Thankful Shiloh isn't Surrounded by Forests and Parks

The other morning, while riding to work in Kochav Hashachar, which is southeast of Shiloh, I took a good look at the view, at the land and lack of trees once we passed the small groves of olive trees and some vineyards just past Shvut Rachel.

on the way to Kochav Hashachar

entrance of Kochav Hashachar

Just outside of Shiloh



As you can see from the photos, it's the barrenness surrounding Shiloh and the communities to the east that saved us from the aishtafada.

If you remember, a few months ago, there was a fire started to the west of Shiloh which burnt down some olive trees. But since it wasn't near enough to any yishuv, nobody was in any real danger.

Gd willing, the rain will keep us all safe for awhile, and our government will wisen up and start executing Arab terrorists without trials. But that's another post...

Dumb Question: Voter Identity in USA, Easy to Cheat?

As you may know, I've never voted in American Elections. We made aliyah a couple of months before my first possibility. In those days, voting age was twenty-one 21. I turned the age in May, got on the boat late August, and Elections were in November. It never even crossed my mind to apply for an Absentee Ballot. And over the almost half a century since then, I've gotten no further than mulling over the issue.

Here in Israel voting is very organized and it's pretty hard to cheat, other than those who arrive with an Identity Card of a similar looking dead person who hasn't been registered as dead, or the same sort of thing with someone hospitalized. As long as nobody in the polling station staff realizes it or "squeals," it can be done.

wikimedia.org
Yes, in Israel we have Identity Cards, with pictures. Some of us have very old ones, which can be problematic, since we don't look much like the photos. That's why there's usually a lot of pressure on the staff in the Ministry of the Interior to produce new cards for many in the weeks before an election. 

In Shiloh and other small communities, there's pretty much always a neighbor on the "staff" who can easily vouch. Also, we're all sent notices telling us exactly where we are supposed to vote. And we must vote there. If there was a mistake by the clerk in the Ministry of Interior, which happens --such as sending someone to Shilat, rather than Shiloh-- one can get free public transportation.

There's no "absentee ballot/voting" in Israel. The closest is the voting by soldiers, diplomats stationed abroad, etc. And those ballots are in multiple envelopes to preserve secrecy. On the outer envelope is the name and ID number of the voter. After polling station votes are counted, then those envelopes are checked to see if that ID number had voted in person. If so, the envelope is voided, ripped, destroyed whatever.

Now, in the United States, there aren't required Identity Cards, and from what I've read, there is no longer an assigned place to vote. So how does it work? Besides just trusting people...

Aishtafada: Israel on Receiving End of Help/Aid

When my sons were teens they both volunteered in the local fire station, which in Hebrew is called כיבוי חילוץ Kibu'i Chilutz, Fire-Put-Out and Rescue. It's call that, because until pretty recently in Israel most homes are traditionally made of bricks and cement, so homes rarely burnt down. There could be relatively small electric fires in a home, but not the sort of scenes we've seen this past week during the aishtafada, when houses literally went up in smoke, since it has been getting more and more popular to build quickly with prefabricated materials, which also insulate better.

Periodically, late summer, early winter before the rains, there would be forest or park fires, but until the Arab terrorists began this new genre of terrorism, purposely setting fires by cities and villages, they never had to deal with such a phenomenon as a neighborhood going up in smoke and flames.

The fire departments here in Israel used to spend most of its time doing "rescue" jobs, like cutting through cars, trucks and buses which had turned over in accidents to rescue drivers and passengers.

This aishtafada, when Arab terrorists simultaneously lit fires in multiple locations, stressed and stretched the Israeli and IDF fire/rescue abilities beyond their capabilities. One of the miracles we've seen is that other countries came to our aid. Granted, from what I understand Israel had to pay for some of this assistance like the American which was from a private contractor, but the coordination of all of these different anti-fire services has been stupendous and miraculous.

At the same time, troops on the ground managed to arrest some of the aishtafada terrorists, 37 suspected arsonists arrested, including 18 Israeli Arabs. No doubt that this isn't the end of the story, and they'll try again. Terror knows no boundaries... This is further proof that the Arabs, who are being called "Palestinians," sic, are not a nation/people deserving a state; they are psycho/sociopaths who should be banned and banished.

GUEST POST: Joshua chapter 13 verse 1

GUEST POST by Mr. Cohen:

Joshua, chapter 13, verse 1

In the Biblical Book of Joshua, chapter 13, verse 1, G_d rebuked the prophet Joshua for failing to conquer the entire Land of Israel for the nation of Israel. 
In the next five (5) verses, G_d tells Joshua exactly which pieces of land remain to be conquered.

Every word and every sentence of the Biblical Book of Joshua has been part of the Jewish faith for 33 centuries, and will continue to be a permanent part of the Jewish faith forever.

The Babylonian Talmud, tractate Megillah, page 14A, explains that only prophecies that were needed for future generations were recorded in the Bible. Since Joshua chapter 13 was recorded in the Bible, all generations of Jews must learn from it.

Furthermore, the Biblical Book of Ezekiel teaches that the messiah will increase the size of the land of Israel by conquering more lands. Ancient Rabbis taught that in the era of the messiah, the land of Israel will include both sides of the Jordan River. This is not something that we must do in our times, but it will eventually happen in the era of the messiah.

The concept of giving away the land-of-Israel in exchange for peace with Gentiles is NEVER mentioned in: the Bible, the Jerusalem Talmud, the Babylonian Talmud, the writings of Maimonides, the Code of Jewish Law and its commentaries, or any ancient Jewish book, because it is a gross violation of the Jewish faith.

If giving away land in exchange for peace is such a great idea,
then why don't the Arabs nations give away THEIR lands for peace?


Considering that the Arabs have more than 300 times more land
than Israel, they certainly have more to work with.

Fire on My Mind

The aishtafada has wiped out, or burnt up, the rest of my thoughts right now. Imagine a family relaxing on Shabbat, removed from all the weekday concerns, television off, cellphone off and suddenly they are roused from their relaxation, sleep, peaceful pursuits and told to grab themselves and flee their homes. Yes, on Shabbat, when they are only permitted to travel to save their lives.

Yes, this was to save their lives! They had to leave their homes, the entire community!! The Arab terrorists who value neither life, Land or property lit fires around Neve Tzuf, a Jewish town southwest of Shiloh.

The neighborhood is gone, burnt by Arab terrorists!!

Eighteen of those families now have absolutely no home. Their homes were burnt to a crisp and can't be repaired. Their possessions are gone, history. They were hosted by neighboring communities, including an impromptu Bar Mitzvah, which obviously could not take place where planned.

Many groups are doing fundraising for them do doubt. Click here for one of them.


Last night I turned on Israeli TV stations to try to get more information about the fire, news, aishtafada, but they all had their scheduled shows on. When the fires had been burning in the Haifa area, there were special broadcasts, but when there were Jewish communities in Samaria/Binyamin burning, nothing. There's more news on Facebook than anyplace else, though some is fake. But there are plenty of lies in The New York Times, too.

The "Aishtafada" Arab Arson Terror Continues

As further proof that the Arabs hate this Land and are only demanding a state to kick out Jews and form another judenrein apartheid state, they've been intentionally burning up Jewish communities all over Israel.



The Arab terrorists are getting bolder and bolder, which is making it easier to catch them in the act, but the only thing that can stop the fires would be rain, lots of rain. And only Gd can give us that.

This is all so horrible. I've been looking at the weather forecast. Just after Shabbat it showed no sign of rain until maybe Wednesday night. Now there may be a drizzle on Tuesday. Here in the Holy Land, rain is controlled by Gd to reward and/or punish us. May we merit rain and as soon as possible, Gd willing.

Latest News: Fires are New Arab Terror Tool

At first it seemed like the fires that had begun all over Israel were just more of the periodic late summer, pre-rain fires that are almost spontaneous in climates like Israel. A month ago, after a very long dry summer, there was a bit of rain, but since then the humidity has been summer-like low, so the first fires were considered "expected."

But then the experts began to notice that the spread of new fires wasn't of "natural causes" or patterns, and on the spot investigations showed them to have been set by Arab terrorists, some who have already been caught.

Stand With Us put out a map:

Terrible fires raging in Israel that have now been confirmed by the spokesman of the fire department Yoram Levi as arson attacks. The perpetrators of these crimes have endangered thousands and caused immense damage to people's homes, lives, and of course the environment. We strongly condemn them. Praying for a swift end to the fires and the safety of all those affected.

These fires, like the peculiar lunar calendar of the Moslems, is further proof that they neither own nor love the Land. How can they destroy the flora, fauna and homes here in the Holy Land? They celebrate terror and murder, and this is just another terrorist tool for them.

The ray of true light during this terrible time is that Israel is being helped by other countries, which is so rare:
Countries send aid to fight fires across Israel
Countries that have dispatched aid so far are Greece, Italy, Croatia, Russia, Cyprus, and Turkey. The aid amounts to 10 planes. (Arutz 7)
May Gd speedily send rain to douse the flames.
Shabbat Shalom u'Mevorach
May there be a Peaceful and Blessed Shabbat for All

Davka in "Red" Haifa...

Haifa was always known as the "red city," but they weren't talking about flames and anti-fire chemicals.

Haifa:
As an industrial port city, Haifa has traditionally been a Labor party stronghold. The strong presence of dock workers and trade unions earned it the nickname 'Red Haifa.' In addition, many prominent Arabs in the Israeli Communist Party, among them Tawfik ToubiEmile HabibiZahi KarkabiBulus Farah and Emile Toma, were from Haifa.

More has come out about the terror source of these fires. Yes, it's the new Arab terrorism, and davka, now there are Arabs condemning it and also hosting families, Jews and Arabs alike who've been forced out of their homes.
