Israel Survival Updates — 19 February 2011.

Another day, another ‘nudge’ or fifty towards pending genocide.

Aftermath of The US veto of The UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel.

The story so far……

The United States has vetoed The UN resolution to condemn Israel.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) – The United States vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements as “illegal” and called for an immediate halt to all settlement building.

Then, it comes to light that……

UN Ambassador Susan Rice says The U.S. “regrettably” had to veto the measure.

US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Washington had “regrettably” chosen to oppose the resolution, sponsored by some 130 countries, after seeking its compromise measure was rejected.

Of course, we need to hear from the main players in the performance and we get that in a very long single article from The Jerusalem Post.

Palestinian officials express disappointment at US veto ; PM Netanyahu and Foreign Ministry say direct talks are only way to peace.

“The US veto does not serve the peace process and encourages Israel to continue constructing settlements and avoid its commitments in the peace process,” aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas Nabil Abu Rudeina said. “The veto will complicate matters in the Middle East.” Riyad Mansour, the Palestinian UN observer, called the US veto unfortunate, saying the Security Council failed to respond to the Israeli-Palestinian “crisis” and send “a clear and firm message to Israel that it must … cease all of its violations and its obstruction of the peace process. We fear…that the message sent today may be one that only encourages further Israeli intransigence and impunity,” he said.

“We seek a solution that will integrate the legitimate Palestinian aspirations with Israeli requirement of security and recognition,” Netanyahu said in a statement. “The US decision makes it clear that the only way to peace is through negotiations. We are ready to vigorously advance negotiations and are interested in beginning the process of achieving secure peace and hope that the Palestinians will join the process.”

Direct negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians has and will continue to be the only way to resolve the conflict between the two parties, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor said in a statement similar to Netanyahu’s. “The distance between Ramallah and Jerusalem is short, and all that is requested of the Palestinians is to return to the negotiating table without preconditions,” Palmor said. “Only in this way, and without appealing to the [United Nations] Security Council, can the peace process advance in favor of both parties, and in the favor of peace and security in the region.”

PM Netanyahu, here’s an unsolicited gift to you and the entire Israeli Knesset: “Palestinian aspirations” are to kill every Jew on the planet and destroy every vestige of Israel’s existence…… and they’re actually working towards those goals, with assistance too.

……and with a tip ‘o the hat, a fine cigar and a dram of old single malt to Lineholder, we find Hillary Clinton in an interview with ABC’s bestest-evah jihad supporter Christiane Amanpour saying flat out that the Israeli Settlements are ‘Illegitimate’.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Israeli settlements “illegitimate” shortly before the United States vetoed a United Nations Security Council resolution condemning continued Israeli settlement expansion as illegal.

The full Amanpour interview with Clinton — focusing on the uprisings in the Arab world, how the U.S. is redefining its strategic interests there and what she thinks this new Arab People Power means for the U.S. — will air Sunday on “This Week.”

I’m still supposed to stay toned down, remain civil and be respectful or be banned ?

Here’s today’s probably not the last and definitely not least regarding “Palestine”:

Palestinians are going to enjoy a ‘day of rage’ against America.

Now I’m confused. I thought that was every day, every waking hour and even whilst asleep.

Palestinian leaders called for a “day of rage” Saturday in the streets of West Bank cities after the US vetoed a UN condemnation of Israeli settlements Friday.

Yasser Abed Rabbo, secretary general of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), said the Palestinians would take their resolution to the UN General Assembly.

“Our decision today is to go to the General Assembly of the United Nations to adopt a resolution condemning settlements and asserting their illegality before returning to the Security Council to present a proposed condemnation of settlements,” he told AFP. “The American veto will not prevent us from appealing to international institutions and will not stop our desire for freedom and independence.”

Hey Palestinians, didn’t you get the memo ? The Obama administration is on your side.

See the articles and statements above if you don’t believe me.

They voted ‘no’ for the most convoluted of reasons available, because it was a yes or no thing and there was no “present” vote allowed.

Y’all have a nice day (of rage), ya hear ?

Be forewarned: This is extremely graphic video footage of people violently dying at the hands of their own government. View at your own risk.

Bahrain’s army shoots unarmed protesters.

Peaceful protesters were mowed down as they were walking, armed only with the national flag.

Peace-loving at it’s finest.

But everything’s peachy-keen now – overnight, it’s all good – because Bahrain ordered the military off the streets.

Troop removal comes after Shi’ite opposition says they will not carry out talks with Bahrain gov’t until “tanks are off the streets.”

MANAMA, Bahrain —The deputy chief of Bahrain’s armed forces ordered the military to withdraw from the streets of the capital.

Saturday’s decision came after the military opened fire on protesters trying to reach the site that was once the centerpiece of their uprising against the Gulf nation’s rulers.

Please remember, there are Saudi Arabian troops in Bahrain and our own Fifth Fleet is based in the nation.

U.K.

An article from The Daily Telegraph.

Britain revokes arms licences to Bahrain and Libya.

Britain said on Friday it was revoking more than 50 arms export licences for Bahrain and Libya where security forces have cracked down on protests and several people have been killed.

The revoked licences cover items such as tear gas and ammunition that could be used to suppress demonstrations.

Could be used…… Could be ?!?

Hey UK…… Thanks loads.

Really.

Nice to know you’ve outfitted the enemy of all civilization with ‘goodies’.

Egypt And The Iranian Naval Vessels.

Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no, yes, no……

It’s like a dime-store novel with a billion dollar and quite possibly genocidal ending.

Contradicting whatever went on about nine hours ago in the above link, the Egyptian military has NOT approved transit of 2 Iran ships.

An Egyptian source from the Suez Canal Authority said that the authority did not yet receive the military approval necessary to allow two Iranian naval vessels to cross the canal north to the Mediterranean, Reuters reported.

The source said that the two ships neither reached the southern entrance of the canal, nor the waiting area. The source added that the approval could be received at any moment.

State-run news agency MENA had said Friday that authorities in Egypt approved the request to let the navy ships cross, after Iranian diplomats offered assurances that the two ships won’t have weapons or nuclear or chemical material.

……”assurances that the two ships won’t have nucl……”

Taqyia: The legitimate use of lying, misdirection, cheating, subterfuge and more in order to advance Islam.

Hey, I’m just sayin’…… It’s in their book, look it up.

Don’t it just give ya the warm ‘n fuzzies ?

Fills you full of hope for change.

Look up in the sky. There’s that elusive magic prayer-rug-ridin’ rainbow belching unicorn !

Libya.

Take this as you will.

Rights group: 84 dead in Libyan protests.

Sorry, but when the basis for reporting on what’s going on there are the organization “Human Rights Watch” and the Libyan state-run media, I’m kind of skittish about posting information as bona-fide absolute fact.

I and many others don’t trust HRW at all and it doesn’t take much to realize their agenda coincides with confirmed-as-involved leftists like Code Pink and the rest of the usual suspects as ‘assistants’ in many things going on and in bed with The Muslim Brotherhood.

As for the Libyan state-run media: Yeah, right.

Friday Prayers And Protests In Libya, Yemen And Bahrain.

Israel National News reports:

The mass protests sweeping the Arab world continued Friday with demonstrations in Yemen, Libya and Bahrain. In the latter two countries thousands took to the streets to mourn protesters killed in clashes with police earlier in the week.

Twenty-four people were killed in clashes with security forces in Libya over the past three days.

In Yemen, demonstrators have used social media to call for a “Day of Rage.” Thousands of pro-government protesters took to the streets Friday in preparation.

Bahraini leaders have accused the Lebanese terrorist group Hizbullah, a Shi’ite Muslim group, of encouraging riots in their country. Officials said that Hizbullah flags were found at the Manama rally, along with weapons and ammunition.

How long will it take for Hillary and the American left to blame those evil scary-looking guns with the sole responsibility for bringing peace-loving flags to the demonstration ?

=== === === === ===

This has got to be used in a campaign advert for our side.

Article at Ynet News.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad attacked Barack Obama on Friday, saying the American president “doesn’t even know how to spell his own name properly.”

During a visit to Bushehr ahead of a scheduled rally in support of his regime, the Iranian leader said, “Obama wants to rule the world, but he can’t even control his own emotions.”

“Egypt’s New Hitler” — Sheik Qaradawi Returns To Egypt For Friday Prayers.

The dude was banned from Egypt for over 30 years.

He’s back.

For starters, Pamela Geller at Atlas Shrugs has some details on the peace-loving gent.

“Egypt’s New Hitler” — Sheik Qaradawi Returns To Egypt For Friday Prayers.

This is the annihilationist whom the Ground Zero mosqueteer Imam Rauf lauded and admired.

Egypt “Victory March,” preacher urges new government.

What could go wrong ?

Meet the Iranian “Protesters” Up Close And Personal.

An Associated Press article via the Jerusalem Post.

Thousands call for execution of Iranian opposition leaders.

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Thousands of government supporters called for the execution of opposition leaders at Friday prayers in the Iranian capital Tehran, following last week’s anti-government demonstrations.

Hardline cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati said during the Friday prayers that the opposition leaders have lost their reputation among people and are practically “dead and executed,” while worshippers chanted for their actual executions.

“Their communications with people should be completely cut. They should not be able to receive and send message. Their phone lines and internet should be cut. They should be prisoners in their home,” he said.

I’m honestly surprised Mousavi and Karroubi are still alive and that the government hasn’t ordered the police and military to simply open fire on the real protesters.

Jordan — Clashes in Jordan injure 8 ‘protesters’.

AP report via Fox News.

I noted the word ‘protesters’ in the header because of who they are. Emphasis mine.

AMMAN, Jordan – Clashes erupted Friday in Jordan’s capital between government supporters and opponents at a protest calling for more freedoms and lower food prices, injuring eight.

The Amman protest drew about 2,000 people, including hard-line leftists, Muslim conservatives and students calling for reduced powers for the king and the chance to elect members of the Cabinet.

Note to AP and all other media outlets, including Fox News:

The term ‘Muslim conservatives’ is easily and willfully taken by many as a comparative to the definition of conservatives in America…… and the many of us know full well ‘Muslim conservatives’ is being used deliberately for the agenda.

You’re not going to be able to fool the masses much longer and when the time comes that they realize what’s been done, there will be nowhere to hide. Nowhere.

Iran Warships Headed To Syria — Yes they are – No they’re not – Yes – No – Yes – No……

Make up you’re bloody minds already !

Al-Arabiya says Iran cancels request to transit Suez Canal.

Iran canceled a request to transit two warships through the Suez Canal to the Mediterranean Sea, Al-Arabiya quoted a Suez Canal official as saying on Friday.

On Thursday, Iran denied previous media reports that it had withdrawn an application to transit the waterway.

Why does my mind go straight to something like this ?

Iran’s Navy
Yes, you can sail to the 57 states
Iran’s Navy
Yes, you can see the gulfs and straits
Iran’s Navy
Come on now, Mullahs, make a stand
Iran’s Navy
Can’t you see Obama needs a hand
Iran’s Navy
Come on, converge the Ummah-land
Iran’s Navy
Come on and get off your tush
Iran’s Navy
You can always blame Bush !

Sorry. 😉

— — — — —

Yes they are.

Oh come on now……. Iran said forget it as described above, so Egypt said ‘don’t be so hasty, c’mon in, the water’s fine’.

At 11:54am eastern time, The Associated Press released this article:

Egypt to let Iranian vessels through Suez Canal.

CAIRO (AP) – State media say Egypt has agreed to let two Iranian naval vessels transit the Suez Canal, a move that comes despite expressions of concern by Israeli officials.

State-run news agency MENA said Friday that authorities approved a request from Iranian diplomats who offered assurances that the two ships won’t have weapons or nuclear or chemical material.

Hint: One of the ships is a Warship. A. War. Ship. A frigate. An armed frigate. Unless I missed something along the way, that’s a……… Never mind.

It’s only The Muslim Brotherhood on all sides. Nothing to see here.

Egypt — Rafah Crossing Reopened.

Reuters report via Ynet News.

Egyptian authorities decided on Friday to open the Rafah border crossing into the Gaza Strip for humanitarian cases and to allow Palestinians stuck in Egypt to return to the enclave, state television reported.

The Rafah crossing links Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula to the Gaza Strip, which is run by Hamas. It was the first time the crossing had been opened since President Hosni Mubarak was toppled a week ago.

Supposedly, this is a one-way thing now. Just from Egypt to Gaza.

And hey, Reuters…… “Palestinians” ? There is no nation called Palestine. Oh right, I forgot…… The agenda…… How silly of me to think reportage would be honest.

The United States has vetoed The UN resolution to condemn Israel.

The rest of the UN Security Council nations voted FOR the resolution.

The other nations on the UNSC are: China, France, Russia and The United Kingdom as permanent members, plus the current lineup of Bosnia-Herzegovina, Brazil, Columbia, Gabon, Germany, India, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) – The United States vetoed a U.N. resolution that would have condemned Israeli settlements as “illegal” and called for an immediate halt to all settlement building.

The 14 other Security Council members voted in favor of the resolution in Friday’s vote.

The Obama administration’s veto is certain to anger Arab countries and Palestinian supporters around the world. The U.S. opposes new settlements but says taking the issue to the U.N. will only complicate efforts to resume stalled negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians on a two-state solution.

The Palestinians say they will not resume peace talks until Israel halts settlement building in the West Bank and East Jerusalem, which it wants as its capital.

I’ll not comment other than to say ‘Thank you, President Obama’.

UN Ambassador Susan Rice: The US “regrettably” had to veto the measure.

Report from Agence France Presse via Yahoo News:

US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said Washington had “regrettably” chosen to oppose the resolution, sponsored by some 130 countries, after seeking its compromise measure was rejected.

“This draft resolution risks hardening the positions of both sides,” Rice said. “It could encourage the parties to stay out of negotiations.” And she stressed Washington’s veto — the first by President Barack Obama’s administration at the United Nations — should not be taken as US support for settlement building.

We reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” she told the Council. “While we agree with our fellow council members and indeed with the wider world about the folly and illegitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity, we think it unwise for this council to attempt to resolve the core issues that divide Israelis and Palestinians,” she said.

So I’m supposed to stay toned down, remain civil and be respectful, eh ?

Saudi prince Talal warns of uprising threat.

Oh good. More coming to the party. Hope they bring enough snacks for everyone.

A senior member of the Saudi royal family has warned that the oil-rich country could be harmed by the uprisings sweeping the Arab world unless it speeded up reforms.

Prince Talal bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud told BBC Arabic that “anything could happen” if King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz did not proceed with a program of political transformation.

“King Abdullah … is the only person who can carry out these reforms,” the prince told the broadcaster. “On his departure, may that be in many years to come, latent trouble will surface and I have warned of this on many occasions. We need to resolve the problems in his lifetime,” the prince added.

Fun fun fun !
