Egypt's Air Sinai kept flying to Israel

The airline that kept flying to Israel: Egypt's Air Sinai: 
The decision to continue scheduled flights to Ben-Gurion airport was likely made by Cairo's leadership. Egypt's Air Sinai has continued its scheduled flights to Israel, despite the cancellation of flights by numerous American and European airlines, according to Calcalist. The Egyptian carrier runs four weekly flights to Ben-Gurion International Airport. 
The decision to continue flying to Israel must have been made at the highest echelons, and is meant to send a message to Hamas, which Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi regards with disdain, Calcalist reported. 
THINK ABOUT IT: IT PROVES OBAMA IS LESS A FRIEND OF ISRAEL THAN EGYPT.


ABORIGINAL INMATES IN AUSTRALIA CONVERTING TO ISLAM

And the imams supposedly trying to curb this won't be honest about the influence:
Australia's spy agency has been enlisted to help crack down on radicalisation in jails after revelations Aboriginal prisoners are converting to Islam and risk becoming extremists.

Sheikhs and imams are being brought into prisons to deliver de-radicalisation messages during Friday prayers, but two prominent Sydney sheikhs have told a high-level forum that chaplaincy services are grossly under-funded and prison converts are misinterpreting the religion.

A small but high-risk group of radicals are causing concern to Corrective Services NSW and it is believed recruitment to Islam is active, particularly among Aboriginal inmates.

Sheikh Omar Habbouche, who has worked with inmates and prison chaplains, says faith is a powerful tool in the reformation of prisoners but the lack of Muslim chaplaincy services in NSW means prison converts are misinterpreting Islam.
Yes, please tell us more taqqiya, why don't you. The Koran and its verses are the influence, and those imams should know it better than anyone else, so there's no misinterpretation at all. It's terrible the Aboriginal community in Australia is falling for such a repulsive religion.

DEATHS THREATS MADE AT ANTI-SEMITIC RIOTS IN SARCELLES

Another anti-Israel demonstration was conducted - this time illegally - in Paris, and the behavior this time was utterly worse (Hat tip: Town Hall):
Eighteen people were arrested for attacks on shops, including a kosher supermarket, a Jewish-owned chemist and a funeral home. Rioters, who carried batons and threw petrol bombs according to eyewitnesses, were yards from the synagogue when they were driven back by riot police who used tear gas.

“They were shouting: ‘Death to Jews,’ and ‘Slit Jews’ throats’,” David, a Jewish sound engineer told The Times. “It took us back to 1938.”
It's beyond the pale and obscene, and it's only discouraging more Jews from remaining in a once fine country to come here instead. A modern day Kristallnacht. And prime minister Manuel Valls wasn't helping when he brought up the war in Gaza as though that really matters:
Valls and Fabius reiterated calls for an immediate ceasefire in the region and rejected criticism of France's stance in the latest outbreak of violence there. Pro-Palestinian protesters and some leftist politicians accuse it of pro-Israeli bias.

"The images we see of women, children, being killed by Israeli bombings are horrendous. There is no other solution than an immediate ceasefire and negotiations," Valls said.
This is exactly what's encouraging those savages to resort to violence and worse. It's hardly pro-Israel at all. And people like him wonder why the Jewish community will only end up leaving? A very sick man who can't decide clearly where he stands. This is exactly what European politicians fail to come to terms with.

It's very sad if Jews have to leave France, but even the government's left no choice, and there's plenty of people there who won't be satisfied, because the government is failing thanks to political correctness. The worst part is that Europe as a whole does look to face a bloody civil war. If it comes, I hope nobody sane is going to let the Islamofascists take over the continent, because then, it would only lead to more misery for future generations in countries that pride freedom above all, and lead to just what we don't want: war.

SHEESH: HOW ABOUT THOSE USEFUL IDIOTS WITH THE "FREE GAZA" SIGNS!

I STILL SEE THOSE SIGNS AT THE RECENT "PROTESTS".


THEY SEEM TO FORGET THAT GAZA IS 100% UNDER SELF-RULE.

IF THE GAZANS NEED TO BE FREED FROM ANYTHING, THEN IT'S FROM THE HIDEOUS IDEOLOGY WHICH RULES IT: ISLAMISM.

EVEN THE EGYPTIANS - WHO HAVE A CLOSED WALL ON THEIR GAZAN BORDERS - KNOW THIS.

THERE WON'T BE A "FREE GAZA" OR PEACE BETWEEN GAZA AND EGYPT OR ISRAEL UNTIL HAMAS AND THE HIDEOUS IDEOLOGY THAT INSPIRES HAMAS ARE ERASED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH.




NORWAY ON RED ALERT: EXPECT JIHADIST ATTACK WITHIN DAYS

BBC:
Norway is boosting security because of an imminent threat from people linked to Islamist militants in Syria, the Norwegian intelligence chief says. The head of the PST security service, Benedicte Bjoernland, said it had "reliable information" about plans for some kind of attack "within days". She called the threat "non-specific" but "credible". ... Norwegian police are stepping up their presence at airports, stations and border crossings because of the new threat. 
A PST assessment last month said about 50 people had travelled to Syria from Norway as foreign fighters, and half of them had now returned to Norway, the Associated Press news agency reports. Ms Bjoernland did not name any possible targets when she announced the alert, at a news conference with Justice and Security Minister Anders Anundsen and police chief Vidar Refvik. 
The PST "recently received information that a group of extremists from Syria may be planning a terrorist attack in Norway", she said. A Frenchman who travelled to Syria to join Islamists last year has been accused of murdering four people in a gun attack on the Brussels Jewish museum in May. Mehdi Nemmouche, 29, is now facing extradition from France to Belgium.

Other European governments, including the UK and France, have warned of the risk that "home-grown" Islamist volunteers may return from the Syrian conflict and carry out attacks.
NORWAY IS PRO-PLO AND YET STILL A TARGET.

PROVING ONCE AGAIN THAT ISRAEL HAS LITTLE TO DO WITH ISLAMO-TERROR.

(NEED MORE PROOF? THEN JUST AS A SYRIAN-SHIA OR AN IRAQI SHIA.)

THE WORLD WON'T BE SAFE UNTIL SALAFISM/QTUBISM/KHOMENISM/ISLAMISM IS COMPLETELY ERASED FROM THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

BECAUSE OBAMA HAS APPEASED THESE ISLAMISTS, THE WORLD IS INCREASINGLY UNSAFE SINCE 2008 - AND NOW VERY UNSAFE.

WE CAN START TO MAKES THINGS SAFER THIS NOVEMBER.

IN FACT, IT'S NOVEMBER OR NEVER.


UNDERAGED GIRL "MARRIED OFF" IN AUSTRALIA UNDER SHARIA

The Australian Telegraph reported that a Muslim's been charged with marrying off his young daughter, and the "husband" was charged with illegal sexual activity:
In a case that has brought awareness of secret child brides in Australia, the girl’s father and the 26-year-old man she “wed” were charged in February over numerous child sex offences.

Documents that formed part of a successful apprehended violence order application by police at the time against the girl’s “husband” state that the young girl “believed or had been informed that sharia law overrides the Australian law”.
Correction: she'd been indoctrinated and lied to.
“She stated that together with the accused they had been trying to get him registered as her legal guardian with Centrelink in order to obtain any welfare benefits they could,” the court documents state.

The police allege in the AVO document that the 26-year-old man, who was charged with 25 counts of sexual intercourse with a child, admitted to officers on the day he was arrested that he had had sex with the girl daily since the religious ceremony in the living room of the girl’s Hunter Valley home on January 12.

“When questioned on this he showed no remorse and was confident that in doing this he had committed no crime,” the police documents state. His matter is still before the courts and he is being held at Villawood Detention Centre after his student visa was revoked.

The child and the Lebanese university student met at a mosque through the girl’s 62-year-old father who is a Muslim convert, police alleged.

The girl’s father, who cannot be named for legal reasons, is charged with procuring a child for sex and accessory before the fact to sexual intercourse with a child.

Dressed in a traditional Islamic tunic, the father-of-seven fronted Burwood Local Court yesterday where he was committed to stand trial in the Sydney District Court.

His lawyer Mario Licha said outside court the father would be defending the charges.

The alleged child bride, who is now 13, and her eight-year-old sister remain in the care of the Department of Community Services.
Interesting. Another convert who's done as much harm to his child's health as the mainstay Islamisogynists have. And it looks like he sees nothing wrong with child bridemongering any more than the so-called husband does. He should be jailed for a long time for the damage he did to the daughter.

SLOTT'S AMBIGUITY (AND BREVOORT'S TOO)

More know-it-all sainthood from Dan Slott, which begins with a Q&A on Tom Brevoort's site:
Peter Parker has been said to be ambiguously Jewish. Why would you let Slott force him to team up with a member of the faith that seeks to destroy Jews and all "infidels?"

Careful, anonymous sir, your racism is showing!
As usual, it's just like Brevoort to make no distinctions whatsoever between race and religion. Sigh, I hesitate to think what kind of educational institute he studied in. I don't know if Slott intends to team Spidey up with an Islamist (though I wouldn't put it past him to plan that now), but the poster who wrote that query is somebody whom I want to thank for raising the topic. I guess in the mind of Brevoort/Slott, defending Jews from Islamofascism is reprehensible? Very sad. I do know that a decade ago, Paul Jenkins wrote a story using a morally equivalent depiction of Muslims, where Spidey had to rescue a PLO operative from Dr. Octopus. I wonder if that's what the poster really meant?

Anyway, here's some tweets Slott wrote in followup:


Alas, yes, he is. It's not clear if he's truly proud of his racial background. It's less clear if he even likes his community's founding religion, Judaism. Where does he even stand on Hamas, who launched rockets galore at Jewish neighborhoods, even around my vicinity in Israel, and murdered three yeshiva students? Where does he stand on a Muslim cabbie who murdered a 19-year-old woman? Come to think of it, what does he think of all the Islamofascists in France and other parts of Europe who terrorized Jews and worse, murdered their victims? Ambiguity indeed.

It's only in the minds of the worst ignoramuses that Muslims couldn't possibly turn against Jews and commit taqqiya, as he's doing himself now (H/T: New English Review). It's only in the minds of such ignos that we shouldn't look at such Satanic Verses, as Salman Rushdie called them, as the repellent declarations they are against Jews and Christians. And it's only in said minds that an apostate from Islam couldn't possibly know what the religion he/she left is like.

But it will be soon, and in a bad way. Don't underestimate what Slott/Brevoort could have in mind now.

HAMAS SACRIFICES CHILDREN ON THEIR ALTER OF EVIL

Finance minister Yair Lapid has some questionable standings, but his take on the jihad stemming in Gaza written for the UK Telegraph is spot on:
Since the beginning of the last round of fighting, thousands of rockets have been launched at Israeli cities, armed terrorists have attempted to execute mass attacks in villages by the border and hundreds of mortars have been aimed at kindergartens and schools. The only reason these attempts at mass killing are not making an impression is that Hamas has failed. The Israeli Defence Forces’ land and air operation, along with Iron Dome, the anti-missile defence system developed by Israel, prevented us from gaining the world’s sympathy in return for images of mutilated Jewish children. Given a choice between sympathetic news coverage and the lives of our children, I choose life.

Hamas chooses otherwise.


Western eyes and ears consider it a dubious choice, but Hamas never hid its position on the matter: it has no problem with Palestinian children dying, so long as it serves its political objectives.

I know that sounds cynical, but that’s because it really is. Islamic terror is absolutely cynical, it always was and always will be, and its greatest speciality is taking advantage of every democracy’s main weakness – the fact that we sanctify life.
He's correct. It's almost like how the nazis sacrificed many people for their own evil ends, even selling them a badly developed car like the early Volkswagen Beetle just so they'd have an affordable car, but without good safety features (and the engine was in the rear, making it more dangerous in the front). When you deliberately put children in danger and don't urge them to take cover, that only proves you do not care about life at all, and hate the subjects who end up as pawns in an endgame. That's also why the Hamas imposed sharia in Gaza.

SHOWING SOLIDARITY WITH ISRAEL AND ENMITY TO THE HAMAS: Mike Bloomberg flying to Tel Aviv on El Al

Former Mayor Michael Bloomberg was set to fly to Tel Aviv on the Israeli airline El Al Tuesday, as he claimed flying to Israel remains safe even though U.S. and European carriers have halted flights there. 
The U.S. and European carriers decided to halt flights to Israel Tuesday after a rocket landed near Ben Gurion Airport outside Tel Aviv. 
But Bloomberg called the flight restrictions a concession to Hamas militants, and said flying to Israel remains safe and should not be avoided. 
“This evening I will be flying on El Al to Tel Aviv to show solidarity with the Israeli people and to demonstrate that it is safe to fly in and out of Israel. Ben Gurion is the best protected airport in the world and El Al flights have been regularly flying in and out of it safely,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “The flight restrictions are a mistake that hand Hamas an undeserved victory and should be lifted immediately. I strongly urge the (Federal Aviation Administration) to reverse course and permit U.S. airlines to fly to Israel.”

HOW WOULD A REAL ALLY HELP ISRAEL REOPEN ITS SOLE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT?

A REAL ALLY WOULD HELP ISRAEL BOMB THE HELL OUT OF GAZA UNTIL ALL ROCKET FIRE CEASED.

INSTEAD, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TELLS USA CARRIERS TO AVOID ISRAEL.

IT'S SICKENING.

AND NOT MERELY CAPITULATION TO TERRORISM.

IT ABETS TERRORISM.

AND IT SENDS A CLEAR MESSAGE TO OUR ENEMIES:

THAT THE USA WON'T DEFEND INTERNATIONAL AIRSPACE.

I EXPECT OUR ENEMIES TO SHOOT DOWN ANOTHER AIRLINER.

AND SOONER THAN ANYONE EXPECTS.

THANKS TO OBAMA.

IT MATTERS NOT WHETHER OBAMA HAS ENCOURAGED OUR ENEMIES OUT OF HIS POSTMODERN LEFTIST ATTACHMENT TO APPEASEMENT, OR BECAUSE OF HIS COWARDICE, OR BECAUSE HE IS INCOMPETENT OR BECAUSE HE'S REALLY ON THE OTHER SIDE.

THE RESULT IS THE SAME.

THE ONLY NEARBY ANTIDOTE IS ELECTING A GOP SENATE.

I PRAY NOVEMBER IS NOT TOO LATE TO SAVE THE USA AND THE FREE WORLD.

SIGH...

ROCKET LANDS NEAR BEN GURION AIRPORT, CAUSING FLIGHT CANCELLATIONS

A Hamas rocket landed near the airport, and it's led to some flights being momentarily cancelled, for how long we cannot know:
In a sign of increased caution about flying near combat zones, US and European airlines halted flights to Israel Tuesday after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport.

Delta Air Lines and United Airlines suspended service between the US and Israel indefinitely. US Airways scrapped its one flight to Tel Aviv Tuesday. Germany's Lufthansa and Air France also suspended flights. The actions come days after a Malaysia Airlines jet was shot down over eastern Ukraine with 298 people on board.
It's terrible, and shows how dangerous the Hamas' arsenal has become.

EUROPEAN GOVERNMENTS MAY BE WAKING UP, BUT STILL HAVE TO LOOK IN THE MIRROR

Tom Wilson at Commentary says European governments may be waking up to the violent Islamofascism that's taking a toll on European Jewry and even non-Jews in the continent:
For the second weekend running European cities witnessed a surge of hateful, and in places violent, anti-Israel protests. With the temper of these gatherings becoming so alarmingly extreme, European governments may now be waking up to a problem that has been festering in parts of their societies for quite some time. Yet as they attempt to make sense of this growing source of public disorder, one wonders whether Europe’s political elites will reflect upon their own role in manufacturing this fiercely anti-Israel atmosphere.
Absolutely correct. In fact, some French media outlets are government-owned, including Le Monde, the second TV channel, and even the AFP. The BBC is also government-owned, and there's probably a couple other newspapers in Britain under the same status. It's that precise ownership that allows them to get away with such incitement more than many others. I don't know if selling them to private ownerships would help, but at least it would be a step towards what Americans call limited government, and it could help built better jobs, depending on what companies buy into these newscasters.

And the governments in Europe, if they're really concerned, are going to have to address their own roles here, and have to be confronted about it seriously, to see if they're willing to admit they're capable of making mistakes. Only that way will it be possible to make some repairs in Europe, yet it's certain there's a lot of damage that'll take ages to mend.

THE FRENCH INTIFADA IS THE MOST TERRIFYING NON-FICTION BOOK CURRENTLY ON THE MARKET

Harold Goldmeier reviewed Andrew Hussey's new book, The French Intifada, which tells the history of how Islamofascism ended up in France's backyard; surely one of the scariest non-fiction books you can read. It also tells how, when the French colonialists came to Africa:
The Europeans brought their ancient religious hatred of the Jews to North Africa. ‎It was, inter alia, French anti-Semitism that gave gravitas to Jew-hatred among ‎Arabs. Hussey illustrates this with a fascinating, little-known story on the heels of ‎the Dreyfus Affair. Doctor Mauchamp was murdered by an Arab mob in ‎Marrakesh. The Arabs labeled him an agent of the French there to control the local ‎population through the use of new technology. Rather than confront the ‎Moroccans directly, the French Foreign Ministry blamed the murder on a German ‎Jew, Judah Holzmann, an employee of the local pasha. A convenient scapegoat, ‎since everybody hates the Jews.‎
So the same government that turned Dreyfus into a scapegoat at the time also saw fit to use a similar tactic over in north Africa. Later politicians then proceeded to take what they first used with Jews and victimize their own community with it by bringing those same Islamofascists over to European soil. Describe it like this: "first they foisted abominations on the Jews..."

But it's not entirely accurate to say French anti-semitism influenced Arabs - what it did was jumpstart what was already written in the Koran. And that's one of the biggest sins anti-semites from allegedly western backgrounds could commit: re-encouraging more violence in what they see as the most ideal tools.

Here's a related op-ed from Robert Wistrich.

HAMAS BUILT A VAST TUNNEL NETWORK IN GAZA

The IDF found long tunnels in its incursion back to Gaza:
Israeli infantry soldiers operating in the Gaza Strip unearthed at least 22 tunnels and killed 40 terrorists in the first day of the IDF's ground incursion into the Hamas-ruled enclave, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit said on Friday.

The military released pictures of the tunnels on its Twitter account. Israel has stated that it seeks to destroy Hamas' network of tunnels that are used to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip.
More at the link. This is what the "disengagement" enabled. And unless these tunnels are destroyed, the operation will be a failure, as an expert explains:
Unless the Hamas tunnel threat is eliminated Operation Protective Edge will be a failure and Israeli citizens on the front lines will remain in mortal danger, the head of the Eshkol Regional Council said Sunday.

"This is not a matter of if you're on the right or left, this is a situation that was forced upon them [Eshkol region residents]. They see no joy in the attacks in Gaza but they were forced into this," Eshkol Regional Council head Chaim Yellin said Sunday.

On Thursday over a dozen gunmen infiltrated into Israel near Sufa in the Eshkol region, and on Saturday, another infiltration was foiled near the Eshkol town of Ein Hashlosha. On Sunday, the IDF announced that they had found another tunnel, this one dug deep into Israel underneath Nativ Haasarah in the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council.

The threat has become so instilled in the minds of residents that many report hearing the sound of digging underneath their houses late at night. Yellin said when these complaints are made, the IDF is called to investigate and the sound usually turns out to be from an animal or local infrastructure, if it is found at all. Yellin said that at the moment the residents of the council's 15 kibbutzim and 13 moshavim are facing different levels of danger based on their location. In the communities closest to Gaza as much as 75% of the residents have relocated to areas farther from the Gaza Strip and the rockets, mortars, and tunnel threat, while those farther from Gaza for the most part remain. He said in some of those communities farthest from Gaza as much as 85% of people remain.
The IDF has now taken to demolishing the tunnels, and they must ensure that every last one of them collapses, or they could even be used for smuggling weapons in from Sinai.

AP WIRE CONCEALS IDENTITY OF RIOTERS IN SARCELLES, AND VILLIFIES JEWS

The AP Wire covered up the identity of the anti-Israelists who defied a ban on protesting in France, and to make matters worse, they even make Jews out to look bad:
SARCELLES, France – French youth defying a ban on a protest against Israel's Gaza offensive have set fire to cars and garbage cans in a Paris suburb after a calm demonstration.

Sunday's unrest in Sarcelles, north of Paris, was the second time in two days that pro-Palestinian demonstrations turned violent. The demonstration, like the one in Paris on Saturday, had been banned to ensure peace.

Tension mounted as scores of Jewish youth, some armed with iron bars, encircled a synagogue to "protect" it.

The rampage came hours after France honored some 13,000 Jews rounded up 72 years ago, most kept in a cycling stadium before being sent to Auschwitz.

Prime Minister Manuel Valls denounced a "new form of anti-Semitism" on the Internet and spreading among youth in working class neighborhoods.
This is one of the most disgusting briefs I've seen from the AP, written in a manner that makes the Jewish worshipers at the synagogue look like fiends, and censors the word "Muslim" in it. I think the managers of the synagogue should sue the AP for this.

Pope Francis demands justice for 1994 Argentine Jewish centre attack victims

BBC: 
The biggest bomb attack on Argentine soil killed 85 people and injured another 300. The Jewish community in Argentina - the most numerous in Latin America - said there was enough evidence to show that Iran planned and financed the attack against Amia and that the militant group, Hezbollah, carried it out. Argentine prosecutors accused Iran and Hezbollah in 2006. Eight suspects were named, including former Iranian Defence Minister, Gen Ahmed Vahidi. But no arrests have been made. ... 
 Pope Francis has demanded justice for the victims of a bomb attack against a Jewish centre in Buenos Aires exactly 20 years ago. 
In a recorded video to mark the anniversary, the Pope described the attack as an "act of madness". 
Eighty-five people were killed in the attack, which was masterminded by Iran, according to Argentine courts. Iran denies any involvement.
Last year, Iran and Argentina agreed to set up a truth commission. 
Pope Francis said the suffering of the families cannot be forgotten. He was the auxiliary bishop of Buenos Aires at the time. 
"My prayers for all the victims are accompanied today by my call for justice. Justice must be done," he said. "And may God give peace to all of those who died in this act of madness."

16 GLOBALLY RENOWNED SCIENTISTS SAY MAN-MADE CLIMATE CHANGE IS BULLSHIT

WHO ARE THEY?

HERE: 

  1. Claude Allegre, former director of the Institute for the Study of the Earth, University of Paris; 
  2. J. Scott Armstrong, cofounder of the Journal of Forecasting and the International Journal of Forecasting; 
  3. Jan Breslow, head of the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics and Metabolism, Rockefeller University; 
  4. Roger Cohen, fellow, American Physical Society; Edward David, member, National Academy of Engineering and National Academy of Sciences; 
  5. William Happer, professor of physics, Princeton; 
  6. Michael Kelly, professor of technology, University of Cambridge, U.K.; 
  7. William Kininmonth, former head of climate research at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology; 
  8. Richard Lindzen, professor of atmospheric sciences, MIT; 
  9. James McGrath, professor of chemistry, Virginia Technical University; 
  10. Rodney Nichols, former president and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences; 
  11. Burt Rutan, aerospace engineer, designer of Voyager and SpaceShipOne; 
  12. Harrison H. Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut and former U.S. senator; 
  13. Nir Shaviv, professor of astrophysics, Hebrew University, Jerusalem; 
  14. Henk Tennekes, former director, Royal Dutch Meteorological Service; 
  15. Antonio Zichichi, president of the World Federation of Scientists, Geneva;
  16. AND: Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ivar Giaever.

In September, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Ivar Giaever, a supporter of President Obama in the last election, publicly resigned from the American Physical Society (APS) with a letter that begins: "I did not renew [my membership] because I cannot live with the [APS policy] statement: 'The evidence is incontrovertible: Global warming is occurring. If no mitigating actions are taken, significant disruptions in the Earth's physical and ecological systems, social systems, security and human health are likely to occur. We must reduce emissions of greenhouse gases beginning now.' In the APS it is OK to discuss whether the mass of the proton changes over time and how a multi-universe behaves, but the evidence of global warming is incontrovertible?" 
In spite of a multidecade international campaign to enforce the message that increasing amounts of the "pollutant" carbon dioxide will destroy civilization, large numbers of scientists, many very prominent, share the opinions of Dr. Giaever. And the number of scientific "heretics" is growing with each passing year. The reason is a collection of stubborn scientific facts. 
Perhaps the most inconvenient fact is the lack of global warming for well over 10 years now. This is known to the warming establishment, as one can see from the 2009 "Climategate" email of climate scientist Kevin Trenberth: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can't." But the warming is only missing if one believes computer models where so-called feedbacks involving water vapor and clouds greatly amplify the small effect of CO2. 
The lack of warming for more than a decade—indeed, the smaller-than-predicted warming over the 22 years since the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) began issuing projections—suggests that computer models have greatly exaggerated how much warming additional CO2 can cause. Faced with this embarrassment, those promoting alarm have shifted their drumbeat from warming to weather extremes, to enable anything unusual that happens in our chaotic climate to be ascribed to CO2. 
The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas, exhaled at high concentrations by each of us, and a key component of the biosphere's life cycle. Plants do so much better with more CO2 that greenhouse operators often increase the CO2 concentrations by factors of three or four to get better growth. This is no surprise since plants and animals evolved when CO2 concentrations were about 10 times larger than they are today. Better plant varieties, chemical fertilizers and agricultural management contributed to the great increase in agricultural yields of the past century, but part of the increase almost certainly came from additional CO2 in the atmosphere.

Although the number of publicly dissenting scientists is growing, many young scientists furtively say that while they also have serious doubts about the global-warming message, they are afraid to speak up for fear of not being promoted—or worse. They have good reason to worry. In 2003, Dr. Chris de Freitas, the editor of the journal Climate Research, dared to publish a peer-reviewed article with the politically incorrect (but factually correct) conclusion that the recent warming is not unusual in the context of climate changes over the past thousand years. 
The international warming establishment quickly mounted a determined campaign to have Dr. de Freitas removed from his editorial job and fired from his university position. Fortunately, Dr. de Freitas was able to keep his university job. 
This is not the way science is supposed to work, but we have seen it before—for example, in the frightening period when Trofim Lysenko hijacked biology in the Soviet Union. Soviet biologists who revealed that they believed in genes, which Lysenko maintained were a bourgeois fiction, were fired from their jobs. Many were sent to the gulag and some were condemned to death. 
Why is there so much passion about global warming, and why has the issue become so vexing that the American Physical Society, from which Dr. Giaever resigned a few months ago, refused the seemingly reasonable request by many of its members to remove the word "incontrovertible" from its description of a scientific issue? There are several reasons, but a good place to start is the old question "cui bono?" Or the modern update, "Follow the money."

ANTI-ISRAEL RIOTS ERUPT IN TURKEY

The Israeli foreign ministry withdrew its staff in Turkey because of anti-Israel rioting:
Violent protests erupted at the Israeli embassies in Istanbul and Ankara on Thursday night, with throngs of shrieking Turkish demonstrators hurling rocks at the embassy and at staff, screaming hate slurs, and waving pro-Palestinian flags and banners.

Hundreds of protesters attacked the Israeli consulate in Istanbul while similar numbers sought to break into the residence of the ambassador in Ankara.

Riot police fired tear gas and water cannon to halt the protests in Istanbul in the early hours of the morning but in Ankara they stood on the sidelines.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman announced Friday that he would be retracting much of the Israeli embassy staff in Turkey following the senseless riots, citing safety concerns and growing anti-Israel incitement from the Turkish leadership.
Which, you can be sure, was encouraged by Recep Erdogan, also mentioned in the article:
The move follows a number of inflammatory and anti-Semitic hate slurs from Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has become increasingly vocal against Israel after the IDF moved to protect millions of Israelis from Hamas rocket fire.

Erdogan has threatened to end the normalization process with Israel over "state terrorism" before, and also accused Israel of "lies" because "not enough" Israeli Jews have died in the conflict.

"They say (Hamas) is firing rockets. But is there anybody who died?" he asked. "The number of Palestinians that you (Israel) killed is now 100. Their (Israel's) life is based on lies."

"You will first stop this oppression. If not, it is not possible to realize normalization between Turkey and Israel," Erdogan said, on a separate occasion.

On Thursday night, he claimed Israel had a long history of "genocide" against Muslims, in a series of confused and violent slurs relating to the Ramadan fast.

"This is not the first time we have been confronted by such situations," Erdogan told a meeting of Islamic scholars gathered in Istanbul for Ramadan, a holy month of fasting for Muslims. "Since (the creation of the state of Israel) in 1948 we have been witnessing this attempt at systematic genocide every day and every month. But above all we are witnessing this attempt at systematic genocide every Ramadan."

Erdogan himself has also had a long public record of anti-Semitic statements, including several recently despite efforts to normalize relations.
If he keeps that up, he's obviously not trying to mend fences and "normalize". What's so normal about a man saying such ugly things? Update: Michael Rubin at Commentary has more about what Erdogan is like.

TERRORIST WHO BOMBED BUS IN SOFIA, BULGARIA WAS DUEL FRENCH/LEBANESE CITIZEN

The Bulgarian authorities have revealed the name of the jihadist who committed murder in Sofia:
Bulgarian prosecutors revealed for the first time Friday the identity of the bomber in a deadly attack on Israeli tourists in the Bulgarian sea resort of Burgas in 2012. Five Israeli tourists were killed in the attack as well as the driver of the bus and the bomber, while more than 30 other Israelis were injured.

The bomber was named as Mohamad Hassan El-Husseini, a dual French and Lebanese citizen, born in Lebanon in 1989, prosecutors said in a joint statement with the national security agency DANS.

"He was positively identified thanks to a DNA test and other measures during the course of the investigation," they added.

"Friends and relatives of Husseini also posted messages of praise on social media for his martyr's death," the statement noted.
So here we have another jihadist who lived in France, and who's also got relatives and friends who condone his sadistic behavior. He should go to hell for what he did, along with all those who support him.

THE HOMES OF THE ISLAMOFASCISTS WHO MURDERED 3 YESHIVA STUDENTS WILL BE DESTROYED

The authorities discovered who the culprits are in the murder of the yeshiva students, and now, they're going to demolish their homes, as is justly deserved:
The Israel Defense Forces on Wednesday ordered the demolition of the homes of Marwan Kawasme and Amar Abu Aysha, the two suspects in the kidnapping and murders of Israeli teens Gil-ad Shaer, Eyal Yifrach, and Naftali Frenkel. A further demolition order for the home of Hussein Kawasame, who is also suspected of involvement in the crime, was also issued.

The homeowners have been given 48 hours to leave their homes or to appeal the orders in court.

Kawasme and Abu Aysha are wanted by Israel's defense establishment and have been missing since the three teens were kidnapped on June 12. Despite the current focus on Gaza and Operation Protective Edge, the IDF Central Command and Judea and Samaria Division are continuing the search for the two suspects.

Since Operation Brother's Keeper began, relatives of the suspects have been arrested in an effort to learn more about their whereabouts. The defense establishment has promised that the search will not end until they are found.
It'll remain to be seen whether the families of these satanic worshipers will cooperate with the authorities to pinpoint the whereabouts of the turds they produced.
