- HALF-JEWISH, HALF-SAUDI WOMAN SUING FOR 9/11 STRIP SEARCH
By: Malkah Fleisher - Published: January 24th, 2013 - Shoshana
Hebshi, a half-Jewish, half-Arab woman from Ohio is suing Frontier
Airlines, the FBI, TSA and other governmental agencies after
she says she was forced off a flight, strip-searched, and imprisoned
on the tenth anniversary of the World Trade Center attacks. On
September 11, 2011, 36-year-old Hebshi whose mother is
Jewish and father is Saudi says a security official aimed
a gun at her and forced her to disembark a flight from Denver
to Detroit after two South-Asian men seated next to her made
repeated trips to the bathroom during the flight, raising suspicion
amongst fellow travelers. Hebshi said she was ordered to put
her dead down and arms out, and was removed by officials in handcuffs,
being taken to a dirty cell at Detroit Metro Airport
where she was held for over four hours, including a strip search
during which she was made to stand spread eagle and cough. The
two other men who did not know each other were
ultimately released after undergoing similar circumstances.

- KEY IRANIAN NUCLEAR FACILITY HIT?
- Source: Explosion destroys much of underground installation
Published: 22 hours ago Today: 1.25.2013 by Reza Kahlili - An
explosion deep within Irans Fordow nuclear facility has
destroyed much of the installation and trapped about 240 personnel
deep underground, according to a former intelligence officer
of the Islamic regime.
- The previously secret nuclear site has become a center for
Irans nuclear activity because of the 2,700 centrifuges
enriching uranium to the 20-percent level. A further enrichment
to weapons grade would take only weeks, experts say.
- The level of enrichment has been a major concern to Israeli
officials, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu repeatedly has
warned about the 20-percent enriched stockpile.
- The explosion occurred Monday, the day before Israeli elections
weakened Netanyahus political control.
- Iran, to avoid alarm, had converted part of the stockpile
to fuel plates for use in the Tehran Research Reactor. However,
days after the recent failed talks with the International Atomic
Energy Agency, Iranian officials announced the enrichment process
will not stop even for a moment.
- The regimes uranium enrichment process takes place
at two known sites: the Natanz facility with more than 10,000
centrifuges and Fordow with more than 2,700. The regime currently
has enough low-grade (3.5 percent) uranium stockpiled for six
nuclear bombs if further enriched.
- Get the inside story in Reza Kahlilis A Time
To Betray and learn how the Islamic regime bought
the bomb in Atomic Iran.
- However, more time is needed for conversion of the low-grade
uranium than what would be needed for a stockpile at 20 percent.
It takes 225 kilograms of enriched uranium at the 20-percent
level to further enrich to the 90-percent level for one nuclear
bomb. Continued: http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/sabotage-key-iranian-nuclear-facility-
- 8 DEADLY AGENTS 'TO BRING U.S. TO ITS KNEES'
Millions of lives at stake as Iran develops biological arsenal
Published: 01/01/2013 at 7:30 PM by Reza Kahlili - Iranian scientists,
working under orders from the radicals running the Islamic regime,
have genetically altered microbial agents in a nightmarish scheme
to bring the West to its knees.
- According to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence
unit with knowledge of Irans microbial research and development,
the scientists, with Russian and North Korean help, currently
possess eight extremely dangerous microbial agents that, if unleashed,
could kill millions of people.
- As reported exclusively on WND on Dec. 16, the source revealed
the existence of a plant in Marzanabad, Iran, where 12 Russian
and 28 Iranian scientists are working on microbial agents for
bombs. At that time, the source disclosed that Iran was working
on 18 agents, with four completed. He has now provided information
that with work at two other plants, Iran has created a total
of eight microbial agents, with research on insects to be used
as the vector to infect the societies of its enemies.
- The eight agents are anthrax, encephalitis (the blueprint
of this virus, Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis, was provided by
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez in an agreement two years ago
with the Islamic regime), yellow grain (developed with the help
of North Korea), SARS, Ebola, cholera, smallpox and plague.
- Iran, with North Koreas help, has genetically altered
the smallpox virus that makes current vaccinations useless against
it. And research at two facilities that act as drug companies
but are fronts for the deadly research shows insects can be used
as the vector to carry plague, infamous as the Black Death,
according to the source.
- The outbreak of plague in the Middle Ages killed one-third
of Europes population, and it resurfaced in the 19th century
in Asia, killing millions in China and India. Continued: http://www.wnd.com/2013/01/8-deadly-
- WHERE DOES A 'MODERATE' VICTORY IN ISRAEL LEAVE THE PEACE
- The US remains the key to reopening the issue of Israeli-Palestine
- By Sharon Weinblum January 26, 2013 08:30 - GlobalPost Blogs
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. For those who were relieved by the unsuccessful
victory of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahus list
in the Israeli elections and interpreted it as the disavowal
of the ultra-nationalist and isolationist line, a second thought
might be necessary.
- It is correct that Netanyahus party, Likud-Beiteinu,
lost 11 seats. It is true, as well that despite Kadima falling
apart, the center-left has four more seats than in
2009, with 19 seats for Yair Lapids brand new party, now
the second party in the Knesset and probable future partner in
- Yet, as encouraging as this may be, the choice for change
signaled by Israeli electors should not be read as a rejection
of Netanyahus hard line, let alone as a call for a moderate
stance toward the Palestinians.
- In the exceptionally complicated Israeli party system, where
new parties pop up at every election, the triumph of Lapid, a
charismatic former journalist and defender of the center,
has less to do with the prospect of a peace agreement than with
the promise of improving the socio-economic lot of the young,
urban middle class.
- Housing costs, sharing of the burden (integrating
the ultra-orthodox in the military service and in the job market),
and political reforms were in fact the real questions at stake
in these elections, long before any debates on peace.

the largest Shiite country, has been a theocracy since the ouster
of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi in the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
It has been at odds with the United States and the West for much
of that time.
- Over the last few years, the United States has criticized
Iran for its suppression of the pro-democracy Green movement
in 2009 when a disputed presidential vote set off a bloody crackdown
against street protesters; its support for militant groups like
Hamas and Hezbollah; and, most significantly, for its nuclear
program, which the West believes is meant to develop weapons.
- Over the past year, there have been many rounds of nuclear
talks with Iran most recently in Moscow in June 2012
but they have stalled, though it is unclear whether this was
a tactical move by Iran or a collapse of the latest diplomatic

for Israel, prompting worry that it might mount a military strike
against Iran adding to the enmity between the two countries.
In July 2012, tensions escalated further, when a suicide bomber
attacked a tour bus carrying Israeli vacationers outside an airport
in the Bulgarian city of Burgas. Five Israelis and the Bulgarian
driver of the bus were killed along with the bomber, and dozens
more were injured. Israel quickly blamed Hezbollah, the Iran-backed
militia in Lebanon, and promised a firm response. Continued:

- By ALI AKBAR DAREINI Associated Press - TEHRAN, Iran
Iran considers any attack against Syria an attack on itself,
an advisor to the Islamic Republic's supreme leader was quoted
as saying Saturday, the strongest warning to date by a top Iranian
official that Tehran will use any available means to keep the
regime of President Bashar Assad in power.Ali Akbar Velayati,
an aide to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Syria plays a major role
in the "resistance front" of anti-Israel states and
militant groups."Syria plays a very key role in supporting,
or God forbid destabilizing, the resistance front. For this same
reason, attack on Syria is considered attack on Iran and Iran's
allies," Velayati was quoted by the semiofficial Mehr news
agency as saying.The comments reflect Iran's commitment to prevent
the possible collapse of Assad, who is fighting a bloody war
with rebels. More than 60,000 people have been killed since the
conflict began in March 2011, according to the U.N.Velayati,
Iran's former foreign minister, said the Lebanese militant group
Hezbollah and the Palestinian Hamas would had been defeated in
wars with Israel without Syrian support."If Syria didn't
provide logistical support to Hezbollah, Hezbollah and Hamas
would have not achieved victory in the 33-day and 22-day wars

War and Gaza War during the winter of 2008-2009. Both militant
groups claimed victory although Israel has disputed this.

- A VIEW FROM THE HILLS: MAINSTREAMING ANNEXATION (JUDEA AND
- By Josh Hasten - Jan 16, 2013 - 12:25:18 AM
- While just several years ago annexing Judea and Samaria seemed
liked an implausible, unrealistic, or even taboo suggestion,
today the concept of establishing Jewish sovereignty over all
of the land from the River to the Sea has grown into an entire
- In 2011, Women in Green, a grassroots organization dedicated
to safeguarding the Land of Israel for the Jewish people, hosted
a conference to discuss applying full Israeli sovereignty over
Judea and Samaria. The inaugural event was held in a small banquet
hall in Hebron, adjacent to the Cave of the Patriarchs.
- A few busloads of attendees, apparently mostly retirees,
arrived for the conference from Jerusalem, Gush Etzion, Samaria
and several other places throughout the country. In total there
were just over 200 participants in attendance to hear various
MKs and academics discuss what seemed at the time a far-fetched
delusion at best.
- However, on January 1 of this year, the third annual Women
in Green conference on the "Application of Israeli sovereignty
over Judea and Samaria," drew over 1,000 diverse attendees,
from college students, journalists and bloggers to veteran activists
and pensioners, and was held in a jam-packed, standing room-only

leaders and policy makers in Israel today. Continued:
- ISRAEL CAUGHT REDHANDED IN PROPAGANDA CAMPAIGN
- It may be good to have power based on weapons. It is better
and longer lasting, however, to win and hold the heart of a nation.Joseph
Goebbels, Hitler's Minister of Propaganda
- January 28, 2013, was one of these days in which I read the
Hebrew media and found myself unable to believe what I saw. Not
because the items were shocking or the pictures disgusting, but
because the items looked fabricated. Invariably, before quoting
Israeli sources I try to validate the data with more reliable
sources. The first item that called my attentionit had
been impossible to ignore after popping out as Breaking News
in the Haaretz Hebrew website while I was reading itwas
that Iran had launched a monkey to space. The Hebrew newspaper
reported that the achievement was performed with the help of
a Kavoshgar 5 rocket which had reached the altitude of 120km;
it also claimed that the payload had returned safely to earth,
though it didn't explain how. The article quoted Reuters and
Fars news agencies. I was unlikely to use such an item, yet,
it looked so unusual, and there was something so wrong in its
phrasing that I decided to open both source sites. The result
was so shocking that in order to be sure, I opened another international
news outlet, but also the BBC reported nothing on this achievement.
The Iranians are unlikely to keep such a groundbreaking event
secret; thus it is safe to assume that I was watching at an obvious
piece of Hebrew disinformation, performed for unclear reasons.

same time; the Hebrew one shows the date stamp of the Breaking
News event, 13:52 January 28, 2013, (Jerusalem Time) and gives

Outgoing Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon: This is a historic
achievement and a symbol that will encourage Christian tourism."
By Shlomo Cesana
- A historical agreement has been signed between Israel and
the Vatican, ending a 20 year dispute. Israel has granted the
pope an official seat in the room where the Last Supper is believed
to have taken place, on Mount Zion in Jerusalem. Israel did not
give up its control over the room, as the Vatican had demanded,
but Israel did decide to allow Vatican representatives a special
modicum of control over the site.
- An additional caveat of the agreement is a tax exemption
that Israel will grant to all of the Vaticans institutions

Balestrero, Undersecretary of the Holy See for the Relations

of this article, the Hebrew and English headlines of Haaretz
on January 7, 2013, did not match. The English headline was "Leading
Israeli rabbi blasts anti-abortion group Efrat for 'irresponsible'
slogans;" serious reports claim that most readers fell asleep
immediately after reading it. In contrast, the semi-secret Hebrew
headline read, "Gush Etzion Council gave false testimony
to the Supreme Court* to avoid evacuation of outpost." Israel's
version of the Chinese Great Wall is called "Hebrew Language."
- The news was related to an outpost** named Sde Boaz, near
Neve Daniel in Gush Etzion, not far from Bethlehem (see map below).
The name means "Boaz Field," ironically referring to
the Book of Ruth, in which Moabite Ruth is accepted by the people
of Israel ("Ruth said, Intreat me not to leave thee, or
to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest,
I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall
be my people, and thy God my God" Ruth 1:16). The outpost
was founded in 2002, when settler Hananel Shear-Yashuv placed
a shipping container atop a hill and declared the area as belonging
to him. Unexpectedly, Israeli law forbids such behavior; since
then the issue is in the Courts. Continued: http://www.roitov.com/articles/supremecrimes.htm

famous words; he said them in 1978, after the Supreme Court*

that the Justices too had at least some legal training. Yet,
they ignored the fact that Israel is a Geneva Conventions' signatory
country. The Fourth Geneva Convention prohibits the transfer
of an occupying powers civilian population into occupied
territory; thus the Israeli settlements in the West bank clearly
violate it.** Israel disputes that the Fourth Geneva Convention
applies to the Palestinian territories, claiming that they had
not been legally held by a sovereign prior to Israel taking control
of them. Israel's interpretation has been rejected by the International
Court of Justice and the International Committee of the Red Cross.

but changed its decision after it was caught red-handed by the
lawyers defending the Palestinian owners of the land. Luckily,

day, January 7, 2013, former candidate to lead Likud, Moshe Feiglin,

- E1 BOOMERAN, PALESTINIAN FIRST SETTLEMENT
- "Breach, for breach, eye for eye, tooth for tooth"
- When Netanyahu understood his mistake it was too late. He
painfully watched how the boomerang that he had thrown at the
State of Palestine was making a slow, smooth turn in the Jerusalemite
cold air. On January 11, 2013, the boomerang hit Netanyahu, his
government, and his people.
- Following the UN decision to accept Palestine as an observer
state on November 29, 2012, Netanyahu made several belligerent
answers. One of them was to bisect the West Bank in an attempt
to transform Palestine into a non-viable state. This was to be
achieved by constructing 3,000 new buildings in a zone known
as E1, located between Jerusalem and Ma'aleh Adumim (see map
below). The article E1: Trashing Evil contains a detailed description
of Netanyahu's mistake. The problem was that Benjamin Netanyahu
took the decision without having visited the site. In the cold
winters of Judæa, he favors his cozy office over the windy
hills surrounding the city. That was a shame. After Netanyahu's
rushed declaration, Jerusalem's mayor, Nir Barkat, rushed to
the phone and told Netanyahu that Israel had placed a substantial
waste dump in E1. The trash is blocking Israel's plan to bisect
the West Bank; forcing a delay. Before the area can be built,
the waste must be removed; the Israeli plan has been delayed.

I've got a scoop. It's the text of a letter - don't ask me how
I got it - from Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to Hamas leader
- It was hand delivered in Gaza by one of Israel's many Palestinian
collaborators who lives there.
- Like most if not all others of his kind, the poor man didn't
volunteer to spy for Israel. He was "recruited" after
being told that his wife would be raped if he didn't provide
information for Israel.
- Many years ago, as I noted in my book Arafat, Terrorist or
Peacemaker?, Abu Iyad, Fatah's intelligence chief, told me that
most Palestinians who became Israeli assets did so because they
were told that their mothers, or their wives, or their daughters
or their sisters would be raped if they didn't do what Israel's
security agencies wanted. "It's Israel's standard procedure,"
Abu Iyad said. (During Israel's ground and air assault on Beirut
in 1982, a Palestinian woman came to Abu Iyad and confessed that
she was an Israeli agent, one of 30 who were reporting on Arafat's
movements to enable Israeli jets to zero in and bomb him to pieces.
Abu Iyad had the other 29 rounded up and shot. He didn't tell
Arafat until they were dead because he knew the chairman would
have insisted on mercy and forgiven them).

to "His Excellency, Khaled Meshal." The letter itself
was to "The Palestinian Terrorist Leader." Continued:

He added that Israel is destined to collapse. "There will

palace is trying to distance itself from al-Aryan's statements.

to Israel will enable Palestinians to return to their homeland.
"Every Egyptian has a right to return especially if he is
making room for a Palestinian. I want to enable the Palestinians
to return to their land," he said. "I call upon the
Jews, Egypt is worthier of you than Israel." The statements
set off a firestorm of controversy and prompted criticism by
parties across Egypt's political spectrum. Muslim Brotherhood
spokesperson Mahmoud Ghozlan said the statements do not represent
the movement's stance. "Egyptian Jews are criminals who
must be punished for what they did to Egypt and the Palestinians,"
- In his interview with al-Sharq al-Awsat, al-Aryan also commented
on a clause in the new constitution allowing Christians and Jews
freedom of religion. "We have a Jewish minority and when
the Palestinian issue is resolved they will have the option of
returning to Egypt or going to other places." YNET NEWS

SYRIA BEGAN PREPARING 500-LBS BOMBS FILLED WITH CHEMICAL WEAPONS
- JOEL C. ROSENBERG - [Comprehensive blog]: http://flashtrafficblog.wordpress.com/2013/1/
- In my forthcoming political thriller, Damascus Countdown,
I try to envision a scenario in which the regime in Syria concludes
it is in its best interests to use weapons of mass destruction
and thus poses an existential threat to the State of Israel.
In the novel, I focus primarily on nuclear weapons. In reality
- at this particular moment -the concern is chemical weapons.
This morning we are learning just how seriously the regime in
Damascus is considering using weapons of mass destruction. "In
the last days of November, Israel's top military commanders called
the Pentagon to discuss troubling intelligence that was showing
up on satellite imagery," reports the New York Times. "Syrian
troops appeared to be mixing chemicals at two storage sites,
probably the deadly nerve gas sarin, and filling dozens of 500-pounds
bombs that could be loaded on airplanes." "Within hours
President Obama was notified, and the alarm grew over the weekend,
as the munitions were loaded onto vehicles near Syrian air bases,"
the Times notes. "In briefings, administration officials
were told that if Syria's increasingly desperate president, Bashar
al-Assad, ordered the weapons to be used, they could be airborne
in less than two hours - too fast for the United States to act,
in all likelihood.
- What followed next, officials said, was a remarkable show
of international cooperation over a civil war in which the United
States, Arab states, Russia and China have almost never agreed
on a common course of action....But concern remains that Mr.
Assad could now use the weapons produced that week at any moment.
American and European officials say that while a crisis was averted
in that week from late November to early December, they are by
no means resting easy.'"
- Also: "Israel's prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu,
was reported to have traveled to Jordan in recent weeks, and
the Israeli news media have said the topic of discussion was
how to deal with Syrian weapons if it appeared that they could
be transferred to Lebanon, where Hezbollah could lob them over
the border to Israel. But the plans, to the extent they exist,
remain secret." Hollis Caravetta E-mail: Holliscar@aol.com

- Sometimes I am criticised for using the description International
anti-Semites too often. I do substitute it by the words
bigots or idiots from time to time. I
shall continue to call things by their true names. Regardless
of the terminology, there are many facts pertaining to unfair,
genocidal and prejudicial treatment of Jews even during recent
history that support my use of the term International anti-Semites:
- 1. In July 1922, the League of Nations entrusted Great Britain
with the Palestine Mandate, recognising "the historical
connection of the Jewish people with Palestine". Great Britain
was called upon to facilitate the establishment of a Jewish national
home in Palestine - Eretz Israel (Land of Israel). Three months
later, in order to obtain full control over the Suez Canal, Great
Britain made a deal with the Hashemite Kingdom, Egypt and France.
Trans-Jordan (77% of the Mandate) was given to the king's brother
in exchange for the Sinai, which was given to Egypt. Golan Heights
(5% of the Palestinian Mandate) was ceded to the French controlled
- 2. Before WWII, knowing the genocidal intention of Nazi Germany
toward Jews, International anti-Semites signed an
agreement restricting Jewish immigration from Europe.
- 3. Nazis were facilitators of the Holocaust, but they would
not have been successful if not for the participation of local
Poles, French, Lithuanians, Ukrainians and others. In Denmark,
Bulgaria and even fascist Italy, where the local population and
governments did not co-operate with Nazi occupiers, many Jews

not be successful if not for enthusiastic and joyful participation
from local Polacks, French, Litanies, Ukrainians and others.
In Denmark, Bulgaria and even fascist Italy, where local population

- 5. On 29 Nov, 1947 the UN General Assembly adopted resolution
181, which divided the remaining 18% of the Jewish Land to six
unmanageable triangles with Jerusalem to be controlled by a "special
international regime", inviting Arabs to attack and finish
what Nazi Europe started!
