Pre-Election Stunt of Another Swindler?
Mahmoud Abbas announced that he is not going to run for re-election in January's elections. He accused the Israeli government with "adopting a policy that ruins all peace efforts." He also criticized Hamas for not reaching reconciliation with his Fatah faction. Most likely Fatah may hold a rally to pressure him to change his mind since the faction has no major candidate to replace him. (Everyone is at fault but not he! He continuously rejected any offer of peace made by Israel and it is most likely that he wants to boost his popularity by orchestrated ‘popular’ support or has stolen enough for a comfortable retirement. His predecessor, Yasser Arafat, had done the same! For someone who is planning retirement, Abbas has been doing quite fancy and active election campaigning.)
Something isn’t Worth Saving. The collapse of the PA, Israel's (fake) negotiating partner, was raised as a possibility after Mahmoud Abbas said that he intended to resign (good riddance). Meanwhile, PA Prime Minister Salaam Fayad is accused of quietly staging a ''bloodless coup'' against PA President Mahmoud Abbas (What coup? Hasn’t Abbas announced his resignation?). And, Azzam al-Ahmed, a prominent Fatah figure closely associated with Abbas, declared that Fatah had never recognized Israel's right to exist and would never do so. ''Fatah is a liberation movement,'' he said. ''Fatah cares only about the interests of the Palestinian people.'' (The time is long overdue for Israel to start to care only about the interests of the Jewish people!)
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
The killings in a Texas army base were not the first religiously motivated homicide committed by Muslim military personnel in the US Army. Politicly correct idiots in America, Europe or Australasia are deliberately avoiding questioning the loyalty of Muslims to their country of residence. Same Jew-hating bigots have never been shy questioning Jewish loyalty!
Who does not Want Peace? The Palestinian Islamic Hamas movement said on Tuesday that it will never negotiate with Israel: "Hamas will not negotiate with the occupation (Israel) and will not be the lifeboat for Oslo team," said Sami Abu Zuhri, a Hamas spokesman, referring to the Palestinian National Authority's (PNA) negotiation with Israel under the Oslo accords since 1993. (They reject the Oslo peace agreement, Israel's right to exist and unity among so-called Palestinians. So, who is the villain here?)
Ending Another Stupidity. The Knesset approved a preliminary reading of a bill by Likud MK Danny Danon that would stop the practice of allowing public funding for burials of (Arab) citizens who committed terrorist attacks.
A Self-Hating Jew is the Worst Enemy. Israel's desire for peace seems to have ''completely vanished,'' France's foreign minister Bernard Kouchner said. ''What really hurts me, and this shocks us, is that there used to be a great peace movement in Israel,'' (Why does the absence of the peace movement on the Arab side not hurt or shock him?)
Islamic Brotherly Love. The leader of Al-Qaida in the Arabian Penninsula, Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman al-Rashid, warned: ''They [Shiites] are being driven by a greed to take over Muslim countries and they are full of a wish to annihilate Sunnis… Their threat to Islam and its people is much bigger than that from Jews and Christians,'' (And both branches of Islam want to achieve world domination by Islam!)
Quote of the Week: "We are living in a global, post-national, post-modern, post-identity, world where people (Jews) are again asked to make a choice between universalism and nationalism, between freedom and identity… A young Jew after months and sometimes years of standing in the face of extreme and false slanderous attacks on Israel, finally says enough -- I want to live in a world without Israel… Strengthening our Jewish identity is the best guarantee to continue kibbutz galuyot, gathering of the exiles... rebuilding our Jewish identity can empower us to fight for tikun olam (perfection of the world at large - ed), with more justice and more freedom for everyone." - Natan Sharansky, Chairman of the Executive of the Jewish Agency for Israel – Zionism is the Jewish independent movement with the goal of the creation the Jewish homeland on our ancestral land. Enemies of Jews are determined to deny us this freedom. The true freedom is to know and appreciate who you are. The abandonment of one’s Jewish identity is return to slavery!
King Abdullah Rejects “Jordan is Palestine”. Jordan's King Abdullah on Tuesday condemned his fellow countrymen who have envisioned Jordan as a homeland for the Palestinians. Abdullah said that Jordan could defend itself – and that the 'Jordanian option' was no option, as far as he was concerned. (I agree - Jordan occupies 77% of Jewish land, hosting Bedouin refugees from Saudi Arabia and fake Palestinians, 60% of its population. The Sinai Option is a better solution!)
Little Economic Miracle. Israel has stood out among advanced economies as a place where the crisis hit softer and may have passed quicker, than almost anywhere else. Israel's economic growth has not been based on easy credit or a real estate boom, but on the technology-driven productivity gains that economists believe is the key to sustained economic growth.
It is Official: Lebanon is a Rogue State! Lebanon's prime minister has formed a Cabinet that includes the terrorist organization Hezbollah and its allies. Hezbollah has significantly expanded its ability to strike deep into Israel with rockets that can now reach the Jewish state's largest cities, and now possesses tens of thousands of projectiles. (And it is all due to supplies from Iran and Syria and the inaction of the Lebanese government and the United Nations.)
Hamas and Ethic are Incompatible. The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) rebuked the Islamist Hamas group that runs the Gaza Strip for banning a gathering of Palestinian reporters who hoped to discuss ethics in journalism. (Surprising criticism - they, the journalists, must be truly pissed off with Hamas!)
Hypocricy of the Headlines.
Alleged Gaza rocket launch renews war threat... - timesonline.co.uk – There is nothing “Alleged” about Hamas and Hezbollah rockets!
Another Hypocritical Friend of Israel. The Indian Chief of Staff Gen. Deepak Kapoor arrived in Israel a week ago. Israel and India enjoy close defense ties and Israel last year overtook Russia as the number-one supplier of military platforms to India. Since the Mumbai attack, Israel has assisted India in beefing up its security, particularly along its coast, where the terrorists allegedly infiltrated from nearby Pakistan. India is interested in working with Israel on submarine-launched cruise missiles, ballistic missile defense systems, laser-guided systems, satellites as well as unmanned aerial vehicles. (India supported and anti-Israel resolution of the UN Human Rights Council not long ago and does not miss an opportunity to reassure its oil suppliers with periodic anti-Israel outbursts!)
Islamic Bigotry of Turkey. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan continues to lash out at Israel's Cast Lead counter-terror operation in Gaza last winter, as he came to the defense of Sudanese President Omar Hassan al-Bashir who faces worldwide condemnation for the genocide taking place in the Darfur region of his country. (Sudan has expelled 4 million refugees from Darfur, the same as the number of Arabs living in Israel, Gaza, Judea and Samaria. Must Israel follow the Sudanese government’s example to earn the approval of Turkey?)
Unjust System and Self-hating Media Support Arab Thugs. Arab squatters stoned Jewish property owner Yitzchak Herskovitz,78, who has been fighting a decade long battle in the courts to have his property returned, as he came to give them an eviction order. Two people who escorted Herskovitz were wounded by the stone barrage, but the self-hating Israeli media had depicted Herskovitz and his friends as the aggressors in the incident.
Shameful Result of Jewish Assimilation.
A man who starred in a video released by al-Qaida's deputy leader Ayman al-Zawahri, inviting Americans to convert to Islam, has been identified as Adam Yehiye Gadahn, an American with Jewish ancestry. He was born Adam Pearlman on September 1, 1978, the grandson of a prominent Jewish surgeon and the son of musician Phil Pearlman, who converted to Christianity and changed his named to Gadahn (apparently derived from the Biblical figure Gideon) He grew up in Santa Ana, California, converted to Islam and, in 1995, posted an essay on the USC Web site describing his conversion. According to his parents, Gadahn moved to Pakistan in 1998, where he married an Afghani refugee. (As a result, conspiracy nuts and anti-Semitic idiots are already using the individual tragedy of some Jewish families and accusing the CIA/Mossad/British Intelligence of creating Al-Qaida. Another sad case of Jewish self-hate is Yousef al-Khattab, born Joseph Cohen)
