Those pesky checkpoints that check for bombs, knives and what-not carried by palestinians crossing into Jewish population centers in Israel …
Israel keeps removing them, under U.S. and European pressure, of course…confidence-building measures to reassure the palestinian enemies of Israel that they have true partners in their quest for peace…
The removal of checkpoints seems to inevitably lead to a successful terror attacks and the spilling of innocent Jewish blood
…and the IDF checkpoints keep on preventing the murder of Israeli Jews on a daily basis…
Palestinian shot trying to stab Israel soldier
A Palestinian was shot and injured on Sunday after he apparently tried to stab a soldier at a checkpoint in the northern West Bank, the Israeli military said
Reprinted from vancouversun.com
“Today, a Palestinian rushed in the direction of an Israeli soldier shouting Allahu Akhbar (God is greatest) and trying to stab him. The soldier opened fire and wounded him in the leg,” a spokeswoman told AFP.
“The Palestinian was evacuated to an Israeli hospital and an investigation has been opened,” she added.
The military said the incident occurred near the Ariel settlement in the northern West Bank, south of the Palestinian city of Nablus.
Palestinian security sources confirmed that their Israeli counterparts had notified them of an incident in the northern West Bank in which they said a man tried to stab a female soldier,
But the sources added that they had no details or independent confirmation.
In January, Israeli troops shot and killed a Palestinian man at the Hamra checkpoint northeast of Nablus.
Initial reports claimed the man had tried to stab soldiers but the military later said troops had opened fire when the man entered an unauthorised lane at the checkpoint, apparently wielding a bottle.

The Israeli Army is world-reknowned as one of the mightiest armies in the world. Just who ARE these soldiers that make up this elite Jewish fighting force? They are mostly dear young people….the sons and daughters, fathers and brothers of the Israeli people.

A classic post and podcast from the archives!!!
CLICK HERE To Listen to “The Marty Roberts Show”
Marty shares his ideas on the “Israel’s War: The Jewish Response to Terror”(Originally recorded Jan. 2004, but just as relevant today!!)
Jews Building the Land of Israel
Some things don’t seem to change. Israel’s war against Palestinian terror continues, day in, day out. The Israeli Army continues fighting against them, albeit, sometimes, seemingly with one hand tied behind their back. How is it that one of the strongest armies in the world cannot defeat Palestinian Islamic terrorists?
The reason is that the Israeli Army is the most moral army in the world!!!, being the army of the Jewish State of Israel. Israels war is not a regular war, not a conventional war.
Time and again, Jewish blood is spilled fighting the enemy, while going above and beyond what should be expected in a brutal, bloody war. The Israeli Army makes every effort to spare the lives of innocent Arab citizens, far too often at the expense of her own soldiers’ lives and limbs. Israel’s war is a brutal war.
This is the case, even as the cold-blooded terrorists use these same innocent woman and children as “human shields”. They hide behind old women and children. They use teenage girls with school backpacks on their shoulders as decoys and “test targets” for Israeli soldiers. They use grey-bearded old men and young children to transport their weapons and explosives, often in ambulances. They launch missiles from populated areas. They prepare bombs in elderly peoples homes and hospitals. They shoot from churches, schools and from Mosques. Israel’s war is a savage war.
At the same time that the Israeli Army is holding itself back from utterly destroying the enemy, the enemy Arab terrorists are ruthlessly shooting at women and children who are just driving to school in their cars. They blow up buses and restaurants, filled with Jews (and, often, Israeli Arabs, as well) guilty of nothing more than going about their daily business…trying to lead a normal life. They maim and kill fathers driving to and from work, trying to support their families.
A sniper sets his sights on a 2-year old girl in a stroller. Another coldly approaches a car and executes a Jewish mother and all of her daughters, one after the other, with bullets to the head from close range. An Arab worker slits the throat of his Jewish employer of many years (and then his brethren complain that they cannot come to work in Israel!!!) A Jewish mother has HER throat slit as her adolescent daughter looks on in horror. This is Israel’s war.
We must continue to fight this evil…this evil that wants to see the destruction and total elimination of the State of Israel and the Jewish People. We certainly must NOT give them what they want….
That is, we must NOT flee, we must NOT abandon our land and its thriving communities.
Indeed, it’s exactly the OPPOSITE of abandoning and running that is required….
The OPPOSITE of up-rooting thriving Jewish communities and forcing the Jewish residents out of their homes….
We must BUILD, and we must GROW and we must FLOURISH in our eternal Homeland, Israel.
Hebron-The Cave of the Patriarchs
The Jewish answer to those that seek to destroy us is to build community after community….to bring more and more Jews to settle in the land of Israel….to build and to be fruitful and to multiply….to produce more and more beautiful, precious Jewish children….more children to learn and study in Jewish schools in Israel….more Jews living in Israeli communities to pray in Jewish synagogues in Israel….more Jewish families to celebrate their weddings and Bar-Mitzvahs at the Jewish Holy Places….Hebron, The City of Our Forefathers….Jerusalem, the holiest city on earth and the Jewish capitol for more than 3000 years….Beit El, Shechem, Tiberius, all of the ancient Jewish towns and cities described in the Holy Bible
Grow in Israel….
Bring the Jews home to flourish in Israel….
THIS is Israel’s war….
THIS is the JEWISH answer to the terror war against us!!!!

The Israel-haters have gotten SO desperate in their hatred that they are claiming that hours and hours of video footage proving that the “Love Boats” were really ships of death…nothing humanitarian at all about them…that the videos are not authentic…pathetic.
Here’s another revealing video. This video footage is from the security cameras on the Mavi Marmara ship itself, NOT from the Israeli Army.
The Mavi Marmara’s security camera recorded a video displaying the “peace
activists” getting prepared to welcome IDF soldiers.
While the soldiers of the Shayetet Naval Special Forces are approaching the
Mavi Marmara ship, the “peace activists” are getting prepared to welcome
them. In this special video recorded by the ship’s security camera, we can
see the way they equip themselves: clubs, pipes, glass and metal bottles.
This was recorded a few minutes before they started attacking the IDF
soldiers in a violent and uncontrolled way.

My Son Joined His Comrades-In-Arms to Declare Their Allegiance to the Jewish State of Israel and the Israeli ArmyWritten by Marty Roberts on April 16, 2010 – 12:56 pm -
Yesterday, my family and I proudly attended the ceremony of my next-to-youngest son declaring allegiance to the Israeli Army and vowing to defending the State of Israel…a ceremony we have had the joy of attending time and time again, as each of my children entered their mandatory Army service in our new Homeland. (Five down, one to go…)
After some military pomp and circumstance, each new soldier declares his oath of allegiance to his or her country and vows to defend our Land to the end. They are then each given two things by their commander…a rifle…and a Tanach, a Jewish Bible, containing the “Old” Testament and the writing of the Prophets, the Psalms and other Holy Jewish Scriptures…
Where else in the world?

The Hamas terrorist palestinians are feeling their oats in light of recent developments out of Washington. They are jumping on the opportunity presented by Obama-Clinton and Co.’s outrageous attacks on Israel…and Israel is paying the price of their increasingly brazen attacks in blood…
Last night’s deaths raise the toll to three young Israeli soldiers killed in the past week. The coming re-clash in Gaza seems to be inevitable, in spite of Goldstone and the rest of the world’s attempts to usurp Israel’s right to self defense. But we must not be stopped. The evil growing and prospering on all sides of Israel must be wiped out once and for all. The safety of the innocent citizens of Israel must be guaranteed…not by US promises, but by the IDF, Israel’s proud army.
The UN secretary general Ban Ki-moon has good reason to be concerned, and he’d best not try to interfere with Israel’s right to peaceful borders.
And how tragic is it that, instead of Israel’s defense minister Barak worrying more about wiping out the evil threatening Israel, he’s busy worrying about satisfying the American president by using Israel’s army to destroy Jewish homes…the so-called “illegal outposts”, which are neither illegal nor outposts…Shame on you, Ehud Barak…destroy Israel’s enemies, NOT her citizens’ homes…
UN chief ‘concerned’ about Gaza violence
Ban Ki-moon laments incident in which two IDF soldiers were killed, calls for ‘maximum restraint’
Reprinted from Reuters
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Saturday he was concerned about a clash in the Gaza Strip in which two Israeli soldiers were killed.
“I am very concerned at the escalation of violence and loss of life yesterday in the vicinity of the Gaza border,” Ban told a news conference on the sidelines of an Arab League summit in the Libyan town of Sirte.
“I reiterate my appeals made during my recent visit for maximum restraint and an end to all violence, in particular at this critical time when we are engaged in efforts to revive peace talks.”
Ban was referring to Friday’s incident, in which 32-year-old Major Eliraz Peretz and 21-year-old Staff Sergeant Ilan Sviatkovsky were killed in an exchange of fire with terrorists on the Gaza border. Two Palestinians were killed while trying to plant an explosive device near the border fence.
Two hours later, two more Palestinians were killed in another incident in the area. They were spotted by an IDF force trying to plant an explosive device near the border fence and shot.
The commander of this force was the officer involved in an incident of friendly fire that occurred in Gaza earlier this week, in which a soldier was killed. He led his soldiers into a gun battle in which they were mistaken for terrorists and opened fire upon by Golani soldiers.
On Saturday morning the violence continued when a Qassam was fired towards Shaar HaNegev Regional Council. Meanwhile IDF bulldozers are accompanying IDF tanks in scanning the area on the Palestinian side of the border fence in order to locate other explosive devices. Bushes have been removed in order to improve intelligence.
Mother of fallen soldier: God loves Golani
Miriam Peretz, mother of major killed in gunfight in Gaza, says her son died so Israelis can ‘walk proud’, meanwhile Ynet learns demolition orders have been issued on his home, located in West Bank outpost
Reprinted from Ynetnews.com
The mother of 32-year-old Major Eliraz Peretz, who was killed in a gunfight with Palestinian terrorists in Gaza Friday, gave an interview Saturday in which she called her son “the salt of the earth”.
Twelve years ago Miriam lost another son, Uriel, in Lebanon. Her four sons served in the Golani Brigade.
“I know God loves the Peretz family’s Golani, loves these warriors, loves Eliraz who I will say simply was a hero,” she told her family and guests at the Peretz household.
“My sons are always at the front because officers go in front. He provided a personal example and he was alerted to give aid, so of course he was the first to do so. He didn’t go to die, but went so that I and the people of Israel could live well. My sons died for us all, so that we can walk proud.”
Miriam Peretz added, “In Morocco I went around with my head bowed and I had no freedom. Here in Israel I see my boys in uniform and I’m proud to be Jewish. Eliraz had a gentle soul and a pure soul. He was righteous and pure and a mother could be proud to have such a son.”
The mother read a letter from her son thanking her and his father for signing a form allowing him to serve in combat.
“There are no mothers, on our side or the other side, who want their children dead. I don’t want my children to die. I don’t imagine scenarios of death but rather of life. I teach my children to live in this country heroically.”
Demolition orders issued on Peretz home
Meanwhile Ynet learned Saturday evening that demolition orders have been issued for Peretz’s home in the West Bank outpost of Givat Hayovel, near the settlement of Eli, where his wife and four children reside. The home is an illegal structure.
One of Peretz’s neighbors was Major Roi Klein, who was killed during the Second Lebanon War by jumping on a hand grenade to save his fellow soldiers.
Some of the residents of Eli and Givat Hayovel told Ynet that Peretz took Klein’s family in after his death, inviting them to dinner and teaching the children the Torah.

The NYPD has switched the locations for Tuesday night WE ARE GOING TO BE on
PARK at W. 50th – 51st, and the Haters will be at W. 48th – 49th.
On Tuesday, March 9, The Friends of the IDF is having their annual dinner at
the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in NYC. We have learned that there will be an Arab
demonstration outside the hotel, defaming the IDF and Gabi Ashkenazi, the
Chief of the IDF General Staff.
We will be handing out information, holding signs, Israeli and American
flags, and alerting the public as to the true nature of Fatah, Hamas and the
PA. The Hamas terrorist acts against Christians and Fatah, the use of women
and children as human shields, the firing of rockets from mosques, homes,
and schools in order to deter IDF retaliation, the misinformation and hatred
being fed to Arab children in their classrooms and through PA media, will
all be detailed.
We’ll be highlighting the IDF and Israeli assistance to the Arabs in the
fields of medical care, education, and providing a standard of living for
Arab Israelis that is the highest in the Middle East. In addition, in
opposition to the recent “apartheid” claims against Israel, the Israeli
Arabs enjoy full democratic rights in the Knesset , in their religious
observances, and in the media.

counter-protest on that evening. They include Americans For a Safe
