French Parliament Debates Recognizing Palestine

 

 

 

 

 

 

” France’s lower house of Parliament on Friday debated a measure urging the government to recognize an independent Palestine. The Socialist government supports the idea of two states, but argues that it’s too early for outright recognition.

  Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius said France is working at the United Nations for a resolution to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations — and to set a two-year deadline for success.

” France will recognize a Palestinian state,” Fabius told the lawmakers, but the question is “when, and how.” “

Israel To Ease Gun Controls After Attack

 

 

 

 

 

” Israel is to ease controls on carrying weapons for self-defence after a deadly Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Tuesday.

” In the coming hours, I will ease restrictions on carrying weapons,” he said in remarks broadcast on public radio, indicating it would apply to anyone with a license to carry a gun, such as private security guards and off-duty army officers.

  Aharonovitch did not elaborate, but it is believed that under the planned changes security personnel would be allowed to carry their arms even when off duty.

  There would also be a “tightening of controls on people coming and going” from areas of annexed Arab east Jerusalem where there have been almost daily clashes between police and stonethrowers for nearly five months.

  Tuesday’s attack saw two Palestinians from the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Jabal Mukaber bursting into a synagogue during morning prayer and attacking worshippers with meat cleavers and a gun.

  They killed four people and wounded another eight before being shot dead by police.”

White House Tries To Walk Back ‘Chickenshit’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The White House on Wednesday went into damage control over a senior administration official’s description of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickenshit,” saying the remarks were “counterproductive.”

“ Comments like that do not reflect the administration’s views,” said White House press secretary Josh Earnest, calling the U.S.-Israeli relationship “as strong as ever.”

  However, the Obama-Netanyahu relationship has always been frosty, and the latest insult further strains ongoing talks between the two leaders about how to address widespread unrest in the Middle East.

  In a story published by the Atlantic Tuesday, senior administration officials framed Netanyahu as a cowardly politician solely motivated by self-interest. “

Memo From US Consulate Refers To Jerusalem Terror Attack As ‘Traffic Incident’

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Hours after a Palestinian terrorist drove his car into a crowd waiting at a light rail station in Jerusalem, the US consulate in the city issued a memo referring to the attack as a “traffic incident”. 

  A three-month-old baby was killed and seven other people were wounded when Abdel Rahman a-Shaludi drove his car across incoming traffic to strike the people waiting at the station. The baby girl, Chaya Zissel Braun, had American citizenship.

  The memo was sent to employees of the American consulate, which is based in East Jerusalem. It asks staff to report “any emergency.” “

NDTV Exclusive: How Hamas Assembles And Fires Rockets

 

 

 

Hamas Rockets

 

 

 

” In the minutes before the ceasefire kicked in at Gaza this morning,  Hamas fired a flurry of rockets towards Israel – 30 according to some counts.

  Israel has argued that that these rockets are fired from civilian areas, and this is why its retaliatory strikes can result in civilian casualties.

  But this morning, NDTV witnessed one such rocket silo being created under a tent right next to the hotel where our team was staying.  Minutes later, we saw the rocket being fired, just before the 72-hour ceasefire came into effect.

  It began with a mysterious  tent with a blue canopy that bobbed up yesterday (August 4) at 6:30 am in an open patch of land next to our window.  We saw three men making a multitude of journeys in and out of the tent, sometimes with wires.

  An hour later, they emerged, dismantled the tent, changed their clothes and walked away.

  The next morning – today – we woke to news of the 72-hour ceasefire but just before it was to take effect, the rocket next to our hotel was fired.  There was a loud explosion and a whooshing sound. The cloud of smoke that rose was captured by our cameraperson.

  This report is being aired on NDTV and published on ndtv.com after our team left the Gaza strip – Hamas has not taken very kindly to any reporting of its rockets being fired. But just as we reported the devastating consequences of Israel’s offensive on Gaza’s civilians, it is equally important to report on how Hamas places those very civilians at risk by firing rockets deep from the heart of civilian zones. “

The Celebrities Risking Worldwide Scorn By Supporting Israel

 

 

 

 

” My new heroes and heroines are not great leaders or deep thinkers. I’m inspired by the courage of comedienne Joan Rivers, radio shock jock Howard Stern, plus a small knot of uncommonly brave celebrities.

  These awesome dudes and dudettes have risked worldwide condemnation by publicly supporting Israel’s right to defend itself from relentless rocket attacks by Hamas terrorists.

“ If you are anti-Israel, you are anti-America,’’ Stern, 60, declared last month on his Sirius XM show. “It’s the only democracy over there. It’s the only friend we have who’s willing to fight and stand up for what’s right.’’

  Rivers, 81, let ’er rip to TMZ.com. “Let me just tell you, if New Jersey were firing rockets into New York, we would wipe them out,’’ she said. “ If we heard they were digging tunnels from New Jersey to New York, we would get rid of Jersey.” Well put.   Simon Cowell, 54, is the English-born music producer who rose to fame as Mr. Nasty on “American Idol,’’ “Britain’s Got Talent’’ and “The X Factor.’’  

  Last October, he did a mitzvah. In a bit of charity that came to most of the world’s attention only recently, Cowell donated $150,000 to the Friends of the Israeli Defense Forces, an organization formed by Holocaust survivors that pays for the education and care of Israeli troops and supports families of slain soldiers.”

From “The Grid ” by PJMedia

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Although in 2005 Israel gave up Gaza to the Palestinians in a naive “land for peace” unilateral withdrawal, the result was not peace but rather over 10,000 rockets fired from Gaza at Israeli civilian communities. Here we show how Hamas and other groups weaponize Palestinian civilians and institutions to attack Israel.  
 

The Hamas Charter of 1988 – Defines the Hamas Mission Against Israel and Jews

  • Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it.
  • Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah’s victory is realized.
  • The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said:

“The Day of Judgment will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem). “

Israel’s Most Dangerous Enemy

 

 

Obama smoked Ganja... Netanyahu smoked terrorists.. http://t.co/MIFWxE1A

 

 

 

” Barack Obama is apparently very angry with Bibi Netanyahu. 

  We have known for some time, via hot mike and other methods, that neither he nor his secretary of State much care for the Israeli prime minister. But — perhaps exacerbated by a multiplicity of foreign and domestic policy failures, plus atrocious poll numbers, one this weekend showing Romney beating him handily were the election held today — Obama seemed more irked than usual.”

 

 

   If you don’t think that Obama is a serious threat to Israel’s existence consider the fact that Obama , with the use of our tax dollars , helps fund Hamas and their attempts to drive the Israelis into the sea  .

 

 

Hamas Tunnels

 

 

” He needed someone to beat up since the world was beating him up. And the Israelis had just hugely embarrassed his secretary of State (and by extension him) by pointing out their absurd bias in favor of Hamas in ceasefire negotiations, so absurd in fact that they outraged even Israel’s most famous liberal/left politician, Tzipi Livni, who would normally do almost anything for a chance for peace. (Ironically, the details of the pro-Hamas negotiations in which Israeli security concerns — the tunnels, demilitarization, etc. — were ignored were exposed by Barak Ravid in Israel’s most liberal newspaper, Haaretz.) “

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.” “

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.”

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 …

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.”
