In February 2016 The King's Calendar Website was given a new look and you can see the new site HERE. The King's Calendar Writers Journal has a new FRONTPAGE which can be viewed HERE
The New Kingscalendar has access to Various Social Media
Years ago we had to disable comments at kingscalendar because of all the pornographic spam. Today spam filters keep out the unwanted people and allow the rest to make comments, to post to Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Refugees are flooding Europe, and due to a shortage of temporary housing, 21 refugees are being housed in the former Buchenwald camp near Weimar, Germany. - (Ironic given the Muslims say the holocaust never happened.) - Germany "took our Jews and gave us Arabs". The comments by Patrick Devedjian came as France began taking some of the thousands of refugees arriving in Germany and were taken sensitively in light of the refugee crisis in Europe.
During classified briefings Secretary of State last week John Kerry told lawmakers that he has not read the side deals, never possessed a copy of them, and approved the nuclear agreement without knowing their details. Lawmakers say they aren't satisfied with the explanation of side deals on Iran 's nuclear program that weren't sent to Congress, and still want to see the original documents....The Foreign Ministry claims that European governments provide 100-200 million euros annually to anti-Israel leftist groups. Some of these organizations are associated with and actively support terror groups..."Many people around the world have been fed a lie being victims of a massive propaganda hoax. The lie is that the Palestinians want freedom by having their own state. Actually, Israel knows full well that this can't possibly be about freedom because Arabs in Israel have more freedom than Arabs anywhere else in the Middle East.
In 1979, President Carter stabbed the back of the Shah of Iran, "the US policeman of the Gulf " and facilitated the Ayatollahs' rise to power; in 2015, his worldview has dealt a lethal blow to the Iranian opposition, catapulting the Ayatollahs to an unprecedented strategic height, domestically, regionally and globally, thereby jeopardizing critical US economic and defense interests, bringing terrorism closer to the North American continent. A common sense alternative to the agreement with Iran assumes that reality - and not hope (or wishful-thinking) - must be the basis for a national security strategy. Driving at night -- in the Iranian darkness -- would be much safer with the headlights on rather than reliance on hope.
Millions of Iranians took part in the annual "Death to Israel Day" in Iran on Friday, ironically coinciding with the twice-extended deadline for a deal on the Islamic regime's nuclear program that apparently will be extended yet again. Meanwhile tens of thousands of Iranians took to the streets of Tehran chanting "down with America" and "death to Israel. The Syrian rebels, calling themselves Jaysh Al-Islam or the "Army of Islam," composed of approximately 25,000 soldiers following the unification of 60 rebel factions, released a bloody video showing the brutal slaughter 18 of ISIS fighters
Tel Aviv University art professor Sefy Hendler attempted to book reservations online at the Louvre and Paris' Sainte-Chapelle, a medieval church, for a group of twelve of his top protégés only to find that neither could accommodate him. Both are public institutions. Perplexed, he reapplied in the name of two fictitious schools, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Florence , for the same time slot he had originally wanted, this time meeting with success....Have you noticed that Israel is not often in the news lately? Even occasional rocket attacks from Gaza and Israel's response are'conveniently' overlooked and under-reported. The international media have been using Israel as a'filler' or a kicking dummy, often inventing and even soliciting stories from Israel when there is nothing to report from anywhere else, targeting and satisfying anti-Jewish bigotry of their own and of the audience!
Hamas forces carried out a brutal campaign of abductions, torture, and unlawful killings against Palestinians accused of "collaborating" with Israel and others during Operation Protective Edge last year. The AI report reveals that Hamas carried out at least 23 extrajudicial executions during the war....Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said that Hezbollah is in a dire state - its worst since the onslaught of the 1982 First Lebanon War. Nasrallah said his party is in the midst of fighting an existential battle against ISIS and other extremist groups in Syria and on Lebanon's border. Also challenging Hezbollah's regime are Sunni Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, which Nasrallah said have joined forces against Hezbollah.
School textbooks are considered, by the Ayatollahs, a critical means to mobilize the youth, charting the roadmap to the final military victory over the infidel USA and the West. Hence, the crucial relevance of school textbooks to the Congressional debate on "the framework agreement with Iran" and on the clear and present threat of a nuclear threshold Iran to vital US interests....In 1981, Israel's destruction of Iraq's nuclear infrastructure – carried out by Israeli planes which flew, unchallenged, through Jordanian and Saudi airspace - snatched Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other pro-US Arab regimes from the lethal jaws of Iraq's Saddam Hussein, also sparing the US a nuclear confrontation (or grave humiliation) in the 1991 First Gulf War.
The talk of doubling trade volume comes as Israel and China plan to discuss a Free Trade Agreement this year, amid rapidly growing bilateral ties. Israel has been actively developing an Asian alliance, boosting ties with China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and India. The incoming Chinese Ambassador Zhan Yongxin presented his diplomatic credentials to Rivlin, he said, "I bring with me the greetings of the Chinese President, and wish to express my appreciation of the warm welcome I have received in Israel."
Future presidents may not honour any deal that President Barack Obama signs with Tehran. Senator Tom Cotton said that he sees a potential military confrontation with Iran down the road if the US signs the deal with Iran. "If we agreed to the kind of proposal the Obama administration has made, then military confrontation may be further off, but it might also be nuclear." Former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak said that "it would just take one night" to launch an effective strike to set back Iran's nuclear program.
Congressional power has been dramatically bolstered since the Vietnam War, Watergate, Iran Gate and globalization, which have enhanced the involvement of most legislators in international issues, upgraded the oversight capabilities of Congress, dramatically elevated the quality and quantity of some 15,000(!) Capitol Hill staffers and have restrained the presidency. However, Congress has often abdicated its constitutional power in the area of foreign policy, failing to fully leverage the power of the purse: funding, defunding and "fencing."
Unlike the USSR which adhered to the principle of mutual assured destruction (MAD), the apocalyptic worldview of the Ayatollahs -- who had no compunction in dispatching 500,000 children to clear minefields during Iran's war against Iraq - considers MAD-driven martyrdom an inducement, a sublime prize. Furthermore, the Ayatollahs believe in the imminent emergence of the 12th (Hidden) Imam, the Mahdi -- Muhammad's successor - through apocalyptic events, which could be accelerated via military confrontations, including nuclear.
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas used the platform of the Arab League summit in Sharm el-Shekh, Egypt, this Saturday to attack his 'unity partner' Hamas, making a subtle call for the Arab states to take military action against the Gaza-based Muslim Brotherhood offshoot.... "Israeli intelligence was eavesdropping on closed-door nuclear negotiations between Iran and the US, then passing the classified information along to the US Congress."... In 2009, Obama travelled to Egypt , where he later supported the Muslim Brotherhood's Mohammed Morsi, who eventually was ousted for being too extreme...As Mitt Romney pointed out in 2012, Obama's foreign policy has been about isolating friends of the United States while supporting or appeasing enemies...
While President Obama harshly criticizes Prime Minister Netanyahu's attitude toward the Palestinian issue, US national security and commercial interests, as well as US-Israel relations and Obama's legacy transcend, by far, the Palestinian issue.
Against the backdrop of 1,400 years of no intra-Muslim peaceful coexistence, and in view of the endemic civic majority-minorities restlessness in most Western democracies, one should not underestimate the evolving political, cultural, economic Jewish-Arab coexistence in the Jewish State, one of the world's leading democracies, which confronts clear and present lethal dangers: daily terrorism and war launched by the brethren of its Arab minority.
Acting on direct orders from Mahmoud Abbas, PA's special forces raided all nine PA-ruled West Bank towns and detained 500 Hamas suspects. Abbas ordered the operation because he had discovered that Hamas had been hatching a plot for some weeks to stage an armed uprising against the Palestinian Authority. Around 5,198 foreign citizens were expelled from Norway in 2013. A very high percentage of them radical Muslims - and it's had a dramatic effect on the country's crime rate. (Violent crime has dropped by 30%).
The seeds of Jewish destruction lie in passively enabling the enemy to humiliate us. Only when the enemy succeeds in turning the spirit of the Jew into dust and ashes in life, can he turn the Jew into dust and ashes in death. During the Holocaust it was after the enemy had humiliated the Jews, trampled them underfoot, divided them, deceived them, afflicted them, drove brother against brother, only then could he lead them, almost without resistance, to the gates of Auschwitz. Therefore, at all times and whatever the cost, safeguard the dignity and honour of the Jewish people.
Pollard, who worked as a civilian intelligence analyst for the US Navy, was arrested in 1985 and indicted in 1987 on one count of passing classified information to an ally, Israel. He gave up his right to a trial and entered into a plea agreement, which was intended to spare both Israel and the US the embarrassment and damage that a lengthy trial might incur. Despite the governments acknowledgment that Pollard fulfilled all the terms of his plea agreement, the US government reneged. He was sentenced to life despite the plea deal.
Ibrahim Alaimoa, one of the homeowners, denounced Hamas for bulldozing his modest home without warning, and he was unable take out any furniture and clothing for him and his family. Hamas claimed that the houses were built without a permit on government property. No reports by 'Israel-friendly' correspondents, no condemnation by the 'Useless Nothing' or NGOs, the White House is also quiet!
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu instructed Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to move forward with a plan to demolish some 400 PA structures illegally built in the West Bank with European funding. The order came shortly after an exposé in the Daily Mail claimed that the EU sank tens of millions of euros into homes which were not granted building permits.
"It's inconceivable that the thinking that we hold most sacred should cause the entire umma (multinational community of Muslim believers) to be a source of anxiety, danger, killing and destruction for the rest of the world... Is it possible that 1.6 billion (Muslims) should want to kill the rest of the world's inhabitants - that is 7 billion - so that they themselves may live? Impossible!" - Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi delivered a highly unusual and surprising speech to Islamic clerics at Cairo's Al-Azhar University, a week before attack in Paris
No International Condemnation! .... Saudi Arabia is building a 600-mile-long "Great Wall" - a combined fence and ditch - to separate the country from Iraq to the north. The proposal had been discussed since 2006. The border zone now includes five layers of fencing with watch towers, night-vision cameras, and radar cameras. Riyadh also sent an extra 30,000 troops to the area. (When Israel was building the anti-terror wall, to protect Jews from PA murderous attacks, the well-orchestrated anti-Israel international condemnation campaign was unleashed!)
One of the world's leading publishing houses has been forced to apologize for distributing atlases which literally erased Israel from the map. HarperCollins had been distributing the atlases via its subsidiary throughout Arab countries in the Middle East, depicting Jordan and Syria extending all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
Trans-Jordan was part of the Palestinian mandate, which was allocated for creation of a Jewish state by the League of Nations in 1922, in accordance with the Balfour Declaration. Therefore, its separation from Palestinian mandated land was an illegal act. Unfortunately, the dominant imperial powers, Britain and France, controlled the League of Nations which they used to rubber stamp their shady deals at the time. As a result of the deal, in 1922, in order to secure Britain 's financial interests in the Suez Canal, Sinai was given to Egypt by the British with the permission of King Hussein of Hejaz and Nejd, now Saudi Arabia. Jews were not asked! In return, Britain transferred control of the land east of the river Jordan to Hussein's son, Abdullah. Control of the Golan Heights was transferred to the French-run Syrian Mandate and in exchange the United Kingdom got control of the newly discovered oil fields in Kirkuk.
Unlike all other Western democracies – where the executive branch of government dominates the legislature, especially in the area of international relations and defense - the US Constitution laid the foundation for the world's most powerful legislature, and for an inherent power struggle over the making of foreign policy between the legislature and the executive, two independent, co-equal and co-determining branches of government. Moreover, while the president is the commander-in-chief, presidential clout depends largely on congressional authorization and appropriation in a system of separation of powers and checks and balances, especially in the areas of sanctions, foreign aid, military assistance, trade agreements, treaty ratification, appointment confirmation and all spending.
Mahmoud Abbas has said he supported Egypt's crackdown on tunnels linking the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip to the Sinai Peninsula. The Egyptian military has stepped up the destruction of tunnels from Gaza that it says are used by the Palestinian movement to smuggle arms, food and money. The army says it has destroyed more than 1,600 such tunnels since Morsi was overthrown. Egypt has also begun setting up a buffer zone along its border with the Gaza Strip, which will see hundreds of homes demolished, in order to prevent fighter infiltration and arms smuggling.
Mohsen Ghomi, an adviser to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said, "Confronting Israel is the common goal of all Muslim countries." "The (Islamic) Revolution's missiles, in north and south (of Iran ), cover the entire occupied territories (Israel)," said the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards, Maj.- Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari...Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv confirmed that it treated Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's daughter. The hospital said that Haniyeh's daughter was one of over a thousand Gazans that the hospital treats every year... A three-month-old baby was killed and eight people injured when a car, driven by known terrorist - 21 year-old Abdur Rahman Slodi, slammed into pedestrians at a Jerusalem light railway stop.
The Palestinian Arabs voted for the terrorist group Hamas as their government. IS, however, are Islamist mass-murdering terrorists for whom no one has ever voted or granted legal legitimacy to rule. Who is more evil, terrorists who have the legitimacy of having been voted for by almost 4 million Palestinian people, or a bunch of rag-tag un-legitimized terrorists. Hamas and its rockets are housed and protected by the United Nations through its UNRWA schools and other facilities. IS, for now, isn't being protected by the United Nations...
It was primarily the Palestinians' refusal to make the symbolic step of recognizing that Israel is the nation state of the Jewish people that would live in peace alongside a nation state of the Palestinian people that sunk the talks. But acknowledging that would mean they understood that the political culture of the Palestinians - in which (fake) national identity is inextricably tied to rejection of Israel' s existence...
Spokesman Ahmad Assaf revealed on official PA TV two weeks ago, on March 19, that the PA is using its non-member observer status in the United Nations (UN), given in 2012, as a "weapon" against Israel. Palestinian Media Watch translated the comments. Given the UN status, the PA has been "waving around" the threat of going to the International Criminal Court for around two years according to Assaf: "we've obtained the release of the prisoners, we blackmailed (that is in quotation marks) (Israel), and we've taken important positions because we have a card that we're waving around."
It is disturbing and chilling that the Obama administration could allow the OIC, along with the Shariah doctrine to which it adheres, to suppress free speech on a global basis via control of the Internet. Authoritarian governments, such as those in Saudi Arabia and Iran, have already been working to control the Internet and now they will no doubt move to fill the power vacuum caused by America's unilateral retreat.
Israel can expect to face international isolation and possible sanctions from countries and companies across the world if Benjamin Netanyahu fails to endorse a framework agreement with the Palestinians, US President Barack Obama cautioned Israel ahead of a meeting with the Prime Minister Netanyahu. Senator John McCain stole the show earlier in the day, winning multiple, rousing, standing ovations from the largely Democrat audience by excoriating President Obama's "feckless foreign policy."
Washington Post, "For five years, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was [supposedly] a world in which 'the tide of war is receding....' Secretary John Kerry displayed this mindset, [saying that] Russia's invasion of Ukraine is a 19th century act in the 21st century.... Unfortunately, Russian President, Putin, has not received the memo on the 21st century behavior. Neither has China's president Xi Jinping, who is engaged in gunboat diplomacy against Japan and weaker nations of Southeast Asia.... Assad is waging a very 20th century war against his own people...."
As his audience burned US and Israeli flags and stamped on placards depicting President Obama, President Hassan Rouhani intoned: "I say to those delusional people who say the military option is on the table that they should change their eye glasses." His meaning was clear to his mass audience: Iran no longer faces any military threats, either from the United States or Israel.The Iranian officer pressed on to suggest "the Americans" were cowards, who "cannot hide themselves in the sea since the entire Middle East region, Western Europe, the Persian Gulf, the Sea of Oman and the Straits of Hormuz are monitored by us!"
The number of terrorist attacks targeting Jews in Judea and Samaria increased significantly in 2013 over the previous year, according to a report published by Israel s domestic security agency, the Shin Bet. Overall, 1,271 terrorist attacks were reported in 2013, up from just 578 in 2012. Six Israelis were killed in terror attacks in 2013. Three of those killed over the last year were the victims of knife attacks, two were shot by Palestinian snipers, and one was executed after being abducted by Arab terrorists.
The Israeli team in the under-18 division of the World Youth Chess Championship has been forced to compete anonymously. The event, which is being held in the United Arab Emirates city of Abu Dhabi, features the team not under the Israeli flag - but under the ambiguous listing of the Federation Internationale des Echecs or World Chess Federation. In August, the International Tennis Federation (ITF) fined the Israeli team for the Davis Cup, after they refused to play a match scheduled on the holy day of Yom Kippur
European auditors said EU should stop funding to Palestinian civil servants in Gaza because they are providing no public service. 22% of the employees in the Gaza Health Ministry and 24% of its Education Ministry drew salaries even though they were not working. In response to the report the EU Commission said "the PA must continue supporting its workers in Gaza as a key element of maintaining its presence in Gaza and the unity of a future Palestinian state." (That means that EU has no intention to follow the recommendation of its own auditors)
They Terrorize Jews in Israel and are Cruel to Animals. Jordan's parliament has adopted a bill which stipulates that violent action against Israel will not be considered a terrorist act. Steinitz cited statements in the PA's educational literature that treat Jews and Zionists as "sub-human creatures" which "must be taken care of." The United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted, 110 to 7, to declare 2014 the "International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People" during an unprecedented vote that human rights observers say was marred by anti-Israel fervor.
Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council, is under fire for tweeting "America and yes I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution." According to the Free Beacon, Elibiary has served on the department's "Countering Violent Extremism Working Group," as well as its "Faith-based Security and Communications Advisory Committee." He is also a strong supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Israel Air Force attacked a military base near the northern Syrian city of Latakia. The target, according to the Obama administration official, was a consignment of Russian-made SA-8 Gecko Dgreen mobile missiles in the Syrian port of Latakia to prevent its delivery to Hizballah. Other foreign sources said Israel also struck a similar consignment in Damascus
Therefore the statements that need to be made by every Muslim teacher, school, mosque and organization that does not support Muslim terror must be unequivocal. They need to state that any Muslim who targets any civilian for death - whether that civilian is Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu or of no religion - goes to hell.
The San Francisco and NY-based FTV Capital invested $40MN in Israel's Credorax, joining prior investors such as Blumberg Capital and Japan's Mobile Internet Capital. Blumberg Capital invested $3MN in Israel's FeeX (Globes, August 29, 2013).
Survey finds comparatively high unemployment rate in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The survey showed that the unemployment rate in the Gaza Strip was 27.9 percent compared with 16.8% in the West Bank in the second quarter of 2013. As far as the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, we have to get to the root cause of the problem and the root cause was and remains the persistent refusal to recognize the Jewish State in any boundary. PA is teaching hate in their schools. The PA chairman insists that Jews will not be allowed to live in the Palestinian state in his vision
Eyewitnesses reported that one of the participants, Nizar Banat, asked the minister why the PA and President Mahmoud Abbas were continuing to conduct security coordination with Israel while fighting "normalization" with Israelis. In response, the angry minister called on the activist to "stop barking." The minister's remark drew sharp criticism from the participants, who demanded that he leave the conference instantly.
Some American counterterrorism analysts believe President Barack Obama's interest in capitalizing on the fear of chemical weapons is to encourage foreign intervention as occurred in Libya and Egypt. The goal is toppling the administration of President Bashar al-Assad and the Ba'ath Party by any means necessary. On Monday, May 31, Turkish security forces also reported that they discovered a cylinder containing sarin gas when searching the homes of Syrian militants from the al-Qaeda-linked Al-Nusra Front who were previously detained, the Turkish media reported. The gas was reportedly going to be used in a bomb.
The United States Senate unanimously backed a pro-Israel resolution calling for U.S. assistance for Israel, should it be forced to attack Iran in self-defence. Senate Resolution 65 condemns Iran's pursuit of nuclear capability and supports Israel 's right to self-defence and reaffirms the close security cooperation between the United States and Israel. Russia said that it would supply one of its most advanced anti-aircraft missiles to the Syrian government hours after the EU ended its arms embargo on the country's rebels. Israel quickly issued a thinly veiled warning that it would bomb the Russian S-300s if they were deployed in Syria as such a move would bring the advanced guided missiles within range of civilian and military planes in Israeli air space.
The source of the special US-Israel covenant dates back to the 14th century, through the Pilgrims of the16th century, the 1752 Liberty Bell, the Founding Fathers of the 18th century, the abolitionist and civil rights movements, the 1886 Statue of Liberty and contemporary USA, which is the most Judeo-Christian Western democracy.
How many more shocking acts of Islamic barbarism do the political idiots in Europe and US need to realise the threat of rising Islam? There are no moderate Muslim leaders, only those who justify terror and camouflage the real agenda of Islam - world domination!...A man, Mohamed Abdel Karim Dar, who was detained by the PA security forces in Hebron has lost the ability to speak as a result of severe torture. A representative of the Independent Commission for Human Rights It said that it had received complaints of torture and mistreatment against other branches of the PA security forces in the West Bank - 13 against the police, seven against the Preventive Security Service, seven against the General Intelligence Service and one against Military Intelligence. The organization said it had received another 23 complaints of torture and mistreatment at the hands of the Hamas police force in the Gaza Strip.
Since the fall of the Ottoman Empire at the end of WWI, Turkey has been having a territorial dispute with Syria, related to the enclaves populated by ethnic Turks. By instigating the demise of Assad regime, Turkey may have been planning reclamation of the Northern part of Syria. Egyptian policemen blocked the crossing into the Gaza Strip on Friday to protest against the kidnapping of Egyptian security forces in the Sinai. Police had placed barbed wire across the entrance to the border and closed the gates with chains, leaving hundreds of Palestinians stranded on both sides of the fence. (No international condemnation - unlike when Israel closed border in response to attacks from Gaza!)
Islamists Used Sarin and Blamed Assad? - UN human rights investigators have gathered testimony from casualties of Syria 's civil war and medical staff indicating that rebel forces have used the nerve agent Sarin. - Instead of praising this unusually prompt and frank report from the UN investigating body, UN and US officials immediately started question the validity of this report, not seeing collected data, because it does not support their anti-Assad agenda! -- Sunni Mosque Bombed in Baghdad - At least five people were killed and 30 others wounded after a bombing outside a Sunni mosque in northeastern Baghdad. The blast took place as worshippers were leaving the mosque in the al-Rashidiya neighbourhood following Friday prayers. There has been an uptick in violence lately between Shiites and Sunni Arabs. - No international condemnation or outcry? Just imagine the international response if this was Israeli attack!
Hamas movement has rejected a revised Middle East peace initiative put forward by the Arab League. Arab states appeared to soften their 2002 peace plan, acknowledging that Israelis and Palestinians may have to swap land in any eventual peace deal. "The so-called new Arab initiative is rejected by our people, by our nation(?) and no one can accept it," Haniyeh, prime minister of the Hamas government in the coastal enclave, said. "The initiative contains numerous dangers to our people in the occupied land of 1967, 1948 and to our people in exile." He was referring to the partition of British-mandate Palestine in 1948 when the United Nations voted to divide the territory into a Jewish state and an Arab state.
Only in Israel: a new app for android phones lets drivers know if they are about to drive into a mob of Arabs armed with firebombs and rocks. Such ambushes have killed and maimed many Israelis over the years, including a baby girl, Adelle Biton, who has been barely clinging to life in the Schneider Children's Hospital since last month. If you really want to know the foundation and motivation of the modern Islamic Jihad movement and what motivates Muslim individuals to perform horrendous act of terror, as well as why the West is losing the "War on Terror" you need to find and watch "The Stone Merchant" movie. This politically incorrect movie says it all!
At 65, Israel's economic indicators are among the world's best. For example, during the 2009-2012 global economic crisis Israel experienced a 14.7% growth of gross domestic product (GDP), the highest among OECD countries. Israel's 2012 GDP growth (3.3%) led the OECD which averaged 1.4%. Israel's 2012 GDP of $250BN catapulted 120 times since 1948.
Hamas, a former ally of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad, is training the rebel Free Syrian Army in eastern Damascus. Hamas has broken with its former Syrian host and fully embraced the patronage of Qatar. Iranian Ambassador to Turkey Alireza Bikdeli said "In the past three years, Turkey, with its constant resistance, showed us we can take what we want to take from Israel." In Tehran, the president unveiled two additional uranium-processing facilities at the central town of Ardakan, 120 km from large uranium mines in Saghand. Iran now threatens to quit the Non-Proliferation Treaty and so, carry on developing nuclear weapons away from international oversight like its North Korean partner.
The new war room will be manned 24 hours a day by some 20 soldiers who graduated from the IDF Cyber Shield course. The war room will allow the IDF to monitor and respond to any hacking attempt at all levels - from tank computers to the IDF chief of staff's personal computer. The information technology unit was initially established about ten years ago in order to ensure proper security levels for computers in the IDF and other security organizations and to provide encryption for important information, and to ensure smooth running of the IDF electronic data systems.
President Obama was misinformed by his advisors. The suggestion that Israel should concede Jewish geography, in order to secure Jewish demography, ignores demographic trends in Israel, in the Muslim world in general and west of the Jordan River in particular. These trends reaffirm that time is working in favor of Israel's Jewish demography. In 2013, in sharp contrast with projections issued by the demographic establishment, there is a 66% Jewish majority (6.3 million Jews) in the combined area of Judea, Samaria (1.66 million Arabs) and pre-1967 Israel (1.65 million Arabs), compared with a 40% Jewish minority in 1948 and a 9% Jewish minority in 1900. The Jewish majority benefits from a robust tailwind of fertility rate and migration, which could produce an 80% Jewish majority by 2035.
Although I have covered the issue of how long Joshua was Judge of Israel in other articles, today I thought that I might touch the subject again, and to make it easy to find, give it the 'How Long' title that many students use in their google searches. The biggest problem in relation to Israel's Period of the judges, is that the Chronological Data provided in the Book of Judges is excessive within the overall chronological claims of the Bible.
The Al Musanna Brigade of al Qaeda's Syrian arm, Jabhat al-Nusra, captured the highly strategic intersection of the Syrian, Israeli and Jordan borders, just east of the Golan, on Passover Eve. The jihadists have also seized Wadi ar-Raqqad which marks the Golan's eastern boundary and is one of Israel's water sources. This put the jihadists directly opposite 14 Israeli southern Golan villages and at a distance of 5-6 kilometers from one of Israel's earliest kibbutzim, Ein Gev, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.
Both countries, France and the United Kingdom , were main instigators and enforcers of the international arms blockade during the Israel 's War of Independence, hoping that advancing seven fully armed Muslim armies would finish what the Nazis started - Holocaust - genocide of Jews! But now they are threatening to unilaterally break an international arms embargo and supply weapons to Islamists in Syria ! Isn't it another example of blunt international anti-Semitic hypocrisy?
The abduction of 21 Philippine members of the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF), which has monitored a ceasefire zone between Syria and Israelsince 1974, has heightened security fears. Canada, Japan and Croatia have withdrawn their forces in recent months leaving only the Philippines, Austria and Indiain UNDOF. The UN has halted peacekeeping patrols in the Golan Heights amid fears of kidnapping and that fallout from the Syrian war could cause more countries to withdraw from its force. There is no the UN Security Council resolution of condemnation, no protests of 'peace-loving' idiots!
Thirteen years ago, researchers at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum began the grim task of documenting all the ghettos, slave labor sites, concentration camps and killing factories that the Nazis set up throughout Europe. The researchers have cataloged some 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps throughout Europe, spanning German-controlled areas from France to Russia and Germany itself, during Hitler's reign of brutality from 1933 to 1945...... Scores of violent Arab students forced the British Consul General, Sir Vincent Fean, to make a hasty departure from a university in Ramallah, where he came to deliver a lecture on Britain's policy in the Middle East and the prospects for peace. A consulate official confirmed that Fean was unable to deliver his prepared address due to the riots. In February 2000, Arab protesters at Bir Zeit threw stones at then visiting French Prime Minister Lionel Jospin, demanding he leave the university over a speech he delivered at Tel Aviv University in which he called Hizbullah a terrorist organization.
The security source further divulged a Fatah decision to allow the Brigades and other gunmen to carry out what is being described as "low-grade" attacks, meaning stoning throwing and Molotov cocktail attacks aimed at Israeli forces in the West Bank....The government must destroy all tunnels between Egypt and the Gaza Strip. Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood has close ties with the Hamas movement that runs Gaza...will not tolerate the two-way flow of smuggled arms through the tunnels that is destabilizing Sinai Peninsula. An estimated 30 percent of goods that reach Gaza's 1.7m Palestinians come through the tunnels, circumventing a blockade imposed by Israel for more than seven years...Some 25% Of Palestinian Prisoners Receive High School And College Education In Israeli Prisons.
Ethnocentrism -- judging other cultures by one's own standards -- is morally wrong, especially when motivated by superiority complex or racism. Benevolent ethnocentrism -- the assumption that other cultures are ready to embrace one's own standards and worldview - is morally flawed and strategically self-destructive. This reflects a superficial view of global complexity and undermines one's posture of deterrence in a world of intensifying disorder, and increasing hostility towards Western values. Free World leaders should not assume that cardinal democratic values such as life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, peaceful coexistence, and the belief that all men are created equal, could be adopted by most non-democratic cultures.
A young woman, Naomi Oni 20, was facially disfigured and almost lost her eyesight in a horrific unprovoked acid attack on the streets of London. She was on her way home from work when an unknown attacker dressed in a niqab threw a chemical substance at her, leaving the retail assistant with severe burns on her head, neck, arms, legs and body..... Hamas denied that its leader, Khaled Mashaal, had declared his acceptance of the two-state solution (reported by a Saudi-owned newspaper). "These claims are baseless," said Izzat al-Risheq, a senior Hamas official. " We will never agree to give the Zionist state one inch of the land of Palestine." (Enemies of the Jewish state lie but the international anti-Semites do not question their genocidal intentions!)
On 29 Nov, 1947 the UN General Assembly adopted resolution 181, which divided the remaining 18% of the Jewish Land to six unmanageable triangles with Jerusalem to be controlled by a "special international regime", inviting Arabs to attack and finish what Nazi Europe started! Israel became the first nation to skip a UN review of its human rights record without giving a reason - and then won a precedent-setting deferral. US diplomats have said the council is too focused on Israel. Israel, meanwhile, said last year that it would stop cooperating with the council. Israel has gone through one review before in 2008, when many delegations demanded it recognise and respect Palestinians' right to self-determination and a homeland. But the court and international anti-Semites do not respect Israel and the right of the Jewish state's existence!
Political Zionism is utopian by three: the dream to establish a Jewish State supported by international law, the dream to achieve the migration of a substantial element of the Jewish People to that State, and the dream to solve the problem of the entire Jewish People through the establishment of a Jewish State... (p. 171).
January 22, 2013 Israeli election. The Knesset is the youngest ever with a record number of women (26) and settlers (17). The discrepancy between rank and file Israeli Arabs on one hand and the Israeli Arab parties on the other hand is widening as the Israelization process of Israeli Arabs takes roots. Israeli Arabs are rapidly integrated into Israel's medical, pharmaceutical, banking, industrial, commercial, agricultural, cultural, sports and political infrastructures.
According to Hamas, 885 Palestinians have been killed since the uprising broke out against Bashar Assad nearly two years ago. A further 20,500 Palestinian refugees from Syria are trapped in Lebanon, including least 3,500 who fled last month from the fierce outbreak of violence in the Yarmouk refugee camp outside Damascus. For over 60 years Arabs and UN keep artificially inflated number of so-called Palestinian refugees in order to pressure and humiliate Israel. WWII created 100 million refugees. None of them or their dependents are now counted as a refugee! ... Abbas chose to re-emphasize that the Palestinian people remain on the path of struggle to realise "the dream of return" of the Palestinian refugees and their millions of descendants
Egyptian security forces in the Sinai Peninsula intercepted a shipment of American-made anti-tank and anti-aircraft missiles destined for the Gaza Strip. Late last month an attempt was made to smuggle 17 French-made TDI model rockets into the Gaza.
Yasser Arafat's widow, Suha, admitted that the late Palestinian leader planned the second intifada immediately after the failure of the Camp David, because he refused to negotiate. He said to her "I am going to start an intifada. They want me to betray the Palestinian cause. They want me to give up on our principles, and I will not do so." Her comments run contrary to claims that former prime minister Ariel Sharon's infamous visit to the Temple Mount triggered the intifada, which international media was eagerly propagated. It is not a revelation, but it is nice to see confirmation of what we already knew. This interview, not surprisingly, has not been shown by international media bigots!
An Arab human rights group based in London accused the Palestinian Authority of inhumane practices and human rights violations against Palestinian civilians. From June 2007 until the end of 2011, PA security forces detained 13,271 Palestinian citizens and 96 percent were subjected to various methods of torture, the report said. This resulted in the death of six detainees and caused "chronic illness" in others. Will We Hear Condemnation from UN?
Although Hamas agreed to a cease-fire with Israel, this did not mean that the movement has relinquished the "resistance to achieve the liberation of Palestine. Hamas's Minister for Prisoners Affairs, Atallah Abu al-Sabah, said that in the next war between Hamas and Israel, many Israelis will flee their country. Sabah stated that while "Palestinian fighters fought with a strong belief and high morale, the Israeli soldier fought with a defeatist spirit (he is probably right here, but this is due to Israeli governments' lack of vision and self-destructive policies). The fabric of Israeli society has been torn apart in the face of the resistance's strength". Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal said that "the resistance will soon occur in the West Bank too" and although Hamas agreed to a cease-fire with Israel, this did not mean that the movement has relinquished the "resistance to achieve the liberation of Palestine."
Intel Corp. CEO Paul Otellini is in Israel: "We are perhaps the largest private employer in Israel (about 8,000 employees in the company's development and production centers), and most of those employees have technological know-how. Some of our most sophisticated engineering efforts are carried out in Israel.... We have been in Israel for 40 years and we have done many things. We're here for the long term and we will decide next year regarding our next factory." Otellini visits Israel in order to launch the company's $5 million investment in Israeli high schools over the next four years, in partnership with the Ministry of Education. The project's aim is to double the number of high school students completing their science and technology matriculation certificate (Globes, November 2)
In contrast, it is significant to note that today, as a coercive preservation policy is imposed in Gettysburg, the community has seen the near destruction of its once vital downtown where private businesses are being forced out. Many parts of downtown now are void of significant businesses like clothing shops or hardware stores. Most businesses in the downtown area today are restaurants and tee shirt shops designed for the tourist industry. That's not the way for a town to build a future.
"The risk of a deeper than currently expected euro area recession remains significant. The risk of further financial market turbulence in the euro area also remains elevated, given the need for fiscal consolidation measures in an environment of weak economic growth, which raises implementation risks. Furthermore, political and financial uncertainty in Greece and potential funding stress in Spain and Italy have increased the risk of severe economic and financial dislocations in the euro area...."
Marx believed that the problem with the socialism of his day was that it did not deal with economic issues. He proposed that his new (communist) economic system, which called for redistribution of wealth was more equitable. Redistribution of wealth, where have we heard that term lately? Paradoxically, as President Obama seeks to eschew a system that has allowed for the strongest economy and the highest standard of living the world has ever known, the Chinese are wholeheartedly embracing it. Rather than view the Chinese success as reaffirmation of capitalism, Obama wants to buy into the defunct European, socialist model.
Republican President Eisenhower won 36% (1952) and 40% (1956) of the Jewish vote on the coattails of his role in crushing Nazi Germany and liberating Jews from the concentration camps. Republican President Reagan received 39% of the Jewish vote in 1980, benefitting from his close ties with the Jewish community and from President Carter's negative record on Israel. Republican President Bush #41 profited from Reagan's pro-Israel reputation, and therefore received 35% of the Jewish vote in 1988. However, it plunged to 11% in 1992 due to the Bush-Baker scornful attitude toward Israel and the Jewish community.
This week's meeting between Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal highlighted their common strategic goal, despite their bitter rivalry in recent years: The PLO's Phased Plan aimed at the establishment of a Palestinian state in all of what was Palestine within the Ottoman/British Mandate borders. Abbas (who is both the chairman of the PLO, established in 1964, and Fatah, established in 1959) told the U.N. General Assembly last year that the highest Palestinian authority was the PLO, and that the "occupation" began in 1948 and not in 1967.
The principle of the Waqf land is permanent, and transcends leaders and policies which are provisional. It applies to any land that was ever under Islamic control. It is an inseparable part of the legacy of Muhammad and Islamic law, especially at this time of the surge by the trans-national Muslim Brotherhood, which views Allah, the Koran, the Prophet Muhammad, jihad and martyrdom as the goal, the law, the leader, the way and the exalted aspiration respectively. Their loyalty to the Waqf land obligates Muslims to "holy wars" and the restoration of sovereignty in the Philippines, Thailand, parts of China, Kashmir, Chechnya, Israel, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Spain, Portugal and elsewhere.
Driven by ideology and greed, Iran, Syria, Hizballah, Hamas and additional Palestinian, Arab and Islamic terror organizations have targeted the US throughout the globe and on the mainland, establishing beachheads in Central and South America and setting sleeper cells in the US and in Canada. The deep roots of the narco-terrorist threat to the US and to the Free World were highlighted by the Congressional Research Service in an April 30, 2010 report, and by Anthony Placido, the intelligence chief of the US Drug Enforcement Administration
"The use of terrorism by [Arab] states or rulers...has been for domestic, regional and international political purposes... Rulers of this provenance and background are hegemonists of power... If Islam and those who claim to represent it and wish to implement its law and rule over man, society and the polity reject all other human forms of law and rule...then clearly there is an unbridgeable gap between them and all other social and political arrangements... The dichotomy between the Islamic and all other systems of earthy government and order is clear, sharp and permanent; it is also hostile."
According to the CIA Factbook, Iran's fertility rate has plummeted to 1.9 babies per woman, Jordan - 3.4, Egypt - 2.97, Syria - 2.94, Saudi Arabia - 2.3, North Africa - 2, etc. Israel's Jewish fertility rate - 3 births per woman and trending upward due to the secular fertility surge - is higher than all Arab countries, other than the Sudan (4.9), Yemen (4.6), Iraq (3.7) and Jordan (3.4). The myth of doubling the Muslim population every 20 years has been shattered. Demographic precedents indicate that there is a slim probability that high fertility rates can be resurrected following a sustained period of significant reduction.
1 Kings 22:47 states that there was no King (but a deputy) in Edom during Jehoshaphat's reign but the Septuagint (3 Kings 16:28 ) reads 'Syria' not Edom. According to Bright, ( 1981, p.274) 'Aram' and 'Edom' look nearly the same in Hebrew. In understanding the situation in Syria at this particular juncture in Israel's history, the fact that 1 Kings 22:47 may be read as a reference to Syria, is important to the understanding of the political situation during the reign of Jehoshaphat (and therefore Ahab) between 880 BCE. and 858 BCE. The more coherent rendering (from the perspective of the King's Calendar Artificial Calendar) would be that it was Syria (Aram) that was ruled by a deputy during Jehoshaphat's reign (or part thereof) and it may be possible to provide indication of this by assessing the military strength of Syria at this time, as presented in the biblical narratives, with particular emphasis on the person of Ben-Hadad.
When was Solomon's Temple built? Even the year of the Destruction of Solomon's Temple is not yet positively known and many claim the Bible Stories are False but the Bible Synchronisms for the Divided Kingdom of Israel are totally accurate when one calculates 490 years backward in history using the Kingscalendar artificial construct.
The answer is simple: 'The Bible must not be trustworthy!' But we must also ask, "Just how trustworthy are opinions and the records upon which secular academics rely?" In both 848 BCE and 845 BCE the coalition of Syro-Phoenician kings successfully withstood Shalmaneser of Assyria and the Assyrian records for both events name Ben-Hadad as leader of the coalition. In 841 BCE however, only one king withstood the Assyrians, and that was King Hazael of Damascus. There is no actual evidence that Hazael of Damascus commenced to reign in 842 / 841 BCE. There is no actual evidence that King Ahab of Israel died circa 853 BCE. One must understand that Ben-Hadad's name may not have been inserted into the record until decades after the battle; and additionally, the name itself is not a personal name that could identify a particular person. The 'name' Ben-Hadad may well have been recorded as the generic name for the specific individual - Hazael
Amos 1:1 refers to visions - "two years before the earthquake" - concerning Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the days of Jeroboam son of Joash, king of Israel. The discovery by Tel Aviv University scientists that a major earthquake (over 7 on the Richter scale) took place on the Golan Heights in the year 749 CE is significant. Josephus in Antiquities Book 9 Chapter 10:4 says that a great earthquake shook the ground and a rent was made in the temple, and the bright rays of the sun shone through it, and fell upon the king's face, insomuch that the leprosy seized upon him immediately.
Since Athaliah then 'destroyed all the royal family of the house of Judah' (2 Chronicles 22:10), it is obvious that Jehu was not completely successful. One wonders if Jehosheba was in fact Athaliah's daughter, and that those royals murdered by Athaliah, were not in fact all those who were not 'her' blood relations.
I recently received an email from someone who wanted my assistance in understanding the Bible's chronological references in relation to the Prophets Elijah and Elisha, and King Ahab of Israel / Samaria and his sons Ahaziah and Jehoram, as well as King Jehoshaphat of Judah. I am feeling very stupid that I can't figure this out. Welcome to the world of understanding Biblical Chronology. Firstly you are not stupid - the fact that you can see the problems means that you have achieved far more than most people can even begin to appreciate." The Bible contains many difficulties. For this period of history alone, there are numerous
From 849 BCE. to 756 BCE, Athaliah to Uzziah & Jehu to Jeroboam II of Israel and Adad-Nirari III Western Campaigns. According to current chronology, Adad-Nirari III commenced a series of western campaigns (toward Syria / Palestine) between 805 BCE. and 803 BCE. although Miller & Hayes, [1986, p.298] place this at 796 BCE. The Saba'a Inscription mention of Adad-Nirari's 5th year (806/05 BCE), appears to indicate that it was in that year that he reached Damascus. We sometimes tend to think that our knowledge of history is based on irrefutable evidence, but as pointed out by Sir Alan Gardiner (1961) in reference to Egyptian History, our knowledge is based in a collection of rags and tatters.

Despite our general disdain for King Ahab, the Encyclopaedia Judaica, provides an interesting summary of Ahab's Reign, that provides a far better picture of him as a king, than does the biblical narrative. King Ahab is best remembered as the husband of Queen Jezebel. It was during his reign that Elijah the prophet was quite busy slaying false prophets and running from Queen Jezebel.
What I suggest, is either that the 7 months of 1 Samuel 6:2 was originally "70 years", and/or that the 20 years listed in 1 Samuel 7:2, is an insertion based on an attempt to chronologise the period from Samuel to David's 7th year, and should read 70 years... Despite the way the story is contextually situated following 2 Samuel Chapter 5 & 6 in relation to battles with the Philistines, these verses can lead one to consider that in fact the Ark was returned after 70 years, and this, probably because David, who used to work for the Five Lords of the Philistines, was now King of Israel.
Reference to King Saul in 1 Samuel 13:1, is corrupt. 1 Samuel 13:1 literally reads: "Saul was a year old when he began to reign; and he reigned two years over Israel". (Miller & Hayes, 1986, p.129) Despite this, the King's Calendar has been able to fairly accurately determine when King Saul commenced his reign. The matter of determining any of these events when using standard solar year calculations are enormous, because not only do Biblical Dates not match up with known history, but are quite obviously 'self-contradictory'.
The simple answer to the question of how long Ehud judged Israel is to be found in the Book of Judges Chapter 3 verse 30. The answer is '80 years'. Unfortunately this figure is conspicuously incorrect, if only because the total figures provided in the book of Judges for the Period of the Judges, is excessive of the time frame provided in 1 Kings 6:1, for both the Period of the Judges and the Monarchy of Israel to the 4th year of King Solomon.
But what of the issue of the Pharaoh who did not drown in the Red Sea? Well, there is a pretty simple answer to that one. Do you remember the story of the Patriarch Joseph? He made it to second in charge of Egypt, with recognition, might and power second only to the Pharaoh himself; and when Pharaoh was busy, it was Joseph who took his place. According to the King's Calendar chronology, The Mosaic Exodus occurred at the time that Amenhotep II became Pharaoh. Upon his accession to the throne, it is recorded that he took off for parts unknown in conquest of the universe. During that time, his grandvizier Rekhmire took his place.
A Jewish woman in Isfahan, Iran, was murdered and cut in half by Muslims who wanted to take over her home. Relatives of the woman said she had lived next to a newly built mosque, and worshipers had demanded that she and her family leave their home so the mosque could be expanded. This news is not reported by the anti-Semitic media! U.S. "Site 911", will cost up to $100 million and can only be built by workers from specific countries with proper security clearances. Palestinians need not apply. When complete the well-guarded compound will have five levels buried underground and six additional outbuildings on the above grounds, within the perimeter. At about 127,000 square feet, the first three floors will house classrooms, an auditorium... - all wedged behind shock resistant doors with radiation protection and massive security. It seems that US government is expecting serious trouble in the nearest future from Arab 'friends' and Israel is the only ally it can trust in the Middle East!
The top leader of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood denounced peace efforts with Israel and urged a holy war to liberate PA controlled territories one day after the country's president, who is a member of the movement, mediated a cease-fire between Israelis and Hamas. "The enemy knows nothing but the language of force," said Mohammed Badei. "Be aware of the game of grand deception with which they depict peace accords." Seven Knesset members who belong to the Kadima party have filed a request to split off from the party and form a Knesset faction affiliated with Tzipi Livni's new political party. Kadima is expected to disappear or come close to it in the coming elections.
A reporter from the Hamas "Al Aqsa" television station rejoiced in the attack and announced that the Arab world awaits further news of "Zionist casualties." "God willing we will soon see black body bags," he said. "I pray to Allah the exalted that we will see black body bags in a short while." Israel has been dropping leaflets on the Gaza Strip, urging residents to leave their homes immediately if they want to stay safe. The murder of Shaima Alawadi, a Muslim woman in California, was trumpeted worldwide as an "anti-Muslim hate crime." Now it turns out that it was an Islamic honour killing
Egyptian security authorities are seriously taking threats by a radical Salafist jihadist leader to demolish the Great Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. "The idols and statues that fill Egypt must be destroyed. Muslims are tasked with applying the teachings of Islam and removing these idols, just like we did in Afghanistan when we smashed the Buddha statues," said Murgan Salem al-Gohary
1923 Having discovered the Golan lacks oil but that the Mosul area in northern Syriais rich in oil, the British cede the Golan to France in exchange for Mosul . At the same time, in violation of the League of Nations resolution, Trans-Jordan and part of the Golan Heights were ceded from the Palestinian mandate as well and Egypt was given control of Sinai. In exchange Britain and France gained control of the Suez Canal. (82% of Jewish land was sacrificed in the process!) In 1934 alone, 30,000 Syrian Arabs from the Hauran moved across the northern frontier into Mandate Palestine, attracted by work in and around the newly built British port and the construction of other infrastructure projects. They even dubbed HaifaUm el-Amal ("the city of work"). The Ottoman Turks' census (1882) recorded only 141,000 Muslims in the Palestinian. The British census in 1922 reported 650,000 Muslims. (Where did they come from? Where did they get 860,00 'refugees'?)
The Muslim Brotherhood's official English-language Twitter account said it was "relieved none of US embassy staff was hurt" and expressed hope that US-Egyptian relations would survive intact. At the same time the Brotherhood's Arabic-language Twitter account and its official website were both praising the protests... and calling for a million man march on Friday". The US Embassy in Cairo picked up the contradiction and tweeted: 'Thanks. By the way, have you checked out your own Arabic feeds? I hope you know we read those too.'
During the 800 years of Muslim ascendancy beginning in the eighth century - in Southern Europe, North Africa and much of Western Asia - Muslims did not riot to protest non-Muslim insults against Islam or its prophet. There is no historic record of random attacks against non-Muslim targets in retaliation for a non-Muslim insulting Prophet Muhammad, though there are many books derogatory toward Islam's prophet that were written in the era of Islam's great empires.
The White House has asked YouTube to review an anti-Muslim film posted to the site that has been blamed for igniting the violent protests this week in the Middle East. A YouTube spokesperson replied that the video "is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube."
According to the Foreign Ministry more than 850,000 Jews from Arab states fled their countries of birth following persecution that ensued after the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948. Many also had their property confiscated. (Arabs left Palestine - all 460,000 of them - following orders from their leaders, to facilitate genocide of the Jews by advancing armies of seven Muslim countries. Their number has 'magicly' doubled after the UN granted them a status of refugees with generous life-lasting benefits!)
The White House this week scrambled to reconnect with Jerusalem after the Obama administration realized Israel was seriously contemplating a military operation against Iran 's nuclear program this fall. Obama asked what it would take to hold Israel back before the Nov. 6 US presidential election. The answer: A solemn, binding US guarantee to strike Iran next spring - plus weapons upgrades.
Aboriginal boxer Damien Hooper was officially warned by Australian team boss for breaching Olympic rules for wearing a T-shirt featuring the Aboriginal flag.. Chapter 5 of the Olympic charter: "No kind of demonstration or political, religious or racial propaganda is permitted in the Olympic areas" BUT This is the third time representatives of the fake non-existent nation, Palestinian, are invited to participate in the Olympic Games, violating the Olympic charter! International 'Humanitarian' Idiots are Silent! Hamas has begun demolishing houses, a move that will leave 120 'Palestinian' families homeless. While the demolitions have been reported in the PA media, they have been virtually ignored internationally. The land is near al-Azhar University in central Gaza City. It's alleged that Hamas officials want the land for personal gain. Turkey 's military, intelligence and administrative bodies approved cross-border attacks against Kurds in Syrian Kurdistan. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan stated that the country would do everything necessary to defend itself against terrorist attacks - whether internal or external. When Israel does it "all hell breaks loose"!
In Leicesterwhere a "gang of Somali Muslim women" assaulted and nearly killed a non-Muslim passer-by but walked free when a "political correct" judge said that as Muslims they were "not used to being drunk." Nine men were convicted of child sexual exploitation in Greater Manchester, after they had "groomed" girls as young as 13. But even there, the report identified the convicts only as "Asian" while revealing their victims were white.
"Our Capital Shall Be Jerusalem , Allah Willing" - Mohammed Morsi, currently elected President of Egypt... Khamenei said the coming has been promised by Allah. "There will come a time when all the oppressive powers of the world will be destroyed and humanity will be enlightened in the era of Imam Mahdi." Iranian police have shut down dozens of restaurants and coffee shops in a renewed crackdown on what the state sees as immoral and un-Islamic behaviour. Muslims are killing and terrorising us, but regardless of having the means to do so Jews do not obliterate them or even remove them from our land.
There are hundreds of thousand refugees pouring into the Southern Sudan. There is a shortage of shelters and food. They are waiting for UN assistance in a swamp. But, there are no senior UN stuff members to coordinate care for them. For over 60 years UNHRC's main focus is welfare of the fake Palestinian refugees, who are living in comfort of (cities) the so called refugee camps.
"The full medical report of President Arafat is an historical document for the Palestinian people," said Hassan Abu Libdeh, the PA cabinet secretary. "We will get the report and the Palestinian Authority will take the necessary decisions including informing the Palestinian people about the full details of the report". Yasser Arafat's nephew, Nasser al-Kidwa, obtained the medical records many weeks' ago. The PA can't blame the "evil widow" for being silent anymore! How much do they pay her for silence?
Hamas leaders in Gaza announced that a young child, Ali Muataz al-Shawaf - 4y.o, had been killed in an Israeli airstrike. Pictures of the child's bloody body were published in Palestinian Authority media outlets. However, IDF officials later revealed the story as a lie. There was no Israeli airstrike in the region in which the child was killed, they said. In Jenin, PA took bodies from a morgue and dug them from their graves to boost numbers of 'civilians' killed! An Indonesian court has sentenced bomb-maker Umar Patek to 20 years' jail for his role in the 2002 Bali bombings, bringing to an end a 10-year probe into the nation's deadliest attack. Patek, was found guilty of six charges, a number of which related to the twin suicide bombings He will be freed in a few years for a 'good behaviour'. Jonathan Pollard has already spent over 26 years in a US prison - just because he is a Jew!
A local Arab man hurled a firebomb at a car as a woman and her young children sat inside in the central Israel city of Ramle. Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said that the peace process with Israel is "clinically dead" just days before PA negotiator Saeb Erakat meets US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. An Israeli truck driver, beaten over the head with an iron bar by three armed Palestinians in a holdup at the Samoa junction south of Hebrona week ago, pulled out a pistol and shot two of them dead. The third robber was injured. Five Palestinian Authority Arabs who entered Israel illegally were found to be among the workers building the fence on Israel's border with Egypt. The five were discovered in a surprise inspection. They had apparently fooled their employers with fake work permits
Often, after I criticised actions or inactions of US presidents (Obama recently) or Muslims/Arab countries and Islamists, I am called "racist" by some of my readers. I believe that people deserve to be respected for who they are! At the same time, people deserve and must be exposed for whatever evil they do or cause by deliberately avoiding to take necessary steps to prevent it. I often criticise Israeli governments and Jewish leadership - does this make me an anti-Semite? ... "This is our plan for this stage - to liberate the West Bank and Gaza, without recognising Israel's right to a single inch of land, and without giving up the Right of Return for a single Palestinian refugee..." "Our plan for this stage is to liberate any inch of Palestinian land, and to establish a state on it. Our ultimate plan is (to have) Palestine in its entirety. I say this loud and clear so that nobody will accuse me of employing political tactics. We will not recognise the Israeli enemy." - Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, Hamas leader, in an interview on Future News TV, MEMRI, June 15, 2010.
Anti-Semitism is expressed in many various hidden ways. One of them is: "All Jews are rich, they can afford it!" For example, my local supermarket, in the current weak economy, is helping customers by discounting ample numbers of items marked "Price down" or "Special" in all sections, except in either of the two "Kosher" sections! An Arab who fathered a baby with a Jewish woman rejected keeping him six months later. He brought the boy to the mother, who had fled, and said, "This boy is Jewish. I don't want him." The bizarre story was revealed by the anti-missionary Yad L'Achim organisation, which also works to rescue Jewish women from Arab homes where they are often held captive.
Obama announces the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama. Would you vote for a white person who did this? Can you imagine Romney calling for all American white people to vote for him just because he's white? The rupture between the Obama administration and the Netanyahu government hardened further when Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak found no time to see Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman, the senior US delegate to the Six Power talks with Iran when she flew in from Baghdad. She was received by national security adviser Yaakov Amidror and Foreign Minister Director Rafi Barak and told them that the Baghdad talks had ended in impasse after Iran flatly refused to stop 20 percent uranium enrichment.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is warning that Israel could be swamped by illegal migrants from Africa. He says if Israel doesn't stop it, then "60,000 infiltrators are liable to become 600,000, and lead to the eradication of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state." More than 50,000 Africans have poured into Israel since 2005, seeking to escape wars and poverty. Israel has withdrawn its pledge to US President Barack Obama not to strike Iran's nuclear sites before the November presidential election after he rejected its minimal demands for nuclear negotiations with Iran . Obama had rejected Israel's toned-down demands for Iran to at least to halt high-grade uranium enrichment, export its stocks of material enriched higher than 3.5 percent grade and shut down production at the Fordo nuclear plant near Qom. For six months, the Obama administration tried to sweeten the bitter pill of this rejection by bumping up security aid.
Justin Martyr 145 CE gloated over the destruction of the Temple as being just punishment for Jewish perfidy and his writings became incorporated into early Christian thought, and were the origins of Christian anti-Semitism.- The Roosevelt Foundation, a private establishment dedicated to the ideals and achievements of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, has presented Al Jazeera with its 2012 Freedom of Speech and Expression Award. The foundation recognised Al Jazeera Media Network for "its longstanding efforts to provide independent, impartial news for an international audience and to offer a voice to a diversity of perspectives from under-reported regions".
For the first time since 2006, the Palestinian Authority's security services on the West Bank have stopped cooperating with the IDF in operations and intelligence-sharing for countering terrorism. Arrests and interrogations of suspects, the most effective way to thwart terrorist plots, have been discontinued and replaced with the old "revolving door" tactic practiced by Yasser Arafat. Clashes have erupted between assailants and supporters of Egypt's Islamist political parties who had gathered near the defence ministry in Cairo, leaving 20 people dead and and hundreds injured. The violence on Wednesday is the latest episode in more than a year of turmoil in Egypt following the toppling of long time ruler Hosni Mubarak and will likely fuel more tensions just three weeks ahead of presidential elections.
It is estimated that In Pakistan as many as 150 women are victims of acid attacks every year, usually perpetrated by vengeful husbands or in-laws. The victims are still being denied justice despite the tougher penalties introduced last year and they say the number of attacks is on the increase. A 16-year-old Moroccan girl, who was forced by her family and judge to marry her rapist committed suicide. Article 475 of the Moroccan penal code allows for the "kidnapper" of a minor to marry his victim to restore the honour of the woman's family and escape prosecution. A government study last year found that about 25% of Moroccan women have been sexually assaulted at least once in their lives. Some 500 to 2,000 British schoolgirls will be genitally mutilated over the summer holidays - leaving brutal physical and emotional scars. Yet there have been no prosecutions against the practice. Female genital mutilation (FGM) is widely common in African countries. Most people are unaware that this brutality is also practiced in Pakistan and other Muslim countries.
More than 80 IDF soldiers and reservists signed a petition of support for a military commander who was filmed in a physical altercation with a Danish anti-Israel activist. The incident happened on Saturday when a group of foreign and Arab cyclists sought to block a main road near Jericho to protest Israel's presence in Judea and Samaria.The altercation came at the end of nearly two hours of heated confrontation between protesters and soldiers. The video of the incident uploaded to the internet was clearly edited in such a way as to cast Eisner in the worst possible light.-- "We say load and clear: The struggle for Palestine is not a political struggle. It is a purely ideological struggle. It is a clear religious struggle between Islam and Zionism. We cannot possible accept (Al Aqsa) remaining under the control of those whom Allah described as a bunch of apes and pigs, the scholars of whom Allah described as asses carrying books, or as a dog that pants when you beat it and pants when you don't." - Khan Yunis, Gaza, a Hamas preacher
France has expelled an Algerian Islamist extremist and a radical Muslim preacher from Mali, and is in the process of deporting a Saudi Muslim prayer leader. Extremist Muslims from abroad are being targeted as part of a French crackdown after deadly March attacks in the southwest city of Toulouse by a 23-year-old claiming links to al-Qaida. The French Interior Ministry said that it has plans to expel others, including a Tunisian militant and a Turkish imam. - Zivotofsky was born at Shaare Zedek Medical Center in West Jerusalem shortly after the law was enacted. His parents, Ari and Naomi, argue that is it unfair to allow about 100,000 Americans born in cities that the US recognizes as being under Israeli sovereignty to have their passports list Israel as their birthplace, but not the 50,000 or so Americans born in Jerusalem.
According to a survey by the PA Central Bureau of Statistics, 58.1 percent of women in Gaza have suffered violence from their husbands. Accurate statistics on honour crimes in PA and Hamas run enclaves are not available. The Gaza-based Al-Mezan Centre for Human Rights said reduced sentences - a maximum of 24 months in jail for severe crimes like murder - had made "honour" crimes "prevalent in the Palestinian society and has resulted in opening the door for undermining the principle of the rule of law."
During a surprise visit to Ankara, Mashaal told Erdogan that, "Israel used Gaza as a field experiment for the Iron Dome and the IDF's weapons." Erdogan expressed anger regarding Israel aggression, and warned Mashaal that Israel was trying to drag Gaza into war. Therefore, Israel used weak excuses (200 rockets) as a pretext to attack Gaza.
On Monday, Cairo claimed a ceasefire it brokered had gone into effect. On Tuesday, the Palestinians fired 13 rockets and mortar shells without an Israeli military response. An Iron Dome anti-missile battery intercepted one of the two incoming Grads before it landed in Beersheba. - The Palestine Liberation Organisation will employ all means, and first and foremost armed struggle, to liberate Palestinian territory and to establish the independent combatant national authority for the people over every part of Palestinian territory that is liberated. This will require further changes being effected in the balance of power in favour of our people and their struggle.
Susan Rice, US Ambassador to the UN says: "We remain determined not to rest until a democratic and peaceful state (sic) of Israel lives side-by-side with a viable and secure Palestinian state." All their maps show their "Palestine" with the Terror flag over, on top of, eliminating the Jewish State of Israel. Their letterheads, army uniforms, big pictures on the wall in front of where they host their guests for television photo ops... all show their map wiping Israel away. Plain-speaking Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman warned that if the United States is too weak to be able to intervene to stop Syrian President Bashar Assad's "systematic murder of innocent civilians," it can't be counted on to come to Israel's aid. "If the international community is incapable of stopping the massacres in Syria, what is the value of its promises to protect the security of Israel?"
Ever since the signing of the Oslo Accords in September 1993, we have warned against the establishment of a Palestinian entity alongside Israel... Repeatedly, we have pleaded with the public to recognise the dangers inherent in dividing the land of Israel and placing the heart of the country within our foes' artillery range. Time after time, we have insisted that an independent Palestine would be swept up by the rising tide of Islamic fundamentalism and become an outpost for Iranian-style extremism. Earlier this month, Abbas delivered decisive and irrefutable corroboration of everything the Right has been saying for nearly 20 years.
We really shouldn't be surprised that Irans supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei only recently released a new doctrine explaining why it would be "legally and morally justified" to commit genocide and wipe Israel off the map. " Israel is a cancerous tumour in the Middle East," Khameini wrote for the ultraconservative Farsi-language Alef news site. " Israel is a satanic media outlet with bombers. Every Muslim is required to arm themselves against Israel." -- It is quite disturbing to watch support so-called "Arab Spring" receives from the Western democracies. In reality, it is just a replacement of dictatorial regimes by Islamic ones. Surprisingly, the United States and Europe , even usually politically passive France, are eager supporters and active facilitators of this change! They did not call for regime change when Russia waged war in Chechnya or China suppressed independence movement of Tibet!
One fine day, Saudi Arabia, which has never agreed to peace relations with Israel, may be moved to attack the Jewish state from an air base very close to Israel's shores. That proximity and the size and quality of its air force will allow dozens of warplanes to penetrate Israel's air defences and drop bombs on southern and central Israel. Israel is conscious that the Gulf region is on tenterhooks over its security and the Saudis are deep in military preparations to beat back potentially aggressive Iranian moves in the wake of the oil embargo approved by the US and the European Union against Tehran's nuclear program.
Four Jewish pilgrims from the United States were arrested before dawn on Friday in Shechem as they sought to pray at Joseph's Tomb. The Bratslav Hassidic group were confronted at gunpoint by Palestinian Authority police and taken into custody before reaching the grave site. "It is outrageous that this discrimination and harassment is going on while the PA is supported through funding by the American and EU governments. Joseph's tomb must be reopened for full free access for all Jewish people regardless of their citizenship," said David Ha'ivri of the Shomron Liaison Office.
The commander of the Hevron Region of the Israel Police, Col. Yitzchak Rachamim said during the candle lighting ceremony at the Cave of Patriarchs: "Our primary goal is that not only Jews from Diaspora will visit the Cave of Patriarchs, but also the residents of Israel will all flock in multitudes to this holy site. We identify fully with the importance of the place - this is the foundation of the state of Israel. The policemen and officers of the Hevron Region serve in this dear and holy place out of a sense of mission, challenge and destiny."
Iranian Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi visited Riyadh on Monday, Dec. 12 with a large delegation and a proposition for Crown Prince Nayef: For an anti-US and anti-Zionist pact on regional issues, Tehran would act to bring the Syrian opposition into government and open its nuclear program to Saudi participation. Moslehi boasted that after seizing top US secret drone technology by a successful cyber attack, Iran was unquestionably the top regional power.
The legacy of Chanukah - faith, patriotism, defiance of extreme odds and tenacity in the battle of liberty against tyranny - has underlined the American spirit since the early Pilgrims, enhancing the unique foundation of the US-Israel covenant: shared values. "In God We Trust" was inspired, also, by the Maccabees' battle cry, which adopted Moses' battle cry against the builders of the Golden Calf. A literal translation of the battle cry is "Whoever trusts God; join me!" The Maccabees' sacrifice and political-incorrectness, also, inspired Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death."
The American and the European foreign policy establishments are playing the Palestinian fiddle. Their track record features the support of Khomeini and the betrayal of the Shah, the embrace of Saddam as a constructive force, the crowning of Arafat as a messenger of peace, the hailing of Bashar Assad as a moderate leader, the legitimization of Qadaffi as a reformed ruler and the idolizing of Mubarak as an Egyptian Rock of Gibraltar. They are convinced that the Palestinian issue is a root cause of Middle East turbulence and the crown jewel of Arab policy-making.
Israel is the fourth largest defense exporter in the world; Israel's export is increasingly based on unique niches in the vial areas of health, medical devices, pharmaceutics, biomed, telecommunications, energy alternatives, water, agriculture and the Internet
Israeli officials are thinking about reoccupying the Sinai Peninsula because of the growing prospect of infiltration by al-Qaida and other militants such as Hamas, the inability of the Egyptian military to guarantee security and the prospect of a cut-off of vital natural gas supplies flowing through a repeatedly sabotaged pipeline. "The Sinai is already known as a lawless land," according to a senior Israeli official. "There is real concern that if the Egyptians don't get the Sinai back under their control, it could develop into a major threat to Israel."
Big Brother and Security in the USA: Chief among the schemes to "get tough" with business is the universal enforcement of something called the E-Verify System. It is the brainchild of the Department of Homeland Security and is an electronic employment verification (EEV) program. Essentially, E-Verify uses the Social Security databases to check potential employee Social Security Numbers to determine if the job candidate is a US citizen. Employers are to simply enter in the applicants Social Security Number to verify they are an American citizen (of legal status) and therefore eligible for employment. The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 made it illegal for employers to "knowingly" employ unauthorized workers, and E-Verify (then known as "Basic Pilot") grew out of the requirement for work-eligibility verification. Since its inception the program has been voluntary for all businesses. However, if Smith's bill passes, voluntary will change to mandatory.
Obama's power constraints are derivatives of the Federalist system, which is based on limited government with a complete separation of powers and checks and balances between Congress and the White House...Obama lacks the domestic backing to effectively pressure Israel, which has recently gained in bi-partisan support on Capitol Hill and among constituents, while Obama lost the "Bin Laden Bounce" and is struggling with a less-than-50% approval rating.
Today NGOs have power nearly equal to member nations when it comes to writing U.N. policy. There are numerous classifications of NGO's. The two most common are "Operational" and "Advocacy." Americans must begin to understand that the debates over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air and much more to do with the establishment of power. NGOs are gaining it, locally elected officials are losing it, as the structure of American government changes to accommodate the private agendas of NGOs.
Barack Obama is not a leader. Before becoming president, he had never been in charge of anything. He had never managed a business, never met a payroll, never balanced a budget. As a United States senator for all of 141 days, he had never chaired either a committee or a subcommittee, for obvious reason: He hadn't been there long enough to do either. His background before entering politics was that of an academic and a "community organizer."
The indefatigable spirit of Rabbi Akiva - the spiritual force behind the revolt - infused people with the power of faith. Just as Rabbi Akiva continued his national-educational work after the Great Revolt in which he lost his students, and with the little that remained, he established a new spiritual center, and these students, as well, he enlisted in the rebellion of Bar Kokhba
Israel's Economic Prosperity. Israel's unemployment has declined to 6% in February, 2011. The Houston-based ATP Oil & Gas, which specializes in deep off-shore drilling, received a license to drill in Israel (Globes, April 15). The Seattle-based Getty Images acquired Israel's PicScout for $20MN ( Globes, April 28 )
Alert political activists may have noticed a major change in the way government and public policy has been run for the past couple of decades. That change is the key to how we are being outmaneuvered - right before our eyes. There are many names for the tactic: Group Manipulation; Consensus; Facilitation. Psychologically- Controlled Environments; Scientific Coercion. It all means the same thing; professional manipulators are being employed to control pubic meetings through a pre- determined outcome, and they are trained to lead you straight to that result and even make you think it was your idea.
Focusing on passports, however, was about to create an international problem for the US government that would force it to accelerate and expand its surveillance plans, leading to a global surveillance system beyond what most in Congress intended.
We are dropping bombs and missiles on Libya, but are not at war - we are engaged in a "kinetic military action". Hillary RODHAM Clinton has informed us that responsibility has been handed over to NATO. We elected a man about whom we knew next to nothing. And leaders are supposed to lead! He waffled. He dithered. He played golf. He took vacations. He took "official" trips. His foreign policy at the outset was one of apology and debasement. Is anyone beginning to suspect that we have followed a talking white rabbit down a mysterious hole that leads to mad hatters and Cheshire cats ruled by a deck of cards? George W. Bush will somehow be blamed for of all, as the "mainstream" news media will spare no effort to eventually discover.
Obama first declared (Libyan dictator Muammar) Khadafi must go, then flip-flopped on that objective, and now refuses to call that which fits every definition of war a war, calling it instead a "kinetic military action." In each situation, where nearly every previous president would have stepped forward and taken decisive action, Obama has instead sat on his hands, dithered and procrastinated, and, when he finally decided to act, offered up too little too late.
"Was the shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords a terrorist attack? I mean, you have to look at the evidence and look at the motivation, and then you make a judgment." The fact is, more than three dozen terrorist plots against the U.S. have been foiled since 9/11. There's Richard Reid, the would-be "shoe bomber." There are the six U.S. citizens of Yemeni descent arrested in 2002 for conspiring with terrorists (the "Lackawanna Six"). There are the seven men apprehended in Miami and Atlanta in 2006 for plotting to blow up Chicago's Sears Tower. Just last year, Faisal Shahzad was arrested for trying to detonate explosives in an SUV parked in Times Square, and Mohamed Osman Mohamud was arrested for trying to blow up a car bomb at a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in Portland, Ore. The list goes on.
According to Israel's Central Bureau of Statistics, Israeli-born Jewish fertility rate was over 3 births in 2009: "According to the UN Population Division, the overall Middle East fertility rate peaked during the 1950s (6.33 births per woman) and declined gradually to 2.95 births in 2010." In 2010, the Jewish fertility rate is 63% higher than Lebanon's
One incredible Indian saying in one speech everything the Green movement advocates. There's just one problem. Chief Seattle never said a word of this. All of it was written by a movie screenwriter named Ted Perry in 1971, about one hundred years after the chief died. The Green movement is based on wrong policy, perpetrated by deceit and promoted by myth.
Animal Welfare is the humane caring for animals. Animal Rights is the use of animals to attack human existence. How is that? A/Rists believe that humans should not eat meat, wear leather, hunt or fish, use any medical research (past, present or future) involving animals or even have pets.
America: Are we a nation where government can order people to buy health coverage? Liberals can try all they want to place us on a "road to serfdom". conservatives are winning where it matters most .. We are winning the war of ideas. And liberals are taking notice. (Read More)
The only one of the quartet that shines in this department is "Friends With Benefits." The repartee is sizzling. Before you can digest one clever zinger, there's another on the way, and another on top of that. I found myself rewinding just to absorb the nuances I'd missed. Kudos to the scriptwriters and the director for getting out of the way of the actors.
Why must Israel suffer attacks from her enemies and be disallowed by anti-Semitic international hypocrites to retaliate and put an end to this hideous reality? 'Remember, there was no Palestine as a state,' Mr Gingrich said. ''It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we've had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs and were historically part of the Arab community. And they had a chance to go many places.''
In the wake of the terrible Stephen Lawrence murder, the Macpherson Report defined a racial incident very clearly: "A racist incident is any incident which is perceived to be racist by the victim or any other person." Is it not a little odd that such a straightforward statement, eagerly embraced by the British police, is open to question only when the victim is white? Ms Page clearly believes this was a racial incident, so why don't the police or the judiciary?
On September 28th the world was supposed to celebrate, but conveniently forgot the anniversary of the Israeli-Palestinian Interim Agreement, widely known as the Oslo Accords. Three political stooges Yasser Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Perez received the Nobel Peace prize for signing this worthless piece of paper, which was based on fake promises made by Yasser Arafat in a letter to the Prime Minister of Israel, Rabin on 9 September, 1993. In this letter Yasser Arafat promised: "The PLO considers that the signing of the Declaration of Principles constitutes an historic event, inaugurating a new epoch of peaceful coexistence, free from violence and all other acts which endanger peace and stability.
Intelligence reports indicate several Arab countries in the Middle East are lobbying the US to strike Iran this year. According to the report, Saudi Arabia wants the Obama administration to attack Iran's nuclear facilities before the final withdrawal of US troops from Iraq. Saudi Arabia and its Gulf Arab allies have been locked in a strategic battle with Iran for hegemony over the Persian Gulf - and have accused Tehran of seeking to destabilise the region through its 'Shiite Diaspora.'
If al-Aqsa mosques is truly the third holy place of Islam, why is there no mass Muslim international pilgrimage of Muslims even from the 'moderate' Muslim countries? Even moderate Muslims from the US, Europe, Australia or Russia do not visit the so-called 3rd holy place of Islam, Al Aqsa mosque in Jerusalem. They all know, but are silent about its fake politically motivated status. International anti-Semitic hypocrites do not care that the mosque is built on and has been desecrating the Jewish Temple, the holiest Jewish site.
Prince Khaled bin Talal, a brother of a Saudi billionaire prince, told a private Saudi television station he is raising to $1million a cleric's paltry $100,000 offer to kidnap and IDF soldier. "Dr. Awad al-Qarni said he was offering $100,000 to only take a prisoner. I tell Dr. Awad al-Qarni, 'I will be in solidarity with you and pay the remaining $900,000 to take an Israeli soldier prisoner so that other prisoners can be freed.'"
Just recently, the Pope, leader of 1.1 billion Catholics, deliberately omitted Israel from the list of countries suffering from Islamic terror in his speech. Following his example, an Anglican archbishop did not mention two Jews as victims of London bombings. Some Church leaders are still advocating divestment from Israel, but not from Muslim countries linked to Islamic terrorism! - Rocket Attacks began last Wednesday, when a Grad Katyusha rocket was fired at Ashdod - Israel is supposed to release another 550 terrorists in the coming weeks, but some MKs have begun calling for that part of the Shalit deal to be cancelled if Hamas continues to allow rocket attacks on Israel.
At least 200 potential terrorists are actively planning suicide attacks while living freely in Britain, British intelligence chiefs have warned ministers. The figures are contained within a secret government report on the "enduring terrorist threat" facing Britain from al-Qaeda and affiliated organizations.: "Egypt is not going toward democracy but toward Islamisation. It is the same in Turkey and in Gaza. It is just like what happened in Iran in 1979." - Eli Shaked, a former Israeli ambassador to Cairo
"As the months of Arab Spring have turned autumnal, Israel has increasingly become a target of public outrage, the New York Times" Ethan Bronner wrote this weekend from Jerusalem. "Some here say Israel is again being made a scapegoat, this time for unfulfilled revolutionary promises. But there is another interpretation, and it is the predominant one abroad - Muslims, Arabs and indeed many around the globe believe Israel is unjustly occupying Palestinian territories, and they are furious at Israel for it." (The third interpretation, which is supported by the history of the conflict, is that Arabs never were interested in peace with Jews. Since 1920s Arabs have been systematically and quite successfully undermining and destroying the inspiration for Jewish homeland - Eretz-Israel!)
When was the last time the United Nations Security Council met to condemn an Arab government for its mistreatment of Palestinians? Since Al Jazeera became a major wholesale supplier of the international news nobody has questioned Arab control of the world news supply and subliminal messages of news contents. Al Jazeera Journalist and Former Afghanistan bureau chief Samer Allawi admits he traveled to Syria to help an Hamas terror group. Undercover Israeli police officers arrested a Hamas lawmaker, Ahmed Abu Atoun, who had been hiding in the Red Cross' office in east Jerusalem for the past year.
CNN journalists described mob that attacked them during the riot at the Israeli embassy as "animals." One other journalist was called a spy and was almost raped. The worldwide news site reported a scene that brought back ugly memories of the gang rape of CBS reporter Lara Logan earlier this year during the Arab spring uprising against the Mubarak regime.

The Arab terms "hudna" and "tahadiya", which are used by Hamas to describe the ceasefire, do not at all mean that the firing of rockets and missiles stops completely. According to Islamic rules, these terms allow the individual who uses them to keep fighting or to stop the fighting as he wishes. "They can attack and stop attacking whenever they want," David Bedein, said. "There is no connection between hudna and tahadiya and a ceasefire. You have to understand the terms." - Despite the continued rocket and missile attacks from the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip into Israeli territory, Israel transferred $13.5 million into the Gaza Strip. Money was delivered to UNRWA (the United Nations Relief and Works Agency) - the perpetual refugee facilitator!
Reports of corruption and the plundering of PA coffers under Mahmoud Abbas have pervaded the Israeli media for years. Abbas himself had withdrawn millions from PA accounts in Amman and Cairo. Auditors discovered that Arafat was guilty of skimming $2 million a month from the gasoline trade in the territories. At the time of his death some $1billion in funds donated to the PA went missing from his accounts. U.S. Congress received documentation on the PA government paying the monthly salaries of the imprisoned Arab terrorists. The total amount spent is a whopping $5 million-plus. Through the PA budget, the U.S. is paying the salaries of terrorist murderers.
July 28, 2006, Naveed Afzal Haq grabbed a 14-year-old girl and thrust a gun in her back. He used her to gain entry to the Federation, and then rampaged through the building, shooting six women - Layla Bush, Christina Rexroad, Cheryl Stumbo, Dayna Klein (who was five months pregnant), Carol Goldman, and, fatally, Pamela Waechter. Tammy Kaiser jumped from a second-story window to escape, and was hospitalized with injuries. What was Haq's motive? Well, here's an interesting clue: As he stormed through the halls, shooting and killing, he shouted, "I'm a Muslim-American! I'm angry at Israel!" Quite a dramatic story, no? And yet it's not a story anybody wants to tell. Grab the average leftist on the street - or, certainly, on campus - and ask him about Rachel Corrie, the anti-Israel activist accidentally run over by an IDF tank. I bet he knows Corrie's story by heart; after all, our cultural grandees never stop pushing it as a "teaching moment" about Israeli brutality.
Jordan' s King Abdullah II recently turned down a request from Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to hold a secret meeting in Akaba. The sources said that the king is angry with Netanyahu over the position of his government on the negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, and over statements by people close to Netanyahu that "Jordan is Palestine."
Palestinians are the top per-capita aid recipients in the history of the planet. It's not just how much, but how long Palestinians have received international welfare that breaks all records. For 63 years, the US, European nations and the UN have been nonstop donors. While all refugees in the world receive assistance for a few years from the United Nations Refugee Agency, UNHCR, Palestinians have their own, seemingly eternal source of UN welfare under the auspices of the United Nations Relief United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Per capita Foreign Assistance 2009: Palestinian Authority $725.00 - Afghanistan $219.00 - Sudan $56.00 - Bangladesh $8.00 / Percentage of the population who live below the poverty line: West Bank (under PA control) 16% - Washington, D.C. 18.9%. - Greece 20%. - Israel 24%.
The IDF oversees the shipment of 6,000 tons of food, fuel, merchandise and building material to Gaza every day as flotilla leaders allege a 'blockade' exists. The daily deliveries by Israel were never turned into "media frenzy," according to IDF spokesmen. "In contrast, previous convoys, instigating violent provocations with Israeli or Egyptian forces, rarely delivered substantial amounts of goods into Gaza".
Israel has authorised construction of 1,200 new homes in the Gaza Strip, in what would be one of the largest housing projects in the troubled seaside territory in years. 17 Jews whose bodies were found at the bottom of a medieval well in England were likely victims of persecution. The skeletons date back to the 12th or 13th centuries. Aware of Arabs' past aggression, Resolution 181, in paragraph C, calls on the Security Council to: "Determine as a threat to the peace, breach of the peace or act of aggression, in accordance with Article 39 of the Charter, any attempt to alter by force the settlement envisaged by this resolution."
Article (19) Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated - : - Suddenly Targeting Killing of Terrorists is Good! Senior al-Qaeda operative, Ilyas Kashmiri, regarded as one of the most dangerous militants in the world, was killed by a United States drone aircraft missile strike in Pakistan. The World conveniently forgot the criticism and diplomatic assault Israel had suffered for killing Palestinian terrorists.
The video shows that in PA President Mahmoud Abbas' speech in Gaza on Nakba Day, delivered in his name by his advisor and representative, he denied that Jews have a history in the Land of Israel and claimed a fictitious 9000 year-old Palestinian history dating back to 7000 BCE. This history, said Abbas, made Palestinians "the owners of history."
Now that Fatah and Hamas are 'united' and openly share political inspiration, destruction of Israel and terror responsibilities, Israel must make a vital decision. It is either achieving peace by getting rid of her 'peace partner' and creating a sovereign Jewish state or continuing the pretence of the 'peace process' and suffering from Arab terror and international humiliation!
If you are against the idea of reunification of all Jewish land, please be consistent and reject legitimacy of most Muslim countries in the Middle East , as they are beneficiaries of a Mandate system, which was created by the League of Nations in 1922 after WWII. Only Jews were robbed of their ancestral land in the process and were forced to accept, after the shock of the Holocaust, less than 18% of land that was allocated for Eretz-Israel!
2011 Palestinian Statehood: Hamas-Fatah peace / Gaza West Bank The Hamas-Fatah agreement announced on Wednesday is a fatal mistake that will allow terrorists to rule Judea and Samaria and ruin the chances for the establishment of the PA as a country (President Shimon Peres) - A day after announcement of a Fatah-Hamas rapprochement in Cairo, PA president Mahmoud Abbas said he would keep pursuing peace talks with Israel. Almost concurrently, top Hamas official Mahmoud al-Zahar said Hamas would stick to its stance of neither recognizing nor negotiating with Israel.
President Obama's first phone call from the Oval Office after his inauguration was to Mahmoud Abbas; his first formal TV interview as President was with al-Arabiya; one of his top advisers is Samantha Power, an inveterate Israel-hater who recently said that the U.S. should be prepared to send in our military to subjugate the Jewish state and facilitate its takeover by the Arabs. Obama bowed to the Saudi king; he treated Prime Minister Netanyahu like something the cat dragged in, and after his inauguration his first formal TV appearance was with Mahmoud Abbas.
Israeli police have arrested Hakim Mazen Niad Awad, 17, and Amjad Mahmoud Fawzi, 18, in the West Bank village of Awarta on suspicion of murdering five members of the Fogel family in neighboring Itamar on March 11. They confessed to their ambition to kill Jews and die as martyrs. They expressed no remorse. Six more Palestinians arrested as accomplices in the crime. Jews comprise a mere 0.23% (13 million) of the world's population (6 billion). We never asked for admiration, simple recognition is long ever due!
Jews have nothing to apologise for. We have the right to live in peace on Jewish land in our own country. We lived in Gallut (exile, slave mentality) for too long. It is time to say - "NO more"! I am ashamed and feel sorry for those Jews who have no self-respect and are helping enemies to destroy Israel. Why do they hate themselves so much? I do respect non-Jewish people who do not know and do not care about the Arab-Israel conflict. They are honest hard working people who have their own problems and interests
A British national, killed after an explosion ripped through a bus stop in Jerusalem, was an evangelical Christian who was studying Hebrew. Mary Jean Gardner, 59, Bible translator, originally from Orkney in Scotland, was killed by the blast and about 50 people were injured in the attack, which was blamed on Palestinian terrorists. Hamas stated on Wednesday that it wants to "restore calm" and indicated it is backing off from escalation in attacks it initiated, as Israel makes it clear it will not tolerate terror.
It's time to tell the truth that there never were a Palestinian people and there never will be a Palestinian state. No one is doing the Arabs any favors by cruelly fueling false hopes that will only lead to frustration and greater disillusionment. The eternal people of Israel will continue to thrive in the whole of Eretz Yisroel and not even Jewish politicians, acting foolishly and humiliating themselves in public, could stop or slow down the fast moving train of Jewish destiny that's hurtling towards the dawn of our Redemption. If our ancestors were here today, would we be able to look them in the eye? What will we tell our children and grandchildren when they ask us why we gave away their inheritance and trust, without their consent? Will they ever forgive us? What will we tell them - that we had no choice? History will not be so kind or forgiving... At its founding, however, Israel declared itself to be a Jewish liberal democracy. The inherent contradiction in its Declaration of Independence is tragically playing itself out in today's headlines. Israel's crack in its foundation has now become fully exposed. Israel has to decide once and for all whether it is a Jewish land, as the name Israel after the people of Israel, clearly indicates, or whether it is just another liberal democracy...
The only news that is fed to the public by the international media is that of a fictitious Arab nation - Palestine. The same facilitators of the Holocaust have been generating their justifications for the blood-thirsty terror unleashed on Jews during the last 60 years by Arabs. The intentions of the Arab leadership and the Islamic terrorist infrastructure to destroy Israel and kill Jews are completely ignored. The rights of Jewish people to live in peace on the Jewish land are deemed by them to be non-existent!
An historic class action suit has been filed against former President Jimmy Carter and the Simon & Schuster publishing company alleging that Carter's book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, contained numerous false and knowingly misleading statements intended to promote the author's agenda of anti-Israel propaganda and to deceive the reading public instead of presenting accurate information as advertised.
Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all!" - Ayatollah Khomeini. : According to all reputable anti-terrorist experts, negotiation with terrorists is a bad practice. It gives them legitimacy and encourages raising of the level of terror. Basque, Tibetans and Kurds have legitimate national claims. All of them have historical connections with their land, as well as the language, cultural and national heritage. In spite of this, neither Spain, France, China, five Central Asian countries, nor the United Nations have made any attempt to address their grievances. Strong legal and military measures are used to discourage any independence tendencies. It is time to return to basics, scrutinize the facts of history and wake up from this mesmerizing nightmare!
Jihad is the Way explicitly endorses the reinstatement of a worldwide Islamic regime. "It should be known that jihad and preparation towards jihad are not only for the purpose of fending off assaults and attacks of Allah's enemies from Muslims, but are also for the purpose of realizing the great task of establishing an Islamic state and strengthening the religion and spreading it around the world." - 57 percent of Germans would oppose a Palestinian State, according to a new poll released by the Greenberg Quinlan Rosner institution for The Israel Project. - Regardless of its peace treaties with Jordan and Egypt, what happens if Hezbollah, with its tens of thousands of rockets in Lebanon, and Hamas, with its tens of thousands of rockets in Gaza, were to launch all-out simultaneous attacks against the Jewish state?
It's clear that the tidal wave of popular anger against the Arab world's 'moderate' regimes would be washing over those regimes regardless of an Israeli-Palestinian peace agreement. Why? Because Middle East instability is not about us - it is about them. It is about Arab unemployment, Arab poverty and Arab despair of a better future... Deputy leader Rashad Al-Bayumi of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood declared, on Thursday, his movement's intention to cancel Egypt's 1979 peace treaty with Israel. He added that cancellation of the treaty would be one of the demands made of a temporary government after the ousting of President Hosni Mubarak.
Although terrorism was used by both IRA and PLO, at least the Irish people have the legitimate claim for ending occupation of Northern Ireland by the United Kingdom. So-called Palestinians, who were invented in the 1960s in order to undermine legitimacy of the Jewish states, have none!
Pastor Terry Jones who caused global uproar by his fake threat to burn the Quran, has been barred from visiting Britain.
