Assad Destroys the City of Nawa

Friday, June 13th, 2014

This morning someone sent us a horrifying video from Syria, of people just shooting down and torturing their fellow Syrians on the street, seemingly at random, all the while screaming ‘Alahu Achbar”.

I’m not going to link to it. It is simply too horrible.

Instead, here is a video, captured by IDF security camera of Assad destroying the city of Nawa in Syria on May 16, 2014. It is interlaced with an amateur video that captures the destruction from a close up perspective.

Islamic Jihad Threatens Israel – in Hebrew (+Video)

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

The Islamic Jihad terror organization, responsible for firing the heavy barrage of rockets at Israel over the past 24 hours, published today (Mar. 13) a clip threatening Israel – in Hebrew, under the title “Al-Quds Brigades threaten the state of occupation in Hebrew from inside one of the tunnels.”

The terrorist is allegedly sitting under a rocket pad with rockets aimed at Israel.

“To the coward Zionist army, we at the Quds Brigades are ready for you invasion. If you come you have no choice – you are dead…”, the terrorists reads from a page in garbled Hebrew.

“To the government of Zionist terror, who wish that our rockets will cease [to be fired] against your rockets. Find the moderation.”

“To the Israeli public – do not put your lives as hostages to the rule of your leaders. We invite you to exit our country and find your own,” the terrorist offered the citizens of the State of Israel.

A large portion of the message was not intelligible.

Garin Tzabar: Helping Lone Soldiers Feel At Home In Israel

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

These lone soldiers, hailing from countries including the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Turkey and Azerbaijan arrived in Israel without their families to join the Israel Defense Force and help build the Jewish nation.  ’Garin’ means seed in Hebrew but can also refer to a group of people who collectively immigrated to Israel and ‘tzabar’ refers to the ‘sabra’ cactus fruit which is prickly on the outside but soft and sweet on the inside, a euphemism to describe Israelis.

The Garin Tzabar program is in charge of bringing these lone soldiers to a kibbutz or Israeli city, providing them with an adopted family, a Garin community that supports them throughout their army service and Hebrew classes to assist their immersion into the IDF.  Several months from now the new recruits will begin to serve in the Israeli Army.  The Garin Tzabar  ensures lone soldiers receive support and attention on their birthdays, during holidays, Shabbat, and their days off .

The State of Israel officially welcomed this year’s Garin Tzabar participants during a special ceremony held at Tel Aviv University. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu  gave a video greeting praising these young Jewish men and women and  numerous other government officials attended the event.

MK Sofa Landver, who addressed the group, stated, “We are here to receive the immigrants and the soldiers in our country, the most wonderful country in the world. It’s you who have come to serve and defend Israel. You will change the world.” A representative of Nefesh B’Nefesh added, “It’s not just a plane ride, it’s the destination and that’s Israel. Enjoy your new life.”

Netta Gelb, a new Garin Tzabar participant, was born in the Israeli city of Netanya and has spent the past 15 years growing up in Canada. Although she has Israeli relatives,  she is leaving behind her parents and siblings.  Gelb expressed the excitement many Garin members felt when she said, “I have been really looking forward to this for a long time.”

Michael Kosky, another Garin Tzabar participant, added, “We have come here to play our chapter in Jewish history. I am part of this program. Good luck to every one here.”  A lone soldier already serving in the IDF named Ariella, who hails from an Argentine family and grew up in both America and Israel told the audience that she holds dear the “values of loyalty to the state, its people, and the Tzabar members” and said to the new recruits “If you live together, you will learn a lot.”
