The Deir Yassin massacre took place on April 9, 1948, when around 120 fighters from the Irgun Zevai Leumi and Lohamei Herut Israel Zionist paramilitary groups attacked Deir Yassin near Jerusalem, a Palestinian-Arab village of roughly 600 people. The assault occurred as Jewish militia sought to relieve the blockade of Jerusalem by Palestinian forces during the civil war that preceded the end of British rule in Palestine.

Around 107 villagers were killed during and after the battle for the village, including women and children—some were shot, while others died when hand grenades were thrown into their homes. Several villagers were taken prisoner and may have been killed after being paraded through the streets of West Jerusalem, though accounts vary. Four of the attackers died, with around 35 injured. The killings were condemned by the leadership of the Haganah—the Jewish community's main paramilitary force—and by the area's two chief rabbis. The Jewish Agency for Israel sent Jordan's King Abdullah a letter of apology, which he rebuffed.

The deaths became a pivotal event in the Arab-Israeli conflict for their demographic and military consequences. The narrative was embellished and used by various parties to attack each other—by the Palestinians to besmirch Israel; by the Haganah to play down their own role in the affair; and by the Israeli Left to accuse the Irgun and Lehi of violating the Jewish principle of purity of arms, thus blackening Israel's name around the world. News of the killings sparked terror within the Palestinian community, encouraging them to flee from their towns and villages in the face of Jewish troop advances, and it strengthened the resolve of Arab governments to intervene, which they did five weeks later.

He must have either had a major brain fart or purposely omitted the violence against Israelis by Palestinians.
Carol the only history Obama knew about Israel/ Palestinians was on his Teleprompter!! This was just another apology Tour Lecturing our Allies and Embracing our Enemies!! We could call it the Obama’s’ Fairness Doctrine!!

That's like saying Obama says Hurricane Sandy was a terrible storm and Carol lamenting that he didn't mention Hurrican Katrina.

FYI

"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons." http://bible.cc/1_timothy/4-1.htm

"For false christs and lying prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect." http://bible.cc/matthew/24-24.htm

"Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to stumble! Such things must come, but woe to the person through whom they come!" http://bible.cc/matthew/18-7.htm

The New Age Movement (NAM) professes a broad-minded openness to all religions, but its basic underlying philosophy represents a carefully calculated undermining of Judeo-Christian beliefs with various combinations of gnosticism and occultism.[Gnosticism is an ancient world-view stating that Divine essence is the only true or highest reality, and that the unconscious Self of man is actually this essence. It is through intuitional discovery, "visionary experience or initiation into secret doctrine" (not the plenary revelation of propositional truth in the Bible), that man becomes conscious of this true Self (Encyclopedia Britannica, Vol. 10, 1968, p. 506; New Bible Dictionary, J.D. Douglas, ed., pp. 473-474).] It bears a remarkable resemblance to the apostate world religion that H.G. Wells claimed as his own and predicted would one day take over the world. It also fits the description of "The Plan" for establishing the new world government that is described in various psychic communications from alleged E.T.'s and ascended masters. There is one more connection: the New Age Movement fits the description of the Antichrist's religion -- a rejection of the Judeo-Christian GOD and the declaration that Self is GOD.(Source: The Seduction of Christianity.)

The New Age Movement is a modern revival of very ancient, divergent, religious traditions and practices. The actual original root is squarely centered in Genesis 3:1-5 http://niv.scripturetext.com/genesis/3-1.htm , and reverberates throughout the movement's continued historical expressions. In the original lie, Satan questions The Creator's Word, His Authority and Benevolent Rule (v. 1), disputes that death results from disobedience (v. 4), and claims that through the acquisition of secret or Gnostic wisdom man can be enlightened and can be "like GOD" (v. 5).

NASA's Project Blue Beam

The infamous NASA [National Aeronautics and Space Administration] Blue Beam Project has four different steps in order to implement the new age religion with the Antichrist at its head. We must remember that the new age religion is the very foundation for the new world government (NWO), without which religion the dictatorship of the new world order is completely impossible. I'll repeat that: Without a universal belief in the new age religion, the success of the new world order will be impossible! That is why the Blue Beam Project is so important to them, but has been so well hidden until now.

Hard-liners Are Paving the Way for Their Increased Irrelevance

Dan McCarthy observes that “pro-Israel” hard-liners have succeeded in making themselves increasingly irrelevant:

What Adelson and Kristol and their friends in the Senate have done is to make Israel a more partisan issue than it has been hitherto—and what’s worse, the party the ultras have aligned with is the one that looks set to be out of power for some time to come.

One of the stranger aspects of Republican foreign policy arguments for the last four or five years is how eager “pro-Israel” hard-liners in the party have been to narrow the definition of “pro-Israel” so much that almost no one except for them fully qualifies. Thus it has become standard for these hard-liners to assert that Obama’s mostly conventional Israel policy decisions make him the “most hostile” or “worst” president on matters relating to Israel since the latter’s founding, and we have seen Hagel accorded the same treatment in recent months. These are inherently absurd allegations, but the hard-liners and their movement conservative echoes consider them to be obvious, incontrovertible facts. It doesn’t matter whether they “really” believe what they’re saying. They are identifying everyone not committed to maximalist hawkish positions as their bitter enemies, and that means that they are badly outnumbered and getting more so all the time.

The problem for the hard-liners is that their rhetoric depends on constant escalation of what is required to pass the test: today’s acceptable and conventional “pro-Israel” hawk becomes tomorrow’s “anti-Israel” villain, because at some point most conventionally “pro-Israel” people aren’t going to adhere to the hard-liners’ maximalist and dangerous definition of what it is to be “pro-Israel.” Dan writes that the hard-liners have been successful in policing debate inside the GOP, so that there “won’t be any more Hagels in the future,” but the escalating demands that hard-liners make of politicians ensures that there will be. If Hagel’s mostly conventional record on issues relating to Israel can be suddenly erased or ignored because he appealed for an end to conflict in Lebanon and didn’t sign a few pointless letters, then there is almost no one who cannot be subjected to the same treatment when hard-liners choose to attack. Because of this, there are actually fewer incentives for politicians to listen to hard-liners’ demands, which are increasingly so divorced from reality that they become a liability for anyone not in a safe seat. There may eventually be more incentives to adopt more unconventional views on the grounds that the hard-liners will never be satisfied no matter what one does.

Just as Hagel was pilloried for failing to pass ridiculous litmus tests regarding meaningless resolutions and letters, we should expect to see anyone that voted for cloture today attacked in a similarly ridiculous way for their “anti-Israel” vote. Almost three-quarters of the Senate ignored what “pro-Israel” hard-liners wanted today. That is a modestly encouraging sign that hard-liners are gradually losing ground in terms of overall influence even if that influence remains depressingly great inside the GOP.
