THE WATCHMAN at the gates is a powerful image. But of course the defense of Jerusalem cannot begin at the gates. And guarding Jerusalem is not simply a matter of physical strength. It requires spiritual commitment and wisdom as well. Indeed, defenders of Zion require a greater mix of physical and spiritual strength than any defenders of any spot on earth. Both our recent and ancient history as a people is one continuous testament to this truth. And it is this aspect of Jerusalem - the eternal and temporal front line of the Jewish people - that I wish to discuss with you.Obama Says: U.S. Could Be Seen as a Muslim Country, Too!
In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” He sought to downplay the expectations of the speech, but he said he hoped the address would raise awareness about Muslims. “Now, I think it’s very important to understand that one speech is not going to solve all the problems in the Middle East,” Mr. Obama said. “And so I think expectations should be somewhat modest.”Obama is, indeed, really bowing to the Saudis as he visits the Middle East this week
First, he is bypassing Israel. Visiting the Middle East and not going to Israel would be like touring North America and omitting a stop in the United States. It only makes sense if you interpret it as a deliberate slap in the face of Jerusalem and a statement to the Arab world that America's pro-Israeli policy is changing.Obama Talks of Being 'Honest' With Israel
But as he goes to Saudi Arabia, the United States State Department, headed by Mrs. Hillary Clinton, has announced that it has accepted the ground rules for media coverage of the Obama visit to the royal family and its domain. Reporters will only be allowed to cover the actual meetings between the Saudis and Obama and will not be permitted to visit the rest of the country or report on anything else they see during the trip. Those reporters who violate these terms are subject to arrest and imprisonment by the Saudi government!!
He got turnspeak, doublespeak AND triplespoke, this MFer.
President Obama indicated on Monday that he would be more willing to criticize Israel than previous administrations have been, and he reiterated his call for a freeze of Israeli settlements. “Part of being a good friend is being honest,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NPR News. “And I think there have been times where we are not as honest as we should be about the fact that the current direction, the current trajectory, in the region is profoundly negative, not only for Israeli interests but also U.S. interests.Israel takes down key roadblock in West Bank

The Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) plans to launch "Saudi Arabia's Educational Convoy" as part of the humanitarian campaign initiated by the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques to provide relief to Palestinians in Gaza. The planned convoy will provide 'integrated school bags' for students in the Gaza Strip.INDIA: Concern at reports of Pakistan piling up nuclear weapons
The OIC will organize the campaign in cooperation with the Committee of Private Schools at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) in Jeddah and bookstores. The campaign will seek to cater to the educational needs of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, as well as rehabilitate schools damaged by the brutal Israeli aggression on Gaza.
Minister of State for Defence M.M. Pallam Raju, who assumed charge of the office here for the second time, said: “We are concerned because Pakistan is crossing minimum deterrent threshold. We hope international pressure will be exerted on Pakistan to make sure that they stick to minimum deterrent levels.”MEANTIME...:

Iran: Larijani urges OIC counterparts to prevent change of al-Qods status
Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani on Monday called on speakers of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member states to take action against the insulting move by the Zionist regime to change the historical and religious status of al-Quds.Red Cross "repatriates" 260 Iranian rebels from Iraq
Larijani, who is the head of the OIC Parliamentary Union Council, made the call in a letter to OIC speakers after receiving a report from Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) speaker on moves by the Zionist regime to change historical and religious status of al-Qods.
"I deplore the Zionist regime for undertaking a number of serious operations to change the historical and religious image of Qods, including the destruction of walls and removal of gates, ruining the surrounding areas and holy sites. More painful is that about 200,000 oppressed Palestinian citizens residing in areas near the holy sites have been made homeless and the properties of the defenseless people have been confiscated," said Larijani in the message.

The center collects intelligence from state and federal agencies to combat terrorism and criminal activity.The report said some militia members subscribe to militant anti-abortion or anti-illegal immigration movements.

According to a report released this morning by Obama’s Council of Economic Advisers, the president’s plan to revamp the health-care system likely would cut the rate of annual growth in costs by 1.5 percentage points, increasing the gross domestic product by more than 2 percent in 2020 above what it would be if no changes were made.

They say history repeats itself. If you are like me and have lived two lives, you have a good chance of seeing the re-enactment with your own eyes. The current takeover of General Motors by the U.S. government and United Auto Workers makes me think back to Romania's catastrophic mismanagement of the car factories it built jointly with the French companies Renault and Citroen. I was Romania's car czar.Nationalizing General Motors
When the Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu decided in the mid-1960s that he wanted to have a car industry, he chose me to start the project rolling. In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king. I knew nothing about manufacturing cars, but neither did anyone else among Ceausescu's top men. However, my father had spent most of his life running the service department of the General Motors affiliate in Bucharest.
My job at the time was as head of the Romanian industrial espionage program. Ceausescu tasked me to mediate the purchase of a minimum, basic license for a small car from a major Western manufacturer, and then to steal everything else needed to produce the car.

Maryland State lawmakers push for federal energy bill

"We need federal legislation. We don't want to wait state after state after state," said Pinsky (D-Dist. 22) of University Park.

Agency staff is working "closely" on due diligence with four nuclear developers, but none of the 10 active nuclear loan applicants has been eliminated, Chu told the Reuters Global Energy Summit in Washington.

Liberty County Sheriff’s officials are expected to meet with the FAA on Tuesday to discuss what a Continental Express pilot reported as a “missile or rocket” flying near his airplane. A pilot reported to the Federal Aviation Administration that at about 8:15 p.m. Friday, an object passed within 150 feet beneath the aircraft, sheriff’s officials said. The aircraft was near the southern edge of the county, flying at about 13,000 feet, officials said. “The pilot, from what we understand, was former military. He was able to get the coordinates down real quick,” said Cpl. Hugh Bishop with the Liberty County Sheriff’s Department. Sheriff’s deputies searched Friday night for signs of evidence where a missile might have been launched or landed. “We couldn’t find anything,” Bishop said.A Who's Who of those in the pay of Vladimir Putin

Ancient Jerusalem Stone Is Returned to Israel
An ancient Jerusalem stone, believed to date back to the city’s rule under the Muslim Umayyad dynasty some 1,200 years ago, was returned to Israel by a tourist from New York who stole it 12 years ago. The 21-kilogram stone, a fragment of a marble column, was probably part of the official palace complex of the Umayyad Caliphs, the Muslim rulers who built the Dome of the Rock and the Al-Aksa Mosque during their rule from 660 to 750. The stone was returned in a wooden crate. The unidentified person said he regretted the theft and decided to send it back to Israel, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority.Hundreds evacuated after volcano erupts in E Indonesia
