The 2014 Six-Year-Itch Election

Friday, August 23rd, 2013

by Yoram Ettinger, “Israel Hayom”

President Obama’s maneuverability, domestically and internationally, will depend on the outcome of the very critical November, 2014 six-year-itch election campaign, which is already underway.

The outcome of Obama’s second midterm election — which clipped the wings of many second term presidents — will determine his capability to become a transformational president. It will either coalesce House and Senate Democrats around him, or will doom him to a lame duck presidency, transferring top Senate leadership positions and all committee and subcommittee chairmanships to the GOP.

Obama’s Foreign Fiasco

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

by Daniel Pipes*

It’s a privilege to be an American who works on foreign policy, as I have done since the late 1970s, participating in a small way in the grand project of finding my country’s place in the world. But now, under Barack Obama, decisions made in Washington have dramatically shrunk in importance. It’s unsettling and dismaying. And no longer a privilege.

Whether during the structured Cold War or the chaotic two decades that followed, America’s economic size, technological edge, military prowess, and basic decency meant that even in its inactivity, the U.S. government counted as much or more in world developments than any other state. Sniffles in Washington translated into influenza elsewhere.

A Terror Leader Behind Bars in Egypt

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

The supreme leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, the head of the Islamist snake, Muhammad Badie—who had slipped security forces by traveling in and out of the Brotherhood torture camps (known as “peaceful sits ins” by the mainstream media”)—has finally been arrested in Egypt and is awaiting trial. Not only was he the leader of the Brotherhood, but, according to Brotherhood members themselves, he was giving orders to his underling, Muhammad Morsi, the now ousted Egyptian president.

Obama’s foreign policy advances the interests of Islamists and leftists and subverts freedom

Monday, August 19th, 2013

By Gary Gerofsky

Without freedom there can be no democracy. Without the US supporting freedom, democracy is endangered. With the US supporting make-believe democracy without freedom, there can be no real democracy with freedom. With the US working against freedom, there can be no US. With the US supporting Islamism (masked as a “religion of peace”), terrorism and war will flourish.

The US has had a mixed record of working to weaken or undermine states, individuals and groups that were harmful to its self-interests. US policy has generally been focused on its own interests, regardless of the merit of those interests. Now, with US President Obama’s new appeasement foreign policy, it could be argued that its policy is not geared towards its own self-interests but rather the interests of Islamists and leftists who are pushing hard to advance Obama’s vision of an Islamist crescent surrounding a shrunken or perhaps non-existent State of Israel. We must ask ourselves a very serious question: Why is Obama acting to destroy Israel, backing Islamists, and strengthening terrorists? How does this help American interests? Why are the American people not reacting to what amounts to the hijacking of US foreign policy to help the ideology of terrorists who were quite eager to attack America on 9/11 and to damage the US at every other opportunity before and after 9/11?

Behind Benghazi: Muslim Brotherhood and Obama Administration

Monday, August 19th, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

Evidence that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood was directly involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where Americans including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens were killed, continues to mount.

First, on June 26, 2013, I produced and partially translated what purported to be an internal Libyan governmental memo which was leaked and picked up by many Arabic websites. According to this document, the Muslim Brotherhood, including now ousted President Morsi, played a direct role in the Benghazi consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene,” asserted the report, six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested. During interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members:

Dial Three for Arabic for Public Assistance in Michigan, USA

Thursday, August 15th, 2013

by Phyllis Chesler

“Give me your tired and your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”

These immortal words were written by a Jewish-American woman, Emma Lazarus, whose roots are Sephardic; her words are inscribed on the American Statue of Liberty and have welcomed countless immigrants as they arrived at these shores in flight from persecution and in search of a better life. Most were poor, illiterate, traumatized, and could speak no English. The impoverished needed to pass a medical exam and were sent back if they failed it. They also needed someone to vouch for them in terms of housing or employment. Thereafter, if they worked hard (six or even seven days a week for subsistence wages), they could and did become American citizens. Their children would receive an American education—more priceless than the gold that were said to pave the streets.

If you care about gun rights, you must act on Heller

Wednesday, August 14th, 2013

If you are a gun rights supporter and already know about the court case of the District of Columbia v. Heller, then go to this link and take “ACTION: Urge your Senators to oppose the anti-gun ‘nuclear option’ to blow up the Senate rules. Tell them that any vote in favor of weakening the filibuster rules for judicial confirmations will ultimately result in a reversal of the Heller case and [be] a body-blow to the Second Amendment.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the Heller case, read on. From the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) in 2008:

Is Muslim Brotherhood working together with Amb. Chris Stevens’ assassin?

Ahmed Moussa, a prominent Egyptian television personality on the Tahrir TV channel as well as a former officer in Egyptian State Security Intelligence (SSI), went public on July 30 with a remarkable piece of information.

Challenge your House rep to honestly answer “5 Immigration Questions”

Monday, August 12th, 2013

The mere thought of granting amnesty to 11 – 20 million illegal immigrants should frighten any common sense American citizen. Amnesty means that wannabe tyrants like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Michael Bloomberg, and Barack Obama will achieve their “dream of a permanent Democratic majority” in the U.S. The entire political, cultural, social, and economic landscape created by our Founding Fathers will be destroyed by amnesty. Concerned citizens must engage in the democratic process to stop the current immigration “reform” madness. Since the Senate has passed a massive, contorted amnesty bill, it’s up to the House to stop this crazy train. Shown below are five questions you must challenge your House rep to answer honestly. Please read these questions and answers provided by the The Heritage Foundation, and then CONTACT YOUR HOUSE MEMBER NOW (everything you need for contacting your House member and getting involved in fighting amnesty is included in this link):

Four Levels of Immorality Within the Illegal Immigration Business

Monday, August 12th, 2013

By David North, CIS.org

The grim story of some illegal aliens being forced out of a ship onto a booby-trapped desert island reminded me that there are different levels of immoral conduct in the illegal alien business — I will get back to the island later.

Everyone involved in illegal immigration is, of course, playing a harmful role to the host society, but some of the players are even more unattractive than others. And some classes of players are much more numerous than others.

Israel’s Bad Neighborhood

Saturday, August 10th, 2013

by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger, “Second Thought: a US-Israel Initiative,” “Israel Hayom”

While the Middle East combusts, threatening vital US interests, the US attempts to clip the wings of Israel — the only reliable, predictable, stable, effective, democratic and unabashedly pro-US firefighter in the region.

Western policy-makers and public opinion molders welcomed the 2011 riots on the Arab Street as an Arab Spring, a people’s revolution and a transition toward democracy. However, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Yemen and Syria have demonstrated that the Arab Street is experiencing an Arab Tsunami and a transition towards intensified chaos, totally unrelated to the Palestinian issue, which has been a regional sideshow. In fact, Alexei Pushkov, Chairman of the International Committee in Russia’s Duma, stated on July 4, 2013: “the ongoing events in Egypt confirm that the so-called Arab Spring has led not to democratic renewal but to chaos… We can see this in Egypt, in Libya, in Syria, and in Iraq… The events in Egypt show that there can’t be a quick and gentle transition from an authoritarian regime to political democracy. There can’t be such a transition in the Arab Middle East countries…”

Obama, McCain and Graham make a ‘huge mistake’ in Egypt

Friday, August 9th, 2013

by Raymond Stock*

On their current trip to Cairo, Senators John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), two of President Barack Obama’s most persistent critics on everything in foreign policy from Syria to Benghazi, have found common cause with him at last.

All three fear that the anti-American (and generally anti-human) Muslim Brotherhood (MB), whom they mistakenly see as “moderate,” will disappear from the halls of power in Egypt, our most important Arab ally. They also evidently worry that the MB’s leading figures, such as now-deposed (and arrested) President Mohamed Morsi—who had awarded himself powers greater than any previous ruler in Egypt’s history—will not be free to plot a return to power in an ancient nation that he had nearly destroyed in only one year.

The Return of Al Qaeda and Jihad

Thursday, August 8th, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

With the ousting of Muhammad Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, al-Qaeda has been vindicated and the terror-jihad exonerated, in the opinion of many Islamists, that is.

According to the Associated Press, in a new video, al-Qaeda leader Ayman Zawahiri “said the military coup that ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi provides proof that Islamic rule cannot be established through democracy and urged the Islamist leader’s followers to abandon the ballot box in favor of armed resistance [i.e., jihad].”
