Secretary of State John Kerry’s push for a ceasefire in Gaza last week was so flawed it managed to unite Israel’s fractious political leadership in opposition while simultaneously being lambasted by the Palestinian Authority.

The proposal called for negotiations on Hamas demands, including opening border crossings into Gaza and relaxed boating restrictions off the Gaza coast. In addition, its language reportedly upgraded Hamas – a designated terrorist organization – to an equal plane with Israel. Then, President Obama called Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Sunday to make “clear the strategic imperative of instituting an immediate, unconditional humanitarian ceasefire that ends hostilities now and leads to a permanent cessation of hostilities based on the November 2012 ceasefire agreement.”

In other words, Obama demanded that Israel institute an immediate unilateral ceasefire even while Hamas continues its terrorist operations against Israel. True to form, Hamas escalated its attacks on Monday.

A mortar attack on the community of Eshkol near the Gaza border killed four Israeli civilians and wounded nine others, five of whom were in critical condition. At the same time, a squad of heavily-armed Hamas terrorists emerged from a tunnel near Kibbutz Nahal Oz in an attempt to carry out a mass murder attack. The Israeli military killed one terrorist and is searching for the others.

The U.S. response? In addition to more demands that Israel stop trying to root out the Hamas terror infrastructure in Gaza, administration officials Monday expressed anger that the Israelis would leak details of the proposed ceasefire and criticize Kerry.

This overlooks an important fact – Kerry’s proposal also angered the Palestinian Authority – with a senior official telling London-based Saudi newspaper Al-Sharq Al-Awsat that…

“Kerry wanted to create a framework that would be an alternative to the Egyptian initiative and to our concept regarding it, in order to please Qatar and Turkey.” The move would strengthen the Muslim Brotherhood’s stature, the PA official said, “because the Americans think – and will be proven wrong – that that moderate political Islam represented by the Muslim Brotherhood can combat radical Islam…”

U.S. officials continue to pressure Israel, which already has accepted five ceasefires. All of them were broken by Hamas.

Reports out of Israel say Kerry’s proposal did nothing to help identify and dismantle Hamas tunnels or strip it of its remaining rocket arsenal. Israel’s security cabinet quickly and unanimously rejected it.

An unnamed senior U.S. official briefed Israeli reporters Sunday night, claiming the proposal is being misrepresented. “There was no Kerry plan,” the official said. “There was a concept based on the Egyptian cease-fire plans that Israel had signed off on.”

Kerry’s disastrous idea, giving Hamas a clear diplomatic win at a time it had nothing to show but devastation for a fight it started, drew perverse praise.

If there are suggestions for a better way for Israel to unearth the tunnels and to stop the rocket fire emanating from crammed neighborhoods surrounded by civilians, by all means, offer them up.

But let’s not pretend that this conflict can be resolved by giving Hamas what it wants.

“Do you want to recognize Israel as a Jewish state?” Rose asked.

“No,” Meshaal said. After a long pause, he added, “I said I do not want to live with a state of occupiers.” To Hamas, as its charter makes clear, all of Israel is occupied Palestinian land. There can be no peace until Hamas either gives up on its founding principle to destroy Israel or until it is removed from power and influence.

Kerry may be feeling some of the sting from all the criticism. In new remarks Monday, he emphasized the need to disarm Hamas.

But he has lost tremendous credibility with those elements who stand opposed to Hamas and its benefactors in Qatar and Turkey. “Jerusalem,” writes Horovitz, “now regards him as duplicitous and dangerous.”

If he really cares about generating a lasting peace, his next, best move might be resignation. As for President Obama, he might start to educate himself about Hamas’ horrific murderous actions and agenda before approving a plan that allows this al-Qaida clone to resurrect itself after being seriously wounded by defensive Israeli actions.

Pushing a ceasefire that accentuates Hamas demands could not be more counterproductive.

Uniformed men are carrying the coffins to hearses as loved ones watch on the tarmac:

As the The Federal Aviation Administration has extended its ban on U.S. airlines’ flights to and from Tel Aviv, Israel, for another 24 hours, those of us watching CNN, see JUST what hateful terrorism does. The unspeakable evil of those without conscience. The moving tribute on CNN shows us how good humanity can be. THAT is what we need to hold close. ~ JP

(CNN) — A lone bugler sounding the traditional military farewell “Last Post” marked the arrival Wednesday in the Netherlands of the first dead from the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.

The grieving nation then held a moment of silence to honor those killed in the crash of the jetliner, downed last week by a suspected surface-to-air missile over war-torn eastern Ukraine.

In a ceremony rich with martial symbolism — from saluting soldiers to the haunting tune used to send war dead to their rest — 40 bodies borne in simple wooden caskets were solemnly unloaded from two military planes. Soldiers then walked them to waiting hearses and lowered them inside before rendering a final salute.

The only sounds: the hushed orders of soldiers and a whipping wind.

A long line of hearses, accompanied by police, carried the remains slowly through Hilversum, Netherlands, on their way to a Dutch military base where forensic investigators will begin the grim work of identifying them. Dutch residents lined parts of the route to pay respects to the dead.

Multiple sources tell Fox News that less than a year before the Benghazi attack, the United States consulate warned the State Department that a militia group rented a space next door.

Fox News’ Adam Housley reported that within three weeks of the U.S. renting the compound, a group aligned with Ansar al-Sharia – the terror organization believed to be behind the attack – moved in nearby.

An intelligence source told Fox News, “We warned D.C. about the guys who moved in next door, but nobody knew what to do and nothing was done.”

Additionally, Housley said some of the sources asked for sandbags and a belt-fed machine gun to help increase security, but they were supposedly told it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing and would upset the neighbors.

Intercepted phone calls purportedly between Russian military intelligence officers and members of a pro-Russian separatist group that appear to capture the moment the rebels realized the plane they shot down was a civilian passenger plane could be the smoking gun that helps prove Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed Ukraine by the insurgents.

caption

The tapes were released by SBU, Ukraine’s security agency, and transcript was published in the Kiev Post. It appears to capture the chaotic moments after the plane was shot down — and the realization that it was a passenger plane rather than a Ukrainian transport plane, which had been targeted in recent days by the Russia-backed separatists.

“We have just shot down a plane,” says a man the SBU identified as Igor Bezler, a Russian military intelligence officer and leading commander of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.

That call came just 20 minutes after the crash and was placed to a person identified by Ukraine’s SBU as a colonel in the main intelligence department of the general headquarters of the armed forces of the Russian Federation Vasili Geranin, according to Ukraine security officials.

caption3

In a second tape released by the agency, two men identified as “The Greek” and “Major” discuss the debris field and the fact the the plane was a civilian aircraft.

“It’s 100 percent a passenger [civilian] aircraft,” Major is recorded as saying, as he admitted to seeing no weapons on site. “Absolutely nothing. Civilian items, medicinal stuff, towels, toilet paper.”

Major: “These are Chernukhin folks who shot down the plane. From the Chernukhin check point. Those cossacks who are based in Chernukhino.”

Grek: “Yes, Major.”

Major: “The plane fell apart in the air. In the area of Petropavlovskaya mine. The first ’200′ [code word for dead person]. We have found the first '200.' A Civilian."

Greek: "Well, what do you have there?"

Major: "In short, it was 100 percent a passenger [civilian] aircraft."

Greek: "Are many people there?"

Major: "Holy [expletive]! The debris fell right into the yards [of homes]."

Today’s special show on the war in Israel begins with an angry, out-of-control HAMAS leader in downtown Atlanta, nearly attacking a pro-Israel supporter and ends with a Jordan Schachtel report about a group of highly talented Jewish college students operating an anti-propaganda media network in Herzliya, Israel.

An Urdu-to-English dictionary was not something Mike Vickers expected to find on the rocky earth underneath the cattle fencing around his 1,000-acre Texas ranch.

Yet there it was — dropped, Vickers guesses, when its carrier got zapped by his fence’s electricity, and adding yet another dimension to the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border, where tens of thousands of people have been flooding into the United States.

Vickers’ property line runs along Highway 281, just 4 1/2 miles north from the Falfurrias Border Patrol station. The station itself is about 70 miles north of the Rio Grande, the first highway checkpoint for vehicles coming from Mexico in an area known for heavy illegal alien and drug trafficking. Instead of moving through the checkpoint, however, Vickers said that up to 30 people cross his property every day to try to evade the Border Patrol. Years ago, it was only a handful a day.

“They know they can get in easier and they won’t be turned back home.”

Dr. Michael Vickers and Chris Burgard learn a few phrases of Urdu, from an Urdu dictionary, that was dropped by a coyote on the Vickers’ ranch. It really isn’t a laughing matter when people from countries of concern are invading your property, but then again, you don’t mess with Texas.

Boko Haram has released a video mocking the #BringBackOurGirls campaign, warping the slogan to say “Bring back our army”.

In the film obtained by AFP, the leader of the Islamic militant group, which kidnapped nearly 300 Nigerian schoolgirls in April, is seen shouting zealously at the camera while flanked by gun-toting supporters.

Abubakar Shekau demands that the government release detained insurgents in exchange for the missing schoolgirls and chants “I trust in Allah”.

In another clip the terrorist leader brags about recent victories, including two explosions at a fuel depot in Lagos that the government tried to cover up.

As we move through our investigative series, The Wizard of “K” Street, we ran across a “unique” Muslim Imam who seems to be a very aggressive supporter of Muslim Brotherhood collaborator, Grover Norquist. The Imam, Mr. Sami Al Arian-owitz, was at the 2014 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) passing out a book that actually exposes Norquist as a Muslim Brotherhood agent! Apparently, Sami Al-Arian-owitz takes pride in the fact that Grover has infiltrated the Conservative movement in America and influences many politicians, moving them away from traditional Constitutional principles. Sit back and enjoy the words and actions of Mr. Sami, who goes to Washington!

FYI: Humor :)

As we move through this micro-series you will see how Norquist’s nefarious work impacts YOU on a daily basis in the areas of:

attack our prophet and islam.

We have covered these conferences since 1998 being they were in our backyard of Rosemont, IL. It is how I got to know my friend Steve Emerson.

chicago-seerah

When it is they who are hate-filled and caused much turmoil in a community of Western and Devon (2701 W. Devon Ave.) in Chicago, where this group is located that is promoting this conference. This community borders an enormous Jewish community. Imagine that. An extremist islamist community surrounding a Jewish one! Shades of Israel.

This is the promo of this group:

- Remember the Danish cartoons defaming the Prophet?

- Remember anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims”?

These attacks are no accident. Hate groups in the U.S. have invested at least $140 million dollars to attack our Prophet and Islam.

Isn’t it time we invested in defending our Prophet?

Yep, Patriots this has been going on in our backyards since before 9/11 and continues until the end of time.

This program will raise funds to establish a Strategic Communication Center for the Muslim community, which will develop effective responses to attacks like those mentioned above, as well as to train young Muslims in media. Train muslims in?!

When: Saturday, April 19, 2014. 4:30pm CST for appetizers, registration and Asr. the program begins at 5:30 PM Sharp.

Where: Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 9291 Bryn Mawr Ave, Rosemont, IL 60018

Speakers:

* Dr. Abdalla Idris Ali (Canada) Probably the most loved president of ISNA (1992-1997), he developed and implemented Islamic and Arabic Studies curricula for elementary and junior high students. He is considered a pioneer in the area of Islamic education in North America.

* Prof. John Esposito (DC) He speaks regularly at many conferences and Chicago University. He is billed as the most prominent scholar attacked by Muslim haters. World governments, corporations, universities, and the media consults him as a balanced non-Muslim voice on Islam.

Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR) has organized rallies throughout the country since last summer, demanding Muslim Brotherhood politician Mohamed Morsi be reinstated as Egypt’s president. Those rallies normally showed a degree of discipline, with chants calling for democracy and expressing love of Morsi himself, with the Muslim Brotherhood going unmentioned.

A Feb. 8 rally outside the Saudi Arabian consulate in New York City didn’t focus on the Islamist group, either. But chants and speeches in Arabic blamed the Saudis for Egypt’s political situation, with some calling on God to destroy the Saudi regime, and allegations they are trying to “sell Egypt to the Jews.”
