Watch live: Israeli troops pull back
amid new Gaza ceasefire attempt

Telegraph [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/4/2014 4:08:11 AM

Israel says it will unilaterally hold fire in most of the Gaza Strip on Monday to facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid and allow some of the hundreds of thousands of Palestinians displaced by an almost four-week-old war to go home. An Israeli defence official said the ceasefire, from 10am to 5pm (8am to 3pm BST), would apply everywhere but areas of the southern town of Rafah, where ground forces have intensified assaults after three soldiers died in a Hamas ambush there on Friday. The announcement follows unusually strong criticism from Washington at the apparent shelling of a UN-run shelter

Comments:
BST = British Summer Time, five hours ahead of US Eastern.

4 AM--clouds of smoke already evident.

As for the UN-run shelter incident, it seems suspicious that sweets were being handed out to children lined up at the gate of the shelter as three terrorists rode by on motorbikes and were taken out by Israeli fire. Islamic terrorists love death.

P.S. Use the full page feature bottom right to see more clearly where hits are made. There are usually tell-tale pale gray clouds of smoke drifting with the wind--probably concrete pulverized to its original cement. Such clouds, with the occasional billowing black clouds of smoke, are usually, but not always just under the horizon.

Different views may be seen as the camera operator(s) twist to find the latest target announced by the sound of a missile, rocket or mortar.

I think it´s good for Israel to get the innocents out of that region, I pray they can get them all out of there and THEN they can fight the good fight against those who have repeatedly vowed to wipe Israel off the map and have consistently attacked them for years and years. It´s time for Israel to stop them.

First the EU came for our incandescent light bulbs but we said nothing because we thought saving energy was a good idea - and anyway, we didn´t realise until it was too late how much brighter, warmer and nicer the old ones were compared with the flickery, mercury-filled eco ones. Then the EU came for our menthol cigarettes but we didn´t complain because we only used to smoke those when we were teenagers and have since given up.

Al-Shabab names new leader

Somalia´s Islamist group al-Shabab has named Ahmad Umar as successor to former leader Ahmed Abdi Godane, who was killed in a US air strike. The group announced the move in an online statement, vowing to take revenge for Godane´s death. Somalia´s authorities earlier put the country on alert for possible retaliatory attacks by al-Shabab. The alert came as the US confirmed the death of Godane in air strikes south of Mogadishu on Monday night. ´Bitter consequences´ Little is known about Ahmad Umar, who is also known as Abu Ubaidah.

Barack Obama´s ´disastrous presidency´

Barack Obama´s presidency continues to be degraded and destroyed. The beheading of a second American journalist by Isil (for dealing with which Obama recently said he has "no strategy"), coupled with Vladimir Putin´s continued provocations in Ukraine, only reinforce an image of impotence and malaise. So this should be the perfect moment for the Republican Party to begin the campaign for a new direction. Fortunately for them, in less than 60 days the Congressional mid-term elections will be held. And though Obama won´t officially be on the ballot, every member of the House of Representatives will be--along with one third

In an interview at the Nato summit, Philip Hammond, the Foreign Secretary, assured us that Russia would not be a threat to Eastern European countries which were members of Nato. [Snip] Once Barack Obama – on whom the credibility of Nato depends – allowed the Assad regime to cross his portentous “red line” on chemical weapons, no pronouncement from a Western power was going to count for much among the lunatic gangs and tin pot autocrats of the new world order. Now, Nato confronts not a cohesive ideological Soviet power bloc but a free-for-all. This isn’t a new Cold War,

How our allies in Kuwait and

Telegraph [UK], by Andrew Gilligan    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/6/2014 5:52:49 AM     Post Reply
In the great jihadi funding bazaar that is the Gulf state of Kuwait, there’s a terror finance option for every pocket, from the private foundations dealing in tens of millions to the more retail end of the market. Give enough for 50 sniper bullets (50 dinars, about £110), promises the al-Qaeda and Islamic State-linked cleric tweeting under the name “jahd bmalk”, and you will earn “silver status”. Donate 100 dinars to buy eight badly needed mortar rounds, and he’ll make you a “gold status donor”. As the jihadi funders hand out loyalty cards, the West has belatedly realised that some of

The U.S. State Department is attempting to fight back against terror group ISIS with a graphic video that aims to dissuade would-be jihadists from joining the terror group. The Obama administration’s counter propaganda video starts with the phrase: Run. Do not walk to ISIS land, according to CNN. Then a body is thrown off a cliff. In an attempt to use social media to target and prevent would-be jihadists from joining the group, the video was posted on a youtube channel and is entitled ‘Welcome to the ´Islamic State´ land. In a web campaign called ´Think again, turn away´ the

The US has said it has no plans for any military co-operation with Iran to fight against Islamic State (IS) militants in Iraq. A US state department spokeswoman said Washington would also not "share intelligence" with Iran. Iranian sources earlier told the BBC Iran´s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had authorised one of his top commanders for such contacts. But Iran´s foreign ministry also denied the report as incorrect. Iran has traditionally opposed US involvement in Iraq, an Iranian ally. "We don´t co-ordinate military action or share intelligence with Iran," state department spokeswoman Marie Harf said.

If there were any doubts that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney wants back into the public spotlight, an opinion essay published Thursday afternoon castigating President Obama for shrinking America´s military footprint should dispel them. The Republican Party´s 2012 presidential candidate opened up with both barrels on the White House, warning that ´bullying, invasion and regional wars´ will ultimately become the norm if the U.S. withdraws from its historical role as the sole superpower capable of knitting together the world´s fragile detente. ´The most ludicrous excuse for shrinking our military derives from the president’s thinking, he charged: "Things are much less

A new wing of global terror group al Qaeda which has formed in India, could be set to target the United States. It comes after the group, who have been named Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) released a video earlier this week announcing their formation. In it Al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri says they will ´raise the flag of jihad´ across the ´Indian subcontinent´. Now it has emerged that the group, who were responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks on New York´s World Trade Centre, is targeting the United States once again.

WASHINGTON--A charter aircraft flying from the US airbase at Bagram in Afghanistan to Dubai was re-routed to Bandar Abbas, Iran, on Friday due to "a bureaucratic issue," a US State Department official said. "A Fly Dubai charter plane flying from Bagram Air Field to Dubai was re-routed to Bandar Abbas, Iran because of a bureaucratic issue today," the official said. "Contrary to press reports, this plane was not forced down by the Iranian military," the official added.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry issued a dramatic call to arms against militants from the self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) today, urging world leaders to join a ´core coalition´ to end their murderous rampage through Iraq, but ruled out putting ´boots on the ground´.

President Barack Obama dodged a question on Friday about whether American troops will be part of a new NATO rapid response force in Eastern Europe set up to warn Russia that Western nations could quickly mobilize if an allied country in the region were to come under attack. NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the new unit would send a clear message to potential aggressors in a thinly veiled warning to Vladimir Putin. [Snip] But when Obama was asked point-blank if he will send troops, he talked only of financial assistance. Great Britain has signaled a desire to send

Barack Obama stands apart from other modern American Presidents in many ways. (snip)the widespread view that he is the coolest President ever. This supernal coolness is not new. In his autobiography, Dreams From My Father, the President wrote that in his teenage years “I tried my best to be cool at all times” (p. 82). However, leaving aside the contradiction inherent in trying to be cool, it is possible that Barack Obama’s teenage experiences may have left him psychologically, and perhaps even neurologically, incapable of performing fundamental tasks of his current position. Much of the appeal of coolness is its

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee on Friday said new allegations that U.S. commandos were ordered to “stand down” during the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, aren’t supported by findings from House and Senate investigators. Five commandos who survived the Benghazi attack, which claimed the lives of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, made the allegation in a new book, accusing the CIA station chief of delaying a rescue mission. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-Md.) said lawmakers never came across evidence indicating the station chief had told his team to “stand down” and abort a

The Internal Revenue Service has lost emails from five more employees who are part of congressional probes into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, the tax service disclosed Friday. The tax agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings. On Friday, the IRS issued a report to Congress saying the agency also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe,

Last Wednesday, at a ceremony to appoint Texas lawyer Shaarik Zafar to be special representative to Muslim communities, Secretary of State John Kerry said it was the United States’ Biblical “responsibility” to “confront climate change,” including to protect “vulnerable Muslim majority counties.” Kerry said Scripture, in particular the Book of Genesis, makes clear it is our “duty” to protect the planet and we should look at Muslim countries “with a sense of stewardship of earth,” adding, “That responsibility comes from God.” And here you thought all along that “Uncle Joe” was the resident crazy in the Obama administration.

LAS VEGAS — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday the U.S. should become what she called the world’s 21st-century clean energy superpower, during remarks resembling both a campaign speech and a call to action at the annual National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas. Clinton cast the threat of global climate change as real, and “the most consequential, urgent, sweeping collection of challenges” faced by the nation and the world. “The data is unforgiving,” the former New York senator and first lady said to a standing room crowd of more than 800 people at a Las Vegas

According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, Bush´s inner circle of "advisers have been quietly spreading the word that they should avoid committing to other possible presidential candidates until he decides on his own course after the November election" and have been actively dismissing "speculation that the former Florida governor has ruled out a 2016 run."
