Israel hopes for peace

JERUSALEM — Under mounting American pressure to define his intentions regarding peace efforts, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel said Sunday that he would make a major policy speech next week mapping out the government’s “principles for achieving peace and security.”

The announcement came against the background of rising tensions with the Obama administration, which has demanded that Israel freeze all settlement construction in the West Bank. The Netanyahu government insists that construction within existing settlements should continue.

In another point of contention, Mr. Netanyahu has refused to endorse explicitly the notion of establishing an independent Palestinian state, a cornerstone of American and European policy on the Middle East.

President Obama’s Middle East envoy, George J. Mitchell, is expected in Jerusalem and other parts of the region this week.

On a stopover in Oslo, Mr. Mitchell said Monday that Washington wants “immediate” talks between the Palestinians and Israel to forge a comprehensive peace agreement. Reuters quoted him as saying that the aim of such talks was “a comprehensive peace and normalization of relations” between Israel and its neighbors, which would also serve “the security interests of the United States.”

“The president has told me to exert all efforts to create the circumstance when the parties can begin immediate discussions,” Mr. Mitchell was quoted as telling a Palestinian donors’ conference in the Norwegian capital.

“It’s important that there is a building of institutions and governmental capacity so that at an early time there can be an independent and viable Palestinian state,” he said.

On Sunday, in comments at the start of the weekly cabinet meeting, Mr. Netanyahu said, “We want to achieve peace with the Palestinians and with the countries of the Arab world, while attempting to reach maximum understanding with the United States and our friends around the world.”

His government, led by the conservative Likud Party, was sworn in nine weeks ago. Mr. Netanyahu says he has been reformulating Israeli peace policy. Some Israeli commentators have wondered how Mr. Netanyahu, whose last government fell apart in 1999, seemingly returned to office without a clear agenda.

Ben Caspit, a columnist, wrote Sunday in the newspaper Maariv that Mr. Netanyahu, “who opted to squander his period of grace on meaningless ‘reassessment’ meetings, is now going to have to be particularly creative if he wants to renew trust between the United States and Israel.”

Israeli officials say they expect the Obama administration to respect understandings they say were reached — some written and some oral — with the Bush administration on building within existing settlements.

The Obama administration has bluntly dismissed Israel’s argument. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that “there is no memorialization of any informal and oral agreements” on construction in settlements. “If they did occur, which, of course, people say they did, they did not become part of the official position of the United States government,” she said.

Both clarifying and complicating the issue on Sunday, Dov Weissglas, who was a senior adviser to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon when some of the understandings were reached early in the decade and was his liaison with American officials, said the written understanding on development within the settlements was “part of a host of understandings around the road map.”

The road map, a 2003 peace plan, called on Israel to freeze all settlement activity and on the Palestinians to dismantle terrorist networks. The goal was the creation of a Palestinian state.

“In other words,” Mr. Weissglas told Israel Radio, “whoever does not accept the road map cannot demand rights without taking on the obligations.”

Mr. Netanyahu has said his government will abide by signed agreements, but he has not publicly endorsed the road map. Israeli officials emphasize that the Palestinians and Arab parties, and not only Israel, have obligations to fulfill, a point also made by President Obama on Friday.

In Germany, Mr. Obama said the Palestinians “have to continue to make progress on security in the West Bank” and deal with “corruption and mismanagement” within the Palestinian Authority.

Iran test fires misslie

Iran test-fired a solid-fuel missile capable of reaching Israel or US bases in the Middle East today, drawing rebukes from western governments and forcing the abrupt cancellation of a diplomatic mission by Italy‘s foreign minister.

President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced the launch of the Sajjil-2 surface-to-surface missile in Semnan province, in northern Iran, claiming it landed “precisely on target”. The defence minister, Mostafa Mohammad Najjar, said the missile was “equipped with a new navigation system as well as precise and sophisticated sensors”.

Western officials confirmed the launch and said the Sajjil appeared to be a two-stage solid-fuel missile with a range of about 1,250 miles (2,000km). The Foreign Office said it “underlines profound concerns about Iran’s intentions and sends exactly the wrong signal to the region and the world at a time the international community is trying to engage Iran”.

The incident came two days after Barack Obama warned Iran had until the end of the year to respond to his diplomatic overtures and enter into serious, “good faith” negotiations over its nuclear programme. Iran insists the programme is for energy-generation purposes, but the UN security council has demanded Tehran suspend enrichment of uranium on the grounds that Iran has so far failed to convince the international community that its intentions are peaceful.

The launch led to the cancellation of a two-day visit to Iran by Italy’s Franco Frattini, who was close to boarding a plane to Tehran when he heard that Ahmadinejad insisted on meeting him in Semnan, the site of the launch.

The minister called off the whole trip, fearing Ahmadinejad would use it as a propaganda coup ahead of presidential elections next month.

The president and three challengers were officially approved today to take part in the vote by the electoral watchdog, the Guardian Council, out of 475 hopefuls.

The planned Frattini visit had been the source of considerable tension within Europe. The British and French governments had urged him not to go, arguing that it would help Ahmadinejad electorally and show a lack of western unity.

An earlier version of the Sajjil was tested in November last year.The Sajjil-2 appears to have a slightly longer range than the prototype. Mark Fitzpatrick, an analyst at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, said the development of the Sajjil missile was significant because of the type of fuel it used, rather than its range.

“To be able to build a solid-fuel missile of medium range represents a significant technological breakthrough,” Fitzpatrick said. “It is technically more difficult than a liquid-fuel missile, and militarily more significant because it is not as vulnerable to attack while being fuelled.”

Jew Hater David Duke now living in Austria – owns birdwatching business

Mr Duke, who has previously denied Adolf Hitler used gas chambers in the holocaust, has rented a house by the Zeller lake near the city.

Local Green Party politician Karl Oellinger said Mr Duke roamed the Austrian Alps taking snaps of birds and wildlife and selling them on the internet.

“He’s registered as living in Salzburg and although I can’t check official files I have it on good information he has lived there for four or five years,” he said.

“The Austrian police have known he’s been here all along. Apparently he can live here unchallenged as he travels to other countries to help the far-right movement.”

Mr Duke was recently deported from the neighbouring Czech Republic after promoting one of his books in Prague.

But Government officials have said he is free to stay in Austria as long as he does not break any local laws.

Alexander Marakovits, Interior Minister spokesman, said: “As a US citizen he can, as a tourist, stay three months at a time without a visa. And currently there is no evidence of criminal acts.”

Mr Duke said he lived a quiet life in Austria: “I’m not in Austria for any political activities. I just come to Austria to relax – the mountains are beautiful. The Austrian Alps are just beautiful. There’s beauty all over the world.

“I’m a writer, photographer, a speaker, I do all sorts of things.”

British historian David Irving was jailed in Austria for almost a year for “glorifying and identifying with the German Nazi Party” under the Verbotsgesetz law in 2006.

KKK pretends they like people – lol

There appears to be a growing number of racist incidents against blacks that civil rights groups in Dallas are attributing to white supremacist groups. We’ve heard reports of a white supremacist group setting up an office or residence in South Dallas, of all places. Yesterday, a group gathered at the Old Red Courthouse to draw attention to the distribution of Ku Klux Klan recruitment fliers being distributed in Forney and racial and sexual graffiti being placed on a church bus in Bedford.

Well, Forrest Lee, imperial klazik and spokesman for the regional Klan, wants to make it clear that his group is no longer the bunch of supremacist thugs who engaged in midnight lynchings, cross-burnings, kidnappings and other terrorist activities across the South.

“We would never do anything like that,” he said of the incident in Bedford. “We’re not the Klan of the ’60s and ’70s. We do not practice hate.”
I’m amazed this group still exists legally, with its own spokesman and phone number and everything. It’s as if this nation has a double standard on terrorism. If the terrorist group conducted its activities against an oppressed racial minority, then it’s all right. But if it conducts its activities against establishment people in business suits in big buildings, that’s bad.

I wonder if, in a few years, people will be able to claim membership in al-Qaeda and proclaim, “Hey, we’re not the al-Qaeda of the 1990s and 2000s. We don’t practice beheadings and kidnappings and mass murders anymore. We do not practice hate.”

Right.

Will Neo-nazis start killing?  7. 5. 2009
The extreme right is recruiting for killers on the internet. The first secret squad is already preparing itself in the forests. Extremists in the Czech Repubic want to unleash a partisan war.

Blood, destruction and dead bodies. Right wing radicals are not hiding their intentions for mass murder of anti-fascists, Roma and Jews. That intention is serious. The first secret command squadron is already training in a secluded forest. The police has its hands tied for now.

Two young men with scarves over their eyes kneel before a Nazi flag. Behind them stand two men in masks with knives in thier hands. That’s how the shocking video starts on whitejustice.com, where Czech neo-nazis published this. That which plays further on the video is beyond normal human comprehension. On command they approach those on their knees and start to cut off their heads. The horrendous act takes several minutes to complete.

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Police say the suspect in a shooting that killed a Wesleyan University student may be targeting the university and the Jewish community.

Officials say they they’ve launched a nationwide manhunt for 29-year-old Stephen Morgan. They don’t know if he’s still in the Middletown area, and say he has past connections to New York, Colorado and Massachusetts.

Morgan is sought in connection with Wednesday’s shooting of Johanna Justin-Jinich in the bookstore where she worked. Middletown Police Chief Lynn Baldoni says investigators uncovered a connection between Justin-Jinich and Morgan, and her shooting was not a random act.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP’s earlier story is below.

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. (AP) — Officials at Wesleyan University are instructing students, faculty and staff to stay home while the suspect in a fatal shooting on campus is on the loose.

The Middletown, Conn., university posted the warning Thursday morning on its Web site.

Police say a disguised gunman fatally shot Johanna Justin-Jinich, of Timnath, Colo., on Wednesday afternoon in a bookstore where she worked.

Police have identified the suspect as 29-year-old Stephen Morgan. A Wesleyan spokesman says Morgan has no known connection to the university.

Authorities have released a surveillance photo taken inside the bookstore of a thin, bearded man they believe is Morgan. They describe him as armed and dangerous.

Swine – God was right, very unclean to eat

Posted in Bible, Christianity, cults, Israel, Israeli, Jewish History, News, Old Testament, Religion, The Torah, Uncategorized, World News with tags , , , on April 30, 2009 by Michael Burks

With Swine flu spreading and taking it’s first American life; God was right, Swine is unclean. I myself trust the God of Israel and I always take his advice. He said swine was unclean and well, I agree with Him 100%.

This doesn’t shock me. Millions of us Gentiles disobey God daily and eat unclean animals. Churches even lead the way by misquoting what Paul actually taught and by lying about what Christ taught. We as people deserve this. When you mock God, see what happens?

     

  • When wild inhabited the woods.
    Psalms 80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

     

  • Unclean and not to be eaten.
    Leviticus 11:7-8 And the swine, though he divide the hoof, and be clovenfooted, yet he cheweth not the cud; he is unclean to you. Of their flesh shall ye not eat, and their carcase shall ye not touch; they are unclean to you.

     

  • DESCRIBED AS
       

    • Fierce and ungenerous.
      Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

       

    • Filthy in its habits.
      2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

       

    • Destructive to agriculture.
      Psalms 80:13 The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

     

  • Fed upon husks.
    Luke 15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.

     

  • Sacrificing of, and abomination.
    Isaiah 66:3 He that killeth an ox is as if he slew a man; he that sacrificeth a lamb, as if he cut off a dog’s neck; he that offereth an oblation, as if he offered swine’s blood; he that burneth incense, as if he blessed an idol. Yea, they have chosen their own ways, and their soul delighteth in their abominations.

     

  • Kept in large herds.
    Matthew 8:30 And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine feeding.

     

  • Herding of, considered as the greatest degradation to a Jew.
    Luke 15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

     

  • The Gergesenes punished for having.
    Matthew 8:31-32 So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.

     

  • The ungodly Jews condemned for eating.
    Isaiah 65:4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;
    Isaiah 66:17 They that sanctify themselves, and purify themselves in the gardens behind one tree in the midst, eating swine’s flesh, and the abomination, and the mouse, shall be consumed together, saith the LORD.

     

  • ILLUSTRATIVE OF
       

    • The wicked.
      Matthew 7:6 Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

       

    • Hypocrites.
      2 Peter 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.
