04-27-07 - DHS releases security funds The U.S. Homeland Security Department released $24 million in funds for securing non-profits. Friday's was the second such release of funds; most of an earlier allotment of $25 million went to securing Jewish institutions. The delay in releasing the funds, first earmarked in 2006, was caused by DHS bureaucrats who preferred to reserve the money for imminent rather than potential attacks. Jewish groups, backed by lawmakers in Congress, lobbied for the funds' use for potential attacks. Last year, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff intervened to release the money.

04-27-07 - Crist's Visit To Israel Has Much At Stake The trip is at least in part a result of Crist's longtime friendship with U.S. Rep.

Dan Gelber, D-Miami Beach; Adam Hasner, R-Delray Beach; and Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston

04-27-07 - Tensions Run High After Sunni Killings Lahoud's office issued a statement urging Lebanese people to be alert to conspiracies, and to stop anyone trying to play dirty. Past experience has shown that all confrontations followed provoking incidents, the statement said. Could be the work of someone who wants the Lebanese to hate the Shia.

04-27-07 - Lawmakers Want PBS to Air Spiked Film on Islam The film - co-produced by Burke, a Hollywood producer, and Frank Gaffney and Alex Alexiev of the Center for Security Policy - deals with the experiences of moderate Muslims who have fallen foul of Islamists. Frank Gaffney - neocon. Any film about Muslims made by a neocon is undoubtedly (pro-Israel) propaganda. PBS is now being commandeered by Zionists.

04-27-07 - Lebanon: One Unexploded Bomb Per Person According to the Belgians as many as 800,000 unexploded ordnance (UXO), and possibly more, still remain. Meanwhile, scores of Lebanese civilians have died from contacting cluster bombs. More than 200 have been wounded, most of them severely

04-27-07 - Three Ex-Terrorists 'Former terrorists' don't get to enter the country, let alone traipse around giving speeches at campuses nationwide. That is, unless they are doing so for propaganda purposes for the benefit of the Israeli lobby. Real terrorists are either jailed, deported, or barred from entering America at all - as has been the case in numerous recent examples dealing with Palestinians, among others. Americans are being deceived.

04-27-07 - Israel's military denies incursion into Lebanon The Lebanese army had said a 10-member Israeli patrol crossed the electronic fence on the Saddani hills between the towns of Kfarshuba and Shebaa and entered up to 50 meters and 100 meters (yards) into Lebanese territory. A unit from the UN Interim Force intervened and forced the Israeli patrol to withdraw, it said.

04-27-07 - Israel: Controlling Jewish Destiny Does not Require Controlling that of the Palestinians Contrary to some of the rhetoric emanating from Jewish organizations here, no one I spoke to in Israel likened Israel's situation today to that of European Jews in the 1930's, with Ahmadinejad playing the role of Hitler. Israelis find that kind of rhetoric both laughable and offensive. From admitted Zionist M.J. Rosenberg.

04-27-07 - Failing to Hold Israel Accountable for War Crimes in Lebanon In late January the State Department delivered a potentially explosive report to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Joe Biden, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. The classified report asserts that Israel may have violated the Arms Export Control Act with its use of American-made cluster munitions this past summer in Lebanon. Multiple contacts to both offices indicate neither Biden nor Pelosi has any intention of pursuing the matter. In contrast, a congressional investigation 25 years ago helped persuade President Ronald Reagan to suspend cluster munitions to Israel for six years. This Congress, however, will not call Israel to account for its actions.
The US won't even hold Israel accountable for war crimes it committed against these guys.. Israel is almost never held to account by us or anyone for its flagrant violations of law, which only serves to encourage them to continue to do so.
