Woo Hoo! I've Finally Done It! - Aug 20

Well, I've finally done it. All the X-Def posts have now been hyperlinked. There are still some posts that are still not up to snuff, but I will continue to work at it. You will notice that with some posts, the link to the story has either expired or has changed topic. All the CBC and BBC links are still good though. If for whatever reason a link doesn't work properly, please leave a comment with as much information as possible so I can use a substitute. My God, what a time consuming process that was!

As for this post, well it's all about Israel. Like I said, I don't plan it that way, it just sort of happens. Before we delve into that, there is some news that is being made outside the Jewish state like Iraq and the U.K.

If you are looking for information on the various militias in Iraq or how an improvised explosive device (IED) works, you've come to the right place.

Also, there's been an ugly incident in one of Britain's airports as passengers on a plane storm off after seeing two 'Asians' speak Arabic. This story is very telling. You see, it is the job of those who govern to protect the governed from all enemies both foreign and domestic. When that trust breaks down, the frustrated citizens tend to take the law into their own hands. In other words, it's a pathway to anarchy.

If you're a soldier in the Israeli army, be prepared to work. The Israelis just recently completed a commando raid in Bekaa valley and have also arrested the Hamas deputy PM. Please note the civil way the Israelis chose to arrest this man. It speaks volumes, I think.

Meanwhile, many of Israel's enemies are making headlines as well. The Lebanese are making all the right noises as it concerns the fragile cease-fire. The Iranians are stirring the pot with some military exercises while Egypt warns anybody who'll listen about attacking Iran. Whew!

Lastly, two very solid opinion pieces from Jewish World Review.

Jonah Goldberg gives us a history lesson on the ideological links between jihad and Nazism. As well, he notes the extreme level of paranoia that both share concerning the Jews.

It appears some dolt named Richard Cohen (yes, that's a Jewish name) writes in the Washington Post that the founding of Israel was just some big historical mistake. Paul Greenberg (also Jewish) gives Mr. Cohen a piece of his mind.

That's a lot for today. Not bad for a Sunday!
