Read the ‘Simple’ and ‘Obvious’ Thing an Israeli Researcher Says Countries Should Do to Stay Safe From Infectious Diseases
In the 2013 film “World War Z,” Israel combats a global zombie infection by instituting a quarantine and erecting a wall to block those who have been infected from entering.
Now, an Israeli researcher who is a leading international expert on Ebola and the hemorrhagic fever virus Marburg has proposed a “simple” and “obvious” measure to contain the spread of Ebola: screening all airline passengers for body temperature, not just those traveling from the countries hit hardest by the outbreak.
Dr. Leslie Lobel of Israel’s Ben-Gurion University has also criticized U.S. policy as “lagging behind.”

The kind of rhetoric coming out of the Obama administration is the stuff of the KKK or al-Qaeda. Take your pick — it’s vicious, antisemitic and supremacist, the most vile demagoguery. Blaming the Jews for this purely Islamic movement exposes Kerry and Barack Obama for what they really are. Jew-haters. - See more at Pamela Geller
Video of Muslims shooting incendiary devices from Al Aqsa Mosque (Elder of Ziyon)
Here is a short video showing the "worshipers" literally shooting small rockets from within the "third holiest place in Islam" showing no Israeli soldiers inside. They cover their faces and use the mosque's pillars for cover after shooting.
In a stunning speech, Erdogan railed against Western “spies” and journalists and seemed to endorse the ISIS plan to redraw the region’s borders.
GAZIANTEP, Turkey — Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan took on the iconic Lawrence of Arabia Monday in a furious anti-Western diatribe. The Turkish president compared the outside meddling in the region now to the role the renowned British army officer played during the Arab Revolt against the Ottomans during World War I. And Western diplomats here say the tirade bears a rather striking resemblance to some of the propaganda that has come out of the so-called Islamic State, widely known by the acronym ISIS or ISIL.
“This is the last time the Arab world had a united Islamic State led by a religious leader: the Ottoman Empire, the caliphate,” Beck began. “The Allies knew the Ottoman Empire could shut down key shipping routes and cripple Britain’s economy, France’s. … They had to neutralize it. So Great Britain sent over an Army officer from Britain, and his name was T.E. Lawrence. There was a movie made about him, a great movie with Peter O’Toole called ‘Lawrence of Arabia.’”
Lawrence was tasked with convincing the Arabs to fight against the Ottoman Empire. After Lawrence promised the Arabs rule over a new united Arab kingdom of greater Syria — which encompassed present day Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and parts of Iraq and Jordan — he succeeded.
“To get to the root of the current Middle East conflict, that is your starting point,” Beck said. “It is at the center of everything that is happening today.”
ISIS militants have raised their flag on a building in the Syrian city of Kobani (a.k.a. Ayn al-Arab or Kobane) on Monday, October 6.
It's a strategic area, right on the border with Turkey, which they have been trying to take for several weeks now.
“Obama abandoned his Kurdish allies at #Kobane. But, wasn’t that expected?”
The Rudaw Kurdish News Service blasted Obama for allowing Kobane to fall.
