Collective Punishment? Is This Arsenal From Innocent Bystanders?

The mountain of violent weaponry seized from the homes of the Arabs the IDF searched in their quest to find the kidnapped boys belies the claims these are innocent bystanders, harassed by the IDF.

A small fraction of the weapons recovered during the IDF search for the kidnapped boys on June 16, 2014.

    Hé oui les arabes sont sur armé. Et les juifs eux
    Totalement désarmés. On devrait mettre. Bibi et gantz. En prison. Pour non assistance a personne en danger de mort.
    Si ces trois jeunes avaient êtés armé et entraîné
    Le résultat aurait été différent. Mais bibi le lâche. Laisse la population sans arme. Pour se défendre. Ils poursuivent des adolescents. Qui tague des voitures arabes Et laisse les juifs se faire assassiner. Ce sont les maudits dont parle la bible. Quand les gouvernants d’israël sont bon avec leurs ennemis. Il deviennent des bourreaux pour leur peuple.

  4. לחפש מתחת לריצפה!!!!

  5. and these are suppose to want peace pray for the peace of Jerusalem Shalom

  6. Doesn’t everyone have a stash like this?

  7. Imagine that. The people who want to destroy Isreal are planning on using violent weapons to do it……

  8. Thank you for sharing the real news with us, Lori!

  9. Collective punishment? That’s all Jews have ever gotten from Romans, to Roman Christians (all) to Islam. Then we are expected to act as these civilizations never have. There is nothing wrong with wiping out our enemies. Let them say whatever filth they want to espouse as usual.

  10. Continue your good work IDF.

  11. Carol Smith says:

    May God continue to protect His people!

  12. Irene Solnik says:

    IT IS ACCORDING TO THE NRA

  13. Anonymous says:

    A curious amount of American-made weapons. Israel needs to tell the US "No, you will not be arming the Palestinian police forces, because their weapons have a curious habit of disappearing."

  14. Loren Renee says:

    Good job! Keep going. We pray we find the boys, in the process we will leave them drained on arms. They will have to attack us with rubber bands next time.

  16. Gun control is hitting the enemy every time you shoot! Our armed enemy thinks nothing of doing harm to Jews and all non islamics and have said they intend to kill all of us…intent backed by their actions and the use of weapons, whether rocks or bullets, to harm us. It would be truly merciful to put them out of our misery. "They Must Go!"

  17. Helen Talkin says:

    Excellent Work!!!

  18. Beverly Bass says:

    And these are what? instruments of ‘peace’??? for heaven’s sake…people are moaning about what the IDF is doing to find the boys…people who know something…and in doing so, this is what they uncovered & confiscated…now the next step is finding out where they buy the weapons and from whom? Sadly there are many choices when it comes to that.

    Half the time I'm trying to convince myself to come back to this web site. I don't know if its since I "upgraded" to Windows 7 or what. But I have been plagued with problems from sites like Jewish Press and others. I've lost work from the page "refreshing". Comments generally is a pain in the ass. Especially with the Facebook always trying to ADD **** while I type. I HATE Facebook.

  21. David Darko says:

    The IDF should continue the search operation throughout Yudea and sammeria.. There are still more dangerous weapons in their possession.

  22. What they are there to make baby food and snacks for the other kids!?!

  23. No surprise, those are jihad.

  24. Good work all at the IDF but you forgot the stones. Shalom Israel we love you

  25. Doug Logan says:

    Bibi is so weak and an embarrassment. After millions of Jews were murdered for the #1 prize(Israel and Jerusalem), Bibi, Peres, Livni, Barak, etc. can't wait to give it up under pressure from the very countries boycotting Israel and attacking Judaism at its core. Every time Bibi crawls…every time he wants to give it all away… the Islamic Nazis have his and Israel's number. All those times when Israel gave up the Islamic Nazi Child Killers for 'peace', Bibi was/is pathetic and the enemy keeps doing its dirt, while Bibi wants allies who are totally against him and Israel. What a continued disaster. Now Obama is in bed with Iran still building its nukes against Israel. What is it you don't get?

  26. Hit Hamas and keep doing so until they return these children … or they are wiped out
