The Associated Press: A history of collaboration with dictator-murderers (Nazis)

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

Is it any surprise that “Since 2007, the majority of Americans have had little or no trust in the mass media?” We regularly see the Associated Press (AP), media icon and household name, smearing Israel and sanitizing Islamist terror, and recently learned of the AP’s collaboration with North Korea. Now we discover that this is no modern-day phenomena; this is the history of the AP:

The Associated Press news agency entered a formal cooperation with the Hitler regime in the 1930s, supplying American newspapers with material directly produced and selected by the Nazi propaganda ministry, archive material unearthed by a German historian has revealed. …

AP also allowed the Nazi regime to use its photo archives for its virulently antisemitic propaganda literature. Publications illustrated with AP photographs include the bestselling SS brochure “Der Untermensch” (“The Sub-Human”) and the booklet “The Jews in the USA”, which aimed to demonstrate the decadence of Jewish Americans with a picture of New York mayor Fiorello LaGuardia eating from a buffet with his hands. …

AP helped produce Nazi Der Untermensch (The Sub-Human)

It seems that the AP’s most recent best-buddy dictator-murderer is North Korean leader Kim Jong-un:

… In 2014, Washington-based website NK News alleged that top executives at AP had in 2011 “agreed to distribute state-produced North Korean propaganda through the AP name” in order to gain access to the highly profitable market of distributing picture material out of the totalitarian state. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea comes second from bottom in the current World Press Freedom Index.

A leaked draft agreement showed that AP was apparently willing to let the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) handpick one text and one photo journalist from its agitation and propaganda unit to work in its bureau. AP told the Guardian that “it would be presumptuous to assume ‘the draft’ has any significance”, but declined to disclose further information on the final agreement. …

While we find ourselves often ascribing media bias to motives like philosophical or political agendas, it is most likely avarice — cold, hard cash — that motivates this unethical behavior.

The (Ugly, Distorted, Hateful, Violent) Truth About the Palestinians

Friday, March 18th, 2016

The Israeli-American Council (IAC) has produced a polished and concise audio-visual summary of “Palestinian” “history” — about a fabricated, supposed ethnic group with a phony and badly-manufactured history (shown below). Indeed, the Arabs whom the Israelis have been forced to manage don’t even call themselves “Arabs.” The word “Palestinian” refers to peoples of Aegean or Anatolian origins — literally, the biblical Philistines — who invaded Israel and harassed the indigenous Jews. It was the despicable Roman Emperor Hadrian who murdered 600,000 Jews and then “renamed” the Jewish homeland as “Syria Palaestina.” Hadrian sought to permanently punish Jews by renaming their sacred homeland after the traditional enemies of the Jewish people, the Philistines. Sane people know that Jews have CONTINUOUSLY lived in Israel for AT LEAST 3,000 years. You can hardly take a step in Israel without turning over some Jewish archaeological evidence. Arabs, Mohammad’s ruffians, didn’t conquer Israel until the 7th century AD. Most “Palestinians” immigrated to Israel during the 19th and 20th centuries. The UNITED NATIONS mandated the birth of “modern” Israel. Finally, for Pete’s sake — as in Saint Peter — Jesus was a Jew, not a Philistine. He was called Rabbi, Amen, Messiah, Christ, and Mar.

Iran pushes world towards Armageddon; Obama appeases and cowers

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

By Andrew L. Jaffee

Iran’s Islamist mullahs are, to say the least, violent, dangerous, insane, and certainly not trustworthy — as we’ve known for years and as the Iranian regime keeps proving every day. These thugs threaten not only the Middle East but the whole world. President Obama, obsessed with his “legacy,” has nonetheless signed a nuclear agreement with Iran which “commits Tehran to cutting back over more than a decade on nuclear technologies that could be used for weapons-making. In exchange, Iran will have access to about $100 billion in previously frozen assets and fully return to the oil market.” The mullahs have very publicly exclaimed, and most importantly acted, in ways that prove they have absolutely no intention of living up to the terms in Obama’s treaty. They intend to literally profit from this foolish treaty — and they certainly won’t stop pursuing the development of nuclear weapons. Recent events have emphasized that Iran has no intention of abiding by its obligations under Obama’s treaty. Even Democrats who supported the president’s agreement with Iran are “steaming.”

Let’s pause to review just a few of the reasons why any sane leader (i.e., not including President Obama) would refuse to sign a treaty with Iran’s mullahs. On multiple occasions, Iranian leadership has publicly stated its desire to “wipe Israel off the map” (and we know the only way they could try would be with atomic weapons). The mullahs are obsessed with the Islamic concept of the “mahdaviat,” which refers to “the restorer of religion and justice who will rule before the end of the world.” Just over a week ago, U.S. Central Command spokesman Commander Kyle Raines “said in a statement that Iranian Revolutionary Guard naval vessels fired ‘several unguided rockets’ about 1,500 yards from the USS Harry S. Truman aircraft carrier.” In February of last year, Iran held a “large-scale naval and air defense drill” in the Strait of Hormuz which involved blowing up “a replica U.S. aircraft carrier,” an act meant to send “a clear message to [Iran's] ‘extraterritorial enemies’ in Washington.” How many times have we heard Iranian officials making statements like “Jihad Will Continue Until America is No More?” Other Muslim countries are at near-warlike odds with Iran: “American Decline: With the Iran nuclear deal, the U.S. has moved closer to the world’s foremost terror state. Our Arab allies and friends just moved further away.”

Despite all this insanity, the Obama administration is ready to capitulate to Iranian terror, meekly proclaiming today that:

Iran may be “days away” from complying with last summer’s nuclear deal, US secretary of state John Kerry has said, a step that would compel the US and other western nations to immediately suspend many sanctions on the Islamic republic.

We heard perhaps a glimmer of hope today that “The GOP-led House Foreign Affairs Committee on Thursday approved legislation that would give Congress greater oversight of the landmark nuclear deal with Iran,” but will Republicans really follow through?

Are we now in a situation in which the Western World (which includes Israel) will only stop Iran if it does something incredibly evil and on an utterly massive scale? I’ll leave you with several depressing thoughts which at least provide some insight into this foreign relations nightmare…


Tiny little Jew-hating Arab girl: “Stab! Stab! Stab! Stab! Stab!”

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

As Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir once said: “Peace will come when the Arabs will love their children more than they hate us.” But that never happened and probably never will. Look at this horrendous child abuse considered “normal” by “Palestinians” and embraced as “resistance” by left-wing lunatics, documented by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW):

Book Review – Living History: On the Front Lines for Israel and the Jews 2003-2015

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

By Fern Sidman

“From 2003 through the early months of 2015, I wrote more than 200,000 words about anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism,” says Prof. Phyllis Chesler in the introduction of her recently released book, Living History: On the Front Lines for Israel and the Jews 2003-2015 (Gefen Publishers).

This admission should come as no surprise to anyone even tangentially familiar with the voluminous amount of essays and articles that Dr. Chesler has written on the subject over the last 13 years, donning an impressive variety of hats. As an astute political analyst, researcher and investigative journalist, she has honed these skills in her quest to offer her reader a meticulous examination of a panoply of hot button geo-political issues pertaining to Israel and the Jewish people.

In this anthology-style compendium that contains the corpus of her work in non-redacted form, Chesler prodigiously confronts the seemingly eternal scourge of global anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism, the pernicious nature of radical Islam, the proliferation of visceral Jew hatred and incessant Israel bashing on university campuses, the exposure of the most egregious forms of propaganda in films and books, the truth about the nefarious agenda of multicultural relativism, and critiques the role of the Left-liberal media in creating the “perfect storm.”


Obama: The President of War

Tuesday, March 31st, 2015

by Gary Gerofsky

Obama was elected – twice – as a left-wing, Democratic and progressive President promising less involvement in world conflicts, more dialogue with enemies, and fewer American troops deployed. Obama says that he wants a diminished emphasis on American strength. These “progressive” tactics were supposed to make the world more peaceful. The absence of American involvement is now creating a vacuum that is being filled by dictators. In reality, what has resulted is a much more dangerous world at war. The President was supposed to mollify and reassure with his non-interventionist policies and actions but it has been a dismal failure.

What concerns me most is his inability to admit failure. Instead, he steps on the accelerator even after losing Congressional elections. His tactics are fueling more war and potential nuclear conflagration. He and his administration seem to have a willful blindness and complete misunderstanding of the differences between various countries and the ideologies that drive them.

The Obama administration has taken the concept of equality and stretched and distorted it into a belief that the worst state and non-state actors behave just like America. The administration has complete confidence in its own failed strategies despite proof that they are leading the world into more death and danger.


SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Address a Joint Meeting of Congress

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

SUPPORT ISRAEL: Watch Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu address a joint meeting of Congress. An extremist Islamist Iran’s going nuclear — and its proxies are causing mayhem in the Middle East. President Obama is doing nothing to stop this madness. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is doing something — and has the guts and morality to warn the American people of the danger Iran presents to the world — unlike an impotent Obama. Watch now:

Note that:

Despite months of relentless attacks coming from President Obama, his White House, and his sycophants in the mainstream media, here in America Benjamin Netanyahu has seen a boost in his favorability rating to where the Israeli Prime Minister is now in much better shape than our own President.

According to the latest Gallup poll, 45% of Americans view Netanyahu favorably while only 24% view him unfavorably. Since 2012, Netanyahu’s favorability rating has jumped a full 10 points, while his unfavorable rating has risen an insignificant 1%.

The latest favorability ratings for Obama come from a Feb 23 Economist/YouGov poll that shows Obama tied with Netanyahu in favorability with 45%, but with an unfavorable rating of more than double that of Netanyahu’s at 50%. This is a poll of 1000 adults. Gallup polled 837 adults.

As far as job approval, according to the most recent Gallup poll Obama sits at 44% approve, 51% disapprove. …

Passover Guide for the Perplexed 2014

Saturday, April 12th, 2014

By Yoram Ettinger, The Ettinger Report

1. The Passover legacy constitutes the foundation of Judaism, and is therefore included in most Jewish blessings (“in memory of the Exodus”). Passover symbolizes the rejuvenation of nature and mankind, spiritually and physically, individually and collectively/nationally. Passover stipulates that human rejuvenation – just like the rejuvenation of nature – must be driven by memory/history/roots. Therefore, parents are instructed to educate their children about the lessons of Passover. Passover was an early – and much more successful – edition of the (19th century) Spring of Nations. It is celebrated in the spring, the bud of nature. The biblical scroll of Song of Songs, which highlights spring, is read during Passover. Spring, Aviv in Hebrew (אביב) consists of two Hebrew words: Father – אב – of 12 – יב – months/tribes. Spring is mentioned 3 times in the Torah, all in reference to the Exodus. Passover – which commemorates the creation of the Jewish nation – lasts seven days, just like the creation of the universe.


I saw the future — anti-Semitism — at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada

Friday, March 28th, 2014

By Gary Gerofsky

In a gymnasium on the campus of McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, which is used for sports, concerts and normally happy and festive events of student life, I saw the future. It was in the form of a Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) vote that passed overwhelmingly. The vote passed but will not take effect at this time because they did not get quorum (they needed over 600 students but they had a little over 400). I am told that the pending vote will be passed along to senate where its fate will be in the hands of that body. Regardless, one day soon, as on hundreds of campuses throughout the land, these and similar anti-civilization votes are or will be taking place. They are attended by hundreds of students, a good portion dressed in Islamic attire; some older students who do not appear to be students at all, angrier and more determined than your average Canadian student. Also in attendance are many Muslims and other supporters who are often bussed in by various religious and other groups, churches, unions, etc.


Op-Ed: Anti-Semitism, Old and New

Tuesday, March 25th, 2014

by Phyllis Chesler

And so, twelve years after I started writing my now out-of-print book, “The New Anti-Semitism: The Current Crisis and What We Must Do About It“; eleven years after I published it in 2003, I am counted as one of the experts on the subject.

My words are joined by those of Irwin Cotler, Hasia Diner, Michel Gurfinkiel, David Mamet, Cynthia Ozick, Alvin Rosenfeld, Charles Small, who are grappling with the question of “Anti-Semitism. Where Does It Come From and Why Does it Persist? What are its New Forms? Will It Ever Go Away?”

Our answers vary. Jews have always been “outsiders and enemies;” Judaism has been viewed as an “antiquated” or as a “corrupting” religion. Anti-Semitism is a way of “externalizing evil,” explaining “economic patterns,” provides a “convenient scapegoat,” is “misdiagnosed in America,” is “complex and contentious,” is a “politically correct disease, “an example of “Holocaust inversion,” of “state-sanctioned hatred,” is due to “Radical political Islam,” and remains “an omnipresent threat.”


Israel’s Enhanced Global Integration

Saturday, March 22nd, 2014

By Yoram Ettinger, Straight from the Jerusalem Boardroom #192, March 21, 2014

1. The Daily Telegraph, March 12, 2014: “Bilateral UK-Israel trade is booming to an extent never before imagined. Last year it was estimated by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) at 5.1 billion British Pounds. … Prime Minister Cameron’s meetings in Israel are primarily about business, not the Kerry Plan. Look at who is on the plane with him: the Trade Minister, the CEO of the London Stock Exchange, the UK Chief Technology Officer, the Chief Technology Officer of Talk Talk, the Europe CEO of Balfour Beatty, the Chairman of Princess Production, the President of GSK’s Pharmaceuticals R&D, the Chairman of Arup UK Division, the ASOS’ Strategy Director, the founder of Kiwi Power, the Chairman of MyOptique, CEO of Tura, the CEO of Tech City. … [Israel expands] free trade agreements with the European Union, the US, the European Free Trade Association, Turkey. Mexico, Canada, Jordan and Egypt. … [According to the] FCO, ‘Israeli innovations give British companies a global competitive edge.’”


Shifting Mideast Sands Reveal New Alliances

Friday, March 21st, 2014

by Jonathan Spyer*

A number of events in recent weeks cast light on the current intersecting lines of conflict in the Middle East. They reflect a region in flux, in which new bonds are being formed, and old ones torn asunder.

But amid the confusion, a new topography is emerging.

This was the month in which a long-existent split in the Sunni Arab world turned into a gaping fissure. On March 5th, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates announced that they were withdrawing their ambassadors from the Emirate of Qatar.


Iran’s Nuclear Buildup and American Irrelevance

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

by Daniel Pipes*

The Menendez-Kirk “Nuclear Weapon Free Iran Act of 2013” (S. 1881) threatens the Iranian regime with additional sanctions and appears to be the only way to counter the Obama administration’s flaccidity vis-à-vis Tehran.

I am skeptical, however, that it can do much good.


Lower education?

Sunday, February 23rd, 2014

by Daniel Doron*

A top-notch higher education system that promotes critical thinking is a must for an advanced economy and society. It is a prerequisite for advanced scientific research and technological expertise, both of which are crucial for economic growth. But what is a good university? What kind of education should it offer and at what cost?

“Will Dropouts Save America?,” asked Michael Ellsberg in a 2011 piece published by The New York Times, a paper that reveres universities and is considered the flagship publication of the American liberal Left.


The Two-State Delusion

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

by Mordechai Nisan*

Two decades after the signing of the declaration of principles (DOP) by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) on the White House lawn, there is something unreasonable in the world’s continued adherence to the Oslo paradigm, tattered and battered as it is by years of a bloody fiasco. The Palestinian Arab leadership has consistently and adamantly rejected the two-state solution since its first articulation in 1937 by the British Peel commission[1] and has, as consistently, advocated the destruction of the Jewish state. Still, it undertook a successful public relations campaign in the 1980s promoting the notion of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip—”the occupied territories.”
