Picture: Soldiers Bleeding Themselves in Protest of Azaria Verdict

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017

Hatzel (Heb: The Shadow), a rightwing bad boy rap artist a.k.a. Yoav Eliasi, 38, posted on his Facebook page a picture of four soldiers (so he claims) who bleed themselves over a note saying: “To the Court System! You are killing us on the inside!!!” with the dates Tevet 6, 5777, and Jan. 4, 2017.

A Military panel on Wednesday convicted IDF Sgt. Elor Azaria of manslaughter in the shooting death of an Arab terrorist who had been neutralized after stabbing an IDF soldier in the back in Hebron on Purim day, 2016. The terrorist’s partner had already been killed.

Hundreds of protesters confronted police outside the court session, some of whom cried slogans accusing the court of picking up the knife from the ground and returning it to the terrorists.

In July 2014, Hatzel led a rightwing confrontation with Israeli leftwing protesters during Operation Protective Edge against the Hamas government of Gaza. Ha’aretz described him at the time as “the dangerous product of incessant incitement by extreme rightwing elements.”

In August 2016 Hatzel enrolled as member of the Likud party.


Demonstrators in NYC to Demand: ‘Defund The UN’

Tuesday, December 27th, 2016

A flyer is making its way around the internet, calling on demonstrators to show up at 12 noon on Wednesday, Dec. 28 at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, 799 UN Plaza, First Avenue between 44th and 45th Streets in New York City to call on the U.S. government to defund the United Nations in response to last week’s vote against Israel at the UN Security Council.

“As we begin the joyous festivities of Chanukah, we find ourselves beset with angst over the colossal betrayal of Israel by the Obama administration at Friday’s United Nations Security Council,” writes organizer David Hooreen in the Jewish Voice.

Demonstrators are urged to gather to “send a clarion call to the United States government to defund the morally bankrupt and highly tendentious United Nations.”

“Because we are cognizant of the fact that this resolution will become fodder in the obsessive crusade by the international community to create a terror-driven Palestinian state in Israel’s backyard, thereby jeopardizing its security, we have taken initiatives of our own to counter these nefarious agendas and we ask that you play an important role in them,” the notice continues.

“Make your voice heard and stand with those who support the timeless values of decency, democracy and equality as we show a united front for Israel and America.”

Neve Tzuf Shuts Down Road to PA Arabs in Security Protest

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Residents of Neve Tzuf (Halamish) shut down Road 465, the Cross-Binyamin Road, to all Palestinian Authority Arab traffic, for an hour on Friday morning, according to a TPS report.

Residents are protesting the deteriorating security conditions on the road, where PA Arabs have been brazenly attacking Jewish motorists, as well as the upswing in terror attacks against their town emanating from the neighboring Arab villages, including the arson attack which damaged and destroyed dozens of homes inside of Neve Tzuf.

This week, Arab terrorists pumped four bullets into a passing Jewish woman’s car, miraculously not wounding her or her children sitting inside.

UPDATED: Six Minors Arrested in ‘Amona Protest’ Released for Lack of Evidence

Thursday, December 15th, 2016

UPDATE: The six minors were released from the Ariel police station without conditions, because Police were unable to show evidence to their claim the minors threw stones at Arabs cars. According Honenu, police officers warned the minors to remain away from Amona, even though there have not been charged, let alone convicted of disorderly behavior. According to Honenu, the minors were most likely reported to police by military observers who suspected them of planning to throw stones.

Six minors were arrested overnight Thursday near the Samaria Division circle (IDF Training Camp 3) on suspicion of throwing stones at Arab vehicles as part of the protest against the coming evacuation of Amona, Honenu legal aid society reported. The minors have denied the charges.

One of the minors is only 14. None of them has a criminal record.

Honenu attorney Nati Rom who arrived at the local police station to represent the minors reported that they were arrested around 1:30 AM and have yet to be questioned. Also, they have not been provided with proper sleeping arrangements.

“The minors are denying the charges,” Rom said. “There is no vehicle that corresponds to the claim about stone throwing; it appears that anxiety about the Amona protests is leading police to carry out false arrests.”

Jewish Organizations Protest UNESCO Insult to Judaism

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Words of history, political and emotional connections to Jerusalem, the Temple Mount, the Kotel (Western Wall) and the Dead Sea Scrolls were emphasized by speaker after speaker on Thursday, November 10th at a march and rally protesting UNESCO’s effort to erase Jews and Judaism from the Temple Mount.

The most recent effort by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) was a resolution referring to the holy sites both on and around the Temple Mount solely by their Arabic names. This resolution seeks to invalidate any claim  of the Jewish people to our holiest site, the marchers explained.


Speaker after speaker including Rabbi Avi Weiss and Mothers Against Terrorism’s Hillary Barr led chants of “Shame On Unesco” during the peaceful rally. There was also singing and dancing.


Jews and Non-Jews, young and old chanted, “We Stand With Israel,” as representatives of more than a dozen Jewish organizations, waved Israeli and American flags in unison.

unesco-rosenthal“Although the election is over, the fight for issues that matter to the community goes on. I was very pleased to speak at the rally opposing UNESCO’s ongoing attempt to sever the connection between the Jewish people and the land of Israel because this is a matter of great concern to the community — and is of critical importance to US national security. We need leaders who will stand up to the UN on behalf of the United States and Israel, and I stand ready to help in any capacity I can,” stated Phil Rosenthal, recent congressional candidate and board member of the Endowment for Middle East Truth, EMET.


Those interested in joining the effort to protest UNESCO’s efforts to erase Jewish ties to Jerusalem were encouraged to sign a petition.

Jews Protest in Paris Over UNESCO Resolution on Jerusalem

Thursday, October 27th, 2016

French Jews gathered at the Quai d’Orsay in Paris Thursday in a show of solidarity with Israel over the disgraceful resolutions passed by the United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization (UNESCSO) aimed at denying the ancient historic Jewish ties with Jerusalem.

CRIF, the political lobby group representing French Jewish communities, and the Consistoire, French Jewry’s organ responsible for religious services, called to join the protest rally, which took place opposite the French Foreign Ministry. France abstained from the vote on the first resolution by the UNESCO Executive Board, erasing Judaism’s ties to the Western Wall and the Temple Mount, last week.

The protesters expressed their outrage at the failure of France to vote against the two UNESCO committee resolutions erasing the ancient Jewish historic ties to Jerusalem and its holy sites.

“There’s been a long history of delegitimization of Israel with her land,” wrote Moshe Cohen Sabban on the French-language “Jforum” web site.

“The kingdom of Israel during its greatest reign under Kings David and Solomon, which went far beyond the current borders, has experienced many setbacks because of the schism between the kingdom of Judah with Jerusalem as its capital, and the kingdom of northern Israel.

“This territory took the name of Judea after the fall of the kingdom of Israel and the first century of the Common Era. After the fall of the Second Holy Temple to the Romans, the latter undertook to name this territory ‘Palestine,” to resonate with the territory of the Philistines.

“Rome wanted to wipe Israel off the map. It is remarkable that their heirs, 20 centuries later, are doing the same.

“The People of Israel have a clear claim to this land as our land, the descendants of Israel (Yaacov / Jacob) as appointed by God, the source of the Tributes that God brought out of Egypt to carry out in the Land that is ours by Divine Right.

“We must remain mobilized on this grave matter.”
