The news is ablaze with the confrontations between so called “Palestinian Arabs” and the IDF. But sometimes things are not as they seem. Apparently, a large number of these people are not Palestinians at all, but impoverished Syrian farmers from the north of the country.
The regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad has offered to pay them for attacking Israel’s border! According to the Reform party, the farmers, who are suffering from a severe drought, make less than the average Syrian salary of $200 a month. The Syrian regime has offered these poor people $1,000 to travel to the border at the Golan Heights and challenge the IDF. In addition, if they are killed another $25,000 will be paid to their families.
It is said that Assad is trying to divert world attention away from his own brutality and massacres of unarmed Syrian civilians. As in every Arab country, the call to “blame the Jews” or “take back Israel” works wonders as a distraction from the brutal actions of despotic regimes.
More clashes are expected as desperate people are led like lambs to a slaughter–in the name of jihad of course. Even though the IDF is instructed to use restraint, eventually they will have to use force as these wildly incited crowds rush for the chance to kill a Jew or die as a martyr. Hate is a powerful force, and in the Arab world nothing is stronger than hate for the Jews, although hate for all things western or democratic rates near the top of the list.
Arutz 7 posted an article from Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Joel Brinkley, who claims that Assad is the World’s Most Dangerous Man. He sells missiles to Hizbullah, the terrorist group in southern Lebanon that is the avowed enemy of Israel and the United States.Khaled Mashaal, the Hamas leader, actually lives in Damascus and does his murderous business openly from a storefront.
*Note*If you don’t believe that Hamas is a murderous gang of terrorists, pleasefollow this linkandRead Their Charter–Carefully.This is what the flotillas, and so called peace activists support.
American intelligence shows that Syria has a vast store of chemical weapons. Assad had pursued a secret nuclear-weapons development program until Israel bombed it in 2007. More recent intelligence suggests that he is back at it, though this time the program is better hidden. Brinkley also pointed out that the day after President Obama sent a new ambassador to Damascus, Assad hosted a state visit by Ahmadinejad. The timing was no accident.
Brinkley has added his name to countless analysts who have questioned why President Obama supported the defeat of American ally Hosni Mubarak yet still tries to work with Assad, who openly works against the USA
The question is, how long will the world continue with this farce? How long will people scream and protest about the only democratic country in the middle east? How long will they join the oppressors in attacks against the only country in the middle east where Arabs have rights? One has to wonder…

Honest Reporting investigates the issue of the Media Myth of Two Cities of Jerusalem, including interviews with Jewish refugees from 1948.
How the media report on Jerusalem has a tremendous impact on public policy. The Palestinian Authority is claiming that Jerusalem–including the Old City–will be “restored” to Arab control as capital of their new state.
The media stubbornly clings to the notion that there are two separate cities of Jerusalem, East and West, and that the eastern half, including the Western Wall in the Old City, lacks Jewish legitimacy. This is a direct lie put forth by the Arab world in its attempt to de-legitimize Israel and their claim to the land.
The true nakba (catastrophe) is the continued failure of the “Palestinian” Arab community to accept Israel’s existence as a Jewish state, and to make peace.
The term “Jewish Nakba” refers to the persecution and expulsion of Jews from Arab countries in the years and decades following the creation of the State of Israel. The Jewish Nakba was a long line of slaughters, of pogroms, of property confiscation and of deportations against Jews in Islamic countries.
This chapter of history has been left in the shadows~downplayed~ignored.
The Arab League rejection of the 1947 Partition Plan and its resulting attack and war against the new born state of Israel was responsible not only for the estimated 500,000 Arab refugees, but also for the 1,000,000 (1 Million) Jewish refugees who were driven out of Arab countries after all of their property and assets were taken.
We are inundated with the plight of the Palestinian refugees, yet little to nothing is said about the Jews who fled from Arab states. Many of their communities dated back 2,500 years. Throughout 1947 and 1948 these Jews were persecuted~Their property and belongings were confiscated~There were anti-Jewish riots in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Iraq–In Iraq, Zionism was made a capital crime!
Approximately 600,000 Jews found their way to the State of Israel. They were destitute, but they were absorbed into the society and are an integral part of the state.
The truth is that an exchange of populations took place between Arab and Jewish refugees, but, where the Jewish refugees from Arab countries became full Israeli citizens, the Arab refugees who fled their homes (at the instructions of their leaders), have remained “refugees” to this day, unaided by the Arab countries hosting them. Israel closed its “refugee camps” giving citizenship to the Arabs within.
Little is heard about the Jewish refugees because they did not remain refugees–they became full, functioning, contributing members of society.
You can learn more about their story at the excellent Blog, Point of No Return. Do go there and read the stories, watch the videos, look at the pictures–then ask yourself these questions:
~ Why, after 63 years does the UN still support 5 Million“Arab Refugees” when thier own neighboring Arab countries will not even allow them the most basic of rights?, and
~ Why, when Israel already absorbed Jewish and Arab refugees does the world demand they turn their tiny slip of land over to those who declare openly that their goal is to destroy Israel?
Today, Arutz 7 posted this video from the scene of the terror attack in Tel Aviv–and Yes–it was a terror attack. Listen to the interviews–this is not someone who was tired, or not a very good driver. Time to call it what it is…
This short film from Palestine Media Watch (PMW), begins with the words: “Palestine–one day we will return to our home and bask in the warmth of our hopes”[the line is from a song by Lebanese singer Fairouz, about longing for Palestine]
What follows are scenes of various places, and their names: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv [labeled Tel Al-Rabi’a], Haifa, the Dead Sea, the Negev, the Galilee, Caesarea, Masada [labeled Jericho mountains], and Acre. It is common for the PA to give Arabic names to Israeli cities.
At the end the following appears: “For your sake, Palestine, the youth have been demonstrating for 25 days to end the [Fatah-Hamas] rift”…[PA TV (Fatah), April 11, 2011]
The Palestinian Authority is Not a Peace Partner. In English they cry Peace, Peace, but in Arabic they stir the pot insuring that the goal to eliminate Israel is always at the forefront. Now they want over 5 billion dollars and the UN to hand over a large chunk of Israel to them. Shame on anyone who supports this genocidal incentive.
The woman, Iman al-Obeidi (shown in the picture to the left), made headlines when she went to a Tripoli hotel used by Western journalists to tell them about the alleged rape attack by four men. She was bundled away by government minders despite efforts by journalists to protect her.
Now, the four “alleged rapists” have filed a defamation case against her because she went to the media and “exposed their names and what they had done”.
Libyas main government spokesman said that the woman had not come up with anything substantial.
The four men now claim their “honor has been tainted”—a very grave offense in Islamic Law.
The woman’s parents say their daughter is being held hostage, and that she was “not a prostitute” as the government thugs claimed.
All you western women out there who carry signs for Islam and Sharia Law need to wake up and see how Muslim men and Islamic Law treat women–all women. Go HERE and watch the video and listen to what Wafa Sultan says about women being raped and Sharia Law.
