Thousands of (IDIOTIC) Christians march in Jerusalem in support of IsraHell

Waving blue and white Israeli flags, thousands of evangelical Christians from around the world filled streets of downtown Jerusalem on Thursday in a show of support for the Jewish state.

The annual march during the week-long Jewish Sukkot holiday brings together Christians from dozens of countries.

Evangelical Christians are known as strong supporters of Israel, providing financial help and political backing, especially in the U.S.­ Even so, their hard-line views toward Palestinians and suspect religious motivations make some moderate Israelis and Jews abroad uncomfortable.

“This is the real United Nations,” said Sheila Hakes, 41, from Alabama. “Israelis are our brothers and sisters, so we must protect them from Iran and evil,” a reference to Iran’s suspicious nuclear program, adding, “Jesus will come here again.”

Evangelical support for Israel is rooted in Christian Zionism, which calls for the return of Jewish exiles to the Holy Land to fulfill Biblical prophecies. Over the past several decades, key figures in the evangelical movement have lobbied the U.S. government to give greater support for Israel.

Thursday’s event was organized by the International Christian Embassy of Jerusalem, a group that promotes ties between Israel and the world’s Christian communities. The group also sponsored a conference this week that drew more than 5,000 people from nearly 90 countries, including 25 parliamentarians from various nations.

Another prominent group, the International Fellowship of Christians and Jews, said it raises more than $110 million a year for charitable causes in Israel.

This strong relationship could be important in a U.S. ­election year. Evangelicals make up a powerful voting bloc, and some cast their votes based  on a candidate’s position toward Israel. That is likely to help Republican candidate Mitt Romney, who has frequently criticized Obama’s foreign policy, saying the president has “thrown Israel under the bus.”

One of this week’s participants, U.S.­ Rep. Trent Franks, a Republican from Arizona, used the conference to criticize Obama’s Mideast policy. The American president has had a frosty relationship with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, disagreeing over key issues like Jewish settlements in the West Bank and how to confront Iran’s nuclear program.

“It breaks my heart to see the president of the United States reserve more criticism for Israel for building homes in their capital city than he does for [Iranian President Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad for building nuclear weapons with which to threaten the peace and security of the entire free world,” Franks said.

The relationship between evangelical Christians and Israel isn’t without its wrinkles. Many Israelis are troubled by what they suspect is the source of the unqualified support – a belief by some evangelical groups in an apocalyptic battle between good and evil in which Jesus returns, and Jews either accept Christianity or perish.

An ultra-Orthodox Jewish former mayor of Jerusalem, Uri Lupolianski, refused to accept funds from evangelical Christians for fear of their proselytizing. His successor, the current mayor, Nir Barkat, has revoked the policy, but some skepticism still persists.

Moderate Israelis are also uneasy with evangelical backing, as the Christians back the hard-line nationalist Israeli camp that opposes giving up control of any of the West Bank, though the majority of Israelis favor creation of a Palestinian state there, and even Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a veteran hawk, has grudgingly accepted that.

Israel’s relations with Christians have also been strained by a series of recent vandalism attacks, including this week, in which anti-Christian graffiti was spray-painted on churches and monasteries.

Israel has about 155,000 Christian citizens, less than 2 percent of its 7.9 million population, but the repeated defacing of their sacred sites has shocked the country and drawn official condemnation. Extremist Jewish settlers, angry over what they consider pro-Palestinian policies by the Israeli government, are suspected.

Speaking to reporters, Israeli Cabinet Minister Yuli Edelstein dismissed the vandalism as the work of “a few crazies” and thanked participants for supporting Israel. He said the conference “allays the feeling in Israel that the world is against us.”

Leia Vaks, a 28-year old Israeli who handed out snacks at the colorful parade, said she was pleased by the turnout .”This shows the world that Israel isn’t alone,” she said, smiling.

Ex-defense Chief Says Attack On Iran Would Be Disastrous

NOVANEWS

hamptonroads.com

Painting a picture of internal political dysfunction in a dangerous world, former Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned Wednesday night that a U.S. or Israeli attack on Iran would have disastrous consequences.

Neither the United States nor Israel is capable of wiping out Iran’s nuclear capability, he said, and “such an attack would make a nuclear-armed Iran inevitable. They would just bury the program deeper and make it more covert.”

Iran could respond by disrupting world oil traffic and launching a wave of terrorism across the region, Gates said.

“The results of an American or Israeli military strike on Iran could, in my view, prove catastrophic, haunting us for generations in that part of the world.”

First in this season’s Norfolk Forum speaker series, Gates spoke to an audience of nearly 2,000 in Chrysler Hall.

United Nations sanctions aimed at discouraging Iran’s nuclear ambitions are starting to have an impact on the Iranian economy, he said, and “that’s our best chance going forward, to ratchet up the economic pressure and diplomatic isolation to the point where the Iranian leadership concludes that it actually hurts Iranian security and, above all, the security of the regime itself, to continue to pursue nuclear weapons.”

And while Israeli anxiety over Iran’s intentions is understandable, he added, America should make it clear to Israel’s leaders that “they do not have a blank check to take action that could do grave harm to American vital interests.”

Meanwhile, Gates warned, the United States is paralyzed by partisan gridlock that threatens the nation with financial insolvency.

The combination of across-the-board spending cuts and tax increases set to take effect in January, put in motion by Congress’ inability to agree on how to reduce the ballooning national debt, would do grave damage to the military and virtually every other essential government operation and could throw the country into a new recession, he said.

The central problem, Gates said, is that both major parties have been captured by their ideological extremes.

“The moderate center, the foundation of our political system, is not holding.

“Too many of our politicians seem more concerned with winning elections and scoring ideological points than saving the country.”

Gates ran the Pentagon from 2006 to 2011 under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. He was the first defense secretary to serve under presidents of both parties.

He was also the only career CIA officer in history to rise from entry-level employee to director of the agency. He was director from 1991 to 1993.

The Kansas native now holds the honorary post of chancellor at the College of William and Mary. A 1965 graduate of the college, he is the first alumnus in the modern era to become chancellor.

The currency war on Iran

NOVANEWS

Women buy groceries in Tehran

A collapse in the rial, greeted with glee by some, is a cause not for celebration but for fear

guardian.co.uk

The continuing currency crisis in Iran, which has seen the rial go into freefall, has been cited, with some celebration in certain quarters, as proving that US-led sanctions are “working” against Tehran. Increasingly shut out from international banking and struggling to sell its oil, Iran has been forced to sell more cheaply while buying raw materials at a higher cash price. This, in turn, has led to currency speculation that the government has done nothing to halt, and to sharp devaluation.

But what does “sanctions are working” actually mean? Some hawks have read it as the possible beginning of the end for Iran’s nuclear programme and the collapse of the clerical regime. For others, including those anxious to avoid conflict over Iran, it has been seized on as a suggestion that the crisis might be resolved through negotiation and non-military pressure.

The reality is that the political, economic and social impact of sanctions can produce very different results from those allegedly desired, more often than not hurting ordinary people. And there is a third scenario, in which sanctions might actually make the confrontation with Iran more dangerous still.

The increasing popularity of economic sanctions, as Britain’s former ambassador to the UN, Sir Jeremy Greenstock, has observed, is due to the perception that no other tool exists “between words and military action if you want to bring pressure upon a government”.

When three academics – Gary Clyde Hufbauer, Jeffrey Scott and Kimberly Ann Elliott – examined the history of sanctions between 1914 and 1990, in Economic Sanctions Reconsidered they determined that out of 115 cases that they looked at, only a third had seen any measure of success. The US political scientist Robert Pape has challenged even this measure, claiming that of the 40, only five can be determined genuine successes for sanctions.

As Pape argued in his essay, Why Economic Sanctions Do Not Work, “The … case that we should expect sanctions to be more effective in the future is also flawed, because it relies on the expectation that economic punishment can overwhelm a state’s commitment to its important policy goals.” Rather, he argues, at times of sanctions, the opposite is often true: “Pervasive nationalism often makes states and societies willing to endure considerable punishment rather than abandon what are seen as the interests of the nation.”

Even in cases where economic sanctions are generally considered to have had a positive impact – bringing about the end of white minority rule in South Africa and Rhodesia – there is disagreement over how decisive sanctions alone were in effecting that change. And if there is a disagreement over the efficacy of sanctions, what is also obvious is that they can come at a high price in terms of the impact on populations, and the risk that, far from undermining the legitimacy of regimes, they can entrench power – in a short term at least – around the regime elites being targeted. For Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, which lived under a sanctions regime from August 1990 until 2003, that meant a sharp increase in childhood mortality for infants under five years old, even as Saddam’s regime used money earned from avoiding sanctions to reward supporters.

There is evidence too that states under sanctions have been able to use the cover provided by them to put the heaviest burden on unpopular groups and minorities.

But one thing should be clear to all from the experience of global recession, ensuing austerity programmes, and recent global disturbances prompted by high grain prices. While it is easy to predict that people may become angry as they feel rapidly poorer, in such times of febrile politics how they will react is far harder to predict.

So to those celebrating Iranian pain, be careful what you wish for in desiring a crisis. It was hyperinflation under a regime of reparations that contributed to the collapse of the Weimar Republic. Few foresaw then what might occur. And few, now, are considering what a sanctions-triggered economic crisis might really mean for Iran and the region.

Protesters March Against War in Istanbul as Tension With Syria Escalates By ROBERT MACKEY

NOVANEWS

A Turkish blogger's photograph of protesters in Istanbul marching against war with Syria on Thursday night.

After Turkey’s Parliament voted to authorize further military action against Syria, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that another Syrian shell had landed in Turkish territory, the newspaper Today’s Zaman reported. Despite assuring reporters that his government “could never be interested in something like starting a war,” as he stood next to Iran’s visiting vice president, Mr. Erdogan added: “The Turkish Republic is a state capable of defending its citizens and borders. Nobody should try and test our determination on this subject.”

Late Thursday, thousands of antiwar protesters marched to Taksim Square in the center of Istanbul. The blogger Serhatcan Yurdam documented the protest using Instagram, and curated a collection of photographs uploaded to Twitter by observers and participants in the march.

Raw footage of the protest posted online by the Turkish news agency DHA showed the protesters chanting “No to War!” and “U.S.A. Get Out of the Middle East!”

Among the slogans written on signs and banners carried by the protesters were: “This War Is Not My War,” “No to Imperialist Intervention in Syria,” “We Will Halt the AK Party’s War Politics,” “We Won’t Be the Soldiers of Imperialism,” and “U.S.A. Take Your Hands Out of the Middle East.”

An overhead view of the protest, posted on a Turkish-language Facebook page for supporters of President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, gave a sense of the scale of the demonstration.

The sound of predawn shelling from Turkey into Syria early Thursday was caught on video by the Turkish news agency Cihan.

The Turkish military action followed the death of five civilians on Wednesday when mortar fire from Syria killed two women and three children in the southern Turkish border town of Akcakale. Video of the chaotic scene moments after the shelling was broadcast on Turkish television.


At funerals for the five victims on Thursday, the newspaper Hurriyet reported that “Akçakale residents expressed their fury at the authorities who came.” Addressing civilian and military officials, one mourner asked, “You are protected by so many men, why are we unprotected?”

Turks wary of greater military action against Syria

NOVANEWS

Many Turks on Thursday welcomed their army’s swift reprisal for deadly Syrian artillery fire into Turkey but their anger was tempered by fears of being dragged into full-blown intervention in a war that could blow back across their borders.

After shelling from Syria’s civil war killed five people in a Turkish border town on Wednesday, parliament authorized the government to take military action in Syria if there was a further spillover of violence.

But while Turks voiced widespread support for a retaliatory round of Turkish shelling that killed five Syrian soldiers, fears of greater military involvement in Syria’s civil war grew.

The Turkish slogan “savasa hayir” (“no to war”) was the top trending item on Turkey’s Twitter on Thursday morning.

A small group of anti-war protesters chanted “We don’t want war!” and “The Syrian people are our brothers!” outside parliament in Ankara. Police fired tear gas to stop them approaching the building.

Opposition parties and civil society groups, expressing misgivings over the Turkish military response, called a further protest in Istanbul for later on Thursday.

An online survey by Hurriyet newspaper showed 60 percent opposition to the memorandum authorizing possible military deployments. Some fear Turkey is being pushed into the conflict by outside forces seeking to use Ankara to fulfill their agenda.

“We are carrying out other countries’ business in the Middle East, it’s not our war, and we should not be fighting the war of others,” said 38-year-old waiter Mustafa Denizer.

“Turkey would drown in Syria if we try to go in there ourselves. We should avoid starting a war without international support,” Denizer said.

Turkish artillery hit targets near Syria’s Tel Abyad border town for a second day on Thursday in response to a mortar fired from Syria that killed a mother, her three children and a female relative in the town of low-rise buildings on Wednesday.

“The Turkish people support such limited action, which has a positive impact psychologically, but they would not support a large-scale operation or war, because there is no legitimacy in Turkish eyes,” said Nihat Ali Ozcan, security analyst at the TEPAV think tank in Ankara.

The government also seemed keen to allay fears of an escalation of the most serious cross-border incident of the 18-month-old uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose bloody crackdown on dissent wrecked relations with Turkey.

“Turkey has no interest in a war with Syria. But Turkey is capable of protecting its borders and will retaliate when necessary,” Ibrahim Kalin, a senior adviser to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, said on his Twitter account.

“Political, diplomatic initiatives will continue.”

After parliament’s approval of possible military action, Deputy Prime Minister Besir Atalay stressed Turkey’s priority was to work in coordination with international institutions and that the authorisation was not a “war memorandum”.

Turkish newspaper headlines struck a defensive tone.

“An instant response to Syria. Damascus went too far,” said the headlines in Yeni Safak newspaper, which is sympathetic to the government. “Serious provocation from Syria,” said Zaman newspaper.

PRESSURE ON GOV’T OVER SYRIAN SPILLOVER

Turkey has the second largest army in NATO but its military activity in recent decades has been focused on fighting Kurdish militants at home and international peacekeeping operations.

Turkey’s artillery strikes on Syrian military targets in the border area eased public pressure on the government that dated back to the shooting down of a Turkish military jet by Syrian air defenses in June.

At the time, Erdogan warned Syria to beware Turkey’s wrath and changed the military’s rules of engagement, authorizing the armed forces to react to any threat from the Syrian side of the border. Until Wednesday, however, Turkey’s response had not gone beyond the occasional scrambling of warplanes.

“They were very slow in taking decisions and didn’t respond. They were criticized domestically and this had a negative impact on people. Hence a response had to be made this time to overcome this psychological pressure,” Ozcan said.

The memorandum in parliament would have the added effect of authorizing possible military action against Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants believed to be active in northern Syria.

“This memorandum will also give the army authority to carry out operations against the PKK in Syrian territory,” Ozcan said.

The PKK, mainly based in the mountains of northern Iraq, has waged a 28-year-old insurgency in which more than 40,000 people have been killed. Its proxy party in Syria has exploited the chaos to exert growing influence in the region bordering Turkey.

“We have to be very careful on our border with Syria. We must remain cool-headed and our reactions must be measured. The radical groups near the border may be trying to provoke Turkey into declaring war,” said Mustafa Kemal Caniklioglu, 31, a restaurant manager in Istanbul.

News from the Jews

NOVANEWS

I’d like to highlight three recent news items found in three different Jewish newspapers that shed some light on the true nature of organized Jewry.

The first comes from The Times of Israel and is titled, “Liberman: West must be prepared to aid Iranians in ‘Persian Spring’” and will put to rest any doubts anyone had about the real agenda behind the “revolutions” taking place in the Middle East. All of them – the “Arab Spring” in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia, the upheaval in Syria, the past attempts to destabilize Iran through the funding of “pro-democracy” activist groups – are Zionist fomented destabilization operations.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Thursday that Israel has a deep interest in supporting those calling for a regime change in Iran and should press the international community to aid dissenters. Liberman made the comment a day after protesters clashed with police in the streets of Tehran over increasing economic hardships and the steep drop in the country’s currency value.

“The Foreign Ministry has long pointed out that we are on the way from the Arab Spring to the Persian Spring. What we are seeing now is just the first buds,” said Liberman in an interview with Army Radio. “As we approach presidential elections in Iran, in June 2013, we will see much more of this.”

Liberman said that the West made a mistake when it didn’t take a more active role in supporting the reformist protesters during the last elections in 2009 and that the international community must be prepared to assist with money and institutions.

When asked by the interviewer whether US President Barack Obama had made a mistake by not fanning the flames enough during the 2009 protests and subsequently perhaps cutting off Iran’s nuclear rush, Liberman said the mistake was not Obama’s but that of all Western nations.

Addressing Israel’s role vis-a-vis the popular protests in Iran, Liberman said, “The best help Israel can offer is not to disrupt things by interfering. I don’t think we have a special status that forces us to lead initiatives, but we should definitely follow matters closely and encourage the UN Security Council, the EU, the world powers and others to take action.”

“I have no doubt the Iranian regime is approaching a critical moment. The only question is what will come first — the fruition of its nuclear program, or the Persian Spring. We must be prepared for both possibilities.”

There you have it folks, the Jewish modus operandi in a nutshell: come on stupid goy, do our dirty work for us! Fight wars for us, intervene and destabilize other countries for us, finance all of these endeavors on your own, and above all do whatever we say and don’t ask questions!

The second comes from The Jewish Daily Forward and is titled, “How Jewish College Uses Federal Funds to Grow”. This article openly documents the innate parasitic and corrupt behavior of organized Jewish interests.

It was the first week of the new semester at Michigan Jewish Institute, a college of more than 2,000 students, nestled in the leafy Detroit suburb of West Bloomfield. But at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, the classrooms were silent and the entrance to the college’s temporary home, an impressive $6 million brick-and-glass synagogue with a vaulted roof that soars 50 feet into the sky, was desolate.

That’s because in less than a decade, MJI has transformed itself from a small campus-based college into a burgeoning online university, thanks in large part tomore than $25 million in federal aid, designated for low-income students, which the not-for-profit school has received over the past five years.

But very little of this money has been spent on men and women taking courses in Michigan or, indeed, in the United States. Instead, the majority of MJI’s students can be found working toward an MJI degree in Judaic studies at yeshivas and seminaries overseas, mostly in Israel.

In a September 13 interview in a classroom at MJI, which is based at a magnificent Chabad synagogue called The Shul, Dov Stein, director of academic administration, said that MJI’s enrollment had grown this year to 3,000 students from only 300 students in 2004. In a subsequent email, Stein revised the figure down to just over 2,000 students.

As MJI has expanded rapidly, it has drawn increasingly on the Federal Pell Grant Program, the government’s largest education aid program targeting low-income students, which funnels public funds directly to the school. At the same time,MJI’s net income has soared. According to the institute’s most recent available tax records, between 2006 and 2010 inclusive, MJI’s net income increased to $850,000 from $89,000 — a staggering 860% five-year jump. The school ended 2010 with almost $3 million in assets. So far this calendar year, the school has received $8.7 million in federal aid.

But its academic record is poor. As the number of students has risen, performance on national proficiency exams has plummeted. Student retention has suffered, too.

I’m starting to wonder if there is any legitimate, honestly run Jewish organization or enterprise…

Finally, the third article comes from The Jewish Telegraph Agency and is titled, “In Ukraine, new funds for survivors bring high – some say unrealistic – expectations”.

On a daily basis, one can visit any Jewish newspaper website or media outlet and read at least two or three different articles relating to the fraudulent “Holocaust” of Europe’s Jews in WWII at the hands of Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany. For organized Jewry, the “Holocaust” is not only a religion, but an entire industry, or racket to be more precise, that has been used to serve multiple agendas. Lobbying organizations, “social service agencies”, “survivor” groups, and Jewish religious, political, and social leaders use the “Holocaust” PSYOP to defraud European governments, control the historical narrative, justify the very existence of Israel, garner sympathy from the gullible public that falls for this “Holocaust” propaganda and many other purposes.

Virtually every single aspect of the mainstream “Holocaust” narrative has been thoroughly debunked. In fact, the official “Holocaust” narrative is the exact opposite of what really happened in WWII: it was the Germans, Japanese, and other Eastern European peoples who were the real holocaust victims. International Jewry and the countries they controlled – the Soviet Union, the United States, and the United Kingdom, largely – were the perpetrators of the most horrificand cowardly war crimes and holocausts of WWII.

Despite these facts, organized Jewish interests continue to propagate their ludicrous Holohoax fable, milking corrupt and traitorous European governments for funds to support Jewish “Holocaust survivors”, as this article informs us:

In her dilapidated apartment, Larisa Rakovskaya examines a stack of unpaid heating bills. Sick and alone, the 86-year-old Holocaust survivor and widow is preparing for another encounter with the cold, her “worst and only fear.”

Rakovskaya says her hope of staying warm this winter lies with a one-time payment of approximately $3,200 that she may receive from Germany via the Claims Conference following Berlin’s recent decision to include victims of Nazi persecution in the former Soviet Union as beneficiaries of the so-called Hardship Fund. Some 80,000 survivors across the former Soviet Union are expected to qualify for the payouts, half of them in Ukraine, where a crumbling welfare system often leaves the old and disabled to live and die in penury.

Rakovskaya says that once she uses the Hardship Fund payment to pay off the few hundred dollars of debt she owes utilities, she wants to visit Israel for the first time.

“I don’t want to renovate, and I don’t need a boiler. My last wish is to see Jerusalem,” she tells JTA.

Marina, her social worker from the American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, asks Rakovskaya to “be realistic” and use the money for day-to-day living.

The Claims Conference, which negotiated the expansion of the Hardship Fund with Germany, says the money will have “an enormous impact.” The application process starts in November, and eligible claimants are expected to be approved as quickly as eight weeks afterward, according to Claims Conference spokeswoman Hillary Kessler-Godin. Applications will be processed throughout most of 2013.

JDC, which funds Jewish welfare operations in the former Soviet Union known as Heseds, called the new money a “welcome addition” but cautioned that survivors, as well as other Jews in the region, still need ongoing assistance.

Rakovskaya lives on a $111 monthly government pension in a one-bedroom apartment with her small dog, Chunya. Old newspapers absorb humidity from the broken floor; the brown walls are crumbling. With no hot water, she heats water over an electric stove and then washes over a rusty sink. She has managed to get food and medicine and keep her home heated thanks to support from her local Hesed.

Established in the 1990s, Hesed provides relief, medical services and food to approximately 170,000 Jews in former Soviet countries. JDC’s 2012 budget for welfare and social services in the former Soviet Union comes to $113.5 million. Some of the money comes from the Claims Conference, which funds Hesed programs directed at Holocaust survivors. In 2011, those funds reached approximately $75 million.

Jewish Man opens fire in Eilat hotel; 1 dead

NOVANEWS

Former American employee of Leonardo Club Hotel in southern resort city opens fire in lobby, killing one man. Police forces storm premises, kill gunman, who was fired from hotel the day before

ynet

A man suffered fatal gunshot injuries Friday after a US national opened fire inside the lobby of Leonardo Club Hotel in Eilat. The gunman, who was fired from his job on Thursday, is believed to have arrived at the hotel to avenge his dismissal, according to the police. 

The victim has been identified as 33-year-old Armando Abed, from Mi’ilya, a local council in the western Galilee; who was employed at the hotel as a sous-chef. The identity of the shooter has yet to be released.

The gunman was identified only as a 23-year-old Jewish man from New York City, who arrived in Israel as part of the “Oranim” Israeli-American job exchange project. The police confirmed that the gunman was fired from his job on Thursday.

“This was a criminal act,” the police said. “The man was fired yesterday. He shot at cops and put everyone in danger, which is why the counterterrorism unit returned fire.”

The police stressed that the circumstances surrounding the incident are criminal, and that no national security violations were at play.

Aside from the two casualties, several others have suffered shock and were taken to the Yoseftal Medical Center in the southern resort city.

Large police forces and emergency services arrived at the scene as soon as the incident was reported to the police emergency line.

Available details suggest that the shooter had an altercation with another hotel employee. A hotel security guard tried to intervene, at which point the man grabbed his weapon and opened fire.

The Police Counterterrorism Unit was given command of the situation and once it was made clear that the shooter had barricaded himself in the hotel, special forces stormed the premises. The shooter was killed during the operation.

Initial reports suggesting he had taken hostages were quickly proven false.

Natan Sharansky, chairman of the Jewish Agency, has ordered the formation of a commission of inquiry to investigate the shooter’s admission process into its Oranim program.

According to the project’s website, the program is affiliated with “Masa Israel Journey” – a joint project of the government, the Jewish Agency, the Jewish Federations of North America and the United Israel Appeal (Keren Hayesod).

Hotel guests were instructed to stay inside their rooms while the event was in progress, for their own safety.

Alon Raz, a guest at the hotel, told Ynet Radio that “As far as we know, the shooter was a man who was fired from the hotel.

“Hotel staff told us that he walked into the dining room and started shooting… Everyone began screaming and running outside and up to the room,” he recounted.

The police are questioning witnesses.

Eilat Police Spokesman Chief Inspector Lior Ben-Simon told Ynet that, “Eilat’s security forces are on high alert because of the holiday. The response time to the incident was quick.”

Algerian ‘state terrorism’ and atrocities in northern Mali
Jeremy H. Keenan http://www.pambazuka.org/en/category/features/84503
With the MNLA marginalized, the Islamists quickly began imposing shari’a law in Azawad. In Gao, a young man died after having his hand amputated for alleged theft; in Aguelhok, a couple were stoned to death for alleged adultery; in Timbuktu, ancient Sufi tombs, UNESCO world heritage sites, were destroyed. Throughout the region, music, smoking, alcohol, TV, football, traditional forms of dress and lifestyle were all banned as Islamists dished out beatings, amputations and executions with a vengeance. By August, nearly half a million people had fled or been displaced.In spite of concern being expressed at the apparent emergence of ‘Africa’s Afghanistan’ in the heart of the Sahara, no one has been prepared to address the key issue behind what is really going on in northern Mali.
This is that the Islamist ‘terrorist’ groups that have taken over control of the region are not only the creations of Algeria’s secret police, the Département du Renseignement et de la Sécurité (DRS), but they are being supplied, supported and orchestrated by the DRS.In my two volumes on terrorism and the global war on terror (GWOT) in the Sahara-Sahel, The Dark Sahara (Pluto, 2009) and The Dying Sahara (Pluto 2012, in press), I describe and give detailed evidence of how Algeria’s DRS has colluded with western military intelligence in fabricating ‘false-flag’ terrorism to justify the West’s GWOT in Africa. The two volumes detail how AQIM was created by the DRS; how the DRS has been behind almost all of the more than 60 kidnaps of western hostages in the region since 2003 and how it has worked with the US, UK and French intelligence services in promoting the GWOT, state terrorism and co-called counter-terrorism policies.
What we have seen unfold in Mali during 2012 is merely the latest manifestation of the way in which the DRS has used the ‘terrorists’ that it has created to further the interests of Algeria’s ‘mafiosi’ state. Corroboration of my long-standing analysis of the Algerian regime’s use of terrorism (‘state terrorism’) in helping to further and justify the west’s GWOT in North Africa and beyond was provided by John Schindler on July 10 (2012). In an article in The National Interest entitled ‘The Ugly truth about Algeria’, Schindler, a former high-ranking US intelligence officer and long-standing member of the US National Security Council (NSC) and currently Professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College, ‘blew the whistle’ on Algeria when he described how:‘the GIA (Armed Islamic Group) [of the 1990s] was the creation of the DRS; using proven Soviet methods of penetration and provocation, the agency assembled it to discredit the extremists.
Much of GIA’s leadership consisted of DRS agents, who drove the group into the dead end of mass murder, a ruthless tactic that thoroughly discredited GIA Islamists among nearly all Algerians. Most of its major operations were the handiwork of the DRS, including the 1995 wave of bombings in France. Some of the most notorious massacres of civilians were perpetrated by military special units masquerading as mujahidin, or by GIA squads under DRS control.’
The DRS’s ‘state terrorism’ of the 1990s has changed little during this millennium. In the same way as Schindler describes how the DRS assembled the GIA in the 1990s, so, in this century, the DRS, in collusion with US, British, French and other NATO intelligence agencies, as well as the EU Commission (as documented in my two volumes: ‘The Dark Sahara’ and ‘The Dying Sahara’), has created AQIM, or what I have referred to as ‘Al Qaeda in the West for the West’.This diabolical strategy, straight from the tradecraft manual of the KGB (who, incidentally trained Mohamed Mediène, the current DRS boss, and other top DRS Generals), was reactivated in 2003, when a DRS agent, Saifi Lamari (known as El Para), supported by DRS agent Abdelhamid Abou Zaïd, at the head of some 60 genuine members of the Groupe Salafiste pour le Predication et le Combat (GSPC), the successor to the GIA, in collusion with US military intelligence, took 32 European tourists hostage in the Algerian Sahara. This operation, which received world headlines and was the subject of my book ‘The Dark Sahara’, was used by the US and other western countries to justify the launch of a new or ‘second front’ in the GWOT into the Sahara and Africa.In September 2006, the nondescript GSPC, with the help of the DRS and US intelligence agencies,internationalised itself by adopting the Al Qaeda brand and renaming itself as AQIM. AQIM’s three emirs (leaders) in the Sahara, Abdelhamid Abou Zaïd, Yahia Djouadi and Mokhtar ben Mokhtar (they have many aliases), were and still are DRS agents. 
The DRS’s strategy to remove this threat was to use its control of AQIM to weaken and then destroy the credibility and political effectiveness of the MNLA. Although denied by the Algerian government, it sent some 200 Special Forces into Azawad on December 20, stationing them at Tessalit, Aguelhok and Kidal (and possibly elsewhere). Their purpose appears to have been to:(1) protect AQIM which had moved from its training base(s) in southern Algeria into the Tigharghar mountains of northern Mali around 2008. Most of AQIM’s subsequent terrorism, especially hostage-taking, had been conducted from bases in northern Mali. The MNLA, however, was threatening to attack AQIM and drive its estimated 300 members out of the country;(2) assess the strengths and intentions of the MNLA; (3) help establish two ‘new’ salafist-jihadist terrorist groups Ansar al-Din and MUJAO, alleged ‘offshoots’ of AQIM, in the region. Ansar al-Din and MUJAO, which had not been heard of before, first appeared on local websites on December 10 and 15 respectively. The leaders of both groups were closely associated with the DRS. Iyad ag Ghaly first became acquainted with the DRS when he worked for an Algerian enterprise in Tamanrasset (Algeria) in the 1980s. He had subsequently been used and paid by the DRS to help manage their resolution of EL Para’s 2003 hostage-taking. He had been used again by the Algerians and the US in 2006 to engineer the short-lived May 23 Kidal rebellion and to then undertake two fabricated terrorist actions in northern Mali in September and October 2006
