Shin Bet Thwarts Terrorist Attack, Arrests 11 Palestinians

 

 

 

 

” Eleven Palestinians from the West Bank have been arrested on suspicion of attempting to carry out an attack on Israeli troops in the Hebron area and planning other attacks on Israelis, the Shin Bet security service announced Monday.

  The Palestinians are from the Hebron area and are affiliated with Hamas, security forces said, adding that explosives and guns intended for use in the attacks were also found.

” The activity of this cell reflects the substantial threat from Hamas activity in Hebron, especially from militant operatives who have been arrested in the past and returning to the circle of terror,” the Shin Bet said in a statement.

  One of the suspects – Salem Saltan, 28 – has been held in an Israeli military jail and in administrative detention.”

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.”

Palestinians set fire to an effigy of US President Barack Obama during a protest against Obama’s visit to the West Bank, in the southern Gaza Strip town of Rafah on March 21, 2013. Obama arrived in the West Bank to a more prickly welcome from Palestinian leaders than the warm embrace he won in Israel the day before. “

” Effigies of Barack Obama were burned by protesters in the town of Rafah ahead of the president’s visit to Ramallah on Thursday.

Obama, who arrived in the West Bank on Thursday morning, urged Palestinians and Israelis to resume peace talks.

“Even though both sides may have areas of strong disagreement, maybe engaging in activities that the other side considers to be a breach of good faith, we have to push through those things to try to get to an agreement,” he said. ”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Backup Presidential Limo On Its Way For Obama In Israel After Fuel Filling Failure

 

 

 

 

” One of the limousines in Barack Obama‘s fleet has broken after reports that it was mistakenly filled with the wrong fuel at the start of the US president’s visit to Israel.

Another limo is on its way from Jordan, according to Ma’an News agency, citing Israel’s Channel 10, to replace one that was filled with diesel instead of gasolene.

Ma’an reports:

Hebrew-language websites described the malfunctioning limo, brought from Washington specially for the visit, as the first unforseen incident during Obama’s three-day visit to the region.

Obama is scheduled to leave the airport to Jerusalem in a helicopter. A parade of Black Hawk helicopters will follow the presidential helicopter carrying his delegation.”

 

 

 

   Gee , a private flight for a limousine … how much will that add to the debt ? Does any competence exist in this administration ?

There’s a metaphor in this so mewhere … a failed presidential ride for a failed presidential visit … for a failed presidential foreign policy … for a failed presidency … We’re sure the failure analogies could continue for a few more paragraphs pages .

   On the other hand , he certainly doesn’t need a limo to visit a city that his own White House map says doesn’t exist ...

” The White House has released what it says is a map of Israel. The only problem is that Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the Golan Heights are missing.

An Obama administration video highlighting the president’s plans for his Mideast trip depicts Jerusalem, the Golan and the West Bank – also known as Judea and Samaria – as non-Israeli territory.

The Washington Free Beacon, which first reported the discrepancies, noted the video shows the Golan Heights as part of Syria; Jerusalem is depicted as part of the West Bank; and northern Israel is shown as part of Lebanon.”

 

 

 

 

 

The Israelis Need To Really Demonstrate That They Understand The Pain Of An Oppressed People

 

 

  What people in the history of humanity have been more oppressed , persecuted and abused than the Jewish people ? The utterances of the Obama administration and it’s representatives will have the world at war before this term is over . How could such allegedly well-educated people say such ignorant things ? 

 

 

 

 

 

” Speaking at a forumat the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington on Friday, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Israel is suspicious of Palestinians and doesn’t care enough about their plight.

“I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said, after praising the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, for workingwith her in 2009 to offer a moratorium on building new Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank. “
