THE GOP PRESIDENTIAL GALAXY: THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS SCOOPS INSTAPUNDIT AND LITTLE MISS ATTILA BY 2 DAYS
THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS POSTED THIS 2 DAYS AGO.
REGULAR READERS KNOW WE BEAT THE BIGGIES WITH LINKS AND SHARP ANALYSIS AND BLUNT COMMENTARY ALL THE TIME. SPREAD THE WORD.
TEN REASONS WHY IT'S COMPLETELY REASONABLE TO DOUBT PRESIDENT OBAMA'S PARENTAGE AND SUSPECT HIS REAL FATHER IS FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS
First off there's this: why did his mother go to Chicago to become an au pair for the summer of 1960 (we know this was when she went from a passage in Obama's memoir) - her family's first summer in Hawaii? Her family was from Kansas and Washington state - with no known connections to Chicago at all. Why would her parents allow her to go there. Certainly not to work for some unknown family in some unknown neighborhood.
FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS WAS FROM CHICAGO - AND DAVIS'S WHITE WIFE WAS FROM A RICH CHICAGO FAMILY.
Perhaps the Davises made the connection. While in Chicago, Davis was connected to the Jarrett's and the Ayers. Maybe young Stanley Ann Dunham even babysat for young Billy Ayers - he would have been about 10 or 11.
That would mean that the Dunham's and the Davis's were friends YEARS before the "official version" which claims that Davis was a poker playing buddy of the old man Stanley Dunham - but they're hardly birds of a feather - except for their left-wing politics.
Second: There's very suggestive evidence that Mr. and Mrs. Davis were VERY friendly with the young Stanley Ann Dunham - and by very I do mean SEXUALLY CLOSE: in his memoir, Frank Davis wrote, there's an episode in which he describes a three-some he and his wife had with a 14 year old white virgin named... ANN, of all things. Seems to me this could have very well been Stanley ANN Dunham in real life.
Third: Obama looks more like Frank Davis and Frank's son Mark Davis than he looks like Barack Senior or any member of the Obama clan - and I do mean clan - over there in Kenya. In my opinion, Obama Jr. has a family resemblance to the Davis's as much as to the Dunham's but none whatsoever to the Obama's in Kenya.
Fourth: Stanley Ann Dunham Obama Soetero decided to leave Barack Jr. in Hawaii and return alone to SE Asia. She left him with her parents and under the tutelage of Frank Davis - ostensibly to provide young Barry with a good black male role model. But perhaps the REAL reason she felt so secure about ABANDONING her son, was that she was depositing him with his real/biological father?
Fifth: As a teen, Obama wrote a poem - which was published at the time - about Frank Davis. Barry Obama Jr. titled his poem about Frank Davis "POP".
Sixth: Barack's first job was in Chicago. A place he ostensibly has no other connection to besides the fact that his mother was an au pair there (with a rich family that nobody seems to be willing to identify). What's key here is that Obama Jr has told 2 different accounts of how he got this job (one in his book and another to a graduating class at Wesleyan), and the guy who hired him - Kellman - has 2 completely different takes on it (one he told a reporter and one he told at the nominating convention in Denver). THAT'S RIGHT: THERE ARE 4 VERSIONS FROM THE 2 PRINCIPAL PLAYERS. That's odd - unless they are lying; (it's easy to tell the same story over and over again when it's the truth and you've got nothing to hide). Kellman was a protege of Alinsky who was a Chicago comrade of Frank Marshall Davis. Obama and Kellman want to hide this fact, this connection.
Seventh: Obama got into Harvard Law School with references from Percy Sutton who was connected to Malcolm X who was connected to Chicago through the Nation of Islam. Also helping young Obama was a big-time Nation of Islam member from Texas - a place Obama had never ever been. How did young Obama get these references, who was his connection? I'd guess it had to be someone with very strong Chicago connections. DAVIS, again.
Eighth: When Obama graduated from Harvard Law he didn't get a prestigious job at some big Boston or New York or Hawaii law firm or clerk with a big-time federal judge. He could have easily done any of those as the first black Harvard Law Review Editor. He chose instead to work for an extremely politically connected law firm in CHICAGO, of all places. A law firm that did work for REZKO and employed his future wife - the daughter of a CHICAGO MACHINE ALDERMAN. In the Chicago Machine, in order to GET IN THE DOOR, you first have to answer a question: "WHO SENT YOU?" You cannot get in unless someone with connections sent you. UPDATE: Valerie Jarrett worked at the law firm too - and Her father in law was a buddy of... FRANK DAVIS. (Her mom was pals with Tom Ayers = Bill Ayers father. OH: she was born in... Tehran.) (ASIDE: maybe Stanley Ann baby sat for her?!)
SO WHO SENT OBAMA?
The ONLY person who answers ALL of these points and makes ALL of the connections for Barack Obama Junior is FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS.
Only Davis connects all the dots and could have connected Obama to the Ayers and the Jarretts and the Nation of Islam and Kellman and EVERYTHING ELSE.
Frank Marshall Davis didn't do this for everyone - or anyone else. He did it for his first son. The son he expected to fulfill all of HIS DREAMS.
YUP: The REAL FATHER in the title Dreams From My Father is Frank Marshall Davis.
(And I think the REAL AUTHOR of Dreams - Bill Ayers - knows ALL OF THIS. And that the title Ayers chose is an inside joke. I know that Obama was contacted by literary agent Jane Dystel after winning the election to become head of the Harvard Law Review. I know he failed for years to produce a decent manuscript. I think those who argue Ayers is the real author are correct).
Ninth: Neil Abercrombie is the new left-wing Governor of Hawaii. He PROMISED he would put all the "birther" lies to rest by releasing Obama's REAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE as soon as he became governor. Now, he is singing a different tune: he says he cannot release it unless Barack Junior allows it to be released - and Barack Junior is NOT allowing it to be released.
WHY WON'T BARACK JUNIOR RELEASE THE ACTUAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE? WHAT IS HE HIDING?
Tenth: Officials have seen the actual birth certificate and said that nothing in it DISQUALIFIES OBAMA FROM SERVING AS POTUS.
I believe them.
I think what Obama is hiding isn't something that disqualifies him from being POTUS, and that he is a USA citizen.
I believe he is hiding something politically EXPLOSIVE: the fact that his father is Frank Marshall Davis and that he has lived a mendacious charade his whole life and that he was raised and tutored and prepped for a career in politics by the most radical leftists and the most corrupt political machine in the country. They raised him and trained him and bankrolled him and they got him elected Senator and president and they run his White House via Rahm, the Daleys and Jarrett.
He's the Manchurian Candidate spawned by Frank Marshall Davis, trained by Alinsky and his acolytes, and bankrolled and controlled by the Chicago Machine. And Soros.
THIS ALSO EXPLAINS WHY TEDDY KENNEDY AND CAROLINE ENDORSED HIM SO EARLY ON:
THE KENNEDY CLAN HAS BEEN A PART OF THE CHICAGO MACHINE SINCE JOE SENIOR'S DAYS IN CHICAGO AS A BOOTLEGGER AND AS OWNER OF THE CHICAGO MART.
AND ANOTHER THING:
EVEN JOE BIDEN OWES HIS POLITICAL LIFE TO THE CHICAGO MACHINE.
OBAMA GOT IN WITH THIS CROWD VIA HIS REAL FATHER: FRANK MARSHALL DAVIS]
ALL THIS CAN BE DISPROVED BY TAKING A DNA TEST.
By comparing Obama Junior's DNA to that of Mark Davis (his half brother) and any Obama "half-brother" from Kenya we can prove who his father really was.
I doubt Barry Junior will agree.
He has too much to hide.

Muslim Brotherhood Statement on Exporting Gas to IsraelThe Muslim Brotherhood is dismayed by the government’s decision to export gas to Israel at reduced prices at the time when Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) are committing daily massacres against the Palestinian people and the besieged Gaza strip.

The Muslim Brotherhood is dismayed by the government’s decision to export gas to Israel at reduced prices at the time when Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) are committing daily massacres against the Palestinian people and the besieged Gaza strip.
The MB completely rejects this step which allows Israeli Settlers to benefit from Egypt’s resources. Therefore, we emphasize the following,
First: Egypt’s natural wealth is owned by all Egyptians either in the present or future. No one should be allowed to exploit our wealth according to his desires or for his private interests.
Second: Instead of providing Israeli settlers with low-price gas, the real prices of gas should have been used in solving the daily sufferings of the Egyptian people including the bread crisis, price hikes, education, and medical care.
Third: Protecting Egypt’s national security necessitates that the regime stops gas supplies to the IOF which were complicit in the killing of innocent Palestinians and burying our war prisoners alive in 1956, 1967, and 1973 wars. The IOF still threaten our national security through possessing mass destructive weapons.
Fourth: What has been declared in the People’s Assembly by the regime is blatant disrespect of people’s minds. If an Egyptian company has signed a contract to export gas to the Israel, this can easily be corrected through immediately ending the contract without any alleged violation of international treaties or laws.
Fifth: Joint Arab Defense Treaty obligates the Egyptian government to export surplus gas to Palestine to be used in supplying power and fuel necessary for Palestinian lives especially that they suffer from a deadly siege and continuous aggression by Israeli Occupation Forces.
Based on the above, the MB calls upon all national forces as well as the Egyptian people to declare their discontent and refusal of such a flagrant decision. We also call on parliamentarians to move swiftly and effectively towards the cancellation of this contract (if there’s any), stop the gas supply to the IOF, and export it instead to other countries at standard world prices. This will save billions of dollars to be added to the state’s general budget to solve some of the citizen’s chronic problems.

HIZBALLAH WILL SOON DO THE SAME THING ON THEIR BORDER WITH ISRAEL:
ALL THIS IS AT THE BEHEST OF IRAN AND IN THE NAME OF GLOBAL JIHAD.
Next Flashpoint in Mideast Could Be Gas Fields Off Mediterranean Coast
Dispute With Lebanon Could Be Ignited
The next flashpoint in the Middle East could be the gas fields off Israel's Mediterranean coast, where the discovery of large cashes of natural gas is raising hopes that Israel could soon become energy-self-sufficient but where a dispute with Lebanon could be ignited.
The Iran-influenced Beirut government is threatening to defend its maritime “rights” and is complaining about Israel’s explorations. Lebanon’s appeals for international intervention begun last summer, immediately after Israel’s off shore gas explorations showed signs of positive results. Now that years of exploration have yielded what some energy experts estimate to be the world’s largest deepwater gas discovery in a decade, Beirut is raising the tone of its demands.
Lebanon’s foreign minister, Ali Shami, in a letter to Secretary General Ban, demanded the United Nations assure that “Israel does not exploit Lebanon’s marine and oil wealth, which lies within its exclusive economic zone.” Last June a Shiite politician with ties to Hezbollah, Nabih Berri, speaker of the parliament at Beirut, asserted that Israel’s newly-discovered gas was actually found in Lebanon’s territorial waters.The United Nations is to date unwilling to intervene, but today it added to the confusion by saying Israel “unilaterally” delineated its maritime border with Lebanon.
AND - BECAUSE OBAMA IS DITHERING AND APPEASING THE ENEMY - THE PACE WILL ONLY INCREASE.
BETTER BRACE YOURSELVES...
More than four years after its publication, five disgruntled readers have filed a class-action lawsuit against President Jimmy Carter and his publisher, Simon & Schuster, alleging that his 2006 book "Palestine Peace Not Apartheid" contained "numerous false and knowingly misleading statements intended to promote the author's agenda of anti-Israel propaganda and to deceive the reading public instead of presenting accurate information as advertised."Simon & Shuster were once a very decent publisher. But if I'm correct, they were later bought by a German business, and have plummeted badly.
The five plaintiffs named in the lawsuit are seeking at least $5 million in compensation. The hard cover edition cost $27.
The suit accuses Carter and his publisher of violating New York consumer protection laws because they engaged in "deceptive acts in the course of conducting business" and alleges that they sought enrichment by promoting the book "as a work of non-fiction."
In a press release, one of the attorneys, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner stated: "The lawsuit will expose all the falsehoods and misrepresentations in Carter's book and prove that his hatred of Israel has led him to commit this fraud on the public. He is entitled to his opinions but deceptions and lies have no place in works of history."And Carter fully deserves to get slapped with this lawsuit. I hope it's successful. In fact, many conservatives should be suing liberals who write slanderous lies like what Carter's written against them.
US president Obama should stop making a mess in the Middle East and changing his position twice in two days around the most serious situation facing world peace—the future of Egypt. He should stop using Absolute Good as his point of reference, instead of the good of his country and of the rest of the world which, behind the US, believes in freedom, free market, monogamy and rights of women. What does he think he’s playing with? What kind of information has Mrs. Clinton when she tells us, “It doesn’t matter who's in power [however, who knows, maybe Mubarak will pull through, she seems to be hinting—ed.], the point is how we respond to the legitimate needs and complaints of the Egyptian people". Fine, but does Obama—who in offering this line after a number of hours of uncertainty, dumped his long-time ally, his point-of-reference in the Arab world —know that among the “complaints”, the toughest ones (commonly seen in the streets) are not only against Mubarak, but against the US and Israel, and the Western world in general? Does he know that this great revolution in the streets, that according to our cultural parameters has something to do above all with social issues, must instead be evaluated in terms of a completely different Islamic and Arab culture? Or must we continue to pretend that the crowd in the squares is only talking about bread and job?Well put, and Hilary Clinton should stop acting as though she's fit to deal with the situation too. They're not qualified at all.
Despite his apparent conservative credentials, Krauthammer had already become somewhat problematic after his stunning denunciation of the intrepid Geert Wilders at National Review Online. This is a great enigma since, extrapolating from his earlier track record as a sober and insightful observer of the world’s combustible transactions, Krauthammer might have been expected to give the Dutch parliamentarian his seal of approval. But to slander Wilders — a vigorous critic of political correctness, a courageous defender of democratic rights, and a man dedicated to resisting the Islamic cannibalizing of Western civilization — as “extreme, radical and wrong” is clearly beyond the pale. So gratuitous a condemnation seems especially mean-spirited when one recalls that Wilders is living under an Islamic death fatwa for speaking his mind. The stigma lies more with the American journalist than the Dutch politician.Kudos to Solway for citing these horrific hypocritical tactics Krauthammer has engaged in, which has often made me feel truly disgusted with him. Krauthammer has also implied he doesn't want people like me to live in east Jerusalem, and Caroline Glick rightly took him to task for that too. In that case, is he really worth turning to for worthy commentary? His job at the Washington Post, a left-liberal newspaper, should give a clue how he's merely symbolic.
And when Krauthammer proceeds to dismiss “Islamism” as merely “an ideology of a small minority,” he loses credibility, revealing a state of denial more plausibly associated with America’s coastal elites, public intellectuals, academic limpets, and media dilettantes like Paul Krugman, Peter Beinart, Thomas Friedman, David Remnick et al. Andrew Bostom takes Krauthammer roundly to task for his “fundamental ignorance of mainstream, classical Islamic Law” and for his “uninformed, incoherent musings on Geert Wilders and Islam.” Diana West, too, in The Death of the Grown-Up, castigates Krauthammer for going “all mushy on us,” passing off as “Islamist” what is plainly part of “Islam as a whole, as a historical continuum, as the theology of what we know as terrorism, as a rationale for dhimmi repression.” How someone as presumably knowledgeable as Krauthammer could become on this matter a charter member of the middlebrow illiterati is troubling.
He clearly leans toward the conservative standpoint on the major questions of foreign policy and the Constitution; yet on social issues such as abortion, energy taxes, and stealth jihad he seems sympathetic to the liberal perspective. True, he opposes the Cordoba mosque project as a violation of “hallowed ground”; on the other hand, as we have seen, he trashes Wilders who has spoken passionately against the Cordoba mosque. What gives? The same man who came out strongly in Israel’s defense during the 2006 “Lebanon War,” backed by the conservative right, also supported Ariel Sharon’s disastrous “disengagement” from Gaza in 2005, which was naturally encouraged by the liberal-left.
I think it's time for the conservative movement to stop relying on someone as cynical as Krauthammer for observations on the state of the world. He is no help in the war against Islamofascism, and if he slandered Wilders, then the Dutchman should seriously consider suing him in court, which would decidedly be a big help in dealing with RINOs.

BECAUSE SINCE 9/11/01 --- AND DESPITE 9/11/01 ---- WE HAVE REFUSED TO FIGHT UNLIMITED WAR....BETTER BRACE YOURSELVES...
(AND BECAUSE THE ENEMY KNOWS IT), THE ENEMY HAS US PINNED DOWN IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.
AND NOW - FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES, AND WITHOUT A KINETIC BATTLE - THEY ARE ABOUT TO TAKE OVER EGYPT AND LEBANON AND JORDAN....
JUST AS IRAN IS ABOUT TO GO NUCLEAR....
AND AS THE NUKE-CAPABLE QUASI-NEO-PSEUDO DEMOCRACY PAKISTAN TEETERS ON THE VERGE.
WITH SIDE-WARS FLARING UP IN PHILIPPINES, AND THAILAND, AND AFRICA...
AND WITH MORE ATTACKS THAN EVER HERE AT HOME...
THEY ARE CLEARLY WINNING.
IN JUST TWO YEARS, OBAMA HAS GIVEN THEM THE CLEAR EDGE.
THE ENEMY HAS CLEARLY REDUCED OUR SPHERE OF INFLUENCE AND ARE NOW IN A POSITION TO PICK UP THE PACE GLOBALLY.
AND LIKE ALL GOOD MEMBERS OF THE CP IN THE USSR, MEMBERS AND SUPPORTERS OF THE MACHINE LIKE GET SPECIAL DEALS:
WE CALLED OBAMA A BREZHNEV SOCIALIST A MONTH BEFORE THE ELECTION IN 2008.
WE WERE RIGHT - AND THE OBAMACARE WAIVERS PROVE IT ONCE AGAIN - JUST AS MUCH AS THE GM BAILOUT DID AND JEFF IMMELT'S RECENT APPOINTMENT DOES AND BILL DALEY'S APPOINTMENT DOES.
IF OBAMACARE WAS ANY GOOD THEN NOBODY WOULD WANT A WAIVER.
THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE IT FAIR IS TO GIVE EVERYONE A WAIVER.
TIMES HAVEN'T CHANGED; THE ENEMY HASN'T CHANGED; ONLY THE COURAGE OF ARAB LEADERS AND THE POTUS HAS CHANGED
- Hussein fought a war to the death versus Arafat and the "extremists".
- Abdullah 2 is caving in.
And remember: it was the exit of Arafat from Jordan (forced by King Hussein) and his entry into Lebanon that led to the horrific Lebanese civil war:
September 1970 is known as the Black September (Arabic: أيلول الأسود) in Arab history and sometimes is referred to as the "era of regrettable events." It was a month when Hashemite King Hussein of Jordan moved to quash the militancy of Palestinian organizations and restore his monarchy's rule over the country.ISLAMISM BRINGS DEATH AND DESTRUCTION WITH IT WHEREVER IT GOES.
The violence resulted in the deaths of thousands of people, the vast majority Palestinian.
Armed conflict lasted until July 1971 with the expulsion of the PLO and thousands of Palestinian fighters to Lebanon.
WE MUST DEFEAT IT OR SUFFER THE CONSEQUENCES.
WITH LEADERS LIKE OBAMA AND KING ABDULLAH 2 - WHO ARE CAVING INTO THE ISLAMIST THREAT - WE SHALL CERTAINLY NOT DEFEAT THEM.
U.S. security officials warned major Wall Street institutions of a potential threat after an al Qaeda-linked magazine suggested financial markets could be a target of attack, the FBI said on Tuesday.
The meetings with financial institutions took place over a couple of days in January after authorities circulated a bulletin to law enforcement agencies warning about "Inspire" magazine, which bills itself as the periodical of Yemeni-based Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
Next year, Fidelity Investments will move from Lower Manhattan to Jersey City.
Deloitte & Touche, the auditing and financial advisory firm, is also leaving the area, for Rockefeller Center, while a neighbor, the Japanese bank Nomura, appears headed to Midtown.
The loss of additional companies from the city’s historic financial district and the surrounding blocks has in the past led to hand-wringing by planners, politicians and landlords about the dubious future of Lower Manhattan.
But this time, the news has been greeted with as many yawns as laments.
Finance still dominates the neighborhood, but Lower Manhattan has changed remarkably over the past 10 years. The residential population has more than doubled since Sept. 11, and the number of hotels has tripled to 18. More important, there are a growing number of law firms, tech companies and nonprofit organizations moving into the district.
IT'S GOOD NOT ALL THE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS ARE IN ONE PLACE: IT MAKES DAMAGING THEM ALL AT ONE TIME - WITH A DIRT BOMB, FOR EXAMPLE - MUCH TOUGHER FOR THE JIHADISTS.
AND THAT'S WHY THEIR MOVING OUT.
A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt on Thursday evening repeatedly refused to commit to maintaining the peace treaty with Israel, or even recognizing Israel, if the Brotherhood becomes a player in the future governance of Egypt.Very predictable. And we are against calling of incitement to jihad against Israel and the Jews, whom you can be sure they're against as much as Zionism. This is the movement Obama is running the danger of allowing to seize control of Egypt? Simply terrible and depressing.
Asked on CNN if his organization would support the maintenance of the Egyptian-Israeli peace treaty, Mohamed Morsy, a spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, dodged a direct answer but said Israel had failed to honor the treaty. He said it would be up to the Egyptian parliament to decide on the fate of the treaty, and that the parliament would reflect the will of the people.
Asked next if an Egypt with a Muslim Brotherhood component in government would even recognize the state of Israel, Morsy again evaded a direct answer despite being pressed several times. “It’s ridiculous to ask about the future,” he said at one point, and then responded with the question: “Does Israel recognize a Palestinian state?”
He also accused Israel of “shedding the blood of the Palestinians for more than 60 years.”
Morsy added that the Brotherhood “are not against the Jews. We are against Zionism. We are against torturing the Palestinian people.”
Hariri was assassinated on 14 February 2005 when explosives equivalent to around 1000 kg of TNT were detonated as his motorcade drove past the St. George Hotel in the Lebanese capital, Beirut. The investigation, by the Special Tribunal for Lebanon, into his assassination is still ongoing and currently led by the independent investigator Daniel Bellemare.... NOW THESE ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS DICTATE HIS SUCCESSOR'S SUCCESSOR AND CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT OF LEBANON.
In its first two reports, UNIIIC indicated that the Syrian government may be linked to the assassination. According to a Canadian Broadcasting Corporation news investigation, the special UN investigation team had found strong evidence for the responsibility of the Hezbollah in the assassination.
The Muslim Brotherhood's adherents (including Al Qaeda's Ayman Zawahiri) assassinated Egyptian President Anwar Al-Sadat:
On 6 October 1981, the month after the crackdown, Sadat was assassinated during the annual victory parade held in Cairo to celebrate Egypt's crossing of the Suez Canal. A fatwā approving the assassination had been obtained from Omar Abdel-Rahman, a cleric later convicted in the US for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.... NOW THESE ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS WILL DICTATE HIS SUCCESSOR'S SUCCESSOR AND CONTROL THE GOVERNMENT OF EGYPT.
... Over three hundred Islamic radicals were indicted in the trial of assassin Khalid Islambouli, including Ayman al-Zawahiri, Omar Abdel-Rahman and Abd al-Hamid Kishk.
The trial was covered by the international press and Zawahiri's knowledge of English made him the de facto spokesman for the defendants. Zawahiri was released from prison in 1984.
Islamist extremists assassinated the Hashemite King Abdullah of Jordan:
On 20 July 1951, Abdullah, while visiting Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem, was shot dead by "a Palestinian from the Husseini clan."NOW, THE ISLAMIC EXTREMISTS DICTATE DECISIONS TO HIS SUCCESSOR'S SUCCESSOR.
On 16 July, Riad Bey al-Solh, a former Prime Minister of Lebanon, had been assassinated in Amman, where rumors were circulating that Lebanon and Jordan were discussing a joint separate peace with Israel.
The assassin passed through apparently heavy security. Abdullah was in Jerusalem to give a eulogy at the funeral and for a prearranged meeting with Reuven Shiloah and Moshe Sasson.
Abdullah was shot while attending Friday prayers at the Dome of the Rock in the company of his grandson, Prince Hussein. The Palestinian gunman, motivated by fears that the old king would make a separate peace with Israel, fired three fatal bullets into the King's head and chest.
Abdullah's grandson, Prince Hussein, was at his side and was hit too. A medal that had been pinned to Hussein's chest at his grandfather's insistence deflected the bullet and saved his life.
These are the first fruits of Barack Hussein Obama's foreign policy: Islamist assassins taking control of nation states.
Israel is now encircled by islamist anti-Zionist regimes - or regimes under theiur control - which follow the dictates of Sharia and the foreign policies of Iran.
Obama is now loudly proclaiming his Christianity:
Obama gave a testimony about his coming to faith. His family was not religious, but Obama was impressed at the spirituality of the Civil Rights leaders. He then became an organizer for a group of churches in Chicago, and eventually he “came to know Jesus Christ for myself and embrace him as my Lord and Savior.” This was about 20 years ago, and he added that the past two years as President have deepened his faith.
The JTTF that had reviewed the initial [REDACTED] communications dismissed the second JTTF’s work as “slim” but eventually dropped the matter rather than cause a bureaucratic confrontation. The JTTFs now even dispute the extent to which they were in contact with each other in this case. Nonetheless, the JTTFs never raised the dispute to FBI headquarters for resolution, and entities in FBI headquarters responsible for coordination among field offices never acted. As a result, the FBI’s inquiry into Hasan ended prematurely.All this in spite of how he practically acted candid about his standings:
Hasan advanced to a two-year fellowship at USUHS…Less than a month into the fellowship, in August 2007, Hasan gave another off-topic presentation on a violent Islamist extremist subject instead of on a health care subject. This time, Hasan’s presentation was so controversial that the instructor had to stop it after just two minutes when the class erupted in protest to Hasan’s views. The presentation was entitled, Is the War on Terror a War on Islam: An Islamic Perspective? Hasan’s proposal for this presentation promoted this troubling thesis: that U.S. military operations are a war against lslam rather than based on non-religious security considerations. Hasan’s presentation accorded with the narrative of violent Islamist extremism that the West is at war with Islam. Hasan’s paper was full of empathetic and supportive recitation of other violent Islamist extremist views, including defense of Osama bin Laden, slanted historical accounts blaming the United States for problems in the Middle East, and arguments that anger at the United States is justifiable…The instructor who stopped the presentation said that Hasan was sweating, quite nervous, and agitated after being confronted by the class.Yet they allowed him to continue, or even associate themselves with him after that.
Hasan’s promotion of violent Islamist extremist beliefs continued after the presentation. One classmate said that Hasan supported suicide bombings in another class. He told several classmates that his religion took precedence over the U.S. Constitution he swore to support and defend as a U.S. military officer.
One of the officers who reported Hasan to superiors opined that Hasan was permitted to remain in service because of “political correctness” and ignorance of religious practices. That officer added that he believed that concern about potential discrimination complaints stopped some individuals from challenging Hasan. We are concerned that exactly such worries about “political correctness” inhibited Hasan’s superiors and colleagues who were deeply troubled by his behavior from taking the actions against him that could have prevented the attack at Fort Hood.That explains everything perfectly; exactly what damaged America considerably during the Dubya administration. Now that this has happened, however, the challenging question is whether Congress is going to do anything to prevent further tragedies like that from happening.
As I pointed out recently the mass media in America generally presents only one side of the debate nowadays. Then, it publishes nonsense which survives because it is protected from the withering critique it deserves. And even people who should know better are just losing it.He may be right. "Neo-cons" are probably the nadir of the conservative movement, and are going to need a lesson in how to convey their arguments better.
Consider one example (Roger Cohen has gone beyond ridicule so let's focus on someone who should know better). I regret criticizing Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institution as he is one of the smarter, saner people.
Yet the kinds of things he is quoted as saying in the New York Times remind me of why the "neo-conservatives" have been so dangerous because of their naivete about the Middle East. They are fitting counterparts of the apologists for radicals who have demonized them. Both groups are trying to impose their fantasy model on the real Middle East. Of course, if Kagan didn't say things like this he wouldn't be quoted at all in the New York Times.
The wider MSM won't be very likely to let anyone know what Anne Bayefsky says about the UN either; how they abandoned the people in Egypt for 3 decades:
There is one main reason why the Obama administration misjudged Egypt entirely – they cannot get their facts straight. For the last two years they have been busy defending the U.N. as an effective vehicle for promoting U.S. interests, in the name of engagement.There's more at the link, but don't expect Brimmer to ever consider the true image of the UNHRC, or even care to acknowledge it.
But for the three decades of Hosni Mubarak’s reign the U.N. has dedicated its human rights apparatus to demonizing the state of Israel and ignoring the human rights victims in Egypt and across the Arab world. As dissatisfaction and unrest have grown in the region over his presidency, the Obama administration failed to recognize the U.N.’s gross negligence or to take responsibility for ensuring an alternative vehicle to promote democracy. Instead, it legitimized the U.N.’s top human rights body, the Human Rights Council (HRC), by joining it.
Notwithstanding the meltdown in Egypt, Esther Brimmer, Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of International Organization Affairs picked Tuesday to give her evidence for the success of the Obama foreign policy of engagement with the U.N. and its human rights world.
At a speech to the Brookings Institution she said: “Since the United States joined the Human Rights Council, it has not held a single special session on Israel.” Except that the U.S. took its seat on the Council September 14, 2009, and the Council held its sixth special session on Israel on October 15-16, 2009. It was a rather unforgettable session, actually, since it was the occasion the Council endorsed the notorious Goldstone report.
It is a mystery why the person in charge of international organizations in this country has no clue what the actual record is of the Council, but here is a short synopsis for her edification:
There have been twelve country-specific special sessions of the Human Rights Council in its history. Half of them have been directed at Israel alone. Half of all the resolutions and decisions of the Human Rights Council critical of a specific states’ human rights record have been about Israel alone, and half on the rest of the world. There are ten permanent agenda items of the Council which govern all of its business. One of those items is only about condemning Israel and one is about any other “human rights situation that requires the Council’s attention” elsewhere on the planet. Ten countries were once subject to a specific human rights investigation, but the Council discontinued them for the likes of Belarus, Cuba, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guinea, Iran, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Maldives, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

Four people including a Muslim cleric have been arrested in Bangladesh in connection with the death of 14-year-old girl who was publicly lashed.ROPMA. RELIGION OF GENOCIDE, MISOGYNY AND ANTI-MODERNITY.
The teenager was accused of having an affair with a married man, police say, and the punishment was given under Islamic Sharia law.
I think you'll agree that this story in the Washington Post represents the Obama administration in microcosm.RTWT.An Egyptian official says his government believes that White House demands for President Hosni Mubarak to step down immediately are in "clear contradiction" with Obama administration calls for an orderly transition to a new government.
Jordan's powerful Muslim opposition on Wednesday urged the country's newly appointed prime minister to step down, calling him the wrong person to introduce democratic reforms and tackle surging poverty and unemployment.
King Abdullah II named Marouf al-Bakhit on Tuesday as his prime minister-designate, bowing to public pressure from protests inspired by those in Egypt against President Hosni Mubarak.
Hamza Mansour, a leader of the opposition Muslim Brotherhood's political wing, rejected al-Bakhit's nomination, saying he "is not the right person for the job."
"Al-Bakhit is a security man, a former army general and ex-intelligence official. He doesn't believe in democracy," Mansour told The Associated Press. Instead, he said the country needs "a national figure who can tackle Jordan's serious economic and political crisis."
These islamists are liars, hypocrites. SCUM.
Thousands of demonstrators for and against President Hosni Mubarak, some on horses and camels, fought running battles in and around Cairo’s Tahrir Square on Wednesday, despite a call from Egypt’s powerful military for the president’s opponents to “restore normal life.”THE FRUITS OF ISLAM... RELIGION OF ROCK-THROWERS, TYRANNY, MISOGYNY, TERROR AND HEAVENLY VIRGINS FOR GENOCIDAL MURDERERS..
The pro-government supporters had arrived in their thousands, but were outnumbered by Mr. Mubarak’s opponents.
Their confrontations, which were descending into rock-throwing clashes, injected a new and perilous element into the eight-day standoff between anti-government protesters and Mr. Mubarak, hours after he offered to step down in September and President Obama urged a faster transition. The fighting was the first since the antigovernment protesters laid claim to Tahrir Square days ago as they pursued their campaign for Mr. Mubarak’s ouster.
The Bay People group that protested the mosque are to be praised for their bold efforts to stop it.

THE CORE OF THE ARAB STREET STEPS FOWARD IN TUNISIA AND CAIRO: THEY START OPENLY ATTACKING JEWS AND ISRAELIS
BETTER FASTEN YOUR SEAT=BELTS: IT'S GONNA BE A ROCKY ROAD...
“Girls in Muslim families are raped by their uncles, their cousins, or their fathers.”
While one can certainly question the validity of such a statement, or the wisdom of making it, a Frederiksberg court ruled it does not constitute racism or hate speech, at least not in the case of Lars Hedegaard.
#1: King Abdullah of Jordan, a close U.S. ally, Tuesday replaced his prime minister after protests over food prices and poor living conditions, naming a former premier with a military background to head the government.THE KING IS NOT DOING ALL THIS OUT OF THE GOODNESS OF HIS HEART; HE IS CAVING INTO TO THE DEMANDS OF JORDAN'S ISLAMISTS.
#2: Jordan's Royal Palace says the king has sacked his government in the wake of street protests and has asked an ex-army general to form a new Cabinet. King Abdullah's move comes after thousands of Jordanians took to the streets
THIS IS WHAT WILL SOON BE HAPPENING IN EGYPT.
President Obama and Mohamed ElBaradei, then the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, in 2009.
“I could not have thought of any other person that is more deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize than Barack Obama,” Mohamed ElBaradei, then the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in a videotaped statement. He went on to praise Mr. Obama’s commitment “to restore moral decency” to the lives of people around the world.
But this week, Mr. ElBaradei, now a prominent face of the opposition on the streets of Cairo, was sounding a different tune. “The American government cannot ask the Egyptian people to believe that a dictator who has been in power for 30 years will be the one to implement democracy,” Mr. ElBaradei told CBS’s “Face the Nation.” He called the United States’ refusal to openly abandon President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt “a farce.”
Mr. ElBaradei, 68, had a fractious relationship with the Bush administration, one so hostile that Bush officials tried to get him removed from his post at the atomic watchdog agency. But as Egypt’s powerful Muslim Brotherhood and the secular opposition on the streets of Cairo have increasingly coalesced around Mr. ElBaradei to negotiate on their behalf, the Obama administration is scrambling to figure out whether he is someone with whom the United States can deal.
Since the protests in Egypt erupted, Obama administration officials have been trying to reach Mr. ElBaradei, but they had not made contact as of Monday afternoon, a White House official said. “I think that outreach is ongoing,” said Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary.
CBS and CNN can get to el Baradei, but the White House can't!?!?!? Incompetent idjits.
AND ANOTHER THING: El Baradei's coalition with the MB is not new. The White House is obviously NOT UP TO SPEED, and NOT UP TO THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES!
When Unions band together to set the price of labor, it is called negotiation.
But, it is really an collusive attempt to establish a monopoly by the which an entity (in this case, a Union) can set the price of a service (in this case, labor) at an artificially high price,
or, in other words, to fix the price of a service at a rate which is not justified by market demand.
That's how fat cats get fatter, and that's how the "little guy" (all of us who have to pay for the artificially high price of labor) gets screwed.

SHE HAS SLIPPED WAY DOWN THE MORAL RELATIVITY SLIPPERY SLOPE.
"Until about 1964 most comic books in the Middle East were in either English or French.... Then a forward-looking editor began to wonder why comic books could not be translated into Arabic." Illustrated Publications, a Beirut-based company, did just that, starting with Superman. As a reporter for "Al-Kawkab Al Yawmi" he swooped into the Middle east from distant Krypton on February 4, 1964. The mild-mannered report, Clark Kent, became Nabil Fawzi, whose name roughly translated to "Noble Victory". The text of the comics was translated, but the rest of the comic looked an awful lot like the Superman of the United States, except the covers lacked context, Superman's S logo was reversed, and some of the colors were skewed in odd ways.WHY DON'T THEY DO A COMIC BASED ON MOHAMED'S LIFE?
HERE'S HOW THEY COULD DEPICT HIM:
"A group of the Islamic Action Front (IAF) met on Sunday with Prime Minister Samir Rifai and gave him our demands in writing," Zaki Bani Rsheid, member of the IAF's executive council, said.
"These demands include the resignation of the government, the amendment of electoral law and the formation of a national salvation government headed by an elected prime minister."
IAF secretary general Hamzeh Mansur said the meeting was "the beginning of a dialogue" with the government.
"King Abdullah II has got and grasped the people's message. We now hope he will act quickly," he said.
The so-called Arab Street knows something that most Americans don’t–and that the media has thus far missed.Spot on, and there's more at the link. It wouldn't surprise me if they'd given haven to nazi war criminals following WW2. Mubarak has proven himself just as bad as many other dictators in the Islamic world, and he'd fit right in with the awful Saudi monarchy.
For decades, Saudi Arabia has sheltered the most brutal, anti-American and anti-Semitic dictators and strongmen that the Islamic world has to offer. Despite half a dozen successive U.S. administrations’ claims to the contrary the Saudis are not the benign trustworthy American allies they seek to be portrayed as. The rogue’s gallery of criminals that the House of Saud has given sanctuary and protection to should be clear evidence of that.
Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, the former president of Tunisia, is just the latest to take advantage of Saudi hospitality.
Is Obama following the Carter strategy of fomenting unrest, then sitting by as America's enemies take over?
Then we stand by and let America's enemies come to power in the aftermath. See "Clinton on Egypt: 'We're not advocating any specific outcome'."
Just as Carter did in Nicaragua and Iran. Undermining a stable but unpalatable ally COULD be tenable, but not in the absence of any plan or effort to guide the nation towards a superior alternative. So instead of the Shah and Somoza, we got the Stalinist Sandinistas and the Islamofascist Ayatollah. This time we could well get the Muslim Brotherhood (the parent organization of al Qaeda).
Obama already propped up the Islamofascists in Iran
In the wake of Iran's stolen 2009 election, Obama said that the future of Iran had to be decided by Iranians, but he did not say it had to be decided by legitimate election. On the contrary, he called for letting the regime's legal process decide the matter and only asked that the Islamofascists try not to kill too many people in the process of enforcing their election theft:
My understanding is, is that the Iranian government says that they are going to look into irregularities that have taken place. ...Whatever the outcome of the election conflict might be, Obama expressed his determination to proceed with diplomatic engagement (i.e. with friendly concessions). To justify all this passivity, Obama invoked the assumption that the whole world hates America as much as he does. If we took the side of the Iranian people, it would only de-legitimize their cause:
I think it's important that, moving forward, whatever investigations take place are done in a way that is not resulting in bloodshed and is not resulting in people being stifled in expressing their views.
I want to start off by being very clear that it is up to Iranians to make decisions about who Iran’s leaders will be; that we respect Iranian sovereignty and want to avoid the United States being the issue inside of Iran, which sometimes the United States can be a handy political football...Thus obama left the field to the Islamofascists, insuring the failure of the side we should have backed: the Iranian majority.
Now after a public-private consortium of his own minions has helped to undermine the a psuedo-ally in Egypt, Obama seems to be doing the same thing. America will stay out of the aftermath (can't make ourselves the issue!) again leaving the field to the Islamofascists. Unlike Iran in 2009, the Islamofascists are not the challenged regime this time, but are one of the challengers: a small but organized sect, poised to steal the regime change, just as the Nicaraguan communists managed to do with Carter's help/acquiescence in 1979.
Carter's post-presidential career proves he favored the communists all along
Time has revealed Carter's post-presidential career as an elections monitor to have been in pursuit of legitimately elected Communism. I can't find the citation, but I once read a report from someone on the scene in Managua when Sandinista presidential candidate Daniel Ortega was defeated by Violeta Chamorro in the Carter facilitated Nicaraguan election of 1990. Carter reportedly spat a stream of the most bitter vituperation over the Communist defeat. The closest reference I can find is this statement from Steven Hayward that "Carter returned to the U.S. bitterly disappointed that his Sandinista pals had been turned out."
Since then Carter has given up on achieving a legitimate communist electoral victory and has become a shameless backer of communist election stealing. (Ibid.)
If Obama acquiesces in the rise to power of Muslim Brotherhood favorite El Baradei, it will be pretty clear that he is indeed pursuing the Carter strategy for advancing America's enemies.
UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long. Top Obama Middle-East advisor pens op-ed: "Don't fear Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood." Also, "US Ambassador in Cairo Margaret Scobey spoke on the phone today with Mohamed ElBaradei."
Too bad the American people were never apprised of the overwhelming evidence that Obama is actually a Muslim.
The Israeli army on Monday rearrested Hamas lawmaker Mohammed Jamal al-Natsh, five months after he was released from prison, Palestinian security officials said.And the Hamas officials should be kept locked away, because they're hell-bent on Israel's destruction, and it helps in the war on terrorism.
Natsh, 53, was arrested in the West Bank town of Hebron.
He spent eight years in detention, Palestinian officials said, during which time he ran elected for office.
An Israeli military spokeswoman said Natsh was rearrested "because he's a Hamas activist," but did not elaborate.
Israel has in recent months begun rearresting dozens of Palestinian MPs with the Islamist movement Hamas who were first detained in 2006 after Gaza militants seized Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.
Some murmurs of surprise were heard. In theory, after all, Egypt and Israel had been at peace since Camp David. But the man who was about to become prime minister of Israel said that not only was Egypt the most hostile but it was also the most dangerous. It was the most populous Middle East country; it was influential in the Arab world. Egypt had something like 12 divisions in its Army alone, one of the 10 largest air forces in the world, and millions of males of military age. In recent years, it had been armed and trained by America. That worried him. He didn’t belittle the fact that some Egyptians were prepared to gamble on peace. But the gamble had cost President Sadat his life, and the peace had been cold. In the order of battle, the great strategist had his eye on Egypt.But now, almost 6 years after he expelled Jews from their homes, and even came dangerously close to uttering something anti-semitic when he said that there would be no Jews left in Gaza after what he did, I'm afraid Sharon's viewpoint is largely nullified. Especially after the Hamas ultimately took over the Gaza strip, and rockets were fired at Jewish residences, mainly in Ashkelon.
As Egypt is engulfed in flames, we can’t help thinking of Ariel Sharon’s warning. He was prepared to treat with Mr. Mubarak, and did on a number of occasions, but he never had illusions about him. He was well aware of Mr. Mubarak’s machinations against Israel in the United Nations, of his agitation against Israel’s nuclear capacity, of the fact that if Egypt really wanted to stop the arms smuggling into Gaza it would have.
Based on this, I don't think the NY Sun is making much of an impact. Granted, the view of Islamofascism dominating Egypt and why it's dangerous is a very vital argument, but Sharon is no longer someone to look to for the explanations, as he trashed them shortly before he went comatose.
I would recommend Prof. Paul Eidelberg instead, as he spotted the problems too, and unlike Sharon, Eidelberg hasn't betrayed his principles.
The grueling cold has been the talk of the town and it turns out this isn’t just a feeling people get whenever winter comes. In fact, the weather during January was the coldest in nearly five decades, according to the Korea Meteorological Administration (KMA), Monday.

TAB THIS MORNING.
REGULAR READERS KNOW THIS HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. SPREAD THE WORD.
... it will take utterly reforming or eliminating Islam and statism/socialism, too.
WHY IS THIS BASICALLY TRUE:
Prosperity is a by-product of liberty.
Tyranny in all of its forms leads to poverty because it squashes the free market.
People who are free to make and do what they want - and buy what they want, invariably make more and get create ever-improving value for the things people want.
Socialism, crony capitalism and corporatism are functionally just as bad as islamism because they all require a strong central state to inflict their choices upon people who are born free and inherently desirte to creat a life and pursue happiness in individual ways.
IOW: the islamic state and the socialist/liberal fascist state are BIRDS OF A FEATHER.
FACTS ILLUSTRATED HERE - (links to a previous post: "MAPPING GLOBAL POVERTY AND TYRANNY IS MAPPING ISLAM AND SOCIALISM")
I AM SERIOUS.
Man-made climate-change - or anthropogenic climate change, or anthropogenic global warming - is what is driving the world to ruin.
It's driving up the cost of everything including food. This is increasing global unemployment and national and international conflict.
ALL OVER A HOAX.
Oil is nearly TWICE as expensive now as in 2005, even though consumption/demand is only up 9%.
YUP: In 2005 the world consumed 77 billion barrels and in 2009 only 85 billion - but TODAY, the price is nearly twice as high.
SURE: the price isn't any where near the outrageous BUBBLE PRICE of 2008 (a bubble which helped push the USA and world into a horrific recession!).
Nevertheless, the price remains TOO DAMNED HIGH BASED ON DEMAND - especially if you consider that since 2006 BILLIONS MORE barrels of proven reserves have been located. OPEC had at least a 4% increase - and natural gas is in a global glut - we know have at least a 250 year reserve!! And Canadian oil sands and Brazil's off-shore finds have all increased the supply of proven global energy reserves.
One of the MAJOR reasons THE PRICE OF OIL IS TOO DAMN HIGH is ... Al Gore.
Well... er um: not just oil, but ALL ENERGY! And food. YUP: 2 of our most basic needs.
Yup: Gore and his army of alarmists dupes and alarm-exploiters have successfully raised the cost of ALL ENERGY (and also FOOD because crops once reaped for food are now reaped for industrial energy).
Costs for all manufacturing has gone up as a result - and manufactured goods, margins have declined for many, and the cost of living has suffered a double whammy: goods are more expensive and so is food.
Al Gore can stop this INSANITY by admitting AGW was all wrong.
Carbon taxes and other subsidies for so-called "green energy and the so-called green economy would vanish - meaning governments could cut deficits and this would immediately help lower interest rates.
The use of CHEAP COAL could once again be increased, and quickly - thus lowering energy costs for everyone - including all industry.
Food costs will come down for two reasons: more supply of food, and fertilizers (which need a lot of energy to be manufactured) would become cheaper again.
People would immediately feel wealthier as gas prices and food prices decline almost immediately.
This wealth effect would mean they would spend and invest more and this will make the global economy grow - leading to more prosperous and healthy lives for everyone - especially the poor.
And the Third World could abandon fear of industrialization and begin to invest in the power plants and cement factories and asphalt factories - and yes sweat shops - so they can build homes and highways and roads and electrical grid which will lead them as it led us: to better way of life for all their people.
THERE ARE ONLY TWO THINGS PREVENTING AN IMMEDIATE, ROBUST AND SUSTAINABLE GLOBAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY:
AL GORE AND AL QAEDA.
OSAMA WON'T LISTEN TO REASON.
WILL AL GORE?
The Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt's largest opposition group,is in talks with other anti-government figures to form a national unity government without President Hosni Mubarak, a group official told DPA on Sunday. [...]I wonder if Nasser is related to the dictator who dwelled in the 1950s? I did a search to make sure my knowledge was accurate that Gamal Abdel Nasser was the dictator - the second official one - in Egypt from 1956 till his death in 1970. The Brotherhood's spokesperson's name sounds surprisingly similar, so one can only wonder.
Gamal Nasser, a spokesman for the Brotherhood, told DPA that his group was in talks with Mohammed ElBaradei - the former UN nuclear watchdog chief - to form a national unity government without the National Democratic Party of Mubarak.
And seeing all this chaos forming, I feel I have to say: thank you Menachem Begin,* for signing a "peace treaty" with that nazi spy Anwar Sadat in 1979, and ceding the Sinai peninsula. This Expatica article, published just 2 years ago, gives some insight into how the nazis invested in monsters like Sadat during WW2. Because Begin had to be so stupid to even allow someone like Sadat into the country at the time, we ended up losing a defensible border. Now, because of that, not only did Israelis from Yamit lose their homes at the time, but if the Muslim Brotherhood rises, they could set up an army in the Sinai and use it as an attack base.
Begin's grave error is something to learn from, and it's going to be the hard way.
Update: Barry Rubin has written his own commentary about El Baradei.
* Benny Begin, his son, never attended the "anniversaries" held for this now crumbling peace treaty. He seems to understand.
IF MUBARAK HAD LISTENED TO BUSH AND RICE IN 2005 (VIDEO), THEN HIS SON GAMAL MIGHT BE LEADING EL BARADEI IN PRE-ELECTION POLLING RIGHT NOW...
AND HALF THE MEDITERRANEAN AND 5/7TH'S OF THE MIDDLE EAST WOULDN'T BE HEADING TOWARD IRANIAN-STYLE TOTALITARIANISM.
MUST SEE VIDEO OF SECRETARY RICE LECTURING STUDENTS - AND BY EXTENSION MUBARAK AND EVERY OTHER ARAB TYRANT - AT AMERICAN UNIVERSITY OF CAIRO IN 2005 HERE.
1 - SAAD HARIRI WILL BE ASSASSINATED - PERHAPS AS SOON AS A FEW WEEKS
2 - KING HUSSEIN OF JORDAN WILL BE ASSASSINATED - PERHAPS AS SOON AS FEW MONTHS
3 - EL BARADEI WILL BE ASSASSINATED AFTER A FEW MONTHS IN POWER, AND AFTER THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IS FIRMLY ENSCONCED IN THE NEW EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT
4 - MOROCCO'S KING MOHAMED VI WILL BE ASSASSINATED
5 - TURKEY WILL END ALL DIPLOMATIC RELATIONS WITH ISRAEL AND OFFICIALLY RECOGNIZE PALESTINE.
6 - AND IN THE NEXT YEAR - TO APPEASE THE BURGEONING ISLAMIST HEGEMONY OVER NORTH AFRICA AND THE MIDDLE EAST AND THE GULF STATES AND THE SUEZ CANAL - (RATHER THAN CONFRONTING IT), OBAMA WILL ABSTAIN FROM BLOCKING AN AGGRESSIVE ANTI-ISRAEL, BINDING UNSC RESOLUTION , AND ISRAEL IS COMPLETELY ISOLATED...
UNDER BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, ISLAMISM IS ASCENDANT.
SURPRISE, SURPRISE, SURPRISE.
THE FIRST 5 ACTIONS ARE ALL WELL WITHIN THE REACH OF IRAN.
TO IRAN, THEY ARE NOTHING MORE THAN MID-GAME CHESS MOVES - LIKE TAKING A BISHOP OR A KNIGHT.
TOO BAD FOR US, WE DON'T SEEM TO HAVE AS MANY OF IRAN'S PIECES UNDER THREAT AS THEY HAVE OF OURS.
TO SAVE OURSELVES FROM BEING CHECK-MATED BY IRAN AND GLOBAL JIHAD, IT WILL TAKE SOME VERY BOLD MOVES ON OUR PART....
