Israel is stepping up arrests of Hamas members and other anti-Israel activists in the West Bank in order to preempt a possible Palestinian uprising, AFP reported Thursday.
Former New York Mayor Ed Koch has sent a letter to British Prime Minister David Cameron, asking him why his country chose to criticize Israel for approving in Judea and Samaria.
Koch pointed out in the letter that the Israeli presence in Judea and Samaria is essential to ensuring Israel's security, especially in the wake of recent comments by Hamas chief Khaled Mashaal.
Mashaal, who visited Gaza for the first time last month, said in a public speech that the terror group reserves the right to use "resistance" - the Arab term for terrorism - to "liberate Palestine".
"Israel and the Palestinian Authority have not agreed to final borders and the Gaza government has said - the speech of Khaled Meshal is set forth in my commentary - that it will never recognize the legitimacy of the state of Israel and will continue to pursue violence against that state including the kidnapping of its soldiers," Koch wrote Cameron.
"The official head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, has refused for the last two years to come to the peace table to negotiate without preconditions," he added.
"You ask Israel to cease building settlements on the West Bank, which are intended not only to house Israelis, but to provide a defense bulwark when the Islamist armies of the surrounding states, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria - Assad or his opponents - and Iraq, again try militarily to crush Israel," wrote Koch.
"Will Britain come to Israel's aid? I recall when in one of those wars, Britain declined to deliver to Israel tanks it had purchased from your country. Britain under Chamberlain participated in the Munich sellout of Czechoslovakia. What you and your European are doing now is repeating the sellout, this time of Israel. The Czech Republic, mindful of what happened to it, is the only European country to vote no to Palestinian statehood. When one of your predecessors told the world that he offered 'peace in our time,' he wrote himself into history as a disgrace. How will history on this issue recall you?
"Why would you expect Israel to cooperate in its intended lynching?"
Israel recently approved the construction of homes in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria and said it would promote construction in the area known as E1, which connects between Jerusalem and Maaleh Adumim.
The Home Front Command’s medical department – under the jurisdiction of the Health Ministry – has been tasked with preparing hospitals for all possibilities.
All 27 hospitals in Israel have undergone intensive chemical weapons incidents drills – including surprise exercises.
Russia will hold large-scale naval drills in the Mediterranean and Black Seas in late January with the involvement of warships from the Northern, Baltic, Black Sea and Pacific Fleets, the Russian Defense Ministry’s press office reported on Wednesday.
“The Russian Navy’s drills of this scope will be held for the first time over the past few decades and are designed to improve control, ensure and practice multiservice force interaction of the fleets in the far-off maritime zones,” the press office said.
The drills will be held in line with the Russian Armed Forces’ 2013 combat training plan and will aim to “practice the issues of establishing a multiservice grouping of forces (troops) outside Russia, planning its use and conducting joint actions as part of a united naval grouping based on a common plan,” the press office said.
With rules inforced by a self appointed commission, including a president whose name only few remember, EU breaks open our national borders and force us to live with millions of people with completely other values.
The aim is to wear down our national identity by making us feel less home in our own countries and thereby making the step towards an European superstate governed by a self chosen closed circle of political correct elite whose wettest dream is to force a sligthly modernised Soviet style model of society over the heads of houndreds of millions of "ignorant" citizens a simple formallity.
Luckily for the totalitarians, 90 percent of the tens of millions of Muslims that they invited here vote Socialist - because Socialists follow the sharia, have laxer immigration rules and offer more money to people who are too inbred; badly educated by their parents, culture and religion; criminal; supressed and/or lazy to work.
More than that: Muslims tend to know and care less about democracy and are thereby perfect citizens in the eyes of the totallitarians in Brussels.
What Alexander Hamilton says to traitors like Dianne Feinstein
From The Federalist Papers, No. 28, emphasis added:
If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, there is then no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than against those of the rulers of an individual state. In a single state, if the persons intrusted with supreme power become usurpers, the different parcels, subdivisions, or districts of which it consists, having no distinct government in each, can take no regular measures for defense. The citizens must rush tumultuously to arms, without concert, without system, without resource; except in their courage and despair.
Here are more quotes you need to read and understand if you hope to keep America free from traitors like Sen. Feinstein:
According to the Congressional Budget Office, as a result of this deal the U.S. national debt will be about $4 trillion higher a decade from now than it would have been if Congress had done nothing.
The deficit for fiscal year 2013 alone will be about $330 billion higher than it would have been if Congress had done nothing.
So this deal has made our debt problems even worse.
Right now, the U.S. has a debt to GDP ratio of about 103 percent. We are already well into the "danger zone", yet most Americans still don't seem very concerned about all of this debt.
Those of us leading the charge for truth find ourselves battling this eclectic mix of entrenched and trendy formidable opponents as they continue to tell us that everything is fine and getting better. They have entranced large portions of multiple generations like accomplished magicians performing their stage magic. The performers and cast know that they are taking part in an illusion so convincing and captivating that it replaces rational thinking with an alternate reality.
Meanwhile, political pundits of all stripes are comfortable using their face and talk time and print space with political theater to convince others that there is a viable solution to save our country through a particular political party or candidate. The , we are told, lies in the results of the next election or the next congressional vote, as if they are broadcasting the play-by-play action of a football game to a captive audience.
As true leaders, however, we are able to see well beyond the playing field and over the stadium walls. We are seeing everything outside of the stadium being razed and burned to the ground while everyone else is fixated by the action on the field. We must not only resist this futile fixation, but assist others in overcoming their political myopia and normalcy bias so we can discuss our to save ourselves, our families and our future.
We need to see through the magician’s fog as the media continues to report economic that originate from cooked books and have no basis in reality. The media continues to report the partisan struggle to reach a on the fiscal cliff while he reality is that our fate has already been decided, and the perception of partisan acrimony is akin to a professional wrestling match. The adult reality is that the “game” is rigged, and has been rigged for the last century.
The days of the U.S. dollar are numbered, and the collapse you will ultimately witness is by design. Once our currency is lost, so too is our sovereignty. Then, our freedom, as well as the freedom of our children and their children.
We must discuss what others won’t. We must expose the counterfeit banking system, the fraudulent debt and the corporate fascism. We must demand redress of those who have placed us in this position of slavery, and abandon allegiance to anything except God and our Constitution.
At the same time, our liberties remain under assault under the guise of security. The powers are laughing at us, and sadly, many among us don’t believe it, have fallen under the spell, or have accepted it as a “new normal.” The powers have that the average American will not only forfeit their Constitutional rights, but their own human dignity at the hands of the TSA. Many men have abandoned their role as protector of their own families and allowed, without objection, their own wives, daughters, mothers and sons to be sexually molested or exposed to radiation at airports.
Against the backdrop of such historical and shameful acquiescence, this tyrannical body of leaders, empowered and emboldened by our historical acquiescence, is now coming for our guns. It’s for the children, they will say. The same children they have aborted away or sold into perpetual bondage through a corrupt economic system.
The safety of the children permitted to survive and perpetually mortgaged, absent of any objection, will trump our Second Amendment rights and vastly curtail our First Amendment rights faster than banning a Big Gulp in New York City. Count on it.
