Desperation time. Looks like there may be a change in the Pali territory. Let's blame Israel ahead of time. With stupidity like this, Israel is light years ahead in negotiations. LMFAO
>"The Israelis have this approach," Erekat claimed, adding, "Before President Arafat was killed with poison, there were voices in Sharon's government that said Arafat was an obstacle who must be removed, and they are doing that again."<
Apparently Saeb is unfamiliar with the dictum "He who smelt it dealt it". If I were Abbas, I wouldn't turn my back on the creep. If I was Erekat, I'd dig out one of my dozens of resignations and make it stick. All the players in the peace negotiations have turned over except him. All the peace negotiations so far have failed...coincidence? Kinda doubt it. Meanwhile, France and Russia (of all people) have signed off on Arafat's natural cause of death. Do the US and Israel really need to sit around a table with this loser?

If your diplomatic mission gets evicted from Prague for "violating Czech and international law", does that make you more or less desirable as a next door neighbor?

What a slimy weasel he turned out to be...I can't believe I'm crossing my fingers for the Islamic cleric living in exile in Philly. At least if he wins there'll be one less Islamist in Pennsylvania.

Islam says Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to our Christian brothers.......

Interfaith outreach in Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas "plot to attack churches"

"Talk about extreme, militant Islamists and the atrocities that they have perpetrated globally might undercut the positive achievements that we Catholics have attained in our inter-religious dialogue with devout Muslims." -- Robert McManus, Roman Catholic Bishop of Worcester, Massachusetts, February 8, 2013

So Egyptian Christians have no friend, no protector, and no spokesman.

"Egypt: Brotherhood, Hamas 'plot to attack churches,'" from the Ma'an News Agency, January 2:

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an)– The Egyptian intelligence said Wednesday that groups affiliated to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas movement plotted to blow up Coptic churches in the North Sinai district during Christmas celebrations on Jan. 7.
Egypt's al-Watan newspaper reported that Egyptian intelligence intercepted communications between “terrorist groups” in Sinai and activists of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

The Sinai groups, according to the report, were given directives to continue with “what they called Jihad” against Egyptian police and army, according to the report.

They were also told to expect weapons and funds in a few days through smuggling tunnels from the Gaza Strip “via three members of the Hamas military wing,” the newspaper report alleged.

The report highlighted that Egyptian security arrested a member of a “terrorist” group in Sinai and he had ciphered letters from which Egyptian experts learned that explosives and 700,000 Egyptian pounds would be sent to the militant groups in Sinai.

The ciphers, according to al-Watan, instructed the “terrorists” to carry out several attacks against churches simultaneously during Christmas celebrations.

Seriously? I don't understand why you guys want to live in an area with neighbors like that. Is it the holy dirt?

Let's look at this logically. No matter how good you try to be, you're always surrounded by badness. How about this: Using the profits from the export side of the Leviathan and Tamar fields to quietly buy up hmmmm...let's say....just for the sake of this discussion...Macedonia. Once you're established there, you can start building settlements in the direction of Istanbul. Who knows? There may come a rebirth of Constantinople and you guys can finally get payback for the Mavi Marmara affair by pushing the Turks back across the Bosphorus strait all the way out of Europe.

You in?

Weird, weird weird.

2014 is but a week old and I have alternately been rooting for an islamist cleric in Philly to win a Turkish election and for FSU (ugh) to win the national championship. So far, FSU has met the challenge.

Congratulations are in order for all the Noles I've insulted over the years...not only did FSU defeat my arch nemesis Auburn but they did it in such an AMAZINGLY entertaining way...what a barn-burner! GO NOLES!

It may be way too early to tell but if this keeps up, 2014 could turn into a very interesting year.

Can you even get Obamacare in federal prison? I'm only asking because the prescription meds to treat fictitious PTSD alone will break some of these guys. The silver lining? No matter where they have to go to jail, their contraception and reproductive health are covered.

Is it possible that garage doors have some type of safety feature that prevents them from going up if there is an extra drag on them? Like if a kid snagged their jacket or something?

I have ice on the door and the motor shuts down almost right away and the light blinks.

I want Al Gore to get his ass over here and fix it. It was colder here than at the South Pole the last couple of nights.

Maybe the weight of the ice has the door off balance and it is tilted.
It has to be the ice. That is the...uh...."independent variable" (?).

Another option. Fill a bucket with warm water and pour it along the bottom of the door. The weather is supposed to get better, but if you don't have to go out, don't, until we get 20's-30's. Miss you. The above mthod I use on my shed lock. It's always works.

The new year just started and its full of "great" news from all the muslim shitholes.
In Turkey the police was investigating the biggest fraud and theft with erDOGen son involved. So what does the great democratic muslim pa
does?? He fires 350 Police officers involved in the case. Islam the wonderful.
We got to an other wonderful moment in muslim assholenes. In Iraq and Syria al-quaida fighting al-quaida and KILLING each other. Now isnt that just wonderful???
Our Foreign Minister suggested that the Israeli arabs should belong to the coming up (maybe) new Palestinian State. Not by moving them or their villages but moving the border so they will be included on the other side of the border. They went ballistic , most of them saying no thanks but who the f..k is this arab dictator called Abbas?? Who the hell needs him. WE WANT to stay in Israel, we are ok here. No way we will move in to that arab shit.
Great start for a new year.

I don't think that's a safety feature...they only try not to crush a kid or pet. I think you have a problem similar to a Minnesota door malfunction, it's fcuken cold and you're stuck to the floor! I will yield to the distinguished gentleman from Connecticut on this matter as it is currently 50 here and I'm unable to duplicate the fault. I do know you can strip the shitty nylon gears inside if you try to muscle your way through.

I've been feeling you lately and wondered why you haven't moved to Colorado yet. You can still freeze your ass off but at least you'll be so high it won't matter. Recreational weed may not fix the garage door but it will prevent rage and despair.
