Military Analyst: ‘Iranian Regime Has Been Developing Bombs That Have the Capability of Hitting US Cities on the East Coast’

07/21/2011 1 comment

By Fern Sidman – “Elliott Chodoff, an American born political and military analyst and an IDF reserve major, spoke at the ‘Middle East Briefing’ session of the sixth CUFI national summit in Washington this week.

Citing Israeli military intelligence, Chodoff was quite forthright in his analysis of a possible attack by Iran. ‘Israel cannot survive a nuclear attack. You cannot trust a nuclear deterrent. Israel cannot wipe out Iran’s nuclear arsenal but the US can.’ Chodoff added that the Iranian regime has been developing bombs that have the capability of hitting US cities on the East coast.

He delivered an account of the history of radical Islamism, saying, ‘The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 and its leader imbibed the Nazi ideology that focused on the extermination of the Jews.’ Noting that Iranian cleric Ayatollah Khomeini of Iran who came to power during the Islamic revolution of 1979 was active in disseminating the Muslim Brotherhood ideology to school children, he said that it was Khomeini who was the first to label Americas as ‘the great Satan’ and referred to Christians as the enemies while declaring that America is run by Jews.” Read more.

Iran: Ahmadinejad Threatens to Send the United States and Israel ‘To The Morgue’ – “Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has threatened to destroy the United States and Israel if put on the defensive. ‘Resistance will continue until Iran sends its enemies to the morgue,’ he said on his website, making a reference to the US and Israel who he said are ‘on the verge of collapse and gasping for their last breathes.’” Read more.

North Korea and Iran increase collaboration on nuclear missile, report claims – “According to a study by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), North Korea’s weapons programmes are now benefiting from technology from Iran. Pyongyang also possesses technology that would enable Iran’s uranium enrichment programme to increase its output. However concrete evidence that North Korea has supplied the Iranians with its superior equipment has not been uncovered by IISS. The disclosure marks a disturbing escalation in the race for nuclear weapons technology by the two states which are seen to present the biggest threat to global security.” Read more.

‘The End of Man-Made Law, and the Start of Sharia Law’: Britain’s ‘Islamic Emirates Project’

07/21/2011 2 comments

By Soeren Kern – “A Muslim group in the United Kingdom has launched a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls ‘Londonistan’ – into independent Islamic states. The so-called Islamic Emirates would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic Sharia law and operate entirely outside British jurisprudence.

The Islamic Emirates Project, launched by the Muslims Against the Crusades group, names the British cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as Waltham Forest in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as territories to be targeted for blanket Sharia rule.

The project, which uses the motto ‘The end of man-made law, and the start of Sharia law,’ was launched exactly six years after Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 people and injured 800 others in London. A July 7, 2011 announcement posted on the Muslims Against the Crusades website, states:

‘In the last 50 years, the United Kingdom has transformed beyond recognition. What was once a predominantly Christian country has now been overwhelmed by a rising Muslim population, which seeks to preserve its Islamic identity, and protect itself from the satanic values of the tyrannical British government.

‘There are now over 2.8 million Muslims living in the United Kingdom – which is a staggering 5% of the population – but in truth, it is more than just numbers, indeed the entire infrastructure of Britain is changing; Mosques, Islamic Schools, Shari’ah Courts and Muslim owned businesses, have now become an integral part of the British landscape.” Read more.

Islamic Supremacism Trumps Christianity at Ground Zero

07/21/2011 Leave a comment

By Pamela Geller – “While New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg works in anxious haste to build the cultural obscenity that is the Ground Zero mosque, the iconic St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, which was built in 1916 and destroyed in the attack on the World Trade Center towers by Muslim terrorists, remains vanquished, unable to rebuild.

Bloomberg is lobbying for 9/11 taxpayer funds for the Islamic supremacist grifters behind the Ground Zero mosque, but St. Nicholas Church is in purgatory ten years after the worst day in modern American history.

Perhaps St. Nicholas Church should claim that it is a mosque — then Bloomberg and New York City Council Speaker Christine Quinn would probably pour the cement for its foundation. Remember: the New York Daily News reported last December that ‘Mayor Bloomberg’s top deputies went to great lengths to help those trying to build a mosque at Ground Zero — even drafting a letter to the community board for them.’

After a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, New York City officials released ‘a flurry of emails between its brass and Feisal Abdul Rauf, the imam pushing to build a mosque near the sensitive site, and his supporters.’ It was worse than we imagined. The release of these documents, emails, and various exchanges between Mayor Bloomberg’s office and the radical Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his motley crew of Islamic supremacists showed evidence of collusion, inappropriate political support for the Ground Zero mega-mosque, and favoritism given to the project.

Rauf is an open proponent of Islamic law, Sharia, with its oppression of women, stonings, and amputations. He is a prominent member of the Perdana organization, a leading funder of the jihad flotilla launched against Israel last year by the genocidal Islamic terror group, IHH. And he’s a slumlord and grifter: Rauf snagged more than $2 million in public financing to renovate low-income apartments. He took the money, never did the renovations, and forced good people to live with vermin and dilapidation.” Read more.

“HOTAN, Xinjiang – Police shot down 14 rioters who attacked a police station in Hotan city of Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Monday, a Communist Party official in Hotan said Wednesday.

The official, who declined to be named, said the attack left four people dead, including an armed police officer, a security guard, a woman and a teenage girl. At least three others were injured.

Rioters hacked security guard Memet Eli to death while they were trying to break into the Na’erbage police station shortly after 12 pm Monday, said Ablet Metniyaz, chief of the police station.

‘He is just 25. He planned to get married in September,’ said Abliz, an officer of the police station.

In addition to Eli, an armed police and two civilians died in the incident, according to Metniyaz, 38, who has been serving as chief of the police station for three years.

The rioters had taken six civilian people and some police staff hostage, and set fire and smashed things in the police station, leaving damaged computers, printers, furniture and clothes scattered around, Metniyaz said.

Shouting frantic religious slogans like ‘Allah the only God’, the rioters ran to the top floor and police opened fire to stop them, said an anonymous policeman with the police station.” Read more.

Australia: Record Numbers of Sea Animal Deaths Along the Coast Concern Experts

“EXPERTS on the Great Barrier Reef are calling for increased efforts to protect dugongs and green turtles.

The campaign by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority was launched yesterday as news emerged of another dead turtle found at Tannum Sands on the weekend.

GBRMPA is stepping up its efforts to promote smart boating and fishing practices to protect the animals, as record numbers of deaths are being recorded along the coast.

‘The evidence is pretty strong that it’s a loss of seagrass and loss of condition (that is the main factor in the deaths),’ GBRMPA chairman Dr Russell Reichelt said.

‘Essentially these animals are actually staving.’

Dr Reichelt said the extreme pressures being put on the species by low seagrass levels made it more important than ever for boaters and fishers to take extra care.” Read more.

Keeping Them Honest: CNN’s Anderson Cooper is a Fraud

07/21/2011 2 comments

By Joel Richardson – “A few months ago, after appearing on the Glenn Beck show, I was admittedly a bit amused to watch the fallout unfold as the left-wing media from George Soros’ Media Matters to MSNBC’s Fonzie-esque Rachel Maddow dedicated their efforts to attack me.

I’ve never had a shred of confidence in such leftist media outlets, but I have to admit I was still quite shocked at the shamelessness with which these so-called reporters purposefully lie to their audiences.

For most observers of the daily news cycle, this is all simply par for the course. But until you yourself have been personally attacked and lied about in the national media, it’s hard to truly grasp how outright evil some of these people really are.

As far as the attacks against myself, I’ve never felt the need to respond. But when CNN’s Anderson Cooper and Drew Griffin aired an outright hatchet-job against my friend, Walid Shoebat, I knew I had to speak up.

To keep it simple, there were three primary accusations leveled against Walid, and all were completely bogus.

First, Cooper and Griffin made great efforts to infer that Walid was not actually using his foundation’s monies to help rescue persecuted Christians, as he claims. Both reporters concluded their show by whining that neither Walid nor his manager would reveal exactly how their monies were spent for this cause. When asked about this, Walid rightly responded by saying, ‘It’s none of your business.’

I would have said the same thing. These ‘gotcha’ reporters have proven themselves to be entirely unworthy of compliance. Griffin specifically was exposed by Bill O’Reilly as blatantly lying about Sarah Palin. And so, as the proverb of Jesus says, ‘Do not cast your pearls to the swine.'” Read more.

CNN SMEAR CAMPAIGN—THE MISSING FACTS: What Anderson Cooper did not know – “Anderson Cooper on CNN interviewed his investigative reporter Andrew Griffin regarding the credibility of Walid Shoebat advising Homeland Security. But what Anderson Cooper did not know during this interview were THE FACTS:

LIE #1: In Mr. Griffin’s article he wrote: ‘Neither Shoebat nor his business partner provided any proof of Shoebat’s involvement in terrorism, despite repeated requests’.

FACT: There were no repeated requests. What is damaging to CNN’s credibility is that we have all the email exchanges to prove that every request was answered and The Shoebat Foundation did respond to all of CNN’s emails and was even offered several documents including credible witnesses to validate Mr. Shoebat’s account…” Read more.

US: Federal Government Planning for Potential Default, Canada Watches Closely

07/21/2011 2 comments

By Kristina Cooke and Tim Ahmann – “PHILADELPHIA — The U.S. Federal Reserve is actively preparing for the possibility that the United States could default as a deadline for raising the government’s US$14.3-trillion borrowing limit looms, a top Fed policymaker said on Wednesday.

Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank President Charles Plosser said the Fed has for the past few months been working closely with Treasury, ironing out what to do if the world’s biggest economy runs out of cash on August 2.

‘We are in contingency planning mode,’ Plosser told Reuters in an interview at the regional central bank’s headquarters in Philadelphia. ‘We are all engaged … It’s a very active process.’

Plosser said his ‘gut feeling’ was that President Barack Obama and Congress will come to an agreement to increase the Treasury’s borrowing authority in time to avert a default on government obligations.” Read more.

Carney warns U.S. default would have ‘profound implications’ – “The governor of the Bank of Canada, Mark Carney, says a U.S. government default on its debt would have “profound implications” for financial markets and that ‘it’s our view that’s not something that should be tested.’ Carney said Wednesday the bank does not expect the U.S. will default, but that there’s no certainty about what the effects would be if it did.” Read more.

Alaska: Alert Level Raised for Volcano in Aleutian Islands After Authorities Spot ‘Persistent Thermal Anomalies’

07/21/2011 Leave a comment

ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The alert level for an Alaska volcano is being raised after officials say persistent thermal anomalies have been spotted in satellite data.

The Alaska Volcano Observatory on Wednesday raised the level Cleveland Volcano to advisory from unassigned.

There is no real-time seismic network at the volcano, located 939 miles southwest of Anchorage on an uninhabited island. Officials are not able to track local earthquake activity related to volcanic unrest.

Short-lived explosions with ash clouds or plumes exceeding 20,000 feet above sea level are frequent on Cleveland. It last showed signs of unrest last summer, with a small ash emission and lava flows on its upper flanks.” Read more.

Florida: Hundreds of Eels, Crabs, Rays, Trout, Tortoises and Tropical Fish Washing Up Dead on Beaches

07/21/2011 Leave a comment

“U.S. authorities are investigating what could be killing hundreds of fish and other marine animals – including sharks and manatees – which in recent days have been washing up on beaches in southwestern Florida.

‘High temperatures and cloudy, rainy days can spell trouble for fish in Florida’s marine and freshwater habitats. These conditions can cause fish kills, which are natural occurrences that typically do not cause permanent damage to the ecosystem or to fish populations,’ the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said.

Even so, the FWC asked in a news release for cooperation from the public in monitoring the deaths of the marine life and determining if the phenomenon is spreading to natural lakes and estuaries in the area ‘to see if there are problems developing in an ecosystem that might require investigation or restorative measures.’

The bodies of the dead animals – which include eels, crabs, rays, trout, tortoises and various kinds of tropical fish – have been turning up in recent days on several Florida beaches, among them the one at Naples, which is considered to be among the most beautiful in the United States with 16 kilometers (10 miles) of sand and crystalline waters close to shore.” Read more.

Dead fish wash ashore in SW Florida – “NAPLES, Fla. (AP) — Authorities don’t know what’s causing fish to wash ashore along a stretch of beaches in southwest Florida. But Collier County pollution control monitor Rhonda Watkins says she sent water samples and samples of a variety of dead fish to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission labs in St. Petersburg on Monday. But many suspect a dead zone in the Gulf waters caused the fish to die.” Read more.

Gulf of Mexico ‘Dead Zone’ May Triple in Size, Could Become the ‘Largest Ever Recorded’ – “Researchers measuring the ‘dead zone’ in the Gulf of Mexico say it is currently about 3,300 square miles but some scientists say it could become much larger… Some researchers predict the dead zone could exceed 9,400 square miles this year, which would make it one of the largest ever recorded.” Read more.

Louisiana: Neighbourhood Lake in Prairieville Full of Dead Fish

07/21/2011 Leave a comment

By Kelsey Davis – “PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (WAFB) – Hot weather is causing trouble for a Prairieville neighborhood. However, it’s not just the heat causing trouble. People there are dealing with a lake, full of dead fish.

About 15 houses surround the lake in the Cypress Lake subdivision in Prairieville.

The residents like to fish and swim in the water, but a bunch of belly-up fish has put a stop to water fun for now.

Fish kills are pretty common in south Louisiana. Wildlife and Fisheries agents said high temperatures and shallow waters cause oxygen to evaporate from water, basically suffocating the fish.

The sight of a bunch of dead fish can be alarming though. One woman said she’s lived on the lake for 12 years, and hasn’t seen anything like this.” Read more.
