Nigeria is the #3 supplier of oil to the USA. It is seeing a rise in power and has lucrative oil contacts. It's very important to us.
Israel does not have an embassy in Pakistan. It has offered aid to Pakistan in time of tragedy that has been turned down, but on one occasion said it would accept it through a 3rd party. Pakistan doesn't recognize Israel. One reason is that Israel has helped India. Pakistani head have been known to have visited Israel, however. One amazing thing is that in the 2002 wimbledon Open, Israel's tennis player Amir Hadad was partnered up with Aisam-ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan and they even played in the 3rd round doubles.
Somalia is also after the USA. Fuad Mohamed "Shongole" Qalef, a leader of the Somalian Islamist insurgency, threatened President Obama in a speech today or they would attack the USA unless Obama embraces Islam.
Israel has no bilateral ties with Somalia, but Israel is ready to again recognize Somaliland's independence. Somaliland is a section of Somalia that wants its independence. Israel was the first nation to do so in 1960 when they became independent from Great Britain and is ready to do so again. Somaliland is the only Muslim democracy in the region.

When British officers were defending Israel's claims, Travers felt that they were influenced by Jewish lobbyists. It was obvious that he was motivated by his own antii-Semitic prejudices. Goldstone walked out of the room when Col. Richard Kemp testified that Israel had done everything in their power to protect civilians in Gaza." Mr. President, based on my knowledge and experience, I can say this: During Operation Cast Lead, the Israeli Defence Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare".
The IDF polices its own by holding an investigation. They interviewed 550 leaders in the IDF. Note that this stands for Israel DEFENCE Forces. They are not practicing offenses. Israelis cannot leave the country for fear of being arrested for war crimes as a result of this Goldstone Report.
I can only wish the worst on Travers and Goldstone. I hope both of them lose all their teeth but one, and in that one lone tooth I hope the worst sort of pain. What they have done to Israel is a huge crime. It has given terrorists ammunition to attack Israel. The recent episode that almost happened in Seattle where a Palestinian group tried to pay to have 12 buses carry anti-Israel propaganda ads for a month was obviously propogated by such a declaration as the Goldstone Report of chastisement. Anti-Semites climb out of the woodwork at the slightest provocation.

Family Security Matters' authors have done a lot of investigation.
The Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign is an offshoot of "Coalition to Stop $30 billion to Israel." This started in 2009 and tried to get support from J-Street. On April 8, 2009, they set up 10 billboards around Albuquerque, New Mexico in a 2 month contract. They were quite open in their intentions to slam Israel. The billboards mentioning "killing children" were removed after 3 weeks of the 8 week contract after many complaints. Then again in December 2009 more appeared in Albuquerque but the message was modified. A video was made
Ed Mast was the spokesman for SMAC in Seattle in relation to the Metro bus ad campaign attacking Israel. He is the one who said that their intention was not to inflame but to raise awareness.
This is the man who wrote an article for the Salem News on May 17, 2010 saying that Israel's birth in May 1948 was the Palestinian Catastrophe and went on to write a completely lopsided essay about it that is full of false information. No doubt it's as the Palestinians have been brainwashed by their leaders, and he has bought into this legend as fact.
Awareness in his mind is telling the citizens of Seattle that the US is giving 30 Billion dollars each year to Israel in foreign aid. Awareness is telling these citizens that Israel simply bombed buildings without reason in Gaza with the pictures involved in the ad. The ads are badly distorting the issues involved, and Mr. Mast's story is all one-sided.
He and Susan Barclay, both of ISM from Seattle were in Israel when Rachel Corrie stood in front of a bulldozer operated by an IDF soldier on orders trying to stop him. The problem was that she was standing on a level of ground that prevented the soldier from seeing her, and he accidently hit her. Around her were probably these ISM people and other Palestinians, goading her to stand her ground and prevent the soldier from doing his job. She died as a result and Israel has held a court hearing about this case. My friend, David Berdine, reporter, was there as a witness shortly afterwards and noticed that the observers had offered pictures that were questionable as to the time involved. The light and shading told a different story. Rachel's death was a terrible accident, but no one should stand in front of a soldier in a wartime trying to prevent him from his duty. That is suicide. Her parents are just as guilty for allowing her to go to Israel with the intent of involving herself and putting herself in danger and so were was Rachel's audience of so called friends. Why didn't they grab her away when they saw what was about to happen? Did they just cheer her on? Now Mast tells that Rachel was "murdered" by evil Israeli oppressors.
The main person behind the ad seems to be Mark Eichinger-Wiese. They are claiming non-profit status, a photographer and website designer. He is involved with St. Mark's Cathedral with Brenda Bentz, both church and Bentz being on Mast's Palestine Information Project.
Update: 1:19pm The group is also planning a walking vigil for Monday evening.

Something horrible is happening on December 27th in Seattle, Washington. A group calling itself "The Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign" has paid King County (Seattle) $1,794 to have 12 buses carry ads on the outside of their buses saying..."Israeli War crimes --Your tax dollars at work." This is accompanied with a picture of a group of children looking at a demolished building. The buses running with these ads pasted on their outside facing all viewers is starting on the anniversary of Operation Cast Lead when Israel finally reacted after 6 years of being attacked by rockets and missiles from Gaza. One can't say that Israel wasn't patient. No one came to Israel's aid to talk to these terrorists and stop them from their attacks, and Israel warned the whole world what it was being forced to do. That irks me so that the world remained silent.
Our own American army had very high in command people commend Israel for trying so hard to keep from harming civilians in Gaza, but the Goldstone Report, UN's South African, a man already poisoned towards Israel for starters as is much of South Africa, turned out a very biased report against Israel. Knowing the UN, I was not surprised.
King County is only concerned that this horrible ad isn't about pornography, alcohol, tobacco and as long as it isn't interfering with public safety or insulting specific groups to the point that a riot could be incited, vandalism could occur or public safety could be threatened. They do not care that this ad is like another rocket attack hitting Israel.
I feel it is more than insulting, but knowing Jews and pacifistic Northwesterners, doubt if there will be a riot about it. It is "inflammatory, demonizing and divisive". Ed Mast, spokesman for the group said it's not meant to be an anti-Israel message. Of course he would say that.
King county Metro Transit spokesperson, Linda Thielke, said that some people will be offended but that's not stopping the buses. She mentioned freedom of speech. They can't object just because they offend some people.
I ask, isn't this bus message displayed for all to see attacking and defaming Israel? Isn't it conveying an unjustly and unfavorable impression of Israel? Isn't it being displayed without just cause and exposing Israel to public contempt? This advertisement is libelous.
Portland's TriMet buses have more scruples. They have commented that such ads would not be permitted on our buses because if an ad is political in nature, it must be a statement of fact in order to be placed on the side of city buses in Portland.
War Crimes? That is slanderous. Since when is defending oneself from thousands if not over a million terrorists a war crime?

Allied-media came up with 8 million Muslims that are living in the United States. Arab-Americans make up 26%, South Asians make up 26%, African Americans make up 24%, and all others make up 24%. The population is growing 6% annually. Jews make up about 6 million. This is about the same number of Jews living in Israel.
In a poll on allied-media, 90% of Muslims followed the Koran and the Sunnah strictly. In a Cornell University survey, 47% of Americans believed that the Islamic religion is more likely than others to encourage violence among its believers.
In 1990 the Jews in Oregon are estimated to total about 10,691 or 0.38% of Oregon's population There are about 10 synagogues in Portland. They are a smaller number than the Buddaists who make up 0.5% of Oregon's population. Muslims number 2,842 or 0.1% of the population. Including themselves in the Muslim count are the Ahmadis of Ahmadiyya Islam who are also in Oregon. They differ from other Sunni or Shiite Muslims. The largest group is the Catholics who number 279,650 or 9.84% of the population. They have about 199 churches in Oregon.
An Ahmadiyya Islamist wrote an editorial for the Oregonian saying that Islam was a peaceful religion and denied the accusation about jihad, and that killing wasn't allowed. Being Ahadiyya Islamists have broken from true Shiite and Sunni Islam, he was not speaking the truth, but only about his own group. The Ahadiyya continue to feel they are a part of Islam, but Islam has declared them to be a non-Muslim minority and are barred from law from calling themselves Muslims. They are even told not to call their places of worship "mosques." They have suffered a great deal of discrimination by the very people they are defending. I don't believe that Mohamud ever attended their "mosque." and learned their more peaceful ways.
