Iranian weapons heading for Hamas were seized in Nigeria

International cooperation of secret services lead to this seizure, no doubt.

Weapons seized in Nigeria 'came from Iran'
Crates of weapons including rocket launchers and mortars seized in Nigeria this week were loaded in Iran by a local trader, the company which shipped the containers said on Saturday.

French-based shipping group CMA CGM said it had been the victim of a false cargo declaration and that the weapons and ammunitions were in sealed containers which had been declared as "packages of glass wool and pallets of stone".

Nigeria's secret service intercepted the 13 containers in the country's main port of Lagos - one of Africa's busiest - this week and said it found rocket launchers, grenades and other explosives and ammunition.

"The shipment in question was booked as a 'shipper's owned container' and supplied loaded and sealed by the shipper, an Iranian trader who does not appear on any 'forbidden persons' listing," CMA CGM said in a statement.

"The containers were loaded in Bandar Abbas and discharged in Lagos in July," it said, adding it was cooperating fully with local and international agencies investigating the shipment.

Israeli media reports, citing Israeli defence officials, have suggested the weapons may have been destined for Hamas Islamists in Gaza and that a new smuggling route was being tested. Israel's foreign ministry has declined to comment.

Israel says its arch-foe Iran bankrolls attempts to ship weapons to the Gaza Strip by sea or land routes. Iran says its support for Hamas is diplomatic only.

The Iranian embassy in Nigeria said it may issue a statement on the arms seizure in the coming days.

One shipment caught/reported... numerous made it through.

Hamas continues bombarding Israeli civilians with fruits of peace efforts

How would you like to raise children under a continuous bombardment? Sounds of falling shrapnel and explosions? This is terrorism, to terrorize the civilian population, even if none were hurt this time.

5 mortar shells fired from Gaza
Five mortar shells were fired from northern Gaza at southern Israel Monday.

Two shells landed in open areas in the Eshkol Regional Council, while three others exploded in Palestinian territory. No injuries or damage were reported.

Several mortar shells have been fired at the western Negev. Sunday saw three mortars hit Eshkol Regional Council, luckily causing no harm.

Mortar shells were also fired at Israel over the weekend, causing no harm.

This news tidbit is already buried and hidden in the MSM archives, while the anti-Israeli lefty groups are promoting 'Israelis abused Palestinians by putting their photos on facebook' nonsense.

Israeli Druze leader claims the Druze are descended from Jews or Israelites

There have always been some pretty spectacular guesses as to roots of Arabs and Druze around the historic Israeli lands. These claims refer to the secretive traditions of the Druze minorities. Intriguing.

MK Kara: Druze are Descended from Jews
For centuries, practitioners of the Druze religion took care not to reveal any information about the nature of their beliefs, rituals, and traditions. Under penalty of communal ostracism, or worse, members of Druze communities have refrained from telling any outsider more than basic details about their religion.

But now, the secret is out. Druze MK Ayoub Kara (Likud) says members of the Druze communities believe in many of the same things that Jews do. And that's not surprising, he adds, since the Druze are actually descended from the Jewish people - and he says he can bring genetic evidence to prove it.

According to Kara, who is politically allied with the Jewish nationalist camp, there are many aspects of Druze beliefs that mesh with Judaism: “All our prophets are Jewish ones – Moses, Judah, Jethro, and Zevulun, the son of Jacob.” In fact, he says, the Druze are likely one of the lost tribes of the Jewish people – probably Zevulun, considering his special status among them.

According to Kara, there are no vestigial Jewish practices among the Druze – as there are, surprisingly, among some Arabs in the Land of Israel – but one symbol has stuck with the Druze throughout the centuries. “Only among Druze do you find a red Star of David, in homes, cemeteries, and places of worship,” Kara says. “This is one sign that has been open and visible for centuries, unlike most of the other ones, yet few have noticed.”

If the Druze dropped most, if not all, Jewish ritual, it's because they feared the sword of Islam. “Unlike Jews and Christians, who have the status of “people of the Book” among Muslims, and are therefore are given some basic rights, Druze are simply heretics to Islam, and such heretics must be either converted or eliminated,” Kara explains. In fact, Druze were massacred by Muslims on several occasions, and “it would have been much worse if they had identified themselves as Jews.” As a result, the Druze initially converted to Christianity and subsequently took on a Muslim identity – but through it all, they never forgot their Jewish identity.

Those roots explain, at least in part, the fierce loyalty the Druze in Israel have to the state. “However, Druze here are too fearful to loudly proclaim their sympathies with Israel, or to convert to Judaism, although some do – because of the fear of what might happen to their brethren in Syria and Lebanon,” Kara said. Druze soldiers have given their lives for Israel and have risen high in IDF ranks. However, Druze tradition is to be loyal to whatever country rules the area they live in, so that Druze in Syria are loyal to Syria.

And then there is the genetic study, which shows that Druze display genetic attributes quite similar to those of Jews (see the study for the technical details). “A major genetic test from last year, the first extensive test done of the Druze, proves my contention clearly,” says Kara.

Not all experts are convinced – at least not yet. Tsvi MiSinai, an Israeli author who has conducted extensive investigations into the cultural and genetic background of the Arabs living west of the Jordan River, and who has concluded that the vast majority of them are descended from the Jewish nation, believes that more study is necessary. “According to the study, the genetic cluster of Druze coincides closely with those of the Samaritans, and is very close to the genetic clusters of Ashkenazim, Sephardim, and Jews from the Caucasus,” says MiSinai, author of an ambitious study on “Jewish nationhood” called “Brother Shall Not Lift Sword Against Brother.”

While the evidence so far is persuasive, MiSinai wants to see more. “We know from history that there were definitely Jewish villages that became part of the Druze community, mostly to avoid being forced to convert to Islam, such as the residents of the villages of Abu Snein and Yarcha. If the genetic samples were taken from there, it doesn't say much about the rest of the Druze. I would want to see more of an in-depth study,” MiSinai says.

Kara says that his evidence stands on its own merits. “For thousands of years the Druze suffered,” he said, “so it's understandable that they would be a little hesitant to come forward after only 60 years of Israel's existence. But when you check our beliefs – and our veneration of the great Jewish prophets – the matter should become clear.”

As doubtful as it may sound, this has better chances of being true than the Indian Manamasa tribe claim to be descended from Menashe Israelite tribe...

Wasn't Gaza evacuation a stunning success? Hamas gains Anti-Aircraft missiles

Do you think they can tell the difference between El-Al to Air-Jordan or Egyptian plains when they'll start shooting them out of the sky?

Netanyahu: Hamas has obtained anti-aircraft missiles
Israel's aerial freedom has been compromised by new weaponry in Gaza, presumably smuggled through tunnels connected to Egypt, PM tells Likud members for the first time.

I'm in Hong Kong right now, will probably not blog much this week.

Fatah and Hamas talk unity in effort to start new terror wave in response to Peace attempts

I'm somewhat amused by the language used by 'gulfnews'

Did you know that Israel has 'colonies'?

Tel Aviv stand on colonies unite Fatah and Hamas
Ramallah: The lack of an extension on a moratorium on colony construction by Israel has helped improve the relationship between Fatah and Hamas, given that the Palestinian National Authority is now looking for alternatives to the peace talks to move forward.

One option is to unite Palestinian political views in opposition to the Israeli government, to give it a stronger position in any future negotiations.

And reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah look likely to continue in spite of the ongoing uncertainty about the peace process. This was made clear in statements released by Hamas earlier this week.

Peace partners? What a joke.

Syria serious about peace says Swedish FM, too bad they're also serious about terror, war, hate and murder

Assad is a liar and those who dealt with him know it. He says he wants peace while arming and sponsoring terror groups. While contemplating war. While building nuclear weapons. While murdering neighboring Arab nation's leaders.

Sweden doesn't have a clean record with its relationship to Israel. They are highly supportive of Arab terror and have allowed Jews to be chased out of Malmo with unchallenged waves of anti-Semitic violent attacks. Did I say unchallenged? I meant encouraged by Malmo mayor...

'Assad said will press Hamas to recognize Israel'
Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt told former minister Yossi Beilin on Thursday that Syrian President Bashar Assad recognizes Israel and is willing to try and influence Hamas in this regard.

During their meeting in Stockholm, Bildt quoted Assad as saying that Syria "officially recognizes Israel, and this acknowledgment is part of the negotiations between the two countries."

According to the Swedish FM, the Syrian leader said he intends to convince Hamas to follow suit. Assad also said he believes the fact that Hamas' politburo is based in Damascus will help.

According to Bildt, Assad reiterated his desire to resume peace talks with Israel under Turkey's mediation. The Swedish FM told Beilin that Assad appears sincere in his intention to reach an agreement.

Syria is the neighborhood bully acting innocent when called to the principal's office.

UK Jews experience similar fate to 1930-s German Jews?

The direct result of being odiously so accommodating to the most hateful people on Earth while posing as non-antisemites who 'only criticize Zionism'. Denying Jews' right to self determination while accepting every claim from those who attempt to commit genocide against Jews IS antisemitism.

It has manifested into horrific violence and a regime of fear against those who practice the Jewish faith in England.

'European Jewish communities are in serious danger'
The European Jewish Congress (EJC) claimed that certain European Jewish communities are in serious danger after a recent wave of anti-Semitism, according to a statement released by the organization Thursday.

The statement gave a recent example of a respected and government-funded Catholic school in Antwerp that hosted a ‘Palestine Day’, which was replete with anti-Semitic references and activities for youngsters.

One stall at the event was titled “Throw the soldiers into the sea” where children were invited to throw replicas of Jewish and Israeli soldiers into two large tanks, the organization highlighted.

The EJC, which is the democratically elected representative umbrella organization of European Jewry, is calling on European governments and the European Union to launch a campaign against intolerance and anti-Semitism, so to remind European citizens that the new Europe was established after the Second World War on the concept of “Never Again.”

A number of examples of anti-Semitsm in Europe were highlighted by the EJC in an attempt to bring the issue to the attention of decison makers in Europe.

Another one of the examples highlighted by the organization involved anti-Semitism experienced in the Malmo Jewish community. An event organized for children of the Jewish community was disrupted after gang of thugs shouted “Heil Hitler” and “Jewish pigs.”

Newly elected mayor of the Swedish city, Ilmar Reepalu, considered the rise in anti-Semitsm an understandable consequence of the Israel-Palestine conflict and claimed “we accept neither Zionism nor anti-Semitism,” equating Jewish national self-determination with hate and racism.

In response to the rise in anti-Semitsm Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the EJC said “small Jewish communities are facing a situation where they are being physically, verbally and psychologically threatened by fundamentalist elements and their extreme left-wing cohorts on one side and the far-right neo-Nazis on the other.”

“If they can’t receive protection or respite from mainstream officials then we are entering a very dark period for the Jews in Europe,” Kantor continued.

A combination of the new Muslim immigrants hatred of Jews with the old and still very vibrant European anti-semitism is in action.

Lebanon Hearts Holocaust Denying Nuclear Armageddon Shiite Persian Global Terror Sponsor

It's a good thing the USA contributed so much money and arms to Lebanon after 2006 war...

Hey, IDF killer drones, target rich environment alert!

Lebanon Crowds Greet Ahmadinejad
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran arrived here Wednesday morning to an ecstatic welcome by supporters of Hezbollah, the militant Shiite movement that is backed by Iran. Thousands of cheering supporters thronged the road that leads from Beirut’s airport to the city, waving Iranian flags and chanting greetings in Farsi as Mr. Ahmadinejad’s convoy slowly passed.

The Iranian president’s first state visit here since he was elected in 2005 came at a time of rising tension in Lebanon. Hezbollah and its allies have been waging a campaign against the international tribunal investigating the 2005 assassination of the former prime minister, Rafiq Hariri, which is expected to indict several of the group’s members. Hezbollah and its allies have warned of disastrous consequences if that happens, and have pressured their political rivals to publicly disavow the tribunal.

American officials voiced their disapproval last week of Mr. Ahmadinejad’s visit, which underscores Tehran’s powerful role in Lebanon. After his arrival, Mr. Ahmadinejad appeared at a news conference with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman to announce a number of bilateral agreements on energy, trade and other issues. Iran, which has long provided arms and training to Hezbollah, has also offered to help equip the Lebanese Army, which has in recent years received support and training from the United States.

Mr. Ahmadinejad was to appear later on Wednesday at a rally organized by Hezbollah, and to visit Hezbollah’s stronghold in southern Lebanon on Thursday to highlight Iranian support for the group’s armed struggle with Israel.

Less American Jews think that Obama is totally awesome

Some believe he is delusional, dangerous and hostile to Israel. What?! Jeremiah Wright's flock member might be hostile to the 'evil Zionists'?

Don't get too excited, Liberal American Jews (about 80% of American Jews) for some reason put pro-abortion and redistribution of wealth as their top goals... they really won't ever consider voting GOP.

American Jews lost faith in Obama?
Have American Jews given up on US President Barack Obama? Senior members of the US Jewish community have spoken up against Obama's foreign policy regarding Israel, and in what is considered a rarity, have said that should he continue on his current path, they will stop their contributions to the Democratic Party.

Since taking office, it seems as if Obama has lost ground across every sector in the United States, but throughout, he has always enjoyed wide-scale support from US Jews.

Malcolm Hoenlein, the executive vice chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, told the Huffington Post that although the US president enjoyed a 78% support rate among American Jews at the time of his election, he has now lost about a third.

According to the report, the Obama administration has annoyed Jewish leaders to the point where they are thinking of sitting out the 2010 election. Federal Election Commission records show contributions to Democratic candidates from the financial sector, where Jews hold important positions, are down 65% from two years ago.

"I started breaking with Obama ten months ago," Martin Peretz, editor in chief of The New Republic, told the Huffington Post, "And I know that a lot of West Coast Jews are also having buyer's remorse."

Hollywood billionaire Haim Saban echoed the sentiment: "The assumption on the part of the Obama administration is that because Jews are liberals, they simply will not vote for Republicans.

"Obama can invite the ten most prolific Jewish campaign bundlers to the White House for a discussion, and give a wonderful speech, and he'll think that this may resolve all his problems with American Jews. And it may – or it may not."

Abraham Foxman, director of the Anti-Defamation League, has voiced his policy concerns to Obama directly. Foxman later said that when the two met, he told the US president that while he agreed with his overall Middle East agenda, the perception was that he was lashing out solely at Israel and exempting the Arabs.

While Obama refuted Foxman's premise, the latter said he still left the meeting feeling that the White House's new strategy was "dangerous."

The Obama administration, said Foxman, believes that if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is resolved, the wolf and the lamb shall dwell together and all will be well. To that end, all of his advisors are telling him that he should break away from his predecessors' policies and prove to the Arabs and the Muslims that he is different, that he can distance himself from Israel.

A question to the reporter, what did you add to the Huffington piece you quoted? Sure I took everything you wrote, but I put it in a quote-block. Let's also discuss some bias in reporting while I'm at it, Obama refuted Foxman's premise yet he remained unconvinced? Is this a joke? Anyways - I'm beginning to acquire some new respect for Foxman.

Loving Arab parents place children in middle of road to stone Jewish cars while placing 8 photographers

Whoever put the following video went a bit overboard with calling a stoning event a terror attack, however this was a well staged propaganda incident where the disregard for human life was on the side of Arabs and their army of propaganda photo-journalists employed by the various news wire services.

Like I mentioned yesterday, this seems to me like an attempt to grab some more headlines in the Arab world and mobilize the tired and defeated Arab population in the west bank to commit yet another suicidal war of terror.

Israel takes out terrorists who murdered to derail 'peace' talks, Fayad condemns

What was Israel supposed to do - let them murder again?

(more inspector Clouseau than a serious Arab leader...)
Fayyad slams IDF's killing of two Hamas terrorists
Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salem Fayyad responded harshly to the IDF's killing of two Hamas terrorists on Friday.

"The path to peace does not come by way of killing our citizens, harming them, establishing settlements or the terror of settlers," said Fayyad.

Earlier on Friday, Hamas's military-wing threatened revenge for the IDF's attack in Hebron that killed a senior Hamas operative an another Hamas activist in the city responsible for a recent deadly terror attack against Israelis.

In other news, I believe there are those who want to see a new 'Intifada' (murderous campaign against Jews aka huge pogrom) in response to the collapsed 'peace' talks.

The following pictures aren't helping:

165 Rockets and Mortars Fired At Israel in 2010, Israel Bombed Empty Buildings and Sand Dunes Overnight

Arabs claim to a second strike wounding 3, IDF denies (or not confirmed).

3 hurt in second IAF strike on Gaza in 24 hours, Palestinians say
Gaza eyewitnesses say vehicle hit by one missile launched from Israeli aircraft; strike comes hours after IAF hit Hamas targets in the coastal enclave.

Israeli aircraft struck a car traveling south of Gaza City late Thursday afternoon, wounding three people, Palestinian medical officials and witnesses said.

According to Palestinian witnesses, the Golf car was hit by one missile. Medical officials confirmed the three people injured in the strike were taken to a hospital in the centre of the Gaza Strip.

The report was not confirmed by the Israel Defense Forces.

The reported strike came hours after Israeli aircraft hit targets belonging to Hamas in an overnight raid on the enclave.

The Israeli raids were in retaliation for rocket attacks that had been launched from the salient on southern Israel, causing no injuries.

According to the Israeli military spokesman's office, a total of 165 rockets and mortars have been launched from the Gaza Strip at Israel so far this year.

Meanwhile in Israel, current big headline is a claim by Hamas-holes to have uncovered a mole who was later rescued by Israeli tank. How is the enemy's propaganda a major news item? Media keeps digging in open wound of abducted soldier Gilad Shalit.

Yesterday's terrorism news you've missed: Arabs fired 2 rockets towards Jewish towns, no injuries

Following the Turkish 'humanitarian' flotilla terror attack and ensued international hypocrisy explosion, Israel has ceased to even slow the flow of goods and cash to its terrorist foes. The situation now is that terrorists are free to bombard civilians without repercussions.

2 Qassams fired towards Negev; no injuries
Palestinian terrorists in northern Gaza fired two Qassams towards Israeli territory Wednesday afternoon. There were no reports of injury or damage.

One of the rockets landed in an open area in the Negev's Eshkol Regional Council, while the other landed near the security fence separating Israel and Gaza. The "Color Red" siren was not heard before either explosion.

Eshkol Regional Council head Haim Yalin linked the attacks to the recently launched peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Authority. "It is obvious that if the peace talks continue and Hamas finds itself with its back against the wall, the attacks will intensify."

"The[y (sic)] only speak the language of rockets," he added.

On Friday a Qassam landed in an open area in the western Negev, causing no injuries or damage.

Cool stuff: Israeli tilt-rotor drone

Swatting terrorists like flies.

Israeli Company Debuts Tilt-Rotor Drone
Israel, one of the world's leading makers of unmanned aircraft, unveiled today a new, small drone that can hover like a helicopter and fly like an airplane.

Israel Aerospace Industries debuted its Panther unmanned aerial vehicle in Israel, touting its ability to take off without a runway and then fly for up to six hours. "An intriguing option is the Panther's ability to hover or land quietly in enemy territory, conduct surveillance like a ground sensor and then take off again," industry magazine Aviation Week & Space Technology reported.

Like the American V-22 Osprey, the Panther is a tilt-rotor, meaning it has rotors mounted on the end of its wings that can rotate and allow the aircraft to transition between hovering and fixed-wing flight. This gives the aircraft the ability to take off like a helicopter without the need for a runway, but then fly like fixed-wing aircraft.

As an unmanned aircraft, however, the Panther is much smaller than the V-22 Osprey, which is designed for transporting troops. The Panther weighs in at just over 140 pounds and is designed for spying rather than transporting.

Israel Aerospace Industries is expected to display the aircraft later this month at a U.S. Army trade show to be held in Washington. The company says that special forces in other countries are interested in buying the vehicle, according to Flight International.

When Obama changed 'war on terror' - to contingency operation against some Al-Quada people he meant it; FBI helping Hamas?

OK, I doubt they knowingly help Hamas, I'd say they willfully act ignorant, and are ordered from the top to outreach every possible Muslim in the USA - regardless of what his file says. Hamas? CAIR? Holyland foundation what?! It's just a moderate Muslim, which like all moderate Muslims hates Jews and contributes to suicide bombing in Israel.

Why is FBI Helping Hamas?
Last Wednesday, the same day the Center for Security Policy called for the firing of counterterrorism czar John Brennan for gross ignorance and incompetence for failing to understand the threat from Islamic jihadis, the FBI’s Headquarters (FBIHQ) and the FBI’s Chicago Field Office were caught between revealing their complete incompetence, and engaging in what one government official called “an act of treason” by defending a senior Hamas operative.

Two days prior to this, investigative reporter and expert on the Islamic movement Patrick Poole first detailed how the FBI invited and allowed Sheikh Kifah Mustapha, a known Hamas operative, to attend the FBI’s Citizen’s Academy, a six-week program giving Americans an insight into the FBI and the U.S. government.

As a part of this program, Mustapha was given a tour of FBI Headquarters, the FBI training academy in Quantico, Va., the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC), and other government spaces. Poole followed that article up with detailed accounts of Musatapha and the FBI’s reaction to this story.

Mustapha is an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terrorism financing trial in U.S. history (U.S. v. Holy Land Foundation), where Holy Land Foundation (HLF) and its leadership were proven to be Hamas. Mustapha was previously a top official at HLF.

A senior government official told Poole that Mustapha’s name and details of his Hamas affiliation are in FBI and NCTC systems (watch-lists), raising the obvious question: How could this happen?

Hamas, by the way, is a terrorist organization, created out of the Palestinian Muslim Brotherhood.

FBI officials at FBIHQ and the Chicago Field Office called the allegations that Mustapha was even present at NCTC “fabricated” despite a photograph of him taken with the NCTC logo in the background. Numerous calls to the FBI by citizens and reporters last week revealed the FBI was scrambling to get their story straight. By the end of Wednesday, the FBI’s press office in Chicago was not only admitting the veracity of the report, it was defending Kifah Mustapha as an upstanding citizen with whom they worked closely.

The FBI confirmed Mustapha attended the Citizen’s Academy and was given access to numerous government facilities that included FBIHQ, NCTC, and the FBI Training Academy in Quantico. The media representative at the FBI Chicago office vigorously defended supporting Mustapha by saying he had never been convicted of a crime, thus he warrants access to sensitive government spaces. Former chief for counterterrorism investigations at the New York U.S. Attorney’s Office wrote on this incident, as did Bill Gertz of the Washington Times.

Hamas loving Galloway to sue Canada regarding his love for Hamas

Did I mention this ex-law maker loves Hamas and dead Jewish children yet?

Galloway says he’ll sue Canada over Hamas label
Former British lawmaker George Galloway has vowed to sue the Canadian government over invasion of privacy.

Speaking Sunday at a Toronto church to several hundred supporters, Galloway claimed his privacy was violated last year after he was banned by Canada's pro-Israel government because officials in Ottawa alerted British newspapers in March 2009 that he would be denied entry because he supports the terrorist Palestinian organization Hamas.

Canada's Federal Court ruled last week that the approach was improper.

Branding Galloway a Hamas supporter because he once delivered an aid convoy and cash to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip was unfairly motivated by "antipathy to his political views," the court said, and showed "a flawed and overreaching interpretation of the standards under Canadian law for labeling someone as engaging in terrorism or being a member of a terrorist organization."

The court said Ottawa acted against Galloway despite a recommendation from Canada's spy agency that he did not constitute a threat.

Following a lengthy interview by immigration officials over the weekend, Galloway was permitted to enter Canada.

At the Toronto church, Galloway repeated his oft-aired views that Jerusalem is being "ethnically cleansed" of Christian Arabs and Muslims, and that Palestinians see their former homes being "enjoyed by foreigners."

Canada, he said, is now seen as "no more than an embassy for [Israeli Prime Minister] Benjamin Netanyahu," and "a trumpet for the most extreme Israeli politicians."

Galloway also called for a one-state solution to the Israel-Palestinian problem.

Another harsh critic of Israel, Norman Finkelstein, is planning several cross-country speaking engagements in Canada later this month.

Update, at EoZ: Yes, Galloway's money went to Hamas terrorists

Norway helped terrorists escape Israeli jail in Lebanon at 1992

Despicable smelly herring eaters.

(image from here)
UN helped Lebanese prisoners slip Israeli custody
Norwegian paper 'Aftenposten' claims 1992 rescue operation could have jeopardized Norway's role in UN if had been discovered at time.

Norwegian newspaper Aftenposten published a report on Monday claiming that Norwegian UN soldiers helped to rescue two Lebanese prisoners who escaped from the Khiam prison in southern Lebanon in 1992.

The Aftenposten report claimed that the prison was Mossad-controlled.

The rescue operation could have jeopardized Norway's role in the UN if it had been discovered at the time, the report suggested.

According to the Norwegian report, author Odd Karsten Tveit describes the rescue operation of the two prisoners in his new book and says that it all happened in the deepest of secrecy.

The prisoners, who found themselves in Norwegian custody in southern Lebanon, could have been taken prisoner, tortured and possibly killed, the Aftenposten report claimed.

The report described how the rescue operation was carried out, claiming that the Lebanese prisoners dressed up in the Norwegian uniform jackets and UN helmets.

During the operation the prisoners were placed in a Norwegian armored vehicles which raced past Israeli soldiers and Lebanese militiamen who were searching for the men, Aftenposten put forward in its report.

Despite the sensitivity of the issue, the report suggests that UNIFIL, the UN force in Lebanon, was not informed of the operation.

In other words, Norway at 1992 has acted against the UN and Israel in support of Islamist terrorists.

Israel convicts 2 soldiers following Goldstone report

They ordered an Arab boy to open a few bags suspected of carrying bombs, while high command orders were not to use civilian population or children in any way which might harm them. These soldiers are not 'victims of Goldstone' - they behaved wrongfully at a time of war and will pay the price.

It's a good advice not to muddle criticism of the 'Goldstone report' with justice done where due. Goldstone report was a false indictment against the legitimacy of any military operation carried by Israel, built upon piles of false evidence, while disregarding the plight of Jewish Israeli population under a siege of rockets and terror attacks.

This case only proves Israel's commitment to high moral standards or as it's called in Israel: purity of the gun (tohar haneshek). Israel does not, has not and forever will not seek to do one tenth of the evils its enemies perpetrate. The world bodies continue to let these evils go without a bit of criticism.

Two soldiers convicted of overstepping authority
Givati infantrymen found guilty of overstepping authority by ordering Palestinian boy to open suspicious bag during Operation Cast Lead.

Two Givati Brigade infantrymen on Sunday were convicted of overstepping authority to the point of endangering human life and inappropriate behavior during Operation Cast Lead in 2009.

The Sourthern Command Military Prosecutor’s Office decided that the soldiers acted inappropriately when they ordered a Palestinian boy to open bags suspected of containing bombs during the Gaza operation last year.

Limbuagh on Family Guy, WTF?! UPDATE: Rush responds to critics

I've given up on this show long ago. I didn't appreciate any anti-semitic undertone, even if it's excused by 'we skewer everyone'. Seems like Rush is giving Seth some new credibility platform by being a guest on the show.

Rush's response to critics: It's cross over, Seth doesn't hate me - one of the first in Hollywood to reach out to me after heart scare.

Thoughts of collapsed peace talks and proposed 2 months freeze extention

A few one liners:

* Why 2 months? Trying to avoid showing Obama's nature towards Israel until after mid-term election?

* All this talk about freeze, no action or attempt to stop boycotts campaigns and incitement to hate at PA.

* Now that Rahm leaves, Obama can no longer use his 'Jewish aid with middle name Israel' as a bridge to reassure his supposed support for Israel. Expect the Wright to pop out of Obama.

* Now that there aren't any peace talks, there seems to be less attempts to murder Jews by Arabs. Hmmmm....

Power Line opines that the failed talks and refusal to accept 2 months extension has everything to do with Obama's lost credibility after he reneged on Bush's commitments to Israel in exchange for Gaza pull-out:
Obama's pathetic offer to Israel, Part Two
Last night, I wrote about President Obama's desperate attempt to induce Israel to extend by just two more months its building moratorium. Based on the information available to me then, I said that, in exchange for this short extension, Obama offered Israel the following assurances: (1) that Washington will not ask for a moratorium extension beyond 60 days, (2) that the United States will veto any U.N. Security Council initiative -- Arab or otherwise -- relating to Arab-Israeli peace during the agreed one-year negotiating period, and (3) that Washington will accept the legitimacy of existing Israeli security needs and not seek to redefine them.

I argued that assurances (1) and (2) didn't amount to much and that assurance (3) amounts to something only because Obama views Israel's security needs as negotiable. That view shows that he is is not a legitimate intermediary.

It has since been reported that Washington offered Israel additional incentives to extend the moratorium. They include support for Israel's demand that any Israeli-Palestinian deal include a long-term Israeli presence in the Jordan Valley; additional military aid and advanced weaponry; and stringent measures to halt arms smuggling.

These are genuine goodies and, in the abstract, seemingly are worth a two month extension. But as Evelyn Gordon points out, Obama's past actions show that he "views presidential promises to Israel as made to be broken." When Israel left Gaza, it received an oral promise from President Bush that the U.S. would not oppose continued building in the settlement blocs. But when Obama took office, he denied the oral pledge's existence. He has also failed to take seriously some of the written promises Bush made, such as demanding an end to PA incitement.

As to the latest "assurances," Israel might well believe that, because peace talks are destined to go nowhere, Obama's promises about what a peace deal must include are meaningless. And Israel is well advised to believe that, when the talks fail to progress, Obama will feel no compunction about reneging on his promises with respect to advanced weapons sales, measures to halt arms smuggling, etc.

Obama's chickens seem to be coming home to roost.

Thus, it is quite sensible for Israel to reject Obama's desperate offer and undertake much needed construction without further delay.
