Jerusalem is not a settlement and all areas in which Israel is constructing in the capital will remain a part of Israel under any peace agreement, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Friday.
Speaking ahead of a meeting in Jerusalem with the European Union’s new policy chief Federica Mogherini, Netanyahu said Israel was committed “to maintaining the status quo” in the Temple Mount for all faiths, and accused Muslim leaders of conducting a “campaign of vilification and slander that presents Israel as seeking to undermine the mosque” and to change access policies there, which he stressed was “absolutely” not on the table.
In fact, he accused, it was the Palestinian Authority, Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood that were attempting to change the status quo in which Jews are allowed to visit the compound but not pray in it.
“We’ve watched with growing concern the fact that Islamist parties including the Muslim Brotherhood, including Hamas, including (PA President Mahmoud Abbas), have joined in a campaign of inflammation, calling for any action, including violent action, to stop Jews from exercising their right to merely enter the Mount,” Netanyahu said. “This is an arrangement that has been there for many decades, since the Six Day War.
“We stand by the rights of Jews to go to the Mount. They pray in the Western Wall, but they do have a right to go (to the Temple Mount),” he said. “We stand by the right of Muslims to go to the Mount and pray in the al-Aqsa Mosque. They’ve been doing that for many, many decades and will continue to do that.”
Netanyahu stressed Israel would not accept violence in its capital and would restore calm and order to Jerusalem.
“Jerusalem is a very sensitive issue. We treat it with sensitivity,” he said. “But it’s also our capital and as such it is not a settlement. The neighborhoods in which we are living…and we’ve been building, have been there for close to 50 years…Everybody knows that in any peace arrangement they will remain part of Israel.”
Netanyahu also spoke of the Iranian nuclear threat and warned that allowing the Islamic republic to become a threshold nuclear power “would be a big mistake” adding that this would ultimately destabilize not just the region but the entire world.
Speaking, after Netanyahu, Mogherini said the EU was keen for a “new start” in the Middle East under the new European Commission and sought to “have a major role in supporting a solution.”
She said recent events in Jerusalem were “extremely worrying” and called leaders on both sides to calm tensions in the streets.
Mogherini also spoke against “unilateral steps” in reference to the Palestinian Authority’s stated intention to bypass negotiations and demand a UN-backed timetable for an Israeli withdrawal from the West Bank. The EU would much rather seek a regional solution that would see Israel living in peace with its Arab neighbors and the establishment of a sovereign Palestinian state, she said.

In Rome Muslims Spit On Christians And Scream At Them “A Good Christian Is A Beheaded One!” The Police Then Force The Christians To Leave
By Theodore Shoebat
A rally of conservative Christians in Rome was attacked by both Muslims and Italian police. The Muslims spat at the Christians, and began to scream, “Death to the Pope [Francis]!” And they also held signs that said, “A good Christian is a beheaded Christian!” The police then forced the Christians out and yelled, “Disperse!” The Christians had no choice but to end the rally, while the Muslims continued their rally.
To describe to us this persecution, Shoebat.com interviewed a member of the rally, Tommy Pacinotti, a Christian activist and a P.HD scholar in medieval history. Here is the video:
The United States is openly coordinating international blackmail against Russia, Lower House of Parliament Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said Friday© RIA Novosti. Sergey Guneev
MOSCOW, November 7 (RIA Novosti) - The United States is openly coordinating internationalblackmail against Russia, Sergei Naryshkin, speaker of the State Duma, Russia's lower house of parliament, said Friday.
"Washington has become so brassy that it doesn't even hide the fact that it is openly coordinating blackmail and pressure against the Russian Federation," Naryshkin said during a meeting with the deputy head of Japan's Liberal Democratic Party, Masahiko Komura.
Naryshkin noted that Moscow is deeply disappointed that its Japanese partners have joined the "illegal and counterproductive" economic sanctions against Russia.
"We understand that these steps were made under strong pressure from Washington… These steps are damaging the development of the Russian-Japanese relations," Naryshkin added, calling on Komura to encourage the normalization of relations between the two countries.
According to Naryshkin, years of cooperation between Russia and Japan have proven that they can work together in a constructive manner for the good of both countries.
"We greatly value the results of the Russian-Japanese cooperation and call [on Japan] to get back to the normal business relations. We respect Japan and its diligent people," Naryshkin said.
With the deterioration of the situation in Ukraine, Japan, along with the United States, the European Union and other members of the Group of Seven leading industrialized nations introduced sanctions against Russia over its alleged involvement in the crisis. Japanese sanctions are the softest among G7 nations as Tokyo is seen as unwilling to ruin its relationship with Russia.

I am not asking this with my tongue in my cheek. I am as serious as a judge. As I sit here and write, I am listening to Mr. Obama's press conference. Something is very wrong with this guy. He is either mentally ill or demon possessed. Either choice is a possibility. But something is definitely wrong with him. He seems somehow inhuman.
I’ve lived my entire life in a world of athletic competition. I understand the human emotion that is associated with winning and losing. I grew up with the opening theme of ABC's Wide World of Sports continuously playing in my head. (If I close my eyes I can hear the voice of Jim McKay bouncing around the corners of my brain.)
“Spanning the globe to bring you the constant variety of sports... the thrill of victory... and the agony of defeat... the human drama of athletic competition... This is "ABC's Wide World of Sports!"
The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat brings with it emotions. That is why we watch sports. We love the human drama of athletic competition. That's why we have press conferences after games. We love to hear the emotional reaction to winning and losing.
President Obama is a hollow man. He has no feelings. He feels no emotions. The human drama of competition seems to have no outward effect on him.
Can I be blunt? He got his butt kicked. Every talking head on the tube is pointing the finger at his unpopularity. “The bloom is off of the rose. It is a direct repudiation of his policies. The era of Obama is over.” It is as if everyone knows it but him.
Politics is nothing more than a beauty contest, and Obama has been voted off of the island. But he acts as if he still owns the island. There seems to be no agony in his defeat. It is not normal. His emotions do not line up with reality. He is either sick or he is possessed. I'm not laughing. I am serious.
His party rejected him. The American people rejected him. His fawning media has turned their affections in a different direction, yet he shows no emotion. I watch him on the TV. I watch him in his press conference. I watch his eyes as he responds to the media's questions. I believe he is a sick, dangerous man.
I Googled the word ‘sociopath’. “A person with a psychopathic personality whose behavior is antisocial, often criminal, and who lacks a sense of moral responsibility or social conscience.”
Bingo. That's him. That's the guy living the life of President of the United States.
I went a bit further and Googled “Characteristics of a Sociopath.” Read it for yourself. Permit me to summarize. You recognize his mental illness by these traits.
- An oversized ego.
- Lying and showing manipulative behavior.
- Incapable of showing empathy.
- No lack of shame or remorse.
- Staying eerily calm in dangerous situations.
- Behaving irresponsibly or with extreme impulsivity.
- Having few close friends.
- Being charming ---but only superficially.
- Living by the pleasure principle.
- Showing disregard for societal norms.
- Having intense eyes.
The man is either sick or non-human. He does not react like a normal human being.
Consider this from the article:
“Sociopaths can be very charismatic and friendly -- because they know it will help them get what they want. “They are expert con artists and always have a secret agenda,” Rosenberg said. "People are so amazed when they find that someone is a sociopath because they’re so amazingly effective at blending in. They’re masters of disguise. Their main tool to keep them from being discovered is a creation of an outer personality."
As M.E. Thomas described in a post for Psychology Today: "You would like me if you met me. I have the kind of smile that is common among television show characters and rare in real life, perfect in its sparkly teeth dimensions and ability to express pleasant invitation."
Reading that gives me the willies...how about you?
No emotions. Cold. Calculating. He doesn't even know that he lost. He is unaware that he has been rejected. He acts as if it is business as usual while the entire Democratic Party is wishing for a moving van out in front of the White House.
In my coaching career I lost a lot of games. I know how it feels. I know how it makes you react. He has destroyed his party. His friends are running for cover. But he acts as if he has just won.
Sociopaths are dangerous. Some famous sociopaths in recent history include Charles Manson, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and John Wayne Gazy.
You laugh at me. You ridicule what I say because I compare him to serial killers. Go ahead. Laugh. He displays all of the characteristics of the above mentioned goons. They were charismatic and likeable.

What kind of man plays golf after a young man's head is chopped off? What kind of man disappears for hours while some of his “employees” are being killed overseas? What kind of man permits a deadly disease to be freely introduced into a society? What kind of man acts as if he won when the whole world watched him lose? What kind of man believes his own lies?
President Obama is either sick or demon possessed. Red flags are everywhere we look.
Will his own party stop him? Will anyone stop him? President Obama is a sick, dangerous man.
I just thought someone needed to point that out.
