JNS.orgHamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, speaking Sunday to mark the second anniversary of the deal in which the Gaza-based Palestinian terror organization received more than 1,000 prisoners from Israel in exchange for captive Gilad Shalit, called for a new Palestinian intifada. Haniyeh also praised recent terror attacks on Israel in Judea and Samaria.

“We send our blessings from Gaza to our brothers in the West Bank who carried out the recent attacks against the occupier,” Haniyeh said. “Our heroic brothers in the West Bank must rise up, resume armed resistance against the occupier and embark on a popular uprising on the streets of the West Bank.”

    Op-Ed: Collective Punishment
    Giulio Meotti
    September 24, 2013
    There is a form of collective punishment for terror acts that the writer claims is morally justified.

    An Israeli soldier, a young, wonderful and smiling Jew, was abducted and executed in Qalqilya by despicable Arabs. Monsters wanted to use the body of that Jew to release another monster jailed in Israel.

    During the first Intifada, Arab terrorists from Qalqilya burned Ofra Moses and her small children to death. It was not different from a pogrom.

    And it was nothing new. In the years following the creation of the State of Israel, the town of Qalkilya was one of the worst vipers’ nests of Arab genocidal passions.

    In 2006 another Jew was torched and dismembered in Qalqilya. His name was Daniel Yaakovi, he was a doctor from the nearby “settlement” of Yakir.

    “This is a message of fire — a burning message to the occupation. Killing, burning and fire”, Fatah’s armed wing claimed after the killing. Another Jew had been turned into a burned corpse by Qalqilya’s terrorists.

    Qalqilya is a strategic town 12 miles distant from Tel Aviv and less than five minutes from Kfar Saba. Qalqilya is not like more isolated Nablus (Shechem), it is shoulder to shoulder with the pre-1967 Israeli towns.

    The city has been called the “Paradise Hotel”, because it was used by suicide terrorists as the jumping off point into Israel.

    You don’t become “the terrorists’ hub”, as Qalqilya has been named, without the complicity of the local population and infrastructures. The Palestinian Arabs aren’t
    Israel should also erase the houses of the terrorists, confiscate their properties and deport their families.
    hostages; they chose terrorism freely, they love killing Jews, so must live with the consequences.

    Terror is a collective punishment, Israel’s answer to it must include collective punishment.

    Israel should flatten entire neighborhoods of Qalqilya if its Arab residents destroy innocent Jewish lives as happened last week.

    Israel should also erase the houses of the terrorists, confiscate their properties and deport their families.

    This is what the Allies did during the war, when they didn’t hesitate to impose a collective punishment on the German and Japanese people (Dresden was levelled), while today we like to believe that the State of Israel is facing “individual murderers” and unorganized “fanatics”, and must pardon the Islamic society that nurtures them.

    The Arab population of Judea, Samaria and Gaza living in the communities that spawn repeated terror is responsible for that Muslim terrorism. Collective punishment of that population by Israel – when administered in proportion to the evils it is meant to combat – is justified.

    When terrorism is perpetrated against the Jewish people, it is justified to wage war against the population from which the terrorists emerged, and that sometimes includes harming civilians who did not actively participate in the terrorist acts themselves.

    It doesn’t mean the taking of human lives, but destroying properties and morally subjugating the environment that supports them. This is deterrence.

    Protection of human life from barbaric terrorism comes before political correctness. This is what I would say to Israel’s leaders if I were the father of Tomer Hazan or Daniel Yaakovi.

    Till Palestinian had such leader’s that are demonstrating a clear interest only on war-uprising: Israel should not deal or give any concession. Israel can only increase if possible education and culture level of Palestinian that hopefully will help them to choice better representative.

    • Israel doesn’t decide who writes Palestinian textbooks, tv programs etc… An education towards peace has to come from the Palestinian government, the EU and ONU who Floyd them with money that doesn’t seem to reach the people, are the organizations that should make demands in change of policy towards educating for peace, not death.

    10 New Hollywood Movies That Aim to Show Support for Israel (SATIRE)

    Ten major film studios are currently in production on projects that promote a decidedly pro-Israeli narrative. In famously liberal Hollywood, such a development has left mouths agape and set tongues a wagging. Since the Jewish State began defending itself from the thousands of rockets that Hamas has hurled at it – as well as ongoing terror attacks and murders, the overwhelming number of Tinseltown’s producers, directors, actors, and studio moguls have remained indifferent to the plight of millions of Israeli [...]

    Surviving the Holocaust by Hiding Their Faith (REVIEW)

    “Jews Out!” was just the name of a child’s game that three little girls played in World War II Europe. But all is not as it seems because the three girls were Jewish, but hiding their true identities. In award-winning author R. D. Rosen’s riveting non-fiction work, Such Good Girls, “Jews Out!” wasn’t a game; it was a struggle for survival. The girls, Sophie, Flora, and Carla, grew up at a time and a place that did not allow them [...]

    JNS.org – “He was part hippie, part yippie, part beatnik, and part New Age,” wrote Elli Wohlgelernter in a Jerusalem Post eulogy in 1994, following the Oct. 20 passing of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Twenty years later, more robust accounts of Carlebach’s life have come to the surface. Earlier this year, Natan Ophir published the book Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach: Life, Mission & Legacy.

    Beatlemania Invades the Gaza Strip (SATIRE)

    As Hamas loses its grip on power in the Gaza Strip as a result of war, poverty and disillusionment, the Islamist terrorist group has developed an ingenious way to raise the morale of the 1.7 million Palestinian Arabs it was elected to serve. While currently focused on delivering a rocket into every Israeli home, Hamas has not left its own people behind. To gently wipe away the tears of children strategically placed inside kindergartens as human shields, the Hamas Interior Ministry [...]

    Removing Jesus’ Jewish Identity From Artwork

    In a strong statement that challenges the historic divide between Christianity and Judaism, Pope Francis recently proclaimed, “Inside every Christian is a Jew.” But if you look at Renaissance artworks that depict Jesus, you will not find any evidence of a Jew inside the Christianized Jesus — even though the Gospels in the New Testament tell us that Jesus was Jewish to the core. Getting that point across to the public is a daunting task, as I learned in interviews I [...]
