Iran Spewing Hate: Some Songs Never Change


September 30, 2011


"The Zionist regime's establishment was based on numerous deceptions and lies and one of the biggest lies was the Holocaust." ~Ahmadinejad at Tehran U. 8/26/11


Since 1979, the Islamic nation of Iran has spewed anti-Jewish slogans, but few were worried that those shibboleths would turn violent. That is, until the rhetoric got ramped up in 2005 by the Regime's Pinocchio Ahmadinejad, or as he's more affectionately know: Ahjad.


And it's been increasing ever since...


Some past rants by the Iranian marionette:

And he continued his Muslim melody at the UN and Durban III this past week: “Iran believes that whoever is for humanity should also be for eradicating the Zionist regime (Israel) as symbol of suppression and discrimination,” Ahmadinejad said in an interview with a Lebanese television network.


The current Islamic Regime's sock-puppet is carrying on their tired old hateful harangue...it's a haunting melody that works better on Oct. 31st. But with their nuclear program moving forward (as the world community has done little to deter them)...like a cheetah (who can accelerate from 0 to 68 mph in 3 seconds) after its prey...this time the rhetoric has morphed into a credible threat.


When will the world community begin to condemn this hate-speech? Where is the hue and cry against this mendacious messenger, when truth be told: ALL of the West is on their morbid menu.


A new tune needs to make the airwaves. An anthem against Ahjad and the Maniacal Mullahs...for sanity's sake and for the sake of innocents everywhere.


Shalom through strength...

It's A New Day: PA Does Not Get Its Way


September 29, 2011


Uh oh...the Palestinian Authority (PA)...with all their threats and demands for the past few weeks...doesn't get its way...at least with the Quartet.


Aww, sniff, sniff, does anyone have a Kleenex?


The Quartet on the Middle East is comprised of: the US, the UN, the EU and Russia. Their ideas and proposals, in the past, have been lame, at best. BUT, this proposal surely sends a message to Abbas and the PA, that bully-bans extend all the way over to Gaza.


The Quartet has proposed a timetable for revived talks and for a final resolution. BUT it did not reach Abbas’ demand for a complete freeze of Jewish building in Judea and Samaria and in areas of Jerusalem, which Abbas insists on confiscating as the capital of the PA.


All their pressure this week appears to be for naught. While they await a vote, it is unlikely they will receive the number necessary (2/3 majority) to gain Member State status. 


And the US has a veto dangling over their keffiyehs, as well.


Now, the PA, consisting of the terror groups Fatah & Hamas (although the US does not consider Fatah to be a threat), still refuse to recognize Israel's right to exist. (Sidebar: So, doesn't that make any negotiations/talks moot, since both parties have to recognize the others existence, as a prerequisite? I guess this is where Rod Serling steps into the picture...)


The fecklessness, on the part of outsiders (the Quartet et al) to the conflict ends up being pernicious and not quaint or humorous. Because the result of world leaders accommodating the babblings and demands of a people who daily commit crimes against humanity on innocent Israelis, is a body count of precious blood. These crimes are both an act of commission by the PA...coupled with the belittling or outright disregard of those lives, which is an act of omission by those beyond the conflict.


Many can play Macbeth here...


But, for now...the Quartet is like the old Ford motto: They have a better idea. 


Shalom through strength...

Not An Agent Of "Hope"


September 28, 2011


‎"President Obama's re-election strategy (class-warfare) unambiguously demonstrates that he is not an agent of "Hope"--but rather a divisive, sinister and self-serving politico who will (if need be) profoundly polarize the country in order to achieve his political objectives."---W.R. Ingoff

Tired Talking Points


September 26, 2011


Despite the mendacious and tired liberal talking points concerning the Middle East: The acrimony, mayhem, violence and hyper Jew-hatred (which imbues the region) is a direct result of Koranic dogma (better known as ISLAM).

Security Council: Will The US Have To Be The Adult?


September 22, 2011


The Palestinian Authority's (PA) dream of being Queen for a Day, were dashed today...but their real thrashing will come in a Security Council vote...


Here's a quick refresher on how this all works at the 'Useless Nations': 

The US will veto the bid for Palestinian statehood, (and normally I would give even Obama kudos for this, if his motives weren't dubious, due to an election season)...therefore the bid is moot.


The most disturbing fact is the prior blustering behavior by the PA, demanding statehood...and promising that if it didn't get what it wanted, violence could very well break out. Really? That sounds like the warning of a bullying child threatening to trash the room if he didn't get his way.


Is this the depths to which the world, in their trepidation of standing for truth, have gone? That they will allow an entity (the PA), who is acting more like Chuckie than a peace partner, call the shots?


It looks like, once again, that the 'City upon a Hill' will have to lead the way...even if it is by a man who would rather lead from behind.


Shalom through strength...

Israel & The PA: Making Nice With Hate


September 16, 2011 

It's coming down to the wire. Israel has bent over backwards so many times to make peace with the Palestinian Authority (PA), they now look more like a pretzel than a State. All the compromises have been done by Israel and none by the 'Palestinians'. 

It's been an inequitable relationship so far...Israel gives in on almost everything and the PA has it's minions pummel Israeli civilians into weariness to pressure their government to give more. 

A bum deal to most rational people...but ostensibly, according to the global milieu so far, the globe is replete with mentally challenged peeps...


The PA's current finagling prior to the Durban III conference next week in order to declare Statehood (Jew-Free with a capital of Jerusalem), unequivocally proves that the 'Palestinians' are neither concerned with negotiations nor peace with the Jewish State.


All of Israel's efforts, albeit genuine, have been with people who have no honor, no integrity and no mercy. Therefore, Israel's efforts have been in vain because the beneficiaries of those acts find their sustenance on a toxic drip of hate. 


So Israel's sincere acts toward peace, are met with suspicion...and will never be viewed otherwise.


Note to the befuddled among us: Making nice with hate, guarantees you the short end of the stick...and in this case, the long end will keep whacking.


Shalom through strength...

School's Open And The Curriculum Is: HATE


September 14, 2011


On Tuesday, the Samaria Military Court sentenced Hakim Awad, 18, who was convicted of murdering 5 members of the Fogel family in Itamar last March, to five consecutive life sentences and another five years in prison, totaling 130 years in jail.

Hakim Awad and his cousin Amjad Awad, 19, barbarically murdered the Fogel family: Ehud Fogel, 36, Ruth Fogel, 35, 11-year-old Yoav, 4-year-old Elad and 2-month-old Hadas. 


Amjad's comments on his slaughter of innocents: "I'm proud of what I did...I don't regret what I did, even if it means I'm sentenced to death."


Hakim's comments on his slaughter of innocents: "I am a person like you, I have no mental condition, I never had a serious illness. My only illness is the Israeli occupation."


How could teenagers become so hateful and calloused as to slaughter innocents...and possess no remorse?


The answer can be found in the culture of Jew-hatred manufactured, manipulated and controlled by the Palestinian Authority (PA)...and supported and also practiced by the Muslim Arab Street.


There are myriad examples of the system that supports the corruption that is deeply embedded in the young by the PA. Here are a few:

The list can go on interminably, including PA children's TV shows reinforcing themes of bloodthirsty hate for Jews and for the State of Israel, naming recreation areas after suicide bombers, surrounding the young in a milieu of anger and detestation.


This is what killers like Hakim and Amjad were weaned on. A carefully concocted cocktail of hatred and lies, resulting in the closest human examples of robotic assassins. 


Yes, it's a new school year. Time to nurture our children to grow into solid, caring human beings. That is, of course, unless our children happen to be living in a PA-controlled community...supported by the Arab Street and ignored by the world/MSM media...


Shalom through strength...

Insidious Manipulation

Abbas' Overplayed Hand


September 9, 2011


Despite the numerous calls for the PA to renege on a declaration of a Palestinian State at the UN, during Durban III, and return to the negotiation table with Israel...Abbas has become even more intractable. He is moving full steam ahead with a worldwide media campaign prior to the September 21 motion at the UN for Palestinian statehood.


But in foolishness, he's overplaying his hand...


First, in his media campaign he used the words of Obama in a speech before the UN General Assembly in 2010, in which he expressed hope (something he does so well he even won a prize for it [Nobel]) of a Palestinian State in a year. But Abbas is presenting it in a radio spot as a PROMISE by Obama. A deception...something the PA are masters at...


Second, a unilateral pronouncement of a Palestinian state would be an illegal act that would violate U.N. Security Council Resolutions 242 and 338. Those resolutions, which are binding, call for a negotiated settlement of the dispute between Israel and the PA, which include 'secure and recognized borders'.


Abbas' assumption that there's enough anti-Semitism in world governments and world media, to bully his way into a State (with Jerusalem as their capital), is simply a PA State of mind...not a reality. If this were a time that didn't have a 24/7 news cycle, perhaps the fiend would be able to have his way. But, alas, to his ultimate dismay...we're ALL watching. And it will not be as he desires...and the PA will be further than ever from an official PA State.


His hatred for the Jewish State, as with his brethren, has caused him to go too far. The results will NEVER be a State, because it's robbed from its rightful owners. But rather, this arrogant and hateful move will cause the loss of more innocent lives....


But for Abbas and his ilk...that's not a problem, as long as the lives lost...are Jewish.


Shalom through strength...

Turkey's Erdogan: Goes Gangsta


September 7, 2011


Sore loser, cry baby, sour grapes...there are many terms for those who lose in a fair competition, but whine incessantly about it. But I have a new term to add to the lot: Turkey.


Since their complicity in the first Gaza Flotilla, which backfired on them tremendously...they have been in a pouting mode.


Here's what happened, to Turkey's PM Erdogan's dismay:

Turkish PM Erdogan's response? He tosses the Israeli Ambassador out of the country. Ooo tough guy.


Then Erdogan demands Israeli diplomats get out of the country. Push the peacemakers around...how gangsta...


Then Erdogan suspends all trade with Israel!! Well, kinda...sshhh


After making his Sopranos audition...his spokesperson later 'clarified' in the Wall Street Journal that the prime minister had been referring in his remarks only to trade in defense goods, and not to trade in general.


In an attempt to sound like a big kahuna to the Muslim world...and because he went gangsta...Erdogan made himself look like a gigantic mascot of his country. And if I were him, I'd be worried...Thanksgiving is coming and you know what some Westerners do with Turkeys.


Shalom through strength...

Ample Supply Of TP


September 6, 2011


This Thursday's "Jobs" speech will proffer nothing new. It will be a longwinded whine centered around the prosaic, not to mention tired liberal nostrum of class warfare (tax the wealthy). Hopefully Obama's handlers will have an ample supply of toilet paper on hand to wipe his lips.

Turkey: Defiance In The Face Of Truth


September 3, 2011


The Palmer Report, the UN report on the Gaza Flotilla Raid, is out. And it proves Israel correct in their blockade.


And, consequently, it proved Turkey WRONG.


So what was Turkey's response to the report? First, they threw Israel's Ambassador out of the country. 


Ah, grace under fire...


Second, the Turkish navy will significantly strengthen its presence in the eastern Mediterranean Sea. In other words...they will be a personal escort for the next Gaza Flotilla.


Erdogan to Israel, UN: Up Yours!


OR..."wah, wah, wah...it didn't go my way"...


A Turkish official was quoted saying, "We are looking for the best timing for the visit...Our primary purpose is to draw the world’s attention to what is going on in Gaza and to push the international community to end the unfair embargo imposed by Israel."


Hmmm...unfair? Why sure...it's unfair not to allow them to transfer weapons to their brethren, and the enemies of Israel, to destroy the Jews. It's legal, but oh so unfair...if you're a terrorist scum, I guess...


Since the rebirth of the Jewish State in 1948, Turkey has seen a rise in anti-Semitism. As Turkey's government has become more Islamic, by membership in their parliament...which reflects the sentiments of the population. And this has led to a recent surge in anti-Semitic literature, most notably the sale of Mein Kampf, the autobiography of Adolf Hitler, a bestseller throughout the country. Moreover, sales of the similarly themed books like 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' and Henry Ford's 'The International Jew' have also increased. (Yes, that's Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Co., who published his anti-Semitic refuse out of Dearborn, MI.)


The Gaza blockade was necessary to prevent weapons from reaching Gaza. Weapons used to target Israeli civilians. The UN confirmed the legality of the blockade in the Palmer Report. That should be the end of the story. 


Bust as long as there are Muslims, there will be Jewish enemies. And as long as there are Jewish enemies, there will never be peace in the Middle East or anywhere else a Jew may set his foot.


Shalom through strength...

Soccer Fans: Making Sport of Hating Jews?


September 1, 2011


The malignant contagion known as anti-Semitism, is on the rise yet again. The increase of global anti-Semitism is alarming...and the tolerance of hateful protests worldwide is inexcusable and reprehensible. And it's being expressed at sports events. But predominantly at one sports event: Soccer.


Am I picking on soccer? Nope...facts are facts.


Violence has a history among fans of soccer. In the mid-1970s, a thuggish movement began to spread from England to continental Europe, particularly to Germany, Belgium, Italy and Holland. On average, there were violent incidents at one of every ten games in these countries in the 1990s. Police estimate that about 10% of soccer fans in these countries are prone to violence. That may not sound like a large number, but 10% can be huge when that violence is focused on you.


Since that time, the loathing has been festering below the surface...and inaudibly, just as real bigotry behaves...


Since 2006, there have been a growing number of incidents that have not been addressed...similar to the one below (catalogued by the AJC):


"In 2006 there were a number of antisemitic and racist incidents in German soccer, especially in the lower leagues, that were widely reported in the media. During a game between the second professional league clubs Dynamo Dresden and FC Energie Cottbus in December 2005, Cottbus fans displayed a large banner with the word “Juden” (Jews) flanked by two stars of David. The letter “d” in “Juden” was identical to the emblem of the opposition team Dynamo Dresden. TV viewers saw an antisemitic banner that was not confiscated by the police or the marshals. No sports officials imposed penalties on the Cottbus soccer club, despite the fact that the photo of the banner was widely publicized in the media."


Ignored sentiments reminiscent of the subtle hatred that eventually sent 6 million Jews to their death...and in a Fatherland that is still stained with the stench of death. That is NOT a good sign of things to come.


But, of course, this is not limited to Germany. There have been incidents reported in soccer fields all over the EU...including Spain, Italy, France...etc. And more recently in the Netherlands (with shouts of "Hamas, Hamas. Jews To Gas").


Is the US the only country where the citizens would never tolerate this hatred toward the Jewish people at a sports event...or anywhere else, for that matter? Besides the fact that our sports are far better than any found elsewhere in the world (excluding Rugby)...and yes, our fans may be rowdy at times...and have team-spirit rowdy-dows on occasion....but we would NEVER allow or encourage such sick rhetoric. 


Sadly, it's clear that there is something now endemic to soccer fans that brings out a twisted form of anti-Semitism not seen since Adolf had his good little Bundists click their heals and follow him. A verbal hate that lays the groundwork for another slow, methodical walk toward another Shoah. 


Is there something about soccer that brings out Jew-hatred in a fan? I hope not...because 10% is 10% too much for me.


Shalom through strength...
