Israel, U.S. agree on immigration fast track

Follow j. on   and 

The United States and Israel are set to add Israelis to a fast-track immigration system.

The daily paper Yediot Achronot reported May 17 that U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman have agreed to add Israel to the Global Entry program. The agreement was negotiated during a recent trip by Homeland Security officials to Israel.

For a $100 fee, frequent business travelers undergo a thorough security clearance. Once cleared, they enter the United States through a biometric fingerprint check, skipping passport checks.

According to Yediot, six countries already have joined the program — Britain, Holland, Qatar, Austria, New Zealand and Japan — and 250,000 American citizens have registered. — jta

Another distraction

Debka.com follows the military news in the middle east ... here is a new report:


“How Obama won the war against an Iran war and beat Israel’s military option


Barack Obama is winning his Herculean battle to stave off a strike on Iran’s nuclear sites until he is safely reelected in November.  His policy of “non-solutions for unseen problems” is working just fine:  Iran keeps up its nuclear bomb momentum, and al Qaeda expands its foothold in Egypt, Syria and Yemen.  Israel and its military option are shoved out of sight.”

....

Obama has lied to American Jews and millions of friends of Israel about his willingness to use military force against Iran to prevent it getting its nuclear weapons.  (It presently has enough nuclear materials for 5 nuclear bombs.)


If Obama is re-elected (and Israel has not bombed Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities before the election) Obama will have all the “flexibility” he needs to prevent Israel from doing so before Iran gets its nuclear weapons - and the Jewish people face a second Holocaust.
