Federman Farm Life and Other Hevroni Adventures

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 3, 2009

BS”D

Noam and Elisheva Federman, both children of right wing activists, are brave patiots fighting for Jewish sovereignty in Eretz Israel.

Noam is the son of David Federman. David fought in Lehi, was arrested by the British during Mandate period, deported to Ethiopia, sharing a prison cell with future Prime Minister Yitzchak Shamir.

All I can find on Elisheva is that she is the daughter of David Ramati, an American immigrant to Israel, who lives in Kiryat Arba, a lovely town in the vicinity of Hevron.

The Federmans have 9 children. They have found there way to the news for many years, continually challenging the appeasers within the Israeli government who insist that significant portions of Israel become “judenrein”. I doubt they are really anxious to be in the news, but simply want to live in peace on the land the Almighty has given to them and the Jewish people. I don’t write neutrally about these people. I believe in their cause, as it is mine as well.

Below are a few articles I found that are pertinent to the latest controversy; namely, the brutal, middle of the night destruction of the Federman farm. What is reported is that over 100 black uniformed policemen surrounded the Federman home, children sleeping, busted through their doors and windows, roughly grabbed and even reportedly beat them and their children, ages 1 to 17, the oldest being a girl. They proceeded to throw Noam to the ground, handcuff him, manhandle Elisheva, throwing them out of their home. They didn’t give them time to take any of their valuables, books, toys, …nothing. They then bulldozed the home and all that was in it. Elisheva reports that Bedouin and others trampled their holy books, Mishneh Torah and their Tanakhim, as if they were walking on the floor.

After the various article and post links, I have some videos where you can see what is left of the Federman home, listen to Noam, Elisheva and one of their children, twelve year old Oved Federman, as well as Nadia Matar. A court did rule that this “evacuation” was done in an unlawful manner.

Last but not least, you can watch a typical demonstration in Hevron against Israel.

Comment from”federman1″ video by Promethio1 —

“This is planned for every Torah observant Jewish home in the historical Jewish areas of Israel, except of course for those who facilitate these operations for narrow and superficial purposes.There are far more than enough people in Israel who strongly disagree with the policy of uprooting Jews. But they are not the kind of people who are prone to using violence to enforce their will.May Hashem bring Justice to Israel swiftly and soon.”

Picking up the pieces…

Oved Federman age 12, “They beat her (his sister).” Who else did they beat? “Everyone.” Did they beat you? “Yes.”

And now a word from our peace loving neighbors…

The bravest of the brave are willing to take on the Israeli government on the issue of Hevron. One must be willing to be lied about, marginalized and demonized by the main stream media, both in Israel and abroad.

Here is a brief excerpt on the Hevron massacre from Jewish Virtual Library:

“When Jews finally gained control of the city in 1967, a small number of massacre survivors again tried to reclaim their old houses. Then defense minister Moshe Dayan supposedly told the survivors that if they returned, they would be arrested, and that they should be patient while the government worked out a solution to get their houses back. Years later, settlers moved to parts of Hebron without the permission of the government, but for those massacre survivors still seeking their original homes, that solution never came.”

The Jews of Hevron were taken by surprise when their Arab neighbors were willing to hunt them down, ferretting out every corner of their homes. The largely unarmed (okay, they had one gun) men, women and children hid behind their furniture, under their beds, in cellars. Approximately nineteen courageous Arab families helped their Jewish neighbors. These brave families, if they haven’t already, should be recognized as among the “Righteous Among the Nations”, but this probably won’t happen, as it would earn them everlasting scorn among their Arab brethren.

Hevron is now known as a completely the premier “Jew hating” town within Eretz Israel. I once visited Hevron in order to pray at Machpelah. We had to cancel due to rioting by the Arabs.

I will never forget the eyes of hatred that bore into mine from a particular Arab man, as our bus was stalled in traffic. He brazenly walked up close to our bus  and glared into the window of the bus. He caught my eye and slowly scanned back and forth between me and my little baby. He looked like he would have torn us both limb from limb if he thought he could get away with it.

In the Big Map News Week is still denying that Israel Exists

Posted by avideditor on March 3, 2009

Judge for yourself.

israel-is-still-red2It seems New Week is not very at being like Big Brother in 1984. Here is what Brain from Snapped shot said. “Newsweak has silently corrected the map in question. No admission of error, no correction, no nothing. Welcome to the New Soviet Era, my airbrush-loving friends.” It seems that News Week did not change there big map yet. Elder has noticed “Interestingly, their picture of Egypt is also pre-1967 – it includes Gaza.

The most charitable explanation I can come up with is abject ignorance. Perhaps we could clear all of this up if they had a report of Jordan’s religious freedom, so we could check out whether the West Bank is considered Jordanian territory, thus proving that Israel really doesn’t exist. ” “

THIS DAY March 3

Posted by Shiva on March 3, 2009

March 3 2009 Lahore, Pakistan. At least six policemen escorting the team bus were killed, along with a driver. Seven cricketers and an assistant coach were injured.

Pakistani officials said about 12 gunmen were involved and grenades and rocket launchers have been recovered. Officials said the incident bore similarities to deadly attacks in Mumbai in India last November. Pakistani cricket was already suffering from serious security concerns Pakistan invited Sri Lanka to tour only after India’s cricket team pulled out of a scheduled cricket tour on security grounds, following the Mumbai attacks.
And International Cricket Council president David Morgan told the BBC it would be “very difficult for international cricket to be hosted in Pakistan for quite some time to come”. Evacuation Reports suggest 10 to 12 gunmen ambushed the team coach and its accompanying police detail on the Liberty Square roundabout in the heart of Lahore, as the convoy was on the way to the Gaddafi stadium for a Test match.

The BBC’s Barbara Plett, in Islamabad, says accounts suggest the attack was sophisticated in nature, with one group of gunmen firing a rocket-propelled grenade in order to create a diversion, while others then approached, firing guns on the convoy.
She says the gunmen – two of whom were shown in TV pictures carrying backpacks – seemed to be well-trained.
Sri Lanka’s assistant coach Paul Farbrace, who is British, told the BBC: “There was a lot of shouting and people hitting the floor and when I got to the floor I realised that the blood that I could see was coming from me – luckily superficial wounds.” The Sri Lankan wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara told Australia’s ABC radio that he and his team mates probably owed their lives to their bus driver. “We had an amazing driver who just kept driving the bus straight through all of that to the ground and that’s probably what saved us.
“Officials in Lahore said two members of the Sri Lankan team, Thilan Samaraweera and Tharanga Paranavitana, were sent to hospital.
‘Security failure’
The Pakistani politician Imran Khan, a former captain of the country’s cricket team, said the Sri Lankan visitors had been given inadequate protection. “This was one of the worst security failures in Pakistan,” he said. “The Pakistan government guaranteed the Sri Lankan cricket team that they would provide them security.”
None of the attackers was killed or apprehended at the scene. Grenades and rocket launchers were found there, police said, and a manhunt is under way.
Security forces will be investigating any connections to al-Qaeda and Taleban militants as well as Kashmiri jihadi groups.
A Pakistani air force helicopter has now airlifted uninjured members of the Sri Lankan team out of the Gaddafi Stadium. Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapakse condemned the “cowardly terrorist attack” and ordered the players’ evacuation back to Sri Lanka.
A plane is being chartered for this purpose. Mr Rajapakse is cutting short a visit to Nepal. Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari also strongly condemned the attack, and ordered an immediate investigation “so that the perpetrators are identified and their motives exposed”, said a statement from his office.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for India’s foreign ministry offered sympathy and urged Pakistan to take “prompt, meaningful and decisive steps to dismantle the terrorist infrastructure once and for all”.

But a Pakistani minister, Sardar Nabil Ahmed Gabol, reportedly told private Geo TV that evidence suggested the attackers came across the border from India.

He said the assault came in reaction to the Mumbai attacks, and was a “declaration of open war on Pakistan by India”.

Israel a “Palestinian Territory”?

Posted by DJM on March 3, 2009

UPDATE BY AVID EDITOR: While Newsweek quietly replaced the pop-up image, the big map still has Israel in red (Indicating an “Unfree” Islamic State)

According to Newsweek, it is.

newsweek-sm

(Thanks, Avid! Without you, this story wouldn’t have broke! Good eye!)

Also according to NewsAppeaser Newsweek, we are at stage 7.

From The Evolution of an Appeaser:

  • Stage 1 (negation): Germany is not at all rearming.
  •  

  • Stage 2 (bagatellisation): Okay, but not very much.
  •  

  • Stage 3 (relativating): Okay, but in relation to GB, France and Soviets, it is a tiny army.
  •  

  • Stage 4 (psychologization): Okay, but try to understand how they must feel surrounded, yes, under siege by many other nations!
  •  

  • Stage 5 (disengagement): Okay, but now it is too dangerous to confront them.
  •  

  • Stage 6 (appeasement): For hell, don’t provoke them! That will only worsen the situation.
  •  

  • Stage 7 (resignation): We can’t do anything about it.

Why bother with all those pesky stages in between?

Jihad = Mein Kampf – Part 1

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 3, 2009

BS”D

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” — Edmund Burke, Irish philosopher, statesman (1729-1797)

In Arabic, “jihad” literally means “self-struggle”. So, say apologists for Islam. That is the soft definition, meant to soften us. Allowing ourselves to become entangled in politically correct ideas and language is meant to disarm us, to weaken our resolve to defend ourselves and our way of  life.

Jihad refers to the Muslim’s internal struggle. We are meant to think the concept of “jihad’ is solely about an internal, spiritual struggle. No. This is only part of the truth, says Walid Shoebat, a former PLO terrorist in part 3 of this series.  He goes on to tell us that “Mein Kampf” also means “my struggle”. He then asks us, what and who, was Hitler struggling against? Who are the jihadis struggling against?

Below are some quotes from parts of the video series entitled Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West, a 10 part series found on Youtube. I chose quotes which I thought demonstrate the connection between the concept of “jihad”, the Muslim’s struggle against the Jewish people, the West, and all non-Muslims, all moderate Muslims, and “Mein Kampf”, Hitler’s struggle against the Jewish people and all who refused to submit to his view of things.

Mein Kampf is a runaway bestseller in some Muslim controlled regions, such as the Palestinian administered territories.
