CoS Eizenkot – IDF Rabbis to Give Graduation Speeches

Saturday, June 20th, 2015

IDF Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot clarified last week that having the head of the Education division and not an IDF rabbi give the graduation speech at the Kotel for a Givati graduation was a one-off event, and not a change in procedure.

Eizenkot made it clear that in future graduation ceremonies, an IDF rabbi would speak after the unit commander, according to a report in Makor Rishon.

There is an ongoing feud between the Education division and the IDF Rabbinate over the educational messages each want to give the soldiers.

Photo of Soldier Wounded by Arab Offers More Proof of ‘Pallywood’

Friday, June 19th, 2015

The saga of Kfir Brigade soldiers hitting a Palestinian Authority rioter is not over. The video’s initial and edited appearance showed a shouting match between the rioter and the soldier, who finally pulled him aside and pinned him to the ground. The Arab continued to struggle, and a solider gave him one swift kick.

The video was a sensation. Here were soldiers beating an innocent Arab whose crime was shouting insults at soldiers and disobeying orders to leave the area.

A longer version of the video was posted yesterday and offered clear proof that the Arab was baiting soldiers and trying to draw them into a fight as media chased after them with their cameras in high gear.

In typical “Pallywood” fashion, they snapped pictures at the “right” time but left out anything that might incriminate the rioters and support claims by the soldiers that the Arab assaulted a soldier and tried to grab a rifle.

The Rotter.net website uploaded on Friday a picture of one of the soldiers whose was wounded in the face by a rock thrown by the same rioter, according to the post.

Israel’s Latest ‘War Crime’ and Human Rights Violation: Uprooting Trees

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Israel uprooted approximately 1,000 almond and olive trees that were planted illegally in a land grab on the western edge of Gush Etzion on Thursday, an action that Arabs are calling a “war crime” and even a human rights violation.”

The office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) stated:

[We] carried out the eviction of an illegal invasion of around 1,000 olive trees planted illegally without permits on state land in Wadi Fukin.

The area is located between the security fence and the Hareidi city of Beitar Illit, west of Efrat.

The Palestinian Authority’s official WAFA website claimed that the land is owned by Arabs.

The London Independent reported:

Palestinians have accused Israel of a war crime after military tractors destroyed around a thousand olive and almond trees belonging to local farmers on the grounds that they were illegally planted on state land….. Three years ago, Israeli authorities posted signs saying that the land belongs to the state, farmers said.

Wasel Abu Yusuf, a member of the executive committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, told the newspaper: This is occupied territory and international humanitarian law and the Geneva Convention apply. This is the land of the Palestinian state and any colonialist settler building or expropriation of land or cutting trees is a war crime against the Palestinian people.

If they are going to claim it is a “war came,” why not go even farther and charge Israel with violating human rights?

That may sound absurd, but read what an unidentified journalist, whom we can assume to be Al Quds correspondent Sayid Erikat, told the State Dept. at yesterday’s daily briefing:

Yesterday the Israelis pulled out something like 1,800 trees in the West Bank; they uprooted trees and so on. I mean, we talked about the commission of inquiry and human rights abuses and so on. Is that something that you would like to see the Israelis stop doing?

State Dept. spokesman John Kirby answered, “I haven’t seen the report on the trees being uprooted. You’re going to have to let me go back and look at that. I just don’t have anything on that.

What is amazing is that there was no laughter from Kirby or fellow journalists.

Palestinian Authority Arabs Hurl Firebomb at Jews at Yosef’s Tomb

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists hurled a firebomb at Yosef’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) Wednesday night as 1,500 Jews were arriving from all over the country for prayers marking the beginning of the month of Tammuz.

The Molotov cocktail hit one of dozens of parked buses that had brought worshippers to the holy site.

No one was injured and no damage was reported, but in subsequent clashes, the IDF shot and wounded two rioters.

Like Kassam rockets that land in “open areas” and rock throwing at Jewish motorists who are not hit, the firebombing attack was reported only on the Hareidi Kikar Shabbat website.

Kever Yosef is one of the holy places specifically designated in the Oslo Accords – remember them? – that guarantees Jewish access. That ended almost 15 years ago when the Israeli government allowed the Palestinian Authority to take over the holy site, which was desecrated dozens of times before someone in the IDF finally listened to Jewish leaders in Samaria and decided that perhaps they have a right to pray there.

This is an old story that is repeated over and over, but it is far more significant today, when Israeli political and religious leaders are fighting each over who can get the biggest headline to condemn the band of Jewish idiots who tried to burn down a church on the shores of Kinneret early Thursday morning.

The condemnation was necessary and not out of proportion. Whenever a Jew desecrates a place of worship, he violates Jewish law and Israeli law and needs to be locked up.

The firebomb at Kever Yosef was not shoved to “news briefs” because of the arson. It simply was not reported at all.

This just shows how much the world expect Jews to behave as God told them to behave and how much the world accepts Arab intolerance as a fact of life, which it is.

Media Panic over Rocket Alarm in Golan Heights

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

A rocket siren sounded in the Golan Heights shortly before noon Wednesday, sending Israeli media into a panic while Golan residents continued their lives normally, except those towns were the siren specifically went off.

No rocket or missile fell in Israel.

Golan resident “Alex” told Reshet Bet (Voice of Israel):

 I don’t know what you are talking about. We did not receive any order from the IDF to stop working.

The IDF is checking to discover why the rocket siren sounded.

It must be a slow news week for Israel’s establishment media, looking for a way to frighten citizens.

Yesterday, the IDF declared a tiny part of northeast Golan Heights to be a “closed military zone” because of the fierce fighting across the border.

The closure might have been related to a planned Druze protest against the murder of their brethren in Syria.

Two hours later, after the media – not The Jewish Press, by the way – ran screaming headlines, anticipating all-out war between the IDF and the Islamic State (ISIS), or Hezbollah, or Assad’s army, or perhaps Al Qaeda.

Rockets from Syria have exploded on the Israeli side of the Golan too many times. We have no intention of belittling the fragile quiet on the Israeli side of the border, but let’s keep it in proportion.

Hit-and-Run Palestinian Authority Terrorist Arrested

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Cleared for release: The IDF, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israeli Police arrested Palestinian Authority Mohammed Yosuf Arfaya. for running over pedestrians at the Alon Shvut junction last month.

Three people were injured, and Arfaya escaped. He later was caught and initially claimed it was accident. Under questioning, he admitted to intentionally targeting Israeli civilians.

Arfaya also confessed to have previously attempted executing several terror attacks, all of them unsuccessful. An indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria charging him with the terrorist attack at Alon Shvut.

The terror attack that Arfaya executed is an example of “lone wolf” attacks. There have been many similar attacks over recent months, in which a singular attacker was involved and claimed credit.

In the upcoming days, an indictment will be submitted to the military court in Judea and Samaria incriminating Arfaya for the terror attack.
