In the August 2005 Gaza disengagement, nearly 10,000 Jews were forced to vacate their Gaza homes. However, in the years since that major political move by the Israeli government, Palestinian terror organizations have launched more than 9,000 rockets at nearby Israeli cities.

“Seven years ago today we disengaged from the Gaza Strip,” an IDF Spokesperson said on Sept. 13 in a Facebook post, according toIsrael National News. The post included a poster depicting two Gaza terrorists planning to launch a missile at Israel.

“Share to show the world Israel’s true neighbors. Share this, because mainstream media won’t,” he also posted.

  • OK, so how many bombs, rockets, shells etc has Israel launched with its jets, helicopter gunships, tanks, drones and navy gunboats since 2005?

    And of course Israel did not “disengage” from Gaza – it still occupies Gaza’s airspace, coastal waters and airwaves and controls Gaza’s borders (except now the Rafah crossing into Egypt).

    • You must be a Jew.

    • You better ask that question to the government ruling Gaza . As far as I know ,Israeli launch of those bombs,rockets etc is only a replay to Hamas for their rockets. Why don’t you suggest to Hamas to try and stop those attack’s in the first place for a while and see what Israel would do?

    • After Isrelai withdrew from Gaza everything was open . There was no blockade. PLo was in control . Why did the palestinain started shooting rockets days after we left Gaza?
      What was their exuse than?

    • You better ask that question to the government ruling Gaza. Israel launch of those bombs,rockets etc is only a replay to Hamas for their rockets…

  • President Bush and Condoleezza Rise mistake handing over Gaza to the palestinians as part of President Bush’s ‘Road to Peace’. Palestinians elected Hamas to run the government in Gaza, and they turned into a staging area to fire mortars, and missles into Israel. Islamists have yet to prove it can be trusted, and keep to their word. Israeli Prime Minister is the only adult in the entire region. Israel is surrounded by hatred. Takfiri in the Sinai, Hamas in Gaza, Hezbollah in Lebanon, Flip-flopper Erdogan in Turkey, Lunitics Ahmadinejad and Khameneni in Iran, sectarian war in Syria, Muslim brotherhood in Egypt, and Al Qaeda everywhere. No other country has ever been faced with such a dangerous position. Yet the world, only see the plight of the Palestinians. I Stand With Israel, because with all the land that Islam controls they still want to take pices away, or destroy Israel. The Arabs who have much don’t help those who don’t, any they kill one another over the differences of how their holy men are chosen. None of us are perfect, but trust and respect are the only measures that prove a person’s character. Unfortunatly, there’s too little of it around today.

  • For me, the Jewish people is the people chosen by G-d. To be a blessing for all of us. I am not a Jew, but I believe that, and I think everyone has a responsibility and everyone has to choose. My prayers are for Israel, Jerusalem and all the Jewish people! And I know for sure, that G-d will never let down his people, because He has given His promise.

    Love and greetings from “Daniel”

    When Torah Teaches Life and Life Teaches Torah (REVIEW)

    JNS.org – Rabbi Gordon Tucker spent the first 20 years of his career teaching at the Conservative movement’s Jewish Theological Seminary (JTS) and the next 20 years as the rabbi of Temple Israel Center in White Plains, N.Y. I confess that when I heard about the order of those events, I thought that Tucker’s move from academia to the pulpit was strange. Firstly, I could not imagine anyone filling the place of my friend, Arnold Turetsky, who was such a talented [...]

    Oscars 2015: Reflecting on Love at First Sight

    JNS.org – I’m in love, and have been for a long time. It’s a relationship filled with laughter, tears, intrigue, and surprise. It was love at first sight, back when I was a little girl—with an extra-terrestrial that longed to go home. From then on, that love has never wavered, and isn’t reserved for one, but for oh so many—Ferris Bueller, Annie Hall, Tootsie, Harry and Sally, Marty McFly, Atticus Finch, Danny Zuko, Yentl, that little dog Toto, Mrs. Doubtfire, [...]

    Examining America’s First Foray into the Middle East (REVIEW)

    At the turn of the 21st century through today, American involvement in Middle Eastern politics runs through the Central Intelligence Agency.

Wilford methodically traces the lives and work of the agency’s three most prominent officers in the Middle East: Kermit “Kim” Roosevelt was the grandson of president Theodore Roosevelt, and the first head of [...]

    Anyone who spent time in the Jewish Catskills hotels – especially those like me, who returned for decades – must see the new documentary,”Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.” Not only will the film transport you back to the glory days of your youth and thousands of memories, but it will also make you long for a world that is now lost forever. I returned to Kutsher’s one last time in the summer of 2009, but by then, the [...]

    Riding the Wave of Change in Part-Time Jewish Education

    JNS.org – Amid the numerous studies and analyses regarding Jewish American life, a simple fact remains: part-time Jewish education is the most popular vehicle for Jewish education in North America. Whenever and wherever parents choose Jewish education for their children, we have a communal responsibility to devote the necessary time and resources to deliver dynamic, effective learning experiences. The only way we can do this is by creating space for conversations and knowledge-sharing around innovative new education models. That also [...]

Eid’s latest campaign is for the overhaul of UNRWA, the UN refugee agency dedicated solely to the Palestinians, which he says [...]
