Klinghoffer Daughters Recall: The Palestinian Terrorists Killed Our Father to Prove They Had No MercyKlinghoffer Daughters Recall: The Palestinian Terrorists Killed Our Father to Prove They Had No Mercy

“The reason they killed our father was because they wanted the world to know the that they had no mercy,” Isla Klinghoffer told an audience of hundreds at the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan on Thursday, recalling her father’s macabre death 30 years ago at the hands of Palestinian terrorists on a hijacked cruise ship in 1985.
Her tone, although composed, was nevertheless emphatic: her father, Leon Klinghoffer had been destined to become the sole victim aboard the Achille Lauro, which was hijacked by four terrorists from the Palestinian Liberation Front traveling on fake passports. Though their original plan, sisters Isla and Lisa recalled, was to moor the vessel at an Israeli port and detonate the ship, killing and maiming as many Israelis as they possibly could, instead their mission dissolved and they decided to make an example out of just one hapless passenger.
Discovering Klinghoffer, a 69-year-old wheelchair-bound New York Jew who had already survived two strokes in his life, they wheeled his helpless body toward the edge of the ship, shot him in the back of the head, and dumped his body along with the wheelchair into the churning Mediterranean waters below. Fascinatingly, they recalled how their father’s body washed up on Syria’s shore, and the country sent it back to the U.S. for a proper burial.
On Thursday, the Klinghoffer daughters, public health worker Ilsa (57) and local artist Lisa (64), elegantly retold their tale to a full audience of mostly middle-aged and senior individuals, at the Center for Jewish History in New York’s chic Chelsea neighborhood, divulging little-heard details of the excruciating moments when the family, home in New York, discovered that their father, Leon, had been slaughtered and cast away into the seas between Alexandria and Port Said.
Former correspondent Sara Rimer, recalled that the night began as a celebration at the Klinghoffer home in New York. The State Department had yet to reveal the details concerning their father’s death; actually, the true facts were obfuscated to avoid more casualties. But, as the Klinghoffers gathered friends and relatives to celebrate, slowly news broke out, and Rimer was there to witness the grief that unfolded when the truth was revealed that night. It was the most profound she had ever experienced, Rimer explained.
The Times correspondent recalled a hardened Marilyn Klinghoffer, Leon’s wife, conjuring up a message of vaguely cynical personal strength, despite the trying circumstances: “I’m strong… All these situations add up, one after the other, and then you’re old and strong.”
Marilyn, whose character was colorfully portrayed through the memories of her daughter, was also described in a situation where she identified each terrorist for law enforcement. Ilsa rose from her chair and assumed her mother’s role: Pointing toward the audience, she declared “murderer,” dramatically repeating the process four times. Then, to punctuate her disgust with the men who took her husband’s life, Marilyn spit in each of their faces.
Marilyn’s retribution did not end there. A formidable woman, she decided it proper to sue the Palestinian Liberation Organization — though the group’s allegiance with the Palestinian Liberation Front was, at that point, somewhat tenuous itself, as these things go in the capricious political landscape of Middle East terrorism.
“We were petrified,” quipped Isla. “We were terrified,” added her sister, Lisa, recalling their mother’s pronouncement one night in the kitchen.
While Marilyn tragically died just four months later, as Lisa explained, her attempt to put a face on the abstract concept that was (and, really, still is) terrorism, the sisters managed to see out one lawsuit against a Palestinian arms dealer whose weapons ended up in the hands of the very Palestinian terrorists who took their father’s life.
Following the settling of this lawsuit, the Klinghoffer sisters went on to found The Leon and Marilyn Klinghoffer Memorial Foundation of the Anti-Defamation League, whose goal it is to educate law enforcement about terrorism and its victims. The two sisters heaped praise on former longtime national director Abraham Foxman, who was present at the event, and recently resigned from the ADL and joined Israel’s Institute for National Security Studies.
At the time, the Klinghoffer story quickly became a high-profile affair, especially in an era of frequent plane hijackings and mass bombings against U.S. military installations across the Middle East and especially in the eastern Mediterranean.
Marilyn Klinghoffer even met with a touched Ronald and Nancy Reagan, a meeting that was captured in a photograph on display among the trove of Klinghoffer archive material at the Center for Jewish History, which also includes some family pictures of a youthful Marilyn (in a wedding dress) and Leon (in his army uniform), official correspondences with President Reagan and even crude sketches of the terrorists aboard the Achille Lauro, which were long-sequestered by the FBI.
“Once Again, we had a crisis in the Middle East in which American lives were hanging in the balance,” President Ronald Reagan wrote in his diary at the time, according to U.S. historian and Israeli lawmaker Michael Oren in his history on U.S. involvement in the Middle East: Power, Faith and Fantasy.
In fact, once the cruise ship docked in Egypt, the north African nation (which had recently signed a peace deal with Israel) allowed the terrorists safe passage to the PLO headquarters in Tunisia, and the Italians promptly released the ringleader once the plane he traveled on was forced by U.S. military personnel to land in Sicily.Klinghoffer Daughters Recall: The Palestinian Terrorists Killed Our Father to Prove They Had No MercyRead more »Water flow paths from Greenland's subglacial lake revealedFLASHBACK: CIA-paid Libyan Islamists travel to Syria to "help" the revolutionNASA To Put Humans On Mars Within 15 Years"http://rinf.com/alt-news/multimedia/video-nobel-peace-prize-to-tunisian-civil-society-groups-for-democratization-efforts-after-arab-spring/" class="bbc_link" target="_blank">Video: Nobel Peace Prize to Tunisian Civil Society Groups for Democratization Efforts After Arab Spring

Sixteen year old commits suicide after being verbally attacked by school officials for smelling of marijuanaSixteen year old commits suicide after being verbally attacked by school officials for smelling of marijuanaHayden Long, a 16-year-old high school student killed himself this week after he was "verbally attacked" by police and school officials because he showed up to a school dance smelling like marijuana. Soon after Long's death, his friend Hank Sigel, who was also verbally abused and violated by police and school officials that night, wrote an open letter blaming the suicide on the encounter that they had that night.According to Sigel's letter, him, Long, and a few other friends were accused of smoking marijuana before the dance and were told that their whole lives would be ruined as a result.The students all had a lot to lose, all of them being honor students heavily involved in sports. Sigel says that the police and administrators told them they would be charged criminally, fail out of school, lose their driver's licenses, and be suspended from sports. For students who have been trained to believe that their path in school is their entire life, this type of situation could have disastrous results for a child's state of mind.Sixteen year old commits suicide after being verbally attacked by school officials for smelling of marijuana

US military officials report that the USS Theodore Roosevelt was pulled Thursday out of the Gulf, leaving the US Navy for the first time since 2007 with no aircraft carrier in the Middle East. This week, Russian warships twice fired cruise missiles into Syria from the Caspian Sea. DEBKAfile: The Roosevelt carries some 5,000 troops and 65 combat planes. Most of the US air strikes conducted in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan – usually against ISIS - were mounted from its decks. According to the Pentagon, US air strikes will continue to be launched from bases in Turkey. However, our sources report that the US Air Force keeps no more than half a dozen F-16 warplanes at those bases. They are nowhere near filling the gap left by the Roosevelt’s departure.Last US carrier exits Gulf as Russia escalates ME action

JNS.org – A Palestinian terrorist stabbed a 16-year-old Israeli man in Jerusalem on Friday, and within less than an hour another Palestinian stabbed a policeman in Kiryat Arba as the wave of Palestinian terrorist attacks continued to spread throughout Israel.
The 16-year-old Jewish victim in Jerusalem was stabbed in his upper body and was lightly injured. He did not immediately realize he had been stabbed and tried to chase his assailant, who fled, only to be apprehended by police who were combing the area. The victim was taken to Hadassah Hospital for treatment, Israel Hayom reported.
Minutes later, police received word of the second attack, in Kiryat Arba. An Israeli policeman was lightly wounded when his attacker tried to snatch his service weapon, but the terrorist was killed before he could succeed. Later Friday, a female Palestinian terrorist tried to stab a security guard stationed at the entrance to the Afula central bus station. The terrorist was shot and seriously hurt. She was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The ongoing string of Palestinian terrorist attacks also sparked Jewish retaliation on Friday, as a Jewish perpetrator from Dimona stabbed four Arabs, three of them municipal workers in the southern city. Two of the victims were lightly injured and two were moderately-to-seriously hurt in the attack. The attacker, who has a history of drug-related arrests, was apprehended.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the attack, saying, “I categorically condemn any attempt to hurt innocent Arabs….Israel is a state of law and order. We will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law anyone who engages in violence and violates the law, on either side.”
In contrast, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has praised the Palestinian “struggle to defend Al-Aqsa mosque,” rather than condemning Palestinian terrorism.Israeli Police Officer Stabbed in Kiryat Arba, Teen Injured in Similar Attack in Jerusalem

Measure to repeal California's mandatory vaccine law won't be on ballot | 08 Oct 2015 | Proponents of an effort to repeal California's new stricter law requiring mandatory vaccines for school children failed to submit enough signatures [!?!] to qualify a ballot initiative asking voters to repeal the law. County election clerks reported receiving fewer than 234,000 of the 366,000 signatures needed to ask California voters to repeal the law, according to figures provided to the secretary of state's office and posted online Thursday. The new state law struck down the state's personal belief exemption for immunizations, a move that requires nearly all public schoolchildren to be vaccinated.

Obama Is Using The Threat Of A UN Resolution That Would Divide The Land Of Israel To Blackmail NetanBarack Obama has sunk to a new low. He is using the threat of a UN Security Council resolution that would divide the land of Israel and give full UN recognition to a Palestinian state to blackmail Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Many had expected France to submit this resolution to the Security Council for a vote in September, but the French made it very clear that they were not going to go ahead unless they had U.S. approval. So that means that all of the power is in Obama' hands, and apparently he is not shy about using it as leverage in order to get what he wants. And apparently one thing that Obama wants is for the Israeli government to keep any new settlement construction from happening in "Palestinian areas" of east Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria.More: http://endoftheamericandream.com/archives/obama-is-using-the-threat-of-a-un-resolution-that-would-divide-the-land-of-israel-to-blackmail-netanyahu http://freebeacon.com/national-security/russia-adds-111-warheads-under-arms-treaty/ Putin’s boost in battle against ISIS: China preparing to ‘team up with Russia in Syria’UN Calls For Unity Govt In Libya To End ConflictBeijing on alert for U.S. Navy ‘incursion’ near artificial islands in South China Sea

Is radiation from nuclear meltdown literally sucking the life out of those growing up nearest do the accident site in Japan?
An alarming new study suggests that Fukushima may be producing cancer clusters in Japanese children, with rates soaring to more than 50 times typical levels of thyroid cancer in the general population.
A new analysis of data from Fukushima suggests children exposed to the March 2011 nuclear accident may be developing thyroid cancer at an elevated rate.
In the past year or so, the Fukushima Health Survey of more than 150,000 children has turned up 25 “suspicious or malignant cases” of thyroid cancer. Thyroid screenings in previous years have also found numerous cases.
The work, led by Toshihide Tsuda of Okayama University, is based on a large public health survey that was set up in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture following the accident. As part of the survey, children who were living near the plant at the time of the accident have been offered regular thyroid screenings.
Thyroid cancer can be caused by radioactive iodine released in a nuclear accident. Children are particularly susceptible because their thyroids are growing rapidly. Thyroid cancer was listed as a possible health risk in a World Health Organization report on Fukushima, though the report stated it would be difficult to link cancer cases to the accident.
Considering the importance of these findings on human health, and in particular the health of the children living closest to the disaster zone, you would think every agency would surface, ready to conduct further studies and come up with ways to mitigate and minimize the issues.
But instead, reality is being denied. By ignoring the problem, and pretending it doesn’t exist, liability for wrecking the lives of others can be avoided, long enough eventually for the problem simply to go away.
This has been the TEPCO formula since the beginning of the accident.
Even back in 2011, in the months after Fukushima, scientists were reporting a spike in infant mortality. Natural News reported at the time:
[W]e have very disturbing reports about a 35% spike in infant mortality in Northwest cities since the meltdown in Fukushima.Dr. Janette Sherman and Joseph Mangano wrote:
“U.S. babies are dying at an increased rate. The recent CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report indicates that eight cities in the northwest U.S. (Boise ID, Seattle WA, Portland OR plus the northern California cities of Santa Cruz, Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose and Berkeley) reported the following data on deaths among those younger than one year of age:
“4 weeks ending March 19, 2011: 37 deaths (avg. 9.25 per week)10 weeks ending May 28, 2011: 125 deaths (avg. 12.50 per week)”
“This amounts to an increase of 35% (the total for the entire U.S. rose about 2.3%), and is statistically significant.
Of course, excuses are being made with these latest findings, with officials claiming – as with other phenomenon like autism – that more intensive screening practices are responsible for the higher numbers of thyroid cancer.
It is – apparently – the monitoring that is to blame for the crazy spike in the numbers, not the radiation:
Japanese officials believe the screening process itself may be behind the numbers. Increased vigilance might be turning up thyroid abnormalities that otherwise would have gone undetected.
But the new paper contradicts that view. The increase in cancer is “unlikely to be caused by a screening surge,” the paper says. It claims thyroid cancer rates are highly elevated throughout Fukushima.
A tightly controlled state media state has been actively countering the report, unleashing other experts who are claiming that the study is not reliable, and is making links not supported by the evidence.
Above all, authorities are insistent that the nuclear accident cannot be linked conclusively with cancer in any of the cases..
More of that from the official “nothing to see here” and “everything is fine” departments.
But the truth is, that these children are just the canaries in the coalmine. The truth is much worse than we know… and the toll it will take on human life has only begun to surface.
It is having a profound impact not only on the environment, but on human, animal and sea life.

Considering that these 'localized' events, multiplied many times over, are occurring simultaneously all over the planet, the scale of destruction and impact on people's lives becomes almost unimaginable.No matter the season or 'normal' climate, these days vehicles, homes and people are being washed away in deluges - the world over - on a regular basis. Forget "one month's average rainfall falling within hours" - last month, TWO MONTHS' average rainfall fell within a day and turned parts of southern Japan into inland seas. In the US, Utah experienced its worst ever flash-flooding, and the entire Eastern Seaboard was soaked with up to a foot of rain. This month, we also have clips of deluges in Spain, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Norway, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Sierra Leone, and New Zealand.Violent volcanic eruptions in Japan, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Indonesia foreshadowed a massive 8.3 magnitude earthquake off Chile, which sent a 4.5 meter tsunami crashing into the coast and causing widespread damage. Hailstones the size of footballs fell in Naples, Italy. Brisbane, Australia, was buried in up to 4 inches (8cm) of hail, while a gigantic hole opened up on a nearby beach and swallowed a campsite. The rate of meteor fireball sightings continues to increase; in September there were spectacular sightings over Bangkok and Los Angeles.Wildfires continue burning up much of California, which last month saw its 'third-largest' wildfire in history as whole towns were consumed and tens of thousands of residents were forced to flee. The other major outbreak of wildfires on the planet in September occurred in Indonesia, from where a smoky haze enveloped much of southeast Asia for the second time in three years. 'Slash-and-burn' farming is being blamed, but the fires occur in peatlands that release lots of methane, leaving us wondering if the primary fuel source for these fires is coming up from below.Extreme weather also hit the Middle East, which was engulfed in an 'unprecedented' sandstorm that stretched from Iraq to Cyprus and south to Saudi Arabia. A tragic and incredibly symbolic event occurred in the heart of Islam's 'holy city' on the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, when a powerful and unusual thunderstorm descended on Mecca and winds blew a large construction crane belonging to Bin Laden Construction onto the Grand Mosque. 111 people were killed and hundreds more injured.These were the signs of the times in September 2015...SOTT FOCUS: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - September 2015: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs

The victims included a female Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier. It follows a week of violence which has already seen four Israelis killed.Thursday attack on the IDF soldier took place near Israel's military headquarters in Tel Aviv when a Palestinian approached the woman with a screwdriver and stabbed her in the neck. He then stabbed three others before being chased. He was shot and killed by another soldier while attempting to flee, a police spokeswoman said.More: http://www.sott.net/article/303614-Escalating-violence-6-Israelis-including-IDF-soldier-injured-in-stabbings Dead whale found on Hartlepool beach, UKVW Boss Offers 'Sincere Apology' For Cheating

An Israeli was stabbed in the back Thursday afternoon by a knife-wielding Palestinian terrorist at the Western exit from Kiryat Arba, leading to Hebron, Israeli news sources reported.
The victim, approximately 25 years old, was seriously wounded and evacuated to a hospital in Jerusalem. The terrorist fled the scene, and a manhunt is underway to apprehend him.
The Kiryat Arba attack occurred at 3:50 p.m., less than one hour after a Palestinian terrorist went on a rampage in Tel Aviv, stabbing three people in the neck with a screwdriver. Israel Air Force soldiers driving in the area – apparently on their way to the nearby Kirya Defense Ministry and IDF General Staff base – immediately exited their car and shot the terrorist, killing him on the spot. One of the victims of the attack was a female soldier, whose wounds were categorized as “light.”
The Tel Aviv attack took place two and a half hours after a near-fatal stabbing in Jerusalem, across from Police Headquarters near the French Hill neighborhood. The victim, a 25-year-old yeshiva student, is in critical condition. The terrorist was killed by police.Kiryat Arba Stabbing Follows Jerusalem and Tel Aviv Attacks, Terrorist on the Loose
