IDF Soldiers Humiliated by Arab Rioters: We Are Sitting Ducks

You must read the IDF Spokesperson's response, it is a doozy!

Sergeant Y., 33, an infantry reservist, originally from France, was injured from rock throwing in Nebi Salach this winter. “I’m lying down and above me they’re throwing rocks. Not tennis ball-size rocks, cinder blocks, cement blocks, ceramic tiles – they each weigh as much as 50 lbs. And no one is responding. My buddies are saying, ‘We asked for permission.’ And I’m waiting -–and nothing happens.”

The IDF Spokesperson’s Office’s response reads like something written by a team of legal and psychological experts: “The IDF forces in Judea and Samaria are challenged daily by a complex reality requiring professionalism and determination together with judgment. The rules of engagement in Judea and Samaria facilitate an appropriate range of responses to a wide variety of threats faced by IDF forces and they are tested occasionally according to evaluations. It must be stressed that taking immediate action against violators of the public order and popular terror activists does not negate determined and effective action, and at its root lies the understanding that as small a number of injured as possible would help guard the security stability in the region.”

“Popular terror activists?”

These people are sick, honestly, they need help.

Minister of Industry and Commerce and Chairman of the Jewish Home party Naftali Bennett last week criticized the military and called to change the rules of engagement.

“The IDF must change the practices of engagement, to allow IDF fighters and citizens to protect themselves,” Bennett wrote on his Facebook page. “The IDF must allocate more forces and act more deeply if needed,” Bennett added. “I will work very hard to restore security to the residents of Judea and Samaria. Before it’s too late.”

It may require more than Facebook, though.

    why be there if they can't react to the thugs? The only thing these vermin understand is force. A couple of good beatings should rectify the situation. If the IDF policy is do nothing, then they shouldn't be there.

  3. The military implements the orders of the political leadership – so the question remains, who has ordered this insane response to terrorist provocations? Investigate, follow the trail up the chain of command to find the responsible party…and then fire his/her sorry butt. Surely someone has the cojones to do this.

  4. Sounds like the IDF soldiers are taking over for the UN as punching bags. I've been in that kind of position myself back in 1981 and it's not fun. It's irrational to order your men into position only to have them unarmed and in an easily attacked place. Wars are raging all over the world today just as the Bible stated that they would in the end times. Iran continues unwavering on it’s march in the development of nuclear weapons and Assad the dictator of Syria is still in power. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran will get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Assad of Syria looks like he may be willing to use weapons of mass destruction against his own people and against near by nations as well. If this situation does not drastically change soon for the better, I believe the war in Isaiah Chapter 17 will likely take place. Damascus Syria would be destroyed. The worlds economy would likely collapse as a result and could usher in a one world government movement. I wrote a small 6 page book that outlines what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next.

    Israel is heading for its own civil war if they allow conditions like this one to hamper its military. I cannot imagine a policeman in the USA taking this much abuse and just stands by. Only in Israel does this happen. It is wrong, and Israel had better waken up or its people will clean house and it will not look pretty.

  6. What kind of a madness is this? that our IDF. had to be subjected to beating, and humiliation from PA. rioters? It's inconveivable that they R not given the freedom to defend themselves, "stand down" and "restraint" R Obama's policies no ours, or R we trying to win the hearts and minds of PA. terrorists? we have been there and we have done that, didn't work so I hope this photo should be a teachable moment for lawmakers.

    time for new, real government that is actually willing to protect its soldiers and civilians, just a matter of time before its to late.

    Guys do what you need to do.
    God is with you.
    Not BIBI

  8. If our lawmakers trying to change the false image of the IDF. that has been portraying by biased media? that is a bad way of doing it they R our heros and you make them look small.

    Muslims understand only force. They do not understand mercy. They do not understand compromise.

  10. People under siege end up blaming themselves of their enemies hatred and delude themselves about the malicious intentions of their foes.
    Leave it to the Jews to behave in their own country as if they are unwanted guests.
    For the first time in history, the squatters on the land dictate to the owner of the land tenancy terms.
    After you read the article, you may be as outraged as I am.
    Please contact all those you know in Israel and tell them to demand of the Government there to tell the army to act like an army. Israeli soldiers must end being "victims" and footballs for Arab rioters.
    They must be able to defend themselves with all means available to them.
    And Islamic rage for all occasion must end, or oust them.
    How can a self-respecting sovereign country expects its defenders to act like wienies when confronted, daily, with Islamic rage?

  12. I feel ashamed every time I read about one other riot by boulder tossing Arabs and when I see pictures of IDF soldiers, seemingly standing around because they have orders not to enforce laws to protect Israelis. I am also enraged.
    At this moment I am ready to burst a gut out of frustration. Here is how Israel can stop this shame and quickly:
    1. Issue a proclamation to the Arabs, whether they live in Arab controlled territory or Israel proper, stating, without exception, that if they participate in a disorderly function, threatening the order and lives of Israeli or Arabs, they will be arrested, and automatically imprisoned, with no trial, for a period of 12 months so they have the time to contemplated the NEXT punishment.
    2. If they are arrested for a second time and found guilty, they and their entire family will be deported to Gaza without any possibility of returning to Israel.
    It is my opinion that instant quiet would occur. Protest from the UN, EU, Russia and everywhere in Muslim controlled countries would howl like banshee, but who cares. Israel would be quieter and Israelis safer.

  15. I totally agree with you. A good beating and they will think twice before they attack again.
