http://www.rightsidenews.com/2012092417093/us/homeland-security/the-basics-of-war-and-how-the-us-went-wrong.html In view of the public frustration with a decade of largely unsuccessful U.S. war in Iraq and Afghanistan and the impending cuts to the U.S. military budget, there is an active debate at present as to what military strategy and force structure should be fashioned for the future.

Hypocrisy & Danger: Apologizing for Offense to Muslims : Daniel Mandel and Mort Klein

http://www.algemeiner.com/2012/09/24/hypocrisy-danger-apologizing-for-offense-to-muslims/# In recent days, the whole world has witnessed the spectacle of the Obama Administration from President Barack Obama down apologizing for the fact that some Americans exercised their right of free speech to make a video, ‘Innocence of Muslims,’ that offended Muslims. “Hateful,” “offensive,” “reprehensible,” and “disgusting” were some of the grave terms used […]

Obama to UN: “Crude and Disgusting Video Sparked Outrage” Katie Pavlich

ALLEN WEST ON OBAMA’S SPEECH AT THE U.N. TODAY

The President continues to offer up apologies….When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide…

In his speech today to the United Nations, President Obama stated six times that the attacks across the Islamic world are attributed to a silly video. Furthermore, he refused to use the words terrorist attack in referring to what occurred in Benghazi Libya at our US Consulate on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. He continues to offer up apologies instead of defending our hard earned First Amendment right to freedom of speech and expression. There is no message to this silly video trailer, and it is beneath the dignity and esteem of the Office of the President of the United States to mention it at all. When tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant. I know about the UN Resolution 1618 which would make any statement deemed by the Organization of Islamic Countries (OIC) “offensive’ to Islam a crime…..NOT ON MY WATCH FELLAS!

My statement to the United Nations would have been, “The future does not belong to those who attack our Embassies and Consulates and kill our Ambassadors. The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence”

ANDREW McCARTHY: OBAMA’S FLEETING MOMENT OF CLARITY ON THE ARAB SPRING FEVER

http://pjmedia.com/andrewmccarthy/2012/09/25/fleeting-moment-of-spring-fever-clarity/ Don’t get me wrong, I’m as appalled as anyone that an American president who ran off to a Vegas fundraiser while the country was still mourning an ambassador and three other Americans killed in Libya is so insouciant that he’d follow that up by referring to the ongoing atrocities in the Middle East as […]

MY SAY: YOM KIPPUR 2012 AND 1973

In observance of Yom Kippur there will be no postings tomorrow.

At sunset this evening Yom Kippur (the Day of Atonement) will commence. We the Jewish people pray and repent and reflect on who will be written in the “Book of Life” and who in the “Book of Death”, as well as “who will rest and who will wander, who will live in harmony and who will be harried … who will be degraded and who will be exalted.”

We should also reflect on Yom Kippur of 1973:

As Jews throughout the world were fasting and praying The combined forces of Arab/Moslem Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Tunisia launched a surprise attack against Israel. Over one million troops against a nation whose sole crime was that it is a Jewish nation.

After terrible losses, 3,000 dead and an equal number injured, Israel regained its footing and won the war, which is when all the harpies in the United Nations and in our State Department shrieked for a cease fire. They are forever condemned to eternal degradation.

To all Israel’s friends and supporters who buck the prevailing political correctness and stand with Israel and the Jewish people, we will pray that you be inscribed in The Book of Life….may you rest and live in harmony.

JAMES DELINGPOLE: THE QUEEN ASKS “WHY COULDN’T WE ARREST ABU HAMZA?” *****

http://blogs.telegraph.co.uk/news/jamesdelingpole/100182499/the-queen-why-couldnt-we-arrest-abu-hamza/

Like many razor-sharp 86-year-olds, the Queen must spend an awful lot of time wondering what the hell became of the Britain she knew in her youth, and of all those commonsense values and that basic decency which saw us through trials like the Second World War.

Unlike the rest of her generation, she is constitutionally prevented from saying this aloud. But just occasionally her private views slip out. And when they do, my how you wish she was actually running the country herself rather than leaving it to idiots like her useless fifth cousin Dave.

Take her views on the evil, hook-handed terrorist Abu Hamza. According to the BBC’s security correspondent Frank Gardner (himself a victim of the kind of Islamist violence Hamza so heartily advocates) the Queen thinks that he’s a bad thing. So much so that she once lobbied the then Home Secretary to have him put away.

Gardner told the Today programme:

“She spoke to the Home Secretary at the time and said, ‘surely this man must have broken some laws, my goodness, why is he still at large?’

“Because he was conducting these radical activities, he called Britain a toilet, he was incredibly anti-British, and yet he was sucking up money from this country for a long time. He was a huge embarrassment to Muslims, who condemned him.”

The Queen was right, of course.
