Missile shrapnel hits cruse
ship off Israeli coast

Telegraph [UK], by Teresa Machan

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/8/2014 8:34:28 AM

Shrapnel from rockets landed on the deck of a German cruise ship as it left the Israeli port of Ashdod. German news sources said the 2,000-plus passenger ship AIDAdiva (a German arm of the Costa Cruises brand owned by Carnival Corporation) was leaving the Israeli Mediterranean port at around 8.30pm yesterday when sirens began to sound, warning Israeli cities of attacks. Explosions in Ashdod, Israel’s fifth largest city, could be seen from the ship, AIDAdiva. Guests on board were immediately informed by the ship’s officers, according to a press statement released by AIDA Cruises last night.

Comments:
Rather unreasonable and unrestrained activity on the part of the Palestinians.

P.S. Misspelling of "cruise" is T´s error.

Going on a cruise is like prison with the additional risk of drowning.

I am surprised Germans want to visit the bloodthirsty and oppressive Zionists. Maybe they are there to join the peace-loving Palestinians and give
them technical advice on firing the rockets.

Illegal immigrants crossing the river that divides Texas and Mexico would once have tried to disappear into the thick vegetation on the US side to avoid arrest. But in a striking twist to the migrant crisis that is overwhelming the US border authorities, tens of thousands of Central Americans streaming across the border are surrendering to US border officers as soon as they can. Human smuggling gangs are spreading the word that unaccompanied minors and mothers with children escaping the gang violence and poverty of Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala will no longer be deported.

´He should be in the Middle East, not the UK´:
Peace envoy Tony Blair blasted for throwing

Tony Blair--the Middle East Peace Envoy--threw a lavish birthday party for his wife on Friday night at their country bolthole in Buckinghamshire, while the grim death toll from the Gaza conflict passed the 1,050 mark. Mr Blair, whose role is to hammer out a ceasefire in times of conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, spent most of last week in the UK before hosting the couple’s friends at the party, estimated to have cost about £50,000. He held the surprise 60th birthday party for Cherie at their £6million country mansion South Pavilions, formerly the home of Sir John Gielgud, inviting

Watch skyline view from Gaza City and the south Israel border as Israel resumes operations after Hamas rejects truce. The sound of explosions rippled across Gaza on Sunday as Israel resumed its Gaza offensive after a series of Palestinian rocket attacks. The Israeli military said on Sunday it would resume targeting Gaza militants after "Hamas´ incessant rocket fire" during an extension of a temporary humanitarian truce. Israel´s cabinet had unilaterally decided to extend the truce for 24 hours, until midnight (2200 BST) on Sunday.

Hamas declares 24

Hamas leaders agreed to a renewed 24-hour ceasefire today--hours after the Gaza Strip erupted with gunfire and artillery explosions when the previous truce came to an end. The announcement gave rise to hopes for a brief pause in the conflict. The ceasefire is due to start at 2pm local time. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, did not say if Israel would observe the truce during the requested time. He said troops would continue demolishing Hamas military tunnels. Israel had previously announced a “humanitarian” truce from 8am until 8pm on Saturday, later extending this until midnight. The security cabinet then

The lesson comes too late for the United States, but there it is: after the US abandoned its military base and its foreign policy influence in Iceland in 2006, both Russia and China are now showing how keen they are to fill the void and take advantage of the growing strategic importance of the island nation at the edge of the Arctic Circle. It is more than just tiny Iceland’s rich fisheries and potential undersea mineral wealth that is attracting both the largest country in the world and the most populous. In April last year, China agreed a free trade

Hamas militants are attempting to negotiate a new arms deal with North Korea for missiles and communications equipment that will allow them to maintain their offensive against Israel, according to Western security sources. Security officials say the deal between Hamas and North Korea is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars and is being handled by a Lebanese-based trading company with close ties to the militant Palestinian organisation based in east Beirut. Hamas officials are believed to have already made an initial cash down payment to secure the deal, and are now hoping that North Korea will soon begin shipping extra

Israel agreed to extend by four hours a humanitarian truce agreed with Hamas and other armed groups in the Gaza Strip on Saturday, but Hamas said it never agreed to the extension that would take the 12 hour humanitarian ceasefire that began at 8:00 a.m. to midnight. Sami Abu Zuhri, a spokesman for Hamas said there was no agreement to extend the ceasefire. [Snip] "As far as Israel is concerned, there is no reason to prevent Gaza's people from stocking up on supplies, so long as the military can continue its work against the tunnels. Our war is not against the population," the official said.

Medical staff who helped stop a gunman from killing more people at a Pennsylvania hospital on Thursday have been been hailed as heroes. Dr Lee Silverman, who police say may have been the intended target, and caseworker John D´Alonzo, were able to quickly stop Richard Plotts after he shot dead their co-worker. The 49-year-old, who has a history of mental illness, was attempting to reload his gun when Silverman fired several shots, and D´Alonzo wrestled him to the ground. District attorney Jack Whelan gave new details Friday about the terrifying encounter in an office next to Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital in Darby.

The US says it has temporarily shut its embassy in the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns. Embassy staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been evacuated to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds. The state department has also urged US nationals not to go to Libya. It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with recent fighting at Tripoli airport. [Snip] State department spokeswoman Marie Harf said the withdrawal "underscored the Obama administration´s concern about the heightened risk to American diplomats abroad".

The sunny highs of July are numbered, with a dramatic drop in temperature next week when a second polar blast hits large parts of the U.S. Temperatures are forecast to be up to 20 degrees below average for this time of year, with some places experiencing a chill more usual in the fall. A jet stream from polar regions will bring the unseasonable weather in on Sunday, with a band of thunderstorms leading it in Ohio and along the East Coast. The storms are likely to bring hail, strong winds, and a risk of tornadoes in and around the Ohio

Obama wants to be impeached

President Obama insists on flirting with impeachment even as House Republican leaders insist there’s no such possibility. Obama uses a passive-aggressive strategy that can be judged as a political maneuver, a personality disorder, or both. Secure in the knowledge that impeachment is not the same as removal from office, Mr. Obama brings up the topic on his own and with bold defiance. Martyrdom goes well with a Messiah complex and Mr. Obama’s speeches are a non-stop litany of depicting himself as a victim of Republicans. Already operating beyond the constitutional bounds of presidential power, Mr. Obama’s strategy is to push the bounds

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Pelosi reminded reporters that it was the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested that if Moses hadn’t have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn’t be the Ten Commandments. “You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh´s family?

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi, 21, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 20, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street late Friday with the pressure cookers in their car’s trunk, said law enforcement sources. A doorman called Crimestoppers, and NYPD counterterrorism and intelligence officers arrived to question the men. Police did not

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer." Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn´t have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.

As is always the case with anything involving former-Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, our unbiased, objective, not-at-all-liberal media couldn´t wait to mock her impeachment case against President Obama -- but not everyone is laughing. According to reporting from The Hill, The White House fears exactly that should the president take executive action to grant amnesty to thousands of illegals. Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations. Dan Pfeiffer, a senior adviser to Obama, said Friday that the White House

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and
