Nigeria's secret service said on Tuesday it had intercepted 13 containers of weapons from Iran in what Israeli defense sources believe may be part of a new smuggling route from Iran to Hamas in Gaza.
Rocket launchers, grenades and other explosives camouflaged as building material were seized in the Nigerian port of Lagos after being unloaded from an Iranian ship.

An expert on demography told Arutz Sheva's Hebrew-language news service that Netanyahu's proposal is not unlike France's way of dealing with the gypsy population. Prof. Sergio Della Pergola of the Hebrew University said, “It is a little like what [French president Nicola] Sarkozy did with the gypsies: he sent planes to Romania with gypsy immigrants [on board] and paid each immigrant 300 Euro.”The Ministry of Defense said Sunday that construction work on the security fence between Israel and Egypt will begin this month in an effort to stop the infiltration of illegal immigrants. At the same time, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu instructed government ministries to try and find African countries that would be willing to take in the illegals that Israel expels, in return for financial compensation. The demographer said there was “a bit of a paradox” in the construction of the anti-infiltrator fence. “On the one hand, one needs to prevent the entry of refugees and terrorists through the border. But on the other hand, it is actually a good sign that the border between Israel and Egypt is an open one, because it shows that there are no hostile incidents between the two countries.”
Who is truly pro-Israel? Joel Pollak, the Republican candidate for Congress in Illinois 09. Here's a letter from Joel to the JPost.Sir, – In his recent op-ed (“More fear and loathing on the campaign trail,” Washington watch, October 21), Douglas Bloomfield accused me of turning Israel into a “partisan wedge issue” in my race for US Congress. In fact, J Street – which has donated tens of thousands of dollars to my opponent, Jan Schakowsky – was founded to create a wedge not just between Republicans and Democrats but also between the US and Israel.I'd love to see his pro-Israel Congress. Maybe if the Republicans do well enough on Tuesday it will happen - at least in the House.
The bipartisan consensus on Israel is in danger because the Far Left of the Democratic Party believes that Israel is the root cause of conflict in the Middle East. That is why recent polls show that 85 percent of Republicans sympathize more with Israelis than Palestinians, while only 48% of Democrats do.
In his article, Bloomfield also made several factual errors, which were likely fed to him by the Schakowsky campaign. I’ve never “boasted” about Pam Geller’s endorsement, for example. Nor did I tell him that Barack Obama has “made it acceptable to hate Israel.”
Bloomfield plucked that quote from an earlier speech, without providing the context, and misrepresented what I actually told him via e-mail: “I believe President Obama has the potential to be a friend of Israel, but has not behaved as one, unfortunately.”
It amazes me that far-left groups, which maintain that a true friend of Israel is one that criticizes Israel, refuse to criticize their good friend Barack Obama.
It amazes me that we Americans do not demand more of representatives from strong pro-Israel districts, and that we have been content to see them meet the lowest common denominator of pro-Israel support.
A pro-Israel Congress would not just vote for foreign aid. A truly pro-Israel Congress would vote to de-fund the UN Human Rights Council. It would deny funding to the Palestinian Authority until it recognized Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.
A truly pro-Israel Congress would criticize President Obama for singling out Israel. A truly pro- Israel Congress would have provided assistance to the Iranian democracy movement. A truly pro-Israel Congress would declare that the US will support Israel in the event it must launch a preemptive strike against Iran. A truly pro-Israel Congress would demand that the international community act now to free Gilad Schalit.
That is the kind of pro-Israel Congress I want to create. I want to be a leader on the floor of the House – not just a vote.
