In light of the Islamic terrorist bombing in New York and New Jersey, the accurate background audio report behind the Left Stream Media video feeds is one of the best reality commentary contradicting the politically correct crowd – EVER! I have to tell ya, I’ve never been a big fan of any information sourced from any kind of Alex Jones media; NEVERTHELESS, this video is so spot on it should be voiced over live on ALL news networks!

ALSO in light of the Islamic terrorist bombing look at the numerous Islamic terrorist attacks on American soil that Obama has tried to excuse as work-place violence or lone wolf terrorism as if no violence perpetrated by Muslims has nothing to do with Islam. THAT IS MULTICULTURAL LIBERAL HOGWASH!

 

Terrorism on U.S, Soil Since Obama Administration

 

1. LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS (2009)

 

The victims: 1 U.S. soldier killed, 1 injured

The killer: Born Carlos Bledsoe in Tennessee, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad converted to Islam as a teenager. He shot and killed a soldier outside a recruiting center. Reportedly, Muhammad was angry about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and how the United States had treated Muslims.

2. FT. HOOD, TEXAS (2009)

 

The killer: Major Nidal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist, opened fire inside the medical center at Ft. Hood. He was reportedly upset about an upcoming deployment to Iraq. Later, in 2014, Hasan petitioned to become a citizen of the Islamic State.

 

3. BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (2013)

 

The victims: 3 people were killed, including a young child. More than 100 people were injured, some requiring limb amputations.

The killers: Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were brothers. By all accounts, Dzhokhar was an average American college student before falling under the influence of his older brother, Tamerlan, and becoming radicalized. Tamerlan was shot by police and Dzhokhar was found after a massive manhunt. He was sentenced to death and is currently in prison.

 

4. RICHMOND, CALIFORNIA (2013)

 

The victim: Daniel Stone, a hardware store employee.

The killer: Daymond Agnew, a 34-year-old California resident. Agnew entered the hardware store and spray painted his face before stabbing Stone 17 times. He claimed that Allah had told him to do it.

 

5. SEATTLE, WASHINGTON AND WEST ORANGE, NEW JERSEY (2014)

 

The victims: Brendan Tevlin, who was shot at a traffic light. Ahmed Said and Dwone Anderson-Young, gay men who were lured from a club and shot. Leroy Henderson, also shot dead.

The killer: Ali Muhammad Brown, the killer of 4 men in 2 states, is a self-proclaimed ISIS supporter. He was the first person to be charged under New Jersey’s 9/11 terror laws. He explained the killings as retribution for Muslim deaths in the Middle East.

6. MOORE, OKLAHOMA (2014)

 

The victim: Colleen Hufford was decapitated at the food plant where she worked.

The killer: Alton Nolen converted to Islam and filled his Facebook feed with angry statements about Americans, women, and Judgement Day.

 

7. MORGANTON, NORTH CAROLINA (2014)

 

The victim: John Bailey Clark was robbed, shot, and buried in a shallow grave near his home.

The killer: Teenager and ISIS supporter Justin Sullivan murdered and robbed his 74-year-old neighbor. He hoped to use the stolen money to purchase an assault rifle and carry out more attacks.

 

8. CHATTANOOGA, TENNESSEE (2015)

 

The victims: 5 U.S. service members were killed, 4 Marines and a Navy officer.

The killer: Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez opened fire at a recruitment center in a strip mall before driving to a Naval support center to continue his rampage.

 

9. SAN BERNARDINO, CALIFORNIA (2015)

 

The victims: 14 people were killed and 22 injured while they enjoyed a county employees’ holiday party.

The killers: Couple Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik assembled an arsenal of weapons and plotted for almost a year before they were married. Farouk was an American, Malik was from Pakistan. Both were shot dead by police.

 

10. ORLANDO, FLORIDA (2016)

 

The victims: 49 people were killed and 53 more were injured at a popular LGBT nightclub in Orlando. The club was hosting a Latin night.

The killer: Omar Mateen was born in the U.S. to Afghan parents. Family and acquaintances say he didn’t seem particularly devout, but his father claims he was enraged by the sight of two men kissing. Mateen was killed by police. His attack was the deadliest mass shooting in American history.

The above list of 10 Islamic terror attacks on American soil was excerpted: LIST OF EVERY ISLAMIC TERROR ATTACK SINCE OBAMA TOOK OFFICE; By SIGRID JOHANNESIndependent Journal Review; I Love My Freedom; Source date – July 2016)

 

The New York-New Jersey Islamic terrorist bombing can be number 11. And number 12 is the Islamic terrorist attack of Somali Muslim who had gained employment as a security guard went around a Minnesota mall asking patrons if they were Muslim with a “no answer” being followed with a knife slash. Here are Ann Corcoran’s (of Refugee Resettlement Watch) thoughts on the Somali jihadist in a Minnesota mall:

 

Update September 20th: Here is a story about his original resettlement, as a child, in Fargo, ND. It is a short drive from Fargo to St. Cloud (I drove it while on my RRW road trip this summer).

 

[Blog Editor: Here’s the John Houk Youtube version of the Valley News Live report from St Cloud Minnesota:

 

VIDEO: Who was Dahir Adan, the man praised as a soldier of the Islam State]

 

 

I guess as time goes on we will hear if he came to the US as a refugee youngster and benefited from the generosity of US and state taxpayers or whether he is a relatively new refugee (the vast majority of the Somalis in the US came in through the Refugee Admissions Program).

 

Only a small fraction of the nearly 200,000 Somalis in the US now came in through other legal means (some came illegally across our southern border).

 

Remember what MN Governor Dayton said last year, don’t like our Somalis get out of Minnesota!

 

It is simply pathetic that a couple of hours ago all of the officials arrayed in a lengthy St. Cloud press conference—the mayor (who has been a vocal advocate for the expanding Somali enclave there), the police, even the FBI couldn’t bring themselves to identify the dead perpetrator, but waited (did they wait on purpose?) to give the ‘Somali community’ time to spin the story.

 

He was a good boy, no violent past, a good student, a college student in St. Cloud. (Maybe even a security guard!) So what! He was first and foremost a Jihadist. And, Obama and his Lefty friends who chalk up ‘violent extremism’ to poverty and lack of opportunity can just shut up! This guy had prospects for a good future and he chose jihad for Allah instead.

 

Here is Michael Leahy at Breibart:

 

The Saint Cloud Times is reporting Dahir Adan, a member of the local Somali Community, was the man who attacked nine people at a local mall Saturday while shouting about “Allah.”

A short time earlier, St. Cloud Somali-American community members identified the deceased suspect as Dahir Adan.

Leaders of the Somali-American community in St. Cloud gathered Sunday with his family and issued a statement of sympathy for the family and the nine victims of the attack.

Community leader Abdul Kulane said as far as the family and community know, the suspect did not have any history of violence. He was known as a smart, accomplished student at Apollo High School. He was a junior at St. Cloud State University, Kulane said. Adan was also working part-time as a private security officer, leaders said.

 

At a press conference on Sunday, St. Cloud, Minnesota city officials refused to release the identity of the man who attacked nine people with a knife in a local mall Saturday night while shouting “Allah.” The attacker was killed by an off-duty police officer from a nearby city who happened to be in the mall at the time.

 

Continue here.

 

And then here Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit has more where we learn that he was originally from Fargo, ND (another major resettlement city not far from St. Cloud) from the Jihadists facebook page. Thank the Lutherans of Minnesota and North Dakota for changing America by changing its people.  (Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service is the major federal contractor with subcontractors in READ THE REST (Knife-wielding attacker (who injured 9) in St. Cloud mall was a Somali; By Ann Corcoran; Refugee Resettlement Watch; 9/18/16)

 

Here is the account of former policemen turned firearms training owner Jason Falconer taking down the Islamic terrorist Dahir Adan:

 

Jason Falconer, an off-duty police officer and owner of Tactical Advantage, a firearms training company, was shopping at Macy’s when he saw Adan heading his way. After identifying himself as a law-enforcement officer, Falconer ordered Adan to the ground. David Unze, a reporter for the St. Cloud Times, took it from there:

 

The suspect got down [and] almost immediately … lunged at Falconer with the knife.

Falconer fired once, and the suspect went down. He got up and lunged at Falconer, who shot him again. The suspect then tried again to lunge at Falconer who fired a third shot that killed the suspect.

When the last shot was fired, the suspect was so close to Falconer that Falconer was falling backwards as the suspect came at him. (Minnesota Knife-wielding Attacker Killed by Off-duty Officer; By Bob Adelmann; New American; 9/19/16)

 

Bob Owens writing at Bearing Arms has a decent bio of Jason Falconer and wonders why the MSM fails to point out that Falconer was actually a civilian packing a gun while shopping? The civilian Falconer saved lives with his gun permit to carry a weapon!

 

The Dems, including President Barack Hussein Obama and Crooked Hillary, have gone out of their way to promote bringing in even MORE Muslim refugees from Islamic terrorist infested nations. Sure both the Afghan Islamic bomber Ahmad Khan Rahami and knife wielding Somali born Islamic terrorist came young to the USA and became naturalized citizens, but THE POINT is they both came as refugees or immigrants from Islamic terrorist riddled areas. Were they radicalized to terrorism as kids? It is quite doubtful that was the case. Do they belong to a faith whose earliest beginnings was based on terrorist raids for booty, slaves, sex-slaves and a choice of oppressed 2nd class living, convert or die? THIS IS THE VERY REASON Muslims should be required extra vetting with relation to the probability of assimilation into American culture. NO ASSIMILATION – NO IMMIGRATION!

 

Here is a video graph that one of my friends Jyrki left as a comment to another post that help Americans (and Westerners in general understand having the counter-culture Islam infest our nation or nations:

Islam will overwhelm Christendom unless Christians recognize the demographic realities, begin reproducing again, and share the gospel with Muslims.

 

America’s Left went out of its way to vainly attempt dissuade any attempt of blaming Islamic terrorism for terrorist attacks – NYC Mayor de Blasio:

 

The mayor’s statement is absolutely incoherent. It’s “intentional” but not “terrorism.” All right. So this means the bomb in Chelsea was not an accident, but was put there deliberately in order to kill and maim. That seems to be the very definition of terrorism, but the mayor, a good friend of Islamic supremacists such as Linda Sarsour, assures us it is not terrorism.

 

What on earth could he mean? Remember that de Blasio is indefatigably committed to the mainstream dogma that Islamic jihad terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, and indeed, that “Islam” and “jihad” must never be mentioned in connection with terrorism. He won’t mention Islamic jihadis, but by saying that there is no connection to “terrorism” in this bombing, he is strongly implying that it was not committed by Muslims. His politically correct speech restrictions make it impossible for him to speak clearly and coherently about this, and so he entangles himself in a contradiction. Any other kind of terrorist could have planted this bomb, and it was certainly terrorism, but as de Blasio knows that most people (understandably) connect terrorism with Islam and Muslims, but can’t say that without violating his PC speech code, and was anxious above all to exonerate Islam, he said that the bombing was “intentional” but not “terrorism.” READ THE REST (NYC: IED explosion wounds 29, Muslims cheer on Twitter, de Blasio says “intentional,” but not “terrorism”; By  ROBERT SPENCER; Jihad Watch; 9/18/16 7:19 AM)

 

The Dailey Wire is telling us today (9/20/16) that de Blasio wants Americans to look the other way because he is promoting with his Leftist-in-Chief and Crooked Hillary that even more of an influx Muslim refugees should be in the USA!

 

Obama’s Tuesday UN speech was essentially to accept globalism over national sovereignty as the norm spouting skewed factoids as usual to back up his Left Wing globalization message. I am going to cherry pick BHO’s globalist notions in regard to bringing counter-culture Muslims into the West and into the USA in particular (Yes Leftists, I used the phrase “cherry pick”. Get over it):

 

 

And as these real problems have been neglected, alternative visions of the world have pressed forward both in the wealthiest countries and in the poorest: Religious fundamentalism; the politics of ethnicity, or tribe, or sect; aggressive nationalism; a crude populism — sometimes from the far left, but more often from the far right — which seeks to restore what they believe was a better, simpler age free of outside contamination.

 

We cannot dismiss these visions. They are powerful. They reflect dissatisfaction among too many of our citizens. I do not believe those visions can deliver security or prosperity over the long term, but I do believe that these visions fail to recognize, at a very basic level, our common humanity. Moreover, I believe that the acceleration of travel and technology and telecommunications — together with a global economy that depends on a global supply chain — makes it self-defeating ultimately for those who seek to reverse this progress. Today, a nation ringed by walls would only imprison itself.

 

So the answer cannot be a simple rejection of global integration. Instead, we must work together to make sure the benefits of such integration are broadly shared, and that the disruptions — economic, political, and cultural — that are caused by integration are squarely addressed. 

 

 

… It does not require succumbing to a soulless capitalism that benefits only the few, but rather recognizes that economies are more successful when we close the gap between rich and poor, and growth is broadly based. And that means respecting the rights of workers so they can organize into independent unions and earn a living wage. It means investing in our people — their skills, their education, their capacity to take an idea and turn it into a business. It means strengthening the safety net that protects our people from hardship and allows them to take more risks — to look for a new job, or start a new venture.

 

[Blog Editor: Here comes the egregious Leftist lie based on cooked statistics]

 

These are the policies that I’ve pursued here in the United States, and with clear results. American businesses have created now 15 million new jobs. After the recession, the top one percent of Americans were capturing more than 90 percent of income growth. But today, that’s down to about half. Last year, poverty in this country fell at the fastest rate in nearly 50 years. And with further investment in infrastructure and early childhood education and basic research,

 

So just as I’ve pursued these measures here at home, so has the United States worked with many nations to curb the excesses of capitalism — not to punish wealth, but to prevent repeated crises that can destroy it. That’s why we’ve worked with other nations to create higher and clearer standards for banking and taxation — because a society that asks less of oligarchs than ordinary citizens will rot from within.   [Blog Editor: Like secretively laundering $1.7 billion in American money into foreign European currency and sending it in an unmarked cargo jet to Iran???] That’s why we’ve pushed for transparency and cooperation in rooting out corruption, and tracking illicit dollars, because markets create more jobs when they’re fueled by hard work, and not the capacity to extort a bribe. That’s why we’ve worked to reach trade agreements that raise labor standards and raise environmental standards, as we’ve done with the Trans-Pacific Partnership, so that the benefits are more broadly shared. [Blog Editor: Does this transparency and fighting corruption crap sound just a tad bit twisted to anyone else???]

 

 

[Blog Editor: Can you catch the basic Marxism phrase –] It turns out building accountable institutions is hard work — the work of generations. The gains are often fragile. Sometimes we take one step forward and then two steps back. [Blog Editor: Then comes the criticism of culture based on national sovereignty] In countries held together by borders drawn by colonial powers, with ethnic enclaves and tribal divisions, politics and elections can sometimes appear to be a zero-sum game. 

 

 

[Blog Editor: BHO implies that the “strongman” state is the institution of the Conservative Right exonerating the agenda of authoritarian global Left] Without this evolution, ultimately expectations of people will not be met; suppression and stagnation will set in. And history shows that strongmen are then left with two paths — permanent crackdown, which sparks strife at home, or scapegoating enemies abroad, which can lead to war.

 

[Blog Editor: Now comes another lie from BHO – friend to Marxist terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn (See Also HERE) and admirer of Marxist Saul Alinsky and Frank Marshall Davis]

 

Now, I will admit, my belief that governments serve the individual, and not the other way around, is shaped by America’s story. Our nation began with a promise of freedom that applied only to the few. But because of our democratic Constitution, because of our Bill of Rights, because of our ideals, ordinary people were able to organize, and march, and protest, and ultimately, those ideals won out —

 

[Blog Editor: After the stealth lying of being an American exceptionalist believing in the American Revolutionary principles of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness with guaranteed Rights from Nature’s God comes the globalist lie of accepting counter-culture refugees because that’s just who we are – unless you are a Leftist defined racist, xenophobe, culture superiority nationalist (as in truth, justice and the American Way)]

 

This leads me to the third thing we need to do: We must reject any forms of fundamentalism, or racism, or a belief in ethnic superiority that makes our traditional identities irreconcilable with modernity. Instead we need to embrace the tolerance that results from respect of all human beings.

 

It’s a truism that global integration has led to a collision of cultures; trade, migration, the Internet, all these things can challenge and unsettle our most cherished identities. … And in Europe and the United States, you see people wrestle with concerns about immigration and changing demographics, and suggesting that somehow people who look different are corrupting the character of our countries.

 

[Blog Editor: Do you see Obama’s twisted lie? Americans don’t view people who look different as corrupting the character of our nation, RATHER sane Americans see that Islam corrupts every single principle that our Founding Fathers set in stone via our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights that Obama early pretended an affinity toward!]

 

Now, there’s no easy answer for resolving all these social forces, and we must respect the meaning that people draw from their own traditions — from their religion, from their ethnicity, from their sense of nationhood. But I do not believe progress is possible if our desire to preserve our identities gives way to an impulse to dehumanize or dominate another group. If our religion leads us to persecute those of another faith, if we jail or beat people who are gay, if our traditions lead us to prevent girls from going to school, if we discriminate on the basis of race or tribe or ethnicity, then the fragile bonds of civilization will fray. The world is too small, we are too packed together, for us to be able to resort to those old ways of thinking.

 

[Blog Editor: Here President is absolutely correct as to violence and persecution against those who believe or live differently. HOWEVER, Obama misses the point of assimilation! All those who disagree on politics, faith, lack of faith, lifestyle and etc. in American assimilation agree on one thing; viz., that we agree to disagree in assimilation. If your politics, race, religion and etc. cannot agree to disagree; then hello, YOU cannot be an American and it is time for you to LEAVE!]

 

 

And there is a military component to that. It means being united and relentless in destroying networks like ISIL, which show no respect for human life. But it also means that in a place like Syria, where there’s no ultimate military victory to be won, we’re going to have to pursue the hard work of diplomacy that aims to stop the violence, and deliver aid to those in need, and support those who pursue a political settlement and can see those who are not like themselves as worthy of dignity and respect.

 

[Blog Editor: I don’t have a problem with Obama’s thoughts about the Middle Eastern Muslims and “ISIL” above; however, if Obama’s concept of diplomacy means repatriating Muslims who have been taught from the cradle to the grave to hate Americans and Jews, then the diplomacy is best resolved in the Middle East and NOT on American soil.]

 

 

And what is true in the Middle East is true for all of us. Surely, religious traditions can be honored and upheld while teaching young people science and math, rather than intolerance. Surely, we can sustain our unique traditions while giving women their full and rightful role in the politics and economics of a nation. Surely, we can rally our nations to solidarity while recognizing equal treatment for all communities — whether it’s a religious minority in Myanmar, or an ethnic minority in Burundi, or a racial minority right here in the United States.  [Blog Editor: In the case of U.S. Americans tolerance is only valid in the case of melting pot assimilation as in E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One. Until that tradition is respected you are not welcome here. Does E Pluribus Unum hold in Israel as Obama suggests at the UN?]And surely, Israelis and Palestinians will be better off if Palestinians reject incitement and recognize the legitimacy of Israel, but Israel recognizes that it cannot permanently occupy and settle Palestinian land. 

 

Blog Editor: This is where the American Left, Obama and European Multiculturalists simply don’t get it! The land that is claimed to be occupied is NOT occupied. It is Israel’s land not only by 20th century treaties originally agreed to by early Arab leaders not infected with Nazi inspired Arab Nationalism that bred hatred of Jews, but also by the Word of God recognized as Divine by Observant Jews and devoted Christians. Present day Arabs that call themselves Palestinians are more so migrants than the Jews that were booted out of their homeland by conquering Romans wearied by continuous Jewish attempts at independence and later by intolerant Jew-hating Muslims that only tolerated 2nd class conquered Jewish dhimmis living in Muslim dominated cultures. So NO, Israelis shouldn’t have to leave their own land.]

 

 

My own family is a made up of the flesh and blood and traditions and cultures and faiths from a lot of different parts of the world — just as America has been built by immigrants from every shore. And in my own life, in this country, and as President, I have learned that our identities do not have to be defined by putting someone else down, but can be enhanced by lifting somebody else up. They don’t have to be defined in opposition to others, but rather by a belief in liberty and equality and justice and fairness.

 

[Blog Editor: The above paragraph demonstrates that Obama; ergo Crooked Hillary and the Dems; have rejected one of America’s mottos of E Pluribus Unum and believes in the Leftist Multiculturalist paradigm of all divergent cultures can differ and stand in one nation – IT’S IMPOSSIBLE!]

 

 

This is what I believe: that all of us can be co-workers with God. And our leadership, and our governments, and this United Nations should reflect this irreducible truth.

 

[Blog Editor: When Obama says, “This is I believe,” and uses the word “God,” Americans have to wonder the nature of the god he believes in considering congregating under the Black Liberation Theology Jeremiah Wright for 20 years, growing up in Indonesia under a Muslim step-father while attending Muslim religious education AND being mentored by avowed Communist Frank Marshall Davis who was also a pornographer as in a godless person.]

 

READ ENTIRETY – Blog Editor Commentary in bold text (What you missed from Barack Obama’s speech while everyone was talking about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce; By Rob Crilly; Independent; 9/20/16 18:07 – London)

 

As usual when it comes to immigration and/or Islam the Dems lie or twist the facts to transform America into a Leftist utopia that will end the Original Intent of the Founding Fathers’ vision for a unique Republic where government was by the People and Civil Rights encoded into the stone of the U.S. Constitution. The Living Constitution of American Leftists renders our Constitution unrecognizable.

The Left’s only enemy


PALWATCH- Christian-Jew-Hatred

Evidently the nation of Israel is experiencing the same Left-Right polarization that the USA is experiencing. Mahmoud Abbas stood at the UN podium and spoke egregious lie after lie (See Commentary on Abbas Lies) about Israel. The Israeli Right quite properly expressed the reality about Arabs that call themselves Palestinians; i.e. LIAR.

 

But here is some incredulity! The Israeli Left and the American Left praised the leader of the Palestinian Authority (PA – See Also Jewish Virtual Library) and Chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO) as a great seeking Liberty and Freedom for the non-existent group of Arabs that maintain they are Palestinians. Arabs as Palestinians did not exist until the Arab League via Egypt set up the PLO (Early Seeds of PLO: HERE and HERE) to create a reason for continuous attacks on Independent Israel to exterminate all the Jews living there. That creation date was 1964. Israel’s hard fought Independence from about SIX invading Muslim Arab armies were won in 1948.

 

Caroline Glick exposes the Leftists of America and Israel. Her theme is that American Leftists and Israeli Leftists don’t see a foreign enemy; rather they see their fellow citizens of the Right as the enemy. If the Left succeeds, Israel’s existence will be very tenuous.

The Left’s only enemy

epa00926738 Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (R), Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal (C|) and Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh walk inside the Grand Mosque in Mecca early on Friday 09 February 2007. Rival Palestinian factions sign a deal to form a unity government, hoping to end bloodshed between their followers and to win back Western aid halted because of the hostility of Hamas to Israel.  EPA/SUHAIB SALEM / POOL

 

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’s legal term in office expired nearly four years ago. But his supporters don’t care. In Israel, Washington and throughout the world, Abbas’s supporters extol the authoritarian leader as a great moderate. In 2002, desperately searching for a face for the Palestinians that wasn’t Yasser Arafat’s face, the Left pushed Abbas out from behind Arafat’s shadow. Abbas, who served as Arafat’s deputy for 39 years, was upheld as a great moderate and placed in the invented position of Palestinian prime minister.

 

The fact that Abbas was an inveterate Jew-hater who spent four decades in the senior leadership of a terrorist organization and whose doctoral dissertation was a long denial of the Holocaust, was brushed aside.

 

His leftist supporters don’t care that he says Israel has no right to exist. They are untroubled by his 2008 rejection of then-prime minister Ehud Olmert’s unprecedentedly generous offer of peace and Palestinian statehood. They don’t mind that Abbas has refused to negotiate peace with Israel for the past four years. They don’t care that he has signed two unity government deals with Hamas or that he seeks to gain sovereignty for a Palestinian state through the UN and so establish a Palestinian state in a formal state of war with Israel.

 

They don’t care. But most Israelis do. Due to their recognition of his hatred for Israel and due to the terrorism Abbas has condoned and financed for decades, the vast majority of Israelis do not consider him a potential partner for peace. They do not believe that either Abbas or the Palestinians as a whole are remotely interested in being appeased by Israel.

 

As a consequence, most Israelis greeted Abbas’s speech at the UN General Assembly last week with indifference. In that speech, Abbas made clear – yet again – that he remains Arafat’s loyal deputy. The majority of Abbas’s speech involved a litany of libels against Israel, which he accused of everything from terrorism to apartheid, colonialism, racism, murder, theft, etc., etc., etc.

 

Then he moved on to his demands. In addition to reinstating his demand that Israel agree to every Palestinian demand as a precondition for negotiations, Abbas demanded that Israel release all Palestinian terrorists from its prisons.

 

No, none of Abbas’s attacks had an iota of truth to them.

 

But who cares? Abbas certainly doesn’t. And neither do his supporters. Their support for Abbas has nothing to do with what he says or does. It has to do with who they are and what they want. Abbas is their prop, not their partner.

 

Abbas’s Israeli supporters are the core of far-leftists who brought us the phony peace process with the PLO. Two thousand dead Israelis later, and with no peace in sight, their camp is much smaller today than it was in 1993. But it is still dedicated. And it is overpopulated by members of the media.

 

TIPPING HIS hat to this group, this week Defense Minister Ehud Barak announced in a media interview that he thinks that Israel should unilaterally withdraw from much of Judea and Samaria.

 

For most Israelis, Barak’s plan is self-evidently insane.

 

We left Gaza and see the consequences of that unilateral withdrawal every day as southern Israel is bombarded with missiles and rockets. We left and Gaza was transformed into a hub for global jihad, increasingly indistinguishable from Sinai. The very notion that our defense chief could suggest adopting an identical strategy for Judea and Samaria is both obscene and frightening.

 

What can he be thinking? Barak is thinking about elections, which are apparently about to be called. Barak thinks his best bet politically is to try to win the support of Abbas’s ever shrinking support base.

 

Barak lost his political base when he left the Labor Party and formed his own Independence faction with other breakaway Labor politicians at the beginning of 2011. He needs Abbas’s Israeli supporters to vote for him if he is to get elected to the next Knesset. Even more crucially, Barak needs Abbas’s supporters in the Israeli media. So to win their support, he opted to run on a platform of expelling Jews from their homes.

 

Barak’s move doesn’t tell us anything we don’t already know about him. He remains the political opportunist he has always been. His move is interesting because of what it reveals about the nature of Israel’s Left.

 

There is no rational way to argue that Israel can gain any advantage by surrendering Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians. If Israel departs, either Abbas will gobble up the territory and demand more, or he will swallow the concession and get swallowed by Hamas, which will demand more – as happened in Gaza.

 

Either way, Israel loses.

 

But that doesn’t matter for the Left. The Left continues to support Israeli withdrawals because its members know that the biggest loser of such an action won’t be Israel as a whole. It will be the Israeli Right. And that is all the Left cares about.

 

The only enemy they are interested in fighting, the only adversary they wish to defeat, is their fellow Israelis. And in a bid to win their support at the ballot box – and on the evening news – Barak has decided to embrace their cause. He will fight their fight against their Israeli enemies for them.

 

The Israeli Left is not alone in its belief that its number one priority is to destroy its domestic political opposition. Throughout the Western world, the political Left is increasingly rallying around positions that are in fundamental conflict with their nation’s interests as well as with the specific ideological commitments of the Left, for the sole purpose of gaining and maintaining power.

 

In recent weeks, the Left in the US has exposed its motivations and purpose in profoundly troubling ways. If Jewish settlement of the Land of Israel is the core of the Zionist revolution, freedom of speech is the foundation of America. Without Jewish settlement, there is no Israel. Without freedom of speech, there is no America.

 

IN RECENT weeks, US President Barack Obama and all of his senior aides and supporters have launched an assault on freedom of speech. They have attacked previously unknown figures because they dared to exercise their freedom of speech to produce an anti-Islamic film and broadcast it on YouTube. The White House pressured Google (which owns YouTube) to take the movie down. Obama’s media supporters have gone along with this shocking assault on bedrock American principles.

 

The Left’s support for Obama’s bid to repress freedom of speech in relation to the movie was not an isolated incident. Today the enlightened leftists of New York and Washington are apoplectic because a federal judge required New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority to post paid advertisements by the Stop the Islamization of America human rights group calling for Americans to support Israel against jihad.

 

The content of the ads is self-evidently reasonable. They read, “In any war between the savage and the civilized man, support the civilized man. Support Israel. Defeat Jihad.”

 

SIOA’s founder Pamela Geller submitted the ads to the MTA last year in response to a rash of anti- Israel ads calling for the US to end its support for the Jewish state. Those ads were published on New York buses and subways and on public transportation around the US.

 

The MTA rejected SIOA’s ad but the group sued. Citing the US Constitution, the court required the MTA to post them. When after a year’s delay the ads were finally posted last week, the US Left in the media and beyond had a collective fit.

 

From The New York Times to radical rabbis to pro- Islamic Christian pastors to The Washington Post, everyone is wringing their hands. In a televised debate with Geller, the anti-Israel evangelical pastor Rev. Jim Wallis condemned the ads, told Geller she was going to get Christians killed, (by what or whom, he never said), and demanded that Geller silence herself. As he put it, “Stop talking.”

 

It is important to be clear. The American Left doesn’t have a problem with free speech, per se. And they aren’t concerned – as Wallis would have you believe – that calling jihad savagery is going to get people killed, (by not-at-all savage jihadists).

 

The problem with messages like Geller’s is that talk about jihad distracts people from what the Left wants them to be thinking about.

 

Like the Israeli Left, the American Left doesn’t want Americans to think about the actual threats to the US emanating from the Islamic world. They want the public to think about what for them is the only real threat to their values and their ability to win and wield power.

 

That threat doesn’t emanate from the Islamic world where women are treated worse than farm animals, homosexuals are hanged in public squares, Christians are forcibly converted and assaulted, churches are burned to the ground, the annihilation of the Jewish people throughout the world is an ardent desire, and “Death to America” is a political program.

 

For the American Left, the primary threat to their way of life comes from people who oppose abortions and gay marriage and gun control. It comes from people who oppose unionization of government workers and nationalization of healthcare.

 

And it comes from people like Geller who state the obvious about jihad.

 

The reason that Islam is supposed to be immune from criticism is that for American leftists as for Israeli leftists, the only important battle is the one against domestic foes. And just as the abysmal results of leftist policies have left the Israeli Left with no choice but to shoot the messengers, so too the American Left must deal with policy failure by silencing the opposition.

 

In Israel, leftist appeasement of Palestinian terrorists has led to a horrific death toll and the obvious absence of peace. So the Left must silence those who have the temerity to oppose that failed policy. The Right’s most visible members are the religious Zionists, who are disproportionately situated beyond the 1949 armistice lines, and so the Left must destroy them through expulsions, no matter what the cost to Israel.

 

In America, the Left’s most conspicuous failure is its claim to promote women’s rights, equality and civil liberties in the culture war, even as it defends the Islamic world’s addiction to female genital mutilation, forced marriages, honor killings and executions of homosexuals for the “crime” of being gay. So the Left must silence critics of jihad and Islamism, and hope no one will notice its hypocrisy.

 

The upshot of all of this is that the Left must be denied its ability to dominate national discourses. Because Abbas and the pathologically Jew-hating society he leads is a threat to the Jewish state, while religious Zionists are not. And the assaults on American embassies throughout the Islamic world are not due to Internet movies, but to the savagery inherent in jihadist Islam.

 

In these perilous times we cannot permit ourselves to be led astray by those who insist we are our worst enemies.
