For Second Time, Rockets Found At UN School In Gaza

 

 

 

Hamas Rockets UN School

 

 

” For the second time in less than a week, rockets have been found in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the body said.

“Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip,” the organization said in a statement issued Tuesday. “As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.

As it did the last time around when missiles were found in a school it operates, UNRWA said it “strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.” “

” IDF forces recently identified two Palestinian terrorists using an ambulance to travel within Gaza. On a daily basis, Hamas uses ambulances, houses and other civilian infrastructure to protect its terrorists.

Donkey Suicide Bomb Stopped By Israeli Troops In Gaza

 

 

 

 

” Hamas militants sent a donkey laden with explosives on a suicide mission in one of the most unconventional tactics yet seen in the fighting in Gaza, the Israeli army has said.

  Troops said they were forced to open fire on the animal – blowing it up – as it approached their position in the southern city of Rafah, near the Egyptian border.

  The Israeli army had received prior intelligence that militants were going to try to use animals to carry out attacks, according to a press release on the Israeli Defence Forces website.

  Israeli military officials say Friday night’s incident was a variant of what they say is Hamas’ tactic of using “human shields” to carry out “terrorist” activity.

” They used this donkey as a human shield, or an animal shield, if you like,” said Major Arye Shalicar, an army spokesman. “Anything, an animal or an international building, that can help make use of innocent people or international [citizens], they will use it. We see it time and again.” “

20 Missiles Found In UN-Run School In Gaza

 

 

 

” Some 20 rockets were found Wednesday in a school in Gaza operated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, the organization confirmed Thursday.

  The weapons were found in “the course of the regular inspection of its premises,” UNRWA said in a statement, adding that the school was vacant.

“UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations. This is a flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law,” the statement read.

  The discovery would seem to confirm Israel’s oft-repeated claim that Hamas and other Gazan terror groups use civilian infrastructure to hide weapons.”

 

 

As if any confirmation were needed to know the terrorist Palestinians hide behind women and children …

” Footage in an unverified YouTube video published on Saturday shows a blast in a vehicle traveling on a road in a coastal region.

  According to Palestinian radio station Bian, the video depicts an Israeli strike targeting Popular Resistance Committees members Usama Hasumi and Muhammad Fasiah.

  On Friday, the IDF named the two as casualties in an IAF strike carried out in northern Gaza.

  The military said Hasumi and Fasiah were involved in rocket attacks on Israel in recent weeks and had been planning more attacks on Israeli citizens. “

Presbyterians Vote To Divest In Protest Against Israel

 

 

 

 

” The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) on Friday became the most prominent religious group in the United States to endorse divestment as a protest against Israeli policies toward Palestinians, voting to sell church stock in three companies whose products Israel uses in the occupied territories.

  The General Assembly voted by a razor-thin margin — 310-303 — to sell stock in Caterpillar, Hewlett-Packard, and Motorola Solutions. Two years ago, the General Assembly rejected a similar divestment proposal by two votes.

  The American Jewish Committee, a policy and advocacy group based in New York, said the vote was “driven by hatred of Israel.” But Heath Rada, moderator for the church meeting, said immediately after the vote that “in no way is this a reflection of our lack of love for our Jewish brothers and sisters.”

  The decision is expected to reverberate beyond the 1.8 million-member church. It comes amid discouragement over failed peace talks that have left activists desperate for some way to affect change and as the broader movement known as BDS — or boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel — has gained some momentum in the U.S., Israel’s closest and most important ally.

  Presbyterians who advocated for divestment insisted their action was not part of the broader boycott movement. Israeli officials, along with many American Jewish groups, denounced the campaign as an attempt to delegitimize the Jewish state. Separately, the assembly also voted to re-examine its support for a two-state solution.

  In a statement on its Facebook page, the Israeli Embassy in Washington denounced the resolution as “shameful.” “

 

 

     As if the Church doesn’t have enough problems with declining membership , now it chooses to slit it own throat in the name of , “tolerance” … Jesus H Ch***t .

  The Presbyterian church lost me years ago , when I resigned my Eldership as the result of our Pastor , in a board meeting proposing a church trip to boycott Walmart for selling a legal product (guns & ammo) and in the same motion deciding that the church building should be made available for use by the illegal alien community of our town … 

    Read the whole story of the PresbyterianUSA’s voluntary journey towards extinction here . As with most things involving faith , when you try to be all things to all people you instead end up being nothing to nobody . 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Ingenious Shock-Absorbing Wheel For Bikes And Wheelchairs

 

 

 

 

 

 

” When Israeli farmer Gilad Wolf broke his pelvis in 2008, he resolved not to lets his crops wither on the vine and became determined to turn his wheelchair into a workhorse. After suffering the pain that came from traversing the bumpy rows of his field in a stock chair he began developing new designs better suited to off-road applications. He experimented with solutions based on farm equipment and ultimately took his concepts to the Rad-BioMed Technology Accelerator in Tel Aviv where he got the help required to transform concept sketch into a patent-pending product called SoftWheel.

  In traditional wheelchair designs up to 30 percent of expended energy is lost because they lack suspension, leaving only 70-80 percent of the energy put into the chair for propulsion. This creates uncomfortable rides and fatigued drivers. “Most of the time, the user is driving a rigid wheel with no suspension and it breaks your back and shakes your filings loose,” says SoftWheel CEO Daniel Barel.”

Female Israeli Soldiers Punished For Posting Racy Pictures Online

” Every man’s dream: a group of hot women soldiers posing in lingerie.

  In Israel, that dream has become a reality. A group of female Israeli soldiers has been punished for posting pictures of themselves in underwear and combat gear on Facebook. And now more images from the same base are surfacing.”

female3-472x500

” The women were stations in southern Israel when they posted the racy pics. One photo showed the soldiers exposing their underwear and back sides. In another one, five women posed wearing only helmets and combat equipment. The faces of the women were blurred out in the pictures.”

” While the women were punished, some are outraged that they did not face harsher penalties — especially since the photos involve the use of weapons. In a statement, the military said the women had acted in a manner that demonstrated “unbecoming behavior” for soldiers. “The commanding officers disciplined the soldiers as they saw fitting.”

    Regular readers will be familiar with this case from our post back in June when the pictures went viral . For those in need of a refresher check the post out here . For more pictures and info on the disciplinary measures the troopers face go here .

New Moderate Iranian TV Airs Simulated Bombing Of Tel Aviv, US Aircraft Carrier

 

 

 

” If anything, since concluding their nuclear agreement with the U.S., the new moderate Iranians have only grown more bellicose. Clearly they think, as Hitler did after humiliating Neville Chamberlain at Munich, that their foes are weak, spineless, and anxious to appease them. Like Hitler after Munich, they are stepping up their saber-rattling, as well as their actual moves towards war. One wonders if there is a Winston Churchill on the horizon, ready to face them down at the eleventh hour. There certainly seems to be an inexhaustible supply of Neville Chamberlains.

“ Iranian TV airs simulated bombing of Tel Aviv, US aircraft carrier,” by Ilan Ben Zion for the Times of Israel, February 8 (thanks to Lookmann):

  Iranian state TV on Friday ran a documentary featuring a computerized video of Iran’s drones and missiles bombing Tel Aviv, Haifa, Ben Gurion Airport and the Dimona nuclear reactor in a hypothetical retaliation for an Israeli or American strike on the Islamic Republic.

  Iranian drones and missiles are also shown carrying out simulated strikes on the American aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, downing American aircraft and striking American military targets in the Persian Gulf.”

   This is the kind of result we can expect from Obama’s “smart diplomacy” … make concessions and encourage the animals . The triumph of the Obama/Kerry Iranian capitulation yields an implacable enemy emboldened to the point where they not only produce videos like this but send their navy to our shores .

     We are led by incompetents who’ve learned nothing from history . Winston Churchill said it best :

“An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last” 

 

 

    But then Sir Churchill was a “colonialist” and not someone worthy of respect . Not from a Kenyan’s point of view anyway . Read more at Jihadwatch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Israel Breaks Up Al Qaeda Plot To Bomb US Embassy

 

 

 

 

” While Obama and Kerry were pressuring Israel to free terrorists to keep the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority at the negotiations, Israel was breaking up a terrorist plot targeting the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

  Israel’s Shin Bet security agency revealed on Wednesday that it had arrested a terrorist unit that planned to blow up the Jerusalem convention center and the US embassy in Tel Aviv.

  According to the Shin Bet’s statement, the three terrorists who were arrested belong to a Gaza based terror group that is linked to al-Qaida and the attacks themselves were planned by the global terror group’s leader Ayman al-Zawahri. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Israeli Leftists Come For Peace Talks, Get Stoned By Muslims

 

 

 

” They came in peace. They left with stones. They came to meet ordinary Palestinian Muslims, and unfortunately for them, they found them.

  The gathering was to have marked the start of two days of meetings by a grassroots group bringing ordinary Israelis and Palestinians staging together for mock peace talks, organizers said.

  Israeli and Palestinian flags were set up in the hotel’s conference room

  Palestinians threw rocks Thursday at a West Bank hotel, shattering windows and the conference was cut short and three dozen Israeli participants were rushed out the back door, put on Palestinian police buses and driven to safety, organizers said.”

Congress In Revolt On Iran Deal

 

 

 

 

” With the blistering New York Times editorial condemning sanctions efforts underway in Congress (“a breakthrough agreement at risk” falsely implies there is a U.S. -Iran agreement on key points), you know the administration is nervous, very nervous. It seems bipartisan contingents in both the House and Senate are unwilling to be threatened by the totalitarian regime in Tehran, which has threatened to call off the whole deal (which isn’t even a deal) unless the Congress shuts up. It is quite extraordinary — both the Times and the mullahs vilifying Congress’s efforts merely to enforce the terms of U.N. resolutions on Iran’s illegal weapons program.

   This is not a partisan affair. Democrats and Republicans are both involved in efforts to stop Iran’s march toward a nuclear arms capability. Both sides are alarmed at a White House running toward appeasement.”

 

 

   Exhibiting a rare example of spine , Congress refuses to roll over for the appeasers in the White House . Good for them . Good for US.

Is Obama Planning The Destruction Of Israel?

 

 

” Two Kuwaiti newspapers are reporting that the White House has been holding negotiations with the Hezbollah terrorists, through Great Britain.  The US is forbidden from having direct contact with terrorists.  The talks have been going on for a year now, about the same length of time as talks with Iran.  So what would Obama want from Hezbollah and Iran as well as Hamas?  They do share one goal, the destruction of Israel.  Sure, Obama is friendly to the Jews when he is looking for campaign contributions from AIPAC but as a long time friend of the AAAN and it’s leaders, Obama has no love for Israel.

  That picture (above) came from the website owned by Ali Abunimah, Obama friend and AAAN member, who felt betrayed by Obama when he decided to run for office and went to AIPAC, the Jewish PAC, to raise money.  The third member of the AAAN, Obama is close friends with Rashid Khalidi.  All three have close ties to terrorists.

  Here are the 10 worst anti Israeli statements from America’s first Muslim presidency:

  And unlike every president before him. Obama has never once demanded that any Muslim country accept Israel’s right to exist.  Not once.  With an enemy like Obama, who needs Hamas?”

 

    Read this collection of insults and diplomatic slights from the Obama administration towards Israel . No American president has ever treated our staunchest mideast ally in this fashion . Of course none of our president’s have ever been Muslim before .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Iran: White House Lying About Details Of Nuke Deal

 

 

 

 

” Iranian officials say that the White House is misleading the public about the details of an interim nuclear agreement reached over the weekend in Geneva.”

 

 

What ? The Obama administration is misleading the public ? That couldn’t happen .

 

 

” The White House released a multi-page fact sheet containing details of the draft agreement shortly after the deal was announced.

However, Iranian foreign ministry official on Tuesday rejected the White House’s version of the deal as “invalid” and accused Washington of releasing a factually inaccurate primer that misleads the American public.”

 

 

Why would anyone doubt the word of Barack Obama or John Kerry ?

 

 

” “What has been released by the website of the White House as a fact sheet is a one-sided interpretation of the agreed text in Geneva and some of the explanations and words in the sheet contradict the text of the Joint Plan of Action, and this fact sheet has unfortunately been translated and released in the name of the Geneva agreement by certain media, which is not true,” Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham told the Iranian press on Tuesday.”

 

 

 

   While the Iranian regime is hardly a bastion of truth , the administration has a clear motive to lie regarding it’s recent capitulation to the “mad mullahs” of the People’s Revolution . 

 In a glaring indication of the ignorance of the US public the latest poll show the American people (the polling sample anyway) support the nuke agreement by a margin of 44% to 22% .

   Not spoken of in the Reuters article on the poll is the sizable 34% who offered no opinion or didn’t know , but that didn’t prevent the news agency from trumpeting the headline ” American’s Support Iran Deal By A 2 to 1 Margin” … a very misleading statement in our opinion .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OBAMA GIVES IRAN THE BOMB

 

 

 

 

” The agreement reached late Saturday night between Iran and the United States — and the rest of the United Nations’ “P5+1” gang — will enhance Iran’s ability to produce nuclear weapons whenever it decides to do so. It makes war in the Middle East nearly a certainty, rather than protecting us against it.

  For Obama — and while he is president, for us — there is no responsibility so great that it cannot be sacrificed to political expediency, no duty so grave that it cannot be ignored.

  America has an obligation to itself, and to allies such as Israel, to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear arms. Four American presidents — George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — have recognized this duty by stating firmly an American policy that Iran is not to be allowed to obtain nuclear weapons. The first three of those presidents share the distinction of having done nothing to enforce that policy. The fourth has assured his place in history by surrendering the policy to Iran’s ambitions.”

 

 

History will not be kind … assuming anyone survives to write it .

 

 

 

 

 

U.S. Obama Unfreezes $8 Billion In Iranian Assets

 

We trust this man for the security of the world ?

 

 

” The United States released $8 billion in frozen assets to Iran on Sunday in a move meant to ensure Tehran’s compliance with a nuclear pact signed over the weekend, according to top Iranian officials.

Iranian government spokesman Mohammad Baqher Nobakht confirmed on Monday morning that the U.S. government had unfrozen $8 billion in assets that had been previously blocked by the Obama administration.

 

    Undoubtably nothing could have kept Bagher Nobakht from confirming in a most public way that the Obama/Kerry capitulation contingent had in fact engorged the Iranian terror coffers to the tune of $8 Billion dollars . The “smart diplomacy” of Barack “Peace Prize” Obama is paying off in spades … if you are a terrorist or jew hater … for the rest of us ? Not so much .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Israel And Iran Agree – Nuke Deal Is Iranian Victory

 

 

 

” The nuclear agreement with Iran is being touted by the Obama administration as a significant step in keeping Iran from moving towards nuclear weapons.

In reality, the agreement is confirmation of Iran’s uranium enrichment program at a relatively high level, although some of the highest level enrichment is supposed to be suspended. The fact is that in return for a weakening of sanctions that were putting great pressure on Iran, the centrifuges keep spinning, the facilities are maintained, and at best the length of time for an Iranian nuclear “breakout” has been lengthened for a short period.

Eli Lake at The Daily Beast notes the significance:

Under the interim agreement Iran will be allowed to enrich uranium at low levels. Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif said the deal recognized his country’s nuclear program. This is a major victory for Iran whose leaders have insisted for nearly a decade that it has the right to enrich uranium under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Officially, the Obama administration has not recognized that any country has this right under the treaty. It has argued that Iran has to adhere to the terms of prior U.N. Security Council resolutions that prohibit Iran from enrichment.”

 

   Once again Israel finds itself alone , thanks to an appeasement minded American president and his haughty Sec-Def . What more could we expect to come from the man who has repeatedly stabbed our greatest mideast ally in the back .  Dennis Miller said it best : ” BiBi…just think of it as one less phone call you gotta make when it’s go time.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abject Surrender By The United States

 

 

 

” This interim agreement is badly skewed from America’s perspective.  Iran retains its full capacity to enrich uranium, thus abandoning a decade of Western insistence and Security Council resolutions that Iran stop all uranium-enrichment activities. Allowing Iran to continue enriching, and despite modest (indeed, utterly inadequate) measures to prevent it from increasing its enriched-uranium stockpiles and its overall nuclear infrastructure, lays the predicate for Iran fully enjoying its “right” to enrichment in any “final” agreement.  Indeed, the interim agreement itself acknowledges that a “comprehensive solution” will “involve a mutually defined enrichment program.”  This is not, as the Obama administration leaked before the deal became public, a “compromise” on Iran’s claimed “right” to enrichment. This is abject surrender by the United States.

  In exchange for superficial concessions, Iran achieved three critical breakthroughs. First, it bought time to continue all aspects of its nuclear-weapons program the agreement does not cover (centrifuge manufacturing and testing; weaponization research and fabrication; and its entire ballistic missile program). Indeed, given that the interim agreement contemplates periodic renewals, Iran may have gained all of the time it needs to achieve weaponization not of simply a handful of nuclear weapons, but of dozens or more.”

 

   Israel has always had much to fear from an Obama administration and now the worst of those fears have been realized . Kerry and Obama have essentially thrown Israel to the wolves and the massive bloodshed just over the horizon will be on their hands .

 

” Most importantly, the deal leaves the basic strategic realities unchanged. Iran’s nuclear program was, from its inception, a weapons program, and it remains one today. Even modest constraints, easily and rapidly reversible, do not change that fundamental political and operational reality.  And while some already-known aspects of Iran’s nuclear program are returned to enhanced scrutiny, the undeclared and likely unknown military work will continue to expand, thus recalling the drunk looking for his lost car keys under the street lamp because of the better lighting.”

Israel Said To Be Working With Saudi Arabia On Iran Strike Plan

 

 

 

” Israel is working on coordinating plans for a possible military strike with Saudi Arabia, with Riyadh prepared to provide tactical support to Jerusalem, a British newspaper reported early Sunday.

The two countries have both united in worry that the West may come to terms with Iran, easing sanctions and allowing the Islamic Republic to continue its nuclear program.

According to the Sunday Times, Riyadh has agreed to let Israel use its airspace in a military strike on Iran and cooperate over the use of rescue helicopters, tanker planes and drones.

The Saudis are furious* and are willing to give Israel all the help it needs,” an unnamed diplomatic source told the paper. “

* Who do you suppose they are furious with ? Obama’s foreign policy , or lack there-of , has brought about “change we can believe in” . But will it bring “peace in our time” ? The outlook is bleak .

   It is truly an upside down world when the Israeli’s have to count on France and Saudi Arabia to protect them from the idiocies of the American government . Did you ever think you would live to see the day that , as an American , you were more proud of the super socialist French leader Francois Hollande and the terror financing House of Saud than you were of your own “beacon of freedom” in DC ? 

On Iran, Expect A Fool’s Bargain

 

 

 

” I don’t think we’re stupid” — John Kerry, November 10, 2013

It’s always a bad sign when your nation’s chief diplomat begins a process of tough negotiations with some brutal authoritarian adversaries by protesting his non-stupidity. Then again, we’ve reached the point where even Parisian socialists feel the need to remind the U.S. Secretary of State of certain undeniable geopolitical realities on the ground. So here we are, seriously entertaining what the French Foreign Minister rightly warned could be a “fool’s bargain” with Iran.

Attention last week was focused on the failure of the Western powers to reach an interim nuclear deal with Tehran. That was the potential deal that made the French nervous. The bigger picture, however, is the broader set of negotiations over the coming months and their implications for American national security.

If Iran actually were to agree to a complete and verifiable dismantling of its nuclear weapons program, stop enriching and reprocessing uranium, shut down key facilities, and ship out all related materials – in full cooperation with international inspectors – then, of course, this would be most welcome. But there is little prospect of this kind of cooperation, or of this kind of deal.  Iran hasnever even admitted that it has a nuclear weapons program, and it has been regularly mendacious about the true extent of its uranium enrichment facilities. This is not the behavior of a country simply looking for the peaceful use of nuclear power … or of one willing to give up the bomb. “
