In our peculiar post-9/11 world, it is apparently less controversial to kill a suspect in cold blood than to hold him in preventive detention. The Post reported on February 14 that the Obama administration has killed many more suspected terrorists than it has captured. According to National Journal, Obama ordered more drone attacks in his first year than President Bush did in two full presidential terms. The Post article suggested that the two developments may not be unrelated. A dead suspect, a...

Somalilandpress.com are still optimistic about rumours that Israel wants to recognise Somaliland's independence. I understand their optimism and I totally support official recognition, but I am ultimately less optimistic. I have checked every hint they had, Hebrew-language articles in Israeli newspapers, quotes from officials, word on the street; but I never could find the source of the rumours. I do know that the Israeli public are likely to support Somaliland. Anyway, Somalilandpress....

There will be some celebrations on the streets among "peace activists" when this happens: Israelis may show a lot less restraint if skyscrapers in Tel Aviv are exploding. Iran might even fire off some of its own if the leadership thinks Israel lacks the resources or strength to fight on too many fronts. The United States could be drawn in kicking and screaming, but resistance-bloc leaders have every reason to believe it won’t happen, that the U.S. is more likely to zip flex cuffs on Jer...

Meet the new mascot of my blog, Mr Shmulik Karhon. Mr Karhon (aka Mr Samuel Iceberg) is a desert penguin.He is Jewish, obviously. I imagine his family is from northern Iraq. He is a traditionalist but not really religious. He is a conservative, like most penguins, yet fairly progressive, like most Jews.And he is not afraid of being thrown into the sea.

Israel National News: According to recent media reports, Israeli military and intelligence agents are currently operating in Iraqi Kurdistan. Their primary role, according to reports, is to train elite Kurdish commandos in guerrilla warfare and anti-terror tactics. The Kurds - whose country is currently occupied by Iraq, Turkey, Iran and Syria - are reportedly again, after many years, accepting Israeli assistance in their struggle for independence. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/Ne...

Turns outStormfront.org found out who is responsible, either for Global Warming or the "lie" about it: When the staff at Hatewatch wants to know about the weird weather out there, we know just where to turn: Stormfront.org. That’s right, the leading white supremacist Web forum in the world. Only there can you find a truly unique revelation about the causes of global warming, and it has nothing to do with carbon emissions. It’s the Jews. That the nefarious Jews are behind &ld...

This article is in itself interesting. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/middle_east/8585775.stm But I thought it would be fun to add a few bits of information I have learned from other news about Gaza.    By Jon Donnison and relevant well-known facts added by Leauki BBC News, Gaza In a busy internet cafe in the centre of  the Gaza concentration camp, lots of people, mostly young, are typing and clicking away in a territory that is so poor that it deserves everyone's comp...

Care to see a prime example of lefty minds exploding from confusion? I like this comment most: I dunno what this Administration is thinking about the Middle East. Clinton seems to be running around, making no new friends, and building no personal gravitas in the region. Wherever she goes, a few days later, Mike Mullen or some other high ranking U.S. military leader is sucked in, to confirm that she's been there, and that she wasn't just an errant American tourist. But as an American Sec...

Apparently the Zionists are planning to unleash another racist catastrophe. This time they discriminate against cancer cells: An Israeli research scientist has accidentally discovered a chemical compound that eradicates cancer cells without harming normal cells in the process. The substance may prove to be the long sought-after "holy grail" in the wider field of cancer treatment. For now, it shows promise as a specific weapon against breast cancer. http://israel21c.org/health/closing-in...

The Obama administration has encouraged "resistance" by Palestinians to protest Israel's presence in eastern Jerusalem, a senior Palestinian Authority official claimed to WND. The senior PA official, speaking from Ramallah on condition of anonymity, said that in recent meetings with U.S. envoys to the region, the American diplomats supported and encouraged the concept of Palestinian protests to pressure Israel into evacuating eastern sections of Jerusalem. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa...

By out "peace partners" who are not anti-Semites, want peace, and only see Israeli "settlements" as a reason for war: Palestinian journalists who last week met with their Israeli colleagues and an IDF spokesman in Tel Aviv have come under fire from both Hamas and Fatah. The trip was arranged by the non-profit Israel advocacy group The Israel Project, whose Web site described the group as “an international non-profit organization devoted to educating the press and the public about Isr...

The Quranic argument for Jewish sovereignty in the land of Israel By Sheikh Abdul Hadi Palazzi Over the past 15 years, the political conflict between Israeli Jews and Palestinian Arabs has been reframed as a religious war in which leaders from Yasser Arafat to Hassan Nasrallah to Osama bin Laden have appealed to the authority of the Quran to support their goal of eliminating the State of Israel. The authority of the Quran has also been cited in support of a revisionist history that seeks t...

Is this a notable difference? http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/washington/2010/03/barack-obama-george-w-bush-us-troops.html Maybe it's just me but it looks to me as if the soldiers _loved_ George W. Bush but merely respect Barack Obama. Soldiers appear to want to get closer to Bush but seem bored in Obama's presence, just standing where there were supposed to stand. Also Bush stands in their middle while Obama is on the other side of a fence (but this might have to do with how the visit ...
