using that empty 50 pound flour sack?
rob, you changed the subject. How about addressing black on black murders and how to stop it and how to get the guns out of the hands of thugs.
The idiot wouldn't address it (he never does address the subject of a post) but maybe you can solve this problem.
point rebuttal. They never do but they will change the subject and insult. It's what loons do.
Read the response he received…
Hi, As an Arab student, who pays 400 shekels at the start of each year, I would like to ask you: ?“
"Why does the Student Association hold its ‘Student Day’ on the day Jerusalem was conquered?"
"Why should the Student Association ignore the Arab students, who constitute a sizable percentage of the students of Hebrew University?"
"Why should that Association indirectly prevent them – knowing they cannot celebrate on that date – from taking part in the largest, most heavily funded event of the school year, an event that should be intended for all students, and one which every student should be able to attend without hesitation…?
Here is the response he received from a member of the Student Association: (and I was ultimately able to find out who that wonderful person is – Itai Haetzni. Look for him on Facebook and compliment him.
Ya Sahbi! [Arabic for “Dear buddy] Student Day is celebrated precisely on the anniversary of Jerusalem’s liberation from Moslem conquest very intentionally!
And if there is anyone who has to rejoice, it is you and your friends, the University’s Arab students, and I shall explain briefly why:
Had you not been liberated from the yoke of the Jordanian conquest, you, in all likelihood would have been downtrodden, impoverished, uneducated, and perhaps would have found yourself decapitated as well –Al Qaeda and ISIS-style.
You don’t have to like it, but listen sweetheart: Your life under Israel’s “occupation” is better than it would be under any other regime in the Middle East. In Syria, you’d be slaughtered in battle, through bombings or poison gas. In Lebanon, you’d be drafted into Hezbollah and killed in its service or oppressed/killed in a civil war. In Iraq, your head would be chopped off. In Yemen, you’d be shot in the street. In Egypt, you’d be violently liquidated by the police, the Salafists or the Moslem Brotherhood. Apparently, even if you lived in Jordan (you certainly wouldn’t want to live in any other country I mentioned) you’d be dirt poor and uneducated. Perhaps you’d be living in the Cairo cemetery in Egypt, in a mud hut in Northern Jordan, or in a destroyed refugee camp outside Damascus.
Your dignity would be crushed, your rights trampled, yet – without a doubt – you would be “independent” and “not occupied”. How lucky for you! After all, what does it matter if someone chops off your head, humiliates your wife, steals your money, or forces you to live a certain way? The main thing is that you are living under an “independent-Arab” regime, and not – G-d forbid – under the rule of those murderous Jews… So, the Day of Jerusalem’s Liberation is, more than anything else, your holiday, pal.
Thanks to “Calamity Day” [the Israeli Arab name for Israel Independence Day] and “Defeat Day” [the Israeli Arab name for Jerusalem Day] you can read and write, use the Internet and buy what you want just like in any other Western country. You can express your opinion in public, without fear of being arrested or killed. You can choose to be religious or irreligious, as you wish. You can study in university what you want, at the State of Israel’s expense, and enjoy Israeli Social Security; running water; reliable electricity and a feeling of genuine personal security. You needn’t fear that a government clerk will break into your house and demand a bribe, or rape your wife. Even if you commit a crime, no one’s going to cut off your hand, stone you or hang you.
This is your holiday, habibi, and the University celebrates Student Day especially for you. Sure, we Jews are celebrating the return to our historic homeland, a national celebration without a doubt. But you? You’re celebrating your own private celebration simultaneous to the general celebration. You’ve won a better life for yourself, when the alternative was to drown in the morass of thick blood that all the other countries of the Middle East are drowning in. Mazel tov, man!
Only whites can be accused of a hate crime.
Poor reading comprehension skills? The article talked about how the Arctic is adding ice not losing it and how is posting a scientific article cherry picking?
This article is from an agency you use to quote all the time but now that it is publishing facts you don't like you trash it.
You can't refute real facts so you make up your own "facts" and then deny you ever did. It's called lying but then you worship liars like TWBotW, The Liar in Chief and Pocahontas. The nastier the scoundrel the more loons love them.
Loons will never address black on black violence nor will you ever hear a loon give a solution to getting guns out of the thugs' hands.
Are The Polar Ice Caps Melting? New NASA Study Shows Mass Gains Are Bigger Than The Losses
By Clark Mindock on November 02 2015 11:09 AM EST
There may be some good news for anyone living in coastal zones threatened by rising sea levels. The amount of snow accumulating in parts of Antarctica appears to be larger than the glacial melt that has long been the source of concern for climate change scientists, according to a new study conducted by NASA.
The study analyzed satellite data that measured small changes in height of the surface of the ice and snow on the continent. While it appears that ice mass is growing at the moment, scientists note that, within a few decades, that trend could be reversed. The new analysis of data shows that about 112 billion tons of ice was added to the Arctic ice sheet during the ‘90s, and that rate slowed to 82 billion from 2003 to 2008.
The new conclusions conflict with results from other large estimates, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 2013 report that said the continent was losing ice. The IPCC is a United Nations-organized group of scientists from around the world who study the changing climate.
“We’re essentially in agreement with other studies that show an increase in ice discharge in the Antarctic Peninsula and the Thwaites and Pine Island region of West Antarctica,” Jay Zwally, a glaciologist with NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland and lead author of the study, said. “Our main disagreement is for East Antarctica and the interior of West Antarctica. There, we see an ice gain that exceeds the losses in the other areas.” Zwally added that his team “measured small height changes over large areas, as well as the large changes observed over smaller areas.”
The most recent IPCC report in 2013 indicated that the global sea level rise would be much more drastic than previously anticipated. The total rise in sea level was estimated to be between 26 and 82 centimeters. The report indicated that there was a 90 percent likelihood that humans are contributing to conditions that result in that rise.
Sea level rise appears to be quickening in pace, that report showed. And an estimated 0.27 millimeters per year was attributable to Antarctica. The new report, then, poses some difficulties.
“The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” Zwally said. “But this is also bad news. If the 0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica in the IPCC report is not really coming from Antarctica, there must be some other contribution to sea level rise that is not accounted for. ”
ace, the loons want to take away the second amendment from law abiding citizens but allow the thugs and gangs to keep their illegal weapons. They will deny this but they have no plan to disarm the gangs.
All of this anti-gun rhetoric is nothing more than liberal grandstanding. When they address black on black crime and take it seriously, I might, just might take the loons seriously.
PC is a product of liberals.
Do a search on "Hillary Supporters Endorse SHARIA LAW in AMERICA! " and see the YouTube video.
Stunning! I think I spotted the idiot in this video.
Going bankrupt through over spending doesn't bother socialist loons.
Margaret Thatcher was right, "The problem with socialism is you run out of other people's money."
Muslims slaughtering innocents all over the world offends me but that doesn’t seem to stop them. I say who cares if our culture offends them. If it is so offensive to them don’t come here. Go to some other Islamic schite hole of a country where they can feel right at home. A country where they can beat their wives and daughters, have honor killings and stone women and it won’t offend anybody.
German Schools Abolish Christian Festival to Avoid Offending Muslim Migrants
St. Martin's Day celebration amended to "facilitate the integration" of asylum seekers
by Paul Joseph Watson | November 2, 2015
Primary schools and kindergartens in Germany are abolishing a Christian celebration and changing it into a generic “festival of lights” so as not to offend the hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants pouring into the country.
According to a translated report out of the Epoch Times, schools are re-naming the Christian-themed St. Martin’s Day, an annual celebration that takes place in numerous European countries on November 11.
Several daycare centers in Düsseldorf have abolished the festival altogether out of “consideration for the refugees,” a decision that has prompted fierce criticism from head teachers at other schools in the region.
Others have re-named the event the “Festival of Lights” in order to “facilitate the integration” of the Muslim migrants, said Nanette Weidelt, head of the Düsseldorf Don Bosco-Montessori School.
Leftist politicians have been attempting to amend the celebration for a number of years, with Rüdiger Sagel insisting the change was a necessary response to the “high proportion of Muslim children in the day care centers.”
“You should not impose the Christian tradition,” Sagel asserted.
However, some see the change as yet another example of how Germans are being forced to integrate with Muslim culture and not the other way around as it should be.
“These migrants are coming to our countries from failed, devastated cultures. When and why was it decided that we have to mute and censor our traditions and mores for theirs — a failed society that suffocates and destroys?” writes Pamela Geller. “They are running from devastation and failure; why adopt that?”
As we have exhaustively documented, this is not the first example of European nations sacrificing aspects of their own culture in order to please the wave of incoming “refugees”.
A Protestant church in Oberhausen, Germany recently announced that it would remove Christian crosses, altars and pulpits in order to accommodate 50 Muslim migrants who were invited to stay in the building.
Back in September, a school in Bavaria also sent a letter to parents asking them to ensure girls didn’t wear shorts or mini-skirts so as to prevent “attacks” from Muslims housed in a nearby gym who might be offended by such attire.
As we reported last month, the world’s first lesbian Bishop Eva Brunne also suggested removing Christian crosses and symbols from a church in Stockholm in order to make the building “more inviting” for Muslims.
Last week, we also highlighted how German security experts are warning that the middle class in Germany is becoming “radicalized” in response to the migrant influx and that domestic unrest may occur as a result.
Antarctica is actually gaining ice, says NASA. Is global warming over?
Not quite, scientists say. But new study results show the fallibility of current climate change measuring tools and challenges current theories about the causes of sea level rise.
By Lonnie Shekhtman, Staff November 1, 2015
A new NASA study found that Antarctica has been adding more ice than it's been losing, challenging other research, including that of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, that concludes that Earth’s southern continent is losing land ice overall.
In a paper published in the Journal of Glaciology on Friday, researchers from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, the University of Maryland in College Park, and the engineering firm Sigma Space Corporation offer a new analysis of satellite data that show a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001 in the Antarctic ice sheet.
That gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
That kind of warm and fuzzy story always brings a tear to my eye.
Richard, why do you answer this idiot? No matter what you say or what proofs you give, you know he will lie his way out of it.
He's a MORON!
you. You worship liars.
Hillary Clinton Was Warned Not to Blame Benghazi on Youtube Video
by Patrick Howley31 Oct 20151,662
Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s embassy in Tripoli, Libya, warned State Department officials in Washington, D.C., not to blame the Youtube video, Innocence of Muslims, for the Benghazi terrorist attack.
The House Benghazi Committee released a new email Saturday that a Tripoli embassy official sent to Clinton’s underlings in Washington, D.C., on September 14, 2012, two days before Susan Rice appeared on Sunday talk shows to use the administration’s “video” talking point.
“Colleagues, I mentioned to [redacted] this morning, and want to share with all of you, our view at Embassy Tripoli that we must be cautious in our local messaging with regard to the inflammatory film trailer, adapting it to Libyan conditions,” the official wrote.
The official added:
Our monitoring of the Libyan media and conversations with Libyans suggest that the films [sic] not as explosive of an issue here as it appears to be in other countries in the region. The overwhelming majority of the FB comments and tweets we’ve received from Libyans since the Ambassador’s death have expressed deep sympathy, sorrow, and regret. They have expressed anger at the attackers, and emphasized that this attack does not represent Libyans or Islam. Relatively few have even mentioned the inflammatory video. So if we post messaging about the video specifically, we may draw unwanted attention to it.
“And it is becoming increasingly clear that the series of events in Benghazi was much more terrorist attack than a protest which escalated into violence,” the official continued. “It is our opinion that in our messaging, we want to distinguish, not conflate, the events in other countries with this well-planned attack by militant extremists. I have discussed this with [redacted] and he shares PAS’s view.”
According to a statement by Matt Wolking, press secretary of the House Select Committee on Benghazi:
This email shows that State Department staff privately raised serious concerns about conflating the terrorist attacks in Benghazi with a video on the Internet, even as the Secretary of State and other Obama administration officials continued to do so publicly. Furthermore, according to the former head of the CIA, intelligence “analysts never said the video was a factor in the Benghazi attacks.” So while Secretary Clinton may use the “fog of war” as a convenient excuse for why she said one thing in private and something else in public, the reality is that’s just another smokescreen.
Lying comes easier to him than to TWBotW. and that's saying a lot.
Dems decry Obama decision to deploy special ops to Syria
By DEB RIECHMANN
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional Democrats on Friday criticized President Barack Obama's decision to dispatch a small band of U.S. special operations forces to northern Syria to help local fighters battle the Islamic State, saying they feared "mission creep" from a president who promised to end American involvement in two wars.
Democrats complained the move was being made without a clear U.S. strategy in Syria, torn asunder by years of civil war. They also said the move makes it essential that Congress debate and vote on a new authorization for the use of military force. Obama is relying on war powers given to President George W. Bush after 9/11.
Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said sending American special forces into Syria represents a major shift in policy that puts the United States on a "potentially dangerous downward slope into a civil war with no end in sight."
Murphy and other Democrats said the deployment, while small, risks drawing U.S. forces into combat missions and will inevitably increase pressure for the United States to enter the war against Syria President Bashar Assad.
They say it also runs counter to Obama's address to the nation on Sept. 10, 2013, when he said: "I will not put American boots on the ground in Syria. I will not pursue an open-ended action like Iraq or Afghanistan."
White House press secretary Josh Earnest insisted the fewer than 50 troops will not be on a "combat mission." He said the U.S. special operations forces would train, advise and assist local forces as part of the stepped-up U.S. effort against IS.
Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, called the deployment a "strategic mistake."
It "marks a major shift in U.S. policy - a shift that is occurring without congressional debate, is unlikely to succeed in achieving our objective of defeating IS and instead threatens to embroil the United States in Syria's civil war," Schatz said.
Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., expressed his opposition in a letter to Obama. "The United States cannot and should not be on the front lines in Syria," Heinrich wrote. He said the announcement puts America closer to the "front lines of a military conflict that has yet to be explicitly authorized by Congress."
"This series of escalations is the classic example of mission creep," Heinrich said.
Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., said that about 15 months ago Obama announced two narrowly focused operations to protect American personnel in Irbil in northern Iraq and a humanitarian effort to save thousands of Iraqi civilians trapped by IS on Mount Sinjar. Since then, the number of U.S. troops in Iraq has risen to an estimated 3,400 and the U.S. has conducted about 7,000 airstrikes in Iraq and Syria at a cost of more than $4.7 billion.
"We are now one year, two months and 23 days into an unauthorized and executive war," Kaine said. "It is time for Congress to do its most solemn job - to debate and declare war. It is also time for the administration to detail to the America people a comprehensive strategy to bring both the conflicts in Iraq and Syria, which are metastasizing around the globe, to a peaceful end."
Republicans on Capitol Hill weren't happy either, but for different reasons.
While Democrats worried about mission creep, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said the decision was "another insufficient step in the Obama administration's policy of gradual escalation."
Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, chairman of the House Armed Service Committee, said a more intensive effort against IS in Syria is overdue, but the small deployment might prove to be too little, too late. "I do not see a strategy for success, rather it seems the administration is trying to avoid a disaster while the president runs out the clock" on his presidency, he said.
rob, what does your insult have to do with another lie from The Liar in Chief not to have US troops actively engaged in combat?
