Hamas Terrorist Tactics in the Gaza Strip

Here are two videos that will clearly show how the democratically elected Hamas government has used civilians in Gaza as human shields.
If there is someone to blame for innocent Arab civilians hurt or killed in the Gaza strip, the responsibility is solely on Hamas terrorists.


Help Protect Israel!


I am fighting against endless anti Israel propaganda and misinformation and have been doing so for years. 

The IsraelShield name, profile and constant defense of Israel is a private project I developed to spread the truth about Israel. 

I am currently working on a new site along with an online mall where you will be able to purchase Israel made goods as well as IDF paraphernalia and religious artifacts from Israel.

I need your help and support to keep up the fight! 
Please take a second and contribute whatever you can so I can get the IsraelShield site up and keep Israel's shield strong.
Every contribution helps.




While I was not at all surprised at the biased anti Israel reports being shown around the world about the Flotilla, I am very upset.

The world, as was to be expected, once again turned its back on the only sane Democratic country in the Middle East, Israel.

I had no expectations of the world in the past and have none in the present. I am however, terribly disappointed with the Israeli reaction to this blatantly violent terrorist attack that happened at sea and am sure it will happen again.

While the Israeli press played along with the world press and titled this “terrorist fantasy cruise” as an act of humanitarian peace chasers, Israeli soldiers were put in danger and in fact injured by the hands of these “freedom fighters”! 

Let there be no mistake! In Gaza THERE IS NO HUMANITARIAN CRISIS! Supplies are being sent daily as well as food and medicine along with millions of dollars from Israel.

Unfortunately for the Arabs, the Hamas TERRORIST government, that the people of Gaza themselves democratically elected, has been taking the supplies and money and using them for terror. 

These Flotilla ships were sent not to save or help Arabs but rather to undermine Israel’s independence as well as deliver both weapons and terrorists to aid Islamic terrorism against the State of Israel.

Let’s play na├»ve and say for just a second that the people on these ships actually gave a damn about the people in Gaza.

Let’s play "Peace activist" make believe and say the people on these ships wanted was to supply the poor Arabs with food and much needed aid. Let's make believe children in Gaza were actually starving instead of dealing with obesity.
Would it not make sense for these "peace activists" to accept Israel's demands that all goods go through Israel so that the needed security checks can be done?  Wouldn’t their peaceful behavior expedite the delivery of supplies that they claim are needed in Gaza so desperately? 
Now, let’s stop pretending and start facing the hard violent reality! The terrorists on these ships are not interested in the children of Gaza! They don’t give a rat’s ass (excuse the language) about the situation in Gaza.

The terror activists on these boats have only one thing on the minds, to terrorize Israel!
(Weapons found on the "PEACE" CRUISE)      There is a media war going on and the Arabs are unfortunately winning that war.

Israel will always lose this media war for several reasons. First and foremost, the world is simply not interested in hearing the Jew (oops I meant the truth!).
We also have a problem with lying, something our enemies have never been afraid or embarrassed to do. 

We can show the world how Israeli supplies humanitarian aid to Gaza and even prove that Hamas leaders are holding those supplies from reaching the hands of the needy and nobody will care!
We can yell and scream facts from here till doomsday and it won’t help. The world is not interested in facts. 

Gilad Shalit received no rights when he was being held captive in Gaza and no one said a word! No visitation from the red cross or his family and the world said nothing!

The UN will certainly condemn Israel and say we massacred peace activists. The Arab world will react with violence and terror against Jews across the world and the UN will accept this behavior and blame it on Israel! 

There will be no mention of the violence and attempted murder these "Peace activists" almost carried out against IDF soldiers, no one cares!
 It is not because the world doesn’t know the truth, it is because the world believes the natural place for Jews is the victim and not the strong defender! 

So let me make it perfectly clear to the world; “You can’t stand us, we know that, we have always known that but we have tried to behave so that you wouldn't actively try to destroy us.

Now that it is clear that you are immoral, anti-Semitic, pro terror and lacking of any integrity, I feel absolutely no guilt when you condemn Israel.
In fact,  I would be worried if you supported me!
The next time one of your “Peace cruises” reaches the waters of my small country, I hope the IDF gives you 3 warnings and then...



On Wednesday we will celebrated the reunification of the city of Jerusalem. Many Religious Zionist schools danced and praised Hashem while some secular schools cursed the day we occupied Palestinian Jerusalem, and some of the Chareidi sect watched with total indifference at best, and scorn at worst.

How long can this situation continue? Do we really deserve to live in an era in which Jews can freely pray at the Wailing Wall and yet have a total lack of appreciation? We are living in an era in whichsoldiers belonging to the Jewish faith are responsible for the safety and security of their own nation. Yet we complain, we hate, we have finally come home but can’t figure out how to get along!

Can this possibly be the beginning of messianic days? Is it possible that Jews who are not observant are the tools that G-d is using to start the redemption process? An army who’s high ranking officers do not keep many of the Torah laws; can we rely on them to help protect Am Yisrael? A new generation is being educated in Israel, they speak the Hebrew language and yet can’t say Shema Yisrael without stuttering, is this a sign of Messianic days?

Well it all depends on whether you look at the world with a shade of black or perhaps you have the ability to see the white light. I do not believe there is a single G-d fearing Jew who believes we have made it to the final Geula. However to deny the obvious signs is at best silly or at worst a blemish of KFUY TOVAH, ungratefulness to Hashem.

For the first time in two thousand years, there is more Torah being studied and books being written in Eretz Yisrael than ever before! We are witnessing what our sages taught is a clear sign of the Geula, the gathering of Jews from all four corners of the earth;Ethiopia, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Yemen, USA, England, Australia and more! Marriages between Ashkenazi and Sephardic or Yemenite couples are proof and witness to the modern day Kibbutz Galuyot.

The teshuva movement has taken off like never before. Jews who are completely disconnected are finding themselves on the many Jewish roots seminars in Israel. Perhaps the most unbelievable imaginable occurrence came about when the nations of the world themselves voted and gave the Jews a right to rebuild, after two thousand years, a religious, national Jewish homeland in the Land of Israel!

While many would like to color the obvious beginning of redemptions black, the truth is that more than 50% of officers in the Israeli defense forces are religious! The army is indeed a Jewish one. The IDF is shomer Shabbat and therefore does not allow any army exercises to take place on Shabbat or chagim! Military cooks by law must abide by Jewish dietary laws! On Holidays and Shabbat it is common to find a Minyan in any army base made up of all Jews. Soldiers who abide by a chareidi way of life are given special units as well as meals so that they can continue to abide by their customs and at the same time contribute to the safety of Am Yisrael and Eretz Yisrael.

While there are those who laugh at the Israeli flag and call it a sign of idolatry they forget that the flags colors were picked in order tosymbolize and remember the Techelet on Tzizit! A totally secular Jew picked colors because they symbolize the garment we wear that reminds us of our Jewish duties! It is really not that hard to see the good here! It just depends on whether you want to see it!

In order to cause Shalom Bayit, the State of Israel had allowed the brightest students to be excused from army service on the condition they spend all their time learning, Does this sound like an anti Jewish State to you?!

Why did G-d pick Ben Gurion? Ask G-d!

Perhaps we, the religious, became so used to and comfortable with our lives in Galut, our dream to return to the Land of Israel was limited to words of prayer alone. Perhaps it wasn’t G-d who picked Ben Gurion but rather it was us, the religious, who did not stand up and see the sign that it was time to come home! The fact that people who were less observant were the ones to start the process should not be a blemish on the movement but rather a symbol of shame to the religious.

Yes, there are Jews who are not observant and there are many problems in Israel today but do not forget that when we left Egypt we were on the lowest level of impurity and yet we dance and sing based only on the fact that we were freed. Torah is what has kept us alive for two thousand years of exile but do understand that when you, my Chareidi brother, make nasty remarks about our holy soldiers or even when you do not speak out against those who desecrate their memory by not standing during the siren or even the fact that your Yeshiva refuses to say a teffilah for the safety of our Chayalim, you are hurting people! You are causing tremendous pain to those who have sacrificed their own children, who are in constant danger, so that you can sit safely in your Yeshiva and learn.

Understand, my Chareidi brother, when you demonstrate hatred or negativity towards the State and in the same breath accept money from the State, money from taxes taken from hard working people who do NOT always agree with your way of life, you are causing a tremendous Chilul Hashem.

When the mobs of Chareidim who check their Etrogim with a magnifying glass learn to check their appreciation and love for their fellow Jew with same kind of awe and fear, the argument of the Geula will be totally irrelevant due to the fact that AhavatChinam will be bring the final Geula

While I am distanced from those who lead the masses, I scream to those Gedolim who stand as a lit torch for those who follow, please break your silence! Give instruction, teach cautiousness when it comes to insensitivity towards fellow Jews. Whileyou might not hear the screams and disrespect in your homes, while you yourself would never act in a way that would cause harm or embarrassment to anyone, while you may not see the hatred that is being both demonstrated and caused it exists, it is terrible and is being transgressed by those who say you are there representative!

To my non observant Jewish brothers and sisters, I understand your anger and frustration towards certain sects of Jews, However, you are Jewish! You survived two thousand years of exile and are lucky enough to witness the rebuilding or our homeland. Many of you lost family members and have paid the ultimate price of the rebuilding of our homeland. What for? Why are we here? Why is it that you are willing to put yourselves and your family in danger?

Things are not perfect, there is plenty we must do to improve The Rabbinate must learn to behave with warmth and stop collecting money for Kashrut on things like bleach. There are many Jews who dress as religiously pious people but their actions are not. There are plenty of things that must and can change BUT don’t judge Judaism by Jews! Do not throw out your two thousand year old tradition because of those who use it for deceit. We have survived two thousand years of exile and have finally come home, now is NOT the time to give up!

While It is important to you that every Jew living in Israel contribute to the physical survival of our small Jewish State, isn’t just as important that every Jew contribute to our spiritual survival as well ? It is embarrassing and totally insensitive when Jews continue walking as if nothing happened as the memorial siren wails on Yom Hazikaron, “DON”T THEY FEEL ANY CONNECTION?”

Why does it not bother you when Jews no longer remember to cry on the 9th day of av when women ate their young out of hunger and our temples were destroyed? Is it because of the time that went by? Don’t you believe in the motto “NEVER AGAIN”? Isn’t your insensitivity just as bad?

You, my Jewish brother, scream at the religious and ask, “Who gave you the right to monopolize Judaism” and at the same time keep your children ignorant when it comes to Torah study. After walking out of the flames of Europe or the shackles of Arab lands, after surviving and conserving our tradition for two thousand years in spite of our enemies, now is the time to enrich ourselves with our tradition, to strengthen our roots to show our enemies that they have not succeeded! No one has a monopoly and that is the reason you should embrace your tradition. If you distance yourselves from our tradition then it is you who is causing certain sects to claim they are the “real” Jews.

I have witnessed Jews celebrating Sylvester or even Valentine’s Day in Israel! Is this why we the Jews have survived 2000 years? What are you are celebrating? Do you understand the lack of connection, the embarrassment and insensitivity of Jews who celebrate holidays that caused your ancestors tremendous amounts of suffering death and pain? It has come to a point where more secular Jews celebrate the Christian New Year than those who keep Chag Shavuot! We have no present without our tradition and we have no future without you and every other member of the Jewish nation connecting to that tradition. Perhaps when you become emotional about your Jewish roots as you do about your Israeli roots it will be you who will bring the prophecy of peace unity into the realm of reality.

So come join the celebration, come daven, dance and rejoice in the fact that we have come home. After two thousand years of wishing, and praying, come show your gratitude to Hashem for allowing us to live in Jerusalem. Do not be impartial and do not scorn me. Put your arm around another Jew and feel the happiness in the reunification of Jerusalem. We have received a tremendous gift from Hashem!

Let us use our Jerusalem to unite the nation so that we will not argue about whether we are witnessing the beginning of redemption but rather experience total redemption.

“Because Jerusalem is not a settlement.” Bibi, Who Are You Kidding?

Binyamin Netanyahu spoke at the last AIPAC pep rally and declared, with that golden tongue of his, Israel should not be penalized for building in Jerusalem because Jerusalem is not a settlement, it is our capital!

While the AIPAC community cheered and waved their fists like a group of cheerleaders, I was wondering if there is any basis at all to the Prime Minister’s words.
Jerusalem is not a settlement? Well then, what is it?

Let's suppose for a moment that Jerusalem is a settlement, does that strip the right of Jews to build in their own country?

What is a settlement? The word originated in the Torah (the original Bible) when G-d commanded the Jews to settle the land of Israel. How a positive commandment of G-d turned into an immoral act according to the UN is a subject for a whole other article.

When Arabs settle in Iraq or Kuwait, is that settlement also an illegal establishment? When Arabs build illegally in the north, south, east, and west of Israel are they evil settlers or do they have some special status over the Jews that allows them to settle and build to their heart’s content?
Mr. Netanyahu, we build in Jerusalem because it IS a settlement!
Like a widowed mother who was separated from her son, so has Jerusalem longed for the return of the Jewish people to resettle the Jewish homeland!

The holy city of Hebron, where our Patriarchs are buried, or the tomb of Joseph, and yes, even the temple mount, are all Jewish Land.
It is time our leaders stop acting bashful and embarrassed that we miraculously survived 2000 years of exile. We must stop feeling guilty because the world waves a fist at us when we decide to build in the Land Of Israel.

Bibi, Jerusalem is not only the capital of Israel, it is a settlement! It is a settlement that has been longed for, bled over and prayed for throughout our painful history. Whether the world likes it or not, we have come home. We are resettling the land of Israel.

It is of no surprise to me that the world has a hard time understanding that we are no longer going to turn the other cheek or relinquish our historical, national, and religious rights to a hostile Muslim population. I do expect however, our leaders (at least those who are not part of the post Zionist left) to speak in a clear concise tone.
I have a hard time believing that Binyamin Netanyahu can't find the right words to explain to the world that the Jews settling the Land of Israel is not a crime! In the small chance that Bibi is at a loss for words I have prepared a letter addressed to the UN.

Dear UN,
For two millennia we have tried to live as equals in many of the countries that sit here today. We never made any attempt to take over or destroy any of you. We were very loyal citizens and were always loyal to the law of the land. Even when the laws you decreed were hurtful and many of the laws anti-Semitic in nature, we realized we were guests and behaved!

When the Nazi war machine tried to annihilate us from the world, all we heard was your sigh of relief, 'maybe they would succeed in ridding the world of us'. There were no yells of occupation or illegal building of camps or the use of excessive force (like cyclone B!). You all sat quietly as we were systematically being murdered, raped, abused, gassed, and shot! Some of the countries sitting here today actually felt that meeting Hitler was a good idea! AHEM – England!

After the European nightmare was finally over, we looked for help, a place to gather the survivors. What we found was closed gates all over the world! Not one country happily opened their gates to allow our survivors to resettle!
After coming to the understanding that you, the world, have no interest in us Jews, we turned home. We came to the Land of Israel with the goal of resettling our religious, historical, and national home!

We had no intention to fight or kick out the Arab population that was living here. We came in peace and wished to settle the land that was empty and dead. When the Jews of Hebron were slaughtered by local Arabs in 1929, it came as a complete surprise. We could not understand what drove the Arabs to brutally attack their Jewish neighbors who had always treated them with respect.

Even you Britain, acted with deceit and incited the Arabs to attack us. You refused our cry for arms to defend ourselves while you shut your eyes as the Arabs collected guns and ammunition. Time and time again, our call to the Arabs to live in peace was answered with violence and brutality.

When the UN voted on our right to a national homeland, all the surrounding Arab countries united in the goal of finishing Hitler's job and you did nothing! First in 1948 then again in 56', 67, 73 the Arabs tried again and again to destroy the Jewish homeland!
Till the war of 1967, the Arabs prohibited Jews form visiting the Western Wall, the cave of patriarchs, and other holy sites. Jordan destroyed synagogues throughout Jerusalem and turned our cemeteries into Latrines!

There was no freedom of religion, but a racist, fascist Muslim regime that reminded us of darker times. In 1967 Israel was once again fighting for her survival against 7 Muslim armies. To the world’s surprise and perhaps disappointment, Israel came out victorious in that glorious war!

We freed the holy sites from the racist claws of Muslim rule and opened the holy city of Jerusalem to all religions! In a hideous act of betrayal, the Israeli government handed over the keys of the temple mount to the Mufti (Muslim religious leader). Can you imagine the Muslims handing over the keys to Mecca to a Jew?! Is there any greater act of trust than Israel handing over the holiest of holies to her enemy?!

What did we do with the land we freed? We settled it! We planted trees, opened businesses and the land blossomed for the first time in 2000 years! We allowed Muslims and Christians to be part of our Parliament and 15% percent of our small country consists of Arab citizens!

There is total religious freedom throughout Israel! In how many Muslim countries do you find the religious or personal freedom we allow in Israel? In what Arab country to you find Jews who have rights? In what Arab country does anyone except the Muslims have rights?!

In 1964, Yasser Arafat created the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization) This terrorist group had only one goal, the destruction of the Jewish State. The PLO attacked civilian populations in Israel as well as abroad.

NOT ONCE have you, the UN, ever issued a condemnation of any Palestinian or Arab terror! In fact you have always excused these brutal murders with the ludicrous justification that Israel is occupying their land. Perhaps the Jews of Germany should blow up the German parliament? Perhaps Spain should receive some Jewish suicide bombers? Perhaps England should suffer several brutal massacres and murders? Aren't we the Jews, deserving of a good revenge on almost all of you sitting here today?
BUT we the Jewish people do not act in such hideous ways! We do not glorify death, we glorify life!

We don't blow up your towers or hijack your plains, we don't burn your flags or call for the death of the western infidel world, we do not call for our well deserved revenge. We want to live!
You have the audacity, the CHUTZPA to shake a fist at us and tell us it is a crime to settle our land? SHAME ON YOU!

Condemn us and punish us to your heart’s desire. We are used to your shameful, hypocritical anti-Semitic attitude.

Let me assure all the countries who sit around the UN table.

We will settle, we will build, we will fight for our survival!

We will use excessive force against those who try to kill us.

We will not be apologetic for using fighter jets and tanks.

We will fight with all our might against those who threaten our very existence.


Is Obama against Israel or America?

For the first four years of my elementary school education, I pledged allegiance to the flag of the United States of America. I said it with pride as I placed my right hand over my heart in an act that demonstrated honesty and integrity. I actually felt that I, a Jewish youngster, was proud to be part of the great nation called America.

Can you find the Democracy in the picture below? (the green area )

It would make perfect sense for America to side with the Jewish State for nothing more than the fact that we are the only true Democracy in the Middle East. Without Israel, the rest of the Arab nations would have become subordinates to the Soviet war machine, which would have left America standing alone in a sea of fanatic Muslim countries without the ability to park their planes or soldiers in the area.

Perhaps the fact that almost every terrorist group that exists in the world today is Muslim might have convinced the American public that Muslims cannot be trusted. Perhaps the burning flames that brought down the Twin Towers and killed thousands of innocent Americans should have really closed the case with a guilty verdict pointing at the Muslim world. Instead of the Muslims having to pay the price of their extremist terrorist groups, the fist of American justice has been aimed once again at Israel.

Picture taken from - Hizb ut-Tahrir’s branch in Malaysia promoted its July 26, 2009 conference for a global Islamic Supremacist Caliphate with an image of a “beheaded” Statue of Liberty and NYC in smoking ruins. The HT web site refers to democracy as “perverted.”
Today I am left with a feeling of betrayal, betrayal not against the Jews or against Israel but rather against the free world. American foreign policy has taken a turn towards hugging terrorists under the ridiculous claim of curing the hatred and rift between the Muslim and Western worlds. Instead of America becoming super cautious and suspicious of any nation that cheers Muslim dictators, America has turned the pressure on her allies in order to appease those who want to destroy her! 
When President Obama talks of “bridging the gap” between the Muslim world and the United States, what gap is he trying to bridge? Perhaps the gap that was caused by witnessing Muslim terrorists screaming at the top of their lungs that they want to see the destruction of America along with the rest of the infidels? Maybe the number of burning American flags on the streets of countless Muslim cities caused the gap? Or was it the fact that while America was fighting in the gulf, the Muslims were dancing on the rooftops as they saw Iraqi missiles rain down on civilian populations that caused the gap? Whatever caused the rift, hugging these terrorist will not bridge the gap but rather cause a Tsunami!

The nations of the free world seem to be playing in the same orchestra as Obama. While the world twists Israel’s arm to relinquish the Jewish homeland to Palestinian thugs, the world applauded the arch terrorist, Yasser Arafat,as he accepted the Nobel peace prize!
 There is no incident that demonstrates the absurdity, immorality, and obvious bias of world opinion more than the fact that Yasser Arafat was put up on a pedestal and given the highest honor along with a big fat check for being a man of PEACE! Perhaps this honor was given in order to bridge the rift between the PLO terrorist organization and their victims,  the free world!
One would think that the American public would be able to see clearly that the Muslim world has chosen THEM as their #1 enemy. It would seem obvious to anyone whose eyes and ears are working properly that the hugging and bowing to the Muslim world is not only immoral but dangerous to the survival of the free world. Unfortunately, the hypnotic effect of the liberal utopian fantasy has destroyed common sense and has caused the natural drive of survival to prostrate before the fairytale hallucinations of world peace.
The Arabs don’t hate Israel because of the territories. The Muslims don’t hate America because of the war in Iraq or Afghanistan. American flags are not burned because America supports Israel. King Abdullah didn’t meet with Hitler in WW2 because of the settlements! Arafat did not start the PLO in 1964 (before the settlement block existed!) with the goal of pushing all the Jews into the sea because of the settlements!
It is time we understand that this war is a war based in a violent unforgiving religion called Islam. It is a JIHAD! (Holy War). This is a clash of cultures and morals.
 This is not my opinion but rather statements vocalized by the leaders of the Muslim world. We are fighting a religious war. It is between a world that believes in freedom and equality along with the sanctity of human life fighting against a belief system that curses any hint of personal freedom, treats women as subhuman and glorifies death while preaching the destruction of those who do not accept the Islamic religion.
The Palestinians have no history, no religion, and no claims whatsoever over one inch of the land of Israel. Yet for some odd reason, when Israel decides to build in an existing neighborhood of Jerusalem, OBAMA screams at us for ruining the chance for peace. 
One would think busses blowing up and killing innocent civilians would be the reason the peace talks failed. One would think that the random Qassam shelling of innocent Israeli civilian populations for 7 years would be the stumbling block to peace! 
Perhaps the mistrust between the Jews and the Muslims was caused by the 7 wars the Arabs waged on Israel with goal of destroying the only Democracy in the Middle East
One might suspect that the Palestinian public support of Iran and their insane dictator would cause the downfall of peace talks! Who would have ever guessed that Israel building apartments in her capital city was the main obstacle to peace?

So what is it that causes the world to bow to those who look to destroy it?

 Why does the President of United States of America choose to bridge the gap between a fundamentalist and violent terrorism-based religion and the American way? If your child was attending school with a murderer, would you want him to become close with the murderer or distance himself as much as possible? Why is Europe choosing to side with the Muslims and constantly condemning Israel? What have the Muslims given to the world that causes the mantra; “Must appease the Muslims”?
The American public is not stupid. America does believe in freedom and justice. What about her President?  Why does Hussein Obama insult and Israel time and time again? Why does Obama support and back those who have nothing in common with the United States belief in personal freedom? Some say he is a Muslim, some say he is ignorant about the Middle East and others say he is lacking experience. Whatever the reason, it is obvious that the president of the United States of America favore Islamic regimes over a Democratic Israel.
What about the American public? Didn’t they witness the murders of thousands of Americans and the downfall of the Twin Towers? Didn’t they witness the endless hijackings of plains in the 1980’s by Arafat’s thugs? What motivates the American public to elect a president whose middle name is Hussein and whose American identity is in question in addition to his connection to fanatic Muslim preachers?
I believe the American public, just like the liberal left in Israel, has been drugged by the fantasy of world peace. Doves flying, balloons being set free and other childish make believe happy go lucky ideas. Unfortunately, here in Israel, we don't get  to enjoy these fantasies of peace because of the Muslim terrorist bomber who won’t allow us to shoot up and become high on a virtual reality. This “peace drug” is so strong that Americans will try to bridge the “gap” and become close to their enemies instead of fighting them. They will even turn their backs on their only true democratic ally in the sea of Middle East Totalitarian Muslim countries.
The question is not is America friend or Foe. The question is when will someone warn Uncle Sam to wake up? All I know is, it better happen soon before someone puts a burke on the Statue of Liberty.
