Wounded first by Terrorists, then by Sharon's Thugs

In 2001 Sergey Zvezdin was a teenager with dreams of becoming an athelete. In 2001 Sergey was riding on an Egged bus on the way to get a haircut when a Hamas suicide bomber detonated a bomb killing 15 of those on the bus and leaving 38 with severe injuries. Sergei was one of those 38. He suffered a concussion, a punctured eardrum, missing teeth and a piece of sharpnel that lodged itself deep in the tissues of the face, close to his brain. Israeli surgeons despaired of removing the fragment and Sergei experienced blinding headaches, he could not speak properly and he was unable to close his mouth or eat. American surgeons performed an operation on Sergei free of charge cutting through his skull working to remove the fragment. His damaged eardrum and missing teeth and other injuries were repaired as best as possible. Sergey returned to Israel and resumed his life again. He joined the IDF and Sergey Zvezdin, whose last name means 'of the stars,' contemplated his dreams of becoming

The scam....

"There is one particular gole that I want to achive. That gole, is getting a hier education. By a hier education, I mene going to college or university for sevrel years and excelling in the particular subjects that I think I'm good at." (Benny, 19) This is supposed to be, an organization that is supposedly dedicated to helping transitition ex-frum people into the real world doing this worst imitation of fake mispelling. Supposedly poor Benny can't spell 'goal', yet he can spell 'education.' He can't spell 'mean', yet he can spell 'particular,' and he can't spell 'higher' but he can spell 'education.' Seems like couldn't find a test subject who was ex-frum who is actually english impaired. They should spend more time on the internet. The organization's listed phone number which is supposed for Malkie Schwartz actually turns out to be listed for a Marcia Ramirez. Anyone wanting t

The Withdrawals have only begun

The EU envoy to the Middle East, Mark Otte, said in an interview appearing this weekend that Israel's recent uprooting of Jewish communities is a model for the rest of Samaria, Judea and Jerusalem. Otte dismissed statements by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon that Israel will retain large blocs of Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria in any permanent arrangement with the Palestinian Authority. Such commitments, the European Union envoy asserted, are nothing more than "spin" intended for internal Israeli consumption. In June, Mr. Otte defended European Union contacts with Hamas representatives, despite the organization being listed as a terrorist organization in EU countries, by saying that "if they are duly elected in free and fair elections under international supervision, you have to know what to do with elected representatives."

Fighting Terror with Lasers and Myths

It is no coincidence that as Iran is developing its nuclear capability, North Korea continues to press into the nuclear age and China has made explicit threats once again about using nuclear weapons against American cities, that a new program has been rolled out. A junior version of Star Wars that features lasers mounted on jets supposedly capable of shooting down ICBM's in their boost phase. While the new laser which fuses solid state and liquid lasers appears to be a significant technological advance, the problem is that the war on terror cannot be won and the United States cannot be protected by lasers and myths. It was not Star Wars that brought down the USSR and the dubious threat of new defensive weapons cannot and will not prevent the advance of new threats. Ultimately such weapons are merely high tech versions of Maginot and Bar-Lev lines, fortifications that cannot stop or even deter a genuinely aggressive foe. The United States is losing the War on Terror and it is facing

Thanks to Bush and Sharon, it's been a very good year for terrorism

Like a finely aged wine in the wineglass of a viniter terrorists can savor the aroma of this year as the forces battling Islamic terrorism are increasingly in disarray and ceding ground as the terrorists count their gains in land and dead. Two world leaders who were thought to be aggressively leading the War on Terror, American President George W. Bush and Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon have not only turned out to be paper tigers but are increasingly turning on their own people and allies in order to appease terrorists. Bush and Sharon who early on seemed to be strong fighters against terrorism when they brought the war home to terrorists with invasions of enemy held territories, have become the poster children for appeasement instead. It is as if in the middle of the Battle of Normandy, Churchill had looked around, put out his trademark cigar and announced that there was no hope of winning this thing and we would just have to find some middle ground for dealing with Hitler. This

Middle Eastern dictators the US supports

The United States government is strongly and firmly opposed to tyranny, except when the tyrants are allied to the policies of this administration. The United States in the strongest possible langauge condemns ethnic cleansing except when it is the ethnic cleansing of Jews. The United States unambigiously condemns fradulent elections, repression of political opponents and any suppression of human rights except when such are convenient to our policies. Now let us run the flag up the pole and see what salutes.

Demolished Jewish towns to be renamed after Terrorists

Agent France Presse is reporting that the PA is considering what to name the various towns they plan to build on the rubble of the Jewish towns whose residents were expelled. PA officials have said one town will definetly be named after Yassir Arafat. The nest of terrorist spawn that rises over the ruins of Kfar Darom may be named after Hamas leader Sheikh Yassin and Atzmona may be named after a suicide bomber. It is sad however that the Palestinians are neglecting to name a town after the man who truly made all this possible, Ariel Sharon. Perhaps somewhere between Arafat City and Yassin Township and Sharonville, they can also find a place for Beilinsgard and Peres Hills and Kfar Lapid and Kiryat Eliyashev and of course New Rice City. It is not after all the terrorists who made this day possible but their enablers in the ranks of the politicians of America and Israel who brought about the terrorist's latest victory.

One Final Disengagement Remains

The Prime Minister paused leaning forwards in his chair. Around him microphones were being arranged and cameras positioned. Channel 1 and Channel 2 and Army Radio and many more foreign reporters had come. This was not entirely usual but then his speech would be entirely unique and of integral importance. The speech had been extensively prepared and written for him. It had been tested on selected audiences but still he knew it would be a difficult one to make. He leaned into the microphone. "Fellow Citizens of the State of Israel, My brothers and sisters. We have fought together in battles, lived and worked together in one country as one nation. I come today with a great sadness in my heart to deliver a speech to you as significant as Ben Gurion's declaration of independence. As you know we have struggled for many years with scourge of terrorism only to watch our children die. We have fought to exist in a hostile area surrounded by countries determined to consider us thei

Two Decrees - One Date

" Based on the Law for Implementation of the Disengagement Plan 5765/2005, and in accordance with the decision of the government of Israel and the order of the prime minister, you are required to evacuate your homes and leave the territory of the Gaza Strip by Motzaei Tisha B'Av (14/08/2005) at 24:00. From that time on, the phase of "voluntary" evacuation will end, the checkpoint at the entrance to the Gaza Strip will be closed, and the entry of civilians will not be permitted (rather only their exit), since from that time, the 14/08/2005 at midnight, presence in the Gaza Strip is not legal." General Dan Harel " Therefore, we, with the counsel and advice of prelates, great noblemen of our kingdoms, and other persons of learning and wisdom of our Council, having taken deliberation about this matter, resolve to order the said Jews and Jewesses of our kingdoms to depart and never to return or come back to them or to any of them. And concerning this we command

We Sang on Tisha Bav - A fast of vigils

The great yellow digital clock and thermometer on the skyscraper read 96 degrees. The actual heat was even greater. The burning sun created a patch of daylight inside the wooden barricades like a magnifying glass over an ant and below the tall buildings we looked like ants indeed. We may have looked like ants but we did not feel like ants. Opposite us, both geographically and politically, the Israeli consulate on the 13th floor showed no visible life as we prayed. We prayed for the soldiers of Tzahal, soon to be misused on the terrible duty of expelling their fellow Jews from their home. We prayed for Medinat Yisrael, the nation whose leader was misguiding and misleading it. We read the prayers of former Sephardi Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu for Gush Katif which had been recited at rallies in Eretz Yisrael. We recited Tehilim spelling out Gush Katif as to the side a handful of Neturei Karta scowled under a Palestinian flag. They had been barred from every Jewish community and no

Hiroshima and Nagasaki: when Justice was a Bomb

As the 60th anniversary of Hiroshima approaches so do the theatrics typically associated with that event and the two mythologies of World War II that still haunt our history. First is the lie that the atom bomb was a horrific atrocity. Secondly that Japan was a victim of the bomb. The anti-war activists who only protests wars in which America fights a non-Western nation and see America as the source of all evil in the world are gearing up for it. Signs hang featuring the mushroom cloud beneath the slogan, 'Never Again.' It is a despicable enough form of Holocaust revisionism to transfer the slogan used against the Holocaust to defend the allies of its perpetrators. But such is the revisionism of the left. The creation of the mythology of the atomic bomb is a key element in the arsenal of the left in demonizing and delegitimizing America as the only nation to have used an atom bomb in warfare. It is intended to make Americans fearful and doubtful of the necessary actions the

A Balance of Terror, a Balance of Fates

"The moment of truth has arrived," Netanyahu said. "At the moment of truth, a man - especially a leader - must ask himself: 'What are you doing, what do you stand for, what are you fighting for?'" The three girls who had been arrested and detained by the Sharon regime, most prominently 14 year old Chaya Belogorodsky who had been the subject of rallies and outrage on both the left and the right are to be freed. And since nothing in this world occurs without balance, three more have been indefinetly jailed, on administrative detention, without benefit of trial. A tactic typical of tyrannical regimes. Even as the Sharon regime is raising more roadblocks and dedicating the efforts of soldiers and police to stopping Jews from entering Gush Katif, area roadblocks have gone down that allowed the terrorists to carry out a shooting attack wounding a 10 year old boy. As Al Aqsa, which was and likely is still funded by rhe PA, claims credit for the attack, as terrorist

Sharon announces new 'Victory through Retreat" plan

Addressing the nation Prime Minister Ariel Sharon gave new details of his plan for defeating Palestinian terrorism. Here is what he said. "My Brothers and Sisters, For many years we have suffered in the grip of terrorists who have murderered our loved ones, set off bombs in our streets and cities and murdered mothers and children together. I speak to you now to announce that we have a plan for defeating terrorism. A plan of which the withdrawal from Gush Katif is but the first of many steps that will ensure a secure state for ourselves and our children. The plan is called 'Victory through Retreat.' In the past the Palestinians have attempted to force us to retreat through terrorism. We will retreat on our own to show that terrorism has no power over us and that only our government has the power to retreat and drive out Israelis out of their homes and no other. In the past the Israeli people have feared Palestinian terror as the greatest threat to their homes and loved ones

The New Prisoners of Zion

" They are now being asked to relinquish these accomplishments for the greater good." - Israeli Foreign Ministy press release on the Expulsion " All for the Greater Good. " - motto inscribed over the entrance of a Soviet Gulag The New Prisoners of Zion are not in Russian jails anymore. They do not sit in cells in the Lubyanka or work in the Soviet gulags in Omsk, Archangelsk or Vorkuta. The New Prisoners of Zion are not imprisoned in foreign lands for wishing to reach Zion but in Zion itself for wishing to hold on to it, against the will of the Mapai inheritors of the philosophy and tactics of the USSR. Vitaly Vovnoboy, who had himself come out of the USSR was arrested for the crime of owning a website that encouraged non-violent civil disobedience. Likud Party forms meant to be filed with the purpose of removing Sharon from the leadership of the Likud Party were confiscated from him and returned only after the deadline for submitting them had passed. 15 of the form

A Criminal Law: Sharon's Israel drifts towards Tyranny

“If the police estimates that the crowds that will arrive in Sderot might endanger the Disengagement plan, then it will be legitimate to stop the protesters, even at the early stages of their trip,” Attorney General Mazuz said Sunday afternoon. There is a crucial distinction between two types of nations, one ruled by a justice system in which law is the basis for an evenhanded system that applies to all and the other in which law is a tool for enforcing the policies of a government and suppressing political opposition. The Attorney General quoted above ruled that buses and cars suspected of going to a protest that may make the implementation of a government policy more difficult can be stopped. This is not a legal reason, it is a purely political reason. Chaya Belogorodsky, a slight, fair-haired and devout 14-year-old girl, is considered such a grave "danger to public peace" that Israel's highest judges dare not let her out of prison and back to her home in a Jewish

Embedded with the Expellers

Traditionally embedded reporters are meant to accompany troops into battle, meanwhile the Jerusalem Post has a logo complete with military insignia for a reporter accompanying troops to throw families out of their homes by force, as if this was something glamorous or heroic. The Jerusalem Post which despite running some excellent collumns by Glick have joined the rest of the Israeli media in acting as cheerleaders for expulsion, is now boasting of a reporter accompanying troops as 'embedded' as if he was heading into a war zone or under fire instead of to beat fathers, mothers and children out of their homes.
