” Hamas has cheated the people of Gaza. It has stolen their schools and hospitals to fire rockets at Israel. It has rigged their homes with explosives. It has forced them into the line of fire. This is Hamas. Share it. “

The Celebrities Risking Worldwide Scorn By Supporting Israel

 

 

 

 

” My new heroes and heroines are not great leaders or deep thinkers. I’m inspired by the courage of comedienne Joan Rivers, radio shock jock Howard Stern, plus a small knot of uncommonly brave celebrities.

  These awesome dudes and dudettes have risked worldwide condemnation by publicly supporting Israel’s right to defend itself from relentless rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists.

“ If you are anti-Israel, you are anti-America,’’ Stern, 60, declared last month on his Sirius XM show. “It’s the only democracy over there. It’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.’’

  Rivers, 81, let ’er rip to TMZ.com. “Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out,’’ she said. “ If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey.” Well put.   Simon Cowell, 54, is the English-born music producer who rose to fame as Mr. Nasty on “American Idol,’’ “Britain’s Got Talent’’ and “The X Factor.’’  

  Last October, he did a mitzvah. In a bit of charity that came to most of the world’s attention only recently, Cowell donated $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces, an organization formed by Holocaust survivors that pays for the education and care of Israeli troops and supports families of slain soldiers.”

Donkey Suicide Bomb Stopped By Israeli Troops In Gaza

 

 

 

 

” Hamas militants sent a donkey laden with explosives on a suicide mission in one of the most unconventional tactics yet seen in the fighting in Gaza, the Israeli army has said.

  Troops said they were forced to open fire on the animal – blowing it up – as it approached their position in the southern city of Rafah, near the Egyptian border.

  The Israeli army had received prior intelligence that militants were going to try to use animals to carry out attacks, according to a press release on the Israeli Defence Forces website.

  Israeli military officials say Friday night’s incident was a variant of what they say is Hamas’ tactic of using “human shields” to carry out “terrorist” activity.

” They used this donkey as a human shield, or an animal shield, if you like,” said Major Arye Shalicar, an army spokesman. “Anything, an animal or an international building, that can help make use of innocent people or international [citizens], they will use it. We see it time and again.” “

  According to Palestinian radio station Bian, the video depicts an Israeli strike targeting Popular Resistance Committees members Usama Hasumi and Muhammad Fasiah.

Meprolight MOR Reflex Sight

 

 

” Since MAC started to review the new IMI Tavor, he has been searching for the perfect optic for the Israeli bullpup. It just so happens that I have a Meprolight MOR on T&E from The Mako Group, the official importer of all the Meprolight optics for the North American market and the optic of choice by IDF Special Forces.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) were one of the first militaries to understand the importance of an optic equipped rifle for every infantryman. The standard reflex sight of the IDF is the Meprolight M21, but a select few in each unit are issued a specialized reflex sight with a built-in laser designator. The first in this new class of sights was the MARS (Multi-purpose Aiming Reflex Sight). The MARS integrated an AA battery-powered red reflex sight, dual laser designators and a tethered pressure switch for activation in a single unit.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

San Antonio Educators Learn To Take Down A Shooter, Save Lives

 

 

 

” SAN ANTONIO — Teachers, administrators and other school workers got physical this weekend at a free self defense course focused on taking down a gunman.

Inside the STW Krav Maga studio on the city’s northwest side, Bridget Lopez crouched behind a barrel and quietly waited. When the mock gunman entered the room, she jumped on him from behind and drove her elbow into the back of his head.

“This system and these seminars have changed my life,” Lopez said, “because I have become more aware.” “

 ISRAEL OKAYS MOBILIZING UP TO 75,000 TROOPS

Israel apparently prepares for a ground invasion of Gaza

Tanks and troops are massing on Israel’s border with Gaza, and on Friday evening, Israel’s cabinet authorized mobilization of up to 75,000 reservists, up from just 16,000 authorized the day before, with 30,000 already reporting for duty in their home districts. These moves are reactions to long-range rockets from Gaza reaching as far as Jerusalem, though without yet creating damage or casualties. But the vulnerability of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem to rocket attacks from Gaza is causing Israel to get panicky.

Recall that in 2006, Israel went to war with Hizbollah in Lebanon, within four hours of the capture of two Israeli soldier, with no plan, and no objective, resulting in total chaos.”

Gaza-Based Hamas Rockets Strike Tel Aviv

Who’s Drone Might It Be ? 

 

  ” An unmanned aircraft was shot down by the Israeli air force Saturday after it crossed the southern region of the country, Reuters reported.

 

 

The report said it is unclear where the aircraft originated. Israel Defense Forces (IDF) tells Fox News the unmanned aircraft did not depart from the Gaza strip. 

The aircraft flew over Israel for less than thirty minutes and did not carry any explosives on board, sources told Fox News. IDF spokesperson Yoav Mordechai said the aircraft was monitored and accompanied by fighter planes throughout its flight and it was possible to shoot it down at any stage.

Israel radio reported that it appeared to be an intelligence gathering drone.”
