    The likelihood that Syrian President Bashar Assad would make use of chemical warfare or hand such weapons over to Hezbollah has diminished significantly in recent days, according to a top official in Jerusalem. Citing data from Western intelligence agencies, the official said that the Syrian regime does not intend to employ the chemical weapons in its possession. Moreover, it is taking great care to make sure that the arsenal doesn't fall into the hands of any group outside the Syrian army.

    The European Union on Tuesday rejected Israel's request that it categorize Hizbullah as a terrorist organization. Cypriot Foreign Minister Gujarat Cossack-Marcolis, who presently holds the EU's rotating presidency, said "there is no consensus on the issue, because Hizbullah also has an active political arm." She added that the matter is open for reconsideration if "tangible evidence" that Hizbullah is involved in terrorist activity can be brought. .....

    Fresh off of handing a “diversity” award to outspoken Jew-hater Dawud Walid, the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) is moving on to a new outrage by launching an attack on the U.S. Constitution. The current issue of ISNA’s bi-monthly magazine Islamic Horizons carries an article about ISNA’s demand for gun control. Specifically, the article, with the unambiguous title “ISNA Seeks Gun Control,” cites shooting of Trayvon Martin to explain their opposition to S. 2188, the “National right- to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012,” and S. 2213, the “Respecting States’ Rights and Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2012.”An April 13 th...

    Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem Isaiah 52 7. How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!” 8. Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy. When the Lord returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes. 9. Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem, for the Lord has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem. 10. The Lord will lay bare his holy arm in...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 23/7/12 | Ambassador Dr. Dore Gold
    Levy's committee has restored Israel's legal narrative about its rights in the "West Bank". There is a huge difference in how a compromise will look if Israel comes to the table as "foreign occupiers," or as a party that has just territorial claims. In January 2012, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yaakov Neeman, the justice minister, turned to former Israeli supreme court justice Edmond Levy to head a panel of legal experts that would look into questions of land ownership in the "West Bank" (biblical Judea and Samaria, located west of the Jordan River, ed) . The initiative came...
  • Bibi's Subtle Diss of Barry

    You have to start with the premise that the Prime Minister of Israel chooses his words carefully. Unlike our president who is more enchanted with the sound of his own voice than Narcissus was with his reflection. Netanyahu was asked by Chris Wallace on Wallace's Fox News Sunday show about the terrorist attack on a bus in Bulgaria that slaughtered five Israeli tourists. Bibi was well beyond adamant that the perpetrators were Hezbollah, supported by Iran. On this point, the prime minister was quite forceful. Wallace then asked Netanyahu if he had shared any of his recently acquired information with...

Now, to refresh your memory, Andy McCarthy was the man who, along with Patrick Fitzgerald, incidentally, prosecuted Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind sheik, who was the first guy to engineer the first blowing up of the World Trade Center, 1993. The blind sheik and his buddies had massive plans to blow up bridges and tunnels, and many of Obama's precious roads in Manhattan and New Jersey. McCarthy prosecuted Omar...
  • What Will Happen To Israel's Neighbors...Islam in prophecy pt 14

    “And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord God.”(Ezekiel 28:24)In view of this series on the Arab nations in Bible prophecy, we must look at Psalm 83. This is a Psalm that is a prayer of Israel, in fact a desperate prayer to God for help in view of an overwhelming attack by a confederation of Israel’s near neighbors who vow to erase Israel from the map. Keep not thou silence,...

    Senator John McCain has become a left-wing media darling for defending Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin against truthful charges that she has family connections to the pro-terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. Andrew McCarthy notes there used to be a time when McCain was alarmed by the advance of the Muslim Brotherhood. We commented on this new phase of McCain’s career when he showed up at a Washington event to praise and honor the Arab-funded Al-Jazeera, the voice of the Muslim, the website of the Muslim Brotherhood, has labeled Al-Jazeera “the greatest Arab media organization.” Almost as curious as McCain’s flip-flop on...

    Remember a while back when some Florida pastor with a bad mustache and worse manners threatened and then ultimately burned a Koran? I am sure you do. It had plenty of two things, media coverage and body count. There is another story that is likely to have neither of those things, mercifully. The Bible Society in Israel sent some copies of the New Testament to members of the Israeli Knesset with a note that said "We hope the book will help you and illuminate your way.” MK Michael Ben Ari, with better facial hair than the aforementioned Florida Pastor but...

    Israel filed a complaint against Syria Monday in the United Nations, alleging that Syrian forces crossed the border between Israel and Syria in the Golan Heights last week. Israel's Deputy UN Ambassador, Haim Waxman, sent a letter to the UN Security Council Secretary General, in which he said that during fighting Thursday between the Syrian Army and rebel forces at Jubta al-Hasheb, Syrian forces crossed the 1974 Armistice Line.

    Two young Israeli men survived a violent carjacking early on Friday morning. The two were driving in Samaria (Shomron) when they found themselves surrounded by ten Arab men. One of the two managed to run away, and made his way to the Israeli community of Eish Kodesh to report the attack. The second young man remained missing, and was feared injured or kidnapped. A search began, but was soon called off when the second man, too, made his way to Eish Kodesh alive and well. The stolen car was found in the nearby Arab village of Duma. The vehicle had...

    It was just a matter of time before self-appointed prominent Jewish leaders in America got organized to send a letter to PM Netanyahu claiming that Israel's int'l standing is in peril due to the recent judicial report by retired Supreme Court Justice Edmond Levy who concluding that Israel is not occupying Judea and Samaria and that there is no legal prohibition to populate the land east of the 1967 "border" (actually 1949 Armistice Lines) with Jewish residents. Beyond the issue of the report itself, why have US Jewish leaders become so agitated and disturbed? "As strong advocates for Israel’s security...
