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.

    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 [...]

    Twenty Years On, the Real and Radical Legacy of Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach

    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. This past summer, Rabbi Shlomo Katz’s The Soul of Jerusalem hit the shelves. But even the authors will admit [...]

    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 moral 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 has [...]

    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 [...]

    JNS.org – Having started his career playing on his family’s pots and pans, Jewish musician Billy Jonas has maintained this homemade performance ethic while spreading his messages of simple living and environmentalism to a shared home throughout the world. After beginning in the kitchen, Jonas soon moved to the music room, where he picked up the piano, guitar, and trombone. These days, the multi-talented multi-instrumentalist plays on with pretty much anything he can find, including cans, bottles buckets, and other recycled-object [...]

    JNS.org – Sara Davidson’s The December Project is a new book that should be read by all senior citizens, and by those who hope to live a long life, for it raises a question that most of us have not been taught how to answer: What should we do in that final stage of our lives?

    Why the Holocaust Occurred in Germany, and Why So Few Resisted (REVIEW)

    It’s hard to make a new contribution to the field of Holocaust studies,  but German historian Götz Aly accomplishes just that in Why the Germans, Why the Jews? His premise is that the origins of the Holocaust were rooted in the specific anti-Semitism found in Germany in the decades and centuries before World War II. Aly (who is not Jewish) seeks to prove his theory by studying only pre-Holocaust history, and tracing how the German people’s envy and hatred of [...]

    Looking at Anti-Israel Celebrities and Their Brands

    JNS.org – During the current conflict in Gaza a number of celebrities have voiced their opinions in support of either the Israeli or Palestinian positions. But others—be it during Operation Protective Edge or at other times—have gone further than simply supporting the Palestinians by actively supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, making false accusations about the Jewish state, ignoring Israel’s position on the conflict, or justifying the actions of the terrorist group Hamas. Many of these [...]
