Arab Winter Opposed to Israeli Spring, Re: The Israeli Spring, Washington Times, August 30, 2013

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Comparing Israel to its neighbours in the Middle East is like comparing an oasis of modernity, prosperity, freedom, democracy, tolerance, civilization, inventiveness and entrepreneurial, forward thinking to a cesspool of backwardness, poverty, totalitarianism, misogyny, intolerance, hatred, violence, barbarity, conformity and atavism in which real thinking is verboten.

That’s neighbours without exception.

Israel stands out not because it is a tiny Jewish state surrounded by hordes of Islamic antagonists who are offended by its very existence and who want nothing more than to destroy it and wipe it off the map on religious grounds but because it is modern, prosperous, free, democratic, tolerant and civilized unlike any of its neighbours and because it is not governed and hamstrung by backward, uncivilized, hateful, violent, misogynistic 1,400 year old attitudes and doctrines.

Israel’s neighbours should stop demonizing, vilifying and trying to destroy Israel because that is entirely self-defeating. They should instead throw off the shackles of the past (which will forever prevent them from living in the future), learn to respect and admire Israel’s achievements, take lessons from the Israelis about how to develop and maintain a prosperous society which makes enormous contributions to the world in the face of overwhelming odds and apply those lessons to their own societies.

The closer one compares Israel to its neighbours the more exceptional and civilized she looks, the more exceptional and civilized she is. If Israel’s neighbours are ever going to stop killing each other, improve the lives of their people, contribute to humanity like Israel has and does and move forward into the twenty-first century instead of living backward lives in the seventh they will have to put down their swords and emulate her instead of continually raising them and remaining mired in the past.

Now that would be the end of the 1,400 year old Arab Winter and the start of the true Arab Spring.

As for the Israeli Spring, that started a long time ago.

No thanks to Israel’s neighbours.

In spite of Israel’s neighbours.

Physician heal thyself as they say.

Fight back with the truth, Re: Jewish groups fight TransLink over Palestine ad campaign, Vancouver Province, August 28, 2013

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

A group calling itself the Palestinian Awareness Coalition just launched an advertising campaign in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada which purports to educate the Vancouver public about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in the Middle East. The campaign consists of 15 bus posters and a large mural in a transit station in central Vancouver, the general tenor of which is that Palestine has been steadily shrinking into Israel because of Israeli occupation over the past 66 years.

This is patent nonsense and does not stand up to honest, unbiased, objective and knowledgeable scrutiny. The campaign is simplistic and untrue and does not educate the public about the real nature and facts of the conflict at all. All it does is distort the conflict and paint a false picture of the conflict and its roots and history. Its not education, its propaganda. Unfortunately many if not most viewers will see it as accurate and truthful and Israel (and Israelis and Jews) will once more be vilified and demonized on the basis of “information” and “educational material” which simply isn’t factual or true.

The Jewish community in Vancouver is naturally upset and is currently examining a number of options to counter the campaign.

How about countering it with a campaign of its own which presents the true facts of the matter?

Vancouverites, and Canadians, are a generally fair people and a campaign based on facts and not propaganda would enable them to see that the Palestine Awareness Coalition campaign is nothing more than bilge and has no basis in reality. Giving them the truth and doing it in a very public manner is the best possible response to the Palestine Awareness Coalition distortions and drivel.

After all, the truth shall set you free as the saying goes.

The truth of course being the last thing the Palestine Awareness Coalition wants the public to see.

The real reason Obama is going to bomb Syria, Re: Evidence: Sarin Gas Attack Work of U.S. Allies, WorldNetDaily, August 27, 2013

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

The United States is accusing Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad of attacking Syrian civilians with chemical weapons and is using this as an excuse to take military action against him and his regime.

The use of U.S. military force is imminent and all indications are that it will take place in the next few days.

While there is absolutely no doubt that chemical weapons were recently used against Syrian civilians credible evidence is emerging that it was the rebels themselves who used them, not al-Assad.

In light of this emerging evidence Obama should postpone an attack until it can be established beyond a shadow of a doubt that the weapons were in fact used by al-Assad.

Truth be told he should decide not to bomb Syria even if al-Assad used chemical weapons against civilians, but that would be too much to hope for.

Will he postpone an attack?

No, he won’t and an attack by the U.S. military in the next few days is virtually a foregone conclusion.

Why?

Because Obama wants to overthrow the al-Assad regime and replace it with a government formed by the rebels, even though the rebels are made up entirely of Islamists who wish to bring the United States to its knees on the way to establishing a worldwide Islamic Caliphate in which Islam reigns supreme and even though they will do everything they can to harm and eventually destroy the U.S. should they come to power.

Why on earth would a President of the United States of all people want to do that?

Why on earth would a President of the United States of all people ally himself and the country with Islamists like that in the first place?

For the same reason he supports the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, for the same reason he has allowed Islam and Islamists to take prominent roles in American government and policymaking, for the same reason he has allowed Islam and Islamists to undermine, subvert and weaken American values, institutions and the American way of life as part of the effort to turn the U.S. into an Islamic country governed by Sharia, Islamic law, for the same reason he has done everything he can to undermine, subvert, weaken and destroy Israel, for the same reason he has seriously weakened the American military.

Because he himself is an Islamist, that’s why.

Take a serious, honest, objective and factual look at his background and track record and you can come to no other conclusion.

Bombing Syria would significantly strengthen the rebels and significantly weaken the government and is clearly not in the best interests of the United States on any number of levels, whether it used chemical weapons against civilians or not.

Because he is an Islamist and because he does not have the best interests of the United States at heart Obama is going to do it anyway.

Bet on it.

One last thought.

Would he take action against the rebels if they were the ones who used chemical weapons against civilians?

Not a chance.

America should not intervene on behalf of rebels in Syria, Re: Top U.S. military chief says U.S. armed intervention in Syria wouldn’t resolve civil war or aid American interests, Jihad Watch, August 24, 2013

Sunday, August 25th, 2013

General Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the United States and President Obama’s top military adviser, has written a letter to Congress in which he says that military intervention by the U.S. on the side of the rebels in the civil war in Syria would not resolve the war there or aid American interests.

The United States is under enormous pressure to intervene militarily on the side of the rebels in Syria’s civil war in the wake of the alleged use of chemical weapons against civilians by the ruling Assad regime. I say alleged because even though there is no doubt that chemical weapons were used against civilians it is entirely possible that they were used by the rebels themselves in order to provoke a military response against the regime.

One consideration and one consideration only should be taken into account by the U.S. before any decision is made to use military force on the side of the rebels…that consideration is whether or not military force would be in the best interests of the United States.

The answer is a clear, unequivocal no and given that the United States should not use military force against the Assad regime, even if it can be proven that it did use chemical weapons against civilians.

If the U.S. supported the rebels militarily it would dramatically increase their chances of victory in the war. It wouldn’t necessarily resolve the war but it would dramatically increase their chances of winning it. Since the rebels are made up exclusively of anti-American, anti-Western, anti-Israeli Islamist groups consumed by hatred and disgust for all things American, all things Western and all things Israeli, including Al-Qaeda and its offshoots, and since any future government formed by the rebels would be inherently hostile to the United States and would use all the means at its disposal to act against the U.S. and its interests in the Middle East and elsewhere, including violence, it is clearly not in the best interests of the United States to use military force on their behalf or do anything else that might assist them either.

General Dempsey is right. The use of military force by the U.S. would not resolve the civil war in Syria or aid American interests in the Middle East, or anywhere else for that matter. If anything it would damage them and damage them severely and inevitably lead to the loss of American blood and treasure, would inevitably lead to war between the United States and Syria. Military intervention by the United States on the side of the rebels is clearly and unequivocally not in the best interests of the U.S. and the U.S. should resist all calls to intervene militarily.

It should stay out.

In its own best interests.

If that means that the Assad regime eventually emerges victorious so be it. Odious as the regime is (and it is most certainly odious whether it used chemical weapons against civilians or not) an Assad government will be far easier for the United States to deal with than a government formed by the rebels.

Tolerating the intolerable is nothing more than suicide, Re: Merkel at Dachau: Europe at the Brink, Commentary Magazine, August 22, 2013

Saturday, August 24th, 2013

German Chancellor Angela Merkel just gave a speech at the site of the former Dachau concentration camp in which she called for tolerance and deplored the resurgence of Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence in Germany and the rest of Europe, Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence often committed under the guise of an anti-Israel narrative. She spoke about the specter, danger and reality of Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence in Germany and the rest of Europe and warned listeners that the consequences of bowing to them would be enormous and catastrophic for Germans, other Europeans and European civilization itself.

Merkel was right when she said that the consequences of bowing to Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence would be enormous and catastrophic and wrong when she called for tolerance, because tolerating the intolerable is nothing more than suicide.

The war against Jews which is being carried out by Islamic invaders in Germany and the rest of Europe is really just part of the age-old war by Islamists against all Europeans and European civilization itself. Islamists throughout Germany and the rest of Europe want nothing more than to replace European civilization with Islamic law and practices, to turn Europe into an Islamic continent under the rule of Islam instead of a Western one under the mantle of Judeo-Christian values, and are well on the way to doing exactly that. It is no coincidence at all that the resurgence of Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence in Germany and the rest of Europe has coincided with huge increases in immigrants from Islamic countries in recent years. Germans and other Europeans need only to look at the fate of Jews in Europe to see what lies in store for them. If Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and ant-Semitic violence (which are all intrinsic, integral parts of Islam) are allowed to prevail then Europeans are next and European civilization is doomed. European Jews really are the canaries in the coal mine as the saying goes and Europeans will share their fate in the end.

That is why Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence cannot be tolerated in Germany and the rest of Europe, why they must be fought against and fought against hard with all the energy that can be mustered and using all the resources which are available. Fighting and winning is a matter of personal, national and civilizational survival. Tolerance will do nothing more than ensure defeat and is tantamount to turning Germany and the rest of Europe over to Islamists and replacing European civilization with Islam and Sharia, Islamic law. Germany and the rest of Europe are already on the brink and if Jew hatred, anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic violence are allowed to prevail then they will most certainly go over it.

Tolerating the intolerable really is nothing more than suicide. If Europe is to survive tolerance is the last thing it needs. Just travel around Europe and look at the terrible impact Islam has had and is having and tell me I’m wrong.

You can’t.

These are just the tip of the iceberg, Re: 252 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, etc., Freedom Outpost, August 18, 2013

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

Every American who cares about their country and its future, every American who cares about freedom and democracy, every American who cares about the integrity of the office of President and the American system of government, every American who believes in the rule of law, every American who cares about their civil liberties, every American who believes that their President should not be a lying, thieving, corrupt dictator who constantly disregards, circumvents and breaks the law and has no regard for them or the values, history and institutions of their country should read this article. The 252 documented examples of President Obama’s lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism and general abuse of power cited really are just the tip of the iceberg. There are many, many more which can be cited and they touch everything he has been involved in, every aspect of his time in office, domestic, foreign, everything. Obama is a serial liar who has constantly disregarded, circumvented and/or broken the law in order to further his anti-American ideology and fundamentally transform the United States into a religious or quasi-religious socialist nation in which government sees all, knows all and controls all, a nation in which the people are subservient to government instead of the other way around. Americans who read this article will be sickened, horrified, frightened and angry. The Presidency and the country itself are being hijacked by Obama and his sycophants and minions and the article provides 252 examples of just what he is doing and how he is doing it.

Here is a prediction. If things keep on going the way they are sometime before the next Presidential election Obama will manufacture a crisis, declare Martial Law, suspend the election and announce that he is remaining in office. Everything he has done and is doing points in that direction and Americans should not be surprised if and when it happens. They have been warned after all.

Obama has to go and he has to go now. Americans have to get rid of him and they have to get rid of him now, while they still can.

Legally of course.

Impeach him.

His track record demands it and the future of the country depends on it.

Accommodation just makes things worse, Re: Muslims are Violent Because of Islam, “They Simply Cannot See That What They Have Done Is Wrong”, Tundra Tabloids, July 31, 2013

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Islamists are people who believe that Islam is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and who live their lives according to Islam’s requirements and dictates.

Not all Islamists are Muslims, although the vast majority are.

Not all Muslims are Islamists either.

Islam is violent, brutal, intolerant, misogynist, ruthless, expansionist and supremacist and has no room for criticism or dissent, no matter how innocuous. That is its nature and essence and has been since it first came into being 1,400 odd years ago.

Islamists believe that Islam and the Islamic way of life is superior to any other belief system or religion or way of life, that anyone and everyone who is not an Islamist is inherently inferior to them.

That belief in Islam’s superiority and in their own superiority means that Islamists believe they are above non-Islamic laws and non -Islamic values and institutions and are not bound by them even if they live in non-Islamic societies. They believe they can do anything they want to to any non-Islamist they want to because Islam tells them they can and Islam tells them they should. That is how they justify the violence, brutality, intolerance, misogyny, ruthlessness, censorship and constant cries for accommodation that accompany them everywhere they go. Islam is superior to anything else and has to take precedence over anything else and Islamists can do anything they want to as long as its done in the name of Islam, murder, rape, beating and disfiguring people, destroying property, forcing non-Islamists to change their way of life to accommodate Islam, anything. All of that comes with Islam and Islamists and always has and Islamists simply cannot see that any of it is wrong because according to Islam it isn’t.

Are you a non-Islamist living in the West, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, the United States, anywhere? Want your country to survive? Accommodating Islam and Islamists won’t do it. That will just lead to national suicide, and sooner rather than later too. Just look at what’s happening in countries where Islam and Islamists already have a large presence and tell me I’m wrong.

You can’t.

No, if you want your country to survive, you’ll have to refuse to accommodate the Islamists in your midst and refuse to let Islam and Islamists take precedence over your laws, values, institutions and way of life. You’ll have to fight back and fight back hard because Islam and Islamists are on the march everywhere in the West and there isn’t a country in the West that hasn’t already been compromised.

Not Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Scandinavia, the United States, not anywhere.

And you know what?

Islamists believe that its all right because Islam tells them it is.
