Depressing old Israeli music: Shlomo Artzi, I carry with me

I carry with me/"Ani No'sea Imee"/"אני נושא עמי"

Such a beautiful and sad song. I heard a while ago that Shlomo Artzi who sings only in Hebrew has fans from all across the world, many of which don't speak Hebrew.

This is the kind of song one would hear on Israeli radio at memorial days or after terror attacks. With world wide natural disasters hitting one after another in the last few days - this song matches the global mood of catastrophe.

Hebrew lyrics: here.
Autotranslated: here

I fixed translation, might have misunderstood some lines (poems tend to play language and metaphorical games)
I carry with me the sorrow and silence,
The view of muteness we burned with fear,
Wasn't you who told me: "The city is so empty"
Wasn't you who told me: "We'll keep silence together."

Yesterday in my window roses of comfort died,
In my window the open spaces view was,
Only streets still smiling at full width,
Every window is lighter to light the evenings.

Let's go out again to the outdoors where we walked before,
To my favorite park benches.
Maybe we'll meet another face that we have forgotten,
May hear again the same song.

In those dreams on the cold bench,
In those dreams will set our past to sleep.
Until one day a tall, familiar,
Will fall back on our necks with kisses.

SHOCKING: US betrays Israel at UNHRC, calls for war crimes probe

And now - Israel is truly alone in the world. Despite massive support and love for Israel in the USA, the current administration has a different agenda.

I'm not a reactionary, I won't say:'well... yaaa - what about what America did in ____'. No point in that. The hypocrisy and injustice are self evident.

America calls for Hamas to investigate war crimes too? Seriously?! HAMAS is a terror group purposely committing war crimes. The Goldstone report is a 'seal of approval' of every possible blood libel.

This administration has gone the most despicable route. Jimmy Carter the II will drive us to the next holocaust on an express train. Perhaps not an express train: On a county fair roller coaster.

U.S. to Israel: Probe alleged Gaza war crimes to advance peace
The United States called on its close ally Israel on Tuesday to conduct credible investigations into allegations of war crimes committed by its forces in Gaza, saying it would help the Middle East peace process.

Michael Posner, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State, said that Hamas leaders also had a responsibility to investigate crimes and to end what he called its targeting of civilians and use of Palestinian civilians as human shields in the strip.

The UN Human Rights Council was holding a one-day debate on a recent report by Richard Goldstone, a South African jurist and former U.N. war crimes prosecutor.

His panel found the Israel Defense Forces and Palestinian militants committed war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity during their December-January war. Israel did not cooperate with the UN inquiry and has rejected the report as biased.

"We encourage Israel to utilize appropriate domestic [judicial] review and meaningful accountability mechanisms to investigate and follow-up on credible allegations," Posner said in a speech to the Geneva forum.

"If undertaken properly and fairly, these reviews can serve as important confidence-building measures that will support the larger essential objective which is a shared quest for justice and lasting peace," he said.

The United States joined the Council, set up three years ago, for the first time earlier this year.

Posner reiterated Washington's view that the Council paid "grossly disproportionate attention" to Israel, but said that the U.S. delegation was ready to engage in balanced debate.

I'm not religious, the following is just a figure of speech: Pray for Israel to survive Obama, pray!

Try to disengage from Iran related news for your own sanity

Yes the horrible news continue pouring. I think some people can't take the pressure and the openness of the threats against Israeli civilians causing real severe anxiety. It's time put trust in elected leaders of Israel and France (notice all those leaders I don't mention), and await concrete actions. We are obviously approaching some sort of action.

When Israelis will finish fasting today (any minute now), they'll be treated with a barrage of news relating to Iranian missiles, new Iranian threats, and embarrassing news regarding US diplomatic speak.

It's at this point that I'd mention that the only reason we hear such news is because FINALLY things are happening, and while I'm never really an optimist, I make a choice to drink some cool-aid and take a big breath.

A word to the people who live in Russia: I know that speaking up might produce 'mysterious accidents', but be aware that Russians will suffer as much as everyone else if nuclear war heads start flying around the region. Russia had better pick sides, and for the first time in it's history it better be the right one.

Can Russians really not smell Mushrooms? (clouds)

PS. Who made the choice to show the movie 'sum of all fears' yesterday on FX? Just random choice?

The Philippines has appealed for international aid as it struggled to cope with floods that killed at least 140 people and displaced nearly half a million.

"We are appealing for international humanitarian assistance... for (relief from) the effects of tropical storm Ketsana," Defence Secretary Gilberto Teodoro said in a nationally televised briefing.

Toll is rising to 140 - could be higher, millions displaced.

Homegrown Al Qaeda Cell Popping

(This post goes off track too fast, but I'm sure you'll still appreciate it)

Allow me to supply knee jerk one liners:
* Nothing to do with Islam
* Those damn Methodists again
* It's the occupation...maaaaaaaan, if only our president could chastise Israel at the UN rainbows and unicorns will save gaya. Pffffffff, oooh that doobi is gooooood. (stoner in chief)
* Quick, to the nearest interfaith confrence
* Aren't we lucky the war on terror man made disaster isn't real
* Because us westerners abused the words Jihad, Mujahidin, Istish'had, Shahada, Shahid and misrepresented Islam... oh wait
* Because there's nothing wrong with NOI and Saudi sponsored Madrassahs in the US
* It's those damn Islamophobes.
* It's racial profiling
* It's the whites poisoning blacks and poor, quick - redistribute their wealth
* Obviously the home grown Al-Qaeda haven't embraced hope and change
* Gee... and I thought tearing apart the CIA would do so much good
* Green jobs, that'll fix it, stimulus and 'inclusiveness'

WSJ: U.S. al Qaeda Cell Suspected
Officials Suggest Group Is First Uncovered Here Since 9/11; Zazi in Court Thursday
The terror probe that burst into the spotlight in New York last week may have led authorities to the first active al Qaeda cell uncovered inside the U.S. since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, according to officials familiar with the matter.

Current and former U.S. officials say the allegations in the case embody their worst fears -- that a legal U.S. resident could quietly leave the country, receive explosives training from al Qaeda in a lawless region of Pakistan, then return to U.S. soil.

Thus far, a 24-year-old Afghan immigrant and two others have been charged only with lying to federal agents in a terrorism investigation. Assessing the conclusions reached by federal authorities, who say they don't know what the group was planning, is difficult. A fuller accounting won't be possible until the men go to trial and possibly not even then.

Hundreds of terrorism-related prosecutions, many for far more serious charges than lying to investigators, have been filed by U.S. authorities since the 9/11 attacks. On numerous occasions, U.S. officials have made startling allegations about terrorism suspects, only to later significantly dial back their rhetoric.

LA Times: Terrorism probe focuses on Afghan man in Colorado
Nothing to see here, we need to 'hope'n'change' the world right now.

Don't dip your iPod in honey...

Satire site created video which pisses the Swedes and Norwegians off

Pretty lame video, but got enough Scandinavians ticked off.

With classic remarks by said Swedes and Norwegians:
"Jews killed Jesus and are now killing Palestinians. "
"S i o n i s t b a s t a r d s. "
"Wow, this was pathetic. Who thinks this is good satire? There's not a single joke in the entire sketch.

And it's a shame that Israel can't take any constructive criticism without jelling "anti-semite" as loud as the possibly can. It's like speaking to a brick wall.
When we criticize Israel then that is only what we criticize. We're not criticizing Jews, because that is irrelevant for the most of us. I know it is for me." [You mean harvesting organs blood libel is criticism of Israel?! Constructive...]

"Go back to the Gaschamber

Greetings from Sweden. "

UN's Israel war crimes report: Lies, detached from reality, reinvents international law

I won't claim I will spend one second of my time going through that garbage, but Elder-Of-Ziyon is:

* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 1
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 2
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 3
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 4
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 5
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 6
* Goldstone report inaccuracies part 7

EoZ found that Goldstone relied on HRW, and other groups who have been shown to be liars making up numbers and accusations. He shows that Goldstone proclaims Gaza is still occupied by Israel. That Goldstone managed to separate between Hamas and all the terror actions taken against Israel.

The sad truth, this report is a declaration of war against Israel by the UN. It's not a low point - it's the worst abuse of the international body ever perpetrated. Sadly, I believe lefties in the US will latch on and buy into these accusation. Some have speculated Obama would stoop to using this report to put further pressure on Israel.

* Kangaroo Court Issues Its Verdict -- Goldstone Speaks
* In wake of Gaza probe, how can Israel go to war again?
* Israel readies for diplomatic war over 'biased' UN Gaza report
* NGO Monitor: The Goldstone “Fact Finding” Mission and the Role of Political NGOs - Discussing Goldstone relationship with HRW - board member who resigned after assigned by UN to do his worst against Israel

UN: The saying 'See no evil hear no evil' - isn't strong enough here, the UN does evil.
Question to UN, How did you miss this war crime for 8 years and manage to exonerate Gazans from responsibility?! I bet they open Champagne bottles at the UN offices every time a Jewish child is murdered by the Hamasholes.

Richard Goldstone, an enemy of Israel and the Jewish people. A friend to murderers and terrorists. Truly, the worst person in the world.
He can proclaim to be Jewish by genes, he can practice Judaism - Richard Goldstone is not a Jew, he is by his action a Nazi. A law bending Jews hater.

Apperantly there's some controversy regarding San Francisco Jewish Film Festival

I've yet to see a 'Jewish Film Festival' in the US which was not infested with leftism. It reflects the population, which generally votes left.

There's some controversy - and I did not follow any of it, so I'll trust reader Sam who wrote this:
FYI, maybe something you might want to pick up on your excellent blog:


Shanah tovah,

International campaign of bias and hatered to Israel yields UN report claiming Israel comitted war crimes

Where was the UN during 8 years of rocket shelling of Israelis? This is one of the lowest points of the history of the UN. Surely, whenever the UN hits bottom, it continues digging.

UN probe: Evidence of war crimes in Gaza conflict

Israel's foreign minister response:

The Foreign Ministry issued a statement following the UN's Goldstone report, accruing Israel of committing war crimes during Operation Cast Lead:

"The Goldstone report is rewriting a shameful chapter in international law and nations' right to defend themselves and we will treat it accordingly. Israel is appalled and disappointed in the report, which compares it to Hamas and rewards acts of terror," it said.

Dutch Jews targeted by angry mobs of Muslim immigrants

The result of 'tolerance to the intolerant'. I'm optimistic regarding Holland only because I know that the opposition to Muslim immigration is gaining strength. Whereas regarding the rest of the European continent... well - the Swedish blood libel proved in which direction that continent is going. Old antisemitism, mixed with extreme Dhimitude.

'Dutch Jews suffered tenfold increase in anti-Semitic attacks during Gaza war'
The number of anti-Semitic incidents documented in Holland in January almost equaled the number of attacks recorded throughout the whole of 2008, according to the annual report by the country's watchdog on anti-Semitism.

The report by the Hague-based Center for Information and Documentation (CIDI) presents 98 attacks in January, as the Israel Defense Forces was attacking in Gaza. The total number of attacks in 2008 was 108.

Unusually, CIDI criticized the justice system and police for allegedly not acting with sufficient promptness to ensure safety and security, and for not imposing a ban on Holocaust denial.
The month of January saw a tenfold increase in anti-Semitic attacks compared to the average nine attacks per month in the previous year.

The number of physical attacks during January was nine. Only three such attacks were recorded in 2007, and five in 2008. The remaining attacks were of hate speech and mail.

CIDI says the volume of circulation of hate speech and mail was larger than in recent years. Most cases of physical harassment, intimidation and assault were the result of the actions of perpetrators of North African descent, said the report by CIDI, which has in the recent past been involved with dialogue between Jews and Muslims.

An analysis of hate-mails revealed most denied or downplayed the Holocaust by comparing it with Israel's attack in the Gaza Strip, which came in retaliation for the targeting of Israeli citizens by Palestinians.

The 43-page report also speaks of an increasing trend of anti-Semitic statements and incidents in schools. This included an incident in an Amsterdam school which suspended lessons after students chanted anti-Jewish slogans. A Rotterdam did the same, after pupils sang: "Hamas, Jews to the gas" and "Jews are murderers."

"Something must be done about the numerous holes in the processing of complaints by the police, states the report, which was compiled by Elise Friedmann and released last week. "The many current gaps in the system offer little prospect for effectiveness in the judicial approach to discrimination," she wrote.

The recommendations chapter of CIDI's report called for stricter implementation of limitations on hate speech. CIDI also said the police appear to be reluctant to process reports of anti-Semitism.

Finally, CIDI said proposals to decriminalize Holocaust denial in the Netherlands encourage Holocaust denial. In May, the leader of the Dutch liberal party, Mark Rutte, said that claiming the Holocaust did not occur "should be made possible."

Should speech be banned? I'm a strong believer in free speech, without restraints - as is the American version. Libel can be filed where private persons are lied about, and criminal charges only in the 'screaming fire in a crowded theater' scenarios.

That being said, there's no reason to allow public airwaves to foreign propaganda machines, such as Hezbollah's TV stations.

In a healthy free society enough sane voices should be heard condemning the history denying, conspiracy theorist loons. The fact that loons are free to voice their idiocy and hateful speech only allows us to scrutinize who they are.

Which I think worked pretty well last week in the US, where a certain Obama adviser quit in the middle of the night, hiding from public outcry when his own words were revealed to show the nature of this administration and its employee.

Europeans have an odd habit of distorting the notion of free speech, banning what is deemed politically unacceptable (talking about negatives of Muslim immigration and culture of violence), while praising blood libel. Jews are still the acceptable target whereas Muslims are considered by these uber loony Europeans victims.

You reap what you sow, and Europeans aren't ashamed anymore at their history.

Israel Media Ignores Gvmt and Family Request, Publishes Shalit Letter

Disgraceful, for a little bit of attention - they cause so much pain

Media Ignore Government Advice, Hype Old Shalit Letter
Israeli media Tuesday evening again ignored government advice and hyped the plight of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit and possibly endangered chances to free him. Websites published a letter that he wrote three years ago but whose basic content had been partially disclosed more than two years ago.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu recently echoed sentiments of officials working for the soldier’s release by stating that the media have harmed Shalit by allowing Hamas to use rumors, official statements and other methods to manipulate emotions among Israelis.

They explained that commotion over the soldier, who was kidnapped in June 2006, plays into the hands of terrorists who hold out for the release of hundreds of fellow terrorists by Israel.

Despite recent editorials in major newspapers that have agreed with the government, the same media published for the first time Tuesday night a letter that Shalit wrote to his parents in September 2006 and which previously has been deciphered as being written under duress.

The complete letter, printed below, adds no information to what was formerly known by previously published excerpts. Parts of the letter disclosed more than two years ago included appeals to the government to work for his release and that he was suffering from poor health and emotional duress.

The full letter stated, "To Mom, Dad, my brother and friends. Greetings. My health is deteriorating from day to day. It is especially difficult for me emotionally, and this causes me frequent depression. I am waiting for this insufferable and inhumane ordeal in which I am found to end and that I will be freed from this closed and isolated prison, especially since my 20th birthday has passed, which I had hoped we would celebrate together.

"I am appealing to the government and especially to [former] Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and [former] Defense Minister Amir Peretz to do everything possible to free me as quickly as possible because every that passes is worse for me, and to answer the demands of the el-Mujahadeen who arrested me from my tank near Kerem Abu-Salem [Kerem Shalom crossing].

“I hope you will do everything so that I can celebrate Rosh HaShanah and Sukkot at home."

Israeli media competed for taking credit for publishing the letter, with Yediot Acharonot's Ynet website claiming it was exclusive, Haaretz stating it was published with permission and the Jerusalem Post reporting that the letter made a “sudden appearance” on several websites.

I feel for the poor soldier and his family. That being said, my opinion differs a lot form most Israelis. If only Israel would employ the death penalty for terrorists, this issue wouldn't exist.

The Van Jones/Obama pro-Palestinians, anti Israel connection

I totally missed out on this. I just didn't listen to the audio Jones made with the cop murderer 'Mumia Abu Jamal'. I heard it on the radio for the first time today, and Glenn Beck did make me think, is this Obama's view on Israel? That Israel's Arab citizen - not west bank Arabs, live under 'occupation', and that 'the right of return must be implemented'? Please give me a reason to think otherwise, that this is not now nor has it ever been the president of the USA's point of view regarding Israel. Any reason?

Read and listen:
Verum Serum: Van Jones: A Radical, Anti-War Record Producer as Well?

(Verum Serum link from Gateway Pundit)

Hamas losing support in polls? So what - so is Ahmedinajad

And Ahmedinajad "won" the election, same for Assad. How do polls matter in regions of complete disarray, mayhem, murder where the only aspiration of people is to destroy the opponent - which just happens to be Israel at this case.

Anecdotal data which to me only signals backward optimism:
* Fatah was still able to edge Hamas by 3% in Gaza, where 33% of those polled said they favored Fatah, compared to 30% for Hamas
* Fifty-seven percent of Palestinians in the West Bank also said they disapprove of Hamas, but only 16% disapproved "strongly."
* When asked who was responsible for the current crisis in Gaza, Israel was overwhelmingly blamed by all the groups polled. But while 5% of Egyptians and Jordanians blamed Hamas for the current crisis, 35% of Palestinians in the West Bank said Hamas was to blame, while 16% of Gazans agreed.
* While 35% of the other groups polled stressed the importance of releasing captive IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, an overwhelming two-thirds of Gazans said the same.
* Fifty-six percent of West Bank Palestinians said that in retrospect, they wished Arafat had accepted the agreement, while 50% of Jordanians and 39% of Egyptians said the same. In Gaza, 57% of those polled said they did not regret Arafat's rejection of the deal.

When reading poll data, a fun thing to do with how it is reported is to invert the message, that is - if 56% wish Arafat had signed a final peace treaty, that's 44% who say they would never accept any peace with Israel. 66.6% of Gazans say they approve of releasing Shalit, that's 33.3 who think holding a human being for a punching bag for ever is a good idea.

Source, JPost: Poll: Hamas approval rating extremely low

And again, reading the title of this article I ask - so what if Hamas' 'approval rating' is low - it's a barbaric murderous tribal society, approval ratings do not matter to them. Once they took control by force, they won't let go. There are enough crazies in their ranks - and the only way to make a living in Gaza-hell is to appease the oppressing Iranian/Hamas regime. Want to make a living in Gaza? Work for Hamas. Checkmate by Hamas against Gaza's Arabs, end of story (for a long while).

The 'Van Jones understatement' of the year

MSNBC weren't honest enough to write their own article about 'Van Jones', so they just posted an AP one, where we find this statement:
Jones, well-known in the environmental movement, was a civil-rights activist in California before shifting his attention to environmental and energy issues. He is known for laying out a broad vision of a green economy. Conservatives have harshly criticized him for having left-wing political views.

Communism, not just for being a lefty. The convergence of the Democratic party with communism is being hushed here. Jones is a self described communist with a knack for 'whity hate'. Why so polite? Is Commie-Red so acceptable - if it is Democrats should stop lying about it and try to campaign on that agenda. See how well that works.

Van Jones Resigns

He waited for after midnight on a long weekend, so he's a Cinderella too... :-)

Expect the 'I'm a victim of vast right wing conspiracy' parade.

It only took them... forever to awaken to the issue. Still, downplaying it, blaming 'right wing extremists' for making a mountain out of a racist communist employed as an adviser to the president in the white house.

Also kudos to Jake Tapper from ABC (white house corresponded I think) who did mention this issue more than once on his blog.

This guy should never have been hired to work at the white house. Not a Green Czar, nor a Red Czar. A race hatred peddler who decided to jump on the green bandwagon to advance his revolutionary ideas. Recruiting this guy by the Obamas shows exactly who they are.

Choice quotes:

Black Panther-esque speak:
In 1995, he started Bay Area PoliceWatch, a program that assists victims of alleged police brutality. He made his mark as an activist by brashly saying things no other civil-rights leaders would say, such as "Willie Brown's Police Commission is killing black people."

Whitey giving cancer to Oakland blacks:
"Our question is, will the green wave lift all boats? That's the moral challenge to the people who are the architects of this new, ecologically sound economy. Will we have eco-equity, or will we have eco-apartheid? Right now we have eco-apartheid. Look at Marin; they've got solar this, and bio this, and organic the other, and fifteen minutes away by car, you're in Oakland with cancer clusters, asthma, and pollution."

Path to communism:
Jones had planned to move to Washington, DC, and had already landed a job and an apartment there. But in jail, he said, "I met all these young radical people of color -- I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, 'This is what I need to be a part of.'" Although he already had a plane ticket, he decided to stay in San Francisco. "I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary." In the months that followed, he let go of any lingering thoughts that he might fit in with the status quo. "I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th," he said. "By August, I was a communist."

I believe this is Glenn Beck's favorite quote, with a good reason:
First, he discarded the hostility and antagonism with which he had previously greeted the world, which he said was part of the ego-driven romance of being seen as a revolutionary. "Before, we would fight anybody, any time," he said. "No concession was good enough; we never said 'Thank you.' Now, I put the issues and constituencies first. I'll work with anybody, I'll fight anybody if it will push our issues forward. ... I'm willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends."

A big WTF quote from the article:
Although he had spent many childhood summers in "sweaty black churches," and in college had discovered the black liberation theology that reinterprets the Christ story as an anticolonial struggle, he had pulled away from spirituality during his communist days. During his 2000 crisis, he looked for answers in Buddhism, the philosophy known as deep ecology, and at open-minded institutions such as the East Bay Church of Religious Science.

Deep rooted hatred to white people, as racist as they come:
I'm confused half the time about what I'm doing, but none of the things that leftists use to discipline each other into marginality have any power over me anymore," he said. "It's like, 'Oh, you're working with white people.' Or 'Who are you accountable to?'

True goal, subvert any 'green discussion' to race and communism justice discussion:
We're still not at a place where social justice and mainstream environmental groups believe they're fighting for the same things," she said. "As far as bridging those divides, Van definitely has the skill sets and the experience and the personality to play a role in that."

Apollo groups roots in 60-s terrorist revolutionaries wasn't enough, Van Jones worked to insert black racism too:
Around that same time, the Apollo Alliance was launched in Washington, DC, with a catchy slogan: good jobs, clean energy. Modeled after President Kennedy's famous challenge to America to put a man on the Moon, the alliance is an effort to inspire the country into a frenzy of environmentally friendly inventiveness. But Jones approached the Apollo organizers because he believed that their original formulation of environmentalists plus labor unions wasn't ambitious enough. "I wanted to enrich their framework, which I thought started out with too little racial-justice understanding," he said. He was already working on the Ella Baker Center's own environmental program, but saw the Apollo Alliance as a useful partner, with a national platform. "I was met with absolutely open arms," he said.

Kids-Speech-Gate/ Commander-in-teach Update, from Dexter MI

Hour changed to 12pm, our kids will be discharged from school at 12:25.

There's a 'Frequently Asked Questions' page, which answers no real frequently asked question recently - specifically 'what the F?!'.

How soon will Obama throw Van Jones under the bus

First, some Van Jones trutherism on Glenn Beck:

H/T: hotair
Then, the not so very original, not very funny 'under my bus' poking fun at Obama's habit of throwing the inconvenient under the bus - until the election.

Now that the election is ancient history, will Obama really stop pretending and start saying what he thinks aloud? His actions thus far spoke louder than words. Hiring these loons, these communists, these Czars speaks volumes. Bus or no Bus - not firing this guy would say: 'ok you got me and I stop making excuses, Van Jones speaks for me'. Firing this guy says: 'I'm a mumbling buffoon - pay no attention to what my left hand is doing as I wave my right one'.

I'm still amazed Obama's approval ratings are above 20%, heck - above the 5% still identifying self as 'communists' in this nation.

Unlike Arab 'refugees' in 1948 who made the decision to run, Jews fleeing Iraq were chased away

There have been plenty of stories regarding Arabs themselves admitting it was not 'the Jews' who have put them on trucks and deported them, rather a collective decision to walk away 'temporarily', or in admission of defeat and fear of reprisal for the horrors they committed against Jews prior to Israel's independence.

Here's one story of a Jewish refugee from Iraq's 1970-s riots against Jews:
'Anne Frank from Baghdad'
In recent years, many Jews from Iraq have started to talk about what happened to them. But I was so hurt and so locked into myself that I didn't think I could deal with it," says Linda Abu-Aziz Menuhin, who in 1970 fled anti-Jewish violence in Baghdad. "More recently I've felt that I needed to heal this very bad bruise, so I am in the process of opening up. Now I say that having to leave my home in Iraq was my nakba - my catastrophe."

"Nakba Day," inaugurated by Yasser Arafat in 1998, is meant to counter Israel's Independence Day celebrations, commemorating losses suffered by Arabs who fled their homes during the War of Independence.

In fact hardly a day passes when the subject of millions of Palestinian refugees seeking a "right of return" to their lost properties - or compensation for them - isn't discussed in relation to Middle East peace negotiations. Somewhere between 500,000 and 750,000 Arabs fled their homes during the War of Independence in 1948; 60-plus years later, these refugees and their offspring number more than four million, living both in refugee camps and in residential communities. The story of their losses and their controversial politicization is a familiar subject for journalists, activists, politicians, and Middle East observers.

Meanwhile, another refugee story - the history that Linda Menuhin represents - is far from familiar.

FROM 1948 to 1970, 850,000 to a million Jews fled or were expelled from Arab lands. Many of these forgotten refugees were members of ancient Jewish communities that predated Christianity. More than a few were wealthy, powerful and successful. Nearly all of them left their homes with little more than the shirts on their backs, leaving behind houses, bank accounts, investments, personal treasures and their means of livelihood. They resettled, mostly in Israel. From then until now, they have received no reparations, no inventory of their lost possessions and virtually no consideration in negotiations for Middle East peace.

According to scholar Maurice M. Roumani, "In contrast to the high profile maintained by the Palestinian refugees, Jewish refugees in Israel began a costly rehabilitation program and played down their refugee status as much as possible. Their story was little known until 1976, when a new organization named WOJAC [World Organization of Jews from Arab Countries] undertook to make their voice heard so that no Middle East refugee settlement could take place without their claims being part of the equation. These claims are based on both historical and legal rights from centuries of continuous living in the Mediterranean region under Muslim rule."
Iraq, like North Africa, Egypt, Syria, Lebanon and Yemen, once had a thriving and historic Jewish community. Iraq's Jewish population numbered around 135,000 in 1948, with over 77,000 Jews living in Baghdad alone. Today fewer than 10 Jews remain in the country.

Linda Menuhin wasn't yet born when modern anti-Semitic violence first struck Iraq in 1941; it began with a pogrom, the Farhud, instigated by Nazi-collaborator Haj Amin el-Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem. During the Farhud, 180 Jews were murdered and nearly 250 wounded. Persecution ebbed and flowed until 1948, following the establishment of modern Israel, when tens of thousands of Iraqi Jews lost their property and assets and ran for their lives.

Then came the Six Day War. Linda remembers all too well the terrifying months following Israel's military victory against several Arab nations in 1967.

"After the Six Day War, I really began to feel afraid," she explains. "The trouble began with a protest around the British Institute in Waziriya building. I had to leave my classroom by a back door before the end of a test that would qualify me to study in a British university, GCE. I could hear the radio very loud, shouting how the Arabs had won the war and how many Israeli warplanes they had destroyed. We could feel the heat, on the radio, in the market. We knew it wasn't true because at night we used to listen to Kol Yisrael, which was an Arab language broadcast.

"But then Jews started being arrested. One of our very close friends was living with his old father. They came to pick him up from his house, 'just for questioning,' or so they said. They brought his body back in a sack."

Within two months, Baghdad's Jews were living in terror, keeping themselves out of sight. Their sports and social clubs were closed, their phones cut off and their assets frozen. Horrifying stories of abduction and murder circulated. Linda's family was evicted from its home.

IN DESPERATION, Linda sent a letter to an aunt in America, telling of the Jews' terrible conditions in Baghdad. She wrote it in French, hoping Iraq's government censors wouldn't intercept it. The aunt sent the letter on to Israel. It was published in Ma'ariv, beneath the headline "Anne Frank from Baghdad." In 1969, the crisis came to a grisly climax when nine innocent Jews were publicly hanged in Baghdad, accused of spying for Israel.

Four years later, Linda wrote her youthful impressions of the scene, " was really a blow, a shock to see the Liberation Square on TV crowded with people dancing and singing as if they were celebrating a feast or a wedding. Our nine victims were... suspended in the air, on improvised scaffolds... their heads were twisted and drooping and their bodies dangled from the gallows. The attitude of the crowd proved to be savage, barbarous and ferocious. They cursed the dead, spat and pelted stones on them. It was the most humiliating, distressing, unforgettable sight I had seen in my life. My cheeks were flooded with tears. Our agony was beyond description."

Eventually, against her parents' wishes, Linda managed to escape from Iraq with her brother. The two made their way to Teheran, guided by mercenaries, and finally on to Israel. Linda's father, a well-known Baghdad attorney, was taken into custody by Iraqi authorities not long thereafter, never to be seen again. She continues to seek out people who knew him, who might tell her the details of his final days.

Is Hezbollah broke, or did they just acquire Iranian weapons of mass destruction?

Or both, as it so happen, this is the latest batch of news. Hezbollah lost a huge chunk to a ponzy scheme - and have received weapons of mass destruction.

Lebanon arrests Hizbullah-linked tycoon

Lebanese authorities are holding in custody a prominent Shi'ite financier close to Hizbullah on suspicion of fraud after he invested hundreds of millions of dollars of other people's money before declaring bankruptcy, judicial officials said Wednesday.

The Kuwait-based newspaper Al-Watan reported that Hizbullah incurred some $683 million in losses as a result of Salah Ezzedine's activities.

Still - despite the financial blow - the next war seems closer than ever:
Traces of chemical weapons found in Hezbollah warehouse
Kuwaiti newspaper reports Hizballah built a number of warehouses that stored chemical weapons, among them the warehouse which exploded in July

The Kuwaiti newspaper, al-Seyassah, reported Thursday that the Hezbollah arms warehouse which exploded on July 14 in the town of Hirbat Salim in Lebanon stored chemical weapons.

According to the report, Hezbollah operatives refused to give access to the Lebanese Armed Forces and to the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) for 24 hours after the explosion until experts from the Shiite militia removed trails of the chemical material.

The report, which is based on intelligence sources of European units acting in conjunction with UNIFIL, claims that Hezbollah received a number of air shipments from Iran, which arrived through airports in Syria and carried thousands of gas masks, chemical and biological warfare equipment and warning devices for weapons of mass destruction.

The sources passed their reports to a number of capitals in the European Union, as well as to the headquarters of NATO in Brussels, in which they claimed Hezbollah constructed a number of warehouses that contained chemical weapons since last December.

The alleged caches were spread out in the Lebanon Valley, the Beirut-Damascus route in the center of the country and on both sides of the Litani River, especially around Tyre, outside of the UNIFIL forces deployment area.

The same sources added that although Hezbollah operatives attempted to remove all the remains of chemical materials, in an investigations that began shortly after the explosion in Hirbat Salim, traces of chemical leaks were detected.

At least eight Hezbollah militants were killed during the explosion, and others were injured and taken to near hospitals in Tyre and south Lebanon according to the report.

What the...?! Creepy celebrities 'I pledge' video

* I missed out on first publishing this post: THIS VIDEO WAS PLAYED FOR LITTLE SCHOOL CHILDREN IN UTAH!!!

The following was unleashed in January 2009, still creepy. I'm assuming Ashton's Mensa card membership has been revoked since...(sarc)

'Pledge to be of service to Barak Obama'

Bunch of pumped up heroin induced people with too much money - who can't see a 'strong man' Marxist on the rise grinning at their face.


I pledge to never worship a man or an idol!!! I hope most sensible people will pledge the same.

The use of the word 'pledge' is not at all subtle. First they replace the pledge of allegiance to the constitution with this horrible leader worshiping, next the constitution and the freedoms it promises. So sick - my words are too benign to describe.

H/T: Malkin - I hope she's wrong and this is not what our kids will be subjected to on first day of school. I'm losing hope - while absorbing 'change'.

Please ask your leftist friends, how do you excuse Van Jones?

Read more on hotair

I'm holding back. I don't write what I think about Obama. I have my reasons. I'm no longer holding on to any hopes that I was mistaken regarding who Obama is. Simply extremely disappointed at the American public for electing him, and refusing to heed the warnings.

Ayers and J. Wright were no fluke. How did you miss that America?

US Diplomatic envoy obstructs IDF security special ops in West Bank

What exactly in this story makes sense? American diplomatic emissaries foiling IDF operations - to what end? What exactly is Obama and Clinton's goal here?!

Worst - those diplomats mission right now is to gather testimonies against Israel. To monitor Israel's actions, baby sit and coordinate with PA officials.

If the US is so inclined to have an Anti-Israel consulate which helps and gives aid to the PA, it should be located within the PA, not in Jerusalem. This is an ongoing insult to Jews and Israel. With such a 'pro-Israel' congress, and a 'pro-Israel' Democratic party in control of the USA - what is happening right now is infuriating. Is Israel the next Honduras? Sacrificed and punished globally to please 'new' US interests, ones that are unknown and unacceptable to the general American public.

IDF cuts down West Bank raids for fear U.S. diplomats will see
The Israel Defense Forces has canceled a number of planned arrest operations in the West Bank fearing soldiers will be seen by American diplomats touring the territories.

IDF officers serving with their units in the West Bank said they were instructed by brigade commanders in recent weeks to call off the planned arrests of wanted men inside Palestinian towns, because of these diplomats' presence.

The diplomats, mostly employees of the U.S. consulate in East Jerusalem, have been traveling regularly to the West Bank to gather testimony on settlement construction, to oversee American-funded projects and to meet with Palestinian Authority officials.

"We were told that the situation with the Americans is sensitive, and that it is not desirable that operations are conducted that could lead to violent situations when they [the Americans] are there," one of the officers said.

In recent months, the IDF has removed most of the checkpoints in the West Bank, decreased the frequency of its entries into Palestinian towns and transferred responsibility for security in some of the areas to the Palestinian Authority.

However, IDF troops still occasionally carry out arrests of wanted Palestinians, mainly of people suspected of belonging to terrorist organizations or of having carried out low-level terror attacks.

According to IDF newspaper Bamahane, there was a 9 percent drop in 2008 in indictments submitted against Palestinian civilians for terror-related offenses.
