Mossad Gets HAMAS “Rocket Godfather,” Knows Schalit Whereabouts; Trained by Soviets

By Debbie Schlussel

Well, I’ve been proven correct, yet again, about a man I said was a top HAMAS operative.  Nearly a month ago, I told you about the Mossad’s successful kidnapping of Dirar Abu Sisi, the engineer who ran Gaza’s power plants. Abu Sisi, who claimed he had nothing to do with HAMAS, was in the Ukraine, trying to escape Israel and attempting to secure Ukrainian citizenship (his wife, as I reported is a dumbass Ukrainian white woman convert to Islam, Veronika).  But as I noted, you don’t head the power plants in Gaza unless you are a top HAMAS operative.  And you can never escape the highly effective Mossad, which almost always gets its man (or woman), Josef Mengele notwithstanding.  In this case the man is, literally, a rocket scientist.


Dirar Abu Sisi: Mossad Kidnapped Rocket Godfather in Ukraine

Yesterday, Israel unsealed an indictment against Abu Sisi, and I was proven correct.  Not only is he a TOP HAMAS operative, he’s the “Rocket Godfather.”  Yes, Abu Sisi is in charge of developing and upgrading HAMAS missiles and directing the rocket attacks against innocent Israeli civilians.  And not only that, but he is one of the top officials of HAMAS’ military wing, the brains behind the terrorist organization’s plans and attacks on Israelis and others. His hand stretches from Syria to Mecca.  Abu Sisi founded and developed HAMAS’ military academy and also knows where kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Schalit is being held, which is the main reason he was captured.  I hope the Israelis tortured the heck out of him to try to find Schalit.  Israel cannot endure yet another release of Islamic terrorists for a kidnapped soldier.

The story is very interesting because it details how Abu Sisi learned to develop and upgrade HAMAS weapons through his university schooling in Ukraine, where he learned from a Russian professor, who formerly helped the Soviets.    If you think Muslims aren’t studying the same kinds of things here and elsewhere in the West, too, think again.  We are teaching them how to screw with us.  Every time you see a Saudi student, a Muslim student, a foreign student, you should wonder what they are studying here and why. Who told them to come here and study nuclear science or other similar technology? Who is paying for them to study here? With whom are they plotting and meeting?

Abu Sisi not only developed missiles in Gaza but was allegedly responsible for upgrading older rockets and increasing their range. . . .

According to the indictment, Abu Sisi received his doctorate at the Kharkov Military Engineering Academy and studied under Prof. Konstantin Petrovich, an expert in Scud missile control systems.

During his studies, Abu Sisi acquired extensive knowledge in missile development, control systems, propulsion and rocket stabilization.

After returning to the Gaza Strip and parallel to his work as an engineer for the Gaza electric company, Abu Sisi was secretly recruited into Hamas by the military commander of the terrorist organization at the time, Salah Shehadeh, and began working as one of their leading engineers for short- and long-range missiles.

Abu Sisi not only developed missiles in Gaza but was also, according to the charge sheet, responsible for upgrading thousands of older rockets and increasing their range and penetration capabilities. . . .

During his interrogation, officials said, Abu Sisi provided valuable intelligence information on Hamas’s military wing, its different branches and the decision-making process within the terror group.

In 2002, Abu Sisi met Sheikh Nizar Rayan, a spiritual leader of Hamas’s military wing, who was later assassinated during Operation Cast Lead in 2009. Rayan introduced Abu Sisi to various senior Hamas operatives, including Shehadeh. Due to his education as an engineer, Abu Sisi was asked by Shehadeh to assist in developing weaponry for Hamas.

He later joined a committee that was responsible for the research and development of weaponry, and was tasked with electrical engineering, dealing mostly with developing boosters and fins that stabilized and enhanced the range of Hamas’s arsenal of rockets.

In 2005, the committee asked Abu Sisi to begin working on increasing the range of rockets manufactured domestically in the Gaza Strip. Due to his involvement, Hamas was able to increase the range of the rockets from 6 km. to 9 km., and subsequently to 15 km.

In 2007, Abu Sisi assisted Hamas in increasing the rockets’ range . . . and participated in several experiments during which rockets were tested and fired into the Mediterranean. . . .

One of the anti-tank missiles that Abu Sisi helped develop is the Yassin, which has the ability to penetrate between 16 cm. and 26 cm. of reinforced steal. He also worked to increase the penetration to 37 cm.

Abu Sisi also developed an anti-tank mortar shell called Abu Rassin, which has a range of 100 meters and can penetrate 87 cm. of steel. He later made efforts to increase penetration to 100 cm, and worked on another anti-tank missile called Al Batar, which has a 100-m. range.

With Abu Sisi’s aid, Hamas translated Russian manuals of the Igla-S shoulder-to-air missile into Arabic.

After Operation Cast Lead in 2009, Hamas asked Abu Sisi to help establish a military academy in the Gaza Strip. In this position, Abu Sisi created a plan for the school that included three main subjects: military, administration and religion.

The plan was then submitted to various Hamas leaders during meetings in Abu Sisi’s house in 2009. In 2010, according to the indictment, Abu Sisi met with Hamas operatives from Syria during a trip to Mecca.

Analysis of the Shin Bet (Israel’s FBI) indictment by Yaakov Katz:

The allegations raised against Abu Sisi in the Beersheba District Court on Monday tell the story of a different kind of terrorist – not the one who opens fire at IDF troops or plants bombs along the Gaza border, but of the brains behind it all.

Abu Sisi appears, from the indictment, to have been a critical asset for Hamas, whose recruitment into the ranks of Izzadin Kassam in 2002 helped turn a terrorist organization once notorious for suicide bombers into a military force with capabilities of strategic implications for the State of Israel. . . .

Had it not been for Abu Sisi, Israel might not have been forced to embark on Operation Cast Lead in 2009, since the rocket threat against Israel would not have been as severe. . . .

What made Abu Sisi unique was that he had studied in Ukraine in the late 1990s in the Kharkov military academy, under a professor who had been one of the key developers in the Soviet Scud missile program.

There, Abu Sisi was allowed to sit in on classes and learn about missile design, boosters, stabilizers and different power sources.

Monday’s indictment against Abu Sisi . . . provides unprecedented insight into the Hamas military wing and how it has turned into a military one would expect to see in a country – not just with brigades, battalions and special forces, but also with an in-house defense industry.

Katz believes that Abu Sisi might have been developing new weapons for HAMAS and ways of making it independent of Iran and Syria.

As Abu Sisi’s story demonstrates, half of the country is already within range of Hamas’s rockets. The question now is whether the IDF can deter Hamas from firing them.

Abu Sisi’s Islamic convert Ukrainian wife/baby factory, Veronika, is threatening to sue Israel and the Ukraine over her terrorist hubby’s kidnapping.  Good luck with that, habibti.

Many of the details surrounding the Mossad “intervention” in Ukraine and “transport” to Israel are sealed.

I like it.

Heh. Gotta love the Mossad. Their motto should be “you can run, but you can’t hide.”

[Debbie – Israel cannot endure yet another release of Islamic terrorists for a kidnapped soldier.]

Since when does logic enter this? My fear is the trade will be for Shalit, only he will be dead and mangled at the time.

I_AM_ME on April 5, 2011 at 4:06 pm

Debbie when they’re done with him the Israelis should strap him and a few of his engineer friends onto a missile and fire them back over to Gaza.

A1 on April 5, 2011 at 4:07 pm

The Casino Royale interrogation approach would be appropriate and effective for this clown. Good job, Mossad!

Occam's Tool on April 5, 2011 at 4:25 pm

gaza needs to be retaken as a permanent region of israel… shove the palestinians already there into egypt.

howard roark on April 5, 2011 at 4:35 pm

He’ll never be executed. And I intensely loathe the Med Club treatment Israel gives to imprisoned terrorists.

oil money of islamists has bought us and other government officials and bureaucrats, university board members and leftist professors – that is why islam is taking over this country as [people sleep. even a jew albeit a 5 foot midget bloomberg proved that one can never have enough money! and that piece of feces is billionaire mayor of nyc where there once were 2 plane crashes in one day into the same buildings.

Thanks, I needed some uplifting news.

“Every time you see a Saudi student, a Muslim student, a foreign student, you should wonder what they are studying here and why.”

This is nothing new. Back in the 1970s, I was a grad student at a major Midwest university. My housemate was a secular Persian (nice guy, btw) doing graduate work in nuclear engineering on a Pahlavi Foundation scholarship. (The Shah was still in charge.) I joked to him that it seemed at least 1/4 of the grad students in engineering seemed to be Arab or Persian. With the oil price rises that followed the October, 1973 war, those countries were flush with cash.

Debbie, the one point where I’m more skeptical is on the matter of Shalit. Information on his whereabouts is no doubt highly compartmentalized. Even if Hamas’ rocket engineer knew where he was (which I find doubtful), it’s pretty certain he’s been moved elsewhere by now.

Raymond in DC on April 5, 2011 at 6:44 pm

The Shah, RIP, was a friend of Israel, I believe. At least his Head of Mental Health, who was a beloved professor of mine, was.

Occam's Tool on April 5, 2011 at 9:25 pm

Great job Mossad. Is there any evidence that Shalit is even alive. Has there ever been an IDF soldier released alive by these spawn of satan??

I like the strategy of snatching the high level “brains” and technical people. It should be a one-way trip to interrogation center and then home to allah. Keep the jihad deprived of technical talent capable of anything more than lighing a match. Mossad can do it. If we (the US) ever regains leadership with “iron cajones”, our CIA and special forces can team up with Mossad to take down the whole damn international jihad.

joesixpack31 on April 5, 2011 at 10:22 pm

I guess ol’ Abu Sisi got “Mossadomized”.

Mossad rocks! More than anyone else, except perhaps Debbie, they make me wish I were Jewish.

It’s a shame that the Gaza Electric Authority is headed by HAMAS political hacks and/or terrorists. I know of people who work with that agency who are dedicated power professionals. Reading between the lines, they give some obvious hints of their frustration with HAMAS interfering with their ability to keep the lights on. These people cooperate on a daily basis with Israel because that’s where the bulk of their electric supply comes from. They take pride in their work and are frustrated by HAMAS telling the news media that their electrical distribution is unreliable all because of Israel. One of them, severely de-bunked an IEEE anti-Israel hack-job article in SPECTRUM magazine on the subject of keeping the lights on in Gaza.

Time does not allow me to elaborate. Suffice it to say that claims by Israel that HAMAS has used spare parts for electrical generation and distribution have merit. I could rant a long time about it. The case against Abu Sisi will hopefully shed some light on this.

The politicization of electrical distribution in Gaza is one of the more sickening aspect of HAMAS’ rule there. Unfortunately, the large corporations that make electrical equipment (some of who own large media companies) refuse to speak out because they have large contracts with Arab/OPEC customers. It’s a horrendous racket and people need to be aware that we are getting a very biased anti-Israel narrative about electrical supply and distribution in Gaza.

Without Western technology, the jihad would consist of groups of Bedouins riding around the desert, waving swords and spears and shouting “Allahu Akbar!’.
