“There seems to be an excess disease and we will have to take this into account in our recommendation to vaccinate children. Based on 70% of the data received from the hospitals, it seems that the vaccine has been LINKED to myocarditis. There are more such cases in VACCINATED 16-30 y.o. than in unvaccinated.

1/ Many ask – how can it be that the GP and all the coercion that followed passed in Israel so relatively quietly? And this is a question I have been asking myself for a long time as well. I think only today, as a trauma victim, am I able to look back and explain the process:63457Gal G @GalG____·

2/ The process began with prolonged and very severe intimidation and coercion that gradually broke the Israeli public’s opposition to other issues – such as repeated political elections, and a prime minister who divided the public anyway,1424Gal G @GalG____·

Gal Gur @GalGur_1/ Hello, my name is Gal, I am an Israeli citizen, and I want to convey this urgent message to the world: Contrary to what you are told, Israel has not “returned to normal” in any way >>2:06 PM · Apr 28, 2021·Twitter for iPhone5,781 Retweets1,523 Quote Tweets7,751 LikesGal Gur @GalGur_·

2/ Moreover, despite the desire to create a setting as if there was a full and normal routine here – the Israeli Ministry of Health JUST RECOMMENDED TODAY TO EXTENT THE DECLARATION OF A “STATE OF EMERGENCY” in Israel >>197071.8KGal Gur @GalGur_·

4/ If the situation in Israel had “returned to routine thanks to the astounding success of vaccines” then the “state of emergency” would not have continued.65791.8KGal Gur @GalGur_·

5/ In fact, since the beginning of the “vaccination project” there has been only more intimidation and in many ways – even though the closure has been lifted, much more coercion.45461.6KGal Gur @GalGur_·

6/We live under increasing coercion, discrimination, marking and division into two civil societies-according to the “green mark (pass)”. Basic activities such as work, education, health and recreation – have become a luxury for only vaccinated people. And even then – temporary268261.9KGal Gur @GalGur_·

Palestinian access to land and communities located behind the Barrier is subject to a permit or prior coordination regime.

MYTH: The Iran nuclear deal is working as expected.

True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.


Prof. Mohammed Nuruzzaman of the Gulf University for Science and Technology in Kuwaitnoted that the JCPOA has not produced the change in behavior Obama anticipated. “Washington, to its deep frustration, has noticed that it simply made a series of unfounded calculations about Iran,” he said. “Just three months after the deal was concluded, Khamenei closed the door to U.S.-Iranian cooperation by imposing an outright ban on further negotiations with the United States.” Nuruzzaman added that Khamenei also ruled out cooperation with the “Great Satan” on regional issues.768

Iran has only received a fraction of the $150 billion windfall expected when sanctions are eased and assets released, but it is already creating greater chaos in the region. Iran has increased its involvement in backing the Syrian regime, has intervened in the civil was in Yemen against forces supported by Saudi Arabia, and fuels the ambition and arsenal of Hezbollah terrorists in preparation for a future conflict with Israel.

More seriously, as many opponents of the deal predicted, Iran is already cheating on the nuclear deal. Thanks to a leak from German intelligence, we know there have been extensive Iranian attempts to acquire illicit materials, especially goods that can be used in the field of nuclear technology.769

This revelation was followed by the disclosure of a part of the nuclear deal that was never revealed to the public. Instead of Iran being precluded from engaging in nuclear activities for 15 years, we now know that after 11 years, Iran can start replacing its current centrifuges with more advanced ones. As a result, instead of Iran having a one-year breakout time (which, absurdly, was considered a great achievement as opposed to destroying Iran’s capability altogether) to six months or less.770 The Obama administration had this information but failed to disclose it to the American people.

17 Miraculous Israeli Military Victories

Become a Patron!
True Information is the most valuable resource and we ask you to give back.

The Battle of Mishmar HaEmek

On April 4th 1948, the odds were not in Israel’s favor. Outnumbered ten to three and with artillery shells raining down on them, a few hundred Jewish residents and soldiers managed to hold off about one thousand troops of the Arab Liberation Army. The Arabs had attacked the kibbutz, Mishmar Haemek, with the intent of taking it for the strategic location in between Jenin and Haifa. All hope seemed lost, yet surrender was not acceptable. Miraculously, the highly outnumbered Jewish forces managed to go on the offensive, successfully taking over the Arab villages surrounding the kibbutz. This attack led to the Arab Liberation Army’s retreat and was the last significant stand of the Arab Liberation Front in the Israeli War of Independence.

The Battle for Katamon

During the Independence War, Israeli forces reentered Katamon which was a key strategic position inJerusalem that Israel had failed to retake from the  Arab forces controlling it, just two days earlier. This time, the Israeli troops quickly captured the monastery that was being used as the Arab forces’ base of operations and that was the end of the fighting, or so they thought… After a few quiet hours, a fierce counter-attack began. Although they managed to hold off the Arabs, the Palmach began to run low on supplies. Additionally, they suffered countless injuries including Platoon Commander Raful Eitan who was shot in the head. They needed to retreat, but no soldier could be left behind for torture and mutilation. It was decided that those wounded who could not make it out would be put in a room rigged with explosives. Two soldiers would stay behind and detonate the explosives when the Iraqi forces reached the monastery. In the meantime, the enemy forces had also suffered many casualties and were out of Ammo. Their surrender was near, but the Israeli Forces in the monastery had no way of knowing this. The Israeli soldiers were on their way out the door, when suddenly the words “don’t retreat” echoed from a radio that was thought to be broken. The Arabs retreated. The Israelis stayed and reinforcements arrived to treat the wounded. Raful, the platoon commander, survived what should have been a fatal bullet wound to the head and was back in action, half an hour later! This, along with the battle being won, was nothing short of miraculous.

The Battle of Safed

In 1948, as their sovereignty over Palestine was coming to an end, the British were handing over the strategic high points of the city to the heavily armed Arab troops. Outnumbered and outgunned, the Israeli forces struggled battling over Safed for months. In late April, an artillery piece nicknamed “The Davidka” was delivered to the Jews. Surprisingly ineffective, the most notable feature of the Davidka was the tremendous noise it produced. A rumor quickly spread through the Arab ranks that the Jews had acquired an atom bomb, and the entire Arab community left that night. With their exit, morale deteriorated among the Arab troops, and the Haganah was able to secure the city.

Taking Back Mount Zion

During the Independence War, Ira Rappaport’s Israeli platoon fought the Jordanian military for Mount Zionand found themselves surrounded by hundreds with only twenty five bullets left. With a sad end seemingly near, the men agreed to go out with a bang and readied themselves to make good use of every last bullet. Then, just when the small platoon were about to face the inevitable, something incredible happened. The Jordanian soldiers dropped their weapons and began suddenly running away, screaming “ABRAHAM!”. Several years later, Ira would come across a familiar face with an unlikely answer, as to what had actually occurred on that miraculous day. This was a former Jordanian soldier who had fought against Ira on Mount Zion. According to him, his army all witnessed a vision of Abraham defending the Jews in the sky above the Israeli platoon and had no choice, but to drop their weapons.

Saving the Kibbutz

During the War of Independence, twenty-four homemade Israeli armored trucks and cars took a wrong turn on the way to aid a besieged Kibbutz, and crossed and accidentally entered Lebanon. They realized their mistake, when they ran into twenty brand new Syrian armored cars traveling with dozens of Syrian supplies trucks carrying ammunition and artillery. The Israelis immediately fired at the first Syrian truck and amazingly hit a tank loaded with gasoline, causing an explosion, which set fire to the following truck full of hand grenades. One by one, each truck in the Syrian convoy exploded. The loud booms could be heard for miles and the scared surviving Syrians abandoned their cargo. The Israelis had just enough people to drive the captured armored vehicles and Syrian weapons back. By the time they finally reached the Kibbutz, the Arab besiegers had already left. Apparently, after they heard rumors that the Israeli forces invaded Lebanon, they fled back toSyria. And that’s how one wrong turn saved an entire kibbutz. The skeptical may write it off as accidental, but when it comes to Israel there are no accidents.

The Attack on Degania

Shortly after the Independence War, nearly all of the Syrian forces stationed at Tel al-Qasr used two hundred armored Syrian vehicles including forty-five tanks to attack Israel’s oldest kibbutzim; Degania Alef (“A”) and Degania Bet (“B”). With no artillery, about seventy Israelis (most of them were kibbutz members which means they were not regular fighters) had virtually no chance of blocking a Syrian advance, but they wouldn’t go down without a fight.  When the tanks approached Degania Aleph, the minimal Israeli forces began to throw molotov cocktails and behold, an Israeli soldier made a direct hit on the first approaching Syrian tank. Suddenly, the entire Syrian column was turning around and fleeing, possibly believing that Israel had a large multitude of anti-tank weapons. When the Syrians hit Degania Bet, the Israelis were incredibly low on weapons, but quickly assembled two ancient French cannons and used them well against the Syrians’ 75 mm cannons, and 60 and 81 mm mortars. The use of Israel’s little artillery must have really taken the Syrians by great surprise. Why else would they retreat when they had Israel outgunned and outnumbered? Sometimes, the best explanation is the simplest one. Miracles really do happen.

The Preemptive Strike

In 1967, Egypt began moving large forces and heavy artillery to the Sinai desert. Next, Egypt closed the Straits of Tiran to Israeli ships and anyone bringing any military equipment to Israel. This was an act of war. WhenEgypt, Syria and Jordan formed a pact and placed their militaries on high alert for war, it became clear that conflict was inevitable. Israel had horrible odds. However, the Rebbe confidently declared, “G-d is guarding them (the people of Israel)” and “The people of Israel will emerge from the current situation with remarkable success.” And sure enough their success was more than remarkable, it was miraculous. Two hundred Israeli Air Force planes were heading towards Egyptian air bases and should have been shot down. Though flying very low to avoid being detected by Arab radar sites, a Jordanian radar facility was able to detect the unusual amount of aircrafts approaching the sea. Jordan quickly sent out the message, “Inab” (a code for war) to Egypt. Miraculously, however, the Egyptian coding frequencies were changed the very day before and Jordan was not yet updated. Still, the miracle of surprise was not enough. Egypt’s anti-aircraft ammunition was sufficient enough to destroy all the Israeli planes attacking. Miraculously, the order was not given to launch any of those missiles on the Israeli crafts. Israel accomplished her mission and took down half the Egyptian air force: two hundred and four Egyptian planes, the majority of which were in the Sinai Desert readying to attack Israel. With this battle, the Six Day War began.

The Battle of Ammunition Hill

This battle for an extremely fortified Jordanian military post in East Jerusalem was arguably the most furious battle of the Six Day War ‘67. Instead of an air strike that would ensure an israeli victory, they opted for a ground attack, using paratroopers, to minimize the risk of civilian casualties. However, the Israeli forces had incorrect intelligence suggesting the hill was being defended by a single Jordanian platoon, not accounting for the numerous underground bunkers throughout Ammunition Hill that made this battle so incredibly difficult. They sent a third of the amount they should have. This is the kind of serious mistake that should cost the military a battle and possibly the war, but not Israel. Despite their misinformation, Israel miraculously won this battle in the incredible time of just four hours! Ammunition Hill is currently a national memorial site.


To win the Six Day War, Israel needed to retake the Egyptians’ heavily fortified Kusseima outpost. The Egyptians were in control of powerful forces capable of a great counterattack, while the Israelis were weary from a full day of battle. As the Israeli Defence Forces drew near, they heard massive explosions. When they arrived they saw that the Egyptians had destroyed their equipment and abandoned the base, for no apparent reason! As the day continued, it became clear that the Egyptians were hastily abandoning many of their outposts and their supplies along with them. One mysterious report of the battle was from Egyptian soldiers who, when approaching the Israeli border, saw a gigantic hand come out from the sky.  Immediately terrified, they turned around and ran the other way, unable to deny that they were witness to a supernatural event.

Taking Back Jerusalem

Starting June 5th, days of violent battling ensued throughout the old city of East Jerusalem. On June 7th, an eerie silence befell the city when Jordanian firing stopped.  It was too quiet and so Israeli troops were dispatched to check for a trap.  However, their report was of no trap, but of a miracle. The city was empty, save for all the equipment that the Jordanian army left behind.  The Israeli forces entered East Jerusalem, and took the Temple Mount, reaching the Western Wall without even firing a single shot. The people of Israel had returned to the land again and again, but they never retook all of Jerusalem… not until June 8th, 1967.  On this day, Israel not only had the land, but had her holiest city of Jerusalem, for the first time in almost 2000 years. “The Lord says: I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem,” -Zechariah 8:3

The Golan Heights Attack

At the end of the 6 Day War, to retake the Golan Heights, Israel had to win an uphill battle against a heavily entrenched and well fortified  Syrian army, consisting of seventy-five thousand troops. It was estimated that thirty thousand Israeli lives would be lost. Yet on June 9th, after just seven hours of heavy fighting, Israel had miraculously gained control of the main sectors. The next morning, the Israeli forces still expected another day of fierce fighting. The Syrians, however, had other plans. Before the Israelis even got to them, they pulled out of the Golan, fleeing frantically and leaving weapons behind. The mountains, which were once strategically used to murder Jews had fallen into the hands of the Jews. Having completed the final offensive, they signed a ceasefire.

Taking Tel Fakhr

Due to great casualties, an Israeli platoon was left with only twenty-five men. Nonetheless, what was left of the platoon continued to charge Tel Fakhr, in the Golan Heights. Little did they know, Tel Fakhr was maybe the most heavily fortified position Syria had. It had trenches, bunkers, and heavy wiring, machine guns, anti-tank guns, and mortars. Those Israeli soldiers did not stand a chance. That was until a miracle occurred. For no reason that makes any sense, a Syrian captain instructed his men not to fire on the Israelis until they reached the wiring. Before the Syrians knew it, they were too late. “The Jews are already inside, and we’ve taken heavy casualties,” they reported to their captain. Those who remained of the Israeli platoon were victorious, and continued up the Heights.

The result of the miracles of this war was the recapturing of the Western Wall and much of the land Israel has today; an Israeli victory in just six days.

Yom Kippur War

In 1973, while the entire country of Israel fasted for Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement), one hundred thousand Egyptians invaded Israel from the south and over 1,400 Syrian tanks invaded Israel from the north. Although one can say that every war is a miracle, Israel surviving, let alone winning this war, is arguably more miraculous than most of her other war victories. With a significant portion of the Israeli military either in their homes or synagogues, Israel was nearly defenseless. Not only was Israel caught completely off guard and outnumbered, now the vast majority of her soldiers were at their weakest. Initially Syria was gaining territory and logic dictates that Israel should have lost this war, but by the end of the the Yom Kippur War, Israelsomehow managed to come out on top and her weakened troops managed to reach 20 kilometers into Syria!

The Valley of Tears

During the Yom Kippur War, a small impossibly outnumbered Israeli force held back a large portion of the Syrian army, for four days in the Golan Heights. The Syrians were armed with hundreds of tanks, but gave the Israeli forces a false sense of security revealing only a few of their tanks in battle formation for months before the massive attack they had planned. If this attack was successful they could have taken Israel. They had three infantry divisions and over a thousand tanks. At one point, it was said to be just three Israeli tanks against one hundred and fifty Syrian tanks. A sergeant, out of shells wanted to leave his position, but was ordered to stay put. With no ammo, he was up against impossible odds. It would take a miracle to save him; to save Israel, and that’s just what happened.  The Syrians retreated, just when the Israeli force was on the verge of collapse! It has been theorized that the Syrians didn’t know the tanks were out of shells and seeing only a few tanks changing positions, they may have believed that Israel had more tanks than they actually did. However, a Syrian soldier swears an army of Angels surrounded those few tanks Israel had and considering the rate of miracles surrounding the small country of Israel, that could truly be what happened in what is now known as, the Valley of Tears.

The Gas Attack That Never Was

During the Gulf War in 1991, Iraq threatened to use chemical weapons on Israel, a country which was not actively participating in the conflict. As Iraq bombarded Israel with rockets, the country prepared for the likely possibility of a chemical attack. However, one never occurred. Why? Strangely enough, wind patterns changed from the normal directions to blow East from Israel going directly towards Iraq. The U.S. military theorized that the odd weather changes likely served as the major cause for Iraq’s decision not to employ chemical warfare, since the winds would have caused any gas attacks on Israel to harm Iraq as well.

Thirty-Nine Rockets

In 1991, without any Israeli instigation, Iraq tried to provoke Israel into retaliating by firing 39 missiles intoIsrael. Despite this, Israel did not retaliate and miraculously managed to stay out of the Gulf War, much due toU.S. encouragement. Many Iraqi scud missiles were intercepted by Patriot missiles from the U.S, but not all of them.  Still, throughout all of the numerous strikes on the West Bank, there was not a single death. Two missiles disappeared. To this day, nobody has taken credit for preventing their strikes and they have never been found. Another missile struck a garbage dump and for some reason did not explode.  One missile landed just several feet away from a gas station, which could have caused devastation, but incredibly it also did not explode.  Multiple missiles missed Iraq’s intended targets, instead landing in the Mediterranean Sea. One of which had gotten thrown off course by some inexplicable strong winds. There were other missiles that did hit and did actually explode. One of these exploded between two buildings and completely destroyed both of them, but somehow not a single soul was lost in this strike.

Not everyone realized the magnitude of this miracle until tragedy struck when over 40 were killed in a single missile strike on a U.S. marine bunker in Saudi Arabia. Even today, there are sadly parts of Israel that are being hit by terrorist rockets and while miracles do not occur for everyone, the rate of miracles for this country is undoubtedly exceptionally high.

Massacre Averted

During summer 2015, it was discovered that Hamas had been using supplies given by Israel for civil projects, to build tunnels that would enable them to transport weapons and invade Israel. In the weeks before July 17th,Hamas terrorists scouted out the area which one of their tunnels would potentially end, near the farming village of Sufa. It was perfect. At the time, this was a populated area of farmers concealed by tall wheat. Israelwouldn’t stand a chance.  However, the terrorists didn’t count on the apparent power of faith. According to Jewish customs, there is a biblical mandate that requires farmers to harvest before taking a sabbatical year, in which it is forbidden to harvest in Israel. On July 17th, terrorists exited their completed tunnel only to find an empty open land. This attempted attack happen to occur just after the sabbatical year had begun and so, the religious farmers were no longer harvesting. Without the tall wheat for cover, the terrorists were quickly spotted and intercepted by the Israeli Defense Forces. A potential massacre was avoided because of this miracle. And looking at the history of Israel, it seems there are always greater miracles to come.

TOP-SECRET – DHS-FBI Bulletin: No Specific Threats to American Jewish Community

No Specific Threat to American Jewish Community, Despite Recent World Events

  • 5 pages
  • For Official Use Only
  • February 8, 2012


(U//FOUO) This Joint Intelligence Bulletin (JIB) provides law enforcement and private sector safety officials with an evaluation of potential terrorist threats to Jewish organizations, facilities, and personnel in the United states. The information is provided to support the activities of DHS and FBI and to assist federal, state, local, tribal, and territorial government counterterrorism and first responder officials to deter, prevent, preempt, or respond to terrorist attacks in the United States.

(U) Threat overview

(U//FOUO) Heightened tensions between Israel, Iran, and the United States-stemming from threats against Israeli or Jewish targets in Asia and Europe attacks on Iranian nuclear scientists; global economic sanctions against Iran; and press reporting of Israel’s possible intent to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities-have contributed to the perception of an increased threat to the Jewish community worldwide from Iran or its surrogates. Hizballah’s longstanding interest in exacting retribution for the February 2008 death of Imad Mughniyah–a senior founding member of Hizballah who was killed in Syria–may also be fueling these concerns. We have no information, however, to indicate that these recent events have significantly increased the threat to Jewish organizations, facilities, and personnel in the United States.

– (U) On 3 February 2012, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei publicly threatened to retaliate against economic sanctions levied on his country and to support militant groups who oppose Israel.

– (U) On 24 January 2012, the Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff publicly remarked that terrorist groups are trying to conduct attacks against Israeli targets abroad, according to a respected Israeli newspaper, and some Israeli consulates in the United States have reportedly circulated letters warning of escalating threats to Israeli and Jewish facilities. Additionally, letters containing an unidentified, non-toxic white powder were recently mailed to various Israeli consulates in the United States, Europe, and Canada, according to open source reporting.

– (U) Three Azerbaijanis allegedly linked to Iranian intelligence were arrested for plotting to attack the Israeli Ambassador to Azerbaijan and the leader of a local Jewish school, according to late January international media reporting.

– (U//FOUO) An alleged Hizballah plot to attack Israeli or Jewish targets in Asia was reportedly disrupted in Thailand last month, although the targets and timing of the operation are unclear; press reporting suggested a similar threat existed in Europe, but we have no information to indicate that similar plots were directed at the Homeland.

(U//FOUO) Jewish organizations, facilities, and personnel in the United States have been a focus of violent extremists in the past and we assess that they will likely remain a target of violent groups and individuals in the future.

Simon Wiesenthal Center publishes Iran Targets Israel: The Fateful Confrontation

Yesterday, on Yom Kippurthe holiest day for world Jewry, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, stood before the nations of the world as a respected speaker at the United Nations General Assembly in New York.

Not since ancient times—when Queen Esther foiled Haman’s genocidal designs—has a threat this serious to the future of our people emanated from that land.

And it is not just about nuclear weapons.
Long before the current nuclear crisis, Tehran’s blood feud against Israel, her people and her Judaic traditions were a centerpiece of the mullahtocracy ever since the Ayatollah Khomeini seized power.

In his new Simon Wiesenthal Center report,Iran Targets Israel: The Fateful Confrontation, historian Dr. Harold Brackman outlines the multifaceted scope of the Iranian regime’s existential hatred for the Jewish State.

In the report, you will learn about the:

• Evolution of Holocaust Denial and Jew hatred as the cornerstone of Iranian statecraft
• Ayatollah Khomeini’s overthrow of the Shah four decades ago
• Iran’s terror network stretching from Syria and Lebanon to North Korea to Argentina and now in Venezuela
• The current Iranian nuclear threat

Iran Targets Israel: The Fateful Confrontation indicates that there are no easy answers posed by the Iranian regime’s bombast and threatsThe only certainty is that to do nothing—retreating into wishful thinking and anti-Israel scapegoating, will produce unspeakable catastrophic results for the Jewish state and all countries in the Middle East and beyond.


Ahmadinejad: “Israel will be eliminated”  – United Nations,  September 2012

“Iranian President Ahmadinejad should not be speaking from a podium at the UN General Assembly. Instead, he should be in the dock of the International Court of Justice in the Hague for planning and inciting the destruction of Israel, a UN member state in good standing, and genocide against the Israeli people,”

Dr. Harold Brackman, author of Iran Target Israel: The Fateful Confrontation



Cryptome – Iran Targets US Bases in the Region

Iran Targets US Bases in the Region

In this piece of video IRGC’s aerospace force commander makes crucial statement. He is saying we are not going to go to a technical war with our advanced adversary, instead, we have designed specific targeted attacks and scenarios for specific places we would want to hit without hesitation with huge amount of missiles — then the report shows a test attack with mid range and ballistic missiles on a “one-to-one” size “American” base in Kuwait which its specifies obtained by UAVs and “local posts” and explains how the air defense systems will be evaded with simple targeted techniques instead of huge all purpose arsenals.

The page contains references to Iranian military official quotes that they will hit U.S navy carriers in case of a war using missiles and UAVs. At the end of the page there is a Video taken by some of these UAVs. They get close to U.S carriers and “identify” the model of air planes it is carrying or the planes that take off including F-16s.

Considering Iran does not have stand-alone Satellites to have a reliable C4ISR for wide area wars, including the type of operations that is being discussed — there are serious questions whether Iran is exploiting U.S. owned satellite communications for its own purposes under cover of commercial or emergency services? U.S. army’s C4ISR is highly dependent on services such as the ones offered by ViaSat or Inmarsat and there is absolutely no other remotely comparable infrastructure. Adding the Iranian attack on lockheed martin’s “Monster” there are debates within Satellite and ISR production engineers whether Iranians are actually using U.S.’s own “wide area ISR model and technologies” in their attacks?

There are hints given to us that BGAN, the 4th generation of Inmarsat infrastructure, that claims military grade security have been exploited several times recently by Hezbollah operative’s in Syria and Russian ISR battleship floating around that same area since many inter-operations between NATO elements and U.S. army is based on BGAN. Public documents are available on Inmarsat’s government services site, last I checked. BGAN services are reported accepted and working — source is a reporter just came back from Tehran’s NAM, she broadcast live Video feed using BGAN. We have experiences with Iran that shows when they cannot control or monitor something, they do their best on jamming and disruptions. They are not even officially shy about it anymore. We believe there might be a serious dark hole in U.S.’s infrastructure and least we can certain about it Hezbollah (=Iran) and Russians have the capabilities to exploit these types of holes.

“Farsnews” is one of Iran’s semi-official News Agencies that has tight ties with Power elements, including IRGC and MOIS .

The page is reporting IRGC’s aerospace commander, General Hajizadeh, said in an interview tonight “We consider American bases as a part of American Soil, not as a part of Qatar -Bahrain and Afghanistan”. The interview ends with this statement: “we will attack these bases in case of a war, no doubt”.

Iranian official says an in interview that starting from tonight up until undetermined time, Google’s services including Gmail will be Filtered in Iran. He added that the decision was made due to huge number of calls people made to remove contents related to recent insults on Prophet Mohammad. Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Blogspot and wordpress were already Filtered in Iran for a couple of years.


Unveiled – How Iran Spies on Internet Users and Counterspy

How Iran Spies on Internet Users and Counterspy


A sends:

Refer to If you go to the site from Iran, it resolves to an IP in the 
famous Iranian "national internet" with IPs starting with 10.10.X.X. The IP and 
website belong to the Ministry of Islamic Guidance. Therefore, not only Police and 
Intelligence can monitor online behavior, through this trick, another entity that is
involved in Iran's internet infrastructure can monitor and learn who goes to filtered 
websites or make attempts to communicate with those sites. 

More interestingly is below. The stupid staff who registered the IP and domain are 
using Gmail and Yahoo accounts to maintain their access to the domain. Since I happen 
to know getting into someone's Yahoo account is easier than drinking water (no need 
for showing the tech here), there is opportunity for rogue elements to monitor Iranian 
user's behavior, partially and ironically, the people who are forcing people to use 
"local national" email systems such as, are using Gmail and Yahoo 
themselves. :)

Unveiled – An Israeli – Iranian War: The Iranian Perspective

What are Tehran’s goals in a confrontation with Israel? Why have the Iranians been prepared to fight for so many years? A special analysis by Colonel (Res.) Ronen Cohen
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Photo: AP)

“The IDF is ready to move against Iran the minute it receives the green light,” declared IDF Chief of Staff, Lieutenant General Benny Gantz in an interview broadcast on Israel’s 64th Independence Day. “The Iranians are determined to build a nuclear weapon while they continue to dupe the international community,” Minister of Defense Ehud Barak added the following day.

Israel’s leaders face a series of existential questions: should Israel attack Iran or pursue the diplomatic track? When, if ever, is the right time to launch an attack? How should it be executed? How will Iran’s leaders react to an attack on their nuclear facilities?

The day after

The most likely day-after scenario, as the international media sees it, is a devastating Iranian response based mainly, though not entirely, on its long-range missile arsenal. This attack would be coupled with terrorist strikes against Jewish and Israeli targets abroad, and backed by Hezbollah – Iran’s proxy in Lebanon.
On the international front, Iran could wreak havoc on the global economy through fluctuations in oil prices, even though this could also ultimately harm Iran (it is unclear whether Iran or the West would suffer more in an oil war).

Iran could respond with a four-way campaign with long-ranged counter-fire against Israel, terror activity on Israel’s borders, attacks on Israelis and Jews overseas, and a limited conflict in the north of Israel.

Israel is fully aware of the implications of the day after, but senior political-security figures have increasingly alleged that Iran’s response capabilities are limited due to international constraints and its distance from Israel. From our perspective, Israel could withstand an Iranian retaliation, just as it has withstood missile attacks in the past.

In his Independence Day speech, the chief of staff threw the proverbial ball into the political decision-makers’ court, taking careful aim at the prime minister and minister of defense. The question is whether Israel is up to the challenge of a day-after scenario that is different from the one the media projects.

If Israel initiates a military strike and Iran responds, Israel will face a security challenge of a magnitude that it has never experienced. It will be the first time in history that Israel faces a non-Arab state with an entirely different culture, mentality, and historical legacy. The same is true for the Iranians – for the first time they will be confronting Israel and the West.

Furthermore, Israel has never carried out a military attack against a state on the brink of nuclear capability. An attack against Iran would be far different than the bombing of the nuclear reactor in Iraq or the air strike against the reactor in Syria (attributed to Israel). For Israel, the element of surprise is already gone, which in effect, has already enabled the enemy to carry out a series of steps. These steps range from instilling a state of awareness into their nation, political-strategic maneuvering, and preparations for both an offensive and defensive military response.

Presenting a regional objective

When we examine the rationale behind an Iranian response, we should assume that the regime in Tehran will make every effort to cause the “Zionist entity” such severe damage that it would restore the Islamic Republic to the lofty position of a regional superpower. Iran’s choice of targets and its method of attack will be a regional and international display of Iranian strategy and military might. Iran cannot allow the campaign to end with it appearing ruined and humiliated. Another Iranian goal will be to safeguard its nuclear project so that it can quickly resume operations if damaged.

An Iranian strike would probably be directed against Israel’s population centers, since the Iranians believe that Israel would be hard-pressed to cope with a protracted campaign of attrition that weakens the home front.

Upon examining these goals against the scenario established by the media, we can see that the scenario the media portrays would not attain Iran’s objectives. What then is the modus operandi that Iran will choose to meet its goals?

A different kind of society

To understand how the Iranian leadership operates, we must go back to the 1980-1988 Iran-Iraq War. Despite the extreme differences between that war and a possible Israeli-Iranian confrontation, it would be worthwhile to look at the way the Ayatollah regime, still in its infancy, waged its first war.

At the time, following a break in relations with the US, the Iranian regime was isolated and bereft of superpower backing. Iraq received lavish military assistance from the Soviet Union, while Europe exerted pressure on Iran for disrupting the flow of oil caused by the war. During the long and bitter conflict, Iran’s Republican Guards displayed a high degree of patience, endurance, and determination. The nation proved that it could weather massive attacks from unconventional weapons (poisonous gas) and retain its trust in its leadership. This is the heritage that Khomeini bequeathed to the Iranian people: fighting and winning against all odds.

Those that believe Iran’s geographical distance from Israel will limit the Iranian response (the Iranians will mainly engage in long-range counter fire) fail to take into account the Iran-Syria-Hezbollah axis that enables Iran to bridge great distances. Republican Guard ground forces could be deployed along Israel’s northern border and even engage the IDF in a protracted guerilla campaign.

On the frontlines

Israel must also take into account Hezbollah’s role in such a scenario, since Israel could be tested in an unprecedented event.

For the first time, Hezbollah would be completely subordinate to Tehran’s leadership and the Iranian military command even though it is a Lebanese organization supported by the country’s Shiite population. In an Israeli-Iranian war, Hezbollah would take orders from Iran in its first and perhaps only real opportunity to repay the enormous debt that it owes to Iran for building up its military strength.

Another possibility is that Iran could launch a preemptive strike and place responsibility on Hezbollah, since Tehran has no interest in becoming entangled in hostilities prior to an Israeli attack.

After an Israeli strike, the scope of Hezbollah’s rocket fire into Israel’s depth could parallel the developments in the fighting between Israel and Iran. Israel should not be surprised if this time the rocket and missile fire is entirely different from the past. Instead of gradual escalation at the outset, Hezbollah could unleash a massive missile barrage into the heart of Tel Aviv.

Not today or in a few days

Israel has to proceed with great caution in light of Iran’s policy and culture. A long and bitter guerilla struggle may ensue, one that could last for a year or a number of years against Iranian combat units on Israel’s northern border.

These scenarios are not the product of an imagination run wild, but logical directions that Iran could take as it aspires to realize its goal to become a regional superpower.

Israel Defense – Bulgarian PM: “Assailant was a suicide bomber with a US passport”

Bulgaria: Hospitalized Israelis Being Evacuated, Number of casualties rises to 8

Terror attack in Bulgaria: the number of casualties in yesterday’s terror attack against the tourist bus in the airport in Burgas, Bulgaria, has risen to eight. One of the wounded persons died of his wounds at the hospital in the early hours of the morning. Six of the casualties are Israelis. Hercules helicopters belonging to the Israeli Air Force (IAF) have begun the operation to evacuate the wounded for hospitalization in Israel.

A team of Israeli doctors departed to Bulgaria over the night, in order to assist local medical teams in dealing with the large number of wounded persons, which currently stands on more than 30. Some of the wounded are suffering from burns and injuries that are characteristic of terror attacks.

The investigation of the event is continuing. Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov told local media that despite previous assessments, the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber, and not a remotely-operated explosive charge. According to Borisov, a US passport was found on the terrorist’s body, apparently forged. Representatives of the CIA and FBI US intelligence agencies are involved in  investigation of the attack.

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blamed Iran yesterday as being behind the terror attack. Israel’s Minister of Defense clarified that “we will do everything to reach the perpetrators and those that sent them.” The White House published an announcement by US President Barack Obama that stated that the US will cooperate with Israel in investigating the attack, and expressed his condolences over the attack.

ISRAEL DEFENSE – Members of DFLP Squad Arrested

Released for publication: the Shabak, in cooperation with the Israeli Police’s section for special duties in the Jerusalem district, have uncovered a terror squad in Northern Jerusalem’s Issawiya neighborhood. The squad is suspected of throwing stones at security forces and aggravated assault against local residents.

A gun and magazines were found during the investigation, which one of the squad members used in various activities carried out in the neighborhood on behalf of the Front for the Liberation of Palestine (DFLP). In addition, another operative admitted to acquiring and possessing a gun.

Popular terror activity is routinely carried out in the Issawiya neighborhood, which includes throwing stones and incendiary bombs as well as physical attacks against Israeli citizens and security forces entering the neighborhood or locations near it.

One of the arrested suspects being investigated is Medhat Tariq Ahmad Muhammad, known as a senior DFLP official in Jerusalem, who was previously arrested for carrying out a shooting attack.

ISRAEL DEFENSE – Preparing for Fires and Structural Collapse

The defining event that changed the face of firefighting in Israel was the December 2010 fire in the Carmel Mountains. Forty-four people died, and 6,177 acres of woods were destroyed.

Four months after the devastation, the air force established a firefighting squadron whose six aircraft are presently maintained by Elbit Systems. In addition, Israel Fire and Rescue Service ordered 88 firefighting vehicles. “There are several types of firefighting vehicles,” says Fire Service Commissioner, Chief Shahar Ayalon.

“Some of the vehicles are undergoing supply processes and need to undergo several changes. We’ve also published a tender worth 12 million NIS for personal fireman protection equipment including fireproof proximity suits, helmets, shoes, and coats. Additionally, we bought equipment from around the world, and are working with four to five international companies. We’re going to change the firefighter uniform, and even have a new symbol for the firefighters. We are also currently testing the simulators that exist around the world, and have allocated a sum of more than $10 million. In addition, we are constructing a new instruction facility in Rishon LeZion.

Following the 2010 fire, Shahar Ayalon came to head the Fire Service after serving in the Israeli Police as district commander and deputy inspector general. According to Ayalon, the far-reaching changes within the fire service are also intended for firefighters participating in mass disaster relief, such as wide-ranging missile attacks and natural disasters.

In his opinion, the situation is far from satisfactory. Ayalon notes that during the 2011 rocket attacks from Gaza, it was impossible to send a vehicle from Ashkelon to handle a fire that burst out in the nearby town of Gan Yavneh, which was a result of administrative problems (the town belonged to the more distant district of Rehovot). It took a fire vehicle no less than 20 minutes to make it from there. According to him, there remains a severe shortage in firefighting stations across the country.

“We’ve conducted a threat reference with Israel’s Technion and the National Emergency Authority on how many firefighting vehicles and how many firefighters are needed to provide a response for Israel,” says Ayalon. “The interim statement indicates that an additional 40-60 stations are needed on top of the 100 that already exist. We want to lower the response time. In 2010, our average response time was 14 minutes. In the US, the standard is five minutes for the first team, and an additional five minutes for a second team. In Europe, it’s between 8-10 minutes – we want to approach this time.”

“Our current budget is 700 million NIS. I assume that after the reform, the budget will cross the one billion NIS mark. There won’t be any choice but to construct 50 more stations, and this will have to be planned in the framework of the multi-year budget.”

War Scenarios

“The firefighting system responds to 80,000 situations a year, nearly half of which are tied to rescue and extraction missions,” explains Ayalon. “We have 15 urban rescue units that can enter wreckage sites and rescue people from buildings, including two new units in Be’er Sheva and Netanya. These units are comprised of young and well-trained firefighters. We conduct the courses with RESQ1, a company of military veterans who have run these training exercises around the world for years.

“We also send 15 fighters each year to France to undergo advanced studies in rescuing people trapped in stormy weather. The scope of rescue is the same as the scope of firefighting, even though people think we only extinguish fires. In reality, we engage in rescues, deal with dangerous substances, and also fight fires.”

What will happen during a war? After all, it’s the IDF’s Rear-Area Headquarters that primarily deal with search and rescue.

“In a period of emergency and war, the Rear-Area HQ is also responsible for the Fire Service. The threat to the home front switched to a threat of missiles, and we are preparing for a state of demolished buildings in which the firefighters will have to handle both fires and structural collapses.

“We also take into account damage to strategic factories that house dangerous materials, and we intensively practice situations of container and fuel reserve impacts. We carry out risk assessments with the factories and introduce them to the forces. We have an organized doctrine that is also suitable for missile scenarios.

“We built an operations branch that works, practices, and immediately responds to events, reinforces units, and does all the required operations that are similar to a military system.

“For emergency scenarios, we purchased 24 containers equipped with clothing, food, and water. It costs a lot of money, but we placed these types of emergency containers at each station. As soon as there’s a war, we can increase our number of fire departments and our launches by 40% by taking out fire trucks to all sorts of launch points, thus bringing the firefighters closer to response locations. We settle in well-known locations and are capable of emergency deployment that increases manpower by having 1,200 firefighters in the reserve forces join the regular military.

“In emergency scenarios, we are the first ones alerted and the first to reach the scene. If it’s wreckage, we focus on rescuing lives and extracting whoever we can out of the rubble. Once the Rear-Area HQ’s rescue unit arrives, we pass the responsibility on to them and leave the scene. We are the immediate response for the golden hour – the time when the chances of finding survivors is the highest.”

TOP-SECRET – Silver Shadow to Unveil New Assault Rifle

Silver Shadow will present a new weapon prototype during the Eurosatory exhibition in Paris.

A new player in the arsenal of Israeli weapons? Silver Shadow, the manufacturer of the Israeli-produced Gilboa assault rifle, will soon be presenting another product from the Gilboa line of weapons.

The product is a new assault rifle, with a double barrel – a unique and first of its kind among Israeli-produced weapons. The new weapon increases firepower and has improved marksmanship, but still takes standard ammunition.

The company will present the new weapon at the Eurosatory exhibition in Paris during June 2012. The exhibition is one of the most prominent exhibitions in the world for the fields of defense and security, and takes place every two years in France.

The largest defense companies in the world present their products at the exhibition; the Israeli pavilion, which will feature dozens of companies, is considered one of the most prominent ones at the show.

The Truth about the Iranian UAV

Israel is trying to discover the extent to which the Iranian announcement regarding the development of a new UAV named “Shaparak” is true.

According to the Iranians, the UAV has a take-off weight of 100 kg and can carry a payload weighing up to 8 kg. In addition, the statement says that the UAV has an endurance of 3.5 hours in altitudes of up to 4 km.

In recent years, Iran has invested considerable efforts in developing UAVs. However, Israel is assessing that its achievements are few.

Currently, Iran is exploiting situations in other countries in order to garner operational experience with their UAVs. As was previously revealed in IsraelDefense, there is proof that Iran has operated UAVs on behalf of the Syrian regime.

According to reports from sources following Iran’s involvement in the Syrian Civil War, an Iranian Pahpad UAV was sighted in the past few weeks in the skies near Homs, Syria, which is considered the most advanced in Syria’s arsenal.

In the past, Tehran has claimed that the UAV possesses stealth qualities. While Western elements doubt this claim, they say that it is undoubtedly an advanced UAV, at least with regards to its aerodynamic configuration.

Iran has previously supplied Hezbollah with self-produced UAVs, and the country has previously developed various basic UAVs as well, including the Ra’ad and Nazir. Four years ago, Iran’s defense minister claimed that his country successfully developed a UAV with a flight range of approximately 1,000 km.

Israel has experience with simple Iranian UAVs launched from southern Lebanon by Hezbollah towards Israel’s northern region. In June 2006, the IAF intercepted a suicide UAV carrying a payload of explosives. The Ababil UAV is a copy of a Russian UAV that is produced in Iran. It first breached Israel’s borders on November 7, 2004, and circled for five minutes over the region of Nahariya, photographing the area with a basic photographic system installed onboard. The Ababil UAV has a flight speed of nearly 300 km/h and has a maximum range of 240 km.

Israel is assessing that advanced Iranian UAVs have already been transferred to Hezbollah. The operation of the Iranian UAV in Syria is part of Tehran’s assistance fo Assad’s regime, as well as an Iranian opportunity to operate it in real conditions.

The Shabak Show Terrorists Returning to Terrorism

Over the past few months since the conclusion of the Shalit exchange deal, the Shabak has been working to ensure that the prisoners released in the framework of the deal have not returned to terror activities. Two examples from recent months prove that not all of them have decided to abandon the path of terrorism, and have instead, returned to their previous terror activities.

Shabak announced that at the end of March 2012, the Judea Military Court sentenced Daoud Hilo, a Ramallah resident and one of the prisoners released in the Shalit deal, to 44 months in prison. Hilo was convicted based on his admission of guilt for attempting to trade war equipment in January 2012. This was a month after his December 8, 2011 release in the framework of the second phase of the Shalit deal.

Having been previously sentenced to 40 months in 2010 (for which he spent 23 months in prison), Hilo’s conviction cancelled the mitigation he received (approximately 17 months) in the framework of the Shalit deal, and now he will return to serve the entire duration of his sentence. Along with a fine of 2,000 NIS, Hilo was also sentenced to 12 months probation for three years from the day he is released, for the felony he was sentenced for in this case or any other firearms felony.

Another example of a Shalit deal prisoner returning to terrorism was found when the Shabak revealed the attempts of Omar Abu-Sneineh, a Hamas operative from Hebron, to recruit operatives in the Judea and Samaria region for the purpose of an abduction attack. Having been banished to the Gaza Strip in the framework of the deal, Abu-Sneineh’s planned abduction was intended for bargaining for the release of prisoners. A Fatah operative serving a life sentence for murder, he crossed the lines into the ranks of Hamas while in prison.

Abu-Sneineh, who was released in October 2011, sent a memory card to his family in the Judea and Samaria region that contained detailed instructions on how to carry out the abduction attack. His intent was to have it later reach the hands of the operatives he would recruit.

The memory card, which was obtained by Shabak, included, among other things, instructions for the operatives on how to behave after abducting an Israeli. The card contained instructions such as: “refrain from hiding (the abducted person) in abandoned areas, caves, or groves, unless it’s a body or the head of the abducted person. If dealing with a live person, which needs to be reached at least once a week in order to bring food and water, it’s best to hide him in a house, an agricultural farm, a work place, or someplace similar.” Abu-Sneineh also listed instructions for obtaining firearms and for recruiting operatives into the service of the terror organizations.

Shabak has stated that the organization “will continue its mission to foil intentions to carry out terror attacks against Israeli targets, And will do everything in its power to bring those involved in terrorism to justice. This includes all the prisoners released in the deal for the freeing of Gilad Shalit that have returned to terror activity.”

Israel Head of Air Attacks – Israel’s Long Arm – Col. Nissim

The heightened tension with Iran over its nuclear program is forcing the Israeli Air Force (IAF) to rethink its special needs.

Colonel Shlomo Nissim, head of the IAF’s Aircraft Engineering Department, says, “Our goal is to be at the forefront of technology. We have outstanding people with brilliant ideas, whose professionalism is their calling. Their dedication is expressed in achievements in every field.”

One of the department’s recently completed projects is flexible fuel tanks that extend the range of Yasur (Ch-53 Sea Stallion) and Yanshuf (UH-60 Black Hawk) helicopters. The IAF designed the fuel tanks, and an Israeli company manufactured them.

The project has aroused considerable interest, especially after the announcement of the establishment of the IDF Depth Command, headed by Major General (Res.) Shai Avital. This command is officially charged with planning and implementing long-range, multi-arm special operations in the enemy’s strategic depth. This requires special operational and tactical equipment, and one of the basic tools is extended-range cargo helicopters.

Col. Nissim’s department is constantly improving the performance of IAF planes and helicopters, but not only in the Iranian context. One of the department’s developments that elicited considerable international attention is called the “smart patch.” The patch is glued to a smooth surface in an aircraft suspected of suffering from rapid structural fatigue. The band-shaped patch has microelectronic components that track the structural fatigue and relay the data to mechanics, thus eliminating the need to disassemble the aircraft for examination.

The engineering department is also working on a computerized system that will collect all the flight data from IAF helicopters for analysis. “Today, pilots fill out a questionnaire on their extreme flight maneuvers. However, the method is cumbersome, irksome, and inaccurate. This system will facilitate a new way to track aircraft fatigue. When development is completed, the system will be installed in all IAF helicopters,” Col. Nissim says.

Nissim also explained the IDF’s reasons for purchasing new Hercules transportation planes. “The IAF chose the lengthier model of the C-130J because it has an enhanced storage capacity. Naturally, we’ll be installing a number of our own systems in the aircraft, but the less I speak about them, the better.”

In addition to the procurement of new planes, the older Hercules, which has been in IAF use since the 1970s, will get a new lease on life.

According to Nissim, “The main section of the wings will be replaced to prevent dangerous cracking. Israel Aerospace Industries will put on new wings that will guarantee the planes have many more years of flight.” As new Hercules turboprop transport planes enter operational service, and some of the older ones continue flying, others – mainly the C-130Es – will be deactivated.

The Yasur helicopter has been in the IAF for many years, perhaps it too needs to be retired?

“There are no current alternatives to a heavy helicopter. We keep our Yasur fleet in top working condition through constant maintenance and upgrading. The Yasur will be flying at least until 2024. Nevertheless, the IAF is looking at the Sikorsky CH-53K helicopter, which is still in the planning stages in the US. However, it won’t be ready for export until 2019, which is only one of its problems. The price tag per aircraft is over $100 million.”

A new system that recently joined the Yasur fleet is the automatic hovering system. This system, a product by DRS, is connected to all of the helicopter’s sensors that monitor the aircraft’s altitude, speed, and other data. When a pilot reaches the desired altitude, he activates the hovering system and removes his hands from the flight control system. From that moment on, the system takes control, and the helicopter is as stable as a rock. The IAF played a key part in the system’s development.

The hovering system is being integrated into Yanshuf helicopters. “We test every system that can improve mission performance,” says Col. Nissim.
