Gaza ‘Concentration Camp’
* This is unbearable: Islamic terrorists and representatives of the most oppressive regimes have hijacked the UN-security council. This charade has to end.
France on Wednesday led a walkout of Western envoys from a UN Security Council debate on the Middle East after Libya compared the situation in the besieged Gaza Strip to Nazi “concentration camps,” diplomats said.
One diplomat, speaking on condition of anonymity, said France’s UN Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert took off his earpiece and walked out, followed by his Western colleagues, after his Libyan counterpart Giadalla Ettalhi made the remarks.
Speaking to reporters after the debate, Syria’s UN Ambassador Bashar Jaafari told reporters: “Unfortunately those who complain of being victims of genocide (during World War II) are repeating the same kind of genocide against the Palestinians.”
“The issue for us is to see the Security Council properly involved in finding solutions” to the crisis, in particular “the Israeli persecution of the Palestinians,” he added.
The incident occurred as the 15-member council was trying to agree on a compromise statement that would have highlighted the dire humanitarian situation in Gaza while also contributing positively to efforts to reach an Israeli-Palestinian settlement.
South Africa’s UN Ambassador Dumisani Kumalo, the council chairman this month, told reporters that members “could not agree” on the statement.
In previous months, the council had several times tried and failed to agree on a statement regarding the crippling Israeli siege of Gaza in response to rocket fire from Palestinian militants based in Gaza.
So, does this mean the French are finally developing some gonads? and since when were the Jews in the concentration camps armed? - H/T Nuke from To Inform and Inflame

Bishop Nazir Ali
MUSLIMS were accused of being “in denial” by the senior Christian bishop accused of inflaming anti-Islamic feeling by declaring extremists have made parts of Britain “no go areas” for non-Muslims.
Bishop of Rochester, Dr Michael Nazir Ali, defended himself against a barrage of criticism at an inter-faith meeting at Ilford Islamic Centre on Friday.
Organised by the East London Three Faiths Forum, about 200 people packed into the Albert Road, Ilford, centre.
One Muslim man said after the “no go” comments hit the news his family was targeted.
He said: “Surely you must have known there would be this tremendous backlash, our windows broken, our sisters and wives spat at?”
Assistant imam of the South Woodford Muslim Community Centre and Mosque, Abdulrahman Tejan Bangura, fumed: “How many times do the wider community need to be educated about the fact that extremism is un-Islamic? Anyone that’s practising extremism is not a Muslim.”
* How many times have we heard BS like this before?
Dr Nazir Ali said both Christians and Muslims needed to stop being defensive in order to move forward.
He said: “The fact of the matter is that extremists who call themselves Islamic extremists, whether they should attach themselves to that name or not is not for me to judge, have made it so difficult for Christian workers in particular places even to live.
“Christian clergy have been prevented from distributing literature in people’s homes, Christian workers have been attacked or intimidated.
“I think the Muslim community and wider community both, need to attend to this situation and address it, rather than being in denial.”
Centre spokesman Mohammed Azam said an “unfortunate understanding of Islam” had sprouted because some mosques were teaching Arabic “by rote” and without a true understanding of the Koran. He added: “There is extremism and we’d be foolish not to recognise that.”

Watch the video and listen for yourself.
Audio: "We like Mr. Obama, and we hope that he will win the elections," Ahmed Yousuf, Hamas' top political adviser in the Gaza Strip, said.
This is abhorrent! Last I checked Hamas is on the international terrorist organizations list. Hamas is not only attacking Israel, but also expanding far beyond the West Bank and the Gaza Strip with their terror.
I wonder if Obama will take a trip down to visit Yousuf and his Hamas mullahs like Carter is doing now. In that case I would suggest he goes to Sderot then. Hamas destroyed that Israeli town, but then again we never saw that in the media. Thousands were killed.
