Israel speeds up third Iron Dome battery in wake of Gaza attacks
JUST NUKE GAZA!
April 13, 2011
Additional anti-missile system would be ready in 6 months
recent rocket, mortar volleys also prompt Netanyahu to OK shelters for Ashkelon educational institutions.
The Israel Defense Forces announced Tuesday it would accelerate the introduction of a third Iron Dome anti-rocket battery, following weeks of intensified conflicts along Israel's border with the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
The IDF's announcement came on Sunday after the cabinet, led by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, discussed ways to speed up the process of protecting Negev communities from Gaza rocket fire.
4 more batteries of the Iron Dome missile defense system.
The U.S. Congress recently approved over $200 million in funding for Iron Dome, but Netanyahu said Israel would allocate the budget immediately rather than waiting for the American funds to come through.
IDF officials indicated that the security establishment intended on taking a series of steps geared at ensuring that the third Iron Dome battery would become available in six months,
instead of the expected 18-month waiting period.
Hamas continues launching missiles
April 16, 2011 Saturday
Friday, April 15 two Grad missiles exploded in Ashdod and Ashkelon. Anyone who believes a Hamas ceasefire is a FOOL.
Hamas has realized that Iron Dome is not enough to shield Israelis from their missiles.
With a large anti-Israel terror jihad flotilla due in May, Hamas needs to drum up drama.
Developments in Egypt affect Israel security
April 30, 2011
Egypt warns Israel NOT to interfere with opening of Gaza border crossing. Rafah opening is a violation of an agreement reached in 2005 between the U.S., Israel, Egypt, and the EU.
Chief of Staff of the Egyptian Army General Sami Anan warned Israel against interfering with Egypt plan to open the Rafah border crossing with Gaza permanently, saying it was not a matter of Israel's concern.
Only the Finger of GOD has prevented this war so far!
ISRAEL has gone on HIGH ALERT
I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and
My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations -
and they have divided up My land!

Israel has a history with al Qaeda, whose cells based in Gaza carried out many of the armed attacks on Israel.
Since I believe al qaeda is CIA and phony, read this report yourself. Its not worth my space.

As they move on the Syrian sector of Golan they would be easily visible from the villages and towns of the Israeli sector.
Syrian violence is about to occur very close to the Israeli border. The IDF is making preparations to keep it sealed.
Other large groups were turned away by Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon are now heading for the Israel border in search of temporary shelter.

Easy breach of Israel-Golan-Syria border
Not enough Israeli troops guarded Syrian border fence
Israel files complaint against Syria, Lebanon with UN. Thats a joke.
On Sunday, May 15, Israel's enemies breached 3 of its borders which caught its government napping.
Their reaction to the massive violation of its Syrian, Lebanese and Gaza borders showed Israel is NOT as ready as they thought they were for a multi-front war.
I'd say God showed them a huge hole in their planning.
This weakness was noted in Tehran, Damascus, Beirut and Ramallah, may lead to the next Syrian step to recover the Golan.
A year ago, Israel missed the jihad ships from Turkey
( http://cj.myfreeforum.org/about657.html )
Israeli commandos who boarded the ship were unprepared for violence which met them. (I knew! Why didnt they?)
Israel did not learn from this incident, and Syria, Hellzballah, Hamas and Turkey did, and are preparing a second flotilla.
The violent events of Nakba (Catastrophe) Day Sunday marking the founding of Israeli in 1948, first tested the water in the morning.
An Israeli Arab drove his truck through Tel Aviv at high speed, slamming into vehicles and pedestrians and killed one and injured 17 others.
The IDF failed to defend Israel's Golan border.
IDF failed to defend Israel borders, so hundreds of Syrians, Palestinians and a Hellzballah crossed to Israeli land
and hoisted Syrian and Palestinian flags in the Israel Golan village of Majd al Shams. They were there for hours and no one was stopping them.
The Syrian invaders were finally driven back across the border by local Druze chiefs. Israel still does not know how many left and if any remained.
Hamas takeover of Gaza from Egypt
May 16, 2011
Syrian President Bashar Assad had 2 objectives in bussing thousands of demonstrators to their border with Israel, easily capturing a village on the Israeli side.
This helped Egypt transfer Hamas command centers from Damascus to Gaza to better terrorize Israel.
Palestinians consistently refuse to accept Israel, preferring to attack them.
Syria, Hellzballah and Hamas are now calling the Palestinian shots.
(That is NOT news.)
Saudi Arabia is busy defending against Turkey and Barack Obama
Nakba Day FOCUS was not within Israel, but rather its borders.
Egypt promised Hamas chief terrorist Damascus-based Khaled Meshaal that Cairo would hold Israel back from defending herself in Gaza.
Egyptian troops are now defending the Gaza Strip. VERY BAD!
Israel invited this by NOT taking military action to Hamas missile blitz in April.
Syria simply exploited Israeli timidity.
Egyptian currency will replace the Israeli shekel as legal currency in Gaza.
April 9, 2011 Hamas missile attack from Gaza on a Yellow Israeli School bus. Most puppet media failed to report it correctly.
Hamas continued the attack by firing 45 more missiles into Israeli towns with the intent to kill civilians.
Dont trust UN / UNIFIL to protect Israel. They are terrorists.

Israeli Army gearing up for mass riots this week
Gaza is now Egypt with thousands of missiles
May 31, 2011 I have added my comments from previous knowledge, and edited debka.
Gaza belongs righteously to Israel, according to GOD. Gaza now essentially belongs to Egypt, or is in that process. Israel wrongly gave Gaza to the Palestinians in 2005.
Cairo is controlling security in Gaza. Hamas is gaining momentum in both Egypt and Gaza.
The EVIL Muslim Brotherhood jihadists are rising to power in Egypt, who have NO intention to honor the peace with Israel. Just the OPPOSITE.
Hamas-Gaza has stockpiled over 10,000 missiles, including anti-tank and anti-air missiles and a 120 mm mortar shell in Gaza, despite Israel's partial blockade of Gaza.
April 9, the Palestinians shot 133 rockets at 7 Israeli cities. Hamas fired an anti-tank missile April 7 at an Israeli school bus causing the death of a 16-year old Israeli boy.
When Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin 'Bibi' Netanyahu said May 30 that Hamas is expanding control of Egyptian Sinai, he omitted the smuggling tunnels.
Since Hosni Mubarak's ouster in February, the Muslim Brotherhood and its offshoot Hamas have gained traction in Egypt proper.
Israel does little or nothing about weaponry smuggled into enemy nations. What could they do without starting war?
The UN hate Israel and they wont stop it. In fact, UNIFIL COOPERATES with the terrorists so much that the Hellzballah flag flew next to the UN flag at UNIFIL headquarters in South Lebanon!
Israeli borders to be attacked again June 3 - 7
May 31, 2011 These devils dont give up
Palestinians and their supporters are preparing to launch another multipronged assault on Israeli borders this week.
A Palestinian intifada will march on Israeli borders with Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Gaza, and cause riots on Temple Mount, Jerusalem June 3, 5 and 7th.
JIHAD Flotillas to Gaza are War on Israel
Magic Wand defense system
June 1, 2011
Mid-range anti-missile defense system, Magic Wand, to become operational sooner than expected
Magic Wand is the IDF mid-range anti-missile system which will give the military the option to change a missiles course in mid-flight.
The system may become a part of the IDF defense in 2013.
Wont help if the BIG WAR is this summer.
Palestinian riots and border attacks on Israel
ISRAEL HAS EVERY RIGHT to DEFEND AGAINST ATTACKERS!!!
The controlled-by-Evil world press ALWAYS have a bias against God and His people.
Palestinians attack Jerusalem Kalandia checkpoint
REMEMBER - There is NO 'palestinian' land and never has been!
June 5, 2011 Sunday
Kalandia checkpoint is between Jerusalem and Ramallah, Palestinian protesters throw stones, Molotov cocktails at police in Hebron, throw bottles into kindergarten.
At least 250 Palestinians clashed with Border Police at the Kalandia checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ramallah Sunday afternoon as part of Naksa Day.
IDF responded by firing tear gas, shock grenades and rubber bullets to disperse them.
Hundreds of terrorists rally near Israel-Syria border
Attackers began stoning IDF troops and attempted to cut through the fence.
IDF forces called on the demonstrators to cease before firing warning shots in mid-air.
Once those were ignored, the troops fired at the lower extremities of several attackers.
Red Cross Ambulances evacuated the injured. Arabs often use Red Cross Ambulances and weapons
to carry suicide bombers into Israel to attack.

They were throwing rocks after the soldiers tried to stop them with tear gas and loudspeaker warnings in Arabic.
The IDF were instructed to act to prevent mass breaches of Israeli Syrian, Lebanese, Gaza and West Bank borders.
Israel cannot tolerate any more assaults on its borders.
video on ynet
See the bias?
Israel is NOT 'occupied' - that is a Satanic and evil word being used by those who oppose the LORD GOD of ISRAEL.
nbc also uses 'opened fire' as if Israel seeks to kill, when Israel is defending against attack.
Israeli forces opened fire on Sunday as a large crowd of pro-Palestinian demonstrators approached an Israeli border fence along the occupied Golan Heights.
The first of 3 days the Palestinians called for rioting evidently it did not happen on Friday, June 3.
The Palestinians planned a series of events for Palestinians to storm all of Israel's borders.
Palestinians in Lebanon may postpone their march. No telling what these devils will do!
The whole world - even the church! - is on the side of the enemies of GOD and Israel! DECEPTION!
Israeli troops battle protesters in Syria, 20 dead
By DANIELLA CHESLOW, Associated Press Daniella Cheslow, Associated Press – Sun Jun 5, 4:27 pm ET
MAJDAL SHAMS, Golan Heights – Israeli troops on Sunday battled hundreds of pro-Palestinian protesters who tried to burst across Syria's frontier with the Golan Heights, killing a reported 20 people and wounding scores more in the second outbreak of deadly violence in the border area in less than a month.
The clashes, marking the anniversary of the Arab defeat in the 1967 Mideast war, drew Israeli accusations that Syria was orchestrating the violence to shift attention away from a bloody crackdown on opposition protests at home. The marchers, who had organized on Facebook, passed by Syrian and U.N. outposts on their way to the front lines.
"The Syrian government is trying to created a provocation," said Israel's chief military spokesman, Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai. "This border has been quiet for decades, but only now with all the unrest in Syrian towns is there an attempt to draw attention to the border."
Human rights groups say President Bashar Assad's forces killed at least 25 people in northern Syria over the weekend, and another 65 activists were killed in the central city of Hama on Friday, as anti-government protests spread through the country demanding his resignation.
There was no Syrian comment on why the protesters were allowed to storm the border, apparently undisturbed by authorities. But Syria's state-run media portrayed the event as a spontaneous uprising of Palestinian youths from a nearby refugee camp.
After nightfall Sunday, Syria's state TV said there would be an open-ended sit-in at the border, and thousands more protesters were on their way.
The protests began around 11 a.m. with what appeared to be several dozen youths, brought in on buses. It gained strength through the day.
By evening, the crowd had swelled to more than 1,000 people, who milled about, prayed and chanted slogans in an uneasy standoff with Israeli troops in the distance. The army bolstered its positions, posting a dozen armored vehicles and jeeps along the border road.
A small group of youths managed to cut through a recently fortified coil of barbed-wire and took up positions in a trench inside a buffer zone about 20 yards (meters) from a final border fence. Israeli troops periodically opened fire at young activists jumping into the ditch, sending puffs of soil flying into the air.
As the standoff stretched into the evening, Israeli forces fired heavy barrages of tear gas to break up the crowds. Hundreds of people fled the area in panic, while some 20 people laying on the ground received treatment. It was not immediately clear whether the crowd would return to the front lines.
At nightfall, crowds of people fell to the ground in Muslim prayer, and several small groups lit bonfires, indicating the standoff would continue.
Israel had promised a tough response after being caught off guard in last month's demonstrations, when troops killed more than a dozen people in clashes along the Syrian and Lebanese borders. In Syria, hundreds of unarmed protesters managed to breach the border and entered the Israel-controlled Golan for several hours.
The May 15 unrest occurred on the anniversary of Israel's birth in 1948, a day the Palestinians refer to as the "nakba," or catastrophe.
Sunday's clashes marked the "naksa," or setback, the term the Palestinians use for the defeat in the 1967 Mideast war. During that war, Israel conquered the Golan Heights from Syria, the West Bank and east Jerusalem from Jordan, and the Gaza Strip and Sinai peninsula from Egypt in just six days of fighting.
Israel returned Sinai to Egypt under a 1979 peace accord, and withdrew from Gaza in 2005.
The Palestinians seek the West Bank and east Jerusalem, along with Gaza, for a future state, while Syria demands a return of the Golan, a strategic plateau overlooking northern Israel which Israel has annexed, as the price for peace.
Still, until last month, Syria has steadfastly kept its border with Israel quiet for nearly 40 years, fueling the Israeli accusations that Syria was trying to draw attention away from the months of protests that have left more than 1,200 Syrians dead.
Ahead of Sunday's unrest, the army said it would deploy large numbers of forces, along with anti-riot weaponry like tear gas and water cannons, to prevent a repeat of the May clashes.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he ordered forces to show "maximum restraint," but also said Israel would protect its sovereignty.
"Unfortunately, extremist forces around us are trying today to breach our borders and threaten our communities and our citizens. We will not let them do that," he told his Cabinet.
The Israeli military said it used live fire only after firing warning shots into the air and issuing verbal warnings to protesters to stay away.
Protesters waved Palestinian flags and threw rocks and trash over the fence, and the sporadic pops of Israeli gunfire were heard throughout the day. The wounded were taken away on stretchers by groups of young men.
"We were trying to cut the barbed wire when the Israeli soldiers began shooting directly at us," Ghayath Awad, a 29-year-old Palestinian who had been shot in the waist, told the AP at the hospital.
Residents of Majdal Shams, ethnic Druse who remain Syrian citizens while living on the Israeli side of the frontier, watched the protest from rooftops, booing each time the military tried to speak and cheering on the protesters. When troops fired tear gas, a crowd of residents — some holding Syrian or Palestinian flags — began to scream and hurl stones from rooftops at the nearby forces. Israeli anti-riot police fired tear gas and moved into the town. Village elders with thick mustaches argued with the forces, but there were no signs of violence.
Throughout the day, ambulances raced to the hospital in the Syrian border town of Quneitra with the wounded and dead. State-run Syrian TV said 20 people were killed, including a woman and teenage boy, and 325 were wounded, 12 critically. Hospital officials confirmed the casualty count, providing names of all the dead.
Capt. Barak Raz, an Israeli military spokesman, confirmed that protesters made it through a first layer of the border fence — the area protected by barbed wire — but got no closer than 160 yards (meters) away from the final fence. He said the army would "continue to operate" throughout the night to prevent border breaches.
He refused to confirm reports that Israel had laid land mines along the area, saying only that the army "took measures to ensure we wouldn't allow any crossing into Israel."
The army claimed that protesters threw firebombs that ignited land mines on the Syrian side of the border. There was no confirmation from the Syrian side.
The recent protests have drawn attention to the plight of Palestinian refugees who fled or were expelled from their homes during Israel's war of independence in 1948. The original refugees, and their descendants, now number several million, and they demand "the right to return" to the families' former properties.
"We want on this occasion to remind America and the whole world that we have a right to return to our country," said Mohammed Hasan, a 16-year-old student who was wounded in both feet.
As a Palestinian living in Syria, he is likely the descendant of people who left or fled the area that became Israel during the 1948-49 Middle East war.
Israel opposes the return of these people, saying it would spell the end of the country as a Jewish state. The plight of the refugees and their descendants is one of the most difficult issues in any future Israeli-Palestinian peace accord.
Around half a million Palestinian refugees live across 13 camps in Syria, a country with a population of 23 million. Palestinians are allowed to work and study in government and private schools, but they do not have citizenship and cannot vote. In neighboring Lebanon, Palestinian refugees are largely discriminated against and banned from all but the most menial professions.
Things were relatively calm on Israel's other borders on Sunday.
About 400 Gazans hoisting Palestinian flags and posters gathered near the main passenger crossing into Israel, but riot police from Hamas, which runs the Gaza Strip, prevented them from marching toward the crossing.
At the West Bank's main crossing into Jerusalem, several hundred Palestinian young people tried to approach the checkpoint. They threw stones at Israeli forces, who responded with tear gas and rubber bullets. No major injuries were reported.
Palestinian organizers in Lebanon called off a planned march to the Israeli border after Lebanese authorities had declared the area a closed military zone.

Palestinian border attacks on Israel
ISRAEL HAS EVERY RIGHT to DEFEND AGAINST ATTACKERS!!!
June 6, 2011 Monday
The controlled-by-Evil world press ALWAYS have a bias against God and His people - as you see by BA's yahoo post.
DO NOT INSTANTLY BELIEVE reports of deaths of the attackers. They are quiet simply put - LIES or DECEPTION.
OFTEN the Palestinian 'corpse' is faking - or has been killed by another Muslim.
Syria promises $25,000 to the families of anyone killed by the IDF
Around noon Sunday, about 150 protesters attacked the international border fence between Syria and Israel.
The crazy Muslim Palestinians attack Israel's border, stone the IDF, throw flaming bottle rockets,
try to cut the border fence, then get angry because Israel didnt welcome them with tea and baklava.
Israel has right to defend itself
Protesters caused their own deaths
YOU CAN NOT BELIEVE MEDIA AT ALL!
I believe if any of those who attacked Israel were killed, their own killed them.
If Israel killed those attacking, they were 100% justified in doing so. They should have killed them ALL.
It angers me that media report Israel killed those attacking them, without saying WHY or digging into what the facts are.
Syrian protesters ignited minefields, threw firebombs without preparing extinguishers. HAHAHAHA!!!
The border has mined ceasefire line.
IDF called 3 ceasefires to allow Red Cross to evacuate wounded, but Muslim attackers used this to gain ground
Many of the Syrian attackers who stormed the Israeli border were responsible for their own deaths by igniting mine fields on the border.
Syrian police are preventing pro-Palestinian marchers from approaching the border. There are several ways to interpret this.
June 6 IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz toured Majdal Shams, near Israel's border with Syria.
Israel has right to defend itself
Israeli army on night alert
SYRIA paid Golan terrorists $1,000 each to attack Israeli troops on Golan June 5, even for $1,000 for each one.
Sunday, June 5, hundreds of Syrian-Palestinians were throwing rocks and attempting to break through Israeli's fence.
Casualties were reported from an old anti-tank mine explosion inside Syria.
Israeli troops opened fire during the day when the Syrian attackers were not stopped by tear gas, shots in the air, firing aimed at legs and loudspeaker warnings in Arabic.
The soldiers used sniper fire against a terrorist trying to cut the fence and 2 gunmen sighted in near the Kuneitra border.
The Israel-Syrian fence was repaired and strengthened with coiled razor wire, ditches were dug and signs warning of minefields put up.
The IDF declared the entire Golan a closed military zone.
Netanyahu had warned that Israel would not tolerate any more assaults on its borders.
Near Jerusalem police used rubber bullets, stun grenades and tear gas to push hundreds of Muslim Palestinian rioters back from the Kalandia crossing from the West Bank side.
Call to pray for Israel
