The army’s primary fear during the expected riots is that dozens or hundreds of Palestinians, including Hamas members, will manage to break through the Gaza security fence and wreak havoc in one of the Israeli communities on the other side, attacking residents, starting fires, and destroying buildings.
The military believes Hamas will focus its energies on this style of mass, chaotic attack, but the IDF is also preparing for more direct armed combat, including attacks on troops along the border, or kidnappings of IDF soldiers, as has happened along the Gaza border in years past.

On Sunday night, the IDF Spokesperson’s Unit released a dramatic video noted that Hamas has destroyed homes, torched farmland and massacred “innocent men, women, and children” and seeks to do so again.
“On Monday May 14th, the Hamas terrorist organization plans to send armed terrorists, among 250,000 violent rioters to swarm and breach Israel’s border with Gaza and enter Israeli communities,” warned the English language video. “Hamas plans to carry out a massacre in Israel. The Israel Defense Forces will not let them.”
The accompanying footage showed a young girl playing with a dollhouse, which cut to an image from the bloodstained aftermath of a terror attack in the West Bank from 2016, in which a 12-year-old Israeli girl was stabbed to death in her bedroom.
Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh traveled to Cairo on Sunday, ahead of the protests, to meet with Egyptian intelligence officers, who were expected to call on him to keep the demonstrations from getting out of control.
The IDF however is not relying on Egypt’s persuasive powers and has dispatched two additional brigades to take positions along the Gaza border ahead of the anticipated riots. A third brigade was also deployed to the West Bank, the army said.
“The IDF’s preparation includes the additional deployment of a number of combat battalions to the Gaza border, special forces, intelligence collection units, and snipers. In addition, the Central Command will also receive additional combat battalions and intelligence collection teams as reinforcement,” the army said on Sunday.
The military also halted all exercises for conscripted soldiers, in order to focus on “handling violent riots,” the army said.
Additional soldiers have also been deployed to provide extra security to Israeli communities near the Gaza border. source
