Middle East Explained: Southern Style
A True Southerner understands and sympathizes with the circumstances of Israeli Jews living in the Middle East. Southerners completely understand the concept of property rights and the Rule of Law. This is why most of us just do not support a “Two State Solution” as the Solution. Lemme break it down for you, Southern style: Let’s say you live next door to a couple of | Read More »
Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress: a Reinforcement, not a Renegotiation
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to a joint session of the U.S. Congress for the second time today (and for the first time in fifteen years), fresh off a meeting with President Obama on Friday, Obama’s Middle Eastern address Thursday, and dueling weekend speeches between the two leaders at AIPAC. The first few minutes were well-used defining the scope of the current fight against | Read More »
A historical perspective on why Obama is wrong about Israel
…Netanyahu is correct. What Obama is asking is for him to risk the survival of his entire nation, and he’s right to take what some are calling a “defiant” tone here.
It is almost unprecedented to expect the victor of a war to return territories won in the conflict, especially when such lands are obtained from an aggressor and viewed as strategically essential territories for future defense.
In the entire history of human civilization on this planet, I’m aware of one country, just one, that was victorious in war and then voluntarily gave up conquered territory: The United States.
After World War II, America not only agreed to allow Germany and Japan to retain their independence, but also supported a significant portion of their rebuilding through the Marshall Plan and related programs.
Note, however, that we didn’t call up Hitler in 1943 and try to “negotiate” peace. We fought on land, sea, and air until the German military could take no more. We did not stop fighting until Hitler had committed suicide and the Germans had officially and formally surrendered.

President Obama Again Demonstrates his Utter Ignorance of the Israel-Palestine Situation
President Obama addressed the nation – nay, the WORLD! – today on the subject of the “Arab Spring” events in the Middle East and North Africa, on the death of Osama bin Laden (has it yet been mentioned what a GutsyCall™ that was on Obama’s part?), and, above all, on the Israel-Palestine “peace process” that in reality is no such thing. In his remarks on | Read More »
It’s 1938 — all over again
Nothing should shock me anymore about the depth of humanity’s oldest hatred — nevertheless I am in shock. The next Holocaust is being prepared — as the world looks on. And does nothing. On Wednesday, in Cairo, Fatah — the terrorist group founded by Yasser Arafat that now styles itself as “moderate” and runs the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — signed a reconciliation | Read More »
Palestinian Authority Chief Says Israel Is Trying To Kill Him.
http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/135542 Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas, current chairman of the Palestinian Authority, claims that Israel is trying to assassinate him. Abbas told an Egyptian news agency this week that Israel had murdered his predecessor,Yasser Arafat – despite Arafat’s commitment to peace – and that he is afraid of suffering the same fate. The PA chairman, who enjoys massive political and economic backing from Western powers, further | Read More »
It’s been going on for decades, but it’s nation-ending dangerous.
Hi and Merry Christmas to you and your families. I am currently “under orders” from my friend Lt. Col. Allen West, US-A, Ret. (Cand. FL-22) that after this posting, I am on a Christmas Day ‘stand-down’. I will willingly and gladly stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the man at any time, any place, mortal danger included, so I’m going to adhere to his request and unless some | Read More »

So these “moderate” Fatah Palestinians decided to hold a conference and …
what a circus it has turned out to be! It is getting zero TV time here from what I’ve seen. The NY Times has several articles but they are watered down and inconsistent with each other. The Jerusalem Post has articles with more detail, but I believe the full versions have only a limited availability after the initial date posted. There are several interesting bits | Read More »
Hamas Terrorizes Fatah
Why isn’t this being reported in the MSM? Fatah officials in Ramallah told The Jerusalem Post that Hamas militiamen had been assaulting many Fatah activists since the beginning of the operation last Saturday. They said at least 75 activists were shot in the legs while others had their hands broken. Meanwhile, sources close to Hamas revealed over the weekend that the movement had “executed” more | Read More »
Will Barack Obama Use Islamofascist Terrorists For Security?
Yesterday I saw the World Net Daily article suggesting Islamofascist terrorist organizations, including the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, will be providing security for Obama in Palestinian territory. Tony Blair, in a recent trip to Israel, cancelled a trip into Palestinian territory because the Palestinians intended that arrangement for him. I did not blog this then because I tend to want other sources to back up | Read More »
