  • Bias Against Israel

    Weekly Standard ^ | 6/30/14 | NOAH POLLAK
    Tel Aviv Here is what bias against Israel looks like. Three Israeli teenagers are abducted by the terrorist group Hamas, and after a desperate weeks-long search for the boys, they are finally found—dead in shallow graves near the site of the abduction. While all this is happening, Hamas instigates a new round of missile attacks from Gaza, firing 56 rockets at southern Israeli communities. The Obama administration's response? Express sympathy but call on Israel to refrain from responding. Moments after the news broke today that the bodies of the teenagers had been found, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the...

    First Things ^ | March 2014 | Michael W. Hannon
    Alasdair MacIntyre once quipped that “facts, like telescopes and wigs for gentlemen, were a seventeenth-century invention.” Something similar can be said about sexual orientation: Heterosexuals, like typewriters and urinals (also, obviously, for gentlemen), were an invention of the 1860s. Contrary to our cultural preconceptions and the lies of what has come to be called “orientation essentialism,” “straight” and “gay” are not ageless absolutes. Sexual orientation is a conceptual scheme with a history, and a dark one at that. It is a history that began far more recently than most people know, and it is one that will likely end much...

    As promised, the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. appealed to an expanded panel of a federal appeals court in San Francisco today to allow it to keep operating at Point Reyes National Seashore. The oyster farm and owner Kevin Lunny asked an 11-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reconsider a decision in which a smaller panel of the court ruled against the company by a 2 to 1 vote in September. In that ruling, the smaller panel upheld a federal trial judge’s denial of a preliminary injunction that would have allowed the oyster harvesting to continue...

    The transcript of my speech today at the national meeting of ACT for America. The late Southern Sudanese leader John Garang, in 1999, posed the following dual-part existential question for our era: Is the call for jihad against a particular people a religious right of those calling for it, or is it a human rights violation against the people upon whom jihad is declared and waged? As I hope to make plain, the answer to both parts of John Garang’s query is “Yes!” Hamas cleric Muhsen Abu ‘Ita was interviewed July 13, 2008, on Al-Aqsa TV. After reminding listeners that...

"We must not mimic their shallow approach," he said to modest applause in a Friday afternoon speech here. Jindal, who just turned 40, is up for re-election this fall and is widely assumed by...

    [Dr. Kermit] Gosnell was charged last week with killing seven babies born alive and with the 2009 death of a 41-year-old refugee after a botched abortion at the clinic, which prosecutors have called a drug mill by day and abortion mill by night. The medical practice alone netted him at least $1.8 million a year, much of it in cash, they say. Prosecutors said uncounted hundreds more babies died there. “(He) regularly and illegally delivered live, viable babies in the third trimester of pregnancy and then murdered these newborns by severing their spinal cords with scissors,” said a report of...

    A Sudanese refugee is walking barefoot in the halls of Congress to drum up support in the fight against genocide in his home country. The plight of Sudan’s refugees has been largely ignored on the international level, where United Nations Human Rights officials have taken aim at Israel for maintaining a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria and a maritime blockade on the Hamas terrorist regime in Gaza. The anti-Israel campaign took on a different note in Tel Aviv Monday night, where human rights campaigners protested outside the Opera House to denounce the Cape Town Opera.

When asked about Fidel Castro’s recent comments, in which the Cuban leader told Ahmadinejad to stop attacking the Jews, denying the Holocaust and being anti- Semitic, Ahmadinejad said he is not an anti-Semite. “We’ve never been anti- Semitic – when was I anti- Semitic?” he said. “The Jews live in Iran, like every other person who lives in Iran freely.”

    (Reuters) - A U.S. district court issued a preliminary injunction on Monday stopping federal funding of human embryonic stem cell research, in a slap to the Obama administration's new guidelines on the sensitive issue. The court ruled in favor of a suit filed in June by researchers who said human embryonic stem cell research involved the destruction of human embryos. Judge Royce Lamberth granted the injunction after finding the lawsuit would likely succeed because the guidelines violated law banning the use of federal funds to destroy human embryos.

    In a letter to President Obama this week, 87 Senators urged the president to support Israel’s right to self-defense against the threats of terrorism from Hamas and Hezbollah and a nuclear-bound Iran that has repeatedly pledged to wipe Israel off the map. In another time, such counsel would be redundant. For most of Israel’s 60-year existence, the Jewish state has been able to count on the stalwart support of its American ally against the many enemies arrayed against it. As Arab states launched wars with exterminationist intent, and as the international community undermined Israel through the agency of the United...

The woman who alleged the assault through her lawyer declined initially to be interviewed by police and did not want officers to pursue the matter, the Multnomah County district attorney's office said Wednesday. She later reconsidered and met with Portland police detectives in January 2009, telling them she "was repeatedly subjected to unwanted...

    Even as the new Obama policies were igniting tinderboxes in the Palestinian territories, their most dangerous effects were being felt in Iran. From the beginning of his presidency, Obama had made “reaching out” to the Iranian police state a major part of his approach to the Middle East. In March 2009, he addressed a special Persian New Year message to the Iranian people and the leaders of what he called the “Islamic Republic of Iran,” itself an ingratiating reference that served to legitimize the totalitarian rule imposed on the country by the 1979 overthrow of the shah.

A spokesman accused the firm of "deliberate killing" and said its guards fired without provocation. Washington accuses Iran's Revolutionary Guards' elite Qods force of supporting militias who have attacked U.S. troops. General David Petraeus, speaking at a U.S. military base...

    ARLINGTON NATIONAL CEMETERY, Va., Sept. 17, 2007 – There is evil in the world, and the United States military stands ready to take on that evil, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff told Families United for a Strong America here today. Many members of the group lost family members in Iraq and Afghanistan. They invited Marine Gen. Peter Pace to help them place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns here and then to address their rededication ceremony at the Memorial Amphitheater. “Gatherings like this are the most meaningful and the most difficult,” Pace told the...

    WASHINGTON As the Senate debates taking a new course in Iraq, President Bush's national security adviser scheduled a meeting with more than a dozen Republican senators in a bid to shore up eroding support for the war. Stephen Hadley was to visit Capitol Hill on Wednesday one of many such forays in recent days as the White House finalized a 23-page progress report on Iraq that concludes the government in Baghdad has made little progress in meeting reform goals laid down by Bush and Congress. Iraq's inability to pass laws considered key to national cohesion and economic recovery or achieve...

    WASHINGTON, June 6, 2007 – The Iraqi people are taking a stand against al Qaeda beyond Anbar province, Multinational Force Iraq’s new spokesman said today. Army Brig. Gen. Kevin J. Bergner, who spoke during a phone interview today, called the Iraqis’ stance against the terror group the “Anbar Awakening.” In the past six months, local tribal leaders and sheikhs in the Sunni province have disavowed the terror group’s tactics and have turned to the Iraqi government. Violence in the province has plummeted, and local men are flocking to police and army recruiting stations. Now Iraqis outside Anbar are experiencing their...

    Mitt Romney is said to be troubled by Mormonism's polygamous past. No mentions however about that whole black people being directly descended from Cain thing. Brigham Young, the 2nd Prophet of the Mormon sect said: "You see some classes of the human family that are black, uncouth, uncomely, disagreeable, sad, low in their habits, wild, and seemingly without the blessings of the intelligence that is generally bestowed upon mankind. "Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of...

    If the Council on American Islamic Relations' (CAIR) official mission is "to enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding," then why would it refuse to participate in a rally denouncing Islamist terrorism? The reasons are obvious, as Senator Charles Schumer (D, New York) characterizes CAIR as an organization "which we know has ties to terrorism" (more evidence shown below). The United American Committee (UAC) has scheduled a second annual Rally Against Islamofascism Day (R.A.I.D.) for Saturday March 31st, 2007, the purpose of which is "a joint...

    WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court left an 81-year-old retired engineer without a penny to show for his role in exposing fraud at a former nuclear weapons plant in a ruling that makes it harder for whistle-blowers to claim cash rewards. James Stone stood to collect up to $1 million from a lawsuit he filed in 1989 against Rockwell International, now part of aerospace giant Boeing Co., over problems with environmental cleanup at the now-closed Rocky Flats nuclear weapons plant northwest of Denver. A court eventually ordered Rockwell to pay the government nearly $4.2 million for false claims the company submitted....
