This clip of the IDF finding itself the unwitting actors in the middle of a Pallywood production was too good to not set to the appropriate music.

Yishai takes the occasion of Israel’s Remembrance Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism — and last week’s Holocaust Remembrance Day — to express his view of Jewish victimhood. He says that while we commemorate Jewish and Israeli victims, the ideology of Jew-hatred is alive and well. He also asks: “If the enemy has a free hand and no fear, can we really say ‘Never Again’? He takes issue with the lack of Jewish society’s “right to rage” when our people are murdered and our country deligitimized.
Then, Yishai is joined by Shlomo Blass, the director of Rogatka, a studio that creates short, pro-Israel videos. Among the founders of Caroline Glick’s satirical Latma series, that poked fun at the Left, he is now launching a new project: “Zionism in Animation” — 100 short videos on different aspects of Zionism, including important historical moments and figures.
Finally, Yishai is treated to a cameo appearance by VOI’s Pinchas Orban, who talks about the rationality behind belief in God.
Hamas does it again with its Top Hits of All Time, and this week it’s a smashing music video from that Top Terror organization heating up all the beating hearts in Gaza.
The group’s Islamic Block at Al Quds University has just produced a special quick flick showing all the fans out there exactly how to murder Jews. It’s a musical enactment of the murder of two praying Jews, wearing their prayer shawls.

The first praying man up is clearly no match for the heroic Hamas fighting men of radical Islam, with one who approaches with stealth and vigor, swiftly stabbing him to death over and over before slinking away and vanishing.
Our second contender is seen absorbed in his prayers, standing tall – but again, no match for the overwhelming forces of the fearless fighters of Hamas, who dance over to the praying Jew in a special choreographed movement, surrounding him completely and emptying their assault rifle clips into his body. He falls to the floor, his lifeblood leaving his body after the masked heroes of Hamas “open fire, [and] have no mercy.”
Overcome with gratitude to Allah for having merited the honor to murder two Jews, the entire terror squad – oops, I mean, Resistance Battalion – drops to its knees and bows their heads reverently in prayer.
It’s a top-of-the-charts video, folks. “Islamic Block (Hamas) of Al-Quds University”
(Translation courtesy of the Palestinian Media Watch organization) and you can catch it on Facebook (Jan. 12, 2015) on the page of the Islamic Block (Hamas.)
“Load your machine gun and advance, son of proud Jerusalem
Gird yourself with flames and capture the soldiers
Open fire, have no mercy, shoot the Zionists!
Advance with your men, O keffiyeh-masked one!
The land of the Night Journey [Jerusalem] is our [first] direction of prayer
Its liberation is our goal
Palestinian, lead the attack and raise our flag.”
Ed. Note: PMW has documented that the Palestinian Authority led by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and the entity’s leading Fatah faction, also led by Abbas, have publicly glorified the murderers who recently slaughtered four rabbis – three U.S.-Israel dual citizens and one UK-Israel dual citizen – in a Jerusalem synagogue. Hamas is a partner with Fatah in the PA unity government. An advisor to Abbas himself posted on his own Facebook page “pictures from the scene of the heroic operation,” showing the bloodied, badly mutilated dead bodies of the Jewish martyrs. Decades-long incitement through carefully cultivated media campaigns such as these have created the monsters who are no longer able to even envision a world in which peace is a possibility, let alone a need.Rachel Levy
Tzipi Livni, the Labor party’s latest actor posing as a politician, swept the sewers Saturday night to trash Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in unprecedented terms, calling him “impotent”, “garbage” and a ”zero.”
Tzipi Livni has been a bad actor ever since she went into politics. She comes across as a phony, an intelligent woman who has tried to fool everybody by talking like a diplomat, talking like a politician and talking like a prime minister, a position she held for three months when Ehud Olmert was forced to quit because of criminal accusations and which she had to leave because couldn’t form a coalition government.
Talk about impotence!
Saturday night, she decided to act like a low-brow stand-up comedian on the satirical show called Matzav HaUma, the State of the Nation.
She won guffaws form the audience, shocked faces from the hosts and arguably lost thousands of voters for her performance that made gutter politics look respectable.
Her HaTnua party, which was able to elect only six people to the disbanded Knesset, merged with the Labor party last week in an agreement that would make its chairman Yitzchak Herzog and Livni prime ministers on a rotational basis if they can form a government after the elections.
Livni explained on the satirical show, “Two prime ministers with potential are better than one prime minister who is impotent.”
That is hitting below the belt, pardon the expression, even if Netanyahu were not prime minister.
Then she played Dracula and went for the jugular vein but missed and went back for the groin, apparently her favorite target, to wit:”[Herzog and I] will take out the garbage together.”
Her next shot also was beyond the pale.
Referring to the “Zero Value Added Tax” for new homes, which was promoted by Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid and which never was encouraged by Netanyahu, she told the audience, “The truth is that Bibi said he is going to elections on the Zero VAT proposal. I thought that there is one zero in this story but it is not VAT,” meaning it is Netanyahu.
She was so thrilled with herself that she had a hard time to stop laughing.
Livni showed that she can be disgusting. She may have pleased her hardcore supporters who chuckle at the put-downs, but even the show’s hosts were shocked.
One of them asked Livni why she didn’t use such language when she was dismissed by Netanyahu as Justice Minister by Netanyahu.
Her answer was so crude and ugly that it cannot be hinted at with even a single letter without offending readers.
It was a disgusting gutter remark that is used only by the crudest of the crude, and Livni herself apologized immediately after spitting out the expression.
Hillary Clinton, who has trouble speaking a single sentence without the infamous four-letter “F” word, should get along well with Livni if both of them are elected.
Even more shocking than Livni’s remarks was the absolute silence by Israel’s establishment anti-Netanyahu media.
If Netanyahu had used language, he would have been nailed to the Star of David.
The media did permit itself to quote Likud ministers who attacked Livni for her degrading and insulting remarks.
“Is she on drugs?” asked Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, who may be appointed temporary Finance Minister before the elections.
He added, “Yesterday, we saw a disgusting and unprecedented sight of trashing the Prime Minister…. Since her [diplomatic] relations with Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] have been cut off, she has gone off the deep end. She is addicted to ties with the Palestinians, and she cannot get along without them..”Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
A new satirical new site called “PreOccupied Territory” features a Jewish and Israeli perspective on news around the world as seen by journalist David Swidler, who also is behind the blog “Mightier than the Pen.”
His objective is to make the news more understandable through humor, something The Jewish Press does on a regular basis and especially on Purim.
Some of the initial articles are headlined, “After Rocket Fire, Israel Retaliates Harshly against Trees, Rocks,” “Tragedy Strikes as Gaza Strip Fails to Sink into Mediterranean,” “Despite 7-Hour Talk, Kerry Fails to Convince Netanyahu His Chin Is Real,” and “Book Accuses Jews of Controlling Israeli Government.”Jewish Press News Briefs
Trendy Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posted on his Facebook page an image of himself as Mariano Idelman, a satirist on the popular Eretz Nehederet (Wonderful Land) program and undoubtedly more popular than any Israeli politician.
Doppelganger week is Facebook’s three-year old annual gimmick that lets people find a celebrity whom they think is a look-alike.
The timing of Doppelganger week with the opening of the 19th Knesset Tuesday opens up tremendous virtual opportunities for a dream government.
Yair Lapid, chairman of the new secular-oriented Future (Yesh Atid) party, could try pairing up with Rabbi Yisrael Meir Lau, former Chief Rabbi and the post popular person to have filled that role in decades.
Lapid and Naftali Bennett, chairman of the Jewish Home (Habayit Hayehudi) party, hold the keys to the coalition government that Netanyahu is trying to form. If Bennett, a champion of a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria, would Doppelganger with President Barack Obama, Netanyahu would have it made.
Obama would get along with Israel, assuming he gets along with himself.
Lapid would learn a bit of Torah.
And Netanyahu would be Israel’s most popular comedian, which some critics say he already is.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
