They Can not Pin this on Israel!

Remember when Gaza was an “open air prison,” as the Huffington Post called it? Remember when the tunnels, smuggling terrorists and weaponry in and out of the Strip, were “a legitimate trade and passenger route, one that is necessary for survival,” according to the New York Times? That was when Israel was trucking in tons of goods and the Rafah crossing between Egypt and Gaza was open.

Well, Israel is still trucking food, medicine, clothing, construction materials and other supplies into Gaza. During the one week of September 8-14, Israel sent 1,428 trucks carrying 38,545 tons of goods into the Gaza enclave. So what’s changed? Egypt is cracking down on Gaza, that’s what.

Gaza exports terrorism and terrorists to Egypt and Egypt cracks down. Egypt destroys smuggling tunnels, closes the crossing, and secures territory on the border. Naturally, one would think that human rights activists around the world are planning large-scale demonstrations and setting off on their protest ships in support of the “poor Palestinians”. No?

When Israel tries to protect its citizens from thousands of rockets, missiles and terrorist attacks from Gaza, there was an international outrage. Now Egypt responds to terrorism in the Sinai and has done more than Israel did in order to isolate Gaza. Where are the protests? Where are the flotillas? And for heaven’s sake, where’s the coverage? How come that you don’t hear much about the suffering of Gaza residents? Because, Israel can’t be blamed for it!

CNN Falsified Rohani's Holocaust Comments

The day after Rohani gave an interview to CNN's Amanpour, claiming the Holocaust was “reprehensible, condemnable”, the official Iranian news agency claims the network intentionally 'mistranslated' Rohani. Amanpour “knows Farsi better than me,” the FARS editor said.

Undiplomatic Behaviour of French Diplomat

French diplomat Marion Fesneau-Castaing punched an Israeli soldier in the face at the weekend prompting Israel’s Foreign Ministry to demand “an explanation of this blatant violation of diplomatic codes of conduct”. In published footage Fesneau-Castaing punched a border policeman on the chin with her fist.

Failed Leadership Undermines Israel’s Existence

United States President Barack Obama’s speech to the United Nations on Tuesday declared that Israel cannot continue to exist as a secure, democratic state without “the realization of a Palestinian state.” MK Moshe Feiglin (Likud) explained that it is the fault of Israeli leadership: “Until (former Prime Minister Yitzchak) Rabin and (Prime Minister Binyamin) Netanyahu, all Israeli leaders repeatedly stated the historic truth: that there is no ‘Palestinian’ nation, no ‘Palestinian’ history and no ‘Palestinian’ national aspirations.” World leaders always understood that fact, he added. However, he said, Israeli leaders’ change in heart eventually led Western views to change. “There is an Arab nation that aspires to destroy Israel, and the ‘Palestinian’ invention is the main way to do that,” he continued.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

Ignorance is a passive stupidity! 1) Stupid anti-Semites just love to hate and blame Jews for everything. 2) Sophisticated anti-Semites support Arabs, who hate “infidels” even more than Jews, in their effort to destroy Jewish state. 3) International political prostitutes, most of whom are also anti-Semites, pretend that they are ignorant about history and international law related to the Palestinian mandate and the right of Israel to Jewish ancestral land. Appeasement of their masters, oil rich Arab Gulf states, is just a bonus.

Israel Warned Kenya Before Nairobi Attack

Israel was among those who warned Kenya's government of the high risk of an attack before the deadly assault on a Nairobi mall by Islamist terrorists. The report said that Israel, which has close security ties with Kenya, had warned of plans to attack Israeli property in September. The Westgate mall, popular with expatriates and wealthy Kenyans, is part owned by Israelis and had long been considered a prime potential target.

Why did it Take so Long?

In a small but symbolic gesture, the Finnish Amateur Athletic Association (SUL) has apologized for revoking an obvious 100 meter victory from a Jewish athlete in Helsinki in June 1938. Abraham Tokazier of Finland crossed the finish line first in a competition held to inaugurate Helsinki's Olympic Stadium. But another Finn, Aare Savolainen, was named the winner of the race, and will go down in history books as such. (There are many countries around the world who are still ‘withholding’ their apologies to Jews for anti-Semitic atrocities they committed through their history!)

Syrian Rebels Reviled Their True Islamic Colours. Syria's rebels, 11 of the biggest armed factions, repudiated the Western-backed opposition leadership and announced the formation of a new alliance dedicated to creating an Islamic state. Collectively, the new front, which but has been dubbed the ''Islamist Alliance'', claims to represent 75 per cent of the rebels fighting to topple Bashar al-Assad. (When they realized that the West has no intention in supporting the ‘Islamic Spring’ in Syria, they unveiled their true intention)

Call to Annul the Oslo Accords

Israel's Deputy Defense Minister has called on the Israeli government to "annul the Oslo Accords."  MK Danny Danon insists that, twenty years after the signing of the Accords between Israel and the Palestinian Authority, "The government of Israel must admit that we made a mistake and declare that the Oslo process has failed." It is a very public act of dissent by an Israeli minister, as Prime Minister Netanyahu's government continues to embark on negotiations with the Palestinian Authority within the "Two-State Solution" paradigm. The rate of Israelis killed by Arab terrorists increased significantly following the Oslo Accords and subsequent Israeli concessions to the PA, suggesting that such a "paradigm" merely exacerbates the conflict as opposed to providing a viable solution to it.

Undiplomatic Provocation of EU Diplomats in Israel

Diplomats from a number of European countries and the UN have reacted angrily after Israeli soldiers intervened to prevent them delivering aid to Bedouins in the West Bank. The aid was being delivered to Khirbet al-Makhul after homes there were demolished under a High Court order because they had been built without the correct permits. An Israeli spokesman said it was reviewing whether the diplomats had abused their privileges. (I would like to see them pulling the stunt like this in a Muslim/Arab country)

Without Security Obsession there will be no Israel!

PA President Mahmoud Abbas addresses the UN, calls on Israel "to stop relying on exaggerated security pretexts and obsessions"; warns that the current round of negotiations might be the last chance for peace. Peace between Israel and the Palestinians will result in recognition of Israel from 57 Arab states, Abbas said during his speech at the UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday. Abbas also insisted on the “right of return”, which would turn Israel into an Arab state, which the Arabs would then recognize. (The Arabs will leave no Jewish state for them to recognize)

West is too Eager to Welcome the Enemy

President Obama is running eagerly toward rapprochement with a nuclear Iran notwithstanding its declared ambition to destroy Israel. Sources close to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu say he is determined when addressing the UN this month to tear the false veil off Iran’s face - even if he is a lone voice. The new president and even supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei say their government will never develop a nuclear bomb. (Can we trust the words of the historically proven liars? It is a ‘mitzvah’ for a Muslim to deceive infidels! Have they offered to stop enrichment of nuclear material and dismantle the Iranian nuclear program?)

Quote of the Week:

“The British Government was impressed by the reality, the strength and the idealism of this (Zionist) movement. It recognised its value in ensuring the future development of Palestine, which now appears likely to come within the British sphere of influence. It decided to give to the Zionist idea…” - an Interim Report on the Civil Administration of Palestine during the period of 1920-1921, Herbert Samuel, the High Commissioner and Commander-in-Chief of the British Government. - Anti-Semitic bigots have conveniently ‘forgotten’ or pretend that they do not know the true purpose why the Palestinian Mandate was created!

It’s not Just Hate - It is Islamic Life-style!

Iraq: 1) Two bombs planted inside a funeral tent in a mainly Sunni Muslim district of Baghdad have killed at least 16 people, police and medical sources said. A further 30 people were wounded in the explosion in the northern Adhamiya district. 2) The attack came a day after a suicide bomber struck a Sunni funeral in Baghdad, killing at least 16 people. 3) Triple bombings targeting Shia Muslim mourners in the Sadr City district killed at least 85 people. 4) Three bombs went off simultaneously in the Shia village of Sabaa al-Bour, about 30 kilometres north of the Iraqi capital. Bombings have hit two markets in Baghdad province, killing at least 23 people, while armed men have killed five members of one family south of the capital.

Yemen: Suspected al-Qaida militants killed about 40 people in attacks on two military targets in south Yemen. Around 30 soldiers died when two car bombs exploded at a military camp in al-Nashama, near the coast, and about 10 police were killed by gunmen in the inland town of Mayfaa.

Syria: A roadside bomb killed at least 14 members of President Bashar Assad's minority Alawite sect in the central Syrian. The blast targeted two buses near the Alawite village of Jabourin, 13 km north of Homs city.

Pakistan: Twin suicide bombings killed more than 85 people and wounded over 140 at a church service in northwest Pakistan in what is believed to be the deadliest attack on Christians in the country. A wing of the Pakistani Taliban quickly claimed responsibility for the bombings.

Kenya: The Somali Islamist al-Shabab movement said it had carried out the attack on a Nairobi shopping mall. At least 65 people have been killed, including three soldiers. Three Americans, of Somali origin, and one British woman were involved in the attack!

Nigerian: Under the cover of darkness, gunmen approached a college dormitory in a rural Nigerian town and opened fire on students who were sleeping. At least 40 students died. Since 2009, Boko Haram has sown murder and mayhem in Nigeria's northeastern region. The Islamic militant group's name translates from the local Hausa language as "Western education is a sin."
