Jihad Against Buddhists in Burma

As if its not horrible enough to be victims of islamic terrorism and being robbed of their lands by muslim invaders, the tragedy is compounded by the western media's portrayal of the Buddhist victims as the aggressors. This inversion of aggressor and victim is what has been done to the Serbs and to Israel. The western media has been bought out by wealthy muslim interests and they are serving their islamic supremacist masters well. Atlas:
Jihad in Burma: Jihadi wars, slaughtered Buddhists and Hindus, Enemedia spins manufactured Muslim myth Here again we see the same same bloody Islamic pattern in Burma. Commit jihad, slaughter non-Muslims and then cry victim. The corrupt enemedia quickly laps it up ("for a price, Ugarte, for a price"), inverts the truth, and voila, the real victims are transformed into the aggressors. Just like Bosnia. The modern-day caliphate, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) is calling on the UN and various world organizations to investigate the “massacres” of Rohingya Muslims in Buddhist-majority Myanmar. When it is, in fact, the Muslims slaughterng the Buddhists. Let us hope that the Buddhists fiercely defend their land, their women and their children from thse monsters.

The Stealth Jihad and the Government's Complicity

Chris Christie, we aren't crazy. Sharia law is a threat to America. It is the goal of muslim brotherhood front groups to implement sharia law in America and in fact it has been applied in American courts. I'm sick of politicians in both parties treating islam as though it's just another benign religious faith when it is in fact a lethal, totalitarian, imperialistic political ideology. I'm sick of being told we must tolerate and respect an ideology masquerading as a religion, which seeks to forcibly convert, subjugate or kill unbelievers. I'm also sick of alleged conservatives proclaiming their patriotism, adherence to the constitution and their deep committment to the nation's national security and the preservation of American ideals of liberty and so forth. If that were truly the case, those Republicans would not be silent on the gravest threat to this country. They would have stood with Michele Bachmann and her call for an investigation into muslim brotherhood operatives in our government. Instead, most of the GOP either condemned her or stayed silent on the matter. The majority of GOPers silence on the civilizational or stealth jihad taking place in America reveals that they are more concerned with advancing their careers then in defending America and preserving our future. Therefore they will not make any waves. Frontpagemag:
The Threat of Sharia and the Leadership of America’s Two Parties Posted by Eric Allen Bell Bio ↓ on Aug 27th, 2012 Comments ↓ Yes, there IS a war against women! Imagine you were a teenage girl in Pakistan, and your parents married you off very young. The marriage is a disaster but you have no rights. You flee with your daughter to the U.S., you hide out for two years until the detective he hires finds you. In Pakistan, under the Islamic law there, the means of obtaining a divorce is only available to a man, but never of course to a woman. He demands full custody of your daughter. Oh, and he’s accused you of adultery. You consider flying to Pakistan, to contest the divorce, but adultery is a crime under Islamic Law in Pakistan, a crime which is punishable by death. You will literally be arrested the moment you de-board the plane, in Karachi. You could face prison time, or even be stoned to death. And in Pakistan, your testimony under Islamic law is worth only half that of a man’s. Then you remember, you’re in America now and you have rights. So, you petition the American courts, filing for a real divorce. But unfortunately, your husband has a Pakistani judge as an expert witness who he flies in to testify in the Maryland court – and the judge accepts his view of Shariah’s “best interests of the child” as the same as Maryland’s “best interests of the child. You and your daughter are simply outgunned. And to your surprise, you find out that the American courts have been convinced to bow to Islamic Law (the Sharia), and you are now without any money, you have lost your home, and you have even lost your daughter. Does this sound just too crazy to be true – like something that just could not happen in America? In fact, this kind of reckless disregard for American law, in American courts, is actually more common than one might think. This scenario resembles what happened to one woman in Maryland, and it’s happening all over the country.

State Department Backs the Jew-Hating Corries

Their daughter put herself in the pathway of a bulldozer in the cause of supporting genocidal terrorists. Our islam-appeasing government is helping the Corries appeal the verdict of their meritless and politically motivated suit against the IDF. This is the same State Department that opposed a suit against Iran filed by American victims of jihad terrorism. This adds to the State Department’s long historical record of hostility to Jews and Israel and favoritism towards Arab and islamic nations. State Department Briefing:
QUESTION: Yeah. Now that an Israeli court has ruled against – MS. NULAND: Can you tell me who you are? QUESTION: Sure. Josh Lederman with AP. MS. NULAND: Nice to see you, Josh. QUESTION: Nice to see you. MS. NULAND: So we’re double-teamed here on the AP. Welcome. QUESTION: Thank you. Now that an Israeli court has – MS. NULAND: It takes two of you to cover for Matt and for – (laughter) – anyway, sorry. QUESTION: No problem. MS. NULAND: I couldn’t resist. QUESTION: An Israeli court today ruled against the family of Rachel Corrie, the American who was killed by a bulldozer in Gaza. Is the U.S. satisfied with that investigation, and is the U.S. disappointed that the Israeli military hasn’t taken responsibility for her death? MS. NULAND: Well, first of all, we reiterate our condolences to the Corrie family on the tragic death of their daughter, Rachel. As you know, we’ve worked with the family all through this process, and we will continue to provide consular support. We understand the family’s disappointment with the outcome of the trial. Under Israeli law, the family has the right to appeal the verdict, and we’ve seen reports that they are considering doing that. So we will see how this proceeds going forward. Please.

A Just Verdict

Let’s bluntly state what the ISM actually is: a neo-nazi movement. If the driver of the bulldozer purposely ran over Rachel Corrie as the rabid Jew-haters of the world proclaim, then why were the others she was with not run over as well? In fact why haven’t there been hundreds of these nazi “activists” killed by the IDF if the Israelis are so brutal? The Corrie verdict International Solidarity Movement Culpable in the Death of Rachel Corrie Israel Not Guilty over Rachel Corrie, But What of Those Who Encouraged Her to Go to Gaza? The secular beatification of Rachel Corrie sums up everything that is wrong with modern solidarity with Palestine

Jihadists Infiltrating Conservative Movement

Unless the conservative movement and the GOP purges itself of the treasonous, pro-jihad bilge of grover norquist and his ilk, then they are no better than Obama, the democrats and the left on national security issues. NetWMD:
A Disturbing Event: The American Conservative Union Embraces an Islamist The conservative movement appears to be at a crossroads in its approach to the threat of Islamic supremacism—not only abroad but at home. Does the emergence of the Muslim Brotherhood as the dominant force of the “Arab Spring” bode ill for America? Or is the Brotherhood merely another “political actor” as the Obama administration would have us believe? Is Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, a potential security risk worth investigating, as Representative Michele Bachmann and four conservative congressmen have suggested? Or is the mere raising of this question a witch-hunt, as Senator John McCain and Speaker John Boehner and numerous Democrats maintain? …

IDF Acquitted in Death of Rachel Corey.

I feel as much empathy for the Corries as they and their daughter did towards the Israeli victims of jihad terrorism, which is nothing. They should be suing the ISM who used their daughter as a martyr for their nazi movement. Her ISM "friends" purposely stood by while the bulldozer accidentally ran over her. Their daughter died in the evil cause of protecting genocidal terrorists and the ethnic cleansing of Jews from their homeland. Weasel Zippers:
Israeli Court Acquits IDF In Rachel Corey Death Russian Today: An Israeli judge has found no error in the military investigation that acquitted the Israeli Defense Force of the killing of a US activist by a bulldozer. The judge reiterated that the death was an accident. ­Nine years after US activist Rachel Corrie was crushed to death by an Israeli army bulldozer, her family has been handed a verdict in their civil lawsuit against Israel.

Neil Armstrong and American Exceptionalism

Neil Armstrong and NASA represented American exceptionalism. Obama and the left are destroying everything that made America great. No longer is NASA's priority space exploration and scientific advancement. Under Obama it has become another tool for pandering to muslims and speaking of make believe muslim contributions to science. It should not be NASA's priority to make muslims feel good about themselves. If they want to feel good about themselves, perhaps they should actually achieve something and let go of their primitive and barbaric 7th century ideology. Sultan Knish:
A Small Step for One Man Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog 31 Comments The death of Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, takes place in the shadow of the death of the space program. Last year Armstrong had called the dismantling of the space program under Obama, leaving behind a shadow space agency: "embarrassing and unacceptable". Armstrong had proposed not only future investments, but along with other astronauts had sensibly proposed retaining the space shuttle program until they were ready, instead of scrapping the shuttle program and distributing viable shuttles to museums. Armstrong was critical of the Bolden regime at NASA that had stripped the space agency of its best people and its ability to conduct manned space exploration or even reach the International Space Station without begging passage on Soviet Soyuz tubs. "The reality that there is no flight requirement for a NASA pilot-astronaut for the foreseeable future is obvious and painful to all who have, justifiably, taken great pride in NASA’s wondrous space flight achievements during the past half century," Armstrong concluded his testimony. "In space fight, we are in the process of exhausting alternatives. I am hopeful that, in the near future, we will be doing the right thing." If we ever do get around to doing the right thing, in space or on the ground, Neil Armstrong will not be around to see it. The famously reclusive astronaut passed away after being drawn out to make a final bid at reviving the space program. His final contribution may be that he joined the many voices warning of the decline of America. His final legacy may be determined by whether the American people choose to listen to some of his final words.

Army in Denial that islam Motivates Murder of American Troops

Our soldiers are sickened by the abuse of dogs, women and children they witness being perpetrated by their "partners" in the Afghan National Security Forces and in Afghan islamic society at large. Yet in today’s politically correct and multicultural climate, we are not allowed to judge such a culture as being savage or to acknowledge American and western civilization to be superior. Bring our troops home. It is an excercise in futility to attempt to nation-build a barbaric culture. We are losing our soldiers for no purpose and they will continue to be killed because of our government’s refusal to acknowledge that islam is waging war against us and there are no muslim allies to be found.
Army Report Buried Islamic Motivations For Afghan Murders of US Troops By Andrew G. Bostom, AMERICAN THINKER On May 12, 2011 a US Army “Red Team” issued an unclassified report which purported to explain the burgeoning rash of murderous attacks (which have since escalated even further, still) by Afghan National Army (ANA) members on US and other NATO troops. Although the report is dominated by apologetic, cultural relativist drivel which attempts, in vain, to explain away these acts of murder committed against the US and NATO troops by their by ANA “allies,” it also includes a crudely buried, sub rosa truthful narrative. This latter discussion is all that matters, and bears full, clear exposure — particularly in light of the morally dubious excuse for the most recent spate of such killings of US troops. Specifically, General Allen in a pronouncement for which he should be forced to resign, maintained that Ramadan fasting, combined with operational tempo during the summer heat, were the drivers of these most recent killings of his own troops by Muslim ANA soldiers. What General Allen willfully ignores was laid out, albeit clumsily camouflaged, using plain language, fifteen months ago in the “Red Team” report. Based upon extensive interviews, US and NATO troops, as the report notes, were both disgusted with, and highly (and justifiably) suspicious of, the Islamically-sanctioned practices and behaviors of their Afghan military allies, and Afghan civilians. [p. 3] U.S. Soldiers’ views of ANSF [Afghan National Security Forces], particularly of the ANA, were…extremely negative. They reported pervasive illicit drug use, massive thievery, personal instability, dishonesty, no integrity, incompetence, unsafe weapons handling, corrupt officers, no real NCO [non-commissioned officer] corps, covert alliances/informal treaties with insurgents, high AWOL rates, bad morale, laziness, repulsive hygiene, and the torture of dogs. Perceptions of civilians were also negative stemming from their insurgent sympathies and cruelty towards women and children. [Specific elaborations on Afghan Muslim treatment of dogs, women, and children; pp. 44-45] Many US soldiers were appalled by the rampant torture of dogs and puppies they witnessed while being based with ANSF units. Many ANSF members are prone to inflicting abuse onto stray dogs they bring to the base for “entertainment” purposes. Other ANSF members, while not condoning the torture, fail to see any importance in such behaviors given the standing of dogs in Islam. Dogs are seen as vermin and many ANSF members find it inexplicable that anyone could be concerned about such “trivial matters,” and deeply resent any interference…This animal abuse is a substantial psychological stressor for many US soldiers and has been the cause of many serious social altercations with ANSF members…US soldiers reported that they had observed many cases of child abuse and neglect that infuriated them and alienated them from the civilian populace. They made it very clear that they wanted nothing to do with people who treat children so cruelly. Although not reported by the US soldiers who participated in this study. There have been numerous accounts of Canadian troops in Kandahar complaining about the rampant sexual abuse of children they have witnessed ANSF personnel commit, including the cultural practice of bacha bazi [link - ed], as well as the raping and sodomizing of little boys…Similarly, US soldiers…mentioned the poor treatment and virtual slavery of Women in Afghan society, and how they found such practices repugnant. They found it unpalatable to befriend other men who had such primitive beliefs; the cultural gulf was too wide. They were repulsed by the abuse and neglect they observed in how children are treated in Afghan society. US soldiers largely reported that they did not care for Afghan civilians due to these factors as well as their suspected sympathies for the insurgents.

Pakistani muslim Spy Scandal and muslim Brotherhood Infiltration Into Our Government

I'll be waiting for the hysterical denunciations by Walt and Mearsheimer along with the rest of their ilk, of the dangerous and treasonous islamic lobby and their heavy infiltration into our government. And what further gets my blood boiling is that the Pakistani muslim who spied for Pakistan is going to get just a two year prison term while Jonathan Pollard has been languishing in prison for 25 years. And while the Pollard case got a huge amount of media attention at the time, no one has even heard about this case. When it comes to islam, the GOP is just as problematic as the dems, the leftists and the media. NRO:
Understanding the Muslim Brotherhood A recent case sheds light on the organization, but most Republicans ignore it. By Andrew C. McCarthy Andrew C. McCarthy I’m a big fan of the 1 percent. No, not the dastardly 1 percent of Occupy Wall Street myth; I’m partial, instead, to the 1 percent of Congress that takes seriously the threat of Islamic-supremacist influence operations against our government. The people have 435 representatives serving in the House and another hundred in the Senate. Of these 535, a total of 288 are Republicans — 241 and 47 in the lower and upper chambers, respectively. Of these, only five House conservatives — five — have had the fortitude to raise concerns about the Islamist connections of government officials entrusted with positions enabling them to shape U.S. policy. Think about that. Republicans purport to be the national-security party. For decades this claim was well founded, starting with Ronald Reagan’s clarity in seeing the Soviets as enemies to be defeated, not accommodated. President Reagan’s plan for the Cold War was, “We win, they lose,” and he pulled it off because he was not under any illusions about who “they” were. But something happened to the GOP in the Bush years. For all the welcome understanding that Bill Clinton was wrong — that the jihad could not be indicted into submission — the Bush administration never learned a fundamental truth that Reagan knew only too well: You cannot defeat your enemies unless you understand them, and you cannot even begin to understand them if you are too craven to name them.

"Rabbis" For Obama

How can I feel anything but disdain for "Rabbis" who instead of being the strongest voices for the Jewish people's absolute rights to Israel, they use their position to legitimize the lies and historical revisionism of Israel's genocidal enemies. The Jewicidal Jewish Voice For Peace should more aptly be named Jewish Voice for Surrender to Genocidal Jihad Terrorists.
Conservatives to Obama: Cut ties with 'radical' rabbi JPost: By JTA 08/24/2012 10:33 Two conservatives groups call on US president to reject those "Rabbis for Obama" associated with Jewish Voice for Peace. Photo: REUTERS/Larry Downing WASHINGTON – Two conservative groups called on the Obama campaign to sever ties with a "radical" on its newly-released list of more than 600 rabbis who support the president's reelection. The campaign rejected the demand. Related: • #USelections2012: A nasty campaign • Adelsons donate to PAC supporting Boteach The Republican Jewish Coalition on Thursday “expressed profound outrage” that Rabbi Lynn Gottlieb, a Renewal rabbi from California that the RJC described as a "radical rabbi," is part of Rabbis for Obama, which was launched Tuesday. Gottlieb sits on the advisory board of Jewish Voice for Peace, a group that is active in the campaign to use boycott, divestment and sanctions to pressure Israel into ending the occupation of the West Bank, and that has no official position on whether Israel should exist as a Jewish state. In September 2008, she was part of a coalition of religious groups that spoke about the Holocaust and Palestinian rights with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at a New York hotel. At that event, she said she favored face-to-face reconciliation, and asked Ahmadinejad, who has denied the Holocaust, to "change the way you speak about the Holocaust." Gottlieb is one of eight Jewish Voice for Peace members on the list.

PA's Lies and Historical Revisionism

The PA savages accuse Jews of doing what they themselves are guilty of, making false claims based on fantasy and legend. PMW:
Abbas and the PA used term "alleged Temple" at least 97 times in 2011 and 2012 in its ongoing campaign to deny Jerusalem's Jewish history Mahmoud Abbas: "No peace, security, or stability" without evacuation of Jews from Jerusalem - "our holy city" by Itamar Marcus Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has again denied Jerusalem's Jewish history and the existence of the Temple, referring to the "alleged Temple" in a statement this week. The use of the term "alleged Temple" to deny Jewish history has been Palestinian Authority policy under Abbas for many years. Palestinian Media Watch has documented that the entire Palestinian Authority leadership and the structures under its control actively and repeatedly use the term "alleged Temple." "Alleged Temple" 97 times: Palestinian Media Watch checked its archives and found that the official PA press reported the use of the expression "alleged Temple" at least 97 times by heads of the PA, its institutions and its media, just in 2011 and 2012. This number refers only to the use of this term. The PA has denied Jewish history in Israel and Jerusalem hundreds of times as part of its official policy, and has also fabricated an ancient Palestinian history in the land. Mahmoud Abbas himself in a speech that was read by his advisor on the eve of Israel's Independence Day, both denied Israel's history and falsely claimed the existence of a 9000 year-old Palestinian history, adding: "Netanyahu, you are incidental in history. We are the people of history. We are the owners of history." [PA TV (Fatah), May 14, 2011]

Avigdor Lieberman Grovels to Ashton

Avigdor Liberman is a guy consided to be far to the right. Yet here he is groveling to Catherine Ashton. I’m tired of Israel’s leaders desperately trying to convince the world of how peaceful their intentions are, of how willing they are to surrender their land to their terrorist enemies. Israel’s true friends know that Israel isn’t to blame for the bloodshed in the Middle East and its enemies around the world are never going to be convinced that Israel is anything other than a “genocidal”, “racist”, “apartheid” state no matter how much Israeli officials plead their case. Israpundit:
Baroness Ashton, I appreciated the opportunity to meet with you July 24th in Brussels, on the occasion of the Israel-EU Association Council. We discussed many regional issues of importance; however, I would like to further share some key ideas with you, and hence, this letter. I would like to update you regarding the current situation of Israel’s relationship with the Palestinian Authority (PA). As a preamble, I would like to emphasize that the purpose of this letter is to demonstrate Israel’s goodwill, desire to build trust and sincere desire to create a positive atmosphere vis a vis the PA, with the goal of bringing our neighbors back to the table of direct negotiations. Unfortunately, we have encountered repeated Palestinian patterns of refusal and consistent attempts to turn to pointless activity, counterproductive to any constructive efforts. Madame, it is important to provide this update to you, because in my opinion, the information herein is not properly represented or reflected in the policy of the European Union or the Quartet on this subject. Israel has in recent months undertaken several significant gestures towards the Palestinians: Israeli Finance Minister Yuval Shteinitz and PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad concluded (July 31) arrangements with respect to the transfer of goods between Israel and the PA and related tax procedures. These steps, which were recommended by the International Monetary Fund, will improve the PA’s tax system, increase revenues and bolster the Palestinian economy. In light of the PA‘s budget crisis, Israel transferred at the beginning of the month of Ramadan (July 27) an advance of NIS 180 million (approximately USD 45 million) of August tax remittances. The money was intended to help the PA pay salaries in time to celebrate the holiday. An agreement was concluded (July 14) to employ an additional 5,000 Palestinian construction workers in Israel; the number of roadblocks was reduced to 10, most of which are normally open; the remains of Palestinian terrorists were returned (May 31). In addition, Israel agreed to develop the gas field off the Gaza shoreline. Israel is promoting infrastructure projects in Area C, including completion of a master plan. In 2011, 119 infrastructure projects were approved, 58 of them with international financing. Fifteen projects relating to the construction and renovation of infrastructures for schools and clinics have received “fast-track” approval. I won’t go into all the details of additional Israeli gestures that were made throughout 2012, all of them with the goal of assisting the Palestinian economy and easing the lives of the residents in the West Bank and Gaza. Unfortunately, despite these steps, we do not see any willingness or positive attitude on the part of the PA. The opposite is the case: we see a rise in the Palestinian activity against Israel in the diplomatic and legal arenas, with attempts to accelerate illegal construction in Area C (including dragging the EU into this problematic activity), to encourage an economic boycott on the Israeli economy in the territories and to generate repeated negative statements against Israel. In addition, we have encountered a relatively new campaign, blaming Israel for the murder of Yassir Arafat, as well as the ongoing institutionalized incitement in the Palestinian media, attacking Israel and the legitimacy of the State’s existence. Abbas’ Strategy Mr. Mahmoud Abbas‘ unfortunate behavior indicates that he apparently is uninterested or unable — due to his standing in the domestic Palestinian scene vis a vis Hamas, and in light of the regional geopolitical situation — to reach an agreement which would bring an end to the conflict, including addressing all the core issues. Instead he is creating a culture of blaming Israel for delaying the process, while attempting to achieve advantages without negotiation via blackmailing and ongoing attempts to internationalize the conflict. The situation as I have described it is supported not only by the facts but also may be corroborated by the Jordanians, who made a great effort to facilitate direct dialogue between Israel and the PA. Unfortunately, because of the attitudes of Mr. Abbas and his partners, these efforts did not lead to any progress. This situation is very clear to the Jordanians. This pattern of refusal is not new. With the Annapolis process, under the previous Israeli government, former Prime Minister Ehucl Olmert offered the Palestinians far-reaching concessions and gestures of goodwill, more than any other Israeli government, without success. In this light, the relevant chapter on the subject in former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s recent book of memoirs is most enlightening. Two additional matters should be taken into account: the historic Bar-Ilan speech of Prime Minister Netanyahu, which called for a two state solution, and the unprecedented step of the current government, which, in response to Palestinian demands, temporarily froze the construction in the settlements, in order to renew peace negotiations. As part of the Palestinian systematic pattern of avoiding bilateral negotiations, these steps were met with rejection and with unilateral steps by the Palestinians, under Mr. Abbas‘ leadership. In a calculated manner, Mr. Abbas is focusing his dialogue with the international community on the subject of settlements. Unfortunately, the international community tends to accept this discourse lock, stock and barrel, without criticism or a nuanced approach. This is a damaging attitude, which does not reflect the reality on the ground. I would like to recall several points on this subject: The entire area of the settlements constitutes approximately one percent of the area of the West Bank. The last settlement which Israel constructed was in 1991. In the framework of the peace accord with Egypt (1979), Israel took the painful step of evacuating all the settlements and military bases in Sinai. In 2005, Israel evacuated all of our settlements from the Gaza Strip, as well as four settlements in the northern West Bank, but instead of peace and security, we received the Hamas government in Gaza which opposes the existence of Israel, and is unwilling to live in peace with us, as well as 14,000 rockets and missiles which were indiscriminately shot at towns and villages in southern Israel. Facts and history, as opposed to the simplistic stereotypes and political bias, contradict the idea that somehow the settlement enterprise is the main obstacle to renewing the negotiations. This premise simply does not stand up to the test of reality or the historic precedent of the peace process between Israel and our neighbors. Both peace accords, with Egypt and Jordan, were signed when settlements existed; the claim that settlements are the obstacle to peace is unfounded. In recent years, we have seen that Mr. Abbas speaks with a moderate and pleasant voice to the international community, but in fact, has been personally acting to undermine attempts to renew the peace process, despite Israeli gestures and confidence building measures. He has continued in damaging behavior towards Israel, including extreme cases of encouraging a culture of hatred, praising terrorists, encouraging sanctions and boycotts, and calling into question the legitimacy of the existence of the state, as can be seen for example in his last speech at the General Assembly of the U.N. In my view, in his deeds and his behavior, Mr. Abbas does not represent the general Palestinian interest (for example, he has repeatedly postponed the democratic process of elections in the PA), nor even the interest of his constituents in the West Bank. The Palestinian Authority is a despotic government riddled with corruption. This pattern of behavior has led to criticism even within his own constituency. Due to Abbas‘ weak standing, and his policy of not renewing the negotiations, which is an obstacle to peace, the time has come to consider a creative solution, to think “outside the box,” in order to strengthen the Palestinian leadership. This is crucial, so that the Israeli gestures to strengthen the economy, stability and strength of the PA will not be turned into a boomerang against Israel. Despite Mr. Abbas‘ delays, general elections in the PA should be held, and a new, legitimate, hopefully realistic Palestinian leadership should be elected. The PA elections were due to be held in 2010 and have since been postponed several times. As of today, no new date has been set for elections. Only such a leadership can bring progress with Israel. We must maximize the holding of new elections in the PA, alongside the tremendous changes in the Arab world, in order to bring a serious change to the relationship between Israel and the Palestinians. I would like to thank you for the ongoing open dialogue between us. Please accept, Baroness Ashton, the assurances of my deep consideration. Sincerely, Avigdor Liberman

The Dhimmicrat National Convention

The dhimmicrats who ordinarily claim to believe in the separation of religion and state have chosen to celebrate islam at their national convention. No such events for any other religion are going to take place. These would be the same democrats who have hysterically accused Republicans of waging a war on women and gays, but are embracing the most misogynistic and homophobic ideology in the world. How do they justify holding these contradictory positions? What "plight" do muslims face in America that they want to draw attention to? How about drawing attention to the plight of non-muslims under islamic rule? Washington Times:
Dems draw in Muslims with 'Jumah at the DNC' "Jumah at the DNC" will take place at the Democrats' Charlotte, N.C., convention site, beginning Aug. 29 with prayers and an Islamic Regal Banquet. Photo Credit:AP Starting at the end of this month the Democratic National Convention will open with a focus on Islam; 20,000 Muslims are expected to attend, according to the Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs, the national Muslim American non-profit coordinating the two days of events they claim are non-political. ”Jumah at the DNC” begins August 29 and will start with a Friday afternoon jummah prayer followed by other unnamed programs and events, leading up to the Islamic Regal Banquet. The following day will be an all day Islamic Cultural and Fun Fest which will include discussions on the topics of Islamaphobia, Anti-Shariah, Middle Eastern Crisis, Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act and more. The purpose, according to BIMA, is to attract national and international attention to the plight of American Muslims and to hold political parties accountable for issues that affect them.

Bacon is Now a "Hate Crime"

Can you believe the absurdity of the NYPD launching an investigation to find out who scattered bacon on the ground of a city park on Staten Island? What a joke. What "hate crime" was committed? No one was attacked, there was no vandalism of property. Under normal circumstances this is not remotely a crime. But these days simply offending the fragile sensibilities of muslims is considered a "crime". This is enforcement of sharia.
NYPD Probing Hate Crime After Bacon Found At Staten Island Ramadan Site CBS News Local August 20, 2012 NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are investigating an unusual bias crime on Staten Island. Muslims who gathered for prayer to celebrate the end of Ramadan in a city park found bacon scattered on the ground, CBS 2’s John Slattery reported Monday. With Ramadan ending this past weekend, Muslims celebrated the end of fasting with prayer. On Staten Island an outdoor service was held Sunday on a New Dorp football field, attracting some 1,500 Muslims. But before most of the faithful arrived for Morning Prayer, it was discovered that someone had scattered a quantity of raw bacon on the field. “This has been determined to be a bias event on the part of our Hate Crimes Task Force,” NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly told reporters, including WCBS 880′s Rich Lamb. “On a website associated with this celebration was some derogatory comments and at the site itself, three packages of raw bacon were found,” Kelly added. Followers of Islam are forbidden to eat pork. Even before the bacon was located, someone left offensive messages on the organization’s website. “…That he or she was going to do something with a fat pig right at the time of morning prayer,” said Hesham El-Meligy of the Islamic Civic Association of Staten Island. “The statement came from someone who identified himself as ’007Midland,’” Kelly said on Monday afternoon. “Obviously, we’re conducting an investigation to determine who put the message on the website.” Police computer experts are trying to locate the identity of that person, whom Muslim organizers of the prayer service said was clearly trying to taunt Muslims through intimidation, like other symbols disturbing to African-Americans or Jews. “Whether burning crosses or swastikas, a small minority are trying to threaten other people,” said Muneer Awad, executive director of the New York chapter of the Council on Islamic Relations. “This isn’t what America’s about. This isn’t about intolerance, our diversity is our strength and we’re encouraging people to embrace that diversity,” Awad told 1010 WINS. Clearly what was done was offensive, someone hoping to incite people about to engage in prayer. Because the offensive meat was found early, organizers said the prayer service was shifted to another area of the park. So, most of those present didn’t know of the problem until the service was over.

The EU Should Be Told To Stay Out Of Israel's Business

I’m furious over the contempt the world has for Israel’s sovereignty. But ultimitely the fault for this lies with spineless Israeli political leaders. The Europeans, Brazil and whoever else need to be told to stay the f%&# out of Israel’s affairs. But instead they hold meetings with them to speed the process of “palestinian” construction projects.
This Is How the UN and the European Union Intentionally Promote Illegal Construction in Judea And Samaria JEWISH PRESS Over the past few years, European countries, European NGO’s and international support organizations have carried out at least 200 illegal building projects in Area C of Judea and Samaria, reports Makor Rishon. This is referring to construction of public buildings (schools and mosques), paving of roads, installing electrical equipment, and appropriating State owned land. Most of these illegal actions have been conducted by non-governmental organizations supported by European governments, however in some of the instances it is being done by direct agents of the countries themselves. All this construction activity is taking place in Area C, which is under the complete rule of the State of Israel, without specified plans and without permits from the Civil Administration of Judea and Samaria. And this is in addition to the multitude of construction and development projects in Areas A and B, where, according to the Oslo Accords, the planning and construction control is under the Palestinian Authority. Political sources point out that recently there has been a considerable increase in European attempts to carry out illegal construction projects, and in the past few months alone there have been 33 law enforcement actions taken against these projects. Among them have been the confiscation of many tents, equipment and portable structures; buildings have been destroyed and trucks with building material have been captured. It is important to note that the facts that were mentioned in the Makor Rishon report relate only to instances where law enforcement action has been taken, so that it is possible that there are construction projects which are completely unknown to the authorities. There are many cases, as well, where the Civil Administration is prevented from enforcing the law due to Supreme Court orders, or because of political pressure applied by the international community. The main areas where the illegal construction takes place are in the southern Mount Hebron area, in the Jordan Valley, and in the area surrounding East Jerusalem. For example, five trucks were confiscated on the Hizma-Mishor Adumim highway, and a large number of Bedouin tents were confiscated in an areas which foreign organizations were clearly trying to turn those tents into permanent settlements. In Fire Zone 904 in Samaria, tents donated by the Red Cross were confiscated. Next to the village of Tubas in the Jordan Valley, the government of Brazil is backing the establishment of a plantation on Israeli government owned land. In many cases, the international organizations repeatedly break the law even after a law enforcement action has been taken. For example the Civil Administration destroyed an illegal structure near Alfei Menashe, and as a reaction the employees of the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), a UN support organization, erected caravans next to a sign declaring their responsibility for the action. In southern Mount Hebron, near Khirbet A-Rahowa, OCHA tried to establish a permanent settlement for Palestinian residents. The Civil Administration destroyed the illegal structures, but the organization came back and started to rebuild. In the end, the Administration confiscated the steel for construction, a truck and a few tents. Political sources informed Makor Rishon that in spite of the fact that non-governmental organizations apparently support these illegal activities, they continue to receive full backing from various governments around the world. For example, Israeli ambassadors in Berlin and Warsaw were “invited” for admonitions in the local Foreign Offices because the Civil Administration destroyed projects that were funded by organizations supported by these governments. Another country that heavily supports illegal land activities is Spain. On another occasion, the American Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, initiated a telephone conversation with Israeli officials to find out details concerning specific instances of removal of illegal Arab settlements that received press coverage. In other, less-known incidents, like dismantling of tents and confiscating equipment, the intervention of National Security Advisor Yaakov Amidror, and even that of Prime Minister Binyamin Netnayahu is required, following requests from foreign governments. Israeli officials who are experts in these matters point out that the intervention of the government echelon is required because the Europeans and Palestinians apply force in joint pressure against Israel. First, the Palestinian Prime Minister, Salam Fayyad, and his ministers encourage the illegal construction on behalf of European organizations, then the funding governments apply political pressure on Israel with the intention of preventing the enforcement of the law against such illegal attempts. The Europeans claim that Israel is deliberately preventing Palestinian construction in Area C because out of a strategic plan to prevent the establishment of a Palestinian state. Nevertheless, in discussions with Israel they don’t say this directly, but instead haggle over technical disagreements. During frequent discussions involving the European diplomats stationed in Israel, Foreign Ministry officials, and the Civil Administration, the Europeans blame the Israeli side for intentionally causing the failure of construction projects for the Palestinians. Israeli officials are livid about the European position; they describe it as provocative and even hostile, and are especially upset about the purposeful transgression of the law. In continuing disagreements with the Europeans, Israeli officials have said that, among other things, “Even according to your theory that Judea and Samaria are occupied territories, you are still obligated to obey the laws of the occupying country. There is no place in the world where a foreign country supports noncompliance with the local law, even if they don’t accept it.” These officials further said that during 2011 alone, more than 200 construction projects in Judea and Samaria received permits. “How can the Europeans claim that we are trying to trip hold them?” The argument between the two sides has been taking place for months, but meanwhile both sides are trying to maintain a low profile. At the same time, in spite of the anger about the European approach, joint work by the sides has started in an attempt to overcome disagreements. During meetings currently taking place between the Foreign Ministry, the Civil Administration, the European political echelon and ambassadors, an infrastructure has been set up whose purpose is to shorten considerably the planning and construction procedures of foreign initiatives in small and medium sized projects.

Europe's War Against the Jewish State

The following stories are why I have such utter contempt for the socialist, jihad collaborators and Jew-hating Europeans. PR firms have no problem representing mass murderers in Syria and the genocidal regime in Tehran. But they refuse to represent Israel. This sick and disgusting moral inversion is beyond the pale. One PR rep said that Israel is "occupying" land that supposedly belongs to the invented "palestinians". The euros never stopped being antisemitic swine. Antisemitism simply lay dormant in the second half of the twentieth century due to the holocaust. Now it is once again out in the open under the guise of palestinianism, the invented people created for the purpose of being used as proxies in the islamic/leftist war to destroy the Jewish state. Notice how crickets are chirping within western leftist ranks when it comes to the horrible, discriminatory treatment of "palestinians" residing in Arab countries. The reason is because they do not actually give a fig about these people they claim their hearts bleed for. The "palestinian" movement is nothing more than a fig leaf for Jew-hatred and the denial of the Jewish people's rights to their homeland. The fact that Europe is being lost to islamization is poetic justice for these morally degenerate bastards. Times of Israel:
PR firms help spin Iran and Syria, but say no to Israel AUGUST 16, 2012, 2:12 PM 0 Ronn Torossian is the Founder & CEO of New York-based 5W Public Relations/5WPR…[More] Ronn's website Worldwide, the public relations industry is a small, tight-knit industry. The business generally makes sense to me as the founder of 5WPR, a top-25 US PR agency, but sometimes I shake my head in amazement. In a heinous criminal act, it’s recently been revealed that Britain’s Standard Chartered bank helped to launder $250 Billion dollars of Iranian money. The New York State Department of Financial Services says the US financial system was “vulnerable to terrorists” after the actions of the bank. NY regulators blasted the 150-year old bank as a “rogue institution” that “helped sustain a global threat to peace and stability.” According to multiple reports in industry trade magazines, leading UK PR Agency Maitland was hired by Standard Chartered following a competitive pitch process where over 10 PR agencies bid for the work. Undoubtedly, it’s a high-profile, well-paying assignment – and it goes hand in hand with previous reports that terrorist organizations have hired PR agencies to lobby for them in the press and on the world stage. There was recently a fascinating expose published in The Daily Beast about how Assad’s Syrian regime worked with a firm to write a glowing profile of Asma Assad, Syria’s First Lady, in February 2011.

Obama Putting Out All The Stops To Hold Back Israel

Attila Somfalvi wants the Obama administration to subdue Israel. Iranian nuclear weapons are a matter of life and death for the Jewish state. General Dempsey should not think for a second that Israel will simply sit by regarding such an existential threat just because the Obama administration orders it to. Whatever military risks there are to an Israeli strike on Iran or the political and diplomatic fallout, they pale in comparison to the deadly consequences of a nuclear armed Iran. I would agree with this editorial on only one point. Bibi and Barak should stop talking about striking Iran. They should just simply act. Israpundit:
US punched Bibi, Barak in the face Analysis: Dempsey’s remark regarding IDF’s inability to destroy Iran’s nuclear capability meant to show Israel who’s boss By Attila Somfalvi, YNET Once every few years Israel needs a slap in the face to remember where it stands in the world. On Tuesday it was US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey who assumed the role of the responsible adult and slapped Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Ehud Barak, the duo orchestrating the national hysteria surrounding the possibility of an attack in Iran. Israel can “delay but not destroy Iran’s nuclear capabilities,” he said while sitting next to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, who visited Israel a few weeks ago to allay the concerns of the leadership in Jerusalem. Dempsey’s comments should be taken seriously, as should the stern message conveyed by Panetta, the White House and the American security establishment: If we can’t reason with you, the Israelis, we will have to get tough. The general’s remark was not a slip-of-the-tongue. It was a calculated statement from a general of Irish descent and character. His words constituted a slap in Israel’s face, a punch in the face, and a kick to the most sensitive part of the body. To be more precise, the US slammed Israel’s head against the wall and said: “Shut up. Stop babbling about Iran. Without us there is not much you can do, and don’t assume for a second that we are dancing to your tune. You shouldn’t do anything stupid, and stop driving the entire world crazy.” This was the message behind Dempsey’s comment. You don’t believe it? Just imagine what would have happened had an American general, after decades of ambiguity, would have held a press conference and announced that Israel does not have nuclear weapons, or that it does. Now think again about the meaning of Dempsey’s statement, which was made after months and even years in which Israel was building up its image as an omnipotent power in the Middle East. Dempsey’s comments can even be considered earth-shattering: The US, Israel’s closest ally and confidante, has decided to bring the Jewish state’s leadership to its knees and hurt our exaggerated self-confidence and undermine our deterrence. No less. Dempsey was painfully clear. He basically said that Israel should not disregard the opinions of its top security officials, stop the constant chatter on Iran and refrain from any acts that may have an adverse effect on the global economy. The general also meant to tell Israel that it mustn’t believe that Netanyahu has any control over the US because he has friends in the Republican Party. Dempsey laid down the facts: Israel is not America, it does not possess the same capabilities, and if Netanyahu and Barak continue wreaking havoc – Israel won’t have America either. It will take a while before we will be able to gauge the depth of the current crisis between Israel and the US (and between Netanyahu and Obama). Washington made a strategic decision to show Israel who is the mentor and who is the protégé. The US hit Israel’s most sensitive nerve: The pride in its military power. But it appears that the US had no other choice. After weeks of belligerent headlines, President Obama had enough of Netanyahu’s inclination to play with fire. We should start getting used to it.

Seditious Israeli Leftists

Jewicidal professors and lawyers in Israel are urging Israeli pilots to disobey if ordered to attack Iran. Israel Hayom:
Rightists seek sedition charges over petition opposing Iran strike More than 400 people sign petition calling on Israeli pilots to refuse orders if told to bomb Iran • Rightists: Withhold funding from universities that employ professors who signed the petition • "Refusing orders imperils every citizen," says activist. Mati Tuchfeld 400 Israelis sign petition calling on pilots to refuse orders to bomb Iran. |Photo credit: AFP (Illustrative) 400 Israelis sign petition calling on pilots to refuse orders to bomb Iran. |Photo credit: AFP (Illustrative) Right-wing activists are demanding legal proceedings against a group of university professors and members of the legal community who recently issued a much-publicized petition opposing an Israeli attack on Iran. In recent days, more than 400 people have signed the petition calling on Israel Air Force pilots to refuse orders to fly to Iran and bomb targets there, should the order be given. According to the petition, the potential decision to attack Iran's nuclear facilities would be "misguided and adventurous" and would not be able to achieve its express goal — to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. The Israeli right, chiefly the National Union party, was outraged by the petition, calling on the government to withhold funding from universities that employ professors who signed the petition. "When Hesder yeshiva students [in a program that combines army service with yeshiva study] waved signs calling on soldiers to refuse orders to evacuate Jews from their homes [in settlements] the leftists cried out that this was a blow to democracy, and the defense minister cut off funding to the Har Bracha yeshiva," said one National Union activist. "If the prime minister and the defense minister have an iota of decency and integrity they have to act just as decisively against Tel Aviv University, whose professors are now calling on soldiers to refuse orders to bomb Iran." The right-wing Zionist group Im Tirtzu also responded to the petition, issuing a letter to Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein calling for a criminal sedition investigation against the petition's authors. Im Tirtzu Chairman Ronen Shoval exclaimed that "it is unthinkable that academics, as smart as they may be, will dictate Israel's security policy." "Calling for public dialogue and addressing the heads of the defense establishment are one thing," Shoval said, referring to a recent letter by renowned Israeli artists warning the government not to take action in Iran without public approval. "But calling for refusal of orders is a severe violation of Israeli democracy and the rule of law. Urging Israeli pilots to refuse orders imperils every citizen of this country. It is populist and, simply put, shameless. This petition amounts to no less than sedition and incitement."

Obama Camp Targeting Sheldon Adelson

The Obama campaign engages in veiled antisemitism with its attack on Jewish billionaire and Republican campaign donor Sheldon Adelson to rally its base. The average Jewish liberal, lacking in pride or self-respect won't have a problem with this. Bill Pascrell's campaign engaged in overt antisemitism against Steve Rothman in the democrat primary in NJ's 9th district. This hasn't prevented leftist Jews from supporting him. Democrats can have their cake and eat it too. They can engage in Jew-baiting to get out the votes of the democrats increasingly antisemitic base, while not losing the Jewish vote. Breitbart:
Obama Campaign: Ryan 'Kisses The Ring' of Jewish Megadonor Adelson by Ben Shapiro 14 Aug 2012 The Obama campaign is in an utter tizzy about the selection of Paul Ryan as Mitt Romney’s running mate. Yesterday, they sent out an email asking “why the hell” Romney would pick Ryan, and speculating that it was because Ryan was a corporate patsy who would serve the interests of back room fat cats. Today, they’re making that argument complete with a supremely offensive attack on Ryan’s visit to Las Vegas – and, in particular, his upcoming visit with Republican donor Sheldon Adelson:

California Dhimmis Defend Sharia Law

How do liberals explain holding two contradictory belief systems, claiming to support gay rights and women's rights while defending sharia law? Godfather Politics:
California Politicians and Law Enforcement Support Sharia Law posted on August 14, 2012 by da Tagliare Earlier this year, a town hall meeting was held to determine the effects of Sharia law and to see whether or not it is something to be feared or embraced. In typical California fashion, the meeting was held on at a neutral location – the Islamic Society of Orange County. To no one’s surprise, everyone at the meeting was told that Sharia law poses no threat to U.S. law. They were also told that there is absolutely no conflict between Sharia law and the U.S Constitution and the Bill of Rights. As I’ve often said, California is the land of nuts, fruits and flakes and the results of the town hall meeting only helps to reinforce that notion. U.S. Rep Maxine Waters (D-CA) urged the people and officials to support and embrace Sharia law. Note, this is the same Maxine Waters known for her outrageous statements and extreme liberalism. Waters’ district includes the Westchester are of Los Angeles along with Inglewood, Gardena, Florence-Graham and Hawthorne. Another California politician that came out in support of Sharia Law was U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) whose district lies in central Orange County. Not only is Sanchez known as a flaming liberal who like other Dems votes for same-sex marriage and abortion, also is a ranking member of the Homeland Security Committee and Armed Services Committee. Her support of Sharia law should be alarming considering the important committees she serves on.

Wealthy Jewicidals Work to Destroy Zionism

There are no words to describe the contempt I feel for these anti-Israel, non-Jews who use their vast wealth to do grave damage to their own people. It’s ironic that antisemites the world over rant about Jewish money and power while these same wealthy, powerful Jews are actually doing the bidding of the world's antisemites. They have the same aim which is to ethnically cleanse Jews from Israel. Israpundit:
Who signed the letter against the Levy Report Israel Policy Forum: The Network of Intrigue By Moshe Dann, FPM A recent letter to PM Netanyahu opposing the Levy Report organized by the Israel Policy Forum (IPF) and signed by 40 critics of Jewish communities built in Judea and Samaria (“settlements”) received wide media attention. With perhaps a few exceptions, those who signed the letter did not read the report, since it was only in Hebrew at that time. This was a typical hit-job by a marginal, tiny elite organization that promotes the “two-state solution,” a second or third Arab Palestinian state and evacuating Jews from the area. Touted as “American Jewish leaders,” the individuals who signed, except for those associated with the Reform Movement, Eric Yoffee and David Saperstein, represent no organizations or constituencies. They are mega-bucks “philanthropists,” very wealthy businessmen like Charles Bronfman, Lester Crown, Marvin Lender, owner of Lender’s Bagels, and Richard Pearlstone, financier and real estate mogul, who bought their way into Jewish communal organizations, Susi Gelman (heiress to the Levi Strauss fortune), Edith Everett who runs a family foundation, some corporate lawyers, a few academics, a former Clinton advisor, and two former US ambassadors to Israel. IPF was founded in 1993 with PM Rabin’s blessing to support the Oslo Accords and counter AIPAC – and to carry out propaganda campaigns as part of a network of American organizations with a similar purpose, like Americans for Peace Now, and New Israel Fund, and left-wing Israeli NGOs like ACRI, B’Tselem, etc, think tanks like INSS and the Peres Center for Peace. IPS’ first president was Jack Bendheim, a wealthy businessman (Phibro and PAHC holdings) and philanthropist living in Riverdale, NY with a home and social and business contacts in Israel. Jonathan A.

The Media Defends Terrorists

The fact that it is controversial to refer to terrorists who are waging a genocidal war against the Jewish people, who slit the throats of children and babies and who blow up buses, cafes etc. as savages, shows how morally depraved is the state of the western media. The pro-jihad, Jew-hating media and the left are more offended by terrorists being called savages then they are about the butchering of Israelis by terrorists. There is nothing so depraved and monstrous its enemies can perpetrate against the Israelis that will move these degenerate leftists and media figures to ever reconsider their false narrative of "palestinian" victimization and Israeli aggression. Atlas:
VIDEO: Pamela Geller on ABC News covering Pro-Israel Bus ads Mark Matthews of ABC News (KGO TV), San Francisco, did a news report on our pro-Israel bus ads that just hit the streets. In it, Matthews proselytizes for Islam, redefines jihad, and makes a bit of a fool of himself. He falls over himself to get the Islamic perspective, but runs no counter to their claims. He spent a good deal of time during our interview arguing about the word "savage." I explained that any war on innocent civilians was savagery. Matthews countered that both the US and Israel have killed innocent civilians and I shot back that the US and Israel never target innocent civilians, ever. The deaths of innocent civilians are the tragic consequence of war sometimes. The war on Israel, OTOH, is a war on innocent civilians. Needless to say, that never made it onto the broadcast interview.

More Americans Killed in Afghanistan Because of PC Policies

What will it take to finally understand that there are no allies to be found in the muslim world? To attempt to ingratiate ourselves to muslims is an excercise in futility and is often deadly as in this case. Our soldiers continue to be slaughtered because of our government's willful blindness regarding the true nature of our enemy or to even name who our enemy is. The American people should be outraged about the rules of engagement our soldiers are forced to operate under. Atlas:
Afghan policeman murders Marine Captain and two other American soldiers at Ramadan Meal, "Captain Menoukian insisted that his Marines observe Ramadan customs with the Muslims "Captain Menoukian insisted that his Marines observe Ramadan customs with the Muslims so they didn't eat during the daytime either ....." "The local Afghani police uniform wanted to see him (Capt. Matt Manoukian) and since he had been training Afghani police it was not an unusual request.... and they shot him" Judge Socrates Manoukian, Capt. Matt Manoukian's father. They killed him at midnight during the Ramadan meal (the meal that Captain Menoukian insisted that his Marines observe). Despite the respect, subservience and dhimmitude displayed by the US military, they were murdered anyway. That is jihad.

Adelson Sueing NJDC

Sheldon Adelson is fighting back against the Judenrats of the National Jewish Democratic Counsel for their vicious and scurillous accusation that Adelson allows prostitution at his casino in Macao. You can't get much lower than that. And considering that the NJDC is far more concerned in promoting the interests of the Democrat party than Jewish interests, they have no problem with contributing to the spread of antisemitism if it means damaging a major Romney donor. As it is, the democrats are using Adelson to rally and incite the anti-Israel, anti-Jewish left. Israel Hayom:

Christie's Ties to islamic Jihadists

I'm so tired of Chris Christie's big, fat mouth. Now he is attacking those who question his relationship with muslim radicals. He talks tough to everyone but America's jihadist enemies. Shame on those who call themselves conservatives who support him and are pushing him for VP or a future presidential candidate. There is no difference between Obama's friendship with Rashid Khalidi and Christie's friendship with the hamas tied imam of the islamic Center of Passaic County. But while conservatives have attacked Obama for his radical ties, they have given Christie a free pass for his own ties to jihadists. Family Security Matters:
Video: Christie Says “Bigots” Attacking Him on Radical Islam by RYAN MAUROAugust 7, 2012 New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, often described as a "rock star" in the Republican Party, has finally addressed the criticism of his courtship of Islamists. On July 24, Christie held an Iftar dinner at the Governor's Mansion, attended by Imam Mohammad Qatanani, a Hamas-linked cleric whose deportation is sought by the Department of Homeland Security. Christie reiterated his support for Qatanani and made the case to his Muslim audience that he is their ally by ridiculing the "bigots" attacking him. Christie opens by talking about the attacks on "our relationship" (between him and, as he would characterize it, the Muslim community of N.J.) that show a "gaze of intolerance that's going around our country that is disturbing." You can watch the entire speech on YouTube. He mocked his critics, saying "You'll all be fascinated to learn that in many publications around the country, I'm called an Islamist." No one ever said he is an Islamist himself and only a handful of writers have covered the controversy, including myself,, the Investigative Project on Terrorism, Dr. Daniel Pipes, Robert Spencer and my fellow N.J. resident, Andrew McCarthy. Christie blatantly accused us of having anti-Muslim motivations. "These are the kind of red herrings that people put up who are bigots, who want to judge people based upon their religious beliefs, want to judge people with a broad brush," he said. He stood by his support for Imam Qatanani, pointing out that he was in attendance and "I'm glad to have you here." He called him a "friend" that "has attempted to be a force for good in his community." To prove to his audience that he is their ally against "Islamophobia," though he didn't use that exact word, he cited the controversies surrounding three of his actions: His support for Qatanani, his nomination of Sohail Mohammed as a Superior Court Judge and how he stood against the NYPD's intelligence-gathering operations in his state. Let's address these cases one-by-one.

Jewish American Gymnast Proud of Her Heritage

Aly Reisman's awesome gold medal winning performance on the floor exercise to Hava Nagila and followed up by her tribute to the Munich 11 was an FU to the Jew-hating, islamo-pandering IOC. NY Post:

Raisman finished first in the women’s floor exercise, but she deserves to have another medal draped around her neck for having the chutzpah to face the world and do what needed to be done and say what needed to be said. At the same Olympic Games where bigoted organizers stubbornly refuse to honor the slain athletes with a moment of silence, 18-year-old Raisman loudly shocked observers first by winning, then by paying her own tribute to 11 sportsmen who died long before she was born. Reuters GYM DANDY: Jewish-American gymnast Aly Raisman dazzles the London Games yesterday with her Olympic gold-medal floor routine set to the crowd-pleasing “Hava Nagila.” see more videos And if that weren’t enough, she won her event with the Hebrew folk song “Hava Nagila” playing in the background. “Having that floor music wasn’t intentional,” an emotional but poised Raisman told reporters after her performance. “But the fact it was on the 40th anniversary is special, and winning the gold today means a lot to me.” Then Raisman stuck the landing. “If there had been a moment’s silence,” the 18-year-old woman told the world, “I would have supported it and respected it.” It was 40 years ago at the 1972 Munich Games that members of the Israeli Olympic delegation were taken hostage and eventually killed by Palestinian radicals. Executed in the massacre were 11 Israeli athletes and officials and a West German police officer. The martyrs were remembered this week during a London ceremony filled with sadness and reflection. But not a peep about them has been said publicly in the one place where it counts — at the Summer Games on Olympic soil. The International Olympic Committee and its president, Jacques Rogge, have refused to properly honor the dead, arguing that the opening ceremony wasn’t an appropriate forum for a moment of silence. But if the opening ceremony is good enough for James Bond and Mr. Bean, it’s hard to understand why it’s not good enough for 60 seconds of solitude. “Shame on you International Olympic Committee because you have forsaken the 11 members of your Olympic family,” said Ankie Spitzer, whose husband, Andre, an Israeli fencing coach, was gunned down in the massacre. “You are discriminating against them only because they are Israelis and Jews,” she went on. Rogge was an athlete himself at the very Games where the massacre took place, representing Belgium on the sailing team. “Even after 40 years, it is painful to relive the most painful moments of the Olympic movement,” Rogge said at an unaffiliated service before Spitzer spoke.

IOC Grants Special Rights For muslims

As every other dhimmi international organization does, the IOC grants special privileges to muslims. The list of offenses is as follows: A minute of silence at the opening ceremonies was denied for the murdered Israeli athletes, changing of rules regarding uniforms to accommodate muslim women, putting up an apartheid screen in response to the Lebanese team demanding not to practice next to the Israeli team, even as a Greek athlete was barred for what was perceived as racist comments on Twitter. In addition to all that, now you don't even have to actually qualify for the olympics in order to compete if you're a muslim. Atlas Shrugs:

Romney's VP Pick

I have a bad feeling that Romney is going to choose islam supporter Chris Christie. This would be a win-win for the muslim brotherhood. Whoever gets in they know they have a friend in the White House. Then there will never be an investigation into muslim brotherhood operatives in the federal government. Republicans won't even investigate the Obama White House on this matter, let alone if their own party is in the White House. I'm tired of politicians in both parties who fail to understand that islam is at war with us. Col. Allen West understands this. He should be the VP pick but he won't. Romney's advisors won't allow it. The GOP establishment abhors a principled conservative and certainly one that speaks of the islamic jihad threat.

Michael Coren and Robert Spencer on islam

Sun News provides informative content on the grave issue of the islamic threat. Contrast that with the fake conservatives over at FOX entertainment channel giving us endless hours and days of stories about Chick-fil-a and gays. That is a safe enough subject to deal with. Muslim brotherhood operatives in our government and the stealth jihad, they don’t dare touch.

The Loathsome Thomas Friedman

The most insidious thing about Friedman isn’t even the fact that he is so anti-Israel. It is his using his Judaism to push antisemitic canards about a sinister Jewish lobby pulling the strings of politicians, forcing them to support Israel. He provides cover for Jew-haters to pretend their attacks on Israel are not motivated by antisemitism. He does this with malicious intent. It would never occur to Friedman that Mitt Romney is pro-Israel out of moral conviction, consistent with his conservative Mormon values and his pro-freedom, pro-American values. That is why Sheldon Adelson is funding his campaign rather than the other way around. Friedman, being such a moral degenerate can’t conceive of the idea that supporting Israel is the morally correct position. Supporting Israel over its terrorist enemies does not go against the interests of the United States. It goes against the interest of America to support the establishment of another islamic jihadist terror state. It’s funny how the presence of an islamic lobby in Washington never troubles Friedman and his ilk, even as the muslim brotherhood lobby and its operatives serving in our government are pushing us into a war with Syria. They don’t even acknowlege that such a lobby exists. While Friedman and the liberal media never tire of promoting the antisemitic charge of a powerful and dangerous Jewish/Israel lobby forcing its agenda on our government, these same people cry “racism” and “islamophobia” to beat down anyone who dares to bring up the subject of muslim brotherhood operatives in the State Department, Defense Department, Justice Department, White House and Congress. Israpundit:
Obama’s wedge issue By Caroline B. Glick, JWR Like Obama’s attacks on free enterprise and Catholics, his attacks on Israel seem to indicate that he doesn’t care about getting reelected. But this is not the case. Less than 100 days before the US Presidential elections, the Obama administration is openly denying Israel’s sovereignty over Jerusalem. Can this be a vote getter? Last week the Emergency Committee for Israel released an ad titled, “O, Jerusalem.” The commercial showed administration officials squirming when asked to name the capital of Israel, and highlighted the recent refusals of White House and State Department spokespersons to acknowledge that Jerusalem is Israel’s capital city. The underlying message of the ad was that the administration’s policy is out of step with the views of the majority of Americans. Obama’s position is certainly a political outlier. The 1995 Jerusalem Embassy Act, passed nearly unanimously by both houses of Congress, explicitly stated that it is the policy of the United States that Jerusalem should be recognized as the capital of Israel. The law granted the President a right to postpone the transfer of the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on national security grounds. But the law’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital was unconditional. During his visit to Israel earlier this week, presumptive Republican presidential nominee Governor Mitt Romney highlighted the fact that he holds the consensus view of the American public on Jerusalem. In his speech in Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon Romney said simply, “It is a deeply moving experience to be in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.” The Palestinians were predictably enraged.

Another Clueless Jewish Leftist

Lefties like Dov Waxman see through such a distorted lens. I cannot understand their way of thinking at all. The Jewish state has never been the obstacle to peace. It is solely the Arab-muslim refusal to accept the existence of the Jewish state. The “Palestinians” do not seek statehood, but the obliteration of Israel. That is why all efforts at peacemaking by American administrations have failed. It is that black and white. It makes no difference how much pressure Obama or any other president puts on Israel because there is no willingness to make concessions on the other side. Why is this so difficult for people like Dov Waxman and his ilk to grasp? Israpundit:
Romney or Obama: Why the Israeli left (and the right) should care
For the left, the amount of pressure Obama applied to Israel wasn’t enough as he didn’t get a peace deal. The PA’s recalcitrance is almost irrelevant to them. But Obama was better than Romney’s expected carte blanche for Israel. I agree with his conclusions. Ted Belman
By Dov Waxman, +972 The general sentiment among many of my left-wing Israeli friends about Romney’s visit to Israel is a mix of cynicism and apathy – cynicism because they see the visit as a transparent attempt to pander to American Jewish voters and donors, and apathy because they feel that whoever wins the U.S. presidential election in November, American policy to Israel will remain basically unchanged. While they’re right to be cynical, they are wrong to be apathetic. A Romney administration will be different for Israel than Obama’s administration has been. From a liberal or left-wing Israeli or Jewish perspective, it will almost certainly be worse. Let’s face it, Obama has been a disappointment to those of us who hoped that he would be the President to finally broker Israeli-Palestinian peace after so many others had failed. After all, he seemed to possess a much more nuanced understanding of the conflict than his immediate predecessor George W. Bush, he expressed an obvious empathy for both sides, and he clearly recognized that resolving the conflict was an American national interest, not just an Israeli and Palestinian one. His popularity, especially among American Jews, also augured well. In short, not only did Obama “get it,” he could also “do it,” meaning that he was in a strong enough position to persuade and cajole both sides, Israel in particular, to make the necessary concessions for a peace agreement. Needless to say, things have not turned out the way we hoped. Today, the Israelis and Palestinians are barely even talking to each other, and the prospects for peace seem more distant than ever. The viability of the two-state solution itself is now seriously in doubt, as the population of Israeli settlers in the West Bank and East Jerusalem continues to inexorably rise (there are now around 350,000 settlers in the West Bank and 300,000 in East Jerusalem). The Obama Administration’s policy toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has undoubtedly been a dismal failure (although there are many reasons for this, not least Israeli and Palestinian recalcitrance). But while Israeli leftists, not to mention Palestinians, have every reason to be disappointed with the lack of progress that has been made over the past four years and to be disillusioned with Obama personally, they should not let these feelings prevent them from acknowledging that Obama is still much better, or at least a lot less bad, than Romney when it comes to U.S. policy on Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The crucial difference between Obama and Romney when it comes to Israel can be summed up in one word: restraint. While neither man may be willing to apply real pressure on Israel (although Obama initially tried to and may try again in a second term), Romney is much less likely to restrain Israel, more specifically a right-wing Israeli government. It is, of course, impossible to really know how much the Obama administration has restrained Netanyahu and his government. Would Israel have built more settlements and allowed more outposts? Would it have fired more missiles into Gaza in response to Palestinian rocket attacks? Would it have already bombed Iran by now? We can only speculate about these possibilities. What is clear, however, is that the Netanyahu government knew that it had to deal with a U.S. Administration that opposed Israeli settlement construction and supported the Palestinian right to self-determination in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, and East Jerusalem. To be sure, Prime Minister Netanyahu had a Republican-controlled Congress on his side, but he still could not risk the wrath of the White House. He therefore enjoyed less freedom of action. Will Netanyahu, Lieberman and company feel the same way if Mitt Romney is sitting in the Oval Office? If Romney wins in November, it will be in no small part due to the largesse of casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson, a longtime supporter of Netanyahu and a man who finds AIPAC too moderate. Many other extremely wealthy right-wing American Jews are also backing Romney. In addition to donations from right-wing Jews, the votes of staunchly pro-Israel evangelical Christians will also be necessary for Romney to win in November. With this kind of support behind him, it is highly unlikely that as president, Romney will risk any kind of confrontation or dispute with Israel. It would simply be political suicide for him. This doesn’t necessarily mean that if Romney becomes the next U.S. president, Israel will attack Iran or annex parts of the West Bank, but it does mean that Israel will face less constraint than it does at present. While this is certainly good news for those on the right who want Israel to be completely free to do as it pleases — regardless of Palestinian rights, human rights, or pretty much anything else — it’s bad news for those of us who have yet to give up hope for an end to the occupation, for peace, and for a viable Palestinian state to exist alongside Israel. A Romney Administration could be the last nail in the coffin of the two-state solution.

The Free World Should Be Pro-Israel

Could Jonathan Cook be any more twisted and morally depraved in his worldview? The obstacle to peace is the free, democratic state of Israel and not the islamic terror states and their terrorist “palestinian” proxies who openly state the desire to obliterate the Jewish state and perpetrate a Jewish genocide? Cook apparently has no problem with America and the west providing economic and military aid to islamic terror states who commit massive human rights atrocities, not to mention to the terrorist PA and hamas. Israel does respect human rights and democratic values, unlike the EU’s islamic trading partners. Israpundit:
Europe And US Richly Reward Israel By Jonathan Cook, Palestine Chronicle Israel has barely put a foot right with the international community since its attack on Gaza more than three years ago provoked global revulsion. The right-wing government of Benjamin Netanyahu has serially defied and insulted foreign leaders, including US President Barack Obama; given the settlers virtual free rein; blocked peace talks with the Palestinians; intimidated and marginalized human rights groups, UN agencies and even the Israeli courts; and fuelled a popular wave of Jewish ethnic and religious chauvinism against the country’s Palestinian minority, foreign workers and asylum seekers. No wonder, then, that in poll after poll Israel ranks as one of the countries with the most negative influence on international affairs. And yet, the lower Israel sinks in public estimation, the more generous western leaders are in handing out aid and special favors to their wayward ally. The past few days have been particularly shameless. It was revealed last week that the European Union had approved a massive upgrade in Israel’s special trading status, strengthening economic ties in dozens of different fields. The decision was a reversal of a freeze imposed in the wake of the Gaza attack of winter 2008. Amnesty International pointed out that the EU was violating its own commitments in the European Neighborhood Policy, which requires that, as a preferred trading partner, Israel respect international human rights, democratic values and its humanitarian obligations. Equally troubling, the EU is apparently preparing to upend what had looked like an emerging consensus in favor of banning settlement products – the only meaningful punishment the EU has threatened to inflict on Israel. With some irony, Europe’s turnabout was revealed the same day that Israel announced it was planning to destroy eight villages in the West Bank, expelling their 1,500 Palestinian inhabitants, to make way for a military firing zone. Four more villages are also under threat. The villagers’ expulsion was further confirmation that Israel is conducting a “forced transfer” of Palestinians, as recent EU reports have warned, from the nearly two-thirds of the West Bank under its control. Europe’s only real leverage over Israel is economic: business between the two already accounts for about 60 per cent of Israeli trade, worth nearly 30 billion euros. But rather than penalizing Israel for repeatedly stomping over the flimsiest prospects for a two-state solution, the EU is handsomely rewarding it. It is not alone. The United States is also showering economic benefits and military goodies on Israel, in addition to the billions of dollars in aid it hands over every year. In the past few days alone, President Obama signed a new law greatly expanding military cooperation with Israel and awarded $70 million – on top of an existing $210 million donation – for it to develop the Iron Dome missile defense system; the Pentagon arm-twisted Lockheed Martin into collaborating with Israeli firms in revamping the new F-35 fighter jet; and Congress approved a four-year extension of US loan guarantees to make it cheaper for Israel to borrow money on the international markets. Meanwhile, Obama’s rival for the presidency, Mitt Romney, has criticized Obama for being too miserly towards Israel. As he stood shoulder to shoulder with Netanyahu in Jerusalem on Sunday, Romney issued a press release suggesting that his administration would spend even more US taxpayers’ dollars on Israel’s missile defense system. All this munificence is coming from the two dominant parties to the Quartet – the international group comprising the US, the EU, the United Nations and Russia. The Quartet’s role is to champion the very two-state solution Israel is striving so strenuously to destroy. In a further irony, the World Bank issued last week its latest report on the state of the Palestinian economy, concluding that its situation was so dire the Palestinian government-in-waiting, the Palestinian Authority, could not be considered ready for independent statehood. The report noted that the Palestinians were heavily reliant on foreign donors and that local private businesses, agriculture and manufacturing were all in decline. With feigned obtuseness, the World Bank recommended that the PA increase exports to foreign markets, glossing over the biggest impediment to such trade: the severe restrictions imposed by Israel on the movement of people and goods into and out of Palestinian territory. As the Quartet has grown ever more silent in the face of Israeli transgressions, US politicians have stepped in with cynical maneuvers to shore up Israel’s intransigence and destroy any hopes of a peaceful solution. Last week, for example, US lawmakers were reported to have put their names to a congressional resolution recognizing the recent report of Israel’s controversial Levy Committee. The report concluded that Israel was not occupying the West Bank and that consequently the settlements there are legal. The topsy-turvy character of international diplomacy was acknowledged this month by a recently retired British ambassador to the Middle East. Tom Philips, who served in Israel and Saudi Arabia, writes in the latest edition of Prospect magazine that Europe and the US need to use “big carrots and big sticks” if there is to be any hope of reviving the peace process. But Mr. Philips believes the US is “genetically indisposed” to forcing change on Israel. He proposes instead choking off donor money to the PA so as “to put the full weight of the occupation on Israel, a burden I do not think they would be able to endure”. In another of the rich ironies of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it now seems even some diplomats are concluding that the Palestinians will be best served by destroying the fledgling government that was supposed to be the harbinger of their independence. The real obstacles to peace – Israel, its occupation and western complicity – might then be laid bare for all to see. - Jonathan Cook won the Martha Gellhorn Special Prize for Journalism.

Romney Spoke The Truth

I am really tired of our media and political elites walking on eggshells and pretending that American, Israeli and western civilization and Judeo-Christian values are not superior, especially compared to islamic societies. Mitt Romney's truthful comment about culture mattering has been excoriated by the usual suspects as "racist". The fact is that "palestinian" and Arab-islamic culture embraces an ideology of hatred, violence and death. Instead of a normal education, they teach depraved ideas to their children to hate and murder Jews and infidels as well as devalue their own lives. They are taught that their highest aspiration should be to strap on a bomb and detonate themselves in a crowd of Jews. Should it come as a surprise that a culture which instills the idea in its children that their lives are meaningless other than to be used in the cause of killing and dying for allah, are failed societies? On the other hand Jewish values embrace and sanctify life, and value education and achievement and making their lives worthwhile here in this world. Townhall:
Media is Mad Because Mitt Told the Truth? Wayne Allyn Root Jul 31, 2012 Sign-Up Don’t Americans constantly complain because politicians lie? Barack Obama lies so much, his nose should be longer than Pinnochio. He says “the private sector is doing fine.” He says to business owners, “You didn’t build that.” He tells the middle class that “none of the tax increases are aimed at you.” And he tells rich people who pay almost all of the taxes, “You’re not paying your fair share.” It’s all lies and distortions. Yet Mitt Romney tells the truth and he gets panned by the national media? All he said a few days ago is that Israel is a remarkable country…the Israeli people are remarkable people…and then compared the GDP of the average Israeli (about $32,000) to the average Palestinian (about $2000). Now this may be politically incorrect, but it’s certainly the truth. Forget the Palestinians. Israel is remarkable compared to any country, and the Jewish people are remarkable compared to any other tribe. Is Mitt wrong? Let’s look at the facts. First, a disclosure. I am a member of the Jewish tribe. My grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia and Germany. I’m bursting with pride at the remarkable success of my tribe. And with America in decline…and the U.S. economy in shambles…the Jewish people are a role model we should be studying and emulating. Jews are the most successful group to ever step foot on U.S. soil. They make up outsized proportions of every important and respected group in this country- attorneys, doctors, accountants, architects, bankers, stockbrokers, CEO’s, small business owners, the media, and of course the movers and shakers in the glamorous entertainment world. But, don’t take my word for it. Ask one of the most liberal and intellectual colleges in America- Columbia University, a bastion of socialism and Marxism. I attended Columbia with many of the most famous symbols of liberalism in America today- including my classmate President Obama. Yet it was at Columbia that I took the course, “Ethnicity in America.” Here I learned the most successful group in U.S. history is…drumroll please…the Jewish people. But the biggest miracle of all is the success of the state of Israel. Mitt Romney is simply the first politician to ever state the truth out loud. Israel is one of the smallest nations on earth. Yet it has the highest venture capital investment (per capita) in the world. 30-times higher than the entire Europe. In pure dollars, Israel places third in the world for venture capital- behind only the USA and China. Israel has more high-tech startups (per capita) than any nation in the world. Israel has more bio-tech startups (per capita) than any nation in the world.
