Close your eyes, breathe in deeply, now exhale slowly… That was easy, wasn’t it? Not for everyone…
So, the latest evidence suggests Palestinians from Gaza entered an Egyptian army base, murdered 13 border crossing guards, stole two vehicles and attempted to ram them across the border with Israel. Alert Israeli soldiers stopped the vehicles while Israeli helicopters in the air disabled one of the vehicles, killing all aboard. Thirteen Egyptians were killed, in addition to at least 3 terrorists. No Israeli casualties. Hamas has ordered all tunnels between Egypt and Gaza closed and tensions are mounting as Egyptian air force jets are patrolling the border, searching for those responsible.
Okay, so that’s the evidence and information we have so far. According to the Israeli government, the quick actions of Israel’s soldiers prevented a greater tragedy from happening.
According to those who support the Palestinians cause…well, they’re stuck. They have to lie because they can’t possibly work with the truth. So, here’s how it goes, according to the twisted logic of the other side.
You see, what happened was….um…wait…okay, I’ve got it…yeah – so, Israelis sneaked across the border and attacked and murdered the Egyptians. Then, um…to cover their actions, they stole two armored vehicles…and rammed it across the Israeli border.
Oh, the dead Palestinian terrorists inside the vehicle? Let me think…okay, okay – remember Aladdin’s lamp? Well, a vicious Israeli found it and used one of his three wishes to magically transport three to eight Palestinians…innocent, Palestinians, of course…from their dilapidated, poverty-stricken homes where because of the Israelis they were forced to beat their wives every other week, into the belly of the vehicle just seconds before it was exploded by the alert…um…no, by the very lucky Israeli soldiers…um…who knew about the vehicle because…oh, yes, because the vicious Israeli used another of Aladdin’s wishes to alert them.
There, that’ll work. I wonder if I could get CNN or BBC to run this important and accurate news item. Oh wait, I forgot to use the word “staged.”
And now, a note from our less informed tweets:
Staged attack? Seriously, you can’t make this up…
Well, actually, I was right. Story confirmed not just by “my” brainwashing media, but by others, including the Egyptians themselves.
Oh, okay, I guess that clinches it – it must have been a staged Israeli attack hoping to …hoping to…um…and what would we gain by attacking ourselves? Guess I’ll have to wait for part 2 of the great Palestinian propaganda machine to finish spinning this one out.

In all the years (and this week it’s exactly 14 years) since our daughter was murdered, we have not found a single Arabic-language post, article, tweet or speech condemning that attack in the center of Jerusalem or the killings.
Everyone is angry at the ongoing Arab terrorism, but what does murdering a baby have to do with protecting Jewish lives or furthering Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel?

The Egyptians have never proven themselves to be particularly open or honest in their dealings with Israel. At least four wars have been fought between our countries. Peace is a fragile thing that must be nurtured. It must be built on honest dealings and trust. Moving tanks and anti-aircraft missiles violates not only the agreement, but the trust as well.
We would have three minutes if an attack came from Lebanon. Three minutes to get to shelter – and worry about where everyone else is and if they got to shelter in time. That’s if the missiles come from Lebanon. I don’t know how much time we’d have if the attack came from Syria or Iran…more, less, who knows.
Can you understand the concept that a young mother was happy that her son now had a gas mask? When you can, you’ll understand what it is to be Israeli – at least in part.
I wonder if anyone in the Olympics has thought of the reality that people in Israel’s south live with every day.
There is one great truth that all Israelis know; that all Jews have accepted. Today’s modern Jew, at least in Israel, is different than the Jew of yesteryear.
I read an article today. My emotions went up and down as I read it, ending with the thought that the man in the story was about to embark on a journey of a thousand steps and that somewhere along that journey, his grandparents would smile.
Yesterday, Gaza supporters began tweeting that Israeli helicopters were randomly firing… I saw the video. It does not look random to me.
According to the Israeli government, the quick actions last night of Israel’s soldiers prevented a greater tragedy from happening.
