Almost two years of "negotiations," the final "deal" appears as a total surrender of the Obama government to all the demands of the Ayatollahs who boasted that all their red lines have been met . The deal will put them on the path to become a nuclear power, not as a pariah but legitimized by the US and Europe; they will continue to enrich uranium and to develop their ICBM program ; the lifting of the sanctions will give them 150 billion dollars to improve their economy and their military capabilities which include, of course, strengthening Hizbollah, Hamas, and other purveyors of terror in the troubled Middle-East.
The bazaar merchants have trounced the feeble and naïve negotiators led by the team Obama-Kerry. You would think they have defeated America militarily and are now dictating their terms, as the allies in Versailles with Germany or McArthur in Japan. Years ago, Obama asked the Iranian mullahs to "unclench their fists " and normalize relations with America. They didn't but he did; he opened his hands, he raised his hands and said "Don't shoot ! We give you what you want."
The flaws in the preliminaries:
Some observers think that the original sin was not to limit the negotiators to US vs Iran but to include what is called P5+1 with Russia and China a sort of fifth column siding with Iran. This was, indeed, a flaw, but a deliberate one, not a mistake. I think the Obama team knew in advance that they wanted a deal at any price, and intentionally enlarged the forum so that they could use the "other partners" as excuses for the multiple concessions they knew they had to make . How many times we heard Kerry say, apologetically, that "we are not alone;we had no choice if we wanted to keep our partners..."
Another flaw was pointed out by James Jeffrey , former ambassador to Iraq, who said after the "Interim agreement:" Those who studied the art of negotiating found two big mistakes that should be avoided :never show that you are desperate to obtain a deal and never take off the table a credible threat of use of military force if the talks collapse." The shrewd Iranians knew that Obama was desperate for a deal and swore off the use of force, and they ratched up their demands.
America has sixty days to prevent Iran from crossing the nuclear threshold. We cannot count on Congress unless they are forced to act by the people through a popular our cry.To stop Obama”s veto we must overwhelm congress with our demand, this is the only way forward
They did it with Presidents Clinton and Bush when millions of citizens called their Congressional representatives and it resulted in changing their positions.
While promoting his 9-9-9 tax policy, Cain was asked, "Do you think there is a will in Washington that these politicians will put their careers on the line to do the right thing?" And he replied, "Not without the will of the people, without a massive activist grassroots movement from the bottom up. They are not going to do it from the inside. When they feel the heat, they will see the light. We the people must be the heat. We have to take on the Goliath."
To the best of my knowledge, when I was growing up everyone had a pushke, a tin can that served as an alms box. I remember two types, cylindrical and squared, always wrapped in paper with a Star of David, and a coin slot at the top. Each Sabbath (Friday) evening, we dropped coins into it, and when it was full, we would bring it to the local synagogue to be given to Jewish groups that would somehow help the Jews in Europe.
We trusted the Jewish Federations, but just as our world has changed and become unrecognizable, so have the charitable organizations upon which we once depended. Now we must stop and scrutinizetheir websites to learn if they are, indeed, carrying out the philanthropy they promised, as some have surely deviated from their original mission. All too often, they bear Jewish or Zionist names, but the aid flows to Muslims in the name of multiculturalism and compassion while those immigrants flood our shores in the name of jihad – to establish Islam and Sharia law throughout the free world. Of course, they are not alone. The Saudi Prince has just pledged $32 billion to advance the Islamization of America, to be fashioned after the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that produced Common Core.
The Jewish Coalition for Syrian Refugees in Jordan, for example, is the umbrella organization for organizations such as the ADL, AJC, JCPA, Jewish Federations of North America, and others that work to bring Muslims to America, to accomplish their Qur’anic obligation of jihad. A group once known as the Hebrew Immigration American Society, has since dropped “Hebrew” from its name. HIAS now uses Jewish donations to resettle Syrian Muslims in America. US Together is resettling Afghan and Syrian refugees in Toledo, Ohio, which already features a mosque, shopping center, large apartment complex, Arabic charter school, and a huge employer, the University of Toledo, within walking distance.
Anti-Semitism is growing among German Muslim students. Following Koranic teachings, the early childhood brainwashing, and school books rife with politically biased indoctrination, these students openly declared that they will kill Jews, specifically threatening Max Moses Bonifer, student spokesman for the school system in Offenbach, Germany, a city of more than 16,000 Muslims. Teenage students in Landsberg, near Leipzig, were reported to be using Nazi slogans, and greeting “Heil Hitler,” with some sporting Hitlerian moustaches. Yet, despite the increase in anti-Semitism, Muslim and other immigrant students were exempted from partaking in the concentration camp visits required with the Holocaust educational programs.
”Severe intolerance and hatred does not happen overnight,” explains Dr. Tawfik Hamid, himself under threat from his co-religionists for teaching a peaceful understanding of Islam. "The indoctrination process, incremental and subtle, occurs in three stages – hatred, suppression of conscience, and desensitization to or acceptance of violence." It is completed when the formerly young and innocent are capable of violence without remorse, no different than the Muslims who attacked synagogues in Germany after Israel’s “Operation Protective Edge” against Hamas, or the Nazis who participated in the Kristallnacht pogrom of November 10, 1938.
The hate and intolerance of the Koran is reinforced during prayers five times daily. Beginning in early childhood, toddlers are taught to behead dolls, and young men delight in the worst animal cruelty that Australians have ever witnessed being done to their exported cattle. Films from Gaza show Palestinians “kneecapping” the cattle, stabbing their eyes, and hacking their throats open on the streets. Severe animal suffering precedes the slaughter of animals for the celebration of Eid Al-adha or Feast of Sacrifice (it also generates an extraordinary cash windfall for some of Pakistan's most dangerous militant groups).
A few days after Pope Francis recognized the "State of Palestine," he honored the "Chairman of the Palestinian Authority" Mahmoud Abbas, in a ceremony at the Vatican, and called him "the Angel of Peace," thus adding insult to injury. He also insulted History twice:
First, because First there is no "State of Palestine" to recognize, and may never will be ,due to the perennial refusal of the Palestinian leaders to accept a Jewish state in their midst and to agree to the necessary compromises. The fallacy that Israel is solely responsible for achieving peace in the Mid-East has been debunked by the successive peace offers made by the Israeli Prime Ministers Rabin, Barak , and Olmert, each one "improving" on his predecessor by taking more risks, and all strongly endorsed by an American president. It took the Vatican more than forty years to recognize the State of Israel after its birth in 1948. So what's the rush to recognize a non-existent state of "Palestine"and add more confusion to the mix?
Second, Abbas is certainly not a man of peace, let alone an "angel of peace," with its strange theological connotations.Maybe the Pope doesn't know, but he is surrounded by a host of experts and advisers who should know, or can research, the biography of a man the Pope intended to praise and glorify. I am sure the Pontiff does not want to disregard the injunction of the greatest of the biblical prophets, Isaiah, who denounced those " who call evil good and call good evil..." A little effort at learning the truth would have uncovered many non-angelic and non-peace-generating actions .
Suffice it to cite here two of them: Abbas wrote an academic thesis, a Ph.D. no less, in Soviet Moscow Lumumba University, denying the Holocaust ,accusing the "Zionists" of collaborating with the Nazis, and at the same time "deciding" that the number of Jewish victims of the Holocaust was "only" 300,000 ,not six millions. He also planned and funded the Munich massacre of 1972 and the murder of eleven Israeli athletes. Abbas earned the moniker of "moderate" only in comparison with Hamas, the more radical terrorist organization that has defeated him electorally and militarily, chased him away from Gaza, and is now a partner in his "government," leaving him with practically no power , except in the imagination of the Western leaders and now...of the Pope.
This admission should come as no surprise to anyone even tangentially familiar with the voluminous amount of essays and articles that Dr. Chesler has written on the subject over the last 13 years, donning an impressive variety of hats. As an astute political analyst, researcher and investigative journalist, she has honed these skills in her quest to offer her reader a meticulous examination of a panoply of hot button geo-political issues pertaining to Israel and the Jewish people.
In this anthology-style compendium that contains the corpus of her work in non-redacted form, Chesler prodigiously confronts the seemingly eternal scourge of global anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism, the pernicious nature of radical Islam, the proliferation of visceral Jew hatred and incessant Israel bashing on university campuses, the exposure of the most egregious forms of propaganda in films and books, the truth about the nefarious agenda of multicultural relativism and critiques the role of the left-liberal media in creating the "perfect storm."
Chesler throws down the gauntlet and debunks the "Big Lies" in a brutally honest manner. Crafting cogent arguments with the trademark depth and aplomb that has come to define her writing since 1972, she takes no hostages.
As she takes us on a sojourn that unravels the "slow motion holocaust" that is being perpetrated against the Jew but nary acknowledged or even discussed in "polite circles," Chesler explains that this cognitive war against the Jewish nation is predicated on a corruption of the truth. Fueled by unsavory alliances between the denizens of the leftist/progressive camp and radical Jihadists of all stripes, anti-Zionism (which is tantamount to anti-Semitism, says Chesler) is no longer considered an odious worldview but one that smacks of a perverse sense of moral rectitude; straight out of an Orwellian-style groupthink salon..
The mission statement of the Central Reform Congregation avows community, diversity, and commitment for a vibrant, Jewish presence in their city, St. Louis, Missouri, but specific Jewish issues and Israel are not addressed. There is concern for a broad swath of social issues, although none to address Jewish survival and the ongoing, increasing threat of anti-Semitism by Islam and the socialist/communist Left. Rather, the congregants reach out to Muslims whose dedication to jihad (religious holy war) threatens Jewish and Christian existence; the Koran dictates jihad for every Muslim and death for every infidel.
Jihad seeks to enforce Sharia worldwide, which includes curtailing our speech (for starters), revising our educational system (strongly underway with history textbooks that whitewash Islam and relegate America, Judaism and Christianity to a few insignificant pages); killing the infidels and harshly treating their own, and much more. Why does the rabbi deem these crucial issues so unimportant to the people she purports to represent, and why is there no platform to protect minorities and women from this xenophobic ideology? The Jews, with their 100% literacy rate and 78% idiocy rate at the ballot box, advocate for their own destruction when they ignore Islamic totalitarianism and its ambition to establish a global caliphate. Jews are kept so severely uninformed, that they facilitate our transition to a totalitarian regime.
So many Americans are completely heads-in-the-sand unacquainted with the Muslim Brotherhood (MB):
its influence in our government – supporting Islamic groups worldwide, including foreign mosque construction;
its connection with our overwhelming illegal-immigrant resettlement programs;
its support of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) campus rallies (some violent) that harass Jewish students and preach boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East;
the “humanitarian aid” sent to UNRWA, which is diverted to constructing terror tunnels, supplying weaponry to Gaza terrorists, building homes for suicide bombers’ families;
the propaganda machine that teaches hate and beheading in Islamic schools, and creates propagandist films of massacres that never happened (as in Gaza and Jenin);
financing CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations) outreach, deceptive public relations, and providing revised book donations to libraries and schools;
the MB cruelty against even their own coreligionists that Egypt has come to recognize and oust, that Norway is expelling, and that Angola has banned;
and its seduction of those who have turned from and against their Jewish backgrounds – the Stockholm Syndrome, when victimized Jews turn to caring about others’ rights more than their own, some deliberately supporting their enemy.
Instead of hearing a broad range of respectable speakers, the congregation attendees hear from the highly disreputable J Street, Jewish Voice for Peace, Rabbis for Human Rights, and others supported by George Soros, who, greatly influenced by Nazism, Marxism and globalism, has been perverted to despise his heritage.
Jay Michaelson, contributing editor to the Forward, holds a position of unearned, unwarranted, and undeserved influence. Although he writes for a Jewish newspaper, he fails to inform his readers that Islam is the enemy of Israel, the Jewish people and, in fact, all of America, and makes judgments that work against their survival. He would benefit by first reviewing facts: By unanimous vote in 1922, the League of Nations set a precedent at the San Remo Conference that cannot be overturned or ignored. After World War I and the division of the Ottoman Empire, the League legally gave Israel and surrounding Palestinian territory to the then-14 million Jews living there and in the Diaspora. Palestine was declared the Jewish “reconstituted homeland” on April 24, 1920. The Jews were always referred to as Palestinians during the British Mandate, before which there were never Palestinians or a Palestinian country.
International law was confirmed by the British Mandate, the San Remo Peace Conference and the League of Nations. Two years later, in 1922, the League of Nations of 51 countries unanimously ratified the British Mandate. This official documentation stands recognized as legitimate international law today and has never been superseded or replaced and is still binding.
Michaelson is advocating for Israel’s destruction, based on the Islamic Genocide Plan. With only a few key strokes on the keyboard, one can easily bring up a plethora of facts to verify the Islamic plans to annihilate Israel and the West. A brief selection of quotes from the HAMAS Charter (1988) and infamous Islamists follow:
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.
