Obama's Democrat foreign policy nemesis, Senator Menendez to be indicted

http://www.cnn.com/2015/03/06/politics/robert-menendez-criminal-corruption-charges-planned/

THE CHICAGO WAY.....

MENENDEZ WAS VERY VERY VERY OPPOSED TO BOTH OBAMA'S CUBA AND IRAN POLICIES.

HIS IMPENDING INDICTMENT SENDS A MESSAGE TO ALL THE E OTHER SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN THAT OBAMA IS NOT TO BE MESSED WITH.

WILL OBAMA PARDON HILLARY?

Just asking...


DEFINITION OF MOST LIBERALS: "people who are too convinced of their own intelligence to actually do any thinking"

LIBERALS ARE:
 .... people who are too convinced of their own intelligence to actually do any thinking....
EXAMPLE:

LAST NIGHT I WAS HAVING A DISCUSSION WITH AN IVY LEAGUE EDUCATED LIBERAL WITH AN M.A. IN HISTORY.

WE WERE DISCUSSING CIRCUMCISION PRACTICES OF MUSLIMS AND JEWS.

HE MADE AN ASSERTION OF FACT WHICH I COUNTERED; HE WAS VEHEMENT ABOUT HIS ASSERTION, SO MUCH SO THAT I BECAME A LITTLE DOUBTFUL OF MINE.

I WENT HOME AND DID A LITTLE RESEARCH AND FOUND AMPLE EVIDENCE I WAS AT LEAST PARTIALLY  RIGHT AND HE WAS PARTIALLY WRONG.

AND THAT ON THE LARGER POINT UNDER DISCUSSION, I WAS RIGHT.

WHEN I EMAILED THE EVIDENCE TO HIM, HE REPLIED THAT HE DIDN'T WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING MORE ON THE SUBJECT AS HAS MIND WAS MADE UP.

THIS IS THE TYPICAL LIBERAL RESPONSE WHEN THEY ARE GIVEN COUNTER-EVIDENCE TO A BASIC BELIEF.

"SHUT UP, YOU'RE A RACIST!" IS JUST A VARIANT.

WHEREAS WHEN MY BELIEF WAS CHALLENGED I WENT AND DID RESEARCH AND FOUND THE FACTS... THE TRUTH.

THIS IS BASICALLY HOW AND WHY I BECAME  CONSERVATIVE:

I RESEARCHED BOTH SIDES OF MANY POLITICAL DEBATES AND FOUND OUT  THAT THE VIEWS THAT WERE THEN FOR ME "THE OTHER SIDE" WERE MORE CONVINCING AND TRUTHFUL.

AND I CHOSE TO BE ON THE SIDE OF THE TRUTH.

LIBERALS RESPOND THE WAY THEY DO - BY PUTTING BLINDERS ON THEIR EYES AND COVERING THEIR EARS - BECAUSE THEIR DESIRE TO REMAIN LIBERAL IS PARAMOUNT, AND THEY DO NOT CARE IF THEY ARE FACTUALLY INCORRECT OR OR IF HAVE AN OPINION BASED ON FALSEHOOD, LIES AND PROPAGANDA.

MOST LIBERALS ARE EITHER BORN INTO A LIBERAL HOME OR ARE BRAINWASHED IN COLLEGE.

IT'S TRULY THE SAFE-HAVEN OF UNEXAMINED IDEAS.

TO REMAIN A LIBERAL, IN A WORLD WHERE THE TRUTH IS READILY AVAILABLE - AND THE PROOF THAT LEFTISM HAS ALWAYS FAILED IS TOO - REQUIRES THEM TO BLOCK OUT AND DENY AND ATTACK.

SIGH...

HAVING HILLARY AND HER STAFF DETERMINE WHICH EMAILS ARE RETURNED TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS LIKE HAVING PUTIN INVESTIGATE THE ASSASSINATION OF NEMTSOV

HAVING HILLARY AND HER STAFF DETERMINE WHICH EMAILS ARE RETURNED TO THE STATE DEPARTMENT IS LIKE HAVING PUTIN INVESTIGATE THE ASSASSINATION OF NEMTSOV.

JUST SAYING...


ANOTHER CAR JIHAD ATTACK IN JERUSALEM

This one took place near a border patrol police HQ at the Simon the Just neighborhood:
ZAKA reported Friday morning that a rampage terror attack occurred a short time ago near the Border Patrol's base in the Shimon HaTzadik neighborhood in Jerusalem.

A police statement clarified that the Arab terrorist attack was conducted in a private car that approached the base from Zaks Junction before going up on the sidewalk and running over five people, of whom four were from the security forces.

The suspect continued driving but was shot by forces stationed at the gate of the base, at which point he got out of the car with a knife apparently in his hand.

He was shot by officers and serious wounded, after which he was evacuated to the hospital for medical treatment.

"A young man rammed his car (into pedestrians), and then got out and tried to stab people" before being shot and wounded by an armed security guard, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said in a statement.

"Four people were injured," she added. Three policewomen were among the injured and listed in mild to moderate condition. The terrorist is listed in serious condition and is being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem medical center.
If the terrorist dies, he'll deserve it. And for now, he should be refused any access to Korans and Hadiths, since that's where he gets his twisted mindset from.

SATMAR KEEP UP THE HATRED OF ISRAEL

We must now turn our focus to a fifth column keeping up their hostility to Israel. The Satmar gathered outside an Israeli consulate in NYC this week to protest Netanyahu's speech at Congress:
Thousands of members of the Satmar Hasidic sect gathered outside the Israeli consulate in midtown on Tuesday evening to protest a speech by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu they say will lead to war with Iran.
This is eerily reminiscent of the mindset by ignoramuses during WW2. They vehemently refuse to recognize that it's Iran starting the war, and if the west has to fight against them, it's inevitable, because sooner or later, Iran's technology can and will produce long ranging missiles that can threaten the globe.
Stretching along Second Avenue from 44th down to 42nd Street, throngs of men from the insular Jewish community held signs declaring that Netanyahu, who had delivered remarks before a joint session of Congress earlier in the day, did not speak for their community when he challenged President Barack Obama's proposed nuclear deal with Iran.
And the Satmar do not speak for us when they oppose taking action to stop tyrants from prevailing. These same freaks no doubt see nothing wrong with slavery in north Africa either.
Aside from differences on Iran rhetoric, the Satmar community is also theologically opposed to the Israeli state, which they believe can only be brought about after the messiah's arrival, Kellner explained. That makes the idea that Netanyahu would claim to speak for the Jewish people especially offensive.

"The Satmar community is anti-Zionist," Kellner told the Voice as young men crowded shoulder to shoulder, pushing in to hear the rabbi's words. "We believe in the coming of the messiah, but we believe we can only pray for the messiah to come."
Pray, but not do anything, that's the way of these pseudo-religious anti-war nuts. They throughly misinterpret everything about the Torah/Bible, and embrace socialism, rejecting the statements that God only helps those who help themselves.
In their view, Kellner said, until a scripturally legitimate Israel comes to be, the faithful are commanded to respect the secular authorities of the countries in which they live, and that duty precludes support for a Jewish state. "We have to behave with respect to all the nations, because now is the time of the nations. We can't just grab territory and say it's ours," Kellner said. "In our belief we have to wait, in exile, with patience, for God to send the messiah."
When God does send the messiah, it won't be to help those baboons, because they're lazying around on welfare, not helping to build better worlds.
Joel Cohen, 35, another of the demonstrators, said that he felt Netanyahu's recent comments had endangered his community, and all Jewish communities worldwide. In the wake of a series of anti-Semitic attacks in France and Denmark, Netanyahu, in a speech in February, urged "mass immigration" of Europe's Jewish population to Israel, saying Europe had become unsafe for the Jewish people. Cohen said he felt that kind of rhetoric could make life more difficult for Jewish communities outside of Israel.

"He makes them [Jewish communities] uncomfortable in their country, and it makes other people uncomfortable with the Jews, like 'you're only here temporarily, you're going to be leaving, it's not your country, and you're not loyal to the country, you're loyal to Israel,' " Cohen says. "And we feel just the opposite. We're loyal to the country we live in, and we have to, by [religious] law, be loyal to the country we live in."
Another most offensive ignoramus has spoken. The jihadists in Europe are the ones making everything uncomfortable for Jews and native races, far worse than the politicians who've turned their backs on them. But no surprise a man who surely reads news censored by the Satmar dictation boards would spout such naive nonsense. And this is the same community that blatantly exploits the taxpayers of Monroe, and recently held a meeting about their plans to expand Kiryas Joel in the middle of snowy weather when few could make it. Whoever they're "loyal" to, it sure isn't the taxpayers they've caused frustration for. They may not realize it, but their contemptuous acts could encourage anti-semitism, and one day, it may turn out that's just what their leadership wants.

TODAY BEGINS THE TRIAL OF THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER

The trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is beginning (Hat tip: The Jawa Report):
Federal prosecutors have painted Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as a cold-blooded terrorist who knew exactly what he was doing when he allegedly detonated the second of two bombs along Boylston Street near the marathon’s finish line. They say Tsarnaev left a note scrawled in a Watertown, Mass., boat where he hid after the blasts. “The U.S. Government is killing our innocent civilians,” the note read, according to his indictment. “We Muslims are one body, you hurt one you hurt us all.” Prosecutors say that, questioned in the hospital after he was apprehended, Tsarnaev confessed to the bombings and showed no remorse.
Tsarnaev should be given the death sentence for his repulsive crime, but he probably won't get it. As we've seen in the past decade, justice hasn't always been what it could've.

THE REAL WORRIES

Steven J. Rosen pointed a short time ago to what everybody who was making a foolish fuss over Netanyahu's speech to Congress should really be worried about:
The brouhaha over Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's March 3 speech to Congress is diverting attention from more important U.S.-Israel controversies that will escalate soon after this comparatively minor contretemps fizzles out.

At the U.N., the Palestinians and Europeans will press forward after the March 17 Israeli election, submitting draft United Nations Security Council resolutions that they postponed at the request of Secretary of State John F. Kerry. They are pressuring the administration to join this effort to impose terms on Israel, and not to veto.

In the Iran talks, there either will or won't be a framework agreement by the March 31 target date, and either way there will be a clash between friends of Israel and the Obama administration - either about the terms of the agreement, or about intensified sanctions in the absence of an agreement.

At the International Criminal Court (ICC), the "State of Palestine" will achieve full membership on April 1, opening the way for potential war crimes complaints against Israel. By June, the total VAT and clearance revenues that the government of Israel is withholding from the Palestinian Authority will approach $1 billion. The United States and other patrons of the PA will argue that the resulting debt and unpaid salaries to civil servants and security forces are bringing the PA to the point of collapse. Yet, at the same time, the Obama Administration will be required by law to suspend $400 million in U.S. budgetary assistance to the PA.
But there's always a chance it won't. These kind of topics are just what should be in discussion now if we're to prevent these awful incidents from having terrible effects.

SPEECH AT CONGRESS STRENGTHENS ISRAEL-USA CONNECTIONS

Rabbi Dov Fischer says that Netanyahu's speech to Congress has helped strengthen ties between countries on both sides of the ocean. Incredibly, even the editor of an Arabic paper like Al-Arabiya sided with Netanyahu on this issue.

Ari Soffer also says Netanyahu was successful, and yes, it certainly was quite an excellent speech.

Update: here's more from Commentary.

EVERYONE AT THE WHITE HOUSE AND STATE DEPARTMENT WHO SENT OR RECEIVED EMAIL TO OR FROM HILLARY'S ILLEGAL PRIVATE ACCOUNT - AND WITHHELD THAT INFORMATION - IS GUILTY OF CONSPIRACY

NYTIMES FRONT PAGE: Using Private Email, Hillary Clinton ThwartedRecord Requests
 WASHINGTON — In 2012, congressional investigators asked the State Department for a wide range of documents related to the attack on the United States diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya. The department eventually responded, furnishing House committees with thousands of documents. But it turns out that that was not everything. 
The State Department had not searched the email account of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton because she had maintained a private account, which shielded it from such searches, department officials acknowledged on Tuesday. 
It was only last month that the House committee appointed to investigate Benghazi was provided with about 300 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails related to the attacks. 
That was shortly after Mrs. Clinton turned over, at the State Department’s request, some 50,000 pages of government ­related emails that she had kept on her private account. 
It was one of several instances in which records requests sent to the State Department, which had no access to Mrs. Clinton’s emails, came up empty.
HILLARY BROKE THE LAW.

EV EN THE NYTIMES KNOWS THIS, AND THEY KNOW WHY.

AND EVERY SINGLE GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHO GOT OR SENT EMAIL TO HILLARY AND HER ILLEGAL EMAIL ADDRESS IS GUILTY, TOO BECAUSE THEY KNEW AND PARTICIPATED IN THE ACTIVITY AND COVER-UP.

THEY SHOULD ALL BE DRAGGED IN FRONT OF THE COMMITTEE AND ASKE,

"WHEN DID YOU FIND OUT HILLARY WAS USING AN ILLEGAL EMAIL ADDRESS AND WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT IT, IF ANYTHING?"

FRANZ KAFKA: "BLEAK LIVES MATTER!"

OFFERED WITHOUT COMMENT:


TRANSCRIPT OF NETANYAHU'S SPEECH TO CONGRESS

The Weekly Standard has the transcript of Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress. I saw it televised, and it was very good.

And it should make clear why electing Yitzhak Herzog would be very bad for Israel and the rest of the region.

THE DEBLASIO EFFECT: MURDERS UP 20%

The murder rate in New York City has spiked an alarming 20% in the first two months of the year, prompting NYPD brass to rethink strategy to curb the deadly trend. Since Jan. 1, 54 murders have been recorded in the city, up nine from the same period a year ago, according to the grim stats released Monday. Shootings have also climbed 20% — with 149 so far in 2015 compared with 126 in the first two months of 2014.
ENDING STOP-AND-FRISK WAS A MISTAKE.
IT WAS MADE TO PANDER TO BLACKS AND THE LEFT.
IT HURTS BLACKS THE MOST.

IF BRATTON HAD BALLS HE'D DEMAND IT RETURNED OR RESIGN.

DEFEATING JIHAD BY TURNING THE TABLES ON THEM

Because our enemies in the current global war against jihadism are not all nation-states, and are not necessarily connected by anything more than a commitment to the hideous ideology of jihadism, and because their attacks on us and our allies are often ASYMMETRIC - costing them very little and costing us a lot - we need to adjust or strategy.

We've been using boot on the ground and expensive weaponry and efforting to retaliate.

This has gotten us nowhere. The enemy knows that they can gradually wear us down - even bankrupt us, and win a war of attrition. They see this as the reason why they've retaken most of Iraq and Afghanistan and also taken most of Syria and Libya.

To defeat this enemy we need to restore deterrence and fear.

We can do this by announcing that beginning tomorrow, whenever jihadists from any jihadist group located anywhere attack us or our allies anywhere, then we will retaliate on any jihadists anywhere.

I argue this because I think we waste too much time and energy trying to connect each attack to an exact and specific set of co-conspirators and then waste more time and resources trying to pinpoint our counter-attack against only those co-conspirators.

In the vast scheme of things, it really makes no difference if, for example, the Charlie Hedbo attacks were planned by AQAO in Yemen or ISIS in Syria or were lone wolves attacks carried out by sociopaths inspired by a variety of imams on the internet.

What matters is that we send a clear message to all the people who would perform these types of attacks or who have aided and abetted these types of attacks that attacks on us and our allies will not be tolerated, and that we will not be bullied by these attacks into submission.

What matters is that jihadists and wannabe jihadists everywhere learn that their attacks will never succeed and that they will only bring them and their co-conspirators - and their ideological and financial supporters - disproportionate suffering, death and defeat.

We teach them this simply by announcing that after any jihadist terror attack on us or our allies anywhere that we will speedily counter-attack against the most opportune jihadist target available anywhere with as much disproportionate force as possible - but one that also that yields the least possible collateral damage.

For example: an attack by ISIS in France might be countered by bombing a Boko Haram camp in Nigeria. For example: an attack by AQAP in Sinai might be countered by bombing an MILF camp in Mindanao, or a Taliban camp in Afghanistan.

And this requires no boots on the ground, just missiles and drones launched by the US Navy, Air Force and Marines.

The enemy we face is mostly united by their ideology - and not a hierarchy of command and control functionaries who are public members of nation states. All I am saying that the most effective counter-attack we could wage against these jihadists would be by counter-attacking against any the jihadists anywhere who hold that same basic ideology.

And make them ALL afraid of being whacked anytime any one of them whacks any one of us us anywhere.

Turning the tables on them.


DEEP CONCERN FOR ALL

Here's 3 tweets Netanyahu wrote as he's traveled to Washington to deliver his speech:

HOW WE CAN SUCCESSFULLY COUNTER ASYMMETRIC JIHADO-TERROR BY NON-NATION-STATE PLAYERS

MANY FOLKS WERE EXHAUSTED BY THE AFGHAN WAR AND THE IRAQ WAR AND THEREFORE HATE THE BUSH DOCTRINE AND ARE WEARY OF WAR AND LEERY OF PUTTING ANY BOOTS ON THE GROUND ANYWHERE.

BUT THE OBAMA DOCTRINE IS AN ABYSMAL FAILURE FOR THE FREE WORLD:

THE WORLD IS AFLAME WITH JIHADIST VIOLENCE FROM WEST AFRICA TO THE PHILIPPINES.

SYRIA AND IRAQ ARE COLLAPSING AND THREATENING OUR ALLIES JORDAN AND EGYPT AND ISRAEL.

OBAMA'S WAR AGAINST KADDAFY HAS MADE LIBYA A STATELESS COUNTRY AND DESTABILIZED NORTH AFRICA.

WE NEED TO CHANGE STRATEGY IF WE ARE TO SURVIVE.

Andy McCarthy suggests we return to the Bush Doctrine, with an addendum:
... the Bush Doctrine [...] remains the only [strategy] that has any chance of working . . . at least if we add a small but crucial addendum — one that should have been obvious enough back in 2001, and that hard lessons of history have now made inescapable. 
[...] The unadorned Bush Doctrine had two straightforward parts. First, because violent jihadists launch attacks against the United States when they have safe havens from which to plot and train, we must hunt down those terrorists wherever on earth they operate. Second, the nations of the world must be put to a choice: You are with us or you are with the terrorists. Period — no middle ground. If you are with the terrorists, you will be regarded, as they are regarded, as an enemy of the United States. 
[...]The Bush Doctrine ...  is the path to victory — if we get that one addendum right. It is this: Our enemies are not driven by American foreign policy, our friendship with Israel, our detention of jihadists at Gitmo, or the supposed “arrogance” our current president likes to apologize for. Those are all pretexts for aggression. Our enemies are driven by an ideology, Islamic supremacism, that is rooted in a classical interpretation of sharia — Islamic law. Islamic supremacism is rabidly anti-American, anti-Western, and anti-Semitic. It rejects the fundamental premise of our liberty: that people are free to govern themselves, rather than be ruled by a totalitarian legal code that suffocates liberty and brutally discriminates against non-Muslims and apostates. And sharia is an actual war on women — denying them equal rights under the law, subjecting them to unthinkable abuse, and reducing them in many ways to chattel. In the “you are with us or you are with the terrorists” view of national security, any Muslim nation, organization, or individual that adheres to Islamic supremacism is on the wrong side. Failing to come to terms with that brute fact is where the Bush Doctrine went awry. 
[...] But it does mean we should be using all our assets — not just military but intelligence, law-enforcement, financial, and diplomatic — to undermine regimes that support sharia supremacism. 
Cutting off that jihadist life-line is the path to victory — just as maintaining a strong military that is allowed to show it means business, that is not hamstrung by irresponsible rules of engagement, is the best way to ensure we won’t have to use it too often. In Iran, where sharia is the law of the land, they persecute non-Muslims and apostates just like ISIS does. In Saudi Arabia, where sharia is the law of the land, they behead their prisoners just like ISIS does. A candidate who cannot tell liberty’s friends from liberty’s enemies is not fit to be commander-in-chief.
I HAVE ARGUED THIS VERY THING FOR YEARS. 

I HAVE ESPECIALLY ARGUED THAT WE NEED TO TREAT SHARIA NATIONS WHICH CONDONE ISLAMO-MISOGYNY AS WE DID STATES WHICH TRADED IN SLAVES AND ALLOWED SLAVERY:

THESE NATIONS NEED TO BE UTTERLY SHUNNED BY THE FREE WORLD; BANNED FROM TRADE AND AL INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS.

BUT - IN MY OPINION - BECAUSE OUR ENEMIES 

  1. ARE NOT ALL NATION-STATES, AND ARE 
  2. NOT NECESSARILY CONNECTED BY ANYTHING MORE THAN A COMMITMENT TO THE HIDEOUS IDEOLOGY OF JIHADISM, AND
  3. THE ATTACKS ARE OFTEN ASYMMETRIC - COSTING THE ENEMY VERY LITTLE AND COSTING US A LOT - 

WE NEED TO ADD MORE MORE ELEMENT: 

WE NEED TO ANNOUNCE THAT WHEN JIHADISTS FROM ANY JIHADIST GROUP LOCATED ANYWHERE ATTACK US OR OUR ALLIES ANYWHERE, THEN WE WILL RETALIATE ON ANY JIHADISTS ANYWHERE.

WE WASTE TOO MUCH TIME AND ENERGY TRYING TO CONNECT EACH ATTACK TO AN EXACT SET OF CONSPIRATORS AND TRYING TO PINPOINT A COUNTER-ATTACK ON ONLY THOSE CONSPIRATORS.

IN THE VAST SCHEME OF THINGS, IT REALLY MAKES NO DIFFERENCE IF, FOR EXAMPLE, THE CHARLIE HEDBO ATTACKS WERE PLANNED BY AQAP IN YEMEN OR ISIS IN SYRIA OR WERE LONE WOLVES ATTACKS CARRIED OUT BY SOCIOPATHS INSPIRED BY A VARIETY OF IMAMS ON THE INTERNET.

WHAT MATTERS IS THAT WE SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE THAT ATTACKS ON US AND OUR ALLIES WILL NOT BE TOLERATED, AND THAT WE WILL NOT BE BULLIED INTO SUBMISSION.

WHAT MATTERS IS THAT JIHADISTS AND WANNABE JIHADISTS LEARN THAT THEIR ATTACKS WILL NEVER SUCCEED AND WILL ONLY BRING THEM AND THEIR CO-CONSPIRATORS AND THEIR SPIRITUAL AND FINANCIAL SUPPORTERS DISPROPORTIONATE SUFFERING DEATH AND DEFEAT.

AND THAT MEANS THAT:
  • AFTER AN JIHADIST TERROR ATTACK...
  • ON US OR OUR ALLIES...
  • WE WILL SPEEDILY COUNTER-ATTACK... 
  • AGAINST THE MOST OPPORTUNE JIHADIST TARGET AVAILABLE... 
  • WITH AS MUCH DISPROPORTIONATE FORCE AS POSSIBLE... 
  • THAT YIELDS THE LEAST POSSIBLE COLLATERAL DAMAGE.
FOR EXAMPLE: AN ATTACK BY ISIS IN FRANCE MIGHT BE COUNTERED BY BOMBING A BOKO HARAM CAMP IN NIGERIA.

FOR EXAMPLE: AN ATTACK BY AQAP IN SINAI MIGHT BE COUNTERED BY BOMBING AN MILF CAMP IN MINDANAO, OR A TALIBAN CAMP IN AFGHANISTAN.

AND THIS REQUIRES NO BOOTS ON THE GROUND, JUST MISSILES AND DRONES LAUNCHED BY THE US NAVY, AIR FORCE AND MARINES.

A GLOBAL PROBLEM REQUIRES A GLOBAL RESPONSE.

WHEN WE RESPOND GLOBALLY WE SEND A MESSAGE TO ALL THE JIHADISTS - OF EVERY VARIETY - AND ALL THE NATIONS WHICH HARBOR THEM OR AID THEM.

WE ESSENTIALLY TELL THE ENEMY:

IF WE ARE NOT SAFE, THEN YOU ARE NOT SAFE.

NOT YOU AND NOT ANYONE LIKE YOU, IDEOLOGICALLY.



MUSLIMS IN WADI ARA SHUN HERZOG AND LIVNI

The left-wing "Zionist Union" went to a campaign conference in the Arabic neighborhood of Wadi Ara, and were greeted by surely the most hostile reception you could expect for a leftist party from a community they're trying to pander to:
Dozens of Arabs, the ones who are full-fledged Israelis complete with citizenship, greeted Yitzchak Herzog and Tzipi Livni Saturday with catcalls, slurs, Palestinian Authority flags and fights when the duo visited the area of Wadi Ara, a hotbed of Islamic Movement radicals.

Protesters called the new faction, a merger of Livni's HaTnua and the Labor parties, "radical right-wingers" with "blood on their hands."


Bujie and Tzipi are tied up in the age-old bleeding heart philosophy that if you simply show the Arabs you really aren't so Jewish and Zionist, they will hug and kiss you without a knife in the back.

The demonstrators on Saturday southeast of Haifa were more honest than that. Herzog and Livni's "Zionist Camp" gimmick is the last thing that is going to convince Arabs who openly want a "one-state" solution that they can be partners for peaceful co-existence so long as there is a Jewish government.

There were many Arab supporters for Herzog and Livni during Saturday's campaign stop, but they and the "Members of the Homeland" protesters literally fought with each other, leading to six arrests.

"We do not want anyone from the Zionist Union to come here. They are accomplices to murders against the Palestinian nation," one protester said, according to Yediot Acharonot.
This is a lot different from what you might've expected in past times. The name they've now given the Labor party certainly isn't impressing upon anybody there. Also of important note:
Last month, the Zionist Union was forced to cancel a planned campaign event in Nazareth, likely due to pressure from the Arab Joint List and its supporters, media reported at the time.

The Kul al-Arab site reported the visit was dropped because the mayor and the municipality had come under pressure from the Joint List, which feared the Zionist Union would take away Arab votes.

Kul al-Arab owner and general manager Fayez Eshtiwy told The Jerusalem Post at the time that he had heard Nazareth Mayor Ali Salam canceled because he was sick with a cold. However, “the question is if that is the truth.”
An excellent question. It is possible that this election, Labor will get far less votes from Arab citizens than before, partly due to their supporting a disqualification of one of the Arab party's members, even though the supreme court reversed it.

IS THAT POSSIBLE?

The Daily Caller found a shocker from Arabic media claiming that Obama threatened to gun down Israeli jet fighters:
Citing “well-placed sources,” Al-Jarida claims that sometime in 2014, the Israeli government made plans to attack Iran when they heard that the United States and Iran were on the cusp of striking a secret nuclear deal behind Israeli’s back. The decision was made after Israel learned the terms of the deal were supposedly “a threat to Israel’s security.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu allegedly came to the decision after four nights of deliberation with commanders, and Israeli jets even managed experimental test flights in Iranian airspace after evading Iranian radars. But when an Israeli official with good ties to the Obama administration revealed the planned airstrikes, Obama allegedly threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets.
Could that have really been the case? It's obviously not clear, but all the same, it still give a very lurid feeling. No wonder it's a good idea to go to Washington now to debate this whole issue of Iran's nuclear development.

AIPAC THANKS CONGRESS

Bloomberg's reported that AIPAC thanks Congress for those who've defended Netanyahu's visit and speech:
"Thank goodness for Congress!" said Howard Kohr, the CEO of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.

Applause filled the Washington Convention Center, from thousands of people attending AIPAC's annual policy conference. In the Obama years, AIPAC's show of force in Washington often overlapped with a moment of tension or scandal in the relationship between the president and the Likud government of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This year's conference coincides with Netanyahu's speech to a joint session of Congress, which originated in conversations with the Republican leadership—not, as is the norm, via conversations with the White House. [...]

The Netanyahu drama, which will hang over the entire week, mostly emphasized how much support Israel otherwise had in Washington. "We have spent many active hours lobbying for members of the House and Senate to attend this speech," said Kohr.

Cardin won more applause by telling the AIPAC crowd about legislation "coming this week" to use trade negotiations to penalize countries that boycotted, divested from or sanctioned Israel. Graham, newly empowered as a member of the Senate majority, one-upped Cardin again.

"All the money that goes in to support the State Department comes through my committee," said Graham. "I’m gonna put the United Nations on notice." If the U.N. "marginalized" Israel in anyway way, he'd come after its funding.
That's good to hear. If they follow through with stopping funding to the UN, that'll help the USA's own tax money, which is better spent on other developments, preferably non-political. On that note, yes, thank goodness for Congress.

FULL RUMSFELD INTERVIEW

Here is the fuller interview with Donald Rumsfeld about Obama's awful treatment of Netanyahu and why the prime minister's speech for Congress matters. Rumsfeld says the speech can elevate public dialogue on Iran's totalitarianism. And it should. In fact, one could say it's happening already, and the Obama administration's only achieved the opposite of what they'd prefer.

UH-OH/OMFG: Putin foe - Boris Nemstov - assassinated in Moscow!

THIS ASSASSINATION SHOULD SURPRISE NO ONE.

PUTIN IS A KGB, TSARISTIC TYRANT WHO REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO EASTERN EUROPE.

PUTIN'S POWER GRABS WITHIN RUSSIA AND ON RUSSIA'S BORDERS ARE ALL THE RESULT OF OBAMA'S POLICIES.

OBAMA AND HILLARY'S "RUSSIAN RESET" APPEASED PUTIN AND EMBOLDENED HIM, AND OBAMA'S POLICIES HAVE WEAKENED THE WEST.

OTHER TYRANTS NOTICE, TOO - AND THEY'RE ARE EMBOLDENED AS A RESULT.

AND THAT'S WHY THINGS SOON MAY VERY WELL SPIRAL OUT OF HUMAN CONTROL...


Egyptians furious that Obama met the emir of Qatar in the White House

The Egyptians are furious with U.S. President Barack Obama for meeting in the White House this week with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani; here's why:
Many Arabs and Muslims see the meeting between Obama and Qatar's al-Thani as a gift to Qatar for its continued support of Islamic radical groups across the Middle East, including Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Lebanon and the Gaza Strip.
On the eve of Obama's meeting, Egyptian sources revealed that Qatar was providing weapons and ammunition to members of the Islamic State in Libya. The sources said that 35 Qatari aircraft were involved in transferring munitions.
Arab political analysts are also concerned about Obama's ongoing attempts to appease Iran, which continues to expand its presence in Arab countries such as Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon -- as well as in Syria, where it is deeply involved in backing Hezbollah and operating along the border with Israel. A Reuters report revealed that Iran also has hundreds of advisors in Iraq.
Qatar is also one of the biggest funders of Hamas, whose leader, Khaled Mashaal, is based in Qatar's capital, Doha. During the past few years, Qatar has provided Hamas with hundreds of millions of dollars -- money used to purchase and develop weapons to attack Israel.
By the time Obama leaves the White House, Iran will most likely be in control of more Arab countries, and Qatari-backed terror groups will be much stronger.
MORE: 
The meeting came less than a week after the Egyptian envoy to the Arab League, Tareq Adel, accused Qatar of supporting terrorism. In response, Qatar recalled its ambassador to Cairo for "consultations." The latest crisis between Cairo and Doha erupted after Qatar expressed reservations about Egypt's airstrikes against Islamic State targets in Libya in retaliation for the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. On the eve of Obama's meeting with the emir, Egyptian sources revealed that Qatar was providing weapons and ammunition to members of the Islamic State in Libya. 
OBAMA IS NOT FOR PEACE; HE'S ON THE OTHER SIDE.

IT IS A SAD SAD DAY WHEN THE EGYPTIANS ARE MORE ANTI-JIHAD THAN THE US PRESIDENT.
