http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/313257/history-mpac-andrew-c-mccarthy On September 11, 2001, al-Qaeda operatives slaughtered nearly 3,000 Americans in an operation that marked the second major attack by violent jihadists against the World Trade Center. There wasn’t much mystery about who had carried out these atrocities — unless you were Salam al-Marayati, executive director of the Muslim Public Affairs Council. Marayati warned [...]

Democrats pushing Reid’s tax-smear tactic
Monday, August 6, 2012
In every media appearance, the story was the same — a Democrat was asked about Harry Reid’s remarkable abuse of the Senate floor, and responded by endorsing Reid’s twisted McCarthyite reasoning: it’s up to Romney to make the story go away by giving in to Reid’s demands, and providing a decade or more or his tax returns.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/aug/6/republicans-one-legged-stool/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS Ronald Reagan forged a winning electoral majority on the stable foundation of what he described as a three-legged stool: fiscal discipline, traditional values and peace through strength. He understood it to be an appealing platform to the American people writ large, including, of course, economic, social and national-security conservatives and the rest of his [...]
The Prime Minister is expected to make the following comments at the Official Memorial Ceremony for the murdered Munich victims tonight
Tonight, David Cameron will address the Official Memorial Ceremony for the 40th Anniversary of the terrorist attack at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games. The Commentator brings you an exclusive preview of his speech tonight, that will serve to commemorate the lives of the 11 Israeli athletes murdered.
The Prime Minister is expected to say:
This evening we mark the 40th anniversary of one of the darkest days in the history of the Olympic Games. A sickening act of terrorism that betrayed everything the Olympic movement stands for and everything that we in Britain believe in.
So as the world comes together in London to celebrate the Games and the values it represents, it is right that we should stop and remember the 11 Israeli athletes who so tragically lost their lives when those values came under attack in Munich 40 years ago today.
It was a truly shocking act of evil. A crime against the Jewish people. A crime against humanity. A crime the world must never forget.
We remember too the 6 Israeli holiday makers brutally murdered by a suicide bomber in Bulgaria just last month.
The ‘common enemy’ is still Israel Contrary to what many Israeli analysts have been saying in the aftermath of Sunday’s terrorist attack in the Sinai, the event does not illustrate that Egypt and Israel now have a common enemy on which to focus renewed cooperation.
Though it is true that the dozens of jihadists — disguised as Bedouin — descended upon the Kerem Shalom checkpoint and slaughtered 16 Egyptian policemen with rifles, grenades and knives, they did so to infiltrate Israel. Once they had removed the obstacle to this aim, they packed up a truck and a tank with explosives that had been smuggled through tunnels leading from the Gaza Strip to Sinai, and headed toward their Jewish target.
It was through Israeli intelligence-gathering — and by the grace of God — that a mega-massacre inside Israel was thwarted. Indeed, Israeli security services had been on high alert, as was indicated by their repeated warnings to vacationers to stay away from or evacuate Sinai.
Did Israel’s swift and precise targeting of the terrorists elicit even a moment’s gratitude, solidarity, or desire for warmer relations from its neighbors to the south?
Not on your life.
Let’s begin with the response of the Muslim Brotherhood — the organization from which the newly “democratically elected” president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, hails.
Since Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s visit to Israel last week, during which Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu openly and in Panetta’s presence decried U.S. policy toward Iran as ineffective, Israeli media have been reporting further bitter charges against Washington by Israeli officials.
On Sunday Ynet, website of the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot, reported that “the Obama administration’s efforts to calm down the Israeli government on the topic of Iran have not made an impression with Jerusalem decision makers,” and that
Senior officials…leveled severe criticism against the US, declaring that the American position on a date for a military strike against Iran was a “wretched red line.”
“The US’ stance is pushing the Iranians to become a country at the brink [of nuclear capability],” explained sources well versed in the nuclear issue. “The Americans are de facto allowing the Iranians to continue to enrich uranium and become a country at the brink. We are not prepared to allow that [to happen].”
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/raymond-ibrahim/obama-administration%e2%80%99s-war-on-persecuted-christians/print/ The Obama administration’s support for its Islamist allies means lack of U.S. support for their enemies, or, more properly, victims—the Christian and other non-Muslim minorities of the Muslim world. Consider the many recent proofs: According to Pete Winn of CNS: The U.S. State Department removed the sections covering religious freedom from the Country Reports [...]
When Mitt Romney arrived in Jerusalem and suggested that Israel’s success contrasted with its Muslim neighbors was due to a culture of success, he was waving a red flag in front of a red bull. Romney’s comments were as provocative to the left as Obama’s “You didn’t build that” remark was to us.
To the left, success has become the Mark of Cain. Where success once used to be proof of good character, the balance has shifted and it is now proof of bad character. The left blames all disparities on injustice. If A has less than B, then B has somehow discriminated against A. All that’s left is for the sociologists and critical race theorists to plug in the variables, write their papers and explain the mechanism for the injustice and how it can be remedied through centralized redistribution.
This is the era of “You didn’t build that” where achievement is inherently unfair and an object of guilt. To succeed is to steal. Anyone who has achieved more than those around him has unfairly taken from them. And the more he succeeds, the more he has to feel guilty about and the more he must atone through social justice.
Mitt Romney didn’t build companies; he unfairly redistributed what should have been equal resources in an unequal way to create that success. America also didn’t build anything; it just looted the resources and markets that should have been divided equally among the nations of the world. And the same goes for Jews and the Jewish State. Individual success is not exceptionalism; it’s stealing from the collective.
