    No Jews Allowed Democrats have a Jewish problem: US Embassy in Tel Aviv Severely Restricts Visas for Israelis Tourist visa process cancelled until further notice, embassy announces.

    Under Syrian Rule More than 2000 years ago there was a time when the land of Israel was part of the Syrian-Greek Empire, dominated by Syrian rulers of the dynasty of the Seleucids. In order to relate the story that led up to Chanukah, we shall start with Antiochus III, the King of Syria, who reigned from 3538 to 3574 (222-186 B.C.E.). He had waged war with King Ptolemy of Egypt over the possession of the Land of Israel. Antiochus III was victorious and the Land of Israel was annexed to his empire. At the beginning of his reign he...

    Barack Obama has found yet another way to express his special brand of anti-Semitism and hatred of Israel while the mainstream media looks the other way. Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Thursday dropped out of Obamas 47-nation nuclear security summit, after discovering that Israel was going to be pressured there to sign on to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty, which would drastically weaken Israels defenses.

    Anti-Israel apartheid: The bigoted campaign to de-legitimize multi-racial & full democratic state of Israel by (lying) branding it as "apartheid" - the slur originated at the bigoted Arab Muslim societyWhat drives this "belief" (slur - actually) on a society where Arabs can vote and get to high office, where all colors & races have equal rights?More troubling how one can not see the originators of this racist label - coming from the real Apartheid Arab-Muslim states where Jews are either not allowed in (like racist ethnic cleansed "Palestine" authority) & Christians are (real) second class citizens facing persecution, where...

    Israel promised Russia it would not launch an attack on Iran, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview aired on Sunday in which he described such an assault as "the worst thing that can be imagined." Medvedev denied Moscow was backing Iran but said it had the right to supply defensive weapons and said sanctions against Tehran should only be used as a last resort. An attack would lead to "a humanitarian disaster, a vast number of refugees, Iran's wish to take revenge and not only upon Israel, to be honest, but upon other countries as well," "But my...

    Juval Aviv was the Israeli Agent upon whom the movie ' Munich 'was based. He was Golda Meir's bodyguard--she appointed him to track down and bring to justice the Palestinian terrorists who took the Israeli athletes hostage and killed them during the Munich Olympic Games. In a lecture in New York City a few weeks ago, he shared information that EVERY American needs to know--but that our government has not yet shared with us. (Aviv's bio is noted at end.) He predicted the London subway bombing on the Bill O'Reilly show on Fox News stating publicly that it would happen...

  • Ehud Barak says solution to Qassam threat to arrive 'faster than expected'

    "A solution to the Qassams will be found faster than what most people believe," Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Wednesday night during a meeting with the heads of the western Negev communities at Sapir College, where 47-year-old Roni Yechiah found his death earlier in a rocket attack. Yechiah was the 11th casualty of the incessant Qassam rocket fire from Gaza. "This is a difficult day; we have one casualty and it is not easy at all," Barak said. During the meeting explosions resulting from the IDF strikes on Gaza, which came in retaliation to Wednesday's multiple Qassam attacks on Israel,...
  • No major IDF response to Qassam strike in Negev due to tensions in north

    09/11/2007 3:22:52 AM PDT · by maquiladora · 12 replies · 423+ views
    It appears that Israel's response to a Qassam rocket attack on an Israel Defense Forces base in the northern Negev early Tuesday, which left at least 66 soldiers wounded, will likely be limited, due mainly to recent tensions with Syria. It is Israel's policy at this time not to invest too many resources in Gaza, the source of the Qassam rockets, when these resources could potentially be required should conflict erupt in the north. Prime Minister Ehud Olmert on Tuesday convened several consultation sessions in order to discuss Israel's possible response to the rocket attack. Olmert is scheduled to meet...
  • Peres on Sept 5th goes to Vatican to see if Catholic Church will oversee the Temple Mount

    Shimon Peres is going to see the Pope on September 5th to see if the Catholic Church will oversee the temple mount. The reason is the his plan to negotiate for sharing it with the Muslim as outlined in a final status deal with the Palestinians before an international conference in November. Peres quietly drafted a plan for the Jewish state to evacuate and transfer to the Palestinians nearly the entire West Bank and several Arab Israeli cities located within territory that undisputedly is Israel's according to the international community. The diplomatic sources also said earlier this U.S.-brokered month biweekly...

    WASHINGTON -- The cowboy has been retired. Multilateralism is back. Diplomacy is king. That's the conventional wisdom about Bush's second term: Under the influence of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the administration has finally embraced ``the allies.'' This is considered a radical change of course. It is not. Even the most ardent unilateralist always prefers multilateral support under one of two conditions: (1) there is something the allies will actually help accomplish, or (2) there is nothing to be done anyway, so multilateralism gives you the cover of appearing to do something. The six-party negotiations on North Korea are an...

I flew to Lebanon last week to do whatever I could to help the Hizballah freedom fighters defend themselves. After an uneventful flight, I arrived in Beirut and immediately was driven to the front lines where I joined a crack squadron of Hizballah soldiers bunch of smelly guys in dirty t-shirts carrying guns. After being somewhat roughly forced to don a burqa and serve lunch to the troops, I had an opportunity to interview several of them. I wanted to hear of...

    After a comparatively quiet morning, the North of Israel found itself once again under rocket fire early Tuesday afternoon, with rockets landing in Kfar Mrar, Kiryat Shmona, Acre, and Nahariya. The heaviest barrage, which included 16 rockets, struck Haifa. In Kfar Mrar, a 15-year-old girl was killed after a rocket stuck a private residence near a mosque in the Galilee village, which is home to Druse, Christians, and Muslims. 24 other people were wounded in the attack - one seriously, two moderately and two lightly. 20 were being treated for shock, according to Magen David Adom. Earlier, in Haifa, at...

    The Islamic organization poised to build the largest mosque in the Northeast on a site in Roxbury has long-standing ties to an Egyptian cleric who praises suicide bombings and a Muslim activist indicted last week in a terrorism financing probe. The Islamic Society of Boston, which has city approval to build a sprawling $22 million Islamic cultural center and mosque on Malcolm X Boulevard, has had a long association with Dr. Yusuf Abdullah al-Qaradawi, whose vocal support of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas prompted the State Department to bar him from entering the U.S. four years ago. The local religious...

    Uzbek Blasts Hit U.S. and Israeli Embassies By Shamil Baigin TASHKENT, Uzbekistan (Reuters) - Suspected suicide bombers struck the U.S. and Israeli embassies in Uzbekistan as well as the state prosecutor's office Friday, killing two local guards at the Israeli mission and wounding nine other people. The clearly coordinated blasts in the capital Tashkent came four days after the authoritarian ex-Soviet state, a U.S. ally in the "war on terror," put 15 suspected al Qaeda followers on trial for bomb attacks in March that killed nearly 50 people. U.S. and Israeli officials said the three bombers seemed to approach the...

    The following explanation of basic Islam will help you to understand the foundations of the ongoing struggle in the Middle East and why our prayers are so vital. As Islam lies at the foundation of the present deadly conflict in the Middle East, it is very important to understand this religion in order to pray accurately. National borders are NOT the basic issue. When Jordan and Egypt controlled the West Bank and Gaza, nobody ever mentioned the idea of asking these countries to establish a sovereign Palestinian state there. What we are seeing is a religious and spiritual conflict between...

    <p>September 3, 2003 -- JONATHAN Pollard, convicted spy, would like to be set free. His advocates in the United States also want Pollard to go free. And his one-time paymasters in Israel badly want him to go free. Pollard was in court yesterday asking for a reduction in his sentence. But he should have been executed for his crimes. His life sentence was a mercy he didn't deserve. Releasing him from prison while he's still breathing would be terrible for America - and even worse for Israel.</p>

    Former president Jimmy Carter, who has recently emerged as one of the Jewish state's most vocal critics for its current West Bank anti-terror policy, has been the recipient of tens of millions of dollars from Arab sources. Recently, for example, Carter suggested that the U.S. government should threaten Israel with the possible loss of U.S. aid if it continues its military offensive in the West Bank. He also said the U.S. should demand that U.S.-supplied weapons be used only for defensive purposes. Mr. Carter's views are often aired by the American media as those of a neutral mediator -- the...

    Even Arabs who supported Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat (news - web sites)'s decision to speak out against violence called it a painful choice Sunday, and many accused Secretary of State Colin Powell (news - web sites) of siding with Israel in his Mideast peace mission. "Once again, President Arafat yields to pressure, especially American pressure," said an unsigned column in the Saudi Al Watan daily. Arafat issued a statement Saturday condemning attacks on civilians, including a suicide bombing that killed six people in a Jerusalem market the night before, fulfilling a condition from Powell, who said he would not meet...
