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):

“This is the story of a young and naive Jewish American woman who meant to rebel against tradition — but who found herself trapped in the past, stuck in the Middle Ages, without a passport back,” declared the redoubtable Dr. Phyllis Chesler to the mesmerized audience before her at the 92nd Street Y in New York City on Tuesday evening, October 1. The occasion was the debut of Dr. Chesler’s 15th book entitled, “An American Bride in Kabul” (Palgrave MacMillan).
Dr. Phyllis Chesler speaks with audience members at the 92nd Street Y and signs copies of her new book, “An American Bride in Kabul.”
As part of the vanguard of the second wave feminist movement, Dr. Chesler is an emerita professor of psychology and women’s studies at CUNY, psychotherapist and most notably an internationally renowned author and lecturer. Among her best selling books are “Women and Madness” (1972), “Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman” (2001), “The New Anti-Semitism” (2003) and “The Death of Feminism” (2005).

As recently as 2012, it appeared that Islamists could overcome their many internal dissimilarities – sectarian (Sunni, Shi’ite), political (monarchical, republican), tactical (political, violent), or attitudes toward modernity (Salafi, Muslim Brotherhood) – and cooperate. In Tunisia, for example, Salafis and the Muslim Brotherhood (MB) types found common ground. Differences between all these groups were real but secondary, as I put it then, because “all Islamists pull in the same direction, toward the full and severe application of Islamic law (the Shari’a).”

I read an article by Barry Rubin regarding American politics vis-a-vis “The Arab Spring” entitled, “At last, The Secret of President Barack Obama’s Middle East Policy Revealed, No Kidding.” It is profoundly disturbing because it points out (in the diplomatic-speak of US officials) that the foreign policy of the US is now built on appeasement and a quid pro quo arrangement that trades moral and material support to the Muslim Brotherhood and, ultimately, Al Qaeda, Iran and all other terror entities, for protection against violent jihad by terrorists.
The US mainland will be safe (the new unwritten doctrine suggests) provided bribes are paid to Islamists and leftists in whatever form the Islamists and leftists demand (and the demands grow and change to suit their evolving politics). Forced respect for “the religion of peace” (a popular misnomer for Islam) and subversion of free speech and truth are high demands now being quietly exacted by an Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC)-controlled UN with their European sycophants looking for Obama backing. The US and Europe are willing to trade Israel’s security to make Europe and the Obama administration feel righteous.
The war in Afghanistan may be winding down. But the Pentagon’s chief of irregular warfare still sees a war against al-Qaida that will last decades, all over the world — a prospect that prompted astonishment and constitutional debate in the Senate. …
Two Islamist brothers terrorized Boston for days in April. Just a few days ago Fazliddin Kurbanov was charged in Boise, Idaho with “conspiracy to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization and conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists,” according to the Idaho Statesman. The FBI itself said that:
… The Idaho indictment alleges in count one that between August 2012 and May 2013, Kurbanov knowingly conspired with unnamed co-conspirators to provide material support and resources to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, a designated foreign terrorist organization. The indictment alleges that the material support and resources included himself, computer software and money.
In count two, the indictment further alleges that the defendant conspired to provide material support and resources, including himself, to terrorists knowing that the material support was to be used in preparation for and in carrying out an offense involving the use of a weapon of mass destruction. …

American Middle East analysts often claim that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood is a moderate organization, nothing like the more radical Salafis. If true, what do we make of the fact that the most intolerant, anti-American, hate-filled Salafis and jihadis also happen to be the greatest and staunchest supporters of Morsi? Doesn’t such unequivocal support indicate shared ideologies and goals?
Consider: A few weeks ago, while discussing the ongoing protests against Egypt’s President Muhammad Morsi—himself a leader of the Brotherhood—Sheikh Abdullah Badr, an Al Azhar trained scholar and professor of Islamic exegesis, made the following assertion on live TV:

A mass exodus of Christians is currently underway. Millions of Christians are being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.
We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world—much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian—came into being.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently said: “The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.” In our lifetime alone “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”
Ongoing reports from the Islamic world certainly support this conclusion. Iraq was the earliest indicator of the fate awaiting Christians once Islamic forces are liberated from the grip of dictators.
