Farewell to Bush

As President Bush's term in office is approaching the end, America, Israel and indeed, the world are left facing a resurgent global Islamo-Nazism, Hamas strengthening its rule in the Palestinian territories, the real threat of a nuclear Iran while an inexperienced, naive new President in comes into the White House. To his detractors, Bush will forever be "the devil", no matter that he kept us secure for 7 years (following the 9/11 mass murder), he liberated 30 millions Iraqis from one of history's most despicable maniacs, he increased aid to Africa and committed funds in the fight against AIDS at unprecedented levels and that during his term, 10 millions new jobs have been created and black home ownership was the highest in history...His far left lunatic detractors will always hate the man because he ruled based on his faith and convictions and not based on polls (as his predecessor). But to Jews in general, and Israelis, in particular, Bush epitomized the perfect friend and ally.

When President Bush spoke before Israel’s Knesset on May 15, 2008- the day of the 60th Anniversary of Israel’s creation as a Jewish State-he gave an inspirational speech reflecting on what Israel meant to him, and what its existence means to the United States as a nation. One can say that it was certainly the most pro-Israel speech ever given by an American President.

George W. Bush’s commitment to Israel and his solidarity with the world’s Jews led me to reflect on the great irony that such a high percentage of American Jews are overwhelmingly Democrats, have blindly opposed the policies of the Bush administration and have foolishly followed on the far left road of hatred towards Bush personally...

Noam Neusner, a communications consultant, speechwriter and Jewish liaison for Bush (between 2002-2005) wrote in a recent Op-Ed that "President Bush was more Zionist than many Israelis, more mindful of Jewish history than many Jews." On December 15, President George W. Bush held the annual Hanukkah party at the White House. Although other Presidents have held Menorah lighting ceremonies, President Bush and his wife were the first to hold a party to celebrate the occasion. At the grandiose ceremony where more than 600 Jewish friends and guests were present, the Menorah was lit up by the grandsons of Harry Truman and David Ben Gurion. Fouad Ajami concludes that when President Bush leaves office, his "Diplomacy of Freedom" (responsible for liberating Afghanistan from the Taliban, Iraq from Saddam Hussein, Lebanon from the Syrian army and Qaddafi renouncing his quest for WMD) will be gone probably for ever. I have no doubt that History will judge Bush much more favorably that his present detractors, but until then, I say "Thank You, Mr. President!"

Hillary leaves the Senate for a post in the Obama Administration -Good Ridance!

In a clear way to settle some political debts, Hillary Clinton appears to be in line for a promotion.

New Yorkers should rejoice, because it means she will no longer be the steward of the Upstate New York economy.

When Hillary Clinton ran for Senate in 2000, she promised economic revitalization for New Yorkers living north of New York City and its suburbs. She even went so far as to promise 200,000 new jobs for the region. Gullible New Yorkers believed her and gave her a chance.
Eight years later, and Hillary Clinton still hasn’t created 200,000 jobs, because Hillary Clinton cannot create jobs. Neither can Big Government or Liberal bureaucrats.

In fact, Upstate New York has lost 20,000 private sector jobs while manufacturing jobs, once the life-blood of Upstate, have declined by 24%. Obviously, she did not fulfill her pledge to New Yorkers.

If anything, Senator Clinton’s failed promises are emblematic of today’s political culture. Not only do we tolerate falsehoods and failed promises, we expect them! Obama is not even the acting President and he is already working on his "exit strategy" out of the grandiose promises he made during the campaign. He is now alerting people that he “may not get there in one year or even in one term.”

Obama's charisma will no doubt, make it difficult to hold him accountable, and he will be able to continue sailing on the winds of "change" for quite a while before most Americans will wake up and understand that they have believing in a mirage.

As for Hillary, it is difficult to discern exactly what she has done since taking office, other than run for higher office, but it is clear she lacks the competence or the political will to energize the New York economy. New Yorkers should be pleased that Hillary will be kicked upstairs, especially not to any position relating to job creation or economic revitalization.

As far as the foreign leaders are concerned, that's another matter....

Anniversary for a Monster

Tuesday is the fourth anniversary of the death of Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) founder Yasser Arafat.

The central memorial ceremony for Arafat is being held in Ramallah, and smaller ones are scheduled in other towns and cities. In addition, a "minute of silence" is to be observed at noon throughout the Palestinian Authority in memory of "the fallen leader".

But who is the "leader" that most Palestinians glorify (while most people in the civilized world revile)?

Considered the founder of the modern-day terrorism used so widely by Muslims, Arafat began a wave of murder against Jewish and other targets around the world shortly after taking control of the PLO in 1968-9. Here's a short summary of this Monster's accomplishments:

* the Nahariya/Avivim school bus attack (May 1970). Palestinian terrorists crossed the border from Lebanon, ambushed the bus with a barrage of gunfire, murdered 12 children and 3 adults, and left several others crippled.

* the Lod Airport Massacre (May 1972), carried out by three Japanese Red Army terrorists in an operation planned and supported by PLO faction PFLP-GC, killing 26 and wounding 78.

* the Munich Olympics slaughter (September 1972), in which eleven Israeli athletes were killed.

* the Maalot massacre (May 1974) in which a school building was taken over while children from Tzfat on a school trip were sleeping there. Three teachers and 22 schoolchildren were murdered.

* the Savoy Hotel attack (March 1975) near Tel Aviv, in which seven hostages and two soldiers were killed after Fatah terrorists landed on the beach and seized the hotel.

* the Kiryat Shmonah apartment building attack (April 1974), in which Palestinian terrorists penetrated the northern Israel border town, entered an apartment building on Yehuda HaLevy St. and killed all 18 residents they found there, including 9 children.

* the Coastal Road bus hijacking (March 1978), in which 11 Fatah terrorists ,who infiltrated by sea, killed a photographer and a taxi driver and hijacked a bus filled with adults and many children. The terrorists fired on passing cars from the bus, and when they were finally stopped, they began firing missiles. The massacre left 35 people dead and 100 wounded.

* the brutal murder of three U.S. diplomats held hostage in Khartoum, Sudan (March 1973). The terrorists demanded the release of Sirhan Sirhan, the Palestinian assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. Arafat was recorded as having given the execution orders.

* the Achille Lauro hijacking of a cruise ship (October 1985), in which wheelchair-bound Leon Klinghoffer, 69, was shot and thrown overboard into the ocean.

* Internationally, in 1972 alone, PLO groups blew up a West German electricity plant, a Dutch gas plant and an oil refinery in Trieste, Italy. In 1975, the presence of Arafat and his 15,000-strong army in Lebanon triggered a bloody civil war that raged on for nearly two decades, costing 40,000 lives.

Arafat was banished from Jordan to Lebanon in 1970 in the course of a violent war against the PLO by King Hussein, and from Lebanon to Tunis in 1982 following the Peace for Galilee War. He orchestrated the first "intifada," beginning in 1987, from Tunis, though it had supposedly started spontaneously.

Hamas, which took over control of Gaza from the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in a violent coup in the summer of 2007, has announced that it will not allow public memorial ceremonies for Arafat. Last year, the Arafat memorial, attended by many tens of thousands, led to Fatah-Hamas violence and several deaths.

In the mean time, following the results of the US elections, Hamas is claiming close and ongoing ties with America's upcoming Obama Administration, according to a report published Tuesday in the Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat. The relationship was kept under wraps until after the U.S. elections so as not to harm Obama’s election prospects. The U.S. has classified Hamas a terrorist organization.

Ahmad Yousuf, advisor to Ismail Haniyeh, the head of the Hamas regime in Gaza, declared that Hamas has been in regular contact with President-elect Barack Obama’s advisers for months.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza," the Hamas official was quoted as saying, "but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as that may have had a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain."

After the U.S. elections, President-elect Obama has appointed Robert Malley as a senior foreign policy adviser. Malley, who served as an “informal adviser” to the Obama campaign, was reportedly forced to sever his ties with the campaign six months ago, when The Times of London reported that he was meeting with Hamas representatives on a regular basis.

Jesse Jackson's predicament of a change in US policy towards Israel in particular and the Middle East in general, is starting to take shape....A shape of another monster (?)

The World Loves Obama - With Friends like these....

A Palestinian Authority newspaper reported that Arab residents of Gaza are randomly calling Americans at home in hopes of persuading them to vote for Democratic candidate Senator Barack Obama in next month's US presidential election.

The article in Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, first noted and translated by Palestinian Media Watch, quotes a young man from the Hamas-controlled Gaza region as saying, "We dial random numbers and try to call people [in the United States] without knowing their identity or their affiliation...." He reportedly uses "Internet sites that allow making free calls... in order to use them for the campaign supporting Obama."

The Al-Hayat Al-Jadida article said, "Most of the Palestinians feel hatred towards USA, whose administrations have always stood by Israel...." The Gaza-based Obama campaigner, Ibrahim Abu Jayyab, "said that a large number of Palestinians dislike their activity..." Those PA residents "do not see any difference between the American politicians [Obama and Republican candidate Sen. John McCain] because of the hostility that they feel towards America," the report explained.

"But [Abu Jayyab's] hope is that their activity will have some impact [in support of Obama]," according to the newspaper report.

Abu Jayyab's freelance phone campaign for Obama in the last weeks of the American presidential race has not been the first time the Illinois senator has gotten such help. An Al-Jazeera TV report during the Democratic primaries featured Abu Jayyab as well, when he was busy organizing calls to American voters to persuade them to vote for Obama over then-candidate Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Other types of assistance have also been forthcoming from Gaza. In July of this year, Pamela Geller of the Atlas Shrugs blog revealed documents purporting to show that the Obama campaign received nearly $30,000 from two brothers living in Rafiah, in Hamas-controlled Gaza, during 2007.

Earlier, during an April 2008 interview with WABC radio and WorldNetDaily, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's Gaza-based political advisor Ahmed Yousef said, "Actually, we like Mr. Obama. We hope he will [win] the election and I do believe he is like John Kennedy, great man with great principle."

At the time, McCain commented, "I think it is very clear... why [Hamas] would not want me to be president of the United States, so if Senator Obama is favored by Hamas, I think people can make judgments accordingly."

Honesty hurts Obama

Outside of stump speeches, carefully scripted responses to reporters, and the endless recitation of talking points, there are a few moments when a politician, even a slick one, speaks from the heart. It is in these moments when true motivations and core beliefs are often revealed.
Such a moment occurred last week at the World Policy Forum in France, when Jesse Jackson said that "Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades" would lose some of their influence with Obama in the White House, and that "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would come to a close.

Embarrassed, the Obama campaign issued a statement saying that "Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. is not an adviser to the Obama campaign and is therefore in no position to interpret or share Barack Obama's views on Israel and foreign policy."

Jackson reportedly acknowledged that he was not an adviser to Obama, but rather a "supporter." But the words he used to describe their relationship suggest that he thinks he is much closer to Obama than the Obama campaign would like the public to believe. "We helped him start his career," Jackson says. "And then we were always there to help him move ahead."

John McCain's campaign also reacted to Jackson's comments on Tuesday, saying: "Literally, nobody knows what Barack Obama's policies would be if he were elected president, but it's very concerning that people believe he will not be a friend to Israel."

Jesse Jackson's honesty only confirms the Jewish community's long standing distrusts of Obama and his policies towards Israel and with good reason.

"Barack is determined to repair our relations with the world of Islam and Muslims," Jackson said. "Thanks to his background and ecumenical approach, he knows how Muslims feel while remaining committed to his own faith. Bush was so afraid of a snafu and of upsetting Israel that he gave the whole thing a miss. Barack will change that because, as long as the Palestinians haven't seen justice, the Middle East will 'remain a source of danger to us all.'"

Despite Obama's attempts to hide or minimize his pro-Palestinian sympathies and associations with known radical Palestinians, he has surrounded himself with advisers who hold virulent anti-Israel and even anti-Semitic views. No wonder that extremists from Hamas to Ahmadinejad openly hope for his success in November.

Jews heading to the polls this November remember this: What makes Hamas and Iran so comfortable with Obama in the White House?

The Audacity of Lies

Today, America and the entire free world, commemorate the victims of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001. A day that will live in infamy, when Arab terrorists hijacked 4 planes and crushed them into the Twin Towers (NYC), the Pentagon (Washington, DC) and on a land field in rural Pennsylvania, killing some 3,000 innocent people. This act of barbarism perpetrated against the US, the civilized world and the Judeo-Christian value system is viewed as the opening salve in the new World War, against the global Islamo-Nazism and their allies.

Seven years after the murders, Academics and the "man on the street" in the Arab world still blame the Jews and Israel for the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks that devastated the US and punctured the American image of being impossible to penetrate. Arab media have widely claimed that Arabs are the biggest victims of the attacks.

Excerpts from an article by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu:"

A New York Times man-on-the-street survey revealed disbelief that Arab terrorists were behind the attacks, and many still outright accuse Israel and the United States of planning the
aerial crashes that leveled the World Trade Center twin towers in New York City.

"Look, I don’t believe what your governments and press say. It just cannot be true," The Times
quoted Ahmed Issab, a Syrian engineer who lives and works in the United Arab Emirates. "I think the US organized this so that they had an excuse to invade Iraq for the oil".

Pakistani native Mohammed Jamil, writing in the Pakistan Observer justified the terrorists' motives, citing American-Israeli collusion.
"There is a widespread perception that the U.S. leadership used 9/11 events to implement its program of controlling the world resource," he wrote. …. On examining the initial statements of Osama bin Laden one could infer that Al Qaeda had twin objectives vis-a-vis the liberation of Palestine and exit of US forces from Saudi Arabia. "Even the date Al Qaeda terrorists chose for their attack showed their true motivation, as September 11 is the anniversary of the League of Nations’ proclaiming in Palestine the British Mandate in 1922. The date represents the first physical step toward the implementation of the Balfour Declaration and establishment of Israel. This fact was never revealed because the world media is under the control of Jews… It was a calculated lie to divert the Americans from associating the disaster with the United States support for Israel."

Jamil added that "any country that bombs another country creates millions of angry enemies against it."

The Times street survey also showed that Arabs blame American foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks. "Maybe people who executed the operation were Arabs, but the brains? No way,” said
Mohammed Ibrahim, a clothing-store owner Cairo told the newspaper. "It was organized by other people, the United States or the Israelis."

Many Arabs still spread the rumor that Jews did not go to work at the World Trade Center the morning of the attack, although there were indeed many Jews who died in the resulting blaze and collapse of the skyscraper.

Another Egyptian claimed that the real reason Americans have not captured Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden is that he was not behind the attacks. "What happened in Iraq confirms that it has nothing to do with bin Laden or Qaeda. They went against Arabs and against Islam to serve
Israel, that’s why," he claimed.

Dr. Ahmad Mustafa wrote in that Arabs are the real victims of 9/11. He said the attacks have intensified a negative image of Muslims, which has reinforced violence.

Dr. Azzam Tamimi, director of the London-based Institute of Islamic Political Thought stated, "9/11 has become the biggest blackmail in modern history after the Holocaust. Zionists continue to blackmail Europeans because of the Holocaust while the Americans now blackmail the Arabs and the Muslims because of what happened on 11 September 2001."


Some may object to the term "Islamo-Nazism" and the word does not appear in the dictionaries yet, but a close examination of the two (radical Islam and Nazism), and a critical look at the ways and means by which the Nazis used propaganda, media and the masses to further their goals, point to more similarities than differences.

World War II started when Nazi Germany invaded Poland, under the cover of responding to Polish aggression and even staged a military strike by supposedly Polish soldiers against "peaceful" German border guards. Today, the Arab media is cultivating the same "innocence" of the aggressor. It only depends on us, the sane majority, to get informed and reject this cynical distortion of the truth.

Palin's a Tough, Smart Conservative Woman: Deal With It!

Liberals excel in blinding themselves to their own biases and hypocrisy and blaming conservatives for their own sins, all of which they are showcasing in their frantic reaction to the Sarah Palin nomination.

Not only are they trying to destroy Palin. They are straight-facedly denying it and accusing Republicans of manufacturing this charge to exhibit phony sympathy for women.

Conservatives, after all, couldn't possibly be supportive of female Palin based on merit; it's just a political ploy to purloin Hillary voters. Liberal captives of identity politics just can't comprehend that neither gender nor race matters to conservatives. It's all about the candidate's political philosophy, approach to governance and qualifications to serve -- not those artificial constructs that liberals have exploited through the years.

Don't get me wrong. Palin's beauty and tough-as-nails femininity are refreshing icing on a delicious cake for conservatives, but if she were not demonstrably conservative, they'd be depressed -- not energized.

But you'll never convince the liberal press, which sees everything through the lens of gender and race consciousness and indiscriminately projects that propensity onto conservatives.

Thus, Newsweek's Anna Quindlen is reduced to grousing about the "hypocrisy" of conservatives in honoring the Palins for bringing a baby with Down syndrome to term rather than scolding them with "pursed-lip accusations of promiscuity."

Conservatives, said Quindlen, have "inveighed against affirmative action" yet celebrate the affirmative action that "undoubtedly played a part in" the Palin selection. And how can conservatives credibly complain about personal attacks against Palin, when "the wingnuts of their own party elevated such attacks to a fine art by accusing Hillary Clinton of fictitious misdeeds from treason to murder"?

Like many liberals, poor Anna can't seem to distinguish between hating the sin and hating the sinner. Nor does she grasp the difference between government-mandated race- or gender-based preferences and the private selection of individuals for public service who happen to be in "minority" categories. She is also confused on the distinction between dozens of legitimate charges against the Clintons and the trumped-up slanders against Sarah Palin. When you've caught Bill Clinton red-handed in multiple felonies and Hillary in gross improprieties on which she got a complete media pass -- such as the cattle futures and missing law firm billing records -- who needs the more sensational allegations of treason and murder?

But despite her best efforts, Quindlen's obtuseness doesn't hold a candle to that of MSNBC's Chris Matthews. On "Hardball," Matthews derisively mocked Pat Buchanan for defending Palin against media attacks, accusing him of "a 1950s version of chivalry," false "sensitivity," "political cross-dressing" and assuming the role of Dr. Phil.

Revealing the narrowly calibrated liberal mind, Matthews wrongly assumes that conservatives are cynically playing the gender card in defending Palin and, in the process, demeaning women and hurting their cause. "This courtesy that you expect people to show her is debasing her potential as a leader of this country."

Nice try, Chris. But conservatives are defending Palin not out of chivalry, but against false charges. Our invocation of gender is solely to point out liberal hypocrisy for engaging in the sexism they pretend to decry. For example, consider their condemnation of Palin as an unfit mother for working a demanding job while having young children at home.

Matthews, saying Palin is ducking press scrutiny, started a bogus altercation with Buchanan over the public's "right" to have candidates submit to "tough questions" from an "objective" journalist.

Matthews needs shock treatments if he thinks the liberal media are objective. (...) Even his own bosses dumped him as convention anchor because of his overt bias. Indeed, a Rasmussen poll indicates that 51 percent believe the press is trying to hurt Palin.

(...) Liberals are accusing Palin of avoiding the media to create the impression she has a reason to hide from them. She was just nominated, for crying out loud. Take a breath. She has already agreed to an interview with ABC's Charlie Gibson, and there will be plenty more.

But while we're on this subject, have the media talked about Obama's incompetence without a teleprompter or his flip-flop on agreeing to unscripted town hall meetings with McCain? Have "objective" journalists asked Joe Biden about his plagiarism or his autocratic plan to divide Iraq into three separate nations whether Iraqis like it or not? (...)

The more liberals mistreat Palin and act like transparent 2-year-olds in projecting onto conservatives their own patronizing proclivities the more their true colors will be apparent. So please keep it up.

Sex, Lies and Videotapes - The Far Left is afraid

Since she emerged on the national stage as John McCain’s vice presidential pick one week ago, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has been subjected to an intense amount of media and public scrutiny. But while public scrutiny is legitimate, most of the shameless attacks and smears thrown at her, are not. The moment America got a glimpse at the "hockey mom" from Alaska, the far left smear machine started to work. Many of the attacks have come in the form of unconfirmed reports on the Internet. Among them:

1) Palin “Joined a Secessionist Political Party”

The Charge: Unsubstantiated Internet reports insisted Palin was once a member of the Alaska Independence Party, which critics call a secessionist political movement and supporters say is dedicated to seeking greater state control over federal lands across Alaska.

The Facts: Palin has been a registered Republican since 1982. There is no record of her ever being a member of the AIP, or any party but the GOP. Palin’s huband has been a member of the AIP in the past, but since 2002 has been a registered independent.

2) Palin Supported a “Nazi Sympathizer”

The Charge: “Palin was a supporter of Pat Buchanan, a right-winger or, as some Jews call him: a Nazi sympathizer,” Obama Florida spokesman Mark Bubriski was quoted as saying in a Miami Herald article.

The Facts: While mayor of Wasilla, Palin wore a Buchanan button during the sometimes presidential candidate’s 1999 visit. But Palin actually supported Steve Forbes in 2000, and served as a co-chair on his Alaska campaign.
In the weeks after the 1999 report of her wearing the Buchanan button, Palin said: “When presidential candidates visit our community, I am always happy to meet them. I’ll even put on their button when handed one as a polite gesture of respect. … The article may have left
your readers with the perception that I am endorsing this candidate, as opposed to welcoming his visit to Wasilla.”In fact, the Alaska Jewish leadership had only praise for her commitment to the US-Israel relationship and her dealings with the community.

3) Palin “Wants Creationism Taught in School”

The Charge: Palin opposes the teaching of evolution, and would mandate the teaching of creationism in the state’s public schools.

The Facts: Palin said during her 2006 gubernatorial campaign that she would not push the state Board of Education to add creation-based alternatives to the state’s required curriculum, or look for creationism advocates when she appointed board members. She has kept this pledge, according to the Associated Press. Palin has spoken in favor of classroom discussions of creationism, in some cases. “I don’t think there should be a prohibition against debate if it comes up in class. It doesn’t have to be part of the curriculum,” Palin told the Anchorage Daily News in a 2006 interview.

4) Palin “Was Nearly Recalled” While Mayor

The Charge:: Palin was so controversial as mayor of Wasilla that she was almost recalled by a popular voter movement.

The Facts: The Wasilla City Council considered but never took up a recall motion after she fired a longtime police chief, who subsequently brought a lawsuit. A citizen’s group dropped their recall bid, and a judge ruled Palin had the authority to fire the chief.

5) Palin “Opposes Sex Education”

The Charge: Palin opponents say Palin supported the end of all sex education in public schools. In light of her daughter’s presumably unplanned teen pregnancy, this has been a particularly well discussed internet topic.

The Facts: “The explicit sex-ed programs will not find my support,” Palin wrote in a 2006 questionnaire distributed among gubernatorial candidates. Palin favors abstinence-based sex education programs.

6) “This Picture Proves Palin is …”

The Charge: A slew of fake, Photoshopped or misdated photographs on the internet purport to show Palin in any number of embarrassing or compromising poses. One photo claimed to show Palin standing poolside, wearing an American flag-themed bikini, toting a rifle with telescopic sight.

The Facts: The various photos are being discredited and shown to be fake on a number of websites. The original of the so-called bikini shot, probably the best-known of the pictures, was shown to have been taken of another woman, with Palin’s head Photoshopped above the body.

7) Palin is the grandmother, and not the mother, of Trig Palin

The Charge: The most salacious rumor of all, this theory holds that Palin did not give birth to her son Trig in April, and was actually covering up for her daughter, Bristol.

The Facts: There are a number of photographs showing an apparently pregnant Sarah Palin, as well as a number of published eyewitness accounts of her pregnancy. These include First Lady Laura Bush, who says she spoke with a pregnant Palin at a governor’s conference in February. An assignment manager for KTVA news in Anchorage, Cherie Shirey, has also been quoted saying: “We worked with Governor Palin many times in 2008. Our reporters worked her on location and in the studio and I worked with her myself. She was definitely pregnant. You could see it in her belly and her face. The whole idea that Sarah Palin wasn’t pregnant with Trig is completely, absolutely absurd.”
The McCain campaign, in an apparent effort to counteract the rumors, announced last weekend that Bristol Palin is five months pregnant, which indicated she would have become pregnant
before Trig was born.

Why, you may ask, do we need to spend time and energy on fighting this garbage instead of concentrating on real and important issues like - Iran and the global Islamo-Nazi Jihad against the West, drilling for energy, cutting and keeping taxes low, shrinking the size of the Government, etc.?
The answer is simple - lies must be dealt with immediately, otherwise Goebels would have been proven right ("If you tell a lie enough times, eventually, people will end up believing it").
But what these smears prove is that the Democrats and their far left minions are shaking in their boots. Sarah Palin is a classy lady. She is articulate, pleasant, strong willed and determined to fight for her believes. That spells trouble for the liberals, whose icon, in this election, is a guy with a thin resume and questionable background and associations and an angry woman who publicly admited that she has not been proud of her country (until now, that is) and she thinks that America is "a downright mean country in 2008".

The DNC - Democratic National Circus

As the DNC Convention is approaching its apogee tonight, with Obama's acceptance speech delivered in front of a full stadium, many see a missed opportunity in a convention which offered no coherent message to America and a whole lot of circus-like show.
After all the show that they put up, Democrats are still having a hard time to figure how it was that John McCain had inched further up in the polls during this, of all things, the week
of the Democratic National Convention in Denver. But the only real mystery is why they were so mystified.
Out of touch with middle America, the Democrats opened their Convention with a salute to the party's ultra liberal wing. First came Ted Kennedy, the Democratic icon from Massachussetts, who simbolizes to so many voters the very definition of a "limousine liberal".
Next came Michelle Obama. For all the hype surrounding her appearance, all she needed to do was to look smart and project the impression that she and her husband are not the elitist, angry black radicals that they were perceived by so many Americans.
She largely succeeded, yet her appearance came across as overly staged, and kept alive
lingering doubts among some voters as to her true feelings towards those who don't follow the liberal orthodoxy as her.
After Michelle Obama, Dennis Kucinich put up a show rivaling circus clowns and Brian Schweitzer's appearance wasn't far off.
The tension built up as Hillary Clinton took the stage. She delivered a speech which many characterized as a good way to position herself for a possible run in 2012 (if McCain wins this year) and mentioned Obama's name 3 or 4 times. After Bill Clinton's appearance, it became clear that Joe Biden notwithstanding, he has a third running mate, whether he likes it or not.
Joe Biden closed the show on Wednesday, after launching in a tirade of hypocrisy questioning his "good friend's" judgement on a number of issues, conveniently leaving aside the successful surge in Iraq.
Watching the pathetic show put on by the Democrats, one cannot but recognize the hypocrisy and double talk going on. Hillary Clinton, still bruised by a nasty and lenghty battle in the primaries, made it clear on more than one occasion how she feels about Obama's inexperience and lack of judgement versus McCain, yet on the podium, she was all praises. Bill Clinton, who complained publicly that the Obama campaign "has played the race card against" him and that "they have played it from the bottom of the deck", wanted us to believe him that Obama is fit to be President. How utterly Clintonesque of him....And Joe Biden, whose comments regarding Obama's lack of experience and his praises of John McCain are now part of campaign ads, tried to make up something off of a thin resume which he would like to sell to the American people as "Commander in Chief".
Instead of this despicable show of lies, the Democrats should have been reassuring moderate
voters that they will be safe this November if they abandon their recent past habit of voting for the Republicans and passing on liberal solutions.

The Social Security Quiz

Regardless of one's party affiliation or political believes, the subject of Social Security seems to affect all of us and the Democrats have been successful in creating an image that presents them as the guardians of this program and the Republicans as the "bad guys".

Their Hollywood techniques notwithstanding, the Democrats are betting on your ignorance of history. But facts are facts and they don't support the Democrats.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (FICA) Program. He promised:
1) That participation in the Program would be completely voluntary
2) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the Program
3) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program would be deductible for
income for tax purposes each year
4) That the money the participants put into the independent "Trust Fund" rather than into
the general operating fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security retirement Program, and nothing else
5) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Since many of the retirees who have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social
Security check every month and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money
we paid to the Federal government to "put away", lets try this quick quiz:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent "Trust Fund" and put it into
the general fund so that Congress could spend it?
A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled House and Senate.
Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA)?
A: The Democratic Party.
Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?
A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the "tie-breaking" deciding vote while he was Vice President
Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?
A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party.

And after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats have the hutzpah to turn around and tell us that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away! The worst part about
it is that uninformed citizens believe their stories! What do you think Barack Obama will do to your finances if he gets elected?

The best way to combat their rhetoric is to arm yourself with facts and never take for granted the images that the Democrats and their Hollywood friends doctor for you.

To Bomb or Not to Bomb

This seems to be the key question as Iran has rejected yet another overture from the West, Russia and China. It is obvious by now to all fair minded people that the Islamo-Nazi regime in Tehran is playing games and stall tactics in order to gain time. Deluded lefties prefer to close their eyes (and minds) and call this "Iran's efforts to resolve the crisis by diplomatic means".

As the perception that Washington now prefers diplomacy over confrontation with Tehran sinks in, Israel's options are shrinking. Israel has purchased 90 F-16I fighter jets and will receive 11 more by the end of 2009. These jets are capable to operate in Iran. Israel has also bought 2 more Dolphin submarines - in addition to the 3 it already has - capable of firing nuclear-armed warheads.

The foreign media also likes to speculate that Israel already has intelligence cells actively operating inside Iran (no such reports have been confirmed).

Israel estimates that the mad regime in Tehran can have enough enriched uranium for a nuclear bomb by next year, which prompted Shaul Mofaz (Israeli Deputy Prime Minister and possibly next Prime Minister) to say last week that "if Israeli, U.S., or European intelligence gets proof that Iran has succeeded in developing nuclear weapons technology, then Israel will respond in a manner reflecting the existential threat posed by such a weapon".

A nuclear armed Iran is a threat for the entire civilized world, whether this world realizes it or not. However, for Israel, it would be an existential threat. Israel does not have the "luxury" to ignore such a threat, live with it or dismiss it (like Obama, who said that Iran does not pose a danger because it is a "small country").

Iran, of course, maintains that its uranium enrichment plan is meant for "electricity generation" only, but apart from the "anti-war" lunatics and those who'd actually like to see a terrorist nation posses the Dooms Day Weapon, no one in his right mind can believe that.

Since Fuhrer Ahmadinejad is not going to stop, the question is what to do: To Bomb or Not to Bomb?

After destroing the Iraqi reactor and more recently, the Syrian one, Israel has sent a clear message that it will not tolerate its sworn enemies getting nuclear capabilities and is willing to use force preemptively against any target.

"For Israel, Iran is not a target that cannot be achieved," said Maj. Gen. Aharon Zeevi-Farkash,
former head of Israel's army intelligence.
However, Israel will most likely seek and need the US approval for such a move.

Bush administration officials last week assured visiting Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak that the U.S. has not ruled out the possibility of a military strike on Iran.
And the U.S., aware of Israel's high anxiety over Iran's nukes, is also hooking Israel up to an advanced missile detection system known as X-Band to guard against any future attack by Iran.

If Israel attacks, it will face the Russian-made Tor-M1 surface-to-air missiles purchased by Iran only last year.

Military experts say an Israeli strike would require manned aircraft to bombard multiple
targets and heavy precision bombs that can blast through underground bunkers. It is widely assumed that Israel posses bunker buster bombs.

Elite ground troops could also be necessary to penetrate the most difficult sites, though Israeli military planners say they see that option as perhaps too risky.

US has far more superior capabilities to strike at Iran's nuclear facilities. The United States has cruise missiles that can deliver high-explosive bombs to precise locations and B-2 bombers capable of dropping 85 500-pound bombs in a single run.

Besides the "how" and "when", the aftermath of such an attack is also a big question mark.

Iran could halt oil production and shut down tanker traffic in the strategic Strait of Hormuz, which could send the price of crude skyrocketing and wreck Western economies.

It could stir up trouble for the U.S. in Iraq and activate its militant proxies in both Lebanon and the Gaza Strip, from where Israel could come under heavy rocket attack. It could also strike Israel with its arsenal of Shahab-3 long-range missiles — something Israel is hoping to guard against through its Arrow missile defense system.

Whether an attack on Iran would be worth its cost would depend on how long the nuclear program could be delayed, said Chuck Freilich, a former Israeli deputy national security
adviser and now a senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School.

"For a five to 10-year delay I would say yes," he said.

Obama's dirty tricks

Hailed by some (especially in the drive-by media) as the "new hope", "the beacon of change", "beyond race", etc., Obama looks like he actually believes his own delusions. Increasingly, his demeanor and actions are further and further away from the "grass roots" level from where he's supposedly started and more and more like the presumptuous, arrogant elitist that he actually is.Glimpses of his (real) character have popped out sporadically during the Democratic primaries when he spoke against Americans that are bitter and cling to their guns and bible. It continued with displaying a campaign logo which looked very much alike the Presidential logo and peaked during his tour abroad, where he was acting so much as the sitting President, that one reporter even exclaimed "but he's NOT the President!".

Now he calls himself the embodiment of America's hope and his far-left cohorts are already busy laying the ground to the ridiculous statement that if he's not elected President, it'll be because of enduring racism in the American society. In other words, if you don't vote for this empty suit, you're probably a racist.
The New York Times (a paper dedicated to the election of Hussein Obama as President) run an article that was questioning why is Obama still not doing better in the polls, even after 200,000 Germans hailed him as the American Fuhrer. Many of the comments blamed American "racism", proof to the fact that and the rest of the Obama Jugend storm troops are hard at work trying to distort the truth.

The latest Obamination is his claim that the Republicans are going to play on the racial fears of every day Americans. Obama said: “You know, ‘he’s not patriotic enough, he’s got a funny
name,’ you know, ‘he doesn’t look like all those other presidents on the dollar bills.”‘

McCain campaign manager Rick Davis issued a statement saying that Obama “played the race card, and he played it from the bottom of the deck” when he told voters Wednesday that McCain will try to scare them into rejecting him.
Does anyone remember that those were almost the same words uttered by Slick Willy (that's Bill Clinton, for those of you who still think that the skunk was a good President) during Hillary's failed attempt to gain the nomination?

Davis called Obama’s remarks “divisive, negative, shameful and wrong.”

Obama's remarks are more than that. They are a blatant attempt to inject race and racism (namely his racism) into a race which he fears that he will lose. After all his bombastic speeches for "togetherness", "change", "beyond race", etc. he's nothing but a petty politician, trying to use the scare tactics from the book of Rev. Wright and Jesse Jackson. He's so drunk with his own image that he doesn't realize that this will backfire and when the moment of truth will come, more and more non-blacks will send him the message he deserves on November 4th.
Oh, and some one should remind him that inflating our tires does NOT amount to a real energy policy.....Stupid is as stupid does...

Obama visits Israel

After following the lead of John McCain, Obama decided to actually visit some of the places he talks about while in Washington or on the campaign trail. His much publicized trip to the Middle East is not a fact finding mission (as his entourage would like you to believe) but a confirmation of his long-held beliefs, combined with a media tour and photo ops.

The fact that 3 major network personalities are accompanying him on this tour while none cared to join John McCain on his (many) previous tours to the Middle East, should come as no surprise by now. The main media has clearly abandoned what little of their integrity they still had and are in the tank for Obama all the way. One of the most shameless, The New York Times, refused to publish an op-ed by McCain in response to one of Obama's published a week before.

So what are we to take from Obama's fact-confirming-believes tour?

First and fore most that he lacks no chutzpah. Although he hasn't been elected President and while in his short time in the Senate, has accomplished close to nothing, Hussein is acting "presidential", talking as if he's been in the White House for years. And the media is only too happy to perpetrate this farce.
When asked about his meetings, Obama Hussein answered that "these are leaders with which I will work for the next 10 years"(!!!) Maybe someone should remind him that first and foremost, he is just the Junior Senator from Illinois, that he is NOT the President and even if he was to get elected....twice....he'd still not be in the White House for 10 years! Oh, and while they're at it, they should also remind him that the US is composed of 50 (that's fifty!) states and not 57.

Second, Obama would like people to forget that he was a staunch opponent to the surge of troops in Iraq, which is widely credited for stabilizing the country and dramatically reducing the number of our casualties, the number of Iraqi casualties and the virtual defeat of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. How? By diverting the attention to Afghanistan where he intends to take political advantage of a recent surge in Taliban activities.

Third, Obama understands that perception is 90% of reality and takes fool advantage of the media. His photo ops with Maliki, Karzai and Peres are meant to account for his thin resume and even thinner foreign policy experience.

Playing to his far left anti-war base, Obama cannot steer too far to the center without alienating those loons. He may talk tough on Iraq and Afghanistan but in fact his planned withdrawal from Iraq is just dust in the eyes of the far left. He intends to move the same troops to Afghanistan before making sure that the job in Iraq has been completed.
He may sound as if Israel's security is important to him, but when in talking to Arab leaders he belittles the same Israeli concerns and tries to draw a moral parallel between Israel's self defense and the Palestinian homicide attacks. He is a hypocrite and all of the ABC, NBC and CBS in the world cannot paint him otherwise. Consider this: when McCain visited Israel, he was accompanied by Joe Liberman, a staunch supporter of Israel. Obama is accompanied by Chuck Hagel, one of the most anti-Israel politicians, the guy who refused to sign a petition branding Hizballah as a terrorist organization. Obama can visit Sderot and Yad Vashem as many times as he wants. His true character he will never be able to hide and people should not be fooled by the images fabricated by ABC, NBC or CBS.

Who is Samir Kuntar?

True to its tradition of not leaving any soldier behind (dead or alive), Israel has agreed to yet another deal with its Arab enemies: to release 5 murderers and the remains of 199 killed terrorists in return for the bodies of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev, the 2 soldiers kidnapped by Hezbollah 2 years ago (and presumed dead).
On the other side of the border, in Lebanon, lavish celebrations are planned and even Nasrallah, Hezbollah's chief will appear in public (from his secret bunker) on a giant screen. The main "attraction" is the monster Samir Kuntar, celebrated as a returning hero. But who is SamirKuntar?

These are the monsters that Israel is fighting for the past 60 years. People who cherish death above life and cold blooded murder as "heroism". I believe that President Peres was right when he said that one day Lebanon will look back and be ashamed. For now, the murderers are celebrating.

Another Obamination

Hounded by charges of flip flop, Barack Hussein Obama finally laid to rest the statement he made at the AIPAC Convention in June, about the need for Jerusalem to remain Israel's undivided capital. Blaming "poor phrasing" and careless syntax, the Obaminator said in an interview with Fareed Zakaria: "You know, the truth is that this was an example where we had some poor phrasing in the speech. And we immediately tried to correct the interpretation that was given."

Unlike others who castigated Obama for his supposed flip flops on issues, I never had any illusions about the man. After all his little speeches, oratory concerts and grandiose shows, he's just a politician trying to lie his way around. Unfortunately, there are still many Jews too deluded or too biased to see through his disguise. Obama is not a friend of Israel. He never was and he never will. 20 years in the company of haters, racists and Palestinian activists shape a man in a way that is not easily changed.

Trying to define himself as being everything to everyone, Obama finds himself at odds with his base (far left "blame America" lunatics), with women (who felt cheated by the Hillary defeat), with Jews (which increasingly are tilting towards McCain) and even with some blacks, for whom is not black enough (the Jesse Jackson episode). Out of this environment appeared the "New Yorker" cartoon, which depicts Obama in Muslim garb and headdress, giving a fist-bumping
handshake to his wife Michelle who is dressed in camouflage clothes with an AK-47 and ammo-belt slung over her shoulder. They are shown standing in the presidential Oval Office beneath a portrait of Osama bin Laden while the American flag burns in the fireplace. Obama's campaign said that while the intention may have been satirical, "most readers will see it as tasteless and offensive."

Although it wasn't the magazine's intention, the cartoon lampoons the Obamas based on their actions and words and I guess that "if it walks like a duck and it quacks like a duck"....

Obama Family Album

He speaks about his heritage and his family but no photos have been publicized. His campaign wants "more white people" in the background photos and rejected 2 head-scarfed Muslim women from appearing behind him. Why? If Obama is so proud of his heritage, family and upbringing, why all the "doctored" image? Unless he wants to appear something that he's not....

With Luo Raila Odinga (Kenya opposition leader). Odinga has signed a "Shariah Pact" with the country's Muslims. Claims to be Barack's cousin and his eldest son is named Fidel (as in Fidel Castro).

Barack's father, Muslim, hard-drinker, was married three times, attended Harvard and returned to Kenya . Obama claims he was an atheist but he was raised Muslim and was given a Muslim burial at Barack's family's request.

Barack stands behind Kezia (stepmother) in a Kenyan family shot. Brother Abongo ' Roy ' Obama who is a Luo activist and a Militant Muslim argues that the black man must 'liberate himself from the poisoning influences of European culture.'

Quite a family, isn't it? Why be ashamed of it? Why try to hide it? Why attempt to fool the American people into thinking that you are something else ("change", "uniter", etc.). Barack Hussein Obama, you should let the American people see you for who you REALLY are....or are you afraid of that?

Obama: Jews Beware!

Behind all the hype and empty slogans, no one really knows where Barack Hussein Obama stands on many of the critical issues facing the country and the world today.

The mainstream dishonest media is not interested in asking the questions perhaps because they are so invested in his success and definitely because they are afraid of what they might unearth.

Last polls show Obama getting about 61% of the Jewish vote. But this actually points to his problem with the Jewish community. John Kerry got about 75% of the Jewish vote. Since George W. Bush became President, the Jewish vote for the Republican Party doubled and the polls show John McCain receiving 31% and thus continuing the inroads made be the GOP among American Jews.

Why is Obama having problems with the Jews who have historically been in the pocket of the Democratic Party, so much so that in their political blindness, many still refuse to wise up and see the truth?

The reasons are multiple and they range from Obama's associations, his past and his obvious inexperience and lack of understanding of the Middle East in general and the Israeli-Arab conflict in particular.

During his lip-service speech to AIPAC, Obama said: "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel, and it must remain undivided." Twenty-four hours later, following protests from Palestinian and Hamas government officials, Obama reversed his statement telling CNN: "Obviously, it's going to be up to the parties to negotiate a range of these issues. And Jerusalem will be a part of these negotiations." So much for standing up for one's believes.....Unless...those were not really his believes, but a simple lie told to those eager to swallow up anything he has to say at the moment.

Obama does not have the experience to run as a CEO of company (most will ask for at least 7 years experience; all he has to show is 3 years in the Senate) much less to be the leader of the Free World and to run the Greatest Country on Earth (the USA). But he is the classical politician: liar, willing to associate with unsavory characters in order to build a political base and then, if need be, throw them under the bus for the sake of political expediency.

Lets look for a moment at some of his associations:

Rashid Khalidi - a Columbia Univ. professor who worked with WAFA -PLO's news agency. He is one of the co-founders of Arab American Action Network which sponsored anti-Israeli events in Chicago. Obama served on the board of Woods Fund, which made grants to the anti-Israeli Network.

Ali Abunimah - a Palestinian from Chicago who founded the "Electronic Intifada", a rabid anti-Israeli, vicious, website. He attended a fundraiser for Obama's congressional campaign.

Edward Said - another Columbia Univ. professor, long time associate of Obama's. A major-league agitator who was photographed throwing a rock at an Israeli guardhouse from the Lebanese, Said was an advisor to Arafat and now, an opponent of the so-called "peace process" that only a confused impotent like Olmert still pretends to believe in.

Gen. Merrill McPeak -Obama's chief military adviser. In a 2003 interview he blamed the Jews in New York and Miami for the stalled peace process in the Middle East.

Robert Malley - criticized Israel for the failed 2000 Camp David talks (when another confused and deluded Israeli PM almost gave Arafat a Palestinian state). He was later fired from Obama's campaign after it came to light that he was in constant contact with Hamas.

Zbigniew Brzezinski - Jimmy Carter's national security advisor. Has praised the anti-Israeli, subtle anti-Semitic book "The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy". Obama distanced himself somewhat from Brzezinski, but still keeps him as advisor.

Samanta Power - anti-Israeli Pulitzer-Prize winner, thinks that US policy is overly influenced by Jewish interests and that US should slash billions of dollars in aid to Israel and instead, invest in the Palestinian territories. She was fired after calling Hillary a "monster".

Add to this gallery of unsavory characters haters, racists and anti-Semites like Rev. Wright and Farrakhan (he endorsed Obama right from the start) and you have a pretty good (albeit frightening) idea of what an Obama administration look like.

And it doesn't matter if you are a Jew or not, if you care about Israel or not. Ignorance of the complex issues of the Middle East and the Islamo-fascism in general is dangerous for everybody.

Obama must be stopped and the best way to do so is to inform and get informed!
