Uncensored Israel News, Jewish news, National Israeli news

The government trumpets what it sees as major incriminating evidence against Iran: the rockets seized on the hijacked German ship were exactly the same as the ones UNIFIL had discovered in Lebanon. The Lebanese rockets likely belong to PIJ rather than Hezbollah, which recently entered politics and has become cautious about attacking Israel.

The Israeli announcement made no waves in international media because it is not news. Of course Iran supplies Syria, PIJ, and Hezbollah. Obama has already accepted Iran as a Middle East superpower. Of course Muslims are expected to fight Israel. Iran, a sovereign state, can ship arms to whomever it wishes. So Israeli PR is only good for domestic consumption.

While verbally blasting Iran, Lebanon, and even Egypt, which allegedly failed to inspect the cargo (though the Egyptians likely alerted the Americans, which allowed Israel to intercept the ship), the government keeps silent about Russia. But the shipment abounded with Russian, rather than Iranian weapons. The Russians continue to supply Iran with Katyusha rockets despite the weapons embargo.

Raed SalahA Jerusalem court found Raed Salah guilty of assaulting a police officer two years ago. What was the assault? Salah spit at the policeman.

There are thousands of good reasons to sentence Salah, a leader of the Northern Islamic Movement, to life in prison, but the cowardly government opted for a politically neutral pretext.

Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a Palestinian serving in the US military, went on a shooting spree at the Fort Hood base, causing 43 casualties

The Palestinian was overreacting to being posted to Afghanistan. Indeed, sending a devout Muslim into a Muslim country alongside infidel forces is odd.

The chief Palestinian thug has announced that he won’t run in the 2010 elections. Abbas is doing this in order to prompt Clinton to soothe him by pushing Israel to make concessions.

The Americans are unlikely to allow Abbas to resign because his only potential replacement is Dahlan, a Palestinian strongman with no support in Netanyahu’s cabinet. It would take a leftist government in Israel to negotiate with Dahlan or release another possible leader, Marwan Barghouti, from jail.

Merkava tankAn Israeli court has sentenced Nehad Arkaa to three life terms for… blowing up a tank in Gaza. Arkaa, a member of the Popular Resistance Committees, attacked occupying forces in his home territory. He could legitimately be killed as an enemy soldier, but he cannot sentenced as a criminal.

Qom, IranEl Baradei announced that the IAEA inspection of Iranian nuclear facility near Qom turned up nothing but a “hole in a mountain.”

An odd hole it is, surrounded by TOR-1M SAM batteries. Technically, Baradei is telling the truth: the Qom plant is an empty shell, though it is designed to host centrifuges.

In the four weeks from the official disclosure of the Qom nuclear plant to IAEA’s visit, Iran had plenty of time to clean up the place so that IAEA inspectors saw only empty halls.

In an effort to calm public opinion after the horrendous Usherenko family murder, Israeli police released statistics indicating that the crime rate among Russian expatriates is slightly below the Israeli average.

There are lies, big lies, and statistics. Russian expats are older than the Israeli average, so it is no wonder that elderly Russian grandmas are not heavily involved in violent crimes.
The Israeli average is heavily beefed up by Arabs, a highly criminal segment of society. The crime rate among Israel’s non-Russian Jewish population is much lower.

two-point implosionThe Guardian published excerpts from IAEA’s secret memorandum on Iran, which speaks of the ayatollahs mastering the two-point implosion technique.

The term refers to thermonuclear or plutonium-core bombs. That again confirms our estimate that Iran needs the Bushehr and Tehran reactors mainly to extract plutonium from spent fuel rods.
