Obama is Willingly Fooled by Classic Muslim Ploy

“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 Indonesia!)

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 Mecca, which was the most powerful tribe in the region at the time.

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 Allah, Richardson said.

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 sidelined, Muhammad began attacking several large Jewish tribes in Arabia.

Any men who joined the Muslims in war would receive a significant share of the plunder, booty, slaves and female prisoners.

IDF Mission in Nepal

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 midnight.

The Israeli rescue force includes the best people in the country. We arrived in Nepal and we have been to Haiti and Turkey. If needed, we'll go all the way to Antarctica.

No UN Condemnations - No ICC Investigations!

An observer group says US strikes hit town without any terrorists in it, killing 7 children, although more are still trapped in the rubble. The incident brings to mind reports last November showing that 96.5% of the casualties from US drone strikes in the Middle East were civilians, a figure which shows how remarkable the IDF's.

Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak

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!

Israel Eleventh Happiest Country

Israel was the eleventh happiest country in the world in 2014 - outranking the US, UK, and numerous European countries. The world's top 10 happiest last year were Switzerland, Iceland, Denmark, Norway, Canada, Finland, the Netherlands, Sweden, New Zealand, and Australia.

Calm is just Another Temporary Fix!

For several weeks now, official representatives from Israel have been holding a real dialogue with an Islamic terrorist group in a bid to reach a long-term calm on the Gaza border. (At any time convenient for them, tge enemy will break an agreement with Israel. Only the removal all of them from Jewish land will bring peace to Israel!)

Keep Enemy Supporters Away from Israel

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman slammed South Africa, after the country’s communist party labeled Israel an “apartheid state”. The South African Communist Party’s (SACP) statement came after Israel refused to grant an entry visa to the party’s Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzmande, to visit PA-controlled territories. (What chutzpah - they are killing Africans from other states, but condemn Israel!)

Anti-Semitic Justice of the US Government!

Former CIA Director David Petraeus was given two years of suspended sentence, plus a $100,000 fine for giving his mistress classified material while she was working on a book. (Jonathan Pollard, who gave Israel information about enemies - which the US, supposedly friend of the Jewish state, should provide but had kept hidden - is still serving a life sentence in the US prison! Many of us would pay a $100,000 fine for his freedom!)

Hezbollah Built Airstrip for Drones

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.

IAF Struck Hezbollah Scud Missile Convoys

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.

Israel Must Look at Other Fighter Jet Options

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.

F35                 Range - 2,220 km     Top speed - 1,930 km/h

Rafale Range - 3,700 km     Top speed - 2,130 km/h

(With technology transfer option Israel will be able built an even better fighter!)

Iranian Nuclear Business as Usual

Britain has informed a United Nations sanctions panel of an active Iranian nuclear procurement network linked to two blacklisted firms, according to a confidential report by the panel seen by Reuters. The existence of such a network could add to Western concerns over whether Tehran can be trusted to adhere to a nuclear deal due by June 30 in which it would agree to restrict sensitive nuclear work in exchange for sanctions relief. But, the United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency have repeatedly said that Tehran has so far complied with the terms of a limited agreement struck in November 2013.

Double Israeli Trade within a Decade

The incoming Chinese Ambassador Zhan Yongxin presented his diplomatic credentials to Rivlin, he said, "I bring with me the greetings of the Chinese President, and wish to express my appreciation of the warm welcome I have received in Israel." The talk of doubling trade volume comes as Israel and China plan to discuss a Free Trade Agreement this year, amid rapidly growing bilateral ties. Israel has been actively developing an Asian alliance, boosting ties with China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and India.

Quotes of the Week:

“Much has been said about the strange behaviour of Barack Obama, who can’t let a day go without maligning Israel and Mr. Netanyahu… No doubt the dislike is there, but what underlies the animosity of Obama toward PM Netanyahu goes beyond schmoozability to seismic differences in outlook and policy. In fact, at Mr. Netanyahu’s very first White House meeting, before they really knew each other, Obama purposely mistreated PM Netanyahu by forcing him to enter through a side entrance and, then, abruptly left the meeting and went upstairs by himself for dinner while leaving PM Netanyahu and his staff without hospitality or even a piece of bread. This was a deliberate, unheard of disparagement, directed more at Israel, the state represented by Netanyahu.” - Rabbi Aryeh Spero - It is most likely the ingrained anti-Semitism or/and hidden Islamism behind the anti-Israel tendency of Obama!

Change of Rules of War is Needed

by Gedalyah Reback

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 Israel’s battlefield operations, unmatched compared to international media evaluations of wars launched by Western countries or even the recent Saudi air campaign in Yemen. Even at a fundamental level, there are some points when Israel’s entire justification for a war of self-defense is undermined by Israel’s detractors eager to delegitimize any substantial military action takes, no matter its opponent…

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…

“We need urgently to discuss fresh ideas for removing the incentive for Hamas and other armed terrorist groups like the PLO and Hezbollah to break the law when they fight against democracies like Israel,” said Darshan-Leitner of Israeli law center Shurat HaDi.

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?
