Hoopster, the Crotch Bomber is a Terrorist, not a Suspect. You, allegedly, are suspected of being President of the USA. Put on a tie.



Yesterday the hoopster, formally super kool organizing man, still talking like a civil rights lawyer, looked like a diner who arrived at a restaurant not knowing the dress code and forced by the maitre d' to put on a borrowed jacket.

Alleged suspect? Fret not, Janet Napolitano and Eric Holder are on the job.

Obama has not been resting till he got the news, basketball, golf and surfing aside, Oh and one other little thing of using his security convoy, sirens and escorts blazing, raising to the beach to see to a golfing buddies' kid that got bruised on her surf board. (Now that is using all the resources of his office.)

The "suspect" is now in custody and the hoopster could not bring himself to call him a terrorist. Not once.

Obama did remind us that he has only been on the job for eight months. He forgot to mention that he came to the job with not one day's worth of relevant experience.

Want to know one other thing Obama did Yesterday?

Obama lifts veil of secrecy on some documents
Boston.com Posted by Foon Rhee, deputy national political editor December 29, 2009 06:50 PM

President Obama late today announced he had signed an executive order to expand access to classified government documents.

"I expect that the order will produce measurable progress towards greater openness and transparency in the government’s classification and declassification programs while protecting the government’s legitimate interests," Obama said in a statement.

The order expands public access to declassified records and limits the ability of government officials to classify information "Top Secret" or "Confidential." The full order is below.

The Justice Department on Sept. 23 announced steps to make it more difficult for the government to claim it must withhold state secrets to protect national security.

  2. No, the terrorist is a suspect, if Mr Obama referred to him in any other way, the chances of his walking away from the criminal proceedings would increase.

    Such is the US way of delivering justice. Does, on occasion, suck.

    I did notice that our man of 'misdirection' failed to refute the historical facts in my posts, last thread, deciding instead to spew forth his vile bile of empty accusations.

    Typical of his past performances.

  6. That course was considered, and rejected, whit.

    Mr Bush made a half-hearted attempt at creating those Military Tribunals, but even given the GOP majorities in the House and Senate was unable to get the Congress to pass the enabling legislation.

    Now, with the Obamamerica firmly in control of both the Executive and Legislative branches of the Federal government such a change in criminal proceedings is even less likely to occur.

    We are where we are, and that's how justice it is going to be delivered.

  7. We need an open season on spiritual advisors. Head shots only please.

    Anwar al-Awlaki, dodged the bullet on a recent predator head shot in Yemen. So much for that technology as being the end all of remote response.


    Of course we have the usual nonsense coming from our rulers and masters that more technology is needed in airports. The answer now is body scanners. Right.

    You want some real security? You could put half the posters on this blog, or similar minded people, each at a different airport security gate at any airport and screen out 90% of those waiting in line. Let the remaining 10% go through the gauntlet.

    But then we are not as interested in security as we are diversity and political correctness.

  8. It was not det-cord, allen, that the terrorist suspect had strapped to his leg. In fact it was no type of military explosive, at all.

    The quantity of it, proving the suspects ineptitude.

    It was an attempted political/propaganda attack, not a military one. The goal of which, the same as Osama had at 9-11-01, to obtain an overt military and political reaction from the US.

    His attack on 9-11-01 was extraordinarily successful, in that regard.

    If a bungled attempt at suicide could bring forth the religious discrimination advocated by many, here at the EB, Osama and Doc Z would have won, again.

  12. Yes, it would be, Deuce.

    It would exemplify our failure in Iraq.

    And Afpakistan

    Where we are dependent upon the Islamic populations for our continued success.

    As candidate Obama said, in November of 2007, there are 45,000 or so terrorists that needed to die. That he has failed to pursue a policy that would deliver on that strategic need, disappointing. And a lot more significant than his not wearing a tie.

    But while there is a need to take on those 45,000 or so terrorists, there is no advantage in declaring "war" on the whole of Islam.

    No advantage gained by discriminating against our best allies, in the War on Terror.

  26. DR: The death of the child, while tragic, is not significant, militarily.

    Desert Rat is trying to pull a fast one here, thinking that we, veterans of the EB and the BC, are not aware of the nature of asymmetric warfare.

    James Doolittle's April 1942 raid on Tokyo was not militarily significant on a tactical basis, but on a strategic basis it was crucial. The sacred Emperor's holy precincts had been bombed. The Japanese military abandoned plans to consolidate their newly-acquired empire in the south and threw everything they had at Midway, from which they would have later invaded Hawaii and completely eliminated the US as a serious naval threat...because the Japanese understood a thing which Rat does not. A state cannot make a valid claim to statehood if it cannot protect itself from all attack.

    For that matter, 9-11 wasn't "militarily significant" because no carriers or barracks were hit. But it was symbolic: America was no longer impregnable.

    In the Negev, Hamas firing rockets on Israel are not tactically significant but they are a blow at the basic function of any state, which is to protect its citizens from all harm.

    Apparently there is a level of Jew-murder that is acceptable to Rat, so long as it does not seriously impair the IDF.

  28. How COOL is this?

    Report: 77% of Gaza women face violence

    The study, by the Gaza-based Palestinian Women's Information and Media Center, found that violence against women in Gaza has increased since Hamas took over the Gaza Strip in the June 2007 coup and Israel subsequently imposed restrictions on the coastal enclave.

    A quarter of the women said they do not feel safe in their own homes because of violence and more than a third said they were unable to fight back as they had more urgent priorities to deal with.

    67% of the women surveyed said they had encountered verbal violence, 71% mental violence, 52% physical violence and more than 14% sexual violence.

    "I think the levels [of violence] are higher than they were in the Gaza Strip in previous years and compared to other countries, the rates are certainly higher," Huda Hamouda, Director of the PWIC told The Media Line. "It's hard to imagine a family living in dignity when seven family members are living on less than three dollars a day."

    "Many say they suffer from disrespect and deprecation," Hamouda said. "There's also domestic violence, which is committed by relatives such as the father, the brother or the husband."

    Women are exposed to hardships in every sphere be it financial, social, political or lack of security, she said.

    "There's widespread unemployment and the number of female workers has gone down," Hamouda explained. "It was 14.5% in 2006 and now it's less than 10%."

    According to the report almost two thirds of the women who were interviewed were the breadwinners in their families and about the same number were dependent on handouts from international aid organizations.

    Some 31% of the married women were either divorced or said their husbands were threatening to divorce them because of the financial situation.

    The women's rights advocate said the Hamas government is trying to impose a certain ideology, which includes forcing women to wear the hijab, religious head covering, implying that this has eroded the standing of Gazan women.

    "They're imposing their directives and they're encountering opposition from certain groups, human-rights organizations and unions," Hamouda said. "It's understood that in society there is no pluralism or freedom of thought. It's one side imposing its understandings on those under its control."

    Last summer the chief justice prompted a public outcry when he decreed that female lawyers must wear the hijab in court. Recently the Hamas religious police have reprimanded women for dressing in what they considered to be immodest clothing and instructed beach goers to cover up.

    Palestinian women's rights activists have told The Media Line that domestic violence is not tackled adequately by the Palestinian police, who often turn a blind eye to such complaints.

    There are few shelters for battered women in the Palestinian territories.

    Hamouda said laws to combat violence against women were lax and contributed to a culture of impunity for perpetrators, especially in relation to honor killings.

    Honor killings are cases in which women accused of bringing dishonor to the family are killed by relatives. Killings often involve women suspected of fraternizing with men who are not their husbands or relatives.

    Dolittle's 30 seconds over Tokyo was a propaganda raid, pure and simple. That the propaganda had a strategic effect, not disputed.

    In that military action is just an extension of politics, there is some collateral advantage to a good propaganda campaign, but even the best propaganda cannot defeat military significance on the field.

    As I have been saying, here, for quite a while. The solution is not military, but cultural.

    The answer is in the IBEC/Walmart model, as now applied in Mexico and China.

  34. "Water is energy. If you give me the energy I will give you water." Eli Ronen, chairman of Mekorot
    It is almost mind-boggling that Israel, a country with such a dearth of fresh water resources, has become a leader in water technologies. That is, until you learn about Mekorot.

    Most of Israel's $1.4 billion in water tech exports last year wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for the government-owned water carrier and water tech company, chairman Eli Ronen tells ISRAEL21c. Mekorot transformed Israel into a global water leader by making water research and policy a national priority decades ago.

    Now Mekorot's expertise in water management, specifically in desalinating water, is on its way to south California. Ronen confirms that Mekorot has signed an MOU with Water Solutions Technologies (WST) of Fresno, California.

    The company's activities in California will extend to water-poor areas such as Fresno in the San Joaquin Valley and other regions like it. The contract between Mekorot and WST was signed at the Fresno Convention and Entertainment Center where Ronen recently lectured to about 800 people about Israel's water solutions.

    Fresno is America's number one agricultural producer and new solutions for the large quantities of water needed to sustain agriculture there are badly needed. Poor water allocations for farmers have forced them to leave thousands of acres to lie fallow and many farmers are in a holding pattern.

    "California suffers from the same problems that Israel suffers from, especially in its southern parts and it needs to overcome these difficulties," says Ronen. "We hope to be the one who can help."

  35. DR: 1.8% population growth exemplifies societal and cultural failure. Demographic defeat.

    Population replacement rate varies by country based on mortality. For the US birth rates are around 2.1% annually, which is treading water, but we have immigration. Globally the replacement rate is 2.33%.

    Afghanistan has a 6.58% birth rate, but they have a high mortality rate. Japan has a 1.22% birth rate but a low mortality rate. What kills a nation is a case like Russia, which has both a 1.4% birth rate and Afghanistan-level mortality rates.

    Israel fares well, with a 2.75% birth rate and a mortality rate only 5/8 that of the United States.

    Al-Qaeda under fire

    The Yemeni army moved against Al-Qaeda activities in the country last week in three simultaneous operations, reports Nasser Arrabyee

    Southern Yemenis pile their weaponry onto a truck during a demonstration against air raids which killed 23 children and 17 women

    Al-Qaeda in Yemen has declared that it will strike back against the US and the Yemeni government after the government killed and arrested dozens of its operatives in three simultaneous operations in different places on 17 December.

    The operations, which targeted an Al-Qaeda training camp in the south and a group of eight would-be suicide bombers in the north, have regional and international support.

    Nevertheless, they have angered many local people because women and children were also killed in the operations, which targeted the Al-Qaeda training camp in Al-Majalah, a mountainous and remote area in the Abyan province in the south of the country where Al-Qaeda has been enhancing its presence.

    In a tribal gathering held on Monday in Al-Majalah, tribesmen from the provinces of Abyan and Shabwa demanded an investigation into what they called a massacre of civilians from the tribes of Al-Haidarah and Al-Ambor.

    Al-Qaeda operatives were present at the gathering, with one defiant speaker promising the tribesmen that victory against America would come very soon. He vowed to strike the US and its agents in retaliation for people killed in Thursday's raids.

    "The war in Yemen is between Al-Qaeda and the US and not between Al-Qaeda and the Yemeni army," said the man, who was unmasked with a bodyguard standing beside him.

    Speaking to thousands of tribesmen, he said that "you should understand that we do not want to fight Yemeni soldiers. There is no problem between us and the soldiers. The problem is between us and America, but victory is coming soon."

    Sources identified the man as Mohamed Saleh Al-Awlaki from Shabwah, a relative of Fahd Al-Kusaa, who was involved in the bombing of the USS Cole in 2000.

    Observers say it would have been almost impossible for the Yemeni army to strike the training camp without casualties among women and children, who were used as human shields by the Al-Qaeda operatives.

    "Al-Qaeda is not only fighters. It's always family, organisation, mosque and training camp, so it is almost impossible to discriminate," said Ahmed Al-Sufi of the Democracy Development Institute, an NGO based in Sanaa.

    Al-Qaeda leader Mohamed Saleh Al-Kazimi, who was killed in the operation along with four family members, was living among the Al-Ambor tribe, according to local sources.

    The sources said that non-Yemeni Al-Qaeda fighters and Yemenis from outside Abyan had formed a group in Al-Majalah under the leadership of Al-Kazimi, the training camp being only tens of metres from the village where his relatives and comrades from Al-Qaeda lived.

    Some local residents in Al-Majalah, where government authority is almost absent, denied that there was an Al-Qaeda training camp in the area, though they did not deny the presence of Al-Qaeda itself.

    "There is no training camp here. Al-Qaeda is working in Sanaa and Aden and everywhere, so why is the army striking here," asked Mukbel Mohamed Ali Al-Ambori in a telephone interview.

    "Mohamed Saleh Al-Kazimi has the right to live with his family and relatives in Al-Ambor, and if he is a member of Al-Qaeda then he should have been punished alone. But 45 women and children and more than 1,000 animals were killed during the strike, all of them coming from the Bedouins of Haidarah and Al-Ambor," he said.

    Despite such criticism, the strikes against Al-Qaeda are viewed by some analysts as the beginning of the end of training activities in the country.

    "The strike was a strategic way of rescuing Yemen from becoming a safe haven for Al-Qaeda," said Al-Sufi, who expected strong retaliation from Al-Qaeda as a result.

    ReplyDelete
  38. "The government should stand ready to confront possible retaliation from Al-Qaeda," he said. "If Al-Qaeda is not dismantled and cleared from Abyan, Shabwa, Mareb and Al-Jawf, a disaster for the world, and not only for Yemen, will ensue," he warned.

    "Al-Qaeda is a tool to internationalise conflicts inside countries, so it must be uprooted from any country that seeks security and stability."

    However, Abdel-Ilah Haidar Shaya, an expert in terrorism, played down Thursday's operations, saying that they would increase recruitment to Al-Qaeda.

    "The operations were against civilians, which means Al-Qaeda will gain by recruiting a lot of angry people," he said.

    While the government says that 34 Al-Qaeda operatives were killed and 30 others arrested in the three simultaneous operations in Sanaa, Arhab and Abyan, local residents in Al-Majalah say 45 civilians were killed, most of them women and children.

    Autopsies have confirmed that at least 12 of those killed were wanted by the authorities as suspected Al-Qaeda operatives. Mohamed Saleh Al-Kazimi, Mukbel Abdullah Awadh Sheikh, Ahmed Abdullah Awadh, Methak Al-Jalad and Abdullah Awadh Sheikh were all confirmed dead in the Al-Majalah area, according to an official statement.

    Four others were killed in the operation in Arhab, east of Sanaa, where eight would-be suicide bombers had been planning to target Yemeni and Western interests. Another four were arrested.

    Two Saudi nationals, Ibrahim Al-Najdi and Mohamed Rajeh Al-Tharan, both wanted as suspected Al-Qaeda operatives, were also found among the dead. Five other foreigners of unknown identity were also found.

    Four injured men, all suspected Al-Qaeda operatives, Abdullah Salem Ali, Abdel-Rahman Mohamed Kaed, Haidarh Salem, Alia Fatah Al-Amri and Mohamed Ali Salem were later arrested in a hospital where they were having treatment.

    Inside the Yemeni capital itself, more than 29 suspected Al-Qaeda members were arrested on the same day of the operations. The 29 men, aged in their 20s, were accused of planning to assist the eight would-be suicide bombers in Arhab to implement attacks against Yemeni and Western targets.

    The arrests took place without clashes and came about as a result of accurate information about the men. The leader of Al-Qaeda in the Arhab area, Aref Mujali, a brother of Hezam Mujali, was also arrested in the operation.

    Aref and Hezam Mujali are the sons of Yehia Mujali, an Al-Qaeda operative who was killed in clashes with security forces in the Al-Rawdha area of Sanaa in 2003.

    A leading member of Al-Qaeda, Fawaz Al-Rabyee, was married to the daughter of Mujali before he was also killed in an operation in the outskirts of Sanaa in 2006

  40. The presence of Iran in Yemen has helped it to have a real dominance in Iraq, Lebanon and Afghanistan. “
    Filed under: Diplomacy, Donors, UN, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Saudi Arabia — by Jane Novak at 7:23 pm on Sunday, January 4, 2009
    That’s a good point and this is an interesting analysis on Yemen’s external affairs from the Yemen Post, if only because it says some different things. The relationship between Iran, Yemen and the war in Iraq is an important point. (There’s no mention of Syria, Iran’s proxy state but if you take a good look at Yemen and Syria, you get a sense of things.) Yemen is the playground between Saudi Arabia and Libya, and the Sa’ada War in some ways reflects that.

  53. On September 23, 1928, on the evening of Yom Kippur, the Jews of Jerusalem placed a removable screen at the Western Wall to separate the male and female worshippers.

    This was not new; they had done this in years and decades past. But this year, the Arabs decided that such a partition was an unacceptable structure, symbolizing Jewish attachment to Jerusalem, and they told the British authorities to take it down or risk mass riots.

    While the elderly Jews at the Wall pleaded to at least allow the screen to stay until the fast was over, the British took the Arab side. Ten armed policemen with steel helmets came on Yom Kippur morning and destroyed the screen, while Arabs chanted "Death to the Jewish dogs!"

    The British felt that the screen was a provocation to the Arabs and it was easier to cave to Arab demands than to risk riots.

    Of course, it emboldened the Arabs to riot anyway, as they did in 1929, killing some 135 Jews.
    After the 1929 Arab riots, the British caved again, forbidding Jews from bringing chairs and Torahs to the Wall and also from blowing the Shofar on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur to placate the angry Arabs and avoid new "disturbances."

    The entire British policy during the Mandate period can be characterized that way. The British agreed to limit Jewish land purchases and to limit Jewish immigration in the face of Arab threats.

    All of this was "legal." Jews who violated these rules - by immigrating to Palestine, by blowing the shofar on Yom Kippur - were acting "illegally."

    The Arabs, of course, weren't basing their objections on legal issues. They simply hated the Jews and feared their increasing power. The British were willing accomplices because they could be counted on to cave to Arab pressure. After the fact, they could justify their actions by saying that they were simply enforcing the rule of law.

    The appeasement policy didn't work. The Arab uprising in the 1930s was as much against the British as it was against the Jews, and it took that long for the British to finally realize that their appeasement in the previous decade only encouraged more violence.

    But it was too late. The net result of this legal, immoral British policy was that millions of Jews who could have been saved from the Holocaust by fleeing Europe to Palestine were murdered instead.

  60. As WiO has pointed out, we're dealing with 6th century tribalist mentalities. One article quoted a Yemeni as saying that the al-Qaeda member should have been targeted instead of a whole family. That's probably true, but irrelevant given the need for family or tribal retribution.

    What should be obvious by now, is that the Islamists are very adept at manipulating their young men into jihad "against those who are waging war on Islam."

    The solution is to stamp out the current malignancy and send the cancer back into remission. Unfortunately, we are ill prepared and unwilling to administer the necessary "chemo." At this point, I'm not sure that we even know what the proper course of action is.

    What we do know is that these so-called "non-state" actors do not play by the rules of the Geneva convention. We also know that the Islamic Republics play both sides, aiding the Islamists on one hand and denying any responsibility on the other. We do know that we can not trust them. Yet, we continue to tie one hand behind our backs.

    There is a learning curve here but how long and steep it is, we do not know.

  64. The body of a 46-year-old former Gaza resident believed to have once worked with Israeli security services was found in a forest in the South on Wednesday.

    Police said signs of injury were identified on the body, and have launched a murder investigation.

    The homicide victim has been named as Jamal Shada, a Palestinian father of four who resided in Sderot for eight years with his wife.

    Searches were launched earlier on Wednesday after Shada's wife reported him missing.

    The murder investigation is being led by the Lachish police sub-district's Central Unit, under the command of Dep.-Cmdr. David Bawani.

    Police have obtained a court-imposed media ban, prohibiting publication of further details on the case.

    "We are looking at every possible direction," a police source said.

  68. Somali arrested at airport with chemicals, syringe

    While it seems to be the case that the Nigerian bomber did not use det-cord, the chemical he carried aboard the plane, PETN, forms the core of det-cord.

    But not to worry - no harm, no foul, according to the DR ROE. Additionally, the PETN was not militarily significant.

    ReplyDelete
  69. It was not det-cord, allen, that the terrorist suspect had strapped to his leg.

    ---------

    Detonating cord (also called detonation cord, detacord, det. cord, detcord, primer cord or sun cord) is a thin, flexible tube with an explosive core. It is a high-speed fuse which explodes, rather than burns, and is suitable for detonating high explosives, usually pentaerythritol tetranitrate (PETN, Pentrite).

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detonating_cord


    ----

    Thank you, rat, for enforcing accuracy in commentary.

    I'd also said a quarter to half pound of det cord, not being sure of the bulk density of the product. Maybe you'd enlighten us on exactly where the breakpoint is between an insignificant v significant amount of very high explosive ignited in an airliner's passenger cabin.

    I think I also said he had it tucked into his jock strap. You can probably correct me on that point, too, since you state it was strapped to his leg.

  84. Churchill had mused about turning over the troublesome mandate to some other authority; he now simply dropped the subject.

    His defeat in the July 1945 election brought to power the Labour Party, whose ministers
    had been strong advocates of a Jewish state in Palestine while in the coalition cabinet during the war, but who now quickly adopted the opposite policy once in charge
    themselves.

    But that is another story. When Churchill returned to office in 1951 the whole Palestine issue had been transformed by the developments of the intervening years.

    The hopes and plans of Hitler and Mussolini were quite literally crushed by the Allies, whose victory saved not only the Jews of Palestine but of the balance of the
    whole world from the fate the Germans had intended to visit upon them.

    The French colonial empire in the Middle East that de Gaulle had hoped to reestablish has vanished, and Stalin’s Soviet Union is no more.

    As Britain’s empire dissolved in the postwar years, the United Kingdom in effect abdicated its mandatory authority to the United Nations.

    The state of Israel that emerged out of the Palestine mandate is not
    quite the one that Roosevelt and Churchill had hoped for during World War II, but one might say that it bears a certain resemblance.

    SoCal is a bubble. Starting sometime in around 1999 I started meeting the prototype SoCal female sociopath. They are artsy-fartsy, new age, bi if not closet hetero and they will withhold friendship and sex if they find out if you are a conservative. My best friend of 12 years girlfriend found out that I am a conservative and forbids him to hang out with me. He is un/underemployed and she is a dog sitter. I explained to her that in general, conservatives take care of themselves and deplore people who take advantage of the system. She equated this with hate speech. I feel like an ass for not marrying my girlfriend of several years back in the 90’s but thought I could do better. She hated, and I mean hated children and her adoptive father. I paid to send her to a psychiatrist because that is what she wanted but she was emotionally attracted to this guy on disability who sectioned 8 out of the Navy after being locked into a broom closet. She is with him to this day. Misery loves company. I have told my folks that if I was serious about finding a mate I’d move but I am a prisoner to good jobs and good climate. Last spring I met an attractive young girl who liked me but had a tendency to chase girls when she got drunk, following them into the bathroom and feeling up their boobs. Did it to my friend’s girlfriend too! As much as I liked being with a younger attractive girl I couldn’t deal with the sociopathic behavior so I dumped her. So no children for me and I am glad that I do not have to deal with having my children taken away by a creep who has the power of the state behind her, encouraging her to bad behavior. Too bad. I have found other ways to occupy my time with work, sailing, racing off-road motorcycles, et al. I feel bad for our society but take some comfort in what my father told me twenty years ago; Women are crazy and men are assholes.

    Whiskey should move or take up a death defying sport. Women in SoCal act in the way they do because there are enough limp-dicks around to enable their behavior and always will be.

    Mr. Perminov said Apophis, named for the Egyptian god of destruction, is about three times the size of the Tungunsky meteorite, apparently the cause of a 1908 explosion in Siberia that knocked over an estimated 80 million trees. He said that according to his experts’ calculation, there was still time to design a spacecraft that could alter Apophis’s path before it made a dangerous swing toward Earth."

    Fire alone will not detonate det cord, which burns at around 24,000 feet per second, if memory serves.

    The quantity of explosive that is required to damage an aircraft depends upon many variables. Location of the explosive on the airframe being primary. Then the shape that the explosive is formed into plays an important part of the destruction formula.

    A 1/4 lb shaped charge as opposed to 1/4 pound block or lump. If the 1/4 lb of explosive was packed in his crotch, then it was not on a vital spot of the airplane.

    That 1/4 lb then becomes a flash bang, with the pants obscuring the flash. Bursting eardrums, but not the airframe.

    As it was the explosive did not explode. So all he had was a 1/4 pound of sterno fuel.

    That the plane was wheels down, meant it was below 10,000 feet, so catastrophic decompression would not have been a factor.

    One is legal, the other a war crime as defined by the Geneva Accords, as judged by US.

  131. I can buy land in Ohio, does not mean I can vote there.

    I can buy land in Panama, but that does not give me rights to rule Panama or govern Panamanians.

    The legal principle is the same in the Levant. Oenership of land, by a person that self-identifies by religion, does not bestow foreign sovereignty on that land.

  133. Forty years of Federal serfdom have had their toll on independent mental capabilities?

  134. DR,

    Hamas and Hezbollah do not make the distinction. They demand the removal or extermination of all XXXX in the region, title notwithstanding. Read their charters rather than their websites.

    Better still!!! Hop on a plane and make your case for XXXXXX territorial sovereignty and autonomy personally. I am certain your Muslim friends will be all ears.

    Do have your will in order on the off chance that your proposition is not well received.

    "Forty years of Federal serfdom have had their toll on independent mental capabilities?"

    Sigh...

    Do attempt a reading of the links.

    By the way, the reason that some land is disputed is because your friends at the UN have not mustered the courage to draw lines of demarcation, as was called for under the original terms of partition.

    In defense of the UN's failure to follow through, those darned Muslims have continually frustrated the puny effort by instigating wars.

  137. Yes, DR, one can own property in any number of states and not be franchised. However, a state within the United States is not a country. You may recall that little dust up during the 1860s revolving around issues of sovereignty.

    Here is a clue: Unless and until your Muslim pals unequivically recognize the right of existence of the state of XXXXXX, there will be no peace and no final surveying and allocation of real property. And as long as title to the land remains unsettled, both Muslims and XXXX will continue to squat at will.

  138. "I can buy land in Ohio, does not mean I can vote there.'

    you remind me of curly from the 3 stooges (except he was jewish, funny and well liked).

    buying some land in Ohio does not give your neighbors the right to push you into the Ohio River because they don't want you there.

    OK Fred?

  139. "final surveying and allocation of real property"

    oddly enough and not sure why this is but many of the surveying (geomatics) departments at the university level in my state are headed or at least partially headed by people with arab or islamic sounding last names.

    maybe some sort of trend there. maybe not.
