For the past few weeks, this has been the view to the east of us in Shiloh.

No, it isn't some hot-air balloon with spectators in a basket touring on high. It's believed to be a spy! My camera couldn't catch it, but I see flashing lights under it.

We all know about the high tech spy satellites the Americans have photographing every garden shed and dog house in Shiloh and other Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, the Jordan Valley etc. This balloon is low tech and constant. I don't know how many there are nor how powerful its machinery is, but we believe that its controllers are convinced that it can discover the so-called "price tag" Jewish "terrorists" sic.

From sic to sick...

I think it's pretty sick that the government is so convinced that Jews set fire to that house in Duma, which resulted in the death of three Arabs that they haven't been investigating in other directions. Actually, the police haven't been able to pin in on anyone, any Jew, which is why they have the spy camera up there trying to record everything like in the television show, Person of InterestAt least that is the story we've been hearing about that balloon.

If you take a good look at the writing on the scene in Duma, it does not look like it was written by a Jewish Israeli male.

Actually, it is not a writing font style taught in Jewish schools here at all! Handwriting has styles, like spoken language has accents. And this writing style is more like Arabic than Hebrew.

Another important point is the that the Dawabshe home is well inside the village and the chance that some Jewish youth, unfamiliar with the village, having safely made their way in, burnt the house, wrote the message and then got out safely is impossible. That's as realistic as a James Bond movie.

In addition there have been other fires in homes of that clan, which have been blamed on feuding and "electricity problems" sic.

But the Israeli Government and Police have not given up; they are still looking for Jews to frame.
