UPDATE! News From the Front with Dan Gordon

Dan GordonsI’m driving to Sderot, the border town that for years has gotten the brunt of the rockets Hamas aims at Israel, and in particular at the kindergartens in Sderot. They like to shoot their rockets off exactly at the hour that parents drop their kids off at school, because that creates the most terror in Jewish parents. And that’s the point after all. It’s not military vs military. Hamas is a terrorist army. And how do you plant terror in the heart of a Jewish parent? Go after their children. And still these people stand fast and raise their kids as” normally ” as possible. So I’m driving to Sderot to look at a playground filled with gaily painted bomb shelters so the kids will think they’re playhouses. They’re supposed to have a lot shelters like that in that playground, so wherever the kids are, when the rockets start falling they’ll be safe.that‘s how we live, spitting terror in it’s eye as best we can .
> But today I’m running on fumes. Got only three hours sleep last night and right now I’m more in danger of nodding off at the wheel then getting hit by a Hamas rocket. Besides there’s supposed to be a cease fire. Israel’s already accepted it. Hamas hasn’t given their answer . Actually that’s not true. They’ve been firing rockets at us for the last two hours. Maybe that’s their answer . Any way Hamas is not my concern right now. Coffee is. I’m dying for one of those little Demi glasses of real Turkish coffee, the kind with three teaspoons of sugar and grounds turned to mud at the bottom of the glass, like my friend Itzik makes.I pull into a gas station, because you used to be able to get great Turkish coffee in any self respecting gas station . Not any more. Today it’s all espresso, cappuccino. Pishkeh! But any port in a storm, so I pull into a crowded gas station with a little coffee bar, order my double
> Pishkeh espresso and look for a place to sit down. There are a lot of army guys, reservists and regular army and truck drivers. No place to sit. There’s an old guy in his mid eighties by the looks of him sitting alone at a table.
> “any one sitting here” I ask.
> ” looks like you are “he says dryly.
> I love this kind old guy so I sit down. He looks me over, notices my grey hair and says ” They mobilized YOU?”
> ” Shows you how desperate we are” I say.
> ” Bah! how old are you? ” he asks
> ” 67″ I say
> ” tsutsik! ” it’s a great word. It means ” baby!”
> I like this guy even more. He asks where I am in the army. I tell him I’m driving to Sderot to see the playground. I might want to write about it.
> ” I know that play ground” he says. ” My grandson lives in Sderot, my great grandson plays there. I take him there . Little cutie. Nice play ground. Very sweet. You have grandchildren ?” he asks and noisily sips his coffee and that’s when I see the faded blue numbers on the inside of his forearm, and in spite of myself I get the feeling I always get in the presence of a holocaust survivor; complex feeling, pity, somehow shame, somehow pride, humility , there but for the grace of god go I . I have a friend who is Israel’s greatest writer , Amos Oz. I’m not worthy to bring him a glass of water. He said once, scratch any Israeli, I don’t care what age he is, how tough he looks, and you’ll see the numbers just under the surface of his skin. That’s the feeling.
> I tell him I have a grandson , three years old . I show him a picture on my iPhone that my son just sent” my grandson found a caterpillar ” I say as if such a thing has never happened before. The kid’s a genius!
> ” ah ” he says and smiles, but there’s not a lot of mirth in that smile” my great grandson found a caterpillar too. He plays inside it.. In that playground you’re going to”
> ” what do you mean he plays inside a caterpillar?”
> ” it’s a sewer pipe” he says, ” they painted it to look like a caterpillar. So he plays in it and if a rocket falls… So, he’s safe… In the sewer pipe.”
> And I suddenly feel sick to my stomach because I know this guy spent some time in a sewer pipe himself, hiding from other Jew haters looking to kill a Jewish child.
> There’s a lot of talk on tv about the Palestinians who have been killed in Israeli air strikes, compared with the fact that no Jews have been killed thus far.
> But that’s forgetting the three Jewish boys who were forced to kneel by Hamas terrorists and shot in the back of their heads just as neat and clean as any Nazi ever did the same when this old guy was hiding in a sewer pipe somewhere .
> My heart goes out to the Palestinian parents whose innocent children were killed despite the super human efforts of the Israeli army to prevent those deaths. As a bereaved parent I know their pain and my heart aches for them in an all too familiar pain.
> But don’t bring that bill to my people. Don’t even think about it.
> You take that bill and deliver it straight to the leaders of Hamas who started this war despite Israeli pleas that” calm will be answered with calm”
> You take that bill to the leaders of Hamas who hid behind their wives and children and built their headquarters under their hospital and turned their own women and kids into human shields, not for jihad, not to resist an occupation of Gaza that hasn’t existed for almost ten years, but to save their sorry asses and their own greed for political power, bought and paid for with the blood of both our peoples.
> And just for the record, I thank God every day of my life for the army of Israel which wants neither empire, nor Caliphate, but just to protect our people; our women and children and our elderly , some of whom wear numbers on their arms and memories too horrible to contemplate, while Hamas happily pledges to finish the work Hitler began.
> So don’t you dare present that bill to us. And with all due respect, we make no apologies for defending our nation in a war we never began, from an enemy which has so far answered our agreement for a ceasefire with dozens of rockets fired in the last two hours alone .
> I’m a movie guy. I appreciate great writing and I remember a scene in the movie Exodus, written by the great Dalton Trumbo, based on the book by Leon Uris. I don’t remember the exact dialogue but I think I’m pretty darn close.
> An American woman is trying to persuade an Israeli haganah fighter played by Paul Newman, to allow her to adopt , take to America and thereby ” save” a Jewish holocaust survivor child . Newman is giving her a hard time and she says ” how can you be so cynical ? I’m trying to save a human life.. A Jewish life! ”
> ” Don’t get hysterical ” he tells her, ” and don’t expect me to get hysterical either. You’re too late , lady! They butchered Jewish children and nobody cared! And don’t tell me about Jewish life, because nothing is cheaper in this world than Jewish life ! Not beef, not herring, not even chopped liver”
> Well, no more, Pal
> No more.
> Not as long as the IDF has anything to say about it.
> And on the day that the Palestinian people demand of their leaders that they place a higher value on THEIR lives… On that day we won’t just have a cease fire. We’ll have peace.

  1. Wow, I was surely captivated for a moment. Visualizing the older gentleman “with the faded blue numbers inside his forearm,” took my breath away for a time. His message is powerful. Especially when we are reminded of the painful history the Jewish people have faced. The children living every precious moment not knowing when Hamas will strike. Breaks my heart that the innocent children on both sides have to live like this.

  2. Here’s the hamas spin for ceasefire…

    “http://www.palpress.co.uk/arabic/?Action=Details&ID=114893” (arabic)


    Viva Palestina Malaysia shared a link.


    The Palestinian factions responded to Egypt and put 10 conditions to achieve a cease-fire in Gaza.

    A Palestinian official revealed early Wednesday, additions made by the Palestinian factions, Egypt’s intelligence as conditions for approval, “the Egyptian initiative” for a ceasefire in the Gaza Strip.

    The official, who requested anonymity for “Palestine Press News Agency,” The factions have brought the message to Egyptian intelligence are currently being researched by the Egyptian authorities for the completion of the truce in the Gaza Strip after the rejection of Hamas and Islamic Jihad for the initiative submitted by Egypt on Tuesday.

    The official pointed out that Hamas and Islamic Jihad, introduced the “10 additional conditions” to the terms set by Egypt’s most important to reach a calm period of 10 years, pointing out that Egypt and promised to look at those additions without providing clear answers about these terms or additions made by factions.

    The publication of the leader of the Popular Front Zulfikar Suergo the conditions demanded by the factions to agree to a truce, and were as follows:

    1 – stop the reciprocal of the war and the withdrawal of tanks to hideaways and restore the border areas and the yellow farm and allowing farmers to work in their lands.

    2 – the release of all Palestinian prisoners since June 23, 2014 and to improve the conditions of Palestinian prisoners, especially prisoners of Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip and a Palestinian home.

    3 – a full lifting of the blockade on Gaza and the opening of border crossings for goods and people and the introduction of each food manufacturing and plant construction enough electricity all the Gaza Strip.

    4 – The establishment of an international seaport and international airport is supervised by the UN and non-aligned countries.

    5 – Expansion of marine fishing zone to 10 km and provide fishermen fishing vessels and large cargo.

    6 – Convert Rafah international crossing to be overseen by the United Nations and Arab countries and friendly.

    7 – Signature calm for ten years and the deployment of international observers on the border.

    8 – pledge by Israel not to penetrate the atmosphere and make it easier for Palestinian worshipers in Al Aqsa.

    9 – Israel must not interfere in the affairs Palestinian government and hinder national reconciliation.

    10 – re-establishment of industrial zones and border protection and development.

    ps. Looks like overnight in Gaza that the IDF / IAF used bombs and drone missiles to destroy hamas homes/apartments and government buildings.

    Proverbs 16:7

    When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.

    Yeshua Messiah is Lord of Lords and King of Kings — and the only option for everlasting peace.

  3. Wow, Captain Gordon’s article is extremely sobering. Just minutes before I read the blog, elsewhere, i read that pop singer, Rihanna, tweeted, “Free Palestine”. It was an extremely ignorant tweet. It was reported that the tweet was deleted. She was one of several so-called stars who popularize baphomet clothing and such. Hamas or Israel? Should it be such a hard decision as to who to support? Hamas is using children as shields, and targeting Israeli children. Children are also being used as pawns on the border. So evil.

    Yesterday, a few commenters on the blog seem to have either confusion or anger with Israel. An attempt of obfuscation? Someone mentioned the process of raising many issues to create a sort of white noise and indecision. Here’s praying that they find clarity of thought, or peace of mind. Prayers to all involved.

    • I would think one would have to be educated on the subject to a certain degree before making any comments/tweets, so Rihanna’s tweet is nothing more than white noise in itself. Rihanna, is the self-proclaimed “Princess of the Illuminati, she said that, I didn’t.
      She has been a promoter of satanic and occult ideas and imagery in her music and videos since the onset of her career…Please understand, I mean no disrespect to any Rihanna fans , I’m just merely pointing out she is by no means an authority on middle east conflicts . Her tweet of “Free Palestine” shows she is woefully devoid of any ability to think critically on the subject and her tweets should be ignored….(as well as she music)

    • Appears that IDF called Gaza residents to evacuate by 8:00 am.

      Here’s a daily minute by minute report by Ynetnews…


    • Seashoremary ….. thanks for the video and info !!!

      May many muslims and ISRAELI’s and people all around the world repent and turn to YAHSHUA !!! ONLY HE CAN SAVE !!!

      May GOD be a SHIELD to each ISRAELI SOLDIER and EVERY PERSON IN ISRAEL and their eyes be LIFTED to JEHOVAH.

  4. Wow…LA……..another power post today! ……………. you are in OVERDRIVE !!!

    “And on the day that the Palestinian people demand of their leaders that they place a higher value on THEIR lives…
    …….On that day we won’t just have a cease fire. We’ll have peace.”

    That quote is so true from the blog above!

    I really enjoy hearing Captain Gordon’s insights …… I can’t imagine teaching children to play inside a “caterpillar” for a game….
    …….when it is actually going to help preserve their life. Gotta be tough on parents like he says….for both ISRAELI’s and “palestinans”.

    But like he also said, ……..
    “You take that bill and deliver it straight to the leaders of Hamas who started this war despite Israeli pleas that “calm will be answered with calm”.


    “So don’t you dare present that bill to us. And with all due respect, we make no apologies for defending our nation in a war we never began,
    from an enemy which has so far answered our agreement for a ceasefire with dozens of rockets fired in the last two hours alone.”

    I like Captain Gordon’s mindset……….FIRM and UNWAVERING.



  5. Going to War

    Deuteronomy 20: 1-4

    “When you go to war against your enemies and see horses and chariots and an army greater than yours, do not be afraid of them, because the Lord your God, who brought you up out of Egypt, will be with you. When you are about to go into battle, the priest shall come forward and address the army. He shall say: “Hear, Israel: Today you are going into battle against your enemies. Do not be fainthearted or afraid; do not panic or be terrified by them. For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

  6. Great write up from Dan once again.
    When someone wants to fight and you don’t eventually you have no option but to hit back. God created us to want to live!
    Cause trouble then whine about it………Seems like a familiar story from childhood.
    We used to say ” don’t dish it out if you can’t take it”:)

  7. People who study the OT don’t realize those guys (King David, the prophets, Saul) were warriors. When they came to the temple to worship the Lord, the sword strapped to their side was still dripping with blood and specks of the enemy’s gray matter.
    We’ve so sanitized Christianity over the centuries. We’ve forgotten that God calls us to war. Against satan always, who has his “tribes” around the earth with their hatred pointed at all of us.

  8. This one is a must see. What could be causing these inner earth changes? … which in turn are causing these strange sounds that people are hearing?

    Perhaps… …………


    Much to digest here.

    • Corey….thanks for the video above….looks like a real good one! I will check it out later tonight.

      Did you hear that Yellow Stone is experiencing more heat from the ground….so much so…that the roads are turning to MUSH !!!
      I don’t think it is like that everywhere in the park, but some places have been closed supposedly. But that is HOT stuff to do that.
      Even Old Faithful has been increasing in activity and larger plumes and many more places in the park are active!

      Also, same day I found that out, AUSTRALIA had its’ LOWEST temps in like a hundred years or so !!! HEAT ………. COLD. Hmmmm?

      Seems like those tidbits confirm what I think I will see in that video you provided.

      And …. If our MAGNETOSPHERE is weakening as many say it is…..then that allows the suns harmful rays to penetrate the earth core.

      This would certainly cause the increase of volcanic activity, methane bursts, sink holes because the earth would expand from greater
      heat in the earth’s core, and more earthquake activity and intensity because the huge plates would “float” more on top of the magma
      that is more fluid…..again….this explains Yellow Stone and others like it and under the sea….which is why the sea temps in some parts
      of the oceans are warmer.

      ohhh i just noticed the Steve Quayle link about Planet X…..i will check that out too!

      Woo-Hoo !!!!

    – the emergence of “the image of the beast” tech
    – microsoft “project adam” vs. google “intelligent search”


  10. Senate panel doubles money for Israel’s Iron Dome

    AP: Congress is showing tangible support for longtime ally Israel as Gaza militants fire rockets, backing a measure that would double the amount of money for Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system.

    The Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee approved a defense spending bill on Tuesday that would provide $621.6 million for Israeli missile defense, including $351 million for the Iron Dome system that intercepts short-range rockets and mortars. In the latest hostilities between Israel and Hamas, Iron Dome has been successful in shooting down rockets and preventing Israeli deaths.

    I do like this Iron Dome which has been proven to work. Come to think of it too bad America’s own 6th Fleet didn’t have an “Iron Dome” for its fleet vessel USS Liberty, the US Intelligence Navy ship, when Israel launched missles and miscellaneous armor peircing shells from its Air Force Strafings surprise attacking Liberty deliberately leaving 34 courageous brave Americans dead and 174 more seriously wounded….it would have come in handy in that situation.

    • Hey Matt,

      regarding that video/post you did put up with Hitler ….Do you recall the Caliph’s name that met with Hitler back then ???

      I wasn’t sure if it was Muhammad,…..Abdul,…….Allah, ……Hussein, ……Insane, ……or HubbaDubbaBubba – Do ???

      If you recall it, let me know. i remember watching a video some time back about it, but can’t remember name of video.

  11. I read this and my heart hurts, I am humbled deeply. I continue to pray for Israel, for your people, for your leadership, for your safety, for your peace. With great love, from Texas

    • I was going to post this video a few days ago but lost the feed. I’ve got it back:

      Hamas Spokesperson “We Are Leading Our People to Death”

      Joshua 24:15

      “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods you fathers served that were on the other side of the river, or the gods that the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”


    • SeashoreMary…..

      Ain’t it kinda “odd” that the leaders of Muslim groups…….are never heard of BLOWING THEMSELVES UP….but always let their “pawns”.

      Most leaders are usually taken out by someone else! …………like when we drop a bomb on their head.

  12. Hello.

    Sorry to change subject. Report from last Sunday of death of a man at Burning Man festival, otherwise called art project (in report), Utah.
