    The bloody BBC's hands in murdering  the innocent in Israel   Feb. 4, 2008   What do you know, after weeks of mounting vicious anti Israel campaign, buying all Islamofascist Hamas' tactics of causing self harm to their population: targeting Israeli children in Sderot to draw an Israeli anti terror operation in order to have the "victim-hood" being picked up.   The BBC as always (mainly since 1987), is on the front champions in this crime, not just ignoring the cynical game Islamic terrorists play (Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah), but far worse, it actually plays a mouthpiece for them by...

    Is the U.S. Failing in Afghanistan? It was malice in wonderland at the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Thursday as Bush Administration envoys insisted things are getting better in Afghanistan, while angry lawmakers from both parties cited facts and figures showing just the opposite. Even the senior Republican on the panel, Senator Richard Lugar, found the Administration's claims wanting. "I'm not sure that we have a plan for Afghanistan," he said. Long seen as the "forgotten war" eclipsed by Iraq in U.S. priorities, Afghanistan is in the Washington spotlight this week with the release of three independent reports concluding...

    Russia confirms Soviet sorties over Dimona in '67 By DAVID HOROVITZ The chief spokesman of the Russian Air Force, Col. Aleksandr V. Drobyshevsky, has confirmed in writing for the first time that it was Soviet pilots, in the USSR's most-advanced MiG-25 "Foxbat" aircraft, who flew highly-provocative sorties over Israel's nuclear facility at Dimona in May 1967, just prior to the Six Day War. Gideon Remez and Isabello Ginor, who co-wrote the recent book Foxbats over Dimona, which asserts that the Soviet Union deliberately engineered the war to create the conditions in which Israel's nuclear program could be destroyed, on Thursday...

    WMD Commission head says Israel and Iran 'should both end fuel-cycles' LUXEMBOURG - Israel should comply with the same demand being made of Iran, to cease its nuclear fuel-cycle and stop enriching uranium, Hans Blix, Chairman of the Weapons of Mass Destruction Commission (WMDC), told Ynetnews Thursday. Blix had earlier delivered a speech at the International Conference on Preventing Nuclear Catastrophe being held in Luxembourg, where he warned that the "world is sleep-walking into nuclear rearmament." Formally a top UN weapons inspector, Blix now heads the Sweden-based WMDC, which says it aims to "forge realistic and constructive ideas and proposals...

    JERUSALEM — The distribution of anti-radiation pills to residents near Israel's nuclear reactor at Dimona last month caused more puzzlement than panic. There had never been a known radiation leak from the facility and there were no signs of war that might pose a near-term risk to the reactor. Pronouncements from military chiefs in Tehran and Tel Aviv, however, have cast the pill distribution in a new light. "The entire Zionist territory, including its nuclear facilities and atomic arsenal, are currently within range of Iran's advanced missiles," Yadollah Javani, the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard's political bureau, declared last...

    A team from the American news corporation CNN was questioned by Israel Police on Tuesday on suspicion of trying to film at the country's nuclear reactor in Dimona. The four-strong team was detained at around 5 P.M. Tuesday after apparently attempting to shoot footage on a road to the right of the reactor. The four were originally questioned by the nuclear plant's security officers, who then reported the matter to Dimona police. During questioning, the four said that they had visited the nuclear plant as part of preparations for the release of nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu on Wednesday. The team's...

    VIENNA - "Obviously, the smaller the country is, the more concerned it will be," says Daniela Rozgonova, who is responsible for external and media relations at the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO). Her office is in the Vienna International Center, a high-rise compound that looks out over the Danube and is home to the head offices of several UN-affiliated organizations. Although her words may be interpreted as an implied criticism of Israel, they are primarily directed at a description of the facts: the treaty, which bans nuclear testing at sea, in the atmosphere, on...

    Editorial: Happy birthday, Shimon Shimon Peres "Opposition," said William Blake, "is true friendship." We think of that line in the afterglow of Shimon Peres's 80th birthday party, which brought together, among other celebrity mismatches, Moshe Katsav, Bill Clinton, Terje Roed-Larson, and Ariel Sharon for what turned out to be a moving event. If little else, these men share an admiration for Peres in which we join. Outside the Mann Auditorium in Tel Aviv, where the day's formal festivities were held, protesters called for bringing the "Oslo criminals" to justice. No Israeli newspaper has been more steadfast in its opposition to...
