Dear Friends, five years ago I started publishing this, completely independent, editorial letter with the objective: Present the facts about Arab-Israel conflict and encourage people, regardless of their political affiliation and religious belief, to become active defenders and propagators of Eretz-Israel – the Land of Israel.
DURING THE RECENT month-long war between Hezbollah and Israel, U.N. "peacekeeping" forces made a startling contribution: They openly published daily real-time intelligence, of obvious usefulness to Hezbollah, on the location, equipment, and force structure of Israeli troops in Lebanon… Meanwhile, UNIFIL posted not a single item of specific intelligence regarding Hezbollah forces.
UNIFIL--the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, a nearly 2,000-man blue-helmet contingent that has been present on the Lebanon-Israel border since 1978--is officially neutral. Yet, throughout the recent war, it posted on its website for all to see precise information about the movements of Israeli Defense Forces soldiers and the nature of their weaponry and materiel, even specifying the placement of IDF safety structures within hours of their construction.
UN: Barking Pack of Dogs. The UN humanitarian chief accused Israel of "shocking" and "completely immoral", but not illegal, behaviour for dropping large numbers of cluster bombs on Lebanon… The spokeswoman for Israel's mission to the UN, Anat Friedman, said she had no immediate comment on Egeland's remarks. (Again, another ‘little piglet’ was allowed to bark at Israel and high-paid Israeli diplomat was not doing her job, kept silent and allowed enemies of Israel to gloat! Numerous alleged massacres committed by US marines in Iraq, but all ‘shocked’ and pay attention only to Israel’s defensive war against Islamic terror!)
The HSBC bank has estimated the war against Hezbollah cost Israel $4.8 billion. – Israel was a victim of aggression, facilitated by Lebanese government. For self-defence Israel is receiving only condemnations, there is no intention of international help. At the same time, gutless International Israel-haters eagerly pledged almost 1 billion dollars to help Lebanon! But, they have no money and desire to stop genocide in Sudan, wars in Sri Lanka and many parts of Africa!
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
July of 1922, League of Nations allocated all Palestine for the Jewish state, Eretz-Israel. In 1948, Arabs rejected UN resolution and idea of Arab state next to Israel. Therefore, all other UN resolutions are irrelevant! Jew-haters know all of it. They just choose to stay arrogant and play they stupid, hateful and demagogic games! Why should we?
Arafat Syndrome. PA terrorists fired five rockets into Israel a day after Abbas called by to halt the attacks. Four rockets landed near the southern border town of Sderot, while the fifth landed near the city of Ashkelon. (Make statements and promises, but immediately ignore them. This tactic used to be a trademark of Yassef Arafat. Now it is employed by most Arab rulers.)
77 Killed in Iraq. “Insurgents” killed at least 77 Iraqis in one day, last Wednesday. A blast in the Shurja market left 24 dead and 35 wounded and came just two hours after rebels targeted an Iraqi army recruitment centre in the town of Hilla, south of Baghdad, killing 12 volunteers and wounding 38. (Several years after invision and occupation of Iraq - arguably is illigal act of agression under international law - thousans are still dying with no end in sight. Why there are no UN resolutions to “end the war” and “withdraw” coallition forces from Iraq?)
‘Nice’ Neighbour. Lebanon will be the last Arab country to sign a peace treaty with Israel, Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said Wednesday, vowing that he would not hold "direct or indirect contacts" with Israel or have his government resign. (No wonder Hesbollah flourish in Lebanon.)
Jewish Contribution to Humanity.
Sir John Monash, Lieutenant-General, (1865 – 1931) Australian military commander of the WW-1. He introduced the new strategy where advance under the maximum possible protection mechanical resources, in the form of guns, machine-guns, tanks, mortars and aeroplanes.
IBM to set up 3rd software lab in Israel. IBM Corp. is expanding its research activity in Israel. The new laboratory will consolidate three software development groups operating in Rehovot and Jerusalem, which are run by teams of companies IBM acquired in recent years. IBM’s Haifa research center was established over 30 years ago and is one of the company’s largest centers outside the US. The IBM Israel Research Lab has over 400 employees.
Israeli Arabs are getting Ready. Seven Israeli Arabs Arrested for Stealing 60 Firearms of IDF Soldiers' Homes. The gang members followed soldiers to their homes, broke into homes and steal about 60 firearms. (Arabs have never been loyal to Israel!)
Is Hezbollah using Counterfeit US Dollars for Reconstruction? Something is mighty weird about Hezbollah passing out huge sums of hundred dollar bills to Lebanese people affected by the war with Israel. Residents who lost their homes in the war receive US$12,000 to each claimant from Hezbollah. Is Iran rebuilding Lebanon, and they decided to do it by giving Hezbollah suitcases of cash rather than coordinate with the government of Lebanon?
Democracy with no Accountability. Ehud Olmert announced that his government would conduct a limited, it will have no powers to interrogate nor summon witnesses, inquiry into Israel’s handling of the Lebanon war. Before, his refuse to appoint an independent state commission of inquiry into management of the war with Hizbullah. Olmert said such a commission – which would have the power to dismiss ministers at the highest levels of government – was “not what the nation needs.” (Why not? The useless under-performers, including PM, must go!)
Quote of the Week:
"The settlement of the Land of Israel, Eretz-Israel, is the essence of Zionism. Without settlement, we will not fulfil Zionism. It's that simple." - Yitzhak Shamir, 02/21/1997.
Example of Stockholm Syndrome. The Austrian teenager held in an underground cell for more than eight years insisted Monday she didn't miss out on much in captivity and was even spared some temptations and torments of adolescence, such as smoking, drinking and dealing with "bad friends." (Many Jews exhibit the similar symptoms in relation to their tormenters – Arabs and anti-Semites in general.)
Hamas is still Digging. IDF and General Security Service, security forces succeeded earlier last week in finding a long tunnel dug from within Gaza towards the Karni crossing. Terrorists were apparently planning to carry out a major attack against Israeli personnel at the crossing itself.
Biblical Waterworks Found in Israel. Archaeologists in Israel have unearthed an ancient water system. The network of reservoirs, drain pipes and underground tunnels served one of the grandest palaces in the biblical kingdom of Judea. Recent excavations unearthed nearly 70 square meters (750 square feet) of a unique water system, built on a six-acre (2.4 hectare) site where the communal Ramat Rachel farm now stands.
Danish festival leaves out Israel. A cultural festival on the Mideast in Copenhagen has drawn criticism for failing to include Israel. The festival, which started Aug. 12 and runs through Sept. 20 in Copenhagen and eight other Danish cities. The Saudi royal family, a main sponsor together with the Danish government, insisted on leaving out Israel. (It seams that there is no limit to the ugliness of policy of appeasement of oil blackmail conducted by Arab countries.)
There is a holy war going on in New York City and around the world: Jews for Jesus are making a proselyting effort in the city that has never been larger. In the atmosphere of uncertainty and the lack of leadership, both political and spiritual, Jews are vulnerable. Many Evangelical Christian groups wage spiritual war against survival of Jewish people. The Church could not destroy us during 2000 years of operation with the fire and rope. Now they hide behind the mask of love toward Jews. But the objective is the same as during Inquisition or Holocaust - destruction Jewish souls - Physical and Spiritual! (This is another war that Jews have been subjected to for a long time! As usual, there is no leadership and willingness to organize a united front against it!)
Believe vs Reality. An evangelist, Pastor Franck Kabele 35, who tried replicating Jesus' miracle of walking on water has drowned. He told his congregation he could repeat the biblical miracle, and he attempted it from a beach in Gabon's capital of Libreville.
