Israeli army announces total retreat
from Gaza ahead of ceasefire

Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/5/2014 1:01:07 AM

The Israeli military says all its ground troops will have pulled out of the Gaza Strip by the start of the ceasefire agreed to by both sides in the bloody conflict. Lt. Col. Peter Lerner says the withdrawal will be completed by 8am local time (0500 GMT) on Tuesday. Lerner says the withdrawal is going forward after Israel completed the destruction of 32 cross-border tunnels meant to allow Islamic militants to carry out attacks against Israel. The ceasefire is meant to end nearly four weeks of fighting between Israel and Hamas, which has claimed 1,900 Palestinian lives – most of them civilians. The

Fingers crossed that all goes well for Israel.

Well, thanks to the now obvious terrorist sympathies of the loathsome MSM, the "world community", including the US, can now pour even more "international aid" ( = taxpayer funded) into Gaza so they can start rebuilding those tunnels.

The problem with this is that it once again gives Hamas time to rearm: look at the tunnels they built last round with OUR $, supposed to go to schools and hospitals!

FTA: “ . . . which has claimed 1,900 Palestinian lives – most of them civilians.”

Does Hamas have a defined military? How do you determine if a civilian is not involved in the hostilities or a member/supporter of Hamas? The Palestinians raise their children to hate and they groom them to kill Jews from a very young age. I would also imagine that the press feels quite comfortable with the notion that if a Palestinian is not a known Hamas militant, he must be a civilian. What is certain is not one of the 1,900 would have died if weren’t for the actions of Hamas.

Brand this phrase, "total retreat" into your minds, please. It was intentionally used in the headline of this article by the Ass. Press, probably to show their contempt for Israel and its IDF.

It is this kind of subtle propaganda that is intended to swing our thinking. Other examples include, "unarmed teenager" Trayvon Martin; "youths" in the Paris suburbs; "racist" critics of Obama policies; etc. Highlight and rail against it whenever you encounter it.

BTW, Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi still rots in a Mexican jail! A single phone call from any one of the three following (detestable) men could have him back home forthwith: Obama, Holder, Hagel. [Too bad that their motto is "Semper Infidelis"]

When the rocket barrage begins again within the 72 hour window (and you know it will) I hope Israel has every fighter jet in its arsenal fueled and loaded with ordinance. I´m sure there are a few hamas goons still standing around with wide grins on their faces, thinking that they have outfoxed the foxes.

A British man convicted and jailed for Islamic terrorism in 1999 has, in a lengthy and indulgent feature with Sky News, blamed violent computer games for “dehumanised” young Britons going abroad to fight for the Islamic state. The twelve minute report – which showed at regular intervals yesterday on Sky News – features a number of recorded interviews with British Muslims expressing their opinions on the reasons for the radicalisation of young muslims. One, a rapper, blames ‘injustice’ and cites Muslims in the UK who are so distrustful of the government and media they don’t even believe the political executions

ISTANBUL - Turkey would welcome senior figures from Egypt´s outlawed Muslim Brotherhood after they were asked to leave Qatar under pressure from other Gulf Arab states, Turkish media quoted President Tayyip Erdogan as saying late on Monday. A senior Brotherhood official based in London said on Saturday that Qatar had asked seven senior figures from the movement to leave the country after its neighbors pressed it to stop backing the Islamists.

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) has released a video of an imam in Gaza who was filmed during a Friday sermon while brandishing a gun and saying that weapons were the Palestinian Arabs´ only means to establish a caliphate. MEMRI noted that the cleric, Sheik Iyad Abu Funun, was released to the Palestinian Authority-assigned areas of Judea and Samaria as part of the Shalit prisoner swap deal in 2011. He was arrested again, and was sentenced to complete his 10-year term in prison. In July 2013, after threatening to go on a hunger strike, he was released and deported to

Scottish referendum: A decision that

Telegraph [UK], by Editorial    Original Article

Last night, David Cameron made his final appeal to Scottish voters to remain part of the Union. In a passionate speech in Aberdeen, he sought to spell out to Scots the full scale of the awful and momentous choice that faces them--whether or not to break up the country “that all of us call home”. The Prime Minister has been accused by the Yes campaign of “scaremongering”: but as he said, it is his duty to set out the true consequences of such a vote, and to explain how disastrous it would be not just for Britain, but for Scots

A powerful bomb explosion has rocked the Afghan capital Kabul, sending a plume of smoke over the city and shaking buildings, reports say. Interior ministry sources said the bomb went off near the Supreme Court building on the airport road. One report said a siren alert had been set off at the US embassy, not far from the scene. There has been no information about any casualties. The blast comes amid uncertainty over disputed presidential elections.

MANILA--The Philippines has evacuated more than 12,000 people from around the foot of its most active volcano as the crater glows red and authorities warn of a possible eruption. Mount Mayon, known for its near-perfect cone shape in the coconut-growing central Bicol region, has recorded a series of recent quakes and rockfalls, indicating a possible eruption within weeks. "We are now raising the alert status of Mayon Volcano from alert level 2 to 3," Renato Solidum, head of the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs), said on Tuesday.

PARIS--US Secretary of State John Kerry refused be drawn into a "back and forth" with Iran on Monday following Tehran´s assertion that it had rebuffed a US request to coordinate a response to the Islamic State jihadist group. "I´m not going to get into a back and forth. I don´t want to do that. I don´t think that is constructive, frankly," Kerry told reporters at the US ambassador´s residence in Paris after an international conference on Iraq attended by 26 countries.

Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, on Monday said his country had rejected a U.S. request for cooperation against the “Islamic State” (IS) because Washington has “dirty hands”. “Right from the start, the United States asked through its ambassador in Iraq whether we could cooperate against [IS],” Khamenei said in a statement on his official website which was quoted by Al Arabiya. “I said no, because they have dirty hands,” said Khamenei, who has the final say on all matters of state in Iran. “Secretary of State (John Kerry) personally asked (Iranian counterpart) Mohammad Javad Zarif and he rejected the request,” said Khamenei,

David Cameron just delivered a masterclass in speech-giving in front of a pro-UK audience in Aberdeen in Scotland. In case you missed it, you can read the full text here. [Snip] He touched on almost every major issue related to the Scottish referendum debate without labouring any points. It makes you wonder why the opposition to the ´Yes´ campaign was primarily run from Labour HQ, which has consistently failed to deliver a solid message, leading to the precarious position our union finds itself in with just 3 days to go until Scots go to the polls.

Former President George W. Bush put together a 48 member coalition for the Iraq War in 2003. 40 of those members supported military operations and 37 provided some number troops. In April 2003, the list was updated to include 49 countries, though it was reduced to 48 after Costa Rica objected to its inclusion. Of the 48 states on the list, three contributed troops to the invasion force (the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland). An additional 37 countries provided some number of troops to support military operations after the invasion was complete. Despite these numbers the liberal media continues to push the lie

There’s a lot of competition for Barack Obama’s biggest lie. The man who could assure the American public with a straight face over thirty times that they could keep their doctor under his health plan, when he knew that to be completely false, is one hellluva fibber. But execrable as that serial prevarication may have been, it doesn’t hold a proverbial candle to his most recent whopper — that the Islamic State is not Islamic — not to mention its corollary, or perhaps subsidiary lie, that real religions do not indulge in murder. Islam has been doing that pretty much straight

Is a mutiny happening around President Obama? It appears possible that the president may not have made two of his most recent decisions with complete free will. The announcement that he would delay his immigration initiative until after the election and his formal announcement that the United States would take military action against the Islamic State could have been coerced. Maybe Democratic leaders in Congress and a few members of the Obama team have had it. Could it be that, after President Obama briefed Democrats in Congress on the immigration plan, they balked? Maybe the president was told that, if he
