Declaration of War

[David Wilder, The Jewish Community of Hebron]

Summary ... Today, July 13, 2005, 6 Tammuz, 5765 — a date which will live in infamy — the people of Israel were suddenly and deliberately attacked and paralyzed by ground forces of the IDF, at the direction of the Prime Minister and the government of the State of Israel.

The people were at peace with the Israel Defense Forces, and, at the solicitation of authorities, were still in conversation with the government and its Prime Minister, looking toward the maintenance of peace in Israel. Indeed, at the time of the attack and paralysis, the executive director of the Defense Ministry was present at Kfar Darom. Despite signs that it seemed useless to continue the existing negotiations, it was hoped to prevent the attack and paralysis.

It will be recorded that the present actions make it obvious that the attack and paralysis were deliberately planned many days or even weeks ago. During the intervening time the government has deliberately sought to deceive the people by false statements and expressions of hope for continued peace.

The attack and paralysis today of Gush Katif and the northern Shomron has caused severe damage to the State of Israel, Eretz Yisrael, and the Jewish people. Already, very many Israeli lives have been lost defending these communities, and will (G-d forbid) inevitably be lost in the future, due to continued acquiescence.

  • Today the Israeli government launched an attack against Homesh.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Sa Nour.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Kadim.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Ganim.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Neve Dekelim.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Kfar Darom.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Shirat HaYam.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Morag.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Dugit.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Ganei Tal.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Netzer Hazani.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Katif.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Ali Sinai.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Badolach.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Azmona.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Gadid.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Gan Or.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Kerem Atzmona.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Nisanit.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Peat HaSade.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Rafiach Yam.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Tel Katifa.
  • Today the Israeli government also launched an attack against Shalev.

The government and the IDF have, therefore, undertaken a major offensive extending throughout Eretz Yisrael. The facts of the day speak for themselves. The people of Israel have already formed their opinions and well understand the implication to the very life and safety of our nation.

As loyal citizens of our land and our people we have directed that all measures be taken for our defense. Always will we remember the character of the onslaught against us.

The 'Palestinian' News You Don't See

The tragedy of the pro-'Palestinian' movement is its attachment to a single narrative: "Look at how wretched the lives of the 'Palestinian' people are," they tell us, "It is because of Israeli oppression." Because this narrative must be constantly reinforced, there is little room for real reporting about the failures of the 'Palestinian' leadership and the corruption and infighting that have caused the 'West Bank' [i.e., Judea & Samaria] and Gaza to languish.

The "Spontaneous" Intifada Is Orchestrated by the Palestinian Leadership

The Arab leadership is attempting to portray the current Intifada as a kind of popular, spontaneous struggle that expresses the population's despair over the political situation. In reality, it is an Intifada supported and directed by the Arab leadership of the PA/PLO-Fatah and Hamas.

Uncomfortable Questions for Comfortable Jews: The Temple Mount

Rabbi Meir Kahane points out that, contrary to popular belief, the Temple Mount is in Arab hands, the cunning Arab foxes. And the words of Motta Gur ring hollowly — and it is the Jews who are to blame. They took a miracle and disdained it. They, who took holiness and profaned it. They who were given a Zion, a Jerusalem, Temple Mount — gave it over to the jackal-foxes.

The Real Goal of the 'Palestinian' Intifada

PA/PLO leader Abbas seems intentionally to ignore that he and his PA/PLO are responsible for the violence, as a result of their daily incitement against Israel. A recent poll found that approximately half of 'Palestinians' believe the "Intifada" should lead to the destruction of Israel.

The Hidden Hand Behind the Palestinian Terror Wave

What is really going on behind the scenes of the current terrorist attacks? It's actually a lot more than what is seen on a daily basis. Hamas is fighting to take control of the PA/PLO while Fatah is doing its best to stay in power and get Gaza back under its control.

Obama Declares War on Israel

Obama needs to wake up. The real enemy is not Netanyahu. The real enemy is Iran, Hizb'Allah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and Islamic State, and the establishment of a terrorist state in the midst of Israel.

Could Barak Obama Swing the Upcoming Israeli Election?

It's no state secret that US President Barack Obama is not a huge fan of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. His distain for the Jewish leader is well-known throughout the world; he's never tried to hide it. But now that Israel is having new elections in March does it mean Obama could, either directly or indirectly, influence the elections in Israel in order to obtain a defeat for Netanyahu?
