IDF to Implement Tunnel Alert Siren

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

It’s not just for rockets anymore. The IDF has decided to implement a tunnel alert system for Israeli communities around Gaza, according to Yediot Achronot.

The alert will sound exactly the same as the “red alert” for rockets, but in order for citizens to know the attack is from below and not above, residents will receive an SMS stating: “Due to an infiltration by terrorists, residents are asked to lock themselves in their homes with the lights off until further notice.”

In addition, local security personnel will receive additional notifications.

While the intentions are good, the idea has a few obvious flaws, the most basic is the assumption that everyone will have a phone on them at all times, including children in the park, people on Shabbat and anyone who simply forgot their phone on the kitchen table so it can recharge after the battery died.

In addition, it seems quite likely that in the critical and stressful 10-15 second window Gaza border residents have, civilians will start running to the bomb shelters when they hear the siren, only to get an SMS telling them to turn around and run back home, leaving them exposed and confused.

Perhaps the most obvious flaw in this entire plan, is that Israel simply didn’t get rid of Hamas the last time around, which would have made all these rocket and tunnel alerts completely superfluous.

Gush Etzion Tunnel Road Closed Following Shooting at Soldiers [video]

Tuesday, June 21st, 2016

The tunnel road linking Gush Etzion and Jerusalem was closed on Tuesday morning after soldiers heard shots fired at them.

A civilian who got caught inside the checkpoint during the attack described the situation as a “balagan”, a lot of confusion.

As soon as the shots were fired, the checkpoint went into a terrorist response mode. The road was closed and soldiers began preparing for action.

Following a quick search, a bullet was found embedded in one of the concrete barriers at the checkpoint.

One soldier was lightly scratched on his leg by the ricochet from the shooting, but he refused to be evacuated to the hospital.

The road has now been reopened.

Shiloh Musings: There is NO Way to WALL OUT TERRORISM!!

Monday, June 20th, 2016

Admittedly, since I’m not home, I haven’t read or heard much news. Yesterday someone mentioned to me that my State of Israel had announced they would wall out the terrorists, try to block the Arab terror tunnels by creating some science fiction type of underground wall so the terrorists can’t tunnel into Israel.

Duh?!?

I can’t imagine anything more ridiculous. When the “greens” protest the damage to the Land, fauna and flora they will have a good  point.

In terms of sheer size land scope it seems totally impossible.

And it won’t stop terrorism at all. Again it’s like the cutting of the brooms in the animated movie Fantasia.

To stop the Arab terrorism we must get in their mindset and not act so wimpy, apologetic and technological. It’s like trying to combine bubbles with staplers, or making a “pile” of water, thinking it’s like trash or rubble. You can’t sweep water into a corner. Terror is a psychological mindset, a combination of sociopath, ideology, brainwashing.

It is terribly dangerous to project one’s own mentality onto the terrorists, thinking that the logic or goodness that would convince you to do something would influence a terrorist. The truth is that it just shows our weakness and makes them stronger and more confident.

A wall is just something to bypass. We must defeat the terrorists militarily, psychologically and politically. Nothing else will do it!!

Donald Trump Says US Must ‘Think About’ Preventive Security Profiling

Sunday, June 19th, 2016

Presumptive GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump told the CBS News program “Face the Nation” on Sunday (June 19) that America is “going to have to start thinking about” profiling for preventive security.

Trump’s remarks, in a phone interview, came in context of a discussion about the Orlando nightclub massacre by a radical Islamic terrorist last week.

“Other countries do it, you look at Israel and you look at others, they do it and they do it successfully. And I hate the concept of profiling but we have to start using common sense and we have to use our heads,” he said. “It’s not the worst thing to do.”

Omar Mateen was a homegrown Muslim killer whose parents immigrated to the United States from Afghanistan in the 1980s. Two months prior to the rampage on the Pulse Nightclub that took the lives of 49 people and injured 53 others, he signed over his property to his sister for the sum of $10. Although his wife claimed she and their two children had no clue about his activities, evidence cited by media shows the two were in contact via text and Facebook just before and during his attack.

It’s not the first time a Muslim extremist has killed after being inspired and incited by the Da’esh (ISIS) terrorist organization over the internet.

Just a day later, a deputy police chief in a Paris suburb and his female partner were murdered at their home. Their 3-year-old son was spared because a police SWAT team charged the home and shot him dead. Police broke in, knowing the situation was critical — they were monitoring the musings of the terrorist as he wondered via live stream on Facebook ‘what he should do with the child.’

“They’re doing it in France,” Trump pointed out. “In fact, in some instances they’re closing down mosques. People don’t want to talk about it. People aren’t talking about it,” he said, underscoring the discomfort among most Democratic societies facing a terrorist threat. “But look at what they’re doing in France,” he continued. “They’re actually closing down mosques.”

Trump also called for members of the Muslim community to come forward and report suspicious activity.

“When you look at, when you look at people within the Muslim community and where people are living and they don’t report, and a good example of that would be San Berndardino,” he said. “I mean, they had bombs all over their apartment floor and people saw it and nobody reported them, and 14 people were killed, many injured,” he reminded.

The Orlando killer also showed many “red flags” before he attacked, Trump commented. “You look at his past – I mean, I’ve never seen a past quite like that. You look at his record in school, you look at a lot of other things. There were a lot of red flags. This was not a very good young man.”

Trump said he is working with the NRA (National Rifle Association) on a policy to ban those listed on the terror watch list from purchasing guns.

Although many media outlets have claimed Trump has called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. The statement is taken out of context and is only a partial truth. In fact, Trump called for a suspension, not an outright ban, of Muslim immigration – with obvious exceptions to be made – until the government could plug the holes in the current screening process that allow entry of Muslim extremists such as those who carried out the San Bernadino terror attack a few months ago.

Media reports revealed the terrorists were given visas without their beliefs and values even being questioned by interviewers prior to receiving a visa.

Obama’s Ridiculous Reaction

Monday, June 13th, 2016

I really wanted to take a break from politics and talk about something else besides radical Islamic terrorism and how liberals are giving in to them, but the recent attack in Orlando and the ridiculous reactions by POTUS and liberal minds across the globe leave me no choice. The entire situation reminds me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, An Emperor hires two weavers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or “hopelessly stupid”. Finally the weavers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his nation. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor suspects the assertion is true, but continues the procession.”

A radical Islamic terrorist walks into a restaurant in Tel Aviv or a bar in Orlando and murders innocent people. The reaction is anger and then there is a cry not to define this as a radical Islamic terrorist attack. The Mayor of Tel Aviv blames Israel and POTUS won’t even mention the words Islamic terror because telling the truth is not as important as faking like he sees the emperors clothes.

The terrorist was interviewed by the FBI TWICE(!!) for radical Islamic activity but allowed to legally acquire a gun because to refuse his constitutional right to bear arms based on his radical Islamic views alone would be considered racist in the liberal mind . Careful about pointing out that this was an Islamic terrorist attack, they will make fun of you for not seeing the Emperor’s invisible clothes. It doesn’t matter the terrorist swore allegiance to ISIS (that’s ISLAMIC State for those who were wondering), or that he screamed Allah Akhbar before shooting up 50 people, the liberals are still applauding the Emperor’s new clothes and call this a gun problem! The emperor is walking around as naked as he was on the day he was born, but if you dare say so, you are called a racist and deemed unfit for the enlightened “libertard” culture that is running around protecting those who want you dead!

THE EMPEROR IS %^& NAKED!

I will happily be that little kid to let the emperor know he is stark naked and his not so flattering figure is putting us all in danger!

Islamic terror is hitting all over the world! The left in Israel that are advocating making deals with terrorists as well as the liberals in the US or Europe that refuse to admit there is a problem called Islamic terror are part of the problem!

This is about gun control? REALLY!

Perhaps after 9/11 we should have outlawed planes!

Who finally killed the terrorist in Orlando?

Who killed the terrorist in TA? I believe it was someone with a gun!

If the bar would not have been run by liberals who decided to make it a gun free zone, perhaps there would be much less than 50 innocent people murdered and the terrorist would have been sent to his paradise much earlier.

The Muslims I know have publicly bashed those who carried out these attacks, but where is the vocal majority? Where are the mass Muslim demonstrations in Orlando against terrorists who are using their religion to murder people? Where were the mass Israeli Arab demonstrations in Israel against the terror attack in TA?
