Case in point.
The following website shows the names of the 15 [16 if you count the "Occupied" Palestian Territory (PLO)] nations that have ENP action plans with the EU, including Israel:
The next website, entitled "Mid Term Review of the ENPI Programming Documents," shows that only 13 have a "Link to the concept note of the new Indicative Programme 2011-13." Missing are 1) Israel, 2) Belanrus, and 3) the non-state, "Occupied" Palestian Territory (PLO):
One might be forgiven for thinking that the EU has some reservations about renewing Israel's ENPI agreement, come mid-term.
Why is Acciona developing these projects instead of American companies?
Many have looked on in disgust at the events that transpired a couple days ago at Ft Hood. As I got to looking at the story coming out of the incident, some things don't add up. First a small review of what is said to be the case. Officialy one man, shouted Allah Akbar, fired over 200 rounds, hitting 44 people on a hardened military base. Said person was officialy declared dead by multiple sources, only to be resurrected 5 hours later.
The civilian officer who shot the gunman, was also said to have died, which later was revealed inaccurate. Given the above and what I know of the weapons used, one 9mm, and one revolver of which I am unsure the caliber, this is barely plausible in a elementary school, let alone a military base. To put this in perspective, the revolver holds 6 rounds, the 9mm holds 11-15 depending on the clip. Doing the math one finds said shooter would have to reload approximately 10 times to accomplish this act.
All interviews with those who personally knew the shooter state this was not the type of act one would expect from him. So how does a psychology major who was less than what one would consider extreme about his faith, suddenly become Al Qaeda esque on a military base and fire 200 rounds?
According to Texas Gov Rick Perry, apparently there were three shooters.
So, how do we go from 3 to 1 without missing a beat? What about this doesn't add up, is it that they don't seem to want you to know how many were involved, or that they do seem to want to impress upon you that the single assailant shouted Allah Akbar before going on a uncharacteristic rampage? Other witnesses reported early that there were multiple shooters, yet that was reported by several outlets as a mistake by the MSM. If I can find video of the other witnesses I will post it, but I believe the Perry comments make my point well enough for me.
Reports coming out of Israel have reported that the United States has possibly accepted the EU position from the EU Foreign Ministry led by Solana that a unilateral Palestinian state will be announced and forced upon Israel. Interestingly, Solana and company just visited the US after this is leaked in Israeli media. Nothing is done by coincidence. My feeling is this is moving fast in this direction. If this is true, then the world will force Jews from E. Jerusalem, Judea, and Samaria. This fulfills Scripture in Matthew 24 where the world will persecute heavily the Jews in the middle of the 70th week. All nations of the world are truly turning against Israel and the demonic influences in the White House and the capitals of the world must be salivating at their victory, but we know in the end the final victory is to Jesus Christ which was given on the Cross, and will be seen and finalized at the Second Coming.
I will continue to follow this as well as the EU situation with the possibly new foreign minister. Reports are that Solana will retire next month which is when the new EU positions are supposed to be given. Those positions may be announced as early as this week. So much fluid news at the moment. Time will let us know how this all comes out.
"Concerns are growing in Israel's government over the possibility of a unilateral Palestinian declaration of independence within the 1967 borders, a move which could potentially be recognized by the United Nations Security Council.
The reports indicated that Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad has reached a secret understanding with the Obama administration over U.S. recognition of an independent Palestinian state. Such recognition would likely transform any Israeli presence across the Green Line, even in Jerusalem, into an illegal incursion to which the Palestinians would be entitled to engage in measures of self-defense."

"VeriChip shaves 3mm off human RFID chips
No doubt allaying users' fears at a stroke
By Bill Ray • Get more from this author

Free whitepaper – The business value of SIP VoIP and trunking
Luddites still objecting to having an 11mm chip implanted in an arm will no doubt be relieved to hear that VeriChip has developed an even-smaller implantable RFID tag, measuring a diminutive 8mm by 1mm.
Not that this new chip is designed for tagging people as such. It's been developed for use with "vascular access catheters" being deployed by MedComp. The contract is worth $3m to VeriChip, though the company can see other benefits to getting its tags in to people.
Vascular access catheters are tubes which are stuck into people requiring repeated intervention - so that blood sampling, drug delivery, and so forth can take place without sticking needles into the patent every five minutes. Once approved for human use, Medcomp will start embedding VerChip's new tag into its catheters, so the capabilities can easily be checked and (presumably) patients can easily be scanned for any forgotten hardware.
But people-tagging is still firmly on the agenda, with VeriChip hopeful that once people have had one tag inside them, they'll happily opt for another: "We also expect to offer the VeriMed Health Link patient identification service at a reduced rate to all patients who receive a Medcomp vascular port" said VeriChip chairman Scott R. Silverman, when the contract was announced.
"Relations between the United States and Italy have already been strained by our privileged alliance with Putin's Russia, as well as ties with Iran and Libya - and in recent days by the notion of a disengagement from Lebanon [reference to Italian peacekeepers in UNIFIL]. Now, paradoxically, the first to suffer the consequences of American mistrust in unlikely to be Silvio Berlusconi - but Massimo D'Alema, who is still in the running to become the E.U.'s defense and foreign policy chief [aka/the high representative for the common foreign and security policy, who is now Javier Solana].
In the past few hours there has likely been an intensification of American pressure in favor of the British candidate, David Miliband, dictated by a desire not to reward Italy, even if D'Alema is a former prime minister who committed the nation in Kosovo and a former foreign minister who pushed for the intervention of a peacekeeping force to stabilize Lebanon. But regardless of who the candidate is, in Washington one would reason that the choice of D'Alema would be viewed as a green light for Italy's conduct. It's no coincidence that just yesterday, the candidacy of our former prime minister was torpedoed by the most pro-American Atlanticist newcomer to the E.U.: Poland. And so the open battle over "Mr. CFSP" [Mr. Common Foreign and Security Policy] is moving from Brussels to Washington."

Barak: Trip to USA for Drafting Agreement With the PA
Cheshvan 16, 5770, 03 November 09 09:21
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz
(Israelnationalnews.com) Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu are traveling to the United States this week to meet with senior White House officials in an effort to draft an agreement to be offered to the Fatah-led half of the Palestinian Authority, under Mahmoud Abbas. Such an agreement, Barak said Tuesday, will include a "viable Palestinian State" and the end of Israeli sovereignty in Judea and Samaria.
According to Barak, the Obama administration will be expected to promote the agreed-upon draft to Abbas, in an effort to kick-start Israel-PA talks.

Sure looks like things are moving fast now.
According to Wikipedia:
Type Public (BMAD: ANA)
Headquarters Madrid, Spain
Key people José Manuel Entrecanales (Chairman of the board and CEO)
Industry Construction and engineering
Products Infrastructure and renewable energy construction, water desalination, real estate, logistics and transport services, built environment services
Revenue €12.67 billion (2008)
Operating income ▲ €1.678 billion (2008)
Profit ▲ €464 million (2008)

Acciona, SA, (BMAD: ANA) is a Spanish conglomerate group dedicated to civil engineering, construction and infrastructure.
The company was founded in 1997 through the merger of Entrecanales y Tavora and Cubiertas y MZOV. The company's headquarters is in Alcobendas, Community of Madrid, Spain. The company's U.S. operations are headquartered in Chicago.
Acciona is controlled by chairman José Manuel Entrecanales and his family through Grupo Entrecanales.
You may have been off topic, but many of us are scratching our heads over the same thing. One of the soldiers that was wounded lives in our state, and his family was totally muzzled by the military. The local news channel wanted to interview them, but they were told that the military would not allow anything of the sort. I wonder if we will ever really know the truth. But then, what is truth these days?
After the shooting last Thursday, everyone at Fort Hood was ordered on "lock down" and was also ordered not to speak to the media.
(In other words, do not call or text CNN, Fox News, etc. on your cell phones - because maybe your actual eye witness report might differ from the "official" version / SPIN that we are going to release later on???????)
Are we so used to swallowing what the mainstream media tries to shove down our throats that we have lost the ability to think and reason for ourselves?
The official story of one lone gunman shooting 43 people multiple times, with two hand guns, clearly defies logic and common sense.
The early reports (which are disappearing from the web) stated multiple shooters, Rick Perry stated multiple, then hours later it is one? With everything involved not only do I believe this was manipulated, I believe we may see more like it in the coming months.
Events like this and the shooting in Florida will be their "justification" for what they are planning. This is most likely the "civil unrest" DHS was warning of. I figure the motives will vary from incident to incident. Some will be religous, others constitutional, others yet will be labled as intolerance of gay marriage/union or whatever else you can label an abomination.
This is just begining, we have been watching the changing season for some time. I believe we are in for a hard winter, followed by a frightening spring. Between the health care bill being passed in the dark of night and the storm that is brewing as a result. The possibility of the pneumonic plague in the Ukraine spreading across a populace thats immune system has been comprimised, thanks to a vaccine they didn't need.
The pressure building to force a palestinean country on Israel, thanks to the Goldstone Report. Which was proven to be a farce. The mounting tension between Israel, Iran, and basicly that entire region. Not to mention the economic collapse, which is more of a matter of when, not if. My motto has become, get right, focus on the Lord. For this is the only things we will be able to cling to in the coming storm.
In related news, I saw some of Acciona video footage used for a enviro piece on CNN this morning. Will have to see if I can find it.
very slow connect unless you have the latest explorers
Officials: U.S. Aware of Hasan Efforts to Contact al Qaeda
Army Major in Fort Hood Massacre Used 'Electronic Means' to Connect with Terrorists
U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.
It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.
Rep. Peter Hoekstra (R-MI), the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, said that he requested the CIA and other intelligence agencies brief the committee on what was known, if anything, about Hasan by the U.S. intelligence community, only to be refused.
In response, Hoekstra issued a document preservation request to four intelligence agencies. The letter, dated November 7th, was sent to directors Dennis Blair (DNI), Robert Mueller (FBI), Lt. Gen Keith Alexander (NSA) and Leon Panetta (CIA).
Hoekstra said he is "absolutely furious" that the house intel committee has been refused an intelligence briefing by the DNI or CIA on Hasan's attempt to reach out to al Qaeda, as first reported by ABC News.
Ok, so not only did a "lone gunman" pull off the impossible,. But the intelligence community knew a Major in the United States Army was attempting to contact a known terrorist organization, and said Major did not immediately be taken in for questioning!?!? Then we have a member of theHouse Intelligance Committee that wants Congress to be debriefed, and the CIA refuses the request?!?!
After you click on "Read entire article" (from CNN):
Click on the second video. There is an interview with PFC Joseph Foster, who was one of the injured (shot in the hip) at Fort Hood last Thursday.
In the video, it was stated that "the Military had asked the survivors to refrain from discussing what they saw."
Leave it to CNN to be one of the biggest official media promoters of the new age movement. There may be others, but CNN has one of the largest reaches in terms of audience. In fact, while at the YMCA, I noticed something that Oprah is doing on CNN, but I couldn't figure out what it was all about.
