Coalition jet fighters shot down an Iranian unmanned aerial vehicle on February 25th.

WASHINGTON, March 16, 2009 – Coalition jet fighters shot down an Iranian drone that was hovering over Iraq late last month, Multinational Force Iraq officials confirmed today. The incident occurred Feb. 25, about 60 miles northeast of Baghdad, officials said in a statement. Two coalition aircraft were directed to visually identify the unmanned aerial vehicle after it was detected hovering inside the Iraqi border. The pilots confirmed that it wasn’t a coalition aircraft and that no collateral damage would result from a shoot-down. Coalition air forces tracked the UAV for more than an hour before the pilots engaged it, officials said.

Hamas Hails Obama

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 22, 2009

Khaled Meshaal in Damascus, 18 March 2009
Khaled Meshaal has said the great powers needed Hamas and Obama agrees.

The political leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal, has credited US President Barack Obama with using a “new language” for the Middle East. It appears that capitulation and cowardice are greatly appreciated by America’s enimies.

Mr Meshaal also said that an open capitulation to terrorist demands is in the works at the Obama White House. An official opening to his Palestinian Islamist movement was only “a matter of time”, and it appears to me that a cabinet posting could be one his demands.

Even though the interview was published three days after President Obama called for a “new beginning” in relations, the taint of preconditions hangs over Iran’s response.

Iran and Syria provide financial backing for terrorists in Hamas. And Hamas is the instrument of suppression most favored by the money brokers in D.C..

Mr Obama’s video message to the Iranian was empty and vapid, but Iran’s leaders and people will see the weakness it betrays. As a major break with previous US policy it will be approved by the Marxist Stalinist Media (MSM), that favors world destabilization as a method of “news” production.

Of course following such a display of weakness, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei demanded concrete policy changes from the US.

Hamas’s charter calls for the destruction of Israel and it ensures no peace in the near future with unrealistic demands. The fact that Hamas has pretended to legitimacy through elections has hardened their position. “Our weight in resolving the Palestinian question stems from our roots in society, in the people who have voted for us and who will do so again” Mr Meshaal told a reporter.

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Israel declares ceasefire in Gaza

Posted by Larry Barnes on January 17, 2009

BBC NEWS | Middle East | Israel declares ceasefire in Gaza.

Israel has begun a unilateral ceasefire in Gaza, three weeks after launching a full-scale assault against Hamas.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said Israel had achieved its goals and Hamas – which has been firing rockets at Israel – had been defeated.

But he said troops would remain in Gaza for now. Hamas said it would not accept one Israeli soldier in Gaza.

Nearly 1,200 Palestinians have been killed since the violence began on 27 December. Thirteen Israelis have died.

The US has welcomed the ceasefire – which came into effect at 000GMT – saying it “expects that all parties will cease attacks and hostile actions immediately”.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon expressed relief, saying the ceasefire should be “the first step leading to the full withdrawal of Israeli troops from Gaza”.

‘Goals achieved’

The Israeli prime minister’s announcement came in a televised address following a late-night cabinet meeting.

Israel’s “goals have been achieved, and even more”, Mr Olmert said.

Hamas was badly damaged both militarily and in terms of government infrastructure; rocket factories and dozens of smuggling tunnels had been destroyed, he said.

But the success of the ceasefire depended on Hamas, he said.

Troops would remain in Gaza for the time being and if Hamas held fire, the military would “consider pulling out of Gaza at a time that befits us”.

If militant rocket fire into Israel continued, Israel would respond with force, the Israeli leader added.

A Hamas spokesman, Fawzi Barhum, condemned the move. Hamas could not “accept the presence of a single [Israeli] soldier in Gaza”, he said.

Israel must withdraw completely, lift its economic blockade of Gaza and open border crossings, the spokesman said.

BBC Middle East editor Jeremy Bowen says the question now is whether Hamas decides to lick its wounds and regroup – or whether it gambles on dragging Israel into a war of attrition.

Hamas representatives have been taking part in talks in Cairo, brokered by Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, aimed at reaching a bilateral deal.

Egypt will on Sunday host a summit, attended by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, the UN chief and several EU leaders, aimed at securing a permanent truce.

Minutes before Mr Olmert spoke, a rocket was fired from Gaza, a BBC producer in Gaza said.

‘War crime’

The Israeli announcement came on the 22nd day of violence in Gaza.

HAVE YOUR SAY

If Hamas is not involved then the cease fire is agreed with whom?

Overnight Israel carried out more than 50 air strikes on Gaza, as Hamas rocket fire from the territory continued.

United Nations officials said two children, aged five and seven, were killed when Israeli tank fire hit a UN school where hundreds had taken shelter in the northern town of Beit Lahiya.

Chris Gunness, a spokesman for the UN Relief and Works Agency (Unrwa), said an investigation was needed “to determine whether a war crime has been committed”.

An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, Yigal Palmor, told the BBC that Israel was waiting for more information on what happened.
