Visiting Israel

I won't be blogging much this week.

Quick notes:
* Pundits here say Obama stabbed Mubarak in the back
* Just saw a good segment on Chanel 2 news which gave specifics as to which facebook pages started the Egyptian revolution.

Blogging from touch pc (iPad like device) is just impossible. I'll be back next week.

And the wave continues in Jordan

Under-reported thus far...

Jordan's opposition: Arabs will topple tyrants
The leader of Jordan's powerful Muslim Brotherhood warned Saturday that unrest in Egypt will spread across the Mideast and Arabs will topple leaders allied with the United States.

Hammam Saeed's comments were made at a protest outside the Egyptian Embassy in Amman, inspired by massive rallies in neighboring Egypt demanding the downfall of the country's longtime president, Hosni Mubarak. About 100 members of the fundamentalist group and activists from other leftist organizations and trade unions chanted "Mubarak, step down" and "the decision is made, the people's revolt will remain."

100 Members? Somehow I suspect there are enough demonstrations which are not reported... 100?! It's either really nothing, or just the bit that is allowed to be reported.

Egypt, what's at stake?

Just a short bullet list...

* International commerce through Suez canal
* Peace with Israel
* Oil and gas production exports
* Muslim Brotherhood rising (Islamo-Nazis)
* Fight against Al-Quaeda
* American made arms at the hand of its enemies
* American military presence along Red Sea
* Every western friendly Arab government falling
* Iranian cross Shiite-Sunni fraction domination
* Stability of the entire Middle East
* Africa - further destabilization
* World peace

Another thought, some have questioned what is motivating the rioters and whether the west should support them in their attempt to accomplish a revolution. To which, even if most of them are only motivated by social reasons, and are uninterested in religious fanaticism, the fall of the regime would leave a void - which the radicals are all too prepared to fill. This is precisely what happened in Iran, the radicals were a certain percentage of the civilian revolution. The Communists thought they would take the reigns, we all know how that ended.

Tanks in Cairo?

Update, tank photo...

WSJ is reporting that the military is deploying in Cairo, didn't find the word tank there - however it was used by hotair's account of events.

It's interesting to observe the inner struggle of right-wing thinkers in the USA at these times. On one hand, they want to be supportive of human rights and democracy, on the other - it's easy to see where this road is leading in Egypt.

Viral vid: "Muslims are boring!" - it's like, uh, whatever, uh...

This one, is going to be a classic.

She's not boring, she's a phenomena. She should get her own Comedy Central show.

More at the Blaze.

"Rabbis" playing ugly Holocaust politics in WSJ ad

See-through smear merchants.

* Rabbis Spend $100K to Slam Beck for Slamming Soros

Foxnews replied: Stuff it!

Spooky dude continues pulling his marionette strings.

A reminder to friends of Israel, spooky dude is engaged in extreme anti-Israel activities:
* The Soros Connection: Leading the Goldstone Lobby

* Sorus - a friend of Hamas

It's worth mentioning that Israel in general enjoys support from both the left as well as the right wing in this country. It is the extremes that are hateful, and Sorus is playing certain Jewish groups for his extreme agenda.

Obama's Carter Moment: The Fall Of Egypt

Nothing will seal Obama's presidency as a disaster comparable only to Carter's than the collapse of Egypt's regime and rise of yet another Islamic theocracy where once was a western ally. This is precisely what Carter pushed for in Iran where he has brought misery for generations to come, and this is precisely what is happening in Egypt and might roll on in the rest of the Arab world.

This is a human catastrophe in action. If Mubarak will fall, it will not be a new age of freedom and civil rights, it will be a rise of the first Muslim Brotherhood major state. It will be the first shot of world war III; state global Jihadism.

El-Baradei to return to Egypt as riots continue
Prominent reformist expected to arrive Thursday to support demonstrations against Mubarak's regime. 'There is no choice,' he says; 40 protestors charged with trying to 'overthrow the regime'

El-Bardai is an impotent stooge, the rioters are not his supporters. If he tries to take the reigns, he will soon be replaced. Egypt will fall if the riots won't cease.

Hezbollah's takeover of Lebanon - an advantage for Israel?

I strongly disagree with the conclusion, but on the whole - a thorough analysis.

Analysis: Sectarian rage there, heightened clarity here(jpost)
Prospect of Hizbullah-controlled government angers Lebanese Sunnis, but brings Islamists out in the open for Israel.


The emerging situation looks set to have the virtue, by contrast, of clarity. This would raise the possibility of the next clash between Israel and Hizbullah taking on the unfamiliar dimensions of a stateto- state conflict.

The conclusion is based on an assumption that world bodies still need further proof of something. That truth and reality take a role in how Israel is judged.

Lebanon: A Soap Opera of Blood and Hate

Lebanese sources say PM appointment today is not one of unity, and the candidate is Hezbollah's plant. Hezbollan calls it Israeli propaganda.

Spreading the brotherly love: (From Ya-Libnan)

Hmmm... light blue flags?

Rumble, rumble - before the tumble.

Quick comment about Pali-Leaks

Updated with relevant video - see end of this post why...

Something stinks here. Both the motives of those who published or leaked them, as well as the content that is reported. If Abbas had agreed to Jewish sovereignty in 'Eastern' Jerusalem, and forfeit the claim to 'right of return' - then what exactly stopped both sides from signing a deal? And if any of it is true, then why exactly do they REFUSE TO TALK TO ISRAEL for about two years now.

Who exactly gains from these publications? Only those who wish to portray Fatah leadership as those who already signed a surrender treaty with Israel. I wonder how much of it is true (probably about 70%), and how much was written by Ahmedinajad's nephew in his dark Persian basement.

After I put in my speculation, a development: Today a top Fatah negotiator says - it's real, yet out of context.

PA official: Leaked memos authentic

Nabil Shaath, former member of Palestinian negotiations team, admits documents published by al-Jazeera are real. Former Fatah strongman Dahlan points finger at Israel


The Palestinian Authority has launched an intensive investigation into the leak. According to estimates, the documents were leaked from the office of chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat, who said he was willing to be questioned himself.

"I am not above the law and I will have all my staff members questioned in order to discover whether the leak came from my office," he said.

The Palestinian official accused the al-Jazeera network of intentionally distorting the documents and taking them out of context. He added that the Qatari network "encourages the Palestinians to launch a revolt against the Palestinian Authority in order to bring down the political Palestinian government."

BBC doesn't miss a chance to show it's hateful bias against Israel

Disgraceful haters.

BBC's "whitewash"

Compare to normal coverage at Fox News:Israeli inquiry: Flotilla interception was legal

I'll quote the later paragraphs from Fox News, echoing my hunch from prior post:
Alan Baker, former legal adviser to Israel's Foreign Ministry, said the report will likely be accepted and rejected by countries based on their prior feelings toward Israel.

He said the committee's makeup should boost its credibility among Israel's allies. He also expected the U.N.'s commission to take it seriously.

"Whether this will persuade Turkey is doubtful. Whether this will persuade the Arab countries is very doubtful. I think the serious countries will take it very seriously because of the people who were involved and because of the international observers," he said.

"I doubt very much whether it will make an impression on those elements of the international community who are pushing the anti-Israel hostility," he added.

Elements, such as BBC news.

China used stolen US jet technology from crashed F-117 in Serbia?

It is a known fact that Chinese hackers stole technology using the internet - it seems they might have had some hands on experience as well:

China's new stealth fighter may use US technology
Chinese officials recently unveiled a new, high-tech stealth fighter that could pose a significant threat to American air superiority — and some of its technology, it turns out, may well have come from the U.S. itself.

Balkan military officials and other experts have told The Associated Press that in all probability the Chinese gleaned some of their technological know-how from an American F-117 Nighthawk that was shot down over Serbia in 1999.

Israeli civilian committee publishes Mavi Marmara raid report: Justified!

Committee headed by civilian judge and observed by 2 internationals, Brig. Gen. Ken Watkin of Canada and Lord David Trimble of Northern Ireland, published a 300 page report including testimonies from soldiers and people on board. I wouldn't expect the truth to matter to international entities...

Turkish terrorists on high seas

Israeli inquiry: Flotilla raid was legal
Turkel Commission says deadly May 31 commando takeover of Turkish 'aid' vessel was 'legal pursuant to rules of international law,' soldiers opened fire in self-defense. On blockade: Israel not trying to starve Gazans

Testimonies from surviving soldiers who were lynched is reported in Hebrew here, auto translated by google:

They pushed fingers into my eyeballs trying to tear them out

Terror supporting MK Zoabi who was on board of course condemned the committee.

Her presence and participation on the ship was previously exposed .

Interesting how she now defines irrefutable video proof as lies. She was present when the arms were readied. She saw the lynch. She's A-OK with murdering Israeli soldiers.

French FM gets a taste of infamous Gazan hospitality

It's OK, Israel's government Arab speaking radio is blamed.

Israel's peacenik left falling to tiny-miniature pieces

The fall-out of false promises and delusional policies. Had the far left portions of the Labor party weren't so eager to be the right wing of Meretz, perhaps their party wouldn't get shattered like this.

1984 alert:Time Magazine acts as Big Brother's agent, rewriting recent history

Time Magazine is a useless propaganda rag.

Discussing Time Magazine's article: top 10 clashes at sea.
Moonbattery blog comments:
Time Magazine Passes Off Pro-Terrorist Freedom Flotilla Stunt as Historic Naval Battle
According to the moonbats rewriting history for Time magazine, the sinking of the Lusitania, which brought the USA into World War I, does not qualify as one of the all-time top 10 clashes at sea. Neither does the sinking of the Bismarck, which was key to establishing Allied naval superiority in World War II. What does make the list is a publicity stunt by a pathetic collection of pro-terrorist moonbats calling themselves the "Freedom Flotilla."

To give an idea of the level of progressive self-parody involved in the Freedom Flotilla, one of the ships was named after the martyred moonbat Rachel Corrie, who became Saint Pancake by standing in the way of an Israeli bulldozer whose driver had no way of seeing her as she agitated on behalf of Palestinian terrorists. So disreputable was the Freedom Flotilla, it even had links to Feisal Abdul Rauf, the jihadist imam behind the Ground Zero Mosque blasphemy. Obama's communist terrorist friends Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn were also involved, as was top Obama bundler Jodie Evans of Code Pink.

While violating a weapons blockade of the Gaza Strip, the maritime moonbats managed to goad Israeli security forces into killing nine of them. To call this one of the 10 greatest sea battles of all time is as absurd as the Flotsam Flotilla itself. Yet Time lists this at the very top, before Midway, before Trafalgar, before the defeat of the Spanish Armada. With the "mainstream" media, pushing a juvenile left-wing agenda always comes first.

Chief of Israeli space agency speaks: Retaliation to Iranian attack on Israel will end in death of 40 million Iranians

Way to make us all feel reassured, openly exclaim that a nuclear holocaust is just around the corner. He wanted to make the point that Iran wouldn't dare, and we should feel safe for 10 years - but in fact he raised tensions in the Middle East to cold war status.

Itzhak Ben Israel, grabbing some headlines.

Article in Hebrew: here, auto translated by google: here

Open Antisemitism and Violent Attacks Lead More Jews Fleeing Belgium

The new Europe, as hostile and racist as the old Europe.

Belgian Anti-Semitism Leads to More Aliyah
According to figures released by the Jewish Agency and published this past week on the website, in 2010 there was an increase of 63 percent in the number of Belgian Jews who made aliyah to Israel. Two hundred and fifty Belgian Jews chose to make Israel their home in 2010, compared to 152 in 2009.

The report cites increasingly open anti-Semitism in recent years and the rise of violent attacks against members of the community, especially its highly-visible hareidi religious members, as causes for the sharp rise in the numbers of individuals making aliyah.

There are 40,000 Jews in Belgium today, about half of whom are members of the Jewish community of Antwerp, which is famous for its involvement in making the city a leading global center of the diamond trade, but at the same time has increasingly been under threat in recent years. brought figures published by Belgian organization, The Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism, which issued in 2009 a report indicating a surge in anti-Semitism in the country. Between 2004 and 2008, the Centre recorded some 60 anti-Semitic incidents each year. The same number of incidents was recorded in the first four months of 2009 alone.

Anti-Semitic incidents have been on the rise not just in Belgium, but throughout Europe. In fact, just six months ago, European Jewish Congress President Moshe Kantor said that European Jewry is in its worst condition since the end of World War II.

“Jews are afraid to walk the streets in Europe with Jewish symbols,” Kantor said. “Synagogues, Jewish schools and kindergartens require barbed-wire fences and security, and Jewish men, women and children are beaten up in broad daylight.”

I didn't like this story when first heard of it, it now ends with an apology. Security workers can over-reach... It can happen in an airport close to you, it can happen entering a meeting with Israeli PM.

First, the story of the incident:'Shin Bet said everyone removes bra' (ynet)

Followed by an apology:
GPO apologizes for 'bra-gate'; vows better press ties(jpost)
The Government Press Office issued an official apology on Thursday, the day after the Israeli and international media was flooded with reports that a pregnant journalist from Al-Jazeera left a reception with Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu, when the PM's Shin Bet security detail insisted she remove her bra.

Al-Jazeera filed a complaint with the GPO and the Foreign Press Association (FPA) following the incident, which took place before an annual banquet the GPO holds for the foreign press in Israel. For their part, the FPA issued a statement expressing their "outrage" at what happened Tuesday night, and vowed not to take part in future PMO events without assurances that such incidents don’t happen in the future.

GPO Director Oren Helman's letter to the foreign press said "respected members of the foreign press, "first of all, I would like to express my regret that journalists left the GPO Annual Cocktail Reception feeling that they were treated in an unbecoming manner by security. Obviously, we do not invite journalists to an event in order to offend them." Helman told foreign journalists in Israel "you are not only our clients, but you are our preferred clients. We will be receptive to your professional needs, and we will try to assist you as much as possible. My door is always open to you." The new GPO head also vowed to file an inquiry with the Shin Bet, who was responsible for the security screenings at Tuesday's event.

Lame ADL offended by Palin usage of 'blood libel'

I'd say the statement starts well, then weasels itself into idiocy. If accusing someone falsely of responsibility of murder is not blood-libel - what is? Why claim exclusivity for the term? That's ridiculous.

ADL Statement on Sarah Palin's Response to Tucson Tragedy
It is unfortunate that the tragedy in Tucson continues to stimulate a political blame game. Rather than step back and reflect on the lessons to be learned from this tragedy, both parties have reverted to political partisanship and finger-pointing at a time when the American people are looking for leadership, not more vitriol. In response to this tragedy we need to rise above partisanship, incivility, heated rhetoric, and the business-as-usual approaches that are corroding our political system and tainting the atmosphere in Washington and across the country.

It was inappropriate at the outset to blame Sarah Palin and others for causing this tragedy or for being an accessory to murder. Palin has every right to defend herself against these kinds of attacks, and we agree with her that the best tradition in America is one of finding common ground despite our differences.

Still, we wish that Palin had not invoked the phrase “blood-libel” in reference to the actions of journalists and pundits in placing blame for the shooting in Tucson on others. While the term “blood-libel” has become part of the English parlance to refer to someone being falsely accused, we wish that Palin had used another phrase, instead of one so fraught with pain in Jewish history.

Horror footage from "world's largest concentration camp" (tm)

The Arabs have managed to push through the slogan that "Gaza is the world's largest concentration camp". It's their trademark. They had many loony lefty visitors echo this statement. It finally stuck with more prominent voices. Truth has become an abstract concept.

A few examples:
* Blair sister-in-law: Gaza world’s largest concentration camp (ynet)

* We believe that Hamas should be included in all the major efforts to peace ... It is part of the Palestinian people," Carter said. He added that "1.5 million Palestinians are held in a cage or prison while their human rights are taken away." (vicious-babushka)

* British PM Cameron: Gaza must not remain a prison camp (haaretz)

* Vatican says Gaza "resembles a concentration camp" (bbc)

* Ron Paul: Gaza is a Concentration Camp, Israel is Starving Palestinians (lgf)

Someone made the following video, the tourism promotion is sarcasm of course - but the footage is real. The only reason life would be harsh in Gaza is because of whomever is in charge there.

EU, US Condemn Israel for... allowing Jews to purchase former home of Hitler's friend in Jerusalem and demolishing it

The punchline, given by EU leadership: 'Ashton described the compound as a Palestinian symbol.'

Quite a symbol indeed!

Read on:
* Former Home of Pro-Nazi Mufti Makes Way for Jewish Building

* US Secretary of State Clinton says demolition of Shepherd Hotel in favor of Jewish housing units 'undermines peace efforts to achieve the two-state solution'. Earlier Sunday, European Union, British Foreign Office also condemned construction in east Jerusalem

* The Muslim Hitler, Haj Amin al-Husseini, Was Promised Leadership of Israel [Palestine] After Annihilation of the Jews

More of this lovely symbol: here

The international leadership is morally bankrupt. Jews have a right to purchase land and do whatever they feel like with it, private land - purchased from private individuals. International leadership is expressing pure racism.

The Tragedy of the American Experiment in Creating A Democratic Palestinian State

The following op-ed came with a different headline, I simply chose to put a bit of emphasis on who's to blame - and whom should already have learned a lesson or two.

The Tragedy of Palestinian Democracy
By Rick Richman at
Today is the second anniversary of the end of Mahmoud Abbas’s four-year term as president of the Palestinian Authority. He continues to play the role of “president” but is simply an unelected holdover, lacking the legitimacy to make the compromises necessary to produce a Palestinian state, even assuming he were willing to make them. It may be an appropriate day to reflect on the results of Palestinian democracy.

Abbas ran essentially unopposed in 2005, in an election held less than seven weeks after Yasir Arafat’s death. Hamas boycotted the election and Abbas’s principal Fatah opponent was unavailable, serving five life sentences in an Israeli prison. The seven-week electoral process merely put someone quickly in office whom the U.S. hoped would implement Phase I of the Roadmap by dismantling the terrorist groups and infrastructure — particularly since Israel had announced it would remove 21 settlements from Gaza and four from the West Bank.

Condoleezza Rice said in 2005 that she raised the dismantlement obligation in every conversation with Abbas but understood his need to do it at the right time: “You don’t want him to go to dismantle Hamas and fail.” He assured her he would convince Hamas there should be only “one gun,” and she intimated that he told her privately he would dismantle Hamas with force if necessary. But it did not happen. In September 2005, a settlementrein Gaza was handed over to the Palestinian Authority and was transformed into Hamastan virtually from day one; four months later, elections were held for the Palestinian legislature, and the Palestinians elected Hamas, which later took over Gaza in a coup.

These days, an unelected West Bank “prime minister” is busy “building the institutions of a state.” He expects to be done by August. But the institutions do not include elections, which were canceled in July even for local councils on the West Bank. His principal activity consists of spending international aid for its intended purpose (contrary to what used to happen); he is essentially an official appointed by the international community to watch over the use of their funds, and is continually praised for his “transparency” — the basic job requirement for someone in that role. But an appointed person with no political party or electoral base, assigned to distribute funds, is hardly a “prime minister.”

We are not likely to see Palestinian elections in the foreseeable future: Hamas lacks a tradition honoring the peaceful transfer of power, and Fatah does not like elections held before their outcome is fixed. A month ago, the Palestinian “High Court” ruled that the cancellation of the West Bank elections was illegal, and the vast majority of Palestinians want them held. But the court lacks the power to enforce its decision, and the “prime minister” has not yet responded to the letter sent to him about holding elections in light of it. A recent poll found that Palestinians view both Gaza and the West Bank as an increasingly police state. The “institutions of a state” the prime minister is building do not include an empowered judiciary or a free electorate.

When the U.S. endorsed a Palestinian state in 2002, the endorsement was conditional: it depended on the Palestinians first building “a practicing democracy.” Nine years later, half the putative state is a terrorist enclave functioning as an Iranian proxy; the other half is a Potemkin democracy unable even to stage elections. The tragedy of Palestinian democracy is that the obstacle to a Palestinian state turned out to be the Palestinians themselves.

Experiments in Iraq and Israel have failed, stop trying. In fact it has failed before with pressure on Iran's Shah to provide more liberties to his revolutionary foes. Thank Carter for that. More recently, reforms in Turkey encouraged by EU for the false promise of joining the EU, have lead to weakening of the secular military, guardian of the secular constitution, and rise of pro-Iranian Islamist regime.

Hamas bombards civilian Israeli truck driver

The dumbest tiny kid on the block begging the big kids to teach him a lesson. Smack-down of Jihadis approaching, rest assured.

Trucker Hit by Shrapnel, IDF Reassures Southerners
A trucker suffered mild shrapnel wounds in a Kassam attack launched by Gaza terrorists Saturday night. The short-range rocket exploded close to the trucker's vehicle in the Eshkol Regional Council district of the Gaza Belt.

In other news, leader of Gaza's Hamassholes said the following: The Holocaust Is A Zionist Lie

Is there a monkey gene active with these Jihadis or is he a close relative of major Monkey-Boy Ahmedinajad?

Loons on Salon.Com blame Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, Rush for nut-job Jarod Loughner murder spree

Follow this link:

Search for the words Glenn Beck, you'd find despicable things, including this:
This is what happens when you incite rightwingers for profit.

Sarah Palin et al., all have Congresswoman Giffords' blood on their hands. You CANNOT make irresponsible statements like "don't retreat, reload" or "I've got those liberals in my crosshairs" and then try to shed responsibility when something like this happens. SOMEONE is going to take this inflammatory rhetoric to heart, as we've already seen with the crazy Glenn Beck follower planning to murder over Beck's heated rhetoric about the Tides Foundation.

These rightwing "news" personalities must be held accountable. They may express horror and grief over this just as we in Arizona are, but we have no choice but to think this is the outcome they secretly wanted when they throw out their irresponsible, inciteful comments about "second amendment remedies" with prideful ignorance.

Expect more prominent lefty moonbats to echo same non-sense. I bet that right wing 'Communist Manifesto' has set him off... sure.

Timothy McVeigh joined by new Arizona Nut Job: JAROD LOUGHNER – Likes Watching US Flags Burn, Favorite Book is Communist Manifesto

I hate writing this post but I feel I can't avoid it. This IS the 'Oklohama type incident' the radicals have been waiting for. The 'don't let a crisis go to waste' approach of some people is scary.

This will be used to justify the infamous 'veterans are potential terrorists' memo from DHS from two years ago. It gives ammo to those who want to stifle discussion of Muslim terrorism by pointing out to a 'non Muslim white guy'.

Which is why I put the headline 'Timothy McVeigh joined by new Arizona Nut Job'.

A nut job however, is not a conspiracy, is not a religious group which justifies these things. A nut-job - is a nut-job, whilst a Jihadi is not crazy, rather assumed crazy by those refusing to listen to him and his supporters.

The news from today:
AZ SHOOTER: JAROD LOUGHNER – He Likes Watching US Flags Burn & Favorite Book is Communist Manifesto (Gateway Pundit)

Federal judge among victims in Arizona shooting (WaPo)

Arizona congresswoman among 18 shot at Tucson grocery (cnn)
Six people were killed and 12 others wounded -- including U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords -- in a shooting outside a Tucson, Arizona, grocery store where the congresswoman was holding a constituent meeting, police said.

The suspect in the Saturday morning shooting was in custody, according to U.S. Capitol Police, who did not identify the alleged gunman. A law enforcement source said he was a white male who is 22 or 23 years old.

Police have also recovered a handgun, according to senior law enforcement sources.

Dr. Peter Rhee of University Medical Center in Tucson, said Giffords, 40, had undergone surgery for a single gunshot to the head that passed through her brain. Giffords was among five patients listed in critical condition, Rhee said.

A 9-year-old girl was among the dead, Rhee said.The child, whose identity had not been released, was pronounced dead at the hospital.

A federal judge, identified as Chief Judge John Roll by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, also was injured in the attack.

Odd stuff: Egyptian readers converse at Israel's YNet news site

At the following article:
New Israeli military technology speeds up warfare
Sophisticated communication system that compiles battlefield information in video game-like map interface designed to knock down military's response time

Which serves nothing but PR for Elbit, the following comments were found:
3. guys Egypt give you gas

we give israel gas with low price so u should give us this technology we can share every thing ..

ahmed abd elaziz , cairo / Egypt

11. to my egyptian brother Ahmed 3

you gave them cheap gas , let thier tourists enter Sainai freely , kill the Africans infiltrators to defend thier borders, besiege Gaza to appease them BUT they would never gave you thier advanced technology simply because your corrupt regime gives them everything for nothing just to stay in power under the blessing of its American and Israeli masters.but it is just a matter of time before this humiliation comes to an end and the Egyptians take thier independence back similar to what the iranians did in 1979 .

free egyptian , Egypt (01.08.11)

My immediate opinion usually dismisses comments as sock puppets and infantile imbeciles sending talk-backs which almost no one really reads. I just found the content of the comment to match mindsets of Arabs, be they from Egypt - or within Israel. It's nonsensical of course; Give us military technology because we trade gas, some blabber about Egyptian leaders and how Egypt needs to turn into an Islamic Nazi state like Iran. It only shows that these 'military' related articles at Israeli news sites are thoroughly read by Arabs from all across the middle east. We found here one naive guy completely misunderstanding relationship between Israel and Egypt, and another hard-line Islamist nut-job yearning for a strong-man Jihadi to rule Egypt. All visible at some article revealing some technology used by IDF.

Gaza's Hamas Moderates Bombard Thai Workers At Israeli Kibutz

Quick, pressure Israel to make more one sided concessions for peace, it's just around the corner... just as soon as Israel commits suicide.

4 mortar shells land in Sha'ar Hanegev area, 3 injured
Four mortar shells fired by Palestinian terrorists in Gaza landed in a kibbutz in the Sha'ar Hanegev Regional Council, injuring three foreign agricultural workers on Saturday - one of them seriously.

One shell struck a building housing the workers, who were employed by the kibbutz. One man is in serious condition and has been taken for surgery with shrapnel wounds to his chest.

Two others were moderately and lightly injured by shrapnel, the Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva, which treated the injured, said.

A number of people suffered shock as a result of the attack and were treated on the scene by paramedics.

Police in the Negev said a total of four mortar shells with a diameter of 181 millimeters were fired at the western Negev on Saturday afternoon.

Towards the evening, an additional mortar shell fired from Gaza landed in an open area in the Eshkol Regional Council. No injuries or damages were reported.

On Friday, one IDF soldier was killed and four injured, apparently from friendly fire, when their patrol was ambushed by terrorists along the central Gaza border fence. A number of mortars were also fired into Israel by Palestinians throughout the day.

On Thursday, two Palestinians were shot and killed by the IDF while attempting to penetrate the border fence and enter Israeli territory.

Daily terrorist activities. The reward Israelis get for uprooting Jewish communities in Gaza so that Arabs could achieve the lefty orgasmic notion of statehood.

Peaceful Abbas releases convicted murderous terrorists

Now ask the lefties why they keep pressuring Israel to do more for peace while Arabs do the opposite.

Abbas Releases Terrorist, 4 Months After Quadruple Murder

In other news, 11 rockets have been launched at Israel from Gaza since within the year's first week. 63% of Turks hate Israel now and the USA isn't sure the IHH is a terror group.

It's a new year - let's hope a good year.

Feeling safe now? Man without legs getting pat down, forced to stand at airport

Just prior to this Orwellian sight, I saw a mom with 3 little girls under age of 7, all forced through X-Ray machine, and then getting a pat-down.

All happened on December 26th 2010 at Detroit airport, as I was traveling for a week in Hong Kong.
