DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE WEEK THAT WAS….PART ONE

BUMPS IN THE ROAD

Charles Woods, the father of murdered SEAL Tyrone Woods, has given several interviews and described meeting Obama and Hillary Clinton.

[Obama] when he came over to our little area, I could tell, he kind of just mumbled. You know, “I’m sorry.” His face was looking at me, but his eyes were looking over my shoulder like he could not look me in the eye. And it was not a sincere, “I’m really sorry” you know “that your son died.” It was a totally insincere, more of a whining type, “I’m sorry.” And it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. It just didn’t feel right.

And Hillary had something even better to offer him. “She did not appear to be one bit sincere at all. She mentioned that thing about, “We’re going to have that person arrested and prosecuted that did the video.”

This acknowledges that the prosecution of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Mark Basseley Youssef has nothing to do with parole violations. It’s a political prosecution with the decision made by the White House and the State Department. And that makes the man who has been detained for a month, America’s first political prisoner in generations.

Clinton’s State Department botched Benghazi and the entire illegal Libyan War and when she met the father of the man who stood and fought against impossible odds, facing down the killers who had been set loose by the Obama Administration’s illegal war, all that she could think to tell him was that the Bill of Rights and the Constitution that his son had sworn an oath to support and defend would be trashed to appease his son’s killers.

But those are just non-optimal bumps in the road, as Obama would put it.

We are learning more of what happened in Benghazi every single day.

Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed orders and left a CIA safe house to try and save those at the consulate.

And once there they fought a desperate fight, evacuating the consulate employees and “for over two hours they were able to fight back against approximately 200 al-Qaeda terrorists”. Numerous calls were issued for help and went unanswered.

Instead of their bravery holding the line and inspiring a rescue effort, they were left to die under orders from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta held a pathetic news conference explaining that there wasn’t enough intel to act. The photo that illustrates this article comes from that conference.

We — we quickly responded, as General Dempsey said, in terms of deploying forces to the region. We had FAST platoons in the region. We had ships that we had deployed off of Libya. And we were prepared to respond to any contingency and certainly had forces in place to do that.

But — but the basic principle here — basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on;

OUR PRESIDENT: A CRASS ACT….ETHEL FENIG

Now you stay classy, Mr. President Ethel C. Fenig

Fresh from posting the too cutesy Your First Time voting video for the hormonally churning under 30 female voter crowd, the President Barack Obama (D) re election campaign gives equal time to the hormonally raging under 16 male voter contingent, posting a caricature of Mitt Romney (R) in a dunce hat on its site.

Yep, a man who graduated from Harvard Law and Business Schools, started multiple companies with private capital that created thousands of jobs while making life easier for many, turned around the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah from a sure failure into a shining success, ran and won–without resorting to dirty tricks–and then successfully governed as a Republican governor of deeply Democratic Massachusetts is a dunce compared to…

Oh.

Incidentally the site’s url, titled Sums It Up, nicely sums up the mentality of the Obama campaign and governance style.

Another campaign visual on the site informs us of President Obama’s America Forward Tour: 8 States in 48 Hours. Say, who is minding the store back in Washington, taking those 3am phone calls from oh say, Benghazi, or just keeping this country safe and productive anywhere while Obama is out peddling changing hope, hopelessly changed? And is this forward, backward, sideways tour paid for by taxpayers or the re election campaign?

Oh.

‘Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?’ Biden’s bizarre question angers father of Navy SEAL who died in Benghazi attack

VP made inappropriate comment to Charles Woods, father of SEAL Tyrone
Father angered by White House reaction to deadly assault in Benghazi
Said meeting Obama was ‘like shaking hands with a dead fish’
Accused Hillary of not telling the truth when she linked consulate raid to anti-Muslim YouTube video

The father of one of the Navy SEALs who was killed in the Libya consulate attack has criticised the White House reaction to his son’s death – especially a bizarre and obscene comment Joe Biden made to him.

Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, said he thought Barack Obama had ‘no remorse’ over the attack and felt Hillary Clinton was ‘not telling the truth’.

And he revealed that at the ceremony for the return of Tyrone’s body, the Vice President approached his family and asked, ‘Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?’

Mr Woods added that the President seemed cold and distant at the time, saying: ‘Shaking hands with him, quite frankly, was like shaking hands with a dead fish.’

BRUCE KESLER:Democrats: Party Of National Security Weakness For Another generation

Click here: Democrats: Party Of National Security Weakness For Another generation – Maggie’s Farm
http://maggiesfarm.anotherdotcom.com/archives/20868-Democrats-Party-Of-National-Security-Weakness-For-Another-generation.html
The cumulative evidence is now evident to all with even bad eyesight that Benghazi is sad proof of what conservative critics have been saying for the past four years, that President Obama, his appointees and administration lack the dedication, insight and guts to defend the United States honorably or resolutely.
Democrats were known as the Party of national security weakness for a generation after their betrayal of South Vietnam and Jimmy Carter’s callowness in the face of the Iranian radicals. Aging memories, war tiredness, and big lies from the Obama administration managed to recover some national security credibility.

Now, it’ll take another generation for Democrats to, depending upon circumstances, recover some national security credibility. How focused and resolute Republicans behave will be important. Otherwise, abandon all hope for the US.
The latest revelationof betrayal of the men on the ground fighting desperately in Benghazi makes every veteran I know furious, makes every conservative voice howl in anger, but has yet to break the silence at Yahoo News, Washington Post, New York Times. They may be trying to run out the clock to November 6. That finger in the dike will not hold, possibly before November 6 and certainly after. The maggots in the chain off command in the White House, Pentagon, State Dept., and CIA responsible deserve to have their names engraved on a prominent monument to cowardice.

PART TWO: IF YOU ARE JEWISH….BY MARTIN SHERMAN

http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Columnists/Article.aspx?id=289358

The prospect of a White House incumbent with an inherent affinity for Israel’s adversaries and unshackled by considerations of reelection is one that must be considered with the utmost seriousness.Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided – Barack Obama to AIPAC, June 4, 2008

Well the issue of it being undivided… I said immediately after the speech that that word [“undivided”] was poorly chosen– Barack Obama on ABC, July 23, 2008
There should not be a shred of doubt by now… I have Israel’s back – Barack Obama to AIPAC, March 4, 2012

It [having Israel’s back] was not a military doctrine that we were laying out for any particular military action…. What it means is that, historically, we have always cooperated with Israel… just like we do with Great Britain, just like we do with Japan – Barack Obama, at the White House, March 4, 2012
By most accounts – mine included – Barack Obama gave a sterling performance on Monday in the third debate with Mitt Romney. Attempts by Republican pundits, like the usually perceptive Charles Krauthammer, to declare a Romney victory, were largely unconvincing.

Only the most biased observer could deny that Obama’s performance was significantly superior to that of his rival.

JORDAN’S NEXT LEADER? AND NOW THE TERRORIST NEXT DOOR: MUDAR ZAHRAN…..SEE NOTE PLEASE

http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3413/jordan-next-leader

NONE OF THIS….REPEAT, NONE OF THIS WOULD HAVE HAPPENED WERE IT NOT FOR CAMP DAVID ACCORDS AND OSLO SURRENDER….WHILE JUDEA AND SAMARIA WERE BOTH CAREFULLY CONTROLLED BY THE LATE KING HUSSEIN AND ISRAEL ….THEY HAD EACH OTHER’S BACK…..BY DECLARING A WILLINGNESS TO VACATE THE ISRAELIS ENABLED THE RISE OF THE PLO AND THE RATCHETING OF DEMANDS FROM THE LOCAL ARABS….RSK

Al-Rantisi claims in his article that “The US government and its intelligence services will support the Muslim Brotherhood goals of coming to power.” The Muslim Brotherhood dismissed Al-Rantisi’s claims and sued him for damages. Nonetheless, Al-Rantisi stick by the claims he had made when questioned by Al Arabiyya.

It might be helpful now to start wondering what sort of ideas Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood, and its leader, Controller General SheikhHamam Sai’d, will advance if they seize power in Jordan — possibly with the blessing and encouragement of the United States.

Sheikh Sai’d, of Palestinian origin, was elected to the leadership if Jordan’s Muslim Brotherhood in 2008 by its hardline faction. They support a partnership with Hamas and the overthrow of Middle Eastern leaders who side with the United States.

AL HA’ARETZ AND GIDEON LEVY ….THEIR LIBEL OF ISRAEL: BEN DROR YEMINI…PLEASE READ IT ALL

http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/haaretz-gideon-levy-and-the-israel-apartheid-canard/

urvey: Most Israeli Jews would support apartheid regime,” the headline in Haaretz screamed earlier this week. If that were true, it indeed would have been a worrying development. But the information below will demonstrate that the article contains some of the most blatant anti-Israel lies published in recent years. And Gideon Levy, the one and only – who is read more in English than in Hebrew — was awarded the task of explaining the survey to the whole wide world.

The result? Israel is apparently not merely on the way to becoming South Africa. It has already turned into South Africa. The lie has been making waves the world over, spreading like wildfire. The goal has been achieved.

It’s not easy to chase down a lie that has already gained traction worldwide. But it seems there is no escaping the attempt, at least. So we’ll bring the facts — just the facts — and let them speak for themselves. Hopefully, someone is listening.
Gideon A and Gideon B

Gideon Levy’s name graces the byline of the main article, which included the survey results. The same Gideon Levy also wrote the accompanying commentary article. But Levy was probably so elated, that he did not even notice that he implicates himself in lies.

According to the survey, 53 percent of Israelis are not opposed to having an Arab neighbor. That much is clear. But when Gideon Levy passes from reporting to overt incitement masquerading as “interpretation,” he writes that “the majority doesn’t want… Arab neighbors.” Could it be that the second Gideon Levy didn’t properly read what was written by the first Gideon Levy?

Moving on: According to the survey, 33% of Israelis support revoking the voting rights of Israeli Arabs. That’s a grave figure in and of itself. But when it comes to the “interpretation,” Levy writes that “the majority doesn’t want Arabs to vote for the Knesset.” Again, Levy the interpreter seems not to have read Levy the reporter. Is he capable of formulating a sentence that includes only the truth? And where in the hell is his editor? Was there not a single editor who could properly parse the results of the survey?

But then again, the lies were designed to lend Levy the justification for his political conclusion; namely, that the possibility of a Jewish and democratic state of Israel has expired. In the past, I wrote that Gideon Levy is “Baron of the Falsehood Industry.” Levy insists on providing more and more evidence to this effect.
Extraordinary deductive logic

According to the survey, 69% of Israelis oppose the granting of voting rights to Palestinian Arabs if the territories are annexed.

Sounds scary.

The real reason that most Israelis oppose the annexation of the territories, however, is, most likely, that they would like to avoid a bi-national state or the risk of an apartheid one. But Haaretz pulled off an extraordinary feet of deductive logic, stating that most Israelis support apartheid. It’s like a survey indicating that most Israelis are opposed to violence — but that if they were to be attacked by a mugger, they would react violently – breeding a report with the title “Most Israelis support violence.” This is the story of the Haaretz headline. It’s based on a purely hypothetical, or, more precisely, manipulative situation.
Good neighbors

Let’s stay briefly with the issue of neighbors. Many surveys in Western countries show that white indigenous people are not enthusiastic about foreigner neighbors. Forty-two percent of the French, according to one survey, think of the Muslim presence as a “threat,” 68% think Muslims do not integrate, and 61% blame the Muslims themselves for their supposed failure to integrate. Similar results were observed in each and every country where this kind of survey was carried out.

That does not make all Europeans racists. It indicates that there are concerns, even if they aren’t always justified. The difference between Israel and other Western countries is that Israel is in the throes of a conflict. Jewish Israelis are faced with a barrage of Islamic incitement; and yet, most are not opposed to having an Arab neighbor, and support the political rights of the Arabs, even according to the results of this distorted survey.

This is actually a badge of honor for the average Israeli.
Michael Ben-Ari — average Israeli?

According to the survey, 47% of Israelis support a population transfer of Israeli Arabs. That’s interesting. Historically, Israel has had only one party that supported a population transfer, and even then only on the condition that it would be consensual. That party won only three seats in the Knesset.

How could the hand of Levy’s editor not tremble? Wasn’t he aware of the facts?

Currently, there isn’t a single political party in Israel that supports apartheid. One right-wing party, which won three seats, has a member who succeeded to be elected despite the fact that his ideology is reminiscent of Kahanism. He is the only current Knesset member of whom it might be said that he supports a population transfer. One of 120.

According to Haaretz, any party to run on a platform of population transfer and apartheid would win an automatic majority of seats in Knesset.

In view of the circumstances, wherein Hamas is the largest party in the territories, and types like Azmi Bishara, Raed Salah and Haneen Zoabi are the loudest speakers for the Palestinian Arabs, the Jewish population has also produced some radical, fringe elements. We must oppose them. But most Israelis reveal an amazing maturity, and consistently vote for parties that support equal rights for Israeli Arabs.
Bothered by inequality

A survey conducted by the “SIKUY” association, which no one can accuse of harboring any right-wing inclinations, found that “60% of [Israeli] Jews believe that promoting the equality of Arab citizens is in the interest of the state.” Sixty percent! In addition, the survey found that “53% of the Jewish population in Israel is bothered by the inequality of Israeli Arabs,” and that “40% of Jews are willing to pay a personal price in order to achieve the goal of civil equality in Israel.” Indeed, a personal price for equality, for a sense of partnership.

This survey was more comprehensive and thorough than the survey ordered by a political organization that probably marked its goal on advance.
The other leftists

A survey conducted by the Jerusalem Institute for Israel Studies just last year found that 48% of the Jews in Israel support (vs. 43% who oppose) a “package deal,” including a mobilization of citizenry and government, to improve the situation of the Israeli Arabs within the framework of “inclusive citizenship.” But this survey received no front-page headlines.

The survey was much more serious and far more thoughtful, and its academic staff comprised mostly leftists. Not the kind of leftists that characterize Haaretz, but the kind that want to investigate, to know, to propose a framework to improve the current situation, which indeed merits improvement.
Intifada and equality

A multi-year survey reveals a link between the political situation and support for equality; in 1985, only 44% supported equality; in 1999, 73% supported equality; in 2003, only 47% supported equality; and in 2007, 55% supported equality. That is, since 1985, only once, at the height of the intifada in 2003, were supporters of equality not in the majority.

The survey also indicates that if you take away the hostility stemming from the conflict, the citizens of Israel are characterized by support for civil equality far more than they can be characterized as apartheid supporters.
Refuting reality

The Arabs of Israel, according to all sane and sensible measures, enjoy greater civil rights — far greater — than the population of any other country in the Middle East.

Just recently, a leading Arab website, Arab News, published an article by Abdoltif Al-Milham showing that reality. This important article, which attempted, among other things, to counter anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic falsehoods about Israel as an apartheid state, also received prominent billing in the second-largest Arab channel, Al Arabiya. But not to worry: Even if the world occasionally receives glimmers of the truth, Haaretz takes care to return the lies to center-stage. It will readily refute the reality with the help of a dubious survey that the paper fell on like a trophy.
