J’lem yeshiva terror attack videos posted to you tube

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 27, 2008

The government recently posted three videos showing images from the terror attack at Jerusalem’s Mercaz Harav Yeshiva earlier this month in which eight students were killed.

The three videos were posted under the titles “Stop the Terror, Stop the Bloodshed,” “Act NOW: Stop The Bloodshed – Stop the Terror,” and “Emergency call, March 7, Jerusalem.”

While the person named as poster, AtiyaRachel, was not identified as having any connection to the government, TheMarker has learned that the Prime Minister’s Office was actually behind the uploads to the popular video site.

This is the first time that a government body has used the site in response to a terror attack.

The first film features graphic and bloody footage shot inside the yeshiva in the wake of the attack, as English subtitles document an emergency call made by a yeshiva student during the attack.

The one-minute video attracted over 5,300 viewings and 88 responses as of Wednesday night. You can view the footage below. Please note that this footage contains images of a graphic nature.

And the terrorist was quickly dispatched by an armed student who was down the street from the attack. Imagine how differently things might have been had someone in the yeshiva had been armed.

Yesterday, during the Hendersonville debate, a question was raised about allowing the carrying of weapons on government property and on schools.
I believe all the candidates answered that students should not be allowed to carry. (I will post a video of that question and the responses here when I process it).
**update** 11.26 am The Times-News has video of the question and the responses.

(Their audio level sucks, I’ll still post my video later).

**update** 7.07 pm Here’s my version of the above video.

The only candidate who gave something close to the correct answer was Fred Smith. He is still wrong about not allowing people to carry concealed in public schools. There is not one policy that can be written that will prevent anyone from entering a school, and blowing away children, unarmed teachers and school employees. Not one. Only physical acts, such as Metal Detectors will screen out most of the firearms. Not all.

My belief is that if eligible students, faculty members, or passers through, are not allowed to carry…then who ever is responsible for the law that prevent it should be held criminally liable, financially liable, and blood liable.

This is one law I do not feel compelled to obey. One day, there will come a situation where a person, or (if we are lucky) people will be present who have disregarded such laws and regulations and they will save lives of the people around them and put down a mad dog masquerading as a human being. I dare any D.A. to attempt a prosecution of the life-saver. God help any D.A. if that person were me. I’d take the case to jury trial and set a precedent.

When it comes to the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, I am a purist. A law-abiding citizen is guaranteed the ability to carry weapons unregulated by the federal, state or local government.

**update** 11.18 am Great Minds think alike. Well, mostly. Ogre has some comments about the recent Virginia Tech Massacre Lawsuit that is proceeding through the legal system.

McCrory Wins Hendersonville GOP Straw Poll

Posted by Thunder Pig on March 27, 2008


(Flat Rock) Charlotte Mayor Pat McCory scored big in the Hendersonville Tribune / West Wins straw poll at Wednesday’s gubernatorial debate at Blue Ridge Community College. The poll measured those in attendance on their feelings before and after the debate. Roughly half of the crowd of about 250 participated. The results were:

Before the Debate
Fred Smith 47 votes – 50%
Bob Orr 23 votes – 25%
Pat McCrory 12 votes – 13%
Bill Graham 11 votes – 12%
Elbie Powers No votes – 0%

After the Debate
Pat McCrory 54 votes 44%
Fred Smith 41 votes 33%
Bob Orr 18 votes 14%
Bill Graham 11 votes 9%
Elbie Powers No votes 0%

Some were undecided before the debate.
Some voted one way before the debate and another way after the debate.

West Wins Financial Director, Clifton Philbeck, said that Smith did
very well before the debate because, “He’s been out here a lot. People
know him. They are familiar with him.” He also said, “For some
people this is the first time they’ve heard (McCory) speak and he
connected well with them.”
The straw poll was conducted by West Wins Political Action and
Education Committee for the Hendersonville Tribune. West Wins is a Republican organization dedicated to bringing attention to the needs of Western North Carolina.
West Wins Executive Director Larry Ford noted,”These are very
interesting results. We really didn’t expect to see minds changed like they evidently were. The turnout, at 8:00 AM indicates that Western North Carolina is looking for somebody to represent us.”
In addition to heading West Wins, Ford is also Vice Chairman of the
Henderson County GOP and Vice President of the Henderson County Republican
Men’s Club, the two sponsoring organizations. The debate held at
Blue Ridge Community College, was sponsored by the Henderson County Republican Men’s Club and the Henderson County Republican Party. There was no attempt to determine if everyone was likely to vote in the Republican primary.
