Breaking: Two 18-year old 'Palestinians' arrested for Fogel family massacre .I'm sure you'll all be shocked - just shocked - to hear that two 'Palestinians' have been arrested for the murders of five members of the Fogel family of Itamar.Headline: Two 18-year-old terrorists arrested. They admit to the murder of the Fogel Family in Itamar.Amjed Awad and Hakim Awad, relatives, re-enacted the murder and confessed during their interrogation.I wonder if some of those who implicated Thai workers in the attack will now retract.Why would two 18-year olds commit such brutal murders? Hint: The original Oslo accords were signed 18 years ago this coming September. These kids imbibed Jew hatred with their mother's milk and watched it on 'Palestinian' television long after they finished nursing. They represent a new generation of 'Palestinians' that hates Jews far more fiercely even than its elders. They have been raised on hatred.The two cousins - aged 'around 18' and 'nearly 19' - are charged with the murder. They are from the neighboring village of Awarta. Six other 'Palestinians' were arrested, including an uncle Salah who helped them to hide the murder weapons and guns stolen from Itamar, and to burn their clothes. The uncle gave the weapons to a 'Palestinian' from Ramallah, who was arrested on April 14. The weapons were found in his home. Seven of the eight 'Palestinians' arrested are related.The two reconstructed the murder. They jumped the fence into Itamar, broke into an empty house, and stole an M-16 rifle, bullets and a bulletproof vest. Then they broke into the Fogel house, where they murdered the 11-year old Yoav and 4-year old Elad. Then they went into the parents' room where they fought with and murdered the parents. They apparently shot Ruti Fogel with the rifle.Then they left the house, debated whether to return to look for weapons, returned, heard the baby crying and murdered her. They did not see the other children - they said they would have murdered them too had they seen them. They then stole an M-16 from the Fogel house as well.They are affiliated with the 'Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.'Their motivation was terror for the sake of terror. None of the terror organizations were apparently involved. All Israelis and Jews were their targets, and they came to murder - and for no other reason.It took a long time for the two murderers to confess.Hmmmm......To prevent a 'repeat' perhaps Impose a no man's land of 2 miles ,anyone crossing it will be shot on sight.Read the full story here.
- Rep. Scalise says Obama violates Constitution over 'czars'.(TheHill)Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.), the chief sponsor of the effort to defund administration-appointed advisers known as "czars," reacted angrily Saturday to a signing statement from Obama saying he plans to keep them. In a statement emailed to The Hill, Scalise accused Obama of acting like a “dictator.”"President Obama should know that it is the courts, not the executive branch, that has the authority to determine the constitutionality of laws passed by Congress, especially considering that he agreed to this provision and signed the law himself," Scalise said in an emailed statement."The President does not have the option of choosing which laws he will follow and which he will ignore,” he continued.Scalise said that Obama's backtracking on the czar issue will make future talks on spending and the budget more difficult.“The president knew that the czar amendment was part of the overall budget deal he agreed to, and if he cannot be trusted to keep his word on this, then how can he be trusted as we negotiate on larger issues like federal spending and the economy,” he said.“A bipartisan coalition in Congress agreed that President Obama was circumventing the constitution by appointing these czars without the scrutiny of Senate confirmation. The United States is not a kingdom run by a political dictator, and President Obama needs to quickly reverse course and abide by the law eliminating the czars that were part of the budget resolution agreed to by Speaker Boehner, Senator Reid, and President Obama himself,” Scalise continued.Scalise was the sponsor of HR 59, the Sunset All Czars act which had 53 cosponsors."It's not surprising that the White House, having bypassed Congress to empower these 'Czars' is objecting to eliminating them," Michael Steel, spokesman for Boehner said.The spending bill signed by Obama on Friday contained a provision defunding four administartion advisers knowns as the healthcare, auto, clmate change and urban affairs czars.Hmmmm........When you look at History one can only observe that all these 'Csars' were totalitarian and in the end it resulted in Revolution perhaps there's a warning there for Congress?Read the full story here.
- "Police state" brutality?TSA security looks at people who complain about ... TSA security.(CNN.)Don't like the way airport screeners are doing their job? You might not want to complain too much while standing in line.Arrogant complaining about airport security is one indicator Transportation Security Administration officers consider when looking for possible criminals and terrorists, CNN has learned exclusively. And, when combined with other behavioral indicators, it could result in a traveler facing additional scrutiny.CNN has obtained a list of roughly 70 "behavioral indicators" that TSA behavior detection officers use to identify potentially "high risk" passengers at the nation's airports.Many of the indicators, as characterized in open government reports, are behaviors and appearances that may be indicative of stress, fear or deception. None of them, as the TSA has long said, refer to or suggest race, religion or ethnicity.But one addresses passengers' attitudes towards security, and how they express those attitudes.It reads: "Very arrogant and expresses contempt against airport passenger procedures."TSA officials declined to comment on the list of indicators, but said that no single indicator, taken by itself, is ever used to identify travelers as potentially high-risk passengers. Travelers must exhibit several indicators before behavior detection officers steer them to more thorough screening.But a civil liberties organization said the list should not include behavior relating to the expression of opinions, even arrogant expressions of opinion."Expressing your contempt about airport procedures -- that's a First Amendment-protected right," said Michael German, a former FBI agent who now works as legal counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union. "We all have the right to express our views, and particularly in a situation where the government is demanding the ability to search you.""It's circular reasoning where, you know, I'm going to ask someone to surrender their rights; if they refuse, that's evidence that I need to take their rights away from them. And it's simply inappropriate," he said.The TSA says its security programs are informed by real-world situations and intelligence. Indeed, the immigration agent who refused to let the alleged "20th hijacker" into the United States in 2001 later testified that the man's arrogant behavior contributed to his suspicions.Hmmmm....."Arrogant Behaviour" does that count also in cases towards Congress?Read the full story here.
- Burqa ban: Erdogan condemns France.Council of Europe in Strasbourg, April 13, 2011/Vincent Kessler)Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused France of violating the freedom of religion on Wednesday after Paris began enforcing a law barring Muslim women from wearing full face veils in public. He told the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe that Turkey was the only Muslim country that had copied the French law on secularism, or separating church and state.“It’s quite ironic to see that secularism is today under debate in Europe and is undermining certain freedoms,” he said. “Today in France, there is no respect for individual religious freedom,” he said. The Strasbourg-based Council of Europe monitors human rights across the continent.Absolutely stunning for a country that considers that other religions threaten Turkey:
Although missionary work is legal in secular Turkey, the mistrust of missionaries has been expressed by state institutions. In 2001, a report prepared for Turkey’s National Security Council, which brings together generals, politicians and the president, said missionary activities constituted a threat to national unity as their ultimate aim was to “divide Turkey”.“Missionary activity, the prime threat to Turkey, has nothing to do with freedom of religion,” Namik Kemal Zeybek, leader of the Democrat Party, or DP, a small right-wing group, said in a speech last week, according to press reports. “These missionary activities, called ‘Evangelical’ and supported by US dollars, are a threat for the whole of humanity.”Hmmmm.....'Imam" Erdogan “The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers…” Read the full story here.
- Iran to launch ‘halal’ Internet: report.Iran has announced it would launch an Islamic Internet to counter the influence of the US dominated world wide web. “Iran will soon create an Internet that conforms to Islamic principles, to improve its communication and trade links with the world,” Ali Aqamohammadi, head of economic affairs with the Iranian presidency, told state news agency IRNA.Aqamohammadi said Iran’s new network will operate parallel to the world wide web and will replace it in Muslim countries in the region.“We can describe it as a genuinely ‘halal’ network aimed at Muslims on an ethical and moral level.”“The aim of this network is to increase Iran and the Farsi language’s presence in what has become the most important source of international communication,” Aqamohammadi said.Source .
