Iran Arming Terrorists
in Judea and Samaria

Arutz Sheva [Israel], by Elad Benari

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/29/2014 1:37:08 AM

Iranian military leaders have openly boasted that they have begun to send weapons to Palestinian Arab terrorists in Judea and Samaria and elsewhere in the region, the Washington Free Beacon reported Thursday. The report quoted a top Iranian military commander who confirmed that weapon shipments to Judea and Samaria have already begun and that more will be sent to other “Palestinian resistance groups.” “Arming the West Bank has started and weapons will be supplied to the people of this region,” Brigadier General Mohammad Reza Naqdi, the commander of Iran’s volunteer Basij force, told the state-run Fars news agency on Wednesday.

Comments:
I had to look it up:

Judea and Samaria . . . are the historical biblical names for the territory now generally referred to as the West Bank.[1] Judea and Samaria Area District is also one of Israeli administrative districts, operating in Area C of the West Bank, but excluding East Jerusalem.

Abbas says Hamas accepted same cease-fire
plan it rejected at beginning of war
Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Khaled Abu Toameh, Herb Keinon    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/28/2014 5:32:30 PM     Post Reply
The cease-fire agreement that was signed this week between Hamas and Israel is not different from the original proposal made by Egypt at the beginning of the war, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas said on Thursday. [Snip] "The Palestinian Authority was the one that asked for this Egyptian initiative," he stated. "We said that the priority should be to stop the fighting to be followed by the implementation of the 2012 understandings [between Hamas and Israel]." Abbas added that there was no difference "other than the losses and suffering we went through." The Palestinian leader´s words were seen as being directed against

Britons are to be the first in the world to test a new vaccine against the deadly ebola virus. Altogether 60 healthy volunteers will be given the vaccine next month in a trial led by Oxford University scientists. If the vaccine performs as well in humans as in monkeys, the trial will be extended to 80 people in The Gambia and in Mali. [Snip] Latest figures show that more than 1,550 people have died from the virus, with more than 3,000 confirmed cases--mostly in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. It is the worst epidemic since the disease was first identified 38

UN Personnel on Golan

Syrian rebels have reportedly taken UN personnel prisoner after they took over the area near the Kuneitra border crossing on the Golan Heights. The UN personnel were stationed on the Syrian side of the border. No confirmation of the story has been issued, and the number of those taken prisoner is also unclear, with some reports saying that “dozens” of personnel have been captured. The reports identified the kidnappers as being members of a group close to Al Qaeda that is fighting soldiers of the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Syrian officials said that they had managed to wrest control of the village

How About an Opera ´Why Michael

What do you think? Do you think if I write a thought-provoking, probingly-artistic contemporary opera on the subject of Michael Brown’s untimely shooting, it will be met with critical acclaim? [Snip] You remember Leon Klinghofer, don’t you? He was the 69-year-old Jewish man who, in 1985, was pushed off the cruise ship Achille Lauro to his death by Palestinian terrorists. Pushed into the water in his wheelchair. Because he was Jewish. The opera portrays this murder as justified, not only because of Palestinian grievances against Israel, but also by the alleged evil and exploitative actions of Jews against others around

Conservative MP Stands by Enoch Powell´s
Premonition for a Multicultural Britain

A Conservative MP has said that Enoch Powell was right to warn that "non-Christian" immigration would cause social problems. In a letter to a constituent, Sir Gerald Howarth said that the recent Trojan Horse scandal showed that some of these immigrants have a different "ethos" to Christian schools, and that the government is right to intervene to stop them teaching their ideology to British students. Earlier this year, 21 schools in Birmingham were investigated over an alleged takeover by Islamist extremists. Subsequent reports found that a small group of individuals had tried to impose a strict interpretation of Islam on the

America is poised to ask Britain to support air strikes against jihadi positions in northern Iraq, it was reported last night. The White House believes the UK and Australia would be willing to join in such an air campaign, according to the New York Times. And it claimed officials are on the point of asking the Prime Minister--as well as leaders of a string of other countries including Qatar, Jordan, Turkey and Australia--about it. However, Downing Street sources said yesterday no request from the Obama administration had yet been made, and that UK involvement in air strikes would need ‘a

´Russian troops deployed´

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has cancelled a visit to Turkey, citing "Russian troop deployments" in the east of the country. Mr Poroshenko said his place was in Kiev in view of a sharp deterioration in the situation in Donetsk region. His announcement came as pro-Russian rebels captured the seaside town of Novoazovsk and threatened to take the strategic port city of Mariupol. The rebel successes constitute the opening of a new front in the conflict. Mr Poroshenko said he was calling a meeting of the Ukrainian security council. He added that Ukraine would initiate an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council to discuss

Israeli Negotiator: Gazans Have

Amos Gilad, the former IDF general who was a member of the Israeli negotiating team that worked on the Gaza ceasefire, said Thursday that the indirect negotiation process between Israel and Hamas was one of the most “tiring” experiences he had ever been through. “You sit for hours in a room, waiting for the minor changes made by either Hamas or the Egyptians to the agreement, many of them designed to trick you into making a bad deal,” Gilad said of the process. Negotiations took place in a Gaza hotel, with Israeli and Hamas terror officials sequestered in different rooms. Egyptian

The mysterious Libya air strikes

The mystery over the air strikes in Libya’s capital appears to have been cleared up. US officials say that the military jets which bombed targets in Tripoli last week were from the air forces of Egypt and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). [Snip] There are many important aspects to this affair, not least the sobering fact that air strikes can take place in Libya’s capital without anyone really knowing who was responsible. If that is not compelling evidence of Libya’s descent into a failed state, then I don’t know what is. But there is something else worth noting. Egypt and the

The US is considering making aid drops to Shia Turkmen in northern Iraq who are under siege from Islamic State (IS) militants, US defence sources say. President Obama is also close to expanding US air strikes against IS after seeking support from several EU allies, according to US officials. Last week the UN said urgent action was needed to stop a massacre in Amerli. The Iraqi town is at risk of falling into the hands of IS, who now control large swathes of Iraq and Syria. The majority of Amerli´s residents are Shia Turkmen, who are seen as apostates by

Gaza has had "very negative impact" on US-Israel relations, said Martin Indyk, former US special envoy to the Middle East process, in an interview published this week. [Snip] Speaking extensively on US relations with Israel since the end of the latest round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians last April, and throughout Operation Protective Edge, a candid Indyk said at times US President Barack Obama has become "enraged" at the Israeli government, both for its actions and for its treatment of his chief diplomat, US Secretary of State John Kerry.

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it. And, as usual, it doesn’t look like Washington

Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives. Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group´s smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Politico´s Maggie Haberman reported on Tuesday that Schmidt, the infamous hack from Sen.

The Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed global warming regulations aren’t just about stemming global temperature rises — according to agency’s chief, they are also about “justice” for “communities of color.” “Carbon pollution standards are an issue of justice,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a teleconference call with environmental activists. “If we want to protect communities of color, we need to protect them from climate change.” McCarthy is referring to the EPA’s proposed rule that would limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The agency says the rule will not only help fight global warming, but will also improve public

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. On Friday, Obama will be feted at the home of one of his top bundlers, 32 Advisors’ Robert Wolf, in the aptly-named Purchase, NY, with 250 high-rollers paying up to $32,000 each to bend Obama’s ear.

The Minnesota man who died alongside fellow ISIS fighters in Syria was "not a terrorist," his cousin claims. Douglas McAuthur McCain died over the weekend in radical-on-radical clashes in Syria. He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant. "We would never believe him to be involved in anything like this. He´s just a regular person." Kanyata McCain told NBC News. "My cousin is not a terrorist."

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Turness, who came to the job from Britain’s ITV News one year ago, dropped the tactless clanger in a New York Times interview on Sunday, saying, “NBC News hadn’t kept up with the times in all sorts of ways, for maybe 15 years .?.?.

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities. Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in
