SO MANY SOFT CORE SUPPORTERS OF ISRAEL HAILED THE WITHDRAWAL FROM GAZA AS A GREAT THING….A PROSPECT FOR PEACE…..SOME JEWISH PHILANTHROPISTS ACTUALLY BOUGHT FARMS, HOMES AND EQUIPMENT FOR THE ARABS….EVERYTHING DOWN TO THE SEEDS WAS TRASHED. ….YOU WERE ALL SO WRONG. HIGH TIME TO SAY SO…AND STOP BEATING THE DRUMS FOR MORE ISRAELI WITHDRAWALS AND CONCESSIONS…RSK
Israel’s unilateral disengagement plan also known as the “Disengagement plan”, “Gaza expulsion plan”, and “Hitnatkut”, was adopted by the government on June 6, 2004 and enacted in August 2005, to evict all Israelis from the Gaza Strip and from four settlements in the northern West Bank.
Those Israeli citizens who refused to accept government compensation packages and voluntarily vacate their homes prior to the August 15, 2005 deadline, were evicted by Israeli security forces over a period of several days. The eviction of all residents, demolition of the residential buildings and evacuation of associated security personnel from the Gaza Strip was completed by September 12, 2005. The eviction and dismantlement of the four settlements in the northern West Bank was completed ten days later.

“The Jewish people have forged a successful state in their historic homeland,” said U.S. President Barack Obama in his speech to the U.N. General Assembly on September 21, 2011. This theme of “people” and “historic homeland” has for centuries resonated with most Jews round the world. However, the president’s words were even more welcome, because our own time witnesses an increasingly bitter controversy over the Jewish people’s right to political self-determination in a part of its aboriginal homeland.
That fierce debate inevitably revolves around the political and legal doctrine of the self-determination of peoples. There is also the companion doctrine of aboriginal rights, because the Jewish people is a small indigenous minority in the Arab Middle East, which in turn is an important part of the greater Muslim world that also includes key countries like Turkey, Iran, Pakistan, and Indonesia. To speak of aboriginal rights suggests that there is significant moral and legal weight to the circumstance that the Jews — periodically persecuted and perennial victims of discrimination — nonetheless for more than twenty-five centuries kept some demographic and cultural ties to their aboriginal homeland. And is there not added moral and legal weight where that particular people’s aboriginal rights have already been explicitly recognized in the relevant treaties, which are the highest source of international law?

Two of the Middle East’s dictators, Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, want to form a united front against NATO ally Turkey for what they see as dangerous meddling in regional affairs.
Believing that it has blunted Saudi Arabia’s influence in the Middle East, Iran is now turning its focus on Turkey in an effort to establish Iranian hegemony in the region.
Iranian officials in recent weeks have stepped up their attacks against Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan for allowing NATO to station an early-warning radar in Turkey as part of NATO’s missile defense system aimed at countering ballistic missile threats from neighboring Iran. But the Iranians are also furious about Turkey’s continuous support of Syrian opposition forces, who are suffering a brutal crackdown from the Assad regime.
HE’S THE BROTHER OF ALWALEED BIN TALAL WHOSE “MUNIFICENCE” FUNDS ALL THE MIDDLE EAST STUDIES PROGRAMS AT MAJOR AMERICAN UNIVERSITIES….NICE HUH?…..RSK
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — A member of Saudi Arabia’s royal family has increased to $1 million a reward offered to anyone who captures an Israeli soldier to swap him for Palestinian prisoners.
Prince Khaled bin Talal, brother of billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, told kingdom’s al-Daleel TV station by telephone Saturday that his offer was in retaliation for alleged Israeli threats to Sheik Awadh al-Qarani, a prominent Saudi cleric who promised $100,000 for capturing an Israeli soldier.
The Saudi offers follow in the wake of the release of Israeli soldier Sgt. Gilad Schalit, who was held by Hamas in Gaza for more than five years. Israel has agreed to free over 1,000 prisoners in exchange.

FROM MARCH, 2011
A Muslim group has announced plans to cover the Statue of Liberty with a burqa and then replace her with a minaret. But there’s no reason at all to take such plans seriously. Lady Liberty being treated the way the Muslim world treats women in general, is as unlikely as a massive mosque being built just downwind of Ground Zero. Or Queen Elizabeth donning a hijab on a visit to Abu Dhabi. It’s one of those things that we’re told not to worry about until it happens and then objecting to it becomes a crime against tolerance. The tolerance of intolerance.
In Germany, a Kosovar Muslim airport employee cried, “Allahu Akbar” and opened fire on a group of US airmen. Of course the motive has yet to be determined, and after a long period of speculation touching on everything from his mortgage problems to his scratchy uniform, the truth will be known and quietly buried, along with the two men he killed. Little more than a decade ago, the United States Air Force was instrumental in helping create a terrorist state for Kosovar Muslims. This is the gratitude they got in return. A hail of bullets. And this is the gratitude that Westerners can always expect for their aid.
Anjem Choudary, the leader of the Islamic group that would like to sandblast Lady Liberty, and Arid Uka, the airport gunmen, were not hatched in some cave in Pakistan. Choudary was born in the London Borough of Bexley. Arid Uka was born and raised in Germany, where his family had lived for some 40 years. They are not immigrants, but native born European Muslims fighting to remake Europe into an Islamic state. The idea is fanciful, just like the Statue of Liberty being blown up by the American Taliban to make way for a minaret. But there was a time when a short Austrian corporal’s plans to build a Thousand Year Reich on the bones of Europe were as laughable as Choudary’s antics.
