Considering the current rise in anti-Semitism, I am stunned that Andrew Bolt is still allowed to broadcast. But what an amazing piece of truth this video is. Pity it isn't required learning for all the local bigots who swallow wholesale the lies of the PA et al, but cant find out the truth for themselves

This needs to go viral.

I can only agree with every word Andrew Bolt utters. Thank you for sharing Cathy, peace, Love and Light.

Hamas wants the Jews dead. G d and Israel won't allow that to ever happen. NEVER AGAIN!

thank God the Israelis have the guts to face up to these BARBARIANS

Thank you...the truth must be told

Many thanks and prayers to the Prime Minister and all of Israel for courageously facing terror and taking action against it. Thanks, too for those in the media who are spreading the truth. Terrorism is already a global task which few nations are willing to undertake. Let us follow Israel's lead. No one wants to fight, no one wants to die, no one wants to suffer, but all of this has escalated swiftly throughout the world due to unrestricted terrorists groups and the lack of responsibility of nations and governments who are afraid to confront this global cancer. We in America stand by Israel. We support you with prayer in a special way. Please pray that the rest of the world can be as brave and adamant as Israel and come together with united effort and determination to destroy this evil, before it destroys more villages, nations, families and individuals. This form of terrorism cannot be negotiated with or tolerated. It must be eliminated altogether. Ignorance,fear and inaction are our greatest weaknesses. "Lord, let Your mercy be upon us, as we place our trust in You."

I hope that Europe and America on time realize the difference between good and evil and act so they can save their own people. Wake up world and arise against Islam together with us Israel!

the true picture

but as we say in psalms 'eyes they have but they see not,ears they have but they hear not' Mr. Bolt is one of those rare individuals who sees the truth and is not brainwashed by the mass media, thankyou Mr.Bolt for sticking up for us.

Well said! Now what do we as people do to stop this flagrant display of antisemitism?

Excellent commentary

(30) Yehudith Shraga, August 13, 2014 8:21 PM

A Person who thinks

Thank you very much, Andrew Bolt, for making such a clear report on the situation and showing a profound comprehension of the "problem".

(29) Andre TakeAPen, August 13, 2014 6:52 PM

How can we turn now our conviction into action?

If this extraordinary video convinced us what Hamas is, how can we turn now our conviction into action? One way is to read "Hamas leaders must be tried for war crimes" at and if you agree, sign it and share

(28) Neria, August 13, 2014 5:44 PM

Massive thanks

Dear Mr. Bolt, Thank you so much for presenting the plain facts of gazan attacks on Israel in a logical, articulate way. G-d bless you for your courage.

(27) Sarah McCrum, August 13, 2014 3:18 PM


An answer to prayer! Has it been sent to the national media?

(26) Barbara Dagen, August 13, 2014 1:10 PM

Mr.Bolt you are wonderful!

Mr. Bolt-you are wonderful! We need more people like you.

(25) Jan Gorbacz, August 13, 2014 4:47 AM

Well said, Andrew Bolt. We need many more like you who have been blessed with eloquence to speak out with truth and justice. May God richly bless you in all that you do.

(24) Cindy, August 13, 2014 3:48 AM


Oh goodness, you got to love Andrew Bolt! I am so happy at least one reporter dared to say the words that others have been afraid to say.

G-d Bless!

SO true!

How rare to hear someone speak the truth in such a clear and honest way. Finally someone in the media portraying FACTS and not FICTION. Andrew Bolt is well informed and articulate and has all the facts to back up his opinion on the war in Gaza and the unbalanced portrayal in the media worldwide. He is so correct, the democratic "Western Civilization" should be relieved that Israel is fighting at the front lines for freedom and an end to terror, instead they are criticizing Israel.

john, August 13, 2014 8:37 AM

Mr. Bolt is like a bolt from the blue to shock all the phonies and lackeys of the radical Muslim world in the media to wake up and be manly enough so the truth is shown against the avalanche of hideous propaganda they spew. Mr Bolt is also a real Man for standing straight against the crookedness of tendentious reporting and strong enough for standing against it.

(22) lee weinblatt, August 13, 2014 1:58 AM

If only this could be shown worldwide

Thank you for sharing this video

Islam seems to be on the rise all over the World and only our G-d can stop them.

(20) Karen, August 12, 2014 10:27 PM

Good on ya Mate

Congratulations Andrew for telling the truth.

(19) Anonymous, August 12, 2014 9:16 PM

Why isn't the media in other countries giving this information out? After the Jews, it will be Christians, and on and on. Muslim extremists want everyone Muslim. Other countries need to know this.

(18) Anonymous, August 12, 2014 9:04 PM

wow! really powerfull

(17) Anonymous, August 12, 2014 9:02 PM

Well done..ab imo pectore

To Mr Bolt, I wish there were more reporters like yourself. I am tired of one sided presentations that deliberately aggravate an unfair situation. I am a supporter of Israel, and your report gives me hope that truth will prevail. Your last comment is sadly true..Islam will turn on the rest of us if they are not stopped. Where are the good Muslims to say to their brothers and sisters to stop this madness? Why can no one make them understand...* There is space for All, but no space for One*

Thank you Andrew ! May the God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob protect you ,people like you,all Jews/ Israel always, from these repulsive miscreants of recidivism.
Thanks for telling the world of the atrocities taking place out there.

Andrew Bolt tells the truth about Gaza

Thank you Andrew Bolt for telling it like it really is. How refreshing to see and hear a journalist with the "chutzpa" to really expose the truth about Gaza and the anti-semitism growing and festering around the world.

(14) basha, August 12, 2014 7:37 PM

Jews have an inbuilt antidote toward the venom spewed from every direction and we have developed and sharpend our senses to permanent danger through persecution but when someone comes along and underlines our plight, it seems that fresh air smells funny!

(13) Heidi, August 12, 2014 7:34 PM

Nice One, Mate

As an ashamed Kiwi, I salute you, Andrew. More needs to be made of the fact that ISIS and Hamas are EXACTLY the same, except one is achieving its inhumane goals and the other is sacrificing its people to achieve its ends. Why are the other Arabs nations so quiet on both dramas, and why is it always the West who is rushing to save people who will ultimately turn on them?
The only answer I can come up with re this global anti-Semitism is that every nation that harboured a peaceful Jewish population and used them for their intelligence, intellect and work ethics - and then ultimately turned on them, innately feels shame and guilt every time they hear the word 'Israel' or 'Jew'. That they have survived all brutality and persecution but still welcome all denominations; that they haven't sought revenge except on identified individuals, and that they are THRIVING, and STRONG, and succeed where others would fail, just rubs salt into the wound of contrition. Perhaps, also, to be shown up as mere lackeys of Jews, after centuries of thinking we were their masters is privately galling. Since I haven't ever felt this way, I'm trying to analyse the impossible.
The other explanation is the Tall Poppy Syndrome - if one head is higher than the rest, it gets lopped off to conform to the rest. However quietly Israel wants to live, its genius keeps rising to the top. Envy and greed rises in those experiencing it. "I'll have what they're having" - as long as I can just take it. As we always could... but never will be able to again. You go, Israel!!!

(12) Barbara J. Cohen, August 12, 2014 5:42 PM

It seems almost too good to be true to hear the TRUTH so impeccably summarized outside of Israel. I've already sent this out to my English speaking contacts with a subtitle: "how is it he's still alive?" Such frank talk could never happen outside Jewish circles here in France.

I am curious to know if this kind of honest (and gutsy) reporting exists anywhere else in the world?

Very good video and bang on target...God bless andrew colt..hope the sincere but uninformed people who protest israeli action will see this...Deal Lord please save Australia from becoming like europe which is sadly ruled by many appeasers of middle east with a view on OIL...ZION IS FOREVER...SHALOM

(9) leah gever, August 12, 2014 5:07 PM

Bless you. How can we spread your truthful assessment to the world.. the time is of the essence.

More Videos about Killing Jews and Infidels

This was nice but I think it would be better if they showed a couple more videos of Mullas promoting killing Jews or taking over the whole land. Also showing that the koran promotes killing all Jews and infidels. Because this is what this is all about - killing all Jews and Infidels.

Ian Ponsetto, August 13, 2014 12:20 AM

Frank I would really encourage you to actually READ the Koran, and not ignorantly say that it promotes killing all infidels and Jews. If that were the case, why is such a disproportionate amount of "Muslims" (who's radical violent views on non-Muslims is rejected by the greater Islamic community) calling for the death of Jews and infidels? Think (and educate yourself) before you speak/write.

(7) Rachel405, August 12, 2014 4:52 PM

Long Overdue

Thank you for your thoughtful, accurate, insightful video. Your presentation is long overdue. It goes straight to the heart of the matter. Please continue to inform the world of the truth.

(6) TOMAS GREENBERGER, August 12, 2014 4:24 PM

Excellent Analysis

Thank you Mr. Bolt for the courage to speak the truth

Thank you Mr. Bolt. G-d bless you!

(4) Sara Yoheved Rigler, August 12, 2014 11:19 AM

Bravo!!! So well said! But how can we get it to the people who need to hear it? Are all of us just "preaching to the choir" of those who already agree with our position? Is there any way to get the Jewish anti-Israel demonstrators to see this video?

(3) Linda Anderson, August 12, 2014 1:16 AM

Great video.

(2) Dvirah, August 11, 2014 6:08 PM

Thank You, Mr. Bolt

May you be strengthed.

Thank you for this calm, measured and effective editorial. The short clips help a lot. I also appreciate that you used them thoughtfully in ways to prevent trauma to the viewers.
