I continue to await the full force of Hurricane Sandy, headed pretty much directly at stately Elder Manor, and things will start to get really interesting this afternoon. I'm going on the assumption that my power will go out at one point between now and tomorrow morning.

So I'm queuing up as many posts as I can for tomorrow as the winds increase.

Oddly, my Google Nexus Galaxy phone has a built-in barometer. I don't understand why that would be considered a feature for a phone, even a smartphone, but I have been watching the numbers go down...and down....and down since yesterday. It was around 1000 mBar last night, but at 10:30 AM it was at 985, at 2:00 PM it is down to 972, at 3:45 it fell below 967. (I'm not adjusting for height above sea level.) (963 at 4:45.)

There is a neat map of US barometric pressure here.

Meanwhile, here are some links from Ian:

Peace Calling No Answer (video)

Douglas Murray: Palestinian Terrorists on the Payroll
British taxpayers are helping to pay the salaries of jailed bomb makers.
"Many British taxpayers, struggling to pay their family's way through a recession, might rightly wonder why their money is going to pay as much as £2,000 a month to people serving the longest sentences—those who have targeted Israeli buses and other civilian targets with suicide bombers, for instance. That is higher than the average wage in nearly all of Britain. You might be forgiven for wondering, if you were a struggling teaching assistant in the North of England, why failing to tick "suicide bomber" on your careers form should have left you so much worse off than a terrorist in the Middle East."

The Region: A friend who acts like an enemy is an enemy By Barry Rubin
"Here’s the issue: A number of supposed allies of the United States don’t act as friends. In fact, they are major headaches, often subverting US goals and interests. But to avoid conflict and, for Obama, to look successful to the domestic audience, Washington pretends that everything is fine."

From under the bus: A response to Efraim Halevy
"Halevy’s airbrushed “history” leaves out Republican then-president Nixon’s extraordinary backing of Israel in the Yom Kippur War, and Ronald Reagan’s formalization of strategic cooperation with Israel, which created the web of ties between the Pentagon and IDF and the progressive strengthening of Israel’s military capability still in effect today. He omits Republican presidents who fought bitterly against the United Nations’ “Zionism is Racism” resolution — and finally got that resolution repealed — and ignores then-president George W. Bush’s diplomatic cover for the Second Lebanon War."

Palestinian Elections: Which Fatah Won? by Khaled Abu Toameh
"Abbas's term in office expired in January 2009, but this has not stopped him from continuing to cling to power. In wake of the results of the local elections, it has become obvious that Abbas does not have a mandate -- even from his Fatah faction -- to embark on any significant political move, such as signing a peace treaty with Israel or applying for membership for a Palestinian state in the UN.
Instead of going to New York next month to ask for Palestinian membership, Abbas should stay in Ramallah and work toward reuniting and reforming Fatah before his political rivals drive him and his veteran loyalists out of office."

Egyptian authorities reportedly seize 1.7 million documents proving Jewish ownership of assets in Cairo
"Elaph, a Saudi-owned news site, reported that Egyptian police received notice that the packages were being held at a shipping company in the Nasser City district of Cairo. Upon arriving at the scene, police found over 1.7 million documents dating back to the 19th century, dealing with Jewish ownership of assets in Cairo. The documents, according to the security source speaking to the Saudi site, weighed over two tons."

The Strike on Sudan: A Lesson for Iran?
"A weekend paper showed two maps - a map marking the distance from Israel to Khartoum, and a map showing the distance from Israel to Iran. Significantly, the distance to Khartoum is quite a bit further and so, in this airstrike, Israel is sending another message to Iran."

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون
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.
