Australia's Dangerous Problem With Islam

This may seem a bit slow, but you Must Listen all the way through to the end. Listen to the voice of the woman as she describes the attack on her and three children. Listen to the fear in her voice and to her closing words...
...They've found us haven't they?

Katzav Found Guilty

Former president of Israel, Moshe Katzav has been found guilty of two counts of rape and one count of an indecent act. 

The judges said among other things that:
* Katzav's testimony had been "replete with lies," 
*he should not have accused the media of "trying him publicly," because he himself "used the media to his advantage whenever he could,"and
* he should have accepted the plea bargain that was offered him.

Moshe Katzav is a proven liar, a rapist and a sexual predator apart from the complete shame and disgrace his has brought to the country and the government of Israel. As an immigrant from Iran he sullies the name of all who come to Israel with a desire to make a better life and become a part of the country. 

One can only hope that he is given an appropriate punishment of jail time and  be made to undergo counseling for sexual predators. Being as how he denies any wrong doing I somehow doubt this disgusting little man will ever do the right thing. I wonder if the two women will sue for damages?

You can read the story here at Arutz 7.

ZAKA~Chesed Shel Emet (True Virtue)

David Rawlings & ZAKA Team
About a year ago Israel Vision.TV created a promotional video for ZAKA (a Hebrew acronym for Disaster Victims Identification). David Rawlings spent time following and filming ZAKA in action and interviewed some of their volunteers.  When the earthquake stuck in Haiti David was with the team at Ben Gurion airport as they prepared to leave. You can  watch these touching interviews on the Israel Vision.TV website. These amazing men speak of their experiences and the strength that it takes to carefully sift through every disaster to insure that no human remains--no matter how small--are left behind. There are also links you can follow to the ZAKA home page.

The following information was posted on Israel 21C by Abigail Klein Leichman on 21 December 2010. Do visit their excellent site for many other interesting reports about Israel.
ZAKA founder Yehuda Meshi-Zahav
Yehuda Meshi-Zahav, Founder of ZAKA
In a special Knesset gathering in November, Israeli Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz presented an award to ZAKA Rescue and Recovery Organization founder Yehuda Meshi-Zahav for raising awareness and promoting road safety. The moment was noteworthy not just because it acknowledged ZAKA's role in responding to thousands of car accidents and encouraging safer driving, but also because it underlined the warm relationship between Israel's secular officials and Meshi-Zahav, an ultra-Orthodox (haredi) former anti-Zionist agitator. Yehuda Meshi-Zahav evolved from an anti-Zionist firebrand in an ultra-Orthodox neighborhood into the founder of ZAKA, a unique rescue and recovery organization.

Since founding ZAKA in 1995, the 51-year-old father of seven has gained a reputation as an international rescue authority and as one of Israel's greatest champions of tolerance among both Jews and Arabs. His post-9/11 work in New York earned him an invitation to participate in a special commemoration on the eighth anniversary of the terrorist attack, and he chose to take along Sheikh Akel Elatrash, commander of ZAKA's Bedouin Unit in the Negev. "We slept in the same room, ate our meals together, and toured Manhattan together," Meshi-Zahav tells ISRAEL21c. With one sporting a black velvet skullcap and long gray sidelocks and the other in traditional Arab robe and headdress, the two caused quite a stir. "People asked if we were part of a film," he recalls. 

Though Meshi-Zahav's life story could easily be mistaken for a screenplay, he is as real as the flesh and blood he encounters at the scenes of accidents, crimes and terrorist attacks. Brought up in the insular Jerusalem neighborhood of Mea Shearim, he was ingrained to distrust "the other" and to disdain Zionism as evil.

Arrested 34 Times for Anti-Zionist Agitation
"The haredi community is set up with 'walls' to protect us from outside influences" Meshi-Zahav says, speaking in Hebrew translated by his foreign media spokeswoman, Lydia Weitzman, and ZAKA development director David Rose. "I never knew there were Jews who act and behave differently and that they are also good people." The 11th generation Jerusalemite was taught that there was a correct and incorrect way to do things, "and if we did something the incorrect way, we were called Zionists." This same man, who proudly lit the torch ushering in the State of Israel's Independence Day celebrations in 2003, was arrested 34 times at anti-Zionist demonstrations as a youth.

At some point, the young Meshi-Zahav developed an affinity for the police who apprehended him time and again. "I began to see them as regular people who wanted to go home to their families after a day's work," he relates. "I started to see that a lot of things could be settled more easily by just sitting and talking to one another."

With this revelation as a backdrop, on July 6, 1989 Meshi-Zahav heard the explosion and subsequent screams emanating from a bus driven into a ravine by a terrorist. He and some friends rushed to the scene, determined to help tend the wounded and collect scattered body parts and blood for burial.

Though his mother had set a volunteering example with her regular visits to terminally ill patients, Meshi-Zahav knew neither first aid nor forensics. But he knew Jewish laws regarding human remains, and he discovered that no organization in Israel was authorized to do this gruesome but sacred work.

Free Access to Palestinian hospitals
His life took on a new purpose: "Even though we Israelis have different opinions about how the state should be, the time had come to live together." Over the next six years, he lay the groundwork for ZAKA--the only group of its kind worldwide, it is recognized by the United Nations as an international volunteer humanitarian organization. Donations make up most of its funding; about 10 percent of the budget comes from the government.
ZAKA in Haiti

During the Arab uprising or intifada from 2000 to 2006, Meshi-Zahav and about 600 volunteers rarely slept, constantly on alert for the next call. Working knee-deep in blood, Meshi-Zahav was fortified by his faith. "At the time, I thought we were dealing with kavod hamet--honoring the dead. By the end, I realized that we were actually honoring the living, because a family whose loved one cannot receive a full Jewish burial has no rest."

ZAKA developed an avenue for transferring the remains of terrorists to the Palestinian Authority. "Our humanitarian message is the key that allows us to open doors to all communities," Meshi-Zahav says. "Even during [those years], we were going into Palestinian hospitals when we needed to."

ZAKA in Haiti
Today, some 1,500 Jewish, Muslim and Druze ZAKA volunteers carry out lifesaving, rescue and recovery operations in Israel and around the world, garnering numerous awards including a citation from New York City for assistance following 9/11. The organization was one of those from Israel that was active in Haiti after the earthquake. Awareness of ZAKA's mission has grown in Israel and abroad.

I have no strikes or vacations
"Before ZAKA, if there was a traffic accident in Israel, paramedics would take care of the injured and a private ambulance would come to take the dead...but if there were body parts, nobody collected them," says Meshi-Zahav. "The firemen would wash down all the blood and that was the end of it. Now it is in the Israeli consciousness to call us instead."

ZAKA has also changed attitudes in the haredi community, now one of its largest pools of volunteers. In the early years, Meshi-Zahav's children were derided at school for their father's close cooperation with official Israeli agencies. But even when the social pressure eased, the time pressure did not. Calls come day and night from ZAKA's hotline or from the army, emergency services, police, firefighters, Homefront Command or foreign governments.
"My typical day's schedule is not fixed by me, but by the angel of death," Meshi-Zahav says. "I have no strikes or vacations."

ZAKA rescue scene
ZAKA at Burned Bus in Carmel Fire
The Carmel Forest fire earlier at the beginning of December was a case in point. ZAKA volunteers rappelled down a hill to reach the site of the burned bus carrying prison guards and sift through the charred wreckage to uncover all human remains before the victims were buried. Another team worked to identify the charred bodies. "The people of Israel owe you much gratitude for the holy work that you have been doing," Interior Minister Eli Yishai told them. While awaiting better times with perfect faith, Meshi-Zahav remains dedicated to his twin missions of disaster response and bettering society. "In the same way that enemies don't distinguish between different types of Jews, we too must be for everyone," he says. "Our guiding principle is our belief that all men were made in the image of God."

Joy and Grief~Update to the Carmel Fire

After fighting for his life for two weeks, Danny Hayat became the 44th victim of the disastrous Carmel fire on the 19th of December. On Tuesday, ten days after he succumbed to his burns, his widow, Hofit gave birth to a healthy girl at the Afula hospital--mother and daughter are both doing well.

Danny Hayat, his partner Uri Samandayev along with 16-year-old volunteer fireman Elad Rivan were called to the scene where the bus was trapped. The three fought the flames that engulfed the bus which had been carrying cadets to help with the evacuation of Damon Prison, which held terrorist prisoners. Samandayev and Rivan died at the scene, while Hayat was rescued in critical condition, suffering from burns to 65 percent of his body. He was hospitalized for two weeks at Rambam, and only recently had begun receiving artificial skin grafts. Family and friends had felt that he was getting stronger and would recover.

Danny Hayat was the founder and commander of the Jezreel rescue unit. The unit's flag hung outside the intensive care room while Hayat was in the hospital. In addition to his wife and baby daughter Danny left behind two sons.

A Bad Year for Israel

As we near the end of 2010, Israel has much sadness to bear. Terror attacks on public roads that left four dead--including a nine months pregnant woman, an horrific forest fire that had taken the lives of forty-four people--many of them young men and women just starting their lives. On Sunday another fire broke out near Maoz close to Mevesseret Zion but is under control, and today a train traveling between Haifa and Tel Aviv caught fire.

According to Arutz 7, the train was traveling from north to south on the Haifa-Tel Aviv tracks when it caught fire in the rear engine as they neared Shefayim, opposite the Ronit Farm. The fire spread to passenger cars causing passengers to shout for the driver to stop the train. 
When the train stopped the emergency system that was supposed to throw open the train's doors failed to operate, trapping the passengers. The windows in the cars are supposed to be broken in case of an emergency, but the emergency hammers for breaking them were all gone. 
Thankfully there was a fast-thinking Border Guard policeman on board who quickly loaded his weapon and fired at the windows to break them and allow people to get out. 
The rear engine car had caught fire, possibly due to an electrical malfunction. At least four cars on the passenger train were in flames, trapping passengers inside--injuring at least seventy-six people. Five people were evacuated in moderate condition and the rest are described a being lightly hurt suffering from smoke inhalation and minor cuts from trying to exit the windows.

Picture of the Day

Thanks to Elder of Ziyon for this wonderful poster. Do visit his site.

Christmas Greetings from PM Benjamin Netanyahu

PA Claims: Mary is Palestinain & Jesus was the First Shaheed

The Palestinian Authority always looks for ways to incite Christian hatred of Jews worldwide and this year is no exception. In 2009 Arutz 7 ran this post which claimed similar baiting comments. The incident that started things off this year was an AFP report that  a mayor in Nazareth objected to Christmas trees in the squares.

The story in its entirety can be read on Arutz 7 here. Here is an excerpt:
The suburb in question, Nazareth Illit, was established for the express purpose of creating a Jewish neighborhood next to Arab Nazareth. Over the past decade, however, thousands of Arabs have taken advantage of Israeli democracy to move  into the Jewish neighborhood, and it has become dangerous for Jews to walk down certain streets due to Arab harassment. Mayor Shimon Gapso and many of the Jewish residents see the demand by Arabs to put Christmas trees in public squares as just another act of Arab-nationalist chutzpah.

Of course, what they always fail to report is that in the areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority, Christians have been murdered, tortured, and intimidated into leaving ever since the PA took over. Nowhere is this more evident than in Bethlehem, a city which Christians hold sacred as Jesus's birthplace--although PA authorities are happy to receive tourist revenues during the Christian holiday seasons. If you are in doubt just check the population drop in Christians since the PA has been in charge! In Bethlehem, the Christian population went from a 60 percent majority in 1990 to a 40 percent minority in 2000, to about 15 percent of the city's total population in 2008. That figure continues to drop with threats and persecution. The same is true of Gaza where the Christian population is down to about 3,000 and don't forget that Hamas had Christian graves dug up because they were "contaminating the ground".

Christians are welcomed and protected by the Israeli government. As long as they are not trying to proselytize, Jews don't pay much attention to the tens of thousands who walk through the streets to visit their Holy Places. In fact, if you go to Ben Yehuda street in Jerusalem on most nights (including Motzei Shabbat--when Shabbat ends) you will find Christian groups singing their songs. Crowds gather to listen and some take pictures, but nobody bothers them.

Let's be honest here, if Israel were to be taken over by the Islamists every Christian and Jewish site would eventually be a mosque. These are the facts. Don't fall for propaganda.

A Blessing to All from Israel

For Israel, as in countries all over the world, this has been a tumultuous year. To many it seems that the world is getting closer and closer to the end of days. In Israel, particularly in Jerusalem,  the air is always "heavy".  There is a spiritual intensity that is always present. The sages say that it is because the Temple Mount is the center of all things:
"As the navel is set in the centre of the human body, so is the land of Israel the navel of the world...situated in the centre of the world, and Jerusalem in the centre of the land of Israel,  and the sanctuary in the centre of Jerusalem,  and the holy place in the centre of the sanctuary, and the ark in the centre of the holy place, and the foundation stone before the holy place, because from it the world was founded"...Midrash Tanchuma, Qedoshim. 

But for many this weekend the center of the world is the tiny town of Bethlehem, for it was there that their world, their salvation was born on a Holy night over two thousand years ago. All over the world this night is observed--or at the very least it is known. Some mark the day with reverence, some with decorated trees and gifts, and others with hatred--what do they fear? The message of Peace on Earth and Goodwill to All Men? How strange, that a gift of peace to the world, brought in a package of love can be feared by some. What is it about a tiny baby that strikes fear into the hears of some? Think about it...

There have been rumors that in the town of Bethlehem this year the symbol of the cross is banished because of fears of Islamic fundamentalism. Always there are those who think they can stifle the Holiness. You can read about it HERE but this post is not about aggression. Meanwhile, on the occasion of the celebrations for Christmas, the Israeli military has ordered troops deployed in the occupied Palestinian territories to facilitate the passage of Christian pilgrims at checkpoints--Bear in mind that this year Christmas Day falls on the Jewish Sabbath--these troops work on their Holy Day to insure Christian Pilgrims are safe.  Now that, is the true spirit that we hope will spread to the world.

David was filming a concert in Bethlehem this week, and we hope to have some postings for you after the weekend. He did say he had no problem entering and driving through the city. He said he could feel the "spirit" in the air and it was a wonderful evening.

As always the days fly by and the news is to great to cover. This blog is new and in the coming days and months with help from above we hope to bring you news from Israel as it happens. We want to share with you the daily living, good and bad. 

But, for today--for this weekend celebration of the Holy Birth--we at Jerusalem Vistas / Israel Vision send to you our friends and partners our heartfelt wishes for a Safe, and Holy Christmas Day, filled with Peace, Goodwill, and the love of your family.

Kudos to the Governor of Arizona

I read this letter on Mesopotamia West. I am reprinting it for you to read. All around the Politically Correct world we are being denied the right to openly celebrate our Holidays and Holy Days. We are being forced to take the "Christ" out of Christmas, and the Menorah out of Hannukah because it may be "offensive to some cultures". I reject this completely. Christmas has always been the celebration of the Birth of Christ--End of Story. We must stand up and refuse to allow our history and Judeo-Christian faith to be erased. Merry Christmas to Governor Jan Brewer and all or our friends everywhere. Here is the Governors letter:
Dear Friends,
An Executive Order that I issued last year encourages the celebration of Christmas and Hanukkah and prohibits any censorship of these religious holidays.

As you may know, in the past, state and local officials in Arizona (and elsewhere) have attempted to strip both Christmas and Hanukkah of their meaning, including establishment of policies forbidding state employees from placing religious items of celebration at their desks, re-naming of Christmas trees as “holiday” trees, and renaming of Menorahs as “candlesticks.”

Under my administration, I will call things what they are...a Christmas Tree and a Menorah...and will gladly allow both Christmas and Hanukkah to be celebrated at the State Capitol. I encourage my colleagues and fellow elected officials to do the same.
Finally, during this Christmas season, make a difference in our community by volunteering your time or making a donation to a worthy cause. An organization that I support, Hope & A Future, is making a difference this Christmas by providing gifts and clothing to foster children. I encourage you to learn more about Hope & A Future and make a difference in our community through this charity or another charity of your choice.

Merry Christmas! 
May God bless you, your home, and all of Arizona,
Sincerely, Jan Brewer Governor

Amen Governor!

Tragic Attack and Murder

The news is full of the story of two women who were brutally attacked while hiking near Beit Shemesh. There are reports on all the news sites, but YNet has the most current update at this link.

Israel Insider posted the first details. Here is an excerpt. You can read the entire story at their site.

An American tourist killed in a forest outside Jerusalem was employed by an evangelical missionary cult (CMJ) that promotes Christianity with the primary purpose of converting Jews. Kristine Luken, in her mid-40s, was stabbed to death in mysterious circumstances Saturday while hiking with a "messianic" female friend, Kaye Susan Wilson, a tour guide for the missionary organization. 

On Saturday, the two headed for the wooded hills southwest of Jerusalem,  Wilson told Israeli reporters from her hospital bed Sunday, telling them that she and Luken were attacked by two Arab men with what she said looked like a large bread knife, an unusual choice for terrorists, although in an interview with Yediot she acknowledged that she had taken out a small "lady knife" of her own when she felt they were in danger.

Police have issued a blackout on their investigation, and there is no indication whether Wilson's "lady knife" had on it signs of blood. However, YNetnews reports that on Saturday, police officers arrived at Wilson's house in Givat Ze'ev and spoke with her neighbors in an effort to find out more details.

"I heard about the incident in the news and suddenly a few police officers appeared and told me what happened," Shulamit Avital, Wilson's landlord and neighbor recounted on Sunday. "They asked me to open the door to her apartment and took out some documents and personal belongings. No one knows the details of the incident," she added.

Wilson claimed she escaped to a nearby road after pretending to be dead, hearing her dying friends screams. After the alleged killers had left, she said, she rolled down a hill to a road side, where she was seen by two Israeli families, who notified police. She suffered only superficial wounds. Luken's body, hands bound and bearing multiple stab wounds much more serious than those of Wilson, was discovered Sunday morning in the nearby forest.

The forest is inside Israel but close to the "green line," near the Palestinian villages of Husan and Wadi Fukin.

While missionary activity to convert Jews is illegal in Israel, the laws are not severe, however, the Arab community takes a march darker view of conversions. Most Muslim countries have severe penalties--including death--for proselytizing and for  those who try to leave Islam.

The people in Israel and around the world are praying that those responsible are caught quickly. Tragically, this will not bring back Kristine Luken to those who loved her.

Christmas Around the World~Arlington Cemetery

Christmas pictures are making the rounds so we will be sharing some of them with you each day. I am starting with Arlington Cemetery, because this story is truly inspiring. Maybe the rest of the world isn't interested but what is wrong with the US Media that there is little of no mention of those who have given their all for freedom? Shame on them. Follow the links to learn more of the wonderful project and do watch the video below--be sure to have tissues on hand.

Christmas at Arlington Cemetery
Rest easy, sleep well my brothers.
Know the line has held, your job is done.
Rest easy, sleep well.
Others have taken up where you fell, the line has held.
Peace, peace, and farewell...

The background story about  the many wreaths at Arlington Cemetery is beautiful. Each year some 5,000 wreaths are donated by the Worcester Wreath Co. of Harrington, Maine. The owner, Merrill Worcester, not only provides the wreaths, but covers the trucking expense as well. He's done this since 1992. Also, most years, groups of Maine school kids combine an educational trip to DC with this event to help out. Making this even more remarkable is the fact that Harrington is in one the poorest parts of the state.

Blessings of the Season to Merrill Worcester and the people who work to do this amazing work. To the teachers in Maine who are teaching students real values--you will reap the rewards of the seeds you are sowing--never stop! You can read more about this wonderful work at the link.

With all the bad things going on in the world this is one touching act of love that should be shared. Please do pass it on to everyone you know. May God Bless and Keep all the Fallen Soldiers and Protect those who are still fighting.

The 12 Days of Winter...What?

This is an interesting take on an old tune. Our society in the west has adopted an air of politically correct secularism. This is the result. I urge you to listen to the words--they are too true! Some may think it's "cute" but I think it is a sad statement on the world as it is today. Hat Tip to Mesopotamia West for finding this.

Hezbollah Chief~Throw the Jews Out

Hassan Nasrallah
A news flash from Arutz 7 reports that Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah said in a speech Thursday, that the removal of Jews from the Land of Israel and conquering the land by Arabs was a principle that the Arab world could not surrender on. Speaking at a Shi'ite religious event, Nasrallah said that “we will bring thousands of martyrs” to kill Jews in Jerusalem. “We will never recognize Israel. We will not surrender a grain of Palestine's sand.” 

Nasrallah spends most of his time hiding in caves, and as he was born in an eastern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon one has to wonder what his connection to "Palestine" is--other than his complete hatred of Jews.

Samir Kuntar & Hassan Nasrallah
Hezbollah has long been fighting for control in Lebanon and is gaining strength--to the point where he is threatening action if the report on the Hariri inquiry is released. He is a Supporter of terrorists and murderers, like Samir Kuntar--recently released by Israel in exchange for the bodies of two young soldiers who were kidnapped and murdered by Hezbollah. Kuntar was part of the attempted kidnapping of an Israeli family in Nahariya that resulted in the deaths of four Israelis. In a most sadistic attack they captured a father and his four year old daughter. Kuntar shot the father in front of the child, then slammed the child's head on a rock and continued to smashed it in with his rifle until there was no life left. These are the followers of Hassan Nasrallah. 

Would he attack Israel? Well, he would certainly incite and scream for an all out attack, but like the majority of the leaders in the Arab world he will rant and rave and call for young men to die, but  if (when) war breaks out, Nasrallah, like with the last skirmishes,  will be holed up in his caves, screaming for Jewish blood...

Turkey Gets Apology from MK Danon

When the Mavi Marmara left Turkey it was to the screams of Kaiber, Kaiber el Yahoud, and multiple testimonies from terrorists hoping to get their 72 virgins. Nine of them succeeded and the fake peace mission was exposed. Since then we have had to listen to Turkey's PM, Recep Tayyip Erdogan ranting and raving every time a TV camera is in range. He wants compensation so high it will break the Israeli government, he wants sanctions, he wants apologies and on and on.

On Tuesday, Israeli MK Danny Danon of Likud gave him his “apology” via a letter he read aloud in the Knesset. It doesn't get much better than this...

To the Prime Minister of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan,  
(by way of the Turkish ambassador to Israel)
Regarding: The request for an apology to the government of Turkey for the events aboard the Mavi Marmara of the Gaza flotilla.
I would like to apologize to you in the name of the entire state of Israel for the fact that the state of Israel did not take sufficient care to check the terrorist ship Marmara before it left Turkey. That would have prevented the ship from being armed with guns and other weapons, and from transporting terrorist activists under the patronage of the Turkish government.

Because of our excellent relationship, and your great respect for the state of Israel and the Zionist enterprise, I must apologize for the fact that the naval commandos who, when they reached the ship, were greeted by armed terrorist resistance that aimed to murder them did not immediately defend themselves with gunfire, and instead acted with restraint toward the pretend “peace activists” who sought to kill them.

Apologies for the fact that the commandos acted carefully, taking into account the presence of civilians on the ship, and killed only nine terrorists. If the state authorities had known that there were terrorists on the ship, the order would have been given to kill any person endangering our troops.

With your permission, one more apology is necessary, for Israel's decision to release the dangerous terror supporters who were on the ship and not put them on trial for attempted murder, and even to pay for their tickets home.

And finally, please accept our full and heartfelt apology, for not asking the United Nations to censure Turkey, and for not demanding an investigation into the connection between the IHH terrorist organization,  your party and you, Mr. Erdogan.

Warm wishes,
MK Danny Danon, speaking on behalf of the Israeli Knesset

Canadian Bloggers are Being Threatened !

This Post Re-Printed with Permission: The blogging world contains a wealth of information and I spend a good deal of time reading a number of outstanding blogs. Each of the sites mentioned in this post have a track record for consistently good reporting and are recommended reading.
Coming to a City Near You...

While reading Mesopotamia West I found this item: At least two Canadian bloggers have received death threats from a woman by the name of Afarin Maleki-Raei.The first threat went to blogger Blazing Cat Fur..."I vow I will avenge my family's honor, in the name of Allah. I will make a formal complaint Monday to the OHRC and they will handle you. You will be arrested by those respected detectives. Even if it takes every penny I have or I have to sell my skin I will get you. You will know what suffering means you dirty Zionist garage. [sic]"

And the second went to The Propagandist after it reported on the first threat: "You will see the power and glory our family has in this country. This isn't Gaza strip where you can bully and murder innocents because of your weapons supplied by your Xristian [sic] blood thirsty friends. This is Canada. Islamic Canada. We Iranians have built up in 10 years what you Zionist pigs could not achieve in 50 in Toronto. And this is what scares you.I asked you nicely to remove all references to my family. You did not comply now you will deal with the glorious and brutal York Regional Police. I declare a Fatwa on you and your loved ones. That means we can strike anytime, any place and their blood will be your issue. I told you the consequences will be dire and they will. I suspect you will see the first of it this week."

Mesopotamia West also notes that there is a history behind the threats..."There's more to this story, and this family, judging by this post"...

Apparently the site at the link, Toronto Auto Station Scam was set up to deal with the scams and harassment of this family of "Immigrants".--I found this in their sidebar: "If you have been harassed, scammed, or threatened by the owners of Toronto Auto Station or any member of the Maleki (re: Maleki-Raei) family, please share your story and contact us at: correspondence will be kept confidential. If you have any documents you would like us to post we will edit out all personal information to protect your safety."

From Blazing Cat Fur
Blazing Cat Fur has posted about this here (dirty Zionist Garage) and again here (Finally! My Own Fatwa!). Blazing Cat Fur also gives the email of the individual involved,

As you can see there is a long history and you need to follow the links  and read it all. I find it  troubling that these people come into a free, democratic country as immigrants, milk the system, cheat,  and for some reason, when exposed, are very comfortable to publicly use and print names of police officers  while sending out threats...umm and what are these police officers doing about this? Why is this lunatic Iranian throwing out their names so freely? I also find it disturbing to see them claim "This is Canada. Islamic Canada." Excuse Me?? What is Happening in Canada!

Wake up people because Creeping Sharia is picking up speed and using political correctness is like pouring gasoline on a fire.

Time to stand up and insist that Canadian Law is upheld--and I do believe it is illegal to break  Canada's laws and  then use the names of Canadian police officers to threaten those that expose criminal activities.

I will not print the officers' names, but they are given on the sites in the post. To that end, I encourage everyone to visit the sites and support the bloggers who expose this evil infiltration--they are on the front lines of the battle...but we will all be next unless we stamp out this darkness that is invading the free world.

New Terror for Hevron

 The Cave of the Patriarchs is Judaism's second holiest site and has been designated a National Heritage Site by the Israeli government. From the Travels of Reb Benjamin of Tudelah (1173):"And in the valley is the Cave of Machpela, if a Jew should pay the Ishmaelite watchman, he will open for him an iron gate. From there one descends stairs with a candle in hand. Upon reaching the third cave one will find six graves. These are the graves of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and opposite them, Sarah, Rebecca and Leah, And inside the cave are many barrels, filled with bones of Israelites who would bring the bones of their dead to the Cave in the age of Israel.

The area around Hevron has always been a hot spot and now the temperatures have been upped. Arutz 7 has reported that the Palestinian Authority is building a "new" neighborhood next to the resting place of our forefathers and mothers in an area that is under "Full Israeli Control".  As if this isn't bad enough, the "New Neighbours" are going to be freed terrorists and their families brought in from other cities and towns of Judea and Samaria!

Security people say they are aware of the risk but attempts to bring the issue up have been blocked "out of political considerations" ...

This Holiday Season~Take Time to Remember

 Email can be valuable, annoying, emotional and many other things. This arrived today and with it a blurb declaring it was written by a Soldier stationed in Afghanistan.

A quick search turned up many authors, the earliest credit given to a Marine stationed in Okinawa Japan (circa December 1986). Whether is it American, Australian, British, Canadian, Israeli or from any other nation whose soldiers are fighting around the world, this is a beautiful reminder of what they are sacrificing for us. 

 Let's stop and think of our heroes, living and dead, who give of themselves for us. Please, pass this on to one and all.

The Night Before Christmas
 Twas the night before Christmas, He lived all alone, In a one bedroom house, Made of plaster and stone.
I had come down the chimney, With presents to give, And to see just who, In this home did live.
I looked all about, A strange sight I did see, No tinsel, no presents, Not even a tree.
No stocking by the mantle, Just boots filled with sand, On the wall hung pictures, Of far distant lands.
With medals and badges, Awards of all kinds, A sober thought, Came through my mind.
For this house was different, It was dark and dreary, I found the home of a soldier, Once I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping, Silent, alone, Curled up on the floor, In this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle, The room in such disorder, Not how I pictured, A "Nation's" soldier.
Was this the hero, Of whom I'd just read?, Curled up on a poncho, The floor for a bed?
I realized the families, That I saw this night, Owed their lives to these soldiers, Who were willing to fight.
Soon round the world, The children would play, And grownups would celebrate, A bright Christmas Day.
They all enjoyed freedom, Each month of the year, Because of the soldiers, Like the one lying here.
I couldn't help wonder, How many lay alone, On a cold Christmas Eve, In a land far from home.
The very thought brought A tear to my eye, I dropped to my knees, And started to cry.
The soldier awakened, And I heard a rough voice,
"Santa, don't cry.  This life is my choice I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more, 
My life is my God, My country, my corps."
The soldier rolled over, And drifted to sleep,
I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.
I kept watch for hours, So silent and still,
And we both shivered, From the cold night's chill.
I didn't want to leave, On that cold, dark night,
This guardian of honour, So willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over, With a voice, soft and pure, Whispered,
"Carry on Santa, It's Christmas Day, all is secure."
One look at my watch, And I knew he was right, 
"Merry Christmas my friend, And to all a good night."
God Bless our Troops!

Israeli Invention Enables Paralayzed People To Walk

The world loves to hate Israel. Sometimes it seems that there is a push on to destroy us. So, while Iran is developing nuclear weapons, N. Korea is shooting at S. Korea, and the PA and Hamas are trying to blow us off the face of the earth...what do we do? We give a gift to the world. An amazing invention that helps paralyzed people to stand and walk again....Enjoy!

The Humanitarian Crisis of the Gaza Mall

The media is always crying about the poor, starving oppressed "palestinians" living in Gaza.

First, remember that Gaza is under the total control of Hamas. Israel only stops weapons and weapon-making items from going across the border and has been shipping goods into Gaza daily--even during the Cast Lead Operation--except when the Gaza terrorists are firing rockets.
Second, Egypt is also blockading Gaza from their border--nobody likes to speak of that.
Third, Israel provides hight quality medical care in its hospitals to tens of thousands of Gazans--mostly at the expense of Israeli taxpayers. Sadly some of those who received the best treatment returned to try and blow up the very people who helped them.

Fourth, Untold  amounts of money is going into "Aid Flotillas" for these poor people living under apartheid, but the Mavi Marmara carried only passengers and their personal belongings. Many passengers carried large sums of money on their body. There was no Humanitarian Aid on this ship (just lot of IHH Terrorists). Elder also posts a report about the biased whitewash from the media and the UN. Elder of Ziyon, an outstanding source for facts on the Middle East has compiled this short video. Do visit his site.
Finally, I love Elder's note at the end of the clip--"The mall is made of string and glue. It has to be , because we all know there is no cement or iron in Gaza"  
Enjoy !

07 December 1941~The Battle of Pearl Harbor

On the morning of December 7, 1941 the Japanese launched the attack on Pearl Harbor (called the Hawaii Operation or Operation Z  by the Japanese Imperial General Headquarters, and the Battle of Pearl Harbor by some Americans). It  was a surprise (cowardly?) military strike conducted by the Imperial Japanese Navy against the United States naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The Americans are taken completely by surprise. The first attack wave targets airfields and battleships. The second wave targets other ships and shipyard facilities. The air raid lasts until 9:45 a.m. Eight battleships are damaged, with five sunk. Three light cruisers, three destroyers and three smaller vessels are lost along with 188 aircraft. The casualty list includes 2,335 servicemen and 68 civilians killed, with 1,178 wounded. Included are 1,104 men aboard the Battleship USS Arizona killed after a 1,760-pound air bomb penetrated into the forward magazine causing catastrophic explosions. We must never forget...

Sweden's Multicultural Nightmare

On November 24th, 2010 Sweden's parliament, the Riksdag, voted for the most sweeping changes to the country's constitution since 1974.  The document contained many significant changes to Sweden's constitution, but public debate on it has remained conspicuously silent. Pat Condell gives his unique opinion on this and a few other "Swedish Delights"

Canada Got it Right This Time

Lately the troops who are battling evil in the mid-east on our behalf have been taking a lot of flak. Not just with anti war protests, but with attacks so cruel they make one ask if we have begun the decent into madness. There has been everything from calling them murderers to to charges being laid against them for "following orders" on a battlefield. Seems our politically correct leaders have lost their way and can't seem to identify their enemy, much less figure out how to defeat them. 

This story is not new and somewhat late for a Veterans Day post but it is one of the few things these days that seem to be "done right". As a Canuck I am proud that the government decided to publicly honour one of the many who have, and still do, put their lives on the line so the very ones calling them names can do so "safely".

Take a close look at the right-hand side of a Canadian $10 bill--you will see an old veteran standing at attention near the Ottawa war memorial. His name is Robert Metcalfe and he died in September 2008 at the age of 90. Like most heroes not much is known about him by the general public. Given his exploits in the Second World War it is a wonder he survived at all. 

Born in England, he was one of the 400,000 members of the British Expeditionary Force sent to the mainland where they found themselves facing the new German warfare technique--the Blitzkrieg. While treating a wounded comrade he was hit in the legs by shrapnel. En route to hospital, his ambulance came under fire from a German tank, which then miraculously ceased fire. Evacuated from Dunkirk on HMS Grenade, two of the sister ships with them were sunk. When he recovered, he was sent to allied campaigns in North Africa and Italy. En route his ship was chased by the German battleship Bismarck.

In North Africa he served under General Montgomery against Rommel, the Desert Fox and later was sent into the Italian campaign, where he met his future wife, a lieutenant and physiotherapist in a Canadian hospital. They were married in the morning by the mayor of the Italian town, and again in the afternoon by a British padre.

After the war they settled in Chatham, Ontario where he went into politics and became the warden (chairman) of the county and on his retirement he and his wife moved to Ottawa.  At the age of 80 he wrote a book about his experiences--I wonder how many people have read it.

One day out of the blue he received a call from a government official asking him to go downtown for a photo op. He wasn't told what the photo was for or why they chose him. "He had no idea he would be on the bill," his daughter said. Too bad this story didn't go viral while he was still alive.

May God give you peace Robert Metcalfe.

A New Spin on the Chanukah Story!

This is a cute and easy to understand version of the Chanukah story. This time of year in Israel Dreidels are everywhere, and yes, people do play the game. Enjoy!

Chanukah Music~The Maccabeats

Here is an upbeat song for Chanukah. These young kids can sing!

Tradgedy~Deputy Commander Ahuva Tomer Dies

Reprinted from frumlife.   Deputy Commander Ahuva Tomer, the highest ranking woman officer in the Israel Police  Force, died on Monday after succumbing to critical injuries sustained in the Carmel fire. She was driving to assist the bus carrying 40 Prison Service cadets that was trapped (and subsequently burned). She herself was trapped and suffered burns throughout her body. Deputy Commander Tomer was initially taken to Carmel Hospital in Haifa, where a team of 20 doctors worked to revive her--finally succeeding in restoring a pulse--"against all odds," in their words. She was then transferred to Rambam Hospital for continued treatment.
Deputy Commander Tomer was one of the best-known, highest-ranking officers in the northern region.

She made history in 1997 when she was appointed Police Commander in Nahariya, and again in 2009 when she was appointed Commander of the lsraels largest  station in Haifa. Well respected by all, she had achieved what no other woman before her had. Commander Tomer did this by hard work and dedication, never using her gender to gain advantage.

The picture on the left shows the bus, with her white care (left of bus) as the flames engulf them.

The below video was made as Deputy Commander Tomer completed and interview. She is shown (2:56) in her car before she drove into the flames in an attempt to help the trapped cadets on the bus. "Baruch dayan ha'emet"

Pray for Israel~The Disaster Continues

Fleeing the Bus Shot thru Back Window by R. Sofer
This information is taken from several blogs and news reports. The first story is from a blog called Shearim. This link is to an Israeli newscast that followed Israeli photographer Roni Sofer back to the location where he observed the burning bus and in fact saved three of the people from the burning wreck. He is an expert photographer and wanted to get pictures of the disaster. He describes the road as they drive down is saying that very quickly there were "walls of fire".  He soon realized he must make a quick escape and turned around to drive to safety. There were two other cars and the bus full of prison guards coming and he warned them to make a run for it. The two cars turned around (Note: the driver of one of the cars--from Tiberias--is still missing). The bus, unable to turn around was already on fire and Roni saw three people--a woman and two men--running towards him asking for help. The video shows the pictures he was able to snap of them running from the bus through his rear window. They escaped to safety, but the guards and Haifa police commander, Ahuva Tomer, who was in one of the cars did not. Ahuva Tomer is now in critical condition burned over 60% of her body and fighting for her life.
American 747 Supertanker

The American 'Evergreen 747 Super Tanker is now over Carmel joining fighters from many nations in the fight to control the massive fire that is still burning.

Meanwhile the crew of an air force plane fighting the fires spotted two men in a pickup truck trying to start a fire near one of the areas where a part of the blaze had recently been put out. The air force crew contacted police on the ground with the location of the truck and minutes later police arrived on the scene and arrested the suspects. In the last days arabs around the country have been starting fires to disrupt the efforts in Carmel. Hezbollah is celebrating the lost of life and forest in Northern Israel. “The great Carmel fire has embarrassed Israel's firefighting capabilities and proved its almost complete incompetence,” crowed the Hezbollah-linked Al-Manar TV news network. The arab press is  claiming that Ithis shows Israel is weak and no longer able to defend itself because we had to ask for help--and the dancing in the streets continues.

PA Firefighters Arriving to Help Israel
On the positive side, twenty-one Palestinian Firefighters have entered Israel through the Salem crossing accompanied by Administration Personnel. According to Ayash, the Palestinian people viewed the disaster with a great deal of sorrow.  He said the cooperation has nothing to do with the relations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. "We came here to help without addressing the issue of Jews and Arabs," Ayash added. "We will stay in the Carmel region until the fire is put out." Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had telephoned President Mahmoud Abbas to express his thanks at "neighbours helping neighbours".

This disaster is estimated to cost 3-4 billion dollars and take decades to recover from. Israelis have already started the long task. They begin by laying their dead to rest, taking in the displaced and starting to rebuild. During this week of Chanukah we know one thing, that miracles do happen and that is proven by the biggest miracle of all--we are still here and we are still standing together.

Overview of the Events and Firefighting Efforts

URGENT ! Israel Needs Your Prayers Now !

Please pray for the dead, the injured and their families. We need a miracle to bring an end to this disaster, the largest and deadliest since Israel's founding in 1948. Whether or not you are part of a prayer chain, Please, Pray for Israel Today!

A huge forest fire in Carmel has killed about 42 people on Thursday,  December 2nd. More than 15,000 people have been evacuated from towns and villages as the fires continue to blaze out of control.
Most of the dead are IPS cadets,  the majority of them young Druze in their 20's. They were being transported  by bus after assisting in the evacuation of 500 prisoners (mainly arab) in the Damon Prison. At  some point the fire reached a great speed--covering a mile in five minutes, according to a firefighting officer--catching the bus in the flames with no chance of escape. 

Police officers in a separate vehicle were also trapped by the flames. Two of them are missing, and the Commander of the Haifa Police, Lt-Col. Ahuva Tomer, is in serious condition after suffering burns all over her body. Doctors at Rambam Hospital in Haifa are fighting for her life.

Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, a resident of Usfiyeh, spoke to a news Channel and said he has received information that the fire was a terror act. The fire  was  reported to have spread from three locations simultaneously--making arson likely. 

One observer said "It was amazing--within 30 minutes almost half the forest was in flames".Israeli firefighters said it was the biggest forest fire in the country’s history, with some 7,000 acres (2,800 hectares) of land destroyed.

So far this year numerous large fires, many set by arabs, have depleted Israel's reserves of fire-fighting chemicals, and the remaining supply will be exhausted by Friday morning. Israeli planes are on the way to France for more supplies. In addition, Seven foreign aircraft are making their way to Israel: four from Greece, two from Azerbaijan and one from Cyprus. In addition, Four aircraft are expected from France, two or three from Russia, and two from Spain.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said: "I shall declare a national day of mourning but right now we haven't got the time to mourn and get into inquiries"

He flew over the scene by helicopter and in a briefing, told reporters "People have showed tremendous strength of spirit, divine heroism, and sacrificed themselves to save others. I want to say to the families that are discovering their own personal disasters, we support you and love you. To our Druze brothers--I know you suffered a major blow. "These were astonishing people who displayed great courage."

And Now, Here is the Kicker:
Radio Haifa reported that Arabs have been Dancing in the Streets of Furadis, just south of Haifa, in Celebration of the Deadly Fire ! While no other country in the middle east--to this very day--will give citizenship or any basic rights to "Palestinian Arabs", Israel has--these people vote, have access to education and medical care like every Israeli--and they dance in the streets when disaster strikes the country that feeds them. Any wonder Israel does not believe we have a partner for peace?

Now, more than ever we ask you to contact everyone you know to join us in  prayer,  asking the God of all Creation to show mercy on his suffering children. Israel needs you. Thanks from all of us to all of you.

Do You Have Kids Attending UBC?

If you do here is an interesting little tidbit.  All UBC students pay a fee to support student activities. One of the groups has proposed donating $700 to a new Gaza Flotilla--an attempt to deliver aid directly to Hamas (a recognized terrorist group), bypassing Israeli inspections. The UBC student group that oversees student funds did do the responsible thing, and put a temporary stop to the Hamas donation, pending a vote by the full student council. And this is creating a fuss!

However, the pro-Hamas students have reacted with a campaign of abuse and intimidation against the student who made the responsible decision, UBC Alma Mater Society president Bijan Ahmadian. Ahmadian tweeted: “Shaken from the physical intimidation by the SPHR President at my office today. Had to call security to remove him” SPHR is the acronym for “Solidarity with Palestinian Human Rights", a UBC student group. Seems like the students at the University of British Columbia are getting a little taste of Hamas thuggery right on their own campus. Does anyone even question the fact that these people who purport to speak for “human rights” frequently engage in physical intimidation--or use student-activity money to subsidize a terrorist group on the other side of the globe?

Has anyone asked how it is that Hamas can be building yet another Mega Mall in Gaza? Or questioned why a leader of Hamas has $4.5 million to buy a piece of land to build himself a mansion? Has anyone even looked at the of luxury hotels in Gaza?  Why are Gazans near the top of the list for obesity in the world? Do you have any idea how many billions of dollars are poured into Gaza--ever ask just who is getting it all? BBC just ran a report stating 20 groups  operating in Gaza have concerns that there is no improvement since Israel eased the border six months ago...

This is part of an article from Elder of Zion--do follow the link for the whole story:
...the plan is to construct multi-story buildings and neighborhoods built as independent residential areas. A mosque will be set up at the center of each neighborhood, alongside shopping centers, schools and kindergartens. Access roads will be paved and even playgrounds for children. Hamas has allotted tens of millions of dollars to the building project. There is apparently no shortage of money. Generous donations are flowing in from Iran, Islamic associations across the Arab worlds, and governmental elements in Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, as well as Western elements.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who has been mercilessly pursuing Hamas in the West Bank, is aiding Gaza with millions of dollars, boasting that 57% of the Palestinian Authority budget is directed at the Strip. Abbas pays the salaries of 70,000 government workers from the post-Hamas era, maintains the health and education systems, and even funds some of Gaza's electricity production expenses.

Yes, there surely are poor people in Gaza (just like every place in the world), and yes, there are those that are being oppressed--by the very people your kids want to fund--Hamas.

For what University Education costs, does it not seem odd that your children are being groomed to support the people who would end of the very freedoms and democracy  that Canadians now enjoy? I'm just saying...

Please Watch to the End--Oh The Horror!

Weekly Bible Study~Vayeishev (Genesis 37:1 to 40:23)

This week we study Vayeishev which is found in Genesis 37:1 to 40:23.

Jacob is now living in Hebron with his twelve sons. His favorite is 17 year old Joseph, "And Israel loved Joseph more than all his sons, because he was a son of his old age"...Jacob makes a precious multi-colored coat for Joseph. His brother are jealous and see him as a dreamer and tale teller. When Joseph tells his brothers of two dreams that foretell of his destiny to rule over them, it is too much and they  become filled with envy and hatred.

The brothers plan to kill Joseph, and tell Jacob that a wild beast had attacked him. Reuven intervened: "Do not shed blood! Cast him into this pit, which is in the desert, but do not lay a hand upon him"...He was trying to buy time so that he could later save Joseph.

The brothers take Joseph's beautiful coat from him and throw him into a pit without food or water. While they are eating they see a caravan of Ishmaelites on their way from Gilead to Egypt. Judah suggests selling Joseph into slavery so they turn him over for for twenty silver pieces. When Reuven returns he is distraught. The brothers kill a kid and cover the coat with blood then send it to Jacob. Of course Jacob cannot be consoled over the loss of his favorite.

Judah takes Tamar as a wife for Er, his firstborn. But Er was very wicked and the Lord slew, him so Judah gave his second son, Onan to marry Tamar (*This was called a Levirate marriage) Onan knew the child would not be his so he decided to "spilled his seed". This made Gd angry so he put Onan to death as well. Judah tells Tamar to remain a widow in her father's house until the youngest son grows up "Lest he too die, like his brothers".
Judah's wife dies and after the mourning period he  leaves for Timnah. Tamar covers her face and goes to the crossroad where she sees that the youngest, Shelah has grown and realizes that Judah has deceived her. Judah notices her and thinks she is a harlot. He promises to pay her with a kid, but she asks for a pledge until it arrives--"Your signet, your cloak, and the staff that is in your hand". Judah agrees. As a result of their liaison Tamar conceives--she leaves with the pledge before the kid is delivered. When her pregnancy becomes known Judah accuses her and sentences her to death. But Tamar shows him the "pledged items" and he admits his mistake in not giving her to his son. Tamar bears twins--when the hand of the first appears the midwife puts a crimson thread on it. Then the hand is drawn back and the other twin is born causing the midwife to declare "With what strength you have strengthened yourself!". When Judah sees this he names him Perez. Tamar's strength of character and determination produced Peretz, whose descendants would be David and his dynasty, and eventually the Mashiach.

Meanwhile the slavers sell Joseph to Potiphar, Pharaoh's chamberlain. Joseph has integrity and managerial skills and is soon appointed to run Potiphar's household. Joseph is successful and becomes knowm for his handsome features and beautiful complexion. Potiphar's wife sees his beauty and tries to seduce Joseph, but he refuses to sin against Gd. One day when they are alone in the house she grabs his coat--but he flees, leaving the coat behind. She accuses him of trying to seduce her using the coat as evidence. His master is very angry and throws him in prison, but Gd is watching over him and he is soon chosen by the warden to run the prison.

While he is in prison Joseph meets the cup  and the baker of the king of Egypt. When they have disturbing dreams and the next day when Joseph see them he notices their worried looks. They tell him of the dreams and Joseph says: "Don't interpretations belong to God? Tell [them] to me now". He interprets their dreams. Just as he predicts, within three days the baker is executed and the wine steward is re-appointed to his former position in the household. Joseph asks the wine steward to intervene on his behalf with Pharaoh, but when he goes back to his job he forgets all about Joseph.

 Next week Joseph finally gets out of prison when Pharaoh has dreams that nobody can interpret. He marries, famine hits Egypt and ten of his brothers come looking for food. Joseph recognizes them and sets them up so they have to bring their youngest brother to him...stay tuned.
