The New Jewish Legion
American and other volunteers who help defend Israel and Jewish community TODAY
The New Jewish Legion is a group of Jewish defenders from around the world who seek to offer additional security to the Jewish community around the world as well as to help in the defense of Jews in Israel, and in isolated "settlements" in Judea, Samaria and Gaza.
The Jewish Legion encourages aliyah to Israel and offers courses in self-defense, Ulpan- Hebrew, and in Jewish philosophy and identity. The Jewish Legion works in coordination with the Hatikva Youth Movement, and Victims of Arab Terror International.
The Jewish Legion is presently seeking to create a special unit that will use dogs to detect and prevent terrorist attacks and infiltration into Jewish towns in Israel.
The Jewish Legion also seeks to create a unit within the IDF, composed of volunteers from abroad who will be given special training to defend roads and towns in Yesha.
In North America, Europe, Israel, South America, South Africa and Ukraine the Legion is actively recruiting. In North America the Legion has already commenced training young Jews in hand-to-hand combat, navigation, first aid, security guard courses, geography, Hebrew and more.
In Israel, a handful of Legion volunteers with military experience have already arrived to offer advice and to help wih guard duty in remote outposts.
In the U.S. and in Israel, the Legion seeks political, financial and technological support to widen the scope of operations.
In the U.S. the Legion seeks to team up with existing commercial licensed security companies to offer a wide range of licensing and job opportunities to Legion recruits, to sustain operation costs.

DOG UNIT TO SAVE LIVES
Could it be that Israel is not doing everything it could to defend Jews because of fear of international opinion? I think we all know the unfortunate answer to that question. Clearly, Israeli leaders refrain from taking certain security measures because they are frightened to upset the Americans, and because they want to look pretty in the eyes of the world.
However, most people are not aware to what extent this fear
extends. On March 17, Doron Meiri wrote a two-page spread in Yediot Achronot, Israel's largest daily newspaper, titled: "Dogs can save lives". Meiri interviews several experts who conced that dogs are hardly being used by the IDF and Israeli police. The experts claim that many lives can be saved if only dogs would be used more to detect bombs in crowded places and to guard "checkpoints" and Jewish towns from terrorist invasions.
The experts explain that the reason dogs are not being used more is because of the association with the Nazis and the Holocaust. Yes, Israeli politicians are scared that people will compare IDF soldiers to Nazis. The use of dogs will create an association with the Holocaust? And Jews being butchered like sheep by modern-day Nazis does not remind us of the Holocaust?
Fortunately, the Jewish Legion, an independent unit of volunteers from Israel and around the world is more concerned with saving lives than the way they will be perceived on German television. The Jewish Legion announced that they would spearhead a campaign to enlist volunteers to undergo the necessary training to breed and train sniffing and guard dogs.
People interested in joining the Jewish Legion for this specific course or for any of the other programs offered, can visit www.JewishLegion.net or call in Israel 054 876 709 or in U.S. 917 662 4898
The Jewish Legion also offers courses in Ulpan, Jewish philosophy and self-defense and is launching programs to recruit volunteers for the IDF, for "settlements" and offer a wide variety of programs in Israel, including Torah and Academic accredited educational training.
