Wall Street Journal Gives Action to Principles
Kudos must go to the Wall Street Journal for standing by its principles. Haaretz reports that the WSJ pulled its sponsorship this week for a tennis tournament in Dubai after that Islamic state ignorantly denied a visa for an Israeli player scheduled to play there. Dubai refused the visa for Israeli player Shahar Peer because of the supposed anger of Muslim tennis fans over the | Read More »
Israel’s election results – still a little smoky
A week after voting, and it’s been quite a little horse-trading affair, with at least one medium-sized surprise – hard-line nationalist party Yisrael Beiteinu and their 15 seats are still in play. They have an interesting future, but for now are relishing their potential king-maker role.
Now Iran Wants to Talk to Obama; The Day After Israeli Elections
…and now Iran is asking Obama for talks. That would force Obama to place pressure on whatever new coalition ultimately forms a government in Israel NOT to do a bombing raid on Iran’s enrichment facilities. Predictable move, let’s see if it works. My bet: Obama will start shrieking like an 8 year old girl again.
Israel election tomorrow : a very, very good thing is happening
Final prediction polls show Benjamin Netanyahu is expected, narrowly, to become the nation’s next prime minister. This is an exceedingly good thing.
I do not say to Congress, “Do not pass a resolution condemning the Armenian genocide.”
…and the successor state to the one that committed said genocide has not adequately addressed the actions of its predecessor. The new President campaigned on the issue, and top foreign policy adviser Samantha Power (back from internal exile from her previously calling the new Secretary of State a “monster”) is known for her stance on it. And, at the end of things, there are a | Read More »
How do you win a fight but be expected to act like you lost
I have been mulling this over in my head te past few weeks when the Isreal/Hamas fight broke out, and Isreal just went full bore into the West Bank. One question bothers me. How can Hamas, who was getting repeatedly punched in the face, and a mudhole stomped in them get to dictate terms of ceasefires, etc. That would be like me getting into a | Read More »
US Professors Attacking Israel and YOUR Tax $$ Fund It
Sadly, we are used to the anti-Semitism of Europe. After all, that is where anti-Semitism has historically thrived in a most virulent form and does still today. We are also used to the Jew hatred of the illiterati of Europe’s universities having seen so often the petitions they’ve raised to denounce Israel and give succor to Hamas and Fatah — and any other terrorist group | Read More »
Obama’s first 1:1 interview goes to…al-Aribiya
This guy is going to be a disaster. Obama gave his first one-on-one to al Aribiya. Check out some of his answers (hat tip to Hot Air) – most of what he says is typical Obama, the no-answer answer Obama, that is. Long on rhetoric, short of specifics. Some of his answers, though, are quite illuminating: http://www.alarabiya.net/articles/2009/01/27/65087.html#004 Q: You’ve been saying essentially that we should | Read More »
What is Obama president of again?
The UN? The BBC? Originally published by Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report Obama speaks in third person of United States as dictator His first phone call after re-taking the Oath of Office prescribed for the office of President of the United States (this time sans Bible), was to the leader of the Palestinian Authority, whose Fatah Party does not recognize the right | Read More »
Living Next Door to a Serial Killer
Israel has won a huge military victory in a defensive war against the radical Islamist Hamas group which rules the Gaza Strip. So what does Israel want? Its first choice would be a moderate movement running the Gaza Strip which would negotiate a deal for a Palestinian state living in peace alongside Israel, resettling refugees there, and being a prosperous, stable state. All Israel desires | Read More »
Israel just declared a unilateral truce. They’re not shooting anymore. Hamas of course still is and won’t stop.
In what can only be described as a definite attempt at national suicide, Israel has simply stopped it’s attack on Hamas. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/129470 My thoughts instantly went to ‘why’ and all I could think of is: The One must have called up Olmert and Livini and said: “All you Evil Juice. Stop it now and withdraw, or two seconds after I take the office on Tuesday, | Read More »
The Gaza Conlfict, and its implications on Obama Foreign Policy
In an interview that Kathryn Jean Lopez conducted with Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post, Ms. Glick pointed out the basic inconsistency of the media coverage and resultant public perception of the Gaza conflict. What is interesting about this latest round of fighting is that the world paid little attention to what was going on when it was only Hamas attacking Israel. People only started paying | Read More »
TIME Takes Swipe at Joe The Plumber (Now Joe The Reporter)
TIME magazine got a twofer on a recent screed headlined “Is Israel Losing the Media War in Gaza?.” Not only did TIME use its article to take a few swipes at Samuel Joe Wurzelbacher (known as Joe the Plumber) but it also took the opportunity to once again blame the Jews for everything going on in Gaza. Naturally, TIME’s description of Joe the Plumber was | Read More »
Why the rush towards cease fire? — Give war a chance.
Once before, something even better than a cease fire was tried. All the people of Gaza wanted was to be left alone and exist as a sovereign nation everyone was told. So Israel agreed to the evacuation of Gaza. The best and brightest minds all concluded that if the Israelites just left Gaza it would marginalize Islamist appeal by giving the Palestinians what they want–a | Read More »
