And they journeyed from Bethel; and there was but a little way to come to Ephrath: and Rachel travailed, and she had hard labour. And it came to pass, when she was in hard labour, that the midwife said unto her, Fear not; thou shalt have this son also. And it came to pass, as her soul was in departing, (for she died) that she called his name Benoni: but his father called him Benjamin. And Rachel died, and was buried in the way to Ephrath, which is Bethlehem. And Jacob set a pillar upon her grave: that is the pillar of Rachel’s grave unto this day…Genesis 35:16-21 (King James Version)
On 10 July 2010, Mahmoud Abbas, Palestinian Authority Chairman, eulogized Mohammed Oudeh, better known as Abu Dauod, the mastermind of the massacre who had just died. Said Abbas, “He is missed. He was one of the leading figures of Fatah and spent his life in resistance and sincere work as well as physical sacrifice for his people’s just causes”. Abbas’ eulogy and praise for the planner of the murders came less than a month after he told American Jewish leaders in Washington that he will work to stop incitement of violence against Jews. Palestinian Media Watch posts the following: During a visit to Bethlehem this week, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas held up a stone model of the map of “Palestine” that erases Israel. [Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Oct. 26, 2010. This is the partner Israel is asked to enter into a peace agreement with!

Abu Daoud, was born in East Jerusalem, and openly acknowledged his role in the Olympic attack, both in his memoir, Palestine: From Jerusalem to Munich, published in Paris, and in an interview with the Arab TV network al-Jazeera. According to Dauod, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas provided the funds for the Munich Massacre. Abu Daoud would not reveal where he resided–saying only that he lived with his wife on a pension provided by the PA.
One can only pray that by 2012 the Olympic committee and the people of the UK will see fit to remember those athletes who came with joy and high hopes to compete in “friendly” non-political games and lost their lives. The minute of silence would serve as a reminder that politics and the Olympic Games should never be mixed.

Are we fighting a war on terror or aren’t we?
Was it, or was it not started by Islamic people who brought it to our shores in July 2002, and in New York on September 11, 2001–and have continually threatened to do so since?
And I’m supposed to care that a few Taliban were claiming to be tortured by a justice system of the nation they come from and are fighting against in a brutal insurgency. I’ll start caring when Osama bin Laden turns himself in and repents for incinerating all those innocent people on 9/11 and 7/7.
I’ll care when the British media stops pretending that their freedom of speech on stories is more important than the lives of the soldiers on the ground or their families waiting at home to hear about them when something happens.

The PA charter still calls for the complete and utter destruction of Israel. As for the Oslo agreements? NOT ONE has been complied with by the Palestinians. Not a single one has been kept.
When the highly publicized “Humanitarian Flotilla for Gaza” attempted to break through to Gaza they refused a simple request made by Mr. Shalit to accept a letter to be delivered to his son. If they were really “Humanitarians” as they claim, Why would they Refuse this “humanitarian” request?
Meanwhile, Hamas and PA areas have Graffiti picturing the suffering boy as an aged man; posted this video showing the suffering of the father trying to free his son–with the end showing a coffin being unloaded in front of Mr. Shalit. Even more insidious is another video clip giving the impression of Gilad’s Execution. They use these emotional ploys for their own evil designs. They are asking for the release of thousands of murderous terrorists to an area where they would be free to kill again. What country would accept such terms?
Regardless of whether one loves or hates Israel, what is being done to Gilad is cruel and inhuman. And yet, money and supplies go into Gaza daily, people all over the world demonize Israel and hold up the flags of Hamas and the PA–the new “cause”.
