Please Pray…

We have seen four Jewish teens and one Arab teen laid to rest. There was no reason for any of these children to die!
Nineteen year old Shelly Dadon~while on her way to a job interview~was strangled by the Arab cab driver who picked her up. Sadly, the idea that it was a nationalistic murder was hushed up. The world and even our own press barely mentioned it~even when the Arab admitted his crime. 
Three boys; Eyal Yifrach~aged nineteen, Gilad Shaar~aged sixteen, and Naftalie Frenkel~aged sixteen were kidnapped while on their way home from school~then shot and dumped in a shallow grave in a field.

The world witnessed the vile “three-finger salute” from the Arabs, and responded that it really was the fault of the victims. Arab members in our own Israeli Knesset claimed the terrorists who did this were justified. Our “peace partners” danced and handed out candy in the streets.

Most recent, the kidnapping and murder of an Arab teen, Mohammed Abu Khdeir has shocked all of Israel. Condolences were sent to the family from politicians to the father of one of the murdered Jewish boys. Israelis as a whole have spoken loudly against this act. That this could be perpetrated by Jews is a shameful sore for the entire country. This is not our way. The security forces worked quickly and made arrests. The government promises the harshest punishment for this heinous crime.

But, this is not good enough. You see, when an Arab is murdered it is an international crisis~when it is Jews that are murdered…not so much. The victims were all teens, all innocent, but look at the complete opposite reactions from each side…

Jews cried, prayed and hugged each other as they laid their children to rest. When young Mohammed was murdered Israelis were outraged and demanded the perpetrators be brought to justice. There was no distinction made that he was or was not a Jew~He was an innocent and that’s what mattered.

The Arabs, on the other hand, after celebrating the deaths of Jewish children, have been on a rioting rampage with no signs of letting up. Once again we are being bombarded with hundreds of rockets and children are faced with spending the summer in bomb shelters. Every day there are riots, roads blocked with burning tires, rocks (which are intended to kill) are thrown, Jews pulled from their vehicles and beaten, Joseph’s Tomb has been firebombed again. Hamas declares they will wipe us off the map and “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction is telling us we should get the body bags ready.

As the IDF prepares for what is inevitable, we can only pray~pray that those in charge can find a way to stop the violence; pray the enemy will decide to try negotiations instead of bombs. 
Failing that, we pray for the safety of the boys and girls in the IDF who will be facing an enemy that screams for their blood. Pray for their safety as they go into battle knowing that they are expected to “hold back” and be “more humane” than those they will be facing. Pray for Messiah to come and stop the killing on all sides~Too Many Have Died.

Hu Yivarech~Prayer for the Soldiers of the Israel Defence Forces
For Those Who Wish to Pray…
Prayer for the IDF
He Who blessed our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob~
May He bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and the cities of our God, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. 
May the Holy One, Blessed is He, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may He send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

May He lead our enemies under our soldiers’ sway and may He grant them salvation and crown them with victory. 
And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: 
For it is the Lord your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

Now let us respond…Amen

Israel’s IDF “IS” The Greatest Army in the World!

Special Needs Troops in the IDF
Israeli’s are proud of their Defence Forces with good reason. Since the creation of the state, the struggling forces have gone from strength to strength, not only in defense, but in community outreach.
The world loves to accuse Israel of all things evil. It boggles the mind that regardless of the situation, we are expected to maintain a perfect record, and a higher standard than the rest of the world.
Even so, our young people strive on a daily basis to maintain that standard and hold their heads high, not only by defending our country, but by reaching out to people who need help.
One such project is “Great in Uniform”. Set up ten years ago, its purpose is to integrate young people with disabilities into the IDF~first as volunteers and then as soldiers in every aspect, from the simple soldier’s ID and uniform to working on military bases in Israel and doing the “Israel Trek” to earn their berets. Their training and work serves as part of their preparation for an independent life and their integration into Israeli society.
This is only one of the many things that Israel does for her people~All of them!

Great in Uniform~God Bless the Israel Defence Forces!

IDF Intercepts the “KLOS-C” Carrying Iranian Weapons

In the early hours of Wednesday, 05 March 2014, the IDF intercepted an Iranian shipment of advanced weaponry intended for terrorist organizations operating in the Gaza Strip. The boarding took place in international waters about 1,000 miles (1,600 kilometers) off the coast of Eilat, Israel, between Sudan and Eritrea in the Red Sea.
When the the KLOS-C with its dangerous cargo was escorted to port in Eilat, Jay and Meridel were onsite. Watch their video below as they give you a first hand report.
Following Jay and Meridel’s report is the official explanation of the route the ship took (taken from the IDF Blog). The final video is actual footage from the IDF as they boarded the vessel and exposed the numerous advanced weapons destined for terror organizations to use against Israel.

The IDF found 40 M-302 rockets, with a range of between 90 to 160 kilometers (capable of reaching any point in Israel, including major population centers Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.), hidden in crates. They also found 180 millimeter mortar rounds, and some 400,000 7.62 millimeter caliber bullets.

The operation was the result of months of planning and intelligence gathering. The IDF works continuously to protect Israel. Time after time, as a result of their efforts, attacks are prevented thus preventing threats to civilians in Israel and abroad. Please Pray for Israel and Those who Defend Her.

Syrian Father~He’s All I Have…

Israeli Dr.’s & Syrian Boy~ Photo by Pyotr Paliter
Again and again we hear that Israel is the worst of the worst. We listen to those who call for our total destruction and we see videos and pictures that claim we are blood-thirsty, violent, abuse women and torture  children.
Oh Really?? Here is something that you will NOT hear about in your local media.
Since the civil war in Syria began, there have been many unspeakable atrocities. Israel’s northern border is right next door to Syria. In fact, Meridel visited the towns on the border in September and you could hear the guns in the background at one point. So where do the working class people, those without money and resources go for help?
Many times, they try to cross into Israel and are met by the IDF, who have setup a medical facility to treat casualties. Some patients even arrive with notes from Syrian doctors describing the injuries. **Remember, these people are raised to hate Israel and think of Jews as the “small satan”. At all times the wounded are treated with respect and great sensitivity. Imagine their surprise when they see and experience the real truth!
Treating A Wounded Syrian Fighter in Israel
One of the many stories is that of the six year old boy in the picture above. He was seriously injured in a blast that had killed his mother and sister and wounded his older brother (who later died). Six weeks after the father pleaded the doctors to “save the boy~he’s all I have left”, it looks like Israeli doctors have been able to do just that!
Arriving near death, in a coma, the child was transferred to Rambam hospital in Haifa. There doctors performed complex surgeries which included removing, then replacing sections of his scull.
Weeks later he received treatment from a speech therapist, a physical therapist, and others, who helped him to regain as much of his previous function as possible. 
Women, children, fighters, there is no discrimination. According to the IDF Blog, the commander, Col. Bader states:
“There has not been a single case in which an injured Syrian was denied medical treatment by the IDF or by a civilian hospital…I’m sure of that.”
Those of us who live here, and see our troops on a daily basis, are also sure of that. The people of Israel’s Defense Forces do their utmost to provide aid wherever and whenever they can~their actions speak louder than any words. 
You could ignore stories like this and opt to go with the more popular “Boycott Israel” crowd, but we hope you will look beneath the surface of their lies and see the truth. Nobody claims Israel is perfect, but with all our problems, and being surrounded by millions who scream for our destruction on a daily basis, we do try to do the very best we can.
 
Please Pray for the young people of the IDF as they man the front lines in these very troubled times.

The IDF Soldier vs The Anarchist (Some Facts)

The Danish Anti-Israel Zealot~Yes, that is exactly what he was~made headlines around the world and started yet another round of Israel bashing. 
He Was There To Provoke A Confrontation! Sure enough, when a clip was posted showing him being struck by an IDF soldier, the main stream media (even in Israel) jumped on the story like a bunch of piranhas. One person however, took the time to investigate…
Do Watch and Listen to what Michael Coren has to say~This is Very Good!
