SHARON: Celebrations underway in Gaza

'Rocket barrage if Sharon dies'
1 terror leader threatening life of replacement prime minister

JERUSALEM – Palestinian groups in the Gaza Strip are watching the news regarding Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's deteriorating health carefully and will celebrate with Qassam rocket firings at Jewish towns if Sharon dies, terror leaders told WorldNetDaily.

One militant leader threatened the life of Sharon's temporary replacement, Deputy Minister Ehud Olmert, who was installed as prime minister just hours ago.

Celebrations reportedly are underway in the Gaza Strip, with families distributing sweets and gunmen shooting into the air.

"I personally am waiting to celebrate. I have my fingers crossed," Abu Abir said

These animals are peace partners? I am sick sick sick of this bullshit. The Jew is held up to an impossible standard of morality and behavior, exceeds it and is condemned without fail.

The Jew is the world's whipping boy and I for one have had enough. STFU!

Jihad based on "Peace and Security in Exchange for Land"

                     No more "Land for Peace"

Prefacing the above: I, for one, never saw fit to tell Israel what it should or should not do.

I do not live there, I am not on the front lines of terror everyday. When Edgar Bronfman Sr. came out most vocally against the security barrier I wanted to go the Four Seasons where he dines and spit in his face. Where did he get off telling these people what they should or should not do to save their own lives. I had, for years, admired Bronfman's work on behalf of Israel but on this he had lost me. He was a fool.

I hated Oslo. Never saw the logic in it. Rewarding murder. Arafat saying one thing in English toRabin_arafat_oslo  the West and in the same moment congratulatory moment, encouraging war and Jew killing in arabic to his own people.

On the other hand, I supported Sharon on Gaza. Not for land for peace, but land for war. It seemed to me that after exhaustive efforts to secure peace with Israel's hostile neighbors, it was time Israel set defensible borders, lock down the country and prepare for war.  Shut down the borders and defend its people. Gaza was impossible to defend in terms of manpower and money. Strategically it was a nightmare. Even so, the disengagement was heartbreaking - and the toll it took on the whole of the country can not be underestimated.

But now I am stepping out of my passive but supportive role of Israel and saying NO MORE LAND. It is not so much that it accomplishes nothing except to embolden the terrorists and wannabe islamokazes and render Israel perceptively weaker.............but more significantly, the "peace of jihad is founded on the principle "peace and security for land": peace and security are conceded by the jihad armies if the infidels cede their territory and submit to the rules of dhimmitude. [dhimmitude: the condition of "subjection with protection" of non-Muslims in their own countries, obtained by the cessation of their land to the Muslim ruler. Subjection because the infidels submit to Islamic law or face forced conversions, slavery or death. Dhimmitude is the direct outcome of jihad.1

Warning Shots - Martin Peretz (New Republic)

  • The withdrawal from Gaza by Israel was supposed to be a test. That the hudna (ceasefire) would hold. It didn't. What about security undertakings with regard to Gaza's border with Egypt? Again a failure. Is there elemental public order on the streets? Chaos rules in Gaza, utter mayhem.
  • The fact is that almost no one in Israel any longer believes in a negotiated peace with the Palestinians. Not because sensible and humane Israelis can't imagine a fair divide of the land between the river and the sea. But because Gaza has truly shown them that there are - let's be perfectly frank - no Palestinians with whom to treat. Not a single security assurance from the Palestinians has ever held. There is no dispute: This is the record.
  • All this has consequences for the West Bank. Sooner or later, and particularly if there is a withdrawal from the West Bank and the Jordan Valley, rockets and missiles will be as common there as they are in Gaza and Lebanon. Already, al-Qaeda has claimed (and Israeli intelligence has confirmed) that it was responsible for at least one rocket attack on Israel proper.
  • Those who casually promote the notion that Israel should disengage from here, there, nearly everywhere close to the 1949 lines are proposing that the Jewish state commit suicide. Virtually the entire country, including Ben-Gurion Airport, would be vulnerable to even simple weaponry.

Homicide Bomber Planned Attack at Children's Hannukah Party -

Suicide Bomber Planned Attack at Children's Hannukah Party -

Chanukah_1 The suicide bomber who killed an Israel Defense Forces officer and two Palestinians at an army checkpoint near Tulkarm Thursday was apparently planning to blow himself up at one of the many children's events taking place in Tel Aviv during this week's Hannukah holiday, army sources said. Had the bomber not been stopped at the checkpoint, the attack would have been far more deadly, said the sources. The slain officer was Lt. Ori Binamo, 21, of Nesher. Of the slain Palestinians, one was the taxi driver and the other might have been the bomber's guide. The IDF believes that the Islamic Jihad network in the northern West Bank was responsible. That network has been responsible for the deaths of 26 Israelis since the start of the year, including all of the suicide bombings inside Israel.
    IDF sappers said the suicide belt containing more than 10 kilograms of explosives was packed with nails and iron scraps to make it more deadly. Because the blast occurred in an open area, its effect was mitigated, but had it gone off in an enclosed hall packed with parents and children, as was apparently intended, the effect would have been devastating. Col. Aharon Haliba, commander of the Ephraim Brigade, said, "With all my sorrow over Ori, I have to tell the truth: He and his soldiers, with their bodies, prevented [a far more serious] attack. That is their job; that is our job." Due to warnings of other attacks, the high alert along the seam between the West Bank and Israel will remain in force.

It'so so depraved, it leaves me speechless...............and what's with the term "suicide" bombing?
IT'S HOMICIDE BOMBING

Group Claims Rocket Strike on Israel

AP - Al-Qaida in Iraq said Thursday that it fired a barrage of rockets from Lebanon into northern Israel this week, in a rare claim by the group of a direct attack against the Jewish state. Full Story

First off, check out the AP headline.......the use of "group" instead of al-Qaida, wild, right? WTF are they protecting?

Al Qaida in Iraq huh! Al Qaida striking Israel huh!Al_qaida

Maj. Gen. Aharon Zeevi-Farkash, the head of Israeli army intelligence, said Thursday in an interview with Israel's Channel 10 TV, "Today al-Qaida is turning its focus to the heart of the Levant —     Syria, Egypt, Jordan, the     Palestinian Authority, the countries around us, and to Israel."

This is a turning point. Iran's declarations of Jewish genocide has the let the proverbial cat out of the bag. It is open season. For all those Jew haters that have long insisted that our policies in the Middle East are the cause for the barbarism and hate ("why do they hate us?") bear in mind that al qaida stuck America (the Big Satan) first. Osama was unhappy with our presence in Saudi Arabia remember? So are we to believe Israel is suffering because of her alliance with the US? The big Satan's little Satan? Of course not.  Radical Islamonazism's objective is word domination. Caliphate anyone?

65% of Palestinians Support Al-Qaeda Attacks in U.S.

Poll: 65% of Palestinians Support Al-Qaeda Attacks in U.S. and Europe

According to a survey of Palestinian opinion financed by Norway's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 65% support al-Qaeda actions in the U.S. and Europe, 32% support al-Qaeda actions in Iraq, and 13% support al-Qaeda actions in Jordan.

    Some 69% of Palestinians see violent action as legitimate and half believe that suicide attacks are necessary to force Israel to make political concessions. However, 57% believe the intifada should stop and 74% think that attacks from Gaza should cease. 83% think it is in the Palestinian people's interest to keep the ceasefire with Israel, but only 26% support the use of force by Palestinian security services against those who break the calm. (FAFO-Norway)

I understand we are in the process of giving humdreds of millions of dollars to the uber terrorists. My question is why?  How many blows to the head do we have to take just to define the enemy. We are the Hedda Nussbaum of the Middle East (israel is running a close second).

Gaming Theory Nobel Winner Nixes Pullout 'Disaster'

Israeli Nobel Laureate Classifies Disengagement as ´Disaster´
By Ezra HaLevi

Nobel Laureate Prof. Yisrael Aumann addressed the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee Wednesday, calling the Disengagement a “disaster” and pleading for patience on the part of the gov't.

Aumann, who recently received the Nobel Prize for Economics due to his work in game theory, explained the basic principles of game theory to the committee. He also explained the application of those principles in reaching a final-status arrangement with the Jewish State’s Arab neighbors.

Using lessons from his innovations, Aumann attacked the unilateral removal of Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria last summer. He said that continued withdrawals would only lead to bloodshed, as they signal that Israel does not know what to do and is merely taking an action for the sake of “doing something.”


The Hebrew University professor told the Knesset committee that the urgency with which the government seeks to reach a settlement with the Arabs poses a great danger. He said patience and proper preparation on the economic and social levels are what will bring true peace to the region.

“The current drive for peace now, not tomorrow,” Aumann said, “is liable to bring about the opposite.”

The Nobel Laureate said that Israel’s Arab neighbors - “our cousins,” as he referred to them – must be convinced not that we are desperate for peace, but that we are willing to be patient and live with the current situation.

With Jews like these We don't need Palestinian Terrorists

Opinion is one thing. Advocacy that leads to Jewish death and puts Israel's very survival in question is quite another;

Leftist Jews urged Rice's 'tough line'

 JERUSALEM - Far left-leaning American Jewish organizations urged U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to pressure Israel during her brokering this week of a deal that for the first time hands to the Palestinians final control of the Gaza border, telling Rice her tough line against Israel will win her American Jewish support.

Rice  extended her stay in Jerusalem to push through the deal on the Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza that restricts Israel to monitor the area by camera, calls for a European presence at the border station, and gives the Palestinians final veto power on all vehicles and persons entering Gaza.

The deal was blasted  by Israel's military establishment in urgent messages sent to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's office. Hat tip: Dr. Nancy

These useless idiots know not what they wrought.Auschwitzprayer20shawls

And Spielberg, a self congratulating Jew who is a shondah on our people,  AUTO-ANTISEMITES, a new worrisome enemy;

Spielberg's Munich Pact  By Debbie Schlussel

Spielberg lied.

But not as much as he and admittedly anti-Israel scriptwriter Tony Kushner lied in this two-and-a-half-hour-plus celluloid fairy tale. Like the book on which it’s based, Munich is long, boring, and filled with fakery.

Spielberg’s “Black September” terrorist group is named after the Munich terrorists, who murdered the Israeli athletes in September. The real-life “Black September” is so named after Jordan’s massacre of 10,000 Palestinians in September 1970 – causing many Jordanian Palestinians to flee for safety in the West Bank and Israel.

Real-life Palestinians in 1973 beat to death U.S. diplomats, like Cleo Noel and George Curtis Moore in the Sudan, with Yasser Arafat personally giving the orders. (They were tortured to death and beaten so badly, authorities could not tell which of the two was black and which was white.)

Auschwitz20prisoners Spielberg’s Palestinian terrorists have cute, young, innocent, piano-playing daughters who will be fatherless. But he never shows the cute, young daughters of the Israeli athletes who were made fatherless – and whose fathers, unlike the Palestinian terrorists, were innocent victims with no choice in the matter.

Spielberg’s Mossad agents say bigoted things like, “The only blood that matters to me is Jewish blood,” and go around killing innocent people at whim. The real-life Mossad agents who hunted the Munich terrorists went to great pains to avoid killing innocents (whether or not they were Jewish), a reason it took so many years and financial resources to get all but one of them. (Jamil Al-Gashey lives safely under the protection of the terror-state Syria.) In real-life, they killed only one innocent man whom they mistakenly believed to be a terrorist – a Moroccan waiter in Norway – for which those Mossad agents responsible were tried, convicted, and imprisoned, something that does not happen in the Spielberg version of events. Spielberg’s Mossad agents complain that Israel has no death penalty, so killing the terrorists violates Israeli law. Real-life Israel does have a death penalty for Nazi war criminals, like Eichmann, and recognized that the Munich terrorists were equally worthy.

Spielberg’s Mossad agents cry and brood a lot, unsure of themselves and why they are pursuing terrorists. Been there, seen that before – in the left-wing Israeli film Walk on Water. But it bears little resemblance to the real Mossad agents who hunted the terrorists. They were not metrosexual, sensitive guys – as badly as Spielberg and Kushner would like them to be. Like Golda Meir, they could not have been more certain of the just purpose of their mission.

Then, there is something I haven’t read in other critics’ accounts of Munich – something that made me sick to my stomach. Are the lives of the innocent Israeli athletes so worthless that the scenes in which they are murdered by Palestinian terrorists are interspersed with the self-doubting Mossad agent having sex?  Thanks for cheapening these murdered athletes’ lives, Spielberg.
Munich_11_2

What can you expect from the man who said his meeting with Fidel Castro “was the eight most important hours of my life”?

Indeed. Never again will Spielberg get a shekel, half penny, plug nickel from me. It never dawned on me that Spielberg was glorifying a nazi, war  profiteering Schindler.  But that is what he did. Schindler was an unapologetic war profiteer, getting rich off  Jewish slaves. If he had a crisis of conscience at the end of the war when the allies victory was painfully clear, one can only guess but if anyone deserved an homage it was Raoul Wallenberg - Atlas.

UPDATE December 29th I wish to clarify something here. If I implied that Oskar Schindler was not worthy of the love, respect,and admiration of the world let me stand corrected.

Oskar Schindler was a great man. A righteous gentile. He earned the title through his unselfish, heroic acts and must be remembered as such. Yes, a righteous man. Deserving of his place at Yad Vashem and in the hearts and souls of every Jew that lives and survived. It was Speileberg's motives I questioned, not Oskar Schindler's.

 

Yad Vashem is the Israel Holocaust Museum and Center. It is the organization responsible for bestowing the honor, "Righteous Gentile". In a world where clowns, frauds and monsters can receive the Nobel Peace Prize, Yad Vashem is meticulous about researching candidates for the title Righteous Gentile. The decision to bestow that title is, to my mind, irrefutable proof of a person's status as moral hero. Yad Vashem awarded the title to Schindler in 1967 and confirmed it and extended it to his wife in 1993.

When I reviewed the Yad Vashem site I learned things I hadn't known about Schindler. For example:

1. In 1943 Schindler worked as a secret operative of the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee and "undertook a highly risky journey to Budapest, where he met with two representatives of Hungarian Jewry. He reported to them about the desperate plight of the Jews in Poland and discussed possible ways of relief.";

2. Schindler was arrested and interrogated numerous times by the Gestapo but he did not stop his activities; and,

3. Schindler arranged the only recorded case where Jews (300 women) were saved and released after having been shipped to a death camp.

If Schindler had only been self-interested he would have avoided antagonizing the Gestapo and hoarded his money. He could then have saved his own skin at the conclusion of the war by arranging passage to South America as did so many other Nazis. Instead Schindler (a man with an apparently money-hungry nature) beggared himself to save Jews. He risked his life by breaking almost every rule of a vicious dictatorship. His activities were so unprecedented for a German that after the war he was an outcast from and subject to threats and harassment by German emigree colonies. Hat tip MarcH

 

Christmas in Bethlehem

The New Statesman and the Baltimore Sun paint a very grim picture of the city of Bethlehem a few weeks before Christmas. According to the Sun:

A once-bustling neighborhood has become a ghost town. Shops are shuttered or empty, and the streets are deserted. A sign carries the name of an abandoned restaurant. "Memories," it says. Another sign near an empty shell says, "Border Cafeteria."

Typical of the The Statesman's claims is the following:

The flicker of optimism has been dampened by the completion of the barrier around Bethlehem and the installation of the gate, which has given a sense of permanence to the isolation and the economy's free fall. The crossing is daunting even for tourists who are searched on their coaches as they enter Bethlehem.

According to the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, each one of these points is factually incorrect:

  • There is no barrier (completely encircling) Bethlehem. There is only a fence where the Bethlehem area interfaces with Jerusalem and close to the 1949 armistice line. Only a very small segment of the fence is a concrete wall preventing terrorists from shooting at motorists.
  • The economy has actually improved significantly. While 110,000 tourists visited the city during 2004, more than 218,000 have already visited Bethlehem during 2005 - an increase of around 100%. There have been corresponding increases in Bethlehem's main industries: Textiles 50%, Stone and marble export 40%, commercial transportation 20%. These increases have brought millions of dollars into the local economy.
  • The IDF has decided to take a "calculated risk" to make access easier for tourists. According to IDF Lt. Col. Aviv Feigel in the Jerusalem Post, "The military will try to speed the process by not checking every tourist bus, but conducting spot checks of random buses instead."

Israel is taking these steps despite the fact that "Half of the Israeli terror fatalities in 2004 came from attackers who entered Jerusalem from Bethlehem."

The New Statesman also raps Israel for pushing Christians out of Bethlehem. But as FrontPage magazine points out, it is actually the Palestinians who have been forcing the city's Christian residents to leave.

The Vatican, in a rare diplomatic move, called publicly on the Israelis to intervene in Bethlehem on behalf of its severely receding Christian population. Now totaling less than 12% of Bethlehem's population, Christians, who have been the targets of continual PA violence, might leave entirely. The result will be that in the place where Jesus was born there will no longer be a Christian community.

And just this week, Palestinian gunmen disrupted Christmas preparations in Bethlehem  taking over the municipality building across from the Church of Nativity (See Associated Press). For a detailed report on Muslim violence against Christians that is largely ignored by the media, click here. Despite the Palestinian efforts to push out Christian residents, this holiday season will see thousands of pilgrims celebrating Christmas in Bethlehem. The New Statesmen and Baltimore Sun should cover the facts and not rely on Palestinian propaganda.

Bloody Sudan Govt Arming Palestinian Terror

Palestinians' weapons route traced to Sudan's Darfur
Palestinian terrorists have received a steady supply of weapons and ammunition from Sudan.Cross_2 Western intelligence sources said Sudan has been a major source of weaponry for such groups as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the ruling Fatah militia.

The worst crimes against humanity are being committed in Darfur, the Sudan. The Radical Islamonazis are raping women, children, selling them into slavery. The militias are torching villages, destroying crops, , stealing cattle and slaughtering those whose skin colour does not resemble theirs.If you are not up to speed on the Sudan go here and scroll. And the world stands by and watches and talks about how it's a terrible thing. And our own Congress won't help these brutalized people.
ALL ISLAMONAZIS ARE CONNECTED! That is why the left is so learning disabled. "Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. Sheer stupidty. Want more stupidity?

Congress rebuffs Rice on Darfur troop funding
Congress rejected U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's impassioned appeal to provide $50 million for African troops trying to keep peace in Sudan's Darfur region, the State Department said on Monday.
This is a seperate story but I had to bring it up because we ought to be ashamed. Photo story here.

Now we find these radical islamic muslims are funding the Palestinians.

Western intelligence sources said Sudan has been a major source of weaponry for such groups as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the ruling Fatah militia. The sources said the Sudanese weapons, delivered via Egypt, were far cheaper than from other places.

[On Sunday, Palestinian gunners fired a Kassam-class short-range missile into the Israeli city of Ashkelon, Middle East Newsline reported. The missile was said to have landed into a maximum security infrastructure facility in what Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz termed an increase in Palestinian capability.]

"It's [Sudan] become a huge source of weaponry for the Palestinians as well as for other militias in need of equipment," a source said. "There's an entire infrastructure that's proven highly reliable."

Starving_sudan_1From Darfour, Sudanese smugglers have transported the weaponry to Egypt. The equipment then was brought over the Suez Canal into the Sinai Peninsula. From the eastern Sinai town of Rafah, the weapons, ammunition and explosives were smuggled into the Gaza Strip.

If that's the case we have reason enough to give Robert Zoellick anything and everything he needs to stop their suffering and protect the dhimmis, Christians, moderate Muslims, from a brutal Radical Islamic government.

Zoellick: "While you are bickering," he said, "your people are dying." It was the first time Zoellick became visibly angry on his latest trip to Africa, but it would not be the last. Before heading back to Washington, Zoellick would blow his top. Read it

You can not look away from this. Please write your congressmen. Please ask that they give Condi Rice the funding for the AU peacekeepers. Those guys are being murdered as well. Where is Angelina Jolie indeed.

UPDATE: December 22 The latest from the great humanitarian and savior Kofi Annan

It's been a tough year for U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan.

So you might imagine Mr. Annan would feel a bit contrite as the year draws to a close. Apparently not. At a year-end press briefing this week, Mr. Annan was more snarls than smiles. To a question from London Times correspondent James Bone, an eyewitness tells us the Secretary General had this to say: "I think you are being very cheeky. Listen James Bone, you've been behaving like an overgrown schoolboy in this room for many, many months and years. You are an embarrassment to your colleagues and to your profession. Please stop misbehaving and please let's move on to a serious subject."

The question that Mr. Annan deemed insufficiently serious concerns an unresolved chapter from Mr. Volcker's investigation. In 1998, Kojo Annan purchased a Mercedes in Geneva in his father's name, thus enabling him to get a $6,541 diplomatic discount. The car was then shipped to the Annans' native Ghana, where diplomatic immunity further exempted the car from $14,000 worth of taxes. The Volcker report details a letter Kojo sent to a friend, saying, "I will confirm with my dad I can use his name," and Kofi Annan's secretary sent him a note asking if another of his aides would write a letter saying the car belonged to the Secretary General. That other letter has never been found. It remains unclear whether the elder Annan knew his name was being used for the purposes of tax evasion.

Reporters have been pressing the Secretary General's office on this subject for months, to no avail. Benny Avni, the New York Sun's outstanding reporter at Turtle Bay, noted last month that spokeswoman Marie Okabe had previously exploded at Mr. Bone when he raised the issue: "We don't consider this a U.N. matter," she said. Sensitive subject, apparently.

Jewish Father of Five Murdered in Hevron Hills Shooting Attack

Terrorists shot at Israeli motorists, killing one and injuring two others, in the southern Hevron Hills region Friday afternoon. The attack took place 20 miles south of Jerusalem, between Beit Haggai and Har Manoah - a region slated to be left on the Arab side of the Partition Fence. The terrorists opened fire from a vehicle driving in the opposite direction.

The attack took place in between Beit Haggai and Har Manoah - a region slated to be left on the "other" side of the Partition Fence

UPDATE: Breaking news

Michael Ledeen of NRO is reporting on a phone call he got from someone he trusts who says Ahmadinejad was the target of an assassination attempt - apparently unsuccessful (damn).  Rick over at Right Wing Nuthouse has the whole story and then some here
Tehran, Iran -- One of the bodyguards of Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was killed and another wounded when an attempt to ambush the presidential motorcade was thwarted in the southeastern province of Sistan and Baluchestan, according to a semi-official newspaper and local residents.
“At 6:50 pm on Thursday, the lead car in the presidential motorcade confronted armed bandits and trouble-makers on the Zabol-Saravan highway”, the semi-official Jomhouri Islami reported on Saturday.
“In the ensuing armed clash, the driver of the vehicle, who was an indigenous member of the security services, and one of the president’s bodyguards died, while another bodyguard was wounded”, the newspaper, which was founded by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, wrote.
Ahmadinejad traveled to the restive province, where ethnic Baluchis have been fighting for years for autonomy, on Wednesday and returned to Tehran on Friday afternoon. Tehran often refers to anti-government activists and political opponents of the Islamist regime as “bandits” and “trouble-makers”.
The newspaper report made no mention of Ahmadinejad’s whereabouts during the attack on his bodyguards’ vehicle, but Zabol residents reached by telephone said there were rumors in the town that the hard-line president himself was the target of the attack, which took place near Zabol.

“Many people have been rounded up for questioning after the attack and the authorities here were clearly shaken by the incident”, a Zabol resident told Iran Focus.
The Sunni Baluchis have faced years of religious and racial discrimination under Iran’s Shiite clergy-dominated government.
Ahmadinejad called the Holocaust a “myth” on Wednesday, on the first day of his trip to the province.
“They have fabricated a legend under the name 'Massacre of the Jews', and they hold it higher than God himself, religion itself and the prophets themselves”, he told a crowd in Zahedan, the provincial capital of Sistan and Baluchestan.

The presidential office and other government officials have refrained from making any comment on the ambush.

"It's not about blood money," La Dolce GIUSTO!

While I live and breathe, the holiday season has indeed started and what gifts she brings......

Italian court orders Iran asset freeze

A court in Italy has ordered the freezing of an Iranian government account held in a Rome bank in what lawyers say represents an unprecedented legal victoryBombing_1 for three US families seeking compensation from     Iran for its alleged support of Palestinian suicide bombings that killed their relatives.

Lawyers and activists in Washington said their success in Italy was likely to be followed by similar cases against Iran in other courts in Europe and possibly Asia. The ruling could also open the floodgates to similar civil cases against the Islamic regime and other states accused by the US of sponsoring terror.

A civil court in Rome ordered Banca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL) last week to freeze an account held by the Iranian government, drawing diplomatic protests from Tehran on the basis that Iran's official accounts were protected by the Vienna Convention governing diplomatic relations.

"It's not about blood money," said Steven Flatow, a US lawyer from New Jersey whose daughter Alisa was killed by a Palestinian suicide bomber on a bus in Gaza in 1995.

What makes this so noteworthy in addition to the obvious, is holding Iran responsible for a Palestinian homicide bombing -Atlas

UPDATE: Nuclear-Minded Iran Meets With Top Palestinian Terrorist
Top Iranian officials met this week with a leader of Hamas, a Palestinian terrorist group explicitly dedicated to Israel's destruction. Khaled Mashaal, Hamas' political chief, conferred with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who months ago called for Israel to be "wiped off the map." Ahmadinejad's rhetoric has intensified concerns about Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.  Mohamed ElBaradei, head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has said Iran could be only "months" away from being able to assemble atomic weapons if it starts enriching uranium. Ask your members of Congress to support the Iran Freedom Support Act, which would tighten sanctions on Iran to choke off funds it could use to assemble atomic arms.

Rat Bastard Abbas Pays Vig On Jewish Blood

Abbas Approves Monthly Grant To Families of Suicide Bombers

The head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, has approved a new law,Suicidebomber_1 providing monetary grants to the families of suicide bombers.

Abbas gave his approval just six days ago, a day before a suicide bomber struck the HaSharon Mall in Netanya, killing five Israelis and wounding scores of others. hat tip:MarcH and flopthree (the synchronous Atlasphere )

Bush plans overhaul of US foreign aid system Washington Financial Times

President George W. Bush’s administration is drawing up plans to carry out the biggest overhaul of the US foreign aid apparatus in more than 40 years in an attempt to assert more political control over international assistance, according to officials and aid experts.

The proposed reorganisation could lead to a takeover by the State Department of the independent US Agency for International Development. USAID was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1961, managing aid programmes, disaster relief and post-war reconstruction totalling billions of dollars each year.

Stop funding terror, like Bolton said in his speech last night to ZOA. We paid 22% of the cost of that  UN map of Palestine sans Israel, WE PAY 22% OF ANNAN'S SALARY. Fire the spineless snake. He has more  blood on his hands than a bariatric surgeon.

This is not a conflict between two sides with legitimate grievances and competing interests. It is a conflict, at its core, between a nation that asks only to live in peace with its neighbors and a racist, hate-filled group of nations and peoples who seek only the destruction, the annihilation, the extermination of all Jews from the Middle East.

Joe Farah weighs in on No Jews allowed;

I'm still waiting for the international outrage.

I'm still waiting for my colleagues in the news media to jump on the story.

I'm still waiting for Americans to recognize the way the story illustrates the root cause of conflict in the Middle East.

I refer to last week's story of how WND's Jerusalem bureau chief, Aaron Klein, was denied entry to Syria because he is a Jew.

As I prepare this column for publication, not one other news agency in the world has reported on it.

Why is this story so significant?

Because it so perfectly illustrates why we continue to have conflict in the Middle East between Arabs and Israelis.

UPDATE: Abu Mazen's bloodlusty days go back a long way...........Abbas and Arafat will always have Munich.

Naomi Ragen shares Information about the PLO's new head, who funded the Munich Massacre of Israel's Olympic athletes.  From pioneering attorney Nitsana Darshan Leitner,

Its no wonder that, as the NY Times editorial suugests, the sympathetic Palestinian character in the Munich film"sounded like Abu Mazen,"  -- it probably was Abu Mazen, see below press release from 2003. Abu Mazen funded the  Black
September attack  on the Israeli team.

ISRAELI CIVIL RIGHTS GROUP ACCUSES ABU MAZEN OF HAVING FUNDED 1972 MUNICH OLYMPIC MASSACRE, CALLS FOR PROBE OF PALESTINIAN PM's ROLE

Letter to German and American Leaders Alleges that New P.A. Prime Minister Financed "Black September" Terror Attack Which Killed 11 Athletes Including U.S. Citizen

The Israeli civil rights group Shurat Hadin has announced a campaign to convince U.S. and German law enforcement agencies to open an investigation into the role of newly-appointed Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Abu Mazen in the massacre of eleven Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich, Germany.

On September 5, 1972, a squad of heavily armed Palestinian terrorists attacked the dormitories housing the Israeli Olympic team and murdered a coach and weight-lifter David Berger, who was an American citizen. The terrorists then took nine Israeli athletes hostage. While the terrorists and their hostages were transported to the airport, the German police botched a rescue attempt and all nine of the athletes were murdered.

The director of Shurat Hadin, attorney Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, sent letters this week to U.S. President George W. Bush and German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder containing new information indicating that that Abu Mazen (whose given name is Mahmoud Abbas) provided financing to the PLO's Black September terrorist group, in order to carry out the notorious terrorist attack at the 1972 Olympic Games. While recent newsmedia profiles of Abu Mazen have accentuated the Palestinian leader's alleged "terrorism-free" personal history, the Shurat Hadin charges that in 1972, Abu Mazen, then a high ranking PLO official, provided financing for the terrorist attacks being perpetrated by Yassir Arafat's PLO faction Fatah under the nom de guerre Black September.
Shurat Hadin is basing its information on published statements by the terrorist who masterminded the the Munich attack, Mohammed Daoud Oudeh ("Abu Daoud"). In his French-language autobiography, Palestine: From Jerusalem to Munich, Abu Daoud describes the role of Abu Mazen in providing the funds to carry out the Black September Olympic attack.

Furthermore, in an interview with journalist Don Yaeger of Sports Illustrated Magazine in August 2002, Abu Daoud reiterated his charges that Abu Mazen supplied the money for the deadly attack. In his memoir Abu Daoud states: "After Oslo in 1993, Abu Mazen went to the White House Rose Garden for a photo op with Arafat, President Bill Clinton and Israel's Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.

"Do you think that ... would have been possible if the Israelis had known that Abu Mazen was the financier of our operation?" Abu Daoud writes. "I doubt it." Today, the Bush Administration seeks a Palestinian negotiating partner "uncompromised by terror," yet last year Abu Mazen met in Washington with Secretary of State Colin Powell."

Abu Daoud's allegations have been confirm by sources within the Palestinian Authority, according to Shurat Hadin.

Attorney Darshan-Leitner's letter to President Bush states: "Under your leadership the United States has declared that it will no longer maintain contacts with those tainted by terrorist pasts. It appears that the new Palestinian leader, on whom the United States and Israel are now pinning their hopes, was also involved in murderous attacks perpetrated by the PLO's Black September. If proven true, Abu Mazen's role in the brutal killing of the Israeli athletes and American citizen David Berger must preclude his involvement in the negotiations between the United States, Israel and her Arab neighbors."

Both Germany and Israel still have the legal jurisdiction to prosecute those involved in the Munich Olympic killings.

Islamic Jihad, also known as Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), is one out of seven Palestinian groups that is listed as a foreign terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department. This group is responsible for more than 40 attacks that have left over 100 Israelis dead. Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has refused to disarm groups such as PIJ and Hamas, even though such militant organizations pose the greatest competition against his Fatah party in the upcoming PA election on January 25

Israel Bends Over

And please don't even think of telling me that Israel should have no say in what "political parties"  dance at the next Pali election. Hamas is not a political party, Hamas is a murdering bunch of thugs that want to take over the world. This "concession" is just another victory. And even if Israel has no choice, they don't have to sanction it.

Declaration of War: Syria uh Hamas uh Hizbollah uh Iran uh PA uh Al Aksa uh PA .....

So we are supposed to believe this rocket was rocketed?

I read earlier in the week that a rocket was found on Sharon's property and I immediatelyFish_sicilian_message thought 'oh yeah that's rich", I can just see these shmendricks running onto the property and leaving this thing as a message. Sort of like wrapping a fish in newspaper to tell the Corleones that Luca Brasi sleeps with fishes "It's a Sicilian message" (yup that was on again last night).

Palestinian rocket was aimed at Sharon
Telegraph Sat, 22 Oct 2005
A Palestinian militant group which fired a rocket found at the ranch of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon last week said today that it had been targeting the Israeli leader and would continue to do so.

Anyway, there is no way I believe that a rocket sailed by all of Israel's state of the art defense systems undetected. But that is not my point, The terrorists say they will continue until they successfully assasinate Sharon? Hey! That's a declaration of war.  We know they mean it. And we know they take out heads of state. The assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri of Lebanon was a carefully planned terrorist act organized by Syrian and Lebanese intelligence services, according to a report by the chief UN investigator, Detlev Mehlis, made public on Thursday. The report said, "The assassination of 14 February 2005 was carried out by a group with an extensive organization and considerable resources and capabilities....There is converging evidence pointing at both Lebanese and Syrian involvement in this terrorist act." (Warren Hoge,  Jim's bro)

Hariri's son, Beirut MP Saad Hariri, said his father "told me that President Bashar Assad threatened him, telling him: 'This is what I want. If you think that President Chirac and you are going to run Lebanon, you are mistaken. It is not going to happen. President Lahoud is me. Whatever I tell him, he follows suit. This extension [of Lahoud's term] is to happen or else I will break Lebanon over your head and Walid Jumblat's....So, you either do as you are told or we will get you and your family wherever you are.'"

If I were King of the Forest, I would take out everyone of the those murdering bastards so that we could all live in peace.

Has al-Qaida started operating in the Gaza Strip? A leaflet distributed in Khan Yunis over the weekend by al-Qaida's "Palestine branch" announced that the terrorist group has begun working towards uniting the Muslims under one Islamic state.

"The Muslim nation has been subjected, through various periods, to conspiracies by the infidels," the leaflet said. "[The infidels] have brought down the Islamic Caliphate, dividing the nation into small and weak states. They also managed to dilute the Islamic and character of the nation."

The leaflet said unity was the only way for Muslims to achieve victory over their enemies, adding that the terrorist group's chief goal was to enforce Islamic law in the entire world.

Televised images of the boy, reportedly killed by Israeli soldiers, instantly ignited anti-Israel and anti-Jewish passions all over the world, provoking a wave of violence from the lynching of two Israeli reservists in Ramallah to synagogue burnings in France. In the ensuing years, the story of Muhammad al-Dura has attained near-mythic stature in the Arab and Muslim world.

Palis Loot Their Future- Now it's Land for War, not Peace

"These greenhouses are for the Palestinian people," he said. "We don't want anyone to touch or harm anything that can be useful for our people." His plea did little good. Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia implored Palestinians to leave the structures intact, even as people scavenged through debris elsewhere in the settlement.

Greenhouses_1

American Jewish donors had bought more than 3,000 greenhouses from Israeli settlers in Gaza for $14 million last month, and transferred them to the Palestinian Authority. Former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, who brokered the deal, put up $500,000 of his own cash. More

ISRAEL THREATENS EXTREME RESPONSE TO TERRORISM


Make no mistake about it. Read this very carefully, it was what the disengagement was all about.

If Oslo, which I vehemently opposed  (rewarding terror?), was Land for Peace,  Gaza may essentially be LAND FOR WAR.

UPDATE: September 15

The notoriously anti-American, anti-semetic and grossly inaccurate depcted the looting as follows; The BBC reports:

the Israeli pullout is proof of one thing - that the militants are the best hope of getting a state, that violence succeeds where politics fails.

And the future here will not be written without the involvement of the gunmen.

 

After 38 years of occupation, Palestinians were taking what they could from the wreckage of the settlements. A Palestinian colleague looked on, without surprise.

"We just got our land back," he said, "What else can anyone expect?"

But a well-dressed passer-by beseeched us - in perfect English - to stop filming.

Palestinians can still see the limits of their freedom.

It stops at the glittering edge of the Mediterranean Sea

The following are reported plans to finance a potential Palestinian state:

From the United States: Doubling the present $275 million to $550 million – this after Palestinians have already received $1.5 billion (and how much of that was stolen by the late Yasser Arafat?)

MUSLIM KILLING CHRISTIANS! Dont just stand there!

Killing Christians, "honor murders", fffffffffffffffolks whats it going to take? Where is the goddamn media?

A Muslim mob converged on the Palestinian Christian town of Taibeh, burning and looting 13 homes owned by relatives of a man suspected of having an affair and impregnating a 30 year old Muslim woman who worked for him. Prior to the mob attack, in yet another suspected "honor killing," the pregnant woman, Hiyam Ajaj, was found dead from poison.
 
Lara Sukhtian, of the Associated Press (AP), has written a compelling article about the incident that included context regarding Muslim-Christian tensions, as well as the disturbing practice of "honor killing" among both Muslim and Christian Arabs.  While I understand that coverage of the massive Hurricane Katrina relief effort has appropriately bumped many other news items, this compelling story is of particular interest to Christians and women's rights advocates, as well as the general public.
 
In contrast to the dwindling population of Christians in the PA territories -- as well as surrounding  Muslim countries -- Israel's Christian population is vibrant and growing.

The Munich Massacre

By Mitchell Bard


It was 4:30 in the morning on Sept. 5, 1972, when five Arab terrorists wearing track sweat suitsMunich_1972 climbed the six-foot six-inch fence surrounding the Olympic Village. Although they were seen by several people, no one thought anything was unusual since athletes routinely hopped the fence; moreover, the terrorists' weapons were hidden in athletic bags. These five were met by three more men who are presumed to have obtained credentials to enter the village.

Just before 5, the Arabs knocked on the door of Israeli wrestling coach Moshe Weinberg. When Weinberg opened the door he realized something was wrong and shouted a warning to his comrades. He and weightlifter Joseph Romano attempted to block the door while other Israelis escaped, but they were killed by the terrorists. The Arabs then succeeded in rounding up nine Israelis to hold as hostages.

At 9:30, the terrorists announced that they were Palestinians and demanded that Israel release 200 Arab prisoners and that the terrorists be given safe passage out of Germany.

After hours of tense negotiations, the Palestinians, who it was later learned belonged to a PLO faction called Black September, agreed to a plan whereby they were to be taken by helicopter to the NATO air base at Firstenfeldbruck where they would be given an airplane to fly them and their hostages to Cairo. The Israelis were then taken by bus to the helicopters and flown to the airfield. In the course of the transfer, the Germans discovered that there were eight terrorists instead of the five they expected and realized that they had not assigned enough marksmen to carry out the plan to kill the terrorists at the airport.

After the helicopters landed at the air base around 10:30 p.m., the German sharpshooters Munich_massacre_1attempted to kill the terrorists and a bloody firefight ensued. At 11, the media was mistakenly informed that the hostages had been saved and the news was announced to a relieved Israeli public. Almost an hour later, however, new fighting broke out and one of the helicopters holding the Israelis was blown up by a terrorist grenade. The remaining hostages in the second helicopter were shot to death by one of the surviving terrorists.

At 3 a.m., a drawn and teary-eyed Jim McKay, who had been reporting the drama throughout the day as part of ABC's Olympic coverage, announced: "They're all gone."

Five of the terrorists were killed along with one policeman, and three were captured. A little over a month later, on Oct. 29, a Lufthansa jet was hijacked by terrorists demanding that the Munich killers be released.

The Germans capitulated and the terrorists were let go, but an Israeli assassination squad was assigned to track them down along with those responsible for planning the massacre. According to George Jonas in Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, eight of the 11 men targeted for death were killed. Of the remaining three, one died of natural causes and the other two were assassinated, but it is not known for sure if they were killed by Israeli agents.

Meanwhile, the mastermind of the massacre remains at large. In fact, in 1999, Abu Daoud admitted his role in his autobiography, Memoirs of a Palestinian Terrorist. He claims his commandos never intended to harm the athletes and blamed their deaths on the German police and the stubbornness of then-Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (JTA, May 4, 1999).

The massacre of 11 Israeli athletes was not considered sufficiently serious to merit canceling or postponing the Olympics. "Incredibly, they're going on with it," Jim Murray of the Los Angeles Times wrote at the time. "It's almost like having a dance at Dachau."

Here in America the terrorst organization CAIR continues to chip away at the very foundation of this country.

Muslims aim to challenge critics in America

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- In the days following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, many American Muslims were fearful about leaving their homes. Months later, many remained reluctant to respond to critics who made derogatory comments about Islam or Muslim communities.
Now, almost four years after the attacks, American Muslims are being urged by their leaders to answer back.

As the Plainfield-based Islamic Society of North America hosts nearly 40,000 Muslims this weekend near Chicago at its 42nd annual convention, there is plenty of talk here about how Muslims must answer their critics and, if need be, get tough with them.

At a Saturday morning seminar attended by more than 200 people, the discussion included how to apply pressure on politicians who smear the faith, the benefits of corporate boycotts and what constitutes legal grounds for defamation suits.

"The key," Corey P. Saylor, government affairs director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations told the audience, "is to not just sit back and take it."[take what for G-d's sake?- Atlas]

Already fighting on behalf of American Muslims is the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, as it is commonly known. The organization, playing a prominent role at ISNA's convention, has developed a reputation for being something of a pit bull in protecting the civil rights of Muslims.

CAIR, for example, sued a North Carolina congressman after he accused the organization of acting as a fundraising arm for Hezbollah, a militant Palestinian group. The council also organized a boycott against a radio station until it fired a disc jockey who called Islam a terrorist organization. CAIR also brought considerable pressure on a Colorado lawmaker who asserted that America should take out Islam's holy sites in the event of another terrorist attack.

Arsalan T. Iftikhar, the national legal director for CAIR, said Saturday it was time for everyday Muslims to "defend the image and reputation of the community and Islam in general."

"I am here to teach you how the American Muslim community can legally empower itself to protect itself in the American courts," he said, as he went into the nuances of the limits of the First Amendment.

 

Sayyid Syeed, the secretary general of ISNA, a group generally less vocal than CAIR, earlier in the weekend said his organization is considering filing defamation lawsuits against some of its sharpest critics.
Although he declined to name the potential targets of such suits,
one of the critics most often cited by Muslim leaders is Steven Emerson.

 Emerson's 1994 documentary, "Jihad in America," about radical Islamic groups operating in the United States, won a prestigious journalism award. But his credibility suffered after his on-air commentary about the bombing of the federal building in Oklahoma City. He was among the first pundits to say the bombing had the earmarks of Middle Eastern terrorism. It turned out to be the product of homegrown terrorists.

Via phone Saturday, Emerson said ISNA's interest in using defamation law amount to an effort to stifle free speech. "They are apologists for militant Islam," he said.

Iftikhar said such comments are exactly the reason Muslim groups are becoming more vigilant in responding to their critics. "That's his mantra," he said of Emerson. "He used innuendo, conjecture and defamation."

while at the very same time;  Muslims ransack Christian village

Efforts were under way on Sunday to calm the situation in this Christian village east of Ramallah after an attack by hundreds of Muslim men from nearby villages left many houses and vehicles torched.Radical_islam

The incident began on Saturday night and lasted until early Sunday, when Palestinian Authority security forces interfered to disperse the attackers. Residents said several houses were looted and many families were forced to flee to Ramallah and other Christian villages, although no one was injured.

The attack on the village of 1,500 was triggered by the murder of a Muslim woman from the nearby village of Deir Jarir earlier this week. The 30-year-old woman, according to PA security sources, was apparently murdered by members of her family for having had a romance with a Christian man from Taiba.

"When her family discovered that she had been involved in a forbidden relationship with a Christian, they apparently forced her to drink poison," said one source. "Then they buried her without reporting her death to the relevant authorities."

When the PA security forces decided to launch an investigation into the woman's death, her family protested for fear that the relationship would be exposed. The family was further infuriated by the decision to exhume the body for autopsy.

The attack is one of the worst against Christians in the West Bank in many years. Residents said it took the PA security forces several hours to reach Taiba. Others complained that the IDF, which is in charge of overall security in the area, did not answer their desperate calls for immediate help.

 

"More than 500 Muslim men, chanting Allahu akbar [God is great], attacked us at night," said a Taiba resident. "They poured kerosene on many buildings and set them on fire. Many of the attackers broke into houses and stole furniture, jewelry and electrical appliances."

With the exception of large numbers of PA policemen, the streets of Taiba were completely deserted on Sunday as the residents remained indoors. Many torched cars littered the streets. At least 16 houses had been gutted by fire and the assailants also destroyed a statue of the Virgin Mary.

 

"It was like a war, they arrived in groups, and many of them were holding clubs," said another resident.

"Some people saw them carrying weapons. They first attacked houses belonging to the Khoury family [looking for the man who had the affair with the women, not realizing he had already fled the village.] Then they went to their relatives. They entered the houses and destroyed everything there. Then they tried to enter the local beer factory, but were repelled by PA security agents.

The fire engine arrived five hours later."
Col. Tayseer Mansour, commander of the PA police in the Ramallah area, said his men arrived late because of the need to coordinate their movements with the IDF. "The delay resulted in the torching of a number of houses and cars in the village," he said.

 

Taiba, the only West Bank village that is completely inhabited by Christians, is famous for its Taiba Beer factory, which was established by the Khoury family in 1994.

The residents are Roman Catholic, Greek Orthodox or Greek Catholic. The village was originally called Ephraim, and is thought to be the city to which Jesus came with his disciples before his crucifixion: "Jesus therefore walked no more openly among the Jews; but went thence unto a country near the wilderness, into a city called Ephraim" (John 11:54).

According to some accounts, Salah a-Din, who led the war against the Crusaders, was responsible for the name change. He is said to have found the villagers there to be nice and kind - in Arabic, taybeen - and the name stuck, to become Taiba.

Billions for Palestinian Murderers, Circle Jerk for Israel

Israel’s acting finance minister Ehud Olmert ends Washington talks without  US commitment on Israel's $2.1bn aid request for disengagement costs. Can you believe that?

“It would be strange,” Olmert said after meeting secretary of state Condoleezza Rice Wednesday “If America withheld the grant,” which Israel has sought to help defray the costs of relocating Gaza communities and army infrastructure.

Strange? Talk about understatement...........it would be perverse, depraved.Gaza_family

DEBKAfiles Washington sources note that, while heaping praise on Ariel Sharon for his courage in going through with the dismantling of 25 Israeli communities, the Bush administration will hold back financial assistance until he makes good on the “understood” position. This means that the West Bank security fence must exclude Maale Adumim, Gush Etzion, the Binyamin bloc near Ramallah, Ariel and the Beit Arieh region commanding Israel’s international airport. Israel will also be asked to continue pulling back from West Bank territory.

Are they kidding? They must be kidding. Billions to those dancing in the streets on 9/11.

Caroline Glick writes eloquently and sorrowfully of the disengagement;

And so, even as our souls cry out in pain as we stare wild-eyed at the sight of 8,000 Gaza_mother_evictedJewish patriots, transformed in a moment into homeless, wandering Jews in the Land of Israel, our duty is to soldier on and work to preempt further destruction.

The foundational myth of the Left is that Jewish extremism, not Palestinian terrorism, is the cause of Israel's present security woes and the source of the constant wars that have plagued us since the dawn of modern Zionism. What we saw this week was that these people – whom one British reporter standing outside the synagogue in the now-ruined city of Neveh Dekalim ever so eloquently referred to last Thursday as "the hardest of the hard-line settlers" – are anything but extreme.

The expelled residents of Gush Katif – from the farmers of Atzmona,Gaza_nursery Katif, Netzarim, Netzer Hazani and Kfar Darom, the surfers and fishermen of Shirat Hayam, the Torah scholars of Neveh Dekalim and the mothers of Gadid – are not "hard-line" or "extremists." They are the finest sons and daughters of Israel. They are the bravest soldiers in the Israeli military and the most patriotic citizens that Israel has produced.

The heroism the Jews of Gaza and northern Samaria displayed in the face of their own destruction is of another order altogether. Standing before their own army, on the surface, they were faced with a terrible choice. Do they fight their countrymen to maintain their communities, or do they accept their cruel and inexplicable fate?

and the US is playing hardball with assistance? Look at what Israel contributes to the world and to the greater good. And what have the Palestinians done? Taught the world to mercilessly murder to get anything you want. Is this what we, a free people, are advocating?

Palestinian aid boost backed, 3 BillionG8_3

The leaders of the Group of Eight gave strong support Friday to a new initiative to give $3bn a year in aid to the Palestinian authority once Israel withdraws from the Gaza Strip this year.

No firm decisions on the aid package were taken at the G8 summit in Gleneagles. But diplomats from some non-UK countries suggested that significant momentum had built up among the leaders to agree a package this year.


This is on top of the 350 million Bush just gave the Palis back in February

 
WASHINGTON  — Eager to help Middle East peacemaking and combat911_celebration Palestinian poverty, President Bush said Wednesday he would seek $350 million to support the Palestinians.

"The beginnings of reform and democracy in the Palestinian territories are showing the power of freedom to break old patterns of violence and failure," the president said, noting that he is sending Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to the region early next week.

He said the money would go toward political, economic and social reforms for the Palestinians. (photo: Palestinians dancing in the streets on 9/11)

I am sure President Bush would like very much to see these funds go toward political, economic and social reforms for the Palestinians, "ending poverty". But that is  self deluding. Keeping the Palis in abject poverty is the objective of Islamic Jihad as it provides a priceless marketing tool in the war against the existence of Israel.

The Arab states have done nothing, nothing to alleviate Palestinian "suffering". To the contrary they have gone out of their way to keep the Palestinians in refugee camps, in squalor,  for all these decades.

I think it is disgusting that we are playing possum with Israel. We should be ashamed of ourselves.

Why isn't the New York Slime Times or the International Herald Trib All Over this story?

Billions for Jew killing, crumbs for peace

What Happened to Fifty Years of Aid Money? - Frederick Forsyth
I saw Gaza on my first visit to Israel in 1968. It was created in the same year as the UN created Israel: 1948. It was supposed to be a temporary camp for Palestinians displaced by the newGaza2_1 Israeli state. Its inhabitants were supposed to be able to return to new plots of land inside Israel or accept a living space in the lands of their surrounding Arab "brothers." (This was 19 years before the 1967 war.) Alas, the "brothers" did precious little. Gaza had better propaganda value as a festering sore of human misery to be waved before the world. It soon became a sewage-smelling slum.
    But aid did pour in; billions of it, enough to make that tiny plot a mini Garden of Eden, a prosperous, healthy, thriving enclave beside the blue Mediterranean south of Ashkelon. Fifty years later, it was still a sewage-smelling slum, wreathed in chaos. What happened to all the money? Well, the Palestinian leadership embezzled half of it; the rest went on guns, bullets, and explosives. (Daily Express-UK)

Goodbye Gaza, Hello Hamas

It's funny (not) but when I was flying down to Florida a couple of days ago, the FOX channel wasn't working on the flight and so  I was forced to watch CNN...........yeah I had to pin my eyelids open to stop from cringing.
Anyway, it was the day before the Jews were scheduled to disengage from Gaza and all CNN kept talking about, especially that 2nd rate, C list ,numbskull Jack  Caffertywas "why should America help Israel pay for the disengagement and the resettling of the families?" (three generations mind you) torn from their homeland.

*spit*

Oh and just for knowing, Bush has agreed to half of what Israel requested.

UPDATE:  Must give props to the New Zealand Herald for this extremely even handed piece on the UN and media's  prejudice on the Pali/Israeli conflict;

Two things immediately occurred to me while reading them. The first was the astounding absence of context; the second was that the attacks were coming from representatives of an organisation whose stance on the Israeli-Arab conflict, over decades, has hardly been exemplary.

Reading the articles, one would be forgiven for thinking Israelis have had nothing better to do than bomb or shoot up Palestinian communities. The implication is that Palestinians have, as a result of their benighted circumstances, had no choice but to take up arms against their oppressors.

The story is full of holes. Why no reference to the fact that Gaza has been for years been the planning base and launch pad for hundreds of bomb, mortar and other attacks against Israelis?

And in case we've become hardened to the idea of terrorism, let's remember what it entails: body parts splattered across city streets, infants without limbs, orphaned children maimed for life.

Why have the writers ignored the fact that, far from distancing itself from attacks by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has embraced these groups, failing to honour its commitments to dismantle the terror networks?

There's also no reference to the fact that establishing bomb factories in the midst of civilian neighbourhoods have long been favoured Palestinian extremist tactics.

Why, one wonders, did Newman fail to mention that those same traumatised Palestinian children she writes about have been subjected, through PA media outlets, school textbooks and holiday camps, to programmes inciting violence against Jews and lauding the "martyrdom" of suicide bombings.

Another missing piece: Palestinian leaders have for 10 years been responsible for administering Gaza. During that time, they have squandered millions of dollars in foreign aid - setting up a dozen security agencies, bankrolling propaganda, diverting funds to private bank accounts, buying apartments in Paris.

Then again, taking a one-sided view of the Israeli-Arab conflict is standard operating procedure for the United Nations.

amen...................thank you

GAZA WITHDRAWAl: "I'va Made a Deal with the Americans

And so it was said by Sharon and so it is what we will believe.

in an interview with the daily newspaper Yediot Ahronot, Ariel Sharon gave aGaza_2_2 strikingly succinct explanation of his diplomacy. "I've reached a deal with the Americans," he said. "I prefer a deal with the Americans to a deal with the Arabs."

There it is. So let's move forward and see what great can be accomplished.

 While Arab World Delights as Evictions Edge Nearer, the Arab world reacted with ill-disguised glee as Israeli soldiers confronted Jewish settlers. Al-Jazeera carried non-stop coverage of Israeli settlers weeping and waiting for the inevitable.

At the same time Israel will expect quid pro quo from the rest of the world. Israel Calls for End to Hostility at United Nations -( Bill Rigby)  Gaza  should put an end to UN hostility against Israel, Israeli UN Ambassador Dan Gillerman said on Monday. The comments echoed previous calls by Israel and the U.S. to halt the litany of anti-Israel resolutions passed by the UN General Assembly each year and dismantle the extensive bureaucracy built up around the Palestinian cause. "We hope we will see a more positive and a less combative General Assembly, recognizing that something dramatic, historic has happened," said Gillerman. (Reuters)

Frankly I see it all in Gillerman's take on it

Defense Minister Mofaz: Israel's Interests After Disengagement - A Jewish Majority with Defensible Borders
Israeli Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz said Monday: "The State of Israel is hereby carrying out a unilateral step, however coordinated it may be. Israel must defend its security interests, which primarily are to have a Jewish state with a Jewish majority, defensible borders, and strategic depth, and to make every possible effort to strive for peace."

Obviously Hamas aka Iran doesn't. Hamas: Pullout Beginning of Israel's End
The implementation of the disengagement plan marks "the beginning of the end for Israel," Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal told the London-based al-Hayat newspaper Tuesday. "It is unthinkable that our people will renounce the resistance, which made the enemy retreat,"

Look, if that's not a call for all out war, I don't know what is. At some point, the gloves come off, with America's blessing of course.

    Where for art thou BiBi?

    Netanyahu Resigns from Government

      By Hillel Fendel

    Finance Minister Binyamin Netanyahu announced his sudden resignation from the government this afternoon, citing the disengagement plan as dangerous and harmful to the State of Israel.

    "We have reached the moment of truth," Netanyahu informed the Cabinet in a letter he left on the Cabinet table after his dramatic announcement this afternoon. "There is a way of reaching peace and security, but unilateral withdrawal - under terrorist fire, and with nothing in return - is not the way to do this. Withdrawing from Gaza will turn that area into a terror base that will endanger the country.

    Less than a half-hour after the surprise announcement, the Cabinet voted by a 17-5 margin to approve the first stage of the disengagement. The three communities that are to be destroyed, according to the decision, are Kfar Darom, Netzarim and Morag.


    Not good, Not good at all. The Sharansky resignation was bad enough.........and many of my readers are wildly divided on this issue as am I. But I honestly believe those borders and those bands of settlers are too hard to defend (militarily and $$$$$$$$$$).

    Believe me the thought of that tiny country getting any smaller leaves me cold, dead cold. And I was dead set against Oslo. But this is different...........
    this is not land for peace.

    I don't see it as land for peace, I see it as strategy for war................they must protect Israel first and foremost and on this I see eye to eye with Elliot Jager

    And I think Bibi's timing is most unfortunate.....................I mean really. I know he wants to be Prime Minister, but not this way. This is not the time to play politics. And I expect much railing at me from my readers.

    Disengagement Blues - Elliot Jager
    With a heavy heart, I embrace Prime Minister Sharon's argument that the Jewish state must not rule over Gaza's 1 million hostile Palestinian Arabs in perpetuity; that Gush Katif is no longer a military asset; and that to salvage as much of Judea, Samaria - and Jerusalem - as possible, precious communities must be uprooted. Sharon claims that once the Gaza withdrawal is behind us there will be no "gestures" and no "progress" on the road map until the terrorism infrastructure is dismantled. If he holds firm, if the U.S. pro-Israel community unites behind this stance, Israel will be diplomatically better off than it is today. Disengagement allows Israel to consolidate its defensive lines. It demonstrates understanding of international public opinion, and stabilizes the home front. (Jerusalem Post)

    And the man in the arena?
    SHARON!
    "Israel is a Peace Seeking Country"

    "NO COMPROMISE
    NOT NOW
    NOT THE FUTURE
    ON OUR SECURITY"
    you may hate it, but it's a plan...........a defensible plan

    Sharon, I believe he  is going against everything he ever held dear,everything he has ever believed to make Israel safe. At the end of the day, this is his objective.I know at first (second, third) glance the disengagement is hideous, but it is a boots on the ground plan. It is a REALITY plan. Close ranks, close borders, and keep the Palis out - end of story. DEVELOP ALL THAT DESERT, the Negev. If not the Jews, then who?

     

    Look this is just my opinion..............

    Palis fire on Israeli Protesters, Kill Palistinian toddler

    and they killed their own kinder...........................you reap what you sow

    My Way reports:Annan_arafat_2

    SDEROT, Israel (AP) - Palestinians fired rockets Tuesday at a gathering of thousands of Israeli settlers protesting the upcoming Gaza withdrawal, but missed, killing instead a 3-year-old Palestinian boy and wounding nine other Palestinians in Gaza.

    Among the wounded were five children, aged 4 to 11, including four children of Hisham Abdel Razek, a senior official in the ruling Fatah party and a former Palestinian Cabinet minister. Abdel Razek's wife was also injured.

    The dead boy was identified as Yasser Adnan Ashkar, who was killed when one of the stray rockets hit his family's home in Beit Hanoun, northeast of Gaza City. His 11-year-old brother was in critical condition. Abdel Razek's family was visiting at the time, witnesses said.

    Now keep telling me it's about the Palis wanting their own land and not about the elimination of Israel.

    Conflicts of Interest - Martin Peretz
    Given the world's being so enthusiastically taken in by Arafat, given the forked tongues of the present Palestinian leadership, one issue for Israel is: Can the Palestinians be trusted? Frankly, it's hard to find many people who'd answer in the affirmative. News has trickled out about details of Condoleezza Rice's demands on Israel, which apparently include that it supply the PA with weapons and ammunition. And who exactly will guarantee that these will not fall into the hands of the legions of habitual terrorists who nestle in the PA's militias or that they won't simply be passed on to the pious murderers of Hamas and Islamic Jihad?
        The PA has so many times obliged itself to Bill Clinton, George Bush, and the Israelis to stop official incitement against Jews and Israel. But the most grotesque and genocide-provoking hatred for the Jewish people and their state continues to flood the official marketplace of what you might not want to call ideas. I've known this for years, and American journalists have known it for years, but it has gone largely unreported. It's not their kind of story because it ruins the story of Palestinian moderation, to which so many reporters, columnists, and editorialists are wed. (New Republic)

    Behind Israel's "Disengagement" [their quotes not mine]

    But Israel isn’t really disengaging from the Palestinians at all, not even in Gaza, where, if all goes to plan, there won’t be a single Israeli settlement by the end of the summer. Israel will still hold the keys to Gaza, control its borders, its airspace and access to the sea. Palestinians have long described the Gaza Strip as the world’s biggest prison. Disengagement won’t change that. The prison guards will just be manning the walls instead of walking the cellblock corridors.

    The September 2005 Atlantic Monthly magazine

    "In a Ruined Country: How Yasir Arafat destroyed Palestine."  Through interviewsArafat_osama_1 with numerous people who were close to Arafat or who had dealt with him for many years, the picture of Arafat that emerges is one of a man utterly committed to the eventual destruction of Israel (peace negotiations notwithstanding), but equally obsessed with amassing power for himself through incitement, intimidation, violence, chaos and corruption. Arafat's cronies also make clear that Arafat initiated and/or funded and was intimately involved in much of the terror against Israelis not only in the 60's and 70's, but also post-Oslo, in the 90's and 00's. Samuels also provides readers with what some might perceive to be troubling information about current Palestinian leaders such as Mahmoud Abbas and Mohammed Dahlan

    What We Can Do Instead Of Bombing Mecca

    Jihad Watch.org

    Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald offers some suggestions of what we can do to defend human rights and resist the jihad threat, in the wake of Congressman Tancredo's remarks:

    It would have been better to make the following point: during the Cold War, the Soviet rulers knew that if they did certain things, certain things would be done by NATO or the American government. And the knowledge of what might be done, would be done, in return, helped prevent the Soviet rulers from doing what they might otherwise have done.

    So it would be helpful to make suggestions as to what would constitute deterrence.Target_1 These might include, not destroying Mecca, which would cause maddened Muslims everywhere to attack and kill Infidels -- and the problem with Islam is that it contains many elements of a violent cult that cannot be wished away, or hidden any longer. Are maddened millions or tens of millions or hundreds of millions of inconsolable Muslims, for whom Mecca no longer exists, and so with nothing further to lose, what we wish to bring into being? No. But the idea of discussing possible means of deterrence, not of the determined suicide-bomber, but of all those who have helped to fund mosques and madrasas, or to supply the emotional and financial and intellectual support system (including the continued smooth practitioners of taqiyya-and-kitman in the West), and who can be threatened in all sorts of ways.

    More sober discussion of how, for example, points of entry and exit into Mecca, could systematically be reduced in number, or airfields used by pilgrims made unusable, is a different suggestion, one that has many advantages, in that it is an incremental response: first this quadrant is closed off, and now this one, and so on.

    It is now clear to Muslims in the West, or to some of them, that their assumption about continued Western appeasement, based on continued misunderstanding of Islam by Infidels was wrong. The EU's foreign policy is still in place, but Bat Ye'or's "Eurabia" is circulating -- even at the highest levels of the Pentagon. Eventually, terror, used as an instrument of Jihad, will alert enough Infidels to the permanent problem of Jihad, of all the instruments of Jihad, including that of demographic conquest and Da'wa, and lead inexorably to an understanding that the Muslims in their midst, allowed in by political elites who were either indifferent, or mesmerized by the Idols of the Age, those unexamined assumptions about how Everyone Wants the Same Thing and All Religions Are Alike. Those Muslims may be "moderate" or "immoderate," and the "moderation" may be real, or feigned, permanent or temporary, immune to, or susceptible to, being jettisoned whenever setbacks or depressive fits or any of the ills that flesh and spirit are heir to, may cause a "moderate" Muslim, or even a "Muslim-for-identification-purposes-only" Muslim, to throw off that "moderation" and morph in Jekyll-into-Hyde fashion, into someone ready to blame the Infidels. There have been quite a few examples of such outwardly "moderate" people changing their beliefs and hence their behavior, as a response not so much to political or geopolitical events, but to personal setbacks, emotional disarray. When the universe is viewed through the prism of Islam, it is the Infidels who always wear black.

    Discussion of measures that might truly curb, for example, the Saudi money that pours into the Western world, and funds mosques everywhere, all over that world, and madrasas all over the dar al-Islam, and that is furthermore used to buy an army of hirelings, non-Muslim apologists for islam, should be undertaken - out in the open so that Infidel publics can be made aware of the size of the problem.

    Deterrent measures, that could be undertaken without waiting in some cases for any further attacks (but further attacks will help to justify the more far-reaching among them) might include, but not be limited to:

     

    1) Seizure of Saudi-owned assets in the West, and sale of such assets to pay for the economic damage, including the cost of surveillance and other security measures, that are attributable to Saudi-funded mosques, madrasas, and propaganda all over the world.

    2) Seizure of other Arab-owned or Muslim-owned assets in the West, for the same reasons. There need not be any distinction made between property owned by governments and those who are deemed to be enemy nationals -- no such distinction was made during World War II.

    3) A complete ban on Muslim migration to the Western world (which needs to be undertaken in any case), and limits put on any contact between Muslims living in the West, who may already have obtained ciizenship and -- unless they are native-born converts -- their countries of origin.

    4) Careful review of how citizenship is obtained, and what oaths of loyalty are administered, and if those oaths can possibly have been meant by those whose sole loyalty, by the very tenets of their belief-system, can only be to Islam and the Community of Believers, the umma al-islamiyya.

    5) Government-sponsored centers to teach people about Islam outside of universities, which all over the Western world have been infiltrated, or rather captured by, apologists for Islam both Muslim and non-Muslim.

    The study of Arabic under teachers whom the Infidel governments will deliberately find among Arabic-speaking non-Muslims, chiefly from those populations most likely not to supply subtle apologists for Islam - Maronites, Copts, disaffected Berbers, Arabic-speaking Jews. A knowledge of Arabic is not required for an understanding of Islam 80% of the world's Muslims do not speak or read Arabic but have no difficulty knowing what Islam is all about. But it can be of help in studying the history of Jihad-conquest, and certainly it can be of help in debates with Muslims who accuse one of "not understanding Islam without a knowledge of Arabic." Nonsense, of course, but nonsense more convincingly refused if someone has studied Arabic.

    6) War-footing (i.e., Manhattan Project support) for solar and wind and nuclear energy projects, for conservation, and for mass transit, including that such as Amtrak which loses money, but should be cheerfully subsidized by an intelligent government bent, even hellbent, on diminishing OPEC oil revenues.

    7) An end to all outward and visible signs of rhetorical "respect" for Islam, including the studied refusal to mention "Islmaic terrorism" or "Muslim terrorism" which has gone on for too long. Use these adjectives; never let them go. Use the word "jihad." Stop all attempts at verbal escamotage, where the listener is left, puzzled, dissatisfied with the deliberate vagueness.

     

    8) End all access to Western education, not only for those Arabs and Muslims studying any kind of science, but in every area. Attempting the hopeless project of "educating them" out of their belief-system will not work. Many terrorists have lived in the West, seen the West, studied in the West, taught in the West. Dr. A. Q. Khan did "research" in the West - and we know the results of that research. Muslims in Western universities are dangerous to Infidel wellbeing, not only because of the women they marry and cause to convert (to the subsequent sorrow of many), but because they are, with the odd exception, likely to conduct Da'wa and promote the geopolitics of Islam. Past masters at taqiyya-and-kitman, they should be regarded as akin to enemy agents, promoting a belief-system that means Infidel political and social arrangements and assumptions no good.

    Condemning them to the solitary confinement of dar al-Islam will cause a concentration of minds.

    9) End all access to the Western world for the children of the ruling elites all over the Muslim world. Without this escape hatch, those rulers will have to begin to consider how to ameliorate things in their own countries.

    10) End the jizyah of Infidel aid to Muslim states, such as Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, and whatever the latest political instrument of the shock troops of the Jihad against Israel, the "Palestinians," may be called. Call attention to the $10 trillion that has already been recdeived by the Muslim members of OPEC in the last 1/3 century, and continue to advise those Pakistanis, Egyptians, Jordanians and "Palestinians" to ask for that aid no longer from the Infidels, who suddenly have to pay higher prices for oil and hundreds of billions more for security all over the Western world, but to those Arab and Muslim states that, not coincidentally, are receiving those hundreds of billions more in oil revenues each year.

    11) Keep the focus clearly on the belief-system of Islam and on Jihad. And after the next small terrorist attack on Infidels -- say, 10 killed - begin to legislate to make sure that some of the measures suggested above become not merely ideas but the law.

    12) Clean out the taxpayer-funded government radio and television stations of those who have so misled us about Islam over the past 20-30 years. Begin, possibly, by firing John Simpson, the deeply, even conspiratorially, anti-Israel and islamophilic head of the BBC World Affairs broadcasting, the same John Simpson (a close friend of Peter Hounam, whose conspiracy book about Israel is the kind of thing that antisemites love to flog) who described the Muslim bombers in London as "misguided criminals." That should have been enough to cause his discharge. Why wasn't it? What will it take for the long-suffering British license-payers to demand a change in the BBC coverage and, even before that, iin the personnel in charge of reporting on the Middle East and Islam? This domestic Lord Haw-Haw and Tokyo Rose business, where one need not even bother to turn the dial to Radio Berlin or Radio Tokyo to hear the sly propaganda, has to stop.

    These are things that can be done, should be done, long before suggestions about "bombing Mecca" need to be bruited about.

    Talk of attacking Mecca, instead of concentrating on more plausible suggestions (which do include limiting easy access to Mecca, something which the Saudis already do in limiting the number of visitors), is not likely to be helpful.

    Israeli Cabinet OKs Jerusalem Barrier
    AP via Yahoo! News Sun, 10 Jul 2005 7:38 AM PDT
    Israel's Cabinet on Sunday gave final approval to a Jerusalem separation barrier meant to stop suicide bombers, over strident Palestinian objections and U.S. misgivings because it will isolate thousands of Palestinians.

    JewKilling ok, Everything Else is Terror *SPIT*

    In the wake of the attacks, The (UK) Sun published a roundup of Islamic terrorism 'across the world over the last decade' ― complete with map. Guess which Mideast country that has absorbed hundreds of Islamist attacks during this period does not appear in the Sun's account?

    It seems that editors at The Sun don't consider the nearly 1000 Israeli civilian victims of Islamic terror worthy of mention as any one of the 'worst atrocities' for the past 12 years.

    Has someone told Bono that one Palestinian is worth 23 Africans?

    According to the G-8 Summit players, that seems to be the message that no one wants to admit.  But look at the numbers from this article on FOX News.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,161892,00.html 
    With a last-minute pledge from Japan, Blair won a key victory — a promise to boostDollar_sign_1 Africa aid to $50 billion annually by 2010, from the current $25 billion....
    G-8 members pledged up to $3 billion a year for three years, or up $9 billion total, much of it in the form of private investments, to help energize the Palestinian economy and create conditions more conducive to getting the Israeli-Palestinian peace process back on track.
    According to Microsoft Encarta, there are approximately 800 million Africans.  There are approximately 3 million Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza.  Keep those numbers in mind.
     
    The G-8 is agreeing to boost aid to Africa from $25 billion annually up to $50 billion annually by 2010.  That's five years from now before they reach their goal.  So they probably won't be getting more than than an average of $35 billion a year over the next 3 years.  That represents $44 a year per African or $131 per person over the next three years.  There are numerous conflicting estimates of African GDP, anywhere from $700 billion to $1.6 trillion.  Let's assume it to be $1 trillion a year.  That places African GDP/capita at $1250 a year.  So the Africans will be getting a 4% pay raise.  Wow.
     
    The Palestinians, however, got a much better deal.  Even though they have a so-called elected government that has yet to stop terrorist activity, the 3 million Palestinians in so-called "Palestine" will receive $3 billion a year over the next three years.  That works out to $1000 of yearly aid to each Palestinian or $3000 over the next three years for each Palestinian.  Mind you that the Palestinian GDP per capita is only about $1000 to start with, so the G-8 is promising to immediately double the Palestinian GDP per capita.  Go ahead, check the math.

    Aid as % of GDP/Capita

     

    4%

     

    100%

     
     
    So the Palestinians will get 23 times the financial aid as the typical African.  It makes you wonder how these G-8 Leaders can stand there at Gleneagles and say they are against terrorism and sign on to this agreement.  The Palestinians have done nothing but terrorize and yet we keep rewarding them.  This agreement is yet another stunning embarrassment for "Soft Power" diplomacy.

    'My dream was to be a suicide bomber. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews. Yes, even babies'

    This is what we are up against, this is what we are attempting to reason with, negotiate with, "make whole"....................it aint good. I ran a piece on this human filth earlier in the week focusing on how the enemy exploits the kindness of Israeli society to commit acts of terror, and how that startling revelation is virtually ignored by the MSM.
    In this article meet the lowlife behind the evil............

    'My dream was to be a suicide bomber. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews. Yes, even babies'
    By Manuela Dviri in Tel Aviv

    When a soldier asked her to remove her long, dark cloak, she turned to face him. All her movements were taped by the military surveillance camera at the checkpoint: calmly, deliberately, she took off her clothing, item by item, until she looked like any normal young woman in T-shirt and jeans. It was then that she tried to set off the belt containing 20lb of explosives hidden beneath her trousers. To her horror, she did not succeed. Desperate, she clawed at her face, screaming. She was still alive, she realised. She had failed her martyrdom mission.

    That afternoon, on June 21, the 21-year-old, Wafa Samir al-Biss, was brought before the press by Israeli intelligence. Her neck and hands were covered with scars caused by a kitchen gas explosion six months earlier. The ugly scars - which had been treated in a hospital in Israel - had probably helped turn her into the perfect would-be huriia (virgin), the ideal martyr, since they would make it difficult for her to find a suitable husband.

    According to the Israeli doctor who attended Wafa at the Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, she received blood transfusions during her treatment. "I told her, with a laugh, that now she has Jewish blood in her veins," he said, adding sadly that she had "seemed so nice - we got a lovely thank you letter from her family.''

    Wafa had been sent on her mission by the Abu Rish Brigade, the small militant faction with links to Fatah. She did not, she said later, regret it, though she stressed that her decision had had nothing to do with her scarring. "My dream was to be a martyr. I believe in death," she said. "Today I wanted to blow myself up in a hospital, maybe even in the one in which I was treated. But since lots of Arabs come to be treated there, I decided I would go to another, maybe the Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews …''

Mofaz stressed the need for the Palestinians to disarm all fugitives and ensure they sign a pledge to refrain from terrorist activities.
        Palestinian officials said on Thursday that hundreds of Nablus gunmen would move into the Palestinian police forces as a way of bringing them under control. The officials said that under the tentative agreement, 700 gunmen would be absorbed into the security services. However, Palestinians admitted that even with the Nablus accord, large-scale collection of weapons is not on the horizon. (Jerusalem Post)

    The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same and Abused Children become Bloody Murderers

    PA Television Continues to Teach Children to Become "Martyrs" Arab Press

    The Palestinian Authority continues to promote “martyrdom” in its state-produced children’s television programs, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

    Shahada, or death for Allah, has been the backbone of the Palestinian Authority's messages to its children since the start of the terror war in September 2000," states the Wednesday report. "Although the number of these messages has been reduced in recent months, the promotion and glorification of child Shahada continues nonetheless, as seen this week on PA TV.”

    The report cites a broadcast of a PA TV series named “The Palestinian Diaspora.” The series is presented daily as a factual portrayal of history. Though throughout the series, Israel's creation and ongoing existence have been presented as injustices that must be fought, this past week’s episode honed in on the issue of child martyrdom.

    Click here to view the clip from the show

    This week’s episode, set in 1956, shows Arabs mourning Israel's existence. A 12-year-old refugee is shown reading his uncle a story he wrote.

    “The scene has two explicit messages,” write PMW’s Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook. “[They are:] A child should be willing and anxious to fight and die in order to destroy Israel, [and that] Arab 'refugees' can never resettle, but must 'return' to Israel.”

    An excerpt from the clip, broadcast on PA TV on June 16:

    [The scene opens with the 12-year-old boy's friend writing, "I shall return" over a map he drew of “Palestine,” covering all of Israel]

    12-year-old Arab Boy: "His mother cried and said, 'My son! Swear to me! Don't leave me alone…! I'm afraid you will be killed.'

    "Her son said to her, 'Don't cry, my mother! Let me go and fight for the sake of the homeland. The enemy stole our beautiful land… We all must fight in order to redeem the lost paradise… We lived in joy and happiness, until the foreign enemy [Israel] came and expelled us from our land, and we became refugees in tents. But we will return, by Allah's will!'

    "His mother told him, 'Farewell, my son. Allah be with you.' He kissed her and left to fight, and fought until he became a Shahid [martyr for Allah]."

    The Boy’s Uncle: "...Let me ask you, if they come and tell you, ‘we will give you a very big house, a car, land and money, just resettle!’ Would you agree?"

    Boy: "No!"

    Uncle: "...the homeland is greater than individual possessions."

    The Back Story should be the FRONT story: Palestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment

    Aryeh sends me this link (excellent blog  btw, on why Abu Mazzan should be arrested).
    and then Aryeh assumes correctly:

    I assume that you've  heard, but in case you haven't, a 21 year old youngFailed_bomber Palestinian woman who was being admitted to Israel so that Israeli doctors could treat her for serious burns all over her body (as a result of a home accident), decided to repay their generosity by bringing the Israeli army 20 pounds of ammunition. She strapped this gift to her body and intended to blow herself up with as many civilians as she could.

    Now she's under arrest which is a shame for her becuase if she had succeeded in blowing herself up there'd no doubt be a street sign bearing her name andmaybe even a soccer team named after her.  By now Amnesty International would be condemning the barbaric Israelis who could allow a young woman to be driven tothis ghoulish behavior.  After all, it is our fault,right

    Female Palestinian Suicide Bomber Planned to Blow Up Israeli Hospital

  • Wafa al-Bas, 21, arrested on Monday at a Gaza checkpoint, planned to blow herself up in an Israeli hospital. Israeli officials said Bas was burned in a cooking accident five months ago and had received treatment on humanitarian grounds at Beersheba hospital. She was making another trip for follow-up treatment but planned to blow herself up instead. In an interview shown on Israeli television, Bas said her "dream was to be a martyr." She said she was recruited by the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - an off-shoot of Palestinian leader Abbas' Fatah faction. Later, she pleaded for mercy because she "didn't kill anyone."  (BBC)
        The Shin Bet received a tip that Fatah was planning to send Bas on a suicide mission via one of the Gaza Strip crossings. Israel gave the PA and Chairman Mahmoud Abbas detailed information of the plan, but the PA did nothing. (Ha'aretz)
        Security forces were alerted when the biometric screener at the terminal crossing revealed that Bas was wearing 10 kilograms of explosives. She then attempted several times to detonate the explosives but failed. She said she had intended to blow up in a "crowded area in the hospital." A senior Israeli security official pointed out that human rights groups have criticized Israel in the past for carrying out inspections on Palestinians requiring medical treatment in Israel. (Jerusalem Post)
        See also Palestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment (Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
  • This is the real news. The ignored, swept under the bloody rug news. The Amnesty International, UN, Eyrabia, calling Israelis Nazis, news. The real story for you isPalestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment.

    Please for a moment..............sit back, close your eyes inhale through your nostrils and think about this  irrefutable truth. And then think about what you read in the papers and see on the alphabets (abc,cBS, commienewsnetwork etc.)

    Palestinian Gunman Fires on Palestinian Prime Minister - Eric SilverAbbas20harry_1
    A Palestinian gunman opened fire for two minutes Wednesday with an M-16 automatic rifle on a sports club in Balata near the West Bank town of Nablus where Ahmad Qurei, the Palestinian prime minister, was holding a meeting. As Qurei was beating a hasty retreat in his official car, an explosion was heard about 300 meters away. The prime minister had come to appeal for a return to law and order.
        The gunman, Mahmoud Hatib, a 21-year-old member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, affiliated with the mainstream al-Fatah movement, was recently released from an Israeli jail.

    It was only a matter of time...blame the Jooos

    It had to happen right?
    from my peops over at Honest reporting:

    In the wake of Newsweek's now-retracted Guantanamo Bay Koran toilet abuse story, Palestinian prisoners have floated their own version to the western press.

    On June 7, The Scotsman headlined: 'Israeli Soldiers 'Desecrated Koran During Riot''. Reports on this unfounded claim from Israel's Megiddo prison (including these Associated Press and Reuters versions) included a refutation from the Israeli Prisons Authority, but the media-fueled rumors were enough to spark violent protests and public burnings of American and Israeli flags in faraway Muslim communities.

    And now, this:

    Cancerjuice2

    This rehashing of an ancient anti-Semitic blood libel appeared prominently on GoogleNews.

    Throughout the Arafat years, Palestinian spokespersons fed similar items to the western press, such as claims Israel deployed radioactive uranium against Palestinian protestors, and Suha Arafat's accusation in the presence of Hillary Clinton (pictured) that the IDF made 'extensive use of poisonous gas... which has led to an increase in cancer cases among women and children.'

    A senior Israeli official said the cancer juice case reminds him of 'the same types of lies Yasser Arafat used to spread.' As documented in a JCPA report, those included accusations that Israel disseminated bubble gum that sterilized Palestinian girls and sent AIDS-infected prostitutes to infect Palestinian men.

    We understand that Google uses an automated algorithm to filter news search results, but as HR has repeatedly indicated, this system is deeply flawed and lends itself to promulgating such absurd propaganda.

    Comments to GoogleNews: news-feedback@google.com

    this is only the beginning, believe me. Once they saw how successful the left wing media in America and worldwide aided and abetted the enemy, nothing will stop this.

    Palestinian Authority "Won't Disarm Gunmen until Occupation Ends" by Khaled Abu Toameh
    Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Nasser al-Kidwa (pictured, right) declared on Saturday that the PA had no intention of disarming Palestinian militias as demanded by the road map. Kidwa, a nephew of Yasser Arafat, said the Palestinian groups had the right to keep their weapons as long as the occupation continued. "Using arms under occupation is legal," he explained. Kidwa's statements stand in sharp contrast to promises made by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to confiscate "illegal" weapons from Palestinian groups and individuals. (Jerusalem Post)

    Palestinians aid Iraqi terrorists

    Rockets, explosives improvements shared with U.S. enemy

    Israeli military intelligence is collecting new information on the development of Palestinian weapon systems dubbed "the new age of Qassam rockets."

    Various Palestinian groups, including the Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Islamic Jihad, The Islamic Movement – Hamas and the Tanzim, have improved the range of their Qassam surface-to-surface rockets and have developed special anti-armor explosive charges.

    Information about these developments was caught on the Internet including messages sent to jihadists in Iraq on how to destroy Abrams tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles and other U.S.-made armored personnel carriers.

    Some of the information comes from jihad supporters in Europe, predominantly in the U.K., but also from Islamic blog operators in North America.

    Palestinians Fire Rockets at South Israel

    JERUSALEM - Palestinians fired three Qassam rockets at southern Israel on Tuesday, hitting one home, while Israeli soldiers traded fire with a Palestinian fugitive holed up in a house in the northern West Bank, the Israeli army said.

    The violence came a day after Palestinians and Israeli police scuffled at a contentious holy site in Jerusalem, which has been a flashpoint during the conflict.
    [I did a post on this ARAB STONE JEWS]

    Hamas militants claimed responsibility for the rocket attack on the Israeli city of Sderot. No injuries were reported.

    Hamas said the attack was retaliation for a visit by Jews on Monday to the Jerusalem holy site that was home to the biblical Jewish Temples and to the Al-Aqsa Mosque, Islam's third-holiest shrine. A confrontation broke out when Muslim worshippers threw stones at the Jewish visitors and Israeli police responded with stun grenades.

    ARABS STONE JEWS

    *SPIT* These stories make me sick.......and the lucid, pragmatic manner in which the media delivers them is even more perverse As opposed to the deafening shrill ravings of an unhinged media reporting on Israel (remember Jenin, 23 soldiers dead, 53 Palis and the Israelis would not use air cover so that they might avoid civilian casualites -ugh) Taking the moral highground is one thing, sacrificing even one Jewish life is too much (particularly when it's all pali propaganda anyway).

    Temple Mount: Arabs stone police, JewsStoning2

    In a new burst of violence, several hundred Arabs pelted police and Jewish visitors with stones on the Temple Mount Monday, lightly injuring two Jewish visitors and a police officer, as the nation marked Jerusalem Day and the reunification of the capital thirty-eight years ago.

    The violence broke out at 9:15 a.m. as a small group of Jewish visitors who were touring the ancient compound accompanied by police came under a hail of stones.

    and Bush is making nice with Hamas? Please tell me its an end run tactic, please tell me it is part of some grand strategy to take Hamas and Hizbollah down...........anything else is incomprehensible
    Reluctant U.S. Shows Signs of Shift on Hamas - Adam Entous
    The Bush administration is showing signs of easing its hard-line approach toward Hamas, in response to the militant group's rising political clout in the Palestinian territories and appeals for flexibility from European allies, officials and diplomats said. The White House acceded to Hamas running candidates in Palestinian elections, even though the group has refused to disarm and Washington lists it as a major terrorist organization. Senior administration officials said they may be open to contacts with some of Hamas's political affiliates, and would not rule out dealings with the group if it gave up its weapons and ended violence.
        The White House said President Bush has not changed his view that Hamas is a terrorist group that must be disarmed. "We're not acquiescing," a senior administration official said. "We do not deal with...terrorists." But the official added: "How do you pursue this without limiting democratic choices?" Another senior official called it a shift in emphasis, not policy. It could be reversed if Hamas-sponsored violence escalated, experts said. (Reuters)

    Israel Works to Prevent PA Execution of 50 Collaborators - Yuval Yoaz
    Israel has gone to great lengths to prevent the PA from executing approximately 50 Palestinians convicted of collaborating with Israel. Israel approached U.S. Ambassador Dan Kurtzer on the matter, and went ahead with the release of Palestinian security prisoners last Thursday only after the PA said it did not intend to carry out the sentences.

    We Have Eyes, But Will Not See

    I smell terror
    I know I know, I am such a KILLJOY. Everyone is chit chatting PEACE PEACE PEACE PEACE PEACE PEACE like chickens in a chicken coop but so many developments point to just the opposite:

    Syria Tests Scud Missiles

    "Syria test-fired three Scud missiles last Friday, including one that broke up over Turkish territory and showered missile parts down onto unsuspecting Turkish farmers, Israeli military officials revealed Thursday. Syria test-fired three Scud missiles  late last week, reinforcing Israeli worries about Damascus' ability to deliver a missile-borne chemical attack against Israeli civilian targets, Israeli military officials said Friday. " The New York Times reports. In the Cato Policy Analysis "The Syria Accountability Act: Taking the Wrong Road to Damascus," United Press International foreign editor Claude Salhani writes: "The Syria Accountability Act leads in the wrong direction in the fight against anti-American terrorists by escalating an unnecessary conflict in the Middle East that will only strengthen those who wish us harm.

  • Israeli military officials said they interpreted the launchings as a gesture of defiance to the U.S. and UN by Syrian president Bashir al-Assad. "This is really putting your fingers in the eyes of the Americans, saying, 'I'm not dancing to your flute,'" a senior Israeli military official said. "The tests are probably needed for the missile project, but this is Bashir taking a risk here and sending a message."
        Syria harbors the leadership of the Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad and helps them, as well as the Iranian-sponsored Hizballah, with money, arms, and sponsorship. "The message from Syria to the Palestinians is not to stop shooting," a senior Israeli official said. (New York Times)
  • Kurdish Cleric Murdered in Syria a Moderate Voice of Change - Paul Koring
    The lifeless body of outspoken Kurdish cleric Sheik Machouk Alkhaznawi was returned to his family in Syria on Wednesday, three weeks after he went missing. Amnesty International and members of the Kurdish Democratic Party said he was killed by authorities, citing evidence of torture on the body. Days before his disappearance, Globe and Mail correspondent Paul Koring interviewed Alkhaznawi in Damascus for a story about Syria's newly emboldened political dissidents. "Either the regime will change, or the regime must go," he said in the interview. Engaging, passionate, inspiring, and funny, Alkhaznawi was every despot's worst nightmare. He was a champion of tolerance, respect between Arabs and Kurds, and the compatibility of democracy and Islam. (Globe and Mail-Canada)
  • U.S. Calls Killing of Anti-Syrian Lebanese Journalist "Heinous"
    The U.S. condemned the killing of a prominent anti-Syrian Lebanese journalist in a bombing Thursday in Beirut. "It's a heinous act," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of the killing of Samir Kassir, 45, an editorial writer for the Lebanese An-Nahar newspaper and a frequent commentator on Alhurra, the U.S.-funded, Arabic-language satellite television channel. Kassir helped found Lebanon's Democratic Left movement, a main force behind the protests that led to Syria's withdrawal from Lebanon. (Bloomberg)

    At the scene of Samir Kassir's assassination, angry crowds accused Lebanon's pro-Syrian regime of murdering opposition journalist Samir Kassir. "Assassins! Agents of Syrian corruption! Who will be the next victim?" they yelled. Kassir, who had an eloquent way with words that made him one of the widest-read writers in Lebanon, authored countless fiery editorials against Syria's tutelage over Lebanon during his lifetime.

  • According to 'The Oslo Syndrome'
    By Center for Security Policy
    FrontPageMagazine.com
    Terrorist organizations are not being dismantled by Abbas. Instead, groups like Hamas with the avowed mission of destroying Israel are ascendant. They are winning local elections and taking full advantage of the "hudna" (temporary suspension of hostilities) to rebuild their offensive capabilities against Israel.

    Hamas and other terrorists are being integrated into Palestinian security forces, receiving valuable training and even arms from American and European personnel. In addition, burgeoning quantities of ever-more powerful weapons are being smuggled into Gaza from Egypt.

    Meanwhile, Palestinians are being encouraged by official imams whose sermons are broadcast on Abbas-controlled media to kill Jews and destroy America. For example, less than two weeks before Mr. Bush welcomed Abu Mazen to the White House, Sheik Ibrahim Mudeiris claimed on Palestinian Authority TV that history showed the torture, exile and murder of Jews to be legitimate and the Muslim conquest of the United States inevitable.

    If the evidence is so clear that the Palestinian state Abu Mazen is a-building will be but a new state-sponsor of terror, how could President Bush - who in June 2002 rejected that prospect and has devoted his presidency to eliminating such sponsors - possibly be turning a blind eye to the facts on the ground? How could he be insisting that Israel make still further territorial and political concessions, including over Jerusalem, let alone be handing over directly to the Palestinian Authority $50 million in U.S. taxpayers' funds?

    Student: "Professor Wiesel, in your book, Night, you have a character, Moishe the Beetle, who comes back to warn the people. Do you see yourself now as you saw Moishe the Beetle, as a kind of messenger with a warning for all of us to listen to?"

    Elie Wiesel: "In a way, yes. But not only I, really. I think all those who went through that experience could say that they are messengers. We are all messengers to each other. If not, there would be no possibility for human beings to speak; there would be no possibility to hope. It would be impossible for any one of us to think of tomorrow. Tomorrow will be the year 2000. When I think of that year, I’m seized with anguish. What will happen then to our memories? What will happen when the last messenger will have given his or her message and will no longer be here? That is where you come into the picture, you young people. We have a tremendous faith in you—justified".

    NATO gives Palestinians observer status

    Officials in Jerusalem acted coolly to the announcement by NATO that it was granting observer status to the Palestinians. [cooly? they ought to be frothing at the mouth- Atlas]

    NATO made the announcement on Tuesday during a meeting of the Parliamentary assembly in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

    This is a very important decision as for many years European countries have only heard the Israeli voice in these groupings. [oh really, since when did Eurabia give a rat's ass about "what Israel has been saying"? They have only taken the Pali side, antisemeitism anyone?-Atlas]For peace to become a reality and agreements to be fully implemented, we need to be able to tell our side of the story too," said Hassan Khreisheh, the first deputy speaker of the Palestinian body and one of the two Palestinian delegates.

    According to a NATO press release, MK Joseph Paritzky welcomed the involvement of the Palestinians and other Arab states in the work of the Assembly, which is made up of 248 delegates from 26 member countries.

    "This shows that we belong to the parliament of the most important and biggest defense union of the world, and the decision is highly appreciated," Paritzky was quoted as saying.

    Today's Daily Diet of AntiSemitism Carefully Prepared by Al-Jizz

    How is this considered a "news organization"? Every story, every word for that matter, is dripping with jewhatred. They are channeling Goebbels. Imagine a daily diet of such vitriole, day in, day out, week in week out, year in year out.  They do the same thing with America, not because of Israel but because of everything America is  and represents.
    Israel  suffers from the same hate-America crowd.  Being America's close ally comes with a price.
    But do not for one moment misunderstand the enemy. With or without the Jews, we are all infidels which is why the Arab radical islamic government is killing muslims in Sudan (the moderates are being slaughtered), the Chistians and anyone that does not subjugate themselves to radical islam. And there is no color barrier, black on black, Arab on Arab............Israel is the canary in the coalmine

    Activists to protest pro-Israel conference

    A coalition of U.S. and international groups plan a peaceful demonstration against Israel next week when a pro-Israeli group holds its annual conference in Washington.

    The coalition includes prominent congressmen such as Republican Paul Findley who’s said that Washington’s strategic relations with Israel discredits the U.S.’ image and would drag it into unnecessary wars with Iran and Syria.

    Among the groups supporting the May 23 protest is the American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee and the Middle East Crisis Committee and Council for the National Interest.

    Bethlehem Christians Worry About Islamic Takeover - Julie Stahl
    Christians in Bethlehem are concerned that their city may slowly become an Islamic stronghold following recent municipal elections in which members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, both on the State Department's list of terrorist organizations, took a number of seats. "Slowly, slowly they will take over [and] have Palestine as an Islamic state," said one Christian leader in Bethlehem. Thirty years ago no one had ever heard of Hamas; now more than 30% of the city is Hamas and it's growing every year, he said. More than 5,000 Christians have left the city during the last few years, primarily for economic reasons, while the so-called Christian countries in the West gave all their money to the PA, which was like giving it to the mafia, said the Bethlehem Christian.

    Cut and Paste and Send this letter to President@Whitehouse.gov

    Dear Mr. President:Mail_quaint

    The PLO Authority, which you have provided over 1 billion dollars in aid
    during your administration, has repeatedly and publicly vowed not to lift
    a finger against the murderers they nurture.  They have kept their word.

    Shafik Aadel Mustafa A-Aani, the terrorist ringleader of the suicide
    bombing of the Stage Cafe on Feb. 25, was recently released by the PLO
    Authority, who then went on to kill a 20 year old Israeli this week.  Also
    this week, Arab terrorists carrying a Kassam rocket in the back seat of
    their car in Gaza, were initially arrested, and then released this by the
    PLO, leaving them free to launch their next terror attack (Reuters, May 3:
    "Palestinian Interior Ministry spokesman Toufiq Abu Khoussa said the three
    were in a car, en route to fire rockets and were let go on Tuesday
    following intervention by an Egyptian official in Gaza".)  Also this week,
    the Arab terrorist murderer of Minister Ze'evi was officially permitted by
    the PLO Authority to run for high political office in their upcoming
    elections (YNET news, May 1:  Ahmed Saadat, jailed in Jericho for role in
    murder of late Tourism Minister Rehavam Zeevi, says candidacy will
    underscore "right of prisoners to stand for office")

    Mr. President, in this troubled world with the USA facing increasingly
    dangerous threats from many quarters, including the growing nuclear threat
    from North Korea and Iran, it is both wrong and foolish to abandon our
    Israeli friends and to subsidize our Arab enemies.

    The PLO has not stopped their efforts to participate in the international
    Arab terror campaign, of which America's suffering on 9/11 was a part.  It
    is therefore long past time for you to end your financial and political
    support for the PLO Authority.  Instead please support Israel's moral,
    historical, strategic and Biblical rights for full sovereignty in Judea,
    Samaria, Jerusalem, the Golan Heights and Gaza.  That way the development
    of another Arab terrorist state that will threaten America will be
    prevented.

    Sincerely,

    Holy Arafish! Fatah beats Hamas!

    Fatah beats out a strong Hamas in municipal elections
    By Arnon Regular, Haaretz

    Correspondent and Agencies Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' ruling Fatah movement narrowly fended off a strong challenge by the Islamic militant group Hamas in local elections in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on Friday, with Fatah winning 56 percent and Hamas 33 percent of the vote. The corruption-tainted Fatah had feared defeat in Thursday's elections, but unofficial election results indicated the party won in 45 of 84 communities. However, Hamas established itself as a major political player, winning 23 of the contests, including in the three biggest towns - Qalqilyah, Rafah and Beit Lahia. Final official results are expected only Sunday but Qalqilyah's next mayor will likely be from Hamas.

    For me the most telling pull quote was the following;

    In the remaining 16 communities, neither side won a clear majority, with independents or smaller factions getting the most votes.

    obviously there is plenty of fear out there. Which to choose? Fatah, the corrupt violent party of Ararat or Cold  Blooded murders Hamas?........decisions, decisios..........

    LYNCH AVERTED; IDF COMMANDER SUSPENDED!

    This is where Israel and I part company. This Commander was suspended for saving his men from being lynched? Me? I say a parade down 5th Avenue is not good enough for him.

    Near-Lynch Averted, IDF Commander Suspended
    Arutz

    An IDF  commander and his five troops were almost lynched by an angry Arab mob Wednesday. The commander has been temporarily suspended, after using live bullets to save his and his troops' lives.

    Near-Lynch Averted, IDF Commander Suspended
    Three hundred PA Arabs attacked six IDF soldiers guarding equipment near Highway 443, one of the two main Jerusalem-Tel Aviv highway. The equipment is being used in building the separation fence. Two Arabs were killed in the confrontation.Arabriots_3

    The mob of Arabs came from the village of Beit Likiya, southwest of Ramallah, and approached the soldiers near the Jewish town of Mevo Horon. The Arabs began by hurling large rocks at the soldiers, who responded by using non-lethal means to disperse the riot.

    The soldiers fired tear-gas and then began using rubber bullets, but the crowd kept throwing rocks, wounding the force’s commanding officer. The commander then fired into the air, but when the attackers still failed to disperse, the commander fired at one of the rioters’ legs and then at a rocky area near the crowd. Three Arabs were wounded and two later died.

    Central Command O.C. Maj.-Gen. Ya'ir Naveh announced the suspension of the commander in charge of the force from operational activity until the full inquiry into the incident is completed.

    “The company commander was suspended in light of errors both in the way he conducted himself and in the way in which he commanded his force,” an IDF spokesman said. Asked to elaborate, an IDF spokesperson told Arutz-7 that he may have fired too quickly, and that he should have been aware that shooting at rocks would cause the bullets to ricochet unpredictably. She acknowledged, however, that the soldiers "faced a very scary situation" and that the commander would likely be reinstated after the investigation is completed.

    "The Hell of Israel Is Better than the Paradise of Arafat" - Daniel Pipes

    If  you havent sunk your teeth into Daniel Pipes' Column this week GO NOW! There is something utterly genius in Pipe's observations. Pipes is our boots on the ground. He is everywhere (but hopefully does not suffer from the G-d complex). His take on the Arabs that live in Israel that WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH PA RULE OR GOVERNANCE is the "emmis" on the street. It says it all.........Kofi are you listening, or counting the indictments you seemlessly avoid?

    Pipes work is long but extraordinary....get through it. His rational, disciplined process of thought and scrupulously logical deliberation is breathtaking

    "The Hell of Israel Is Better than the Paradise of Arafat"

    by Daniel Pipes
    Middle East Quarterly
    Spring 2005

    In the Palestinian Authority's (PA) elections that took place in January 2005, a significant percentage of Arab Jerusalemites stayed away from the polls out of concern that voting in them might jeopardize their status as residents of Israel. For example, the Associated Press quoted one Rabi Mimi, a 28-year-old truck driver, who expressed strong support for Mahmoud Abbas but said he had no plans to vote: "I can't vote. I'm afraid I'll get into trouble. I don't want to take any chances." Asked if he would vote, a taxi driver responded with indignation, "Are you kidding? To bring a corrupt [Palestinian] Authority here. This is just what we are missing."

    This reluctance—as well as administrative incompetence—helped explain why, in the words of the Jerusalem Post, "at several balloting locations in the city [of Jerusalem], there were more foreign election observers, journalists, and police forces out than voters." It also explains why, in the previous PA election in 1996, a mere 10 percent of Jerusalem's eligible population voted, far lower than the proportions elsewhere.

    At first blush surprising, the worry about jeopardizing Israeli residency turns out to be widespread among the Palestinians in Israel. When given a choice of living under Zionist or Palestinian rule, they decidedly prefer the former. More than that, there is a body of pro-Israel sentiments from which to draw. No opinion surveys cover this delicate subject, but a substantial record of statements and actions suggest that, despite their anti-Zionist swagger, Israel's most fervid enemies do perceive its political virtues. Even Palestinian leaders, between their fulminations, sometimes let down their guard and acknowledge Israel's virtues. This undercurrent of Palestinian love of Zion has hopeful and potentially significant implications.

    Pro-Israel expressions fall into two main categories: preferring to remain under Israel rule and praising Israel as better than Arab regimes.

    No Thank You, Palestinian Authority

    Palestinians already living in Israel, especially in Jerusalem and the "Galilee Triangle" area, tell, sometimes volubly, how they prefer to remain in Israel.

    Jerusalem. In mid-2000, when it appeared that some Arab-majority parts of Jerusalem would be transferred to Palestinian Authority control, Muslim Jerusalemites expressed less than delight at the prospect. Peering over at Arafat's PA, they saw power monopolized by domineering and corrupt autocrats, a thug-like police force, and a stagnant economy. Arafat's bloated, nonsensical claims ("We are the one true democratic oasis in the Arab region") only exacerbated their apprehensions.

    ‘Abd ar-Razzaq ‘Abid of Jerusalem's Silwan neighborhood pointed dubiously to "what's happening in Ramallah, Hebron, and the Gaza Strip" and asked if the residents there were well off. A doctor applying for Israeli papers explained:

    The whole world seems to be talking about the future of the Arabs of Jerusalem, but no one has bothered asking us. The international community and the Israeli Left seem to take it for granted that we want to live under Mr. Arafat's control. We don't. Most of us despise Mr. Arafat and the cronies around him, and we want to stay in Israel. At least here I can speak my mind freely without being dumped in prison, as well as having a chance to earn an honest day's wage.

    In the colorful words of one Jerusalem resident, "The hell of Israel is better than the paradise of Arafat. We know Israeli rule stinks, but sometimes we feel like Palestinian rule would be worse."

    The director of the Bayt Hanina community council in northern Jerusalem, Husam Watad, found that the prospect of finding themselves living under Arafat's control had people "in a panic. More than 50 percent of east Jerusalem residents live below the poverty line, and you can imagine how the situation would look if residents did not receive [Israeli] National Insurance Institute payments." In the view of Fadal Tahabub, a member of the Palestinian National Council, an estimated 70 percent of the 200,000 Arab residents of Jerusalem preferred to remain under Israeli sovereignty. A social worker living in Ras al-‘Amud, one of the areas possibly falling under PA control, said: "If a secret poll was conducted, I am sure an overwhelming majority of Jerusalem Arabs would say they would prefer to stay in Israel."

    Indeed, precisely when Palestinian rule seemed most likely in 2000, the Israeli Interior Ministry reported a substantial increase in citizenship applications from Arabs in eastern Jerusalem. A Jerusalem city councilor, Roni Aloni, heard from many Arab residents about their not wanting to live under PA control. "They tell me—we are not like Gaza or the West Bank. We hold Israeli IDs. We are used to a higher standard of living. Even if Israeli rule is not so good, it is still better than that of the PA." Shalom Goldstein, an adviser on Arab affairs to the Jerusalem mayor, found likewise: "People look at what is happening inside the Palestinian-controlled areas today and say to themselves, ‘Thank God we have Israeli ID cards.' In fact, most of the Arabs in the city prefer to live under Israeli rule than under a corrupt and tyrannical regime like Yasser Arafat's."

    Pali's Firearm Hidden in His Younger Sister's Underwear

    TEACH KIDS PEACE

    Honest Reporting: This week, IDF soldiers searching for a wanted terrorist in a West Bank house discovered a girl hiding a gun in her underwear, YNet reports. The soldiers in the Balata refugee camp, a terrorist hotbed, found the gunman inside his home and ordered him to surrender his weapon. He refused, claiming he didn't have one. After questioning, they found the man's firearm was hidden in his younger sister's underwear.

    And earlier this week, a 15-year-old Palestinian boy was arrested near Nablus after being discovered wearing five pipe bombs strapped to his body. The boy aroused suspicions by wearing a heavy jacket on a hot day.

    HonestReporting has repeatedly critiqued the media's negligence in failing to report the indoctrination of Palestinian youngsters toward violence, and the growing culture of hate against Israel and the United States.

    Now, in a pro-active effort to challenge this human rights abuse, HonestReporting partnered in launching a new project that we're proud to introduce at this time ― Teach Kids Peace. Please take a moment to view the powerful 90-second introductory video by clicking on the graphic below, and visit TeachKidsPeace.org for news updates and alerts for activists.

    Kill a Jew, get a Home!

    This is hard to imagine happening but it is happening. It is the policy of every Demcratic nation state that there be no negotiating,  no doing business with terrorists. Isn't that what Condi said yesterday  exactly to the word  regarding the American contractor kidnapped in Iraq? And yet it is the US pressuring Israel -- " under the auspices of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the World Bank indicated that it intends to assume the assets of those Jews whom the Israeli government intends to expel from teir homes and farms in Katif and Samaria" . The bank subsequently intends to hand over these assets to senior Palestinian Authority security official Muhammad Dahlan as reported in FrontPagemag.com

    Kill a Jew, Get His House
    By David Bedein

    No democratic state should ever do business with terrorists, let alone those who would target aBlood_money_1 school buses. But Israel, under pressure from the United States, may be forced to do just that.

    In talks that took place this past week in Aspen, Colorado , under the auspices of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the World Bank indicated that it intends to assume the assets of those Jews whom the Israeli government intends to expel from their homes and farms in Katif and Samaria the banksubsequently intends to hand over these assets to senior Palestinian Authority security official Muhammad Dahlan. There is no requirement that Dahlan and others who receive these assets have no past involvement with terrorism.

    Yet this runs counter to the government of Israe’s decision of June 6 2004, in clause 7 of the plan put forward by Ariel Sharon. The clause states: in clause 7 of the plan put forward by Ariel Sharon. The clause states:


    The State of Israel will aspire to transfer other facilities, including industrial, commercial and agricultural ones, to a third, international party which will put them to use for the benefit of the Palestinian population that is not involved in terror.

    However, in a June 2004 monograph prepared by the World Bank for the government of Israel and the PLO, entitled “Disengagement, the Palestinian Economy and the settlements and issued by The World Bank,” and signed by then-World Bank president James Wolfenson, there is a detailed program for the transfer of all Jewish assets to the Palestinian authority. In this document there is no prerequisite that those who receive the assets have no involvement with terror. The World Bank simply eliminated the phrase "not involved in terror" and explained that "the State of Israel will aspire to transfer other structures, such as industrial and agricultural facilities, to an international third party that will use them for the benefit of the Palestinian population." In other words, the World Bank clearly intends to hand over assets without any anti-terror clause.


    Significantly, the man to whom the World Bank intends to hand over those assets, Muhammad Dahlan, is defined by the government of
    Israel as a terrorist. In a June, 2002 editorial in the Wall Street Journal, Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called Dahlan the man who has presided over an ever-fortified terrorist network in Gaza, which today is home to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and has become the base for some of the most heinous terrorist attacks unleashed against Israel.

    Relying on confirmed intelligence information, Olmert explained that Dahlan pel.ermitted to become a safe haven for the hundreds of fugitive terrorists fleeing Israeli forces. Among those being sheltered is his childhood friend Mohammed Dief, a leading Hamas mastermind with the blood of scores of Israelis on his hands. Dahlan's district also became the primary launching grounds for the hundreds of Kessem missiles fired at  Isra

    BUT IS NOT BLAH BLAH BLAH! The Palis and their brothers are still very much in the business of terror while fallaciously walking the walk and talking the talk of ceasefire. Meanwhile, Israel, is giving up LAND, blood and treasure. Who are the real lunatics here?

    Rifle-Smuggling into Gaza Nipped in the Bud; Terror Continues Defense/Security
      The porous Israeli-Egyptian border at Gaza was partially stopped up last night, when Israeli security authorities discovered and confiscated a stash of 36 rifles about to be smuggled into Gaza.

    An Israeli Border Police unit thwarted the smuggling of the Kalachnikov automatic rifles, but nine men involved in the attempt managed to flee the scene back into Egypt. Some 140 Kalachnikov rifles have been intercepted by Israeli forces along the Egyptian border since January 1, 2005 - a tiny amount in comparison with those that were not intercepted. According to army estimates, between July 2004 and February 2005, over 3,000 assault rifles were smuggled into Gaza, as well as 400,000 bullets, 400 pistols, and 600 kilograms of explosives.

    An Arab mob took advantage of the overturning of an IDF jeep in Bethlehem late this afternoon, and began stoning the rescue force that came to help the soldiers. Four soldiers were hurt, including one in light-to-moderate condition, and an Arab who threw bricks at the soldiers was shot and wounded.

    A teenaged Arab boy attempted to stab an IDF soldier at the Fouriq Checkpoint in Shomron, east of Shechem, this afternoon. The attacker was taken into custody without having succeeded in his goal.

    Near Shechem yesterday, a 15-year-old Arab boy was caught after being hired by Palestinian terrorists to carry five pipe-bombs into pre-1967 Israel.

    THE PRESIDENT: "Just concluded the second Cabinet meeting of the second term. I want to thank my Cabinet officials for doing such a fine job. I appreciate your hard work, and thank you for your dedication to the country. Q Mr. President, Prime Minister Sharon has said he intends to expand the largest Jewish settlement in the West Bank. Other officials say no construction is imminent. Are you satisfied? And what will you tell Sharon when you see him about the settlements?All_the_presidents_men

    THE PRESIDENT: Our position is very clear that the road map is important, and the road map calls for no expansion of the settlements. I'm optimistic we can achieve a peace in the Holy Land. I'm optimistic because I firmly believe that Ariel Sharon wants to have a peaceful partner, wants there to be a democracy in the Palestinian Territories, and I believe President Abbas wants the same thing. And there's a lot of hard work to be done, but we're making progress. And I look forward to meeting the Prime Minister in Crawford to continue to work with the parties to advance peace."
    Geez, how many Jooooooooooooos have to die, how many Oslos have to fail until we get this damn thing right? We gotta win the war first! You can't negotiate a peace on a war that has not yet been won?
    Anyone remember Vietnam? Anyone recall the difficulties surrounding negotiations on the declaration of a cease fire in Vietnam at the Paris Peace talks in '71  (even though the Americans had basically won that war on the ground)? BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO FINISH A WAR BEFORE YOU CAN NEGOTIATE A PEACE.....................where is the leverage?
    A senior Israeli Cabinet minister acknowledged Wednesday that serious differences exist between Israel and the United States over Jewish settlement expansion.

    And then, of course, there is  Daniel Pipes take on the pullout in the Jerusalem Post.........

    Sharon's plans at least have a quality to them, sparing Israel the wooly notions of a "new Middle East" that so harmed the country a decade ago. But in another way,Daniel_caric Sharon's plans are worse than Oslo; at least that disaster was carried out by the clueless Left. A Right – led by Ariel Sharon – valiantly and staunchly opposed it. This time, it is the Right's hero who, allied with the far-Left, is himself leading the charge, reducing the opposition to marginality.

    There are many theories for what reversed Sharon's views on the matter of a unilateral Gaza withdrawal in the 10 months between February and December 2003 – I have my own ideas about the hubris of elected Israeli prime ministers – but whatever the reason, its consequences are clear.

    Sharon betrayed the voters who supported him, wounding Israeli democracy. He divided Israeli society in ways that may poison the body politic for decades hence. He aborted his own successful policies vis- -vis the Palestinians. He delivered Palestinian, Arab and Muslim rejectionists their greatest boost ever. And he failed his American ally by delivering a major victory to the forces of terrorism.

    Hey Pipes (click #7), tell us how you reall feel...........btw that's the second Pipes piece that alludes to his take on Sharon's less than honorable motives in the disengagement plan. Hey Daniel do share!

    Yes, it Makes me Happy when the Animals turn the Guns Against Each Other

    I am sure I will take mega-criticism for this but frankly, I don"t give a __________. I am too tired of all the things that go unsaid in the name of political correctness (euphemism for antisemitism).

    In a continuing violent development, the terrorists have yet again turned the gun toward themselves. AT EACH OTHER, for a distinct and welcomed change. And I expect to hear from an number of you insisting that Abbas is the good guy..............well if that is indeed true then he will deal with these terrorists for what they are...........COLD BLOODED KILLERS. Until I am proven otherwise I am unwilling to sacrifice one more delicious Israeli life to their bloodlust.

    I am tired of murderers, terrorists, and wanton killers being referred to as "militants", "gunmen", "freedom fighters", or whatver flavor of the week "al aksa"," fatah", "plo", it's all smoke and mirrors - the killers are the same animals over and over again.

    Al-Aksa gunmen shoot up party meeting in challenge to Abbas leadership
    By Associated Press March 10, 2005/Israeli Insider, click headline

    Palestinian gunmen burst into a meeting of the ruling Fatah Party on Thursday, shooting into the air and forcing participants to disperse in a brazen challenge to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. The incident cast doubt on his authority as he comes under increasing pressure from Israel to disarm militants.

    More than 1,000 Fatah grass roots activists were meeting in the West Bank city of Ramallah when two dozen gunmen dressed in military-style fatigues, their faces covered, burst into the room in a shiny new hotel where the session was in progress. The gunmen, from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a violent group affiliated with Fatah, rampaged through the room and shouted slogans charging the Fatah leadership with complicity in widespread corruption. Shocked participants ducked and scrambled for the exits as the intruders, brandishing their assault rifles, began throwing chairs around, ordering everyone to leave.

    The meeting broke up in disarray, and as the Fatah members fled, the gunmen fired in the air outside the hall for several minutes. No one was hurt, but the gunmen made their point -- the session did not reconvene. "Our demands are for change and reform," said Menwer al-Aqraa, an Al Aqsa commander in Ramallah, without elaborating. He said, however, that his group would not disarm

    Pali security guard looks at members of the Fatah party as they leave a hotel in the West Bank town of Ramallah Thursday March 10, 2005, after more than 20 Palestinian gunmen burst into a large gathering of this ruling party, ordered people out of the building and fired shots into the air.

    Palestinian Terror Controlled by Iran

    While I can't say I am surprised, I found it somewhat reassuring to read this in a MSM left wing organ like TIME magazine (written with the omnipresent left wing slant of course, I mean G-d forbid it not Bush bash). But it reinforces the fundamental thinking of the right, hardly a band of disparate outlaw barbaric murderers, the deliberate and strategic network of state sponsored terrorism comes into the bright light of day. Out of the fog of mendacity, the Bush doctrine and the "Axis of Evil" is hardly myth, but brutal truth. What more do the naysayers need? This is World War IV............Godspeed

    Palestinian Islamic Jihad Is Controlled by Iran - Interview with Martin Indyk - Elaine ShannonAccording to Martin Indyk, former Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs and U.S. Ambassador to Israel during the Clinton administration, "What Secretary Rice knows and hasn't said is that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is controlled by Iran. While it's important, essential, to get the Syrians to shut down the PIJ office in Damascus, it's also important to be clear about what the source of the problem is. From the mid-1990s, Iran has been determined to use PIJ terrorist operations to disrupt the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and there is a very clear of pattern of PIJ activities during the intifada. Whenever [the region] calmed down, it was the PIJ that launched terrorist attacks, because the Iranians have a very strong interest in preventing the peace process from going forward. We should be pointing the finger at Iran and pressuring them, with the Europeans, to stop this sponsorship of terrorism against the Israeli-Palestinian peace process." (TIME)

    What Happened to the Goddamn BUSH DOCTRINE!

    Surprise Surprise Surprise. Syria did it! duh.........no! Now what? More diplomatic masturbation? More billions for mob contracts on Jewish lives to the Palis (currently being considered in England) yecch! Moral Inversion! Moral equivalence! Where is our Morality and why have we forsaken it? She sobs.....

    Israel Intercepted Order from Jihad Leader in Damascus for Tel Aviv BombingIsraeli intelligence officers briefed ambassadors of the EU, the G8, and the UN Security Council on Friday's Tel Aviv bombing. They read from a transcript of an intercepted telephone call in which Ramadan Shallah, Islamic Jihad's Damascus-based leader, ordered a West Bank commander to go ahead with the bombing. Mark Regev, the foreign ministry spokesman, said: "In a regime like the Syrian regime, such an order could not come from Damascus unless the regime was acquiescing or collaborating." (Independent-UK) Western Donors Weigh Billions for Palestinians - Josh MeyerTop U.S. and European officials met with the new Palestinian leadership in London to consider $4.5 billion or more in new aid that they hope will bolster the Palestinian government. Pledging money may prove to be the easy part. The larger challenge will be avoiding the corruption that drained the life out of aid programs during Arafat's long tenure. "Things haven't changed as much as they need to change, and it is going to be very difficult," said Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute. The PA has received billions of dollars for schools, hospitals, roads and other basic needs in the last decade, one of the most expensive development programs ever on a per-capita basis. But millions of dollars disappeared. Last year Congress stipulated that outside auditors must be able to monitor how the money was used. But a few months ago, as Congress considered a request for another $20 million, aides said they learned that U.S. auditors were not permitted to enter the building where they thought the records were.

    Remember I said 100,000 is the going rate Hizbollah pays for Jew Killing? Here's more PROOF

    I will ask until I am dead...............when is this moral inversion going to stop? When is it going to be ok to stop killing jews? People wake up, wha are we waiting for 9/12?
    Hezbollah paid up to $100,000 for attack

  • Palestinians finger Lebanese terror group in Tel Aviv bombing
  • TEL AVIV – The suicide bombing here Friday night that killed four Israelis and wounded over 50 was funded and directed by Hezbollah forces, which may have paid up to $100,000 for the attack, security sources told WorldNetDaily.
    The three main terror groups – Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades – denied involvement much the way Moe Larry and Curly denied hooliganizing.

     Hizbullah Lifts Pay for Suicide Attacks to $100,000

    Defense/Security

    The Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror organization has announced that it is raising the compensation it pays out to families of suicide attackers from $20,000 to $100,000. 
    Bank transfers and e-mail intercepted from the organization by they PA reveal this new development, reports Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman.

    Senior officials of PA armed forces claim that Hizbullah presents the number one threat to the ceasefire currently in effect. The Lebanese group is attempting to enlist terrorists from the Fatah organization, the main governing party in the PA, and from Fatah offshoots such as the Al Aksa Brigades. The latter is closely aligned with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Jews since the outbreak of the Oslo War in September 2000.

    Israeli officials, too, report that there are currently some 50 Hizbullah-sponsored terrorist cells throughout Judea and Samaria.

    Confessions of a Former Palestinian Terrorist

    Liaten up! If you are available

    Friday, February 18, 2005

    More Thuggery, Threats and Assasinations. Ah yes this is PEACE

     
    ah yes it all comes flooding back...........I remember it well. Dragging these poor souls into the street and blowing their brains out for suspected collaboration with the Israelis.       Shot dead in cold blood for all the world to see and Abbas says CONTINUE!. Oh, and if that weren't enough they are threatening more terrorism.      I love our new friends dont you? I cant wait to hear from my lefty pals telling me how "negative I am. All we are saying is give Peace a chance!" Kumbaya my lord!  Abu Mazen Orders Execution of Arabs Accused of Helping Israel Inside  Israel
       
    In one of his first policy decisions as head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) has approved death sentences for three Arab men accused of helping Israel.

    Gaza governor Sakher Bseso announced earlier this week that Abu Mazen had transferred several cases of people sentenced to death under Yasser Arafat’s regime to the mufti (arbiter of Islamic law) of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri. Abu Mazen then signed the decisions, authorizing PA executioners to carry out the death sentences.

    Shurat HaDin – The Israel Law Center condemned the decision, and though the identity of the three men was not released, speculated that the condemned men were most probably Yusef Hassan Sinwar, Muhammad Abu Kainas and his son, Rami Kainas.

    Sinwar, 31, was sentenced to hanging by a PA military tribunal in October 2004, after an hour long "trial." He was convicted of assisting the IDF in capturing fugitive terrorists.

    Abu Kainas and his son were similarly convicted in a Gaza military court of charges that they tipped off the IDF to the whereabouts of Hamas chief Abdel-Aziz Rantisi in June 2003, even though it lead to a failed assassination attempt, and that they also gave away the location of Ra'fat Za'anin, a Hamas leader the IDF successfully killed in 2003. The father and son were displayed to journalists in September 2004 at a police station in Gaza operated by Mohammed Dahlan's PA forces.

    Another PA prisoner, Walid Hamdiya, has been on death row since 1995. In October 2002, he was sentenced to death by firing squad. Hamdiya's sentence, however, has not yet been carried out. Several other accused Israeli agents being held in PA prisons are facing capital charges although they have not been "convicted" as of yet.

    Defense/Security
       
    The Palestinian Authority's strongman in Gaza, Mohammed Dahlan, threatened today that attacks from the PA will continue if Israel does not withdraw from the strategic Philadelphi Route.

    While noting in an interview with Israel Radio that PA president Mahmoud Abbas is committed to maintaining security while the planned Israeli withdrawal from Gush Katif proceeds, Dahlan warned that Israeli failure to withdraw from the border area with Egypt would turn the Philadelphi Route into another "Shab'a Farms", referring to an area along the Israeli border with Lebanon that Hizbullah terrorists demand Israel evacuate. The Shab'a Farms, or Mount Dov area, has been a frequent target of attack by Hizbullah forces.

    So many things to thank the frogs for......their gifts just keep on giving!


    Love, look at the two of us Allies Resisting as U.S. Pushes Terror Label for Hizballah - Steven R. WeismanThe Bush administration is arguing with European governments over whether they should designate Lebanon-based Hizballah a terrorist organization. In the past two weeks, France has rebuffed appeals by Secretary of State Rice and Israeli Foreign Minister Shalom to list Hizballah as a terrorist organization, which would prevent it from raising money in Europe through charity groups. Israeli and American officials say that Palestinian chairman Abbas has told them that he, too, regards Hizballah as a destructive force, one determined to undermine peace talks by supporting militant groups that attack Israelis. The Netherlands, Italy, and Poland support the Bush administration's view, while Germany and Britain believe the issue is moot unless the French change their minds.

    The Shock! The Horror!! Released Terrorists Return to Terror

    Unthinkable I know, but its true half of Released terrorists return to terror. Why this is still a negotiating tool I do not hazard to guess. I use to imagine that the Israelis would microchip the terrorists much the way I microchipped my King Charles Cavalier, Dagny, to track them before they got the next one off. But no such luck, having investigated this to small extent it seems they are not GPS - awwwwwww sh*t!

    Half of Released Terrorists Return to Terror 14:35 Feb 11, '05 / 2 Adar 5765

    With a ministerial committee set to decide Sunday which Palestinian terrorists to free as a gesture to Abu Mazen, a new study shows that half of released Arab terrorists return to their evil ways.
    A booklet published by journalist Boaz HaEtzni and others includes warnings and protests by public and military figures who say that releasing prisoners is dangerous from several standpoints: * It places the lives of Israel's citizens in certain danger* It harms the IDF's deterrence effect* It strengthens both the motivation and capabilities of the terror organizations* It weakens Israel's moral stance against terrorists and those who shelter them."From 1985 until now," the booklet states, "Israel has released thousands of Palestinian terrorists in various prisoner exchanges. Not one of them underwent a test to determine if he will continue to endanger us or not." "We have gathered some of the results of past prisoner releases," HaEtzni explained, "and we show that waves of terrorism have been ignited as a result. According to authorized data, some 50% of the released terrorists returned to terrorism after their release.""Our purpose in publicizing this report," he says, "is to warn those who release terrorists that every other terrorist to be released is expected to endanger us again!""Those who must make this decision," the booklet states, "should be aware that the eyes of women, children, babies, elderly, new immigrants and IDF soldiers who were murdered by terrorists released by Israel will be upon you. If the government hadn't decided to release them, and if the President had not signed their pardon, and if the Supreme Court had not refrained from preventing the release, these people would have been with us today."Though the public and ministerial debate is focused on the question of whether to release murderers or not, many relatives of terror victims say no terrorists at all should be released. Aryeh Bachrach, whose 18-year-old son Ohad was murdered by Arab terrorists almost a decade ago, says there is no difference between terrorists who have murdered and those who did not succeed in their goal. "Our organization [Almagor] has lists of terrorists released without 'blood on their hands'," Bachrach said, "whose hands became full of blood afterwards. If they have no blood on their hands, it means they didn't succeed the first time, and they'll simply try again." The ministerial committee comprises Ministers Sharon, Mofaz, Peres, Olmert, Netanyahu, Ramon, Livny, and Ezra.

    Ahms for the Arab Rich, Ahms for Murdering Thugs! ARGH!

    Time to hurl, safeguard your keyboards......... "Deadbeat Arabs"? You mean they are not gorging us enough on their oil exports.?? Believe me, the last thing the Arabs want is the Palios out of those refugee camps. It has been their MOST EFFECTIVE WEAPON against Israel. ULULULULUL

    Lantos,
    Kissinger Link U.S. Aid to PA with Contributions from Arab "Deadbeats"
    -
    Barry Schweid  Rep. Tom Lantos, the senior Democrat on the House
    International Relations Committee, said Thursday he would condition U.S. aid to
    the Palestinians on oil-rich Arab "deadbeats" making good on their own promised
    contributions. The assertion drew swift endorsement from former Secretary of
    State Henry Kissinger, who said, "I think it is reasonable
    that the surrounding Arab states that have resources should at least match U.S.
    support
    .''    Lantos said he would urge Congress to insist that
    the PA fight terrorism and that Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and
    other Arab oil states, which he said reaped $40 billion in windfall profits last
    year, make good on their pledges of $400 million in aid.    Lantos
    also said the new Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, "will
    have to show backbone''
    by dismantling terror groups. "He will either
    defeat them, or they will defeat him,'' Lantos said. Kissinger added, "there can
    be no solution without a tremendous change in attitude, particularly
    propaganda,'' in Arab countries in the region. (AP/Guardian-UK)

    The New York Slime Times buries child murder by Palios

    Al_dura_2 Tunisian stamp, which says in French and Arabic "The Palestinian Martyr Child, Mahamed Doura" Once again the New York Times continues to abandon the truth and pursue its left wing antisemetic agenda. I am sure you remember the story........................................................

    The New York Times buried on page 6 of the Business section (Section C) an important story (February 7, 2005) on the escalating scandal surrounding the facts of the infamous Muhammad al Dura episode. The case involved the alleged Israeli killing of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy and the severe wounding of his father at Gaza's Netzarim Junction in September 2000. Then the Times buried in paragraph 26 the key finding of the article itself which is that two prominent French journalists reviewed footage of the event shot by France 2 televison and found there is no "definitive scene showing that the boy had died." Additionally, the same journalists, Denis Jeambar and Daniel Leconte, refuted a central claim of the France 2 correspondent Charles Enderlin who reported the al Dura story. His longstanding defense regarding the scant, apparently truncated footage of the alleged killing had been that to show further images of the shooting and thus "the agony of the child" – was too "unbearable." Jeambar and Leconte stated categorically that such images of the "agony" do not exist. That is, there are no scenes of a bloody and dying child and injured father in the 27 minutes of tape they reviewed of the scene despite Enderlin's repeated claims to the contrary. Unmentioned at all in the Times story is the pair's statement in their article in the January 25 edition of Le Figaro that the 27 minutes, including footage taken just prior to the alleged shooting of al Dura, shows scenes in which the "Palestinians seem to be organizing a staged event. They 'play' at war with the Israelis and simulate, in most of the cases, imaginary injuries." ...................Once again much the way the New York Times played the Abu Gharib story, something like 48 front page stories on that irrelevant piece of nonsense, the NYT buries this important truth of media manipulation and propaganda. Bear in mind, they have never ran front page stories on the grossest corruption scandal of our time - Oil for Food, sucking the blood of the Iraqi poor. But mindless front page coverage of Abu. And you still dont see their agenda? Thank G-d for HonestReporting.com

    Kill a Jew Go to Heaven


    NATAN SHARANSKY's timing was perfect. On January 25, Sharansky, the ex-Soviet dissident and current Israeli cabinet member, presented a detailed report on the Palestinian Authority's promotion of anti-Semitism and genocide in its official media. He did so amidst the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and Israel's National Day Against anti-Semitism.
    A day later, one of the co-authors of the report, Itamar Marcus, explained his findings to foreign diplomats in the Israeli parliament. The disturbing report compiled by the Palestinian Media Watch, titled "Kill a Jew-Go To Heaven," illuminates what Sharansky calls the PA's "culture of hatred." After Marcus delivered his briefing, Sharansky seized on the Auschwitz anniversary in a statement to reporters, declaring that anti-Semitic propaganda poisons Palestinian society as it once did in Nazi Germany.
    Is that an exaggeration? Not after perusing "Kill a Jew-Go to Heaven." The 20-page report outlines the three phases of anti-Semitism found in various PA-run media, including newspapers, radio, crossword puzzles, political cartoons, and school textbooks.
    The first phase depicts Jews as subhuman. "The foundation stage defines Jews and presents them as different from others, possessing inherently evil traits," the report explains. This hatred is even disseminated to children. "Treachery and disloyalty are character traits of the Jews and therefore one should be aware of them," the Palestinian textbook Islamic Education for Ninth Grade says.
    When such content was brought to the PA's attention in 1999, the U.S. government offered to fund the reprinting of that book and others. But the PA refused. The report also contains 20 segments from interviews with various individuals on Palestinian television who compare Jews to animals.
    Jewish traditions are maligned in this phase as well. A PA daily newspaper, while blaming the drug problem in the PA on Israel, ran a cartoon of the Jewish menorah, replacing the seven flames with seven syringes.
    The second phase portrays Jews as a threat to the existence of Palestinians in particular and the Arab world in general. "[The second] phase shows that these traits are not a private Jewish matter, but have ramifications for the entire world," the report reads. ". . . Jews are planning and executing heinous crimes. If unchecked these crimes constitute a mortal danger, not only to all Muslims and Arabs, but to all of humanity."

    Posted by Hello Read the whole thing, click on the title "Kill a .............."                                                            Natan Sharansky draws attention to a new report by the Palestinian Media Watch. by Rachel DiCarlo

    The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

    ....You cannot take a cease-fire as a long-range goal while they are still preserving their infrastructure. The extremist organizations can rebuild them and bring about a situation in which, at a time they choose, they can carry out one terrorist attack or a series of terror attacks, which will bring down this whole process and send it to hell." (Ha'aretz)

    What a ceasefire really means. We must be very careful. We  want only peace..........but our kindess is often mistaken for shmuckiness and weakness. Palestinian Militants Unleash Mortar Barrage After Truce DeclarationPalestinian militants fired a series of mortar bombs and rockets into Jewish settlements in Gaza on Thursday, two days after Palestinian and Israeli leaders declared a halt to violence at a summit meeting. Hamas said it launched 46 mortars and rockets over a two-hour period at daybreak on Thursday. (Reuters) See also Israeli-Palestinian Security Talks PostponedIsraeli-Palestinian talks on security coordination were postponed on Thursday. Palestinian officials said the Israelis asked to cancel the meeting "because of mortar firing in Gaza." (Reuters) The Middle East's Dance of Death - Melanie PhillipsWhat the world finds so hard to acknowledge is that the source of this terrible conflict is not Israel's behavior. It is not the settlements, the roadblocks, the prisoners. It is not, despite the near-universal assumption, the absence of a Palestinian state. The source is the Arab world-backed Palestinian terror war against Israel's existence. The onus is on Abbas to end that war by dismantling the entire infrastructure of Palestinian terror, and to give his own community an identity other than the impulse to destroy another people. But the signs are not auspicious. What looks rather more likely is that Abbas is instead a world-class tactician, who will be able to pose with ostensibly clean hands disclaiming the murderous terrorism that Hamas will continue to inflict upon Israel, thus forcing Israel to react and casting it even more decisively as the regional bully. If this is so, then Israel is in even more danger now than it was in before. (melaniephillips.com)

    Palistinian Insiders

    One of the cardinal rules of responsible journalism is the independent status of the journalist ― while journalists may belong to political parties, they cannot actively work for a party relevant to the sphere they cover, lest their independence and neutrality be jeopardized.
    But today, the Jerusalem Post reported that two of the largest wire services ― Agence France-Presse (AFP) and Associated Press (AP) ― have employed journalists with inappropriately close ties to the Palestinian Authority. Majida al-Batsh was a Palestinian affairs correspondent for AFP for many years, while simultaneously being on the payroll of the Palestinian Authority as a reporter for the PA's official organ, Al-Ayyam.
    If this is not evidence enough of impropriety at AFP, last year Batsh announced she would actually run for the presidency of the Palestinian Authority. The Post reports:
    Her colleagues claim that shortly before she joined the race [for PA president], Batsh resigned from the news agency, saying she wanted to devote her time to the election campaign. However, they add, this did not prevent her from seeking the agency's help in her campaign.
    "One day she showed up and asked to use the fax machine to send some documents," reports one coworker. "The agency did not object."
    Batsh isn't the only AFP reporter receiving a PA salary on the side:
    One of the agency's correspondents in the Gaza Strip is Adel Zanoun, who also happens to be the chief reporter in the area for the PA's Voice of Palestine radio station.
    The AFP bureau chief in Jerusalem, Patrick Anidjar, refuses to discuss the issue, saying, "I don't understand why you have to have the name of our correspondents." Pressed to give a specific answer, he says: "I don't want our correspondents' names to go into print. I don't want to answer the question. What is this, a police investigation?"
    Meanwhile, Muhammad Daraghmeh ― who turns out near-daily reports from Ramallah or Jerusalem for the Associated Press ― also works for the PA's Al-Ayyam, according to the Jerusalem Post (and a pro-Palestinian site).
    This is the equivalent of a network's Washington correspondent getting paid on the side by the Democrats or Republicans. Imagine the scandal that would produce. Yet with their coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, AFP and AP don't seem to have a problem with it.
    HonestReporting has repeatedly demonstrated that the local staff employed by western news outlets contributes in no small way to the problem of anti-Israel media bias. The major media outlets rely on Palestinian cameramen and stringers to tell the tale from the West Bank and Gaza, as the Jerusalem Post reports:
    AFP is not the only member of the international news media to employ "journalists" who see themselves as "foot soldiers" serving the Palestinian cause. Other parts of the foreign media frequently allow their stories to be filtered through such fixers-consultants...
    "I will never work on a story that defames my people or leadership," boasts a Palestinian "fixer" (mediator/guide/translator) who works on a regular basis with many foreign journalists. "It is my duty to protect my people against Israeli propaganda."
    All this calls to mind the declaration by Fayad Abu Shamala, the BBC correspondent in Gaza for the past 10 years, at a Hamas rally in May 2001:
    "Journalists and media organizations [are] waging the campaign shoulder-to-shoulder together with the Palestinian people."
    HonestReporting subscribers are encouraged to write to Agence France-Presse, requesting clarification of its policy regarding AFP reporters working simultaneously for institutions within the Palestinian Authority.

    Don't WHITEWASH Arafat's record

    Please  report on Arafat's history objectively. You must include his decades-long involvement in terror, his goal of destroying Israel, and his siphoning of hundreds of millions of dollars from money donated to help the Palestinian people that went instead into his own private accounts. In this era of unspeakable terror, please remind the public of Arafat's blood-soaked history and of his many missed opportunities to bring peace and a better life to the Palestinian people.
