Watch all of The Rebel's reports from our trip to Israel

Rebel Staff

The only thing the mainstream media hates more than the United States is Israel.

The media hate it; leftists hate it; the UN hates it. And they’re all obsessed by it — a tiny sliver of land with just eight and a half million people.

So what’s it really like? And how does it survive as the only free democracy with full civil rights for women and minorities, including their Muslim minority, in a region that is full of violent revolutions, terrorism and medieval theocracies?

Well, The Rebel wants to show you.

Six journalists from The Rebel as well as about 50 fans are flying to Israel to go on a fact-finding tour — to see everything from the Israeli security fence, to Israel's border with Syria, and even the settlements in the West Bank.

We’ll show you what it’s really like — the Israel that you never hear about from the mainstream media.

You can watch all the videos from our trip below.

sheila reports 70 % of Sderot children have PTSD symptoms —thats my expertise and from 2014-2016 my non profit supervised and funded training the Jerusalem Herzog Hospital PTSD Center in Clinical PTSD Research with DSM classified PTSD victims using our unique methods which are the only methods worldwide proven to reduce blood cortisol levels by up to 24% within 30 muinutes of self application (the stress indicator chemical) AND OUR METHODS CAN BE TAUGHT TO YOUNG SCHOOL CHILDREN IN only several hours training. I have presented worldwide and would happily teach school teachers and kids in Canada too. We are old city centered and I would happily interview with Ezra.

a very lovable genuine Jew Aryeh—bless him —we live in an unjust hypocritical world and Jews need to take responsibility for exemplifying the solution, being ethical, and even Holy -—-we can only judge the Jews by those who are living this genuine model -not the phonies and we need to examine only behavior as today-in every group --there are lots of phonies —-look for real Jews and Aryeh smells like one!

What frustrates me most is all of my low-information friends who believe every word from the mainstram media. I must sound like a mad man when I tell them of 15-second warnings and the monstrous hatred of Muslims – yes Muslims – of Israel. All they hear is how big bad Israel are using weapons of war against the beleagered Palestinians. What they don’t hear is the massive psychological toll these rocket attacks take on children. Jews were in the area three-thousand years ago but jihadis want us dhimis to believe that they only came in back in 1948. Neither do people realize that Obama was right, there are 57 states. They’re all Islamic states but there’s only 1 Jewish state in all the world. If some naive dufus tells me about how bad Israel treats Palestinians, I’ll certainly give them an ear full of facts to counter the cow poop shoveled out over the airwaves daily by Israel-hating socialist useful idiots of Jihad.

Love the Rebel and rarely comment but this is important! I am a 69 year old Christian but have had Jewish best friends since I was a boy but they and myself do NOT support ultra Orthodox Zionists as do millions of modern Jews around the world! Of course, I too consider Hamas a terrorist organization but there are many intelligent, reasonable Palestinians who want peace and it is critical that they be engaged. I totally support the many Jews for Palestine organizations who want a fair and honest peace + solution to this endless conflict! It is 2018!! and long overdue to have an honest resolution to this problem since Palaestina came into being in 135 AD! Please educate yourselves about this and everything in your lives! AND
Always praying for the best for our world!!!
