(Carl) Prime Minister Netanyahu is determined to attack Iran before the US Presidential election.
The TV station’s military reporter Alon Ben-David, who earlier this year was given extensive access to the Israel Air Force as it trained for a possible attack, reported that, since upgraded sanctions against Iran have failed to force a suspension of the Iranian nuclear program in the past two months, “from the prime minister’s point of view, the time for action is getting ever closer.”For those who understand Hebrew (sorry, no English on this one), let's go to the videotape.
Asked by the news anchor in the Hebrew-language TV report how close Israel now was to “a decision and perhaps an attack,” Ben-David said: “It appears that we are closer than ever.”
He said it seemed that Netanyahu was not waiting for a much-discussed possible meeting with US President Barack Obama, after the UN General Assembly gathering in New York late next month — indeed, “it’s not clear that there’ll be a meeting.” In any case, said Ben-David, “I doubt Obama could say anything that would convince Netanyahu to delay a possible attack.”
The report added that Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak believe Obama would have no choice but to give backing for an Israeli attack before the US presidential elections in November.
(IBD) The Left: An Occupy organizer admitted over the weekend that the goal of his protest group was to "overthrow the capitalist system and build communism." So the cat's out of the bag again on this bunch. Where is the outrage?
The true agenda of the Occupy movement has been revealed — it's a totalitarian one. Billing itself as a spontaneous people's revolution and embraced by the media and Democrat political establishment, Occupy is really a destructive band of thugs whose goal is the violent demise of democracy.
Speaking at a "People's Assembly" in Washington, former Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 president Mike Golash told Occupy members his goal was to "make revolution in the United States, overthrow the capitalist system and build communism."The Occupy organizer added that he was "trying to learn something from the examples of the Soviet Union, Red China and Castro's Cuba. ... What can we learn from them so we can build a more successful movement to transform capitalist society?" he asked.
This attachment to the miserable failure of communism — an ideology that left 100 million people dead in the 20th century and met its demise as an idea after millions rose up in 1989-90 to repudiate it — is insane.
Remarks like Golash's were common among the Occupy mobs who filthied up Los Angeles and other cities last year — perfectly representative of Occupy thinking.
Such talk never fazed anyone at the "People's Assembly" either. Maybe that's because it's of a piece with the thinking of Occupy master planner, SEIU boss Stephen Lerner, who in 2011 said he wanted to bring down the stock market and destroy banks such as JPMorgan.
Occupy flourishes because it draws support and legitimacy from the media and like-minded Democratic politicians who pitch a fit anytime someone accuses them of supporting the destruction of democracy.
Not long ago, Democrats pounded Rep. Allen West for pointing out that Congress is loaded with soft-core communists who sugarcoat themselves as the "progressive caucus." They are Occupy's loudest supporters.
Democratic leaders such as then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi hailed Occupy as "spontaneous," while President Obama himself heaped sympathy on the group, even intervening in a local police matter to keep Occupy Portland members from being arrested.
It's a disgrace. Occupy is nothing but a far-left group, learning nothing from the past yet drawing support from the left. Is communism the agenda they really stand for? From Golash's remarks, it looks like it.
Jewish Woman after 'victory' in Custody Battle With Saudi Prince falls out Window? Police call it an ACCIDENT?Labels: Candice Cohen Ahnine» France» Paris» Sattam al-Saud» Saudis
(mfs-theothernews.com)'Strange' Tragic End For Jewish Woman after 'victory' in Custody Battle With Saudi Prince.(YNet).Paris - The tragic story of Candice Cohen Ahnine, 35, a French Jewish woman who was in the midst of a bitter custody battle for her daughter came to a sad end last week when just a short time before she was finally set to see her daughter, she fell to her death from her Paris apartment window.Cohen-Ahnine was involved in a custody battle with the father of her 11-year-old daughter Aya, a Saudi prince - Sattam al-Saud since 2008 when he kidnapped Aya. After years of courtroom struggles, the court ruled that Candice had a right to visit her daughter, and Candice was set to leave for Riyadh to visit Aya next month.
In January she won her first legal battle when a Paris court declared that Aya must be returned to her mother’s custody.
Investigators reportedly had been leaning towards an accident as cause of death, but reports in the French media suggested Ms Cohen-Ahnine had slipped and fallen to her death “as if she was escaping something dangerous.”Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported. Cohen-Ahnine’s lawyer, Laurence Tarquiny-Charpentier, said the death “seemed to be some sort of accident,” and did not know whether foul play was involved. She said witnesses had been at the scene of the crime, and more information about the circumstances of the death is expected Monday. “What I can tell you is that it wasn’t a suicide,” Tarquiny-Charpentier said.
“She was a woman who was a real fighter and a very positive person, and plus, there were plans to see Aya in mid-September. That was her greatest motivation of all.” Cohen-Ahnine recently wrote a book describing her fight to “get back” her 11-year-old daughter, Aya.
She alleged that when she agreed to visit Prince Sattam with her daughter in 2008, she was immediately locked up in a Riyadh palace, and accused by authorities of being a Muslim who converted to Judaism, a crime punishable by death in Saudi Arabia.
When a maid left her door open she was able to escape to the French embassy, and return alone to France. In January, a Paris criminal court ordered Prince Sattam al-Saud to hand over custody of his daughter to her mother and provide child support of 10,000 euros a month.
But the prince reportedly dismissed the ruling, and said: “If need be, I’ll go like (Osama) bin Laden and hide in the mountains with Aya.” Nonetheless Cohen-Ahnine’s lawyer said delicate negotiations with the prince had led to improved ties, and a planned visit with Aya was due next month. Simply obtaining the visit was, “already a positive first step, because getting to open the doors to the prince’s palace was very complex, and required the work of a huge team of people,” her lawyer said.
“We were so close to her goal. And we spoke on the telephone the day before she died. We were supposed to meet tomorrow to get things ready,” said Tarquiney-Charpentier. “It’s so painful, and at the same time, there is this feeling of failure.” Cohen-Ahnine and the prince met in London and their daughter was born in November 2001. Their relationship continued until 2006 when he allegedly announced he was obliged to marry a cousin, but that she could be a second wife. She refused and they separated. The prince denied ever having kidnapped the child or the mother. Reacting to the death, Jean-Claude Elfassi, co-author of Cohen-Ahnine’s book wrote in his blog on August 17: “I can only show my disgust at the slowness of the investigating judge in charge of her case, who after three years of investigating never delivered an arrest warrant for Prince Sattam al-Saud,” wrote Elfassi. He added: “Fate has been cruel to her (Cohen-Ahnine). When they parted she promised her daughter” ‘We will meet again, I’ll come get you, I’ll never leave you.’”Read the full story here.
Calling it a "miracle" she's still alive, Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.
O'Donnell, 50, credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in ads.
"Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," she wrote Monday in her usual verse form on her blog.
O'Donnell said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. In a statement on Monday, her rep Cindi Berger tells PEOPLE, "She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky."
"They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here," she wrote.
Earlier this month, O'Donnell, 50, shared the news that her fiancée Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare affliction.
O'Donnell said her own health problems started on Aug. 14 after she helped "an enormous woman" struggling to get out of her car in a parking lot in Nyack, N.Y.
A few hours later, her chest ached, both arms felt sore as if they were bruised, she became nauseous, and had clammy skin.
"maybe this is a heart attack," she wrote. "i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa."
She took the aspirin recommended for people who think they are suffering a heart attack but didn't call 911. She said that hundreds of thousands of women die each year of heart attacks and that many never dial the emergency number.
"by some miracle i was not one of them," she wrote, adding: "know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/CALL 911/save urself."
The rest of the article is predictable. They blame management and fail to realize how out of touch with working people the newspaper is. It is the editorial that was the problem, not internet strategy. They might have even made money off prostitution for a while longer had they not backed just about every liberal fascist. it isn't internet strategy or business decisions that leads to media demise... it's the fact that the media isn't in touch with the working people and their needs. The left is dead. It's been dead for a while. It was on life support with the Palestine crowd, but the lies have been exposed there too... and so went the readers.(buzzfeed.com) Alt-weeklies are always dying. But the news Friday that four editorial staffers were laid off or had their hours cut to part-time at The Village Voice — two features writers, a news blogger and a listings editor — makes the sad fact of that paper’s eventual demise, evident for years, more immediate. The paper now has one news blogger, two features writers, a music editor, a few people working on listings and one critic, aided by a couple contributors, writing about food.
You can't save even a feminist rag with prostitution I guess.
Bloomberg: The Government Should Make Immigrants Live In Detroit, If They “Survive 7 Years” Make Them Citizens…Bloomberg: The Government Should Make Immigrants Live In Detroit, If They “Survive 7 Years” Make Them Citizens…Labels: Bloomberg
(CNSNews.com) – Mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York said last week that the federal government should assign immigrants to live in cities such as Detroit and “if they survive seven years” make them citizens.
“All the federal government’s got to do is say, ‘We’re gonna welcome here in this country–first come, first served–families, if they’re willing to come here under the following terms,: Bloomberg said in Boston on Aug. 14. “We’re going to assign you a city–let’s say Detroit–you got to agree to not be arrested and not take any federal, state or city money, and you’ve got to live there for seven years, and if you survive seven years, we’ll make you and your family full citizens.”
Bloomberg was speaking along with News Corporation Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch at a forum sponsored by the New England Council.
Bloomberg predicted if the federal government assigned immigrants to cities such as Detroit they would buy and fix up “houses that are derelict,” improve the local schools, create businesses and stimulate the local economy.
(Algemeiner) IDF reservists. Photo: Tazpit News Agency. By Aryeh Savir and Gil Lavie
A newly released IDF survey has found that the highest number of reservists per capita recruited by the Israeli Defense Forces over the past year have come from the Judea and Samaria region. The survey, conducted annually by the Israeli army, has found that Judea and Samaria residents are the top geographic group of Israeli citizens serving in the army at 34%. Residents of the North followed at 29%, 28% from Jerusalem and Central Israel and 27% from the South. Of the reserves members from Judea and Samaria, a majority of 60% were found to be serving in combat units.
The poll also showed surprising results in the national diversity it found in the Israeli Defense Forces. 1,200 of the reservists were from the Republic of Georgia, 720 originated from Iran, 30 from the Philippines, and 4 from Bahrain. The study highlights a rarely seen picture of reserve duty personnel, showing that minorities and immigrants play a larger role than previously thought. A total of 19% of reserve soldiers were born outside Israel.(MORE)
The goal of the project is to promote fish farming techniques and desalinate and purify the waters of the lake, which is one of the main sources of livelihood for some 5 million people living in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania.
According to the agreement, Israel will donate advanced technologies especially developed in the Jewish state, as well as knowledge and professional guidance.
Deputy Minister Ayalon said that "projects of these kinds show the true and beautiful side of Israel, and strengthen Israel's ties with the continent of Africa.
"While Iran tries to get a foothold in Africa with weapons, bombs and terror, Israel brings Africa progress, as well as agricultural and economic humanitarian aid. This is just an example of the difference between the fanatic ayatollahs' regime and the Israeli democracy," he added.
Israel's Ambassador to Nairobi Gil Heskel said Israel intends to develop more projects, noting that it was received with "tremendous appreciation."
"We have since received many requests from other heads of African states to expand the project to their countries as well," Heskel added.
...and that my friend is family values: if Socialism were effective it might look a little like that.
Surveys have shown this phenomena before, but this study by The Chronicle of Philanthropy seems very thorough.
Which states are more generous about giving money to charities? Red or blue states? A report by The Chronicle of Philanthropy, "How America Gives," uses the most recent available IRS data from 2008 to find out.Of the top 5 most charitable states, only Washington, D.C. - which isn't a state at all -- made the rankings. Utah was first:
The answer, according to the report, is that people in Republican-leaning states give somewhat more, mostly because of religious ties. The Chronicle studied individual tax returns and studied demographic characteristics such as religion and political affiliation. The report found that states that were in favor of the 2008 presidential candidate John McCain gave higher percentages of discretionary income toward charities.

The state of Utah, where a majority of residents are Mormon and encouraged to give ten percent of their income to the church, had the highest percentage, 10.6 percent. Residents in Utah had an estimated median discretionary income of $49,551, or after taxes, housing, food, and other living expenses.
The state of Utah shows how important religion is to giving, said Peter Panepento, the Chronicle of Philanthropy's assistant managing editor. In Utah, the estimated median contribution was $5,255, as reported to the IRS on itemized tax returns.Utah was followed by Washington, Mississippi, Alabama, and Tennessee. Utah topped the list with 10.6% of median income given to charity. By contrast, true blue Massachusetts gave only 2.8%.
The states and communities that tended to give the highest percentage of income to charity were those with high rates of religious participation.
"Utah, far and away, has given the most to charity, with its strong tie to the Mormon religion," he said.
Many religions, including the Mormon faith, encourage or direct believers to give 10 percent, or tithe, from their income to the church.
Don't you wish those conservatives weren't so heartless and uncaring about the poor?
