The IDF Summarizes The Operation “Pillar of Defense”: 1,500 Gaza Targets Hit


With 1,500 Targets Bombed And Only 145 Deaths
The IDF Achieved the Lowest Rate of Killing
of Any War In All Of Human History
With An Accuracy Of
90.3%

On The Other Hand, Hamas Set The Record of Poorest Aim Ever
By Having Shot 1,506 Rokets At The Israeli Civilians
And Only Killing 5 Of Us For A Mere:
~ 3% Accuracy

And Still Hamas Has The Chutzpa
Of Shamelessly Claiming Victory !!!

Our Fighters Performed Excellently,
Our Politicians Flunked … Again.
They Shall Pay In January

Iron Dome and Pillar of Defense

The IDF hit more than 1,500 targets in Gaza during Operation Pillar of Defense, according to a statement released Wednesday night.

The statement was a summary of the counterterrorist operation, which came to an end after a ceasefire was announced on Wednesday evening.

The IDF said it achieved the goals that were set prior to the operation and dealt a severe blow to Hamas and its military capabilities.

As a result of the IDF’s strikes, said the statement, there was significant damage to Hamas’s command array, including the targeted killing of arch-terrorist Ahmed Jaabari, extensive damage to infrastructure, facilities and Hamas military bases, as well as the bombing of dozens of smuggling tunnels.

The IDF said that its airstrikes destroyed and damaged Hamas’s strategic capabilities, including long-range rockets and hundreds of medium-range and short-range rockets. Consequently, Hamas’s launching capabilities were significantly disrupted.

Over the course of Operation Pillar of Defense, the IDF targeted 19 senior command centers, operational control centers and Hamas’ senior-rank headquarters, 30 senior operatives, 140 smuggling tunnels, 66 terror tunnels, dozens of Hamas operation rooms and bases, and 26 weapon manufacturing and storage facilities.

In total, 1,506 rockets were fired at Israel during Pillar of Defense, of which 875 exploded in open spaces and 58 exploded in populated areas. The Iron Dome anti-missile system intercepted 421 rockets, with a success rate of 84%.

Five Israelis, including four civilians and one soldier, were killed during the days of the operation and 240 people were wounded.

On Wednesday evening, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman held a joint news conference announcing the ceasefire.

Hamas celebrated the ceasefire and claimed “victory” over Israel. The terror group’s chief Khaled Mashaal announced in a press conference Wednesday evening that Israel “has failed in all its goals” in Operation Defensive Pillar, following the cease fire announcement.

The Islamic terror group marked the ceasefire by firing 20 rockets at southern Israel between 9:00 p.m. and midnight Wednesday evening.  We received six of those in Be’er Sheva, and what they did was to provoke a long and loud laughter from me and my wife, since we understood that it was the clear desperaton of these perennial loosers who want to appear as the victors.  See you next round, whiny and lying boasty loosers, maybe you shall not have it so easy then.

Israel And the US Are Planning An October Surprise. But Israel Can Do It Alone


Israeli KC-135 refueling craft

Israeli KC-135 refueling craft

Four facts deserve attention with regard to a potential attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities.  The first is that the Iranian-Israeli war is already at hand. Iran launched it by sending an unmanned drone into Israeli air space Saturday, Oct. 6, (which was Hoshanah Rabah) breaking new ground in belligerence with a cyber attack.  Israel countered by stationing Patriot missile interceptor batteries in Haifa and other parts of its northern region.  This ridiculous response is so blatantly cowardly and irresponsible that it would make one laugh if it was’nt so pathetic.  As a matter of fact, the humorless Arabs run a much greater risk of dying of laughter at our government than by any explosion of our many nukes.  May it please HaShem to send us soon Moshiach, because as things go: the terrier dogs of my neighbour would make much better politicians than these clowns we actually have … and I mean ALL our politicians, with minimal exceptions that could be counted with the fingers of one hand.

In front of the complicit silence of the so-called “international community” Tehran initiated hostilities with a cyber attack on Israel, and that fact cannot be wiped from the record any more than its score: two points, Iran; zero, Israel, whose air defenses apparently proved to be no match against a large, slow-moving and cumbersome aerial vehicle loaded with electronic equipment.

As many experts have pointed out, Patriots are not designed for intercepting aircraft, only missiles. Their deployment therefore aims at defending the country from potential Iranian or Hizballah missile strikes from Lebanon or Syria — depending partly on the state of the Syrian war.

On the other hand, when Hamas and Jihad Islami spokesmen they assumed shared responsibility for the 55 Palestinian missiles and mortars fired against Israel Monday morning, Oct. 8, said quite openly that the rules of Gaza warfare had changed: any IDF attacks on terrorist targets in the Gaza Strip, however limited in scope, would draw forth reprisals not only from that Palestinian-ruled territory but from Lebanon as well, they said.  This is a fact that was not difficult to see it coming, but our government with its pusilanimity has encouraged it … and what is yet to come.

As of mid-September, under newly-signed military pacts, the strings of the two leading Palestinian terrorist militias in the Gaza Strip are being manipulated from Beirut by Iran and Hizballah. It is they who now set the rules and dictate the scope of Palestinian anti-Israel operations from Gaza. The drone’s incursion was a separate Iranian initiative. The other points pertinent to the Iranian-Israel confrontation are:

  1. US intelligence recently warned Barack Obama that Iran’s nuclear breakthrough point is much closer than formerly estimated, i.e. approximately 7 weeks off. In late November, therefore, Iran will enough have 20% plus enriched uranium to build a nuclear bomb. American and Israeli intelligence see eye to eye on this estimate. It flies, however, in the face of the assessments circulated in Israel by anti-attack factions who are now claiming that Iran has slowed the progress of its military nuclear program in order to divert much of its enriched uranium to civilian projects. This claim is not only incorrect, but it is a valuable contribution to Tehran’s propaganda effort to prove that its program is entirely innocent and peaceful.  Everyone knows very well that all these so-called “peace” and “human rights” organizations in Israel are just a thin cover for a bunch of ferociously self-hating traitors to do their best at attacking, and delegitimizing Israel at every turn, and so help bringing about the Second Shoah (Holocaust) upon the Jewish people, this time on our very own Land.  That is why the endemically antisemitic “international community” solidarizes with them — and with the Muslim Arabs — so much.
  2. Contrary to the always highly manipulated and distorted White House, CIA, Pentagon and State Department investigations, as well as the prostituted media “researches,” a recent US Congressional Research paper, published internally on Sept. 28, asserts that Israel is totally capable of going at it alone — without the United States — against Iran’s nuclear sites, including the Fordo underground enrichment facility. This fact has been completely suppressed by the anti-attack Iran camp, whose spokesmen have insisted that Israel lacks this capacity. The experts commissioned by congress to determine the truth of the matter concluded that: “… an attack on Esfahan, Natanz, and Arak might require deploying only 20% of Israel’s top-line fighters purchased from the United States. …this yields an Israeli strike involving at least 100 aircraft. Most sources indicate that Israel has a total of “around 350 fighter jets.” The US congressional research team adds that, although Israel received enough 7 KC-130 refueling planes from the US to cover the round trip to Iran and back, the Israeli Air Force has also secretly developed two more refueling options about which the US knows very little.  “Over the past two years, Israel Aerospace Industries-IAI bought up all the Boeing 707s coming on the international market and had them converted in IAI factories into KC-135 refueling planes,” says the report. After the Congressional Research Center published these findings, David Rothkopf, who is close to US Democratic Party leaders, tested the ground with a report Monday, Oct. 8, in Foreign Policy, which said that the United States and Israel are considering the possibility of a joint “surgical strike” against Iran’s nuclear facilities as an “October surprise.”  He quoted a source said to be close to the discussions, which claimed that “a small-scale attack is currently viewed as the most likely military option by air, using bombers and supported by drones,” which Israel would not be able to carry out on its own.

What Rothkopf was saying is that the Muslim in Chief in the White House, Barry Obama, has no more than 20 days to decide if and when to conduct this US-Israel attack on Iran.  His clock, say our sources, is ticking at the same speed as that of former Mossad chief Efraim Halevi who on August 1 predicted an attack on Iran within twelve weeks; and Tzahi Hanegbi, the former Knesset defense and foreign affairs committee chair and close confidant of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said in mid-September that the next 50 days would be critical for Israel’s destiny.  But like always, Israel’s Destiny is insured and protected by the Almighty King of Heavens, B”H.

MK Danny Danon’s Calls For A “Three-State-Solution” in His New Book


A New And Fair Solution For The Arab-Israeli Conflict,
But Those Interested In The Destruction Of Israel
Will Surely Not Accept

“Enough with the two-state-solution! Land-for-Peace is over,”
MK Danon Realistically Proclaims

Reality is that the only Viable Solution Will Be Decided By a Major war

Danny Danon - Israel: The Will to Prevail

Danny Danon has come a long way since his activist days. His new book Israel: The Will to Prevail briefly mentions one of his first headline grabbing moments, when he helped reclaim Jewish property in Jerusalem with a small group of young activist members of a group called Yerushalayim Shelanu (Our Jerusalem). For the full interview with MK Danny Danon, download Reality Bytes with Josh Hasten by clicking here.

Danon’s book covers contemporary issues, such as the Mava Marmara flotilla incident, but also gives extensive historical background information on how the situation got to where it is today.

He also writes about US-Israeli relations. “Israel should do what is good for Israel, period,” Danon stated on Israel National Radio. “We must learn from history that we must make our own decisions in the long run.” Danon gave the example of Israel’s 1981 bombing of the nuclear reactor in Iraq. The incident was initially condemned, but later praised following the 1991 Gulf War.

One of the most attention-getting aspects of the book is Danon’s “three-state-solution”, which he calls “a new paradigm for peace.” “Enough with the two-state-solution. Land-for-peace is over,” Danon said. “We don’t want a Palestinian State. We need to apply Israeli sovereignty over all Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. It’s been about 20 years since the Oslo Accords. That’s finished and now we’re ready for new ideas.” The three states of which Danon speaks are Israel, Egypt and Jordan. “If you go to the Arab-populated cities in Judea and Samaria, you will hear them speaking like they do in Jordan,” he said. Danon asserted that the Arab population of Judea and Samaria have Jordanian accents and often travel to and from Jordan.  “It’s the same with the Arabs of Gaza and their connection to Egypt,” he stated.

Born in Israel, Danon served as a shaliach (overseas councilor) for the Betar Zionist Youth Movement in the 1990s in Florida. He later achieved other leadership positions, such as being voted Chairman of the World Likud Organization. He was elected to the Knesset in 2009.

The New Torah Scroll At The Dimona Nuclear Reactor Protects Us From Iran


Because Far Better Than Any Atomic Bomb Is HaShem‘s Torah
And His Wonderful Promises Of Protection In It
That, And No Other, Is Our True Security
Kol HaKavod L’Haverim B’Dimona

The First Torah Scroll For The Dimona Nuclear Reactor
Is Being Dedicated Today Along With A New Synagogue.
The Synagogue Shall Be Replacing A Bomb Shelter

Dimona Plant

The first Torah scroll for the Dimona nuclear reactor is being dedicated today Tuesday 16 Tishrei 5773 (2 October 2012), along with a new synagogue, replacing an old room for worship — none other than a bomb shelter.  Synagogues in bomb shelters are common in Israel; mine is like that too.

Logically, a restricted number of guests were invited to the ceremony at the tightly guarded facility.

Daily prayers at the northern Negev nuclear reactor have been conducted for years in a bomb shelter and the initiative for the new synagogue was launched last year.

American billionaire and philanthropist Ira Rennert, who has provided funding for dozens of Torah scrolls and yeshivot throughout Israel, responded positively to an appeal from Rabbi David Abuhatzeira.

“The rabbi said that a synagogue in the nuclear reactor would be a tremendous combination of holiness with [non-spiritual] power,” according to a source closely involved with the fundraising effort. “The rabbi asked that we work a soon as possible to build the synagogue, which he described as being “splendid.” It seats approximately 300 people.

“The reactor operates 365 days a year, even during holidays, but until now, there has not been a proper synagogue,” the source said. “This was very important for the rabbi. There are thousands of workers at the reactor, and we were surprised to discover there was no synagogue for the hundreds of observant Jews working there.

He noted it is not coincidental that the synagogue is being dedicated at the same time a public debate is raging over the Iranian nuclear threat.

“I have no doubt that the building of a new synagogue and dedication of a new Torah scroll here will protect us against all eternal threats, including that from Iran,” he added.

The nuclear site, officially known as the Negev Nuclear Research Center, is located several miles east of Be’er Sheva and south of Arad.

It is closely defended through the use of a 24/7 unmanned aerial craft hovering over the facility and round-the-clock guards by the IDF in surrounding areas.

Rumors floated last January that the Israel Atomic Energy Commission was considering shutting down the reactor, at least temporarily, because of its possible vulnerability to an attack from Iran.

Arab MKs Are Masked Terrorists! So, Courageously Charges Likud MK Danny Danon


Several Arab Knesset Members are “Masked Terrorists”
Who Use the Knesset to Incite Violence,
Charged MK Danny Danon

At Last The Evident Truth Comes Out!
There Are Traitors in Our Midst

Those who Hate Democracy
Should Never Enjoy It

Only After There Are al-Qaeda Members in the US Congress
Should we Have Arab Mks in Israel
Much, Much  After
Since this is not Democracy
But Suicidal Stupidity
Stop it NOW !!!

MK Danon addresses rally

MK Danon addresses a rally

Several Arab Knesset Members are “masked terrorists” who use the Knesset to incite violence, charged Likud MK Danny Danon.  He was responding to harsh anti-government statements by several Arab MKs on Monday, the 12th anniversary of Arab riots in northern Israel during which 13 terrorist Arabs were killed.

MK Taleb a-Sana of the Arab Ra’am-Ta’al party cynically declared,

“A country that murders its citizens and rewards their killers is a murderous, racist country. If the government does not act justly, we will make justice. If it does not punish the guilty, we will punish them.”

MK Danon said in reply,

“Arab Knesset Members are terrorists in disguise. Those who made declarations against the country of Israel and incite for violence crossed all possible red lines.  In any other country, they already would be sitting behind bars. These same Arab MKs are terrorists masked as Knesset Members.  We cannot remain quiet while a terrorist cell develops in the Knesset.”

Danon called for an urgent discussion in a full session of the Knesset on incitement, which he said has escalated recently.

“We have to put a stop to this praise of ‘shahidim’ [martyrs], meetings with terrorists and the encouragement of violence against the country. This cannot be allowed.”

Anti-government activity among MK Arabs has been common in the past several years.

Former Arab MK Azmi Bashara fled Israel in 2007 after being questioned by police on suspicion of aiding and passing information to Hizbullah in exchange for large sums of money during the Second Lebanon War in 2006.

Current MK Hanini Zoabi joined IHH terrorists on the May 2010 flotilla to Gaza that was stopped by the IDF, whose commandos were viciously attacked on the Mavi Mamara ship before the soldiers were able to overcome the attackers, nine of whom were killed.  She is a member of the Balad party, the same one that Bashara headed. Zoabi rejects the concept of a “Jewish state,” which she has labeled “inherently racist.” She, in a blatant act of self-projection, once lumped Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and former Prime Minister Tzipi Livni as part of “a bunch of fascists.”

At the UN Syria Reaffirmed Her Intentions To Reconquer The Israeli Golan Heights


Undoubtly, a Stupid Collective Insanity is the Most Common Trait Among Arabs

They Have Lost Every War Against Tiny Israel, But they Still Hope

The Next War Will Be Their Last Demise
Because they will Go Massively Destructive
Against Israel and Shall be completely Wiped Out
Read the Book of Amos Chapter 1 and 2

Al-Moallem

“Israel the only nuclear power in the region,” pathetically whines Al-Moallem

The Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem addressed the UN General Assembly, and cynically calls on the so-called “international community” to force Israel to join Non-Proliferation Treaty as means to disarm Mideast of WMDs so it can be an easy target for the genocidal armies of Islam.  And while at it, he reaffirmed his country’s belicose intentions of recapturing the Golan Heights.  This were some of the main issues that his rebel-attribulated boss, Bashar al-Assad, send him there to present to the UN.  He also addressed the UN General Assembly‘s annual ministerial meeting, accusing some UN Security Council members of supporting “terrorism” by Syrian rebels.  The war in Syria is war amongst terrorists, but sides are as evil as the other side.

He said that calls for tyrant Bashar Assad to step down were

“…blatant interference in the domestic affairs of Syria, and the unity of its people and its sovereignty.”

Arabs, Communists and Liberals have a common language of deception: they all are masters of euphemism to distort Reality.

 Al-Moallem said that what is going on in Syria must not “shift the focus” from what he claimed were the real issues – the Palestinians and the Golan Heights.  Really!  In this way this Muslim monster brushes aside the many thousands of civilians killed by his governmnet in Syria as small bananas.

With utmost hypocrisy he declared that Syria reaffirms its commitment to its so-called “natural right” to “restore” the “Syrian” Golan Heights adding that Damascus rejects Israel’s attempts to change the region’s “natural landscape” while “violating Security Council resolutions.”

While the Sykes-Picot Agreement determined the borders between the British and French controlled areas in the Middle East, including the Golan, that bilateral aggrement never became an international agreement, or law, recognizing the Golan as actual Syrian property.

Historically, Syria has had very little connection to this region, as it was very sparsely populated, and mostly by Druze, Bedouins, and other migratory Arab peasants. During its (mere) 19 years of independent control of the Golan, Syria’s only real usage of this region was utilizing its strategic topography for shooting down at Israeli villages in the Hula valley.

Few people ever mention the historical fact that Israel won the Golan in a defensive war in 1967, as Syria was aiming to destroy Israel. Therefore, Israel has every right to keep it.  Furthermore, unlike Judea and Samaria (won from aggressive Jordan in the same war) today there are no Syrians living in the Golan, and thus Israel does not control another people in this case.  In sharp contrast to Syria’s deadly intentions for the Golan, Israel has utilized it for far better purposes. Fine wineries, excellent apple plantations, cattle ranches, beautiful parks for hiking, a ski resort, electric windmills and more.

Finally, there is the huge Syrian hypocrisy. Nearly a century ago, Turkey forcefully usurped from Syria, a region called Iskenderoon, which is few times bigger than the Golan, having far greater strategic and economic importance. Needless to say, for all these years the Syrians have stayed mum on this issue and never once dared to take this land back from Turkey.

Al-Moallem further added that Syria is renewing its call for the international community to recognize a Palestinian state and blamed Israel for the “failure of efforts” to bring about a “just and comprehensive” peace in the Middle East.

He noted that the so-called “Israel’s settlement policy” violates “understandings” adopted as a basis for peace between Israel and the Palestinians, and claimed that sanctions against Syria serve only Israel’s “expansionist interests.”  Silly me, I suppose that there must be some kind of Jewish Jihad going on, of which I’m not aware, trying to bring about a Jewish Caliphate.

Finally, while addressing the nuclear issue, the ridiculous Syrian thug-diplomat called upon the international community to “free the Middle East of WMDs.” He called on the world to compel Israel, “the only nuclear power in the region,” to join the NPT and allow IAEA inspection of its nuclear facilities.  Of course, he forgot to mention that membership with the IAEA is not compulsory but voluntary.  He also obviated the fact that we have had nuclear weapons since the early 1960’s, before even the Six Day War in 1967 and we did not used them because we did not see the necessity for it — the Sampson Option is an ultimate resort if we are on the verge to be annihilated or attacked with weapons of mass destruction.  In 1973, when his country in unison with other no less evil Arab countries viciously attacked us on Yom Kippur and killed many of our people while initially taking lots of territory, we did not used them — even though we could have blown all the Muslim cities in the Middle East.  It is a proven fact that Israel is the only humanitarian and responsible nation in the Mideast, all the others are a pack of rabid wolves thirsty for blood — most of all Jewish blood.  Israel’s nuclear power is for deterrence only; if the Arabs had atomic bombs they would immediately use them to exterminate the Jewish nation and later on dance in the streets while giving away candies.  Well, fat chance!

Jewish Prophecy is very clear in respect to what is about to come out of all of this.  The Arabs, emboldened by the complicit cowardice of the West, will launch an all-out war with weapons of mass destruction against Israel.  Then, for the sake of survival, Israel shall obliterate all the surrounding nations with our nuclear power.  The responsibility shall be upon the shoulders of the Muslim Arabs and the West.  Remember, you should never corner a threatened cat, because it will surely jump on you and take your eyes out.  But, again, the Western population has become too cowardly and indolent, their evil governments are in collusion with the Arabs against Israel, and the Arabs are too stupefied due to their fanaticism with their religion of darkness. So, there is no much hope for lasting peace in the world until those who are bent on its conquest or destruction are taken down.  It is very sad, but very Real.  Live and see it happen.

Hizballah Threatens to ‘Conquer the Galilee’ From Lebanon and Syria With Iran’s Help


A new Hizbullah video highlights the terrorist organization’s latest campaign

Muslim civilians love Terror

“Innocent” Muslim civilians love Terror

A new Hizbullah video highlights the terrorist organization’s latest campaign — they cynically call it “liberating the Galilee.”  On the agenda is Hizbullah’s conquering key sites and cities like tourist centers, refineries, and the Haifa port.

The video was posted on a Hizbullah site Monday, the same day that trasonous Israeli Arab politicians led a protest commemorating the deaths of 12 terrorist Arabs in 2000, as they rioted and attempted to spread the Intifada to northern Israel. The video shows the chief “Zionist settlements” — which is how anti-Semites call all Jewish towns and cities — in northern Israel, such as Afikim, Ma’alot, and Nahariya. The video also mentions “the principal Palestinian cities in northern Palestine,” including Tzefat, Akko, Tiberias, Haifa, and Nazareth.

Last year, Hizbullah head Hassan Nasrallah — a cowardly priest of the so-called “religion of peace” who is always shouting many bravados from his perennial subterrenean hideout — threatened that his terrorists Islamic organization would try to conquer the Galilee. Nasrallah emerged from hiding for a few hours to attend a ceremony in Beirut, where he warned

“[Defense Minister Ehud] Barak, [former IDF Chief of Staff Gabi] Ashkenazi, and [current IDF Chief of Staff] Benny Gantz, that now you must get used to the idea. If you impose a war on Lebanon, our fighters will conquer the Galilee.”

LOL! What this fatty bully boy ignores, but should get used to its Reality, is what HaShem has in store for rabid mongrels like him, his filthy organization of fighters from behind women and children, and his miserable religion of violence.

What Is Hoshanah Rabbah? Does It Have A Connection With The War Of Gog uMagog?


On Rosh Hashanah our Judgement is Written in the Heavenly Book,
then on Yom Kippur that Highest Judicial Decision is Sealed,
and on Hoshanah Rabbah the Verdict is Implemented

Hoshanah Rabbah, the last day of the Sukkot Festival, is the day when the most prayers for Redemption are recited.

Chabad.org: These prayers for Redemption are referred to as Hoshanot because each stanza of the prayer is accompanied by the word Hoshanah — a combination form of the words hosha and nah (bring us salvation, please).

On the first six days of the Festival, the Bimah is circled once. On Hoshana Rabbah, the last day of the Festival, seven circles are made. This custom commemorates the service in the Bet ha-Mikdash during which the kohanim would circle the Altar once daily and seven times on Hoshana Rabbah.

Hoshana Rabbah is the last day on which we fulfill the Mitzvot of the Four Species and dwelling in the Sukkah …. The day is referred to as Hoshana Rabbah (literally, The Great Hoshanah) because more Hoshanah prayers are recited on this day than on the other days.

Jewish Virtual Library:  “In the period of the geonim, the celebration of Hoshanah Rabba acquired considerable solemnity and religious-mystic significance. In Jerusalem a large gathering took place on the Mount of Olives which was circled seven times; official announcements (such as fixing the coming year) were proclaimed; philanthropists and communities received blessings; and public excommunications were issued. The piyyut of Hoshana Rabba which opens with the words, “the Power of Thy Salvation cometh,” which deals with the splitting open of the Mount of Olives (Zechariah 14:4) and the resurrection of the dead, probably has its origin in this ceremony.”

Hoshanah Rabbah occurs on the 21st day of Tishrei and corresponds to the 21st of Nissan when Israel was saved and her enemies were vanquished at the splitting of the Reed Sea. Both dates are exactly six months apart.  The first Redemption took place on the 21st day of Nissan, and the last Redemption shall take place on the 21st day of Tisrei.  HaShem has a fine taste for mathematical parallelisms in history.

Will Hoshanah Rabbah 5773 be the day that Israel is saved and her enemies vanquished at the splitting of the Mount of Olives?  It could be; and if it is not this year, it shall be one another year soon.

Rav Fish (Sod Hachashmal) on Gog uMagog

…It is written (Zechariah 14:2) that during the Gog U’Magog war there will be an earthquake on Har Hazeitim (Mount of Olives) in Yerushalayim, and there shall be the victory upon Gog U’Magog. Based on what we explained, that this will be on Hoshana Rabba, we understand the “Sefer Chassidim” which says: “Rav Hai Gaon used to go to Yerushalayim from Bavel every year on Succot, and surrounded Har Hazeitim seven times every Hoshana Rabba. Many of the special Tefilot we recite on Hoshana Rabba are concerning the Geula, such as: .תִּתְּנֵנוּ לְשֵׁם וְלִתְהִלָּה וְכוּ’. קוֹל מְבַשֵּׂר מְבַשֵּׂר וְאוֹמֵר

The Arizal writes (Likutei Torah, Sh’mot) the words Gog U’Magog equal 70, compared to the seventy nations. Gog U’Magog shall control all of the 70 nations, and they will all gather against Yisrael. When Am Yisrael will be redeemed, it shall be “Hoshana Rabba” (A Great Salvation). The verse (Tehillim 27:5)  “He shall hide me in the Succah on the Bad Day” is the same letters as “Arava Day” (refers to Hoshana Rabba): “כִּי יִצְפְּנֵנִי בְּסֻכֹּה בְּיוֹם רָעָה”, אוֹתִיּוֹת יוֹם עֲרָבָה

And then, there is this: Signs Sha’at Ratzon: Time of Will Sukkot 5773

White House Irked By Netanyahu’s “Red Line” Speech, Reverts To Iran Diplomacy


America Continues to Provoke the Wrath of G-d

In the Midst of an Arrogance Attack Obama and Clinton

Let See their Genocidal Intention Toward Israel

The Muslim in Chief in the Wite House is Very Mad at Netanyahu
for Daring to Defend the Right of Israel to Fight for her Survival
in Front of the Evident Conspiracy existent between Obama and Iran

.

The Islamic Usurper

The Islamic Usurper Dictates to Israel

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton berated Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for the powerful presentation of his case for confronting Iran with Red Lines — instead of the thus far failed American diplomacy and weak sanctions — in his speech to the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27.

Neither of them released a statement from their conversation of an hour and a quarter one-on-one shortly after the irrefutable speech. Clinton made it clear that the arrogant Muslim Kenyan usurper of the White House Barack Obama would not tolerate the Israeli prime minister having a say in his Iran agenda.

Of course, what these two filthy mongrels (Obama and Clinton) forgot is that Mr. Netanyahu is the democratically-elected leader of a sovereign and totally  independent nation (yes, despite de wet dreams of many self-important Americans); and therefore it is Netanyahu — and no other! much less them — has the greatest saying in what concerns the national survival of israel.  In Israel we all have their number, and will not stand by their vain American imperial arrogance.

Muslim Obama — committed as he is to supporting the Islamic dream of world conquest and the destruction of Israel — assured that he would remain stuck to diplomacy regardless of Netanyahu’s warning that it was getting “late, very late” to stop a nuclear Iran.  Clinton accordingly announced a decision by “the world powers” to go into another round of nuclear negotiations with Iran, although after the breakdown of diplomacy in July, they expected an improved Iranian offer.

These so-called “world powers,” who speak so grandiloquently about freedom and democracy, have abrogated themselves the position of deciders of the course of history for all humanity, something that only belongs to G-d Almighty, B”H.  It will be lovely to see what will happen to them pretty soon.

Notorious anti-Semite EU foreign executive Catherine Ashton was directed to get in touch with Iran’s nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalilee for another attempt to set up talks, although when the two officials met in Istanbul on Sept. 18, they made no headway.

US steps early Friday Sept. 28 put the clock back five days to Monday when Obama dismissed Netanyahu’s advocacy of agreed Red Lines for warning Iran off its nuclear bomb program as “background noises” which he systematically blocked. This reversal came after White House and Israeli officials had begun discussing moving the critical timeline for that program to late spring, early summer 2013, instead of this year.

Addressing the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27  Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu graphically depicted Israel’s Red Line for Iran. He held up a simple diagram showing that Iran had covered 70 percent of the distance to a nuclear bomb and must be stopped before it reached the critical stage next spring or early summer of 2013. He stressed that it is getting late, very late to stop a nuclear Iran. The best way, he said, is to lay down a clear Red Line on the most vulnerable element of its nuclear program: uranium enrichment. “I believe that if faced with a clear and credible red line, Iran will back down and may even disband its program,” he said.

Red Lines prevent wars, don’t start them and in fact deterred Iran from blocking the Strait of Hormuz. Israel and the US are in discussion over this issue, said Netanyahu. “I’m sure we can forge a way forward together.” He went on to accuse Iran of spreading terrorist networks in two dozen countries and turning Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds.

Hoping a nuclear-armed Iran will bring stability is like hoping a nuclear al Qaeda will bring world peace, the prime minister remarked. Some Washington sources are disclosing that the White House and Israel emissaries have come to an understanding that Israel will hold back from attacking Iran’s nuclear sites before the US election in November, while a special team set up by Usurper Obama completes a new paper setting out the end game for Iran. He put the team to work after concluding that negotiations with Iran had exhausted their usefulness. Gary Samore, top presidential adviser on nuclear proliferation, leads the team.

Netanyahu’s citing of late spring, early summer 2013, as the critical point on Iran’s path to a nuclear bomb appears to confirm that he has agreed to delay military action against Iran following negotiations with the White House on the next agreed steps. The prime minister was represented in those talks by Defense Minister Ehud Barak and National Security Adviser Yakov Amidror.

According to another view, which is current in Washington’s intelligence community, Israel was finally persuaded to delay by fresh intelligence [ most probably contrived ] presented by the Obama administration which showed that Israeli estimates were overly pessimistic in judging the timeline for Iran’s nuclear facilities to be buried in “immunity zones.” That timeline extended to spring 2013, leaving Israel five to six months up to April-May for ordering a military operation against those sites. However, we have learned that Israeli intelligence circles dispute their American colleagues’ estimate as “interesting” but inaccurate.  Netanyahu, in his speech, confirmed that Washington and Jerusalem were constantly exchanging views and evaluations on the state of Iran’s nuclear program. He also made the point that while intelligence services, American and Israeli alike, had remarkable aptitudes, their estimates on Iran were not foolproof. He was referring to the Pentagon dubious claim that when Iran was ready to build a bomb, American intelligence would know about it in good time.  But that does not mean that they will share the truth with Israel.

Trusting America has proven suicidal for many nations, among them Cuba where I was born, but also the prosperous pre-Ayatollah Iran, Nicaragua, and many others.  Bigoted America is only trustworthy for England, France and Germany; the rest should better be very careful.  Israel does not need America.  Reality is opposite to that:  America needs Israel, and HaShem will soon validate such a truism.

Highlights of the Speech

Addressing the UN General Assembly Thursday, Sept. 27 Israel Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu graphically depicted Israel’s red line for Iran. He held up a simple diagram showing that Iran had covered 70 percent of the distance to a nuclear bomb and must be stopped before it reached the critical stage next spring or early summer. He stressed that it is getting late, very late to stop a nuclear Iran.

The best way, he said, is to lay down a clear red line on the most vulnerable element of its nuclear program: uranium enrichment. “I believe that if faced with a clear and credible red line, Iran will back down and may even disband its nuclear program,” he said.  Red lines prevent wars, don’t start them and in fact deterred Iran from blocking the Strait of Hormuz. Israel and the US are in discussion over this issue, said Netanyahu. “I’m sure we can forge a way forward together.

Obama the Muslim Donkey gets a History Lesson 101

.

.

Thank you very much Mr. President.

It’s a pleasure to see the General Assembly presided by the Ambassador from Israel, and it’s good to see all of you, distinguished delegates.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Three thousand years ago, King David reigned over the Jewish state in our eternal capital, Jerusalem. I say that to all those who proclaim that the Jewish state has no roots in our region and that it will soon disappear.

Throughout our history, the Jewish people have overcome all the tyrants who have sought our destruction. It’s their ideologies that have been discarded by history.

The people of Israel live on. We say in Hebrew Am Yisrael Chai, and the Jewish state will live forever.

The Jewish people have lived in the land of Israel for thousands of years. Even after most of our people were exiled from it, Jews continued to live in the land of Israel throughout the ages.  The masses of our people never gave up the dreamed of returning to our ancient homeland.

Defying the laws of history, we did just that. We ingathered the exiles, restored our independence and rebuilt our national life. The Jewish people have come home!

We will never be uprooted again!!!

Yesterday was Yom Kippur, the Holiest Day of the Jewish year.

Every year, for over three millennia, we have come together on this Day of reflection and Atonement. We take stock of our past. We pray for our future. We remember the sorrows of our persecution; we remember the great travails of our dispersion; we mourn the extermination of a third of our people — six million — in the Holocaust.

But at the end of Yom Kippur, we celebrate.

We celebrate the rebirth of Israel. We celebrate the heroism of our young men and women who have defended our people with the indomitable courage of Joshua, David, and the Maccabees of old. We celebrate the marvel of the flourishing modern Jewish state.

In Israel, we walk the same paths tread by our patriarchs Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. But we blaze new trails in science, technology, medicine, agriculture.

In Israel, the past and the future find common ground.

Unfortunately, that is not the case in many other countries. For today, a great battle is being waged between the modern and the medieval.

The forces of modernity seek a bright future in which the rights of all are protected, in which an ever-expanding digital library is available in the palm of every child, in which every life is sacred.

The forces of medievalism seek a world in which women and minorities are subjugated, in which knowledge is suppressed, in which not life but death is glorified.

These forces clash around the globe, but nowhere more starkly than in the Middle East.

Israel stands proudly with the forces of modernity. We protect the rights of all our citizens: men and women, Jews and Arabs, Muslims and Christians — all are equal before the law.

Israel is also making the world a better place: our scientists win Nobel Prizes. Our know-how is in every cell-phone and computer that you’re using. We prevent hunger by irrigating arid lands in Africa and Asia.

Recently, I was deeply moved when I visited Technion, one of our technological institutes in Haifa, and I saw a man paralyzed from the waist down climb up a flight of stairs, quite easily, with the aid of an Israeli invention.

And Israel’s exceptional creativity is matched by our people’s remarkable compassion. When disaster strikes anywhere in the world — in Haiti, Japan, India, Turkey Indonesia and elsewhere — Israeli doctors are among the first on the scene, performing life-saving surgeries.

In the past year, I lost both my father and my father-in-law. In the same hospital wards where they were treated, Israeli doctors were treating Palestinian Arabs. In fact, every year, thousands of Arabs from the Palestinian territories and Arabs from throughout the Middle East come to Israel to be treated in Israeli hospitals by Israeli doctors.

I know you’re not going to hear that from speakers around this podium, but that’s the truth. It’s important that you are aware of this truth.

It’s because Israel cherishes life, that Israel cherishes peace and seeks peace.

We seek to preserve our historic ties and our historic peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan. We seek to forge a durable peace with the Palestinians.

President Abbas just spoke here.

I say to him and I say to you:

We won’t solve our conflict with libelous speeches at the UN. That’s not the way to solve it. We won’t solve our conflict with unilateral declarations of statehood.

We have to sit together, negotiate together, and reach a mutual compromise, in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes the one and only Jewish State.

Israel wants to see a Middle East of progress and peace. We want to see the three great religions that sprang forth from our region — Judaism, Christianity and Islam — coexist in peace and in mutual respect.

Yet the medieval forces of radical Islam, whom you just saw storming the American embassies throughout the Middle East, they oppose this.

They seek supremacy over all Muslims. They are bent on world conquest. They want to destroy Israel, Europe, America. They want to extinguish freedom. They want to end the modern world.

Militant Islam has many branches – from the rulers of Iran with their Revolutionary Guards to Al Qaeda terrorists to the radical cells lurking in every part of the globe.

But despite their differences, they are all rooted in the same bitter soil of intolerance. That intolerance is directed first at their fellow Muslims, and then to Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus, secular people, anyone who doesn’t submit to their unforgiving creed.

They want to drag humanity back to an age of unquestioning dogma and unrelenting conflict.

I am sure of one thing. Ultimately they will fail. Ultimately, light will penetrate the darkness.

We’ve seen that happen before.

Some five hundred years ago, the printing press helped pry a cloistered Europe out of a dark age. Eventually, ignorance gave way to enlightenment.

So too, a cloistered Middle East will eventually yield to the irresistible power of freedom and technology. When this happens, our region will be guided not by fanaticism and conspiracy, but by reason and curiosity.

I think the relevant question is this:  It’s not whether this fanaticism will be defeated. It’s how many lives will be lost before it’s defeated.

We’ve seen that happen before too.

Some 70 years ago, the world saw another fanatic ideology bent on world conquest. It went down in flames. But not before it took millions of people with it. Those who opposed that fanaticism waited too long to act. In the end they triumphed, but at an horrific cost.

My friends, we cannot let that happen again.

At stake is not merely the future of my own country. At stake is the future of the world. Nothing could imperil our common future more than the arming of Iran with nuclear weapons.

To understand what the world would be like with a nuclear-armed Iran, just imagine the world with a nuclear-armed Al-Qaeda.

It makes no difference whether these lethal weapons are in the hands of the world’s most dangerous terrorist regime or the world’s most dangerous terrorist organization. They’re both fired by the same hatred; they’re both driven by the same lust for violence.

Just look at what the Iranian regime has done up till now, without nuclear weapons.

In 2009, they brutally put down mass protests for democracy in their own country. Today, their henchmen are participating in the slaughter of tens of thousands of Syrian civilians, including thousands of children, directly participating in this murder.

They abetted the killing of American soldiers in Iraq and continue to do so in Afghanistan. Before that, Iranian proxies killed hundreds of American troops in Beirut and in Saudi Arabia. They’ve turned Lebanon and Gaza into terror strongholds, embedding nearly 100,000 missiles and rockets in civilian areas. Thousands of these rockets and missiles have already been fired at Israeli communities by their terrorist proxies.

In the last year, they’ve spread their international terror networks to two dozen countries across five continents — from India and Thailand to Kenya and Bulgaria. They’ve even plotted to blow up a restaurant a few blocks from the White House in order to kill a diplomat.

And of course, Iran’s rulers repeatedly deny the Holocaust and call for Israel’s destruction almost on a daily basis, as they did again this week from the United Nations.

So I ask you, given this record of Iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine Iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. Imagine their long range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads, their terror networks armed with atomic bombs.

Who among you would feel safe in the Middle East? Who would be safe in Europe? Who would be safe in America? Who would be safe anywhere?

There are those who believe that a nuclear-armed Iran can be deterred like the Soviet Union.

That’s a very dangerous assumption.

Militant Jihadists behave very differently from secular Marxists. There were no Soviet suicide bombers. Yet Iran produces hordes of them.

Deterrence worked with the Soviets, because every time the Soviets faced a choice between their ideology and their survival, they chose their survival.

But deterrence may not work with the Iranians once they get nuclear weapons.

There’s a great scholar of the Middle East, Prof. Bernard Lewis, who put it best. He said that for the Ayatollahs of Iran, mutually assured destruction is not a deterrent, it’s an inducement.

Iran’s apocalyptic leaders believe that a medieval holy man will reappear in the wake of a devastating Holy War, thereby ensuring that their brand of radical Islam will rule the earth.

That’s not just what they believe. That’s what is actually guiding their policies and their actions.

Just listen to Ayatollah Rafsanjani who said, I quote:  “The use of even one nuclear bomb inside Israel will destroy everything, however it would only harm the Islamic world.”

Rafsanjani said:  “It is not irrational to contemplate such an eventuality.”

Not irrational !!

And that’s coming from one of the so-called “moderates” of Iran.

Shockingly, some people have begun to peddle the absurd notion that a nuclear-armed Iran would actually “stabilize” the Middle East.

Yeah, right.

That’s like saying a nuclear-armed Al-Qaeda would usher in an era of “universal peace.”

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I’ve been speaking about the need to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons for over 15 years.

I spoke about it in my first term in office as Prime Minister, and then I spoke about it when I left office. I spoke about it when it was fashionable, and I spoke about it when it wasn’t fashionable.

I speak about it now because the hour is getting late — very late!  I speak about it now because the Iranian nuclear calendar doesn’t take time out for anyone or for anything. I speak about it now because when it comes to the survival of my country, it’s not only my right to speak; it’s my duty to speak. And I believe that this is the duty of every responsible leader who wants to preserve world peace.

For nearly a decade, the international community has tried to stop the Iranian nuclear program with diplomacy.  That hasn’t worked.

Iran uses diplomatic negotiations as a means to buy time to advance its nuclear program.

For over seven years, the international community has tried sanctions with Iran. Under the leadership of President Obama, the international community has passed some of the strongest sanctions to date.

I want to thank the governments represented here that have joined in this effort. It’s had an effect. Oil exports have been curbed and the Iranian economy has been hit hard.

It’s had an effect on the economy, but we must face the truth. Sanctions have not stopped Iran’s nuclear program either.

According to the International Atomic Energy Agency, during the last year alone, Iran has doubled the number of centrifuges in its underground nuclear facility in Qom.

At this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent Iran from getting atomic bombs. That’s by placing a clear Red Line on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.

Red Lines don’t lead to war;  Red Lines prevent war.

Look at NATO’s charter:  It made clear that an attack on one member country would be considered an attack on all.  NATO’s Red Line helped keep the peace in Europe for nearly half a century.

President Kennedy set a red line during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  That Red Line also prevented war and helped preserve the peace for decades.

In fact, it’s the failure to place Red Lines that has often invited aggression.

If the Western powers had drawn clear Red Lines during the 1930s, I believe they would have stopped Nazi aggression and World War II might have been avoided.

In 1990, if Saddam Hussein had been clearly told that his conquest of Kuwait would cross a Red Line, the first Gulf War might have been avoided.

Clear Red Lines have also worked with Iran.

Earlier this year, Iran threatened to close the Straits of Hormouz. The United States drew a clear Red Line and Iran backed off.

Red Lines could be drawn in different parts of Iran’s nuclear weapons program.  But to be credible, a Red Line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program: on Iran’s efforts to enrich uranium.  Now let me explain why:

Basically, any bomb consists of explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it.

The simplest example is gunpowder and a fuse. That is, you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder.

In the case of Iran’s plans to build a nuclear weapon, the gunpowder is enriched uranium.  The fuse is a nuclear detonator.

For Iran, amassing enough enriched uranium is far more difficult than producing the nuclear fuse.

For a country like Iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. That requires thousands of centrifuges spinning in tandem in very big industrial plants. Those Iranian plants are visible and they’re still vulnerable.

In contrast, Iran could produce the nuclear detonator – the fuse – in a lot less time, maybe under a year, maybe only a few months.

The detonator can be made in a small workshop the size of a classroom.  It may be very difficult to find and target that workshop, especially in Iran. That’s a country that’s bigger than France, Germany, Italy and Britain combined.

The same is true for the small facility in which they could assemble a warhead or a nuclear device that could be placed in a container ship. Chances are you won’t find that facility either.

So, in fact, the only way that you can credibly prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, is to prevent Iran from amassing enough enriched uranium for a bomb.

So, how much enriched uranium do you need for a bomb? And how close is Iran to getting it?

Let me show you. I brought a diagram for you. Here’s the diagram.

This is a bomb; this is a fuse.

In the case of Iran’s nuclear plans to build a bomb, this bomb has to be filled with enough enriched uranium. And Iran has to go through three stages.

The first stage:  they have to enrich enough of low enriched uranium.

The second stage:  they have to enrich enough medium enriched uranium.

And the third stage and final stage:  they have to enrich enough high enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Where’s Iran? Iran’s completed the first stage. It took them many years, but they completed it and they’re 70% of the way there.

Now they are well into the second stage. By next spring — at most by next summer at current enrichment rates — they will have finished the medium enrichment and move on to the final stage.

From there, it’s only a few months, possibly a few weeks before they get enough enriched uranium for the first bomb.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

What I told you now is not based on secret information. It’s not based on military intelligence. It’s based on public reports by the International Atomic Energy Agency. Anybody can read them. They’re online.

So if these are the facts — and they are — where should the Red Line be drawn?

The Red Line should be drawn right here.  Before Iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb.

Before Iran gets to a point where it’s a few months away, or a few weeks away, from amassing enough enriched uranium to make a nuclear weapon.

Each day, that point is getting closer. That’s why I speak today with such a sense of urgency. And that’s why everyone should have a sense of urgency.

Some who claim that even if Iran completes the enrichment process, even if it crosses that Red Line that I just drew, our intelligence agencies will know when and where Iran will make the fuse, assemble the bomb, and prepare the warhead.

Look, no one appreciates our intelligence agencies more than the Prime Minister of Israel.  All these leading intelligence agencies are superb, including ours. They’ve foiled many attacks. They’ve saved many lives.

But they are not foolproof.

For over two years, our intelligence agencies didn’t know that Iran was building a huge nuclear enrichment plant under a mountain.

Do we want to risk the security of the world on the assumption that we would find in time a small workshop in a country half the size of Europe?

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The relevant question is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.

The Red Line must be drawn on Iran’s nuclear enrichment program because these enrichment facilities are the only nuclear installations that we can definitely see and credibly target.

I believe that faced with a clear Red Line, Iran will back down.

This will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince Iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether.

Two days ago, from this podium, President Obama reiterated that the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran cannot be contained.

I very much appreciate the President’s position as does everyone in my country. We share the goal of stopping Iran’s nuclear weapons program. This goal unites the people of Israel. It unites Americans, Democrats and Republicans alike and it is shared by important leaders throughout the world.

What I have said today will help ensure that this common goal is achieved.

Israel is in discussions with the United States over this issue, and I am confident that we can chart a path forward together.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The clash between modernity and medievalism need not be a clash between progress and tradition.

The traditions of the Jewish people go back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values and the foundation of our national strength.

At the same time, the Jewish people have always looked towards the future. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights.

We champion these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them.

We heed the words of the Jewish prophets Isaiah, Amos, and Jeremiah to treat all with dignity and compassion, to pursue justice and cherish life and to pray and strive for peace.

These are the timeless Values of my people and these are the Jewish people’s greatest gift to mankind.

Let us commit ourselves today to defend these values so that we can defend our freedom and protect our common civilization.

Thank you.
