The PA: Still Erasing Israel
November 29, 2007
If one party is serious about making peace with its neighbor, would they continually erase them from their maps?
Well, that's exactly what the PA continues to do on PA TV...and this, one day after the Annapolis 'peace' conference.
So, what was actually accomplished in MD? Bupkis!
If the President would have read his mail, he would have saved the American tax payers wads of cash. Why? Because in his mailbox was a letter...as we mentioned on Nov. 21st, a unanimous decision came down on Nov. 17th, by The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, to reject Israel's demand that the Palestinians recognize it as a "Jewish State", as a piece of the peace negotiations, and a formal letter was sent to the 'Quartet'...of which the president is a leader.
Evidence that the old campaign was correct: 'Reading is fundamental'.
This gathering of disingenuous Arab despots was truly an exercise in futility.
So here's some sage advise for the next 'peace' summit: At the very least, make sure both parties believe the other exists.
Mr. Bush: 'Yea' Or 'Nay'?
November 28, 2007
According to PA President Abbas, in a private meeting ahead of the Annapolis conference, Bush promised the PA a palestinian state before he leaves office. Which would include the West Bank, eastern sections of Jerusalem, including the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.
Now, President Bush insists he does not intend to negotiate personally the two-state peace he has pronounced as his vision. "The United States cannot impose our vision," the president claims.
In order to keep the first statement, he must violate the second. Well, which is it?
Certainly the aggressive words of the Sec. of State leading up to the conference emanated from the president. The administration has strong-armed Israel to the negotiating table with its enemies, requiring much from the Jewish Sate, but nothing from the 'palestinians'. All with the intention of forcing Israel into surrendering more of their land for a non-existent peace. (Not to mention creating a legacy for the President and Sec. Rice.)
Mr. Bush, with all due respect...double speaking to the public, when your actions speak volumes of your true intentions, is folly. As a Christian, it would be best to heed Matthew 5:37: "But let your communication be, Yea, yea; Nay, nay: for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil."
Don't allow your integrity to be destroyed in order to please the PA...a group of people who have not kept their word in all of their existence...for history surely attests, that's a gamble you will lose.
Israel: Are We Their Friend Or Foe?
November 26, 2007
Knowing our history with our friends Israel, the question should never cross our minds: Are we friend or foe of the Jewish State?
Well, considering the most recent behavior of our leadership, the answer would clearly be foe.
The so-called 'peace' conference slated for November 27, 2007 (almost 60 years to the day after the vote on UN Resolution 181) in Annapolis, MD, will be the site of a calamity. Our leadership will attempt to strong-arm tiny Israel into giving up more of their land (and some strategic to their national security) to the very monsters who have been slaughtering their civilians since the rebirth of Israel in 1948.
One must ask: Are these the actions of a friend?
The land we have already pressured Israel into giving up to the 'palestinians' has been turned into a massive weapons depot aimed at innocent Israelis, with whom they ('palestinians') supposedly want to 'make nice'. The land surrender has resulted in more violence, not less. With that in mind, why are we pressuring Israel to give up even more land for this illusive peace? Isn't this illogical, at best?
There can be no excuse for our egregious behavior. And this toward those whom a majority of the American people support and defend. Our leadership is now acting on its own and does not reflect or represent the true position of America.
Annapolis will be the site of a calamity. One in which Israel's enemies will gather to dismember the tiny democracy...while we hold the Jewish State to the carving table.
Friend of foe? You don't have to be a rocket scientist for this one.

Thanksgiving Proclamation Issued in 1789
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA:
Plaque on the right side of
Federal Hall National Memorial, NYC
"Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me 'to recommend
to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.'
"Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks — for his kind care and protection of the People of this country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his providence, which we experienced in the course and conclusion of the late war — for the great degree of tranquility, union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted, for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
"And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions — to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually — to render our national government a blessing to all the People, by constantly being a government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed — to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness unto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord — To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and Us — and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
"Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
Jewish State? What Jewish State?
November 21, 2007
Prior to the upcoming 'peace' conference in Annapolis, Israel Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced that he expects the Palestinian Authority (PA) to finally acknowledge Israel's existence as a Jewish State.
Well, his great expectations are now dashed (as if they ever had a chance in Sheol)...
A unanimous decision came down on Nov. 17th, by The Higher Arab Monitoring Committee, to reject Israel's demand that the Palestinians recognize it as a "Jewish State", as a piece of the peace negotiations. The PA has also announced that they reject the Israeli demand.
In other words, "Jewish State? What Jewish State?"
committee's meeting took place in Nazareth after the Hadash and the Israeli
Communist parties insisted that an official stance against the Israeli
demand be taken preceding the Annapolis conference. A formal letter on the issue is expected to be dispatched to the Israeli government, the Quartet,
the Arab League and other related parties.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this negate a major element of this 'peace' conference, namely, Israel? The PA is demanding land from a country it does not believe exists? It wants recognition, but refuses to do the same for the country that has given them all but the kitchen sink in negotiations?
I believe this conference has two underlying purposes: 1) To give President Bush and Sec. Rice a gold star (and an attempted legacy) for solving the Mideast problem. 2) To give the PA another excuse for a third intifada against innocent Jews.
What our leaders should unequivocally state to the PA, and their ilk, is this bottom line: If the Jewish State doesn't exist, neither do you. Get it. Got it. Good.
Fooling The Feds: Terrorists New Pastime
November 16, 2007
America's pastimes are often recognized as baseball, football...and more recently, Dancing with the Stars. But Muslim terrorists have a more pernicious pastime...Fooling the Feds...and it's not a game...
While Aunt Fanny and Uncle Mel are being strip-searched at airports around the nation, Hezbollah loyalists are busy collecting top secret intel from the FBI computer system...illegal Muslim immigrants with mid-level posts with the CIA.
Sound surreal? It's not...
Nada Nadim Prouty, an illegal Lebanese woman who overstayed her visa, pled guilty to conspiracy charges (among myriad other charges) just a week after quitting her CIA position. She spent time searching FBI computers to gather info on what we know about Hezbollah activities.
Now, if the CIA and FBI are attempting to reinvent themselves in the eyes of the American public, I think they need to change PR firms. The once brilliant agencies are looking as though they are replete with dunderheads.
How much of a background check is necessary to find out that someone overstayed their visa? If this is a monumental feat, we're doomed.
How many more Prouty's are lurking around our intel? Was the current disease of political correctness (PC), that has infected our federal gov't, the reason Ms. Prouty was not discovered before she did us harm?
This is serious stuff. It's time to drop the PC facade, stop frisking Aunt Fanny and again focus on criminal profiling...the technique that has always served law enforcement well.
Because if we don't...our pastime may become regular visits to the city morgue.
Coddling The Enemy Of Our Friends
November 14, 2007
Hezbollah, the terrorists who killed our Marines in 1983 as they slept, have their headquarters in Damascus, Syria. They are salivating at the thought of stealing the Golan Heights from Israel in order to get the Jewish State in their crosshairs...and guess who's helping them in their endeavor? We are...
It's been reported by DEBKAfile that US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has extended an offer of time on the conference floor at the Annapolis summit to the Syrian delegate, in order to allow him to press his case for Israel to return the Golan which Syria lost in the 1967 War. The Golan matter will even be integrated in the closing document.
What the....? Is there a gas leak in the State Dept.?
These bloodthirsty murderers in sheep's clothing should not be respected and honored, but condemned. If not for our friends Israel, at least in the memory of our fallen Marines...and out of respect for their families.
Shame on Sec. Rice and on President Bush for even entertaining this idea, no less offering it to these villains.
Here's praying for a modicum of lucidity to dawn upon our leaders...and a cancelled invite to Hezbollah's homies.
This Arrow Will Get Its Target
November 13, 2007
Good news for Israel, bad news for the Muslim world...
On Thursday, the US Congress approved $155.5 million for production and development of Israel missile defense programs. In particular, the Arrow anti-ballistic missile system.
The Arrow funding includes $37 million for US-Israel co-production of the Arrow long-range missile interceptor (can detect and track incoming missiles as far way as 500 km or 310.7 mi) and $61 million for further development, as well as another $37 million for the David's Sling project, meant to intercept enemy missiles with a range of between 70 and 280 km (174 mi).
Israel unveiled the Iron Dome project in 2006, which is intended to defend against rockets and missiles with a range of up to 40 km (25 mi). The project was designed on the heels of the war in Lebanon, in which Hizbullah launched 4,500 rockets into the Jewish state.
So, if the Muslim world is paying attention (especially Iran and the Twelver's*)...the US is still with Israel...so take heed: This arrow will get its target.
*Twelver's are extremist Mohammedans that believe if the world is pushed into a little chaos, the lost hidden Imam of the past will return in the present as the 'Mahdi' and will bring global Mohammedanism and defeat the enemies of Allah, in particular, Jews & Christians.
Israel: The UN's Scapegoat
November 8, 2007
"The new human rights council was delivered by some who thought they were giving birth to a new baby, but they have given birth to a horrendous monster."
Israeli UN Ambassador
This past Tuesday, Ambassador Gillerman denounced the UN Human Rights Council for failing to address human rights violations worldwide, and for unjustly singling out Israel. (And of course, the incidents that have been condemned by the Council were when Israel was responding to attacks on their unarmed civilians.)
This heinous world body continually disparages Israel...even after Gillerman was introduced to speak, a fire alarm forced the committee to evacuate to a shelter, hindering his speech. Not a coincidence, but rather another example of disrespecting the Jewish State.
Gillerman stated that the Human Rights Council was responsible for a "ritualistic and virulent campaign" against Israel. And this is evidenced by hundreds of UN Resolutions passed against Israel and yet not a one condemning the PA attacks on innocent Israeli civilians (which continues as you read this).
Gillerman, correct again, when he pointed out that the council's membership included countries whose human rights records fell "markedly below" the standards of the international community, and "who cannot genuinely serve as a beacon for human rights when their respective performances are so dismal and poor."
Israel is unequivocally the UN's scapegoat. They [UN] appear to spend their time focusing on and blaming the tiny democracy, which stands in the midst of huge Islamic fiefdoms (immersed in Sharia law and misogyny). The PA's murderous activities are ignored. Only when tiny Israel attempts to protect itself, does the 'beast on the east river' roar.
US stands with its ally...let's pray others in the international body will
wake up to this injustice...and remedy it.
Anti-Semitism Infecting More Americans?
November 5, 2007
The last bastion of safety for the Jew outside Israel is slowing turning sour. Are America's arms still open to the Jews?
A recent survey done shows that 31% of Americans believe Jews are more loyal to Israel than America, and more than 25% of the American people believe Jews were responsible for the death of Christ. 'The 2007 Survey of American Attitudes Towards Jews in America', a countrywide phone survey of 2,000 American adults from October 6 through October 19, found that 15% of Americans, or virtually 35 million adults, maintain views about Jews that are "unquestionably anti-Semitic."
It appears that the major, and world, media are accomplishing their job. The negative (and biased) reporting done on a daily basis when the Jewish State responds to terrorist attacks, combined with the intentional blindness to the murderous attempts and acts of the PA...are producing an environment conducive to another Holocaust.
It's time for American supporters of Israel (and the Jewish people) to rise up and counter every and all lies and distortions regarding Israel. The tide can still turn if we act now.
For those who have ears to hear, Wagner's music is again wafting through the air...are we listening?
Let's hope so...
