Saudi Cleric Teaches Kids to Hate Jews

Yet another hideous beast wearing a rag over his head indoctrinates children to hate Jews. This creature is a saudi cleric speaking on al jazeera. Watch at the end of the video as this sick pedophile asks a little boy he brought up to the microphone, if he will give him his jacket and then kisses and fondles him.

Arabs Embrace Sudan's Mass Murdering Ruler

Dirty inhuman ragheads embrace Sudan’s genocidal president at their summit. It only goes to show that even the so-called “moderate” arab states are vile, hateful beasts. So while the arabs falsely accuse Israel of genocide and war crimes, they enable real war criminals like Sudan's al-bashir as he slaughters black Christians, Animists and even muslims. That is because he's one of their own and arabs and muslims are the world's biggest racists and hatemongers. Just seeing these fat, ugly, greasy disgusting sheiks in their robes and rags over their heads is enough to make me puke. And the worst part of it is that these murderous beasts collectively wield so much power globally because of all that oil they possess.

DOHA, Qatar – Qatar's leader embraced Sudan's president in a red-carpet welcome Sunday as he arrived to attend an Arab Summit in his most brazen act of defiance against an international arrest warrant on charges of war crimes in Darfur.

For host Qatar — a key U.S. ally that is home to American warplanes and more than 5,000 U.S. troops — the Arab League meeting beginning Monday also showcases its desire to stake out a prominent role in regional affairs even at the risk of angering the West.

Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir had promised to attend the 22-nation gathering after assurances from members they would not enforce the International Criminal Court's arrest order issued March 4. But his lavish arrival sent an apparent message that al-Bashir will have a center stage role at the two-day meeting.

Wearing a traditional Sudanese robe and white turban, a smiling al-Bashir was greeted at the airport with an embrace and kiss by Qatar's emir. They later had coffee with the head of the Arab League, Amr Moussa.

It was a low-risk trip for al-Bashir with high symbolic value for his Arab backers, who argue that carrying out the ICC's arrest would further destabilize Sudan as the Darfur conflict between the Arab-led government and ethnic African rebels enters its seventh year.

Only Jordan and two other tiny Arab League members, the Comoros and Djibouti, are party to the ICC charter, but can take no action on Qatari soil. Arab foreign ministers have endorsed a draft resolution for the summit rejecting the ICC's arrest warrant.

ICC prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo has said that al-Bashir should be arrested once he leaves Sudanese airspace, but it was unclear whether any military forces were monitoring his flight. The United States does not recognize the ICC's jurisdiction, citing fears that Americans would be unfairly prosecuted for political reasons. But President Barack Obama earlier this month denounced the "genocide" in Darfur.

The Sudanese government's battle against rebels in the western Darfur region has killed up to 300,000 people and driven 2.7 million from their homes since 2003, according to the United Nations.

"The president is performing his duties and is going to visit more countries either on bilateral bases or for regional meetings," said al-Bashir's foreign policy adviser, Mustafa Osman Ismail. The Sudanese leader also visited Eritrea, Egypt and Libya over the past week.

"What is required from all of us is to stand with our brothers in Sudan and its leadership in order to prevent dangers that affect our collective security," Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem said.

But the Arab ministers rejected an offer from Sudan to host an emergency Arab summit. Instead, Arab governments promised to increase diplomatic visits to Sudan.

Women in Turkey Forced to Commit Suicide

The muslim male is a wicked creature. In Turkey, muslim women are being forced by male members of their families to commit suicide so that these beasts can avoid going to prison for committing an "honor" killing.

This is the true face of islam in all its hideous, evil horror. And this is taking place in a country we are told is a “moderate” westernized muslim society. Like hell it is. Let us once and for all discard the absurd politically correct notion that there is any such thing as a moderate islam or that islam can remotely be compatible with western freedom and democracy. It cannot possibly be and I would hope that Europe does not allow Turkey membership in the EU. And certainly muslim immigration should cease.

Muslim women told: For family's sake, commit suicide
Honor killers avoid prison by forcing victims to take own lives

Turkey's crackdown on the practice of honor killing has resulted in unintended consequences – instead of being murdered by a close male relative for bringing dishonor to their families, Muslim women are being pressured to commit suicide.

And the numbers of "honor suicides" are soaring, reported the UK's Independent.

Despite a 2005 change in the nation's penal code requiring a mandatory life sentence for honor killers, the number of women killed by male relatives is at a record level – more than 200 a year, half of all murders committed in Turkey. But it is that change in the law that has given rise to the growing phenomenon of women taking their own lives. Prior to 2005, killers were able to receive reduced sentences by claiming provocation.

Controversial DVD reveals fundamentalist Islamic mob justice in all its ugliness. 'The Stoning of Soraya M' refuses to let such horror go unremembered.

Elif, 18, from Batman in southeast Turkey, was told by her father she must kill herself so he would not be sent to prison for murdering her after she refused an offer of an arranged marriage with an older man.

"I loved my father so much, I was ready to commit suicide for him even though I hadn't done anything wrong," she said. "But I just couldn't go through with it. I love life too much."

The young woman was forced to flee and go into hiding. Her uncles and other relatives have been hunting her for the past eight months, even conducting an armed raid of a women's shelter where she had been.

"I managed to escape," said Elif. "When I was at school, a few girls I knew were killed by their families in the name of honor – one of them for simply receiving a text message from a boy."

In her hometown of Batman – nicknamed "Suicide City" – 75 percent of all suicides are committed now by women.

Obama Recruiting muslims to Work in White House

This is just what we need, muslims in the White House. Because we don't currently have enough non-muslim dhimmis in the highest levels of our government, lets just bring in the enemy itself. President Obama seeks to bring muslims into the White House staff as part of an outreach program. Liberals are every bit as dangerous to us as muslims are. They either have blinders on or are purposefully committing treason.

Obama seeks Muslims for White House posts

Rep. Keith Ellison taking oath of office


WASHINGTON – Barack Obama is conducting his own affirmative action program to get more Muslims in the White House.

The move began with Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn, who took his oath of office with a hand on the Quran, to solicit the resume of what he considered to be the nation's most qualified adherents of Islam.

According to the Denver Post, when White House officials heard about the program, it was put on overdrive.

So far, 45 Ivy League grads, Fortune 500 executives and government officials have been submitted for consideration.

J. Saleh Williams, program coordinator for the Congressional Muslim Staffers Association, sifted through more than 300 names as part of the search.

"It was mostly under the radar," Williams said. "We thought it would put (the president) in a precarious position. We didn't know how closely he wanted to appear to be working with the Muslim American community."

Ellison is serious about his faith. He made the pilgrimage to Mecca with the sponsorship of the Muslim American Society, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In 1991, Mohamed Akram wrote a memo for the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood that explained its work in America as "a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and 'sabotaging' its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God's religion is made victorious over all other religions."

Nonie Darwish Speaks About islam

Nonie Darwish speaks the blunt truth about islam. It isn't anything remotely resembling a true religion at all, but a totalitarian political ideology which controls every aspect of life, where women are chattel and non-muslims must either convert, live as second class citizens or be killed. Jihad is not a struggle for inner peace or some such nonsense gullible liberals proclaim it means, it means holy war against infidels. When will western liberals get it through their thick skulls? Nonie Darwish comes from that culture, she's originally from Egypt and knows what she's talking about. Westerners need to listen to her.

This Week's Haveil Havalim

Edition #210 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is hosted by Random Thoughts.

Israel in the Role of Sacrificial Lamb

Very tough times are ahead for Israel as it becomes increasingly isolated with the nations of the world lining up against it and the pressure mounts for Israel to surrender territory to muslim terrorists in the west's, including America's foolish, suicidal belief that sacrificing Israel will bring it favor with the muslim world. It is crucial that we pressure our own representatives to reign in the Obama administration and make sure it does NOT apply any such pressure on Israel to cave into hamas' and other "palestinian" terrorist demands.

Right now the EU is warning Netanyahu regarding a two-state solution, threatening Israel that its relations with the EU will become very difficult. When have relations with the EU been anything but difficult for Israel? When the hell has europe EVER been anything but hostile towards Israel? On the other hand no such pressure or ultimatums are being placed on the so-called palestinians to end terror, end incitement and acknowledge Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, lest THEIR relations “become very difficult” with the EU. If anything, hamas is being given billions with no strings attached. The entire fraudulent “peace” process is nothing more than about forcing Israel into unilateral concessions with nothing whatsoever expected in return from the other side. It has nothing to do with creating peace, it is about the west appeasing the muslim world at the expense of Israel. I’m so sick of this crap. Indeed Bibi needs to tell Schwarzenberg and the EU that Israel will not be made a sacrificial lamb so Europe can curry favor with the muslim world, or so it thinks. The fact is that muslim hostility to the west won’t cease with the sacrifice of Israel.

The British Media and the Arab Lobby

Proof the British media is in the pocket of the arab lobby. As for the myth of the all powerful Jewish or Israel lobby, it is non-existent in England or anywhere in Europe. As far as America is concerned, whatever minor influence that pro-Israel interests have in Washington, still pales in comparison to the Arab lobby.

The real lobby and its acolytes
Friday, 27th March 2009



Those who are regularly left open-mouthed at the way in which the British media puts across an overwhelmingly Arab narrative about Israel and the Middle East, trasmitting lies and distortions as facts and reversing victim and victimiser to present Israel as the regional aggressor and the Palestinians as their targets, may well also scratch their heads at being told with monotonous regularity that ‘the Jews control the media’.

Well now Arab Media Watch lifts a curtain to show us the real lobby at work. It boasts:

Some 200 guests gathered at Kensington's Royal Garden Hotel on 21 March 2009 to attend Arab Media Watch’s fifth annual fundraising dinner, and to mark its ninth anniversary. Among the guests were almost three-dozen senior journalists from the BBC, Al Jazeera English, Financial Times, Reuters, Daily Mail, Independent, Asharq Al Awsat, Al Quds Al Arabi, Al Hayat and others.

The evening began with a welcome speech by AMW chairman Sharif Hikmat Nashashibi, who outlined the extensive work done by the organisation during and since Israel's invasion of Gaza, including:

- forcing the media to correct factual errors
- meeting with editors and journalists
- providing them with information
- being interviewed by them or arranging interviews for them
- getting letters and articles published
- being quoted and cited in articles
- publishing studies, press releases and Action Alerts
- organising and speaking at events
- helping university students and researchers

‘All this was done,’ Nashashibi reminded the audience, ‘while continuing our work on media portrayals of the entire Arab world, a huge but vital task undertaken on a budget that’s dwarfed by that of the pro-Israel lobbies.’ He added: ‘We've proven the sceptics wrong for the last nine years, establishing ourselves as a credible, professional, dynamic organisation with the recognition, respect and support of much of the British media, and high-level contacts in every news organisation…AMW is making a considerable and invaluable difference, and wants to continue doing so.’

Galloway's hamas Front Charity

The "charity" of anti-semitic, pro-islamist British MP george galloway, is being investigated. The putrid galloway is a known supporter of hamas and hezbollah. The "charity" he founded called Lifeline for Gaza is being investigated by the Charity Commission for how it is spending cash after it refused to provide this information. I don't think its a stretch to guess that it is a front group for supporting hamas.

A charity championed by George Galloway is under investigation.

The Charity Commission is examining how Lifeline for Gaza, also known as Viva Palestina, spent cash after attempts to get information from them failed.

It funded a £1million aid convoy that the MP accompanied to Gaza this month.

The watchdog said: "We have concerns over use of funds." Mr Galloway came up with the idea for the charity but does not hold a post. Lifeline said it came "as a complete surprise".

Arabs Riot in Umm-el Fahm

Patriotic Israeli Jews march peacefully through the arab controlled city of Umm el-Fahm waving Israeli flags to emphasize that there cannot be any no-go areas for Jews in the Jewish homeland. In response, the arabs and their leftist allies riot, gathering on rooftops and on the streets throwing rocks which injured police. True to form, the liberal media blamed the peaceful Jewish demonstrators for provoking the violence rather than the arabs who actually perpetrated the violence.

As Caroline Glick points out, such attitudes show the inherent racism of liberals who believe Arabs or any other non-white people for that matter, are not to be held accountable for their behavior, cannot be expected to be civilized, law-abiding and patriotic citizens. I disagree with Caroline however that attempting to inculcate Israeli values of liberal democracy will be effective in transforming the attitudes of most Israeli Arabs. For muslims, their loyalty is to the islamic ummah and not their respective countries.

Tuesday's riots in Umm el-Fahm and the debate which accompanied them are emblematic of one of the greatest challenges facing not only Israel, but much of the Western world today. Far-Right Jewish Israeli political activists held a peaceful demonstration in the radical Arab-Islamist dominated city of Umm el-Fahm in the Galilee under heavy police protection. Thousands of Arab Israelis supported by far-Left Jewish Israeli political activists reacted with violent rioting. And the media blamed the violence on the peaceful Jewish Israeli demonstrators.

Tuesday's demonstration, which was led by former followers of the late Rabbi Meir Kahane MK Michael Ben-Ari, Baruch Marzel and Itamar Ben-Gvir, was supposed to take place last December after the High Court of Justice upheld the activists' legal right to march through the city. But the police blocked it, claiming they could not guarantee the marchers' security. Only after again being ordered by the court to let the demonstration go forward did the police relent. But they limited the march to the outskirts of the city.

In accordance with the police guidelines, on Tuesday the marchers were transported to the periphery of the town in bullet-proof buses. Some 2,500 policemen deployed along the Wadi Ara highway and throughout the town to protect them. They were allowed to march holding flags and singing folk songs for a half an hour, and then returned to their bullet-proof buses.

In the meantime, thousands of local residents standing on rooftops and crowding into the streets began rioting. They threw volley after volley of rocks at the Jewish marchers and the police protecting them. They cursed them. They cursed the police. In the end, some 15 policemen were wounded by the projectiles - including Deputy Insp-Gen. Shahar Ayalon, the Israel Police's No. 2 commander.

As far as the media were concerned, the fact that thousands of Arabs attacked the police and the lawful demonstrators was a non-story. The fact that these Israeli Arab citizens claimed to be personally insulted and injured because the demonstration "forced" them to set their eyes on their national flag was seemingly understandable. The fact that these Israeli citizens rejected Israel's flag while waving Palestinian and Islamic flags was neither newsworthy nor controversial. No one in the media asked the Arab rioters whom they felt threatened by. No one asked them why seeing Jews marching with the flag of Israel should provoke them to attack.

To the extent the media found a culprit, it was the Jewish demonstrators. They were "provocateurs" who forced taxpayers to spend millions of shekels to deploy 2,500 policemen armed with riot gear to the city. It never occurred to the media that Ben-Ari, Marzel and Ben-Gvir were not the cause of the enormous police presence. They were a danger to no one. The reason the police were forced to deploy so massively was because they believed that the Arabs would attack the Jewish demonstrators. It was the Arabs, not the Jews whom the police feared would break the law. And as it works out, they were right.

THE MEDIA'S coverage of the Umm el-Fahm riot fits into an ongoing pattern. Over the years, the local media have developed a code for reporting on Arabs - whether Palestinian or Israeli or foreign. And it is a bigoted code.

As far as Israel's media are concerned, Arabs cannot be expected to act like responsible citizens. They cannot be required to abide by the law like the rest of the country's citizens. As far as Israel's media and the rest of the political Left are concerned, Arabs are either victims or objects. They cannot be culprits or independent actors. Their will - to the extent they have one - is collective. No individual can be held accountable for his or her actions. And their will is reactive. All Arab actions are but reactions to Jewish provocations.

Anti-Semitic Cartoon

Pat Oliphant draws a disgusting cartoon depicting Israelis as being akin to nazis. That goose-stepping figure should have been portrayed alongside the crescent, the symbol of islam, since that would truly be apt. Of course Oliphant would never have the balls to do that. It's far easier to go after Jews and Israel since the worst thing he has to worry about in response is receiving admonishment from the Simon Wiesenthal Center. On the other hand, if he had drawn a derogatory cartoon about muslims, he would have to get bodyguards and go into hiding as the Danish cartoonists had to. So the cartoon is quite ironic.

Jewish groups slam 'hideously anti-Semitic' cartoon on Gaza

By Haaretz Service and The Associated Press

American Jewish groups have denounced a "hideously anti-Semitic" cartoon on Israel, comparing it to cartoons in the 1930s that led up to the Holocaust.

The syndicated cartoon by Pat Oliphant published Wednesday in newspapers across the country depicts a giant goose-stepping uniformed figure wheeling a fanged Star of David that menaces a small female figure labeled "Gaza."

The Simon Wiesenthal Center, the group founded by a famed Nazi hunter which has more than 400,000 members in the United States, says the cartoon denigrates and demonizes Israel and mimics the Nazi propaganda.

It called on The New York Times and other media groups to remove the cartoon from their Web sites.

"Pat Oliphant's outlandish and offensive use of the Star of David in combination with Nazi-like imagery is hideously anti-Semitic," Anti-Defamation League chief Abe Foxman said.

A message was left Wednesday night with Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes Oliphant's cartoons. Oliphant won a Pulitzer Prize in 1967.

Somali Refugees

It's astounding that after 9/11 our government still facilitates the entry of thousands of muslim refugees from Somalia into this country. Then again they also continue to bring saudi students here as well, and numerous other muslim immigrants from many different countries. This is nuts.

CBN Airs Documentary on Somalis in Shelbyville


Erick Stakelbeck of CBN has produced a segment that airs today on the cultural clash with Somali Muslims in a small middle Tennessee town, Shelbyville. Read his story, "Somali Muslims Changing Small Town" and watch the segment, here. We had interviewed AP-award winning Shelbyville Times-Gazette jounalist, Brian Moseley for a NER article in February, 2008, "Somalis, Shelbyville and Severe Culture Shock", read here, who is featured in this CBN report.

Note these excerpts from Stakelbeck's CBN report and comments by Mosely.

Shelbyville is about an hour's drive from Nashville, in the heart of the Bible Belt. Like many Americans, the citizens of Shelbyville knew little about Somalia other than the 1993 Black Hawk Down incident, in which 18 U.S. servicemen were killed while battling warlords and Islamic jihadists in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

So when hundreds of Somalis began turning up in the town--many of them dressed in traditional Islamic garb--locals quickly took notice.

"They've had an impact here. Unfortunately, it's not been a good impact," said Brian Mosely, a reporter for the local Shelbyville Times-Gazette.

Mosely won an award from the Associated Press for a series of articles he wrote for the paper about Shelbyville's Somalis.

"I found that there was just an enormous culture clash going on here," he said. "The Somalis were--according to a lot of the people I talked to here--were being very, very rude, inconsiderate, very demanding. Tthey would go into stores and haggle over prices. They would also demand to see a male salesperson, would not deal with women in stores"

Why I Loathe the Media

This is why I detest the msm. Here is a reporter's question to president Obama during Tuesday's presidential press conference:
From the Presidential News Conference New York Times trasnscript, White House, March 24, 2009

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Okay. Stephen Collinson, AFP.

QUESTION: Mr. President, you came to office pledging to work for peace between Israel and the Palestinians.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Yeah.

QUESTION: How realistic do you think those are hopes are now, given the likelihood of a prime minister who’s not fully signed up to a two- state solution and a foreign minister who’s been accused of insulting Arabs?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: It’s not easier than it was, but I think it’s just as necessary. We don’t yet know what the Israeli government is going to look like. And we don’t yet know what the future shape of Palestinian leadership is going to be comprised of.

Once again we have here an example of the perverse worldview of those mental midgets in the media. According to this jackass reporter, it is not arab terrorism and intransigence which make peace unrealistic, it is Israel’s incoming right of center PM and foreign minister which will be an obstacle to peace. Is there anyone in the msm capable of critical thinking rather than just empty-headed dimwits spewing the same old party line?

Israel Held Under a Microscope

Just as I knew it would be, the latest blood libels against the IDF have already been debunked.

"All of the soldiers who were involved in the conference were questioned - not as a punishment - but in order to understand whether they had witnessed these things. From all of the testimonies we collected, we can safely conclude that the soldiers who made the claims did not witness the events they describe," the source said.

"All of it was based on rumors. In the incident of the alleged shooting of the mother and her children, what really happened was that a marksman fired a warning shot to let them know that they were entering a no-entry zone. The shot was not even fired in their general direction," the source said.

"The marksman's commander ran up the stairs of a Palestinian home, got up on the roof, and asked the marksman why he shot at the civilians. The marksman said he did not fire on the civilians. But the soldiers on the first floor of that house heard the commander's question being shouted. And from that point, the rumor began to spread," the source added.

"We can say with absolute certainty that the marksman did not fire on the woman and her children. Later, the company commander spoke with the marksman and his commander. We know with certainty that this incident never took place," he said.

The source said that a second allegation of killing of civilians was also false, though he could not provide further details at this stage.

"We investigate every allegation in order to see whether these incidents took place, and to draw conclusions if necessary," the source stressed.

"Unfortunately, due to competition, sections of the press picked up this story and ran with it. It is a shame the media promoted this sort of spin all over the world," he added. It is unlikely the damage to Israel's image from the allegations can be repaired, irrespective of the results of the investigation, he noted.

The gentleman is being far too kind to the media. It isn't competition that motivated the international media to rush to publish this story, but rather pure hatred. This was a malicious campaign to demonize and delegitimize the state of Israel, its military and people.

The civilian dead in Gaza constituted a far lower percentage of combat deaths than that committed by any other army in the world. I say with certainty that Israel has the most moral army in the world, along with America. Can anyone prove otherwise? I am so sick of the double standards against Israel, it being held under a microscope while there are wars around the world where thousands and even millions of civilians are wantonly targeted for massacre and genocide.

The Media's Anti-Israel Agenda

The media is engaged not in objectively disseminating facts coming out of the Middle East, but with an agenda of anti-Israel activism aiming to undermine Israel's fight against terrorism in every way they can, through outright lies and distortions, blood libels, whatever it takes. The msm's reporting about Israel cannot be trusted. As Melanie Phillips says at the end of the article, indeed the Guardian IS an evil newspaper, but unfortunately they are not alone.

The hamas terror group wages war against Israel, deliberately fires missiles at Israeli civilians, uses its own civilian population as human shields among numerous other war crimes. Recently hamas instituted sharia based punishments such as crucifixions and limb amputations. It has as its doctrine the destruction of Israel and the genocide of Jews. Yet the western powers seek to reward and legitimize hamas by conducting talks with it, pushing it to join a coalition government and lavishing it with billions of dollars although they claim the money won't go to hamas. On the other hand you have Israel, a responsible, free, democratic nation which has been the constant victim of terrorism and when fighting defensive wars goes out of its way to protect the lives of the enemy's civilian population, warning them before they strike, even if that means the terrorists are forewarned as a result. And it is Israel that finds itself increasingly put on the docket, demonized, delegitimized, isolated, its soldiers indicted for "war crimes" by foreign courts etc. I ask again, what is wrong with this picture? What accounts for this deviant set of circumstances? The world has gone completely mad.

The Guardian goes to Pallywood
Tuesday, 24th March 2009



Not to be outdone by the Ha’aretz blood libel, the Guardian today devotes a front page splash, two inside pages, three separate videos, a commentary by Seumas Milne and an editorial to what it claims is evidence from a special investigation by Clancy Chassay that Israel committed 'war crimes’ in Gaza in Operation Cast Lead by deliberately targeting civilians, using young boys as human shields and deliberately targeting ambulances and medical personnel and hospitals.

It presents these allegations as facts. It does so even though they are only allegations, unsupported by any evidence whatever. It does so even though the allegations are made by people with a proven track record of systematic lying to journalists and fabrication of stories and images. It does so even though such people either support Hamas or are controlled and schooled by Hamas to tell lies under pain of torture or death.

It does so without providing any verifiable information – full names, dates, specifics. It does so without making any mention of the extraordinary lengths to which the Israel Defence Force went in trying to avoid civilian casualties, by leafleting targeted houses to warn the inhabitants to get out and even calling them on their mobile phones to urge them to do so. It does so without acknowledging the fact that it was Hamas which used Gazan civilians as human shields – indeed, it dismisses this in a sentence by stating that Amnesty and Human Rights Watch found ‘no evidence’ that it had done so.

Hardly surprising since Amnesty and Human Rights Watch have repeatedly shown themselves to be wholly partisan in the Palestinian cause and viscerally prejudiced against Israel. But aren’t Guardian reporters supposed to be journalists rather than passive conduits of NGO propaganda? In his ‘month-long investigation’, didn’t investigative reporter Clancy Chassay himself come across any of the copious evidence that Hamas used Gazan civilians as human shields – indeed, effectively used the whole civilian population as either a collective hostage or missile fodder? Did special investigative reporter Chassay manage somehow not to see this, or this, or this, or this, or this evidence that Hamas was guilty prima facie of the war crime of repeatedly using civilians as a weapon of war?

Looking at this Hamas propaganda sicked up by the Guardian (and in a pale imitation, the similarly implausible tale in today’s Independent) it is blindingly obvious that, as so often before, Hamas has chosen to deflect attention from its own war crimes – the deliberate targeting of Israeli civilians and the use of Palestinian civilians as hostages, human shields and missile fodder – by claiming that it is instead Israel that is guilty of that very behaviour. And the evidence that the Guardian has presented as fact to support this claim turns out to be at best paper-thin and at worst demonstrably ridiculous.

Wilders Under Fire Again

People speaking out in defense of freedom and human rights and against oppression are being persecuted while fanatical islamists are free to march through the streets of European cities threatening to kill infidels and overthrow their countries. What is wrong with this picture?

The left is not merely giving moral support to the islamists as they wage war against the free world, but are actively engaged in aiding and abetting it. It is not only islam that needs to be defeated but so does the left, which is ultimately worse because without the help of these internal enemies, the muslims could not succeed in their cultural as well as physical jihad against us.

Once again Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders is the target of a legal jihad, this time by a French "human rights" group regarding Wilders speech in New York about islam. Why don't these "human rights" groups ever concern themselves with real human rights abuses in the muslim world?

“Wilders made statements about French Muslims, about Muslims in Paris and Marseilles, which incite to racial hatred,” says lawyer Yassine Bouzrou. He lodged the complaint on behalf of the organization, which is being studied by the public prosecution. If Wilders is found guilty, he can be sentenced for one year in prison.

Wilders was not aware of the complaint yesterday evening. “I hear this for the the first time,” he said. “The wold is becoming small with trials and procedures everywhere: from the Netherlands, Jordan and England to France. Dreadful. But I’ll naturally fight back judicially. They won’t prevail over me.”

Last week the PVV head signed an official appeal against the UK’s refusal to let him into the country.

The French complaint is based on Wilders’ speech in New York last September. “Paris is now surrounded by a ring of Muslim neighborhoods,” he said then. “Many neighbourhoods in France are no-go areas for women without head scarves.”

He called the riots in the suburbs in 2005 a “Muslim intifada”. Bouzrou came to the conclusion that the expressions are criminal. “Wilders says in that speech also that one in three French Muslims supports suicide attacks. With that he suggests that one in three French Muslims is a potential terrorist. Where he does he get all of this? How did he get ot it? Wilders makes serious accusations which are based on nothing.”

Bouzrou made the complaint for the French human rights organization ADDH. They work together with the Collective against Islamophobia in the fight against Muslim hatred.

Saudi Regime's Brutality Towards Women

There are those who say we should show respect toward the muslim world. I ask what have they done to deserve any respect whatsoever? Why should such a primitive, brutally misogynistic civilization, which denies basic human rights, be treated equally with our own?

Religious police in "moderate" saudi arabia dragged a woman by her hair down the stairs of a building all for merely being alone with an unrelated male. Just the sight of these fat, greasy ragheads in sunglasses and robes with all of that unearned wealth, makes me sick to my stomach. We need to become energy independent and finally render these filthy scumbag sheiks powerless.

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) — Visitors to a women’s job training center heard terrified screams — and rushed to see an agent of the religious police dragging a woman by her hair down the stairs of the building.

The woman had apparently run for shelter in the center after the religious police caught her alone in a car with a man she is not related to — a violation of Saudi Arabia’s strict gender segregation, one of the visitors, Nasreen Qattan, told the Associated Press.

Under that same segregation, the male agent should not have entered the all-women center — yet he still barged in and grabbed the woman.

The incident a week ago in the holy city of Mecca is the sort of heavy-handed behavior by the kingdom’s Islamic religious police that many Saudis hoped would end after King Abdullah in February appointed a new chief of the force, billed as a reformer.

But so far, there’s been little sign of change, and complaints against the religious police continue.

The Anti-Israel Lobby

There is a growing powerful and sinister movement afoot to sever our relationship with Israel in favor of closer relations with the arabs. Among those leading the anti-Israel lobby is john mearsheimer. Here is what he writes about the controversy over chas freeman:

Why does the lobby care so much about one appointment to an important, but not top leadership position? Here’s one reason: Freeman would have been responsible for the production of National Intelligence Estimates. Israel and its American supporters were outraged when the National Intelligence Council concluded in November 2007 that Iran was not building nuclear weapons, and they have worked assiduously to undermine that report ever since. The lobby wants to make sure that the next estimate of Iran’s nuclear capabilities reaches the opposite conclusion, and that would have been much less likely to happen with Freeman in charge. Better to have someone vetted by AIPAC running the show.



An even more important reason for the lobby to drive Freeman out of his job is the weakness of the case for America’s present policy towards Israel, which makes it imperative to silence or marginalise anyone who criticises the special relationship. If Freeman hadn’t been punished, others would see that one could talk critically about Israel and still have a successful career in Washington. And once you get an open and free-wheeling discussion about Israel, the special relationship will be in serious trouble.


Ted Belman of Israpundit observes correctly:
He ignores the fact that said intelligence report has been discredited by subsequent reports and findings and that AIPAC was right to oppose it or the need to have intelligence reports untainted by agenda.

This “special relationship” really bugs him while he ignores the special relationship with Saudi Arabia. The reason being that, in his opinion and in the opinion of like-minded people, the former is bad for the US and the later is good for the US. It all boils down to this. Judging from Obama’s moves to date, Obama would be included in this group.

So let me get this straight. According to mearsheimer and his ilk, It is a bad thing to have a friendship with a like-minded modern, stable, free, democratic country which contributes scientific and medical advancements to the world. But good to have a special relationship with a barbaric, dark ages regime which has “religious” police dragging women by the hair for being in the presence of an unrelated male, for dressing immodest, ie un-islamic, a country which allows girls to die in a burning building because their heads weren’t covered. A country which flogs, stones, beheads and amputates limbs as punishments. Basically saudi arabia is one the worst human rights violators on the planet. Not to mention the fact that the saudi royals fund mosques and madrassas around the world which incite hatred and murder against Americans as well as fund terror groups. And yet mearsheimer and company would have us believe this country’s so-called “friendship” is a plus for America. Such an obscene, perverse view of the world can only come from the likes of those with brain damage or more likely harboring extreme anti-Semitism. Regardless of all their denials, indeed Walt, Mearsheimer and like-minded people are anti-Semites.

Muslim Thugs Beat Up Minister

In England a courageous Pakistani born Christian Minister who dares to take on the muslim ummah on his television show, was beaten, his cross torn off and warned not to continue his program.

A Christian minister who has had heated arguments with Muslims on his TV Gospel show has been brutally attacked by three men who ripped off his cross and warned: ‘If you go back to the studio, we’ll break your legs.’

The Reverend Noble Samuel was driving to the studio when a car pulled over in front of him. A man got out and came over to ask him directions in Urdu.

Mr Samuel, based at Heston United Reformed Church, West London, said: ‘He put his hand into my window, which was half open, and grabbed my hair and opened the door.

He started slapping my face and punching my neck. He was trying to smash my head on the steering wheel.

Then he grabbed my cross and pulled it off and it fell on the floor. He was swearing. The other two men came from the car and took my laptop and Bible.’

The Metropolitan Police are treating it as a ‘faith hate’ assault and are hunting three Asian men.

In spite of the attack, Mr Samuel went ahead with his hour-long live Asian Gospel Show on the Venus satellite channel from studios in Wembley, North London. During the show the Muslim station owner Tahir Ali came on air to condemn the attack.

Pakistan-born Mr Samuel, 48, who was educated by Christian missionaries and moved to Britain 15 years ago, said that over the past few weeks he has received phone-in calls from people identifying themselves as Muslims who challenged his views.

‘They were having an argument with me,’ he said. ‘They were very aggressive in saying they did not agree with me. I said those are your views and these are my views.’

He said that he, his wife Louisa, 48, and his son Naveed, 19, now fear for their safety, and police have given them panic alarms. ‘I am frightened and depressed,’ he said. ‘My show is not confrontational.’

IDF Soldier Responds to Uproar

After having so many accusations against the IDF during the Gaza war proven to be false, for example the accusation that the IDF bombed a UN “school”, the phosporous charge; the international and domestic enemies of Israel have simply concocted new allegations to get Israeli soldiers tried for “war crimes” and have the state of Israel itself dragged through the mud and delegitimized. Israel’s muslim and leftist enemies are single minded and relentless in their determination to obliterate Israel either politically or militarily.

Here is an anonymous IDF soldier explaining combat conditions in Gaza and defending the conduct of his fellow soldiers.

The world looks at Israel under a microscope. No matter what they do, right or wrong, their actions are dissected and discussed. When we are acting as a moral army, we are accused of war crimes. When we defend ourselves, we are called Nazis. When we have to shoot at what is deemed a threat, we do so to protect not only our soldiers but the land of Israel. Why are we singled out for doing our job, protecting our people?

During Gaza we were under great restraint and did what no other army does. We warned our enemies who housed weapons, rockets and launchers prior to entry. We then gave verbal warning. We then would enter the house with warnings. Then we would allow the people to exit. We then had to give another warning, and then we proceeded to do our commands to find the enemy and the weapons.

There are things that go wrong in war, and when you have young soldiers, at 18. 19. and 20 years of age doing things and going places they never thought they would be, facing death in the face, there are things that can happen. But this is war. War is hell, so are 8,000 rockets fired into the South of Israel from Gaza hellish too. Amnesty International (AI) is not a consideration for us. We do not perform our jobs worrying about their "reports". They have done nothing to protect the lives of Jews or Israelis. They have put our soldiers at great risk of kidnapping and death by portraying us as the vile soldiers, while the Palestinians drug young children, strap remote control explosives on them and tell them to walk towards our troops, without even knowing they will be blown up or killed. Where is the Israeli and world press in exposing this issue? This is how our enemy works. Haaretz, AI and other major Israeli news outlets do not bother to tell this side of the story.

The IDF is composed of young men and women from all walks of life, no different than the US Marines or the US Army. There are heroes, there are ordinary men and women and there are bad eggs-just like in all military. We strive to rise above the fray, but when confronted with situations that no amount of training can prepare you for, human instinct can make you react. I would like to see the writer from Haaretz or AI stand in our shoes and see how they feel. We have been made to look weak in the Arab world due to our response during the Second Lebanese or Hezbollah War, and we are not going to repeat that again. We are highly trained to do our job, and we try to do the best we can without inflicting needless civilian casualties. But we have an enemy that is not identifiable. They wear street clothes, they mingle with families, they hide in hospital. This makes our job even more difficult.


We all would like peace, and would like to live with our neighbors. This cannot be a reality until the enemy acknowledges our right to exist and organizations like Amnesty International recognize our right to self defense and self determination.

This Week's Haveil Havalim

Edition #209 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is hosted by What War Zone.

Hugo Chavez Persecutes Jews

It is not at all an exaggeration to compare the hostile atmosphere for Jews in many countries today to that which existed in the 1930's. One such country in which Jews are being persecuted is Venezuela, where so far this year a Jewish community center was firebombed, and a synagogue was vandalized and religious objects desecrated by thugs linked to the marxist, pro-islamist chavez government. They also took off with computer hard drives containing databases with the names and addresses of Jews in Venezuela.

Now couple that with the Nazi-like plan of action published in the pro-Chavez digital outlet newspaper, Aporrea.org:
- publicly denouncing by name, the members of powerful Jewish groups in Venezuela, names of their companies and businesses in order to boycott them
- avoiding products, stores, supermarkets, restaurants, and where Kosher food is sold which either belongs or has links with 'Zionist Jews'
- questioning the existence of Jewish educational institutions
- shouting pro-Palestine and anti-Israel slogans at Jews on the street
- inviting anti-Zionist Jews living in Venezuela to publicly express their disassociation from 'Zionist war crimes' and the imposition of artificial State of Israel on Palestine
- nationalization of companies, confiscation of properties of those Jews who support the Zionist atrocities of the Nazi-State of Israel, and donate this property to the Palestinian victims of today's Holocaust
- sending all type of aid to Palestinians including weapons
- hacking pro-Zionist websites including governments or institutions that have relations with Israel
- organizing an international conference about the creation of the theocratic - Nazi state of Israel as a genocidal European colony, and about the myths and facts of the alleged Jewish Holocaust or Holohoax (a blackmailing industry)
- support the dissolution of the artificial State of Israel

Muslim "Professor" Suggests Using Anthrax to Mass Murder Americans

Filthy raghead Kuwaiti "professor" discusses the idea of a muslim jihadist smuggling four pounds of anthrax in a suitcase into the United States through Mexico and murdering 330,000 Americans. The only innovations these desert savages are capable of coming up with are new and improved ways of mass murdering infidels. This is the "moderate" Arab country America saved from saddam hussein. Perhaps we just need to hold a dialogue with the likes of professor raghead and try to address their grievances.

More False Accusations Against the IDF

Based on hearsay and rumors and without a shred of evidence, it is being reported that there were violations of the IDF's code of morality during Operation Cast Lead. It is claimed that soldiers shot palestinian civilians for no reason and that the soldiers destroyed property. Supposedly these accounts come from the testimony of Israeli soldiers who witnessed these actions. Most other IDF soldiers are refuting these allegations. But no matter, just these charges being made and reported in the international press, regardless of their accuracy, will be enough to ignite another round of worldwide anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hysteria, not that these monsters need an excuse. This is what they live for.

In the court of international opinion Israel is guilty until proven innocent and not even then. All one has to do is simply make an accusation against Israel and it becomes automatic "fact", no actual proof is required. The scoundrels making these claims know this to be the case and for some sick reason seek to harm their own country.

As for the palestinians, few are innocent, they voted for and support hamas. As far as I'm concerned the entire Gaza strip should have been carpet bombed. I do not have sympathy for these people. If you are going to be accused of atrocities anyway, even as you go out of your way to protect enemy civilians at the expense of your own soldiers, you might just as well be as ruthless as you are accused of. Perhaps its in Israel's best interest to start becoming as vicious toward its enemies as its enemies are toward Israel. If Israel were more feared, it would be more respected and left alone not only by the arabs but by the international community which would not want to provoke an Israel they perceived as crazy. Just as the international community doesn't mess with the muslims.

It hasn't paid for Israel to be better than its enemies, to have far higher standards of conduct. The more evil you are, the more you are rewarded. We see how its paying off for the muslims.

The testimonies by soldiers, leaked to the newspapers Maariv and Haaretz, appeared in a journal published by a military preparatory course at the Oranim Academic College in the northern town of Tivon. The newspapers promised to release more such anecdotal accounts on Friday, without saying how many.

The academy's director, Dany Zamir, told Israel Radio, "Those were very harsh testimonies about unjustified shooting of civilians and destruction of property that conveyed an atmosphere in which one feels entitled to use unrestricted force against Palestinians."

The revelations caused an immediate uproar here, with some soldiers and reservists saying they did not recognize the stories being told as accurate.

Muslim Nazi Cleric Admits Perpetual Islamic War Against Jews

An Egyptian cleric makes it abundantly clear that regardless of whether a palestinian state is created, the muslim war to obliterate the Jewish people and Israel will continue. Many of us have been trying to explain to dimwitted liberals to no avail, that the fight against Israel is not a territorial conflict but a religious mandate for muslims to kill Jews. The muslim grievance against Israel is not about specific Israeli actions, but rather the very existence of Israel as a Jewish state. Hatred of Jews goes back to the origins of islam. Jews are referred to as apes and pigs in the koran and hadiths. When will liberals get it?

Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Egyptian cleric Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on January 17, 2009.

"You Must Believe That We Will Fight, Defeat, and Annihilate Them, Until Not a Single Jew Remains on the Face of the Earth"

Muhammad Hussein Ya’qoub: "If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. The Jews are infidels - not because I say so, and not because they are killing Muslims, but because Allah said: 'The Jews say that Uzair is the son of Allah, and the Christians say that Christ is the son of Allah. These are the words from their mouths. They imitate the sayings of the disbelievers before. May Allah fight them. How deluded they are.' It is Allah who said that they are infidels.

"Your belief regarding the Jews should be, first, that they are infidels, and second, that they are enemies. They are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing. Allah said: 'You shall find the strongest men in enmity to the disbelievers [sic] to be the Jews and the polytheists.' Third, you must believe that the Jews will never stop fighting and killing us. They [fight] not for the sake of land and security, as they claim, but for the sake of their religion: 'And they will not cease fighting you until they turn you back you’re your religion, if they can.'

"This is it. We must believe that our fighting with the Jews is eternal, and it will not end until the final battle - and this is the fourth point. You must believe that we will fight, defeat, and annihilate them, until not a single Jew remains on the face of the Earth."


"As For You Jews - The Curse of Allah Upon You... You Pigs of the Earth! You Kill the Muslims With That Cold Pig [Blood] Of Yours"

"It is not me who says so. The Prophet said: 'Judgment Day will not come until you fight the Jews and kill them. The Jews will hide behind stones and trees, and the stones and tree will call: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him - except for the Gharqad tree, which is the tree of the Jews.' I have heard that they are planting many of these trees now.

[...]

"As for you Jews - the curse of Allah upon you. The curse of Allah upon you, whose ancestors were apes and pigs. You Jews have sown hatred in our hearts, and we have bequeathed it to our children and grandchildren. You will not survive as long as a single one of us remains.

[...]

"Oh Jews, may the curse of Allah be upon you. Oh Jews... Oh Allah, bring Your wrath, punishment, and torment down upon them. Allah, we pray that you transform them again, and make the Muslims rejoice again in seeing them as apes and pigs. You pigs of the earth! You pigs of the earth! You kill the Muslims with that cold pig [blood] of yours."

Double Standard on Campus

Controversy ensues at the University of Maryland as the result of some anti-Palestinian posters displayed around campus and Palestinian students pretend to feel threatened.

This is so typical of muslims to play the victim card whenever anyone responds to their aggression. They go around displaying the most vile anti-Semitic material depicting Israelis and Jews as baby killers, nazis, and an untold number of blood libels and call it free speech and simply "criticism" of Israel. So when finally pro-Israel students fight back and merely depict the truth about palestinian society derived from actual photographs, not cartoons, it is called "hate" speech and the poor arab and muslim students whine about their feelings being hurt and how "threatened" it makes them feel. That is after muslim and leftist students and faculty over the last several years have created an atmosphere for Jewish, pro-Israel and conservative students uncomfortable and unwelcoming on campus to say the least. In many cases of course, it has been downright overtly hostile and threatening with incidents of physical violence against Jewish and other pro-Israel students.

University of Maryland Palestinian students and supporters were confronted with malevolent opposition Tuesday in the form of posters bearing vivid anti-Palestine propaganda that students said made them feel threatened, though it did not stop Palestinian Solidarity Week from continuing Wednesday night.


University officials and University Police are conducting ongoing investigations into the incident, though they do not know who is responsible for making the posters. The event prompted a campuswide e-mail from university President Dan Mote yesterday in which he encouraged an "open dialogue" that promotes tolerance.

One such flier depicted a woman, wearing a traditional Muslim burqa and holding an AK-47 in one hand and a bomb-toting baby in the other. "What did she teach her child today?" was written above the picture.

This poster and others like it were found after Tuesday's "What would MLK Say About Gaza?" event, which was hosted by several student organizations.

"We were expecting some disagreement, but we never expected Islamophobicmessages," said senior government and politics and Spanish major Sana Javed, who is also a member of the Muslim Students' Association. "We don't know where it's coming from, so we can't really point any fingers. It could get worse. I'm really appalled."

...Senior dietetics major Gisica Abdallah was at Tuesday's event - which was held in Jimenez Hall - when her friends brought the posters to her attention. She initially dismissed them as a one-time thing, but when she got to McKeldin Library, she noticed signs covering the outside and lobby of the building.

"They were everywhere," Abdallah said. "The hatred that was portrayed, that was the most hurtful thing."

...The fliers, which were in violation of the university's policy on free speech, are also being condemned by some Jewish student organizations as well as the university's Hillel chapter, who is sending out messages condemning the fliers.

"There's such a thing as free speech," Clement said. "But when you post things anonymously and make others feel threatened, that's not free speech."

Censoring Critics of Muslim Anti-Semitism in the UN

David Littman is shut down in the Human Rights Council as he speaks about muslim anti-Semitism. In the depraved world view of the UN, criticizing muslim physical and verbal abuse of non-muslims is forbidden while the muslim attackers themselves are given a free pass and even celebrated.

Journalists Admit Hostility Toward Israel

In case you were living in a cloud and were unaware of the media's anti-Israel bias, this Maariv interview with Italian journalist Lorenzo Cremonesi should erase any doubt. Cremonesi, writing for the newspaper Corriere della Sera reported that the Gaza death toll was not nearly as high as was claimed. While most of the rest of the western media were reporting hamas claims of casualty figures at face value, Cremonesi actually did the job of a real journalist and sought out the truth. Here is part of the interview in which journalists basically acknowledge that they have no interest in providing the truth when it comes to the Middle East, but rather their only agenda is to create a narrative which demonizes Israel.

"After the rest of the journalists entered the strip," he said, "I found they were angry with me. They asked me; why are you serving the Israelis? What bothered them was not the quality of the information I provided. I felt that their anger and need to emphasize Palestinian suffering, were fueled by the fact that they had been prevented from entering [Gaza]."

Obama Administration Snubs Gen. Ashkenazi

We have the perverse spectacle of the Obama administration embracing hamas and Iran while shunning Israeli officials. Well its clear Israel is on its own and should just attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, let the chips fall where they may. They are left with no other option. The obama administration is determined to stay out of the way of Iran potentially perpetrating a nuclear holocaust on Israel. In the eyes of this administration, the EU and leftists, this would solve the problems in the Middle East. Since they can’t control 1 billion muslims, they figure they’ll sacrifice the six million Jews in the desert in the mistaken belief that the jihadists will leave them alone. It was Winston Churchill who said an appeaser is someone who feeds the crocodile thinking he will be eaten last.

Israel’s visiting chief of staff finds doors closed in Obama’s Washington

Ashkenazi left Washington hurriedly, ostensibly to be at a Cabinet meeting to discuss Shalit. Perhaps this is the real reason.

WORLD TRIBUNE

WASHINGTON — Last year, Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi had no problem setting up meetings with top officials in the U.S. government.

On his current trip to Washington, Ashkenazi sought to meet the administration of President Barack Obama, but most officials were unavailable.

Diplomatic sources said Ashkenazi failed to obtain access to any Cabinet member, including Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The Israeli military chief, who sought to discuss the Iranian nuclear threat, won’t even meet his counterpart, Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“The administration is sending a very clear message to Israel, and this is we want to talk about Palestine and not Iran,” a diplomat who has been following U.S.-Israel relations said.

On March 12, Ashkenazi left for a five-day visit to the United States meant to lobby the Obama administration to abandon the planned U.S. dialogue with Iran. Ashkenazi, scheduled to meet with the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, was expected to have brought new Israeli intelligence on Iran’s nuclear weapons and missile programs.

But the diplomatic sources said the administration made it clear that nobody in a policy-making position was available to sit with Ashkenazi. This included the president, Vice President Joseph Biden, Gates, National Intelligence director Dennis Blair or Mullen.

Ashkenazi has obtained a meeting with National Security Advisor James Jones. But the sources said the meeting would focus on U.S. demands for Israel to ease military restrictions in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

“The Obama administration believes that Israel is as much or more of a problem as it is an ally, at least until Israel’s disagreements with its neighbors are resolved,” former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, said.

Bolton envisioned that the White House would pressure Israel to legitimize Hamas and Hizbullah. At the same time, he said, Obama would continue to woo Iran.

Already, economic and diplomatic advisers to Obama have urged the president to launch a U.S. dialogue with Hamas. The US/Middle East Project, which includes such Obama supporters as former Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Sen. Chuck Hagel, was said to have elicited a promise from Obama to listen to any proposals made by Hamas.

Caroline Glick discusses the growing power of the anti-Israel lobby in Washington. In conclusion she writes:

THE SECOND disturbing development exposed by Freeman`s appointment is the emergence of a very committed and powerful anti-Israel lobby in Washington. In the past, while anti-Israel politicians, policy-makers and opinion-shapers were accepted in Washington, they would not have felt comfortable brandishing their anti-Israel positions as a qualifying credential for high position. Freeman`s appointment shows that this is no longer the case. Today in Washington, there are powerful circles of political players for whom a person`s anti-Israel bona fides are his strongest suit.

In the weeks since Freeman`s appointment first came under scrutiny, his defenders have highlighted his hatred of Israel as the reason for their support for him. Just as Pincus`s post-mortem write-up of Freeman`s appointment and resignation barely mentioned his ties to Saudi Arabia and China, and focused on Jews who opposed his appointment, so in recent weeks, his defenders - both non-Jewish and Jewish - have highlighted his hatred of Israel and its American supporters as the primary reason for defending it. The likes of Steven Walt, M.J. Rosenberg and Matthew Iglesias didn`t try to explain why Freeman was right to support the suppression of freedom in China. They didn`t support his claim that the Saudi king is among the most profound and thoughtful leaders in the world. They didn`t repeat his assertion that the US had the September 11 attacks coming to it.

They felt that the fact that he raised the hackles of Americans who support Israel was reason enough to support him. Whether his views on other issues are reasonable or not was of no interest to them.

From September 11, to Russia`s invasion of Georgia, from Hamas`s victory in the 2006 Palestinian elections to the 2007 National Intelligence Estimate that claimed Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003, it is clear that in recent years, the US intelligence community has regularly substituted wishful thinking for true analysis. Freeman`s appointment and the emergence of the anti-Israel lobby as a major force in Washington policy circles show that turning the US away from Israel has become a key component of that wishful thinking.

Obama to Embrace the muslim Brotherhood

We are being sold-out by our government at every level, as they whitewash the truth about islam, prepare to shred our constitution and pave the way for the introduction of sharia in America. Treason is being committed at the highest levels of our government.

Shariah’s Brotherhood

By Frank Gaffney, Jr., Center for Security Policy

On Friday, President Obama reiterated for the umpteenth time his determination to develop a “new relationship” with the Muslim world. On this occasion, the audience were the leaders of Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Unfortunately, it increasingly appears that, in so doing, he will be embracing the agenda of the Muslim Brotherhood - an organization dedicated to promoting the theo-political-legal program authoritative Islam calls Shariah and that has the self-described mission of “destroying Western civilization from within.”

As part of Mr. Obama’s “Respect Islam” campaign, he will travel to Turkey in early April. While there, he will not only pay tribute to an Islamist government that has systematically wrested every institution from the secular tradition of Ataturk and put the country squarely on the path to Islamification. He will also participate in something called the “Alliance of Civilizations.”

The Alliance is a UN-sponsored affair that reflects - as, increasingly do most things the United Nations is involved in - the views of the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC). The OIC is made up of 57 Muslim-majority nations. Thanks to support from Saudi Arabia and its proxies, the Muslim Brotherhood has become a driving force within the Conference and their agendas largely coincide.

For example, in 2005 a communiqué issued after a summit in Mecca declared: “The Conference underlined the need to collectively endeavor to reflect the noble Islamic values, counter Islamophobia, defamation of Islam and its values and desecration of Islamic holy sites, and to effectively coordinate with States as well as regional and international institutions and organizations to urge them to criminalize this phenomenon as a form of racism.”

Ominously, as part of its bid to “criminalize” Islamophobia, the OIC is seeking “deterrent punishments.” It insists that not only freedom of expression but all human rights be circumscribed by the OIC’s 1990 Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, which concludes with the caveat that, “All the rights and freedoms stipulated in this Declaration are subject to the Islamic Shariah.” Translation: Liberties enshrined in the UN’s foundational Universal Declaration of Human Rights are largely rendered null and void.

The demand that no criticism of Islam be permitted is the preeminent feature of the Muslim Brotherhood’s efforts in the West. In fact, it is but the leading edge of the Brothers’ bid to suppress public awareness of the threat posed by their program in societies that pride themselves on religious tolerance, thereby facilitating seditious penetration and influence operations by the Shariah-adherent.

A playbook for the latter can be found in a publication issued last Fall by the U.S.-Muslim Engagement Project that is being aggressively promoted to the Obama administration and Congress by a number of its non-Muslim participants. Notably, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright recently effusively presented the Project’s book entitled Changing Course: A New Direction for U.S. Relations with the Muslim World to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Former Congressman Vin Weber did the same at Grover Norquist’s weekly meeting of conservative activists last week.

CIA Predicts the Demise of Israel

A CIA report predicts that Israel won't survive beyond the next 20 years. It sounds like wishful thinking on the part of some members of the intelligence community.

A study conducted by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has cast doubt over Israel’s survival beyond the next 20 years.

The CIA report predicts “an inexorable movement away from a two-state to a one-state solution, as the most viable model based on democratic principles of full equality that sheds the looming specter of colonial Apartheid while allowing for the return of the 1947/1948 and 1967 refugees. The latter being the precondition for sustainable peace in the region.”

The study, which has been made available only to a certain number of individuals, further forecasts the return of all Palestinian refugees to the occupied territories, and the exodus of two million Israeli - who would move to the US in the next fifteen years.

“There is over 500,000 Israelis with American passports and more than 300,000 living in the area of just California,” International lawyer Franklin Lamb said in an interview with Press TV on Friday, adding that those who do not have American or western passport, have already applied for them.

That sounds like an extraordinarily high number. But if true, the end of Israel would become a self-fulfilling prophesy.

“So I think the handwriting at least among the public in Israel is on the wall…[which] suggests history will reject the colonial enterprise sooner or later,” Lamb stressed.

He said CIA, in its report, alludes to the unexpectedly quick fall of the apartheid government in South Africa and recalls the disintegration of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s, suggesting the end to the dream of an ‘Israeli land’ would happen ‘way sooner’ than later.

What kind of bullshit is this? Israel is not a colonial enterprise. Jews are the indigenous people of Israel. And Israel is most certainly not an apartheid state, however every other country in the Middle East is, so they deserve to be the countries that fall. What is it in the perverse mindset of people in the intelligence and foreign policy establishment which makes them demonize Israel, the only free and democratic country in the region, the only one which is NOT an apartheid state, while cozying up to the real apartheid states, dicatorships, terror states in the region?

EU Warns Bibi

The Europeans think they have the right to boss Israel around. And I thought that the Zionists are in control of western governments, so we are told ad nauseum. Here is Javier Solana giving Benjamin Netanyahu an ultimatum:

The European Union urged Netanyahu to craft a government that embraces the long-standing goal of an independent Palestinian state living side by side with Israel — signaling that the appointment of Lieberman as foreign minister would be seen in Europe as a setback to Middle East peace efforts.

"Let me say very clearly that the way the European Union will relate to an (Israeli) government that is not committed to a two-state solution will be very, very different," Javier Solana, the EU's foreign and security affairs chief, said Sunday.

Who the fuck are these eurotrash to dictate to Israel, a sovereign country, what kind of government it should co-opt, thereby usurping the will of the Israeli electorate? Would they dare make these demands of any muslim country?

My response would be to tell solana to go fuck himself. Why is it that these eurotrash are so anxious to dialogue with hamas, even with its genocidal aims, yet finds Lieberman to “extreme” to deal with? Wouldn’t it be great if the west were at least as tough on hamas as it is with Israel. This is the perverse state of affairs we find ourselves in, where Israel gets bullied by the west, while hamas terrorists get lavished with billions in western aid.

Ethiopian Immigrant in the Israeli Knesset

Here's the story of an Ethiopian immigrant to Israel who now sits in the Knesset. I wonder how that is possible in the "racist" "apartheid" state of Israel. Meanwhile the truly racist arabs are slaughtering blacks in the Sudan. This is why the left is so repulsive and why I have such contempt for them. They spread vicious lies about Israel, falsely accusing it of all sorts of crimes against humanity while remaining silent about the very real atrocities perpetrated by arab and muslim states. And then they object when you call them anti-Semites.

Former Officials Align Against Israel

A bipartisan group of former officials is attempting to influence Obama into have a dialogue with hamas. That effort shouldn't be too difficult since Obama is already inclined toward such an outlook. None of these cretins will be suffering the consequences of such a dangerous policy of appeasing hamas. They won’t be the ones who will have rockets fired at them and other terrorist attacks. And why is Paul Volker sticking his nose in foreign policy anyway since he deals in the area of economics? And with regards to brzezinsky, his time as foreign policy advisor in the Carter administration was an unmitigated disaster, from facilitating the fall of the shah and the arrival of the ayatollahs, culminating in the Iran hostage crisis. Why would a president take advise about the Middle East from him? But of course this is Obama we are talking about so its to be expected. Why don’t these former officials crawl back under the rocks from which they came?

WASHINGTON - Nine former senior US officials and one current adviser are urging the Obama administration to talk with leaders of Hamas to determine whether the militant group can be persuaded to disarm and join a peaceful Palestinian government, a major departure from current US policy.


The bipartisan group, which includes economic recovery adviser Paul A. Volcker and former national security advisers Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski, made the recommendation in a letter handed to Obama days before he took office, according to Scowcroft.

The group is preparing to meet this weekend to decide when to release a report outlining a proposed US agenda for talks aimed at bringing all Palestinian factions into the Mid east peace process, according to Henry Siegman, the president of the US/Middle East Project, who brought the former officials together and said the White House promised the group an opportunity to make its case in person to Obama.

Talking to Hamas, which the State Department has designated a terrorist organization, would mark a dramatic reversal for the US government. Longstanding US policy has stipulated that before engaging in any talks, Hamas must renounce violence, recognize Israel, and agree to all previous agreements signed by Palestinian negotiators.

"I see no reason not to talk to Hamas," said Scowcroft, who was national security adviser to President George H.W. Bush.

Siegman said the letter, which was handed to Obama by Volcker but has not been made public, said the administration should "at least explore the possibility" that Hamas, which took control of the Palestinian territory of Gaza after elections in 2006, might be willing to transition into a purely political party and join with its rival, Fatah, which holds the Palestinian presidency in the West Bank.

The White House did not respond immediately last night to requests for comment on the letter. Volcker was unavailable for comment.

The islamic, Leftist, Neo-nazi Alliance

More on the hideous spectacle that occurred during the Davis Cup in Sweden which saw an alliance of muslims, communists, neo-nazis and yes, even feminists, rioting against Israel and trying to prevent the Israeli team from competing. Why are these so-called "feminists" aligning themselves with the most virulently misogynist creatures on the planet? That of course being the islamofascists. I hope they enjoy having their clitorises cut out some day and wearing burkas. Jew-hatred brings about strange alliances and motivates one to put aside their own self-preservation. I shake my head in wonder over why the world is against the Jewish people who contribute a great deal to mankind in the realms of art, science and medicine, and instead side with those who contribute nothing but bloodshed.

Last Saturday, roughly a month after the mob met Jews off Malmö’s main square, the city was again shaken by riots. Seven thousand activists gathered to stop a Davis Cup match between Sweden and Israel, and the demonstration march was also a manifestation of the ideological confusion that has become the trademark of the Swedish pro-Palestinian movement. Hamas flags and headbands could be spotted next to banners supporting communist groups and feminist causes.

The protesters were met by the largest Swedish riot squad since the anti-globalization riots convulsed the city of Gothenburg in 2001. In order to take on radical Islamists, left-wing extremists, and a small group of neo-Nazis that had announced that they too wanted to show their resentment toward Israel, the Swedish police prepared with 1,000 officers, helicopters, police vehicles on loan from neighboring Denmark, and a platoon of “dialogue officers.” Dressed in yellow vests, the specially educated dialogue police officers were on hand to sooth the violent extremists. But despite the preparation, the police could not prevent rioting.

On their end, left-wing Swedish politicians worked to grant legitimacy to the protests. After war broke out in Gaza, a majority in the local Malmö council decided that no audience would be allowed at the Davis Cup games between Sweden and Israel. The representative of the Left Party (as the Communist Party was rechristened in 1990) made it clear that the decision was due to Israel’s “genocide” against the people of Gaza.

The popular mayor of Malmö, Ilmar Reepalu, who is often referred to by the nickname “Malmö’s strong man,” is one of the most influential figures of the Social Democratic Party. He told the assembled media before the match that, were it up to him, Israel wouldn’t be allowed to participate at all. “This is not a match against just anyone,” he explained. “It is a match against the state of Israel.”

Rot in hell, you filthy mutant.

Roman Catholic Chapel Celebrates mohammed

We should expect religious leaders in the west to be at the forefront in fighting islamization. Instead they also cower in fear and betray their flocks by submitting to islam. Citizens throughout the west are being betrayed by our "leadership" at every level, whether it be political, religious or business. In the latest bout of insanity, a Roman Catholic chapel in England celebrated the birthday of mass murdering pedophile mohammed. Naturally Catholics are outraged at this latest act of dhimmitude and treachery by their church leaders. Can you even imagine a mosque celebrating Christmas?

With the Vatican promoting Islamic finance, this is hardly a surprise. The dhimmi elements in the Roman Catholic hierarchy appear to be quite firmly entrenched.

"Archbishop Nichols defends use of chapel for event marking Mohammed's birthday," by Damian Thompson in his Telegraph blog, March 12 (thanks to Tom):
The Archbishop of Birmingham, Vincent Nichols, has defended the use of a Catholic university college chapel for an event marking the birthday of Mohammed. Unbelieveable, I know. But here it is:
In a statement issued today, Thursday 12 March, Peter Jennings, Press Secretary to the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Birmingham, and the Archdiocese of Birmingham, said: "The chapel at Newman University College, Birmingham, was properly prepared for this event which consisted of two talks and a discussion of an interfaith nature."

Mr Jennings added: "Christian/Muslin [sic] dialogue is an important part of the Catholic Church's agenda. College authorities were fully aware of what was taking place."

Some Brits Regain Their Cojones

There comes a time when one reaches a saturation point. Perhaps that time has come for the Brits with regard to the hostile muslim fifth column. Here is a video of a crowd of patriotic Brits chasing and shouting down muslims who were protesting a homecoming for British soldiers. Good for them. It's about time the muslims ran away in fear. The west has been overly tolerant for a very long time and this sends a message to muslims that they have pushed too far and we are about to push back. It's time that they fear us.



h/t Islam in Action

"Honor" Killing in Germany

When muslims immigrate to the west, they bring along with them their barbaric practices. They have no interest in assimilating and abiding by our laws and mores. A young Turkish woman in Germany was brutally murdered because she had the temerity to love a man that wasn't chosen for her, and to top it off, she was pregnant with his child. Raghead man believes that his wife or daughter is his property with no free will of her own and therefore he believes he has the right to murder her over some perceived dishonor. Women living in western countries should expect to be protected by our laws. But because of political correctness on the part of the authorities, no action is taken to protect women and girls in islamic families who are endangered. The islamists and liberals would scream that its an affront to their culture to interfere. Liberals believe that raghead men cannot be responsible for their violent actions because it is the way of their culture and they can't be expected to measure up to our western moral standards. Where are the voices of western feminists? Why do they not care what is happening to muslim women and girls even within their own borders?

Honor killing in Germany: Girl's face "beaten beyond recognition"



She loved the wrong man, and should have submitted to an arranged marriage. Google translation of "Erschlagen, weil sie den falschen Mann liebte," from Politically Incorrect, March 11 (thanks to Pamela):
The young Turkish woman was beaten to death with a stick, her face unrecognizable, because she loved the wrong man and was pregnant with his child. Finally her parents searched for another man for her. She should have a traditional arranged marriage like her sister.

There is no trace of the attacker, but her boyfriend Altin P. age 25 complains: "She must die, because she wanted to live like a normal woman!" An honor killing? That is what her acquaintances believe.

Muslim Community Rallies Around Suspected Terrorist

So much for the fallacy of the "moderate" muslim. Muslims are constantly complaining and whining that they are being stereotyped and that most of them oppose terrorism. Yet when push comes to shove, they consistently, without fail, rally around fellow muslims charged with terrorism rather than condemning them. So long as this attitude persists, as far as I'm concerned, ALL muslims should be looked upon with suspicion until they prove otherwise. And for those who would regard that as an appalling concept, the muslim community has given us no reason to trust them. Here is just one more example.

Muslim community rallies behind Sudbury man charged by the FBI Mehanna is awaiting trial.

By Milton J. Valencia


To friends and family, he was a maturing leader in the Muslim community, a passionate writer who was departing for Saudi Arabia for a career as a pharmacist. But the arrest of Tariq Mehanna in November, as he was about to board a plane at Logan International Airport for his new life in the Middle East, has cast the 26-year-old in darker terms, as a liar supporting and associating with terrorists. Discuss

With an indictment in federal court, the Sudbury man faces a maximum sentence of eight years in prison on charges of lying to investigators in a terrorism inquiry. But a community of supporters has rallied around him, questioning how Mehanna could have been ensnared in a federal case and whether he is being used a pawn in the FBI's war on terrorism.

"They're kind of painting the wrong picture of the Muslim community," said S. Ahmad Zamanian of Houston, a friend of Mehanna's. "Anyone who has met Tariq . . . would all tell you that this man is far removed from anyone's definition of a terrorist."

Mehanna has been released pending trial after his parents posted more than $1 million in surety, including their sprawling Sudbury home. His lawyers, led by J.W. Carney Jr. of Boston, are challenging the case.

But he is also fighting a separate battle to shed a stigma that has shadowed him since his arrest, as he faces scrutiny over his blog postings, his acquaintances, and his associations with people such as Daniel Maldonado, who later became the first American charged with terrorism activities in Somalia.

Just as often as Mehanna's friends have defended him, others have referred to him as an "Al Qaeda blogger." His interpretations of Arabic passages - seen as poetic by some - have been taken by critics as a promotion of Islamic fundamentalism.

"You can bet that the FBI arrest on relatively minor charges was taken because there was a reasonable fear that Mehanna was leaving the country to join or further support the jihad himself," said a blogger known as Rusty Shackleford, on the popular Jawa Report website he runs that monitors terrorism investigations.

Citing the ongoing case, the FBI and federal prosecutors would not comment for this article, only referring to the federal indictment.

It is clear that Mehanna did not help his case by openly supporting controversial figures such as Aafia Siddiqui, the Pakistani woman who was on the FBI's Most Wanted List before she was arrested last year on charges of shooting at a US soldier in Afghanistan. A 1995 MIT graduate, Siddiqui reportedly established ties with Al Qaeda during her time in Boston.

In another example of questionable associations, some of the inspiration for Mehanna's writings were prominent fundamentalist figures such as Abdullah Azzam and Sayyid Qutb, who are considered significant influences by Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood, a fundamentalist movement.

Islamization Must Be Ruthlessly Resisted

We must let raghead men know that we will not cover ourselves, we will not allow ourselves to be treated as chattel, raped, stoned, flogged or genitally mutilated. Fortunately a great many Americans have guns, so we are able to protect ourselves from being victimized by the jihadists the way Europe is. This is why the obamabot leftist collaborators with the islamo-nazis are anxious to create gun laws so that we have no means of defense. If anyone has a problem with my politically incorrect language, I really don't care anymore. I'm not the least bit concerned about being perceived as a bigot. We are in the midst of WW3 and our freedom and way of life are at stake. There's no room for niceties.

Sharia Mortgages

The state of Minnesota is providing discriminatory sharia compliant mortgages to muslims. Why aren't liberals screaming about the separation of religion and state as well as the discrimination by the state against non-muslims?

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - For many Minnesota Muslims, it's been virtually impossible to buy a home, because Islamic law forbids the paying or charging of interest. To help close the home ownership gap among Muslim immigrants, the state's housing agency has launched a new program offering Islamic mortgages.

Islamic law does make exceptions to the ban on interest, if one's family is at stake. But the exceptions are open to interpretation and for many observant Muslims, conventional mortgages are strictly taboo.

Nawawi Sheikh is one of them. The Somali-American said he and his wife just couldn't go against their beliefs, even if it meant giving up their dream of owning a home. Still, he grew tired of moving from one rented apartment to another.

"One thing I hated was moving. I don't like to move all the time," he said.

Too damn bad. If it goes against your religious beliefs to do business the American way, then you go without owning a home or better yet, return to the islamic sharia ruled country you came from. We should not be accommodating the cultural practices and religious beliefs of people who have chosen to come here. It should be up to them to assimilate into our country. But why would they when dhimmi politicians and business owners are all too willing to cater to them.

"It is great news for the country, and it really sends a great signal that the United States is our country," he said.

That's a frightening prospect. The day that America is their country means that it no longer is ours. Devout muslims can never be loyal Americans since their loyalty lies with the islamic ummah. So by definition, to be an observant muslim is to be an enemy of America.

Elderly Woman Sentenced to 40 Lashes in saudi arabia

In the backward, misogynist seventh century saudi kingdom, a 75 year old woman was sentenced by a court to 40 lashes for having two unrelated men in her house. Are you proud of your buddies, freeman? If it was up to me, muslims around the world would be praying five times a day to a crater in the Mecca desert. What a horrible, useless shit hole saudi arabia is.

(CNN) -- A Saudi Arabian court has sentenced a 75-year-old Syrian woman to 40 lashes, four months imprisonment and deportation from the kingdom for having two unrelated men in her house, according to local media reports.

According to the Saudi daily newspaper Al-Watan, troubles for the woman, Khamisa Mohammed Sawadi, began last year when a member of the religious police entered her house in the city of Al-Chamli and found her with two unrelated men, "Fahd" and "Hadian."

Fahd told the policeman he had the right to be there, because Sawadi had breast-fed him as a baby and was therefore considered to be a son to her in Islam, according to Al-Watan. Fahd, 24, added that his friend Hadian was escorting him as he delivered bread for the elderly woman. The policeman then arrested both men.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam called Wahhabism and punishes unrelated men and women who are caught mingling.

The Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, feared by many Saudis, is made up of several thousand religious policemen charged with duties such as enforcing dress codes, prayer times and segregation of the sexes. Under Saudi law, women face many restrictions, including a strict dress code and a ban on driving. Women also need to have a man's permission to travel.

Freeman Withdraws

As charles freeman withdrew himself from consideration for the position of chairman of the NIC, he made sure to take parting shots at supporters of Israel who he accused of "smearing" him for simply stating his record as a shill for saudi arabia and China.

I have concluded that the barrage of libelous distortions of my record would not cease upon my entry into office. The effort to smear me and to destroy my credibility would instead continue. I do not believe the National Intelligence Council could function effectively while its chair was under constant attack by unscrupulous people with a passionate attachment to the views of a political faction in a foreign country. I agreed to chair the NIC to strengthen it and protect it against politicization, not to introduce it to efforts by a special interest group to assert control over it through a protracted political campaign.

The pot calling the kettle black. This from an unscrupulous man with a passionate attachment to a foreign country. In his case saudi arabia. The people who opposed freeman are the ones trying to protect the NIC against politicization from arab special interests who seek to assert control over it. It's likely that the real reason freeman withdrew is because his financial dealings were about to be investigated.

The libels on me and their easily traceable email trails show conclusively that there is a powerful lobby determined to prevent any view other than its own from being aired, still less to factor in American understanding of trends and events in the Middle East. The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth. The aim of this Lobby is control of the policy process through the exercise of a veto over the appointment of people who dispute the wisdom of its views, the substitution of political correctness for analysis, and the exclusion of any and all options for decision by Americans and our government other than those that it favors.

This is an apt description for freeman's own agenda. Those who scream the loudest about the undue influence of a sinister Israel lobby, are themselves deeply entrenched members of the arab lobby. It is freeman and his powerful arab lobby which is determined to prevent any view other than its own form being aired, which seeks control of the policy process and substitutes political correctness for analysis and the exclusion of any and all options for decision by Americans and our government other than those that it favors.

Those who have sought to impugn my character are uninterested in any rebuttal that I or anyone else might make.

He won't rebut his critics because he has no legitimate defense for his repugnant role as propagandist for the saudi and Chinese regimes.

Back during the first Gulf war, freeman actually was concerned that the poor cash strapped saudi oil rich potentates couldn't afford to pay the freight for their own defense and urged James Baker not to press them for too much.

From the start, they [the Saudis] were always advocates fro the massive use of force. We knew that if it came to war, permission to launch from Saudi bases would be automatic. And we suspected that the King was also willing to bear any burden asked by his American benefactors. Even so, I was urged by our ambassador, Chas Freeman, to go easy on the numbers. "They're strapped for money," he told me before the meeting. "Don't press for too much right now." I disagreed. (p. 289)


Our ambassador to Saudi Arabia, Chas Freeman, suggested to me that perhaps we shouldn't ask quite so much of the Saudis. As a result of their previous commitments to Desert Shield, he said, they had a liquidity shortage that Saud hadn't wanted to admit to me. It seemed to me to be a classic case of clientitis from one of our best diplomats. "I'm going in front of the Congress and I'm asking them to go ahead and fund this effort," I said, "and I've got to explain that American blood will be spilled. If you think we're not going to ask the Saudis to pay for this, you've got another thing coming." It was the last I ever heard from him about going easy on the Saudis in terms of the costs of the operation. (p. 373).

What a scumbag. You know how bad freeman is when he is too far up the asses of the saudi royals even for James Baker. Fuck you freeman and good riddance. Thanks to the blogosphere for drawing attention to this guy and the danger he represents.
