While Islamic Terror Raging Everywhere, Pres. Rivlin Attends Ramadan Meal in Israeli-Arab City

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

President Reuven Rivlin on Monday evening addressed an Iftar (daily Ramadan fast breaking feast) in the northern Israeli-Arab city of Sakhnin. The event was attended by municipal and faith community leaders from the Muslim and Druze communities.

“Yesterday we were all shocked by the massacre in Orlando, and I want to send my condolences to the families, and to the American nation, following this cowardly and criminal act of terrorism,” said the President, and continued, “We, too, are still in the shadow of the terror attack against us just last week, terrorism which is unrelenting toward us.”

Sakhnin, population 26,000, is located in the Lower Galilee, about 14 miles east of Acre. Its population is Arab, mostly Muslim, with a sizable Christian minority. Sakhnin is home to the largest population of the esoteric cult of Sufi Muslims in Israel—approximately 80 members. In 1976, Sakhnin was the site of the first Land Day marches, in which six Israeli Arabs were killed by Israeli forces during violent protests. Two more were killed in clashes during the 2000 Intifada.

President Rivlin stressed the need to stand united against terrorists and said, “It is hard not to see that the terrorists are acting in every way possible to undermine the remnants of trust and the fragmented remaining bridges between the two peoples. We must stand together, Jews, Christians and Muslims, against evil which sometimes claims to speak in God’s name, and we must insist on fighting for the message of religion as one of ‘choosing life.’ We must insist that murder and violence are the result of intellectual distortion which has nothing to do with a healthy religion. We cannot be silent and we cannot let those violating religion by committing atrocities in its name, to cast a stain on those of faith, or to destroy the fabric of our lives here together. As believers, we must not let our children, Jews and Arabs, grow up with a distorted understanding that religion equals terror and death, that religion means extremism.”

The President concluded by thanking his hosts, and expressed his hope for coexistence between the different communities of Israel. He said, “Our lives and your lives here in this country are intertwined. We are here together, and we will remain here together, and we should all learn and teach every day how to live a life of kindness and tolerance, a life of equality and fairness, a life that each and every one of us deserves and that we all deserve together.”

Sakhnin Mayor Mazen Ghanaym thanked the President and said, “You are a sensitive and caring person. We all condemn in the strongest terms all acts of violence.” Noting there is no real difference between Arabs in Israel and in the Palestinian Authority, Ghanaym said, “The distance from Ramallah to Jerusalem is just 15 minutes,” and, “We are working to promote employment, equal education, and peace.”

Ghanaym, who is also Chairman of the Arab Mayors’ Association, told the President, “Today in the Knesset is was announced by the Finance Minister that the five-year economic plan for the Arab community has been held up. We ask of you Mr. President to continue to work to see the program come into being.”

Back in February, the president hosted 67 heads of Arab municipalities as well as the directors-general of government ministries, to discuss the government’s new five-year plan to aid Arab cities.

On Monday night, the President assured Ghanaym that he would speak with Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon.

The five-year plan, which was announced last December by PM Netanyahu and Kahlon, will cost between $3 and $4 billion and increase funding for housing, education, employment of Arab women, infrastructure, welfare services and public transportation.

Obama’s Ridiculous Reaction

Monday, June 13th, 2016

I really wanted to take a break from politics and talk about something else besides radical Islamic terrorism and how liberals are giving in to them, but the recent attack in Orlando and the ridiculous reactions by POTUS and liberal minds across the globe leave me no choice. The entire situation reminds me of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

For those who are unfamiliar with the story, An Emperor hires two weavers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is unfit for his position or “hopelessly stupid”. Finally the weavers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him and the Emperor marches in procession before his nation. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the Emperor is wearing nothing at all and the cry is taken up by others. The Emperor suspects the assertion is true, but continues the procession.”

A radical Islamic terrorist walks into a restaurant in Tel Aviv or a bar in Orlando and murders innocent people. The reaction is anger and then there is a cry not to define this as a radical Islamic terrorist attack. The Mayor of Tel Aviv blames Israel and POTUS won’t even mention the words Islamic terror because telling the truth is not as important as faking like he sees the emperors clothes.

The terrorist was interviewed by the FBI TWICE(!!) for radical Islamic activity but allowed to legally acquire a gun because to refuse his constitutional right to bear arms based on his radical Islamic views alone would be considered racist in the liberal mind . Careful about pointing out that this was an Islamic terrorist attack, they will make fun of you for not seeing the Emperor’s invisible clothes. It doesn’t matter the terrorist swore allegiance to ISIS (that’s ISLAMIC State for those who were wondering), or that he screamed Allah Akhbar before shooting up 50 people, the liberals are still applauding the Emperor’s new clothes and call this a gun problem! The emperor is walking around as naked as he was on the day he was born, but if you dare say so, you are called a racist and deemed unfit for the enlightened “libertard” culture that is running around protecting those who want you dead!

THE EMPEROR IS %^& NAKED!

I will happily be that little kid to let the emperor know he is stark naked and his not so flattering figure is putting us all in danger!

Islamic terror is hitting all over the world! The left in Israel that are advocating making deals with terrorists as well as the liberals in the US or Europe that refuse to admit there is a problem called Islamic terror are part of the problem!

This is about gun control? REALLY!

Perhaps after 9/11 we should have outlawed planes!

Who finally killed the terrorist in Orlando?

Who killed the terrorist in TA? I believe it was someone with a gun!

If the bar would not have been run by liberals who decided to make it a gun free zone, perhaps there would be much less than 50 innocent people murdered and the terrorist would have been sent to his paradise much earlier.

The Muslims I know have publicly bashed those who carried out these attacks, but where is the vocal majority? Where are the mass Muslim demonstrations in Orlando against terrorists who are using their religion to murder people? Where were the mass Israeli Arab demonstrations in Israel against the terror attack in TA?

Egypt’s Chief Cleric Scolds Israel Over Nude Dancers in Holy City of Jerusalem

Saturday, May 28th, 2016

Now there is no doubt at all that the Messiah is most certainly on the way.

The Grand Mufti of Egypt, Shawki Ibrahim Abdel-Karim Allam scolded the People of Israel Saturday over the humiliation to the sanctity of the holy city being perpetrated by allowing a nude performance to take place in Jerusalem.

Allam warned Israel on Saturday that “More Than Naked,” a performance Friday by 12 nude dancers at the Jerusalem Theater that was part of the 55th Israel Festival, “contributed to the spread of terror, extremism and instability” in the region.

Moreover, he called the performance a ‘humiliation to the sanctity of the holy city,’ according to a report broadcast by Galei Tzahal Army Radio.

The remarks came a day after the show, by Austrian choreographer Doris Uhlich, appeared on stage at the Jerusalem Theater.

The Islamic cleric pointed out that the performance constituted an arousing provocation, and as such, was an offense to the sensibilities of observant followers of all three monotheistic faiths.

It is beyond ironic that it required the Islamic chief cleric of our southern neighbor, Egypt, of all nations, to remind the Jewish Nation of where to draw the line in encouraging “artistic” or “cultural” expression.

Members of the Jerusalem City Council were also upset to learn that they were funding a nude dance performance as part of the Israel Festival. It was decided that next year the Jerusalem city council will have to approve all performances before funding them.

Officials Facing Wildfire in Alberta, Canada Order Entire City Evacuated

Wednesday, May 4th, 2016

Officials in Alberta, Canada have ordered the mandatory evacuation of the entire city of Fort McMurray as an uncontrolled wildfire burns in the heart of the country’s oil sands region.

Some 80,000 city residents are affected by the order. Firefighters have appealed for assistance from other provinces to help airlift people from the city and fight the blaze, first seen on May 1.

The 2,650-hectare wildfire has shifted with the wind to close off the main southern exit from the city, forcing residents to head north towards the oil sands camps, Reuters reported.

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley told the news agency, “This is the biggest evacuation we have seen in the history of the province. We need to find more camps; we have secured spaces for about 6,000 people. We know we need to find more and that work is under way.”

Fort McMurray is located about six hundred miles north of the Montana border. Its surrounding area contains oil deposits more extensive than those of Saudi Arabia.

The city is also home to one of Canada’s fastest-growing Muslim communities, one that is moderate and led by Abdurrahmann Murad, a young “unity-inspiring” imam with a large online following.

Last year a new $50 million, 150,000-square-foot Islamic center project was launched there. The complex included a mosque with several prayer halls, K-12 school, recreation center and a swimming pool, as well as a playground and 475 parking spots.

Administrators of the mosque were quick to tell The Globe and Mail at the time that no foreign money had yet been donated. They also said they would never let any donor shape their doctrine. “We don’t accept any conditions. Even if it takes 1,000 years to build it, let it be,” said Abdulsalam Abdo, president of the mosque. “We don’t want to take orders from somewhere else.”

Israel Trying to ‘Conquer’ Al Aqsa on Passover, Islamic Agitators Warn. Again.

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

As predicted last week by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, “extremist groups” are trying to incite the Arab population to renewed violence by making wild claims about violations of the status quo on the Temple Mount over the Passover holiday.

At the forefront of this effort is the outlawed Islamic Movement, which is accusing Israel of trying to take over the Al Aqsa Mosque on the Temple Mosque during the holiday.

The deputy director of the organization, Sheikh Kamel al-Hatib, told Quds Press “extremist Jewish groups” led by the prime minister “and eight other ministers” (read: Israel’s government cabinet) are working to “break into” the mosque (read: allow Jews to visit the Temple Mount grounds) during the holiday.

According to Hatib, the Israeli government and IDF are facilitating the “intended conquest.”

Such claims are not new, and the same old tired retreads are yanked out of mothballs for every Jewish festival. Nevertheless, there are those in the Arab population who are vulnerable and still somehow believe the fantasies no matter how silly, how embroidered, outrageous or how often the lie is retold.

The Islamic Movement in Israel was outlawed in November 2015 for incitement to racism and violence. The leader of the movement’s northern branch, Sheikh Raed Salah, has been convicted of funding Hamas, and of contact with an Iranian intelligence agent.

He also served time in an Israeli prison from 2003 to 2005, and a five-month term in 2010. Salah is known for repeatedly exhorting his followers as well as Israeli Arab students at universities to “keep fighting until we remove the Israeli occupation and free the holy Jerusalem.”

Organization of Islamic Cooperation to Meet on Israeli ‘Escalation’ in Golan Heights

Sunday, April 24th, 2016

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) will meet Tuesday to discuss what is being called “the Israeli escalation against the occupied Syrian Golan.” The driving force behind the meeting was a request by Kuwait, which holds the rotating chair of the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers.

Kuwait wants the group to ‘take a unified and strong position… on the Israeli government’s [cabinet meeting] held in the occupied Syrian Golan” — that is, the government held its cabinet meeting last week for the first time on the Israeli Golan Heights, ruffling just about everyone’s feathers that day except those in Israel.

The Arab nation was likewise upset by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks on that day, in which he stated “the Golan Heights will forever remain under Israeli sovereignty.”

This is not news to any Israeli — after all,the Golan was annexed to Israel decades ago, in 1981 – but the OIC considered the statement a provocation. A statement released by the Arab organization named it a “serious escalation and flagrant violation of the resolutions of international legitimacy and international law.”

In fact, every single bit of territory won by Israel in the 1967 Six Day war – a defensive, existential war for survival – is still in fact considered by the international community a violation of some resolution or regulation decided in the global forum.

Last Thursday a similar meeting was held by the Arab League, calling for a special criminal court to hold a session on Israel. European nations such as Germany joined the United States – Israel’s “best friend” – and Syria in their condemnation of Netanyahu’s statement.

The move by the U.S. was particularly odd, given that Netanyahu has been especially careful not to criticize President Barack Obama publicly in any way despite provocations by his staff.

For half a century, half of the Golan Heights has been a sovereign part of the State of Israel. Prime Minister Netanyahu simply reiterated the fact that it is not realistic nor sane to expect the state to return such a strategic territory to an enemy nation bent upon Israel’s destruction.
