MY SAY: DAVID ISAAC’S INCREDIBLE WORK IN HIS SERIES ZIONISM 101…..MUST SEE

Dear Member:

A new video has gone up.

Part three of Course 2: “Origins of Zionism” is now available.

You can see it directly via the following link:

http://zionism101.org/NewestVideo.aspx

Or log in at www.zionism101.org

Part 3: “Modern Zionism” chronicles the rise of the modern secular movement to restore Jewish sovereignty to the Land of Israel.

As Theodor Herzl said to a Berlin audience in 1898:

“We must not abandon our people to an uncertain future. We must see to it that they can live in safety. Look upon this movement as one which is committed to the general welfare, which wishes to serve the poor, is inimical to no one, and can bring a measure of relief to all mankind.”

We encourage you to share information about “Zionism 101″ with your friends, family, and co-workers, plus anyone else who is interested in learning about the most important development in modern Jewish history.

If you haven’t already, please watch our completed video series on the founding fathers, including Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weizmann, David Ben-Gurion and Vladimir Jabotinsky.

We welcome questions and comments.

Sincerely,

David Isaac
Executive Director

Petraeus’ briefing raises questions about motive

Petraeus’ briefing raises questions about motive

[David] Petraeus, once talked about as presidential timber, played a big part in the administration’s misleading narrative surrounding the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

That we now know he was under investigation by the FBI for an affair and a security breach when he told congressional leaders that the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others was a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim video adds a level of intrigue that is extraordinary even for the spooky world of the CIA.

Before that briefing, the State Department had evidence that the attack was carried out by an al Qaeda offshoot, a fact that led some members of Congress to suggest Petraeus was parroting the White House political line. His confession of the affair and the FBI probe give that suggestion new meaning because he could have had an ulterior motive for being a team player.

Israel Haters Invade Wheaton College Posted By Ryan Mauro

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/ryan-mauro/israel-haters-invade-wheaton-college/print/ Evangelist Billy Graham told Christians to base their vote on supporting Israel, yet anti-Israel activists held a “24 Hour Middle East Leadership Briefing” at a center named after him at Wheaton College on November 8-9. The irony should serve as a reminder that evangelical support for Israel cannot be taken for granted and must […]

DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE JEWISH AND POST JEWISH VOTE

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/the-jewish-and-post-jewish-vote/print/ Last Shabbat I sat at a table in my local synagogue while a group of men argued over the election. They weren’t arguing over who they should vote for, they were arguing over just how bad Obama was, their voices rising and falling as they named one detail after another. They weren’t necessarily Republicans, […]

JED BABBIN: THE PETRAEUS AFFAIR

http://spectator.org/archives/2012/11/12/the-petraeus-affair It’s such a cliché. A powerful man, away from home for years at a time, in jobs that put him under enormous emotional strain. A younger woman, attached to him by her job, spending endless hours with him on and off duty. That they fell into a love affair is so ordinary as to […]

BRUCE THORNTON: EXPLAINING THE DEMOCRATS’ SUCCESS AND THE DYSFUNCTIONS OF DEMOCRACY ****

http://frontpagemag.com/2012/bruce-thornton/the-democrats-success-and-the-dysfunctions-of-democracy/print/ The election post-mortem has identified all manner of causes for the Republicans’ defeat, from the “woman problem” and the “Hispanic problem,” as Peggy Noonan put it, to Romney’s fatcat persona and his inept campaign. But there’s a simpler reason, one consistent with the critics of democracy starting in ancient Athens––Obama and the Democrats promised […]

Why Did Al-Qaeda Target Ambassador Stevens? Shoshana Bryen and Stepehn Bryen

http://pjmedia.com/blog/why-did-al-qaeda-target-ambassador-stevens/
Most of the questions related to the Benghazi debacle are about the mechanics, both offensive and defensive. What did the White House know and when? What assets were available to the military? Did someone order a stand down, and if so, who? Why was “the video” blamed long after the administration knew the truth — and didn’t the administration know the truth from the beginning? If it didn’t, why didn’t it?

All reasonable questions, but a generally unasked one deserves attention: “Why did al-Qaeda want to kill Ambassador Chris Stevens?”
The ambassador had good relations with some of the most extreme Libyan militias, including those with al-Qaeda ties. Did he upset them with something he did, or didn’t do? Was the White House fully apprised of his connections and dealings with the militias? Was he killed because of something the administration told him to start doing or to stop doing?

There are things we know and things upon which we must speculate, including the entry of surface-to-air missiles to the Levant.

———————————–

Emerging from the chaos is a dim understanding that the U.S. was operating a clandestine arms operation from the CIA post that was loosely — and incorrectly — described as a “consulate.” Before and during the revolution, Ambassador Stevens had helped arm the anti-Gaddafi militias, including the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIF), whose leader Abdulhakim Belhadj later became the head of the Tripoli Military Council.

The LIF’s Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi told an Italian newspaper in 2011 (later reported in the British Telegraph) that he had fought the “foreign invasion” in Afghanistan. Captured in Pakistan, al-Hasidi was handed over to the U.S. and returned to Libya, where he was released from prison in 2008. Speaking of the Libyan revolution, he said:

Members of al-Qaeda are also good Muslims and are fighting against the invader.

STELLA PAUL: REBRANDING THE DEMOCRATS

http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/11/rebranding_the_democrats.html The Democrats are masters of political language, and as you may have noticed, they just won. Basically, they have two tricks. They concoct a simple negative label for anything they want to defeat and then relentlessly shriek it in unison. You know the drill: “racist,” “homophobe,” “bigot,” “right-wing lunatic,” etc. Then, they sanctify with […]

PUSHBACK IN FRANCE AGAINST ISLAMOFACISM….*****

Fightback In France Against Fascism (video)
My Franco-Israeli reader Jean alerted me to a so-called “March Contre Le Fascisme Islamiste” that took place on Saturday afternoon (10th November) in Paris.

Chief organiser Christine Tassin explained beforehand:

‘”We want this march to be a march of hope and confidence in this country.

We refuse violence and terror, we must be united no matter our political views.

All patriots must be united against fascism of the 21st century that is Islamism.Bring your French flag!

Recent events have shown us in France and elsewhere in the world that Islamism is getting more and more dangerous for our democracies and the free world. Supporters of Islamism hate liberty and freedom, they want to impose us Sharia.

The Benghazi attack, the Criminal jihadist Mohamed Merah, Ilan Halimi [a young Jewish man] tortured for 3 weeks by a gang of barbarians. the Vogel Family Massacre stabbed in their sleep, the killing of Theo Van Gogh by muslim fanatics to name a few remind us that islamo fascism is a daily threat.”‘

Adds Jean:

This March highlights the threat from the Islamic jihad, and the oppression of Muslim women. Islamo-Fascism Awareness march.

Islamic fanatics operate a fascistic concept of the “pure” and the “exclusive” over the unclean and the kufar or profane. “fascism with an Islamic face”describes the attack on civil society on Sept. 11, 2001.

“It is right for us to be on the offense against Islamo fascism, and not wait until they attack us on our soil. Unlike any war we have ever fought in this nation, this is not a war for soil. It is a war for our soul. We will either win it or we will lose it. This nation must rally to the point where we recognize there is no compromise. There is no alternative. We must win; they must lose. Islam fascism must disappear from the face of the earth, or we will.” — Mike Huckabee

“What we have to understand is … this is not really a war against terrorism, this is not really a war against al Qaeda, this is a war against movements and ideologies that are jihadist, that are Islam fascists, that aim to destroy the Western world.” — Clifford May

“Islamic terrorist attacks serve a clear and focused ideology, a set of beliefs and goals that are evil, but not insane. Some call this evil Islamic radicalism; others, militant Jihadism; still others, Islamo-fascism. Whatever it’s called, this ideology is very different from the religion of Islam. This form of radicalism exploits Islam to serve a violent, political vision: the establishment, by terrorism and subversion and insurgency, of a totalitarian empire that denies all political and religious freedom.” — George W. Bush
