SYRIA: U.S.-BACKED REBELS BEHIND ATTACKS ON ISRAEL

Jewish state fires back with missiles targeting Damascus regime

by AARON KLEIN

TEL AVIV – It was the Syrian opposition and not the Syrian government behind the firing Sunday and yesterday at the Israeli border, a top Syrian official claimed to WND.

The Syrian official accused the jihadist opposition of attempting to draw Israel into the conflict to aid the rebels by targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

“Why would we fire at Israel?” asked the official, speaking on condition his name be withheld. “We have no interest in getting Israel to attack the Syrian military.”

The rebels are backed by the U.S. and international community.

The border incidents began Saturday, when a round of gunfire coming from the Syrian side hit an Israeli Defense Forces jeep on routine patrol in the northern Golan Heights. Another round was fired from Syria targeted the same area in Israel today.

The gunfire came from a region on the Syrian side of the border where rebels have been attempting to seize control of a border town these last few days.

Israel Sunday responded with a missile attack that destroyed a Syrian army machine-gun position despite questions about whether the Syrian army was behind the fire into Israel.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon made clear he views Assad bearing the ultimate responsibility for any attacks from his side of the border.

Ya’alon’s office released this statement: “We view the fire from Syria last night and this morning at IDF troops in Israeli territory as severe. The IDF responded in accordance with government policy. Every breach of Israeli sovereignty and each firing from the Syrian side will be met with an immediate response to silence the source of fire as we identify them. We see the Syrian regime as being responsible for every violation of our sovereignty.”

Today’s round of violence comes as the rebels are reportedly being fingered in last week’s alleged chemical attack in the Syrian town of Khan al-Assal, west of Aleppo.

Britain’s Telegraph reported Sunday the Syrian military is said to believe that a homemade, locally manufactured rocket was by rebels fired, containing a form of chlorine known as CL17, easily available as a swimming-pool cleaner. Syria claims the warhead contained a quantity of the gas, dissolved in saline solution.

Informed Mideast security officials speaking to WND further blamed the rebels for the chemical attack.

The officials said it appears the rebels are attempting to create a humanitarian crisis to precipitate the deployment of NATO to fight the Assad regime.

Globalist doctrine

Any NATO deployment would likely come under the banner of Responsibility to Protect.

Responsibility to Protect, or Responsibility to Act, as cited by President Obama, is a set of principles, now backed by the United Nations, based on the idea that sovereignty is not a privilege but a responsibility that can be revoked if a country is accused of “war crimes,” “genocide,” “crimes against humanity” or “ethnic cleansing.”

The term “war crimes” has at times been indiscriminately used by various U.N.-backed international bodies, including the International Criminal Court, or ICC, which applied it to Israeli anti-terror operations in the Gaza Strip. There has been fear the ICC could be used to prosecute U.S. troops.

Billionaire activist George Soros’ Open Society Institute is also one of only three non-governmental funders of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect, the group that devised the doctrine.

Obama’s national security adviser, Samantha Power, helped to found Responsibility to Protect, which was also devised by several controversial characters, including Palestinian legislator Hanan Ashrawi, a staunch denier of the Holocaust who long served as the deputy of late Palestinian Liberation Organization leader Yasser Arafat.

Power, in April, was named the head of the new White House Atrocities Prevention Board.

The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, founded by Power, had a seat on the advisory board of the 2001 commission that original founded Responsibility to Protect.

The commission is called the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty. It invented the term “responsibility to protect” while defining its guidelines.

The Carr Center is a research center concerned with human rights located at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University.

Power was Carr’s founding executive director and headed the institute at the time it advised in the founding of Responsibility to Protect. With Power’s Carr Center on the advisory board, the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty first defined the Responsibility to Protect doctrine.

Soros-funded

The Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect is the world’s leading champion of the military doctrine.

Soros’ Open Society Institute is a primary funder and key proponent of the Global Centre for Responsibility to Protect. Several of the doctrine’s main founders sit on boards with Soros.

Activists Ramesh Thakur and Gareth Evans, for example, are the original founders. The two sit on multiple boards with Soros.

Board members of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect include former U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan, former Ireland President Mary Robinson and South African activist Desmond Tutu.

Robinson and Tutu have made solidarity visits to the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip as members of a group called The Elders, which includes former President Jimmy Carter.

Annan once famously stated: “State sovereignty, in its most basic sense, is being redefined – not least by the forces of globalization and international cooperation. States are … instruments at the service of their peoples and not vice versa.”

Right to ‘penetrate nation-states’ borders’

Soros himself outlined the fundamentals of Responsibility to Protect in a 2004 Foreign Policy magazine article titled “The People’s Sovereignty: How a New Twist on an Old Idea Can Protect the World’s Most Vulnerable Populations.”

In the article, Soros asserted, “True sovereignty belongs to the people, who in turn delegate it to their governments.”

“If governments abuse the authority entrusted to them and citizens have no opportunity to correct such abuses, outside interference is justified,” Soros wrote. “By specifying that sovereignty is based on the people, the international community can penetrate nation-states’ borders to protect the rights of citizens.

“In particular, the principle of the people’s sovereignty can help solve two modern challenges: the obstacles to delivering aid effectively to sovereign states, and the obstacles to global collective action dealing with states experiencing internal conflict.”

More Soros ties

“Responsibility” founders Evans and Thakur served as co-chairmen on the advisory board of the International Commission on Intervention and State Sovereignty, which invented the term “responsibility to protect.”

In his capacity as co-chairman, Evans also played a pivotal role in initiating the fundamental shift from sovereignty as a right to “sovereignty as responsibility.”

Evans presented Responsibility to Protect at the July 23, 2009, United Nations General Assembly, which was convened to consider the principle.

Thakur is a fellow at the Centre for International Governance Innovation, which is in partnership with an economic institute founded by Soros.

Soros is on the executive board of the International Crisis Group, a “crisis management organization” for which Evans serves as president-emeritus.

New world order

Doctrine founder Thakur has advocated a “global rebalancing” and “international redistribution” to create a “New World Order.”

In a piece in March 2011 in the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, “Toward a New World Order,” Thakur wrote, “Westerners must change lifestyles and support international redistribution.”

He was referring to a U.N.-brokered international climate treaty in which it was argued, “Developing countries must reorient growth in cleaner and greener directions.”

In the opinion piece, Thakur then discussed recent military engagements and how the financial crisis has impacted the U.S.

“The West’s bullying approach to developing nations won’t work anymore – global power is shifting to Asia,” he wrote. “A much-needed global moral rebalancing is in train.”

Thakur continued: “Westerners have lost their previous capacity to set standards and rules of behavior for the world. Unless they recognize this reality, there is little prospect of making significant progress in deadlocked international negotiations.”

Thakur contended “the demonstration of the limits to U.S. and NATO power in Iraq and Afghanistan has left many less fearful of ‘superior’ Western power.”

God is Still on the Throne

GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE

  by Kelleigh Nelson                                                                                                             

I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such: because I think a General Government necessary for us, and there is no Form of Government but what may be a Blessing to the People if well-administered; and I believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a Course of Years and can only end in Despotism as other Forms have done before it, when the People shall become so corrupted as to need Despotic Government, being incapable of any other.” Ben Franklin

It also gives us a very special, secret pleasure to see how unaware the people around us are of what is really happening to them.” Adolph Hitler

Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.Matthew 5:44-45 KJV

Author and Pulitzer Prize Winning journalist, Christ Hedges said, “We now live in a nation where doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the press destroys information, religion destroys morals, and our banks destroy the economy.” Of course, he is right.

The day after the election, my inbox was flooded and my phone rang off the hook. Everyone was depressed, disheartened and discouraged. They knew there wasn’t much difference between Willard Romney and Obama, but another four years of a President they considered a Marxist Muslim who is communizing America, was more than they could tolerate. Tears flowed in grief, and I fully understood. Some said they were going off radar…it was over.

What we are all forgetting is that GOD IS STILL ON THE THRONE and HE’S STILL IN CHARGE! He said, “But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:33. Yes, it’s ugly and yes, it’s very bad for America, but our God loves His people. Let’s take a look at the real cause of this election.

The Reported Reasons Obama Won

One of the reasons is the dumbed down electorate who knows nothing of the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution’s Bill of Rights, much less who the candidates are or what they believe! Nevertheless, they have spoken, and we’re stuck with Ahab and Jezebel for another four years. There are two other obvious reasons I’ve heard most conservatives voice. One is voter fraud and the other is the entitlement mentality.

In a revelatory article on Fellowship of the Minds website, there is an explanation as to why the GOP will never challenge the vote fraud. Here’s what it says, “The Republican Party made an agreement 30 years ago with the Democrat Party NOT to ensure voting integrity and NOT to pursue suspected vote fraud.”

What? How can that be? Well, the story is more diverse than one would think, and all of it resulted from a lawsuit by the DNC against the RNC and the New Jersey Republican State Committee (RSC). The end result was the RNC and DNC making a Consent Decree 30 years ago in 1982. The agreement in effect gives a carte blanche to the Democrat Party to commit vote fraud in every voting district across America that has, in the language of the Consent Decree, “a substantial proportion of racial or ethnic populations.” The term “substantial proportion” is not defined. Do yourself a favor and read the article!

Romney was not wrong when he stated that 47 percent of the people would vote for Obama because they were the entitlement class. They believe the government has a responsibility to take care of them, they believe they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it.
Worse yet, they voted for this Marxist incumbent president, no matter what. These are the 47 percent of people who pay no income tax. In fact, in a recent debate between the film maker of 2016, Dinesh D’Souza, and Skeptic’s Michael Shermer, D’Souza explains the entitlement mentality quite well.

In a new book on the growth of government-funded entitlements in the US, political economist and globalist CFR member, Nicholas Eberstadt, points out that in 2010, no less than one-third of households received anti-poverty transfers while the poverty rate was less than half that (15.1 percent of the population) — and these households accounted for nearly half of all America’s children. Today, astonishingly for a wealthy country, half of all American families receive some kind of government benefit.

In fact, says Eberstadt, over the past 50 years, entitlement payments have “turned American governance upside down,” growing through good times and bad — and under Republican administrations as well as Democratic — from well under a third of the federal government’s outlays to two-thirds by 2010. Today, all the other responsibilities of government make up barely one-third of federal spending. I believe it’s far worse than what globalist Eberstadt reports, but that’s for another article.

Social Security and Medicare are not entitlements. The citizens of this country have paid into these funds all their working lives. This does not count the illegal aliens who receive benefits they are not eligible for, but were given by politicians buying their illegal votes. The reason those funds are bankrupt are many, but basically it is because these accounts have been transferred to the “general” fund and spent by our corrupt politicians, who have no regard for Constitutional limits. Of course, having said that, Social Security and Medicare are just as unconstitutional.

There are many other factors, Ron Paul’s treatment by the RNC, the failure of the Republicans to run a candidate the people would truly consider a conservative (think of Nixon, Ford, Bush, Dole, Bush Jr., McCain, Romney), no desire to vote for the “lesser of two evils,” and countless other subjective reasons. But, are any of these really the root cause?

The Real Reason Obama Won

Getting down to the nitty gritty reality of what has happened to our beloved country, the above reasons are valid on the surface, but are not the real reasons for our country’s demise.

We are no longer a nation blessed by God. How can any of us believe in our hearts that God’s Hand would continue to bless a nation who murders its unborn? We are, after all, a culture of death! We have Bill Maher saying, “We need to promote death.” We have Bill Gates saying we need to depopulate through vaccines and health care. How can we believe God would continue to bless a nation who has kicked Him and prayer out of every public function? How can we believe God would bless America when she fails to follow any of the precepts of His Word? And how can we expect God to bless America when we have a President who has turned his back on our only friend in the Middle East, Israel?

Genesis 12:1-3 is part of the unconditional Abrahamic Covenant to Israel that so few people truly understand. God said, “Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.”

We have been blessed with Messiah Jesus from the genealogical line of King David. Those families who accept Jesus as their Saviour, knowing He died for their sins, are the families of the earth who are blessed. Please, all you anti-Semites, don’t bother sending me your hate mail. God’s Word is still true.

The reasons our nation is no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave are legion, but the bottom line is our faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and His Son, our Messiah, the King of Glory, Jesus. We have abrogated our first love, and in turning our backs on God, His Hand of blessing is lifted. When we have College Students Cheering for Karl Marx, Socialism and Barack Obama, it is obvious we have failed to bring them the truth. Dave Jolly wrote in Godfather Politics that this was a Romans 1 election, and I have to agree with him.

Where are the Christians?

In the Gospel of Luke, Jesus uses a parable to urge his followers to “occupy” (Luke 19:13, KJV) until he returns. Christians are not to be passive spectators in society’s culture. While our primary task is the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20, Mark 16:15, Acts 1:8), we are to engage the culture at all levels, advancing moral principles and seeking to restrain evil. Today’s church, no matter the denomination, has failed! The 1800s were the Missionary Age, and Christians believed the world was being won for Christ. The 1900s ushered in the Age of Apostasy and we have declined in morality and Biblical truth ever since. Our responsibility includes being “salt of the earth” and “light of the world” in the public square and the corridors of government. (Matthew 5:13-14). This is how Christians prevent governments from becoming evil! Yet, we are silent!

Even in the case of flawed, corrupt, and evil governments, Christians are expected to adhere to Biblical principles, (I Timothy 2:1-2), (Romans 13:1-7), (Matthew 22:21), and (Romans 13:1-7, I Peter 2:17). However, they are not to take part in evil actions themselves and may, under certain circumstances, resort to civil disobedience (Acts 5:29). The Reverend David L. Ricken, Bishop of Green Bay, spoke the truth in a letter to his parishioners. The Bishops of the Catholic Church are standing against the government mandate to act against their teachings forced on them by Obama care. Where is the outcry from the rest of the Christian churches? Christians are encouraged to speak truth to power, as the prophet Nathan did to King David (II Samuel 12:7) and John the Baptist did with Herod Agrippa (Matthew 14:3-5). The pastors seem silent and so does the body of Christ.

What We Can and Should Do

We live in a time that can easily become turbulent and destructive to many American citizens and their families. If we want to be that “salt and light” God called us to be, this is the time! Wisdom is God given, not the result of mere human effort or ability. It is available to us through God’s Word. The beginning of a new year is upon us. I’ve found great comfort and wisdom in reading the Bible chronologically. Here is a two page chronological plan you can put in your Bible. If you know the truth, it will set you free.

Our nation needs to be on her knees in repentance to God and pleading for His mercy. Our people are following false gods, still living on the remnants of the blessings we once had thinking things will never change. Dancing With the Stars, sports, the latest movies, all of them are still more important to our people than the King of Glory, our Messiah.

As times in this country change, those of us who know the Saviour have the greatest opportunity on earth to spread the gospel…to do our primary task of the Great Commission and to bring more into the fold to know Him. This is what we can and must do!

Pray for our country, pray for our leaders (even if you’re praying David’s imprecatory psalms), read your Bible daily, talk to your friends about the Saviour of the world, and tell them what He’s done for you. Prepare for grave situations, buy and store items you may need, not only your family, but for others who may be in need. In doing so, you’ll have an opportunity to speak to them about Jesus as Saviour.

Stay on top of what is happening in the political realm as well. This is not the time to go into hiding.  “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”

UN “Human Rights” Council Gets Uppity

U.N. Human Rights Council Calls for Boycott of U.S. Companies

U.N.’s war on Israel puts American economy in crosshairs

BY: Washington Free Beacon Staff
October 25, 2012 12:56 pm

The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.

The Human Rights Council (HRC), a body dominated by Islamic countries and known for its hostility to, and heavy focus on, the Jewish State, issued the report. The George W. Bush administration refused to participate in the HRC, but President Barack Obama joined it soon after taking office. Members of the HRC include infamous human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Libya, China, and Cuba.

The Obama-approved body maintains a “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories [sic].” The current rapporteur is American college professor Richard Falk, a 9/11 “truther” who once posted an anti-Semitic cartoon on his personal blog.

In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman blasted the report and the HRC’s special rapporteur: “We believe you should have prevented the Secretariat from being a party to Mr. Falk’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Falk’s entire tenure as Special Rapporteur has served to undermine the credibility of the institution of the United Nations.”

The report attempts to instigate a campaign of boycott, divestment, sanctions, and legal action against a litany of international companies doing business in Israel. In addition to American companies, the U.N. targets include major European firms such as Veolia Environnement, Group 4 Security, the Dexia Group, the Volvo Group.

“The costs to companies and businesses of failing to respect international humanitarian law are considerable,” the report warns, “including damage to a company’s public image, impact on shareholder decisions and share price and could result in employees being criminally responsible for rights abuses.”

The report warns American employees of targeted companies that they face legal risks.

“Employees of companies can face investigation and prosecution for human rights violations committed irrespective of where the violation was committed.”

In addition to legal action against American employees of targeted companies, the Special Rapporteur “concludes that all companies that operate in or otherwise have dealings with Israeli settlements should be boycotted.” The companies should ”be prepared to accept any consequences—reputation, financial, or legal—of continuing operations.”

Should the companies continue doing business in Israel, the Human Rights Council “calls on civil society to actively pursue legal and political redress against non-complying business” and “to vigorously pursue initiatives to boycott, divest and sanction the businesses highlighted in this report” and “calls on the international community to consider requesting an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice” to punish the businesses.

When the Obama administration joined the Human Rights Council in 2009, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice pledged, “Working from within, we can make the council a more effective forum to promote and protect human rights.”

-End

As far as I am concerned, the United Nations is little more than a global organized crime outfit, and probably the most corrupt organization in all of recorded history.

Why this nation is still a member of, and contributes financially to, this gaggle of tyrant wanna-bes, child molesters, global extortionists, gun-grabbers, and aspiring, bass-ackward, third-world potentates is utterly beyond me.

Most of their compatriots are back home urinating in their own drinking water.

One would think we would have learned our lesson when the vapid League of Nations was mercifully disbanded.

This appears to me to be an attempt by the heavily Islamist-dominated “Human Rights” Council to do deliberate economic damage to Israel, Europe,  and particularly the United States.

Where I come from, that would be referred to as an act-of-war.

Of course, given the current POtuS, how long will it be before he grovels before the UN and begins another round of profuse (and damned embarrassing to us real Ahmurricans) apologies?

It would come as no surprise to me should we someday discover that our comrade mullah Dear Ruler had a hand in this in some way – and maybe a couple of feet, too. Seriously, I have become just that jaded and cynical over the last three-plus years, which is beginning to feel like an interminable decade.

I am not sure Ban Ki Moon is stupid enough to go for this, but even if he is and this is somehow implemented, it will be more than a little interesting to see how it gets enforced.

Should the UN actually try, I have the perfect response prepared:

Welcome to Ahmurrica!

Middle East in (even greater than usual) turmoil

Israel

Yesterday, Oct. 6, 2012, at around 10 am local time, the Israeli air force shot down a small unmanned droneafter it entered the south of Israel.

The drone was first spotted above the Mediterranean in the area of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip to the west of Israel, said military spokeswoman Avital Leibovich. It was kept under surveillance and followed by Israeli air force jets before it was shot down above a forest in an unpopulated area near the border with the occupied West Bank.

Troops are searching for remains of the aircraft. It is not clear from where came the drone. Local media quoted officials as saying the aircraft flew in from the west, but not from the Gaza Strip.

It is rumored that the drone is American. If so, that means Israel may be preparing to undertake a military strike (against Iran?) and is telling the Obama administration not to interfere.

Iran

Iran currency crisisIran’s rial has lost a third of its exchange value against the dollar in a week.

In Iran, the country is hurtling down the abyss as the Iranian currency, the rial, has lost a third of its exchange value against the dollar in a mere week. It is Iran’s worst financial crisis since the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s.

The Guardian reports, October 3, 2012, that hundreds of demonstrators in the Iranian capital, Tehran, clashed with riot police on Wednesday, during protests against the drastic fall in the value of the rial. The Grand Bazaar – the heartbeat of Tehran’s economy – went on strike, with various businesses shutting down. Bazaar owners and foreign exchange dealers gathered in scattered groups chanting anti-government slogans.

According to the opposition website Kaleme.com, protesters shouted “Mahmoud [Ahmadinejad] the traitor … leave politics”. Infuriated by Iran’s alleged financial and military support for Syria’s Bashar al-Assad regime, protesters also shouted “leave Syria alone, instead think of us”.  

Security forces were soon sent to quell the protests, as police used batons and teargas to try to disperse the crowds.

“They used teargas to disperse demonstrators in Ferdowsi Street and also blocked the streets close to the protests in order to prevent people joining them,” said another witness, who asked to remain anonymous. “Some shop windows in that area have been smashed and dustbins set on fire.” A number of demonstrators had been arrested, according to Kaleme.

The rial‘s devaluation and soaring prices of staple goods are the latest signs that a combination of western sanctions targeting the regime’s nuclear program and government mismanagement are compounding Iran’s economic woes.

Some Iranians expressed anger on social networking websites to the national TV’s blackout of the protests, saying it discussed the European financial crisis with little, if no coverage, of Tehran’s unrest. The authorities were also reported to have jammed signals of the BBC’s Persian service as the protest unfolded.

The government has failed to bring the rial under control despite several attempts. It has lost 57% of its value in the past three months and 75% in comparison with the end of last year. The dollar is now three times stronger than early last year. The economy minister, Shamseddin Hosseini, said the government planned to “gather up” the unofficial currency market in the latest desperate ditch to curb the crisis.

Ahmadinejad blamed the rial‘s slump on his enemies abroad and opponents at home, saying his government was the victim of a “psychological war”. Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, speaking to elites on Wednesday, said the country was under pressure because “it did not yield to the demands of tyrannies”.

Iran is one of the world’s largest oil producers and relies on crude sales as the main source of its the foreign currency reserves. To force the Iranian government to come clean about its nuclear program, the latest US and EU embargo on the imports of Iranian oil has sent the rial tailspinning and making the dollar hard to come by.

What is the response from our absentee president, the POS, to all this turmoil?

Armada from Britain & US Massing in Strait of Hormuz

OBAMA FINALLY FINDS time TO MEET WITH NETANYAHU

Battleships, aircraft carriers, minesweepers and submarines from 25 nations are converging on the strategically important Strait of Hormuz in an unprecedented show of force as Israel and Iran move towards the brink of war.

Western leaders are convinced that Iran will retaliate to any attack by attempting to mine or blockade the shipping lane through which passes around 18 million barrels of oil every day, approximately 35 per cent of the world’s petroleum traded by sea.

A blockade would have a catastrophic effect on the fragile economies of Britain, Europe the United States and Japan, all of which rely heavily on oil and gas supplies from the Gulf.

The Strait of Hormuz is one of the world’s most congested international waterways. It is only 21 miles wide at its narrowest point and is bordered by the Iranian coast to the north and the United Arab Emirates to the south.

I Hope London is Ready

I don’t know how many of you are aware that this year marks the 40th Anniversary of the 1972 Munich Olympics where the Munich Massacre took place. Palestinian terrorists took nine Israeli athletes, coaches and officials hostage, two were killed almost immediately and the others were killed later during a rescue attempt.

Here we are 40 years later and after doing some checking and a little investigating, I’m beginning to get a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach and things are starting to add up.

1. Olympic park is only about 2.6 miles from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets which according to the London census of 2001 had the largest Muslim population of all the London Buroughs at 71,389.

2. On July 7, 2005, the day after London won its bid for the 2012 Olympics, London suffered its first terrorist bombing and attempted bombings again in 2005 and 2007, this century. I don’t believe these were a coincidence but rather an early test of London’s security, granted these attacks took place years ago but what better way to lure their police and security forces into a false sense of security.

3. This year for the first time ever, Saudi Arabia is allowing its women to compete in the Olympics and seeing that more suicide attacks are being carried out by women recently, I believe this is just a little too convenient.

I sincerely hope I’m wrong and that this feeling I’m having  is just the result of an over active imagination.

Neocon Movement Jewish Plot to Destroy Islam

In my over forty-eight years of circling the sun on this rock, I was pretty confident I had heard just about every kooky Jewish conspiracy theory in existence.

As far back as I can remember, I have heard how the Jews had taken over this and that, and were scheming to take over everything else – all in an effort to ultimately dominate the entire planet.

That would be a pretty tall order for a group of people that make up the smallest minority on Earth.

I guess it is just human nature on the part of many to blame this tiny minority for all the world’s ills, as it has been going on since the earliest beginnings of recorded history.

Now someone has come up with what has to be the Mother of all Jewish conspiracy theories:

Via weaselzippers.us (highlights are mine):

U.S.-Based Political Scientist Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The Neocon Movement, Established by Jews, Plans to Destroy the Islamic World by Brute Force and through “Harmless” Films like Superman, Tom and Jerry

Following are excerpts from an interview with Muhammad Waqi’ullah, a US-based Sudanese professor of political science, which aired on Al-Majd TV on June 4, 2012. Waqi’ullah received his Ph.D. from the University of Mississippi, and worked for the Institute of Islamic and Arabic Sciences in America in Fairfax, Virginia.

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The neocon movement was established at US universities, especially at the University of Chicago. It was established by a group of Jewish professors, who fled Nazism. They wanted to fortify Western civilization against the leftist, secular, Nazi, and Fascist invasion.

Ultimately, they wanted to protect the Israelites, or the Jews, from annihilation by Western civilization. They infiltrated Western ideology, and specifically, American ideology, until the circumstances, under Bush Jr., enabled them to gain control over the country’s centers of power and to implement their ideas.

This led to the invasions with which they destroyed Islam and the Islamic world.

[...]

The neocons developed a very dangerous theory concerning the Islamic world. They taught it in the most important university – the National Defense University, in Maryland [sic].

Interviewer: What is this theory?

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: The destruction of the entire Islamic world.

Interviewer: Destruction?!

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Yes, the destruction of the entire Islamic world by brute force. The US Department of Defense denounced this seminar, and issued a communiqué condemning it.

Interviewer: They based it on the theory of the clash [of civilizations].

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Yes. But the [neocons] are now defeated. The liberal movement is the dominant one today. The liberal, pseudo-leftist movement is now dominant, under the leadership of that American… Obama.

Interviewer: Can soft power be exploited to embellish the use of hard power? The neocons reject soft power, but surely some people use it to embellish hard power.

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: This is extremely widespread in the American media, as well as in school curricula, and in the prevalent popular culture. The theory of hard power is based upon the principle of the rule of the strong, and the weakening and annihilation of the weak. The weak has no right to live. Only the strongest and the fittest are allowed to survive.

This theory emanates from biology. Darwin observed that the weak is always annihilated. It cannot cope with the climatic or environmental conditions, and it becomes extinct. He said that the same goes for human beings. A weak human, a weak civilization, a weak country, or a weak culture must be vanquished, in order to make way for the white race, for the strong, for “superman.” This is the “End of History” theory, established by Francis Fukayama – as you surely know better than others. The white man will seal history and rule supreme, and all other civilizations must be vanquished at the end of history.

The Muslim fights for the sake of good, while the infidel fights for the sake of evil. It is a war of values, not of material interests or personal or national ambitions. It is a war of civilizations, a war of values. Islamic civilization defends the good.

Some films look the epitome of innocent, purity, and reliability. They look like nice harmless films, like the Superman movies or Tom and Jerry. People don’t sense the danger of these films, but these films instill Western philosophy, the theory of Thomas Hobbes [sic], which we discussed.

Interviewer: The survival of the fittest…

Muhammad Waqi’ullah: Exactly. The strong should survive, whereas the weak should be ridiculed, exterminated, and wiped out of existence.

Personally, I think the professor has been hitting his hashish-filled water pipe a little hard.

The scary thing is that we in America actually allow garbage like this to be taught in our institutions of “higher learning.”

America’s broke, but Obama gives $147 million to Palestinians

The Establishment Media are not reporting this, so we are.

Each year, the United States gives approximately $500 million to the Palestinians, millions of dollars of which have been used to train armed forces and buy munitions that are used against Israel, America’s supposed ally.

Last October, Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, (R-Fla) froze $192 million in US funding for Palestinian projects as Fatah head Mahmoud Abbas prepared to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state in the United Nations. But the Palestinians’ bid for statehood, brought to the UN in September, failed to gain enough support.

Congress later released to the Palestinian Authority $45 million, then another $88.6 million, with limitations on where the money could be used.

On April 25, 2012, however, Obama announced he would override Congress and release the rest of the funds without any limitations or restrictions on where the money could be used. He then justified his decision as one involving “national security interests of the United States.”

Obama’s announcement was followed by the US Agency for International Development saying that it will pour $147 million of American taxpayers’ money into Palestinian Authority infrastructure, education, health projects, and humanitarian aid.

Do you remember your high school civics class (do they still have that?) on the U.S. government — that in America’s system of separation of powers, it is the legislative branch, specifically the House of Representatives, that controls the purse strings? So much for that. [smirk]

Now it’s up to the Republican eunuchs to stop King Obama. I’m not holding my breath.
