An official IDF tutorial video instructing soldiers to avoid shooting female terrorists whenever possible is being distributed to the rank and file of the Israeli military, the Hebrew newspaper Makor Rishon reported on Friday.

The purpose of the clip, produced by the Samaria Brigade, is to provide clearer guidelines to those serving in the West Bank, who have been encountering the growing phenomenon of Palestinian girls and women attempting to commit stabbing attacks

According to Makor Rishon, the clip gives a glimpse into the complexity of the situation, and illustrates why some soldiers have been complaining that their instructions are often too vague, and their room to maneuver too broad, which at times has put them at risk.

The clip explains in subtitles — below a montage of TV news broadcasts reporting on various terrorist attacks — that because the threat posed by female perpetrators is smaller than that posed by males (which is borne out by the unambiguous success at neutralizing them) their deaths at the hands of soldiers has been sparking an even greater desire in the Palestinian public for revenge. In view of this fact, the video stresses, thwarting attacks by women through early detection and Krav Maga “is preferable” to shooting them.

The video nevertheless concludes by reiterating that soldiers are permitted to shoot terrorists, as they must never put their own lives at risk unnecessarily.

“No change has been made in the rules of engagement,” the IDF spokesman told Makor Rishon.

These words were put to the test on Thursday, when a male Palestinian about to commit a stabbing attack on soldiers guarding the hitchhike post at the entrance to the community of Ofra was shot to death.

Such incidents have become routine since the beginning of the surge in Palestinian terrorism that began a year ago in September and is commonly referred to as the “stabbing” or the “lone-wolf” intifada.

    Best to impregnate them with non Muslim semin.

    I may sound like a paranoid but since the people in IDF that come up with such instructions are clearly not idiots, the only logical explanation is that we have many people who are ideological Fifth Column within our midst.

    • J Leland Kupferberg

      Yes, this is exactly what is happening. There is indeed an ideological agenda among key quarters in Israel’s military, political, and judiciary establishment to ensure that Israel stands down when faced by certain threats, all the better to ensure that the Israeli public becomes primed to the conclusion that it cannot successfully deter terrorism without considering the two-state solution as the only sustainable and viable status quo.

    As long as you have Arabs-Muslims living in Greater Israel, terror and violence will never stop. It is in their blood and in their culture. Just look around in the world and see how terror and violence is promoted in the Muslim countries and in the Muslim communities in Europe and elsewhere. They are killing each other by the tens of thousands. When is the world at large going to wake up and face the harsh reality? That terror and violence must be eliminated at all costs like a cancer or we are doomed to extinction. Death to all terrorists must be applied, no exception, male female or child. When the Arabs Muslims; are teaching their children from infancy to commit terror and violence. There is no alternative but elimination of the terrorists and those who promote and incite the masses to commit terror and violence. The Arabs have an Arab/Palestinian state in Jordan which is over 80% Arab Palestinians. The territory of Jordan is Jewish territory and the Jews are not permitted to live there. The Arabs also have the over 12 million sq. km. of land received after WWI, the Jewish property, homes and the over 120,000 sq. km. of Jewish owned land; that the Arabs-Muslims confiscated from the over a million Jewish families terrorized and expelled from Arab countries that had lived there for over 2600 years.

    All terrorists must be eliminated, zero tolerance. The leaders in Gaza are all terrorists who must be eliminated and not run for office, that they continue terror and violence and abuse and defraud their own people. They use their people misery as an excuse for terror and blame on others for their failure to use the funds given to them by the world organizations to improve conditions for the people in Gaza.

    It is time for Israel to go in with the Army and start taking over Hebron, the second holiest city for Jews. Every terror attack another section of Hebron will be retaken by Israel the rightful owners. Since the 1920’s Hebron has and is a hotbed of terror. It is time to take some serious actions. Arab terror in Hebron against the Jews started in 1517.
    Israel must take back Gush Katif and all the Jewish communities vacated in 2005 by PM Ariel Sharon.

    So the soldiers must risk their lives to protect the female terrorist

  • walter77777

    That is the way to do it! These mamzerim seem to crave death, and through the use of hand-to-hand techniques through which the perp is arrested rather than killed she is denied the martyrdom she seeks.

  • Peter

    They do not come to deliver flowers and or candies, so they only deserve one thing, SHOOT TO KILL!!!

  • Larry A Singleton

    These people are the scum of the earth.

    People should read the following article:

    “The Met’s Jerusalem Exhibit Pursues Jihad By Other Means” by Maureen Mullarkey. , The Federalist,…/mets-jerusalem-exhibit…/

    “Politics is the last thing that enters the mind of visitors to art museums. As modern pilgrimage sites, museums are venerated as sanctuaries of pure, unspotted Culture. That piety makes art exhibitions a credible vehicle to displace history with ideology. Add a Kuwaiti princess to a prestigious museum’s board of directors, and the subordination of culture to politics is guaranteed.”

    “Jerusalem 1000 to 1400: Every People Under Heaven” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art is a sophisticated exercise in historical revision and cultural proselytizing. Between cherry-picked anecdotes, crucial omissions, and the lyrical come-ons of Conde Nast Traveler, the ravishing catalogue conjures an Islam cleansed of imperialism, brutality, absolutism, and institutionalized inequality of non-Muslims. Here instead is an Islam shimmering with benignity and civilized taste, a light to the nations.”

    I would strongly suggest reading articles by Hugh Fitzgerald. Especially “Islam as a Vehicle for Arab Supremacism” and the book “Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat” by Peter Hammond.

    I wish I could put my “back and forth” with a reader at this Metropolitan Art Museum Facebook page. Suffice it to say that he questioned why I was so “vulgar” in my response when he expressed his regret at not being able to visit the museum due to the fact that he was separated by the Atlantic Ocean. But got the catalogue nonetheless:

    Frans Debonne: Not being able to cross the Atlantic to see this exhibition myself, I am really glad that I bought the catalague. Thanks a lot.

    My response was “you’re not missing anything. And if you believe in fairy tales you’ll believe what’s in that catalogue.”

    “I wonder what kind of an idiot -would- spend good money to travel a far distance and have smoke blown up his ass.”

    I get teed off when I see people who are that colossally stupid when it comes to this issue. They win my mental “How Can They Possibly Be That Stupid?” Award.

    It’s almost as if they’re from a different planet. This catalogue as it’s explained in the article is about as factual as the Lutheran Social Services “My Neighbor is a Muslim” Interfaith booklet explaining the Koran and Islamic history; A total whitewash from beginning to end. I have absolutely no patience with people who are too stupid and too lazy to study the issues and buy into anything that’s fed to them.

    As I explained to him my interest came after reading a couple of books. One of which was The Haj by Leon Uris. Which kick-started my odyssey into the facts about the Israel/Palestinian issues.

    A couple of years later I had a big hand-made “STAND WITH ISRAEL” sign in my front window. And a few years after that I’ve got filing cabinets stuffed with articles, essays and reports and bookshelves that go almost from floor to ceiling on issues related to Israel and Islam. And I feel it’s one of the most important issues of our time.

    Especially when you consider we’re seeing the kind of Jew hatred spread across the United States of America that hasn’t been seen since 1930’s Nazi Germany.

    How do you explain to people like this in the space that Fakebook allows the history of persecution suffered by the Jewish people and the necessity for a Jewish homeland?

    Well, I tried to do it in two parts. Wish me luck.

  • Larry A Singleton

    It would be nice if I could read Hebrew.

  • Isahiah62

    This is a VERY bad idea, any law enforcement trained to deal with deadly opponents understands why. The decision must be made in a moment, no time to wrangle or wrestle.
    To publicize this policy to use restraint is really crazy and will get young IDF killed.

  • Gee

    Stupid instructions – shoot to kill all terrorists no matter what

  • domdavid

    As I understand the article, IDF strategists have concluded that Palestinian rage is stimulated to a greater degree when an Israeli soldier, in self-defense, kills a female as compared to a male attacker. Readers are told that this conclusion is the basis for the IDF guidance that Israeli troops should attempt, when possible, to neutralize female attakers using non-lethal means. Gotta wonder whether there is any evidence to support the conjecture. But, even if there were some factual support for the assumption, it is irresponsible and reckless to put Israeli lives at risk to test the unsubstantiated assumption that the preferential use of non-lethal vs. lethal defensive measure will have an overall beneficial effect. Before one Israeli is maimed or killed in an attempt to subdue a knife-wielding femal assailant, there ought to be compelling evidence not only that the policy causes a substantial ‘reduction’ in Palestinian rage, but that the reduction in rage is accompanied by some real-world gain (e.g., fewer attacks on Israelis). Absent that, the IDF decision to promulate the guidance is both absurd and reckless.

    The IDF need to mutiny and cleanse themselves of the leftist filth in their hierarchy.

    Kill ALL muzslime terrorists, male or female. Shoot first, save yourselves.

  • Stephen E Hughes

    Thousands of people have bought into this fantasy. Reports of real close-quarters attacks reveal that when it comes to facing an armed attacker intent on taking your life, you’re in much more danger from a knife attack than from someone armed with a gun. According to FBI fatality stats from officers killed in a fight, 10% of those who were shot died from their wounds. But 30% of those who were attacked with a knife were killed as a result of being cut and stabbed.
    Knives Don’t Have A Line Of Fire : A gun can only kill you if you’re in the direct line of the path of the bullet. That also explains why , even in ranges as close as 3′-6′, only about 1 in 4 bullets actually hit the target – and these stats are from trained police officers! But knives can do lethal damage from any angle and they don’t miss their target.
    Knives Don’t Run Out Of Ammo :In a close quarters attack, you could be stabbed 3-5 times in a single second.
    And FBI stats also reveal that only 1 in 4 bullets ever hit their mark – even at ranges as close as 3′. Considering that it may take several rounds to finally stop an attacker, you may find your clip empty and still facing an enraged thug with a knife that’s not running out of metal.
    Knives Take No Skill To Use : Since we were young, holding and cutting with a knife has been built into our natural abilities. While it takes lots and lots of training to become an expert with a firearm, any scumbag with a pointy piece of metal can wield a blade like a master with even the crudest of movements.
    Knives Give Little Warning: Not only can knives be concealed and drawn easier than a firearm, but they’re silent killers. When a gun is fired, you know you’re in a gunfight. However, many victims in a knife attack claim they didn’t even know they were being stabbed until it was too late. When under the influence of the adrenaline rush of a real attack, you may in fact not feel yourself being cut and mistake it for simply being punched.
    I worked with Mentally ill offenders for about 8 yrs as Correctional Officer, 13 years US Army, 4 years Military Police and a 3rd degree black belt in Taekwondo, trying to disarm a knife attacker will only get you killed. In addition it only takes a few weeks of training of knife training to become a lethal weapon. Watch these martial arts training video, the person always sees the knife attack coming and not weighed down by heavy military equipment and exhausted from hours & months on guard duty. In a knife fight it is insane to try to fight with fantasy .

  • Ron Lindsey

    Who ever dreamed up this up just instructed the Moslem jihadis to dress as a women in order to get closer to IDF troops! With the burka, and head to toe robes a lot of explosives or weapons can be hidden! Issue a shot gun to one or the two IDF solders at each post, and aim low !

  • Kwitcherbellyakin

    In hand to hand fighting, one might be expected to overpower a smaller person, but you may still be risking your own life. If you come at me with a knife, man, woman, or child, I will do my best to permanently end their plans for martyrdom.
    If you have the time and skill to correctly assess the situation, fine, but if you err, you may die.
