Israel, much like the fortress of Tel-Chai that Jospeh Trumpeldor fought to defend against Arab conquerors in 1920, finds itself beseiged by enemies both within and without. Terrorists, would-be friends inside and outside Israel, and even bad government officials. Here are the discussions of one proud Zionist resident on the state of the nation and abroad.
YnetNews documented dozens of Arabs from the same area as the murderer of the IDF soldier Tomer Hazan infiltrating specific borderlines illegally, in broad daylight, as the security forces are apparently ill-equipped to deal with them properly:
Sergeant Tomer Hazan was murdered Friday at the hands of his friend Nidal Amar – an illegal alien who unlawfully entered Israel. However, even this tragic event has failed to stop the endless flow of Palestinians infiltrating into Israel from the West Bank.
Ynet's cameras captured dozens of Palestinians crossing into Israel without hindrance through the border fence in the exact same area from which Hazan's murderer originated.
According to Israeli assessments, some 100,000 Palestinians are currently in Israel, of which some 30,000 have no valid permit. The IDF, police and Shit Bet are more than acutely aware of this issue.
Security forces launch daily operations along the border fence in an attempt to capture infiltrators, but the facts on the ground paint a worrisome picture with dangerous – and as we have seen fatal – implications.
Very horrific, and serious cause for concern. And I think this is just why the Haredi isolationists might want to consider accepting the army draft, if they care about human life: they could help guard against lethal infiltrators like these and everybody would be very proud of them. Yet, I mean it. In fact, even leftists who draft-dodge would do well to consider accepting recruitment for the same reasons.
I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
