"....we're going to be talking for a half hour or so to Andrew McCarthy, who has written a book. It's The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America. It is especially timely given what's happening in Israel via this flotilla, the misreporting regarding the Israelis with this flotilla incident over the weekend. The Israelis and the Egyptians set up blockades to prevent more weapons from getting to Hamas in Gaza. It was purely and simply that. The Turkish government, which is now aggressively throwing in with Iran and even Hugo Chavez, led this provocation. ...."
"Islamists have taken over the Turkish government and orchestrated this episode with the flotilla and the blockade of Hamas and Gaza. The Turkish government led this provocation and they've now thrown in with Iran. They've thrown in with Hugo Chavez."
"The alliances that the Islamist Turkish government have, not only threaten Israel but they threaten us because they are still in NATO. You could almost look at it as the wolf's underneath the tent, the wolf's gotten in the tent in a way. And to understand this -- and I'm going to be asking Andy specifically about this tomorrow so he can elaborate on it because he spent a lot of time writing this book: The Grand Jihad: How Islam and the Left Sabotage America. But to understand this incident and many other things happening around the world regarding all this you have to read Andy's book. Obama has obvious hostility towards Israel, and the United Nations now condemns Israel and demands explanation."
"But there's no question. Obama's treatment of Benjamin Netanyahu? I mean, Netanyahu comes to Washington, he's in the Oval Office, and he doesn't get any photo session, certainly not a state dinner. He doesn't even get lunch! Obama says (doing impression), "This settlement plan, it ain't working. I'm going to see my family for dinner. You got three hours. I want to see major changes when I come back." That kind of treatment of an ally we don't hear about much in our American history. Israel is being treated as the problem in the area. Everybody talks about "a nuclear-free Middle East." What everybody's angling here for, what the Obama administration may not understand (or they may understand it which makes it even worse) is a Jew-free Middle East. That's what they want. They want an Israel-free Middle East. Obama is putting pressure on Israel. The way he's treated Benjamin Netanyahu, his public attempts at pacifying the Muslim world and now condemning Israel for this planned provocation has emboldened Israel's enemies and ours."
"....the Turkish group behind this flotilla is called the Turkish Foundation for Human Rights and Freedom and Humanitarian Relief, or the IHH. They want to overthrow the Turkish government and impose Sharia law in Turkey. ....this Turkish group was behind the millennium bomber in 2000. So that's who it is that sponsored this so-called peaceful humanitarian flotilla that got into the contretemps with Israel."

Didn’t Turkey want to join the EU?

It is tiresome with these anti-american scumbags.
Not a one of these $%ithole would be where it is were it not for the USA. Either in the technology we invented, or the military support we have given them ofver the last 70 years.
