    'Severe blow': Al Qaeda suicide bomber takes out leadership of key ISIS brigadeHAIFA, Israel – A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels -- the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other. The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad "Abu Ali" al-Baridi,...

    Ahead of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Washington next week, the Obama administration privately and publicly has conceded that a lasting peace in the Mideast isn't possible before he leaves office in 2017. Administration officials said in a conference call on Thursday that Obama will likely press Netanyahu to sustain efforts that could someday allow Israel and the Palestinians to co-exist in a two-state situation. But such a situation is beyond hope to occur in the 14 months before Obama steps down as president in January 2017.

    Mahmoud Abbas is the longest serving President of "Palestine," having been elected to a four year term in 2005. Due to "internal Palestinian conflict," there have been no elections since then. Abbas has been praised by Pope Francis and Imam Obama as a true partner for peace between Israelis and Palestinians.According to The Catholic Herald, Pope Francis did not refer to Abbas as an "angel of peace" in May of this year; He merely said that he couldbe one. [A]ccording to La Stampa, after giving Abbas a medallion with the figure of the angel of peace, the Pope told him:...

    Tel Aviv (AFP) - Thousands of Israelis rallied Saturday for fresh Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, on the eve of the 20th anniversary of the killing of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. The demonstrators chanted "Jews and Arabs don't want to hate each other" and "Israel, Palestine, two states for two peoples" as they came together amid a new upswing in violence which makes prospects for peace in the decades-old conflict look deeply gloomy. They gathered at Tel Aviv's Rabin Square, the site where the Nobel peace laureate was gunned down by a rightwing Jewish extremist at the age of 73 on November...

    North Korea reportedly rejected the idea of resuming talks to abandon its nuclear program on Saturday, but said it would welcome negotiations for a peace treaty with Washington. North Koreas foreign ministry made the statement one day after President Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye said they were ready to open talks with Pyongyang on sanctions if they were serious about dissolving its nuclear program, according to Reuters. If the United States insists on taking a different path, the Korean peninsula will only see our unlimited nuclear deterrent being strengthened further, the North said in a statement. North and...

    The depressing outcome of the tantrum of political correctness in Israel after the still unsolved arson made headlines and lead to outcries from the left and some of their useful idiots on the right, is that Israelis will be further endangered in the fight against terrorism. The IDF has changed its open-fire instructions for warriors serving in Judea and Samaria, making it even more difficult for them to fire at terrorists. The new instructions determine that only in cases of real danger to life may the soldier fire at the terrorist's lower limbs. This is a radical change in the...

Islamic State released the message yesterday claiming it was from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, as the extremist group executed 26 civilians before reaching the gates of an ancient Syrian city amid fears they could destroy it. The audio message posted on militant websites features a voice that sounds like al-Baghdadi's exhorting all Muslims to take up arms and fight on behalf of the group's self-styled caliphate.

A final Israeli-Palestinian accord "seems distant now," Obama said from Camp David, reiterating the US position that an agreement recognizing two states for two peoples is "absolutely vital" for greater Middle East peace. "Since we're up here at Camp David, I think it's important to...

    Dennis Ross and David Makovsky in Israels Drive Toward Self-Destruction, argue that Netanyahu must offer up hope to Palestinians or face a revived de-legitimization movement. Theyre certainly right to point out that the delegitimation movement will grow, but they are wrong to suggest that the answer is for Israel to offer hope to the Palestinians. How facile is that? They argue that what Israel needs to do is begin capitulating even before the negotiations commence, let alone, conclude. They want Israel to give up its bargaining chips for nothing in return.

In doing so he is ignoring UNSC resolution 242 which grants Israel the right to secure and recognized borders and does not demand a full retreat to the 67 lines. He is also threatening to allow the UNSC to impose such borders on Israel thereby circumventing his oft stated insistence that all matters are to be negotiated between the parties.

    Christmas Peace (Finnish: joulurauha, Swedish: julfrid) is a tradition based on old Scandinavian legislation created by Birger Jarl in the 13th century, extending the tradition of the Truce of God. Offenders who committed crimes on religious holidays like Christmas were given harsher punishments. Today it is a tradition to recommend that people behave in a respectful and peaceful manner at Christmas.[1] The Declaration of Christmas Peace has remained in Finland where it is an essential part of the Christmas tradition.[2]

  • The Lord Inverts a Beloved Promise...Joel pt 12

    Proclaim ye this among the Gentiles; Prepare war, wake up the mighty men, let all the men of war draw near; let them come up: Beat your plowshares into swords and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong. Assemble yourselves, and come, all ye heathen, and gather yourselves together round about: thither cause thy mighty ones to come down, O Lord. Let the heathen be wakened, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat: for there will I sit to judge all the heathen round about. Put ye in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe:...

    Now the nation can truly begin a healing process. It is time for the people to begin to come together again. We do not hate minorities or illegals. We only want them to follow the rule of law. We do care about the well-being of people...just work hard and earn it like many of us have instead of expecting a handout. Being a minority or an illegal alien does NOT give you a right to run rough shod over everyone else. On the other hand, true discrimination and racism will not be tolerated either. We began as a nation of...

    War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength. Ministry of Truth has spoken, now go home, prepare for the next election. Don't worry, your votes will still be bought with more federal gifts from the treasury War is hellaciously beneficial to a struggling Presidency. And the hard left progressive political establishment in the United States knows how to wage a good war. Just take a look at their successes regarding domestic warfare. They have waged a war on drugs, and a war on poverty, and the poor are on the verge of surrender! As for using the military in...

    Second, it is time for the world especially Muslim communities to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of al Qaeda and ISIL. As if they knew he would say this today (did they?), an international group of Muslim scholars today issued a purported refutation of the Islamic States understanding of Islam. Unfortunately, it is yet another farrago of detours, deceptions, half-truths and outright falsehoods. Will Muslim communities ever really reject the ideology of al Qaeda and the Islamic State? They havent yet in any way that would make even one jihadist lay down his arms and become...

    Most aggressors take stupid risks only when they feel they won't be stopped. The world seems to be falling apart. Only lunatics from North Korea or Iran once mumbled about using nuclear weapons against their supposed enemies. Now Vladimir Putin, after gobbling up the Crimea, points to his nuclear arsenal and warns the West not to mess with Russia. The Middle East terrorist group the Islamic State keeps beheading its captives and threatening the West. Meanwhile Obama admits to the world that we dont have a strategy yet for dealing with such barbaric terrorists. Not long ago he compared them...
