Palestinians’ Prize for Terror



Secretary of State John Kerry - who was heard last Sunday on an open mike between Sunday TV appearances disparaging Israel’s efforts to limit civilian casualties in Gaza - arrived in Cairo on July 21st to frantically cobble together an immediate ceasefire. Seeking the help of Egypt and the United Nations, and even the Hamas-friendly countries of Turkey and Qatar, Kerry is looking for some kind of consensus by the major players in the region for a peace-at-any price formula. He is insisting on a premature ceasefire before Israel is able to find and destroy all the tunnels built under Palestinian civilians’ homes, schools and hospitals, which Hamas is using to hide its weapons and as bases from which to sneak its jihadists into Israel for the purpose of abducting or killing its citizens.

Hamas's Nazi-Style Rocket Blitz


The Palestinian unity government, via its co-equal partner Hamas, is committing war crimes and crimes against humanity against Israeli civilians.  Hamas has launched scores of rockets from Gaza aimed at major Israeli cities covering more than half of Israel, including Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and Caesarea. The attacks have escalated from 6 on June 27th to more than 160 on July 8th. This is Hamas's version of the Nazi-style air blitz, meant to terrorize the Israeli population into submission. Imitating Nazi tactics is a logical extension of the great esteem which Hamas leaders and their Palestinian forebears have held for Adolf Hitler.

America - Biggest Bankroller of Palestinian Killers


The search for the three abducted Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Frenkel (who held Israeli and American citizenship), ended on June 30th with the grisly discovery of their bodies in a shallow grave near the West Bank city of Hebron. They were found by civilian volunteers from an Israeli field school in the area, who alerted Israeli security forces. The boys appeared to have been shot, perhaps shortly after the abrupt ending of a cell phone call from one of the teens in which he said, "I was kidnapped." Cartridges of bullets were found in the burnt out vehicle that was determined to be the car carrying the kidnapped teens. [more...]

Who Funds the Terrorists?


Those who fund terrorists are the elephant in the room that for some reason, people do not see or do not discuss. The bombs the terrorists use to kill innocent civilians are sophisticated and cost far more than guns; up to date military weaponry sells for untold millions. Yet, today’s Islamists do not seem to be suffering from a lack of funding. These people have had the wherewithal to wage war for years on end, first against the army and air force of Libya, later against that of Syria, and now also against Iraq. Hamas and Hezbollah are Shiite groups that are mainly sponsored by Shiite Iran’s petrodollars. However, the recent wars against the armies of Libya, Syria and Iraq were mainly fought by Sunnis. Where did those Sunnis get the tens of billions of dollars needed for these protracted military campaigns? The primary sponsors of Al Qaeda and other Sunni terrorists are likely none other than the "pro-West" Arab oil-producing states.  [more...]

Leader of Jihadist Onslaught in Iraq Released on Obama's Watch


On October 22nd, 2007, Osama bin Laden admitted in an audiotape, entitled "Message to the people of Iraq," that al Qaeda was losing the war in Iraq because it had made mistakes and no longer had the allegiance of Sunni insurgents who had switched sides. When Barack Obama became president on January 20, 2009, the war in Iraq was essentially won. The al Qaeda-backed insurgency was reduced to smoldering embers. George W. Bush's surge had succeeded.

Safely behind bars at the time was Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, an al Qaeda-linked point man who was imprisoned at Camp Bucca in Iraq, after being captured by U.S. forces in 2005. According to a Pentagon assessment at the time, al Baghdadi "would kidnap individuals or entire families, accuse them, pronounce sentence and then publicly execute them." However, the Obama administration decided to shut down the Bucca prison camp and hand over its prisoners to the Iraqi government, including Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, in 2009. The Iraqi government later released him. Al Baghadi boasted to the U.S. soldiers who had held him prisoner, "I’ll see you in New York." [more...]

Time for Truth & Consequences on the Benghazi Cover Up


As Hillary Clinton contemplates running for president in 2016, I wonder if she dreams of conjuring up the Benghazi tragedy and cover-up and repeating in her sleep, "What difference does it make?"  She just cannot get rid of the Benghazi stain on her record. Every time she thinks it's safe to go back into the water and leave Benghazi behind, another bit of the truth is revealed that calls into question the honesty of the Obama administration, including its former Secretary of State, about what happened before, during, and after the September 11, 2012 jihadist attack. And every time, we can count on spinmeisters in President Obama's camp such as White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to say things like Benghazi is old news and that Republicans are engaging in unfounded conspiracy theories.

More Heavy Weaponry for Syrian Rebels?


President Obama is considering ramping up military support to the Syrian rebels, who are increasingly dominated by jihadists. American anti-tank missiles have already appeared in videos in the hands of rebel forces. According to an April 21st report in Time Magazine, the White House is now considering sending the rebels shoulder-fired surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles known as manpads. In the wrong hands, such missiles could be used to take out commercial aircraft.
