Knesset Law and Justice Committee chairman MK David Rotem told senior officials Thursday that he expects police and other law enforcement authorities to play by the rules of the justice system and refrain from using 'administrative orders.'
Rotem's comments came after IDF Central Command boss Maj. Gen. Avi Mizrahi ordered that 12 nationalist activists be notified of their temporary expulsion from Judea and Samaria for periods ranging from 3 to 9 months.
Mizrachi cited 'suspicion' that those exiled from their homes had been involved in planning and executing violent attacks on Arabs in the region as his grounds for the order.
The IDF has consistently used so-called 'distancing' orders as a means of targeting nationalist activists in Judea and Samaria in cases where no evidence of wrong-doing can be produced.
Rights observers note that issuing extrajudicial orders against citizens merely suspected of criminal acts is a gross violation of the fundamental right to due process and a common tactic employed by totalitarian police states.
Haim Rahamim, head of the investigations and intelligence wing of the Judea and Samaria District in the West Bank, admitted to Rotem's committee that the Israel Police had been unsuccessful running undercover officers in the region and struggled to obtain sufficient evidence to make their cases in court.
Ministry of Justice representative Attorney Karen Dahari openly admitted nationalist activists had been systematically targeted with extrajudicial orders when police failed to make their cases in court…

Successful people in politics or business know that with proper planning and persistence any goal is achievable. Israel and Jewish communities need true political and religious leadership, not self-serving chameleons!

A Hamas official slammed Jordan’s King Abdullah and said his fate will be similar to that of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Mustafa Sawaf, editor-in-chief of the Gaza-based, Hamas-affiliated paper Felesteen, criticized the King for his support of the renewed talks between Israeli and Palestinian Authority officials.
Cruel but Effective anti-Islamic Terror Action
Russian Navy commandos captured a Somalian pirate ship shortly after the pirates had captured a Russian oil tanker. The Euro Union navy that patrols these waters would not interfere because they feared there could be casualties. After soldiers freed their compatriots and the tanker, Russian Navy commandos moved the pirates back to their own (pirate) ship and then sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. They used the anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. Usually, they were hung. (KGB used quite successfully a similar tactic against kidnapped foreigners during the civil war in Lebanon)

Iraq's security situation continues to worsen in the wake of the Obama administration's pullout of US forces. A coordinated wave of bombings targeting Shiite Muslims killed at least 78 people last Thursday.

One day after a mysterious assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist, U.S. President Barack Obama called Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on the phone and reportedly wanted explanations. The U.S. reportedly wants Israel to refrain from attacking Iran and to coordinate all Iran-related actions with Washington. (Lives of Israelis are under the threat from nuclear Iran! Obama, so-called of Israel, was too quick to proclaim the US was not involved in attack. The US quite often ignores Israel’s warnings and advise. Why should Israel listen to others when Israel’s national security on line?)
Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood denied on Saturday that it plans to uphold the peace treaty that was signed between Israel and Egypt in 1979. According to the report, the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, which won the recent elections in Egypt, told Arab media that the final decision on the matter is in the hands of the Egyptian people. The denial comes few days after the US State Department Victora Nuland had told reporters that the Muslim Brotherhood assured Washington it would uphold extant diplomatic accords, including the 1979 Egypt-Israel Peace Treaty signed by Anwar al-Sadat and Menachem Begin. (This is another web of lies and deception. Israel has no partner with who to make peace!)

“The maximum any Israeli government can offer is less than the minimum any Palestinian leader can accept. The real gap between both sides is much greater than perceived, and that gap is growing” - Maj.-Gen. (res.) Giora Eiland, former head of the National Security Council, 2009

Various large scale world atrocities and conflicts have occurred in the past few years: Saddam's annihilation of the Kurds, Syria's brutal occupation of Lebanon, East Timor, Tibet, Kosovo, Bosnia, Chechnya, conflict between India and Pakistan, North Korea, War in the Congo and Rwanda, Kashmir, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Bali, massacres in Algeria, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan, Zimbabwe, Indonesia, Philippines, West China, Bask region in Spain and France, Syria, the Lebanese civil war, and the Iran-Iraq conflict. The majority of the conflicts are instigated by Muslims against fellow Muslims or other ethnic and religious minorities.
There are many nations around the globe who once had their own statehood. They still maintain their unique national identity, culture, language and connection with the land:
