Motzei Shabbat

Motzei Shabbat News Roundup...(posted a 9:49 PM)

1. In a daring early Friday evening raid, deep in the Baalbek valley of Lebanon, IDF "sayeret matkal" commandos carried out a mission which involved the capture of 2 Hizbollah terrorists. One IDF officer was killed and two wounded. Of course, here's what special UN envoy to Middle East thought of the raid: "We had no independent means to verify ... what has happened. But if what has been reported is correct, it is of course a clear violation of the ceasefire," Terje Roed-Larsen told Lebanon's LBC television. Of course, getting our soldiers back is not a clear violation of the cease-fire.

2. Friday night terror attack at Bekaot Checkpoint in the Jordan Valley. One IDF soldier from the Nachal Chareidi was killed, and the other soldiers opened fire, killing the Palestinian terrorist.

3. Motzei Shabbat - firebombs were thrown at the entrance to Nofei Nehemya (East of Ariel). No injuries reported.

4. Israeli police arrest a Palestinian terrorist who stabbed to death an Italian tourist outside of the Old City of Jerusalem 2 weeks ago. For his defense, the Palestinian claimed he thought we has attacking an Israeli and not an an Italian tourist. That should reduce his sentence a bit...

If you can't make it out to the movies this motzei shabbat, here's a cartoon rendition of "History of the Middle East. (part 1)

Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael



I saw a report on Fox News just a few minutes ago about the two reporters. I hope they will release them unharmed. That is very sad. I do not know what to think.
That little strip of land Gaza needs to be wiped clean. I am sick of hearing about all the CRAP they do there. Its disgusting. Those poepl are ANIAMALS.

That clip, btw, is from the Glenn Beck show on CNN. GB is a conservative American talk radio host, pro-Bush and very pro-Israel (as you probably noticed). Apparently, CNN found themselves unable to ignore the very high ratings enjoyed by conservatives on Fox (like Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity), so a few weeks ago they bit the bullet and offered Glenn Beck a weekly hour-long show. That sent leftist and anti-Israel groups into a tizzy, with some of them even organizing boycotts.

It's hard to believe that this guy is actually on CNN. He's one of the only two things worth watching on that channel (the other being Jon Stewart's The Daily Show). Let's hope it's a sign of things to come...
