And of course the press, seen here hiding behind a posed 'Palestinian' protester. As you know, people tend to act out more when the cameras are on them, so what we're really seeing is the press inciting violence.
Twitter user Captain Barak Raz, who identifies himself as a spokesperson for the IDF's division in Judea and Samaria , posted a video of protesters throwing a firebomb at Israeli security forces.
Raz also posted a picture of a Palestinian child throwing a stone for the photographers.
“Wow that’s one young rioter!!” Raz tweeted. “Peaceful??”
That's exactly why Oslo and the entire 'peace process' was always nonsense.
Ask yourself...what kind of parent would take a child of theirs into the middle of a violent riot? What kind of parent would smilingly teach him this kind of hatred?
The official purpose today was to violently penetrate Israel's borders and 'reconquer' Jerusalem.
The unofficial purpose is best expressed by Noah Pollack, executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel.
“GMJ uses the same PR tactic that has become standard for all the terrorist groups who attack Israel. They want to put the Israelis in a situation where they have to kill people. Hamas, Hezbollah, GMJ—it’s all the same strategy: force the IDF to kill people, get it on video, kick back and enjoy the media furor.”
Even more revealing are some of the anti-Semitic jackals in the west who are staunchly supporting today's festivities, including Desmond Tutu, Noam Chomsky and Cornell West, Nobel peace laureate Mairead Maguire, and the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
FP: I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the West is directly engaged in anti-Semitic genocide via its funding and support of the Palestinians. The conflict would have been resolved a long time ago had it not been for that support, UNRWA being the central component. And it was at Oslo that Israel embarked on a damaging strategy of appeasing the West, just when the West started its decline, thus inviting an increase in genocidal anti-Semitism.
And Israel’s Jewish “friends” in the US assure us that if Israel stopped oppressing the Arabs and retreated from the West Bank, all this would not happen. That, in a sense, it’s true: it would not happen at the borders, but inside Israel.
Another part of their problem with Israel is that it is, in a sense, too “Jewish” and at odds with their preferred ideology. They want Israel to be what they want America and Europe to be. Yet instead it is too religious; too traditional; too much of a nation-state; too willing to defend itself; and too willing to recognize its enemies even if they are non-white, non-Western, and non-Christian.
Yet beyond all of this there is one more point to be understood that is of the greatest importance: the program of this sacrifice (I mean, “save”) Israel for its own good. That is the very strange program of calling for a boycott of the settlements.
Boycotting the settlements will not affect the settlements, or Israel, or the policies of Israel’s Middle Eastern enemies, and it won’t promote the cause of peace. True, this is an attractive strategy because it sounds moderate and supportive of “mainstream” Israel. But that’s only part of it.
No, the main reason is that it will promote the cause of delegitimizing Israel.
The goal is to change the narrative. Instead of blaming the Palestinian leadership’s, Arab regimes’, and revolutionary Islamists’ rejection of Israel’s existence, refusal to make compromises, glorification of terrorism, demonization of Israel, and refusal even won’t negotiate, the fault lies with Israel. They don’t have to change at all. It’s Israel that has to make more concessions and take even more risks.
FP: In fact, the deluded liberal Jews are making a mistake similar to the one made by Israel’ Oslo accords. In both cases it was not and is not realized that the desired reality is not the actual reality and confuse the two will pay a heavy price. In the same manner in which Oslo, which was supposed to achieve peace, ended up in the West blaming Israel for Arab rejectionism, war and terror, the American liberal Jews’ delusion that a Palestinian state will bring peace end up in the destruction of Israel. There are many so deluded in Israel too.
Daniel Greenfield: Friday Afternoon Roundup - The Meaning of Freedom
1. KILL PEOPLE 2. GET MONEY 3. PROFIT 4. ALLAH AKBAR
The United States said Thursday it wanted to step up development assistance to Nigeria's restive Muslim-majority north as it urged the Abuja government to address grievances underlying violence.
Carson, while voicing concern about Boko Haram, said that Nigeria's federal government needed to address "the underlying political and socio-economic problems in the north" to prevent extremism.
"The government must also promote respect for human rights by its security forces, whose heavy-handed tactics and extra-judicial killings reinforce the belief that Abuja is insensitive to the concerns of the north," he said.
Carson said that the State Department took Boko Haram's potential threat to the United States "very seriously" but indicated that he opposed a terrorist designation.
FP: Would you now agree with my claim that the US is realigning with Islamism?
What reasonable interest does someone in the Pentagon have in hardening the Iranian pharaoh’s heart on the eve of Passover, and indicating to him that he has nothing to fear? This borders on insanity.
FP: Yeah, let’s appease Obama some more and get him re-elected.
A police officer in eastern Afghanistan shot dead nine of his colleagues as they slept Friday morning and then fled in a government vehicle full of guns and ammunition, according to Afghan and American officials. The nine had been drugged earlier, an Afghan official said.
The incident, which took place in Paktika province, marks one of the deadliest cases of fratricide in Afghanistan this year. The apparent surge in such incidents -- when Afghan soldiers and policemen target their American and Afghan colleagues -- has raised concerns about the state of the war effort during a critical time, just as the Taliban's yearly "spring offensive" has begun.
FP: Building a nation for these people is the errand of a fool with a suicidal wish. See Bill Katz’s WARNING FROM A GROWN-UP.
And history is replete with many dominant powers that tried and failed. That they are not powers anymore validates the argument. Afghanis are as much a nation as the Palestinians.
Bill Katz: CALL AN AMBULANCE
A terminally whacked out professor of "sociology and environmental studies," based in Oregon, believes that denial of climate change is aberrant behavior and must be treated. Professor Kari Norgaard equates the behavior with racism. She made this assertion while attending a conference at which "scientists" are advocating pushing humans into denser and denser cities so that the rest of the planet can be given back to Mother Nature. I'd love to know how many federal dollars are involved in this.
FP: What passes for academia and higher education these days.
Global Guerilla: Drones and Operational Maneuverability
Autonomous drone swarms will increasingly replace traditional, human-based military units in the near future. That's a fact. It's already starting.
Some early morning thoughts on how these swarms will maneuver in operational space.
You should understand that the evolution of warfare drives social organization (which makes it pretty hilarious that our academic institutions don't study it as a discipline unto itself). The advent of drone swarms will change how our social system is organized. Hint: it's VERY anti-democratic and very similar to feudal models of violence.
FP: But can you imagine what this relatively cheap,and accessible technology will do in the hands of terrorists? A much more effective lower tech WMT than the expensive, high-tech and overdestructive WMD’s.
Mark Steyn: Swingin’ Kennedy
And yet, and yet . . . If you incline to the view that Obamacare is a transformative act, isn’t there something slightly pitiful about the fact that the liberties of over 300 million people hinge on the somewhat whimsical leanings of just one man? I mean, Kennedy seems a cheery enough cove, but who died and made him the all-powerful Sultan of Swing? “It is a decision of the Supreme Court,” explained Nancy Pelosi a few years back in more congenial times for the Democrats. “So this is almost as if God has spoken.”
That’s not how earlier Americans saw it: “If the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court,” wrote Abraham Lincoln, “the people will have ceased to be their own rulers.”
FP: A fundamental flaw in the American political system.
Sandra Zaher was apparently swayed by what I call, “the most effective form of free speech”: pillow talk. Zaher, an immigration lawyer in Canada, is married to an Arab. And she has a booming business helping Muslims defraud Canadian and U.S. immigration authorities. At least, it was booming until she got caught. What I want to know is why it is even necessary to lie to Canadian immigration authorities. In hockey, they refer to parties like that (particularly, goalies) as “sieves.” They let everything–and everyone–in.
So the Muslims Ms. Zaher helped must have really been terrorists (they let those into Canada–and the U.S.–too; see, Imad Hamad, Tariq Ramadan, etc.). On the other hand, only barely mentioned in Canadian coverage of the story, Zaher helped Muslims immigrate from Syria, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates to the United States, too. How many of her Muslim clients committed immigration fraud to get here? I’d bet a lot.
Since Zaher’s office is so close to the U.S. border, so I wonder how many of her Muslim immigration defrauding clients have since sneaked into the U.S. via Detroit. But her website tells Syrian and Saudi Arabian Muslims that they should hire her if they want to “visit” the U.S. (See the screenshot from her website, above.) So, she’s likely also involved in direct immigration fraud in the U.S., too.
Ya think Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) cares and is investigating?
FP: Based on the approval of their green cards after the nineteen terrorists committed 9/11, the handling of Obama’s uncle case and our own experience with USCIS, I’ve come to the conclusion that the only thing the agency, like all the components of DHS, is capable of is to cause stupid hassles to legal legal applicants, as the illegal ones, particularly terrorists, either sail through or are ignored. Indeed, Obama’s limiting its agents from doing their duty and his recent giving residency to Syrians, including illegals suggests that its dismantling would have no effect on illegals but at the very least it would terminate the hassling of legal immigrants.
