Islamic terrorist incidents in the U.S. and Obama says we’re “safe”

Saturday, January 9th, 2016

By Andrew L. Jaffee

President Obama’s claim that the “U.S. is safe from a Paris-style attack from ISIS and that American law enforcement is well equipped to protect the nation” is foolish, obviously inaccurate, and downright misleading. Obama “repeatedly claims we’re safer than ever.” It seems unlikely that Americans are buying Obama’s obfuscations. Just today, a man was charged with attempting to kill a Philadelphia police officer “in the name of Islam.” The Islamic terrorist suspect, shown in the video below taken Friday, “had pledged his allegiance to ISIS.” Also today, we learned of the “arrest of two Iraq-born refugees on terror-related charges” which has rightfully “recharged Capitol Hill calls for the Obama administration to pull back on plans to welcome thousands more refugees from Middle East warzones.”

Even unabashed supporters of the president — like CNN — are reporting the obvious regarding his false assurances:

… [Obama's] comments came amid reports that the FBI is investigating ISIS sympathizers across the nation and a new study shows support for the terrorist group has reached unprecedented levels domestically. …

“A man ambushed a Philadelphia police officer, pumping bullets at point blank range.”

After being attacked by an Islamist thug yesterday, a badly wounded Philadelphia police officer, Jesse Hartnett, bravely took care of the terrorist. He should be commended for his courage. Note that Hartnett fought back with a gun. Note that “Officials also say the gun used in the crime, a 9mm Glock 17, had been stolen from a police officer’s home in 2013…,” reminding us that President Obama’s unconstitutional executive orders regarding “gun control” would have done nothing to stop the Philadelphia perpetrator. All of the president’s “gun control” efforts, and the efforts of his “gun control” allies, will solely make it harder for law-abiding citizens to purchase firearms.

Today’s events serve as a stark reminder to all citizens who cherish freedom: Our liberties are being attacked from within our borders and from without. We’re not “safe” from Islamic terrorism, contrary to President Obama’s meaningless assurances. To literally add insult to injury, the president is attacking our ability to protect ourselves, to protect our loved ones, and to protect this nation.

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):


Tuesday, December 8th, 2015


The female San Bernardino shooter pledged support to ISIS, [1] the Islamist terrorist group’s de facto capital IS IN Raqqa, Syria, [2] and the female “San Bernardino Shooter Passed [a] DHS Counterterrorism Background Check.” [3] “FBI director James Comey testified for the second time this year before Congress that the Administration was flatly unable to screen Syrian refugees.” [4] Syria is in absolute chaos, filled with terrorists from ISIS, [2], Hezbollah, Al Qaeda, Iran, the Assad regime, etc. [5] “Syria is at the nexus of some of the Middle East’s most central problems, meaning that fallout from its uprising is likely to ripple, in unpredictable ways…” [5] ISIS may have “scores of ‘trained soldiers’ positioned in 15 [American] states.” [6] ISIS successfully attacked Paris. Why wouldn’t any of the many America-hating groups in Syria use “refugee resettlement” to infiltrate the U.S.?


NRO: “discarding the Bill of Rights is part of the Obama administration’s mission statement”

Saturday, December 5th, 2015

In the wake of the savage Islamist-inspired San Bernardino attack, in which two Muslim terrorists murdered 14 innocent U.S. citizens and injured 23, Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s “greatest fear is — not terrorism — but a nonexistent Islamophobic backlash,” according to the National Review Online’s David French. He aptly notes that “Lynch has offered an almost Onion-level self-parody of liberal pieties” and reminds us common non-elist folk that, “Per Obama administration protocol, the attorney general was determined to never let a crisis go to waste. There is now a ‘wonderful opportunity and wonderful moment to really make significant change,’ Lynch declared…” In other words, are Obama et al — in their ineptitude, cowardice, and appeasement of Muslim terror — willing to silence or punish, even arrest, people who speak candidly about issues like terrorism? Why didn’t Lynch emphasize sympathy for the victims and express outrage over Islamist-inspired terror?

Obama and friends are sympathetic to what they see as the “historical” and current “persecution” of Muslims world-wide — even though many Muslims historically and are currently (and mostly) persecuting each other and those they deem as infidels. The President and his followers also suffer from the fallacious belief that if they appease Muslim extremists, they’ll be spared the wrath of Islamist terrorism. The truth is that Islamists disdain those who appease them and consider appeasers weak.

As French correctly notes:

… discarding the Bill of Rights is part of the Obama administration’s mission statement. The First Amendment takes a back seat to the administration’s desire to build a national “safe space” for Muslims. The Second Amendment should be tossed aside (without due process, no less) if a person’s name appears on a bloated bureaucratic watch list — a list so over-inclusive that it has included such nefarious characters as The Weekly Standard’s Stephen Hayes and the late senator Ted Kennedy. …

Remember that Obama belittles us little people as folks who “get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations,” when he is possibly one of the most divisive presidents in American history.

French warns us that:

… The First Amendment protects an enormous range of speech — even speech that’s anathema to the Obama administration. Americans are perfectly within their rights to not just condemn jihad but also to make sweeping and angry statements about Islam. If the administration disagrees with this speech, it’s free to make its own statements, but when it starts making up legal categories of problematic speech, it is getting disturbingly close to discarding the Bill of Rights.

He concludes that:

… A competent attorney general shouldn’t even be talking about her ‘greatest fears,’ much less that her greatest fear includes free speech. A competent attorney general should be speaking the language of vigilance, courage, and resolve. We know the Obama administration is capable of resolve. It is resolved to fundamentally transform our nation. It is resolved to advance the sexual-revolution agenda of the radical Left. It is resolved to turn our nation’s military into an engine of social justice. But it is not resolved to defend our nation and Constitution from a vicious enemy who seeks to soak our streets in blood. And that lack of resolve is worse than a shame — it’s a disgrace.

Secretary of State John Kerry excuses Islamist terrorist murder of civilians

Sunday, November 22nd, 2015

It’s hard to believe that an American secretary of state would justify terrorism — well, not so hard to believe considering the depravity of the Obama administration. Regarding the savage murder of 12 journalists by Islamists at the Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris in January, Kerry said:

… “There was a sort of particularized focus and perhaps even a legitimacy in terms of — not a legitimacy, but a rationale that you could attach yourself to somehow and say, ‘OK, they’re really angry because of this and that’” …

“Legitimacy” and “rationale” for the murder of satirical cartoonists drawing and publishing pictures? This is outrageous. John Kerry is despicable, justifying terror meant to silence two of the West’s most hallowed ideals: 1) the practice of free speech and 2) the protection of a free press. Kerry should be fired by President Obama — at least censured — but Obama agrees with Kerry. What a said state of affairs. But such type behavior shall only increase if the American people remain silent.

Stand up for what is right. Remind your elected officials of the ideals enshrined in our nation’s Constitution. Ask that John Kerry step down from his position. Ask your public officials to publicly condemn Kerry and demand that he step down. You can use the following link to contact your elected representatives:


Democratic presidential contenders stick to appeasement/foolishness despite Paris terror attacks

Thursday, November 19th, 2015

Why learn the lessons of history when you can pander to a constituency that refuses to recognize the threat of radical Islamists? The Islamist savages murdered 129 and wounded over 350 innocents in Paris Friday, but during the Democratic presidential debate on Saturday in Iowa, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Martin O’Malley insisted they would continue their firm commitments to appeasing and/or ignoring Islamist murderers:

… 1) Hillary Clinton would refuse to apply the phrase “radical Islam” to ISIS; 2) Bernie Sanders would maintain that climate change is a greater threat to national security than ISIS or Islamic terrorism in general; and 3) Martin O’Malley, with Clinton’s agreement, would insist that the U.S. stick to a proposal to admit 65,000 Syria refugees into the country. …

History shows us the terrible consequences of appeasing terror. Just one example out of many is sufficient. Have people already forgotten what happened to this world — how many millions of innocents were killed — after throngs of cowards catered to Hitler and Stalin in the mid 20th century?

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.”


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. …

Shifting Mideast Sands Reveal New Alliances

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.

Shema Hashem: Remembering the Toulouse Tragedy

March 19, 2014, marks the second Yahrzeit of the shooting in Toulouse, France that killed Rabbi Sandler, two of his children, and a little girl.

A Yahrzeit is the anniversary of a loved one’s loss. Generally people get together to remember their loss, support each other, talk, reminisce over old times with the loved one, eat some good food, and burn a Yahrzeit candle. It’s a beautiful ritual that helps survivors to celebrate, process, and remember the one(s) they lost. This is a beautiful video commemorating the evil terrorist act committed in Toulouse, France two years ago:


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.


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.”


Is the US changing sides in the regional conflict between Iran and its enemies?

Sunday, December 1st, 2013

by Jonathan Spyer*

A report by respected Washington-based journalist Hussein Abdul Hussein in the Kuwaiti Al-Rai newspaper this week revealed details of an indirect US channel with Hezbollah.

The report comes, of course, close on the heels of the interim agreement concluded in Geneva between the P5 + 1 world powers and Iran, allowing the latter to continue to enrich uranium.

News items are also surfacing suggesting a stark split between the US and Saudi Arabia over regional policy in general, and policy toward Syria in particular. Saudi officials are going on the record expressing their alarm at the direction of American policy.


‘Largest Massacre of Christians in Syria’ Ignored

Monday, November 25th, 2013

by Raymond Ibrahim*

One of the worst Christian massacres—complete with mass graves, tortured-to-death women and children, and destroyed churches—recently took place in Syria, at the hands of the U.S.-supported jihadi “rebels”; and the U.S. government and its “mainstream media” mouthpiece are, as usual, silent (that is, when not actively trying to minimize matters).

The massacre took place in Sadad, an ancient Syriac Orthodox Christian habitation, so old as to be mentioned in the Old Testament. Most of the region’s inhabitants are poor, as Sadad is situated in the remote desert between Homs and Damascus (desert regions, till now, apparently the only places Syria’s Christians could feel secure; 600 Christian families had earlier fled there for sanctuary from the jihad, only to be followed by it).
