Really Lame Narrative... Don't even bother to click and see it:
Don't make this another election where claims are left unchecked. Even if you vote Democrat you should have this information available. We really don't want to see more voter fraud because we are afraid to question the powers that be. You should also know that the Tea Party was started by many Hillary Clinton leaning Democrats during the primary in 2008. I know because I got into frictions with the early Tea Party movement on twitter... which was also very Anti-Israel and centered a lot of their energy towards cutting off aid to Israel. Do not confuse the Tea Party with Dick Cheney. The Republicans did not move into the movement till after they lost the election. The early Tea Party was against the war. The Tea Party was very against Bush who ran up a debt of 3 trillion as compared to Obama's 8 trillion. What is depicted in this video is disingenuous at best and probably an orchestrated lie.

(1) most of the Ron Paul people voted for Obama and felt betrayed. they are not Neo Conservative.

(2) just because a government is hostile to oil drilling doesn't mean the government doesn't use those same oil company failures to extract money for the government. We have seen that with BP. this argument against oil is part of the problem here. people against so called global warming DO realize the claims being made and understand the small changes in temperature are not drastic changes. that denies a correlative that those small changes were fraudulent data and we have not seen any new data to convince us otherwise.

(3) most tea party people I met were lesbians. this is a fraudulent portrayal of them. one Tea Party person I had to block was @MayorSam on twitter. she is also on facebook. this leftist somehow fuses two unlike people. What is even stranger is the way the dog seems to do the majority of talking. In the conservative version the feminist leftist does more talking. how is that? how is it that both the leftists xtranormal and the conservative xtranormal http://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=164771506885970&ref=mf both allow the leftist to dominate and do the majority of the talking? how is that?

(4) The Tea Party movement is not hostile to Islam. that is the biggest lie here. In fact their leaders are Hezbollah financiers. Jack Abramoff's friend Grover Norquist is case in point. or should I mention Jihad Darrel Issa who is a major leader of the Tea Party and a defender of Lebanon because.... da dum! he is Lebanese? Islam is not hostile to the Tea Party... and vice versa. There is a reason I have been attacking the Tea Party all year.

Jachnun and Hilbeh

Jachnun served with fresh grated tomato and skhug

Jachnun is a traditional Yemenite Jewish dish prepared from rolled dough which is baked on very low heat for about ten hours. The dough is rolled out thinly, brushed with shortening, and rolled up, similar to puff pastry. It turns a dark amber color and has a slightly sweet taste. It is traditionally served with a crushed/grated tomato dip, hard boiled eggs and skhug. The dough used for jachnun is the same as that used for malawach.

Jachnun is served by Jews of Yemenite descent on Shabbat mornings, after having been left in a slow oven overnight.According to Jewish law, it is forbidden to light a fire or cook on Shabbat.

Jachnun has become popular in Israel and is now consumed by other Jewish ethnic groups. Frozen jachnun is sold in supermarkets for those who want to skip the time consuming process of rolling the dough into layers.

I enjoy my Jachnun served with Harisa and fenugreek

Jachnun ingredients

  • 3 3⁄4 c All-purpose flour
  • 2 T Sugar
  • 1 T baking powder
  • 1 1⁄2 T Salt
  • 1 large Eggs
  • 1 1⁄4 c water
  • 3⁄4 c Margarine, cut into 6 pieces

Cooking Jachnun

1. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in food processor and process to blend.

2. Add egg and 1 cup water and process with on/off turns to mix. With motor running, gradually add remaining water, about ¼ cup, adding enough so mixture comes together to a smooth, fairly stiff dough.

3. It will be sticky.

4. Remove from processor.

5. Kneadi dough well by slapping vigorously on the work surface.

6. Divide into 6 pieces and knead each one with a slapping motion until smooth.

7. Roll each in your palm to a ball.

8. Put on an oiled plate or tray, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

9. Oil working surface and rolling pin. Let margarine stand at room temperature until very soft.

10. Roll out 1 ball of dough on oiled surface to a very thin 12-inch square.

11. To help stretch dough, pull it gently from time to time by hand, until very thin.

12. If dough tears, simply press it together.

13. Spread with a piece of soft margarine.

14. Foldi in half, then in half again to make a long strip.

15. Roll up strip from a short side in a tight cylinder.

16. Repeat with 5 remaining pieces of dough.

17. Put in greased, shallow 8-inch square baking dish.

18. Cover with foil and a lid and refrigerate at least 2 or up to 8 hours.

19. Preheat oven to 200°F.

20. Bakei pastries 13-14 hours or until golden brown.

21. Serve hot.
I have a fantastic recipe for hilbeh that i got from an old Yemenite man who used to serve in the civil guard in Kiryat Arba. He was very proud of it, and was convinced that women could not cook nearly as well as men. I didn't try to dissuade him -- his recipes, at least, were good -- and obviously he got them from his wife or his mother!!
Take a few tablespoons of ground fenugreek (hilbeh) and soak it in a large bowl of water for at least six hours, but preferably overnight (Thursday night is best, since this is for Shabbat). Drain off the water. Place the resulting gel in the food processor. Add lemon juice (to taste -- if you're using 3 T hilbeh, then figure about 1/4 c. fresh lemon juice, at least), 1/2 t fresh ground black pepper, 1/2 t fresh zhug (Yemenite hot sauce), salt to taste, 1 t. fresh ground cumin and 1 small tomato cut into eighths (yes I know this sounds weird).  Run it at high in the food processor for at least 3 minutes, until it is whipped into a light and fluffy texture, and almost white in color (except for the pinkish tint from the tomato).
It is amazing. I like a lot of lemon in it, but some folks don't.
Alternatively, some people like their hilbehonly whipped with salt and lemon.

Enjoy!  Yemenites dip their challah in this for the first course at Shabbat meals, and also put it in their chicken soup.  I love it with the challah, but I draw the line at the soup....
Chana

John Stewart's 'Sanity' Rally to include Code Pink, Anarchists

Labels: » » » »


Comedian Jon Stewart
announces his
Rally to Restore Sanity
on Comedy Central on Sept. 16.
It is looking like John Stewart's "Restore Sanity" rally will define sanity rather peculiarly. Code Pink, Anarchists, and pro-abortion groups plan to attend at the Lincoln Memorial on October 30th.

via americanthinker.com
The O’Jays also hit the stage at Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s ‘Rally to Restore Sanity And/Or Fear.’
About midway through the show, which already featured a nearly 40-minute set from John Legend and The Roots, Stewart announced the next performer, Yusuf Islam. The folk icon formerly known as Cat Stevens, hit the stage with an acoustic rendition of “Peace Train.” However, instead of letting Yusuf placidly strum along, Colbert stormed the stage, ranting about the song’s message of harmony. The satirical pundit then proclaimed, “My train is arriving at the stage now and the conductor has an important announcement to make!”   (Source)

Yusuf Islam (aka Cat Stevens), accused of backing Salman Rusdie fatwah, appears at DC ‘Rally to Restore Sanity’
Among those who appeared at Jon Stewart’s DC snarkfest (and attempt to suppress Democratic GOTV activists?) Rally to Restore Sanity in DC today was Yusuf Islam, the artist formerly known as Cat Stephens. Here he is:

There’s more, of course:
It’s a curious choice, to put it mildly, given Yusuf’s alleged support of thefatwah against Salman Rushdie. All audio of the words he used to allegedly support the fatwah (which he has strenuously insisted he did not do) has been removed from YouTube, apparently at the crooner’s behest. Here are some of those words spoken by an actor (the Telegraph has more of this crap)

War Criminal Sharia “Judge” Backs Rape In Marriage

Labels: » » »


Hurry Up Harry

This is a guest post by Akash

The senior cleric of Britain’s main Islamic sharia court has sparked outrage by claiming that non-consensual sex in marriage cannot be called rape and is, therefore, not a criminal offence. In an interview with the Samosa blog, Sheikh Maulana Abu Sayeed, speaking as the head of the Islamic Sharia Council, said: “Clearly there cannot be any rape within the marriage. Maybe aggression, maybe indecent activity… Because when they got married, the understanding was that sexual intercourse was part of the marriage, so there cannot be anything against sex in marriage. Of course, if it happened without her desire, that is no good, that is not desirable.”

British law was changed in 1991, making rape within marriage illegal but this is a detail which the head of the Islamic Sharia Council dismisses as an “aggression” against the man.

Abu Sayeed considers it “not Islamic” to classify non-consensual marital sex as rape and prosecute offenders. In an astonishing exchange with the Samosa journalist, Sayeed revealed why he believes the prosecution of marital rape was due to misguided Western values, such as equality and justice:

“Why it is happening in this society is because they have got this idea of so-called equality, equal rights. And they are misusing these equal rights in every single aspect of human conduct. That’s why. It is one aggression against another, and that is bigger aggression against minor one.”

I asked Sheikh Sayeed what he considered to be the “bigger aggression”.

“To call it rape. Rape is a criminal offence in this country; man will end up in prison for three, five years or more.”

So the non-consensual sex is the minor aggression, and calling it rape is the major aggression?

“Yes”

Why is calling it rape a major aggression?

“Because within the marriage contract it is inherent there that man will have sexual intercourse with his wife. Of course, if he does something against her wish or in a bad time etc, then he is not fulfilling the etiquettes, not that he is breaching any code of sharia – he is not coming to that point. He may be disciplined, and he may be made to ask forgiveness. That should be enough.”

It is deplorable that the head of the main Islamic Sharia court should maintain a position completely at odds with British law and to claim that the majority of women who say they have been raped or violently abused by their husbands are merely fabricating their stories to “expedite” divorce proceedings.

Abu Sayeed in 1971

But Imam Abu Sayeed has a sordid and viciously violent past which few people in Britain know anything about.

In 1995, Channel4 aired a Dispatches documentary called ‘War Crimes File’ which exposed Abu Sayeed as one of three war criminals who had fled Bangladesh to live in Britain. Sayeed was then a “head teacher of a Muslim school and a co-opted member of Tower Hamlets Education Council” but the documentary revealed that he was a senior member of the Al-Badr death squad, a paramilitary offshoot of the Jamaat-e-Islam, which was responsible for the death of thousands of men and the systematic rape of untold more women during the Independence War of Bangladesh in 1971.

Soon after the documentary was broadcast, it was quickly banned in the UK and remains so to this day, thanks to the litigious hair-trigger of Choudhury Mueen-Uddin, senior trustee of Muslim Aid, who, along with Sayeed, was exposed in the documentary as one of the three war criminals.

Fortunately the internet is still the bane of censors, because the documentary footage can be found in its entirety on the superb Bangladesh Genocide Archive.

As a young man, Sayeed was involved with the Islami Chattro Shangyo – the student wing of Jamaat-e-Islam. The Jamaat was then, as it is today, an extremist group of Muslim fundamentalists. In July 1971, the Jamaat-e-Islam organised a secret meeting in Dhaka, the purpose of which was to form the Al-Badr death squad, a violent jihad force created to aid the Pakistan army. Jamaat wanted to remain a part of the Islamic state of Pakistan and was violently opposed to the Independence movement. And in his home town of Sylhet, Abu Sayeed was recruited as a senior member of the Al-Badr.

Abu Sayeed’s role in the brutal Al Badr death squad is confirmed in the War Crimes File documentary by numerous eye-witness accounts and first-hand sources.

In August 1971, Al-Badr sent Sayeed to Dhaka for training in both military and intelligence gathering techniques. He then returned home to Sylhet where he was involved with secret meetings with the Jamaat-e-Islami leaders. His task was to draw up killing lists of people suspected of involvement in the liberation movement. The names were then handed to the Pakistan army who, with the help of local collaborators, would execute them.

In addition to preparing hit lists, the Jamaat and Al-Badr were also involved with organising mass rape and abducting women for Pakistani soldiers.

Here in Britain, Abu Sayeed has recreated himself into a respectable Muslim cleric, helped along the way by well-placed puff pieces in the media. The UCL Hospital newsletter ran a short vignette on him under ‘A Day in the Life of Maulana Abu Sayeed’:

When the trust’s Muslim Chaplain Imam Abu Sayeed left Bangladesh he arrived with a heavy heart. “I cherish my home and its people. I intended to stay a couple of years and then go back,” he says. Thirty years and four children on, he’s still here and doing the rounds at UCLH wherever he is needed. themselves physically before spiritually cleansing themselves within, which their faith requires.

And from another syrupy piece in the Guardian:

“In the council’s backroom, however, surrounded by gold-embossed tomes of Islamic jurisprudence and brown cardboard boxes, Sayeed puts his hand on his chest with pride as he explains what his work means to him. “I feel I could at last do some real good thing in the practical life of people,” he says. “I am not doing it for any financial gain in this world; I am doing it for immense reward from the Lord Almighty in the hereafter, so it fills my heart with all these riches”.

Abu Sayeed has very successfully laundered his personal history of the last 39 years. After all, he is now “Sheikh Sayeed”, an ex-headmaster as well the Muslim “chaplain” at UCL Hospital and the head of Islamic Sharia Council of Britain. However his subversion of British law in support of marital rape comes as no surprise to those who know the man’s history and background.

IMG[3][1]Gory film artist tests obscenity law

Special effects makeup artist Remy Couture pleaded not guilty to charges of moral corruption and distribution of obscene material for his short films.
...I'd like to see him recreate this event.... 
From the Saudi Gazette:
The failed assassination attempt on Prince Muhammad Bin Naif, Assistant Minister of Interior for Security Affairs, Thursday night was planned by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula which operates from Yemen, sources confirmed.
According to Okaz sources, the bomber who detonated himself only a meter away from the Prince was part of a terrorist cell formed to target oil installations and public figures.
He had slipped into the Kingdom from Mareb, east of Sana’a, Yemen’s Foreign Minister Abu-Bakr Al-Qirbi told The Associated Press.
“He was in Yemen,” said Al-Qirbi. “He claimed that he was going to hand himself over to Saudi authorities and make a statement to his followers to abandon Al-Qaeda principles.”
Okaz sources said the bomb was implanted in the attacker’s rectum, which could explain why he refused to drink coffee at the Prince’s Court.
The bomber had sent word he wanted to surrender personally to the Prince who had ordered that he not be searched to encourage others to come forward.
At the Prince’s home in Jeddah’s north Obhur beach area Thursday night around 11.30 P.M., the attacker was in line to enter a gathering of well-wishers for Ramadan when he blew himself up. The Prince was lightly injured in the attack. The bomber died.
Al Arabiya (Arabic) adds more detail than you might be interested in, including interviews with experts on how exactly one can create an assbomb and how long it can be inside one's body. Al Arabiya's version says that the terrorist was searched but not quite that intimately. He was only a couple of meters away from the prince when he detonated, so it looks like Al Qaeda and its terrorist pals will be working a little harder at perfecting this technology.

G-spot doesn't appear to exist say researchers and I am pissed at the ladies who said I could not find it

Labels: » » »
Some are firm believers

how many times did the feminists preach to you about this one? Another day, another fiction of the gender engineers.
The hope that monoculture    could create equivalences between the genders just hit another speed bump.

The elusive erogenous zone said to exist in some women may be a myth, say researchers who have hunted for it.

well I could of told them that, but then the jokes would of been flying
Their study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine is the biggest yet, involving 1,800 women, and it found no proof.
The King's College London team believe the G-spot may be a figment of women's imagination, encouraged by magazines and sex therapists.


But sexologist Beverley Whipple who helped popularise the G-spot idea said the work was "flawed".

hey Beverly... why did you popularise it then? Might it be power issues?


She said the researchers had discounted the experiences of lesbian or bisexual women and failed to consider the effects of having different sexual partners with different love-making techniques.

so only lesbians or bisexuals can attempt variety? oh... I get it... as long it isn't a man. the moment that talk about Homosexuality then it has to be good... right? typical bias in academia. It's a wonder we aren't extinct by now.





It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never been proven and pressurise women and men too
Study author Andrea Burri
The women in the study, who were all pairs of identical and non-identical twins, were asked whether they had a G-spot.
hey,,, now that sounds fun.
If one did exist, it would be expected that both identical twins, who have the same genes, would report having one.
now eugenics and Lysenkoism?

Perhaps no field of scientific inquiry is as likely to be misunderstood and abused as genetics. Part of the misunderstanding arises from archaic views about what genes are and how they are expressed during development. The extreme abuse of genetic information at various times has mainly been attributable to larger efforts to use genetic arguments in order to shape society and science according to political agendas (i.e., eugenics and Lysenkoism). If this is the backdrop against which culture assimilates genetic information, then what will happen as a result of the current genetic revolution? Genetic knowledge and technology are advancing at . . . [Full Text of this Article]
But this pattern did not emerge and the identical twins were no more likely to share a G-spot than non-identical twins who share only half of their genes.
conclusion wrong. end result recorded correctly
Mythical
Co-author of the study Professor Tim Spector said: "Women may argue that having a G-spot is due to diet or exercise, but in fact it is virtually impossible to find real traits.
I think it has something to do with being a manipulative tyrant in bed and not letting men be men. sit back and enjoy the ride ladies. telling us what to do isn't fun for you either.
It's fine to go looking for the G-spot but do not worry if you don't find it
Sexual psychologist Dr Petra Boynton
"This is by far the biggest study ever carried out and shows fairly conclusively that the idea of a G-spot is subjective."
is that what it was? subjective? I could of sworn it meant that you were bullshit.
Colleague Andrea Burri was concerned that women who feared they lacked a G-spot might feel inadequate, which she says is unnecessary.
notice a man's feelings aren't important here
"It is rather irresponsible to claim the existence of an entity that has never been proven and pressurise women and men too."
that's better... thanks for caring about that part, but what about men's feelings? don't we have any?
Dr Petra Boynton, a sexual psychologist at University College London, said: "It's fine to go looking for the G-spot but do not worry if you don't find it.
"It should not be the only focus. Everyone is different."
here is the reality: if your woman is really selfish... which most are these days. they like to hop around on top and ignore you... that is if they haven't rejected men completely because most of us are broke from the abuse
The Gräfenberg Spot, or G-Spot, was named in honour of the German gynaecologist Ernst Gräfenberg who described it over 50 years ago and is said to sit in the front wall of the vagina some 2-5cm up.
I kept on pressing the button after I heard about it... even in a Cartoon called Southpark.... and it didn't make her happy. it is the up and down that does it... and frankly that is all over, but relative to an area. also just because you know where that area is... doesn't mean you know what to do with it. it can make the ladies uncomfortable as well and frankly it is your attitude that is more important... for both sexes.
Recently Italian scientists claimed they could locate the G-spot using ultrasound scans.
They said they had found an area of thicker tissue among the women reporting orgasms.
But specialists warned there could be other reasons for this difference.

FBI Incidents and Offenses - Hate Crime Statistics, 2008

Labels: » » » » » » » » » » »
HammerSkin Gangs in JAIL via strhatetalk.com

in a nation of 300 million, all of the religious-based hate crimes added together amount to less than a drop in the bucket. This is not to minimize the 964 hate crimes perpetrated against Jews last year, or those carried out against Muslims (128), Catholics (55), or Protestants (40). Some of those attacks were especially shocking or destructive; all of them should be punished. But surely the most obvious takeaway from the FBI’s statistics is not that anti-religious hate crimes are so frequent in America. It is that they are so rare.
Religious bias
 http://xrl.us/hatecrime
2009 Of the 1,575 victims of an anti-religious hate crime:
  • 71.9 percent were victims because of an offender’s anti-Jewish bias.
  • 8.4 percent were victims because of an anti-Islamic bias.
  • 3.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Catholic bias.
  • 2.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Protestant bias.
  • 0.7 percent were victims because of an anti-Atheist/Agnostic bias.
  • 8.3 percent were victims because of a bias against other religions
    (anti-other religion).
  • 4.3 percent were victims because of a bias against groups of individuals
    of varying religions (anti-multiple religions, group). (Based on Table 1.)
Here's what's interesting. 
There are approximately as many Jews as Muslims  in the United States

Which mass media outlets will report how much the numbers differ from the perceptions that many of them have worked so hard to promote?

How many mainstream publications will carefully avoid pointing out who the real main victims of hate crimes are in today's America? Note how many mass media outlets cover this story while avoiding the facts laid out above.

Is anyone going to do some soul-searching or change their behavior regarding the bashing of Jews and Israel, especially on campuses?

Will people in academia, media, and government sing the praises of America as a remarkably tolerant society when it comes to religion?

UPDATE: I am told that the CNN coverage explained none of the above points, focused on hate crimes against homosexuals, and blamed an upsurge in "fundamentalist" Christianity for these attacks.

[Note: African-Americans are roughly four to six times more numerous in the American population but suffer only a bit more than twice as many hate crimes.]

Religious bias

There were 1,606 hate crime offenses motivated by religious bias in 2008. A breakdown of these offenses shows:
  • 65.7 percent were anti-Jewish.
  • 13.2 percent were anti-other religion.
  • 7.7 percent were anti-Islamic.
  • 4.7 percent were anti-Catholic.
  • 4.2 percent were anti-multiple religions, group.
  • 3.7 percent were anti-Protestant.
  • 0.9 percent were anti-Atheism/Agnosticism/etc. (Based on Table 1.)
via fbi.gov h/t debbieschlussel.com
In 2001 (the year of 9/11), there were twice as many anti-Jewish incidents [in America] as there were anti-Muslim, according to the FBI. In 2002 and pretty much every year since, anti-Jewish incidents have outstripped anti-Muslim incidents by at least 6 to 1.

Transparent material developed that's twice as strong as Kevlar

Labels: »
Scientists in Israel have developed a transparent material with "the hardest organic nanostructure known to man," according to Discovery News. Based on artificial proteins similar to (and simpler than) the beta-amlyoid proteins that have been linked to Alzheimer's disease, and covered with transparent nanospheres, the new material is very, very strong: in order to cut it, a diamond-tipped probe would have to apply twice the pressure it would take to cut Kevlar. Researchers see it being used for anything from bulletproof armor to reinforced steel -- but don't throw out your old body armor yet! It could be years (if not decades) before this comes to market.
Every Jew in America should get one of these to protect themselves. With the hate crime statistic against Jews like it is and all the public relations that the Arabs have online... we need it.

To Obama Turkey is Israel's savior from a nuclear Iran? He just handed military data to Anakara

Labels: » » » » » » » »
Ankara seeks guarantees on Israel in missile shield talks with US - Turkey, in talks with the United States over a proposed missile defense system, has asked US officials whether non-NATO countries would have access to intelligence that sensors in the shield would gather, sources close to the negotiations have told Today's Zaman. US authorities, in return, have assuaged Turkish concerns, saying the intelligence will be out of reach for any non-NATO countries, including Israel.As a good will gesture, the US publicly humiliated Poland and the Czech Republic by breaking prior agreement with them to placate Russia, a move unlikely to go unnoticed by East Asian countries courted by Hillary Clinton. Instead, the Obama administration chose to place the fate of NATO’s planned missile-defense system in the notoriously untrustworthy hands of ever more Islamist Turkey. In return, Turkey demands that it have access to all date gathered by the missile defense system and that Israel will have none. Let us not forget that the system is designed in part to assure Israel that, if push comes to shove, it can live with a nuclear Iran.
How Stephens can claim that Iran has been successfully isolated is really beyond me given the fact that Turkey responded to Barack Obama's repeated overtures by drawing ever closer to Iran and Putin has activated the long delayed the Bushir nuclear facility. Even Hamid Karzai is bragging about receiving bags of Iranian money. Ahmadinejad has never been less isolated in his life. Indeed, he feels so secure that he decided to throw a bone to Obama in the form of a letter calling for renewed nuclear negotiations with Europe a few days before the Congressional elections. Obama is not capable of playing checkers with Ahmadinejad, not to mention Chess.

...but Ankara doesn't want Iran Named as Enemy in NATO missile system.  Points finger at Israel


--- Ankara seeks guarantees on Israel in missile shield talks with US
   Turkey, in talks with the United States over a proposed missile defense system, has asked US officials whether non-NATO countries would have access to intelligence that sensors in the shield would gather, sources close to the negotiations have told Today's Zaman. US authorities, in return, have assuaged Turkish concerns, saying the intelligence will be out of reach for any non-NATO countries, including Israel. 
Long-time NATO member Turkey has been holding discussions with the US over the proposed missile defense system. Although Turkey has not publicly rejected US requests to take part in the system, it is concerned that a possible deployment of anti-missile elements in its territory could harm its relations with Iran, which has drastically improved its economic and security ties with Turkey in recent years.
US officials have said on more than one occasion that the missile defense system is meant to address a growing missile threat from Iran, a statement that rattles Turkey, which insists Iran should not be mentioned as a threat in the proposed Europe-wide anti-missile system. The clock is ticking for a final deal as NATO Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen presses for a NATO decision on the matter during the alliance’s upcoming Lisbon summit on Nov. 19-20.
Turkey says it is not against establishment of a missile defense system for NATO’s European allies but insists in talks with the US that the project should be built for defensive, not offensive, purposes. Any clear reference to Iran or any other neighboring country as a threat in the proposed missile defense system runs counter to Ankara’s chief foreign policy objective: “zero problems” with neighbors. Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu is convinced that there is no need to mention any country as a source of threat as threats keep changing fast in today’s highly unpredictable world. Thus, dealing with the threat as it emerges is the practical choice. Sources said the Turkish argument looks reasonable to US authorities. Naming countries a source of threat is difficult in a practical sense, too, because NATO operates by principle of unanimity and it is not possible to classify a non-ally as threat if one of the allies is opposed. But the level of understanding permeating the ongoing negotiations is not enough to say what the final agreement will look like when the Lisbon summit convenes. Sources say even though there might be no formal reference to Iran in any written document, US officials may do so verbally in press statements during the summit.

Instant access to intelligence


Missile defense system plans were discussed during a NATO meeting of defense and foreign ministers in Brussels on Oct. 14.
Turkey also requests participation in decision-making and instant access to intelligence on any missile threat to be collected by sensors that will be deployed as part of the missile shield. The US has principally given the green light to the Turkish request for instant access to information but work is still under way to decide how the mechanism would work.
Another issue that came up in the negotiations was whether there would be any ships operating as part of the missile shield in the Black Sea. The proposed anti-missile system is planned to be mostly ship-based in earlier stages, with elements being deployed on land later. Ankara says terms of the 1936 Montreaux Convention, which severely restricts the passage of non-Turkish military vessels through the Straits, should be respected, thus no ship carrying missile defense system elements can pass through the Straits to reach Black Sea.
The US authorities have given assurances that there is no such plan since terms of the 1936 deal are clear. The missile defense system plans again put Turkey in a foreign policy dilemma over its ties with Iran. Western experts say Turkish refusal to join the proposed system would deepen concerns over an “axis shift” in the Turkish foreign policy, while participation in a system openly targeting Iran would disrupt Turkey’s zero-problem with neighbors policy and undermine its regional role. Many in Turkey believe that protecting Israel from a possible missile attack by Iranians is the secret purpose of the US-pioneered missile defense system. But Israel is not a NATO member and thus cannot receive protection from a NATO system. Israel also does not need protection from NATO as it already has its own national missile defense system that could counter threats from Iran or other possible enemies.
In fact, given the unpredictability of the security situation across the globe, it is possible that the missile defense system could even be used against Israel some day in the future. NATO is an organization that operates on the principle of collective defense and an attack on an ally is considered an attack on the entire alliance.
Relations between former allies Israel and Turkey took a nosedive following an Israeli offensive in Gaza in the winter of 2008-2009, which resulted in death of about 1,400 Palestinians. The tensions peaked when Israeli commandos killed eight Turks and one Turkish-American on an aid ship trying to break the Israeli blockade of Gaza on May 31 and relations have been at a standstill since then.
The proposed missile defense system, is much cheaper but also less capable than a dedicated anti-missile system proposed by the Bush administration, which caused a deep rift with Russia. Russia opposed the stationing of powerful radars and anti-missile batteries near its western borders. But it has not opposed the new system, although Russian officials have said it remains to be seen whether the two networks can be integrated.

Now age 24, Khadr was captured by U.S. forces in Afghanistan in July 2002 when he was 15 years old
Khadr said one of his interrogators at Bagram told him the story of a young Muslim who had lied to interrogators. The young man was transferred to a prison in the United States, where he was raped in the shower by “four big black guys” and may have died. “This story scared me very much and made me cry,” Khadr said in his statement.

EU-funded Israeli NGO launches anti-Israel video game (in an apparent attempt to capture the teen Demonization market)

Labels:

Children in the West Bank eagerly await the arrival of the rich and creamy Gaza treat.


Unfortunately, the dreams of such children are cruelly denied by the Israelis in a new "Game"
The Israeli NGO Gisha - whose stated objective is to ”protect the freedom of movement of Palestinians, especially Gaza residents” and uses “legal assistance and public advocacy to protect the rights of Palestinian residents” – recently released a video game called Safe Passage.
Gisha – whose donors include New Israel Fund, the EU, Norway, the Netherlands, Ireland, Germany, Oxfam GB, and (George Soros’s) Open Society Institute – is among the NGOs who characterize Israel using apartheid rhetoric.  Gisha also, per NGO Monitor:
“promotes the false claim that Gaza remains ‘occupied’ under international law, and that Israel has a legal obligation to grant unfettered ‘freedom of movement’ to Gaza residents. Gisha’s claims were quoted in the Goldstone report in order to accuse Israel of enacting policies ‘in the pursuance by Israel of political goals at the expense of the civilian population, in blatant violation of international humanitarian law.’ “
Further:
“Gisha’s highly publicized 2008 campaign condemning Israel for barring Palestinian students’ travel from Gaza to Israel and to the United States under the Fulbright program erased Israel’s legitimated security concerns. Indeed, most of these “students” were refused entry by the American government on security grounds.”

Head of Pakistan's Nuclear Program: Pakistan Has the Right to Use Nuclear Weapons Should the Need Arise

In a recent interview with investigative journalist Sameh 'Abdallah of the Egyptian government daily Al-Ahram, Lieutenant-General (Ret.) Khalid Ahmed Kidwai, the director-general since 1988 of Pakistan's Strategic Planning Division – the military body responsible for the production, security, and storage of Pakistan's nuclear weapons – said that Pakistan's nuclear arsenal is aimed chiefly at India, since, he claimed, Pakistan had no other enemies. He stressed that Pakistan has the right to use these weapons if the need arises, and to defend its sovereignty and its nuclear arsenal against attempts to dismantle or harm them. He added that Pakistan is entitled to share its knowledge and experience in the nuclear field with other countries, such as Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, under the supervision of the IAEA, thus preventing Pakistan's isolation.

FBI Captured Muslim Brotherhood’s Strategic Plan

Part 14 of a serialization of Shariah – The Threat to America, the report of Team B II of the Center for Security Policy.
Here, we look at the contents of the secret Muslim Brotherhood strategic plan for North America, which the FBI uncovered in 2004. The plan explains how the Ikhwan seeks to extend shariah into the United States and Canada.
‘An Explanatory Memorandum’
The Muslim Brotherhood’s strategic plan for North America was a closely-held secret until the FBI discovered it during a 2004 raid of a house in Annandale, Virginia. Agents discovered a secret basement containing internal Ikhwan documents, including the strategic plan titled, “An Explanatory Memorandum: On the General Strategic Goal for the Group.”
The strategic plan was written by a member of the Board of Directors for the Muslim Brotherhood in North America and senior Hamas leader named Mohammed Akram, and was approved by the Brotherhood’s Shura Council and Organizational Conference in 1987.
The plan establishes the mission of the Muslim Brother in North America in this following passage:
“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The Ikhwan must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”
In other words, the Ikhwan’s strategy for destroying the United States is to get us, specifically our leadership, to do the bidding of the MB for them. The Muslim Brotherhood intends to conduct Civilization Jihad by co-opting our leadership into believing a counterfactual understanding of Islam and the nature of the Muslim Brotherhood, thereby coercing these leaders to enforce the MB narrative on their subordinates.
jihad
At the ground level, this means that when police officers, federal agents, military personnel, or any other Americans who have sworn an oath to protect and defend the Constitution challenge their leadership with facts, the latter is faced with a hard choice: admit a lack of understanding of the threat and that he or she has been duped, or the leader must suppress the facts and his subordinates in the interest of protecting his or her professional reputation.
Extensive anecdotal evidence obtained from law enforcement professionals, federal agents, and military service members suggests that there is considerable suppression of the facts about shariah and efforts by the Muslim Brotherhood and its allies to bring it to America. This behavior frequently impedes ongoing investigations and countervailing efforts.
For instance, police officers in a number of communities around the country have been pushed out of their Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF) or counterterrorism positions by their chiefs or deputy chiefs for factually articulating that certain MB operatives working with their police leadership are, in fact, hostile to the United States and the police department in question. A similar phenomenon has also been evidenced within the FBI, the Department of Homeland Security and other federal, as well as state and local, entities. That is what is meant by “‘sabotaging’ Western Civilization by ‘their hands.”’
The Muslim Brotherhood’s ‘Phased Plan’
We know from, among other things, the Elbarasse trove of MB documents, that the goal of destroying Western Civilization from within is to be achieved by the Brotherhood in accordance with a “phased plan.”
The plan is a stepped process modeled directly after Sayyid Qutb’s Milestones and the shariah doctrine of progressive revelation. One such document is an undated paper entitled, “Phases of the World Underground Movement Plan.” It specifies the five phases of the Muslim Brotherhood Movement in North America.
They are described, together with comments about the Ikhwan’s progress in realizing each goal as follows:
“Phase One: Phase of discreet and secret establishment of leadership.
“Phase Two: Phase of gradual appearance on the public scene and exercising and utilizing various public activities (It greatly succeeded in implementing this stage). It also succeeded in achieving a great deal of its important goals, such as infiltrating various sectors of the Government. Gaining religious institutions and embracing senior scholars. Gaining public support and sympathy. Establishing a shadow government (secret) within the Government.
“Phase Three: Escalation phase, prior to conflict and confrontation with the rulers, through utilizing mass media. Currently in progress.
“Phase Four: Open public confrontation with the Government through exercising the political pressure approach. It is aggressively implementing the above-mentioned approach. Training on the use of weapons domestically and overseas in anticipation of zero-hour. It has noticeable activities in this regard.
“Phase Five: Seizing power to establish their Islamic Nation under which all parties and Islamic groups are united.”
This document offers a chilling operational insight into the mindset, planning, and vision of the Islamic movement in North America.
The Implementation of Shariah by the Muslim Brotherhood
The Elbarasse archives and close observation of the Brotherhood’s operations reveal the following as the most important of the techniques employed by the Ikhwan in America to achieve the seditious goals of its civilization jihad:
• Expanding the Muslim presence by birth rate, immigration, and refusal to assimilate;
• Occupying and expanding domination of physical spaces;
• Ensuring the “Muslim Community” knows and follows MB doctrine;
• Controlling the language we use in describing the enemy;
• Ensuring we do not study their doctrine (shariah);
• Co-opting key leadership;
• Forcing compliance with shariah at local levels;
• Fighting all counterterrorism efforts;
• Subverting religious organizations;
• Employing lawfare – the offensive use of lawsuits and threats of lawsuits;
• Claiming victimization / demanding accommodations;
• Condemning “slander” against Islam;
• Subverting the U.S. education system, in particular, infiltrating and dominating U.S. Middle East studies programs;
• Demanding the right to practice shariah in segregated Muslim enclaves;
• Demanding recognition of shariah in non-Muslim spheres;
• Confronting and denouncing Western society, laws, and traditions; and
• Demanding that shariah replace Western law. Note that many of the foregoing techniques entail, in one way or another, influencing and neutralizing the American government at all levels.
The next section, Part 15, is a case study of Muslim Brotherhood penetration of the United States government.

the victims of the Gay Left are the Gay Left

Instead, Henry and Josh are fighting to save their marriage. Because of the so-called “Defense of Marriage Act” (DOMA), passed by Congress in 1996, the federal government does not honor same-sex couple’s marriages, which means that Henry – who was born in Venezuela and moved to the U.S. in 2002 – may soon face deportation. If Henry and Josh were not a same-sex couple, Josh would easily be able to sponsor Henry for a visa or citizenship.
I'd support efforts to protect them if it protected me. sadly same sex marriage discriminates against the sacrifices and burdens that straight men make.  When will straight men be recognized by the Gay community for their contribution and efforts in marriage?  It isn't easy and to strip their exclusive identity away shows how little the progressives respect them.  I'd be very happy to support legislature that would protect Gays, but they will not be protected by legislation that is the equivalent to "don't ask don't tell". Pretending everyone is the same will not help gay people. Government contracts should reflect the truth of the relationship. If possible childbirth happens outside of the contract then that needs to be transparent for the very same reason these guys should be allowed to be together.  If the contract is not transparent then you can not create exclusive means to adopt for Gay couples.  When you create dishonest contracts in the long run the people who you mean to help, you hurt. We have already seen that happen with DADT legislation under Bill Clinton. The first part of respecting difference is in respecting difference. Sadly the Gay Community that pushes unconstitutional arguments does not respect difference and it is these men who pay the price for their arrogance.

Saudi Prince Backs Moving Planned NYC Mosque

Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal whose $10 million donation for 9/11 disaster relief was turned down by New York mayor Rudy Giuliani after the prince suggested the United States "must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack," and "re-examine its policies in the Middle East, and who is known for more than generous donations to families of Palestinian terrorists whom he calls martyrs, decided to side with those who oppose to building a mosque near Ground Zero.
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) -- A Saudi prince who has aided the imam spearheading a proposed Islamic center near New York's ground zero is appealing for another site not associated with the "wound" of the Sept. 11 attacks, a report said Thursday.
In interview excerpts published by the Dubai-based Arabian Business magazine, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal was quoted as saying that moving the planned mosque and other facilities would respect the memory of those killed in the 2001 attacks and allow American Muslims to choose a more suitable location.
The comments are reportedly the prince's first public views on the dispute, which has stirred street protests and fiery debates between religious and political leaders over America's freedom of worship versus the lingering anger over the 9/11 attacks.
Prince Alwaleed's Kingdom Foundation has contributed to the group run by New York's Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, but said he has given no funds to the planned center.
Prince Alwaleed urged the backers of the proposed Islamic center not to "agitate the wound by saying, 'We need to put the mosque next to the 9/11 site."'
"Those people behind the mosque have to respect, have to appreciate and have to defer to the people of New York," the prince was quoted as saying by the magazine, which said the full interview will be published Sunday. "The wound is still there. Just because the wound is healing you can't say, 'Let's just go back to where we were pre-9/11."'

Dante and Virgil in Hell by William-Adolphe Bouguereau :
If you thought any issue mattered as much as a person's ego on the left... surprise!   Abortion isn't as important as a Hillary Clinton supporter's burnt ego. These queers are out for revenge. Kind of sad actually that they can't conclude that Hillary was the same Antisemitic shit.... but if he is really going to sabotage from within then I'm going to make popcorn and watch.

When Obama and the DNC attacked Hillary and her supporters, they permanently alienated tens of millions of us from the party. I know for a fact I am not the only guy with a picture like this on his wall who is working every day to bring down the Obama White House and Democrat Party. Not for Hillary, though I love the woman, but for America...because I love this country even more.

I’m still registered as a Democrat here in Chicago (because the Cocktail Party GOP establishment so disgusts me I can’t will myself to party-ID Republican, and there’s no Independent option here in Illinois) but I can’t imagine ever voting for another Democrat again, as long as I live. To Hell with Democrats. This was solidified for me on Christmas Eve of last year, when Democrats rushed Obamacare through the Senate in the dead of night, through various secret channels, and every single Democrat voted for its passage (even supposed moderates like Evan Bayh in Indiana, who quickly realized his vote would cost him re-election…so the coward retired rather then face angry voters over what he did). I just don’t believe Democrats should be given elected office by voters because they cannot be trusted to even read bills before they vote on them, not even when said bills seek to permanently alter the entire American economy. This is reckless and reprehensible to the point of treason. I was a Democrat for 32 years before the heavy-handed push for Obama alienated me from the party…and I borrow what Hillary Clinton said about Republicans once, back when she was a Goldwater Girl, and will paraphrase by saying that I didn’t leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me. After it beat me to a pulp, called me a racist, berated and insulted me, and used Alinsky Rules to hit me with everything it had. Not just me, but all Hillary supporters. This is the part I don’t think you understand because I don’t know if you and your listeners paid much attention to what the Obama campaign and DNC did to malign and assault Hillary Clinton’s supporters during the 2008 campaign. None of this has been forgotten by any of us.
Stephanie Tubbs Jones, my former Congresswoman back home in Cleveland, was a black Hillary Clinton supporter to the very end — and she was called a “race-traitor”, an “Aunt Jane”, and all manner of worse names as she was bullied, berated, and verbally assaulted by the Obama team…because she was black and dared to stand with her friend Hillary Clinton, the person Tubbs Jones knew would make a better president than “The One”.  To her dying day in August of 2008, Tubbs Jones was threatened by the Obama campaign and told she’d be primaried in 2010 and kicked to the curb for being a “race-traitor”. She died of a brain aneurysm while driving her car, and Obama supporters filled Daily Kos, DemocratUnderground, and other George Soros-supported sites with lies about her drunk driving, doing drugs, and other slurs because even after she died these people wouldn’t stop hating her for daring to be an outspoken black woman who would never abandon Hillary for Obama.
This is similar to the grief that I’ve received here in Chicago for being a gay Hillary former Democrat in Boystown who never drank any Kool-Aid, never stopped speaking out against Obama, and who recently fully came out as a conservative — in the face of the same kind of Alinsky-grade, identity-based, “traitor” hectoring that Tubbs Jones got for being a black woman who didn’t kneel before the Obama altar.
the details of this letter are really sad.  I apologize for being crude, but what happened here happened to a lot of people.

Thousands of Jews are expected to visit Hebron this Shabbat to mark "Shabbat Hebron".
The Shabbat on which the parasha Chayei Sarah is read is known as "Shabbat Hebron" since it takes place in the city of Hebron. According to the story, Sarah lived 127 years and died in Hebron. Abraham asked the Hittites to intercede for him with Ephron son of Zohar as he wanted to buy from him the Cave of the Patriarchs (Me'arat HaMachpela in Hebrew) at full price in order to bury Sarah there. Abraham paid Ephron 400 shekels of silver for the land, and later buried Sarah in the cave. The site is considered the second holiest site to Jews after the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
It has become a tradition for Jews from Israel and around the world to spend Shabbat Chayei Sarah in Hebron. Everyone gathers together for prayer services in the Cave of the Patriarchs. Tours of the towns and projects in the area also take place.

Haredi School Expells 9 Girls For Possession Of Non-Kosher Cellphones

Ultra-Orthodox rabbis have forbidden the use of "non-kosher" cell phones, which allow SMS text messaging.
Motorola-qa1-cell-phone Nine students from the Beis Yaakov Yerushalayim (BJJ) Jerusalem High School were expelled because they own "non-kosher" cell phones.
I'm not Orthodox, but I wish I could ban text messaging with a few women I know. I am curious what caused the rabbis to ban them? phones like smart phones can ring on the sabbath so that could not be the issue. It probably directly relates to a very Jewish prohibition of gossip... which is about the lowest thing a person can do.
I support the Haredi on this one... though I'd question the Judaic reasoning. People do other things then gossip when texting.
though I could see why they would. young girls who are not talking are likely texting behind your back.
