    250,000 and Counting at Tel Aviv Anti-disengagement Rally

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 6:00 pm

    Opposition is growing and the protests are setting records. Sharon must be hoping these crowds plan on staying in Tel Aviv. I doubt his military roadblocks and IDF human chains are any match for protests this large, unless of course he really is willing to use violent force against his own people. I wouldn’t be shocked I suppose.

    More than 250,000 people have crowded Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square and countless thousands are trying to join one of the largest-ever demonstrations in Israel. A rally several years ago during the Oslo agreements and proposed withdrawal from the Golan Heights filled the square and surroundings with more than 250,000 people, according to media estimates.

    “There are people as far as the eye can see,” said one participant. Dr. Avi Zelba, police spokesman for foreign reporters, said the police do not estimate crowds and that all press reports of police estimates are not authoritative.

    Bush: Pullout will be good for Israel

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:35 pm

    President Bush’s comments today on the disengagement displayed both his ignorance of the situation on the ground in Israel, and his willingness to treat terrorism inflicted on Jews as a lesser evil than terrorism suffered by Americans or any other country.

    Bush offered as evidence that the disengagement is the best hope for peace a dramatic decline in violence and death since the Gaza pullout plan began being implemented. There’s just one problem with this rationalization Mr. President. In reality (not the one you choose to create when speaking on the topic of Palestinian terrorism), July marks an 18 month high in Palestinian terrorist attacks on Israel!

    While I applaud President Bush for at least mentioning that there was an “intifada, killing, and death” in the Middle East before this fictional decrease in violence, I wonder if he noticed at all who was doing most of the dieing and who was waging the Jihad? Depicting the situation in the Middle East in general terms without naming names is his way of spreading the blame. It makes his weird reality, where the Palestinians say “thank you” and spontaneously form a Democracy, seem possible. I wonder if he realizes he’s handing a port of entry into the Middle East and the land for a new terror base over to the friends of our worst enemy. Al Qaida needed a new home, and they got one.

    On the eve of disengagement, one of the most traumatic episodes Israeli society has ever faced, US President George W. Bush tried to assure the country Thursday that it was doing the right thing.

    “Disengagement is I think a part of making Israel more secure and peaceful,” Bush said in a Channel 1 interview from his ranch in Crawford, Texas. “I believe that the decision the prime minister has made and will follow through on will be good for Israel.”

    [..]Bush said that he understood that Israelis were concerned that disengagement would create a “vacuum into which terrorism will flow.” However, he said, “I happen to disagree, I think this will create an opportunity for democracy to emerge, and democracies are peaceful.”

    Bush said that the US, “as an active participant in this process,” would encourage the formation of Palestinian security forces to fight terror, “just like the road map calls for.” (Riiiight, he rejects the rest of the worlds reality and substitutes his own. – Scriptorium ed.)

    Asked why he was so confident that the plan would enhance security, Bush said, “First of all the previous system wasn’t’ working – there was an intifada, there was death, there was killing. If you notice there has been a calm in attacks. One attack is too many, but there have been fewer attacks.”

    Bush said that in the long run the ultimate solution for Israel’s security was “two states living side by side in peace.” In the meantime, he said, “we have to work to dismantle terrorist organizations, and that is precisely what the roadmap calls for.” (and that’s precisely what never actually happens – .ed). . . .

    Anti-pullout Evangelicals may try to block US aid

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:06 pm

    I’m not sure how much good this can do, but I can understand not wanting the U.S. to pay for the eviction of Jews from Gaza. The bigger problem, however, is the billions of dollars thrown down the rat hole that is the Palestinian Authority. Aid to the PA is not only supporting the “disengagement”, it’s funding the terrorists that will use Gaza as a terrorist base once the Jews have been successfully evicted.

    A coalition of pro-Israel Evangelical groups is to meet in Washington in the near future to discuss whether to actively oppose US financial
    aid for Israel tied to disengagement, according to Richard Hellman, head of the Christians’ Israeli Public Action Committee.

    Israel and the US are currently talking about a $2.2 billion package, spread over four years, to offset disengagement costs and facilitate development of the Galilee and Negev.

    Hellman, head of a small Christian-based pro-Israel lobbying group who brought a group of CIPAC members here this week, said he was not sure
    Evangelical groups could support such aid and may even actively oppose it.

    If so, they would not be alone. On Wednesday, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon charged that a leading member of the so-called Likud rebels
    opposed to disengagement went to Washington last week and lobbied an influential congressman against military aid for Israel tied to the plan.

    Hellman said that there was opposition among Evangelicals to aid to the Palestinians “because they have not accounted for tens of billions
    of dollars they have already received,” and opposition to disengagement-linked aid for Israel because it would mean the US is “inadvertently funding something that may be bad for US national
    security.”

    Hellman said his group was asking the administration and Congress to “look twice before supporting disengagement because of what it would
    mean for US security interests.”

    “If Israel, with all respect, is so foolish as to do this – pull its settlers and troops out of Gaza, and thereby give Hamas, Fatah and Islamic Jihad reason for cheering and exultation that they defeated you again – that is your decision. But we say that America should not endorse this, police it or possibly pay for it,” Hellman said. . . . .

    ACLU Terrorists Collect More of Our Tax Dollars

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 3:11 pm

    I’ve ranted many times on this blog about the tax payer dollars that go to the ACLU for their judicial terrorism against the American people. Many of you out there may not believe our tax dollars are really funding that non-profit organization. This story is a perfect example of how the ACLU’s attacks on Christian values pay off, and pay off big. When you consider the number of cases just like this one all over the country, it becomes obvious that the ACLU has no reason to ever stop its mission to ban Christianity in the public square, provide aid and comfort to our terrorist enemies, and destroy our constitution through judicial activism. Suing Americans for exercising their constitutional rights is big business.

    Nearly two years after an anonymous resident sued the county to remove a framed copy of the Ten Commandments from the courthouse breezeway, Barrow County commissioners authorized a payment of $150,001 to the American Civil Liberties Union and the resident to be paid today with taxpayer dollars.
    Commission Chairman Doug Garrison said the county will write two checks, one for $1 to John Doe and the other to the ACLU. The identity of the person who sued the county has remained a secret.
    “I hope he signs it and endorses it so when it comes back, we’ll know who he is,” Garrison said of the check to John Doe. “I don’t expect it ever to be cashed.”

    The county has spent $414,748.54 on the lawsuit, including the settlement. Garrison said attorney Herb Titus has not sent the county a bill since April, but they may still see one, adding to the county’s total fees. Titus charges $300 an hour.

    Of the total funds spent, $213,436.14 has been paid by Ten Commandments-Georgia Inc., a group dedicated, in part, to funding the county’s court case. The county has used $93,747.49 in taxpayer dollars and Ten Commandments-Georgia has pledged to reimburse all of it, though President Jody Hice has said previously that they will not pay for the settlement. . . . . .

    9/11 panel hammered for ignoring Atta intel

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 12:41 pm

    It turns out the 9/11 Commission’s report, and what we thought we knew about intelligence failures prior to the attacks on the World Trade Center were based on lies and political cover-ups. As most intelligent people on the Right feared, the 9/11 Commission, established to prevent any government failures that may have contributed to 9/11 from ever happening again, was used to cover up the mistakes of the Clinton administration and protect the liberal ideology that continues to put us in danger today.

    I can’t imagine how angry the families of the 3,000 victims of 9/11 must feel right now. Our government, under the tolerant, politically correct Clinton administration had received intelligence from a classified military intelligence unit known as “Able Danger” over a year before the September 11 tragedy. The intelligence identified Mohamed Atta as part of an al-Qaida cell in the U.S. and suggested Atta and three others be deported. The Clinton Administration’s response to this warning was the same response supported by anti-Patriot Act, terrorist supporting liberals today. They did nothing and allowed terrorists to live comfortably under the protection of our constitution, while plotting our death free of any fear of being questioned, investigated, or deported. To prevent something so “Islamophobic” and “racist” as sharing information about terrorist activities in the U.S., a wall of separation was created under Clinton that prohibited intelligence sharing with federal law enforcement. What it comes down to is, our country was put in danger, and ultimately attacked, to appease the anti-war, anti-American, ACLU supporting, PC crowd on the left.

    Jamie S. Gorelick can take much of the credit for the restrictions on intelligence sharing, yet she is one of the members of the 9/11 commission tasked with investigating pre-9/11 intelligence failures. Gorelick used her position to protect her previous boss and the commission cooperated in withholding information from the American public that would have exposed the danger we are still putting ourselves in by listening to the terrorists at the ACLU and their leftist minions. The mentality that says we can’t use racial profiling to identify terrorists and we can only preserve our freedoms by allowing terrorists to operate freely within our own borders is provably dangerous and it was the job of the 9/11 Commission to shine a light on such ideology and the policies that sprang from it.

    There should be consequences for putting politics before the safety and lives of the American public. It’s high time aiding the enemy and endangering the American public through the abuse of power became a crime again. I also think we can point out once again to the left that, when a President spends more time with interns than he does on intelligence briefings, bad things happen.

    Online commentators are taking aim at the 9/11 commission for its failure to include in its report that intelligence officials reportedly ID’d hijack ringleader Mohamed Atta as part of an al-Qaida cell in the U.S. over a year before the September 11 tragedy, saying the panel was acting politically instead of factually.

    One commentator specifically points his finger at former Clinton staffer Jamie Gorelick, a member of the panel who has been accused in the past of acting to protect her ex-boss from any political fallout of the commission’s work.

    Members of the commission now are calling for a review of the matter, saying they knew nothing about a classified military intelligence unit known as “Able Danger” identifying Atta and three of his accomplices in 1999. The information was shared publicly this week by Rep. Curt Weldon, R-Pa. vice chairman of the House Armed Services and Homeland Security committees. . . . .
