Treason

 Hillary’s response to the father of Navy Seal Tyrone Woods was to assure him that the mohammed filmmaker would be prosecuted. The reaction of this administration to the savage jihad murder of Americans is to persecute an obscure filmmaker and crack down on the freedoms of Americans.

These people, from the oval office on down the line, are depraved and treasonous.
We need to elect leaders who’s love and loyalty are to America, who are committed to our constitution, our freedoms and values, not globalists who’s priority is to succumb to international consensus and to avoid offending the muslim street.

Retired Lt. Col.: My Sources Say Obama Was in the Room Watching Benghazi Attack Happen

Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said Saturday he has sources saying President Barack Obama was in the room at the White House watching the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya unfold.
Two unarmed U.S. drones were dispatched to the consulate and recorded the final hours of the attack, which killed U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
“This was in the middle of the business day in Washington, so everybody at the White House, CIA, Pentagon, everybody was watching this go down,” Shaffer said on Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine.” “According to my sources, yes, [Obama] was one of those in the White House Situation Room in real-time watching this.”

Shaffer served as a senior operations officer for the Defense Intelligence Agency in Afghanistan in 2003 and wrote a book critical of the policies there. The U.S. government purchased the entire print run for $47,000 in an attempt at censorship just before its 2010 publication, claiming it contained classified material.
Shaffer said the question now is what precisely Obama did or didn’t do in the moments he saw the attack unfolding. The CIA reportedly made three urgent requests for military backup that were each denied.
“He, only he, could issue a directive to Secretary of Defense Panetta to do something. That’s the only place it could be done,” Shaffer said.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said last week the military did not intervene because they did not have enough information about what was happening on the ground.
Col. David Hunt, a Fox News military analyst, said the military could have had jets in the air within 20 minutes and forces on the ground within two hours.
“The issue is always political with the White House, but the secretary of defense gives the order, has to be approved by the White House, they wouldn’t pull the trigger, and it’s disgraceful,” Hunt said. “We’ve got guys dead.”
 

The Truth About islam

How can we begin to educate the American public about islam when the political establishment, the media and cultural elites shut-out any dialogue on this issue? Anyone attempting to warn about the islamic threat, whether Pam Geller, Robert Spencer et al, are immediately shouted down, called “racists” and accused of engaging in hate speech. The true nature of islam is not being allowed to be told. Even on Fox they are at great pains to choose their words carefully with phrases such as “radical islamists”. The term islamist is a western construct. Andrew Bostom’s book ought to be sent out to top officials in Washington. So long as we deny the true nature of islam and promote the fantasy of moderate muslims who will ally with us, Americans will continue to be endangered and killed at home and abroad.
 

Tackling the Totalitarianism of Islam

By Eileen F. Toplansky, AMERICAN THINKER
As the Arab Spring model implodes in the Middle East, it is even more urgent that the West understand that behind this ongoing violence is the inexorable Muslim adherence to sharia law. Sharia is the unremitting lodestar for their actions.
In his latest magisterial work, entitled Sharia versus Freedom: The Legacy of Islamic Totalitarianism, Dr. Andrew Bostom adds another enlightening tome to supplement The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims (2005) and The Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism (2008).
Honest scholarship in our politically correct world is a hard commodity to find. Thus, a debt is owed to Bostom for his continuing contributions as he give numerous examples to prove that it is the “centrality of Islamic jihadism” (26) that motivates, inspires, instigates, arouses, and stirs its adherents toward the unrelenting goal of a global caliphate. During the recent Ramadan, for example, there were 260 jihad attacks in 23 countries, with 1,209 dead and 1,910 critically injured. The so-called religion of peace is extraordinarily bloody, yet leaders of the free world prevaricate about its violence.
The culture of death, destruction, and deceit that is Islam is painstakingly exposed by Bostom. The deep and abiding anti-Jewish animus in Islam is shown to be integral to Islam. Neither a byproduct of Western anti-Semitism nor a result of alleged Western imperialism, to say nothing of the Arab-Israeli conflict, Muslim-inspired anti-Jewish sentiment actually dates back to before 869 A.D.
Bostom affirms that this legacy of “Muslim anti-Jewish hatred and violence” is not some aberrant vision of radical Islam, but rather is “rooted in mainstream, orthodox Islamic teachings” (83). Bostom explodes the oft-repeated idea that “Islam’s society’s hostility is non-theological” and “not related to any specific Islamic doctrine” (74). He proves that, a thousand years before any “serious colonial penetration of the region” (38) could influence views about Jews, there is evidence that Jews were hated by the Muslims because they stubbornly denied Muhammad’s message.
In fact, the Jews of the period even “coined their own terms for hatred directed at them by Muslims” (38). Jews used the terms sinuth for Muslim hatred of Jews and sone for the Muslim hater, thus confirming that Islamic anti-Jewish hatred existed a millennium ago. Continue reading

The End of Britain

England’s degeneration into an islamic ruled state is being accelerated by the depraved, treasonous British authorities with the complicity of the country’s media.

Is it any surprise that a nation which doesn’t even stand up for itself, would certainly not stand with Israel?

The west is facilitating its own demise. We won’t let go of our misplaced white western guilt long enough to save our civilization.

Darkness Descending in England


By Pamela Geller, AMERICAN THINKER
The arrest of over 53 people in the United Kingdom is the beginning of the end for once-great Britain. The leaders of the English Defence League (EDL), Tommy Robinson and Kevin Carroll, were among those arrested, as well as Paul Weston of the British Freedom Party (BFP). I spoke with Kevin Carroll about his recent arrest and that of Robinson and Weston, and he told me the appalling details.
Carroll told me that British authorities tried everything in the book to stop him from running for police and crime commissioner (PCC) for the Bedfordshire Police Authority. Nonetheless, he officially won the right to run for PCC last Friday. But then, the very next day, British authorities carried out these mass arrests of EDL and BFP members, stripping them and forcing them to wear white paper overalls like those given to incarcerated terrorists. They were allowed no phone calls.

Meanwhile, British police raided the homes of Carroll, Robinson, and three others who had been arrested. “They absolutely ransacked mine,” Carroll told me. “They smashed the door off and wrecked my home. They took my only vehicle, with all the tools of my trade inside, and impounded it, as well as Tommy’s car.” The police, the bomb squad, forensics teams, and sniffer dogs spent seven and a half hours stripping Carroll’s van to the bone. “When they finished,” he said, “they found nothing! They loaded it up with bugs and GPS monitors and threw everything in the back; it looks like it’s been in a blender.”
After smashing the door to Carroll’s home off its hinges, police officials repaired it, got a locksmith to put on a new lock, and left with the new keys, leaving Carroll locked out of his own home. When Carroll was released, still wearing his white paper prison suit, it was dark and raining; true to form, police officials offered him no transportation, even though it was late at night on a Sunday.
Robinson is being held in Wandsworth prison, an old and antiquated structure with a large population of Muslim prisoners. Weston was arrested and later released without charge for refusing to leave a reception area without information about Robinson. And it is clear why officials would not want that information to get out: not only has Robinson been placed with the general prison population instead of segregated for his own protection, but prison officials have even put him in a cell with hostile Muslims. He was allowed to call his wife Jenna, and he told her that he knew it was going to be “lively” in the cell. That was an understatement: prison officials have deliberately put Robinson in physical danger and even imperiled his life. Carroll contacted a high-ranking police official to request that Robinson be segregated, and she received a promise that he would be, but it hasn’t happened yet — and Robinson has even been denied bail.
“They are really coming at us with everything,” Carroll told me. “I’m even on police bail at the moment for ‘conspiracy to cause a public nuisance.’” This is a politically motivated and trumped up charge, but in Britain it can carry a life sentence.
According to Carroll, Robinson was incarcerated for leaving the United Kingdom and entering the United States fraudulently for our September 11, 2012 Stop Islamization of Nations free speech conference in New York City. Robinson could get twelve to eighteen months in prison just for that. “They are really turning up the heat here, Pamela,” said Carroll. “They are going after all of us, especially Tommy and me.” The EDL said in a statement: “Tommy has been dragged from one court to another — almost always without any serious chance of conviction — simply in order to help disrupt our activities and to prevent us from voicing our legitimate concerns about the spread of Islamic extremism.”
Carroll’s bail hearing is set for November 30, which gives him just two weeks after the November 15 elections to prepare his defense. Anyone who can vote for Bedfordshire police authority commissioner and who loves freedom should vote for Kevin Carroll; it could be your last hope to preserve the freedom of speech and the principle of the equality of rights for all people in Britain.
Clearly the establishment elites in Britain are extremely worried that Carroll might win and upset the entrenched culture of accommodation to Islam and sharia; in fact, one of the briefs in Carroll’s case actually stated that this was why he was arrested — because he is running for PCC. The dhimmi elites understand that this could be the beginning of their end. “The police,” said Carroll, “are out to finish us on behalf of the establishment.”
This is a defining moment in British history, as significant as any major turning point. It is in many respects like the Night of the Long Knives, which marked the point of no return from Nazism for Germany. With these outrageous and politically motivated arrests, Britain has entered a dark and dangerous new era. Said Weston: “The full power of the State appears to be concentrating on shutting down any political dissent. This does not really feel like a democratic country anymore.”
Carroll is organizing a demonstration outside Wandsworth prison this coming Saturday morning. All free citizens in Britain should be there. And is there no one is the political establishment in the U.K. who has any decency, integrity, or spine? No one who will stand up against these outrages?
Pamela Geller is the publisher of AtlasShrugs.com and the author of the WND Books title Stop the Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance.

Benghazi Lies and Coverup are Unraveling Daily

This disgraceful president doesn't give a fig about the lives of Americans who are at grave risk serving in dangerous places abroad. He only cares about muslims. I suspect the order to stand down in Benghazi was given because the Obama administration did not want to inflame the muslim world by having our soldiers kill the jihadists. American lives are being sacrificed to appease the muslim street. Obama knew this was happening in real time and just allowed our guys to be murdered. Under this treasonous commander and chief the lives of our servicemen and women are at even greater risk than is normal in the military, as well as our intelligence operatives and diplomats.

"EXCLUSIVE: CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack, sources say"Jennifer Griffin, FOX News October 26, 2012
Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours -- enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they too were told to stand down. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Specter gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.
According to sources on the ground, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.
"There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."
Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to US officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.
Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began -- a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe,according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.
[...]Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer's new school.

The islamic, Leftist and UN War Against Jews

The UN, Leftist and jihadi nazis are ratcheting up their war against the Jews and the Jewish state. Unable to destroy Israel militarily, they are using economic warfare. It is long past time to shut down this depraved, OIC controlled, Jew-hating organization.  Meanwhile there are no calls for boycotting companies which do business with Iran who’s rulers call for the genocide of Jews and are developing the weapons to do so as well as brutalizing and oppressing their own citizens. Nor are there any calls for boycotting the numerous other savage sharia ruled nations which regularly commit atrocities against non-muslims and women and who advocate genocide, such as saudi arabia, pakistan, afghanistan, egypt etc. Only Jewish people living in the Jewish homeland are targeted. This is nazism. We live in a sick, morally inverted world.

U.N. Human Rights Council Calls for Boycott of U.S. Companies

U.N.’s war on Israel puts American economy in crosshairs
The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.
The Human Rights Council (HRC), a body dominated by Islamic countries and known for its hostility to, and heavy focus on, the Jewish State, issued the report. The George W. Bush administration refused to participate in the HRC, but President Barack Obama joined it soon after taking office.Members of the HRC include infamous human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Libya, China, and Cuba.
The Obama-approved body maintains a “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories [sic].” The current rapporteur is American college professor Richard Falk, a 9/11 “truther” who once postedan anti-Semitic cartoon on his personal blog.
In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman blasted the report and the HRC’s special rapporteur: “We believe you should have prevented the Secretariat from being a party to Mr. Falk’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Falk’s entire tenure as Special Rapporteur has served to undermine the credibility of the institution of the United Nations.”
The report attempts to instigate a campaign of boycott, divestment, sanctions, and legal action against a litany of international companies doing business in Israel. In addition to American companies, the U.N. targets include major European firms such as Veolia Environnement, Group 4 Security, the Dexia Group, the Volvo Group.
“The costs to companies and businesses of failing to respect international humanitarian law are considerable,” the report warns, “including damage to a company’s public image, impact on shareholder decisions and share price and could result in employees being criminally responsible for rights abuses.”
The report warns American employees of targeted companies that they face legal risks.
“Employees of companies can face investigation and prosecution for human rights violations committed irrespective of where the violation was committed.”
In addition to legal action against American employees of targeted companies, the Special Rapporteur “concludes that all companies that operate in or otherwise have dealings with Israeli settlements should be boycotted.” The companies should ”be prepared to accept any consequences—reputation, financial, or legal—of continuing operations.”
Should the companies continue doing business in Israel, the Human Rights Council “calls on civil society to actively pursue legal and political redress against non-complying business” and “to vigorously pursue initiatives to boycott, divest and sanction the businesses highlighted in this report” and “calls on the international community to consider requesting an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice” to punish the businesses.
When the Obama administration joined the Human Rights Council in 2009, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice pledged, “Working from within, we can make the council a more effective forum to promote and protect human rights.”

The Obama Regime's Political Prisoner

Prosecuting the mohammed filmmaker is depraved and an outrageous violation of the constitution. Recall that Hillary met in secret with the OIC regarding criminalizing criticism of islam. The Obama adminstration is enforcing islamic blasphemy laws and scapegoating an obscure filmmaker for the catastrophe in Libya of its own making. This administration deliberately facilitated the muslim brotherhood and al qaeda takeover of Libya, stood by and did nothing as our people were being attacked in Benghazi, which they were aware of in real time, and has been sending arms to the jihadists in Syria fighting assad. This is an evil and treasonous administration that must be defeated. Another four years will put America and our freedoms in grave peril. Far too many Americans are completely unaware of this and other nefarious machinations going on in this White House.



White House Ordered Prosecution of Mohammed Filmmaker

Romney and Foreign Policy

The reason Romney has one hand tied behind his back is because it is taboo to speak of the threat being islam itself. We will continue to be threatened so long as hundreds of millions of muslims faithfully follow the koran. The biggest geopolitical threat is islam and its devout followers, but politicians are essentially forbidden from saying so, lest they be the ones portrayed as extremist bigots. Elites continue to walk on eggshells regarding this subject.

 Perhaps Americans should stop being treated like children and simply be told the truth that either we preemptively strike Iran militarily or live with an Iranian nuclear bomb. There is no peaceful way, no middle ground to stopping Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

The whole premise of this article seems to be that Romney cannot speak harsh truths about the Middle East, that he must be a phony optimist saying that the muslim world can be made into western style democracies and we won’t have to fight any more wars, lest the infantile American public becomes angry with Romney and won’t vote for him.

Romney’s Structural Handicap In The Debate


An In-Depth Analysis of The Foreign Policy Issue in the Presidential Election
By Barry Rubin, PJ MEDIA
This article’s purpose is to give a full analysis on the foreign policy aspects of the third debate between President Barack Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. Remember that the idea that someone “won” the debate in terms of an outside observer’s standpoint or even based on a poll is misleading. The only important thing is whether either candidate swayed additional voters to his side.
Since I’m writing this to provide a detailed assessment, I’m not going to try to be short. So for your convenience let me begin by briefly explaining how Romney is so handicapped in dealing with foreign policy:

    –He either cannot (or has decided for strategic reasons not to) name the enemy, revolutionary Islamism.
    –He either cannot (or has decided for strategic reasons not to) discuss in sharp terms how Obama has objectively helped this enemy become stronger while weakening America’s allies.
    –It is not politically profitable for him to explain that America faces a long struggle, since this would make voters unhappy and prefer Obama’s promise that he has brought peace.
    –It is not politically profitable for him to explain that democracy and economic development are not panaceas for the Middle East.
Given either the terms of the larger debate or the strategic decisions of the Romney campaign (based on an arguably realistic assessment of American voters, or at least the additional votes he needs to win), Romney starts out at a huge disadvantage. He did not overcome this handicap in the presidential debate. Continue reading

Documented Proof Obama Lied About Benghazi

If this doesn't sink Obama's reelection chances then nothing will.  Obama disgracefully tried to scapegoat an obscure filmmaker and blame America's constitutional freedoms for the jihad attack on our consolate and the murder of four Americans.

Operation Bait and Switch: Muslim Brotherhood scam to dismantle counter terror programs

A Muslim paid informant for the New York Police Department's intelligence unit has turned double snitch and is now saying that he was under orders to "bait" Muslims into saying inflammatory things as he lived a double life. Bait Muslims? The premise is false. Are you baitable? Robert Spencer logically deduces, "if Muslims in New York couldn't be 'baited,' they wouldn't be 'baited.' There is no amount of 'baiting' that could make me say something in favor of terrorism or do something to aid in terrorism."But who really got taken here? The NYPD or the snitch? It seems obvious to me that this plant was working with Muslim Brotherhood groups to set up and embarass the NYPD, as part of their ongoing jihad to dismantle counter terrorism measures especially at NYPD, one of the most effective counter terror agencies in the world. These groups work within law enforcement and the media to systematically destroy our lines of defense. The media disarms the American people in the information battlespace, and Hamas groups like CAIR and ISNA use lawfare and subterfuge to dismantle counter terror measures. Continue reading

Another Jewish Liberal Comes Out Against Pam Geller

Another Jewicidal schmuck puts his two cents in to condemn Pam Geller's anti-jihad 'savage' ads. I'm tired of my faith being represented by the likes of liberals like Bronfman. We desperately need new and vibrant leadership to replace the alta kachers who's politics are stuck in the 20th century. We need new leaders who speak out against jihad and islamic Jew-hatred and who unabashedly support the right of Jews to ALL of the land of Israel and don't promote a fakestinian islamic terror state.

Atlas:

Jewicidal Millionaire Activist Sides with Islamic Supremacist Smear Merchants Against Pro-Israel Ad

The Washington Post continues to dig up these relics from the past, yesterday's men, in their relentless sanction of jihad and sharia. Every week, they publish column after column by judenrat defending the jihad against the Jews, or worse, trolls for Khomeinists like Reza Aslan. But they refuse to run an oped from me or my colleague Robert Spencer.
Edgar M. Bronfman in this WaPo op-ed epitomizes what is wrong with the Jewish community in America today: reflexive, unthinking leftist political correctness, and a suicidal, Jewicidal willingness to throw fellow Jews under the bus in the naive and foolish hope of achieving an alliance with people who are committed supporters of the genocidal jihad against Israel.

The islamization of Minnesota

This should make your blood boil. Doesn't this violate the separation of religion and state that the liberals are always bleating about? Notice they don't make a fuss when schools teach islam, but are ready to step in the moment students do so much as utter a Christian prayer before a football game. Schools cannot teach Christianity or Judaism, so why is this not only acceptable but apparently mandated. It might not be so bad to teach islam if students were going to be taught the truth about islam's history of violent conquests, massacres and forced islamization of indigenous populations. But we know that isn't what is going to be taught at all. Rather they will be taught a fraudulent history of islam as peaceful and tolerant.

Iran October Surprise?

I hope the voters can see through this obvious ploy cooked up to save Obama’s reelection chances. No one in their right mind could think that negotiations are going to stop these mad mullahs from obtaining nuclear weapons. This also goes to show that Iran wants Obama to get reelected enough that they would play along with this pre-election charade.

I hope that Romney brings up the point about how Obama stood on the sidelines when the Iranian people rose up against the regime in 2009. We had a golden opportunity then for regime change and Obama stood by while Iranians begged for his help and were slaughtered in the streets.

Beware of Anti-Israel Pretend "Christians"

Morally bankrupt fake "Christian" leaders use their positions to spread lies about the Jewish state and demand an end to U.S. military aid.

Where are these “Christian” groups regarding the persecution and killing of Christians in muslim countries? Where are they regarding U.S. military aid to human rights violators Pakistan, Egypt etc. 

What did these Jewish groups expect when forming alliances with left-wing churches? This is what happens when you are too narrow minded to reach out to conservative Christians. Jewish organizations need to take off their ideological blinders and start engaging in interfaith dialogue with conservative Christian churches and groups where they will find support for Israel. They need to come to terms with the fact that the left is an enemy of Jews.
 

US Jews cancel talks with Protestants over Israel


[So much for six years of interfaith dialogue]
Associated Press, YNET
Major American Jewish organizations said Wednesday they have cancelled talks with liberal Protestant leaders after the churches sought an investigation of US military aid to Israel.
 
The American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the Jewish Council for Public Affairs, and Conservative and Reform Jewish movements are among those withdrawing from the national Christian-Jewish Roundtable.
The dialogue group was founded in 2004 to ease tensions over escalating church protests against Israeli policy in the Palestinian territories.

The Jewish groups announced their decision in response to a request by several mainline Protestant leaders for Congress to re-evaluate US military aid to the Jewish state.
The church leaders said in an October 5 letter to Congress that Israel was guilty of widespread human rights violations against Palestinians that violated US legal standards for recipients of military aid.
 
Rabbi Steven Wernick, chief executive of the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism called the claims “repugnant, regrettable and morally misguided.” The American Jewish Committee, a co-founder of the dialogue group, has requested a meeting with senior church leaders to “determine a more positive path forward.”
 
ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman said, “In light of the failure of any of the church leaders to reach out to us, we have decided not to attend this interfaith meeting. The blatant lack of sensitivity by the Protestant dialogue partners we had been planning to meet with has seriously damaged the foundation for mutual respect, which is essential for meaningful interfaith dialogue.”
 
The church leaders seeking the congressional hearings represent some of the largest mainline Protestant groups in the United States. They include Presiding Bishop Mark Hanson, head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; Gradye Parsons, a top executive of the Presbyterian Church (USA); Rosemarie Wenner, president of the United Methodist Council of Bishops; and Peg Birk, leader of the National Council of Churches.
In the letter to Congress, the Christian leaders said both Israelis and Palestinians share responsibility for the conflict in the region, and church leaders acknowledged the suffering of both groups. But the leaders said, “we have also witnessed widespread Israeli human rights violations committed against Palestinians.”
Are they claiming they personally were there and saw such activities? Liars.
Arguing that US military aid to Israel was “sustaining the conflict and undermining the long-term security interests of both Israelis and Palestinians,” church leaders said Congress should investigate whether Israel has violated the human rights standards set by the Foreign Assistance Act and the Arms Export Control Act.

The Christian-Jewish Roundtable was scheduled to meet next Monday. Tony Kireopoulos, an interfaith leader for the New York-based National Council of Churches, said Wednesday that the organizations were “disappointed that the meeting wasn’t going forward” and they hoped to restart the dialogue.
The US Episcopal Church, also a member of the interreligious dialogue, didn’t endorse the Protestant statement to Congress. Alexander Baumgarten, the Episcopal public policy director, said the request for congressional hearings was not in line with Episcopal policy.

SWC's Futile Attempt to Convince Obama to Cut Off Contact With the MB

They shouldn't hold their breath waiting for Obama to cut off contacts with his muslim brotherhood friends or even condemn its Jew-hatred. He has made it an official policy to legitimize these modern day nazis.

SWC Urges Pres Obama To Order Cut Off Of All US Contacts With Muslim Brotherhood

 
Simon Weisenthal Centre
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is calling on President Obama to publicly condemn the anti-Semitic call for Jihad against Israel by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badie and to order the cutoff of all contacts with the organization until the threat is withdrawn.
In a speech reported Thursday in al Ahram, Badie said, “The Jews have…spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profane holy places, including their own.” Badie called on Arabs to confront Israel “through Holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance”, adding, “Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress.”

“Badie’s rant confirms our long held view that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is the most dangerous anti-Semitic organization in the world today,” said Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, founder and dean and associate dean, of the leading Jewish human rights NGO.
“We are not dealing with a Youtube video or a lone extremist Imam, but a call to anti-Semitic violence by a man who has tens of millions of followers and leads the organization that controls Egypt’s future. It cannot be business as usual in Washington when such an assault is launched against the Jewish people,” they added.
We urge President Obama to condemn the rhetoric and cut off all official and unofficial US contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood until they desist from their hate and war mongering,” Hier and Cooper concluded.

Brits Funding Israel's Enemies

What makes the writer believe that these tactics subvert the British government’s policies? The fact that the British government is funding the annihilationist agenda of Israel’s enemies effectively means it is supporting the destruction of Israel. There is no other conclusion to be drawn. The Foreign Office knows full well what is being done with this money.

UK funding for anti-Israel NGOs

The Commentator
The British Government is recklessly allocating taxpayer funds to groups which hope to build a Palestinian state, not alongside Israel, but in place of it
When the British taxpayer-funded Hebron Rehabilitation Committee issued a statement in August describing a terror attack by Islamic Jihad as a “heroic operation”, it should have been met with a very swift and severe response from the British Government, and a review of the Foreign Office’s funding practices.
Equally so, when hip-hop artist, Shadia Mansour embarked on a tour of the West Bank on the British taxpayers’ dime, it should have prompted the question: why on earth is the government funding a hip-hop artist’s tour abroad, let alone one to serenade Palestinian children with hateful references to Israel as a “terrorist state” and Judaism as “the hijacked faith”?
Both Mansour and the Hebron Rehabilitation Committee received funding from the Foreign Office, which distributes British taxpayer money through its missions in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. The ostensible purpose is to advance the government’s “objectives and policy goals” in the region.
No doubt the Government (and the taxpayer) must be wondering just how the Government’s “objectives” align with those of a hate-filled rapper and a group which lauds terrorists.
But these cases are hardly unique. They are indicative of a broader trend of financing individuals and organisations whose political activities undermine the Government’s own policies promoting peace in the Middle East.
For its part, the government has been unequivocal in its rejection of the unconscionable movement of boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, and has steadfastly maintained that peace will only come through negotiations and co-operation. Yet the Foreign Commonwealth Office and Department for International Development continue to fund groups that actively advocate the total isolation of the Jewish state.
This well-financed campaign trivialises and politicises human rights, adds fuel to the conflict and, to be clear, seeks nothing less than the ultimate destruction of Israel.
One leading boycott activist – Ahmed Moor – removed the cloud used to obfuscate the motives of the movement, when he declared: “Boycotts, divestment and sanctions does mean the end of the Jewish state… Ending the occupation doesn’t mean anything if it doesn’t mean ending the Jewish state itself.”
Another textbook example of an organisation which receives Government funding by speaking the language of human rights and then proceeds to promote a movement aimed at the destruction of a democratic state is Defence for Children International – Palestine Section (DCI-PS). The organisation ishighly active in encouraging anti-Israel boycotts, divestment, and sanctions and frequently accuses Israel of “apartheid” in a bid to justify its calls for Israel’s total isolation.
Perhaps the most damaging aspect of DCI-PS’s use of humanitarian issues to advance a clear political agenda is the manner in which it represents entirely unbalanced, de-contextualised, and often hysterical accusations as fact.
Aside from its frequent references to Israel’s penchant for “deliberate targeting” and “terrorising” of civilians, the group has reported on alleged civilian deaths while admitting that “no reliable evidence could be gathered” to support some of it claims.
The government’s support for such organisations contributes to the dissemination of unreliable and sensationalised information which impacts both on the public discourse and the policy decisions which follow it.
As for DCI-PS and other NGOs more interested in slamming Israel than advancing legitimate humanitarian interests, their impact is twofold. Firstly, their tactics subvert the government’s efforts for peace in the region. Secondly, any measure of objectivity or credibility they may claim is lost amidst their extreme rhetoric and shameless politicisation of human rights.
It is not only humanitarian virtues that are being exploited by organisations with radical political agendas. Indeed, the Holy Land Trust (HLT) uses its position of privilege as a religious group to espouse virulently anti-Israel views under the guise of religious ideals.
HLT is the recipient of numerous government grants. It counsels it’s members to be evasive with Israeli authorities upon entering the country, supports calls for an academic boycott of Israel (another attack on the government’s position that peace is to be achieved through co-operation and not division), and its executive director and founder, Sami Awad, has asserted that non-violent demonstrations are “not a substitute for the armed struggle” in spite of his group’s stated “commitment to the principles of nonviolence,”
Such activities are not only an egregious misuse of donor funds, they do absolutely nothing to serve the interests of peace.
The government’s foreign policy in the Middle East is centered on helping Israel and the Palestinians“find a way back to negotiations as soon as possible.” This is how peace will be achieved. This is how Israel will realise its dream of peaceful co-existence with its neighbours. This is how the Palestinians will realise their dream of statehood.
Yet the government recklessly allocates taxpayer funds to groups which hope to build a Palestinian state not alongside Israel but in place of it, which ignore the relentless campaign of terror against Israeli civilians that demonises Israel through absurd accusations of “apartheid” and “ethnic cleansing”.
By doing so, the government is merely eroding its very own vision of a two-state solution and fostering an atmosphere of mutual distrust and animosity at a time when understanding and co-operation are most needed.

Hillary Falls On Her Sword

Why is Hillary sacrificing herself for Obama considering the way he treated her and her husband during the '08 primaries? This is a woman who lacks any self-respect or concern for what's in America's best interests. The extent to which Obama is being protected by the media and democrats is disgusting and detrimental to the country. They are more than willing to sacrifice the country in order to put Obama in for another four years.

It isn't that Hillary is blameless, but ultimately the buck stops with the president. The Romney campaign and the GOP cannot allow this matter to end with Hillary falling on her sword. Obama is up to his eyeballs in the Libya fiasco and cannot be allowed to escape responsibility yet again. He didn't hesitate to falsely take credit for the killing of bin laden but now we are to believe he was completely out of the loop regarding Libya?

The Danger of Another Four Years of Obama

Yet another on the long list of Obama's dangerously subversive policies. Obama is comfortable with antisemites. Why has he chosen a Jew-hating, anti-American jihadist salam al-marayati, to represent America at a human rights conference? How can Jews vote for a president who has shown repeatedly his contempt for Jews and the state of Israel?

In order to ingratiate themselves with muslims, our government is openly embracing antisemites. It could be said that our government, under Obama, has an official policy which is hostile to Jews and certainly the Jewish state.

It is ironic that Jews and Israel would be accused of controlling American foreign policy by the ones who actually are controlling foreign policy, the muslim brotherhood of course.

Another reason to be very worried about the re-election of Obama


Arlene Kushner
The Obama administration recently sent the head of the Muslim Public Affairs Council, Salam al-Marayati, to represent the US at a human rights conference in Poland. When this choice was criticized, a State Department spokesman replied that:
Al-Marayati “has been involved in U.S. government initiatives for almost 10 years and has been a valued and highly credible interlocutor on issues affecting Muslim communities.” He said al-Marayati was asked to participate in the conference ”as a reflection of the wide diversity of backgrounds of the American people.”
The Investigative Project on Terrorism, headed by Steve Emerson, observes that:

Obama's Danger to America

This is very distressing. No wonder muslims are confident they can infiltrate and take over America. How can we resist islamization if we don’t even believe our civilization is vastly superior? This lack of cultural and civilizational self-confidence and moral confusion is what is causing Europe to become islamized. Overall this is a depressing article.

America Won’t Survive Another Four Years of Obama

by David P. Goldman, PJ MEDIA
Be afraid. Be very afraid. The America of 2012 is not the America of 2008. If Barack Obama wins this election, the America of 2016 will resemble the beaten and bankrupt countries of Western Europe more than it will the America we grew up in. This isn’t Chicken Little speaking. Take a hard look at the trends, and then drop everything else you had in mind for the next four weeks, and make sure everyone you know votes for Romney-Ryan. We have one last chance to save the republic.

1) Dependency on government handouts: As Dick Morris points out in his latest book Here Come the Black Helicopters!, 20% of Americans received some kind of means-tested government check in 2008, when George W. Bush left office. Now 32% of Americans get some kind of means-tested support — food stamps, disability, welfare, and so forth. That’s a third of the country. Transfer payments are now fully one-fifth of personal income, as I observed in an essay last year. Obama’s arbitrary and perhaps illegal changes in welfare work requirements create a cycle of dependency, as the Romney campaign has warned. They also create a built-in majority for the welfare state. Morris observes that the shift to dependency gives the Democrats a majority on paper. The only question now is turnout. Give this another four years, and the number of Americans who have a stake in economic growth will be a minority of the population.
2) Religious commitment: The Pew Institute’s bombshell survey released this week showed that the number of Americans not affiliated with any religion rose from 15% in 2007 to almost 20% in 2011, and that the unaffiliated are much likelier to vote Democratic (63% of unaffiliated lean Democratic vs. 48% of all registered voters).
This prompted rejoicing in the liberal camp. Writing in the London Guardian, Sarah Posner argued that
…the data shows [conservative Christians] are clearly losing the public. Another survey last week from the Public Religion Research Institute showed that while Mitt Romney has the support of 80% of younger white evangelical millennials (aged 18 to 25), this is a small and diminishing constituency: white evangelicals comprise only 12.3% of that age group. That’s less than half their proportion of the 50 to 64 population. The Pew survey showed that while 32% of Americans aged 50 to 64 are white evangelicals, only 13% of those aged 18 to 29 are.

Egyptian MB Chief Calls For 'Holy Jihad' Against Israel

He can't possibly be referring to the obliteration of Israel since jihad means a peaceful inner struggle according to western liberals.  These are the genocidal savages Israel is surrounded by, yet Israel is blamed for the turmoil in the Middle East.

There is no compromise to be had with an ideology which demands the submission or death of unbelievers and the genocide of Jews.


'Holy Jihad’ is the only way to deal with Israel, says Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood chief Times of Israel

Egypt’s foremost Muslim Brotherhood official called on the Arab world Thursday to replace negotiations with Israel with “holy Jihad,” claiming that if Jews are allowed to pray on the Temple Mount they will destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and supplant it with the third temple.
Mohammed Badie, Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood, declared in a public message published by Egyptian daily Al-Ahram that “the Zionists only understand force,” and that Arabs cannot hope to achieve justice from the Jews “through the corridors of the United Nations or through negotiations.”
‘Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,’ Badie continued. ‘This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance’
Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi was the Muslim Brotherhood’s presidential candidate, but he resigned all official positions in the movement upon taking office. He has said that his government would uphold the Camp David peace accords with Israel, and recently named a new ambassador to Israel.
“The time has come for the Islamic nation to unite around one man for the sake of Jerusalem and Palestine,” Badie said. “The Jews have dominated the land, spread corruption on earth, spilled the blood of believers and in their actions profaned holy places, including their own.”
“Zionists only understand the language of force and will not relent without duress,” Badie continued. “This will only happen through holy Jihad, high sacrifices and all forms of resistance. The day they realize we will march this path and raise the banner of Jihad for the sake of God, is the day they will relent and stop their tyranny.”
Badie, 69, has headed the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2010, and before that served on its governing council for more than a decade. Trained in veterinary medicine and an academic by profession, he served time in jail for political activity as a young man but was pardoned by president Anwar Sadat.

Criminal Negligence and Dhimmitude of Our Government

We have an administration and government agencies in general who's first and only priority is pleasing muslims, even at the expense of  the lives of our diplomats and soldiers abroad.

Sean Hannity interviewed the parents of a Navy SEAL who was killed. They blamed his death on Obama, accusing him of putting a target on their son through intelligence leaks. They also went off about the insane rules of engagement our soldiers are hamstrung by. Why are we bothering to send our soldiers to war and then forbidding them to defend themselves? This is criminal. This president should be impeached. I cannot believe Romney isn't leading by double digits. Americans must not be paying attention to what is going on for the polls to be so close.

Embassies Should have Been on Alert Before Benghazi Attack, Former Official SaysBy Jennifer Scholtes, CQ Staff

A former CIA analyst and congressional aide said this week that the absence of warning from intelligence officials before last month’s attack in Libya highlights a dangerous culture that has spread throughout the intelligence community over the last decade.

The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi cannot altogether be blamed on a failure to share threat information, said Fred Fleitz, who served at the CIA starting in the 1980s, went on to work for the State Department in 2001 and then spent five years as a House Intelligence Committee adviser. But he added that he believes the CIA should have known to issue an urgent advance alert to U.S. embassies throughout the world, even if there was no definitive intelligence suggesting an attack on the consulate.

“It was common sense this was a dangerous day, and this is something the intelligence community should have jumped on,” Fleitz said during a panel Wednesday at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Since analysis about the possible presence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq proved faulty, analysts have been hesitant to predict threats that aren’t first suggested by evidence, Fleitz said. The George W. Bush administration used that analysis as a justification for invading the country, and the work was later pilloried in the media and in Washington.

Fleitz said that when he joined the CIA in 1986, agents were “told to look beyond the evidence, dare to be wrong.”
 “Today, intelligence is strictly evidence-based,” he said. “This makes it difficult to look over the horizon and to make a call that you know in your gut is right, even though the evidence isn’t there yet. And in my view, that’s the job of the intelligence analysts, to dare to be wrong, to make their best call, even when they don’t have all the pieces.”

Fleitz left the House Intelligence Committee last year to be managing editor of a website that provides intelligence analysis. During his time working for the panel, he said, it became clear managers are discouraging analysts from making those kinds of calls.

“There is an effort in the intelligence community that has made it gun-shy, that has made some analysts less willing to stick their necks out and dare to be wrong,” he said. “And there has been a political correctness imposed on intelligence analysts that has made it more difficult for them to think outside the box.”

The terminology used at homeland and intelligence agencies exacerbated those issues, Fleitz said.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s effort early on in her tenure to refer to “man-caused disasters,” rather than always saying “terrorist attacks,” affected the thinking of people working within the nation’s intelligence agencies, he said. Napolitano said she hoped the term would help promote an all-hazards approach at her department, but she soon began referring to terrorism.

Fleitz also cited the example of a threat report the intelligence community presented to the Senate and House intelligence committees this year, which used the term “homegrown radical extremist” rather than “homegrown terrorist.”
 “This sort of reflected a politically correct effort, pressuring this government, pressuring intelligence analysts to think within a certain box, to not make certain calls,” he said.
Although he argues the lack of threat warning before the Benghazi attack constitutes an intelligence failure, Fleitz said the incident was ultimately the State Department’s fault for underestimating the threat and “misinterpreting consequences of the Arab Spring and the seriousness that radical jihadists still pose to this country and to our diplomats.”

Another Obama Revelation

Now we have proof that Obama's professed Christianity is a complete fraud. Not that we needed further confirmation that Barack Hussein Obama feels a kinship with the muslim world and has a deeply ingrained hostility to America and Israel, given his Middle East policies. WND:
Obama's ring: 'There is no god but Allah' He's worn band on wedding-ring finger since before he met Michelle Published: 20 hours ago by Jerome R. CorsiEmail | Archive Jerome R. Corsi, a Harvard Ph.D., is a WND senior staff reporter. He has authored many books, including No. 1 N.Y. Times best-sellers "The Obama Nation" and "Unfit for Command." Corsi's latest book is "Where's the REAL Birth Certificate?"More ↓ Barack Obama's gold band NEW YORK – As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Barack Obama’s practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues. Now, newly published photographs of Obama from the 1980s show that the ring Obama wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Michelle Robinson put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Obama has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada: “There is no god except Allah.” Inscription on Obama's ring The Shahada is the first of the Five Pillars of Islam, expressing the two fundamental beliefs that make a person a Muslim: There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is Allah’s prophet. Sincere recitation of the Shahada is the sole requirement for becoming a Muslim, as it expresses a person’s rejection of all other gods. Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Mark A. Gabriel, Ph.D., examined photographs of Obama’s ring at WND’s request and concluded that the first half of the Shahada is inscribed on it. “There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached,” Gabriel told WND. Jerome Corsi’s “Where’s the REAL Birth Certificate?” carefully documents the story the establishment media still refuses to tell “Dreams from My Real Father” producer Joel Gilbert, an Arabic speaker and an expert on the Middle East, was the first to conclude that Obama’s ring, reportedly from Indonesia, bore an Islamic inscription. Photographs published last week by the New Yorker from Obama’s time at Occidental College, taken by fellows students, indicate that the ring Obama wore three decades ago is the one he is wearing in the White House.

Romney's Foreign Policy Speech

I'm uncomfortable with some of what was in Romney's foreign policy speech. Don't get me wrong, I am fully backing Romney all the way and the contrast between him and Obama is like night and day. Maybe I'm nitpicking but these are some of the items in his speech that bother me. Here is the full text of Romney's speech at Virginia Military Institute.
This is the struggle that is now shaking the entire Middle East to its foundation. It is the struggle of millions and millions of people—men and women, young and old, Muslims, Christians and non-believers—all of whom have had enough of the darkness. It is a struggle for the dignity that comes with freedom, and opportunity, and the right to live under laws of our own making. It is a struggle that has unfolded under green banners in the streets of Iran, in the public squares of Tunisia and Egypt and Yemen, and in the fights for liberty in Iraq, and Afghanistan, and Libya, and now Syria. In short, it is a struggle between liberty and tyranny, justice and oppression, hope and despair.
The "struggles" Romney speaks about in the Middle East aren't about freedom and liberty but movements to install further islamization and sharia. Both parties do not understand the muslim world at all.
The President has failed to lead in Syria, where more than 30,000 men, women, and children have been massacred by the Assad regime over the past 20 months. Violent extremists are flowing into the fight. Our ally Turkey has been attacked. And the conflict threatens stability in the region.
Turkey is no longer an ally but fully in the jihadist camp.
Finally, I will recommit America to the goal of a democratic, prosperous Palestinian state living side by side in peace and security with the Jewish state of Israel. On this vital issue, the President has failed, and what should be a negotiation process has devolved into a series of heated disputes at the United Nations. In this old conflict, as in every challenge we face in the Middle East, only a new President will bring the chance to begin anew.
He knows full well there will not be a democratic, prosperous “palestinian” state living in peace with Israel as he honestly spoke about in that fundraiser. He knows such a state will be an islamic terrorist state committed to the destruction of Israel. People need to be told the truth about the “palestinians” instead of perpetuating lies and myths. If Romney fears losing support by opposing a two-state solution, then he needs to explain and make voters understand why this is not viable. He needs to explain the Jew-hatred endemic in “palestinian” society, the incitement to hatred and murder of Jews being taught to children which makes a two-state solution impossible.
He is billed to add: “This latest assault cannot be blamed on a reprehensible video insulting Islam, despite the administration’s attempts to convince us of that for so long.”
Why does Romney feel the need to call the video “reprehensible”? He too is pandering to muslims. By doing so Romney perpetuates the dhimmi notion that it is a terrible thing to insult islam. Why? Why should we respect an ideology calling for our subjugation or death? Since the attacks had nothing to do with the video why even mention the video at all?
The excerpts of the speech suggest he plans to provide unequivocal support for the rebels in Syria against Syrian President Bashar Assad. “I will work with our partners to identify and organize those members of the opposition who share our values and ensure they obtain the arms they need to defeat Assad’s tanks, helicopters, and fighter jets.” He anticipated that the rebels will one day lead the country and the US should align itself with them.
Bad idea. The “rebels” are al qaeda and the muslim brotherhood. We should stay out of Syria.

islamic Antisemitism

Jew-hatred is intrinsic to islam, rooted in islamic texts. Western liberals do not grasp this fact and believe the islamic world’s rabid hatred for Israel and Jews stems from things Israel has done rather than the ideology of islam.

That Israel has the moral high ground over her enemies should be self-evident. Yet PM Harper is maligned by a morally confused, morally ambiguous, depraved media. But then again, they don’t care what the morally right thing is, they care about currying favor with the oil-rich, vastly more numerical Arab-muslim population.

The wrong and the right thing to do


Anti-Semitism without Jews in Malaysia
By Robert Fulford, NATIONAL POST
In Kuala Lumpur, the capital of Malaysia, politicians and civil servants devote a surprising amount of time to thinking about Israel, 7,612 km away. Sometimes they appear to be obsessed by it. Malaysia has never had a dispute with Israel, but the government encourages the citizens to hate Israel and also to hate Jews whether they are Israelis or not.
Few Malaysians have laid eyes on a Jew; the tiny Jewish community emigrated decades ago. Nevertheless, Malaysia has become an example of a phenomenon called “Anti-Semitism without Jews.” Last March, for instance, the Federal Territory Islamic Affairs Department sent out an official sermon to be read in all mosques, stating that “Muslims must understand Jews are the main enemy to Muslims as proven by their egotistical behaviour and murders performed by them.” About 60% of Malaysians are Muslim.

In Kuala Lumpur, it’s routine to blame the Jews for everything from economic failures to the bad press Malaysia gets in foreign (“Jewish-owned”) newspapers.
The leaders of the country assume that Jews and Israelis deserve to be humiliated as often as possible. In 1984, the New York Philharmonic cancelled a visit because the Malaysian information minister demanded that a composition by Ernest Bloch, an American Jewish composer who died in 1959, be eliminated from their program.
In 1992, an Israeli football player with the Liverpool team was refused permission to play in Malaysia; the team cancelled the visit. The government banned Schindler’s List, calling it anti-German and pro-Jewish propaganda. The same government later decided it could be shown if seven scenes were cut. Steven Spielberg refused, so the government removed all his films from Malaysia’s screens.
In 2003, the prime minister’s political party gave delegates to the United Malays National Organization copies of Henry Ford’s anti-Semitic book from the 1920s, The International Jew, a favourite of Hitler, translated into Bahasa Malay.
For half a century, Israel has tried to establish diplomatic relations, but Kuala Lumpur has always replied that Muslim opinion makes that politically impossible. Instead, Malaysia has joined the Arab campaign to defame Israel. Trade with Israel is officially banned — but goes on nevertheless, through covert arrangements with third countries. (Sales of products from Israel’s Intel computer chip factory to Malaysia amount to many millions of dollars a year. Malaysian policy softens temporarily when confronted with certain products at the right price.)
It’s only when we grasp the unremitting and mindless hostility of countries such as Malaysia that we begin to understand the pain and difficulty of Israel’s place in the world. This is the context in which we should think about the Harper government’s pro-Israel policy. Israel faces automatic enmity from all the Arab nations, most other Muslim-dominated states and the many organizations in democratic countries that dedicate themselves to showering abuse on Israel (and no one else) in the name of human rights.
Except during civil wars, no other state, not even the worst dictatorship, not even Iran or China, is so badly and so often maligned. Now only Canada and the United States (in certain moods) give Israel the benefit of the doubt.
Yet many Canadians apparently believe that there is something unfair in this situation, not in the invective heaped on Israel but in Canada’s habit of friendship with the only democracy in the Middle East. It’s argued that this policy has done harm to Canada. Jeffrey Simpson of The Globe and Mail says that because of our attitude to Israel, “Canada’s reputation in the Arab world is mud.” Tony Burman, of the Toronto Star, former head of Al Jazeera English, and now a journalism teacher at Ryerson University, says that our government’s “passionate pro-Israeli stance” has damaged Canada’s reputation throughout the Middle East “after decades of being one of the world’s respected ‘honest brokers’ on Mideast issues.”
That phrase “honest broker” seems to me one of the most dubious of Canadian clichés. I have not once in several decades seen it applied to us by a citizen of some other country. In my experience, it’s one of those compliments many Canadians, and only Canadians, pay to Canada. Burman expresses nostalgia for an attribute that hasn’t existed, so far as I’m aware, since the 1950s.
Simpson says the Harper government’s policy is based on a simple-minded black-and-white view, on the evangelical Christian streak among Conservatives, on the idea that Israel is a democracy and Arab countries are not and on a hope of prying Canadian Jews away from the Liberals.
Or, just possibly, there might be another reason: Because it’s the right thing to do.

Jihadist Shot Dead in France

Apparently these jihadists didn't get the message that jihad is an internal struggle to better oneself.

I'll be waiting for a statement from Rabbis for Human Rights imploring muslims to "Support peace in word and deed,". This is the group that is taking out ads to counter Pamela Gellers anti-jihad ad campaign.

French Treachery Against Jews

By such an action, Paris is retroactively legitimizing Jordan’s illegal 1948 conquest and occupation of the eastern part of Jerusalem and the ethnic cleansing of Jews. Jerusalem is not a historically divided city, it was only divided during those 19 years and it was never the capital of any muslim state. By what right do the French have to unilaterally declare that any part of Jerusalem does not belong to the Jewish state, but rather to a ficticious state of an invented people? On what basis is there for the Arab-muslims to claim sovereignty over any part of Jerusalem with 3000 years of Jewish history? There is none. Screw the French. The French have a long and sordid history of treachery against the Jews. That France is being lost to islamization is poetic justice.
 

Bypassing Israel, French capital endorses unprecedented agreement with ‘East Jerusalem’


By El Hanan Miller, Times of Israel
France’s most populous administrative zone, encompassing the capital Paris, has signed a cooperation agreement with the Palestinian district of Jerusalem, a move organizers say is designed to send a “political message” of solidarity with the Palestinians and their aspirations for a future capital in the city.
The French region described the agreement as the “first of its kind.”
The decision is a blow to Israel’s claim that the eastern sector is part of its united capital. A spokesman for Israel’s Foreign Ministry said east Jerusalem “does not exist” as a separate entity and that the French council was “living in a make-believe world.”
The Regional Council of Île-de-France voted September 28 in favor of a “decentralized cooperation agreement” with the Palestinian Authority (PA) district of Jerusalem, making it “the first French community to sign an agreement of cooperation with the Arab part of the holy city,” a statement on the council’s website read. The agreement is to be officially signed during the month of October. Continue reading
