The savage attack on worshippers at a Jerusalem synagogue this week demonstrated in the most horrible and graphic manner the futility of America’s obsession with ‘peace talks’ between Israel and the so-called ‘Palestinians’. Although it has been demonstrated countless times before, in terrorist attack after terrorist attack, every American administration in recent years has adopted the flawed policies of previous administrations, creating a moral equivalence between the terrorism of non-state actors and a nation’s right to self-defense. America has built its foreign policy around it.
What they don’t seem to get is this: there is no moral equivalence between the Palestinians and the Israelis.There can be no moral equivalence between non-state terrorists who murders civilians in violent terror attacks and a sovereign state with the responsibility to provide security to it citizens. In just the last fourteen years, 1,246 Israelis, most of them civilians (including the elderly, women, and children) were killed at the hands of Palestinian terrorists. These attacks have been brutal and unprovoked. They have ranged from random attacks on individual Israelis to a mass murder at a Passover Seder in 2002, in which a suicide bomber killed 28 Israelis and injured 140 more.
Israel’s response was massive then, as it should be now, and America should be standing shoulder to shoulder with Israel, fighting the scourge of Islamist terrorism that threatens both countries. Continue reading
Samuel Huntington predicted the growing cultural and religious conflicts that we are witnessing daily. His dubiousness regarding the ability of the West to understand those challenges and reluctance to meet them has been disturbingly accurate.
The failures of the West have brought about unprecedented expansion of “political Islam” both as a threat and an actuality.
All that the U.S. and the West have done to accommodate and buy-off its self-proclaimed Islamist enemies has only made them stronger. Instead of fighting the Islamists and their ideology, the U.S. and other Western nations have chosen to accept Islamists demands to modify their long held values, and eroding the freedoms of their own citizens. This submission to Islamist intimidation led to the prevalent ‘political correctness’ syndrome that further compromises our security. Continue reading
A continually morphing virus is an unknown, so any information that the government gives us today, may be dead wrong tomorrow. The contradictory statements coming out of the government agencies about ebola is both inappropriate and counter-productive. They are caught between a rock and a hard place because they don’t know exactly what they are dealing with. They don’t want to choose between telling the American people the truth and facing the possibility of causing a panic, so they lie. Too bad. All Americans lose. Continue reading
BREAKING STORY: August 29, 2014 4:10 pm EDT According to a confidential and highly reliable source, Commanding General of the 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, Major General Stephen M. Twitty, has been briefed today by the CIA, on a credible threat against the US by ISIS. Based on intelligence from chatter and other sources, an attack along our southern border by ISIS may be imminent. The nature of the attack may be a large truck bomb or the access may lead to another type of major event.
Further information revealed by Judicial Watch indicates that the attack may emanate from the border city of Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, across the border from El Paso, where terrorist groups, including ISIS, have been very active. This report flies in the face of Friday’s statement by White House spokesman Josh Earnest that “There is no evidence or indication right now that ISIL (ISIS) is actively plotting to attack the United States homeland.”
Editor’s Comment: We have been warning our readers for some time that ISIS has openly targeted America and already has agents here in the US. We do not have the luxury of adopting the White House’s laid back approach to this clear and present danger. We cannot wait until after a terrorist attack to wring our hands and say, “If only we had known!” We do know and the time to prepare is now. Another 9/12/2001 would be unforgivable. Mr. President, are you listening?
Senior level people in the Obama administration seem to think that ISIS is some kind of joke, a low level group with grandiose goals and little means of achieving them. So while ISIS has continued to shore up its power-base and train its terrorists for global warfare, the President completed his vacation and continues his round of fund-raisers. The President and his appointed advisers continue to demonstrate their ignorance and incompetence when confronted by real world terrorists who have, under their noses, evolved into savages at war with civilization. The urgency that is now required to address the real and present danger represented by ISIS to the United States seems to be low on the list of Obama’s priorities. Continue reading
America’s long history of incompetence in Middle Eastern affairs has never been more evident than it is today. John Kerry’s bungled efforts to achieve an historic ‘peace accord’ was doomed from the start, and ended in open warfare between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Like his predecessors, he failed to understand the basic dynamics that have created the volatile and dangerous situation that we now see in the Middle East. Before us is a clash of civilizations unlike any we have ever seen. Continue reading
Earlier this week, former Vice President Dick Cheney observed that relations between the United States and Israel, its most important Mideast ally have never been worse. Yesterday, the Wall Street Journal showed how bad they’ve become. Continue reading
