  • Fear in Jordan: Arabs Abandoned Us, We Can Rely Only on Israel

    INN ^ | 4/27/2015 | Hillel Fendel
    A Jordanian columnist is extremely concerned that Arab countries have turned their backs on the kingdom, pushing it straight into Israel's lap. In the April 12 edition of the Jordanian daily Al-Dustour, columnist Maher Abu Tair sheds light on what he calls the "sad" contemporary situation in which the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan finds itself. He accuses Arab countries of turning their backs on Jordan and abandoning it, pushing Jordan totally into Israel's economic and political lap. Abu Tair calls strongly for a major change that will enable Jordan to find an alternative to relying on Israel. -snip- "Jordan has...
  • Israel at 67 – Contributing to a Better World [Jeremiah 30]

    04/27/2015 3:01:14 PM PDT · by Jan_Sobieski · 3 replies
    On Thursday, April 23, 2015, the Jewish state celebrated its 67th birthday – corresponding to the 5th of Iyar on the Hebrew calendar. What makes this unique in the annals of history is that Jews in the 20th century reestablished Jewish sovereignty in the Land of Israel after 2082 years of the land having been occupied and the Jewish people having been oppressed, exiled, persecuted – including, most notably, the Spanish Inquisition, pogroms, and the Holocaust. The last Jewish sovereign entity was the Hashmonean dynasty, which lasted 47 years, from 110BCE to 63BCE. The Romans colonized and ruled the land...

    The head of the Islamic State is reportedly injured so badly he can barely move, Kareem Shaheen at The Guardian reports. "Sources tell us Baghdadi is still alive, but still unable to move due to spinal injury sustained in the March air strike," Shaheen tweeted. Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who last year declared himself caliph of the Islamic State (also known as ISIS, ISIL, and Daesh), was reportedly wounded in a US-led airstrike in March. Martin Chulov at The Guardian, who last week broke the news of the airstrike, also says his sources tell him Baghdadi is still alive and being...

    In rare public comments about his successor, George W. Bush slammed President Obama’s foreign policy in a speech over the weekend. The former president, addressing a meeting of Jewish Republican donors at The Venetian hotel in Las Vegas Saturday night, railed against Obama’s decision to ease sanctions on Iran, scoffed at his handling of ISIS and mocked his perceived indecisiveness, Bloomberg News reported. “You think the Middle East is chaotic now?” Bush said while discussing a possible nuclear deal with Iran. “Imagine what it looks like for our grandchildren. That’s how Americans should view the deal.”

    The enigmatic chief of Islamic State jihadist group Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead, Radio Iran has reported on Monday. Earlier, a Guardian report quoting sources with inside knowledge of the group reported that al-Baghdadi was severely injured in a US-led coalition air strike in March. According to that report, al-Baghdadi was inujred at al-Baaj district of Nineveh, close to the Syrian border. It also said he was making a slow recovery and was out of his day-to-day control of the jihadist group. Al-Baghdadi, believed to be in his 40s, had a $10 million US bounty on his head. Since taking...

    It’s not the first time we’ve seen this dynamic, although the situation becomes more acute as John Kerry and Barack Obama press on towards a deal with Iran. The latest poll from Quinnipiac shows a majority of Americans want to embrace a deal, but are pessimistic about its ability to curtail Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons: American voters support 58 – 33 percent the preliminary agreement with Iran to restrict that country’s nuclear program, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.At the same time, only 35 percent of voters are “very confident” or “somewhat confident” the agreement...

    At least 44 Palestinians were killed by "Israeli actions" while sheltering at seven UN schools during last summer's war in Gaza, a UN inquiry has found. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he deplored the deaths and stressed that UN facilities were "inviolable". The inquiry also found that three empty UN schools were used by Palestinian militants to store weapons, and that in two cases they likely fired from them. The 50-day conflict claimed the lives of more than 2,260 people. At least 2,189 were Palestinians, including more than 1,486 civilians, according to the UN. On the Israeli side, 67...

    US Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman had a harsh message for American Jewish leaders on Monday. Sherman warned them that if the new Israeli government does not demonstrate a strong commitment to the two-state solution, the US will have trouble assisting it in efforts to halt international initiatives at the United Nations. Speaking at a conference of the Reform Movement in the United States, Sherman insisted the US government has "always had Israel's back in the international arena, even when it meant standing alone. This will continue to be the case." But, she continued, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's actions prior...

    In testimony last week before the House committee in charge of State Department funding, US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power acknowledged that the Obama administration intends to abandon the US’s 50 year policy of supporting Israel at the United Nations. After going through the tired motions of pledging support for Israel, “when it matters,” Power refused to rule out the possibility that the US would support anti-Israel resolutions in the UN Security Council to limit Israeli sovereignty and control to the lands within the 1949 armistice lines – lines that are indefensible.

    It is well-known the relationship between President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is not a good one. Nevertheless, both Obama and Netanyahu still have to work on a diplomatic level. Apparently, Obama’s support for allowing Iran to have nuclear capabilities is highly favored by the country’s people, who are recently shown celebrating in the streets. It is also the same deal Netanyahu warned about. A deal which, if approved, would result in dire consequences, not just for Israel, but for the world, according to some observers. For Vice President Joe Biden, he might just be oblivious to the...

    Jane’s Defence Weekly reports that Hezbollah has built a runway in the morthern Bekaa Valley to be used for drones, likely Iranian-made UAVs. New satellite images shows the runway in an area 10 kilometers south of the Lebanese village of Hermel.
Jane’s states: The short length of the runway suggests the facility is not intended to smuggle in weapons shipments from Syria or Iran as it is too short for nearly all the transport aircraft used by the air forces of those countries. An alternative explanation is that the runway was built for Iranian-made UAVs, including the Ababil-3, which has been...

    When Barack Obama was elected in 2008 the general consensus was that the new president was brilliant -- with nothing but hearsay to back up the claim. The Obama myth was that America’s 44th president was the “smartest man in the room,” a brainiac too “intelligent for Republicans to understand.” Then, as weeks turned into months and months into almost two terms, Obama’s questionable decisions, obvious lack of economic prowess, faux healthcare expertise, and total lack of foreign policy and national security know-how called into question whether the Obama-is-a-genius assertion might have been a bit hasty. Nothing the president has...

    Many historians call the Armenian Holocaust the first holocaust of the 20th Century, a dress rehearsal for the Nazi nightmare that followed. This April 24 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of roughly 1.5 million Armenian Christians at the hands of Turkish Muslims. That mass slaughter has gone virtually unreported by the broadcast networks. It was a genocide so awful that candidate Barack Obama promised in 2008 he would acknowledge it as such. “As president, I will recognize the Armenian genocide,” he vowed. Obama has violated that promise every year since. This will be the seventh anniversary that Obama...

In 2008 candidate "Barrack Hussein Obama" promised United States citizens that he would do anything possible to prevent the "clinically insane" Iranian Islamic State from obtaining a Nuclear Weapon. ================================ Would Obama finally "cross the red line" (Impeachment) with the America public ... if Americans KNEW that Iran had successfully designed and tested (in North Korea) a nuclear device suitable for a missile launch ? AND a treasonous President Obama (and Iranian Islamic sympathizer vis-a-via Obama's Iranian Chief of Staff Vallerie Jarret) ... had BETRAYED and LIED to the American body politic ? ================================ Is this the "clandestine military...

    The Senate could move next week to legislation would create a congressional review process for a nuclear deal with Iran, Sen. Ben Cardin (D-Md.) said Tuesday. “I think it could get here as early as Thursday,” Cardin said, when asked when the legislation would reach the Senate floor. “I don’t think there will be any floor action until next week.” Senators are expected to turn to the Iran legislation, spearheaded by Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), after they pass a bill to curb human trafficking and vote on Loretta Lynch’s nomination for attorney general. Corker and Cardin reached a deal on...

    A US judge has ruled that New York City must allow its buses to display a controversial ad exposing Islamist anti-Semitism. The ad in question—sponsored by the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI)—portrays a masked Hamas terrorist next to a quote from Hamas’s official MTV TV station declaring that: “Killing Jews is worship that brings us close to Allah.” The ad then asks: “That’s his jihad, what’s yours?” The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) had refused to run the ads, which had been scheduled to run for a full month, claiming it feared they could incite “violence and terrorism”. That decision prompted...
  • We Need to Start Taking Anti-Semites at Their Word

    When a University of Oklahoma fraternity sings a racist chant, we take them at their word. When LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling makes racist comments, we take him at his word. When racist emails of Ferguson officials are leaked, we take them at their word. As we should. Perpetuating racist discourse merely normalizes and reinforces racist behavior and structures. This is true for any system of prejudice and hatred. Why, then, are anti-Semites so rarely taken at their word? Some Iranian officials broadcast their intention to use a nuclear weapon to wipe Israel off the map. But many still believe...

    A Senate staff member told me yesterday there is a classified version of the nuclear framework with Iran that members of the Senate are having difficulty assessing because it has been classified secret and is locked up in the Senate security office. I was told that few Senate staffers are being allowed to read this classified version of the framework. This revelation raises several serious questions about President Obama’s desperate effort to get a nuclear deal with Iran. First, this classified version of the framework agreement must be different from the fact sheet on the framework released by the State...

    The Pentagon today shot down an overseas report that the head of ISIS was seriously wounded during an airstrike in western Iraq. According to a report in the Guardian, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi suffered life-threatening injuries during an assault between the villages of Umm al-Rous and al-Qaraan. Al-Baghdadi is no longer in control of day-to-day operations, Iraqi sources said, according to the Guardian.

    A U.S. aircraft carrier and its warplanes are shadowing an Iranian convoy approaching Yemen, Pentagon sources told Fox News, amid suspicions that the ships may be carrying weapons for rebel fighters. Sources told Fox News that the USS Theodore Roosevelt is not only tracking the convoy, but also launching F/A-18 Hornets to conduct "manned reconnaissance" of the estimated nine ships in the Iranian convoy. The movements escalate a standoff in the waters off Yemen, even as the U.S. and other world powers are trying to hammer out a diplomatic deal with Iran on its nuclear program. Already, the U.S. and...

    RUSH: Did you see where Iran's foreign minister, Javad Zarif, has an op-ed in the New York Times? I kid you not. The Iranian foreign minister is considered an ally by the New York Times op-ed page. You see, ladies and gentlemen, there is so much controversy over the Iranian nuclear deal that Obama's putting together that the New York Times -- hoping to facilitate things for Obama -- offers op-ed space to the Iranian foreign minister, Javad Zarif. When you skim this thing, it looks like a regular editorial from the New York Times editors. Just like when old...

    Iran will not grant the International Atomic Energy Agency a second entry to the Parchin military base, the spokesman for Iran's Atomic Energy Organization said on Monday. "Parchin is a military base," Behrouz Kamalvandi said at a news conference in Tehran. "They [the IAEA] have been raising the issue for years. It is important for their propaganda. They know we will not allow them to visit the Parchin base again, but they think raising the issue benefits the propaganda." Kamalvandi said that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, while serving as Iran's chief negotiator years ago, had allowed the IAEA to enter...

    RUSH: The Corker bill, I finally, folks, have completed my research into this. I didn't want to jump the gun on it. Andy McCarthy's exactly right; it's worse than nothing. The Corker bill is worse than nothing, and it is exactly what I assumed. I've been doing some examination of the Corker bill because Obama's out engaging in what is a treaty, but he doesn't want to call it a treaty. In fact, he wants to call it nonbinding, his deal with Iran, so that there will not be any Senate oversight. He doesn't want any Senate oversight, that's why...
