“If one wishes to have even a basic understanding of the underlying principles involved in Middle East politics, then one must first understand the history and implications of the Treaty of Hudaibiyah,” Joel Richardson, author of the New York Times-best seller “The Islamic Antichrist”.
He believes Obama committed a “brazenly
amateur” gaffe by failing to understand who he was dealing with - an Iranian
regime steeped in Islamic law. (Obama is not fooled - he studied the
Islamic law during his schooling in
The rules the mullahs follow trace back to the life and example of Muhammad, he said. “And one of the most important tactical victories in Muhammad’s career is what is known as the Treaty of Hudaibiyah.”
Muhammad made this treaty with the pagan Quraysh tribe of
The Qurayshis entered into a 10-year peace pact with Muhammad and lived to regret it. But Muhammad saw an opportunity.
Freed from any military threat from the
most powerful tribe in the region, he suddenly “received a revelation” from
This revelation can be found in Surah 48 of the Quran. It begins with “Surely We (Allah) have given to you a clear victory.”
With the Qurayshis

Any men who joined the Muslims in war would receive a significant share of the plunder, booty, slaves and female prisoners.
Dozens of countries send rescue teams to disaster areas around the world, but none of them have such professional, devoted, brave and experienced doctors and officers like the Israelis. Israel’s aid team to the earthquake-battered Himalayan nation of Nepal is the largest in manpower of any international aid mission.
There is a strange potion called Israeliness: It melts the "impossible" and creates resourcefulness and determination even when the odds seem slim. If there are no Nepalese drivers at night, they are woken up; if the trucks don't fit, their side panels are removed; when the locals say "we can only do it tomorrow," they are woken up shortly after .

International anti-Semitic bigots deliberately ignore the facts that Israel has no legitimate negotiation partner - the last PA election was won by Hamas and new elections are long overdue; and it was Abbas who ended negotiations with Israel by starting international an anti-Israel diplomatic assault in the UN and ICC! Now, the ‘Islamic revolution’ infiltrated the Western world - 47% of European Jihadists in Syria, Iraq are French - but its leaders are still deliberately blind!

Hezbollah has reportedly built an airstrip designed for its fleet of unmanned aerial vehicle. Earlier this month, a US Army report said Iran is building a fleet of so-called “suicide kamikaze drones,” and providing know-how on assembling these new weapons to its terrorist allies Hamas in the Gaza Strip and Hezbollah in Lebanon.
The targets were centers and mobile forces from Brigades 65, 155 and 192 of the Syrian Army, which possess heavy missiles that were meant for Hezbollah, the Shiite Lebanese militia that is a proxy of Iran. One strike targeted a convoy that carried surface-to-surface missiles, Scuds, to Hezbollah. Another raid hit a missile depot in the strategic western Syrian region at al-Qalamoun.
France is making an aggressive bid to sideline the F-35 and to sell its own jet fighter, Rafale, to Canada, offering to transfer technology. Right now the F-35 is the best choice for sneaking past enemy ground radar, but this may change in the future.

Israelis have long complained about
double standards when it comes to their right to fight wars of self-defense.
Often times there is a level of scrutiny on
An issue raised by many in the legal arena – not only in Israel – is that the current rules of war enshrined in the Geneva Conventions do not weigh proper consideration for the effect of non-state actors: terrorist organizations, rebel groups, separatist provinces and the like. Asymmetric warfare presents major issues where enemy fighters operate among civilians and will often wear plain clothes. Thus, without being able to identify an enemy combatant by his uniform, a soldier will avoid an apparent civilian who is actually a legitimate target…

What is lacking in international law that requires this conference here and now? Is it the lack of solid definitions of terms like "proportionality" and "terrorism?" Is it broader than that?
