Livni ‘Hopes’ Jerusalem Won’t be Divided

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Tzipi Livni, who hopes to be rotating Prime Minister with Yitzchak Herzog after the March elections, said today she doesn’t want Jerusalem to be divided, but as for whether it will happen, she “hops not.”

She made the comment in an interview with The Jerusalem Post, in which said that dividing Jerusalem would be “part of the negotiations” with the Palestinian Authority.

Theoretically, she was being very honest since no one knows what will be tomorrow, let alone two months from now.

But that kind of intellectual honesty is not exactly what voters want to hear when it comes to knowing in whose to deliver the fate of Jerusalem, and of Israel.

“I hope not” is not going to convince anyone on the left or the right of Livni’s ability to stand up for what she thinks is right, unless the correct policy is to blow with the wind out of Ramallah.

Livni and Herzog suffer from an image of lack of strength, especially when it comes to security. That is Netanyahu’s ace in the hole.

But even worse for Herzog-Livni than the “I hope jot” position is the ridiculous notion of talking about “negotiations.”

Either Livni is parroting John Jerry or she really is out of the loop.

Palestinian Authority official “negotiator” said this week that relations with Israel have reached “the point of no return.”

He could have said that three years ago.

 

 

 

Israel May Have Been ‘Faking’ That Killing Iranian General Was a Fluke

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

Israel knew exactly who it was eliminating an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general in Sunday’s strike on Iranian and Hezbollah forces, according to the usually reliable al-Rai Kuwaiti newspaper.

First reports of Sunday’s attack on terrorists, known as “fighters” in sterile MediaSpeak, indicated that the aerial bombing wiped out six Hezbollah members, including a top General and an Iranian soldier.

Israel, of course, played dumb.

Reports from Iran began to surface that six Iranians were also killed including a Guards commander, and anonymous Israel officials told foreign wire services, “Huh?”

Israel’s intelligence is unarguably the best in the world. It occasional slips up, but it usually is on the mark. But someone in the top echelon was trying to sell a story that, yes, the IDF attacked terrorists who were planning to launch attacks on Israel, but did not know that one of the targets was Iranian General Mohammed Allahdadi.

Then the threats poured in like Hezbollah missiles during the Second Lebanon War. Revenge will come. Israel is doomed. Run for the sea.

Israel media analysts had a field day clawing Israeli intelligence to bits.

No one thought “out of the box” and suggested that maybe Israel was faking it to convince the Iranians, “Gee, sorry. It was an accident.”

It might have been, but it is difficult to believe that Israeli intelligence knew so many details that it was able to pinpoint the targets without knowing exactly who they are.

Prison Guards Gunned down Tel Aviv Terrorist

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

A prison guard unit was credited with gunning down the Arab terrorist who stabbed the driver and nine passengers on a local bus in Tel Aviv Wednesday morning.

The unit was coincidentally driving behind the bus when the guards noticed the bus moving in a reckless manner. At the time, they did not know that the bus driver had been stabbed and had lost full control of the vehicle.

The bus finally came to a stop, and the terrorist and passengers rushed out of the bus.

The guards immediately chased after the attacker, shot in the air and then at his legs when he refused to stop.

BREAKING: Terrorist Stabs Passengers on Bus in Tel Aviv

Wednesday, January 21st, 2015

An Arab terrorist stabbed the driver and several passengers on a crowded Dan bus on line 40 in central Tel Aviv shortly after 7:15 Wednesday morning. He was shot and  was wounded and is the custody of the police.

The terrorist attacked the driver several times and then plunged his knife at passengers before escaping, with his knife in hand.

Passengers ran after the terrorist, who apparently was shot by a police or security officer.

Magen David Adom said their medics evacuated 10 people, two of them seriously or critically wounded.

All of the victims have been taken from the scene, including five who are being treated for shock.

Police are investigating if the terrorist acted on his own. He is from Tulkarm, east of Netanya.

Hamas praised the attack as “natural reaction” to the “occupation” but did not take responsibility for the stabbings,

Herzog-Livni Drafts Potential Defense Minister

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

The merged Labor party, AKA the “Zionist Camp” headed by Yitzchak Herzog and Tzipi Livni, has drafted former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin to fill its vacuum for a future Defense Minister if it forms the next government.

Israel Radio (Voice of Israel) was quick to promote Yadlin Tuesday morning with soft-glove questions that allowed him to show off his knowledge.

He divulged the astounding opinion that anyone who wants to kill Israelis should be killed first, apparently a revolutionary concept for Israel Radio, which has a blatant leftist agenda even though it is supposed to be non-political.

ISIS Ultimatum to Japan: $200 Million or Execution of Two Japanese Citizens

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has released a video in which it demands $200 million from the Japanese government to save the lives of two its citizens being held hostage.

The ransom matches the same sum of money that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe pledged last week for non-military assistance to countries fighting the ISIS.

“Should we leave terrorism or weapons of mass destruction to spread in this region, the loss imparted upon the international community would be immeasurable,” said Abe, who by coincidence or not is visiting in Israel at the time ISIS posted its ultimatum.

The hostages were identified as journalist Kenji Goto Jogo and private military contractor Haruna Yukawa, who traveled to Syria for unknown reasons.

The audio in the video, which YouTube has banned, features a British-accented man, probably the same barbarian who beheaded other hostages.

He said to Japan in the video, “You have proudly donated $100 million to kill our women and children, to destroy the homes of the Muslims.” The actual amount was $200 million, which the ISIS badly needs to funds is operations in the wake of falling revenues from the plunge in the price of oil, on which it has depended for revenues.

The ISIS has attracted members from all over the world, including Japan. An Israeli official has said that nine Japanese citizens have joined the ranks of the ISIS.
