Soldier injured in Gaza riot is volunteer from Los Angeles

The IDF soldier who was injured by one of the explosive devices thrown by Gaza terrorists Sunday night is a 20-year old volunteer from Los Angeles. He is being treated for injuries to lung and windpipe caused by flying shrapnel, after being flown to Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon by helicopter. His name was not released. The IDF reported that dozens of Palestinian rioters attacked Israeli soldiers patrolling the northern Gaza border with homemade explosive devices and burning tires. Israeli tanks retaliated with artillery fire on Hamas positions.

    “Israeli tanks retaliated with artillery fire on Hamas positions.” Which tanks fire artillery? The latest Israeli invention?
    Modern self-propelled artillery vehicles may superficially resemble tanks, but until now, according to this report, they were generally lightly armored, too lightly to survive in direct-fire combat. However, they protect their crews against shrapnel and small arms and are therefore usually included as armored fighting vehicles.

    This ridiculous ‘Lone Kahanist Soldier from LA’ shtik has just about run it’s course

    Tales from a Birthright Hilltop Youth reject – Magazine – Jerusalem Post

    May 2, 2013 – According to Birthright, anyone is eligible for the free trip to Israel if they are Jewish (if not religious, then not practicing any other religion), are between the ages of 18 and 26, have not lived in Israel since the age of 12, and have never traveled to Israel on an organized trip (with some exceptions).

    It’s the ‘Israeli ISIS’ equivalent of a Baghdad Prison Gulag complete with indoctrination lectures from Petraeus and Boot.

    These ‘Lone Kahanist-Takfiri Birthright programs’ are the gateway indoctrination gulags for the ranks of the Boot/Petraeus ‘Kahanist Wahabi NATO’ for impressionable wannabe Hilltop Youth

      It’s a open question if the youth was recruited directly from the Birthright tour, if he just ‘walked off’ his tour in order to ‘meet some Palestinians’ himself, or if Birthright was inclusively just letting him sow a few wild oats with a new ‘Gaza Experience Option’. These guys had best find another Gap Year option, even if they get an extended free trip

    Why respond on hamas positions? Empty and waste of time. Respond directly with fire on the rioters who are terrorists attempting to murder!

      Fly drones over the rioters and spray bacon grease on ’em.
