Shiloh Musings: Last week, ended with a hail of bullets, a rocket attack…

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016

Last week, ended with a hail of bullets, a rocket attack on a Sderot nursery school, stabbings, murders all perpetrated by Arab Muslims on innocent Jews. They, the Arabs murdered and injured Jews last week, a thirteen 13 year old girl has breathed and danced her last. A father and educator was shot before the eyes of his son, daughter and wife. Other Jews were attacked, injured some seriously for no reason, other than their being Jewish.

If you think such brutal deadly anti-Semitism ended with the defeat of Nazi Germany, you’re very wrong. Not only are there Arab terrorists who attack and murder Jews, but they are supported by the same countries which were once under Nazi control. Today there are all sorts of funds and projects and NGO sponsored by the EU, the European Union that encourage the Arabs to replace the State of Israel with a new Arab country called “Palestine,” and attack Jews.

These Arab terror attacks are not limited to Judea, Samaria and other Land Israel liberated in the defensive war, a war for survival, the 1967 Six Days War. Arabs attack Jews in Tel Aviv, Netanya, Sedrot, all over. That’s because they don’t want any Jews to survive. Yes, that’s just like the Nazis.

The IDF announced it had attacked two Syrian army targets Sunday overnight in retaliation for shots fired at the security fence on Israel’s border with Syria. According to the report, on Sunday morning security forces noted a rocket that fell in open territory on the Israeli side of the fence. It did not cause damage or injuries. The retaliatory strikes were launched by artillery shelling.

“The gunfire did not endanger the residents in the area or our forces,” the IDF said in a statement. “The IDF is not involved in the fighting in Syria but is determined to defend itself and will respond to any unusual incident.”

Rocket Alert – Gaza Border Communities (False Alarm)

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

A rocket alert went off for two Gaza border communities at 2:46 PM.

The IDF says the alarm was a “false alarm” which means the Red Alert should not have gone off, either because there was no launch, or because what was launched was not going to land in Israel.

IDF Acquires New Long-Range Rocket From IMI

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

One usually associates the acquisition of the long-range rockets with Iran, Hezbollah or terrorists in Gaza.

But it turns out the IDF has just acquired an exquisitely accurate long-range rocket produced by Israeli defense firm Israel Military Industries (IMI)– the new long-range Taas EXTRA (Extended Range Artillery Rocket) missile.

The Taas, capable of hitting a target within a 10-meter accuracy radius even as far as 150 kilometers away, is part of Israel’s new arsenal being developed in preparation for a possible future conflict with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

The Taas EXTRA long-range rocket manufactured by IMI.

The missile is described by the firm as a “precise, cost-effective, tactical-range artillery rocket” that allows ground force commanders to “influence the battlefield” at a range of 20 to 150 kilometers.

Developed in the IMI factory in Givon, the new rocket is approximately four meters long, with a diameter of 30 centimeters, and capable of carrying a variety of warheads up to a weight of 120 kilograms.

It’s a highly accurate rocket with a proven effectiveness against a “wide range of high payoff targets across the tactical battlefield,” according to the company.

The Taas will enable Israel to attack and eliminate any number of targets in Lebanon, should that prove necessary. This will also reduce the cost and complications of aerial attacks against the Iranian-backed Hezbollah guerrilla group where they hide north of Israel’s borders.

Smuggled Rocket/Mortar Parts Shipment From Hebron to Gaza Foiled

Thursday, May 26th, 2016

A recent joint operation by Israeli military, police, customs and tax officials and Shin Bet intelligence agents has turned up a massive shipment of military parts headed for Gaza from Hebron. It is also now clear there is a Hamas manufacturing facility in the ancient Judean city.

Terrorists were caught red-handed with contraband – weaponry parts – at the Tarqumiya crossing near Hebron with a large shipment headed for the Kerem Shalom crossing into Gaza.

Intercepted pipes for rockets and mortars

The shipment was listed as textiles and jewelry, and was huge, according to a statement by security officials.

But hidden among the goods were a lot of electric motors that are useful for building tunnels – attack tunnels – and special cuttings for mortars and rockets.

Intercepted electric motors for tunnels

Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization has, in fact, a manufacturing and distribution center set up in Hebron, with a plant there to produce parts for its war machine.

Imagine what might have happened, if the Tarqumiya checkpoint no longer existed?

Or if the Kerem Shalom crossing were simply wide open, as Turkey continues to demand?
