Is America aiding terrorists?

Sat Dec 8, 8:34 AM ET
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - An Israeli minister on Saturday rebuffed criticism by U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice of Israel's plan to build new homes on occupied land in the Jerusalem area, saying nothing should prevent the project.
Rice, who masterminded last week's Annapolis conference to press for an Israeli-Palestinian peace accord before the Bush administration leaves office, on Friday criticized the planned construction, saying it "doesn't help to build confidence."

Where are the public censures by Condi Rice concerning Abbas's aiding and promoting terrorism? The official PLA media outlets continue to air programs that teach and incite hatred as noted by Palestinian Media Watch.

In the holy Road Map the Arabs were supposed to stop terrorism as described below:

"In Phase I, the Palestinians immediately undertake an unconditional cessation of violence according to the steps outlined below; "....

"At the outset of Phase I:
Palestinian leadership issues unequivocal statement reiterating Israel’s right to exist in peace and security and calling for an immediate and unconditional ceasefire to end armed activity and all acts of violence against Israelis anywhere. All official [I guess unofficial Palestinian institution can can terrorism] Palestinian institutions end incitement against Israel. "

Just recently the PA via the official Al Aksa Martyrs murdered an Israeli citizen, Ido Zoldan. Dr. Condi Rice was very quiet about that as was Olmert. Did the murder of an innocent man "help build confidence"? As noted on Daled Amos, Abbas the President of the PA continues to allow the Al Aksa Brigades, which are Foriegn Terrorist Organizations as declared by the US Department of State, to operate and not be dismantled. Then they go and give Abbas more ammunition. In addition they supply Abbas with armored personnel carriers, US dollars and military training. So is the US by dint of this aiding terrorists?

A misleading caption

A sick Palestinian baby lies at the European hospital in the Gaza Strip December 2, 2007. Palestinians suffering serious illnesses have long travelled from Gaza to nearby Israeli hospitals for treatments unavailable at facilities in the territory, which is home to 1.5 million people and was occupied by Israel for 38 years until 2005. However Israel has tightened border restrictions since Hamas Islamists seized control of the coastal enclave in June. It also prevents access to Gaza by sea or air and has ensured a border crossing into Egypt is mostly shut -- so hundreds cannot get the care that could save lives. REUTERS/Ibraheem Abu Mustafa

Another way to slam Israel. The caption does not mention that this baby or any other baby is sick and Israel tightening the borders (Because the Arabs continually try to smuggle bombs across the border and have used ambulances to transport suicide bombers and bombs) and a specific baby or person is dieing. The caption just speaks in generalizations.

This article and all the similar pictures should appear in the Arab newspapers and the Arabs should have demonstrations in the streets protesting Hamas, Islamic Jihad, etc. because liability lies with them. If they'd stop the kassams and the suicide bombers then I'm more than confident Israel would make a security-based decision and loosen the borders.

This picture and caption is not propaganda.

Cheap road trip

Outing was just a cheap trip, lawyer says
By KEVIN GRAHAM, Times Staff WriterPublished December 1, 2007
TAMPA - Two road-tripping college kids on a budget.
That's how a federal public defender characterizes Youssef Megahed and Ahmed Mohamed, the suspended University of South Florida students facing federal explosives charges after a deputy stopped them in South Carolina for speeding.
In a pleading filed Friday, Megahed's attorney, Adam Allen, said Mohamed and Megahed were headed to Sunset Beach, N.C., the cheapest way possible.
They bought a global positioning system at Wal-Mart in Ocala, he wrote, so that they could find the cheapest gas prices at Wal-Marts and Murphy Gas Stations along the way.
When a deputy stopped the pair near a naval base on Aug. 4, Mohamed, 26, volunteered that he had "fireworks" and fuses in the car, Allen wrote, but Megahed, 21, didn't know about them.
According to the pleading, Mohamed, who had been in the United States only six months, became fascinated with fireworks before July 4, when he learned they were widely available. But after visiting several fireworks stands, he decided they were too expensive.
So, he turned to YouTube for instructions on how to make "sugar rockets" with stump remover, sugar and cat litter. Mohamed brought the fireworks on the beach road trip with his buddy in hopes he could find an open field to try shooting them off again, Allen wrote.

I guess Hamas are no longer terrorists

JERUSALEM, Nov. 30 (UPI) -- A Palestinian official says the ruling Fatah party would join forces with rival Hamas if Israel invades the Gaza Strip."Fatah won't remain idle in the face of an Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip," the official said. "We will definitely fight together with Hamas against the Israeli army. It's our duty to defend our people against the occupiers."

On Wednesday, June 20, 2007, the President of the Palestinian Authority which controls Fatah said, “There is no dialogue with those murderous terrorists,” Abbas said, accusing them [Hamas] of attempting a coup. Today they are willing to fight side by side. I guess Hamas is no longer on the PA terrorism list.
