Hamas is so angry with the Arab League which met in Cairo for giving Abbas the green light to engage in peace talks with Israel that today they fired a Grad rocket into Ashkelon, Portland, Oregon's sister city, which sits 7 miles from Gaza and contains 125,000 people. It crashed into a residential area and hit cars and an apartment complex. Several people are suffering from shock and had to be treated.
Last week they shot 4 Quassam rockets and 2 mortar shells into the Negev.
Hamas said it was their political sin to pass this decision. The Aza Din al-Kassem Gazan Terror Group claim responsibility.

The Audacity of Hope from America is getting ready to sail
An initiative is under way to add an American ship to the effort to break the IDF blockade of Gaza.The vessel, to be named The Audacity of Hope after US President Barack Obama’s best-selling book, is being organized by an American group called “US Boat to Gaza.” It is expected to sail in the fall.The links to Obama do not end there. Prof. Rashid Khalidi, director of the Middle East Institute at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs, and a friend from Obama’s time in Chicago, is among the supporters of an appeal launched by the group last week.
This news was also shown on Fox News today. I wonder if it made other news stations. People are always pooh-poohing Fox News, but then I never see news about Israel on other stations unless a huge crisis is happening. Thank goodness for websites that confirm what I see on Fox News.
I think this is the height of chutzpa. Khalidi is a Palestinian and friend of Obama. I wonder what will happen now if Israel has to intervene once again and board this ship.

Commenting on Mort Zuckerman's viewpoint of a two state solution
Friday, July 23, 2010
Israel held their own inquiry, not trusting the U.N. to do so fairly due to the last Goldman report on the Gazan : Operation Cast Lead when Israel after taking 6 years of constant attacks turned around and went into Gaza militarily but was reprehended by this South African Jewish judge from the United Nations.
The United Nations, however, is continuing to hold another inquiry with prosecutor De Silva speaking for them. I have a very strong feeling that it will not be fair or honest. The United Nations is top-heavy with Arabs.
I note that North Korea recently sunk a South Korean ship. This act killed 46 sailors. The United States is having a four-day drill starting on Sunday, and this is Friday. We have been threatened by North Korea. All that I see done to North Korea are sanctions. Are there any UN investigations on them?

King David's old empire of bible days has been reinstituted in a tiny section of it known as the state of Israel. After 2,000 years of patience, hard work and near extinction, Israel was born in 1948 as the world's only Jewish state. By September 5, 1972, Israelis attended and participated in the Munich Olympics, a sport event taken from the Greek Olympics. However, because our state and athletes were Jews, a Palestinian terror organization, Black September, kidnapped and murdered 11 of the athletes and coaches. Oudeh, or Abu Daoud, planned the attack and was never remorseful for it. He just died before his 70th birthday.
Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Fatah group honors and glorifies this Daoud as a Palestinian hero and role model. This is not the first terrorist who has killed Israeli citizens who has been honored by Fatah. Abbas has expressed pride in training Hezbollah terrorists, sent greeting to Palestinian terrorists in Israeli prisons and funded a computer center named after Dalal Mughrabi where 37 Israeli civilians were killed.
Fatah honors killers of Israelis and yet expects to be Israel's neighbor. What sort of neighborliness can I expect to see from this close association? This is who Obama is pushing at Israel. Netanyahu is expected to negotiate with this person.
Israel just altered the Gazan blockade allowing in just about everything except articles that can be used against Israel, yet Hamas makes no bones about wanting Israel wiped off the map which has been their stand from the get go, before Israel had to create a blockade. Israel is always the one to give without receiving any promises in return, or promises that are valid, anyway.
Has there been a turnaround preparing Palestinians living in Judea and Samaria to be good neighbors to Israel? Has there been any type of programs of inducing people to get along, or any change in their educational program such as books to show something other than hatred which they now have? Abbas, as a role model, is showing the very opposite in glorifying these killers. That wouldn't get him an invite to my house.
Comment: 6pm Tuesday evening: Netanyahu even commented to Obama today that a political settlement of peace, coupled with security and prosperity "requires that the Palestinian Authority prepare its people for peace--school, textbooks, and so on."
Speaking about Christian evangelicals helping Jews with their grapes in Samaria, Palestinians got into a fight with them and said this about it, "“These people are filled with ideas that this is the Promised Land and their duty is to help the Jews,” said Izdat Said Qadoos of the neighboring Palestinian village. “It is not the Promised Land. It is our land.” There is much history to explain to these Palestinians.

I see that Netanyahu wants direct talks with Abbas and is going to Washington to talk to Obama once again. Abbas now wants to talk about the borders and security. That's a new pitch. What I understand that Fatah wants is all of Jerusalem, so I suppose that his idea of a border will encompass our capital and all of Judea and Samaria. Information is that they want their side to be free of all Jews. This is going to be some very interesting but short talk. The last thing I want to see is Israel losing Jerusalem or any of the Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria. We have over one million Arab citizens in Israel. I think Abbas can live with our Jewish population if he tries hard enough.
Fatah wants everything right now. They're been fighting against Israel for 62 years but now they have decided they want a state and want it right now and they want what they want or else. So far they haven't comprimised on anything so what is in the works now?
Besides that, what are they going to do about Hamas? Hamas wants Israel gone, period. Are they suddenly going to take leadership from Abbas? Are we just to deal with Fatah?
To show faith in what kind of neighbors Hamas and Fatah will be, this is the type of hype they are now spreading. "Mufti of Palestinian Authority, Muhammad Hussein: "The Al-Aqsa Mosque is threatened by the plans of the enemies of Allah (the Jews), who have violated all faith and religious laws and even deviated from their humanity." The Muslims have created libels of all sorts about this Mosque with the latest picture of a Jewish man eating the mosque. The site that includes the mosque (along with the Dome of the Rock) is also referred to as al-Haram ash-Sharif or "Sacred Noble Sanctuary", a site also known as the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism, the place where the First and Second Temples are generally accepted to have stood. Widely considered as the third holiest site in Islam, Muslims believe that Muhammad was transported from the Sacred Mosque in Mecca to al-Aqsa during the Night Journey on a white horse.
Before any agreements should be made by Israel, they should get the Palestinians to agree to stop feeding their people lies about Jews and about Israel's history. I spoke with a friend who found out that the Arabs have no idea of the history of the Jews with Jerusalem. They are almost in shock when they find out. No peace will come about when one side is spoon-fed such continuing lies.
I also have a plan. I think that we should make a trade with Iraq. In Iraq are the Kurds who really deserve to have their own state. They also are the closest to Jews through dna of any other peoples. "Shortly before war ended in 1988, the Iraqi Kurdish village of Halabja was exposed to multiple chemical agents, killing about 5,000 of the town's 50,000 residents . After the incident, traces of mustard gas and the nerve agents sarin, tabun and VX were discovered." They still live in want and are treated as less than 3rd class citizens. The Kurds could be Israel's neighbors and let the Hamas and Fatah people go live where they have been in Iraq. Then they can be altogether again. Let Iraq deal with them. There have been large shifts of populations before. I think this would be a very intelligent one.

Ummm… does he realize that this is how most Bedouin’s CHOOSE to live? In most cases, they do NOT own the land on which they place their “ramshackle tents and huts”. They are squatters! (referring to Kristof's first example).
