Yep:  the Muslim Brotherhood--creations of the British empire nearly a century ago and allied to Uncle Sam for more than 6 decades--sure know how to throttle a Resistance movement.

It was almost as if the whole Tahrir thing happened for a reason. . .

This flare up may have been enough for Congress / BO to argue that going over the "fiscal cliff" and cutting military spending would not be in the best interests of the US of A, thereby looking like patriots when they all agree to increase the debt ceiling to accomodate more military (and domestic) spending.

If it's not enough, then bomb's away!!!!

I think the Resistance did just fine today, thank you very much.  The Zionist rag Ha'aretz reports today that "14 rockets fired by Gaza militants exploded in residential areas over course of Tuesday, marking a record number since beginning of Operation Pillar of Defense."

In other words, there is a reason that Apartheid Israel has been crying to the high heavens for the last three days for them to "JUST STOP!"  They haven't been able to prevent their entire country from an endless anxiety attack for days.

Priceless.  The fucking land-grabbing welfare cases are the epitome of both the bully and the coward, simultaneously.

And as with Syria, they comply.  Moneytalks.

I agree.

Most Israelis are Polish (Khazar) .

People from Khazaria. The Capitol, Sarkel, was at the delta of the Volga river.

Jews are thieving butchers. They make NAZIs look like boy scouts.

The only reason there will be a cease fire is because we bribe Egypt w/ 4 billion dollars in aid.

Eleven bucks for every person in the USA.

I would rather have the cash and let them fight to the death.

Apartheid Israel can violate international law with impunity, because they get the welare checks and the political cover from Uncle Sam.

The Palestinians don't have that same luxury--they return to being the prisoners of genocidal lunatics.  Good job, Hamas and Muslim Brotherhood.

As Stalin used to say, “no man, no problem.”

Polonium 210 is found in nature only in microscopic amounts. The one gram that can kill a man when slipped into his food or drink must be made in an advanced nuclear reactor. It can be carried across borders because it does not alert radiation detectors.

The last known use of Polonium 210 was the murder in London in 2006 of former Russian FSB (KGB successor) agent Alexander Litvinenko. He had defected from Russian security and co-authored a book claiming that Vladimir Putin’s rise to power in 1999 was accelerated by the FSB’s secret bombings of apartment buildings in Russia that were blamed on Chechen ‘terrorists’ – an eerie predecessor to the 9/11 attacks in the USA.

British authorities blamed a former FSB agent for poisoning Litvinenko’s tea, producing a horrible, excruciating death.

In 1997, two Israeli agents tried to murder Hamas leader Khaled Mashal in Amman, Jordan by squirting a poison into his ear. Threats from US President Bill Clinton forced Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu to deliver an antidote to the unknown poison to Jordan.

In 2010, another Hamas chief, Mahmoud al Mabhouh was murdered in Dubai by Israeli agents using a paralyzing drug, acytelcholine.

Yasser Arafat’s death came when the PLO leader was under virtual house arrest in his compound at Ramallah, surrounded by Israeli forces that controlled the compound’s food and water. Arafat had been threatened by death countless times by Israel, notably by PM Ariel Sharon. Most of Arafat’s most able aides had been killed by Israeli hit teams from Mossad. The amazing thing is that Arafat survived so long.

Who knows what is going on.  The puddle of mud Israel govt creates regarding anything it does spans across the globe.  Murky waters are now the norm and the truth may never be realized until far too late.  The puppet strings are evident, so are the puppet masters but without a balanced media for our information, for all we know the good guys are the bad guys and the bad guys are bad too.  In the meantime, the innocent will pay the price for this low-road of diplomacy with the loss of everything they've worked for all of their lives, loss of the children and their own lives.

It's a fraternity of unworthy  rich boys, living in castles and cashing in while drinking fine liquor, paying off or killing anyone who interferes with their script.  Man is devolving right before our fucking eyes.

Interesting point. Another shifting demographic cognate could be the Americas (that's right all  of 'em): their first nations might get their continents back yet if their populations keep growing in the same direction. Regardless of all the best efforts of the colonizers to 'clean' 'em out, or assimilate them, or integrate them, or whatever innocuous sounding phrase is being used as cover these days.

I say turn Israel into a plane of glass.

Then they won't have anything to fight over.

Let them build their temple on a radioactive pile of rubble! 

They are asking for it. 

There is no doubt a nuclear holocaust will be the result.

Idiot Jews will never learn their place.

Make peace, you idiots, or face what you dread; a radioactive wasteland.

All you religious fanatics will get what you deserve.

Love and love and love everybody; and you, and you, and you can be free!

Radioactive Glass vs. Love.

He won't give up now!

You are clueless because you do not consider other people's point of view, you dismiss others opinions summarily without studying their presentations.

Tell me what you think! If you spare a hour to consider an opinion other than the msm.

If you want to be blind..........go for it!

Sight is a blessing.

If you don't see that the US TAXPAYER pays double.

They pay Egypt 4 billion while paying Israel, countless, billions.

You misunderstand me.

Glass.....grass.....I could care less......let them fight. I don't want to pay for it.

You let me know when you are writing the check to the IRS. Then get back to me!

Why read your comments when you are to lazy to read mine?

I am a zealous anti-zionist.

I feign to imagine the trillions of dollars siphoned from the US Treasury/ FRBNY coffers to equip those Polish usurpers.

I am rallying for the rights of the, actual, Semites.......the Palestinians....... annihilation by the, ongoing Stern Gang of Polish terrorist.

I, do, know the drill.

I have seen the transfer of this country to the zionist; who will fail as always.

The zionist are killing our economy, usurping our autonomy and enslaving those not of their satanic faith.

The Jews worship the false god. 

I tune in to Sophia who glided upon the water void of light to create, Ialdaboaoth, thinking he was the only god and the creator of the universe to become the vindictive creator of  Israel.

Sophia will crush  Ialdaboaoth.

The Israelis will disperse and run for their  lives. Sadly, not to be spared.

The glass comment was really bad sarc/. 

I believe the Palestinians should get their state back.

The Polish are not entitled to Palestinian land.

Jews live in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, the USA, all over the world in peace with their neighbors and the rule of law in those lands.

I just don't think a bunch of Polish Khazars are entitled to steal the land of Palestine and proceed to commit genocide to ethnically cleanse the the land of people they don't consider Jewish.

Israel was created as a promise of Lord Balfour to bring the USA into WWI.
