THANKS TO E-PAL ROGER G. Thank you, Natan. (Sharansky)Natan is the tallest chairman of the Jewish Agency. The second tallest. No, the tallest, the tallest, because he’s a giant, he’s a giant of the Jewish people, and he’s a battle-scarred veteran of the campaign to secure the Jewish future. We are of the same age, […]
CHARLES’S PUBLIC STATEMENTS ABOUT ISLAM
The future Charles III has made several strong public statements endorsing Islam as the solution to the spiritual and cultural ills of Britain and the West. His public advocacy of Islam appears to go back to 1989, when Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued an edict (fatwa) against Salman Rushdie, a British citizen, for blaspheming the Prophet Muhammad in his novel The Satanic Verses.6 Rather than defend Rushdie’s freedom of speech, Charles reacted to the death decree by reflecting on the positive features that Islam has to offer the spiritually empty lives of his countrymen.
The U.K. branch of Islamic Relief Worldwide has announced that the Prince of Wales will be one of the featured guests at its 25th anniversary gala dinner. The announcement also indicates that the event was endorsed by British Foreign Secretary David Miliband whose endorsement states:
The adage “history is written by the winners” is no more than a half-truth. Losers, too, have always written history and, more important, enshrined their losses in memory. A new history of Poland in World War II thus has particular significance. The Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth gradually vanished from the map of Europe at the end of the 18th century, when Russia, Prussia, and Austria divided it up among themselves; and the Poles regained their independence only in 1918. In their new republic, ethnic Poles were a majority, but Ukrainians, Belorussians, Germans and, of course, Jews constituted a large minority. The Jews alone made up more than 10 per cent of the country’s population. Mustn’t any history of Poland in the Second World War therefore put the Jews and the Holocaust at the center? If it does not, is that originality or revisionism? Halik Kochanski’s The Eagle Unbowed: Poland and the Poles in the Second World War offers important insights into the Polish experience of the war, but her treatment of the Jewish Question is less satisfying.
Kochanski’s story of Poland in World War II blends betrayal, incompetence, uncommon bravery, and colossal failure against a backdrop of pervasive brutality. Poland’s location between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union spelled disaster; its choice of allies in Britain and France was both unavoidable and fated to fail. Lacking money, arms, and military doctrine, Poland stood little chance of defending its long borders, and fell quickly between September and October of 1939. Over the next two years, Poland was reduced to a German slave province in the west and a Soviet rump, drained of people and goods, in the east. From the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 until the end of the war, it became a vast killing ground.
Supreme Court upholds anti-terrorism program, civil libertarians be damned http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | (TCSM) The US Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled that a group of lawyers, journalists, and human rights researchers lack the necessary legal standing to challenge the constitutionality of a 2008 counterterrorism law authorizing the US government to intercept and analyze massive amounts of telecommunications […]
http://www.nationalreview.com/blogs/print/341607 Today is the 20th anniversary of the World Trade Center bombing. It also marks three weeks since the attempted murder of Lars Hedegaard, the intrepid Danish champion of free speech. These events are not unrelated. Back in 1993, there was a tireless effort to limn the WTC bombers as wanton killers. They were, we […]
HOW ABOUT “SHARIA, SHARIA, I JUST MET A CULT NAMED SHARIA, AND SUDDENLY THAT NAME WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN”…RSK
Mark Steyn’s Antidote to Burqa-Mandating Texas Teachers (Allah-la-la-la-la…)
Todd Starnes of Fox News radio reports  that Texas State Sen. Dan Patrick, chairman of the senate education committee, is launching an investigation, after outraged parents provided photographic evidence that their Lumberton (Texas) High School children were required to don burqas (and other Muslim garb), as part of an ostensible “geography lesson” on Islam.
Moreover, students, as part of this unabashed Islamophilic indoctrination process at Lumberton High School, were told by their teacher, “we’re going to change the way we perceive Islam,” who then also proceeded to instruct them to compose an essay, according to the report , “based on a Washington Post story that blamed Egypt’s troubles on democracy – instead of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Such involuntary Islamic dawa in school must be thoroughly investigated, condemned, and permanently disallowed.

http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/understanding-north-korea-and-iran?f=puball The West consistently and unwittingly cooperates with North Korea and Iran by underestimating the advancement, sophistication, and strategic implications of their nuclear weapon and missile programs. Despite North Korea’s successful long-range missile test in December 2012, and now its third successful nuclear test on February 12, 2013, the Obama administration and the press keep […]
The latest from “moderate” Libya: Four foreign Christians, including an American with dual Swedish citizenship, have been arrested on suspicion of being missionaries who have been distributing Christian literature. They were apprehended in Benghazi, the jihadist hotbed where U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were murdered in September. The missionaries could face the death penalty under Islam’s sharia law, which forbids the proselytizing of creeds other than Islam, imposes capital punishment on Muslims who convert to Christianity, and similarly discourages any speech that might sow discord among Muslims.
Ray Ibrahim picks up the story from the Guardian, quoting from an official from “Libyan security” – the outfit the Obama administration relied on after the president’s unprovoked, unauthorized war to topple the Qaddafi regime placed Islamists in de facto control of much of the country:
Discussing this case, Libyan security official Hussein Bin Hmeid, trying to justify the Islamic ban on free speech, observes: “Proselytizing is forbidden in Libya. We are a 100% Muslim country and this kind of action affects our national security.” Indeed, Muslim governments-most notably Iran’s-constantly suppress any talk of Christianity, claiming it threatens “our national security.” …
According to Benghazi lawyer and “human rights activist” Bilal Bettamer, Christians should not offend Muslims by trying to share their faith: “It is disrespectful. If we had Christianity we could have dialogue, but you can’t just spread Christianity. The maximum penalty is the death penalty. It’s a dangerous thing to do.”
http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/detail/its-not-the-bullets-baby In 2008 candidate Obama said, “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” Listen to it. After he was elected in 2008, President Obama […]
