Two activists have exposed a disturbing phenomenon that they say is an open secret within the "peace camp": female "peace" activists are routinely harassed and raped by the Arabs of Judea and Samaria with whom they have come to identify. They say the phenomenon has gotten worse lately and that many foreign women end up as wives of local Arabs against their will, but cannot escape their new homes…
Roni Aloni Sedovnik, a feminist activist, explains that when female peace activists from Israel and abroad went to Judea and Samaria and demonstrate against the Israeli "occupation" they were sexually assaulted by Arab men, whom they have come to help. These are not isolated incidents, Aloni-Sedovnik stresses. Rather, this is an "ongoing and widespread" phenomenon that includes verbal and physical abuse. She accuses the 'peace' camp of purposely covering up the trend so as not to offend "the Palestinians and their heritage, which sees women as sexual objects."
Aloni-Sedovnik cites two specific cases - one is a case of rape and the other a case of "severe sexual harassment." The attackers, she stresses, in both cases were familiar with the victims and knew that they were "peace activists."
The rape occurred several months ago in the village of Umm Salmona, near Bethlehem. The victim, an American activist, wanted to press charges but leftist activists put pressure on her not to do so, so as not to damage the struggle against the 'occupation.'
The second case involved an Israeli activist who took part in the demonstrations at Shimon HaTzaddik neighbourhood in eastern Jerusalem, where the High Court ruled that Jewish families may move into homes that they have owned for generations. This woman filed a complaint with the police but retracted it after "severe and unfair pressure" from the demonstrations' organisers…
Celebrating Simchas Torah!
Some 3,300 year ago the Jewish nation was created! Unfortunately there are people, including misguided Jews, who are still questioning this fact. Regardless, whether it was Divine providence or conception of the nationhood by people who escaped the tyranny of Egypt,
Jews have a lot to celebrate!
Why there is No Pressure to ‘Negotiate’ on Abbas?
The PLO Executive Committee gave Mahmoud Abbas the mandate he requested for breaking off the US-sponsored "direct talks. The Saudi royal mouthpiece Asharq Al-Awsat crowned Mahmoud Abbas on Sept. 29 the "most inept diplomat of 2010," a dubious honor he is said to have earned by simultaneously meeting Israeli and Hamas Islamic terror objectives, but blaming Israel for the breakdown of talks and resumption of settlement construction.
Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak
Muhammad’s murderous life history, his lies and paedophilia are not so vigorously questioned, if at all, as are Jewish beliefs in reincarnation, spiritual teachings of Kabbalah and the Oral Law. Where are the so-called nice people with their political correctness, religious tolerance and acceptance?
Mahmoud Alyaee, secretary-general of Iran's industrial computer servers, confirmed that 30,000 computers belonging to classified industrial units had been infected and disabled by the malicious Stuxnet virus. Is clandestine cyber war being fought against Iran by the United States with elite cyber war units established by Israel?
Appeasement will Never Bring Peace!
A PA leader tells the UN that a peace deal is possible if Israel withdraws to the pre-967 borders, thus allowing a proposed Palestinian state to have east Jerusalem as its capital. 'Israel is above the law. It expands settlements, erects apartheid fence,' he said. “Israel must choose between settlements and peace." (Enemies set so many conditions but have not even made a commitment to negotiate peace with Israel! A ten months freeze on settlements did not stop terror attacks and have not yielded any good will gestures from the PA!)
US Senate - Time to Pressure Abbas.
Almost all US Senators signed a letter to Obama saying that Netanyahu “reached out to Abbas,” who they said must be pressured not to freeze talks.
“Palestinians” not Welcome in Lebanon.
President of Lebanon Michel Sleiman reiterated refusal to settle Palestinian ‘refugees’, saying such a step would undermine stability in the country. “Lebanon has said it will not accept the settlement of Palestinians for several reasons, especially due to dangers that will result from the settlement which will undermine security and stability.” (The Lebanese know their brothers well. They remember that ‘Palestinians’ were behind the civil war in Lebanon. From the Arab league perspective, so-call Palestinians are used as the perfect weapons to undermine the security and stability of Israel.)
International Refusal to See Reality.
Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations that the end of the freeze on Jewish building in Judea and Samaria was just an excuse for Abbas not to continue direct talks with Israel. "For nine months, the Palestinians claimed that the freeze was a trick. Now they have turned it into the most important thing", said Lieberman.
"President Arafat instructed Hamas to carry out a number of military operations in the heart of the Zionist entity after he felt that his negotiations with the Israeli government then had failed," Mahmoud Zahar, one of the Hamas leaders, told students and lecturers at the Islamic University in Gaza City. This was the first time that a senior Hamas official disclosed that some of the suicide bombings in Israel during the second intifada, which erupted 10 years ago, were ordered by Arafat. Until now it was widely believed that Arafat had ordered only his Fatah militiamen to carry out terror attacks on Israel.
The Pentagon has burned 9,500 copies of Army Reserve Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer's memoir "Operation Dark Heart." The U.S. Defence Intelligence Agency attempted to block the book that discusses the tipping point in Afghanistan and a controversial pre-9/11 data-mining project called "Able Danger." The agency also attempted to block key portions of the book that claim "Able Danger" successfully identified hijacker Mohammed Atta as a threat to the United States before the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks.
Please, view this information and judge yourself. This important constitutional issue of the United States is still not addressed properly! Is he a legitimate President? A natural born citizen must be born on US soil and both parents must be US citizens. Obama's father was Kenyan! (Why aren't the US Congress, the Supreme court, independent press investigating this allegation and, most importantly, the US voters up in arms about this? Aren’t they at least curious to learn whether or not there has been an abuse of the United States constitution and democratic process?)
Priority of 'Moderate' Islamic State.
Pakistan's Prime Minister called a female scientist convicted of trying to kill US interrogators in Afghanistan "the daughter of the nation" and vowed to campaign for her release from an American jail. (It is a well-known secret that the ISI, the Pakistani intelligence agency, has been actively supporting the Taliban. But the charade that Pakistan is a moderate Islamic state persists! How can we win the war against terror by befriending enemies like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia?)
19-year-old Breslov Chossid was murdered by Ukrainian thugs near the grave of his Rebbe in Uman, just two months before he was to be married. (It is time to bring the remains of the Rebbe home and stop sponsoring anti-Semites with Jewish money!)
Labor Party does not Reflect the Reality.
Defence Minister, Ehud Barak, said that comments made by Foreign Minister, Avigdor Lieberman, at the UN General Assembly “do not reflect the stance of the government, and certainly not the stance of the Labor party. The Labor party believes in continuing the direct talks in order to achieve an agreement with the Palestinians, and in order not to play into the hands of Israel's enemies.”
No International Fuss nor US Pressure!
South Korea says its first working-level military talks with North Korea in two years ended with no progress. South Korea pressed North Korea to apologise for the deadly sinking of a South Korean warship in March and to punish those responsible. Forty-six sailors died! (Because there are no Jews in Korea)
Quote of the Week:
"We have to stop apologising and looking for where we are guilty. The other side does not want peace and wastes time. The truth is not always pleasant but it needs to be told." - Avigdor Lieberman, Foreign Minister of Israel

It is good to keep one’s own identity and traditions while maintaining respect of others. Islam has no such tradition!
Danish integration problems with Muslims became public worldwide in 2006 when the newspaper, Jyllands-Posten, published 12 cartoons of the prophet Mohammed. Currently 70 percent of inmates in Copenhagen's youth prison consists of young men of Muslim heritage… According to the Danish police and the Danish Bureau of Statistics over 70 percent of all crimes in the Danish capital are committed by Muslims.
According to the (politicly correct) Copenhagen authorities it is apparently permitted to state that the serious problems among Muslims are caused by poverty, the media, the police, the Danes, politicians, etc. But two things are definitely not allowed: 1) discussing the significance of culture and 2) our foreigners own responsibility for their integration in our societies. Unfortunately many very powerful politicians lack a clear understanding of the psychological aspect of culture and the influence it has on integration. Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels does not believe that integration of Muslims in Western societies is possible.
People hope that most Muslims are modern and accept Western values. The experience is different and this has been proven by the statistics in Europe and some deadly serious riots Europe saw a couple of years ago. In these riots, we saw Muslims (who do not practice the Islamic religion in their daily lives) standing up for their culture and religion in a very aggressive way.
Unfortunately many politicians see poverty as the main cause of integration problems. I think this is a horrible and one-dimensional view of poor people and of people in general. The idea that people's behaviour is decided by the amount of money they have in their bank accounts every month is an exceedingly limited view.
Those who say that integration is possible, carry a very great responsibility. There is a very great risk that they are selling us hope, a dream that has no foundation in reality... On the contrary, research that we have on integration of Muslims in Western societies shows that we are continuing to head in the wrong direction.
