Arab World: Failing to
see the broader picture

Jerusalem Post [Israel], by Zvi Mazel

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 8/16/2014 1:19:14 AM

Arab countries are foundering, as a jihadi Islamic caliphate is strengthening its hold in the heart of the Middle East. The West seems intent on venting its frustrations on Israel, which is defending itself against Hamas, another radical Islamist group; Egypt is also feeling the brunt of it. Yet only a few years ago, Cairo was leading the charge of pragmatic Arab states backed by the US, fighting extremist Shi’ites under Iranian leadership. [Snip] The fact is that today the US has no ally in the Middle East, having deserted or offended every Arab country in the region. Yet had

This is a very sobering and disturbing article. It boggles the mind how the US and the EU, supposedly free democracies, can turn their backs on the only democracy in the region (Israel) and openly back the terrorists. No wonder we no longer have any allies in the ME, simply because we are no longer trusted. It appears that Egypt is the last man standing against the jihadists. They had to turn to Russia for support, because Barry & Co. were throwing a hissy fit over their beloved Muslim Brotherhood being tossed out on their rears.

So, what does a people do when their supposedly elected representatives no longer represent them? What do we do when our supposedly elected leader of the free world openly backs a terrorist campaign against that very same free world? Its unfortunate we´ve allowed this cancer in our country to fester, and now appears to be terminal.

Sobering, indeed. This inept, clueless administration has enthusiastically enabled freedom and liberty´s mortal enemies. Obama and co. have thrown the world into chaos and darkness.
Remember this however, God is watching, and He is at war with the evil that is at work. In the end, He wins big time!

New blitz on Syria: Second night of
airstrikes as jihadis claim first wave of
bombings killed world’s most wanted man
who is mastermind of ´toothpaste bomb plot´
Daily Mail [UK], by John Hall    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/24/2014 9:19:39 AM     Post Reply
A fresh wave of airstrikes hit ISIS-held territory close to Syria´s border with Turkey overnight, an organisation tracking violence in the country has claimed. Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said the warplanes carried out raids near the city of Kobani--also known as Ayn al-Arab--in Syria´s western Aleppo province, with the aircraft coming from the direction of Turkey. Mr Abdulrahman added that the planes were not Syrian. [Snip] The alleged attacks in western Syria took place as an American official speaking on condition of anonymity said the U.S. Air Force had also carried out two strikes on ISIS

Syria air strikes: Khorasan Group ‘were working

An al-Qaeda linked terrorist group targeted by the US in a second round of air strikes had been working with bomb makers from Yemen to produce explosives that could pass airport security undetected, including toothpaste tube bombs, an intelligence official has claimed. The Pentagon said the Khorasan Group were plotting an “imminent attack against America and Western interests” when training camps, an explosives and munitions factory, a communication building and command and control facilities associated with the cell were attacked in eight strikes in the west of Aleppo.

Barack Obama has justifiably been tagged the reluctant warrior during his six years in office, but last night he used that fact to catch the world--and one suspects the Isil high command--surprise. For the last few weeks, all the signals in Washington appeared to point to Mr Obama playing the long game when it came to tackling Isil in Syria. [Snip] And then without warning, and on the eve of the United Nations General Assembly, Mr Obama pulled the trigger, apparently after seeking the quiet assent of both Syria and Russia so long as the strikes were confined to Isil

David Cameron has no business revealing

As she always does, the Queen conducted herself with complete dignity throughout the Scottish referendum. It was reasonable to speculate that she was sympathetic to the union side, but she never gave away what she was thinking. What a contrast between the Queen´s dignity and David Cameron´s verbal incontinence in conversation with Michael Bloomberg in New York last night. Let´s remember that the prime minister´s formal role under the British constitution is chief adviser to the monarch.

School bars Muslim pupil,

A Muslim student at a girls’ school known for its liberal approach cannot start her A-levels because she wants to wear a face veil in the coeducational sixth form. The 16-year-old is understood to have been barred from Camden School for Girls in north London by the headmistress, Elizabeth Kitcatt, if she insists on wearing the niqab, which shows only the eyes, as it goes against school rules. More than 300 people have signed an online petition headed “Stop the Islamophobia” in support of the unnamed girl. Her sister, Sagal Ahmed,18, said: “I don’t feel like her education should be

Opinion: United States attack in
Syria parallels Israel’s in Gaza

Posted By: Attercliffe- 9/24/2014 3:26:57 AM     Post Reply
The air attack by American and Arab forces against ISIS and other terrorist targets parallels Israel’s air attacks against Hamas terrorist targets in Gaza. According to retired General Wesley Clark, the United States air attacks are designed to degrade and destroy the infrastructure of the terrorist groups, including the electric grid, the sources of their finance and other mixed military-civilian targets. [Snip] Among the most hypocritical nations participating in the US attack is, of course, Qatar, which not only condemned Israel for defending its civilians against Hamas rockets and tunnels, but actually funded the Hamas attacks and provided asylum for

Police Ambushed by Muslim
Rioters on Temple Mount

Dozens of Arab rioters began shooting fireworks at police on the Temple Mount on Wednesday morning, just hours before the Jewish New Year (Rosh Hashana) began, and as soon as the holiest site in Judaism was opened to Jewish visitors. The rioters fired at police at the Mughrabi Gate, which is the only point of access for Jewish visitors to the site currently under the de facto rule of the Jordanian Waqf (Islamic trust). Yassam police special forces and Border Patrol officers pushed their way onto the Temple Mount and pressed back the rioters. Upon arriving on the holy site, police forces came

Obama makes light of New York
traffic chaos he causes by saying

President Barack Obama joked today during a New York speech that he doesn´t seem to have the traffic problems the city´s residents are always complaining about. ´It´s actually pretty smooth for me during the week,´ Obama said, after playfully arguing that everyone in New York ´hypes´ the traffic. ´I don´t know what the problem is,´ he told attendees of the Clinton Global Initiative´s annual meeting. ´I haven´t noticed.´ [Snip] The president was seemingly unaware of how intensely New York drivers despise his visits and the traffic jams they cause around the city.

Former UK Defence Secretary Dr Liam Fox MP has delivered a speech on the ´weakness of the West´ at the Heritage Foundation today, during which he addressed global economics, the threat posed by Vladimir Putin´s Russia, and of course, ISIS. Dr Fox is often regarded as being on the right of Britain´s Conservative Party, and has previously been tipped to lead the organisation after David Cameron finishes his stint as prime minister.

The Israel Border Police´s vaunted YAMAM counter-terrorist unit on Tuesday stormed a building in Hebron that was housing the wanted Palestinians suspected of kidnapping and murdering three yeshiva students in June. In the raid, the team of crack commandos exchanged gunfire with the wanted Palestinians, killing them. Israel had vowed to track down Marwan Kawasme and Amer Abu Aysha, the two Hamas operatives who in June abducted Gil-Ad Shaer,16, Eyal Yifrah, 19, and Naftali Fraenkel, 16, three yeshiva students who were hitchhiking near Hebron.

The leader of Hezbollah said on Tuesday he opposed US-led air strikes on Syria, where his Lebanese Shi´ite Muslim group has been fighting alongside forces loyal to President Bashar Assad. Hassan Nasrallah, whose group is one of the most important helping Assad fight a Sunni-dominated insurgency, was speaking after strikes against Islamic State (IS) and other groups in Lebanon´s neighbor Syria. "We are against American military intervention and an international coalition in Syria, whether that (action) is against the regime or IS," Nasrallah said in a speech aired on Hezbollah-run al-Manar television.

The U.S. and five Arab countries launched dozens of air strikes against ISIS overnight in order to show the terror group that its attacks will not go unanswered, America´s top military officer said today. Army General Martin Dempsey said the raids in northern Syriawhich employed Tomahawk missiles, B1 bombers, F16, F18 and F22 strike fighters and drones--will have successfully proved to the radical Islamists that even strongholds such as the city of Raqqa do not represent a ´safe haven´.

President Barack Obama returned a formal military salute with a one-handed coffee-cup salute Tuesday, only a few hours after he dispatched the nation’s military on their attack mission into northern Syria. White House aides posted the sloppy salute video on Instagram. The commander in chief offered the coffee-cup salute when he disembarked from his U.S. Marine Corps helicopter in New York, as he made his way to the United Nations General Assembly. “President Obama just landed in New York for #UNGA2014,” says the caption. The salute is “the most important of all military courtesies,” says a manual for Marine Corps officer candidates. “In some situations,

President Obama is supporting the Secret Service in the wake of a deeply troubling incident in which a disturbed man jumped the White House fence, sprinted across the North Lawn, and actually entered the White House Friday evening. The man, 42 year-old Omar Gonzalez, had a folding knife in his pocket and had left 800 rounds of ammunition in his car not far from the White House. Gonzalez had also drawn the attention of authorities at least twice a few weeks ago — once in Virginia, when he was found with a sniper rifle, a sawed-off shotgun, and a map with

President Barack Obama saluted a pair of United States Marines on Tuesday while holding what appeared to be a styrofoam cup in his saluting hand, a breach of military regulations that won´t win him fans among veterans and servicemen. Obama is known for drinking tea, not coffee, when he travels, especially before delivering speeches. His quasi-saluting gesture was an instant embarrassment for the White House, and not because his environmentally taboo drinkware clashed with the green-policy speech he was on his way to deliver at a UN Climate Summit.

Last week, esteemed doctor and one of our ObamaCare Architect Overlords penned a column for the Atlantic that should win a Pulitzer Prize for passive-aggressive shaming. Although Emanuel claims that *he* doesn´t want to live past the age of 75, the article itself could have been a listicle titled, "Top 15 Reasons No One Over 75 Should Receive Healthcare." Emanuel even includes a monstrous but brightly colored graph that is meant to tell anyone over 75 that their "last contribution" to society likely occurred more than a decade ago. Good God.

On Tuesday, shortly after announcing to the American public that the United States was now bombing ISIS in Syria, the President of the United States flew to New York to address the United Nations – on climate change. His speech mixed high-flown sentiment with apologies for America, and pledged American sacrifice in the name of a lofty goal without evidence that such sacrifice would in any way contribute to attaining that goal. In other words, it was a typical Barack Obama whirligig. Even as American warplanes struck targets in Syria, even as regimes tottered in Jordan and Iraq and Yemen,

Rush Limbaugh apparently tips generously, which sometimes makes people who dislike him feel quite awkward. In one case, a waitress-turned-award-winning-author revealed that she felt so awkward, that she donated both of his $1,000 tips to an abortion charity. Merritt Tierce, whose debut novel Love Me Back chronicles her time at a high-end Dallas steakhouse, revealed in an interview with Dallas News that, at the time, she was also the executive director of the Texas Equal Abortion (TEA) Fund, which provides financial assistance to low-income women seeking abortions.

Lois Lerner says she is no Jeffrey Dahmer. The former Internal Revenue Service official referenced the infamous cannibalistic serial killer as she broke her silence for the first time about last year’s IRS scandal. Lerner told the website Politico that she has been the recipient of threats and hate mail, describing how one person called her “the worst person ever in the United States.” “I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” Lerner quipped. Lerner, who led the tax-exempt division of the IRS, was forced out of the agency after she found herself at the center of the scandal over the agency’s targeting of conservative groups

One of them—the last—was less good, given he had gone MIA for the better part of three weeks and I had a sneaking suspicion he had a girlfriend. We hadn’t slept together, but the kisses had been the type of kisses you walk away from with shaky knees and blind hope. There was something there, and we both knew it, which is why we are attempting to hash things out over the phone at some ungodly hour.

If there is one thing Chelsea Clinton is most worried about, it may be that her soon-to-be child will grow up in a world without elephants. Standing alongside her mother, Hillary Clinton, at the Clinton Global Initiative this afternoon, the very-pregnant former first daughter warned the plight of African elephants, killed for their ivory tusks, is an “existential” one, and said that if the current poaching rates continue, elephants could be few and far between within the next decade. If so, this means Chelsea Clinton’s favorite animal could be something her child would never know. “The child Marc and I

During the Bush administration, national Democrat leaders threatened to kill the ABC network´s broadcast license if a miniseries unfavorable to the Clinton administration wasn´t censored to satisfy Democrats. ABC complied. Earlier this year, Democrats started a push for a Constitutional Amendment to gut (literally) the First Amendment. Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get -- in their own words -- "Rush Limbaugh off the air." The petition to get Limbaugh off the air comes straight from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) in the form of a fundraising/petition email. The idea is to use the muscle of the

The United States and allies launched airstrikes against Sunni militants in Syria early Tuesday, unleashing a torrent of cruise missiles and precision-guided bombs from the air and sea on the militants’ de facto capital of Raqqa and along the porous Iraq border. American fighter jets and armed Predator and Reaper drones, flying alongside warplanes from several Arab allies, struck a broad array of targets in territory controlled by the militants, known as the Islamic State. American defense officials said the targets included weapons supplies, depots, barracks and buildings the militants use for command and control. Tomahawk cruise missiles were fired
