Obama praises Abbas, but not
Netanyahu in opinion piece
published by Israeli newspaper

Fox News*, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/8/2014 7:19:21 AM

President Barack Obama offered strong praise for Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in an opinion piece published Tuesday in an Israeli newspaper, but had little to say about the other key player in the crisis, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. "In President Abbas, Israel has a counterpart committed to a two-state solution and security cooperation with Israel," Obama wrote in the daily Haaretz. The president offered no parallel praise for Netanyahu, who is only mentioned by name once in the piece. Obama´s comments, published in Hebrew, Arabic and English, were his first public comments on Middle Eastern affairs since the murder of three

Is there anything that Obama is right about? The Isra]ies have said that the murder, in a heinous way, was wrong and are searching for the culprits. That is more than Abbas has ever done. How many years does Obama want them to turn the other cheek? Palestinians and other Muslems are making war inevitable. As I keep saying, they have never stopped until they get a good thrashing. George W. Bush had the right idea. America, on a big base in Iraq, able to move in any direction, keeping the peace. Too few of our voters did not see his vision and, of course, the Democrats could not let a Republican be successfulno matter the cost to the world and especially the Middle East.

I wonder if the Jewish people of the United States[especially those living in East coast states] will notice, or is their unwavering support of Democrats so ingrained that they don´t see the "writing on the wall" and Obama?

President Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. (no relation to Sammy!) was born in Honoluulu, and looks EXACTLY like "Pops"

Please go to the real father site, check out Pops´ photos, and stop spewing this nonsense.

For this I´ll use Yoda´s response to Darth Sidious´s statement that he survived the killing of all the Jedi in Star War Revenge of the Sith, "Surprised." Because if you are still surprised about Odimwit´s behavior when it comes to Netanyahu and Israel as opposed to that corrupt fool Abbas then your just kidding yourself.

As Baylor opens McLane Stadium,
team hopes to live up to new standard

WACO — First there was the dream, then the artist’s drawings followed by two years of construction along Interstate 35. The finished product that is McLane Stadium still overwhelmed Baylor football coach Art Briles at a team scrimmage earlier this month. “I dreamed too small,” Briles said. “I envisioned something, but my visions weren’t reality. The reality is much grander, much better and more magnificent. It’s an unbelievable facility.” The $266 million facility adjacent to campus and the Brazos River will host its first Baylor game Sunday when SMU visits. The 45,000-seat stadium is smallish by major-college standards but a good fit for

There’s something weird about the Wendy Davis campaign’s recent ads. Have you seen them? If not, you probably will soon. We’re at the stage of the campaign where candidates start to open their coffers. This is the most expensive race in Texas history, and at the top of the ticket, Davis has amassed a small fortune, which is absolutely dwarfed by the Abbott’s much larger fortune. These campaigns are set to run a formidable air war against each other come the fall, and it’s starting. But Abbott’s cash advantage—he had $35.6 million to Davis’ $11.1 million mid-summer—means he can run pretty

An Islamic militant group said Sunday it has “secured” a U.S. Embassy compound in Libya’s capital city of Tripoli. American personnel evacuated the area roughly a month ago amid ongoing fighting in the country. An Associated Press journalist walked through the compound Sunday after the Dawn of Libya, an umbrella group for Islamist militias, invited onlookers inside. Windows at the compound had been broken, but it appeared most of the equipment there remained untouched. A commander for the Dawn of Libya group said his forces had entered and been in control of the compound since last week. Fox News as of late Sunday

The former Congressman – and father of the frontrunner for the GOP presidential nomination – thinks the government is keeping secrets about 9/11. Former Rep. Ron Paul believes that the government knew beforehand, in detail, about the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, and that the information has been kept from the public in a classified section of the 9/11 commission report. When the host of Money and Markets, Charles Goyette, recently said that it is "shocking that the American people are prohibited from knowing the whole truth about 9/11," Paul countered: "Boy, that´s for sure.

"This year is our year," says former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach. The legendary football player turned real-estate mogul is sitting far from the field in a glass-enclosed conference room overlooking the Dallas skyline. He´s a few feet from his corner office at real-estate company Jones Lang LaSalle, where he is executive chairman of the Americas region. Although he´s hopeful about the Cowboys´ prospects, he adds, "I said that last year." Whether they win or lose, to Mr. Staubach, the Cowboys will always be "America´s Team." And at age 72, he says he sometimes still gets called "America´s Quarterback." The Cowboys

Iraqi security forces, with the help of Shiite volunteers, broke a two-month siege by Islamic State militants on the northern Iraqi town of Amirli on Sunday, a day after U.S. airstrikes targeted the area. Iraqi forces reached the town Sunday, Army spokesman Lt. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi said without providing further details. Iraqi state TV is also reporting the siege was broken, CNN reported. "Today is a day of victory for Iraq and the resilient people of Amirli," retired Gen. Khaled al-Amerli, an Amerli resident and member of its self-defense force, told CNN.

The U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the most recent addition to the lengthy list of federal agencies – and the realization of a proposal from then-Harvard professor and current US Sen. Elizabeth Warren – has done its fair share to keep the financial industry honest. This much is undisputed. But to some of its workers, the agency, which was founded in 2011, lacks that same effort in protecting its own employees against varying forms of discrimination, including racism, according to a new report. There are currently “scores of cases of U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau employees seeking protection from racially

At Watts Up With That?, Ed Hoskins spotlights the intractable problem with solar and wind power: much of the time, the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing. This means that in practice, solar and wind facilities can produce only a small fraction of their nominal capacities. This chart requires a bit of study; for three countries, the U.S., Germany and the U.K., it contrasts the nominal (“nameplate”) capacity of wind and solar facilities with their actual production of energy: (Snip for graph) In each case, the actual energy produced is only a small fraction of the rated capacity.

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama heads to Europe next week, looking to assure nervous allies of the United States’ commitment to the region, as NATO prepares to beef up forces amid fears that Russia will step up its provocations beyond Ukraine. Obama arrives in Estonia late Tuesday, where he’ll meet with the presidents of the three Baltic states, along with U.S. and Estonian troops. He’ll also travel to Wales to meet with world leaders at a NATO summit, as the group that was created in 1949 to bolster security against the Soviet Union finds itself gearing up to respond to

Drew Griffin and CNN’s “The Situation Room” ran a remarkably fair segment on the indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Members of the mainstream media don’t do Republicans many favors, but in this case, their presentation of what led to the indictment is powerfully presented and a real net-plus for Perry. (Snip for video)The video of surly, drunk Democratic Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg is so over the top that television producers must find it irresistible. The CNN commentators can hardly suppress their giggles. Anyway, CNN’s coverage of the whole affair exposes what a farce the indictment is and makes

Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.
