In its most recent edition British Jihadists have been ordered to murder Queen Elizabeth. The order was directed towards British Jihadists returning to Britain from fighting in Syria but it really applies to any Jihadist living in Britain whether they’ve been to Syria or not. Jihadists are instructed to act as lone wolves to avoid detection and are given advice on how and where to carry out an attack. 

Jihadists are also ordered to commit mass murder as well. In particular, sporting events attended by thousands of people are to be targeted in order to murder and maim large numbers of people in one fell swoop, inflict the maximum amount of terror, destruction and death in each instance and reap as much publicity from each instance as possible. Wimbledon, Cheltenham, Epsom and Premier League and FA Cup football matches are seen as excellent targets but any sporting event attended by large numbers of people will do nicely, murdering and maiming as many people as possible in one fell swoop being the most important consideration. That means of course that while sporting events are the preferred targets they aren’t the only potential ones at all…any place where large numbers of people are gathered would be suitable as well and if hundreds or thousands of people are killed in a park or on the underground or in a hotel that would be just fine. Car bombs are seen as the preferred method of murdering and maiming people (Inspire even provides instructions on how to build and detonate them) but anything that Jihadists use is more than acceptable if it works and al-Qaeda’s orders are executed. 

In the same issue, targets in the United States and France are also recommended and the same orders and instructions are issued for al-Qaeda operatives, Jihadists, in those countries. Like the ones that apply specifically to Britain they are directed towards American and French Jihadists returning from fighting in Syria but really apply to any Jihadist living in either country regardless of whether or not they’ve fought in Syria…as in Britain, murdering and maiming large numbers of people in one fell swoop, inflicting the maximum amount of terror, destruction and death from each instance and reaping as much publicity as possible from each instance are the primary objectives, with murdering and maiming large numbers of people in one fell swoop being the most important of the three…any Jihadist who succeeds in mass murder would be seen as a hero of the first degree just like they would be in Britain, whether they were in Syria or not, whether they used a car bomb or not, whether they attacked a sporting event or not. 

So why on earth would anyone want to murder Queen Elizabeth? 

So how on earth would anyone want to commit mass murder a la al-Qaeda? 

So how on earth can anyone justify murdering Queen Elizabeth? 

So how on earth can anyone justify mass murder a la al-Qaeda? 

Study Islam honestly, objectively, factually and in-depth and you’ll have the answers. 

Look at what Jihadists, Islamists, have done in the name of Islam since it first came into existence 1,400 years ago and what they are doing all over the world today in the name of Islam and you’ll have the answers…look at what they’ve done in the name of Islam and what they want to do in the name of Islam. 

After that, fight back and save yourself and your country…while it is still possible.

Weakness has its consequences, Re: Israel’s Defense Chief Says U.S. Projecting Weakness, Washington Free Beacon, March 20, 2014

March 21st, 2014

Moshe Yaalon, Israel’s Minister of Defense, recently stated that the United States was projecting weakness on the international stage and that Israel could not depend on the United States to do anything meaningful to prevent Iran from developing and using nuclear weapons. He also said that Israel could look to no one except itself to keep nuclear weapons out of Iran’s hands and that in the matter of Iran and nuclear weapons Israeli’s “have to behave as though we have nobody to look out for us but ourselves,”. His remarks were a clear condemnation of President Obama and the way he conducts foreign policy, weakness being the last thing an American President and by extension America itself should project, especially in this day and age of multiple threats by powerful, very capable enemies, enemies not only of the United States, Israel and the rest of the free world, but enemies of freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism as well, enemies who are getting more powerful and capable every day.

Yaalon’s remarks were pointed directly at President Obama and were of course absolutely correct. He only voiced what America’s friends and allies have been thinking for some time now and what America’s enemies have known for some time now too. Obama is a paper tiger and no one has anything to fear from him at all. Not only does he project weakness, he is weak and that means that the United States will not respond in force no matter what anyone does, that America’s enemies have carte blanche to do whatever they want, no matter how much it jeopardizes America itself or America’s friends and allies, Iran’s nuclear weapons development program and Russia’s invasion and annexation of the Crimea being but two examples among many.

Obama’s weakness has not only jeopardized the national security of the United States and the safety and security of the American people, it has also jeopardized the national security of every single one of America’s friends and allies and the safety and security of their people…its not just Americans who are affected by Obama’s weakness, who are vulnerable and endangered…its also the Australians, British, Canadians, French, Germans, Israelis, Italians, Spanish, Scandinavians and everyone else in the free world…its not just freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism in the United States that are in danger because of Obama’s weakness, its freedom, democracy, pluralism and secularism in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Israel, Italy, Spain, Scandinavia and everywhere else in the free world too…its not just the very existence of the United States that is jeopardized by Obama’s weakness…its the very existence of the rest of the free world too. The lack of a credible American deterrent means that the enemies of America and the rest of the free world, Russia and Iran included, feel they can do anything they want to and get away with it, which means that they will do anything they want to, no matter how bloody or heinous or reprehensible. All of that goes directly to Obama. That’s what Yaalon was saying and he couldn’t have been more right. Weakness has its consequences and none of them are pretty.

So you see, its not only in American’s best interests to force Obama out of office, to impeach him or charge him with a possible multiplicity of offences or convince him to resign. Its in the best interests of everyone else in the free world too… the Australians, British, Canadians, French, Germans, Israelis, Italians, Spanish, Scandinavians, everyone.

Its not in the best interests of the Russians or the Iranians or the Chinese or the North Koreans or al-Qaeda or other religious fanatics et.al. though. They know how valuable he is to them and would love to see him serve out his term.

Might Makes Right, Re: Russia Laughs At Obama’s Sanctions, WorldNetDaily, March 17, 2014

March 17th, 2014

Russia’s takeover of the Crimea is just the latest proof that the old adage ‘Might Makes Right’ is every bit as true today as it has been throughout history, throughout the history of the human race. The stronger person or group or country has always been able to impose their will on their weaker counterparts and that is exactly what happened when Russia sent its military into the Crimea and effectively took it away from Ukraine and placed it firmly in the Russian sphere. The Ukrainians were weaker than the Russians and couldn’t stop them from taking over the Crimea and dividing their country in two. Russian might trumped Ukrainian weakness and meant that the Russians could do whatever they wanted to Ukraine and the Crimea, whether the Ukrainians liked it or nor, which they most assuredly didn’t. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin, like every single dictator who ever lived, understands the truth of the adage. Putin knew that Ukraine couldn’t stop him and that the United States under President Obama, the only other country, the only other entity, with the capacity to stop him, for now at least, wouldn’t. That knowledge was what caused him to go ahead to begin with. He knew that he had nothing to fear from a weak Obama and that he could march into Ukraine, march into Crimea, and do as they pleased. You want to know what really happened to Ukraine? The answer is simple. Putin’s strength, Putin’s might, trumped Obama’s weakness, that’s what. The stronger overcame the weaker…might made right, as it always does and always has done. Putin understands that whereas Obama demonstrably doesn’t, not only because of the fiasco he has presided over in Ukraine but because of the totality of his foreign policy track record as well, which has placed the national security, indeed the very existence of the U.S., in grave danger. 

America is surrounded by powerful, determined enemies who would like nothing more than to bring it to its knees, to destroy it, and who would stop at nothing to do just that. The last thing American’s need is a weak President and a weak President is exactly what they have in Obama. Make no mistake, America’s enemies know it too and have been busily taking advantage of him since he took office…make no mistake, the door to a large scale attack on America and Americans is open and getting more and more open every day. 

Might really does make right. The Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, the North Koreans, all of America’s enemies, understand that. 

Obama doesn’t. 

Hell, even if he suddenly miraculously developed a backbone his dismantling of the American military, his gutting of the American military, would severely limit his options anyway. 

The truth is, America’s enemies are getting stronger every day and America under a weak President is getting weaker every day. 

If that isn’t enough to terrify Americans I don’t know what would be. 

If that isn’t enough to remove him from office I don’t know what would be. 

If that isn’t enough to restore the American military I don’t know what would be. 

Might makes right and Americans better not forget it. 

Neither should the rest of the free world for that matter. 

Especially of course the Israelis.

Money or terror the only possible reasons, Re: Investigators convinced missing MH370 was hijacked, The Malaysian Times, March 15, 2014

March 15th, 2014

In the end there are only four possible reasons for the disappearance of a Malaysian passenger jet last week on a routine flight from Malaysia to Beijing with 239 people on board.

The first is that some sort of catastrophic event occurred in mid-air that caused it to break up very quickly and that it crashed into the ocean as a result.

The second is that some sort of catastrophic event occurred in mid-air that caused everyone on board to die very quickly but that the plane nevertheless flew on its own for several hours before running out of fuel and crashing and disintegrating somewhere.

The third is that it was hijacked by a person or persons unknown who then forced the pilot to crash the plane killing everyone on board.

The fourth is that it was hijacked by a person or persons unknown for reasons which are as yet unknown and that it was flown to a secret location somewhere where it is sitting as we speak.

Forget the first three. All things considered, there is no way any of them could have happened without the world knowing by now, without the world at least discovering the wreckage by now.

That means that the plane was in fact hijacked by a person or persons unknown for reasons which are as yet unknown and that it was flown to a secret location somewhere where it is sitting as we speak.

That is the only plausible explanation. And yes, it is technically possible and not something that could only occur in the realm of science fiction. Whoever hijacked it didn’t even necessarily have to be on board. He or she…they…could have hacked into the plane’s computers and controlled it themselves.

So why would anyone do anything like that?

In the end there are only two possible reasons.

Money or terror.

If it was money the perpetrators will soon start demanding huge payments in return for releasing the passengers and/or the plane itself, threatening to murder the passengers and crew and destroy the plane if such payments aren’t made. It would in other words be the largest and most audacious act of piracy in history.

If it was terror everyone on board (except perhaps the hijackers) is already dead and the plane is being fitted out as we speak with some sort of weapon of mass destruction or being otherwise prepared to fly somewhere and cause millions of deaths. It would in other words be the largest and most audacious act of terrorism in history, the largest and most audacious act of mass murder in history, something that would make 9/11 pale by comparison.

Either way, we’ll have the answer soon.

Personally, I’m betting on terror being the reason.

Israel can learn from Ukraine, Re: Broken Promises, National Post, March 12, 2014

March 13th, 2014

Twenty years ago in 1994 the United States and Russia were the two largest nuclear powers on earth. 

Ukraine was number three and was most definitely a nuclear power to be reckoned with.It had roughly 1,900 long range nuclear warheads and another 2,500 or so short range nuclear weapons under its control and there were approximately 200 silos scattered around the country ready to launch them as circumstances warranted. 

In one of the great blunders of history the government of Ukraine at the time agreed to give up its nuclear weapons and become a non nuclear nation, something no other nuclear power has done before or since. It did so after receiving assurances from the other nuclear powers of the day that its territorial integrity, including the Crimea, would forever be respected and that its national sovereignty would not be jeopardized or compromised as a result of giving up the weapons. Specifically, in the Budapest Memorandum the United States, Russia and Great Britain agreed “to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine,”. France and China signed the memorandum later on as well. 

So, here we are twenty years later and Russian President Vladimir Putin has sent the Russian military into the Crimea and effectively annexed it and placed it under Moscow’s control, his control, thus splitting Ukraine and jeopardizing and compromising its political independence, its national sovereignty, its very existence. 

Where are the other signatories to the memorandum and what are they doing to get the Russians to keep their word and leave Ukraine and the Crimea alone…what are they doing to get the Russians “to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of Ukraine,” and live up to the Budapest Memorandum, not to mention at least six other international covenants and agreements? 

Nowhere to be found, that’s where and nothing substantial or effective at all, that’s what. 

By their weak, lacklustre and totally ineffectual response the United States, Great Britain, France and China as signatories to the Budapest Memorandum and the international community in general have made it crystal clear to Putin that he is free to do as he wishes with the Crimea and Ukraine and that they will not do anything meaningful to force him to change his behavior and live up to the Budapest Memorandum and all the other international covenants and agreements. They have also made it crystal clear to the Ukrainians that they are on their own and crystal clear to the rest of the world that the Budapest Memorandum and international covenants and agreements aren’t worth the paper they’re printed on…that they cannot be trusted to keep their word and live up to their promises and commitments, despite their rhetoric…that promises are made to be broken and that they will break them. 

Can anyone seriously believe that Putin would have marched on Ukraine if it had retained its nuclear weapons? No, they can’t. Can anyone seriously believe that Ukraine would be in the predicament it is if it decided not to trust the United States, Great Britain, Russia and later France and China and kept its nuclear weapons? No, they can’t. 

Ukraine’s predicament is a very instructive lesson for Israel, whose nuclear deterrent is arguably the only thing keeping its enemies from attacking in force and overwhelming and destroying it. 

Very instructive indeed.

A story Israel should be telling the world, Re: Final inventory of Iran arms ship: 40 rockets, 180 mortars, 400,000 bullets, Jerusalem Post, March 9, 2014

March 9th, 2014

Last week the Israeli military intercepted a ship in the Red Sea some 1,500 kilometres from Israel which it suspected was carrying Iranian weapons to various terrorist organizations in Gaza, among them Islamic Jihad and Hamas.

Israel’s suspicions proved to be correct as the Israeli Defence Forces just released an inventory of the weapons which were found on the ship.

The Israelis found 40 rockets, each with a range of 90 to 160 kilometres, 180 mortar rounds and approximately 400,000 bullets.

In releasing the inventory the Israeli military said “These are advanced weapons that were designed to threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians. The IDF will continue in its mission to prevent arms smuggling across the Middle East to various terror organizations, under Iranian cover and funding,”.

All of that is true, but it only tells part of the story.

The weapons were meant to do far more than threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians, far more than terrorize millions of Israeli civilians, far more than even wound or maim millions of Israeli citizens.

They were meant to kill Israeli civilians, to murder them, men, women and children alike and the terrorist organizations, the Islamist organizations, into whose hands they were headed would have used them to do exactly that…kill Israeli civilians, murder Israeli civilians, men, women and children alike. There is no use denying that or glossing it over. If those weapons got through and Islamic Jihad, Hamas or Allah knows who else got hold of them Israeli blood would have been shed and Israeli lives would have been lost…Israeli civilians, Israeli men, women and children, would have been killed, Israeli civilians, men, women and children, would have been murdered.

That’s another part of the story.

The IDF did exceedingly well by becoming aware of the weapons shipment in the first place and by intercepting the ship and capturing the weapons. It saved many lives, many civilian lives, the lives of men, women and children alike.

That’s another part of the story as well.

Another part is Iran’s desire to wipe Israel off the map, to destroy the country and remove it from the face of the earth…which is based on hatred and disgust for Israel and all things Israeli… which in turn is based on hatred and disgust towards Jews…which is rooted in the Koran and is 1,400 years old and has everything to do with Islam and nothing to do with Israel as such…which is of course why Iran wants to develop and possess nuclear weapons, to become a nuclear power…not to threaten the security of millions of Israeli civilians but to wipe Israel off the map, to destroy the country and remove it from the face of the earth and to kill, murder, millions of Israelis, Jews, in the process.

That’s the story and Israel should be telling it to the world, loudly and clearly.

Especially to the Americans, who are number two on Iran’s hit list.

Iran’s nuclear weapons hit list.

They might even be number one for all anyone knows.

Israel is only the Little Satan after all.

The Great Satan being America.

Make no mistake, the Iranians want to destroy the United states too and will use their nuclear weapons against the U.S. at the earliest possible opportunity, in the meantime contenting themselves with carrying out small and large scale terrorist attacks against America and Americans as they have been doing for decades.

That’s something else the Israelis should be telling the Americans.

Loudly and clearly.

For their own sake.

Questions and answers, Re: Aggressive Putin, Feckless Obama, Washington Times, March 4, 2014

March 5th, 2014

Russian President Putin has revealed the true face of U.S. President Obama to the world.

He has shown the world that President Obama is feckless, cowardly, indecisive, undependable and delusional…that he does not have the intellect or the character to meet the demands of his office…that he does not have the intellect or the character to be the leader of the free world…that he has no substance and is an empty vessel.

The world should certainly have known this before the debacle in Ukraine, but if it didn’t it definitely does now.

Obama’s response to Putin’s attack on Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea raise a number of questions for Americans and for America’s friends and allies around the world.

Here are a few for America’s friends and allies.

Question.

Is there anyone Obama will protect militarily…anyone that can depend on the American military to respond to an attack on them with force, overwhelming, immediate force?

Answer.

No.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Iranians follow the Russians example and attack Israel that Obama will abandon the Israelis just like he did the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the North Koreans follow the Russians example and attack South Korea that Obama will abandon the South Koreans just like he did the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Chinese follow the Russians example and invade and annex Taiwan that Obama will abandon the Taiwanese just like he abandoned the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that if the Russians choose not to stop with Ukraine and decide to attack other countries that they formerly controlled, that were formerly behind the Iron Curtain, in order to bring them back into their orbit that Obama will abandon them just like he abandoned the Ukrainians?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Does this mean that Obama just told the despots, demagogues, dictators and religious fanatics of the world that they are free to do whatever they want to because he will not intervene militarily no matter what and they therefore have nothing to fear from him, nothing to fear from the United States?

Answer.

Yes.

Here are a few questions for Americans?

Can you sleep soundly in your beds knowing that America’s enemies are much more likely to attack you and your country as a result of Obama’s demonstrated weakness and fecklessness…that he might not even respond with force, immediate, overwhelming force…that they now know for certain that they face no real deterrent?

Answer.

No.

Question.

What message does Obama’s response to Putin’s attack on Ukraine and annexation of the Crimea send to your enemies, send to those who would do you harm, great, great harm?

Answer.

Attack us too, attack us too.

Question.

Should Obama’s proposed budget cuts to the military, budget cuts that would cripple the military and totally compromise the safety and security of Americans and the national security of the United States, be allowed?

Answer.

No.

Question.

As things stand now what will Obama’s legacy be?

Answer.

Ruination and destruction, not only for America and Americans but for the Free World as well.

Question.

Are we in deep, deep trouble because we elected him?

Answer.

Yes.

Question.

Is there any possibility that he will change?

Answer.

None whatsoever.

Question.

Is there any possibility that things will get better with him in office?

Answer.

None whatsoever.

Question.

What are the chances of things getting worse as long as he remains in office?

Answer.

100%.

Question.

What can we do to get rid of him?

Answer.

Rise up collectively and force his resignation or impeachment.

Questions and answers…now all that remains is…action.

Bye-bye Ukraine…Barack, Re: Ukraine Puts Troops on High Alert, Threatens War if Russia Takes Further Military Action, International New York Times, March 2, 2014

March 2nd, 2014

The United States has decided to abandon Ukraine.

That means that any time now there will be a full scale war between Ukraine and Russia.

The scenario is very simple and is unfolding before our eyes.

Russia will continue with the invasion its launched…Ukraine will fight back to maintain her territorial integrity and national sovereignty…she will lose a short, vicious war because her armed forces are no match for Russia’s…at the end she will be dragged back kicking and screaming into the Russian orbit and will find herself under Russian control…at the end she will no longer be a free, independent nation but will be a Russian vassal state instead, which is exactly what Russia wants and exactly why Russia invaded in the first place.

That and because Russia knew it would get away with it.

One thing and one thing only can persuade Russia to change its course.

Armed intervention by the United States.

Nothing else will get Russia to call off the invasion and leave Ukrainians alone. Anyone who thinks otherwise doesn’t understand Russia, doesn’t understand history, doesn’t understand geopolitics and doesn’t understand bullies.

All the threats, all the outrage, all the denunciation, all the gestures by President Obama and other Western leaders are utterly meaningless and won’t stop Russia from doing anything.

Only military might will and the only country with a military strong enough and capable enough to get Russia to back off is the United States.

Well guess what, the United States is not going to intervene militarily. It simply is not going to use its military to keep Russia from taking over Ukraine. Obama truly is an emperor with no clothes and Russia has absolutely nothing to fear from the United States. Russia has a free hand in Ukraine because the only country that can stop it from taking over, won’t.

President Obama is weak and won’t defend Ukraine and Russia knows this and is taking advantage of his weakness to conquer it. Russia took the measure of Obama, found him weak and lacking in strength and substance and decided to march.

That’s what it all boils down to.

Russia is not the only country that has taken the measure of Obama and concluded that he is weak and lacking in strength and substance. America’s enemies, Russia included, all came to that conclusion years ago and have been taking advantage of him ever since. To say that his weakness and lack of strength and substance has placed and is placing America and America’s safety and national security in jeopardy is putting it mildly.

Americans haven’t seen anything yet though. They have a President with no brains or cojones and their enemies are going to make them pay a terrible price for putting him in office…for keeping him in office.

Bye-bye Ukraine.

Barack.

Oh, and here’s a message from me to all of America’s friends and allies around the world.

You’re on your own.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed responsible, not Daniel Pearl, Re: UN Ambassador Samantha Power: “Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability and reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence”, Jihad Watch, February 24, 2014

February 27th, 2014

Daniel Pearl was a reporter for the Wall Street Journal working in Pakistan when he was kidnapped by a group of jihadists calling themselves The National Movement for the Restoration of Pakistani Sovereignty.

He was held captive for nine days and then executed.

One of the group members named Khalid Sheikh Mohammed executed him.

This is the same Khalid Sheikh Mohammed who was one of the most senior members of al-Qaeda for many years and who was the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks in the United States

Among other things.

To say that he has rivers of American blood on his hands is an understatement of massive proportions.

Mohammed slit Pearl’s throat and then decapitated him.

That’s decapitated…as in beheaded…as in cut his head off.

On video.

Which then went viral and was shown all over the world.

Before Pearl died he was forced to read the following statement.

“My name is Daniel Pearl. I’m a Jewish American from Encino, California, U.S.A….My father’s Jewish, my mother’s Jewish, I’m Jewish. My family follows Judaism. We’ve made numerous family visits to Israel.”

Just before his throat was slit he stared into the camera and said “My name is Daniel Pearl, I am an American Jew.”

After which Mohammed slit his throat and cut his head off.

On video.

There is no doubt whatsoever that Mohammed slit his throat and cut his head off because he was American, because he was Jewish and because he was a friend of Israel.

Mostly because he was Jewish however.

No doubt whatsoever.

There is also no doubt whatsoever that as an Islamist…as a believer…as a jihadist… Mohammed felt that slitting his throat and cutting his head off was perfectly legitimate and justifiable.

Which it was.

Which it is.

Which it has been for 1,400 years, ever since Islam first came into existence.

Last weekend United States Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power gave the 2013/2014 Daniel Pearl Memorial Lecture in Los Angeles, after which she sent out the following tweet.

“Daniel Pearl’s story is reminder that individual accountability & reconciliation are required to break cycles of violence.”

What a monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable, utterly disgusting thing to say.

What a monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable, utterly disgusting thing to believe.

Here’s some information for Ms. Power.

Daniel Pearl’s throat was slit and his head was cut off purely and simply because he was American, because he was Jewish and because he was a friend of Israel.

Mostly because he was Jewish however.

In no way was he responsible for his own death, or for the horrific manner in which it occurred.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, aided and abetted by his fellow Islamists…fellow believers…fellow jihadists…and by his Islamic beliefs, was responsible, fully and totally and completely responsible.

Mohammed’s act was savage, inhuman and barbaric and no civilized human being can justify, condone or excuse it. There simply is no way for a civilized human to justify, condone or excuse it under any circumstances.

Period.

Here’s a question for Ms. Power.

Let’s say that a group of jihadists kidnap you because you’re American, hold you captive for nine days, repeatedly rape you (rape being entirely legitimate in Islam) then put you in front of a camera, horrifically murder you and display the video to the world…would you be responsible for your death and the manner in which it occurred?

Of course not.

Could your death and the manner in which it occurred be justified, condoned or excused by civilized human beings?

Of course not.

Given Ms. Power’s monstrous, reprehensible, despicable, unconscionable and utterly disgusting tweet and her track record as an anti-Semite and anti-Israel ideologue, she should be asked to resign…she should be forced to resign if she won’t go on her own.

The American people deserve much, much better.

The American people are much, much better and a person like her representing them at the United Nations diminishes and hurts them, does nothing to serve them or their country.

No Ms. Power, Daniel Pearl wasn’t responsible for his own death.

Khalid Sheikh Mohamed, aided and abetted by his fellow Islamists…his fellow believers…his fellow jihadists, and by his Islamic beliefs, was responsible, fully and totally and completely responsible.

Period.

Israel an apartheid state…nothing could be further from the truth, Re: Tips for countering ‘Israeli Apartheid Week’ on college campuses, Bare Naked Islam, February 23, 2014

Today marks the start of Israeli Apartheid Week 2014.

What is Israeli Apartheid Week?

It is a weeklong anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatefest which takes place on college and university campuses throughout the West. It seeks to convince people that Israel is an apartheid state, that Israelis are the cause of all the maladies which afflict Palestinians and that the lives of Palestinians would improve exponentially if only Israel would leave them to their own devices. It blames Israel for everything Palestinians have to deal with, absolves them of any blame or responsibility for anything, is full of lies and distortions and is extremely dishonest and unbalanced. It demonizes and vilifies Israel and Israelis and casts Palestinians as freedom fighters and paragons of decency and virtue who are constantly victimized by their evil neighbors. Biased, distorted and dead wrong only begin to describe it and it is all of course utter nonsense and completely divorced from history and reality.

Israel an apartheid state…nothing could be further from the truth.

Palestinians freedom fighters, paragons of decency and virtue, blameless victims not responsible for their behavior and activities and lives or for anything that befalls them…what a load of rubbish.

I have written about Israeli Apartheid Week on several occasions over the years and thought it would be instructive if I re-posted an essay I wrote about the 2012 event because the sentiments I expressed then are every bit as relevant, important and dead accurate now as they were two years ago.

More, all things considered.

Here we go.

Israeli Apartheid Week is being foisted on us once again.

Israeli Apartheid Week is not only an affront to unbiased and knowledgeable observers of the Middle East, not only an anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatefest full of positions and statements which have no basis in reality, not only a terrible disservice to Palestinians because the false sense of victimhood it fosters precludes them from taking constructive measures to improve their lives and not only a violation of academic integrity by the universities that allow it to take place because it is very one-sided and unbalanced and contrary, more rational and honest views are either ridiculed, discouraged or not permitted…no, awful and disgraceful as all of this is, it is much more than that. It is a frontal attack on two of our most fundamental, inalienable rights, freedom of speech and freedom of expression.

IAW organizers and participants are not interested in dialogue or the unfettered exchange of ideas. They know that they would come out a distant second if they were challenged and that no person with a sound and open mind would take them seriously. They would be revealed for exactly what they are; ideologues, fascists, religious fanatics, crazies, brainwashed, poorly informed, easily manipulated, unthinking, irrational, bigoted or any combination thereof. That is why anyone who raises his or her voice in protest at an IAW event is harassed and threatened and shouted down and that is why their pronouncements are trite and filled with cliches and hyperbole, or to put it more succinctly, bull…. They have nothing else. They can’t compete so they have to demonize and vilify and prevent others from speaking or otherwise expressing themselves.

Whatever one’s views are on the Middle East as people living in free, democratic, secular societies we have every right to express them in whatever way we see fit. The minute that someone prevents us from doing so and gets away with it is the minute we can no longer call ourselves free and the minute we come closer to having a totalitarian, theocratic state imposed on us. Israeli Apartheid Week brownshirts are attacking our freedom by trying, with some success I might add, to intimidate and shut up anyone who opposes them. We must not let them succeed. Rest assured, if freedom of speech and freedom of expression is lost, a free press, an independent judiciary, freedom of and from religion and all the other hallmarks of our way of life will be too.

Israeli Apartheid Week won’t bring down Israel or raise up Palestinians. The mentality behind it and the bilge it secretes diminish us all and pose a serious threat to our civil liberties however and it is incumbent on each and every one of us to counter its odious, dishonest activities with energy and passion.

There you have it…Israeli Apartheid Week 2014…a weeklong anti-Israel, anti-Semitic hatefest with no basis in reality, past, present or future…just like all the one’s before it.

For those who wish to counter it the article in Bare Naked Islam is well worth a read.

Actually, its well worth a read anyway.

Well worth acting on too.

Israel an apartheid state…nothing could be further from the truth.

Palestinians freedom fighters, paragons of decency and virtue, blameless victims not responsible for their behavior and activities and lives or for anything that befalls them…what a load of rubbish.
