Man Who Allegedly Raped Oregon Woman
Had Previous ICE Detainer, 13 Deportations
by Will Racke
{} ~ The man accused of a brutal sexual assault of an Oregon woman is a “serial immigration violator” who was previously released from the Multnomah County Jail despite a formal detention request, federal officials confirmed Friday... Sergio Jose Martinez, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, had been deported at least 13 times since 2008, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Virginia Kice confirmed to Portland’s KATU2. Martinez, 31, was also the subject of an ICE detainer request placed Dec. 7, 2016 with the Multnomah County Jail, where he was being held on local charges. Because Oregon law prohibits police from using agency resources to enforce immigration law, jail officials released Martinez the following day without notifying ICE...

COUNSEL For liar-CLINTON/liar-nOBAMA Syndicate
{} ~ Rep Jim Jordan encouraged his colleagues to vote in the affirmative on an amendment calling for the Justice Department to appoint a second Special Counsel to investigate the criminal syndicate... that was the liar-nObama regime, a vote which was passed out of committee along party lines. He starts off by noting the effort of Loretta Lynch to provide cover for liar-Hillary Clinton by instructing FBI Director Comey to call the investigation a “matter.” He asks, “Why would the Attorney General meet with the subject of the investigation’s husband three days before the subject of the investigation is to be interviewed by the FBI?” He asks, “Why would that happen? Maybe because they wanted liar-Clinton to win the election.” He asks why there isn’t an investigation into the liar-nObama administration’s influence on our election to go along with the manufactured ones about Russia...

{} ~ Palestinians declared a hard-won victory Thursday against what they saw as an attempt by Israel to limit access at their holiest site, the al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Nearly two weeks after Israel installed metal detectors at the gates to the sensitive shrine -- a response to the killing of two Israeli police offices there by three Israeli Arab gunmen -- Israel dismantled all of the new metal detectors, cameras, scaffolding and infrastructure erected after the deadly July 14 attack.

Jerusalem's grand mufti, Mohammed Hussein, a spiritual leader and custodian of the mosque in Jerusalem, urged Muslims on Thursday to return to their shrine for worship, declaring the crisis over.

Worshippers had refrained from entering the compound for past 12 days, praying on the streets outside instead.

With news of the victory, hundreds of thousands of Muslim flooded the 37-acre holy complex singing victory songs and chanting "Allah is great." A group of youths scaled the mosque's stone wall and planted a Palestinian flag on the top.

Within minutes, Israeli police officers followed in their path and tore the flag down. Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that worshippers started to pelt rocks at security forces, as well as at Jewish worshippers praying at the adjacent Western Wall.

The cheers of joy were quickly replaced with the crack of stun grenades and the air filled with smoke as Israeli police shot tear gas canisters inside the mosque compound. At least 40 worshippers and 10 Israeli police officers were reported injured.

Clashes continued at the site throughout the evening.

"The police will respond with a tough hand to any disturbances," said the spokesman in a statement.

Israeli security officials said they are bracing for huge crowds on Friday at week's end prayers at al-Aqsa, the scene for frequent clashes -- not only today, but over the decades.

Jerusalem police chief Yoram Halevi warned Palestinian protesters that his officers will respond to provocations with force.

"No one should try to test us tomorrow," Halevi told reporters, urging calm but adding, "if there are people who try to disturb the peace, to harm police or citizens, they should not be surprised. There will be casualties and people injured."

"This was a big miscalculation by the Israelis, who underestimated the power of the Jerusalem street, which has surprised everybody, even the Palestinian leadership," said Abu Abad al Qaq, 49, a building contractor from Silwan in east Jerusalem, who attended the protests at the Lion's Gate.

Ibrahim Awad Allah, a top official in the Islamic Waqf, which serves as custodian of the holy site, under the control and patronage of the king of Jordan, said the victory at the site was a "message to the Israeli occupation that their arrogance failed them."

"Everything that has been imposed by the Israelis, all of it, has been removed," he said, calling such a withdrawal both rare and sweet. "This is a victory."

Beginning with the Palestinian attack that left the Israeli police officers dead on July 14, the turmoil over access to the mosque has left 15 people dead, including three Israelis fatally stabbed in their home in a West Bank settlement and two Jordanians, one an alleged assailant and the other a bystander, shot by a security guard at the Israeli embassy in Amman, Jordan.

The decision by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his government to back down over the increased security measures, after days of vowing the metal detectors would stay for security reasons, was seen by both Israelis and Palestinians as a capitulation.

Some said Netanyahu did the right and smart thing by de-escalating the tension, but members of his own government criticized him for what they saw as weakness in the face of Palestinian opposition and violence.

"Israel comes out weakened from this crisis," hard-line minister Naftali Bennett said on Israel Army Radio Thursday morning. "Instead of sending a message about Israel's sovereignty on the Temple Mount, it sent a message that Israel's sovereignty can be questioned."

Other ministers, too, spoke often over the past 12 days about Israel's control at the sensitive site.

At the outbreak of the crisis, Israel's Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan said it was up to Israel to decide security protocol for the site.

Israel's minister for national security and foreign affairs, Tzachi Hanegbi, said earlier this week in a radio interview that Israel would not give into threats at Temple Mount.

"If you are threatening us that you won't enter the Mount, then don't enter the Mount. Put down prayer mats and pray wherever you want. If you want to pray on the Mount, pass through the checkpoints just as I had to do at the Vatican a few weeks ago, just as we all have to at the Western Wall," he said.

He said that Israel was the sovereign power in Jerusalem and on the Temple Mount.

But the ongoing protests, some peaceful and some violent, have challenged that.

Over the past week and a half, Palestinian Muslim worshipers have laid their prayer mats down on the street outside the mosque compound, stirring emotions in the wider Arab world and causing tensions between Israel and one of its closest Muslim allies, Jordan.

In a Facebook post Wednesday, Netanyahu vowed to shut down the Jerusalem bureau of Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based news network, for broadcasting inciting images from Jerusalem.

"The Al Jazeera network continues to incite to violence over the Temple Mount," Netanyahu wrote on social media. "I've appealed several times to law enforcement demanding to close Al Jazeera's office in Jerusalem. If this does not happen due to legal interpretation, I will work to enact the required legislation to expel Al Jazeera from Israel."

Netanyahu's office declined to give any specific examples of the Al Jazeera content that might have stoked tensions.

Asked for a specific example of Al Jazeera incitement, a communications adviser in Netanyahu's office suggested reporters just scroll Google.

Last week, the channel published a short video clip showing an Israeli police officer kicking a Palestinian kneeling on a prayer mat for worship. Netanyahu's office did not dispute the veracity of the clip.

It was this image and others that spurred Omar al-Abed, a 19-year-old Palestinian to stab to death three Israelis in the settlement of Halamish on Friday night, his father told The Washington Post this week.

Netanyahu called the teen a "beast," and said he was "incited by Jew hatred."

The gruesome attack, which left a 70-year-old Israeli grandfather and his two adult children lying in a pool of blood in the family's kitchen, drew angry reactions from Israeli leaders, with several calling for Israel to use the death penalty. The attacker was shot but only lightly wounded.

Palestinians say the Israelis are also guilty of inciting violence.

They point to statements by Israeli parliament Oren Hazan, who posted a video on his Facebook account saying that he wanted to demolish the home of Palestinian assailant Omar al-Abed and "execute" his family.

"I want to be honest without sounding too extreme, but if it was up to me, I would've gone to the terrorist's house yesterday, grabbed him and his whole family and executed them all together," said Hazan, who is a member of Netanyahu's Likud party.
