Israeli Temple Mount Activist Yehuda Glick Shot in Jerusalem by Arab Assassin (Video)

Israeli Temple Mount activist Yehuda Glick was shot today in Jerusalem by an Arab assassin.
The gunman was an Arab who intentionally targeted Glick.

Haaretz reported:

Prominent U.S.-born right-wing activist Yehuda Glick was seriously wounded in a drive-by shooting Wednesday night outside the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem.

The gunman was an Arab man who intentionally targeted Glick, said MK Moshe Feiglin, who leads the far-right segment of Likud and said he witnessed the shooting.

“The attempted murderer turned to him and confirmed in Hebrew, in a heavy Arabic accent, that it was Yehuda,” Feiglin told reporters. He said Glick was in the middle of loading equipment into his car after attending a conference about the Temple Mount that was held at the Begin Center.

Glick, a spokesman for Israeli groups advocating greater Jewish access to the Temple Mount, was shot by a gunman on a motorcycle who opened fire about an hour after the close of the conference.

Police did not immediately say whether they considered the shooting a terrorist attack, saying they were investigating all possibilities.

Glick, who often led groups of Jews to visit the Temple Mount, founded an organization advocating for Jews to be allowed to pray at the Temple Mount, which would mark a highly charged change to the delicate status quo.

This afternoon Governor Paul LePage (R-ME) issued a statement. The Republican governor says he will work with State health officials to force the quarantine of Kaci Hickox. reported:

Governor Paul R. LePage issued a statement Wednesday morning about a healthcare worker who had been quarantined in New Jersey and is now in Fort Kent still under voluntary quarantine.

“We commend all healthcare workers for their humanitarian work in West Africa and other regions in the world, and we are proud that Americans are always ready to help others,” said Governor LePage. “However, the healthcare worker who is in Fort Kent has been unwilling to follow the protocols set forth by the Maine CDC and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control for medical workers who have been in contact with Ebola patients.”

“We hoped that the healthcare worker would voluntarily comply with these protocols, but this individual has stated publicly she will not abide by the protocols,” Governor LePage said. “We are very concerned about her safety and health and that of the community. We are exploring all of our options for protecting the health and well-being of the healthcare worker, anyone who comes in contact with her, the Fort Kent community and all of Maine. While we certainly respect the rights of one individual, we must be vigilant in protecting 1.3 million Mainers, as well as anyone who visits our great state.”

Upon learning the healthcare worker intends to defy the protocols, the Office of the Governor has been working collaboratively with the State health officials within the Department of Health and Human Services to seek legal authority to enforce the quarantine.

Governor LePage and the Maine CDC have been following the care and movements of the healthcare worker since Monday. The Maine State Police will monitor the residence in Fort Kent where the healthcare worker is staying, for both her protection and the health of the community.

Nurse Kaci Hickox announced on NBC’s Today show Wednesday that she will leave home tomorrow in Maine, despite a 21-day quarantine.

Former US Ambassador: Obama Was Warned About ISIS – Did Nothing (Video)

Former US Ambassador to Iraq James Jeffrey told Greta Van Susteren that Obama was warned about ISIS months ago but did nothing.

Ambassador Jeffrey made the comments after Barack Obama blamed the intelligence community for being caught off guard by the rise of ISIS.
National Review reported:

James Jeffrey, the U.S. ambassador to Iraq from 2010 to 2012, pushed back against President Obama’s claim that the intelligence community was caught off guard by the rise of the Islamic State, claiming the White House knew all about the jihadist group’s destructive potential.

In a PBS Frontline documentary to air this week, the ambassador explained that the administration “not only was warned by everybody back in January, it actually announced it was going to intensify its support against ISIS with the Iraqi armed forces. And it did almost nothing.”

Those armed forces crumbled six months later around the Iraqi city of Mosul, fleeing by the tens of thousands as Islamic State fighters captured the city and abandoned U.S. military equipment. It took two more months after that for the United States to finally intervene, bombing the jihadists as they cornered ethnic minorities and advanced within miles of the Kurdish capital of Erbil.

WAVE ELECTION… Republicans Looking at Largest House Majority Since 1928

House Republicans are looking at their largest majority since 1928 according to recent polling.

The Reflecting Pool located in front of the Lincoln Memorial was built between 1928 and 1930.

Cook Political reported:

With less than a week to go, the momentum is clearly with Republicans, and House Democrats are bracing for the possibility that Election Night could be uglier than they originally thought. The DCCC has been forced to shift more and more resources to playing defense in Democratic-leaning districts, and several seats that looked in good shape a few months ago are now looking more precarious.

Overall, we are adjusting our outlook from a GOP gain of four to ten seats to a GOP gain of six to 12 seats, with slightly larger GOP gains not out of the question. With ten ratings changes today, there are 19 Democratic seats and just seven GOP seats in Toss Up or worse. If Republicans were to pick up 13 seats, they would win their largest majority since 1928, when Herbert Hoover was elected president…

…There are also places where problematic statewide races are reverberating negatively for down-ballot Democrats. Now that GOP nominee Joni Ernst has the momentum in Iowa’s Senate race, both parties view the race for Democratic nominee Bruce Braley’s open IA-01 as a pure Toss Up. “Bruce Braley is almost a bigger drag than President Obama,” said one consultant familiar with polling in the race.

“He is being grilled for more information. This is perhaps the first time, a software engineer has got attracted to a global terror outfit like Islamic State in the recent past,” a senior police official told TOI.

“The arrest is very significant and could open a big door for us to trace more educated youth getting influenced by militants,” the officer said, referring to IS, whose main motive is to establish Caliphate (Islamic State) in vast swathes of the world.

Software engineer Salman, quit his Google India job six months ago. Since then, he had been actively reading ‘Al Isabha’ web propaganda, which is again run by sympathizers of Islamic State , formerly Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and al-Qaida, to target Indian Muslims, sources said.

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Denounces “Chickensh*t” Attack by Obama Official
Once again, the Obama Administration revealed what they really think of Netanyahu.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following comments in response to the attack during a special Knesset session Wednesday.
“Despite the attacks I face, I will continue to protect our country.”

As Prime Minister, I stand firm with regard to Israel’s security. I care about the lives of each and every citizen and each and every soldier. I have been on battlefields many times. I risked my life for this country, and I am not prepared to make concessions that will endanger it. And it must be understood, our supreme interests, first and foremost security and the unity of Jerusalem, are not the top priority of those same anonymous sources that attack us and me personally. I am being attacked only because I am protecting the State of Israel. If I did not protect the State of Israel, if I did not stand up decisively for our national and security interests, they would not attack me. And despite the attacks I face, I will continue to protect our country; I will continue to protect the citizens of Israel.

The terror group reportedly slaughtered the men for their support to the Iraqi government.
FOX News reported on the mass slaughter:

Islamic State group militants lined up 30 men in western Iraq and shot them dead Wednesday, an official and residents said, the latest mass killing carried out by the group since its advance across the country.

The slayings, on a main street in the al-Bakir district in the town of Hit, targeted Sunnis tribal fighters allied with the government and members of the security forces that the extremists captured when they overran the town, the official and the residents said.

The militants first paraded the men through town, shouting through loudspeakers that the captured men were apostates who fought against them, residents said. The extremists then lined up the men and shot them dead with assault rifles, residents said.

Democratic Group La Raza Caught Promoting Illegal Immigrant Voter Fraud

The Democratic group La Raza posted a guide on where illegal aliens can go vote without an ID.

obama la raza

The Daily Caller reported:

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

“Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election,” explained The Washington Post’s Aaron Blake. “Most states still request some form of ID, but don’t require it. Another 20 states don’t require identification. In case you’re wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic) graphic from the Post’s graphics team.”

So who ended up using the Post’s helpful graphic? The country’s foremost pro-amnesty Hispanic immigrant organization.

The Chicago chapter of Asian Americans Advancing Justice tweeted Blake’s article with the message, “Reminder — #Illinois does NOT require #voterID to cast a ballot,” along with the pro-Democrat hashtag #TurnOutForWhat. The tweet was helpfully retweeted by the National Council of La Raza.

If there was an effective opposition party in the US this far left group would actually face consequences for their illegal activity.

TOP JEWISH LEADER Calls on Obama to Apologize for Official’s “Chickensh*t” Slur

Rabbi Marvin Hier, the founder of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, called on Barack Obama to publicly “name and shame” the administration official who called Prime Minister Netanyahu a “chickensh*t” in a recent interview.

The slur could impact the midterm elections.

Algemeiner reported:

Rabbi Marvin Hier, the founder and Dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, has called on President Barack Obama to “name, apologize for, and repudiate” the anonymous official who was quoted, in an Atlantic Magazine article by Jeffrey Goldberg, describing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit.”

In a telephone call with The Algemeiner from his Los Angeles office, an incensed Rabbi Hier declared: “It is rather ironic that a senior American official is prepared to curse his friends, yet when it comes to the mortal enemies of the United States – as the Iranians discovered during the recent nuclear negotiation – praise is heaped on them.”

Goldberg’s piece extensively quoted an anonymous “senior Obama administration official” who showered Netanyahu with invective, saying, “The thing about Bibi is, he’s a chickenshit.” Goldberg then observed: “Over the years, Obama administration officials have described Netanyahu to me as recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery.’ (These are verbatim descriptions; I keep a running list.)”

An Israeli official today said the “chickensh*t” comment was an effort to preempt Netanyahu’s criticism of Obama’s upcoming announcement of a nuclear deal with Iran.
