None of the Anti-Israel crowd mentions the Other Front in the Gaza War…. so I will.
Here is an article about what has been occurring on the other side of the Gaza Strip. The Egyptians are Jews also aren’t they? They must be since they feel the need to do the same thing the Israeli’s are doing.
Egypt army destroys 13 more Gaza tunnels
Cairo (AFP) – Egypt’s army said Sunday it has destroyed 13 more tunnels connecting the Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip, taking to 1,639 the overall number it has laid waste to.
Cairo has poured troops into the peninsula to counter a rising insurgency since the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi last year, and its security operation involves the destruction of these tunnels.
The Palestinian militant group Hamas, which is the main power in Gaza, reportedly uses the tunnels to smuggle arms, food and money into the blockaded coastal enclave.
Israel has been waging a military offensive on Gaza since July 8 to halt rocket fire, and it launched a ground assault on July 17 aimed at destroying the network of tunnels.
It accuses Hamas of using the tunnels to attacks on Israel.
Ties between Hamas and Cairo have deteriorated since the Egyptian army deposed Morsi on July 3, 2013. Hamas is an affiliate of Morsi’s Muslim Brotherhood.
Cairo also accuses of Hamas of being involved in militant attacks inside Egypt, which have multiplied since Morsi was toppled.
Militant groups say their attacks are in retaliation for a police crackdown on Morsi’s supporters. The crackdown has seen more than 1,400 people killed in street clashes.
Maybe all those around the Palestinians know they’re a threat that must be destroyed….
I saw this announcement this morning. It’s 100 days till the U.S. Midterm Elections. The big chat is whether or not the Republicans will gain control of the Senate. There is no doubt they keep the house. They need 6 seats to take the Senate.
It is going to be close, 3 should be shoe ins and 3 are a flip of the coin. Personally I hope they don’t get control. The best thing for the longterm outcome for Conservatives is 2 more years of the same. If the Republicans gain control nothing will be able to be passed that will change a single Obama or Democrat Policy.
They will lack a veto proof majority, and Obama will veto everything that is passed. No matter who controls the Senate nothing will change except that the Press will blame every problem the Nation is going through on the Republicans.
So here is to the Democrats, May you succeed in keeping your majority. God bless Gridlock.
I was listening this morning to the various themes on the BBC Sunday religion programme, and suddenly I realised that I was truly in the strange world of BBC-biased-righteousness.
The bloke being interviewed, if you can call a one-sided diatribe an interview, was a member of the rapidly-decreasing Christian population of Iraq, and of Mosul, now of course ruled by the thugs of the Islamic State. He was complaining that he and his fellow Christians were forced out from their homes and jobs because they were Christians, and because they would not accept f***king Mohammed and become Muslim. Fair enough, he may have had a point, but only maybe; after all, what business is it of mine what God you pray to?
But then he whined off on a three minute diatribe about how WESTERN governments should allow them into their borders, and give them cash, and food and everything else, because it was the fault of the WEST that the Islamic State cowboys had come so far and so fast, and how unfair it all was.
Sorry, mate, but you are first and foremost Arabs as well as being Christian, and ISIS is surrounded by extremely large tracts of space which are ARABIC, and surely it is your own brothers who should welcome you into their homes, and give you lots of cash, and food, because the last three times the WEST has tried to alter things in Muslim Arabic countries, namely Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, it didn’t turn out so well, so why should the West give you, Christian Arabs; sanctuary from Muslim Arabs?
Imagine you are a very successful ‘Pop Singer’ and you have sourced your songs, your material from not only your own mind, but from friends and from other writers and singers.
You are content that you have done everything by the ‘book’ when making your records, and your fans have responded by making you very wealthy.
Then; Disaster. Your records are ‘soiled‘ by association with a paedophile pervert named Rolf Harris.
And then you get this:-
One fan tweeted: “I feel they (the songs) have now been soiled, and I would like the chance to listen to these tracks without the input of Rolf Harris. “Maybe Kate will do this in future, she has been an avid supporter of childrens’ charities here in the UK (NSPCC springs to mind) so she may want to do this.”
Another added: “Rolf Harris made a significant contribution to The Painter’s Link and every time that track officially down loaded, Kate (via her companies) profits from it. That has to a very unwelcome association for Kate. Although she clearly wasn’t aware of Rolf’s criminal activity at the time the recording was made, she must be well aware of it now.”
Knowing very little about modern music, but a great deal about ‘pressure politics’, I ask the question: Should she change? Hell; No!
This is the inevitable consequence of dismantling the institution of marriage.
The highest human rights court in Europe has told European LGBTs that they have no human right to same-sex marriage, in a case that also shows how complicated sexual and marital norms have become in this new transsexual world.
Now, follow the logic…
The case arose after a man in Finland, who was married with a child, decided he wanted to live as a woman. After a sex-change operation, he attempted to change his governmental “male identity number” to a female one. He was turned down because, according to law, he needed his wife’s consent to change their man-woman marriage to a “registered partnership”, which she had withheld.
The problem in short is that this married man and woman could no longer be considered married in Finland if he changed his sex to female because Finland does not allow same-sex marriage. The couple would be required to accept a “registered partnership”, something they objected to.
The couple sued and told the court that “a divorce would be against their religious convictions” and that a “registered partnership did not provide the same security as marriage” and that “their child would be placed in a different situation from children born within wedlock.”
A 70-year-old councillor who called herself ‘the nigger in the woodpile’ has been sent on an equality and diversity course.
Convent-educated Elizabeth Peters used the offensive term while speaking to a member of the public after a Stroud District Council meeting. The grandmother, who runs a bed and breakfast in Brimscombe, Gloucestershire, and organises the village fete, apologised but said the phrase was commonly used when she was young.
She said: ‘I’m 70 and grew up with this kind of thing. It was just something which slipped out. It was not directed at anyone except myself. ‘There were no foreigners around. I have already apologised to the two people who were upset. ‘I have also gone through with what the council wanted me to do – go on an equality and diversity course. ‘It will cost me £150 plus transport to London or Birmingham. It’s a really costly mistake.’
1. She was referring to HERSELF – no one else.
2. She was using a common expression for her generation.
3. She was cowed into accepting this suppression of expression by the language Nazis.
These savages deserve death, not the benefit of procedural problems.
The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned the death sentences of two brothers convicted of killing four friends who were robbed and forced to engage in sex acts before being shot to death and left in a snow-covered Wichita field.
The court also struck down three of the four capital murder convictions each against Jonathan and Reginald Carr, citing procedural problems at the brothers’ joint trial for its decisions. It upheld one capital murder conviction for each of them. Prosecutors said the brothers broke into a Wichita home in December 2000 and forced the five people there to have sex with each other and later to withdraw money from ATMs. Two women were raped repeatedly before all five were taken to a soccer field and shot while they were kneeling. Four of them — 29-year-old Aaron Sander, 27-year-old Brad Heyka, 26-year-old Jason Befort and 25-year-old Heather Muller — died.
The sheer EVIL of these thugs is beyond words. They are a blot on the earth. Put them under it.
