Sunday in Manhattan there was a Jerusalem Post Policy conference. There was a panel debating the topic of Two States for Two People. Harvard Law Professor was in top form demonstrating why he has about reached his limit. Read the Jerusalem Post report ,”Dershowitz presents plan to restart peace talks”, about a truculent audience rejecting his views and according to fellow panelist and senior JP columnist Caroline Glick saying:
Following laughter from the audience, Dershowitz lashed out, saying that “It’s so easy to laugh but I have to tell you the audience today is not helpful in resolving complex and serious issues,” which lead to loud jeers and boos.
The bestselling author was booed loudly after telling audience members that they are “part of the problem” for laughing at his new framework for negotiations.
“You’re proving my point,? Dershowitz hit back, adding, “You are part of the problem, not the solution.”
The Post’s Senior Contributing Editor Caroline Glick, who was also on the panel, told the audience that she “Need[ed] to catch my breath for a second,” after Dershowitz’s comments. “It’s very nice to come in here and smack down your audience,” she intoned.
Dershowitz, she told the audience, is “nasty to those who disagree” with him.
“If you want to say that people who devote their lives to defending the Jewish state are illegitimate voices then why should I care what you have to say,” she asked Dershowitz.
Towards the end of the debate, Dershowitz alleged that those who booed him and former prime minister Ehud Olmert were not representative of American or Israeli Jewry and are “foolish.” He said he would defend his “right to tell you what I think of you and it’s not much.”


My boyfriend the bomber
Fanatic’s ex: He said I was ‘pure’ and he took my virginity. I loved him but he slapped me and tried to brainwash me to hate US like he did
AN ex-girlfriend of dead Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev has told how he tried to brainwash her into becoming a Muslim fanatic who hated America.

Nadine Ascencao, 24, said Tamerlan made her wear an Islamic hijab and pray to Allah and slapped her when she wore Western clothes.

But she was so blindly in love with the handsome boxer who had taken her virginity, she did her utmost to make him happy.

Nadine said: “I went to his mosque a couple of times and even looked into converting to make him happy. I thought, ‘This is crazy’ — but I still did it for him.

“Tamerlan had taken my virginity and said he loved me because I was pure and hadn’t been with any other guys. I was in love and scared he’d leave me if I didn’t do what he said. Looking back I had a lucky escape.”

RUTH WISSE: THE POLITICS OF YIDDISH “One cannot fully know the process of the Jewish transition into modernity without knowing what Yiddish holds,” wrote Ruth Wisse in 1985.  Since then, the scholar who is now the Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish Literature at Harvard University has done as much as anyone else on earth to let people without a command […]

For ten years we have been warning Boston politicians, media, civic and religious leaders in Boston about the radical nature of the Islamic Society of Boston at whose Cambridge mosque the two terrorist brothers sometimes attended.  What will it take to end this dangerous silence? What is it going to take to end the […]


In late 1930 the Tory leadership in Britain’s governing coalition decided to back independence for India despite the increasing, vicious sectarian violence that graphically showed India was not yet ready for the British to leave. Later, historian A.L. Rowse would link partisan self-interest to the failure of nerve and collapse of morale that lay behind the policies of the ruling caste. It was in 1931, Rowse wrote, that “the caste lost confidence in itself and, undermined by fear, it lost not only confidence but conscience. Confused in mind about everything, except the main chance––its own preservation, it survived from year to year, from month to month, from day to day, by blurring the clarity of all issues, even the most dangerous––that of the nation’s safety; it maintained its enormous majority by electoral trickery, it spoke and perhaps thought in the language of humbug, it hoped to stave off conflict . . . by offering appeasement.”

These comments can serve as a commentary on the Obama administration’s failed foreign policy. There has seldom been a coherent, sound principle behind that policy other than partisan electoral “preservation” no matter the danger to the nation’s security and interests. Consider this by no means exhaustive catalogue:

• His opposition to the war in Iraq, predicated in the main on the ideological prejudices of his progressive base and validated by war-fatigue among many Americans, lead to a failure to achieve a status-of-forces agreement that would have left enough troops to prevent the current descent into sectarian violence and nascent civil war now rending that country.

• His campaign-sloganeering that Afghanistan was the “good war” compared to Bush’s “bad war” in Iraq compelled him to send more troops into that country, but then to undermine them by announcing a date-certain for American withdrawal, thus ensuring a Taliban resurgence, even now accelerating, after we leave.

NYTIMES WHITEWASHES ISLAMIST ZAYTUNA COLLEGE: RYAN MAURO Zaytuna College was founded by three Islamists with a history of anti-American rhetoric, but you wouldn’t know that if you read the New York Times puff piece about the California school. Readers are left to believe this is a moderate Muslim institution that will “foster an American Islam” to lead the Muslim world into […]


You have probably already had the privilege of watching the heart-warming video clip of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, the mother of the Boston jihadi bombers, in which she is screaming hysterically at a CNN reporter about her indifference to her sons’ fates. She ends her tirade with a well-know jihadist expression — that informs its non-Muslim victims why they must die. Here’s the key quote, which may give you a fuzzy feeling inside:

“I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today. I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too. And I will say Allahu Akbar!”

To get the real “Islamic feel” of this maternal-jihadi disposition held by Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, watch the video clip below:

As you have also probably noticed, Muslims shout “Allahu Akbar!” in the process of killing or raping kafirs (dirty non-Muslims) – like the Muslims who recently raped two Christian women in broad daylight in Egypt. Our media, of course, always rushes to inform us that this Islamic-Arabic expression is translated as “God is Great,” so that we can all be rest assured that Islam means us no harm — and that the particular Muslims screaming it while slicing our throats have somehow misunderstood their peaceful religion somewhere along the way. The tiny problem, of course, is that, as Daniel Greenfield shrewdly crystallizes:

Allahu Akbar doesn’t mean Allah is Great, in a “Isn’t ‘Allah and the Virgins of Paradise’ a great band.” It’s more like Allah is Greatest or Superior. And if you’re on the right side of the cockpit door, the one doing the shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ means that Allah is superior to your country and to you. And one of his followers is about to do his best to show you why.

“Allahu Akbar,” in other words, is an expression of Muslim hate and superiority — which means, of course, Allah’s hate and superiority. Allah hates and is superior to all the lesser (and non-existent) gods that the kafir so insolently and ignorantly worships. And that’s why, as 67% of the Meccan Koran and 51% of the Medinan Koran mandate, the kafir needs to be reviled, subjugated and killed. The Muslim, meanwhile, who is a slave to Allah, must also not stick around too long; indeed, he needs to end his own life, sooner rather than later, for Allah – as long as it’s done in the process of killing some kafirs. The Muslim’s life on earth is, after all, by Allah’s decree, pointless, since he is completely worthless as an individual. (The very opposite of the Judeo-Christian tradition’s view of the individual.) And the only way he can get into Islamic paradise and get access to the 72 virgins is through Jihad.

This is the lovely context in which we come to understand the exhilarating life of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva. She is our Muslim Mommy Dearest. And who better for her to take after than the Palestinian Muslim Mommy Dearest: Umm Nidal (Mariam Farhat), who was known in certain circles as the Mother of Martyrs or, depending on what your milieu is, the Mother From Hell. Umm Nidal, you see, liked to engage in infanticide, particularly when it came to her own kids. She passed away this past March, but the legacy she left behind still brings tears to the eyes of Muslims around the world who loved her, and who were touched by what she did for Allah.

The left has a clearly defined set of responses to a terrorist attack. After all the hopes for a properly right wing terrorist have come to naught, it begins the long slow process of rolling back the laws and emotional attitudes stemming from the attack.

For it, terrorism, like anything else, either fits into its narrative or conflict with it. The narrative
defines the world, past, present and future, in terms of the political agenda of the left. An event that clashes with the agenda must have its meaning changed so that the power of the narrative is restored.

Most violent attacks, from a street mugging to September 11, cause people to seek out security by combating the attackers. The left’s task is to shift the narrative so that people see it in an entirely different way. The perpetrators become the victims by the trick of transforming the real victims into the real perpetrators. The lesson shifts from going on the offense to learning not to give offense.

The process is gradual and the playbook is infinite. Weapons of mass distraction are brought out. New villains are introduced and the emotional resonance of the events is drowned in ridicule. The tones are also many, from urging everyone to let love defeat hate to displays of virulent hate against the people “truly” stirring up trouble, but they all share a common agenda. Only the tactics vary.

Unlike the right, the left is systematic. It studies structures and people and plots its lines of attack accordingly. It pits emotion against emotion and law against law. It waits for the initial shock to fade before launching its first wave of attacks over process.
