    In the 1940s, when the Jews in America woke up to the unspeakable horror that their very own relatives or fellow-Jews in Germany, Poland, Vichy France and all over Europe were being savagely, grotesquely, sadistically murdered by Hitler, aided and gleefully abetted by the Muslim Brotherhood...sound familiar?, and that — worse to them — their hero FDR knew about Hitler's slaughtering rampage but failed to take a moment from puffing tobacco through his pretentious cigarette holder to save them, they went into a period of sustained mourning. While Jews of every political persuasion found it impossible to wrap their minds...

In the month of Nisan in the twentieth year of King Artaxerxes, when wine was brought for him, I took the wine and gave it to the king. I had not been sad in his presence before, 2. so the king asked me, “Why does your face look so sad when you are not ill? This can be nothing but sadness of heart.” I was very much afraid, 3. but I said to the king, “May the king live forever! Why should my...
  • Ahmadinejad at the UN: Sympathy for the Devil?

    It is beyond reason. The inmates clearly have control of the asylum. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's rant before the UN General Assembly in New York this week would better have been delivered in Stockholm. The famous Stockholm Syndrome was named for the way some hostages began to identify with their terrorist captors. It was offered as a psychological disorder. In New York, at the UN, this psychological disorder is the new order of business. Ahmadinejad called for a new world order. Of what? A rule of a UN world body dominated--or at least held hostage by--the Terroristans that make up an increasing...

    Late yesterday afternoon, in an obvious attempt to rescue President Obama from what could and should be a brutal round of Sunday shows examining the cover up the White House is currently engaged in with respect to the sacking of our consulate in Libya, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) released a statement revising its assessment of the attack. It is now the official position of the American intelligence community that what happened in Benghazi was a pre-planned terrorist attack. [SNIP] And this, my friends, is how a cover up works. And so, the only response to...
  • Russia and Islam: The End of Peaceful Coexistence?

    09/29/2012 3:50:42 PM PDT · by marshmallow · 44 replies
    Until recently traditional Muslims and Salafists lived harmoniously side-by-side in Tatarstan. No longerFOR years Tatarstan was held up as a model of stability and tranquillity as the Muslim-majority republics of the Russian north Caucasus became embroiled in a separatist conflict that spawned a still-continuing civil war along religious lines. More than half of Tatarstan’s 4m people are Sunni Muslims who have long enjoyed friendly relations with the rest of Russia. Kazan, the regional capital on the Volga river 450 miles (724km) east of Moscow, is a prosperous and attractive city. That sense of calm has changed since July, when assassins...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 29 Sep | John Semmens
    Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s speech to the United Nations about the danger posed by Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons was called unimpressive by Obama Administration spokesman Tommy Vietor. “Netanyahu’s voice is merely one among many,” Vietor pointed out. “On top of that he speaks for a tiny minority of the region’s population, most of which hold diametrically opposite views. His self-serving brief for the interests of this minority need to be juxtaposed against the conflicting interests of the majority. I think the President was on target when he characterized Netanyahu’s fears as ‘noise’ he tries to ignore.” Vietor questioned...

    Weekly Standard ^ | SEP 28, 2012 | DANIEL HALPER
    THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned that Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has scheduled a phone call for late morning Friday with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. President Obama refused to meet with Netanyahu on his trip to the United States, and the Israeli government presumably thought a meeting with the opposition candidate in the absence of one with the sitting president would be too provocative. But there was apparently an eagerness on the Israeli prime minister's part to talk with Romney in order to help win as broad American support as possible for the red lines he outlined in his...

    Coach is Right ^ | September 29th, 2012 | Jim Emerson
    This week Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the spineless leaders at the United Nations warning them about the threat to World Peace if Iran was allowed to build a nuclear bomb. Pointing out his belief that the Islamic Republic isn’t taking U.N. sanctions seriously and that a threat or use of Military action should be considered. He demanded that U.S. “present” President to take a stand and deliver an ultimatum to Iran. The Prime Minister told the UN that Iran may have Nuclear Weapons by next summer. Mr. Netanyahu pressed the urgency of stopping the rouge nation from advancing...

    The Obama administration has released details of a plan to infuse another $300 million into West Bank and Gaza construction projects, spending it deems critical toward attaining the “success of a future Palestinian state.” Despite combined U.S. and international donor-community efforts, a significant portion of the public infrastructure currently under Palestinian Authority control remains in need of expansion or repair, according to the U.S. Agency for International Development, the USAID. Obama, through USAID, is stepping in to meet the need as a successful Palestinian state “depends upon an infrastructure system capable of providing basic services to a growing population,” the...

    The Weekly Standard ^ | August 21, 2012 | Elliott Abrams, former Asst Secretary of State
    How America can stop what the New York Times calls “Israel’s March to War” is the hot topic this month. The issue—for the Times—is whether Israel is on the verge of bombing Iran’s nuclear sites, or can be persuaded to delay that decision and rely on the United States instead. This is what a parade of U.S. officials visiting Jerusalem this summer have counseled (and pressured) Israel to do. But the comments of Israel’s top officials suggest that its patience is wearing thin and that it may act soon, in weeks if not months. As the Associated Press put it,...

    This is a plan that the leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, mentioned in a Sy Hersh article back in 2007. A plan that involves the persistent metamorphosis of the region into mini states, and micro states — among the various ethic and religious factions. A plan that is often attributed to Zbigniew Brzezinski (the intellectual godfather of this strategy). In 2007 Nasrallah told Seymour Hersh that the American plan was, “the drawing of a new map for the region.” Nasrallah believed that this stratagem would leave Israel surrounded, by a host of small and tranquil countries. He said that...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration's plan to transfer $450 million in cash to Egypt hit a roadblock Friday as a top House committee chairwoman blocked the move, saying it warrants further review.Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, said the State Department had notified Congress of plans to move the money to the new government of President Mohammed Morsi as Cairo struggles economically. The money is part of the nearly $1 billion in debt relief that President Barack Obama had promised Egypt earlier this year."This proposal comes to Congress at a point when the U.S.-Egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny,...

    The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it intends to give Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the move immediately encountered resistance from lawmakers wary of foreign aid in general and of Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood. The aid is part of $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its economy and its transition to democracy following the overthrow last year of Hosni Mubarak, the country’s autocratic president.
