Goldstone Gives License to Terrorists

Of course the obvious purpose of the Goldstone report is to box Israel in, make it impossible for it to engage in any kind of military operations without being accused of "war crimes", thus rendering the country completely defenseless against its enemies aggression. At the same time hamas is held to no standards and is rendered entirely blameless for the war it started and its use of human shields which resulted in civilian deaths. Essentially the purpose of Goldstone is to give carte blanche to islamic terrorists to wage jihad against Israel with impunity, knowing there is no price to be paid for using civilian human shields and firing rockets at Israeli civilians. By issuing this report, the Goldstone commission has guaranteed the deaths of more civilians they claim they are trying to protect.

Exclusive: 'Goldstone report - the terrorists' Magna Carta'
By DANIEL FRIEDMANN





'I don't think there has ever been a time in the history of warfare when any army has made more efforts to reduce civilian casualties and deaths of innocent people than the IDF is doing today in Gaza," Col. Richard Kemp, former commander of the British forces in Afghanistan, said during an interview with the BBC during Operation Cast Lead in Gaza in January.

Kemp later appeared before the UN Human Rights Council on October 2009 and reiterated: "[T]he Israeli Defense Forces did more to safeguard the rights of civilians in a combat zone than any other army in the history of warfare. Israel did so while facing an enemy that deliberately positioned its military capability behind the human shield of the civilian population…

"The [...] IDF took extraordinary measures to give Gaza civilians notice of targeted areas, dropping over 2 million leaflets, and making over 100,000 phone calls. Many missions that could have taken out Hamas military capability were aborted to prevent civilian casualties. During the conflict, the IDF allowed huge amounts of humanitarian aid into Gaza [...] the civilian casualties were a consequence of Hamas' way of fighting. Hamas deliberately tried to sacrifice their own civilians..."

This is a fair description of what happened. But to see how white is turned into black, how truth is twisted, justice perverted and falseness prevails, take a good look at the Human Rights Council and its Goldstone report.

A commission created in sin gives birth to an aberration

Israel has suffered from terrorism since its establishment, long before it was blamed for having conquered territories from which attacks against it were launched. The war of terror changed phases, becoming more and more sinister. From "simple" murder of women and children, it turned into airplane hijackings, murdering hostages, suicide bombers and global terror - including the mass murder of members of the Israeli team during the Olympic Games in Munich. During the past eight years a new mode of terror has developed - that of firing rockets on civilian targets from the Gaza Strip. Some 12,000 rockets have been fired, terrorizing hundreds of thousands of Israelis and causing tremendous damage to the economy.



None of these actions triggered UN intervention. Moreover, other countries involved in the war against terror elsewhere in the world - such as in Iraq, Sri Lanka, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Turkey - have remained immune to fact-finding missions by the Human Rights Council, despite the thousands of civilians killed or wounded in these conflicts, and the hundreds of thousands who have been displaced. Israel, the victim of incessant rocket attacks and endless acts of terror, has been singled out for special treatment.

The Human Rights Council's obsession with targeting Israel is common knowledge. Since its establishment in 2006, five out of its 11 special sessions have been devoted to matters involving the Jewish state. Yet in its resolution to establish the fact-finding mission in Gaza, the council outdid itself. Employing extremely biased wording, the council's charge directed its mission "to investigate all violations of international human rights law and international humanitarian law by the occupying power, Israel, against the Palestinian people... particularly in the occupied Gaza Strip, due to the current aggression..."

Israel is thus declared culpable even before the investigation begins.

Many states on the council refused to support this one-sided resolution, including the member states of the European Union, Switzerland, Canada, Korea and Japan.

The council never changed its outrageous mandate, but its president stated the mission's mandate in more moderate terms: "To investigate all violations of international human rights and international human rights law that might have been committed [...] in the context of the military operation in Gaza..."

Despite the reworded resolution, it seems that the mission acted in the spirit of its original mandate.

Warning America About the Islamist Threat

Another excellent monologue on the islamic threat to the west by Pat Condell, who warns Americans to hold onto our constitution and not let sharia creep in as is occurring in Europe.

A word about Pat Condell however. As good and constructive as he is regarding the jihadist threat to the west, Condell is no friend of Israel, as I hear that in one of his videos he insists Israel give up Judea and Samaria. This doesn’t surprise me. Since I found out he is an atheist opposed to all religions, it occurred to me that he probably is anti-Israel. It stands to reason. However since the greatest threat to the free world is specifically islam, even though he is an atheist he ought to support Israel being that it is the only free country in the Middle East and shares the same enemies as the west. But his narrow minded atheism and dismissal of all religions as oppressive won’t allow him to support the Jewish state. Saying that Israel should surrender its land to the same jihadist forces threatening the west is hypocritical in the extreme. While he rightfully urges the west to fight the intrusion of islam into its societies, he urges Israel to give in to their demands. What’s right for the west isn’t right for Israel according to Pat Condell. I do not believe you can have one set of standards for the west and another for Israel, which is a stand taken by even some of those like Condell who are aware of the islamist threat. If Pat cannot distinquish between islam and Judiasm or Christianity, then he lacks moral clarity and thus cannot be counted on as a true ally in this fight. Whatever admiration and respect I had for him previously has diminished a great deal. As good as he is when it comes to speaking out against islam, I cannot consider him an ally since he opposes Israel. And you can be rest assured that given his atheism, he wouldn't consider the destruction of Israel as a loss. I'm sure in his eyes Israel is a theocracy no different than the islamist states surrounding it rather than as a free western style democracy which should be supported by westerners. I don’t begrudge his atheism, I have no problem with it. I do have a problem with his being anti-Israel, assuming he is. I also have a problem in that he does not distinquish between islam and other religions which he all lumps together as oppressive. Islam is distinct from other religions in its violence and oppression. I would hope Pat understands this.

Obama Offers Millions to the muslim World

In these tough economic times, our president Barack Hussein Obama's priority is to redistribute millions of American taxpayer dollars to the muslim world, where no doubt it will be used for nefarious purposes rather than the stated purposes. H/T islam in action
Obama offers millions in Muslim technology fund
Oct 23

The White House Friday highlighted a new multi-million-dollar technology fund for Muslim nations, following a pledge made by President Barack Obama in his landmark speech to the Islamic world.

The White House said the US Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) had issued a call for proposals for the fund, which will provide financing of between 25 and 150 million dollars for selected projects and funds.

The Global Technology and Innovation Fund will "catalyze and facilitate private sector investments" throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa, the White House said in a statement.

Eligible projects would advance economic opportunity and create jobs in areas like technology, education, telecoms, media, business services and clean technology, the White House said.

OPIC said sample projects could help foster the development of new computer technology or telecommunications businesses, or widen access to broadband Internet services.

Proposals must be submitted by the end of November, and managers of funds that make a final short list will make presentations in Washington in January.

Final selections will be announced next June.

In his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo last June, Obama argued that "education and innovation will be the currency of the 21st century" and that under-investment was rife in many Muslim nations.

As well as the fund, Obama also said he will host a summit on entrepreneurship this year to deepen ties between business leaders in the United States and Muslim communities around the world.

This really irks me. Shouldn't the president craft policies which give more incentive to make American business invest in America and create jobs here? Instead his economic policies are harming small business and making us into a socialist country. Hmm, if I didn't know any better I would say Obama is deliberately trying to weaken America economically while trying to strengthen our enemies. I don't want modern technology in the hands of those with a seventh century mindset.

The Latest Libel Against Israel

Amnesty and HRW have become so far removed from their original purposes. The “human rights” community's sole purpose these days is to engage in waging a propaganda war against Israel on behalf of their islamic jihadist enemies. The latest salvo is to accuse Israel of stealing water from the "palestinians". The onslaught against Israel is never ending, its just one charge after another to see what will stick. Every time one scurrilous accusation is debunked, its quickly followed by another.

Response to Amnesty International’s report on Israeli-Palestinian water issues

Israel has fulfilled all its obligations under the water agreement regarding the supply of additional quantities of water to the Palestinians, and has even extensively surpassed the obligatory quantity.

The Israel-Palestinian water policy is based on an interim agreement between the two parties, particularly on Article 40 of Annex III to the agreement, which relates to the question of water and sewage. According to the agreement, 23.6 million cubic meters of water will be allocated to the Palestinians annually. In actual effect, they have access to twice as much water.

Israel has fulfilled all its obligations under the water agreement regarding the supply of additional quantities of water to the Palestinians, and has even extensively surpassed the obligatory quantity. The Palestinians, on the other hand, have significantly violated their commitments under the water agreement, specifically regarding important issues such as illegal drilling (they have drilled over 250 wells without the authorization of the Joint Water Commission) and handling of sewage. (The Palestinians are not constructing sewage treatment plants, despite their obligation to do so and the important foreign funding earmarked for this purpose).

Data regarding consumption of fresh natural water clearly shows Israel’s fair treatment of Palestinian requirements:

In 1967, Israel’s per capita consumption of fresh natural water was 508 (m3/person/year). In 2008, it dramatically dropped to 149. The Palestinian figures for the same consumption went from 86 (in 1967) to 105 (in 2008).

Israel has offered to supply Palestinians with desalinated water, but this possibility is systematically rejected due to political motivations.

While Israel has significantly reduced its use of fresh natural water since 1967, consistently closing the gap between Israeli and Palestinian consumption, it remains unclear how Amnesty’s claims of “discriminatory policies” towards Palestinians can sustain the trial of reality. The authors of the report chose to ignore Israeli data, papers and reports, although they contain verifiable facts presented with total transparency. This questionable approach, which consists in systematically disregarding Israeli material while relying exclusively on Palestinian allegations, raises doubts as to the real intentions of the report’s authors and of the organization itself.

A thorough report on the issue of water between Israel and the Palestinians can be consulted on the website of the Israel Water Authority.

Goldstone Revealed

Far from being a respectable jurist, Richard Goldstone has a history of being extremely corrupt with a blatant disregard for justice and will do whatever is necessary to advance his own career.

Who Is Richard Goldstone?

October 20, 2009
By R. W. Johnson
The UN Human Rights Council has endorsed Judge Richard Goldstone's controversial report accusing both Israel and Hamas of war crimes during the 2008-09 conflict in the Gaza Strip. The council has asked the UN Security Council to refer the report's conclusions to the International Criminal Court if the two sides fail to conduct their own investigations.

Goldstone's report has been dismissed as hopelessly one-sided not only by the Israelis but by many neutral observers, with both the European Union and United States dissenting both on its substance and its suggestion that alleged Israeli war crimes should be judged not by Israeli courts but by the International Criminal Court.

Even many Jews outside Israel are asking how Goldstone, himself a Jew, could lend himself to such an obviously biased mission mandated by a Human Rights Council that is itself full of human rights violators as well as habitual Israel-haters. Both Martti Ahtisaari and Mary Robinson turned down the mission for that reason, after all.

Goldstone's behavior will not surprise those who have followed his career. As a young advocate in South Africa he drew criticism for the way he privately entertained the attorneys who might bring him cases: this was seen as touting for custom. Similarly, his decision to accept nomination as a judge from the apartheid regime drew criticism from many liberal lawyers who refused to accept such nomination because it meant enforcing apartheid laws.

J Street Drops Pro-Israel Charade

No more pretense on the part of J Street as one of its campus branches drops the "pro-Israel" label.

Yonatan Shechter, a junior at Hampshire College, said the ultra-liberal Massachusetts campus is inhospitable to terms like “Zionist” and that when his former organization, the Union of Progressive Zionists (which has been absorbed into J Street U), dropped that last word of its name, “people were so relieved.”

Shechter said that J Street U allows students who support Israel to have an address on his campus, adding that nothing more to the right exists or would be sustainable and the only other Jewish student group “is decidedly not political… they won’t go beyond having felafel on Independence Day.”

Relieved? I’m disgusted. This is Absolutely pathetic. Just what is wrong with young Jews these days that they are so self-hating and ashamed of their Judaism? No other ethnic or religious group has this problem.

Later, Ben-Ami described his organization’s goal as one that includes changing the nature of the debate about Israel in America to one of a big-tent approach where different viewpoints and perspectives were welcomed.

As if that’s not already the case.

“It is our goal to change traditional conversations when it comes to Israel and to broaden the notion that there is only one way to express love and concern for it,” Ben-Ami said to applause. “We are here to redefine and expand the very concept of being pro-Israel. No longer should this ‘pro-’ require an ‘anti-.’”

He read letters of support from President Shimon Peres and opposition leader Tzipi Livni, neither of whom were able to attend but both of whom expressed support for including a wide swath of American Jews in the issues connected to Israel.

“For too long, our voice - the voice of mainstream progressive Jews on Israel - has been absent from the political playing field in Washington and around the country,” Ben-Ami told the crowd, noting that many have focused on other issues.

It is a total fallacy that only “right wing” views regarding Israel have been heard, quite the contrary in fact. The left has been dominating the discussion on Israel, especially on campus, for years. And those groups regarded as “right wing” such as AIPAC are not really on the right at all. AIPAC supports the creation of a palestinian state and the removal of Jews from Judea and Samaria. How can that be described as remotely a right wing position? It is necessary for J Street to paint with a broad brush any views about Israel in opposition to theirs as "right wing" in order to make it appear they are in the middle, mainstream. But of course it is J Street which holds views that are extremist and out of the mainstream. Even the most left wing party in Israel, Meretz, supported the Gaza war which J Street opposed and J Street also opposes even sanctions against Iran and favors dialogue with hamas. How can these positions be considered moderate in any way? What a prick Ben Ami is.

Saudi "Professor" Says it's OK to Blow Oneself up in Tel Aviv

Encouraging suicide bombings in Tel Aviv is what passes for "educational" TV in the Arab-muslim world.

Arab prof: 'Blowing oneself up' OK in Tel Aviv
But asserts suicide bombings against Saudis not legitimate

JERUSALEM – Suicide bombings are OK in Tel Aviv, Israel, but not in Saudi Arabia, declared a Saudi professor speaking on Arab satellite television.

"Someone who blows himself up amidst the enemy is different from someone who blows himself up in a safe place. Blowing oneself up in Tel Aviv is not like blowing oneself up in Riyadh," stated Saudi University professor Salman Al-Abdali on Iqra TV, an Arab educational television network.

"Explosive belts are legitimate when they are used against colonialist aggressors," added Al-Abdali. "Let me reiterate: colonialist aggressors, who cross continents and oceans, in order to invade the lands of the Muslims."

Moonbat EU Lawyers Draw up List of IDF "War Criminals"

This is revolting. Eurotrash lawyers aid hamas' war against Israel. While muslims can openly declare holy war against England and other countries in Europe right within those countries borders and not be the least bit worried about facing arrest, military officers of the free, democratic nation of Israel cannot travel to those same countries for fear they may be arrested on charges of "war crimes" because they defended their country against those who are waging war on it. Europe is sick and twisted and gets everything it deserves from these islamic savages. Among the first to go will be these leftist dregs of humanity under a sharia system.

Lawyers in EU draw up list of alleged IDF war criminals

By Anshel Pfeffer, Haaretz Correspondent

Tags: Gaza War





Human rights lawyers and pro-Palestinian activists in a number of European countries hold lists with names of Israel Defense Forces soldiers allegedly linked to war crimes committed during Operation Cast Lead in the Gaza Strip. Existing legislation enables arrest warrants to be issued against these officers if they enter those countries.

Lawyers in Britain and other European countries have been collecting testimonies of Palestinians and other data from Gaza since January, which they maintain proves that war crimes were committed by the IDF during the offensive. The evidence is linked to IDF officers holding ranks of battalion commander and higher, who were in command during various stages of Cast Lead.

The other nations who have lawyers collecting information on the matter include the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium and Norway, whose laws, as well as Britain's, allow the issuance of arrest warrants against foreign citizens suspected of war crimes. Advertisement


Attorney Daniel Makover from London is coordinating the efforts in Britain. One of his colleagues visited the Gaza Strip several weeks after the fighting in order to collect testimonies. Palestinians civilians also gave the legal assistant their approval, and asked that he file the suits in their name, in line with British law.

Speaking to Haaretz, Makover refused to offer details on the identity of the IDF officers or how many were listed, but said that much depends on the specific details of each case. Makover said that anyone who was involved in an incident may face criminal charges. The attorney added that there are officers who are obviously candidates for charges, and others who are less obvious, but emphasized that it depends on the facts collected on the ground.

Makover said that the Goldstone report on the fighting in the Gaza Strip will bolster the efforts of the activists, and said that some of the instances mentioned in the report were already known to the attorneys. Makover is part of an unofficial network of attorneys operating in various countries in Europe, exchanging and sharing information so that suspected officers may be arrested in those countries.

The information is often received from pro-Palestinian activists who follow Jewish or pro-Israel groups that invite IDF officers to deliver lectures. In some instances, this information is relayed to border controls. Makover said that a small number of names of IDF officers is already on a British police watch list, and that when they arrive in Britain the authorities will issue an arrest warrant that will lead to their possible detention.

A number of human rights groups are busy working to create an international organization that would enable closer surveillance of those they suspect of war crimes and torture, as well as seek warrants for their arrest.

The IDF did not wish to specify the instructions it has given to officers before they travel abroad. In practice, many of the officers who participated in the Gaza operation have been asked to consult with legal experts at the Foreign Ministry, where they are instructed how to behave abroad and where they need to lower the profile of their identity; in some cases they are advised not to visit certain countries.

The Foreign Ministry released a statement saying: "The ministry is aware of efforts undertaken by Palestinian groups and their supporters to harm IDF officers through legal and public relations means, and is working to prevent such efforts."

The Left Enables islamic "Honor" Murders

It’s extremely frustrating when you have academics, politicians, reporters, journalists and other assorted leftist miscreants providing cover for the horrific islamic practice of "honor" killings by maliciously and falsely claiming this is practiced by other cultures, yes even in Appalachia here in the US! This of course is complete crap. As far as I’m concerned these apologists are accessories to murder. Women and girls are being murdered, others lives are in danger even in the west, and liberals don't care. Their only priority is to make sure that islam doesn't get blamed. Protecting islam is more important than protecting the lives of individuals endangered from islam. These people who proclaim themselves the champions of human rights are enablers of islamic fascism, of the human rights atrocities committed against women and non-muslims in the muslim world. In reality for the left, human rights take a back seat to issues of solidarity with the forces who are waging war against the west and Israel. They can never acknowledge the evil done in the name of islam because it conflicts with their worldview of the muslim world as the poor victims of western, especially American and Israeli “aggression” and “colonialism”. In reality however it is the muslims who are the aggressive conquerors.

Spinning Out Of Control: Honor Killings and Media Bias


We are entering an all-spin zone, a wild, weird and spooky season and I am not talking about Halloween.

With a few exceptions, the mainstream media continue to kill stories about honor killings and attempted honor killings in North America. How often did you read stories about the honor killings that took place in Toronto (07), Dallas (08), Atlanta (08), Oak Forest, Illinois (08), Alexandria (08), Buffalo (09), and Kingston, Canada (09)—on and on, until the most recent attempted honor killing in Phoenix?

There are two killers still on the loose: Yaser Said, the Dallas monster out of Egypt who abused, stalked, and murdered his two daughters with the help of his wife, their mother, and his son, their brother.

Iraqi-born Faleh Hassan Almaleki is another foul killer on the lam. Just last week, he ran over his 20-year-old daughter, Noor, with a car because she was “too western.” Imagine: This father used two tons of steel rage against his daughter. He mowed her down with a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Faleh also tried to kill the older woman who was with her, Amal Edan Khalef, with whom Noor was living. Amal had probably rescued Noor, but she was also the mother of Noor’s boyfriend. Both women are now in the hospital; Noor remains unconscious and is barely clinging to life.

At issue: Apparently, Noor had been fighting with her father for years. She did not want to remain in her arranged marriage and indeed, left the Middle East and dared to choose a boyfriend of her own. Yes, like the Said sisters, Noor also had pages on Facebook and at MySpace too. Noor knew she was living in the United States and not in the Middle East. Apparently, her father did not accept this as reality.

With the exception of brief, one-time reportage, (USA Today, AP, ABC News, etc.) the mainstream national media has not really covered this story. Only True Crime Reports has updated it. When it comes to Islam and honor killings, political, anthropological, historical, and psychological information is rarely brought to bear on the single story. Suddenly, completely out of context, one lone individual or one lone family just up and murders their daughter or their sister. No rhyme or reason to it. Case closed.

Obama Apologists Hit New Low

The Pentagon is now racist? What a crock of shit! In order to redirect attention from obama's shortcomings as commander and chief, Seymour Hersh instead accuses the military of waging war against the White House and denigrates them as racist, just like what is done with any faction that dares to be critical of the left's messiah. F-you seymour hersh! Attempting to smear FOX and conservative talk show hosts is one thing, but smearing our armed forces is unconscionable and represents a new low even for this White House, which is obviously using another of its press stooges, in this case Hersh, to go on the attack against Pentagon critics.

Seymour Hersh: Military Is Waging War Against The White House


The Huffington Post
First Posted: 10-23-09 03:54 PM | Updated: 10-23-09 05:43 PM

In addition to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the United States military is also fighting a war against the Obama administration at the White House, Seymour Hersh said in a little-noted speech at Duke University on October 13. The military is "in a war against the White House -- and they feel they have Obama boxed in," he said.

Hersh, a Pulitzer-prize winning investigative journalist who exposed the My Lai massacre in Vietnam and the Abu Ghraib scandal in Iraq, sees an undercurrent of racism in the Pentagon's dealings with the White House. "They think he's weak and the wrong color. Yes, there's racism in the Pentagon. We may not like to think that, but it's true and we all know it."

As Neil Offen writes in the Durham Herald Sun:
"A lot of people in the Pentagon would like to see him get into trouble," he said. By leaking information that the commanding officer in Afghanistan, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, says the war would be lost without an additional 40,000 American troops, top brass have put Obama in a no-win situation, Hersh contended.


"If he gives them the extra troops they're asking for, he loses politically," Hersh said. "And if he doesn't give them the troops, he also loses politically."

Hersh considers the worsening situation in Afghanistan and Pakistan as the principal test of the Obama presidency, which will require the cooperation of the top military brass. Obama must face up to the military, Hersh said. "He's either going to let the Pentagon run him or he has to run the Pentagon." If he doesn't, according to Hersh, "this stuff is going to be the ruin of his presidency."

Bolton Believes Israel Should Attack Iran

John Bolton supports an Israeli attack on Iran's nuclear facilities. He says regime change would be the ideal scenario, but we cannot rely on that outcome with Iran being so close to acquiring nuclear weapons. Regime change is not going to happen in the near future and even if it did, Iran would still move foreward with its nuclear ambitions which would still make it a threat since we can't be sure the regime replacing the current one would be more westernized and even if it was it may still be hostile to Israel. I don’t trust any muslim country with nuclear weapons. Either America takes out Iran’s nuclear facilities or Israel should and must do so themselves because it cannot afford to wait on regime change as others in the west have the luxury of doing so given that Iran does not pose an existential threat to them. If only people with moral clarity like John Bolton were leading this country instead of who we currently have.

Bolton: Israel Must Bomb Iran


by Tim Mak, The New Majority

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton addressed a crowded room at the American Enterprise Institute today, saying that “the use of force is required” to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, and predicting that he didn’t “think that Israel [would] hesitate to act preemptively.”

At a panel discussion titled “Should Israel Attack Iran?”, the Bush appointee pulled no punches in criticizing his former boss, arguing that President Bush should have struck at Iran’s nuclear capabilities when he had the chance:
I had once thought the Bush administration would [bomb Iran] before it left office because it liked to say that an Iran with nuclear weapons was unacceptable, and I used to think that when the President said ‘unacceptable’ that he meant ‘unacceptable’… It’s a difficult mission. We can do it better. That’s why I thought we should do it


Bolton justified his stance by pointing out the regional implications of a successful Iranian nuclear weapons program:
Once Iran gets nuclear weapons, we are in danger on a worldwide basis… Iran isn’t the end of the problem. The real difficulty with that analysis is that Saudi Arabia will get nuclear weapons, probably Egypt, probably Turkey, possibly others. So within a five to ten year period, you’ll have half a dozen nuclear countries in the Middle East… almost guaranteeing a nuclear exchange at some point or another.
Bolton also argued that the failure of the international community’s efforts to contain Iran was another reason for a pre-emptive strike,

noting that “the other options have failed, are failing and will fail.”

As evidence, he pointed to the three U.N. Security Council resolutions regarding sanctions on Iran, opining that they have to this date made “no material impact on Iran’s nuclear weapons program.” The former ambassador to the U.N. further said that future sanctions would prove to be similarly ineffective:
The prospect of sanctions in the future is illusory…The combination of Russian and Chinese action in the Security Council on any hypothetical fourth resolution would end up watering it down just like the first three.

Bolton conceded that an Israeli strike would likely lead to an overwhelmingly negative reaction from within the Obama administration, saying that he didn’t “think it will be at the level of military force against Israel. But I think that it will cause a very dramatic break in the relationship between the Obama administration and Israel.”

Other panelists hesitated to go as far as Ambassador Bolton, who at one point contended that “the ideal outcome is regime change.”
Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, cautioned that striking Iran’s nuclear weapons capability would instantly legitimize Iran’s nuclear weapons program. “An Israeli strike is a lousy scenario for the U.S.,” he said.

US Sovereignty Being Ceded to the UN

Hussein obama is part of this globalization plot and intends to relinquish American sovereignty. There is far more to the rise of hussein obama than meets the eye. Global anti-American and anti-Israel forces were behind his ascendancy to the White House. I’m not even sure he actually won the election legitimately. It’s a fact he received illegal foreign donations and voter fraud occurred courtesy of ACORN.

UNHRC Investigates US Human Rights Abuses

Goldstone was just the beginning. Newsreal reports that a special rapporteur was appointed to investigate homelessness and foreclosures in the US.

Raquel Rolnik, a Brazilian urban planner and the UN’s choice for the task, will be investigating issues of concern to the UN vis-à-vis the United States, including public housing, homelessness and foreclosures. As part of her fact-finding mission, she will visit New York City, Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, Washington, a South Dakota Indian reservation, and Wilkes-Barre, Pa. She will then compile a report on her findings, which will be submitted to the UN General Assembly and the UN Human Rights Council in March.

You'd think the slaughter in Darfur or Iranian repression would be a higher priority for a council billing itself as protecting human rights. When it comes to the disgracefully politicized UNHRC, Israel's the proverbial canary in the mine shaft.

Haveil Havalim

Edition #240 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is up at Artzeinu.

Israel Should not Probe Gaza War

Why should Israel give any credence to and accept the recommendations of a report put out by a corrupt agency headed by the world’s most vicious human rights violators and which was predetermined to find Israel guilty of war crimes? It would be a huge mistake for Israel to conduct its own inquiry into the Gaza war because it would give legitimacy to the Goldstone farce. And when the investigation inevitably concludes that Israel did not commit any war crimes, the findings would be dismissed as a coverup. Israel cannot let itself fall into this trap. Only when the rest of the countries which are currently or recently have been involved in wars are subjected to the same investigations into their conduct should Israel agree to hold an inquiry. Start with the muslim countries and Russia.

Unfortunately I expect hussein obama to use the U.S. veto power to gain some concessions out of Israel in exchange, assuming he will veto it at all. We can’t expect hussein to make the right decision simply based on the fact that it is morally right.

B’nai Brith Canada disagrees with Cotler’s proposed Israeli inquiry into Gaza War
TORONTO , October 22, 2009 – B’nai Brith Canada has voiced its disagreement with MP Irwin Cotler ’s call for setting up an independent commission of inquiry into Operation Cast Lead in response to the United Nations Human Rights Council-mandated Goldstone Report. The Mount Roy al MP made the recommendation to the Jerusalem Post yesterday.

“The Goldstone Commission was an outrage from the minute the UN Human Rights Council created it,” said Frank Dimant , Executive Vic e President of B’nai Brith Canada . “The Council itself is stacked with some of the world’s most egregious human rights abusers. Their whole purpose for being members of that dreadful council is to shield each other from the microscope and, at the same time, to redirect the heat towards this world’s only Jewish State. Goldstone’s mandate was pre-determined against Israel and members of his investigative team were passing judgment against Israel before the Commission was even set up.

“We have to strongly disagree with Mr. Cotler on this issue. Setting up a commission of inquiry into the events in Gaza will only give credence to Goldstone’s blatantly biased report. We are surprised that Irwin Cotler has fallen into the UNHRC’s anti-Israel trap, and are equally astonished that, as a Canadian Parliamentarian, he is calling on a sovereign state to do something that is so obviously against its interests. Mr. Cotler’s proposal will only, inadvertently, put fuel into the frenzy of Israel-hatred that should concern us all. We also hope that PM Netanyahu stands firm against all of pressure being directed at his state and does not find himself a voluntary participant in the UNHRC’s anti-Israel agenda by agreeing to an internal inquiry.

“It is unconscionable that the forces of Islamofascism, which have vowed to destroy Israel , are being judged by the same standards as a democracy that is trying to defend its citizens from terrorism. Recently, British Army Colonel Richard Kemp emphatically stated that Israel ’s operation in Gaza was amongst the most ethical and lawful operations in the history of warfare. A new commission investigating Israel ’s actions will only give credibility to the preposterous notion that Israel should be held up to a different standard than everyone else.

“If Goldstone’s report makes its way to the UN Security Council, hopefully President Obama will stand with people of good faith and veto it, so that we can finally put to bed this most current episode in the ongoing attempt to demonize and deligitimize this world’s only Jewish State.”

Israeli Doctors Barred From Breast Cancer Conference in Egypt

This is why I unapologetically hate muslims. Even though Israel is one the most medically advanced countries in the world and this conference could certainly have used the expertise of Israeli doctors, nevertheless the hateful, petty, infantile Egyptian government decided to uninvite Israeli doctors to the breast cancer awareness conference being held in Alexandria. Even medicine is politicized in the muslim world. And this is a country which has a "peace" treaty with Israel. Perhaps part of this stems from the fact that Egypt and the rest of the arab-muslim world are ashamed and embarrassed that tiny Israel is so far ahead of all of them combined in medical as well as other technological and scientific advancements. This is why western organizations should never operate in muslim countries. Let them wallow and suffer due to their own intolerance and backwardness. This conference should be moved to a non-muslim country in protest of this decision.

In a sane world this conference would pack up and leave Egypt. But no one wants to be seen standing with Israel.
For years Israel was barred from the international Red Cross because the muslim countries demanded it. And even when finally Israel was allowed to join, it was on the condition that their ambulances not use the Star of David, so they had to replace it with some diamond symbol in order to be accepted as a member of the IRC. Israel should have told the IRC where to go. Christian countries use the cross and muslim countries use the crescent symbol but only the Jewish religious symbol is barred. This is blatant discrimination. The sky would not fall if the west defied the muslim world for a change. The IRC should have accepted Israel, Star of David and all and if muslim countries chose to leave the IRC as a result then so be it, it would have been their loss. This is largely the problem, in that the western world continuously enables the hatred of the muslim world against Jews and Israel and even against themselves. As long as the west indulges this behavior, it won't end. H/T islam in action

US Org. Hosts Cancer Meet, Israelis not Welcome
by Maayana Miskin

(IsraelNN.com) A United States-based organization's conference on breast cancer awareness, to be hosted in Egypt, has been touted by international news networks as an example of “unprecedented cooperation” in the region. However, according to Channel 2 news, the celebration of unity may be premature, as Israeli doctors were told at the last minute that their invitations to participate had been rescinded.

The conference will be held in Alexandria, Egypt this week, under the auspices of the American group Susan G. Komen for the Cure – the world's largest breast cancer advocacy organization. It is to include meetings between leading researchers from the U.S. and several Mideast countries.

Israeli doctors were invited to the event as well, and several had planned to attend. However, on Sunday night, the doctors received brief notices telling them that they were no longer invited to the conference, by order of Egyptian Health Minister Hatem el-Gabali.

The notices did not include an explanation of Gabali's decision.

Despite the cancellation of the Israeli presence at the event, Egyptian officials continued to praise the event as an example of regional cooperation. “The week's events are a demonstration of the cooperation between countries, governments, civil society, advocates, survivors, and the global community as a whole,” Dr. Mohammed Shaalan of Egypt's Breast Cancer Foundation told Reuters on Monday. “It shows that breast cancer has no boundaries and reveals the beauty of the world's unity in its fight against breast cancer.”

UN Aiding Iran's Nuclear Ambitions

How sick it is that the while the international community seeks to prevent an embattled democracy, Israel, from exorcizing its right to legitimate self-defense against terrorists, it is at the same time helping to facilitate the nuclear ambitions of a genocidal, rogue terror state, Iran. This is an insane world and the most insane thing is that Israel cannot rely on the free world to stand by it, feckless and craven as they are.

Stop using limited powers in a way that expands our enemies' advantages over us
By Caroline B. Glick





http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | If, to paraphrase Carl von Clausewitz diplomacy is war by other means, then just as armies are called upon to concentrate their efforts and resources where they can do the most good for their cause, so governments must utilize their diplomatic resources - whether plentiful or scarce - to advance their most important national interests.
The Palestinians and the Iranians have formidable diplomatic resources at their disposal. Both the Palestinians and Iran can expect to receive the support of automatic majorities at the UN for everything they do. And today most international diplomacy is conducted under the aegis of the UN or its affiliated bodies. Understanding their strength, the Palestinians and the Iranians use the UN and its affiliated organs to advance their most important goals. In the Palestinians' case, UN-based diplomacy is used to delegitimize Israel. In the Iranian case, UN-based diplomacy is used to facilitate the mullocracy's acquisition of nuclear weapons. Over the past week, both the Palestinians and the Iranians enjoyed strategic victories in their diplomatic campaigns.
Last Friday, the UN Human Rights Council passed a resolution condemning Israel in every possible way for asserting its sovereignty over its capital city and for defending its citizens against wanton, massive, unprovoked and illegal terror from the skies emanating from Hamas-controlled Gaza. The resolution represented a massive achievement for the Palestinians. It referred Israel to the Security Council with the recommendation that Israel's leaders be tried as war criminals before international tribunals. That is, the UNHRC's resolution effectively delegitimized Israel's right to exist by denying that it has a right to defend its territory and its people from illegal aggression carried out by an illegal terrorist organization.
Then on Wednesday, Muhammad elBaradei, the UN's International Atomic Energy Agency's virulently anti-Israel Chairman announced a deal has been reached between Iran and the US, Russia and France regarding Iran's nuclear program. The deal -- which the parties initialized in Geneva after just three days of talks -- legitimizes Iran's nuclear weapons program and effectively transforms the US, the EU and Russia into facilitators rather than opponents of that program.
According to news reports of the accord, the US agreed to send American personnel to Iran to upgrade a research reactor in Teheran that was provided to the Shah in the 1960s. Russia agreed to increase enrichment levels of Iranian uranium from their current level of 3.5% to 19.75%. And France agreed to transform the higher-enriched uranium into metallic nuclear fuel.
Until Wednesday, in accordance with three binding UN Security Council resolutions, the US, Russia and the EU refused to accept the legitimacy of Iran's uranium enrichment activities. Their refusal stemmed from the fact that by enriching uranium, Iran stands in breach of its commitments to the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty. Wednesday's accord ignores this inconvenient fact and so whitewashes Iran's illicit behavior, effectively accepting Iran's right to enrich uranium.

Muslims in UK Declare Holy War

Instead of getting in a huff over the English Defence League and others who rightly express alarm over the islamization of England, liberals would do well to speak out against mutants such as Anjem Choudary who has declared war against the UK and threatens the imposition of sharia and the forcible conversion of non-muslims to islam. This creature and like-minded co-religionists are the one's inciting hatred, intolerance and violence.

It's always amusing when muslims pretend that they are going to return the west back to morality. For example they berate the west for pornography and prostitution when in fact women are degraded far more in the muslim world than they are in the west. In the muslim world there is widespread sex slavery, as well as underground porn, prostitution etc. And he also accuses westerners of wanting to legalize pedophilia when in the muslim world pedophilia is already legal. It is legal for old men to marry little girls. Oh and homosexuality also exists in the muslim world where its common for men to have sex with young boys, including imams who are engaging in this behavior. H/T islam in Action

Elie Wiesel to Address CUFI

I find it highly amusing that J Street, a group which accepts donations from radical muslims and defends hamas and Iran, would question Hagee's pro-Israel bona fides and accuse him of acting against the interests of Israel. J Street is not fooling anyone any longer as it continues to be discredited for the anti-Israel organization that it certainly is while laughably trying to portray true and proven friends of Israel as being anti-Israel. Elie Weisel has chosen to give the keynote address at this year's CUFI conference while J Street has a radical muslim who blamed Israel for 9/11 speaking at its dinner.

As its treachery becomes more exposed, J Street's tactic, just like the White House, is to attack the messengers who are merely doing nothing more than discrediting J Street on the basis of its own members statements and the group's associations and donors as well as taking policy stances which imperil the Jewish state. We can only hope J Street's days are numbered.

Elie Wiesel to Keynote CUFI Conference Sunday


Elie Wiesel chooses CUFI.
Last year, the supposedly pro-Israel J Street spearheaded a campaign against the indisputably pro-Israel group Christians United for Israel. In July of 2008, J Street circulated a petition urging Senator Joe Lieberman not to speak at CUFI's annual conference, focusing attention on controversial statements made by CUFI founder and director Pastor John Hagee. The campaign was unsuccessful -- Lieberman compared Hagee to Moses in his remarks -- but months earlier Hagee had withdrawn his endorsement of Senator John McCain under intense pressure from J Street and its partisanl allies.
J Street specifically questioned Hagee's pro-Israel bona fides. His views "have nothing to do with Israel's best interests," the group said in a statement deriding Hagee's "supposed support for Israel." And J Street still keeps an opposition research file on Hagee posted on its website.
Apparently J Street's view of Hagee's is not shared by Elie Wiesel, who will be the keynote speaker at CUFI's "Night to Honor Israel" this Sunday in San Antonio at the same time that J Street will be kicking off its own conference in Washington. CUFI will honor Wiesel and, according to a CUFI official, Hagee will announce that his ministry has raised $9 million to be distributed to various Israeli charities. This is the group whose support for Israel J Street deemed illegitimate.
J Street's conference was to have featured a "poetry slam" and panel that was later cut from the program after this blog posted video of one of the speakers making statements that J Street director Jeremy Ben-Ami subsequently condemned as an "abuse of Holocaust imagery." Still speaking at the conference is Salam Al-Marayati, the executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. In 1994 Al-Maryati wrote that "just as Hitler forged a conflict between Judaism and Christianity, apologists for Israel crave for Islam to be at odds with both Judaism and Christianity." On September 11, 2001, just hours after the World Trade Center fell, Al-Maryati pointed the finger at Israel in a radio interview. "If we're going to look at suspects, we should look to the groups that benefit the most from these kinds of incidents, and I think we should put the state of Israel on the suspect list," Al-Maryati said. A year later at the campus of California State University-Northridge, Al-Maryati's Muslim Public Affairs Council put on an exhibit that contained a photograph carrying the slogan "Zionism is Nazism."
On the one hand we have a Holocaust survivor and rightful Nobel Peace Prize winner addressing an organization whose pro-Israel credentials J Street has repeatedly attacked. And on the other we have a paranoid, anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist addressing an organization that the Israeli ambassador refuses to engage on the grounds that the policies it supports could "impair Israel's interests."
Ben-Ami said of Hagee's remarks last spring that they were "offensive not just to Jewish people who suffered at the hands of Adolf Hitler but to all Americans, their parents and grandparents who fought and sacrificed to defeat Nazi Germany." So then why is Elie Wiesel speaking at Hagee's conference and Salam Al-Maryati speaking at Ben-Ami's?

Welsh Leftists Are Happy to Live With Muslims

Hundreds of clueless Welsh leftists came out in support of islam saying they are happy to live with muslims. They can have them.

“We Are Happy Living With Muslims”

CAIRO – Hundreds of Welsh in the coastal city of Swansea are standing side by side with their Muslim neighbours and friends against attempts by far-rightists to paint them as the enemy within.

But they are enemies seeking to impose sharia on a free people as is taking place throughout Europe.

“We are happy to live together with the Muslim community,” Leanne Woods, National Assembly member for Plaid Cymru (Party of Wales), told the Wales Online on Sunday, October 18.

“We are not prepared to accept divisive and hate-based politics on our streets.”

Stupid woman. By accepting islam, she is indeed accepting divisiveness and hate. Islam does not allow for any other faith, its doctrine is for either the conversion of non-believers, their submission to islam, or their death.

Hundreds of Swansea residents gathered around Castle Square on Saturday, October 17, to counter an anti-Muslim march by the Welch Defence League (WDL).

“This is the first time they have come to Wales and a lot of people from different organisations have come out to say far-right extremism isn’t acceptable on the streets of Swansea,” asserted Woods.

The WDL had called the march to protest what they called the influence of “extreme Islam” in Wales.

Its supporters chanted anti-Muslim slogans with participants making Nazi salutes, with one of them arrested for a racially-aggravated public order offence.

“My first reaction to the WDL is who are they defending us against?” wonder Keith Ross, one of the organizers of the counter demo.

“I don’t need to be defended against Muslims.”

Wales is a country that is part of the United Kingdom with a population estimated at three million.

Islam is the largest non-Christian religion in Wales, with over 30,000 reported Muslims in the 2001 census.

Intolerance

Many Swansea residents accused the WDL of fuelling hatred and intolerance in their community.

"It is worrying, the intolerance," said Darren Cadwallader, a resident.

"One of the things I love about St Helen's Road is the diversity."

Ross, the organizer, agrees.

“I’m sad that the WDL has made a public call for no more mosques, which is a breach of human rights,” he asserted.

This is what I detest so much about liberals. They don't get it that islam itself is hateful and intolerant and those who oppose it are the ones standing up for freedom and human rights. Liberals actually believe that by defending islam and sharia makes them enlightened and progressive when just the opposite is the case. They are standing up for an ideology that is unenlightened, barbaric and medieval and denies basic human rights. This is what makes liberals in fact a detriment to western civilization. Their insistence on tolerating intolerance will set civilization back centuries. Far from being progressive, leftists are in fact regressive. These are the same people who find conservative Christians to be too extremist and intolerant to associate with because of their opposition to gay marriage for example, yet they ironically embrace hijab and turban wearing muslim fanatics. Do they think their muslim friends even believe gays have the right to live, let alone get married? H/T islam in Action

Politicians to Attend J Street Dinner

Unfortunately hundreds of members of Congress, mostly democrats, are to attend the J Street annual dinner later this month. Some however have wisely backed out after being informed that J Street is actually anti-Israel. You cannot be pro-Israel if you favor Iran acquiring nuclear weapons. And since J Street opposes even sanctions against Iran, essentially it is backing Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons. You can’t be pro-Israel if you think hamas should be part of a unity government and you can’t be pro-Israel if you oppose Israel’s basic right to self-defense, which is the position J Street took when it opposed the Gaza operation. And you can't be pro-Israel when you invite speakers who accuse it of being a nazi state. And it isn’t just Likudniks who oppose J Street’s agenda. Even Israelis on the left are now backing away from J Street as they become more aware of what it truly represents. With more and more revelations regarding its donors and speakers attending its events, perhaps J Street can be stopped in its tracks before it becomes an effective lobby on Capitol Hill. This is another of the many reasons that the democrats' control of Congress must be reversed next year.

Kerry, Hagel to keynote 'anti-Israel' dinner
Group leaders compare Mideast democracy to Nazis, oppose concept of Jewish state

JERUSALEM – Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and former Sen. Chuck Hagel, R-Neb., are among the keynote speakers slated to address the annual dinner of J Street, a controversial Israel lobby group accused of working against the Jewish state, while scores of lawmakers are backing out of the event amid news media coverage of the organization's agenda.

Nearly 160 congressional lawmakers, mostly Democrats, endorsed the Oct. 26 dinner with some reportedly slated to attend.

The night's speaker list includes politicians as well as poet Josh Healey, who has penned works implying Israel is perpetuating a Holocaust against Palestinians.

J Street brands itself as pro-Israel. It states on its website it seeks to "promote meaningful American leadership to end the Arab-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian conflicts peacefully and diplomatically." The organization mostly is led by left-leaning Israelis while it receives funds from Arab and Muslim Americans.

Women in Somalia Whipped for Wearing Bras

Sexually deviant islamic barbarians in Somalia are publicly flogging women for wearing 'deceptive' bras. Despite that bitch advisor to hussein obama lying through her teeth by proclaiming sharia is "misunderstood" in the west and that it really is about equality and justice, sharia is brutally misogynistic, denying women basic human rights. But hussein obama chose her for the express purpose of deceiving Americans and making them less likely to resist sharia's implementation here. She is an absolute disgrace to women for being an enabler of the horrific treatment imposed upon women in the muslim world by sharia. Also, apologists for islam like to vilify the west for objectifying women in contrast to what they claim is islamic respect for women. This is their pathetic defense of islamic women being forced to cover to some degree or another. In truth, muslim "men" degrade and humiliate women to a far greater degree than anything done in the west. I suppose her claim that sharia is about equality is true in a sense that islam is equally oppressive to both men and women. Men are also being publicly whipped for not having a beard.
Whipped for wearing a 'deceptive' bra: Hardline Islamists in Somalia publicly flog women in Sharia crackdown

By Mail Foreign Service
Last updated at 11:16 PM on 16th October 2009


A hardline Islamist group in Somalia has begun publicly whipping women for wearing bras that they claim violate Islam as they are 'deceptive'.

The insurgent group Al Shabaab has sent gunmen into the streets of Mogadishu to round up any women who appear to have a firm bust, residents claimed yesterday.

The women are then inspected to see if the firmness is natural, or if it is the result of wearing a bra.

If they are found wearing a bra, they are ordered to remove it and shake their breasts, residents said.


Desperation: A woman feeds her child at a newly formed camp for refugees affected by drought in Somalia yesterday. Somalis are also contending with hardline Islamists seeking to impose a strict form of Sharia law on the country

Al Shabaab, which seeks to impose a strict interpretation of Sharia law over all Somalia, also amputated a foot and a hand each from two young men accused of robbery earlier this month.

They have also banned movies, musical ringtones, dancing at wedding ceremonies and playing or watching soccer.

'Al Shabaab forced us to wear their type of full veil and now they order us to shake our breasts,' a resident, Halima, told Reuters, adding that her daughters had been whipped on Thursday.

'They are now saying that breasts should be firm naturally, or just flat.'

Officials of Al Shabaab, which Washington says is Al Qaeda's proxy in the failed Horn of Africa state, declined to comment.

The group's hardline interpretation of Islamic law has shocked many Somalis, who are traditionally moderate Muslims. Some residents, however, give the insurgents credit for restoring order to the regions under their control.

Al Shabaab, which means 'youth' in Arabic, control large swathes of south and central Somalia.

Abdullahi Hussein, a student in north Mogadishu, said his elder brother was thrown behind bars when he fought back a man who humiliated their sister by asking her to remove her bra.

'My brother was jailed after he wrestled with a man that had beaten my sister and forced her to remove her bra. He could not stand it,' Hussein said.

Men were not spared the' moral cleansing'. Any man caught without a beard was been publicly whipped.

'I was beaten and my hair was cut off with a pair of scissors in the street,' Hussein said.

'My trouser was also cut up to the knee. They accused me of shaving my beard but I am only 18.

'They have arrested dozens of men and women. You just find yourself being whipped by a masked man as soon as leave your house.'

Turkey

Turkey should be immediately kicked out of NATO, all arms to that country halted. I do not want America to be defending this radical islamic country any longer. And Israel too must end arms sales to Turkey. Under erdogan, Turkey has rapidly been moving in an islamist, anti-American, anti-western and anti-Semitic direction and aligning itself with Iran and Syria.

Column One: How Turkey was lost
October 16, 2009
Caroline Glick, THE JERUSALEM POST

Once the apotheosis of a pro-Western, dependable Muslim democracy, this week Turkey officially left the Western alliance and became a full member of the Iranian axis.

It isn't that Ankara's behavior changed fundamentally in recent days. There is nothing new in its massive hostility toward Israel and its effusive solicitousness toward the likes of Syria and Hamas. Since the Islamist AKP party first won control over the Turkish government in the 2002 elections, led by AKP chairman Recip Tayyip Erdogan, the Turks have incrementally and inexorably moved the formerly pro-Western Muslim democracy into the radical Islamist camp populated by the likes of Iran, Syria, Hizbullah, al-Qaida and Hamas.

What made Turkey's behavior this week different from its behavior in recent months and years is that its attacks were concentrated, unequivocal and undeniable for everyone outside of Israel's scandalously imbecilic and flagellant media.

Until this week, both Israel and the US were quick to make excuses for Ankara. When in 2003 the AKP-dominated Turkish parliament prohibited US forces from invading Iraq through Kurdistan, the US blamed itself. Rather than get angry at Turkey, the Bush administration argued that its senior officials had played the diplomatic game poorly.

In February 2006, when Erdogan became the first international figure to host Hamas leaders on an official state visit after the jihadist group won the Palestinian elections, Jerusalem sought to explain away his diplomatic aggression. Israeli leaders claimed that Erdogan's red carpet treatment for mass murderers who seek the physical destruction of Israel was not due to any inherent hostility on the part of the AKP regime toward Israel. Rather, it was argued that Ankara simply supported democracy and that the AKP, as a formerly outlawed Islamist party, felt an affinity toward Hamas as a Muslim underdog.

Jerusalem made similar excuses for Ankara when during the 2006 war with Hizbullah Turkey turned a blind eye to Iranian weapons convoys to Lebanon that traversed Turkey; when Turkey sided with Hamas against Israel during Operation Cast Lead, and called among other things for Israel to be expelled from the UN; and when Erdogan caused a diplomatic incident this past January by castigating President Shimon Peres during a joint appearance at the Davos conference. So, too, Turkey's open support for Iran's nuclear weapons program and its galloping trade with Teheran and Damascus, as well as its embrace of al-Qaida financiers have elicited nothing more than grumbles from Israel and America.

Initially, this week Israel sought to continue its policy of making excuses for Turkish aggression against it. On Sunday, after Turkey disinvited the IAF from the Anatolian Eagle joint air exercise with Turkey and NATO, senior officials like Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon and opposition leader Tzipi Livni tried to make light of the incident, claiming that Turkey remains Israel's strategic ally.

Obama Administration Strategy to Keep Blaming Bush

The thing to do in Afghanistan is either to listen to General McChrystal and increase the number of troops or send them home. But because this miscreant in the White House is too feckless to make a decision either way, he is going to leave things as is, which places our soldiers in danger without the added forces. So the White House strategy is to simply focus attention away from
obama's incompetence and indecisiveness and place the blame on the Bush administration when the inevitable disaster ensues as the result of obama's indecision. These bastards are playing politics with the lives of our soldiers.

White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel today shifted the burden for the current situation in Afghanistan back to the Bush administration, saying that the U.S. was now "beginning at scratch" after eight years of war because of key strategic
questions that "never got asked."

More on Rifqa Bary's Plight

There is a special place in hell reserved for Ohio governor Strickland, who is bought and paid for by the muslim mafia. What's the life of a teenage girl compared to receiving campaign cash and votes from the muslim community as far as he's concerned. Instead of taking a moral stance in protecting Rifqa, Strickland is taking the side of CAIR and her muslim parents who have threatened to kill her for being an apostate.

Throwing Rifqa to the wolves


FP: Pamela Geller, welcome back to Frontpage Interview.

Rifqa Bary is being sent back to Ohio. You have been following the developments. Tell us what is going on and what it means.

Geller: Rifqa Bary is a teenage apostate. She escaped her devout Muslim home when her parents were advised by members of their extremist mosque that Rifqa had converted to Christianity.

Rifqa Bary’s father threatened to kill her if “she had this Jesus” in her heart. And so she ran away to Florida, as far away as she could get, and stayed with sympathetic Christians. She has since been placed in foster care, and the battle rages on to get this young woman to return to her devout Muslim family and Muslim community. Having spoken to many apostates in the States, living as a Christian in a devout Muslim household is not an option, despite her father’s dubious assertions.

FP: So what happened in court?

Geller: There were key developments in Judge Daniel Dawson’s juvenile court yesterday. It was a bizarre scene. Ohio started their own proceedings to get Rifqa back when they lost jurisdiction two months back. So two courts met at the same time on the same matter; both listening to each other’s statements via audio link. Both judges were deciding the case of whether Rifqa Bary goes back to Ohio. To say this was unusual is understatemen.

The upshot is that Ohio has jurisdiction and the Florida court maintains emergency jurisdiction at least until the 27h of October. The law is clear on this.

FP: Is Rifqa safe in Ohio?

Geller: No, I do not believe she is. As soon as she ran away, Ohio law enforcement dismissed her charges of abuse — before they had even conducted an investigation. A month ago, Ohio Governor Strickland publicly stated that he wanted Rifqa back in Ohio. Strickland has been a supporter of CAIR. Not surprising, as he has been on the receiving end of substantial dollars from the Muslim community. CAIR is very involved in the case. They are advising Mohamed and Aysha Bary (Rifqa’s parents). The Muslim community and particularly the Noor Mosque, will not be warm to such a vocal apostate. Imagine the psychological abuse for a 17 year old girl upon her return. 75 pound Rfqa vs the Islamic machine. David meets Goliath.

The media refuses to discuss apostasy, but the motive behind the threat is apostasy. It is verboten in the court room.

There is an upside. The parents have been very dodgy, dishonest even, on their immigration status. Time and time again they have ignored court orders to produce copies of their immigration documents. This is a key issue, because when Rifqa ran away, her mother had packed all of the family’s belongings and said they were going back to Sri Lanka. This is what I believe the family, the community, CAIR, and the Islamic machine really wants: to get Rifqa back to Sri Lanka.

I asked an apostate from Sri Lanka who showed up at the hearing yesterday to provide moral support for Rifqa, if Rifqa would be safe in Sri Lanka (not a Muslim majority country). She said,

“No. She will die, she will die in her society. Society won’t leave her alone. Even if the family, Mother and Father has a little sympathy, but not society, society is worse because she has gone too far. The society will never leave the family in peace. They have to take a stand for this, because it is the shame. Rifqa has brought a shame for their religion and for their society.”

The judge is aware of this, because he ruled he would not release Rifqa until the family’s immigration documents were submitted to the court. Then Mohamed Bary’s lawyer, belligerent and rude, made all sorts of wild accusations. He alleged that John Stemberger (Rifqa’s lawyer) was going to kidnap Rifqa and “squirrel her out of the country”. When in fact that appears to be the Islamic plan, but that is typical: blame it on “right wing extremists” or “anti-Muslim bigots”. Hence the insane accusations in the court room. But the bottom line is Rifqa will not leave Florida until the immigration papers are filed. And the Bary lawyer has been threatened with contempt should he not produce them.

This is a tinderbox. But for now, Rifqa is safe in Florida. If the issue is not resolved by the end of October, a judicial review has been tentatively scheduled for November 10. I do not believe the parents will provide the documents. And then? Stay tuned.

UNHRC Endorses Goldstone

Not the least bit surprisingly, the UNHRC endorsed the Goldstone report. With all the wars, massacres and other human rights atrocities going on in the world, it is solely Israel which is subjected to international legal proceedings regarding military operations. I have said before that Israel should have ruthlessly fought hamas, including shooting and bombing its way through their human shields. If Israel is going to be persecuted anyway, falsely accused of henious atrocities even as it has, more than any other country, bent over backwards to avoid killing the enemy population which supports the terrorists, then Israel might as well be as ruthless as she is accused of anyway. That way at least hamas and hezbollah would no longer exist to terrorize it.

Israel had to vie for the support of western countries.The west should naturally be on the side of Israel without any prodding, yet they completely lack any courage or moral clarity. The west needs to stop groveling to the arab and islamic block of nations and the UN should be shut-down for the pathetic farce it is.

UNHRC endorses Goldstone’s Gaza report by large majority


JPost.com Staff , THE JERUSALEM POST

Despite Israeli lobbying efforts against the Goldstone Report, the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva endorsed the document on Friday, a move that will send it on to more powerful UN bodies in New York for action.

The resolution passed 25-6, with mostly developing countries in favor and the United States and five European countries opposing. Eleven mostly European and African countries abstained, while Britain, France and three other members of the 47-nation body declined to vote.

The Palestinians, through Egypt, Nigeria, Pakistan and Tunisia, had submitted the resolution to the council, which called for an endorsement of the Goldstone Report that accuses Israel of committing war crimes and possible crimes against humanity during Operation Cast Lead.

The resolution also condemned Israeli human rights violations in east Jerusalem, the West Bank and Gaza.

Although the Goldstone report also accuses Hamas of war crimes, the five-page resolution explicitly mentions only Israeli violations of international law.

Based on the recommendations in the report, the document will now move on to the UN General Assembly and the Security Council. The report asks that the Security Council forward it to the International Criminal Court, so that it could be used as a basis to prosecute Israelis for war crimes.

US diplomat Douglas M. Griffiths told the council Washington was disappointed with the outcome of the vote. The United States had wanted the report to stay in Geneva, and is likely to veto any action in the 15-member Security Council.

Muslim Advisor to Obama Defends Sharia

In another example of newspeak, a hijab wearing muslim woman advisor to hussein obama said that sharia law represents "gender justice" not the brutal repression of women. You see, those of us in the west who associate sharia with "honor" killings and female genital mutilation, forced veiling, burkas etc. have it all wrong. Now I realize that we have just been misinformed Islamophobes who don't understand that the real islam is about peace and the equality of the sexes. I'm so glad Dalia Mogahed is in a position to straighten us out. This woman was obviously put in this "job" to confuse and mislead gullible infidels. We can expect more outrages such as this coming from an administration led by a marxist and muslim.

Barack Obama adviser says Sharia Law is misunderstood
President Barack Obama's adviser on Muslim affairs, Dalia Mogahed, has provoked controversy by appearing on a British television show hosted by a member of an extremist group to talk about Sharia Law.

Miss Mogahed, appointed to the President's Council on Faith-Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships, said the Western view of Sharia was "oversimplified" and the majority of women around the world associate it with "gender justice".

The White House adviser made the remarks on a London-based TV discussion programme hosted by Ibtihal Bsis, a member of the extremist Hizb ut Tahrir party.


The group believes in the non-violent destruction of Western democracy and the creation of an Islamic state under Sharia Law across the world.

Miss Mogahed appeared alongside Hizb ut Tahrir's national women's officer, Nazreen Nawaz.

During the 45-minute discussion, on the Islam Channel programme Muslimah Dilemma earlier this week, the two members of the group made repeated attacks on secular "man-made law" and the West's "lethal cocktail of liberty and capitalism".

They called for Sharia Law to be "the source of legislation" and said that women should not be "permitted to hold a position of leadership in government".

Miss Mogahed made no challenge to these demands and said that "promiscuity" and the "breakdown of traditional values" were what Muslims admired least about the West.

She said: "I think the reason so many women support Sharia is because they have a very different understanding of sharia than the common perception in Western media.

"The majority of women around the world associate gender justice, or justice for women, with sharia compliance.

"The portrayal of Sharia has been oversimplified in many cases."

Turkey Turning Hostile to Israel

The following only goes to show that no muslim country can ever be trusted and we should never be lulled into believing a muslim country can truly be an ally. By their actions, Turkey is doing more harm to itself since it has received first rate military equipment from Israel.

Turkey is Disengaging from Israel


While reconciling with past enemies, Turkey increasingly shunning Israel

Eldad Beck,YNET

BERLIN – The historic reconciliation agreement signed Saturday between Turkey and Armenia constitutes further testament to the positive changes undergone by Turkey in recent year. A government with an Islamic orientation was able to impressively promote two highly sensitive issues for Turkish public opinion: Recognizing the cultural rights of the Kurdish minority and normalizing ties with Armenia.

The strong sense of Turkish nationalism previously prevented any compromise with the Kurds, for fear this will open the door for boosting their national demands and in turn for a renewed territorial disintegration by Turkey.

Tayyip Erdogan’s administration realized that it is precisely openness towards the Kurdish minority that will prompt a greater sense of belonging among them and weaken their aspiration to join other Kurdish areas, mostly in Iraq.

Erdogan faced a similar choice vis-à-vis Armenia: Perpetuating the frozen status-quo in the ties with Turkey’s neighbor would have boosted the global Armenian campaign for recognition of the massacre committed by the Turks as an organized and methodical genocide. Turkey would have been faced with all the possible implications of such recognition, especially if it would have also been backed by the US Congress.

Erdogan decided to preempt this blow, and while taking advantage of the weak Armenian economy (which suffered gravely as result of the closure of its borders with Turkey and Azerbaijan) managed to secure (with Swiss mediation) a reconciliation agreement that is difficult for both for the Turks and for the Armenians – yet postpones to an unknown future date the question of addressing the Armenian holocaust and entrusts future research on its scope in the hands of historians.

Deliberate disengagement policy
Erdogan managed to also improve the tense relations with Syria, in large part thanks to Damascus’ increasing isolation on the international stage ahead of Barack Obama’s elections victory. We should also make note of the tightening relationship with Tehran, after a long period of adherence to the position adopted by the West, which made sure to minimize its contacts with the Iranian regime.

The regional emphasis in Turkey’s foreign policy stems not only from tactical diplomatic and political considerations, but also from a broad strategic vision that wishes to position Turkey as a central and influential force, thereby improving its status in the slow and ongoing talks on joining the European Union. On the one hand, the Turks meet European demands, yet on the other hand they signal that they have options for other regional alliances.

It is difficult to ignore the fact that precisely at a time when Turkey reaches out to its past enemies, the Turkish administration is adopting an increasingly hostile policy vis-à-vis its former great ally – Israel.

This is clearly not another momentary emotional outburst in the face of Palestinian suffering in Gaza, but rather, a deliberate disengagement policy, which is also meant to undermine the status of the Turkish army – the greatest rival of the Erdogan administration.

Is Erdogan seeking to utilize the growing anti-Israeli sentiments and anti-Semitic feelings on the Turkish street, which is also being incited by radical religious elements closely affiliated with his regime, in order to create deterrence vis-à-vis nationalistic and secular forces fearing a religious takeover?

This will not be the first time where a Middle Eastern regime is exploiting Israel hatred in order to reinforce its domestic status and advance other issues. Such Turkey should not have a place in the European Union. If Israel’s security and existence are indeed important to the Europeans, they need to make this position clear to their Turkish interlocutors.

Obama Stalling on Iranian Sanctions

Clearly hussein obama is stalling for time waiting for the mullahs to cross the finish line regarding the acquisition of nuclear weapons. Even conservatives who are critical of obama’s policies believe that he acts out of weakness and naivete when in fact he knows exactly what he is doing and is purposely working for the dismantlement of American power and the destruction of Israel.

Obama Attempts To Delay Iranian Sanctions Bill

www.jewishpolicycenter.org/1464/obama-attempts-to-delay-iranian-sanctions-bill

Legislators are growing increasingly frustrated with President Barack Obama’s seeming unwillingness to pull the trigger on an Iran sanctions package that is already locked and loaded. The American public should be frustrated, too.

The Iran Refined Petroleum Sanctions Act (IRPSA), if enacted, would put the squeeze on foreign oil companies that currently help the Mullahs refine petroleum, as well as the insurance companies that underwrite this trade. If the sanctions work, they could stem the flow of 30 to 40 percent of Iranian oil, since the Mullahs don’t actually have sufficient refining capacity to meet their domestic needs. In short, IRPSA could deal a fiscal body blow to Iran and destabilize the regime, as a means to derail its nuclear ambitions.

So, why are Democrats like Senators Chuck Schumer (NY) and Chris Dodd (CT)unhappy? The same reason why Republicans are.

Congress rolled out the initiative back in April that mirrored candidate Obama’s call for gasoline sanctions during the 2008 presidential campaign. Fast forward six months, and it’s still stuck on the Hill, despite the fact that it has an astounding 327 co-sponsors in the House (HR 2475) and 75 co-sponsors in the Senate (S 908). That’s more than three-quarters of Congress.

While that should easily be enough to get IRPSA into law, the administration has signaled to lawmakers that it needs more time. At a recent hearing of the Senate Banking Committee, Treasury Undersecretary Stuart Levey testified that he was still working on a “comprehensive” plan that “takes into account Iran’s potential vulnerabilities and those activities that have the greatest influence on Iran’s decision makers.”

Levey has worked tirelessly on Iran since assuming his post in 2004. He knows exactly what the sanctions package would look like. The problem, according to congressional staffers and think tankers who have been following the legislation, is that Obama appears ambivalent – caught somewhere between his call for dialogue and insisting that an Iranian nuclear weapon is “unacceptable.”

The reason for the president’s ambivalence is clear. Gasoline sanctions only have thepotential to cause a spike in Iran’s gasoline imports, and possibly weaken the regime. Even if IRPSA hits Iran in the pocketbook, as former Ambassador to the United NationsJohn Bolton notes, the Mullahs are not likely to change course. If he’s right, the enforcement and subsequent failure of sanctions would only reinforce the notion that military intervention may be the only viable option left.

Obama seems eager to postpone reaching this excruciating conclusion.

Leadership, however, is about making those tough choices. The President must give sanctions enough time to work – or fail. Neglecting to do so will only limit U.S. options asTehran draws ever closer to its dangerous aims.

The Islamic Mafia

A new book is out detailing islamist plans to use American freedoms to undermine us and to replace our constitution with sharia law. This information comes from an undercover investigation of CAIR. Those who went undercover to infiltrate CAIR should receive the presidential medal of freedom. Of course I would never expect that to happen under this president who is on the side of the jihadists, not freedom-seeking people.

'Now we have proof …'
Exclusive: Joseph Farah spotlights new book he calls 'ACORN sting on steroids'

"The radical Islamists overseas have repeatedly told us how they intend to infiltrate all areas of our society, and use the freedoms that are guaranteed under our Constitution to eventually replace it with Shariah law. They have telegraphed their intent. Now we have proof," says Rep. Sue Myrick, co-founder of of the Congressional Anti-Terrorism Caucus of more than 100 members.
What is that proof?
It's a new book – out today, published by WND Books. It's called "Muslim Mafia: Inside the Secret Underworld That's Conspiring to Islamize America," by P. David Gaubatz and Paul Sperry. And it's been a long, hard journey bringing it to you.
Think of it as the ACORN sting on steroids.
It's the result, in part, of a six-month-long undercover operation inside the Council of American-Islamic Relations, one of the most visible and prominent Muslim lobby groups in the country. You see its representatives and spokesmen on national television. You hear them whining about anti-Muslim bias and bigotry in the U.S. You hear them talk about supposed civil liberties violations against those who do nothing but practice the Islamic faith.
What you don't hear much about is the group's associations and support for known terrorists and its relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood – the same organization that spawned al-Qaida, Islamic Jihad, Hamas and Hezbollah.
That's the story you will read in Muslim Mafia – based on years of investigative reporting, recently declassified FBI evidence and 12,000 pages of compelling internal documents gathered in the daring covert penetration of CAIR.
But the book is more than a Muslim Brotherhood conspiracy to support terrorism, infiltrate the American system and move the country toward Shariah law. It's also the real-life story of a brave father and son team who worked on the undercover operation – not over a few days or weeks, but for six long months. It's the daring story of how Gaubatz's son Chris and two hijab-wearing female interns ventured inside the Muslim Brotherhood beast.
That's why I call it the ACORN sting on steroids.
This sophisticated and prolonged undercover investigation inside the headquarters of a terror-supporting front group was both more dangerous and devastating in terms of the volume of smoking-gun evidence collected. Essentially, this team of brave private investigators went behind enemy lines and lived to tell a shocking story of terror, fraud and sedition.
"The evidence found in the investigation is incontrovertible – after all, it's their own documents laid bare," says co-author and investigative journalist Paul Sperry, a former WND Washington bureau chief. "With more than 12,000 pages of support documentation, more than 40 pages of footnotes and an appendix containing more than 50 pages of exclusive confidential documents, 'Muslim Mafia' offers hard proof of the Muslim Brotherhood's subversive strategy against America."
And don't think for a moment that the title of the book itself is some kind of anti-Islamic slur. The Muslim Brotherhood is known within Islamist circles as the "Ikhwan mafia," because of its highly organized structure, centralized control and covert operations. Like the mob, it has its own internal bylaws, security and military infrastructure. A network of front groups, cut-outs and shell companies shield its criminal activities from the authorities.

Obama is Detrimental to America

I heard a disturbing revelation from Jeff Kuhner of the Washington Times who was interviewed on a local talk radio show, that vladimir putin has said Russia reserves the right to launch a preemptive nuclear attack, saying that America and NATO are still threats. He also said that he has confirmed from inside sources in the Kremlin that putin regards obama as the weakest American president ever. None of this is being reported by the msm.

The Latest on Rifqa Bary

A judge ordered that Rifqa Bary, a muslim convert to Christianity who ran away because she believes her parents will murder her for being an apostate, is to be returned to her parents on the grounds that she could not prove her life was endangered. How the hell is she supposed to prove this if her parents merely made verbal threats to her privately? On the Greta Van Susteran show, there was a debate between two defense attorneys. The creep defending her parents argued that the burden of proof is on Rifqa. I guess when she winds up dead, then that will be sufficient proof. The funny thing is that he acknowledged that "radical" muslims do perpetrate honor killings but that we don't know these people and its unfair to compare them to the "radicals", as if there is a peaceful islam and the radicals represent a separate fringe. But it is precisely because we don't know these people, why we must ere on the side of Rifqa. Disappointingly the usually sensible host filling in for Greta also argued to the lawyer taking Rifqa's side, that it was unfair to judge her parents as being a threat just because they are muslim. So, this bitch is more concerned with being fair to muslims then protecting the life of this young girl. I suspect Greta would have been on the side of Rifqa, but who knows.

In a society where authorities have ripped children away from their parents, accusing them of engaging in child porn because the parents had innocent photos of their kids taking a bath, won't even protect a teenager who's muslim parents might kill her for converting. But it is precisely because they are muslims that the authorities will not lift a finger to protect this child. Politics, political correctness and concern over the fragile sensitivities of the muslim community all take precedence over Rifqa's life.

They won't kill her immediately, but someday when all of this dies down and the media spotlight is off of this case, it may be six months or a year from now, we might be reading about Rifqa Bary having gone "missing". The story won't appear in the mainstream media however.

Obama Failed to Acknowledge Columbus Day

Before the Monday Night Football game, obama made a statement honoring Hispanic heritage month. He purposely chose to do it on Columbus Day, which btw, he did not even bother to acknowledge at all. Hussein obama is a racist who is constantly using his power to stick it to and show his contempt for white Americans and America's European cultural heritage.

The NFL itself, in its desire to pander, chose to honor Hispanic heritage month, even to the point of calling the first penalty in Spanish. Would it be racist to expect Spanish speaking immigrants to learn English like all other immigrant groups before them? What would have become of this country had all of these disparate ethnic groups chose to maintain their own languages? We would have hundreds of languages being spoken in this country and we surely would not have survived as a Republic.

J Street Unmasked

Contrary to its claim of being pro-Israel and pretending that its policy prescriptions are in the best interests of Israel, this statement makes it abundantly clear that J Street is actively working for the elimination of Israel as a Jewish state. Is it any wonder why it receives money from muslim donors? Not that this comes as a surprise to me and many others, but this statement should leave no doubt even in the minds of liberal Jews that this wolf in sheep's clothing is using its Jewish identity to purposely undermine the state of Israel, its security and very existence. Israel's enemies understand this very clearly, which is why they donate money to the group.

"I can't help fearing that the Zionist enterprise will one day be seen to have done the Jewish people more harm than good. Our tenacious hold on this strip of homeland has become the scapegoat for the world's terrorism and this wouldn't be the case if we remained a people of the diaspora." -- Ayelet Waldman (jstreet adviser)

The Hypocrisy of Goldstone and the World Community

How come we haven't heard anything about this war and the use of disproportionate force by Yemen and saudi arabia?

The latest paroxysm of Yemen's five-year war with the rebel Houthis has left more than 2,000 dead in less than a month and up to 150,000 homeless. Yemeni government troops are battling around 15,000 Iranian-armed and trained Houthi rebels dug into the northern Sadaa mountains on the Saudi Arabian border. Saudi air force bombers are pounding the rebels and the Egyptian air force and navy are ferrying ammunition to the Yemen army with US encouragement and funding.

So when are we going to recieve a report about saudi and Yemeni war crimes? There's no double standard being employed against Israel, is there? Read the rest of the article.

Rush vs the NFL

Once again I don't like to be off-topic, but I'm compelled to comment on the current brouhaha over Rush Limbaugh's bid to purchase the St.Louis Rams. Craven owners as well as black players of course are objecting. I'd like to know why they welcomed back dog killer michael vick, but Rush is persona non grata? In other words, making speech which some find offensive is worse than horrific acts of violence as far as the hypocritical NFL is concerned. Did any of the Philadelphia Eagles players object to playing with vick? I seriously doubt it. Other players who have committed acts of violence as well as involvement with drugs have also been welcomed back to the NFL. So why is the NFL suddenly feigning as though they have such high-minded ideals? It's gotten to such a point where even sports can no longer be enjoyed because its become so politicized. And its not just sports, but all forms of entertainment; movies, TV, music in which performers make leftist political statements at their concerts, and movies and television shows shove left-wing agendas down the throats of viewers.

And what of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton having the gall to falsely accuse Rush of making a living off of playing upon the fears of white people. These two racist and anti-Semitic creeps have been making money in the race racket for decades. Sharpton incited against the Jews of Crown Heights after a black child was accidentally hit by a car and killed. A mob of blacks attacked the visibly Jewish Yankel Rosenbaum and he was stabbed to death by one of them. And several people were killed in an arson attack on Freddy's Fashion Mart in Harlem after Sharpton incited against the store's Jewish owner. There were also attacks against Korean fruit stand owners due to the incitement of Sharpton. And we musn't forget the Tawana Brawley hoax. This bum should be in prison.
