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.

    JNS.org – Three years ago, kayaking coach Roei Lev found aspiring Olympian Ilya Podpolnyy crying on the steps of the Jordan Valley Sprint Kayak Club overlooking the Kinneret (Sea of Galilee). Podpolnyy, then 17 years old, had just been disqualified from the Israeli kayaking championship. He couldn’t survive the heats. He didn’t make the start line. He was devastated—and he had no one with whom to share his hopes, his dreams, and his disappointment. His divorced parents still live in [...]

    Former NBA Star Tweets Article About Jewish Conspiracy to Control Global Media

    Retired NBA player Keyon Dooling tweeted a link on Wednesday to a wildly antisemitic article that accuses Jews of seizing control of the world’s media and using it to promote their own interests. The article, published by an obscure blog in April 2013, highlights six companies it claims are owned by Jews — such as Time Warner, Inc. and the Walt Disney Company – that allegedly “control 96 percent of the world’s media.”  The post includes allegations of “Jewish control” and says [...]
