Leftist Leader Appalled by Police Gratuitous Tasing of Settler (Video)

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

“How can you be nauseated when you watch the riot police using the taser again and again on the settler Boaz Albert who’s lying on the floor screaming in pain,” writes on her Facebook page MK Zehava Gal-On, chair of the left wing Meretz party, who has no love lost for the settlement movement. But the level of abuse and brutality on the part of the police in this case has cut through political dividing lines.

A video produced and distributed by the Yitzhar outpost spokesperson’s office shows local resident Boaz Albert being subdued by a team of policemen who arrested him for breaking an administrative restraining order banning him from setting foot in the settlement.

His wife and children are living there. He sneaked in to see them. Somebody called the cops.

In the video, police barge into Albert’s home, the screen goes dark and we hear him screaming in pain. Then a police officer is seen holding a stun gun and threatening to use it against Albert who is begging not to be tasered again, crying out that he’s emphatically not resisting arrest—while one of the cops is saying:”Electricute him already.” Then four police carry Albert out in a manner that could not possibly enable him to resist them – then, in the dark we hear him screaming in agony as some cop apparently shot him full of volts just for the fun of it.

“There is no justification in the world for using this cruel weapon on a man who is not acting violently and does not present danger to the four cops who hover over him and who could easily arrest him without a problem.”

Gal-On said that she is fighting for the rights of settlers against police abuse, just as she’s fighting on behalf of Palestinians who are arrested without trial. She called on the right to join her in condemning both kinds of police violations of people’s civil rights.

Yehudit Katsover and Nadia Matar of “Women in Green” also condemned the “scandalous arrest of Boaz Albert, a resident of Yitzhar, a father of six, in a violent military operation in which security forces shot him and his brother with iron arrows from a Taser gun and wounded him. All this because of Albert’s ‘crime’ of refusing to obey the immoral and anti-democratic edict of expulsion that was given him.”

The Women in Green contend that “these expulsion orders are used solely against Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria and not against Arab stone-throwers nor against the European anarchists that attack soldiers.”

Katsover and Matar call on the “Eretz Israel” lobby MKs to intervene in the case. Meanwhile, Albert has been set free by a district court judge in Lod on friday afternoon.

A demonstration is planned for 10 PM israel time, in the Beit El area, to protest police cruelty against Boaz Albert.


Message from a Man in Black…to a Man of Hate

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I love this video – posted to YouTube around 5 months ago… it’s a message from one Hassidic Jew (representing so many others) to a man of hate (and to so many like him). It was posted before the Jewish holiday of Purim…

Purim is the story of a Persian king, his right hand man who wanted to kill the Jews, a Jewish man and his niece, who becomes the queen. An evil plot… unraveled at the last moment, twisted around to destroy the one who created the plot. It is about justice in the end, but more, it is about the Jewish people and where we put our faith. It is why we defeated Haman, that ancient Persian… and why we will defeat his ancestors – the followers of Ahmadinejad… and today’s “moderate” Iranian president who joined his outgoing colleague just days ago in wishing Israel off the face of this world.

Ari Lesser – you’re great! I hope this video reaches around the world…

The 2013 opening ceremony for the 19th Maccabiah Games got under way on Thursday evening, and for the first time in its 81 years, Jerusalem hosted the “Jewish Olympics”.

This is also the largest Maccabiah in history, with 10,000 athletes from 21 countries participating and 30,000 visitors in the crowd.

Here’s a short 5 minute history of the Maccabiah games in Israel.

Tisha B’Av – The Children Are Ready. Are You? (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

The “9 days” started yesterday, and I keep seeing “how to survive the 9 days” posts, ways to make the best dairy meals, and how to get past Tisha B’Av in one piece.

The real answer lies in this video: The Children Are Ready.

And they are… we need to get past the Kotel, get past the mindset of 2000 years of exile, and look to the future.

The future is within our grasp…we just need to be ready. Are you?

‘Stop Crying and Let the Children Build the Third Temple’ (Video)

Tuesday, July 9th, 2013

Israel’s Temple Institute, which encourages praying on  the Temple Mount and working to build the Third Temple, has released a video production that shows children taking adults out of synagogue on Tisha B’Av to join them to rebuild the Temple.

The Chief Rabbinate of Israel discourages Jews from praying on the Temple Mount because of Halachic issues, while the Temple Institute and many other rabbis have ruled that Jews can ascend to certain areas of the Temple Mount.

Jews around the world are in the traditional Nine Days, the last part of the three-week period of mourning over the destruction of the First and Second Temples, both of which were destroyed in Tisha B’Av, or the Ninth of the Hebrew month of Av that began on Monday.

The Temple Institute has produced a two and a half minute video entitled “The Children are Ready II,” a sequel to last year’s video at this time.

The video shows men sitting on the floor and reciting the Lamentations that are said on Tisha B’Av, while children decide it is time to bring out their tools and get to work to rebuild the Temple instead of only crying over the past.

They march into the synagogue and convince the adults to leave behind their prayer books and come with them.

“Tisha B’Av is not about just mourning; it is about contemplating a world devoid of the Holy Temple, a house of peace and prayer for all nations, and it’s about asking ‘when will the mourning stop?’” said Rabbi Chaim Richman, international director of the Temple Institute.

“Last year, ‘The Children are Ready’ inadvertently outraged the Arab world with the Egyptian government releasing a formal complaint and rebuttal videos made by Hamas and other Islamist organizations,” the Institute commented Monday.

The Palestinian Authority and the entire Arab world have increasingly published propaganda about Jews trying to take over the Temple Mount and rebuild the Temple, and the new video is likely to cause an uproar among Muslims, particularly since the Muslim holy month of Ramadan begins this week.

669 Rescues Downed F-16 Pilots (Video)

Sunday, July 7th, 2013

The Air Force has released video of its 669 search and rescue unit that brought to safety the pilot and navigator of an F-16i training jet whose engines stopped in mid-air Sunday, forcing the two-man team to eject themselves and parachute into the sea as the jet broke up in mid-air.

They had managed to send out a distress call before ejecting from the plane and waited for approximately one hour in the sea until the rescue team brought them out of danger.
