Hamas Videos Taunt Israelis with Fake ‘Birthday’ of Fallen IDF Soldier [video]

Sunday, January 1st, 2017

Hamas’ terror group Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades on Saturday published two videos mocking the memory of IDF soldier Oron Shaul with a “celebration” of his 23rd birthday. Oron Shaul was killed in a clash with Hamas during the 2014 Israel–Gaza war, and Hamas announced that he had been taken prisoner, demanding massive prisoner releases in return for his body.

According to The Independent, the claim that an Israeli soldier had been captured “touched off celebrations among Palestinians in both Gaza and the West Bank.” The same publication ran images of an Arab mob cheering in the streets of Ramallah.


The first Hamas video shows a cake sitting on a table that reads in Hebrew: “Oron, three years in Hamas captivity.” Then, the phrase “A new year comes while Shaul is away from home” appears on the screen in both Arabic and Hebrew.


The second video shows the face of Shaul digitally imposed over an actor bound to a chair with a birthday cake set on a table in front of him, adorned with three candles symbolizing the soldier’s “time in captivity.”

As the soldier tries free himself from the ropes, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, dressed as a clown, steps into the room through a darkened door and blows out the candles.

The video ends with the phrase: “The decision is in the hands of the Israeli government.”

Good to know the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades have something to keep them busy in their tunnels during the cold winter nights.

‘Jewish Family Who Stole Xmas’ Didn’t Steal, Didn’t Flee, It Was All Fake

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

If you happened to be shocked by a story that first appeared Thursday in Lancaster Online with the tabloidish headline “Jewish family leaves Lancaster County in fear after being blamed for cancellation of Hempfield elementary Christmas play,” and in Penn Live with the headline “Jewish family fears for safety after school cancels ‘A Christmas Carol’ show,” you can relax – it didn’t happen.

It began with a reporter for Lancaster Online who spoke with the Jewish family in question and wrote that their child had been “harassed by classmates” since the cancellation of A Christmas Carol in November, and that they had left the county out of concern.

What was their concern?

Fox News called it “SCROOGE! Grade school cancels performance of ‘A Christmas Carol’” and reported that “Parents told local reporters the play was canceled because two parents complained about a line in the Charles Dickens holiday classic.” The allegedly offensive line? Tiny Tim’s “God bless us, every one.”

Yes, Virginia, there are no facts in our world any more, which means there could well be a Santa Claus.

Principal Tom Kramer, trying to respond to the pre-pogrom headlines, posted an announcement where he noted that “Our decision is rooted in the desire to be respectful of the many cultural and religious backgrounds represented by the students attending Centerville Elementary.”

To which Fox News responded: “That’s a mighty big clue, folks. In order to be tolerant and diverse, public schools have to eradicate any mention of God.”

It didn’t help that the Hempfield School District announced in a carefully crafted Q&A on the story: “Was it a complaint about the line ‘God bless us, every one!’ that prompted reassessment of the play? Absolutely not.” Because it required reading and fact checking, and who has time for all that truthy nonsense.

The same school district also stated: “Was there a religious issue in the complaint? There was no complaint. Questions were asked about play processes and procedures. The decision had nothing to do with a religious concern; rather, the decision was made due to the amount of instructional time that this non-curricular activity had grown to require.”

Again, who cares about the facts?

ADL issued a clarifying press release about the numerous local and national news stories reporting on a Jewish family who “fled” Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, fearing retribution after being wrongfully blamed for the cancellation of the school production of A Christmas Carol, saying it investigated, and found that “in actuality, the family left on vacation for winter break.”

“News reports alleging that a Jewish family has ‘fled’ Lancaster County are untrue and damaging,” said Nancy Baron-Baer, ADL Regional Director. “We spoke with the family, who explained that they went on a previously planned vacation for the holidays. Stories like this can sow fear in the Jewish community and beyond, and it is important to stop the spread of misinformation.”

“There is no truth to the rumor that the school cancelled A Christmas Carol at the request of parents. The Hempfield School District released a FAQ clearly stating that the play was cancelled due to the inordinate amount of class time taken up by rehearsals. We commend the district for setting the record straight.”

Mari A. Schaefer, of Philly.com, reminded her readers that “on Dec. 5, Edgar M. Welch of Salisbury, N.C, was arrested after he fired an assault rifle in a pizza restaurant in northwest Washington D.C. after reading a fake-news story that said suggested Hillary Clinton was running a child sex ring out of the location.”

Will the next pogrom be the result of a viral tweet, YouTube clip or a Facebook post? Ask Virginia.

Fake Bomb Next to Har Nof Shul

Tuesday, September 20th, 2016

Police sappers on Monday checked what looked like an explosive device that had been planted at the entrance to the Yehave Da’at synagogue in Har Nof, where a terrorist attack took the lives of four worshipers and a policeman.

The suspicious package was a cardboard box with wires sticking out of it, which was stashed in a bag.

Police are looking for the perpetrator of this vile prank.

Rightwing Watchdog Urging Action on Fake Arab Settlement Susya [video]

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

Israeli legal watchdog Regavim has appealed to its supporters in Israel and abroad to write to Prime Minister Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman to take action against the illegal squatter camp in Susya. The call comes one day after the Israeli Supreme Court has given government a two-day extension on the deadline to deal with the issue through legal means.

There has been immense public pressure on the Netanyahu government by the US State Department, the European Union and dozens of anti-Israel NGOs, to halt the legal process of evicting the illegal Arab squatters who only arrived in Susya over the past few years. The Arabs’ assortment of lean-tos and tents borders on a legal Jewish community that was established by the government in 1986. Should Israel permit this illegal outpost to remain, in Area C of Judea and Samaria which was designated for Jewish settlements, more camps like it will soon dot the landscape everywhere inside the Jewish area of the “disputed territories,” enhancing the Arab side of the dispute.

Regavim released a video call-to-action in which the organization’s International Director Josh Hasten called on supporters to rally around the government as they deliberate on the fate of the squatters’ camp. Explaining the importance of the Susya case, Hasten says the Arab squatters “have set-up shop deliberately on an ancient Jewish town that existed 1,500 years ago — this is a litmus test to see if the government of Israel is willing to uphold the laws of the land.”

Hasten urges viewers to “get involved, let the Prime Minister know that the State of Israel and people of Israel are behind him and we are here to strengthen him in making this decision which is necessary to uphold the laws of the land.”

Erdogan Wouldn’t Let Elders Of Zion Plan His Fake Coup

Thursday, July 21st, 2016

{Originally posted to the satirical website, PreOccupied Territory}

Ankara, July 18 – Frustrated members of the shadowy Jewish conspiracy that runs the world admitted today that they took a back seat to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in planning the false-flag attempt to depose him over the weekend.

Insiders among the Elders of Zion told reporters today that while Erdoğan, at his own insistence, successfully planned and managed the operation to make it seem a coup was taking place, and then exploited those developments to seize even tighter control of the country than before, his handling of the execution betrayed the hand of a relative amateur, compared to the elegant, seamless way in which Conspiracy activities through the generations have been orchestrated.

Elders pointed to the clumsiness with which certain important details of the would-be coup attempt were cobbled together. “Many of the soldiers taking part had no idea they were conducting anything more than an exercise,” noted H, a member of the Supreme Council of Elders, which gave final, if reluctant, approval for Erdoğan to handle the ruse himself. “For a coup to be believable, you need the armed forces to be behind it, not just a few units with some others along for the ride.”

H also noted the obvious way in which the president swooped in immediately after the coup was suppressed with ready lists of officials, commanders, and government or media figures to arrest or silence over their alleged involvement. “Erdoğan didn’t even maintain a pretense of investigations into who was behind the coup. The whole thing came off looking like a grade-school student trying to cover up some unexcused absences. It’s embarrassing to see.”

Other Elders confirmed that Erdoğan would no longer be allowed to handle such fateful operations with nearly as much autonomy anymore, if at all. “In fact we’re considering pulling in the reins on a whole bunch of activities that until now have been managed by proxies, given the sloppiness of this fiasco,” said L, also of the Supreme Council. “We might have to take a more hands-on role in the South China Sea, for example. Not that [President of China] Xi [Jinping] has been anything less than reliable, but I’m sure he’ll understand that at least for the foreseeable future, we can’t run the risk of such poor handling of our plans recurring – and in a much more strategically significant place than some backwater such as Turkey.”

In terms of China specifically, allowed L, there could eventually be more leeway for the local leadership to take initiative, as a mass conversion to Judaism is already on the table in Beijing to help the country better navigate international banking.

Shiloh Musings: Did Buji Fall for a “Fake” by Bibi?

Monday, May 23rd, 2016

My son plays and coaches tackle football. One of his good friends and teammates was interviewed not long ago about football and when asked about the “brutality” of the game, he acted offended and said that he looks at the game as an intellectual game, just like chess… I’m pretty sure that Prime Minister Binyamin “Bibi” Netanyahu and the incoming Minister of Defense Avigdor “Yvette” Lieberman are chess players. I wonder if they also like American Football, because it seems to me that they pulled one of those “Trick” football plays.

While Isaac “Buji” Herzog and Bibi were busy discussing the issues and negotiating how to bring Herzog’s Zionist Movement into the coalition, and all eyes and pundit were on them, suddenly Lieberman ran with the ball for a touchdown! And he managed to knock Bogie Ya’alon off of the field without losing speed for even a second. 

LAHAV HARKOV wrote a great opinion piece in the Jerusalem Post comparing Buji to the hapless Charlie Brown who always falls for such tricks.
