    Shin Bet reveals Hamas operative and son arrested for killing of Baruch Mizrahi; Bennett: This proves prisoner releases should be eradicated. An Israeli military court on Monday indicted a Hamas terrorist – released in the 2011 Gilad Shalit deal – for killing an Israeli man and wounding two children in the Passover eve terrorist attack near the Tarkumia checkpoint in the West Bank. Hamas member Ziad Awawde, 42, was arrested in May by the Shin Bet (Israel Security Service) and police commandos, on suspicion that he had stood by the side of the Route 35 shooting at passing vehicles, including...

    Two videos in one - action and reaction - October and November 2012. The first video is about two weeks before the second. In the first video, Hamas released footage of its militants launching rockets from what appear to be apartment buildings in the Gaza Strip, close to the border with Israel. The second video is two weeks later, showing the apparent Israeli retaliation, in which a pinpoint laser guided bomb, or a missile takes out the car carrying a military commander of Hamas, Ahmed Jabari, who is alleged to have masterminded rocket attacks against Israel, including against civilian areas....
  • Saudi Cleric: $100,000 to Kidnap IDF Soldiers

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 26/10/11 | Gavriel Queenann
    Saudi Arabia's controversial Islamist and preacher, Sheikh Awad al Qarni, offered a bounty of $100,000 for the kidnapping of any IDF in 'Palestine' who can be used as leverage to force Israel to release more terrorists from its prisons. Qarni said on his Facebook page, "This award is in response to the allocation of funds to settlers who kill Palestinians prisoners released." Qarni claimed his initiative, highly praised by many in Saudi Arabia, was a response to reports in Israel's media that funds had been allocated by 'settlers' to kill terrorist Mustafa Muslimani, who was released under the deal for...

    Come and Get Your Jewish Life Here, Cheap! By Norma Zager "I do not believe in loving enemies; I have pretty hard work to love my friends. Neither do I believe in revenge. No man can afford to keep the viper of revenge in his heart. But I believe in justice, in self-defense." Robert Ingersoll Just days after the Gilad Shalit homecoming, Israel and Egypt struck a deal to swap 25 Egyptian prisoners in Israeli custody for one U.S. Israeli dual national Ilan Grapel, held by Egypt. Okay and now we’re at a 25 to one ratio. The numbers are...

    Israel PM Binyamin Netanyahu at Gilad Shalit's homecoming Gilad Shalit, 25, landed at home in northern Israel Tuesday evening, Oct. 18, from five years, four months in Hamas captivity, after hours packed with an emotional welcome by his family and government leaders at Tel Nof air base. Before he set out on the last lap of his journey home by helicopter, a medical team carried out tests to be sure the exhausted soldier was fit to travel. Israel agreed to release 1,070 Palestinian terrorists for his freedom. The first batch was transferred to Egypt and the West Bank as the...
  • Intentional misrepresentation of facts MSM? ( Gilad Shalit )

    Doc Talk ^ | GS Don Morris
    As I watch the unfolding of the Shalit exchange across multiple television news channels, including Israeli, France, CNN, BBC and UK I find the most of the reporting disconcerting. Why? The reporters are either ill informed, intentional in distorting the truth or truly ignorant. There is no other possibility. Let me clarify a point repeatedly, across almost all of these news stations regarding Shalit’s abduction. He was taken on 25 June 2006 by Hamas terrorist from Gaza in a cross-border raid. A Hamas terrorist group attacked a Merkava Tank Mark 3, which was guarding the security fence and an army...

  • No Equality in Gilad Shalit's Exchange

    No Equality in Gilad Shalit’s Exchange By Norma Zager “We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly.” Aristotle So many, including Ari, are incensed about Israel’s deal to retrieve Gilad Shalit. Somehow I am not, for I do not see any equality between human life and that of a sub-human species. Perhaps the problem actually lies in believing terrorists are human. I would have to differ with this appraisal. I do not believe they can be classified as even equal to an animal. Animals are way above...

    God Weeps and We with Him By Ari Bussel “There are some 5,000 more prisoners in Israeli prisons. We thus need to kidnap five more Israeli soldiers and every single one will be set free. This is our promise.” Hamas “You do not understand,” say parents to children who are below the age of mandatory draft, “if it were your son, you would stop at nothing to bring him back, even release all those terrorists.” They refer to Gilad Shalit who returned to Israel from Hamas captivity. They are right: I do not understand, why Israel ignored the warning calls...

    Gilad Shalit, the Israeli soldier who's just been released after five years in a Palestinian jail, is relieved to be free. No wonder. To look at him now, compared with earlier photographs, he appears to have lost a good deal of weight. In the press conference this morning he seemed dozy, and his complexion is blanched. He looks as I imagine someone to look who's just emerged from lengthy seclusion in a darkened room. He appears undernourished.

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/17/2011, 4:57 PM | By Maayana Miskin
    Terrorists should be given the death penalty, whether formally or quietly, says former chief IDF rabbi. Terrorists who spill blood should get the death penalty, former chief IDF rabbi Avichai Ronsky said Monday. Speaking to Arutz Sheva, Rabbi Ronsky suggested that if necessary, terrorist murderers could be killed “in the field.” “In many cases, it doesn’t need to reach a court,” he said. Soldiers could simply shoot to kill instead of doing their utmost to bring terrorists in alive, “without giving the matter too much publicity,” he explained. “It happened in the past,” he added.

    On the eve of the terrorist prisoner exchange that will bring home kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, Arab terrorists are gaining confidence and becoming inspired to increase attacks on the road and in Israeli cities. In at least two locations on Highway 60 in Judea, Palestinian Authority Arabs terrorists attacked Israeli travelers. At about 8:30 p.m. terrorists hurled a firebomb at an Israeli bus as it passed the village of El Aroub south of Bethlehem, just five minutes down the road from Gush Etzion. No one was injured, but the bus was damaged. IDF soldiers launched a search for the...

It doesn't matter where those terrorists are going to live, but the fact of the matter is that they will continue doing, planning evil, and will not stop until they get the price for their liberty paid in Jewish blood. No matter how many times one has read that the Netanyahu government has reached an agreement under the auspices of Egypt and that they will swap IDF soldier Gilad Shalit for 1,027, reading...

    An unknown number of the over 1,000 terrorists who are to be freed in exchange for Gilad Shalit will be allowed to return to Jerusalem. A group of concerned residents has responded by announcing the creation of an informal “terrorist warning system.” The system is simple: activists will keep tabs on freed terrorists, and will alert the public if they attempt to enter public areas or use public transportation. In addition, the terrorists’ pictures and personal information will be made available.... “The public does not know them, and they could wander freely. People do not realize that these are terrorists...

    The US government wanted to remove Hamas from the Iranian/Syrian camp and place it in the Egypt/Muslim Brotherhood camp. Was achieving their goal contingent in getting Israel to accept the release of 1000 terrorists, or would it have taken place regardless, If the latter, it was a window of opportunity. If the former, Bibi was forced into accepting the deal. By the way Bibi had to agree not to pursue or kill these terrorists after their release. Of course Hamas was not asked to agree not to use these people to commit more terrorist attacks or not to take new...

    Hamas leaders are telling Arabic media that Israel agreed to release terrorists in exchange for Gilad Shalit without a commitment from the terrorist group to stop kidnapping soldiers. Israel tried to get a commitment, but agreed to go ahead without one, according to sources quoted by the pan-Arabic paper Al-Hayat. Hamas also claimed that they managed to extract a promise from Israel not to harm the more than 1,000 terrorists to be released in exchange for Shalit in any way. The report contradicts what Shin Bet head Yoram Cohen said about the planned prisoner release. Cohen told journalists that the...

    US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday to congratulate him on his deal with Hamas for the release of Gilad Shalit. Clinton reportedly told Netanyahu the decision took "courage and leadership." For his part Netanyahu thanked Clinton for her well-wishes and said that it was a difficult decision for him, being a moment where leadership is tested. Observers say Clinton's sentiments are particularly surprising given the enduring and iron-clan policy of the United States against negotiating with terrorists, instead preferring to mount rescue operations where viable, or to leave captured citizens in captivity. Negotiating...
