IDF fooled the Palestinian terrorists

Ted Kennedy dismissed SDI as Star Wars technology. Israel built its Iron Dome anyway, and is knocking down the rockets that terrorists send.

But technology alone is not the only arrow in Israel's quiver.

The Dusiznies blog showed how the IDF lured the terrorists into abandoning their posts and hiding.

The blog reported, "Just after midnight on Thursday morning, Israel announced that 'air and ground forces from the IDF are now attacking in Gaza. More details to follow.'

"Military columnists in Israel understood that this meant the armored corps and artillery deployed near Gaza will attack, but the unclear notice led foreign reporters to report the beginning of a ground operation in Gaza."

It was a trap.

The blog said, "Infantry, artillery, and tanks were moved towards the IDF border, and Hamas believed that Israel was about to begin a ground invasion. As a result, Hamas sent its fighters into its underground tunnel system beneath Gaza City."

The troops did not move in.

The rockets did.

The blog said, "On Thursday night, the IDF brought in 160 aircraft and dropped 450 bombs containing over 80 tons of explosives, hitting 150 terror targets in 35 minutes. Hamas' underground city was hit with enormous force, and the IDF collapsed the terror tunnel system, on the heads of the terrorists hiding in the tunnels."

Israel is being ruthless in this war because, thanks to President Trump, several Arab states have made peace with Israel. The Palestinians terrorists are pariahs.

Only lefties in America and Iran support the terrorists. The Democrat Party's argument is that Israel should respond proportionately.

That's rich.

This is from a left that destroyed billions in property last summer because a junkie died of a fentanyl overdose while in police custody.

Israelis have a message for American meddlers.

In an editorial today, Valerie Sobel of Arutz Sheva said, "We, the grass roots, extremist right-wing, Trump-loving Jews, would like to extend our warmest gratitude in electing one Joe Biden. Especially at this time.

"You were so right all along, our Nazi (in your words) President Trump (not your President, of course) kept much too much peace in the world. You were so right to seek Twitter peace above all other kinds; peace in Israel is for the birds.

"Today, after 1800 rocket bombardments over the tiny Jewish State, we are comforted by the thought that you no longer feel distraught by Trump's daily tweets and unsavory TV appearances."

Sarcasm seldom plays well in print.

This was an exception.

She ended her piece with a message for Democrat-voting Jews.

She said, "Today, you stand with all of Israel’s accusers. You stand with on-going media bias and social media poison. You stand with cancel culture and identity politics. You stand with rockets over Israel. You stand with anti-Semitic, anti-Israel Academia. You stand with popular opinions, appeasement policies and your precious untouchable careers. You stand with Obama 3.0 and all his enablers of terror on Israel. And worst of all, you stand in silence in front of your own DNA, your social justice warriors - your children.

"We? We stand loudly united with Israel, IDF and Donald J. Trump's policies. Today and every day."

My advice to Israel is to wipe out the terrorists. All of them. 

Then, 50 years from now, some prime minister may apologize for ridding the world of these mad bombers who use their children as shields.

And that's the whole point of this exercise: to have Israel survive another 50 years or longer.

Their Lord protects Israel. Their technology helps. Their guile wins.


  1. Their God is my God, Big D - they just haven’t yet made the decision to go Fully Woke in the best sense of the word.

    1. Nor will they. Lots of people before you have tried to get Jews to "upgrade" from one G-d to a three-in-one special - some by persuasion, others by force. But we're still here, with the Original Formula to which no newfangled "reformulations" can compare.

    2. I don't know. Jews for Jesus was a big thing when I was pastoring. I haven't heard much lately, but I assume they might still be around.

    3. Sure, Timothy, there have been individual Jews, or groups, that switched to Christianity. Sometimes because they were forced to; other times (as is the case with the Jews you mentioned) because they knew little to nothing about Judaism. But the Jewish people as a whole, even most of the ignorant ones - nohow. There's a reason why, even though most of the original disciples of Jesus were Jews, they ended up having to adapt the religion to gentile sensitivities and ideals (such as taking over a number of their holidays): because they found few takers among the Jews.

      Here's the deal, then. Christianity, with its three-in-one god who rules over all, is certainly a great improvement over religions with tens or thousands of gods each with their own narrow purview. And for us Jews, a Christian country without religious temporal power (i.e., the United States and other Western democracies) is a heck of a lot more congenial than other types, and certainly far better than Wokism. (Leading rabbis have in fact called the United States "a country of kindness" towards Jews.) But for us Jews collectively (or any major part of us), going from a singular G-d Who revealed Himself to our several-million-strong nation, to a tripartite one who did not, would be a step down, and we ain't going to do that.

    4. Both my grandmother's had Jewish mother's who converted to Christianity, as did my maternal grandfather. I don't know what religious beliefs were held by the others, but it is commonly accepted in our family that we are 3/8 Jewish, 1/4 German, 1/4 Polish and 1/8 Swiss Italian.
      There are people switching from Judaism to Christianity every day, and some like Ivanka Trump who convert to Judaism.
      GOD said that he would bless those who bless Israel and curse those who curse her. My advice, don't stand close to Idiot Omar and the rest of the squad.

  2. I believe the efforts by Trump in the ME set the stage for this inevitable conflict. Israel is killing Hamas, not Palestinians. They are surgically removing them. Now, in the vacuum, Saudi Arabia, et al, will be poised to offer assistance to the Palestinians with an eye toward removing the area as an ally of Iran. And no one will be surprised at this turn of events given the earlier negotiated relations between Israel and SA, etc.

    Biden and the Democrats are on the wrong side of history, Iran is going to be isolated even with the US government getting in bed with them.

  3. Netanyahu: We can kill them now, or we will have to do it 6 months or a year from now.

  4. Thank you Don for all the great work you do! you are a true gem!!

  5. Somewhere George Patton and Norman Schwarzkopf are toasting the IDF for brilliant misdirection.

  6. The experts agree.

    In the immortal words of William Tecumseh Sherman, "The more we kill today, the fewer we have to kill tomorrow".

    In the immortal words of Philip Henry Sheridan, "The only good one is a dead one".

    In the immortal words of Douglas MacArthur, "That's the best thing to do with them".

    1. In the immortal words of George S. Patton, "You don't go to war to die for your country. You go to war to make the poor dumb enemy bastard die for his country."

  7. Trump wrecked the cozy little party where the dems and republicans protected each other and all got richer and richer.

  8. Bravo to Israel for having the guts to actively protect their citizens!! America enabled and assisted fanatical terrorists to kill 3000 innocent Americans on 9/11, yet NO ONE was ever punished! We no longer have a president that will protect America and our second major attack is surely in the works as we speak! Its refreshing to see tiny Israel set the example for other nations to follow!

    1. I agree my Bubbleheaded friend! Proud to see SOMEONE without "Beyond Sausage" in their crotch taking care of bidness. Chew on that, your Forgetfulness!

  9. "The troops did not move in. The rockets did."
    When, oh WHEN, will the Palis learn that the Israelis are smarter, WAAAAAAAAAAAAY smarter, than they are? After all, they've been eating the Palis' lunch since 1948.

    ArutzShiva7 nailed it, but I doubt that those it addressed will wise up.

  10. Don, you must be over the target - Mozilla gave me a big red warning screen that I was trying to go to a !Deceptive Site! (dun dun *duun*!!!). Took me several tries to get here.

    1. The same thing happened to me here and at a couple of other 'leans right" blogs hosted at blogspot.

    2. Cromert~~

      I got the same warning screen!

  11. Israel is being ruthless in this war because they always are. They love war not peace.

    Rev 2:9 "'I know your tribulation and your poverty (but you are rich) and the slander of those who say that they are Jews and are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.

    Rev 3:9 Behold, I will make those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews and are not, but lie—behold, I will make them come and bow down before your feet, and they will learn that I have loved you.

    The synagogue of Satan is at it again.

    “…the Jews: who both killed the Lord Jesus, and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they please not God, and are contrary to all men: forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that they might be saved, to fill up their sins alway: for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost.”

    — Paul the Apostle

    “I had made up my mind to write no more either about the Jews or against them. But since I learned that those miserable and accursed people do not cease to lure to themselves even us, that is, the Christians, I have published this little book, so that I might be found among those who opposed such poisonous activities of the Jews and who warned the Christians to be on their guard against them. … Where you see or hear a Jew teaching, remember that you are hearing nothing but a venomous basilisk who poisons and kills people merrily, … and with all this, they claim to be doing right. Be on your guard against them!”

    — Martin Luther (1483-1546)

    History is littered with quotes like this. So is the New Testament.

    1. These are cherry picked quotes taken out of context.

      The main theme of the New Testament is that the Jews are God’s beloved; the references here are to specific instances and the assumption is that those referenced are not true Jews.

      It is well known among Evangelical scholars that the phrase “the Jews” often refers to the Jewish leadership in a certain context, not an entire ethnicity.

      Since the NT was written at a time when Jewish leaders (a legally protected religion) were persecuting Christians (who were not protected), it should not be surprising that there is tension evident in many instances.

      As for Martin Luther, these comments were made very late in his life and I know of no Christian group or individual who endorses or defends them. This is a straw man.

      Christians generally in the USA love Israel because our Lord Jesus is one of them and His Father chose them and they are “beloved for the sake of their forefathers” ( Paul, book of Romans)

  12. This could also be attempted retaliation for Trump's (and Israel's) killing of that Iranian terrorist general, what's his name, at the Iraqi airport. Iran is still really pissed about that. After this miserable Hamas failure, expect more from Obama's buddies in Iran. "Go ahead, make my day" comes to mind.

  13. Know, dear Christian, and have no doubts about it, that next to the Devil you have no more bitter, poisonous and determined enemy than a genuine Jew… If they do something good for you, it is not because they love you, but because they need room to live with us, so they have to do something. But their heart remains as I have said.”

    — Martin Luther (1483-1546)
    “What then shall we Christians do with this damned, rejected race of Jews? Since they live among us and we know about their lying and blasphemy and cursing, we can not tolerate them if we do not wish to share in their lies, curses, and blasphemy. In this way we cannot quench the inextinguishable fire of divine rage nor convert the Jews. We must prayerfully and reverentially practice a merciful severity. Perhaps we may save a few from the fire and flames [of hell]. We must not seek vengeance. They are surely being punished a thousand times more than we might wish them. Let me give you my honest advice.

    First, their synagogues should be set on fire, and whatever does not burn up should be covered or spread over with dirt so that no one may ever be able to see a cinder or stone of it. And this ought to be done for the honor of God and of Christianity in order that God may see that we are Christians, and that we have not wittingly tolerated or approved of such public lying, cursing, and blaspheming of His Son and His Christians.

    Secondly, their homes should likewise be broken down and destroyed. For they perpetrate the same things there that they do in their synagogues. For this reason they ought to be put under one roof or in a stable, like gypsies, in order that they may realize that they are not masters in our land, as they boast, but miserable captives, as they complain of incessantly before God with bitter wailing.

    Thirdly, they should be deprived of their prayer-books and Talmuds in which such idolatry, lies, cursing, and blasphemy are taught.

    Fourthly, their rabbis must be forbidden under threat of death to teach any more…

    Fifthly, passport and traveling privileges should be absolutely forbidden to the Jews. For they have no business in the rural districts since they are not nobles, nor officials, nor merchants, nor the like. Let them stay at home…If you princes and nobles do not close the road legally to such exploiters, then some troop ought to ride against them, for they will learn from this pamphlet what the Jews are and how to handle them and that they ought not to be protected. You ought not, you cannot protect them, unless in the eyes of God you want to share all their abomination…

    To sum up, dear princes and nobles who have Jews in your domains, if this advice of mine does not suit you, then find a better one so that you and we may all be free of this insufferable devilish burden – the Jews…”

    — Martin Luther (1483-1546)
    “It ought to be observed that the Jews, when they had treacherously set aside the covenant of eternal life which God had made with their fathers, were deprived of the treasure which they had till that time enjoyed; for they had not yet been driven out of the Church of God. Now that they deny the Son, they have nothing in common with the Father; for whosoever denieth the Son hath not the Father.”

    — John Calvin (1509-1564)
    “I have had much conversation with many Jews—I have never seen either a drop of piety or a grain of truth or ingenuousness—nay, I have never found common sense in any Jew.”

    — John Calvin (1509-1564)

    1. This blogger loves to say just watch out for those you aren't allowed to criticize. He should take his own advice for there isn't any one group so intolerant of criticism as Israel.

      Just ask AIPAC.

  14. a message for Democrat-voting Jews.

    They almost all vote for democrats! Name one prominent conservative Jew just one you can't.

    Who do you think created Hollywood? And still runs the place that has infected the culture with their movies for generations.

    Shush! Facts don't matter to zealots.

  15. Meanwhile back in Nazareth in 30 A.D.:

    Luk 4:25 But in truth, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heavens were shut up three years and six months, and a great famine came over all the land,
    Luk 4:26 and Elijah was sent to none of them but only to Zarephath, in the land of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow.
    Luk 4:27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, and none of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian."
    Luk 4:28 When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath.
    Luk 4:29 And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff.

    Gee I thought it was Pilate who tricked them into hating Christ so much as to kill him?


    "Did the Holocaust’s shadow give Progressive Jews such a fear of dying that they cling to a political ideology promising (but not delivering) peaceful death?"

  17. It seems to be that a lot of people dislike or even hate the Jews, and have for centuries. Israel was supposed to be their new home, and have made it so.
    So the Jews have worked for education, so that they're smart and intelligent, and having fought off the Arabs and Palis, some of whom are now smart, and seem to be becoming intelligent, but the Palis seem to prefer the "poor, poor, pitiful us" act and always looking for hand-outs. I could be wrong; I've been wrong before; but that's the way I'm seeing it.

    1. All of what you say and what we are witnessing was foretold by the prophets of the Hebrew Bible 2,500 years ago. The Babylonian Captivity was a dress rehearsal for 1,800 years of exile. And now, the prophecies of restoration are unfolding before our eyes. Not one prophecy said that such restoration would be unopposed. All said that enemies would be overcome. These prophecies, BTW, have been canonized into the Christian Holy Scriptures as far back as the Fourth Century. John Harvard took them seriously enough to require his divinity students to learn the Bible in the original vernaculars. If anyone wants to thwart these prophecies, it would be best not to play the role of an enemy.

    2. Sorry but the restoration was achieved once Christ ascended to the right hand of God and the Holy Spirit descended at Pentecost.

      There will be no restoration of ancient Israel. Paul says the new Israel is Christianity as God divorced ancient Israel once they killed his Son.

      Your premillenial I'm postmillennial that's the difference.

    3. Paul says the new Israel is Christianity as God divorced ancient Israel once they killed his Son.

      It's almost funny watching folks who can't read the Aleph Bet tell Jews the meaning of the Hebrew bible.

      Some questions:

      When God supposedly impregnated Mary, did she have an orgasm?

      Jesus was supposedly fully man as well as fully God. Does that mean Jesus woke up every morning with an erection, as men do? Did Jesus ever have a nocturnal emission, as men do?

      From where did Jesus get his Y chromosome?

      Why did James, who, as his brother, knew Jesus better than any of his other followers, reject Paul's antinomianism?

  18. Canonized in the fourth century? There were issues about which books belonged in the canon long before that, starting in the first century. The books of the Bible were not canonized by any nation; they were declared canon by the believers who used them. A few books were more controversial than the rest. Look up the Marcionite heresy.

  19. That's great, but I'd really like to see high powered lasers shooting them down. Especially at night.
