states he is working on it, and has taken weapons from small pockets of his Arab population in a half-hearted show of compliance. Besides, do we really think he hasrepparttar power to now ensure weapons stay out ofrepparttar 149705 hands ofrepparttar 149706 few he has already supposedly disarmed? And, if he is able to disarmrepparttar 149707 few, why has he not taken steps to disarm them all? Why is he dragging his feet? The truth is, Abbas cannot, and will not, go against an ideology far more vast thanrepparttar 149708 his own local jurisdiction. Abbas has not fulfilled even one demand, yet he insisted, oddly withrepparttar 149709 backing ofrepparttar 149710 Bush Administration, that Israel follow through on releasing 900 Palestinian prisoners, most of whom were incarcerated because of terrorist activity against Israel. Then Abbas offered positions withinrepparttar 149711 Palestinian security forces to most of those released. Oh, and these have been provided with small arms by Israel, to "strengthen"repparttar 149712 Palestinians! Haverepparttar 149713 western nations recognizedrepparttar 149714 fallacy and danger? Frightening!! These are avowed murderers, or would-be shahids, many of whom already have blood on their hands, or were intercepted on a mission to blow-up Israelis along with themselves, or were harbouring weapons forrepparttar 149715 same purpose. How ‘comforting' to know they are now security personnel! Hamas has indicated, only two days ago, they will not disarm, but as soon asrepparttar 149716 Disengagement from Gaza byrepparttar 149717 Israelis takes place, will step-up their attacks in order to secure Jerusalem andrepparttar 149718 West Bank forrepparttar 149719 Palestinians. Abbas also has uppedrepparttar 149720 demand of more land, by insisting another community close to Ashkelon, which was not scheduled for withdrawal, be placed under Palestinian jurisdiction. Where, and when will it stop? The "hand-writing is onrepparttar 149721 wall." Those inrepparttar 149722 anti-disengagement camp are not simply trying to put a halt torepparttar 149723 withdrawal by standing up for a few thousand Israelis who will be uprooted from their homes and lives. They recognizerepparttar 149724 fact thatrepparttar 149725 situation is much more complex than that! The voices being raised against Israeli disengagement are, like Daniel, interpretingrepparttar 149726 "handwriting!" But, is anyone willing to recognizerepparttar 149727 warnings? If we do not heed, likerepparttar 149728 Babylonian Empire, whose corrupt, hedonistic King failed to takerepparttar 149729 interpretation seriously,repparttar 149730 Western world will fall intorepparttar 149731 hands ofrepparttar 149732 enemy, even while we carry on with our own indulgent "party." Retreat inrepparttar 149733 wake of terrorism is not wise! President Bush stated so, and now Prime Minister Tony Blair, and all those attendingrepparttar 149734 G-8 Summit stand in agreement. So, why is Israel being coerced into retreat from Gaza, which according torepparttar 149735 invitation of Abbas, is to become a headquarters for terrorist organizations oncerepparttar 149736 withdrawal is complete? If we desire to winrepparttar 149737 war against terror, we had better be consistent! Abbas is meeting withrepparttar 149738 leaders of several terrorist organizations this week in Syria, to discuss strategy. His role is to hoodwinkrepparttar 149739 West into believing he is desiring peace. He is for peace, for sure, but under his well-defined ideologic definition, not our's! The Palestinian State is only one step inrepparttar 149740 strategy, and his role is to make sure it comes into being, while weakening Israel and deceivingrepparttar 149741 West. It is high time we woke-up and smelledrepparttar 149742 coffee! If we don't, more 9/11's, and Madrid and London-type attacks, are inevitable!

Edward Abington: political prostitute

It was difficult to deal with Ms. Leech...since she was quite antagonistic, contending that Israel wanted to deport me because "you wanted to blow uprepparttar mosque." When I protested that simply was NOT TRUE, she angrily ordered her assistant, "Go see what he's charged with." He came back and said, "Visa violation." So she KNEWrepparttar 149686 real reason I was in jail was for being a member ofrepparttar 149687 Temple Mount Faithful, but later went along with their LIE about my visa...

Mr. Abington, Jr. falsely accused me of being proud about my imprisonment. I'm not proud of it nor ashamed, but I do believe in makingrepparttar 149688 most out of a bad situation...Why shouldn't I use my horrible experience to underscore and furtherrepparttar 149689 JUST CAUSE ofrepparttar 149690 Temple Mount Faithful? How could anyone fail to understand this?...After all, it'srepparttar 149691 TEMPLE Mount, notrepparttar 149692 mosque mount!

Is it too much for an INNOCENT AMERICAN to expect his government to stand up for him? All I've requested fromrepparttar 149693 beginning is forrepparttar 149694 Consul General to STRONGLY PROTEST my unjust imprisonment and deportation. They know what I say isrepparttar 149695 truth, but because of their hostile views, they're playing deaf, dumb and blind torepparttar 149696 fact that I was a POLITICO-RELIGIOUS PRISONER.

Frankly, they're upset that I refused to go like a lamb to slaughter, but roared like a lion instead - exposing Peres' corruption and their complicity. I will continue to seek justice until it is found...."
