This is Dana Bar-on and Hamas Wants Her Dead

Please watch and distribute.

The last five minutes, by the way, are probably more important than the first five, so you should watch it through.

The enemies of the Jewish people have for centuries claimed that we just love to kill children and innocents.

This is the basis of the deicide claim concerning Jesus Christ – being the ultimate innocent, of course – and the claims concerning Jewish lusting after non-Jewish baby blood throughout the Middle Ages.

It has not gone away, but I am pretty sure that Dana harbors no lust for violence in her heart – unlike her kindly neighbors who hide their weapons behind their own children.

The reason that I bring it up here is because Israel’s response to the shelling of Dana and her family and her neighbors has gotten much of the western-left into an uproar concerning alleged Jewish aggression.

I think, ultimately, that if the local Arabs do not want war then, perhaps, they should not wage war, but if they do wage war than they will have to accept responsibility for the clearly foreseeable outcome of their own violent behavior.

The Day of the Dhimmi is Done and Jewish people are no longer going to be anyone’s punching bag… not even that of our traditional Arab-Muslim masters.

We in the diaspora need to do whatever little we can do to protect her neighborhood and the surrounding regions in the south of Israel near Gaza.

I suppose the main thing that we can do, other than those of us who are young enough to enlist, is simply advocate for the elimination of Hamas.  So long as the people of S’derot and Ashkelon, and smaller communities like Nir Am, are under siege, so all Jews are under siege.

We need to contact our politicians and let them know that we support Protective Edge.

We need to let Israel know that we back the IDF and that we support the elimination of Hamas, on liberal grounds… by any means necessary.

    For my very small contribution, Dana’s video will be shared with some 25 people I know….who have a very small understanding of what is occurring in Israel at the moment. Perhaps it may help a little, perhaps not…though I do believe sharing information in critical. It was a truth telling presentation on Dana’s part!

  2. I am determined to do what little I can do to help get this video out.

    It’s so poignant and heart-rending, but most of all it humanizes Israelis.

  3. I hope that Dana knows that many people know the truth of what has been going on in Southern Israel since 2007. When I was in Israel in 2008 I visited Sderot and spoke to local young people who were under constant rocket fire from Gaza. I am part of a fellowship that supports Israel’s right to exist and to defend herself from those who seek her destruction.
    I also travelled to Judea and Samaria and spoke to Palestinian people there who were Christian and so faced persecution from their Islamic neighbours there. I agree that the death of innocent children is horrific and lay the responsibility for this on Hamas who care more about killing Jews than protecting the Palestinian children. How can Israel trust Hamas and open border crossings when they know that more ammunition will come in to be used against them? I pray that peace will come but I’m not sure how…… /-:

    • I started looking into kibbutz Nir Am and it turns out that Dana’s grandmother, Rachel, was a founding member in 1943 and, as of 2008, was still alive.

      The community has, not surprisingly, evacuated since the recent round of hostilities.

    • Thanks for your comment and thank you for joining us. Please don’t be a stranger and if you can contribute in the way of writing it would be great to hear about Israel from another perspective.

      I spent the day in Sderot with the Director of the Media Centre and as much I as I welcomed seeing and hearing about it, I found it to be very confronting and spent the day looking for the nearest bomb shelter, wondering if I could make it in 15 seconds.
