yalonThe Jerusalem Post: (Moshe) Ya’alon traveled to the United States to meet with Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and other American officials.

“We have disputes,” Ya’alon acknowledged. “With all the disputes, the United States is Israel’s strategic ally… I can tell you that between the Pentagon and the Israel Defense Forces there is an unbreakable bond.”

Ya’alon also reiterated his view that full-fledged statehood for the Palestinians is out of the question. “You can call it the new Palestinian empire,” Ya’alon said. “We don’t want to govern them, but it is not going to be a regular state for many reasons.”

When asked what he meant by “empire,” Ya’alon sought to clarify. “[Israel will agree to Palestinian] autonomy. It is going to be demilitarized.”

Opinion: Moshe Ya’alon was snubbed last week by Obama/Kerry on his visit to Washington. His affirmation of a bond in Israeli/US relations are wishful thinking … at best.

The ‘unbreakable’ bond was broken on June 4, 2009 in Cairo. The then new US President took to the world stage with the Muslim Brotherhood, parent group of Hamas, al Qaeda and Islamic Jihad, sitting front and center.

The ironclad friendship shattered on May 19, 2011 when President Obama, with a stunned Prime Minister Netanyahu in attendance, said that Israel should return to the 1967 borders, cutting the nation in half, and leaving it virtually indefensible.

Then during the recent Hamas attacks on Israel, the Obama/Kerry team used the words cycle of violence drawing a moral equivalence between Hamas and Israel as aggressors, leaving the US/Israel relationship in shambles.

Ya’alon and the rest of Israel’s leaders should know from their own Biblical history (Exodus 14:10-14) that God always sends a protector for times such as this (Esther 4:14), while the Obama administration should know that America’s blessings (Genesis 12:3) as Israel’s protector are running out.

World Net Daily: “Britain’s official education inspector has informed an independent Christian school that it is out of step with “British values” prescribed by the government and must invite someone from another faith, such as a Muslim imam, to lead assemblies or it risks being closed.

The threat comes amid a series of new school inspections imposed by the government in response to a “Trojan horse” scandal in which several public schools in Birmingham, England, were taken over by Muslim managers who imposed Islamic education standards.

The U.K.’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, known as Ofsted, then established new rules requiring the active promotion of “British values” such as tolerance.”

buriel2Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “When Muslims die, family members don’t turn to a funeral home or crematorium to take care of the body. In Islam, death is handled much differently.

Relatives personally wash the corpses of loved ones from head to toe. Often, several family members participate in this posthumous bathing ritual, known as Ghusl.

Before scrubbing the skin with soap and water, family members press down on the abdomen to excrete fluids still in the body. A mixture of camphor and water is used for a final washing. Then, family members dry off the body and shroud it in white linens.

Again, washing the bodies of the dead in this way is considered a collective duty for Muslims, especially in Muslim nations. Failure to do so is believed to leave the deceased “impure” and jeopardizes the faithful’s ascension into Paradise (unless he died in jihad; then no Ghusl is required).

Before the body is buried, Muslims attending the funeral typically pass a common bowl for use in ablution or washing of the face, feet and hands, compounding the risk of infection.

Though these customs are prescribed by Shariah law.”

Opinion: As Paul Harvey used to say, “Now you know the rest of the story.”
