How ‘Bout That German Plane!

Pilot locked out of cockpit as plane descended into mountainside

Hmm, how did this happen? Why did one pilot refuse to open the door for his partner? Someone I had coffee with this morning is sure that one pilot left to use the men’s room, while the other had a heart attack and died. Ya’ think? Must be because otherwise we’re looking at yet another example of Congregational Terrorism, CT™, not to be confused with the state.

Or, as President Obama would say, “When folks are just flying to Dusseldorf and other folks decide to take down the airplane… ”

As officials struggled Wednesday to explain why a jet with 150 people on board crashed amid a relatively clear sky, an investigator said evidence from a cockpit voice recorder indicated one pilot left the cockpit before the plane’s descent and was unable to get back in.

A senior French military official involved in the investigation described a “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona, Spain, to Düsseldorf, Germany. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door, and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger, and no answer. There is never an answer.”

He said, “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

Undoubtedly a heart attack. What a shame.

CNN unravels the mysteries of the Israeli electorate…

You may have heard that Israeli politics is extremely complex. But one of the most important forces at play there is actually rather straightforward: When Israelis feel safe and strong they tend to support moderate parties. When they feel vulnerable they move to the right. Understand that, and you will understand Israel — and why President Barack Obama may have inadvertently given Benjamin Netanyahu a helping hand.

Now, they have the general idea, but are fuzzy on the nuances. Who votes for the Left when their security is threatened? How dumb must you be to do that? Oh, sorry, Americans, I didn’t mean to sound so harsh.

But listen to how dumb CNN sounds here:

Clearly, it’s not all Obama’s fault. Netanyahu’s opponents also failed to address security issues, believing a focus on pocketbook matters would be enough. And Netanyahu is a skilled, articulate and shrewd politician.

But Obama, like it or not, was one of the reasons for Likud’s success.

Think of it this way, CNN. Netanyahu is a realist and a competent leader. Obama is neither. Obama has frightened Israel so much that they have finally decided that they are better off with a competent leader, even if the US President can’t stand the guy. CNN completely misses the obvious here. Is that accidental? Really? Hard to believe.

Oh, I get it. It isn’t the journalist that is dumb; it is the readers:

Through much of his presidency, Obama has failed to convince Israelis thay they can trust him. And his handling of the recent spat with Netanyahu only added to the problem. By appearing to dismiss Netanyahu’s warning of a “nuclear nightmare” over the Iran talks by arguing that the prime minister was offering no “viable alternatives,” Obama missed an opportunity to reassure security conscious Israelis that the United States will safeguard their survival. His tacit acknowledgment that there might be no alternative to an imperfect deal was of little comfort to Israelis who have spent years hearing genocidal threats from the Iranian regime.

The fact that Obama has become one of the key reasons why Netanyahu continues to win elections in Israel is ironic considering Israelis are profoundly worried about the deteriorating ties with the United States, a relationship they consider key to ensuring their country’s survival.

Amazing. Who doesn’t understand this stuff? The real threat to world security and stability is the idiocy of the US public.

Cynical, Hypocritical Europe Recommends Sanctions On Israel

There has never been a better time to travel to Israel

The European Union has produced an explosive new report recommending sanctions against Israel over its construction policies and security measures in Jerusalem, the British daily Guardian reported on its website on Friday.

The leaked report, which comes just days after incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu handily won re-election, describes Israel’s capital as a city gripped by the worst “polarization and violence” since the Second Intifada of a decade ago.

The document, which is an amalgamation of recommendations prepared by European diplomats stationed in the region, accuses the Israeli government of exacerbating tensions in the city by accelerating construction in the contest eastern part of the capital.

According to the Guardian, the city has been beset by a “vicious cycle of violence … increasingly threatening the viability of the two-state solution.” The report goes on to say that Israel’s “systematic” construction of housing in “sensitive areas” has compounded the problem.

The EU report also takes Israel to task for what it describes as “heavy-handed policing and punitive measures” against Palestinians in the city, “including eviction and home demolitions by Israeli forces.”

More significantly, the document prescribes a series of measures aimed at curbing the distribution and sale of products manufactured beyond the 1967 Green Line.

Etc. I have personally boycotted Europe for a number of years. I call on all of Bloodthirstan to avoid EU products, services, and certainly travel. They are a vicious Jew-hating culture and they deserve to be shunned completely.

State Department, Obama Tried To Throw Israeli Election

and “non-profit” group in charge of interference applied to new tax status as soon as Congress began investigation

We knew this, but here is further proof. The slimes filed for a different tax exempt status as soon as Senator Cruz began asking questions:

The American nonprofit OneVoice Movement – under scrutiny by a U.S. Senate panel over possible links to a campaign to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – quietly filed paperwork that would allow it to engage in political activism after two leading Republican lawmakers questioned its use of government funds, FoxNews.com has learned.

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., sent a letter Jan. 29 to Secretary of State John Kerry asking whether the group ­– as a recipient of almost $350,000 in recent grants from the Obama administration’s State Department – had violated its tax-exempt status when it began backing the virulently anti-Netanyahu Victory 15 campaign in Israel earlier that month.

Cruz also publicly asked whether Obama – who’s had a well-documented adversarial relationship with Netanyahu – had “launched a political campaign against” the Israeli leader in the run-up to the election which was held on Tuesday.

“What does it say about the President of the United States when he’s more concerned about undermining and attacking the prime minister of Israel than he is standing up to the mortal threat a nuclear Iran poses?”- Sen. Ted Cruz, (R-Texas)
OneVoice, which until November was headed by a veteran diplomat from the Clinton administration, quickly bushed off claims from critics that its backing of V15 meant it was targeting Netanyahu. Such an effort would be illegal under its tax-exempt status, which falls under section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Just five days after the public dispatch of the Cruz-Zeldin letter, a “corporation service company” registered a new funding entity in Delaware called PeaceWorks Action, Inc. under a section of the tax code that still governs nonprofits, but allows them to engage in a limited amount of political activity. Listed under section is 501(c)4 of the tax code, PeaceWorks Action, Inc. is now featured on the OneVoice Website as one of OneVoice’s funders, alongside PeaceWorks Foundation, whose name has long been present, and which holds 501(c)3 status like OneVoice itself.

Critics are likely to see the registration as tacit admission that it had indulged in political activity alongside V15, which itself has been advised by former Obama campaign aides, including his top field organizer, Jeremy Bird.

Critics will see a tacit admission? How about people in possession of a brain will see it as an admission of wrong-doing? How can you not see this?

Best Political Ad Evah!

Last night, while watching election results, I turned to my husband and said, “I get this country completely. Why can’t I understand my own country anymore?” The truth is, Israel is completely clear. Here in the US we’ve elected an effete, worthless snob – twice. But people adore him. I just do not understand how or why we are the way we are.

Arab Terrorists Attack Bus, Injure Israeli Children

Let’s give them a country!

A two-year-old boy and six-year-old girl were lightly wounded by shards of glass during a rock attack on the Egged bus they were traveling in near Pisgat Ze’ev in Jerusalem on Tuesday afternoon, police said.

According to spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, as the bus was driving down Route 1 past French Hill at approximately 4:30 p.m., Arab suspects threw several large rocks at it, forcing the driver to pull over and evacuate the passengers.

The two children sustained cuts during the attack and were treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being transferred to Shaare Zedic Medical Center in Jerusalem, Rosenfeld said. No other injuries were reported. Police are searching the area for the suspects, he said.

Nice, peace-loving people.

Terrorism: It’s The Family Biz

Child who murdered Israeli Arab is brother of Toulouse Jewish school massacre.

The religion of peace:

PARIS – French officials are investigating whether a child shown shooting dead an Israeli Arab in a video posted by Islamic State militants is French and has ties to an al Qaeda-inspired gunman who killed seven people in March 2012, a police source said.

The video shows Muhammad Musallam sitting in a room wearing an orange jumpsuit, talking about how he had been recruited and trained by the Israeli intelligence service Mossad.

It shows Musallam being escorted to a field and shot by a child, described by an older, French-speaking fighter as one of “cubs of the caliphate”.

A French police source told Reuters the intelligence service believes the French-speaking fighter was Sabri Essid, the half-brother of Mohamed Merah, who killed three soldiers, a rabbi and three Jewish children before he was shot dead by police.

The source said they were also trying to determine whether the child was Essid’s son.

March 11 marks three years to the day since Merah began his 10-day killing spree in the Toulouse region of southwestern France.

Captain Obvious here: France has a problem.

Netanyahu No Longer Supports Palestinian State

Iran and IS have made past positions “irrelevant”

“Simply irrelevant” is how Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu described his former support for a demilitarized Palestinian state on Sunday.

“In the situation created in the Middle East, any territory that will be evacuated will be taken over by radical Islam and terrorist organizations supported by Iran,” Netanyahu said. “Therefore, there will not be any withdrawals or concessions. The matter is simply irrelevant.”

The prime minister’s statements came in response to questions about an article that appeared in the popular religious-Zionist pamphlet Olam Katan (“Small World”).

The article claimed that the Likud’s answer to a question as to its leader’s position on Palestinian statehood was: “The prime minister told the public that the Bar-Ilan speech [in which he advocated a demilitarized Palestinian state] is canceled. Netanyahu’s entire political biography is a fight against the establishment of a Palestinian state.”

This is a beautiful example of what happens when the US fails to lead. It wasn’t necessary for us to stick our noses into the Israeli election; it was necessary for us to stand up to Muslim terrorism, avoid the hasty withdrawal from Iraq and soon Afghanistan, stop making weak, ignorant comments a la Cairo, 2009, stop with the ridiculous appeasement and phony language that dodges the truth of what we face. We need to grow up. As much as I despise Hamas, I feel a little sorry for the Palestinians as I write this. They’ve been encouraged by the US to turn to terrorism, (Kerry) even as the US pulls away from Israel. What did we think Netanyahu would do in response?

Boys Reenact ISIS Burning Video

When we were kids, we’d watch cowboys and Indians on television, and then play cowboys and Indians. Kids in Yemen watch live burnings and then burn their chums.

A group of boys in Yemen reportedly burned their friend in a reenactment of the Islamic State murder of Jordanian pilot Lt. Muath al-Kaseasbeh.

As many as seven boys trapped a 10-year-old boy in a wooden cage in the northern village of Al Dahthath, before pouring fuel over him and setting him on fire, local journalist Mohammed Mouzahem told Gulf News on Wednesday.

One of the boys, standing on a chair, gave orders to the others to set the boy ablaze, the reporter added.

The boy suffered burns to one of his legs, but was saved when residents saw him crying for help while his friends watched. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Kids learn from adults and learn from their culture. This is what they picked up from the adults around them, and from the culture in which they are embedded.

Is The Israeli Public As Brain Dead As The US Public?

Are they buying this?

former aide to President Barack Obama told Israeli television on Friday that the United States would be able to detect any Iranian effort to “sprint” toward an atomic weapon as part of the emerging nuclear agreement in the P5+1 talks.

Dennis Ross, the former Mideast peace envoy, told Channel 2 on Friday that the agreement being discussed would enable Western officials to perform “anytime, anywhere inspections of declared and undeclared sites” for a period of up to 10 years.

Ross said that while there is an obvious need to see what the final agreement would look like, he said that he has received indications that the Americans will insist on a deal that will include “verifiable mechanisms for detection.”

“It would take a year’s time if [the Iranians] were making a determination they wanted to move towards a nuclear weapon – and they would have to move quickly,” Ross told Channel 2. “That would be something that would be detectable. So you’d have a time frame if they were making a decision to move quickly to detect what they were doing and do something about it.”

Ross said that the Obama administration is aiming for a deal that offers “transparency.”

And I had always respected Dennis Ross… Well, sir, here are three questions: 1. What happens in 10 years? 2. The fact that the US could know what Iran is up to doesn’t mean that they will do anything about it, does it? 3. Why do you believe this nonsense. You’re better than that.

Very disappointing indeed.
