Friday Afternoon Roundup - The Times, The Times Are Getting Uglier

The UN Security Council has predictably enough called for a ceasefire, and somewhat less predictably the Bush Administration pulled back and let it happen. What a ceasefire is supposed to accomplish is anyone's guess, but for the moment it's not accomplishing anything, as Israel has shown enough guts to reject it.

The media is backing off some of the faked "atrocity" footage, with CNN pulling a video and France2 apologizing for phony footage. Of course none of that compares to a retraction from Uruknet.

But naturally enough Obama is doing the safe thing by staying silent, which is confusing the hell out of his supporters. Madoff even ran a piece defending Israel, while fitting in some good Bush bashing for her crowd. Of course that sort of thing will end the moment Barry Hussein is in the White House and we discover that Hamas was just misunderstood, once the appropriate backdoor agreements have been reached. For context, remember how quickly all the official Jewish organizations which had been against the PLO backpedaled and began offering invites to Arafat. It took a real act of courage at the Holocaust Museum to defy Clinton and his henchmen by denying Arafat a photo op there.

Maggie's Notebook has some of the latest updates on the attacks on Israel and a few words on the violence from Findalis.

Try to check what happens to the money sent to the Palestinians and you will see most is siphoned off to Swiss bank accounts and the rest is used to fund terrorism. Hamas and the PA don't recognize the 2-state solution. They want only one state, free of all Jews, Druse, Baha'i and Christians. They will rape, murder and rob to get what they want.

I ask my readers to take the time and say a prayer for the people of Sderot and the Western Negev who are and have been under rocket fire for the past 8 years.

Infidel Bloggers Alliance has the ZOA report on Obama refusing briefings on the situation in Gaza.

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has expressed concern over reports that President-elect Barack Obama and his senior aides have refused all briefings on the current situation inGaza from the Israeli government and its officials. In this way, he has been depriving himself of information that will be central to his deliberations on the Middle East, a subject on which he has promised to "hit the ground running" when he assumes office as President on January 20.

As if anyone besides the few deluded pro-Israel Jews who voted for Obama, or the "Ahasverosh Feast" Jews who switched from opposing him to supporting him after the election, seriously believe that Obama is going to be listening to Israeli briefings, or that he doesn't already have a plan in place that's been designed by the sort of people who think Israel shouldn't exist.

Meanwhile we have Pat Buchanan comparing Israel to the Nazis, which considering his well known admiration for Hitler may actually be some sort of attempt at a compliment. Naturally Buchanan was a big fan of the Russian invasion of Georgia, which was of course "completely legitimate", even though it featured a military dictatorship hostile to the United States and which had formerly enslaved everything up to Germany invading a sovereign country. But Israel hitting a terrorist group, now in Pat's World that's seriously wrong.

Of course Pat wasn't the first or most prominent team member up to bat with that particular smear, an honor belonging to a Cardinal from a Vatican led by a former Hitler Youth member. Hypocrisy doesn't come in more glaring tones than this. But I guess Pat Buchanan has to stay away from Gulag metaphors to avoid offending President Vlad the KGB Impaler, who has a way of dealing with pundits who say things he doesn't like.

Naturally there are reports of negotiations being prepped between Obama and Hamas, which aren't exactly surprising. Which is one more reason that even Olmert and Co might have gotten serious about finishing Hamas, before Obama formally recognizes them and removes them from the terrorist list, while kicking in a large sack of foreign aid.

Meanwhile Jimmy Carter, always the front line for terrorist propaganda, has redefined Hamas' weapons smuggling tunnels, as "Defensive Tunnels". I bet he'd recognize them as offensive if Hamas was smuggling rabbits through them instead of Katyushas.

Anti-Israel rallies around the world are getting spectacularly uglier, especially since many of them are made up of members of the Religion of Peace (TM) who just between you and me, aren't so peaceful at all.

Atlas Shrugs has photos and videos of an Oslo rally getting ugly

I just attended a pro-Israel rally in downtown Oslo (the capital of Norway). The terrorists and radical socialists were surrounding the fenced-in area where the peaceful assembly took place, chanting their vicious slogans and throwing eggs. The situation escalated as they began throwing bottles and rocks, then ultimately firebombs, injuring numerous senior citizens. They're still creating havoc in downtown Oslo, which is practically blanketed in teargas. They're all marching on the Israeli embassy now. You can watch some of it unfold here:

Of course why be surprised. It's been clear for some time that the 1930's are back. This isn't a political disagreement, it's the planned anhiliation of Israel, followed closely by Europe and America. And it isn't just Muslims doing the heavy lifting. You can see some of that same hate all over the internet. Civilization has spawned the destroyers that are doing their best to bring it down.

NeoCon Express has a good roundup of cartoons touching on the perverse absurdity of the entire situation.

Islamic Danger for Americans sees a change in the weather

Lemon Lime Moon writes on the Dangerous Fictions in our culture today

Thoughts and moods enter into people's heads individually, but also collectively and you will see them realized outloud so to speak in a spate of books, movies, documentaries,and other ways.

The recent vampire craze is one such idea that has entered the communal psyche. In this wave of idea and thought, vampires are just different, not evil, they are misunderstood, capable of love and deep feeling. They are just another kind of "person" and of course in this world we are to accept all persons without question.Though they are mythical creatures, the message blurs the line of good and evil.

Logistics Monster has more on Obama's birth certificate or lack thereof saga

The Keli Ata blog calls on the media to hide their shame

The ARPEH blog has a roundup of responses from Major British political parties and MP's on what's going on in Israel, and writes on what Israel's goal in Gaza should be.

The only way to successfully meet the war objectives is to capture and hold territory in Gaza where immediate response to rocket launches can be dealt out. This is a daunting task given the current rocket ranges and past Lebanon experience.

Personally though I think trying to carve out a security zone is another dead end, just as it was in Lebanon. Any occupation army won't work, neither will security zones. The only options are to retake Gaza in full or retreat and accept rocket attacks as a daily reality.

There are no other true alternatives.

Remember this comment from Biden:

"Mark my words," the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don't remember anything else I said. Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."

And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."

Biden was right and Obama's response is silence...and he won't take briefings from Israel....Curious...The Big O will be worse than Carter and is quite obvious a very weak link.

Explain how the Pope is responsible for his Hitler Youth membership. By no means am I arguing that all Hitler Youth were innocent but there were some forced in against their will.

German children were more or less *conscripted* into that evil organization. I mean, no one is unreasonable enough to condemn Jews and Poles for slave labor that contributed to the Nazi war effort. Because the slave laborers were conscripted. As were German children, rendered further helpless by the fact they were children.

Hello from Sweden
Nice blog, keep up the good work!

Islam delenda est said...

The Evil has been ratcheting up for thirty years:

Lest we forget - William Francis Buckley

In the present multi-culti environment, the ritual torture to death of captive warriors of other tribes, in honor of the victorious tribal god, is a feature of uncivilised savages which it is politically correct not to mention, especially as Native Americans such as the Iroquois delighted in these abominations.

Mercifully for the captives, death would normally occur within two or three days of continual torture, due to heart failure, dehydration, blood loss or infection.

But consider the fate of a warrior captured by a savage tribe with the same Satanic ritual urge to torture in the name of their ‘god’, but with modern medical support to prolong the life of the victim almost indefinitely.

Such was the fate of William Francis Buckley, a US army officer who was ritually tortured by Muslims in the name of Allah continuously and unremittingly for 444 days before death finally claimed him.

William Buckley must have endured more suffering than any other human being in history, for despite agonising 24/7 torture for more than a year, the best doctors in Iran were on call to give life support to prevent his escape through death.

Buckley was captured in Beirut By Hisbollah on March 16, 1984. and was smuggled to Tehran via Damascus aboard an Iranian plane and taken to the cellars of the Iranian Foreign ministry, where he was tortured without respite or mercy until he died of a sudden heart attack despite best attempts at resuscitation. This abomination was carried out with the full support of the
demonocratic Iranian government and the vile Islamic pedophile-worshipping ‘clergy’.

Buckley’s remains were then sent back to Beirut and dumped in an unsuccessful attempt to hide Iranian involvement.

However during his torture numerous videos of the kaffir’s suffering and ‘humiliation’ (very important to the Muslim male) had been made and these eventually found their way into Mosques worldwide, where they were (and probably still are) used as propaganda to inspire youthful Jihadists.

Buckley’s appalling fate illustrates the Satanic nature of Islamic tribalism. He wasn’t tortured to extract information.

Like the prisoners of the Iroquois, he was tortured to appease a sadistic ‘god’ - Allah, aka Satan, the father of lies.

Islamic Religious justification:

"Buckley was the first American taken hostage in a string of terrorist acts by Lebanese disciples of the Ayatollah Khomeini. My partner Dale Van Atta's intelligence sources told him in late 1985 that Buckley had been tortured to death that spring after surviving a year of savage interrogation in Lebanon. He had been disguised as a wounded soldier of the Iranian revolutionary guard, Pasdaran, and flown to Damascus in a Syrian helicopter.

Intelligence reports indicated he had been loaded on an Iran Air 727 and flown to Tehran. The brutal torture continued in the basement of the Iranian foreign ministry; several times Buckley was hospitalized. The last time, he suffered three heart attacks and died.


• DR. AZIZ AL-ABUB (AKA: IBRAHIM AL-NADHIR): In the 1980s, Dr. al-Abub, the psychiatrist behind the torture and interrogation of hostages kidnapped by terrorists in Beirut, Lebanon, studied psychological "brainwashing" methods at the Patrice Lumumba campus in Moscow.......

• DR AL-ABUB'S ABDUCTION OF AGENT BUCKLEY: In 1984, William Buckley, an agent for the CIA in Beirut, Lebanon, was kidnapped outside his residence and was tortured and drugged for more than two years by Dr. al-Abub. Abub made videos of the hopeless state that Buckley and other hostages were in, all aimed at enraging administrations like that of the United States.23 After 444 days, William Buckley died not only from what Dr. al-Abub had done to him, but also from untreated pneumonia.24 Also

allegedly implicated in the abduction of agent Buckley was one of Osama Bin Laden's current chiefs, Imad Mughniyeh.25


Over the next 444 days, Buckley, the CIA’s Beirut station chief, was tortured by psychiatrist Aziz al-Abub, a member of the Iranian-based terrorist group, Hezbollah. They were 444 days in a living hell, whose devil had substance enough in the form of al-Abub, trained to inflict pain and suffering by drugs and other means. Each day, the psychiatrist would visit to inject or otherwise administer substances to the bound and helpless Buckley.

As the torment proceeded, a series of three videotapes of al-Abub’s victim were released, finding their way to the CIA. The systematic destruction of a once-proud and capable man was all too visible on the tapes. By the time the third video arrived at CIA headquarters, 224 days after the kidnaping, al-Abub had reduced Buckley to a gibbering, drooling mess, screaming in terror as his eyes rolled and his naked body shook.

The videos communicated far more than any words ever could, moving then CIA Director William Casey to say, “I just want that motherf – – - doctor. Dead or alive. I want him.”2

Today, Aziz al-Abub, also known as Ibrahim al-Nadhir, is reportedly alive and well, working in Iran in that country’s prison system.3

Hezbollah, of course, has been one of the Middle East’s most active terrorist organizations, drawing even more intense international scrutiny in the wake of the September 11 attacks.

The agony and ultimate death of Bill Buckley demonstrated that by 1984, terror masters were in command of psychiatric drugging and conditioning techniques capable of thoroughly altering a person’s behavior or destroying his sanity.


Ted said...

The nation owes more than thanks to three unlikely modern day patriots: professional poker player, musician, and retired attorney, Leo Donofrio; life long Democrat and former Pennsylvania assistant attorney general, Phil Berg; and Soviet emigree and attorney, Dr. Orly Taitz (she’s also a dentist).

While Mr. Donofrio painstakingly established the airtight case that BHO could not be an Article II “natural born citizen” (at BHO’s birth, dad was British/Kenyan, not American, citizen) Leo’s Stay of the 12/15/08 electoral college vote was denied by SCOTUS as procedurally unripe.

Nevertheless, since no congressman and senator objected on 1/8/09 to Congress’ count and certification of the electoral vote which would have turned resolution of Obama’s eligibility issue over to Congress — rendering moot the Berg and Taitz (Lightfoot) cases — Berg finally does achieve standing on the issue of actual harm, to be addressed at the Friday 1/9/09 SCOTUS Conference on Writ of Certiorari. Obama’s failure to submit evidence of his constitutional qualification for the 1/9/09 conference will mean he cannot thereafter challenge Berg’s request to enjoin the 1/8/09 Congressional electoral count and certification, albeit retroactive, scheduled for SCOTUS conference Friday 1/16/09. Moreover, Chief Justice Roberts has scheduled a full Court conference on the Lightfoot case Friday 1/23/09 in the event there needs to be a Constitutionally mandated action, the Inauguration itself, to enjoin retroactively.

Now that BHO is in checkmate and cannot be POTUS, he can be a patriot as well. He need not subject the nation to the expense and trauma of requiring SCOTUS to overrule his ‘Presidency’. BHO can and should voluntarily step down with Biden becoming Acting POTUS under the 20th Amendment, and under the agreement all potential claims by the Government for itself and on behalf of others against BHO are released.

Why are the majority of democrats not siding with Israel on this Gazan situation? I have no party preference and no label adequately defines my views. However I do side with Israel when it comes to dealing with any faction that opposes Israel's existence.


Anonymous said...

why do democrats not favor Israel? why do most of the anti-obama sites not show support for Israel?

Anonymous said...

please disregard my previous post asking why dems do not favor Israel. I have just read your well written and very informative article entitled why liberals support Islamic terrorism and oppose self-defense against it. thank you for answering a deep need.

Maggie M. Thornton said...

Just how much of the world would be stronger and safer if we didn't need ME oil? I believe that's the reason the U.S. pulls shenigans like voting "present" in the UN Sec. Council.

Thanks so much for the link, SK.

Sultan Knish said...

Anonymous, most Dems do not support Israel anymore, as the party has skewed further to the left. And the base of support for Obama is even further to the left than the average Dem.

The left associates Israel with Western capitalism, and views Muslim terrorists as subversive and revolutionary.

Sultan Knish said...

Hidden Author, the correct analogy would not be from Hitler Youth to Slave Laborers in conquered countries, but to the Soviet Komsomol or people in Muslim countries who refuse to go along with Islamofascism.

Refusing to join carried a certain amount of risk, but there were and are plenty of people who refuse to stand with evil.

Once you have that background however of being in such an organization, blasting the people who were being massacred for today defending themselves, is repulsive.

I realize saying so offends Catholics, but then being compared to Nazis by people who actually were members of Nazi organizations offends me... with I think far greater cause.

Sultan Knish said...

If we didn't need ME oil, it would certainly weaken some of the power centers of Islam, particularly Saudi Arabia, but Muslim countries and their allies would still have a great deal of UN power.

Lemon said...

If it was not ME oil it would be something else.
There is a jealousy and bitterness in the world that seeks an outlet come hell or highwater.

Keli Ata said...

Evil has been straining at the leash for some time but it seems that leash has broken.

Watching the videos and TV news reports of the anti-Israel rallies is like stepping into a time machine and getting out in 1939.

APRPEH said...

thanks for the reference. re-conquering Gaza is a fine idea provided you can convince the arabians there to agree. true, it is our land but you have to convince the Israeli government of that, (not me). my suggestion is merely one of short term military goals. And I have avoided making comparisons between gaza and Lebanon. Gaza is not Lebanon. The barbarians are trapped in a small territory and can be cut off from their patrons, tracked down and smashed as need be. I am not at all advocating a recognition of a border with gaza. It is mere statement of the current facts on the ground.

Mrs. Anna T said...

"The only options are to retake Gaza in full or retreat and accept rocket attacks as a daily reality."

Thank you for doing your best to puncture the big delusional bubble that is distorting reality for most of the world.

You said, "The media is backing off some of the faked "atrocity" footage, with CNN pulling a video and France2 apologizing for phony footage."

It doesn't surprise me. Some palestinians have been known to use children and other innocents as human shields and targets for their own exploitation and cause for outcry against Israel, for the so-called acts of atrocity. The media is so biased and misleading, especially with regard to Israel. CNN, and other news sources have been quick to broadcast the supposed acts of violence against palestinians and of course, distorted the number of casualties. Yet, the media gives little mention of the continuing terrorist acts committed against the people of northern Israel in which bomb shelters are frequent places of refuge.

Hi Sultan Knish,
I just discovered Your page.

Quote Your comment: "realize saying so offends Catholics, but then being compared to Nazis by people who actually were members of Nazi organizations offends me... with I think far greater cause."

I am not Catholic, but a German who lives in the US.

The whole Nazi comparison with Israel is just a mirror of the race card playing by Obama supporters.

I am married to a black American who is after this propaganda year 2008 calling me a racist because I question Obama. On all levels actually. Integrity, competence, character, honesty... You name it.

The discussion is not happening, even though he only voted for him because he is a Democrat, he initially was a Hillary supporter.
So obviously there were Black americans that did not vote by race alone. But there is no discussion possible.

Anyway, I am used to be called NAZI by indifferent people, just because I am German. Even though I was born 20 years after the end of WWII.

Now I am used to be called a racist, just because I am not supporting an unqualified president who has nothing else to offer than his brown skin.
That seems to be enough for the masses, I call them racists.

Anyway, where I wanted to go with this.
The tactics of calling dissenters racist or NAZI comes from the very same group.

The way to respond is to hold up a mirror.
These people are themselves fascists and racists.

The method of them is divide and conquer.

Don't fall for this.

You see, I am a German women, who supports Israel and who opposes the Kenyan dictator.

Let division be theirs.
