From Ian:



Behind the Lines: Serving from the heart
“The Nahal Brigade’s southern base is home to a growing number of lone soldiers, for whom the term ‘armchair Zionists’ is alien.”

An interesting article on the Levy Report. With a few examples of how land claims are settled, in Judea and Samaria.
The Edmond Levy revolution
“Levy even tackles Jordanian law, which forbids the sale of land to Jews in Judea and Samaria. He proposes that this law be invalidated by dint of a special military decree. If anyone wishes to get a better idea of what is being discussed, they could revisit the issue of the Machpelah House in Hebron, which was purchased by Jews but evicted on the orders of Defense Minister Ehud Barak because the Jewish buyers did not possess transaction permits and other documents, some of which Levy proposes be canceled.”

Islamist Generation Today’s Muslim youth are less Westernized than their parents were. By Mark Steyn
“In the first ever poll of Irish Muslims, 37 percent said they would like Ireland to be governed by Islamic law. When the same question was put to young Irish Muslims, it was 57 percent. In other words, the hope’n’change generation are less Westernized than their parents. Thirty-six percent of young British Muslims think the penalty for apostasy — i.e., leaving Islam — should be death. Had you asked the same question of British Muslims in 1970, I doubt the enthusiasts would have cracked double figures.”
(BTW Mark mentions and so have I, the report that Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud from Bahrain called for Morsi to “destroy the Pyramids. Apparently this is a hoax from a satirical twitter account. soz.)

Another glimpse into delusional British attitudes to Israel
"A recent speech given by the British Ambassador to the Knesset reveals yet more about the FCO's underlying attitudes towards Israel"
“The FCO appears to be determined to proceed along its well-trodden route of failed policies based upon willfully blind misinterpretations of the Middle East tailored to protect its own perceived interests. Whether or not those interests are identical to those of a government purportedly seeking (for all too obvious reasons) to strengthen economic ties with Israel is another question. How the FCO's policies tie in with the current government's past statements regarding its commitment to Israel's security – as well as its own domestic struggles against extremism - is yet another. “

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 11 years and over 23,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
