What’s hiding behind the curtain? The deception and selective justice of the boycott movement against Israel.
Egyptian Sharif Gaber’s video explains how logic ended his hate of Israel and his devotion to Islam –
“…In 50 years, what did Israel manage to do? Doubled its population up to ten times. Its agricultural production has expanded 16 times. Its industrial production has expanded 50 times. Its use of water has decreased by 10 percent… The percentage of Israelis engaged in scientific and technological inquiry, and the amount spent on research and development, is the second highest in the world… Israel is the fifth most clean tech country in the world… Israel was ranked 2nd in space sciences… Israel is the best country for women in the Middle East…”

Last year, the IDF set out on a mission to stop Hamas aggression against Israeli civilians. One of our major challenges was that Hamas’ chose to embed its vast terror network deep within Gaza’s population. The terror organization hid weapons in schools and mosques, fired rockets from hospitals and dug terror tunnels under homes.
When a weapons storage facility or launching pad must be targeted, but suddenly civilians appear in the area, you are faced with a serious dilemma. If you fire at the target, you may harm civilians nearby. If you don’t, you may be leaving Israeli civilians at risk.
Today, one year after Operation Protective Edge, we challenge you to face these scenarios and decide for yourself. Do you continue or abort?

The video you have just watched was filmed by the “Palestinian” terrorist prisoners. It’s meant to encourage Palestinians to commit terror attacks and to not fear imprisonment in Israeli jails.
The IDF operates a field hospital in the Golan Heights to treat wounded Syrian civilians affected by the civil war ravaging the country. “We help civilians who are injured by Syrian Army attacks or by the rebels,” asserts Golani Company Commander Maj. Simon Sisso.
Are you on the side that believes in open debates, or the side that represses free speech? The side that sanctifies life, or the side that worships death? If you are on the side of freedom & democracy, you stand on Israel’s side.
Israel has become the most reviled of states; and the international Left—world church bodies, British labor unions, American human rights groups and the like—has been especially vociferous in its condemnations. But, ironically, Israel’s humane accomplishments in the very realms that the Left most cherishes compare favorably with those of most other countries. This is especially true if Israel is compared with other countries in its region, or with other countries under external duress, or with the other states born after World War Two that have so often stumbled at nation-building. This video shows that in the achievement of liberty, equality, fraternity, Israel is one of the world’s most remarkable and admirable societies.
It is generally thought that the systematic diplomatic attacks against Israel in international institutions, many times through outright lies, are unfortunate, but they are really Israel’s problem. However, ultimately over time they erode the credibility of bodies like the UN, which often embrace these false charges, only to find later that they are baseless. In the meantime, other, more pressing, international conflicts are completely ignored. This video graphically presents the problem.
Friends and families all over Israel are coming together to celebrate the start of the Jewish Year. Behind the scenes, our soldiers work day and night, 365 days a year. These are our soldiers, and this is what they accomplished this year. Shana Tova from the IDF!
Since the beginning of the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas (Aug 5th) reports have begun to surface about the use made by Hamas terrorists in civilian areas to launch its rockets at Israel. These reporters, some threatened by Hamas not to broadcast such reports, exposed how Hamas launches rockets from the vicinity of the hotel where much of the foreign press was staying, reports even clearly indicate Hamas placing its launching pads near a UN facility, as Israel claimed, and as was denied by some.
The United Nations has made the democratic State of Israel the target of incessant condemnation while neglecting its mandate in challenging the oppressive regimes around the world.
The following film clip uncovers the factors behind the UN’s bias against Israel.
