Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. So the Middle East is running out of water? Hmmm, um. What? Oh, that was just me, trying to feel bad. Daniel Pipes casts a fascinating spotlight on an ongoing — and little heralded — water crisis in the Middle East. A ranking Iranian political figure, Issa Kalantari, recently warned that past mistakes leave Iran with water supplies so insufficient that up to 70 percent, or 55 million out of 78 million Iranians, would be forced to abandon their native country for parts unknown. Many facts buttress Kalantari’s apocalyptic prediction: Once […]
Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. But everyone loves to hate Israel….odd how that works out. The headlines in most places were entirely predictable: “UN Says Israel Killed 44 Palestinians in Schools During Gaza War.” That was indeed one finding of a UN report published Monday — but only part of the story. The report also confirmed something Israel’s been saying all along: Hamas stored mortars and other weapons in at least three UN schools during last summer’s war and fired rockets at Israel from two of them. Israel repeatedly made that point during the conflict to explain why it was firing […]
Hat/Tip to Fox News. North Korea starves, rapes, beats, imprisons and murders its own people. China imprisons political dissidents, tortures and kills people, not to mention their “one child policy.” Syria’s rebels use car bombs and rockets to kill civilians. Nigeria allows Boko Haram to run rampant, killing thousands. Columbia has paramilitary groups “chopping up” residents of the port of Buenaventura. I could go on, but really………Israel? What country deserves more condemnation for violating human rights than any other nation on earth? According to the U.N.’s top human rights body, that would be Israel. Last week, Israel was the U.N.’s number […]
Hat/Tip to IOTWReport.com. File this under “About Damned Time!” The Obama administration made a lot of noise over the weekend about its displeasure at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s comments over the future of Palestinian statehood. Even though Netanyahu walked back his comments in an olive branch to the administration, the White House’s negative, threatening rhetoric towards the Jewish State has not diminished; in fact, it has increased. What concerns many lawmakers in the House and the Senate are the administration’s threats to possibly change the level of support that America gives Israel in the United Nations. Historically, the United […]
Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius’ Forum. So despite all the brown-nosing, sucking up, and general, all around ass kissing President Obama has done to the Ayatollah of Iran, he still urges our own kids to join his jihad. Way to go, Obama. On Friday, President Barack Obama slobbered all over himself to come to the aide of the Iranian Mullahs–mostly to spite our Israeli allies. But on the very same day Obama gave the Mullahs his undying love, the Ayatollah urged our own kids to join the world wide movement of violent, Islamist jihad. On Friday, Obama disgorged […]
Israeli-Arabs Increasingly Recognize Israel’s Right To Exist, & Identify As Israeli Arabs – Not Palestinians
In the days leading up to Israel’s March 2014 election, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has said that he no longer supports a Two-State Solution–that laughable albatross that America so persistently, and righteously, hangs around his country’s neck. At one time, Netanyahu identified the problem: Palestine refuses to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist as a nation, but the world sees Israel as an occupier, nevermind the facts. Today, while writing about Palestinian and American sources busing Arabs to the polls to end Netanyahu’s leadership, I found that Israeli-Arabs know a good thing when they see it. First, consider that the […]
Hat/Tip to the Conservative Tribune. “I will stand with them (Muslims) should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” – Barack Obama, The Audacity Of Hope, p. 261 Well it looks like he’s doing just that because his SuperPAC and his State Department has been funneling money and personnel to Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponents in an effort to oust him in the upcoming Israeli elections, in favor of more left wing candidates. And this would of course benefit Hezbollah and the Palestinians. President Barack Obama despises Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with such immense passion that he has been covertly scheming […]
Hat/Tip to Warner Todd Huston at Publius Forum. This is the kind of top quality public servants brought to you via our President, Barack Obama. Obama’s Chicago terrorist has been sentenced to 18 months in prison, authorities in the Windy City announced late last week. No, not his old terrorist, Bill Ayers, his newer terrorist, Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, the woman he hired to work as an ObamaCare “navigator” in Illinois. Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, a terrorist from Jordan, was convicted in Israel for her part in several bombings including one from way back in 1969 that killed two students in a […]
Hat/Tip to Doug Ross @ Journal. Awesome speech by an awesome world leader. 20. For those who believe that Iran threatens the Jewish state, but not the Jewish people, listen to Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, Iran’s chief terrorist proxy. He said: If all the Jews gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of chasing them down around the world. 19. Iran’s regime is not merely a Jewish problem, any more than the Nazi regime was merely a Jewish problem. The 6 million Jews murdered by the Nazis were but a fraction of the 60 million […]
Hat/Tip to the New York Times. Benjamin Netanyahu is the type of leader that we need in this country. He is not afraid to call his enemy by their name, he is not afraid to stand up to those who threaten his country, and he puts the safety and security of his country ahead of all else. Our President is the type of leader who puts the safety and… Our President is the type of leader who is willing to stand up to… *sigh* Our President plays golf. . . .
BREAKING: Kuwaiti Newspaper Reports Obama Threatened To Shoot Down Israeli Planes If They Attacked Iran’s Nuclear Capabilities
Obama threatened to shoot down IAF Iran strike, because he wants Iran to get The Bomb The president who bombs everybody vetoed an Israeli first strike against Iran’s nuclear weapons facilities. Not only that, he threatened to shoot down IAF planes if they tried. In a shocking report, a Kuwaiti newspaper is claiming that President Barack Obama once threatened to shoot down Israeli jets if they went through with a plan to target Iranian nuclear sites. Citing “well-placed sources,” Al-Jarida claims that sometime in 2014, the Israeli government made plans to attack Iran when they heard that the United […]
Hat/Tip to Fox News. Looks like John Boehner finally grew a pair and took action to directly challenge President Obama, albeit in a round-about manner. Speaker of the House, John Boehner invited Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to speak at a joint session of Congress. And he did so without consulting with the White House. It seemed to be in response to Obama’s State of the Union speech, in which he warned Congress against new sanctions on Iran to halt their development of nuclear weapons. Boehner has asked Netanyahu to talk about the threats posed by Iran and ISIS. […]
Hat/Tip to Michael Wilner at The Jerusalem Post. The latest “talks” aimed at Iran abandoning it’s plans for obtaining nuclear weapons are nothing more than a sham. “Iran’s not being asked to dismantle the nuclear infrastructure,” the Israeli official said, having seen the proposal before the weekend. “Right now what they’re talking about is something very different. They’re talking about Ayatollah Khamenei allowing the P5+1 (the US, United Kingdom, France, Russia, China and Germany) to save face.” It seems that the world community is only worried about not looking bad, instead of keeping nuclear weapons out of the hands of […]
The Joe Biden, Bill Clinton, and Elizabeth Warren Edition VP Joe Biden colorfully slandered Jews yesterday with an offensive medieval stereotype. “My son as attorney general, the year in Iraq, came back and that’s one of the things that he finds is, was most in need, when he was over there in Iraq for a year, people would come to him and talk about what was happening at home, in terms of foreclosures, in terms of bad loans that were being, I mean these Shylocks who took advantage of these women and men while overseas.” The reference is from Shakespeare’s […]
Hat/Tip to Leon Leonard The Israeli Defense Forces are responsible for defending their homeland from surrounding Arab states 650 times the size of Israel. They can ill afford to be unprepared for self defense, and this level of readiness extends from the highest sophistication of their Iron Dome Missile Defense down to basic self defense. Watch this video and be prepared to be amazed at this 20 year old woman as she instructs the IDF in self defense. Post by The Jewish Standard.
This is THE best video I’ve seen to explain the ins and outs of the Israeli borders, how they came to be and how important they are to the survival of Israel. Ever wonder why Israel doesn’t just withdraw to its 1948 borders, approved by the UN. Wouldn’t life be simpler? Wouldn’t the wars end? This video, by the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, made prior to the current conflict in Gaza, sums up the perspective opposing withdrawal from the land won in the 1967 Six Day War quite well. . .
