VIDEO UN Speech PROSOR-PA bid:US Lawmakers threaten cutoff of aid


WASHINGTON  — A bipartisan group of senators is warning the Palestinians that they could lose U.S. financial aid and face the shutdown of the Washington office if they use upgraded U.N. status against Israel.
Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham and John Barrasso and Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bob Menendez said Thursday that they would push for an amendment to the defense bill on the Palestinians. The announcement came just hours before a likely vote in the United Nations recognizing the Palestinians as a state.


The legislation would cut off U.S. aid if the Palestinians use their newfound status to file charges against Israel in the International Criminal Court. Unwillingness to conduct meaningful negotiations with Israel would result in the closing of the Palestinian Liberation Organization's office in Washington.

On Thursday, Israel's ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor spoke to the General Assembly just moments before the UN voted to recognize Palestine as a state. There is one thing Israel doesn't lack and that is articulate and bold speakers as you will see in this clip. Prosor also said that there is only one route to everlasting Palestinian statehood, and that's through peaceful negotiations with Israel. Another excellent point made by Prosor: The UN is "not advancing peace, they're undermining peace." Prosor begins his strong speech by mentioning Israel's "eternal capital, Jerusalem." He also says that no decision today at the UN can break Israel. Check it out:

IDF says unrest in West Bank escalated during Gaza op; border police struggles to keep rioters in check

Published: 11.23.12, 09:01 / Israel News
The unrest that palgued the West Bank over the past several days went largely uncovered by the media due to the hostilities between Israel and Gaza, but Jewish residents say the disturbances were so widespread the security forces in the region had trouble handling them.




In an attempt to document the violence a settler recorded video footage of Palestinians throwing rocks towards Israeli cars stuck in traffic.



Border police officers whose own squad car was gridlocked stood by helplessly, saying there is nothing they could do. Drivers who turned to them for help were told they didn't have the right equipment to disperse the rioters.

Youths throw rockets at cars in West Bank

When the civilian behind the camera suggested the officers should fire warning shots in the air, they told him that "weapons are powerless against stones." A back up squad never arrived, witnesses said.



The clip, which was shot Wednesday near the village of Hizma, shows youths standing on the hills near a road and pelting rocks at the cars bellow.

Sources in the IDF acknowledged that over the past several days unusual agitation was seen in the West Bank, noting that the ceasefire agreement that was reached between Israel and Hamas might not put an end to the violent incidents.


"We're very concerned over the possibility that this might go on," a top Central Command official said. "These riots... date back to before Operation Pillar of Defense began.

"We will make every effort to restore the calm in the region," he added.


Benny Katzover, a leader in the settler community, said the video clip "exposes the many faces of the Israel Police and the consideration that the security forces take into account when they are required to act against Arabs."

"It so humiliating to stand in traffic and be hit by stones without the ability to take action."


A Border Guard spokesperson said in response that the cops in question were administrative officers who were not equipped to deal with such incidents.

"The officers called in combat squads who provided the appropriate operative response and dispersed the rioters," he said.

PA Arabs Celebrate as World Reacts to UN Decision


"World countries have given Bibi Netanyahu a slap in the face," says Meretz chairwoman Zehava Galon.

The United Nations’ approval of a resolution to recognize “Palestine” as a non-member observer state brought with it reactions both within Israel and from around the world.
AFP reported that Palestinian Authority Arabs fired in the air, whistled and embraced each other in both PA-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria as well as in Gaza after the General Assembly vote.
As the votes were cast, there was silence among the thousands gathered in Ramallah, which erupted with cheers of joy and chants when the 138-9 approval was announced.
In Bethlehem, fireworks were shot into the night sky, reported AFP, and churches rang their bells at midnight to mark the occasion.
In Israel, the result of the UN vote was welcomed by Meretz chairwoman Zehava Galon, who said that “world countries have given Bibi Netanyahu a slap in the face.”
“Now that the Palestinian state has been established it is time to establish the Israeli partner,” she said. “This is our opportunity to conduct negotiations with the Palestinians by diplomacy and using ambassadors that will bring an end to the conflict, not by generals and guns which only perpetuate it.”
Labor chairwoman Shelly Yechimovich said that the UN decision is "a bad outcome before which we heard a difficult speech,” referring to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s speech which fiercely attacked Israel.
"This is a unilateral decision that affects the only way that we should behave - sober and responsible negotiations," said Yechimovich, adding that Prime Minister Netanyahu and Foreign Minister Lieberman should ask themselves "how Israel was defeated and embarrassed on their watch."
Canada, which voted against the PA’s bid, also condemned the outcome of the vote.
Canada's Foreign Minister John Baird said that giving the PA non-member “undermines the core" of attempts to broker a Palestinian-Israeli peace deal.
"That approach can only result in the steady erosion and collapse of the very foundations of a process which -- while incomplete -- holds the only realistic chance to bring about two peaceful, prosperous states living side-by-side as neighbors," he said ahead of the vote.
French President Francois Hollande called for the resumption of negotiations between Israel and the PA "without conditions and as quickly as possible.”
"Direct dialogue is in effect the only way to find a definitive end to this conflict. France is ready to contribute to it, as a friend, both of Israel and of Palestine," he said. France had voted in favor of the resolution.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s Office responded to the passing of the resolution, saying that "This is a meaningless decision that will not change anything on the ground. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it clear that there will be no establishment of a Palestinian state without a settlement that ensures the security of Israel's citizens.
“He will not allow a base for Iranian terrorism to be established in Judea and Samaria, in addition to those that have [already] been established in Gaza and Lebanon,” said the statement. “The way to peace between Jerusalem and Ramallah is in direct negotiations, without preconditions, and not in one-sided UN decisions. By going to the UN, the Palestinians have violated the agreements with Israel and Israel will act accordingly."


VIDEO PLUS -UN Recognizes 'Palestine'


138 countries vote in favor of accepting 'Palestine' as non-member observer state. Ayalon: This is a historic defeat for Palestinians.

As expected, the United Nations passed a resolution on Thursday evening recognizing Palestine as a non-member observer state. This status has only been accorded to the Vatican until now.
138 countries voted in favor of the resolution, nine countries voted against it, and 41 countries abstained.
Shortly before the vote, Palestinian Authority (PA) Head Mahmoud Abbas addressed the United Nations. As he took the stage, Abbas launched his usual attack on Israel, accusing the Jewish State of attacking PA Arabs and carrying out ethnic cleansing.
As usual, Abbas did not condemn the rocket fire by Gaza terrorists on southern Israel.
"Palestine comes today to the General Assembly because it believes in peace and because its people, as proven in past days, are in desperate need of it,” he said, insisting that recognizing “Palestine” as a non-member observer state is “the last chance to save the two-state solution."
"We have heard and you too have heard specifically over the past months the incessant flood of Israeli threats in response to our peaceful, political and diplomatic endeavor for Palestine to acquire non-member observer state in the United Nations,” said Abbas. “And, you have surely witnessed how some of these threats have been carried out in a barbaric and horrific manner just days ago in the Gaza Strip.
“We have not heard one word from any Israeli official expressing any sincere concern to save the peace process. On the contrary, our people have witnessed, and continue to witness, an unprecedented intensification of military assaults, the blockade, settlement activities and ethnic cleansing, particularly in occupied east Jerusalem, and mass arrests, attacks by settlers and other practices by which this Israeli occupation is becoming synonymous with an apartheid system of colonial occupation, which institutionalizes the plague of racism and entrenches hatred and incitement."
Abbas claimed that "We did not come here seeking to delegitimize a state established years ago, and that is Israel; rather we came to affirm the legitimacy of the state that must now achieve its independence, and that is Palestine. We did not come here to add further complications to the peace process, which Israel's policies have thrown into the intensive care unit; rather we came to launch a final serious attempt to achieve peace. Our endeavor is not aimed at terminating what remains of the negotiations process, which has lost its objective and credibility, but rather aimed at trying to breathe new life into the negotiations and at setting a solid foundation for it based on the terms of reference of the relevant international resolutions in order for the negotiations to succeed.
"We will accept no less than the independence of the state of Palestine, with east Jerusalem as its capital, on all the Palestinian territory occupied in 1967, to live in peace and security alongside the state of Israel, and a solution for the refugee issue on the basis of resolution 194, as per the operative part of the Arab Peace Initiative,” he stressed.
“Every voice supporting our endeavor today,” said the PA Chairman, “is a most valuable voice of courage, and every state that grants support today to Palestine's request for non-member observer state status is affirming its principled and moral support for freedom and the rights of peoples and international law and peace.
"The General Assembly is called upon today to issue a birth certificate of the reality of the State of Palestine."
Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon said Thursday that "this is a day of historic defeat for Palestinians," and called Abbas a "diplomatic terrorist."




America Still Remains Land of Opportunity, WSJ’s -but Obama is Screwing it!

America is still a land of great opportunity, but the country faces a dilemma over whether the government will take from the rich to give to the poor or if the nation is one where anyone can get ahead, Steve Moore, senior economics writer for The Wall Street Journal told Newsmax TV’s Kathleen Walter in an exclusive interview.

“I looked at a lot of the data over the last 40 or 50 years and it’s still a very positive story that in America, just because you’re born rich doesn’t mean you’re going to be rich and just because you’re poor doesn’t mean you’re going to be poor,” Moore, author of “Who’s the Fairest of Them All?” told Walter.


Story continues below video.




And Moore disagrees with President Barack Obama, when he says people can’t get ahead anymore.

“So, that’s the good news story of this book,” he said. “Anybody can get ahead. And when Barack Obama says, ‘You know that doesn’t work anymore. People at the bottom can’t get ahead anymore.’ He’s dead wrong.”

Moore also believes there’s a divide between what’s real in the tax system and what Americans believe.

“Americans believe what the media’s been telling them for the last 30 years: the rich don’t pay any taxes, they get all of the loopholes and the people like Warren Buffett and Bill Gates and the Justin Biebers of the world are not paying their fair share,” said Moore. “And what I found just going through the official IRS data is exactly the opposite. We have a highly, highly progressive tax system.”

He noted that the richest one percent pay under 40 percent of the income tax, while the top 10 percent pay 67 percent and the bottom 50 percent only pay about two and a half percent.

Moore denies the rich are getting richer, while the poor get poorer, saying it’s only a myth.

“f you look over the last 35 years going back to the start of the Reagan administration, the middle class in this country has seen about a one third increase in their incomes when you include things like benefits,” Moore said. “The average middle class person today has a higher living standard than the average rich person did 50 years ago.”

Meanwhile, Moore says America needs to get serious about people getting out of the poverty cycle.

“I don’t think that’s an economic problem. It’s more of a kind of cultural problem,” he said. “Unfortunately, they don’t have a father in the home. Those kinds of things really create a strike or two. Another big strike against kids who are growing up in poorer households is the lousy government schools that we send them to.”

He said America shouldn’t strive to be a country of equal outcomes, but rather equal opportunities. This includes vouchers so poor children can go to any school they want despite opposition from Democrat-supporting teacher unions.

Moore believes the fairest tax system is the free market capitalist system.

“There is no other system that has created the most kind of opportunity — the most kind of increases in living standards and jobs — than the American free enterprise system,” he said.

Homemade rockets? Gaza gets US Money- Pays IRAN for Rockets to Fire at Israel

FAJR 5 used to deliberately Target Civilians


TEHRAN, Iran — Iran has supplied Hamas in Gaza with the technology to “quickly” produce longer-range missiles on their own without needing direct shipments, said a report Wednesday that quoted the head of Iran’s powerful Revolutionary Guard.
The comments by Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari offer some of the clearest insights on Iran’s weapons support for Hamas, whose Iranian-engineered Fajr-5 missiles have struck near Tel Aviv and Jerusalem during weeklong battles with Israel.
-Assosiated Press

HAMAS.......






The rest of the arsenal, the vast majority, is improvised. “The earliest Kassam [rockets] were made out of metal from stolen Israel Roadways signs, and powered by fertilizer,” said Avihai of the weapons behind the attacks that began in October 2001, a period during which gruesome suicide bombings were still Hamas’s primary weapon.
Yoram Cohen, the current head of the Shin Bet, argued in a 2009 paper that four developments brought about the rise of Hamas’s rocket arsenal: Israel pulled its troops out of the Philadelphi corridor; it withdrew its civilians from Gaza; it failed to smother Hezbollah’s rocket fire during 34 days of war in 2006; and, one year after that, Hamas beat Fatah in elections in Gaza, ousting it from power and seizing its military and intelligence assets and state resources.
The Fajr-5… which is 18 feet long, is cut into several parts on the western side of the border and reassembled in Gaza by experts
The most significant factor is the withdrawal of troops and citizens. After the gates of Gaza were shut in August 2005, Hamas was left with no readily available targets. “Once the civilians were pulled away, they started to increase their range and their efforts,” Avihai said, noting that rocket fire was the only feasible way for the group to keep “the resistance” alive and remind Israel of its existence.
One recent homemade development, which surprised Israeli intelligence experts with its range, is the M-75 rocket of the type that fell in open areas south of Jerusalem on Friday evening and Tuesday afternoon.
The M-75, named after Ibrahim Makadmeh, a Hamas terrorist who was assassinated in March 2003 — he was the first to argue in favor of pitting Israel against the Palestinian Authority by unleashing waves of suicide attacks — is a prime example of both the ingenuity of Hamas and the cruel manner in which terror organizations use meager tools for maximal impact. It is, in essence, a 122-mm. rocket that, sources say, Hamas severed near the tail, lengthened, stuffed with additional gunpowder, and fixed with new tail wings.
The flight path of the improvised rockets is less predictable, and the warhead is often reduced in size, which makes it less lethal, but the goal is accomplished, said Avihai: “To set off an air-raid siren and spread panic.”

Montreal Host Suspended Over Anti-Semitic Remarks


Montreal radio talk show host Jacques Fabi suspended for one month for not being tough enough with an anti-Semitic caller.

Montreal late-night radio talk show host Jacques Fabi has been suspended for one month without pay for not being tough enough with an anti-Semitic caller, CBC Newsreported on Monday.
In a statement, senior vice president Richard Lachance of COGECO Diffusion, which owns the station, 98.5FM, said Fabi regrets the incident.
"COGECO Diffusion and 98.5 FM do not endorse in any way these comments and deplore, withoutreservation, the on-air host's lack of judgment in this case," said Lachance.
A woman, who called herself Maria, phoned into Fabi's show last week.
He allowed her to continue speaking after she called the Holocaust a beautiful thing, reported CBC.
Fabi did not interrupt the woman, but continued the conversation and sympathized with her statements.
"I'd never dare say such a thing," he said, adding, "though you probably have the right."
Fabi said that there are consequences for people who speak negatively about Jewish people, especially in Montreal where there is such a significant Jewish population.
"If you asked me if the Jewish population can sometimes be annoying, I would say yes," he said.
In total, the conversation lasted for more than four minutes.
B'nai Brith Canada is demanding an on-air apology from Fabi. CBC reported that the organization sent a formal letter to the radio station complaining about the comments. B'nai Brith also sent complaints to the CRTC and the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.
Steven Slimovitch, a lawyer for B'nai Brith Canada, said his inbox was flooded with emails from Jewish Canadians following the broadcast.
"She basically says that Hitler should have finished what he started," Slimovitch said. "There's no place for comments like that on a radio station. These are unacceptable comments and they beg a formal apology on the air.”
Last week, the office of a political-science professor and outspoken defender of Israel in Montreal was vandalized with anti-Semitic slogans. The words “Heil Israel”, written in French, were found scrawled on the professor’s office door at the Université du Québec à Montréal.
Greece's neo-Nazi Golden Dawn party recently set up an office in Montreal, in an effort to reach out to Greek citizens living abroad and widen its sphere of influence.
The party, which has become notorious for its blatant anti-Semitic and xenophobic rhetoric, openly displays copies of “Mein Kampf,” as well as other works on Greek racial superiority at party headquarters.
Party leader Nikos Michaloliakos has denied that ovens and gas chambers were used in Nazi concentration camps exterminate Jews during the Holocaust.
The party campaigned under the slogan “So we can rid the land of filth” and holds frequent rallies, chanting “Foreigners out of Greece!”

Israel and USA Military Conclusion of Austere Challenge 12






US and IDF soldiers together near an aerial defense vehicle.
The exercise concluded yesterday, following a two-day live fire exercise, which was deemed a success by military observers from both USEUCOM and the IDF.
The IDF Air Defense Forces Commander, BG Shachar Shochat, said that “the success of the exercise, which drilled joint mechanisms and advanced technology, is a testament to the high level of cooperation between the two militaries”.
“Austere Challenge 12 was tremendously successful on several levels.” said U.S. Air Force Lt. Gen. Craig Franklin, Third Air Force commander and commander of Joint Defense Forces-Israel during AC12. “We made great strides in improving our tactics and our command and control processes. Most importantly though, we reinforced our already strong US-IDF relationships. From our most senior commanders to most junior enlisted troops, we proved once again that there is clearly no substitute for training side by side with our Israeli partners.”


Lt Gen Craig Franklin and Brig. Gen. Shahar Shohat at an official press conference.
Franklin said that if the U.S. is ever called upon to join the IDF in the defense of Israel, U.S. forces are now even better prepared to do so.
The exercise was not in response to any current specific tensions in the region. Rather, AC12 prepared forces for a variety of threats on multiple fronts for which Israel must prepare.

How Obama’s FEMA Criminally Botched the Hurricane Recovery Effort



Obama’s win came in part because the media and a Springsteen-loving governor portrayed him as dedicated to relief for those hit by Hurricane Sandy. The reality however is that Obama made some routine photo op stops. FEMA, along with the Red Cross, failed abysmally at Hurricane Sandy relief efforts, and that story wasn’t told before the election because the people in a position to tell it had no power and the media wanted Obama to win. Afterward the story is slowly trickling out.
“I asked, ‘Why haven’t you been sent out?’” he says. “Then he just lays the story on me, tells me about all the personnel they have out there, more than 100 ambulances, two paramedics per ambulance, everybody waiting for marching orders.”
Horrified, the logistical worker offered to help transport them to a place where they could be useful.
“He said they couldn’t do it because FEMA had them all under contract, and they couldn’t go out without FEMA’s say-so.
Fair warning. This comes from the Village Voice and it’s chock full of leftist agitprop, racefail and promotion for Occupy Sandy, but the FEMA material is quite real. And some of it is incredibly scandalous. There are things here that would have gotten Bush lynched in the press if they had happened during Katrina.
FEMA and the Red Cross was next to invisible. Weeks after the storm, many New Yorkers in storm-damaged neighborhoods had yet to see any sort of institutional relief at all.
Nine days after Sandy, the night the nor’easter hits New York, the Rockaways are quiet. Snow blankets the streets, and visibility is at a minimum.
FEMA has shuttered its emergency-response stations throughout the city and withdrawn its disaster-recovery personnel, citing, to the disbelief of stranded residents, inclement weather.
Less than a mile away from the Rockaways as the crow flies, just across the Marine Parkway Bridge, the institutional disaster responders are massing at Floyd Bennett Field. FEMA and the National Guard have set up a headquarters at the former airfield, and upwards of 150 ambulances and EMT crews are gathered from across the country.

In the first rush after the storm, these emergency medical responders were frantically busy with the evacuation of NYU Langone and Bellevue, transporting patients out of the damaged hospitals to safer facilities.
But after that burst of activity, the orders suddenly stopped coming. EMT crews idled for days on end, waiting for direction, growing increasingly exasperated as the hours and days ticked by.
A private recovery worker providing transport and logistical support to the first responders told the Voice about receiving a request for blankets and sleeping bags needed at Floyd Bennett Field. He was confused—wasn’t that the FEMA headquarters? Shouldn’t goods like that be going out to the city?
“I called my contact back for clarification,” the logistics worker tells the Voice. “He says to me: ‘We’re firefighters and EMTs and nurses. We’ve been here for days, and they haven’t let us off the compound, they haven’t given us marching orders, they haven’t even given us our equipment. We’ve been sleeping on plastic chairs since we got here.’”
Through his work with other relief operations, the logistics worker knew there was acute need just down the road for medical checks, prescriptions, and other work for which the medical workers would be perfectly suited.
“I asked, ‘Why haven’t you been sent out?’” he says. “Then he just lays the story on me, tells me about all the personnel they have out there, more than 100 ambulances, two paramedics per ambulance, everybody waiting for marching orders.”
Horrified, the logistical worker offered to help transport them to a place where they could be useful.
“He said they couldn’t do it because FEMA had them all under contract, and they couldn’t go out without FEMA’s say-so. They were so frustrated. They came all this way, and now they’re not going anywhere, and there’s something in their contract telling them they can’t even throw up their arms and say ‘Fuck it’ and go into the city and do good.”
Trying to get an official explanation for the idle EMTs only reveals further interagency confusion. A FEMA spokesperson told the Voice the federal agency was only at Floyd Bennett Field in a support capacity, and EMTs were under the direction of the state and city offices of emergency management. The city OEM didn’t return requests for comment. A spokesperson for the state OEM said the EMTs had federal contracts and directed inquiries back to FEMA.
While FEMA proved useless, individual volunteers were the ones who made all the difference. Including ragtag groups of unlikely people.
This recovery station has been around, in one form or another, since the day after Sandy hit New Dorp, more than a week before the massive FEMA camp was erected on Miller Field.
It was set up by members of the Hallowed Sons, a Bay Ridge motorcycle club that crossed the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge that first night to check on the family of one of the club members and never left.
In a far corner of the parking lot this Sunday, Bobby Hansen is lying on his back underneath his 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster, working on changing a tire wrecked after he drove his bike through floodwaters and over building debris. Hansen is wearing a week’s worth of white stubble, glasses, and a soiled gray waffle tee and black jeans, with a seven-inch knife sheathed on his belt. Speaking in a slurred staccato, Hansen recalls the scene when the club first arrived.
“When we first rode in, we were like, ‘Holy shit!’” he says. “Everything was flooded. There was debris everywhere.”
By Tuesday morning, the waters had receded, and the Hallowed Sons had set up camp in the Oceanside Park, serving food and sending teams out with residents to their small, single-family homes to remove wreckage and junk out of the ruined basements and first floors. On a bedsheet they spray-painted the words “Hallowed Sons MC, Just Ask for Help.” Aside from the shell-shocked residents, they were the only people on the scene.
Some of the homes in New Dorp were completely destroyed in the storm surge; others are still standing but ruined. The Hallowed Sons kept the food coming and worked with residents to canvass the neighborhood, checking on the homebound, assessing property damage, finding out what people needed and getting it to them.
In the process, the Hallowed Sons became the de facto recovery operation in New Dorp. With no one else on the ground, volunteers from unaffected parts of Staten Island, Manhattan, and as far away as Ohio made their way to New Dorp and attached themselves to the motorcycle club.
Hansen and the other Hallowed Sons brought a biker’s swagger and a certain lawless initiative to their relief work.
After their recovery station’s food stocks were raided one night during the first week (“Mexicans,” Hansen opines), the gang suspended a warning hangman’s noose over their operation and posted Hansen, complete with his menacing Crocodile Dundee knife, to stand guard overnight next to an illegal bonfire.
When the nor’easter battered the neighborhood all over again 10 days after Sandy, residents found themselves trapped, without means of evacuation. Hansen, a 15-year veteran of the MTA, found a public bus idling on high ground.
“I told the driver, ‘You want to be fucking useful? There are people down there who need to get out of here,’” Hansen says. “I made him go down and get people to a safe place.”
At this point if we had a government run by motorcycle gangs it would be an improvement. Right now we’re ruled by wannabe feudal lords who are not only tyrannical, but also completely inept at everything except rigging elections.

1993 WTC Attack FLORIDA IMAN Connection found


Imam’s Terrorist Ties Exposed by Local News Station

Abu Taubah
CORRUPTION CHRONICLES
While the Obama Justice Department tours the nation condemning unfounded discrimination against Muslims at their place of worship, a local Florida news station uncovers an imam’s ties to a blind sheik behind the first World Trade Center bombing in the early 90s.
Not surprisingly, the administration’s campaign to combat mosque intolerance is being heavily promoted while the shocking imam terrorist story gets swept under the rug. We only know about it because a central Florida reporter took the time to dig around and uncover the Orlando-area imam’s disturbing ties to an extremist group behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
The imam’s real name is Marcus Robertson but he goes by Abu Taubah and he preaches the Quran at the Masjid Al-Ihsaan Mosque in East Orange County. He also has an extensive criminal record, according to the news report. Imam Tubah is actually a convicted felon who has murdered people, attempted assassinations, taken hostages and tried to kill police officers. Last year, on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he planned an attack on U.S. military personnel overseas, according to prosecutors.
Authorities say Imam Taubah has deep ties to Islamic terrorists and that he was a bodyguard to Omar Abdel Rahman, the blink sheik behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The Egyptian-born militant Islamist was convicted after the ’93 attack of plotting to bomb several New York City landmarks and is currently in prison.
Hundreds of miles away in Miami last year, the feds raided a mosque with terrorist ties albeit under Obama’s new rules of engagement to assure cultural sensitivity towards Islam. A Pakistani imam named Hafiz Muhammed Sher Ali Khan and his relatives were charged with providing financial and material support to the Pakistani Taliban, which is associated with Al-Qaeda and has claimed responsibility for numerous attacks against American interests. Khan founded an Islamic school that supports the Taliban’s jihad while living in Pakistan and continued controlling and funding it as an imam in Miami, according to the federal indictment.
Considering these cases and others around the U.S., is it any wonder why some Americans may seem suspicious that a number of new mosques are popping up all over the country? The Obama Administration claims they are suffering unwarranted intolerance from what one top Department of Justice (DOJ) official calls “islamophobes.” In fact, a day after the Orlando terrorist imam story broke, the assistant attorney general in charge of the DOJ’s bloated civil rights division damned Muslim prejudice at the opening of a new mosque in Tennessee.
Addressing worshipers at the grand opening of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said, “without question we are seeing real challenges to the civil rights of Muslim Americans,” especially in mosques. He referred to the offenders as “islamophobes” and assured that his agency is taking action, investigating over 800 incidents involving threats targeting Arabs, Muslims, Sikhs and south Asians. The DOJ is also working with state and local prosecutors in “numerous non-federal criminal prosecutions,” Perez said.

Actually these are 10 Facts Why Islam on a boarder or growing inside a democracy Prevents PEACE


Op-Ed: Against the Ceasefire: 10 Reasons Why It Won't Work


Demonstrable and empirically verifiable truths about Israel’s enemies.


Israeli prime ministers are pathologically concerned about favorable Public Relations in the international media.

Thus, in Israel’s current war breaks with Hamas entrenched in Gaza—abandoned seven years ago for the sake of “peace”—Israeli prime ministers readily yield to ceasefires.

These peace-loving prime ministers ignore or fail to appreciate a basic principle of international politics, namely, that no dictatorship can dwell in genuine peace with a democracy on its borders. All the more so, when the dictatorship is rooted in Arab-Islamic culture, on the one hand, and when the democracy is or appears to be Jewish, on the other.

To clarify this issue, I will enumerate ten contradictions between democracy and Arab-Islamic culture, and I invite opinion makers and decisions makers to open their minds to some demonstrable and empirically verifiable truths about Israel’s enemies.

1. Whereas, freedom, including freedom of speech, is one of the two cardinal principles of democracy, Arab-Islamic culture is strictly authoritarian, which is why its media is state-controlled.
2. Unlike democracy, whose other cardinal principle is equality, Arab-Islamic culture is strictly hierarchical. Top-down leadership is a fundamental principle of Islamic theology. Authority runs down from Allah to Muhammad and from Muhammad to the imam, the ruler of the regime.
3. Democracy is based on the primacy of consent or persuasion. This adorns democratic societies with a certain easy-goingness and civility. Not only are past grievances readily swept aside, but political opponents can be friends despite their differences. Differences are resolved by mutual concessions, and agreements are usually lasting. In contrast, Arab-Islamic culture is based on the primacy of coercion. Agreements between rival factions do not really terminate animosities, which is why such agreements are so short-lived.
4. Because democracy is based on the primacy of consent, the pursuit of peace is the norm of democratic states. In contrast, because Arab-Islamic culture is based on the primacy of coercion, the foreign policy norm of Arab-Islamic states is intimidation and conquest. The primary reason Muslim violence will be found throughout the world is simply this: Jihad(holy war) is a basic principle of Islamic theology palpably evident in Islamic scriptures on which Muslims are weaned. It’s the theology, stupid—which Israeli and American peace merchants like to ignore.
5. Whereas democracy is based on the primacy of the individual, Arab-Islamic culture is based on the primacy of the group—be it the village or the extended family. The individual Muslim has no identity outside the group; it is to the group that he owes all his loyalty. This is one reason why internecine conflict has been endemic among Muslims since the time of Muhammad—the role model of Shiite and Sunni Muslims.
6. Whereas democracy is regarded as a process by which various individuals and groups pursue their private interests and diverse “lifestyles,” Arab-Islamic culture binds everyone to the set of substantive values prescribed in the Quran and in Islamic law (the Sharia).
7. Whereas contemporary or normless—as opposed to Jeffersonian or normative democracy—is inclined toward moral relativism, Islam is based on absolutism.
8. Whereas democratic societies are preoccupied with the present (the Now), Arab-Islamic culture exists under the aspect of Eternity. Islamic mentality is dominated by the past, which is why revenge for past injuries is a dominant motif of the Islamic world. And given their group loyalty, Muslims are religiously bound to wreak vengeance against those who have slighted the honor of any Muslim, especially Muhammad.
9. The publicity and openness found in democracy stands in striking contrast to the state censorship and veiled or secretive character of Arab-Islam regimes.
10. Whereas contemporary democracy is predominantly secular, Arab-Islamic culture is predominantly religious. Even Arab leaders who are not devout Muslims identify with the basic goals of Islam. The radical separation of religion and politics found in democracy is foreign to Islamic regimes.

For these reasons alone, genuine and abiding peace between Israel and its Arab-Islamic neighbors is not possible. Those who think otherwise live in denial, or in Alice-in-Wonderland. Israel’s ruling elites need a crash course on statecraft, with emphasis on Machiavelli,The Prince.

Unfortunately, this is much more than an intellectual problem. Unlike Muslim leaders, Israeli prime ministers are not warriors; they abhor bloodshed. Moreover, they seem more concerned about a favorable press—especially in the United States—than about victory. Fear of an “incident” exploited by Arabs or some Israel-bashing newspaper like the New York Times, is their constant companion. And Jewish soldiers are sacrificed on the altar of PR.
