Israeli minister: World may be wasting its money on Gaza

The countries who pledged vast sums to rebuild the Gaza Strip in Cairo Sunday will have made worthless donations if the people of the Gaza Strip return to terror, Transportation Minister Israel Katz said Sunday.

Katz, who is one of the ministers closest to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, issued the warning at a gathering of some 2000 Likud activists outside his Sukka on his ranch on the Moshav Kfar Ahim in the northern Negev.

"The Gazans must decide what they want to be Singapore or Darfur [which rhymes in Hebrew]," Katz said. "They can pick between economic recovery and war and destruction. If they choose terror, the world should not waste its money. If one missile will be fired, everything will go down the drain."

He quoted one of Hamas's founders, Mahmoud a-Zahar threaten Israel using terminology that the minister said sounded like it came from the Islamic State about turning Palestine into an Islamic Kingdom and destroying Israel. Katz said there was a much greater chance that Zahar will soon see in hell fellow Hamas founders Sheikh Ahmed Yassein and Abdel Aziz Rantisi, who were assassinated by Israel.

Islamic State issues death threat against Twitter CEO

The CEO of Twitter and other employees have received death threats from the Islamic State, after the microblogging service shut down some of the jihadists' accounts.

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo disclosed the calls for their "assassination" during a conversation at Vanity Fair's New Establishment Summit, the magazine reported.

“After we started suspending their accounts, some folks affiliated with the organization used Twitter to declare that employees of Twitter and their management should be assassinated,” Costolo said. “Obviously that’s a jarring thing for anyone to deal with and I’ve spent a long time talking to the company about it.”

In his conversation with biographer Walter Isaacson, Costolo also discussed the challenge of balancing freedom of speech with the dissemination negative or harmful content, such as IS beheadings of journalists and aid workers.

Is there anyone to be notified that someone replied to a thread you commented on?

There must be some way. It is impossible for me to keep on trying to check threads.
