From The Jawa Report which has the Liveleak video:

A video so awesomely awesome, that one must recalibrate the awesomeness scale after seeing it! Here’s the synopsis:

IDF officers get attacked by Hamas. One Hamas bad guy gets popped right off the bat. The other Hamas guy throws a grenade. He must have thrown it like a girl, because it’s way off. IDF now aware of second Hamas guy who prepares to throw second grenade.

Instead of running away, the Charles Atlas of the IDF runs toward the Hamas guy, picks him up, and shields himself from the blast with the unlucky 90 pound wimp’s body.

The score? Two Hamas terrorists dead, one bad ass mo-fo from the IDF slightly wounded.

In the most moral army in the world, instead of blowing up the tunnel, they [the soldiers] rescue the one who is trying to kill you.
After smuggling weapons they [the Palestinians] receive:
Medical care, blankets, a cup of tea.

‘Evil and inhumane’ Israel gives medical treatment to young Palestinian children:

‘Heartless and uncaring’ Israel admits child for medical care 31 Dec 2008:

And starvation-causing Israel ships tons of fruits and veg for Gazans.

CNN airs footage of Palestinian ‘doctors’ performing obviously fake ‘CPR’ on a Palestinian boy who ‘died’:

LGF and Bob Owens broke the story of CNN’s broadcast of suspicious Gaza footage featured two pro-Hamas doctors engaging in medical theater of jihad — by faking a bizarre form of CPR on a Palestinian boy who “died.”

LGF reader “Last Mohican,” a doctor, makes a strong case that this is an obvious fake.

I’m no military expert, but I am a doctor, and this video is bullsh-t. The chest compressions that were being performed at the beginning of this video were absolutely, positively fake. The large man in the white coat was NOT performing CPR on that child. He was just sort of tapping on the child’s sternum a little bit with his fingers. You can’t make blood flow like that. Furthermore, there’s no point in doing chest compressions if you’re not also ventilating the patient somehow. In this video, I can’t tell for sure if the patient has an endotracheal tube in place, but you can see that there is nobody bag-ventilating him (a bag is actually hanging by the head of the bed), and there is no ventilator attached to the patient. In a hospital, during a code on a ventilated patient, somebody would probably be bagging the patient during the chest compressions. And they also would have moved the bed away from the wall, so that somebody could get back there to intubate the patient and/or bag him. In short, the “resuscitation scene” at the beginning is fake, and it’s a pretty lame fake at that.

So the question is, were they re-enacting the resuscitation scene by repeating their actions on a corpse, because the child had died earlier? It’s likely that the answer is no, that child is still alive, and is just an actor pretending to be a child who was killed. Why do I say that? Because the big guy in the white coat, if he’s really a doctor, nurse, nurse’s aid, EMT, or any sort of health care provider at all would be entirely aware that tickling the boy’s sternum doesn’t really look like actual chest compressions. If the boy was dead, the man would have done a more convincing job in compressing the chest. The taps on the chest that he’s doing are the sort of thing you see in bad TV dramas, when you don’t want to make the poor actor playing the victim uncomfortable by really pushing on his chest. I think the man in the white coat knows this child is actually alive, and is making the simulated chest compressions gentle so as not to hurt the child. My guess is that he assumed the videographer, like those on better TV shows, would have been smart enough not to film as far down as the man’s hands on the chest.

ALSO:

…you don’t give chest compressions to the victim’s abdomen as the guy on the right was doing. You also don’t fiddle with a monitor that isn’t hooked up to the victim although there’s several rough cuts in the video so that you can’t exactly tell the order of the footage.

I took infant, child, and adult CPR courses several times and they repeatedly drilled into us that you have do respiration plus 20-30 compressions (that’s changed over the years), each one placed on the sternum going 1-2 inches and that if you’re doing it right, you’re probably going to crack ribs. The victim is 12 years old, so a two handed technique is workable, although some CPR techniques suggest using 1 hand and only compressing the chest 1 inch.

The guy giving the compressions isn’t even doing it in the right position to maximize the chances for the kid to live. It almost looks like the guy is massaging the kids belly, not his chest. His hand position appears significant lower than it should be.

The following is from an LGF reader who is a neurosurgeon, dentate:

OK, as a neurosurgeon (like Sanjay Gupta!) who has seen plenty of trauma, that was NOT a real resuscitation. It was not even a good fake. The doctors involved in a code, especially for a young child, are anxious and tense, and would be huddled at the bedside and looking at the child and at the monitors, not pacing around and chatting as Gilbert is doing while the bearded guy taps on the chest. Also, this is a death due to rocket trauma. Aside from a tiny round spot that looks like it came from an IV, there is no blood there, not on the sheets, not on the doctors. It was obviously not head trauma, because you see the purported victim’s head later, with not a scratch; it’s not exsanguination due to a traumatic amputation, since the arms and legs seem intact too. this would have been chest or abdominal trauma. What’s the injury here, folks? Where are the chest tubes? Where is the blood?

And the nurse who commented above is correct, this is not what family looks like at a code. They look as though they were instructed to cry. If your child is dying in front of you, and Dr. Gilbert is pacing around, not bent over your child, you get hysterical. I know of several instances of doctors having their teeth knocked out when they came to tell a family member that a child had died, and that is here in the States.

Finally, it defies belief, even if you take the video at face value, that nobody comments on the idiocy of sending your kids to play on the roof in the middle of a war zone. No one at CNN thinks that this is peculiar?

It has also been determined that the videographer who filmed his brother’s “death” is the general manager of a company that hosts web sites for Hamas.

Dr. Gilbert was allowed into Gaza by the Israelis just 2 days ago to provide medical care. He was involved in faking war crimes less than 48 hours later.

Gaza War – all the facts, the full story:

What if you were under constant rocket attack?

If it were Mexico armed with Qassam rockets, this much of the USA would be in range for attacks:

—————————————-

Israeli ground forces move into Gaza night vision:

What daily life was like in Gaza, December 3rd 2008 (no shortage, no evil Zionist siege):

The largest humanitarian aid transfer to the Gaza Strip since the beginning of Israel’s counter attack (ask yourself why they are giving mercy relief to the enemy if the Jews are so evil):

Speaking of that… Guess what Hamas does with the aid meant for Gazans?

Hamas on Monday raided some 100 aid trucks that Israel had allowed into Gaza, stole their contents and sold them to the highest bidders.

The IDF said that since terminal activity is coordinated with UNRWA and the Red Cross, Israel could do nothing to prevent such raids, Israel Radio reported.

And they rob aid convoys even after the conflict has stopped:

Jordan’s Petra News Agency reports that Hamas hijacked Jordanian aid trucks after they crossed into Gaza through the Kerem Shalom crossing on Tuesday.

The aid was to go to UNRWA. As the truck drivers started unloading the aid, Hamas gunmen opened fire on them and forced them to go to Hamas-run stores.

Terrorists from the Gaza Strip fire mortars from an UNRWA boys’ school in Gaza on 29 Oct 2007. Hamas is clearly to blame when civilians get injured when Israel destroys Hamas’ weapons:

They were firing rockets from the school again today. Then Israel blew them up. Rockets and launcher were found there after the counterstrike. So whose fault, eh?

According to Palestinians, it was DEFINITELY Hamas’ fault:

Residents of a Gaza neighborhood are confirming Israel’s claim that Hamas militants had opened fire from the cover of a U.N. school where hundreds of Palestinians had
sought refuge.

Israeli forces fired back with mortars, and hospital officials says three dozen Palestinians were killed.

Two residents say a group of militants had fired their mortars from a street near the school, then fled into a crowd of people in the streets. The Israeli army says two of the dead were militants. It accuses Gaza’s Hamas rulers of “cynically” using civilians as human shields.

And the IDF has uncovered more booby-trapped schools.

Israeli politicians picketed outside the Jerusalem headquarters of UNRWA (video at link):

The protesters spoke to reporters reminding them that for the past 60 years UNRWA has been a nest for inciting hatred against Israel and Jews. They teach children to hate Israel and they are collaborating with terrorists. Just yesterday Hamas terrorists launched missiles at Israel from an UNRWA school. The protesters demanded that UNRWA stop being a base for terror and a shelter for terrorists.

And now the media is finally starting to uncover the Hamas duplicity:

In the Tal-al Hawa neighborhood nearby, however, Talal Safadi, an official in the leftist Palestinian People’s Party, said that resistance fighters were firing from positions all around the hospital. He shrugged that off, having a bigger beef with Hamas. “They failed to win the battle.”

And finally, the UN admits that the IDF did not hit Gaza school (and that Hamas is stealing aid).

Israel Air Force huge bomb dropped on mosque that Islam-disrespecting Hamas used to hide lots of weapons:

————————————

And now that the conflict is temporarily over, Hamas is busily torturing Palestinians to show off its ‘muscle’:

Hamas militiamen have rounded up hundreds of Fatah activists on suspicion of “collaboration” with Israel during Operation Cast Lead, Fatah members in the Gaza Strip told The Jerusalem Post on Monday.

They said the Hamas crackdown on Fatah intensified after the cease-fire went into effect early Sunday morning.

The Fatah members and eyewitnesses said the detainees were being held in school buildings and hospitals that Hamas had turned into make-shift interrogation centers.

[…]

A Fatah official in Ramallah told the Post that at least 100 of his men had been killed or wounded as a result of the massive Hamas crackdown. Some had been brutally tortured, he added.

The official said that the perpetrators belonged to Hamas’s armed wing, Izaddin Kassam, and to the movement’s Internal Security Force.

According to the official, at least three of the detainees had their eyes put out by their interrogators, who accused them of providing Israel with wartime information about the location of Hamas militiamen and officials.

[…]

“They were afraid to confront the Israeli army and many Hamas militiamen even ran away during the fighting,” he said. “Hamas is now venting its anger and frustration against our Fatah members there.”

Eyewitnesses said that Hamas militiamen had turned a number of hospitals and schools into temporary detention centers where dozens of Fatah members and supporters were being held on suspicion of helping Israel during the war.

The eyewitnesses said that a children’s hospital and a mental health center in Gaza City, as well as a number of school buildings in Khan Yunis and Rafah, were among the places that Hamas had turned into “torture centers.”

A Fatah activist in Gaza City claimed that as many as 80 members of his faction were either shot in the legs or had their hands broken for allegedly defying Hamas’s house-arrest orders.

“What’s happening in the Gaza Strip is a new massacre that is being carried out by Hamas against Fatah,” he said. “Where were these [Hamas] cowards when the Israeli army was here?”

[…]

Relatives of Abed al-Gharabli, a former Fatah security officer who spent 12 years in Israeli prisons, said he was kidnapped by a group of Hamas militiamen who shot him in both legs after severely torturing him.

And they also murdered a Palestinian human rights activist:

A Palestinian human rights activist and journalist who used to work for the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem has been executed by Hamas on charges of “collaboration” with Israel, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip said over the weekend.

Ghanem, according to the Palestinians, was among dozens of suspected “collaborators” who were executed by Hamas during Operation Cast Lead.

Watch video of Hamas men brutally breaking a Fatah member’s legs with a baseball bat. PEACE!!!!

Besides the tragedy of the incident, it also once again demonstrates the bravery of our soldiers, with reports that IDF battalion commander Colonel Avi Peled, who was wounded in the incident, refused to be taken for treatment until after he directed the evacuation of all the wounded troops and called in artillery fire and IAF air strikes on enemy targets.

    Monday 5th January, 2009

    Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak stunned visiting foreign ministers Monday when he said he wanted Israel to emerge as the winner in the current conflict in Gaza.

    The European foreign ministers, headed by Karel Schwarzenberg of the Czech Republic, whose country currently holds the European Union’s rotating presidency, met with Mubarak in Cairo before travelling on to Jerusalem.

    The ministers met with Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni after arriving in Jerusalem and briefed her on their discussions with the Egyptian president.

    It was at that meeting that ministers confided that Mubarak had told them ‘Hamas must not be allowed to emerge from the fighting with the upper hand.’

    “I should much rather see reasonable agreement with the Arabs on the basis of living together in peace than the creation of a Jewish state. Apart from practical consideration, my awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power no matter how modest. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain — especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight strongly, even without a Jewish state.”

  7. Scott Thong Says:

    Perhaps, but that leaves the twin questions of:

    1) How do you prevent suicide bomb and other attacks by Arabs on Jews when both communities are freely mixing?

    2) How do you address the demographic time bomb question, where Arabs have far higher birth rates than Jews? Within decades, Arabs in the Levant may legally and democratically take away the rights of Jews.

  8. hutchrun Says:

    Yet Hamas is not the only Palestinian group at fault. In 2005, shortly after the Israeli withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, I met with the chief of staff to the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas. My question to him: Now that we have uprooted thousands of Jews and empowered Gazans to be masters of their own fate, can we hope that within a year’s time there will be fewer refugees in the camps? “Absolutely not,” he said. “The refugees will be relocated only in the context of the final status [agreement]. How can we move them if we do not know where they will live? Maybe they will live in Israel.”

    In withdrawing from Gaza, Israel made painful concessions for peace by forcibly removing Jews from their homes. And yet even the Palestinian Authority, the most moderate among Palestinian political groups, would not consider easing their own people’s plight in the wake of Israel’s compromise. This is because the suffering of the refugees is essential to their broader political struggle.

    How does the West respond to the obvious exploitation of Palestinian refugees? Soon after my meeting with Mr. Abbas’s chief of staff, I met with the ambassador of one of the West’s most enlightened countries. I asked: Why are the Palestinians not willing to help their own refugees? “I can understand them,” he answered. “After all, they don’t want the refugee problem to be taken off the agenda.”

    This reflexive “understanding” for the Palestinian leaders’ abuse of their own people is the heart of the problem. For decades, the international community has actively assisted in building the terrorists’ unique system of control — over where Palestinians live and in what conditions, and over what they think — by allowing terrorists to turn the refugee camps into the center of the Palestinian war machine

  9. hutchrun Says:

    Arutz Sheva reports that a study by the Terror and Intelligence Information Center shows that when the IDF warns Arab civilians of an impending attack in their neighborhood, Hamas uses the information in order to organize the civilians into human shields in the hope of protecting the targets from the IDF’s wrath. The Center explains that Hamas considers this a ‘win-win’ situation:

    If the IDF cancels its planned attack on a terror target, the terrorists receive a respite. If the IDF attacks despite the human shields, it can then be portrayed as a killer of women and children. The tactic was inspired by the experience of Hizbullah is using such methods against Israel, the study determines.

    The study notes that Hamas leaders Ismail Haniyeh (still in hiding) and Nizar Riyyan (who was killed by the IDF last week) publicly boasted of using the tactic. The real questions are why the world allows Hamas to get away with this tactic, and why their use of this tactic should surprise anyone.

    This is how the IDF is “not” using human shields:

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/7818122.stm

    “Israeli troops had forced Palestinian civilians to stay in their homes after taking them over as sniper positions or bases, it said quoting sources in Gaza.”

    “In several well-documented cases in the past, Israeli troops have forced Palestinian civilians, at gunpoint, to go before them into buildings from which they feared attack.
    Israeli judges banned the practice in 2005, but Amnesty says troops “frequently” imprison Palestinian families in homes used as military observation and firing positions.”

  17. halfbreed Says:

    A recent ISRAELI report holds that the IDF has been using ‘human shields’ in its operation in Nablus. There was on-scene filming by Channel 10 news, and the Jerusalem Post reported this as using ‘human shields.’ Haaretz, Arutz Sheva, and Y Net News have not weighed in on this yet. What is it that happened? It is clear from the photos on JPost’s website that a Palestinian was used to open the door to a home that might have weapons/guns/munitions, in order to basically prevent the person inside from opening fire on the IDF. This was already ruled illegal by the Israeli Supreme Court. I ask you kind folks whether this should be considered the use of ‘human shields.’ Lest we forget the difference between this and what the Palestinians do – they use human shields to protect weapons factories and terrorists. The IDF, in this instance, used the Palestinian to prevent open fire on the IDF, and a resulting return fire. Some of the human shields’ Palestinians use are voluntary, and some are not. In the case of the Palestinian used by the IDF, it most probably was NOT voluntary. Is this morally the same thing? My thought is that this is NOT the same thing. Israel used this person in order to PREVENT gun fire from erupting (due to Palestinians protecting munitions sites), and SAVE lives. The Palestinians use human shields in order to shame Israel when it acts in its military capacity to seek out terrorists (by inadvertant death to civilians – in other words, the Palestinians WANT these civilians to die), or to prevent the IDF from going after weapon factories, and gun and drug smuggling tunnels. In short, the motives are totally different. War is hell. Sometimes tactics such as what was recently used by the IDF are necessary…and the term ‘human shield’ has a politically loaded implication and should NOT be used to describe what the IDF did. Yet the Israeli Supreme Court ruled that measures used to protect the lives of the IDF are illegal. They are hampering the war effort. And for that matter, just who is on the Israeli Supreme Court, anyway? This is an issue, as there evidently is a court limitation bill in the works. Carl in Jerusalem wrote a report…and it may surprise you.

    The “neighbor” technique is problematic. Simple, effective, but problematic – when you go after a wanted terrorist, you have his neighbor knock on the door and tell him that IDF are here to arrest him. Otherwise they have this strange tendency to shoot as soon as they see soldiers.

    http://cultureforall.blogspot.com/2007/03/is-idf-using-human-shields-in-west-bank.html

    This is very unfair with the neighbor. But on the other hand, there are two alternatives:

    1) letting Israelis die

    2) killing the suspect, probably along with lots of civilians.

    Tricky choice, innit?

  19. farkestinian Says:

    The intellectual minnows on the left who bleat on about Israel’s ‘disproportionate’ response to Hamas lobbing thousands of rockets into its territory in the hope of killing as many Jews as they can miss an important point.

    Hamas would kill more if they could.

    Thousands more.

    The fact that most of the Hamas rockets do little damage is described by many on the left as nothing more than an annoyance, an inconvenience to be stoically borne by Israel.

    In making the statement they demonstrate their understanding that Israel is ‘better than that’; a society that has higher standards than their opponents and therefore should show restraint.

    How do we know that Hamas would kill more if they could?

    Because they have a long history of suicide bombing attacks inside Israel that resulted in scores of dead Israelis – mostly young people in nightclubs and people on public transport – and always with the goal of inflicting as much death as possible.

    There’s a reason why Israel built the Israel-Gaza Strip and Israel-West Bank barriers.

    On the idiotic issue of proportionality for Israel to be truly proportionate they would need to:

    * Fire thousands of randomly targeted rockets into Gaza
    * Send in suicide bombers to blow up as many Gazans as they can
    * Use women and children as human shields against incoming rockets
    * Fire their weapons from schools and hospitals
    * Store ammunition in people’s houses
    * Use ambulances to transport troops
    * Employ a bunch of people to stage photos and fake videos for the world’s press
    * Talk about a two state solution while doing everything they can to avoid ever having to implement one
    * Siphon off hundreds of millions of dollars in donor aid to private bank accounts
    * Spend the rest on weapons

    Hamas, and their soulmates on the left in the West, truly are pieces of human excrement.

    Let’s hope that Israel has the determination to flush them into the sea.

    Suicide by Israel
    By Spengler

    A policeman’s nightmare is the prospective suicide who forces the constable to shoot in self-defense. No matter how justified the killing, others always will wonder whether the shooter had an opportunity to avoid a fatal outcome.

    Peoples commit suicide as much as do individuals. The geopolitical cognate of “suicide by policeman” is Hamas’ attempted suicide by Israel. Israel’s objective is to eliminate Hamas rule. There are only two ways to do that: destroy Hamas’ international support, or make its rule in Gaza insupportable.

    I hate to be the one to bring up the unpleasant things that no one else wants to talk about, but just what do you do when a substantial group of people would rather die on their feet than live on their knees?

    HAMAS…. they wanna create tension to pocket more money lol! Simple as ABC!

  22. unkl Says:

    Gaza is a diverson by Iran to divert attention away from nuke program and HamAss is the iran ally in this in not renewing the hudna. All Iran need is a little more time then they they will have the nukes to kill every jew and hamas can go in and take over israel. Malaysian hypocrites supporting hamass are part of the gameplan.

  23. unkl Says:

    oops, hamass is a puppet of Iran not ally.

    This has got Egypt worried which condemned hamass, and in return Iran placed US1M bounty on Hosny Mubarak.
    So if some PAS/UMNO/Mullah KTemoc want money – go finish off Hosny Mubarak. Iran will pay you.

    @halfbreed:

    The so-called “neighbor” technique is not only problematic. It is against the law, both Israeli and International. It fact, one can even argue that it is very cowardly. The IDF human shields technique is meant to save lives, that is, IDF soldiers’ lives. Do you think they even give a rat’s ass about the lives of the Palestinian human shields that they were using as unwilling cannon fodders?

    I agree with you the human shields technique employed by some Palestinians and the IDF are not morally equivalent. On one hand, most Palestinian human shields VOLUNTARILY put their lives at risk, daring the IDF to attack the homes, ammunition sites and possibly militants that they are “protecting”. On the other hand, you have the IDF soldiers forcing Palestinians to be human shields, risking the lives of those Palestinians. You tell me which one is morally wrong between the two.

    By forcing Palestinians to stay in their homes, which in effect is holding them hostage, after taking over them as sniper positions or bases, IDF soldiers are endangering the lives of their Palestinian hostages by putting them in direct line of fire. Should this be the work of the so-called “moral” army?

    If anyone tries to associate IDF with the word moral once more, i am going to bitch-slap the hell out of him.

    Christian convert son of West Bank Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yousef, who told Ha’aretz:

    ‘You Jews should be aware: You will never, but never have peace with Hamas. Islam, as the ideology that guides them, will not allow them to achieve a peace agreement with the Jews. They believe that tradition says that the Prophet Mohammed fought against the Jews and that therefore they must continue to fight them to the death.’ Is that the justification for the suicide attacks? lsquo;More than that. An entire society sanctifies death and the suicide terrorists. In Palestinian culture a suicide terrorist becomes a hero, a martyr. Sheikhs tell their students about the “heroism of the shaheeds.”‘

    @ Scott Thong:

    Including the video I have above of Hamas fighters dragging boys along by the scruff of their shirt collars towards the fighting? – Scott Thong

    Remember, i wrote “some” not “all” Palestinian human shields voluntarily put their lives at risk.

    Are some Hamas militants guilty of forcing Palestinians to be human shields? Sure, as evident by your video. But can one video be a representation of what is actually happening in Gaza?

  35. Scott Thong Says:

    You said ‘most’.

    What evidence do you submit to back up your argument that ‘most’ or even ‘some’ Palestinians voluntarily invite Israel to blow them up?

    I argue that ‘most’ of Gaza’s Palestinians DO NOT voluntarily want to get killed protecting Hamas, and in fact, do not even want this Hamas-initiated war in the first place.

    As evidence, I submit the following:

    Poll: 60 percent Gazans say Hamas wrong to end ceasefire

    Ramallah – Ma’an – Most Palestinians in the war-torn Gaza Strip think Hamas should have never ended the ceasefire with Israel, according to a recent survey.

    Near East Consulting surveyed Palestinian residents of the Gaza Strip in late December, where results found that a full 60 percent of Palestinians there believe Hamas made a mistake by not seeking to renew the ceasefire with Israel.

    That conjectures a nearly two-thirds majority who DO NOT support Hamas’ war, and thus would not voluntarily help Hamas at the risk of their own lives.

    Therefore, it is by definition impossible for ‘most’ Palestinians to voluntarily act as human shields for Hamas (in Gaza, where there is actually a conflict for humans to act as shields in).

  36. ktula Says:

    On reviewing the video footage in question, which you claimed “Hamas deliberately using children as human shields, grabbing them forcefully and dragging them along”, it looked more to me like the militants grabbing the kids to safety, instead of forcing them to be human shields. Notice the second militant grabbed the child, who appeared to be in the middle of a street, to a group of teenagers taking cover behind an ambulance.

    Is Hamas guilty of firing rockets into Israel near areas populated by civilians? Most likely. But this video does not conclusively show them forcing Gaza civilians to be human shields.

    The Robert Land Academy is located in the Niagara Peninsula south of Toronto. The headmaster of the school was an officer in the Royal Canadian Army, Colonel Scott Bowman. “He was a Canadian intelligence officer who had done a yearlong stint in Israel, working with an international peacekeeping delegation around the time of the Yom Kippur War in the 1970’s. During classes Colonel Bowman would talk about the Israeli Military. He told us that the Israelis were-bar-none-the most elite, cutting-edge military in the world.” Aaron became mesmerized by Colonel Bowman espousing over and over that the Israelis were the toughest, smartest, soldiers, and it was the greatest privilege of his military life to work with them. He admired their capabilities as soldiers, their values, and the totality of the commitment to self-defense that the State Of Israel represented.” Every waking hour Aaron spent in the library reading and studying everything available on the Israeli Military. When he was eighteen-years-old he decided to enlist in the Israeli Army, and when he went to Israel he set even higher goals. He wanted to be in the Israeli Special Forces, and he proceeds to lead the reader through the grueling, mind and body numbing training, that he had to “survive” in order to fulfill his dream. The unit he is selected for is the one that sends operatives disguised as Arabs into the Palestinian-controlled West Bank. The reader is “the-fly-on-the-wall” (up to the point of being limited by classified information) as Aaron and his team take down the number three guy in Hamas, a money guy, a fund raiser, with Aaron undercover as a reporter interviewing the target. On another occasion the reader is taken along as they go after “the father of the Holy War”, the Hamas mastermind behind the Dizengoff Mall bombing that killed innocent Israeli civilians. Aaron was undercover as a Palestinian selling sweet-corn from a push cart, as the Israeli’s infiltrated a wedding, and nabbed their man in sixty seconds. Throughout this fast-paced story Aaron points out the differences between Israel’s counter-terrorism strategies as compared to the United States. One of the great quotes referred to throughout the book is from a defining speech by one of the greatest military hero’s in Israel’s history *MOSHE DAYAN* who said back in 1955:

    “WE CANNOT PROTECT EVERY WATER PIPE FROM BEING BLOWN UP, NOR EVERY TREE FROM BEING UPROOTED. NOR CAN WE PREVENT THE MURDER OF THE WORKERS IN THE ORCHARDS, NOR OF FAMILIES IN THEIR BEDS, BUT WE CAN EXACT A HIGH PRICE FOR OUR BLOOD, A PRICE TOO HIGH FOR THE ARAB COMMUNITY, THE ARAB ARMY, THE ARAB GOVERNMENTS TO PAY.”

    Hi Scott,

    I’m so glad for having bumped into your sensational but gutty blog that highlights the news of ‘The Other Side Of Perceived Truth’. Thanks to Lucia of Mental Jog. This, from now will make me stay awake a bit more longer with an extra cup of white coffee every night. Keep this up, Thanks.

    Never so or read so much garbage in my life.

    It seems to be OK for Israel to bomb schools and hospitals and safe centres where THEY know perfectly well there are children but that is OK…cause palestinian children are just garbage to be destroyed.
    The picture I saw showed the man pulling the child to safety.

    Israel and the United States are the biggest, bloodiest liars on the face of the earth.

  40. hutchrun Says:

    “Never so or read so much garbage in my life.”

    Is that so. When you have lived in garbage all your life you wouldn`t know how to spot the difference. Everything would be garbage to you. You are the perfect garbage idiot.
    A despicable character who for 8 years did nothing to stop the hamas terrorists from terrorising Israelis. and now you come wheedling, whining here with your self love and jew hatred.
    One can only hope that an islamist would slit your throat and throw you back into your garbage pit. Then we see your family dance around your dearly departed. Progressive/leftist scum.

    In the Bhagvad Gita it is also there – “What Is more welcome to a warrior than a righteous war”. The Hindus were wiped out in Northern India on account of overt pacifism, ditto Buddhism. The Dalai Lama`s recent comment is pertinent: Non-violence can’t tackle terror: Dalai .

    I have recently become more inclined to accept that Bible followers should also learn the OT in Hebrew so they understand better and do not run off with the “turn the other cheek” to absurd levels of pacifism.

    The problem is that Hamas knows that there are children there too… And intentionally sets up fire bases and weapons caches there.

    Did you know that Israeli weapons NEVER kill children in UN schools that Hamas hide in? It’s actually the Hamas ammo stockpiles that explode and kill Palestinian children. (sarcasm, but illustrates my point that Hamas = hypocritical b*stards)
