Palestinian facebook Revolution in Israel?

This is disturbing if there's even a scintilla of truth to it. According to reports from the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), hundreds of thousands of anti-semites are meeting on facebook to plan a social network - inspired revolution against the state of Israel on May 15th. Could it be that the formula used successfully in Egypt has been adopted by those who want to see Israel destroyed?

Via WND:
According to an in-depth report by L. Barkan, a research fellow at the Middle East Media Research Institute, which monitors and analyzes media reports throughout the Middle East, the idea being circulated is "for millions of Palestinian refugees to march en masse in return to the original homes of their families in Israel."

The movement's plans call for this to be much more than just a visit, however.

"All the families of Jewish settlers in the Galilee area, including in the areas of Safed, Tiberias, and all the way down to Acre, must proceed to the port of Haifa and board ships back to their countries of origin in Europe," explained one posting that is part of the campaign.

It provided instructions for others to report to other ports – all by the middle of March, a deadline long past.

"The message also warned that anyone trying to take 'archeological artifacts [or anything belonging] to the Palestinian heritage, even a single ball of falafel, will be pursued and arrested by Interpol in his new place of residence,'" the report said.

One of the Facebook pages soliciting participants in what apparently would be an invasion and attempted overthrow of the region's existing government has been removed by the Facebook administration, but not before collecting some 350,000 endorsements from readers. Other pages remain.
The timing of this descent on Israel by those who falsely believe their property has been stolen curiously coincides with another group of people former SEIU Official Stephen Lerner has been trying to organize a mortgage and student loan strike in the first week of May. Here is a partial transcript from a meeting Lerner facilitated recently. Via The Blaze:
And so what we’re looking at is in the first week of May, we get enough people together – we’re starting now – to really have a week of action in New York with the goal of … I don’t want to go into any details because I don’t know which police agents are in the room, but the goal would be that we would roll out in New York the first week in May—
Not only is the timing similar but so are the objectives. Both Lerner's followers and those who want to re-claim Israel for themselves think they are taking back what's rightfully theirs.

Another disturbing twist is the amount of time Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn have been spending in the Middle East lately.

HERE is the report from MEMRI.

Videos: More Left Wing Lies from Planned Parenthood

Live Action, the same group that exposed Planned Parenthood as a creature very similar to ACORN in how it's willing to treat young children, has now uncovered more despicable lies from the pro-abortion, taxpayer-funded entity. The forces with a stake in Planned Parenthood continuing to get taxpayer dollars has resorted to lying in order to get it. Heck, if you can murder without a conscience, what's wrong with lying?

One of the arguments put forward by CEO Cecile Richards is that if Planned Parenthood is defunded, far too many women will go without things like mammograms. Small problem. They don't offer them. Lila Rose's Live Action uncovered this fact by attempting to schedule mammograms at 30 separate PP clinics. In each case, the PP rep on the other end of the phone said it's not in their list of service offerings.

Department of Justice Opens Door for Congressional Investigation into Black Panther Case

The case of voter intimidation courtesy of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP) on election day, 2008 has dogged the Obama administration ever since. One of the reasons given by the Department of Justice as to why it couldn't respond to document requests made by then ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, Rep. Frank Wolf (R) was that there was an ongoing investigation within the DOJ itself.

Specifically, the DOJ pointed to the investigation being done by its internal Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR). That investigation is now over and J. Christian Adams - the voting rights section attorney who retired last year - is calling them on it.

Via Pajamas Media:
DOJ concludes that DOJ did nothing wrong. DOJ used the OPR investigation to avoid providing information to outside investigators on September 9, 2009. Again, on November 16, 2009, the Department of Justice told the Civil Rights Commission that it couldn’t be forthcoming with information until the OPR report was finished. It used a similar tactic to avoid congressional scrutiny.

Now that the OPR report is done, it’s time for the Department to cough up the information to the House Judiciary Committee and to Congressman Frank Wolf. Wolf has also asked for a long list of information which was never provided because of the OPR investigation, or at least that’s what DOJ said was the reason.
Adams goes on to list all of the things that Wolf, now the committee Chairman, should ask for. Read the list HERE.

I find the timing of the OPR investigation results mildly noteworthy because they were released at about the same time Louis Farrakhan and NBPP leader Malik Zulu Shabazz have been railing on Obama over the administration's policy on Libya.

HERE is the story about the DOJ investigation results.

Dead Sea Scrolls Like Discovery?

Five years ago, approximately 70 small books with metal pages bound with metal rings were discovered in Jordan. Since then, they've been the subject of intense study. They apparently are looking more and more authentic as they are examined. The metallic books appear to be about 2000 years old and could provide first hand accounts of early Christians many believe fled to Jordan after the fall of Jerusalem in 70 AD. Some have speculated that the could be the codices described in the Book of Revelation.

Via the Daily Mail:
On pages not much bigger than a credit card, are images, symbols and words that appear to refer to the Messiah and, possibly even, to the Crucifixion and Resurrection.

Adding to the intrigue, many of the books are sealed, prompting academics to speculate they are actually the lost collection of codices mentioned in the Bible’s Book Of Revelation.

The books were discovered five years ago in a cave in a remote part of Jordan to which Christian refugees are known to have fled after the fall of Jerusalem in 70AD. Important documents from the same period have previously been found there.
Initial metallurgical tests indicate that some of the books could date from the first century AD.

This estimate is based on the form of corrosion which has taken place, which experts believe would be impossible to achieve artificially.
If the dating is verified, the books would be among the earliest Christian documents, predating the writings of St Paul.

The prospect that they could contain contemporary accounts of the final years of Jesus’s life has excited scholars – although their enthusiasm is tempered by the fact that experts have previously been fooled by sophisticated fakes.

Video: Van Jones Cheered 9/11/01 Attacks on 9/12/01

This video is from a rally in Oakland one day after the 9/11 attacks. You can fast forward to the 4:38 mark to see Van Jones but it's context is more clearly seen after you view the other speakers leading up to him. The theme of the rally is clearly that the United States deserved what happened; the attacks were the result of our foreign policies all over the world and that America's civilians paid the price for those policies. Clearly, that premise eliminates the possibility that we are hated because we are infidels.

Remember, Van Jones was in the Obama administration and resigned; he was not fired. Not only that but he still serves as a fellow with the Center for American Progress, which continues to have a significant amount of influence on the administration. Valerie Jarrett even championed Jones's work in Oakland generally as one of the reasons he was sought out for the Green Jobs czar position.

It's not a stretch to conclude that Obama shares much of the sentiment expressed at this 9/12/01 rally, the war in Libya notwithstanding, of course.

Obama Tells Congress to Pound Sand over Libya?

Yet another indication of Obama's arrogance here. Remember, according to the Constitution that he allegedly knows so well, the duty of declaring war falls to Congress. With regard to the war in Libya, Congress wasn't even consulted. As the 'kinetic military action' escalates, Congress appears to be intentionally getting snubbed. The administration has apparently informed Congress that the legislative body will not be involved. If the members had any sense, they'd realize how badly they're being disrespected.

President Barack Obama’s foreign policy “A” team — led by Cabinet secretaries Hillary Clinton and Robert Gates — failed to quiet criticism of U.S. military action in Libya Wednesday during a pair of classified briefings on Capitol Hill.

More than anything, the meetings served to underscore how little influence Congress has in shaping the war.

Lawmakers said they weren’t told much by Secretary of State Clinton, Secretary of Defense Gates, Joint Chiefs Chairman Michael Mullen or Director of National Intelligence James Clapper that they couldn’t read in the newspaper or see on television.

They said one dynamic was very clear: The administration doesn’t much care what Congress thinks about the actions it’s taken so far.

Challenged on whether Obama overstepped his constitutional authority in attacking Libya without congressional approval, Clinton told lawmakers that White House lawyers were OK with it and that Obama has no plans to seek an endorsement from Congress, attendees told POLITICO.

And, as if to add insult to injury, news broke during the House briefing that Obama had already signed an order authorizing covert action in support of the rebels. When asked about it after the first briefing, House members were unaware the president had taken that action.

“I have no knowledge of what he signed,” said Maryland Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.
How far does party loyalty go? Congressional Democrats, especially those on committees that are in place to specifically be engaged in situations like this are getting the toilet paper treatment and while some may bristle, all of them should be up in arms over this. Here is a contrast in views from two different Democrat Representatives.
“If they didn’t need congressional authorization here in these circumstances, can you tell me under what circumstances you’d ever need congressional authorization if we’re going into a war? Nobody answered [that] question,” said Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.). “The administration and its lawyers believed they had the authority under the War Powers Act.”

To be sure, the administration has its unabashed supporters in this operation.

“The president has acted appropriately to date,” said Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Calif.). “Don’t underestimate the amount of political opportunism around here on both sides,” he said of the president’s critics.
Nadler disagrees with the administration but the degree to which he's willing to go to the mat over it is in doubt based on those words. Conversely, Cardoza appears perfectly willing to play partisan politics despite the body he belongs to receiving a slap to the face.
