ISIS Beheads Two Women for Sorcery and Witchcraft

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

The Islamic State (ISIS) has beheaded two women, along with their husbands, for allegedly practicing witchcraft and sorcery, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights

The executions took place Sunday and Monday in two different villages. ISIS previously has executed dozens of women, but usually for adultery and by stoning or by a firing squad.

It also has beheaded foreign women, but this is the first time the Satanic Islamic group has decapitated women for not following Sharia law.

For the record, according to the Observatory, ISIS had has been busy the past 12 months executing 86 women and 74 children among its 1,800 civilian victims,

The executioners earlier this month crucified two children for not fasting during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Its thirst for displaying the most terrifying pictures possible would seem to have left no room for more monstrosities, but that has been said in the past and has been disproven every time.

An Observatory official explained that the beheadings of the alleged sorcerers may have been an attempt to scare other women into showing up at mosques for prayers five times a day.

The world keeps trying to fight the ISIS from the air, but there has been no unified and determined alliance to make eliminating the insane group the most urgent and important priority.

The only unified mission that United Nations has been able to come up with is the U.N. Human Rights Council condemnation of Israel for the sin of Jews living in half of Jerusalem, the Golan Heights Judea and Samaria.

If there were only some way to get the Jews out of those areas, maybe the ISIS would disappear, right?

It sounds stupid and almost funny, but if you don’t think it is true, click here.

Pro-Israel Rally at UNHRC in Geneva

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Some 1,000 demonstrators attended a rally Monday at the Place des Nations in Geneva to express their support for the State of Israel as the United Nations Human Rights Council held its debate on Israel and the Schabes Report on last summer’s counter terror operation in Gaza.

Members and supporters of more than 80 NGOs, including many Jews and Christians, travelled to the Swiss city to express their support for the Jewish state and to urge the U.N. to treat Israel fairly.

“The reason we are here today is to tell the United Nations that it needs to change. It needs to overcome its obsession with Israel,” said World Jewish Congress (WJC) CEO Robert Singer. “This obsession is destructive and it stands in the way of an effective human rights policy that is so badly needed.”

Singer insisted that Israel had a right to defend itself against Hamas. “Gaza is still an occupied territory, but the occupier is not Israel. It’s a terrorist movement called Hamas. Blaming Israel for every woe has become a sport. Not just here at the U.N., but here especially.”

A resident of Gaza Belt community Kibbutz Aza, located just a kilometer away from the southern border (less than a mile), Ofir Libstein also traveled to Geneva to attend the rally. Libstein said, “My four little sons were born into a 15-second reality – the time between the rocket alert and the explosion. By the time they turned two, we had already trained them to run for cover.

“Nitzan, my 11-year-old, was waiting for his soccer training to begin when a rocket attack started. Ever since, he has not been able to sleep by himself. Every alert and every explosion makes him relive the attack.”

Another resident of the area, Adele Raemer of Kibbutz Nirim, described how residents of the kibbutz were nearly murdered last year when terrorists emerged from an attack tunnel.

“I am disappointed by the tone at times of the Human Rights Council, which insinuates that Israel does not demand accountability from her army. I know that in the process of protecting my community, our soldiers have put their lives at risk to save innocent Palestinian lives, aborting vital missions when non-combatant Palestinians were in harm’s way. We all need to be able to raise the next generation to respect our neighbors, not fear them,” she added. This is clearly not a conflict that can be resolved by weapons. It can only be resolved by courageous leaders and diplomacy.”

Pre-Occupied UN Human Rights Council Debates One Issue – Israel

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Iran and Syria headlined the wolf pack verbal assault on Israel at today’s 29th session of the U.N. Human Rights Council’s pre-occupation with the “occupation.”

This is the first time I ever have watched this much-talked about about circus, but none of the previous reports of the Council’s Israel bashing could have prepared anyone for what must be described as a humanitarian disaster.

Country after country attacked Israel for apartheid, occupation, violation of human rights and freedom, searches on the Al Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount, crimes and the violations of human rights. Morocco claimed that Israel is harming the “Islamic identity” of Jerusalem.

Qatar’s representative stated that Israel is not serious about peace, and charged that Israeli forces “have taken control of the third flotilla that was going to Gaza.”

Syria alleged that Israel is supporting terrorists in the Golan Heights, with the backing of the United States.

Saudi Arabia’s official noted that Israel ignores “any human rights norms” but that “many countries” do not condemn Israel, making the Council powerless to “give rights back to Palestinians under occupation.”

And the Palestinian Authority? It said that Israel is the biggest violator in the world of human rights.

China said the “Palestinian issue” is the “heart” of problems in the Middle East.

And in other news this week, Iran has passed a bill that allows men to marry their adopted children to protect their daughters from being married off.

According to Amnesty, Iran also made a retrogressive amendment in Iran’s new Code of Criminal Procedures, limiting the right to access an independent lawyer of one’s choice during primary investigations in certain criminal cases.

In Syria, Assad’s forces killed 13 civilians and wounded dozens of others in a barrel bomb attack.

Christian Today reported Monday:

Things have taken a turn for the worse for Asia Bibi, 50, the falsely accused Christian woman who has been languishing in Pakistani prison for six years now despite her declining health.

Bibi was accused of blasphemy in Pakistan for sharing her faith in God to other women, according to Bruce Allen of Forgotten Missionaries International. She was then sentenced to death, although an appeal has been filed at the Supreme Court with no news yet on when her case will be heard.

And in Saudi Arabia, the ministry said it support internationally recognized human rights but not those that are specific to homosexuals.

As noted above, today is the first time I ever watched the live video of the United Nations so-called Human Rights Council.

God willing, this will be the last time, also.

The Last of the Flotillas

Monday, June 29th, 2015

The flotilla stunt has sunk.

This morning’s end to the latest maritime Vaudeville act by a motley collection of anarchists, anti-Israel activists including an Arab Knesset Member, leftists and bored people looking for adventure may be the last attempt to break the Israel blockade to prevent terrorists and weapons from reaching Gaza by sea.

International media have not been able to whip up much anti-Israel rhetoric in their news dispatches of the peaceful takeover of the Marianne and the apparent U-turn by three other boats in the flotilla.

The voyage of the Marianne may have been the best thing for Israel since earlier this month when Hamas fired a Kassam rocket at Israeli civilians but saw it fall short of its mark and explode on a house in Gaza.

The only real success of Hamas, and the entire Palestinian Authority, has been to turn self-defeat into a principle.

Pro-Hamas activists have been trying to break the maritime blockade for more than six years, but their main aim has been to fuel the anti-Israeli media with stories about how the Israeli army is stopping good Samaritans from trying to save Gazans caught in a humanitarian crisis caused by the presumably heartless land blockade by Israel.

The establishment media finally has broken under the weight of the lies in claims by anti-Zionists.

Israel’s land “blockade” on Gaza barely exists anymore, except from Egypt, which has punished Hamas over and over by shutting down the Rafah crossing.

The maritime blockade has been upheld by none other than the United Nations, which investigated the clash on the May 2010 Mavi Mamara ship that was organized and led by Turkish-based terrorists of the IHH organization.

The U.N. report managed to criticize the IDF for using excessive force but upheld the maritime embargo as legal.

Flotilla activists have known ever since then that attacking Israeli soldiers, as the terrorist did with iron clubs on the Mavi Mamara, is going to be met with necessary force.

The crew and passengers on the Marianne did not raise a hand. The Navy commandeered the boat and took it to the port of Ashdod, where the foreigners will be deported and the Israelis will return home, with or without being arrested.

Passengers on the other boats deported themselves by choice when they decided not to follow the example of the Marianne, whose activists have set a precedent not resort to violence.

That will make it more difficult for future flotilla activists to start up with the Navy, which under any circumstances is going to win the battle.

The activists’ hope that the media would treat them as little Davids fighting a monstrous Goliath disappeared like a ship in the middle of the night.

Hamas’ open corruption and barbaric force against anyone who opposes it have torn the sails out of lies that the miserable lives of Arabs in Gaza are due to anyone or anything except Hamas.

Reuters reported the takeover of the Marianne factually and dryly, except for referring to Gaza as “the blockaded Palestinian territory,” unless it meant blockaded by Egypt.

The Associated Press was even briefer in its report.

BBC and NBC also were factual and objective in their dispatches.

The flotilla has wasted more tens for thousands of dollars. There always will be other do-good haters willing to shell out more money for another failure.

Let’em go for broke.

Rivlin Asked Terror Victim’s Family, ‘Why Didn’t He Carry a Gun’

Sunday, June 28th, 2015

President Reuven Rivlin is proving himself to be the wrong man for the job.

He visited the family of terror victim Danny Gonen last week to express his condolences but instead stabbed the relatives in the heart with the comment by asking them why he was not carrying a gun.

Gonen, from the city of Lod near Ben Gurion Airport, was killed and a companion was wounded by a Palestinian Authority terrorist when they were hiking near Dolev, a community in Samaria. The attacker still is at large.

Yediot Acharonot reported that the family was shocked and bitterly upset by the insensitive remark, which implied that Gonen was guilty of being murdered because he did not carry a weapon when hiking,

Not even his Rivlin’s predecessor Shimon Peres would have made such a tactless statement.

It could have been worse. He could have asked the family why Gonen even stepped foot into Judea and Samaria, but Rivlin has not gone that far, at least not yet.

The family did not respond to Rivlin’s remark, but Gonen’s wounded friend Natanel Hadad did not remain silent.

He reportedly said to the President:

Danny posted a sharp criticism when there was arson here at a Jewish kindergarten here in Lod, and you remained silent and did not condemn it.

Rivlin did not have the courage to apologize for his tactless remark and instead shot back at Hadad, “For everyone who thinks like him [Hadad], there are 300 who think like me.”

President Rivlin left the house where the relatives were sitting shiva and tried to call Gonen’s mother on Friday. She refused to speak with him.

The family issued a statement:

We strongly condemn the remark by the President that our son did carry a weapon, and we call on the President to come with us on Friday to visit the spring {where they were hiking] without a weapon.

The office of the President issued a remarkably dumb statement that “we share the sorrow of the family that lost their son.” Rivlin, so politically correct for the United Nations, couldn’t even bring himself to emphasize that Gonen was a victim of Palestinian Authority terror.

It is difficult to be nostalgic for Shimon Peres, who may have thought exactly like Rivlin and probably thinks that Jews really shouldn’t live in most of Judea and Samaria, but he certainly had enough sense at least to act out the part of someone who is supposed to show sympathy.

Palestinian Authority Terrorist Fires on Jewish Ambulance in Samaria

Saturday, June 27th, 2015

A Palestinian Authority terrorist fired on a Magen David Adom ambulance near Beit El in Samaria Saturday night.

The ambulance sustained damage, but no one was injured.

The IDF is searching for the terrorist.

Last week, Druze in the Golan Heights ambushed an IDF ambulance that was carrying victims that were wounded in the civil war in Syria.

Attacking an ambulance is a war crime, but the United Nations is unlikely to pay any attention since it was not an Israeli Jew who attacked the vehicle.

Netanyahu Notes UNHRC’s ‘Singular Obsession With Israel’ in The Schabes Report

Netanyahu Notes UNHRC ‘Singular Obsession With Israel’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu noted Monday in a statement to media that once again, a United Nations “independent commission” tasked with investigating a conflict between Israel and Palestinian Authority terrorists has produced a biased report.

Speaking to reporters about The Schabes Report released Monday afternoon (June 22, 2015) by the Independent Commission of Inquiry, Netanyahu pointed out, “Israel is a democracy committed to the rule of law.

“Time and again it is forced to defend itself against Palestinian terrorists who commit a double war crime: They deliberately target civilians while deliberately hiding behind Palestinian civilians. The Palestinians civilians they use as human shields include children, and they deliberately target our civilians while deliberately putting their civilians in harm’s way.”

The report did not mention the term “human shields” even once in its 34-page advance executive summary.

“In defending itself against such attacks, Israel’s military acted, and acts, according to the highest international standards,” Netanyahu said. During the conflict, the IDF dropped countless leaflets written in Arabic over areas marked for battle due to the numerous military targets within: each time, the leaflets warned residents to evacuate the area due to an impending battle. The flyers were followed up with automated phone calls to house phone lines and text messages to cell phones, in Arabic. Yet the Commission nevertheless insisted the IDF did not take enough measures to ensure Gaza’s civilian survival.

“The report in hand was commissioned by a notoriously biased institution; it was given an obviously biased mandate; it was initially headed by a grossly biased chairperson who received money from the Palestinians and was forced to resign.”

The Commission chairperson, Professor William Schabes, was found to have been a former legal adviser to the Palestine Liberation Organization – a clear conflict of interest. When this information was made public by Israel, Schabes had no other recourse but to resign his post, which he did in February 2015, just one month prior to the completion of the probe.

“The United Nations Human Rights Council has a singular obsession with Israel,” Netanyahu observed. “It has passed more resolutions against Israel than against Syria, North Korea and Iran combined. In fact, it has passed more resolutions against Israel that against all the countries of the world combined.

“So, Israel treats this report as flawed and biased, and it urges all fair-minded observers to do the same.

“Such fair-minded observers recently investigated Israel’s conduct in the Gaza campaign. They include senior generals from the United States and NATO countries. They found that not only did Israel uphold the highest standards of international law, in the laws of armed conflict, they said that Israel exceeded the highest standards.

“Israel will continue to uphold its commitment to the laws of armed conflict despite the brutal tactics of its enemies,” Netanyahu continued, “and it will continue to investigate any allegations of wrongdoing in accordance with highest international standards.”
