She found herself face to face with a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist from Gaza. And so began a fight to the death between an unarmed 39 year- old mother of four and an armed terrorist in Sde Avraham, a neighborhood in southern Israel's Eshkol region near Gaza. Only Maariv (newspaper) put Yael and her heroic battle on its front page. Yediot Aharonot put it on page 25. As for the foreign press, I didn't read a single word about Marauding, barbaric terrorist murderers who seek out babies in their beds
Marauding, barbaric terrorist murderers who seek out babies in their beds
When Yael Ram-Matzpon * heard the door open at 3:30 a.m., she thought it was her husband returning from his job in the IDF. But when the door flung open and the light flicked on, she found herself face to face with a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist from Gaza. Lying next to her in bed was her four and half year- old daughter and two year- old son. In a room close by, her eight and nine year old daughters lay sleeping.
"'What do you want, I asked him. Money, food?' I got up. He told me to get down on the floor. I knew I wasn't doing that."
And so began a fight to the death between an unarmed 39 year- old mother of four and an armed terrorist in Sde Avraham, a neighborhood in southern Israel's Eshkol region near Gaza; a mother who knew that only she stood between him and the slaughter of her innocent children. "He pushed me down and started to slash me," she told Israel's evening news. "And I thought: 'Now I'm going to feel what it's like to be slashed, just like you see on television.'" As she speaks, we notice the long scar on her cheekbone, the tear in her skin under her eye and on her chin, evidence of the deadly weapon which sought to take away her life and the lives of her children.
Yael, an Olympic-level horse trainer in dressage, who learned kravmagah during her army service, didn't panic. Instead, she threw everything she had at him, punching him in the face and eyes and nose, scratching and jabbing him --not as if, but because --her life, and the lives of her children depended on it. He began to throw things at her, a mirror, a scale, but missed. She took the moment to lead her small children to safety, sending her daughter to her sisters, and putting her little boy into the bomb shelter and locking the door. She picked up a large heavy metal bell, used to start horse competitions, and used it to pummel him out of the room and into the adjoining shower. She then locked and barricaded the door, flying to the kitchen to call her husband and a neighbor who was a sharpshooter.
Probably realizing he had stumbled on a tigress he couldn't overcome, the terrorist jumped out of the window and ran. He was soon spotted and shot by the IDF, which although it responded with lightning speed, had allowed the terrorist to infiltrate in the first place. Ynet has revealed that a section of the security fence guarding neighborhoods close to Gaza was left open and unmanned, allowing the terrorist free access. New 'agreements' with Gaza now allow Palestinians to work the fields right up to the security fence. Such is the decision of our politicians.
If not for the courage, strength, and level-headedness of this Israeli woman, the photos of Jewish children butchered in their beds would be splashed across the Israeli papers instead of the photos of campaigning politicians. Only Maariv put Yael and her heroic battle on its front page. Yediot Aharonot put it on page 25. As for the foreign press, I didn't read a single word about how an unarmed mother fought off a knife-weilding terrorist to save herself and her children. And what could be more newsworthy than that? Except, of course, if your paper doesn't really rejoice in such a victory and would rather print the blood. I have two words for them, and they aren't happy birthday.
God bless Yael Ram-Matzpon and all our Israeli women, mothers and soldiers, who are sometimes forced to be both at the same time in order to protect themselves and their children with bare hands, from marauding, barbaric terrorist murderers who seek out babies in their beds. This time, though, the murderer got more than he bargained for.

These days, final preparations are being made for the fourth Sovereignty Conference, which will be held on Sunday, the 16th of Tevet, February 12th, in conjunction with the periodical Basheva (and will be broadcast live on Arutz 7). In this conference as well, in which ministers, members of Knesset and public figures will take part, the various ideas of how to promote sovereignty will be presented. However, in contrast to previous conferences, in this conference, Matar and Katsover intend to outline a plan that will offer a first response to the challenges of sovereignty.
Palestinian leaders preach nonstop hatred of Jews and continually incite murderous violence against them. Palestinian schools teach children of every age that suicide martyrdom must be their highest goal. These attitudes are deeply ingrained in their culture, and getting their own state won’t change them. In fact, any Palestinian state would almost certainly be taken over by Hamas, whose charter explicitly calls for the death of all Jews everywhere.
The government of Israel has evacuated Amona – Does the Left or the world like us any better? Do they respect us more? Isn’t it better to apply the law in Judea and Samaria, to absorb exactly the same condemnations that we get in any case, but to do it to rescue the Land of Israel and Amona as part of it?

Everyone is so concerned to be politically correct and so worried about being perceived racist, that they fail to see that in fact the true racists with the truly incorrect political agenda are the ones pointing the finger and doing the name calling. (In psychology it would be called reaction formation; the suppression of one impulse by the promotion of a counter impulse.)
Having met up with my pen friend we went ‘somewhere’ and there was this big open paved garden type area and there were platforms going nowhere which you ascended by climbing stairs. Through the middle of the paved courtyard-garden ran a little pond. I was fully aware of its existence but so focused was I on taking a good photo that I was walking while looking through the viewfinder of the camera. I fell straight into the pond.

BenDedek originally created the site to publicize his research results into the Chronology of Ancient Israel. Those results were published under the title: 'The King's Calendar: The Secret of Qumran.' Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Definition: King's Calendar Chronological Research
The Premise: Between the 5th and 3rd centuries BCE (but continuing down to at least 104 BCE), Sectarian redactors transcribed the legitimate 'solar year' chronological records of Israel and Judah, into an artificial form, with listed years as each comprised of 12 months of 4 weeks of 7 days, or 336 days per year, thus creating a 13th artificial year where 12 solar years existed.
When the Synchronous Chronological Data provided in the Books of Kings and Chronicles for the Divided Kingdom Period are measured in years of 336 days, the synchronisms actually align. [Refer to Appendix 5. to see how it synchronises the Divided Kingdom Period]
