      Here's What To Do During the Holiday...

      by Tamar Yonah

      Because of the Pesach (Passover) Holiday, most of the staff will not be working regular schedules, or be working at all.  In the meantime, I suggest a very wonderful video that was produced by my guest Yuval Ovadia, from this last Tuesday's show called:

      He Made It in Hollywood, but Left It for the Holy Land
      Yuval Ovadia was an average Israeli who, after finishing his army service, decided to leave Israel for the glitz of Hollywood. He moved to New York and struggled to make it. Years later, after studying film and acting, he finally won roles in New York and Hollywood. He had moved up to the good life; Hollywood party invitations, starring roles in action movies, an apt. on Park Ave., - the works. He had made it.  So what happened to him after all his hard work, that made him want to chuck it all, move back to Israel and become a Torah observant Jew?  Watch his video.   ( http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7069571280084715695&q=the+final+journey )

      The radio show interview with Yuval Ovadia is on our web page: www.IsraelNationalRadio.com or directly at: mms://msmedia.a7.org/arutz7/shows/ty/tamar070327.mp3     <---- Just copy and paste to a new browser window.

      If you would like to be in touch with him, then you can email me and I will forward all letters to him.  ( Tamar@IsraelNationalRadio.com )  I will be back to the mic this coming Sunday, April 8th, with Malkah Fleisher. Until then, most of us are on vacation, but there will be some LIVE shows, so keep an eye out.

      The VIDEO that is very inspiring and apt for this Pesach Holiday is about the END DAYS and is full of prophesies that have come true today (Made by Yuval Ovadia). It is a great video to watch and send out to your friends.         I'd love to hear your comments on it, you can post them below this blog entry.

      "Shiite" Happens --(to the Enemies of Israel)

      by Tamar Yonah


      I am not happy at the misfortune of others, but being that this population voted the Hamas in to be their elected terrorist leaders to represent them and govern them, I can't help see the poetic justice in the sewage 'tzunami' that fell upon Israel's enemies.

      Of course the Arabs in the P.A. blame us for their misfortunes, but the reason the sewage spilled into their village was because of the Arabs stealing and selling the sand to construction companies.

      Videos You Should Really View - #1

      by Tamar Yonah

      I will occasionally post videos that I think are important to see or just entertaining to the readers of Arutz 7 and other Israel lovers.

      Here is one I just received from a listener and I thought you would get some enjoyment from. 

      UN "I will not express thanks for that statement"
      United Nations

      It is posted on YouTube.com and says:

      (www.unwatch.org) UN Watch exposes the monumental hypocrisies, terrible lies and moral inversions of the new and supposedly reformed UN Human Rights Council. Millions of victims and 191 countries ignored. Darfur atrocities outright denied. Self-proclaimed defenders of Palestinian rights -- Assad, Ahamadinejad, Khaddafi and UN expert John Dugard -- care only about scapegoating Israel. Council President Luis de Alba of Mexico responds with unprecedented announcement that he rejects the speech as "inadmissible" -- and issues a ban on any speech that similarly criticizes the council or its member states. NGO community is shocked at denial of free speech and open debate.

      The United Nations didn't like the speech. It moves my pupick, like I could care if they liked it.  It was the truth.  It should be shouted out loud and clear to the world.  Please pass this on, everyone who values the truth should view it.  You can also leave a comment below.

      Fatah and Hamas - Is There REALLY a Difference?

      by Tamar Yonah

      Clap your hands!  Raise your arms and dance!  Happy Days are here again.  Now there will be peace.  

      Well, if not peace, then at least a real hope for peace, as the Fatah and the Hamas have agreed to form a unity 'government'. (See news article:  'Fatah and the Hamas have agreed to form a unity 'government' .)   But does it make a difference?  IS there any difference between the Fatah (PLO) and the the Hamas?  We are fed by the media and by the governments of the world pushing the 'peace process' that the fatah/PLO has changed, and now will work towards peace with israel, striving to live side by side with us.  The Fatah and its leader Mahmood Abbas are supposed to be 'moderates'.  They wear suits and ties.  They were supposed to have changed their charter after the Oslo Accords, to stop their armed struggle.  They never did this. They never revised their charter.

      Which is Fatah and which is the Hamas? Both are publicly parading with weapons they use (or plan to use) on Israel.

      Which photo is which?  Which is Fatah and which is the Hamas?  Both are publicly parading with weapons they use (or plan to use) on Israel.

      Both are terror entities.  Both have planned and committed terror attacks against Israelis.  Both continue to work for the destruction and demise of the Jewish State. The only real difference is that the Hamas is more religious oriented, while the Fatah/PLO is less focused on Islam.

      See the Hamas Charter: (Here are just the first 12 resolutions, for brevity's sake) Pay attention to what is highlighted in red.

      Text of the Charter:

      Article 1: Palestine is the homeland of the Arab Palestinian people; it is an indivisible part of the Arab homeland, and the Palestinian people are an integral part of the Arab nation.

      Article 2: Palestine, with the boundaries it had during the British Mandate, is an indivisible territorial unit.

      Article 3: The Palestinian Arab people possess the legal right to their homeland and have the right to determine their destiny after achieving the liberation of their country in accordance with their wishes and entirely of their own accord and will.

      Article 4: The Palestinian identity is a genuine, essential, and inherent characteristic; it is transmitted from parents to children. The Zionist occupation and the dispersal of the Palestinian Arab people, through the disasters which befell them, do not make them lose their Palestinian identity and their membership in the Palestinian community, nor do they negate them.

      Article 5: The Palestinians are those Arab nationals who, until 1947, normally resided in Palestine regardless of whether they were evicted from it or have stayed there. Anyone born, after that date, of a Palestinian father - whether inside Palestine or outside it - is also a Palestinian.

      Article 6: The Jews who had normally resided in Palestine until the beginning of the Zionist invasion will be considered Palestinians.

      Article 7: That there is a Palestinian community and that it has material, spiritual, and historical connection with Palestine are indisputable facts. It is a national duty to bring up individual Palestinians in an Arab revolutionary manner. All means of information and education must be adopted in order to acquaint the Palestinian with his country in the most profound manner, both spiritual and material, that is possible. He must be prepared for the armed struggle and ready to sacrifice his wealth and his life in order to win back his homeland and bring about its liberation.

      Article 8: The phase in their history, through which the Palestinian people are now living, is that of national (watani) struggle for the liberation of Palestine. Thus the conflicts among the Palestinian national forces are secondary, and should be ended for the sake of the basic conflict that exists between the forces of Zionism and of imperialism on the one hand, and the Palestinian Arab people on the other. On this basis the Palestinian masses, regardless of whether they are residing in the national homeland or in diaspora (mahajir) constitute - both their organizations and the individuals - one national front working for the retrieval of Palestine and its liberation through armed struggle.

      Article 9: Armed struggle is the only way to liberate Palestine. Thus it is the overall strategy, not merely a tactical phase. The Palestinian Arab people assert their absolute determination and firm resolution to continue their armed struggle and to work for an armed popular revolution for the liberation of their country and their return to it. They also assert their right to normal life in Palestine and to exercise their right to self-determination and sovereignty over it.

      Article 10: Commando action constitutes the nucleus of the Palestinian popular liberation war. This requires its escalation, comprehensiveness, and the mobilization of all the Palestinian popular and educational efforts and their organization and involvement in the armed Palestinian revolution. It also requires the achieving of unity for the national (watani) struggle among the different groupings of the Palestinian people, and between the Palestinian people and the Arab masses, so as to secure the continuation of the revolution, its escalation, and victory.

      Article 11: The Palestinians will have three mottoes: national (wataniyya) unity, national (qawmiyya) mobilization, and liberation.

      Article 12: The Palestinian people believe in Arab unity. In order to contribute their share toward the attainment of that objective, however, they must, at the present stage of their struggle, safeguard their Palestinian identity and develop their consciousness of that identity, and oppose any plan that may dissolve or impair it.


      Ok, I lied to you.  This is NOT the Hamas Charter.  It is the PLO/Fatah Charter, the charter of the 'Moderates'.  These terrorists are supposed to be the good guys, the 'moderate' ones, the ones that are seeking peace with Israel.  After reading this PLO/Fatah charter, do you believe it is looking for peace with Israel?  Does this group even agree to live side by side with an Israel, or is the whole charter saying there is no legitimacy for Israel, and that only a 'Palestine' can replace it?

      Sadly, the Fatah and the Hamas want more of this for us here in Israel:

      Warning:  graphic photos are posted below - The 'Brave' can scroll down.


























          Terrorist Bombing Strikes Jerusalem, March 21, 2002(This last photo taken from: http://www.palestinefacts.org/pf_1991to_now_plo_charter_revise.php )

      I have more graphic and gruesome photos I can post, but those would be too difficult for most people to view.  These three above give enough of an idea of the brutality of these terrorists on innocent people.  But I have said this again and again, if the public saw what a terror scene really looked like, they would be so enraged, so incensed, that they would demand an end to the pussy-footing around with these so-called peace processes. 

      Mr. Olmert, read their charter.  Read their charter!

      Eurovision 2007 - Double Standard for Israel?

      by Tamar Yonah

      The group's lead singer, Kobi Oz, is himself from Sderot, a town in Israel that has seen kassam rockets slamming into it's residential areas for a number of years, killing and injuring its residents, with the world looking on in apathy.
      I couldn't believe that THIS was the song Israel was going to send to the Eurovision Song Contest this year.   When I first heard it, I said, "Oh my Gawwwd!" I was pretty taken aback!  The song was half rap, half 'just weird'.  It certainly wasn't a 'pretty' song, or one that Israel usually sends in for a contest entry. And then I started reading about the song and the Europeans reaction to it.  It changed my mind.  Israel's song choice is controversial, I won't deny it.  But objections coming from the Europeans, really ticked me off. 
      Our song entry this year: "Push the Button" is by the band called Teapacks.  The song is a wry piece on the terrorists, and the nuclear threats Israel faces from these (Arab/Islamic?) leaders. The group's lead singer, Kobi Oz, is himself from Sderot, a town in Israel that has seen kassam rockets slamming into it's residential areas for a number of years, killing and injuring its residents, with the world looking on in apathy. 

      A sample of the lyrics to "PUSH THE BUTTON": 

      The world is full of terror
      If someone makes an error
      He's gonna blow us up to biddy biddy kingdom come
      There are some crazy rulers they hide and try to fool us
      With demonic, technologic willingness to harm

      They're gonna push the button
      push the button push the bu push the bu push the button

      ....And I don't want to die
      I want to see the flowers bloom
      Don't want a go capoot ka boom
      And I don't want to cry
      I wanna have a lot of fun
      Just sitting in the sun

      Kjell Ekholm of the EBU's Eurovision Song Contest's reference group stated that "It's absolutely clear that this kind of message is not appropriate for the competition". 

      Anyone who takes offence to Israel's song choice, and says it is not proper for the Eurovision contest, need only look at last year's entry that actually WON the contest.  They were dressed like 'Decomposed Monsters who were part Klingon, part Viking.  They donned metalic garb with sharp spikes, and had fingernails that looked like it could slice a person in half. They even brought on stage a killer axe. (see second photo below)

      Their song entry  contained these lyrics below:
      ...Wings on my back
      I got horns on my head
      My fangs are sharp
      And my eyes are red
      Not quite an angel
      Or the one that fell
      Now choose to join us or go straight to Hell...

      This group was none other than Finland's own heavy metal band called LORDI. 

      Finland's 'song' won the Eurovison contest last year!
      So, though I really don't care for our rap and rock song that Israel will be performing, maybe this is a good, "stick it to yuh Europeans, with love, from Israel's citizens" who are constantly being threatened and attacked by our neighbors, while Europe feeds the terror beasts and tells us that we are the ones at fault. 

      Our message to the millions of Europeans? It may be we Jews who are gonna get attacked, but not only us.  It's not JUST the Jews, it's FIRST the Jews, and then YOU!  First the Saturday People, and then the Sunday People. 

      And Europe better watch out, as their continent has earned the new name of EurAbia .  Perhaps that is why there are objections to Israel's entry this year?  Perhaps the Europeans are intimidated by this bold and blunt song?  Perhaps they are afraid of getting the Mullahs angry?  So if the powers that be in the Eurovision decide to nix Israel's song choice, it could be safe to say that (with last year's winner) it would prove them to be hypocritical, or holding double standards.  Letting a violent death themed song with axes on stage win the contest, and then disqualifying Israel's song that says we want to live in the sun and not get bombed, is so typically 'European' when it comes to the Jews.

      So go figure, what is good taste and acceptable these days? Perhaps it is better to forfeit vying for the contest's number one spot and just get the message through that their contest that feigns to promote peace and love, ignores any real truth to the matter. If we just bring that message to the millions of viewers who will be watching, perhaps we will come out the real winners?
