A Google plus (G+) person sent me a video that explains the truth of the genocidal empire building of Islamic conquest prior to the Crusades. In case you are unaware Muslim Apologists and Left Wing sympathizers have made a revisionist history point to villainized Christianity and especially the Crusades as vicious murdering aggressors that eclipses any brutality to poor victim Islam ever perpetrated.

 

You have to understand that viciousness and the slaughter of innocents assigned by these historical revisionists does not compare to the genocidal conquests in the name of Islam. Historical revisionists leave out and fail to tell the full story of Islam. Well Muslim Apologists and Leftists, here’s a dose of one-sidedness to even the score a little.

VIDEO: Was There A Genocide On The Greek Population In Turkey?

 

Published by MagnificentCentury

Published on Jan 17, 2014

 

The Greek genocide, part of which is known as the Pontic genocide, was the systematic ethnic cleansing of the Christian Ottoman Greek population from its historic homeland in Asia Minor, central Anatolia, Pontus, and the former Russian Caucasus province of Kars Oblast during World War I and its aftermath (1914–23). It was instigated by the government of the Ottoman Empire against the Greek population of the Empire and it included massacres, forced deportations involving death marches, summary expulsions, arbitrary executions, and destruction of Christian Orthodox cultural, historical and religious monuments. According to various sources, several hundred thousand Ottoman Greeks died during this period. Some of the survivors and refugees, especially those in Eastern provinces, took refuge in the neighbouring Russian Empire. After the end of the 1919–22 Greco-Turkish War, most of the Greeks remaining in the Ottoman Empire were transferred to Greece under the terms of the 1923 population exchange between Greece and Turkey. Other ethnic groups were similarly attacked by the Ottoman Empire during this period, including Assyrians and Armenians, and some scholars consider those events to be part of the same policy of extermination.

The Allies of World War I condemned the Ottoman government-sponsored massacres as crimes against humanity. More recently, the International Association of Genocide Scholars passed a resolution in 2007 affirming that the Ottoman campaign against Christian minorities of the Empire, including the Greeks, was genocide. Some other organisations have also passed resolutions recognising the campaign as a genocide, as have the parliaments of Greece, Cyprus and Sweden.

At the outbreak of World War I, Asia Minor was ethnically diverse, its population including Turks, Azeris, Greeks, Armenians, Kurds, Zazas, Circassians, Assyrians, Jews, and Laz people.

Among the causes for the Turkish campaign against the Greek population was a fear that the population would aid the Ottoman Empire’s enemies, and a belief among some Turks that to form a modern nation state it was necessary to purge from the territories of the state those national groups who could threaten the integrity of a modern Turkish nation state.

According to a German military attaché, the Ottoman minister of war Ismail Enver had declared in October 1915 that he wanted to “solve the Greek problem during the war… in the same way he believe[d] he solved the Armenian problem.”
Origins

The Greek presence in Asia Minor has been dated to at least the time of Homer around 800 BCE. Prior to their conquest by the Turkic people the Greeks were one of several indigenous peoples living in Asia Minor. The geographer Strabo referred to Smyrna as the first Greek city in Asia Minor. Greeks referred to the Black Sea as the “Euxinos Pontos” or “hospitable sea” and starting in the eighth century BCE they began navigating its shores and settling along its coast. The most notable Greek cities of the Black Sea were Trebizond, Sampsounta, Sinope and Heraclea Pontica. In medieval times Trebizond became an important trade hub and capital of its own state, the Empire of Trebizond.

In the summer of 1914 the Special Organization (Teşkilat-ı Mahsusa), assisted by government and army officials, conscripted Greek men of military age from Thrace and western Anatolia into Labour Battalions in which hundreds of thousands died. Sent hundreds of miles into the Interior of Anatolia, these conscripts were employed in road-making, building, tunnel excavating and other field work but their numbers were heavily reduced through either privations and ill-treatment or by outright massacre by their Ottoman guards. This program of forced conscription later expanded to other regions of the Empire including Pontus

Conscription of Greek men was supplemented by massacres and by deportations involving death marches of the general population. Greek villages and towns would be surrounded by Ottomans and their inhabitants massacred. Such was the story in Phocaea (Greek: Φώκαια), a town in western Anatolia twenty-five miles (40 km) northwest of Smyrna, on 12 June 1914 where the slain bodies of men, women and children were thrown down a well.

In July 1915 the Greek chargé d’affaires explained that the deportations “cannot be any other issue than an annihilation war against the Greek nation in Turkey and as measures hereof they have been implementing forced conversions to Islam, in obvious aim to, that if after the end of the war there again would be a question of European intervention for the protection of the Christians, there will be as few of them left as possible.”

Why does the USDA need Submachine Guns?????

Dept. of Agriculture Orders Submachine Guns with 30 Round Magazines

 

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/05/14/Dept-Of-Agriculture-Orders-Submachine-Guns-With-30-Round-Magazines

 

A May 7th solicitation by the U.S. Department of Agriculture seeks “the commercial acquisition of submachine guns [in] .40 Cal. S&W.”

 

According to the solicitation, the Dept. of Agriculture wants the guns to have an “ambidextrous safety, semiautomatic or 2 round [bursts] trigger group, Tritium night sights front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore group) and scope (top rear), stock collapsible or folding,” and a “30 rd. capacity” magazine.

 

They also want the submachine guns to have a “sling,” be “lightweight,” and have an “oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.”

 

The solicitation directs “all responsible and/or interested sources… [to] submit their company name, point of contact, and telephone.” Companies that submit information in a “timely” fashion “shall be considered by the agency for contact to determine weapon suitability.” (Dept. of Agriculture Orders Submachine Guns with 30 Round Magazines; By AWR HAWKINS; Big Govt. – Breitbart.com; 5/15/14)

Exclusive: Afghanistan suffers trade blow as China halts dollar deals with its banks

Sent: 5/23/2014 8:41 AM

 

http://tinyurl.com/mso4d96

 

(Reuters) – Chinese banks have halted dollar transactions with most Afghan commercial banks, the central bank governor said on Thursday, making it difficult for businesses to pay for imports from one of Afghanistan’s biggest trading partners.

 

“China is a major country that was handling those bank transfers, and now they have told the banks they can’t do it,” governor Noorullah Delawari told Reuters.

 

The impact on business had been felt immediately, he said.

 

 

That has prompted banks from various countries to halt trade with its commercial banks.

 

The Chinese move was part of a trend that was making it increasingly difficult for the banks to execute international transactions, Delawari said.

 

 

The Afghan government’s failure to pass key measures means that it could in June be blacklisted by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), an international body that sets standards on how countries combat money laundering.

 

Banks have been struggling since FATF threatened Afganistan (sic) with the punishment early this year.

KABUL—Afghanistan’s fragile financial system won a reprieve after an intergovernmental body said it wouldn’t blacklist the country for failing to meet standards to combat money laundering and terrorist financing.

 

The Financial Action Task Force, a global body that develops anti-money-laundering guidelines, said Friday that Afghanistan had taken steps toward meeting international standards. But it warned that the country needed to implement measures to avoid landing on its blacklist in October.

 

 

“If Afghanistan does not bring into force CFT [combating financing of terrorism] legislation and issue the necessary regulations compliant with the international standards by the October 2014 FATF meetings, the FATF will call upon its members and other jurisdictions to consider the ML/TF [money laundering/terrorism financing] risks arising from the deficiencies in Afghanistan,” the statement read.

This is such a Joy

Sent: 6/7/2014 9:29 AM

 

http://dailycurrant.com/2013/02/01/message-god-hidden-dna-sequence/

 

Researchers at Harvard University announced today that they have found what appears to be a message from God written inside the human genome.

 

In a little-explored section of non-coding DNA, a team of top geneticists discovered a 22-word snippet of ancient Aramaic in which God confirms his existence and his role in creating life on Earth.

 

The stunning finding represents nearly irrefutable evidence of God’s existence and his role in creating the process of evolution by natural selection.

 

The message was discovered when researchers noticed strange mathematical patterns appearing within a certain section of the genome.

 

“Hello my children. This Yahweh, the one true Lord. You have found creation’s secret. Now share it peacefully with the world.”

 

For Heaven’s Sake

 

“We knew the patterns weren’t naturally occurring,” explains Charles Watson, the lead scientist on the project, “but we couldn’t come up with any convincing explanation for them.

 

 

 

Yahweh is the biblical name for the Judeo-Christian god.

 

Inherit The Earth

 

The findings will be published in the journal Nature next month, and are expected to provoke the biggest scientific controversy since Charles Darwin published his theory of natural selection in 1859.

 

 

“Before this discovery I was a committed atheist. Now I’m a devout Christian. This is exactly the kind of proof I needed to ease my doubts.” (Message From God Found Hidden Inside DNA Sequence; The Daily Current; 2/1/13)

 

[Blog Editor: This article is a joy in that science found scientific evidence that the Judeo/Christian God is the Creator, but it goes out of its way to proclaim the find does not disprove Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. Then the article finishes with a short snippet I believed at the Christian Right.]

 

However, other Christian denominations have a different interpretation of the scientists’ findings.

 

“Clearly this means our God is the one true God and that we should exterminate rival religions,” says Frank Page, leader of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention. “Now that we have truth on our side, I think it’s time we start a new crusade.” READ ENTIRETY (Ibid.)

 

[Blog Editor: I find it interesting that President/CEO Page was in the process of writing and publishing a book relating to the 2009 suicide death of his daughter in the same year as this genome discovery. I found lots of webpages utilizing The Daily Current quote of Frank Page calling for a new crusade to “exterminate rival religions” but no place offering context or comment on the Frank Page quote. If indeed President Page called for the “extermination” of rival religions he has missed the point of the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ. The only time that Christians should unite to wage wars is in defense of the faith from another Religion or secular backed ideology attempting to exterminate Christians. Otherwise the only duty Christians should offensively act upon is to go into all the World to share the Good News that Jesus Christ has come to deliver humanity from the control of ungodly darkness that invaded earthly creation from Adam’s Fall by surrendering to Satan.]

http://www.wnd.com/2014/06/prosecutor-top-7-reasons-to-impeach-obama/

 

Former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy, who says President Obama is guilty of numerous high crimes and misdemeanors that warrant his removal from office, is proposing seven specific articles of impeachment for which he says the evidence is very clear.

 

McCarthy is best known as the lead prosecutor in the cases against the “blind sheikh,” Omar Abdel Rahman, and 11 conspirators behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and plots against other New York City landmarks. McCarthy is now with the National Review Institute. His new book is, “Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment.” In the book, he says the case for impeachment is solid, although he does not believe there is enough political will in the country to move forward at this time.


Nonetheless, McCarthy offers seven indictments, beginning with “The President’s Willful Refusal to Execute the Laws Faithfully and Usurpation of the Legislative Authority of Congress.” Within that article, McCarthy cites Obama’s illegal and unilateral changing of federal statutes, from several components within Obamacare to scrapping codified welfare work requirements to amending immigration laws and enacting policies Congress did not approve.

 

He also alleges Obama failed to execute laws ranging from layoff notifications to the Clean Air Act to nuclear waste and Medicare.


 

“From the first days of Obama’s presidency in 2009 with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, that’s this cabal of 57 Islamic government including the Palestinian Authority, they’ve been working on a resolution to curtail American free speech rights in deference to Shariah blasphemy standards. They have essentially struck a human-rights resolution that makes it unlawful to engage in expression that could incite hostility to religion. Of course, there’s only one religion we’re talking about in this context,” he said.

 

“Proving that there is an Obama administration mandate that attacks religious liberty, it’s not difficult to prove these things have happened, and I don’t even think it’s hard to prove these are high crimes and misdemeanors,” McCarthy said. “Are they serious enough? Does the public think this is egregious enough to remove the president from power?” READ ENTIRETY (Prosecutor: Top 7 reasons to impeach Obama: By GREG COROMBOS; WND; 6/10/14 7:37 PM)

 

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2012/09/25/57-top-u-s-muslim-groups-demanded-government-wide-islamophobia-purge-in-letter-to-white-house/

 

In an excellent article yesterday by Kerry Picket of the Washington Times on the influence of Muslim groups on changing the language used in national security documents and protocol (the whole article is worth the read), Picket reports that last October several dozen top US Muslim groups sent a letter to White House “Assassination Czar” John Brennan demanding that the Obama administration establish a task force with these same organizations to “purge” (their word) US government counter-terrorism training of views them deem offensive.

 

Picket states:

 

By 2011, Obama’s Counterterrorism and Deputy national security advisor John Brennan was urged by Muslim, Arab, and South Asian organizations to begin an “independent, effective investigation into the federal government’s training of its agents and other law enforcement” and institute a “purge” of any material that the undersigned organizations deemed unacceptable.

 

In an October 19, 2011 letter to Mr. Brennan, the groups criticize for anti- Muslim bias the FBI’s 2011 training manual, the books at the FBI library in FBI training academy in Quantico, Virginia, specific FBI trainers and analysts, and a report made by Army Command and General Staff at the Fort Leavenworth School of Advanced Military Studies.

 

The letter makes references to a September 2011 Wired Magazine piece by Spencer Ackerman. The letter was also sent to Attorney General Eric Holder, Department of Homeland Security Sec. Janet Napolitano, Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta, FBI Director Robert Mueller, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, and Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough.

 

 

According to a report on the meeting by Neil Munro of the Daily Caller, several Muslim group leaders called for creating criminal and civil penalties for anyone advocating positions they deem offensive:

 

 

Purges, blacklists, re-education, and book banning. Sounds like a recipe for a Muslim Khmer Rouge.

 

Here’s the Muslim groups’ demand letter in its entirety:

Barack Obama made a briefly reported “gaffe” where he said he’d been in “all 57 states and had one to go, the 58th.”’ (Jerry Todd; Western Journalism)

  

So WAS his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren?


http://www.westernjournalism.com/obamas-57-states-gaffe-proof-he-is-muslim/

 

… Now to the first week of June 2012 when I attended a talk by John Guandolo at a patriotic ACT! For an American veteran’s dinner.

 

Guandolo is an expert on the Muslim Brotherhood with an enviable service record from the Naval Academy, Marines, and Army Ranger School to the Washington Office of the FBI – Counterterrorism Unit. He currently has a security company that advises and trains police, military, and governmental agencies.

 

We learned the depths of infiltration of the Muslim Brotherhood (Al Qaeda is actually a subset) into all aspects of American society – including cutting off any (even Fox) news that might expose their agenda. He meticulously outlined the names of the perpetrators (dead and alive) and myriad universities, departments of government, and military agencies the MB has infiltrated. He flashed on the screen – The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). It has 57 member states! Two of us asked, “Is that Obama’s 57 states that we thought was a gaffe in 2008?” Guandolo responded, “You said it, I didn’t” and went on.


We are all familiar with Obama’s sympathies toward, if not belief in, Islam and his confrontations with Christian doctrine and sensitivities. Was his “57 States” remark a signal that all was well in the world of Sharia where its 58th member isn’t too far from joining its brethren? He also stated there is not one thing the MB infects societies with that does not comply with Sharia, including its American incursions. Military and government officials at all levels take a solemn oath to “protect and defend the US Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Sharia and the Constitution cannot co-exist. Period! Are Obama officials in the Military, Homeland Security, HEW, and attendant czars simply useful idiots or co-conspirators? Treason by default? Guandolo showed the overriding element that allows the whole MB program to work is Political Correctness – which I define as “the manifestation of the spirit of Antichrist!” How appropriate.

Look who said he considers the US Constitution Islamically Compliant and the USA an Islamic Country…

 

Mohammed Elibiary – Homeland Security Adviser, Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, declared victory:

 

“I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution.”  

 

http://www.frontpagemag.com/2013/robert-spencer/mohamed-elibiary-declares-victory-over-constitution/

 

[Blog Editor: The Frontpagemag.com article is written by Robert Spencer an expert on nefarious Islam related to Mohamed Elibiary in a largely tongue-in-cheek essay about Elibiary’s beliefs and U.S. government infiltration.]

 

… Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council, declared victory: “I do consider the United States of America an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution.”

 

It could be a canny new Homeland Security strategy: end the jihad against the U.S. by surrendering to it. If Elibiary can convince the Islamic jihadists who are waging jihad warfare against the United States that America is already “an Islamic country with an Islamically compliant constitution,” they will have nothing left to fight for, at least against us, since the goal of jihad is to impose Islamic law wherever possible, and ultimately over the world entire.

 

 

Also: will the payment of the jizya, the poll tax that the Qur’an (9:29) demands be paid by the subjugated non-Muslims, be written into the existing tax code, or will it become a new layer of the Washington bureaucracy, bringing with it a new raft of forms for beleaguered American taxpayers, and a new raft of thorny problems for H & R Block? And what of the same verse’s command that the subjugated people display “willing submission” to the Muslims, and “feel themselves subdued”? A huge new bureaucratic apparatus will be needed to ensure that non-Muslims are denied equality of rights with Muslims in every way possible, and the civil rights community will have to turn on a dime to trying to secure equal rights for all citizens to working to deny them for non-Muslims and women.

 

 

Counter-terror researcher Patrick Poole reported at PJ Media in 2011 that “Elibiary may have been given access to a sensitive database of state and local intelligence reports, and then allegedly shopped some of those materials to a media outlet.” According to Poole, Elibiary approached “a left-leaning media outlet” with reports marked For Official Use Only that he said demonstrated rampant “Islamophobia” in the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).  The media outlet declined to do a story, but what was Elibiary doing shopping them Official Use Only documents in the first place?

 

 

There have been questions about Elibiary’s true allegiances for years. He was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.”  The visionary in question was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.

In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents. 

 

http://www.frontpagemag.com/2010/ryan-mauro/rashad-hussains-troubling-ties/

President Obama has chosen Rashad Hussain to be his special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference, a post originally created by the Bush Administration in 2008. Hussain’s past association with Muslim Brotherhood-connected entities raises major questions about the type of outreach he envisions for the Muslim world.

 

The Global Muslim Brotherhood Daily Report took a look at Hussain’s official biography and found several concerning affiliations. The first is that in October 2000, Hussain spoke at a conference sponsored by the Association of Muslim Social Scientists, which was listed in an internal Muslim Brotherhood document as one of “our organizations and the organizations of our friends,” and the Prince Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding of Georgetown University, which receives Saudi funding and is directed by prominent Muslim Brotherhood advocate, John Esposito.

 

In September 2004, Hussain played a role in the Muslim Students Association’s annual conference, which was founded by Muslim Brotherhood in 1963 and is also listed as one the group’s fronts in its own documents. Since then, many of its nearly 600 college chapters have engaged in extremism and the group closely collaborates with the other Brotherhood fronts. For example, MSA was part of an umbrella organization called the American Muslim Taskforce that led a campaign against the FBI’s use of informants in mosques and accused the agency of “anti-Muslim activity.” Several Brotherhood affiliates are in this coalition including the Muslim-American Society, the Islamic Circle of North America, the Islamic Society of North America, the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

 

At this conference, Hussain spoke alongside the daughter of Professor Sami Al-Arian, who was convicted of being a key leader of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group and later admitted to being a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Hussain also defended Al-Arian and described his prosecution as being a “politically-motivated persecution.” The network of Brotherhood-affiliated groups have consistently been on his side throughout the entire ordeal and celebrated his release.

 

 

Hussain’s view on the cause of terrorism is important to note as it will play a significant role in the Obama Administration’s outreach to the Muslim world. He quoted a study that concluded that “The primary cause of broad-based anger and anti-Americanism is not a clash of civilizations but the perceived effect of U.S. foreign policy in the Muslim world.” In this statement, it appears that he believes that terrorism is the product of opposition to foreign policy, rather than the product of a politico-religious totalitarian ideology, which explains his opposition to terms like “Islamic terrorism.”

Al-Marayati seems a polite, moderate Arab-American Muslim, is a frequent media spokesperson for American Muslims and was the Clintons’ guest at the White House several times. He espouses American ideals and has reached out to the Christian and Jewish communities. An Iraqi-American, Al-Marayati co-founded and became director of the Los Angeles based MPAC, the Muslim Public Affairs Council, in 1988 to bring help integrate Muslims into American politics and give them a voice.

 

While Al-Marayati is not as radical as his MPAC colleagues–Maher H. Hathout and former board member Mahdi Bray-or as his coalition organizations such as CAIR, he is not a moderate. Consider some of his positions:

RT: Pentagon spending millions to prepare for mass civil unrest

 

The Pentagon is pumping millions of dollars annually into programs that set out to explore the factors responsible for creating civil unrest around the world, The Guardian reported this week.

 

An article by journalist Nafeez Ahmed published by the paper on Thursday this week acknowledges that the little-known United States Department of Defense program — the Minerva Research Initiative — has since 2008 partnered with universities “to improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the US.”

 

According to the program’s website, it has recently awarded millions of dollars to be divvied up among 12 proposals from colleges that have launched projects relevant to the Pentagon’s interest, including a Cornell University study called “Tracking Critical-Mass Outbreaks in Social Contagions” as well as others involving state stability, social disequilibrium and, in one instance, “Understanding American Muslims Converts in the Contexts of Security and Society.” The funding all comes entirely from the Dept. of Defense.

 

 

“The total funds awarded for this set of projects is expected to be around six million dollars in the first year and $17 million over three years,” the Minerva Initiative acknowledged on its website.

 

Writing for The Guardian, Ahmed investigated these programs further and determined that many are directly involved in mass protests and other acts of civil unrest witnessed by the world in recent years. …

 

 

“The Department of Defense takes seriously its role in the security of the United States, its citizens, and US allies and partners,” Dr Erin Fitzgerald, the Minerva Initiative’s director, told The Guardian. “While every security challenge does not cause conflict, and every conflict does not involve the US military, Minerva helps fund basic social science research that helps increase the Department of Defense’s understanding of what causes instability and insecurity around the world. By better understanding these conflicts and their causes beforehand, the Department of Defense can better prepare for the dynamic future security environment.” READ ENTIRETY (RT: Pentagon spending millions to prepare for mass civil unrest; By Adem Altan; Russia Today (RT) via 2012: What’s the ‘real’ truth? 6/14/14 – originally published 6/13/14)

MUSLIMS IN MIAMI SCREAM: ‘WE ARE HAMAS’


Why Hamas is Evil

Tom Trento examines the Jew-hatred of the Islamic Terrorist organization Hamas. The Jew-haters receiving international sympathy from the Western World for Israel kicking their tails for sending missiles on Israeli cities is occurring in our very own nation the United States of America. In the cross post you will see below at the end of the Trento introduction you will view a video that begins with Muslim Hamas sympathizers spewing love for the Jew-haters saying a ditty that Palestine will be free. Trento explains that due to the reason that Hamas exists could be better read as Palestine will be JEW free.

MUSLIMS IN MIAMI SCREAM: ‘WE ARE HAMAS’

 

By Tom Trento

Breitbart.com – Breitbart TV

 

For all the Baby Boomers out in media land, could there be a jingle more annoying than Wendy’s, octogenarian with her nails-scratching-on-the-chalkboard, “WHERE’S THE BEEF?” Well, lately if you have been anywhere near a street corner in a major city or close to an electronic device that emits  sounds, then undoubtedly you have heard the battle jingle of the “Arab Street” along with their pseudo-Marxist trust fund baby comrades, together spewing, “From-the-River-to-the-Sea, Palestine-will-be-Free.” Though this little ditty has a melodic tone and maybe a good hip-hop rapper can make it jump, the curious among you may want to ask, “Hey, what does that river-to-the-sea business actually mean?”

 

That question can be answered quite eloquently by way of a detailed historical analysis going back to the Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, Hassan Al-Banna where in his writings, he desires to mobilize Muslims to recapture of glorious supremacy of the “Arabian Nights” crushing the infidel and raising a scimitar in victorious praise of Allah the majestic! Or our little Arab Street jingle can be fully understood by just adding one word – JEW. You see, Al-Banna realized that the only way Palestine could be free was if that freedom went from the river, the Jordan River on the eastern border of Israel to the sea, the Mediterranean Sea, on the western border of Israel. Again it is at this point that the mildly curious asks, “Free from what?” What must Israel be free of that is so important to the Founder of the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1920’s and to the Armani Jihadis on the street corners today? What freedom do these followers of the Religion of Peace want when they all chant in unison, “From-the-River-to-the-Sea, Palestine-will-be-Free” becoming increasingly louder and more violent at the mere appearance of a Star of David on a child’s yarmulke? For the answer to this perplexing question let’s look at that one word again – JEW. If you take that word – JEW – and place it in our cute Arab rhyme then the code is broken, the puzzle solved and genocide is served on a historic platter. Here, take a look at this revised version and you will have eyes that see the obliteration of Israel and the Jew: “From-the-River-to-the-Sea, Palestine-will-be-JEW-Free.”

 

Ask the true followers of Mohamed and they will tell you, “yeah, yeah, yeah, maybe is some other lifetime Israel was the homeland of the Jews but since the conquest of Mohamedism in the Holy Land, that formerly Jewish real estate has now become Waqf, the Arabic concept of “sacred space.” Or to state it a bit more colloquially, “From-the-River-to-the-Sea, Palestine-will-be-JEW-Free.”

 

As Israel is in a battle for its very existence watch our special presentation and understand that the HAMAS members on the street corner in Miami are the same exact people that the IDF are fighting in the tunnels of Gaza. In a very real sense the disposition of the war in Gaza will have a profound effect on the wannabe jihadis in Miami. If HAMAS is victorious in Gaza, which means anything less than their total military destruction, then our home-grown Miami HAMAS will pen a new iteration of an this old jingle and it will go something like this:

 

“From-the-Miami-River-to-the-Atlantic-Sea, Miami-will-finally-be-JEW-Free.”

Responding Comment to ‘What Palestinians?’


Palestinians Never Existed

John R. Houk

© July 24, 2014

 

Two comments by raginman to the NCCR post of “What Palestinians?

 

July 20, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Palestinians aren’t Arab.

 

July 20, 2014 at 10:46 AM

Palestinians aren’t Arab. Genetic testing shows they’re an amalgamated people who are culturally Arab. They were there before the British Mandate, otherwise there would have been no existing city of Jerusalem prior to the Mandate. Your writing of the history makes it seem as though no one lived in the current land of Israel prior to that point. Clearly that is not the case.

 

I appreciate your statement about the ethnicity of the people that call themselves Palestinians; nonetheless these people consider themselves as Arab and as you pointed out their culture is Arabic. Hence I will continue to call them “Arabs who call themselves Palestinians”.

 

Raginman of course there was a majority Muslim population prior to the existence of the Jewish State, BUT the population of indigenous Muslims descended from generations of centuries was very small. Only as Western technology emptied swamps and properly made the land fit for agriculture then did the Muslim population grow larger. Note the Western technology was largely initiated by Jewish immigrants from Europe willing to do the hard work that the land looked profitable for Muslims to emigrate from other Muslim regions as a land of opportunity. Proximity and Islamic Supremacism made Muslim culturally Arab people immigrate faster to the Holy Land than the Jews were able to their own Homeland.

The Myth of Jewish “Colonialism”: Demographics and Development in Palestine

 

By David Wollenberg

Spring 2001Issue 1

Harvard Israel Review

A Student Publication on Israeli History, Politics and History

 

One of the most powerful and widespread arguments against Zionism and the State of Israel has been the claim that Jewish settlement in Palestine led directly to the displacement and exploitation of the land’s long-established Arab population. In 1939, on the eve of the Holocaust and at the height of British attempts to divide the region into separate Arab and Jewish states, Jamal Husayni, spokesman for the effective government of Palestinian Arabs, forcefully raised this very argument against the Jewish national home:

 

Is it in any way just, that the Arabs, who have lived on this land uninterruptedly for 1300 years, and whose lives are rooted in its soil—should be dispossessed by force, should be pushed aside, and should be blackmailed to enable the Zionist Jews to fashion a Jewish National Home on this land? That’s the problem….1

 

This was also the claim made by five Arab states to justify war against the State of Israel in 1948, just one day after it had declared its independence. According to this view, Jews had been absent from the land of Israel for too long to claim their right to return. In their absence, another group of people had come to occupy the land, and thus the Zionist movement could succeed only at this people’s expense. The West, embarrassed by the horrors of the Holocaust, had founded the State of Israel to clear its conscience, and the Arab residents of Palestine were forced to pay the price. The creation of the Jewish State was thus an outrage, so the argument goes, because the very settlement of the land by Jews was illegitimate.

 

Yet this argument rests on an inaccurate description of the country’s history, namely, a mischaracterization of the demographics of Palestine before 1948. For a number of reasons, both political and environmental, the Arab population of Palestine had been in a constant state of flux for much of the region’s history. There was of course a small Arab population in Palestine that could trace its roots back for centuries. But overall, the Arab population, which had remained dormant for centuries, began to blossom only after the beginning of Jewish immigration and the subsequent improvements in economic conditions, infrastructure, and agricultural techniques. The idea of “uninterrupted settlement…rooted in its soil,” is thus inconsistent with history. It was put forward primarily in an attempt to delegitimize Jewish immigration.

 

This essay will explore the various reasons for the Arab population shifts over time, focusing mainly on the first half of the twentieth century. Such an examination demonstrates that Jewish settlement in Palestine did not amount to the sudden disruption that Husayni and others claim, since there was no continuous national history or uniform population to disrupt. It also suggests that Jewish settlement was in many ways beneficial to the land and all of its inhabitants. In this light, it is clear that the two main tenets of the myth of Jewish “colonialism”—that Zionism uprooted a long-established nation and led to its uniform exploitation—are ideologically motivated distortions.

 

Arab Demographics Prior to British Governance: Dramatic Underpopulation

 

From the period of the Crusades to the beginning of modern times, the population of Palestine remained at a near constant level.2This apparent stability is significant, as populations naturally tend to increase over time. It is estimated that there were 205,000 people living in Palestine in the mid 1500s.3By 1800, the population had only grown to 275,000, reflecting about a thousandth of a percent of average growth a year.4By 1890, still before any significant Jewish immigration, the population had made a slightly larger jump, to 532,000.5But even with this increase, the nineteenth century growth rate was still a small 0.7% per year.6By comparison, in the 1940s the Muslim growth rate in the Middle East was closer to 3.07%.7

 

A number of factors account for this dramatic underpopulation, one of which is environmental. Many people fled the area as early as the fourteenth century as a result of the Black Plague. Starting shortly thereafter, many areas became swamp-infested and malarial, especially in the northern valleys. There is much evidence to suggest that, by the mid-nineteenth century, the region had become nearly uninhabitable. Around this time, German Templars tried to settle the Kinrot Valley, where Jesus had lived, but were forced to leave due to the prevalence of malaria.8Jewish settlers in the 1880s attempted to inhabit the Hula valley, but in some places child mortality rates were nearly 100% because of disease.9The Talmud remarks, “If the Garden of Eden is in the Land of Israel, Beit-Shean is its gateway.”10But when the scholar H.B. Tristram visited the area in the 1860s, traveling in the footsteps of Jesus, he claimed, “We saw not a tree….It is scarcely conceivable how any human beings can inhabit such sites; but such is the contrast, nowhere more settling than here, between ancient civilization and modern degradation.”11 Mark Twain was disillusioned by his trip to the Holy Land. He wrote, “Palestine sits in sackcloth and ashes…desolate and unlovely…it is dreamland.”12Even by 1931, after many early Zionist efforts to clear the land, only a third of the whole region was cultivable.13No doubt, the lack of fertile land and presence of disease contributed to the comparatively limited population growth.

 

The higher growth rate of the nineteenth century (relative to the previous rates) must be attributed to a different set of conditions, namely major demographic shifts stemming from emigration and immigration. In 1831, Muhammad Ali of Egypt invaded the region to obtain raw materials and a market for his country’s industrializing economy.14As a result of the violence, many fellaheen, or farmers, fled Palestine to neighboring regions. Yet these emigres were soon replaced by a new wave of farmers from Egypt seeking to escape their country’s military draft.15According to the French scholar M. Sabry, the Egyptian governor Ibrahim Pasha brought over six thousand people to settle empty stretches of land in Palestine.16Although his leadership brought a greater sense of law and order to the land than ever before, the conquest precipitated a half-century of intertribal warfare, especially among the Bedouin.17The British decided that this instability threatened their economic interests in the region and forced Ibrahim to retreat to Egypt.18The net result of this upheaval was a positive but minor population increase. It would not be until the end of the century that modernizing developments would cause major demographic changes.

 

British Control: Population Shifts and the Beginnings of Growth

 

With British control during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries came greater material stability and economic growth. As a result of the construction of railroad lines that led to the sea, the population of Haifa tripled and that of Jaffa more than doubled from 1880 to 1910.19But while the population shifted toward these areas, the overall growth rates for the country stayed low. According to British investigations, there were 689,275 persons in Palestine in 1915, about 590,000 of whom were Arab.20 Given a population in 1890 of 532,000 (473,000 Arab), this still represents only a 0.8% per year growth rate.

 

Soon afterwards, during World War I, the Ottomans tried to muster troops from the region, prompting many of the upper classes to flee. It appears that the war prompted a massive flight, immediately followed by a huge influx. According to contemporary surveys, the Arab population declined by 35,000 during the years 1915 to 1919. While many Arabs may have fled to escape the draft, others were expelled by force. To defend against the British, the Ottomans, still nominally in control, expelled both Jews and Arabs from cities across the coast on the assumption that their nationalistic intentions could lead them to sympathize with the British invaders. This effort was massive: twenty-eight thousand Arabs were forced out of Gaza alone.21By 1922, however, just three years later, the Arab population had increased by 80,000 above the 1919 level.22After the War had ended and Britain had taken formal control of the area (with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire), Arab population rates recovered quickly and significantly. Many Arabs took advantage of the improved economic conditions that resulted from British administration; and by 1922, the population of Haifa—which had declined by 30% from 1915 to 1917 due to Ottoman expulsions23—had become greater than it was before the war.24 The Zionists, also eager to take advantage of this economic growth, had hoped that the British government, the country’s largest employer, would hire Jews in construction. But the British preferred cheaper foreign labor; and in the period leading up to 1922 they employed fifteen thousand foreigners (mostly from Egypt and Syria) and only five hundred Jews.25Despite this low employment rate, however, the Jewish population continued to grow through immigration. The increasing numbers of these two populations would soon lead to a significant clash.

 

Approaching 1948: Economic Growth and the Population Burst

 

After years of relative stagnation, the few decades leading up to 1948 saw significant growth in both Arab and Jewish populations. Had the Arab population remained at its pre-WWI growth rate (0.8%) after 1922, one would have expected a population of approximately 785,000 by 1947. But there were in fact between 1.2 and 1.3 million Arabs in all of Palestine by 1947.26What could have caused this sudden burst?

 

To investigate possible causes, it is important to examine where in the country the growth took place. Non-Jewish population growth rates were highest within modern-day sovereign Israel and in the West Bank and Gaza Strip regions. These rates cannot be explained by higher birth rates alone.

 

One major factor accounting for the unexpected growth was the potential for upward mobility that existed in the western cities. The wages of western cities were more attractive, no doubt bringing many people from surrounding areas. Port cities also offered greater employment opportunities, which helps explain the fact that there was a dramatic influx into Haifa and Jaffa relative to cities like Beit-Shean and Jerusalem.

 

Another major reason for the population explosion was the revolution that took place in farming and thus in the ecosystem generally. Agriculture had been the main source of income of 90% of Muslims in 1931.29With the increase in Jewish immigration during this period, Arab farmers began to pressure the British to stop the Jewish influx, arguing that the land could not sustain any more inhabitants. The result was the Passfield White Paper of 1930, which claimed:

 

It can now be definitely stated that at the present time and with the present methods of Arab cultivation there remains no margin of land available for agricultural settlement by new immigrants, with the exception of such undeveloped land as the various Jewish agencies hold in reserve.30

 

Although this document would be repudiated only a year later, it reflects the widespread and strongly-held belief that the land’s resources could not be shared. Yet this belief was based on the assumption that the state of agriculture could not improve, an assumption that experience would soon prove false.

 

One major reason for this improvement was swamp drainage. The project, largely conceived and carried out by Jewish immigrants with some British help, was enormous in magnitude. It provided dramatic health benefits in addition to large increases in the amount of arable land.

 

Another development in farming took the form of improved agricultural techniques. Formerly, according to historian Kenneth Stein, “the cultivated land was not very fertile or sufficiently irrigated. The failure or inability to use modern agricultural techniques such as manuring and mechanization kept yields to a minimum. Crop rotation was rarely practiced.”32This would all change in a very short time.

 

Yet another reason for improvement was the growth of citriculture, the most profitable form of agriculture in the country.33From 1931 to 1937, land used for citriculture increased by almost 200%, with total citrus output rising 380%. During the same period, total wheat cultivation remained near constant, dropping about 4% in total area, but tripling in output. Arab agricultural techniques improved in other ways as well, resulting in increased production of produce, tobacco, watermelons, cattle, and fowl. With new farming techniques and more cultivable land, the naturally sustainable population increased exponentially.

 

Another Piece of the Puzzle: Property Ownership

 

One of the major obstacles faced by Jewish immigrants who tried to purchase land prior to 1948 was the unique system of property ownership established in much of the country. In 1932, 117,869 dunam of land was held by absentee landowners. In most cases, tenant farmers worked the land, creating a dilemma for land purchasers.34 Even after buying the land from the “real” owner, the tenant farmers would generally remain in place. In 1927, the British passed a law preventing the transfer of land without first securing new land for the tenant farmer or making a cash settlement.35Yet this had already been the policy of the Jewish Agency, which had explicitly sought to avoid controversy in its land purchases. The Shaw Commission reported:

 

We think that the Jewish Companies are not open to any criticism in respect of these transactions. In paying compensation, as they undoubtedly did, to many of the cultivators of land which they purchased in the Plain of Esdraelon [Jezreel Valley] those companies were making a payment which at the time of the transactions the law of Palestine did not require. Moreover, they were acting with the knowledge of the Government.36

 

Despite this careful attention to the tenant farmers’ reimbursement, Arab fellaheen often claimed that Jews had given them little or no compensation. In response, the British launched investigations into over 3000 claims, of which about 2500 were ultimately rejected.37For the 600 or so claims that were accepted, the Development Department was required to provide 60 dunam of irrigable land or a cash settlement that would presumably allow the farmer to move to a city.38 The immigration of Jews to Palestine was thus done both legally and ethically.

 

But the local Arab elite’s complaints about Jewish immigration were not about legality anyway. These leaders claimed that the presence of outsiders would destroy the Arab nature of the country, a claim that can still be heard among Palestinians and pro-Palestinian advocates today. Ironically, however, many of the strongest opponents of Jewish land purchases were also the people who profited most from them. A brief list of Arab leaders who sold land to Jews includes Fahmi el-Husayni, mayor of Gaza; Ragheb Nashashibi, mayor of Jerusalem and founder of the “National Defense Party”; Mussa el-‘Alami, Government Advocate of the Palestine Government and a member of the Arab Higher Committee; As’ad el-Shuqairi, father of Ahmed Shuqairi, the first chairman of the P.L.O.; and Jamal el-Husayni, who is quoted at the beginning of this essay.39 Of course, the Arab leadership attempted to suppress this information, but it was brought to public attention by Lewis French, the first director of the British Mandatory Government’s Department of Development.40The news of the Arab leadership’s hypocrisy eventually led to the collapse of the Arab Executive (the governing Arab body in the Mandate) in the early 1930s. It would not be until 1936 that another body of political leadership would come to exist, in the form of the Arab Higher Committee.41

 

Husayni’s claim of 1300 years of uninterrupted Arab presence in Palestine is clearly a convenient simplification. Any statements about the demographics of Palestine before 1948 must recognize the country’s dynamic history. The first half of the twentieth century was a period of sweeping changes for the land and all the people living on it—Arab and Jew. After remaining nearly stagnant for centuries, the population exploded in modern times due to improved infrastructure, agriculture, and immigration, both Jewish and Arab. As a result, from 1890 to 1947, in less than sixty years, the population grew from 532,000 to 1,845,560.42The Arab population of Palestine grew more from 1922 to 1947 than it had over the previous 400 years. But the population shift that would occur over the following three years, as a result of the U.N. partition plan and the Arab-Israeli war, would be so momentous that it almost makes this prior data seem irrelevant. Each side blames the other for the consequences of the war, including some who point to the war as proof of “Zionist aggression.” But even Benny Morris, the historian who argued that the Palestinian refugee problem was caused in part by Israeli military actions43points out that “the [refugee] problem was a direct consequence of the war that the Palestinians—and, in their wake, the surrounding Arab states—had launched.”44From the beginning, it was Arab intolerance of the Jewish presence that caused the widespread opposition to Israel, an intolerance that resulted in the war of 1948. Jews, of course, had not chosen arbitrarily to immigrate to this area of the world. Moreover, they did so legally and with positive effects. As evidenced by the massive growth in population, the improvement of agriculture, and increased wages, the claim against Jewish return to Palestine was not pragmatic but ideological. The idea of a Jewish State as such was, from the beginning, anathema to the Arabs living there, and they sought to discredit and defeat it by any means possible. It is in this context that the birth of the Arab-Israeli conflict must be considered.

From the Editors

 

This issue of the Harvard Israel Review represents the hard work of many students over several months. The individuals who produced this issue share a common concern for the deteriorated political situation and abhorrent violence in the Middle East. They also share the hope that, one-day, Israel, living beside its neighbors in peace and security, will empower Jews around the world by creating communal self-reliance and protecting Jews from anti-Semitism.

 

The West once viewed the idea of the Jewish State with this same hope. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, when the world learned the extent of the horror visited upon the Jewish people, Jewish empowerment became a moral imperative to those in the West. World leaders and intelligentsia, especially in Europe and America, felt that Jewish self-reliance through the creation of a Jewish State was the only way to prevent another Holocaust.

I found this Tom Trento “Micro-Series” on Dr. Rich Swier’s blog of the same name. The title is ‘Grover Norquist: The Wizard of K Street — “The LOVE of Money is the Root of all EVIL”’ I sent it to myself to examine some time ago. My email inbox tells me I sent this on May 6, 2014; however the Trento article is dated April 30, 2014. So I am a bit behind the curve in getting to it. Nevertheless, I find it so interesting I feel compelled to share it in a cross post anyway. The Swier blog post only has the first micro-movie in the Tom Trento Micro-Series that exposes Grover Norquist as not a friend of Conservatives even though Norquist represents himself as a Republican lobbyist. Somehow and I don’t recall how, I found all the Youtube links at a now discontinued Trento website known as The United West that has all seven Micro-Series videos. Of which Trento adds a number eight which are actually three links to a CBS expose of Jack Abramoff as a corrupt lobbyist that has been convicted. I include those three links below seven Micro-Series Youtube videos.

 

Below is the text of the Swier blog post minus the first video. I am posting the Micro-Series in entirety which can be on the J. Mark Campbell Youtube channel.

Grover Norquist: The Wizard of K Street — “The LOVE of Money is the Root of all EVIL”

Dr. Rich Swier Blog

 

BAD GUYS, GOVERNMENT LIES, MUSLIM SPIES: THE WIZARD OF “K” STREET EPISODE 1 – “The LOVE of Money is the Root of all EVIL”

 

In episode one we establish that the most powerful “un-elected” man in Washington LOVES money above all else. Grover Norquist eats, drinks, works, thinks, plans and sleeps – MONEY. Money is what defines Grover and directs Grover. The more money the better. Forget about Republican principles, forget about Ronald Reagan and his three legged stool, forget about friends and family. Remember, Grover = MONEY, the more the better.

 

FAQ’S

 

WHAT IS A MICRO-SERIES?

 

A micro-series is our new term for a compilation of very short, to the point videos which make a fundamental point and stand alone, but when woven together form a complete investigative expose’ documentary. We plan to release a new episode each week.

 

WHY DID YOU SELECT GROVER NORQUIST TO EXPOSE AS A BAD GUY?

 

That’s easy! If half of what has been written and discovered about Grover is true than this guy is clearly an ideological enemy of the state and NOT the Republican savior that many believe. Therefore, he must be de-legitimized before his various Boards and completely rejected by the dopey politicians who are beholden to him for their political careers.

 

IF NO ONE HAS BEEN ABLE TO DISLODGE GROVER’S DEEP ROOTS OF INFLUENCE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU CAN?

 

The way we see it, if we are able to disrupt, disable or destroy Grover’s influence operation in America, the country is better off. But if we are not than we will have tons of material for our “edutainment” programs where we educate through entertainment. And what better subject for ridicule than a short-fat-bearded man who loves guns almost as much as he loves money, idolizes terrorists and is probably a “secret” Muslim, collects “Grover” dolls and has a black-board-screechy speaking voice that ought to be used at GITMO to torture terrorists!

 

Look, when your job is to fight, Bad Guys, Government Lies and Muslim Spies…you gotta have some fun!

Published on May 6, 2014

 

EPISODE 2 – “K-Street Kapitalism – Chi-Com Style”

In episode two we begin to get inside the head of Grover Norquist,
boy nerd turned vunderboy K-Street lobbyist. What really motivates Grover and how is he able to manipulate so many well-intended politicians?

The short answer is MONEY combined with POWER. Psychiatrists tell us that people like Grover who lust for money, fame and power are often struggling to overcome their emotional and physical deficiencies.

In this episode,”K-Street Kapitalism – Chi-Com Style,”
you will see the fusion of MONEY and POWER played out in a beautiful Pacific tropical paradise…and it ain’t a pretty sight.

The essential “take-away” from this investigative segment is that Grover’s raison d’etre is MONEY over MORALITY. If you understand that basic philosophical predisposition then you can begin to unravel how he has such an iron-clad grip on politicians and policies in Washington DC.

Move over, you will see how his nefarious work impacts YOU on a daily basis in the areas of:

VENI VEDI VISA – “I came, I saw, I took your Job!”

In this episode we break Grover’s immigration H1-B, VISA scam.

Actually, it’s a brilliant scam where Wizard Norquist and his minions construct a false premise, then conceptually sell this bogus idea as the next best conservative idea to hit Washington. He then secures his target clients, collects eye-popping retainers and does the “K” Street shuffle on the heads of spineless politicians, who mechanically sign the law that the Wizard puts in their power-loving hands.

What a mess this guy has made out of the formerly honorable Conservative movement in America.

Norquist has made a bit of a name for himself as a Beltway stand-up “comedian.”

But none of his jokes have ever reached the level of side-splitting yuck, yucks, as when he says, with a straight face no less…

“Immigration is the number one economic asset for America!”

Now, that IS funny…and destructive for serious Constitutional Conservatives…of which, the Wizard of “K” Street is not one.

(Everywhere there are politicians to control, money to be made and Islam to advance) And who’s really behind RNC Immigration Policy?

Just the way Waldo seems to pop up in the strangest places, Grover Norquist, uber-lobbyist actually “pops” up where there are politicians to manipulate, money to be made and Islam to advance.

As the definitive Wizard of “K” Street, Waldo, errr, I mean Grover is all over the place! Hey America, we are producing this investigative series on Norquist because of his past and present influence operation capabilities with politicians and their staff.

Remember, Grover is NOT the super-conservative that his PR machine presents, but indeed an ideological, enemy-of-the-state.

Therefore one of our investigative objectives is to de-legitimize his impact on the critical November 4, 2014 election, particularly the significant, “battle ground” states.

Check out in this video how even the acclaimed publication, National Review, had to apply a little “photo-shop” magic to Waldo the Wizard!

Grover Norquist’s Islamic Republic of America

 

Published by J. Mark Campbell

Published on June 11, 2014

 

Episode 7 presents the forensic case proving definitively that Grover Norquist is guilty of aiding and abetting Muslim terrorists who want to turn America into an Islamic Republic.

WOW, that’s a pretty serious charge against a guy with so many conservative awards and friends in high places. Yeah, it is a serious charge, but the better question should be…

Is it TRUE?

In an effort to have you personally analyze the data, we provide a powerful combination of Tom Trento and Frank Gaffney presenting the case against Grover Norquist.

Tom takes a few minutes at the beginning of this presentation to set the stage and then Frank Gaffney will systematically lay out the evidence piece-by-piece building a comprehensive, indisputable, prima facie case of Norquist’s consistent collaboration, participation and partnership with convicted Muslim terrorists!

Folks, this is HUGE and impacts the November election!

I guarantee that after absorbing this in-depth investigative material you will be asking yourself,

“How come Norquist is not in jail like all his terrorist friends? In subsequent episodes of “The Wizard of “K” Street,” we will answer that question…and the answer ain’t pretty.

Grover is NOT the super-conservative that his Public Relations machine presents, but indeed an ideological, enemy-of-the-state.

Therefore one of our investigative objectives is to de-legitimize his impact on the critical November 4, 2014 election, particularly in the significant, “battle ground” states.

Please take the time now to review this intelligence briefing YOU will NOT regret it!

CAIR-St Louis Postpones its Propaganda Event


 

 

John R. Houk

© July 23, 2014

 

On July 15 I posted “What to do at Radical Islamic Events on U.S. Soil”. The post was inspired by an alert sent by Florida Family Association concerning CAIR-St Louis sponsoring a media event with the purpose of:

 

“…this event is get members of the press and local Muslim leaders in the same room once a year. During the program CAIR-St. Louis representatives share unique advice on how to cover Islam, the American Muslim community, build contacts within local Muslim leaders, discuss trends on how the media portrays Islam, pitch insightful story ideas, and share Ramadan through breaking of the fast (iftar) and dinner.” (CAIR St. Louis July 23, 2014 media event at The Seven Gables Inn has been postponed/canceled; By FFA; Florida Family Association; email date- 7/22/2014 9:00 AM)

 

This was really a propaganda event in which Muslims and the local press would have been invited.

 

In my post I gave a precursor before cross posting the FFA alert email. The essence of my precursor is that the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a nefarious Radical Muslim organization with links to both the Islamic terrorists Hamas (Currently shooting missiles into Israeli cities) and the Muslim Brotherhood (currently outlawed in Egypt). Even more nefarious portrays itself as the primary Muslim civil rights group in America and has a peaceful Moderate Islamic stand in the USA. I’m not going to rehash that here so if you wish to read about the wickedness of CAIR as a national organization in which the St Louis chapter is sponsoring a propaganda event go HERE.

 

Today’s FFA email alert informs readers that the CAIR-St Louis Chapter “postponed” the media event. The FFA believes that good Americans concerned about Stealth Jihad in America inundated the Seven Gables Inn with complaints of allowing a Radical Muslim organization having a closed to kafir (except the local press) media event influenced the “postponement”. I pray the FFA is correct but no actual details of the postponement reason has been made public – as yet. If indeed this is the case it is a win for Counterjihad education on the nature of Islam.

Overcome Political Realism with Grassroots Conservatism


Face of Obama - Impeach Him

IMPEACH OBAMA!

 

John R. Houk

© July 22, 2017

 

Brent Smith has written an article that is correctly critical of Speaker John Boehner and the GOP Establishment leadership for brushing off calls for President Barack Hussein Obama’s impeachment.

 

Too many Republicans from both Conservatives and GOP Establishment withstand calls for impeachment out of what I can call political realism. The thinking runs something like this: Even if the House of Representatives currently under a GOP majority serves articles of impeachment with a simple majority, the Constitution states that two-thirds of the members of the Senate are needed to convict and remove from Office. (See Standards for Impeachment) That 2/3 today is sixty Senators. Realists believe even with a majority win in the 2014 election it would be doubtful that there would be 60 Republican Senators. And it is a decent guess that if a miracle occurs and the Senate session beginning after the 2014 reaches at least 60 Senators, that are probably enough RINOs to thwart a conviction of President Barack Hussein Obama.

 

Despite the logical arguments of the political Realists I say PHOOEY!

 

Admittedly I felt Barack Obama had a Socialist Transformative agenda to end the Constitutional America as we know it which includes throwing Biblical Christian values into irrelevance from the beginning of the rise of his popularity in the 2008 election cycle. NONETHELESS, for we Americans that want to see accountability from an elected official rather than see how political realism plays out. Beginning impeachment proceedings NOW we the people will see just who in the House stands for accountability and who stands for political realism. The 2014 election cycle will then give constituents an actual voice about their Representative in the House. If constituents vote for a candidate or incumbent that maintains the political realist status quo, then they deserve the future Left Wing despotism that will gain deeper roots resulting from Obama transformatism (See Time [Leftist Vision], Education Brainwashing, OBAMA FORCED A CHANGE NOT WANTED and The Godless Left And Social Justice).

 

If a majority of the House votes to impeach the President, at this point it would probably be the 2015 Senate installed in January that decides to keep or boot President Barack Hussein Obama out of Office. I am praying if a GOP led Senate fails to remove Obama from Office, then more voters will wake-up to the dysfunction of reality politics by insuring a Conservative GOP election of President and a super majority in both the House and Senate in 2016. Impeachment proceedings will make this the true political reality. In this case there is a difference between verified reality and predictive realism.

 

Ben Smith’s article calling for Obama’s impeachment is a growing Conservative grassroots movement to counter the squeamishness of political realism.

No to Impeachment – Yes to Lawsuit

 

By Ben (Smith) the Common Constitutionalist

July 21, 2014

The Common Constitutionalist

 

Recently, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, little Johnny Boehner, proclaimed that, “Every member of Congress swore an oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. So did Pres. Obama. But too often over the past five years, the president has circumvented the American people and their elected representatives through executive action, changing and creating his own laws, and excusing himself from the forcing statutes he is sworn to uphold – at times even boasting about his willingness to do it, as if daring the American people to stop him.”

 

“That’s why, later this month, we will bring legislation to the House floor that would authorize the House of Representatives to file suit in an effort to compel president Obama to follow his oath of office and faithfully execute the laws of our country.”

 

Boehner’s statement was in direct response to Obama’s “So Sue Me” statement to Congress. In other words, Obama will do whatever he darn well pleases, and if you don’t like it – tough toenails for you.

 

He didn’t, nor does anyone else using that phrase, mean to actually sue him. Maybe he did.

 

Boehner says he’s disappointed in “the president’s flippant dismissal of the Constitution we are both sworn to defend…”

 

He’s disappointed? That’s it? Not outraged at the president who is breaking the law on a regular basis, and consistently acting anti-constitutionally?

 

There is a method of redress you know, Johnny. It’s written right in that Constitution you swore to defend but probably haven’t read. It’s called impeachment and I guarantee if this were Bush thumbing his nose at a Democrat Congress, articles would have been drawn up long ago – and rightly so. I would certainly support it, whoever is in office.

 

No official is above the Constitution. No – not even Ronaldus Magnus (Ronald Reagan).

 

So why file a lawsuit? Why not impeachment? A few reasons, in my opinion.

 

First, little Johnny would feel the need to garner “public support” for impeachment which is not required and wholly unnecessary. But we all know he is too cowardly to actually “do his job” without first getting approval. There was almost no support to impeach Nixon before the process began – neither public nor congressional.

 

Second: assuming Congress has legal “standing” or authority in the eyes of the court to even file a lawsuit – it would drag on potentially for years and accomplish exactly nothing – except for spineless Republicans to claim their at least “trying” to stop this “lawless” president. It’s great cover for the lily livered establishment, and they know it.

 

I haven’t heard this theory, but I’ll just throw it out there. Finally and most importantly is the built-in excuse of no longer having to answer any questions.

 

Let me put it a better way. You know – whenever there is a major court case or major lawsuit being litigated – what do the parties always say when asked about the case? “I’m sorry, I can’t discuss that, I can’t comment on an ongoing case. I’d like to comment – but I can’t.”

 

Wow! What better way for both sides to just give the finger to all of us demanding that something be done about Obama.

 

Reporter: “Mr. Boehner – what are you going to do to stop the president’s open border lawlessness?” Boehner: I’m sorry, but that’s part of an ongoing lawsuit. You know I can’t discuss it. Sure wish I could though.”

 

Voilà! Problem solved for the establishment! No more questions – no more scrutiny!

 

Also, once a lawsuit is filed, Congress can wash its hands of it. Their attorneys, being well paid by us rubes, will handle the heavy lifting, as it were. Spineless congressional leaders get a free pass – they don’t have to do anything or say anything.

 

It’s a win-win!

Sarah Palin Doubles Down – Impeach Obama 7-19-14


Sarah Palin at Western Conservative Summit 2014 (3)

In spite of critics on both the Left and the Right, Sarah Palin is doubling down with speeches demanding Congress impeach President Barack Hussein Obama. Palin delivered her fiery speech to impeach Obama at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver on July 19.

 

Below is a shortened video of the speech. I am following with a B. Christopher Agee short article high lighting the speech from Western Journalism. Then for those who are interested, I am following the Agee article with Sarah Palin’s full 36 and half minute speech. And yes I still agree with Sarah Palin.

This afternoon, at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, CO, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin doubled-down on her call to impeach President Obama. She explains her stance and lists several offenses for which Obama could be impeached. Governor Palin initially called for the impeachment of President Obama in an article published on July 8, 2014 on Breitbart.com found here: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governme…

By B. CHRISTOPHER AGEE

JULY 21, 2014

Western Journalism

 

Conservative firebrand Sarah Palin tackled Barack Obama’s perceived dereliction of duty during a weekend speech, going so far as to double down on her prior claim that he should be impeached.

 

“These days you hear all of these politicians denouncing Barack Obama,” she said at the Western Conservative Summit, “’Oh, he’s a lawless, imperial president and he ignores court orders and changes laws by fiat and refuses to enforced laws that he just doesn’t like.’”

 

Palin complained, however, that the outrage generally ends at the rhetorical phase.

 

“That’s true,” she said of the common criticisms; “but the question is hey, politicians, what are you gonna do about it?”

 

She suggested “calling their bluff,” noting that decisive action is the only way to deliver a clear message.

 

“There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors,” she said, “and it’s impeachment.”

 

The former Alaska governor went on to note that America’s founders viewed ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ as “the abuse or violation of some public trust.”

 

She said an impeachable offense, according to Alexander Hamilton, consists of “injuries done immediately to the society itself.”

 

According to Palin, a number of scandals that have rocked the administration thus far fit that bill. Primarily, however, she noted that the immigration crisis should qualify as grounds for impeachment.

 

“Alone,” she concluded, “not defending borders is dereliction of duty, violating the oath of office. If that’s not impeachable, nothing is. And if he’s not impeachable, no one is.”

From Prof Steven Plaut in Israel – And now a word from our sponsor


Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu 2

Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu

 

 

Ari Bussel forwarded a fascinating piece from Steven Plaut. Mr. Plaut entitled his email “And now a word from our sponsor”. The theme is the fascinating part. I am not checking the validity of the theme but since Ari Bussel sent the forward; that works for me. Mr. Plaut shows that “Hamas” is a word in the Old Testament. Of course Steven Plaut is also referring to the Islamic terrorist organization that desires to destroy Israel, kidnap and/or kill Jews. Ari Bussel and Steven Plaut write from a Jewish perspective and are pro-Israel. Ari provides the text Hebrew and English side by side to reference the short discourse of Steven Plaut. I am placing the side-by-side Hebrew-English Scripture preceding Plaut’s forwarded article. This is just as it was sent to me.

 

While researching the article I discovered that Steven Plaut had this posted at Zionist Conspiracy. Steven Plaut cites in the article his thoughts are based “…on an article published by the controversial Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu”. I tried to Google that article but the closest thing I could find is a Yeranen Yaakov post entitled, “Rav Shmuel Eliyahu: “Thank Hashem for Miracles” and Explains Every חמס in Tehillim”. This is dated 7/17/14. Between Ari Bussel and Steven Plaut (and now Yeranen Yaakov) I am discovering just how ignorant I am pertaining Judaism. This self-realization is a bit disheartening because I consider myself a staunch Christian Zionist in my support for Israel and the Jewish people. At any rate the Yeranen Yaakov post is actually a brief description of Psalms in Judaic-Hebrew called “Tehillim. Then the post is linked to Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu writing in Hebrew. I have put together a Microsoft Word translation of the pdf file, but in all the copy and pasting I forgot that Hebrew is written from right to left rather than the English I am used to written from left to right. I’ll spend some time trying to piece together the translation and if I can make some sense out of it I may post.

 

Without further ado here is the email sent to me by Ari Bussel.

ד  כִּי יְהוָה אֱלֹהֵיכֶם, הַהֹלֵךְ עִמָּכֶם–לְהִלָּחֵם לָכֶם עִם-אֹיְבֵיכֶם, לְהוֹשִׁיעַ אֶתְכֶם.

4 for the LORD your God is He that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you.’

Genesis 6:11, 13

 

 

יא  וַתִּשָּׁחֵת הָאָרֶץ, לִפְנֵי הָאֱלֹהִים; וַתִּמָּלֵא הָאָרֶץ, חָמָס.

11 And the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

יב  וַיַּרְא אֱלֹהִים אֶת-הָאָרֶץ, וְהִנֵּה נִשְׁחָתָה:  כִּי-הִשְׁחִית כָּל-בָּשָׂר אֶת-דַּרְכּוֹ, עַל-הָאָרֶץ.  {ס}

12 And God saw the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. {S}

יג  וַיֹּאמֶר אֱלֹהִים לְנֹחַ, קֵץ כָּל-בָּשָׂר בָּא לְפָנַי–כִּי-מָלְאָה הָאָרֶץ חָמָס, מִפְּנֵיהֶם; וְהִנְנִי מַשְׁחִיתָם, אֶת-הָאָרֶץ.

13 And God said unto Noah: ‘The end of all flesh is come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.

 

Psalms 7:13-18

 

 

יג  אִם-לֹא יָשׁוּב, חַרְבּוֹ יִלְטוֹשׁ;    קַשְׁתּוֹ דָרַךְ, וַיְכוֹנְנֶהָ.

13 If a man turn not, He will whet His sword, He hath bent His bow, and made it ready;

יד  וְלוֹ, הֵכִין כְּלֵי מָוֶת;    חִצָּיו, לְדֹלְקִים יִפְעָל.

14 He hath also prepared for him the weapons of death, yea, His arrows which He made sharp.

טו  הִנֵּה יְחַבֶּל-אָוֶן;    וְהָרָה עָמָל, וְיָלַד שָׁקֶר.

15 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity; yea, he conceiveth mischief, and bringeth forth falsehood.

טז  בּוֹר כָּרָה, וַיַּחְפְּרֵהוּ;    וַיִּפֹּל, בְּשַׁחַת יִפְעָל.

16 He hath digged a pit, and hollowed it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.

יז  יָשׁוּב עֲמָלוֹ בְרֹאשׁוֹ;    וְעַל קָדְקֳדוֹ, חֲמָסוֹ יֵרֵד.

17 His mischief shall return upon his own head, and his violence shall come down upon his own pate.

יח  אוֹדֶה יְהוָה כְּצִדְקוֹ;    וַאֲזַמְּרָה, שֵׁם-יְהוָה עֶלְיוֹן.

18 I will give thanks unto the LORD according to His righteousness; and will sing praise to the name of the LORD Most High. {P}

 

Psalms 11:5-6

 

ה  יְהוָה, צַדִּיק יִבְחָן:    וְרָשָׁע, וְאֹהֵב חָמָסשָׂנְאָה נַפְשׁוֹ.

5 The LORD trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth.

ו  יַמְטֵר עַל-רְשָׁעִים, פַּחִים:    אֵשׁ וְגָפְרִית, וְרוּחַ זִלְעָפוֹת–מְנָת כּוֹסָם.

6 Upon the wicked He will cause to rain coals; fire and brimstone and burning wind shall be the portion of their cup.

 

Psalms 18:49-50 (but the whole chapter is relevant)

 

מט  מְפַלְּטִי, מֵאֹיְבָי:    אַף מִן-קָמַי, תְּרוֹמְמֵנִי; מֵאִישׁ חָמָס, תַּצִּילֵנִי.

49 He delivereth me from mine enemies; yea, Thou liftest me up above them that rise up against me; Thou deliverest me from the violent man.

נ  עַל-כֵּן, אוֹדְךָ בַגּוֹיִם יְהוָה;    וּלְשִׁמְךָ אֲזַמֵּרָה.

50 Therefore I will give thanks unto Thee, O LORD, among the nations, and will sing praises unto Thy name.

 

 

Psalms 25:19 (see the translation “CRUEL HATRED”)

 

יט  רְאֵה-אֹיְבַי כִּי-רָבּוּ;    וְשִׂנְאַת חָמָס שְׂנֵאוּנִי.

19 Consider how many are mine enemies, and the cruel hatred wherewith they hate me.

 

Psalms 35:12, 15, 20 (just several examples of modern-day behavior of our enemies; see the complete chapter for more verses)

 

י  כָּל עַצְמוֹתַי, תֹּאמַרְנָה–    יְהוָה, מִי כָמוֹךָ:
מַצִּיל עָנִי, מֵחָזָק מִמֶּנּוּ;    וְעָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן, מִגֹּזְלוֹ.

10 All my bones shall say: ‘LORD, who is like unto Thee, {N}
who deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?’

יא  יְקוּמוּן, עֵדֵי חָמָס:    אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָדַעְתִּי, יִשְׁאָלוּנִי.

11 Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I know not.

יב  יְשַׁלְּמוּנִי רָעָה, תַּחַת טוֹבָה:    שְׁכוֹל לְנַפְשִׁי.

12 They repay me evil for good; bereavement is come to my soul.

 

 

 

טו  וּבְצַלְעִי,    שָׂמְחוּ וְנֶאֱסָפוּ:
נֶאֶסְפוּ עָלַי נֵכִים,    וְלֹא יָדַעְתִּי;
קָרְעוּ    וְלֹא-דָמּוּ.

15 But when I halt they rejoice, and gather themselves together; {N}
the abjects gather themselves together against me, and those whom I know not; {N}
they tear me, and cease not;

 

 

 

כ  כִּי לֹא שָׁלוֹם, יְדַבֵּרוּ:    וְעַל רִגְעֵי-אֶרֶץ–דִּבְרֵי מִרְמוֹת, יַחֲשֹׁבוּן.

20 For they speak not peace; but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

 

 

Psalms 55:10, 24 (the enemy and division from within?)

 

י  בַּלַּע אֲדֹנָי, פַּלַּג לְשׁוֹנָם:    כִּי-רָאִיתִי חָמָס וְרִיב בָּעִיר.

10 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongue; for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

 

כד  וְאַתָּה אֱלֹהִים,    תּוֹרִדֵם לִבְאֵר שַׁחַת–
אַנְשֵׁי דָמִים וּמִרְמָה,    לֹא-יֶחֱצוּ יְמֵיהֶם;
וַאֲנִי,    אֶבְטַח-בָּךְ.

24 But Thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the nethermost pit; {N}
men of blood and deceit shall not live out half their days; {N}
but as for me, I will trust in Thee.
{P}

 

Psalms 72:9, 14

 

ט  לְפָנָיו, יִכְרְעוּ צִיִּים;    וְאֹיְבָיו, עָפָר יְלַחֵכוּ.

9 Let them that dwell in the wilderness bow before him; and his enemies lick the dust.

 

 

יד  מִתּוֹךְ וּמֵחָמָס, יִגְאַל נַפְשָׁם;    וְיֵיקַר דָּמָם בְּעֵינָיו.

14 He will redeem their soul from oppression and violence, and precious will their blood be in his sight;

 

Psalms 73:3-6 (like so many among us, in Tel Aviv and the Knesset, demonstrating for Hamas and the Gazans)

 

ג  כִּי-קִנֵּאתִי, בַּהוֹלְלִים;    שְׁלוֹם רְשָׁעִים אֶרְאֶה.

3 For I was envious at the arrogant, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked.

ד  כִּי אֵין חַרְצֻבּוֹת לְמוֹתָם;    וּבָרִיא אוּלָם.

4 For there are no pangs at their death, and their body is sound.

ה  בַּעֲמַל אֱנוֹשׁ אֵינֵמוֹ;    וְעִם-אָדָם, לֹא יְנֻגָּעוּ.

5 In the trouble of man they are not; neither are they plagued like men.

ו  לָכֵן, עֲנָקַתְמוֹ גַאֲוָה;    יַעֲטָף-שִׁית, חָמָס לָמוֹ.

6 Therefore pride is as a chain about their neck; violence covereth them as a garment.

 

Psalms 140: which I bring in full, for its relevancy

Psalms Chapter 140 תְּהִלִּים

א  לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד.

1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

ב  חַלְּצֵנִי יְהוָה, מֵאָדָם רָע;    מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵנִי.

2 Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man;

ג  אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ רָעוֹת בְּלֵב;    כָּל-יוֹם, יָגוּרוּ מִלְחָמוֹת.

3 Who devise evil things in their heart; every day do they stir up wars.

ד  שָׁנְנוּ לְשׁוֹנָם, כְּמוֹ-נָחָשׁ:    חֲמַת עַכְשׁוּב–תַּחַת שְׂפָתֵימוֹ סֶלָה.

4 They have sharpened their tongue like a serpent; vipers’ venom is under their lips. Selah

ה  שָׁמְרֵנִי יְהוָה, מִידֵי רָשָׁע–    מֵאִישׁ חֲמָסִים תִּנְצְרֵנִי:
אֲשֶׁר חָשְׁבוּ,    לִדְחוֹת פְּעָמָי.

5 Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; {N}
who have purposed to make my steps slip.

ו  טָמְנוּ גֵאִים, פַּח לִי–    וַחֲבָלִים, פָּרְשׂוּ רֶשֶׁת לְיַד-מַעְגָּל;
מֹקְשִׁים שָׁתוּ-לִי    סֶלָה.

6 The proud have hid a snare for me, and cords; they have spread a net by the wayside; {N}
they have set gins for me. Selah

ז  אָמַרְתִּי לַיהוָה, אֵלִי אָתָּה;    הַאֲזִינָה יְהוָה, קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנָי.

7 I have said unto the LORD: ‘Thou art my God'; give ear, O LORD, unto the voice of my supplications.

ח  יְהוִה אֲדֹנָי, עֹז יְשׁוּעָתִי;    סַכֹּתָה לְרֹאשִׁי, בְּיוֹם נָשֶׁק.

8 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, who hast screened my head in the day of battle,

ט  אַל-תִּתֵּן יְהוָה, מַאֲוַיֵּי רָשָׁע;    זְמָמוֹ אַל-תָּפֵק, יָרוּמוּ סֶלָה.

9 Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked; further not his evil device, so that they exalt themselves. Selah

י  רֹאשׁ מְסִבָּי–    עֲמַל שְׂפָתֵימוֹ יכסומו (יְכַסֵּימוֹ).

10 As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.

יא  ימיטו (יִמּוֹטוּ) עֲלֵיהֶם, גֶּחָלִים:    בָּאֵשׁ יַפִּלֵם; בְּמַהֲמֹרוֹת, בַּל-יָקוּמוּ.

11 Let burning coals fall upon them; let them be cast into the fire, into deep pits, that they rise not up again.

יב  אִישׁ לָשׁוֹן, בַּל-יִכּוֹן בָּאָרֶץ:    אִישׁ-חָמָס רָע–יְצוּדֶנּוּ, לְמַדְחֵפֹת.

12 A slanderer shall not be established in the earth; the violent and evil man shall be hunted with thrust upon thrust.

יג  ידעת (יָדַעְתִּי)–כִּי-יַעֲשֶׂה יְהוָה, דִּין עָנִי:    מִשְׁפַּט, אֶבְיֹנִים.

13 I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the poor, and the right of the needy.

יד  אַךְ צַדִּיקִים, יוֹדוּ לִשְׁמֶךָ;    יֵשְׁבוּ יְשָׁרִים, אֶת-פָּנֶיךָ.

14 Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto Thy name; the upright shall dwell in Thy presence. {P}

And now a word from our sponsor

 

By Steven Plaut

July 20, 2014 3:19:42 AM PDT

 

As so often happens these days, the best contemporary and timely commentary on current events can be found in the Bible.

 

The following is largely based on an article published by the controversial Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, son of the late chief rabbi Mordecai Eliyahu (and the rabbi the Far Left most loves to hate for his suggesting that people in Safed rent their apartments out to Jews and not Arabs).  But putting politics aside:

 

He begins by arguing that the fact that over 1000 rockets were fired into Israel with almost no casualties at all clearly represents (in his opinion) Divine intervention.   He notes that a single Hamas attack on Egyptian troops killed and injured more than did the 1000 plus rockets fired at the Jews.   He considers it a manifestation of the expression in prayer of the construction of a Succah of Peace over Israel and Jerusalem. 

 

He then goes on to explore the Biblical term “Hamas.”  The word Hamas appears throughout the Bible in the Hebrew text.  The first place it appears is in the story of Noah, to describe the evil of that generation.  But what exactly does the word mean?  In the authoritative Onkelos translation of Biblical text into Aramaic, Hamas is translated as “kidnapping.”  Still think the Bible is out of date?

 

In Genesis in the story of Noah it says that the earth was filled with Hamas kidnapping.   We know how this was fixed.

 

In the psalms, which are traditionally attributed to King David, the term Hamas appears 14 different times in 12 different chapters.   In Psalm 7, the behavior of the Hamas people is described.  It says that they not only attack with swords and arrows but shoot explosive fiery projectiles.   The same Psalm describes Hamas people as those who obsessively lie and as those who dig tunnels in order to cause injury to their victims.  King David writes explicitly that these tunnels will turn into the graves of the Hamas.

 

Chapter 11 of Psalms describes how the Hamas loves to shoot at innocent people, meaning women and children.  The Psalm predicts that fire and brimstone will rain down upon the Hamas.  Drones and choppers are not mentioned.  In Chapter 18 King David describes how to defeat Hamas enemies and mentions a bow of copper, which reminds us a bit of a Dome of Iron.  He predicts that his soul will be rescued from the Hamas.  In Chapter 25 the Hamas are described as people driven by obsessive blind hatred for Jews.  In Chapter 35 Psalms asks God for protection against the Hamas liars and false witnesses.  In Chapter 55 Psalms predicts that the Hamas barbarians will fight among themselves.  Chapter 72 of Psalms again predicts that Israel will be rescued from Hamas.  In Chapter 73 Hamas people are described as lazy bums and as parasites.

 

Finally in Psalm 140, Hamas is mentioned three times as evil ones even when they pretend to be seeking peace.

Wondering about Hamas Connection – Ari Bussel Thoughts Following


Negotiation with Hamas like Negotiation with Rabid Dog

John R. Houk

© July 20, 2014

 

While I was researching my last post – “Stand with Israel against Islamic Terrorists – Hamas” – I ran into a bothersome Google Search Engine situation. I was piecing together a very brief (and definitely not comprehensive) line of events that led Hamas to fire missiles at civilian targets in Israeli cities and the no-choice resulting Israel response of Operation Protective Edge led by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). Now this is what I found bothersome: somewhere in this long overdue Gaza invasion to get rid of (or at least cripple) Hamas, Israel does not share the smoking gun data connecting the Islamic terrorists that murdered in cold blood Eyal Yifrah – 19, Gilad Shaar – 16, and Naftali Fraenkel – a 16-year-old with dual Israeli-American citizenship. One has to be a numbskull to believe that the murderers – Arabs that call themselves Palestinians acting as terrorists – had not executed these teen kids.

 

The problem I am having is this: Did these Islamic Jew-haters work for Hamas, one of the terrorist organization under the PLO umbrella (now Western legitimized as the Palestinian Authority – PA) or did the Jew-haters concoct the murders on their own to gain Palestinian prestige among their family and friends which are constantly brainwashed to hate Jews? So far in my Google Search Engine research I failed to find the absolute linkage to Hamas.

 

I have no doubt that Google is one of the moron organizations that treat Israel as occupiers of Arab land rather than defenders of the ancient Jewish Homeland bequeathed by God Almighty as the Promised Land. So I would not be surprised if Google techs have programed their search engine for such queries to make Hamas a victim and Israel a perpetrator.

 

Indeed, as of yesterday the top results of searches pointed to Palestinian apologists, Leftists and incredulously Left thinking Jews that have defined a conspiracy that Prime Minister Netanyahu or the IDF or both concocted a scheme to kidnap three Jews and hold them for a while as an excuse sweep the Hamas organization out of Judea-Samaria (labeled as occupied West Bank by Arabs and the West) and then invade Gaza as an excuse to eradicate Hamas from further executions of terrorist activities against Israel.

 

I was not surprised a lying fabrication from Palestinian apologists and Leftists because that is what these guys do to persuade sympathy from gullible readers of media reporting. I was incredulous though to see Jewish pundits reputed as either definitely Left Wing and Center-Left that usually are supportive of Israel’s right to exist, BUT are under the delusion that providing undeserved land to Arabs that call themselves Palestinians will bring peace between the Arab world and Israel.

 

At this point I grew weary of finding the wording that the Google Search engine would deliver in pointing out if the Israeli government had publicly delivered the smoking gun evidence that the Islamic terrorists that murdered the three Jewish teens was specifically Hamas. So I emailed pro-Israel journalist (and a person I consider an online friend) Ari Bussel if he could point me to any specifics.

 

Ari gave a detailed account of the information he knew. Surprisingly the Israeli government has not made the details public, but Ari reports that Prime Minister Netanyahu made the information available to the relevant Heads of government which I presume includes the USA.

 

Ari’s email is good enough to post for readers to have something to think about. So this is what I am going to do. I am going to post the email exchange between Ari and I. Ari Bussel emailed a CC of my question and his own response to various others. One of those replies was CC’ed to me and I am also including that. In full disclosure I am editing the exchange to refrain from exposing the email addresses involved. And at this point includes Ari’s email even though he often includes his email address in many of his submissions to my blog.

From John Houk to Ari Bussel

Subject: I have a question

 

Dear Mr. Bussel,

 

I am writing because I am having difficulty in pinning down a reliable answer pertaining to the murders of the three teen Israeli boys. Prime Minister Netanyahu says Hamas is responsible for the murders. This accusation is absolutely believable due to the nature of the Hamas Charter to destroy Israel and kill Jews. Unsurprisingly I have come upon numerous Palestinian apologists that claim Netanyahu and the IDF conspired to kill the three teenagers for an excuse to clear Judea-Samaria of Hamas operatives and to attack Gaza. What I am surprised about is that I am reading left leaning Jewish publications and left leaning Jews agree with the Hamas accusation.

 

So my question is: Has the Prime Minister made good on publicizing the definitive proof that Hamas was responsible for the heinous murders of three Israeli teens? Google isn’t cooperating for me in balanced searches.

 

Thanks in advance if you are able to respond.

From Ari Bussel to John Houk

Subject: RE I have a question

 

Dear John,

 

Allow to start with the following:  I have not seen the evidence, and I sent a request, asking if it is possible to receive detailed information (some may be classified still, given that the two kidnappers are still in hiding and have not been caught and brought to justice yet).

 

I would also like to add that the details are no longer relevant.  Why?  Because once a lie is told, and then repeated often enough, the seeds of doubt have been planted, and even a later correction, and factual evidence will not repair the damage caused.

 

A classic case in point may be the Goldstone Report.  Anyone remembers the correction by the Judge himself?  We all remember that the Report “proved” Israel is guilty.  (Guilty of what makes no difference whatsoever, nor do refutations, line by line, fact by fact, of what was contained therein.)

 

Richard Goldstone, of course, is a Jew.

 

A person with whom I swim every day at a local Jewish Community Center (that is open to all, not only “Jews” or “Whites”) has confronted me at the very start of the abduction of the three youths, Eyal, Naftali and Gil-Ad, HY”D (may the Lord avenge their deaths), suggesting at first they were in hiding then that the Israeli Security Service (Shin-Bet) is responsible for the abduction of the three from the bus stop that Thursday afternoon.

 

He further stated they were being held at the cellars of the Shin-Bet somewhere, still alive, but did not rule out we will kill them to put the blame unto others (i.e. the “Palestinians”).

 

All this while telling me, as I was leaving in disgust, he is saying Psalms for the three boys (a common manner of praying for Jewish people). 

 

I turned around, shocked, and asked:  Why do you bother? 

 

Incidentally, the story changed as the days went by.  The boys were in hiding.  They were taken by Israel.  Etc.  All these horrible things, and yet the (meaningless) “prayer” continued.  My friend does not understand that having such ideas cannot be reconciled with being a Jewish person, one who believes in God the Almighty.

 

My fellow-swimmer is a professor, specializes in demography, writes regularly and is otherwise both a respected and known member of the Jewish community in Los Angeles.  His opinion, as “off the wall” as it may sound to some, reflects the prevailing thought of many of the Old Guard of the local American Jewry.  He is not an extremist by any measure.  He is intelligent and interesting.  And he is a reflection of our worst enemies from within.

 

In many ways, their thinking is not much different than that of Turkey’s Prime Minister.

 

Prime Minister Netanyahu presented evidence of the Hamas connection of the two kidnappers (still at large) to different heads of state around the world.

 

For many years, Hamas has been promoting the kidnapping of Israeli soldiers and Israeli citizens.  It is a protocol that has worked very well for both Hamas and Hizbollah.  It was in the summer of 2006 that Hizbollah went over the border to Israel proper, attacked an IDF patrol and kidnapped Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, HY”D.

 

[Blog Editor: I plead a learning moment. I had no idea of the meaning for ‘HY”D’. Here is the explanation for the non-Jews who love Israel:

 

May Hashem avenge his/her blood

 

This honorific "May Hashem avenge his/her blood" is used for a non-rabbinic general individual who perished as a result of anti-semitism, for example pogroms or the Holocaust. The Hebrew version is "Hashem yinkom damo" (m.) / "Hashem yinkom dama" (f.) and in the Hebrew: (f.) "ינקום דמה" \ (m.) "השם ינקום דמו." The English abbreviation is “HY"D” and in Hebrew "הי״ד."

 

Hashem

 

(Judaism) a periphrastic way of referring to God in contexts other than prayer, scriptural reading etc. because the name itself is considered too holy for such use]

 

That prompted what would later be called “The Second War in Lebanon.”  Israel received their body parts back in exchange to more than 200 terrorists.

 

Not two weeks later, Hamas, promoting the very same tactic publicly and following exactly the same manner as Hizbollah, went into Israel (via a tunnel), attacked an army base and kidnapped an Israeli soldier. 

 

That soldier was kept in a high rise building in Gaza for five years and was exchanged for more than a thousand terrorists, many who were convicted in a court of law for multiple life sentences.

 

There were other failed attempts to kidnap Israelis.  Until last month, when three Israeli boys, standing at a bus stop on their way home for the weekend, disappeared.  It took Israel several long hours until the process known as Hannibal Directive/Procedure [Wikipedia] was launched.  By that time, it was too late. 

 

Was that a red line?  Kids being kidnapped? 

 

Some excused it by saying they are “religious fanatics.”  Other said they are “Settlers” and should not even have been there (“there” is Judea and Samaria).  Easier to blame ourselves apparently for the sickness of our enemies.

 

The following day, the identity of the two kidnappers was made public by Israel and the necessary evidence was presented by PM Netanyahu to his counterparts among world leaders.

 

For eighteen days Israel, the Jewish People and people who believe in the Bible were praying to the Almighty for the safe return of the three boys.  The IDF and Israeli security services were on a search and rescue mission, leaving no stone and bush unturned.  

 

On the eighteenth day, the bodies of 16 year olds Gil-Ad and Naftali and 19 year old Eyal were discovered. 

 

Their only sin:  Being Jewish in the Jewish Homeland. 

 

(Well, that is a double sin.)

 

Celebrations erupted throughout the “Palestinian” cities and towns.

 

After all, the mother of one of the three kidnappers had stated before she raised her kids on the Quran and the Prophet, then she added, that if it turned out her son did kidnap (and/or murder) the Jews, he will be blessed and she could not be happier.  (Incidentally, she will receive money for the rest of her life as a result of the atrocity committed by her son.)

 

Theirs is a culture of death.  They glorify murder.  Thus, it is not surprising they name kindergartens, school yards, soccer fields, city squares and public institutions after such murderers.

 

The discovery was followed by a very somber day of mourning in Israel, and the three were brought to their final resting place. 

 

Israel stood in shock.

 

Sane and reasonable people everywhere were silenced at the horror of what took place.

 

Israelis stood in unity, for we are all commanded DO NOT MURDER.

 

It was at the same time that three Israelis did exactly that, violating the very commandment of the ten that guide our lives.

 

The difference could not be clearer.  They were apprehended and immediately brought to justice.  They likely will not be allowed back among civilized society for the rest of their lives (for Israel does not have a death penalty).

 

We abhor and will do everything against anyone who finds murder a reasonable and necessary course of action.  Revenge is not an excuse to capture a 16 year old and set him on fire while he is still alive.

 

And that is exactly the difference between Israel and her enemies.

 

I now return to the question you posed, albeit from a slightly larger context. 

 

Tell a lie often enough, and one starts believing in it.

 

Our greatest enemy is confusion, and see how easy it is to plant the seeds of doubt:

 

Maybe the Israelis kidnapped the three boys?

 

The Israelis will stop at nothing, as long as it serves their purpose.

 

The greater good – the ability to subjugate the local population to invasion, torture, persecution, etc. – is justified.  Sacrificing three boys is a very small price to pay.

 

Israeli Settlers are extremist ideologists.  They will follow the dictum of the Torah to sacrifice their own sons!

 

All that Israel wanted is an excuse to invade Gaza.

 

Israel is no different from the Nazis!

 

I must admit, it is very difficult to fight when surrounded with absolute darkness.

 

Nothing makes sense. 

 

Israel does not need ruses or excuses.  All that Israel tries to do is live peacefully in the only Jewish country in the world, its Biblical and eternal homeland.  We are not raised to hate Arabs because they are Muslim.  We want to live in peace with our neighbors.  In fact, our Torah directs us time and time again to remember we were a foreign people in Egypt, thus, we must treat the foreigner, widowed and orphaned among us with extreme care.

 

Israel does not kidnap and torture its own citizens, be they Jewish, Muslim or otherwise.  For that there are numerous human rights organizations and an Israeli Supreme Court that see that even “torture” designed to obtain information to thwart activities such as terrorist attacks is done within a certain framework.

 

In Israel, incidentally, there can be no secrets.  Now more than ever before, everything is public knowledge.  I have long advocated that even field security within the IDF needs to be strengthened, since everything is available on-line or on the radio or tv.

 

A secret such as this (“Israel kidnaps, tortures and murders its own youths in order to fight Hamas”) is too big to hide.  Surely someone, on some moral, ethical or other grounds go public with it.

 

Israel does not need excuses to conquer Gaza and eliminate Hamas.  Hamas has vouched to destroy Israel, and has been actively pursuing this goal.  Israel must fight Hamas with all her might, although for too long she did not do so.

 

We can go on and analyze each and every statement above (italicized), and others like it, and soon we will get to the conclusion that they are all a mirror reflection of the enemy.

 

It is the enemy who regularly sends its women and children and young men to act as human bombs.

 

It is the enemy who uses civilians as human shields.

 

It is Hamas that sits in bunkers underneath hospitals, kindergartens, schools and mosques.  (Fatah terrorists are those who, likewise, ran into the Church of Nativity in Bethlehem, defiled and desecrated the place knowing Israel will not dare touch a holy place.)

 

It is Hamas that fires hundreds of rockets a day directly at civilian populations, in order to kill, maim and instill fear and terror in the hearts and minds of as many Israelis as possible.

 

Israel’s enemies, including Hamas and Fatah and the other tribes that constitute modern day “Palestinians,” regularly advocate the abduction and killing of Israelis.

 

In short, all these statements are an exact description of what is commonplace within our enemies.

 

So the question to be asked is not the minutia, rather the truth.

 

How does one separate truth from fiction, reality from a thousand and one Arabian fantasies?

 

My colleague and partner, award-winning investigative journalist and author Norma Zager and I have recently embarked on a series called “How not to be Conned.”  It is part of our “Conversations Eye to Eye” on Christian radio on the Crawford Broadcasting network of 23 stations across the USA.

 

I will send you a powerpoint of the presentation we recently gave at a local church on the same topic. 

 

I am also including a segment on Christian TV with a friend of mine from Israel, Prof. Abraham Sion of Ariel University (in those “Occupied-Occupied Territories,” otherwise known as Judea and Samaria; double-Occupied since all of Israel is “Occupied”).

 

Fighting Israel with Hitler’s Weapons:

Also, I am forwarding an e-mail from a blogger in Israel.  (Appended here below.)  It also discusses exactly the same matter.

 

You see, you raised a most important question.  Not the actual proof (that exists, but it will make little difference in terms of the lies being floated around), rather how to separate truth from fiction, how to know if something is true or not.

 

Whether by Israeli enemies or self-haters, our job turns to be most challenging.  We are thinking individuals, and we are easily confused.  Likely because we hear the lies time and again.  Many times the lies come from “reliable” sources (“I am a Jew” or “I am Israeli” or “I served in the IDF” or “I am a son of Holocaust survivors” or from organizations with like names “Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace,” “Jews for Peace,” …).

 

We are not sure any more what is truth and what is a lie.  What is good and what is bad.

 

Thus, Norma and I always start and end as follows:

 

What you need is a benchmark.  It can be God.  It can be the Bible.  It can be your children.  Or your spouse.  It has to be something that for you is the absolute truth.

 

When something then does not make sense, for instance, when you are told it is dark now, yet you look and the sun is at a zenith and your watch shows 1PM, pinch yourself.

 

Check what you are told (“it is dark outside” or “Israel kidnapped and murdered the three kids”) against that is most dear to your heart.  God.  The Bible.  Your children.  Your spouse.

 

And then you will know the answer.  Deep in your heart.  In your mind.  In all your senses.

 

The fight is difficult, the confusion easily gaining the upper hand.  Thus we must stand ready, knowing our path is right, believing with all our might and putting all our trust as we are like blind persons or a busy highway, a tiny light engulfed in dense darkness.

 

There is no doubt we will prevail, but the fight is not easy.

 

It was on July 3rd at the presentation we gave at a local church that I realized that the “Benchmark” or “One’s Absolute Truth” slide was very simple:  At a Church, The Truth is Jesus, a Jewish Rabbi.

 

So compare the doubts and the statements by Jewish-self-haters and other enemies of the People of the Bible (i.e. us, the Saturday and the Sunday People) to what Jesus has said, and you will have the answer and the proof.

 

You asked a seemingly “simple question” and clearly did not expect such an answer.

 

Yet, you managed, as you often do with your preface for every posting of ours, to raise awareness, to focus the attention to bring about truths that need to see the light of day, be read and discussed.

 

For that – as always – I thank you.

 

I took the liberty to add a few people to this e-mail, among them:  my colleague, Norma Zager, Pastor Lorraine Coconato in whose Church we gave the most recent talk, Leehy Shaer, the aunt of Gil-Ad HY”D (one of the three kidnapped and murdered youths) who lives in LA, Prof. Abraham Sion of those Occupied-Occupied areas of Zion Jerusalem, Dr. Daryl Temkin, who taught me how easy it is to float a lie and how difficult it is to combat the aftermath, and my friend Danny Seaman from Jerusalem, who for ten years headed the Government Press Office in Israel.  There is no better person that him among us – the soldiers on the front line, the guards on Israel’s walls.

Actually Mr. Bussel I did expect such a passionate email response. It is one reason I emailed you. I knew you would give me an honest answer that is also pro-Israel. I need to take some time to digest the entire email including attachments. With that in mind may I have your permission to post your email response? And I also welcome the input of anyone else you sent an email to.

 

Thanks for your time and love of Israel,

 

John

Dear John,

 

With thanks.  Please feel free to extract segments and/or use as you see fit.  There is plenty of information therein.

 

I do expect an answer, as the Consul General of Israel for the Western Region (USA) was blind copied on this e-mail and promised a reply.

 

This said, I am trying to put as little pressure on him as possible, given the current situation and his on-going responsibilities as the highest ranking Israeli representative for the West Coast.

 

Sunday morning we will be at a Church where he will be speaking. 

 

Always,

 

Ari Bussel

Dear Ari,

 

Thank you for copying me on your informative article to John, and I would like to add the following:

 

The Palestinian Arabs have adopted and mastered Nazi propaganda. Goebbels could have learned some tricks from them. They use the same narrative, same cartoons and same repetition of lies and falsehoods, blaming the Jews for almost all world evils. Just to give one example: When Germany decided to invade Poland on the eve of WW2, it came up with a false story that Polish guards at the border between Poland and Germany killed German soldiers. The fact was that German troops killed some fellow German soldiers and blamed the killing on the Poles as a pretext to invade Poland. See how similar Arab propaganda is.

 

Also, in no Arab country one can find a constitution safeguarding civil rights. In no Arab country, including areas governed by the Palestinian Authority, no Jew can live or have any rights. Yet the Palestinian Arabs blame Israel falsely for all the evils that exist in their own countries and territories. They work around the clock to discredit Israel, but unfortunately, Israel is hardly engaging in any way in refuting those allegations. The outcome is that if the Arabs repeat an allegation one thousand times and there is no one on the other side who bothers to refute them, they are then, in the minds of many people, regarded as facts.  The worst of those who engage in discrediting Israel are often anti Semite Jews.

 

Best

Abraham

I am very grateful to Ari Bussel and the later email by Abraham Sion for their input regarding Palestinian apologist and Left Wing propaganda that wrongfully implicates Israel as perpetually at fault for all acts of violence against Israel and the nation’s Jewish citizens.
