      Hamas Kills Fatah

      by Tamar Yonah

      WARNING!  Disturbing video.  HAMAS KILL FATAH IN GAZA

      This is hard to watch.  Maybe if some people who are still convinced that Israel is unjustified in going into Gaza, this will show them why.  Now, not to make a mistake, the Fatah is a terror organization as well, and both are our enemies and want our Land. Both murder Jews in terror attacks.  However, the reason I am showing this video is to show the savageness of these Klingon/Romulan/Alien Monsters, because if they do this to their own brother Arabs, just think what they would do to us!

      Again, this very disturbing to watch, I cannot emphasize it enough! Don't view if you are squeamish.

      A Day In The Life of the IDF in Gaza

      by Tamar Yonah

      Many of the soldiers who are in Gaza are still wearing the same uniforms they came in and unless they brought a change of socks and underwear… TMI   That's what I heard being talked about on one of the news shows trying to describe what our poor soldiers were going through in Gaza.  They have to sleep (if they even get a chance for sleep) on the cold tile or cement floors.  If they are lucky they might find a couch or bed left in an apartment where the Arab families have fled.

       

      Tank-istim (soldiers in the Tank Corps) have it very hard as well. They have to stay in their tanks for long hours, sometimes days.  They have to eat, sleep, etc there.  It's hard in the winter, having to sleep on cold metal floors.  The rainy weather makes for mud and harder maneuvering.

      Reservists are being called up to join the enlisted forces.  Their mission:  Find Hamas fighters, find tunnels, find weapons and neutralize.

      Here's an arab school that the Hamas booby-trapped to kill IDF soldiers and/or to blame Israel in the media for 'targeting their children'.

      Soldiers can't just walk into Arab homes through the front doors. Entering through the front doors could be deadly.  They might be booby-trapped.  Instead, entrances are blasted through the walls on the side of these Gazan houses.   For an amazing story I told today on my show about a 'miracle' that happened in Gaza and that is making its rounds within the Israeli people, listen to my show today. It will give you goose-bumps.

      The TV news today show IDF soldiers tired, but motivated and in good spirits.  They are wearing all their gear; heavy backpacks, weapons, etc.  They have to walk, hunching forward, to balance the weight of their packs. After entering an abandoned house to set down for a while, many of the soldiers lighten their load setting down where they find a corner in the house and rest.  Some scenes show the soldiers standing together, prayer books in hand, and davening (praying) their morning, afternoon or evening prayers. Then it's time for the search and destroy (tunnel) mission.  Look what our soldiers have to contend with when trying to find tunnels in the 'innocent' arab civilian's homes….

      One soldier on the news this evening, named Itai, tells his strange story:  After doing some time in Gaza, he returned home to his family's house in the south of the country. His 'welcome home' was a missile that slammed into his home.  What didn't find him in Gaza, almost found him at home.

      The news just had a report on that brought tears to my eyes,  one that often happens when we find oursleves in a war situation. The country comes together.  A project is underway for Haredi Jews to 'adopt' a soldier to pray for him and study Torah in his honor.  An office was opened with Haredi women taking names by telephone, of mothers of IDF soldiers who are asking that their sons be prayed for.  Names are taken and then given out to the Haredi community.

      Another project reported on shows Israeli kids and youth packing boxes of goodies to Israeli soldeirs.  Enclosed is a personal letter from the person who doanted the package with their phone number included.  The news showed the packages being handed out to very happy and appreciative soldiers.  One soldier read the letter from his package outloud for the cameras, and then seeing the phone number left there, whipped out a cell phone and called up the person to thank them.  A young woman answered the phone and was so moved that he took the time to call and thank her.  She said to this soldier -whom she doesn't know, that she prays that he return to his family safely and soon.  Almost both of them were in tears.  I know I was.

      Later, a visit to the soldiers from the President of Israel had them saying a prayer and singing 'Am Yisrael Chai" The nation of Israel lives!

      Please all, for one moment, let's all say or leave a prayer for the safety of our brave soldiers and all our brothers and sisters under missile and rocket attack.

      Amazing Things: Flying Men

      by Tamar Yonah

      This blog post has nothing to do with the war, politics, Israel, or anything I usually write about. Instead of focusing on battles and destruction, I am taking a break, and focusing on something beautiful. I'll get back to the war and the politcial situation soon, but just for now, ahhhhh. I am just giddy with the beauty and amazing feats Mankind can do in this world.

      G-d is so awesome that He lets us discover, conquor and achieve! Here's two amazing videos I love to watch, and I can't help thinking how beautiful it is, and how it must please G-d when we get together and create such beauty.

      I just got this next thing from a Brazilian friend. It takes a minute or two to load (load it completely so it doesn't buffer and ruin the effect.) It is slow at first, but be patient, this is one of THE most amazing things I have EVER seen in my life.
      wingsuit base jumping from Ali on Vimeo.

      Watch it here, but better to view it on a big window by clicking HERE ( http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=1778399&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1 ) and then put up your speakers. Then return to the blog and write me some beautiful comments. I need to just breath in the beauty the world has to offer ...for today.

      Klingons & Romulans

      by Tamar Yonah

      These people are not from our planet. 

      Please, please, please, watch this video and then pass it on.  The begining is a bit slow, but stick with it, you won't be sorry.   (Link to video below) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UptNr0v1p3E

      These people are not from our planet.  They have given up their humanity.  At least the Klingons and Romulans had SOME integrity and honor. These people???  I have no words.   If you do, post them.

      (Thanks to Prof. Eidelberg who alerted those on his email list about this video.)

      Kid Killers!

      by Tamar Yonah

      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'
      Arab psychologist says more than half want to strap on bombs.
      "...more than half of Palestinian children aged 6-11 dream of becoming suicide bombers..."

      Or this: 14-Year-old Palestinian Attacks Settlement
      Israelis decry 'cynical usage of naive children' by terrorist groups.
      "...the Mufti of Jerusalem, the city's highest Muslim religious authority spoke of his admiration for child "martyrs."

      "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!
