Israel’s response to the Goldstone Report (and everything else for that matter)

It's only fair to share...Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterEmail this to someoneShare on Google+

The UN report issued last week and authored by Richard Goldstone, claimed that the IDF committed war crimes in seeking to defend Israel from Hamas’s missile and rocket onslaught from Gaza.

 

I happened upon the video pasted below by chance last week and it occurred to me that the people of Israel don’t really care about Goldstone and the UN and all their libels against our sons, and daughters, our brothers and sisters, husbands and wives in the IDF. We aren’t seeking their approval or permission. We know who we are and we know who our soldiers are.

 

I think this video pretty much sums it up. The song in the background is Psalm 121. It was written by King David.

 

The folks at Art Scroll/Mesorah Publications were kind enough to send me their translation of the psalm for those of you who are unfamiliar with the text.

 

 

A song of ascent.

 

I will raise my eyes upon the mountains;

 

Whence will come my help.

 

My help is from Hashem;

 

Maker of heaven and earth.

 

He will not allow your foot to falter;

 

Your Guardian will not slumber.

 

Behold he neither slumbers nor sleeps — the Guardian of Israel.

 

Hashem is your Guardian;

 

Hashem is your shade at your right hand.

 

By day the sun will not harm you,

 

Nor the moon by night.

 

Hashem will protect you from every evil;

 

He will guard your soul.

 

Hashem will guard your going out and your coming in.

 

From this time and forever.

 

 

Take that “Judge” Goldstone, UN, Barack Obama and all the rest.

 

Shana tova to Am Yisrael and to all of our friends.

    Beautiful. As for Goldstone, he probably needs to kiss a$$ and look good to his UN puppeteer masters.

    Thank you Caroline for posting this wonderful YouTube video of Israel. My heart goes out to each and every Israeli soldier as they defend their God-given country and honor Hashem. Israel remains in the prayers of many around the world.

    I pray for the peace of Jerusalem and the people of Israel daily. Every morning when Israelis wake up, they are SURROUNDED by hatred. I can’t imagine the toll it would take.
    But in the face of lies, accusations and violence, you stay strong, and civil; even kind. Why? You do know who you are.
    You are the bravest, most courageous people.
    I wish your enemies could realize they would be better off to leave you alone.
    Because,
    Hashem IS your Guardian

    Don’t lose that tempo, Caroline. Use it to look above and past the mundane politics, Netanyahu included. Take a step back to see the forest for the trees. Look at the big picture, of where we, the Jewish Nation, are supposed to be heading but are failing.

    Beautiful! The IDF is the most compassionate army in the world. Their achievements are miraculous. I love the Psalms that put to music the promises that really protect the Jewish state.
    As for Operation Cast Lead, I think Prime Minister Golda Meir stated it well years ago. “We can forgive them for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for making us kill their children.” What other army notifies its targets early enough for them to evacuate? I am a US soldier and America doesn’t do that.

    Caroline, thanks for the video, even I get glassy eyed.
    As I mentioned before, the IDF doesn’t have a reputation of mistreating the enemy, it’s not their MO.
    The IDF’s are defenders and liberator of freedom not terrorist.
    They wear the Star of David and it represents more than a nation’s flag, it’s a symbol relating to G-d.

    Thank you Caroline,
    This video is what it is all about !
    The fear of man brings a snare and I hope soon Israel is freed from this curse.
    ‘Then the children of Israel moved, and camped in the plains of Moab on the side of the Jordan across from Jericho. Now Balak the son of Zippor saw that Israel had done to the Amorites. And Moab was exceedingly afraid of the people because they were many, and Moab was sick with dread because of the children of Israel.
    So Moab said to the elders of Midian, “Now this company will lick up everything around us, as an ox licks up the grass of the field.” And Balak the son of Zippor was king of the Moabites at that time.
    Then he sent messengers to Balaam the son of Beor at Pethor, which is near the River in the land of the sons of his people,to call him, saying: “Look, a people has come from Egypt. See, they cover the face of the earth, and are settling next to me!
    Therefore please come at once, curse this people for me, for they are too mighty for me. Perhaps I shall be able to defeat them and drive them out of the land, for I know that he whom you bless is blessed, and he whom you curse is cursed.”
    Numbers 22
    Why such a global fuss about Jews building a few homes on empty,long forsaken land and silence on so many serious issues like global Islamic terrorism ?
    It’s easy to understand why if you factor in their UNITED hate for God and His ISRAEL.
    Israel’s GLOBAL enemies like King Balak before them,(especially the charlatan enemy US) and those in the Israeli government like Yuli Tamir know how to bring a curse upon Israel.
    If they can get Israel to obey their evil consensus instead of God to stop building on the land He has given and surrender it to His enemies who want to exterminate Israel than Israel has cursed itself by disobedience to God’s command to build and rebuild.
    The question is;
    Who will Israel listen to,jerks in nice suits or God ?
    My simple message to Israel is stop listening and trusting the lairs who hustle their fake peace Road Map and dump the Ehud Barak’s,the Fuad’s,the Netayahu’s,the Tamir’s before they bring an even greater disaster upon Israel.
    Obey Hshem ,not the consensus of the failed losers who religiously serve their idols in Washington.
    The Yuli Tamir’s and her failed politics of surrender to those who seek only Israel’s destruction whose miserable song is;
    ‘We are tired of God and freedom and of resisting evil and so we embrace it.
    We surrender to it because we love lies and hate the truth.
    We of the mentally unbalanced left hate God.
    All we want is to be good dhimmi’s for our masters’ and the rest of our fellow Jews we sacrifice to our god of lies and delusions.

    Good for you Caroline. This won’t change anybody’s minds but hey, who cares? The one we should perhaps be sorry for is the man’s daughter who has to look Israelis in the eye every day.

    The Goldstone Report is intellectually dishonest, as it charged the IDF with war crimes while ignoring the real war criminals. During Operation Cast Lead, Hamas was cowardly using civilians as human shields, while purposely targeting innocent Israeli citizens. Israel has every right to protect itself from Islamic terrorists. And we look forward to the day when brave IAF pilots reduce Iran’s nuclear sites to rubble. Great video and Shana Tova 5770!

    And to think … it is left wing Jews who are the ones doing much of this. We can all thank George Soros, Rahm Emanuel, and David Axelrod for the fact that Obama is now dictator of the world. And you can toss in the boys from the neo-Marxist Frankfurt School as well such as Herbert Marcuse, whose deity they created out of thin air is political correctness…

    It’s probably good in a way that this report will wake Israel up to the fact that they are alone.
    Errrr…wait a minute, they have G-d on their side. I’d say that’s all they need.
    May G-d curse countries like the USA which have abandoned Israel.

    It breaks my heart to see the posts decrying the US as an enemy of Israel. The president, Barak Obama, is an enemy of Israel and I believe he is also an enemy of the US. I read “Pop’s words “May God curse countries like the USA which have abandoned Israel.” I fear those words are just a post script, Barak Obama’s lies against Israel at the UN today have brought my country under God’s curse. Israel’s defense is the power of God and it’s righteous people, my country has been rendered defenseless today.

    Pops,
    I’m afraid you’re exactly right. As I look back on 5769 I think the lesson is the same one Israel has been taught before. Don’t trust other nations! Trust only in the L-rd. He is a majority and superior force by Himself. Yoel 3:2 promises judgment to the nations. For what? For dividing His land. Maybe tomorrow’s headline.
    I’m an American soldier who wishes now to be with the IDF. I pray for them daily and fear I may become a conscientious objector before my enlistment is up.
    I have only faith in G-d’s grace to keep me sane when I here Barak’s foreign policy adviser speak of possibly shooting down IDF planes over Iraq. We have a navy for cryin’ out loud that could defend the Strait of Hormuz! A gentile American soldier is singing HaTikvah and praying if Prime Minister Netanyahu can carry a hallel in a bucket to please give us an encore! Remember operation Opera from 1979.

    I am not the only one who has been waring of impending destruction of America.
    The Rabbi maight not see the U.S. as a target but it is.
    The proud US Navy was quietly protecting Hawaii on Sunday December 7,1941 when the unexpected happened.
    It’s going to happen again to the evil and arrogant nation which rejected God and divides His land to His enemies.
    from vision of geulah ;
    Research revealed that Rabbi Shimon Dahan, known as “the Rabbi who foresaw the Tsunami”, is saying that he has been informed from Above that there will be an atomic blast during that span of time. (Rosh Hashanna and Sukkot)
    Something which will unify the hearts of Israel and cause Mashiach to come.

    America Babylon,gone on 1 hour.
    If Obamination declares a US Naval blockade in the Persian Gulf against Iran before Sukkot, Iran will attack ALONG WITH HER ALLIES.
    WW3 is upon us and it will not be a simple surgical strike against Iran as so many deceived ones in Israel think.
    Faithful Israel will no longer trust in idols to help or save her after God sends destroyers against America.

    The only scary thing about the slide show is that a lot of the large ordinance is American-made.
    This should be a good thing but has become a weak point.

    Immensely enjoyed your article. Also listened to your various analysis on PJTV. You have tremendous incite and understanding of the global political scene. Unfortunately we now have a President, who flat just doesn’t get, and that is literally across the board of both domestic and foreign affairs. I tried to warn people before the election, but too many people did not want to hear it. Aside from the adoring MSM, I do believe that both Bush and McCain and their initiatives or lack thereof helped put our charlatan-in-chief into office. I do not like to be on his case all the time, but as of this point in time, I see little good in him. I literally think it would take St. Paul experience to turn this man around.
    I am a conservative and a huge supporter of Israel. I have been there three times. Trust me, this Obama fellow does not know the first thing about being a Christian, and he is not a follower of Jesus Christ. His stance regarding Israel is not only not good for Israel, it is not good for America either, for Obama does not know the scriptures nor the repercussions of becoming an enemy of Israel.
    Marcel, there are those of us conservative(true) Christians, who not only support Israel and her people but would give our lives, if necessary, to preserve her. May sound strange to you, but it is true. As you say, your Jehovah, who is also my God, along with His Son, is a jealous God and will have no other gods before Him. Maybe, Israel was depending too much on America. If that is the case, we, unfortunately, now have a Barack Hussein Obama to deal with. As my secretary says, “What part of that name is American?”
    As far as Brzezinski is concerned, he is just another of the left wing loons that the not so anointed one has surrounded himself with. What a travesty!
    In closing, He who never slumbers nor sleeps will continue to watch over Israel and her people regardless of what Obama attempts to do or fails to do.
    Thank you again, Caroline, for the important work that you do.

    I do not understand the cofusion on this planet over who Israel is. From the Christian perspective, Israel is God’s timeclock for mankind, period. Who cares what man says. The end result is known. It will not be altered by man. We are told to choose, just as Joshua said. Man by man, nation by nation.
    What do you expect from America? Elections have consequences. We live in a nation who now has laws protecting its citizens from creationism being taught in our schools. The end result is just one more nail in the already closing lid on America. A nation who does not know God, forgotten God, confused who it is.
    Israel has become a stumbling block to the world. It is only going to intensify. Obama, staying on present course, is doomed, he does not know God. If he did, there would be no dividing of the land, as the prophet Joel states. But, the land is divided. Is the leadership of Israel going to believe man or God. It looks like man. Land for Peace, what a lie from Hell.
    If Israel is waiting for support from the US, what will it look like? It may just match the pre 1967 borders. It may look like Iran with nuclear weapons, and more UN sanctions against Israel. And by the way Israel, we are coming in to rid you of your nuclear arsenal. I belive this will happen. A nuclear free Middle East. Has a nice ring to it. It would bring immediate death to Israel, in mans view. There is another view, but it is out of this world, not earthly. Can’t we get past the fact that man cannot govern himself. We want to seem like we understand? I am speaking of nations, not only individuals.
    Don’t forget dividing Jerusalem, or an international city. Jerusalem, just the word should cause all true Christians and Jews to stop and think. Jerusalem.
    The world is ready, the world who does not know or fear God, to eliminate Isael. Nations can meet till the cows come home, God has his eye on Israel. Is it not time to wake up? One person at a time, if need be. Why not start calling this what it is, God and Israel against the world, that is exactly what is happening.
    No man is so blind, as he who will not see.
