´Freedom Flotilla II´ set to
sail for Gaza from Turkey

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Herb Keinon

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/27/2014 2:51:41 PM

Amid Israel´s Operation Protective Edge to stop Hamas rocket fire from Gaza, a "Freedom Flotilla" was being organized in Turkey to bring humanitarian aid to the Hamas controlled Palestinian coastal enclave. The flotilla being organized, called the "Freedom Flotilla II," is the successor of the Mavi Marmara flotilla that sought to break Israel’s blockade of the Gaza Strip in May 2010. The new flotilla is being organized by the Foundation for Human Rights and Freedoms and Humanitarian Relief" (Insani Yardim Vakfi), otherwise known as the IHH, (Snip) Israel and the US have both labelled the IHH a terrorist organization.

Comments:
Turkey, the other state (besides Qatar) that openly supports Hamas, is now interjecting itself into the fray. This will be a direct threat to Israel to break their naval blockade because we know that humanitarian aid to terrorist is measured in tonnage of weapons received. We know what 0bama will do. Stand back and let the war escalate in the hope world attention turns away from him and favors Hamas.

Israeli Navy: One shot to the rudder for each ship in the flotilla, conserve ammo. Board the ships and look for the missile resupply under the sacks of potatoes.

Though this is only a declaration of intent, it is IMPORTANT that the WH speaks out boldly and clearly on this issue. This will tell us whose side Obama is on.

Was this green-lighted during Kerry´s Saturday meeting in Paris??? The indications are frightning.

Blockade runners during a shooting war should be sent straight to the bottom.

Question is whether Turkey will try to defend militarily. I know Erdogan wants to, but he is playing with fire.

Better keep Obama on the golf course, this is all way above his pay grade.

Will Bernadine Dohrn, Obama´s long time friend and wife of fellow terrorist Bill Ayers, make an encore performance on Facist Flotilla II? Dohrn and Code Pink´s Marxists were on the first flotilla, but since she is a close associate of Obama, her role was minimized by the media.

float a bunch of lifeboats alongside each of the ships in the flotilla, and tell them they have 15 minutes to abandon ship and get clear. Then send each ship to Davey Jones´ Locker. Let the survivors paddle ashore. Be sure to bring news crews along so they can film the whole thing.

Fox News Sunday’s John Roberts asked White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough about the Obama administration’s handling of the kidnapping of freelance American journalists Steven Sotloff and James Foley, alluding to comments by the Sotloff and Foley families that the White House told them “not to dare” ransom their son from ISIS of face prosecution. “Why would the White House say something like that to them?” Roberts asked. “In terms of what was communicated to the families, in the midst of many, many meetings over the course of these very difficult circumstance, we made clear what the law is,”

Washington - While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria — a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe — poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U.S. aviation, American officials say. (Snip) In addition, according to classified U.S. intelligence assessments, the Khorasan militants have been working with bomb-makers from al-Qaida´s Yemen affiliate to test new ways to slip explosives past airport security. The fear is that the Khorasan militants will provide these

Egypt has a key role to play in countering Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry said on a visit to Cairo. He said Egypt could "publicly renounce" IS ideology, reaffirming US support for Egypt´s battle against Sinai militants. Foreign fighters crossing Sinai en route for Syria are advising local militants there, US officials say. (Snip) The 10 Arab countries to have signed up to the coalition are: Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

Pistorius Is Another O.J.

Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/13/2014 1:03:49 PM     Post Reply
It saddens me that 20 years after my sister Nicole’s murder, we are still seeing the same crimes, just different names, over and over again. The Ray Rice case reflects our misunderstanding of what domestic violence is, and the Oscar Pistorius case reminds me so much of what happened to Nicole: victims defending their partners, and batterers blaming the victim. What is most chilling to me about what I have seen in the coverage of Ray Rice is that he has not atoned for his actions; he seems more concerned with how he is now viewed. And it’s Janay Palmer who is apologizing for her part of being knocked out cold.

Nestled under the Santa Ynez mountains and cooled by the Pacific Ocean breeze, the billionaires´ bolt hole of Montecito, California, seems at first glance like a palm tree-strewn idyll. Here, in one of America´s wealthiest post codes, celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, George Lucas, Rob Lowe, Kevin Costner and Ellen DeGeneres live alongside CEOs too numerous to mention in some of the world´s biggest and most outlandish homes. But look a little closer and it is soon apparent there is trouble in this paradise: not even the likes of Miss Winfrey, it seems, can make it rain. As California endures what the state's governor

Moscow - The United States is using the Ukraine crisis to cut economic ties between the EU and Russia and force Europe to pay more for its gas, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Saturday. "The US is trying to use the crisis in Ukraine to break economic ties between the EU and Russia and force Europe to buy US gas at much higher prices," Lavrov said in a ministry statement of his interview with Russia´s Centre TV.

NFL rushing king Adrian Peterson is after another MVP — Most Virile Parent. The Minnesota Vikings running back had at least five children out of wedlock and could have had as many as seven, according to one of his ex-girlfriends. The public only knew of three of Peterson’s children, before news surfaced of a fourth, a 2-year-old son, Tyrese, who died last week after he was allegedly beaten by the mother’s current boyfriend. Baby No. 5, who’s living with her mom in Minnesota, is a 3-month-old daughter, decked out adorably in a purple-and-gold onesie proclaiming her love for the Vikings, her fast-and-loose father’s

Kampala - Ugandan security forces have stopped a cell of Somalia´s Al-Qaeda linked Shebab insurgents apparently "planning for an imminent attack," the US embassy said Saturday. "Ugandan authorities reported the discovery of an Al-Shebab terrorist cell in Kampala," it said in a statement. "We remain in close contact with our Ugandan counterparts as investigations continue into what appears to have been planning for an imminent attack." ((Snip) Last Monday the US embassy warned that Shebab insurgents may try to exact revenge for a US air strike that killed the militant group´s commander.

   

 



 
Why Lena Dunham’s
NYT mag cover is all wrong
New York Post, by Robert Rorke    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 9/12/2014 8:13:32 PM     Post Reply
The image I have of “Girls” star Lena Dunham, judging by last season’s episodes of the HBO series, is that of a girl riding a bicycle in the Hamptons in a two-piece bathing suit that is two sizes too small. Exposing her body in all of its glory is part of the Dunham hard-sell — you either buy into her “freedom at any cost” philosophy, or you don’t. How curious, then, that the New York Times, in choosing Dunham for the cover of its Culture Issue, on sale this Sunday, decided to photograph her as a piece of neoclassical art. The photographer, Victoria Diehl, modeled the Dunham portrait on a bust of Pauline Bonaparte as Venus Victrix

Dallas - Good coaches are also teachers, and Tricia Roos is a good coach. The Bishop Lynch volleyball team has won three state championships in her seven years as head coach. This season should be particularly special, not only because Bishop Lynch is trying to win its third state title in a row, but also because Coach Roos is five-and-a-half months pregnant. But what should be a time of joy has become, as she puts it, "a teaching moment." (Snip) Coach Roos´ baby has trisomy 18, a chromosome disorder so bad that doctors recommended terminating the pregnancy. Roos chose to keep her baby.

Australia raises terror alert level to ´high´

Australia has raised its terror alert level to "high" for the first time since the national alert system was introduced in 2003. According to the four-level system, a reading of "high" means a terrorist attack "is likely," however the country´s Prime Minister Tony Abbott said no specific threat had been made. "This does not mean a terror attack is imminent, we have no specific intelligence of particular plots. What we do have is intelligence that there are people with the intent and capability to mount attacks," Abbott said at a press conference in Canberra on Friday.

President Obama in his ISIS speech did his best to convince the American people that things are under control, that he will pursue a coalition with other nations to degrade and ultimately destroy ISIS and that he will do it only through air strikes.

Or are there other, hidden reasons why Obama does not want to destroy ISIS? Reluctance and refusal to go to war,

Even someone as savvy about everything as Michelle Obama sometimes flubs an outfit — or to put it more politely, wears something that doesn’t enhance her natural attractions. Which is not to say that’s all that matters about the first lady, who’s been busy with a variety of public events this week: registering voters in Georgia, cutting the ribbon on the renovated White House Visitors Center, commemorating the 9/11 terrorist attacks, even appearing in a videotaped shout-out to Prince Harry.

A high school football booster club in Ventura was prohibited from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches at its back-to-school night event because the principal didn’t like the restaurant owner’s position on gay marriage, according to CBS Los Angeles. Val Wyatt, principal of Ventura High School, was quoted in the Ventura County Star as stating, “With their political stance on gay rights and because the students of Ventura High School and their parents would be at the event, I didn’t want them on campus.” The principal was echoed by Ventura Unified School District Superintendent Trudy Tuttle Arriaga, who said, “We value inclusivity and diversity

The U.S. government Friday defended its handling of James Foley´s case after the slain journalist´s mother told CNN that officials suggested the family could be charged if they tried to raise money to free him. Saying everything possible had been done to bring the journalist home, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters officials worked very closely with Foley´s family and with his employer, GlobalPost CEO Philip Balboni.

This week, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) slandered a group of Middle Eastern Christians who were trying to raise awareness of their struggle to avoid a genocide in the Middle East. His cynical grandstanding was rightly condemned — but he was hardly alone. Cruz agreed to speak to this group, which included bishops of the Catholic and Orthodox Churches, ostensibly out of solidarity, but took the occasion to antagonize them over their insufficient praise for Israel, then smeared them as anti-Semites before dropping the mic. The Washington Free Beacon publicized this flameout — their publisher said the room

Voter turnout during last month´s primary races was a little too good in some counties, Arizona elections officials said Friday. Some precincts in northern Arizona tallied more ballots cast than there are registered voters, the Arizona Capitol Times reported. According to officials, errors made by poll workers and elections officials in Apache and Navajo counties led to the miscalculations. Initial reports from some precincts showed a turnout of anywhere from 200 to 400 percent. In Apache County, the Puerco West precinct reportedly had 100 votes cast, but only 23 voters are registered there. The voter turnout added up to 434

Let’s start with the end. When it’s over — when you make it through the marathon that is Ken Burns’s beautiful, seven-part documentary “The Roosevelts: An Intimate History,” which begins Sunday night on PBS — you may find yourself with a lingering, nebulous grief. You’re sorry it’s over. You’re sorry they’re over. You’re sorry a certain expression of American ideals is, or often appears to be, completely over. My study habits haven’t improved since college; like an idiot, I put off watching all 14 hours of “The Roosevelts” until I absolutely had to watch them on a deadline binge this week.

President Obama said there is a “silver lining” in the fight against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, arguing that Middle Eastern nations could use the opportunity to build a lasting anti-terror coalition. "We´re going to be able to build the kind of coalition that allows us to lead but also isn´t entirely dependent on what we do," Obama told a group of Democratic donors at a fundraiser in Baltimore. Arab nations needed to "snuff out" that type of "Islamic extremism," he added. The president said he was confident that the U.S. would be able to put together an international coalition
