Israel’s Antimissile System Attracts Potential Buyers By THOM SHANKER and WILLIAM J. BROAD

But even ardent supporters of a continent-size missile shield […]

ALAN DERSHOWITZ: HUFF AND PUFF ABOUT THE UN BUT STILL PUSHES THE TWO STATE (DIS)SOLUTION

Legal implication of the United Nations Resolution on Palestine

by Alan M. Dershowitz

“All in all, the United Nations vote will make it harder to achieve a peaceful two state solution, acceptable to both sides.”

The General Assembly vote declaring that Palestine, within the pre-1967 borders, is a “state”, at least for some purposes, would have nasty legal implications if it were ever to be taken seriously by the international community. It would mean that Israel, which captured some Jordanian territory after Jordan attacked West Jerusalem in 1967, is illegally occupying the Western Wall (Judaism’s holiest site), the Jewish Quarter of old Jerusalem (where Jews have lived for thousands of years), the access road to the Hebrew University (which was established well before Israel even became a state) and other areas necessary to the security of its citizens. It would also mean that Security Council Resolution 242, whose purpose it was to allow Israel to hold onto some of the territories captured during its defensive 1967 war, would be overruled by a General Assembly vote—something the United Nations Charter explicitly forbids. It would be the first time in history that a nation was required to return all land lawfully captured in a defensive war.

If all the territory captured by Israel in its defensive war is being illegally occupied then it might be open to the newly recognized “Palestinian State” to try to bring a case before the International Criminal Court against Israeli political and military leaders who are involved in the occupation. This would mean that virtually every Israeli leader could be placed on trial. What this would entail realistically is that they could not travel to countries which might extradite them for trial in the Hague.

MY SAY: NOW WHAT?

If it were not so painful, it could be funny. Everyone is shocked, simply shocked that Abbas went ahead with his plan for recognition of a “Palestinian” state. I expect that any moment Alan Dershowitz and Ed Koch and assorted fools and grandees of the Jewish organizations will rear their self righteous indignation at the chutzpah of Abbas.

They supported the concept of a “two state (dis)solution”…..blind and deaf to the realities of geographical impossibility, the stated and repeated jihadist and genocidal goals of the so-called peace processors, the masquerade of Palarab “moderation”, and the deadly lessons of the Gaza withdrawal.

Anne Bayefsky got it just right when she said in a National Review Column: ”
“The Palestinian narrative is a fiction. It is deliberately crafted to mirror that of the Jewish people, beginning with the biggest lie of all — that the catastrophe of the creation of the state of Israel is equivalent to the Holocaust.”
And all those who bought into that fiction and endorsed it and promoted it had a large part in enabling the debacle for Israel in the United Nations.
And now what?

ANDREW McCARTHY:WITH RICE, BENGHAZI IS ONLY PART OF THE PROBLEM

http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2012/11/30/with-rice-benghazi-is-only-the-start-of-the-problem/?print=1

As we awaken to the spectacle of yesterday’s Palestinian coup in the General Assembly — symptomatic of a colossal failure of American leadership — it is worth underscoring the important op-ed authored by former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and Touro Institute’s Anne Bayefsky in Thursday’s Wall Street Journal.

The piece recounts Susan Rice’s unsavory record as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Ms. Rice, of course, has recently gained notoriety — infamy, really — for her appalling performance as megaphone for the Obama administration’s effort to mislead the country into believing that a protest over an obscure video about Islam’s prophet Mohammed somehow led to the September 11 Benghazi massacre of four Americans, including Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya.

In reality — as the administration well knew when Rice was dispatched to misinform Americans five days after the slaughter — there was no protest. The atrocity was a coordinated terrorist attack, a siege of seven-plus hours during which the commander-in-chief failed to deploy readily available military assets to protect Americans.

It was politically expedient to lie because Obama’s Libya policy created the conditions for a jihadist assault on our personnel. It was also expedient to lie because the attack, by al-Qaeda-connected terrorists, contradicted the Obama campaign theme that the president’s order to kill Osama bin Laden had decimated al-Qaeda.

The ambitious Amb. Rice agreed to do the campaign’s dirty work.

The incident in and of itself should be disqualifying for Rice’s quest to become secretary of State — imagine telling your boss right after the worst malfeasance of a checkered career that you deserved a big promotion. Judge Mukasey and Ms. Bayefsky, however, do the yeoman’s work of marshaling for us, and for the senators who could be asked to confirm Ms. Rice, the facts of that checkered career.

KATHY SHAIDLE’S GUIDE TO VISITING ISRAEL….SEE NOTE PLEASE

http://pjmedia.com/lifestyle/2012/11/23/4-places-to-visit-in-israel-once-its-safe-to-go-back-part-one/?singlepage=true

THANK YOU KATHY…AND NEXT TIME PLEASE VISIT HEBRON THE CRADLE OF THE JEWISH FAITH AND ISRAEL’S FIST CAPITAL, AND GO TO EFRAT AND ARIEL AND GUSH ETZION AND TEKOAH AND SHILOH….THOSE LOVELY TOWNS THAT ARE STILL CALLED
“SETTLEMENTS” IN ISRAEL’S HEARTLAND…..RSK

Folks who say visiting Israel is like traveling back in time don’t know the half of it. Say: Do you find yourself missing the 1970s — even though, like me, you vowed you never would? That is: Do you miss litter, graffiti, off-leash dogs, free-range cats, smoking on the beach, 13 TV channels, no wheelchair ramps — plus polyester everything?

Because if so, Israel is the 70s with cellphones! You’ll love it! Heck, the same war’s still going on! Seriously: This shiksa just got back from her second trip to Israel — not a moment too soon, from the looks of things — and I’m here with the first of a series of articles that will go from macro to micro.

PJMedia’s own Barry Rubin literally wrote the book on Israel. I read it before I left and recommend it highly. But he’s a Jew who has lived there for years. I’m writing as a gentile two-time visitor.

To that end, I’ll start off with an overviews of major cities and regions in Israel, then drill down in the coming weeks, to cover specific attractions; define words that don’t mean what you (or more accurately, your dorky grad student nephew) think they mean (i.e., “check point,” “settlement,” “refugee camp”); then offer tips on food, language, manners and more.
