DOCTOR DOCTORIAN FROM ANGEL OF GOD
then the angel said, Financial crisis will come to Asia. I will shake the world.

JAMES 5:1-3
1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.
3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days.

REVELATION 18:10,17,19
10 Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
17 For in one hour so great riches is come to nought. And every shipmaster, and all the company in ships, and sailors, and as many as trade by sea, stood afar off,
19 And they cast dust on their heads, and cried, weeping and wailing, saying, Alas, alas that great city, wherein were made rich all that had ships in the sea by reason of her costliness! for in one hour is she made desolate.

EZEKIEL 7:19
19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

16 And he(FALSE POPE) causeth all,(WORLD SOCIALISM) both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:(CHIP IMPLANT)
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.(6-6-6) A NUMBER SYSTEM

Spain to test beefed-up EU budget rules
28.02.12 @ 17:56 By Honor Mahony


BRUSSELS - Spain, the eurozone's fourth largest economy, is becoming the first major test of the EU's fresh new rules on budget discipline as it seeks flexibility from Brussels on its deficit targets.Madrid on Monday (27 February) announced that last year's budget deficit was 8.51 percent of GDP, up from an initial estimate of 8.2 percent and well above the 6 percent target agreed with the European Commission last year.Spain, which is supposed to bring its deficit down to 4.4 percent this year and a rules-abiding 3 percent in 2013, has said it will try and negotiate a softer deal.

But the commission is indicating it will play hardball, with tougher fiscal discipline laws only in place since December after previous rules underpinning the euro were breached some 60 times.We need full information on the slippages of 2011 and the reasons for them. We also need full information on the draft budget and planned concrete measures for fiscal consolidation for 2012, EU economic affairs commissioner Olli Rehn said on Tuesday when asked by a Spanish deputy about the possibility of renegotiating the target.He added that EU finance ministers last week reaffirmed their commitment to stick to the rules of the stability and growth pact while ensuring long-term sustainability of public finances.On the same issue, a European Commission spokesperson said: We are not talking about giving any flexibility to the current rule ... We are not talking about giving more flexibility to any member state when it comes to fulfilling commitments.The commission indicated that the eurozone's credibility in the eyes of the markets is at stake.We might think about the need to maintain the credibility of our response to the crisis, said the spokesperson, with any change to Spain's deficit targets having to be agreed by both the commission and the 16 other members of the single currency.Aside from being the first serious test of the commission's enhanced budgetary surveillance powers - fellow euro country Belgium fell into line earlier this year when it was told to curb its spending - the Spanish situation highlights a wider debate about whether too harsh austerity measures risk worsening an already troubled economy.Even within the commission, some voice concerns that the deficit-focused austerity measures are not helping bring down the record unemployment figures, particularly among young people.

Social policy commissioner Laszlo Andor, speaking alongside Olli Rehn in the European Parliament on Tuesday said Spain has the worst statistics and is the greatest challenge for my portfolio.He insisted that there was not just one reason and solution to the unemployment figures and that while labour market reforms have to be part of the agenda,other measures such as improved learning opportunities and investments in the social economy also need to be put in place.Spanish officials also warn that one-sided policies will not help.The fiscal consolidation effort, that is going to be large, has to simultaneously avoid additional and further damage to growth ... his discussion is going to happen not only for Spain, but for the rest of eurozone countries,economy minister Luis de Guindos told the The Wall Street Journal.The commission, for its part says that new solutions are needed to relaunch growth pointing to opening up the internal market still further.Growth will not come through massive budget [spending], said the spokesperson, nor from using solutions of the past where growth was based on public debt.

Ireland to hold referendum on fiscal compact
Today FEB 29,12 @ 17:18 By Valentina Pop


BRUSSELS - In a surprise move, the Irish government on Tuesday (28 February) decided to hold a referendum on the new intergovernmental treaty on fiscal discipline demanded by Germany for future eurozone bail-outs.The Irish people will be asked for their authorisation in a referendum to ratify the European stability treaty, Prime Minister Enda Kenny told parliament in an unplanned intervention.His announcement came after a legal opinion by the country's attorney general which was largely expected to say no referendum would be needed for the ratification of the brief legal text. The new treaty enshrines a balanced budget rule in national legislation and gives the European Court of Justice the right to impose sanctions if the rule is not transposed properly.The so-called fiscal compact, initially planned to be an amendment to the existing EU treaty, was vetoed by the UK in December, which forced other member states to draft it as a separate intergovernmental act. The Czech Republic also opted out in the end, with a formal signing ceremony at 25 - including Ireland - expected on Friday in Brussels.I am very confident that when the importance and merit are communicated to the Irish people that they will endorse it emphatically by voting yes to continuing economic stability and recovery,Kenny said.

EU-related votes have a sorry history in Ireland, where the Lisbon Treaty had to be put twice to a referendum, as voters in first said no to the EU legal text and only reluctantly agreed to it in 2010, amid worsening economic conditions and increased pressure from other member states and the EU commission to approve it.Even as Ireland is currently being portrayed as a 'role model' for the way it has stuck to the austerity programme linked to the €90 billion bail-out it received at the end of 2010, popular anger is high as people see that the money was mostly used to bail out banks, not to create more employment and growth.A Yes vote seems unlikely, especially since other euro-countries do not rely on Ireland to allow for the treaty to come into force.A minimum of 12 out of eurozone's 17 member states have to ratify the text for it to come into force.But if Ireland does not ratify the treaty, it will no longer be eligible for future bail-outs from the European Stability Mechanism - a permanent, €500 billion-strong fund to be set up in July.

Belarus kicks out EU, Polish ambassadors
28.02.12 @ 18:16 By Andrew Rettman


BRUSSELS - Belarus has effectively kicked out the EU and Polish ambassadors to Minsk, with the Union considering diplomatic counter-measures.The Belarusian foreign ministry made the announcement on its website on Tuesday (28 February) - one day after the Union imposed sanctions on 21 jurists and policemen said to have mistreated opposition activists and amid talk of blacklisting President Alexander Lukashenko's ice hockey buddy and regime bankroller, oligarch Yuriy Chizh, in March.

Its press release said: In response, the Belarusian side will close the entry to Belarus to those of the European Union which contributed to the introduction of restrictive measures.It also said that Minsk has pulled back its envoys from Brussels and Warsaw (a leading proponent of sanctions) and suggested that the EU and Polish ambassadors in Minsk should hold consultations with their ministries back home.A Minsk-based ambassador from one EU country told this website: This is what they promised to do earlier.He added: They didn't call it expulsion.It's one step lower. But I guess the EU ambassador will be recalled to Brussels otherwise they will expel her. The same thing happened in 2008 with the US ambassador.The speaker of the Polish parliament Grzegorz Schetyna told press in Warsaw he expects solidarity from other EU countries on the matter. The Polish foreign ministry said it is an unfriendly act against the whole Union.For her part, EU foreign relations chief Catherine Ashton in Brussels called a snap meeting of her EU crisis group, the Political and Security Committee, to discuss potential reactions.An EU diplomat told EUobserver she earlier told foreign and EU affairs ministers gathered in Brussels for a separate council meeting that she is keen for all EU countries to recall their envoys from Minsk.At least one large member state swiftly said it would not recall its envoy, however.Meanwhile, EU neighbourhood commissioner Stefan Fuele told press in the EU capital that the whole affair is a distraction from the real issue - how to get Belarus to free political prisoners.

Top US General Grilled on Iran Strike-For the second time in two weeks Sen. Lindsey Graham took aim at the Pentagon's top man over deteriorating relations with Israel. By Gavriel Queenann First Publish: 2/28/2012, 10:41 PM

US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey on Tuesday told a Senate panel he did not counsel Israel against attacking Iran over its nuclear program.We’ve had a conversation with them about time, the issue of time, Dempsey said, referring to his visit to Israel a month ago.Grilled during a Senate Budget Committee meeting, Dempsey also defended his comment that Iran was a rational actor from Senator Lindsey Graham.We can’t afford to underestimate our potential adversaries by writing them off as irrational, Dempsey said.Asked pointedly by Graham if a military strike by the US was off the table, Dempsey responded, Absolutely not.He stressed the danger of nuclear weapons reaching terrorist groups and the beginning of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East involving countries threatened by Iran.Observers say Graham's decision to corner Dempsey in committee and on the record on Israel and Iran wasn’t surprising.Earlier this month, Dempsey said in a CNN interview that an Israeli strike on Iranian nuclear facilities would be imprudent, destabilizing and would not achieve Israel's long-term objectives.

Those comments led Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to charge Dempsey as being unwilling to aid Israel in ensuring Iran does not obtain nuclear weapons.
Netanyahu said Dempsey's comments served Iran.Within hours Graham and fellow Senator John McCain, who had just met with Netanyahu, took Dempsey to task.Graham told reporters that, while he respected Dempsey, obviously it’s not helpful if there is a well-publicized tension between the US and Israel. We would like to see the United States and Israel agree on a course of action that will lead us toward a goal we both share.People are giving Israel a lot of advice here lately from America, Graham said. I just want to tell our Israeli friends that my advice to you is never lose control of your destiny.Never allow a situation to develop that would destroy the Jewish state, he added.Standing next to Graham, McCain said, There should be no daylight between America and Israel in our assessment of the [Iranian] threat.Unfortunately there clearly is some, added the Senator.Over the weekend, McCain lashed out at the Obama administration’s handling of rising tensions between Israel and Iran.McCain told CNN’s State of the Union that the administration intentionally leaked to the media the reason for the US national security adviser’s trip to Israel – to try to persuade the country not to attack Iran.The prime minister has every reason to be upset,McCain said. I can understand why relations are in very bad shape right now.In recent months Obama administration officials have leaked secret strategy meetings with Mossad chief Tamir Pardo on Iran, as well as Israel's theoretical timetable for an Iran strike.They have also taken the unprecedented step of siding with Iran in accusing Israel of supporting the People's Mujahadeen of Iran in an assassination campaign targeting Iranian nuclear scientists.

Netanyahu: Nuclear Iran Would Choke World Economy-Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu says if the world is worried over what Iran is doing to oil prices now, just wait until they get the bomb.By Gavriel Queenann First Publish: 2/28/2012, 5:35 PM

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday warned a nuclear-armed Iran would exercise de facto control the major Gulf oil producers and choke the global economy.
Everyone needs to understand that if we're worried today about rising oil prices we shall be far more worried if Iran, heaven forbid, gains control over the energy centers in the Persian Gulf,Netanyahu on Israeli radio. Iran would be able to dictate far higher oil prices and, by so doing, choke the world economy.Anyone who is interested in stopping the manipulative use of oil production, its influence on world markets, the threats to the world's economies, must also for that reason enlist to stop Iran's nuclear race, he added.His comments come amid world concern over spiking oil prices due to Iran's ability to negatively impact energy markets.
Israel, the United States, its Western allies, and Gulf Arab states fear Iran's self-proclaimed peaceful nuclear program is a weak facade for a nuclear weapons program.Tehran denies the charge, but the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a report on Friday that Iran had tripled its capacity to enrich uranium to 20-percent purity since November.Enriching uranium to 20 percent is a major step towards purifying it to the 90-percent level needed for a nuclear weapon.Most analysts believe Iran already has a sufficient stockpile of 20% enriched uranium to produce a 15 kiloton nuclear weapon should Tehran decide to push for weaponization. That process, they say, would take Iran 2.5 to 3 months.

Israel, which maintains a policy of nuclear ambiguity is widely considered to the sole nuclear power in the Middle East, and has said all options - meaning a potential military strike - are on the table ensure Iran doesn't join the so-called nuclear club.Iranian officials have repeatedly called for the destruction of Jewish state and called Israel a one bomb state.However, Jerusalem is under intense pressure from Washington and Europe not to launch a pre-emptive military strike, leading Israeli officials to charge they are more concerned about oil prices and imminent electoral races than world security.Netanyahu has said Iran will top the agenda when he meets with US President Barack Obama for talks in the White House on March 5.

Syria Storms Out of UN Human Rights Meeting-Syria’s ambassador to the UN in Geneva threw a tantrum and then stormed out of an emergency session of the UNHRC.By Gavriel Queenann First Publish: 2/28/2012, 8:31 PM

Syria’s ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva threw a tantrum and then stormed out of an emergency session of the U.N. Human Rights Council on Tuesday.Faysal Khabbaz Hamoui charged that sanctions imposed on the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for its brutal year-long crackdown on civilians, prevented Damascus from buying medicines and fuel. He then abruptly walked out the council's emergency debate on Syria.We declare our withdrawal from this sterile discussion, Hamoui said before leaving a room filled with government ministers and senior officials who had gathered for the session.We reaffirm to all those alleged friends of the Syrian people that the simple step to immediately help the Syrian people is to stop inciting sectarianism, providing arms and weapons and funding and putting the Syrian people one against the other, he said.Unjust and unilateral sanctions imposed by some countries on the Syrian people are preventing access to medicines, to fuel in all forms as well as electricity, and are also impeding bank transfers to buy these materials,he said.He accused some members of wanting to use the opening “high-level” segment and convert it into slander and libel.We are convinced that the real aim is to cover up for the violence and murder perpetrated by armed groups against innocent civilians,said Hamoui.

The United Nations’ main human rights body was set to condemn Syria on Tuesday for using heavy weapons on residential areas and persecuting opponents, its fourth rebuke to Assad in an 11-month uprising.UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said she was appalled at the rapidly deteriorating rights and humanitarian situation in Syria and shelling of Homs.Hospitals are overwhelmed and makeshift clinics have been set up in hard-hit areas to treat the wounded, she said.Pillay, a former UN tribunal war crimes judge, reiterated that Syria should be referred to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC).The urgent debate came at the request of Turkey and three Gulf countries, Qatar, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, with backing from the United States and European Union.It began just days after UN investigators accused the highest levels of the Syrian government and army of ordering crimes against humanity including murder, rape and torture.The 47-member forum, which has 'moral authority' but no legal power, looked set to adopt a resolution condemning Syria’s continued widespread and systematic violations, diplomats said.Drafted by the Arab countries and Turkey, the resolution condemns the use of heavy artillery and tanks to attack residential areas ... that have led to the deaths of thousands of innocent civilians.It also voices alarm at the humanitarian crisis in areas lacking food, medicine and fuel and calls for aid agencies to be allowed to deliver vital supplies to civilians in heavily hit areas, especially Homs, Deraa and Zabadani.The meeting came as Assad sent units of an elite armored division into Homs on Tuesday as rebel-held districts came under the heaviest bombardment of a three-week offensive.UNHRC officials in January reported at least 5,400 civilians had been killed by Assad's forces during the year-long crackdown, but stopped counting due to pervasive chaos in the country.Independent human rights organizations say the number of civilian deaths has spiraled to at least 7,300 since then.

Netanyahu Vows to Block Judicial Reform Bills-Netanyahu has said he will continue to block judicial reform bills amid praise for outgoing Supreme Court chief justice Dorit Beinisch.By Gavriel Queenann First Publish: 2/28/2012, 8:21 PM

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday vowed to continue opposing judicial reform in Israel.Speaking at an event for outgoing Supreme Court chief justice Dorit Beinisch, Netanyahu said, We will continue to act to ensure that there would be no danger to the independence of the court.In democracy there are many important institutions. A functioning legal system, however strong and independent, is what allows the existence of all other institutions, he added.That is why I'm doing and will do everything I can to keep the judicial system strong and independent, Netanyahu said. And that is why I appreciate everything you did, Justice Beinisch.For five and a half years you brought honor to your post as the head of the judiciary in Israel. It was not an easy tenure, Netanyahu said. The courts were under attack, and arrows were often aimed directly at you.These attacks were unsuccessful, both against you and the court,Netanyahu said with satisfaction.The court is strong and stable, he added.I did not let anyone harm it. In recent months I stopped every law that threatened to impair the independence of the system. I will continue to do so whenever laws that might impair the independence of the court in Israel are proposed.I wish to congratulate the president-elect, Grunis,Netanyahu concluded. I have no doubt, that under your leadership, the Supreme Court of Israel will continue shine in the world as a beacon of liberty, which the State of Israel and its temple of justice and freedom can be proud of.Critics of the outgoing Beinisch say her tenure was marked by a partisan judicial activism that frequently impinged on the prerogatives of Israel's Knesset and government, effectively overriding the sovereign will of the people expressed through their representatives.

Of particular note was her court's extensive reliance on a still-controversial decision by Israel's Supreme Court in 1997 that defined Israel's Basic Laws as Israel's formal Constitution, thereby allowing for the power of judicial review.
Israel's formal constitution has been deadlocked in committee since the founding of the state, and its Basic Laws can be altered by a simple majority vote.Under Beinisch, Israel's Supreme Court took a strong-view of its own powers and did not deem it necessary to abide by the limits - both formal and self-imposed - which its contemporaries around the world customarily observe vis-a-vis judicial review.Among the bills Netanyahu proudly killed in committee in recent months were attempts to implement the concept of legal standing in Israel's courts, and the review of Supreme Court candidates by Israeli lawmakers.In law, standing or locus standi is the term for the ability of a party to demonstrate to the court sufficient connection to and harm from the law or action challenged to support that party's right to petition the court.Standing is not only a bedrock principle in Western common law, but appears in a less crystallized form in both the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds as well.The review of potential judicial candidates by lawmakers is common, but not universal, in democracies around the world and serves to ensure courts represent the plurality of Israeli views.Israel's current system of appointments for Supreme Court justices has been criticized as creating a court has a very narrow ethnic, political, and social character.Beinisch, along with Netanyahu and Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein, actively opposed all attempts to define the limits of the Supreme Court's powers, charging such moves were undemocratic.Incoming Supreme Court chief justice Asher Grunis is seen as having a far more conservative view of what is judiciable by the court, and is expected to exercise far greater restraint than Benisch did.

Faith Ethicists Argue in Favor of After-Birth Abortions as Newborns Are Not Persons
Posted on February 27, 2012 at 3:38pm by Liz Klimas Liz Klimas
Ethicists Argue for Acceptance of After Birth Abortions

Alberto Giubilini with Monash University in Melbourne and Francesca Minerva at the Centre for Applied Philosophy and Public Ethics at the University of Melbourne write that in circumstances occur[ing] after birth such that they would have justified abortion, what we call after-birth abortion should be permissible.The two are quick to note that they prefer the term after-birth abortion as opposed to infanticide. Why? Because it [emphasizes] that the moral status of the individual killed is comparable with that of a fetus (on which abortions in the traditional sense are performed) rather than to that of a child.The authors also do not agree with the term euthanasia for this practice as the best interest of the person who would be killed is not necessarily the primary reason his or her life is being terminated. In other words, it may be in the parents’ best interest to terminate the life, not the newborns.The circumstances, the authors state, where after-birth abortion should be considered acceptable include instances where the newborn would be putting the well-being of the family at risk, even if it had the potential for an acceptable life. The authors cite Downs Syndrome as an example, stating that while the quality of life of individuals with Downs is often reported as happy, such children might be an unbearable burden on the family and on society as a whole, when the state economically provides for their care.

Ethicists Argue for Acceptance of After Birth Abortions

This means a newborn whose family (or society) that could be socially, economically or psychologically burdened or damaged by the newborn should have the ability to seek out an after-birth abortion. They state that after-birth abortions are not preferable over early-term abortions of fetuses but should circumstances change with the family or the fetus in the womb, then they advocate that this option should be made available.The authors go on to state that the moral status of a newborn is equivalent to a fetus in that it cannot be considered a person in the morally relevant sense. On this point, the authors write:Both a fetus and a newborn certainly are human beings and potential persons, but neither is a person in the sense of subject of a moral right to life. We take person to mean an individual who is capable of attributing to her own existence some (at least) basic value such that being deprived of this existence represents a loss to her.Merely being human is not in itself a reason for ascribing someone a right to life. Indeed, many humans are not considered subjects of a right to life: spare embryos where research on embryo stem cells is permitted, fetuses where abortion is permitted, criminals where capital punishment is legal.Giubilini and Minerva believe that being able to understand the value of a different situation, which often depends on mental development, determines personhood. For example, being able to tell the difference between an undesirable situation and a desirable one. They note that fetuses and newborns are potential persons. The authors do acknowledge that a mother, who they cite as an example of a true person, can attribute subjective moral rights to the fetus or newborn, but they state this is only a projected moral status.The authors counter the argument that these potential persons have the right to reach that potential by stating it is over-ridden by the interests of actual people (parents, family, society) to pursue their own well-being because, as we have just argued, merely potential people cannot be harmed by not being brought into existence.

And what about adoption? Giubilini and Minerva write that, as for the mother putting the child up for adoption, her emotional state should be considered as a trumping right. For instance, if she were to suffer psychological distress from giving up her child to someone else — they state that natural mothers can dream their child will return to them — then after-birth abortion should be considered an allowable alternative.The authors do not tackle the issue of what age an infant would be considered a person.The National Catholic Register thinks that these authors are right — once you accept their ideas on personhood. The Register states that the argument made by the ethicists is almost pro-life in that it highlights the absurdity of the pro-abortion argument:The second we allow ourselves to become the arbiters of who is human and who isn’t, this is the calamitous yet inevitable end. Once you say all human life is not sacred, the rest is just drawing random lines in the sand.First Things, a publication of the The Institute on Religion and Public Life, notes that while this article doesn’t mean the law could — or would — allow after-birth abortions in future medical procedures, arguments such as the right to dehydrate the persistently unconscious began in much the same way in bioethics journals.

JOB 24:1-25 (WHAT NEW WORLD ORDER CONTROL FREAKS DO TO US)
1 Why, seeing times are not hidden from the Almighty, do they that know him not see his days?
2 Some remove the landmarks; they violently take away flocks, and feed thereof.
3 They drive away the ass of the fatherless, they take the widow's ox for a pledge.
4 They turn the needy out of the way: the poor of the earth hide themselves together.
5 Behold, as wild asses in the desert, go they forth to their work; rising betimes for a prey: the wilderness yieldeth food for them and for their children.
6 They reap every one his corn in the field: and they gather the vintage of the wicked.
7 They cause the naked to lodge without clothing, that they have no covering in the cold.
8 They are wet with the showers of the mountains, and embrace the rock for want of a shelter.
9 They pluck the fatherless from the breast, and take a pledge of the poor.
10 They cause him to go naked without clothing, and they take away the sheaf from the hungry;
11 Which make oil within their walls, and tread their winepresses, and suffer thirst.
12 Men groan from out of the city, and the soul of the wounded crieth out: yet God layeth not folly to them.
13 They are of those that rebel against the light; they know not the ways thereof, nor abide in the paths thereof.
14 The murderer rising with the light killeth the poor and needy, and in the night is as a thief.
15 The eye also of the adulterer waiteth for the twilight, saying, No eye shall see me: and disguiseth his face.
16 In the dark they dig through houses, which they had marked for themselves in the daytime: they know not the light.
17 For the morning is to them even as the shadow of death: if one know them, they are in the terrors of the shadow of death.
18 He is swift as the waters; their portion is cursed in the earth: he beholdeth not the way of the vineyards.
19 Drought and heat consume the snow waters: so doth the grave those which have sinned.
20 The womb shall forget him; the worm shall feed sweetly on him; he shall be no more remembered; and wickedness shall be broken as a tree.
21 He evil entreateth the barren that beareth not: and doeth not good to the widow.
22 He draweth also the mighty with his power: he riseth up, and no man is sure of life.
23 Though it be given him to be in safety, whereon he resteth; yet his eyes are upon their ways.
24 They are exalted for a little while, but are gone and brought low; they are taken out of the way as all other, and cut off as the tops of the ears of corn.
25 And if it be not so now, who will make me a liar, and make my speech nothing worth?

Why is a Monsanto lobbyist serving as the FDA's Food Safety Czar?

Why is a former Monsanto lobbyist currently serving as the FDA's food safety czar waging war on small dairy farms that produce fresh milk? While factory farm operators are getting away with serious food safety violations, raw milk dairy farmers and distributors across the country have been subjected to armed raids and hauled away in handcuffs.The Food and Drug Administration is running sting operations followed by guns-drawn raids usually reserved for terrorists and drug lords as part of a crackdown on unpasteurized milk.1 Meanwhile, the FDA is letting the highly consolidated industrial meat and factory farm industry off the hook despite growing problems.Not surprisingly, the person responsible for prioritizing armed raids on small dairies over holding agribusiness accountable is a former Monsanto attorney and chief super lobbyist. Monsanto's Michael Taylor is the second highest-ranking official at the FDA, and as Food Safety Czar is responsible for implementing the day-to-day policies that govern the food safety laws for the U.S. 2

Tell President Obama to fire Monsanto's Michael Taylor from his job as Food Czar at the FDA.Whether or not you think unpasteurized milk is a good idea, it's clear that the FDA under Michael Taylor has its priorities wrong. When industrial agribusiness sickens thousands of people, it's absurd for the FDA to target Amish farmers producing fresh milk, much less to engage in guns drawn enforcement raids.CREDO is joining our allies at Food Democracy Now! in calling on the president to fire Monsanto's Michael Taylor from the FDA. Midwestern farmers will play an important symbolic role in President Obama's reelection campaign. We need to let the president know that we stand with small farmers and not Monsanto! Michael Taylor seems focused on entirely the wrong aspects of food safety enforcement. Rather than making sure that food safety inspections are done properly at our nation's largest factory farms, where antibiotic resistance has run amuck, Taylor has been leading a departmental crusade against small raw milk dairy producers. So far several dairy farmers have been subject to a year-long undercover sting operation from the East Coast to California.Incredibly, Michael Taylor and FDA inspectors have not arrested or fined the Iowa agribusinessman -- Jack DeCoster -- who was wholly responsible for the more than 500 million eggs that were recalled in 2010 salmonella-tainted egg recall. 3Though this industrial agribusinessman endangered the health of millions, Michael Taylor thinks Amish farmers producing fresh milk are more deserving targets of his FDA enforcement raids with guns drawn.

While CREDO recognizes the inherent risks that are involved in food production, it's time that the U.S. government start responsibly looking into the real origins of our nation's largest food safety recalls and stop harassing family farmers trying to survive in the excessively consolidated food and agricultural sectors.Tell President Obama to fire Monsanto's Michael Taylor from his job as Food Czar at the FDA.Thanks for standing up for small farmers and taking our government back from Monsanto.

USDA GIVE MONSANTO'S NEW GMO CROPS SPECIAL SPEED APPROVAL Anthony Gucciardi Natural Society / News Analysis Published: Sunday 26 February 2012This is a move to help Monsanto and other biotechnology giants squash competition and make profits.
http://www.nationofchange.org/usda-give-monsanto-s-new-gmo-crops-special-speed-approval-1330267848

If you thought Monsanto’s lack of testing on their current GMO crops was bad before, prepare to now be blown away by the latest statement by the USDA. Despite links to organ damage and mutated insects, the USDA says that it is changing the rules so that genetically modified seed companies like Monsanto will get speedier regulatory reviews. With the faster reviews, there will be even less time spent on evaluating the potential dangers. Why? Because Monsanto is losing sales with longer approval terms.The changes are expected to take full effect in March when they’re published in the Federal Register. The USDA’s goal is to cut the approval time for GMO crops in half in order to speedily implement them into the global food supply. The current USDA process takes longer than they would like due to public interest, legal challenges, and the challenges associated with the advent of national organic food standards‘ says USDA deputy administrator Michael Gregoire.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, problems like public interest (activist groups attempting to bring the dangers of GMO crops to light), legal challenges (farmers suing Monsanto over genetic contamination), and national food standards are all getting in the way of their prime goal — to helpMonsanto unleash their latest untested GMO creation. In fact, the concern is that Monsanto may be losing cash flow as nations like Brazil speed genetically modified seeds through laughable approval processes.Steve Censky, chief executive officer of the American Soybean Association, states it quite plainly. This is a move to help Monsanto and other biotechnology giants squash competition and make profits. After all, who cares about public health? It is a concern from a competition standpoint, Censky said in a telephone interview.The same statements are re-iterated by analyst Jeff Windau in an interview with Bloomberg:If you can reduce the approval time, you get sales that much faster,said Windau.If you can reduce the approval time, as in the time it takes to determine if these food products are safe, then you can get sales much faster. Is the USDA working for the United States consumer, or is it working for Monsanto?

FRENCH UNIVERSITY TRYS TO STOP ANTI-SEMITISM AGAINST ISRAEL

University Closes Doors on Israel Apartheid Week-A French university is closing doors for two days in attempt to prevent Israel Apartheid Week events from taking place on campus grounds.By Rachel Hirshfeld First Publish: 2/27/2012, 11:50 AM

A French university, Paris Sorbonne No.8, will be closing its doors for two days in an attempt to prevent Israel Apartheid Week events from taking place on campus grounds.The president of the university, Pascal Binczak, decided to close its doors for two days, as a result of a conference entitled Israel: an Apartheid State? that purportedly aims to discuss new social, historical and legal methods of internationally boycotting Israel.Binczak’s decision to close the university on Monday and Tuesday received the backing of the French courts. Anti-Israel activists have said, however, that they will nonetheless hold the event by force. In response to charges by the activists that not allowing the event will impair academic freedom,the university has said that there is no academic freedom at an event where the other side cannot respond, Israel Radio reported.While the anti-Israeli group did originally receive permission to hold the event, the university withdrew the decision due to the event’s highly polemic nature and likelihood to cause disturbances to public order.

The university suggested, however, that while the event cannot be held on campus grounds, the group can host the event in another location.The group filed a petition to the administrative court in an attempt to override president Binczak's decision, but the court rejected the request.The group stated:Is it no longer possible to exercise freedom of speech in French universities in relation to the field of the politics of Israel and Palestine? The cancellation of the upcoming conference is a clear demonstration of how the management of a public academic institution will yield to the injunctions and threats from a corpus that presents itself as the voice of the entire Jewish community in France but is in reality a mouthpiece for the Israeli embassy.Binczak published an article in the French newspaper Le Monde defending his decision. He cited a recent surge in anti-Semitic incidents on campus including graffiti and other defacements linking the Jewish Star of David to a Nazi swastika. He said such instances and the hostile and biased tone of the event were cause for concern and reason to close university grounds. He said that the group was taking advantage of academic freedom.

Van Rompuy: National parliaments are EU institutions
Today FEB 28,12 @ 09:29 By Valentina Pop


BRUSSELS - Tasked with approving bail-outs, national budgets and labour market policies which can affect the stability of the eurozone, national parliaments are similar to European institutions, Herman Van Rompuy, EU council president, said Monday (27 February).In the old days, exaggerating just slightly, the European Community used to exist on one planet, and national politics on six, nine, twelve, fifteen other planets. This is over now. The debt crisis, difficult and painful as it is, brings home the fact that the Union is us, Van Rompuy told a gathering of national and EU deputies discussing economic policy across the bloc.He noted that decisions by one national parliament - be it in Germany, Ireland, Slovakia or Portugal - are now being watched all over Europe when it comes to approving tax-payer funded bail-outs or adopting deficit reduction measures.Maybe not formally speaking, but at least politically speaking, all national parliaments have become, in a way, European institutions, Van Rompuy said.

Sovereignty

This development also comes at the expense of some sovereignty. National parliaments keep their budgetary sovereignty, at least as long as national policies do not threaten the financial stability of the whole. To prevent that, countries in excessive deficit will conclude a 'contract' with the European Commission to bring down the deficit below the 3 percent ceiling (of gross domestic product).But deficits are not the only area where parliaments have to take into account the EU and other member states: economic reforms such as in the labour market have a major impact on the rest of the union.The commission and other euro area member states have to be consulted before adoption of any major fiscal or economic policy reform with potential spill-over effects, so as to allow for an assessment of possible impact on the euro area as a whole, Van Rompuy explained, adding that it is the responsibility of national parliaments to adapt to this new situation.He encouraged national MPs to speak to their counterparts from other member states, as well as to euro-deputies.As an outsider, I sometimes have the impression that the European Parliament and the national parliaments live in different worlds: the one always pushing for more integration, the others focussing on domestic issues and pulling the brakes,he noted.The crisis has brought about a new level of interdependence and co-operation, Van Rompuy stressed, summing it up under the slogan Europe is domestic policy.But some national MPs disagreed.Bill Cash, a Conservative from the British House of Commons, flatly rejected Van Rompuy's assertion that national parliaments have become EU institutions: This is not the case. Taxation and spending belong to national electees, based on national political platforms,he said.

A Greek parliamentarian, Valeras Athanasiou, was less concerned about the institutional debate as he was about the consequences of applying debt and deficit reduction measures at a time of deep recession in southern countries.This destroys the lives of our people. We cannot go on with Germans pressured to pay more and Greek people afraid of having to do more and more to get the financial assistance, he said.But EU commission chief Jose Manuel Barroso, also present at the debate, said that what was needed now in Greece was for leaders to speak the truth and confront people with the alternatives.Fiscal stimulus is not the solution, with markets watching every move, but smart fiscal consolidation, he said, meaning more austerity.

EU diplomats: Serbia to get candidate status
Today FEB 28,12 @ 09:29 By Andrew Rettman


BRUSSELS - EU diplomatic sources say objections raised by Lithuania, Poland and Romania are not serious enough to stop ministers recommending that Serbia gets official candidate status.French foreign minister Alain Juppe jumped the gun on Monday (27 February) by telling press in Brussels one hour before internal talks on Serbia that the Balkan country is heading for the upgrade.There was an agreement today ... At least, there were no further objections, he said.Lithuania, Poland and Romania later at the meeting raised concerns that Moscow has too much influence on Belgrade and that Serbia is mistreating its so-called Vlach Romanian minority.One EU diplomat told this website on Tuesday morning the complaints are not party stoppers, however.He said the negative remarks are due to the fact all EU countries wanted to air views at a historic moment for the Union and to increase pressure for reform. It's good that countries raise these things so that we don't get carried away in a sort of whoopee,the source noted.I am sure we'll have a good conclusion,a diplomat from one of the three objecting EU countries said. We are not blocking Serbia, but on the condition of enhanced monitoring by the [European] commission,a contact from another objecting country added.Serbian President Boris Tadic and EU foreign relations chief Catherine Ashton also voiced optimism late on Monday at a press briefing in the EU capital. I really hope that tomorrow we will see the General Affairs Council [Gac] move forward, Ashton said.In terms of process, if EU foreign ministers at the Gac on Tuesday endorse the move, EU leaders are likely to rubber stamp it at a summit later this week.Serbia will then qualify for EU pre-accession money and might get the green light from EU leaders in December to open accession talks.

Serbia has problems with corruption and judicial reform. But the elephant in the room is the future status of Kosovar Serbs in north Kosovo, who reject central control by Kosovar Albanian authorities - a problem described as a frozen conflict by some EU diplomats.The EU candidate decision is to come after Belgrade last year handed over its top war crimes fugitives and last week agreed to let Kosovo speak under its independent flag in multilateral meetings and to sign international agreements as if it was a normal country.Its participation in meetings is to come with a footnote that this is without prejudice to the fact it does not have UN recognition, but also that the International Court of Justice says its declaration of independence was legal.Ashton noted that the European Commission will shortly produce a feasibility study on how the EU can sign legal pacts with Kosovo despite the fact that five EU countries do not recognise it.An EU official earlier told this website: We are the best in the world when it comes to squaring the circle. Perhaps there could be a legal agreement accompanied by a declaration that it [for instance, a trade pact] only applies to this and this, but not that [status].For their part, Kosovar Albanian nationalists from the Vetevendosje (meaning Self-Determination) political party have held protests in Pristina to say the footnote on international meetings fortifies non-recognition.The EU is feeding the little octopus [Serbia] so that it can separate it from the big octopus [Russia], but the problem is that the little octopus has its tentacles deep inside Kosovo,Albin Kurti, a Vetevendosje leader, told this website in the Kosovar capital late last year.

Eurozone expected Greek downgrade
Today FEB 28,12 @ 09:29 By Valentina Pop


BRUSSELS - Standard & Poor's on Monday (27 February) downgraded Greece to selective default due to a bond swap operation aimed at slashing some €100 billion off national debt.Under the operation, which will take place between 8 and 11 March, banks and private investors will voluntarily trade their old Greek bonds for new ones, taking a net loss of up to 70 percent, depending on the maturity of the bond. So-called sweeteners to the tune of €30 billion will accompany the deal to make the swap less painful.If the exchange is consummated (which we understand is scheduled to occur on or about March 12, 2012), we will likely consider the selective default to be cured and raise the sovereign credit rating on Greece to the CCC category, reflecting our forward-looking assessment of Greece's creditworthiness, the US-based ratings agency said in a statement.A triple-C rating is still considered junk territory, reflecting Greece's uncertain economic growth prospects and still large government debt, even after the debt restructuring is concluded.The agency also warned that if there are not sufficient bondholders taking up the swap offer,we believe that Greece would face an imminent outright payment default. This is because of its lack of access to market funding and the likely unavailability of additional official financing.It added that if Greece were to exit the eurozone and re-introduce the drachma currecny, its national bank would no longer be part of the European system of central banks and its long-term perspective would be even worse.

Eurozone chief Jean-Claude Juncker said in an emailed statement to press the latest downgrade was duly anticipated and taken into account when planning the bond swap in the first place.I look forward to a high participation of private creditors in the private sector involvement [PSI] operation and take note of S&P’s intention to upgrade the lower ratings following the settlement of the bond exchange,he added.The Greek ministry of finance also said the downgrade was expected during the PSI operation. The downgrade has no impact in the Greek banking sector as its liquidity effect has been addressed by the Bank of Greece,it said in an emailed statement.
Last week, the Greek parliament passed the so-called collective action clauses law, which establishes the legal basis for the bond swap to take place. At least two thirds of the new bonds on offer will have to be taken up by private investors for the operation to be deemed successful.Not all banks welcome the deal.Germany's Commerzbank last week questioned the voluntary nature of the operation. The participation in the haircut is as voluntary as a confession during the Spanish Inquisition,Commerzbank CEO Martin Blessing said.

Watchdog warns of blatant racism against Roma
27.02.12 @ 18:45 By Nikolaj Nielsen


BRUSSELS - Europe's Roma population is subject to growing discrimination and more and more attacks by extremist groups, according to the Strasbourg-based human rights watchdog, the Council of Europe (CoE).The council in a 250-page report published on Monday (27 February) said they suffer from blatant racism and have a life expectancy 10 years less than the average in several EU member states including Hungary, Spain and the United Kingdom.They remain far behind others in education, employment, access to decent housing and health, the CoE's human rights commissioner Thomas Hammarberg told reporters in Brussels.He noted that a cycle of disadvantage, exclusion, segregation and marginalisation feeds into a growing anti-gypsyism that uses Roma as a scapegoat to explain away society's ills while simultaneously depriving them of any chance to improve their lives.The council report cited as examples of the trend recent marches into Roma camps by Hungarian exremist groups wearing paramilitary uniforms. Extremists in the country between 2008 and 2009 murdered six Roma, including a five-year-old child.It added that in Sofia, Roma families were 10 years ago forced out of homes they legally owned to make way for a commercial centre. The families were placed in shipping containers, described as temporary housing units by the government until more adequate lodging could be found. But after nearly a decade, the families are still in the containers where they share a single outdoor faucet. None have toilets.

The stories are not unique.In Italy in 2008 the image of Italian holidaymakers sunbathing on the beach next to the corpses of two Roma girls drew widespread condemnation.Meanwhile, Ivan Ivanov, the executive director of the Brussels-based European Roma Information Office, said it is a popular misconception that Roma-related problems are concentrated solely in eastern and central Europe.Roma civil society in eastern and central European countries are generally better developed and more vocal than their western counterparts, he told EUobserver, noting that severe problems exist in the Netherlands, Ireland, Spain, Italy and France.The French authorities are for instance still deporting Roma migrants from other EU countries despite the uproar in 2010 when it was discovered they were officially targeting the ethnic group and had labeled them as a threat against public security.
Integrating Roma starts by Europe coming to terms with the crimes committed against the population, the CoE noted.The apology and recognition of crimes against the Roma is the first step,said Hammarberg.The Roma population was decimated by Nazi Germans but this was never acknowledged at the 1946 Nuremburg trials which sentenced Hitler's inner circle to death for crimes against humanity.The European Commission has requested all EU member states to submit strategy reports and actions plans on how to best integrate the around 10 million Roma into their respective societies.The plans should present a set of policy measures to improve their education, employment, healthcare and housing.Nineteen final texts have been submitted to the commission while the remainder are either draft versions or have yet to be submitted. Member states are scheduled to discuss the national strategies at the end of March.To be honest, some of the strategies are far from the European Commission’s criteria,said Ivanov, noting that the final draft version of the submitted Dutch action plan is only six-pages long.

16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.
17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place.
18 And your covenant with death shall be disannulled, and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you: for morning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night: and it shall be a vexation only to understand the report.

PA May Break Oslo Accords Again and stop Working with IDF-The Palestinian Authority may nullify another part of the Oslo Accords and halt security cooperation with Israel, a PLO leader says.By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu First Publish: 2/28/2012, 3:45 PM

The Palestinian Authority (PA) may nullify another part of the moribund Oslo Accords and halt security cooperation with Israel, Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) secretary Yasser Abed Rabbo told the London-based Al Quds Al Arabi newspaper.
Everything is subject for reevaluation, but there is no final decision made yet, he was quoted as saying by the International Middle East Media Center.Abed Rabbo said a halt to cooperation with the IDF would be in retaliation for continued Jewish development in parts of Judea and Samaria. Under the Oslo Accords, the PA is committed to work with Israel to fight terror as part of its program for self-government.Although the IDF has been required to carry out arrests of many terrorists, most of them from Hamas and in areas controlled by the PA, the security cooperation has been credited in the past with reducing terror.However, a steady escalation of deadly firebomb and rock attacks on Israeli motorists in the last several months has left many parts of Judea and Samaria without any security at all. More deterioration in security cooperation could further endanger Jews in Judea and Samaria, with the PA turning a blind eye and the IDF reluctant to act alone and be accused of fueling Arab anger.

Abbas has violated the Oslo Accords several times, including manning a police force beyond the numbers allowed in the agreement and turning them into a military force, also a contradiction of terms.The United States arbitrarily changed the conditions of the agreement, using heavy pressure on Israel, to skip over a phase for an interim Palestinian Authority. Instead, then U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice decided to move ahead for final status for the PA.After PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas failed to win his political and territorial demands, he violated the Oslo Accords by carrying out a unilateral move to win recognition in the United Nations instead of doing so by talks with Israel. Abbas told the Egyptian television last Friday he plans to make a dramatic announcement within 10 days as a reaction to the diplomatic impasse. He may be timing the announcement to coincide with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s visit in Washington next week.Abed Rabbo said that Israel’s refusal to slap a second building freeze on Jews in Judea and Samaria has created the current deep freeze in relations, which would be further damaged by a lack of security cooperation.Israel temporarily halted new building a year and a half ago to satisfy Abbas’ condition for resuming talks for establishing the Palestinian Authority as a state, but he then balked, arguing that the freeze was not comprehensive enough. A de facto freeze still is in effect in most parts of Judea and Samaria.

PA Arabs Riot, Hurl Firebombs at Israelis-Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted in the capital and hurled rocks at Israelis Monday in what appears to be a renewal of the Oslo War.By Chana Ya'ar First Publish: 2/28/2012, 12:30 AM

Palestinian Authority Arabs rioted in the capital and hurled firebombs at Israelis Monday in what appears to be the start of a third wave of the Oslo War, or what the Arabs refer to as an intifada.In Jerusalem, Arab rioters threw large, sharp-edged rocks and firebombs – Molotov cocktails – at Border Police officers in the A-Tur neighborhood. Most of the rioters were Arabs who are eligible to vote in Palestinian Authority elections, although some also carry the blue Israeli identity cards that entitles them to all the privileges of any other Israeli citizen.Five of the rioters were arrested, and police were eventually forced to resort to using anti-riot measures in order to control the violent mob.Palestinian Authority Arabs also hurled four firebombs towards the Qalandia crossing, south of Ramallah, on Monday evening. There were no casualties or damage.Earlier in the day, a vehicle with Israeli license plates was damaged by rocks hurled by Arabs as the driver traveled past the Gilo area, south of Jerusalem. No one was physically injured, although the experience was traumatic. IDF soldiers were dispatched to the scene of the attack.

Last Tuesday, a mob of PA Arabs repeatedly ambushed drivers traveling along Highway 60 as they passed the center of Beit Ummar, a village in Judea located between Gush Etzion and Kiryat Arba-Hevron. One particularly vicious attack that day was photographed by an Associated Press photographer and the victim, Zehava Weiss, shared the details of her experience with Arutz Sheva.Video footage of the repeated ambushes was filmed, and a gaggle of photographers was also seen eagerly racing to get good shots of the lethal attacks, which appeared to further encourage the attackers. No IDF soldiers or any other security forces were visible, although it is unclear why, since an Israeli pillbox military guard post is located right next to the site of the attack.

U.S. Official: Israel Won't Warn Us Before an Attack on Iran-U.S. intelligence official says Israel has made it clear it won’t warn the U.S. ahead of a strike against Iranian nuclear facilities.By Elad Benari First Publish: 2/28/2012, 6:16 AM

Israeli officials have made it clear they won’t warn the U.S. if they decide to launch a pre-emptive strike against Iranian nuclear facilities, a U.S. intelligence official told The Associated Press on Monday.The official said the pronouncement was delivered in a series of private, top-level conversations.According to the AP report, Israeli officials said that if they eventually decide a strike is necessary, they would keep the Americans in the dark to decrease the likelihood that the U.S. would be held responsible for failing to stop Israel's potential attack.The report said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak delivered the message to a series of top-level U.S. visitors to the country, including the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Martin Dempsey, the White House national security adviser and the director of national intelligence, and top U.S. lawmakers.The U.S. official, who spoke to the news agency on condition of anonymity, said that Netanyahu delivered the same message to all the Americans who have traveled to Israel for talks.According to AP, the apparent decision to keep the U.S. in the dark also stems from Israel's frustration with the White House. After a recent visit by National Security Adviser Tom Donilon, the report said, Israel became convinced the Americans would neither take military action, nor go along with unilateral action by Israel against Iran. The Israelis concluded they would have to conduct a strike unilaterally, a point they are likely to hammer home in a series of meetings over the next two weeks in Washington, the official told the news agency.

Barak will meet with top administration and congressional officials during his visit, while Netanyahu arrives in Washington on March 5 for meetings with President Barack Obama.Netanyahu recently said publicly that sanctions against the Islamic Republic are not working, a sentiment supported by U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency chief Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess in a testimony given to U.S. lawmakers.Netanyahu is widely believed to back Barak, who believes a pre-emptive military strike on Iran's nuclear program must be made before Tehran enters the immunity zone.Barak's so-called immunity zone is a theoretical point of no return after which Iran's nuclear program would be so diffuse and well protected that an Israeli strike could not sufficiently delay Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Rep. Mike Rogers, who recently visited Israel and met with officials on the Iranian issue, was quoted as having told CNN on Monday, I got the sense that Israel is incredibly serious about a strike on their nuclear weapons program.Rogers added,It’s their calculus that the administration ... is not serious about a real military consequence to Iran moving forward. They believe they're going to have to make a decision on their own, given the current posture of the United States.The White House did not respond to AP’s requests for comment on the anonymous official’s remarks, and the Pentagon and Office of Director of National Intelligence declined to comment, as did the Israeli Embassy in Washington.The remarks seem to back recent reports, according to which Israeli officials told Dempsey that Israel would give President Barack Obama no more than 12 hours notice if and when it attacks Iran.The report said that the Netanyahu government also will not coordinate with the United States an attack on the Islamic Republic.Despite the latest reports, U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro insisted last week that the United States and Israel are coordinated on steps being taken to confront Iran's nuclear program.

MK Katz: After Beinisch, Arutz Sheva Radio will Return-National Union head: Beinisch took the law into her hands and waged war against Israel's sacred values. By Gil Ronen First Publish: 2/28/2012, 1:11 PM

National Union Chairman Yaakov Katz (Ketzaleh) had no warm words for outgoing Supreme Court President Dort Beinisch Tuesday. He predicted that Beinisch's retirement would eventually enable the reversal of the High Court ruling that closed down Arutz Sheva's popular radio station in 2003.In Jewish tradition it is written – a person must say a blessing over bad things just as he says it over the good things,MK Katz said Tuesday at B'sheva Magazine's Ninth Jerusalem Conference.For years, Beinisch has waged wars against sacred values: Judea and Samaria, Arutz Sheva, the Shin Bet, [the IDF in relation to] Sabra and Shatila and many other subjects. She took the unimportant point and made it the central one.All of the IDF's successes are despite Beinisch. All of the diverse settlement in Judea and Samaria – is despite Beinisch. A judge who was not elected to rule the country, appropriated the power to rule the country, cancelled important laws, marked a target and then fired the arrows. She took the law into her own hands. Who gave her permission? She was not elected.The Supreme Court is not permitted to strike down laws that the elected representatives of the people decided upon. Not only this,he predicted, all of the laws that the Supreme Court canceled will come back to life, including [the law that allowed the operation of] Arutz Sheva, for which we will receive compensation for all of the suffering we have experienced over the years.

Ketzaleh referred to the so-called Grunis Law, which he had authored, which made it possible for Judge Asher Grunis to replace Beinisch. After the ratification of the Grunis Law, a fundamental change has taken place, as Haaretz wrote,he said. The Supreme Court no longer decides who will be [its] president and who will be a judge – rather, the Knesset, the representatives of the people, decide this. This is the greatest victory.

Op-Ed: The Obama Domino Doctrine: Pro-Iran/Anti-Saudi
Published: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 5:35 AM

Obama has his own Domino Doctrine for the Muslim world. As a consequence of this doctrine, Obama’s Iranian Nuclear policy can be summed up as full of sound and fury, signifying nothing and Saudi Arabia is in even more danger than Israel.Mark Langfan

Remember, for one second, in January 2011, before even a dozen demonstrators were killed, a small herd of camel-riding Mubarakists rode into Tahrir Square trampling some protesters underfoot, and Obama immediately flew into an apoplectic rage, gliding close to personally claiming that Mubarak was a war criminal for attacking peaceful democratic demonstrators. But in February 2012, after Assad has murdered over 10,000 Sunni mostly totally unarmed civilians by lobbing barrages of multiple rounds of artillery into Homs, why is Obama all but numbingly silent in-between his own barrages of multiple rounds of 18-hole golf? The reason: the US President Obama has artfully and silently pivoted US Middle East Policy from a Pro-Saudi, Anti-Iran paradigm to a Pro-Iran, Anti-Saudi imperative. Crazy you say? The Dubai Police Chief Dahi Khalfan Tamim, attending at a recent Gulf security conference with US diplomats, undiplomatically for over 18 minutes calmly stated, in essence:
1)US Policy is the Number One threat to the Gulf States;
2)America has realized the dreams of Iran in Iraq;
3)the US has adopted the path and ideology of Khomeini; and
4)the US is no longer an ally of the Gulf States.
http://www.thememriblog.org/blog_personal/en/41653.htm

To frame the instant question with a sharper point:Why did President Obama, in his 2009 Cairo Speech, pro-actively incite and reflexively, over Saudi Arabia’s infinite anger, support the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak, who was the US’ stalwart Sunni American ally for over 30 years and who acted as the sole-substantial Sunni Arab counterweight to Iran? How come the Nobel Prize-winning Obama unflinchingly allows Assad, a Shiite/Alawite, confirmed state-sponsor of terror, funneler of IEDs in Iraq which murdered thousands of US soldiers, and a stalwart ally of Shiite Iran, to cold-bloodedly massacre what is now over ten thousand unarmed Sunni Muslims? And why did President Obama anoint the Shiite Al Maliki, a known-Iranian stooge, as the omnipotent new-Shiite Saddam of Iraq, sideline the Iraqi Sunnis, and compound the decidedly pro-Shiite tilt by tacitly handing the keys of Iraq over to Iran leaving the Sunni Gulf states to fend for themselves against the a combined Iraq/Iran Shi'ite colossus from the North and East? Why does Obama constantly refer to the ragtag, disjointed, barely-existing Sunni al Qaeda as the greatest threat to the US" when the Shiite Iran and its Hizbullah and Iraqi based proxies have killed many times more US soldiers and US civilians in the past 20 years than al Qaeda has, - and Iran is nearing the acquisition of nuclear bomb and constantly claiming Israel is a cancerous tumor that needs to be cut out of the Middle East? The answer can be found in Obama’ first documented foreign policy speech in 2002 dubbed the Iraq War Speech where Obama unambiguously declared:You want a fight, President Bush? Let’s fight to make sure our so-called allies in the Middle East, the Saudis and the Egyptians, stop oppressing their own people, and suppressing dissent, and tolerating corruption and inequality. . . . - Barack Obama’s Iraq Speech dated Oct. 2, 2002
http://www.asksam.com/ebooks/releases.asp?file=Obama-Speeches.ask&dn=Against%20Going%20to%20War%20with%20Iraq

From Obama’s very first recorded words on US foreign policy, Saudi Arabia, and not Iran, was to Obama, America’s Number one enemy.President Obama’s inimical abhorrence of the House of Saud was further codified in US President Obama’s May 19, 2011 major Foreign Policy speech where he repeatedly explicitly attacked Bahrain, Saudi’s key ally, as well as again clearly targeting the elite Saud Family when he stated:
Prosperity also requires tearing down walls that stand in the way of progress -– the corruption of elites who steal from their people; the red tape that stops an idea from becoming a business; the patronage that distributes wealth based on tribe or sect. – NY Times, 5/19/11 Obama’s Mideast Speech
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/20/world/middleeast/20prexy-text.html?pagewanted=all

Obama, from his 2002 speech on a Chicago street to his 2011 speech at the State Department, sees the House of Saud as the very personification of Obama’s elites who steal from their people,and of the patronage that distributes wealth based on tribe or sect.But Obama’s one act which symbolically crystallizes the essence of what has been, is, and will be the Obama Doctrine is Obama’s very first act as US President. Obama’s first act was he formally and publically returned the bust of Winston Churchill to Great Britain that had long adorned the Bush Oval Office. Obama viscerally rejected Churchill’s White House presence because it was Winston Churchill and his Lawrence of Arabia generation of British foreign establishment that, in effect, had divided and conquered the Muslim Ummah, and empowered the balkanized Sunni elite kingdoms at the expense of the Shi’ites and the Ottoman Empire. While empowering the local Sunni Kingdoms, Churchill disempowered a possible unified Muslim Caliphate, and the Shi’ites.At core, to Obama, Lawrence of Arabia wasn’t a heroic liberator of Arabia, but a villainous enslaver of the Ummah. To Obama, the Churchill’s very Middle East borders themselves are colonial vestiges which divide and enshackle the Muslim Ummah and prevent it from achieving its true greatness and superpower status on a par with the EU, the US, China, and Russia.

Consequently, Obama, from day one of his US Presidency, has been the first anti-Winston Churchill US President. The Obama Doctrine is Whatever Churchill did, Obama would, and will, undo.Churchill empowered the Sunnis, Obama will dispossess the Sunnis. Churchill created Israel, Obama will dismember Israel. Within this tightly focused foreign policy imperative, Obama sees the total empowerment of Iran as the quickest and surest route to obliterate the shackles of the Churchill’s vestigial enslaving pro-Sunni elite localized fiefdoms that practically prevent the unification of the Muslim Global Ummah.As a consequence, of the Obama Doctrine, Obama’s Iranian Nuclear policy can be summed up as full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.As a result, Obama’s overall Iranian political empowerment policy in Iraq and Afghanistan and Lebanon isn’t weakness, naivete, or vacillation,but Obama’s central overarching, immutable goal. Obama plays Turkey like the useful idiot sick man it still is. Yes, common Iranians are paying a lot more for bread. Yes, the Iranian Rial is all but worthless. But by all accounts, the sanctions have only sharpened and accelerated Iran’s timeline to build an atomic bomb, and stopped any attempt to militarily stop Iran’s nuclear program. Iran understands Obama’s need to false flag Foggy Bottom and the Pentagon into believing Obama’s Justice Department’s sanctions are doing something. Otherwise, Obama’s Pro-Iran policy would be impossible to hide.

With the Obama Doctrine, Obama’s entire foreign policy makes sense: It explains why Obama toppled Egypt, Saudi Arabia’s key Sunni ally. In a heartbeat, Obama rendered Egypt permanently paralyzed to assist the Saudis against Iran. As a result, Obama made the Saudis feel warm and fuzzy after the Mubarak betrayal by “selling” them 50 gazillion dollars of US weapons - that will be delivered a decade after Iran gets and uses its nukes, and successfully attacks Saudi Arabia’s Eastern/Persian Gulf oil fields that hold 95% of Saudi’s oil. In accordance with this doctrine, Obama obliterated the Sunni Qaddafi with hundreds of million dollar Tomahawk missiles, deleting the precious cache of Tomahawks (for possible use against Iran) where there was a truly heavily armed Libyan opposition who could fight for themselves and instead left an absolute Islamist maelstrom wrapped in chaos enveloped in bedlam and mayhem. As a result, Obama has mutely watched well over ten thousand Syrian Sunnis be massacred by Iran’s Shi’ite handmaiden, Assad, and hasn’t even shipped in one 5 kilometer range anti-tank weapon that would easily spay Assad’s rampaging tanks and artillery.Somehow Reagan wasn’t afraid to send the Afghans anti-air stingers down Soviet helicopters when the USSR had 5,000 ICBM nukes locked and loaded at Washington DC, but Obama is petrified to send embattled Sunni Syrian unarmed civilians a single Band-Aid, lest Obama might upset Iran and his ability to close his Iranian Nuclear Grand Bargain just in time for the 2012 elections.And as a final policy puzzle piece, Obama’s noisy objection to an Israeli attack on Iran is, in reality, a deafeningly silent total rejection of Saudi Arabia’s push for America to militarily attack Iran. The Saudis know Iran is infinitely more of a threat to Saudi Arabia than to Israel. Obama has publically amped up the five-alarm fire-fight with Israel to make the Iran issue appear to be an Israel only issue, thereby preemptively embarrassing the Saudis out of even asking for the US to strike. For as long as Obama and his minions are vituperatively publicly attacking Israel about an Israeli attack and even threatening to do a reverse-Liberty and shoot down attacking Israeli planes, the Saudis know they have no hope of even broaching the Attack Iran issue with Obama.

So for Obama it’s a win-win-win, actively attack Israel, blame Israel for destabilizing the Middle East, attack Israel’s American supporters as dual loyalists, and passively pre-reject the Saudis request for an attack on Iran’s facilities before the Saudis even ask for one.What all this means is Obama has quietly turned 50 years of US Foreign policy on its head without even a single congressional hearing. If Obama isn’t sending Band-Aids to Homs, he sure ain’t sending Bunker-busters to Fordo.The Egyptian Pillar of US strategic interests is now yesterday’s dust. The vaunted Saudi Pillar of US Middle East policy since World War I is now a prime US target for destruction. Israel is live bait. Obama’s true foreign policy objective seems to be nothing less than the full nuclear weaponization of Iran. Anything else is a smoke-screen for Obama to look like he’s doing something, but in reality he is doing nothing to stop Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. In conclusion, Obama is actively democratically toppling all U.S. Middle East allies, and soon a nuclear-armed Iran will control 70% of the World's Oil Reserves, charging $500 a barrel for oil.Under the Obama Domino Doctrine, in the not so far future, the House of Saud and all the Gulf monarchies will be the very first elite colonial vestiges which will have to be annihilated by Iran for Iran to unify the Muslim Ummah to achieve its historical and rightful greatness and power. In the longer-term, once Iran has liquidated the House of Saud and acquired its limitless oil wealth, the Iranian Rial and the price of bread for the common Iranian will return to normal, and Iran can the focus on destroying Israel.And in the short-term, Obama and the world will watch Assad commit a holocaust against the unarmed Syrian Sunnis, and, of course, Obama’s golf game will see some improvement.
