Why a two state solution is not a possible solution to the Israeli vs 'Palestinians' conflict



Pat Condell pretty much nailing it there.


But in case you need some proof, here's Fatah leader Abbas Zaki explaining Fatah policy on Israel very clearly in 2011...



Fatah leader Abbas Zaki speaks on Palestinian Authority television about "the great goal," referring to the goal of destroying Israel. He explains that it is impossible to achieve the "goal in one stroke," but that it would be "great" if Israel were "remove[d] from existence." He goes on to explain that this is not "a [stated] policy" and "you can't say it to the world."

This is a clear of example of the duplicity of PA leaders, who adhere to one position when speaking to foreign audiences, claiming to be seeking peace, but uphold a different position when speaking in Arabic, denying Israel's right to exist and educating the Palestinian people for continued conflict. This video indicates that Fatah may not intend to seriously work towards peace.

Transcipt:
"The agreement is based on the borders of June 4. While the agreement is on the borders of June 4, the President [Mahmoud Abbas] understands, we understand, and everyone knows that it is impossible to realize the inspiring idea, or the great goal in one stroke. If Israel withdraws from Jerusalem, if Israel uproots the settlements, 650,000 settlers, if Israel removes the (security) fence - what will be with Israel? Israel will come to an end. If I say that I want to remove it from existence, this will be great, great, [but] it is hard. This is not a [stated] policy. You can't say it to the world. You can say it to yourself."
[Al-Jazeera, Sept. 23, 2011]


Going back a little through history there are plenty of example of Palestinian leaders exposing their true intentions and admissions but the Western media, especially the BBC, are so anti-Israel that they just won't report such admissions.

How about the PLO leader Yasser Arafat, speaking on Jordanian TV on the same day that he signed the Declaration of Principles on the White House lawn in 1993:

“Since we cannot defeat Israel in war, we do this in stages. We take any and every territory that we can of Palestine, and establish a sovereignty there, and we use it as a springboard to take more. When the time comes, we can get the Arab nations to join us for the final blow against Israel.”
 Could that be any clearer? Have the BBC ever reported that admission?


 Even further back, on March 31, 1977, the Dutch newspaper Trouw published an interview with Palestine Liberation Organization executive committee member Zahir Muhsein. Here’s what he said:

'The Palestinian people does not exist. The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against the state of Israel for our Arab unity. 
In reality today there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese. Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak today about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab national interests demand that we posit the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.

For tactical reasons, Jordan, which is a sovereign state with defined borders, cannot raise claims to Haifa and Jaffa, while as a Palestinian, I can undoubtedly demand Haifa, Jaffa, Beer-Sheva and Jerusalem. However, the moment we reclaim our right to all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.'

Any room for doubt? No, but the BBC will continue to support the 'Palestinian' lies because the BBC is institutionally anti-Israel.

Miley Cyrus demonstrating what camel-toe is - A Friday Night Rule 5 Post


From the 2013 MTV EMA Awards Ceremony in Amsterdam.

“when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4)

“when you meet the unbelievers, strike the necks” (Qur’an 47:4)

In case you were wondering why Islamists seem so keen on beheading kufr...

Only a small minority...?

Over and over again the general public of this country and others in the West are assured by our politicians and media that it is only a small minority of Muslims that are not peaceful followers of 'The Religion of Peace'. Many people believe this because they want to believe it.

The trouble is that poll after poll shows this position to be untrue. I've blogged about this before, showing the Pew opinion polls that reveal what Palestinians really think about Israel and Jews, results that institutionally anti Israel news organisations such as the BBC never ever report. Brainwashing the public that Israel is evil, racist and war loving, whilst the Palestinians are peace loving innocents can only succeed if the truth is withheld from the public you're trying to brainwash.

Opinion polls in the West that try to discover what Western Muslims think are less common but no less scary, and thus no less well reported.

I found this American report on a 2006 NOP poll carried out for Channel 4 that shares the bejesus out of me.
'The results from NOP Research, broadcast by Channel 4-TV on August 7, are startling. 
Forty-five percent say 9/11 was a conspiracy by the American and Israeli governments. This figure is more than twice as high as those who say it was not a conspiracy. Tragically, almost one in four British Muslims believe that last year's 7/7 attacks on London were justified because of British support for the U.S.-led war on terror.
When asked, "Is Britain my country or their country?" only one in four say it is. Thirty percent of British Muslims would prefer to live under Sharia (Islamic religious) law than under British law. According to the report, "Half of those who express a preference for living under Sharia law say that, given the choice, they would move to a country governed by those laws." 
Twenty-eight percent hope for the U.K. one day to become a fundamentalist Islamic state. This comports with last year's Daily Telegraph newspaper survey that found one-third of British Muslims believe that Western society is decadent and immoral and that Muslims should seek to end it. 
The news is no less alarming on the question of freedom of speech. Seventy-eight percent support punishment for the people who earlier this year published cartoons featuring the Prophet Mohammed. Sixty-eight percent support the arrest and prosecution of those British people who "insult Islam." When asked if free speech should be protected, even if it offends religious groups, 62 percent of British Muslims say No, it should not. 
Also concerning freedom of speech, as the NOP Research survey reports, "hardcore Islamists" constitute nine percent of the British Muslim population. A slightly more moderate group is composed of "staunch defenders of Islam." This second group comprises 29 percent of the British Muslim population. Individuals in this group aggressively defend their religion from internal and external threats, real or imagined. 
The scary reality is that only three percent of British Muslims "took a consistently pro-freedom of speech line on these questions." The Muslim threat to British security is so severe that the assistant London police commissioner, Tarique Ghaffur, has called for an inquiry into the radicalization of young Muslims. Ghaffur sadly describes "a generation of angry young people vulnerable to exploitation." '
28% of British Muslims in 2006 hope for the UK to become a fundamentalist Islamic State.
"hardcore Islamists" constitute nine percent of the British Muslim population. A slightly more moderate group is composed of "staunch defenders of Islam." This second group comprises 29 percent of the British Muslim population. Individuals in this group aggressively defend their religion from internal and external threats, real or imagined. 
28%, 9%, 29%... 38% doesn't seem like a small minority to me. It seems like a very scary amount of people indeed.

Ebola, so what? It won't affect me...

Ebola, so what? It won't affect me... I've actually heard people say this; shocking I know.

Well Ebola will affect you. I'm willing to bet that jihadi terrorists are even now trying to find a way of getting the Ebola virus into Europe and the USA.

But apart from that, The Ivory Coast, which produces about 1.6 million metric tons of cacao beans per year (approximately 33% of the world’s total) closed its borders with Guinea and Liberia in August. Next door to Ivory Coast is Ghana, the world’s third-largest producer of cacao beans, 879,348 metric tons per year (approximately 15 percent of the world’s total).

If production, or rather safe distribution, of cacao beans is threatened then prices will rise and so will the price of chocolate...

Is the BBC 'imaprtial'?

'The BBC has to be impartial' and it 'broadly is' - so says the new Chairman of the BBC Trust, Rona Fairhead.

Hmm...




Various acting/former BBC staff have made comments that would seem to disagree including:"Today" reporter Robin Aitken; "Panorama" producer Gerard Baker; former "Newsnight" reporter Joan Bakewell; former director of news Helen Boaden; former "Feedback" presenter Roger Bolton; "The Moral Maze" presenter Michael Buerk; "Top Gear" presenter Jeremy Clarkson; former "Newsnight" political editor Michael Crick; documentary presenter Sebastian Foulks; former diplomatic correspondent Freddie Forsyth; "Woman's Hour" presenter Jane Garvey; director-general Tony Hall; former "Panorama" producer Steve Hewlett; former director of news Peter Horrocks; former "Panorama" producer Anthony Jay; director of editorial policy and standards David Jordan; former documentaries commissioning editor Richard Klein; former "Today" editor Rod Liddle; former "Today" editor Tim Luckhurst; former "Good Morning Sunday" presenter Don Maclean; Radio 2 presenter Simon Mayo; former political editor Andrew Marr; former "Today" editor Roger Mosey; former BBC governor Dame Neville-Jones; former "One Man And His Dog" presenter Robin Page; former "Newsnight" presenter Jeremy Paxman; former news producer Nick Pollard; former business editor Jeff Randall; political editor Nick Robinson; former "Crimewatch" presenter Nick Ross; former "Talking Politics" presenter Dennis Sewell; former head of current affairs Samir Shah; former news anchor Peter Sissons; former director-general Mark Thompson; "Today" presenter Justin Webb; former Online science editor David Whitehouse; and creative director Alan Yentob.

Is the BBC 'impartial'? I think we know the answer to that - and it's NO.

Arabic speaker required to translate a Yusuf Islam track

Tonight's BBC Radio 4 Front Row interview with Yusuf Islam, formerly Cat Stevens, was the sort of gushy interview that one would expect from the BBC when faced with an anti Imperialist Muslim 'artist'. 

But one part struck me as rather odd. The interviewer, Samira Ahmed, asked about his reworking of "You are my sunshine", and made reference to the Arabic added in his version of this 'all American folk-song'.

Yusuf Islam says about his Malian group "They tried to mirror the words, you know, "You are my sunshine" but they did it in a slightly more personal way." 

Then Samira Ahmed made a very odd little, what sounded to to me rather conspiratorial, giggle; as though she knew what the Arabic meant.

Maybe we should all know... Anybody speak Arabic and are willing to listen to some Yusuf Islam?

Disabled Labour delegate asked to move to make way for party's 'bright young things'

The caring side of the Labour Party on show...
'A disabled Labour Party member claims she and others were ejected from their reserved seats in order to make room for "bright young things" at the party's conference in Manchester on Tuesday.
Bernadette Horton, a 47-year-old Labour Party member who cannot walk without crutches, fell over after conference organisers made her and two other partially disabled individuals move from their reserved seats.

Ms Horton, who has been a Labour Party member for three years, said: "The way we were treated by a party that sets itself up for the most vulnerable was appalling."'

More in The Independent here but definitely not on the BBC, where 'vote Labour' is the ever present clarion call and where the real story is what Lord Freud said, context free of course.

The BBC's attitude to sexual abuse during the 1990s

Per Paul Merton's autobiography as reported in The Telegraph:
"I heard about him (Dave Lee Travis) 20 years ago. A technician somewhere told me that there was a rule at the BBC: Don't leave him alone with a woman."
If the BBC knew about Dave Lee Travis's pecadillos but did nothing to stop him, let alone report him to the police, then are they not also guilty of an offence?

One of Israel's main satellite TV providers has opted to drop the world-famous British Broadcasting Corporation from its line-up of channels

i24 informs me that:
'One of Israel's main satellite TV providers has opted to drop the world-famous British Broadcasting Corporation from its line-up of channels, Israeli media reported Friday.

The YES satellite company announced it would no longer host BBC World, as the channel enjoys low ratings in Israel as a consequence of being perceived to harbor anti-Israeli bias.

...

"Customer satisfaction with the channel is low..."'
How unsurprising, now how do we opt out of receiving institutionally anti-Israel news from the BBC in this country?

Bad News for the alarmists: 'Missing Heat' from Non-Existent 'Global Warming' isn't Hiding in the Ocean After All

'The cause of climate alarmism has been struck another near-fatal blow by a new study from a NASA research team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
 
Using a combination of satellite observations and direct measurements taken by a network of 3,000 floating Argo temperature probes, the NASA team set out to calculate temperature changes and thermal expansion in the deep ocean (below 1.24 miles).
 
What they have found is that the deep ocean has not warmed measurably since at least 2005.
This unfortunate discovery represents a major problem for the climate alarmists because the "missing heat" supposedly hiding in the deep oceans has long been their favoured explanation as to why there has been no measured "global warming" for the last 18 years.'

Some Poor Egyptian Girls Have Been Married 60 Times By The Time They Turn 18

The reality of child sex abuse in Egypt.
'... some girls who grow up in Egypt's poor rural communities face an even scarier sort of child marriage: the temporary kind. Sex tourism to Egypt tends to spike in the summer, when wealthy men from Gulf countries flood into Egypt and thousands of underage girls are sold by their parents into temporary "marriages," according to a story by Inter Press Service.

Child sex tourism is difficult to track, but the United Nations estimates that it affects two million children every year, often in countries that are poor but have preexisting tourism infrastructure, such as Thailand, India, Costa Rica and others.

Egypt's illegal child sex tourism trade appears to have put a regional-friendly spin on the practice by portraying the buying and selling of children as a form of marriage, thus giving them a thin veneer of religious acceptability by circumventing Islamic rules against pre-marital sex. (Despite a 2008 law banning child marriages, enforcement is thought to be low and an Egyptian official told the Inter Press Service that's it's nearly ceased since the chaos of the 2011 revolution.) Child marriages are, after all, somewhat common in Arab countries, although not nearly as common as in neighboring regions. And such child marriages often involve "dowries" that human trafficking activists say are akin to a purchase price.

By making the unions temporary, Egyptian child sex tourism manages to capture much of the worst of child marriage and child prostitution. Girls still bear the long-term risks of child marriages – some are expected to double as domestic workers – as well as the routines of children sold for sex in other countries. "Some girls have been married 60 times by the time they turn 18," an Egyptian government official who works on the issue told Inter Press Service. "Most 'marriages' last for just a couple of days or weeks."'

Are you wondering why the BBC's usual anti-Conservative reporting has become that much more aggressive in recent days?

Are you wondering why the BBC's usual anti-Conservative reporting has become that much more aggressive in recent days?

The reason is that David Cameron's Conservative Party Conference speech was so well received, especially the part about cutting taxes that the Labour Party had a familiar panic. The BBC so often fulfils the role of the Labour Party's propaganda arm that it upped the anti-Conservative coverage. The BBC seem obsessed by how the Conservatives will fund the tax cut, I don't remember the BBC similarly asking the Labour Party how they would fund their reckless rise in public spending 1999-2007.

With news that the latest YouGov Poll shows the Conservative party with a small (1 point) lead in the main question for the first time since 21012, you can expect the BBC's coverage to become more virulently anti-Conservative.

As an aside I thought that I'd see how long it took the BBC to update their Poll Tracker with this latest Poll. It looks as though it might be quite some time as the last poll that that page includes is the Populus poll of 6 May 2014. The BBC are almost five months behind on updating that useful tool.



To be fair the BBC are developing a new Poll Tracker, well they say they are but that project seems to have stalled and reports data no later than 2013.


So there we have it, a BBC virulently biased against the Conservative Party and so incompetent that it can't update a simple database. Remind me why we all have to fund this biased and obscene waste of money?

"Goal is end of Israel, but "you can't say that to…"


Fatah leader Abbas Zaki explains Fatah policy on Israel very clearly. Don't expect the institutionally anti Israel BBC to ever report such comments. 


Fatah leader Abbas Zaki speaks on Palestinian Authority television about "the great goal," referring to the goal of destroying Israel. He explains that it is impossible to achieve the "goal in one stroke," but that it would be "great" if Israel were "remove[d] from existence."

Why do so many Islamists choose beheading as their favoured way of killing?

In the last few years it seems as though few news reports from Syria, Iraq or other places where Islamic terrorists are wreaking havoc (or indeed on attacks on British soldiers on the streets of London or incidents of 'workplace violence' in America) are complete without mentioning that the victims were beheaded.

Why do so many Islamist terrorists choose beheading as their favoured method of killing?

Let's see...
1. Koran 5:33 'The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter.'

2. Koran 8:12 'I (Allah) will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off.'

3. Koran 47:4 'Therefore, when ye meet the Unbelievers (in fight), strike off their heads; at length; then when you have made wide Slaughter among them, carefully tie up the remaining captives...'

Oh I see.

Finally a useful font... The Sarcastic Font

For too long e-mails, instant messages, web pages and documents have been unable to fully communicate the subtleties of sarcasm. Text delivered without intonation fail to represent the rare form of language where the intended meaning is the opposite of the written word.
Over the internet we yell at each other with ALL CAPS and emphasize with bold and italics, but where is sarcasm? Where is the nuance, the elegance? We say it is time for a change. It's time for a revolution. It's time for a new font style!
  • Bold

The BBC letting slip why social cohesion is better in Japan than in Europe and other Western countries

In a BBC articleabout Japanese autumnal oddities, comes this paragraph:
'It's often been said that Japan operates via strict social norms to achieve its remarkable social cohesion and that this is largely responsible for making Japan such a pleasant place to live. There are no bins at the beaches, nor on the streets. By and large, Japanese people take their rubbish home with them. Just one example of the positive benefits of this cohesion.'
That and very limited third world immigration...

'On July 13, the Gaza Ministry of Health announced the death of 14-year old Hussein Abdelkader Muheisen, who died of his wounds suffered a few days earlier.

It was published in a number of Arabic sites, including Palestine Today.

His death was not mentioned by PCHR.

Today, Palestine Today celebrates the young man, who actually was 24 years old:'

An interesting choice of photo by the BBC

The BBC report that:
'A man in Oklahoma has beheaded one woman and wounded another after being fired from his job, police have said.

Alton Nolen, 30, attacked the two women at Vaughan Foods distribution plant in Moore, Oklahoma, on Thursday afternoon.

A manager who is also a reserve police officer stopped the attack by shooting and injuring Mr Nolen.

A police spokesman said the FBI was investigating Mr Nolen's background, after colleagues said he had recently tried to convert them to Islam.'

They illustrate the story with this photo of Alton Nolen
Why would this chap behead someone?


The BBC decided not to choose one of these more recent photos of Alton Nolen...


I wonder why? Actually I think I know why.


Do you?

The BBC, shamelessly hiding the truth from the British and world public.

Alan Bennett in the strangest and sweariest video I can imagine - NSFW

I've posted the wonderful 'This Be The Verse' by Philip Larkin before, but it's worth repeating:
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.   
    They may not mean to, but they do.   
They fill you with the faults they had
    And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
    By fools in old-style hats and coats,   
Who half the time were soppy-stern
    And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
    It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
    And don’t have any kids yourself.
Now I've found this piece of Alan Bennett; wonderful, but very NSFW

No One Listened to Rotherham’s Sex Gang Whistleblower | VICE

'In February 2006, a serious assault on Lauren, a 16-year-old girl, sickened Cole. He filed a witness statement to the police, which claimed that an Asian man had tried to force Lauren to give oral sex to one of the gang and she had refused. He recalled, "She spat in his face and he ordered the gang to assault her in retaliation".

Lauren was beaten senseless. According to the report, she was cornered between a marble screen and revolving door by four Asian men and a white lad. She had no escape. As one punched her in the face, another was kicking her in the body. When the first two had finished, the white male "went in and punched her in the face and threw her to the floor". Another male dragged Lauren off the floor and sent her crashing down again – rendering her unconscious. He then stamped on her face. A further male then entered the fray, and continued to kick and punch the motionless young girl.

Cole said, "I thought they were going to kill her. We had it all on CCTV and it was very, very clear. I begged her to speak to the police" who arrived at the scene 45 minutes later. Lauren's attackers were all known to police and security staff, yet no prosecution followed. Cole explained, "I don't know if it was because she was intimidated, or scared or just blasé. I tried to explain to her that males don't have the authority to do this kind of shit." But it seems that in Rotherham, they did. The victim didn't speak to the police. Cole says that months after the incident occurred, police returned the recording to the CCTV operator who accidentally dropped it – and then stood on it destroying important evidence of the gang's activities.'

What was happening in Rotherham was evil, but that's what happens when political correctness and especially the fear of being called a racist becomes more important than doing the right thing. 

You can read more here at Vice.com but probably not on the BBC where political correctness is still king and the truth a very very poor second, or maybe third.

Mathematical incompetence at the BBC

The BBC's report on the first day of the Ryder Cup includes this:
'The US won the opening foursomes session 2½-1½ but Europe surged back to clinch the fourballs 3½-1½ to take the overnight advantage.'
There are four points available in each half of the first two days, one per match. So how can the fourballs garner a total of five points. That's the trouble with employing a load of Arts graduates...

Liverpool delete Jewish new year tweet following antisemitic messages

The Guardian report that:
'Liverpool have deleted a tweet wishing their Jewish supporters a happy new year after it was met with a series of antisemitic messages on the club's official account.

The club marked Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish new year in the Hebrew calendar, with a tweet on Friday that read: "Liverpool FC would like to wish all our Jewish supporters around the world a happy new year. #RoshHashanah". However, the tweet was removed several hours later.'

Of course it's the vile and biased anti Israel coverage by the BBC and it's partners at the BBC that have exacerbated anti Semitic sentiments in this country. That and the massive rise in the Muslim population in the UK.

Ed Miliband forgot, how convenient or maybe revealing!

Labour aides said the Labour leader forgot to deliver key parts of his speech to the Labour Party conference - the key parts were those in which he was to promise to "deal with our nation's debts" and another on immigration.

Ed Miliband forgot? Maybe he did, in which case do we want someone that forgetful as Prime Minister? What might he forget if he was Prime Minister?

Ed Miliband forgot? Maybe he did or maybe he has tried to be clever as by 'forgetting' he didn't have to address the enormous National debt and the deliberately massive rise in uncontrolled immigration that were two parts of the legacy of the last Labour government in which he and Ed Balls played such a large part.

Forgot?

Miliband a great original?

Ed Miliband nicked his opening joke from Tony Blair's speech to the Labour Party conference in 2006, almost word for word. Then Blair said:
"I know I look a lot older. That's what being leader of the Labour Party does to you. Actually, looking round some of you look a lot older."
This year Ed Miliband said:
"Since I was here 4 years ago, I feel wiser. I feel older. A lot older! But hang on, some of you lot look older too."
Is Ed Miliband lazy or his script writers?

Scottish referendum: Gordon Brown vows 'powers will be delivered' - BBC News

The BBC report that:
'Gordon Brown has said the promises made ahead of the Scottish independence referendum on change and further devolution will be delivered.

The former prime minister said it was time to move from the "battleground to the common ground" after a majority in Scotland voted "No" to leaving the UK.

He added: "We will lock in today the promises that we have made".'
No we won't. The English are sick and tired of paying the Scots to keep them quiet, especially as they moan anyway. Why should they get the Barnett Formula bribe, especially as the architect of that scheme has admitted that it is out of date?

Why should the English, and in reality I mean those from London and the South East of England, subsidise a load of ungrateful Scots? Not just because Gordon Brown has said so, and the Labour Party needs the votes of Scottish Labour MPs. The West Lothian Question needs answering, the English need freedom.

UK jobless rate falls to lowest level since 2008 but the BBC must point out an only tangential piece of bad news

The BBC report here through gritted teeth that:
'The unemployment rate fell to 6.2% over the three months to the end of July, its lowest level since 2008, official figures show.

The number of jobless people fell by 146,000 to 2.02 million over the quarter, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) reported.

Those claiming Jobseeker's Allowance in August fell below one million for the first time in six years.'
But the BBC can't allow there to be good economic news under a non Labour government, so the following rubric is there as usual:
'But average weekly earnings still lagged way behind inflation.'
I don't recall any good economic news under the Blair / Brown mis-government being automatically qualified by a piece of bad news. But then the BBC's subtext for UK news is always 'vote Labour'.

UN brokers agreement to rebuild in Gaza Strip - BBC News

The BBC manage to finally report here that the proportion of civilian deaths in the recent Israel Hamas conflict in Gaza is disputed. The wording of the comment makes it clear on which side the BBC stand:
'The UN says the vast majority of Palestinian deaths are civilian but an Israeli government official recently told the BBC that the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) had killed 1,000 "terrorists" during the assault on Gaza.'
There is still no mention of where the UN is getting its figures from but I expect no better from the institutionally anti Israel BBC.

Barack Obama the man whose reputation must be preserved at all costs! What the hell is going on here?

I did find this less damning video


and this one

Barack Obama and his time at Columbia University

Did Barack Obama go to Columbia University, if so why does nobody remember him? Is the story 'rancid'?



'I just returned from New York, where I attended my 30th Columbia University reunion. I celebrated with my esteemed classmates. Everyone except Barack Obama. As usual- he wasn't there. Not even a video greeting. Not a personalized letter to his classmates. Nothing. But worse, no one I met at our 30th reunion ever met him. The President of the United States is the ghost of Columbia University.'

It's an odd story but not one that the US mainstream media or the BBC would ever investigate.

The key queston is why are Barack Obama's college records still sealed?

Home - BBC News - Keeping the hatred of Israel front and centre

My first view of the BBC news each day comes from the BBC mobile news site http://m.bbc.com/news and after the big news items comes the 'Features & Analysis' section where articles sit for a day or so before disappearing. Today the articles are these:
'Symbol of evil' - Should a ruined church linked to Hitler be rebuilt? 
Amid the rubble - Life in a razed Gaza neighbourhood
Kissing crime - Actress detained after smooching white beau 
Election time, again - Is New Zealand's political cycle too short?
Cleavage row - Why Bollywood stars are lashing out against sexism 
Your Martian home - Is this how the cities of Mars will be built?
Global rankings - What are the world's best universities? 
Touch screen learning - How Africa's first education tablet computer was created
Punishment and abuse - Questions about parenting and race in US footballer's arrest

Yes the ' Life in a razed Gaza neighbourhood' article is still there. The institutionally anti Israel BBC apparently likes to have an article or more raising the hatred of Israel, and consequently Jews, on their news pages.

Scottish independence: Cameron, Miliband and Clegg sign 'No' vote pledge - BBC News

The BBC report that:
'The leaders of the three main parties at Westminster have signed a pledge to devolve more powers to Scotland, if Scots reject independence.The pledge, which appears on the front of the Daily Record newspaper, has been signed by David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg.It has three parts and also commits to preserving the Barnett funding formula.'

Not without the explicit support of the English who'll have to pay for it. Not without answering the West Lothian Question.

The BBC and Gaza

The BBC's institutionally anti Israel coverage was on show during the Israel Hamas conflict in Gaza.
Hence the campaign to:

Modify the BBC Gaza boilerplate "on the Palestinian side more than [whatever is their current claim] have been killed, the majority of them civilians" to "Hamas sources claim [whatever is their current claim] have been killed, the majority of them civilians. However Israeli sources strenuously contest this claim as to both the total number and the percentage of those killed who can be claimed to be civilian".

Just leave the goat alone...



Thisfootage is allegedly from an IDF drone or plane of Palestinians raping a goat...

Gaza: Life amid the rubble - BBC News

The conflict in Gaza is over, for the moment, whilst Hamas re-stock with weapons. So it's time for the BBC to get the poor Palestinians front and centre in the British mind and so, purely incidentally of course, raise anti Semitism in the UK. 

This piece is odd as in order to illustrate how the evil Israelis have destroyed happy Palestinian lives they include lines like this:
'Teacher Abdul Karim Abu Ahmed, 55, says Shejaiya used to be a beautiful district and that he was proud to live here. He had a big house with a garden that he shared with his wife and 11 children, aged seven to 25, but it was shattered in the bombardment.'
A 'beautiful district', 'a big house with a garden'? But the BBC keep telling us that Gaza is an open air prison, a concentration camp, one of the most overcrowded places on earth.... 

Both can't be true...

The BBC report that Merkel to speak in Berlin against anti-Semitism

The BBC report that:
' German Chancellor Angela Merkel is to speak at a mass rally against anti-Semitism later, amid a sharp rise in attacks on Germany's Jews.

The event in Berlin comes 75 years after the outbreak of the World War Two, in which six million Jews were killed by Nazi Germany.Mrs Merkel has vowed to do everything she can "to ensure anti-Semitism doesn't have a chance".'

Of course as this is the institutionally anti Israel, and sometimes borderline anti Semitic BBC, they also add that:
'The surge in anti-Semitism follows the summer's conflict in Gaza.'

What the BBC should add is that it's their and other's blatantly anti Israel coverage of the conflict in Gaza that has exacerbated the rise in European anti Semitism, that and the increasing Muslim population in Europe.

Colonel Richard Kemp on the recent Israel Hamas conflict


Colonel Richard Kemp on the truth about Israel's actions in Gaza. 

The one hundred and ninety fourth weekly "No Shit Sherlock" award

AP have finally got around to reporting the obvious...
'Two weeks after the end of the Gaza war, there is growing evidence that Hamas militants used residential areas as cover for launching rockets at Israel, at least at times. '


Of course hell will freeze over before the BBC acknowledge this fact.

Background Conference Call on the President's Address to the Nation | The White House


'ISIL has been I think a galvanizing threat around the Sunni partners in the region.  They view it as an existential threat to them.  Saudi Arabia has an extensive border with Syria.'

'Saudi Arabia has an extensive border with Syria.'

Really? Are you sure? I'm pretty sure Egypt, Jordan and Iraq border Saudi Arabia to the east and north. Arguably Israel over water. But not Syria. If the Barack Hussein Obama White House has this poor a grasp of the geography of the Middle East, is it any wonder that they're so clueless with regards to policy? 

As an aside, if it had been a George W. Bush White House which had made this mistake or Sarah Palin's office then this would be being reported by the BBC and the Now Show would be lining up the satirical remarks, but as it's Barack Hussein Obama's White House, I think we can assume that there'll be no coverage at all.

How the world flips when Jews go to war

A very good article that should be read by every BBC 'journalist'... http://www.jpost.com/Blogs/Enemies-of-Zion/How-the-world-flips-when-Jews-go-to-war-374860
Here's an extract:
'As for Palestinians existing in Arab states, they  might as well not exist, so little do people think of them. In 1970, when the PLO threatened his throne, King Hussein of Jordan had no qualms about slaughtering thousands of Palestinians in "Black September." 

Six years later Lebanese militias, backed by the Syrians, massacred some 3,500 Palestinians in the Beirut camp of Tel Zaatar. 

The militias again slaughtered hundreds of Palestinians in 1982 in the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatila, then under the Israeli commander, Ariel Sharon's watchful eye. 

In the summer of 2007, the Lebanese army killed hundreds of Palestinians in the refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared. 

After the 1991 Persian Gulf War, Kuwaitis punished the PLO for its support of Saddam Hussein —cutting off support, expelling 440,000 Palestinian workers, and massacring them in their thousands. 

In 2013 the butcher of Syria, President Assad, starved hundreds of Palestinians to death in a refugee camp. And the world over people studied their fingernails.

To put this home truth into a handy formula: Muslim crimes on Palestinians are Muslim business. Palestinian crimes on Israelis are no one's business. Israeli crimes on Palestinians are everyone's business. '
Something for the institutionally anti-Israel BBC to ponder on?

Gordon Brown's fiscal profligacy finally outed – Telegraph Blogs

'... tax revenues were consistently falling short of spending from about 2002 onwards. These were mostly boom years economically, yet tax revenues repeatedly came in lower than the Government's optimistic, and apparently largely made up, forecasts for them. The fiscal rules were bent and manipulated to ensure compliance. For the five years from 2002/3 onwards, the Government consistently ran a budget deficit of between 2.5 and 3.5 per cent of GDP.

As a result overall government debt rose at a time when most industrialised countries were paying theirs down, leaving the UK peculiarly ill prepared, and with very little room for manoeuvre, when the crisis hit.

So please, no more talk about how everything would have been fine but for the recklessness of bankers. Government and finance were reckless together, it would seem, and boy what a mess their hubris has left behind.'

Top 9 Countries That Send Jihadists To Islamic State

'Which countries lead in contributing fighters to the Levant, particularly Iraq and Syria, might surprise you.

Using only official statements and credible reports, Business Insider has compiled data to show rising numbers of jihadists from each country:

France – 700
U.K. – 400
Germany – 320
Belgium – 250
Australia – 200
Netherlands – 130
Canada – 100
U.S. – 100
Spain – 51
 
But the numbers are believed to be much higher than confirmed, as high as 3,000 from the top 9 nations.

Per capita, however, Belgium is the biggest source of western ISIS recruits.'

Scottish independence: Pro-Union parties to back Scotland powers timetable - BBC News

The news http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-29113547 that British politicians from all Westminster parties are desperately promising to give Scotland even more preferential treatment so as to keep themthe in the Union does not please me. 

Maybe the English taxpayers, mostly from London and the South East of England, who will have to pay for this extra subsidy without having much, if any, of a say in how it is spent are tired of being told what to do by a load of Scottish MPs who vote on English and Welsh legislation without English MPs being able to vote on entirely Scottish legislation.

Germany's "Sharia Police"

A German town today, Britain tomorrow?
' Muslim radicals have begun enforcing Islamic Sharia law on the streets of Wuppertal, a city in North Rhine-Westphalia, the state with the largest Muslim population in Germany.
In what government officials say is a blatant challenge to the rule of law and the democratic order in Germany, groups of young bearded Islamists — some wearing orange traffic safety vests emblazoned with the words "Sharia Police" — have declared parts of downtown Wuppertal to be a "Sharia Controlled Zone."

The self-appointed guardians of public morals have been distributing yellow leaflets that explain the Islamist code of conduct in the city's Sharia zones. They have urged both Muslim and non-Muslim passersby to listen to Salafist sermons and to refrain from alcohol, cigarettes, drugs, gambling, listening to music, pornography or prostitution.

A seven-minute propaganda video in German, entitled "Sharia Police: Coming Soon to Your City," shows a group of men led by a German convert to Islam, Sven Lau, roaming the streets of Wuppertal at night and pressing wayward youth to embrace radical Islam. In some instances, the men physically attempted to prevent young people from entering bars, casinos and discotheques; those who resisted were pursued and intimidated.'

News about Gaza that you won't hear from the BBC

The BBC's coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian dispute long ago ceased to bear any resemblance to reality. The BBC's coverage is that which one would expect from an organisation that is institutionally anti-Israel. So two pieces of news that an unbiased news reporting organisation would report have not been reported by the BBC.

1. Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar told worshippers during a sermon he delivered during Friday prayers at Martyr Abdullah Azzam Mosque in Gaza City on 5 September.
In case you were wondering, Abdullah Azzam was a Palestinian 'scholar, teacher and mentor of Osama bin Laden. Azzam was killed in Pakistan in 1989.

"If only the West Bank had one quarter of what Gaza has of resistance tools, the Israeli entity would end in one day," Zahar declared, reiterating the claim that Hamas had scored a "big victory" in the war.

...

Those who were skeptical as to whether Palestine could be liberated are no longer doubtful after the enemy was hit from the Gaza Strip," Zahar said. "Can you imagine what would happen if the enemy is targeted from the West Bank, which makes up 20% of the size of Palestine?"

Zahar was quoted recently as saying that Hamas's goal now was to "move the Gaza example of resistance" to the West Bank.
The Iranians seem to agree that the time has come to turn the West Bank into a launching pad for attacks on Israel. During the war in the Gaza Strip, a senior Iranian commander of the Revolutionary Guard Corps, Mohamed Reza Naqdi, announced that Tehran had plans to "arm Palestinians in the West Bank" in order to destroy Israel.

Naqdi boasted that the weapons used by Hamas and other Palestinian groups during the recent war had been manufactured and supplied by Iran.

The threats by Hamas and Iran regarding the West Bank show why it is critically important for Israel (and the Palestinian Authority) to insist on the demilitarization of the Gaza Strip as part of any long-term cease-fire agreement.

Even more significantly, these threats underline the need to keep the West Bank a demilitarized area in any future peace agreement, especially one that would see the establishment of an independent and sovereign Palestinian state.

Moreover, these threats support Israel's insistence on maintaining permanent security control over the border with Jordan. Without such a presence, Iranian-made weapons would easily find their way into the West Bank.

What Hamas and Iran are saying is that if and when Israel pulls back to the pre-1967 lines, they, together with other Palestinians, would bring weapons into the West Bank to achieve their goal of eliminating the "Zionist entity."


A leader of Hamas openly calling for the destruction of Israel and setting out how this would be achieved, you can see why the institutionally anti-Israel BBC wouldn't report that.

Remind me again why Islam is known as the 'religion of peace'




3. There are many reports that the Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, has rejected an Egyptian proposal to resettle Palestinian refugees in a large tract of land in the Sinai Peninsula to be annexed to the Gaza Strip. 

Speaking to a gathering of his Fatah party in Ramallah Sunday, Abbas said that an unnamed senior Egyptian official recently approached him and suggested settling Palestinians in an area 1,600 square kilometers (618 square miles) large adjacent to Gaza, reviving an idea originally proposed by former Israeli national security adviser Giora Eiland.

A possible solution to the overcrowded Gaza strip, an area of land four times the size of Gaza itself. But why should the BBC report such an offer, the refusal of such an offer might lead people to believe that the Palestinians are less interested in peace with Israel than the destruction of the world's only Jewish majority state.

Palestinian Author Jihad Al-Rajabi: Blood of Mujahideen Makes Gaza Soil More Fertile...

Another Palestinian 'intellectual' talking peace...
' So I say: Oh Arabs, oh Muslims, if you want the Lord to provide for you, wage Jihad with your blood, because blood makes the land and soil more fertile. If you want to see trees heavy with fruit, go to Jabal Al-Rais and look at the lemon trees, which have been irrigated with the blood of mujahideen and martyrdom-seekers.'

"If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven"

Another Muslim, this time a Pakistani cricketer, seems to be 'misunderstanding' the Religion of Peace and Tolerance. Ahmed Shehzad was caught saying rather worrying things to the Sri Lanka cricketer Tillakaratne Dilshan:
"If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven."
Following Dilshan's inaudible reply, he added: "Then be ready for the fire."
