Palestinian Authority Arabs who do not pay for electricity are not cut off. By Maayana Miskin
Sivan 13, 5773, 22/05/13 02:33
MK Orit Struk challenged Electric Corporation Director Yiftach Ron-Tal during a meeting of the Knesset’s Economics Committee on Wednesday. Struk asked Ron-Tal why the Electric Corporation does not cut off Palestinian Authority households that do not pay for electricity as it does for Israelis.
Many PA residents do not pay their electric bills. The Electric Corporation is owed a total of 730 million shekels by PA residents.
Ron-Tal told Struk he could not answer her question. “I cannot say why an Israeli citizen who does not pay for the electricity he uses is disconnected from the power grid, while a Palestinian is not, and keeps getting electricity without paying,” he said.
“If we are told by the diplomatic staff to collect the debt from Palestinian consumers, we will be happy to do so,” he added.

Ban / Confiscate Pressure Cookers|

Until they can be confiscated by the government, you can only fill your pressure cooker with 7 cups or less ... As Rahm Emmanuel advised Obama, "Never let a good crisis go to waste".
Psychos don't kill - pressure cookers do.
In light of the fact that a pressure cooker was used as part of the bomb used in the Boston Marathon massacre, I am writing elected officials at the federal, state and local level to immediately legislate a ban on these evil devices. Ultimately, my goal is to have the government confiscate all pressure cookers, but in the short term I will settle for immediate registration of pressure cookers.
Please write and call your elected officials and urge them to ban pressure cookers. No one needs a pressure cooker to make dinner!

Obama Throws Tantrum over Gun Control Defeat|

By Joel B. Pollak
April 17, 2013
President Barack Obama lashed out defiantly and viciously at political opponents who defeated his efforts to expand federal gun regulations today. Standing with families of victims of the Newtown school shooting at the White House, the president claimed that opponents of expanded federal background checks had "no coherent arguments" for their position, and that the "gun lobby" had "willfully lied" in the course of the debate.
The administration's defeat came earlier Wednesday, when the Senate failed to pass a cloture motion to end debate on a bipartisan proposal introduced by Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Pat Toomey (R-PA). Only 54 votes of the necessary 60
votes could be found to support an expanded federal background check system (among other changes
), partly because of fears that extending such checks would require the creation of a federal gun registry that could lead to confiscation.

Large Arab Anti-Obama Protest as President Goes to Ramallah|

As U.S. President Obama arrived in Ramallah for talks with PA officials, Arabs staged a large anti-Obama demonstration.
As U.S. President Barack H. Obama arrived in Ramallah for talks with Palestinian Authority officials, a large anti-Obama demonstration was taking place a few blocks away from the Muqata, the Palestinian Authority's headquarters in Ramallah.
Israel Television reporter Yoram Cohen said that the demonstrators shouts could be heard at the site where PA chief Mahmoud Abbas greeted Obama and his entourage, who had arrived from Jerusalem by helicopter.
Thursday's demonstration was the continuation of a definite anti-Obama movement in the PA, with PA Arabs saying that Obama had backed away from his previous attempts to pressure Israel, and that he was not pushing hard enough for Israel to surrender land and halt construction in Judea and Samaria.
Thousands of PA police and security officers were stationed in Ramallah. A large contingent of the officers had surrounded the very vocal protesters, said Cohen, preventing them from getting to the Muqata.

In a meeting with a group of Arab Americans this week, U.S. President Barack Obama revealed that he will not push the Israelis and Palestinians toward restarting negotiations or outline a new peace initiative during his upcoming visit to the region, but he will take with him a cash infusion of $500 million – which Congress will soon release – of much needed financial aid to the Palestinian Authority.
Obama met at the White House with members from the Arab American Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Arab American Institute, the Arab Federation of Ramallah, the American Task Force for Palestine and other individuals and groups.

DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport contro|
Posted by jewishindy on Thursday, March 21 @ 03:22:31 EDT |
March 20, 2013
A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler" status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Sources voiced concern about the decision to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which issued a report Wednesday on the under-the-radar announcement -- which was first made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after meeting in January with her Saudi counterpart. According to the IPT, this would be the first time the Saudi government has been given such a direct role in fast-tracking people for entry into the United States.
"I think you have radical Wahhabism in certain elements in Saudi Arabia, and I think to be more lenient there than in other places would be a mistake," Rep. Frank Wolf told the Investigative Project on Terrorism. "There were 15 [hijackers] from that country, and there is a lot taking place in that region."
Only an exclusive handful of countries enjoy inclusion in the Global Entry program -- Canada, Mexico, South Korea and the Netherlands. According to the IPT, some officials are questioning why Saudi Arabia gets to reap the benefits of the program, when key U.S. allies like Germany and France are not enrolled; Israel has reached a deal with the U.S., but that partnership has not yet been implemented.

Holder, Mueller, Mukasey used FBI's Gulfstream jets for business, personal travel even though Congress approved them for counterterrorism
By John Solomon
February 27, 2013
Two corporate-style jets that the FBI persuaded Congress to lease for fighting global terrorism have instead been used the majority of the time to ferry Attorney General Eric Holder, his predecessor in the Bush administration and FBI Director Robert Mueller on business and personal trips at an expense of millions of dollars to taxpayers, an investigation has found.
The bureau's state-the-art, sleek Gulfstream V jets logged 60 percent of their hours between 2007 and 2011 on "non-mission flights" that cost taxpayers $11.4 million, according to an investigation by the Government Accountability Office
obtained by the Washington Guardian
The travel included 88 personal trips for Holder and former Republican Attorney General Michael Mukasey, who stepped down in 2009, and 10 for Mueller, the review found. Taxpayers were reimbursed only pennies on the dollar for those personal trips under the current rules, the audit found.
On at least one occasion a trip by Holder in 2011 left the FBI without access to a Gulfstream during a counterterrorism operation, forcing agents to scramble to charter a private plane, according to documents reviewed by the Washington Guardian

Muslims excel at picking fights with other religions. If there’s a religion out there that isn’t Islam, Muslims will sooner or later get into a fight with it. Even if the religion is Islam, Muslims will still fight each other over which Islam is the right one.
But the main idea of Islamism is that the Jews are behind all the evil in the world. So when Muslims get into a fight with Buddhists, who are not that easy to provoke, their theology demands that the whole thing be explained in terms of Evil Jew Theory.

MK Levin Warns of 'Nightmare' Coalition with Labor|
Posted by jewishindy on Thursday, February 21 @ 11:27:14 EST |
: What a mess
of a "Democracy" Israel is!]Likud MK says Bayit Yehudi's inflexibility may push Likud into a coalition with leftist parties.
MK Yariv Levin (Likud / Yisrael Beytenu) warned Thursday that in view of the way Bayit Yehudi is conducting itself in the coalition talks, there is a good chance that the Labor party will also enter the next government, which has already been joined by Tzipi Livni.
Levin said that he warned before the elections that if Likud / Yisrael Beytenu fails to receive enough Knesset seats to enable it "to form a government with a small number of partners that depend on us instead of vice versa," it will be exposed to blackmail by "a plethora" of parties, and "what is worse, we will find ourselves in a situation where we require partners from the Left that have more electoral power, and a greater ability to topple the government, and that is why the dependence on them will be greater – and unfortunately, this is exactly what happened," he told Arutz Sheva.
Levin referred to the agreement between Yesh Atid and Bayit Yehudi, which have stated that neither will enter the government without the other. Instead of letting the prime minister form the government he wants, he said, these two parties are trying to dictate who his partners will be, who will be appointed to what ministerial post and "we will decide everything and we will also be able to dissolve the government at any given moment."

Arab Group: Kotel is a Muslim Site, And Jews Don't Belong There|
Posted by jewishindy on Thursday, February 21 @ 09:13:27 EST |
An Israeli Arab group says, Israel is “defiling the holiness" of the Kotel - as defined by Islam - by conducting Jewish prayers there.
: Well, that's
a reversal if there ever was one! Get the G-d damned A-rabs out of Israel and stop the true blasphemy.]
An Israeli Arab group, “The Al-Aqsa Heritage Institute,” on Thursday issued a statement demanding that Israel halt its plans to bring more Jews to the Kotel (Western Wall) – which, the group claims, is holy not to Jews, but to Muslims.
In fact, the group says, Israel is “defiling the holiness of the site” by conducting Jewish prayers there.
In Jewish tradition, the Kotel is the outer retaining wall of the Holy Temple, which stood on the Temple Mount, approximately at the same location as the Al-Aqsa Mosque. When the Holy Temple was destroyed nearly 2,000 years ago, Jews were prohibited from worshipping on the Mount, first by the Romans and then by the Muslims, and proscribed from doing so by Jewish law – and adopted the Kotel as a place of prayer, as it was the closest place to the Holy Temple as the could get.
In Islamic legend, however, the Kotel is a Muslim site – famous as the wall that Muhammad used to tie up his donkey when he ascended to heaven on his “night journey” from the Temple Mount. The “Buraq Wall,” as Islamist groups call the Kotel, is a part of the Temple Mount, and thus has the same status for Muslims as the Al-Aqsa Mosque, or the other holy places in the area.

Confirming his coalition deal with Hatnu'a, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu appeared in a press conference Tuesday night with Tzippy Livni. “We have signed a coalition agreement between the Likud/Yisrael Beiteinu and Hatnu'a,” Netanyahi said. “Livni will serve in my government as Justice Minister.”
Israel, said Netanyahu, “faces many enormous challenges, some of them unprecedented. I wish to point out that the threats from Iran, Syria, and Hizbullah are constant and ceaseless. In order to respond properly to these threats we need a government that is as large and diverse as possible that will unify the nation.
“With that, we are obligated to do everything possible to advance the peace process,” Netanyahu continued. Besides being Justice Minister, Livni “will be a senior partner in the efforts to restart negotiations with the Palestinians, with the aim of achieving a just peace between our two nations. We will achieve this under the aegis of my 2009 Bar Ilan University speech. We will establish a ministerial committee that will deal with the peace process based on the principles I have laid down. I will authorize Livni to negotiate with the Palestinians.
Netanyahu called on other parties to join his coalition. “This is not the time to harden your positions,” he said.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu decided on Tuesday evening to transfer to the Palestinian Authority some NIS 400 million Israel collected last month in tax revenue for the PA, but withheld in response to the Palestinian statehood upgrade move at the UN in November.
A source in Netanyahu’s bureau said the decision was for a one-time transfer and was due to the economic hardships facing the PA.

State Department Recruits Future Diplomats at Muslim Brotherhood Jihadist Event|

The Obama administration is covertly recruiting Muslims to work at the State Department as Foreign Service officers representing the United States in one of 265 American embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions worldwide. It appears to be part of the administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes a variety of controversial moves.
Ward held a 90-minute seminar at a recent convention sponsored by two groups—Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)—with known ties to radical Islam. Both nonprofits are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known as the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda. In fact, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that MAS was founded as the U.S. chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood which strives to indoctrinate the world with Islamic Sharia law.
Yet there was a U.S. State Department official, side by side at a radical Islamic powwow in Chicago with a number of speakers who advocate violent jihad. Among them was Kifah Mustapha, a fundraiser at terrorist organization (Holy Land Foundation) convicted of funneling millions to Hamas and Jamal Badawi, a MAS founder who praised the jihad of Gaza terrorists during a speech titled “Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom.”

If only American soldiers in Afghanistan were unemployed Democratic voters in Chicago, then they might be getting three square meals a day from the government.
But the military is the one place that Obama feels comfortable slashing expenses. While spending at an uncontrollable rate unseen since the last days of the Roman Empire in every other area, Obama has been cutting “waste” in the military like 20,000 Marines, Tricare healthcare for veterans and breakfast for soldiers
serving in areas where he would only venture accompanied by heavy firepower.
Warren Buffett and other crony capitalists can pig out on Obama’s trillion dollar deficits. As for the troops. Let them ear MRE’s
The Army has stopped serving cooked breakfasts to some of the U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan as part of its drawdown, a move that prompted troops to write home asking their families and friends to send care packages with cereal, breakfast bars and other foods.
The Army told the Washington Guardian the current cutbacks began Jan. 1, and affect about 2,700 soldiers deployed in forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan.
The Washington Guardian reported earlier this month that the current budget crisis in Congress prompted Deputy Defense Secretary Ashton Carter to write a memo order preparations for sweeping budget cuts across all military programs to begin as early as next month.
Officials stressed other comforts at the forward operating bases may also soon be reduced, such as laundry and recreation, as officials look for other ways to reduce the American footprint in advance of departing the country.
They said the meal cutbacks are currently affecting forward operating bases in more remote areas of Afghanistan and not affecting the main American bases in Kabul and Kandahar.

Obama's ATF Nominee on DOJ's Fast and Furious Design Team|

[JewishIndy Editor: Enemy forces occupy the White House. A bunch of thugs are running our government. We just argue about racism, democrats and republicans!]

As part of President Barack Obama’s 23-point gun control plan, he nominated Minnesota U.S. Attorney B. Todd Jones–who currently doubles right now as the acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives–to be the ATF director.
Jones was personally a part of the high-ranking Department of Justice unit that first met on October 26, 2009, to create the new DOJ policy that was used to justify “gunwalking” in Operation Fast and Furious. In Fast and Furious, the ATF “walked” roughly 2,000 firearms into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels. That means through straw purchasers the agency allowed sales to happen and didn’t stop the guns from being trafficked, even though they had the legal authority to do so and were fully capable of doing so.
Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and hundreds of Mexican citizens–estimates put it around at least 300–were killed with these firearms.
Obama nominated Jones after he said in his gun control plan that the “ATF has not had a confirmed director for six years. There is no excuse for leaving the key agency enforcing gun laws in America without a leader. It is time for Congress to confirm an ATF director.”

Attorney General Eric Holder Sends Himself to Prison|

Attorney General Eric Holder Promises to Investigate Himself and Send Himself to Prison
Attorney General Eric Holder didn’t just kill 300 Mexicans, he also killed irony.
And to consider a series of new federal laws imposing tough penalties on gun traffickers who help funnel weapons to dangerous criminals.
I think that we all look forward to Holder catching himself and locking himself up. It shouldn’t be a very difficult investigation even for him. It’s only a question of how much time Holder will give himself to turn himself in. And hopefully he won’t tip himself off about his own raid on himself.
Or maybe he can designate his left hand as the “bad hand” that funneled weapons to dangerous criminals and his right hand as the “good hand” that locks up those who funnel weapons to dangerous criminals and they can fight it out to see if Good Holder or Evil Holder will win out.

Obama Jobs Council Has Not Met for a Year|
Posted by jewishindy on Saturday, January 19 @ 22:04:04 EST |
But how can he find the time to focus on jobs, when he has more important things to worry about, like banning magazines with too many rounds, playing golf, promoting gay marriage, going on vacation, spending money, promoting abortion, playing golf, making a speech, illegally providing amnesty to illegal immigrants, going on vacation, giving out money to his billionaire supporters, playing golf and throwing another party.

Where do we expect Obama to find the time to meet with his own jobs council?
Barack Obama’s Jobs Council hit a notable milestone on Thursday: one year without an official meeting. The 26-member panel is also set to expire at the end of the month, unless Obama extends its tenure.
The group, formally known as the President’s Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, last convened on Jan. 17, 2012 for a White House session where it presented formal recommendations to Obama. It was the panel’s fourth official meeting since it was created in early 2011.
