Pathologist at Arafat's hospital breaks silence: "Absolutely no way Arafat was poisoned!"

In a report by Anica Pommeray published in the Times of Israel (Nov 13, '12) Dr. Roland Masse, a specialist on radioactivity and professor at Percy military hospital which treated Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, declared that Arafat had been tested for radioactive poisoning, and its symptoms would have been ‘impossible to miss.’.
A leading French doctor who teaches at the Paris hospital where Yasser Arafat died in 2004 has broken the official French medical silence surrounding the case to tell The Times of Israel, based on Arafat’s medical report, that there is “absolutely no way” the Palestinian leader was poisoned. 
Dr. Roland Masse, a member of the prestigious Académie de Médecine who currently teaches radiopathology at Percy Military Training Hospital in the Paris suburb of Clamart, where Arafat was hospitalized two weeks before his death on November 11 eight years ago, spoke to The Times of Israel to scotch the allegations of polonium poisoning two weeks before a group of scientists are set to take samples for testing from Arafat’s body. 
Masse said the symptoms of polonium poisoning would have been “impossible to miss,” noted that Percy had tested Arafat for radiation poisoning, and revealed that the hospital specializes in the related field of radiation detection. “A lethal level of polonium simply cannot go unnoticed,” he said, speaking as workers in Ramallah on Tuesday began the process of preparing Arafat’s grave for exhumation.

Pat Condell says jihadist Hamas, not Israel, is the obstacle to Palestinians' freedom

Lucid cultural analyst, Britain's Pat Condell, shatters the cowed Western delusion that jihadist Palestinian Hamas can be negotiated into providing peace for Gazan Arabs or Israel before they conquer the Jewish state.

As occurred during 2008's Operation Cast Lead, Israel's Operation "Pillar of Defense" to neutralize Hamas' incessant terror rocketing, incites anti-Israel activity on the streets and in the media.  Much of the Hamas provoking Israeli retaliative casualties (and corresponding, western Islamist/anti-Capitalist street protesting) occurs for the purpose of directing the media to vilify Israel and build international pressure against her; and to stimulate public empathy towards the Palestinian Arabs- which generates international aid and political benefits (such as support in the U.N. for Palestinian nationalism- precluding the Oslo obligations for direct negotiations.

Islamist activists groups work hand in hand with sophisticated, far-left activist groups- united in their desire to weaken and assume leadership over capitalist America and Israel. On Thursday eve 15 Nov, an anti-Israel rally was held outside of the new Israeli Consulate location in L.A. by American Muslims for Palestine carrying placards and signs given to them by the far-left ANSWER.  No Israel-advocacy group counter-protested the well-organized (and led chanting) anti-Zionists.  Merely a handful of concerned Jews individually showed-up to counter-protest. 




The anti-Zionist axis is indignant and aggressive- especially as the pro-Israel groups who might come down are reasoning, Jewish-Americans who assume that by declaring that "Israel wants peace" they'll somehow claim the high-ground over ethnic minorities who want to kill them because their fellow colonialist Zionists dispossessed them from their indigenous homeland.  But as this video from Friday's San Francisco Pro-Hamas (meaning anti-Zionist) demonstration shows, perceived weak  counter-protests embolden aggression, such as this anti-Semitic lesbian karate-kicking a 62-year old man in the abdomen.

While the 4-year old, Israeli Leadership Council, with a membership of Israeli-immigrant Americans, has organized cultural and educational events, on Sunday 18 Nov they joined with Jewish-American groups to come out and rally public support for Israel.  And without a great deal of slogan-chanting organization, while many mothers and daughters sang songs of peace, many of the men (and women)- who are I.D.F. military veterans- felt antagonized by the vitriolic Islamist/Marxists whose protest was smaller and weaker.  Some of the Israelis crossed Wilshire Blvd to get better heard by the anti-Zionists. And there were only a few police there (unlike Thursday night) and a scuffle broke out in which an Arab slipped, but police and private security separated the small group.

L.A. pro/anti-Israel rally draws menacing response towards Jews from police 


Do the Israelis and Zionists (several Christians joined the Jewish Americans) have a right to be able to assemble without being intimidated by the militaristic conduct of the police which ensued?  StandWithUs leader, Roz Rothstein told JooTube that the police wanted to disperse the pro-Israel crowd- and asked her to do it from the police car megaphone. Most complied, though there were a few who lingered in the parking lot of the Federal Building - the same lot in which many of the aggressive Islamists & Leftists needed to enter to get their cars out.  The police created a protective circle around them and escorted them to the lot- backed by the rifle wielding riot-squad.


Not that the Muslims really had any reason to fear in the parking lot.  But will the Israeli-immigrants continue to put a little skin in the game?  And how will they influence the tone of representing the Jewish community against anti-Zionist, Jew-hate rallies- which, in war times, can morph into pogroms? 
Proud, Israeli-American young people the police separated the Islamo-Marxists from

StandWithUs co-leader Roz Rothstein reflects on the pro-Israel gathering, the Islamo-Leftist counter-protest, and the  militaristic police response.

Rabbi Parry counters anti-Israel protest at Israeli Consulate in L.A. almost singlehandedly

Outside the Israeli Consulate in L.A Thurs eve 15 Nov, Islamist & far-leftist anti-Zionist groups (led by American Muslims for Palestine) stage a vitriolic protest to Israel's attempt to stop incessant Palestinian terrorist rocketing. 

The protest (which drew reporters from all local TV stations) was counter-rallied by not one, single, pro-Israel organization in Israel's defense. Rabbi Moshe Parry, an unemployed teacher, stepped-up to challenge the protestors and provide a Zionist perspective to the media. 




But one of the the Muslim protestors we interviewed, Gazan-born, Ziad el-Alami, reveals an objective which goes far beyond the immediate- their goal is to conquer the State of Israel. Rabbi Parry declares that Jews will never be safe alongside an irredentist movement in (Gaza and Judea & Samaria) convinced to conquer the Jewish state.

TV series enlightens to the perils of the Islamist-tolerant, Obama Admin to freedom and safety for America, the Middle East, Jews, and Christians

In the DemoCast original documentary series, "Israel Under Obama," a trip through the first term of the pro-Palestinian, soft-on-Iran Obama Administration shows how it imperils Israel, America & the world.   The original documentary series was broadcast over the month leading up to the presidential election- nation-wide on Jewish Life TV (JLTV) and LegacyTV (now also known as The Walk.TV) and 3 episodes are here for you to view.

Episode 1: Despite the campaign pomp & ceremony, the reality of the Islamo-Marxism flourishing under Obama means trouble for democracy in the Middle East. Luminaries include Jon Voight, Michael Medved, John Bolton, Bob Kunst, show and tell the breakdown of Zionist safety and trust by Obama's leftist undermining of Israel's security. (28 min)



In Episode 2 of "Israel under Obama" here (in 3 sequential segments in this window) actor Ed Ames, Canadian Parliamentarian Irwin Cotler, and Investors' Business Daily's Monica Showalter evaluate Obama's handling of Israel's safety vis a vis Palestine and Iran -  and its ramifications.  Also, commentary from Zion Oil and Gas chairman John Brown, Chaim ben Pesach, leader of the Jewish Task Force, Rabbi Moshe Parry, and Eric Jones of Bonhoeffer's Dream defending Israel at an anti-Sharia rally at Dearborn, Michigan's City Hall.



Watch the concluding Episode 3 of  Israel under Obama, "Hearken!  Modern-day prophets caution us to the perils Obama

Episode 3: Jewish & Christian activists have taken steps to alert voters to perils of empowering Obama's philo-Islamist agenda - since the 2008 presidential campaign. Most liberals have shut their eyes. Rabbi Moshe Parry endeavors to open liberal Jewish donors' (and voters') ears at the visit of Pres. Obama to a Hollywood fundraiser. A Hal Lindsey Ministries Christian minister appeals to voters Americans to protect Israel by denying Obama a second, more perilous term.




Former presidential hopeful, Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, condemns the Obama Administration for breaking with Washington's historic relationship with Israel and championing Islamist revolutionaries. The late Andrew Breitbart discussed with DemoCast Obama's hidden personal history holds his pro-Palestinianist/Leftist, anti-Zionist upbringing. He praises conservative Christians for valuing Israel in their voting, more than liberal Jews- dedicated more to social issues.




Rabbi David Algaze, Jon Voight, Ed Ames, Obama's rabbi cousin in the concluding segment of "Israel under Obama." What transformed Barry Soetoro into Barack Hussein Obama? With so much undisclosed about him- except his demonstrated transforming the Middle East into Islamist-dominated societies- how can we risk he and Valerie Jarret won't continue "running interference" for Iran to nuclear weaponize - and be used to nuclear-blackmail the world?  Rabbis David Algaze, Rabbi Moshe Parry, Obama's cousin Rabbi Funnye, actors Ed Ames and Jon Voight all espouse their observations about the Obama Administration's ideology and renewing its reign.

"Are American and Israeli Jews out of touch with each other?" Israel Matzav

Are American and Israeli Jews out of touch with each other? by Israel Matzav Wed Nov 7

President Obama's re-election proves once again that no matter how badly a Democrat acts against the Jews' interests, they'll still keep voting for him anyway
With a list of swing states painted blue as the vote count proceeded, Obama’s Democratic victory was clinched with narrow predicted victories in the battleground states of Florida and Ohio, both with significant Jewish populations.
Obama cemented his win by keeping a firm grip on the Democratic base, including Jewish liberals, along with a massive victory among African Americans and a huge win among Latinos.
Jewish Republicans have conducted their largest ever mobilization of activists and of funds, arguing that Obama, now poised to enter his second term in the White House, would maintain an unfriendly attitude toward Israel. The results of this massive Republican effort, according to exit polls conducted on election day, are mixed.
The early data indicates that 70% of Jewish voters chose Barack Obama, a slight decline compared to the 2008 election in which Obama won 74% of the vote according to a compilation of national and local exit polls. (Republicans maintain that Obama’s showing last night among Jewish voters should be compared to his national exit poll outcome in 2008 which was 78%.) Either way, the polls reflect some decline in the support of Jewish voters for the Democrats.
...
Florida, one of three key swing states that determined the election and the prime target of Republican and Democratic Jewish outreach effort, seemed to have been a bit more receptive to the Republican message, with 34% of Jewish voters, according to exit polls, voting Romney. Still, the heavily Jewish populated counties of Broward, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade, voted heavily toward Obama, accounting for his narrow lead in the state.
In contrast, you will recall that last week I reported that American Jews living in Israel voted for Romney over Obama 85-14%. Are American Jews and Israeli Jews out of touch with each other?

I don't believe that American and Israeli Jews are out of touch with each other. I don't have the numbers to prove this yet, but my guess is that the Orthodox Jewish numbers in the US will be very close to those Israeli numbers. That's partly because most American Jews who move to Israel are Orthodox, and partly because American Jews, like their Israeli counterparts, make Israel, rather than abortion rights or gay marriage, their top concern.

What Israel might need to work on is convincing American Jews of the importance of supporting Israel. That may sound surreal 64 years after the Jewish state declared its independence, but as the Holocaust recedes into memory, the younger generation just doesn't see the importance of a Jewish state. And that's partly because many of them have a very weak sense of Jewish identification. They've never been to Israel, and they've probably not had a whole lot of Jewish education.

Alternatively, we can wait around for most of the uncommitted Jews to intermarry and then the remaining Jewish vote will be strongly pro-Israel and, if current trends continue, more Republican. That seems to be what's happening anyway.
