Border Guard officers of Ethiopian descent report rising number of racially motivated verbal attacks from Hebron_youths; Druze officers also suffer racist remarks
Not only do they serve long and tiring hours in the reserve forces, and not only are they forced to deal with violent clashes with settlers, but now, Border Guard officers of Ethiopian descent are also faced with rising racism.
“Niggers don’t expel Jews! This isn’t what we brought you to Israel_for!” are just some of the degrading slurs Border Guard officers reported hearing from masked settlers.
During the violent clashes between Israeli forces and settlers in Hebron_on Tuesday “a bunch of veiled people started yelling at us: Who are you to expel us from our home? An Ethiopian does not expel a Jew! A nigger does not expel a Jew!” one Border Guard officer of Ethiopian descent recounted.
“I just didn’t know what to do with myself,” he said.
UPDATE: According to this article Anwar al-Awlaki is alive and well.
At least 30 suspected al-Qaeda militants have been killed by an air strike in a remote mountainous area of Yemen, security officials say.
An unnamed official told reporters the strike took place as dozens of militants gathered in Shabwa province, east of the capital, Sanaa.
Two senior al-Qaeda commanders in the Arabian peninsula could be among the dead, he said.
Al-Qaeda has carried out frequent attacks in Yemen in recent months.
The Saudi government has recently expressed its concern about the resurgence of the movement in the region.
According to the BBC, a Yemeni official said that Anwar al-Awlaki was amongst the dead. Inna lillahi wa inna ilayhi rajioon.
Update: Apparently other news agencies are reporting the same thing. Most likely the same one source.
Reuters news agency cited a security official saying that a radical Muslim preacher linked to the US army psychiatrist charged over the fatal shooting of 13 people at a US army base was suspected to be among those killed.
Yemen-based al-Qaeda sympathiser Anwar al-Awlaki, who was released from a Yemeni prison last year, and Maj Nidal Hasan had exchanged e-mails before the shooting at Fort Hood last month, US officials say.
Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has rejected the recommendation of municipal professionals and will not include the establishment of a well-baby clinic in the Silwan neighborhood in the coming year’s budget. The proposed clinic would have served some 100,000 Arabic-speaking residents. On the other hand, the 7,000 residents of the Old City’s Jewish Quarter will receive a well-baby clinic in 2010.
So 7,000 Jewish citizens can get healthcare for their babies, while 100,000 Palestinians can’t.
I guess Steve Jobs is a an anti-Semite.
Update: Oh snap! Steve Jobs’ father is Abdulfattah Jandali from Syria! LOL!
Props to the UK government for doing this. Boycotting these products will be boycotting terrorists.
Britain has acted to increase pressure on Israel over its West Bank settlements by advising UK supermarkets on how to distinguish between foods from the settlements and Palestinian-manufactured goods.
The government’s move falls short of a legal requirement but is bound to increase the prospects of a consumer boycott of products from those territories. Israeli officials and settler leaders were tonight highly critical of the decision.
Until now, food has been simply labelled “Produce of the West Bank”, but the new, voluntary guidance issued by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), says labels could give more precise information, like “Israeli settlement produce” or “Palestinian produce”.

Is the Egyptian government on crack or something?
Seems Muslims are collateral damage on all sides of the “war on terror”. Really sad. May Allah protect the innocent.
Few would deny that Muslims too are victims of Islamist terror. But a new study by the Combating Terrorism Center in the US has shown that an overwhelming majority of al-Qaida victims are, in fact, co-religionists.
In the battle against unbelievers, can one also kill Muslims? Even the terror network al-Qaida is troubled by this question.

What goes around comes around. While the “collateral damage” continues to climb in Iraq and Afghanistan, the American people are losing their health as well. According to this study 45,000 Americans die annually due to the simple fact that they don’t have health insurance. That’s about 1/3 to the death toll of Iraq. Now AETNA, a major health insurance provider wants to cut over 600,000 Americans from their health insruance. Why? In order to make a profit.
Health insurance giant Aetna is planning to force up to 650,000 clients to drop their coverage next year as it seeks to raise additional revenue to meet profit expectations.
In a third-quarter earnings conference call in late October, officials at Aetna announced that in an effort to improve on a less-than-anticipated profit margin in 2009, they would be raising prices on their consumers in 2010. The insurance giant predicted that the company would subsequently lose between 300,000 and 350,000 members next year from its national account as well as another 300,000 from smaller group accounts
Looks like there is another terrorist entity right here in America.
Kicking footballs is a threat to the national security of Israel.
A friendly game between an Arab soccer team and a Palestinian team was supposed to inaugurate the new stadium being built in the eastern part of Al-Bireh, near Ramallah, at the end of the year. “Supposed to” because the Civil Administration, an arm of the Defense Ministry, has ordered that the work be halted and is threatening demolition.
FIFA, the international soccer federation, financed the stadium as part of a larger program to promote Palestinian soccer. The stadium covers 11 dunams (2.75 acres) and will hold 8,000 seats. An Israeli contractor, in partnership with a Dutch company and a Palestinian subcontractor, constructed the field.
n October 2008, when the field was ready, FIFA president Joseph Blatter and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad laid the cornerstone for the stadium. The governments of France and Germany are paying for the construction of stands. The outer wall, the lighting and the scoreboard are being financed by the Al-Bireh municipality, which owns the land and within whose jurisdiction the stadium is located.
