    Former Congressman Ron Paul said the US knows ‘more than it is telling’ about the Malaysian aircraft that crashed in eastern Ukraine last month, killing 298 people on board and seriously damaging US-Russian relations in the process. In an effort to inject some balance of opinion, not to mention pure sanity, into the ongoing debate over what happened to Malaysian Flight MH17, Ron Paul is convinced the US government is withholding information on the catastrophe. "The US government has grown strangely quiet on the accusation that it was Russia or her allies that brought down the Malaysian airliner with a...

It’s going to be interesting.Much of what Pat is upset about is, frankly, upsetting. He may go overboard from time to time, but he is right to be worried about the tendency of the Bill Kristols of the world to equate greatness with military adventurism, and he’s dead on when he says politicians of both parties...

Israel absolutely has the right to defend itself, and we are Israel’s staunchest ally. But you also can’t condone the killing of all of these innocent children.” “I think everyone involved is frustrated,” Jarrett said. “But you can’t let your frustration get in the way of trying to be a constructive player here, and that’s what [Obama's] determined to do.”

    Israelis and Palestinians are still burying their loved ones as Gaza's third war in six years continues. Since July 8, when this war began, more than 1,600 Palestinian and 65 Israeli lives have been sacrificed. Many in the world are heartbroken in the powerless certainty that more will die, that more are being killed every hour. This tragedy results from the deliberate obstruction of a promising move toward peace in the region, when a reconciliation agreement among the Palestinian factions was announced in April. This was a major concession by Hamas, in opening Gaza to joint control under a technocratic...

The Lancet, a top tier scientific journal by all accounts, did a great dis-service to the medical community. The publication of an extremely biased one-sided analysis of such a complex situation is outrageous and full of lies. The authors (who deceitfully disclosed no conflict of interest) are members of biased pro-Palestinian groups who are hostile to Israel. And while individuals are definitely entitled to their opinions, hiding behind an MD degree does not entitle one to defame under the pretense of a publication in a...

    The Lancet was once one of the world’s premier medical journals, but it has been captured by anti-Israel extremists, who are now banning letters of rejoinder from Israeli academics.  This is part of an effort to isolate and ultimate strangle Israel through capture of world institutions of information, science, culture, finance, and trade. The general model used is the effort to topple the apartheid regime in South Africa.  But this time around, instead of support for the values of democracy, human equality, human rights, andn tolerance, the activists are supporting a murderous, intolerant, woman- and homosexual-hating regime that seeks to...

Kerry's spokesperson, Jen Psaki, told reporters in Washington on Tuesday that the two men have not spoken since a brief phone call over the situation in Gaza ended because of "communications problems."

    Jimmy Carter just can’t seem to stop reminding everyone of why he was a one-term president. In an op-ed with Mary Robinson, the disgraced former leader drags out the same old line about dealing with Hamas. The op-ed is entitled “How to Fix It”. The solution involves lifting the blockade, paying Hamas salaries and generally giving the terrorist group everything it wants including diplomatic recognition. Carter blames Israel (shocker) for the current conflict, accusing Israel of sabotaging the PLO-Hamas Unity agreement which he calls “a promising move toward peace in the region”. It’s not surprising that Carter’s vision of peace...

    The blatant partiality of the United States in favor of Israel has already turned the words “peace process” into a bitter joke. Over many decades, American indulgence of Israel has blighted prospects of any resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians. Consequently, occupation has been entrenched and Israeli colonization of the West Bank and East Jerusalem has metastasized, going from under 200,000 illegal settlers in 1991 to over 600,000 today. This partiality only increases when Israel goes to war. By guaranteeing Israel impunity in its military actions, the United States has contributed massively to the bloodshed in Gaza in recent...

Reporters stuck to asking questions that they evidently knew Obama would be comfortable answering. None of them asked him about any of his administration scandals. ABC’s Jon Karl, usually a tough questioner of Obama and his spokesmen, asked a rambling question that played right into the Democrats’ “economic patriotism” canard. Despite the fact that the president showed a passionless, bloodless, disinterested face to the world, he still managed to do some damage. Chris Jansing of CNN asked Obama if the sanctions against...

    Before deconstructing Jimmy Carter’s pro-Hamas screed in Foreign Policy, it’s worth putting into context exactly who he’s defending. In 1978, Carter proudly brokered the Camp David Peace Accords that granted the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood vehemently rejected the treaty, ultimately assassinating Egyptian President Anwar Sadat for signing it AND for abandoning efforts to form a Palestinian state.(video at link)Before his death, Sadat issued several warnings about the Muslim Brotherhood, saying that the “most dangerous thing about them are the ideas that they put into the minds of the youth and also for the other political parties that...

    MSNBC being left-wing is nothing new. But it is beyond the pale for an MSNBC anchor to say that Israel's war of self defense against terrorists (who use children and civilians as human shields) has resulted in Israel being responsible for deaths equal to "one hundred 9/11s."

    “Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies,” as it is widely known on the Internet, states that as any online comment thread grows longer, “the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 100%.” With all due respect to American internet-law pioneer and free-speech advocate Mike Godwin, perhaps the law ought to be renamed after Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who might just be the world’s most verbally promiscuous trivializer of the Nazi legacy.“Just like Hitler, who sought to establish a race free of all faults, Israel is chasing after the same target,” Mr. Erdogan recently told supporters at a...

    A Swedish politician resigned following sharp criticism after he wrote on Facebook that “Jewish pigs” are responsible for mass murders in Gaza, according to the English language Swedish website The Local.Omar Omeirat, Social Democrat candidate for the town council of Filipstad, central Sweden, gave a speech in the town on Friday evening advocating diversity and openness. On Saturday he sang a very different tune. “The entire Muslim world is sitting and watching while our brothers and sisters in Palestine are slaughtered by the Jewish pigs,” Omeritat wrote on his Facebook page, according to The Local. “May Allah strengthen those who...

    Israel has agreed to extend a ceasefire that ended a month of fighting in Gaza beyond its Friday expiration date, the Jerusalem Post reports. However, Hamas says it will resume fighting unless significant progress is made in negotiations. For Hamas, significant progress means significant concessions on its demands for money, an end to Israel’s blockade, and access for Gaza’s Palestinians into Israel. If the past is any guide, Hamas would use the money and the blockade to rearm, and use access into Israel to conduct terrorism.President Obama seems to side with Hamas. At a press conference today, he essentially...

    When young California-based developer Ivan Pardo launched smartphone app Buycott last year, users at first seized upon its technology to avoid putting coins in the coffers of the conservative billionaire Koch brothers. Everyday shoppers using iPhones or Android devices could scan the barcode of, say, Brawny paper towel or Dixie cups and trace the corporate ownership of both kitchen cupboard staples to Koch Industries , the conglomerate run by the politically active (and thereby controversial) industrialists Charles and David Koch. Other popular user-generated Buycott campaigns at the time of its launch included Demand GMO Labeling, allowing shoppers to scan a...

    Controversial far-left British MP George Galloway has declared his constituency an "Israel-free zone", in comments that are bound to invite further allegations of racism. The notoriously anti-Israel Galloway told a meeting of the Respect Party which he heads that Israelis of any persuasion were "not welcome" in Bradford, where serves as MP. video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZMSM5vvAmYs "We have declared Bradford an Israel free zone," he told party activists at the meeting in Leeds. "We don’t want any Israeli goods. We don’t want any Israeli services. We don’t want any Israeli academics, coming to the university or the college. We don’t even want...

    Former President Jimmy Carter, who once accused Israel of being an “apartheid state” worse than South Africa, has gone even further, rebuking the Jewish State for the way it has waged war with Hamas while actually siding with the terrorists. Writing together with former Irish president Mary Robinson in Foreign Policy magazine, Mr. Carter stated that, “There is no humane or legal justification for the way the Israeli Defense Forces are conducting this war,” calling on Israel and the West to recognize Hamas’s “legitimacy as a political actor.” Mr. Carter claims that Hamas, by recently joining together with the Palestinian...

    Maybe it’s just a coincidence that somebody like Jesse Ventura is also a major fan of Fidel Castro and Che Guevara? (Or claims to be for the publicity value among the “hip”?) Recalling his visit to Cuba and meeting with Fidel Castro in 2002 Ventura grew misty-eyed: “Fidel Castro looked into my eyes and told me I was a man of great courage…Maybe he (Castro) saw a little of him in me.” Recall the Cowardly Lion’s reaction when the Wizard grants him “the NERVE.” Well, Jesse Ventura’s moronic gloating outdoes even the lion’s (“Shucks, folks, I’m speechless..ha-ha…Ain’t it the truth!...
