Gaza conflict: 72-hour ceasefire
´agreed by both sides´

Telegraph [UK], by Josie Ensor

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/31/2014 9:09:46 PM

Israel and Hamas have agreed to a three-day ceasefire, the UN and US have jointly announced. John Kerry, the US Secretary of State, said he had assurance from both sides that they would honour a 72-hour unconditional ceasefire, during which time negotiations on a more durable truce would be discussed in Cairo. [Snip] "During this period, civilians in Gaza will receive urgently needed humanitarian relief, and the opportunity to carry out vital functions, including burying the dead, taking care of the injured, and restocking food supplies," he said, adding the ceasefire was jointly announced with Ban Ki-moon, the UN Secretary-General.

Comments:
I know I just posted an article on this very same subject but I´d like you to compare this to the BBC version below. This shows that Kerry is taking the biggest part of the credit because "he had assurance from both sides." Hmmm, I´d like to see evidence of those assurances. He did add a by-the-way to the effect that "the ceasefire was jointly announced with Ban Ki-moon,the UN Secretary-General."

Poor John, he wants his own real peace prize so badly.

A cease fire only helps hamas. Ban Ki-Moon should be banned

I would be willing to bet a large sum of money (it wouldn´t be gambling) that Hamas will break the cease fire first...

In the JPost version, there was this:

Hamas said it would abide by a three-day mutual cease-fire with Israel to begin early on Friday.

´Acknowledging a call by the United Nations and in consideration of the situation of our people, resistance factions agreed to a 72-hour humanitarian and
mutual calm that begins at 8 a.m on Friday as long as the other side abides by it,´ Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said." [Emphasis added.}

The IDF has already said it will continue its tunnel work until they´re all blown up, so it looks as if there won´t be much of a truce.

The Bush administration specifically warned Obama not to dignify the UN Human Rights Commission given that many members were totalitarian states that did not recognize human rights. All they will do is accuse the US of human rights violations. Once again the children (Obama and Hillary) learn that their parents do indeed know some things.

Gee, three days for Hamas to set up lots more booby traps, bring in more women and children for human shields, and re-arm.

Israel needs to stop "playing nice" and get this finished. Exterminate Hamas, and turn Gaza into a DMZ (complete with lots of mines and tunnel sensors)!!!!!!!

They´re tasked with protecting the United States from terrorists and keeping America´s biggest cities safe, but Homeland Security´s brief appears to be widening to include more global issues like climate change. [Snip] However, claims of ´mission-creep´ are now being hurled at the department which is attempting to redefine its role as one of emergency management than of protection and security against enemies of the state. Throughout it´s 13-year existence, there has been persistent criticisms the department is wasteful, ineffective and has been far from transparent in how the agency is run, and how money is spent on a

Health officials are investigating nine cases of muscle weakness or paralysis in Colorado children and whether the culprit might be a virus causing severe respiratory illness across the country. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday sent doctors an alert about the polio-like cases and said the germ--enterovirus 68--was detected in four out of eight of the sick children who had a certain medical test. The status of the ninth case is unclear. The virus can cause paralysis but other germs can, too. Health officials don´t know whether the virus caused any of the children´s arm and leg

Operation Shader is ready to go:
Britain buys 20 Tomahawk missiles
ready to strike IS today as SAS on

Britain has bought 20 Tomahawk missiles from the US in preparation for its bombing campaign against Islamic State. Costing £1million each, they are fired from submarines and can be computer-programmed to turn corners. They have already been fired in the Gulf by the US and are likely to be among the first weapons used by the British military in Operation Shader. The submarines loiter offshore before going to depth to fire the Tomahawks which can cover more than 850 miles, can be retargeted in flight and can loiter above a target for more than two hours.

The European Court of Human Rights will no longer be able to overrule British courts, under Conservative plans to be unveiled within days. Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, told The Telegraph that the Tories are ready to change the law to ensure that Britain is no longer “powerless” before the European court. After extensive deliberations, the Conservatives are ready to unveil their plans to scrap the Human Rights Act and ensure that the final decision on controversial legal cases is taken by Britain’s Supreme Court and not judges in Strasbourg, he said. The manifesto plans are expected to be disclosed

DONCASTER, United Kingdom--UKIP leader Nigel Farage has delivered his keynote speech in Doncaster today on the second day of UKIP´s annual conference. [Snip] "[UKIP] is not a protest vote... they´re voting for us because the establishment has failed them and their families... we are the party that most represents them... and their thoughts, hopes, and aspirations for the future". So instead of trying to just be critical, Farage was positive and upbeat, delivering more than just a string of complaints about the European Union and immigration. It was noteworthy from the media´s attitude to this event that they too understand that UKIP

Attorney General Eric Holder´s abrupt announcement that he intends to leave the Obama administration as soon as the president is able to find someone to take over for him was initiated by his doctor wife´s concerns about his health, a news report revealed on Thursday. Holder was rushed in an ambulance to a Washington, D.C. hospital in February after feeling faint and having a shortness of breath. [Snip] Politico Magazine reported on Thursday that ´under pressure´ from his wife, Sharon Malone, an obstetrician and gynecologist, Holder decided to make the jump now before Republicans potentially take over the Senate in

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund has divested from fossil fuels. We know this because it has been splashed all over the media--it got much prominence, for example, on BBC Radio 4´s Today programme--for all the world as if we ought to find the news interesting or surprising or momentous. But it is none of these things. "Rockefeller Brothers Fund divests from fossil fuels" is a story right up there with "dentist removes teeth" or "shark cruises ocean menacingly with fin poking above the water" or "masseuse cancels appointment on discovering that identity of mystery client is Al Gore." That´s because the Rockefeller Brothers Fund

For all the drama, today’s vote in the House of Commons will make very little difference to the military campaign now under way against Isil. [Snip] The United States has all the bombs and missiles it needs and is already being helped by a rather impressive list of allies: Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Together they have hit more than 200 targets, with more bombing expected soon. The coalition that Barack Obama has assembled is nothing short of extraordinary. Tony Blair spent months trying to persuade various Muslim countries to back--or, at least, not openly

GPs are increasingly handing out antibiotics that turn out to be useless, as up to half of courses of the drugs ´fail´ and result in further treatment, a study has found. Groundbreaking research has analysed 11m courses of antibiotics prescribed to British patients over the last 22 years covering the most common diseases areas including tonsilitis, pneumonia and ear infections. Scientists said the findings were ´bleak´ with one in six courses of antibiotics failing in 2012 but for some drugs this was more than one in two. [Snip] GPs have admitted prescribing antibiotics to ´get rid of´ patients.

Two more men were arrested in a terrorism investigation which saw nine people, including notorious preacher Anjem Choudary, detained on Thursday. [Snip] One of the men, aged 33 years, was arrested on suspicion of being a member of a banned group, or backing a banned terrorist group and supporting terrorism. The second, a 42-year-old, was arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. Both men are now in custody at a central London police station. This follows Thursday´s huge counter-terrorism operation in which nine people were arrested in a series of co-ordinated dawn raids. Notorious Islamist preacher Anjem Choudary, aged 47

Denmark will send seven F-16 fighter jets to Iraq as part of the U.S. coalition to dislodge Islamic State extremists, Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt said on Friday. She told a news conference she received an official request for assistance from the United States on Thursday evening. "The government is therefore ready to quickly send seven F-16 fighter jets to the operation," Thorning-Schmidt said. She said she expected the Danish parliament to approve the country´s participation next week, and the planes would start operating right away. The planes will serve only over Iraqi airspace, and not over Syria, she said.

Meghan McCain - the Hanoi Jane of
Environmentalism. Or: Why Conservatives
Shouldn´t Believe in ´Climate Change´
Breitbart London [UK], by James Delingpole    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/25/2014 7:24:00 PM     Post Reply
Have you ever wondered why conservatives don´t talk more often about nationalisation of industry, wealth redistribution, affirmative action, the need for higher taxes and more government intervention, Islamophobia, the glories of multiculturalism, the "war on women", and the urgent need to rein in economic growth in order to give the planet a more sustainable future? Me neither. Conservatives don´t talk about these things because they are idle leftist preoccupations which have no place in a political philosophy based on personal responsibility, liberty and empiricism. Which is why I´m a little puzzled by the latest outburst by Meghan McCain--daughter of US senator

Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum on Thursday criticized comments US Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) made earlier this month, in a speech that critics have said was unnecessarily confrontational toward a Middle Eastern Christian group. (snip) Cruz earned the ire of many conservatives for his speech to a group called "In Defense of Christians." During those remarks, Cruz made a point to say he would not support groups in the Middle East who are not pro-Israel.  He walked off the stage to a chorus of boos after eventually telling the crowd he wouldn´t "stand with" them if they did not "stand

Although 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue may be the most famous address in the country, that doesn’t mean everyone remembers it. At the Value Voters Summit today in Washington, D.C, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who was the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, mistakenly referred to the White House as being located at “1400 Pennsylvania Avenue.” “Don’t retreat. You reload with truth, which I know is an endangered species at 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue, anyway truth,” Palin said. “The media’s favorite president. He just can’t stop telling lies.” It doesn’t appear that a 1400 Pennsylvania Avenue NW actually exists–but the closest

Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

Of all the malfeasances of William Jefferson Clinton the one that would have most justified a removal from office was not the Monica hijinks, even with the attendant lying under oath and absurd parsings of the word “is,” but the pardoning of Marc Rich — the billionaire international commodities trader and mammoth contributor to, er, Clinton. Luckily for Bill, this action occurred on the last day of his presidency, making anything like impeachment moot, even though it was an example of political corruption that would have made Boss Tweed envious. For those who don’t recall the details, here’s Wikipedia: In 1983

With the mid-term elections weeks away, many conservatives are confronting a difficult choice. Assuming there are no solid conservatives on the ballot, do we vote for establishment candidates? Or not vote at all? The reasons why some conservatives are on the fence or planning not to vote are well known. (And Democrats are loving every minute of it!) “Establishment Republicans have attacked us and I refuse to support any of them.” “I’m sick of RINO’s. They’re no better than the Democrats.” “Other than a few strong conservatives, the rest of the GOP stands for nothing.” I share these frustrations. The conversation in my head goes something

If I were a scientist, I´d stick to the Goldman Sachs principle: bet on both sides. "Believe in science, believe in God" seems to cover all the possibilities and gives you the best chance for a cheery afterlife. For a time, it was thought that astrophysicist Stephen Hawking had also left a tiny gap in his credo window for a magical deity. However, he has now come out and declared that there is no God. (Snip...) "Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now science offers a more convincing explanation."

We’re being had. Again. For six years, President Obama has endeavored to will the country into accepting two pillars of his alternative national-security reality. First, he claims to have dealt decisively with the terrorist threat, rendering it a disparate series of ragtag jayvees. Second, he asserts that the threat is unrelated to Islam, which is innately peaceful, moderate, and opposed to the wanton “violent extremists” who purport to act in its name. Now, the president has been compelled to act against a jihad that has neither ended nor been “decimated.” The jihad, in fact, has inevitably intensified under his counterfactual

Milton Wolf, the tea party candidate who battled Sen.

But there’s a big catch: To win Wolf’s endorsement, Orman must first agree to caucus with the Senate GOP if he were to defeat Roberts in the general election. The two men were scheduled to meet Friday afternoon at Orman’s house in Olathe, Kansas., just outside of Kansas City, according to two people familiar with the matter. One person said Orman’s team sought the meeting but there was no
