Thoughts from an IDF soldier in the field

Once a year, Israeli soldiers are called into reserve military duty known as Miluim. Men and some women leave their homes and families and report for as long as two weeks to a month.
This past year I was drafted during the Passover holiday.

As I left my home my youngest of four children turned to me and said, "Daddy thank you for protecting Israel." As I hugged him, a mixture of pride and fear came over me. I smiled at him and said; "Daddy will be home before you know it."
It took me 2 hours to reach my base and after 3 days of intense training we were shipped out to operations.
I received my gear, my weapon and my vehicle; the Hummer.

I made one last call to my wife and kids, told them I love them and then climbed into my Hummer and we were off. Our objective was to stakeout wanted terrorists and keep the civilian population safe and out of harm's way. While full of motivation to succeed, it is clear to me and every other soldier that these operations come with great risk.

As we traveled through the rolling hills of Judea, I was mesmerized by the beauty of the land. Green hills and mountain ranges that cause a certain feeling of awe.
Then a feeling of sadness came over me and I turned to one of my brothers in arms and said, "The Arabs are so ridiculous, if they would only lay down their weapons and leave the ideology of Jihad and destroying Israel they can have an awesome life." The area here is absolutely gorgeous.

As that thought crossed my mind, the communication radio started screaming. A group of Palestinians are ambushing cars with boulders.We received reports of Israeli women and children who were on their way home from work and school when a large crowd of Palestinian terrorists attacked their cars with boulders and steel pellets shot from slingshots and other makeshift weapons.
Here is an example of a car that was ambushed by a group of Palestinian terrorists.

In this particular car there was a girl who was picked up from school by her mother. They were not carrying weapons, they were not soldiers, they did nothing to incite this hideous cowardly act!

What is it in the Palestinian terrorist's mind that justifies targeting a mother and a daughter? 
Why would anyone characterize this behavior as normal?!

Please don't try the "IDF kills children" line. The IDF NEVER targets innocent civilians. There is a big difference between casualties of war, which in itself is tragic, and intentionally targeting women and children.

Do the Palestinians really think this will cause the Israeli people or the IDF to believe in any chance of a peaceful solution to the Israeli Arab conflict? Do they think we will surrender? Stoning incidents like this is exactly why the IDF increases patrols and roadblocks. These incidents cause more damage to the Arab population living in the area than anyone else.
After evacuating the injured and towing the car we got back into our Hummer when the European "Peace"activists came out of their hiding places. They were pointing their fingers at us and screaming, "NAZIS! FASCISTS! APARTHEID! "
Arabs attempt murder by stoning cars that are driven by JEWISH women and we are the Nazis, Fascists and Apartheidists? I don't understand! 

Arabs target people based on their religion, they attack random cars and people whose only crime is belonging to the Jewish faith, and we are Nazis?!
These "Peace" activists witnessed an attempted murder and know full well that the ONLY reason we are here is in reaction to the hate crime they witnessed!
Aren't they interested in truth?!
The answer is an absolute NO!. 

Truth has lost its meaning a long time ago. These activists are interested in truth as much as the Palestinian terrorists are interested in peace. 
You would expect a well dressed English speaking reporter to tell the truth, wouldn't you?
Do Jews living in a certain area justify Arab terror? Why were Press cameras there? Why didn't they do anything? Why did they report the story as if an Israeli intentionally attempted to run over an Arab child?. The press was there because they were invited by the Arab mob to document the Jewish reaction to an Islamic lynching!

Here's what really happened!

After a long day we returned to our base angry and confused. Before we were able to untie our boots, the siren screams and we were once again called out.
This time it was Molotov cocktail bottles and roadside bombs used against Israeli civilian vehicles on the road. No soldiers, no weapons, just women and children! 
So we have gone from rocks to explosives and as we arrived and dismounted our Hummer with our guns loaded, we found a swarm of peace activists, this time from the United States.

As I approach one of the activists, out came the cameras and they started snapping away. 
I smile for the cameras and turn to the long haired, American activist and ask; WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM?" 
He turns back to me, spits at the ground and starts with his barrage of insults.  NAZI, FASCIST, MURDERER, OCCUPIER, BABY KILLER! 
With my innocence and my naivety, I calmly ask; "Did you not just witness the Molotov cocktail bottles and roadside bombs?" Michael ( gave me his name after a short exchange) explained that these acts are acts of freedom and that any Jew who drives these roads are murderers and deserve what they get.

It was then that things became perfectly clear to me. This is not about Israel or settlements or even Palestine. This is about the belief by those who claim to fight for freedom, that Arabs have a moral right and even a duty to maim, kill and terrorize Jews. 
It was at that point I decided to arrest Michael who was deported back to America. Sorry America, Michael is coming home. 

I was on duty for two more weeks and my objective is to protect my people. The screaming by those "Peace" activists or the condemnations by the UN have no effect on me. I will keep my morals not because of some activist snapping pictures or some anti-Semite biased report. I will keep my morals because I belong to the nation of Israel, in the Land of Israel and most important I serve in the ISRAEL DEFENSE FORCES.

World Leaders Must Wake Up! Including Israel

Over the past 50 years we have seen fanatic Islam dig its claws into almost every country across the world. We have seen the more secular, moderate Arab countries lose their ground and succumb to fanatic Islamic terrorist groups.
For the past 35 years, America has been supplying Egypt with the most advanced Military weaponry based on the belief that she is a modern secular Arab country. Unfortunately for everyone, including the civilians of Egypt, we are witnessing the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization filling the void Mubarak left.
On March 19, 2007 Egypt prohibited parties from using religion as a basis for political activity. America, figuring they can buy fanatic Islamic groups has been giving BILLIONS of dollars to Egypt's military.
Unfortunately, the Muslim Brotherhood has now taken a front seat in Egypt's politics and has, against it's promise to America, announced it will run in the next Egyptian elections. In case you do not understand the danger, the Muslim brotherhood states the Quran as the only sole reference point for the life of a Muslim family, individual, community and state".


Another example of a moderate Islamic secular country who is cocooning itself into a fanatic butterfly is Turkey.

For years Israel has held joint Military drills as well as shared intelligence with what seemed to be a moderate, secular Islamic regime. Once again we are witnessing just how foolish we were. It's not about lack of world respect or financial turmoil but rather a Muslim leader who would rather side with fanatic terrorist organizations than with Western countries. 

Prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdo─čan, who has been a long time friend of Israel has turned his back and has given his support to fanatic Islamic groups such as the IHH, who were responsible for the Flotilla terror cruise attempt to breach Israel's borders.

Why would Turkey, a secular country that enjoys world support, side with Muslim terrorists?
Why would they risk international condemnation and an end to a long lasting peaceful relationship with Israel?
Turkey has the second largest military in NATO behind the US. Can you imagine if Turkey decides to align herself with the fanatic Islamic regimes?

This is not about racism or hatred. It is about the way Islamic leaders are using their power to build relationships with Islamic Terror groups. 

Europe has seen their share of Islamic terror as well. France and England have been taken over and it will only be a matter of time till the USA will be under threat from within. 
While there are peaceful and good Muslims, it seems the masses follow religious fanaticism that usually lead to innocent people dying in the name of Allah. 

Israel has been under constant attack for over 60 years.
Arab armies have attacked Israel with vengeance and have threatened over and over again to destroy Israel in a holy Jihad and throw the Jewish inhabitants into the sea.
The Arab masses are being incited from a very young age to accept total loyalty to the way of Jihad. Children's TV programs that are paid for by the US, have been used by Hamas and other organizations to spread hate.
Here is a Muslim cleric in the US(!!) preaching Jew and America Hatred.
This cleric was from Ohio!
Children's TV program from Gaza -Disney Islam style
Now that it is clear we have a serious problem on our hands what is the solution? 
The first step is to realize this is a problem and not to make believe it's just going to go away. Fanatic Islam is not going anywhere unless it involves 72 virgins! 
The second issue we have to understand is fanatic Islam does not live by the same rules or culture we in the Western world believe in.

 They will blow themselves into a thousand pieces based on their ideology of hate and Jihad. They will kill their own and cause suffering while believing they are doing the duty of Allah. THEY CAN NOT BE BOUGHT  INTO INFIDELITY! 

They are not interested in your money or respect, they do not want your culture or sciences. They want you and your beliefs to disappear. 

As long as the leaders of the world do not understand this we will continue live a fool's life while people and countries continue to blow up in the name of the Allah.

Barack Obama is not dangerous because he might be a Muslim or not a natural born American, he is dangerous because instead of fighting fanatic Islam he bows to them!

He shows them respect and does not demand any in return. It's not about ego, it's about what fuels fanatic Islamic regimes. When you compliment and beg for peace from those who have said out loud that they seek your destruction, you justify their violence and anchor their belief that their violent way is the only way.

If the Twin Towers were destroyed in the name of Islam and thousands lost their lives to those who believe they are doing the work of the Quran, then not to have racial profiling is ludicrous!
If Jews were blowing people up in the name of G-d, while I would be embarrassed at the airport when they look at me suspiciously, my anger and embarrassment would not be towards TSA but at those using my G-D to do what is directly against what the Bible teaches.
I do feel bad for innocent Muslims who have to face racial profiling and I wish the world would not have these problems, but, better to be offended than dead.

Israel is as much to blame than anyone else. For 64 years Israel has put out her hand for Peace with the same gullible belief. The belief that this is about land or that financial benefits will convince fanatic Islam to change. Every time Israel surrenders land, security or frees terrorists she actively fuels Hamas and other terrorist organizations. 

when Israel trades 1000 murderers for Gilad Shalit (Happy you are home buddy) she empowers those who want to destroy her. Unfortunately, Israeli politicians have been hit with the Obama syndrome. They try to bridge gaps and bring peace with a partner that is just not interested. 

To all Muslim people,
You are in just as much danger as the rest of us. If you don't stand up for your right to be part of this world and live in peace with the rest of us, you will pay the worst price. I understand your fear but it is either take a stand for freedom or live in fear forever.
