Iranian Cartoon of Doves Defecating on Bibi ” Shown by Swiss Amb to Iran Swiss Ambassador By: Lori Lowenthal Marcus

Guilio Haas is the Swiss Ambassador to Iran

Switzerland has been in a great hurry to get the other nations of the world to join it in treating Iran as if it is an upstanding member of the world community. The Swiss began lifting sanctions on Iran earlier this month.

In accordance with this position, Ambassador Haas revealed Switzerland’s true progressive nature at a meeting attended by hundreds of Swiss and Iranian businesspeople at a Zurich hotel on Thursday, Aug. 27.

Haas was encouraging the businesspeople to invest in Iran, referring to the world’s greatest sponsor of terrorism as a “pole of stability in the Middle East,” and that in his two years in Iran, while he has seen gray-haired men in turbans, “there aren’t a lot of them” and that Western perceptions of Iran as a belligerent nation was about to change as soon as sanctions are lifted. This is what the World Tribune reported about the event.

What the World Tribune did not report was that as part of his effort to encourage the businesspeople to invest in Iran, the Swiss Ambassador projected a cartoon on a huge screen. The cartoon was titled “Iran: now or never.”

ISIS Isn’t Winning So Much as America Is Mentally Defeated By Ben Weingarten

In an age of victimology, moral relativism and a supreme lack of confidence in Western Civilization, you get comments like this from senior military officials:

“In testimony on Capitol Hill this year, Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart, the [Defense Intelligence] agency’s director, said sending ground troops back into Iraq risked transforming the conflict into one between the West and ISIS, which would be ‘the best propaganda victory that we could give.’”

Lt. Gen. Stewart’s statement fittingly comes from the Times’ exposé on the alleged politicization of intelligence estimates regarding our nation’s supposed military campaign against ISIS in Iraq.

The half-hearted effort against ISIS as dictated by President Obama — more political than substantive in nature — is a symptom of which Stewart’s demoralized mindset is part of the cause.

We are in a war in which Islamic supremacists are and have been fighting infidels worldwide for multiple decades, while the infidels cower.

The Global Warmers Seek to Silence the Dissenters By Ben Weingarten

“The world must not belong to those who slander the prophets of Global Warming, Climate Change, or Climate Disruption.”So said Democratic U.S. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse in a fatwa issued in the Washington Post.

OK — perhaps that was not what he said verbatim, but it might as well have been.

Whitehouse intimated that racketeering charges be considered regarding Big Oil’s support of research challenging the supposed climate change consensus.

Without a hint of irony given the nature and activities of the climate change movement, Whitehouse compared the oil industry – which after the American people will be most harmed by regulations putatively relating to climate — to the RICO-violating tobacco business:

The Big Tobacco playbook looked something like this: (1) pay scientists to produce studies defending your product; (2) develop an intricate web of PR experts and front groups to spread doubt about the real science; (3) relentlessly attack your opponents.

In a point almost beyond parody, Whitehouse relies on a report by a Drexel University professor whose “environmental justice” work has been funded by federal grants worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. A nakedly partisan voice, the “Culture and Communication” department professor lists as areas of research and teaching “Critical Theory,” “Social Movements” and “Social Change,” to go along with the more relevant “Environmental Sociology.”

The professor writes that the “climate denial network”

span[s] a wide range of activities, including political lobbying, contributions to political candidates, and a large number of communication and media efforts that aim at undermining climate science.

None of these activities are illegal, or even unethical – though if Whitehouse gets his way the thought crime of challenging global warming may soon be.

Middle East Studies Profs Team with Iran Lobby to Push Deal by Cinnamon Stillwell

The National Iranian American Council (NIAC) has produced a letter promoting the Obama administration’s nuclear deal with Iran (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) signed by “73 prominent International Relations and Middle East scholars.” Among the latter are Richard Bulliet, John Esposito, Fawaz Gerges, Rashid Khalidi, Hamid Dabashi, William O. Beeman, Juan Cole, and Reza Aslan.

A recent Campus Watch article on Middle East studies academics toeing Teheran’s line in support of this deal includes the last four and clearly, they have company. The fact that NIAC is an Iran lobby group whose advisory board includes both Aslan and Cole demonstrates the willingness of these academics to further state-sponsored propaganda. It’s also proof of the Iranian regime’s ability—as with other Islamist lobbies—to infiltrate American university life. NIAC received funds from the Alavi Foundation (which funneled $345,000 to Harvard’s Center for Middle East Studies) until Alavi was closed for being a front-group for Tehran’s mullahs.

Watch How Anti-Israel Protest Leader Responds When We Ask Her if Hamas Is a Terrorist Organization….seenote please

To understand what drives these people read :Jews Against Themselves by Edward Alexander

The leader of an anti-Israel protest in New York City Wednesday contended that the United States government is “much worse” than Hamas when asked if she would characterize the group as a terrorist organization.

“Do you think of Hamas as a terrorist organization?” a reporter for TheBlaze asked protest leader Lana Povitz, who represents Jewish Voices for Peace.

“I think of the United States government as a terrorist organization,” she responded.

“What’s worse: Hamas or the United States government?” our reporter pressed.

“The United States government is much worse,” Povitz said.

Playing Politics With National Security

Playing Politics With National Security

Opponents of the Iran deal in Congress admit they can no longer kill the accord (see below). Their focus now is making sure there will be a vote on the agreement at all, and salvaging some political benefit from their well-funded bid to stop it. The politics of it all are explained below.

From our (NSR’s) perspective, opponents’ efforts have been laudable, but as is often the case, they were TOO LITTLE, TOO LATE.

As we’ve said numerous times on these pages, many of these efforts were for show. The Bipartisan Myth, the downgrading of Jews, the perfidy of establishment American Jewish organizations, the dismissal of Israeli Intel, the pressure, the Lies, Damned Lies & BO Lies, all these things, including Congress’ August recess as European businesses flocked to Iran, all these things ensured that whatever happened in Congress, the Iran deal would be a done deal.

Elliott Abrams: The Ally That Wasn’t

It was a political and historical anomaly for Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu to dispatch the historian Michael Oren to Washington D.C. to represent him and his country in 2009. Oren was not a member of Netanyahu’s Likud party; he had no political involvement inside Israel; he had no foreign-policy or diplomatic experience; and he was not an intimate of the prime minister’s.

In all these ways he differed from his predecessors. When Netanyahu first served as prime minister of Israel from 1996 to 1999, his ambassadors were Eliyahu Ben-Elissar and Zalman Shoval—both old hands of his Likud party and familiar diplomatic and political figures. Ben-Elissar had been chief of staff to Menachem Begin and then Israel’s ambassador to Egypt, and had chaired the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee of the Knesset. Shoval had been the country’s U.S. ambassador from 1990 to 1993. Later, Ariel Sharon sent his personal diplomatic adviser Daniel Ayalon to Washington; Sharon’s successor, Ehud Olmert, selected Sallai Meridor, a former chairman of the Jewish Agency and head of the World Zionist Organization. Today Netanyahu’s man in Washington is one of his closest advisers, Ron Dermer, who spent the first Obama term in an office 20 feet from Netanyahu’s.

Congressional Fight on Iran Deal Is All But Over By Eli Lake & Josh Rogin

Opponents of the Iran nuclear deal in Congress admit they can no longer kill the accord. Their focus now is making sure there will be a vote on the agreement at all, and salvaging some political benefit from their well-funded bid to stop it.

Lawmakers, Congressional staffers and lobbyists opposed to the deal reached in Vienna last month tell us they are now fighting to get more than 60 votes in the Senate for a resolution of disapproval to avoid a filibuster by Democrats supporting President Barack Obama. That is a far cry from the 67 votes in the Senate needed, along with two thirds of the House, to overturn an expected presidential veto of that resolution.

Yes, overturning an Obama veto was always a longshot. House Speaker John Boehner in April was privately warning Republicans that his party didn’t have the votes to stop the deal. Now Republican leaders are saying this out in the open.

Mass Immigration will Destroy Britain if We Don’t Act Now by Douglas Murray

IT IS now four years since David Cameron promised to reduce immigration into the UK from the hundreds of thousands to “tens of thousands” a year.

“No ifs, no buts”, was what the Prime Minister said. But the latest official figures, out yesterday, show he is nowhere near to fulfilling that promise.In fact in the last year immigration into our country reached record highs with net migration reaching a 10-year peak at 330,000 in the year up to March.

Thirteen per cent of people in this country now were born abroad.This is a colossal and significant blow to the Prime Minister.But it is also a reminder of a huge challenge to our nation’s sovereignty and way of life.
