Children in Bomb Shelters

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

School children around the country sat in bomb shelters today as sirens sounded throughout Israel at 11:05 AM as part of a of an IDF Home Front Command drill simulating a missile attack on the country.

There will be another siren at 7:05 PM this evening.

Yup, that’s the kind of neighborhood we live in (but I wouldn’t live anywhere else).

UN Envoy Warns Syrian Refugees Will Outnumber Lebanese Schoolchildren

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Syrian refugee children in Lebanon are overwhelming that country’s public school system, according to former British prime minister Gordon Brown.

Currently a special education envoy for the United Nations, Brown issued a statement Tuesday appealing for more support for the Lebanese school system.

Brown himself vowed to help Lebanon raise $100 million towards the effort before August, the start of the coming school year.

Some 106,000 Syrian children have been enrolled in in more than 150 Lebanese public schools, Gordon reported Tuesday in a joint news conference in Beirut with Lebanese Education Minister Elias Bou Sa’ab.

More than 400,000 Syrian children require education – nearly twice the total number of Lebanese children enrolled in school.

The situation further complicates an already delicate military picture for Israel.

The Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist organization has created its guerrilla bases, bunkers, terror tunnels and arsenals in high population areas where both Lebanese civilians and now Syrian refugees also reside.

Hezbollah terrorists have long been aiding the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corpsmen in their fight to help government troops defend the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

In Lebanon, the terrorists now clearly plan to use that country’s civilians as human shields in any future war with Israel, as did their Gaza counterparts south of Israel, the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists, who both are also backed by Iran.

Be prepared.

French Soldiers Protecting Jewish Sites Receive Death Threats

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

French military personnel guarding Jewish sites in Paris are learning first-hand what anti-Semitism feels like.

The soldiers guarding a Jewish school in a suburb of the French capital have received death threats at least twice in the past two weeks.

In the first incident, a man drove in a car past the soldiers as they stood outside a school in Montreuil, shouting, “What does a Kalashnikov bullet in the head do? Does it bleed?”

A police source quoted by Le Figaro said the man also praised the recent terror attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo and the Hyper Cacher kosher grocery before escaping the scene.

The car drove away, but was later tracked down by police and the driver, approximately age 27, was arrested and detained overnight but was released the next morning.

The previous Saturday night, a similar incident occurred in the suburb of Le Raincy, according to the France Soir daily. Two soldiers standing guard outside another Jewish school were also threatened by a man pretending to hold a gun, who then fled the scene.

At present some 10,000 French military personnel are deployed around the Paris region following a wave of terror attacks on Jan. 7, 8 and 9 that were aimed at Jewish and non-Jewish French citizens alike.

132 Children Slaughtered in Pakistani Taliban Attack

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

At least 145 people – including 132 children – were murdered Tuesday in a Taliban terror attack on a school in Pakistan. More than 100 others were wounded in the slaughter, General Asim Bajwa told journalists.

Also among the dead at Army Public School and Degree College in Peshawar were ten school staff members and three soldiers, according to a post on the CNN website.

A 14-year-old student told the news team he remembered one of the terrorists declaring, “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great), and then, “A lot of the children are under the benches. Kill them.”

Pakistani Taliban spokesperson Mohammed Khurrassani said the attackers began their rampage at 10 am local time. He added that at one point, the terrorists held up to 400 people “under their custody.” But he emphasized there was never a question of a “hostage situation,” since from the start the focus had been on shooting to kill, rather than taking captives.

Pakistani troops eventually managed to narrow down the area in which the terrorists were operating and by 4 pm, had the attackers restricted to four buildings. Within a few hours, all seven terrorists were dead.

Mop up operations have yet to be completed, however; security personnel are still searching the complex for survivors, victims and IEDs (improvised explosive devices).

Neglecting Terror Setting Up Eastern Jerusalem Jews for Expulsion

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

Jerusalem Arabs attacked a school bus with large rocks and bottles in the Maaleh Zeitim neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem Sunday morning.

No one was injured although the attackers managed to smash the windshield of the bus, which was taking the children to their school in Jerusalem,

Border Police rushed to the scene, but – surprise but no surprise – no suspects were found.

Jews living in eastern Jerusalem have frequently complained of lack of police protection and of a soft-glove approach by courts when anyone is arrested and indicted.

Dozens of Jewish motorists and passengers have been ambushed several times in eastern Jerusalem the past several years, as reported here last week, here and here last month, and here in July.

Allowing Arab terrorists to rule the roads in Gush Katif in 2000-2005 was one of the factors that incited public opinion to favor expelling 9,000 Jews from 19 communities in Gaza in the summer of 2005.

Establishment media constantly claimed that the IDF could not protect their safety and that trying to do so cost the lives of soldiers as well as civilians.

The same cockeyed logic was behind the withdrawal of the IDF from the security zone in southern Lebanon in 2000, when Ehud Barak was prime minister.

Six years later, after Hezbollah exploited the total vacuum of intelligence and Israeli soldiers on the ground, it killed 121 IDF soldiers and 43 civilians in the Second Lebanon War.

More than 400 civilians were hospitalized in massive Hezbollah rocket and missile attacks, and nearly 900 suffered trauma. Approximately 6,000 homes sustained damage while 1 million residents spent much of their time in bomb shelters.

Following the expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif, hams bombarded Israel from the Negev to the Galilee with thousands of missiles and rockets, and Israel still has not achieved a long-term cease-fire agreement.

Constant attacks on Jews in eastern Jerusalem, with the help of Israel and foreign establishment media, could set up another scenario for the repeatedly failed strategy of offering “peace” by telling Jews the cannot live where they want in Jerusalem.

8-year-old Struck and Killed by School Bus

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

An eight year old boy was struck and killed Tuesday morning in a school parking lot by a school bus in Kibbutz Kfar Menachem, near the southern city of Kiryat Malachi.

The accident occurred as the boy was crossing at a crosswalk. The driver said he did not see the child, according to Israel public radio. Although medical and emergency rescue responders were at the scene immediately, resuscitation attempts failed to revive the boy.

Teachers and students at the child’s school were badly traumatized by the incident, which came only a day after a six year old girl was struck and killed by a mini-bus in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Shuafat. The driver of the mini-bus was arrested and questioned. The investigation is continuing in Kibbutz Kfar Menachem.
