Jerusalem Post says:

A Palestinian family has killed its 15-year-old son in the West Bank after accusing him of “collaboration” with Israel.

I Beg Your Pardon, Mr. President.

4 06 2009

How did that sound guys? I was kinda gunning for an Olbermann effect.

Here’s the reason for the indignation:

Back on December 5th, OOTB linked to a NYT story that Obama would deliver a major speech from an Islamic capital. Knowing that Obama would never mention honor killings and gay stonings, or remind Muslims that American blood and treasure had been recently and frequently spent in their favor, I wasn’t planning on saying anything about it.

I was prepared for placating platitudes about our aggressions and their humiliations, our selfishness and their pain.  I was willing to go along for the ride in the attempt to, win hearts and minds by exaggerating the population of Muslims in America and down-playing our very obvious differences.

I didn’t even care if he credited Islam with the Renaissance (which he did).

In fact, I was totally willing to give Obama a shot at serving up some of his refined taqiyya to the throngs of non-drinkers.

But then he had to go and say this:

America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.

No.  A$$hole.

The aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in history, PERIOD.

It’s discussed in the Bible and fortified by archeological evidence.

Attributing the existence of a Jewish state to the infamous tragedies of the Jews, no matter how eloquently put, plays into the hands of the anti-Zionists who can henceforth relate the Holocaust to Palestinian suffering.

It is weak-minded and lazy moral relativism and I loathe it like nothing else.

  • It begs the question of, why Arabs pay the price for European/Russian crimes.
  • It validates the presumption that the Palestinians are native to the land, while perpetuating the notion of Jews as pathetic nomads.
  • It cheapens the word, “holocaust” to the degree that Muslims believe the Jews deserve a real holocaust for imposing one and faking another.  And ultimately, it does not address the issue that Islam is by nature, anti-Semitic.
  • It reinforces conspiracy theorizing eugenicists like Nazis and Nation of Islamers/Black Liberation Theos, that modern Jews are fake Jews who stole Judaism.

So thanks for nothing Mr. Prez.

Atlas, who informs us that the despicable “Muslim Brotherhood” invited Obama to Egypt, has a pretty extensive post about the speech and it’s worth a look. She also has interesting news about how Obama’s keeping us safe in her highly readable stories about Eric Holder giving special protection to Muslims in America, and Obama ordering law enforcement agencies to back off counterterror investigations of Muslim-American converts.

American Thinker has an interesting ditty about one of the Quran verses that Obama quoted and the convenient omission of the subsequent verse.

Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com was pleasantly surprised and has solid links!

Instapundit with a classic one-liner:

They told me that if I voted for McCain, we’d get a President whose speeches on Islam were praised at Hot Air and criticized at the HuffPo. And they were right!

The Daily Beast has a column that teaches you how to write your own Obama speech.  Check this excoriating **** OUT!

And here’s a nice video with instructions on how to properly boycott Israel should you desire, brought to you by, Islam in Action:





High-Stakes Bluff: Called. Raised! Cheney Wants Less Secrets Than Dems!?

24 04 2009

By now, you know Obama released some Bush memos (and photos?) regarding harsh interrogation methods, and boy do they sound horrific.  Maybe you have even been forced to confront these shocking techniques if you’ve come across liberal protesters water-boarding each other in the middle of the street…

Which, of course proves it’s not torture.

But, this is the “healing” portion of the Obama regime and “he won,” so let’s hear him out.

A sudden reversal and refocus on the last 8 years as the nation is clandestinely transformed, boils down to; neutering and threatening American combatants while simultaneously soothing and aiding enemy combatants undocumented malcontents.

In other words, every whiny, bitchass, jihadi in Tunisia and Jordan now knows our tactics and can prepare for them.  Meanwhile, American servicepeople are justifiably afraid they’re going to have their lives ruined in the public arena for defending their country.

Good idea idiot! You really are, first and foremost, a “citizen of the world!”

Seriously though, if this confession means that America will stop turning peace-loving, Muslims into terrorists, and that all future Islamic terrorism can be solely caused by the Koran, then we’ll have returned to September 10th and who doesn’t want that?

Smart Democrats should be disheartened because this was such an obvious pitfall for the Obama Administration.

Luckily, for those with a sense of humor, instant karma arrived in no time as Dick Cheney is now, more squarely positioned in the, “investigate Bush war crimes” camp, than the lying disgrace, Nancy Pelosi, who denies knowing about “enhanced interrogation techniques.”

That’s because in typical fashion, Obama only released the classified info about the tactics used by Americans, not the resulting intel, which was significant .

Here’s my Mick Dundee, “that’s not a knife, that’s a knife” moment, fortified by Oddee.com’s post last month about real torture devices.

Dhimmi Carter: “Hamas Can Be Trusted” Jews Cannot

26 01 2009

This filth was warned by the Bush Administration not to talk with Hamas, has done so repeatedly and is now taking his message to other anti-Israel crowds, like NBC.

He could have gone to CBS as Atlas illustrates 60Minutes’ “anti-Jewish blood libels” from last night’s propaganda show.

Carter glowed, “perhaps most important, there is an overwhelming common desire for peaceful and prosperous lives among the citizens of Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Egypt.”

Somebody tell the Jewhater that Muslims in the region aren’t exactly desiring prosperity and have diagnosed the Jews’ problem.  Nasrallah sums it up:

Another weakness is that both as individuals and as a collective,
they are described by Allah as “the people who guard their lives most.”
Their strong adherence to this world, with all its vanities and
pleasures, constitutes a weakness.

In contrast, our people and our nation’s willingness to sacrifice
their blood, souls, children, fathers, and families for the sake of the
nation’s honor, life, and happiness
has always been one of our nation’s
strengths.
