Walid Phares says Iran behind latest Hamas attack and Egypt likely won’t attack Israel

Walid Phares believes Iran is behind the latest Hamas attack in order to distract from both pressure on its nuclear weapons program and from the Syrian rebellion. He also believes it’s fairly unimaginable that Egypt will take any military action against Israel, but does believe they will be part of the negotiations to ratchet this down.

If Barack Obama truly supported Israel, he would not have facilitated the Muslim Brotherhood’s ascent to power across the Middle East.

Need to look at this from a perspective of who benefits from it. And who’se really calling the shots. Iran certainly does have a lot of influence with hamass in gaza. Iran calls the shots and the hamass are the pawns who their master’s bidding. But Egypt & Turkey who now have muslim brotherhood style govermments are also competing for influence in the reqion. If either one of them can successfully negotiate some sort of cease fire (Israel ceases & arab terrorists fire), it would be a big promotion in stature for the one who succeeds. Iran also benefits from the lapdog media not paying attention to their nuke weapons operations. The obamessiah also benefits. Benghazi, the fiscal cliff etc ratchet down in attention. Perhaps the regime will even get its tax increase thru by congressional inaction, while no one is paying attention. But we also need to pay attention… Read more »

Johnny Mercer and Richard Whiting wrote a lyric that goes a little something like this:

Hooray for Pallywood
That screwy, ballyhooey Pallywood…

Did I misspell Hollywood? Oh well, it’s the thought that counts.

“Palestinians” are immigrants from the surrounding nations. The history and origins of today’s Palestinians: They are from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, Muslim Sherkas from Russia, Muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door.

Here’s a wild suggestion. “Palestinians”, stop the terrorism and live in peace. You know p-e-a-c-e. Look it up.

Israel gave these people Gaza, they then elected Hamas to represent them, and the indiscriminate killing/terrorism, escalated. Maybe the MSM and the ghost of Arlo Guthrie could get together and sing to Netanyahu and his people: “This Land Is YOUR Land”.

The name ~Palestine~ is a derivation of the word Philistine. Goliath was a Philistine. King David (before he was King) killed Goliath with one stone from his sling, then cut his head off. Samson also fought against the Philistines.

Israel has already been fired upon from the Sinai… that was part of Egypt (since Israel was forced to give it back!)

It’s pretty simple, really. Israel will defend herself, just like she has always done. She will defend herself, with or without the help of the the United States, or this worthless President. She learned long ago, to not depend on anyone, least of all, The United States of America.

Pretty sad, when you think about it.

It all goes back to Iran. Iran is the key to most of the instability in the Middle East. The faster we acknowledge that fact, the faster we can deal with it. But it’s hard to do that when you have a president that is in constant denial about Iran. Obama really doesn’t see Iran as a threat, just a “distraction.” If you ignore Iran long enough, it will just go away. This is all going to blow up in Obama’s face before the end of next year, when Iran finally does get its nuclear bomb. The that “distraction” will become a bigger problem than the Cuban Missile Crisis. But, hey, according to Obama there’s nothing to worry about and economic sanctions are the way to go. Hmmm, didn’t we try economic sanctions with a fellow named Saddam Hussein called “the oild for food” program? And how did that work… Read more »

Iran could very well be behind this attack on Israel but it doesn’t matter because Israel will still have enough bombs left to take down Iran’s nuclear program.

What about Egypt firing rockets at Israel yesterday? http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/report-rockets-fired-egypt-hit-israel_663502.html Report: Rockets Fired from Egypt Hit Israel Daniel Halper November 16, 2012 7:27 PM Two major Israeli newspapers are reporting that rockets fired from Egypt have hit Israel. “Terrorists in the Sinai Peninsula launched rockets into Israel Friday night,” reports the Jerusalem Post. “The rockets fell near an Israeli village on the southern border, causing some damage, but no injuries.” The Israeli daily Haaretz reports, “Rockets fired from direction of Egypt toward Eshkol Regional Council.” It appears no damage was reported in connection with the rocket fire from Egypt. Earlier today, the Egyptian prime minister visited Gaza to express solidarity with the Palestinians there. This new front comes a day after a rocket landed near Tel Aviv and on the same day Israel’s capital Jerusalem was the target of rocket fire. Those attacks were courtesy of Hamas in the Gaza Strip.… Read more »

Why mess with all these other countries when we know who is behind it all? Its no secret and hasn’t been. Its ridiculous to keep treating the symptoms and not the disease. Iran helped with carrying out 9/11…that’s all we need to know. We did nothing. They kill our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq…that’s all we need to know. We have done nothing. Until Iran is finished we never will be.

ryan, the answer is simple and complicated at the same time. Two words. United Nations. Part of our government. I know. Outrageous statement. How could the United Nations be part of our government? It is simple. Because of Treaties signed by worthless Presidents, including this most recent one. Treaties give away our freedoms, and allow people who don’t live here, to help govern how we live. They are easy to sign on to, and hard to get rid of. If you don’t follow anything else in the political realm, pay attention to all the Treaties, that the United States signs onto in the next four years, because those treaties, will control how you and I live. They have the force of law. The very first, will be your guns. Better hide that sucker in a safe place in your bedroom. The Second Amendment is the biggest enemy the One World… Read more »

Emotions run high here, Joe. We are connected to each other electronically. I believe it would be different, if we were in front of each other, face to face, so to speak.

We say things here to each other, that we would not say to each other, if we were standing in front of the other person. That is the nature of blogs. We have to work on that.

Isrealicojones actually lives in a war zone. You and I don’t live in that war zone. He does. Let’s see how it works out. I’m going to cut him some slack.

The truth about Benghazi will come out and it will not mean anything to a president who owns the mainstream media and has an Attorney General who is the top of the Justice Department who will bend any law necessary to fulfill the transformation of our country. This country has never been where it is now. The sad part is the ignorance of the American people being exploited cannot be reversed.

The truth could get Obama impeached or worse. Whatever the truth is has to be pretty damaging to cover it up the way the administration has.

This is no doubt a coordinated attack meant to take down Isreal’s economy. How long can Isreal last with so many Reservists called up and not working in the economy? With the Middle East in turmoil and Dear Leader nowhere to be found, can Isreal outlast the Islamic Fascists they are surrounded by.

The Iranian regime is evil. Obozo missed our biggest chance in 2009-2010 affecting change in Iran when Iranians were protesting against their govt. Obama is now negotiating with the Iranian Mullahs. Shame on him.
