OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
News from The Jerusalem Prayer Team
Even as Secretary of State John Kerry was meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas in Paris this week, his aides were scrambling to downplay the damage done by a slanderous attack on Israel from chief Palestinian negotiator, Saeb Erekat. Erekat claimed publicly that Israel was planning to derail the peace talks by either invading Gaza or hoping to assassinate President Abbas. These baseless claims are taken as gospel truth by the Palestinian people, who are daily bombarded with anti-Israeli propaganda. They believe the lies told by their leaders. The peace process is not going to produce peace-the Palestinians do not want peace. They want Israel destroyed.

News from The Israel Project
Both Washington and Baghdad continued to scramble on Tuesday in the wake of a Reuters expose documenting a $195 million security deal, spread across eight different contracts, which would see Iraq purchasing weapons from Iran. The move would be violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions prohibiting trading arms with the Islamic Republic.
Ongoing political warfare in Turkey – which has pitted the country’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) against rival Islamists linked to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen – has generated renewed calls for the resignation of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, after the publication of audio recordings that seemed to document Erodgan and his son Bilal discussing how to hide immense sums of money.
Turkey has become a key global hub of illicit and terrorist financing – undermining U.S. counter-terrorism efforts against Sunni jihadists and playing a key role in busting Washington’s sanctions against Iran – according to a new report published on Friday by Jonathan Schanzer, vice president for research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD).

FBI Agent: U.S. has Evidence to Indict CAIR for Terror
WND reports: The Justice Department has enough incriminating evidence to file terrorism charges against the Council on American-Islamic Relations and its founders but has chosen not to indict the Washington-based group and its leaders at this time, a veteran FBI agent reveals in a shocking new book.

Texas Police Double as Islamic Terrorist Militia
Freedomoutpost.com reports:The jihad terror-trainings compounds in the U.S., a news story I first broke back in 2007, are growing. And now I have obtained exclusive information showing that one of them has placed members on local police forces, ensuring that nothing is done to stop or even monitor their activities.

According to the documents, the FBI has been concerned about these facilities for about 12 years, but cannot act against them because the U.S. State Department has not yet declared that their umbrella group, MOA [Muslims of the Americas]/Jamaat ul-Fuqra, as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.” Read more.
