On November 13, the streets of the Al Sabra neighborhood of Gaza City were flooded with raw sewage, after a nearby waste water treatment plant had been shut down.

We’re facing a potential epidemic of biblical proportions here. Gaza is not separated from the rest of Israel when it comes to elements of the environment. Their sea—gorged in their raw sewage—is our sea. People and animals constantly move out of Gaza and into our part of the geography. We must fix this, no matter the cost.

An outbreak of cholera would be much more expensive and complicated to fix.

Do we really want dead bodies piling up and festering in the streets of Gaza? Forget about the political damage, start thinking Plague.

    What a shame BUT what about these moooslims KILLING JEWISH BABIES…………….

  2. Maybe it’s time for HAMAS to show some real leadership and fix this.

  3. ARE YOU KIDDING ???????????????

  4. Uh, yeah, I'm OK with biblical retribution on these Jew-haters.

  5. Uh, yeah, I'm OK with biblical retribution on these Jew-haters.

  6. Anthony Kent says:

    Maybe they can divert some of the $100m a year tunnel building budget to sorting it out.

  7. Wallowing in their own filth. That's poetic justice for ya.

  8. Israel bombed Palestinian's sewer treatment plants and that is why sewage is running in the streets. What hatefulness does this and then laughs at it and blames the victems?

  9. Israel bombed Palestinians sewer treatment plants. Are you not aware of this? Not if you only read the radical Jewish Press. Where does your cruelty come from?

  10. Tunnel building is necessary for medical and food supplies and basically everything since they cannot travel and purchase what they need due to the Israeli blockades. Palestinians live in the largest open-air prison in the world. It has been condemned by the World Court. The US gives lip service only and are just as culpable.

  11. This, coming from the highly credible Jenika Sharon, the very same neo-Nazi troll who only yesterday insisted with a straight face that Avigail Tzur — the Jewish baby stoned by Arabs in Jerusalem — had never been stoned at all.

  12. People who, unlike Jenika Sharon, are interested in actual facts, may be interested to know that Israel has incredibly (and idiotically) BUILT many sewage treatment plans — using Israeli taxpayers' money — for the "Palestinians". In one recent case, here's how the "Palestinians" thanked Israel for doing so:

  13. Yechiel Baum says:

    Pity they dont' bathe in it and clean themselves up.

  14. ….and until we can change our attitudes, there will never be peace in the Middle East.

  15. From the looks of these exchanges, I can see what is holding back the Peace Process

  16. Jenika Sharon. There are truckloads of food and medical supplies going into Gaza every day and even the granddaughter of Hanie(the Hamas chief) was treated in Israel. You are a one eyed biased person who expects people, who persistently proclaim they want to kill every jew, to be trated other then a criminal which uses to be kept in prison or in othere words under guard to protect those whom he is a threat to, everywhere in the world. You should keep helping the poor and homeless in your nation(you doing a good job there) and moreover, give it back to the I
    ndians if you would stick to what you demand of Israel.

It’s stories like this that make one lose faith in the police and legal system. (Video in Hebrew, but the attack is understandable in any language).

There’s something truly inspiring about Haredi soldiers, who willingly choose to participate and give back to Israel, despite their community’s pressure to not join the army, and all the while, not compromising an inch on their religious observance.

A Jerusalem woman is trying to hold on to her umbrella while withdrawing some cash at a Meah Shearim ATM, Sunday, March 9, 2014. The rain appeared out of the blue (which is how rain should), after a warm week that started to feel like summer. Well, it don’t feel like summer no more. Last […]

Rabbi Meir Mazuz (seen visiting a synagogue in Crown Heights, Brooklyn) declared in a public Internet psak that it is legal for a Jew to go up to temple Mount.

Pat Condell has a new video out, so, sit back, have fun. By the way, Message to Offended Muslims should not be confused with Message to Off Handed Muslims. Also, I’d love to hear what he has to say about Haredim.

The description that came with this picture says: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks with American actor Bette Midler during an event at the house of Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan in Hollywood on March 6, 2014.

An Israeli female soldier (because they’re better at removing babies from their homes) evacuates a baby from a settlement in Judea and Samaria some time in the recent past. I’m thinking, if the baby was angry enough, couldn’t he evacuate in return, right there in her arms? Imagine the same picture, except with a settler […]
