#Hamas caught on foreign TV camera firing a rocket from within a densely populated civilian area!

Still need proof that #Hamas is using Civilians as #Human_Shields? That it deliberately uses densely populated areas and especially such with people who will be considered “better” (or more important) victims such as hospitals, schools, reporters?

This Footage was caught by an Indian TV crew. Note the dates – yesterday and today *after* Israel withdrew its forces!!

2 Things that stand out:
1. Gaza isn’t all ruins and shambles – check out the nice hotels, clean streets and the quiet all around!
2. Hamas is using civilian areas to fire its rockets from… unprovoked…

Safely away from #Hamas grip: Media cover-up of Hamas crimes becomes clear


Earlier this week Israel and IDF were blamed (again and as usual) for the death of some 30 children in a missile “attack” on the Shifa hospital and the nearby Al-Shati neighborhood. The Media took to Hamas’ side immediately. 2 days ago, an Italian Reporter, now free and safe from Hamas’ grip decided to tell the truth:


This one reads: “I confirm now that I am out of Gaza, the massacre of children yesterday was not Israel’s blame. What IDF says is true. It was a Hamas missile”.   

This one reads: “Colleagues in Shati say and show: after the death of children yeaterday in Gaza, Hamas or another faction operatives arrived to clear up the debris of the rogue missile”.

And if you don’t believe us this tweet in English says it all…


So, what does it say about all the media coverage coming out of Gaza, when you see live proof that journalists are threatened (why else would he say “free from Hamas retaliation“) and bullied? How can you still trust what your mainstream media is showing you?

You can’t!

The Real “Siege” of the Gaza Strip (Hint: NOT by Israel!)

Once again Khaled Abu Toameh has the courage and wits to expose the world to facts, from the other side of the fence. Khaled Abu Toameh is an award winning journalist who also happens to be an Arab Muslim.

In this latest article he writes: “Recent calls for lifting the “siege” on the Gaza Strip have ignored that Hamas’s main demand, even more than for an airport or seaport, is that Egypt reopen the Rafah border crossing, the Palestinians’ only gateway to the Arab world.

You see, Gaza may indeed by under siege, but it is not by Israel. It is from the other side, by their own brothers and neighbors – Egypt. And the Egyptians have good reasons for keeping it that way.  Another quote from the article: “Egypt’s Rafah terminal with Gaza, however, has been closed most of the time since Hamas seized control over the Gaza Strip in July 2007, while border crossings with Israel, such as Kerem Shalom and Erez, have remained open.”

So next time you identify with the poor “besieged” Gazans, take a map first, before you blame Israel.

Co-existence? or Apartheid?

“Co-existence”, peaceful and even friendly co-habitation of different ethnic, religious and other groups, would be the ideal status, unfortunately never in the world fully achieved. There is a lot to do to reach this ideal state of affairs, and there are not many states on earth where so much has been done with so much success within such a short time as in Israel.

Co-existence’s antonym, “Apartheid”, (literally separateness), would mean racial discrimination, defined by the UN as “…any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, color, descent, or national or ethnic origin…”. Unfortunately, by this definition apartheid is ‘alive and well’, not only in the third world, but to some extent also in the West – but not in Israel.


Though of course not perfect, in fact, Israel is probably one of the best examples of good co-existence against all odds, and one of the least racist states on earth. Let’s see the facts. To begin with, Israel’s Jewish population is mixed from a hundred countries with as many languages. Israel’s Declaration of Independence ensures complete equality of social and political rights to all inhabitants irrespective of religion, race, or gender. Israeli Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Druze and other minorities enjoy the same civil and political rights as Jews. They serve in the Knesset and in the High Court of Justice and can speak freely against the government. Israel’s 1.2 million Arab citizens live in relative wealth and enjoy human rights far above their brothers in any of their 23 Arab countries.


The castigation of Israel as an apartheid state is a sophisticated propaganda tool, without much basis, used both to libel Israel and to cover up to the abhorrent human right records and racism of Israel’s principal accusers like  Sudan, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Libya, the Palestinians and Iran. Even in that alleged bastion of racial freedom, Britain, the BBC reported that society is becoming more divided by race and religion, fully fledged ghettos happen there, and the Independent Race and Refugee News reported 52,694 racist incidents in 2004 and alarming increase also in racially motivated murders.


Israel has demonstrated historically unprecedented goodwill towards to along its whole existence, when while being involved since its birth in existential wars with Arabs, has never exerted any limitations or punitive measures on its Arab minority akin with the enemy – like all other countries on earth have invariably done.

Israel invited and has been absorbing lovingly and without any material gain 100,000 Ethiopians with Jewish roots; poor and oppressed black Africans – unprecedented again in the history of mankind. Proportionally it would be welcoming 5 million black Africans in the US or in Europe within a few years.

Tiny Israel was the first to give home to hopeless Vietnamese “boat-people” in the 70-s and since 2005 similarly to refugees from genocide in Darfur, Sudan, mostly black Moslems. Several newly created Israeli voluntary organizations are providing care and assistance to them.

An article in News.Scotsman.com of March 4, 2006 tells the personal story of a Darfurian, working in a kibbutz. Despite being jailed for a year before reaching that kibbutz, Sanka is remarkably upbeat about living in the Jewish state. “The Israelis are really a free people, with an open mind,” he said. “The Jewish people I’ve met understand my plight. Funnily, for the first time in my life here in Israel I feel free”


Unfortunately some greedy politicians and frustrated academicians make a living of libeling Israel as ‘apartheid’. But, let’s leave alone theoretical arguments. Within a few hours spent in the quarter-million strong Israeli city of Haifa one can visit a few shopping centers, the city’s best hospitals, a children’s Luna Park and the Haifa beach; to see Muslim and other minorities strolling and mingling leisurely everywhere. You yourself can judge and choose between the validity of actual co-existence in Israel or of singling out Israel as the “apartheid state”.

George Galloway wants an “Israel free” Bradford – we say he should have it!

Yes you read this right… MP George Galloway should really have his “Israel free” “Jews free” Bradford. Galloway says he wants no Israelis, no Jews, no Israeli goods, no tourists and no academics in Bradford.

We say – good for you Dear Galloway! Here’s a list to make life easy for you – the following are “Israeli goods” that you should immediately throw out, not just from your home and office but the whole town! Pay close attention!

(Full list and source: http://freeplanetickettonorthkorea.tumblr.com/boycott-israel)

Part One – Technology and Food

First, remove all Intel Pentium and Celeron computer processor chips from personal computers (desktops, laptops and notebooks) as these were either developed or manufactured in Israel.

Note that the revolutionary new Ivy Bridge processor will be manufactured in Israel. Any computers running the Windows XT operating system must be turned off immediately as this was developed in Israel. All current Microsoft operating systems are not to be used as Microsoft is heavily reliant on its Israel R&D centre.

Step 2. Any computers that still work need to have their anti-virus software and personal firewalls removed as this technology originated in Israel. The organisation’s firewall will also need to be switched off. Staff should no longer open external emails as most of these will be infected with viruses. No outgoing emails can be sent. The algorithm (code) that’s used today for sending e-mails, was made by an Israeli who worked at the Ben-Gurion University in Be’er-Sheva in 1980.

Step 3. Discard all mobile phones, as this technology was developed in Israel, where the first mobile phones were manufactured. Mobile chip technology from a single Israeli company has now been installed in over 100 million devices. Only top-level staff may retain mobile phones for emergency situations. However the use of SMS (Texting) is expressly forbidden as this facility was developed in Israel. No 4G devices can be used, as the chipset is Israeli.

Step 4. Turn off your voice-mail service and delete any recorded messages. Israeli companies invented the voice-mail system. If someone you do not know answers your phone-call, then hang up. Israeli call-centres and call-centre technology is in widespread operation in the UK.

Step 5. Before accepting any printed material, check that the supplier has not used the Israeli device that might have saved up to 50% of the ink used.

Step 6. At home, do not use Facebook as many in-built and add-on applications are Israeli-developed. Do not watch videos on the Internet as the platform used to upload them may be from AOL and hence from an Israeli company. Do not use the Internet to search for answers to your questions as this may involve use of an Israeli-developed search engine. Better to remain unenlightened.

Step 7. On your TV or home entertainment centre, do not use Video On Demand (VOD) to watch movies as you may inadvertently see an advert displayed usingIsraeli software. Do not purchase any games devices as these are likely to use Israeli technology.

Step 8. Do not read books using an e-book as this may contain Israeli technology. Do not use data storage as it may have been developed at Israel’s storage technology R&D center.

Step 9. Do not buy an electric car as it is likely to be powered with an Israeli battery or use Israeli developed charging mats. Continue to sit in traffic knowing that you are polluting the environment and financing oil-rich despotic regimes.

Turning to food and drink, all food outlets on the organisation’s premises must dispose of cherry tomatoes, which were developed in Israel. Staff must ensure that no cherry tomatoes are included in sandwiches brought into office premises. The ban also applies to honey and any products derived from honey. Israel has developed solutions to the worldwide problem of bee-colony collapse, so that any products derived from bees might only be available now due to an Israeli invention.

Avoid drinking any of the world-recognised award-winning Israeli wines. Do not consume homemade drinks from Israeli-manufactured household drinks machines.

Avoid any fruit from South Africa or Peru as produce from these countries is being marketed with Israeli brand names.

No agricultural products from the following areas must be consumed as they use water irrigation and agricultural technology provided directly from Israel. This includes most of Africa, China, India, Indonesia (a Muslim country), Nepal and many others.

Much fruit and vegetables (including organic) imported into the UK has been enhanced using Israeli technology. This may save millions of people from starving around the world, but is not a good reason for you to eat it. To be safe, only eat fruit and vegetables that you have grown yourself using seeds that have been in your family for generations.

Part Two – Staff Health.

Destroy all personal medication. Israel’s Teva Pharmaceuticals, the largest generic drugs company in the world, will have manufactured many of your medicines.  Staff with the following illnesses will need to take specific precautions.

Cancer – do not take any form of medication or treatment. Israeli scientists have been working at the forefront of oncology for decades.

AIDS and HIV – beware; researchers at Israel’s Weizmann Institute or Hebrew University developed or improved AZT and Hypericin-based drugs; they have also developed a treatment that destroys HIV-infected cells without damaging healthy ones.

Diabetes – do not measure or inject Insulin using the devices developed by Israeli scientists.

Multiple Sclerosis – stop taking Copaxone, one of the most efficient medicines and the only non-interferon agent, as Teva developed it.  Don’t touch Laquinimodeither.

Parkinson’s – remove the Israel-pioneered brain pacemaker to stop tremors. Discontinue Levodopa, which reduces motor disturbances. Cease sessions that involve magnetic cortex stimulation.

Staff with a family history of heart disease and arteriosclerosis must not use the Israeli device for early detection of these.  Rather, wait until onset of the disease.

Epileptics – stop treatment that may have benefited from the Israeli discovery of the underlying mutant gene; also throw away the bracelet that sends out an alert when a person goes into seizure.

Staff or relatives with Age-related Macular Degeneration – remove Israeli implantsthat arrest the disease.

Liver disease – abandon Israeli-developed antibody immunotherapy treatments.

Emphysema – steer clear of the Israeli protein replacement therapy.

Myeloma – stop taking the drug Velcade, which was developed over a period of 30 years by scientists at Haifa.

Sleep apnea – no tests using the breakthrough Israeli device for diagnosis.

Dyslexics must not benefit from the Israeli Internet-based reading system.

Skin allergies must be treated with steroid creams only, as the new safer non-steroid alternative is Israeli.

Any incident of stroke or head trauma or onset of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, epilepsy, glaucoma or brain tumor must avoid using any of the Weizmann Institute’s patented methods of treatment.

Before any surgery or medical tests, check that hospital catheters have not been protected from infection using the new plastic from Israel that disables microorganisms. Avoid throat surgery as this may utilize Israeli surgical lasers.

Ensure any colonoscopy or gastro investigation does not use internal Israeli cameras such as the Pillcam.  Never undergo surgery to install an artificial heart, as the first artificial heart transplant took place in Israel.

Kidney transplant patients must wait for donors of the same blood group as only Israel’s revolutionary new methods allow donors from other blood groups.  Staff of Arab origin must not make use of the only database for matching potential Arab donors of bone-marrow – in Israel.

In the event of a spinal injury or disease, do not accept spinal implants – likely to be an Israeli product or development. Heart rhythm problems must not be solved with the Israeli-developed heart pulse generator. All heart stents are off-limits as most of these originate from Israeli medical companies.

Check all vaccines as many of these have been developed in Israel.  Ensure that all X-rays do carry a radiation risk, as the only radiation-free system is Israeli. Treatments derived from Stem Cell research must be avoided as most of theseare Israeli-developed.

If you or your family are struck with a bacterial infection, do not take alternatives to older, ineffective bacteria-resistant antibiotics, as an Israeli discovery will have been responsible for the modern, effective drugs. Check that any pain relief medication is not based on soya as an Israeli doctor discovered the beneficial effect of the soya bean.

Do not use the revolutionary new Israeli bandage that saved the life of Arizona senator Gabriella Giffords after she was shot in the head.  If you break a bone badly, reject any treatment that involves introducing collagen, as this may have been manufactured from Israeli plants.

Do not protect babies and infants from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome with the Babysense system from Israel.

Do not use Epilady (or epilator) – two Israelis invented this hair removal device.

Finally, reject all major dental treatment, as your teeth may need to be scanned with an Israeli-developed dental scanner.

The list actually goes on but we think this is enough for MP George Galloway and his cohorts to start with. Good luck and send us a post card from the middle ages to tell us how you’re doing!

It is time to take a stand – for humanity!

We are often asked “what side are you taking” and we have to explain that we take only one side- always – the side of Truth and Humanity. This is not about Hamas, it is not about Gaza or Israel or Palestine, it is not about Judaism of Islam… this is a story of terror and bullies. No matter what you think of the current round of the “Palestinian – Israeli conflict” one thing is common to both “sides” – the terror of Hamas.

You see Hamas is not a political entity. It is a terror organization, defined and acknowledged as such by the United States, the EU and other countries. It was “elected” by the Gazans but it has been ruining their lives.

Despite the barrage of rockets on Israel which is the reality for thousands of Israeli civilians (women and children) since 2005, Israel has been continuously supplying Gaza with power, water, food, medicine and other fuel. If you need a reminder, in 2005 Israel left the Gaza strip, tearing up entire settlements, uprooting thousands of families from their homes to give it “back”. Israel could have gone for the “scorched earth” strategy but it didn’t. It left behind fields, greenhouses, industry and agricultural areas – for the Gazans to take over and cultivate, for them to build a good life for themselves. Yet, Hamas forbade the Gazans to make use of what was left and tore it all up.

Hamas made sure that its subjects are kept in misery, poverty and that they have a common “enemy” to hate, or else they would not be able to rule them.

Hamas has since fired over 11k rockets (and when we say “rockets” we do not mean just mortars and shells but long range missiles too) into Israeli civilian areas. Hamas was unprovoked, yet it targets Israeli civilians. The IDF wasn’t in or near Gaza, yet Hamas targeted Israeli Civilians.

Hamas created and maintained a humanitarian crisis in Gaza so it can claim the international sympathy for the “poor” Gazans. It embezzled funds sent by the UN, the EU and the US to help relieve the humanitarian crisis to acquire ammunition and construct a vast network of underground tunnels reaching all the way into Israeli settlements well beyond the border…

All the while Gazans are starving and dying while their “leaders” drive luxury cars and live in palaces.

There really does exist a humanitarian crisis in Gaza. But Israel did not create it. Israel does not maintain it. Israel would want more than anything to end it. But it is not in Hamas’ best interest. 

If you have any common sense you will understand that we are right in our call to try Hamas leaders for war crimes, and you will sign our petition and help us spread the word.


Background – Take a Pen Global and this Petition, why do we do it?

If you need some background materials to send your friend along with the petition, this may help:

Take a Pen is not a new organization. In fact, it  played a key role in exposing the fraudulent Al-Durrah  story (the boy presumably killed by Israel who, as it turned out was killed by Palestinians and staged to make it look like Israel killed him)​. In 2009 the organization launched a petition calling to bring Hamas leaders to trial for war crimes. With primitive means of just phone calls and emails and some media coverage we raised over 80k signatures and played a role in the apology of Judge Goldstone for his committee erroneous report. The Goldstone report about the so called “Israel war crimes” was based on fraud, bias and partial and misguided data. The later apology even quoted materials that we collected and analyzed.
Now, we’re doing it again and we want to reach 1 million signatures! The situation hasn’t changed and our petition has nothing to do with taking political sides. We maintain that Hamas is a terror organization. It is not a political entity and Gaza is not a “state” (it is supposed to be part of the so called entity “Palestine” but Hamas separated even from their own brothers). The people of Gaza elected this terror group to rule them and allow it to use the, as ammunition and as human shields. Some of you may say they have no power to change their fate (e.g the 20 Palestinians who tried to demonstrate again Hamas and were brutally executed. See here: http://unitedwithisrael.org/hamas-murders-gaza-civilians-for-opposing-terror [quoting Arab sources] and here:http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/07/hamas-humanitarian-organization-shoots-20-anti-war-protesters/), others will say that they are not doing enough because had they been demonstrating by the thousands they would not be executed…
All of this doesn’t really matter…it is a well known fact that Hamas is embezzling the humanitarian aid money sent by the world and even by Israel to buy rockets and build terror tunnels rather than hospitals, schools and housing for the miserable women and children. Hamas leaders are driving luxury cars and live in palaces while their own people starve (see here from 2008: http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/gaza-s-lifelines-tunnels-to-egypt-keep-hamas-in-business-a-570463.html and here: http://www.globes.co.il/en/article-the-phenomenal-wealth-of-hamas-leaders-1000957953). It also a well known fact that Hamas uses women and children as human shields. Just 2 weeks ago, UNRWA found rockets hidden inside schools in two separate cases just 5 days apart. The rockets were kindly returned to their owners (?!?!!?) and the schools where they were hidden were in fact vacant, but they were both in between other buildings used as shelter by women and children. Hamas placed their rockets and missiles there knowing that should the IDF bomb the vacant buildings, the other surrounding building will be hit as well killing and maiming thousands of women and children…and the world shall weep… (see here with links to the UNRWA site where they report the incidents themselves: http://takeapenglobal.com/unrwa-condemns-placement-of-rockets-for-a-second-time-in-one-of-its-schools/).
there is a big difference between being a humanitarian, people loving person and being naive. The real issue is Hamas and they are terrible for everyone – their own population in Gaza and the Israeli civilians (women and children are hurt here too you know). Help us by signing the petition and sharing it with the rest of the world.


Thank you,

Take a Pen Global

Fake Pictures? Nothing new! This time it’s Haifa posing as Gaza

So, we all know that Pallywood is the world’s largest cinematic and fiction provider. They are getting better and better but it is still pretty obvious. It’s rather easy to point out the Photoshop images, the fake blood, the directed movies because the pallywood producers and their little helpers in western media do everything to make the world see and publish their creation. But it’s not always easy to catch downright stupid people who use their private social media networks to spread lies.


This guy urgently needs his eyes checked and a lesson in Geography as he posted an image of Haifa saying it is Gaza. Well Haifa still stands thank you very much for asking, and it still stands as a symbol of co-existence. So feel free to flood this guy’s twitter with lessons. A litle education never hurt anyone!



Earlier this week UNRWA issues a statement regarding a second case in which a UN school in Gaza is exploited by terrorists to hide rockets. Although the school was vacant, it was located between two other schools which currently house 3,000 Palestinians.


The UNRWA statement reads:


Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.

UNRWA strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law…”

For the complete statement click here.

The previous case in which UNRWA discovered missiles hidden in a school happened just 5 days before this one. UNRWA returned the rockets to the Hamas.

What do we learn from these cases?

1. Two cases of proof that Hamas uses civilian facilities and civilians as human shields.

2. Two cases, just 5 days apart, where a global relief organizations finds rockets in civilian buildings.

3. Said global relief organization returns the rockets to the Hamas – for what? to be launched at Israeli civilians (with UN stamp of approval!)

Putting civilians at risk, knowingly and on purpose, is a war crime. It is time to put an end to this and bring Hamas leaders to war crimes.
