This week, Hamas celebrates 10 years of control over Gaza. Let’s recap their biggest accomplishments.
Charity, traveling the world, teaching the next generation, and sports cars – these are just a few ways that people in Tel Aviv would spend 3 million dollars. If you asked Hamas, you would get a very different answer.
Hamas spends 3 million dollars on each tunnel that they build – and they keep building. There are better uses than terror.
Hamas committed thousands of war crimes during each war they conducted against Israel. There is no end to the list of war crimes committed by the terror organization. Yet, the UN prefer to condemn Israel for crimes the only democracy in the Middle East never committed.
Since October 1st, 2015 over 64 terror attacks have struck Israeli civilians. This terror doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Watch and see for yourself.
Beyond protecting Israel’s citizens, our soldiers embrace another role: serving a source of relief for people all over the world. From Japan to Haiti, from Nepal to the Philippines, our soldiers have worked miracles and saved lives.
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?

On January 7, 2015, a Palestinian man was caught in a snow storm, trapping him in his car near Hebron. IDF soldiers from the Etzion Regional Brigade rescued the man, released his car, and provided him with heating packs. The forces escorted the man to a sheltered location so he could return home safely.
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.

In August, al Nusra Front jihadists took control of Syria’s side of the border crossing with Israel and kidnapped over 40 United Nations peacekeepers — who have since been released.
But al Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-affiliate, isn’t Israel’s only threat from Syria. President Bashar al-Assad’s military, in a possible effort to bait Israel into its civil war to shore up Arab sympathies, has been lobbing mortars across the border. Just a few weeks ago, the Israeli military shot down a Syrian plane flying over the Golan Heights — the first time it has done so since the 1980s.
In part one of a five-part series, VICE News correspondent Simon Ostrovsky gets exclusive access to an IDF special operation, highlighting an unusual relationship they have with their Syrian enemies across the border.
On November 7, 2013, thousands of lives were changed when Typhoon Haiyan struck the Philippines. IDF search and rescue experts, doctors, and medical teams – trained to provide emergency aid in crises – immediately left for the Philippines and joined the international effort to support the devastated country.
