Israel Deported Them. Then ISIS Cut Off Their Heads. – The Daily Beast

The rabid religious Right has been having a stroke of the execution of Ethiopian Christians by ISIS….but what they have overlooked was that Israel deported these same Christians that left them vulnerable to capture by ISIS……I will be fair…….at least one of the Christians had been deported from Israel…….

Where is the outrage directed at Israel?  But as usual Israel will get a free pass because of some moronic loyalty to a book……if Obama had deported them and they met the same fate…..what do you think the pea brains on the Right would be saying?

Butterflies Are Free

I remember a hippie-dippie movie with Goldie Hawn back in the “good old days”…..and this post has absolutely nothing to do with this post….

TECHNOLOGY…..My Friend…….as they say is the way of the future.  And drones is the technology leading the way into future warfare……..

This is a piece I found while surfing Middle East news sites…….I do not doubt that there are butterfly drones spying on people…..but is Israel capable of such techno stuff?

You decide.

Will India Emulate Israel?

There is always something happening in  the world of international relations that the media would like to ignore……

Bet that title is confusing to some, huh?

How could India possibly emulate Israel?  A good question and I am glad you asked.

The answer is simple……….Think settlements.

The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) argues that some 200,000 to 300,000 Hindus fled Kashmir during the armed revolt which began in 1989, and says they are building the settlements to encourage those Hindus to return.

Critics say the plan is effectively Israeli-style religious settlements with an eye toward bringing pro-government Hindus into a region with an active, predominantly Muslim, separatist movement.

Separatist leaders say the BJP’s move is aimed at further weakening the existing autonomy Kashmir has, and even the top Kashmiri Hindu organization accused the government of putting them at risk by singling them out into special, exclusive districts which would become a target for attack.

This is how you steal land and make it yours…..move in your supporters until there is no more room for the original inhabitants…….think West Bank settlements.

Back to those situations that the media chooses to ignore…….settlements.  The situation in the occupied West bank is getting out of hand and yet the MSM ignores the problem….and it will ignore India’s attempt to do what Israel is doing….stealing in the name of living space…….and if I am not mistaken there was a crazy little dude back in the 1930’s that used exact technique to gobble up territory.

Amusing how some things seldom change and justifications do not evolve.

Must Not Mistreat Israel

I try to stay away from these religious types that see Jesus returning for everything that happens and now that we have a black president he will make an appearance soon.  If you believe that then I have a bridge for sale.

I bring this up because everybody’s fave religious d/bag, Michelle Bachmann, is at it again……another one of those people that just cannot keep their ignorant mouth shut…….she has said that Obama’s bad attitude toward Israel will bring the second coming……

Bachmann explained that if Obama and the United States turn their back on Israel, this would bring  severe “curses” upon the United States, similar to those seen in the end of days.

“We need to be so on fire right now about the things of Christ and the things of God, that needs to occupy our time and our thoughts virtually from morning to night because we have very little time — in my opinion — left before the second return of Christ. That’s good news!” the former congresswoman said. “The world is embracing degeneracy, but what that also tells us as we look at what the world is doing that they’re going according to God’s time clock. Pastors, preach it from the pulpit!”

“If we actually turn our back on Israel as we have seen Barack Obama do today, if that happens then I think we will see a scale and a level of push back in the United States, negative consequences,” Bachmann told Understanding the Times radio host Jan Markell on Sunday. “I don’t know what they are, but I believe that the Bible is true. And believe what the Bible says is that our nation and the people of our nation will reap a whirlwind, and we could see economic disasters, natural disasters.”

YAWN!  She is so mindless…..would that be the same Israel that condemned him, Jesus, to death?  Would that be the same Israel that he attacked on all sides?

Speaking of the Jesus thing.

I struggle with the whole Jesus thing…….as a historian I cannot find evidence, other than the Bible, that such a person actually lived.

Call me a heathen but I like for historical facts confirm the stuff people try to convince has happened…….so read the below and weigh in……

5 reasons to suspect that Jesus never existed – Salon.com.

Before the inevitable religious tirade start let me say…..I am not saying Jesus did not exist only that there has been no evidence in the historic record……it is possible that some will surface….until then I still question…….

5 Reasons Israel Won’t Attack Iran | The National Interest

The big story of the day, in case you missed it, is the deal settled on by the US and Iran over nukes…….the big question that has crossed many minds is……what will Israel do?

“If this deal goes through then the very survival of Israel is at risk”.  Famous words of BiBi after hearing of the deal struck by the US and Iran…..but I would not expect any different.

BiBi has been warning of a Iranian nuke bomb since the 1990’s……and yet nothing.

Then there is the American war hawks that have been talking bomb Iran for a decade…..probably longer…. and yet nothing.

I have heard some say that now is the time for Israel to get serious about the destruction of the Iranian capability……to that piece of fecal matter I say……BULLSH*T!

Why?  There are reasons and below of just 5 of those reasons…….

If you disagree then speak up or forever hold your peace……

They’re Palestinians, not ‘Israeli Arabs’ – LA Times

During the latest Israeli election we heard many things……but the one that was repeated over and over is that the Israeli-Arabs could hold the key for the winner….

Israeli Arabs?  Call them what they are PALESTINIANS!.

I was guilty of using the term until I had time to think…..they are Arabs who are descended from the original residents of the region….that makes them PALESTINIANS!

Israel: US Greatest Ally

HA! HA!  If you believe that then I have a bridge I want to sell…..CHEAP!

I hear this rubbish every time I publish something about Israel……it is the trolls in them that cannot let anything derogatory about Israel go…..

The biggest lie is that Israel is a democracy…….an election does not make one a democracy…..then the second biggest lie is that Israel is our best ally……Israel spins a lot of time trying to undermine any policies that the US tries to follow if Israel is not the sole beneficiary…….

Take for instance the latest attempts to find a settlement of the Iranian nuke issue……Israel is taking every chance to undermine these negotiations……..even to the point of spying on the US……..Israel spied on the world powers’ nuclear talks with Iran and was using the obtained information to urge the US lawmakers’ opposition against a nuclear deal with Tehran, The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

That is the most recent attempts to undermine which goes as far back as the 1980’s in Lebanon…….now since BiBi has made it clear (as clear as anything in politics can be) that there will be NO 2 state solution…….the Us is thinking about ways to make BiBi pay for his insolence……The Hill offered up some suggestion on how to make Israel pay attention……….

1. Clog the arms pipeline. Even though Congress will appropriate more military aid for Israel in this year’s budget, there is a myriad of ways in which the Defense and State Departments can delay, if not completely suspend, the signing of contracts and the actual delivery of weapons.

2. Report on Israel’s violations of the Arms Export Control Act (AECA). Under the AECA, countries receiving U.S. military aid can only use weapons for legitimate self-defense and internal security. Israel killed more than 2,200 Palestinians — the vast majority of whom were civilians — last summer, oftentimes with U.S. weapons such as F-16 fighter jets and Hellfire missiles. The Obama administration should send a report to Congress documenting these human rights abuses and suspend future deliveries of specific weapons systems as outlined in the AECA.

3. Sanction Israel under the “Leahy Law.” Under the Leahy Law, specific units of militaries which commit human rights abuses are ineligible to receive U.S. training and weapons. In addition, individuals who commit human rights abuses are denied U.S. visas. While there is some evidence that high-ranking Israeli military officials have recently been denied U.S. visas, the State Department’s reporting on the implementation of Leahy Law sanctions is opaque. More extensive and public sanctioning of Israel under this law is warranted.

4. Declare Israeli settlements a national emergency. Under the National Emergencies Act, the president has broad and unilateral powers to declare an emergency in response to a foreign policy crisis. By designating Israeli settlements as an emergency, the Obama administration could regulate, or even prohibit, any transaction in foreign exchange that will directly or indirectly contribute to the expansion of Israeli settlements.

5. Shut down “charitable” funding of Israeli settlements. Dozens of organizations currently recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as 501(c)(3) nonprofits funnel tens of millions of dollars to Israeli settlements every year. There is nothing charitable about dispossessing Palestinians from their land. IRS guidelines do not allow for the funding of illegal activities, which Israeli settlements are according to U.S. policy and international law.

I agree with everyone of the proposals.  After more than six years of offering Israel more and more carrots only to be repeatedly snubbed, it is long overdue for the Obama administration to brandish the proverbial stick.

Time for the US to do the right thing…..but I am being naive…..of course we will do NOTHING to punish our greatest ally for it would cost votes and we know that that is more important than justice, right?

The media will do whatever is asked of them to prevent Israel from facing any punishment for their lies and actions……if you think the media is not part of this paradigm then ask any American to tell you something about Palestinians…….their answers will be……..hate Israel….terrorists……and that will be the total extent of their “knowledge”……because that is ALL they get from the media……and no one has asked why do they hate Israel?
