Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor played an air raid siren from a cell phone during a Security Council session on Thursday in order to highlight Israel’s plight as a nation under fire from Gaza rockets.

“As I speak, there is a storm of rockets being fired by the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza,” Prosor said. “Hamas is intentionally and indiscriminately threatening the lives of three and a half million innocent men, women, and children in Israel from north to south – from Beersheba to Tel Aviv to Haifa.”

The Ambassador added, “In the last three days, 442 rockets have been fired into Israel – that’s one every 10 minutes.”

“Fifteen seconds. That’s how much time you have to run for your life,” he said after sounding the alarm. “Imagine having only 15 seconds to find a bomb shelter. Now imagine doing it with small children or elderly parents or an ailing friend.”

Palestinian United Nations envoy Riyad Mansour responded saying he had no props for his appeal to the council “to stop the bleeding” and revive the Palestinians’ “dying hopes” for an end to the conflict and peace with freedom, the Associated Press reported.

Israel’s ongoing Operation Protective Edge was launched early Tuesday morning in response to an escalation in Gaza rocket attacks.

    I prefer to hope that these “human animals” will quickly be enabled to fulfill their cherished hope of romping with 70 virgins……

  • Hopefully, when the Canadian Communists and other Fascists who smypathize with terrorism go to Hell, devils will play sirens in their ears, for eternity. (And shove explosives up their butts.)

    It was good that Ambassador Prosor played the recording for the Security Council to hear. I am writing from my apartment in downtown Jerusalem and can verify what you all heard five thousand miles from here. I heard iron Wednesday and Thursday through my balcony door. The feeling that the Red Code siren brings tone is of utter helplessness. How do you protect yourself from the unknown? My resolve to stay in Jerusalem, the undivided capital of the Jewish State of Israel is even more resolved and steadfast in consequence to having to be prepared to meet with such an eerie death just because I am a Jew living in my own land! Israel is protecting itself from Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and ISIS, a cowardly inimical force that wreaks terror via launching lethal missiles and projectiles willy-nilly on millions of innocent, defenseless Israeli civilians–men, women, and children.

  • Israel has finally pulled its act together and is using the UNSC the way it should be done, just like the US did during the Cuban Missile Crisis in 1962.

    But Obama is now offering to broker a ceasefire with Hamas!? What ceasefire? It has become crystal clear that no country would permit that its whole population is under rocket attack and remain under threat in the future from of a terror organization whose Charter, Article 13 reads “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad.”

    There is an additional reason why Israel must destroy Hamas NOW and that is Iran.
    As Matthew Kroenig so brilliantly proved in his new book A Time to Attack: The Looming Iranian Nuclear Threat, the United States MUST attack the Iranian nuclear facilities if diplomacy fails. But Obama is quite reluctant to do even that which is imperative for the US. So it leaves Israel. The retaliatory strike that will follow an Israeli preemptive strike on Isfahan, Arak, Natanz and Qom will come from Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel has to get rid of the Hamas component in the Iranian retaliation. Israel has to neutralize Hamas NOW so that its part of the Iranian retaliation will not exist when the time comes to attack the Iranian nuclear facilities.

    Young Syrian Jewish Restauranteur Continues a Family Legacy

    JNS.org – At the turn of the century, a young Jewish immigrant arrived in New York. So begins the history of many American Jewish families. It is 27-year-old Albert Allaham’s story, too, with a few unusual twists. Albert’s “century” is the 21st—he arrived almost 100 years after the massive waves of European Jewish immigration. Rather than coming from a small town along the Danube river, his shtetl was Damascus. His first American business was not a pushcart on the Lower East [...]

In his new book, REBBE, best-selling author Joseph Telushkin reveals many surprising and sometimes shocking details as he chronicles the life and teachings of the charismatic Rabbi [...]

    New Jerusalem Eatery’s Uniform Pricing Seeks to ‘Help People Make It’

    JNS.org – Omelet sandwich: 5 shekels. Iced coffee: 5 shekels. Tuna sandwich: 5 shekels. Fresh-squeezed orange juice: 5 shekels. Cheese bureka: 5 shekels. There’s plenty more on the Cofizz menu, but you get the idea. Dani Mizrahi and Amir Amshalm, two Israeli men in their early 30s, asked themselves: Why not launch a take-out food joint in busy neighborhoods around Jerusalem where everything—and that means everything—goes for five shekels, or about $1.50. They’d seen the concept take off in Tel Aviv, where [...]
