That old Pesach story. The angels are rejoicing because the Egyptians have just drowned in the Red Sea.
And God said to the angels, “Why are you rejoicing? I just killed a multitude of my children.”
The angels respond to God. They say, “God, we are celebrating because when the people hear what happened to The Egyptians, they’ll understand your point.”
“Don’t f*ck with the Jews.”
– Quote from the film Munich
The State of Israel is living testimony of the resilience, skill and stubborn refusal to die of the Jewish people. Israel’s armed forces regularly kick the collective, teamed-up butts of far greater enemy forces. (And this is not even counting the awesome wins of the Jews that are recorded in the Bible!)
Now, you might object that Israel is a war-mongering, apartheid, Nazi, racist, imperialist, Zionist oppressor state that bullies and murders defenceless Palestinians and Lebanese.
But this post is not about whether or not Israel is justified in making innocent terrorist murderers cry at night. This post is about how Israel kicks butt.
So come and take a brief tour of how pwned Israel’s self-designated enemies are…
1948 Israel’s War of Independence (or in Arabic: al Nakba, i.e. the Catastrophe)
In 1948, the U.N. agrees to give Israel and Palestine their own states. Seven Arab nations and a specially-formed anti-Israel force responded by immediately declaring war on and attacking Israel.
Despite a lacking air force, no tanks and a hastily organized, equipped and trained army, Israel’s 29,677 non-professional soldiers completely kicked the butts of 54,000 well-equipped enemy troops, armour and planes. Including in the air against superior Spitfires.
The result was a doubling of Israel’s territory under the rules of ‘whoever wins the war gets the land’. The aftermath that lasts till today is the Arabs whining about Israel’s ‘aggression’ and ‘occupation’ of those lands.
But we all know what those might-makes-right mobbers are really sore about is being such weak loser pussycats to the supposed-to-be-cursed-by-Allah Jews.

Via Legal Insurrection:
But in what can only be described as one of the greatest fake-outs in military history, a Jewish American pilot and his buddies flew four “junk airplanes” for a country that had no actual air force, managing to convince the Egyptians, encamped only 30 miles south of Tel Aviv, that there was enough “competition in the sky” to warrant aborting their advance.

1966 Mossad steals a Soviet MiG from under Iraq’s nose
The omniscient Mossad arranged things so well all the way over in Iraq, that Iraqi fighter pilot and his entire family were safely smuggled to safety in Israel – along with the Soviet-made MiG plane with all its extremely valuable, juicy Cold War tech.
The understanding of the MiG’s capabilities would come into excellent use during the Six Day War, where the Israeli Air Force shot down six Syrian MiG’s with no Israeli plane losses.
1967 Six Day War (or in Arabic: al Naksah, i.e. the Setback)
Egypt, itching for revenge, kicks the U.N. peacekeeping force off the Egypt-Israel border, amasses 1,000 tanks and 1,000,000 soldiers there, and closes the Straits of Tiran to Israeli shipping. Meanwhile, Syria is shelling Israel from the Golan heights. See here for more, including on the aforementioned six MiGs downed.
Egypt invites Syria, Jordan, Lebanon and Iraq to join in the soon-to-be pushing of the Jews into the sea, when Israel lays the smackdown on Egypt – beginning by launching an aerial assault that decimates almost 100% of Egypt’s air force, followed by Syria’s.
Israel’s 264,000 ground troops (of which only 50,000 were full time soldiers) and 800 tanks didn’t slack either, joining the 300 planes in trouncing 547,000 Arab troops along with their 2504 tanks and 957 planes.
The result was Israel finally regaining access to their Holy City of Jerusalem (which is mentioned by its specific name 154 times in the Bible but exactly ZERO times in the Quran), as well as the Gaza Strip, Sinai and West Bank.
It was also in this war that future Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon would make his mark as a military leader, routing and flanking the far larger Egyptian armoured divisions.
1973 Yom Kippur War (aka Ramadan War)
The sneaky and religiously disrespectful Egyptians launch a sneak attack on Israel right on the Jewish holy day of Yom Kippur. Proving their religious hypocrisy, the date of the attack also falls during Ramadan, the Muslim month of holy fasting, prayer and abstaining from sins.
While the Arabs took this war to be a restoration of their multiply-trounced honour, with Egypt’s Anwar Sadat even signing a peace treaty with Israel (an act that would get him assassinated by Egyptians), the reality is as follows:
Israel’s unprepared (i.e. on holiday for Yom Kippur) 415,000 troops, 1500 tanks, 3000 armored carriers, 945 artillery units, 561 planes and 84 helicopters pushed back Egypt, Syria and Iraq’s 1,010,000 troops, 4500 tanks, 3800 armored carriers, 1920 artillery units, 1113 planes and 197 helicopters.
Israel lost 2996 men, 400 tanks and 102 planes. The Arab forces lost at the very least 8528 men, 2250 tanks and 432 planes. And Egypt calls that a victorious vindication?!!
In the air, the Ofira Air Battle saw 20 Egyptian Air Force MiG-17s and their 8 MiG-21 escorts conduct a surprise raid and encounter just 2 (TWO!!!) Israeli Phantoms… Who proceeded to shoot down 7 of them for no losses!
And 3 weeks before the Yom Kippur War, Israel had 12 Phantoms attacked by 16 Syrian MiG 21s who opened fire first – Israel lost 1, Syria lost 9. Syria then sent another 4, which were all shot down. All in all 1 for 13.
As a prelude to this war, see also Operation Rimon 2.0 where Israeli fighter pilots took on 24 MiGs and downed 5 of them, for no losses.
Despite Israel’s slowness to respond to the aggression, it lost no territory at all and instead managed to trap Egypt’s Third Army group just before the U.N. ceasefire took effect!
1972 Operation Wrath of God and 1973 Operation Spring of Youth
These two operations were a response to the cowardly 1972 Munich massacre, where eleven Israeli athletes and coaches and one German policeman were murdered by the Yasser Arafat-linked group Black September (in no small part due to the bungling of the German rescue squad), as dramatized in the Steven Spielberg film Munich.
Wrath of God saw Israeli Mossad agents track down across the world and terminate at least 9 of those responsible for plotting and carrying out the Munich massacre.
Spring of Youth saw the same Mossad team and IDF special forces sneak into Lebanon and kill three heavily guarded culprits, with some unfortunate non-affiliated casualties. Ehud Barak took part in the raid disguised as a brunette woman lol!
1976 Operation Entebbe
Air France flight 139 coming from Athens, Greece was hijacked by two Palestinians affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLFP) and two Germans from German ‘Revolutionary Cells’ (RZ).
It was flown to Entebbe, Uganda, where they were joined by three additional terrorists and were supported by the army forces of Uganda’s pro-Palestinian President, Idi Amin. They demanded the release of 40 Palestinians held in Israel and 13 other detainees elsewhere, or they would start killing the hostages of various nationalities.
Negotiations went on for a week, until suddenly Israeli forces burst into the airport terminal with total surprise and killed all seven hijackers, as well as 45 Ugandan soldiers when the latter opened fire while the hostages were being evacuated.
The rescue and smite-the-unrighteous-foo’s operation went so smoothly in part because of the training the elite Israeli commandos underwent at a highly accurate mock-up of the airport terminal. It turns out that the Jew-haters in Uganda had relied on an Israeli construction firm to build their airport!
The clear message sent: If the crocodile comes looking for appeasement, we’ll feed him a live hand grenade.
1981 Operation Opera
Iraq had been building a nuclear reactor at Osirak which could potentially be used to produce nuclear weapons, or at least radioactive dirty bombs.
Combined with Saddam Hussein’s megalomania (remember, this guy conducted mass killings using poison gas and subscribed to ‘push the Jews into the sea’), this was officially Not A Good Thing.
After exhausting the diplomatic niceties option, Israel launched a surprise air raid and smashed the nuclear reactor, secretly flying 3200 km both ways over Jordanian and Saudi territory.
No one bothered to thank the Israelis for their preemptive anti-nukes foresight when Saddam later invaded Kuwait to start the Gulf War.
1982 Bekaa Valley Turkey Shoot
The Bekaa Valley air battle saw the Israel Air Force destroy 19 Syrian Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) batteries and 116 Syrian fighter planes… For NO LOSSES.
2007 Operation Orchard
In a similar move, Israeli air forces penetrated Syria’s considerable and state of the art air detection and defense systems to strike a target in Syrian territory.
Circumstantial evidence such as the Syrians’ quick clean up of the entire site, the complex’s similarities with North Korean nuclear reactor design, and nuclear techonology dealings between Syria and North Korea speaks volumes about what was actually housed at that site.
A recent report in April 2008 reveals that the reactor was nearing completion when the IAF blew it to smithereens.
Sattelite imagery of site’s clean-up from New York Times
And how does Syria explain away the traces of uranium the UN Inspectors found at the site? Blame the Jews.
Syria’s foreign minister suggested on Wednesday that Israel Air Force bombs may have been the source of uranium traces diplomats from the United Nations nuclear agency said were found a suspected nuclear site in Syria.
This article purportedly explains how Israel found out about the reactor and even assassinated the top official responsible deep within Syria itself.
That’s twice the Zionists have cut short the nuclear ambitions of nations sworn to Israel’s destruction. Anyone wanna bet Iran (with air defences considered far inferior to Syria’s) won’t suffer the same treatment if it keeps up with its Islamic Bomb to Wipe Israel Off the Map program?
Assassinations that put a stop to enemy weapon programs
Including Egypt’s rockets and Iraq’s supergun, and perhaps Iran’s nukes.
When the Zionists are this omnipotent, no wonder the world’s enemies of the Jews believe them capable of the following:
So remember that time-honoured, very important lesson…
Don’t. Ever. F*ck with. The Jews.
The result from that? Tipped by hutchrun, on Israel’s 63rd anniversary:
Israel has the highest average living standards in the Middle East. The per capita income in 2000 was over $17,500, exceeding that of the UK.
Israel’s $100 billion economy is larger than all of its immediate neighbors combined.
Israel has the third highest rate of entrepreneurship – and the highest rate among women and among people over 55 – in the world.
