WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP)— Hamas is warning that if President Obama visits the Temple Mount it would be a “declaration of war” against the Islamic world.
Israel National News reports the terror group made the threat during a protest march at the religious site following riots on Friday.
Mushir al-Masri, a Hamas spokesman, called for a third intifada if Obama visits the contested religious site in Jerusalem’s Old City between Israelis and Muslims.
Public Security Minister Yitzchak Aharonovich believes the warning will lead to violence flaring up in the region ahead of the president’s visit.
“The Palestinians have not said the final word yet and we expect that there will be attempts to take advantage of the upcoming events, like the visit by Barack Obama, in order to continue the violence,” Aharonovich told Israel National News.
White House officials have said Obama doesn’t plan on visiting the Temple Mount during his trip.
Both Israelis and Muslims have claimed sovereignty over the Temple Mount since Israel liberated the site during the 1967 Six-Day War. Israel left the Waqf in charge of the compound.
Obama met with about 10 leaders of Arab American groups on Monday, encouraging the president to deliver a message of hope to the Palestinian people.
“[T]here are opportunities for him to say things that get into the public discourse about America’s commitment to them, about America’s understanding of their situation,” Jim Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute, told The Associated Press.
Following the meeting, the White House said Obama told the group that his trip was not meant to resolve a specific policy issue, but that it was an opportunity for Obama to demonstrate U.S. commitment to the Palestinian people.

LOL! You learned about love from Jesus? He told you to love the billionaires and corporations that rape this country and get wealthy off the backs of their workers?
He told you to love the politicians who continually attempt to take away the rights of American citizens?
You're off your ever loving rocker. You are a hater. Plain and simple.
Oddly enough; you're just one paycheck away from being homeless, yet you act like you're measly little taxes are paying for some poor persons life of luxury on $26.00 of foodstamps.
Go get a job in standup comedy 'cause everything you say is a joke.

THE PRICE OF LIBERTY IS ETERNAL VIGILENCE;But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your states as well as in the Federal Government.”Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people;OBAMA AND EVERY POLITICIAN DOES THESE THINGS LIE BASED ON SELECTIVE INFORMATION
Then there is the “selective information” lie of pulling factoids out of context, where only a small part of a story is promoted as the key concept creating a completely false impression, often 180 degrees from the real truth. It is based on minimizing the real facts of the story to reduce public awareness of what really happened.

"Fundamentalist Christians" is a much better description than "religious right", given that many are not Conservatives at all. If they were reliable voters, the would be running buses directly from church to the polls, just like the black churches, dragging along everybody in sight.
Fundamentalists have absolutely nothing in common with the Roman Catholic Church except the abortion issue. In all other respects, they detest Roman Catholics. They prefer Black Liberation Protestants over either Catholics or Mormons.
Fundamentalists deserve the bad publicity they receive for taking every word of the Bible literally.

THE “DUALISTIC TWIST” OR NEUTRALIZING LIE
Then there is the dualistic twist, where basic facts are presented in a benign fashion and then a false story which runs counter is stated which neutralizes the small part of the true story first admitted to.
A typical example is when a major mass media talking head announces that the housing starts are way down, but have increased in the last month at a projected rate of a percent or two over last year, which in practical terms means no real improvement because last year was so dismal. A story about a negative fact like the occurrence of high unemployment is allowed, but must be balanced by including a statement such as,“but there have been over 100,000 new jobs since the President funded such and such project so the situation is improving (when a close examination would so this actually shows even more unemployment than claimed and the situation is not improving).
LIES OF OUR GOV WE THE BEST

Oh yes, Michelle Bachman; the one who lived off the government who paid her to take in foster children, and her gay ass husband Marcus probably got a tax incentive to open his pray away the gay clinics. What a couple of jokers those two were, and you, dummy that you are, liked her! She and her family also received a farm subsidy. You're an idiot.

It takes exceptionally talented and self-confident people to run a White House, and there is no shortage of both attributes in the West Wing today. But resounding re-election victories have a way of converting confidence into hubris that no amount of talent can overcome.
This may have been the case with the Obama White House, which declared from the start of his second term that Republicans wouldn’t compromise – not on the president's terms, anyway. Obama and his team declared a “grand bargain” on the nation’s long-term debt impossible and publicly predicted that voters would blame Republicans alone for the imposition of sequestration cuts.
They were wrong. While he remains vastly more popular than Congress, particularly congressional Republicans, the president has seen his approval rating drop to the lowest level in more than a year, with more voters disapproving of his performance than approving, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.
The survey, which reflects other public and private polls, shows that voters are split on the question of who has the best approach to taming budget deficits, with 44 percent citing Congress and just 42 percent preferring Obama.
This was predictable. The White House was warned by Democratic allies in Congress and on K Street that, fair or not, voters ultimately punish presidents for malfeasance in Washington. Even more jarring than Obama's lack of engagement was his public protestations that there was nothing he could do to strike a deal with the GOP.“It made him look weak,” said a Democratic strategist with close ties to the White House.“It made him look – can I used this word?– impotent.”

ALL MAJOR MASS MEDIA NEWS STORIES MUST CONTAIN TALKING POINTS VETTED AND APPROVED BY USG INFORMATION OFFICERS AND ALWAYS CONTAIN A “NEUTRALIZING TWIST”
After 911, under the guise of “national security”, agents of the USG approached all top news editors and informed them that all major news stories would have to be vetted and always contain a “neutralizing twist” at the end of the story to prevent the public from becoming too politically sensitized.
This meant in practical terms that stories which told the raw truth would be too disturbing to the public and result in the masses becoming too motivated to get politically involved in changing things, which would increase societal instability and thus must be mitigated.
USG INFORMATION CONTROL OFFICERS VET AND SUPERVISE ALL MAJOR NEW STORIES AND MAKE SURE THEY CONFORM TO PRE-SET FORMULAS

Obamacare will create the ultimate disaster when some government toad decides to pull the plug and deny treatment. Or order a really late-term abortion for the child born with a serious birth defect.

Note these famous quotations:
“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror.[The people] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.”—Josef Stalin
“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”—Adolf Hitler
“The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don’t ask for their love; only for their fear.”—Heinrich Himmler, Commander of the SS and also controlled the Gestapo
9-We must attack Iraq because they invaded Kuwait as a raw act of imperialistic aggression. It is now well known that Iraq invaded Kuwait because of the slant-drilling by Kuwait into Iraq’s main oilfield and a statement by US Ambassador April Gillespie that if Saddam went after Kuwait, the USG would ignore such, considering it an internal Arab affair and none of the business of the USG. This was all part of a very sophisticated long term deep black covert op.
10-Al Quaeda is behind all the continuing wars and terrorism in the Mideast and we must keep fighting there until they are eradicated. We know that American intel started Al Quaeda (aka el cia duh) as a counterbalance to the Soviets invasion of Afghanistan. Since then the USG and American Intel have continued to arm and use “el cia duh” to do much of its dirty work in the Mideast as needed to keep the Mideast in turmoil.
11-The Taliban are murdering and torturing women and behind a great deal of terrorism against the US Military and we must increase our war efforts in Afghanistan to eradicate them. The USG never gave a damn about human right here, or anywhere else and has only used such phony concerns as a precept for attacking Afghanistan to gain control of the poppy harvest, which was nearly eradicated by the Taliban.
12-We must invade Iraq and go all the way to Baghdad this time because Saddam keeps violating the no fly zone and is acquiring weapons of mass destruction, including yellow cakes and nukes. It is now well know that Saddam never had nukes, destroyed his nuclear development program, de-activated his bio-weapons and nerve agents and never had or tried to acquire “yellow cake”.
13-We are fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq to establish freedom and democracy. This is a huge whopper. It is now well known that the USG is fighting this war on because of the political influence of the Neocons, Aipac and the Israeli Lobby. It has been a surrogate war for Israel and the oil companies.
14-We need Homeland security to keep us safe from all the Arab terrorist cells now present inside America. There is are potential terrorists everywhere in America now and many are vets, returning vets with PSTD, Ron Paul supporters, Christians, tax protesters or dissidents of any kind against the US Government.
15-We need the TSA to prevent frequent hijacking of US passenger aircraft. Without the TSA, there would be numerous hijackings and bombings of American passenger aircraft. The only attempted bombing of US passenger aircraft have been setups by American Intel which failed such as the underwear bomber who was able to get on the flight despite no passport because Intel officers ordered the ticket agents to let him on.
16-We need the Patriot Act and NDAA to protect America from Arab terror cell and domestic terrorists like Patriots and gun-owner extremists, Ron Paul supporters, vets and returning vets and tax protesters. The only ones that these legal unconstitutional abortions protect are the criminals in the USG that are using the false cloak of national security and the law to provide a complete block to their exposure and prosecution. The only real terrorists are in the USG, American Intel and their assets, and those that pull their strings.
