Abbas' Brother Dies
By Micah Halpern

Friday July 22, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is in Qatar. He went to Qatar from Paris.

Abbas went to Qatar to bury his brother Omar who just died from cancer.

Omar Abbas, also known Abu Loway, died at the age of 76. I have discussed his cancer and his medical care in the past. Abbas' brother received regular cancer treatments at Asuta, a private hospital in Tel Aviv.

Of course they have hospitals in Qatar, world class hospitals. But they are not even close to providing the level of quality of Israel's hospitals. They were not good enough for the brother of the Palestinian president.

Despite all the myths and all the lies, Palestinians get the best medical treatment in the world - in Israeli hospitals.

Arab news outlets never covered the fact that Omar Abbas was treated in an Israeli hospital. It does not fit their narrative. In their narrative all of Israel and all Israelis are evil.

Erdogan:Outside Countries Sponsored Failed Coup
By Micah Halpern

Thursday July 21, 2016 I’ve Been Thinking:

Turkish President Erdogan gave an interview to al Jazeera. In the interview Erdogan said that foreign governments had a hand in the failed coup in Turkey last week.

The Turkish president did not mention any governments by name but he said he knows that this is very clear.

I can go through the list of countries who were happy about the attempted coup and crushed to discover that the coup failed.

These are countries in the Middle East and in Europe and even in the Americas.

It should be very clear that Erdogan knows who his enemies are and who are his friends.

Bibi Send Message to Abbas Via Youtube
By Micah Halpern

Wednesday July 20, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

Prime Minister Netanyahu posted a YouTube video directed at Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

On his video, Netanyahu spoke directly to Abbas saying: "President Abbas, over the past several years, you refused to meet me and sit down and negotiate peace, I hope you'll hear this message."

Netanyahu's message to Abbas was, let's talk and make peace - we owe it to the future. He said the time has come to stop supporting terror and that he needs to put an end to the statements of his underlings who repeatedly make comments supporting terror attacks.

Finally, Netanyahu asked Abbas to stop paying premiums to the families of terrorists. That, according to Netanyahu, only incentivizes terrorism.

Now we wait and see if Abbas responds to the Netanyahu message.

Russian Delivers S-300 Part to Iran
By Micah Halpern

Tuesday July 19, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

Iranian news sources have confirmed that Russia is sending them components of the S-300 missile system and that a significant segment arrived yesterday.

The news report said that the S-300s components will be delivered in their entirety by the end of the year.

The S-300 is a surface-to-air system. It is not the best Russia, has but it will definitely improve Iran's ability to respond to incoming missiles and aircraft.
Israel has voiced their disapproval over the deal, but they have not raised a huge stink - probably because the old S-300 has serious weaknesses and can be gamed. In other words, Israel has a defense against it.

The Russians said that they would slow down the delivery - which they have done. But eventually they must live up to their obligations and contracts with Iran. This agreement is over a decade old.

The most troubling part of the arrival of the S-300 components is that this marks another new stage, a period in which Russia and Iran are engaging in important weapons trade.

Russia has a difficult time saying "no" when it comes to the money and influence side of the weapons market.

Syrian Rebels Fear Loss is Near
By Micah Halpern

Monday July 18, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

Syrian rebels are taking the US to task. They are publicly saying that the US is not calling Russia out on their massive violations.

The Russians are supporting Assad and in the process they are perpetrating war crimes. Basma Kodmani, the spokeswoman for the resistance, has been very vocal about the Russians and the United States. "What we lack here is a serious reaction to Russian behavior on the ground" she said.

Kodmani is a member of the main opposition High Negotiations Committee.

All this comes as the resistance is watching the noose tighten around Aleppo. Assad, his allies and Russia are closing in on the resistance stronghold. There is no doubt that the High Negotiations Committee and all the those fighting against Assad fear that if Aleppo falls to Assad the entire battle to oust Assad will be lost.

That is why Kodmani is making such strong statements and accusations against the US. She needs the United States to act against Russia. She is trying, in her own way, to guilt them into it.

France: 17 Unidentified Victims
By Micah Halpern

Sunday July 17, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

French officials still have not identified 16 of the dead and one of the wounded from the devastating Islamic terror that rocked Nice.

The numbers of dead and wounded are mind blowing. One single person, in a truck, killed 84 men, women and children and wounded 202 more people in a low tech attack using the simplest of weapons. All that was required was a terrorist to drive a truck into a crowd and murder as many holiday revelers as he could until he, himself, was killed.

The number of unidentified victims is a telling statistic.

Most of the 16 unidentified bodies, people with no discernible i.d. on their person, were probably tourists or individuals out on their own to enjoy the evening - and no one has yet to notice that they were in Nice and that they are missing. The unidentified injured victims have wounds that do not allow them to aid in their own identification.

The lives of the 202 injured are forever changed. The lives if families and friends of all the 84 murdered have all been irrevocably altered.

The terrorist successfully struck at the heart of France and the West. For ISIS this is another huge victory. Their web sites claim that this style of attack is an effective tool - a model that should be duplicated throughout the West against the enemies of Islam.

Why Bastille Day
By Micah Halpern

Friday July 15, 2016

I've Been Thinking:

Over 80 dead and hundreds wounded on Bastille Day in Nice, Southern France.

Clearly, an act of terror.

The symbol of the day is so important - it cannot be ignored. The prison, the Bastille, was stormed on July 14, 1789. The prisoners inside the Bastille were freed. That act became the symbol of the French Revolution which, in turn, triggered the birth of the modern state in which individual rights and freedoms are the hallmark of modern society.

Bastille Day is a symbol even more powerful than July 4th. It is the foundation of the revolution that heralded the assumption of all future modern states that every individual is created equal.

For the Islamic terrorist the ideas of equality and freedom are the antithesis of everything they believe in. Every citizen of France understands the deep significance of Bastille Day. They have internalized the knowledge that all the terror that has been targeted at France rises out of what France represents and what it demands.

France demands freedom and equality. France demands that all those who enter their country adhere to the principles of freedom and equality.

That is an idea that extremist Muslims, that Muslim terrorists, cannot abide.
