Defeated Egyptian judoka refuses to shake hands with Israeli rival

Sore anti-semite loser.

From Daily Mail: Defeated Egyptian judo fighter Islam El Shehaby was loudly booed when he refused to shake hands with his Israeli rival.

Or Sasson, ranked fifth in the world, defeated El Shehaby in the first round with about a minute and half remaining in the bout. At the end of the fight the Egyptian refused to shake Sasson’s hand, in a major breach of judo etiquette.

Judo players typically bow or shake hands at the beginning and end of a match, as a sign of respect in the Japanese martial art. When Sasson extended his hand, El Shehaby backed away, shaking his head. The Israeli then walked off in disgust.

The referee called El Shehaby back to the mat and obliged him to bow, and he gave a quick nod of his head. He refused to comment afterwards.

Prior to the fight, El Shahaby had come under pressure from Islamist-leaning and nationalist voices in Egypt to withdraw entirely.

One angry follower on Twitter said: ‘You will shame Islam. If you lose, you will shame an entire nation and yourself. We don’t want to think what will happen if you lost to an Israeli. Victory will give you nothing. How can you cooperate with a murderous nation?’

Mataz Matar, a TV host in Al-Sharq Islamist-leaning network had also urged him to pull out. He said: ‘My son watch out, don’t be fooled, or fool yourself thinking you will play with the Israeli athlete to defeat him and make Egypt happy. Egypt will cry; Egypt will be sad and you will be seen as a traitor and a normalizer in the eyes of your people.’

Despite the snub, the International Judo Federation had claimed the fact the fight even went ahead was a major sign of progress.

Spokesman Nicolas Messner said: ‘This is already a big improvement that Arabic countries accept to (fight) Israel.’ He added how there was no obligation to shake hands, but to bow is mandatory. He said El Shehaby’s attitude ‘will be reviewed after the games to see if any further action should be taken’.

Sasson later defeated Poland’s Maciej Sarnacki, qualifying for the quarter finals, where he will face Dutch competitor Roy Meyer.

The Fruitless Vine

Grape_Vine02

This message was for Israel in Ezekiel’s day.

Ezekiel 15

The word of the LORD came to me:

“Son of man, how is the wood of a vine better than that of a branch on any of the trees in the forest? Is wood ever taken from it to make anything useful? Do they make pegs from it to hang things on?

And after it is thrown on the fire as fuel and the fire burns both ends and chars the middle, is it then useful for anything?

If it was not useful for anything when it was whole, how much less can it be made into something useful when the fire has burned it and it is charred?

“Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: As I have given the wood of the vine among the trees of the forest as fuel for the fire, so will I treat the people living in Jerusalem.

I will set my face against them. Although they have come out of the fire, the fire will yet consume them. And when I set my face against them, you will know that I am the LORD.

I will make the land desolate because they have been unfaithful, declares the Sovereign LORD.”

Christians have also been grafted into the same vine, and would be wise to heed the warning. Our’s is the responsibility to bear the good fruit of the Spirit: righteousness, peace, goodness, gentleness and kindness. We must avoid setting idols in our hearts or before our eyes that are more important to us than the Lord.

How will we rescue America? If America can be rescued, the best place for me to start is by making sure this American pleases God.

Popular actor Jon Voight cut a video today in support of Benjamin Netanyahu.

In the 63 second video released just two days before the election Voight also tells his Israeli friends, “Barack Obama does not love Israel.”

I love Israel. I want to see Israel survive and not be taken over by the madmen of this world. President Obama does not love Israel. His whole agenda is to control Israel. And this way he can be friends with all of Israel’s enemies. He doesn’t want Bibi Netanyahu to win this upcoming election. America has not been the same since his presidency.”

Actor-director Rob Reiner says Tea Party is just like Hamas

This is why Hollywood socialists (I know, I know, it’s an oxymoron) are so despicable and utterly devoid of credibility.

Please answer the following questions:

  1. Have American TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party groups ever espoused armed resistance?
  2. Has the Tea Party ever not recognize any individual’s or group’s or state’s right to exist?
  3. Have Tea Partiers ever engaged in suicide bombings or rocket attacks?
  4. Has any Tea Party group ever been designated as a terrorist organization by any government, even less by the governments of 9 major countries, including the United States?

Your answers to the above 4 questions should all be “No.”

Tea Party vs. Hamas

The organization to which all 4 questions apply is Hamas — the Islamist Palestinian organization in the Middle East which is using Gaza as a base for attacks on Israel. It was designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department in 1997.

In contrast, the Tea Party is a non-violent grassroots American political movement that emerged in 2010 which advocates fiscal responsibility, limited federal government and a return to the U.S. Constitution.

And yet, actor and director Rob Reiner, best known to America’s TV audiences as All In the Family‘s Meathead, publicly said the Tea Party movement is just like Hamas.

Rob Reiner

Drew Zahn reports for WND that on August 14, 2014, appearing on Larry King’s Russia Today TV program, “Politicking with Larry King,” Reiner — a “liberal” activist for same-sex marriage in California who has campaigned for the likes of Al Gore and Howard Dean — not only compared the Tea Party movement to the terrorist organization Hamas, Reiner said the only way to deal with “extremist” groups such as the Tea Party is to “eliminate” them.

During a discussion about the Gaza Strip, Reiner explained “you can’t negotiate” with “an extreme faction” like Hamas, which has pledged “the destruction of every Jew on the planet.” Instead, he said, you have to make sure a group like that “goes away.”

He likened his solution to dealing with the Tea Party:

“You look at the Congress right now in the United States. You’ve got a strong Tea Party group controlling the whole country, because they have a gridlock, they have a gridlock stranglehold on [Republican House Speaker John] Boehner. Boehner can’t make a move, and so for that reason, nothing gets brought up in the Congress.

So anytime you’re dealing with an extreme group, you cannot negotiate with them, and the way to do it is to eliminate it. With the Tea Party, you have to go through a political thing; you have to wait till 2020 to redistrict, but, uh, that is really tough stuff.”

You can hear and see Reiner for yourself by going to the WND page for the video.

Rockets fired by Hamas at Israel sometimes land in Gaza, killing Palestinian civilians

In the ongoing Israeli-Gaza conflict, some of the much-publicized Palestinian victims turn out to be victims of Hamas’ misfired rockets that were meant for Israel.

Consortium of Defense Analysts

Gaza2A rocket fired by Hamas on July 12, 2014, falls short and crashes into United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) warehouses in Gaza

Hamas’ indiscriminate firing of rockets at population centers in Israel not only endangers Israeli lives, sometimes the rockets land, not on Israeli soil, but in Gaza itself, killing Palestinian civilians.

Israel Defense Forces (IDF) reports, via GlobalSecurity.org, July 31, 2014, that whereas the IDF strikes terrorist targets in Gaza with precision, Hamas’ aim is less than precise. Of the thousands of rockets launched by terrorists at Israel since July 8, more than 280 have landed inside the Gaza Strip. 

Gaza3

Some examples:

  • On the afternoon of July 28, Hamas fired a barrage of four rockets from a densely populated area in Gaza, aiming to kill Israelis. Instead, one hit al-Shifa hospital and another the Shati refugee camp, both inside Gaza. A third was intercepted above Ashdod
