WHEN SHARANSKY WAS RELEASED FROM A SOVIET PRISON…THE US AND ISRAEL GAVE UP NOTHING TO HIS CAPTORS. …I AM HAPPY FOR SHALIT AND HIS FAMILY BUT THE NUMBER OF PRISONERS RELEASED IN THE DEAL INCLUDE:
Sbarro Female Terrorist Among Those Freed for Shalit
The dramatic news this evening that Israel and the Hamas have agreed a deal which will see the return to Israel of its kidnapped solider, Gilad Shalit, will be provoke the most bitterly mixed reactions amongst Israelis and all who care about peace and justice. If Shalit is indeed returned alive and well, it will of course be a matter for rejoicing that he is unharmed after his appalling five-year ordeal and that the terrible suffering of his family is now at an end.
But the price that Israel has reportedly agreed to pay for his release is itself a terrible one which will have untold consequences. It will apparently release 1000 Palestinian prisoners, including 400 serving long sentences for some of the worst terrorist atrocities in the country’s history.
For the IDF it is a moral imperative to bring home its fallen or captured soldiers. But the terrible thing is that by releasing 1000 terrorists back to Gaza and the West Bank, it makes it more likely that not just the Hamas but Hezbollah in Lebanon too will redouble their efforts to kidnap yet more Israeli soldiers in order to further this devilish barter.
Wall Street’s Gullible Occupiers
The protesters have been sold a bill of goods. Reckless government policies, not private greed, brought about the housing bubble and resulting financial crisis.
There is no mystery where the Occupy Wall Street movement came from: It is an offspring of the same false narrative about the causes of the financial crisis that exculpated the government and brought us the Dodd-Frank Act. According to this story, the financial crisis and ensuing deep recession was caused by a reckless private sector driven by greed and insufficiently regulated. It is no wonder that people who hear this tale repeated endlessly in the media turn on Wall Street to express their frustration with the current conditions in the economy.
http://www.hudson-ny.org/2492/eurozone-political-monster The euro crisis can only be solved, at least according to Wolfgang Münchau in Monday’s Financial Times, if the eurozone countries – the 17 member states of the European Union (EU) which use the euro as their currency – turn the eurozone into a fiscal union. If the eurozone does not transform itself into […]
IT SOUNDS COMPLICATED BUT IT’S REALLY NOT.
MUSLIM/ARAB WORLD TO ISRAEL: “WE HATE YOUR GUTS AND IF YOU DON’T COMMIT SUICIDE WE’LL KILL YOU STUPID INFIDEL ZIONIST PIG AND APE”
TZIPI LIVNI: IT’S JUST SILLY TALK….THEY DON’T MEAN IT.
EHUD BARACK: “WHAT DID WE DO TO DESERVE THIS?”
HILLARY CLINTON: “IT’S TIME FOR ISRAEL TO FACE REALITY AND STOP ACTING LIKE CRY BABIES AND RISK AMERICAN ALIENATION.”
BARACK OBAMA: “THIS UNDERSCORES THE NEED FOR AN INDEPENDENT PALESTINIAN STATE”
BIB NETANYAHU: “COME BACK TO THE NEGOTIATING TABLE…LET’S TALK …..”
A lonely, alienated and angry person is convicted of a crime and imprisoned. Although he is prone to violence, and feels he has been wronged by “the system” he is fearful of prison predators and generally a loner. He is befriended by another prisoner, a skillful radical Moslem who introduces him to the Koran and shows great empathy and offers protection and social interaction. He converts to Islam and meets a charismatic Moslem chaplain, who has been chosen for the job by an Imam with close ties to organizations known to enable and fund terrorism. First, he becomes a messenger whose visitors who are sympathetic to his hatred of authority become conduits of information from and to outside terror operations with calls and orders emanating from the chaplain’s quarters. Ultimately he is converted to the cause of terror and jihad. Thus, a prison terror cell is hatched.
This may sound like a proposal for a movie but it is very real and happens throughout American jails. All Americans interested in national security and terrorism must read Patrick T.Dunleavy’s mesmerizing book “The Fertile Soil of Jihad-Terrorism’s Prison Connection.”

Targetting Darwish Posted By Daniel Greenfield URL to article: http://frontpagemag.com/2011/10/11/targetting-darwish/ The recent conviction of the Irvine 11 was a reminder of how far the campus arms of the Muslim Brotherhood will go to silence dissenting speakers. For all their protestations during the trial, they don’t believe in free speech, what they believe in is a […]
