IDF Shoots, Kills Molotov Cocktail Throwing Terrorist

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

A teenage terrorist was shot and killed at 8:35 PM Israel time at Al-Ram village in Judea and Samaria, after throwing a Molotov cocktail at IDF soldiers, Arab media reported.

No soldier was harmed.

According to Ma’an, a 12-year-old Arab was killed Tuesday evening during clashes with Israeli soldiers in the town of Al-Ram north of Jerusalem. The teen, who was pronounced dead on arrival at the Palestine Medical Center, was identified by the Palestinian Ministry of Health as 12-year-old Muhye Muhammad Sidqi al-Tabbakhi.

Clashes erupted after Israeli forces raided the town of Al-Ram in response to a gang of Arab youths who threw rocks and empty bottles at Israeli soldiers who then responded by shooting live fire, rubber-coated steel bullets, and tear gas bombs, Ma’an reported.

Mass Turnout at Funeral of IDF Lone Soldier Shlomo Rindenow, z’l

Tuesday, July 19th, 2016

by Tzvi Lev / TPS Hundreds of mourners thronged the funeral of IDF Sergeant Shlomo Rindenow, a lone soldier from New Jersey who died in an accident involving a grenade at his base in the Golan Heights on Sunday.

“Today is a day of mourning for us, for the family, for the army, and for the entire Jewish people everywhere,” said his brother, Jeff Rindenow, at the funeral service.

Rindenow, 20, from New Jersey and First Sergeant Husam Tafesh, 24, from Beit Jan, were killed when Tafesh’s grenade accidentally exploded. Three other soldiers were wounded in the blast, with one remaining in serious condition. It is still unclear why the grenade detonated, and the IDF is investigating the incident.

The service was held at the synagogue in Netzer Hazani, where Shlomo Rindenow’s brother resides. Shlomo Rindenow lived in Kibbutz Sde Yoav.

Rindenow was the fifth of his brothers to volunteer in the IDF as a lone soldier, a term used in Israel to describe those serving without any family in Israel, and his death has shaken the lone soldier community.

“It’s devastating,” said Mordy Botnick, founder of the lone-soldier-support organization Chayal El Chayal. “It has been happening way too much. Five lone soldiers have died in the past two years alone.”

Botnick was referring to lone soldiers Sean Carmeli, Max Steinberg, and Jordan Ben Simon, who were killed fighting in Operation Protective Edge in 2014. Another soldier, David Gordon, died soon after.

Rindenow was remembered by friends and family as someone who was always smiling and never stopped trying to help others. “Prior to enlistment, Shlomo worked as a dog handler for a search-and-rescue unit. He always wanted to assist others.”

Arabs Continue Attempt to Dislodge Jews from Jerusalem

Monday, July 18th, 2016

Arab terrorists were busy Monday night attacking Jewish residents of Jerusalem in their attempts to frighten Israelis into leaving the area or avoiding it in the first place.

Thus far, the effort has failed, though some Arabs are continuing their violence nevertheless.

Terrorists Monday night hurled three firebombs at Jewish homes in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ma’ale Zeitim, known in Arabic as Ras el Amud.

The neighborhood overlooks the Mount of Olives and has been the scene of numerous attacks by Arab terrorists who have tried to dislodge the growing number of Jewish residents moving into the area.

A storekeeper was stabbed on Rehov Malachi in Jerusalem, local sources reported Monday night. He was treated at the scene and then taken to a hospital in the capital where he is reportedly listed in good condition.

Less than an hour later, several Arab terrorists attacked an IDF “pillbox” outpost at the entrance to the Jewish community of Kochav Yaacov, just a few minutes north of Jerusalem.

The terrorists opened fire and launched firecrackers at the military position, some of which ignited a blaze next to a group of soldiers guarding the outpost, and caused a power outage.

The soldiers extinguished the flames. Miraculously no one was injured and no property damage was reported.

IDF Sgt. Shlomo Rindenow, z’l, 20, of Kibbutz Yoav, From Passaic, NJ

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

An American-born IDF lone soldier whose family lives in New Jersey spent his first year in Israel helping other people before he enlisted a year ago in the military. He died Sunday morning in a freak accident on the Golan Heights near Mount Hermon.

IDF Sergeant Shlomo Ridenow, z’l, was one of five brothers who moved to Israel to enlist in combat. He came from Passaic, New Jersey two years ago.

The 20-year-old was just two months shy of his 21st birthday; he lived in Kibbutz Sde Yoav, and served for a year in a civilian canine unit in Kfar Tapuach before enlisting in the Israeli army.

He and his rescue dog worked as a member of the search and rescue unit to find missing persons, the Hebrew-language Rotter.net website reported.

A second brother serves in an IDF paratrooper unit.

“He was always in love with Israel,” his older sister Yocheved told reporters. “He didn’t know Hebrew, because he didn’t grow up here. She he came here, he taught himself Hebrew and he joined the unit that he was really passionate about.”

Rindenow was killed when the grenade held by 24 year old Sgt. First Class Hussam Tafesh (res) blew up in his hands. Tafesh, a member of the Druze community, lived in the northern Israeli village of Beit Jann.

Three other soldiers were injured in the blast which occurred on Mount Hermon in the Golan Heights, near the Druze village of Majdal Shams.

Rindenow and Tafesh were members of the 601 Assaf Battalion of the Combat Engineering Corps. The three wounded soldiers are members of the 401st Artillery Brigade. The investigation into the accident is being headed by an officer at the rank of colonel.

Defining the Problem

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

I spent the last 3 weeks in the US and Canada on a speaking and fundraising tour for Standing Together 24/7 IDF and realized Israel, America, Canada and the entire world are in the same predicament when it comes to fighting terrorism. It seems all our governments are having a hard time defining right and wrong. It seems our countries and many of our people have given up on the idea that we are the good guys.

A month or so ago an Islamic terrorist pledged alliance to the Islamic State and murdered 50 people in a gay bar in Orlando.

It was like there was contest on who can better deflect the fact that this was a radical Islamic terrorist attack! Some immediately called the attack a homophobic attack while others were screaming about gun control. The President seemed to be flexing his executive muscles in order not to say three simple words; RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM

Some tried what I call the ’emotional escape’ and said, ‘what difference does it make! People died and I should be more sensitive.’ It is actually those who refuse to clearly define the Orlando attack as a radical Islamic terrorist attack who are being insensitive and cruel. Those who were murdered can no longer be helped, but to ignore the ideology that brought about the attack is cruelty to future victims.

Is there a gun control problem in America? Absolutely! How else do you explain how a guy who was investigated by the FBI TWICE for his radical Islamic views was still able to attain a gun legally.

Why was he able to attain a gun legally? Because, although the FBI saw red flags waving all over the place, they did not have anything incriminating and did not want to offend the terrorists “religious” beliefs by suspecting his radical views were actually dangerous. The wouldn’t want to offend him!

The liberal way is to defend the rights of all people except those that are actually being threatened by the people liberals are defending and if you dare point out the radical religious views and call them dangerous….you’re a racist!

Yes, there is a gun control problem in the U.S.A, but that is not what murdered the victims in Orlando. The radical Islamic terrorist did not murder people because he had a gun, he had a gun because he was looking to murder people! Read that again and internalize it!

What’s the difference?

Well, if Orlando is a result of a gun problem, is a 17 year old Muslim terrorist who broke into a Jewish home in Hebron and stabbed a sleeping 13 year old Jewish girl 35 times (!!!!) a knife control problem? Was the Boston bombing a pressure cooker problem? The terrorist in France a truck control problem?

Don’t people understand that by calling this a gun problem they are exonerating the perpetrators themselves! Would any of those gun-control people say in 1942 there was a gas problem in Germany? It’s ridiculous!

When it comes to Israel, we are seeing the same inability to define the actual base of the conflict. Many claim this conflict is about land. The fact of the matter is there was a time when all the “disputed” land was already in Arab control.

Between 1948-1967 the entire WB including Jerusalem, the entire Gaza strip and the Golan heights were in Arab control, was there peace? Anyone with any historic integrity should be able to admit that this conflict has nothing to do with the land. Radical Islamic terrorists were murdering Jews long before there were settlements or even a State of Israel. Just ask the Jews of Hebron in 1929 or those who attended the meeting between the Muslim Mufti of Jerusalem and Hitler in 1942!

Those that advocate a Two-State solution are actually strengthening the radical Arab (Mostly radical Muslim) narrative that was created in order to disguise their blind hatred for Jews and the Jewish country with a fabricated historic and political claim. There was no conquering or occupation of Palestine from the Arabs! Can we please stop making believe it happened and can we please stop making believe the solution will come as a result of our adopting a false historical national claim called Palestine! Not only will masquerading the real issue not stop terrorism, it will strengthen it!

Before discussing a solution one has to ask themselves what is the real cause of the problem. Why have Arab countries attacked Israel time and time again? Why did Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and some of their friends attack Israel in 48?

Was it because they were missing land in their countries?

Have you see a map of the Middle East lately!

Why did Nasser call for Israel’s destruction in 1966? Was it because of settlements that did not exist yet?

Why did Arafat start a terrorist organization called the PLO in 1964 with the soul purpose of destroying Israel when there were no settlements or “occupation”? (1964 was 3 years before the Six Day war and before the settlement block existed! The Arabs were under Arab control)

Israel left Gaza completely in 2005 with no demands from the Arabs, did it bring peace? Why did the Arab population democratically vote for a terrorist organization with a clear call to murder Jews? Was it because they wanted Gaza to be free?

When you answer these 5 questions, you will understand what is the source of the conflict and what it is not.

Jerusalem an Arab capital? Really! When was Jerusalem ever an Arab capital or even an important city before the Jews came home? Do I know what the solution is?

The real question is, do you know what the problem is!

So why is the world and some Israelis so blind to this obvious reality? Why can’t Obama say the words radical Islamic terrorism? It’s not really about offending someone and whether you think Obama is a Muslim or not is totally irrelevant. The real issue is the belief in a fantasy word where everything can be solved with diplomacy. See, if Obama would call it radical Islamic terrorism, there would be no diplomatic solution. He knows as well as anyone else that the solution to a terrorist is a bullet.

Calling it a gun control problem basically throws the blame on all of us instead of on the terrorist and makes believe if we just work harder Orlando will not happen again.

Israeli leaders have been apologizing and bending over backwards in order to make offers to those who want us destroyed. Don’t you dare call it a radical Islamic terror problem because that would make the Two State solution as immoral as the Munich agreement that Chamberlain signed with Hitler.

Don’t you dare admit this is a religious war because that would make you a racist! It doesn’t matter that the only people blowing up buses, shooting fathers in front of their family, stabbing little Jewish girls in their sleep and firing rockets at Israel are 100% of the time radical ISLAMIC terrorists!

Forget all those facts. Take a big gulp of the Kool-aid and a puff of the peace drug and make believe all the terrorists want is a small sliver of Israel and they will stop murdering Jews Oh, and while you are apologizing for a crime Israel did not commit, make sure to uphold real apartheid by not allowing Jews to pray on the Temple Mount which is being occupied by radical Islamic terror supporters. We wouldn’t want to God forbid offend them and their beliefs and allow actual freedom of religion! That would have the UN condemning us and calling us racist…. Anyone else see the irony here?

What’s my solution? Let’s say I don’t have one. Does that mean we should adopt one that is historical, national and religious suicide? Doctors don’t know what to do, so they start cutting off limbs?

DEFINE THE PROBLEM!

Solution to radical Islamic terrorism?

A bullet!

Solution to a fabrication of history called Palestine used in order to justify starting wars with Israel and murdering Jews?

FIGHT!

Those who support the Palestine Arab narrative are either completely ignorant or intentionally aiding and abetting terrorism! No room for diplomacy there and it’s not because I want war, it’s because they do!

What’s the solution? Let’s start by reminding ourselves that we are the good guys. The fact that the Arabs lost the wars they started does not make them victims, it makes them losers and maybe they should get the hint. #AllahIsAZionist.

Those Arabs who want to live in peace in Israel as a Jewish State? Welcome! Those who want a new State called Palestine on land they think was an Arab country called Palestine?

1. Learn history!

2. Jordan sits on 70+% of British Palestine and has a majority of 73% Arabs who call themselves Palestinians. Make Jordan Palestine!

I love when people hear that they call me unrealistic or say the Jordanians would not agree.

Let me get this straight. Hashemites who have absolutely no connection to this land and who came from Mecca and took over the area of Trans-Jordan don’t want to give the area to Arabs who call themselves Palestinians is an acceptable excuse but it is ok to demand of Jews who have a long history to give up land to those who advocate the destruction of Israel?

You think it is realistic that Israel, which is smaller than New Jersey, split up more of its land to hand it over to those who seek to destroy it but it is unrealistic to demand the Hashemites from Jordan, which is hundreds of times bugger than Israel, give up land to their own brothers? ENOUGH!

Realistic? The ‘peace’ camp gave guns to Yasser Arafat and the world awarded that terrorist the Nobel Peace Prize!

Don’t tell me about being realistic!

No more risk taking, no more concessions to those who start wars and justify terror! Israel is ours by right and it’s time we stop making believe we are the bad guys!

Three choices for our enemies:
1. Leave

2. Fight

3. Accept Israel as the Jewish homeland and live happily.

UPDATE – Patriot Missiles Launched at Drone Over Golan Heights

Sunday, July 17th, 2016

Two Patriot missiles were launched at a drone that penetrated Israeli territory in the central Golan Heights from Syria.

Despite the initial assessment that the missiles hit their target, it turns out that both missiles missed the drone, and it flew back into Syrian airspace.

Fragments of the Patriot missile landed near Kibbutz Ayelet Hashachar, starting a fire, and hitting a 14-year-old girl.

The event was preceded with alert sirens in the Golan Heights and in Tsfat at 5:04 PM.
