Good morning and a special ‘howdy ho’ to all at CPAC.

Three Cabinet Ministers Visit Refurbished Joseph’s Tomb.

After having been destroyed by Palestinian Authority vandals, the newly refurbished Joseph’s Tomb structure was dedicated last night in the presence of three Cabinet ministers.

Joseph’s Tomb – once in a field outside Shechem (Nablus), and now surrounded by new, already slum-like homes in the expanding city – became an official Israeli Holy Site under the auspices of the government shortly after its liberation during the 1967 Six Day War. Its status changed, however, in 2001, after the Oslo Accords granted the Palestinian Authority control of the city of Shechem. This did not include Joseph’s Tomb, but the PA created “facts on the ground” by conquering the site. During the battle, wounded IDF soldier Madhat Yusuf was allowed to bleed to death; the Israeli commanders preferred to believe the PA promises that he would be rescued, rather than send in IDF forces directly.

Israel has retained official control over the site, in accordance with the Oslo Accords, though it has been able to exercise it only in coordination with the PA. Visitors to the holy site dwindled over the years; Jews visited only either clandestinely or four times a year in army-organized midnight visits.

Peace lovers full of hope and change.

White House Fudges On Whether It Would Save Israel.

White House Spokesman Robert Gibbs would not pledge to guarantee Israel’s security if its existence is in danger, in a Wednesday press briefing. In reference to recent Middle East turmoil, he was asked: “If Israel is threatened by any of these new governments or Hamas and Hizbullah, if its existence is in danger, would the US come to its assistance?

Gibbs answered: “Regardless of the situation facing any government in the region, our friendship, our partnership and our alliance with Israel is unchanged.”

The man was asked a direct question that had a yes or no answer.

He answered ‘present’.

Israel is on her own.

Nation-wide drill simulates terrorism, public disturbances.

The Israel Police has launched a nation-wide security drill simulating terrorist attacks and large-scale public disturbances. The exercise is aimed at testing ground units’ first responses to various emergency incidents, police said.

Police are drilling their responses in unpopulated areas to prevent disruption to the public, though heavy police traffic and sirens will be apparent in some areas, police added. On Wednesday, outgoing Police Insp.-Gen. David  Cohen said his forces were ready for “any possible scenario in the country” during a tour of the Ashdod police station.

Does ‘any possible scenario in the country’ include a simultaneous attack from all sides by peace lovers and complete abandonment by The US Government ?

I carry a firearm because instant responders beat first responders every time.
Plus, a cop is too heavy and won’t fit in any of my holsters.

Remember: When seconds count, the police are just minutes away.
