The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.

    *International activists remain in Gaza hospital threatened by Israeli
    missiles *

    Last night, Israel's army fired five warning missiles at El-Wafa geriatric
    hospital
    in Gaza City, Gaza. International volunteers now staying in the hospital in
    solidarity, have said they, "can hear missiles falling close by".

    "The civilian population of Gaza is being bombed. We will stay with them in
    solidarity until the international community and our governments take
    action to stop Israel's crimes against humanity." States Swedish
    International Solidarity Movement (ISM) activist, Fred Ekblad.

    The volunteers are citizens of USA, Spain, Sweden, Venezuela, France, UK,
    Australia, and New Zealand. The first barrage of missiles hit the fourth
    floor of the hospital at 2:00AM.

    At approximately 19:00 a fifth missile hit the hospital. "Windows and doors
    were blown out, broken glass everywhere, damage to the stairs, there?s a
    big hole at the impact area and the wall is burnt," reports Joe Catron, ISM
    activist, from the U.S.

    At around 20:00 Basman Alashi, executive director of the hospital, received
    an unidentified call from a person with a, ?heavy Israeli accent?, asking
    if there were any injuries, whether there was any one in the top floor, and
    whether they were planning to evacuate the hospital.

    Alashi says the hospital will not be evacuated because there is nowhere to
    evacuate the patients too. "El-Wafa hospital serves the patients that need
    medical attention 24 hours a day. Including patients that can?t move, or
    people who need to be fed by tube. This hospital is the only one in Gaza
    specializing in the rehabilitation of people who need physical and
    occupational therapy. All our patients are over 60 years old, men and
    women. We don?t understand why the Israeli forces have fired five rockets
    at the hospital in the last 24 hours so far. We serve humanity.?"

      Cellphone Video Captures Gaza Civilian Reportedly Shot and Killed by Sniper

      By Olivia Becker
      July 21, 2014 | 9:00 am

      A video emerged Monday that is described as showing a Palestinian man repeatedly shot and ultimately killed by a sniper while he searched for his family in the devastated neighborhood of Shujaiyeh.

      VICE News is on the ground reporting from Gaza and Israel. Watch here.

      The man, wearing a green shirt and black pants, was reportedly shot by a sniper while trying to cross an alleyway in between two buildings. Soon after, he is shot by two additional rounds while on the ground.

      The attack occurred as volunteers and rescue crews were attempting to uncover bodies after a day of the most intense violence and destruction so far in the 14-day operation. The activist organization International Solidarity Movement, which shot and uploaded the video online, described it in a statement:

      The Israeli military just shot a Gazan man trying to reach his family, during an announced ceasefire. He was with a group of municipality workers and international human rights defenders who were attempting to retrieve injured people in the Shujaiya neighborhood…. They shot him, and then continued to fire as he was on the ground. We had no choice but to retreat. We couldn’t reach him due to the artillery fire and then he stopped moving.

      Human rights organizations and international bodies have criticized Israel for the mounting civilian death toll since the military operation began in Gaza two weeks ago. Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said in a statement yesterday, “Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza strip, the majority of the dead and wounded in Gaza are civilians, and medical workers are also coming under fire.”

      MSF also reported instances of the Israeli military shelling or shooting at paramedics and ambulances. The United Nations has documented that the vast majority of those killed in this onslaught have been civilians, including almost 100 children.

              FRENCH REPORT ISIL LEADER MOSSAD AGENT

              Monday, August 4th, 2014
              Simon Elliot, aka Al-Baghdadi, son of xxxish parents, Mossad agent

              In French

              Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, so-called "Caliph," the head of ISIL (Islamic
              State in Iraq and the Levant is, according to sources reputed to
              originate from Edward Snowden, an actor named Elliot Shimon, a Mossad
              trained operative.

              Simon Elliot (Elliot Shimon) aka Al-Baghdadi was born of two xxxish
              parents and is a Mossad agent.

              We offer below three translations that want to assert that the Caliph
              Al-Baghdadi is a full Mossad agent and that he was born xxxish father
              and mother:

              The real name of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is "Simon Elliott."

              The so-called "Elliot" was recruited by the Israeli Mossad and was
              trained in espionage and psychological warfare against Arab and
              Islamic societies.

              This information was attributed to Edward Snowden and published
              by newspapers and other Web sites: the head of the "Islamic State"
              Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, has cooperated with the U.S. Secret Service,
              British and Israel to create an organization capable of attracting
              terrorist extremists from around the world.

              Source: Radio ajyal.com

              Another source corroborates this statement, the site Egy-press:

              With photo support, a Iranian media discovers the true identity of
              the Emir Daash, a trained Zionist agent.

              Iranian intelligence discovered the true and full identity of the
              Emir Daash, which is known under the name Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi; his
              real name is Elliot Shimon. Its role in Mossad secret agent in the
              Zionist espionage. His false name: Ibrahim ibn Awad ibn Ibrahim Al
              Al Badri Arradoui Hoseini.

              The plan: get into the military and civilian heart of the countries
              that are declared as a threat to Israel in order to destroy to
              facilitate thereafter, the takeover by the Zionist state on the entire
              area of the Middle East in order to establish Greater Israel.

              Here are the borders of the Zionist project, the "Greater Israel" or
              "Eretz Israel" for short.

              These facts confirm the first that came out a few days ago, confirming
              that the Caliph Rolex is sent to Israel to sow chaos in neighboring
              countries the Zionist entity. Please note that EIIL announced it
              a few days ago that, to want to now take the "barbarians xxxs",
              a reference to Zionists besiege Gaza.

              Practice! Having devastated the area of Israel, it will now allow the
              Americans and the Israelis to show the fingers as bloody terrorists
              to shoot at faster to defend the Zionist state, while the same
              let them proliferate and act with impunity for over two months
              now. Prepare a project they probably from the famous Arab Spring with
              the destabilization of Iraq, Sudan, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and
              Mali (among others). Clever!

              Spring:

                DUMA, West Bank (AP) — Suspected Jewish assailants set fire to a West Bank home on Friday and burned a sleeping Palestinian toddler to death in an attack that drew Palestinian rage and widespread Israeli condemnation. The attack, which threatens to set off another violent escalation, shines a light on the growing lawlessness of extremist Jewish settlers that Israel is either unable or unwilling to contain.

                The extremists have for years staged attacks against Palestinian property, as well as mosques, churches, dovish Israeli groups and even Israeli military bases. The attacks, known as "price tags" because they exact a price for Israeli steps seen as favorable to the Palestinians, have stirred fear in Palestinians and frustration among critics who say Israel has not done enough to quell the assaults.

                "This is a direct consequence of decades of impunity given by the Israeli government to settler terrorism," said Palestinian official Saeb Erekat. "This is the consequence of a culture of hate funded and incentivized by the Israeli government and the impunity granted by the international community."

                Friday's deadly attack comes as part of a larger trend of Jewish radicalization — one day after an anti-gay ultra-Orthodox extremist stabbed revelers at Jerusalem's Gay Pride Parade and two days after Israeli authorities indicted two young Jewish activists for an arson attack on a famous Holy Land church. All have been strongly condemned across the Israeli political spectrum, though the recent spate of attacks has raised fears that a radicalized and violent ultraconservative fringe is growing from within the country's hard-line national-religious camp.

                Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called the attack a "war crime" and said the Palestinians would present it to the International Criminal Court as part of their case against Israel.

                The extremist attacks, which most recently struck a famous church in northern Israel, have rarely caused fatal injuries, which made Friday's incident, in which 18-month-old Ali Dawabsheh was killed and his parents and 4-year-old brother critically wounded, all the more worrying.

                Witnesses and the Israeli military said that under cover of darkness, the attackers broke the windows of the family's home in Duma, a small village near the West Bank city of Nablus. They lobbed a fire bomb into the sleeping family's bedroom which exploded into a fireball that quickly consumed the home.

                The suspects, who fled the scene, scribbled graffiti on the walls reading "Long live the Messiah," ''revenge" and "price tag," as well as a Jewish star of David. The military said they were searching for the assailants.

                Riham Dawabsheh, the boy's mother, ran out of the house as she was engulfed by flames and a neighbor, Mohammed Ibrahim Dawabsheh, said he covered her in a sheet to try to extinguish the flames. She, as well as her husband Saed and son Ahmad, were taken to an Israeli hospital for treatment, where they remained in critical condition with severe burn wounds.

                Duma residents blamed the incident on Israeli refusal to confront settler violence.

                "We have no protection," said Abdel Haleem Dawabsheh, a teacher from Duma, who like Mohammed Dawabsheh is a member of the same clan as the victims. "Settlers burned mosques, cars, trees, attacked people in our village and in the nearby villages but nothing happened to them."

                Israel says it does its best to track down the assailants and has launched recent drives to crack down on the "price tag" phenomenon. In the case of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes arson in June, it arrested two suspects that belonged to an extremist settler youth group.

                But critics say Israel doesn't enforce the law when it comes to settlers because of the political power that the settlers wield in parliament and because they are still perceived in some circles as Zionist pioneers who are settling the land like the vanguards who established the Jewish state.

                "This policy creates impunity for hate crimes, and encourages assailants to continue, leading to this morning's horrific result," Israeli rights group B'Tselem said in a statement.

                The group said that in the past three years, Israeli civilians set fire to nine Palestinian homes in the West Bank and flung a fire bomb at a Palestinian taxi. It said no one was charged in any of the cases.

                U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said "continued failures to effectively address impunity for repeated acts of settler violence have led to another horrific incident involving the death of an innocent life," his spokesman told reporters. "This must end."

                Israeli leaders rushed to condemn Friday's attack, although B'Tselem said those words were mere rhetoric if the attacks were allowed to continue.

                "I am shocked over this reprehensible and horrific act. This is a terror attack in every respect. The state of Israel takes a strong line against terrorism regardless of who the perpetrators are," said Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

                Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon, said Israel would not allow "Jewish terrorists" to carry out such acts. "We will fight against them firmly and with all means and tools at our disposal," he said. Settler leaders and their representatives in parliament also distanced themselves from the attackers.

                Condemnations also came from abroad, including the European Union, which called for "zero tolerance" for settler violence, while Stephane Dujarric, the spokesman for U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, called for the perpetrators to be "promptly brought to justice." The U.S. State Department urged both sides to "maintain calm and avoid escalating tensions."

                The U.N. Security Council condemned "the vicious terrorist attack," demanded that the perpetrators be brought to justice and encouraged all sides "to work to lower tension, reject violence, avoid all provocations, and seek a path toward peace."

                Israeli opposition leader Issac Herzog said Israel needed to take practical steps including arrest without trial or charge, as is done for Palestinian assailants, in order to stamp out the attacks.

                "We are dealing with Jewish terror that we haven't seen in a long time," he said, at the hospital near Tel Aviv where Riham and Ahmad Dawabsheh were being treated. "This phenomenon must be uprooted."

                Other Israeli officials, including Netanyahu, visited the family at the hospital.

                Herzog compared the attack to the killing last year of 16-year-old Palestinian Mohammed Abu Khdeir, who was burned alive last summer by Jewish extremists in a revenge attack for the kidnapping and murder of three Jewish teens. The violence eventually spiraled into what later became a 50-day war between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza.

                Tensions have been high since last year's war and with no peace negotiations and the Palestinians taking their case to the international court, incidents such as Friday's could easily spark wider unrest.

                Friday's attack forced those simmering tensions to boil over, with about 2,000 Palestinian protesters clashing with Israeli security forces in the West Bank city of Hebron at a previously planned demonstration, the military said. It added that forces fired into the rock-throwing crowd after it did not disperse and "a hit was confirmed," without elaborating - a reference to someone being shot. Israeli forces shot at another Palestinian near the city of Ramallah, after he hurled a fire bomb at them, the military said. Palestinian hospital officials said he was in critical condition after being shot in the chest.

                In Gaza, Palestinian health ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qidra said the Israeli military shot and killed a Gazan man who had approached Israel's security fence. The Israeli military said it did not know the man's condition, but said troops opened fire at the man's legs when he and another man neared the fence.

                The Israeli military deployed troop reinforcements to the West Bank to quell further clashes and Netanyahu also placed a rare call to Abbas to express his outrage and call for calm.

                In the village of Duma, the interior walls of the one-floor home were blackened and still radiated heat as Israeli police surveyed the scene Friday morning. A brown couch was covered in white ash as charred debris lay strewn around the property. A second house nearby, which was empty, was also set on fire.

                Inside the torched home, relatives scraped through the ash and soot to salvage any belongings. They found a partly burnt photograph of the slain child and his bottle, still one-third full of milk.

                "I never imagined that this could happen, that someone could come and burn people alive while they are sleeping," said Hassan Dawabsheh, the slain child's uncle. "I don't know what those people were thinking. What do they have inside their hearts and minds?"
