Gaza Tots Taught to Wage War Against Israel in Realistic School Plays [video]

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016

Gaza tots are being taught from the tiniest ages –from three and up — how to wage war against Israel. They are being desensitized to the sounds of war in school plays where they learn to wage war against Israel in realistic-sounding battle scenes.

It’s not a joke, or even a game. It’s very serious business and deliberate, methodical indoctrination of the next generation that begins literally with playground or daycare, and continues straight through the lifespan, via all forms of media, to the grave.

The Da’esh (ISIS or Islamic State) and Hezbollah terrorist groups have been doing this for quite some time as well.

IDF Spokesperson Lt.-Col. Peter Lerner called the latest video of these events “a rare glimpse into Gaza child abuse,” and asked Facebook users to “please share this.”  JewishPress.com asks its readers to do the same, for only through wide dissemination of this information will English-speaking readers learn the truth about what is happening to the children of Gaza.

These events are not being covered at all in the mainstream media abroad for many reasons, perhaps primary among them might be the safety of their journalists whose own lives and those of their families depend upon the capricious whims of Gaza’s ruling Hamas terrorist organization.

For those journalists who do write about these horrors, their editors either ignore the facts or dismiss them as aberrations.

Few are really aware of the deliberate generational programming that is taking place among the Palestinian Authority Arabs, quietly promoted by Ramallah-based leader Mahmoud Abbas and Gazan Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh.

These school-based “war game plays” flow into the summer camp programs when the children learn the more practical aspects of battle: how to properly wield their little weapons, how to sight, aim and fire, the art of camouflage, etc.

Each terrorist group runs its own summer program for children from ages 3 to 21 – by which time, “graduates” have already become fully functioning operatives of the terror group.

Get Refusal: Terrorism By Any Other Name

Thursday, May 19th, 2016

During the recent Pesach holiday I had the opportunity to reflect on the freedoms we take for granted each day.

In this country we are afforded a wide array of freedoms previously denied our ancestors, neighbors, and colleagues. While we may take it for granted, most of these freedoms were obtained through such measures as military action, widespread protest, substantial political maneuvering, legal action, and judicial intervention.

When a woman is denied a Get following the disintegration of her marriage, she is denied her freedom. She is denied the freedom to separate herself permanently from a spouse to whom she no longer wishes to be married. She is denied the freedom to move on in her life and forge a new relationship. She is denied the freedom to have (more) children.

Too often, unfortunately, woman are also asked to forgo their parental and economic rights as well in exchange for their freedom. I would like to pose a question that may be viewed as controversial: Should a woman, and her supporters, negotiate with a recalcitrant spouse in order to gain her freedom? In essence, should we negotiate with a terrorist?

Terrorists make demands because they believe the demands will be met. When those demands are met or negotiated over, the tactic proves effective. When people or governments negotiate with terrorists, at least two important consequences invariably follow. There is an immediate relinquishing of what was demanded and there is a future fallout that can almost always be directly connected to the initial exchange. (For example, future terrorist activity on the part of prisoners freed in a negotiation).

To simplify the rationale for terrorism for the purpose of this article, let us assume that terrorists act in pursuit of a specific quid pro quo or to attain an overall sense of power and acquisition. (All too often, men who withhold a Get do so simply to gain and maintain power and control over their spouse.) It would follow, then, that if a terrorist understood that no matter what the demand and no matter how dire the situation, there would be no negotiation, the terrorist would not continue to incite terror.

How is such a goal achieved? Through zero tolerance. By not negotiating with terrorists under any circumstances.

Get refusal exists because we allow it to exist. Without looking to change halacha, we certainly have the power to effectuate change through a communal climate shift. If public pressure were such that recalcitrance in granting a Get would – without exception – be abhorred rather than tolerated, there would be no place for Get refusal in our communities.

When the Get of even one terror victim is negotiated, the freedom of so many others is sacrificed. In the absence of an unadulterated zero-tolerance policy, there will always be room for acceptance. Negotiating with a man who refuses his wife a Get sends a message to the community that Get refusal is within the norm and that the granting of a Get carries a price.

I do not want to suggest that even one woman serve as the sacrificial lamb in her fight for freedom. However, change will only come if there is a systemic and unwavering movement toward a policy of not negotiating with terrorists.

May we soon experience freedom and redemption for all of Klal Yisrael.

FM Director-General Dore Gold Thanks Norway For Blocking Payments to Jailed Arab Terrorists

Sunday, May 15th, 2016

Foreign Ministry Director-General Dore Gold thanked Norway on Sunday for blocking foreign aid payments that were being used to funnel funds to Arab terrorists by the Palestinian Authority.

Gold spoke with the Norwegian Ambassador Jon Hanssen-Bauer in order to express Israel’s appreciation with the decision taken by Norway’s Foreign Minister Børge Bren regarding Norway’s financial contribution to the Palestinian Authority’s coffers.

Norway has made clear that under no circumstances would it contribute funds that would be transferred to support convicted terrorists and their families.

D-G Gold stated that Israel supports aid to the Palestinian Authority — as long as such aid does not incentivize terrorism.

“It is outrageous that killing Israelis has become a source of income for many in the PA,” Gold said. “This completely contradicts what peace is all about. These payments incentivize terrorism and must be stopped,” he added.

Earlier this month, Norwegian Foreign Minister Børge Brende met with PA leader Mahmoud Abbas in Ramallah and told him that the “extensive support program” of his government, making payments to security prisoners (terrorists) in Israeli jails, is unacceptable and should stop.

The payment program was first exposed by the Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) watchdog organization in 2011.

IDF Officer Still in Serious Condition After Bombing at Hizme

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

An IDF officer wounded in a terror attack at the Hizme checkpoint north of Jerusalem remains in serious condition, according to officials at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center. He underwent complex surgery to address his injuries the morning after the attack.

The officer sustained head and face wounds when a pipe bomb blew up as he bent down to examine a suspicious-looking package on the ground at the entrance to the roadblock. The Hizme checkpoint is located close to the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev.

One of nine IEDs (improvised explosive devices) and pipe bombs used in a terror attack at the Hizme checkpoint.

A total of four bombs detonated at the checkpoint Tuesday night, injuring a second soldier as well. He sustained shrapnel wounds in a leg and was evacuated to the hospital in good condition.

Sappers who were summoned to the site discovered an additional five bombs during their sweep of the area. All were defused by the bomb squad.

The public has been asked to pray for the health and well-being of Shachar ben Eilat.

Terror Victim’s Widower to UN Secretary General: You Did Not Reach Out To Us

Sunday, May 8th, 2016

By Jonathan Benedek/TPS

Natan Meir, widower of terror victim Dafna Meir who was killed in January by a terrorist inside her home, accused the UN of ignoring his plight and that of his children in a letter written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon. Meir reflected in the letter, upon his visit to the UN headquarters in New York over two weeks ago under the auspices of Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon and the One Family non-profit organization.

“Not a single ambassador of the nations of the world bothered to come and comfort my 17-year-old daughter,” wrote Meir. “Not one came up to shake our hands. No one called or met with us before or after. No one wrote a letter.”

Apparently, the UN Secretary General did not approach Meir or his daughter, either.

“Even you, Mr. Secretary General, while sitting at the head of that meeting, did not reach out to us and or take notice of our anguished faces,” continued Meir.

Referring to himself as a “citizen of the world,” Meir also addressed the controversy involving his place of residence in the town of Otniel, located in southern Judea. Israeli construction in the Judean and Samarian regions, which were captured by Israel in the Six Day War of 1967, is viewed by many in the international community as illegal.

“Indeed, I know my place of residence is not acceptable to you, and so I ask you not to consent, but to understand,” Meir said. “You should know that many of my neighbors who are considered Palestinian Arabs have sent condolences, looked me in the eye, and come to my house.”

“They know and I know that true peace will be achieved by us, the common people,” Meir contended.

Meir also took the opportunity to object to current efforts within UN circles to impose a two-state solution between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. He described such a plan, which would almost certainly result in the evacuation of thousands of Israelis living in Judea and Samaria, as racist and a violation of democratic principles and norms.

“The United Nations demands that Israel implement the vision of political separation by fences and borders,” noted Meir. “In this solution, there are no human rights and no democracy. It is based on a shocking element of racism.”

Meir suggested to the UN secretary general that efforts should instead be concentrated on mutual peace building initiatives between Israelis and Palestinians on the ground.

“Peace is the result of building a life together, recognition and appreciation of shared beliefs, mutual acquaintance, endless patience, and endless love,” wrote Meir. “All these things require time, dozens, or even hundreds of years.”

“Patience of generations enables mutual forgiveness and building a life together despite the pain,” asserted Meir. “This is the way real equality comes from shared inner desire.”

In that vein, Meir called for the secretary general to adopt such an outlook and to participate in the implementation of such a plan.

“Make it possible for us to patiently advance our shared lives for posterity,” requested Meir. “Please help us to build bridges and connections between people, rather than borders and fences.”
