There's been another jihad in Tel Aviv in the Dizengoff neighborhood:
Israeli Police on Saturday entered the family home of the 29-year-old Israeli Arab suspected of carrying out Friday's deadly shooting attack in Tel Aviv in a bid to gather more information on his whereabouts. During the raid of the apartment in the central Wadi Ara area police confiscated a computer and arrested his brother for questioning, Israeli news website Walla reported.

Security officials announced in the morning that they believe the assailant is still in the Tel Aviv area, Israel's Channel 2 reported. Police forces have been dispatched to search abandoned warehouses and construction sites.

Two people were killed and at least seven wounded Friday when a gunman opened fire with a semi-automatic rifle on a pub and nearby cafe in central Tel Aviv, but the motive behind the attack was not immediately clear. Two of the injured remain in intensive care at Tel Aviv's Ichilov hospital.
Anybody who thought Tel Aviv couldn't be hit by this kind of nightmare has been proven wrong. The problem is everywhere.

With only so many far more pressing issues to worry about in this world, it turns out the Obama administration thought Netanyahu was the most worrisome:
President Barack Obama announced two years ago he would curtail eavesdropping on friendly heads of state after the world learned the reach of long-secret U.S. surveillance programs.

But behind the scenes, the White House decided to keep certain allies under close watch, current and former U.S. officials said. Topping the list was Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The U.S., pursuing a nuclear arms agreement with Iran at the time, captured communications between Mr. Netanyahu and his aides that inflamed mistrust between the two countries and planted a political minefield at home when Mr. Netanyahu later took his campaign against the deal to Capitol Hill.

The National Security Agency’s targeting of Israeli leaders and officials also swept up the contents of some of their private conversations with U.S. lawmakers and American-Jewish groups. That raised fears—an “Oh-s— moment,” one senior U.S. official said—that the executive branch would be accused of spying on Congress.

White House officials believed the intercepted information could be valuable to counter Mr. Netanyahu’s campaign. They also recognized that asking for it was politically risky. So, wary of a paper trail stemming from a request, the White House let the NSA decide what to share and what to withhold, officials said. “We didn’t say, ‘Do it,’ ” a senior U.S. official said. “We didn’t say, ‘Don’t do it.’”

Stepped-up NSA eavesdropping revealed to the White House how Mr. Netanyahu and his advisers had leaked details of the U.S.-Iran negotiations—learned through Israeli spying operations—to undermine the talks; coordinated talking points with Jewish-American groups against the deal; and asked undecided lawmakers what it would take to win their votes, according to current and former officials familiar with the intercepts.

Before former NSA contractor Edward Snowden exposed much of the agency’s spying operations in 2013, there was little worry in the administration about the monitoring of friendly heads of state because it was such a closely held secret. After the revelations and a White House review, Mr. Obama announced in a January 2014 speech he would curb such eavesdropping.
This is truly galling, but no longer shocking. So they waste tons of time and money spying on friends, and not so much spying on enemies, although the article does say they monitored Turkey's premier Erdogan, and he wasn't on a "safe" list.

Once again, tax dollars are being sorely misused.


I spotted some tweets by the disgraceful Muslim convert now writing propaganda at Marvel from a few weeks ago when the San Bernardino tragedy took place. Predictably, she tries to separate the issues by making it sound like it's 2 different belief systems here:

Unfortunately, the ideology she speaks of is still very much alive, and still practiced; the same one as she practices. All she's doing is parroting the same kind of narrative George W. Bush used, about Islam being "hijacked". And that kind of approach can be very misleading and undermining.

She even attacked the Republicans:

Oh, what's this? Moral relativism, I presume? She predictably ignores why any of their members want to keep these Muslim "migrants" out of the USA now: because of the Paris and San Bernardino bloodbaths. They're trying to act in the interests of the public's safety. Not that any of this matters to somebody as dishonest as Wilson is, unfortunately.


The supreme court dropped the bigger charge against him, but kept the smaller one:
The Supreme Court on Tuesday partially accepted Ehud Olmert’s appeal of his spring 2014 bribery convictions, but he will still become the first prime minister in history to go behind bars.

The court knocked out one of Olmert's convictions for taking an NIS 500,000 bribe, but convicted him of taking a NIS 60,000 bribe. He will serve only 18 months, rather than the six years he was originally sentenced to. Olmert was set to begin serving his sentence on February 15, 2016.
I suppose this'll have to do. He deserved far more than what he's got so far, and it's regrettable it couldn't have been a few more years. However, there is one more charge he may be facing that'll hopefully hand him more time in jail.

Olmert was asking for this, after all the harm he caused Israel during his own tenure as prime minister with his dhimmitude. Now, though it be a light sentence so far, he's paying a price.

A most repellent and embarrassing discovery was made last week, when video footage of some madmen now being dubbed "right-wing" extremists surfaced, showing them celebrating the death of the Dawabshe family at a Jewish wedding hall, and brandishing guns:
Footage released on Wednesday showed dozens of young Israeli right-wing extremists, said to be linked to the suspected perpetrators of the Dawabsha family murder, celebrating the killing at a wedding last week. The images in the clip immediately sparked wide condemnation.

The video, aired by Channel 10, shows revelers at the Jerusalem celebration waving knives, rifles, pistols and a Molotov cocktail during the wedding.

Amid the festivities, a photo of baby Ali Dawabsha, who was burned to death in the July 31 firebombing in the West Bank village of Duma, is shown being repeatedly stabbed.

The crowd in the video chants the lyrics of a song which include a verse from Judges 16:28, quoting Samson, blinded in Gaza, saying “let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes” — but changing the word Philistines to Palestine.
They distorted the context of Judges and above all, humiliated everybody with their antics that are harmful to Judaism by desecrating pictures of helpless victims of a firebombing? It's as repulsive as it all sounds. All they've done is give Israel's enemies inside and outside more ammunition to use against them. The incident's been condemned by many in the religious Zionist movement and political spectrum already. One columnist for Makor Rishon said that what the crackpots did borrowed a page from jihadists. Indeed, their behavior does seem to owe more than a bit to the kind of festivities Islamofascists hold that celebrate Jewish/infidel deaths. What kind of educators did these freaks have? You could almost wonder why they haven't converted to Islam yet. They should be banished from all sane society for the damage they've done.
