Egyptian women protest proposed constitution
Islamists are seeking to enshrine in Egypt’s long-awaited new constitution a number of articles that secularists and liberals fear would severely set back civil liberties, including provisions that could empower clerics to stipulate that women’s rights cannot violate Shariah law or “family duties.” Read more…

DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE PRACTICAL PROBLEM OF MUSLIM VIOLENCE

http://sultanknish.blogspot.com/

For the moment let’s put aside the great debate we are currently having over whether Muslims are bloodthirsty savages or noble persecuted victims of our foreign policy. Whatever one’s view of the tenets of a religion whose founder got rich and got married by murdering and torturing those who didn’t bow to his god, its modern day practitioners represent a practical problem that not even the most wide-eyed chump with a two-thousand dollar camera full of photos of native boys and a guidebook to doing Benghazi on two pebbles a day can really overlook.
Muslims, in a percentile yet to be decided, kill people. That is a thing which most members of the human race, not counting perhaps the Amish, do from time to time, but they seem to do it more frequently and without the non-prejudicial clause that our modern looters and murderers are expected to abide by. More problematically they do this in troublingly organized ways with an eye to achieving the maximum possible death toll even when there is no personal profit or personal survival involved.

Imagine the gang bangers with their gold-plated 9mm’s held at an artful hip-hop video angle believing that a short lifetime of sordid evil will be atoned by killing anyone who isn’t a member of the Crips, Bloods and Mohammeds. Now put those gang bangers under the leadership of a Muslim Bill Ayers, a graduate of some second-rate American university with a degree in Muslim Brotherhood recruitment in Cairo, and throw in funding from a Muslim George Soros with his own line of oil wells, terrorist training camps and country. Put the whole thing together and you have a serious Muslim terrorist problem.

DAVID GOLDMAN: EGYPT’S MELTDOWN CONTINUES

http://pjmedia.com/spengler/ Egypt’s economy appears to be running on fumes. Public health clinics are out of vaccine for infants, importers are running out of stockpiles of basic food items, and the government is $3 billion in the hole to oil suppliers in the midst of a paralyzing fuel shortage. And it doesn’t look like anyone is […]

CLAUDIA ROSETT: OBAMA OUT TO LUNCH AT THE UNITED NATIONS

His secretary of state and his ambassador both skipped Netanyahu’s speech.
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/329155/obama-out-lunch-un-claudia-rosett
At last week’s grand gathering of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, one of the Obama administration’s worst fumbles was largely unreported by the U.S. media. It came during Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Thursday speech to the assembly.
In the face of Iran’s advancing nuclear program and repeated threats to annihilate Israel, Netanyahu was presenting an urgent case for drawing a red line against Iran’s ability to make nuclear weapons. “The relevant question,” he said, “is not when Iran will get the bomb. The relevant question is at what stage can we no longer stop Iran from getting the bomb.”
The prime minister presented this essential declaration to a U.N. chamber dominated by member states whose governments are for the most part hostile to Israel. More than half of them belong to the Non-Aligned Movement, now chaired by Iran. Meanwhile, the most important diplomat to whom Netanyahu should be able to look for support, the U.S.’s ambassador to the U.N., was not there.
Amid the theater of U.N. summit speeches, where symbolism matters, Ambassador Susan Rice should have been right there in the chamber — not only to listen to America’s embattled ally, but to be witnessed by the world, and especially by other delegations to the U.N., heeding every word and applauding at the end. If Rice absolutely could not be present, Secretary of State Clinton, also in New York for meetings, should have been there.
