TZOHAR Rabbis Say Forced Feeding of Hunger Striking Terrorists OK Under Jewish Law

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

(JERUSALEM- June 16, 2015) Amidst a growing controversy within the Israeli government and justice system over responses to planned “hunger strikes” in the country’s prisons, the Tzohar Rabbinical Organization said that forced feedings of prisoners to prevent them doing harm to themselves is fully acceptable under Jewish law.

Tzohar’s announcement came following a governmental decision earlier in the week which allowed prison authorities to force nutrition upon prisoners in instances where self-imposed hunger strikes posed a danger to the patient’s well-being.

“In Jewish tradition, human life is something which is given to us by God and it is not up to us to harm our own bodies- even if it is for something one views as having great value. This includes taking upon oneself a hunger strike,” Tzohar said in a statement. “We therefore concur with the government’s decision that when viewed as judicially prudent, prisoners can be forced to intake nutrition and this action would be in accordance with halacha and salutes the Jewish outlook on the centrality of human life.”

Tzohar Founder and President Rabbi David Stav added, “The human body was created in God’s image and we as people have no right to intentionally harm that creation. I therefore believe the government decision was the correct one and should be respected.”

Infantry Unit Spots Syrian Terrorists, IAF Neutralizes Them

Sunday, April 26th, 2015

The IDF killed 4 terrorists on the Israel-Syrian border on Sunday evening around 9:30 PM.

The 4 terrorists were spotted trying to plant explosives along the border with Israel, near Majdal Shams.

The terror cell were taken out by an IAF aircraft once they tried to place the bomb on the Israeli side of the border on the northern Golan Heights.

The army said it will not tolerate any attempt to breach or harm Israel’s sovereignty.

The terrorists were spotted by an infantry unit who called it in.

PLO Won’t Fight in Yarmouk, as Left Call to Flood Israel with Refugees

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl, the head of UNRWA, left to visit Syria on Saturday to discuss the situation in Yarmouk, a ‘Palestinian’ refugee camp in Damascus, Syria, established in 1957, and actually a suburb of Damascus, with real buildings, streets and infrastructure, and not a tent city as the name implies.

All the relief workers have fled the neighborhood since Islamic State invaded, and the situation in the neighborhood has been described as “beyond inhumane”.

Reading through the purposefully vague wording of the official UNRWA press release, it appears that Krähenbühl will not actually visit the Yarmouk neighborhood, though it tries to give off the impression that he would.

On April 1, Islamic State (Da’esh) attacked and overran Yarmouk, a suburb in southern Damascus, fighting the local Hamas-affiliated terror group, Bait al-Maqdis, that controlled the neighorhood.

There is another terror group in the Sinai also named Bait al-Maqdis, who are thought to have had connections with Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, but have since sworn allegiance to Islamic State.

Da’esh took over most of the southern Damascus neighborhood, and were reportedly assisted by members of Jabhat Al-Nusra who helped get them in.

Two years ago, Yarmouk had over 200,000 residents, but now they are down to less than 18,000. The neighborhood has been under siege by pro-Assad’s troops for the past two years. The PLO and other ‘Palestinian’ factions were among the first to flee in 2013.

Islamic State said they came in to liberate the residents from Assad’s siege.

On Friday, the Palestinian Authority/PLO has made it clear they have absolutely no intention of helping their compatriots militarily, contradicting an AP report quoting the PLO envoy to Damascus, Ahmad Majdalani, who said the PLO would join sides with the Syrian government to expel Da’esh from the Yarmouk neighborhood.

The PLO says it refuses “to be drawn into any armed campaign.” The Palestinian Authority has been undecided as to which side it should support in the Syrian civil war.

According to Al Jazeera,

Wasel Abu Yousef, a senior PLO official based in the West Bank town of Ramallah, said Friday that negotiating safe passage for Yarmouk’s besieged residents and for humanitarian supplies is preferable to military action.

Of course, since Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey are refusing to allow most ‘Palestinian’ refugees to enter their countries, it’s not clear where the safe passage would actually take them, except outside the latest immediate battle zone.

Left-wing groups in Israel have launched a new campaign to flood Israel with tens (hundreds?) of thousands of Yarmouk “Palestinian refugees” for “humanitarian” reasons, since their fellow Arabs and Muslims refuse to help them and grant them refuge.

Left-wing ideologues are trying to use the Yarmouk crisis to radically change the demographics of Judea and Samaria, while saying that Israel should ignore the political consequences of such an action.

In the Jerusalem Post, Gershon Baskin writes, “This is not the time to score political points… Israel should announce immediately its willingness to have those 18,000 remaining residents of Yarmouk come to the West Bank.”

A Haaretz Editorial wrote, “Israel could offer Abbas the possibility of absorbing some of the refugees into the Palestinian Authority… Political considerations and disputes with the PA should be set aside at this time.”

Islamic State’s control of Yarmouk gives Da’esh a strong foothold in Damascus, which they haven’t had before.

For the Israeli far-Left, their “solution” to this crisis aligns perfectly with their ongoing political agenda to get rid of Israeli control over historic Judea and Samaria – some might say, almost cynically so.

ISIS Burns to Death 45 in Iraq, Vows to ‘Conquer Rome’

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Daesh (ISIS) terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have carried out another horrific mass execution, this time in Iraq — a follow-up to beheading 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians in Libya — and vowed to conquer Rome as well.

The video evidence was reportedly uploaded Tuesday, showing Daesh terrorists burning alive 45 people in the western Iraqi town of al-Baghdadi. The identity of the victims was not known, although it is believed that some were security officers.

On Friday, a media group linked to Daesh released a four-minute video titled “Peshmerga Captives in Kirkuk Province,” purportedly showing Kurdish captives in iron cages being driven around on trucks in Iraq, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Last week Daesh captured the town, located in Anbar province, about five miles away from a U.S. air force base. There are 320 U.S. Marines stationed at the nearby Ain al-Asad air base, training members of the Iraqi Army’s 7th Division.

The base also was attacked this past Friday by Daesh fighters, but the terror group failed in their attempt to capture the site.

Meanwhile, Italy – specifically, Rome – has raised its alert and its security following the slaughter of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by Daesh last weekend on a Mediterranean seaside in Libya. The Libyan government followed up the massacre with a 24-hour deadline for all Egyptian Christians to leave the country.

A specific threat against the ancient city was also made by the terrorist organization, which vowed to conquer Rome in a video released on Sunday showing the mass execution of the Christian victims in Libya.

“And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission, the promise of our prophet, peace be upon him,” the terror leader said in the Libyan execution video on Sunday.

According to the Breitbart news website, Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization has warned Italy not to get involved in Libya under “the pretext of fighting terrorism.” Hamas spokesperson Salah al-Bardawil said such a move would be taken as “a new Crusade against Arab and Muslim countries.”

Is this a sign the Muslim Brotherhood-spawned Hamas group has begun to align with Daesh?

Next Knesset to Consider Whether Israel Should Sentence Terrorists to Death [election]

Tuesday, February 17th, 2015

Foreign Minister and Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman vowed Tuesday morning that the first bill to be considered in the next Knesset will be one to debate whether or not to impose a death sentence on terrorists.

Liberman contended “we’re inviting more and more terrorism,” in an address at the INSS Conference in Tel Aviv.

“The fight against terrorism is the biggest challenge the world faces in the 21st century,” he said. “This is also Israel’s biggest challenge. But there’s a wide gap between that which Israel speaks to, and that which is actually carried out here,” Liberman continued.

“Releasing terrorists – including those who have committed the most horrendous of attacks, such as the lynching in Ramallah – is the worst possible message to send in the war against terror,” Liberman contended. “We have to show terrorists we are switching gears, that there are no more deals,” he said.

“What’s important is to already starting thinking about how to prevent the fifth round of fighting [in Gaza],” Liberman went on.

“Every military operation must end with a decisive victory, otherwise we’re eroding our capabilities and our deterrence,” he pointed out.

“Because we find ourselves in a military conflict against Hamas every two years Israel is unable to make long-term plans like a normal country – not on policy, and not on economic issues.” This is an untenable situation, Liberman asserted.

ISIS Beheads 21 Coptic Christians; Egypt Declares Week of Mourning

Monday, February 16th, 2015

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has declared a seven-day period of national mourning in response to the latest barbarity by Daesh, or ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria terrorist organization.  Egypt’s leader also convened the National Defense Council.

A spokesperson for Egypt’s Coptic Church also has confirmed the murders of the young men, all of whom  were beheaded by the terror group.

According to Egypt’s official state news agency, Daesh released a video on Sunday showing the execution of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians who were kidnapped months ago in Libya.

All were men dressed in the now-traditional orange prisoner jumpsuit, marched out to the shoreline and then lined up on their knees on the sand. They were executed at a beach that the video named as, “Wilayat Tarabulus by the Mediterranean Sea.”

Behind each captive was a black-masked executioner with a knife. After a brief statement by the Daesh leader, all were beheaded simultaneously.

The video, slickly produced, was entitled “A Message Signed With Blood to the nation of the cross.” It was released by Al Hayat Media Center, the media outlet for Daesh, and appeared on the Twitter feed on a pro-Daesh website.

El-Sisi called on Egyptian Copts to “come home,” saying their return to Egypt is the only way to ensure their protection from radical Islamist terrorism.

A separate video posted by the group earlier purported to show 17 captive Kurdish fighters in cages paraded through the streets of Iraq, most likely as a prelude to a flaming execution similar to that of Jordanian fighter pilot Muath al-Kasaesbeh.

Daesh has also reportedly publicly executed two alleged “spies” and a third man was crucified to a post with a sign hanging around his neck in the Syrian city of Al-Bab. Photos of the executions emerged Sunday on the Internet and were posted in a report by the British Daily Mail newspaper.
