In a little-noticed trial in a small courtroom here, Cyprus, on Wednesday a 24-year-old man provided a rare look inside a covert global war between Israel and Iran, admitting that he is an operative of the militant group Hezbollah, for which he acted as a courier in Europe and staked out locations in this port city that Israelis were known to frequent.
Breaking with the group’s ironclad discipline and practiced secrecy, the operative, Hossam Taleb Yaacoub, described being handled by a masked man he knew only as Ayman. He told of doing simple tasks at first: picking up a couple of bags in Lyon, France, taking a cell phone, two SIM cards and a mysterious package wrapped in newspaper from Amsterdam to Lebanon.
Mr. Yaacoub’s testimony
offered unaccustomed insights from an active Hezbollah member into the militant
group’s secret operations. But it carried potentially greater significance for
the European Union, which has thus far resisted following

No Change in Netanyahu’s Gutless Politics
Kadima is in line as the second party to join the Netanyahu government, after its leader Shaul Mofaz was promised the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Security Committee chair. Likud and Hatnuah signed their accord, assigning Tzipi Livni the Justice Ministry portfolio and responsibility for peace talks with the PA. Her party of six mandates was the first to join Binyamin Netanyahu’s post-election lineup. (Disregarding the clear swing to Zionist ideology among Israeli voters, after almost 20 years of face peace war, Netanyahu invites the same traitors to the political pie. Israelis are sick and tired with the lack of national leadership!)
The North Korean test of a “miniature nuclear device” capability, combined with Iran’s ability to launch a capsule with a monkey payload into orbit, add up to their having achieved a nuclear warhead capacity through shared technology. Officials in Jerusalem were dismayed to discover that, instead of cutting this menace short, members of President Barack Obama’s circle were studying a bizarre plan to appease Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei by seeking UN Security Council endorsement for his nuclear fatwa.
Bennett to Netanyahu: 'Not Too Late to Make Amends'
Bayit Yehudi head Naftali Bennett calls on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to patch things up with the Bayit Yehudi party before it's too late: "We are at a historic junction and the ball is in the prime minister's court." In a reference to Likud's hurtful election campaign that targeted religious Zionism and its rabbis, Bennett added: "For many decades, there was a natural partnership between Likud and religious Zionists, but in the last campaign we were brutally attacked. Something in the partnership was frayed, but it is not too late to make amends." Bennett has formed a tactical pact with secularist Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid party, which stipulates that neither party will enter a coalition without the other. (Netanyahu fears strong Zionist partners and still plays “divide and conquer” game!)
British Prime Minister David Cameron visited the site of a colonial-era massacre in India at Jallianwala Bagh where British troops opened fire on thousands of unarmed protesters in 1919, describing the episode as “deeply shameful” while stopping short of a public apology. It immediately invited a debate about why Cameron was opening up wounds from the past - and was stopping short of saying sorry - during a visit designed to stress the future of Indo-British ties. (Not long ago, the British Empire committed hundreds of atrocities against civilians around the word - in India, the Middle East, South Africa, etc. Israel is the only country in the world, which is continuously forced to apologize by international anti-Semitic bigots for defending its right to exist!)
Lebanese women are taking to the streets to demand laws to protect against abusive partners. But local religious courts often claim domestic violence is a matter of "personal status" outside their authority. (Female genital mutilation, gang rapes, limb amputations, acid attacks, absence of freedom of religious worshiping or speech - how many more reasons do the fake liberals need to change their anti-Israel attitude and focus on true villain - barbaric Islamic ideology of world domination?)
Will Islamists Confront Israel from Golan?
Assad has evacuated most of the troops of his 5th Army Division from their permanent bases on the Golan opposite Israeli forces and transferred them along with their artillery to Damascus. This step was intended by Assad to reinforce the defense of his capital, while at the same time providing the al Qaeda-linked fighters in rebel ranks direct access to the Israel border.
Danish-Palestinian film director Mahdi Fleifel, who was awarded the Berlin International Film Festival’s annual Peace Prize, publically said at the Q&A session following the ceremony that he did not recognize Jewish legitimacy in the Land of Israel.
Quote(s) of the Week:
“Steven, 105 years ago Zion was just getting well organized to enslave the world into a perpetual war based economy. First they murdered my cousin, Czar Nicolas. Then after the three stooges were done using them for the power grab, they spilled over into the rest of Europe and organized labor unions. Yes, they did a few good things but they also caused an environment of no Liberty.” - This kind of delussional garbage I receive often from deranged anti-Semites and even some self-hating Jews. Unfortunately, there are still too many of them around. We should not waste too much of our time on rebuking idiots. Blinded by hate, they will never change their mind. We must focus on our own national goal!
