Today, the state of Israel honors the memory of its fallen, our soldiers and our people who fell in Israel’s wars and in the terrorist attacks.
From the moment the state was established, it has not ceased to wish for peace with its neighbors, and to the same degree, its enemies have not ceased from their aspiration to wipe it off the face of the earth
We are here thanks to Israel’s fighters who joined the struggle for our existence, thanks to those who survived the wars and thanks to those who fell. We do not forget, even for a second, that we are here thanks to the fallen
Today, while the accumulated threats against the State of Israel are greater than in the past, both the IDF and our security services are stronger than ever. We will continue to strengthen our security, we will continue to aspire for peace with our neighbors, and we will continue to ensure the future of our country. Thank you
- Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Another piece I put together for my friend’s birthday. I just did the editing.
Rocks can kill. But when was the last time anyone was killed by a Palestinian stone thrower? Has anyone been killed? How many?
Now compare that to the number of civilians killed in Operation Cast Lead. Or the number of civilians killed by even rubber bullets fired from IDF guns, let alone “deadly” bullets.
What should we be focusing on?
Yes, people have been killed in the past. I don’t know how many, but fatalities have occurred.
OCL did result in the deaths of many, however what you need to remember is that most killed were militants; and out of the civilians killed, most were as a result of human shielding.
Asher Palmer (25 yo) and his son Yonatan (1 yo) were killed last year when a rock was thrown at Asher’s car as he was driving near Hebron.

For the record, I don’t agree with the message that this cartoon is displaying. Nevertheless
יהורם גאון - בלדה לחובש
Ballad for the Medic
English subtitles included in the video
This a moving, emotional song that is truly emblematic of the IDF and Israeli soldiers. I rarely react with strong emotions to music - but, this song, made my eyes tear up.
So…my mum received an email with this photo
UNSETTLED - Documentary about the Gaza Disengagement
“This Tisha B’Av, as hundreds of thousands of Jews around the world mourn the tragedies that have befallen them throughout history, we are reminded of the heart wrenching episode the State of Israel underwent seven years ago - the disengagement from Gaza. The 90 minute film, UNSETTLED, offers a personal behind-the-scenes look, both before and during the evacuation, at the people whose lives would forever be impacted by the events which unfolded during those difficult weeks. With the ramifications of the disengagement from Gaza still very evident today, this emotional documentary film takes you back to experience the event from the perspective of both the settler and the soldier.
