Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

Egypt asked the Hamas government to return some 1,400 cars that were hijacked from Egypt and brought to Gaza. There are still more Israeli cars in the Strip.

Media made some fuss over the change in Polish law under which Jewish property confiscated during the Holocaust would now be returned only through court proceedings, rather than via the simple administrative procedure which was in place before. Certainly, that introduces some hurdles for potential heirs, but they are not insurmountable.

Poland greatly profited from the Holocaust by confiscating the real estate property of its two-million-plus Jews, many of whom were affluent. And yet, Poland is perhaps the only ex-communist country that actively works to return that property to the heirs of its rightful owners.

The blast in New DelhiTwo recent attacks against Israeli embassy targets were beautiful in their simplicity. In New Delhi, a magnetic bomb was attached to the car of the wife of an official. In Tbilisi, a staffer found a bomb underneath his car.

The story is not without its oddities. Two Israeli doctors were readily available in New Delhi to take charge of the slightly wounded woman. In Tbilisi, the staffer discovered the bomb because it scratched the surface of the road while the car was in motionóbut oddly enough, the bomb did not fall off.

The symbolism of the attacks is unmistakable. First, they mirror Israeli assassinations of Iranian scientistsóbut with an important difference: the media version of events notwithstanding, the scientists were really shot. So it is strange that the Iranians follow the wrong scenario. Second, the attacks were perpetrated against targets deliberately chosen for their relative unimportance. That was to demonstrate that Israel has a huge, soft underbelly that she cannot protect. There is no way for us to guard all Georgian staffers or officials’ wives.

So the Iranians showed us that retaliation is really very simple.
