Unwitting Embrace of Leftist Utopianism due to Jew-Hatred


John R. Houk

© April 23, 2019

I find it quite disturbing and extremely sad that there exists people in America who claim patriotism yet express racist statements indicating Jew-Hatred and Anti-Israel sentiments.

 

These so-called Patriots will lump all Jews monolithically as something repugnant because people of Jewish heritage have been or (startlingly) currently are supportive of Left-Wing ideology too often to the point of Marxist-Leninist-Maoist Communism.

 

In case you didn’t realize it, lumping Communist-oriented Jews are representative of all Judaism is like lumping all Americans with Communism because many people of a Western Civilization heritage (yet non-Jewish) embraced atheistic Communism. Western Christians such as Friedrich Engels and Vladimir Lenin (born as Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov) abandoned their faith and heritage to embrace a violent-revolution concept like Communism.

 

Sure, people of a Jewish heritage devoted themselves to Communism, for the most part these Communist devotees abandoned their faith and heritage in the same fashion as the Communists who abandoned their Christian heritage. The attributed inventor of modern Communism in Karl Marx is an example. Another example of abandoning his heritage to embrace Communism is Mao Zedong (aka Mao Tse-tung).

 

For people looking for a form of Leftist Utopianism, Communism is the antidote regardless of heritage and religion. Ultimately the Communist antidote seeks to transform society enforced by a government even if it means massive murders for society to forget their past heritage.

 

Those Americans calling themselves Patriots yet hate Jews are unwittingly aligning themselves with Leftist Utopianism which would lead to Communism. To be clear, Communism eradicates Liberty and Freedom as the Leftist ideology seeks to make people the Natural Rights endowed by Nature’s God.

 

This brings me to the Pro-Israel organization that non-Jewish Leftists; self-loathing Leftist Jews and Muslim Apologists love to hate – the Canary Mission. I have posted twice on the Canary Mission HERE and HERE. If you are a Jew-Hater that erroneously describes oneself as a Patriot, I pray the Canary Mission exposes your racism.

Canary Mission screen capture

Jews have had a long history of engaging in wars with enemies who fight by rules that Jews find abhorrent. Rather than fight by those rules, Jews have held themselves to more humane standards. While this is morally admirable, it’s not always martially effective.

 

On his way to establishing control over the Arabian Peninsula, Mohammed’s armies fought and conquered the Jewish tribes that had lived there for centuries. Jews of the Nadir tribe, living around Medina, wouldn’t fight on the Sabbath. Even during wartime, due to a biblical injunction, they refused to cut down their enemy’s fruit trees. Mohammed had no such qualms. He had his soldiers cut down the Nadir’s date palms on which they depended for food and for trade. And he did it on the Sabbath. The Nadir surrendered and were exiled.

 

Israel has been battling the terrorists of Hamas ever since abandoning Gaza in a futile attempt at peaceful coexistence. The IDF is the most moral army in the world and fights as hard at avoiding civilian casualties as they do at fighting against Hamas. Hamas works hard at creating civilian casualties, its favorites being Gazan children that their media allies can blame Israel for. And so this war drags on.

 

On university campuses throughout North America, Israel and Jewish students are vilified and harassed by BDS supporters including Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) and their allies. Campus Jews think this is an ideological disagreement. Jewish students don’t understand that BDS and SJP are fighting a war, and so they continue the custom of fighting by different rules. Jewish students see BDS and SJP as organizations that they can debate in order to sway the larger student population.

 

Meanwhile, BDS proponents, in this endless war against the Jews, use every anti-Semitic/anti-Israel lie they can muster. They use theater, public demonstrations, and displays designed to demonize Israel. They crush dissent by protesting and shouting down pro-Israel speakers. They demand free speech rights, but deny them to campus Israel supporters. They feel emboldened enough to tweet messages like, “Hitler should have killed the Jews when he had the chance that dog” and “What do you call a flyin Jew?….. Smoke.”

 

Jewish students, who because they are at college to get an education, are at a terrible disadvantage facing paid BDS activists, who are on campus to demonize Israel as part of a long-term strategy to bring down the Jewish state and return Jews to their Sharia approved roles as “dhimmis.” While Jewish students have formed grass-root organizations to fight BDS, BDS groups, including SJP, are the American arms of Hamas and are well trained and well funded by Hamas.

 

The main Hamas to SJP conduit has been American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), a group founded by U of C Berkeley professor, Hatem Bazian. AMP’s board membership includes various anti-Israel activists, terror supporters, and former members of the Holy Land Foundation, an organization that was shut down in 2009 after a lengthy FBI terrorism investigation and federal trial.

 

In addition, Omar Barghouti, founder of the BDS movement, who was denied entry into the U.S. in April 2019, has extensive terrorist connections. A group he co-founded, the Palestinian Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions National Committee (BNC) receives support from a who’s who of terrorist organizations that not only includes Hamas, but also: Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Palestine Liberation, Front, Palestinians Islamic Jihad, and many others.

 

Barghouti’s father, Marwan Barghouti, along with Yassir Arafat, was a founder of the PLO, which Omar Barghouti states, “was very much a part of our family . . .” The elder Barghouti also ran the terrorist Tanzim force and founded the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades. One does not engage in reasoned debate with these people.

 

Recently, groups like Zionist Organization of America, StandWithUs, and the Lawfare Project, have begun steering more resources into training and supporting beleaguered Israel advocates. These adult organizations have gained experience over the years of struggle and have begun fighting back more aggressively, going so far as bringing lawsuits against some of the most unfriendly-to-Jews universities.

 

Even with this outside help, Jewish students still refuse to go all out. They still insist on holding back even as they themselves on some campuses are wary of looking too Jewish by wearing a kippah or other noticeably Jewish outerwear, lest they be harassed. Like the IDF, they insist on fighting with one (or more) hand(s) behind their backs.

 

Three years ago, a new anti-BDS group, calling themselves “Canary Mission,” entered the fray. They take their name from the recognition that Jews are the “canary in the coal mine,” the first to face irrational discrimination when societies enter into periods of increased bigotry and self-destruction. Their motto is, “If you’re racist, the world should know it.” Their members remain anonymous. They work at exposing campus anti-Semites, including students and professors, on the Left and on the Right. And they use the anti-Semites’ own words from their own social media posts to do it. They’ve created an online database full of anti-Semitic and anti-Israel tweets and Facebook rants, and dedicated pages listing personal and organizational ties to Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist groups.

 

The Middle East Studies Association, an organization that backed a University of Michigan professor in his refusal to write a recommendation for a Jewish student to study in Israel, has a page on its website dedicated to “exposing” Canary Mission. They claim that Canary Mission’s “profiles are filled with falsehoods, misrepresentations and errors,” but provide no examples. They misrepresent Canary Mission’s “political agenda” and denounce its members as being “extremists.” Without a trace of irony, they accuse Canary Mission of seeking to “silence free and open campus discussion of, and teaching about, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” Canary Mission is lumped with organizations like CAMERA, Honest Reporting, StandWithUs, and other pro-Israel and media watchdog organizations that MESA falsely associates with a “rise of Islamophobia.”

 

The Electronic Intifada has posted Steven Salaita’s diatribe, “A guide to surviving Canary Mission,” from which we learn about “Zionist thuggery,” “messianic compulsions of settler-colonization,” and facilitation of “sexist, racist and homophobic abuse.” His advice is, don’t talk to Zionists. Recall that Salaita had a University of Illinois job offer rescinded after some of his vicious anti-Israel tweets came to light.

 

Mondoweiss calls Canary Mission “a settler-colonial scam, an ethnonationalist slur, and a malicious, well-funded, underground machine set to destroy the lives and careers of real people.” People exposed by Canary Mission are referred to as “Palestinian human rights advocates” who are smeared by Canary Mission, but again, no “real people” examples are offered.

 

In addition to these long-standing Israel-hating sites, there is now, “Against Canary Mission.” In addition to slamming Canary Mission, this site also houses rehabilitative counter-profiles on people previously profiled by Canary Mission. These profiles are much shorter and contain much less detail. They are much friendlier. There is also an option for “activists” to write their own profile. To be fair, I could not find that option on the Canary Mission website.

 

The legal director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee has accused Canary Mission of using “dirty tactics.”

 

Blowback from groups like the Middle East Studies Association and these other Israel hating websites are predictable. The fact that these sites are so offended by Canary Mission and so eager to slander and discredit it, tells us that Canary Mission is effective and that the campus Israel/Jew haters and terror supporters are afraid of being revealed as the hateful bigots they are.

 

Unfortunately, Canary Mission is so effective that it is also scaring the Jewish students who have been subjected to the bullying tactics of the people Canary Mission has profiled. And the Jewish students, in their panic at possibly being labeled as “racist” or “Islamophobic,” are siding with their enemies against Canary Mission.

 

In April and again in October 2016, the David Horowitz Freedom Center, using information provided by Canary Mission, put posters up on the U of C Berkeley campus, showing Students for Justice in Palestine’s links to Hamas. In addition, names were named. The posters were denounced by campus SJP members as “hate speech.” An attorney with Palestine Legal criticized the university “for allegedly creating a hateful environment for SJP.” This is the same campus that employs Professor Hatem Bazian, who has a deservedly long Canary Mission page documenting his founding of AMP and co-creating SJP. This is in addition to Bazian’s fund raising activities for a Hamas-linked charity and his unabashed promotion of anti-Semitism.

 

Besides being Hatem Bazian’s home campus, U of C Berkeley is also infamous for hosting a course calling for the destruction of Israel. It’s the university where Rachel Beyda was almost denied a student government leadership position because she is Jewish. Even so, the president of the Jewish Student Union condemned the posters, stating, “. . . This does not allow us to have any room for conversation from the pro-Israel or pro-Palestinian side.”

 

When the posters also appeared at San Francisco State University, which is currently being sued for discriminating against Jewish students, an advisor to the General Union of Palestine Students stated, “This is very racist, it is Islamophobic.” San Francisco’s Hillel executive director condemned the “offensive messages.”

 

At UC Davis, Aggies for Israel allied themselves with student groups including the Muslim Student Association (another Muslim Brotherhood front group, many of whose leaders graduated to terrorism), to pass a resolution, part of which accuses Canary Mission, again without irony, of creating “a toxic atmosphere of fear and paranoia among fellow students, thus infringing upon students’ ability to freely express their opinions.”

 

At the University of Michigan, a pro-BDS resolution was recently passed on its eleventh try. Part of the blame was laid at the feet of Canary Mission. BDS proponents, who were savvy enough to play on Jewish students’ insistence on fair play, pulled out their victim card, expressing worry about future repercussions due to Canary Mission’s “blacklist” and “McCarthyite tactics.” In return Jewish student organizations rolled over, submitting to a secret ballot, thereby allowing anti-Israel/anti-Semitic student government officials to escape responsibility for their anti-Israel vote. The Jewish students lost because they allowed BDS to set the rules and control the battle.

 

Following the vote, two students wrote a letter, which was signed by several universities’ Hillel Governing/Executive Boards and pro-Israel organizations, rejecting Canary Mission. “We view much of the rhetoric employed to villainize these individuals as hateful and, in some case, Islamophobic and racist. In addition, Canary Mission’s wide scope wrongfully equates supporting a BDS resolution with some of the most virulent expressions of anti-Semitism and anti-Israel rhetoric and activity. . . we expect credible Jewish and pro-Israel communal organizations to help us combat anti-Semitism . . . in a diplomatic manner that seeks to protect our community rather than shaming the other side anonymously.”

 

One would expect SJP members to condemn the coverage of their terrorist ties. When Jewish students and Jewish organizations side with SJP because they want to combat anti-Semitism in a diplomatic manner and not shame the other side’s vile ethnic hatred, it’s clear that the Jewish students do not understand the nature of the enemy or the enormity of this fight.

 

Sun Tzu said, “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

 

BDS proponents know their enemy, and they know how easy it is to control Jewish students who are truly interested in fairness and decency, with cries of “racism” and “Islamophobia.” Jewish students, who have grown up in bubbles of comfort, don’t even know that they have an enemy.  The lesson from our Passover Haggadah that: “in each and every generation, they rise up against us to destroy us” hasn’t been taken seriously. Students don’t know enough Jewish history to understand that this is just the latest manifestation of an ancient war against the Jews that began in Europe with the rise of Christianity and in the Middle East with the rise of Islam. They really believe it’s all about Israel, when Israel is just the latest excuse. They don’t understand that they are pulling the wool over their own eyes and doing some of SJP’s (and Hamas’) work for them.

 

Mohammed said, “War is deceit.” Deceit, implicit in campus “apartheid walls,” die-ins, and mock checkpoints, is the strongest weapon in the Israel-haters arsenal. Their second greatest weapon is Jewish students’ naiveté.

 

We know there is a double standard when it comes to Jews and Israel. University officials are willing to overlook campus anti-Semitism if it is masked as anti-Zionism. The anti-Semites have worked hard to create a false separation between Judaism and Zionism in order to justify and promote their hatred.

 

When a group of Wisconsin high school students stupidly posed for a school photo giving a “seig heil” salute, there were calls for their suspension. And, we were told, “. . . the image could have far-reaching consequences for the young men pictured there . . .” Meanwhile, Canary Mission has screenshots of SJP members tweeting things like: “The world would be soooo much better without jews man”, and “Lol let’s stuff some Jews in the oven.”  Shouldn’t these publicly posted sentiments have far-reaching consequences? Not according to Jewish students. But just like Israel’s fight with Hamas, the misguided insistence on fair play insures that this fight will continue long after the current crop of students has graduated. And as long as these students support Israel, they will always be denigrated. They will always be insulted as bigots by real bigots.

 

Using Canary Mission’s information, Jewish university students can take the offensive in order to hamper BDS efforts. If the BDS movement were a white supremacist or neo-Nazi group, there would be no reservations about using Canary Mission to expose them. This is a double standard Jewish students are imposing on themselves.

 

It’s not McCarthyite or bigoted if they’re telling the truth. Canary Mission recently posted a video in which SJP members disrupt a UCLA Students Supporting Israel event and threaten the speakers. SJP denied having anything to do with the disruption. But thanks to advances in digital technology, the SJP bullies are highlighted in the video along with screenshots of some of their troubling tweets. McCarthyism? No. This is revealing the truth and exposing SJP as not only bullies, but also as liars. This is fighting back. [Blog Editor’s bold text] It is aggressively taking the fight to the bigots on the public relations field where Jews and Israel have been taking a beating due to their insistence on either engaging in free and fair debate or not fighting back at all. Unlike the campus Israel haters who depend on deception, it is the Jewish pro-Israel students who have the truth on their side.

 

We know that a juicy, outrageous lie that gets one’s blood boiling is easier to accept than a boring truth, especially if that lie is about Jews or Israel. Exposing the bigoted hatred of the SJP liars and their admiration for Hitler and Nazis, who, they mourn, should have finished the job, would do a lot more for the campus pro-Israel cause than reasoned debate. In that debate, lies carry the same weight as truth to students who don’t know enough about Israel or its history to tell the difference. Anyone though, even a brainwashed university student, can identify as anti-Semitic, a tweet that says, “@BarackObama shut up about gay marriage and go kill all the Jews.” Display enough of these detestable social media posts and expose enough links to terrorism, and the true intentions of the posters would be undeniable, even as they whine about being victims.

 

That would be a strong first step toward defeating and shutting down the campus Israel/Jew-hating industry.

The Totalitarian Blueprint: William J. Murray’s New Book Documents the Horrors Unleashed by Utopian Dreamers


Utopian Road to Hell bk jk

To my readers: I have been overcoming a horrible cold which is still lingers but is thankfully departing. Ergo I am a bit behind in my daily blog studying and posting. In an effort to reboot my posting let me share an interesting book plug email I received from WND today.

 

WND Books is plugging “Utopian Road to Hell: Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning” By William J. Murray, son of former atheist apologist Madalyn Murray O’Hair. O’Hare is the gal responsible for contributing to the Left Wing transformationist agenda of removing Christianity from America’s public forum in which the Supreme Court found a case to reinterpret the Original Intent of the First Amendment.

 

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. (First Amendment – U.S. Constitution; FindLaw.com)

 

Atheists like Madalyn Murray O’Hair convinced a majority of Living Constitution-believing Justices that “… make no law respecting an establishment of religion” meant a government/public forum separate and without religion. Incidentally, “religion” as understood by the Founding Fathers meant “Christianity”. The word “separate” or “separation” is NO Where found in the U.S. Constitution in relation to faith.

 

Phrasing was originally and should be now, the People shall not have the government impose a religion (specifically – establish a State Church) but the People shall be free to exercise their faith in private OR public as in and on the auspices of government.

 

Consider this my intro to the WND Books plug for William J. Murray’s book “Utopian Road to Hell: Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning”.

Documents the Horrors Unleashed by Utopian Dreamers

WASHINGTON — Utopian dreamers are deceived and deceiving. Their “fight for the people” rhetoric may sound good at first, but history proves the egalitarian governments and cultures they try to create destroy freedom, destroy creativity, destroy human lives, create poverty and misery and often spread beyond their borders to bring others under slavery. They believe that through their own personal brilliance a better society can be created on earth. When the belief in man as a creation in the image of God is completely rejected, the use of slavery and mass execution can be justified in the name of the creation of a utopian state for the masses. Pol Pot, Vladimir Lenin, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, together these so-called visionaries through their fanciful policies are responsible for the death of millions of people.

In Utopian Road to Hell: Enslaving America and the World with Central Planning, William J. Murray, son of former atheist apologist Madalyn Murray O’Hair, describes the totalitarians throughout history and the current utopians who are determined to engage in social engineering to control the lives of every person on earth. From Marx to Hitler, Murray explains the progression of socialist engineering from its occultist roots to the extreme madness of the Nazi’s nationalistic racism. From Margaret Sanger’s Planned Parenthood and Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, the rebellious desire to be free from morality drives the “at-any-cost” campaigns such as abortion on demand, no-fault divorce, same-sex marriage, overreaching government provisions. From Woodrow Wilson’s “living document” distortion of the Constitution and his income tax to FDR’s New Deal to Obama’s executive orders, those who seek centralized power typically do so by proclaiming some utopian scheme that they claim will perfect mankind and eliminate competition, greed, poverty, and war.

To be released by WND Books on March 8, 2015, Murray’s Utopian Road to Hell masterfully educates us of the utopians’ swath of destruction in history and warns us of the dangers of present-day utopians fighting to hold power today. We must heed the warning of George Washington when he said in his 1796 Farewell Address that it is important for those entrusted with the administration of this great and free nation, “to confine themselves within their respective constitutional spheres, avoiding in the exercise of the powers of one department to encroach upon another.” We must reclaim the freedom of the individual to avoid the continued path down the utopian road to hell.
William J. Murray is the chairman of the Religious Freedom Coalition in Washington, DC. For more than three decades he has been at the forefront of social conservatism. He has appeared on ABC, CBS, Fox News, and NBC News and has authored hundreds of columns, which have appeared online and in print. William J. Murray continues to work for the rights of Christians in America and persecuted Christians around the world and is the author of eight books.

Utopian Road to Hell will be in bookstores nationwide on March 8, 2016.

Iran Nuke Deal Hubris will Eventually Succumb to True American Spirit


John R. Houk

© September 4, 2015

Yesterday I posted “Get on Board with Anti-Iran Nuke Deal Rally in DC”. I posted about the rally not realizing that on Wednesday it was reported that Maryland’s Sen. Barbara Mikulski became the 34th senator to support Obama’s nuclear deal. Not a few pointed out that out to me yesterday after I had posted. One detractor of whom I have immense respect for his analytical acumen conversed with me via a comment interaction over some Facebook groups.

All that my detractor share was categorically accurate. I was left only refuting him with a football analogy to wit: The game is never over until the clock hits zeros. I alluded in hope that a massive public outcry to the Senators selling America and Israel out to a nuclear armed Iran could change enough Senators or Congressmen to override Obama’s veto just as the clock ran out.

I called this thinking “hope”. My learned detractor probably correctly called the thinking a fantasy. Even if “fantasy” is a more apt description than “hope,” I was disturbed with the futility that hope was useless. I still finding hopeless futility disturbing.

Just think how futile many American colonialists and British lawmakers believed an American rebellion would work to change the oppression slowly overshadowing colonial British citizens. Indeed, I wonder how many signers of the Declaration of Independence felt they signed their own death warrant gloomily expecting the British military to brutally hunt down the minority rebellious colonialists and execute them for treason via the noose or firing squad. The last sentence of the Declaration of Independence:

“And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.” (The Declaration of Independence; The Heritage Foundation (analysis on First Principles Series)

The 56 signers knew that death was probable but signed anyway.

Mark Folkertsma writes about how many of the signers and family members indeed met nefarious ends at the hands of the British during the fight for independence:

… Pretty heady stuff for a group of heroes who knew that their actions exposed them all to charges of treason, for which the penalty was swift and sure execution at the hands of the colonial masters whose authority they defied.

Indeed, during the revolutionary war that followed this event, almost all of the signers of the Declaration of Independence lost their property; many lost their families or saw them waste away in imperial prisons. More than a few died in infamy, penniless, and forgotten. All for the sake of the Declaration; all for the sake of their “sacred honor.”

Is there a way out? Yes, and that way is the Declaration of Independence. After all, a decent respect for its moral principles – God-authored rights, equality before the law, contract theory of government – demands our attention, claims our reverence. And, in the final analysis, our sacred honor. This truly is the Spirit of ’76. (A Decent Respect: Renewing the Spirit of ’76; By Marvin Folkertsma; The Patriot Post; 7/1/14)

It is my belief that the American Spirit birthed in 1776 is a part of our mental DNA. If that DNA fails to act in one of those Dem Senators and Congressmen that have committed themselves to the delusions (or worse – the nefarious intentions) of President Barack Hussein Obama pertaining to Iran. AND follows through with an idiotic commitment that will end in the nuclear warhead arming of Iran, then Americans who love their Liberty more than a Left Wing utopian illusions will again arise to a decent respect for moral principles willing to pledge their sacred honor even in war to correct the wrongs of America’s most Leftist President, then:

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. (1st paragraph of Declaration of Independence 1776)

It is in light of this indomitable American spirit that I share the words of an Israeli citizen born in the USA – Caroline Glick.

Column One: A glorious defeat

By CAROLINE B. GLICK

July 3, 2015

Jerusalem Post

Over the past seven years Washington has sent a steady stream of senior officials to “oversee joint Israeli-American efforts” regarding Iran.

Sometimes you have to fight battles you cannot win because fighting – regardless of the outcome – advances a larger cause.

Israel’s fight against the nuclear deal the major powers, led by US President Barack Obama concluded with Iran was such a battle.

The battle’s futility became clear on July 20, just six days after it was concluded in Vienna.

On July 20, the US administration anchored the deal – which paves the way for Iran to become a nuclear power and enriches the terrorism-sponsoring ayatollahs to the tune of $150 billion – in a binding UN Security Council resolution. Once the resolution passed, the deal became unstoppable.

Most of the frozen funds that comprise the $150 [billion] would have been released regardless of congressional action. And the nonproliferation regime the US developed over the past 70 years was upended the moment the deal was concluded in Vienna.

The fight in Congress itself probably couldn’t have succeeded even if the administration hadn’t made an end run around the lawmakers at the Security Council.

After Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, passed the law obligating Obama to secure the support of a mere third of the members of either House to implement his nuclear deal, its implementation was a foregone conclusion. The US Constitution gives sole power to approve international treaties to the Senate and requires a minimum of two-thirds approval for passage. Corker turned the Constitution on its head when he went forward with his bill. Far from curbing Obama’s executive overreach, Corker gave Obama unprecedented power to enact his radical, reckless nuclear agenda.

So if the fight against the deal was doomed to fail, why did the Israeli government decide to fight it for all it was worth? And why is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu still fighting it even though there is no longer any way to stop Obama from enabling Iran to sprint across the nuclear finish line? By fighting Obama’s nuclear deal, Israel seeks to advance two larger efforts. First, it uses the battle to expand its capacity to act without the US to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Second, it is shaping its relations with the US both for the duration of Obama’s presidency and for the day after he leaves office.

As far as Iran’s nuclear program is concerned, Obama’s deal has not impacted Israel’s options for preventing the mullahs from getting the bomb.

Even before the US betrayed Israel, its Arab allies and its own national security interests and closed a deal that will transform Iran into a nuclear power and a regional hegemon, there was no chance that the Americans would take action to prevent Iran from developing atomic warheads.

That prospect was taken off the table in November 2007. The National Intelligence Estimate on Iran’s nuclear program published that month falsely – and scandalously – asserted that Tehran abandoned its nuclear weapons program at the end of 2003.

The NIE was a bureaucratic coup. CIA analysts, notorious since the 1970s for their biased and politicized analyses, used the falsified NIE to block then-president George W. Bush from dealing with Iran. After losing the public’s support for the war in Iraq, and after failing to find Saddam’s WMD (which magically fell into the hands of Islamic State 11 years after the US invasion), Bush was powerless to oppose an official assessment of the intelligence community that claimed Iran was not a nuclear proliferator.

As for Obama, in early 2008, even before he secured the Democratic presidential nomination, he announced that he wanted to negotiate with then-Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

At no time since was there any evidence supporting the notion that Obama would lift a finger to prevent Iran from going nuclear.

In other words, for the past eight years it has been apparent to everyone willing to see that Israel has but option for preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.

By fighting so strenuously against Obama’s nuclear deal, Israel improved its ability to carry out a military strike against Iran’s nuclear installations in two ways.

First, it removed the most serious domestic obstacle to carrying out such a strike.

Last week’s publication of audio recordings of former defense minister Ehud Barak discussing of Iran’s nuclear program revealed that for the past several years, Israel’s military and intelligence brass have blocked operations against Iran’s nuclear installations three times. In 2010, 2011 and 2012 the IDF chief of General Staff and senior generals supported by hesitant cabinet members refused to carry out instructions they received from Netanyahu and Barak to prepare to carry out such a strike.

There is no doubt that one of the main reasons they opposed lawful instructions was their faith in Obama’s security pledges.

For their part, the Americans did their best to subvert the authority of Israel’s elected leadership.

Over the past seven years Washington has sent a steady stream of senior officials to “oversee joint Israeli-American efforts” regarding Iran. It is now obvious that this “unprecedented cooperation” was never aimed at strengthening Israel against Iran. Rather, its aim has been to erode the government’s power to make independent decisions regarding Iran’s nuclear installations.

Had Netanyahu kept his criticism of Obama’s decision to give Iran a free hand to develop nuclear weapons quiet, the generals might have shrugged their shoulders and expressed gratitude for the shiny new weapons Obama will throw at them to “compensate” for giving nukes to a regime sworn to annihilate the country.

By making his opposition public, Netanyahu alerted the nation to the dangers. The top commanders can no longer pretend that US security guarantees are credible. Now they will be forced to kick their psychological addiction to worthless American security guarantees, accept reality and act accordingly.

Better eight years late than never.

The Americans weren’t the only ones paying attention to Israel’s fight. Israel’s Arab neighbors also saw how Netanyahu and Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer left no stone unturned in their efforts to convince Democratic lawmakers to oppose it. And the regional implications are already becoming clear.

As the Saudis’ willingness to stand with Israel in public to oppose this deal has shown, our neighbors have been deeply impressed by the diplomatic courage Israel has shown. If and when Israel strikes Iran’s nuclear installations, our willingness to openly oppose the administration will weigh in our favor. It will impact our neighbors’ willingness to cooperate in action aimed at removing Iran’s nuclear sword from their necks and ours.

By fighting the deal, Israel has also worked to shape our relations with the US in a favorable way both in the short and long term.

Obama has another year and four months in office. (503 days, but who’s counting?) Even before the fight over his nuclear deal began in earnest, Obama made clear that he intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the US-Israel alliance and to weaken Israel internationally.

In the first instance, his Democratic and progressive surrogates’ anti-Semitic assaults against New York Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer, and the Justice Department’s coincidental indictment of pro-Israel New Jersey Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez communicated a clear message to Democratic lawmakers: Any Democrat who supports Israel against Obama will be targeted.

By acting in this way, Obama has communicated the clear goal of transforming support for Israel into the foreign policy equivalent of opposing abortion: a Republicans-only position.

Internationally, there can be little doubt that until Obama leaves office, he will seek to harm Israel and the UN. He may as well seek to harm our economy by quietly instituting administrative trade barriers with the US and Europe.

Israel’s fight against Obama’s nuclear deal has diminished Obama’s ability to use his full power to harm it while preparing the ground for relations to be repaired under his successor.

Until Netanyahu spoke before the joint houses of Congress in March, Obama’s nuclear deal was largely outside the American discourse. The fierce public debate began only after Netanyahu’s address. True, on Wednesday Obama got the support of his 34th Democratic senator and so blocked Israel’s efforts to convince Congress to vote down the deal. But his victory will be Pyrrhic.

Obama’s success will backfire first and foremost because thanks to Netanyahu’s move to spearhead the public debate in the US, today two-thirds of Americans oppose the deal. Since Iran will waste no time proving just how devastating a mistake Obama and his fellow Democrats have just made, Obama’s success makes him far less free to enact further steps against Israel than he was before the deal was concluded. The public no longer will give him the benefit of the doubt.

Moreover, since the deal is as bad as its opponents say it is, and given that most Americans oppose it, Obama’s successor will face no impediments in canceling the deal and adopting a new policy towards Israel and Iran.

Then there are Obama’s Democratic followers in Congress.

Today some commentators argue that Obama’s victory over opponents of his nuclear deal – first and foremost AIPAC – spells the demise of the pro-Israel lobby in the US.

Thankfully, they are mistaken.

Just as it failed to prevent then-president Ronald Reagan from selling AWACs to Saudi Arabia in 1981, so AIPAC had no chance of preventing Obama from moving ahead with his Iran deal.

AIPAC has never had the power to defeat a president intent on advancing an anti-Israel policy.

We will only be able to measure AIPAC’s power after the 2016 elections.

Given that the nuclear pact will fail, there will be plenty of Democrats challengers who will be eager to use their Democratic incumbent opponents’ support for Obama’s nuclear madness against them. AIPAC’s public fight against the deal has set the conditions for it to extract a political price from its supporters who preferred Obama to US national security.

If AIPAC extracts a price from key Democratic lawmakers who played crucial roles in approving the nuclear deal with Iran, it will prevent Obama from turning support for Israel into a partisan issue and emerge strengthened from the fight.

On Wednesday, after Maryland’s Sen. Barbara Mikulski became the 34th senator to support Obama’s nuclear deal, PBS’s senior anchorwoman Gwen Ifill tweeted, “Take that, Bibi.”

Obama’s win is Bibi’s loss. Bibi failed to convince 12 Democratic senators and 44 Democratic congressmen to vote against the head of their party. But by fighting against this deal, Netanyahu removed the main obstacle that kept Israel from taking action that will prevent Iran from going nuclear. He reduced Obama’s power to harm Israel.

The fight strengthened American and American- Jewish opposition to the nuclear deal, paving the way for a Democratic renewal after Obama leaves office. And finally, Israel’s public battle against Obama’s deal paved the way its abrogation by his successor.

All in all, a rather glorious defeat.

About Caroline B. Glick

I grew up in Chicago’s ultra-liberal Hyde Park neighborhood. Hyde Park’s most famous resident is Barack Obama.

I made aliyah to Israel in 1991, two weeks after receiving my BA in Political Science from another radical liberal stronghold — Columbia University in New York, otherwise known as Beir Zeit on the Hudson.

I joined the Israel Defense Forces that summer and served as an officer for five and a half years.

From 1994-1996, as an IDF captain, I served as Coordinator of Negotiations with the PLO in the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. In this capacity I was a core member of Israel’s negotiating team with the Palestinians.

In 1997 and 1998 I served as assistant foreign policy advisor Binyamin Netanyahu during his first stint as Prime Minister.

From 1998-2000 I returned to the US for graduate school. I received a Master’s in Public Policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Although I spent most of my free time hiking in New England, it did not escape my attention that much of the faculty at the Kennedy School was not particularly fond of America, (Alinsky’s organizing methods were taught in a required first year course for MPP candidates) — or of Israel.

The latter truth was exposed for all the world to see when my former professor Steve Walt co-wrote the updated version of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion with his friend from my childhood hometown – University of Chicago’s John Mearshimer.

After I finished graduate school I returned to Israel and began writing at Makor Rishon newspaper, (Hebrew). I served as READ THE REST

Justifying Homosexuality with ‘Love your Enemies’?


Marcus Hardie at UC Hastings College of Law

Charles Mark Hardie responds to the cross post “This is Why we Call the Gay LobbyFascist!” in which I offered a pro-Bible/pro-author introduction. My cross post is date 3/11/15 and author Matt Barber’s original post was 3/10/15. Mr. Hardie’s comment was posted 8/7/15. It took Mr. Hardie nearly five months to find or respond on my blog. I suspect the case was more like to find. Barber’s criticism (and my concurrence) has to do with Mr. Hardie’s defense of the homosexual lifestyle.

This is how I’m handling Mr. Hardie’s self-justification. I’ll start with his comment. Follow the comment with a snapshot of his profile. And then following the profile with a short refutation of his self-justification.

This is his comment:

A FIGHTER FOR FAITH-BASED VALUES

Mark Charles Hardie

August 7, 2015 at 9:52 AM

My name is Mark Charles Hardie. I wrote the essay “Gay People Are Gods” [HuffPo Link to original article] which was published on “The Huffington Post”. I wish to articulate a few things clearly and absolutely: (1) I believe in Almighty God (2) I believe that God created the universe (3) I am a man of unbreakable faith (4) I have always been a faith-based leader (5) I believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Savior (6) I believe that the Holy Bible should be promoted in America and throughout the world (7) I am both a Roman Catholic and a member of the Jewish community.

In my essay, I meant to write “Gay People Are God’s” which would mean something like “Gay People Are Children of God” or “Gay People Belong To God”. In other worlds, I meant to say that God Almighty created all human beings–both gay and straight. Jesus of Nazareth says, “Love your enemies”. I think Jesus wanted to open our hearts to people who may seem different. I was speaking of radical Godly compassion.

In my opinion, the United States of America needs to turn to God in order to remain a strong country. The Christian faith is the foundation and bedrock of American society. Christianity is American culture, period.

In order for America to stand against our enemies, America must stand with the Lord.

While the mainstream media focuses solely on the issues of democracy and freedom, the mainstream media ignores the issues of faith, responsibility, and spiritual discipline. As leader, I will baptize America not only with water, but I will baptize America with the Holy Spirit and fire. I will cleanse this world with flame in the name of the Cross.

I am a candidate for both President of the United States and United States Senator representing California. When I am elected to both offices in 2016, I will not accept the US Senate seat. I will bring America back to trust in God. I will promote God Almighty among our allies by engaging in a speaking tour of churches in Europe. I call upon the United States, Europe, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand to launch a “Christian Crusade Against Terrorism & Extremism”.

Finally, my foreign policy is based upon the following hymn: “Onward Christian soldiers, marching as to war, with the cross of Jesus, going on before”.

Let us raise the banner of our Lord and place “Mark Charles Hardie” in the White House.

Thank you.
May God bless America

“I wish to articulate a few things clearly” is what the first paragraph should have said.

Thank you.
Mark Charles Hardie

[Blog Editor: Mr. Hardie and have edited the first paragraph in the first comment with your correct phrasing articulated just above. For the sake of the readers this is what the original wording was: I wish to say articulate a things clearly.]

I decided to do a little Google investigating of Mark Charles Hardie. Not a lot comes up. He does have an Amazon page with several book titles that have odd names. Here is Mr. Hardie’s HuffPo bio:

My name is Mark Charles Hardie. I am a candidate for president of the United States of America. Also, I am a candidate for United States Senator representing California (2016).

I have invited former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, former Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano, and former United States Senator Jim DeMint to serve on my global security team.

I propose the development and deployment of the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI) to enhance America’s nuclear triad. SDI is colloquially known as “Star Wars”. It was publicly proposed by President Ronald Reagan in 1983.

I am in the process of creating the “Department of American Strategic Defense” to focus on SDI and other classified matters. I have invited Mr. Charlie McMillian, director of the Los Alamos National Laboratory and Mr. Bill Goldstein, director of the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to serve as strategic scientific consultants in the new department.

I have formed an organization called “A Trillion Points of Light” to raise awareness of social justice, fundamental fairness, and reduce poverty.

I believe “The Huffington Post” and “Arianna Huffington” are revolutionizing the world by internationalizing and democratizing news and information.

Here are some excerpts from Mr. Hardie’s LinkedIn page:

Candidate, President of the United States 2016; Candidate for United States Senator (Democrat)

Background

Summary

Here is a curious paragraph from Mark Charles Hardie’s Youtube About Page:

My name is Mark Charles Hardie. I am an attorney and human rights activist. I have lived in the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority for nearly 6 years. I have also visited Za’atari Refugee Camp in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan and the Baka Palestinian Refugee Camp in Jordan.

If you speak “Hebrew” you might want to listen to this 1:52 length Youtube video made by Mr. Hardie dressed somewhat like a Rabbi. I caught words like “Oslo” leading me to guess he is speaking of the Oslo Accords which has set the stage for the fake Palestinian people to steal Jewish land for an illegitimate Muslim state to be called Palestine. Aside from my guess (wrongly or rightly) he is a pro-Palestinian supporting the Jewish-Left paradigm that land for peace will work, the description portion of this video is campaign assertion that sounds like an active imagination:

Screen Capture of Hardie speaking Hebrew

Hmm… Let’s guess a summary of Mark Charles Hardie’s profile: He’s a Left Wing globalist, tries to attract clueless Conservative voters with a Star Wars defense umbrella and an undefined pro-business stand, yet Leftist clarity emerges in undefined agendas to rehabilitate everyone in prison, mysteriously take care of the homeless poor, mysteriously believes he can push through a hundred grand annual salary for school teachers, continuing the Obama dialogue for global peace, have African-Americans dialogue with “White” Americans for better race relations, paints a picture of being Jewish and pro-Israel yet sympathizes with illegitimate Palestinian-Arabs.

Then note again Mr. Hardie’s assertions of being a bona fide Christian with the unbiblical belief that “Love Your Enemies” erases God Almighty’s pronouncement that homosexuality is an abomination in His sight.

(1) I believe in Almighty God

(2) I believe that God created the universe

(3) I am a man of unbreakable faith

(4) I have always been a faith-based leader

(5) I believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Savior

(6) I believe that the Holy Bible should be promoted in America and throughout the world

(7) I am both a Roman Catholic and a member of the Jewish community.

With this great sounding list of beliefs he cancels the legitimacy with words such as this:

“Jesus of Nazareth says, ‘Love your enemies’. I think Jesus wanted to open our hearts to people who may seem different. I was speaking of radical Godly compassion.”

The context of “Love your enemies” is when “enemies” do you harm out of wicked thinking, vicious intent or just plain Christ-faith hatred. The “Love” here has nothing to do with validating sin, but rather being an example to overcome sin and evil with good. Part of “good” is living a God-kind-of-life not a sin-kind-of-life. Homosexuality is a sin.

Christians are not to embrace homosexuality but rather to show a person how to overcome darkness with light. Just for clarity “light” is not an act or acts of violence against a practicing homosexual because he has chosen an ungodly lifestyle. A Christian is to share the Good News of deliverance from bondage to acceptance of a wicked generation. Any person rejecting Christ’s Good News is to be treated with respect but by kicking the dust of their dwelling off your feet moving on to separate yourself from the practitioner of darkness.

The words of Jesus Christ the Son of God, Savior and Messiah:

11“Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12And when you go into a household, greet it. 13If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city! (Matthew 10:11-15 NKJV)

Matt Barber’s criticism of Mark Charles Hardie still stands. Be advised not to vote for deceptive candidates who share tidbits acceptable to most but abrogate the same acceptable tidbits with ungodly beliefs and despotic big government Left Wing utopianism.
