  1. Paris Police Say 11 Dead After Shooting at Charlie Hebdo

    Firefighters carry an injured man on a stretcher in front of the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Jan. 7, 2015, after armed gunmen stormed the offices leaving at least 11 people dead.

    Magazine was also attacked in 2011

    Eleven people were confirmed dead after a shooting at the office of a French satirical weekly in Paris, police said on Wednesday.

    The death toll was confirmed by Xavier Castaing, head of communications for the Paris police prefecture, according to the Associated Press. Earlier, Luc Poignard, a police union official, said two attackers escaped in two vehicles after opening fire at Charlie Hebdo.

    The magazine was attacked with petrol bombs in 2011, a day after saying that the Prophet Muhammed would be its “editor-in-chief” for its next issue.

  5. IDF sentences Hamas mastermind in June kidnap, murder of 3 Israeli teens to 3 life sentences

    The IDF prosecutor said during the sentencing hearing that Kawasame did not see the boys as human and killed them because they were Jews.

    Hussam Hassan Kawasme was convicted last week based on his confession of planning and financing the attack, including receiving NIS 200,000 from Hamas in the Gaza Strip, purchasing and providing weapons for the other terrorists, hiding the bodies and destroying evidence.

      No excuse for the murder of the arab kid. PERIOD.

      No excuse.

      If convicted, they will serve time in jail.

      They did not act under orders or were paid by a government agency. it was not an act of state terrorism. It was savage murder.

      Murder occurs across the world and is punished the same.

      Not all savage murder is terrorism.

      there is no comparing what hamas PLANNED and paid for, and has done repeatedly, and planned to do enmass (the billion spent on the terror tunnels) with what 3 savages did to an innocent arab teenager.

  7. Zionist Israel is part of the problem, not part of the solution. It is hardly a surprise to me that you seize on this to justify Israel’s actions against Gaza or support for the continue tragedies from the Middle East. Terrorism by a state or non-state actor ends the same, dead and the stolen lives of innocents. All religious fanatics justify their killing and atrocities. All the descendants of the religious fanatic, Abraham, at one time or another justify their murder with some form of entitlement coming down from Abraham.

    2. Zionists murder civilians, Jewish refugees in a False Flag operation

      On Nov. 25, 1940, a boat carrying Jewish refugees from Nazi Europe,
      exploded and sank off the coast of Palestine killing 252 people.

      The Zionist “Haganah” claimed the passengers committed suicide to protest British refusal to let them land.
      Years later, it admitted that rather than let the passengers go to Mauritius, it blew up the vessel for its propaganda value.

      “Sometimes it is necessary to sacrifice the few in order to save the many,”
      Moshe Sharett, a former Israeli Prime Minister said at memorial service in 1958.

      According to Israeli daily newspaper Haaretz, the most recent proposition is being spearheaded by Danny Seaman, who was slammed by the media for writing anti-Muslim messages on Facebook.

      Students will be organised into units at each university, with a chief co-ordinator who receives a full scholarship, three desk co-ordinators for language, graphics and research who receive lesser scholarships and students termed “activists” who will receive a “minimal scholarship”, the Independent reported.

  8. Why do you say Abraham was a religious fanatic?

    He seems to me a rather laid back dude who tried his best to talk the Lord out of the fire bombing of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    >>>20Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous 21that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

    22The men turned away and went toward Sodom, but Abraham remained standing before the LORD. 23Then Abraham approached him and said: "Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? 24What if there are fifty righteous people in the city? Will you really sweep it away and not spare the place for the sake of the fifty righteous people in it? 25Far be it from you to do such a thing -- to kill the righteous with the wicked, treating the righteous and the wicked alike. Far be it from you! Will not the Judge of all the earth do right?"

    26The LORD said, "If I find fifty righteous people in the city of Sodom, I will spare the whole place for their sake."

    27Then Abraham spoke up again: "Now that I have been so bold as to speak to the LORD, though I am nothing but dust and ashes, 28what if the number of the righteous is five less than fifty? Will you destroy the whole city because of five people?"<<<

    CHARLIE HEBDO MASSACRE: HOW THE WEST WILL RESPOND

    ReplyDelete
  11. Israel is, in fact, the world’s top violator of U.N. resolutions — pursuing nuclear weapons, illegally seizing Palestinian land and resources, carrying out devastating attacks on civilian populations and infrastructure as well as institutionalizing discrimination against Palestinians both within its legal borders and in the occupied territories. Despite this contemptuous disregard for international rules and norms, the U.N. has so far been unable to muster any kind of substantive response because of the U.S. veto, which is unlikely to change, despite the growing strategic cost for the United States.

    With these realities, U.S. and Israeli politicians were correct in portraying the Security Council resolution as counterproductive. U.N. resolutions can establish Palestine as a legal entity — as they have already done repeatedly and unequivocally over the last 70 years — but the U.N. will never be able to do more than this, with the U.S. wielding veto power. And the Palestinians cannot truly live in a country that, for practical purposes, exists only on paper.

    For his part, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared that Israel could “never, ever countenance” a fully sovereign Palestinian state. The world should take him at his word. There never was a two-state solution, and there won’t be one in any foreseeable future. Instead, that so-called solution serves only to enable Israel’s continued oppression, empowering cynics and hard-liners and perpetuating a never-ending cycle of conflict. The only viable resolution is to unite Israel and the territories into a single state.

    1. Consider, for instance, that for more than 20 years Palestinians have been trying to convince Israel to settle for the land they captured in 1967 — though no existing U.N. resolution recognizes Israeli seizures from the Six-Day War as legitimate (although the proposed legislation implicitly would have). Instead, U.N. actions to date refer to the legal borders established in the 1947 General Assembly resolution, insisting that any territorial changes to that be achieved exclusively through negotiations.

      The U.N. report preceding the 1947 resolution found that, Palestinians owned more than 94 percent of the property in Britain’s Mandate of Palestine and accounted for two-thirds of its population. Yet the resolution awarded 55 percent of the territory, including prime lands and resources, to Israel. The Palestinians, understandably, rejected this plan.

    2. If Abbas really wants radical change for the Palestinians’ plight, he should dissolve the Palestinian Authority and hand control of the West Bank to Israel — as he has repeatedly threatened to do — and then encourage Palestinians to demand annexation with all rights, protections and benefits granted to other Israelis. Given the one-state reality on the ground, removing the illusion of sovereign Arab institutions would render Israel responsible for the population it has subjugated for the last 70 years. A failure to rise to this challenge would expose it as an apartheid state.

      Israel justifies its mistreatment of Palestinians by claiming that Arabs are not its responsibility; whether they live within Israel or the occupied territories, they all ultimately belong in the unsettled West Bank and should be provided for by their own government — an attitude emphasized by Israel’s recent nationality law, which defines the country as an explicitly, perhaps exclusively Jewish state.

      But in a unified Israel, Arabs would be the majority if afforded the same right to return that the Jewish diaspora has; there are 3 million registered Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Syria and Jordan. And demographic projections suggest Jews will soon be the minority even without considering the Palestinian diaspora. Accordingly, Palestinians would have much more leverage in a one-state scenario; their quest would then be for equitable power sharing and civil rights.

    3. ... most Israeli Jews vehemently oppose a single state. Thus an alternative amenable to all parties would be to reintegrate Gaza, the West Bank and Israel as a federation of semiautonomous states, with Jerusalem as its capital — a proposal not far removed from the vision of Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon. There still would have to be a substantial restructuring of territory, resources and relations between the two sides.

      Either way, the first step would be to abandon the quixotic pursuit of a two-state outcome and, with it, a status quo that favors Israel at the expense of Palestinian suffering.

    4. Hell, Musa, that's ridiculous.

      Maternal DNA
      Richards and his colleagues analyzed mitochondrial DNA, which is contained in the cytoplasm of the egg and passed down only from the mother, from more than 3,500 people throughout the Near East, the Caucusus and Europe, including Ashkenazi Jews.

      The team found that four founders were responsible for 40 percent of Ashkenazi mitochondrial DNA, and that all of these founders originated in Europe. The majority of the remaining people could be traced to other European lineages.

      All told, more than 80 percent of the maternal lineages of Ashkenazi Jews could be traced to Europe, with only a few lineages originating in the Near East.

      Thus, those who might have truly claimed to be of the genealogy of Abraham and of true Semitic origin became extinct as a discernible race, being replaced by the white Khazars of the Transcaucasus, none of whose ancestors, as Benjamin Freedman phrases it, have ever placed a foot in the land of Palestine.

    It was no surprise to me that the lobby would seize this to justify Israeli action. That is the disgusting part.

    What is disgusting is that you brought Israel into a French matter. "The Lobby" had nothing to do with the murders or your prejudice.

    Some of your pals murdered at least 12 French citizens for the crime of poking fun at your prophet.

  24. No one has any proof that any of those groups are involved. My sense it is ISIS. Hamas, Hezbollah and Fatah are fighting Israel occupation of their territory. Hezbollah is fighting ISIS. Israel has bombed the enemies of ISIS.

    “The murderers dared proclaim Charlie Hebdo is dead,” said Secretary of State John F. Kerry in Washington. “But make no mistake, they are wrong. Today, and tomorrow, in Paris, in France and across the world, the freedom of expression this magazine represented is not able to be killed by this kind of act of terror.”

    Perhaps, Kerry is honestly stating his feelings on the subject of freedom of the press and 1st amendment rights . I wouldn't deny it.

    However, the irony if not hypocrisy of his and for that matter the West's words versus its actions is palpable. We have seen Obama's prosecution of writers for doing their jobs. We have seen the prosecution of the guy in California for putting out the Mohammed video. We have seen the major newspapers and media outlets in this country refusing to publish the Mohammed cartoons of a few years back; and, in fact, blaming the cartoonists for being insensitive.

    The First Amendment is just one more statement of rights sacrificed on the altar of the PC. A couple of weeks ago the DOJ indicated they would no longer be doing profiling. Homeland Security head, Johnson, today says they are still trying to 'determine the motivations' of the attackers despite everything that has been published and broadcast about the incident. Duh. It is unlikely we will hear much about terrorists and Islamic fascism coming out of the administration. And it is not only us, in the UK, some cities have no-go areas were they have pretty much ceded sovereignty to Muslims who practice sharia law.

    there is no comparing what hamas PLANNED and paid for, and has done repeatedly, and planned to do enmass (the billion spent on the terror tunnels) with what 3 savages did to an innocent arab teenager.

    That cannot be right because each act resulted in death; therefore, they are equivalent, don't you know.

  28. Where the government cannot or will not protect freedom of speech, there will be none. Where a government is hostile to freedom of speech, there will be none. Don't look for any new replacement in France or elsewhere in the West. Freedom of speech now necessitates having ones own private army.

    Saw Lindsay Graham on CNN demanding that we restore funds to Homeland Security, this despite that the GOP is currently threatening to gut Homeland Security funding in response to Obama’s actions on immigration.

    Once again, Ms. Graham is off the tracks. As we have seen from the Snowden release, the US tracks communications of everyone they can, friends and allies alike, we spend billions each year on intelligence, and yet they had no clue that this was coming. IMO, this is part of the problem, too much SIGENT and not enough HUMINT. I'm sure it has improved but right after 9/11 when we decided to knock down smoke stacks and share information between organizations, NSA, FBI, CIA, etc. the biggest problem we had was trying to make sense of the vast amount of information available. I think the problem still exists if only because of the millions of pieces of intel we pick up daily.

    IMO, we will make little progress against terrorism until we get more HUMINT and before we emphasize profiling in our efforts. However, even with those changes every country will eventually suffer from a terrorist attack, probably multiple ones. It is inevitable. They may be directed or inspired by a particular group or they may be one-off lone wolves. If we get lucky we will identify the plots ahead of time; however, in most cases, it will be a matter of ‘when seconds count, the police are only minutes away’.

    All we can do is track these guys down and make them pay.

      In support of my point above, this is at least the third attack on Charlie Hebdo in the last few years. If we couldn't predict and prevent this latest attack we are either doing something wrong or we are incapable of preventing these one-off attacks and can only react.

      Obamacare was sold on the proposition that all people should be insured. We put in the individual mandate to assure it.

      When pushing Obamacare in 2009, we were assured that there where 49.1 million uninsured in the US.

      In 2011, I seem to recall the number was the same.

      As we approached the Obamacare launch, there were numbers out there of 41 million uninsured.

      Last year, the Administration bragged that there were 8 million people that were signed up, this despite reports that a large number were from dental plans and didn't qualify and others that said that 40% of those signing up were merely people who previously had insurance transferring over to the Obamacare sites.

      Afterwards there were reports that there was still 31 million uninsured.

      The numbers never seemed to add up. Rather confusing.

      Hopefully, we will get some real numbers in 2015 now that most of the provisions will be enforced.

  35. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S.-led air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria have damaged or destroyed 3,222 targets since August, including 58 tanks, 184 Humvees, 673 fighting positions and 980 buildings or barracks, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.

    Army Colonel Steve Warren, a Pentagon spokesman, said he wasn't sure how many targets had been damaged versus destroyed, "but I'm confident that the destruction level is high. Our strikes are extraordinarily accurate."

    Release of the target damage list came a day after U.S. defense officials confirmed they are looking into reports of civilian casualties caused by the strikes in Iraq and Syria and are conducting a deeper investigation of two cases involving fewer than five deaths.

    As of 11 p.m. on Tuesday (0400 GMT Wednesday), U.S. and coalition air forces had conducted a total of 1,676 air strikes against Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria since Aug. 8, and had used some 4,775 munitions, a Pentagon spokeswoman said.

    Warren said U.S. and coalition forces had hit 3,222 targets in the air strikes but he declined to say what percentage of Islamic State equipment was destroyed.

    "In order for us to do that we would have to release to you the exact number of tanks we believe the enemy has, the exact number of Humvees we believe the enemy has," he said. "We don't want our enemy to know how much we know about them."

    Countries whose forces have participated in the strikes in Iraq are: Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, Denmark, France and the Netherlands. Those participating in strikes in Syria are Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

    1. The targets damaged or destroyed included:

      - 58 tanks;

      - 184 HMMWVs, the highly mobile multi-purpose wheeled vehicles known as Humvees;

      - 26 armored personnel vehicles;

      - 303 technical vehicles;

      - 394 other vehicles;

      - 79 artillery, anti-aircraft weapons or mortars;

      - 41 staging areas;

      - 11 improvised explosive device positions;

      - 16 command posts;

      - 92 checkpoints;

      - 17 guard shacks;

      - 980 other buildings or barracks;

      - 673 fighting positions;

      - 52 bunkers;

      - 14 boats;

      - 23 stockpiles;

      - 259 oil infrastructure sites.

      No aircraft were on the list, Warren said.

      He said the Humvees were U.S. vehicles supplied to the Iraqi military and captured by militants as were some of the armored personnel vehicles. It was unclear whether any of the tanks were U.S.-made.

      Warren said some vehicles had been hit while parked, while others were struck while engaged in combat. The boats were used by Islamic State to ferry supplies across the Euphrates River, he said.

      Winning against IS is the easy part since we can define 'win' any way we want. To say we will 'defeat' them falls into the same category. To say they will be 'destroyed' is another matter altogether. Heck, the PKK and the FARC despite huge losses have been around for decades. Obama said AQ had been defeated. We know that was a bit of an exaggeration. To say there will be no IS in Iraq in six or seven months or a year, IMO, is naive. There might not be as many of them there but I suspect they will still be there. Their tactics may morph, they may not operate as openly, but they will still be there.

      The most we can hope to do is contain it.

      As long as they are still in Syria, they will still be in Iraq. They, or their affiliates, are already in Egypt, Libya, and Yemen. There was an attack at the Saudi border recently. SA and the UAE are concerned about IS attacks coming from Yemen. SA and the UAE have even convinced Qatar to drop their support for the Syrian militants including IS. There are those in Israel who worry that weakening Hamas too much in Gaza could lead to IS moving in.

      Terrorism has been around for a very long time. It is the weapon of the weak. I expect IS, under one name or another, will be around for a while.
