Israel's Targetted Assassinations: Snipers Kill Political Opponents: Hamas, Fatah, Israeli children.This is the way terrorism must be fought. It needs to be decapitated. It needs to be discouraged with overwhelming force. It needs to be met with greater terror. I know this is not politically correct. I know we're all supposed to give lip service to the "peace process." I know it is not considered kosher to encourage Israel to take out its terrorist enemies the way the U.S. takes out its own. I know I will be roundly condemned by the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the self-proclaimed Arab-American leaders for this position. I don't care. I say this proudly as an American of Arab ancestry.
Prepare for the gnashing of teeth over the death of Hamas leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin, targeted in an Israeli rocket attack yesterday.
Weak-kneed Europeans will condemn Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. Misinformed Americans will see it as a provocative action by the Jewish state. And the Arab world will threaten fire-and-brimstone retaliation.
My reaction? What took so long? Can I hear the Hallelujah chorus, please?

I don't care. Three cheers for the death of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.
Who was Yassin? He was a terrorist clothed in the garb of a holy man. He repeatedly said the land of Israel is "consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgment Day." Well, Judgment is here at least for Yassin.
"The so-called peace path is not peace and it is not a substitute for jihad and resistance," said Yassin. It makes you wonder why his followers are so upset. Yassin got just what he said he wanted martyrdom. That's what he had sent countless boys, young men and even girls to carry out in suicide attacks on Jews.
Yassin didn't have the blood of Jews alone on his hands. He also ordered the murder of Arabs who he believed had collaborated with Israel in any way. Sometimes all Arabs needed to do to be named as collaborators was practice the Christian faith.
So, good riddance to Yassin. May Yasser Arafat's day be near. May the head of the Al-Aqsa Martyr's Brigade be next. May Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah meet his maker sooner rather than later.
I know I will be roundly condemned by the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the self-proclaimed Arab-American leaders for this position. I don't care. I say this proudly as an American of Arab ancestry.
America is at war. It's not a war with Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida terrorist network alone. We are engulfed in a full-scale, global war with Islamist, jihadist terrorism and all these groups are allied against America, against Christians around the world and against Jews in and outside of Israel.
It's just that simple, and someone needs to say it. No, I do not say that this war is a global conflict between all Muslims and the West. Clearly, it is not that simple nor that dire. In Iraq and Afghanistan, we are battling the terrorists side-by-side with Muslims who want to live in freedom. And, ultimately, that's what this struggle is about freedom vs Islamo-fascism.
Some try to stay on the sidelines like the new leadership in Spain and the old leadership in France. There are no sidelines in this war. There is no neutral ground.
Like Winston Churchill told Neville Chamberlain after the latter met with Adolph Hitler in an effort to make peace: "You had a choice between war and dishonor and you chose dishonor. And you shall have war."
That's our choice today: War, dishonor or surrender to Islamo-tyranny. Three cheers for Israel's bold move in the assassination of this bloodthirsty murderer. May it be just the beginning of a brand new "peace process."

What was not mentioned in this article was that the old and crippled Yassin was not harmless. He had been cripple since the age of 12 years, and founded Hamas in 1987 - as a crippled old man.
Unfortunately, the situation in Israel, Palestine and the World at large has not changed much since this article was first published.
"In 1920, Great Britain was given the responsibility by the League of Nations to oversee the Mandate over the geographical territory known as Palestine with the express intention of reconstituting within its territory a Jewish National Home. The territory in question stretched from the Mediterranean Sea to the eastern boundary of Mandatory Palestine, which was a border that would separate it from what was to become the future state of Iraq.
In 1921, however, Churchill unilaterally gave away most of this territory to the Hashemite dynasty to create what later became known as Jordan.
Why the Oslo Accords Should Be Abrogated by Israel
A Jurisprudential Memorandum for the New Prime Minister
By Louis Rene Beres
Taken by itself, the fact that the Oslo accords do not constitute authentic treaties under the Vienna Convention - because they link a state with a nonstate party - does not call for abrogation. But as the nonstate party in this case just happens to be a terrorist organization whose leaders must be punished for their egregious crimes, any agreement with this party that offers rewards rather than punishments is entirely null and void. Significantly, in view of the peremptory expectation known in law as Nullum crimen sine poena, "No crime without a punishment," the state party in such an agreement - here the State of Israel - violates international law by honoring the agreement.
According to Principle I of the binding Nuremberg Principles: "Any person who commits an act which constitutes a crime under international law is responsible therefore and liable to punishment." It is from this principle, which applies with particular relevance to Hostes humani generis ("Common enemies of humankind") and which originates in three separate passages of the Jewish Torah, that each state's obligation to seek out and prosecute terrorists derives. Hence, for Israel to honor agreements with terrorists - agreements that require, among other pertinent violations - the release of thousands of other terrorists - is to dishonor the very meaning of international law.
Prime Minister Netanyahu, please take heed. International law does not require compliance with the Oslo Accords. It requires abrogation of these illegal agreements.

IN THESE PSYCHO-POLITICAL circumstances it would be very gutsy to aim to win instead of insecurely trying to conciliate an in-your-face uncooperative "peace partner."
We blabber about "occupation" without asking by which line Arabs demarcate areas where a sovereign Jewish existence might possibly be accepted. Is it the 1949 line? 1947? None at all? Does "occupation" refer only to territories we have held since 1967 or also where Jews settled in 1870?

Whilst there have been many attempts to solve the chronological riddle of the Bible's synchronisms of reigns of the kings of Israel and Judah and their synchronism with other Ancient Near Eastern Nations, no other research is based on a simple mathematical formula which could, if it is incorrect, be disproved easily. To date, no one has been able to dismiss the mathematical results of this research.

Is it really terrorism, or something far worse? I would say worse. What is the true terrorism - the generation of fear, so that "the hearts of many will grow cold", as Jesus says of the end of days. And why such fear? Has it not and does it not, generate a surrendering of 'rights' to governments; a surrendering of moral rectitude to a minority to determine the values of our conscience for us? Has it not resulted in a governmental form of 'terrorism' and a denial of true humanity. People are afraid and so have turned to their governments or radical individuals, instead of God, for security. But the terror gets worse and will. Why? you might say. Consider this:
Arthur Pike [freemason] designed a plan for world conquest and wrote of it in a letter to Mazzini dated August 15, 1871. He said three future world wars [2 having taken place] would prepare the world for the New World Order. In the third world war "we shall unleash the Nihilists and atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, [what does this remind you of- the so-called Islamic terrorist threat] will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirit will from that moment be without a compass (direction), anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the pure light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view, a manifestation which will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." Des Griffin, FOURTH REICH OF THE RICH 71-72 (1989). And what is their 'god': "The Masonic religion should be, by all of us initiates of the high degrees, maintained in the purity of the Luciferian doctrine. . . Yes, Lucifer is God, and unfortunately Adonay (Jesus) is also God. For the eternal law is that there is no light without shade, no beauty without ugliness, no white without black, for the absolute can only exist as two Gods: darkness being necessary to light to serve as its foil as the pedestal is necessary to the statue, and the brake to the locomotive." [this is taoism etc-me] "The doctrine of Satanism is a heresy; and the true and pure philosophic religion is the belief in Lucifer, the equal of Adonay (Jesus); but Lucifer, God of Light and God of Good, is struggling for humanity against Adonay, the God of darkness and evil." "La Femme et l'enfant dans la Franc-Maconnerie Universelle," A.C. De La Rive, p. 588; Lady Queenborough, pp. 220-221.
That speaks for itself. The devil, himself, is behind this. The terrorists are nothing compared to those who are using them, and you will ultimately destroy them. I speak to any muslim thinking of taking up arms against America etc. Don't be a fool! You will be doing EXACTLY what they want.

Trevor made an interesting observation. I guess the situation, like any other situation can be examined from different philosophical levels. When looking at the big picture, then yes. It is the forces of good and evil playing their role on the face of this planet and making sure that humans are always busy spilling each others blood.
I however, look at things from a down to earth, daily, human practical level and when analyzing the troubles in the middle east (and their cause) always run into one simple conclusion.
It is just a money thing !
The so called “Palestinian Intifada” is nothing but money/business changing hands.. Someone is getting paid large amounts of money from someone just to stir troubles in the middle east.
I maintain and always did that this “Palestinian uprising” hardly has anything to do with the Palestinians really wanting a state and everything to do with countries like Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other vegetables wanting to bring about the destruction of Israel while channeling big amount of cash to terrorist organizations in the area to ensure they continue to push this agenda further (Check out Yasser Arafat’s bank accounts around the world while his people are starving).
Not to mention those countries trying to create pressure on the US and to achieve various political goals in the process.
I think that after the war in Iraq and after Israel starting to eliminate the receiving ends of blood money terrorist godfathers in the area, we are finally starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Off course that this light can prove much brighter once Israel introduces Arafat to a missile just like they did to that other Hamas creep (Yassin). So I hope anyway....
Whether the Palestinians like it or not. I think that Israel & the US are doing them a great favor by ensuring that their “sufferings” stops being a marketable merchandise by terrorist groups in the area.
It is very unfortunate for the Palestinians, but the list of terror godfathers yet to be eliminated is still long.....until such time the Palestinians and their “cause” will continue to suffer and be bought & sold by other Arab countries, leading them to nowhere but the cemetery.
There can be peace between groups, only through Jesus, because He alone has brought peace and made all men, one Man, unto God. The very Land the Palestinians seek to take for themselves is the very Land God promises to His children. This includes the Jews, the tribes of Israel, and the faithful in Christ. Through Jesus, the Palestinians are brought into the Abrahamic covenant and the promises.
In John 10 we see that He [Jesus] has to bring other flocks, besides the Jews, to the sheepfold and make ONE flock. This process will ultimately be fulfilled to it's greatest measure on the Mts. of Israel - see Ezekiel 34 - 37. It is THERE that God will pour out His Spirit to the fullness expressed in those words. Why? Because He will have to deal with, and heal, the generations of hatred, distrust, pain and suffering of those He calls there. So He will make ONE flock, from Jew and gentile.
Also, that the Arabic tribes [though not all] will take part in this. See Isa 21:13-15; 60:7. It is there that He will defend His people against all comers and deliver them like in Egypt. To the point they will even forget the Exodus, and think of it as a small thing.
Also, those praying against the 'dividing' of the land are against the purposes of God. Consider Joel 3:1-21. This is how God brings the judgement on the nations responsible AND on those nations around Israel who hate it.
We need more than enlightenment to God's purposes, in these situations, we need the understanding; or we will be decieved.
