This issue looks at weapons found near Garden Tomb, more rocket attacks against Israel, Netanyahu’s response to the world’s call to wait, America’s tolerance for terror, more evidence for Obama’s fake birth certificate, and commentary on the recent embassy attacks.
OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
Despite my decision to post only once/week, I will add additional posts when I am able. This is one of those times.
Hamas Weapons Uncovered near Garden Tomb
David Zauber reports: On Tuesday, Jerusalem police reported that on 8 August they
uncovered a sizeable weapons cache concealed inside a room hidden behind a vegetable market in eastern Jerusalem, between the Damascus Gate and the Garden Tomb. In addition to weapons, the room’s walls were covered with photos of “martyrs” and Hamas flags and related equipment, as well as NIS 250,000 in cash. Police have arrested five Israeli Arabs from Jerusalem and three Palestinians from the Hebron area in connection with the discovery.
News from the Jerusalem Prayer Team
Schools in southern Israel were closed on Sunday because of continuing rocket attacks from Gaza. In the little town of Netivot near the Gaza border, at least two homes were destroyed in a missile attack. These attacks occur almost every day. I talked to Israeli leaders while I was in Israel last week, and while they are doing everything they can to defend their people, they simply do not have the resources and time to protect every Jewish person.
In some of his most direct and pointed remarks yet on the crisis with Iran, my dear, long-time friend Prime Minister Netanyahu said this week, “The world tells Israel, ‘Wait. There’s still time.’ And I say: ‘Wait for what? Wait until when?’ Those in the international community who refuse to put red lines before Iran don’t have a moral right to place a red light before Israel. If Iran knows that there is no deadline, what will it do? Exactly what it’s doing. It’s continuing, without any interference, towards obtaining nuclear weapons capability and from there, nuclear bombs.”
On September 23, 1980, during the Carter-Reagan presidential race, I met with the head of Israeli intelligence, Isser Harel, who told me that America was developing a dangerous tolerance for terror. He said, “America has the power but not the will to fight terrorism. Terrorists have the will but not the power.” He further said all that would change with time because Arab oil could buy more than tents. Harel prophetically predicted that the first terrorist attack on American soil would be on New York City’s tallest building.
IT’S NEWS TO ME
Israeli Science: Obama Birth Certificate Is a Fake
Freedomoutpost.com reports: Former science adviser to Israeli Prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Israel Hanukoglu, Ph.D. created the website Israel Science and Technology, which is a national database and directory of science and technology-related websites in Israel. Recently, they have produced a report that is both scientific and technological in regards Barack Obama’s birth certificate that has been uploaded to WhiteHouse.gov. Read more.
“We are all Osama!”
Jay Sekulow reports: As radicals attacked the U.S. Embassy in Egypt, they chanted “Obama! Obama! We are all Osama!” – a message to our President of their support for al-Qaeda’s former leader. Our flag was then torn down and set ablaze. When assistance arrived, a black flag used by Al-Qaeda was flying over our embassy. In Libya and Egypt, on the anniversary of September 11, four Americans were murdered and our embassies attacked. We send billions of dollars in taxpayer funds to these countries. It must end.

U.S. Ambassador Raped by Muslims Before Killing – Arab Media Reports
DebbieSchlussel reports: Was U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens raped by Muslims before they murdered him at the compound along with three other U.S. officials? That’s the claim being made by Tayvar, a Lebanese Arabic news site. It’s certainly a credible scenario-we know that Libyan Muslims anally raped Muammar Qaddafi with some sort of implement before they murdered him. That’s how they behave in this part of the world, this religion, this ideology-whether or not someone in America made an anti-Mohammed movie. Read more.
Hillary Ignored Warnings
TeaParty.org reports: Today, the Independent is reporting shocking details about the attack on the Libyan consulate that resulted in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. The details are so explosive that they will result in a Congressional investigation. In fact, they’re so explosive that they should result in the resignation of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The only question now: What did Hillary Clinton know, and when did she know it?
Yesterday, we reported that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was responsible under the law for the “security policies and programs that provide for the protection of all US government personnel … on official duty abroad.” Clinton herself seemed bewildered by the attacks on the Libyan consulate, asking, “How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”
But according to the Independent, she had no reason to be puzzled. Quoting senior diplomatic sources, the paper reports, “the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted.” Nonetheless, “no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and ‘lockdown,’ under which movement is severely restricted.”
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
Why do they lock gas station bathrooms? Are they afraid somebody will clean them?
