Let the IDF Win (Tnu LiTzahal LiNatzeach)

Deterrence is a crucial factor in maintaining security, and the absence of an appropriate response to an act of aggression perpetuates further acts of aggression.

It’s a wonder that there must be a slogan championing the most basic and obvious of statements, but cases like “David the Nahlawi” unfortunately prove that those slogans are needed now more than ever.

  1. Israel is selling itself out by it’s own fifth column of varied ideologies and do gooders. Israel will be destroyed from within, thus making the job easier for those from the outside….Wake up Israel, you are on your own, try a bit of national unity.

  2. israel need feiglin to lead get back to torah, God wil destroy the fakestinians, joshua you expand dont give land away

    Liberals.have become a cancer in israel…As in America and europe.
    Liberal American Jews support Obama who is a Muslim and no friend of Israel…

  4. It’s ridiculous!
    What do they expect leaders of the IDF’s?
    International media have long been decided:
    money is more important to Arabs than the truth! Israeli military and civilian life is cheap…

  5. Leave the IDF alone, they know what to do under harsh enough conditions. Hats off to our IDF

    Those radical left-wing Israeli NGOs receive also funds from the unscrupulous lefty tyrant New Isrel Fund (NIF). One of such NGO is Shatil.

    Shatil members are invinted to forums to which (state, regional & municipal) Israeli officials , IDF & top police officers are also invited to hear Shatil “lecturers” brainwash them in pseudo-legal angles that they also relate to the crime war petitions filed abroad against Israelis when those travel for example also to the UK.

    The Shatil indoctrination general lines on “restrain” & “politcal correctness” are sharia compliant with the “racially superior” Islamic policies of dhimmitude that, among many others life, administration & policies matters, are aimed to humiliate & disgrace the IDF soldier.

    And in this article case, to undermine, delegitimise & paralyze to a maximum the Israel’ …Right to Self-Defence, the Israel’ Deterrence.

    Is not just because that the muslims say “they desire death as much as Israelis desire life”. But it’s because they seek “martyrdom” which they have turned into Islamic industry, not only to recruits members & adherants to sustain the muslims opposition to the Jewish State, But also in order to file war crime lawsuit against Israelis that are compelled to defend themselves.

    Hence the Hitlerite Nazi-Islamic Jihadi Ideologue Abbas that signed 15 conventions, Not in order to abide by the spirit of those conventions, but in order to exploite, use them & turn them into Sharia Compliant, In this article case , against Israel.

    Joseph, I can truly understand your frustration. It's amazing to go back in history and realize all human beings the second time around came from the 3 sons of Noah, being Ham, Shem and Yefed. We are all related over time and created via the dust of the earth and the spirit of ADONAI yet so many do not have this knowledge. Reminds me of North and South in the USA and the wild wild west. What are we here on earth for? To build or destroy. Is this what ADONAI wants. I hope not. People have a major problem getting along whether they are married to each other or not. So what do you suggest we do to improve relationships with one another. Who will stop bullying first? We need a common ground and how can we do it unless ADONAI gets down here toute suite. To Life with Love.
