UN: Witch-Hunt Trumps Aid


March 29, 2007


What started out over sixty years ago as an organization to fortify the standard of human dignity, has now become, according to Hillel Neuer, Director of UN Watch, a "human rights nightmare."


In the face of reports of worldwide torture, persecution, and violence against women, the UN's Human Rights Commission has responded with an astounding silence. But Neuer stated that, "This council has, after all, done something. It has enacted one resolution after another, condemning one single state: Israel. In eight pronouncements, and there will be three more this session, Hamas and Hizbullah have been granted impunity. The entire rest of the world; millions upon millions of victims, in 191 countries continue to go ignored."


With members including Cuba, China, Saudi Arabia and Egypt, it's like the inmates are running the asylum. These human rights offenders are blinded (by their guilt) to the horrors worldwide, and are busy condemning the tiny democracy [Israel] striving to exist among its enemies.


Kudos to Neuer for having the moxie to tell the truth. The anti-Semitism, that existed in members from the creation of this council, has now become the focus of this parasite on the East River.


The UN: Flying their brooms over Israel while the weak worldwide suffer.

The Bottom Line


March 28, 2008


We have reached an alarming episode in our nation's history. A period in which those who vigorously oppose illegal immigration are labeled  bigots, racists and xenophobes.


The truth is, those who contest an open borders policy are simply upholding the rule of law. Lest we forget, it is still unlawful for any person (irrespective of race, creed or color) to enter America without proper documentation.


Clearly, illegal immigration (when one strips away the liberal veneer and scrutinizes the facts) is not about skin hue, but about survival. A nation that fails to enforce the very laws designed to protect its borders will one day cease to exist. 


So, what's the bottom line: Those who oppose illegal immigration are not bigots, but concerned citizens upholding the rule of law.

Obscene Political Expediency


March 27, 2007


With the surge showing signs of progress, the 

Democrat Party has once again demonstrated their obscene political expediency.


Let us once again sift through their deceitful oratory (we support the troops) and tell the unvarnished truth: The Democrat Party wants us to lose the war in Iraq.


Why? Because (in their diminutive minds) it will guarantee them a victory in 2008. And, after all, hasn't the Democrat Party placed politics ahead of our national security, as well as our troops in the past?


So, whether it's an attempt to micromanage the war (via a supplemental bill), or through vitriolic

speeches that provide aid and comfort to the enemy--the Democrat Party will do all it can to make certain that America loses the war. 


Obscene political expediency.

Gaza: Proof Two-State Solution Doesn't Work


March 26, 2007


Last week, President Bush remained unflappable concerning a two-state solution in the Middle East conflict. He commented that, 


"Peace in the Middle East is a priority for this administration. [Rice is] going to continue our efforts to involve all parties, the Palestinians [sic], the Israelis, the Arabs, to work for a solution that will lead to peace, and that is a Palestinian state living side by side with Israel in peace and security." 


But, in the face of the facts on the ground, this statement is absurd.


There is actually a 'palestinian' state already: The Gaza Strip. The PA has complete control over the area. So let's take a look at a microcosm of a larger 'palestinian' state...

Not to mention the fact that Hamas, who was voted in as the majority by the 'palestinian' people, refuses to recognize Israel's existence.


So, upon what evidence, that the world cannot already see for itself, is the president basing his position? 


Wishes and dreams are pleasant, but reality is what we must deal with concerning the Middle East. Positions must be based upon truth and facts. We deal in the real, not the surreal. The hundreds upon hundreds of dead innocent Israelis is real, and will not change when more land is stolen from Israel and given to its enemies.


Gaza is the first trial of this failed two-state experiment. So, for all those supporting this idealistic view, it's time to wake up and deal with the hatred at hand...because the blood of innocent Israelis is too precious to waste on dangerous dreams.

Parent Of Oslo Still At It


March 22, 2007


Norway, the country with the dubious distinction of being the facilitator of the Oslo Accords, is at it again...


Raymond Johansen, the deputy foreign minister of this puny, Muslim-appeasing country, was sent to meet with a Hamas member of the “new” PA gov't. You know, the part of the government that recently stated, "There isn't a chance any Hamas leader will ever recognize Israel. We will not betray our values... We will leave this world as martyrs without recognizing Israel."


In the 1990's, Norway made possible, meetings that led to the signing of the Oslo Accords which directly produced the deaths of hundreds upon hundreds of innocent Israeli men, women and children.


I think it's time for Israel to pray the prayer that the English used to pray, "Deliver us, oh G-d, from the rage of the Vikings."


These descendants of barbaric seamen have already left their bloody footprint in the Middle East. I think Munch's "Scream" truly represents the reaction of the prospect of Norway again entering the 'peace' process.


I think I speak for Zionists everywhere when I say: Mr. Johansen, just put on your Gjermundbu helm (Viking Helmet) and go home.

The Moviegoer Gets 'The Ultimate Gift'

March 21, 2007


Yes, it's true...thanks to distributors like Fox Faith/20th Century Fox...moviegoers can still be treated with respect and enjoy entertainment again...

If you haven't seen it, you must...'The Ultimate Gift', now playing in theaters, is one of those few films with a solid, moral message...and add to that laughs, tears and an A-list of actors including James Garner, Brian Dennehy, Bill Cobbs & Lee Meriwether...and new gems Drew Fuller as Jason and Abigail Breslin as Emily. 

It's the story of a spoiled brat grandkid who fell through the cracks of discipline and self-control through the years, and upon his grandfather's death, is given a series of gifts, each more priceless than the last...all culminating in the ultimate gift. The transformation of Jason, played by Drew Fuller, is transforming for the audience...as it even prompts some self-reflection.

Based on the Jim Stovall novel, this story illuminates the gift of love...and reminds us the only way to keep it, is to give it away.

The movie contains a strong moral message, no foul language, violence or nudity. Imagine, they can still respect the audience and make money. Let's hope it catches on...

'The Ultimate Gift'...it's a keeper!

The Only Way To Tame Tehran


March 20, 2007


The only way to tame Tehran is to score a decided military victory in Iraq. Any thing less would only serve as an impetus for their nuclear ambitions. 


Why? Because, as history dictates, despotic

regimes respect military power. They genuflect

at the first sign of shock and awe, but view

such schemes as "redeployment" as pathological weaknesses. 


So, Democrats (who are timorous of Tehran's nuclear ambitions) should support the surge. In

fact, they should demand nothing less than total victory in Mesopotamia.


It's the only way to tame Tehran.

America's Identity Crisis


March 19, 2007


Can you imagine an entire country having an identity crisis? Having been intentionally separated from it's heritage? Well, America is currently experiencing such a crisis, and if not addressed, will bring it to ruin.


Let's take a cursory look at the facts...


The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language defines identity crisis as follows:


  identity crisis - n.
1. A psychosocial state or condition of disorientation and role confusion occurring especially in adolescents as a result of conflicting internal and external experiences, pressures, and expectations and often producing acute anxiety.
2. An analogous state of confusion occurring in a social structure, such as an institution or a corporation.


Due to historical revisionists and left-wing propagandists, our nation's Judeo-Christian heritage has been mercilessly eviscerated. Thus creating a state of confusion with horrific results. From abortion on demand to American politicos who claim Islam played a critical role in our country's nascent stages--the manifestations are nothing short of chilling.


These are the fallouts when a great nation is separated from its heritage. It suffers a profound identity crisis that, if not halted and reversed, will soon lead to a new national motto: In Man We Trust.

Olmert: Clueless Or Convert


March 15, 2007


Ever since Olmert ordered the IDF out of Gaza and announced a ceasefire agreement with the 'palestinians', Israel has seen non-stop bombardment from Gaza...and these attacks on civilians have not been responded to. 


Now, that surely instills a sense of national security in Israelis...


According to the Jerusalem Post, the 'palestinians' decided upon the rules and Olmert has followed obediently. Here's how it goes...'palestinians' attack Israel, prepare for war and Israel helps them by handing them money, bargaining with them and taking no steps to defend itself or its citizens.


Hey...with all due respect...this guy has got to go. It's hard to believe he holds a B.A. and LL.B. degrees in Psychology and a Law degree from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.


The way Olmert is obeying the PA makes one wonder whether he is a descendent of Arabs. You would be challenged to find jihadists who follow and support the 'palestinian' cause as well as he does.


This PM is either clueless or a convert...either way, I think it's time for new elections.


Note: The land of Israel does not belong to Mr. Olmert. It belongs to G-d. And when you continue to give away what does not belong to you, be sure, eventually, the Owner will deal with you.

What's Jordan Up To?


March 14, 2007


Right under the radar, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has been buying up the land surrounding the Temple Mount. Not openly, but surreptitiously through minute companies, so their connection is veiled.


So what are our 'friends' up to?


Curiously, the new manager of the Waqf (the Islamic custodians of the Temple Mount), Sheikh Azzam Khateeb, is believed to be devoted to the Jordanian monarchy.


The Temple Mount was liberated from Jordan by Israel in 1967, a fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. 


Not sure what's transpiring, but it is well known that the Monarchy loathes the 'palestinians' and would do whatever it could to prevent them from permanently settling in Jordan (300,000 Palestinians are detained in "refugee camps" in Jordan). 


And helping to deny the Jews, and their G-d, any place in the Holy Land would be a feather in their Ghutra (men's Islamic headdress). 


What's Jordan up to? Something to seriously consider...

The Virulence Of Our Time


March 13, 2007


Without question, America's greatness is derived from her immutable Judeo-Christian foundation.

A foundation that explicitly proclaims that "all

Men are created equal."


Yet, due to lethal political correctness--we are allowing ourselves to be deluded. Yes, deluded to such an extreme point that even toxic ideologies and religions are considered creeds of

"peace" and "tolerance." 


While these ideologies and religions have histories that are verifiably anti-Semitic, anti-Christian, misogynistic and bloodthirsty,

we are told--ad nauseum, from educrats to politicians--that to state the aforementioned is nothing short of untainted bigotry. 


So, how should we counter such drivel?


By standing steadfastly on our Judeo-Christian foundation, while loudly denouncing the virulence of our time: Political correctness.

Fred Thompson: The Conservative's Pick


March 12, 2007


With early entries for the top position in the free world for 2008, the base of the Republican party have yet to find someone they can truly get behind, without compromising their beliefs. But that may be about to change...


Sunday, on FoxNews Sunday with Chris Wallace, when asked if he would consider running for the presidency, former Senator Fred Thompson said he would not rule the possibility out.


I can hear the cheers from the Republican base...


Sen. Thompson is the consummate conservative. With all due respect to his own attributes, a second Ronald Reagan. He is not only unabashedly pro-life, but also believes that Roe v. Wade is explicitly unconstitutional. And, as a result--should be overturned.


Moreover, Thompson stridently deems that all

law abiding Americans have the right to bear arms. And, on the issue of illegal immigration, favors stringent border enforcement. 


So, here's hoping (and praying) that the consummate conservative enters the race. 


America needs Fred Thompson.

German/Catholic Anti-Semitic Root Still Alive


March 8, 2007


Now, most would think, following the barbaric and compliant behavior of both the German public and the Catholic Church during the Nazi reign, that anyone from either group would refrain from attacking Jews or the Jewish State...well think again...


Merely hours after making an historic visit to Jerusalem's Yad Vashem museum, a group of German bishops toured the Palestinian Authority and audaciously said Israel was behaving like Nazis.


Will impudence never cease...


While in Israel, the bishops homogeneously made moderate and impartial statements, but once in the PA controlled areas, they provided the accompanying German media with a surplus of harsh assertions against the Jewish State.


As he passed through one of the checkpoints into East Jerusalem, the Archbishop of Cologne, Cardinal Joachim Meisner, told the media: "This is something that is done to animals, not people." He also mentioned that the fence reminded him of the Berlin Wall and that he did not believe he would see such a thing again in his lifetime.


Well, the Cardinal, coming from a country with the record of the most heinous treatment of human beings in recent history, should bite his tongue when commenting on "something that is done to animals." And having just come from Yad Vashem, where an unequivocal record stands of his ancestor's handiwork, he must have taken leave of his senses to criticize the Israelis.


Let's educate the Cardinal a bit on the security fence versus the Berlin Wall. The 'fence' is to keep terrorists out of Israel. The 'wall' was to keep those, longing for freedom, imprisoned.


nazipriests.jpg (34635 bytes)And let us not forget the Catholics Church's part in the Nazi reign of terror on the Jews. I guess that one slipped the Cardinal's mind.


Cardinal Meisner needs to not merely go to confession for his words, but to Jews everywhere, he must ask their forgiveness for such egregious comments...considering his ancestry.  


It's clear that the root of anti-Semitism is still alive and well in the Catholic Church...and worse, in Germany. It's about time these two entities, concerning the Jewish people, just shut up and fade away. The record shows they've already said and spread enough poison for the rest of human history.

Not Fit To Be Commander-In-Chief


March 7, 2007


Hillary Clinton's attempt to abandon the Iraq War is egregiously pathetic. It not only demonstrates a profound lack of character, but also exhibits

a propensity to shred the truth.


And just what is the truth? That Sen. Clinton, after reviewing the very same intel on Iraq that was handed to President Bush--voted for the war.


In fact, the intel had such an impact on Clinton,

it provoked her to say the following: "It would be naive to the point of grave danger not to believe

that, left to his own devices, Saddam Hussein will provoke, misjudge or stumble into a future, more dangerous confrontation with the civilized 



But (due to political pressure from the Cindy Sheehan wing of her party)--the Senator from New York is attempting to distance herself from

her hawkish past. 


And, in doing so--has confirmed that she is not fit to be commander-in-chief.

That Would Take Character


March 6, 2007


Though some pundits are loath to admit it: The blistering oratory, emanating from anti-surge politicos--only serves to bolster the enemy. 


With the surge underway (and showing some signs of progress) now is not the time to give rhetorical aid and comfort to our foes in Iraq.


Instead, anti-surge politicos should simply zip-it, and give the surge a chance. But, that would take a modicum of character.


To be honest, the anti-surgers are acting out of pure political expediency [treachery]. They know by losing in Iraq, they will stand a better chance of winning back the White House in 2008. 


That aside, it would be demonstrably patriotic if (instead of strengthening the enemy) they would actively support the surge. 


But, as I mentioned--that would take character.

Ellison Wrong On Jefferson


March 5, 2007


The first Muslim elected to the US Congress has it wrong. At his swearing in ceremony, he chose to lay his hand on the Koran that Thomas Jefferson owned. He called Jefferson "a visionary" who believed wisdom could be gathered from many sources.


But Mr. Ellison (aka Keith X Ellison, Keith Ellison-Muhammed and Keith Hakim) was clearly being disingenuous. He gave the listeners the impression that Thomas Jefferson was an admirer of Islam. This could not be farther from the truth.


Jefferson owned a Koran to discover more about an enemy of the free world: Muslim pirates. 


For almost ten centuries, Muslim pirate slavers enslaved millions of Africans and ten of thousands of Europeans and Americans in the Islamic 'Barbary' states. These barbaric Muslim pirates sailed the African and Mediterranean shores looting villages and capturing slaves. They would murder older men and woman and save the young for the slave trade.


Concerning Tripoli's envoy to London, Ambassador Sidi Haji Abdrahaman, when asked by what right he extorted money and took slaves in the violent way in which they did, Jefferson told the US Congress, "The ambassador answered us that [the right] was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners, and that every Mussulman who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise."


Gee, sounds just like the same 'hijacked' religion that keeps slaughtering innocents today! And that's because it is...


Mr. Ellison is just putting lipstick on a pig for the consumption of the historically ignorant of our nation. 


Well, we're not buying this drek. 


Islam is the same today as it was back in Jefferson's day, and as it was in the day of its vicious founder. The true followers are the ones to fear. 


Is Mr. Ellison one of them? Well, he was wrong on Jefferson, and he has a past with the Nation of Islam and CAIR...so...he could be.

It Shouldn't Be An Issue, But It Is


March 1, 2007


At this point in the Mideast conflict, Israel's right to exist shouldn't be an issue, but unbelievably, it is.


The newly united (against Israel) PA government of Hamas and Fatah have made it clear that at least the Hamas majority has no intention of agreeing to Israel's right to exist. But make no mistake...Fatah is on board with its brothers.


And just in case these hatemongers should meet an untimely death (we could only hope), a recent poll of 'Palestinian' children reveals that these thugs have passed their disdain for the Jewish State on to their young. Adolescents ages 18-25, who have been influenced the greatest by PA education, polled between 84% - 93% denying Israel's right to exist. And this figure is higher than the overall population number of 75% who deny Israel's right to exist. 


The PA's malevolent campaign denying Israel's right to exist is prevalent throughout PA society and media. This has remained, unchanged and un-condemned for years. And without this basic agreement of Israel's rights...there is no foundation for anything but the terror that has unceasingly besieged innocent Israelis.


To all those consistently pressuring Israel to negotiate with their enemies: Get this straight...there can be no building without a foundation...and Israel's right to exist IS that foundation.
