The sources said the Air Force was equipping the Apaches with two new electronic warfare systems developed in the Jewish state.

“They are based on the huge operational experience of the force in using the Apache Longbow in a variety of combat scenarios,” an officer, identified only as Maj. Yonatan, said.

The upgrade has been developed amid the U.S. refusal to modernize Israel’s Apache fleet, employed in attacks on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.

3. Council of Islamic Ideology declares women’s existence anti-Islamic

Islamabad – Sharia Correspondent: The Council of Islamic Ideology (CII) concluded their 192nd meeting on Thursday with the ruling that women are un-Islamic and that their mere existence contradicted Sharia and the will of Allah. As the meeting concluded CII Chairman Maulana Muhammad Khan Shirani noted that women by existing defied the laws of nature, and to protect Islam and the Sharia women should be forced to stop existing as soon as possible. The announcement comes a couple of days after CII’s 191st meeting where they dubbed laws related to minimum marriage age to be un-Islamic.

After declaring women to be un-Islamic, Shirani explained that there were actually two kinds of women – haraam and makrooh. “We can divide all women in the world into two distinct categories: those who are haraam and those who are makrooh. Now the difference between haraam and makrooh is that the former is categorically forbidden while the latter is really really disliked,” Shirani said.

  1. From the article, last para: The CII meeting also advised the government that to protect Islam women’s right to breathe should also be taken away from them. “Whether a woman is allowed to breathe or not be left up to her husband or male guardian, and no woman under any circumstance whatsoever should be allowed to decide whether she can breathe or not,” Shirani said.

    Its a joke. Bu what is interesting is that Pakistanis are publicly poking fun at Islam.

  2. #2 Obama has been refusing to send weapons and munitions to Israel since he entered office, he will continue to do so as long as he remains in the White House.

    #4 Yes they are the only nation that can do this, that doesn’t mean they will, they also know that until Obama manages to destroy our remaining missiles we can turn Russia into radioactive ash. Russia doesn’t want to destroy us they just want to weaken us and remove large segments of the world from our sphere of influence Thanks to Obama they have the ability to do that and to build in the hatred that Obama is causing around the world. Once Obama is gone it will take the decades for the US to once again earn the worlds trust.

    Lena the SEALS were sent in to prevent Libya from from selling the oil and thus breaking the sanctions, not to seize the oil. One tanker of oil wouldn’t be worth the cost of the fallout from this action.

    Having said that Obama didn’t care about the people who were murdered and he really doesn’t care about the sanctions but he is trying to generate headlines that are favorable.
