It will be a long, hot summer for New Yorkers as Canada plans on pulling the plug on their only source of electricity. Ontario’s environment minister says Canada should consider cutting its power supply to New York State this summer if it finds itself experiencing power shortages.
Makes sense, no? Why should Canadians suffer whilst Americans sit in comfort ….
Of course the above doesn’t make any sense because it’s not true….
BUT …. the following is;

Erdan: Cut Gaza power supply to avoid shortages in Israel  

Israel’s environment minister says Israel should consider cutting its power supply to Gaza this summer if it finds itself experiencing power shortages.

JERUSALEM – Israel should consider cutting its supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip this summer if it finds itself experiencing power shortages, Israel’s environment minister Gilad Erdan said on Sunday.

Erdan, a member of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party, outlined the proposal in a letter to ministers, who were scheduled to discuss the issue during their Sunday cabinet meeting.

“If there are power shortages in Israel this summer, the supply of electricity to the Gaza Strip should be halted… It represents 4.5 percent of Israeli production,” the letter said.

“Electricity production will be less than demand this summer,” Erdan added, in an interview with Israeli military radio on Sunday.

“We are looking at using production methods that are more polluting and alternative energy sources like solar but we may still have to have electricity outages.”

“If we are in that situation it would be absurd for Israelis to be the first ones affected while at the same time we continue to provide electricity to Gaza, while they are not paying,” he said.

In a statement, Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhum said Erdan’s “threats… exposed the true face of the occupation.”

“What is required from the Arab countries, and Egypt in particular, is the creation of an Arab, Egyptian safety net for the residents of Gaza in light of the Zionist blackmail,” he added.

Israel’s energy generation is heavily dependent on natural gas supplies from Egypt, which have been interrupted multiple times since the Egyptian revolution.

Attackers have frequently blown up the pipeline that supplies Israel with Egyptian gas, and Egypt in April annulled the bilateral contract governing the supply, saying Israel had failed to meet its conditions.

The Gaza Strip experienced its worst electricity crisis in memory this year, as the supply of fuel smuggled from Egypt dwindled, forcing the closure of the coastal territory’s sole power plant.

The crisis led to power cuts of up to 18 hours a day, but has eased somewhat after a deal between Gaza’s Hamas government and the Palestinian Authority government in the West Bank, which agreed to supply Gaza with fuel purchased from Israel.




Israel’s Right which is usually wrong does not see the above as racist…




Cut off Gaza’s power

Op-ed: Minister Gilad Erdan’s proposal to cut off Strip’s electricity supply is logical, not racist

Jerusalem: Ads warn parents – keep daughters away from Arabs

Ad made to look like imaginary wedding invitation distributed throughout Jerusalem’s streets in bid to demonstrate what would happen if parents fail to keep watch over their daughters

Lehava, the extremist Jewish organization for the prevention of assimilation in the Holy Land, has come up with a new gimmick that is creating a stormy debate on the issue of mixed marriages between Jews and Arabs.

In an ad made to look like an imaginary wedding invitation between Michal and her chosen groom Mohammad, distributed throughout Jerusalem’s streets, the organization is seeking to demonstrate what would happen if parents fail to keep watch over their daughters.

Secular people who passed by the “invitations” expressed their anger over what they say is the racist wording of the ad: “They are staining an entire nation and turning us into racists against our will. We are not all primitives as might be understood from the ad,” said one Jerusalemite after reading the ad.

המודעה שעוררה את הסערה

The controversial ad

The “invitation” asks you to join Michal and Mohammad as they celebrate their marriage on a Friday night at the Shahid (martyr) events hall in Ramallah. Next to the invitation the ad reads: “If you don’t want your daughter’s wedding invitation to look like this then…Don’t let her work with Arabs or do national service with non-Jews, don’t let her work in place that employs enemies and don’t bring home migrant workers…”

The Lehava organization’s goal is to “save the daughters of Israel who have been tempted into a romantic relationship with a non-Jew.”

‘Harvard promoting anti-Semitic event’

Ivy League school to host pro-Palestinian ‘One State Conference’ next week amid growing protest by pro-Israel students, alumni who claim event promotes racism, negates Israel’s right to exist

*Read about the Panic in the Ivory Tower HERE


*What the ‘critics’ had to say ….
From our very own ‘Psycho Gal’….
Now, writes Glick, ”anti-Zionism” has replaced anti-Semitism among the fashionable, and the “embrace of the cause of Israel’s destruction by so many celebrity professors today is part and parcel of the destruction of the U.S. higher education system.” But Glick gives the most compelling rationale for the existence of Israel when she tells how she read about the one-state conference “as I was feeding my newborn son. I looked out the window at Jerusalem and all I could feel was thankful to be living in the independent, free Jewish state of Israel. I am thankful that these pseudo intellectuals no longer can determine the future of my people, as they could in the 1930s.”
From the desk of Abe Foxman….

“This conference goes beyond academic discourse about the conflict by promoting the elimination of the Jewish state,” Foxman said in his letter to Faust. “Although the conference organizers state that one of their goals for the conference is to ‘help to expand the range of academic debate on this issue,’ there can never be any legitimate discussion of a concept which, by its very nature, will result in the end of the Jewish character of Israel.”

ADL said in a news release issued Feb. 24 that Faust and Dean David Ellwood of the Kennedy School of Government in a phone call with Foxman acknowledged ADL’s concerns and said Harvard did not accept any policy that would lead to the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel. Following the telephone call, Ellwood issued a statement regarding the conference which said, in part, “We would never take a position on specific policy solutions to achieving peace in this region, and certainly would not endorse any policy that some argue could lead to the elimination of the Jewish State of Israel.”

Foxman said that “Ellwood’s statement reflects Harvard University’s effort to protect the cherished right of academic freedom and act responsibly by publicly rejecting odious ideas.”*

And of course, no condemnation would be complete without Dershowitz’s two cents…

Alan Dershowitz also targets the conference, with another bogus analogy, suggesting that anyone who calls for one state is denying Jewish peoplehood. There’s not really a connection:

What would Harvard do if a group of right wing students and faculty decided to convene a conference on the topic, “Are the Palestinians Really a People?” and invited as speakers only hard right academics who answered that question in the negative?…

They will claim that the “one-state solution” is a serious academic subject, whereas the question “are the Palestinians really a people?” is not. This is a pure rationalization. The question regarding the Palestinians was raised by a candidate for President of the United States and has been the subject of debate and controversy in the media and in academic writings. Both subjects are essentially political in nature and both have similarly phony academic veneers.

The use of incandescent light bulbs is now illegal in Israel.

How many politicians does it take to change a lightbulb?

Say goodbye to incandescent bulbs – from this week, shops in Israel can sell only energy-efficient lights*

The incandescent lightbulb we’re familiar with today is essentially the same as Thomas Edison patented some 130 years ago. It uses electricity to heat a metallic coil which radiates light, but little of the power is actually converted to light.

CFL bulbs are more efficient in transforming electricity into light, usually providing four to five times more light than incandescent bulbs for the same amount of power, and last up to eight times longer. They cost, however, NIS 20 to NIS 40 each compared to a mere few shekels for an incandescent bulb.

To promote the switch the Energy and Water Resources Ministry issued a tender for the subsidized sale of CFL bulbs for a limited period of time at a total cost of NIS 4.25 million.

Nisko Electricity and Electronics won the tender and, beginning next month, will be selling through retail chains 500,000 packages of three light bulbs at NIS 20 a package, with the government subsidizing each bulb by about NIS 8. The company will provide a two-year warranty and a guarantee for 10,000 hours of usage – as opposed to the normal 800 to 900 hours useful life of incandescent bulbs.

Now really ….. how can I be critical of such an important decision, truly making Israel a light upon all nations.



Palestinian grape farmers attempting to sell their produce abroad….
Palestinian tomato growers having the chutzpah to water their crops with water belonging to THEM….
BUT ….. in all seriousness, the biggest crime of them all is the fact that the West is aware of Israel’s crimes and yet it continues to allow them to continue… their watchful eye sees all.
The following video is a must watch, hopefully what will become a wakeup call to end the occupation once and for all.
Ali’s tale is that of a life-long struggle with the Israeli occupation: Arrests, violence, road-blocks, water restriction and economical hardship, a struggle to maintain the life of a Palestinian grape farmer.


 It’s almost two months since the spectacular release of Hamas’ ‘prisoner’ Gilad Shalit. Kept out of the limelight and protected from the local paparazzi, the time has finally come for news about him …. this time from Israeli Army Radio sources …. can’t be more reliable than that, eh?
Here goes ….
But first, it should be noted that thousands of Palestinians languishing in Israeli prisons go on hunger strikes every year to bring attention to their plight … incidents that go on without any publicity in the Israeli press or by Army Radio…

Report: Gilad Shalit went on hunger strike while in Hamas captivity

Abducted IDF soldier Shalit, who was was eventually freed in a prisoner swap deal in October, forced Hamas to take efforts toward his release out of fear for his life, according to Army Radio.

Gilad Shalit went on hunger strike while in Hamas captivity, to pressure Hamas into negotiating his release, Army Radio reported on Sunday, citing “Yediot Aharonot.”

The abducted Israel Defense Forces soldier refused to eat, and consequently forced Hamas to take steps towards his release, out of fear for his life, the report said.

According to the report, Iran and Hamas also gave Israel false information as to Shalit’s whereabouts, in an attempt to lure an IDF extraction team into a booby trapped building.

Shalit was kept underground for the entire duration of his captivity and his guards did not change at any point during that time, the report said.

Shalit was released on October 18 after five years in Hamas captivity in a prisoner exchange deal which saw the release of over 1,000 Palestinian prisoners.

For 64 years Israel has maintained an occupation of all Palestinian owned lands and homes. The term ‘occupied’ belongs to them…. Copyright is a legal concept, enacted by most governments, giving the creator of an original work exclusive rights to it, usually for a limited time. Generally, it is “the right to copy”, but also gives the copyright holder the right to be credited for the work, to determine who may adapt the work to other forms, who may perform the work, who may financially benefit from it, and other, related rights. It is an intellectual property form (like the patent, the trademark, and the trade secret) applicable to any expressible form of an idea or information that is substantive and discrete. Taken FROM
The State of Israel in no way wants any association whatsoever with the 99%. They are a proud member of the 1%. After consultation with their lawyer, Alan Dershowitz, they were advised to sue the OWS for usurping ‘their’ word without prior permission. Dershowitz was quoted as saying,”Occupation, Apartheid and Genocide are all an integral part of zionism, therefore they are the property of the State of Israel”. Efforts are under way to allow Judge Richard Goldstone to preside over the upcoming hearing. Goldstone himself has issued sworn testimonies in recent months supporting Israel’s ‘right to be evil’.
The Occupied Wall Street Movement has not yet responded to these ‘charges’. It is expected that they will continue using the word despite ongoing pressure from the ADL, insisting that they are an anti-Semitic Movement. Glenn Beck has echoed Foxman’s words leaving no doubt as to their validity. Despite that, it is expected that O W S  will continue using the disputed word in the hope that Israel’s occupation will end shortly therefore rendering the word ‘public domain’
Except for the very last sentence, the above is strictly satire in a most sarcastic way.
Our Associate, Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh just penned the following poem, it is very fitting for this post;

Is hypocrisy sanctified?

Is hypocrisy ignored?
As children of lesser gods cleansed!
While colonial settlers from Europe enriched
and 7 million Palestinian refugees created
dozens of massacres committed
And 540 villages and towns depopulated
putting us here them there as planned!
While speaking of security not for the colonized
And Safety not for the occupied

Is hypocrisy sanctified?
When big brown eyes teared
As Mother was gunned
And Americans mourned
for Rachel bulldozed
While soldiers celebrated
a mission accomplished
and we, who were not chosen or selected
our dead we buried
our wound we licked
or in our drinks we drowned
even shopped while silenced
or behind closed doors muttered
or news on TV cursed
to the world as it is adapted

Is hypocrisy unquestioned?
When rich Abe Foxman “feels” discriminated
and the new Goebles called Regev worried
and Friedman in his column squeaked
Netanyahu hugging racists demanded
and a bar bouncer minister bellowed
and they all told us to be silenced
for only Jewish suffering was allowed
and apathy on today’s atrocities encouraged
as the altered school curricula deemed
a whole history manufactured
bible myths promoted
while archeology ignored
and conflicts promoted
to fulfill prophecies
Hope diminished
Love massacred

Is hypocrisy worshipped?
When some Palestinian politicians adapted?
Their revolutionary spirit long quenched
And with VIP cards in 5 star hotels dined?
And their European-funded studies accumulated
While even prayers in churches and mosques were stopped
and a thousand year old tree was uprooted
And an old man became partially blind
for his olives behind the fence withered
and after a second stroke he was buried
But not in his land….
his neighbor said “with no choice I worked”
So that “with shekels from occupiers I was paid”
But others in suits in front of cameras their mouth opened
And to the dry hot dusty air contributed!

Is hypocrisy normalized?
When, not Bahrain but Syria sanctioned!
And not Yemen, but Libya attacked!
Belligerent Israel with its nukes supported
While Iran, attacking no one, is bullied
And so what if western politicians lied?
After they took the paid junkets and were bribed?
Isn’t it normal for prostitutes to be sold?
And keep millions in apartheid?
While to millions the truth denied?
And poor Americans lose their homes?
While billionaires get more enriched?

Is hypocrisy easily digested?
When 20 racist laws are codified
In an apartheid country supposedly democratized
Or when an Israeli soldier’s life is venerated?
While Thousands of Palestinian chained…
A hundred thousand Injured…
With high walls Surrounded….
In Bantustans warehoused….
Millions ghettoized…
And graves of hundreds of children overflowed…
And as collateral damage justified
an army with a state is called moralized!

Is hypocrisy elevated?
When on Yom Kippur they pledged
Sins and lies to be purified
And their US made F-16s bombed
refugee camps with explosives obliterated
While an old woman in Silwan evicted
And humanitarian ships pirated
Peace Activists on the deck executed
As the dreaded word “bitachon” regurgitated
And again and again Al-Araqib demolished

Is hypocrisy deified?
When monotheistic religions distorted:
Jacob with Elohim/El-lah struggled
And in triumph Isra-El renamed!
When idols like Zionism worshiped
and can’t be challenged
by inferior gentiles who can’t understand
and by us the native “roaches drugged”
Yahweh gave the deed to the land
to those who can create gods from Gold
and gold from hasbara as they lobbied
for yet another war and got readied

Is hypocrisy venerated?
when myths are believed
Jewishness and Zionism worshipped
And ashes of murdered Jews used
Even as living survivors screamed:
not in our name can history be politicized
and “never again” must not be Judaicized

Is hypocrisy exalted?
Or a global intifada launched
London to San Francisco echoed
Wall Street to Sidney “occupied”
our unity in humanity finally emerged
hypocrisy exposed!
Humanity reclaimed!
Love ascertained!


I don’t know why companies continue to spend millions of dollars on advertising campaigns when just a few choice words will get the ADL to advertise the product for free.
I never even heard of the product involved, but thanks to the ADL it is now a household word in New York, once again proving that you don’t have to be an anti-Semite to be attacked.
‘All I want for Xmas is for the ADL to leave me alone 😉 ‘
“In a crude and offensive way of trying to make a point that their vodka is high quality and inexpensive, the billboards evoke a Jewish holiday to imply something that is cheap and of lesser value when compared to the higher value of a Christian holiday,” Meier said.

‘Hanukkah pricing’ Wodka vodka billboards are anti-Semitic,  ADL charges 

Company bombarded with complaints


ABC News A Wodka vodka ad on the West Side Highway.

Billboards pitching a cheap vodka to New Yorkers were attacked Tuesday by the Anti-Defamation League as anti-Semitic.

The Wódka vodka promotion features two dogs, one in a Santa hat and the other in a yarmulke, and include the message, “Christmas Quality, Hanukkah Pricing.”

ADL regional director Ron Meier said the ad “reinforces anti-Semitic stereotypes.”

“In a crude and offensive way of trying to make a point that their vodka is high quality and inexpensive, the billboards evoke a Jewish holiday to imply something that is cheap and of lesser value when compared to the higher value of a Christian holiday,” Meier said.

One of the billboards along the West Side Highway was taken down Tuesday, after the vodka company Panache Beverages in the Flatiron District was bombarded with complaints.

The company vowed to pull all the ads immediately.

“Particularly with the long history of anti-Semitic stereotypes about Jews and money, with the age-old notion that Jews are cheap, to use the Jewish holiday in dealing with issues of money is clearly insensitive and inappropriate,” Meier said.

Wódka vodka — which sells for $9 for a 750 milliliter bottle — has a reputation for irreverent ads, including ones reading “Escort Quality, Hooker Pricing” and “Hamptons Quality, Newark Pricing.”

“We’re surprised. We’re surprised people are vitriolically offended by what we’ve done,” said Dale James, co-owner of the vodka company, adding the ads were not intended to be offensive.

“This is a premium vodka, at a value price. That’s all we’re saying,” Dale told CBS Channel 2 news. “It’s all about value and quality.”

He said he’s even gotten death threats over the ads and has been compared to a Nazi.



A 12-member Palestinian family has been ordered to vacate its house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan within two weeks.
They used to come in the middle of the night to illegally evict Palestinian families from THEIR homes, now they give two weeks notice…
How humanitarian is that?? (sic)

Palestinian family given two weeks to vacate East Jerusalem home

Himnuta, subsidiary of Jewish National Fund, set to evict the Sumarin family, transfer house to settlers; Himnuta trying to evict family since 1991, says it owns the house they are living in. 

A 12-member Palestinian family has been ordered to vacate its house in the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan within two weeks.

The party behind the eviction is Himnuta, a subsidiary of the Jewish National Fund, which has been trying to get the Sumarin family to leave since 1991. Himnuta claims the house where the Sumarins are living actually belongs to it.

The custodian general confiscated the house from its original owner under the Abandoned Property Law about two decades ago and transferred it to the Development Authority, a state agency. Not long afterward, in the early 1990s, the Development Authority made a deal with Himnuta under which Himnuta received Palestinian land and houses in Silwan in exchange for land near Wadi Ara that the JNF transferred to the state.

Shortly after obtaining these houses, Himnuta leased most of them to Elad, a group engaged in settling Jews in East Jerusalem that also runs the nearby City of David national park. Left-wing activists and Palestinian residents of the neighborhood believe the Sumarin house will also eventually be transferred to Elad, since it is located right at the entrance to the City of David.

Several of the surrounding houses are owned by Elad and have been populated with Jews, and the lawyers who represented Himnuta in the Sumarin case have also represented Elad in many similar cases.

There have been various legal proceedings over the Sumarin house, which produced verdicts both for and against the family. Finally, in 2005, Himnuta filed suit to evict the Sumarins.

The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court accepted the suit in January 2006, apparently due mainly to negligence by the family’s attorney, which never filed a defense brief. The court ordered the Sumarins to vacate the house and pay Himnuta NIS 1 million in compensation.

For several years thereafter, Himnuta took no further action. But about two months ago, it applied to the Bailiff’s Office and obtained an eviction order from this agency. The order requires the Sumarins to leave by November 28 or face forcible eviction. Meanwhile, the amount of compensation they owe Himnuta has grown to NIS 2 million.

On Sunday, agents from the Bailiff’s Office came to the house with a police escort to seek information from the family. “They asked how many rooms there are, where the back door is and who lives in the house,” said Ahmed Sumarin, 28.

Another family member said that one of visitors added, “In another two weeks, there will be a mezuzah here.”

“I don’t know what to do if they come with force,” said Ahmed Sumarin. “This is our home. My grandfather still lives here. Where will we go? If they take your home away, you can only go onto the street.”

On Tuesday, the family’s new attorney, Muhammad Dahleh, plans to file a request to annul the verdict. “This whole proceeding was mistaken,” he said. “Had a defense brief been filed, it would have been possible to do a lot.”

The Sheikh Jarrah Solidarity movement, which has been helping the family, said that Himnuta’s “eagerness to throw people out of their home in the service of the settlers is another expression of the current government’s thuggish rule. We’ll continue to suffer from the destructiveness of this racist policy until the public rises up against a government that sabotages our future.”




Killing Me Softly …..



Or so it seems…. as New York’s finest shut down the Wall Street Encampment.
Democracy for the bankers ….. not for the people.
Isn’t that what was meant in The Bill of Rights?

The NYPD didn’t shut it down!  It is still there!   Lots of people are joining the occupiers today. THERE IS STILL HOPE!

This report deals with the situation



Abe Foxman was rudely awakened this morning with the distressing news that one of the largest Jewish houses of worshp in New York was desecrated by extremist elements.
The ADL was quick to condemn the attack and all local newspapers carried reports of the incident. The White House was very quick to respond as well claiming that it is “unforgivable to desecrate a synagogue”. The statement continued, “it is one thing to oppose the building of a mosque, but a completely different scenario when Jews are targeted”.
The incident took place on the eve of the Jewish Festival of Shavuot, one of the holiest days on the Hebrew calendar.
The above DID NOT HAPPEN, it is a fabrication …. BUT the following DID happen, and there was no Foxman or ADL there to condemn the incident. Neither were there reports in the press…. BUT, you can read about it here;

Wine Bottles Smashed In Al-Aqsa Compound

  by David Steele

Local sources report that a number of Jewish settlers broke into the al-Aqsa compound and began drinking wine and smashing bottles on the floor.

Consumption of alcohol is forbidden in Islam and such acts are considered desecration. The group allegedly broke through a gate near the Western Wall and were protected by Israeli police. Police only intervened to ensure that angry worshippers from the mosque were kept separate from the settlers.

The al-Aqsa mosque and Dome of the Rock are considered the third holiest site in Islam. The act of desecration was allegedly a result of calls to celebrate the Shavuot holiday at the site. Tensions have been particularly high in East Jerusalem recently as a result of inflammatory marches on ‘Jerusalem day’ last week and Israeli MK Michael Ben-Ari’s tour of the mosque with a group of settlers on Tuesday.

Haredi paper removes Clinton from photo
Der Tzitung deletes US secretary of state from Situation Room picture showing President Obama and staff watching bin Laden raid

Ultra-Orthodox Hasidic newspaper Der Tzitung is trying to change history by removing US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from the recent Situation Room photo showing Clinton alongside Obama and the rest of his staff watching the Osama bin Laden raid.

Apparently the paper doesn’t allow publishing of women in any of the pictures as they could be considered “sexually suggestive.” Der Tzitung also removed Director of Counterterrorism Audry Thomason from the now-iconic photo.

History, it seems, is not devoid of women, not matter how good our photoshopping skills are. To try and pretend that women aren’t part of today’s most important historical moments is ridiculous.

These are not the days of Kennedy where there were no women to be found in any strategic White House photos. Society has progressed and women now hold major positions the world over, whether some publications like it or not.

In the past the White House has banned news organizations who have “manipulated” photos.

See…. I told you I was dead!

The non-existent group, and its supporters, Al Qaeda has finally come up with the ‘proof’ we have been waiting for regarding the latest death of their leader Osama Bin Laden, and their plans for the future.
The ‘proof’ is reported in one of Britain’s most reliable Internet Tabloid Sites known as NEWSTABULOUS. The Net has made life so easy for us, we no longer have to go to the Supermarket and stand in ques to get hold of such reading material.
To see more of their authentic ‘reporting’ click HERE ….. National Enquirer….. BEWARE! You finally have REAL competition! ‘ENQURING MINDS FINALLY KNOW!

Here is the report on Bin Laden…. followed by still another….
 Al Qaeda supporters and supporters of bin Laden, represented by members of the English right-wing English Defense League, marched to and in front of the London US Embassy, in protest of the killing of the leader of the al Qeada radical jihadist group.

Al Qaeda promised to avenge Osama bin Laden’s death and is determined to keep battling the United States.  Al Qaeda has finally acknowledged bin Laden’s death, in a statement made on the internet, intended to convince its ‘supporters that they will stay united, energetic and effective even though their founder has been killed.

The plots attributable to al Qaeda in the past have been costly and vastly detailed, made over an extensive period of time.  However, US intelligence noted more chatter regarding inexpensive, unimpressive attacks, possibly to be undertaken by small radical groups or single individuals, to avenge bin Laden’s death.

Over 100 protesters in a pro-bin Laden rally, in front of the London US Embassy shouted:

“USA, you will pay!”

To date, no solid, believable threat has been discovered.  Random violence, shootings and bombings, which are to be expected, were mentioned. Threat levels have not been elevated, by choice of US and European authorities.

Security forces and law enforcement in 188 countries have been warned by Interpol to be on alert for pay-back attacks.

Regardless of the chatter on the internet, the reaction of the Islamic world in response to the death of bin Laden has been quite low key, as opposed to the fury bin Laden inspired, which makes one wonder about his influence in the Mid East, an area that has been altered by the numerous pro democracy conflicts.

According to The CS Moniter, the words in the statement read:

“You lived as a good man, you died as a martyr”

However, the statement didn’t designate the next in line to be bin Laden’s successor.

Also in the statement, it said:

“The blood of the holy warrior sheik, Osama bin Laden, God bless him, is too precious to us and to all Muslims to go in vain.  We will remain, God willing, a curse chasing the Americans and their agents, following them outside and inside their countries.”

The authenticity of the statements couldn’t be verified although they are considered authentic.  Al Qaeda’s online media distribution network, the all-Fajir Center, posted information on militant websites, which was written in the style typical of al Qaeda.  A day after the death of bin Laden, the statement was made, supposedly, by the General Command of the organization or in his name.

According to Jay Carney, White House press secretary, US officials knew about the threat and statement.  He further stated:

“What it does obviously is acknowledge the obvious, which is that Osama bin Laden was killed.  We are quite aware of the potential for (terrorist) activity and are highly vigilant on that matter for that reason.”

The statement further read:

“Sheik Osama didn’t build an organization to die when he dies.  The university of faith, Quran and jihad from which bin Laden graduated will not close its doors.  The soldiers of Islam will continue in groups and united, plotting and planning without getting bored, with determination, without giving up until striking a blow.” 

It also said, of the action of the killing of bin Laden, it was done:

“along an established path followed by the best of those who came before him and those who will come after him.”

This acknowledgment made by al Qaeda ought take away the doubt from all, but the most determined “conspiracy theorists” the fact that bin Laden was truly killed and really is dead.

As President Obama said:

“Justice has been done!”




Following is the rest of the ‘proof’ I promised…. If these two reports fail to convince you that’s it’s all ‘true’ …. I’m at a loss. I have done my best to bring you the ‘facts’……


British zionism’s ‘resident Muslim’,  Shiraz Maher, contributed the following ‘pertinent’ information to anyone that still might have doubts…


Jihadis React to Bin Laden’s Death

Islamist Web Sites and The Future of Al Qaeda
Shiraz Maher
The view from jihadi Internet forums is fascinating these days as al Qaeda members and supporters react to the loss of their leader. Until al Qaeda officially confirmed Osama bin Laden’s death on Friday, confusion dominated the forums, with participants sharply divided between those who embraced the news and those who denied it.

The more stoic members were keen to ensure that their supporters did not lose heart. “We were not fighting for Osama,” Salmakh84 wrote on the Ansar forum. “We were fighting for Allah. The Jihad will continue even if the Amir [leader] is Shaheed [martyred]!!” Another user added: “Those who fought for shaykh usaamah know that shaykh usaamah has passed away, but those who fought for Allaah know that Allaah is alive and will never die.”

As forum members waited for al Qaeda to make a statement, one user pleaded, “Please be patient and put aside all speculations until we receive an official confirmation report from our brothers in the ranks.” Until yesterday, the only confirmation of bin Laden’s death had come from Western media –- an unacceptable source for jihadis. Links to mainstream news stories were flagged as coming from an “unconfirmed kafir [unbeliever] source,” and a user called Ansariyya wrote that he would never “believe a word that comes out of their lying deceitful mouths.” Another added, “Who cares what the kuffaruun [unbeliever] dogs are stating?”

Indeed, some jihadi forums even continued to insist that bin Laden was alive. As late as Thursday, the al Qimmah forum (which is linked to the al Shabaab movement in Somalia) and several others carried a video statement from a man calling himself Commander Waliu al Rahman, which claimed that bin Laden was alive.

Bin Laden’s followers have been quick promise new attacks. One warned that “a million new bin Ladens will be born! And the flag of jihad will be raised! Inshallah.”

Conflicting statements from senior U.S. officials regarding bin Laden’s last minutes only heightened distrust among forum users. According to U.S. President Barack Obama’s initial statement, there was a firefight at the compound, suggesting that bin Laden was armed. According to White House spokesman Jay Carney’s later statements, he was not. The administration also dismissed earlier suggestions that bin Laden had hidden behind his wife. The commenter Ummu Amarah, writing on the popular Ansar forum, summed up users’ frustration: “This is so crazy and confusing … maybe we should stop writing and talking about this news until our brothers have confirmed if the news is true or not.”

As forum members continued to speculate, a user calling himself Mujahid expressed his frustration at the lack of information: “Is there really still no official word out? It’s weird on both ends, the story the americans are saying doesn’t make sense and no official word has been put out yet by AQ pretty unusual.” Administrators from Ansar echoed those sentiments, pointing out that “More than 48 hours have passed and still there is no official statement from Al-Fajr media [al Qaeda’s official online news outlet] regarding the Martyrdom of Sheikh Osama bin laden. The supporters of the Mujahideen are waiting for the official statement with their hands on their hearts.”

Al Qaeda finally confirmed bin Laden’s death on Friday, May 6, on the Ansar and Shumukh forums. The fact “that the Americans have killed Osama is neither shameful nor disgraceful,” the announcement said, since ”men and heroes are only killed on the battlefield, and every soul has an appointed time.” It went on to warn that “Sheikh Osama did not build an organization that would die with him, nor would end with him.”

The delay between his death and the announcement was unusual. Typically, al Qaeda is quick to publicize the death of a leader and hail him as a martyr. In 2006, Ayman al-Zawahiri, then al Qaeda’s second in command, practically canonized Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, on the al Hesbah and Ikhlaas forums after he was killed by a U.S. air strike in Iraq. Similarly, when Mustafa Abu al-Yazid, al Qaeda’s alleged financial chief, was killed by a drone strike in Pakistan last year, al Qaeda wasted little time in eulogizing him. Bin Laden and Zawahiri both released official statements of mourning.

Al Qaeda uses such announcements to inspire a wide audience of members –- and potential recruits –- with tales of heroism and the promise of paradise if they participate in jihad. But just how much does the chatter on these forums actually matter? Although jihadi forum members were once considered benign, evidence in recent years suggests that some are anything but armchair jihadis. Take the example of Humam Khalil al-Balawi, who claimed the lives of seven CIA personnel working at Camp Chapman in Afghanistan in December 2009. It was the deadliest attack against American intelligence officers since the 1983 bombing of the American embassy in Beirut, and Balawi became a forum users’ hero because he was one of their own.

Although Balawi had long been associated with extremism, he was also an enthusiastic participant on al Qaeda—linked forums. Over many years, he had risen from contributor to administrator and then to suicide bomber. His case is not exceptional. Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has also used jihadi Web forums to communicate directly with Muslims in the West, using encrypted messages to offer detailed instructions on how to conduct jihad. One al Qaeda member, Anwar al-Awlaki, directed Major Nidal Hasan to carry out a terrorist attack at Fort Hood in 2009.

Of course, forum participants do not always become killers in order to serve the jihadi cause. From 2003 to 2005, a young Moroccan in London, Younis Tsouli, ran sophisticated Web sites for the Iraqi insurgency under the pseudonym Irhabi 007 (Terrorist 007). Shortly before British police arrested him, in October 2005, he published a twenty-page document explaining how to hack Web sites. When the controversy surrounding Jyllands-Posten’s publication of cartoons satirizing the Prophet Mohammed flared up the following year, jihadi hackers systematically bombarded the newspaper’s servers, causing them to overload and crash. On an al Qaeda forum, one member acknowledged, “I am certain that I see his [Younis Tsouli’s] fingerprints on numerous projects.”

Al Qaeda’s increasing reliance on Web forums is telling. Denied safe havens and the ability to educate sympathizers in training camps, the group has prioritized online outreach to radicalize and inspire lone wolves. Almost impossible to detect and requiring practically no preparation, their attacks are primitive but effective, as the case of Hasan demonstrated. And within hours of bin Laden’s death, material aimed at inspiring that kind of attack was reissued on key forums, including one video called “And Incite the Believers” and another celebrating the “blessed Manhattan raid,” a reference to 9/11.

A well regarded and prolific member of the online jihadi community, Assad al-Jihad 2 (Lion of Jihad 2), frequently posts articles on the Ansar and Shumukh forums written on behalf of al Qaeda, and is thought to be a senior member of the group. After news of bin Laden’s death first emerged, he polled forum users to assess their reactions. The overwhelming majority, more than ninety percent, believed that attacks against the United States would increase, and that bin Laden’s death would embolden the movement.

Bin Laden’s influence will linger online for years to come. His followers have been quick to renew their pledge to the jihadi cause and are promising new attacks. One contributor warned on the Ansar forum that “a million new bin Ladens will be born! And the flag of jihad will be raised! Inshallah.” Another, Husain Mahmoud, wrote, “We are a nation who build a lofty fortress with the skulls of its chivalrous men. Whenever a man dies in war, the fortress growers even higher, remaining ever so lofty and elevated!”

The International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation recently convened a private seminar for leading experts and practitioners to explore whether al Qaeda is in strategic decline. It is — but, as one distinguished participant warned, “Don’t underestimate the ability of a declining threat to inflict great damage on its way down.” The al Qaeda statement confirming bin Laden’s death on Friday suggests that the movement will seek to avenge its leader’s demise, promising further attacks against the United States that “will even make the hair of babies turn grey.”



I dread the thought of not having reliable sources such as Fox News to fill in the gaps on this weeks greatest mystery, Bin Laden’s death ‘again’.
Surely Fox could have come up with a more realistic tale  involving his last moments…. Let’s see how long this saga takes to get to the ‘Big Screen’ ….. something tells me the script was written years ago.
More news from the grave …..
“Osama bin Laden was scared and confused in his last moments, shoving his wife at the Navy SEAL who ultimately shot him.”
‘Bin Laden shoved his wife at soldiers’

Sources involved in covert operation shed light on last moments of al-Qaeda arch-terrorist. ‘He was scared, completely confused,’ sources tell Fox News


“Osama bin Laden was scared and confused in his last moments, shoving his wife at the Navy SEAL who ultimately shot him,” sources who were involved in the operation that killed al-Qaeda arch-terrorist told Fox News on Thursday.

According to the sources, a frightened bin Laden was unable to reach for his AK-47 and Makarov handgun, and tried blocking the soldiers by shoving his wife on them.

A White House senior official told Fox News that President Barack Obama on Friday is slated to meet with the team members of the force that was involved in the convert operation.
The source added that Obama met Thursday with Vice Admiral William H. McRaven – who according to The Washington Post commanded the operation – and “personally thanked him in the Oval Room.”
CNN network reported that despite the kidney disease that bin Laden allegedly suffered from for many years, no medical equipment was found in his Abbottabad compound.

Earlier it was reported that only one of the five people who were killed in the raid was armed and opened fire at the American SEALs.
No further information was revealed on what went on in bin Laden’s room, and the White House stressed that it will not disclose any further details.
However, sources reported that the exchange of fire only lasted several minutes, while the rest of the 40-minute-long mission was devoted to collecting computers and documents that may contain valuable information about al-Qaeda.


The zionists seem more distressed by foreign reports dealing with Wednesday’s ‘terror attack’ than by the attack itself. How can they continue with their ‘victim status’ if the western press doesn’t play along with them? Surely Foxman will come forth with a condemnation regarding this situation shortly. How else can he continue at his job if he doesn’t expose such blatant anti-Semitism?


Today they continue ‘kvetching‘ as can be seen in the following report from Ynet….

Terror in J’lem? ‘Palestinian strike,’ Reuters says  

Reuters shies away from characterizing Jerusalem bombing as terror attack, referring to it as ‘Palestinian strike.’ Responding to Ynet inquiry, news agency says ‘it is not up to Reuters to say who carried out attack’

In covering Wednesday’s terror attack in Jerusalem the Reuters news agency was loath to declare a Palestinian terrorist group was behind the bombing.

“Police said it was a ‘terrorist attack’ – Israel’s term for a Palestinian strike,” Reuters reported Wednesday. Many foreign media outlets based their reports on Reuters which described the incident as a “Palestinian strike.”

Among them was Sky News, which later corrected its report, as well as Yahoo News and Swiss Info. CNN was also careful not to place responsibility for the attack on the Palestinians. A report about Israel’s complaint to the Security Council following the attack stated that Israel had described the explosion as a terror attack.

Reuters’ report of Wednesday attack

Earlier this month, Israel demanded an apology from CNN over its coverage of the terrorist attack in Itamar claiming it was “tendentious and deceptive.” A CNN website report avoided describing the event as a terror attack, noting that the Israel Defense Forces consider it an act of terrorism.

Reuters told Ynet in response: “It is not up to Reuters to say who carried out an attack. We always need to quote the authorities, such as the police. On Wednesday, Israeli police used the Hebrew word “peegooa”, without specifically mentioning the Palestinians – but in the local context it is clear that this is who they were referring to. We spelt that out to an international audience to clarify precisely who was being blamed.

“We were certainly not trying to give a judgment value. We were simply seeking to present the facts, with all the correct attribution.

“We have used the same approach for years. This is not a policy we apply only to the Middle East conflict. It is a policy which we use across the globe in all situations.”


At least the ones that sit in the Israeli Knesset do

The top spender on cell phone services was MK Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta’al), who paid NIS 51,094 ($14,343) on phones and related bills. Overall, Tibi was ninth on the public communication top-spender list.

Perhaps there’s a ‘method to his madness’ ….. every $hekel spent on his phone bill is one less $hekel available to buy a bullet to kill a Palestinian child 😉

Caught in the act 😉

With all the madness that is going on in Israel today, Ynet found the following newsworthy. I guess it’s easier than sending out an investigative reporter to determine if the terror attack on the Jewish settlement might have been the doings of a Thai worker rather than a Palestinian… methinks that wouldn’t take too long to prove or disprove… BUT… in the meantime, the following is what the Israeli reader is given to divert the issues of reality and once again raise questions about ‘disloyal’ Palestinians…..

Arab MKs ‘biggest spenders’ in Knesset  

MKs Tibi, Zahalka spend most on cell phones while Barak, Lieberman scrimp on public communication

Arab MKs Ibrahim Sarsur (United Arab List-Ta’al ) and Jamal Zahalka (Balad) were the highest spenders of the Knesset’s public communication budget, according to a report released recently.

Sarsur took the lead in public communication spending with a total expenditure of NIS 86,565 ($24,330), and Zahalka came in second with NIS 83,139 ($23,374). MK Uri Ariel (National Union) was a close third, with NIS 83,045 ($23,320).

According to the report, Sarsur spent NIS 36,266 ($10,202) on printing materials, NIS 18,108 ($5,093) on leasing a parliamentary office outside the Knesset and NIS 9,711 ($2,728) on cell phones and services. Zahalka spent more than NIS 20,000 ($5,618) on cell phone expenses and leasing a parliamentary office. He bought furniture for the facility for NIS 5,264 ($1,479), and a laptop for over NIS 10,000 ($2,810).

“All of the expenses were done legally, as per the instructions and guidelines of the Knesset,” Sarsur’s spokesman said. He noted that NIS 16,000 ($4,489) was a rollover from 2009’s budget.

Meanwhile, Ariel spent roughly NIS 35,000 ($9,841) on leasing a parliamentary office and NIS 20,000 ($7,029) on professional counseling.

“We are making efforts to work very modestly, and thank God, we are successful,” Ariel said. “I don’t have a coffee maker, flat-screen televisions or other luxuries on my budget. We know very well where each shekel went, and we are certain that the community got it back tenfold.”

Livni, Mofaz spend on counseling

The report also showed that MK Eli Aflalo (Kadima) paid more than NIS 5,000 ($1,405) on press clips, while MK Shai Hermesh (Kadima) spent more than NIS 7,000 ($1,967) on food and drinks for guests he entertained.

While she did not make the top ten list of spenders in the public communication category, Opposition chairwoman Tzipi Livni‘s expenditures reached as high as NIS 66, 487 ($18,655) in 2010. She spent 36,000 ($10,115) on professional counseling, NIS 6,000 ($1,685) on a laptop and NIS 4,000 ($1,123) on cell phones, among other expenses.

Livni’s rival for Kadima leadership, MK Shaul Mofaz, spent as much as 41,700 ($11,710) on professional counseling over the past year.

The top spender on cell phone services was MK Ahmad Tibi (United Arab List-Ta’al), who paid NIS 51,094 ($14,343) on phones and related bills. Overall, Tibi was ninth on the public communication top-spender list.

MK Faina Kirshenbaum (Yisrael Beiteinu), who was eighth on the list, spent NIS 11,534 ($3,235) on a single survey.

The Knesset allocates NIS 80,000 annually to each MK for public communication. MKs who did not stay within the budget received permission to do so from the Knesset accountant.

Barak, Lieberman scrimp on communication

Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov and Minister Yossi Peled were the highest-spending ministers – they paid NIS 47,000 ($13,185) and NIS 45,000 (12,625) respectively on public communication.

On the other end of the spectrum, National Infrastructure Minister Uzi Landau spent NIS 15,000 ($4,208) to stay in touch with the voters, while Education Minister Gideon Sa’ar and Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin spent NIS 9,000 ($2,525) each.

Even lower on the list are Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Minister Benny Begin, all of whom did not spend a penny of the public communication budget last year.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spent NIS 3,500 ($982) of the budget in 2010.


Worshipers were caught on camera crying over this action, reminiscent of darker days just 70 years ago …..

Fearing pro Israeli demonstrations after prayers, the New York Police Department denied access to observant Jews on their way to Sabbath services at the Fifth Avenue Synagogue this morning. This is one of the largest and most popular houses of worship in the city.

Abe Foxman, of the Anti Semite Defamation League, was among those denied access and issued a press release immediately afterwards condemning this action, saying it was the integral right of the Jewish people to hold demonstrations in support of Israel. The release stated that all people should be allowed to express their feelings of support towards a nation they held dear to their hearts.

If the above actually happened (which it didn’t) can you imagine the uproar it would create throughout every Jewish community in the world? Can you imagine the press coverage in every zionist controlled newspaper in the States?

But, when the following ACTUALLY happens, no one seems to give a damn….. just another case of ‘They are only Palestinians’!

Israel restricts access to Al-Aqsa mosque

JERUSALEM  — Access to Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa mosque compound was restricted Friday in a bid to prevent demonstrations in support of the Egyptian uprising after Muslim prayers, police said. 

“This Friday, we are forbidding access to the compound to men under 50 years old carrying an Israeli identity card,” police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Agence France-Presse.

The directive concerned Palestinians living in occupied East Jerusalem as well as Israeli citizens of Israel, he said.

All Palestinians from the occupied West Bank were barred, even if they had Israeli papers.

Only 6,000 faithful were able to participate in the prayers as a result of the measures, the Islamic Waqf endowment told AFP.

Rosenfeld said police had reinforced positions in the walled Old City, amid concerns violent demonstrations would be staged after Friday prayers in a show of solidarity with the popular uprising in Egypt.

But only sporadic incidents were reported in the neighborhood of Ras Al-Amoud, where young people threw stones at police who responded with tear gas, onlookers said.

The compound contains the Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Dome of the Rock and is the third holiest site in Islam after Mecca and Medina.





It is written in the Old Testament that if the mother of a child is Jewish, so is the child. That has been the premise of ‘who’s a Jew’ for centuries. New interpretations devised by those involved in Jewish Satanic thinking have asserted that a Jewish woman is forbidden to conceive a child with the sperm of a Gentile (especially an Arab).

This has gotten much press coverage in Israel as part of the general racist attitudes towards Arabs as viewed by the right wing rabbinical ‘lawmakers’ of the day. This latest round of Talmudic jibberish was covered on this blog in the following post BELOW THE BELT RACISM ~~ NON-KOSHER SPERM.

BUT…. what about the sperm of newly converted members of the ‘Tribe’, especially those converted during their years of service in the IDF? Do their sperm cells automatically take on the characteristics of a Jew, or is there still a danger that this just not be the case. There seems to be a difference of opinion among the rabbinical ‘sages’ of the day on this matter as can be seen in the following… if the conversion isn’t ‘kosher’, is their sperm?

The Ashkenazi ultra-Orthodox journal Yated Neeman launched a direct attack on Rabbi Ovadia Yosef, an adjudicator of religious law and spiritual leader of the political party Shas, over his decision to confirm that conversions to Judaism performed by military rabbis are legal from a religious standpoint.

The Yated Neeman article said that Yosef’s decision was shocking, a “desecration of God’s name,” and an inversion of clear decisions of religious law which will likely lead to “increased danger of major assimilation among the people of Israel.”

ASSIMILATION!!!!! God forbid!

The paragraphs in parenthesis are taken from this HaAretz article; Haredi journal: Rabbi Yosef’s approval of IDF conversions ‘a desecration’

As I see it the only thing being desecrated these days is the name of Jewish people themselves. The recent edicts of the rabbis have caused many people throughout the world look more carefully at the Jewish people as a whole, not realising that these rabbis speak for a, thankfully, small percentage of Jews and Israelis in general.

Those who chose to follow these misinformed ‘leaders’ of the Flock will eventually inbreed themselves out of existence. Perhaps only then will there be a reawakening of reality in the religious community.
