Obama Whitewashes Iranian Terrorism

The Obama administration is shamelessly whitewashing the Iranian regime’s state sponsorship of global terrorism, no doubt to help soften Iran’s image in preparation for trying to foist a bad nuclear deal on the American people. It also did the same thing for Iran’s jihadist proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah. The administration’s most recent unclassified version of the Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community report published on February 26, 2015, delivered to the U.S. Senate by National Intelligence director James Clapper, conspicuously omitted any reference to the ongoing terrorist threat posed by Iran and Hezbollah. While acknowledging that Iran remains "an ongoing threat to U.S. national interests," the report noted Iran’s "intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia." The report also noted Iran's commitment of more resources to the fight against the Sunni extremists of the Islamic State. [more...]

'Mindslaughtered:' U.S. Arms Negotiations - From Communists to Jihadists

Irrational, hypocritical attacks on Sen. Tom Cotton and the GOP-47 for their March 9, 2015 "Open Letter to the Leaders of the Islamic Republic of Iran" notwithstanding, the Senators' message has had a salutary clarifying effect. We now know that the looming nuclear agreement with Iran:

1)      will be a non-binding agreement under international law.
2)      will not be converted into binding obligations by the U.N. Security Council.
3)      will not be submitted to Congress for a vote.

This latter point - not submitting the "agreement" to Congressional vote - is contrary to almost all past arms control agreements, which have been Senate Advice and Consent Treaties (whose approval requires a 2/3 vote in the Senate). Thus, absent Congressional approval, the Obama Administration appears hell-bent on giving legitimacy to Iran’s uranium enrichment program, and waiving economic sanctions on Iran. The appalling Iran deal, as being negotiated till now, also fully ignores Iran’s ongoing ballistic missile, and nuclear weaponization programs.

The experience of Soviet-era tactical deceptions - lies and cheating - during decades of arms control efforts, has no resonance with our ineducable present day State Department officials engaged with takiya- (Islamic dissimulation) practicing Iran in its relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons capability. Indeed, Soviet totalitarianism simply reproduced many of the features of long pre-existing totalitarian Islam - most notably, the quest for global domination.

Mindslaughter, the brilliantly evocative term coined by historian Robert Conquest for delusive Western apologetics regarding the ideology of Communism, and the tangible horrors its Communist votaries inflicted, applies equally to the current state of U.S. engagement with Iran, "normalizing" a global jihadist, Jew- and infidel-hating, Shiite theocracy. We are in crying need of Conquest's intellectual courage and brutal honesty when it comes to addressing the contemporary scourge of resurgent jihadism and its most dangerous manifestation: a nuclear weapons possessing, jihadist Iran.  [more...]

Jordan Follows Obama and Negotiates with Terrorists

Jordan announced its willingness to release an imprisoned jihadist female terrorist, Sada al-Rishawi, to ISIS in exchange for the release of a Jordanian pilot, 1st Lt. Muath al-Kasaesbeh, whom ISIS captured in Syria. "Jordan confirms that it is completely prepared to release the prisoner Sajida al Rishawi if Moaz al Kasasbeh is released and his life is intact," said the Foreign Ministry statement. "The priority of Jordan from the start of the crisis was to insure the life of our son, the pilot Kasaesbeh," said the spokesman, Mohammed al Momani. [more...]

Palestinian Bloodlust Unleashed

Two Palestinian thugs, armed with cleavers, knives and a gun, invaded an orthodox synagogue in West Jerusalem early Tuesday during morning prayers, and proceeded to murder four Jewish worshipers in cold blood. At least a dozen others were wounded. Three of the murder victims were American citizens. The fourth was a British citizen. Three of the victims were also rabbis. Israeli police, arriving at the scene of the horrific massacre and exchanging gunfire with the Palestinians as they tried to escape, shot the murderers to death. But the horrible images of the slain and wounded worshipers with blood everywhere, drenching holy books, prayer shawls and walls of the synagogue, will live on for a very long time.

The U.S. Should Give China Breathing Room to Rise Peacefully

As President Obama visited China, he insisted that the U.S. welcomed China's rise and wanted that country to play a bigger role in regional and global affairs; but that rhetoric is largely hokum. The United States has been either the premier superpower or the only superpower in the world since World War II, exercising an outsize role in global and East Asian Affairs. In world history, many times rising powers have had tensions or conflict with status quo or declining powers, because the latter resist a more equal relationship with the new "upstart." America is no exception.

Xi Jinping, China's leader, has recently spoken of a "new type of great power relations" with the United States. This is diplomatic speak for China wanting its own sphere of influence in East Asia - much as other great powers have had a security buffer in the past. The American foreign policy elite self-servingly dismiss this Chinese desire as "so 19th century"; of course, they would howl if any country tried to encroach on the U.S. spheres of influence Europe (why the United States is very nervous about Russian activities in Ukraine) and Latin America (traditionally enforced vigorously with the Monroe Doctrine).
