Actually: Change that. Khadr is probably not deluded at all. This vile, despicable cretin has steadfastly worked towards the destruction of Israel. He has received millions from the Arabs and he simply pays his dues…
An Urgent Message
From the Desk of David Horowitz
Dear DHFC Supporter,
I have just released a flash video, “Jimmy Carter’s War Against the Jews”, which is one of four such movies we have made.
This five minute video refutes the lies that Jimmy Carter has spread about the Jews and Israel in his books and speeches. It goes point by point, exposing the lies and showing Jimmy Carter’s duplicitous nature in regard to his defense of Arab tyranny while criticizing Israel democracy. It further exposes the truth in his taking funds from Arab sources, defending Palestinian terror at all
“I have never met an Arab leader that in private professed a desire for an independent Palestinian state. Publicly, they all espouse an independent Palestinian state â€” almost all of them â€” because that is what they committed themselves to do at Rabat (the 1974 Arab League summit conference).”
â€“President Jimmy Carter, at a 1979 press conference
“There has been no change whatsoever in the fundamental strategy of the PLO, which is based on the total liberation of Palestine and the destruction of the occupying country. … On no accounts will the Palestinians accept part of Palestine and call it the Palestinian state, while forfeiting the remaining areas which are called the State of Israel.”
â€“Rafiq Najshah, PLO representative in Saudi Arabia, Saudi Arabian News Agency, June 9, 1980
“The struggle with the Zionist enemy is not a struggle about Israel’s borders, but about Israel’s existence. We will never agree to anything less than the return of all our land and the establishment of the independent state.”
â€“Bassam Abu Sharif, a top Arafat aide and PLO spokesman, quoted by the Kuwait News Agency, May 31, 1986
Carter: Iran No Threat to Israel Now
ATLANTA (AP) — Former President Jimmy Carter said Wednesday that it was almost inconceivable that Iran would “commit suicide” by launching missiles at Israel.
Speaking at Emory University, Carter, who brokered the 1979 Camp David peace accord between Israel and Egypt, said Israel’s superior military power and distance from Iran likely are enough to discourage an actual attack.
“Iran is quite distant from Israel,” said Carter, 83. “I think it would be almost inconceivable that Iran would commit suicide by launching one or two missiles of any kind against the nation of Israel.”
Iran’s deputy air force commander said Wednesday that Israel is within range of Iran’s medium-range missiles and bombers and that Tehran would strike back if Israel “makes a silly mistake.”
The White House said the comments almost sound geared toward provoking a fight and Israeli officials said they take the threats seriously.
Carter did not dismiss the idea that Iran might want to attack Israel, noting Iran’s refusal to suspend uranium enrichment production despite two United Nations resolutions imposing sanctions on the country. Tehran insists its nuclear program is aimed at producing energy for civilian use but the U.S., its European allies and many others fear the program’s real aim is to produce nuclear weapons.
“Obviously, we all hope we can do whatever we can to keep Iran from becoming a nuclear power,” Carter said.
Carter said unease between Israel and Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank is a far greater threat to Israel’s security than Iran. He criticized the Bush administration for not doing enough to broker peace in the region.
Abraham Rabinovich, Jerusalem | September 21, 2007
OPPOSITION leader Benjamin Netanyahu confirmed yesterday that Israel had carried out an air attack against a site deep inside Syria two weeks ago, breaking a 14-day Israeli silence on the strike.
“I was party to this matter, I must say, from the first minute and I gave it my backing,” Mr Netanyahu, known in his country as Bibi, said in an interview on Israeli television. “It is still too early to discuss this subject.”
Mr Netanyahu’s remark, the first confirmation of the strike by an Israeli leader, was condemned by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s office, which has thus far declined to comment on Syrian reports of an attack.
Syria first reported an Israeli air incursion two weeks ago but offered few details.
According to reports, the attack was carried out against a site that Israeli intelligence believes is being equipped for nuclear development by North Korea.
The Israelis had reportedly tracked a ship bearing cargo from North Korea to a Syrian port and monitored the cargo’s transfer to the site, which was attacked a few days later, on September 6.
Neither the precise nature of the cargo nor the effect of the air attack has been revealed.
An American official said Israel had been monitoring the site, at al-Safir, for some time before the arrival of the North Korean shipment.
Jane’s Defence Weekly, a respected British journal, reported yesterday that an explosion in a Syrian military installation near Aleppo on July 26 killed 15 Syrian soldiers and dozens of Iranian weapons engineers.
According to Jane’s, a joint Syrian-Iranian project at the installation was under way to fit chemical warheads to short-range ballistic missiles.
Syria’s state news agency, SANA, said the blast was caused by high summer temperatures, which set off high-explosive materials at a weapons depot.
But Jane’s quoted Syrian defence sources as saying the explosion took place during a test to fit a Scud-C missile with a mustard-gas warhead.
“The blast dispersed chemical agents (including VX and Sarin nerve agents and mustard blister agents) across the storage facility and outside,” it reported.
Egyptian ambassador interrupts UN Watch speech on biased agenda
Geneva, Sept. 20, 2007 — Today the UN Human Rights Council launched a special agenda item singling out Israel for permanent indictment. The special debate criticizing Israel allowed the Palestinian representative to take the floor and accuse Israel of “atrocities”, Syria to charge Israel with “Judaising” the Golan, and the Islamic group to protested Israel’s entry of Syrian airspace. Cuba on behalf of the Non-Aligned Movement complained Israel was excavating around the Al-Aqsa mosque. Iran, Kuwait, Algeria, and Venezuela and others also joined in condemning the Jewish state.
When UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer spoke out in the council plenary against the biased agenda, Egyptian Ambassador Sameh Shoukry interrupted with objections. Israel and Syria then entered the fray, but finally UN Watch was allowed to finish. Watch video selections from the debate above, or see the text below.
Get the U.S. out of the U.N.!,” a sign near Gettysburg shouts. “The United Nations sabotages America’s security,” author Eric Shawn declared in his book The U.N. Exposed. Iranian spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham told reporters that the U.N. “must be relocated from the U.S.” And a few days after Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez’s rant before a U.N. audience, a New York Daily News editorial encouraged Chavez to “take the atrophied, self-abasing remains of a global idea 2,100 miles to Caracas!”
The idea of moving U.N. headquarters seems to resonate with manyâ€”those who believe that the U.S. is being manipulated by anti-American and anti-Israeli elements within the U.N., as well as those who feel that the U.S. is doing the manipulation. For Americans, it would of course mean the loss of a global status symbolâ€”but it would also mean the reacquisition of valuable New York real estate, fewer cases of diplomatic immunity for the legal systems, and perhaps a reduction of anti-American sentiment worldwide.
Al Reuters says mean, nasty Israel turned down discussions with reasonable Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, who only wanted to “ease confrontation:” Hamas rebuffed in approach to Israel: source.
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – A prominent Hamas official tried to open discussions with Israel to ease confrontation in the Gaza Strip but was rebuffed, a Palestinian official familiar with the situation told Reuters on Friday.
Public broadcaster Israel Radio said Israel rejected an approach from Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, through a “mediator,” to a senior Israeli defense official before the Israeli security cabinet declared Gaza an “enemy entity” on Wednesday.
The Palestinian source told Reuters that Hamas, which seized control of Gaza in June, had sought talks with Deputy defense Minister Matan Vilnai, offering to rein in rocket fire into Israel in return for an easing of Israeli border controls.
* In other words, they were practicing extortion. But Al Reuters sees nothing wrong with that. nothing at all…
