On April tenth Breitbart.com's National Security section reported on the evacuation of 4,640 Indians (2,900 by air), and almost 960 foreign citizens of 41 countries from Yemen which is now in the midst of a fierce war. The Indian evacuation finished that Friday. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs reported in the New Delhi-based Asian News International (ANI), that “the evacuation of Indian nationals from Yemen is finally over and the Indian embassy there will be shut soon.” America did something very different, evacuating their embassy and military personal, closing the embassy, and then telling American citizens not affiliated with the embassy to find their own way to safety.
America had no plans to help Americans, and in fact according to the Breitbart report encouraged Americans who wanted to leave to turn to the Indians and other sources. It seems that the State Department is still not up to the task as twenty Americans were reported on April 24 to have heard nothing from the State Department but had gotten out of Yemen on Wednesday to a nearby African country via a flight on a Russian airline, claims to the contrary by Marie Harf, State Department spokesman, (who inspired the new verb, “harfing”). But like her boss, and his boss, one can generally tell when she is lying (her lips are moving). One Yemeni-American said that he kept receiving emails that said basically, “find your way out.”
I have never been more ashamed of my country. India is still classified by most as a third world country. Where is America? America seems to have offered up all its decency on the altar of delusional unreality in the name of who knows what – political correctness perhaps.
The poisonous snake must bedefanged. What are we waiting for the nuking of Tel Aviv or are own backyard? Inexcusably, we Americans have stuck our heads in the sand permitting an apocalyptic and implacable foe to run amok. We seem “oblivious” that nuclear weapons even exist. Such behavior has greatly alarmed our foremost security expert Admiral Ace Lyons who exhorts our feckless leadership to "Strike Iran".
FRATERNIZING WITH THE ENEMY
It’s a waste of time to sanction Iran. The entire world has known this for many years. Let’s call it our sanction insanity syndrome. Everyone knows sanctions are a farce except for our useless, good for nothing and corrupt leadership. Their efforts to sanction and negotiate must be exposed for what they really are – fraternizing with the enemy. Here is the reason why sanctions are worthless against Iran.
(Virginia State motto, a rallying cry to be always against tyranny)
By Tabitha Korol
Contrary to the Virginia state motto, The Virginia State Bar (VSB) has joined the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign of the tyrannical Muslim Brotherhood (MB); its president, Kevin A. Martingayle, a Virginia Beach attorney, cancelled the Mid-Year Legal Seminar planned for Jerusalem in November. The boycott is a non-violent war strategy, a means of denunciation and isolation consistently directed against Israel, the only democratic state in the Middle East.
Martingayle criticized Israel for its “unacceptable discriminatory policies and practices pertaining to border security,” with particular concerns that VSB’s Arab/Muslim/Palestinian members would be questioned more extensively. Surely members of the Bar understand that security is fundamental to civilization, and that all travelers are subject to a measure of scrutiny upon entry to any country. Martingayle cannot be unaware that Israel’s Declaration of Independence ensures “complete equality of social and political rights to all, irrespective of religion, race, or sex…” The dissenters/petitioners would also benefit from Israel's security arrangements unless, of course, they support the BDS movement or are found to be associated with Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR, an unindicted co-conspirator of the Holy Land Foundation trial), Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), the Muslim Student Association/Hamas (MSA), or any of a number of affiliated terrorist organizations that are dedicated to Israel’s destruction – the same groups that cry “Death to America.”
Jihad comes from the Arabic verb, jihada, meaning “exerted” (struggled), but it is defined as “holy war.” Although jihad is usually associated with violence, as we learn of Islamic terrorists who carry out horrific acts against non-Muslims, Israel and the West, Islamists may battle nonbelievers clandestinely and peacefully – by means of boycott.
Interestingly, in 1945, an Arab boycott was formally declared by the newly created Arab League Council – years before Israel’s statehood. “Jewish products and manufactured goods shall be considered undesirable to the Arab countries.” All Arab institutions, businesses, and individuals were “to refuse to deal in, distribute, or consume Zionist products or manufactured goods.” After 1948, the boycott prohibited direct and indirect trade between Israel and Arab nations. The intent was to isolate Israel from the world, damage her economy, and render her incapable of defending herself. Worldwide Jewry was also targeted.
We’ve seen the way the Associated Press skews its commentaries, and this latest approach to delegitimize the State of Israel is to challenge her democratic values amid an expanse of dictatorships. After Benjamin Netanyahu’s re-election to his post of Prime Minister, Dan Perry, AP’s Middle East editor, writes, “with the occupation of the West Bank grinding on toward the half-century mark, and with Netanyahu’s election-week statement that no change is imminent, hard questions arise.” His question and answer are, “Is Israel a democracy? The answer is not so straightforward.”
Editor Perry’s premise is an immediate indictment against Israel, crafted to set the reader’s mind in motion to join in the attack. Surely, he calculatedly omits the history that explains why these Arabs (now renamed Palestinians) remain in the West Bank. Not only did he fail to recap that it was because Israel was attacked by Jordan and won that war that she acquired this territory, but he also excluded the fact that Israel offered land for peace on eleven separate occasions. The Palestinian leaders emphatically rejected the idea. Their strategy was to keep these Palestinians as pawns for as long as it takes to change world opinion and paint Israel as the aggressor and punishing “occupier,” until they succeed in hijacking all of Israel for Islam.
Thus, these Palestinians became the world’s eternal ‘victims” of oppression, set up to receive perpetual support monies from the United Nations, Europe, America, and Israel, even as the original victims have long been replaced by succeeding generations. Meanwhile, the new Palestinians wage evermore-creative wars against Israel, including increasingly lethal rocket and human attacks; and myriad propagandist accusations of apartheid, illegal housing and roads; accusing Israelis of causing floods, droughts, and shortages. One effective accusation was the Jenin “Massacre that wasn’t,” when the majority of 52 dead were combatants, and Doctors Without Borders confirmed that Palestinians had disinterred old corpses for authentic scenography.
Perry doesn’t remind his readers that just as non-citizens’ living outside of America have no voting rights within America, so non-citizen Palestinians’ living outside of Israel have no voting rights in Israel. The two million Palestinian Arabs who are citizens of Israel, of course, have the same voting rights as other Israelis, Jew and non-Jew alike. If these Palestinian Arabs ever show themselves to be civilized enough to lay down their weapons and seek peace, and to create their own democratic state, they may one day be able to vote for their own leadership. Unfortunately, Palestinian parents and teachers are coaching their small children to hate and to kill – to even practice beheading skills on dolls. Surveys show that the majority of Muslims worldwide prefers Islamic law, Sharia, which is antithetical to democracy, so that these longsuffering people will be more harshly ruled than ever by their authoritarian clergy and perhaps never experience an authentic election.
Easter is a day of hope, hope for eternal life, and hope for the future. But there is hope on the political front as well - elections in Europe will be in the news starting very soon and it looks promising for the Euro-skeptic parties and movements which are all, or nearly all conservative to a greater or lesser extent and/or have a counterjihad agenda. Among those ready to transform the face of “the old countries” are the Ukip in Britain, PVV in the Netherlands, Front National in France, PEDIGA in Germany (and soon to be further afield) and Lega Norte in Italy – in all of these places and beyond there is a growing distrust of the European Union, a growing worry about the Islamization of Europe, a greater interest in making countries work and a healthy interest in building a future of freedom and a prosperity. Thanks in large part to the internet around the world the man in the street is better informed than ever before and sees himself as a citizen not a subject ( a very American, very modern idea), and among the things he understands is that the elites have made a mess of things and that it is time for a change.
Now word comes that there is hope for greater freedom in the future even in Latin America where AP (yes, that AP) recently reported from Sao Paulo, Brazil that the latest star in the protest (by 200,000 people, some protest have been larger) against the Brazilian Workers’ Party and President Dilma Rousseff is a 19 year old college dropout named Kim Kataguiri, leader of Brazil’s youthful libertarians and conservatives. Having read free-market economists Milton Friedman and Ludwig Von Mises according to the article, he sees that the answer to many of Brazil’s problems lies in the fact that it Brazil has not taken the advice of these sages. The article was amazing in that it was published at all, the AP is no friend of the right and indeed is pretty far to the left, but other than the almost expected snide remarks about the Koch brothers it was remarkable fair.
Rousseff, who was inaugurated for her second term on January 1, 2011, is tied to a major scandal regarding corruption and Petrobras, a semi-public energy corporation (with ties to George Soros, it received a rather generous loan under Obama). Due to this scandal Rousseff has been the focus of numerous protests and the Petrobras scandal isn’t the only complaint the Brazilians have against her. Kataguira began his political activism when he posted satirical videos on YouTube which mocked her. She narrowly beat her opponent who is more conservative and market friendly. Despite being elected the last time around her approval rating has fallen 13 percent in the last year, a record low, and while Kataguira and others would like to see her impeached this seems unlikely as there is no evidence linking her to the Petrobras scandal. However, the timing is good for conservative/libertarian forces in Brazil as there will be an election for her replacement in 2015.
The tempest that has recently blown over the US-Israel relations has one unique source, the personality and far-leftist ideology of one man, President Obama : his narcissistic belief and arrogant unilateral acts that are anathema to the American political system, his intolerance to dissenting views that brook no dissent from the other co-equal branch of government, the US Congress, or from a foreign Prime Minister such as Netanyahu, his disdain of the US Constitution and his violation of its most cherished tenets, and his vindictive and punishing reactions against those who dare infringe upon his dictatorial fiats, like a monarch insulted by his vassals who committed the crime of "lese-majeste."
As many pundits observed, Obama's "temper tantrums" against Netanyahu were caused by the prime Minister successes ,first in his brilliant speech loudly acclaimed in the Congress by both Republicans and Democrats, and later, in his resounding victory in Israeli elections that will allow him to continue as Prime Minister, an anathema to Obama who spared no effort to defeat him, even using taxpayer money and sending political hacks to Israel in that endeavor , which is a gross and ugly interference in a foreign country's elections.
Before the Israeli elections, Obama unleashed his attack-dogs minions to launch a campaign of vilification against the Prime Minister of Israel, the only real US ally in the disintegrating Middle-East. They called him names like "chickenshit," amid accusations of "spying," and ominous threats such as "Israel will pay a heavy price," the US may abandon Israel at the UN," etc.
This abominable treatment of a beleaguered ally, surrounded by ferocious enemies sworn to its destruction, was never inflicted on US enemies, not even on the decapitators of ISIS.
The International Institute for Strategic Studies claims that 70% of all armed conflict fatalities in the WORLD last year involved Muslims. Yes, 70%; and in 2013 there were almost 12,000 terrorists “incidents” in the world. Not all Muslims are violent, but a high percentage of the world’s violence is perpetrated by Muslims and is sanctioned by their religion, with a high percentage of the victims being Muslim themselves. In the forefront of fighting this violence are two tiny countries, Israel and the Netherlands (the USA and UK are currently passive at best about counter-jihad). The purpose of this article is to draw attention to the valiant work of some of the leading counter-jihadist in the Netherlands. The reality though is that it is not the country but her citizens who are leading the charge in the Netherlands where the establishment denies that Islam or Muslims are the problem, instead Dutch authorities have largely focused on attacking those who criticize Islam. This article was written in honor of Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s new book, “Heretic: Why Islam Needs a Reformation” which is being published on March 24, 2015 by Harper Collins.
Pim Fortuyn (1948-2002), Dutch politician, civil servant, sociologist, author, columnist, and professor was murdered 6 May 2002 in Hilversum, North Holland by Volkert van der Graff (an “old Dutch” native) who claimed that he wanted to stop Fortuyn from using Muslims as scapegoats. Fortuyn’s murder was the beginning of widespread Dutch (and by extension Western) awareness of the problems inherent in Islam. His murder was a precursor to that of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh (1957-2004). There is a direct line between Fortuyn’s murder and the rise and persecution of Geert Wilders and his Party for Freedom (PPV). All of them proclaimed the danger of Islam to the Netherlands and to the rest of Western civilization. The names of these four: Fortuyn, van Gogh, Hirsi Ali, and Wilders, are sometimes linked as their stories intersect with each other, and they all have been prominent in the fight against Islam although each in a different way. It began with the assassination of Fortuyn, the first Dutch political assassination (except during WWII) since 1672. The murderer of Pim Fortuyn was released from prison last year.
Fortuyn’s stands on multiculturalism, immigration and Islam led to his being referred to as “far-right” despite his rejection of that label and despite his sexual orientation. He was a Marxist initially but sometime before 1992 switched to the Labour Party. In August of 2001 he was quoted as saying that “I am also in favor of a cold war with Islam. I see Islam as an extraordinary threat, as a hostile religion.” But what really galvanized attention was his calling Islam “backwards” and his call for banning immigration to the Netherlands from Islamic countries. He had left the Labour Party by then and joined the “Livable Netherlands” (Party) – this was prior to the Dutch election of 2002. His call for a ban on Islamic immigration in February 2002 resulted in his being rejected by “Livable Netherlands” and his founding of Pim Fortuyn List (LPF) just a few days later taking many “Livable Netherlands” members with him. So the intolerant left in the media and elsewhere used this as a reason to express their tolerance.
Nick says that he is both excited and humbled by the opportunity. We have always considered him a natural choice as director, because of his great talent but also because he cares so deeply about the project.
Nick has said that he feels a great responsibility to our many investors, and is determined to answer and explore three primary aspects to this story: what really happened in that anonymous brick building in West Philadelphia, why was it allowed to happen, and most importantly, why did no one want to talk about it after it happened?
Some of Nick's first activities will be to cast actors, select locations and create the production schedule. An increased budget will allow us a longer shooting schedule, more locations and stronger actors. A greater budget will also let us tell more about the thousands of lives that were lost at the hand of Gosnell, and the redemption that was miraculously experienced by others.
We plan to shoot in the summer, so In order to confirm our cast, our locations, and our schedule, we need to raise $500,000 by May 14th, 2015.
They present themselves as the religion of peace, but they are intolerant, eager to crush truth and the noncompliant. They will force their peace upon you, like it or not. Their methods are usually violence beyond one’s imagination, so that the only ones who achieve complete peace are those who have been killed quickly, not burned, or hanged, crucified, beheaded, made to endure hundreds of lashes, buried waist high and stoned to death, thrown from a cliff, succumbed to infection from acid or barbaric Female Genital Mutilation, having one’s limbs chopped off, or kidnapped for sexual slavery. Add to these Boko Haram’s cooking or burying people alive, and realize these have been done to as many as 400 million over 1400 years.
Although most of this brutality remains prevalent in the Middle East and Africa, a new conquest has appeared on the horizon. In an interview with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Nurat Nazarov, aka Abu Kholidi Kulobi, a jihadist under the (Islamic State), said he will build mosques in Native American territories and “live with them according to the laws of Allah” (Shari’a).
What can we expect to happen with American Indians? We can predict their fate. Through their successful strategy of deceit, Islam will replace one culture with another, and the proud Native American will become a craven servant of Allah. If there is no violence, then Islamic holy war will be waged against their holy sites. As we learned from the Israeli experience, Muslims will create a false narrative to delegitimize the people to their land. Their historic sites will be destroyed, as were the tombs of Biblical Jonah, Daniel, and Joseph, and the numerous layers of Jewish civilization, still producing items that bear witness to the Hebrews’ centuries of connection to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Natan Sharansky described the excavation as “the largest archaeological catastrophe to mankind.” The Dome of the Rock atop Judaism’s holiest site was built by Caliph Abd al-Malik to commemorate his conquest of the capital and, most importantly, to erase Jewish history.
For the same reason, the Taliban have demolished the thousands-of-years-old Buddha in Afghanistan and mausoleums in Timbuktu, Mali (all UNESCO World heritage sites), tens of thousands of Hindu temples together with tons of artifacts, the loss of a people’s past. Islamic jihadists are also bulldozing and looting Iraq’s world-famous ancient cities of Nimrud and Hatra, with their ancient carved-stone reliefs; Assyrian statues; artifacts in a Mosul museum; and thousands of books and manuscripts in Mosul’s library, to eradicate pre-Islamic civilization. This mindset was also the motive behind the 9/11/01 bombing of the World Trade Centers, to destroy the symbol of American achievement and reverse Islam’s trend of decline since their defeat in the Battle of Vienna, 9/11/1683.
