You Were Silent for Eight Years!
David Buskila, the mayor of Sderot, sent a personal letter to the head of the United Nations committee of inquiry on the war in Gaza, Judge Richard Goldstone. In the missive, Buskila protested against the UN's silence - and Goldstone's - in the years leading up to the Gaza operation. The world, the UN, and Goldstone had eight years in which to protest the rocket attacks on Sderot and other towns in southern Israel, Buskila said. Instead, they said nothing while Hamas repeatedly attacked: "The world was silent, and so were you. You were silent at the sight of our children's bodies, you were silent in the face of their fear, you were silent when each of the 8,000 Kassam rockets hit our city."
"Let us not ignore the facts - the suffering of Sderot and its children, and likewise the suffering of Gaza' residents, are on the shoulders and the conscience of Hamas's leaders and the leaders of fundamentalist Islam," (And the leaders of the so-called Free World, but not for Jews, who have remained silent while Jews were terrorized and suffered from Arab aggression!)
…the US Government continues violation of the Treaties that recognize Israel's rights to its internationally recognized legal borders, the prohibition against ceding any land belonging to the Jewish National Home, and supporting the right of Jewish settlement within those internationally recognized borders. The legal borders in question comprise all Israel, including all of Judea, Samaria, the Gaza Strip, the entire city of Jerusalem and more…(as it was defined in July 1922 by the League of Nations)
These borders were recognized by the United States in a 1924 treaty with Great Britain. The Jewish National rights recognized by the British and the Americans under the 1924 Anglo-American treaty are still guaranteed by the treaty. Furthermore, the US Constitution calls a treaty the "Supreme Law of the Land" and the Courts have the power to force the Federal Executive Branch (President, Secretary of State, etc.) to honour Treaties.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Popes, kings, dictators and presidents have been legitimising and justifying their ugly deeds against Jews using ‘disturbed’ Jew-puppets: the Soviet Union did it to destroy enemies of the Communist doctrine and the heritage of its own Jewish people, the United Kingdom and others it during the Palestinian mandate to destroy the Jewish dream of a national homeland, and the Catholic Church did it during the Inquisition to kill Jews physically and spiritually
Extraordinary Mockery of Nobel Peace Prize! US President Barack Obama had received the award this year Nobel Peace Prize for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples," particularly for his outreach to the Muslim world and attempts to curb nuclear proliferation. (All Obama’s “extraordinary efforts” just rhetoric of a skilful demagogue and are leading nowhere but failure. Many of them have failed already. A Nobel Prize is given for achievement, not for wishful-thinking!)
Removing Terror-linked Population. The United Arab Emirates has reportedly expelled dozens of Lebanese Shiites from its territory. They were suspected of having linked to the Hezbollah. (Shouldn’t Israel do the same with the terror-linked so-called Palestinian families?)
Jews are Still Gluttons for Punishment. A Gallup poll released not long ago shows that out of all religious groups in the United States, Jews account for the biggest group supporting Barack Obama as president. Sixty four percent of American Jews, in spite of the clearly not pro-Israel policy of the current administration, approve of the job he is doing and support his presidency. Among Catholics, 54% approve and support the Obama presidency, while 47% of Protestants and only 32% of Mormons do. Seventy eight percent of American Jews voted for Obama in the 2008 elections.
Another Muslim ‘Democracy’. The United Nations official recently removed from his post in Kabul, Peter Galbraith, estimates that up to one third of the votes for President Hamid Karzai in the August election were phoney. He accused his former boss, Kai Eide, of being soft on the level of fraud in the elections, saying that in one region, ''there were ten times as many votes as there are voters.'' (In the West we pay for this farce with the blood of our soldiers and taxpayers’ money!)
Quote of the Week: “We know from history that a war against the Jews becomes a war against free people and free nations everywhere.'' – Israel PM Binyamin Netanyahu.
Reconciliation Game. Senior Hamas member Salah Al-Bardawil called on Egypt on Monday night to delay the signing of a Hamas-Fatah reconciliation agreement, only hours after Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman had announced an October 26th date for the signing to take place. Al-Bardawil said that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was not true to PA interests. (Why should he be? By his own admission, his family came to Tzvat, Israel, from Damascus, Syria!)
Another Case of International Hypocrisy. The Israel Antiquities Authority condemned the World Archaeological Congress for holding an international conference in Ramallah dedicated to "overcoming structural violence" and the negative impact of politics on archaeology. UN excluded Israelis by not informing the IAA of the event in advance and deliberately allowed an academic forum to be used for political propaganda against Israel.
What Peace process? Fatah has declared to PA President Mahmoud Abbas, who heads the movement, that he must not resume peace talks unless Israel freezes its settlement construction. Fatah's position could help Abbas stand up to U.S. pressure to return to the negotiating table. (Strangely, the refusal by the PA and Arab states to recognize Israel as the Jewish state and end terror are not considered as obstacles to peace!)
Turning Skin Cells into Stem Cells. Scientists in Haifa have adapted an innovative Japanese gene-implantation technique to reprogram and reverse human skin cells back to artificial embryonic stem cells. After become stem cells, researchers switched them into heart cells.
1. The latest paroxysm of Yemen's five-year war with the rebel Houthis has left more than 2,000 dead in less than a month and up to 150,000 homeless. Yemeni government troops are battling around 15,000 Iranian-armed and trained Houthi rebels dug into the northern Sadaa mountains on the Saudi Arabian border. Saudi air force bombers are pounding the rebels and the Egyptian air force and navy are ferrying ammunition to the Yemen army with US encouragement and funding…
This strategically-located, poor Red Sea country - Yemen, for years a critical stage for the war against Islamic extremists, has now become a key arena where the United States and Iran jockey for regional primacy. In that respect, the Yemen conflict compares in importance with the 2006 Lebanon War and the Gaza conflict…
2. An estimated 5.4 million people have been killed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo since 1998, with 38,000 more dying every month. Yet not only are most people unaware of this, the worst toll since World War II, but there has been no hint of the UN General Assembly emergency session to discuss it, let alone condemn it. (No visits from the ‘special’ US envoy, no press coverage, no international interest, no condemnations, no investigations etc… The terrorists in Yemen have the same ideological base as the ones in Gaza and Lebanon, but Yemen is not Israel! The lives of the people of the Congo have the same value, don’t they?)
