The Democrats have removed reference to God—specifically, to God-given rights—from the Democratic Party Platform. They’ve also removed recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This is hugely important, and not for the reasons that most people think. The first is not just an expression of secularism, which has been integral to the Democratic Party for decades. It’s a full embrace of Rousseau, and a … Continue reading What Has Charlotte to Do with Jerusalem?
Let’s see: some groups with a history of supporting terrorism against Israel, and with close ties to Hamas (and maybe even Barack Obama, by way of Bill Ayers and Code Pink), organize a flotilla of ships filled with heavily armed “peace activists,” many of them members of terrorist organizations, who sing songs glorifying the slaughter of Jews, refuse Israel’s offer to be permitted to take … Continue reading The Big Lie
Hugh Fitzgerald over at Jihad Watch is amazed at the cluelessness of the people in charge of Middle East policy in Washington: I’m amazed — aren’t you? — that more than eight years after the 9/11/2001 attacks we still have people in Washington who do not have a grasp of Islam, do not understand what Islam has to do with the Arab war on Israel, … Continue reading Amazement
Barack Obama evidently plans to endorse the Saudi peace plan—recognition of Israel in exchange for withdrawal to pre-1967 borders. That would give the Golan Heights back to Syria and split Jerusalem. Since “land for peace” has worked so well before…. Continue reading Another Middle East Peace Plan?
Joe Biden points out something that ought to concern us all: “Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. … Continue reading “The closest thing to an insight Biden has ever had”
Caroline Glick gets to the essence of the incoherence of what Obama says about Israel: His repeated assertions of his commitment to Israel’s security were repeatedly contradicted by the policies he wishes to adopt if elected. On the one hand he opposes permitting Iran to acquire nuclear weapons, but on the other hand, he insists that the way to make this happen is to sit … Continue reading More Obama Contradictions
John Bolton reflects my thinking exactly. Israel will attack Iran if Obama wins, between November and January 20. They believe—correctly, in my view—that Obama will tilt U.S. policy heavily against Israel and refuse to cooperate in any such attack. If McCain wins, they may attack, or may wait to work with McCain. …former US Ambassador to the United Nations, John Bolton, said he believes Israel … Continue reading Obama, Peacemaker?
Israel is set to release savage killers in exchange for bodies. I hope they also release teams of assassins to follow and eliminate them. Or, better yet, give Hezbollah their bodies. Fair is fair. Continue reading Sickening
That’s how Jon Randal describes the bloggers who exposed the “death” of Muhammad al-Dura as a sham. Anne-Elisabeth Moutet asks how Charles Enderlin and French 2 TV perpetrated a fraud, and finds a culture of unaccountability and closing ranks that has little interest in the truth. Continue reading “Vindictive pressure groups interfering with news organizations”
Caroline Glick, as always, keeps her eye on the ball, noting the importance and positive implications of the recent Iraq-Iran summit. Continue reading Reshaping the Middle East
