Of Course

Hamas and Fatah have reached a peace deal in which they agreed to share power. Hamas has demanded that Western sanctions on the Palestinian authority now be lifted, but says it will never recognize Israel nor abide by the peace accords. "We have agreed with the Saudis to market this agreement internationally, " said Hamas according to The Age.

"We have agreed with the Saudis to market this agreement internationally. Our (Saudi) brothers are in constant contact with the Americans and Europeans," Hamas government spokesman Ghazi Hamad told Reuters. "They (the West) cannot ignore this agreement and impose their own conditions," he said. "The European Union should open a dialogue with this new government and this is the only way to have stability in the region." Nizar Rayyan, a senior Hamas leader in Gaza, welcomed the agreement reached in Mecca but said Hamas shunned Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas's call for Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who will form the new cabinet, to abide by previous peace accords. "We will never recognize Israel. There is nothing called Israel," he told Reuters. "We, in the Hamas movement, will not abide by anything."

Hamas spokesman Ismail Rudwan said: "The recognition is not an option at all, is not discussable."

Meanwhile the French are not unhappy with the result. According to the Jerusalem Post.

In Paris, French Foreign Minister Philippe Douste-Blazy said inclusion of the term "respect" in reference to Israel "is a step in the right direction toward full adherence to the demands of the international community that we hold dear, including in particular the recognition of Israel."


If the West is brought under Sharia law it will have no excuses. It will hardly be possible to argue that its leaders were deceived. That, like Neville Chamberlain, they let their idealism get the better of them. No excuse except plain illiteracy can explain the inability to comprehend this blatant statement of intent. "We have agreed with the Saudis to market this agreement internationally. ... We will never recognize Israel. There is nothing called Israel," he told Reuters. "We, in the Hamas movement, will not abide by anything."

Western weakness has little to do with Jihad, or Hamas or Fatah. It arises from the monomanaical belief that negotiations can solve everything; and that consequently, resistance will never be necessary. Hamas understands that Western Pacifism must rule out coercion at all costs; that all it has to do is wait, and all, even Israel's extinction, will be delivered, abjectly, to its doorstep.

The Saudi’s are brokering a deal which we cannot “ignore”, why not? They will not abide by previous accords, and as part of this “negotiation”, we cannot impose our own conditions? This is not a negotiation it is a set of demands. We are left with the option to further fund state sponsored terrorism?

Hamas needs more money because they have spent all they have on obtaining more weapons. It is important for them to make no concessions because Allah is on their side and the dumb shits in the West are the ones who have the guilt tainted money and the driving need to appease the lowest life forms in the MI.

It is stories like this that convinces me that WWIII is inevitable and these people desperately want to rule the world or die trying. I am all in favor of the later.

Read the fine print. Always. The UN graciously grants Serbia more time to study its proposal to grant independence to Kosovo. It's an amazing world, isn't it, when the UN can carve up countries legitimately and elected goverments can't legitimately defend themselves. And I wasn't necessarily referring to Iraq. Try Israel.

The UN mediator on Kosovo's future status said on Thursday he was willing to grant Serbia more time to consider his complex plan that most see as paving the way for the province's independence from Belgrade.

But Martti Ahtisaari, a former Finnish president, said he still expected to present his final proposal to the 15-member UN Security Council, which has to agree to the plan, before the end of March.

Look, this is an absurd carnival, I agree. Nevertheless these aren't stations along the way to the defeat of the West.

They are more likely points on the route to a series of large mushroom clouds appearing across the Arab world, following which the rest of the world will become considerably more circumspect.

It will probably take the loss of an entire Western city before this happens, but this has been pretty much inevitable for some time now, and the world will really change five minutes later.

Nor is Israel, by the way, going to take significant damage without turning a large part of the Arab world to glass. If their arsenal isn't big enough to get the job done then I imagine they are diligently adding to it right now.

"The West, on the other hand, will abide by every jot and tittle."

That's because, as is the case with police who find themselves hamstrung by criminal-rights advocates who confuse law enforcement with racism and brutality, it's a lot easier to go after the law abiding, who don't give any lip, don't present a physical danger, show up in court and pay their fines.

This 'human rights commissioner,' like most of the hothouse flowers comprising our increasingly jelly-like leadership classes, would likely soil her drawers in the presence of stone killers.

Like other forms of moral exhibitionism -- trashing the U.S. comes to mind -- it's best to rant and rave at those who don't bite back. She has no interest in confronting real human rights offenders.

And yet those in our so-called leadership classes insist -- all the while they're being snookered and bullied -- that they know what they're doing.

The UN? It already envisions itself as a sort of global slum lord with an ever-expanding constituency to maintain in post-democratic and post-capitalism squalor and dependency. And it certainly has no trouble demanding concessions of sovereignty (eg: global gun control).

if hamas, the elected democratic government of palestine (according the world) rejects peace with the "non-recognized" israel does this:

1. reject "palestine" from a seat in the UN, even an observer seat, since it's position is not in accordance with the UN's charter:

"Membership in the United Nations is open to all other peace-loving states which accept the obligations contained in the present Charter and, in the judgment of the Organization, are able and willing to carry out these obligations.

2. If Hamas aka Palestine, does not accept israel's right to be nor any agreements that previous "palestinian" governments have signed does this allow Israel to:

cut off and end all tax collection for Palestine

cut off all water, electricity and food traveling to gaza from Israel

expand and conquer any "palestinian" lands it chooses and throw off all arab populations that happen there, since what is the difference if all of israel is illegal in palestine's mind, what difference if there is an additional 100 square miles disputed?

shoot to kill any palestinians that throw rocks, bottles, knives, firebombs at any israeli?

use cluster bombs for border control?

use land mines on any area that palestinian liberation attacks generate from

destruction of any and all buildings over one story in height in any palestinian city, since there is a state of war now?

just wondering?

It's interesting to watch the way that whatever defensive measure requires the least current effort unfailingly becomes in Western countries a religion subscribed to by much of the population, including many of its leaders.

This is how over the years the UN, pacifism, 'human rights', and 'international law' have exerted an appeal over and above, and indeed unrelated to, any evidence of their effectiveness.

Each of these has in turn become a sort of 'mental Maginot Line', a justification for abandoning more active forms of defense.

Our opponents don't even have to be smart or organized to take advantage of this. It's so obvious that even the Palestinians, who trip over their own robes every time they try to do anything else, have it figured out.

One has to wonder whether, if a missile defense system eventually gets built and looks even moderately effective, whether the left will, in a startling reversal, suddenly flip on the issue and demand that we shelter behind it and drop all other forms of defense.

Stranger things have happened.

"We have agreed with the Saudis to market this agreement internationally."

Hamas will market New Terror!!! A more overt, state sponsored, and state protected variant of the barbarism they currently aspire too. Maybe they can use AP to Photoshop the old 'New Coke' ads to save money!!!

"We will never recognize Israel. There is nothing called Israel"

That is an agreement all Fascists can start with. Actually, not all Fascists. Many Fascists find other scapegoats - but the real ones can always hearken to the golden oldie!!! We westerners can dust off the Chamberlain backgrounders on how to deal with Fascists – especially when we identify ‘a man we can work with’. Heck, maybe dust off the ‘Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact’ if we are really adventurous and/or duplicitous!

"We, in the Hamas movement, will not abide by anything."

There always has to be a starting point, eh. The Global Community has to find the lowest common denominator to initiate a frank and open discussion. I think this might be the lowest common denominator ever brought into the peace process. Maybe even a bit lower than ceding a sovereign nation to Nazi Germany.

"We, in the Hamas movement, will not abide by anything."

So, where does the Quartet begin discussions with the new "peace partner" in the Palestinian government? Bohgi may have found the lowest common denominator, where Hamas has built a wall that separates itself from the world community.

Perhaps we ask the rest of the world to align itself relative to Hamas position. Are you with it or against it? No ambiguity, just a simple yes or no answer.

IMO the answer will divide the world into camps that want to be part of the world community and those who don't. Those who don't are a threat to world order and should lose all representation at or by the UN. A responsible UN, that lived by it's charter, would declare those nations as rogue states and treat any aggressive behavior by those rogue states to be a declaration of war on the world community. The UN would be required to depose the ruling regime of rogue states.

So simple yet the UN is so corrupt that it can't even ask the questions nor fulfill it's charter. So...we continue.

Although posted elsewhere, this gives food for thought.

Spengler is at his best.

“A friend in financial markets observes that the world appears to be safer than at any time on record, judging by the cost of insurance against economic disaster. That is, the cost of buying options on the Standard and Poor's 500 stock index stands at the lowest level since 1986, when options on the index first were traded.”

“If space aliens were to transport all of them to another planet Tuesday next, world markets would not notice. By the same token, if the Sunnis and Shi'ites of Iraq and Lebanon were to eat each other up like the Gingham Dog and the Calico Cat, and the Palestinians of Gaza were to annihilate one another, the impact on the world would fall below the threshold of observation.”

“The present conflict in the Middle East is not between Arab and Jew, but between Arabs and Jews who seek their way in the modern world on the one hand, and Arabs and Persians who reject the modern world on the other.”

“If individuals or indeed entire peoples are determined to destroy themselves, it is extremely difficult to prevent them from doing so at length. The tragedy, I expect, will continue in Iraq, as it did in Spain 1936-39, or the United States 1861-65, until there no longer are sufficient young men to put into the line. The world will little notice or care.”

I might agree with Spengler except that in the Spanish and American civil wars the disagreement was an internal matter. Iraq may be internal now, but it will become external unless a moderate democracy wins. And the muslim demographic is against them running out of fighters. Additionally, past conflicts didn't involve nations or NGOs with weapons capable of ending civilizations.

I wouldn't purchase options based upon the premise that things will work out if we just ignore these Dark Age fanatics.

Choosing the right perfume can be difficult and because it is also considered an intimate gift buying the wrong perfume can backfire on you and get you the opposite result of that which you hoped for.

The first thing you need to do is do some homework, meaning research. Look at your lady's perfume bottles, the ones that are nearly empty will be her favorites. If there is one there that is nearly full chances are she doesn't wear it often or doesn't like it. Hint around and ask her what types of fragrances she likes and dislikes.

Humans are very sensory oriented and our sense of smell is no different. Certain perfumes can elicit strong reactions in both the wearer and the person reacting to the scent. Perfumes are made not only to attract but to also relax someone. If you aren't totally sure what kind of perfume to buy you can always play it safe and get something in the aromatherapy line. If you go this route, bear in mind that vanilla scents are considered to relax and a peppermint or lemon scent will be more stimulating.hgdemmi

Charles has posted the demographic figures here from the US Government.
The markets may not care if most of the entire country resembles south central LA, as long as the economy hums along on a path destined to result in a bifurcated populace of peons and the elite, but to me the most of what made this country great will have been squandered in the process.
