Googlenews, Chapter 3,488

And again, surfing at google news searching for "BBC Israel Nuclear", I've encountered a weird phenomenon, a weblink to an article, where the source nor date are mentioned:

Clicking on the link, one reaches a jihadist site named "jihadunspun". And here are some of the fascinating articles on the site: "We Kill Arab Children In Y's Name" (I'm unwilling to say the Y word, it's a jewish thing).
As well as an article titled "US Silent About Sweeping Zio-Nazi Arrests In Hebron", which contains the following quote:

Occupied Jerusalem - The Jewish-controlled American administration said Wednesday it wouldn't comment on the mass internment of hundreds of Palestinian men, women and children in Hebron Tuesday.

All of the following articles (and more) can be reached by searching googlenews for "jihadunspun jews" or "jihadunspun jewish", Googlenews clearly know th nature of the source, why else would they hide it's name on the search page?
Those are exactly the kind of things Nazimedia was kicked off Google for. Let's see if Google will do the correct step again.

Cease fire?

All the major media is writing mass headlines of "Hamas announces a cease-fire". Looking at the Hamas declaration it doesn't look like it. And I quote:

"A. Suspension of the military operations against the Zionist enemy for three months, effective today, in return for the following conditions:

"1. An immediate cessation of all forms of Zionist aggression against our Palestinian people including incursions, destruction, closures and sieges on cities, villages and refugee camps, including the siege imposed on President Yasser Arafat, house demolitions, leveling of agricultural land and assaults against land, property and Christian and Islamic holy sites, especially the holy Al Aqsa Mosque. In addition, the immediate cessation of all individual assassination operations, massacres, collective measures, all arrests and deportations against our people, leaders, cadres and fighters.

"2. The release of all prisoners and detainees, Palestinian and Arab, from occupation prisons without condition or restriction and the return to their homes first and foremost of those who have spent long periods and those with lengthy sentences, women, children, the sick and elderly.

"B. In the event that the enemy does not act according to these conditions and commitments, or violates any of them, we see ourselves unencumbered by this initiative and we hold the enemy responsible for the consequences."

In short, Hamas demands the release of all Palestinian prisoners: terrorists, theivs, rapists, convicted murderers, child mollestors, crooks, all of them, but more than that, they demand Israel to release not just the Palestinian prisoners, but the arab ones too. Which means that if you're an Israeli arab, who just beated his wife, according to Hamas, you should walk out of jail.
Hamas knows pretty well Israel isn't going to release prisoners it holds after a trial and fit procedures, the "ceasfire" is just another phony PR trick which is all too obvious.

Roadmap anyone?

This morning Israel awoke with the following news: at last, a ceasefire was achieved.
It was quite clear how phony that was, since Hamas already announce that the world "truce" isn't in their vocabulary, and now the bubble pops.

Palestinian militant groups Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad today denied reports that they had signed a three-month cease-fire agreement along with Yasser Arafat's Fatah faction.

Earlier today, The Associated Press reported that the three militant factions had signed an agreement to halt attacks on Israelis, as called for in the beleaguered U.S. "road map" to peace in the Middle East.

But ABCNEWS has confirmed from Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad that the groups have not accepted any cease-fire deal.

And speaking at a press briefing in Washington today, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer said he had no confirmation of the reports.

Did I mention already what great amounf of peace is this roadmap bringing us?

Evacuating territory

A few days after a 7 year old girl was killed by Palestinian terrorists, Israel began evacuating illegal outposts. While I can understand how evacuating people who took over land illegal is logical and correct (especialy after watching them beat up police and IDF troops who work all year round to defend the ungratefull bastards), I think the US, nor the EU must allow themselves to get carried into an ethnic cleansing attempt.
"Evacuating Settlers" is a whitewash. It's a codename for removing people of land they legaly bought, simply because they're part of a certain religion or ethnicity. It's called ethnic, cleansing, and if I'm not mistaken it was EXACTLY why US bombed Serbia for. The Israeli society has accepted a small arab minority among us, why can't the palestinian society accept even a smaller amount of jews among them? Is it really too much to ask?
Legitimizing the ethnic cleansing of jews simply because they're jews is an unusual step. And what's even more unusual, it's regarded as a consensus. "settlments must go", they say. And I say, why should they?
Last time they were removing people off their lands for being jewish the year was 1939 and it was called "judenrein".

Back Again

In case you're wondering why I'm having longer and longer breaks between posts it's because I have to train new workers to take my place as I leave to the military, which was postponed to August 10th, BTW.

Hamas' dictionary

Whenever the morons in the press try to blame Israel for breaking a positive effort to reach a cease fire, I'm happy stories like this are out there.

THE Islamist movement Hamas today rejected the possibility of a ceasefire with Israel after one of the bloodiest weeks in their 32-month-old conflict.

"Hamas is rejecting any call for ceasefire under occupation," senior Hamas leader Abdul Aziz al-Rantissi told AFP.

"The word ceasefire is not in our dictionary."

What about the word "dead", is that in your dictionary? How about "Brains splattered all over the sidewalk", I think you should add it to your lexicon, since that's the state all hamas leaders will be in, sooner or later.

Democrats criticize Bush

Usualy I don't get into the internal American debate of democrats versus republicans, mostly because (please don't stone me now) I see no actual difference between the two. Almost the same positions represented by different people. neither party can be described as anything other than centrist. Anyhow, the Democrats and their senators have criticized Bush over his comments regarding the targeted killing attempt of the slimeball Rantissi.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Thirty-four Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives, including the two senior Democrats, complained to President Bush on Friday about his criticism of an Israeli assassination attempt.
"We were deeply dismayed to hear your criticism of Israel for fighting acts of terror. The attack on Hamas leader Abdel Rantissi was clearly justified as an application of Israel's right to self-defense," they said in a letter.

Is Israel still a bi-lateral issue? I was kinda confident it's becoming a party issue, but now I think I was proven wrong.

If you're wondering

If you're wondering why I dont' have a witty cynical response to the war that is going on around here lately it's simply because I'm working too much. Day and night, and coming home at 2 AM I'm just too tired to post. Let's see if I can make up for the missed time now, though.

What's up with Bush?

What the hell is going on here. Hamas fires rockets into Israel daily, They've killed 5 soldiers two days ago, and tonight attempted to enter a jewish settlment to kill some jews, but "Israel's actions aren't contributing to peace" according to Bush.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush was "deeply troubled" by an Israeli assassination attempt on a leader of the militant group Hamas and he fears this could undermine Palestinian anti-terror efforts, a White House spokesman said on Tuesday.

Which "anti-terror efforts" are those exactly? You mean like Abu Mazen declaring he has no intention of using force to fight terrorism EVER?
Oh yes, I'm so sorry that Israel stopped Abu Mazen's efforts to HUG hamas into a cease fire. Really, I'm crying here.


Well, It was due to happen. After I wrote about it here almost three weeks ago, the British Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC) said that Halal and Kosher slaughtering must stop.

The Farm Animal Welfare Council (FAWC), which advises the government on how to avoid cruelty to livestock, says the way Kosher and Halal meat is produced causes severe suffering to animals.

Both the Jewish and Muslim religions demand that slaughter is carried out with a single cut to the throat, rather than the more widespread method of stunning with a bolt into the head before slaughter.

Kosher and Halal butchers deny their method of killing animals is cruel and have expressed anger over the recommendation.

"This is a major incision into the animal and to say that it doesn't suffer is quite ridiculous," said FAWC chairwoman, Dr Judy MacArthur Clark.

Hey Jude, in case you didn't learn some basci biology, youshould know that pain occurs when nerve signals to the BRAIN signal it. When all blood is cut to the brain, the brain stops living within 2-3 seconds, there is no way that the brain will "feel" the pain if it's DEAD. It's a major duh.
Let me again remind you. The first Nuremberg law Hitler made, was one forbidding kosher slaughtering of animals. Sieg heil FAWC!


Well, shortly after Israel finished burrying it's 5 victims from the bloody day that was Sunday, We've spared some time to pay a little visit to Mr. Rantisi's car. His game of playing "hide and seek" with IDF apache helicopters finished with a 1:0 score to the IDF. The bastard survived, he's badly injured though.
This response coems shortly after IDF killed 2 terrorists attempting to enter Netzarim.
I wonder what is a nastier shock. Wacking up in hell or discovering the 72 virgins are actualy 72 virgin mountain-goats.

Likud gathering

Sharon's speech today in the Likud party center was quite extraordinary. People were shouting "Go home" while others were chanting "Sharon, the king of Israel". But the point missed by the world media is that the Likud convention is unimportant. The likud convention is a rightist body in a party that owes atleast half of its mandates to center and center-right moderate policies. No matter how much Feiglin and his bunch of hooligans scream at the elected Prime minister, it still won't matter. And no matter how much Netanyahu will try to stab Sharon in the back, it won't matter to the Israeli public, who still knows, who was a better prime minister, Sharon.
Sharon has ENORMOUS popularity ratings. It moves around 70-80% of the public. And no amount of screaming in the Likud convention is going to stop Sharon from doing what most Israelis want. Achieving peace.

Roadmap Update

Five people were killed today in three separate attacks. It started this morning in the Erez passageway near the gaza strip, when three armed terrorists murdered 4 Israeli soldiers in an army post. The Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and get this: FATEH claimed resopnsibility for the attack. Abu Mazen's own group conducts attacks, what the hell can we expect from a guy who won't even stop his own group from acting?
More attacks occured as terrorists attempted to enter the tomb of the patriarchs in Hebron in an attempt to massacre jewish worshipers. Luckily the military stopped them from doing so. And they expect us to give them control over any holy site at all. Yeah, right.

Oh yeah, roadmap's working real good

Looks like peace is atlast within reach.

The radical Islamic movement Hamas has broken off its dialogue with Palestinian Prime Minister Abu Mazen, who is seeking to negotiate an end to anti-Israeli attacks.

"Abu Mazen does not represent us, and we refuse to meet with him because there is no point to it," Hamas leader Abdul Aziz al-Rantissi said in Gaza.

He says Abu Mazen made unacceptable commitments at a US-led summit with Israel in Aqaba, Jordan, on Wednesday.

Remind me, cease fire within the week? Attacks will stop in 20 days? Yeah, Right.
Hamas isn't something you negotiate with, it's something you kill and destroy. That's the only way of dealing with terrorist, just like it was the only way of dealing with Nazis. No negoatiations with terrorists, EVER.

Palestinian .gov sites

I saw this at LGF. It shows a horrible antisemic caricature published by a palestinian .gov site. This ain't nothing new. Please type this in your browser window: (won't link to it, I'm afraid they'll take it off the site if I do). I remind you, this is the palestinian .gov site. Is this their "roadmap"?
Here's another one. This is the Palestinian Industry ministry. Look at the nice logo at the top. Surprising? don't think so.
Let's move on in out tour of Palestinian .gov sites. How about the "Ministry of Parliamentary affairs" they have a lovely map right at the begining of their site. I could go on and on, but hey. Better check it out for yourself, a Palestinian .gov map:

Blair: We've found WMD's in Iraq

Following the discovery of mobil biological and chemical labs in Iraq, the WashPost published the following piece quoting Blair to say that soon the Coalition will uncover evidence of WMD's in Iraq.

ST PETERSBURG, Russia (Reuters) - Prime Minister Tony Blair insisted on Sunday that Britain and the United States would unearth evidence of Iraq's "weapons of mass destruction" and make it public before long.

In an interview with Britain's Sky Television at a Russia-European Union summit, Blair said he had already seen plenty of information that his critics had not, but would in due course.

"Over the coming weeks and months we will assemble this evidence and then we will give it to people," he said. "I have no doubt whatever that the evidence of Iraqi weapons of mass destruction will be there."

Is it just me or is Blair preparing a special surprize for Jaques chIRAQ?
