Carl Goldberg's Speech at Restoration Weekend

Gary Fouse

I have been sent the below video of a speech by Carl Goldberg (Act for America, Arizona) at David Horowitz's Restoration Weekend event at West Palm Beach on November 16, 2013. In the below speech, Goldberg talks about political Islam, its threats and what we can do to counter it in the US. It is well worth a view.

Jeanine Pirro on Benghazi

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Frontpage Magazine

The below video from Jeanine Pirro's Fox News show is 9 minutes long, but worth the viewing. In fact, every American who plans to vote in 2016 should see this. In this video, in the wake of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Benghazi, Pirro takes Hillary Clinton apart over her handling of Benghazi, before, during and after the attack of September 11, 2012.

To you defenders of Clinton (and Obama), I say this: You may not like Pirro. You may not like her politics. You may not like her style. But I challenge you to find one word in the video that is not true.

Then tell me why you think Hillary Clinton deserves to be president.

Mohammad Rateb Alnabulsi: Why Is This Man in the US?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Investigative Project on Terrorism

SAC-LA's photo.

Mohammad Rateb Alnabulsi is a Syrian sheikh who is touring the US and being co-sponsored by the Syrian American Council. Given his past history of statements especially in regards to Jews and homosexuals, one wonders why we gave him a visa. Here is a report from the Investigative Project on Terrorism.


"All the Jewish people are combatants" acceptable as targets for attacks in Israel, al-Nabulsi wrote in his "ruling on martyrdom operations in Palestine."

"The second fatwa. The author of this fatwa says: the wicked Jews are a collection of defects and 
imperfections, and a hotbed of vices and evils. They are the worst enemies of God, against Islam and its  people, The Almighty says: Certainly you will find the most violent of people in enmity for those who believe (to be) the Jews and  those who are polytheists. [Quran 5:82] 

God has made it a duty to fight them and wage Jihad against them so that the word of God will be 
supreme, and the word of those who disbelieve be low. This will be when the enemies of God crouch in 
their homes, and do not break the Covenant and the Charter, do nor plunder the wealth of the Muslims, and usurp their homes. He says: "

"Homosexuality offers a filthy place and does not generate offsprings. Homosexuality leads to the destruction of the homosexual," Al-Nabulsi said. "That's why homosexuality carries the death penalty."

How ironic that at a time when our government is sending a US delegation to the Winter Olympics in Russia that includes gays in response to recent anti-gay remarks by Vladimir Putin, they allow a man like this to come to this country and spout his poison.

Here is his remaining schedule:

Saturday, Jan 18, 2014: ICA Franklin, MI 

Sunday, Jan 19, 2014: Orland Chateau Banquets, Orland Park, IL 

Saturday, Jan 25, 2014: DoubleTree by Hilton Dallas, TX 

Saturday, Feb 1, 2014: Los Angeles*

* The February 1 event is actually at the Hilton Hotel in Irvine (18800 MacArthur Blvd. from 6-9 pm.)

You will note that CAIR's Southern California director, Hussam Ayloush, who is mentioned in the IPT article, is also on the LA board of the Syrian-American Council, which promotes US assistance to the rebels fighting against the Assad government in Syria.

The Anti-Israel Movement in American Academia

Gary Fouse

I would like to add a postscript to the two articles I have put up in the past 24 hours about the appearance of Palestinian activist Omar Barghouti's appearance at the University of California at Riverside yesterday. This is the second time I have heard Barghouti speak. Today he is making two appearances at UCLA, both under the sponsorship of activist anti-Israel professors just as at Riverside.

I have written so many articles about the anti-Israel speakers who come to speak on university campuses, so I run the risk of repeating myself here. Omar Barghouti is a professional activist who travels the world giving lectures condemning Israel for being a "racist, apartheid state that is violating the human rights of Palestinians". As one of the other members of the audience so eloquently pointed out during the q and a yesterday, Barghouti is an expert in using emotionally-charged terms throughout his speech that are designed to inflame passions.

In addition, and arguably worse, Barghouti is sponsored from university to university by radical leftist faculty members who consider themselves to be fighters for justice and human rights, themselves two terms that have been hijacked by the left in academia. We heard it yesterday with English professor David Lloyd, the man who invited Barghouti to speak at UCR.

Justice. Human rights.

But when you hear Barghouti and his adoring sponsors in academia speak of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, here are some things they don't talk about as they drone on about justice and human rights.

They will not talk about the 600-700,000 Jews who were driven out of Arab lands in 1948 as a result of the first Israeli-Arab war. They will only talk about the Palestinians who became refugees-many of whom left of their own accord upon the urging of the Arab armies who promised them  quick return once "Palestine" was conquered.

They will not dwell on the countless acts of Palestinian terrorism against innocent Israeli civilians. In my lifetime, I can recall the hijackings of airplanes by Palestinians, many of which resulted in loss of innocent life-of various nationalities. I also vividly recall the murder of the entire Israeli Olympic team in the 1972 Olympics by Palestinian terrorists. I also recall the Achille Lauro ship incident in the 1980s when Palestinian terrorists commandeered an Italian ship and murdered an American Jew named Leon Klinghofer, who was thrown overboard in his wheelchair. That has been followed by suicide bombings including buses in Israel blown up by bombers. To be sure, Barghouti said yesterday that he condemns killing of civilians though he thinks that attacks against Israeli soldiers are a form of "legitimate resistance" against what he calls "occupation".

In that vein, if you go to one of these university events on Israel, don't expect for anyone to mention the infamous massacre of the Fogel family a couple of years ago, in which Palestinians crept into a Jewish family's home in the settlement of Itamar and murdered practically the entire family by slitting their throats including a months-old baby asleep in a crib. That was greeted by dancing in the streets by the noble Palestinians.

Where were the great American academic human rights activists and fighters for "justice" when that happened? Forget about Palestinian activists like Barghouti. Where were the American academics who profess to be defenders of justice and human rights? I will tell you. They ignored it and ignore it to this day.

Let's take this a step further. Look at what is happening in Egypt to the Christians. Look at what is happening in Syria to the Christians while Sunnis fight against the forces of Assad and the Alawites (Shia). Look at what is happening in Sudan. Look at what is happening to gays and Baha'i in Iran. Look at what is happening to Christians and animists in Sudan. Look at what is happening to Christians in Pakistan. Look at what is happening to European Jews in the streets of European cities at the hands of Muslim immigrants. In fact, look at what is happening to religious minorities in virtually every Muslim nation on the planet. Persecution.

Where are the fighters for justice and human rights in American academia?

I will tell you. They are busy bringing in speakers like Omar Barghouti to condemn Israel for what they term "apartheid" against the Palestinian people. Never mind that Arabs, Muslims, and Christians, as well as gays, enjoy more freedom and human rights in Israel than in any of the surrounding countries.

It matters not. In fact, the Palestinian lobby, aided by American academics like Judith Butler, call the latter, "pink-washing" using the tolerance of homosexuality in Israel as unfair propaganda against its neighbors because in those lands, gays are likely to be killed.

"It's just not fair", say these learned academics who are teaching our children in our universities.

And what happens when someone is invited by a Jewish group on campus or the College Republicans to speak in favor of Israel? They are jeered, disrupted, and have to be escorted by security for their own safety. I was present at UC Irvine in 2010 when the Israeli ambassador to the UN, Michael Oren, came to speak. He was repeatedly disrupted by the Muslim Student Union, and it was only after they marched chanting out of the hall, that Oren was able to finish his speech. Yet, this English professor, David Lloyd, implied yesterday at UC Riverside that the Israeli side pretty much controls the dialogue. Not on a university campus, Dr Lloyd. He also said that when Oren came to UCI, nobody asked him to debate the Palestinian side. Considering that Oren was loudly disrupted and his own freedom of speech was attacked, I consider that a preposterous statement. The fact is that speakers like Barghouti, Amir Abdel Malik Ali, Jewish Voice for Peace, and others are a dime-a-dozen on any university campus. It is the pro-Israel people who are subject to intimidation within academia. This intimidation and yes-anti-Semitism could not exist without the collusion of these bozo professors and the cowardice of our university administrators.

Which leads me to my final point. No matter how much the Barghoutis of the world will deny it, the central point of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is not about who owned what land back in 1948. It is about religion. The Arab states and the people who since the 1960s have called themselves "Palestinians", as if such a nation ever existed, will never except a Jewish state in the region. The Palestinian leadership both in the West Bank (Palestinian Authority) and Gaza are very clear that in a future Palestinian nation, there will be no Jews. The ultimate goal is the total elimination of the Jewish state of Israel and the elimination of Jews from the entire region.

If you are a college student attending these events, this is what they will never tell you because if they did, they know they would not gain the support of young American people. They are liars. They are propagandists. They could care less about human rights because they don't observe them in their own societies, and because if Israel is ever overrun, these same forces will slaughter every Jew they can get their hands on.

And shame on these bozo professors in our universities who use their positions in academia to indoctrinate our young people to support. Not only are they supporting the wrong side, they are enabling a resurgence in anti-Semitism.

Is Norways Anders Breivik an ideological neo-nazi and not anti-jihad as claimed?

(Picture - The 69 victims of the Utoya island slaughter)

There is an obscure post claiming that Breivik has admitted that in truth he is a neo-nazi who in reality despises Jews contrary to the "2830"manifesto, and that the manifesto was tailored specifically to damage the 'counter-jihad' movement.

I do not believe he wrote the manifesto and whoever did write the manifesto knew how to write it from an inside view in an attempt to cause the most damage.  Wolves in sheeps clothing.

Thank God Breivik was not shot dead that day in July 2011 because the truth may never (have) come to light.

It is a major development in the on-going case if this turns out to be true and there are other blogs out there stating this is now fact.

I'll reserve comment until confirmed to be true by the media.

How to Fight Back Against Campus Anti-Semitism

Gary Fouse

The latest FBI statistics (2012) once again show that when it comes to religious hate crimes, the biggest victim group is Jews. Contrary to the claims of the Muslim activist groups like the Council on American Relations (CAIR), offenses against Jews dwarf those against Muslims and have done so every year going back all the way to 2001, the year of  9-11 and beyond. Over history, there have been many reasons for Jew hatred. Today, the prime cause is the Israel-Palestinian conflict, which has created a world-wide pro-Palestinian movement that seeks to deligitimize the Jewish state. The result has been a worldwide resurgence in anti-Semitism.

The focal point in the United States is on our university campuses, led by anti-Israel professors and student groups like the Muslim Student Association (MSA) and Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP). As an adjunct teacher at the University of California at Irvine Extension, I have been witnessing this phenomenon since 2006. I have also come to the conclusion that the universities will not confront this hate on our campuses when it comes to Jews as they would vis-a-vis other groups, such as African-Americans, Hispanics or Muslims. The reason is simple: The prime movers behind this drive are Muslims, and universities do not want to arouse their ire.

In addition, with rare exceptions, the established national Jewish organizations like the Anti-Defamation League, Jewish Federation chapters and Hillel have failed to confront the universities and demand an end to a climate of intimidation on campuses. Nowhere is this more evident than within the University of California system. The previous president, Mark Yudof, himself Jewish, refused to take any concrete steps, calling it all free speech. In the past year, he sent a commission out to study the problem then refused to act on their recommendations when pro-Palestinian groups pushed back. He also refused to accept recommendations from the California Assembly, when they crafted Assembly Resolution 35 in response to complaints of anti-Semitism on California campuses.

So we are left with the dilemma of what to do. In my view, it comes down to taking a pro-active approach as opposed to merely reacting to the continuing outrages. Not that the latter is not worthwhile. It is important to attend the anti-Israel events, document what is said, and report it in order to educate the community as to what is happening on our campuses-especially as it impacts Jewish students, who, for a variety of reasons, may not want to speak out about the issue. However, there is more that can be done.

First of all, it is high time that those directly impacted by a hostile campus environment in which they are insulted, assaulted, or otherwise intimidated, not only speak out, but take legal action. It is up to Jewish organizations who supposedly care about anti-Semitism to assist them legally, provide legal counsel, and hold the universities to account in the pocketbook, as well as in damage to their national reputations. National organizations could make public statements encouraging Jewish students not to attend certain universities where this environment for Jews exists.

In the past several years, three complaints about anti-Semitism on campus were filed with the US Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights against the University of California system. They have all been dismissed. Further action with DOE is pointless, in my view.

Secondly, it is time to bring our own speakers to campus, not just to advocate for Israel, rather to educate the student body at large as to what is happening in regards to anti-Semitism on campus as a result of this anti-Israel campaign, which is well-organized and funded nationally and internationally. Most students on campus are not anti-Jewish-certainly not those at UC Irvine- but they need to be aware that Jew hatred is on the march. Sadly, they also need to be fully educated about the historical precedent for this kind of hatred and where it leads.

In recent years at UC San Diego and UC Irvine, we have seen the campuses turned upside down over complaints of anti-black speech or actions. That is well and good. Unfortunately, when Jews are insulted as a people by radical speakers or swastikas appear on walls, we don't see the same reaction. One reason is that certain Jewish organizations don't want to make waves with the university when the source of the Jew hatred is from Islamic quarters. This has to change.

The situation is getting worse, and Jews need to take a strong, pro-active stand-aided by people of other faiths who see the problem for what it is. If this trend is allowed to continue, we are going to see a tragedy on one of our university campuses one day. When that happens, a lot of responsible people who should have spoken out will have to hang their heads in shame.

A Lion Of Judah Has Passed!

Ariel "Arik" Sharon (1928-2014)

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the death of former Prime Minister Ariel "Arik" Sharon.

He was born on 26 February 1928 in Kfar Malal. At age 10, Sharon entered the Zionist youth movement Hassadeh.

As a young teenager, he first began to take part in the armed night-patrols of his moshav. In 1942 at the age of 14, Sharon joined the Gadna, a paramilitary youth battalion, and later the Haganah, the underground paramilitary force and the Jewish military precursor to the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Sharon's unit of the Haganah became engaged in serious and continuous combat from the autumn of 1947, with the onset of the Battle for Jerusalem. Without the manpower to hold the roads, his unit took to making offensive hit-and-run raids on Arab forces in the vicinity of Kfar Malal. In units of thirty men, they would hit constantly at Arab villages, bridges and bases, as well as ambush the traffic between Arab villages and bases.

From the Jewish Virtual Library:
In 1953, he founded and led the “101” special commando unit which carried out retaliatory operations against Palestinian fedayeen. Sharon was appointed commander of a Paratroop Corps in 1956 and fought in the Sinai Campaign. In 1957, he attended the Camberley Staff College in Great Britain.

Between 1958 and 1962, Sharon served as Infantry Brigade Commander and then Infantry School Commander, and then attended Law School at Tel Aviv University. He was appointed Head of the Northern Command Staff in 1964 and Head of the Army Training Department in 1966. He participated in the 1967 Six Day War as commander of an armored division. In 1969 he was appointed Head of the Southern Command Staff.

Sharon resigned from the army in June 1972, but was recalled to active military service in the 1973 Yom Kippur War to command an armored division. He led the crossing of the Suez Canal which helped secure an Israeli victory in the war and eventual peace with Egypt.

Ariel Sharon was elected to the Knesset in December 1973, but resigned a year later, serving as Security Adviser to Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (1975). He was elected to the Knesset in 1977 on the Shlomzion ticket. Following the elections, he joined the Herut party and was appointed Minister of Agriculture in Menachem Begin's first government (1977-81). One of his priorities was to pursue agricultural cooperation with Egypt.

In 1981, Ariel Sharon was appointed Defense Minister, serving in this post during the Lebanon War, which brought about the destruction of the PLO terrorist infrastructure in Lebanon. In the realm of international relations, he was instrumental in renewing diplomatic relations with the African nations which had broken off ties with Israel during the Yom Kippur War. In November 1981, he brought about the first strategic cooperation agreement with the U.S. and widened defense ties between Israel and many nations. He also helped bring thousands of Jews from Ethiopia through Sudan.

In 1983, Sharon resigned as Defense Minister after a government commission found him indirectly responsible for the September 1982 massacre of Palestinians at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps by Lebanese Phalangists.

Sharon remained in the government as a minister without portfolio and then served as Minister of Industry and Trade from 1984-90. In this capacity, he concluded the Free Trade Agreement with the U.S. in 1985.

In 1998, Ariel Sharon was appointed Foreign Minister and headed the permanent status negotiations with the Palestinian Authority.

While serving as Foreign Minister, Sharon met with U.S., European, Palestinian and Arab leaders to advance the peace process. He worked mostly to create and advance projects such as the Flagship Water Project funded by the international community to find a long-term solution to the region's water crisis and a basis to peaceful relations between Israel, Jordan, the Palestinians and other Middle Eastern countries.

Following the election of Ehud Barak as Prime Minister in May 1999, Ariel Sharon was called upon to become interim Likud party leader following the resignation of Benjamin Netanyahu. In September 1999, he was elected Chairman of the Likud. He also served as a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee in the Knesset.

On September 28, 2000, Sharon made a visit to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, the holiest place in Judaism to emphasize Israel's claim to sovereignty over the Temple Mount. Palestinians maintained that Sharon came with “thousands of Israeli soldiers” and defiled a Muslim holy place, when in fact, Israel's Internal Security Minister Shlomo Ben-Ami permitted Sharon to visit the Temple Mount only after calling Palestinian security chief Jabril Rajoub and receiving his assurance that if Sharon did not enter the mosques, no problems would arise. Sharon did not attempt to enter any mosques and his 34 minute visit was conducted during normal hours when the area is open to tourists. Palestinian youths — eventually numbering around 1,500 — shouted slogans in an attempt to inflame the situation. Some 1,500 Israeli police were present at the scene to forestall violence.

Following Sharon's Temple Mount visit, the Palestinians, under the direction of Yasser Arafat, launched an unprecendented wave of violence and terror against Israelis, dubbed the “al-Aksa Intifada” by the Palestinians for its association with the al-Aksa Mosque located on the Temple Mount. Palestinian leaders claim that Sharon's visit sparked the violence, but on November 7, 2000, an investigatory committee led by former U.S. Senator George Mitchell was established to determine the causes of the violence and to make recommendations for calming the situation. The Mitchell Report issued in April 30, 2001, concluded “the Sharon visit did not cuase the “al-Aksa intifada.”

In a special election held February 6, 2001, Ariel Sharon was elected Prime Minister. He presented his government to the Knesset on March 7, 2001. After calling early elections to the 16th Knesset, which were held on January 28, 2003, Ariel Sharon was charged by the president with the task of forming a government and presented his new government to the Knesset on February 27, 2003.

After several years of bloodshed, terror, and stalled peace talks with the Palestinians, Sharon devised a bold plan that would ensure a higher degree of security for Israelis, and improve the lives of Palestinians. While Palestinian terrorism against Israelis was at its peak, and going virtually unchecked by Arafat and other Palestinian leaders, Sharon decided that Israel should act unilaterally to improve its security situation and reduce bloodshed. This plan, known as the disengagement plan, called for the complete withdrawal of Israeli troops and settlers in the Gaza Strip, as well as the dismantlement of all settlements in the area, including four settlements in northen Samaria. Between August 16 and August 30, 2005, Israel safely evacuated more than 8,500 Israeli settlers and, on September 11, 2005, Israeli soldiers left Gaza, ending Israel's 38-year presence in the area.

The implementation of the disengagement plan was viewed as a success by most of the Israeli public, although it sparked bitter protests from ministers of Sharon's Likud Party, causing a party schism. Facing bitter infighting in Likud, Sharon formally resigned from the party to form a new centrist party, “Kadima,” or “Forward” on November 21, 2005.

Following the Likud Party spilt, Sharon outlined the goals of his new party. One, he said, is to closely follow the United States-backed road map plan for peace with the Palestinians. Sharon declared that there will be no more unilateral withdrawals from the West Bank, and insisted that Palestinian terrorist groups be disarmed and dismantled. The Kadima party platform calls for “maximum security and assuring that Israel be a Jewish national home and that another state that shall arise be demilitarized, with terrorists disarmed.”

In mid-December, 2005, Sharon spent two days in a hospital after suffering a minor stroke, which doctors said caused no irreparable brain damage. However, on January 4, 2006, Sharon was rushed to the hospital following another, more serious stroke. Sharon suffered a massive brain hemorrhage, which caused extensive cerebral bleeding.

Prime Minsterial duties were turned over to Ehud Olmert, who held a cabinet meeting on January 5, 2006, to signal the transfer of power. Olmert was subsequently elected Prime Minister until elections on March 28, 2006.
President George W. Bush said that Sharon was “a man of courage and peace,” and that “on behalf of all Americans, we send our best wishes and hopes to the prime minister and his family.”

“Arik was a brave soldier and a daring leader who loved his nation and his nation loved him. He was one of Israel’s great protectors and most important architects, who knew no fear and certainly never feared vision, He knew how to take difficult decisions and implement them. We all loved him and he will be greatly missed,” Simon Perez.

“The State of Israel bows its head over the passing of former prime minister Ariel Sharon.  His memory will forever be held in the heart of the nation. Sharon played a central role in the struggle for Israel’s security throughout its existence. He was, first and foremost, a courageous fighter and a distinguished general, one of the greatest commanders the IDF has ever known. When he left the military, he continued to act on behalf of the people of Israel, both in the capacity of the many roles he filled in Israel’s successive governments and as the country’s eleventh prime minister,” continued the prime minister. “He will forever be remembered.” Benjamin Netanyahu.

"One of the state of Israel’s greatest soldiers and warriors before and since it was founded. He was directly in the line of fire throughout his entire life” – first on the frontlines of battle, then on the political frontlines.

“Arik’s life story is fascinating, extraordinary and unique, imbued with courage, human kindness, vision, and leadership,”- Ehud Olmert

Ariel Sharon's family was by his side when he passed. He nursed remarked that he was fighting for life until the end.

Except for the disastrous pull out from Gaza, Ariel Sharon was an exceptional leader of the nation of Israel.  If he hadn't had the stroke that felled him, I do believe that Israel would have taken a different direction in policy.

Today a Lion of Judah has gone.  His like will not return for a long time!

Genocide is Returning-and We Are Silent

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Act for America and Debra

The below article is from Act for America. It is written by Guy Bechor and describes what is happening to the dwindling Christian communities in Muslim lands.

Genocide: The Vanishing Christian Communities of the Middle East

By Dr. Guy Bechor
(Translation from Hebrew: Avishai Zonnenberg, Arik Klein)

The numbers are truly staggering: In Iraq of 2003, until the fall of Sadam Hussein, there were 1.5 million Christians, but today there are only 250,000, that means that 1.25 million have migrated, killed or been forced to become Muslims. In Syria of just three years ago there were 1.75 million Christians, out of whom 450,000 have already left, and the rate of the ethnic cleansing is only growing.

This means that by the end of this decade there will be no more Christian Arabs in the Levant meaning the northern east of the Middle East. In the space that is becoming “Salafi” and violent, there is no place for the Christian Arabs, and they are being forcedly exiled.

This phenomenon is happening in full force at the Palestinian Authority, and if in Bethlehem there where once 90% Christians, today it is already 65% Muslims. The tradition is that the mayor is Christian despite the Muslim majority, but the female mayor is facing harsh persecution, including by the “Fatah” movement.

The day in which there will be no more Christian Arabs in the Palestinian authority is getting close, and according to estimates there are only a few tens of thousands left. In the day to day of the Hamas, Salafis and the Jihad, they have no existence, and they migrate, many to South America, where they already have large communities.

In Hamas's Gaza, out of 2,500 Christians there are only few hundreds left, the rest have escaped or have been forced to become Muslims. If one day there will be an independent “Palestinian” territory, the Christians will be the first to pay the price, especially after the Salafis will start to take over the control there, and it is only a matter of time, as it is in the entire Middle East.

The Christian were promoted at the National Arab Movement, they were the leaders of the Pan-Arab movement; with the Hamas they were tolerated, but the Salafis are brutally exterminating them. In the Shari'a ruled state, the Christians have no place.

In Egypt nearly nine million are Coptic Christians (one tenth), and the estimate is that a quarter of a million have already migrated since the fall of Mubarak, and the rest are suffering persecutions, murders, violence, robbery and looting. They are in grave condition, and the reality is that there are no consequences for hurting them.

In Lebanon there are still about one million Christians (according to a survey published this year), but they are in deep despair, some of them are under the protection of the Shiite Hezbollah state. Do they really have any hope?

Oddly, in a year when the Pope is elected “Man of the Year,” there is no cry about the amazing ethnic cleansing being done to his flock, as well as nothing from the west. United State has murmured something, and that was it.

As for Israel this silence has few conclusions: while the new anti-Semites are busy condemning Israel, proposing resolutions and banning Israel, they are saying nothing about the real massacre and the forced exile taking place here, there is no limit for the hypocrisy. Where are the human rights movements, in the face of this Christians free Middle East being created here?

The second conclusion is for us in Israel: this silence is a warning that if G-d forbids Israel will one day be weakened, the extremists will do us much worse, and no one in the world would really help. In the violent and Salafi Middle East, there is no place for Christians, which did not know how to prepare on time, or the Jews.

Luckily for the latter in the Jewish state they are strong and deterring, now it is clear how important it is to have a Jewish state, as the only place in the Middle East left, that is not Muslim.

Now a word for the Christian communities around the world: if one day the sovereignty over the holy places in Jerusalem will be held solely by the Palestinian Authority, in a short time the religious war that is taking place in the entire Arab world will erupt here as well, and neither Jews nor Christians will be allowed access anymore to their holly sites, as it is happening in Syria, in the places sacred for the Christians.

Only under Jewish sovereignty the freedom of religion will be kept, and the proof is – only in one place in the entire Middle East do the Christian Arabs get freedom of religion as well as equality, and that is in Israel, and so for the first time, we see young Christian Arab citizens, wanting to join in alliance with the Jewish State. They already know that no one will be waiting for them out there, in the cold Christian winter.

Fousesquawk comment: As we speak President Obama's Middle East policy is in shambles. Yet we have a secretary of State, John Kerry, running around the Middle East trying desperately to accomplish three things:

1 Get Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program. (His recent "agreement" indicates he is not succeeding.)

2 Get the Israelis and Palestinians to sign a peace treaty. (Not likely)

3. Get the various factions in Syria to stop fighting. (No end in sight).

Yet, one thing Kerry is not doing is trying to ameliorate the desperate situation for Arab Christians. I should concede that perhaps, behind the scenes, he is raising the issue with Arab leaders. If that is the case, it is not good enough. 

For this is not an issue to discuss behind closed doors. Obama, Kerry, and our UN ambassador should be screaming to high heavens about this issue, as should the UN,  EU, the Pope, and everybody else. Instead, we have silence. Not only that, we have Christian leadership, such as the Presbyterian Church USA aligning itself with the Palestinians against Israel. This is beyond shameful.

I have said over and over that for Jews in Europe, it is the 1930s all over again. What shall we say about Christians in virtually iany Islamic land on the planet? If you want to make a corollary, let us take Nazi Germany once again. In  November 1938, the Nazi leaders unleashed their goons (the SA) upon the Jews of Germany in what we called Kristallnacht. From then on, it was open season on the Jews. How many years before the Nazis began murdering Jews? Less than 7 years after Kristallnacht, it was all over. Six million Jews dead.

In Egypt, over 80 churches have been burned since Mohammed Morsi was overthrown. It has been done in retaliation by the followers of the Muslim Brotherhood, the very people our administration wants returned to power. In Syria, the rebels whom we support, are attacking Christians when they are not fighting Assad's troops. It is happening in Libya, Sudan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Nigeria, and on and on.

We are facing the prospect of a genocide of Christians in the Middle East and other Muslim countries, and we say nothing because we don't want to offend the Muslim world and be called, "Islamophobic"? Meanwhile, here at home, we allow ourselves to be intimidated by the likes of CAIR as they cry about "Islamophobia". They should be thankful that they live in a civilized country where we don't persecute religious minorities as their brethren do back in the old countries. CAIR and all the other so-called mainstream organizations should start speaking out as Americans against the horrors that are happening in the Middle  East, Pakistan, Iran etc.

But I digress. It has to start with our political and religious leaders, and it must be done publicly, loud and clear.

Who Will Speak for Asia Bibi in Pakistan?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Jihad Watch

I am cross-posting a current article by Robert Spencer in Jihad Watch. It is a two-faceted article that begins with the dilemma of a young Pakistani Christian girl in prison and facing execution on charges of blasphemy. She has written a letter to Pope Francis in the Vatican.

At the same time, Spencer is embroiled in a dispute with Worcester, Massachusetts Bishop Robert McManus, who has canceled a Spencer speaking appearance. By his own admission, he feels that speaking out on Islamic persecution of Christians would hurt the inter-faith dialogue and the "special relationship Christianity has with Islam".


Here is the article with a  link to statements by Bishop McManus.


"Talk about extreme, militant Islamists and the atrocities that they have perpetrated globally might undercut the positive achievements that we Catholics have attained in our inter-religious dialogue with devout Muslims." 

"The Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (Lumen Gentium), specifically on paragraph 16 of Chapter 2 which speaks about the special relationship that Christianity has to Islam."

Spencer has adequately described the present-day relationship that Christians have with Muslims in Islamic nations. I need not add anything here. My point is that we as Christians are being ill-served by clerics such as McManus, who want to ignore the atrocities that are being carried out around the world including atrocities against Christians, not to mention Jews, Baha'i, Hindus, and even internecine killing between Islamic sects. We mustn't say anything because it might endanger our relationships with Muslims.

What relationships? McManus (and his Jewish clerical counterparts) allow themselves to be charmed by sweet-talking Islamic leaders in America who are speaking from a position of being about 1% of our population. Were Muslims a majority in this country, all these inter-faith activities would not exist. 

One Jewish figure who knows better is Charles Jacobs of the Boston-based Americans for Peace and Tolerance (mentioned in the article by Spencer). He has been trying for years to educate the Jewish community about the radical and extremist connections of the Islamic Cultural Center of Boston in Roxbury, only to be excoriated by the Jewish leadership that is so invested in inter-faith activities with that mosque.

People like McManus should be using their positions to publicly call out the American Muslim leadership on the horrors that are occurring in the Middle East and other Islamic nations against Christians and other religious minorities. Instead, McManus heeds the call of some figure in the local community who is linked to a convicted terrorist, Tarek Mehanna, to cancel a speaking appearance by Robert Spencer.

We need to go back in history. During the Third Reich, Jewish communities were led by so-called Judenrats (Jewish Councils), which tried to cooperate with the Nazi leaders in a vain effort to ameliorate the situation for Jews. We know where that led.

This should not be a call to treat innocent Muslims in the US like their co-religionists treat other religions in other lands. We don't need to do that, and we must not. Yet, we must speak out about the  persecution of Christians and other religious minorities. Why is it that our own religious and political leaders right up to President Obama are silent?

If the Barack Obamas and John Kerrys are silent, we can still insist that our religious leaders speak out instead of misleading their flocks. Too many of our religious leaders, both Christian and Jewish, are conducting themselves like modern-day Judenrats.

Lynne Stewart: Another Shameful Act by the Justice Department

Gary Fouse

Radical New York attorney Lynne Stewart did much more more than represent the Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel Rahman; she became his accomplice. The below puff piece by CNN does not do justice to her shameful actions. Stewart went way over the line of legal defense when she put herself at the service of a man who was behind the 1993 World Trade Center bombing in 1993 that killed 6 people. Now, once again, Eric Holder and his gang at DOJ have sprung someone from prison who should have served her full sentence.


For a more sober assessment of what Stewart has done, watch last night's interview of Debra Burlingame, widow of the murdered pilot of the plane flown into the Pentagon on 9-11. She was interviewed by Fox's Megyn Kelly.


Dying or not, this woman is undeserving of compassion. This is a woman who knowingly facilitated communication between her "hero of the mujihadeen" and his terrorist accomplices in the Middle East. This is a woman who is unremorseful for what she has done.

Given this outrage, we can only thank God that the Egyptian military stepped in to remove Mohammed Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood from power in Egypt. Don't forget that Morsi was scheduled to visit the US this year, where he had vowed to lobby for the release of Abdel Rahman.  Is there much doubt now that his efforts would have been rewarded by this president and this attorney general?
