violence breeds violence

While many Haredim (some are calling them extremists from the various extreme communities) have spent the later part of the day flocking to Meron, despite the closure and the danger of missiles from Hezbollah, the police have been trying to keep them off. Some incidents of violence have been reported. Despite the danger and the breaking of the rules, I don't think violence like this is warranted - a Magav soldier shoving an elderly man who does not seem to be violent or a threat to the ground. The elderly man needed to be taken tot he hospital to have his wounds treated.



People are shocked and wondering how this can happen.

Violence breeds more violence. The police and Magav in Israel were always overly violent to begin with. Now they have a Minister in charge of them who encourages them to be even more violent than they were in many situations, and the violence just breeds more violence. They cant turn it on and off at a whim. 

The violent tendencies of the police need to be rooted out. You cant pick out one incident and judge it. They arent violent in a vacuum.

Yes, the police have a lot to deal with. Protestors, people who think the law doesn't apply to them, terrorism, danger. Today they were forced to be present in one of the most dangerous spots in Israel because some people think the law doesnt apply to them and maybe they were frustrated at the situation and at the people. None of that is a good recipe for calm enforcement, but with violence too often encouraged, the chances for explosive situations increases tenfold..

Herzl in Gaza

Lieutenant Colonel Itamar Eitam, son of Efie Eitam, was injured in Gaza yesterday as he took a bullet from a sniper.



Refuah shleima to Itamar Eitam and I hope he recovers quickly and gets back to killing terrorists.

When I saw the picture publicized of Eitam I immediately said to myself, hey that looks like the famous picture of Theodore Herzl on the hotel balcony in Basel overlooking the Rhine in contemplation. What's he doing in Gaza??!! is this one of those montages where they overlay a picture into a different background?



of course that would be, minus the river and Swiss atmosphere, plus the gun and Gaza atmosphere..

and here we go side by side:



what do you think?

bshaa tova!
so why is the picture of a pregnant woman qualified for PotD? Because she isnt pregnant. This woman was arrested today, on Pesach Sheni, trying to smuggle a baby goat onto Har Habayit. She stuck the goat under her dress to make herself look pregnant and smuggle in the goat under the guise of pregnancy. 

A policeman noticed some strange movement and heard some unexpected noises, and checked her further, discovering the goat. The goat died of suffocation, without being slaughtered as a korban pesach.

Netanyahu = Sinwar?

I dont get how this works.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has accepted ceasefire proposals, only for them to be rejected by Hamas. Israel has changed its policy to allow humanitarian aid in to Gaza, and has regularly increased the amounts of aid being let in. Israel has warned Palestinians of upcoming attacks, thus waiving the element of surprise and increasing risk to Israeli soldiers. Israel has evacuated hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from the danger zones and has created humanitarian corridors for safe passage. 

Yet somehow PM Netanyahu is equated with arch-terrorist Yehiya Sinwar who took civilians as hostages and had his people specifically target civilians in brutal rapes and murders of the most gruesome kind. Hamas operatives taken prisoner are treated humanely - they are fed and given medical treatment along with a bed to sleep on, the ability to shower and take care of their personal needs, while the Israelis held hostage by Hamas are getting none of that.

And Netanyahu is on equal footing with Sinwar??? How is this possible?

a nation that will dwell alone

Back in 1994, when Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin signed the peace treaty with Jordan, Rabin said, no longer will we be "a nation that will dwell alone" - לא עוד עם לבדד ישכון.

Today, with The Hague issuing arrest orders for Prime Minister Netanyahu and Dfense Minister Yav Galant, alongside arch-terrorists Mohammed Def and Yehiya Sinwar, while representatives of Western countries are wishing Iran condolences on the death of the Butcher of Tehran Ebrahim Raisi, while the demands on and criticism of Israel's management of the war on Hamas increase including from the United States.. I think we can safely say we are pretty close to a nation that will dwell alone again, if we ever weren't....

Interesting Psak: bracha on the death of Raisi

Rav Yitzchak Zilbershtein, rav of Ramat Elchonon neighborhood of Bnei Braq, was asked a shaila regarding current events.

The question was asked before the final confirmation that the Iranian president Raisi was dead, but was asked while he was presumed dead but the search was ongoing. The question posed was with the news that one of the greatest enemies who made a lot of trouble for the Jews has seemingly died. When we will find out that he definitely has died should one maker the bracha of Hatov VeHameitiv? On the one hgand it will be joyous news, on the other hand another enemy and hater of the Jews will be appointed in his place so maybe there is no place  to make a bracha?

Rav Zilbershtein paskened that one should buy a new fruit and say a conditional bracha saying that if I can make the shehecheyanu on the news, I am making the bracha on both the fruit and on the news of Raisi's death, but if not then the bracha is only on the watermelon but not on the death of the wicked one.

The President of Iran, Zichrono Lklala

The helicopter of the President of Iran has crashed in the woods and nobody yet knows the fate of the passengers, including the President and other officials. The Iranians have been unable to make contact yet, up to this point in time, and due to bad weather have been unable to send in search teams.

1. Good riddance
2. I hope he survived the crash with horrible injuries and takes a lot of time to die of his injuries and infections waiting for someone to come save him. Maybe the other passengers will even eat him for lack of food. 
3. I would be happy to hear the Mossad was involved in this crash
4. If the Israelis did it, they should either say so outright or at least drop some strong hints so other enemies of Israel will know the long arm of Israel can reach them.
5. If Israel had nothing to do with it, that's also fine. Good job to whoever did it, even if it was purely an accident
6. Hamas reporting on the matter is surely saying there are 500 people on board that were all killed

Smotritch's bravado

Minister Smotritch called a press conference today to be held up north to discuss the deteriorating situation on the northern border.

Let's not forget that some people who are serving in the current government, even as senior members, regularly forget that fact - that they are senior members of the government - and go to protests against the government, hold press conferences against government policy and make statements criticizing the government they themselves serve in.

So Smotritch said we need to hit Lebanon hard, let them know we are serious, and take control of an area in Southern Lebanon and use it as a security strip to guarantee the security of the people of Israel.

The fact that we are in a war on the northern border but only playing a passive role in it is known to every Israeli and there seems to be a consensus to the fact that this needs to change. Israel cannot continue absorbing the attacks up north while tens of thousands of people remain evacuated from their homes with no end in sight. I wouldnt say war is necessary or war is imminent - we are already in a war, we just arent fighting our side of it yet.

The interesting thing about Smotritch's statement is that he wants to send us back to the 80s and 90s taking a security zone in south Lebanon to keep Israelis safe. I dont know if he thinks he can do things differently now but back then Lebanon, with the security zone, was a very dangerous place for Israelis, with soldiers killed far too frequently, and the northern border never quiet.  Israelis were so fed up of it that the consensus consistently grew that Israel needed to leave Lebanon, until it did (perhaps too hastily). Do we really want to go back to that situation?

Regardless of that though, once must really admire Smotritch's confidence and bravado. Back in the day we fought against 3 countries and defeated them in six days. The War of Independence against 6 countries took 7 months. The Yom Kippur War, which started off pretty lousy, took 3 weeks to beat two countries. And we are in a war now against a terrorist group from a pathetic little piece of land and while we have wreaked destruction on Gaza, none of the stated goals have yet to be accomplished. And Smotritch is itching to go to war (a necessary war that has been forced upon us) in Lebanon at the same time...

Picture of the Day



PM Netanyahu, in advance of Yom Hazikaron, donned tefillin, explainingthat the mother of a fallen soldier from the Tzuk Eitan operation gave him her son's tefillin. These tefillin had been with him the entire time in battle and it was the only item to survive the battle in which Moshiko Dwino fell. The tefillin covers are still coated in ash from the battle. Netanyahu said he promised her that he would lay them in memory of Moshiko and in memory of the other fallen soldiers.

Journalist Amit Segal surmises this is the first time Netanyahu has put on tefillin. Personally I doubt that, but maybe first time as Prime Minister.

hostage negotiations

I think it is very nice that Hamas accepted a hostage deal that was never offered, but the terms "they accepted" are ridiculous - besides for the number of Hamas prisoners per hostage, the idea of offering some remains or living hostages in exchange for, is disingenuous. Yes, we want the remains of hostages who have passed as well, but they are being proactive and think they hold the power and are able to offer us whatever they want because we are desperate.

Israel needs to be proactive in this. If Hamas thinks hostages, dead or alive, are worth x number of Hamas prisoners, and soldiers worth y, plus humanitarian aid and cessation of hostilities and reconstruction of Gaza, Israel should take that calculation and run with it, even with some adjustments. Translate it into some equivalent calculation and start executing, ie give the death penalty which is on Israeli law, to captured Hamas terrorists. Try them in military court, sentence them (my assumption is that this should be a fairly easy and straightforward trial - there is not much of a defense for what they did), and start publicly executing them according to the calculations of the hostage deal "accepted" by Hamas. If Hamas gets upset, they can trade hostages to save their terrorists from the firing squad.

I would focus, or at least start, with members of the Nukhba force that have been captured, and if necessary move on to others. 

With the assumption/knowledge being that Hamas has been killing, or leaving to die, the Israeli hostages, and likely most are dead by now, they need to pay for that. It would be somewhat revenge but also perhaps, hopefully, a deterrent to get Hamas to keep the rest alive for as long as possible and to stop dilly dallying and to get moving on a realistic deal before too many of theirs are dead.

Shame on the US government

The report from the Washington Post is shocking and upsetting.

Besides for the fact that Israel is an ally of the USA and at war, there are American citizens being held hostage by Hamas in Gaza.

According to the report, the USA has been holding concrete information regarding Hamas tunnels that Israel is supposedly not aware of, including information as to the whereabouts, in the tunnels, of Hamas leaders, and where hostages are being held. Not only has it been withholding this information but now it is willing to horse-trade with Israel for it.

Maybe had Israel been made aware of this information earlier the Rafah  offensive would never have been necessary in the first place. Maybe this war could have been over months ago. 

How long has the USA had this information and been keeping it to themselves? Does the USA really not care about finishing this war, getting rid of Hamas leadership and getting the hostages back? It seems the US government is more concerned about protecting Hamas than of Israel winning the war or keeping the hostages safe and bringing them home.

How dare you! Shame! Shame! How can keeping Hamas safe be your ultimate priority??!!

Tweet of the Day

I am not sure if this should be counted as Tweet of the Day or as Troll of the Day. I am going with Tweet of the Day, but really not sure that is the correct decision...



Minister of Internal Security Itamar Ben Gvir tweeted:
Galant, one of the leaders of the Conception and one of the leading people responsible for the failure of October 7, has no mandate to appoint generals and mold the coming leadership of the IDF General Staff. The appointments he has now decided on today in conjunction with the Chief of Staff show us that he is decidedly  showing contempt of the Israeli public.
This has no connection to the identities of the officers who have been appointed - it is very possible some of them are very worthy, but the decision-making capability of Galant to continue as if nothing happened under his responsibility as Defense Minister over the greatest failure in the history of the State.
In light of this, I call upon the Prime Minister to fire Galant from his position - he is not worthy to continue serving as Defense Minister.

1. Ben Gvir has called for the firing of Galant several times already. Maybe he needs to be more impactful if this is something he really wants - he is part of this government and if this is as serious a matter as he claims, he can threaten to bring down the government as he has done for other matters.

2. Ben Gvir has been Minister of Internal Security, in charge of the police. It seems he too was responsible for a large part of the failure of October 7. The police failed to protect the people of Israel along the border. The army failed as did the police. Ben Gvir should be fired, by his own logic, and should be prevented from making appointments.

3. PM Netanyahu was the leading person behind the Conception for many years, and holds ultimate responsibility. if he is not bringing them all to task, including the Prime Minister, how can he just try to bring one of them to task?

4. Should the army proceed to function short-handed? Until everyone responsible leaves their roles (ie after the end of the war), these changes cannot be made, so they have to be made now, like it or not. If the people responsible (ie pretty much the entire government and probably the entire leadership of the security forces) cant be fired or be forced to resign just yet, they still have to be able to continue to function.

Quote of the Day

it will be discussed, there will be opinions, we will come to understandings. Tzfat and Metula havent been closed, but Meron will be? Ok, we heard. The entire world waits for Meron.

  -- Minister Yitzchak Goldknopf, responding to the news that Meron will be closed and declared a closed military zone for the week leading up to Lag BaOmer and for Lag BaOmer itself, to prevent people form going there against instructions. 
Meron has been hit with rockets from Hezbollah several times (there is an important army base very close to Meron) and a party with a large amount of celebrants on Lag BaOmer could make this an easy target for Hezbollah and will be a potential disaster. Goldknopf obviously doesnt like the idea of Meron being closed on Lag BaOmer. 
What he said caused quite a stir, especially because Metulla is closed down. Goldknopf has since apologized, but specifically apologized for inaccurately bundling Tzfat and Meron together. It seems he still thinks the Meron celebration shouldnt be shut down, despite the war and danger, just he shouldnt have compared it to Metulla...

this should be our biggest problem

One of the things people get excited about with Pesach approaching, and then on Pesach, is the "KaElah" experience.

In the Torah reading in shul there is a word, KaElah, that is read in the cantillation with a rising sound and it has become popular, especially in recent years for the congregants to call it out in an exaggerated way. I have seen videos of people having a lot of fun with it, even singing it stretched out with musical accompaniment...

Recently I have seen several articles decrying this behavior, calling it inappropriate, a desecration and degradation of the Torah acting in this way during the Torah reading with the Torah laying open on the bima. Here is an exagerrated example or two...






Appropriate or not, it brings such joy to so many people..

All I will say is halevai this should be the most significant problems we have in Am Yisrael...
or in Hebrew, שכאלה יהיו הבעיות של עם ישראל....
