Not Hercules, Not Rambo, Not even Superman. These are not the heroes of Israel. The heroes of Israel were the people placed on this earth that chose to live their lives for the benefit of something bigger than they were. Israel. The dream of freedom, the dream of Jewish sovereignty in their homeland, and the dream of bringing Israel and the Jewish Nation to it's destiny, being a light unto the nations. They are winners. They are winners because though life may be harder due of the choices they made, they know they are doing the right thing, and a good thing. Having children is hard. But it is good. Being kind is often hard, but it is good. Working diligently is hard, but it is an important ethic to have. These people who often pay a high price for their dedication, are the real heroes of Israel because they are the salt of the earth. They are the ones who don't just talk, they do. They settle the Land that has sat desolate for 2,000 years. They have turned it around to produce fruits and vegetables, family neighborhoods and jobs and schools and parks and all around beauty. They have brought LIFE back to the Land. They are the 'Dry Bones' that have grown sinews and flesh around them and have been given the breath of life (see Ezekiel chapt. 37) These heroes serve in the army to protect the nation from its enemies. Their children are the most motivated and idealistic of any population in Israel as a whole. Their bodies, their homes, their presence is the buffer zone for the most populated cities in Israel.
Long live the Heroes of Israel.
I hope you will watch this trailer and then when the whole documentary comes out, that you will watch that as well and you will send it out to others. This documentary is a project being done by a friend named Ezra Ridgley. He writes:
This video is disturbing to watch. It is I guess, the M.O. of Muslim extremists to pick on the weak; civilians, women, children, babies, and in this case, more than weak, rather, DEAD. No fight will be put up by the deceased! What brave men!
60 seconds into the film, you see a Jewish tomb stone being knocked over and desecrated.
I.Q. Al Rassooli writes me about this video, "At the beginning they are saying "these are CROSSES " destroy them and when they saw the Star of David they said "these are Hebrew letter of al yahhood". While DESECRATING they were of course glorifying their god with "Allahu Akbar".
We saw the Nazis do this to Jewish cemeteries in Europe. In Jerusalem, we have the Mount of Olives cemetery that is also often destroyed and vandalized by Arabs. Islamic arrogance knows no bounds, especially when their arrogance and demands are appeased and protected by 'political correctness' and western good manners. Islamic crimes, terrorism and its accompanying Jihad, must not be tolerated by the West, especially in their own countries. This particular crime you will see in the video against the dead is intolerable. The culprits are not wearing masks, and should be easily identified. I wonder what the government of this country will do/has done? How long will we tolerate the intolerable?
UPDATE: A reader sent me the following: "As the resident Australian member, I can clarify where exactly this took place. The graveyard was actually an ANZAC Aussie war cemetary in Libya. It happened a couple of months ago. The provisional government in Libya had to make some quick and profuse apologies for the antics of its people in this desecration. As a serious COUNTERPOINT to it...Israel has been EXEMPLARY in helping look after the ANZAC war cemetary in Beersheva Israel. Israel definitely has best-practice...whereas Libya really dropped the ball letting their idiots do this at the Libyan ANZAC cemetary."
Also, I was correct in saying that I cannot vouch for the accompanying text from this video on YOUTUBE . The actual translation of what they were saying in the video I got from Walid Shoebat who is an Arab. He sent me the following:
Israelis went to bed last night on the dissolving of the government and early elections. We woke up this morning to a new and shocking reality: NO EARLY ELECTIONS & a NEW GOVERNMENT COALITION with Kadima and Likud, with the opposition head, Shaul Mofaz, now #2 in government after Netanyahu. [Anyone remember Shaul Mofaz yelling 'Shakran, shakran, shakran (liar, liar, liar) about Bibi just a few months ago? And Mofaz saying that "I intend to replace Netanyahu", Mofaz said …. I will not join his government. ]
Bibi now has 94 seats out of 120 in his coalition, and a pretty stable government. Israelis woke up to a new reality, and are still in shock. I haven't seen so many talking heads on the news for maybe 20 years or so.
Yair Lapid is spilling his guts out. Critics are using words like 'ugly', 'it stinks', 'they are using the ideology of 'keeping their seats'' etc...
Leiberman and Shas have been taken down a notch. They won't be able to threaten Bibi with toppling the government if they don't get their demands met.
The talking heads are pulling their hair out and reminding the public of the zig-zagging of Mofaz from Kadima.
others are saying Bibi pulled the rug out from under early elections in September in order to have a broad based government to [possibly] make an attack on Iran's nuclear reactors.
The rest of the people are taking Dramamine.
But perhaps Nachman Shai of the Kadima party said it best and succinctly this morning on the A.M. TV News in Israel....
He said something akin to, 'What's the shock? Bibi did exactly what he said he was going to do. Bibi said after [winning] the elections, he would build the broadest based government that he could, and he just did it now, without having to go to early elections, and without spending all the tax payer's money'.
Brilliant on Bibi's part.
The next elections for Israel are now scheduled for November of 2013.
Never a dull moment in Israel. And yet, YAWN.
(updated version from a blog I wrote in 2011)
Independence means never having to apologize for hitting an anti-semitic, terror supporting, anarchist in the face with your gun.
Independence means never having to board a terrorist-supporting flotilla ship, where we arm our soldiers with paint guns, instead of meaning business.
Recently, I did a radio show with former Islamic terrorist Walid Shoebat where he discussed how the Islamic world was getting crazier and crazier by the day.
Camel urine for cures from baldness to cancer to personal hygiene products is going viral, sweeping across the Arab world with nary a 'bad' review posted anywhere to warn people that it is about as effective as snake oil sold from the back of a covered wagon by the latest medicine man scammer who has his 'plant' in the audience exclaim, "I can see, I can see! It's a miracle!!!" And why are there no camel urine cure 'reviews' anywhere on Arabic websites or blogs saying:
In Kuwait, insulting/cursing the Islamic prophet Mohammed, or his wives, can get you the death penalty. See news report, here where it states, "Kuwait’s parliament provisionally passed amendments to the Gulf state’s penal code stipulating the death penalty for those who curse the Islamic god, Islam’s Prophet or his wives, theAFP reported."
So if Mohammed gave his stamp of approval on camel urine, who is a follower of the Hadith to say anything to the contrary? And is it worth writing a negative review and possibly get the death penalty for it?
On the website Islam-Watch.org, one person commented, 'maybe allah's apostle believed, "Eat Sh*t". 30 billion flies cant be wrong.'
