Dave Heineman has approved his state’s portion of the Keystone XL pipeline, explaining that its revised route avoids areas that critics had earlier claimed were environmentally sensitive. The Alberta-to-Texas pipeline would create more than 5,500 Nebraska jobs during its construction period and support 1,000 permanent jobs through 2030. During the project’s lifetime, […]
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/frank-crimi/the-selling-of-syrias-refugee-child-brides/print/ A growing legion of Muslim men from the Mideast and Europe are scouring Syrian refugee camps in order to purchase underage girls, some as young as 12, as child brides, many of whom end up being sold for use in temporary “pleasure marriages.” For most of the Syrian women and girls who have fled […]
Don’t miss this special episode of The Glazov Gang in which Mike Finch, the Chief Operating Officer at the David Horowitz Freedom Center and Dwight Schultz, a Hollywood actor who played Murdock on NBC’s The-A-Team, discuss: Jihad Rising. The discussion occurred in Part I, during which the Gang focused on Hillary’s Benghazi testimony and the catastrophic failure it reflected in Obama’s handling of the terror war. In Part II, the Gang unraveled why the Unholy Alliance is waging a war on heroic truth-teller, Rep. Michele Bachmann. Watch both segments of the two-part series below:
Part I: Jihad Rising.
Part II: The Muslim Brotherhood in the Obama Administration.

Because one Huma Abedin just isn’t enough.
The Obama administration is covertly recruiting Muslims to work at the State Department as Foreign Service officers representing the United States in one of 265 American embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions worldwide. It appears to be part of the administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes a variety of controversial moves.
Ward held a 90-minute seminar at a recent convention sponsored by two groups—Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA)—with known ties to radical Islam. Both nonprofits are associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, which is known as the parent organization of Hamas and al Qaeda. In fact, the Investigative Project on Terrorism reports that MAS was founded as the U.S. chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood which strives to indoctrinate the world with Islamic Sharia law.
Yet there was a U.S. State Department official, side by side at a radical Islamic powwow in Chicago with a number of speakers who advocate violent jihad. Among them was Kifah Mustapha, a fundraiser at terrorist organization (Holy Land Foundation) convicted of funneling millions to Hamas and Jamal Badawi, a MAS founder who praised the jihad of Gaza terrorists during a speech titled “Understanding Jihad and Martyrdom.”
The conference that Ward conducted focused on career opportunities for Muslim youth. Here is how the event was billed: “Besides being a citizenship duty, there are benefits that Muslims can add to the American Muslim community and the global Muslim world by joining the US Foreign Services. This session will shed light on the different career opportunities for Muslim youth in the US Foreign Services Department. It will also clear any concerns that many people have feared about pursuing in this career.”
What about the concerns of Americans who may be concerned that Obama Inc. has decided to recruit members of Islamist Supremacist groups and supporters of Islamic terrorism into the diplomatic corps of the United States?
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/david-j-rusin/cair-leader-runs-for-new-york-city-council-2/print/ Zead Ramadan, board president of the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), is eyeing a bigger platform from which to promote his Islamist agenda: a seat on the New York City Council. If he prevails, the city that endured 9/11 will count among its lawmakers a senior official in an […]
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/ben-shapiro/hollywood-slow-jams-with-the-news-media/print/ Back during the 2012 campaign, NBC late night host Jimmy Fallon – he of the pathological inability to keep a straight face – hosted President Barack Obama. Or rather, Barack Obama invited himself on Fallon’s program to “slow jam the news.” What did this constitute? Obama sat behind Fallon onstage and essentially read a […]
http://frontpagemag.com/2013/caroline-glick/about-the-next-government/print/ It is still difficult to assess how Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will govern in his next government. The public has little interest in begging the Palestinians to return to negotiations. But then the Israeli public has rarely had much interest in pursuing fruitless deals with unreformed Palestinian terrorists. The only reason we continue to […]

That donor, Salamon Melgen, […]

Writes David Singer:
‘Amos Oz represents the perfect example of a writer of stories and tales who should stick to writing and not trade on his unrivalled excellence and international recognition in that field to try and influence the course of Israeli politics.
This becomes embarrassingly evident when considering his political opinions disclosed in an article written for the New York Times by Roger Cohen on 28 January.
His introductory remarks to Cohen are indeed promising:
“Most Israelis would wave goodbye to the West Bank but they don’t want to be suckers, they don’t want the Gaza scenario to repeat itself”
Israelis were really taken for suckers after unilaterally evacuating Gaza in 2005 – receiving in return the indiscriminate firing of thousands of rockets into Israeli civilian population centres as thank you presents since then.
Israelis will not be suckered into suffering a repeat performance of such war crimes emanating from any areas of the West Bank ceded by them to the Arabs.
Oz maintains that there is:
“a silent consensus that the occupied territories do not matter that much. Israelis are no longer interested. They vote with their feet. They don’t go there, except for the settlers and right-wing extremists. This means that if Israelis can be reassured that by renouncing the West Bank they are not going to get a lousy deal – they are quietly ready to do it.”
Israel offered to renounce its claims to more than 90 per cent of the West Bank in 2000/2001 and 2008 – but the Palestinian Authority insisted that millions of Arabs be given the right to emigrate to Israel and that any newly created state not be demilitarised.
This was the kind of lousy deal that Oz must have had in mind when talking to Cohen.
Oz insisted that at the end of the day some 70 percent on both sides – kicking and screaming and crying injustice – were ready for two states.
“If I may use a metaphor – I would say that the patient, Israeli and Palestinian, is unhappily ready for surgery, while the doctors are cowards.”
The Palestinian patient seems strangely disinterested in submitting to such surgery – still insisting after 20 years of negotiations that such surgery requires cutting up the Israeli patient for spare parts.
Oz is quite prepared to brand Israel’s recently elected Prime Minister a coward.
The blood libel cartoons and the Mohammed cartoons, even if equally offensive, show the difference in the reactions of two peoples at loggerheads
Only on a BBC radio call-in show in Britain could you have heard listeners phoning in to express how the West would get what it has coming to it for a peasant-like film being uploaded to YouTube by some anonymous character in the United States.
But that is precisely what I heard, when as a guest on the BBC Asian Network last year, I was asked to take part in a phone-in discussion with listeners about the “Innocence of Muslims” film.
At the time, protests in Pakistan, Libya and other Muslim countries terrified pusillanimous Western leaders into apologising for the freedom of expression, or freedom to offend. The fallout was the death of an American ambassador and diplomatic staff, although the links to the protests in this case are spurious.
The same of course can be reflected upon of the firebombing of the Charlie Hebdo office in 2011, and of the response on the streets of Britain when a Danish newspaper published a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed. Hundreds died. Property was burned. Unknown numbers of people were injured.
Against this backdrop, I have been assessing the implications of the Benjamin Netanyahu cartoon over the past 48 hours.
