Family Security Matters
The willful blindness of the Western media and intellectual elites to Palestinian incitement and their hyper-focus on any incident they can use to portray Israel in a negative light were on abundant display last week when footage emerged of an Israel Defense Forces soldier shooting a wounded and disarmed Palestinian terrorist.
Since then, The New York Times and The Washington Post have run no fewer than 16 stories about the incident. This volume of coverage reinforces the patently mendacious Israel-is-evil “narrative” promoted by the mainstream media, the liberal elites in bed with Palestinian and jihadist killers, the demonstrably one-sided United Nations, and the sanctimonious rants of several congressional leaders who claim they are speaking out in the name of human rights.
Meanwhile, these same news outlets consistently fail to speak out against the massive and ongoing denial of human rights, suppression of basic freedoms and daily torture meted out to any Palestinian dissident by both the Palestinian Authority and Hamas. Many of these violations have been investigated and documented in horrific detail by the courageous Palestinian human rights advocate Bassam Eid.

The 2013 Miss Israel is heading back to the front lines.
Yityish “Titi” Aynaw, the Ethiopian-Israeli beauty that won Miss Israel in 2013, is back in her olive drab uniform. StandWithUs, a pro-Israel advocacy and education organization, posted a photo of Aynaw in her uniform holding her service weapon.
Hizbullah has canceled leaves and is preparing for war, according to the Kuwaiti newspaper As-Seyassah.
“Hizbullah cancelled the vacations of all its militants, summoned thousands of its members and gave orders to its prominent officials to remain unseen in case a war broke out,” the daily said.
It added that the terrorist army and political party put its combat units, including missile units, on extreme alert. The newspaper also reported that the IDF is aware of Hizbullah’s preparations and has increased reconnaissance flights over southern Lebanon.
A rocket fired by Palestinians from Gaza Wednesday night landed between Ashdod and Gedera, in the first such attack after a two-month period of quiet. Sirens sounded in Ashdod and nearby communities and residents were told to enter protected rooms and shelters. There were no injuries.
Since the terrorist attack on the Egyptian border near Eilat that killed eight on August 18, the Gaza border has been relatively calm with only a few rocket launches, most directed at small communities near the Gaza Strip. Last night’s rocket, fired around 11:10 p.m., landed in a field. It seems to have been fired from the northern end of the Gaza Strip, from a distance of about 30-35 kilometers . The explosion was heard clearly all over Ashdod, which means it had a relatively large warhead.
It is astounding how the liberal mainstream media continue to ignore the videos, the statements, the financial connections and the weapons in last week’s flotilla raid on the Israeli blockade of Gaza.
More evidence keeps coming. You won’t see this in major newspapers, television networks or websites. I will continue to scour the foreign sources and Israeli media for the truth. Here is what has happened over the weekend:
You have already seen the videos below this post which show the brutality of the attacks on the IDF soldiers, and the vast assortment of weapons, and the attempts which were made to avoid a violent confrontation.
What you haven’t heard from the “mainstream” media is that there were armed jihadis aboard the flotilla who were making their “final” videotapes as they steamed toward what they knew would be a bloody and fatal confrontation with the Israeli Defense Force.
Turkish newspaper Hurriyet has shocking new photos of the IDF soldiers being bloodied and brutalized by the terrorists on board the ship. The photos were captured from the passengers’ cell phone cards. They are hard to look at.
The self-described “peaceful” Muslim imam who is attempting to build a mosque on the site of 9/11 ground zero in New York City was a sponsorof the “Free Gaza” terrorism flotilla.
The “martyrdom” statements were confiscated by IDF when they took control of the mother ship.
