    BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) – A Kuwaiti newspaper reported Saturday that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014. Al-Jarida newspaper quoted "well-placed" sources as saying that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had taken a decision to carry out airstrikes against Iran's nuclear program after consultations with his minister of defense Moshe Yaalon and foreign minister Avigdor Liberman in the presence of top security commanders. The decision came, according to al-Jarida, after Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign...

    France on Monday signed an agreement with Egypt for the first foreign sale of its Rafale fighter jet, in a deal that will boost Cairo’s military as it tackles jihadists, AFP reported. Paris hopes the 5.2 billion euro ($5.9 billion) deal for 24 Rafale fighters to be delivered later this year will prompt others to snap up its latest combat jet. For Egypt, the agreement is a show of support for President Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, who overthrew his Islamist predecessor in 2013 and wants to break a U.S. monopoly over Egypt’s arms supplies. In October of 2013, three months after Islamist...

    When the wackiness of the final play was over and one forward pass and three laterals had come up nine yards short for the Titans, two words likely crossed every smart Jets fan’s mind: It figures. Rex Ryan and his players rejoiced over this December win during this lost season, while the legions of team followers cursed a meaningless moment that almost certainly cost the Jets a chance at drafting a franchise quarterback in the coming months.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, the man who traded for Tim Tebow, is now looking back on his career in New York. He's expressing some regrets, and guess who's right at the top? "Obviously we made a couple mistakes," Tannenbaum told CBS Sports Radio, "trading for Tim Tebow most notably." The Jets dealt a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver to get Tebow in March 2012, and then proceeded to use him in no discernibly logical fashion whatsoever.

    Nov 29 (Reuters) - The Czech Republic is close to selling up to 28 subsonic fighter jets to a private company in the United States after years of failed attempts to offload the surplus planes, the Defence Ministry said on Friday. The U.S. company, Draken International, has placed a binding bid to buy 14 L-159 planes with an option for 14 more for a total price of up to 516 million crowns ($25.7 million). The government should decide about the contract by the end of the year. It could be completed in January 2014, the defence ministry said. "The Czech...

    Since 1998, they have introduced a range or piston driven light aircraft that have proven popular with kit enthusiasts -- the two-place Sonex, Y-tail Waiex and the Onex single-seater. Now they've unveiled the jet-powered SubSonex. The "pre-prototype" SubSonex JSX-1 has been flying since August, 2011. It looks like its piston relatives, except that instead of a propeller, a surprisingly compact PBS TJ-100 turbojet engine is mounted on the top rear of the fuselage, directly in front of the distinctive Waiex Y tail. The TJ-100 puts out only 247 pounds of thrust, but that's enough to propel this tiny 400 lb...

At this point it's crystal clear that the Tebow takeover that everyone assumed would happen when the Jets traded for him just isn't going to happen. If there was ever a time to turn to Tebow, it was this week. The Jets were desperate — 3-6 after two-straight 20-point losses. And Mark Sanchez was in a certifiable tailspin, sitting in the bottom five in the league in passer rating and completion...

And very naturally, Sparano decided not to expand on Ryan's explanation. ........................................................

There was a moment last week when it looked as if the trade shipping Tebow from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets might somehow fall through - that Tebow might end up a Jacksonville Jaguar instead, with a guaranteed starting job, a heavily evangelical fan base, and none of the insanity involved in eclipsing Jeremy Lin as the most famous Christian athlete in Babylon-upon-the-Hudson.

    The Jets made one of the most dramatic trades in franchise history Wednesday — twice. Gang Green swung a deal with the Broncos for polarizing quarterback Tim Tebow last night after the trade nearly fell through earlier in the day. The Jets sent their fourth- and fifth-round picks in next month’s draft to Denver in return for Tebow and the Broncos’ seventh-round pick. (Snip) Eventually the Jets and Broncos agreed to split the $5 million payment, according to ESPN. The deal got done just before 9 p.m., some eight hours after it originally was thought to be completed.

    After word spread rapidly Wednesday that the New York Jets had acquired quarterback Tim Tebow from Denver for draft picks, the teams have encountered a hang-up in the language in Tebow's contract that could nullify the trade, a Broncos source tells ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Tebow has about $5 million worth of recapture language in his contract, meaning the Jets would have to pay back some money to Denver, and the Jets might be unwilling to do that. The trade, then, is not finalized.

  • George W Bush coin toss at Jets-Cowboys game (vanity)

    So i'm at the game last night- starting my 31st consecutive season attending every Jets home game- and in the middle of the ceremonies they announce, "here for the coin flip, the 43rd POTUS, George" i jump out of my seat and begin yelling "yeh W!!! yeh W!!!" (sadly i must've looked like my 8YO daughter at a Justin Bieber concert)...I heard a large roar from most of the stadium- a few boos, though that's when he was talking to Romo...even later, in the 2nd half when they showed the clips, one of GWB walking to midfield there was applause...

    Aerospace industry tells Obama to cool it on bashing corporate jets By Keith Laing - 06/30/11 10:16 AM ET President Obama went over the top in his criticism of tax breaks for corporate jet owners, a lobbying group said Thursday. "We're disturbed by President Obama's remarks on business aviation," Aerospace Industries Association President Marion Blakey said in a statement. "General aviation plays an important role in our economy and took a substantial hit in the recent recession," she continued. "We feel that disparaging comments from the president regarding business jet users are not conducive to promoting jobs, investment and economic...
  • 2009 Stimulus Includes Tax Break to Promote Private Jet Sales [ Obama wants more corps to buy jets]

    FLASHBACK from 2009- WASHINGTON -- Just a few months after lawmakers scolded auto executives for flying to Washington in private jets, Congress approved a tax break in the stimulus package to help businesses buy their own planes. The incentive -- first used to help plane makers recover from the 2001 terror attacks -- sharply reduces the up front tax bill for companies who buy assets like business planes. The aviation industry, which is cutting jobs as it suffers from declining shipments and canceled orders, hopes the tax break in the economic-stimulus bill just signed by President Barack Obama will persuade...

    Buckle your seat belts low and tight, America, there’s going to be turbulence all the way to Election Day, 2012. It’s only the summer of 2011 and already we have kids vs. corporate jets, courtesy of the White House political machine. The most newsworthy bit of President Obama’s press conference certainly had nothing to do with economics or America’s precarious fiscal position. Recall: The president’s most recent budget plan would add $9.5 trillion in cumulative new debt over the next decade. Eliminating a tax break for the purchase of corporate jets – it’s called “accelerated depreciation” and Obama has endorsed...
  • Oh, Those Awful Corporate Jet Owners!

    Mention has been made about President Obama’s casting of corporate jet owners as villains in yesterday’s press conference. Clearly, he feels strongly about it, as he called them out specifically half a dozen times. This vilification is especially rich, coming as it does from the man who regularly rides what is likely considered to be the most expensive “corporate jet” in the world. And of course we shouldn’t forget that the “tax breaks” for those dastardly corporate jet owners came right from his own Stimulus plan which failed so spectacularly… But let’s take a look at the “corporate jet” part...
