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.

    Jewish Men Pass Jimmy Kimmel Social Experiment, Rescuing ‘Spongebob’ in Distress (VIDEO)

    Two Jewish men were the only unwitting participants in a social experiment conducted by Jimmy Kimmel, for his popular TV show. As part of a candid-camera-like sketch featured Monday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host devised different street scenes to observe human behavior — in particular, to see how long it would take people walking down California’s bustling Hollywood Boulevard to notice and interact with others in distress. One scene involved a man in a Spongebob Squarepants costume who had “fallen down” on the sidewalk and needed help […]

The Israeli-born movie star told the U.K.’s Independent that the Jewish community needs to examine how much focus it puts on Holocaust education over other issues. She said she was shocked when she learned that a genocide was taking place in Rwanda while she was in school learning only about the horrors of the […]

    Famed actress Natalie Portman warned on Friday against the use of Holocaust education to evoke fear and paranoia. In an interview with the U.K. Independent she added that the trauma should make Jews more empathetic to others who have also experienced hatred. “Sometimes it can be subverted to fearmongering and like ‘Another Holocaust is going to happen,’” the Israeli-American star said. “We need to, of course, be aware that hatred exists, antisemitism exists against all sorts of people, not in the same way.

    A Righteous Gentile Navigates the Sharkpool of Washington’s Middle East Correspondents (REVIEW)

    The Tribalist, by Louis Marano, is ostensibly a work of fiction but at its core a kind of love song by a gentile journalist for the State of Israel, and especially its secular Zionist core. (Because of the relentless attacks by left-wing polemicists on Israel’s allegedly “messianic” fringe, it’s often forgotten that most of Israel’s founders and all its leaders have been secular Zionists.) The author, the product of an Italian-American family in Buffalo, served two tours of duty in […]
