GERALD WALPIN:The NSA Program in Real-World Perspective Reality, logic, and history need be applied to hysteria of some concerning NSA’s possession of all phone numbers called by phones of Americans and even, some say, the addresses from and to all emails. Consider the same law enforcement tactic used successfully to catch domestic criminals. Just recently, a dozen of similar-type robberies by […]

THE ISLAMIST WIND IN BRITAIN: ENZA FERRERI Over the last weekend there have been two more street attacks on soldiers in Britain, one of which was fatal.  On Saturday, the Yorkshire town of Barnsley in northern England honored soldiers with parades and celebrations for its Armed Forces Day. One of the soldiers, who had returned from the Falkland Islands just hours […]

RYAN MAURO: IT IS TIME TO CALLNIGERIA’S SLAUGHTERERS OF CHILDREN TERRORISTS…. The Clarion Project has started a petition to designate the Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram as—well, a terrorist group. The Obama Administration’s desire to end the war on terror and not pick any new fights is overriding common-sense and moral clarity. The United Kingdom has just branded Boko Haram as a terrorist group, so […]

GOVERNMENT APPROVED RACE RIOTS: MATTHEW VADUM **** The Obama administration deployed government-paid community organizers to Sanford, Florida after the shooting death of Trayvon Martin last year in order to foment racial tensions, newly released government documents show. The news came as the Obama administration publicly pretended to be concerned at the prospect of ugly race riots breaking out across America in […]

JOHN WOHLSTETTER: THE DAY AMERICA DIED It was a tragic coincidence that Monday, April 1, 2013 was both the last day of the Jewish celebration of Passover and the 34th anniversary of the 1979 referendum establishing the Islamic Republic of Iran, under the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. Ironically as well, it was the day after Western Christendom’s Easter Sunday. At noon […]

Muslim Chutzpah by LT. COLONEL JAMES G. ZUMWALT, USMC (RET) Only the Hebrew word “chutzpah” appropriately describes it but a recent demand of the Vatican by Egypt’s senior Sunni cleric Grand Imam of al-Azhar Ahmed al-Tayeb screams for its use. To better understand why, a brief history of recent Muslim/Catholic relations is necessary. In 2006, ties between Muslims and Catholics were severed by the […]

HERB LONDON: EGYPT ABOUT TO FACE REALITY The skies over Cairo were filled with celebratory fireworks as Egypt’s military officers removed president Mohammed Morsi, suspended the Islamic Constitution and installed an interim government presided over by a senior jurist. But these fireworks could be succeeded by a series of new fireworks that are distant from celebration. At the moment, secularists are […]


Two recent answers to questions pertaining to the Middle East Peace Process by British government ministers reveal a stark bias in their approach to the conflict

It’s not like me to harp on and on about something like the Middle East Peace Process (ahem), but I thought in order to further illustrate the unacceptable bias that permeates from within the Foreign and Commowealth Office in Britain, and indeed from the mouths of ‘Conservative’ ministers, I would show you the responses to two parliamentary questions recently tabled in the House of Commons and House of Lords.

The first question, by Dr. Matthew Offord, reads:

“To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will make representations to the Palestinian Authority about reports that PA TV has broadcast a video calling on Palestinians to raise flags over all Israeli cities and villages.” (163423) (Question tabled on Wednesday, July 3 2013)

The answer from Alistair Burt, Minister for the Middle East, is riddled with excuses made for one side:

“Recent reports have concluded that both parties to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict need to do more to promote a positive portrayal of each other, reflecting the principles of co-existence, tolerance, justice and human dignity. The UK regularly condemns incitement and registers our concerns with both sides. The British Consul General in Jerusalem called on the Palestinian Authority to avoid incitement in a speech addressed to the then Prime Minister Hamdallah on 19 June.

Guardian in mother of all pro-terror suspect fiascos, again
The Guardian yet again runs support for a great Islamist hater; advocate of murdering Jews and apostates from Islam.

From the newspaper that gave you tears at the fall of the Berlin Wall at its 20th anniversary, blow-back-the-yanks-deserved-it over 9/11, platforms for Hamas, and the whole general hate campaign against Israel, we have a sweet and lovely one over the landmark deportation to Jordan from Britain of one Abu Qatada this week.

Qatada was described by Spanish prosecutors, among many others, as “the spiritual leader” of al-Qaeda in Europe and there has been a struggle lasting over a decade to get him deported from the UK. True to form, he has had the support of anti-Western apologists who, in some cases even befriended him.

This is from Guardian columnist Victoria Brittain. Just a couple of juicy snippets:

“Our security services and politicians turned this man into an Islamic counter-terrorism myth. If instead they had chosen to talk to him, as I have many times, they would have found that the man behind the myth is a scholar with wide intellectual and cultural interests. He wrote books while he was in prison. His home is filled with books. His children have excelled at school, with help and encouragement from his daily phone calls from prison.”

Kids, schools, books? Goodness. But there’s more:

Disorder: Judge Recesses Zimmerman Trial, Excludes Damning Evidence: Bob Owens Trayvon Martin’s phone had hundreds of messages discussing criminal behavior, including trafficking black-market firearms. The State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman took a wild turn late Tuesday evening, as defense attorney Don West got in a heated conversation with Judge Debra Nelson just before 10:oo p.m. Nelson had just expressed her intent to block […]
