Conflicting reports on whether Hamas
military chief Deif killed in IDF strike

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Staff*

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/20/2014 12:46:15 PM

Media on Wednesday afternoon appeared to spread conflicting reports over the fate of Muhammad Deif, the head of Hamas´s armed wing, who was possibly killed in an IDF airstrike on Tuesday night. Fox News quoted Israeli officials as saying that Deif was believed to have been killed in the airstrike. Previously, Israel had admitted to striking his home in an attempt to assassinate him but did not comment on whether he had been killed or not. Hamas, however, denied that Deif was killed. In a televised address on Wednesday evening a spokesperson said that Israel had ´failed´ to kill Muhammad

Comments:
*with Maariv Hashavua and Yasser Okbi

Hamas also announced it would attack Ben Gurion Airport, warning people not to fly into Israel after 0600 tomorrow (Thursday). If that turns out to be true, then it seems the extra ceasefires gave Hamas time and opportunity to receive stronger, more accurate rockets--or put a terrorist team in place.

Hey Israel, here is a target for you:

"On its Al-Aksa television station, Hamas called for Gaza residents to attend the funeral of Deif´s wife and son on Wednesday afternoon."

"Daddy, what did YOU do in the Great Climate War?" "Well, son.

Former CIA Officer: UK Multiculturalism
Created Homegrown Radicalism
Breitbart TV, by Ian Hanchett    Original Article

Former CIA covert operations officer Mike Baker argued that the United Kingdom’s embrace of diversity and multiculturalism is responsible for the problem of homegrown Islamic extremist terrorism in the country on Thursday’s broadcast of “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “[The UK] chose this path of diversity. So people coming into the country they were told, ´Celebrate your own culture. You don’t have to fit in, you don’t have to mix in. We want you to be diverse; we want you to celebrate who you are and where you come from.´ It’s created this mess at this point” he said. He added “it is a serious problem.

As the IDF rotates out reserve soldiers in Operation Protective Edge, now in its 45th day, some of the troops being released decided to thank Israeli citizens for their outpouring of support and donations with an uplifting music video. The video, which features the popular song "The Best Day of My Life" by the US band American Authors, was filmed by "Armored Infantry Brigade 360 Unit 3." "After 32 days of miluim (reserve duty), we wanted to thank all those who helped us throughout that time and made each day a much nicer day," wrote the soldiers in the description of the video, which was uploaded to YouTube on Monday.

An NHS doctor from east London who was previously accused of kidnapping Western journalists in Syria may hold the key to identifying the jihadi who beheaded James Foley, intelligence sources have disclosed. Shajul Islam was arrested and charged with kidnapping a British journalist, John Cantlie, in 2012 but was released after his trial collapsed when Mr Cantlie was unable to give evidence. He had always protested his innocence, saying he went to Syria to use his medical skills to treat victims of the civil war. His brother Razul, 21, also travelled to Syria and is believed to be fighting with the Islamic State

Why are White House officials and the Pentagon briefing on a failed raid to save James Foley, the journalist murdered by his fundamentalist captors in Syria? One downside is obvious. It is an admission of failure. [Snip] There is good reason why most special forces – including our SAS – keep operations secret. Now, the US has tipped of Isil that its special forces are already conducting operations in Syria. The element of surprise is diluted, if not lost altogether. And what about the hostages still being held? Several have been released in return for ransoms. Each one is now

A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official last Wednesday declared that his organization has made a "political decision" to support Arab terrorists "slaughtering" Jews living in Judea, Samaria and eastern Jerusalem. Jibril Rajoub, head of the PA Sports Authority and Deputy Secretary of the Fatah Central Committee, made the statements on the independent Palestinian Arab TV channel Awdah. Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) exposed and translated the interview. "OK, brother, here is the occupation, am I stopping you from slaughtering a settlement? No one is stopping anyone...our political decision is resistance in the occupied territories in order to bring an end to the occupation

David Cameron cut short his holiday to return to Downing Street and oversee the response after the horrific video was posted online. Speaking to reporters in Number 10, Mr Cameron said it seemed "increasingly likely" that a British citizen was the killer. "Let me condemn the barbaric and brutal act that has taken place and let´s be clear what this act is - it is an act of murder, and murder without any justification," he said. "We have not identified the individual responsible, but from what we have seen it looks increasingly likely that it is a British citizen.

Simcha Goldin, father of fallen soldier Second Lieutenant Hadar Goldin, has responded to news that one of the senior Hamas terrorists eliminated in an early-morning airstrike in Gaza was responsible for the attack which killed his son. Raed al-Attar was killed along with Mohammed Abu Shamalah and Mohammed Barhum in the pre-dawn IAF strike, representing a serious blow to Hamas´s military command in southern Gaza. Attar is believed to have coordinated an attack against IDF forces in Fatah on August 1, breaching a 24-hour humanitarian ceasefire, in which two soldiers were killed and Hadar was abducted. Goldin was declared dead

Barack Obama is discovering--rather belatedly--precisely what is involved in being president of the United States. [Snip] He now has a full-blown, world-threatening foreign crisis in which the decisions that he makes from one minute to the next might result in immediate mass slaughter, a prolonged war or a gradual de-escalation of the conflict--or possibly all three in progressive stages. At the same moment, bizarrely, he is facing a domestic upheaval of staggering proportions: the return of riots and racially based violence in the urban streets of a kind which his very election as president was supposed to have made a

The fanatic who beheaded an American journalist was last night named as one of a gang of British jihadis known as ‘The Beatles’. As a massive manhunt was launched, a former hostage said he believed the masked Islamic State maniac was a Londoner he had known as ‘John’. The security services are also close to establishing the identity of the killer who cut James Foley’s throat in a horrific propaganda video. Said to be a senior Islamic State operative, he was trusted earlier this year to negotiate a hostage exchange.

The armed wing of Hamas announced Thursday that three of its senior commanders were killed in a pre-dawn Israeli air strike in Rafah in the southern Gaza Strip. Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades in a statement identified the leaders as Mohammed Abu Shamalah, Raed al-Atar and Mohammed Barhum. Emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said eight people were killed in the strike. Witnesses said a four-storey family home was completely destroyed in a series of air strikes. The airstrike was carried out based on intelligence provided by the Shabak (Israel Security Agency), which led to the identification of two central Hamas figures.

UKIP leader Nigel Farage has called on Britain´s Prime Minister David Cameron to take a stand on the Islamic State and strip UK nationals who are fighting abroad of their citizenship and cancel passports using the little-known Foreign Enlistment Act of 1870. The move would bring the United Kingdom into line with close ally Australia, whose Prime Minister Tony Abbott has sworn “to do our damndest” to ensure “trained killer… returning Jihadists” would never be allowed to return to Australia. UKIP leader Farage said in a press release today that; “in choosing to quit the UK to fight abroad, [UK

President Barack Obama reacted to the on-camera slaying of photojournalist James Foley for five minutes on Wednesday, telling a global audience that ´when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.´ Minutes later he began a five-hour round at Farm Neck Golf Course on Martha´s Vineyard for his seventh visit to the links, so far, during a vacation that began August 9. The decision brought a chorus of condemnation from TV commentators, journalists, conservative partisans and Twitter denizens – and even an unintentional slap from the left-leaning New York Times.

In July, after Germany trounced Brazil 7–1 in the semifinal match of the World Cup—including a first-half stretch in which the Brazilian soccer squad gave up an astonishing five goals in 19 minutes—a sports commentator wrote: “This was not a team losing. It was a dream dying.” These words could equally describe what has become of Barack Obama’s foreign policy since his second inauguration. The president, according to the infatuated view of his political aides and media flatterers, was supposed to be playing o jogo bonito, the beautiful game—ending wars, pressing resets, pursuing pivots, and restoring America’s good name abroad.

When it comes to combatting ISIS, the Obama administration has precious few successes to talk about. So today it touted a failure: U.S. Special Operations forces staged an unsuccessful operation this summer to rescue photojournalist James Foley and other Americans being held in Syria by Islamic State militants, according to senior Obama administration officials. The attempt, involving several dozen U.S. commandos, one of whom was injured in a fierce firefight with the militants, was the first known U.S. ground operation in Syria since the country’s descent into civil war. It came after at least six European hostages freed by the

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) suggested that Republican candidates in this year´s midterm elections should run on granting a pathway to citizenship for all of the country´s illegal immigrants. Ryan, who had reportedly been working behind the scenes with Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) to get House Republicans to support a broader immigration bill, said that he was "having problems" convincing conservatives to support immigration reform, which he said was "very important." In a Wednesday interview with Bloomberg News, Ryan said he supported a "path to legalization" for all of the country´s illegal immigrants.

It turns out that there are some good reasons why the former Governor and GOP Presidential nominee is allowing his name to be circulated as a potential candidate in 2016. Some of those good reasons can be found in a new poll by Zogby Analytics showing him outpolling his nearest rivals for the nomination by about two to one. The poll of 315 likely Republican primary voters was conducted online on August 13-15 and has a margin of sampling error of +/-5.6 percentage points.

Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that his Justice Department is opening a criminal investigation into the brutal execution by Islamic State militants of American journalist James Foley, in the latest move by the administration to use the criminal justice system to pursue terrorists. The announcement comes as the administration steps up its airstrike campaign against the same militant organization -- and mulls additional American boots on the ground in Iraq. Holder, during remarks in Washington, confirmed the "open criminal investigation" into Foley´s beheading, which was recorded and posted online this week.

Global warming has been temporarily ´paused´ according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. Researchers at ETH Zurich have explained the two reasons behind the warming hiatus in their study published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Geoscience. The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it. However, climate fluctuations such as El Niño and its counter-phenomenon La Niña have

WITH EACH day, the barbarism of the Islamist extremists terrorizing Syria and Iraq becomes more evident — as does the need for the United States and its allies to act more vigorously to block their rise. On Tuesday the group that calls itself the Islamic State released a video of the beheading of American journalist James Foley . Mr. Foley, as President Obama said Wednesday, “reported from difficult and dangerous places. .?.?. [He] courageously told the stories of his fellow human beings.” One reason there has been so little outcry as more than 150,000 Syrians have been killed and millions
