World leaders speak at the UN – A perilous path for Israel grows more dangerous

By Scott Winchell and Denise Simon– SUA has been showing to the world, along with our many friends, the REAL facts of the history of the area we call “Palestine”. Now Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority seeks to circumvent any further discussions with Israel by asking the UN to unilaterally declare statehood to “Palestine”. As we witness this latest attempt to reduce the security of Israel, or as the Arabs in the Levant and beyond have always wanted, the destruction and annihilation of Israel, hoping to cause it to cease to exist.

Ahmedinejad speaks at the UN Thursday 09-22-01

There is only one truth, it has never been about land, it has always been about the destruction of Israel. Speaking at the UN yesterday, Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad  once again, as he has done repeatedly, denied truths the world knows, and calls for the destruction of Israel. Now, Egypt, in its new iteration, with its new leaders, and the surge of power for the Muslim Brotherhood is declaring peace accords with Israel to be null and void.

Globally, nothing in history has had more attention, more books, more wars, more meetings and more debate than Israel and its people. We cannot accurately count the number of wars involving the Jews as persecution of the Jews is a daily standard. Summits, treaties, borders, government(s), currency, military, oil and gas resource rights all find clauses in the lost counts of agreements, resolutions, accords and declarations. The common argument is the hate of Jews and the installation of Palestine on land undeserving, yet earned by Israel. Peace is fleeting and obscure for the Jews. This video is just a snapshot of how all historical measures taken continue to fail as the honor and respect of Israel is in full opposition to the Islamic doctrine. Tomorrow will look like yesterday.

The following video, featuring Bill Whittle of Pajamas Media once again shows the truth, not the tired Israel hatred Propaganda and revisionist history of the likes of Arab and Iranian leaders. Please watch closely and read the article below from the Fars News Agency:

Camp David Accord No Longer Valid says Prominent Egyptian Politician

TEHRAN (FNA)– A leading Egyptian political activist underlined the necessity of revising Camp David Accord between Cairo and Tel Aviv, stressing that the deal is no more valid.

“Camp David is annulled and has no credit and value,” member of Egypt’s National Association for Change George Ishaq told FNA in Cairo.

“Since the Zionist regime attaches no respect to the accord and in order to reclaim Egypt’s sovereignty over the Sinai region…the agreement should be reviewed and revised,” underlined Ishaq, a former coordinator of Kefaya Movement, a political movement opposing Hosni Mubarak’s regime.

Earlier this month, Egyptian youths stormed the Israeli embassy and destroyed a part of a barricade wall around the building, forcing the Israeli ambassador to fly out of Cairo.

Elsewhere, Ishaq said that Egyptian people will continue protests until the state of emergency in the country comes to an end.

Meantime, a military official said on Wednesday that Egypt’s state of emergency will remain in place until June 2012, stressing that the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) seeks to “end the emergency as soon as possible”.

“The SCAF did not extend or declare the Emergency Law, whose most recent two-year extension, in June 2010, means it is valid until next June,” said General Adel el-Mursi, the head of the Military Judicial Authority.

Abbas Backs Down, Won’t Call For Immediate Vote On Palestinian Statehood

Israel’s Netanyahu Thanks President Obama For ‘Wearing That Badge Of Honor’

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The hopes for Palestinian statehood received a one-two punch at the United Nations on Wednesday with President Barack Obama saying no to statehood without direct negotiations and the French president proposing a time table to restart the talks, giving the Israelis and Palestinians one year to reach an agreement.

Mahmoud Abbas and Obama

“Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the UN. If it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now,” President Obama said.

Obama said in public what he is also saying in private — that a Palestinian state can only be achieved by the Israelis and Palestinians going to the bargaining table and tackling the hard questions that face them. But he stopped short of directly calling on the Palestinians to drop their plan to seek statehood recognition from the UN Security Council.

“Each side has legitimate aspirations and that’s part of what makes peace hard. And the deadlock will only be broken when each side learned to stand in each others’ shoes,” Obama said.

The backroom strategy of the Americans and their allies, sources say, was to try and contain the fallout from the Palestinians’ provocative move by urging Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas not to push for an actual vote in the Security Council, something the U.S. will have to veto.

Abbas reportedly gave in, telling President Obama at their meeting Wednesday that although he will ask the UN for statehood, he will not demand an immediate vote. That means the U.S. will continue to give the Palestinians the $450 million in annual aid they get from us, but it’s unclear if this will mean more anti-American sentiment in the Arab world.

“We will give some time for the Security Council to consider first our full membership before heading to the General Assembly,” senior Fatah Party official Nabile Shaath said.

“President Abbas has already met with Ban Ki-Moon. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, and told him that on Friday he would be submitting to him a letter asking for Security Council discussion and approval.”

“Let us cease our endless debates on the parameters and let us begin negotiations and adopt a precise and ambitious timetable,” French President Nicholas Sarkozy said.

French strategy, in concert with the Americans, is to entice the Palestinians back to the bargaining table by proposing a fast-track one-year time table for negotiations that result in Palestinian statehood.

“Let’s have one month to resume discussions, six months to find agreement on borders and security, one year to reach definitive agreement,” Sarkozy said.

In the West Bank on Wednesday, there were new clashes, with Palestinians hurling rocks at Israeli soldiers. In another village hundreds of Israeli settlers marched in protest, and in Ramallah thousands crowded streets singing and waving flags to show their support for statehood.

With the specter of the U.S. having to veto the Palestinian request for statehood seemingly averted, at least for now, Obama had other fish to fry, like restoring the trust of some American Jews as he seeks re-election. He used the UN platform to help.

“Any lasting peace must acknowledge the very real security concerns that Israel faces every single day,” Obama said. “Israel’s citizens have been killed by rockets fired at their houses and suicide bombs on their buses.”

Obama, first during his speech at the UN and again at a private meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, sought to reassure cynical members of the American Jewish community that he will not end America’s historic alliance with the Jewish state.

“America’s commitment to Israel will never waver and that our pursuit of a just and lasting peace is one that is not only compatible but we think puts Israel’s security at the forefront,” Obama said.

Candidate Obama is under intense pressure from a number of Republican presidential contenders to show Israel more love. Texas Gov. Rick Perry and others are trying to paint the president’s Middle East policy as an insult to Israel and overly sympathetic to the Palestinians, which they regard as harboring terrorist elements.

And so, President Obama was probably thrilled to receive praise from Netanyahu for refusing to rubber stamp the Palestinians’ demand for statehood.

“I think this is a badge of honor and I want to thank you for wearing that badge of honor,” Netanyahu said.

Of course, in a careful balancing act, the president didn’t outright dismiss the Palestinians. He said he wants to see a Palestinian state, too.

“We seek a future where Palestinians live in a sovereign state of their own with no limit to what they can achieve,” Obama said.

Iran Nuke Intel by UN, as it launches Spanish TV Station

Editor’s Note: Iran is constantly forging ahead with its world plans despite all external pressures. Here are two more aspects of this constant chess master’s moves. Reports of Iran creating nuclear warheads as they start a new Spanish language station targeting our southern neighbors gives us great pause. Please stay tuned for more news on this front that you are likely not going to see anywhere else without a lot of digging.

Head of U.N. Nuclear Agency Believes Iran Is Building Nuclear Warhead

VIENNA (AP) — The head of the U.N. nuclear agency on Monday announced plans to publish new information backing up his belief that Iran may be working on a nuclear warhead — developments that leave his organization “increasingly concerned.”

The comments by International Atomic Energy Agency chief Yukiya Amano were significant because it was the first time he revealed plans to release some of the most recent knowledge available to the IAEA leading to such worries. Such new intelligence would likely be detailed in the next report on Iran’s nuclear activities in November.

Iran Government Launching Spanish-Language TV to Target Latin America

CNSNews.com – The Iranian government is racing to launch its first Spanish-language news channel by the end of this year, which is expected to reach audiences in Latin America and Europe, a Brazilian news outlet reported.

HispanTV, the name of the upcoming Iranian channel, has already made its debut on the Web, covering news in Iran, the Americas, the United States, Canada, Middle East, Europe, Asia, and Africa and also reporting on culture, health, sports, society, economy, and technology.

The Iranian channel is expected to air “varied” programming, including interviews and talk shows about movies and books on Iranians and Hispanics. Pilot programs, such as one about the “the massacre of Pakistanis” by the United States are already available on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.

On Aug. 18, the Brazilian newspaper, Folha de São Pao (Folha), reported that HispanTV was aimed to bring “Iran’s vision to the region, particularly South America.” Folha’s story was disseminated by Brazil’s Ministry of Defense.

Folha (Portuguese for sheet/page) highlighted that apart from the governments of Argentina and Colombia, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has close ties with some South American leaders, including Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Bolivian President Hugo Morales, both known for spreading anti-American sentiment in the region.

Iran will bear the full cost of the upcoming TV station, which will join Press TV, the English-based Iranian channel, with coverage on all continents. HispanTV is expected to be based out of Tehran in a building next to PressTV. The station is expected to have a branch in Madrid, Spain and plans to open offices throughout South America. It already has a “permanent contract” with Venezuela’s Telesur channel, but is keeping its doors open to other stations in the region.

The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA), an Iranian state entity, plans to open an office in Brazil. According to the Iranian Embassy in Brazil, the project is ongoing but there is no set date for when the branch will begin operating. Brazil’s official language is Portuguese, making it the only non-Spanish speaking country in Latin American.

Two free satellites will make HispanTV broadcasting possible. Potential consumers will a satellite dish and decoder to access the content.

“Our signal will reach all of Latin America and Europe, and may also be picked up in Brazil,” said Chilean Manuel Raimondi, the managing editor of the upcoming channel, according to the Brazilian newspaper.

“Few agencies have a monopoly of Western news about Iran and the Middle East in Latin America. This will help the population to have access to news without distortion,” said Ali Mohaghegh, the first secretary of the Iranian Embassy in Brazil.

HispanTV is the latest example of Iran’s efforts to create alternative media channels to “giant corporations,” added Folha.

On Aug. 4, Tiroalblanco.cl (Spanish for Target shot), a Chilean news outlet, reported that HispanTV will reach the United States and Canada as well.

HispanTV is in a process of implementation and consolidation, according to Tiroalblanco.cl. The finished product is expected to be comprised of correspondents, columnists, bloggers, and contributors who will join the current team on the channel.

“We work with more than 100 people, mostly Iranian colleagues, of course. Also, we have the valuable support of high level professionals from Spain, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador and Venezuela, all females, which certainly strengthens the incessant news service, ” said Manuel Arismendi, the managing editor of HispanTV, as reported in Tiroalblanco.cl.

The Chilean news outlet reported that, according to Arismendi, by 2012 HispanTV will begin broadcasting “24 hours a day with a variety of programming, including news every half hour, movies, documentaries, television series and feature stories.”

CNSNews.com attempted to reach Arismendi for comment using an e-mail address listed at Tiroblanco.cl, but he did not respond before this story was posted.

During testimony before lawmakers in March 2010, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), a component of the Department of Justice, said the Iran-backed groups Hamas and Hezbollah, which are designated as terrorist organizations by the U.S. State Department, are operating in South America.

“Some DTOs [drug-trafficking organizations] based in the tri-border area have ties to radical Islamic terrorist groups such as Hezbollah,” testified Anthony Placido, the assistant administrator for intelligence at DEA.

“There are numerous reports of cocaine proceeds entering the coffers of Islamic Radical Groups (IRG) such as Hezbollah and Hamas in Europe and the Middle East,” he said.

Nevertheless, Daniel Benjamin, the State Department’s coordinator for counterterrorism, told lawmakers in June 2010 that there is “no credible information” to indicate that the international terrorist organization Hezbollah has an “operational presence in Latin America.”

Although it maintained that “there was no corroborated information that these or other Islamic extremist groups had an operational presence in the TBA [the “tri-border area” of Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina] or elsewhere in the hemisphere,” the Congressional Research Service (CRS) in February 2011 reported that U.S. concerns have increased in recent years over Hezbollah and Hamas’ fundraising activities in South America.

According to the State Department’s latest Country Reports on Terrorism, “Designated as a State Sponsor of Terrorism in 1984, Iran remained the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 2010” providing weapons, training, and funding, to terrorist groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.”
