Israel: Treat Iran Like The Sudan
March 30, 2009
Unbeknownst to the media till now, Israel stealthily carried out an operation in January in the Sudan, in which the IAF (Israeli Air Force) successfully carried out an attack on a convoy of 17 Hamas trucks loaded with weapons heading towards Egypt...with the final destination of Gaza.
Mazel Tov, guys...
Our friends know how to keep stealth operations, stealth. They did it in the 80s with Saddam's reactor. They did in September of 2007 with Syria's reactor. They did it in the Sudan against Hamas...and now we need them to do it one more time...against the pernicious Persians.
Fizzle their fission device...before they become an atomic gadfly...
There is no doubt, according to myriad sources, that Iran is about to possess the nuclear ability to do irreparable damage to the Jewish State. As soon as they have the capabilities in their heinous hands, they WILL use it. Israel is well aware of this...and will be compelled to act to deter this from occurring, despite world condemnation.
Survival has a way of compelling one to act, ya know?
But Israel's efforts to hinder the miscreant mullahs will bless far more than simply itself...if Iran possesses nuclear capabilities, Europe is in peril, the entire Middle East (sans Syria and Lebanon) are at grave risk...and we're not all too comfy either.
Hamas got a raw reminder by Israel's covert operations in January...it's time for Mahmoud and the Mullahs to feel the sting right in their Russian-built nuclear facility...and there's never a better time than the present.
Shalom through strength, as Ronnie always said....
Who's Minding The Money?
March 26, 2009
The US $900 million pledge to the PA, has come with an assurance by US Sec. of State Hillary Clinton that no US funds, earmarked for Gaza, would end up in the “wrong hands.” And by the wrong hands, Clinton is referring to Hamas.
Really? They (Hamas) are the legally elected majority in the PA...how will Clinton perform that magical trick?
The empirical evidence has shown this is impossible. Billions of dollars have streamed into Gaza from hundreds of countries and international organizations. This money was sent with the intention of motivating Gaza economic development and quality of life for Gazans (to accomplish that, all they need do is eliminate Hamas). But that money has remained largely unaccounted for by the international community. How much money has actually reached 'Palestinian' civilians? No one knows. But what we do know is Hamas has acquired funds curiously during this time to replenish their weapons stock...which they have never ceased to use to pummel innocent Israelis in their homes and schools.
In a recent piece I mentioned that the US funds would be transferred through the UN to the PA...and guess what agency at the UN will be the happy messenger? UNRWA.
UNRWA, is the United Nations Relief Works Agency, established in 1949 to aid 'Palestinian' refugees. Problem is...they have shown dangerous partiality to Hamas terrorists.
Some facts about UNRWA:
1. In 2004, a former UNRWA Commissioner-General, Peter Hansen, exposed to the Canadian Broadcasting Company that UNRWA may very well employ Hamas members.
2. UNRWA has employed numerous high profile terrorists, including top Islamic Jihad rocket maker, Awad al-Qiq, killed in an Israeli air strike last May. Al-Qiq was the headmaster and science instructor at an UNRWA school in Rafah.
3. Another terrorist, Hamas interior minister and head of the Executive Force, Said Siyam was a teacher for over two decades in UNRWA schools.
Nice planning there, O...hey...why don't we simply fill their arsenal for them, and bypass the miscreant middlemen?
Not one single penny of this $900 million should find its way into the coffers of the PA. And if it is released to the UN to be 'transferred'...we may live to regret it...by the innocent blood shed, using our funds.
The Betrayal Of Israel Begins...
March 25, 2009
Perspicacious individuals would all agree that how we treat our only ally in the Middle East (Israel), speaks volumes concerning our position in the War on Terror. And this being true, the treatment of the Israeli Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Gabi Ashkenazi on his recent visit to DC, unequivocally says that the current administration is putting our national security at peril...
To say that Lt. Gen. Ashkenazi was given the cold shoulder would be kind. Not one member of the Obama administration...not even his counterpart, Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff...would meet with the General.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't this the President who was going to change our image in the world? I guess you could consider betrayal a change. He has succeeded in 'changing' how many of our allies view us...including, England, Poland, Czech Republic, the new governments in Afghanistan and Iraq...and now our greatest ally in the region: Israel.
Just in time for opening day...O is batting a thousand...
Israel is the only country that truly comprehends the War on Terror...they have been fighting it since 1948. Lest we forget...Israel killed the man responsible for the murder of 241 of our Marines in Beirut in 1983 (Imad Mugniyah). Something no Arab country would have ever done for us.
Do we really want to betray friends like this?
OK, Reconcile That
March 24, 2009
"My job is to communicate to the American people that the Muslim world is filled with extraordinary people who simply want to live their lives and see their children live better lives. My job to the Muslim world is to communicate that the Americans are not your enemy."
-- Barack Obama in Jan. 2009 on al-Arabiya
A group of 35 Saudi clerics recently insisted that the kingdom's new information minister ban women from appearing on TV or in newspapers and magazines...and that cleric Abdel Aziz Khoja, who was appointed by King Abdullah on Feb. 14, ban the playing of music and music shows on TV.
Hmmm...well, according to Obama's first interview on al-Arabiya in January, the collective Muslim World simply wants to live its lives and "see their children live better lives." Really? Does that include women not being seen and music not being heard?
Oh so THAT'S what progressive means...
Let's briefly review simply living a Muslim life for women (a partial list):
1. Muslim women have to wear the veil (Hijab).
2. Islam encourages wife beating (women are viewed as chattel).
3. The woman inherits half what a man inherits.
4. The woman's testimony is equal only to half of the man's testimony.
5. Men's status is higher than that of the women.
6. Women, not men, are stoned to death for Adultery.
Bottom line...we have freedom and equality for women and Islam...'simply' doesn't.
OK, Prez...reconcile that!
If we take the Saudi kingdom alone, we betray our values by conducting any semblance of civility with these frauds, precisely because women are treated as property...and not treasured property, at that.
And this gibberish about the Muslim world being "filled with extraordinary people" is stunningly misogynistic. O's profound desire to join hands with these Wahhabi-dispersing fiends, should be disturbing at least...and terrifying at best.
These differences cannot be reconciled by unctuous words or a Cheshire Cat smile. O doesn't get that...do we?
We shall see...
Obama To Hamas: Here's A Big $900M Wet One
March 19, 2009
How's your wallet looking these days? A little thin? Well, it's about to get thinner, thanks to our Socialist-In-Chief...and he's doing it via one Thugocracy to another...
On his adventures through Sherwood Forrest, O has sent Sec. of State Clinton to announce that $900 million of our hard-earned dough (not his) will be gifted to the PA to aid and rebuild Gaza.
Is that to rebuild missile silos or arms-smuggling tunnels?
And just how is O doing this? Why through the most unreliable, corrupt organization on our turf: The UN. That's right, O is trusting the UN (from the oil-for-food debacle) with our money and having them hand it over to the PA...which is temporarily run by Arafat's creation Fatah (but the majority elected party is another terrorist group, Hamas).
Sheer genius and benevolence.
Now, even though the word, 'schmuck' would normally come to mind here...I am aware that on the campaign trail, O said he thought Hamas had "legitimate claims" against Israel. "Legitimate claims?"
That is beyond whacked...
This allocation of our tax dollars is not the feckless act of an ignoramus, but the calculated act of an ideologue...who is driven by a lifelong, misguided agenda.
A betrayal of our republic and of our only friends in the Middle East could not be more evident. O's actions are tantamount to a big wet one being planted on the mouth of the sworn enemies of freedom (let's not forget that Fatah [who temporarily leads the PA] joined other terrorist groups to declare war on the US a few years ago).
Caveat to O and his minions: If you're going to plant a smooch on a party, better make sure it doesn't blow up in your face.
Giving Iran WMD To Develop WMD
March 16, 2009
Prerequisites and requisites are necessary for certain jobs for good reason. If you were having major surgery, you'd want to know that your surgeon has been to medical school, done an internship...and had some time performing operations. It surely would not be a comfort to learn your surgeon was fresh out of law school...the results of such a surgery, with a neophyte holding the scalpel, could be fatal...
The above example is a microcosm of our national situation...
We now have a Trainee-In-Chief with zilch experience as an executive...in any regard. That doesn't give me 'a thrill up my leg'...but a cold chill down my spine...especially concerning foreign affairs.
O is now making deals with Vladimir 'George of the Jungle' Putin to dissuade Iran not to build a nuke. IRAN...the same country for which Russia has been hands-on in building them a nuclear facility.
Still missing that last fry in your happy meal, O?
And our Community Organizer-In-Chief is revealing a great want in historical knowledge concerning the former USSR, the KGB...and the deadly gravity of Iran's goal of destroying the 'little Satan' (Israel) and the 'Great Satan' (US) by any means possible...and in so doing, stirring up chaos upon the earth to usher in the 12th Mahdi.
Oops, guess he missed that lesson...must have been simply 'present' for the session...
That's not all the Messiah-In-Chief is doing...he's also betraying our allies in the region namely: Poland and the Czech Republic, who literally put their lives on the line to agree with us to put missile defense systems in their respective countries. You see...he's making deals with Vlady that if Putin indeed talks Ahmadinejad into stopping his naughty nuke behavior, we will not comply with the agreement we made with our allies.
Hey, O...better sharpen that knife...you might have missed a few backs on your 'love' journey out of the starting gate...but it's doubtful...
Russia and Iran engaging in 'talks' would give Iran the perfect cover to continue its goal of having a nuclear weapon sooner, rather than later.
We are now complicit in helping Iran develop WMD (weapons of mass distraction) in order to continue their WMD development...and spread a fungus cloud over the only democracy in the Middle East. And once they have accomplished this, be sure it will be followed up by an attempt on our shores...and this type of fungus can't be sautéed with onions.
OK...you 52% of voters that put this Einstein in office...feel safer? I 'hope' you have a 'change' of underwear on hand when Iran delivers on its promises...you'll need it...
Has The Pope Given Up History For Lent?
March 12, 2009
It's the Lenten season when many, in preparation for Easter, give up something normally enjoyed as a reminder of the ultimate sacrifice made for salvation. But with the recent revealed travel agenda for the Pope...one must wonder what he has given up for lent...
Pope Benedict XVI verified on Sunday that he is coming to Israel in May and will definitely visit the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. But, unlike Pope John Paul II, who visited the Temple Mount but did not enter the al-Aksa, Benedict will visit the mosque.
In the face of history...is this wise?
Here are a couple of facts that might be considered before the Papal visit:
Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini, who reigned out of the Al Aqsa Mosque...helped Hitler formulate the 'Final Solution'.
Al-Husseini also spread the rumor that the Jews were going to attack the Al Aksa mosque, which started the riots that killed hundreds of innocent Jews.
Al Aqsa has a caustic history concerning the treatment of Jews. Visiting Yad Vashem and al Aqsa on the same trip seems to be sending the wrong message. Has the Pope decided to send a hypocritical message for Easter...let's reverence the innocent butchered...and make nice with the followers of the ones who held the cleaver?
If you ask me, that just ain't Kosher.
In order to maintain his integrity, the Pope would have to claim he gave up historical truth for lent...and that's just not worth the sacrifice...
Swamps Of Ignorance Swallow Young Brits
March 10, 2009
How would you answer the following question:
Q. Auschwitz is:
a. A type of beer.
b. A religious festival.
c. A type of bread.
d. A Nazi extermination camp.
If you were one of 1,000 British pupils aged 11-16 in secondary school...you would have guessed a, b, or c...but not d.
According to the London Jewish Cultural Centre, who commissioned the survey:
10% were not sure what it was
8% thought it was a country bordering Germany
2% thought it was a beer
2% said it was a religious festival and a further
1% said it was a type of bread
So, there are about 4.5 million children aged 11-16 in the UK, that would be synonymous to 90,000 kids wrongly identifying Auschwitz as a drink and 45,000 mistaking it as a food.
Hey...are they wearing party hats at that glue-sniffing bash?
What in the world are they shoveling into these kids craniums? Historical facts of an alternate universe?
Where most could identify Adolph Hitler from a photograph, those who couldn't, mistook Winston Churchill, Salvador Dali, and Albert Einstein as the fuehrer. Come on...what's the school uniform, a big red nose and exploding shoes? (Winston Churchill was the former Prime Minister of England, for Pete's sake! They must be acquiring their appreciation of Churchill from Obama.)
Precisely 1.3 million people were exterminated in that death camp during World War II...if that isn't critical enough to impart to the young...then the once great nation, and our greatest ally...has gone gravely awry.
God save the Queen? Better save the children...
Cowering Into Captivity
March 10, 2009
And the story goes...if you put a frog in a pot of boiling water it will jump right out. But, if you put a frog in a pot of lukewarm water and slowly turn it up until it starts to boil, the frog will happily remain in the pot until he is cooked.
This efficaciously illustrates how we can be incrementally destroyed by the ignorance of our environment, or the milieu to which we are allowing ourselves to yield.
In a post-9/11 world, having taken our cues from those who have neither moral courage nor strength of character...say, Europe for instance...it's worth taking a quick peak at how our cousins 'across the pond' and beyond, are standing for liberty:
Doctors and nurses in Scotland should refrain from eating in front of their Muslim patients and colleagues during the month of Ramadan. (You bad little infidels, tempting the righteous ones.)
Catholic Bishops in England want Islamic prayer rooms to be opened in Catholic Schools, plus facilities for the Islamic cleansing ritual, called 'Wudhu', which is carried out by Muslims before they pray.
A Nottingham primary school first cancels, then postpones till after the New Year their Christmas nativity performance because it was scheduled during the Muslim festival of Eid.
We are following our 'cousins' well...a brief look at our catalogue of kowtows:
Indiana International Airport decides to install footbaths for Muslim ritual cleansing, because Muslim cabbies demanded them.
Wayne, NJ kowtowed to the complaint of one Muslim parent and now allows Muslim prayer-time in school.
Louisiana decides to hold a four-day workshop designed to help them work better with Muslim and Arab families in the school system. (Wait, shouldn't they be trying to understand our culture?)
The University of Michigan at Dearborn is planning to build foot baths for Muslim students who wash their feet before prayer.
An elementary school in San Diego created an extra recess period for Muslim pupils to pray.
At George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., Muslim students using a "meditation space" laid out Muslim prayer rugs and separated men and women in accordance with their Islamic beliefs.
After 9/11, when Muslims took their cue from the 'gay' activists playbook and couched themselves as victims...we began to play the deadliest game of Simon Says this world has ever seen. Because Simon, in this case, is an ideology longing to rule the world by the sword...and guess which end we're on?
The more we continue to cower at the demands of Muslims, the closer we get to losing our precious freedoms and the nearer we get to captivity.
Those that gave their all to retain our freedoms, did not do so, in order for us to deal it away as Esau did his birthright for a bowl of stew.
We need to consider our actions soberly, at such a time as this. We were the nation that saved Europe from sure destruction and captivity to Nazism. Now our feckless trepidation is causing us to cower into a captivity...we may never escape.
For who will be left to rescue us?
Iran: The Little Regime That Could
March 5, 2009
We're all familiar with the classic children's story, The Little Engine That Could. The story of a long train that must be pulled over a high mountain. Various larger engines are asked to pull the train; for various reasons they refuse. The request is sent to a small engine, who agrees to try. The engine succeeds in pulling the train over the mountain while repeating its motto: "I-think-I-can".
Well...along comes a terrorist regime who, because of the politically-correct paralysis of many world leaders, they not only think-they-can develop a nuclear arsenal: They KNOW-they-can.
And Iran's Mad Mullahs are counting on this paralysis...they are building their arsenal upon the trepidation of, in particular, Obama and his insatiable desire to be loved and admired by the masses. He dare not say anything that might be considered pro-American or pro-democracy.
And, sadly...it's a solid foundation...
Example, the Revolutionary Guards Chief, Mohammad Ali Jafari (which, by the way, are considered a terrorist group), said, "Today, the Islamic Republic of Iran has missiles with the range of 2,000 km (1,250 miles), and based on that all Israeli land including that regime's nuclear facilities are in the range of our missile capabilities."
Jafari also believes that neither the US nor the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) "had the ability" to strike Iran. Hmmm...was that said under the influence of the Halal brand of crack? The two greatest militaries in the world did not have the ability to strike Iran? Right...
And this is a simple illustration of how 'the little regime that could' has been empowered by the likes of O and his ilk. How PC paralysis has become the fuel for the 'the little regime' and the mushroom cloud that it will produce.
I don't THINK-they-can...I know-they-WILL...
