One Victim Identified as American Rabbi, Moshe Twersky, Head of Yeshiva

Reality Denial  -  Hamas claims attack is revenge for hanging (of Arab bus driver), just revealed to be a suicide.  -  Since when did jihadis need an excuse for terrorism?  

**  Monster's Ball  -  Palestinians celebrate massacre, hand out candies.  -  Revelers also celebrated by brandishing axes and posters of the "martyrs" (perpetrators) in praise of the deadly attack.

**  Have the Palestinians Finally Gone Too Far?  -  Not even close!  -  Despite a well-rehearsed chorus of condemnations from political-leader-types, it won't take long for Jew-haters to regain their senses. 

The Wages of Appeasement  -  Over past year, there have been 10,000 terror attacks with 18,000 dead worldwide.

New York Times Calls Palestinian Terrorists 'Palestinian Individuals'  -  I'm surprised that the NY Times didn't call them "freedom fighters" (which they have done in the past).

**  Why Jerusalem Really Matters to the Palestinians  -  The PLO covenants of 1964 and 1968 did not mention Jerusalem once.  The Palestinian National Charter of 1968 likewise does not mention Jerusalem a single time.  (Fatah’s charter does mention Jerusalem once.)  -  If Jerusalem has always been so central to Palestinian Arab nationalism, then why was it ignored for so long?  -  “They don’t want Jerusalem, they want to want to ensure that Jews do not have Jerusalem.”

Why the Iranians Are Smiling  -  Without the slightest fanfare or notice by the international press, Shia rebels supported by Iran captured the capital city of Sana’a in Yemen.  This extraordinary geostrategic move gives Iran entrance to the Red Sea.  Along with its command of the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf, Iran will be in a position to control the sea lanes surrounding the Arab world.  -  With Beirut, Baghdad, Damascus, and Sana’a under Iranian control and influence, the dream of a Shia Crescent appears as a reality.  Moreover, with Yemen on the door step of Saudi Arabia, Iran has an ideal staging area for attacks against its main Sunni rival.  -  Through its virtual silence, the United States is complicit in these actions. 

Iran’s Letter to Obama: Thanks for the Nukes!  -  Dear President Obama; You’ve been a great friend for the last six years and, to express our appreciation, we’d like to acknowledge some of your many helpful actions ... And you will be astonished / horrified when you see this list !!!
