Mr President, Who are We at War With?
"We are not at war with Islam, we
are at war with those who have perverted Islam," said President Obama at a recent summit on combating violent extremists.
He also defended his decision not to call the war against ISIS as a religious one.
White House officials downplayed calls to
focus on Islamist terrorism in a three-day summit aimed at preventing violent
extremism, insisting that recent attacks should not lead to stereotyping of
certain communities as higher risk.
...the administration is adamant that
delegates should also discuss lessons from other conflicts, such as the fight
against Farc in Colombia and attacks by Christians on Sikh or
Jewish targets, and rejects criticism it is being overly politically correct in
taking such a broad approach.
Obama and his aides say they're wary of
elevating the terrorists who committed attacks in Paris and Copenhagen into religious warriors, even if those
culprits were acting in the name of Islam. And officials worry Muslim
communities - most of which reject extremist ideology (When and How? The
“Silent Majority” is still suspiciously silent!) - could be further ostracized if the government focuses on
radical cells. (Security of
the US is being compromised due for the fear
to offend or ostracize a terrorist propagating community? It is an interesting
concept - leading to self-destruction!)
Watch: Obama the Best Friend of Enemies
Why does Only
Israel Need these Weapons?
1) Normally, an advanced new weapon system with a battle-proven success
rate of 90 percent would have global defense
procurement agencies on the phone in minutes. But Israel's Iron Dome rocket interceptor is yet to prove a
hit with buyers abroad. 2) Hamas has twice dispatched “frogman terrorists” to
try to attack Israel. The attempts were foiled, but they brought out the fact that with
hundreds of kilometers of shoreline to patrol,
catching maritime infiltrators is a major challenge for Israel. DSIT technology is using sound propagation to
detect objects underwater. (Most country
would not put up with a terror threat on their doorstep. They’d attack and get
rid of the terrorists. Only Israel is not allowed to remove such a cancer, because
the world would prefer Israel disappear.)
Food for Thought by Steven Shamrak
The best option for ISIS to survive
sustainable attacks from the coalition is to move to the East and wage a Holy
war against its mortal enemy, the Iranian Shia government controlled by Ayatollahs. There will be no international objection!
Obama Uses Israel in the US-Iranian Nuclear Deal Spin
Accusing Binyamin Netanyahu of leaking “sensitive” information on US nuclear negotiations with Iran skews the fact of an almost done deal
between US President Barack Obama and Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani.
It wants only Iran’s paramount leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s endorsement. In attempting to bring him round,
Washington is using media spin tactics which Netanyahu’s opponents have seized
on to accuse him of sabotaging relations with Washington. Netanyahu is not
alone in objecting to Obama’s Iran policy. So too do the Saudis, some Gulf
emirates and Egypt.
Compensation to Israel-haters
Israel will not pay compensation to the family of
anti-Israel ISM activist Rachel Corrie, who was
crushed by an IDF bulldozer in 2003 in Gaza. The court noted that Corrie,
who was 23 years old, was fully aware that she was in danger and that she could
have prevented her own death by moving out of the path of the bulldozer. (Finally, the Israeli legal system got it right!)
The US and Iran are in a last-ditch effort to rescue
their nuclear diplomacy before it falls into deep crisis. Some observers say
the talks are beyond saving. The Obama administration may have hit the limit of
its concessions; and Iran won’t give way on centrifuges and
enriched uranium stocks.
Hamas Destroys Houses - Silence!
Ibrahim Alaimoa, one of the homeowners,
denounced Hamas for bulldozing his modest home without warning, and he was
unable take out any furniture and clothing for him and his family. Hamas
claimed that the houses were built without a permit on government property. (No reports by ‘Israel-friendly’
correspondents, no condemnation by the ‘Useless Nothing’ or NGOs, the White
House is also quiet!)
Is Obama an anti-Jewish Bigot?
criticism of President Barack Obama’s proposed authorization of force against ISIS mostly has to do with the use of US troops and limits on the
commander-in-chief. But the President’s proposed resolution specifically
singles out several ethnic groups threatened by ISIS: Iraqi Christians, Yezidis and Turkmens, but
says nothing about Jews.
Vote the Self-hating Left Out?
coming March 17 elections are a struggle for survival for Meretz.
The radical leftist party, which in roughly thirty years has injected its
concept of a two-state solution into mainstream Israeli political discourse
from the extreme left fringe it started as, is apparently afraid that it may
disappear in the coming elections.
Iran Stalling, but Obama Optimistic!
Iran still stalling atomic probe as deal deadline looms. Tehran continues to withhold full cooperation in 2 areas of
investigation that it was supposed to have given by August last year. "Iran has not provided any explanations that enable the
agency to clarify the outstanding practical measures," the IAEA said,
referring to allegations of explosives tests and other activity that could be
used to develop nuclear bombs.
Crucial Ally in Fight Against Boko
Nigerian government spokesman said “Israel has been a crucial and loyal ally in our fight against
Boko Haram. It is a sad reality that Israel has a great deal of experience confronting
terrorism.” Mike Omeri, the chief coordinating
spokesman of the National Information Center, based in Abuja said. “Our Israeli partners have used that
experience, and the unique expertise gained over years of fighting terror
within its own borders, to assist us.”
'Useless Nothing' Blackmail by Violence
UN warned last week violence could once break out once again between Israel and Hamas unless donor countries fulfilled the
monetary pledges to help rebuild Gaza. Some $5.4 billion was pledged for the Palestinians
at a Cairo conference in October, about half of which was
earmarked for Gaza, but mostly not delivered.
Quote of the Week:
“…the American people to be deeply concerned
when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or
randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris. We devote enormous resources to that, and
it is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to
deal with that - the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down
if he wants that city to thrive." - President

Why Israel is the World Best Nation
by Giulio Meotti
I don’t know another nation on earth where guests on
official visits utter disrespectful and offensive words. But I also don’t know
another nation on earth which has recorded so many miracles. Imagine a helpless,
naked Jew at the gas ovens facing a Nazi official, who thinks he will get rid
of the “Jewish cancer” - get rid of this unique phenomenon of 2,000 years.
Could that helpless, naked Jew imagine that in 50
years other Jews will be flying F-16’s in the skies over Israel? Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel’s population today would be nine times that of 1948,
the year of the state’s creation? Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is much happier than all the European countries?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has the highest production of scientific
publications per capita in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel has the highest worldwide publication of new books?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the only nation which began the XXI century with
a net gain in the number of trees? Could that helpless Jew
imagine that Israel has (the city) with largest number
of chess grandmasters per capita of any city in the world? Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation whose academics produce more
scientific papers per capita than anywhere else in the world?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the highest ratio of university
degrees to the population in the world? Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country which, in proportion to its
population, with the largest number of startup companies in the world? Could
that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the country with the highest percentage in the
world of home computers per capita?
Could that helpless Jew imagine that Israel is the nation with the largest immigrant-absorbing
model on earth? Unfortunately, you will not find Israel’s goodness and superiority in the media (also
Israeli), because it doesn’t fit in with the stereotype of the colonialist
Zionist occupier. In the world’s consciousness, the word “Israel” must be equated with fear.
Israel just came out of another war against terrorists
whose value is less than that of animals. Do you know of any animal species
sheltering behind its own children?
But the Jewish State, despite its media, its cynical
politicians, establishment, once again showed the world it is the best humanity
has to offer.
This hope is impressed in the faces of Israel’s fallen soldiers, its
wounded an injured soldiers. In those faces there is joy de vivre, not sadness
Terrorists and their Western appeasers want to
destroy Israel because it is a light unto the nations. The only one
in the world in which we live!
