    Stratfor ^ | November 15, 2012
    Two projectiles, which Stratfor believes to be Fajr-5 rockets due to their range, landed near Tel Aviv -- one just south of the municipal line and one in the water just outside of the southern suburb of Bat Yam. No injuries have been reported. A spokesman for the Israel Defense Forces denied that a rocket had landed in Tel Aviv, although this statement conflicts with eyewitness reports and may reflect the fact that projectiles have landed in areas just south of the actual Tel Aviv municipal boundary. This strike is the furthest Hamas has ever struck into Israeli territory and...

    Palestinian militants barraged Israel with more than 200 rockets on Thursday, killing three people as Israel pressed a punishing campaign of airstrikes on militant targets across the Gaza Strip. Late in the day, Israel signaled a ground operation may be imminent as forces moved toward the border area with Gaza. At least 12 trucks were seen transporting tanks and armored personnel carriers, and a number of buses carrying soldiers arrived. Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said he had authorized the army to call-up additional reservists for possible action. The army said it was prepared to draft up to 30,000 additional...

    The murder of Shaima Alawadi, a Muslim woman in California, was trumpeted worldwide as an anti-Muslim hate crime. Now it turns out that it was an Islamic honor killing. But rest assured that there will be no media stampede to correct the deliberate lie. For the Islamic supremacists and their useful idiots in the media, this poor woman has served her purpose. Kari Huus of NBC News reported Friday that police have arrested the husband of an Iraqi woman beaten to death in her home eight months ago for what initially looked like a racially motivated hate crime.

    The radical Islamist cleric Abu Qatada has been released from Long Lartin high-security prison in Worcestershire after a British court ruled that he should not be sent back to Jordan to face trial on torture-based evidence. The terror suspect is being driven back to his home in north-west London where he faces a 16-hour-a-day curfew enforced by an electronic tag and strict restrictions on who he can meet. The details of his bail conditions were expected to be released later on Tuesday. His release came as it emerged that the home secretary, Theresa May, faces a lengthy timetable in her...

    a United Airlines pilot had to make an emergency landing after a passenger refused to stop praying in the aisle....On the flight from Denver to Washington, DC, a man got disorderly when attendants wanted him to go back to his seat and stop reciting religious verses. Needless to say, the behavior frightened many other people on the plane, and a small group, no doubt with 9/11 at the top of their minds, were moved to take action. Desperate to get the man to stop his outburst, passengers banded together to subdue him. The pilot alerted the control tower that they...

    Facebook is striking back at the administers of the group Uprising of Women in the Arab World. The reason? One of the women in the group had the audacity to show herself without a veil on. In October, Dana Bakdounes posted a picture of herself unveiled, holding a message that read in Arabic and English, I am with the uprising of women in the Arab world because, for 20 years, I was not allowed to feel the wind in my hair. By October 25, the picture was removed by Facebook. Facebook took further action, temporarily banning five administrators of the...

    Islamization isn't only happening in Europe. If these are our "allies", I'd sure hate to hear what our enemies have to say about us. According to Rabbi Baruch Efrati, "Jews should 'rejoice at the fact that Europe is paying for what it did to us for hundreds of years by losing its identity.' " "With the help of God, the gentiles there will adopt a healthier life with a lot of modesty and integrity, and not like the hypocritical Christianity which appears pure but is fundamentally corrupt," he explained." "even if we are in a major war with the region's...

    Whos next? London, Amsterdam, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Dearborn? Until last year there was an annual Christmas tree standing in the center of the Grote Market in Brussels. Councillor Bianca Debaets regrets that this year the traditional Market tree will not be there. I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor, she added. he City has announced that there will be no tree at the Grote Markt this year. It will be replaced by an exhibit of lights that looks like an Evergreen tree. Debaets is not happy with that decision as she sees Christmas being gradually...
