It is sometimes difficult to know WHICH thread to put WHAT news on.
Therefore I am starting an ISRAEL thread for what doesnt go on one of the following,
or involves several of the following, yet doesnt belong on WAR DRUMS.  (stop laughing!)

I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat.
Then I will enter into judgment with them there on behalf of My people and
My inheritance, Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations -
and they have divided up My land!

Tel Aviv, ISRAEL, photo by Jerry Golden

Silkworm can reach Tel Aviv
Nov. 2009
 Palestinian Hamas successfully tested a new Iran-made Silkworm that can reach Tel Aviv.  The new missile is a Chinese C-802 Silkworm.  This is the missile Hizballah fired to cripple the Israeli missile ship in 2006 during the second Lebanon war.

Tehran has showered thousands of these missiles on Hizballah. Iran arming Hellzballah and
Hamas through Syria and Turkey with missiles capable of reaching Israel's heartland.
Iran is intent on breaking the Israeli Mediterranean naval blockade on Gaza.

Gaza Silkworms are a menace to Israeli southern naval bases, especially in Ashdod port.
They are also precise enough to hit power stations and fuel depots.
In 1987 Iran hit Kuwait oil installations with a silkworm.  
North Korea sold Iran and Syria EM52 midget submarines designed to drop small
commando raider units on targeted shores and sow mines in enemy harbors.

If Arabs laid down their weapons, there'd be peace today.
If Israel laid down their weapons there'd be no Israel

This development would undo the unwritten US-Israeli-Palestinian deal, whereby Israel has removed dozens of checkpoints on West Bank roads and withdrawn its troops from Palestinian cities, because it would demonstrate that the Palestinians cannot be trusted to maintain security and law and order in the regions under their authority.

0bama DEMANDED Israel make itself vulnerable to attacks.  0bama is an enemy of Christians, Jews, and GOD.... and America.
Overnight, Israel put roadblocks back on a number of northern West Bank roads in case the Fatah killers were hiding in the area of the attack between Einav and Shavei Shomron and had not reached Tulkarm.

Jenin is on the southern edge of the Valley of Megiddo - site of future Armageddon
GOD DOES NOT APPROVE of a 'Palestinian' state!!

Palestinians Kill Rabbi
Dec 2009
 IDF blockades Tulkarm after terrorists murder Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai outside Shavei Shomron, West Bank.
Israeli forces placed Tulkarm under blockade Dec. 24, after Palestinian Al Aksa terrorists murdered Rabbi Meir Avshalom Chai, father of 7, in a drive-by attack on his car close to his home in Shavei Shomron.  He died of a head wound shortly after his car was hit by 10 bullets. The Fatah suicide wing, al Aqsa Brigades, claimed responsibility for the attack.  Fatah receives military training from US military forces.  0bama killed this rabbi.

Will Palestinians be willing and able to capture Rabbi Chai's murderers and hand them over to Israel.
If they fail this test, Israel forces will have to go in and take up the pursuit.

US Consulate car nearly runs over Israeli guard
26 Dec 2009
 A dispute is rumbling between Israel and the US Consulate in Jerusalem after a US diplomatic car allegedly tried running over a Defense Ministry security guard recently at an IDF checkpoint in the West Bank. The car had been stopped after the occupants refused to present identification papers.
Israel is also furious that one of the consulate cars was found to have transported a Palestinian without permits between Jerusalem and the West Bank.

The identification of American diplomats from the consulate at IDF checkpoints has been a major sticking point for several years.

In January 2008, the Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria filed complaints with the Foreign Ministry after both US Security Coordinator Lt.-Gen. Keith Dayton and then-consul-general Jacob Walles refused to roll down their windows or open their car doors and show identification papers at a checkpoint.

However, Israel's ire reached a new level after an incident on November 13 in which a five-car convoy of consulate vehicles with diplomatic plates arrived at the Gilboa crossing.

According to a detailed official Israel Police description of the incident obtained exclusively by The Jerusalem Post, the drivers refused to identify themselves or open a window or door. The drivers, according to the report, purposely blocked the crossing, triedrunning over one of the Israeli security guards stationed there and made indecent gestures at female guards.

The entire incident was documented by cameras at the crossing.
in the future, if a diplomatic car did not stop and identify its passengers "immediately," it would not be allowed to pass the checkpoint.
Will IDF shoot a U.S. official?  I'd say - GO AHEAD and SHOOT!!

Ben-Yishai described additional violations by consulate workers, and referred to at least one case in which a female Palestinian without appropriate documentation was found in a diplomatic car. Defense officials told the Post that there had been other similar cases in the past.

"We view this as an attempt to illegally transfer someone," Ben-Yishai said, according to the official police protocol.

Ben-Yishai also said the drivers of the cars, from east Jerusalem, hid their Israeli identity cards and put stickers over their names on their consulate-issued identity cards, since, as they claimed, "they are in a diplomatic vehicle and cannot be touched."

He added that police had filed a complaint with the Foreign Ministry and were conducting their own investigation to identify the driver who had triedrunning over the Israeli security guard.

While Power apologized for the incident and tried
smoothing things over, Laas angered Ben-Yishai, according to the protocol, when he said it was unacceptable for "simple guards" to inspect senior diplomats.

Laas said the communication needed to be between the guard and the driver, since "we can't know who the guard is."
"This situation is being misused, and as proof in the latest incident, they refused to identify themselves and even tried smuggling a Palestinian without permission," Ben-Yishai said, according to theprotocol . "The security guards at the crossings are licensed and are authorized by me, and that is how they should be treated. They are not 'simple guards‚' as Tim Laas called them."

Laas claimed that the Palestinian woman who had been in the car served as a translator for Dayton and the consul and that she had been returning with the team to Israel. He said it was possible that there had been a mishap with her papers.

Concluding the meeting, Ben-Yishai set new procedures under which consulate cars would need to undergo complete inspections if only a driver were present. If diplomats are inside the vehicle, they must open the door and present their identification papers.

A spokesperson from the consulate said that consulate policy was not to comment on internal meetings with Israeli officials.

"In regards to the checkpoints, we enter and exit from the West Bank many times a day through checkpoints controlled by the government of Israel without incident, and consulate officials and drivers always carefully follow the procedures that have been established and agreed to by US and Israeli governments for entering and exiting the West Bank," the spokesperson said. "Any problems that have occurred with checkpoints have been a result of misunderstanding and miscommunication, and we are in regular contact withthe government of Israel regarding those procedures to avoid miscommunications in the future."

In response to the claim that the consulate cars had illegally transported Palestinians, the spokesperson said, "Any allegations that we are illegally transferring people are completely untrue, and as stated earlier, it is in our best interest that we follow the rules so that people who participate in US-funded programs can participate, and it would not be in our best interest to illegally transfer people."

Israelis are willing to divide Jerusalem
Israel is willing to make a sweeping concession -- dividing control of Jerusalem -- as part of a historic final peace pact with Palestinians, a key Cabinet member revealed yesterday.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak signaled that his government is ready to drop its demand that even after the creation of a Palestinian state, Jerusalem would "remain the undivided capital of Israel."

"West Jerusalem and 12 Jewish neighborhoods that are home to 200,000 [Israeli] residents will be ours," Barak told the newspaper Haaretz.
"The Arab neighborhoods in which close to a quarter million Palestinians live will be theirs," he added, referring to the eastern part of the city that was captured from Jordan in the 1967 Mideast war.

Rachel Corrie: A tragedy of the radical left

Rachel Corrie, the Olympia, Wash., college student killed trying to protect a Palestinian house against an Israeli bulldozer, will probably not merit a footnote in history books. That's too bad, because her life and death, the way she has been portrayed in some media, and the reactions of her college are powerful examples of an America with many morally confused individuals.

A Seattle Times columnist described her as a martyr. Her hometown paper, the Olympian, published numerous pictures of a sweet-looking woman from childhood on. It omitted the one photo of Rachel Corrie that USA Today, to its credit, published – Corrie screaming anti-American invective while burning an American flag in Gaza.

Anyone with a heart must extend the deepest condolences to Rachel Corrie's parents. But anyone with a conscience must regard Rachel Corrie's activities with contempt. One hopes that it is not asking too much of people to entertain simultaneously two conflicting emotions – grief for the parents and contempt for the daughter.

Rachel Corrie chose to side with a society that breeds some of the cruelest murderers of innocent people in the world. Rachel Corrie gave her life trying to protect people whose declared aim is to annihilate another country. In the name of saving children's lives, Rachel Corrie chose to defend a society that teaches its young children to blow themselves up and which deliberately targets children for death. And Rachel Corrie went to America's enemies to burn her country's flag.

She was one of the many fools our colleges annually produce. Evergreen State College is reputed to excel in such production. Is anyone aware of a single student or faculty member who repudiated her activities?

Rachel Corrie burned a flag in the streets of Israel, stood guard outside of Yasser Arafat's compound lest terrorism be undermined, and met her fate in the wrong place at the wrong time. But she did have every intention of standing where she was at the moment an Israeli military bulldozer ran her over.

Many Americans have reserved very little sympathy for her situation. It is true that her death would merit a Darwin Award.

I did feel sorry for Rachel Corrie when I dropped in to her memorial service. She was young and fragile, but her mind had been vulnerable to destructive ideas. As I looked around the room, I realized that Evergreen State College had a few things to do with Rachel Corrie's death. A feeling of rage welled up within me. Destructive ideas have destructive consequences.

September particularly dangerous
Dudi Cohen says police increase deployment following this week's terror attacks in West Bank; Beit Hagai residents march in memory of victims
In the wake of the recent terror attacks in the West Bank, Police Commissioner Dudi Cohen said while touring the Hebron area Friday morning, "September is a particularly complex and sensitive month, with diplomatic events affecting the goings on in Israel, Ramadan, the Jewish High Holidays and more.
"Therefore, we have increased our deployment in the face of the threats," he said.
Following the tour, Cohen made his way to east Jerusalem's Temple Mount complex to supervise over the preparations for Ramadan prayers at the Al-Aqsa Mosque.

Israeli car stoned in West Bank
12 year old girl riding in car injured after vehicle is stoned in a third West Bank attack in 3 days.

I do not even like reporting this 'peace' garbage.  A good face will be put on now, the truth will come out later.  Look at the photos?  Does Bibi look happy?
And Hurricane Earl may or may not smack NE USA at this posting Sept 3 at dawn.

I want an agreement
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tells advisors, Newspapers want headlines.  I want to finalize a deal.
Bibi and terror chief Palestinian Abbas hold private meeting in Washington, agree to keep talks discreet.
They reportedly agreed to meet every 2 weeks, with the first meeting set to take place at Sharm el-Sheik with Hellary Clinton and George Mitchell.
These negotiations do NOT need a multitude of advisors, but rather leaders making decisions. The newspapers want headlines, but I want an agreement.
HA!  Everything Palestinians agree to, they break, and when Israel defends herself, the world cries out against Israeli self defense!
Netanyahu and Abbas denounced acts of violence and reiterated their commitment to resolve all core issue en route to the formation of a Palestinian state.

This peace is killing us
Op-ed: One must be stupid, senile to think deal with PA will bring something other than blood, tears.
The peace process and funeral processions always went hand in hand around here.
A day before the signing of the Oslo Accords, while then-Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was already on his way to the ceremony in Washington,
3 IDF soldiers were murdered in a Gaza attack. Yet that was merely the prelude for the huge wave of terror attacks we experienced later on.

Netanyahu at crossroads
Op-ed: Talks with Palestinians will force Netanyahu to make personal, historic decision.
Opposition leader Tzipi Livni has a colorful analogy that goes something like this:
“The Israeli managers of negotiations with the Palestinians think they are entering a bazaar where everyone bargains and yells –
yet then they discover they entered a luxury boutique where people conduct themselves politely and quietly,
and mostly where the prices are set and there is no bargaining.”

This week at the “White House boutique” at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington DC,
the store owner is hosting the nagging client from the Middle East and wishes to fit (almost violently) a suit for him.
So Israel’s prime minister doesn’t like the suit’s colors?  It’s too large and expensive?
Well, the boutique’s owner, Mr. Obama, moved from Chicago to Washington less than two years ago and he’s determined to succeed.

2 Corinthians 6:14-20 (King James Version)

14  Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?

15  And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

18  And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

While I was on yahoo, I saw something about her, and just remembered her. I forgot what happened to her, so I searched it up and to recall it.

I will say this - why do people have this mentality that THEY THEMSELVES can save humanity? At the very least, this woman should have WITNESSED THE GOSPEL to the Palestineans. I mean we all will eventually die, and judgement happens. Either we're saved and have eternal life, or we're not saved and are damned for eternity. These Palestineans are in a religion(Islam) which is very violent and destructive - they are hardly "nice" people, to say the least.

I mean I for one do not think Israel is "perfect" - there are things that I have criticized about the in the past(I won't go into detail here). But ultimately, what this woman did and tried to play the role of God to save humanity is just plain wrong.

The stupid fool Rachel Corrie committed suicide by bulldozer.
Hamas terrorists invaded Israel and killed Jews.
The punishment for terrorist killers is that their home is demolished.

That is what the Israeli bulldozer was about to do when this fool stood in front of it ..

Rachel Corrie was DEFENDING THE MURDER OF JEWS and got what she deserved.

Government schools today teach the kids they can change the world.

CJ -

Palestinians to govern Jews
September 07, 2010
By Aaron Klein
The Lord has reminded me on several occasions that just because a covenant with Death is signed - doesnt mean we will know about it.
Unless its that time - this peace is a joke.
If it is the Time I believe it is ... its not a joke, its a calamity.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secretly has proposed a new plan whereby Jews living in the West Bank will remain in their communities after the territory becomes part of a Palestinian state.

Officials in both Israel and the Palestinian Authority have confirmed the plan to this reporter, marking the first time an Israeli leader has ever put on the table in a serious way a proposal involving Jewish West Bank residents remaining in a Palestinian state.

Conventional negotiations always has assumed an Israeli evacuation of its communities inside any territory taken over by the PA.
The full details of the plan, such as specific security guarantees for the remaining Jews, were not disclosed.
It was unclear how the Jewish residents of the West Bank will react to a plan that would seemingly place their security in the hands of the PA, whose militia members have carried out scores of attacks targeting those very Jewish communities.

IDF to close off West Bank for holiday
September 07, 2010
Wary of additional terror attacks in wake of peace talks, army deploys troops, sets up roadblocks.
Beginning midnight Wednesday, Rosh Hashana Eve, the West Bank will be under closure until Saturday night.
The move is routine for holidays.

The army, wary of more attacks, has deployed additional troops in the area, who will set up random roadblocks as preventative measures.
This prevents Palestinians from entering Israel in order to work, but that they can travel freely throughout the West Bank.
Defense Minister Ehud Barak has issued orders allowing Palestinians to enter Israel only in cases of emergency, with special permission from the Civil Authority.
Those who have obtained passes to visit their families in Israel will also be allowed through.

Tel Aviv Israel airport strike grounds flights
September 13, 2010  
Ground staff with pension demands began a strike at Tel Aviv Ben-Gurion airport on Monday, initially halting all outgoing flights.
Incoming flights allowed to land but all ground services such as offloading of baggage were suspended.

Yom Kippur speculation

The latest .. Sept 12  yeah yeah .. we'll see . . .
Benjamin Netanyahu tells Quartet envoy Tony Blair that while Israel will not build tens of thousands of housing units,
it will not freeze lives of Judea and Samaria residents either.

Sep 13, 2010 there was an odd  4.6 earthquake right in the middle of the Red Sea!
I was VERY surprised!  Then I saw this.  Divine humor! . . WARNING!

Sep 14  Mideast talks to resume in Egyptian Red Sea resort, Sharm el-Sheikh between Israel and philistines / palestinians.
NO HOPE of peace unless Obama is the antichrist.

The new Netanyahu?
September  3,  2010  
by Caroline Glick
The most distressing aspect of Netanyahu’s enthusiastic participation in a peace process the Israeli public rationally opposes is that it is him doing it.
Despite a multi-million dollar media blitz, Israelis are not buying the US-financed Geneva Initiative’s attempt to convince us that we have a Palestinian partner.
A week after the pro-Palestinian group launched its massive online promotion urging people to join its Facebook page, a mere 634 people had answered the call.

The US-funded agitprop involved ads in which senior Fatah propagandists were featured telling Israelis we can trust them this time around. The reason for its failure was made clear by a public opinion poll taken on Tuesday night for Channel 10. When asked if they believed that Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas is serious about making peace with Israel, two-thirds of Israelis said no. Only 23 percent said he was serious and 17% said they didn’t know.

Moreover, most Israelis have had it with the peace paradigm based on Israeli concessions of land and national rights in exchange for Palestinian terror and political warfare. When asked whether the government should extend the prohibition on Jewish construction in Judea and Samaria beyond its September 26 terminus, 63% said no, it should not. A mere 21% of the public believes the government should respond positively to the US demand that Jews continue to be denied our property right in Judea and Samaria.

In his analysis of the results, Channel 10’s senior political commentator Raviv Drucker said that if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decides to make a deal with the Palestinians, he will have a hard time convincing the public to support him.

Drucker argued that the results may have been influenced by the Palestinian terror attack on Tuesday night, in which four civilians were brutally murdered on their way home from Jerusalem. That is, Drucker implied that the public is driven by its emotions. But what the results actually show is that the public is driven by reason.

When Palestinian terrorists gun down innocent people on the highway simply because they are Jews, the public’s reasoned response is to say that the Palestinians do not want peace. The public’s wholly rational reaction to this act of anti-Jewish butchery is to insist that Jews should not be denied our basic civil and human rights in a dangerous bid to appease murderers.

The poll’s final question had to do with Netanyahu and his intentions at the new round of land-for-peace negotiations in Washington. Slightly more than half of the public believes that Netanyahu is serious in his pursuit of a deal with the Palestinians and a mere 34% believe that he is not serious.

This last response is interesting for two reasons. First it is a strong indication that the public trusts Netanyahu’s word. Since taking office a year and a half ago, Netanyahu has said repeatedly that he supports making a deal with Fatah. And a majority of the public believes him.

The second conclusion suggested by the result is more discouraging. With the public convinced that the Palestinians are not to be trusted and that Israel should stop making concessions, the majority of the public believes that Netanyahu is moving in the opposite direction. Netanyahu’s statements in Washington give us ample reason for concern.

ON WEDNESDAY evening, ahead of a dinner at the White House with US President Barack Obama, Abbas, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak and Jordan’s King Abdullah, Netanyahu made a startling statement.

He said, “I have been making the case for Israel all my life. But I did not come here to win an argument. I came here to forge a peace. I did not come here to play a blame game where even the winners lose. I came here to achieve a peace that will bring benefits to all.”

This statement is worth considering carefully.
Does Netanyahu truly believe that by “making the case for Israel” he and others who speak out in defense of Israel have merely been argumentative?
Does he think that defending Israel’s rights diminishes the prospects for peace and so those who defend Israel are actually harming it?
Does he believe that in calling the Palestinians out for their brutality, barbarism and hatred of Jews and Israel, he and his fellow advocates for Israel have merely been playing a blame game?
Does he think that a peace forged on the basis of ignoring Israel’s case will be a viable peace?

If Netanyahu does believe all of these things – and his statement on Wednesday evening indicates he does – then the public should be very worried. Indeed, if this is what the premier believes, then it is just a matter of time before he begins echoing his predecessor Ariel Sharon and tells us that we are too dim witted to understand him because the world looks different from where he is sitting than from our lowly perches on the ground, in Israel.

AND THIS brings us back to Tuesday evening’s highway massacre. Predictably, the Obama administration led the way in framing the terrorist violence as a bid by Hamas to derail the newest round of negotiations.

For example, after meeting with Netanyahu on Wednesday Obama said, “The tragedy that we saw yesterday where people were gunned down on the street by terrorists who are purposely trying to undermine these talks is an example of what we’re up against.”

The only party that rejected the administration’s rationalization of the attack was Hamas, whose operatives reportedly carried it out. In an interview on Thursday with the London-based Asharq al-Awsat, Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar said that the talks have nothing to do with the attack. As he put it, “The bid to link this operation to the negotiations is completely wrong. When people have the opportunity, the capability and the targets, they act.”

The truth is probably found neither in Zahar’s claim nor in Obama’s assertion. In all likelihood, Hamas was testing the waters. Iran’s Palestinian proxy wanted to know whether the regular rules for peace processes have kicked into gear yet. Those rules – as the families of the hundreds of Israelis murdered by Palestinian terrorists during the peak years of peace processes will attest – involve Israel giving free rein to terrorists to murder Jews during “peace talks.”
