Children Wade in Gaza Raw Sewage

Gaza children wade in raw sewage in December 2013 -- well before the start of Operation Protective Edge and while construction supplies were being shipped into the region. Hamas was not taking care of its civilians; it was too busy building its terrorist infrastructure to attack Israel.

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. Their sewage treatment plan is offline since Egypt cut off smuggling of subsidized fuel from the Sinai and the Hamas govt is too cheap to buy fuel at standard prices from Israel – they would rather invest in terror tunnels and rockets than their own people’s welfare.

  4. ARE YOU KIDDING ???????????????

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

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

  7. Anthony Kent says:

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

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

  9. 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?

  10. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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:

  14. Yechiel Baum says:

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

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

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

  17. 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.

The latest Latma – HaKol Shafit, with English subtitles. I recommend watching the Any Boycott, and Hanin Zoabi segments.


The worsening housing crisis, the worsening Iran crisis and other problems that Israeli politicians can’t seem to solve — and with Knesset elections taking place a mere two years after the previous ones — are causing many Israelis to be cynical about the political process. The voter has a desire to see something different, but will they be disappointed again? Dr. Seth Frantzman, op-ed editor of the Jerusalem Post, joins Yishai in-studio to discuss the state of the Israeli electorate.

How can the most famous man in history also be the most humble? Why are we commanded to remember to destroy the memory of Amalek (Israel’s arch nemesis)? These and other conundrums are the topics of discussion between Rabbi Mike Feuer and Yishai on the segment that gets you ready for Shabbat.

Anglo Vote Top View

Here is the raw footage from The Anglo Vote.


Dr. Ran Baratz — the founding editor of the conservative, Hebrew-language Web magazine MIDA, and the director of the Tikvah Fund’s Political Thought program — joins Yishai in-studio. Baratz analyzes the “new Israeli,” whose identity is formed in a mixed and tolerant religious environment; the rare “new Arab,” who accepts Israel; and PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to stop Iran’s nuclear ambitions and his call to European Jewry to immigrate to Israel. Then, VOI’s Raoul Wootliff joins Yishai to share audio clips from the latest English-language press event, during which Zionist Union party leader Isaac Herzog shared his vision for an alternative to PM Netanyahu.

Someone stole the word Zionism, and Natan wants it back…

VOI political correspondent Raoul Wootliff joins Yishai in-studio to analyze Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett’s English-language press conference. Then, Israeli Ambassador to the Pacific Islands, Marshall Islands and Micronesia Michael Ronen talks about Israel’s efforts to help that region’s fresh-water shortage. Finally, Alex Selsky — the newest and one of the youngest members of the Jewish Agency’s Board of Governors and the CEO of the World Forum of Russian-Speaking Jewry — joins Yishai to discuss Russian Jews in Western countries and their impact on the future of Israel.

Bamba, the iconic Israeli peanut snack, not only tastes good, but it’s apparently also the reason why Israeli kids have one-tenth the rate of peanut allergies compared to children from the UK and other countries with similar genetic backgrounds (er, Jews). The New England Journal of Medicine reports that keeping young children away from peanuts […]

Makor Rishon/NRG journalist Zvika Klein joins Yishai in-studio to talk about his shocking new video — “Ten Hours Walking as a Jew in Paris.” Klein discusses creating the video and what it teaches about the state of Jews in Europe. Then, Joel Pollak, the editor-in-chief of Breitbart.com, tells Yishai that “the fact that there is a rift between Obama and Israel does not mean there is rift between America and Israel.”
Finally, Yishai defends PM Netanyahu’s right to speak before Congress, and compares the Israeli leader to Queen Esther — using the Bible story as an example of the Jews acting to defend themselves.

Nir Barkat is the mayor of Jerusalem, but Bill de Blasio is the mayor of the city with the largest Jewish community.

It’s Adar. Time for Purim…

Dr. Ronen Bergman, senior military and intelligence affairs analyst for Yedioth Ahronoth, contributing writer for the New York Times and author of five best-selling books — including “The Secret War with Iran” — joins Yishai to discuss the massive blast that killed Lebanese PM Rafik Hariri and 21 others around his motorcade. Listen to the story and controversy! Then, on Spiritual Cafe, Rabbi Mike Feuer joins Yishai to discuss the Biblical blueprint of Tabernacle vestments, the month of Adar, which we just entered — that which symbolizes Jewish victory — and finding God, even when you’re down.

Yishai hosts a special event at the Psagot Winery, to celebrate the rights of the Jewish People to Judea and Samaria, and the support Israel enjoys from friends abroad. Listen to inspiring talks by leading personalities, including Rabbi Avi Gisser, MK Yariv Levine, MK Danny Danon, Danny Dayan and, of course, Governor Mike Huckabee, who jammed with Israeli music icon Yonatan Razel.
