    Yasser Arafat's official Web site posted pictures Monday that it said showed the late Palestinian leader's modest bedroom, offering a glimpse into the way he lived under Israeli siege during the final two years of his life. The spartan room included a single bed, a lamp and a narrow closet containing Arafat's iconic wardrobe: five military-style suits and four checkered black-and-white Palestinian scarfs.

    Whenever I point out the fact that Hillary Clinton was the first person on any White House staff EVER to publicly call for the establishment of a Palestinian state, or that famous hugging incident with Mrs Arafat my more liberal friends point out that the Junior Senator from NY had a spotless record on Israel since she was elected to the Senate. Well of course she did, she is the senator from New-freaking-York. A major part of but as Secretary of State she no longer has to worry about the Jewish vote, so why is everyone surprirsed that she has...
  • Made in Israel VS Made in "Palestine"

    Made in Israel VS Made in "Palestine"     Made in Israel - CREATIVITY IN ISRAEL   Let's see, what we got in the Israel "Palestine' region.   You are probably aware of some of Israel's great achievement, not only in great efforts of seeking to minimize civilian casualties - inventing low range precision missiles targeting terrorists only, but in agriculture for example, where many countries around the world come to see how this young re-established democracy has managed to advance. Or in medical fields, in which with Israelis' kindness and compassion many poor/less advantaged foreigners (including Arabs, Muslims) enjoy free treatment....

    If you listen to the liberal version of American History, you will learn that by befriending the wold Bill Clinton made the world safer, and by acting unilaterally George Bush made the world more dangerous. Of course I have never been one to suggest that we listen to the liberal version of anything. Allow me to suggest that when it comes right down to it, the difference between the past two US Presidents comes down to two events, almost ten years apart, September 13, 1993 and March 20,2003

    ELCA News Service ^ | 15 January AD 2008 | John Brooks
    RAMALLAH, West Bank (ELCA) -- Israel is targeting the small Palestinian Christian community here, threatening a key connection to the West and worrying Christian leaders, said Dr. Rafiq Husseini, chief of staff to the president, Palestinian National Authority (PNA). He made the comment Jan. 13 in a meeting here with seven North American Lutheran bishops. The bishops were part of a group of 44 bishops representing the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC), who visited the West Bank and Israel Jan. 6-13. The bishops met with religious, political and community leaders, and...

    Does America need a terrorist financier to secure its “freedom”? Sami al-Arian thinks so. His National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom poses as a watchdog for the Constitution, but he has focused his lobbying efforts on repealing anti-terrorist legislation. While Sami al-Arian himself has been arrested for being a prime financier for Palestinian Islamic Jihad (and likely one of its three founders), his political movement continues to threaten homeland security. Al-Arian founded the National Coalition to Protect Political Freedom (NCPPF) in 1997 as a reaction to the Anti-Terrorism Act of 1996. The coalition’s stated goal “is to help change the...

    Boycott The New York Times ^ | December 15, 2008 | Don Feder
    An article in yesterday’s New York Times by Public Editor Clark Hoyt, “Separating the Terror and the Terrorists,” is a nauseating example of the paper’s moral relativism applied to the war on terrorism. Hoyt tries to rationalize The Times’ reluctance to apply the “terrorist” label to people who take hostages, blow up bystanders and shoot 5-year-old girls in their beds. Hoyt admits “The Times is sparing in its use of ‘terrorist’” when reporting on Palestinian atrocities. In an effort to be even-handed, the paper has decided to call the murder of Jews inside the 1948 boundaries of Israel “terrorist,” but...

    ( According to a report on Middle East Newsline, President-elect Barack Obama has dispatched his "senior foreign policy adviser", Robert Malley to Egypt and Syria to outline Obama's policy on the Middle East. Malley reportedly relayed a promise from Obama that the United States would seek to enhance relations with Cairo and reconcile differences with Damascus. "The tenor of the messages was that the Obama administration would take into greater account Egyptian and Syrian interests," an aide to Malley was quoted as saying. The aide said Obama plans to launch a U.S. diplomatic initiative toward Syria. Malley met both Egyptian...

    ( Rahm Emanuel, President-elect Barack Obama's new Jewish Chief of Staff, was active in the Oslo negotiations and choreographed the Rabin-Arafat handshake at the White House. "It was an emotional moment for him," according to public relations consultant Richard Mintz, who worked with Emanuel. "He would like nothing more than to participate in another peace agreement signing." Israeli media Thursday morning celebrated the appointment of Emanuel, a Chicago, Illinois Jewish Congressman who was born to former Israelis. His father was a member of the Jewish resistance Irgun movement during the British mandate and the Emanuels named him after an Irgun...

    The Kenya family of US Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has halted all media engagements until after the US presidential election on November 4. The move has been taken to give Obama's paternal grandmother, Mama Sarah Onyango Obama a break, according to a family member Mr Said Obama. In the recent past, a battery of local and international journalists have been visiting the home on a daily basis to seek interviews from the 85-year old granny. But Mr Said Obama said the family would open up to the media on November 5, a day after the elections. And on Wednesday,...

    We’re utterly fascinated by this. In 2004, we don’t remember hearing about anyone scared Kerry was going to take their guns away - and we worked Pennsylvania for Kerry (Pittsburgh area). There were a lot of gun shops and firing ranges there, and we never heard anything about people stocking up on guns because they were scared Kerry was going to try to take them away. Obama is perceived as more liberal than Kerry, and in fact the most liberal Democrat that’s run for president in as long as anyone can remember. Biden as VP makes this the most liberal...

    Rashid Khalidi, the Columbia University professor whose friendship with Sen. Barack Obama is raising questions, says he was never a spokesman for the PLO, but his strong PLO leanings were evident at a time when Yasser Arafat’s group was mounting terror attacks in Israel and causing mayhem in Lebanon. And while Khalidi may not have been speaking on behalf of the PLO, during interviews he occasionally used the word “we” when speaking of the organization. In one 1981 interview, Khalidi referred to the exiled PLO’s growing standing among Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, saying “we have built up...

    Barney Frank will not soon be named secretary of defense or, insha'Allah, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. So there's really no reason to fear that his recent call to cut defense spending by 25% is a harbinger of what to expect in an Obama administration. Then again, maybe there is. When it comes to defense, there are two Barack Obamas in this race. There is the candidate who insists, as he did last year in an article in Foreign Affairs, that "a strong military is, more than anything, necessary to sustain peace"; pledges to increase the size of...

    Obama: Constitution is 'Deeply Flawed' Monday, October 27, 2008 8:20 PM By: David A. Patten Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama described the U.S. Constitution as having “deep flaws” during a September 2001 Chicago public radio program, adding that the country’s Founding Fathers had “an enormous blind spot” when they wrote it. Obama also remarked that the Constitution “reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day.” Obama’s statements came during a panel discussion that aired on Chicago’s WBEZ-FM on Sept. 6, 2001, titled “Slavery and the Constitution.” ...

    Back in 2001, Barack Obama gave an interview to a Chicago public radio station in which he talked about using the Supreme Court, the most undemocratic of the three branches of government (nonelected, lifetime terms), to "spread the wealth." Some rough excerpts: If you look at the victories and failures of the civil rights movement and its litigation strategy in the court, I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at a lunch counter and order, and...

    The Protesters waving signs along College Avenue before Barrack Obama speak had more in common than just their opposition of the senator. Nearly half of them were foreign born. Countries like Romania, Holland, Germany and the Netherlands were represented in the group who said Obama will bring a socialist agenda that mirrors the agenda of European countries. Martin Boonstoppel, 47, and Juul Dijkstra, both of the Netherlands, said they wanted to protest what they saw as an unfair tax policy supported by Obama. "I lived under socialism and we were taxed huge amounts and it was going to people who...
