Sarah Honig: Another Tack: Bad Jews = Good story
Hypercritical news-purveyors need to own up that their heartstrings are never tugged by the indisputably intentional murders of Israeli babies like ten-months-old Shalhevet Pass or three-months-old Hadas Fogel (and way too many others).
Israeli babies whose lives were cut short by Arab rockets, by suicide bombers, by fire-bombers, by rock hurlers, by snipers who coolly pulled the trigger or – close-up and gruesomely personal – by knife-wielding butchers, didn’t inspire tearjerker coverage about their lost smiles or their family’s grief. Their images never dominated the front pages. At most they were described as generic “Israelis” or “settlers” but never as sympathy-stimulating real individuals, with specific ages, names and faces.
David Horovitz: Obama stirs young Israelis with the passionate speech of a left-wing Zionist
The core premise of the president’s address was that if Israel only pushes harder for reconciliation, regional hostility will gradually melt. Israelis are thoroughly divided on that, and he was at rhetorical best in trying to move them

US unblocks $500 million in aid to Palestinians
State Dept. announces move on the heels of Obama’s visit to Israel, West Bank; US president asks Abbas to avoid ICC, says report
In a meeting with PA President Mahmoud Abbas on Thursday in Ramallah, however, Obama reportedly asked the Palestinian leader to refrain from turning to the International Criminal Court “for any reason,” including settlement expansion. The PA has consistently threatened to address its grievances against Israel at the Hague in recent months.
Jerusalem speech through lens of Arab media: 'Obama the sycophant'
Arab world has slightly different take on US President's Jerusalem speech, claiming he fawns over Israel and seeks to please Israeli leaders and public
Media Report Arab Heckler as Pro-Pollard Jew
When President Barack Obama was heckled during a speech to Israeli students in Jerusalem on Thursday, the U.S. media reported that the heckler was a student calling for the release of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard. On CNN, Wolf Blitzer even devoted an entire segment to the issue. However, Israeli media reported that the hecker was apparently an Israeli Arab student, shouting at Obama about the Palestinians rather than about Pollard.
Oppressed Palestinian People Too Busy Training Suicide Bombers to Train Musicians
It goes without saying that I blame Israel for this amazing musical rendition of the National Anthem. If only it wasn’t for the occupation, Abbas could have used all those billions of dollars in foreign aid to train a marching band above the level of your six-year old’s tin can orchestra.

The systematic obliteration of Islam's cultural heritage
It's a sad reality that we can expect most Muslims to continue focusing on cartoons and YouTube videos whilst Islam's cultural heritage is systemically wiped out
A report by Jerome Taylor, that appeared in the Independent last Friday, stated:
The Washington-based Gulf Institute estimates that 95 per cent of Mecca's millennium-old buildings have been demolished in the past two decades alone. Dozens of key historical sites dating back to the birth of Islam have already been lost and there is a scramble among archaeologists and academics to try and encourage the authorities to preserve what little remains.
Selective BBC reporting on hacking of its own Twitter account
In actual fact, some of the Tweets were considerably less benign than the BBC tries to make out in this article, with one making a Helen Thomas-style suggestion that residents of Haifa should “return to Poland” and another portraying a nuclear attack on Tel Aviv.
Palestinian Authority in freefall as Abbas claims he will "sack Fayyad"
Reports have claimed that even with Obama's ringing endorsement of Abbas and Fayyad, the former is due to sack the latter due to an ongoing dispute
Meanwhile, Fatah senior leader in the Gaza Strip, Amal Hamad, described salary cuts to Fatah members in Gaza as "a disaster" with "disastrous consequences for the citizens who live in an already deteriorated economic situation."
The Washington Free Beacon reports that Abbas reportedly stopped talking to Fayyad in April 2012 after Fayyad refused to deliver a letter to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The PA’s major donors, chief among them the United States, have long made it clear that they do not want Abbas to push Fayyad out of the government.

Cause of blast still unknown, witnesses claim they saw an object fall from the sky near a house in Rafah
Hamas files complaint with Cairo over fishing ban
Mujahideen Shura Council, al-Qaeda-linked group responsible for Thursday’s rocket barrage, says Hamas arrested two of its members
Lebanese PM resigns over dispute with Hezbollah
Resignation announced just three months before planned election; Mikati says move will "pull Lebanon out of an unknown tunnel."
Mikati resigned just two hours after a cabinet meeting in which Shi'ite group Hezbollah and its allies blocked the creation of a supervisory body for the parliamentary vote and opposed extending the term of a senior security official.
Major General Ashraf Rifi, head of Lebanon's internal security forces, is due to retire early next month. Rifi, like Mikati, is a Sunni Muslim from Tripoli, and is distrusted by Hezbollah.

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 12 years and over 25,000 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.
