Brigette Gabriel: The Hamas War

The world is witnessing a war between savages and civilization. What happened in Israel is just another segment in this war facing all of western civilization. All the hopes of mankind depend on the utter and total defeat of the savages, not just in Israel, but in America, in Europe, in India and Asia, and around the world. This is not the struggle of any single nation, but the crisis of mankind. Either humanity will rise or we will fall.

Liel Hatzoni, age 12, was murdered by Hamas on October 7. Her remains have just been identified. The story of her death — there are so many stories that must be told – is told here: “Forensic Team Identifies Body of 12-Year-Old Liel Hatzroni from Kibbutz Be’eri,” i24 News, November 19, 2023:

The body of 12-year-old Liel Hatzroni has finally been identified, according to an announcement on Sunday, almost a month and a half after being murdered by Hamas terrorists who invaded her home on Kibbutz Be’eri on October 7.

Liel’s remains were found by archaeologists from the Israel Antiquities Authority who had been called in to help locate and identify bodies, particularly those badly burned to the point of being nearly unrecognizable. The Hatzroni family was informed Saturday evening.

Terrorists entered the Hatzroni family home and kidnapped family members on October 7, who were then taken to a home of Be’eri resident Pessi Cohen, where the Hamas operatives murdered the family and set the house on fire.

The family had already on Wednesday organized a funeral ceremony for Liel and her great-aunt Ayala. Her twin brother Yanai and her grandfather Avia were buried on October 23. The family were all killed during the October 7 massacre.

Liel’s personal effects were buried at the time, in the absence of her body, which had not yet been identified. The family held the farewell ceremony, unable to wait any longer for the body.

“We will honor her departure from us with a farewell ceremony and by burying her belongings. My heart is broken and shattered, and I refuse to believe it. It’s an ongoing nightmare, and I’m not sure we’ll wake up,” a close friend, Omri Shifroni, wrote on Facebook ahead of the ceremony.

The twins had been raised by their great-aunt Ayala and grandfather Avia since birth after their mother Shira suffered a stroke during a C-section birth. Kibbutz Be’eri had also helped as a community.

Think of her little life, her mother incapacitated by a stroke since Liel’s birth, and then think of how she died. She was most likely shot to death, murdered along with her twin brother, Yanai, and her great-aunt, Ayala, and her grandfather, Avia, who together helped to raise her and her brother. And then the house they had been herded into was set on fire. Perhaps her killer was the one who phoned his mother to excitedly tell her “Mom, I killed ten Jews!”

It’s unbearable.

Rep. Nadler Votes Against Ban on Funding College Antisemitism

Rep. Nadler shows he cares more about antisemites than antisemitism.

Rep. Mike Lawler (R – NY) introduced an amendment to the 2024 Labor, HHS, and Education bill barring taxpayer funding of campus antisemitism.

The really simple amendment stated that “none of the funds made available by this Act may be made available to an institution of higher education that authorizes, facilitates, provides funding for, or otherwise supports any event promoting antisemitism (as such term is defined by the working definition of anti-semitism adopted by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance on May 26, 2016, including the contemporary examples of antisemitism cited by the Alliance.) on the campus of such institution.”

The amendment passed the House 373 to 54.

Republicans voted for it 218-1 (Rep. Massie) while Democrats voted for it 155-53. That means a third of the House Democrat delegation voted against an amendment barring campus funding of antisemitism.

Who voted against it? The Squad is no surprise. There’s the usual collection of leftists and Islamist-friendly types, Rep. Barbara Lee, Rep. Jayapal, Rep. Betty McCollum, Rep. Raul Grijalva, Rep. Judy Chu, Rep. Marc Pocan, and then there’s the J Street crowd, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Rep. Sara Jacobs and Rep. Jerry Nadler.

That’s right. Jerry strikes again.

Rep. Jerry Nadler, a guy who balances a district with a lot of Jews, with a lot of anti-Israel votes, put up a tendentious statement attacking the amendment.

“To be clear, I am deeply concerned about rising incidents of antisemitism in our nation’s institutions of higher education,” Rep. Nadler began. Beginning with “to be clear” rarely leads to clarity or honesty.

Rep. Nadler attacked House Republicans for banning taxpayer funding of antisemitism instead of funding the “Office of Civil Rights” which has been largely useless.

He claimed that banning taxpayer funding of campus antisemitism was a “meaningless gesture” and “wildly counterproductive”. (If something is wildly counterproductive, it’s probably not meaningless.)

“Threatening to pull federal funding from the universities and college campuses that need our help the most is, at best, wildly counterproductive. Moreover, the amendment is so broad that it threatens to defund institutions that are working in good faith to fight antisemitism on campus. Under Representative Lawler’s construction, a university might lose its funding if a single student showed up to a single event with a single antisemitic sign—even if that student had no affiliation with the school. It should also be noted that Congress doesn’t cut funding to universities when individual students on campus use vile racist or homophobic speech. The scourge of antisemitism is real, and we have real work to do. Draconian measures like the Lawler Amendment are a step in the wrong direction.”

If you break down that flailing word salad of gibberish, Rep. Nadler is arguing that pulling funding for campus antisemitism would be counterproductive because colleges that platform antisemitism need help.

He falsely contends that “a university might lose its funding if a single student showed up to a single event with a single antisemitic sign—even if that student had no affiliation with the school”. The amendment states that the event itself has to promote antisemitism.

But that’s where Rep. Nadler shows his true colors.

He worries that an event might be wrongly characterized as antisemitic. An interesting concern for a supposedly Jewish politician who claims to be concerned about antisemitism, but is actually more concerned about antisemites.

Rep. Nadler argues that it’s unfair because Congress doesn’t cut off funding to colleges that platform homophobia, so why should it cut funding for antisemitism? Jewish constituents of Rep. Nadler must find the “why focus on antisemitism” argument very comforting.

Then he attacks a ban on funding campus antisemitism as “draconian”. Who thinks fighting campus hatred of Jews is “draconian”? Jew-haters and their political allies.

Allies like Rep. Nadler.

Nadler shows he cares more about antisemites than antisemitism.

Nigeria: As 12 states adopt Sharia, nation becomes the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian

One might almost get the idea that Sharia was inhospitable to Christians if we didn’t have all our moral superiors around to assure us that only greasy Islamophobes think such things.

“Report: Nigeria Is the ‘Most Dangerous Place’ to Be a Christian,” by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, November 19, 2023:

ROME, Italy — Nigeria is the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian, according to a report on Christian persecution by International Christian Concern (ICC).

In ICC’s 2023 “Persecutors of the World” report, Nigeria is billed as the world’s top oppressor because of its “endemic” anti-Christian violence.

Radical Muslim terror groups such as Boko Haram and Fulani militants have waged a “20-year genocide against Christians in Nigeria,” the report declared, and as a result “Christian men, women, and children are brutally kidnapped, tortured, and killed every week in Nigeria.”

In just 128 days of 2022, spanning from March 4 to July 6, a total of 55 separate attacks resulted in the deaths of 549 Christians, ICC reported.

The adoption of Sharia criminal law in 12 northern states has exacerbated the ongoing persecution of Christians in the region, the text stated, and meanwhile the Nigerian government and much of the international community “continue to deny religious motivation behind ongoing violence, despite the clear targeting of Christians and churches.”…

Israel’s cabinet has voted to approve a hostage deal with Hamas with would allow the release of at least 50 hostages.

On Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office announced that a deal has been approved by the Israeli cabinet in almost a unanimous vote after five hours of discussion. A majority of the 38 ministers passed the deal, however, three cabinet ministers from the Religious Zionism party voted against it.

In the agreement, Hamas will release 50 hostages back into Israeli hands in exchange for 150 Palestinian prisoners. As part of the deal, Israel must also allow 300 aid trucks per day to enter Gaza from Egypt.

A senior Israeli official reported to the Israeli news organization, Haaretz, that “the plan will see Hamas release 30 kidnapped children, eight mothers and 12 more women during a five-day cease-fire.”

According to The Times of Israel, groups of people taken from Israel will be released 12-13 people per day.

“Not all details of the agreement have been formally released to the public, but an Israeli government official briefing reporter earlier Tuesday said that the deal is expected to see the release of 50 living Israeli citizens, mostly women and children, in groups of 12-13 people per day.”

It is unclear when the deal will be implemented. However, the deal cannot go into place until Thursday, as Israeli judges need time to review the potential legal challenges to the release of prisoners.

The names of the Palestinian prisoners will be released to the public over the next 24 hours. Israeli citizens will have a chance to appeal to the court against their release.

A second phase of this deal could see the terrorist group releasing more women, children and elderly individuals if Israel would extend the ceasefire by several days.

Hospitals in the Jewish State are preparing to receive hostages.

U.S. Soldier Says Army Demands Cash for Gear Ordered Left Behind in Afghanistan

Heidi Vogt
Illegal alien criminals, child traffickers, and potential terrorists violating our laws to cross the southern U.S. border get all kinds of moolah and freebies. But if you’re an American soldier who put everything on the line to defend your country, Uncle Sam would apparently like a thousand bucks for that gear you were told you COULDN’T bring out of Afghanistan.

It has seemed fairly obvious, especially since the disastrous withdrawal that left thousands of Americans and allies stranded in the hellhole of Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, that the Biden administration hates our military. Congressmen were exempted from the federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates, but West Point cadets and military members had to get jabbed or get sacked. The Biden administration is still pouring billions of dollars we don’t have into Ukraine, where a horrifying number of young Ukrainian men have died for no purpose; and the government has new wads of cash to expend on toxic, inefficient, and unreliable “green” energy. But one soldier who is separating from the military found that the Army expected him to cough up between $500 and $1,000 to pay for military gear that the soldier was told he had to leave behind in Afghanistan!

In an undated TikTok video shared on Gettr by Citizen Free Press, a U.S. Army soldier angrily explained his predicament. “[I] wanna share something with you guys today,” he began. “I wanna holler, I wanna scream, I wanna yell, but it won’t do any good.” So why was he so frustrated? “Today is gear turn-in day for me, [I] turn in all the gear that I’ve collected over the last four years of being active duty with the Army, the 82nd Airborne Division.”

The soldier provided the background. “Two years ago, my unit deployed to Afghanistan for the Afghanistan withdrawal,” he explained. “We spent a few weeks over there. It was hectic, it was chaotic, it was disgusting, and it made me very disappointed in our government.” It’s a failure burned into the memories of military members and families who wondered what their friends and family died for in Afghanistan. But it also turned into a personal problem for this soldier.

“Today, I’m reminded of how disappointed I am in our government,” he said. “Go to turn in my gear, they want to charge me 500 to a thousand dollars for gear that I was ordered to leave in Afghanistan two years ago. Because as the last two birds [airplanes] were sitting on the tarmac ready to leave, there wasn’t any room for extra gear, extra weight. Therefore, we were told to leave it.” If you’ve seen pictures of the jam-packed planes out of Afghanistan, with men desperately clinging to the outside in despair, you know what he means.

As usual, some of the enlisted soldiers had more foresight than their leadership. “Some lower enlisted dudes, including myself, were like, ‘no, this stuff is expensive, I’m not leaving this, I’m gonna get charged for this when it comes time to leave,’” the soldier said. “‘Don’t worry, we’re gonna catch you on the back end,’” he was promised. So his gear joined the over $7 billion worth of U.S. equipment (and quite possibly more) left behind for the Taliban to seize, use, and sell.

The Biden administration wasn’t concerned about preventing the terrorist Taliban from obtaining the equipment, but it is asking this soldier for money. “It’s time to get out of the Army and they just wanna — they wanna charge you for that,” the soldier said, highlighting how Taliban-controlled Afghanistan and Ukraine have continued to receive massive amounts of money. “Meanwhile, we can continue to give millions of dollars to the Taliban, we can give billions of dollars to Ukraine, we can give billions of dollars to student debt relief, we can give a bunch of stupid stimulus checks, we can cut those to the American people, but we can’t cover 500 to a thousand dollars for a dude that left gear in Afghanistan, for a dude that left gear in a place that you put me, to begin with.”

And people wonder why families and individuals previously passionately devoted to the military are telling their friends and children not to join up. As the soldier put it, “The government is so stinking backward right now, man. This administration’s last priority is the American people, and inside the American people, their last priority is their soldiers, their Marines, their airmen, their — their Navy. It’s so messed up.”

Unfortunately, the soldier is completely spot on. “I thought today was gonna be bittersweet, getting out, but I’m just so happy to separate. I’m very, very excited to stop serving my government and just getting started serving my country.”

Teachers Unions for Palestine

Peddling Jew-hate to our kids.

On the same day that thousands of rockets rained down on innocent Israeli citizens, photos, and videos emerged of people dancing in the street. This time, those images were not broadcast from Middle Eastern cities but instead filmed right here in the United States.

The examples are well-known. A man in Boston holds up a phone showing a beheaded baby and makes an obscene hand gesture to the camera, recording his laughter. A hijab-wearing woman at a Democratic Socialists of America rally says she’s glad for the Hamas attack and does not consider herself an American. Students in Cooper Union lead a pro-Palestinian rally brandishing anti-Zionist posters, shouting anti-Semitic slogans and terrifying Jewish students barricaded in the library as anti-Israel protestors bang on the doors.

These offensive messages are orchestrated. The people delivering them clearly have been propagandized to hate Jews. Many of their talking points have a not-so-surprising source: radicalized teachers’ unions.

Leftist support for Hamas is grounded in part in years of propaganda, denouncing Western values, from some of the unionized teachers indoctrinating American children. Those activist teachers belong to unions that exploit the profession and muzzle good teachers while working to turn our kids into leftist activists.

Teachers’ unions support Black Lives Matter and introduced the group’s messages into our schools after George Floyd’s death. It should be no surprise, then, that just as BLM Chicago released an image of a Hamas parachuter with the caption, “I Stand with Palestine,” student activists cheer Hamas’s evil, too.

A BLM spinoff, BLM at School, called the violence a “direct result of decades of Israeli settler colonialism . . . occupation, blockade, apartheid and attempted genocide” of Palestinians. The statement’s language is reminiscent of a National Education Association (NEA) “new business item” from 2019 alleging “apartheid,” “gross human rights abuses,” and “atrocities” against Palestinians. BLM at School, including its BLM Week of Action, routinely receives the backing of the NEA and the American Federation of Teachers.

Year after year, unions here and abroad spare no effort to denounce Israel and promote the Palestinians, whose leaders have never renounced their stated objective to annihilate the Jews and Israel. In 2022, for example, the NEA adopted a business item promising to “support and spotlight the efforts of our fellow teacher union colleagues within the Palestinian and Israeli teachers unions affiliated with Education International.” Education International includes 383 teacher groups from around the world; the General Union of Palestinian Teachers (an arm of the Palestine Liberation Organization) and the National Education Union of the United Kingdom are members. According to the Jewish Chronicle, dozens of Jewish teachers resigned from the National Education Union because of its stance on Israel: NEU leaders reportedly visit the radical GUPT and platform GUPT leaders who say that Israel has massacred Palestinians in a way “worse than the Holocaust itself,” and who have “praised murderers as ‘martyrs.’”

Teachers’ unions in America hold similar views. Two years ago, American Federation of Teachers affiliate United Teachers of Los Angeles backed a resolution condemning Israel. Around the same time, United Educators of San Francisco voted to support BDS—boycott, divestment, and sanctions—against Israel, as did Seattle’s public schools. Randi Weingarten, head of the AFT, denounced Jewish critics of her stalling to reopen schools after Covid-19 shutdowns, calling Jews in America part of the “ownership class.” As author Marc Stern noted, had such words come from Louis Farrakhan or a Proud Boys member, they’d be correctly condemned as anti-Semitic.

Union officials may stand strongly against Israel and Palestine, but most teachers disagree with the leadership, like the Jewish teacher in Los Angeles who said that she feared for her safety after the UTLA vote.

Still, the unions, which draw funding for their political activities from teachers’ dues, have no qualms in peddling anti-Israel views.

Teachers’ unions are among the nation’s most influential labor groups. They are famously successful at helping elect legislators who will codify radical union priorities into laws governing classrooms. It’s thus easy to imagine that more young people in America will embrace their ideas about Israel.
