There have long been concerns here in Israel that the Palestinian forces being trained and armed by US General Dayton could one day turn on Israel. This is not so far-fetched. Several terrorist murders in the past have indeed been carried out by PA forces using arms supplied by the US. The following segments are taken from a report in Arutz 7 online news:
Palestinian Forces Armed & Trained by the USA
The IDF’s Nachshon Battalion’s recent training exercises have included simulated battles against Palestinian Authority security forces. The mock battles were intended to prepare the soldiers for the possibility that the PA security forces in Judea and Samaria, that were trained in the past five years by US Lieutenant General Keith Dayton, would one day turn on Israel.
…it was held against the backdrop of recent “accelerated contacts, far from sight and from the media, for a reconciliation agreement between the Palestinian Authority (led by Fatah chief Mahmoud Abbas) and Hamas.
…An agreement between Abbas’s PA and Hamas would “completely change reality in Judea and Samaria
…Central Command has also noticed a tightening of ties between Judea and Samaria terror cells and those that operate in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Gaza.
Palestinian Authority Forces
The PA charter still calls for the complete and utter destruction of Israel. As for the Oslo agreements? NOT ONE has been complied with by the Palestinians. Not a single one has been kept.
Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, and indeed all of Israel for evil is rising in our world.What will be the result if the world refuses to see the clear and present danger? Who will stand in the gap if Israel is squashed? Those who believe know the answer.
Gilad Shalit, was captured on 26 June 2006, in an ambush by Palestinian militants. His kidnappers entered Israeli territory through an underground tunnel near the Kerem Shalom crossing, on the Israeli side of the border. This Action Violates International Law. Although Gilad Shalit is a soldier in the Israeli Army, he cannot be considered a Prisoner of War because Hamas made no official declaration of war and therefore his abduction was illegal. Gilad Shalit is a hostage today of the Terrorist movement Hamas. Here is a transcript of the last Sign of Life from Giald Shalit. It was Video taped on 14 Sepember 2009. * Translation taken from Haaretz newspaper, Israel.
I am Gilad, son of Aviva and Noam Shalit, brother of Hadas and Yoel, who lives in Mitzpe Hila. My identification number is 300097029. Today is Monday, September 14, 2009. As you can see, I am holding in my hand today’s edition of the newspaper Palestine, September 14, 2009, published in Gaza.
I read newspapers in search of information about me. I hope to find some kind of information indicating that my release and return home is imminent. I have been waiting and hoping for a long time for the day that I am released.
I hope that the current administration, headed by Benjamin Netanyahu won’t waste this opportunity to achieve a deal, and as a result I will finally be able to realize my dream and be released.
I want to send my regards to my family and to tell them that I love them and miss them very much, and pray for the day that I will see them again.
Dad, Yoel and Hadas, do you remember the day you came to visit me at my base in the Golan Heights, on December 31, 2005, which, if I’m not mistaken, is known as Revaiyah Bet?
We took a tour around the base and you took my picture atop the Merkava tank, and on one of the old tanks at the entrance to the base. We then went to a restaurant in one of the Druze villages, and on the way, we took each other’s pictures on the side of the road with the snow capped Hermon Mountain as our backdrop.
I want to tell you that I feel well, in terms of health, and the Mujahideen, of the Iz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, are treating me wonderfully. Thank you very much, and goodbye.
In solidarity with Gilad Shalit and his family, Amisrael, a non profit organization operating in South America has taken up the cause of Gilad Shalit. Most notably, Amisrael will present to Noam Shalit, Gilad’s father copies of resolutions made by fifteen Latin American states recognizing the violation of Gilad Shalit’s human rights and demanding his release.
The Israel Vision film crew went to a press conference in Jerusalem and was there to witness the occasion. Dr. William Soto, international Director and Founder of AMISRAEL was quoted as saying, “By gathering broad support from peoples of diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds, we also show the people of Israel that they are not alone, and that there is a strong community rallying to support their rights”…Post by David Rawlings
All over Israel the trees are heavy with pomegranates. This amazing fruit is desirable for its healthy, antioxidant qualities. The word pomegranate, “rimon” in Hebrew, is derived from the Latin words “pomum” (apple) and “granatus” (seeded). We read in Exodus 28:33-34, that the kohanim are told to weave pomegranates into the hem of their robes, and right up to today, Jews eat pomegranates on Rosh Hoshanah (New Year) for its symbolism of fruitfulness, knowledge, learning, and wisdom. Some even claim it was the “forbidden fruit” in the garden of Eden. A search on the internet produces a wealth of interesting articles (and great recipes).
You can make juice, shakes, cocktails, jams, jellies, marinades and sauces for lamb or chicken, throw it over your cereal, mix it into yogurt, or toss it into a salad for a marvelous taste. The culinary ideas are endless, as are the stories. One interesting story is about the link to the 613 “mitzvahs” (commandments) of the Torah. It is said that if you count the seeds in a pomegranate you will find exactly 613–one for each mitzvah. If anyone takes the time–let us know how many you found! Good Health and Good Eating!
Everyone in Israel, and in many countries around the world have heard the name Gilad Shalit. What parent would not feel pain for the Shalits in their struggle to have their son returned? They say he is hidden underground–Try to imagine what it must be like for him. After the rescue of the miners in Chile, it is said that they (the miners) will suffer emotionally–What of Gilad Shalit?
Gilad Shalit has “never” been visited by the Red Cross or any international aid agency. Indeed, the only sign of life has been a single video which was only released after Israel “paid a price”.
When the highly publicized “Humanitarian Flotilla for Gaza” attempted to break through to Gaza they refused a simple request made by Mr. Shalit to accept a letter to be delivered to his son. If they were really “Humanitarians” as they claim, Why would they Refuse this “humanitarian” request?
Meanwhile, Hamas and PA areas have Graffiti picturing the suffering boy as an aged man; posted this video showing the suffering of the father trying to free his son–with the end showing a coffin being unloaded in front of Mr. Shalit. Even more insidious is another video clip giving the impression of Gilad’s Execution. They use these emotional ploys for their own evil designs. They are asking for the release of thousands of murderous terrorists to an area where they would be free to kill again. What country would accept such terms?
Regardless of whether one loves or hates Israel, what is being done to Gilad is cruel and inhuman. And yet, money and supplies go into Gaza daily, people all over the world demonize Israel and hold up the flags of Hamas and the PA–the new “cause”.
By turning our backs on this abomination we are no better than the terrorists who are behind this madness–one day we will all have to face The Creator to answer for our omissions as well as commissions.
I have watched this video many times. It reminds me of a passage: Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not…Jeremiah 5:21. Indeed, this is an exact description of the enemies of Israel, and Dr. Kedar exposes the lies in their own language!
Dr. Mordechai Kedar (PhD Bar-Ilan U) Served for 25 years in IDF Military Intelligence specializing in Arab political discourse, Arab mass media, Islamic groups and the Syrian domestic arena. A lecturer in Arabic at Bar-Ilan University, he is also an expert on Israeli Arabs.
We need more people like Dr. Kedar to speak up for the truth, but we also need the blinders to be removed and the wool taken from the ears so all can see and hear!

Palestinians Celebrate SpillingJewish Blood
Do you remember where you were ten years ago on October 12th? That was the day that al-Qaeda bombed the USS Cole in Yemen. Seventeen sailors died in the attack.
But also on the very same day–two Israeli reservists, Vadim Norzich z”l, and Josef Avrahami, z”l, were lynched in the most barbaric fashion when they lost their way in Ramallah, which was the late Yasir Arafat’s headquarters.
I will never forget that day. That was the precise moment–and it preceded 9/11 by eleven months–that I knew, really knew, that the bloody beast was back, that we had entered an era of unending bloodshed. Over and over again, the footage was shown of the murderers who tortured, mutilated, and disemboweled the two Israelis, smiling like madmen, proudly displaying their hands smeared with Jewish blood. And how the Palestinian crowds cheered for them.
I watched them all, dancing in the blood of my people, partying like ghouls. No broadcaster, no well coiffed Talking Head drew back in horror.They showed these scenes but did not condemn them. International human rights activists and intellectuals remained silent, as did the entire United Nations.
Please read the entire article. If you are bold enough view the videos and pictures that are posted at the links below. After ten years things have only become worse. Why? Pray for God to put the answer in your heart. WWII gained momentum because good people were silent. The evil that was born in those years is rising again. The difference is the hatred is no longer confined to central Europe, it has spread worldwide and the devils minions are among us all–everywhere. We must not be silent. We must not forget. Never Again!
We just have to consider it a Miracle from God that the miners are emerging from the bowels of the earth and are able to walk and embrace their family members! They look good! The Live feed provided by the Telegraph brings the whole drama to life. I should note I do not have TV which most of you out there probably have!
