The Coming Post-Obama Renaissance Posted By Victor Davis Hanson URL to article: http://pajamasmedia.com/victordavishanson/the-post-obama-renaissance/ The Parting of the Clouds In every literary, historical or cinematic masterpiece, times must grow darkest before the sunrise and deliverance. Tolkien worked that classical theme to great effect. A sense of fatalism overtook a seemingly doomed Gondor — right before the […]

New Pro-Israel Group Launched In Australia
Mazal Tov to Australians For A Secure Israel (AFASI), which has just been launched in Sydney. I’m delighted to see that, in addition to a certain lady for whom my admiration is boundless, one of my favourite international affairs analysts, David Singer, is on the steering committee of this laudable new initiative.
To quote J-Wire (where further details and photographs of the inaugural occasion can be found):
‘In his opening speech, AFASI’s president Danny Ginges said:

Clueless Joe Biden ‘Reassures’ Jewish Voters: I Told Obama He’ll Release Pollard ‘Over My Dead Body’
Yesterday’s New York Times reported that President Barack Obama has dispatched Vice-President Joe Biden to reassure wavering Jewish voters about the administration’s foreign policy towards Israel.
During a meeting with rabbis in Florida, Biden was asked about commuting the sentence of Jonathan Pollard, who was convicted of spying for Israel in 1986, and who is serving a life sentence that many Jews feel is disproportionately harsh.
“President Obama was considering clemency, but I told him, ‘Over my dead body are we going to let him out before his time,’ ” Mr. Biden said. “If it were up to me, he would stay in jail for life.”
Whether you agree or disagree with Pollard’s punishment, Biden’s undiplomatic language was a colossal blunder, and suggests the following possibilities:
(Biden? That’s when you know they’re in trouble.)
