Iran's Leader Calls for Jihad Against Israel aka The Free World

Iran's Leader Calls for Jihad Against Israel
Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei hailed Palestinian militants for "expelling the Zionist regime from Gaza" and said "the only way to confront the Zionist enemy is the continuation and fortification of resistance and jihad." Speaking Saturday in a meeting with Islamic Jihad's secretary general Ramazan Abdullah, he added that "with the cooperation of jihadi groups," further "success is also possible in other parts of the occupied territories."

My question is how much more proof do we need that we are indeed in the throes of World War IV. The Iranians back the Palis, the Syrians, Hizbollah, Hamas and even the diabolical UN: says Iran Produced Enough Stock for Nuclear Weapon - George Jahn
Iran has produced about 7 tons of the gas it needs for uranium enrichment since it restarted the process last month, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported Friday. A former UN nuclear inspector said that would be enough for an atomic weapon. (AP/Chicago Tribune)

The global chessboard continues to strengthen it's axis of evil as Russia Opposes Reporting Iran to Security Council.

These are dangerous developments of the gravest of consequences. And if the Left in Amerca doesn't stop smoking the crack cocaine that is making their brains into mush, this long drawn out World War will be bloodier, deadlier, beyond our wildest nightmares.

A is A. What's with the playing nice? We have a world crisis on our hands. We are a hyperpower, why are we so afraid to use it. REMAKE IRAQ. Give the KURDS A HOMELAND. Take out Iran's Nukes. Prop up our Eastern European friends.

Let's play Chess for G-d's sake, the game has already begun

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.

Developments Continue Apace in the War of the World

Once again Iran is using it's puppet Assad of Syria to do it's diabolical bidding.

Unlike the Left in America, Iran understands the battle agaisnt Radical Islam and therefore "control of free peoples" is as much in Iraq as it is in London, New York, Afghanistan.

I believe IRAQ IS THE FRONT LINE in the fight for Western Civilization.(so does Iran,Iran_beheadings_atlas don't kid yourself)

A month ago General Safavi declared before an audience of senior naval officers that Tehran's mission was to create "a multipolar world in which —Iran plays a leadership role" for Islam. Recently Ahmadinejad announced one of the most ambitious government mission statements in decades, declaring that the ultimate goal of Iran's foreign policy is nothing less than "a government for the whole world" under the leadership of the Mahdi, the Absent Imam of the Shiites—code for the export of radical Islam. As for the only power capable of challenging this vision, the United States is in its "last throes," an ofuli (sunset) power destined to be superceded by the toluee (sunrise) of the Islamic republic. Geopolitical dominance in the Middle East, the tract unequivocally stated, is "the incontestable right of the Iranian nation."

According to WND, Syria, which has short and mid-range rockets, has been seeking help fromSyria_out North Korea in developing a missile propellant program and may be looking to acquire longer-range missiles – which could target U.S. positions in Iraq – from Pyongyang, according to recent U.S. government reports.

"It is possible that as regional security prospects continue to deteriorate, Syria may attempt to acquire longer-range systems such as the No-Dong MRBM [medium-range ballistic missile]," stated a report by the Congressional Research Service, which regularly briefs U.S. lawmakers.

The report, titled "Missile Defense: The Current Debate," said Syria may be looking to follow Iran's lead in extending its ballistic capabilities. Iran has an extensive missile program capable of targeting most Mideast countries.

Currently, Syria possesses a Scud missile arsenal that can strike deep inside nearby Israel and Jordan. The No-Dongs, with a range of 1,300 kilometers, would make Damascus a significant regional threat, putting all of Iraq and Turkey in its range.

Yesterday, U.S. Marine jets destroyed a train station in a town just outside the Syrian border because insurgents were storing weapons there, the U.S. military said.

Officials said this week Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley are examining ways of increasing diplomatic pressure on Syria.

 

Turning its focus on Iran, the congressional report stated Tehran has one of the largest missile inventories in the Middle East, procured with the help of Russia, North Korea and China.

And yeah it's time we gave the KURDS THEIR OWN COUNTRY. They would certainly be an ally we could count on. But that's a whole other thread.

    Why haven't we extracted this shitty little dentist?

    Syrians Sustaining and Replenishing Hardest Core of Iraq Insurgency - Ghaith Abdul-Ahad
    A stream of fighters from Syria - most of them Syrians, but lately many of them Saudis - has sustained and replenished the hardest core of the Iraq insurgency, and supplied many of its suicide bombers. Nurtured by a militant interpretation of Islam, they insist they are fighting for their vision of their faith. Syrian smuggler Abu Ibrahim, who worked in Saudi Arabia for seven years, calls 9/11 "a great day. America was defeated."
        In Saudi Arabia, Abu Ibrahim heard about Abu Qaqaa, a charismatic Syrian religious sheikh who preached a radical version of Islam in Aleppo. "We were Wahhabis. Abu Qaqaa was preaching what we believed in." Returning to Aleppo, he became Abu Qaqaa's right-hand man. Two weeks after the attacks in New York and at the Pentagon, his group celebrated in public with a "festival," featuring video of hand-to-hand combat and training montages of guerrillas leaping from high walls. They called it "the Festival of America the Wounded Wolf." By 2002 the anti-American festivals were running twice weekly. Jihad was being allowed into the open. Abu Ibrahim said Syrian security officials and presidential advisers attended festivals, one of which was called "The People of Sham [an ancient name for the region] Will Now Defeat the Jews and Kill Them All." Money poured in from Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
        Abu Ibrahim credited Abu Musab Zarqawi with revitalizing the insurgency, especially since October, when he pledged fealty to Osama bin Laden. "Six months ago, Zarqawi and Osama bin Laden were different," he said. "Osama did not consider the killing of Shiites as legitimate. Zarqawi did that. Anyone - Christian, Jew, Sunni, Shiites - whoever cooperates with the Americans can be killed. It's a holy war." Recently, he said, his contacts in Iraq have said they were not in need of fighters, but money. He said he personally carried cash, provided by sympathetic Saudis, between Saudi Arabia and Syria. "Our brothers in Iraq are asking for Saudis," he said. "The Saudis go with enough money to support themselves and their Iraqi brothers." (Washington Post/Guardian-UK)

    We Have Eyes, But Will Not See

    I smell war
    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?

    I have seen Moishe the Beetle, he is me

    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".

    U.S.: Syria Main Conduit for Zarqawi in Iraq
    Syria is the main conduit for foreign militants fighting for al-Qaeda-ally Abu Musab al-ZarqawiEye_allseeingeye in Iraq, a senior U.S. administration official said on Wednesday. "We're concerned that Zarqawi is supported by a foreign fighter network that gets foreign fighters largely through Syria," the official said. "There are locations in Syria where foreign fighters and money and logistics come together and then transit to Iraq, and those foreign fighters and money come from elsewhere in the Muslim world." Syria has taken "some cosmetic steps," but "not nearly what they ought to be doing," the official said.
        "They are a major disruptive force, they are disruptive in Iraq, they are disruptive of the efforts between Palestinians and Israelis to come up with a Middle East peace," he said. "Syria in some sense has been a source of instability in the region," the official said. (Reuters)

    Don't be fooled: Reports of Syria's Withdrawal are Greatly Exaggerated

    I know everyone is all happy and psyched that Syria  has pulled out of Lebanon. But don't letAssadlongneck that Ass-ad fool you. You are too smart for that! He can't let go of the very lifeblood that keeps his economy afloat. He can't let go of the direct proximity that Lebanon provides to direct attacks on Israel under the guise "hizbollah" aka Syria.
    So this is how the cockroaches are going about their business (from JINSA):
    Palestinian Military Bases: We have been pointing to the problem of Palestinian military bases in Lebanon. Now, Geostrategy Direct reports “Syria’s intelligence units have relocated to Palestinian refugee camps and military bases, which remain off limits to Lebanese authorities.” In 1982, the PFLP-GC established these bases for training and storage of Katyusha rockets, rocket-propelled grenades and light weapons. The UN has sent a team to verify Syria’s withdrawal but neither they nor Lebanese police or army units have been permitted to enter the bases. The PFLP-GC was founded and has been led, Geostrategy Direct notes, by Ahmed Jibril, a Syrian military officer.

    VIVA THE BUSH DOCTRINE! Bush extends Sanctions against Syria

    In a letter to the House speaker and Senate majority leader, Bush said Syria poses a "continuing, unusual, and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States." He said the sanctions respond to that threat.
    U.S.-Syrian relations have only worsened since last year. The United States pulled its ambassador from Damascus in February in protest over the assassination of a leading Lebanese politician who often clashed with Syria.

    Bush Extends Sanctions Against Syria


    WASHINGTON -- President Bush on Thursday renewed economic sanctions on SyriaCheerleader implemented a year ago, saying its government still supports terrorism and is undermining efforts to stabilize Iraq.

    Bush originally banned all U.S. exports to Syria except for food and medicine on May 11, 2004. The measures also include a ban on flights to and from the United States; authorization to the Treasury Department to freeze assets of Syrian citizens and entities involved in terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, the occupation of Lebanon or terrorism in Iraq; and restrictions on banking relations between U.S. banks and the Syrian national bank.

    Syria Ignoring U.S. Requests on Terrorists
    Syria has ignored U.S. demands to stop foreign fighters from crossing the border into Iraq and "terrorists" operating from Syrian territory, a top U.S. commander said. "We have provided Syrians with very specific information and asked them to help in securing the Iraq-Syrian borders to stop foreign fighters from crossing into Iraq," Gen. John Abizaid, commander of the U.S. forces in the Gulf, told the Kuwaiti daily Al-Rai Al-Aam. "More importantly, we asked them to cooperate with us in chasing terrorists operating out of Syria, in addition to Iraqi Baathists present in Syria who are trying to organize military operations inside Iraq." "We have been very specific and clear in our demands. Unfortunately, all these demands fell on Syrian deaf ears, and they did not respond to any of it." (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

    Lets talk about WMD, Lets talk about You and Me, lets talk about all the Good Times That will be

    yeah yeah lets talk about WMD............fresh from the CIA
    Look no matter how you twist yourself into the wind, there were WMDs
    Ba da bing, ba dah boomWmd_web

    Addendum to Report on Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction
    - Charles Duelfer (U.S. Central Intelligence Agency)

     

    • Iraq Survey Group (ISG) formed a working group to investigate the possibility of the evacuation of WMD-related material from Iraq prior to the 2003 War. The investigation centered on the possibility that WMD materials were moved to Syria. Whether Syria received military items from Iraq for safekeeping or other reasons has yet to be determined.
    • There was evidence of a discussion of possible WMD collaboration initiated by a Syrian security officer, and ISG received information about the movement of material out of Iraq, including the possibility that WMD was involved. In the judgment of the working group, these reports were sufficiently credible to merit further investigation. ISG was unable to complete its investigation and is unable to rule out the possibility that WMD was evacuated to Syria before the war. Firm conclusions on actual WMD movements may not be possible.
    • Based on evidence available at present, ISG judged that it was unlikely that an official transfer of WMD material from Iraq to Syria took place. However, ISG was unable to rule out unofficial movement of limited WMD-related materials.
    • Detainee de-briefs allowed ISG to confirm the use of the chemical agent VX during the Iran-Iraq war and the use of nerve gas agent in Karbala during the Shia uprising following the 1991 war.
    • So far there is little evidence that either foreign jihadists operating in Iraq or Iraq insurgent groups are attracting experts from the former regime's WMD programs. There are multiple reports of Iraqis with general chemical or biological expertise helping insurgents to produce chemical or biological agents. Unidentified members of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI) allegedly smuggled an Iraq rocket scientist into Iran at the request of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security.

    VIVA LE BUSH DOCTINE!! LONG LIVE BUSH!

    FINALLY! Bush says what has needed to be said for decades..........G-d love him. Hamas Hizbollah FINITO. And let me say if Hamas wins out and beats Abbas in the oncoming Pali elections, that is a DECLARATION OF WAR. No ambiguity, no gray area........... it's time to fight the real war and put an end to all this appeasement and moral equivocation.

    ARUTZ: Bush Demands Syria Shut Down Hizbullah Defense/Security
    American President George W. Bush demanded Tuesday night that Syria not only withdraw from Lebanon but also shut down Hizbullah terrorist operations.

    Hizbullah "is a dangerous organization," the President said on a Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation broadcast. "There is a reason why we've put Hizbullah on a terrorist list. They've killed Americans in the past. We will continue to work with the international community to keep them on that list and we will continue to pressure this group... You can't have a free country if a group of people are like an armed militia."

    Bush also called for Syria to withdraw totally from Lebanon and to stop supporting Hizbullah: “The United States can join with the rest of the world... and say to Syria, get out -- not only get out with your military forces, but get out with your intelligence services, too; get completely out of Lebanon, so Lebanon can be free and the people can be free."

    Hizbullah has been increasing its strength over the past several years, ever since its attacks on Israeli soldiers succeeded in forcing then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak to withdraw IDF troops from the southern Lebanon "security zone." Israeli forces had been there since the 1982 "Peace for Galilee" War, and were withdrawn in April 2000. The withdrawal encouraged the Palestinian Authority to launch the Oslo War five months later.

    Since Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon, many of the Hizbullah tactics and weapons have found their way across the Syrian-controlled Lebanese border into Israel. They are largely found in the Jenin, Tul Karem and Shechem areas of Samaria. Both Israel and the United States have accused Syria of financing and encouraging the Hizbullah terrorists

    Hizbollah fronting for Syria while flying Drone over Israel

    They say it's no big deal but it scares the begeezus outta me............or is Israel luring them, "daring' them to take them on. Still stinks from on high (or low in this case).........WTF are we waiting for?

    For the second time in less than six months, Hizbullah on Monday managed to infiltrate a drone into Israel's airspace over the Galilee without it being detected and intercepted by the IAF.

    The incident came amid warnings by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and senior security officials that Hizbullah might try to heat up the northern border during the Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon and the disengagement from the Gaza Strip.

    After the first penetration by a pilotless plane in November last year, the IAF boosted its detection and interception capabilities in the North to prevent future occurrences.

    The measures did not succeed, however, and on Monday afternoon another unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flew over Western Galilee, including Acre, Ma'alot, Nahariya and Shlomi, as well as kibbutzim and moshavim.

    IAF planes and helicopter gunships were scrambled, but the drone, not one of the fastest of aerial vehicles, was apparently brought safely back to Lebanon by its operators.Hezbollah

    The IDF confirmed that a Hizbullah drone had been spotted over Western Galilee and that the incident was being examined, but called it a Hizbullah attempt at "propaganda".

    This is ugly and I don't like it and neither should you. Terrorists flying drones over Israel........hellloooooooooo?  [pic: Hezbollah raids were a model for Pali terrorists]

    *Any tit-for-tat  exchange (Israel and Hezbollah aka Syria) in which these missiles were launched would trigger a massive Israeli military operation against Lebanon - "turning it into a parking lot," according to one analyst.

    Even a Broken Clock is Right Twice a day........OH AND YES IT'S TIME TO INVADE SYRIA

    Mother of G-d, I cannot believe my eyes. can it really be?The UN uttering a truth? The UN not playing fixer and attempting some twisted moral equivocation. And more shocking p  brought to us by the New York Times, no less. I must have woken up in some parallel universe..........the piece by Warren Hoge (brother to James Hoge whom I worked for at the New York Daily News, but to which there is no conflict of interest because he was soooooooo not my rabbi and always made the "safe decisions" - but that story for another day).
    Anyway check this out, UN points fingers at Syria for the Lebanese assasination of RafikHariri. Can you believe they are not blaming on the elders of Zion? I know I cant.
    UN  Cites Syria as Factor in Lebanese Assassination - Warren Hoge
    A toughly worded UN report into the assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri concluded Thursday that heavy-handed Syrian interference in Lebanese affairs had created the polarizing tensions that led to his death and that a deeply flawed local investigation had obstructed efforts to find his killers. At one point, the report said, Syria's leader personally threatened Hariri. The author, Patrick Fitzgerald, a deputy police commissioner of Ireland, called for an investigation by an independent commission as the only way of uncovering the truth behind Hariri's killing. UN Secretary General Kofi Annan endorsed the call for an international investigation. (New York Times)

    Call me crazy but if this is indeed the case and state sponsored assasination of a neighboring countries leader is a DECLARATION OF WAR. This is just as eggregious as Saddam going into Kuwait in '91. To sit idly by while one country murders the leader of another is sooooooooo Neville Chamberlain. Sorry guys but its time to move on Syria.

    If you don't know whats been going on in Lebanon, sit down and listen to Brigitte Gabriel's interview (click).

    Moreover, Syria's  Secret War - Walid Phares
    According to sources inside the "Cedar Revolution," the grassroots pro-democratic movement that has sprouted in Lebanon in recent weeks, Syria has no intention of relinquishing power. Working in concert with its counterparts in Iran, Syria has developed a plan that entails deploying terror and intelligence networks inside Lebanon to orchestrate a series of subversive activities to prove that Syria is needed to maintain security. Already in existence is a coordinated network of pro-Syrian groups under the direct command of the Syrian intelligence service in Damascus. This network includes the Syrian Social-Nationalist Party (SSNP), the intelligence services of the Lebanese and Syrian regimes, and the intelligence network of the Republican Guard, headed by Col. Moustafa Hamdane. The writer is a professor  of Middle East studies and Senior Fellow with the Foundation for the Defense of  Democracies. (FrontPageMagazine)

    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.

    BUSH DOCTRINE: Initial formulation: No distinction between terrorists and those who harbor them

    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.

    I first Posted this on the 2/16

    While the UN goes about it daily business of rape, robbery and pillaging, the bloodlibel reward for murder goes unnoticed. And if that werent enough, even the French refuse to classify Hizbullah as a terrorist organiztion. Ellsworth Toohey, your legacy is very much alive

    And who is giving Hizbullah all this dough?

     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.

    DECLARE WAR !Lebanese Prime Minister's ASSASSIN traveled thru SYRIA, IRAQ

    There are key moments, when suddenly the truth becomes painfull, painfully clear. This assasisnation is such a moment. A Global epiphany. It is irrelevant why Syria is the architect behind the murder of a World Leader. I am not interested in the MESSAGE ASSAD IS SENDING TO HIS COMRAD IN ARMS, CHIRAC. The reality on the ground is this is an ACT OF WAR against democracy, a free nation and the BUSH DOCTRINE. BASTA! The time has come, WE TAKE OUT SYRIA. When Saddam invaded Kuwait we were right there. Why should this be different?

    BEIRUT -- The assassin who killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri traveled
    from Iraq through Syria to carry out the attack, according to the Beirut judge
    leading the inquiry into the bombing. Rachid Mezher,
    senior investigator for the Lebanese military tribunal, said the organizers had
    been recruited from Islamist groups linked to Syria and operating against the
    U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. Investigators believe that a
    suicide bomber drove an explosives-laden car into the 60-year-old billionaire's
    convoy Monday, killing him and 16 others. Judge Mezher
    said he believed that a video, in which Ahmed Abu Adas said the attack was the
    work of "Victory and Jihad in Greater Syria," was a genuine claim of
    responsibility. Judge Mezher's opinion, however, is far
    from universally accepted. Shortly after the attack,
    Justice Minister Adnan Addoum said the claim could be an attempt to mislead
    investigators, the Associated Press reported from Beirut.
    Abu Adas, 23, a Palestinian Lebanese believed to have
    fled the country, attended two Beirut mosques known to be recruiting grounds for
    the Ansar al-Islam group linked to the Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi.Read the whole stroy here in The Washington Times

    Zee French reap what zay sow?

    Weasel  Watch Agence France-Presse reports: "The assassination of former  Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri was a deliberate blow to France, whose  president Jacques Chirac was a personal friend and has sponsored UN moves to end  the Syrian occupation, Paris-based commentators said Tuesday."

     

    Oh no! How did the French manage to squander all the world sympathy they had  earned by their courageous defense of Saddam Hussein against big bad bully boy  Bush? We trust there's a lot of soul-searching going on at the Elysée Palace.  How do you say "Why do they hate us?" in French? WSJ OpinionJournal

    If China is Godfather*, then Russia is Barzini*

     

    Ok, let me understand this.........last week Russia was arming Syria, right? This week,they are tripping the light fantastic with Saudi Arabia.


    Russia Says It's Ready to Arm Saudi Arabia
    Russia Says It's Ready to Arm Saudi Arabia

    Lyuba Pronina, Staff Writer Moscow Times February 10, 2005 No. 3103
    [From  David Isenberg's Weapons Trade Observer,
    http://lists.topica.com/lists/sento]
    [With thanks to  www.mideastweb.org/mewnews1.htm ]

    Moscow is preparing its first major defense contract with Saudi Arabia, the
    world's largest arms buyer that has traditionally spent its petrodollars on
    U.S.-made weapons. The deal is part of a strategy aimed at diversifying
    Russia's arms buyers away from China and India, Sergei Chemezov, general
    director of state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport, told reporters
    Wednesday.

          

    Russia also signed an arms contract with Morocco last month, he said, the
    first since the breakup of the Soviet Union.      

          

    Chemezov refused to give any details, but said that Russia is stepping up       
    negotiations with Middle Eastern countries for jointly developing air       
    defense systems on the basis of the domestically produced S-300, Buk and
    Tor-M1 systems.

    Despite Israeli and American protests, Russia is going ahead with plans to  sell sophisticated SA-18 antiaircraft missiles to Syria, Prime Minister Ariel  Sharon said Tuesday. 

    Sharon, at an annual press conference with the Foreign Press Association,  said he had received a letter Tuesday from Russian President Vladimir Putin,  which he had not had a chance to read yet, informing him of the decision. 

    "We are not pleased with the sales of weapons to Syria, particularly  sophisticated weapons that Russia intends to sell to Syria, weapons that may end  up in the hands of terror organizations," Sharon said.
