The Secretive Casualties of War

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

During the recent Opration Pillar of Defense An Israeli 35-year-old man told his wife that he had been recalled to the reserves, said good bye to her and to their children and headed south – not to the Gaza border, but, instead, to the hotel Le Meridien in Eilat, to celebrate his unexpected freedom with his mistress, the daily Yediot Aharonoth reported Thursday.

The mistress called the wife from the road, pretending to be an IDF official, and informed her that her husband had been drafted and sent to the border.

As luck would have it, the husband, who took his wife’s car to save on gas fuel, made one mistake: he parked his car in front of the hotel garbage cans. A sanitation truck driver who came the next morning to pick up the garbage called the number listed on the car bumper, obtained the woman’s cell number and called her. After a short conversation, the woman realized that her husband was engaged in an entirely non-militaristic activity.

The woman hired a team detectives documented the husband’s southern adventure, and she is planning to sue foe divorce this morning. Last night, unaware that his life as he knew it was over, the husband called to tell his wife about the rough time he was having away from her, in the army.

True story – because I saw it in Yedioth.

I Love the Smell of Missiles in the Morning

Tuesday, November 20th, 2012

Some people like the smell of napalm in the morning, but I love the smell of missiles. If you can smell the exhaust and explosion of Jihad rockets in Israel, it means we’re bombing the hell out of them in Gaza. Not enough to suit my tastes, mind you, but they’re getting a taste of their own medicine, that’s for sure. Unfortunately our government is run by a bunch of leftists who don’t believe that Gaza is ours, so they’re giving our air force pussycat orders so they don’t upset the goyim in Washington, Paris, and London. If the Orthodox Jews of America would have made aliyah already, we would have a religious Minister of Defense by now, and Gaza City would no longer exist, like in the days of Joshua Ben Nun and King David.

If all of the 7-8 million Jews hiding out in the Diaspora would have made aliyah, the Arabs would have picked up their skirts and fled from Israel long ago. Why aren’t there brigades from Boro Park, Williamsburg, Crown Heights, Lakewood, Monsey, Englewood, and the Five Towns, fighting alongside the brigades of Golani, Givati, Tzanchanim, Kfir, Nachal, and Nachal Haredi, poised on the border of Gaza. Isn’t Israel their country too? Isn’t it their Homeland as well as ours? What halachic exemption have they fabricated for themselves to watch this Milchemet Mitzvah on TV in their comfortable living rooms while they chomp on bagels and lox? Are they less Jewish than Israelis? No way. This is their country too.

In fact, now is the time for aliyah more than ever! That’s right. Just like I’m singing in the rain of missiles, you can too! Is the Torah putting on tefillin for 5 minutes in the morning, rushing off to a $500,000 a year job talking stocks on the telephone, going out to the best kosher lunch in the city, then catching the new Woody Allen movie or a Knick game become going home to get stoned in front of the wall-size plasma TV? Is that what Judaism is all about? Now’s the time to make aliyah. Not when everything is quiet and Nefesh B’Nefesh is offering $100,000 per oleh to encourage Aliyah. Believe me, if all of the Diaspora Draft Dodgers were here where they belong, the Arabs would have left for Saudi Arabia a decade ago and Israel would already be the spiritual and material haven it is destined to be. Is it fair that we are at war when you are sitting comfortably on your couches in your cyberspace bubbles? Tell me the truth. Is it fair? Are you any less Jewish than we are?

And while we’re mentioning names, we should take Shimon Peres up in an airplane, give him a parachute, and drop him out over Gaza. Let him make peace with them. This is his war. He got us into this by giving them Gaza at Oslo. And there is a long list of others who deserve parachutes too for turning the area into a terrorist wonderland. When the smoke clears from this present operation, a war crimes tribunal should be formed to bring all the architects of Oslo to justice.

In the meantime, to our soldiers – go get them boys! Bomb the hell out of them! Remember the good old American way in Vietnam! Remember the orders Uncle Sam gave to his troops: “Kill anything that moves!” Geronimo!

Arab Mob Threatening Jews inside Rachel’s Tomb following a Day of Riots in Judea and Samaria

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Tazpit News reports that for the past two hours an Arab mob has been rioting outside Rachel’s Tomb in Betlehem.

The Judea and Samaria rescue center reported that near the community of Efrat in Gush Etzion two Jews were lightly injured by shrapnel when Arabs threw stones at vehicles and one used vehicle was shattered.

Between Beit El and Ofra Arabs blocked route 60 and damaged Jewish owned vehicles. Ariel Koren, whose vehicle was attacked, told the Jewish Voice that he was barely able to escape.

“Dozens of Arabs and leftist anarchists with cameras and flags blocked the road and began to throw stones at my car and beat on it with the poles of their flags,” Koren relayed. “I pressed the gas pedal and managed to pass through, but they smashed the left windshield and broke a mirror.”

A Jewish female motorist driving behind Koren was also attacked with stones.

Hundreds of Arabs marched earlier in the Samaria village of Hawara, armed with flags and drums, in an event that had been approved and secured by the IDF.

The Judea and Samaria rescue center reported this morning that Arabs threw stones at a military post in Beit Omer in Gush Etzion, near the Arab town of Tekoa. dozens of Arabs gathered and threw stones at Jewish owned vehicles, and at the Ne’alim checkpoint hundred of Arabs who arrived in buses rioted and threw stones at the soldiers.

The news agency Ma’an reported other places where protests took place, including Qalqiliya, Jaba village, Halhul, near Ateret, Turmus Iya and in Hebron, where hundreds of Arabs march toward the settlement of Beit Haggai. The Judea and Samaria rescue center reported that IDF forces blocked them at the Al Puwar junction, but meanwhile the same troops blocked the road to Jews.

Arutz 7 reported that Israeli Defense Forces finally managed to restore calm to the area and permit access the site.
