The first was an article by Professor Rafael Medoff, FDR Used The Jews. In it he gave an account of an earlier interview he conducted with the current Prime Minister of Israel’s father, Benzion Netanyahu, […]

Muslim School in Canada Under Investigation for Antisemitic Textbook
The Hate Crimes Unit of the Canadian Police is looking into allegations that a Muslim school is promoting antisemitism and violence to their young students, the National Post reports.A textbook used by the Madrassa, which was discovered online and reposted by the newspaper, call Jews “crafty” and “treacherous” and refers to “Jewish plots and treacheries.”
“Using religion to promote hatred among youth is not just offensive and abhorrent – it shows a stunning disregard for Canada’s basic values of decency and tolerance,” said David Spiro, the greater Toronto co-chair of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs.
“Canadians of all backgrounds would be outraged to learn that horrific conspiracy theories are included in this curriculum, including the blood libel that Jews plotted to kill Muhammad,” he added.
The materials have since been removed from the school website and Principal Masuma Jessa told reporters, “we are looking into it.”

Dear Class of 2012:
Allow me to be the first one not to congratulate you. Through exertions that—let’s be honest—were probably less than heroic, most of you have spent the last few years getting inflated grades in useless subjects in order to obtain a debased degree. Now you’re entering a lousy economy, courtesy of the very president whom you, as freshmen, voted for with such enthusiasm. Please spare us the self-pity about how tough it is to look for a job while living with your parents. They’re the ones who spent a fortune on your education only to get you back— return-to-sender, forwarding address unknown.
No doubt some of you have overcome real hardships or taken real degrees. A couple of years ago I hired a summer intern from West Point. She came to the office directly from weeks of field exercises in which she kept a bulletproof vest on at all times, even while sleeping. She writes brilliantly and is as self-effacing as she is accomplished. Now she’s in Afghanistan fighting the Taliban.
If you’re like that intern, please feel free to feel sorry for yourself. Just remember she doesn’t.
Unfortunately, dear graduates, chances are you’re nothing like her. And since you’re no longer children, at least officially, it’s time someone tells you the facts of life. The otherfacts.
Fact One is that, in our “knowledge-based” economy, knowledge counts. Yet here you are, probably the least knowledgeable graduating class in history.
A few months ago, I interviewed a young man with an astonishingly high GPA from an Ivy League university and aspirations to write about Middle East politics. We got on the subject of the Suez Crisis of 1956. He was vaguely familiar with it. But he didn’t know who was president of the United States in 1956. And he didn’t know who succeeded that president.
http://www.algemeiner.com/2012/05/07/the-stealth-legtimacy-of-j-street/ Did you know that J Street – which is, please, let’s acknowledge it already, a political lobbying organization – is launching a new national election year initiative? They have plans to train its supporters to lobby for the candidates they support, and ensure the defeat of candidates supported by “right-wing Republican” Jews in this […]

Mourdock Beating Lugar by Double Digits With Primary Days Away
Indiana has made the national news! We Hoosiers are so excited – it’s not everyday you see the word “Indiana” on Politico.com’s home page! Today’s reason for infamy? A new poll has just been released that puts tea-party challenger Richard Mourdock 10% ahead of incumbent Senator Dick Lugar as the May 8th Indiana GOP primary approaches.
This is big news, because many thought that the long-serving Lugar, who has been in office for 36+ years, had a decent chance to re-win his spot. It’s a bad day for any incumbent when he’s polling under 40% in his own party with a primary less than a week away. But Lugar has been mired in several residency scandals, including one in which he had to repay $14,000 to the US Treasury after abusing funds for his private hotel stays. Lugar has also been accused of shirking work to play golf, and received an F rating from the NRA for his “support” of gun rights.
WHAT IS THIS FLY FISHING? CATCH AND RELEASE…..RSK
WASHINGTON, May 7 (Reuters) – The United States has been secretly releasing detainees from a military prison in Afghanistan as part of negotiations with insurgent groups, the Washington Post reported in its Monday editions.The “strategic release” program has allowed American officials over the past several years to use prisoners as bargaining chips to reduce violence in restive provinces, it said, citing U.S. officials who it said spoke on condition of anonymity.
The freed detainees are often fighters who would not be released under the legal system for military prisoners in Afghanistan. They must promise to give up violence, the report said.
Officials would not say whether those who have been released have later returned to attack U.S. and Afghan troops, the Post said.
Releases have come amid efforts to end the war through negotiation, which is central to the Obama administration’s strategy for exiting Afghanistan, the report said.
Those efforts have yielded little to no progress in recent years. In part, they have been stymied by the unwillingness of the United States to release five prisoners from Guantanamo Bay – a gesture insurgent leaders have said they see as a precondition for peace talks, the report said.
There is a flurry of letters, columns and e-mails about Roosevelt and his decidedly shabby treatment of the Jews before and during the Holocaust. For the record, I don’t like much of what I know about Roosevelt…in fact, I think he was a closet Socialist. I also think that Dwight “Ike” Eisenhower was a lousy president who ended the Korean conflict too soon leaving a divided nation, issued ridiculous warnings about a “military industrail complex” and betrayed Israel, France and England during the Suez War in in 1956.
However,I have gotten off the anti-Roosevelt train. For all their flaws Roosevelt and Eisenhower and the great Russian army (read Andrew Robert’s magnificent book: The Storm of War”) won World War 2 and effectively ended the Holocaust. The rest is commentary.
I have far more loathing for those who have abandoned Israel and who remain blind and deaf to the present danger, namely resurgent Islam and Jihad. I also have great derision for those political recidivists and repeat offenders who will vote for Obama.
Mitt Romney is our only hope. Support him instead of dwelling on the past…..rsk
