‘Zionist Entity’, ‘Enemy’, ‘Adversary’: Israel Becomes A Target In Egypt’s Presidential Vote

05/17/2012 1 comment

I’ve said it before, but I think in light of the following Reuters article today I’ll say it again. Isn’t it interesting how an Egyptian Presidential candidate now needs to speak in order to win the voting public’s support? As revealing as these words are as far as the candidates are concerned, it reveals even more about the current state of Egypt and the people now empowered to cast the ballot …

By Edmund Blair – “(Reuters) – Israel has become a punchbag for politicians vying for votes in Egypt’s presidential race, playing on popular antipathy in Egypt towards its neighbor, but the realities of office are likely to ensure a 33-year-old peace treaty is not jeopardized.

An ex-air force commander in the race boasts of bringing down Israeli aircraft in 1973, the last of Egypt’s four wars with Israel. One Islamist often refers to Israel as the ‘Zionist entity’, rather than by name, and describes it as an ‘enemy’.

A leftist candidate pledges to support the Palestinian resistance against Israel, where officials have watched Egypt’s political turmoil with increasing wariness after the downfall of Mubarak who oversaw a cold yet stable peace.

None of the candidates want to tear up the document signed in 1979 but they repeatedly warn in rallies and debates it should be reviewed. Many of them grumble at provisions in the U.S.-brokered deal they say are biased in Israel’s favor…

‘Of course Israel is an enemy. It occupied land, it threatened our security. It is an entity that has 200 nuclear warheads,’ Islamist Abdel Moneim Abol Fotouh said in a TV debate when asked about Israel, referring to a nuclear arsenal Israel is believed to possess but neither confirms nor denies having.

Seeking to trip up his opponent in the novel TV face-off in a nation that has never had an open leadership contest, Abol Fotouh pressed former Arab League chief Amr Moussa on whether he too classed Israel an enemy. Moussa chose the term ‘adversary.'” Read more.

Oh, how sweet of Mr. Moussa. According to this presidential candidate Israel is the “adversary”, which coincidentally just so happens to be the meaning of “Satan” …

Egypt: Increasing Number Of Egyptians Want To Ditch Peace Treaty With Israel, Model Its Government After Saudi Arabia – “As Egyptians prepare to vote for their first post-Mubarak president next week, the antipathy towards Israel espoused by the frontrunners aligns with the findings of a new survey, in which 61 percent of Egyptian respondents favor abandoning the Egypt-Israel peace treaty, up from 54 percent a year ago.” Read more.

Au Revoir: France’s Islamist Powder Keg And How Not To Deal With Jihadists — Are You Listening, America?

05/17/2012 1 comment

The lobotomy continues. Voted into office with the support of France’s 10% Muslim population, socialist Francois “le Dhimmi” Hollande has apparently decided to say “Merci” by bowing down to the god of Islam and banning all pork products from government offices. What’s next on the list? Unbanning the burqa seems like a good candidate …

"There's no link between Islam and Islamic terrorism."

“There’s no link between Islam and Islamic terrorism.”

By JOSEPH A. HARRISS, The American Spectator – “From the first intelligence surveillance to the final shootout, France’s clumsy handling of its spate of Islamic terrorism in March was a case study in how not to deal with a jihadist. With the largest Muslim community in Europe—nearly 10 percent of the population—and thousands of young Frenchmen going to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Yemen on the pretext of studying the Koran, it does not bode well for the country’s domestic tranquility. Neither does the fact that officials have long been in denial, minimizing the threat for fear of alarming the public and antagonizing an increasingly restive ethnic-Arab minority. Thus tranquillized, the French public shrugs and says pas de problème: a recent poll shows only 53 percent think the terrorist threat is dangerous, the lowest level of concern since 2001.

Mohamed Merah, the 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian descent who shot three French soldiers point blank in the South of France, then slaughtered a teacher, his two young sons, and an 8-year-old girl at a Jewish school in Toulouse, said loud and clear that he was acting for al Qaeda. His coolly professional assassinations, intended to ‘bring France to its knees’—President Nicolas Sarkozy compared them to the 9/11 attacks in the U.S.—bore the jihadist imprint right down to filming them and ensuring he died a martyr’s death seen on the world’s television screens. He signed his social network account ‘Mohamed Merah-Forsane Alizza,’ meaning ‘Knights of Pride,’ an outlawed France-based jihadist outfit.

"La la la la la ..."

“La la la la la …”

Yet the government energetically pooh-poohed the idea that France was seriously threatened by Islamic fundamentalists. ‘These crimes were the work of a fanatic and a monster,’ Nicolas Sarkozy insisted. ‘To look for an explanation…would be a moral fault.’ He instructed the French not to blame the attacks on ‘our Muslim compatriots [who] had nothing to do with the crazy motivation of a terrorist.’ Most of the obedient French media went along with the politically correct whitewash.

Despite his claims to the contrary, Merah was officially described as a loner with no assistance from any al Qaeda affiliate. Indeed, the favorite theory of the chattering class was that he must be a right-wing neo-Nazi. Or failing that, just your typical underprivileged, disaffected guy who had had a miserable childhood in the slums. The left-leaning Le Monde reported that he had ‘an angelic face, a fascinating beauty.’ His 15 arrests and doing time for everything from stoning buses to violent theft and fighting with rivals? Liberals outdid themselves to show he was Read more…

Indonesia: Mob Of Islamists Shouting Profanity And Threats Throw Stones, Human Waste At Christians During Church Service

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

By Camelia Pasandaran – “A mob of Islamic hard-liners threw stones and bags of urine at the HKBP Filadelphia congreagation of the Batak Christian Protestant Church in Bekasi, on the outskirts of Jakarta, at an Ascension Day service on Thursday. Police tried to stop the mob of some 300 people, but were also attacked, according to reports.

‘They assaulted the congregation members,’ Rev. Palti Panjaitan told the Jakarta Globe on Thursday. ‘Police tried to talk to them, but the mob passed through police and showered us with urine and dirty water. Others threw stones at us.’

The mob reportedly attacked the congregation as the service started, and also shouted profanity and threats.

‘Even after the service, which lasted one-and-a-half hours, the mob chased after us,’ Rev. Palti said. ‘Thank God the police escorted us to a safe area.’

HKBP Filadelphia submitted an application for a building permit in 2007, but church leaders say that despite meeting all the requirements, including the agreement of their neighbors, a permit was never issued.

On Dec. 31, 2009, the Bekasi district head issued a letter banning the members of the congregation from worshiping on the land, forcing the 560 members to hold services along the side of the road fronting the property.

In July 2011, the Supreme Court overruled the Bekasi administration’s decision, saying the church was eligible for a building permit. The court ordered Bekasi to issue one — but the district government ignored the ruling.

Members of the congregation say that Islamic hard-liners have been intimidating and threatening them at their services since January.” Source – The Jakarta Globe.

Breitbart News: Obama’s Literary Agent In 1991 Booklet Says Obama Was ‘Born In Kenya And Raised In Indonesia And Hawaii’

05/17/2012 5 comments

And Kenya was, according to his literary agents, the official birthplace of Barack Obama until it was conveniently changed in 2007. Now I’d really love to see all of those Occidental College Transcripts. Was this man officially born outside of the United States until he decided to run for President? …

By Joel B. Pollak – “Breitbart News has obtained a promotional booklet produced in 1991 by Barack Obama’s then-literary agency, Acton & Dystel, which touts Obama as ‘born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.’

The booklet, which was distributed to ‘business colleagues’ in the publishing industry, includes a brief biography of Obama among the biographies of eighty-nine other authors represented by Acton & Dystel.

It also promotes Obama’s anticipated first book, Journeys in Black and White–which Obama abandoned, later publishing Dreams from My Father instead.

Obama’s biography in the booklet is as follows (image and text below):

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii.  The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation.   He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.

The booklet, which is thirty-six pages long, is printed in blue ink (and, on the cover, silver/grey ink), using offset lithography. It purports to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of Acton & Dystel, which was founded in 1976.

Jay Acton no longer represents Obama. However, Jane Dystel still lists Obama as a client on her agency’s website.

According to the booklet itself, the text was edited by Miriam Goderich, who has since become Dystel’s partner at Dystel & Goderich, an agency founded in 1994. Breitbart News attempted to reach Goderich by telephone several times over several days. Her calls are screened by an automated service that requires callers to state their name and company, which we did. She never answered.

The design of the booklet was undertaken by Richard Bellsey, who has since closed his business. Bellsey, reached by telephone, could not recall the exact details of the booklet, but told Breitbart News that it ‘sounds like one of our jobs, like I did for [Acton & Dystel] twenty years ago or more.'” Read more.

Arizona official to Hawaii: Show birth verification – “A state official in Arizona has asked Hawaii for verification of the information on Barack Obama’s birth certificate, the document that Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s special investigative team has concluded may be a forgery. Members of the Surprise, Ariz., Tea Party, who petitioned Arpaio to investigate Obama’s eligibility, say they are awaiting word from the state secretary of state regarding whether Obama’s name will be on the 2012 presidential ballot in Arizona. Secretary of State Ken Bennett had promised to ask Hawaii officials for verification of Obama’s documentation, vowing that if answers are not forthcoming, Obama’s name will not be on the ballot.” Read more.

Japan Mass Evacuations Likely: Forty Million In ‘Extreme Danger’ Of Radiation Poisoning In Eastern Cities, West Coast 10x More Contaminated Than Mandatory Evacuation Zone In Belarus

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

“(NaturalNews) Japanese officials are currently engaging in talks with Russian diplomats about where tens of millions of Japanese refugees might relocate in the very-likely event that the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility’s Reactor 4 completely collapses. According to a recent report by, Japanese authorities have indicated that as many as 40 million Japanese people are in ‘extreme danger’ of radiation poisoning, and many eastern cities, including Tokyo, may have to be evacuated in the next few weeks or months to avoid extreme radiation poisoning.

As we continue to report, the situation at Fukushima is dire, to say the least. Reactor 4 is on the verge of complete collapse, which would send radioactive nuclear fuel from thousands of fuel rods directly into the atmosphere. These fuel rods, after all, are already exposed to the open air, but the full release of their fuel would cause not only a regional catastrophe, but also a global nuclear holocaust.

‘A report released in February by the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident stated that the storage pool of the plant’s No. 4 reactor has clearly been shown to be ‘the weakest link’ in the parallel, chain-reaction crises of the nuclear disaster,’ reported the Mainichi Daily News recently.

‘The worst-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but the disintegration of spent fuel rods from all the plant’s other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate.'” Read more.

West coast of Japan 10 times more contaminated than mandatory evacuation zone in Belarus – “Following up this article..1.4 μSv/h of alpha ray in Niigata 500,000Bq/kg of cesium was measured on the roof of Yamagata university, announced in Yamagata prefectural disaster committee on 5/30/2011. It was the dust accumulated around the drain on the roof of the university building. Yamagata prefecture is on the west coast of Japan, thought to be relatively less contaminated than east coast.(100km away from Fukushima plants). Though it was measured one year ago, evacuation order has not been given out. As a reference though this is not natural soil, comparing it with the contamination level in Belarus in the same way as this, it’s 10 times higher than the mandatory evacuation limit.” Source – Fukushima Diary.

Japanese MD: Contamination from Fukushima Daiichi now spreading all over world — There may be radiation damage in other countries (Video – Part 1 of 4) – “You might think radiation is a domestic issue, but actually, radiation contamination is now spreading all over the world. There is contamination of the ocean, and also of the atmosphere. This is an issue not only of Japan, but there may be radiation damage in other countries, caused by the Fukushima power plant accident.We should not stay silent to this situation.”

NASA: Earth Threatened By Thousands Of Potentially Hazardous Asteroids, Could Cause ‘Large Scale’ Damage If Any Collide With Earth

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

By Gaby Leslie, Yahoo News – “As many as 6,200 potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs) are orbiting close to Earth, a new survey by Nasa has revealed.

The PHAs are considered robust enough to survive the passage through Earth’s atmosphere. If they were to collide with Earth they could cause damage on a large scale, experts warn.

In the most detailed study of PHAs yet researchers used infrared scans from Nasa’s 16-inch WISE telescope to identify 4,700 asteroids – plus or minus 1500 – that come within five million miles of Earth’s orbit.

An image released by Nasa shows the distribution of the PHAs – with every orange dot representing an asteroid measuring 330 feet (100 metres) or more that is in orbit.

Only 20% to 30% of these objects have previously been charted.

Although there is no cause for immediate alarm, Nasa said the information could prepare us for future disasters.

Lindley Johnson, programme scientist for the Near-Earth Object Observation said: ‘The NEOWISE analysis shows us we’ve made a good start at finding those objects that truly represent an impact hazard to Earth.’

‘But we’ve many more to find, and it will take a concerted effort during the next couple of decades to find all of them that could do serious damage or be a mission destination in the future.'” Read more.

Mali: Malians Riot As Islamic Rebels Impose Sharia Law, Faces ‘Worst Crisis Since Independence In 1960’

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

Daniel 7:25a, “And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws …”

“Attempts by Malian insurgents to impose Sharia law in the north of the country have sparked protests against rebel control.

Witnesses say Ansar Dine – the Islamic sect that controls much of northern Mali, together with Tuareg separatists the MNLA and al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb – fired into the air injuring five people during protests in the northern city of Gao, including one by a stray bullet.

‘We received five wounded, including one by a bullet. They are all civilians,’ a source at the hospital in Gao told the South African Press Association.

The protests come amid reports that rebels were intensifying attempts to impose sharia law in northern Mali, smashing  TV sets claiming they were being used to play video games or watch content considered un-Islamic.

Ansar Dine blocked an aid convoy with tonnes of food and medical supplies for the northern city of Timbuktu on Tuesday, objecting to the presence of women in a reception committee set up for the aid…

Ansar Dine already stand accused of desecrating mausoleums dedicated to local saints in Timbuktu, prompting further fears for the 12th century Unesco world heritage site.

The convoy marked the first aid deployed to Timbuktu since a military coup on March 22 toppled the civilian government in the capital, Bamako, allowing rebels to seize control of urban centres in the vast desert north.

Protests against the rebels come as Amnesty International accused all armed groups in northern Mali of ‘running riot’ and committing human rights violations including arbitrary detention, extrajudicial executions and rape.

‘After two decades of relative stability and peace, Mali is now facing its worst crisis since independence in 1960,’ said Amnesty’s West Africa researcher Gaetan Mootoo…

Tens of thousands of people have fled the region, creating a humanitarian crisis in Mali and in neighbouring countries.”” Read more.

Kenya: Two Christian Pastors Burned To Death After Visiting Muslim Family

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

By ANTHONY KITIMO, Daily Nation – “The umbrella body of evangelical churches and a human rights organisation have condemned the lynching of two pastors at Jomvu in Mombasa early this week.

Federation of Evangelical and Indigenous Christian Churches of Kenya asked the police to pursue the case up to the end, with the culprits arrested and charged in court.

On Thursday, the federation’s national chairman, Mr Joseph Methu, said punishment of killers of the two clerics in a case of mistaken identity should be used as an example to those who spearhead crime.

‘Time has come for the government to enforce the law and bring to book those who participated in the act that saw innocent pastors on a preaching mission burnt to death,’ said Mr Methu…

As police continue with their investigations, there are conflicting reports by the church and Jitoni residents in Jomvu, where the two pastors were lynched.

The pastor in charge of Melchidizek Church, Mr Samuel Wainaina, said the owner of the home the clerics visited was converted into a Christian a few weeks.

His family, however, dismissed the conversion claim.

Ms Mapenzi Abdalla, one of the members of Mr Mutana Nyandu’s family, said they were all Muslims and no one had converted to Christianity as claimed by Pastor Wainaina.

Ms Abdalla said three people had visited their home and they even welcomed them before confrontation ensued after one of them took a bag containing paraphernalia used by the family to treat the sick.” Read more.

Nigeria: Church Of Christ President Warns Nigerian Leaders They May Be ‘Consumed’ By Radical Islamists If They Fail To Soon Curtail Terrorism

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”

By Isaac Shobayo, Chris Agbambu, Clement Idoko and Christian Okeke, Nigerian Tribune – “PRESIDENT of the Church of Christ in Nigeria (COCIN), Reverend (Dr) Soja Joseph Bewarang, has accused those in leadership positions of treating the Boko Haram insugence with kid gloves, warning that if the leaders fail to curtail the terrorists, they may end up being consumed by them.

Reverend Bewarang gave the warning while delivering his address at the opening of the General Church Council meeting of the church held at the COCIN headquarters in Jos, Plateau State.

According to him, the country’s leaders were more interested in using their privileged positions to better their lot and in the process neglected the common man and the need to tackle once and for all the act of terrorism that has bedevilled the society, particularly Christian communities in the northern part of the country.

He said if those in leadership position allowed the trend of insecurity to continue, the rampaging terrorists would not spare them and allow them to enjoy their accumulated wealth.

The COCIN president said the country was facing a Jihad, targeted at eliminating Christians and Christianity, adding that the act was becoming bolder by the day because of the well-planned denial and excuses of those who should curb the terrorists’ activities.

He, however, said despite the insecurity and frequent attacks, the church would march on because Jesus Christ is building His church and all gates of hell in any disguise will not prevail against it.

He said the church was equally concerned about the role of military personnel in handling security situations in Plateau State, adding that the situation had become so unpredictable that everybody lived in fear.

He said until those in leadership positions put their heads together, the leaders would soon be leaders of no people, adding that the church was more concerned that the attacks were coming at a time when people were expected to be cultivating and planting.” Read more.

Israeli Elite Locks Down As Iran Attack Decision Nears

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

By Michael Stott – “(Reuters) – A private door opens from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office in central Jerusalem directly into a long, modestly furnished, half-paneled room decorated with modern paintings by Israeli artists and a copy of Israel’s 1948 declaration of independence. It contains little more than a long wooden table, brown leather chairs and a single old-fashioned white projector screen.

This inner sanctum at the end of a corridor between Netanyahu’s private room and the office of his top military adviser, is where one of the decade’s most momentous military decisions could soon be taken: to launch an Israeli attack on Iran’s nuclear program.

Time for that decision is fast running out and the mood in Jerusalem is hardening.

Iran continues to enrich uranium in defiance of international pressure, saying it needs the fuel for its civilian nuclear program. The West is convinced that Tehran’s real objective is to build an atomic bomb – something which the Jewish state will never accept because its leaders consider a nuclear armed-Iran a threat to its very existence.

Adding to the international pressure, U.S. ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro said this week American military plans to strike Iran were ‘ready’ and the option was ‘fully available’.

The central role Iran plays in Netanyahu’s deliberations is reflected in the huge map of the Middle East hanging by the door of his office. Israel lies on one edge, with Iran taking pride of place in the centre.

Experts say that within a few months, much of Iran’s nuclear program will have been moved deep underground beneath the Fordow mountain, making a successful military strike much more difficult.” Read more.

Flashback: Former Ambassador John Bolton: Iran May Be Much Closer to a Nuclear Bomb Than the World Realizes – “A report that Iran is about a year away from having the capability to build a nuclear bomb may be too optimistic, contended John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. ‘I worry the publicly available information is giving only a very small picture and that Iran is actually even much further along,’ Bolton said today in a radio interview… Reacting to the one-year timeline, Bolton stated, ‘I think it can be even less than that.’” Read more.

Head Of International Institute Of Finance Says Greek Exit ‘Somewhere Between Catastrophic And Armageddon’

05/17/2012 Leave a comment

Reuters – “Charles Dallara, who as head of the International Institute of Finance (IIF) spent months in Athens negotiating the largest ever sovereign debt restructuring, also said he had seen evidence that more people were moving their cash out of Greece.

‘There has been a pick up of deposit flight from Greece,’ Mr Dallara told reporters, but added he thought this could be stabilised ‘once you get a new government in place, if that government reaffirms its intention to remain in the euro zone’.

He was speaking on a visit to Ireland, which followed Greece into an international bailout in 2010 but has been far more successful in boosting exports to keep the economy afloat while slashing government spending.

Policymakers have begun to speak openly of the risk that Greece, now in its fifth year of recession, might leave the euro. Mr Dallara said the costs of a Greek exit would be so severe that Europe has to find a palatable way of solving their woes.

‘I think that it (a Greek exit) is possible, but I wouldn’t call it inevitable and I wouldn’t even call it likely because the costs for Greece, for Europe and for the global economy are likely each in their own way to be immense,’ Mr Dallara said in a speech.” Read more.

Mysterious Illness Strikes Hundreds Of Flight Attendants, Causes Rashes And Hair Loss – Are ‘Toxic Uniforms’ Really To Blame Or Is It Fukushima?

05/17/2012 3 comments

“(NaturalNews) Hundreds of Alaska Airlines flight attendants have filed a formal complaint about uniforms they suspect might be causing their skin to rash and develop lesions, and their hair to fall out. But based on the timing of the symptoms and their relation to similar symptoms in local marine life and polar bear populations, it appears as though radiation from the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster may also be a potential culprit.

KING 5 News in Seattle, Wash., first broke the news about the ‘mystery illness’ that has reportedly affected at least 280 flight attendants thus far. According to accounts, those afflicted by the condition say they have developed persistently itchy skin, skin lesions, and hair loss, all of which they suspect may have to do with newer flight uniforms that allegedly contain tributyl phosphate, a toxic organophosphorus compound linked to skin problems (

But not everyone is convinced that the uniforms are to blame, including Alexander Higgins who recently connected the dots to discover a potential link to the Fukushima Daiichi disaster. After comparing the flight attendants’ symptoms to those reported on polar bears and marine life from the northwest U.S. throughout the past year, the timing and correlation of the two is highly suspect.

Back in April, reported that an alarming number of polar bears living in the Beaufort Sea, which is located just north of Alaska and Canada’s Yukon and Northwest Territories, were turning up with skin lesions and Alopecia, which is another name for hair loss. And before the polar bears, it was apparently ice seals and walruses living in the arctic that were suffering similar symptoms (

Upon these discoveries, it seemed as though scientists and biologists tried every which way to avoid tagging nuclear radiation as the cause, blaming viruses, bacteria, and other factors as potential causes. But all of these hypotheses have failed, under further scrutiny, to prove true, which leaves one major elephant in the room that is not being discussed: nuclear fallout from the Fukushima Daiichi disaster.” Read more.
