    The Israeli Navy is preparing for scenarios in which, using the “Yakhont” missiles, there will be an attempt to hit Israel’s oil rigs. Therefore it tries to convince the members of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that it should be equipped with small and more sophisticated boats rather than the veteran missile boats The Minister of Defense, Moshe Ya'alon, used his visit to the Munich Security Conference last weekend for advanced negotiations with seniors of the German security establishment, including the new Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen, for the acquisition of medium-sized destroyers (frigates), which will be used,...

    Arutz Sheva ^ | 10/12/13 | Ari Yashar
    Interior Minister Gideon Sa'ar (Likud) spoke to Arutz Sheva on Tuesday, saying that by opposing the recently passed law to prevent infiltration by illegal immigrants, the leftist factions in the Knesset have taken a "mistaken outlook" that endangers the future of Israel. The law was officially passed on Monday after a heated debate. It allows police to jail illegal migrants for up to 12 months in special detention facilities, after the previously existing law allowing 3 years of internment was overturned by the Supreme Court in September. Sa'ar expressed confidence that the law would stand up to any petitions in...

    The most striking proof that the Arab anti-Israel cause is a common meeting ground for both Nazis and Communists --and that the Arabs welcomed supporters of both ilks-- lies in the friendship of Carlos, the notorious master terrorist who served the PLO, with Fran*ois Genoud, an old Nazi, one of the leading Nazis in pre-War Switzerland, later a financier who provided funds for Habash's faction of the PLO. "Carlos" (his nom de guerre) was what is called a "red diaper baby." His fabulously rich father, a Venezuelan lawyer and owner of estates, gave "Carlos" the name Ilich, Lenin's patronymic, as...

    Townhall.com ^ | September 26, 2012 | Michelle Malkin
    On Friday, March 30, 2012, Hisham Y. Altalib visited the White House. According to visitor logs, Altalib was received by Joshua DuBois, the director of President Obama's Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. Four days later, White House officials welcomed a foreign delegation of the radical Sharia-enforcing Muslim Brotherhood from Egypt. The White House meeting with overseas Muslim Brotherhood leaders was reported in April by a few mainstream journalists and questioned loudly by conservative media. But the White House confab in March with U.S.-based Altalib -- which appears to be a prep session with the global Muslim Brotherhood's American...

    On September 25, the 23rd Arab-American Candidates Night Dinner was held in Virginia, attended by 46 Democrats and Republicans seeking office, with former governor and current Democratic Senate candidate, Tim Kaine, as a major speaker. The dinner honored a top Muslim Brotherhood official affiliated with Hamas named Jamal Barzinji, an inconvenient and overlooked fact for Kaines campaign team. Tim Kaine was the governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010 and then was the chairman of the Democratic National Committee. He was on the short-list to become President Obamas running mate. He is now running for Senate and will likely face...

    The 1,227t/ 1,350 ton Saar 5 Eilat Class corvettes were built by Northrop Grumman in the 1990s for about $260 million each. Its a decent performer in a number of roles, from air defense to anti-submarine work, to coastal patrol and special forces support but a master of none. The Israelis are looking for a next-generation vessel with better high-end capabilities, and the USA is their logical supplier. Given Israels size and cost requirements, however, the only American option was their Littoral Combat Ship. Israel pursued that option for several years, conducting studies and trying to get a better...

By Matthew Epstein In March 2002, Federal terrorism investigators descended upon a group of Saudi-backed executives operating out of northern Virginia. The government hauled away truckloads of files and computer hard drives from the "SAAR Network," a web of dozens of related companies with interlocking officers, directors, and corporate headquarters. The Treasury Department suspected the group was laundering money for al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Now over a year after the raids, many are asking whether the Justice Department will hand down indictments or clear the...

    Is the California Republican the victim of a sophisticated influence operation by Muslim extremists, or is he showing his true colors? Top Jewish Republicans who have supported Congressman Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) for decades said in interviews that they have serious concerns with the California Republicans ties to radical Muslim groups and their foreign backers, and his outspoken efforts to champion their cause in Congress. Before 9-11, Danas views seemed idiosyncratic, said Arnold Steinberg, a political consultant whose ties to Rohrabacher go back to Youth for Goldwater in 1964. We rationalized that he wasnt fully informed or had a blind spot...

That is more than any other politician received. Why was Moran so popular with this group? What is Moran doing that makes him so attractive to terrorists with money to give politicians?
