New Hamas Tactics
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday May 24 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad are hard at work preparing for their next attack and next war with Israel.

They are using three tactics to achieve their goals.

Tactic # 1 - digging new tunnels

Tactic # 2 - developing better drones

Tactic # 3 - expanding naval capacities

The newly dug tunnels that have been recently uncovered by the IDF reach the Israeli border, but don't cross it. In times of war, Hamas hopes to emerge out of the tunnels on the Gazan side, close to the partition fence, and then break through it.

IDF sources say that Hamas has added 1,000 rockets to its existing arsenal, since the end of Operation Guardian of the Walls last year. The big difference is that now Hamas is focusing on the quality, not quantity, of their drones and missiles. This new arsenal is more accurate and more sophisticated than their previously used weapons.

Hamas also has well trained drone teams that have not been targeted by Israel.

They are also smuggling equipment through the Gaza-Egypt border by disguising their cargo to look like civilian shipments. They are utilizing the shipments to manufacture larger and stronger engines for boats already used by Hamas naval commando units and to assemble explosive boats.

Hamas is becoming more adept at warfare.

Jew Hatred in Hollywood
By Micah Halpern

Monday May 23 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:


They call themselves GDL, the Goyim Defense League. Their aim is to draw attention to their hatred of Jews.

Over the weekend 3 members of the GDL pulled their truck into the Beverly Hilton and shouted ugly anti-Jewish expressions at hotel guests. Their truck was covered in anti-Jewish slogans and they shouted “The Nazis are coming!”. 2 members of the group were dressed as Nazis, the third wore a hat with fake sidelocks.

They were trying to intimidate hotel guests. The police were called/

Their website, Goyimtv’s, describes their vision this way: “All members of the community and wider society should be treated as equals with the same rights, regardless of their race, age, sex, religion, political beliefs, or any other immutable attribute or self assigned designation UNLESS YOU’RE A JEW or THE SHABBOS EQUIVALENT.”

The group’s major philosophy is called replacement theory. They believe that Jews will replace whites in the United States. It is one of their group mantras.

They believe that a cabal of political elites – often Jews – are trying to destroy white culture or race through mass migration of non-white peoples. That belief is often part of a narrative about “white genocide,” and is manifested in the slogan, “You will not replace us,” or “Jews will not replace us.”

This group is very small, but the Jew-hating sentiment is catching on and others are starting to repeat this hateful rhetoric.

Israel Parade in NYC
By Micah Halpern

Sunday May 22 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Today New York City’s 5th Avenue was transformed into a celebration of love for Israel.

The 57th annual Salute to Israel Parade had 10’s of thousands of spectators as 10’s of thousands of marchers from schools, synagogues, youth groups, Jewish organizations, police, fire, ambulance heroes – all told over 40thousand, proudly strode down the avenue accompanied by marching bands and clowns on stilts – and of course, politicians.

After a three year hiatus, necessitated by Covid, the theme that was chosen for this year’s parade was, in English, Together Again. In Hebrew it was Kolannu b”Yachad, we are together.

The joy and love for Israel was palpable. An unabashed and proud lover pf Israel, I was in the reviewing stands and cheered as the marchers went by. I spoke to many JBS viewers who told me both how excited they were to attend the parade and how essential a part of their lives JBS is.

An electric celebration of 74 years of Israeli statehood and independence, marchers made their way from 57th Street all the way to 74th Street. How appropriate – the 57th Salute to Israel Parade began on 57th Street and ended on 74th Street – Israel’s 74th anniversary celebration.

When the parade first originated nearly 6 decades ago, marchers marched along Manhattan’s Riverside Drive.

Yesterday’s parade was all about Jewish pride.

Fake Attack on Tel Aviv
By Micah Halpern

Saturday May 21 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Israel is in the midst of the month long set of drills called Chariots of Fire. The country is preparing for any and all attacks they might have to, one day, face. This is the largest, most comprehensive drill in Israeli history.

A recent Chariots of Fire drill was an enactment of an attack on Tel Aviv. During the drill it was as if missiles, shot by Hezbollah, hit the center of downtown Tel Aviv and destroyed a building. Israel actually destroyed a real building in order to truly train the participants.

A senior officer, who could not be named, who is a high ranking member of the Home Front Command explained that:

"The goal was to practice complex scenarios which could occur in the future."

"In the next military conflict, we could experience more frequent and intense rocket fire, especially from Hezbollah, and the potential of more racially motivated riots across the entire country, after the May riots last year."

The IDF trained in 42 cities and towns, they trained in industrial areas across the country activating sirens in as many as 61 communities, as part of the drill.

All to be prepared for the inevitable.

One of their biggest fears for Israeli forces is that roads will be blocked by rioters and that will prevent rescue equipment from getting to sites and it will block medical teams form evacuating the wounded.

As part of the drill the IDF was trained on how to remove rioters and free up roads. The IDF will also use a completely different internet and communication system, so that it will be 100% reliable, during any crisis that might arise.

Lag B'Omer 2022
By Micah Halpern

Friday May 20 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Yesterday was Lag B’Omer.

The Jewish calendar counts a 50 full days, 7 full weeks, from Passover until Shavuot. It is called “counting the Omer”.

Lag B’Omer is the 33rd day of the Omer, in other words, it comes 33 days after the first day of Passover.

One year ago, in Israel, 45 people - men and children, were trampled to death on Lag B’Omer. It happened at Meron, where 100’s of thousands of people gather each year to pay tribute to Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai.

The 45 deaths were the results of overcrowding and poor planning. All of the dead were trampled to death.

This year, in response to last year’s tragedy, a plan and restrictions were put in place. Only those with tickets were permitted entry. They were asked to remain no more than four hours. The number of people at the gravesite of Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai was limited.

But the crowds did not follow the rules. And the grave site became overcrowded with 400 people where only 170 can safely fit.

And as the crowds got larger and reached the maximum - the Police stopped busses as they were getting off the highway causing traffic jams. Some people became unruly. They pulled down fences and cameras. It was getting out of hand.

The police ended the celebrations a few hours early. They managed to maintain control despite some difficult moments.

5 Sand Cats Born in Israel
By Micah Halpern

Thursday May 19 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:

Sand Cats, also known as Sand Dune Cats, are an endangered species.

The Ramat Gan Safari had two Sand Cats - one male and the other a female. One feline came from France and the other from Sweden. The two-year old female just delivered 5 kittens.

According to the Safari staff, at first, the Europeans did not seem to get along. But as time went by they got closer, grew fond of each other and eventually mated.

All five of the newborn Sand Cats in the litter have survived. Often, only two kittens survive - so this is an exception. The mother is very protective of her newborns and barely lets the father come close.

There are less than 10,000 of these endangered cats in the wild and only 178 in zoos across the world. At one time there were Sand Cats in Israel, but with time they came extinct in the region. Now several zoos, like the Ramat Gan Safari, are taking part in efforts to boost the species' reproduction rate and to bring more Sand Cats to the world.

The Israeli-born kittens will eventually be transferred to zoos in Europe where they will, hopefully, continue to help the species' population increase.

Huge Loss for Hezbollah
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday May 18 , 2022
I've Been Thinking:


There were elections in Lebanon - and Hezbollah turned out to be the big loser.

Final results are in, and Hezbollah has lost significant power.

Hezbollah won 31 seats in this election. In the last election they had only 29 seats. So how did they lose?

Here’s how:

Hezbollah’s partners from the past parliament lost significant seats in this election. Because of that Hezbollah, despite a gain of two seats, they lost power.

In bigger terms, this means that Hezbollah has lost control of the Lebanese parliament. It’s actually good news for everyone except Hezbollah.

I have been predicting this outcome for the past few months.

And that’s because, in Lebanon, for the past several months, we have witnessed numerous signs and signals that average citizens of Lebanon are expressing anger at Hezbollah. There were repeated claims that Hezbollah was putting the rest of Lebanon at serious risk. And they were shouting that Hezbollah’s priorities and Iran’s priorities are not Lebanon’s priorities.

They were publicly saying that Hezbollah keeps poking Israel and that when Israel strikes back, they hit at all Lebanese – not only Hezbollah.

And through their votes, they made their point. And they made their point loud and clear.
