And Obama Wants Americans to Trust Iran?


John R. Houk

© August 23, 2015

In Iran the media that shows up on television is sanctioned by the government. THAT MEANS if something broadcast on Iranian television says “Death to America” or “Death to Israel,” that pronouncement is sanctioned by the Iranian government.

United with Israel has found a one minute 26 second piece that is billed as Iran imagining the conquest of Jerusalem. The city of Jerusalem is not only the legal capital city of Israel it was the City of David long before Muslim conquest in 638 A.D. shortly after which the conquering Muslim Caliphs built a Mosque followed by another Mosque on the Jewish Temple Mount where the Holy of Holies once resided until Romans ripped it down renaming Jerusalem a Latin name and the Land of the Jews as Palestine.

The Iranian video shows a massive Shi’ite Muslim army above Jerusalem preparing to pour down on the city. There are some words in Farsi which I wish United with Israel would have translated. I highly suspect those Farsi words were not complimentary to Israel or Jews or both.

Although the United with Israel news article does not translate the Farsi text, the Jerusalem Post does:

The chilling propaganda clip calls on Muslims to unite for the “inevitable” destruction of Israel, which is to be “erased from the annals of history.”

The video shows soldiers and operatives from the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, the Iranian-backed Shia Badr Organization, Hezbollah, and the Hamas movement’s Kassam Brigades.

“The youth will definitely see that day when it comes,” the graphic reads.

Earlier this month, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei released a new book titled Palestine, which outlines his case for why Israel must be wiped out and how. “The solution is a one-state formula,” he writes.

This is the kind of nation President Barack Hussein Obama wants to trust with a deal. Contact your Congressman and Senator – especially if they are Democrats – to strike down this Iran Nuke Deal.

WATCH: Iran Video Shows Muslim Conquest of Jerusalem

United with Israel

August 20, 2015

Iran has released a new, high quality video depicting its eagerly-anticipated conquest of Jerusalem as part of a campaign to obliterate Israel.

Iran has been very vocal about its intentions to destroy Israel, especially in light of the development of the nuclear deal. What it is trying to do now is rally support for its cause among the Muslim people.

If the nuclear deal goes through, Iran will receive billions of dollars that it will use to fund terror in the Middle East, especially against Israel. The deal MUST be stopped.

VIDEO: ‘Israel Must Be Obliterated’: New Iranian Video Imagines Muslim Invasion of Jerusalem

 

Posted by Yankee Apocalypse

Published on Aug 18, 2015

Aug. 18, 2015 (The Blaze) Iranian Video Imagines Islamic Takeover of Jerusalem. Video Title: “Preparation of the complete destruction of Israel by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Islamic Revolution in Iran”

A new video out of Iran presents the imagined scenario of Jerusalem being conquered by a military alliance of the country’s Revolutionary Guard forces and Hezbollah and Hamas terrorists, a Jewish news site reported Tuesday.

Quoting the Middle East terrorism research organization the Investigative Project, the Algemeiner reported that the video was released two weeks after the Iran nuclear deal was announced.

The video showed the fighters preparing for battle with their gear, headbands, shoes and weapons, then descending on Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly pointed to Iran’s continued sponsorship of international terrorist groups including Hezbollah and to its dedication to destroying Israel as two reasons he believes the deal is dangerous for Israel.

The Algemeiner detailed the lineup of fighters portrayed in the video which, according to the Investigative Project, was produced by the Islamic Revolution Design House: “One dons the IRGC [Revolutionary Guards] insignia on his left arm, another the emblem of the Iran-backed Iraqi Shia Badr Organization. Yet a third dons a headband bearing the Lebanese Hezbollah logo, and a fourth is seen clad in Hamas’ characteristic balaclava and the Qassam Brigades green headband.”

The animated video shows the soldiers approaching Jerusalem, with the iconic yellow dome of the Dome of the Rock situated on the Temple Mount, the holiest site in Judaism and third-holiest site in Islam.

Later in the video, a wider shot is presented, showing dozens of fighters on a hilltop across from the holy city.

At the end, Persian script appears saying “Israel must be obliterated,” or literally, “erased from the annals of history … and the youth will definitely see that day when it comes,” the Algemeiner noted.

It’s not only the “Islamic Revolution Design House” that favors destroying Israel. The same sentiment has been expressed recently by Iran’s supreme leader.

In a speech following the nuclear agreement, Khamenei praised Iranian demonstrators who in July chanted “death to Israel” and “death to the U.S.” during protests marking the pro-Palestinian Al Quds Day commemoration. – by Sharona Schwartz.

Sign the Petition to Oppose the Nuclear Deal with Iran

The US Congress must reject the dangerous deal with Iran and ensure that sanctions remain in force until the nuclear threat is completely eliminated.

I strongly oppose any deal with Iran that allows for easing sanctions before the nuclear threat has been completely eliminated. Allowing Iran to enrich uranium without being subject to ‘anytime, anywhere’ inspections is extremely dangerous and unacceptable. This bad deal with Iran is far worse than no deal and must be rejected.

New ‘Khamenei’ Book Outlines Slow, Painful Strategy to Destroy Israel


Ali Khamenei Twitter Screen Capture: “9 key questions about the elimination of Israel

Ted Belman of Israpundit cross posted an Algemeiner post this should be used in Congress to show one of many probable reasons America can’t trust the paper Iran signed to honor a nuke deal ensuring peace in the 21st century. I wonder where in history in the 20th century the world heard a similar thought.

At any rate the Algemeiner staff write about Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has written some kind of book entitled “Palestine” in which he outlines the destruction of Israel. Ironically the plan doesn’t (at least openly) refer to nuke warheads but rather to numerous tedious attacks that wear down Jews so much they simply immigrate out of Israel to find a safer life. In case don’t realize it, a small nuke warhead can be designed that does not entail the destruction of massive amounts of land. It is entirely possible to utilize a limited impact warhead strike.

New ‘Khamenei’ Book Outlines Slow, Painful Strategy to Destroy Israel

By ALGEMEINER Staff

Posted by Ted Belman

August 3, 2015 3:43 pm

Israpundit

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei outlined his excruciating and patient strategy to annihilate the State of Israel in a new volume entitled “Palestine,” New York-based think tank the Gatestone Institute revealed last week.

Rather than wiping Israel off the map through conventional warfare, Khamenei recommends an everlasting chain of low-intensity attacks that will ultimately make life unbearable for Israelis, who would largely respond, the supreme leader hypothesizes, by packing their bags and relocating themselves out of the country.

Ultimately, the international community would address the conflict whereby some mechanism would be implemented that transforms the “cancerous tumor” of Israel and, ostensibly, the Palestinian controlled territories into another single entity under Muslim rule where the Jews who cannot prove “genuine roots” in their old home country would have to leave and the rest would have to remain as a “protected minority” in the new state of Palestine. The Gatestone Institute, which obtained a copy of the 416-page edition, did not explain the criteria necessary to prove “genuine roots.”

The supreme leader’s top three reasons for wanting to destroy the Jewish state include: its occupation of Jerusalem, its unflagging belligerence against Muslims and its intimate relationship with the “Great Satan,” the United States.

Khamenei also argues that if Jews would begin to leave Israel as a result of sustained and growing threats, the U.S. may withdraw its support for the Jewish State.

Lucky for Khamenei, President Barack Obama is already responsible for a massive rupture in U.S.-Israeli relations, the worst in a decade according to the Gatestone Institute.

In the new book, Khamenei also abhors the fact that the Jewish state was established on lands once under Muslim control — most recently, Ottoman — and he wishes to undo that wrong. Planning ahead, he also hopes to liberate large swaths of Europe, about a third of China, all of India and parts of the Philippines and Thailand. It is unclear what he would do with property once owned by Muslims in the United States that has since been sold to non-Muslims.

Khamenei’s latest iteration of his plan for Israel was published on the heels of an agreement Iran signed with world powers from China to the United States that will lift international sanctions in exchange for some restrictions on and monitoring of its declared nuclear program, which Iran largely developed in secret. The country has intercontinental missiles apparently capable of striking Israel, and past intelligence has indicated that Iran had researched fitting one of those missiles with a nuclear warhead.

Iranian leaders regularly and openly call for the destruction of Israel. The ideas outlined by the Gatestone Institute that appear in “Palestine” echoed an article linked to by the English Twitter handle widely attributed to Khamenei himself, called “9 key questions about the elimination of Israel.

Jonathan Ginsburg posted a comment to my post on July 31 I’d rather go to War than Make a Deal with a Devil’. Ginsburg’s comment links heavily to a blog called Strong and Resolute. I’m going to step into the land of presumption and assume the blog is operated by Jonathan Ginsburg. The blog in question seems to me to be a Pro-Israel and anti-Leftist Jewish in its themes. That works for me.

The Ginsburg comment relates the duplicity of Obama toward Israel with some very correct criticism for Obama’s Iran Nuke Deal.

To understand Obama’s catastrophic Iran deal, this is what you need to know. Very simple.

http://strongandresolute.blogspot.com/2015/08/onlymuslimlivesmattertoobama.html

He hates Israel, Christians, the West and just wants to empower Iran and radical Islam everywhere. All the rest is diplomatic jihad. See the dozens of examples of proof at that site [linked above].

You believe the delusional who tell you Iran doesn’t really mean “death to USA and Israel”? Iran WILL absolutely use nukes to reestablish the Persian Empire and for religious reasons, to have the necessary catastrophe to have the hidden 12th Imam emerge. They are willing to suffer catastrophic losses for these “honors” http://strongandresolute.blogspot.com/2015/07/iran-willing-to-use-nuks-vs-israel-even.html

Obama’s deal makes war much more likely and much better alternatives abound. It must be defeated. Read more details about the above here http://strongandresolute.blogspot.com/2015/08/why-is-iran-deal-so-horrible-and-must.html

Every Nazi’s main excuse was “I was just following orders”. How is that different than any of these Democrats saying “I am voting for a deal guaranteeing the worst terrorist nation on earth nuclear weapons because I am just following my president?” The very sad reality is American Jews and America did nothing to stop Hitler until it was too late for 6 million just 70 years ago and we are witnessing the same thing again. This is the most important vote of your lives and history will remember you primarily by how you vote on this. Obama’s deal makes war much more likely and much better alternatives abound. It must be defeated.

Is Obama Promising to Protect Iranian Nukes from Sabotage?


John R. Houk

© July 23, 2015

President Barack Hussein Obama has hailed the P5 + 1 nuke deal with Iran as a peace in our time deal. AND YET Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has these sentiments for Israel and America:

Iran’s supreme leader on Saturday hailed the Iranian masses for demanding the destruction of Israel and America, and said he hoped that God would answer their prayers.

In a viciously anti-US speech delivered in Tehran four days after Iran and the world powers signed an accord designed to thwart Iran’s nuclear program, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei praised “the slogans of the people of Iran” which “indicated what directions they’re heading for,” according to the English translation of his speech by Iran’s Press TV.

At Al-Quds day rallies last week, Khamenei noted appreciatively, “You heard ‘Death to Israel’, ‘Death to the US.’ You could hear it. The whole nation was shaken by these slogans. It wasn’t only confined to Tehran. The whole of the nation, you could hear, that was covered by this great movement. So we ask Almighty God to accept these prayers by the people of Iran.” (Iran’s Khamenei hails his people for demanding death to America and Israel; By TIMES OF ISRAEL STAFF AND AFP; Times of Israel; July 18, 2015, 4:37 pm)

Hmm … Since those of who pay attention KNOW President BHO is a compulsive liar to American voters which includes his used car sell-job about the Iran Nuke Deal, Iran will develop nukes. Obama has informed the gullible that Khamenei is a politician and the old Ayatollah is just playing to his constituents.

Those who believe Obama that Khamenei is merely playing to his Iranian supporters should know that the Supreme Leader was not elected to a political office. Rather Khamenei acquired the leadership mantle after the death of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. This Supreme Leader junk is the typical blend of Islamic Mosque and State. The Iranian Mosque-State theopolitical leader calls the shots and is answerable to Allah, the Hidden 12th Imam and perhaps the Guardian Council theopolitical Ayatollahs.

So Obama lies and Khamenei proclaims Iran’s reason to exist to destroy Israel and the USA for the good of Islam to spread globally. With that in mind check out how Obama’s participation in P5 + 1 has promised to Iran pertaining to the theopolitical republic’s nuclear agenda:

I know I wrote this somewhere before – either on this blog or on Twitter: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Iran requires the P5+1 countries to protect Iranian nuclear facilities against sabotage by Israel.

However, one provision of the deal has received scant coverage. Blogs, specialized media outlets, the Israeli and some Jewish press have reported on a troubling section of the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) that commits the signatories to help protect Iran from sabotage of its nuclear facilities. But the popular press has not widely covered this troubling element of the deal.

Arutz Sheva reports on Article 10 of the agreement:

In the deal the world powers obligate to “co-operation in the form of training courses and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to prevent, protect and respond to nuclear security threats to nuclear facilities and systems as well as to enable effective and sustainable nuclear security and physical protection systems.” Leaving no doubts about the intentions, the text then promises “co-operation through training and workshops to strengthen Iran’s ability to protect against, and respond to nuclear security threats, including sabotage.”

Reports are that these clauses were not present in the interim JPOA signed in April. This was apparently a last minute concession to Iran.

Since the United States and its Western allies are signatories to this agreement, the “protection” and “response” would not be to any action undertaken by them. The same can be said for China and Russia who would be unlikely to sabotage Iran anyway. Therefore, the “nuclear security threats, including sabotage” must refer to potential actions by Israel, believed to be party to previous acts of sabotage against Iran’s nuclear program.

In other words, the United States will be protecting Iran, whose leaders frequently chant “Death to America,” from Israel, frequently described as “America’s best friend in the region.”

Obama has always wanted an excuse to go to war with Israel. Now he has one. (ICYMI: P5+1 agreed to protect Iranian nuke program against Israel; Posted by Carl in Jerusalem; Israel Matzav; 7/23/15)

Israel is backed into an existential corner. Obama apparently is not only committed to destabilizing the Middle East and Muslim dominated nations, there is all the appearance Obama is in cahoots with Russia, China, UK, France, Germany and the unanimity of the United Nations Security Council will join Iran in punishingin reality destroying – the Jewish State of Israel. I guess that is Obama giving diplomacy and negotiation every opportunity to work no matter the consequences.

The truth of the matter is Israel has to do something militarily even if the Western world joins the despotism inherent in the Eastern world as well as the Muslim world to take on that tiny sliver of land that is ONLY a portion God promised to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. OR Israel can wait until Iran designs WMD loaded ICBMs tactically aimed to only destroy Jewish population centers.

OR Congress can override any Obama veto and negate his idiotic deal that at best Iran becomes a nuke power in ten years, or at worst the Iranian Twelver Ayatollahs laugh at the Dem Party/Obama sell-outs as they arm nuke WMDs in a very short unanticipated time beyond the belief of American statists among both Dems and Republicans who believe Iran is years from creating a nuke warhead.

A Congress rejection of Obama’s nuke deal with Iran should be followed with serious talk of impeachment if Obama punishes Israel for attacking Iranian nuke locations.

AND so I really enjoyed the ideas of David Rubin who lays out five reasons for Israel to attack Iran.

Five Reasons to Attack Iran

By David Rubin

7/15/2015, 2:07 PM

Arutz Sheva 7 – Israel National News

Blogs- Zion’s Corner

“If someone comes to kill you, get up early to kill him first.” (Talmud Sanhedrin 72:1)

As details of the agreement with Iran continue to emerge, it becomes more and more evident that the deal is an existential danger to the survival of the State of Israel. While it is seems clear that US President Barack Obama will be preparing a compensation package to placate Israel and other concerned nations in the Middle East, this will only increase the arms race in the region, thereby making nuclear conflict more likely, as the Persian Gulf nations will now feel compelled to achieve nuclear capability to counter the Iranian threat.

There is only one realistic way of stopping that nightmare scenario – an Israeli preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities, with logistic support provided by Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf nations. Such support from concerned Sunni Muslim nations would be covert, but would provide a cushion to counter the expected international condemnation against any Israeli military offensive. Sadly, there will be those Israelis who will warn against ruffling American feathers by launching an attack which would effectively scuttle the agreement, but such warnings should be ignored. The deal with Iran certainly cannot be relied on to protect Israel, and therefore, a preemptive action should be ordered ASAP for the following reasons:

1. There will be no surprise inspections of the Iranian nuclear facilities. Giving twenty-four days advance notice gives them sufficient time to hide the evidence of nuclear weapons production.

2. The Parchin military plant and the Bushehr reactor, where substantial covert nuclear activity has taken place, are not even mentioned in the deal.

3. The immediate removal of sanctions and the subsequent infusion of vast billions to Iran’s coffers will lead to a sharp increase in Iran’s already substantial support for Hamas, Hezbollah, and other terrorist organizations in the region.

4. The longer Israel waits, the more complicated a preemptive strike will become, both politically and militarily.

5. An early and effective lightning strike, while risky, will forestall a massive Middle East nuclear arms race.

If one is to believe the repeated claims of Israel’s political leadership proclaiming that “Israel will know how to defend itself”, there comes a time that bold action must be taken, despite the negative political reaction that is sure to come, at least publicly. However, the private praise for a successful operation will also pour in from every nation that has felt itself threatened by the madmen in Teheran.

Wishing Israel’s political leadership the wisdom and especially, the courage to know how and when to do what is clearly necessary!

The new government’s war on BDS


Is the global Antisemitism snowballing in the Western World’s democratic nations grown so bad that tiny Israel is becoming diplomatically isolated?

The new government’s war on BDS

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

06/04/2015

Jerusalem Post

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government is less than a month old, but it’s already apparent that it is different from its predecessors. And if it continues on its current diplomatic trajectory, it may do something that its six predecessors failed to accomplish. Netanyahu’s new government may improve Israel’s position internationally.

The stakes are high. Over the years, Israel has largely concentrated its efforts on developing the tools to contend with its military challenges. But as we have seen over the past decade and a half, Israel’s capacity to fight and defeat its enemies is not limited principally by the IDF’s war-fighting capabilities.

Israel’s ability to defend itself and its citizens is constrained first and foremost by its shrinking capacity to defend itself diplomatically. Its enemies in the diplomatic arena have met with great success in their use of diplomatic condemnation and intimidation to force Israel to limit its military operations to the point where it is incapable of defeating its enemies outright.

The flagship of the diplomatic war against Israel is the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

Participants in the movement propagate and disseminate the libelous claim that Israel’s use of force in self-defense is inherently immoral and illegal. Over the years BDS activists’ assaults on Israel’s right to exist have become ever more shrill and radical. So, too, whereas just a few years ago their operations tended to be concentrated around military confrontations, today they are everyday occurrences. And their demands become greater and more openly anti-Semitic from week to week and day to day.

Consider the events of the past seven days alone.

Late last week Israel fended off a major international effort led by Palestinian Authority Soccer Federation chairman and former terrorist chief Jibril Rajoub to expel it from the Fédération Internationale de Football Association. Not only is Rajoub a man with blood on his hands. The Fatah luminary is admired by the Israeli far-Left while also being a favorite of Qatar, the chief state sponsor of the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

Rajoub is sympathetically inclined toward enabling Hamas in Gaza to expand its presence in Judea and Samaria.

Before the government had a chance to sigh in relief that FIFA was settled, Britain’s National Union of Students voted to join the BDS movement. This means that the anti-Israel demonstrations and assaults that take place several times a week at Britain’s universities will now take place under the NUS banner.

Also Wednesday, the French telecom giant Orange’s CEO Stéphane Richard told reporters in Cairo that he wishes to cut off his contract with Israel’s Partner telecommunications company, one of Israel’s largest cellular telephone services providers.

Richard was apparently coerced into making his statement by the Egyptian BDS movement which has threatened to boycott Orange’s subsidiary in Egypt due to its contract with Partner.

Tuesday it was reported that last month the Dutch government issued a travel advisory to its citizens traveling in Israel. In an act of anti-Jewish inversion now common in the Western discourse about Israel and its enemies, the Dutch government warned that Jews in Judea and Samaria constitute a threat to Dutch travelers because they throw stones “toward Palestinian and foreign vehicles.”

In the US, the Anti-Defamation League reported that this past academic year there was a 38 percent rise in anti-Israel events on college campuses over the previous year. The number of BDS campaigns doubled over the previous academic year.

By ADL’s count, there were 520 anti-Israel events on campuses. BDS campaigns were initiated on 29 campuses.

At the UN, Tuesday “The Palestinian Return Center,” Hamas’s European chapter, was granted official status as a recognized nongovernmental organization by the UN’s Commission on NGOs. Now, thanks to the commission, Hamas terrorists can participate in UN meetings, have full access to UN facilities and wear their new, official UN badges.

Incidentally, the same commission rejected a request by ZAKA to receive the same status. ZAKA is an Israeli NGO that provides first aid and handles the remains of terrorism victims and victims of major disasters in Israel and worldwide.

Also at the UN, Leila Zerrougui, the envoy for children in armed conflicts, is pushing to get the IDF added to the blacklist of groups that harm children.

Boko Haram, Islamic State, al-Qaida and the Taliban are among the current names of the list.

Wednesday Republican Sen. Ted Cruz sent a pointed letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemning Zerrougui’s actions. Cruz threatened, “Congress will have no choice but to reassess the United States’ relationship with the United Nations and consider serious consequences if you choose to take this action.”

In contrast to Cruz’s position, in his interview with Channel 2 broadcast Tuesday, US President Barack Obama indicated that due to the rising tide of anti-Israel sentiment and campaigns, if Israel doesn’t make unreciprocated concessions to the PA then the administration will have no choice but to join the anti-Israel UN bandwagon.

The time has come, then, for Israel to take the wheels off the wagon.

For the past dozen years or so, pro-Israel activists in the US in particular have been fighting an uphill, lonely battle against the organizations promoting the BDS movement. Among their top complaints has been the constant refrain that the Israeli government has undermined their actions by standing silent or denying what was happening or treating Israel’s defenders as the moral equivalents of its adversaries.

To some degree, the reticence of the Foreign Ministry was understandable. The BDS Israel haters often claim that they wage political and economic warfare against Israel and isolate and humiliate Israel supporters in the West to promote peace.

This claim has always been ridiculous. You can’t support peace and boycott Jewish-owned businesses in all or parts of Israel. You can’t support peace and boycott Israeli students and professors and dance troupes.

But so long as the word “peace” has been involved, or the boycotters have pretended that they are only referring to Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem, the Foreign Ministry has by and large taken them at face value and pretended that their smear operation is nothing to worry about.

To the extent they have tried to deal with the growing hate Israel phenomenon, they have run away from its essence. Instead, our senior diplomats have said that the best way to combat BDS is by rebranding Israel as the start-up, gay, friendly state with great beaches.

And largely as a result of this self-induced paralysis and blindness, pro-Israel activists have been isolated.

Jewish anti-Israel organizations such as J Street, Open Hillel and the New Israel Fund in the US, and European governments and government- funded organizations in Europe have operated largely free from criticism by official Israeli voices unwilling to take sides in the debate about the country’s right to exist and defend itself.

All the while, Israel’s diplomatic standing has gone from weak to incapacitated.

Against this backdrop, statements and actions by the new Netanyahu government are encouraging because, unlike its predecessors, it seems to have stopped playing the fool.

At the outset of this week’s cabinet meeting, Netanyahu spoke out angrily and specifically against the BDS movement and warned that Israel must not blame itself for the BDS haters’ assaults against it.

As he put it, “The last thing we need to do is to bow our heads and ask where we went wrong, where we erred. We have done nothing wrong and we have not erred. We are not a perfect country; we do not pretend to be such, but they are setting standards for us that are both twisted and higher than those for any other country, any other democracy.”

Wednesday Netanyahu assailed the British student union’s decision to join the BDS movement.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked excoriated the BDS movement at the Knesset, stating openly that it is the new Jew hatred.

Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely has translated this new position into action. Among other things, this week she instructed Israel’s ambassador to Switzerland to formally demand that the Swiss government and the Zurich municipality rescind their financial support for the planned Breaking the Silence conference this month in Zurich. The purpose of the conference, like the purpose of the foreign-funded group more generally, is to demonize and libel the IDF.

So it appears that the government has decided to finally go on offense. But if this is true, then much more can and must be done immediately.

Take the Dutch travel advisory for instance. Israel wasted no time in condemning Holland’s move. But the Dutch statement was just the tip of the iceberg.

Holland spends millions every year to directly and indirectly finance organizations whose sole purpose is to demonize Israel and Israelis. The Dutch government paid a lot of money to invent lies about Israel and its Jews that then formed the basis of its malicious, bigoted travel advisory.

The Israeli embassy at the Hague as well as the Foreign Ministry must demand not only a retraction of the travel warning. They must demand an immediate cessation of this subversive, adversarial campaign.

So, too, while the British government responded with embarrassment to the BDS vote of the NUS, the fact is that the British government holds responsibility for the strength and radicalism of the BDS movement in Britain. Like Holland, the UK spends millions every year financing NGOs whose purpose is to undermine Israeli sovereignty, demonize the IDF, attack Israel’s right to exist and fund Palestinian terrorists.

Every year, the British government funds dozens of Israeli and Palestinian-registered NGOs whose purpose is to make Israel into an international pariah unable to wage wars of self-defense without risking war crimes tribunals, economic boycotts and international humiliation.

Rather than sufficing with expressions of thanks to the Cameron government for distancing itself from the student union’s boycott of Israel, the government must demand the cessation of direct and indirect British governmental funding of these groups and their campaigns.

The BDS movement is a proxy war. It is being waged against Israel not only by deep-pocketed Arab governments which fund the NGOs that carry the battle to the streets. It is also being waged by hypocritical leftist donors in the US and by supposedly friendly European governments.

The government has taken the first steps in beating back this onslaught. But the hour is late and the stakes are high. The BDS movement is a strategic threat because as it gets stronger, Israel’s ability to wage war on the military battlefield becomes further constrained and the threats to Israel’s economy and social fabric grow. BDS must be defeated piece by piece in an unrelenting offensive that attacks its sources and puts it out of business. It won’t be easy. It won’t be genteel.

But if the government doesn’t submit to the diplomatic urge to be polite, it stands a chance of making matters better, for a change.

A Moral Distinction

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent: 8/9/2014 8:11 PM

 

To hear Obama, his administration and Secretary of State John Kerry say that they were “appalled” by the “disgraceful act” of the United Nations School in Gaza being bombed on August 3rd by Israeli Defense Forces, after the IDF warned residents in advance of this attack, shows Obama’s and Kerry’s willingness to distort and misrepresent the facts and the reality of the situation, as they exploit the peace process through their thinly veiled anti-Semitic positions, in a vile, dishonest and stupid manner. They are so anxious to achieve peace at any cost, that they make no moral distinction between Hamas and Israel, which, in and of itself, is unconscionable and shameful.

 

Yes, it was a terrible scene, the dead Palestinian children. And yet, rather than condemn the Hamas terror government for starting this conflict, for firing missiles from behind the U.N. School, for hiding stockpiles of weapons near schools, mosques and hospitals and for abducting and murdering three Israeli teenagers, John Kerry offered a cease-fire deal that heavily favored Hamas and did nothing to ensure Israel’s security, while Pierre Krahenbuhl, UN official, condemned Israel’s act of self-defense as a “serious violation of international law”.

 

What then were Hamas’ attacks on Israel? Aren’t Israeli lives just as precious as Palestinian lives? And, isn’t it time for the U.S. and the U.N. to remove Hamas from the Palestinian-Israeli equation permanently?

 

During WWII, the Free World, the U.S. and the Allies did not wring their hands over hundreds of thousands of civilians killed by the fire-bombs at Dresden and the nuclear weapons used on Japan, because they were struggling to survive against the onslaught of the extreme evil of fascism, just as Israel now struggles against the horrific evil of Islamofascism. Israel’s counterattacks are warranted, especially in light of Islamofascist death squads recently using tunnels to mount attacks inside Israel.

 

Although Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu states that Israel’s war is with Hamas and not the Palestinian people, it is hard to be too sympathetic towards a people who repeatedly elected Hamas and exiled the Palestinian Authority to the West Bank. The Palestinian people chose to stay in Gaza, because by and large they are in complete agreement with the Hamas charter that seeks Israel’s destruction. So, the problem is with the Palestinian people for giving power to Hamas, who are terrorists to the core.

 

Turki al-Faisal, former Intelligence Chief for Saudi Arabia, recently stated, “Hamas readiness to cause a great deal of suffering … clearly shows Hamas is irresponsible.”

 

As Prime Minister Netanyahu stated on August 6, 2014 (Fox News), “We’ve gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent civilian casualties. Hamas has gone to extraordinary lengths to cause civilian casualties. Imagine your home, your country targeted by death squads. What would you do?”

 

War crimes are being committed by Hamas. They tell their own people to stay in their homes and to die as martyrs for Jihad, so duplicitous video will show the “Palestinian suffering” at the hands of Israel. And all the while they bombard Israel; since June 2014, Hamas has fired approximately four to five thousand missiles into Israel, targeting civilians and military personnel indiscriminately.

 

In July Dov Hikind, Democratic Assemblyman from Brooklyn, stated on Fox News:

 

“They (the Hamas terrorists) are rejoicing because they put civilians as human shields. America condemns Israel and they are thrilled … I asked the President of the United States, stop this,”

 

On July 9, Hamas spokesman Mushir al-Masri said, “The blood of the shahids (martyrs) killed in this campaign is the fuel of our victory.”

 

Adding insult to injury, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter recently abandoned all morality and called for the U.S. to recognize Hamas as a legitimate political group and delivered more of his frequent anti-Semitic statements against Israel. One must wonder if Carter would also call Al Qaeda “a legitimate political group.”

 

Even more disturbing, the Obama administration is relying on Qatar, an ally of Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, for guidance during this conflict between Israel and Hamas. Secretary of State John Kerry defers the “peace process” to supporters of terrorism, because he believes Qatar’s Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiyeh will be able to bring the Hamas terrorist government to the negotiating table. Kerry seems to forget that Israel is the U.S.’s long standing ally by treaty, not Hamas; but, this is not unusual for this administration, which has a major Muslim Brotherhood presence in the White House inner circle that has regularly exposed national security information, according to retired General Tom McInerney.

 

Is it not surreal and shameful to hear the ‘New York Times’ call Kerry “a loyal friend to Israel?”

 

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict really does not have a comprehensive solution, because it is purely Israel’s existence as a sovereign Jewish state in the middle of all Islam that troubles these Sons of Allah, Hamas. And, in their quest to destroy Israel, these terrorists, who follow the same Pan-Islamist agenda as ISIS, Hezbollah and Al Qaeda, will always play the double-cross and keep their people in squalor, poverty and conflict, until they send them to their deaths as martyrs, to kill and die: Israel’s only option is to pursue a One State Solution, annex Gaza, eradicate Hamas and annex the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

 

I find it shameful that, in the name of world peace, Obama, Kerry, the U.N. and many Americans and Europeans absolve one side alone, Hamas, of its hate, and, in the name of pacifism, they lead the confused and uneducated back three-quarters of a century to the time of the yellow star on the coat. And I find it shameful to see those hypocritical progressives, such as Jimmy Carter and John Kerry, communists and pacifists nourish the rise of a new fascism, most grim and revolting, as Hamas leaders, such as Khalil al-Hayya, use $440 million in annual U.S. aid to buy missiles to kill Jews.

 

I see it, yes, and I stand with Israel. I stand with the Jews. I defend their right to defend themselves from being exterminated a second time. And disgusted by the anti-Semitism of many Americans, I am ashamed of this shame, the “president” and his administration that dishonors my Country.

Hamas Needs to Unconditionally Surrender or Face the Consequences


BHO-Kerry stab Netanyahu in back over Ceasefire

A transcript of a conversation between President Barack Hussein Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has crept into the public domain. In the transcript Obama is demanding – no a better description – commanding Netanyahu to unilaterally ceasefire against Hamas in the Israeli campaign to cripple the Islamic terrorist organization’s ability to send missiles and kidnapping terrorists into Israel.

 

As far as I know the White House staff is denying such a conversation had taken place between Obama and Netanyahu. Which is not surprising since Obama and is his Administration has been denying knowledge of wrong doing, scandals and corruption throughout most of his Administration. When Congress subpoenas the Executive Branch documents to find the truth Obama dictatorially claims Executive Privilege, stonewalls or outright refuses to comply with Congressional subpoenas. So I am completely convinced this conversation indeed took place between Obama and Netanyahu regardless of White House denials.

 

It is no secret that Obama has been strong arming Israel about settlements in Judea-Samaria and the Jewish presence in the eastern half of their capital city Jerusalem for years. With Obama’s overt siding with murderous terrorist organization Hamas and the Arabs in Gaza that call themselves Palestinians who support their Muslim terrorists, Obama is then telling the Western world it is okay to turn the screws on Israel to comply with indefensible borders by giving up more of their ancestral land to Jew-haters with the only goal of destroying Israel and killing Jews.

 

As callous as it may sound I have no problem with the so-called civilian casualties in Gaza. The Gazans are terrorists in training much like Americans may view historical militias that were from among American civilians to fight the aggression of invaders. These so-called Palestinians are as dedicated to the Hamas agenda of Jew-hatred, killing Jews and destroying Israel as is Hamas.

 

Here is the essence of European hypocrisy in demanding Israel stop its military expedition called Operation Protective Edge. (OPE Updates on Jerusalem Post):

 

The mantra of the Allies fighting in WWII was complete and unconditional surrender of Nazi Germany. The Americans, the Brits and the Russians had no problem with carpet bombing and shelling German cities into oblivion. Do you think there were civilian casualties? Placing Austria as a part of the German Nazi Third Reich the combined civilian deaths due to Allied military action was 3,890,000 during WWII.

Berlin

Linz

You get the idea! If you want to end a war so that the enemy is so defanged that they cannot regroup to fight another day. Today Nazi Germany is not only gone but anything to do with the promotion of Nazism is illegal in Germany today.

 

In January 1943 the leaders of the principle Allies (who graciously included defanged Free France leadership) met in Casablanca to form the strategy to eradicate any future threats the Axis enemies:

 

At Casablanca, Roosevelt also announced that the Axis powers must surrender unconditionally to the Allies, announced without prior consultation with his British counterpart. “Peace can come to the world only by the total elimination of German and Japanese war power,” announced Roosevelt at the joint press conference ten days after this conference. “The elimination of Germany, Japanese, and Italian war power means the unconditional surrender by Germany, Italy, and Japan.” Churchill seconded by noting that “design, purpose, and unconquerable will [will be applied] to enforce unconditional surrender upon the criminals who have plunged the world into war.” (Bold Print by Editor; Casablanca Conference: 14 Jan 1943; Named Contributor – C. Peter Chen; World War II Data Base)

 

I believe Israel can join Sir Winston Churchill and declare pertaining to Hamas that the goal of IDF must be the “design, purpose, and unconquerable will (will be applied) to enforce unconditional surrender upon the criminals who have plunged the world into war.

 

To end Islamic terrorists from firing missiles into Israel and stop the coordinated planning of kidnapping IDF soldiers and innocent Jews with the threats of murder, Israel must exact the total eradication of the Hamas organization. If that means the Gaza civilians that support Hamas are casualties or even suffer deaths then so be it. Israel needs an unconditional surrender and NOT a truce or ceasefire that enables the Jew-haters to regroup and rearm.

Alleged Transcript Reveals Obama Tries To Bully Netanyahu; Sides With Hamas Terrorists

 

July 29, 2014

By Jennifer Burke

Tea Party News Network

 

An Israeli newspaper claims that Barack Obama had a tense phone call with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during which Obama took a hardline stance in favor of Hamas terrorists.

 

Reason.com reports on the transcript of the phone call that was released by The Times of Israel. As of this posting, the transcript has not been confirmed and the White House denies that such a conversation took place. However, Obama’s deafening silence to the rise of anti-Semitism in America and the $47 million of ‘humanitarian aid’ he authorized to be sent to the Hamas terrorist controlled Gaza strip, money many believe will be seized by the terrorists, will cause many to believe the possibility of this transcript being true.

 

Barack Obama: I demand that Israel agrees to an immediate, unilateral ceasefire and halt all offensive activities, in particular airstrikes.

 

Benjamin Netanyahu: And what will Israel receive in exchange for a ceasefire?

 

BO: I believe that Hamas will cease its rocket fire — silence will be met with silence.

 

BN: Hamas broke all five previous ceasefires. It’s a terrorist organization dedicated to the destruction of Israel.

 

BO: I repeat and expect Israel to stop all its military activities unilaterally. The pictures of destruction in Gaza distance the world from Israel’s position.

 

BN: Kerry’s proposal was completely unrealistic and gives Hamas military and diplomatic advantages.

 

BO: Within a week of the end of Israel’s military activities, Qatar and Turkey will begin negotiations with Hamas based on the 2012 understandings, including Israel’s commitment to removing the siege and restrictions on Gaza.

 

BN: Qatar and Turkey are the biggest supporters of Hamas. It’s impossible to rely on them to be fair mediators.

 

BO: I trust Qatar and Turkey. Israel is not in the position that it can choose its mediators.

 

BN: I protest because Hamas can continue to launch rockets and use tunnels for terror attacks –

 

BO: (interrupting Netanyahu) The ball’s in Israel’s court, and it must end all its military activities.

 

So, there you have it. Did Obama really a hardline with our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel, while he capitulated to Vladimir Putin, only sending him a ‘stern letter’ regarding Russia’s violation of an arms control treaty by firing missiles, and negotiated with terrorists in the release of five top Taliban leaders in exchange for deserter Bowe Bergdahl?
