Tale of the Two-Timing Terrorist Daniel Greenfield

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/259861/tale-two-timing-terrorist-daniel-greenfield It’s time for Israel to kick two-timing terrorist supporters out of its house. When Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited Israel’s parliament, he was heckled by Muslim politicians. Netanyahu told the conservative Canadian leader that the presence of a vocal opposition was the difference between Israel and Syria. The leader of the Muslim hecklers […]

Sanctuary City Releases & Protects Illegal Alien Fugitive Rapist Michael Cutler

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/259845/sanctuary-city-releases-protects-illegal-alien-michael-cutler Time for congressional subpoenas for the politicians and law-enforcement managers in Miami. Public relations is a vital issue for all companies and government agencies. When public relations professionals twist stories to create a deceptively positive impression, they are said to be “spinning” the story. All too frequently, news releases issued by ICE (Immigration and […]

Academic Fascism II One potential solution that may stop the madness. Walter Williams

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/259852/academic-fascism-ii-walter-williams Last week’s column highlighted college campus absurdities and the ongoing attack on free speech and plain common sense. As parents gear up to fork over $20,000 to $60,000 for college tuition, they might benefit from knowing what greets their youngsters. Deceitful college officials, who visit high schools to recruit students and talk to parents, […]

Good Riddance to Castro Propagandist Jon Stewart -Cuba’s oppressors lose a valuable media ally. Humberto Fontova

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/259863/good-riddance-castro-propagandist-jon-stewart-humberto-fontova “What Walter Cronkite was to an earlier generation — an utterly trusted voice — Stewart has been to Millenials,” recently gushed the Boston Globe. Indeed, Jon Stewart’s educational influence on Americans under 40 has become a cliché — as a boast by liberals, as a jeer by conservatives. And on some issues, at least, Stewart […]

Steven Spielberg and the Temple of Obama By Matthew Continetti —

http://www.nationalreview.com/node/422905/print The closest I’ve ever come to glimpsing hell was on Monday, when I read an article in the New York Times headlined, “With High-Profile Help, Obama Plots Life After Presidency.” Reporters Michael D. Shear and Gardiner Harris reveal the “methodical effort taking place inside and outside the White House as the president, first lady, and a […]

The Very Real Economic Costs of Birthright Citizenship By Ian Tuttle —

The Very Real Economic Costs of Birthright Citizenship By Ian Tuttle — ‘Peter and Ellie Yang,” the subjects of Benjamin Carlson’s fascinating new Rolling Stone essay, “Welcome to Maternity Hotel California,” paid $35,000 to have their second child in the United States. In 2012 Chinese state media reported 10,000 “tourist births” by Chinese couples in […]

The Justice Department’s ‘Grotesque’ Misconduct against New Orleans Cops By Andrew C. McCarthy

http://www.nationalreview.com/node/422923/print As we’ve previously observed, the Obama jihad to fundamentally transform America’s police, spearheaded by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, proceeds from the premise that police departments are corrupt institutions, beset by a culture of racism and law-breaking. This week, after a federal appeals court’s exposé of a breathtaking prosecutorial conspiracy to deprive indicted […]

On Birthright Citizenship and Our Evolving Jurisdiction By Andrew C. McCarthy

http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/422702/birthright-citizenship-and-our-evolving-jurisdiction-andrew-c-mccarthy Rich, Professor Graglia was clearly right that the Fourteenth Amendment, far from compelling the grant of birthright citizenship, is better understood as denying it. Yet, as we’ve recently been reminded by the Supremes, being right does not always matter – after all, we’re evolving! How hard is it to imagine Justice Anthony Kennedy writing something like […]

Is Spain Fueling the BDS War Against Israel? by Soeren Kern

Spain’s center-right government under Mariano Rajoy continues to pursue policies that are antagonistic towards Israel — policies that are virtually unchanged from the government of former Socialist Prime Minister of José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero — policies that largely coincide with the objectives of the BDS movement.

Although Spain’s Foreign Minister has repeatedly said that the government does not support a boycott against Israel, under his watch the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID), the Foreign Ministry’s primary aid-giving agency, has continued to subsidize organizations that work to delegitimize Israel.

Between 2009 and 2011, the Zapatero government funneled more than €15 million of Spanish taxpayer funds to Palestinian and Spanish non-governmental organizations that are among the leaders in campaigns aimed at delegitimizing Israel via BDS, lawfare and other forms of demonization, according to a comprehensive analysis published by the Jerusalem-based NGO Monitor.

The Rajoy government continues to fund NGOs that are involved in anti-Israel activities.

According to the Official Gazette of the Spanish State, for example, NOVA-Centre per la Innovació Social, a Barcelona-based NGO with a history of anti-Israel activism, is slated to receive more than €200,000 in 2015… AECID awarded €200,000 in 2014 to the Catalan Association for Peace, a group that has co-organized a three-year project to “raise awareness” for the BDS movement against Israel.

“The EU calls our ambassadors in because of the construction of a few houses? When did the EU call in the Palestinian ambassadors about incitement that calls for Israel’s destruction?… They don’t tell the Palestinians that they have to make their peace with a nation-state for the Jewish people. They just give the Palestinians a nation-state.” — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Nuke Deal or Not, Iran Has Already Declared War on Us by Lawrence A. Franklin

U.S. policymakers who hope that the nuclear deal will help nudge the Islamic revolutionary state into becoming a normal member of the international community seem to forget the past. Policymakers, journalists, and intelligence analysts had all predicted that the era of former Iranian President Mohammad Khatami was a sure sign of the evolution of the revolution. Khatami was replaced by the even more hardline president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

It seems clear that despite the American political establishment’s failure to recognize that a state of war already exists between Iran and the United States, the Islamic Republic has no doubt with whom it is at war.

Iran has been at war with the “Great Satan” (USA) since the establishment of the Islamic Republic in 1979. Its opening move was the regime’s seizure of the American Embassy and its taking U.S. diplomats hostage for 444 days in 1979-1980. Technically, the move was an internationally recognized casus belli, legitimate cause for war.

In addition, the Iranian regime’s proxy terrorist group, Hezbollah, engineered the murder of 241 U.S. soldiers, sailors, and marines in Lebanon on October 23, 1983. Iran also sponsored the truck bombing that murdered 19 US Air Force personnel at the Khobar Towers housing complex in Saudi Arabia on June 25, 1996,[1] in an attack allegedly executed by a Bahrain-based cell of Hezbollah, with the cooperation of a Saudi-trained Hezbollah cell.[2]
