http://www.thereligionofpeace.com/ On a week in which two suicide bombers slaughtered over 54 Christian and Druze (above photo) and Sunni extremists massacred nearly 100 Shiites in Iraq, TROP recorded our 20,000th Islamic terror attack since 9/11. It happened to be the stabbing and dismemberment of a Jewish woman in her Iranian home by religious radicals intent […]



This latest triumph of political Islamist democracy has been brought to you by the letter O. So will the next one. And the one after that.

Egypt’s ruling party is paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women protesting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square against President Mohamed Morsi, activists said.

One protestor, Yasmine, told the newspaper how she had been in the square filming the demonstrations for a few hours when the crowd suddenly turned.

Before she knew what was happening, about 50 men had surrounded her and began grabbing her breasts. She said they ripped off her clothes, starting with her headscarf and for nearly an hour, indecently assaulted her with their hands.

A few men tried to help her but they were beaten away. Eventually some residents who had seen the attack from their windows came to her aid and an elderly couple pulled her into their home. She suffered internal injuries and was unable to walk for a week.

The attack, which began shortly before 6 a.m. local time, started when insurgents set off three suicide car […]


Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has never been a friend to Israel. Today, speaking at the 2012 Saban Forum on US-Israel Relations, a liberal organization, she railed against Israel for supposed insensitivity, lack of empathy, and lack of generosity with regard to the Palestinians – even as the Palestinians unilaterally violated all agreements with Israel and attempted to declare statehood, and within days of Hamas firing rockets on Israeli population centers and bombing a bus.

Here’s what she said:

“So, look, I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion. So, yes, there is more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds, and they want to figure out, within the bounds of security and a Jewish democratic state, what can be accomplished. ”

Israel has handed over broad swaths of territory to the “dispossessed” Palestinians (a huge percentage of whom are Egyptian, Syrian, and Jordanian, or the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of those who left Israel in 1948 and were purposefully not absorbed by the Arab world). Israel has legitimized terrorists like Yassar Arafat in a desperate attempt to broker peace. Israel has sacrificed its own security for twenty years attempting to come to some sort of solution. Israel has accepted the threat of rockets hitting its major cities. Israel has done the job of the anti-Semitic Palestinians by forcibly removing Jews from their homes in the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, making those territories Judenrein. There is no occupation of the Gaza Strip – and it is now the dominion of Hamas. Israel has propped up the Palestinian Authority with weapons and cash and supplies – only to see the Palestinian Authority continue to back terrorism and indoctrination of children in anti-Semitism.

Clinton’s language couldn’t be any more insulting. She endorses the cycle of violence nonsense that endangers the very existence of the Jewish State, and the only democratic and free state anywhere in the region.

What more is Israel supposed to “demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people”? Commit suicide? Voluntarily jump into the Mediterranean? Why doesn’t Clinton – or anyone in the Obama administration – ever call for more sympathy from the Arabs who continue to cram Palestinians into detention camps in Syria and Jordan more than sixty years after the establishment of the State of Israel?

She continued instead:

” And I think that, unfortunately, there are more and more Israelis and Palestinians who just reject that idea out of hand: Why bother? Why try? We’ll never be able to reach an agreement with the other. But in the last 20 years, I’ve seen Israeli leaders make an honest, good-faith effort and not be reciprocated in the way that was needed.”

But she added:

” I really believe this with all my heart: I think that even if you cannot reach a complete agreement that resolves all these incredibly hard issues, it is in Israel’s interest to be trying. It gives Israel a moral high ground that I want Israel to occupy. That’s what I want Israel to occupy — the moral high ground.”

“A Reflection Of The Ongoing Failure Of The Obama Administration To Take This Matter Seriously”: John Bolton on the UN vote


Interviewed on Fox News by Greta Van Susteren, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton maintains that the Obama administration could have prevented the vote that has resulted in Palestine’s admission to “non-member observer state” status with all that that potentially entails.

“Israel is making a big mistake in trying to downplay this [result]” he says, explaining that “This is not looking good for Israel,” that “Israel’s on the run,” and in a weaker position vis-à-vis Iran and its other regional enemies.

“Elderly” Israelis save eight lives. In the past week, eight patients received organs from people aged 70 to 80. Israel Transplant reported that since January, eight elderly Israelis, some of whom are over 75 and nearing 80, were the source of life-saving organs. With improved lifestyles and hi-tech scanners, fewer organs are rejected.
Water lily extract combats inflammation. (Thanks to NoCamels) Ben Gurion University researchers have discovered that the leaves and roots of the yellow water-lily (nuphar lutea) have an inhibitory effect on a protein that causes inflammation. This could lead to Inflammatory Bowel Disease medication and cancer prevention.
Another Israeli wonder treatment? During trials by Israel’s Can-Fite BioPharma of its anti-inflammatory CF101 medication, the company discovered that the active ingredient is suitable for treating impotence. Can-Fite only found this out when they saw that patients were not returning all the medication at the end of the trial.
US funds Israeli research into Juvenile Diabetes. The US Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) is funding five Israeli researchers up to $130,000 per year each for up to three years toward investigations into Type 1 diabetes (T1D), which affects an estimated three million individuals in the United States alone.
Revealing the cell replication process. Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers have isolated rare replicating cells from the livers of mice. This may eventually help develop treatments to increase the cells that produce insulin for diabetics and reduce cell proliferation in cancerous tumours.
The Pluristem story. (Thanks to NoCamels) Here again are the details of the stem cell transplants performed by Israeli doctors using PLX stem cells from Israeli biotech Pluristem. Two of the patients were cured completely and one survived for four months until she contracted an infection in her Romanian home.
Vecoy’s Decoy method to fight viruses. An excellent article explaining the unique technology that Israel’s Vecoy Nanomedic employs to trick viruses to self-destruct. Vecoy’s anti-viral system mimics human cells to entice the virus and then kill it. If the virus mutates, it can no longer infect humans.
