Middle East – the “Democratic” uprising is really a CIVIL WAR between Sunni and Shiite

May 7, 2011

No only is the uprising in the ME NOT Democratic, it’s a sort of CIVIL WAR.

I say civil war, because if one looks at the entire area as PERSIA and Muslim, then the area and issue becomes VERY clear.

Iran is not the head.  There is no HEAD.  The HEAD is ISLAM.

The wars are over control of the region.  The issue is who will be the leader of the coming LARGER fight.  Who wins here is who will take the baton of ISLAM to carry it forward in to the NEW MILLENNIAL.

2011 is 1432 H in Islam.

In Report to U.N., Government Says Lebanese Militant Group Has Been Working to Overthrow Ruling Khalifa Family

Bahrain At Night

Bahrain has accused the Iranian-backed militia Hezbollah with seeking to overthrow the island-state’s ruling family, in a report to the United Nations, escalating the growing cold war between Sunni Arab states and Shiite-dominated Iran.

The confidential report, sent to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon last week, alleges that Hezbollah has been training Bahraini opposition figures at camps in Lebanon and Iran. Bahrain’s government also accuses Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah and other senior members of the Islamist Lebanese organization of directly plotting with Bahrain’s largely Shiite opposition on how to challenge the ruling Khalifa family.

Iran, Hezbollah and Bahrain’s opposition movement deny …

Hizballah to pull its heavy missiles from Syrian safekeeping
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report May 1, 2011, 9:30 PM (GMT+02:00)

Tags:  Bashar Assad   Hizballah   Israel   missiles   Syrian uprising

The Lebanese Shiite Hizballah has obviously decided the Assad regime is sinking.DEBKAfile’s military sources report the organization is preparing to pull its heavy, long-range weapons out of storage in Syrian military facilities – no longer sure they are safe there – and risk transporting them to Lebanon.

Last year, Syrian President Bashar Assad agreed to store Hizballah’s incoming Iran-made Fatah-110 surface missiles and its Syrian equivalent the M-600 and the mobile SA-8 (Gecko) anti-air battery which holds 18 warheads with a maximum range of 12 kilometers. Tehran paid for the upkeep of the Hizballah hardware on Syrian side of the border after Israel threatened to bomb these potential game-changers if they crossed over.

Deployed at Hizballah bases in Lebanon, the Fatah-110 and M-600 would place almost every corner of Israel within range of bombardment, while the SA-8 would seriously restrict Israeli Air Force operations over southern Lebanon and Galilee.
However, as the uprising against Assad rolls ever closer to Damascus, Hizballah see a very real threat of it infecting the Syrian army and has decided that now might be its last chance to get hold of the core arsenal it has standing by for war with Israel before events get out of hand in Syria.

Hizballah’s headquarters in Dahya, Beirut, became alarmed when they heard about strong resentment building up in the Syrian 11th Division over the Assad crackdown against the dissidents – among officers as well as other ranks.
The 11th Division, which is camped outside Aleppo, is the best trained and organized of all Syrian army units, equipped as its strategic reserve with the most advanced weaponry. If the unrest has reached this elite unit, Hizballah reckons there is no time to losing for pulling its missiles out of Syrian military safekeeping.

Meanwhile, top Hizballah and Iranian offices in Tehran are working on the best way to transport the missiles into Lebanon without exposing them to Israeli attack, DEBKAfile’s Iranian sources report. Some of them calculate that Israel would not venture to strike them while still on Syrian soil because it would lay itself open to interfering, or even getting in the way of, the revolt against President Assad and playing into his hands.

A security emergency might well take the wind out of protest movement’s sails.
But already, Tehran’s Lebanese surrogate is beginning to distance itself from Bashar Assad, its longtime strategic partner and arms supplier, having decided he has his back to the wall.  April 28, the Hizballah-controlled Lebanese Al Akhbar newspaper started criticizing the Assad regime on its op-ed pages.

Obama administrations LGBT initiative to redefine marriage and family by executive fiat.

May 7, 2011

By what authority does this government have to impose these barbaric regulations on this country?

Barbaric, correct.  This is barbaric.

The freeks don’t WANT to conform to society.  The rest of US have to conform to them?

How is this democratic?  When did the few and obnoxious get to MAKE the rules for the rest of us?  When was it decided that it was not the MAJORITY RULE but the MINORITY decree?

Why have we let these clowns destroy the family and morality?

This is not FREEDOM.  This is the immoral few setting the agenda for the many, because the majority have been told to sit down and – SHUT UP!

HOW is the below Constitutional?

For children to be taught this type of thing in school is against the perversion laws that are still on the books in many states and cities.

Kevin Jennings agenda is coming to the fro:

Seven year olds are shown graphic sex cartoon – as part of their education curriculum

This man is still working as the “SAFE SCHOOL” CZAR.

These CZAR things need to be abolished and these people arrested for child abuse.

—Here are some more that come to mind:

orthwestern U. – From the IVY league to the lowest depths of perversion -Sex show professor defends live demo for students
Skins – British, now American soft porn – another reason to get your kids an iPhone
Planned Parenthood – Launches new “initiative” to teach PARENTS how to PERVERT their kids. Margaret Sanger began PP as a Eugenics program.
Helena, Montana – Kindergarten SEX education is right out of the Kevin Jennings play book – Education CZAR, appointed by Obama, and who was the founder the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network.
Girls – as young as 7 years old are target markets for the sex industry. Parents complicit in the perversion of their own daughters
 

Sex Change You Can Believe In! Obama is the Most Pro-Transgender President Ever

Posted on May 5, 2011 by Ben Johnson

by Ben Johnson

Your Tax dollars at work: HUD’s new ad campaign promoting transgender rights.

Call it sex-change you can believe in. This author reported Tuesday that Barack Obama had held the first-ever White House transgender conference last Friday. The People’s House conducted this proud meeting in such complete secrecy that we know the identity of only one attendee, Mara Keisling of the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), a group lobbying for “a comprehensive civil rights bill that protects people from discrimination based on gender identity.” The measure, which would forbid private individuals from refusing to do business with or rent a home to a cross-dresser, is but one of many extremist policies that earned NCTE a meeting with White House brass. The U.S. Civil Rights Commission is now planning to “hold its first-ever hearing to specifically address the civil rights of LGBT people.” Despite these “firsts,” the Obama administration has already advanced transgender interest groups through a series of executive fiats. If you don’t believe me, believe The Huffington Post. It remarked that a recent housing proposal “marks the latest in a string of Obama administration attempts to enhance gay rights through federal regulation.” Some of the administration’s actions literally redefine the government’s definition of the family, stifle any opposition to gender confusion, and encourage schoolchildren to think of transgender practices as normal and mainstream (or else).

The First Transgender Appointee?

Last January, Obama named Amanda Simpson the Senior Technical Advisor to the Commerce Department. Simpson, who served as a test pilot and longtime employee of Raytheon before becoming a “woman,” sits on NCTE’s board of directors. The move was thought to be the first-ever transgender presidential appointment.

During his budget showdown with John Boehner, Obama (and Boehner) managed to see thatLGBT programs escaped deep budget cuts. Aside from these two matters, Obama has chosen to act through federal regulation, having government agencies write new rules without sullying his own hands. His administration has proven indefatigable in pursuing transgender concerns.

Thoughtcrime, Obama-Style

Last Thursday, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis (an Open Borders advocate) issued the department’s new harassment policy, which applies not only to the department but to all its “contractors at every level.” It bans any “unwelcome conduct, verbal or physical, based on race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), national origin, age, disability, genetic information, parental status, or sexual orientation.” This includes “making jokes or remarks that are offensive,” with “offensive” defined by the offended. Any infraction will result in “corrective and disciplinary action, up to and including removal, against all persons who have been found to have engaged in that conduct.” Upon hearing of this, theTransgender Law Center thanked Solis and Obama.

Solis has been on the frontlines of advancing LGBT interests. Last June, the Department of Labor redefined the terms “son and daughter” to include homosexual non-relatives.

Unfortunately, this is not the only way LGBT activists are coming after your sons and daughters.

Mainstreaming Cross-Dressers in Public Schools

NCTE has seconded “Safe Schools” Czar Kevin Jennings’ efforts to promote the LGBT agenda under the guise of fighting “bullying.” In March, Harper Jean Tobin, an attorney and expert on transsexuality who serves as NCTE policy counsel, attended the National Summit on Gender-Based Violence Among Youth, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education, Justice, and Health and Human Services (HHS). The NCTE told officials to force schools to:

Harper Jean noted that at the March summit on “bullying,” (s)he had a nice “inspiring” têteà-tête with Russlyn Ali and Tom Perez, who head up civil rights enforcement at the Departments of Justice and Education.

Perez, the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights, may have perjured himself before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission while testifying about the DoJ’s dismissal of the Black Panther voter intimidation case.

The LGBT activists and Obama administration officials know Americans differ sharply on the issues of homosexuality and cross-dressing, with traditional Christians rejecting both practicesin toto. They do not care. Their attitude seems to be, whatever parents believe, their children belong to The State eight hours a day and must adopt the Left’s amoral views during that time. Since children are especially impressionable and peer pressure is a defining factor for many children, The State is using the public schools to indoctrinate children into accepting lifestyles their parents find immoral.

Confirmation of Illegal Propaganda?

Tobin noted the “conference was used to announce the launch of no fewer than ten new anti-bullying campaigns and resources by participating organizations ranging from Facebook to the National PTA to StopBullying.gov, a federal website bringing together key resources, including resources on protecting LGBT youth.” This lends further confirmation that the Obama White House invites far-Left organizations to government events, then asks them to shill for its programs – a fact confirmed by left-wing activist Sally Kohn, who attended a series of outreach programs run by the White House’s Office of Public Engagement (OPE) headed by Valerie Jarrett. (Coincidentally, the NCTE’s blog has an entry shilling for ObamaCare, although the post has no specific content about transgender people.) Congressman Darrell Issa has demonstratedthis constitutes illegal covert propaganda.

Apparently, the propaganda runs both ways.

Federal Propaganda Campaign

The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) celebrated April, “fair housing month,” by launching a year-long, $41 million campaign to fight “discrimination.” Its “Live Free” ad campaign singles out transgender people as an especially victimized class. (The campaign also prints Spanish language posters encouraging “victims” to report housing discrimination against “persons of foreign descent.”)

HUD is, well, proud its subservience to LGBT concerns has caused transgender “gender discrimination” complaints to skyrocket by more than 1,500 percent in one year.

Redefining the Term “Family”

The housing department is similarly pleased with a new rule in the Federal Register that this author exposed in January, which would literally redefine the term “family” to include gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender couples.

HUD Assistant Secretary for Fair Housing John Trasviña recently revealed the rule is moving full-steam ahead. “HUD is finalizing a federal rule to ensure that HUD housing and programs are open to all, irrespective of marital status, gender identify, and sexual orientation,” he said.Metro Weekly, a D.C.-area LGBT publication, has noted how radical this stroke-of-the-pen is, reporting the proposed rule would “expand the reach of sexual orientation and gender identity protections without changing that law because, as [HUD Secretary Shaun] Donovan said in January, the ‘[Federal Housing Administration] represents one-third of all mortgages in this country.’”

The covers 4.4 million HUD-financed housing units that accept funds from such programs as section 8 housing, public housing, Federal Housing Administration (FHA) programs, Community Development Block Grants, and Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS (HOPWA). Ironically, Section 8 vouchers are often distributed through local churches, which will now be bound by this rule that violates its most sacred teachings about human sexuality.

Where it cannot pass or make laws, the Obama administration will simply pretend they exist. In July 2010, HUD announced it would enforce the Fair Housing Act as though it included sexual orientation and transgendered people – which it does not – arguing that discriminating against a man dressed as a woman could be construed as prejudice against women.

The Obama administration disregards the rule of law at will, now ignoring laws it wishes not to enforce (DOMA, voter intimidation against whites, illegal immigration laws), now drafting executive orders or regulations to make law from thin air, and sometimes twisting existing laws to apply to situations they clearly does not cover.

Rule by Executive Decree

Not surprisingly, transgender organizations are among those encouraging Obama to rule by executive orderThe Washington Blade reported sexual activists “have been pressing Obama to issue an executive order that would bar the federal government from contracting with companies that don’t have non-discrimination policies based on sexual orientation and gender identity for their workforce. Such a directive has been seen as an interim alternative while Republicans remain in control of the U.S. House to passing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, which would bar job bias against LGBT people.” This is precisely what Hilda Solis implemented, albeit through federal regulation rather than an executive order. The impact is the same: a revolutionary cultural policy most Americans viscerally reject foisted upon them by liberal government decree. This disregard for the will of the people, this use of force to impose immorality from above, is the essence of modern liberalism.

Big Government and Immorality are Life-Partners

Few people believed Barack Obama’s protests when he insisted he did not want to own a car company. In fact, big government liberals want to own, control, or subsidize as much of the country as possible. The more the nation is dependent upon government, the more the liberals who control government can enforce their will. HUD pays the rent on 4.4 million housing units; now, with the stroke of a pen, the owners must open their doors to those they may consider perverts and sexual deviates.

First, liberals expand the reach of government. Second, they broaden the ability of the president to pass laws independent of Congress. Finally, they use this power to overturn traditional values as far as lies within their power.

Americans must combat this by rejecting government funds and returning to self-reliance, reviving traditional morality, and reducing the size and scope of government. Only when government is deprived of such power and purview can those who find such practices abhorrent rest assured they will not be forced to approve of them in their workplace, their schools, or their homes.

Osama killed but Hezbollah increasing its power in Lebanon

May 2nd, 2011 7:04 am ET

By Jim Kouri
Law Enforcement Examiner

While millions of Americans are celebrating the killing of the world’s Number One terrorist, Osama bin Laden, the global war on terrorism is far from over. Intelligence reports coming out of Israel and Lebanon reveal some disturbing events taking place in Lebanon.

Since the Second Lebanon War in 2006,  Hezbollah has increased its power in munitions and number of operatives with tens of thousands of weapons stored in civilian villages throughout southern Lebanon, a direct violation of UN Resolution 1701, according to an Israeli Defense Force intelligence report.

According to the IDF Spokesperson, the Hezbollah terrorist organization is spread out between as many as 1,000 facilities in southern Lebanon, located in 270 civilian villages. The organization continues to acquire munitions and strengthen, funded by Syria which is also smuggling weapons to it. This includes weapons which can reach populations in the center of Israel in cities such as Tel Aviv.

According to IDF intelligence, since the end of the Second Lebanon War in 2006, Hezbollah has built more that 500 bunkers in the southern Lebanon region, each one holding various weapons. In addition, the organization has built about 300 underground facilities and 100 storage units for munitions including rockets, missiles and other weapons.

The terrorist group has made certain these terror centers filled with explosives and munitions are located near hospitals, private homes and schools.

“Apparently this is Hezbollah’s way of taking advantage of the civilian population of Lebanon. And the sad thing is the news media and United Nations know this situation exists but they don’t allow the truth to stop them from condemning Israel when it must ‘take out” one of these facilities and there’s collateral damage,” said former Marine intelligence officer and police executive Mike Snopes.

According to the IDF Northern Command, Hezbollah militants have doubled in number since the end of the last war.

Today, Hezbollah is estimated to have an arsenal of more than 40,000 rockets. This being the case, if war breaks out, Hezbollah will be able to launch between 500 and 600 rockets at Israel every day. One of the organization’s main civilian centers for storing munitions is the village of Al Khiyam in southern Lebanon, where hundreds of rockets and mortar shells with varying ranges are stored. More than 100 Hezbollah militants operate in the village, including special forces ready for combat with IDF soldiers.

Washington - The Israeli military presented evidence on Wednesday that it says shows Hezbollah fighters in southern Lebanon are preparing for a confrontation, Haaretz reported Wednesday.

Hezbollah is thus trying to distort the balance of power in Lebanon and return to full, routine militant activity in southeast Lebanon, similar to its activity levels just prior to the war in 2006. Hezbollah militant activities are based in southern Lebanon, funded and maintained by Syria and Iran. All of these are in direct violation to the UN Security Council’s 1701 decision.

OBAMA wants to PUSH for illegal alien amnesty – Hezbollah and Hamas agents can’t wait to be legalized.

Obama to push immigration reform in Texas; Rep. Lamar Smith says it’s ‘unlikely he will succeed anytime soon’

President Barack Obama will use the Texas-Mexico border as a backdrop next week for a speech on the need to pass sweeping immigration reform, officials said Friday.

Obama is traveling to El Paso where he will call on Congress to fix the nation’s broken immigration system and address the 11 million immigrants in this country illegally – including 1.6 million in Texas.

“I want to work with Republicans and Democrats to protect our borders, to enforce our laws and also to address the status of millions of undocumented workers,” Obama told Latino leaders at a “Cinco de Mayo” reception at the White House.

Immigration reform has stalled in Congress and Obama conceded that passing comprehensive legislation “is not going to be easy.”

“We’ve got to keep doing the hard work of changing minds and changing hearts and changing votes, one at a time,” said Obama, who will deliver his speech in El Paso on Tuesday before traveling to Austin for a fundraiser.

Republican leaders in the GOP-controlled House are opposed to measures that would grant citizenship or legal status to immigrants who entered the country illegally.

“The president wasn’t able to pass his version of immigration reform when he had large Democratic majorities in the House and Senate because of bipartisan opposition, so it’s unlikely he will succeed anytime soon,” said Rep. Lamar Smith, R-San Antonio, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.

The last sweeping immigration reform bill died in the Senate in 2007.

Republicans, like Texas Sen. John Cornyn said the president has failed to secure the border and failed to build consensus needed to pass reform legislation.

“What Sen. Cornyn is looking for President Obama cannot deliver with another speech or photo op, and that’s presidential leadership. Words matter little when there is no action,” said Kevin McLaughlin, a Cornyn spokesman.

But Obama’s trip to the Texas border to renew his commitment to immigration reform comes after three weeks of White House gatherings to get input from mayors, lawmakers and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

“I’m hoping the president can get more people thinking about it – the business community and Republicans – and convince them that the time is now. There should not be any political posturing,” said Rep. Charlie Gonzalez, D-San Antonio, Congressional Hispanic Caucus chairman.

Immigration advocates say the president has laid the groundwork for reform legislation, which would lead to more secure borders.

“We need to address the real threats of cash of drugs of guns that are smuggled and moved across our border that cause harm to our communities, not the imaginary threats of landscapers and nannies,” said Ali Noorani with the National Immigration Forum, a pro-immigration advocacy group.

Obama administration officials claim the U.S.-Mexico border is more secure than at any time in history, despite the raging war being waged by narcotics cartels just across the Rio Grande.

The Border Patrol has increased to 20,700 agents, more than double the number of agents in 2004, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Illegal immigration has dropped due to increased enforcement and the economy, Obama administration officials claim.

The number of illegal immigrants in the country is estimated at 11 million by the Pew Hispanic Center, using U.S. Census data. That is down from an estimated 12 million in 2007.

There are roughly 1.6 million illegal immigrants in Texas, about 6.5 percent of the state’s population. Some 1 million illegal immigrants are in the state’s workforce, according to the Pew Hispanic Center.

Border Patrol is intercepting between 70 percent and 90 percent of illegal crossers on the Southwest border, said William Moore with the Texas Border Coalition, which represents cities and countries along the Rio Grande from Brownsville to El Paso.

“The strategy that the administration is put into place between the ports of entry is working,” Moore said.

The Texas Border Coalition is asking Congress and the administration to shift resources to upgrade border land ports to better screen and confiscate contraband without hampering trade between the United States and Mexico.

“Those land ports of entry are the doorways through which nearly all of the drug cartels’ product enters the United States,” Moore said.

Mexico – Hezbollah and Hamas is partnered with drug cartels – ties to Lebanon – tunnels in San Diego

May 7, 2011

I have my suspicions about how the whole WTC thing happened.

Hezbollah has been in Mexico a long time and their signatures are beheadings and demolitions.
The tunnels were taught to the Pali’s by them.
Why has it been that our media and government has been laying low on this?
Well, thats up to conjecture, however, one thing is clear— they are united; the media and the government.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Undercover Agent Discusses Hezbollah in Mexico, posted with vodpod

If Al Qaeda is mainly shooters, how did they pull off an elaborate scheme such as the taking down of the WTC (the twin towers.)  How did the tower go down soooooo, vertically?

Lets, assume that it was Al Qaeda that did the whole job.  That is INCONSISTENT with what is going on.  Was Al Qaeda a much more elaborate and more trained organization back in 2001?  That job was not done by dumb shooters.  That took organization.  Especially if one considers that the towers were probably helped along by strategically placed detonators and explosives that many say they heard.  This would explain the vertical demise of the towers.  Without very experienced demolitions experts, the towers would have collapsed in the direction of the planes that flew in to them.  That is, if the planes were the only thing that caused them to go down.  Also, they said that it was a fluke that the planes caused the WTC towers to come down.  How does a FLUKE happen twice?  And in the same day?  Those towers came down PERFECTLY.

Watching the video and the blowing up of the Buenos Aires Building.  It has scary similarities.  Look at the smoke.

Terrorist Group Setting Up Operations Near Border

Hezbollah Considered To Be More Advanced Than Al-Qaida
POSTED: 4:53 pm PDT May 4, 2011
UPDATED: 6:27 pm PDT May 4, 2011

SAN DIEGO — A terrorist organization whose home base is in the Middle East has established another home base across the border in Mexico.

“They are recognized by many experts as the ‘A’ team of Muslim terrorist organizations,” a former U.S. intelligence agent told 10News.

The former agent, referring to Shi’a Muslim terrorist group Hezbollah, added, “They certainly have had successes in big-ticket bombings.”

Some of the group’s bombings include the U.S. embassy in Beirut and Israeli embassy in Argentina.

However, the group is now active much closer to San Diego.

“We are looking at 15 or 20 years that Hezbollah has been setting up shop in Mexico,” the agent told 10News.

Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, U.S. policy has focused on al-Qaida and its offshoots.

“They are more shooters than thinkers … it’s a lot of muscles, courage, desire but not a lot of training,” the agent said, referring to al-Qaida.

Hezbollah, he said, is far more advanced.

“Their operators are far more skilled … they are the equals of Russians, Chinese or Cubans,” he said. “I consider Hezbollah much more dangerous in that sense because of strategic thinking; they think more long-term.”

Hezbolah has operated in South America for decades and then Central America, along with their sometime rival, sometime ally Hamas.

Now, the group is blending into Shi’a Muslim communities in Mexico, including Tijuana. Other pockets along the U.S.-Mexico border region remain largely unidentified as U.S. intelligence agencies are focused on the drug trade.

“They have had clandestine training in how to live in foreign hostile territories,” the agent said.

The agent, who has spent years deep undercover in Mexico, said Hezbollah is partnering with drug organizations, but which ones is not clear at this time.

He told 10News the group receives cartel cash and protection in exchange for Hezbollah expertise.

“From money laundering to firearms training and explosives training,” the agent said.

For example, he tracked, along with Mexican intelligence, two Hezbollah operatives in safe houses in Tijuana and Durango

“I confirmed the participation of cartel members as well as other Hezbollah individuals living and operating out of there,” he said.

Tunnels the cartels have built that cross from Mexico into the U.S. have grown increasingly sophisticated. It is a learned skill, the agent said points to Hezbollah’s involvement.

“Where are the knowledgeable tunnel builders? Certainly in the Middle East,” he said.

Why have Americans not heard more about Hezbollah’s activities happening so close to the border?

“If they really wanted to start blowing stuff up, they could do it,” the agent said.

According to the agent, the organization sees the U.S. as their “cash cow,” with illegal drug and immigration operations. Many senior Hezbollah leaders are wealthy businessmen, the agent said.

“The money they are sending back to Lebanon is too important right now to jeopardize those operations,” he said.

The agent said the real concern is the group’s long-term goal of radicalizing Muslim communities.

“They’re focusing on developing … infiltrating communities within North America,” the agent told 10News.

Osama bin Laden – Blackout during the killing. Was the reason for the killing because Osama knew too much and was about to come out from hiding?

Why the secrecy?

Why the confusion?

The truth is not confusing.

So, what is the truth here?

Was Osama looking to come out of the “closet?”

Was the tenth anniversary of the TWIN TOWERS collapse going to bring a new revelation from the ME?  Was Osama going to deliver yet another blow?

Osama bin Laden dead: Blackout during raid on bin Laden compound

The head of the CIA admitted yesterday that there was no live video footage of the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound as further doubts emerged about the US version of events.

President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, along with with members of the national security team, receive an update on the mission against Osama bin Laden in the Situation Room of the White House

By Steven Swinford 10:25PM BST 04 May 2011

Leon Panetta, director of the CIA, revealed there was a 25 minute blackout during which the live feed from cameras mounted on the helmets of the US special forces was cut off.

A photograph released by the White House appeared to show the President and his aides in the situation room watching the action as it unfolded. In fact they had little knowledge of what was happening in the compound.

In an interview with PBS, Mr Panetta said: “Once those teams went into the compound I can tell you that there was a time period of almost 20 or 25 minutes where we really didn’t know just exactly what was going on. And there were some very tense moments as we were waiting for information.

“We had some observation of the approach there, but we did not have direct flow of information as to the actual conduct of the operation itself as they were going through the compound.”

Mr Panetta also told the network that the US Navy Seals made the final decision to kill bin Laden rather than the president.

He said: “The authority here was to kill bin Laden. And obviously, under the rules of engagement, if he had in fact thrown up his hands, surrendered and didn’t appear to be representing any kind of threat, then they were to capture him. But they had full authority to kill him.

“To be frank, I don’t think he had a lot of time to say anything. It was a firefight going up that compound. And by the time they got to the third floor and found bin Laden, I think it – this was all split-second action on the part of the Seals.”

The President only knew the mission was successful after the Navy Seals commander heard the word “Geronimo” on the radio, a code word from commandos reporting that they had killed bin Laden.

The absence of footage of the raid has led to conflicting reports about what happened in the compound. According to Pakistani authorities one of bin Laden’s daughter’s, who was present during the raid, claimed that her father was captured alive before he was killed.

There was also growing doubt about the US claims that Pakistan’s intelligence agencies involved in the raid.

Lieutenant General Asad Durrani, former head of the ISI, Pakistan’s intelligence service, said it was “inconceivable” that his government was unaware of the US raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound.

He claimed his country was forced to deny any knowledge of the raid to avoid a domestic backlash. The ISI’s official line has been that bin Laden’s compound had “slipped off our radar” after it raided the building in 2003 while hunting for another senior al-Qaeda operative.The agency claims it was unaware that bin Laden was hiding there.

Lieutenant General Durrani, however, said that the denial was a “political” maneuver by the intelligence services to avoid claims that they were working too closely with the US.

He said: “It is more likely that they did know [about the raid]. It is not conceivable that it was done without the involvement of Pakistani security forces at some stage. They were involved and they were told they were in position.

“The army chief was in his office, the cordons had been thrown around that particular place. The Pakistani helicopters were also in the air so that indicates that it was involved.

“[There are] political implications back home. If you say that you are involved there is a large, vocal faction of Pakistani society that will get very upset because we are carrying out repeatedly these operations with the Americans.”

Palestine – FATAH and HAMAS united

May 5, 2011

The implications are minimal to the US, but Israel is in the cross hairs.

Obama seems to love to do EVERYTHING to set it things up in the worst way for Israel.

FATAH and HAMAS are two very different type of organizations with both guns pointed at Israel.  And for what?

Everytime Israel gave them anything they destroyed it.  Israel gave up some very nicely developed areas, which had parks and schools and water aquifers

The hate is their enemy.  Israel and the Jews (real Jews) will survive.

Palestinians Celebrate Fatah-Hamas Reconciliation Ceremony In Cairo

Posted by John J. Xenakis May 5th 2011 at 11:01 am in

Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank and refugee camps celebrated on Wednesday. In Gaza’s Square of the Unknown Soldier, a demonstration turned into a raucous party of thousands cheering, chanting and waving flags, according to the Guardian.

The occasion was a ceremony in Cairo, attended by representatives from the U.N., the EU, and the Arab League, for the signing of a reconciliation agreement between Fatah and Hamas. The two factions have been bitter rivals since a 2007 war, when Hamas defeated Fatah for control of Gaza. Mahmoud Abbas, the president of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the governing body associated with Fatah, and Khaled Meshaal, leader of the Hamas, identified by the U.S. as a terrorist group, met for the first time in five years to sign the agreement.

The reconciliation agreement is an important step on the way to getting the United Nations General Assembly to unilaterally create a Palestinian state in September by international mandate. A reconciliation is an important prerequisite.

PA TV defines Palestine: Tel Aviv, Haifa, Negev, Galilee and all of Israel
Short film shown beginning with the words:
“Palestine – one day we will return to our home and bask in the warmth of our hopes”
[the line is from a song by Lebanese singer Fairouz, about longing for Palestine]

Afterwards there are scenes of various places, labeled with their names: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv – labeled ‘Tel Al-Rabi’a’, Haifa, the Dead Sea, the Negev, the Galilee, Caesarea, Masada – labeled ‘Jericho mountains’, and Acre.

At the end the following appears:
“For your sake, Palestine, the youth have been demonstrating for 25 days to end the [Fatah-Hamas] rift.”

Abbas said that they had forever turned “the black page of divisions.” Meshall spelled out Hamas’s goal:

“Our aim is to establish a free and completely sovereign Palestinian state on the West Bank and Gaza Strip, whose capital is Jerusalem, without any settlers and without giving up a single inch of land and without giving up on the right of return [of Palestinian refugees].”

In fact, several years ago, the Middle East Quartet (United Nations, Russian Federation, United States, European Union) set three conditions for Hamas: recognize the state of Israel; renounce violence; and honor past Israeli-Palestinian agreements. Hamas has said that it will not agree to any of these conditions.

Furthermore, Hamas officials have been openly criticial of the U.S. military action that led to Osama bin Laden’s death, according to the Jerusalem Post. On Monday, Hamas Gaza prime minister Ismail Haniyeh, said:

“We condemn the assassination and the killing of an Arab holy warrior. … We regard this, as a continuation of the American policy based on oppression and the shedding of Muslim and Arab blood.”

Thus, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu was extremely critical of the agreement:

“What happened today in Cairo is a tremendous blow to peace and a great victory for terrorism. I think the fate of the Middle East and the fate of peace hangs in the balance.”

Netanyahu made this statement while visiting British prime minister David Cameron. Cameron’s office had issued a statement critical of Netanyahu that said:

“This is a time to pursue not ignore the Middle East peace process. That will be his main message to Mr Netanyahu today. We need to study the detail of the agreement but, as the prime minister was making clear in the House of Commons yesterday, we hope that Palestinian unity between Fatah and Hamas will be a step forward.”

However, after the meeting, Cameron was more conciliatory:

“The leaders discussed today’s announcement on Palestinian unity. Prime Minister Cameron said that any new Palestinian government must reject violence, recognise Israel’s right to exist and engage in the peace process, and that Britain would judge it by its actions.”

It’s always interesting to watch politicians dance like this, waiting until they have a chance to conduct a public opinion poll, so they’ll know what to believe.

On the one hand, it almost seems that a Palestinian state in September has become an unstoppable train. On the other hand, there are many serious issues standing in the way.

Netanyahu: Fatah-Hamas unity a blow to peace process

By TOVAH LAZAROFF

“3 days ago, terrorism was dealt a resounding defeat with the elimination of bin Laden. Today, in Cairo, it had a victory,’ says PM.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu

LONDON – The signing of the Hamas-Fatah unity deal in Cairo is a setback for peace – and an advancement for terrorism – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu told reporters in London on Wednesday.

“What happened today in Cairo is a tremendous blow to peace and a great victory for terrorism,” he said. “Three days ago, terrorism was dealt a resounding defeat with the elimination of Osama bin Laden. Today, in Cairo, it had a victory.”

In signing this deal, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas had “embraced” an organization that had condemned the American operation against the al-Qaida leader and called him a “great martyr,” the prime minister said.

“When he embraces this organization, which is committed to Israel’s destruction and fires rockets on our cities, this is a tremendous setback for peace and a great advancement for terror,” Netanyahu said.

“What we hope will happen is that we find peace, and the only way we can make peace is with our neighbors who want peace. Those who want to eliminate us, those who practice terror, are not partners for peace.”

He spoke before a meeting set for late Wednesday night with British Prime MinisterDavid Cameron.

Israeli officials said Netanyahu hoped to persuade Cameron to promise that the UK would not support the deal unless Hamas accepted the three principles set out by the Quartet for international recognition of the Islamist movement: that Hamas recognizeIsrael, renounce terrorism and abide by the PLO’s agreements with Israel.

Hamas refused to do so.

On Thursday, Netanyahu is expected to make the same request when he meets with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

A spokesman for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Wednesday that Ban had always supported efforts for Palestinian unity, but wanted them to play out within the framework of the Quartet’s principles – and urged all Palestinian factions to adhere to them.

Still, he sent Robert Serry, the UN special coordinator for the Middle East peace process, to Cairo for Wednesday’s ceremony.

The European Union was even more cautious about supporting the Fatah-Hamasagreement and sent only a councilor from its embassy in Cairo.

The US did not have any formal representative at the ceremony.

Speaking on Channel 2 on Wednesday evening, Middle East Quartet envoy Tony Blair gave a plug for Palestinian unity, but only with certain conditions attached.

He said he was “in favor of Palestinian unity. It is essential for peace, but it must be unity on the right terms; it must be genuine unity.”

Blair added, however, that the contrasting Palestinian reactions to the killing by US forces of Osama bin Laden earlier this week “expresses what the issue is” regarding the worrying aspects of the Fatah-Hamas reconciliation agreement.

“[PA Prime Minister Salam] Fayyad said the death was good news and [Hamas Prime Minister Ismail] Haniyeh said he [bin Laden] was a ‘warrior.’” “If Hamas was changing… in peaceful means… this would be positive… but you just need to look at Haniyeh’s comments” to understand this has not been the case, Blair said.

As for Netanyahu’s comments that the agreement was “a victory for terror,” Blair said, “I think the reaction of the Israeli government is justified. For us in the international community, the door is open to come into this [peace] process – but only if conditions are made.”

He criticized Israel’s decision to stop transferring tax funds to the PA, now that Hamas is joining the PA government.

“In respect to the [tax] revenue made on behalf of the Palestinians, it should be given to them,” Blair said.

He also reiterated his objection to a unilateral Palestinian declaration of statehood.

“The only way you will get a Palestinian state is by negotiation,” Blair said.

But Netanyahu’s largest coalition partner, Israel Beiteinu, said on Wednesday that the time for negotiations had passed. It announced that in light of the agreement between Fatah and Hamas, it would demand that the government cease all contact between Israel and the PA. The party called to stop various inter-ministerial initiatives with the PA, as well as the transfer of money to its government.

“It is impossible to expect the State of Israel to transfer money to Hamas – and in doing so, to fund terrorism activities against Israel’s citizens,” Beiteinu said.

“Those who declared bin Laden to be a Muslim freedom fighter, as Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh did, and those who refuse to allow the Red Cross to visit Gilad Schalit cannot be partners in negotiations, either directly or indirectly.”

Separately, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon (Israel Beiteinu), who is in Eastern Europe, called on the European Union to threaten the Palestinians with financial consequences, should they fail to follow the Quartet’s principles.

“As the largest funders of the Palestinian Authority, you have a heavy responsibility to make it clear to the Palestinians that failure to comply with the Quartet’s conditions will be met with sanctions,” Ayalon said.

He spoke after meeting with Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet.
