  • Israeli TV report shows air force gearing-up for Iran attack, says moment of truth is near

    The Times of Israel ^ | April 15, 2012 | Greg Tepper
    A major Israel TV station on Sunday night broadcast a detailed report on how Israel will go about attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities in the event that diplomacy and sanctions fail and Israel decides to carry out a military strike. The report, screened on the main evening news of Channel 10, was remarkable both in terms of the access granted to the reporter, who said he had spent weeks with the pilots and other personnel he interviewed, and in the fact that his assessments on a strike were cleared by the military censor. No order to strike is likely to be...

    Democrats in House of Reps. joined J Street in supporting Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions Seventy-four Democrats in the House of Representatives have joined the dovish J Street organization in supporting the Obama administration's attempt to force Israel into making painful concessions to the Palestinian Authority. “In our view, support for a two-state resolution is inseparable from such support for Israel, its special relationship with the United States, and its very survival as a democratic homeland for the Jewish people,” the letter said. Seven Jewish members signed the letter, including Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), John...

    Police detained two leftist activists Sunday at Ben Gurion International Airport Sunday afternoon after they held up signs that said "Welcome to Palestine." Forty anti-Israeli activists were refused entry into Israel in the hours between Saturday night and 3:00 p.m. Sunday. They were all taken to questioning in the Interior Ministry office at the airport, pending their repatriation. The two leftists unfurled the signs immediately after Police Central District Commander Maj. Gen. Bentzi Sau gave reporters a briefing on the situation. As they were led away, nationalist Israeli activists shouted at them: "Go see what is going on in Syria!"...

    The Israeli government has issued an official “welcome” letter to the pro-‘Palestinian’ “flytilla” activists who plan on arriving in the country on Saturday and Sunday. It reads as follows: “Dear Activists, "We appreciate your choosing to make Israel the object of your humanitarian concerns. “We know there were many other worthy choices. “You could have chosen to protest the Syrian regime’s daily savagery against its own people, which has claimed thousands of lives. "You could have chosen to protest the Iranian regime’s brutal crackdown on dissent and its support of terrorism throughout the world. "You could have chosen to protest...

    'Members of a pro-Palestinian campaign group have been refused travel from Manchester Airport to Israel. Airline Jet2 said Israeli officials informed it 13 people booked on a flight to Ben Gurion airport would not be allowed into Israel. A Jet2 spokesman said: "In light of this decision we were unable to accept them for travel." The head of a Scottish pro-Palestine group, whose members were banned from flying, said it was atrocious. Mick Napier and nine other people from the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign were stopped by the budget airline from boarding flight LS907. They were part of a UK...

    The IDF has decided to suspend Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, the IDF officer who was videotaped striking a Danish anarchist with his gun. In an updated statement released late Sunday evening, the IDF Spokesman's Unit said, “The Head of Central Command, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon, has ordered an immediate inquiry into the incident in which Lt. Col. Shalom Eisner, Deputy Commander of the Bik'a Brigade, was seen hitting protesters in the Jordan Valley yesterday. After an initial inquiry conducted this evening (Sunday) by the Commander of the Bik’a Brigade, Maj. Gen. Nitzan Alon decided to adopt the recommendation of the...

    Bible Prophecy Blog ^ | 4/15/2012 | Ryan Jones
    Israel was on alert Sunday for a planned mass fly-in protest, or "flytilla," by foreign anti-Israel activists protesting the Jewish state's control of Judea and Samaria, including the eastern half of Jerusalem. But by the end of the work day, a mere 27 activists had managed to land in Israel. They were quickly detained and deported. The stunt was largely thwarted by Israel loudly publicizing the fact that it would deny entry to the activists, insisting that they were arriving for the sole purpose of provoking unrest. As a result, most airlines canceled the activists' tickets rather than be billed...

    A faux pax by Senator Diane Feinstein outed the presence of Mossad chief Tamir Pardo in Washington to discuss a possible strike on Iran. Mossad director Tamir Pardo is in Washington for talks about a possible attack on Iran's nuclear installations, Israel's Channel 2 reported on Tuesday. Pardo's visit, which would normally be conducted in secret, was revealed by US Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, 78, who made the faux pax at committee hearing. The hearing was being broadcast live by US television. Feinstein said she had spoken with Pardo, who also met with CIA director David Petraeus, adding...

    Daily Caller ^ | 2/27/12 | Reza Kahlili
    My sources inside Iran tell me that President Obama, seeking to protect the recovering U.S. economy and bolster his chances of being re-elected in November, apparently has entered into an informal agreement with Iran that he believes will defuse the nuclear weapons crisis and keep Israel from attacking the Islamic regime. The agreement calls for the United States to acknowledge that Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons, and for Iran to hand over its highly enriched uranium, which is necessary for nuclear weaponization. Iran, for its part, though engaging Obama, has no intention of abiding by the agreement and is...

    Coach is Right ^ | April 14th, 2012 | Jim Emerson
    Russia is anticipating that Iran will be attacked this summer and has developed a contingency plan to mass troops along the Iranian border. On the surface, this move will be used by the Russians to justify the move to protect its interests in the region as well assist the Islamic regime if needed. Their plan doesn’t leave out the possibility of Russian Forces to engaging Israelis and Americans if Moscow feels its interests in Iran are threatened. The goal will be a show of force to stop any former Soviet states from providing military support to any country which attacks...

    excerpt- Anything that retards Iran's nuclear progress is helpful. But even if the talks "solved" the nuclear issue—virtually inconceivable, given the measures the Iranians have taken to preserve their program—a bigger problem would remain: the Iranian regime itself. Whatever progress is made in the context of overlapping short-term interests, it will do little to change the long-term strategic problems presented by a hostile Iran. And Iran is hostile. It is one of the most underreported stories of the past decade: As we went to war in Afghanistan and Iraq, Iran went to war with us. Tehran has provided weapons to...

    Of Israel, Passover, Palestine, Apartheid and PRBy Joel Leyden Israel News Agency Jerusalem, Israel --- April 12, 2012 .... It is often said that we sometimes can't see the forest for the trees. So it goes for Israel's PR efforts. Israel suffers everyday. We suffer from a lack of global understanding of the true facts. And this suffering transcends into threats to our very physical survival. The war of words is overlooked by Israel and the Jewish community for the war of bullets. Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Hamas and Islamic Jihad backed Palestine (there is no entity as Palestine -...

    A vaccine that can train cancer patients' own bodies to seek out and destroy tumour cells has been developed by scientists. The therapy, which targets a molecule found in 90 per cent of all cancers, could provide a universal injection that allows patients' immune systems to fight off common cancers including breast and prostate cancer. Preliminary results from early clinical trials have shown the vaccine can trigger an immune response in patients and reduce levels of disease. The scientists behind the vaccine now hope to conduct larger trials in patients to prove it can be effective against a range of...
