Quote of the Week:
“Recent events in our region have sharpened our need to rely on ourselves... I can guarantee that the IDF and security forces will use a steel fist against any threat and challenge.” - Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak - It took him a while to come to this obvious revelation! If only his words were met with deeds! Removal of the enemy population from all Jewish land is the only way to stop terror against Jews.

"Rocket fire from the Gaza Strip is against international law because it is directed at civilians," the Red Cross official said. "We conduct confidential or bilateral dialogue with Hamas on the matter. As time passes, the dialogue also develops."
She said that the Red Cross has also asked to meet with captive soldier Gilad Shalit: "When a person's freedom is taken away, he deserves at least contact with his family. We will continue to ask but we do not have the capability to force anything on Hamas. Hamas' refusal is based on security reasons. Hamas is afraid of the IDF's advanced technological capabilities and believes that allowing contact will lead to the location of Gilad."
