Obama’s Diplomacy Endangers Israel.
President Obama's policy of direct diplomacy with Iran may buy Tehran enough time to produce nuclear weapons, Shabtai Shavit, former chief of the Mossad intelligence agency, warned: "I don't believe there is a political solution which can be achieved through negotiations with Iran." "My concern is that until Obama finishes his learning curve of the subject, the Iranians are going to have maybe the first or even more nuclear bombs." United Nations officials acknowledged on Thursday that Iran has built up a stockpile of enough enriched uranium for one nuclear bomb. The new figures come in a report from the International Atomic Energy Agency, the UN’s nuclear watchdog.
Iran is Developing A-bomb Delivery Systems. Iranian Deputy Defence Minister Ahmad Vahidi said the country has built an unmanned surveillance aircraft, which can reach Israel.
NuclearAccording to UN nuclear agency, samples taken from a Syrian site have revealed new traces of processed uranium.
What is “Really Matter” for Kadima? "Tonight's meeting did not get me closer to sitting in the government or give me the answers I was looking for on the issues that really matter," Livni said after the meeting with Netanyahu. – Why is creation of another Islamic terror state on Jewish land more important for Kadima, party was formed by self-serving political traitors from Labor and Likud, than the national inspiration and security of Jewish people?

We are ALL in Range Now: An Iranian satellite was launched into space not long ago. Some spin-masters immediately stated: “This test tells us they have not yet mastered long-range multistage rocket technology”. The technology Iran is using can be easily changed into long-range ballistic missile systems. This is the message the Iranians have sent. Must Israel be the only country that worries about nuclear Iran?
Lame Apology of the Delusional President. "Whatever will happen in the future, we shall not repeat the mistakes we made in leaving Gaza," Peres said in a question and answer session with a group of American Jewish leaders. "It should have been done otherwise. I was for leaving Gaza. I consider myself as one of the persons mistaken." (At the same time he still advocates the two-state solution. I am sure that he will make the same lame and meaningless apology when rockets, G-d forbid, fall on Jerusalem from the West Bank.)
Another Smear Campaign has Failed. At the request of the Royal Court a Jordanian parliamentary delegation has indefinitely postponed a planned trip to Hague meant to launch against Israeli leaders for alleged war crimes during Operation Cast Lead.
UN Helps Hamas to Arm. Hamas took possession of seven tons of unexploded ordnance that the UN had collected in Gaza for safe disposal since the end of the war. The ordnance included three 2,000-pound bombs and eight 500-pound bombs as well as many artillery shells. (By its presence and interference the UN only helps anti-Israel terror flourish!)
Livni: Give up “Half of Land of Israel” for Peace. Tzipi Livni, who hopes to be appointed Israel's prime minister-designate, told a convention of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Organizations, "we need to give up half of the Land of Israel," (Israeli forces forcibly evicted 8,500 Israelis living in the Gaza communities - many of whom remain homeless to this day - and opened the way for Hamas' takeover.) using a term that refers to biblical borders that include today's Israel, the West Bank and Gaza. (…and Trans-Jordan, 82% of Eretz-Israel, the land Jews were robbed of in 1922! Did it bring peace? Israel needs people in leadership who are prepared to reunite Eretz-Israel, not traitors who are proposing the national sell-off!)
Quote of the Week: “For the first time in many years, definitely since the Oslo peace process started in 1993, a significant majority of the Knesset does not believe in Oslo, and does not believe in the disengagement from Gaza in 2005-in short, does not believe that peace with the Palestinians can be achieved…” - Natan Sharansky – Will the Israeli political elite be able to transform this epiphany into a change of direction in implementing the plan which will end Arab terror and reunify all Jewish land?
It Should be an Official Statement! The IDF says the remarks made about Turkey by army commander General Avi Mizrahi were personal. ''This is not the position of the army,'' said the IDF spokeswoman, after General Mizrahi called on Turkish PM Erdogan to examine his country's history concerning the Armenians, the Kurds and northern Cypriots, before criticizing Israel. Mizrahi was referring to Erdogan's verbal clash on stage at the Davos Economic Forum. (The anti-Israel outburst by Erdogan was official. Why was the criticism of Turkish genocidal behaviour not?)
Demand for Shalit is Blackmail? Senior PA negotiator Saeb Erekat accused outgoing Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of “blackmail” after Olmert had stated that Israel would not agree to a temporary truce with Hamas prior to the release of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit. (but keeping Gilad imprisoned by Hamas is not blackmail?)
Trade that Never Was. Egypt suspended quarterly talks on commercial cooperation with Israel on Thursday, after Israel's cabinet decision on Wednesday not to open its border crossings with the Gaza Strip until Hamas agrees to release abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier Gilad Shalit. (Since the Camp David agreement Egypt never has been true partner in peace with Israel. It was all just a game in order to get Sinai back and receive US aid for nothing!)
Hypocrisy of the 'Loaded' Headlines:
“Israel set down tough conditions for a proposed ceasefire with Hamas” – International Herald Tribune – Israel’s desire for the release of a captured Israeli soldier in exchange for hundreds of PA terrorists is the “tough condition”, but are continuous rocket attacks having a positive effect on any proposed ceasefire?
The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) this week started to transfer 8,000 tons of apples between the Golan Heights and Syria. (Apples grown by Druze farmers only are sent to Syria, excluding ‘Jewish’ apples. Please, think twice before donating your Jewish money to this organization
Please, not Another self-Hating ‘Jew’? Khazali, son of Ayatollah Abu Al-Kassam Khazali, says that Ahmadinejad changed his Jewish name on his ID card in order to hide his roots and is hiding his Jewish roots by attacking Israel and the Jews, and by expressing strong Muslim religious beliefs. (According to a rumour, Libyan President Muammar Qaddafi had a Jewish mother. Now an anti-Semitic card is used in the Iranian internal political fight. Jewish anti-Semites are never good news for Jews and Israel!)
Let Them All Go. Thousands of Druze residents of the Golan took part in a pro-Syrian march a week ago. The march commemorated the Knesset's 1981 decision to reunite the Golan with Israel. Syrian protesters joined from the other side. Protesters in the Golan waved Syrian flags and called for the Golan to be given to Syria. (The truth is there is no loyalty to Israel among Israeli Arabs or Druze. All of them must be returned to their ancestral lands!)

A man whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.
"Very few people were true Nazis "he said," but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, we had lost control and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories."
We are told again and again by "experts" and "talking heads" that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectre of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam. The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history.
It is the fanatics who march. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or who are honour killers. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. The hard quantifiable fact is that the "peaceful majority", the "silent majority" is cowed and extraneous.
…Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because, like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghanis, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold; we must pay attention to the only group that counts; the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
