Pro Hamas Rally in Miami Florida USA

Hamas is already in The United States of America. Or at least it would appear so…

This video really speaks for itself. For those of you sitting on the fence on the Israel – Gaza – Hamas debate, here’s a sneak peak at what you can expect if you let Hamas win. Only next time it may be in your very own neighborhood.

Who are these thugs? Anti-Israel, anti-Jewish (anti-Semitic), anti-USA? There they are, in plain view in sunny Southern Florida.

Israel’s Chief of Staff Benny Gantz Visiting Troops in Gaza

This clip was published by the IDF. The Israeli Chief of Staff, Benny Gantz visits troops on the ground in Gaza during Operation Protective Edge.
Being that it’s currently one of the hottest war zones in the world, it speaks volumes of the man’s courage and stature.

If the video had been in black and white, you could almost see General Patton speaking with the troops and boosting their morale in Europe.
I’m sure that this is the stuff legends are made of.

Notice a few subtleties –
1. He’s meeting them in “the shetach”, in the field. This is not just a propaganda film for the home front. He actually went out to the battle front to hear from commanders and soldiers on the ground and get their take on how the operation is proceeding. After listening to them, he reminds them of the stratge
2. When he’s speaking with the troops, he is sitting on his knees. Can you think of any Commander of major army in the world, who would get down on the ground to speak with troops in the field down on his knees? Maybe he gets low so the guys can see him eye to eye. After all, his height is a good 6′ 3″ (or more).
3. As he leaves, he says the Hebrew “L’hitraot” for we’ll meet again. As opposed to “Shalom”, which means Goodbye. When an Israeli says we’ll meet again, it means just that.

Strong, calculating, deliberate commanders make for successful campaigns.

Leaked Copy of Kerry’s Gaza Israel Ceasefire Plan

US Secratary of State John Kerry, spent most of last week shuffling between Israel, Egypt, Turkey, and Qatar, to try to bring about a halt to the military action going on Gaza.
He presented this leaked document (as published in Ha’aretz, Middle East News, and other news sources) as a draft proposal, to the Israeli government for a cease fire.
The Israeli Cabinet rejected it out of hand, unanimously by a vote of 8-0.

The Israelis felt that the plan unprecedentedly upgraded Hamas to an equal level as Israel and other mentioned parties. It also answered many of Hamas’ original demands as put forth by the Qataris and Turkish intermediaries, but failed to mention the securities offered Israel in the original Egyptian proposal.

The Palestinian Authority had also expressed dismay that the original Egyptian plan hadn’t been used as the framework for this new proposal.

Video Proof that IDF is the World’s Most Humane Army

We’ve heard that IDF Israel’s Defense Force, is the most humane army in the world. Since the UN Human Rights Commission (which led to the Goldstone Report), the Israeli Army has made it official policy to film all actions.

The world continues to condemn and assume the worst, but time and time again, Israel brings the video evidence that asserts the facts on the ground.

Three such examples can be seen here. Notice the painstaking efforts made to communicate between headquarters and the commander on the ground, to be certain that they have the intended target.

In this first example, the commander is speaking with a female voice, presumably an IDF soldier working at headquarters, who in turn is having a phone conversation with a representative of the intended target, the Wafa Hospital in Northern Gaza. Israeli soldiers are being fired at from a hospital. They ask for permission to fire back at the Hamas. The commander makes a call back to HQ and in real time it plays out.
It’s actually quite surreal. The IDF soldier is asking over and over, in Arabic, “Are you sure there is no one there”. The Palestinian on the other end confirms that they transferred all the patients and locked the doors. No one can be in that hospital, that is except for Hamas who use it as a shield for fire on the Israeli troops.

Only after the all-clear is given on the phone, does the commander release the fire on the intended target. You will note that the UN Human Rights Commission has called for an inquiry to the alleged acts of genocide occurring in Gaza, that include this attack. The Palestinian’s claim that scores of patients were massacred there. Yet the hospital representative is saying in this video, as clear as day, that all the patients have been moved.

This is How Time Magazine Distorts the News on Gaza – Israel

Their July 27 headline reads as follows: “Israel Acknowledges Mortar Strike at UN School, But Denies Casualties”, which on Twitter, as of this writing, reaped 125 retweets and 40 favorites in the first link, and then three hours later on a duplicated tweet, reaped similar numbers (Interesting, by the way, that only this title, from all the subjects they are reporting on, required a duplicate tweet). Nearly all of the responses in Twitter are pro-Palestinian and decidedly anti-Israel (with a few anti-Jewish).

The article is essentially an AP retread as written by Sam Frizell, a business reporter for Time in New York City. Good to see that Time dedicates New York armchair quarterbacks to report the hard and important issues, instead of hard-nosed investigative correspondents on the ground, who get feedback from the primary sources in the field before filing their stories.

The article consists of five short paragraphs. It states Hamas’ claim that 16 civilians were killed at the school, refugees from earlier fighting, (for which the only source given was a Reuters report filed by NIDAL AL-MUGHRAB in Gaza), followed by a disclaimer by the IDF Spokesman. Th Israeli spokesman, Peter Lerner, acknowledges that there was fighting near the school, but denies that anyone had been killed by Israeli shells.

The final paragraph states, almost as an afterthought, that the UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-Moon strongly condemned the attack Thursday, though he said at the time that “circumstances are still unclear.” As a takeaway, the article concludes with “Ban earlier said that rockets had been found in two separate evacuated UN schools, saying that ‘those responsible are turning schools into potential military targets.'”

So what’s wrong with this report?
It seems like both sides of the story were reported. It’s not what _is_ reported, but what is _not_ reported here that distorts the reality.

1. The IDF released a video showing the school before and during the attack. As of the result of the last UN Human Rights Commission farce, Israel has learned that it must take over and above precautions and film every battle, every altercation, literally every step they take. Often, this places Israeli soldiers in harm’s way, especially the one who is videoing the battle. The video shows noone in the area in the front of the school before the attack, and shows rockets being fired by Hamas FROM the school. Why isn’t that included in this report?

2. In their report, Ban Ki-Moon, the UN Secretary General, was even quoted as saying that Hamas was responsible for turning the schools into military targets by placing rockets and firing from them. So why is the title of the article “Israel Acknowledges Mortar Strike at UN School…”. Wouldn’t this be more appropriate “Palestinian Refugees caught in cross-fire between Hamas and Israel at UN School” or “Hamas Fires Rockets from Gaza School, Israel Retaliates with Lateral Casualties”? Of course, the latter probably wouldn’t yield 400 retweets and favorites on Twitter.

This style of reporting by omission is used by all of the mainstream media on their reporting of the war in Gaza to help support the Hamas narrative. Time, along with NPR, CNN, and many other US mainstream news sources, consistently report on Israel and the Palestinians in this fashion.

You Will Never See This on CNN or BBC – IDF in Gaza

This short video shows what Israeli troops on the ground in Gaza are up against as they engage residential areas in Gaza left behind by Hamas.

Gaza Streets and Homes Rigged with Explosives

This Israeli soldier shows how seven homes are booby-trapped together into one big explosion waiting for the advancing soldiers.
Fortunately, the IDF saw the signs of the trap before entering. This is a typical residential area in saijeyah, Northern Gaza.
In the homes, they found weapons caches, rocket caches, booby-trapped doorways, all inter-connected to a central trigger.

Instead of risking the lives of the ground troops, to try and dismantle the network of bombs, Tzaha”l (IDF) decided to move out the soldiers and blow up the area from the air force support.
When we see the pictures of entire areas being blown away, now we can understand why the response was actually very proportional.
