UN Marks Human Rights Day by Promoting Violation of Human Rights: Anne Bayefsky

Sixty-six years ago was the high water mark of global disapproval of xenophobia, and racial and religious discrimination. On December 10, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and then gave Eleanor Roosevelt a standing ovation for her leading role. Today, this statement of principle would never pass.

Racial and religious discrimination is the trademark of the U.N. itself.

Let’s look back at the year 2014.

At least another 75,000 people were butchered in Syria. There were violent crackdowns in Hong Kong, bloody takeovers in Ukraine, subjugation of women in Saudi Arabia, brutal lawlessness in Yemen, Libya, Nigeria, Mexico – and so on.

But at the United Nations, 2014 wraps up with the adoption of twenty times more resolutions by the General Assembly condemning the state of Israel for violating human rights than any other nation on earth.

There is not one General Assembly resolution worried about human rights in China or Russia or Saudi Arabia or Yemen or Libya or Nigeria or Mexico – and so forth.

The General Assembly will even adopt one resolution critical of Syria but two resolutions demanding Israel immediately return the Golan Heights to Syria – the place where lucky Syrians and UN peacekeepers dash to Israel for protection.

The demonization of Israel, and the inequality of the self-determination of the Jewish people, by way of the United Nations have one painfully obvious purpose: the end of the Jewish state. Eleanor Roosevelt would have called it a gross violation of the very spirit of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.


Dear Senators Feinstein, Reid and all House and Senate Democrats:

In the spirit of open and transparent government, you have done all of us a service releasing the CIA report. The things that are open and transparent are what our governing body wishes us to know. Sometimes we have to look at the implications of what is being said and not the words themselves. I think that this is such an occasion.

One thing that is clear is that self-defense is a no-no even when your enemy is aggressive, brutal and completely dedicated to its cause, particularly in killing us. Not only does this administration apply it to the US, it applies it to friendly countries. Take this summer’s war between Israel and Gaza. The Administration, including the President, said that Israel has a right to defend itself. However, if it practices that right on the enemy, it is a crime. Using Iron Dome to shoot down Hamas missiles was fine. To hit their launching pads near apartment, schools and UN facilities was a crime against humanity. On the other hand, Hamas aggression where they launched said missiles was ignored as was Hamas’s use of human shields.

Since we have gone back eight years to condemn American (CIA) actions against people who killed 3,000 Americans and aimed to kill more, I think we should go further back to condemn American action of self-defense.

Vietnam is a rallying cry for the Liberal-Progressive wing of America. In Vietnam, we left in total disgrace. We left the people of Vietnam and Cambodia at the non-mercy of North Vietnam Communists and Pol Pot. It was OK that millions were slaughtered because it wasn’t done by Americans. It was done by Communists. Do notice the non-mention of Pol Pot, Gen. Giap, Stalin, Mao, Castro and Che Guevara amongst others by Progressives except when they want to praise them.

What You Can Do About Islamic Terrorism BY Ed Ziegler

It is an absolute fact. The number of Islamic terrorists are growing rapidly as are their violent actions killing more and more non Muslims.

We must stop thinking there is nothing one person can do. There are many options on how an individual can get involved in counteracting terrorists..

Below are a few ideas how you can help defend our freedom. A small amount of assistance from a lot of people can make a big difference.

The very important first step is a firm commitment to learn, with an open mind, about Islam and the terrorists. Clearly, worldwide, the vast majority of terrorists are Muslims who want Islam to take over the world and force everyone to become Muslim. Be prepared to learn that frequently there is a vast difference between what they say and what they actually do.

I heartily recommend that you do not rely on the major media nor politicians for correct information. At best, for the most part, they are ill informed. There are many knowledgeable sources, such as Creepingsharia.wordpress.com, Investigativeproject.org, Thereligonofpeace.com, Jihadwatch.org, Campuswatch.org, UnitedWest.com and Islamicwatch.org that you can easily locate on the internet and subscribe to at no cost.

The Quran, the Muslim’s holy book may be the most controversial book in the world. Some see it as a way to peace. Others see it as a violent mandate for worldwide Islamic supremacy. By reading the Quran, you’ll better understand the Islamic people and the Islamic terrorists and what motivates them. The Quran is available in books and on the internet. The Complete Infidel’s Guide to the Quran by Robert Spencer may be a good start as is “Jihad For Dummies.” These books will help you speak with more knowledge.

A valuable action you can take as an individual is to write or call your representatives and the media with your opinion or a question. Have patience. Continuously expressing your opinions have an impact particularly when many individuals do the same.


Saudi National Reportedly Crashes Car Into US Army Post Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas By Rodrigo Ugarte

A driver who rammed his car into the gates of U.S. Army post Fort Sam Houston in Texas is in custody after the ordeal on Sunday. Police have not provided much information about the situation or the suspect, but the military base, which had been placed under lockdown, has returned to normal operations.

The suspect has been identified as a male Saudi national, according to KCEN TV. Authorities have not identified the man, but he is in custody. Initial reports said the car contained explosives but the Associated Press reported Monday morning the car did not contain any explosive devices.

The AP also reports the suspect is a college student but did not provide his nationality.
The base went into lockdown at around 5:30 p.m. Sunday night, according to the New York Daily News, and was under lockdown for four hours as military police investigated. The Bexar County Sheriff’s Office knew of the lockdown but did not deploy any deputies to the scene.

Cars were not allowed to leave or enter the base as the investigation continued, reported the San Antonio Express-News.

The director of public affairs for Joint Base San Antonio, Todd White, denied the rumors that an active shooter was on the base.


Nothing illegal transpired when the grand jury voted not to indict the policeman who put Eric Garner in a chokehold. People may not have liked that decision but no one has accused the prosecutor of not following the proper guidelines of the law or the jury of having been corrupted. There are remedies for dissatisfaction with this conclusion and they have already started to go into effect. The federal govt has begun preliminary investigations into the possibility of a Civil Rights lawsuit and the family of Mr. Garner will undoubtedly initiate a civil suit against the city for wrongful death. A prestigious law school should have used this event as an important lesson in how our legal system works and how individual rights are balanced against other forces and considerations. Instead, Columbia Law School has deemed this event a trauma for its students and has decided to postpone final exams for those students too impaired to take them. By this reasoning, every time a lawyer loses a case, he should be excused from his immediate work load. The only people who can properly be considered traumatized by Garner’s death are members of his immediate family; students of all colors who are displeased should still be held to their academic responsibilities or the definition of trauma gets diluted down to sheer meaningless-ness.

Similarly, the accusation of gang rape at the University of Virginia that precipitated the article by Rolling Stone and its subsequent retraction by the magazine has led to notes written by 300 students who have posed on Facebook bearing a sign saying “I Stand With Survivors.” Time was when a survivor was a word reserved for people who had remained alive after being prisoners of war or inmates in concentration camps during World War II. These people went through years of starvation, torture and indescribable debasement and looked liked skeletons when they were liberated. Now the word is used by students to describe someone who had a sexual assault – an umbrella term on campus not restricted to rape, but including any unwanted sexual activity including kissing, groping, exhibitionism or voyeurism. Does the term survivor as understood in its original context really apply to this? If you got drunk of your own volition and slept with someone who took advantage of your inebriation, you were irresponsible, not a survivor. If you were physically attacked by someone who raped you, you were a victim of a crime that should be reported to the police. Most people don’t want to brand themselves as victims in perpetuity but neither should they be considered survivors for having had one terrible experience.


Racism is the belief that innate differences among different races determine individual outcomes. As a belief, it has been discredited. As practice it violates an individual’s civil rights. Like prejudice, its persistence reflects society’s moral turpitude.

Prejudice can be defined as preconceived opinions that are not based on reason or experience. It cannot be corrected through legislative actions. Prejudice is cultural and usually ingrained. It comes in many flavors. There are xenophobes, misogynists, anti-Semites and racists, among others. Such feelings are primarily a function of ignorance, but they also reflect a culture that lacks empathy and mutual respect. As a society, we need greater emphasis on family values. We need parents, teachers and others in authority to set exemplary examples. The banning of discrimination and the prosecuting of racists will not, unfortunately, eliminate prejudice.

For political purposes and personal gain, public figures and the media have inflamed the anger following the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson and the alleged choke-hold death of Eric Garner on Staten Island. The two cases were similar in that both involved black men killed by white cops. Both accused men resisted arrest, a violation of the rule of law. They were alike in that Grand Jury’s found no evidence to indict either policeman. But the differences are marked. A video shows what appears to be an unnecessary rough (and deadly) take-down of Mr. Garner. Mr. Brown apparently attacked the arresting officer, while Mr. Garner resisted attempts to be handcuffed, even though he had been arrested for the same misdemeanor before. (The police cannot determine which laws to enforce, no matter how minor the infractions may seem.)

While laws banning discrimination have been enacted, there is no question that prejudice and racism persist; though less overtly than fifty years ago. Tolerance should be encouraged, but it cannot be mandated. It must be learned, as must honor and fairness. Respect must be earned. All should be aspects of our cultural makeup. These are values we inherit from our parents, and should be integral parts of our school’s curriculum.

The New York Times Hits Rock Bottom with Max Blumenthal By Ari Lieberman

The New York Times, the paper that earned the dubious distinction of being the recipient of the “Most Dishonest Reporting” award for 2013 is at it again. This time, The Gray Lady featured an op-ed piece by the notorious anti-Semite Max Blumenthal, providing this provocateur with a mainstream platform to express his odious views.

True to form, Blumenthal, the darling of radical extremists, conflates, distorts and simply makes things up. But I’m not here to analyze Blumenthal’s arrant nonsense. Others have already done a good job of that. What I wish to highlight is the depths to which the New York Times has sunk.

To be sure, the New York Times has in the past given a broad range of anti-Israel types a platform to express their opinions in the op-ed section, far more than those expressing positive views of Israel. But Blumenthal’s pernicious views veer uncomfortably close to old fashion anti-Semitism and this time, the New York Times exceeded the bounds of decency and fair play and has partnered with those who openly express Jew-hatred.

An analysis of Blumenthal’s history reveals the following disturbing facts;

•Blumenthal was disinvited from a scheduled speaking engagement by the German “Die Linke” (The Left) party due to his anti-Semitic (not to mention anti-Israel) views.

•Blumenthal’s antics earned him a lifetime ban from the German parliament.

•The Simon Wiesenthal Center has labeled Blumenthal an anti-Semite and his comments earned him a spot in the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s “Top 10” list of anti-Semitic slurs.

Allah: The Greatest Deceiver? — on The Glazov Gang


This week’s Glazov Gang was guest-hosted by Scholar of Islam Louis Lionheart and joined by Scholar of Comparative Religion Anthony Rogers.

Mr. Rogers joined the show to discuss Allah: The Greatest Deceiver?, analyzing the significance of Islam’s teaching to smile in unbelievers’ faces — but to curse them in one’s heart. The discussion occurred within a focus on Islamic Literary Sources: Their Application, in which Mr. Rogers dissected a religion’s teachings and their earthly incarnations.

Is a Country Merely Empty Space? By Fjordman

Fredrik Reinfeldt was Prime Minister of Sweden from 2006 to 2014. His center-right coalition government suffered a defeat in the general elections of September 2014. Allegedly conservative Prime Minister Reinfeldt stated that the native Swedish culture was merely barbarism; everything good was imported from abroad. He said this in 2006 following a visit to the town of Södertälje, near Stockholm.

In September 2005 a police station in Södertälje was hit by shots from an automatic weapon, following a confrontation between aggressive immigrant youths and the local police. The trouble started after a Swedish girl was called a “whore” and reacted negatively to the epithet.

If a leading politician had said that African, Asian or Islamic culture was “merely barbarism,” there would have been a huge public outcry and calls for his immediate resignation due to “racism.” His career might have been over. Yet disrespecting and mocking the traditions of Europeans is apparently no problem.

Suburbs in Stockholm and other Swedish cities were rocked by major immigrant riots in the spring of 2013. There are fears that similar riots could return at any moment. The underlying problems have not gone away. Despite this, the ruling elites stubbornly reject any suggestion that mass immigration should be curtailed.

Eleven young men and boys were detained in December 2014 after rioting in a Stockholm suburb. The police were attacked with stones and Molotov cocktails, a park was vandalized and several cars were torched. The eleven are suspected of arson, vandalism, violent rioting and attempted severe assault. “They are still being questioned,” police spokeswoman Kia Samrell told news agency TT. Police spokeswoman Elisabeth Wernsten told Swedish Radio News: “A witness saw a large gathering of younger individuals who marched towards the center of Rågsved, where the school is. The witness suspected that the youths were going to smash the school up.” When the police gathered to confront them, they started throwing stones and firebombs. Another police spokeswoman, Eva Nilsson, said that the incident appears to have been premeditated. Police still had no explanation as to why they had been attacked. “This gang simply decided to get together to commit crime. There is no good reason for wanting to attack the police in this way. Nothing provoked the incident,” said Wernsten.

Leftist Lynch Mobs from Ferguson to Rolling Stone By Daniel Greenfield

Did you bury a teenage girl alive after shooting her? Are you on death row after a string of crimes too gruesome to describe? Or are you just a member of Al Qaeda dedicated to destroying America?

If so progressives will fight for you. Just dial 1-800-IAM-VICTIM and the leftist waiting to take your call will insist on your presumption of innocence. Its activists, reporters and lawyers will exploit every pretext to get you off the hook and they will call that justice.

The judicial process, they will say, matters more than public safety, public outrage or the victims.

When the crime wave set loose by their own activism flooded the country they clung to Blackstone’s formulation of “It is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer.” As murders, rapes and robberies rose, the value of that formulation went up from ten to ten thousand.

But it had to be the right ten thousand.

Leftist lynch mobs rioting in Ferguson, marching through Manhattan and screaming in Oakland assert that the presumption of innocence doesn’t apply to police officers or white Hispanics. Their poses of victimization with their cries of “Black lives matter” and “I can’t breathe” disguise what they really are.

They were protesting before the case moved forward. They have continued protesting after the verdict was in. That’s not a call for justice. It’s a lynch mob that knows what the verdict should be and seeks to intimidate the authorities into giving it to them by taking the law into their own hands.
