War Videos

That you just don't see elsewhere. I don't know who this person is, but he or she, via Youtube, has some of the best videos that I have seen.

See Green Helmet direct the "Tragedy of Qana" This is from Germany.
He also has films of "innocent civilians" and their missles.
And many more.
Watch and learn.
(I love his titles)
He has 18 different films.

Check 'em out.

This is what we know about Qana:
Somewhere around 1am Israel bombed a building that had been in the area of previous missle launchings by Hezzbullah.
Prior to the bombing, Israel had warned the citizens that they area would be understrike. They allowed several days to pass, to give the citizens of Qana time to leave, before they started bombing.

We know that about 28 bodies were retrieved from the rubble. Mostly women and children. Apparently several were handicapped.

We know, if we can trust the sources, that several people managed to make it out of the building alive and that at least some were relatives of those still in the building. That there were others around who were at the very least known to those who were trapped inside the building.

We know the report came at 7am or so that the building collapsed.

We know all this.

And the point I think most people are missing is whilte it matters who brought the building down and whether the people inside were killed that day, or were planted by Hezzbullah or were killed by Hezzbullah or were deliberately forced into the building in anticipation of an attack, the scene was staged.

The photos speak volumes but they aren't telling the story many want to hear.
They are showing rescue workers who seem bent on showing the "evil" of Israel but who seem much less interested in finding the live bodies beneath the rubble.

Buildings collapse all the time. People are often trapped beneath the rubble for days and days. Yet here we have a dead baby parade. The same rescuers are seen toting children about and crying and yelling and holding them up for the cameras. Not just the person who pulled them out, but often the rescuer, dead child clasped lovingly in his arms, is accompanied by others, walking behind him or alongside him. Why? Why isn't the person back there digging or trying to help pull rubble out of the way so others can work faster? Why isn't he standing in readiness to whisk a LIVING child to the ambulance. Why are the stretchers being employed to cart the dead to the ambulance when there are still people waiting to be found, perhaps alive, when it is shown that they are able to carry the child in their arms? Why are they going along such a long road with a dead child, wearing themselves and decreasing their helpfulness and readiness to assist the living? Why were the dead bodies placed in ambulances? Why weren't they placed alongside the building to wait until the rescuers had to quit or left to be bagged and brought out by others to refrigerated cars?

Did the rescuers know there was no one alive to hurry for? Or did they not care?

That to me is the essential question.
Because if my child was trapped in the rubble and I saw Green Helmet and White T-Shirt doing the dead baby parade I would be mighty sore and Green Helmet and White T-Shirt would find themselves mighty sore as well.

The Israelinsider on Qana

And why it might just be another episode of Palliwood.

This blog also makes some great points.

Um, if you are rescuing someone don't you try to get them help as quickly as possible?

Australian Man Documents Truth

Here are photos smuggled out of Lebanon by a journalist showing how Hezzbullah forces use residential areas as their launching points endangering the citizens of Lebanon as well as of course taking aim at Israel.

I don't understand how the world can blame Israel for striking back at those who are trying to kill her. Yes children and women were killed. Who put them there? Who is to blame?

Israel is fighting against terrorist whose only purpose is destruction. They don't care who gets killed or injured. They put their most precious gifts in the line of fire and then scream when they are killed, secretly glad for more ammunition for their propaganda war. A win-win situation for the terrorist---if the world allows it.

To stop this war before these murderers are caught would be like dousing part of the fire with water and part with gasoline.

I've no love of war; but I do not want to see my grandsons having to fight the same fight because the world refuses to stand against evil. The job is in our hands. Either help us eliminate this evil or stand back and let us do it.

Eliminating the terrorist is the only way.

Don't buy into their propaganda. Demand that Hezzbullah stop using their citizens as shields. Do not condemn Israel when mistakes are made or when innocent human beings are given up as sacrifices to their cause. Harsh as it may seem pity will lead to more, not less of these deaths, for they have found their weapon in the soft hearts of others and will continue to use it...using children, their own or the children of their neighbors, as nothing more than things.

Stop the pity, condemn the maddness by condemning the terrorist and they will stop, having lost their weapon, having in fact their weapon turned against them. And children at least, will be a little bit safer.

Another Video....

Many have asked, if the war in Lebanon and in the Gaza strip was over three soldiers. Maybe it is over one terrorist, Samir Kuntar, the viscious murderer of a four year old girl who was first subject to the witnessing the murder of her father.This man seems to have a point.

Bring Me His Head on a Silver Platter

We were talking, a group of women, about the war, would any group of Israelis not talk about the war at some point? And one of the women said "I wouldn't mind being brought Nashralla's head on a silver platter."

I heartily agreed; at first. Then I thought--- how much better it would be for us and the world to see him charged as the mass murderer he is---costing the lives of Jewish citizens and Lebanese citizens. How much better for the world to see him put on trial and evidence brought out to bear against his vilness, that everyone sees his cruelty, his inhumanity not only to his enemies, but to those whom he supposedly loves. How vile the man that would deliberately place babies and the elderly, the weak and the poor in the way of danger as a publicity stunt, for that is all it really is to him. A way to get him accolades, a way to turn the world against Israel. Those who are wise will protest his actions and demand he be punished for his evil.

Too many however fall into his plan and, either because they are fools or because they simply hate Israel make demands on Israel that is contrary to her health.

Those who want to protect the lives of the innocent will wage a protest, and a continous protest, against the tactics of Hamas and Hezzbullah for the deliberate attacks against civilian populations and the continued use of their own civilians as shields to launch attacks.

Bwak, bwak, bwak

Omar Bakri, who felt 9/11 was something to celebrate, and who felt that it was okay to take women and CHILDREN hostage "if it were for a good cause" doesn't like danger himself.

He left Britain for Lebanon and now with the war and all the poor man just doesn't feel safe. He might die in the crossfire. He wants Britain to save him. Poor guy. His family is very worried about him.

My heart is bleeding for the dear soul.

More pearls of wisdom from the OBM.

Oh and check out this interview...

The British don't like him, and it seems that even the Syrians don't like him.

Just Trying To

Stay on top of the news and keep up with my boys.

The Agent, who is 19 and in Nahal Charedi, the religous arm of the Israeli army, was woken up early in the morning ON SHABBAT and, together with his unit, moved to a different base. They don't move Nahal Charedi on Shabbat unless great need, but he isn't near any of the fighting yet. The other son, The Wit has been moved up north, but not near the border.

It is odd; I hear nothing and see nothing where I live (close to Jerusalem.) It is all happening somewhere else at the moment and I feel very guilty that my life is continuing as normal and others are suffering so much.Many in the north are living in a shelter or remaining close to home and shelters which makes life extremely difficult, especially during the summer time when children should be able to run free.

Instead we are bottled down in a war that could be over 1, 2, 3. Return our soldiers, stop firing on us, dismantle the terrorist organizations.'

We pull back and out.

End of story.

I am glad that the foreign nationalists are being evacuated. I want as many innocents safe as possible. It also makes it easier for Israel to defeat her enemies. The less innocents that could get in the way, or be used as human sheilds or be deliberately killed in a publicity ploy by the Hizbullah the better.

On the actual homefront, homefront, we are enduring an attack of our own. ANTS. Blasted creatures. We have sprayed but the spray is ineffective. We don't want the heavy duty high powered knock em dead kind of spray (ie having an exterminator come in) because the reports on such measures seem to indicate a need for US to leave the house for at least a week. Three days was not enough to avoid the smell according to one family. And we have the cat and kittens to think about. So we are attacking them in bits and pieces, hoping they'll figure out we aren't going to let them alone. Natural repellent ideas anyone? The kinds that will leave the kitties to grow in peace? Barring that; anyone want to host a family of four to six, depending on when the boys are home, plus four cats?

Israel's Response

I am actually finding myself admiring Olmert for his actions; I detest the man in general and feel most of his policies are wrong, this is the way to go. Don't stop until our son of Israel is back safe in Israel, and do not release any of those who are responsible for his kidnapping and death's of our other two soliders, who have left behind grieving relatives and friends.

3 more dead

Three more Jews were murdered late last night by an Arab monster dressed as a religous Jew. He exploded himself in the car, killing an older couple and another woman.

So what is Israel's choice when the world keeps holding us back from defending ourselves? Hamas is so cheerful about this lastest murder; what will the world say? What will Olmert and the leftist do? Give the Palestinians more land and promise us it will, eventually, (someday when we are all dead) lead to peace? When will the Palestinains actually be held responsible for the crimes they commit?

You Really Have to Feel Sorry For This Mom

Sorry she IS a mom. She doesn't deserve the title.

In spite of PA pledges not to incite, an interview broadcast last week featured the mother of Wafa Al-Bas, the 21-year-old Arab woman from Gaza who was arrested at the Erez Crossing in June 2005 wearing a 20-pound (9 kg) bomb under her clothes.

The PA TV interview with Al-Bas' parents, which aired on February 20th, features her mother saying the event was hard for her - not because her daughter was on a suicide mission, but because she was arrested on her way to carry it out.

These children are being raised to become monsters by parents who are monsters. Yet we give them land (which they destroyed), equipment to build themselves up, (destroyed) and we give them passage into our land for jobs, and health care.

All so they can send their kids out to us to kill us. Men, women, elderly, children.
On buses, in schools, in grocery stores and restaurants.

Death(their own, ours, yours)= joys.

They worship death.
How is it possible to make peace?

Yet, there is great fear they may starve if the world does't pay them. So the EU is going to step in and help them pay for their needs, cause they sure don't know how to do it themselves. They are too busy spending the money they have on killing their children and killing us. If they have money to pay for killing is happiness programs they have the money to pay their bills.

Yo! Stop helping them; force them to take care of themselves and maybe mass murder and mayhem will go way down. Or they'll starve themselves and make really bad bombs. One or the other.

So Once Again the Question Is

How did leaving Gush Katif (leaving many of the refugees homeless even now) bring us more security?

For that matter, how have the Palestinian people benifited?

More Victims of Hate

My husband's cousin has been in Israel for three weeks now on a learning vacation. She has been too busy with her studies until today for us to get together. It is a fast day, and normally I would have just stayed home, but it has been over two years since we have seen this branch of our family and a little thing like a bit of hunger and thirst wasn't going to keep us away.

So we met in a museum and then went to their hotel, enjoying the breezes by the pool for a little while before heading off to their room to see the beautiful view of the old city beyond their hotel window. What a wonderful sight to see on a Shabbat morning I opined.

We talked about so many little things; politics and family, how the move effected our children and ourselves. A nice quiet family visit, and then my husband headed off to work and I herded the Monkey, the only child to come with us, home.

By this time I was a bit tired and washed out, so I flopped onto the couch and flipped through the television listing, finally settling on the news.

Grandparents Killed in a Roadside Attack.

A couple heading home after Shabbat, who had been on a visit like the one I had just had, a nice Shabbat visit with family. They get back in their car and never make it home.

And Sharon threatens to get tough. Again.

It was Shabbat so I didn't hear the news about the bombings in Egypt till just now.

My heart goes out to all those who are suffering.

The war on terror must complete eliminate the terrorists and that mode of thinking. The world can not continued to be held hostage to fear.

Another suicide bombing. This time in Sharon mall; two killed, 20 injured.

Update as of this morning (I posted this last night)

3 killed, 90, some critically, injured.

Yet Sharon wants to keep going with his disengagement plan.
Sounds smart. Give them more land, closer to the heart of Israel, from which they can launch their attacks.

I Got Applause for this One

And it is so dang simple to make!

About 6-10 Tomatoes, sliced into thin circles
About 6-10 Hard boiled eggs, sliced into circles
Pepper, salt, cumin
Olive oil and cider vinegar.
Fresh Basil.

Line the bottom of a glass dish or large glass salad bowl with a portion of the tomatoes. Lay a portion of the eggs on top. Salt, pepper, sprinkle with a dash of cumin, oil and vinegar. Toss in a few leaves of the fresh basil between the egg/tomato slices.
Repeat till you have used up all the eggs and tomatoes. It all depends on how thin you slice and how big your tomatoes are!
Let sit for a few hours, covered.

Really, it is that simple, and it was a smashing success at our Shalosh Seudot gathering.

Father of 7 Murdered by Terrorist

Shlomo Miller, 50, a father of 7 was murdered today by Arab terrrorist. The murderer was a member of the Palestinian Authority's Preventative Security Force.

THe funeral for Shlomo Miller is now; 4pm. Jewish burials normally take place within twenty-four hours of death. As tonight is Shabbat, the burial is being held today.

I can not imagine the agony of this Shabbat for the family. As I sit with my loved ones tonight it will be hard not to think about the pain this family will be going through; who to say Kiddush (the blessing over the wine)? Make Hametzi(blessing over the bread? ) The pain of the family as they gather to welcome in the Shabbat Queen, but who is there to comfort the widow?

May Hashem grant them comfort, and may the children grow to a world of peace.

via Arutz Sheva.

I am sorry for leaving bad news after all.

I pray the British Journalist will be released safely and soon.
