Report: Hamas Now Officially Part of The Muslim Brotherhood…


Since Hamas is a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) by the U.S. State Department can the Obama regime continue to have official ties to the Muslim Brotherhood without being in violation of the law?
(Ynet) — A senior Hamas source told the London-based Arabic-language al-Hayat newspaper on Saturday that the Palestinian organization has joined the global movement of the Muslim Brotherhood.
According to the source, the move took place as early as two months ago. The expression “a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood — Palestine” has been added to Hamas’ official name — “The Islamic Resistance Movement.”
The source added that the move had nothing to do with recent changes in the Middle East following the Arab Spring.
“Following thorough discussions, which lasted more than a year and a half, we saw the need to take this step as the movement is growing and there was a need to lead it to independence instead of being dependent on the Muslim Brotherhood organization in Jordan.
“Hamas no longer belongs to any organization, but has become completely independent,” he said, adding that the group was now part of the global Muslim Brotherhood organization and was officially represented there.
Despite its official admission into the global organization, the source noted that Hamas would continue carrying the flag of armed resistance.

What a Gutsy Call, President Pansy! - by Unified Patriots


Remember when Obama authorized the Navy Seals to attack the presumed hideout of bin Laden? The liberals were so proud of President Present because he was actually able to make a decision. The rest of us couldn’t see what he was bragging about because we figured any adult who could fog a glass would have been able to choose the right door in that little contest.
I wonder if they’re still proud of President Idiot Sans-Savant now that he has willingly allowed our stealth drone technology to fall into the hands of the mad mullahs of Iran rather than take a chance that they’ll fall out of love with the Great Satan? By now you’ve heard that Iran has one of our drones, but did you know that President SCOAMF made a deliberate decision to let them keep it rather than destroy it?
U.S. officials have confirmed that Iran has recovered an American top secret RQ-170 drone. The drone reportedly went down near Kashmar in northeastern Iran about 120 miles from the Afghanistan border after U.S. remote pilots “lost control” of the unmanned state-of-the-art vehicle.
Jennifer Griffin of Fox News exposes evidence that Barack Obama wimped-out when faced with a decision to either protect American intelligence and national security or upset the Iranians.
“With early knowledge that the aircraft had likely remained intact, the senior U.S. official also told Fox News that President Obama was presented with three separate options for retrieving or destroying the drone. The president ultimately decided not to proceed with any of the plans because it could have been seen as an act of war, the official told Fox News.”
“Among the options the U.S. considered were sending in a special-ops team to retrieve the drone; sending in a team to blow up the aircraft; and launching an airstrike to destroy it.”

So which is it, President Gutsy Call or President Numb Nuts? I think the answer is clear. We’ve come a long way down from the first President of this great land to the 44th. Thanks a lot, 52%.

The Obama Administration: When it Comes to Terrorism, Don’t Say Islam

December 10, 2011

The great majority of terrorists targeting Americans will tell you up front that Islam is their motivation for jihad or “holy war.” That is why it is both baffling and disturbing that a new Obama administration memo forbids the mention of Islam in the “terrorism” context.
It should be noted that this is the same administration that changed “terrorism” to “man made disaster” while our wars abroad were rephrased as “Overseas Contingency Operations.”
Such a redefinition of terms in the hopes it will change reality gives us an outstanding glimpse into the minds of the radicals who seek to remake this country. Liberals believe that through massive propaganda and the cynical use of euphemisms they can make their solipsistic dream worlds become reality.
The left’s approach to the war on terror is thus a bit like the childhood game where the toddler covers his eyes and thinks that mommy can’t see her. The illusion may provide a good kick, but ultimately, it’s just an illusion.
More hide-and-go-seek with the truth can be seen with the earlier re-branding of the Fort Hood assassin’s case, one where the Muslim terrorist screamed “Allahu Akhbar!” before killing 11 and wounding 31, from a domestic terrorism incident to a case of workplace violence.”
The Muslims are not going to care one wit if America stops fighting the war on terrorists. The Democrat Party can be as sensitive and as politically correct as it wants. We can subject grandmas and small children to random pat downs so as not to offend the sensibilities of people who think women are property and homosexuality is a sin against Allah. But Muslims won’t return the favor. They are not going to think we’re noble and enlightened, they are going to think we’re infidels. And weak infidels at that.
As delusional as Islamic terrorists are, they don’t think America will disappear if they close their eyes. But they do think Americans will disappear if they close their eyes  after detonating a bomb vest in a public square.

Report: Terrain altered near Iran nuclear site

Satellite images show no evidence of explosion at Isfahan plant, but indicate 'significant transformation,' US group says
Published: 12.09.11, 19:32 / Israel News

Satellite images show buildings have been razed and bulldozers were at work at an underground structure near a site where Iran processes uranium, a US-based think tank said on Friday, without offering an explanation.

The Institute for Science and International Security said it had studied satellite photographs of a nuclear site near the Iranian city of Isfahan, after reports two weeks ago that an explosion could be heard in the city.

Related stories:

It found no evidence of damage from an explosion at the nuclear site, but signs of construction work at a site 400 meters away that showed a "significant transformation".

Western countries pay close attention to Iran's uranium processing because they believe it could be used to produce material for an atomic bomb.

The Isfahan site produces uranium gas which can be fed into centrifuges elsewhere to produce the purified uranium needed to run a power plant or make a bomb. Iran says its nuclear program is peaceful.

Attention has been focused on the Isfahan site since November 28, when Iranian media reported an explosion could be heard in the nearby city.

In conflicting reports, the head of the provincial judiciary was quoted as saying a blast could be heard, but the deputy governor denied there had been a big explosion.

'No visible evidence of explosion'

ISIS said the underground facility was originally a salt mine dating back to at least the 1980s. It was lately used for storage, although it was unclear what was kept there, ISIS said.

The November 28 report of the sound of a blast in Isfahan came less than three weeks after a massive explosion at a military base near Tehran that killed more than a dozen members of the Revolutionary Guardincluding the head of its missile forces.

Iran said that explosion, which could be heard as far away as the capital, was caused by an accident while weapons were being moved.

ISIS said it had acquired satellite imagery of the Isfahan nuclear site taken in early December.

"There does not appear to be any visible evidence of an explosion, such as building damage or debris, on the grounds of the known nuclear facilities or at the tunnel facility directly north of the Uranium Conversion Facility," it said.

It said, however, it had identified a facility about 400 meters from the perimeter of the nuclear site that "underwent a significant transformation recently."

An August 27 satellite image showed that it consisted of a ramp leading underground with several buildings along the surface. But in a December 5 image the buildings were gone, heavy equipment could be seen around the site and there was evidence of bulldozing activity, ISIS said.

"It is unclear how and why the buildings are no longer present at the site," it added.

IDF Chief of Staff Lieutenant General Benny Gantz called in top army officials to evaluate the security situation as rockets continued to bombard southern communities Friday.

Around 10 pm three rockets exploded in open areas near Sderot and in the Eshkol and Hof Ashkelon regional councils, bringing the total of rockets fired into Israel on Friday to a total of 12.

Army officials estimated that the Strip's two dominant organizations, Hamas and the Islamic Jihad, are keeping a low profile in the latest round of fire in order to avoid escalating the violence further. Instead, the smaller groups, including the Popular Resistance Committees and Fatah al-Islam – whose two members were killed in an IAF strike Thursday – are responsible for the attacks.

However, the IDF did not rule out the possibility that the larger groups will initiate fire on Israel, and is preparing to retaliate.

Iron Dome's coverage extended

Army officials noted that while in past rounds of violence the Iron Dome missile defense systems protected only large population centers like Beersheba, Ashdod and Ashkelon, this time the system's coverage extends to a larger area, due to a third battery that was placed in the region after undergoing repairs.

The system intercepted one rocket that was fired towards Ashdod on Friday afternoon, while another exploded in the nearby Beer Tuvia Regional Council. Friday's barrage began in the morning with a Qassam exploding in the Shaar Hanegev Regional Council, and continued throughout the day, hitting open areas in the Hof Ashkelon and Eshkol regional councils, as well as near Sderot. No injuries or damage were reported.

Five rockets hit the southern region on Thursday evening. Overnight, The IDF carried out a strike against two targets in the Gaza Strip, which Palestinian reports claim left one person dead.

Gaza sources said that a Hamas training camp near Gaza city was hit in the strike and that shrapnel hit nearby residential buildings. One person was killed and 25 others, mostly women and children, were wounded as a result. (Hamas uses women and children as "human" shields)

BHO's hollow response to these attacks is astounding, as he simply admonishes both sides (??!) for "restraint".  How much "restraint" would the USA show if we were being attacked by our neighbors?  How much "restraint" have we demonstrated these past 10 plus years, when our troops are thousands of miles away, fighting terrorism?  How long would it take USA to call up our military if Americans were being shot at by missiles? ....

HAMAS: "Entitlement through Victimization" - by Bee Sting

HAMAS - The Real Murderer of Children

HAMAS - Human Shield Confession
HAMAS -- In Their Own Voices

You have heard the voices of the Palestinian Hamas Terrorist organization admit that they will use "human shields" (and they do!) to strike at the very heart of Israel and then, in their own pathetic voices, cry "foul" to the world, seeking sympathy because Israel's IDF dared strike back in its defense mechanism to protect Israeli citizens.

Apparently, Hamas is not in the "character building" business; nor do they believe in protecting their own women and children, as they go about their real business of causing as much terror as they are capable of doing, by shooting their rockets and missiles into the Israeli neighborhoods and with each senseless attack, their missiles reach further and wider into Israel's cities and towns.  

Why would the rulers of the Palestinians in Gaza use human shields - forcing Palestinian women and children to die - in its hatred towards Israelis?  For what purpose would even terrorists not give a damn about the safety of their own people?  I have an idea why and will gladly share it with you this evening.

I personally believe they are willing to use human shields as a distraction.  Yes, a distraction!

How so?  Simply by generating more news conferences for the media and more headlines that announce to the world that "poor" Palestinian children died due to an IDF attack (in response to their latest "gifts" to Israel, packaged up and shipped over its border, by way of rockets).  Every time headlines around the world report on those "bad" Israelis murdering Palestinian children, Hamas advances its real goal, which is to divert attention from its unprovoked aggression.  And the world eats this stuff up like candy apples!  

Hamas PM Haniyeh and bodyguardsBlaming Israel for a lack of peace is a sporting game and anyone and everyone plays the game.  Hardly a whisper from the same media when an Israeli family, or child is murdered by Hamas terrorism.  The value of a Jewish life is of no value to the world's sympathy or compassion.  But just let one Palestinian citizen placed in harm's way by Hamas die, or become injured in the line of fire, and the world DEMANDS Israel cease from defending its own citizens and nation.  The world has become the "guardians" of terrorism.  .

The world gives terrorism through Hamas the false entitlement of "victimization" while pointing to the democratic State of Israel, Land of Ziyon, and screams "Aggressors".  Doubt my word?  See the most recent headline in the Jerusalem Post: "Hamas to Arab states: Stop "Israeli aggression", dated December 9, 2011.  When will the world stop listening to terrorist propaganda and stand with Israel, a nation fighting terrorism on its own soil 24-7, seven days a week, rain or shine?

See Elder of Ziyon: "Muslim Brotherhood website filled with anti-semitic canards" .. remember, Hamas is an off-shoot of the "Brotherhood".  This should eliminate any talks from this Administration of the Brotherhood being "MODERATE".

In closing, may their memories be blessed forever, I am posting a few of the thousands of victims of Palestinian terrorism:
