Using resources from across Israel, The Algemeiner regularly publishes details of attacks on Israeli civilians and military personnel, which occur on a daily basis, but are unreported in the United States and abroad. This report was compiled with the assistance of Yehudit Tayar, who sits on the Board of Directors for Hatzalah Yehudah and Shomron, a voluntary emergency medical organization with over 500 volunteer doctors, paramedics, and medics who are on call 24/7 to assist Arabs and Israelis in need of urgent medical care.

  • I cant get over the ati semite attitudes developing due to wrong media coverage and those who are so easily influenced by untruths

  • well, I was sitting at a residence in Ashkelon in January when I heard what had to be a rocket hit and rattle the windows… yes, it happens all the time said my hosts… two more came a couple of minutes later… I ran outside expecting our guys to respond immediately… nobody was concerned? My attitude is that we need to move these terrorists out of rocket range or ELIMINATE them. Clean out a 10km strip and retake the Philadelphi corridor. No more terrorists or infiltrators period… you shoot you die…

    Our President, Barak Obama, is not particularly a dear friend of Israel, however, he will not toss Israel under the bus. Israel is smart enough to know they must be ready to stand alone in the world and will not rely on the U.S. or any other country. They are very astute and intelligent for such a tiny country, and their backs are against the sea. I have a world of faith in them to take car of themselves. I have visited Israel three times and am totally in awe of the
    country! Plan to make another trip in a few years when I am old and decrepit! 😉

    Prayers from Florida, USA. Please pray for all of us who are wotking so hard to get this president out of office and restore a strong relationship with you. God is moving in our country and I am expecting miracles in this very corrupt election from the Democrats. God Bless Israel and God Bless the USA.
