46 Practical Recommendations that Could Save your Life
in Case of a Major War or a Natural Disaster

.

Below is a list of emergency items, as well as ideas, of what to have packed in case of a quick escape in times of an emergency — whether it is a war or a natural disaster.

By now, lots of Israelis have already received their gas masks in case of a major war with Iran.  But what else will we need to prepare for?  And what does everyone need to have in order to survive as painlessly as possible such an eventuality?  What do we need to know and have into account once the moment arrives.

It is recommended that all Israeli citizens collect immediately the following items in order to prepare for an expected regional war within the next few, days, weeks or months.

Have into account that these items need to be bought and packed BEFORE the hostilities begin.  Use your discretion but remember that once the war starts you might not have the time, nor the possibility, to buy and/or pack them.  Remember that in the midst of panic and confusion many things can be forgotten.  Also, once hostilities begin, stores might not be open for you to buy anything — and who knows for how long shall they be closed — not to mention that you might not be able to leave your shelter.  So, don’t leave for tomorrow what should be done today.  Don’t lament on that day for not having heeded this good recommendations today.

All items should be secured in back packs or carrying cases that can be easily transported, and they should be stored in a very accessible location ready for evacuation to a shelter. Recommended quantities and other special instructions are also posted below.

Here is the list to have packed:

  1. One Gas Mask per person.  Learn how to wear it properly ahead of time.  (See the link below).
  2. Food.  You should pack 2 cans of tuna, 2 granola bars and 1 small chocolate bar per person, per day, enough to last between two and four weeks.
  3. Water.  You should pack 1.5 liters per person, per day, enough to last between two and four weeks.
  4. One month worth of the prescription medicines which you need to use on a regular basis.
  5. First Aid Kit.  A reasonable amount of bandages, non-stick gauze, band-aids, antibiotic cream, iodine solution, cotton swabs, pain medication, anti-anxiety pills, anti-diarrhea tablets, etc.  (Consult a pharmacist for a complete list).
  6. One sweater per person for in case of cold
  7. One small blanket per person for in case of cold.
  8. One man-sized sheet of plastic for in case of rain
  9. At least one all-weather Flashlight.
  10. One battery-powered multi-band Radio, or a hand crank radio.
  11. Spare Batteries for the radio and flashlight(s).
  12. One well-protected knife.
  13. A coil of Rope approximately 30 meters (~90 feet) long.
  14. Spare socks and underwear.
  15. A few handkerchiefs.  They will become very useful not only for blowing your nose, but for tourniquets, etc.
  16. A map of your city and country
  17. Have all your main documents wrapped in plastic in the back pack.
  18. And last, but certainly not least, a small Bible, a personal Sidur and your Tephillim (of course, if you are a man).

Things to do BEFORE  a major war:

  1. As already said, have everything bought and ready to be easily picked up and go to a shelter or escape out of your usual environment.
  2. When the war is imminent, keep every night your clothing and shoes very close to you. Keep then organized in a ready way.  Of course, keep also handy your back pack with the items recommended above.
  3. Keep your wallet, teudah zehut, keys and at least one handkerchief inside their pockets.  Also, your cellphone should be left attached to the belt.  This way you shall be able to be ready to leave in a very short time.
  4. Have in your wallet all your credit cards and a certain amount of cash just for such an emergency.
  5. Have written in a paper inside your wallet the main telephone numbers of your relatives and friends.
  6. Clean and get ready your main miklat (shelter).  You might have to spend several weeks in it.  Do not add unnecessary unconformability to an already scary and difficult situation.
  7. Make a careful plan of escape with different realistic alternatives.  Make an inventory of all the shelters and possible routes of escape in your vicinity.
  8. Even if painful, be mentally and emotionally prepared by considering the various situations and events that could occur to you and your family during a major war; and imagine how you would face them — even if you remain alone.  Notice that this may save your life, or someone in your family’s.
  9. Follow attentively the news BEFORE the military conflict starts.  Don’t be caught off guard.
  10. Keep you family and friends up to-date on how the situation develops.  Many people go in denial previous to a war and pretend that nothing is about to happen, and so they do not follow the news.  This could be very costly for them.
  11. Pray to HaShem, mend any broken fences with Him, and ask Him to be your main Protector and Shield in the time when you need it most.  Pray a lot and live as He wants you to live, so you should not have to die; but even if you do, dying with Him is a Gate to an Eternal and Wonderful Life.

 These are some of the things that you should do once the military conflict starts:

  1.  Do not panic.  Do not react thoughtlessly.  Panic can kill as many people as some missiles.  The best countermeasure against panic is a genuine faith that our lives are in the Care of HaShem.  The second one is to be mentally, emotionally and spiritually prepared for any disaster.  One of the duties of every regular citizen is to keep calm and in control of himself.
  2. Be alert.  Keep an ear on your radio and the other on your environment.  One of the most scary things in a war is the sounds it produces; but all the sounds you hear can give you lots of vital information, all of which you definitely need.
  3. Be disciplined.  Follow the indications that the Army and the Home Front shall from time to time announce to the civilian population.  Do not try to be a rebellious Lone Ranger.
  4. React deliberately.  The greater the danger, the more deliberate you need to react.  This is why it is so important that you think and plan ahead of time different responses to different eventualities.
  5. Be courageous.  Overcome the natural fear that everyone feels in a war by acting according to the needs of the moment and according to your reason and not your emotions.  Remember this formula:
    Reason + Responsibility = Courage
  6. Do not be overconfident.  It is a great foolishness to show off valor, or even unnecessarily play the hero when not necessary.  At war, a display of personal valor is only for the moments when necessity truly demands it.  You will not only endanger yourself but other people too, most of all your family who shall have to divert their attention from important things on account of your foolishness.
  7. Be patient.  Whether waiting for missiles to fall during a siren alarm, or when bombing elongates too much, or for the whole war to end: do not despair.  Every battle and every war comes to an end, but not before it is due.  Desperation can only accelerate our own demise and that of those around us.
  8. Be civil.  You might have to spend quite some time in a shelter with strangers who might, or not, react like you and who might or not have your same habits.  Remember that fear — and everyone feels it at war — causes flares of anger.  This shall happen to you as much as to them.  Do not allow quarrels and little wars added to the one already going on.  Anger and arguments only block alertness and reasoning, two elements that are vital for survival in any war.
  9. Lay low.  Do not make unnecessary noise — most of all when the enemy is close. But, of course, I bet you knew that.  Do not attract unnecessarily the attention of soldiers and officials who are concentrated doing their best to protect you.
  10. Be conservative.  I don’t mean politically, although I am.  Conserve resources: water, food, medicines, bandages, etc.  You do not know how long the state of war will last.  Only use what is strictly necessary to keep alive, not to satisfy yourself — not even the children.  It’s better to feel bad than not to feel at all.
  11. Be wise.  When at war, it is an absolute must to use your reason and ignore your emotions as much as possible.  For civilians, war is about survival, not unnecessary comfortability.  It is about patriotism, not petty personal interests.  Try to understand the emotions, words and needs of other people; they might be even more afraid than you.  Understand that not everybody feels the same pain for the same loss or the same wound.  Don’t expect others to react as you would in front of the same event or situation.
  12. Be selfless.  Share what you have with others, but do not let them abuse you either.
  13. Be helpful.  Do what you can to sooth the pain of those around you who are hurting.  cooperate with the authorities in whatever way they ask you.  Calm the children around you — even if they are not yours.  Tell them soothing or interesting stories. Don’t let them see you are afraid or nervous; their sense of calm or anguish will come to a great extent from the adults around them, most of all their parents.
  14. Be careful.  Do not go out the shelter unnecessarily, even if it seems to be a period of calm.  If you unavoidably  need to, do it with much precaution, walking by the walls being careful with those that are about to collapse.  Do not go out if there are snippers!
  15. Be brave.  If you get wounded or, worse yet, one whom you love:  try not to scream as much as you can, keep calm, put a tourniquets if needed, or a bandage then go for help.  Remember, many times wounds that are very bloody and ugly are not necessarily life threatening.  Act soon but not precipitously, try to understand that sometimes help might take a little to arrive, screaming and despairing will not help at all, just the opposite.
  16. Pray.  Pray all the time, not only for your wellbeing for that of our soldiers and everybody else.  Do not be selfish so that your prayers be heard.
  17. Be trustful in HaShem.  Every adverse circumstance — as every good one too — offers us the opportunity to make positive or negative decisions.  One of them is to develop trust in the wonderful Character of our G-d.  We may not know our future for the next five seconds, but we can know — for sure — that He loves us and cares for us at all times and under all situations.  It is in that trust of his Character that we can call upon Him for his Help and Protection and be saved.  It’s His Promise, not mine.

For the important items, as well as ideas that were discussed on the show, listen to the program from the following link.  It was that program which gave me the idea of writing this much expanded version of it with my own recommendations.

19 Signs that Israel and Iran ARE on the Verge of War


.

Ready to Defend Israel

There is going to be war in the Middle East.  It is just a matter of time until it happens.  Israel has decided that there is no way that it can ever allow Iran to develop the capability to build nuclear weapons.  Iran has gone “all-in” on developing a nuclear program and it has become a matter of national pride at this point.  Iran does not fear an Israeli attack against its nuclear program.  In fact, Iran anticipates that an Israeli attack would cause the Islamic nations of the Middle East to come together and declare war against Israel.  Sadly, there is a very strong chance that an Israeli attack on Iran would actually spark a larger regional war.  But there is no way that Israel is going to allow Iran to develop the capability to build nuclear weapons, and time for a strike may be running out.

It has become quite clear that the evil Obama administration does not want to strike Iran.  So if Israel wants to do something about Iran, Israel is going to have to be the one to do it.  Now, if Obama wins the U.S. election in November, he might work to actively block Israel from attacking Iran for his entire second term, and the Israelis believe that by 2016 it will be way too late to do anything about Iran’s nuclear program.

If Israel attacks before the election, Obama would be in danger of appearing to be “anti-Israel” if he came out against the attack.  And considering the fact that dellusional Jewish voters are a key voting block in swing states such as Florida that is not something he would want to do.  But after the election, Obama would not have to worry about what Jewish voters think.  After the election, no matter what his dubious promises now might be, Obama could move to block an attack on Iran indefinitely, and that is exactly what I expect him to do.

Of course if Mitt Romney wins the upcoming election things would likely be different because Romney has surely taken a much harder line against Iran than Obama has.

But the Israelis know that the upcoming election could go either way. In fact, if the election was held today Obama would probably win.  I surely expect the dead to vote once again in this November, the programs of the voting machines to have a clear Obama bent, and the Black Panthers to intimidate and force many votes for their darling Kenyan, as they did in the 2008 election.

This is why the next couple of months are such a potentially dangerous time for the Middle East.  If Israel does not move against Iran now, moving against them later could be far more difficult if Obama wins a second term.

So when could we potentially see an attack?  Well, it might not happen prior to or during the very important Jewish holidays that are coming up in late September and early October.  But, who knows what our government does and needs to do?  Probably the most likely time for a strike would be between mid-October and election day in the United States in early November.  Of course, this could mean a sudden and extreme hike in oil prices and a consequential precipitous fall of the already moribond American and wold economies.  It is at this moment that. in the midst of an unparalleled chaos, Obama may prsonally profit by declaring Martial Law and suspending both, the American Constitution and his much hated elections.  Of course, he would claim that it is done “for the sake of national security” and “the protection of the people in such an hour of challenge,” to which hw will add that “it shall last for no more than is needed.”.

But will it actually happen?  Only time will tell.  For the time being, the following are 19 signs which indicate that Israel and Iran are on the verge of war….

  1. Major drills simulating missile strikes have recently been held in Tel Aviv.
  2. The Israeli military has been distributing brochures to the Israeli population instructing them what to do in the event that Israel launches a strike against Iran.
  3. Israel has ramped up the distribution of gas masks to the general public.
  4. One recent poll found that 25 percent of all Israelis said that they would leave the country if Iran got nuclear weapons.  This puts an enormous pressure on the Israeli government to do something before it is too late.
  5. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has publicly declared that negotiations with Iran have failed.
  6. According to Ynet News, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is in favor of striking Iran soon.
    • “Barak is advocating for action and the defense establishment is investing billions to prepare for an Israeli military operation”
  7. Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren told MSNBC recently that the Israeli clock for a strike on Iran “is ticking faster” than the Obama administration clock — of course, Obama’ clock stopped when he squatched it with a hammer blow while crowing “Allahu Akhbar.”
  8. Former Mossad chief Efraim Halevy made the following statement back at the beginning of August,
    • “If I were an Iranian, I would be very fearful of the next 12 weeks”
  9. According to a new UN report, Iran’s nuclear program continues to grow stronger.  The following is from a recent article in the Jerusalem Post,
    • “A UN report released earlier in the day revealed that Iran doubled the number of uranium enrichment machines it has in an underground bunker, showing that Tehran continued to defy Western pressure to stop its atomic work and the threat of Israeli attack.”
  10. Senior Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami recently gave the following warning about what will happen if Israel strikes Iran.
    • “They have seen our missiles with a range of 2,000 kilometers in the Islamic Republic’s exercises, and in case of an attack, Tel Aviv will turn into ashes.”
  11. Iran is planning to hold a “massive air defense drill” during the month of October.
  12. Iran is promising to take military action against Israel if the United States attacks Syria.  [By the way, America has no business in Suria, but to show of its hegemony].
  13. A retired Hezbollah general says that Iran wants to build a nuclear weapon to “create a balance of terror with Israel” and “finish off the Zionist enterprise.
  14. Debka’s military and intelligence sources are reporting that Iran will have enough enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon by October 1st.
  15. Something very unusual appears to be happening in Iran.  According to a report that was recently posted on Steve Quayle’s website, one Iranian family is reporting that Iranians are being ordered to stay inside for the next two weeks.
    • The husband said that their government has just shut sown the whole country for 2 weeks. Every business and every dwelling is ordered to close. Every citizen ordered to stay in their home. If they go out they are stopped by police and will have to show their id and or papers. Her husband said they are being told it is because the Arab leaders are meeting with their government for the next 2 weeks, and that’s all they were told.
  16. Russian President Vladimir Putin has severed military ties with both Iran and Syria.
  17. The Obama administration is so worried about an Israeli attack in Iran before the election that they are taking very public measures to let Israel know that they will be “on their own” if they decide to go through with it.
  18. A joint U.S./Israeli military exercise scheduled for late October has been dramatically scaled back by the Obama administration according to Time Magazine.
    • “Well-placed sources in both countries have told TIME that Washington has greatly reduced the scale of U.S. participation, slashing by more than 2/3 the number of American troops going to Israel and reducing both the number and potency of missile interception systems at the core of the joint exercise.”

Israeli Air Forces

Obama is apparently nervous about having a large contingent of U.S. forces over in Israel just prior to election day.  If Israel were to strike Iran at that time, U.S. forces could potentially be caught in the middle of a major conflict.

So will Israel roll the dice and launch an attack before the election even without the support of the Obama administration?  I think the odds of such an attack have increased considerably.  But I could be wrong.

The truth is that war in the Middle East is inevitable, and when it happens it could very well set off World War III.

War is always horrible.  Nobody should desire death and destruction.  But at this point it is really hard to see how war in the Middle East is going to be avoided.
