Watch: Mapping Hamas´s
Deadly Rocket Arsenal

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/6/2014 8:43:01 AM

Is the Gaza War another skirmish between Israel and the Arabs of Gaza, or are there regional factors at play here? In the video below, Arutz Sheva contributor Mark Langfan explains in the detail the rocket threat from Gaza, and claims that the conflict is a proxy war between two opposing de facto alliances of nations.

Comments:
(The above is the entire text.]

Those rockets Hamas is firing into Israel? The small diameter six-footer commonly used 18 months ago, are now, thanks to Iran, being replaced by a missile one foot in diameter and twenty feet long--capable of carrying a fuel air explosive warhead. That warhead is known as "the poor man´s nuclear bomb"--and it can reach 70% of Israel´s packed population and 80% of its industry.

This short video really drives home the extreme gravity of Israel´s position. Highly recommended for expanded understanding.

Baroness Warsi’s resignation
won’t promote peace in Gaza
Telegraph [UK], by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2014 8:10:12 AM     Post Reply
It is rare for a minister to resign from the Government on a matter of principle; so Baroness Warsi’s decision to step down from her Foreign Office post in protest at the UK’s policy on Gaza merits greater attention than usual. She alleges that the even-handed position adopted by Britain towards the two combatants is “morally indefensible”. This suggests that Lady Warsi wanted far greater condemnation of Israel than has been forthcoming from David Cameron and his ministers. But how would that have helped matters? [Snip] She might have been on surer ground had she been equally condemnatory of Hamas

Official Denies Netanyahu-Kerry
Phone Call Was ´Cut Off´
Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Ari Soffer    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2014 8:03:46 AM     Post Reply
An unnamed "senior Israeli official" has claimed that a call between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and US Secretary of State John Kerry was cut off on Sunday because Netanyahu had to call a "bereaved family" before the funeral of their son--presumably a soldier killed fighting in Gaza. [Snip] Walla! news´ diplomatic correspondent Amir Tibon claimed in a tweet that the prime minister and Kerry actually continued their conversation on Tuesday night, two days later. Previous reports had simply claimed that a call between the two had been abruptly cut off mid-way, with State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki admitting to reporters

Boris Johnson will stand for Parliament –

Yahoo! Whizzer! Chips galore! Boris is going to run for Parliament in 2015! He announced it in a classically Boris way today: gallons of charm, self-effacing, a cheeky grin, a “golly-I-know-I-said-I-probably-wouldn’t-but…” and then--wahey!--the promise that he probably would! You could find Boris standing over a dead body with a smoking gun and he’d still be able to convince us that it was “nothing to do with me, old chap.” And so, with his return to national politics, after years spent in the wilderness of national TV, Boris brings hope for good humour and red-meat Tory policies.

Barack Obama is bafflingly

Barack Obama is having a big "jawl" at the White House for 45 African heads of state this week, as well as hosting three-day summit designed to kick-start a more fruitful relationship between American and African businesses, but questions are already being asked whether this unprecedented get-together will create more than a lot of Washington DC traffic jams. It might seem churlish to criticise any effort to create a "win-win relationship for Africa, where US technology and finance helps release the latent potential of a continent which is home to six of the world´s fastest-growing economies. But if it´s such

US investment in Africa is fighting extremism there, US Secretary of State John Kerry has told the BBC. In an interview with BBC´s HARDtalk, Mr Kerry said stability from business projects was countering extremist ideologies and militant movements. He spoke as more than 40 African heads of state gathered in Washington at the first US-Africa Leaders´ Summit. Earlier on Tuesday, US companies pledged to invest $14bn (£8.3bn) in the continent. Mr Kerry told the BBC´s Zeinab Badawi that US investment in Africa was developing infrastructure, bringing wealth, and improving the standard of living of many Africans.

Gaza conflict: Kerry urges
broader Israel-Palestinian talks
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/6/2014 2:04:33 AM     Post Reply
US Secretary of State John Kerry has urged Israel and the Palestinians to take advantage of the Gaza truce to move towards broader negotiations. Mr Kerry told the BBC the situation could concentrate minds on the need to negotiate a "two-state solution". A 72-hour humanitarian truce is holding in Gaza, halting a four-week conflict that has claimed more than 1,900 lives. Israel and the Palestinians have sent delegations to Cairo to discuss the possibility of a longer-term truce. [Snip] Mr Kerry, in an interview with Zeinab Badawi for BBC HARDtalk, said the US fully supported Israel´s right to defend itself

After Edward Snowden, US government

The US government fears that the US intelligence agencies have a second mole who is feeding top secret information to journalists, it has been reported. The existence of a second high-level leaker--separate from the former defence contractor Edward Snowden--has been mooted in intelligence and journalistic circles for some weeks, but was confirmed by US officials, according to a report by CNN. [Snip] The documents, which were not sourced to the Snowden files, showed that the number of people on the US “no fly” had increased more than ten-fold during Barack Obama’s tenure in the White House, potentially deepening popular concerns

Netanyahu and Kerry´s Phone
Call ´Mysteriously´ Cut Off

A phone call between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was mysteriously disconnected on Sunday, Channel 2 News reports. According to the report, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki admitted to reporters on Tuesday that the call was disconnected, though she said it was due to a “communications issue”. Psaki did, however, say that the two have not spoken since the phone call was cut off. “Their phone call was cut off,” she said, adding when asked whether she thinks Netanyahu hung up on Kerry, “Sometimes calls get cut off...it was a brief call, is what

Baroness Token Resigns.

Saaeda Warsi--aka Baroness Warsi; aka Baroness Token--has announced her resignation from the Cabinet in a style entirely becoming her class, intelligence and sophistication: on Twitter. [Snip] Her departure will no doubt come as an enormous relief to the more traditional Conservatives in her party, many of whom felt that Warsi´s appointment to a Cabinet post--even one as meaningless as "Minister for Faith and Communities" had less to do with her brilliance, integrity and raw talent than it did to Cameron´s desperation to get his first Asian Muslim female on the books. One of them once described Baroness Token to me

´Pay £200 to see the doctor so you

Robert Winston claims patients should
be charged for treatment to stop taking*

Patients should be charged £200 to see their GP so they ´learn to appreciate the NHS´, fertility expert Robert Winston has said. It comes after calls for patients to pay a £10-a-month fee to use health services, and also be charged £20 for every night they stay in hospital. But Labour peer Lord Winston said the actual value of a hospital was much greater--and the charge would have to be much higher to make it more ´realistic´ for those who do not appreciate the cost. He told the Sun: ´The actual value of a hospital appointment is about £200.

Report: Violence Against
Hamas in Gaza

Palestinian Arab sources said Tuesday that Gaza residents attacked Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri Saturday evening, near the Shifa Hospital. Abu Zuhri had arrived at the hospital for an interview with a news outlet. The residents blamed Hamas for the death of family members and for destruction of their homes. Armed Hamas terrorists from the Izzedine al-Kassam Brigades extricated Abu Zuri and arrested the angry residents. Arabic website vetogate.com said that reporters in Gaza are well aware of the incident but are afraid to report it, because Hamas´s security agency could go after them if they do.

ATLANTA — In the early 2000s, a young researcher at the Centers for Disease Control named Greg Millett set out to solve an epidemiological mystery. Nobody could explain why black Americans, particularly black gay men, had such high rates of HIV infection compared to the rest of the population. How were they putting themselves in so much danger? What were they doing differently from everyone else? Millett began with a survey of the published research, but that only seemed to raise more questions. Study after study seemed to arrive at the same conclusion: Black gay men take fewer risks in the

President Obama returned from his full-time job as the Democratic Party’s fundraiser-in-chief to host today’s U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit. As he winged his way back to Washington from Kansas City aboard Air Force One, the president sat for an interview with editors of The Economist. The interview was pure Barack Obama, and it revealed him for what he is — an intellectually agile partisan fantasist. According to Mr. Obama, there really haven’t been that many problems, but those we may be experiencing are the fault not of his policies or leadership, but of the fact that he continues to have to contend

Once upon a time an American family’s home was their castle and the bigger the better, but growing concerns about meeting mortgage payments and the environmental impact of large houses has helped fuel a new movement of people who are happy to live small. The Tiny House Movement is a growing group of people who are happy to downsize the space that they live in and enjoy simplified lives as a result. While the average American home is around 2600 square feet, the typical small or tiny house is around 100-400 square feet. Scroll down for video -Large homes come

Obamacare plans have shrunk payments to physicians so much that some doctors say they won’t be able to afford to accept Obamacare coverage, NPR reports. Many of the eight million sign-ups in Obamacare exchanges nationwide already face more limited choices for physicians and hospitals than those in the private insurance market. But with low physician reimbursement rates, the problem could get even worse. For a typical quick patient visit, Dr. Doug Gerard, a Connecticut internist, told NPR a private insurer would pay $100 while Medicare would pay around $80. But Obamacare plans are more likely to pay closer to $80, which Gerard

I have been waiting intently for that catalogue of much vaunted accomplishments which Islam has bequeathed both to America and the world — benefits that have been chirped about ad nauseum by Barack Obama for years. But since this, like all his other promises, has been left dangling, I have decided to compile my own list for you and take the pressure off his wearied brow that best serves America on the links. I assure you that this list is far less than exhaustive: 1. Hummus. I hate hummus. 2. Design modifications to the Twin Towers. 3. Animal husbandry (literally)

A Republican congressman who was confronted on the floor Friday night by House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi over his immigration comments told Fox News that the former speaker was "visibly shaken" during the encounter -- but said he´s "not going to put up with this." Pelosi lashed out at Rep. Tom Marino, R-Pa., after he accused Democrats of neglecting the immigration issue when they controlled the White House and Congress in 2009 and 2010. She could be seen walking over to him and pointing her finger at him -- he later said Pelosi called him "insignificant." Speaking to Fox News on Monday, Marino

Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election. “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling.

Rep. Michele Bachmann has suggested the federal government levy a 100 percent tax on money illegal immigrants send back to their home countries as a way of remedying the border crisis. In addition to building a secure, well-lit, fully staffed border fence, the Minnesota Republican said there should be “a 100 percent tax on remittances, the money that illegal aliens send back to these countries.” “Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, those countries are laughing at us because they’re making money with their corrupt governments in conjunction with these international criminal cartels, they’re all making money and

Sen. Pat Roberts fended off an aggressive challenger Tuesday in the Kansas Republican primary, dealing another blow to a national tea party movement that has targeted longtime Washington incumbents. Milton Wolf, 43, a Leawood radiologist making his first run for public office, failed to pull the upset in the race against Roberts, 78, whose political dates to the late 1960s, when he was a congressional aide. After surviving the primary, Roberts is a huge favorite to win his fourth, six-year term in November. Republicans enjoy a nearly 20 percentage-point advantage among registered voters and have won every U.S. Senate race
