Sad But True

University heads: IDF interfering in enrollment process

In letter to Barak, Council of University Presidents say Israeli institutions 'open to all those who meet academic demands, irrespective of race, sex, religion or nationality'; professors join petition against restrictions imposed on Palestinian students
Moran Zelikovitch

In a harsh letter to Defense Minister Ehud Barak, the Council of University Presidents (CUP) demanded Tuesday that the security establishment stop intervening in the enrollment process at Israel's higher education institutions.


"This constitutes blatant and harmful intervention on the part of military elements in considerations that are strictly academic," the university heads said in the letter, which was drafted in protest of the disqualification of students, particularity Palestinian, from taking certain courses or from enrolling in Israeli academic institutions altogether.


"Since its inception the State of Israel has adamantly upheld the tradition of academic freedom," the letter said, "we expect the security establishment to preserve this tradition and deal solely with security-related matters.


"Israeli universities open their gates to all those who meet the academic demands, irrespective of race, sex, religion or nationality," the CUP told Barak.


Meanwhile, five professors have turned to the High Court of Justice and asked that their names be added to a petition filed by Gisha –Legal Center for Free Movement – against the restrictions on the entrance of Palestinians looking to enroll in Israeli universities, saying such restrictions "assist those who support the academic boycott of Israel".


In October 2006 Gisha filed a petition on behalf of Sawsan Salameh, a West Bank resident who was accepted to a doctoral program at Hebrew University of Jerusalem but was denied entry into Israel by the IDF. In accordance with the court's ruling, the Defense Ministry lifted its restriction on the entrance of Palestinian students into Israel, but set strict criteria for their entry permits.


The security establishment determined that Palestinians will be prohibited from enrolling in studies that "may be used against the State of Israel" and limited the number of Palestinian students to 70. In addition, universities were obligated to state why they wanted to accept each Palestinian enrollee.


The position of the university heads and that of Education Minster Yuli Tamir Knesset Education Committee Chairman Michael Melchior is that any Palestinian student who is accepted to an Israeli university should be allowed entry pending security clearance.


"For many years Jews in Europe suffered from restrictions on their academic freedom, which manifested themselves in Numerus clausus (one of the many methods used to limit the number of Jewish students at universities," Tel Aviv University Professor Zvi Mazeh said in the request.


Hebrew University Professor Ehud de Shalit said, "Once a student is accepted, he must be treated just as any other student would, regardless of whether he or she comes from China, France or the West Bank."



One would think that to be a university president the person would have to be smart.

The problem is that these presidents of universities in Israel are very intelligent, but at the same time very stupid.

Not wanting the IDF or the Shaback to keep out Palestinians is just stupid, no it is suicidal.

This is just as stupid as , Prof. Amiram Goldblum one of the idiots that founded Peace Now and is too stupid to identify that his enemy number one priority is still, dead Jews and the good professor wants to readmit a terrorist to the PHD program. This is after a student one Adel Hadm stole bomb making materials from the lab.

I wish the USA or the EU would give these stupid idiots visas so they can move out of Israel for good and let the rest of us get on with the war so that we may achieve victory over our enemies and then maybe have a chance at true peace.

Likud MK Supports Pension for Fugitive Arab MK 26 Tammuz 5768, 29 July 08 01:49 by Hana Levi Julian

(IsraelNN.com) Likud Knesset Member Reuven Rivlin, a nationalist who fought the 2005 Disengagement from Gaza, is backing pension payments to former Israeli Arab Knesset Member Azmi Bishara, who fled the country to avoid facing charges of treason.

Bishara allegedly received several hundred thousand dollars from Hizbullah in exchange for delivering intelligence information during the 2006 Second Lebanon War. He was also in touch with intelligence agents from other unnamed countries.

The former Arab Balad party MK was to be charged with aiding the enemy in wartime, transmitting information to the enemy, contacting a foreign agent and money laundering.

MK Rivlin argued that Bishara is innocent until proven guilty and that revoking the pensions payments would "harm the foundations of democracy in the deeper sense of the word." Legislators have introduced bills calling for the revocation of monthly payments to Bishara, who fled to Qatar.



For all those people that seem to love the Likud and think it is a conservative political party, see the true face iof the Likud.

They all from Bibi on down talk a good game but when it comes to man up and really rule as a conservative they fail most of the time.

Israel need not spend time worrying about this traitors pension, they need to plan on how to kill this traitor.

Israel is at war and during war traitors pay for their treachery will their lives.

ISRAELI COURT EXPELS THREE JEWS FROM WEST BANK WITHOUT TRIAL

www.israeljustice.com:80/news2.asp?key=142 Monday, July 28, 2008

JERUSALEM -- An Israeli court has ordered three Jews expelled from the
West Bank without a trial or evidence as part of a military clampdown on
Jewish movement in the region.

Jerusalem Magistrate Ilta Siskind ordered the three who live in West
Bank Jewish communities, Efrion Oppenheimer, Arieh Davis and Alexander
Ostrovsky, expelled from the region for 90 days despite the lack of a
complainant or evidence or correct identification procedures.

"Before me is a request to release the suspects on the condition that
they are expelled from Judea and Samaria for the period of 90 days, a bond
and a third party guarantee and that they will appear before the police when
called," Siskind said on July 24. "The expulsion from Judea and Samaria is
until Oct. 10, 2008, except for the area of their homes. The personal bond
and the third party guarantee is set at 10,000 [$2,942] shekels each to
ensure the conditions for their release and they will appear before police
when requested."

The three and a 17 year-old were arrested on July 23 as they reached the
Jewish community of Maalei Michmas, after they set out for a hike with at
least another six youths from Kochav HaShachar in Samaria. Police said the
other six youths fled and escaped arrest.

According to the police charge sheet, based on reports from Bedouins and
Palestinians, at least 10 youths in the group were involved in piercing
tractor tires and a water pipe along the way between Kochav Hashachar and
Maalei Michmas. But the first complainant cited on the charge sheet hadn't
made a complaint.

"The complainant hasn't yet come to complain," police detective Yair
Aharon told Siskind. "But we have his details and he will reach us through
the sheikh."

Aharon said that the group continued on the hike and vandalized other
tractor wheels and water pipes although, police said, they didn't have any
physical evidence of the damage and had failed to investigate the
complaints.

"The evidence that we have is that of the complainants themselves who
pointed to the [Jewish] residents," Aharon said. "For example, Ostrovsky was
in the area with his big mixed breed [canani] dog. He was with al the group
but they [Bedoiun] didn't say that he caused any damage but he was with the
others on this 'hike'. Regarding the suspect Davis, he said he didn't do
anything but afterwards, he refused to cooperate [with the investigation]."

Davis said that the police did not conduct a live identity line-up, or a
photographic identity procedure.

"They brought a [Bedouin] into the investigation room and he pointed,"
Davis said. "They [police] said because I was part of the group so I was
responsible for what happened."

The Bedoiun also failed to identify the third suspect as someone who
participated in the alleged vandalism.

"About Efrion, they said that he was with the others and he had an M-16
[rifle]," Aharon said.

Defense Attorney Reuven Hamburger asked whether [Efrion] Oppenheimer had
threatened anyone.

"None of them was identified as someone who punctured tires or
threatened with weapons but everyone said they were in the area," Aharon
said.

The police detective then advised the magistrate to accept police
recommendations for punishment to deter other young Jews from hiking in
Judea and Samaria, between the Jewish communities and disturbing the
Palestinians and Bedouin.

"We are speaking about a hike that is organized for the purpose of
causing damage and destruction," Aharon said. "I know that next week there
is going to a similiar exhibition [hike]. I believe that the decision of the
court will have consequences and an influence and they will learn how to
behave because of this decision and if the court will agree to our request,
this will prevent phenomenon like these," Aharon said.

Israeli civil rights organizations have criticized the police and the
court for not investigating before punishing the suspects.

"We haven't received a complaint but on the face of it, it appears that
there is a lack of justice," Nirit Moskowitz, spokesperson for the
Association for Civil Rights in Israel, said. "They should investigate
first."

Left-wing activists also criticized the hastiness with which the army
has recently issued closed military zone orders in an effort to clamp down
on the movement of Jews within Judea and Samaria.

On July 24, buses carrying young hikers to the march through Judea and
Samaria were stopped at roadblocks by a military order restricting entrance
of Jews who were not residents of Samaria.

"No person shall pass the roadblock unless he has permission from me or
from someone whom I have authorized," the order issued by Samaria Brigade
Commander, Col.Yitzhak Bar, on his third day in the position, said. "This is
required for security purposes and for maintaining public order."

The office of Maj. Gen. Gadi Shamni, head of central command, denied the
existence of the order but the closure was heavily criticized.

"It's good that an extreme officer has reduced to the absurd the legal
status that exists in Judea and Samaria whereby hundreds of thousands of
Jews are living under military rule and are subject to his impulsive mood
swings," National Union parliamentarian Benny Elon said.

The army has recently issued an abundance of closed military zone orders
that has also angered left-wing activists.

"The army rushes too quickly to issue 'closed military zone orders' and
to prevent the entrance of Israelis into the area," Yariv Oppeneheimer, head
of Peace Now, said.



This is what life can be like in Israel.

Israel is not America when it comes to individual liberty and freedoms.

Israel needs leaders that will seek to increase the liberty and freedom of the Jewish people in the Land that G-D gave us.

Big Surprise

IDF Warns of Revolving Door Terrorists

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas terrorists and prisoners who have been freed from Israel are planning to attack Israelis, according to an unidentified senior IDF officer quoted by the Hebrew newspaper Haaretz. Critics of the policy of releasing terrorists have warned that they will return to terror despite their signing documents promising to distance themselves from violence.

The military officer noted that many of those plotting attacks on Israelis learned tactics while sitting in jails along with senior terrorists.



Can this be a surprise to anyone?

The best method for dealing with terrorist and their supporters is to kill them, either in the field or after you have extracted all the intelligence you can from them give them a trial and then hang them.

A dead terrorist can never murder a Jew again.

IDF Kills Hamas Terrorist Responsible for Dimona Attack

(IsraelNN.com) The Hamas Izz al-Din Brigade terrorist who masterminded the suicide bombing and prepared the explosives that took the life of an elderly Israeli woman in Dimona last February, was himself killed early Sunday morning in an IDF counterterrorism operation in the Rafidiyeh neighborhood in Hebron.

IDF soldiers from the elite Duvdevan unit circled the building and then shelled the home of 25-year-old Shihab al-Natsheh after he refused to surrender and instead began shooting at the troops, according to local residents. The soldiers also arrested his assistant, Wal Bitar as well as a second Hamas terrorist, Aba Abu Aisha.

The terrorist organization announce it would avenge the operative's death. "Our response will be swift and painful," said the group in a statement released to the media.

Pot Calling The Kettle Black

Friday, July 25, 2008 Radical Israeli Fahima complains: Zakariya Zubeidi is Israeli security service's whore

Tali Fahima: Zakariya Zubeidi is Israeli security service's whore
By Haaretz Service Last update - 13:35 25/07/2008
www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1005273.html

Tali Fahima, a Jewish Israeli woman who was tried and convicted for her
contacts with Zakariya Zubeidi, former Jenin chief of the Al-Aqsa Martyrs'
Brigades, criticized Zubeidi on Thursday, saying that he had turned into the
"whore of the Shin Bet security service."

Speaking to Channel 10 news, Fahima complained that Zubeidi, who was once on
Israel's most wanted list for his role in the Palestinian Intifada, was now
on friendly terms with the Shin Bet when it served his purposes.

Fahima referred to Zubeidi's recent request that the Shin Bet allow him
leave the West Bank city of Jenin and undergo eye surgery in Ramallah.

The Shin Bet had removed Zubeidi from its most wanted list in a gesture to
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas last year, along with other militants
who turned in their weapons, on the condition that they refrain from leaving
the city in which they live, under close Palestinian police supervision.
Fahima's rage was sparked when Zubeidi negotiated with the Shin Bet, which
he professed to view as his enemy, over permission to leave Jenin to go to
Ramallah.

Fahima, who served two years in prison for charges which include supporting
a terror organization and aiding an enemy during wartime, told Channel 10 "I
refuse to see him and I won't even speak to him." She explained that it was
Zubeidi's duty to inform the Palestinian people that he had negotiated with
the Shin Bet to further his own personal needs.

Fahima added that Zubeidi "talks about his private pleasures, like being
able to travel around without an [IDF] drone following him, like the
occupation is over, like everything is fine - It was nice to believe in the
fairy tale, but there are no fairy tales in the resistance. Zubeidi is a
disgrace to the resistance. We are still living under an occupation."

However, Fahima added in a personal jab that Zubeidi "is not a big
terrorist. A man who fires bullets into the air is not a big terrorist."

Zubeidi responded to Fahima's remarks, saying "this is the first time in
eight years that I've left [the West Bank city of] Jenin. I came to Ramallah
to take care of my eyes that were hurt from an explosive device."

"Tali Fahima only experienced a small part of the Palestinian people's
problems," he added.



No Tali, your Arab boy friend is not a whore, there is only one whore here.

You!

Fight Back Or Die

Activists to test Gaza naval blockade
Jul. 24, 2008 Yaakov Katz , THE JERUSALEM POST
www.jpost.com
/servlet/Satellite?cid=1215331093036&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

Taking the protest against the Gaza blockade to a new level, two boats
packed with foreign left-wing activists will attempt to sail from Cyprus to
the sealed Gaza harbor in two weeks' time.

The operation is being directed by members of the International Solidarity
Movement and the Israeli Commission against House Demolitions. A Web site,
FreeGaza, has been set up to collect donations and update the public.

The group - which numbers some 40 activists - has purchased two boats, one
called SS Free Gaza and the other SS Liberty, named after the USS Liberty
that was mistakenly bombed by the Israel Air Force during the Six Day War.
Thirty-four American sailors were killed in the bombing.

The boats are scheduled to set sail from Cyprus on August 5 and arrive,
according to organizer Angela Godfrey-Goldstein, at the Gaza coast a day or
two later.

"The purpose is to get into the Gaza harbor and breach the siege,"
Godfrey-Goldstein said Thursday. "The IDF will probably stop us but part of
the point is to show that Gaza is closed off."

She said that if the boats were stopped by the Israel Navy, they would
likely remain at sea for a few days in an effort to get the government to
change its policy and allow free access to Gaza by sea.

Such access is not allowed and the waters off the coast are patrolled by the
navy, mainly due to weapons-smuggling from Egypt and other countries.

In April, The Jerusalem Post reported that Iran was increasing its efforts
to smuggle arms into the Strip by dropping floating devices off the Gaza
coast that are then picked up by Gazan fisherman.

According to defense officials, Iran was sending rockets and other advanced
weaponry to Hamas and Islamic Jihad in the Gaza Strip via tunnels dug under
the Philadelphi Corridor from Sinai as well as by sea. Officials said the
navy was doing an effective job in curbing the smuggling by sea but that
there were shipments that Israeli forces had not succeeded in intercepting.

The IDF Spokesman's Office would not say what the navy intends to do in the
event that the protest boats try to enter the Gaza harbor.



The navy needs to intercept these two boats on the way to Israel and sink them far away from the press.

When asked about it the reply should be "No Boats entered Israeli waters, sorry we have no knowledge of such craft in Israeli waters"

Israel must also fight the ISM like we used to fight Fatah around the world, we must hunt these scum down and eliminate them.

Israel must fight back, or die.

Never Talk To Arabs

JOR

DAN TIMES 24 July '08:"Egypt bans 'Brink of a Revolution' -
author",Agence France Press
CAIRO (AFP) - Egypt has banned a book by a British journalist about Egyptian
politics and society entitled "Inside Egypt: The Land of the Pharaohs on the
Brink of a Revolution", the author told AFP on 23 July. "According to my
publisher, The American University in Cairo bookstore ordered 50 copies of
"Inside Egypt" a few days ago, only to cancel the order a few hours later
after being informed by Egyptian government censors that the book is banned
in Egypt," John R. Bradley told AFP. The book's New York-based publishers
Palgrave Macmillan confirmed the book had been banned in Egypt. The book
"examines the junctions of Egyptian politics and society as they slowly
disintegrate under the twin pressures of a ruthless military dictatorship at
home and a flawed Middle East policy in Washington," the publishers said in
a statement. It was not possible to get any official confirmation of the ban
because Wednesday is a public holiday in Egypt.

This is the perfect example of why we must never negotiate with Arabs, Camp David Peace Accords with Egypt.

We would not have fought a war with Egypt if we still had the Sinai and we never had made "peace" with Egypt.

The government controlled press in Egypt runs anti Israeli editorials and cartoons every day that are the equal of those of the Nazi's.

Without the Camp David Accords in place Egypt would;d still be in T62 tanks like Iraq and Syria and worn out MIG fighters. Today Egypt has Abrahams tans and F16 fighter planes from America, due to the agreement.

It doesn't take a military genus to know the IDF if it had to fight a war against Egypt would rather do it against old worthless Soviet hardware than against state of the art American equipment.

So the radical Muslims take over Egypt and Israel will now have to fight against a better equipped Egyptian military how many men will die due to the stupidity of Israeli leaders long since dead of natural causes.

Shin Bet head Diskin: Gaza lull is lifeline to Hamas By Amos Harel Last update - 07:18 24/07/2008 www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1004885.html

Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin believes that the cease-fire agreement in the
Gaza Strip serve the interests of Hamas, not Israel, and charged that by
agreeing to the deal Israel has "offered Hamas a lifeline."

Speaking before the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Tuesday,
the security services head argued that Israel's deterrent has "suffered
substantially" as a result of events in the past three years - the
disengagement from the Gaza strip, the Hamas takeover there and the Second
Lebanon War.

Diskin said the tahadiyeh - the cease-fire agreement - is stable because all
sides have an interest in maintaining it and because Hamas is imposing its
will on smaller Palestinian factions in the Strip.

"The cease-fire gave Hamas a lifeline. We are not attacking them. We eased
the blockade on them at a time when they are not committed to stopping their
rearmament," Diskin told the committee.

"Hamas presents itself as the victor in this confrontation, as having
managed to hold out against the Israeli siege. The lull is being presented
as an impressive achievement on its part," Diskin said.

In return Israel gains a temporary lull, which Diskin said "is essentially
an illusion. In our assessment the rocket attacks will resume at some point
in the future."

The head of the Shin Bet noted that "Israel's situation is very problematic
in its struggle against radical Islam. Palestinian daring against Israel has
increased since Hamas took over [in the Strip] while Israel's deterrence has
suffered a very substantive blow."

Diskin briefed the MKs on the improved rockets produced by the Palestinians
in the Gaza Strip. He said that Islamic Jihad has independently produced
rockets with a 19-kilometer range and that Shin Bet had intelligence
indicating that military-grade rockets, whose range is longer, have been
smuggled into the territory. Some of those rockets, Diskin added, can reach
Ashdod, 30 kilometers away.

Militant groups in the Gaza Strip have also obtained military-grade mortars
from Iran, with a range of approximately nine kilometers, Diskin said.

He said there has been no drastic change in Egyptian efforts to prevent arms
from being smuggled into the strip. Diskin confirmed, however, that there
has been some improvement, but argued that "Egypt accepts the fact that
there is smuggling from its territory... [which] is part of the Middle
Eastern theater of the absurd. We have asked the Egyptians to deal with the
families of smugglers operating in Sinai."

Once again one very important word is missing from the vocabulary of Israeli leaders.

Victory.

Nothing is more sweet or more necessary than victory over your enemies.

To take the risks with individual Jewish lives that the government does is immoral. This says nothing of the damage the current leadership is doing to the future of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.

Victory is what must be our goal and nothing less will do.

We must never talk with the Arabs, for history shows every time we have lost. Where on the battle field we have won every time until the current leadership took us to the Second Lebanon war, which we lost.

Soldier who killed peace activist denied appeal

Taysir Hayb tells military committee hearing his appeal that he sent taped apology to family of British peace activist Tom Hurndall, whom Hayb killed while he was shielding Palestinian children from gunfire; however family denies receiving tape
Hanan Greenberg

A special IDF committee has denied an appeal by the soldier Taysir Hayb, who was convicted of killing British photographer and peace activist Tom Hurndall, for early release from prison. Hayb has served half of his sentence, and the committee determined that when he completes two-thirds his case will be reconsidered.


More Time
Court seeks more jail time for Hurndall killer / Hanan Greenberg
Military prosecutor pushing for tougher sentence for IDF soldier convicted of killing British photographer in Rafah in 2003, arguing that initial 8-year prison sentence insufficient
Full story
Hurndall, 21, was shot in the head during a protest in Rafah, while acting as a human shield for Palestinian children that had been caught in the crossfire. He lost consciousness following the injury and eventually died from complications of the onset of pneumonia. The soldier was convicted of manslaughter and sentenced to eight years in prison.

During a debate that took place in the Haifa Military Court Hayb's attorney, Idan Pesach, asked that the soldier be freed from prison due to good behavior and the success of a rehabilitation program in which he had taken part. The military prosecutor objected to the appeal, claiming it would harm relations with Britain.

Pesach denounced the prosecution's claim and said the case had nothing to do with diplomatic relations. Hayb received the right to speak and apologized for the incident in a trembling voice, saying he understood the grief of the Hurndall family.

Hayb also claimed he had never intended to harm the British protestor, and was only tying to intimidate him. He told the committee that he had recently asked to be filmed asking the Hurndall family's forgiveness. He said the tape had been sent to the family.

'Never received tape'

However when Ynet contacted the Hurndall family for comment, Tom's mother Jocelyn told Ynet that the family had never received the tape. "We have never received any tape from the soldier," she said. "If we had it would have gone through our lawyer, and he didn't inform us of the existence of any such tape."

She added that the soldier's apology was not as important to them as official apologies by the State. "The apologies we are waiting for are from the government of Israel, and the Israeli prime minister. The soldier is merely a pawn. We as a family didn't receive anything and this is the first time I am hearing about the committee for his parole. I will check with my lawyer regarding this information," she concluded.

The Hurndall incident caused international and British turmoil and was considered to be one of the most distressing events of the intifada. It caused tension between Britain and Israel, and the Hurndall family has recently announced their plans to file a civil suit.

If an apolgy must be issued it should be the State of Israel that issues it to the jailed soldier Taysir Hayb.

This soldier should never have been charged much less been forced to sit in prison for this long.

The bad guy in this story is the Arab loving Jew hating Brit that put his nose in our business. Tom Hurndall never should have come to Israel and sided with the enemies of the Jewish people.

I will never shed a tear for these international scum that come to side with the poor Palestinians, maybe if we killed a bunch more of them the rest of these Jew hating scum would stay home and protest people eating meat or some such other liberal stupidity.

Tom Hurndall parents should give Taysir Hayb an apology.

Arm The People

Stopping the bulldozers

Well-armed civilians may be only way to counter bulldozer attacks
Eitan Haber

During the dozens of years of terrorism faced by the State of Israel throughout its history, we have seen all sorts of “terror fads.” For example, in the early 1990s there was a “trend” of terrorists who used knives to stab their victims. All sorts of Palestinians who possessed knives and even pocketknives would appear behind the victim’s back and stab him or her.

The most well known attack of this sort was the murder of a teenage girl, Helena Rapp, who was stabbed to death in the town of Bat Yam, south of Tel Aviv, in 1992. Some observers argued that this murder helped decide the general elections held that year in favor of Yitzhak Rabin, after a large public became fed up with the terror undertaken by knifemen.

For us here in Israel, Tuesday’s bulldozer terror attack in Jerusalem, the second one in the series of such attacks, is a danger sign – if only because in such cases the terrorists usually operate on their own. They also do not need to acquire weapons, they do not talk to other people about their plans, and they do not embark on their attacks after they get “pissed off” or planned the assaults cold-bloodedly.

In the best case scenario, such attacker can be stopped at an early stage, as was the case in the attack in Jerusalem on Tuesday. In the worst case scenario, the terrorist is stopped too late, after he already hurt and killed a great number of people.

Yet the only apparent solution, at this time, to this type of terrorism is to have many brave civilians
carrying arms, alongside more police officers and other security officers at sites that can be expected to be targeted. This is what happened on Tuesday.

So who should we be thanking and congratulating? The two people, a civilian and a Border Guard officer, who sent the latest “crazy guy” for medical examinations with God. We should say thank you on behalf of those who do not even know they owe these two people their lives.



I have long said that every Jew and anyone else that has served in the IDF should be able to purchase as many firearms as their budget will allow.

I don't mean limiting the types of firearms to pistols, let the people purchase M16's, Uzi's and any other type of assault weapon they wish to purchase.

Israel should not have the draconian gun control that it does, it is a shame that Jews living in America and Switzerland have more liberty than Jews in the Jewish homeland.

Currently the only people that want gun control in Israel are the terrorist that could be stopped by more civilians being armed and the members of Knesset that want to have no threat to their looting of the country.

Give us, Liberty or Death.

Policeman Succumbs to Terror-Attack Wounds


20 Tammuz 5768, 23 July 08 10:26
by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) A Border Guard policeman who was shot by a Palestinian terrorist earlier this month died of his wounds on Wednesday, just a day after the city's second tractor-terror attack.

David Shriki of Rishon LeTzion is the name of the dead policeman. He has been in critical condition since Friday night, July 11, when he was shot in the head by a Palestinian terrorist near Lions Gate of the Old City. The terrorist also shot and wounded another policeman in the attack, but escaped into a nearby Muslim cemetery after two additional Border Guard policemen arrived on the scene and shot at him.

Though security cameras caught much of the attack on film, the attacker's identity could not be ascertained, and he is still at large. A gag order has been placed on the police investigation of the attack.

The death brought to 13 the total number of Jerusalem terrorist casualties this year: In January, 20-year-old Border Guard policeman Rami Zuari from Be'er Sheva was killed in a terrorist shooting outside the northern Jerusalem refugee camp of Shuafat. In March, 8 yeshiva students were slaughtered in the infamous Merkaz Harav attack, and earlier this month, three Jerusalemites were murdered by the first bulldozer terrorist.

A total of 28 people have been murdered in Palestinian terror attacks in Israel this year.

Hamas Praises Attack: 'Natural Reaction'

(IsraelNN.com) Hamas praised Tuesday's bulldozer attack, saying that it was a "natural reaction" to Israeli actions.

Israel's Army Radio reported the Tuesday statement from Hamas leaders. Ghasan Abu-Tir, the terrorist who drove his bulldozer through traffic on Jerusalem's King David Street, is related to a Hamas politician currently jailed in Israel.

Killing of terrorist captured on video

Caught on video: Bulldozer driver goes on rampage in Jerusalem, wounds 18 people; terror attack ends quickly thanks to rapid respone by settler Yaakov Asael, Druze Border Guard officer Amal Ganem who shot and killed terrorist
Efrat Weiss


The video shows Ganem fire at the terrorist from one side of the bulldozer. In the backdrop a man is heard saying "is there anyone here who can provide first aid? There's somebody wounded here."


Ganem is then seen moving over to the other side of the bulldozer, while an eyewitness tells him that the driver is still alive: "He's not dead, he's dead." Ganem then aims his weapon and fires several bullets, bringing the incident to an end.

Terrorist shot (Video: Moked 4040, Gissin TV)

The camera then shifts to a religious man who is asked for his name by the photographer. The man replies "Yaki Asael" and the photographer replies "Yaki, you were the first one to fire. Way to go." Asael gives the thumbs up signal and walks away modestly, without taking credit for shooting the terrorist.

Officer Ganem, who is Druze, said later that as opposed to the previous bulldozer attack he refrained from climbing on the vehicle and instead fired from several feet away. "The lesson from the previous attack was not to mount the bulldozer…I improved my position and fired at him," he said.


"After I fired and saw that he was neutralized, I attempted to open the bulldozer's doors, but apparently the terrorist also learned some lessons from the previous attack and locked the doors," Ganem added. "I then mounted the bulldozer, broke the windshield, and opened the door. I saw that he was no longer alive, so I didn't fire again."


Meanwhile, Druze community leader Sheikh Muafiek Tarif said: "The Druze sect has showen its loyalty to the State of Israel for years now. Today, the resourcefulness of Amal Ganem, a Druze community member, proved our loyalty to the State of Israel. Ganem, who acted quickly and without hesitation in order to prevent further casualties, is a model to thousands of young Druze who have acted and are acting on behalf of the State of Israel."

Hoe un PC cn this story get a settler and a minority shooting dead a terrorist, I love it.

First of all good job guys.

I must once again point out that the Druze living in Israel are a wonderful people, that have paid a very high price in their blood to defend the State of Israel and the Jewish people. They trace their line back to Yethro in the Torah the father in law of Moses.

Samir Kuntar on El Jazeera

Fatah=Hamas=Fatah

Fatah, Hamas Officials Join in Graveside Ceremony

(IsraelNN.com) Fatah and Hamas officials made a rare public appearance together on Sunday when they visited the graves of terrorists, including the tombstone memorializing Hamas founder Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. The visit was organized by the Popular Struggle Front in order to display a how of unity between two the rival parties, according to the Bethlehem-based Maan news agency.

Fatah leader Ibrahim Abu An-Naja said, "We wish our unity had not been harmed and we hope we can prove ourselves loyal to our 'martyrs'. They left behind them a will which should have been enough to preserve our unity. Unfortunately, we did not live up to their will."



President Bush please pay attention Fatah of Abbas is your "peace" partner. Mr. President please note that Abbas your man issued a diplomatic passport to Samir Kuntar and called him a hero.

Again please lets remember Hamas is Fatah and Fatah is Hamas.

GREAT JOB "Z"

IDF Arrests Hamas Woman Legislator in Shechem

(IsraelNN.com) Army soldiers arrested a Hamas legislator and nearly 20 other suspected terrorists in Shechem Sunday night, Arab sources said. The IDF reported that 18 wanted terrorists were arrested, but no details were released. The legislator was named as Muna Mantzur, whose husband was a terrorist killed by Israeli forces seven years ago.

Businessmen, moneychangers and students also were taken into custody by soldiers. One of those arrested is the manager of the Shechem mall, which the IDF has ordered closed because of its dealings with Hamas leaders. The PA has denied the charges.



GEAT JOB "Z".

Pass on a job well done to the lads.

What A Sorry Mess

Knesset legal advisor criticizes bills calling to revoke Bishara's benefits

Nurit Elstein says bills calling to revoke pension funds of former MK suspected of aiding Hizbullah unconstitutional. 'We must remember that he was a lawmaker for 11 years and was never even indicted,' she says
Ronen Medzini

Knesset legal advisor Nurit Elstein cast harsh criticism Monday on three bills calling to revoke some of the benefits given to former MK Azmi Bishara.

In a letter drafted by Elstein ahead of Tuesday's House Committee hearing on the matter, the legal counsel said the bill constitutes an infringement of ownership laws.

Bishara, the former chairman of the Balad party, fled Israel last year after being accused of treason and aiding and abetting the enemy - Hizbullah – during the Second Lebanon War. He was never indicted.

The House Committee is expected to discuss preparing three bills calling to revoke Bishara's benefits for their first readings. As a former legislator, Bishara is entitled to a pension, free newspapers and additional funds given to help him remain in contact with the public.

The first bill, drafted by MK David Rotem of Yisrael Beitenu, calls to revoke the pension funds of any legislator suspected of jeopardizing State security.


'Never convicted of a criminal offense'

Two additional bills, initiated by MKs Yitzhak Levy, Effie Eitam and Zvi Hendel of the National Union – NRP party, ask to strip Bishara of his monthly pension funds until he returns to Israel to face a police investigation.

In her opinion Elstein wrote, "The bills raise serious difficulties with regards to the basic principles of our judicial system and the legislation pertaining to the revoking of benefits.

"Revoking one's right to receive pension funds, particularly after the employee retires, constitutes a severe infringement of ownership rights, which, according to Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty, cannot be violated. In addition, stripping employees of their rights in an imbalanced manner, as the bill proposes, hinders equality, which is recognized as a constitutional right."

According to Elstein, MK Rotem's proposal calls for punishing Mks who have yet to be convicted, and is therefore a "deviation from the existing judicial structure".

As for the bills presented by members of the National Union-NRP party, Elstein said "we must remember that Bishara served as an MK for 11 years, was not convicted of a criminal offense and was not even indicted".


How can Israel keep getting so many things wrong?

This should be a simple matter, first Bishara should have had his salary and all compensation from Israel cut off as soon as he fled a criminal investigation of treason.

Second the government should have given the order to kill this traitor as soon as he fled Israel and started to speak against Israel in Arab countries.

If the Knesset is unable to do the correct thing in this issue then we should grow up as Israelis and understand it is time for all the existing political parties to be voted out of the Knesset along with every single member of the Knesset.

The survival of Israel when it comes to something as cut and dry as this issue should cut across political ideology left or right should all want this traitor to be given justice Israeli style.

Or maybe the old Israeli style.

I have never started a posting with a definition of a word before, but I want to remind my fellow parents with children at risk of being kidnapped by the enemies of Israel of how they should act under those horrific circumstances.

I am writing this as a parent that has 100% of my children, at high risk, of being victims of a kidnapping.

We must remember, Israel has never received any of our children back alive, from a kidnapping.

We must also face certain hard to face facts, our children if grabbed will be subject to torture and mutilation that would have made Mengele proud.

In the training of police and military special units we have found that scenario training helps the warriors perform better in very difficult situations. I now call on my fellow parents to start making themselves ready before they may be, G-D forbid faced with this situation for real.

Understand the terrorist have multiple missions that they seek to perform.

1. The kidnapping of your child.
2. The torture and the murder of your child. They will mutilate your child's body beyond belief,
as they did to Regev and Goldwasser.
3. The forcing of the Israeli government to capitulate to evil and release from justice, terrorist that will murder other
parents children in the future.
4. The terrorist will seek to rob you of your dignity, while you beg for the life of your child in the world press.


With an understanding of the above you can fight back by keeping your dignity. This can be done by doing the following.

First, think about the kidnapping of your child now, face the pain and make a plan that will keep your dignity.

Second, if G-D forbid you child is grabbed never talk to the press, these parasites will force you to loose your dignity, that is what they do. Issue a written statement to the press by a neutral third party, that states you are praying for the safe return of your child, nothing more.

Third put pressure on the Israeli government not to exchange live terrorist for the body of your child. Think beyond your own private hell of the pain and think about the other parents that will loose their children due to the actions of the released terrorist.

Lastly now while life is normal and good start putting pressure on the Israeli government to use the death penalty for acts of terrorism.

I pray that none of us with children at risk are put into the hell of having a child grabbed, but we must stay strong and we must protect with our dignity and honor. For this is the best way to honor our child's suffering and sacrifice for the Jewish people.

For every time a parent begs the terrorist for there child's release, this demoralizes Am Israel and giving the terrorist one more victory.

Can Israel Be Any More Stupid, Yes

A laptop for every Palestinian child

US-based pro-Palestinian organization asks for Israel's help in distributing 1,000 laptop computers to Ramallah schools in order to improve Palestinian children's learning techniques

Itamar Eichner
Published: 07.20.08, 07:24 / Israel Activism

An American organization has requested Israel's assistance in a new initiative similar to the Israeli "computer for every child" project. The American Task Force on Palestine (ATFP), an organization committed to the welfare of the Palestinian people, asked that the State help transfer around 1,000 laptop computers to the West Bank city of Ramallah.


The project is led by Nick Negroponte, brother of US Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte, former director of national intelligence. Its goal is to provide Palestinian students with tools that will help improve thought and independent study, in order to better their learning achievements and the status of their teachers.


The program also aims to negate the traditional system of study, which requires students merely to memorize the material taught in class.


So far, the organization has purchased over 1,000 laptop computers and prepared them for urgent delivery to Ramallah, where they are to be distributed among the different elementary schools. The organization also plans to purchase thousands more and distribute them throughout the Palestinian territories.


The project is funded by the US State Department, and headed on the Palestinian side by top aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, Sabri Saydem. Saydem has recently informed Israel of the organization's request for assistance in distributing the computers.



Israel should release Samir Kuntar before we give every Palestinian child a lap top.

Oh wait, Israel did release Samir Kuntar, so I guess we will be stupid enough to facilitate this program to help raise the education level of our enemy.

This really is one of the more stupid ideas that Israel could get involved in. Small wonder the American State Department is funding it.

Al Qassam Brigades: Capturing Zionist soldiers still an option

Sunday, July 20, 2008


20 July 2008 Website of Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades - the armed branch of
the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas).
www.alqassam.ps/english/?action=showdetail&fid=1160

Abu Obaida, spokesman of the Qassam Brigades, has confirmed on Saturday
that capturing more Zionist soldiers still an option for the Palestinian
resistance in order to pressure the Zionist entity into releasing
Palestinian detainees.

In an interview with the local Palestine newspaper, Abu Obaida asserted that
"the recent Hizbullah-Zionist prisoners' swap deal proved that it is
possible to break the Zionist standards in releasing detainees, and that it
is also possible to achieve big victories on the occupation under the
pressure of the resistance".

But although he expressed hopes that the Hizbullah swap would help achieve
another swap deal in the Gaza Strip, Abu Obaida explained that the Gaza swap
deal would be more complicated than that of Hizbullah due to the
extraordinary conditions in Palestine under the occupation and due to the
Zionist siege on Gaza.

He also acknowledged that the big number of Palestinian captives in Zionist
jails, and the big number of Palestinian prisoners which the captors of
Shalit demand to be swapped with captured Zionist soldier Gilad Shalit had
possibly made the Zionist occupation government hesitant to accept a swap
deal with Hamas.

However, he added, pressure from the Zionist public to negotiate a swap deal
for Shalit were mounting, especially after the successful swap deal with
Hizbullah party in Lebanon.

"We could say that sooner or later, the Zionist occupation would finally bow
to our demands, and if entity doesn't, then there will be no deal at all",
affirmed Abu Obaida.

Moreover, Abu Obaida revealed that role of the Egyptian mediator in
pressuring the Zionist occupation government into accepting a swap deal with
Hamas was still weak in the absence of Arab and Muslim support for that
role.

"We indeed still view the Egyptian role in pressuring the occupation as
feeble, which is also considered one of the factors that delay the proposed
prisoners swap deal between the Palestinian resistance and the Zionist
entity", the Al Qassam Brigades spokesman, furthermore, underlined.

As far as the truce in Gaza Strip is concerned, Abu Obaida affirmed that the
Zionist occupation was disavowing its obligations towards the Palestinians
as stipulated in terms and conditions of the calm agreement, which, he
added, could force the Palestinian resistance factions to take a collective
decision to end the truce, and to resume military operations in order to
break the Zionist siege on Gaza.

In this regard, Abu Obaida confirmed readiness of Hamas Movement and the
rest of the Palestinian resistance factions to block and repel any possible
Zionist troops' adventure into the tiny Strip.

"We don't trust the Zionist occupation's goodwill, and thus, we have all the
right to remain vigilant and prepared in the event the Zionist occupation
breached the truce and opted for military confrontation with the Palestinian
resistance", stressed Abu Obaida.

In a related matter, resistance men of the Qassam Brigades, the military
wing of Hamas Movement, carried out military maneuvers in Gaza city using
live ammunition on Friday night.

According to residents of the city's southwestern suburb of Sabra, the
maneuvers were impressive, adding that the Al Qassam Brigades fighters were
very organized during those exercises.

Sources close to Hamas confirmed that the exercises were part of the Al
Qassam Brigades preparations for any possible military confrontation with
the Zionst troops in Gaza Strip

Hamas: 1,000 prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit

Sunday, July 20, 2008 Hamas: 1,000 prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit

Dr. Aaron Lerner - IMRA:

While the front page headline of the Hebrew Edition of Haaretz reads
"Hamas: 1,000 prisoners in exchange for Gilad Shalit"
www.haaretz.co.il/hasite/spages/1003459.html

The English edition title reads: "Hamas: Shalit talks on hold, Israel not
meeting truce terms"

==============
Hamas: Shalit talks on hold, Israel not meeting truce terms
By Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz Correspondent, and Agencies Last update - 00:00
20/07/2008
www.haaretz.com/hasen/spages/1003465.html

Hamas confirmed Saturday that the talks for the release of Israel Defense
Forces soldier Gilad Shalit were on hold. A senior Hamas figure said that
once the group understood that Israel was not fulfilling its end of the
cease-fire agreement, it had decided that continuing the Shalit talks would
be futile at this time.

The source told Haaretz it is unlikely a Hamas delegation will depart for
Cairo where renewed talks on a possible exchange deal would take place under
an Egyptian aegis.

However, despite the charges directed at Israel, Palestinian sources believe
Hamas isn't willing to be flexible about Shalit at this time due to the
recent prisoner swap with Hezbollah.

The same sources noted that the release of Samir Kuntar has led Hamas to the
conclusion that the radical Islamic organization should stick to its
demands, which includes the release of 1,000 prisoners, many of whom were
sentenced to life in prison for their role in suicide bomb attacks.

At a political rally in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, Ismail Haniyeh, who was
prime minister in a Hamas-led Palestinian government, called on Interior
Minister Said Sayam, to issue Samir Kuntar a diplomatic passport.

In an aggressive tone, Haniyeh told the crowd in Gaza that Hamas will not
give in on "any issue" related to the release of Shalit.

Hamas will insist on the release of prisoners who were sentenced to life in
prison. He concluded his speech by shouting "Jerusalem is ours, Gaza, Haifa,
Jaffa, all of them are ours."

Meanwhile, a member of Fatah was shot and killed early in the northern Gaza
Strip on Saturday morning, after his home came under attack by militants.

Witnesses said that gunmen attacked the house of Abdel Salam Abu Taqia, 23,
near Jabaliya refugee camp and killed him.

Hours later, Hamas announced the murderer was arrested, and claimed the
incident was motivated by family differences.

Haniyeh: Deal for Kuntar Helps Hamas's Demands



(IsraelNN.com) Hamas's Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh told supporters in Gaza City Saturday that the Olmert administration's agreement to release Arab terrorists helps Hamas's demands in negotiations for the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. The government approved freeing the terrorists, including child murderer Samir Kuntar, in return for the bodies of kidnapped IDF soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev.

Haniyeh, speaking at the Islamic University, said he sees the deal with Hizbullah should help Hamas bring about "the release our heroes from prison." He also announced that he has ordered his government to issue a diplomatic passport to Kuntar.

Hamas Children's TV Debates Which Body Part To Chop

(IsraelNN.com) A new segment of a Hamas television show features the host debating with Assud the bunny which body part to chop off as punishment for stealing. A video clip of the program, provided by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), was aired on Al Aqsa TV last week.

It begins with Satan encouraging the bunny to steal dollar bills. A girl's voice chides the bunny for listening to Satan and warns that the Koran commands to chop off one's hand for stealing.

The program's host then introduces Asmaa, who agrees that the hand of Assud the bunny should be chopped off. After the bunny appeals for mercy, the host suggests, "Well, if we don't chop off his hand, maybe we should chop off his ear?"

Samir Kuntar new hero of the Islamic world

Former IDF Chief Rabbi: Bodies' Abuse Made ID Difficult

(IsraelNN.com) As Israel buries her fallen sons, harsh questions and details are arising from the exchange which took place yesterday. According to Israeli officials, the bodies were received in a severely-damaged state which may have lengthened the confirmation of their identities. Former IDF Medical Corps and Chief Military Rabbinate officials have noted the tragic expertise Israel has gathered in years of conflict, but remained shocked by what they saw yesterday at the Rosh HaNikra border crossing.

Rabbi Yisrael Weiss, former Chief Rabbi of the IDF, who was present during the transfer of the fallen soldiers yesterday, said that "the verification process yesterday was very slow, because, if we thought the enemy was cruel to the living and the dead, we were surprised, when we opened the caskets, to discover just how cruel. And I'll leave it at that."

Former IDF Chief Medical Officer Brig. Gen. (reserve) Dr. Hezi Levi noted this morning that only extensive procedures could verify the exact series of events following the soldier's capture, including whether or not a gunshot wound Regev received to the head was caused by terrorists' "confirming the kill" of the fallen IDF soldier.

When Pigs Can Fly

Kuntar Pledges to Follow in Mughniyeh's Footsteps

(IsraelNN.com) Child murderer Samir Kuntar led the way as he and the four Hizbullah terrorists, all freed Wednesday by Israel in exchange for the bodies of IDF reservists Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, paid homage Thursday at the graveside of assassinated Hizbullah second-in-command, Imad Mughniyeh.

"We swear to G-d... to continue on your same path and not to retreat until we achieve the same stature that Allah has bestowed on you," said Kuntar. "This is our great wish. We envy you and we will achieve it, G-d willing."

Kuntar, a Druze, carried out his 1979 attack on Nahariya three years before the Shi'ite Hizbullah terror group came into existence.



I can think of no greater evidence of why Israel needs to give the death penalty to terrorist. If this scum was dead and his body handed back wrapped up in a pig carcass then it is over and done with, he is no longer a threat to the Jewish people.

But Israel it seems is only going to have such leaders when pigs can fly, it seems sad but true.

Shame and Hate.

Today Israel has filled me with two very strong emotions.

Shame and Hate.

I am ashamed of Israel today and what we have become. Israel has descended into a narcissistic society, where all that matters is me and mine. Israelis worry today about there next trip to Turkey or Thailand and getting a new car.

The sacrifice for the State and the Jewish people in many parts of the Israeli society has disappeared.

But let's be fair it was the example of our leaders that brought us here, the Knesset is rotten through and through. We have lost our way and without new leadership Israel will flounder for some time into the future until our enemies defeat us.

Our enemies have not lost sight of their vision the President and Prime Minister of Lebanon welcome Samir Kuntar back as a hero, the PA welcomes the body of Dalal Mughrabi as a hero.

I pray to G-D I am never put into the position of the Regev and Goldwasser families but I would never beg for my children if they are held by these terrorist scum.

Former Gush Katif Synagogue Now Hamas Training Base

(IsraelNN.com) What was once the synagogue of the Gaza Jewish community of Atzmona is now a Hamas training center, says a Ynet report.

The Israeli news service received several videos, filmed and produced by various terror organizations, that show gunmen training in the remains of public buildings that were once a part of Jewish Gaza. The buildings include synagogues and schools.

One of these buildings can be clearly identified as the Atzmona synagogue, in a short film which shows Hamas terrorists training on combat tactics with live ammunition. The Israeli government's decision to expell the Jewish residents of Gaza and to leave Jewish buildings intact has resulted in many of those buildings captured by PA terrorists in their continuing assault on Israeli targets. In addition to terrorist training centers, many such buildings are now used to launch the very Kassam

Hebrew Univ. to Readmit Convicted Terrorist to Chemistry Lab He Stole Bomb Making Material From

Monday, July 14, 2008

www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/126827

[For Channel 2 TV report:
www.keshet-tv.com/VideoPage.aspx?MediaID=40798&CatID=330&CurrentCatID=330 ]

(IsraelNN.com) A professor at Hebrew University wants to allow a convicted
Arab terrorist who stole bomb-making materials from his chemistry lab to be
allowed back to the lab, Channel 2 TV reported Sunday.

Six years ago, 160 liters of acetone - a chemical which is used for making
the common explosive acetone peroxide - disappeared from the Laboratory for
Medicinal Chemistry at Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The theft led to an
investigation by the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet), which in turn led to
the arrest of Adel Hadmi, a doctoral student at the laboratory.

According to Channel 2, Hadmi was convicted of being a member of a terror
cell that planned suicide attacks against Israelis. In addition, he
recruited other Arabs to the cell. He was convicted and jailed but is now
free again, and would like to complete his doctoral studies in the very same
laboratory the acetone was stolen from.

Prof. Goldblum thinks otherwise

The laboratory's previous director, Prof. Avi Domb, adamantly vetoed the
idea of Hadmi's return, but his successor, Prof. Amiram Goldblum, thinks
otherwise. Goldblum, one of the founders of radical leftist group "Peace
Now," said that the university has no grounds to refuse to readmit Hadmi and
allow him to finish his doctorate, because he has already been punished and
served his jail sentence. Last week, the lab's students were told to free a
table in the lab for Hadmi.

Domb, who was shocked to hear of Goldblum's decision, wrote a letter to the
university in which he said that allowing the convicted terrorist back to
the scene of his crime was both irresponsible and immoral. Students in the
lab also protested but as of now, the university has not rescinded the
decision to let the terrorist back in. The university did say, however, that
he will probably not be allowed near dangerous substances because of his
terrorist past.

According to watchdog group CAMERA, Prof. Goldblum was considered a radical
even by his colleagues in Peace Now "after he explained away Saddam Hussein's
Scud attacks and threats of annihilation as due only to Israel's alleged
failure to make concessions to the Palestinians." In 1990, after an Arab
stabbed and killed three Israelis in the Baka neighborhood of Jerusalem
where Goldblum lives, "even his own neighbors began to stone his house in
frustration at what they saw as his outspokenly pro-PLO views."

I can't even respond to this for fear of offending my readers.

War Is Coming

Hizbullah Ratcheting Up, Olmert Asks for UN Help
12 Tammuz 5768, 15 July 08 01:01
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz and Pinchas Sanderson

(IsraelNN.com) Arab reports indicate that Hizbullah is preparing to arm its rockets with chemical warheads and to build extensive fortifications. Defense Minister Ehud Barak blames the Syrians, while Prime Minister Ehud Olmert asks the United Nations to do something.

"[UN] Resolution 1701 is being violated. The Hizbullah continues to get stronger with the ongoing and intimate assistance of the Syrians," according to Defense Minister Barak. Speaking at a meeting of the Labor party's Knesset representatives on Monday, Barak said, "The delicate balance that exists on the northern border should not be violated on the two-year anniversary of the Second Lebanon War. We should make an explicit statement: Resolution 1701 did not work, it is not working, and all indications are that it will not work in the future. It is a failure."

Adding further weight to Defense Minister Barak's declaration is an article in the Kuwaiti daily Al-Siyasa, which reported Monday that Hizbullah has acquired chemicals needed to make weapons such as nerve gas or mustard gas from North Korean suppliers. The Lebanese terrorist organization is allegedly preparing to arm its Katyusha rockets with such chemical warheads. Echoing Barak's claims, the Kuwaiti paper also stated that the assistance of Syria and Iran has been crucial in Hizbullah's efforts to acquire chemical weapons capabilities. The Al-Siyasa report was based on intelligence provided to the Kuwaiti paper by Syrian opposition figures in the United States.

Other Arab sources also indicate Hizbullah is entrenching itself for another attack on Israel. The organization is reportedly stockpiling "truckloads" of building materials, such as steel and concrete, in order to restore and expand the terrorists' network of fortifications in southern Lebanon.

Beirut-based Dalal Steel Industries, a leading manufacturer of steel reinforced buildings, reported that it has provided Hizbullah with substantial bunker-building and other materials. The company told Arab media that it had been shipping Hizbullah orders southwards towards Israel's border. The underground bunkers used by Hizbullah, usually hidden by natural cover such as trees and foliage, were coined "nature reserves" by the IDF in the 2006 Second Lebanon War, and they proved difficult targets to find and destroy.

Eyewitness accounts allege that Hizbullah members are preventing UNIFIL forces from inspecting the trucks or preventing their movements. Reports by UNIFIL commanders have confirmed that local Hizbullah supporters have effectively prevented the force from efficiently performing its duties under UN Security Resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 Lebanon War. Among other tasks, the UNIFIL mandate is to assure a southern Lebanon "free of any armed personnel, assets and weapons other than those of the Government of Lebanon and of UNIFIL deployed in this area."

In light of the failure of UNIFIL and the ratcheting up of Hizbullah forces, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert turned to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to prevent weapons smuggling to Hizbullah units in southern Lebanon. "UNIFIL must act much more intensively," Olmert said during a meeting with Ki-Moon on Monday.

It is time to tell UNIFIL to leave Lebanon and Israel needs to hit Hizbullah in a hard decisive war that will make the Second Lebanon war seem like the joke it was.

We have no choice but to hit Hizbullah, at the same time we hit Iran and take out there nuclear program.

Time To Go For A Swim, Ahmad

Tibi: Assad boycotted Olmert, but shook my hand

Arab MK continues to anger Israeli diplomats who run into him at Paris conference: 'It is unthinkable that he walks around with the Palestinian delegation.' Tibi in response: I'm here as an independent guest
Roni Sofer

PARIS - Three months after Knesset Member Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) took part in a conference in Qatar as a Palestinian representative, he once against angered Israeli diplomats who spotted him walking around with members of the Arab delegation to the Union of the Mediterranean conference in Paris.

This time as well, Tibi was not registered at the conference as an Israeli representative. He told Ynet in response that "(Syria President Bashar) Assad boycotted (Prime Minister Ehud) Olmert, but he shook the hand of Ahmad Tibi in Paris."

Tibi's presence at the convention, which was attended by more than 40 leaders and dozens of foreign ministers, angered the Israeli leaders taking part in the event.

A senior source in the Israeli delegation said, "It is unthinkable that an Israeli Knesset member appears here and walks around with the Palestinian delegation and other Arab delegation. He should decide who he is representing."

A senior diplomatic source who ran into Tibi in the corridor said, "I have no idea who this man is serving, why he walks in and out and brings different officials to the Palestinian delegation. Is someone paying him? What is he getting in return? He is an Israeli MK working for the Palestinians. This is an awful thing in my opinion."



Let me make this very simple Tibi is a member of the Israeli Knesset and Tibi is a traitor.

He should not be arrested for his trial would be a joke and the left wing courts in Israel just might turn him loose.

He needs to be picked up and taken to an IAF helicopter which would take him 40 miles out to sea and then throw him out.

No body for the press to see and Tibi is gone, end of story period.

Olmert Is A Traitor

Olmert to Abbas: 'We Will Release More PA Terrorists for You' 10 Tammuz 5768, 13 July 08 10:21 by Ze'ev Ben-Yechiel

(IsraelNN.com) Israel will release more Palestinian Authority prisoners, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert vowed Sunday to PA President Mahmoud Abbas. The announcement came during the Paris conference of Mediterranean states, apparently as a goodwill gesture to the PA.

There was no discussion of identity and number of prisoners to be freed.
Mark Regev, a spokesman for Olmert, clarified that the prime minister "agreed in principle" to releasing terrorists as a "gesture" to Abbas.

The move came a day after the PA’s Minister for Prisoner Affairs published complaints about the PA not being included in the prisoner swap deals that Israel is currently concluding. Ashraf al-Ajami warned that the impending release by Israel of live Hizbullah terrorists in exchange for the bodies of dead IDF soldiers encourages PA Arabs to kidnap Israeli troops as well.

In a report on Israel Radio, Abbas himself claimed that Israel's release of Palestinian Authority bodies in the Hizbullah deal undermined his authority.

Speaking earlier on the Voice of Palestine radio station, P.A. negotiator Saeb Erekat said that most of the prisoners whose release Abbas is demanding were sentenced before the Oslo Accords. According to Erekat, Abbas expressed consternation at the recent IDF crackdown on Hamas-linked institutions in Judea and Samaria, and asked Olmert to reopen several institutions believed to fund Hamas operations in Shechem, including the P.A.’s only shopping mall.

Erekat said that Olmert and Abbas plan to meet again Sunday night in Paris.

Earlier Sunday, during a meeting with Abbas and French President Nicolas Sarkozy at the Paris conference, Olmert proclaimed that Israel and the P.A. have "never been as close" to a peace deal than now.

Olmert added the time is approaching for the Israelis and P.A. Arabs to make critical decisions, assuring Abbas that while he hopes to initiate direct talks with Syria “soon”, an Israel-P.A. peace accord is at the top of his agenda.

Olmert is a traitor to the Jewish people and Israel!

Just when you think he can't sink any lower he grovels beofre Abbas, not wanting to offend this terrorist,
Olmert will race to release terrorist.

If these terrorist have been in prison since before the crime of Oslo peace process started then make no mistake they are really bad people.

This is why Israel needs the death sentence for terrorist.

Two Israelis were hurt in a shooting attack near the Lions' Gate in Jerusalem's Old City Friday night. At least one of them sustained serious wounds in the incident.


Around midnight, several shots were fired at a group of Israelis standing in the area. Large police forces and paramedics were promptly dispatched to the scene. Police officers were scouring the area for the shooter.


The two shooting victims were taken to hospital in Jerusalem. Shortly thereafter, Police sealed off roads around the attack site and called in a helicopter to assist them in the manhunt for the attacker.


An initial examination of the scene revealed that the two victims used their own weapons to fire back at their attacker. At this time, it is unclear whether the shooter was hurt. Police officers are searching for him inside the cemetery.

True Face

Friday, July 11, 2008 "Moderate" PA wants 'festive' funeral for coastal road killer

PA wants 'festive' funeral for coastal road killer
Jul. 10, 2008 Khaled Abu Toameh , THE JERUSALEM POST
www.jpost.com
/servlet/Satellite?cid=1215330933597&pagename=JPost%2FJPArticle%2FShowFull

The Palestinian Authority has asked Israel to hand over the remains of Dalal
Mughrabi, the Palestinian woman who led the March 11, 1978 coastal road
attack in which 36 people were murdered and 71 wounded.

Israel is planning to deliver Mughrabi's remains, together with those of
scores of Palestinians and Lebanese, to Hizbullah in the context of the new
prisoner exchange between the two sides.

The PA said in its request that it wanted to "honor" Mughrabi by holding a
big funeral for her in Ramallah.

Azzam al-Ahmed, a senior Fatah official closely associated with PA President
Mahmoud Abbas, described Mughrabi, whose family originally came from Jaffa,
as a "the first Palestinian woman to carry out one of the most courageous
operations in Israel." He claimed that in her will, Mughrabi, who belonged
to Fatah, had asked her family to see to it that she was buried in
"Palestine."

"We want to turn Dalal's funeral into a national wedding, a major
celebration," the Fatah official said. "The operation she carried out off
the shores of her hometown of Jaffa was heroic and exemplary. She will
always be remembered as a symbol for the Palestinian women's struggle."

Even if Israel refuses to deliver her remains to the PA in Ramallah, Fatah
officials said they were planning to hold big celebrations throughout the
West Bank to coincide with her funeral in Lebanon.

Ahmed also praised Lebanese prisoner Samir Kuntar for carrying out another
terror attack in Israel one year after the 1978 carnage. He described Kuntar
as a "stubborn and firm fighter in the ranks of the Lebanese resistance who
led a very courageous operation."

Since its inception, the PA has honored Mughrabi by naming many schools and
various institutions after her.

An article published in Thursday's edition of the PA-funded Al-Hayat
Al-Jadedda newspaper hailed Mughrabi as a "living legend and a wonderful
example for all women."

The article criticized Hizbullah for agreeing to bury Mughrabi in Lebanon
and not in the Palestinian territories. It said that someone like her
deserved to be buried next to Yasser Arafat's grave in Ramallah.



This is the true face of the Palestinian people.

They have evolved into one of the most warped evil societies on the face of the earth and the world wants them to be rewarded with a State.

I often wonder how the world can be so blind to the evil of a society that supports suicide bombing of civilians and calls for the destruction of a State and 6,000,000 Jews. Or for that matter how the world can fail to act against Iran, and it's threats against Israel.

But now I think I have answered my own question the world is blind because the victims that have fallen and that are the intended future victims are Jews.

I do not wear being a Jew on my sleeve and I have never thought that all the Goyim are out to get us, as a matter of fact I know I have friends that would fight to save me if it ever G-D forbid came down to it in the USA and they would go today and fight for Israel if needed.

So then why does every American President since 1991 seem hell bent on rewarding this cult of murder of suicide, I really don't know, for the majority of the American people are with us.

Now if Israel had some real leaders we would give the bodies of the terrorist back stuffed into the body of a pig including Samir Kuntar.

Mickey Levy At Work

http://youtube.com/watch?v=Iclx7gNJ738


Here is a UTube video of Mickey at work. He doesn't want to kill terrorist but he had no problem killing freedom, liberty and the rights of assembly and speech in Israel for the sake of "peace".

Show me a man that will give any degree of protection to terrorist, and you will find an immoral person behind those actions of protection.

Protect Freedom, Liberty and Justice along with the lives of innocent civilians and you will find a moral person.

Confirming The Kill Is Moral

Confirming kill immoral

Once neutralized, terrorists should not be shot by police to confirm kill
Mickey Levy

All of us were educated in the Israel Defense Forces to adhere to the code of the purity of arms, part of which means using our weapons in a moral way. The moment a decision is taken and a bullet is shot, the goal is to hit and neutralize enemy actions. The moment we fired, and the enemy or terrorist was hit, and we are under the impression that he was neutralized, there is no room to shoot again – even if this is the most terrible and despicable terrorist. We shall never shoot him in cold blood. Only if the danger has not been lifted, neutralization means confirming the kill.


The situation where a terrorist driving a bulldozer went on a rampage through one of Jerusalem’s streets was faced by a police officer, a 22-year-old woman, who immediately realized this was a terror act. She then decided to shoot the rampaging bulldozer driver while he was speeding.


With all due respect to the brave soldier who showed great courage at the end of the incident, and I certainly take my hat off to him, his act was the easy part of the incident. The difficult part was performed by police office Revital Nahum, who took the difficult decision to shoot the driver.


We are a moral people

In my view, Nahum is the true hero; she faced the most difficult situation when she fired two bullets, hit the terrorist, and in fact stopped the incident. The police officer’s partner who hopped into the driver’s seat saw that the driver was unconscious and therefore put down his gun and didn’t shoot him. This is precisely the stage where a police officer should not be firing in cold blood, even if we are dealing with a despicable terrorist.


Regrettably, a civilian who hurled a stone at the terrorist aroused him. At that point, the terrorist started struggling with the police officer, and to my regret was able to hurt and kill another woman, but the policeman could not have acted any other way. Had he shot the terrorist while he was unconscious, this could have been perceived as an immoral act. Yet we are a moral people, and in our Book of Books it says “thou shalt not murder.”


I do not precisely conform to the definition of a “good boy.” The proof of this is the order I issued, as Jerusalem police chief, to shoot a handcuffed terrorist wearing an explosive belt in March 2002. Although the terrorist was nabbed and his arms were handcuffed, he continued to struggle wildly and there was real danger that the explosive device will go off. Therefore, I gave the order to put a gun to his head and shoot him.


Yet that situation was not the same as the situation where the police officer decided not to shoot the terrorist when he was initially neutralized. The term “confirm kill” is immoral, and it has no legal basis.


Mickey Levy is the former Jerusalem District police chief



Mickey Levy is just plain wrong and the facts of the bulldozer case proves he is wrong.

As he points out himself the terrorist was able to come to and continue his rampage which cost a woman her life and a family untold heart ache and pain for years to come.

The terrorist sitting slumped in the drivers seat that was only wounded had the same potential to murder innocent people as the handcuffed terrorist that Mickey ordered to be shot, the proof is that he did in fact murder again.

Now if police officer Revital Nahum had run over and put a bunch of rounds into the terrorist head then she would have been a true hero.

The facts speak for themselves she failed in her duty to protect the civilians of Jerusalem.

Shooting a terrorist in a confirmed kill is not murder it is necessary and it is moral, we are not talking about shooting a criminal in the head. A criminal even one who is wanted for murder if he has been shot and is down the threat in most cases is over and they can be taken into custody.

A terrorist especialy a Muslim terrorist is bent on murdering as many people as they can and will be a threat until the security forces have removed them from the realm of the living.

Lastly if Mickey wants to bring in an argument from Judaism he must not pick and choose what he likes and doesn't like.

The Torah commands us not to committee murder, but we are also commanded to kill someone who is on their way to committee murder we as Jews are commanded to do the right thing.

The right thing is to get up and set and ambush and to eliminate the potential murderer on their way to doing the act

The lives we must protect are innocent lives and not those of the terrorist.

My Hopes Are Not High

Senior Kadima officials: Olmert won't run in primaries

Several hours after Kadima leadership candidates agree on mid-September primaries, senior party officials estimate that Prime Minister Olmert will not compete; PM has not yet officially announced whether he intends to run
Attila Somfalvi

End of the road for Olmert? Prime Minister Ehud Olmert will not be running in the Kadima leadership primaries, a senior party official estimated late Wednesday.

According to sources in the party, including some who are closely associated with the prime minister, in the coming weeks Olmert will attempt to come up with a way to quit his post in a dignified manner and possibly retire from politics altogether.

Earlier Wednesday, agreement was reached on holding the Kadima primaries in September. Top Kadima officials said that the uncertainty conveyed by Olmert regarding his intention to run in the primaries stems from his desire to leave his post in a dignified manner.

Kadima agrees on mid-September primaries

According to the agreement reached Wednesday, the Kadima primaries will be held between September 14-18, and the candidate who wins the vote will be the party's premiership candidate in the next general elections. This arrangement was formulated by MK Tzachi Hanegbi, who heads Kadima's party affairs committee, in conjunction with the party's leadership candidates.



Can we even hope, that the worse Prime Minister will go into the pages of history by the fall.

We all thought he would be forced out in July and that is not going to happen so I refuse to get my hopes up.

IDF troops kill Hamas terrorist in arrest operation near Jenin

The Jerusalem Post Internet Edition

Jul. 9, 2008
Jonny Hadi and AP , THE JERUSALEM POST

A Hamas terrorist was killed on Wednesday night during a joint IDF-Border Police-Shin Bet arrest operation in the village of Kufr Dan, near Jenin.

The man, Talal Saed Talal Abed, was shot in the neck when he tried to evade arrest, the army said.

Soldiers attempted to treat him at the scene, but he died on the way to Afula's Haemek Hospital.

Abed was part of a Hamas terror cell in Kufr Dan that attempted to dispatch a suicide bomber to Israel, said the IDF.

Elsewhere in the West Bank, an Israeli bus was damaged by stones thrown by Palestinians south of Hebron. No one was wounded.

Meanwhile, Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad warned that IDF operations in the West Bank were hampering his administration's effort to improve security in the territory.

Earlier in the day, IDF troops raided the city hall of the West Bank city of Nablus, confiscating five computers in what appeared to be part of an ongoing crackdown on institutions Israel thinks are linked to Hamas. This week, troops have raided and shut down various Nablus facilities with links to Hamas.

The operations "undermine grossly our efforts aimed at rebuilding our capacity and re-establishing law and order," Fayad told a news conference in the West Bank city of Ramallah with Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini.

'Hizbullah rearming at dizzying pace'

The Jerusalem Post Internet Edition

Jul. 9, 2008
Herb Keinon , THE JERUSALEM POST

There are some 2,500 un-uniformed Hizbullah fighters in southern Lebanon, and the organization has trebled its pre-war missile arsenal, government sources said Wednesday, following a security cabinet meeting on Hizbullah's strength and the implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1701.

According to the sources, Hizbullah today has some 40,000 short- and medium-range missiles inside Lebanon, and UN Security Council Resolution 1701 - the resolution that put an end to the Second Lebanon War and provided an expanded mandate for UNIFIL - has been completely ineffective in stopping arms from pouring into Hizbullah from Syria.

The vast majority of the missiles are north of the Litani River, but can still "blanket" the northern part of Israel, the sources said.

The security cabinet meeting came as the government is apparently trying to put the implementation of 1701 back on the international agenda.

The ministers heard three hours of briefings from Military Intelligence, Mossad and General Security Services representatives, before the meeting was cut short to enable the ministers to attend debates in the Knesset. The security cabinet discussion, which has been planned for a number of weeks, is scheduled to continue in the coming weeks.

Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni raised the failure to implement 1701 on Tuesday with
visiting Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini, whose country currently commands the
UNIFIL forces.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak also joined the fray, and called French Foreign Minster Bernard Kouchner Tuesday night to discus the matter. He said he plans to discuss the matter with other European foreign ministers before the upcoming Mediterranean Union meeting in Paris on Sunday, where Syrian President Bashar Assad, as well as the new Lebanese President Michel Suleiman, is scheduled to attend.

Barak, according to a statement released by his office, told Kouchner that "Israel will
not be able to accept the ongoing and growing undercutting of UN Security Council
Resolution 1701 which is not being implemented, and the continued smuggling of all types of weapons into Lebanon, upsetting the delicate balance along Israel's northern border."

Barak told Kouchner that Israel expected him to act to halt the transfer of arms from Syria to Hizbullah, adding that the UNIFIL force operating in Lebanon must increase its efforts against Hizbullah's growing armament and fortification.

Israeli diplomatic sources, however, said they doubted French President Nicolas Sarkozy
would put much pressure on Assad on this matter at their scheduled meeting in Paris on
Saturday because Europe is presently "hugging Assad, not scolding him."

The sources denied, however, that the Israeli government's sudden public surge of
attention on 1701 had to do with Saturday's second anniversary of the Second Lebanon War and an interest in showing activity on the issue amid what is expected to be a wave of media reports over the weekend looking at the situation in Lebanon two years after the
war.

"There is a serious objective problem," one official said. "The problem is real."

Meanwhile, CIA Director Michael Hayden said in an interview with Bloomberg that Hizbullah may not be willing to attack American interests and provoke a global fight in retaliation for a US or Israeli strike aimed at disabling Iranian nuclear facilities.

If Iran were attacked and pressured Hizbullah to retaliate, the group may be especially reluctant to disrupt international oil supplies for fear of triggering a backlash, Hayden said.

A strike at oil would be ``the terrorists' equivalent of the nuclear weapon'' and also would hit many other nations besides the US, said Hayden, 63, a retired Air Force General.

Hayden said Hizbullah would need to weigh whether any action it took against the US would involve it in a war. ``Is it in Hizbullah's interest to become involved in a global war against the United States of America? That's a question to be answered.''

However, Hayden said, Hizbullah may be less reluctant to strike at Israeli targets. The costs of an attack on US interests, he said, ``are different than Hizbullah operating against Israel.''

Carrot- Stick For Israeli Arabs

The Jerusalem Post Internet Edition

Police: We exposed Israeli al-Qaida cell
Jul. 9, 2008
YAAKOV LAPPIN and YAAKOV KATZ , THE JERUSALEM POST

Two Israeli Beduin from the Negev town of Rahat were charged Wednesday with plotting terrorist outrages over the internet with al-Qaida members overseas and marking out civilian and military sites in Israel for attack.

The suspects were named by police as Taher Abu Sakut, 21, and Omar Abu Sakut, 22. They were arrested in late May and early June in a joint Israel Police-Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) operation.

An indictment was filed against them on Wednesday in the Beersheba District Court, accusing them of membership in a terror organization, aiding the enemy during a time of war and transferring information to the enemy with intent to harm national security.

Both suspects confessed during their interrogations to the charges.

"These are not Palestinians from the West Bank or Gaza - they're Israeli residents, and we view this episode with extreme severity," F.-Sgt Moti Azor, Head of the Hostile Enemy Activities Unit in Lahish, of the Southern Police District, said. "They're Israelis who were raised in this country.

They really crossed the line and made contact with the worst of our enemies in order to attack us," he added.

"Taher was the first to go online to al-Qaida sites after becoming indoctrinated through the Islamic Movement. He was asked by al-Qaida members for targets in Israel to attack, and responded by sending information on Ben Gurion Airport, the Ashkelon power plant, the Be'er Sheva central bus station, and targets in Eilat," Azor said

"He provided information on where terrorists can enter Israel via the West Bank, and where they could hide out in the desert after an attack. At a certain stage in the communication, Omar asked to be put in touch with fighters in Iraq and Saudi Arabia. He was plotting attacks that could harm his own family," Azor added.

"He then told his cousin, Omar, to join the website, giving him a username and password. They visited 10 Islamist sites, all from their home in Rahat. The suspects used an array of programs aimed at hiding their internet activities and erasing their tracks."

Azor said Taher's father was arrested and then released on bail in connection with the investigation.

"This not about a few kids surfing the internet. They had intent to cause harm, and they admit to doing it out of ideological motivations. This was done with malicious intention. In court, the suspects, who are now anxious, showed some regret, saying they should have stopped themselves. But this regret is insincere - they don't regret it. We have exposed an al-Qaida cell in Israel," Azor said.

Police and the Shin Bet would continue to hunt for jihadi cells in Israel, Azor vowed, adding that he hoped the recent arrest would deter Israeli Arab youths from visiting al-Qaida-affiliated sites.

This is not the first time that Israeli-Arabs have been charged with maintaining contacts with al Qaida.

In December, two Israeli Arabs from the city of Jaljuliya in northern Israel were arrested for allegedly planning al-Qaida inspired terror attacks against Israeli targets.

The suspects told their interrogators that they was influenced by al-Qaida philosophy and used to spend hours surfing Global Jihad websites and listening to speeches of radical Islamic preachers.



Israel must resort to the carrot or the stick with Israeli Arabs.

The carrot must be better education and a demand for national service just as Jewish Orthodox girls now serve.

The stick must be big and brutal, we must force the Israeli Arabs to take a side once and for all.

Good Money, After Bad

Tuesday, July 8, 2008 Nearly billion dollars in direct aid disbursed to Palestinians in six months

Nearly billion dollars in direct aid disbursed to Palestinians in six months
www.reliefweb.int:80/rw/rwb.nsf/db900SID/KHII-7GC5JW?OpenDocument

PARIS, July 8, 2008 (AFP) - The international community has paid out nearly
a billion dollars in direct aid to the Palestinians in six months, officials
of the International Donors' Conference for the Palestinian State said here
late Monday, while hitting out at Israeli restrictions on movement by
Palestinians.

The chair and the co-chairs of the Paris conference, which last December
came up with pledges of donations totalling 7.7 billion dollars over three
years, 'strongly welcomed' the process of disbursing the funds.

The international community has paid out more than 920 million dollars in
six months in direct budgetary support and signed for one billion dollars of
bilateral agreements with the Palestinian Authority for development
projects, according to a communique from the chair and co-chairs released by
the French foreign ministry.

'This unprecedented level and rapid disbursement of contributions
demonstrates the strong support of the international community to the
Palestinian government,' said the statement by Quartet special Middle East
envoy Tony Blair, European External Relations Commissioner Benita
Ferrero-Waldner and a Norwegian representative who met at the French foreign
ministry.

'The priority over the coming months will be to secure contributions of Arab
League members. These will be crucial to finance the budgetary gap and to
support the Palestinian institutions,' it went on.

The chair and co-chairs said it was 'essential that the Palestinian
government maintains a rigorous fiscal policy in relation with the future
disposable revenues and contributions.'

But 'restrictions by the Government of Israel on Palestinian movement and
access continue to weigh heavily on the economic outlook.

'Without a significant lifting of such barriers in the West Bank, and a
relaxation of the restrictions on humanitarian and commercial flows to the
Gaza Strip, there is a much-reduced prospect for private sector recovery,
public and private investment programmes will continue to be delayed, and
consequently any economic recovery will continue to be inhibited.'

The Paris conference was aimed at boosting still fragile hopes for peace
launched at the latest Palestinian-Israeli peace process in Annapolis,
Maryland in late November 2007, aimed at working for a Palestinian state by
the end of 2008.

Gazan Arabs Seek Compensation for Dismissal From Gush Katif Jobs


6 Tammuz 5768, 09 July 08 01:49
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz

(IsraelNN.com) Gazan Arabs who were employed by Israeli farmers in Gush Katif until the 2005 eviction of Jews from the region are seeking ways to sue their former employers for "wrongful dismissal" and other employee benefits.

The uprooting of the vibrant Jewish communities and economy of Gush Katif during the Sharon Administration's "disengagement" from Gaza led to the instant unemployment of about 10,000 people who worked in agriculture and related industries, including 5,000 Arabs from the Palestinian Authority. As of June 2008, over 50 percent of former Gush Katif residents still find themselves unemployed. %ad%

According to an Israel TV Channel One report, the SELA Administration, which was set up to assist Disengagement evictees to rebuild their lives and communities, told former Gush Katif residents, employers and businessmen that the Arab claims are "your problem."

The government has claimed that compensation funds paid to former Gush Katif residents included a fund to be used for former employees of the Jewish industries kicked out of Gaza. However, compensation payments thus far have not covered the basic needs of the evictees themselves, Gush Katif activists say.

Yossi Schwartz, a former owner of a clothing factory interviewed for the Channel One report, said that former workers' claims could be more than one million NIS in his case alone. Mr. Schwartz, like so many of his former neighbors, is still unemployed.



Just when you thought the Israeli government could do no more harm to these fine people, that were by force thrown from their homes and businesses in Gaza.

Jews were told, we were the problem in Gaza, so we left and the rockets and mortars followed, now this.

Obscene.

What of the millions of dollars spent by stupid American Jews, that wanted to help the poor Palestinians of Gaza and bought up hundreds of hot houses from the Jewish owners. The Arabs tore them to pieces and what they didn't vandalize they burned.

Now the fact that the Arabs in their orgy of hate of Jews want to sue these fine people, makes me sick.

If Israel was a normal country, the Palestinians would have ZERO standing in Israeli courts.

SENIOR ISRAELI POLICE OFFICER ADMITS TO ORDERING VIOLENT REMOVAL OF


Sunday, July 6, 2008

www.israeljustice.com/news2.asp?key=133
Date added: 7/6/2008

JERUSALEM -- A senior Israeli police officer has admitted that he ordered
police to forcibly remove a parliamentarian, involved in passive civil
disobedience, from an anti-government protest, causing him serious injury.

"I would allow zero time for dialogue [with them]," Brig.-Gen. Meir
Bukovza, deputy commander of the Judea and Samaria police district, said. "I
gave the order to forcibly get rid of them."

Bukovza told Jerusalem Magistrate Arnon Darel on July 6 that he ordered
security forces to immediately get rid of Knesset members Aryeh Eldad, Benny
Elon and Effy Eitam, who were standing several meters away from a bulldozer
set to destroy one of nine homes in the West Bank Jewish community of Amona
on Feb. 1, 2006. The Knesset members, who said they were involved in passive
civil disobedience, also had parliamentary immunity from violating a
military order that prevented people from being in the area.

"I didn't recognize the Knesset member [Aryeh Eldad]," Bukovza said.
"Even today I don't know the Knesset members."

Bukovza said that the police, based on intelligence reports, conducted a
three-day training exercise before the Amona evacuation, fearing violent
resistance by Jewish protesters. Police officers testified that they were
treated to a magic show and a field trip during the training but were not
familiarized with Knesset members expected to be in Amona to assuage the
protesters.

"We thought there would be Knesset members and there was training that
began several days earlier," Bukovza said. "They trained and then had some
fun."

During the violent evacuation and demolition of the homes, at least 250
demonstrators were injured, including Eitam who was struck in the head and
Eldad, whose hand was crushed by police officer Ibrahim Rachal. The ligament
joining the thumb to the palm of his hand was torn and Eldad, formerly the
chief plastic surgeon at Jeruslem's Hadassah Hospital, is no longer able to
operate.

"The police had told us that our job was to be involved and to prevent
[violent] confrontation as we had done in the expulsion [from the Gaza Strip
and nothern West Bank in August 2005]," Eldad said.

Eldad said that the Knesset members had placed themselves between the
police and the demonstrators to try and calm the atmosphere and engage in a
dialogue with the security forces.

"The aim was protest. The location was between the police and
demonstrators to prevent violence," Eldad said. "I believed that the natural
act was to come and speak with us. [Instead] they [police] pushed us towards
the bulldozer."

Video footage presented at the hearing showed Eldad and Elon being
pushed by nine police officers towards the bulldozer which was ready to
demolish the first house. At least 500 more police officers stood in two
columns on either side of the Knesset members.

"They broke the law when they tried to interfere with the work of the
bulldozer," Bukovza said.

As soon as Eldad and Elon grasped onto the bulldozer, Bukovza shouted an
order from an adjoining hilltop to get rid of them.

"I got an order to evacuate them immediately," former police office
Ibrahim Rachal said. "I didn't know they were Knesset members."

Four police officers jumped on Eldad and it took seven seconds to peel
his hands from the bulldozer. Rachal admitted that he grasped Eldad's right
hand and footage showed him pushing Eldad's thumb back until the connecting
ligament snapped. Eldad fainted and was carried off upside down by the
officers.

Police officers, including Bukovza and Police Commander Shmuel Rosenthal
who grabbed Eldad from behind during the evacuation, failed to explain why
Eldad was not evacuated according to the police guidelines. [Four officers
each hold a limb and carry the person away].

"I would not have resisted," Eldad said. "I would have been evacuated
peacefully."

Despite the heavy casualties, Bukovza said that the police had not used
undue force in Amona but had reacted to the violence of the protesters.

"We were in a life threatening situation," Rosenthal testified. "I was
hit in the head with a brick and then in the testicles but I would not leave
my troops."

Still, video footage of the incident did not show any objects being
thrown at Rosenthal or Rachal. Instead, Rosenthal applied more force to
remove Eldad, a slight man, whom he characterized as "very strong."

"Why didn't you take another 50 policemen and remove them?" the judge
asked. "You should have prevented this situation."

Eldad was forced to bring a civil suit against the police officers after
the police unit dealing with complaints against officers twice refused to
investigate the charges or open a criminal case.

"Large claims [for damages] will deter police violence," Eldad, who now
suffers from 10 percent disability in his hand, said.

Police rebuff critics on terror attack

The Jerusalem Post Internet Edition


Jul. 7, 2008
JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST

The Jerusalem Police rejected criticisms on Monday that its officers failed to properly deal with Husam Taysir Dwayat, the east Jerusalem Palestinian who went on a bulldozer rampage through the capital last Wednesday, killing three people.

Some of the fiercest criticisms of police conduct during the incident were heard during a Knesset Internal Affairs Committee meeting, during which Avraham Kol Tuv, a relative of Batsheva Unterman, who was killed in the attack, said officers had become paralyzed out of fear that legal action would be taken against them for unlawfully opening fire on terrorists.

Hesitant officers "judging every step" to avoid being tried ended up costing Unterman her life, Kol Tuv charged.

But that assessment was flatly rejected by the Jerusalem Police, who said they were "very satisfied" with how officers had responded.

"Our hearts are with the victims' families," a police spokesman said.

"[But] when the officer mounted the bulldozer, he found that the driver had no pulse. If a rock had not been thrown into the tractor by a haredi civilian, the driver would not have woken up," he added.

During the incident, policewoman Elinor Nahum, had fired a number of shots at the driver, hitting him on the side of the head. The terrorist lost consciousness and the policewoman's partner, Shadi Daoud ,boarded the vehicle. At this point, the unwelcome intervention of a bystander, in the form of a rock thrown into the vehicle, jolted Dwayat back into consciousness.

"The driver was lying down and bleeding. We don't do 'confirm kills,'" the spokesman said, referring to the practice of firing rounds into a wounded target in order to ensure that the threat is neutralized.

"What woke him up was the rock. We unequivocally deny that officers were frightened to take action," the spokesman said.

After waking up, Dwayat hit the gas, running over another vehicle and killing a third victim.

The police's stance was backed by former Jerusalem Police chief Cmdr. (ret.) Mickey Levy, who was called upon by the Knesset committee to review the event.

"The tractor started going wild and a policewoman, just 22 years old, a girl, sees the situation, and recognizes that a terrorist attack is unfolding. She kneels and from 20 meters away, fires two shots, hitting the driver. In my eyes, this girl is the real hero," Levy said.

"I salute her partner, who climbed into the cabin, and saw the driver lying face down, bleeding. In effect, the danger had been neutralized.

"He put his gun back in his holster. If he had fired on an unconscious person, the decision would have been immoral. It would have had no legal grounding. That is not how we've been educated. We don't fire on the helpless," he said.

Levy said that "confirm killings" were not part of the police vocabulary. The police are Jews, he continued, stressing that there was one outstanding commandment in the Torah: Do not kill. "We don't shoot people in cold blood," he added.

The former police chief testified that while police commander, he had ordered officers to fire on handcuffed terrorists who had a suicide bomb vest strapped around them - but those terrorists had still posed a threat. Wednesday's attacker, on the other hand, had been unconscious and therefore posed no threat, he explained. "We must be moral, and not lose our humanity and be like our enemies," he added.

Levy told the committee that he had been "very critical of the police during the Merkaz Harav terror attack - then, the officer failed to strive to engage the gunman. I said then, his place is not with us."

That reasoning did not satisfy MK Marina Solodkin (Kadima), who also attended the meeting, and spoke out against the police's handling of the attack.

"These are all excuses," she said. "The result is the same - the terrorist was not properly taken out, and once again, armed civilians had to intervene, like in the Merkaz Harav attack. Again, police hesitated to open fire, and when they did shoot, they didn't neutralize the terrorist," Solodkin said.

"There isn't enough professionalism - something went wrong if outside intervention was needed to end the attack," she said, referring to the off-duty IDF soldier who opened fire on Dwayat after he woke up and hit the gas on the tractor.

"Democracy needs to know how to defend itself. I am not satisfied with the police. They are very slow to protect civilians," Solodkin added.

Hamas prisoners call on escalating the resistance in the West Bank
5 July 2008 Website of Ezzedeen Al-Qassam Brigades - the armed branch of
the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas).

www.alqassam.ps/english/?action=showdetail&fid=1077

Hamas prisoners sent congratulations to the family of the martyr of
bulldozer operation which took place in the occupied Jerusalem ," Hossam
Dwaiyat", the person who carried out the bulldozer operation in Jerusalem
last Wednesday.

The prisoners of Hamas saluted the martyr Dwaiyat, they welcomed the heroic
operation carried out by him and which led to the death of three Zionist
settlers and wounding 45 as the recognition of the occupation.

In a letter leaked on July 4th,2008 from the prisons, Hamas prisoners said,
"The operation carries a very important meanings to be read carefully by
everyone, as the resistance work to be continued and continuous whatever the
limitations and precautionary measures, the resistance against the
occupation is not exclusive to a part of people, but it is rather the right
of the Palestinian people."

They pointed out that every means is possible to be used by the Palestinian
resistance in order to hurt the Zionist enemy . They called on the
resistance in the West Bank to escalate the jihadist work and to raise the
pace of resistance against the occupation.

Hamas prisoners summed up by saying, "The well-studied resistance based on
the willingness of steadfastness and patience , it can alone impose the
demands of the Palestinians against the occupation, it can alone end
injustice siege on our people as happens in the Gaza Strip; whereas, the
negotiation processes have proved its fiasco.

Addameer: bulldozer incident investigation needs international supervision


Date: 05 / 07 / 2008 Time: 14:30
www.maannews.net/en/index.php?opr=ShowDetails&ID=30335

Gaza - Ma'an - Addameer (Conscience) Prisoners' Support and Human Rights
Association, a Palestinian non-governmental organization dedicated to
promoting and protecting the rights of political prisoners and detainees
released a statement on Saturday condemning "execution" of Jerusalem
bulldozer attacker Husam Dwayyat.

The statement described the execution as "violation of the right to life. "

The statement also slammed the Israeli Knesset's decision to demolish the
man's home, describing the action as "racial behavior and collective
punishment against Palestinian residents of Jerusalem."

The association demanded in its statement that investigations be held under
international supervision since there are some indications that the incident
was in fact a road accident with nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian
conflict.

In Addameer's statement, they suggest that the attacker may simply have lost
control of his bulldozer.

Addameer called on the international community to intervene in order to halt
the process - already in motion - to destroy the home of the Dwayyat family.

Gag order about soldier hero in bulldozer attack was at his request

Sunday, July 6, 2008


...
One of the first phone calls made by the soldier in the Egoz unit who
ultimately killed Duwiyat - after he was wounded by a policewoman - was to
the soldier's brother-in-law, David Shapira - the army officer that killed
the terrorist who infiltrated Merkaz Harav. Shapira, now an officer in the
Paratroops Brigade, was in the midst of an exercise in the Golan Heights
this week. At the same time, an initial report about the attack in Jerusalem
was passed along the chain of command, from Egoz to the Golani Brigade and
onward. "That's the Egoz mentality," said one senior officer. "They're
taught to be that way from their first week of basic training." And it was,
in fact, such a soldier, who had just completed his basic training and was
on his first regular furlough, who knew how to establish contact, storm the
terrorist and finally end the rampage, although a large number of older
police officers were also around.

Shapira had one piece of advice for his brother-in-law: "Stay away from
reporters." The Egoz soldier followed these orders. He wrote a brief
description of the event, read it into the Israel Defense Forces
spokesperson's tape recorder, and avoided any further contact (which didn't
stop some media outlets from presenting his comments as if made in an
interview). Later, just to be certain, the soldier requested a gag order be
put on his name and his photo, although they had already appeared
extensively in Israel and abroad following the attack.

Former GSS Head: Israel’s Deterrence is Weak



(IsraelNN.com) Yaakov Perry, former head of Israel’s General Security Service, said in a special interview with Israel National News today that Israel must be “more adamant in our response measures” to terrorist attacks like Wednesday’s. He noted that Israel’s deterrence against similar attacks is currently weak.

Perry also joined the list of current and former officials calling for the demolition of the terrorist’s home, stating that house demolition is an effective deterrent. Similar proposals have been voiced by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, several other government ministers and other officials.



Let's tell the truth here Yaakov when you were the head of the "Shin Bet" you pushed the peace process and you are anti settlement in Judea and Samaria.

So guess what.

You are a part of the problem that has brought Israel to the point of such weakness, and I pray one day when a true Jewish government rules Israel their will be an investigation into your activities under the peace crime trials mentioned in a prior post.

Rocket Attack Breaks Truce Sixth Time in Two Weeks


30 Sivan 5768, 03 July 08 11:11
by Tzv Ben Gedalyahu

(IsraelNN.com) Gaza-based Arab terrorists attacked the Sderot with another Kassam rocket early Thursday evening, the sixth day rocket and mortar shell explosions have broken the temporary truce since it went into effect two weeks ago. The rocket exploded in an open field near the town and caused no damage or injuries.

None of the terrorist organizations has taken responsibility for the latest attack. The government immediately responded by announcing a Friday closure of the Gaza crossings, which were re-opened earlier this week after two days of quiet. More than 70 trucks of humanitarian aid were shipped into Gaza on Thursday before the latest Kassam strike.

Fatah-aligned groups have taken responsibility for at least two of the attacks the past week, and Hamas claimed that the rival terrorist organization is tying to undermine the agreement.

Israel has held Hamas responsible for all terrorist activities originating in the Gaza region. Under the ceasefire agreement, Israel promised not to stage any counterterrorist operations.

However, Hamas has warned that closing the Gaza crossings is a breach of the temporary truce, which is to be extended to Judea and Samaria in four to six months if the ceasefire in Gaza holds up. Islamic Jihad terrorists have unilaterally extended the agreement to Judea and Samaria and threatened to retaliate if the IDF stages counterterrorist operations there.



Killer Of Terrorist Was Beaten Unconscious By Police At Anti-Disengagement Protest

Killer Of Terrorist Was Beaten Unconscious By Police At Anti-Disengagement
Protest
Dr. Aaron Lerner Date: 3 July, 2008

Makor Rishon correspondent Hodaya Karish-Hazony, reports today that "Mem",
the soldier who killed the terrorist yesterday in Jerusalem, had been
severely beaten by police during an anti-disengagement protest that took
place May 2005.

"Mem", who at the time was 17, was beaten unconscious by police as he
photographed - from the sidewalk - a protest in Ramat Gan during which the
road was blocked.

Karish-Hazony suggests that police decided to beat him unconscious even
though he was standing on the sidewalk and not involved in blocking the road
in an attempt to stop him from documenting the event.

"Mem" was detained and released several days later and his file was closed
for "lack of evidence" - a move that left a police record that made it
necessary for him to have to fight the IDF in order to be drafted into an
elite unit.

Yediot Ahronot reports that it took "Mem" two years of arguing with the IDF
before he was ultimately drafted into an elite unit.



A true hero of Israel in more than one way.

More than likely the scum in uniform that beat him 3 years ago were from Yassam, the thugs put into civilian police uniforms to put down the right of the people to protest the government.

Yassam was created at the hight of Oslo and they are true self hating Jews that have used extreme physical force against such hardened criminals such as the hero of yesterday when he was 17 years old and many a grandmother and father have been beaten by these thugs or the other hero's of the government the horse unit of the civilian police.

One day these thugs will be brought to justice under a new law that a true government "of the people, for the people and by the people" will bring forth in the peace crime trials and crimes against the Jewish people. When these crimes become law they will be retroactive and will have no statute of limitations.

Israeli Arabs in Jerusalem have been throwing stones to protest the killing of todays terrorist.

If we had a real leader he would force them to choose what side they are on and to live with that decision.

Today they take money from Israel the Jewish state and cheer when one of their own becomes a terrorist and protest when we kill the terrorist to stop his murdering rampage.

Terrorist Bulldozer Rampages in Jerusalem, Murders Three


29 Sivan 5768, 02 July 08 05:36
by Hillel Fendel

(IsraelNN.com) An Arab terrorist from eastern Jerusalem sped with a bulldozer down Jerusalem's busiest street just before noon Wednesday, ramming buses and crushing cars. At least three people were murdered in the unprecedented attack.

Two policemen caught up with the tractor and climbed inside, after a policewoman shot the driver but did not kill him. They first struggled with the terrorist-driver, and the driver stopped - but then abruptly started up again, until he was shot and killed, putting an end to the murderous spree.

Some 45 injuries have been reported, including at least three dead and two in moderate or serious condition. Two bodies were extricated from the wrecked cars, and one woman died of her wounds on the way to the hospital. Most of the bus passengers are reported to have suffered only light injuries, though at least one - an infant - is in serious condition.

An eyewitness said that he saw the bulldozer ram the bus several times, and then continue on in his attempt to run down passersby and cars. "Some cars were able to get away, but at least one was not, and he rammed his shovel right into the windshield," the man said.

The terrorist is a 30-year-old father of two from the Arab neighborhood of Tzur Baher in eastern Jerusalem - the same neighborhood in which the perpetrator of the Merkaz HaRav slaughter lived.

As of 2 PM, a baby in light condition was in Shaarei Tzedek Hospital - but its parents have not yet been located. The parents of another baby were found somewhat earlier.

Magen David Adom sources confirm that the incident, which began at the intersection of Jaffa and Sarei Yisrael Streets, was a terror attack. The Arab tractor driver crushed or damaged at least six cars and two buses. One Toyota car, for instance, is totally crushed; the woman driver was killed.

An emergency situation was declared in the capital.

Construction work on the new light-railway is taking place in the area, and Arab workers, including tractor drivers, are a familiar sight on the scene.

The overturned bus lay on its side on the sidewalk outside the old Shaarei Tzedek building, which are the current offices and studios of the Israel Broadcasting Authority. Several reporters were eyewitnesses to the attack.

The security services are investigating whether the terrorist was acting alone and without backing from a known terrorist organization, as was apparently the case this past March, when an eastern Jerusalem terrorist murdered seven students in Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav.

Once again an Israeli Arab murders Jews in Jerusalem, if you want to know why we see an increase in attacks by Israeli Arabs.

It is because they smell the weakness of Israeli leaders.

Strong leadership and a true war against the Palestinians will right many wrongs.

Ex-Iran Envoy: X-Ray Death Plot Targeted Ahmadinejad



(IsraelNN.com) Abolfazi Zohrevand, Iran's former ambassador to Rome, revealed more details on the alleged assassination plot against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and said he was the target of an X-ray death plot.

Ahmadinejad was in Iran for a United Nations global summit when authorities uncovered the plan to kill him, the former envoy stated. He claimed that devices detected high-intensity radiation at Ahmadinejad's temporary residence in Rome.

PA Arabs: MIA Deal Shows 'Israel Only Understands Strength'

28 Sivan 5768, 01 July 08 11:42
by Gil Ronen

(IsraelNN.com) Following the deal with Hizbullah, the Arabs of Judea and Samaria ("Palestinians") feel more strongly than ever that "Israel only understands strength," according to a Saudi newspaper.

The paper, Al Sharq Al-Awsat, reported that this attitude has been strengthened by Israel's reported flexibility toward Hamas's demands to free prisoners who were involved in hurting Israelis as part of the deal to free abducted soldier Gilad Shalit. The paper says that the prisoners' relatives have "begun to lose hope" that the Fatah-PA will be able to secure their release through negotiations with Israel.

Deal 'invites violence'
The PA-Fatah's "Minister for Prisoners" Ashraf Al-Ajrami said that Israel's willingness to free the prisoners in swaps after it refused to do so as part of the "peace process" embarrasses the PA, broadcasts "negative messages" and invites violence. The proper way to release prisoners is through diplomacy, he said.

Hamas leader Mahmoud A-Zahar said Monday that the release of Samir Kuntar is "a positive precedent" for Hamas which will use it in talks with Israel and demand the release of prisoners "that Israel considers to be murderers."

39% of Arabs: Israel is weaker
A survey of six Arab Middle Eastern countries found that 39% of the Arabs think that Israel has become weaker, and that it is only a matter of time until it is defeated. The survey was conducted by Dr. Shibli Talahmi of Princeton University for the Saban Center in the Brookings Institute, and surveyed "urban and educated" people in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Morocco and the United Arab Emirates.

99% of the Shiite Muslims who were surveyed agreed with the statement about Israel's weakness.

Annapolis backfired
The survey found that 50% of the Arabs do not believe Israel will ratify a peace treaty based on the June 4 1967 borders. 55% expect long tern violence in the region if the current "peace process" collapses. 86% see the "Israeli-Palestinian" conflict as the major problem in the region. A full 100% of the people surveyed in Jordan said this was so, as did 99% of those surveyed in Lebanon.

The survey showed that the Annapolis conference and the Bush administration's attempts to weaken Hamas failed and that Arab support for the terror group has increased over the last year.

When will the leadership of Israel learn how to live in the Middle East?

They keep acting like we are living in some region other than the Middle East.

Once Israel had a status as supermen, based on the actions we took and our attitude towards our enemies, this current generation of leaders has squandered this and we now are viewed as weak and pitiful.

One more time we must repeat that competent leadership in Israel should have one goal and only one goal when it comes to our enemies victory and part of that victory will be the replacing of the red "S" on our shirts.
