More and more we receive letters that are “returned to sender” with less than friendly remarks. Here are just two examples. In both cases the box checked says “Addressee has gone away”. It is possible the “messages” came from someone at the Royal Mail. In the second letter one can clearly see that the red sticker was put on top of the hand written Return to Sender, then below in a different ink is written a very ugly message. My apologies for the language, but this is what we received.
Dubai police accused Israel of using fake passports in the death of Hamas murderer and weapons smuggler, Mahmoud al-Mabhouh. To date there has never been proof that Israel was involved. Both Hamas and Dubai police have said that Mabhouh had enemies across the Middle East, any of whom would have had a motive for his murder. It has even been said that the PA was involved. But it is much easier to accuse Israel. In reality, anyone who thinks that the Secret Services of any country in this world do not use fake passports is living in fairyland.
Do those who write hateful messages know that this week Israel marked the third Yartzeit of 8 young boys murdered in cold blood while studying Torah? They were aged 15 to 18 and one aged 26. The gunman fired between 500 to 600 rounds into them before he was finally stopped. I wonder if the message writer knows what it is like when a car is ambushed and four people are shot to death at close range (just to be sure they are dead)--one of them a 9-months pregnant woman?
Yes, Israel did go into Gaza–after tens of thousands of bombs were fired on its civilians. Yes, a lot of Gazans died, but in the end, even Hamas admitted that the majority were fighters. Civilians died but they were not targeted. In fact, Israel dropped leaflets and called the homes before they attacked (do you know any other army that does this?). Hamas uses civilians as shields.
The clip below highlights the narrow-mindedness of those who hate–just because it is the “in thing” to hate Israel. Hopefully good people will not partake in this hate-fest.

Danon said that he “recommends to Yariv Oppenheimer [Peace Now Director] and the other directors of the NGOs that are a fifth column within Israel to start sprucing up their CVs, because soon they will be unemployed…it is time to find the sources of the monies for these groups that act without letup against the state of Israel.” He added: “We will try to find out who are the ones who arrange the riots at the Bil’in checkpoint, who funded the legal motions in the matter of Highway 443. We will reveal the bodies that roam the Galilee and purchase private lands with Saudi money. The leftists seem afraid and they must have a reason for fearing this committee.”
Hooray–It is about time!

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.
