Palestinians: Eight Million Refugees Must Return to Israel by Khaled Abu Toameh Many Palestinians said that Abbas was not authorized to make any concessions or speak on behalf of the refugees. “Our refugees will not accept any alternative to their right to return to their homeland and we do not care what Abbas’s position is.” — Ali Huwaidi, expert on Palestinian affairs. The reactions to Abbas’s […]

Soeren Kern: Muslims Demand “Right of Return” to Spain

Observers say that by granting citizenship to all descendants of expelled Muslims, Spain, virtually overnight, would end up with the largest Muslim population in the European Union.

“Is Spain aware of what might be assumed when it makes peace with some but not with others? Is Spain aware of what this decision [not to include Muslims in the return] could cost?… Does Spain have alternatives to the foreign investment from Muslims?” — Ahmed Bensalh, Morisco-Moroccan journalist.

“Persecution of Jews was just that, while what happened with the Arabs was part of a conflict. There is no basis for comparison.” — Jose Ribeiro e Castro, Portuguese lawmaker who drafted Portuguese law of return.

Muslim groups are demanding Spanish citizenship for potentially millions of descendants of Muslims who were expelled from Spain during the Middle Ages.

The growing clamor for “historical justice” comes after the recent approval of a law that would grant Spanish citizenship to descendants of Sephardic Jews expelled from Spain in 1492.

Muslim supporters say they are entitled to the same rights and privileges as Jews because both groups were expelled from Spain under similar historical circumstances.

ROBERT ZUBRIN: CUBA’S – CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY I just got back from a business trip to Mexico. While there, I met with some Mexicans who had recently traveled to Cuba. What they told me was shocking. The Cuban people are being held on the edge of starvation. According to my Mexican friends, ordinary Cubans are not allowed to eat beef. Instead, […]


Someone must communicate GOP ideas, and party leadership can’t be bothered.


Senator Ted Cruz is a hero in some Republican circles — and the opposite among many of his Senate Republican colleagues.

At this crucial juncture in the history of America, internal battles within the only party that can turn things around are the last thing Americans need. Moreover, each side in this political civil war has all too many valid criticisms of the other.

The Republican establishment’s criticisms of Senator Cruz are criticisms of his rule-or-ruin strategy, which can destroy whatever chance Republicans have of taking back the Senate in 2014 and the White House in 2016. And, without political power, there is no real hope of changing things in Washington.

Senator Cruz’s filibuster last year got the Republicans blamed for shutting down the government — and his threatened filibuster this year forced several Republican Senators to jeopardize their own reelection prospects by voting to impose cloture to prevent Cruz from repeating his self-serving grandstand play of last year. The Republicans need every vote they can get in the Senate — plus additional votes by defeating some Democrats who are running for the Senate this fall. It can be a very close call. Jeopardizing the reelection of current Republican senators is an act of utter irresponsibility, a high risk with zero benefits to anyone except Ted Cruz — and the Democrats.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON: The Outdated Business Model of Diversity, Inc.

In today’s divided society, universities would be wise to stress unity and academic rigor.

Diversity has become corporatized on American campuses, with scores of bureaucrats and administrators accentuating different pedigrees and ancestries. That’s odd, because diversity no longer means “variety” or “points of difference,” in the way it used to be defined.

Instead, diversity has become an industry synonymous with orthodoxy and intolerance, especially in its homogeneity of political thought.

When campuses sloganeer “celebrate diversity,” that does not mean they encourage all sorts of political views. If it did, faculties and student groups would better reflect the U.S.’s political realities and might fall roughly into two equal groups: liberal and conservative.

Do colleges routinely invite graduation speakers who are skeptical of man-made global warming, and have reservations about present abortion laws, gay marriage, or illegal immigration — if only for the sake of ensuring diverse views?

Nor does diversity mean consistently ensuring that institutions should reflect “what America looks like.”

If it did, all sorts of problems could follow. As we see in the NBA and NFL, for example, many of our institutions do not always reflect the proportional racial and ethnic makeup of America. Do we really want all institutions to weigh diversity rather than merit so that coveted spots reflect the race and gender percentages of American society?

Does anyone care that for decades the diverse state of California’s three most powerful elected officials have been most undiverse? Representative Nancy Pelosi, Senator Barbara Boxer, and Senator Dianne Feinstein are all mature women, quite liberal, very wealthy, married to rich professionals or entrepreneurs, and all once lived within commuting distance of each other in the Bay Area.

Is the University of California, Berkeley, ethnically diverse? If it were, Asian students might have to be turned away, given that the percentage of Asian students at UC Berkeley is about three times as great as the percentage of Asian residents in California’s general population.

Adam Edelman: Pakistani Merchants Use President Obama’s Face to Sell Imitation Viagra…. (???!!!)

Hard sell? Pakistani merchants use President Obama’s face to sell imitation Viagra

Black market versions of the anti-impotence drug featuring different caricatures of Obama — apparently a symbol of strength and virility — can be found across Pakistan.

While the Obama White House has spent billions of dollars in foreign aid trying to erect democratic institutions in the violence-plagued country, Pakistani men seeking a little “democracy” of their own can purchase four of the imitation blue pills for just $1.

The Lawless Presidency — on The Glazov Gang

This week’s Glazov Gang was joined by Ann-Marie Murrell, the National Director of, Tommi Trudeau, the Producer of Groovy Foods, and Nonie Darwish, the author of The Devil We Don’t Know.

The Gang gathered to discuss The Lawless Presidency. The dialogue occurred in Part II (starting at the 16:15 mark) and focused on when (if ever) Congress will hold Obama accountable for his usurpation of power. The discussion was preceded by a focus on A Day in the Life of Trying to Sign Up for ObamaCare, in which Tommi Trudeau shared his harrowing odyssey in the eerie world of the “Affordable Care Act.“

In Part I, the Gang discussed The Islamic Grinch Who Stole the Olympics, gauging why the Olympics strike at the heart of Islamic ideology — and why jihadists yearn to annihilate them. The segment also dealt with Jihad Migrating to Red States With Obama’s Blessings, analyzing why the president is easing immigration requirements for those linked to terror.

DANIEL GREENFIELD: THE PHANTOM ESTABLISHMENT OF THE JEWISH ANTI-ISRAEL LEFT Alan Alda’s wife signed a letter denouncing the newly elected left-wing mayor of New York for doing AIPAC’s bidding. The Sandinista supporter had been accused of many things, but being an Israeli stooge wasn’t one of them. Signing the letter, along with the spouse of that guy from MASH, were Martha Weinman Lear, the […]

Hilarious BBC bias on, wait for it, American versus British teeth!
Only the BBC could run something so hilariously lacking in awareness of their liberal left bias as this

If it wasn’t for the fact that this is from the BBC, you’d have to assume it was parody. They’ve just run a 950 word feature on British and American teeth, focusing on the legendary (but correct) observation that British teeth are commonly bent and dirty looking while American teeth tend to be straight and white.

They come up with all sorts of weird and wonderful arguments ranging from dental rip-offs in America producing unnatural looking results to the ludicrous notion that Brits have rotten teeth because they’re “more free-spirited, more radical”. Of course, the real reason never enters their minds.

MUSLIMS IN SPAIN: YOUR CASA, MI CASA- Al-Andalus Muslims demand Spain citizenship rights One of Bin Laden’s core demands was a “return” of Spain. In this tortured story from Spain, it appears that mainstream Muslim groups want the same thing Muslims of Spanish descent are up in arms about a decision by the Spanish government to grant citizenship to Jews expelled […]
