http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-10-23/hezbollah-prepares-for-a-wider-war-than-it-may-want.html Hezbollah’s launching of a pilotless spy plane, which was shot down by Israel’s air force in the southern part of the country in early October, has been seen as more evidence that the Lebanese militia is preparing for war. Israelis assume that the drone was gathering visual intelligence to help Hezbollah in its goal […]
“The more people die of Muslim violence, the more the principle of the innocence of Muslims must be upheld, because it is no longer just the innocence of Muslims that is at stake, but the innocence of the political establishment that has looked away while the fires burned. And a political establishment determined to protect its innocence will go to any length, and political prisoners are the least of it.
After the Arab Spring and the Libyan War, it has become impossible to untangle the guilt of Obama from the guilt of Islamists. That is the dirty secret that the fire marshals of the establishment are determined to protect. The cover-up of Islam’s conduct has become their cover-up of their own conduct as well. So long as Islam can claim innocence, they can claim innocence as well, and those who challenge the innocence of Muslims and by extension the innocence of the political establishment will become the first political prisoners.”
Ten years ago most left-thinking liberals were constantly worried about the erosion of civil liberties under the War on Terror though they could rarely name an instance where an American citizen had actually experienced such an erosion.
This was after all before the days when naked scanners and drone strikes had entered the vocabulary and the best they could do was to haul out Jose Padilla, aka Abdullah al-Muhajir, ACLU’s choirboy of the month, a Brooklyn-born convert to Islam who was being held in jail for no reason at all except aiding terrorists and plotting to build a dirty bomb.
Ten years later the lefty civil liberties types were proven right. The War on Terror did erode our civil liberties and America’s first political prisoner in generations has spent a month in jail for making an inconvenient movie at an inconvenient time.
When Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, one of the Navy SEALS who died fighting in Benghazi, met with Hillary Clinton, the Secretary of State assured him that, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.” And they got him, officially on charges of violating parole, unofficially on charges of violently offending violent Muslims.
The woman whose policy had overthrown the Libyan government and then placed a barely defended consulate in the middle of a city of Jihadists, did not promise the grieving father that his son’s killers would pay. She promised him that the man who offended his son’s killers would pay. Not only would his son be the first casualty of that appeasement policy, but the Constitution that his son had sworn to support and defend would be the second casualty.
Mark Basseley Youssef is not the first filmmaker sent to prison by a Democrat in the White House for making the wrong kind of movie and interfering with his foreign policy. That would be Robert Goldstein who made the The Spirit of ’76, a movie about the American Revolution, at a time when Woodrow Wilson was trying to get Americans deeper into World War I.

Israel’s Muslim Population is in Decline
AMBASSADOR (RET.) YORAM ETTINGER HAS BEEN ANALYZING DEMOGRAPHIC TREND FOR YEARS…PLEASE VISIT HIS SITE AND READ:
The Arab Demographic Revolution
Israel’s Central Bureau of Statistics has released its latest figures which show a marked decline in the growth of the Muslim population since 2000.
The Muslim percentage of the general population has dropped since 2000 indicating that the non-Muslim population is growing faster than its Muslim population and their population growth has dropped from 3.8 percent in 2000 to 2.5 percent. This growth rate however is still higher than either the Jewish population at 1.7 percent or the Christian population at 1.3 percent.
The average Muslim birth rate fell from 4.7 children per woman in 2000 to 3.5 children per woman now. That is still higher than the Jewish birth rate of 3.0 or the Christian birth rate of 2.0. The Israeli Muslim birth rate is higher than that of neighboring countries, Syria 3.0, Egypt 2.9, Turkey 2.0, Lebanon, 1.9, likely due to the superior economic situation in Israel for Muslims. A similar phenomenon occurs within the Muslim diaspora in the West.

Oh what a tangled web we weave,

Sir Walter Scott, Marmion, Canto vi. Stanza 17.
This issue is no peccadillo and Watergate and Contragate and Monicagate are small potatoes compared to this doozie, where Petraeus (CIA) Panetta (Defense) Clinton (Sec. of State) and Obama (the Prez-) are waltzing around compounding deception, prevarication and cover-up.

The Weekly Standard
Friday, October 26, 2012
Breaking news on Benghazi: The CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA Director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.” So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need?
