Bibi Netanyahu’s great speech.

Bibi — now there’s a guy who can give a kick-arse speech! He’s is Israel’s Ronald Reagan. He’s the Jewish Gipper! [Benjamin Netanhayu] So now here is the question. You have to ask it. If the benefits of peace with the Palestinians are so clear, why has peace eluded us? Because all six Israeli Prime […]

Words that change history — comparing Obama’s to Netanyahu’s

“The borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps, so that secure and recognized borders are established for both states.” — Barack Obama, 5/19/11. The statement above by the president is a rather simple sentence that to the layman and amateur no doubt sounds innocuous enough, but […]

Gene Simmons on Obama & Israel.

In Libya, first do no harm, second look to Poland @ 1989.

Even now the United States military and other Western powers are deploying ships and other assets around the Med and near Libya. But posturing aside the National Review editors advocate a different kind of military strategy — do nothing. Here’s why: We understand and share the impulse to stanch the killing. But there are two […]

Not so “moderate” Muslim Brotherhood.

Great commentary from the Bret Stephens: It’s what the good people on West 40th Street like to call a “Times Classic.” On Feb. 16, 1979, the New York Times ran a lengthy op-ed by Richard Falk, a professor of international law at Princeton, under the headline “Trusting Khomeini.” “The depiction of [Khomeini] as fanatical, reactionary […]

Perpetual outrage.

Here’s Michelle Malkin: Every day is a Western flag-burning day somewhere in the Muslim world for every reason under the sun (see here here here here here and here, for starters). Koran-burning isn’t the real “provocation.” Or Mohammed cartoons. As I’ve said many times over the years, the mere existence of infidels is what provokes […]

That “moderate” WTC Mosque Imam

Well, at least a few journalists are doing their jobs and finding previously published words of the proposed-WTC mosque backer, Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf. Here’s the WSJ: In a letter published on November 27, 1977, Mr. Rauf commented on Egyptian President Anwar Sadat’s historic trip to Israel and encouraged his fellow Muslims to “give peace […]

Lamestream media day — Re: Gaza

Be sure to check out Tom Gross’ Mideast Dispatch Analysis and his coverage of a new mall opening in Gaza. Let’s just say it’s a far cry from the typical Lamestream media reports about the impoverished in Gaza. Here’s an excerpt worth highlighting: “On a day when (because EU Foreign Policy Chief Baroness Ashton is […]

Cohen & Goldberg on Cohen

First, some great recollection of history by the Washington Post’s Richard Cohen, for the world’s Helen Thomases. The recently retired friend of moral equivalence and relativism, Helen Thomas, left in shame last week after a candid moment in which she explained on video how she’d promote Middle East Peace: “Tell them [Jews in Israel] to […]

Moral inversion: Aggressors are victims, victims aggressors.

“Draw a cartoon or write a novel offending Islam, and you must go into hiding; defame Jews and earn accolades.” — Victor Davis Hanson. “The consequence of this moral and cultural relativism is that people are increasingly unable to make moral distinctions based on behavior. Such moral equivalence rapidly mutates into moral inversion, in which […]
