"ALL CAPS IN DEFENSE OF LIBERTY IS NO VICE."

5. Myth: "Negotiations broke down at the end of 2000 because Israeli PM Ehud Barak offered the Palestinians only "Bantustans" - disconnected islands of Palestinian sovereignty, and failed to offer Palestinian control over holy places in Jerusalem.This is popular among leftists, too - (links to: Sharon’s Dream: Gaza as Bantustan).
THIS ARGUMENT IS INTRINSICALLY ANTI-SEMITIC.
Because those who promotes this LIE are very willing to accept a "west bank" with JEWISH Bantustans.
That's right: what's somehow unacceptable for Arabs on the so-called "west bank" is perfectly fine for Jews. According to this "peace process" approach, Jews SHOULD be herded onto small settlements forever prohibited from any expansion.
IT'S AN UNJUST AND EVIL PROPOSITION.
Israelis deserve this land - most, if not all of it - for the same reason as every other nation in the world deserves its territory: THEY WON IT IN WAR.
If Arabs don't like it, then they can leave.
And if they fight back, then they should expect the same treatment at the hands of Israel as the PKK gets from Turkey and the Chechens get from Russia and the Uighurs get from China and the Basques get from Spain and the Tamils expect from Sri Lankans. And so on.
An annexed "west bank" (and a one state solution) can only happen after the Free World - the West - neutralizes the Iranian regime and eradicates Global Jihad. Then the Arabs in Judea and Samaria can live as well as the Arabs in Israel - which is better than most Arabs live anywhere in the world.
MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT THIS: there can be NO movement toward a one state solution until "local jihad" is eradicated there and in Gaza and until Global Jihad is eradicated and that can't happen until Iran is neutralized --- and that can't happen until their islam-fascist regime is replaced with on that's pro-West. Then we have to get Saudi Arabia and Pakistan under control.
Before there can be a one state solution, Iran has to have regime change, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan have to stop funding and hiding jihad, Fatah and Hamas and IJ and all their subsidiaries and affiliates have to be UTTERLY DEFEATED.
And then all the Arab and Muslim nations have to recognize so-called "Greater Israel".
Then and only then can there be peace in Samaria and Judea.
IOW: The West has the horse before the cart right now: an Arab-Israeli peace deal won't stop global jihad. And there can't be a peace deal until the major source of global jihad is neutralized.
IOW: Strength before peace. IOW: Victory before peace.
That's just the way it is. That's just the way it really is.
Those who think there can be a peace deal before victory over jihad are deluded.
Giving them Gaza did nothing but encourage more terror. Any "deal" between Israel and Fatah will bring more of the same.
That's just the way it is. That's just the way it really is.
IT'S THEIR RELIGION, STUPID!
In an election year when anger and mistrust have upended races across the country, toppling moderates and elevating white-hot partisans, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg is trying to pull politics back to the middle, injecting himself into marquee contests and helping candidates fend off the Tea Party.
New York’s billionaire mayor, whose flurry of activity is stirring a new round of speculation about his presidential ambitions, is supporting Republicans, Democrats and independents who he says are not bound by rigid ideology and are capable of compromise, qualities he says he fears have become alarmingly rare in American politics.
Next month, Mr. Bloomberg will travel to California to campaign for Meg Whitman, the eBay entrepreneur and Republican running for governor on a platform of corporate-style accountability and fiscal prudence. He visited Rhode Island on Thursday to champion Lincoln D. Chafee, a Republican turned independent who is locked in a three-way battle for the governor’s office.
And, in perhaps the mayor’s most direct confrontation with a Tea Party candidacy, he will host a fund-raiser at his Manhattan town house for Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader facing an unexpectedly forceful challenge from Sharron E. Angle, a political neophyte backed by Sarah Palin.
In his first extensive interview with a newspaper in several years, Mr. Bloomberg outlined his plans, which will include raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for candidates and represent his greatest involvement in a national election since he entered public life a decade ago.
Mr. Bloomberg described the Tea Party movement as a fad, comparing it to the short-lived burst of support for Ross Perot in 1992. The mayor suggested that the fury it had unleashed was not a foundation for leadership.
“Look, people are angry,” he said. “Their anger is understandable. Washington isn’t working. Government seems to be paralyzed and unable to solve all of our problems.”
“Anger, however, is not a government strategy,” he said. “It’s not a way to govern.”
THE ONLY WAY WE CAN LOSE IS IF THERE ARE THIRD PARTY CANDIDATES DRAINING INDEPENDENTS AWAY FOR US.
IF BLOOMBERG RUNS IN 2012, THEN HE MIGHT PLAY PEROT AND RE-ELECT OBAMA.
- BLOOMBERG REALLY HAS NOTHING TO RUN ON: BLOOMBERG HAS BEEN A LOUSY MAYOR; HE'S DONE ABSOLUTELY NO HEAVY-LIFTING; WE'VE BEEN COASTING SINCE GIULIANI WAS MAYOR, AND RUDY DID A LOT OF HEAVY-LIFTING.
- BLOOMIE IS A NANNYSTATER AND A LIBERAL AND AN APPEASER - NOT A COURAGEOUS POLITICAL LEADER.
- PALIN HAS MORE COURAGE IN HER TOENAILS THASN BLOOMIE HAS IN HIS WHOLE BEING AND HIS BANK ACCOUNTS! (EVEN ROMNEY HAS ACCOMPLISHED MORE HEAVY-LIFTING AS A BUSINESS MAN, CIVIC LEADER AND GOVERNOR.)
- THE POLICIES THEY PUSHED THROUGH CONGRESS WERE A TROJAN HORSE FOR SOCIALISM.
- AND IT'S MADE OUR ECONOMY WORSE BECAUSE SOCIALISM ALWAYS DOES MAKE AN ECONOMY WORSE.
Boehner and McConnell and Steele should put forward a bill that would give all workers a payroll tax holiday from now to April 15th 2011. And say they will pass a reduction in the payroll tax when they take power. It would be both good policy and good politics. Roubini favors a reduction in rates.
On March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here's what he said:
"The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct "Palestinian people" to oppose Zionism. For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan."
In 1974, the late Syrian President, Hafez al-Assad, declared:
"It would be fitting for us to mention to the responsible Israeli authorities that we view Palestine not just as an inseparable part of the Arab nation, but as a part of Southern Syria." In 1987, he reiterated himself at a conference in Amman, "A country named 'Palestine' has never existed." Jordanian King Hussein responded, "The appearance of the national Palestinian persona serves as a response to Israel's claim that Palestine is Jewish."
Arafat said this in 1970, with candid simplicity, told the reporter Arianna Palazzi:
"The question of borders doesn't interest us... From the Arab standpoint, we mustn't talk about borders. Palestine is nothing but a drop in an enormous ocean. Our nation is the Arabic nation that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea and beyond it..... The P.L.O. is fighting Israel in the name of Pan-Arabism. What you call "Jordan" is nothing more than Palestine."
"In the history of the world, Palestine has never existed as a nation. The region known as Palestine was ruled alternately by Rome, by Islamic and Christian crusaders, by the Ottoman Empire and, briefly, by the British after World War I. The British agreed to restore at least part of the land to the Jewish people as their ancestral homeland. It was never ruled by Arabs."
THERE IS AN ARAB STATE ON WHAT WAS ONCE BRITISH PALESTINE: IT IS CALLED JORDAN AND IT CAME INTO EXISTENCE AROUND THE SAME TIME ISRAEL DID.
FROM NOW ON, I SHALL CALL THE MADE UP COUNTRY NOW CALLED JORDAN "ARAB PALESTINE" BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT IT REALLY IS.
We have some important battles to wage this year - battles we can win, G-d willing.
After the battles comes peace.
That's why the L-rd Blesses us with strength, before we are Blessed with peace. PSALM 29:11:
The LORD will give strength to his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace.Strength comes before peace.
Victory and Peace come through strength.
I wish us all the strength we will need to win!
Our enemies will not make it easy; they will not lie down without a fight. Fight we must. Win we will.
That’s a little harsh. I’d say Norris made a rookie mistake: thinking the whole rest of the world is like her and her friends. What she regarded as a political comment is literally blasphemy to observant Muslims, a fact that she either didn’t know or shrugged off. Unfortunately, she’s paying for this mistake rather dearly — and so are a lot of innocent bystanders.A mistake, is it? Gee, that's a little harsh. I'd say Alverson is oblivious to what Islam and the Koran are built upon. For example, "When ye meet the unbelievers (in fight), smite at their necks..." -- Qur'an 47:4, and check this recent example built on that kind of mindset.
Alverson then goes on to say:
Here’s why: Probably 99.99 percent of the Muslims who heard about this and were offended by it shrugged it off or kept their feelings to themselves and their immediate circle. A handful may have protested quietly, by writing on their blogs or sending a letter to the editor. Al-Awlaki seems to be the only person who has actually made a threat, but it only takes one: The comments to every article I have read about this have consisted almost entirely of slurs on Muslims, ranging from the snarky (“There’s your religion of peace”) to the frighteningly hateful. What started as a tongue-in-cheek comment on freedom of speech has ended up bringing out the worst aspect of that freedom, the freedom to hate in public.And so, as we see here, Ms. Alverson makes the grave mistake of suggesting it was just one who made the fatwa, without even considering how many Muslims take it seriously, and almost instantly too. And, she otherwise just focuses upon the reactions by non-Muslims to the whole case, without even considering many of the threats of violence made by Islamofascists themselves. Take this, for example, and even this.
Alverson then says:
It’s hard to do this on the Internet, but sometimes you have to distinguish between crazy people and the rest of the group. Right now, with regard to Islam, some Americans are not doing a good job of this, and Norris, without really meaning to, has made things worse.Things have been made worse long before Norris supposedly did. It is sad that what we have here is someone with no ability to research the history of Islam properly.
Alverson then says in the comments:
I’m a former newspaper reporter and a big believer in freedom of speech, even offensive speech. But as [...] says, you have to think before you speak.If that's the best "analogy" she could come up with, it's the worst. No observant Judaist would ever react violently if you ate a cheeseburger in their household, and wouldn't consider the premises permanently desecrated either, and it's forbidden in Judaism to do that.
Drawing a picture of the Prophet Mohammed is not just mocking Islam, it is blasphemy in the eyes of observant Moslems. You may think that’s absurd, but that doesn’t give you a license to go stomping all over their religion just for the fun of it. If you do that, there will be pushback, because people take these things seriously.
Here’s the best analogy I can come up with: Although I’m not Jewish, I rented a room from a conservative Jewish woman for almost a year. She kept a kosher house. Now, it’s perfectly legal for me to eat a cheeseburger or a ham sandwich anywhere I want, but out of respect for her, I did not bring them into the house. It’s not just about me. It’s about coexisting with other people whose beliefs I respect, despite not sharing them.
Another commentor on the post, possibly from Europe, said:
Respect is a two-way street, Brigid. Religions and their adherents have no compunctions about denouncing the perceived flaws of non-believers, opposing sects and modern society in general, often in virulent, disrespectful ways. Saying “yes, but to them it’s *blasphemous*” (which means what, extra super-annoying?) could be applied to the fundamentalist Christian and Muslim perspective on homosexuality as well. Does seeing two men walk hand-in-hand warrant or excuse a violent ‘pushback’ (nice euphemism there!), as is happening more and more often here in the Netherlands (which has both gay marriage and a sizeable Muslim minority)?I like that last part. It shows what you can do for a friend who's religiously observant, and that they really don't have much of a problem with you using the electricity.
Being a non-believer myself, I find it strange that being religious should permit believers to be allowed harsh, uncompromising positions on a vast range of hot-button issues yet also shield them from direct critiques of said views. That way, freedom of religion trumps freedom from religion, resulting in a situation where professing adherence to a god-based worldview gives one a licence to insult others freely and claim offence at any act of peaceful defiance. Religion is not the sole purveyor of passionate morality, nor does guarantee it – so I would argue against a statement as inane as “…because there are few things as deeply felt as [religion].”
The reason Everybody Draw Mohammed Day ‘went viral’, I think, is because it’s an emminently egalitarian, nonviolent way to mock fundamentalist Islam, to poke fun at it. Excusing the implied or explicit threat of violence in response to mockery, satire or spirited opposition of any peaceful kind is imbecilic beyond belief.
(addendum 1: maybe less so in the US of A, but here in Europe and in vast swaths of the rest of the world, we don’t need to be reminded that Muslims are ‘real people’ since we see and interact with them every day)
(addendum 2: how does your Kosher House analogy apply to the internet? Or say, the Danish cartoon controversy? Shouldn’t Muslims worldwide and in Denmark have STFU since its the Danes’ corner of the world and they’re the local majority, and drawing whatever you like is part of their ‘house rules’?)
(addendum 3: I once visited an Orthodox Israeli girl in Tel Aviv. Kosher food, strict observance of the Shabbat with no usage of electricity, all that jazz. Me being a goy had an unexpected upside for her: she asked me if could make her a cup of tea on Saturday – now that was coexisting with mutual respect.)
But now, here's where Ms. Alverson really blows the tire big time:
d, I am not afraid of Islam. What I am afraid of is feeding the rampant Islamophobia that I am seeing more and more of in the media and even in people around me.Hmm. She could've admitted to being a leftist as well, because I assume that's exactly what she is. And, a]she even implies this is merely the result of some mental illness, and religion can have nothing to do with it, b]acts naive in thinking Awlaki, the mentor of Nidal Malik Hasan, will actually forget this (did Khomeini forget about Rushdie? Not until his death he didn't, and his followers certainly didn't either) or even the other Muslims he's incited against Norris, c]does not think Muslims can organize, and d]thinks, along with another contributor there, that this is merely the actions "of a few" without even considering the teachings of the Koran. Naive thinking at its most utter tragic.
I’m fine with saying “This cartoonist is a victim of psychotic fundamentalists” (I try to avoid the capslock key) as long as we keep the word “psychotic” in there. It’s important. Fundamentalism alone is not a reason to call for the death of someone half a world away and expect them to be killed.
Here’s my armchair analysis of what happened: The cleric in Yemen was scoring some political points. It’s easy to denounce Norris because what she called for is, in fact, an abomination in their religion, just as it was easy for her to call for an “Everyone Draw Mohammed Day” because prohibitions on drawing a particular person are an abomination to our notion of free speech. His rant was more violently worded than hers, but basically, it’s propaganda. I don’t think he seriously intended anyone to kill her. I bet he forgot about her an hour after he said it.
The problem is that there are plenty of unhinged people out there, and it’s possible that one will take the cleric’s words seriously. Mixing mental illness with something as deeply felt as religion leads to trouble, and that’s not exclusive to Moslems.
That’s why Norris is in danger. I seriously doubt there is an organized movement to eliminate her. What she and the FBI are probably worried about is the possibility that Awaki’s rant will set someone off.
In other words, what JK said: The whole group should not be judged by the actions of a few—and looking at the reactions to this incident, I’m afraid that’s exactly what is happening.
Let this serve as an example of what the mindset of the leftist MSM can be like, spectacularly failing to do any proper research on any religion.
It's very sad that Norris has gone into hiding, in America, of all places. It's really not a good example to set, since, if we're to stop the Islamist threat, we can't let ourselves be cowed.
Update: speaking of Nidal Hasan, here's a video for the Fort Hood Memorial Convention:
Via Big Peace.
AND THERE'S NOT A ZIONIST NEOCON RETHUGLICAN IN SIGHT, EITHER:
Mauritania has launched a military operation against militants linked to al-Qaeda along the border with Mali, officials in the two countries say.
Some unconfirmed reports say the fighting has moved across the border into Mali itself.
Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has been behind numerous attacks in north-west Africa.
France believes the group is behind the kidnapping of seven people, including five French citizens, in Niger.
Initial reports quoted Mauritanian security sources saying the clashes were taking place near the border with Mali's Timbuktu region.
A Malian security source was later quoted by AFP as saying fighting was taking place in Mali, at Hassissidi, about 100km (60 miles) north of Timbuktu, but this could not be confirmed.
AL QAEDA IS NOT IN WEST AFRICA BECAUSE OF BUSH OR WEST BANK SETTLEMENTS OR GAZA EMBARGOES OR ANYTHING WE HAVE DONE.
THEY ARE THERE BECAUSE SPREADING JIHAD IS WHAT THEY DO.
AND THEY'VE BEEN DOING IT EVER SINCE MOHAMED.

(NOTE - ONE EXAMPLE:

Do not consider it a breach of faith to kill them, the breach of faith would be to let them carry on.
They have violated our covenant with them, so how can you be held guilty against the violators?
How can they have any pact when we are obscure and they are prominent?
Now we are humble, beside them, as if we were wrong and they were right!
On December 30, 1066 (9 Tevet 4827), a Muslim mob stormed the royal palace in Granada, which was at that time in al-Andalus, assassinated Jewish vizier Joseph ibn Naghrela and massacred most of the Jewish population of the city.
More than 1,500 Jewish families, numbering 4,000 persons, fell in one day.
The image above shows a Jew reading the torah in Al-Andalus.
BOTTOM-LINE: MOHAMMEDANISM IS TERRORISM.
WHAT'S WORSE: EITHER BY DESIGN OR BY NAIVETE AND INCOMPETENCE, UNDER OBAMA, RUSSIA HAS GOTTEN STRONGER AND THE USA AND OUR ALLIES HAVE GOTTEN WEAKER.
WE CAN BEGIN TO PUT A HALT TO THIS SLIDE THIS NOVEMBER: VOTE GOP!
From Obama’s speech to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on September 15, 2010:
“So let me close by saying this. Long before America was even an idea, this land of plenty was home to many peoples. To British and French, to Dutch and Spanish, to Mexican — (applause) — to countless Indian tribes. We all shared the same land. We didn’t always get along. But over the centuries, what eventually bound us together — what made us all Americans — was not a matter of blood, it wasn’t a matter of birth. It was faith and fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
The Preamble to the U.S. Declaration of Independence:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Obama is guilty of a Kinsley gaffe - THAT IS: accidentally revealing what he really thinks and this why:
1 - the moon god of muslims doesn't endow rights.
2 - socialists believe rights are given by the government; (the founders knew that God endows us with rights and we cede part of the to construct a government)
Obama's gaffe reveals he is a crypto-muslim and/or a socialist.
Like everything else he does.
Her name could be next to “entitlement” in the dictionary. Ridiculous.

British Police Hold 5 on Terror Charges as Pope Visits
British police arrested five men early Friday on terrorism charges related to the visit here of Pope Benedict XVI, Scotland Yard said.
The police spokeswoman said the arrests were made at a business in central London at 5:45 a.m. and that five men, between 26 and 50 years old, were in custody “on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.”
The arrests came after detectives conducted “initial inquiries,” the spokeswoman said, without elaborating. Police officers subsequently searched offices in central London and homes in north and east London, but no “hazardous materials” were reported to have been found.
There was no immediate word on the identity of the suspects, although the BBC reported that the men were not British citizens and Sky News said they were Algerians.
The five mixed nationality men are 26, 27, 36, 40 and 50 years old. They were arrested in an armed operation at business premises where searches are continuing.
Residential premises in north and east London are also being searched. Officers have not found any hazardous items.
It is not clear whether the investigations relate to a plot against the Pope himself, an element of the visit or events or other matters that may be connected to the visit.
D'YA THINK MAYBE THEY JUST MIGHT BE ALL MOOOOOOOZLIMS!?
WASHINGTON – Several members of Congress are opposing the planned American arms sale to Saudi Arabia and have written US President Barack Obama to express their concerns.Now if Saudi Arabia gets arms, what could they do with them one day? Could they declare war against another Islamic country, and could they even attack Israel too? Yes, they could do that, and mustn't be underestimated. That's why as much opposition is needed to this planned sale - and sellout.
“Saudi Arabia is not deserving of our aid, and by arming them with advanced American weaponry we are sending the wrong message,” wrote Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-NY), the lead author of the letter.
“Saudi Arabia has a history of financing terrorism, is a nation that teaches hate of Christians and Jews to their schoolchildren, and offered no help to the US as gas prices surged during the spike in oil prices.”
The deal reportedly includes up to $60 billion in sales of advanced fighter jets and helicopters, including F- 15s, Apaches and Black Hawks. The deal could also include expanded missile defenses and naval capabilities for Riyadh.
Once the administration officially informs Congress of the details, which is expected to take place in the next few weeks, the body will have 30 days to pass a resolution blocking the sale.
Fellow Democrats Shelley Berkley of Nevada and Christopher Carney of Pennsylvania joined Weiner in signing the letter to the president, and several Republican members have also separately voiced criticism of the deal.
The High Court issued an immediate stop work order Thursday against builders of a mosque at Jelazoun near Beit El.There's also another mosque mentioned near Yitzhar, with the challenge being to know who are the people behind its illegal construction.
The order was issued in response to a motion filed by Regavim, an NGO that specializes in fighting illegal Arab construction. The motion was originally filed as what Regavim calls a “mirror motion” following the state's destruction of a synagogue at El Matan. A “mirror motion” is one that is filed against an Arab building after a nearby Jewish building is razed or slated for demolition, forcing the state to take similar action against the Arab building or to try and explain why it only enforces the law against Jews.
Regavim is doing the right thing to oppose the construction of mosques like that one on this side of the globe. It's been a problem here long before it became a problem in America.

On Wednesday, top Democrats and strategists for Mr. Cuomo, acknowledging that Mr. Paladino has tapped into genuine anger at Albany, said they would move to turn the focus away from that message and onto the man, who they say is unfit for the job.
In an interview, the Democratic state party chairman, Jay Jacobs, described Mr. Paladino as a “wacko,” and the Cuomo campaign promised to release a tough attack ad within days that would portray Mr. Paladino as unacceptable to New Yorkers.
They intend to keep reminding the public of his more outrageous moments, like his circulation of bigoted and pornographic e-mails and his likening of the Assembly speaker, Sheldon Silver, to the Antichrist. And they said they expected Mr. Paladino to continue to supply them with ammunition.
“The best spokesperson to win votes for Andrew Cuomo is Carl Paladino,” said Phil Singer, a consultant to the Cuomo campaign. “Our strategy is to just let him talk.”

France complains about EU criticism of Gypsy deportationsNOW SARKOZY KNOWS HOW ISRAEL FEELS NEARLY EVERY WEEK WHEN SHE IS UNFAIRLY COMPARED TO THE NAZIS.
President Sarkozy's office calls EU Justice Commissioner comments comparing French behavior to WII atrocities as unacceptable.
President Nicolas Sarkozy's office fired back Wednesday at European Commission criticism of France's crackdown on Gypsies, or Roma, saying some of the complaints are unacceptable.
A day earlier, EU Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding had called France's expulsions of Roma to Eastern Europe "a disgrace" — as well as something she "thought that Europe would not have to witness again after the second World War."
BTW: JUST TO REFRESH REDING'S MEMORY: EUROPE EXPELLED/RELOCATED NEARLY 20 MILLION GERMANS AFTER THE WAR. WIKI:
From 1944 until 1948, between 13.5 and 16.5 million Germans were expelled, evacuated or fled from Central and Eastern Europe. The Statistisches Bundesamt estimates the loss of life at 2.1 million SO THIS IS A CASE OF THE HUGE EU KETTLE CALLING THE ITTY-BITTY FRENCH POT BLACK.
In an escalation of tensions yesterday, militants fired two phosphorous mortar shells into Israel from the Gaza Strip.WHAT DO ARABS GAIN FROM THIS EXCHANGE?
A total of nine mortar shells were fired yesterday, all falling in fields in the Eshkol Regional Council, causing no casualties or damage.
Israel responded by sending jets to bomb a smuggling tunnel in the Philadelphi Route. Palestinian sources said one person was killed and two injured in the attack.
WHAT DO MUSLIMS GAIN?
TO CONTINUE DOING THIS THEY MUST BE INSANE. LITERALLY.
THEY'RE NOT RADICALS PERVERTING A GREAT RELIGION.
THEY'RE SOMEWHAT NORMAL PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN PERVERTED BY A HIDEOUS MARTIAL CREED - FOR GENERATIONS.
THE ULTIMATE ANSWER IS NOT ACCOMMODATION OR APPEASEMENT.
IT'S DOING WHAT WE DID TO NAZI GERMANY: WE DENAZIFIED IT.
WE NEED TO DE-ISLAMIFY DAR AL ISLAM.
WE START BY ERADICATING JIHADISM AND ALL JIHADISTS.
WE CONTINUE BY DE-ISLAMIFYING ALL MUSLIMS BECAUSE ISLAM IS AT ITS CORE A JIHADIST CREED AND ITS FOUNDER A GENOCIDAL TERRORIST.
MUSLIMS NEED TO BE LIBERATED FROM ISLAM EVERY BIT AS MUCH AS THE AMERICAN NEGRO NEEDED TO BE LIBERATED FROM SLAVERY, AND AS MUCH AS GERMANS AND EUROPEANS NEEDED TO BE LIBERATED FROM NAZISM, AND RUSSIANS AND CHINESE DID FROM SOCIALISM.
AS MUCH AS THE ISRAELITES NEEDED TO BE LIBERATED FROM EQYPT.
No wonder Reid and Pelosi and Obama like him!
A Western-backed alliance in Lebanon's government accused the militant group Hezbollah and its allies Wednesday of trying to take the country back to the days when Syria dominated this tiny Arab nation.
The alliance is struggling to maintain its political clout as Hezbollah and its patrons in Damascus gain strength in Lebanon. The March 14 coalition is named for a day of massive demonstrations in 2005 when millions turned out and forced Syria to leave Lebanon after nearly 30 years.
"Lebanon is being subjected at the present time to a wild coup attempt that aims to take us back to the time before the March 14, 2005 independence uprising," Fares Soeid, a senior official with the alliance told reporters Wednesday.
Hezbollah and the March 14 coalition are uneasy partners in Lebanon's unity government.
The comments come at a fractious time for the country, largely because of an ongoing investigation into the 2005 assassination of former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri, that his son, the current prime minister, once laid at the feet of Syria.
But in a stunning reversal earlier this month, Hariri said it was a mistake to blame Damascus for his father's death.
Although officials have not said it openly, analysts say the rapprochement appears to be an acknowledgment that Hariri is too weak to govern Lebanon without Syrian support.
UNDER OBAMA, IRAN HAS GOTTEN STRONGER AND STRONGER - AND SO HAVE IRAN'S STOOGES (SYRIA AND HAMAS AND HIZBALLAH).
WHEN THE IRANIAN REGIME WAS ON THE ROPES, OBAMA LET THEM OFF.
AND HE HAS BEEN TOUGHER ON ISRAEL THAN ON THE ARABS.
IF OBAMA WAS REALLY A CRYPTO-MUSLIM TRYING TO SECRETLY FOSTER GLOBAL STEALTH JIHAD - AND WEAKENING THE USA AND THE FREE WORLD, WOULD HE BE DOING ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY?
A Venezuelan state airline has canceled its flight to Iran and Syria, which began three years ago and drew concerns from U.S. intelligence officials that it was perhaps being used for terrorist activities, Fox News reported on its web site.
"I am sorry, but we are no longer flying to Tehran and I do not know when the flights will resume. It was a flight that left Caracas on Tuesdays, but it no longer does," said Jenny Gil Romero, who handles international departures for Conviasa, the national airline that operates the flight, in a message to Fox News.
The news agency said the message was in response to efforts it made to buy round-trip tickets on the regularly scheduled flight between Caracas, Damascus and Tehran. The flight generally departs every other Tuesday.
Despite being listed as a regular commercial route, intelligence analysts with both the CIA and the nation of Israel said it was impossible to buy a ticket and travel without getting approval from the Venezuelan or Iranian government, Fox News said.
THEY EITHER WANT TO GO UNDER THE RADAR, OR THEY'VE ALREADY SMUGGLED IN WHAT THEY WANTED TO.
FARC AND THE TALIBAN LIKE THE DRUG BUSINESS AS MUCH AS THEY LIKE TERROR.
IN CHAVEZ, THE JIHADO-NARCO-TERRORISTS AND THE LEFTIST-NARCO-TERRORISTS BOTH HAVE AN ALLY, A FACILITATOR.
I DON'T THINK IT IS A COINCIDENCE THAT THE DRUG WARS IN MEXICO HAVE TAKEN ON A VERY AFGHANI LOOK OF LATE.
Paladino Promises a Relentless Attack Against Cuomo
“We’re going to charge, charge, charge,” Mr. Paladino said in a wide-ranging 40-minute interview with The New York Times on Wednesday morning. ...IOW: PALADINO KNOWS WHAT CUOMO DID LAST SUMMER.
echoing a widespread conservative argument, he asserted that Mr. Cuomo had “lit the fuse” on the nation’s housing crisis by pushing to lower lending standards at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the two quasi-public mortgage giants.
Asked what he saw as Mr. Cuomo’s vulnerabilities, Mr. Paladino replied: “His immaturity. His ego. I think insular is a very good word for him.”
Mr. Paladino did not elaborate in great detail, but said the first time he noticed those characteristics was when he saw that Mr. Cuomo, arriving at an event, waited for his car door to be opened rather than open it himself, and did the same when entering a building.
Mr. Paladino dismissed concerns that the Republican Party would be rocked by his nomination, saying he had already fielded a congratulatory call from the party’s state chairman, Edward Cox. “We’re on the same page,” Mr. Paladino said. “He’s getting on the bus with us and we’re all going to the dance together.”
AND WHAT OF RE-STYLED MAN-OF-THE-PEOPLE ANDY CUOMO?
Attorney General Andrew M. Cuomo’s campaign for governor is reporting more than $9 million raised in the first half of the year, with $23.6 million on hand.
I THINK MOST PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH THE ESTABLISHMENT.
I THINK MOST PEOPLE WANT A FRESH FACE AND A NO-NONSENSE APPROACH.
I THINK MOST NY'ERS WILL VOTE PALADINO.

- THE DAILY KOS KROWD HELPED NED LAMONT GET THE US SENATE NOMINATION IN CONNECTICUT.
- NED LAMONT LOST THE GENERAL ELECTION TO LIEBERMAN - A MUCH MORE CENTRIST CANDIDATE.
- WILL RUBIO AND ANGLE AND O'DONNELL LOSE LIKE LAMONT DID?
- I HOPE NOT, BUT THEY MIGHT.
- WE ON THE RIGHT HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT WE NEED TO WIN THE WAR - NOT JUST BATTLES; WE NEED TO RETAKE BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS - AND NOT JUST WIN PRIMARIES.
I AM PRAYING RUBIO AND ANGLE AND O'DONNELL WIN. AND TOOMEY AND MCMAHON AND FIORINA. AND JOHNSON. AND KIRK. AND ROSSI.
I AM PRAYING HARD.
IT'S GONNA BE CHRIS COONS VERSUS CHRISTINE O'DONNELL.
I WISH HER WELL.
I HOPE SHE WINS.
HE'S GOT A VERY IMPRESSIVE CV AND HE HAS GOOD TV SKILLS.
SHE HAS NEITHER.
ALL SHE HAS IS RIGHT-WING CRED AND TONS OF BAGGAGE.
IF SHE AND ANGLE LOSE, THEN WE CANNOT WIN THE SENATE - A HUGE LOSS FOR THE NATION AND FREE WORLD.
AS I POSTED EARLIER, I THINK THE RIGHT NOMINATING HER IS LIKE THE LEFT NOMINATING NED LAMONT.
I HOPE I AM WRONG.
SHE HAD BETTER GET HER CRAP TOGETHER IF SHE'S GONNA HAVE ANY CHANCE AT WINNING.
(YEAH: I THINK IT'S EASIER FOR A RIGHT-WINGER TO GET THE NOMINATION THAN WIN A GENERAL ELECTION!)

Why Did Cordoba Project Change It's Name To Park 51, When It's Address is 45 47 Park?HERE'S MY RESPONSE: Isaiah 51 (New International Version):
Good question, huh? I've wondered about this for awhile.
Cordoba House changed its name to Park 51 which is odd since the address of the location is 45 47 Park Place.Look to the Koran-the book of islamic conquest
Qur'an CHAPTER 51, Verses 45-47 explains all:51:45 And they were unable to arise, nor could they defend themselves. 51:46 And [We destroyed] the people of Noah before; indeed, they were a people defiantly disobedient. 51:47 And the heaven We constructed with strength, and indeed, We are [its] expander.The numbered Qur'an verses celebrating thematch up to the Park 51: 45-46-47 address.
Everlasting Salvation for Zion1 "Listen to me, you who pursue righteousness
and who seek the LORD :
Look to the rock from which you were cut
and to the quarry from which you were hewn;
2 look to Abraham, your father,
and to Sarah, who gave you birth.
When I called him he was but one,
and I blessed him and made him many.
3 The LORD will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the LORD.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
thanksgiving and the sound of singing.
4 "Listen to me, my people;
hear me, my nation:
The law will go out from me;
my justice will become a light to the nations.
5 My righteousness draws near speedily,
my salvation is on the way,
and my arm will bring justice to the nations.
The islands will look to me
and wait in hope for my arm.
6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
look at the earth beneath;
the heavens will vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment
and its inhabitants die like flies.
But my salvation will last forever,
my righteousness will never fail.
7 "Hear me, you who know what is right,
you people who have my law in your hearts:
Do not fear the reproach of men
or be terrified by their insults.
8 For the moth will eat them up like a garment;
the worm will devour them like wool.
But my righteousness will last forever,
my salvation through all generations."
9 Awake, awake! Clothe yourself with strength,
O arm of the LORD;
awake, as in days gone by,
as in generations of old.
Was it not you who cut Rahab to pieces,
who pierced that monster through?
10 Was it not you who dried up the sea,
the waters of the great deep,
who made a road in the depths of the sea
so that the redeemed might cross over?
11 The ransomed of the LORD will return.
They will enter Zion with singing;
everlasting joy will crown their heads.
Gladness and joy will overtake them,
and sorrow and sighing will flee away.
12 "I, even I, am he who comforts you.
Who are you that you fear mortal men,
the sons of men, who are but grass,
13 that you forget the LORD your Maker,
who stretched out the heavens
and laid the foundations of the earth,
that you live in constant terror every day
because of the wrath of the oppressor,
who is bent on destruction?
For where is the wrath of the oppressor?
14 The cowering prisoners will soon be set free;
they will not die in their dungeon,
nor will they lack bread.
15 For I am the LORD your God,
who churns up the sea so that its waves roar—
the LORD Almighty is his name.
16 I have put my words in your mouth
and covered you with the shadow of my hand—
I who set the heavens in place,
who laid the foundations of the earth,
and who say to Zion, 'You are my people.' "
Rise up, O Jerusalem,
you who have drunk from the hand of the LORD
the cup of his wrath,
you who have drained to its dregs
the goblet that makes men stagger.
18 Of all the sons she bore
there was none to guide her;
of all the sons she reared
there was none to take her by the hand.
19 These double calamities have come upon you—
who can comfort you?—
ruin and destruction, famine and sword—
who can console you?
20 Your sons have fainted;
they lie at the head of every street,
like antelope caught in a net.
They are filled with the wrath of the LORD
and the rebuke of your God.
21 Therefore hear this, you afflicted one,
made drunk, but not with wine.
22 This is what your Sovereign LORD says,
your God, who defends his people:
"See, I have taken out of your hand
the cup that made you stagger;
from that cup, the goblet of my wrath,
you will never drink again.
23 I will put it into the hands of your tormentors,
who said to you,
'Fall prostrate that we may walk over you.'
And you made your back like the ground,
like a street to be walked over."
Although he is a liberal on nearly all social issues, he can be counted on as far as national security policy and many fiscal issues.
Lieberman is infinitely better than Ned Lamont would've been - and Lamont would've been elected had not Joe sought and won election as an independent.
It is better to have a liberal you can count on on the most important issues, than a liberal you cannot count on at all.
The same is true of Castle: he is better than the Democrat alternative.
And only he can win the general - and beat Delanware's Democrat nominee.
That's why - in a way - a vote for Christine O'Donnell is a vote for Ned Lamont.
COMPLETE ROUND UP HERE.
Update on 11 September: Swedish Socialists encourage muslims to carve swastika on politicians' head:
"If Swedes want Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo to turn into Scandinavia's Beirut, with clan wars, honour killings and gang rapes, we (the Danes) can always put a gate into the Oresund Bridge!" So speaks Pia Kjersgaard, leader of the Danish People's Party, on a visit to Sweden. Malmo is already known as Malmostan for its muslim attacks on old people and Jews. Jews are leaving because the Mayor of the town is pro-islam and anti-Israel: he is a nazi, basically. He encourages the attacks on Jews. But in general, the Swedes are not getting a handle on the mess they have for an immigration policy: their former "integration" minister was Mona Sahlin, a marxist, law-breaking hypocrite.From Gates of Vienna and here and this from 2004!

Even worse, Amanpour — with not a shred of evidence — claimed that mosque opponents are taking the position that al-Qaeda is building the Ground Zero mosque. Huh? Is anyone making that argument? She also takes as fact that the Ground Zero incident was ”whipped up by certain political interests.”Nobody is saying that al Qaeda is the one building it, but let us be clear: they'd want it built, and it would be a victory for them as much as any other mosque built throughout the world. And the imam Abdul Rauf has already given clear signs he supports their kind of atrocities, as well as those of Hamas.
ABC News is antiquated, and doesn't deserve an audience, and Amanpour should become a has-been due to this latest dumb stunt of hers.

IMAM RAUF: RIPPING OFF TAXPAYERS COURTESY OF THE CORRUPT NJ/HUDSON COUNTY DEMOCRAT MACHINE AND.... SENATOR BOB MENENDEZ
Alleged mortgage fraud, housing fundsTHE LIBERALS ARE SO GENEROUS WITH TAXPAYER MONEY - ESPECIALLY TO POTHER LEFTISTS AND JIHADISTS.
According to The Record, Rauf met with U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) when he was mayor in Union City, and also requested the help of former Hudson County Executive Robert C. Janiszewski around 1991. After falling on tough financial times, he allegedly made a pitch to them for state funds to renovate three of his properties.
He reportedly received $80,000 in city funds, $384,000 from the Union City’s Community Development Agency, $1.3 million in construction loans from the Hudson County’s affordable-housing trust fund, and $630,900 from the state.
IF RAUF IS AN UPSTANDING AND SINCERE MODERATE, THEN SO WAS MOHAMED.
This video, which has not been shown in the UK, shows how the British police deal with English protesters and how they stood by while muslims burned the Stars and Stripes on 9/11/2010! How there is now one law for muslims and another for Brits who love their country! Burning a photocopied picture of the black flag of jihad is a racist hate-crime, burning the Stars and Stripes - well, just another day babysitting the islamosavages!!From The Iconoclast.
After 9/11, in the UK, I started to learn about islam. Hindus in the part of London that I lived always said: "The muslims have a continual internal conflict between sunni and shia. There are sunni areas in London and shia areas". Gradually I began to notice: the big black flags of the shahaada hung from shia mosques in my area, green sunni flags in other areas.
|Croats - who joined with muslims against the Serbs, at the start of the Balkan War, in the 1990's|
Reading this article at Atlas Shrugs today, the final piece has fallen into place. Rauf, of the Ground Zero insult, is a Sufi, which is a sect of shia islam: he has planted the shia black shahaada flag of jihad in New York. Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is funding the attacks on Serbs and other Europeans by their sunni nazi muslims from Bosnia and Kosovo as well as from sunni Pakistan. Europe will be part of Saudi Arabia, America will be part of the Iranian sphere of influence. Rather like a parody of the US and Russian spheres of influence, staked out during the Cold War.
The West has been carved like a dead chicken, assisted by the slavering greed of our leaders!
A man hurried out of the bathroom and out of the hotel... a few hours later he was captured in Ørsteds park about 1/2 a mile from the hotel.
The police held him on the ground for about 4 hours until a bomb squad robot could shoot a small fanny pack he had around his waist.
Turns out it contained an MP3 player - not even a boom box! I
n the first stages of the investigation authorities tried to downplay the terror angle... perhaps it was just a suicidal weirdo.
But as more information has trickled out to the media it becomes clear to me that the Danish police have captured an experienced professional terrorist.
The concensus among experts is that the mystery bomber probably was planning to send a letter bomb to Jyllands Posten - publishers of the muhammad cartoon series. (Had he posted it Friday it would have detonated on 9/11).
He most likely was not a suicide bomber as he had purchased a bus ticket to leave for Belgium later that same Friday.
He was travelling with authentic Belgian identity papers that belong to someone else... he is 169 cm tall... perhaps North African... speaks French, German and English... his French was good enough to convince a Frenchman he met at the hotel that he was from Luxembourg... in the few days he was in Copenhagen he used 3 different identities and changed his appearance at least 3 times... he had no mobil phone... used no credit cards.
It turns out he used a high quality prosthetic leg (great hiding place!) which authorities hoped would lead to his identity - if he used his real ID as a patient.
It turns out he had removed the serial numbers from the internal frame of the leg.
The man is now being held in isolation - Denmark's own private Guantanamo - he is not cooperating with invesatigators and the police are not allowed to interrogate him until he is charged and equipped with a lawyer.
Who is this person? A rogue agent acting on his own? Perhaps. But I believe he is part of a network - perhaps the same Belgian al Qaeda cell that assasinated Ahmed Shah Massoud.

The Obama administration is set to notify Congress of plans to offer advanced aircraft to Saudi Arabia worth up to $60 billion, the largest U.S. arms deal ever, and is in talks with the kingdom about potential naval and missile-defense upgrades that could be worth tens of billions of dollars more.TO FIGHT IRAN - THEY SAY.
BUT THEY WILL GET THERE TOO LATE FOR THAT PURPOSE.
COULD THEY BE USED AGAINST ISRAEL?
IF SAUDI ARABS WERENT FINANCING JIHAD AND "RADICAL" MADRASSAS, THEN I WOULDN'T CARE AS MUCH.
BUT THE HOUSE OF SAUD IS DOUBLE-DEALING US --- JUST LIKE THE PAKISTANIS AND KARZAI AND TURKEY AND... HMMM... D'YA SEE A PATTERN HERE!?
YES: TAQIYYA. WITH A LITTLE HUDNA THROWN IN FOR GOOD MEASURE.
THAT'S WHY I'M BETTING THAT THIS WEAPON SALE WILL COME BACK TO BITE US.
When someone criticizes Red China, they reply that Mao wasn't a true socialist.
When someone criticizes Cuba or Zimbabwe or North Korea or Kampuchea you hear the same thing about Fidel and Mugabe and Kim and Pol Pot.
And so on. As if the only reason these socialist countries were hell-holes was that their leaders had PERVERTED TRUE SOCIALISM.
Which is absurd - total denial.
Our president said the 9/11 attackers were a small band of sorry men who had perverted Islam. We hear this from a lot of folks who argue that the radicals aren't true or good Muslims; they are perverts.
This is no different than the leftists who defend socialism by arguing Stalin and Pol Pot weren't true socialists. IT'S ABSURD. Our president and the liberals running the MSM are just as absurd - and are either in denial about what true Islam really is, or they know and WANT the enemy to win.
Muhammad practiced TRUE ISLAM, and he was no moderate; he was as "radical" as Bin Laden - no more, no less.
REPEAT: Those who emulate Muhammad --- who the liberals call "RADICALS WHO HAVE PERVERTED TRUE ISLAM" are practicing a form of Islam no more perverted than Muhammad's.
Saying the jihadists who committed 9/11 are "not true Muslims" is false, a lie, absurd.
IT'S DENIAL DENIAL DENIAL.
True Islam is what made Afghanistan hell - and IRAN, and it's what's ruining Pakistan and Iraq and every other place its infestation has taken root. And it is what motivates Bin Laden and KSM and Awlaki and the shoebomber and the underwear bomber and the Times Square Bomber.
WANT PEACE AND FREEDOM?
Then you must fight Muhammad's Islam - "TRUE" Islam.
You cannot marginalize the jihado-terrorists within Islam anymore than you can marginalize Muhammad. It's a strategy that is bound to fail.
