Qatar suspends ties with Israel

DOHA, Qatar (AP) – Qatar and Mauritania suspended contacts with Israel to protest the Gaza bloodshed at an Arab summit Friday that deepened the divisions between pro-U.S. Arab nations and their rivals in the Middle East.

U.S. allies Egypt and Saudi Arabia led a boycott of the gathering in the Qatari capital, which the Gulf nation had called to take a united stance over the Gaza violence but which ended up being dominated by backers of the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Iran’s hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a top Hamas supporter, made a surprise appearance, along with Hamas’ Syria-based political chief Khaled Mashaal. They and Syria’s president made fiery denunciations of Israel and called for Arab and Muslim nations to cut any bilateral ties they have with the Jewish state.

Syrian President Bashar Assad repeated an earlier announcement that his country had frozen its indirect peace negotiations with Israel, mediated by Turkey. He also declared that a 2002 Saudi-led Arab peace offer to Israel was “dead” because of the assault against Hamas in Gaza.

Personally, I think a more appropriate title for this piece would be ‘Birds of a feather’, they DO flock together don’t they!

The Islamic world is united in their stance against Israel. The Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, still opines daily that Israel must be destroyed, wiped from the face of the earth. Funny, I don’t seem to remember hearing him, or any other Islamic leader condemning Hamas for launching rockets into Israel, all I hear is their lamentations when Israel strikes back.

A great number of Americans support Israel. At this point in time the American government supports Israel but doesn’t urge Israel on in their efforts to assure their own peaceful existence. Instead, the Bush administration urges ‘restraint’ while acknowledging the FACT that Israel is defending itself. Israel had best enjoy what bit of official support they are getting from the United States, I fear that support is about to end!

On Tuesday this nation swears in a person that I fear will turn his terrorist loving back on Israel. The *War on Terror* is about to suffer a terrible blow. There is speculation that our troops will be out of Iraq in 16 months, and that is the ONLY thing I have found from the incoming administration that I can agree with. Those troops are going to be needed more here at home in the immediate future I fear.

Once the kinder, gentler, more progressive methods of dealing with terrorists is on full display by the Obama administration, we will become the primary targets OF the worlds terrorists and Israel will be left on it’s own, a sink or swim scenario if you will. We have ONE FRIEND on that side of the world, Israel. And I fear we are about to abandon them!

The incoming administration is more concerned with the rights of terrorists than they are those of the American people. Obama believes he can negotiate with the terrorist of Islam, but he is in for a rude awakening. Islam doesn’t want negotiations, Islam wants submission, or death to those that refuse to submit! Once Obama engages in what will be ineffectual and fruitless negotiations, once the terrorists see that the USA is being led by a spineless idiot that only wants to talk, WE will become the next battlefield.

And all the while we will be fighting our own government for the right to keep and bear arms!

Bin Laden urges jihad against Israel; White House scoffs

Bin Laden urges jihad against Israel; White House scoffs

CAIRO (AP) — al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden urged Muslims to launch a jihad against Israel and condemned Arab governments as allies of the Jewish state in a new message aimed at harnessing anger in the Mideast over the Gaza offensive.

The White House responded to the message, saying the audiotape appeared to reflect the “isolation” of the al-Qaeda leader.

Bin Laden urges jihad against Israel; White House scoffs

Can someone please explain to me HOW IN THE HELL we can track a cow from it’s conception in a breeding barn all the way through it’s life, right down to the very dinner table it was consumed on and we can’t find a 6’7″ tall terrorist that’s on kidney dialysis?

Those are some pretty good identification characteristics. An Arab that tall is an obvious *give away*, plus, the dialysis equipment is NOT something that you just pack up and take to your local cave!

I know many bloggers that believe bin-Laden is dead. It appears that he is NOT dead, or, the technicians that make these al-Qaeda tapes are a lot more skilled than we have ever imagined. It appears they have found a way to clone bin-Laden, and do an exact voice match on his speech patterns! So it appears.

Personally, I believe bin-Laden to be dead and this *voice* is that of a very good impersonator, and these taped releases are acts of defiance by radical Islam.

Recently I had another of the Bush Bot sheeple accost me regarding my CONSERVATIVE bonafides, saying he could not understand how I could claim to be a Conservative, support Israel in their effort against Hamas and NOT support the war on terror. I am not going to use that individuals real name here but I will use his screen name so he knows, without a doubt, that I AM addressing him.

Oz, the war in Afghanistan IS the war on terror, or, it was, right up until the time that GWB took all focus off of that battle so that he could pursue Saddam Hussein, for what I believe to be nothing more than personal reasons.

Pay attention you Bush Bots, back when we had a Republican controlled House and Senate, they, along with the DoD and the CIA made the determination that Iraq had played NO role in the attacks of 9-11 and that Iraq was not supporting al-Qaeda or the Taliban, Hamas or any other organization other than themselves. That was back a couple of years ago before President Numbnutz lost control of this nation, outed himself for the RINO that he really is, and gave this nation over to the Democrats and their lunacy.

We don’t have bin-Laden, either in person, or his bones, simply because our A.D.D. president lost HIS focus and took this nation on a wild goose chase that has all but bankrupted us and cost the lives of over 4,200 U.S. military members! Iraq is still run by a warlord, al-Maliki, we are still pouring BILLIONS of dollars into a losing proposition, Iraq, a country that is currently enjoying a multi-BILLION dollar surplus in their own treasury, and there are still IED attacks and suicide bombers striking almost daily!

Not support the war on error?? How DARE you! The war on terror had nothing to do with Iraq, Iraq is a manufactured objective, nothing more. By losing his focus on the capture of bin-Laden and the total annihilation of the Taliban when he took off to vindicate *Daddy* by going after Saddam, George W. Bush did more to escalate the war on terror, FOR the terrorists, than he ever did to actually combat that war!

The war on terror is not over, it is merely on a brief hiatus. The terrorists of this world are simply waiting. WE are their next target and they are waiting for Obama to be seated and for him to loose the dogs of disarmament, the massive *gun grab* that WILL come if the Obama administration has their way. Once the American people are disarmed we will see the attacks begin right here, in this USA, begin in earnest. The reason they haven’t begun yet is because the terrorists fear the ARMED American people, and their patriotic reaction if they commence their attacks while we are still an armed and angry segment, a large segment, of this nation!

The American people are the very reason this nation has never been invaded by a military force, they didn’t fear our military, they feared our citizens and the guerrilla campaign that is sure to follow. IF the Obama administration has it’s way, we won’t be able to mount that campaign, and the enemies of this nation will have very little standing in their way as they take this nation by storm. Our military is already *stretched to the breaking point* from having to conduct operations in Iraq and Afghanistan simultaneously. A defensive nationwide effort?? Here in the USA?? Under Obama and the emasculated military that his leadership WILL bring about?

The war on terror?? Figure it our folks, George W. Bush had dug the hole, Barack Obama will fill it in, with American bodies. I fear the enemies of this nation, the *domestic* enemies. They have the ability to be more destructive than all the terror attacks combined!

Obama seeks access to half of bailout funds

Obama can’t wait to get control of the money. Here comes Chicago politics on a national level folks. As much as I despise George W. Bush, Obama is going to make Bush look like a benevolent *father figure* before this is all said and done!

Bernanke: Obama stimulus would lift economy

LONDON (AP) – Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said Tuesday the stimulus package being crafted by President-elect Barack Obama and Congress could provide a “significant boost” to the sinking economy. But he warned that such a recovery won’t last unless other steps are taken to stabilize the shaky financial system.

Isn’t that what Bernanke has said all through the current crash of the markets and business under Bush too?? You don’t suppose Bernanke is an ass-kissing *Yes* man do you??

Israeli envoy plans ‘decisive’ talks in Egypt

GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) – Israel’s chief negotiator will go to Egypt for “decisive” talks on a cease-fire with Hamas, officials said Tuesday, as the sound of battles between Israeli troops and Palestinian militants rang out in the crowded streets of Gaza City.

Israeli envoy plans ‘decisive’ talks in Egypt

The talks that Israel needs to have with Egypt need to go along the lines of, “Stop Hamas in YOUR nation or we will do it for you!” You can’t be any more clear than that. Israel already KNOWS that they can *take* Egypt, they have done it before, and they can do it again! Maybe they should!
