How evil? How evil can a society be that uses its children as human shields? Where is the outcry of the oh-so-moral United Nations and Human Rights groups? Of course, our cries of justice fall on deaf ears, and I do not even waste the time writing to these Jew-Hating and G-d hating organizations. However, it is still good to combat pictures with pictures.
I was watching Al-Jazeera this morning on the television and have to admit, that the photos of the dead bodies near the UN. school were quite ghastly. (No showing the actual video the IDF took of them shooting mortar shells from that building they had civilians in.) I noticed how they repeat showing the footage of their dead over and over again, to drill into viewer's minds how horrible Israel is.
Well, I can't fight fire with fire, becasue Israel does not usually allow photos of people's dead bodies to be exposed on TV as the Arabs thrive on doing with their own. But I CAN show you some of the things that the world does NOT see, and that is how these Arab Muslims treat their own civilians; men, women and children.
People say they care so much about these poor Arab children who are just innocent pawns. We see these photos:
But they don't show you THESE photos:
The Muslims are not ashamed to publicize that they raise and use Children to fight for them.
From a Yemen News website: "Palestinian children fight alongside the adults in the resistance."
And this news story: Palestinian children 'dream of martyrdom'
Or this: 14-Year-old Palestinian Attacks Settlement
"There is no doubt that a child [martyr] suggests that the new generation will carry on the mission with determination," Sheik 'Ikrima Sabri told the Egyptian weekly, Al-Ahram Al-Arabi.
"The younger the martyr, the greater and the more I respect him," said the mufti.
And from FOX news: "A new textbook is teaching Palestinian kids to hate Israel and think of fighting Israelis as a holy Islamic duty..."
These Arabs teach their children to murder, and to desire death. Where are the human rights groups?
HUMAN SHIELDS (above and below)
View how these monsters use their own children as human shields:
View how they raise their children to become little infidel-hating monsters.
Why don't the mainstream media news networks show these photos and videos over and over again? It's a great news story and can make a novice reporter a brand name. ...Or get him fired. ...Or get his head chopped off -- maybe even by a child!

I am posting a few different things pertaining to the war in Gaza. This blog post will be more of a mish-mash, but interesting things you should know none the less.
1) An email was caught by The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF)
It seems that those nasty and angry anti-Jewish – oops, I mean, anti-Israel demonstrators are not content with stepping and burning the Israeli flag at their demonstrations and yelling to the Jews, "Go back to the ovens!". Now they are planning a new strategy:
Coming to a Synagogue Near You!
"No more demos. No more signs, chants, pithy t shirts. No more marches to nowhere.
(Thanks to Andrea for sending me this news piece from JIDF.)
My Jewish Brothers and sisters, did you think you could avoid getting the flak by hiding in your Monsey homes? Go now to: www.Nbn.org.il and fill out a form to come home. Get passports for everyone in your family NOW. Be ready to leave at a moment's notice. Things in America will not get better, they will get worse. It happened in Persia, it happened in Spain, it happened in Germany and it will happen in America. G-d has a plan, and the future of the Jewish people is NOT in Monsey, Boca Raton, London, Paris, or Melbourne. The future of the Jewish People is in Israel.
2) Attackers crashed a burning car into the gates of a French synagogue Monday night while a lecture was underway inside. A second vehicle, apparently used to push the flaming car into the synagogue, was found to hold several petrol bombs. This can happen at any synagogue around the world.

3) Though we here in Israel may be in a war and facing challenging times ahead, it will be nothing compared to what Jews will face outside of Israel where they have very few Jewish doctors and lawyers who own or even know how to use a gun and protect their family. Remember the riots in Crown Heights several years ago? The police didn't want to go in and stop the rioters. And Yanky Rosenbaum got murdered. It took more than two days for the cops to finally deem it 'calm enough' (after the pillaging and plunder and murder) to go in and make a police presence. In Israel, most homes have guns, and we know how to use them.
4) I am concerned that the prophesy telling about a 9 month occupation of Israel by a foreign entity may be coming true soon. (Gemara Yuma says: The wicked kingdom of Romi (USA) will extend on Israel for 9 months) The Gaza war is a perfect 'opening' to have our leaders tell us that we must invite in foreign troops (UN, NATO, etc? ) into the Israel Gaza areas to 'keep the peace'. Yah, like that really worked in southern Lebanon. We have had UN Peace keeping forces there since the end of the 2nd Lebanon war to keep the peace and make sure no more weapons would reach the Hezbollah. However, what happened was that the Hezbollah was able to totally restock their missiles and weapons and build up even more than what they had before the 2nd Lebanon war. – All under the nose of the UN Peace Keeping troops there.
Hello? We have our own army, the IDF, or has our government and the world forgotten? But nevermind, Bush wants his Road Map implemented and a Palestinian State to be established in the belly of Israel ASAP. Bringing in foreign troops will speed up the process. But will there be payback to the United States and the International Community for trying to wrest G-d's Land from the Jewish people? Read Ezekila Chapter 38 and decide for yourself.
5) Enjoy this brilliantly funny video that was on a blog called Elders of Zion. Thanks to whoever sent me this by email.

Oh but that the Jews had guns to protect themselves in Europe during World War II.

Long live 'disproportional response' against evil!
Israel is being castigated all over the media for using disproportional response. There is much to be said about knocking hard and devastating blows against one's enemy. Israel has been absorbing deadly attacks from these Arab terrorists, whether they be the Hamas or Mahmood Abbas' PLO, for over 7 years. First of all, if israel HAD used proportional response, we would have been bombing them each time they bombed our towns. We would have aimed for their civilians as they purposely aimed to kill ours. But no, we have not been using proportional response against the Arab terrorists. We have instead been following a policy of restraint. Only now with the Arab's onslaught and increased bombing of our population centers, has our government been forced to go in, fight back and attempt to neutralize these attacks . The immense pressure from the population was too much for Barak, Olmert and Livni to avoid reacting to, in order not to mess up their quest for establishing a PLO state here, as per the plans of the International Community, including U.S. President George Bush through his 'Road Map'.
No doubt, the Israeli government finally got the green light to defend itself, from the White House. Perhaps they felt they could let off the pressure in Israel without having to take responsibility or flak from their Arab oil buisness partners. Bush is on his way out of the White house so would receive little blame for the Gaza operation, and Obama is not yet in the White House, so he cannot really be blamed either. Thus, Israel gets a green light to defend itself without too much risk for them.
As for the media and nations around the world fuming over the wide difference in the death toll in this war, what does that say? That they want to see more dead Jews? I can never fathom how those in the West can want to see a Moslem PLO state be formed in the belly of Israel. These western nations even fund these terrorists, - the same terrorists who hate the West, burn the American flag, and threaten the European countries who host them. These same Arabs they want to give a state to, believe the Americans are the 'Big Satan' and profess to launch a Jihad on these 'Sunday People', the Christians, after they finish off the 'Saturday People', the Jews. Go figure?
And so the Jews, being the canary in the coal mine, must lead the way and defeat these Arabs who swear to our elimination. And the only way to win a war, is to use disproportionate force. If the Arabs could, you could be sure they would use disproportional force against us. They've practiced disproportional force without shame when they grouped up against us, 3, 4, 5 Arab countries at a time to defeat the one tiny Israel as in the 1948, 1956, and 1967 wars. Where was the voice and outrage of the International Community then? When these terrorists aim for and target our civilians, our schools, our playgrounds, and our synagogues, is that not disproportional? Israel tries to fight a clean war, aiming only for the terrorists, not the civilians. If Arab civilians get in the way of these attacks, it is because the terrorists use them as human shields. The terrorists purposely set up their missiles next to their mosques. The Arabs purposely attack from or take refuge in their own hospitals and children's schools, and then yell bloody murder when Israel is forced to target these places they are attacking us from.
Israel has not used proportional response against those who are attacking her. The opposite. If Israel used proportional response, we'd be bombing and blowing up their busses, their cafes and their holiday celebrations. If we used proportional response, we'd be aiming at their civilian populations like they do ours, and shooting missiles and rockets aimed at their homes, not offices and weapon caches like we do.
Those calling for Israel to use proportional response undoubtedly want to see Israel continue to bleed. Those who wish to see a more' tit for tat' response want to see this conflict continue. Tit for tat doesn't work when one wants an end to a war that has been launched against its civilians. I've never seen a battle plan that calls for a 'tit for tat' response. The only way to win a war, the only way to prevent as many causalities (on both sides) is to put an end to one's enemy's capabilities to harm you. The only way to put an end to the war is to use massive disproportional force. Crush the enemy like the allies did in WWII. Bring them to their knees so they will sue for peace as in WWII. Make them so sorry for their attacks against us, make them pay a price so steep, that they not only beg for surrender, but beg us to take back our kidnapped soldier, Gilad Shalit whom they are still holding hostage. "Please, take back your soldier, Gilad. Here, take him, just please, stop your offensive against us. We can't absorb any more blows, we surrender!" That's the only thing we should be hearing from the terrorists.
Long live disproportional response! And don't apologize for it. It's the only way to win a war.
I don't know who this guy is, but it's pretty humorous.

This blog may be very disturbing to read, so I advise you to use caution if you continue.
The question asked is, why was this report of the real murder scene kept hidden from public knowledge? I have discussed this on my show a few times, but I would like to re-emphasize here on this blog by giving you an example.
In Israel, it goes something like this: "Son, are you ok? Were you near the scene? When will you be home? Thanks G-d you're alright." And after making all the calls to our loved ones we believed could have been in the area of the attack, and after viewing film on the news at the scene which has been carefully censored, we turn off the TV and say, "tsk tsk" with our tongues and go about our day. After all, when we see the censored 'parev' film footage on TV news (wherever we are in the world) what were we allowed to actually see? We only see the coverage of people being wheeled on stretchers into ambulances. No blood, or very little of it, is shown on the news. Instead, the wounded that ARE shown, are lying on gurneys with their arms flailing. They have a pained look on their face with their hands on their head. It looks like they have a migraine headache. So why should people who see these bland scenes get incensed and demand the obliteration of the enemies attacking us? After all, what we are allowed to see just looks like a lot of peoople who got scared and are at worst suffering from shock. In Israel, the very next day, shattered store fronts at terror scenes are hurredly repaired and the blood is cleaned away.
Israeli terror victim approved for viewing. Looks like he just has a migraine headache.
Attack against Israeli civilians in a Netivot apartment.
The problem here is that the attack today on the Hamas was like swatting at a bee. You're just going to rile him up while he still has his stinger. Our own news reports say this operation will not stop attacks.
What has to be done is that this war that has been launched against Israeli citizens has to be WON by us. We have to neutralize the enemy who is attacking us, once and for all. Two weeks ago, there was a demonstration in Gaza where most of the Hamas leadership was, including the thousands that actively support them. Perhaps this demonstration should have been hit? We could have cut off the head of the snake when we had them all gathered together.
When I was speaking to my mother on the phone and telling her Israel could have attacked the Hamas leaders and their supporters at that demo, she commented, "You may be right. We're going to get flack anyway for today's attack. It wouldn't matter if we killed 2 or 20,000 it would be all the same to the world's media."
I hung up and then watched the news with my family tonight, they showed a press conference with PM Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzippi Livni and Defense Minister Ehud Barak sitting at a table and saying that they don't wish harm to Arab citizens in Gaza and will continue to make sure that food and supplies will keep flowing to them through our borders. I remarked, "Yah, like the Allied forces would worry to make sure the Nazis in Germany had food supplies? How sick to worry about a population that elected Hamas murderers to lead them." My 12 year old son seemed to agree that it was ludicrous to feed our enemies who are still holding kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit and launching missiles against us. He looked at our leaders blah-blah-blah-ing about how they are trying to be so magnanimous to our enemies and he looked at me and stated, "I wish someone would throw a shoe at them".
