The car of Rav Raziel Shevach HY”D. Jan. 9, 2018
Rabbi Raziel Shevach, z’l, 35, was murdered Tuesday night by Palestinian Authority Arab terrorists in a drive-by shooting at the entrance to Gilad Farms on Highway 60, in Samaria, Israel.
The attackers opened fire at nearly point-blank range while passing the rabbi’s car as they drove towards him at approximately 8:05 pm.
22 bullets were fired at his car.
Rabbi Raziel, himself a Magen David Adom (MDA) first responder, and his wife are parents to six children at their home in Havat Gilad. He taught and studied at Roeh Yisraelyeshiva in Yitzhar.
He was evacuated in critical condition to Meir Hospital in Kfar Saba, a suburb of Tel Aviv. His wife told Ynet that her husband “called me and said, “I’ve been shot, call an ambulance.” She said that she is “still shocked and horrified at how easily they gun us down.” She asked the public to pray for her husband.
By the time Magen David Adom (MDA) spokesperson Zaki Heller arrived from Kedumim along with an IDF medical force, the man’s condition was already grave. “We gave him life-saving medical treatment and he was evacuated to the hospital,” Heller said. “His condition was critical.”
The hospital released a statement saying that the rabbi arrived with no heartbeat, and no longer breathing.
A search has been launched for the vehicle and the terrorists, who managed to escape. IDF troops shut down Highway 60 in both directions — the main artery that runs past the community — and other small roads in the area, located south of Shechem (Nablus) as they hunted for the shooters

On Thursday, the first four female tank commanders complete the Armored Corps’s tank commanders course. The four armored combat soldiers underwent 16 weeks of training at the 460 Brigade and successfully completed the course.
Armored Corps Chief Brigadier General Guy Hasson stated: “After a year and four months of experience, we can say with certainty that an armored combat team under the command of a female tank commander is capable of carrying out operational activity as part of the border defense system.”

Israel was ranked the eighth most powerful country in the world, according to US News & World Report magazine’s 2018 best country rankings. With few natural resources and surrounded by sworn enemies, one entrepreneur is convinced that it is Israel’s destined role as a Light Unto the Nations that has fueled this rise to the top.
The ranking, measuring a country’s diplomatic, economic and military might, placed the tiny Jewish State ahead of most European countries, Australia, Canada, and all of the Arab countries. One of the major factors for placing Israel so high on the list was its role as a leader in global technology.
New reports reveal the connections between BDS and Islamic terrorists.
Those were the words of Ismail Haniyeh, a former Hamas prime minister and the head of its Politburo. And they revealed that Hamas considers BDS to be a component of its strategy for destroying Israel.
Even as Hamas continues the violence against Israel, it has gone on cheering BDS.
Hamas leader Yahya Sinwar puts the release of Palestinian prisoners in Israel ahead of any proposals to ease the decadelong siege on the Gaza Strip.

When the Oslo deal that would create two Islamic terror states inside Israel came up for a vote in the Knesset, the legislator whose vote helped it pass is the same man now accused of spying for Iran.
The strange story of Gonen Segev, doctor, Minister of Energy, drug smuggler, Nigerian exile and now accused Iranian spy, is also that of the dirty politics behind the peace process. It wasn’t idealism that made the deal with the PLO. It was dirty backroom deals with dangerously unprincipled politicians.
For years, Israel’s Right has asserted that the Supreme Court tilts sharply Left, treating Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria in an unfair and even unjust manner. Time and again, politicians and pundits have argued that behind their pronouncements of principle, the justices were in fact often motivated by political agendas.
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Although nuclear strategy must, by definition, be shaped without historical precedent, it should contain certain ancient core concepts. The strategic postulates first laid down by Sun Tzu could be referenced usefully by the current architects of US nuclear strategy, especially with reference to an already nuclear North Korea, and to a plausibly future nuclear adversary in Iran.
Last week, in Kibbutz Beit HaEmek in northern Israel, a vote was held in order to decide whether three single parent asylum seekers and their children should be allowed to stay there.
With a majority of 92 against 87, the decision was made against their absorption. It’s not just any Kibbutz but one with an especially high percentage of Meretz voters.
TEL AVIV – What do Israelis think of the idea of Israel winning and the Palestinians losing?
It’s a radical idea, very different from the 50-year-and-counting win-win assumption of “land for peace” that has transfixed governments and monopolized their attention. That old idea holds that putting Palestinians and Israelis in a room together will prompt them to settle their differences. On the cusp of the Oslo Accords’
