Jew-Free Buses, Why The Fuss?


March 22, 2013


"Hatred is the madness of the heart." ~Lord Byron


Few of us in the US comprehend the perilous milieu that the tiny State of Israel must endure each day...since its rebirth in 1948. Surrounded on all sides by less than cordial neighbors, many who strive to push the inhabitants of the Jewish State, into the sea.


The numerous terrorist groups that have sprung up since 1948, have all but tag-teamed in a interminable string of terror attacks upon Jewish civilians in an apparent show of 'love' for their neighbors.


Recently, the Israeli government, via the Transportation Ministry, began operating designated lines for Palestinians in the West Bank. These buses would be for 'Palestinian' passengers ONLY. 


So, why would Israel make such a decision? Well, it could be that from 1995-2012, there have been 40 bus bombings by 'Palestinians' resulting in thousands of injuries and 435 fatalities of innocent Jewish men, women and children civilians.


That's 435 innocent Jewish civilians on buses containing 'Palestinians'. I'd say that's a very good reason to keep certain buses restricted to 'Palestinians'.


And yes, of course, the cries of racism began from the Palestinian Authority (PA). Interesting...because the PA, comprised of Hamas and Fatah...two terror groups...have made it unequivocal that they want NO Jews in PA-owned land. Abbas said, in 2010, "I will never allow a single Israeli to live among us on Palestinian land." In Nazi Germany it was known as Judenrein (free of Jews).


Question: Since the PA has made it clear that they do not want Jews in the land they stole from Israel, what's the problem with buses that meet their design? Shouldn't they be pleased? So, why the fuss?


Well, you see...if there are no Jews on the buses, they have no reason to blow them up! When you remove the target, you remove their life's goal.


This move by the Israeli government is one of national security. It's a move to prevent more crimes against humanity committed by 'Palestinians', and should be applauded by all who care about peace.


The buses were a move for the cause of peace. And isn't that what the 'Palestinians' keep saying they want...or is it?


Shalom through strength...

Will Pope Francis Persuade Argentina To Repent?


March 20, 2013


There is an unequivocal difference between an apology and repentance. The dictionary states that the word repent means to feel such sorrow for sin or fault as to be disposed to change one's life for the better; be penitent. While apology means a defense, excuse, or justification in speech or writing, as for a cause or doctrine.


This distinction becomes more significant when dealing with one of the worst atrocities in world history...


The country that more Nazis and Nazi collaborators ran to after WWII was Argentina. There are several reasons that Nazis felt at home in Argentina:

  1. Between 1885-1915, approximately 100,000 Germans emigrated to Argentina. This made it easy for Nazis to assimilate after the war.  

  2. The president of Argentina during WWII, Juan Peron, was a known Nazi sympathizer (and so was his wife, Evita). 

  3. Argentina had (and still has) incredibly strict extradition laws which have always made it almost impossible to get a criminal extradited from that country, so there were few worries they would be apprehended for their crimes. Argentina became their new Fatherland.

But their crimes against humanity were a matter of history...


In 2000, President Fernando de la Rua issued an apology for his country's role in harboring Nazi war criminals following WWII. BUT, this apology was issued only AFTER a report was released earlier that year by a government commission showing that successive Argentine governments helped give refuge to 180 Nazi war criminals.


So the apology was politically expedient...NOT genuine nor sincere. And remember: An apology requires no response, while repentance requires an active response...a change in direction.


It's therefore no surprise that an overwhelming majority of Argentineans as of 2011, have a negative view of Jews. A study,  "Attitudes Towards Jews in Argentina," was commissioned by the Anti-Defamation League and the Delegation of Argentinean Jewish Associations, It revealed that about 80% of Argentineans hold anti-Semitic views. This shows that the problem is serious, systemic and still remains...something a mere political bandage that was offered by President de la Rua, could not resolve.


Perhaps it's time for the former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Pope Francis, to stand in the gap for Argentina. And ask the people to humble themselves, ask the world to forgive them for being willing accomplices, after the fact, to the Nazi regime and their crimes.


Until this occurs...their Catholicism is worth very little in the eyes of those that matter: The ones who suffered, their survivors and those carefully watching.

Paz a vosotros (peace be with you)...

What America Needs is a President Who Has Cojones

March 19, 2013


What America needs is a president who loves, honors and venerates his country. A leader who travels abroad — not for the purpose of apologizing to Islamic-dictators and thugs — but rather to remind them that they are nothing more than a gaggle of goat-bangers. 

What America needs is a president who lauds the hard working and industrious citizens of our nation who have made the American experiment such a great success. Yes, a man who unabashedly proclaims that “We the people” love our G-d, guns and Bibles.

What America needs is a president who holds the military in high esteem.

A steadfast and loyal Commander in Chief who’d rather take a bullet between the eyes than ever engage in “stolen valor,” or “spiking the ball” in order to advance his own political fortunes. Or, ever use the military as a social experiment in order to assuage the twisted and polluted minds of those who are ramming the homosexual lifestyle down our collective throats.

What America needs is a president who not only understands and embraces our free-market system — but also toils vigorously in order to advance it. A leader who stridently condemns any and all who attempt to recreate our economy in the image of Keynes, Marx, Carter, Pelosi, or any of the other bloodsucking demagogues of socialism. 

What America needs is a president who categorically rejects the religion of Political Correctness. A man who (at every turn) nixes popularity polls, political expediency and pop culture in order to speak the unvarnished and absolute truth (no matter who it offends).

What America needs is a president who has the courage to call our enemy (and its medieval doctrine) exactly what it is: A vile dung heap. A leader who — instead of genuflecting at the altar of liberal thought — loudly rejects such progressive and feckless mantras as “the religion of peace and tolerance.” 

Finally, it would serve the GOP well to also consider some of the aforementioned. Why? Because in 2016, America doesn’t need a milquetoast in the White House posing as a conservative.

Instead–what America needs is a president with cojones.

French Jew-Hate Rising: Vichy Wasn't Enough?


March 16, 2013


"Old beliefs die hard, even when they are demonstrably false." ~E. O. Wilson 


Everywhere that the ideology of Islam touches, suddenly begins a descent back to the Dark Ages...from where the ideology began. The period 1940-1944 is identified as the Dark Years in France. During these years, 650,000 civilian workers were deported to work in Germany; 75,000 Jews were deported to Auschwitz; 30,000 French civilians were shot as hostages or members of the Resistance, and another 60,000 were sent to concentration camps.


The milieu in that dark period for France was such that it permitted the willing takeover by the Nazi machine. The Vichy government, from where the Third Reich ruled, was an appeasement by the French...a fence sitting position for the French. It's been unequivocally proven that Islam had a hand in the Nazi Regime via the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, who helped Hitler craft 'the Final Solution'. Hitler's affinity for Islam had as one of its major elements: Jew hatred. The French surrender to the Nazis apparently was not too difficult a task, since there was an under-the-radar anti-Semitism present. 


Since the end of the war, little to nothing has been done to change the erroneous ambience that made the Nazis at home in Vichy. That sleeping giant of Jew-hatred is arising once again due to the influx of Muslim immigration to France.


Western Europe's home for the largest Jewish and Muslim populations is France. The Jewish Community Protection Service (SPCJ) reports a record rise of 58% in anti-Semitic incidents for 2012—a total of 614 compared to 389 in 2011. According to the Interior Ministry, 55% of racist violence in France in 2012 targeted Jews. One of those attacks was in Toulouse where Algerian-born Frenchmen Mohammed Merah murdered 7 at a Jewish school, including 3 children. Following that, 2 separate attacks on Jews in Marseille attempted to 'finish the job of Merah'. One attack was on a 17-year-old Jewish youth wearing a kipa. He was attacked by four male Muslim gang members who shouted "It’s Shabbat for you, long live Mohamed Merah! F*** the Jews…. Palestine will win!" 


Add to that, the Mayor of Bezons, a Paris suburb, honored Majdi al-Rimawi with honorary citizenship. Rimawi was sentenced to life in prison for his role in the 2001 murder of tourism minister Rehavam Zeevi. Mayor Dominique Lesparre claimed, in the city's newsletter, that honoring Rimawi was a "strong political act" related to the "colonization of the Palestinian people."


But, OOPSIE...he never mentioned the murder. Now, how does one make a mistake like that unless they are predisposed to indifference to the Jewish State...or, perhaps, to Jews in general.


This is not an ancillary issue but one that must be tackled at the heart of the French government. France's history has a loathsome aroma concerning its Jewish population. It's up to the leadership to stamp this out. And with a rising Muslim population, ignoring this will breed more Mohammed Merahs and beyond.


Here's a question: Wasn't Vichy enough? I think so...


Shalom through strength...

It's Islam, Stupid


March 13, 2013


The existence of Islamic terrorism (jihad) isn’t due to American foreign policy — but rather Koranic dogma. And the sooner we come to terms with this fact, the safer (and wiser) we will be.

Those among us who ardently cling to the belief that such actions as rendition, waterboarding, drone attacks, Gitmo and a close kinship with Israel have created jihad in the Muslim World (MW) have their heads way up their tailpipes. 

The great disdain and hatred displayed daily in the MW for America is the direct result of Islamic teachings and tenets that have been in existence since the 7th century. Teachings which unabashedly proclaim that Islam will one day reign supreme once “Dar al Harb” [house of war/ infidels] has been violently subjugated and, or annihilated.

These odious teaching are based on the following Koranic verses:

“The infidels should not think that they can get away from us. Prepare against them whatever arms and weapons you can muster so that you may terrorize them.”– (Koran 8:59)

“Fight them [infidels] until Islam reigns supreme.” — (Koran 2:193)

“Cut off their [infidels'] heads, and cut off the tips of their fingers.” — (Koran 8:12)

History explicitly indicates that these teachings were in full throttle long before America ever arrived on the scene. In fact — over the course of the last 1400 years — approximately 270 million “infidels” have been violently eradicated by Islamic terrorists.

Terrorists, by the way that publicly recited the aforementioned verses while beheading, raping and pillaging “Dar al Harb.” 

It was the MW back in 1453...

Mercy For Everyone But Pollard?


March 12, 2013


One of the ideals and hopes we have as Americans is equality under the law. Whatever is written into our laws is applied equally to all citizens. 


Now, when it comes to espionage, there are different thresholds for different crimes against our nation, all dependent upon the damage to national security. Understandable indeed. But, when we find that there is a severe inequity in our treatment of spies from enemy States over friendly States...and an apparent favoritism of the former...we have an issue that must be resolved post haste.


Case in point: In 1985, Jonathan Pollard was indicted on one charge: One count of passing classified information to an ally, without intent to harm the United States. He was sentenced to Life in prison. 


This was unprecedented.


No one in US History has ever received a life sentence for passing classified information to an ally, except Jonathan Pollard. He was never accused of, or indicted for treason. Nor was he ever indicted for harming the US. His only indictment was one count of passing classified information to an ally. The normal sentence this charge carries is 2 to 4 years. Yet, lacking benefit of trial and as the result of a government-violated plea agreement, Pollard received the same sentence as the infamous Aldrich Ames...a high-ranking CIA employee (the chief of counter intelligence in Eastern Europe and the USSR) who spied for the Soviet Union and was indicted for treason. A traitor who gave critical defense secrets to a US enemy, which resulted in the deaths of at least 11 US agents.


That screams inequity to me...


For your comparison, here are a few examples of how sentences were meted out to those who spied for:


American Allies - Peter Lee spied for China received 1 year in halfway house/ J. Reece Roth spied for China & Iran received 4 years/ Samuel Morison spied for Great Britain received 2 years (served 3 months)/ Philip Selden spied for El Salvador received 2 years/ Robert Kim spied for South Korea received 9 years.


American Enemies - Elsa Alvarez spied for Cuba received 3 years/ Mohammed Reza Alavi spied for Iran received 15 months/ Brian Horton spied for the Soviet Union received 6 years/ Hassan Abu-Jihaad spied for Al-Qaida received 10 years/ Troung Dinh Ung spied for North Vietnam received 15 years/ James Hall spied for Soviet Union & East Germany received 40 years/ Robert Hanssen spied for Soviet Union received Life sentence.


These few examples show a stark inequity of punishment for the crimes committed by Pollard. Additionally, the treatment of Pollard while incarcerated has been abhorrent. Pollard spent 7 years in solitary confinement. Jonathan Stuart Grassian, a psychiatrist who studies solitary confinement, found that common effects of solitary confinement include increased sensitivity to stimuli, hallucinations, and other changes in perception, as well as cognitive problems including memory loss, difficulty thinking, and impulsiveness. Those are the results for a much briefer period of solitary.


Pollard was also unjustly held for a year in a mental asylum for the criminally insane (which may have been the result of the prolonged period of solitary). There, he was routinely deprived of his clothing and eyeglasses in attempts to degrade and crush him. 


The question is why? What's the reasoning for this cruel treatment? Why this interminable sentence? The disparity between this punishment and the sentences for other similar offenders, is immense.


It's time for our nation to show mercy to this man. And since Mr. Obama portrays himself to be a great friend to the Jewish State, why not show that friendship in a magnanimous move to either commute his sentence or straight out pardon Pollard?


Because, according to the Judeo-Christian Scriptures: Mercy is better than sacrifice (Hosea 6:6).


Shalom through strength...

Kerry: Just As Fakakte* As His Boss


March 11, 2013


"There is more stupidity than hydrogen in the universe, and it has a longer shelf life." ~Frank Zappa


Well, Sec. of State John Kerry is off to a stupid start. And I say that with all due respect to the office...


His first speech was at the University of Virginia...where he spoke of the American "sacred" duty to address climate change for future generations (I'm sorry, I missed that one in our Founding documents). "Sacred"...really? That's odd terminology for a political representative to use. Not to mention disturbing, unless you are an Earth worshipper.


Then Kerry took off to Berlin...and displayed his lack of vast knowledge on religion and religious freedom. Kerry said, "In America, you have a right to be stupid." Well, THAT was a stupid thing to say...


That's his understanding of religious freedom in the US? If Kerry would have cracked a book and studied his predecessors, like Thomas Jefferson, our first Sec. of State, he would have understood (which he does not) the critical importance of religious freedom. Jefferson said regarding this issue, "For I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility to every form of tyranny over the mind of man."


I mention this quote due to the drivel that Kerry offered next...



"You have intolerance in a number of different kinds of religions or points of view in different things. I know that Islam is not represented by a lot of jihadists and others. I know it’s a beautiful religion. I’ve read more and more about it."


He's reading a book...now that's encouraging, but wait...

Kerry continued:
"I’ve been reading a book recently called No god but God, which is the history of the Prophet and where he came from and how it developed as a religion. It’s fascinating. If I went back to college today, I’d probably go back and be a comparative religion major and a comparative literature major, because those are the things that help you understand what makes people tick and how they’re working and how they think. But the important thing is to have the tolerance to say you can have a different point of view."


Aww, and to think we were encouraged. 


The book he referred to is on the Useful Idiots reading list...it's written by Reza Aslan, an unofficial Iranian regime operative who researcher/scholar Robert Spencer calls a, "quintessential example of a deceptive Islamic supremacist who is widely taken as a "moderate," and is thus a good illustration of how people can be taken in by such snake-oil peddlers."  In other words, he's a taqiyya-practicing Muslim (lies for the sake of Islam). Aslan is a Board member of the National Iranian American Council, and is regarded as an apologist for the Islamic Republic of Iran. Aslan has also requested that the U.S. Government negotiate with Ahmadinejad and Hamas...the head of a State Sponsor of Terrorism and a group listed on the State Dept. list of Terrorist Organizations.


Sounds moderate to me...


Over 20,000 deadly terror attacks have been committed by Islamic terrorists globally since 9/11. That's not "beautiful" but barbaric, Mr. Kerry.


Kerry clearly fits this fakakte* administration to a T. Like the bumbling Count Jester Biden, he'll keep us both amused and worried.


I will say Kerry was right about one thing: You have a right to be stupid in America...and he's already thoroughly proved that. 


*Fakakte - Yiddish for screwed-up.

Will Obama Encourage The Third Intifada?


March 4, 2013


"He who does not punish evil commands it to be done.' ~Leonardo da Vinci


In just 2 1/2 weeks, Obama will land at Ben Gurion International Airport in Israel...something the self-proclaimed greatest helper of Israel of all American Presidents, has never seen necessary to do in over 4 years. Sounds more like an aversion than an affinity for the Jewish State to me...


The man (not representing the majority of American sentiment for Israel) has worked diligently to diss the Israeli PM (detailed in earlier articles). He has helped Israel's enemies keep the boot on Israel's neck concerning surrender of more Jewish Land. And more recently, he's been working overtime to arm the country whose new Parliament considers Israel its #1 enemy, with 16 F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks. How should Israel take that...as more from the Helper-in-Chief?


Israeli's Army Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz is recommending preparations for a Third Intifada (Palestinian uprising). There have been signs for some time that the Palestinian Authority (PA) was stirring up their minions to push the Israelis once again.
