Netanyahu Condemns U.N. for Allowing Ahmadinejad to Deliver Address

Good for him. I wish our elected cockroaches would follow his lead. But they won’t.

From Fox News:

Holding aloft evidence of Hitler’s Final Solution, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday railed against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his denial of the Holocaust and scolded the United Nations for allowing Ahmadinejad to speak during its opening session of the 64th U.N. General Assembly.

With detailed reminders in hand of the war that sent 6 million Jews to their deaths in concentration camps, including construction blueprints for Auschwitz, Netanyahu took his turn at the dais to recall the agreement within the world body to create the Jewish state and express astonishment at what he witnessed a day earlier in that organization’s great hall.

He commended those who boycotted Ahmadinejad’s speech, but condemned those who allowed it.

Iran Awaits Ayatollah’s Nod to Build Atomic Bomb

Now, while the Lame Stream Media and the rest of the world “speculates”, I will let my learned readers “decide”. After, I have asked the following questions: How do we know they do not already have such a weapon? Just because the media and the powers that be around the world say so? And, what great plan does the “world” have for stopping them if they do?

From the Times of London:

Iran has perfected the technology to create and detonate a nuclear warhead and is merely awaiting the word from its Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to produce its first bomb, Western intelligence sources have told The Times of London.

The sources said that Iran completed a research programme to create weaponised uranium in the summer of 2003 and that it could feasibly make a bomb within a year of an order from its Supreme Leader.

A U.S. National Intelligence Estimate two years ago concluded that Iran had ended its nuclear arms research programme in 2003 because of the threat from the American invasion of Iraq. But intelligence sources have told The Times that Tehran had halted the research because it had achieved its aim — to find a way of detonating a warhead that could be launched on its long-range Shehab-3 missiles.

Report: Israel Plans to Deport Cynthia McKinney After Seizing Her Gaza-Bound Boat

Cynthia McKinney the craziest United States House of Representative and ex-presidential candidate in the history of the world. But, she is the gift that keeps on giving to this humble blog.

From Fox News:

Israel plans to deport former U.S. lawmaker and Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney and 20 other human rights activists who were aboard a relief boat seized by an Israeli naval ship Tuesday after it refused to stay away from an Israeli blockade of Gaza.

Authorities took the activists to Ben Gurion International Airport in Tel Aviv where they await deportation, according to a news report in Israel.

McKinney, a longtime advocate for Palestinians, said her Greek-flagged boat, the Spirit of Humanity, was carrying medical supplies, cement, olive trees and children’s toys to Gaza when it was intercepted by the Israeli navy.

The Free Gaza Movement organized the trip for the activists who hail from different countries, including Ireland, Britain and Bahrain.

We all live in a yellow submarine, yellow submarine, yellow submarine. We all live in a yellow submarine.

Lebanon warns militants: Surrender or else

Things are heating up in Lebanon…

From CNN:

Lebanon’s
defense minister issued an ultimatum Wednesday to Islamic militants
barricaded in a Palestinian refugee camp to surrender or face a
military onslaught, as the army reinforced its positions, raising fears
of what could be a bloody showdown.

Fighters from the al Qaeda-inspired Fatah al-Islam militant group vowed not to give up and to resist any Lebanese assault.

You
have to like their attitude, this is the only language they understand.
You must negotiate from a position of strength. Now, if they defy them
we will see if they mean what they say. If not they will show weakness
and be doomed.

Israel to lift Lebanon blockade

From the BBC:

Israel says it will lift its air and sea blockade of Lebanon on Thursday, at 1800 local time (1500 GMT).

The blockade dates back to the start of its conflict with Hezbollah guerrillas in July. Israel says it wants measures to ensure no more arms reach Hezbollah.

International pressure has been building on Israel to lift the embargo, which has remained in place despite a three-week-old ceasefire.

The German navy is expected to play a major role in monitoring the coast.

UN officials have said German boats will lead a contingent of naval vessels from other countries – including France, Italy, Greece and the UK – in policing the coast.

Correspondents say supervising Lebanon’s airspace and coastline is the first major test for the UN force charged with keeping the peace and preventing arms shipments from reaching Hezbollah.

They say the lifting of the blockade means Lebanon can begin rebuilding following Israel’s massive bombardment of the south, and normal trade and travel routes can be restored.

Well, let us see how this all works out, shall we?

Annan: Syria Promises to Enforce Arms Embargo on Hezbollah

From FNC:

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Friday that Syria would step up border patrols and work with the Lebanese army to stop the flow of weapons to Hezbollah.

Syria will increase its own patrols along the Lebanon-Syria border, and establish joint patrols with the Lebanese army “when possible,” Annan said after meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus.

Assad made no public comments after their meeting, but Annan spoke with reporters at the Damascus airport before he departed midday for Qatar.

The U.N. resolution that halted fighting between Israel and Hezbollah calls for an arms embargo on the guerrilla group, and for Lebanon to “secure its borders and other entry points.”

Annan said Assad informed him that Syria would “take all necessary measures” to implement paragraph 15 of U.N. resolution 1701, which calls on countries to prevent the sale or supply of weapons to entities in Lebanon without the consent of the Lebanese government or U.N. peacekeepers.

A show of hands, who thinks Syria is being honest? Come on, who believes that Syria will stop Iran, their ally, from re-arming Hezbollah?
