Hamas Finds Safe Haven in Britain

Right beneath the eyes of the European Union, Hamas has become a major force in England over the last ten years according to the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.  Hamas is said to be behind the threats by British officials to arrest Israeli political leaders if they deplane in Britain.

Britain issued an arrest warrant for Opposition Kadima Leader Tzipi Livni's arrest last December and General Almog of the IDF was told that he may be arrested if he disembarked from his plane in England in 2005.

England has allowed Hamas to take over the British political, legal system to spread their radical anti-Israel ideology despite the fact that the E.U. has put them on a terrorism list which clearly has had no effect in stopping Hamas from manipulating the British to issue arrest warrants for Israeli leaders.

The report by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center explains that Hamas has been  largely successful in promoting their vitriolic rhetoric because they have been able to take advantage of  Britain's open democracy, including using the Arab media in the UK, to spew its propaganda across the British spectrum.

Unfortunately, British democracy  has given Hamas free reign without questioning whether a democracy should be so expanisve that it can allow a terrorist organization to promote hate and violence . The courts in Britain have even opened up their courtrooms to suits by Hamas against the Israeli leaders showing great tolerance for the terrorist organization.

This same openness for Hamas and other terrorist organizations exists all over Europe and even in the U.S.

While free speech is definitely an integral and welcomed aspect of democracy and should be permitted under most circumstances, it can also lead to the downfall of a nation if the right to free speech is not curtailed to protect the security and well being of its citizens.

Clearly, permitting Hamas to hijack British democracy to  indoctrinate the free world with its hate and violence exceeds the boundaries of accepted free speech and will undoubtedly lead to the downfall of England and the rest of the westernized world unless Hamas's nefarious plans are thwarted.

TSA Theater of the Absurd

Did you hear about the latest  innocent American traveler thought to be a "terrorist" by airport security?

In a previous post, I told you the story of how  TSA took a child's play dough from him in New Orleans. Well, they're at it again. This time TSA targeted a developmentally disabled child  believed to be a terrorist in Philadelphia. 

A four year old developmentally disabled boy who walks with leg braces and who only learned how to walk recently, was traveling with his father and mother from Philadelphia to Orlando, Florida. When they were going through the security machines, TSA told the parents that the child had to remove his braces. The father informed TSA that his son could not walk without the leg braces.  That did not allay TSA concerns as they continued to demand that the boy take the leg braces off. The boy's mother offered to walk him through the detectors once they took the leg braces off. Well, that was not good enough either. They said the boy had to walk through the detectors himself without any assistance.

Thankfully, the boy was able to walk without getting hurt or falling. He certainly could have fallen and injured himself only because the TSA required that the disabled boy take off his leg braces.

TSA eventually apologized for the way that this boy and his family were treated.

But, guess what TSA said they should have done instead.  Ann Davis, Spokeswoman for the TSA, said you guessed it that the boy should have been  taken to a private room and swabbed for traces of explosive materials.

Apparently, as ridiculous as it seems, young American children, particularly four year old disabled children with leg braces, are thought by TSA to be terrorists connected to Al Qaeda who have to undergo strict scrutiny to see if they are carrying any explosive devices.

In all of my years of schooling, I would never have predicted that a four year old developmentally disabled child from Camden, New Jersey could have the ability to blow up a plane or terrorize other passengers.

You learn something every day.

Bleak future for the dems

Here is a tentative  list of the top Democrats so far not running in the 2010 elections

1) Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut
2) Sen. Byron Dorgan of North Dakota
3) Sen. Roland Burris of Illinois ( Well he did not have much of a shot anyway)
4) Arkansas Congressman Marion Berry
5)Arkansas Rep. Vic Snyder
6) Rep. Bart Gordon of Tennessee
7)Rep. Dennis Moore of Kansas
8)Rep. John Tanner of Tenessee
9)Rep. Brian Baird of Washington
10)Sen. Ted Kaufman of Delaware
11)And, now Sen. Evan Bayh of Indiana

And for all of the resignations, there are several Democrats who are running like Sen. Blanche Lincoln of Arkansas who are in danger of losing their seats to Republicans.

2010 is not looking like it will be a good year for the Democrats. The Republicans surely know what its like to not have a good year after President Obama was elected in 2008. But 2010 may end up being a recovery year for the Republicans.

So Much for Free Speech at UC Irvine



See Michael Oren's Speech in its entirety Here.

Palestinian Indoctrination of Children

Despite that the fact that the mainstream media refuses to cover the ongoing indoctrination of Palestinian children, the Palestinian Authority and Hamas continue to inculcate their children with vicious lies about Jews and the State of Israel  encouraging them to hate Jews and destroy the State of Israel. It is even considered a lofty aspiration for Palestinian children to desire to become "martyrs"  and to want to die for Allah while hunting down Jews on the streets of Jerusalem.

The psychopathic manipulation of children by cold-hearted propagandists imbuing in them a callous deisre to become mass murders is nothing short of child abuse. It is one of the worst longstanding crimes of humanity. In some instances by the time a Palestinian child comes out of the wound, he will already have had a gun placed in his hand and crowned a "Shahid" or a "Martyr for Palestine."  This colluding and destruction of a child's mind should outrage the U.S., the U.N., the E.U., and every other entity and humanitarian organization of the world. There should not be any call for a renewal of peace talks until the Palestinians put an end to their cycle of indoctrination. 

Unfortunately, there will not be any Goldstone reports any time soon decrying the barbarism in the Palestinian leadership systematically creating a whole generation of young killers.  Therefore, those of us who remain appalled as to how the Palestinians can get away with polluting the minds of their children without any condemnation from the U.N. or calls for the Palestinian leadership to be tried at the Hague, are left with the only other viable option which is to continue reporting the truth hoping that someone out there with a conscience will finally come to their senses and take action against these Palestinian child abusers.

For the record, this past January, the following video was seen on Al Aqsa TV.   In this video, a host asks a ten year old girl whether she was afraid during the last Gaza War in 2009. She responded that she was not afraid and wished for Shahada or Martyrdom for Allah.  The host jubilantly responded "she is not more than ten years old, and wants to die as a Shahida (martyr) for Allah. We all wish for this.”

Here is another recent  video of a Palestinian boy describing how he desires to take over Israel with "weapons and stones."

These examples are just a drop in the bucket. Over the years, there have been hundreds if not thousands of videos on PA TV and Hamas TV encouraging children to die for Allah and to kill Jews in the process.

What will Obama do when China says no?

Obama has announced that there will be "significant sanctions against Iran in weeks." However, Obama's tough talk will likely not convince the Chinese to go ahead and support sanctions.  China will likely veto any U.N. Security Council Resolution that institutes sanctions against Iran.

This will be Obama's first major diplomatic showdown since taking office. Will he confront the Chinese or will he maintain that America can not be arrogant and must listen to China's concerns vis a vis sanctions?

Growing Calls for Obama to strike Iran

With Iran announcing the production of attack drones with surveillance capabilities and its continual antagonism towards Israel; two prominent Republicans have joined the bandwagon in calling on President Obama to strike Iran or back an Israeli strike on Iran.

Over the weekend, former Alaksan Governor Sarah Palin, who was  John McCain's running mate in 2008, predicted that Obama could actually win in 2012 if he backs Israel and decides to strike Iran. She stated "say he decided [President Obama]  to declare war on Iran or decide to really come out and do whatever he could to support Israel–which I would like him to do. That changes the dynamics of what we can assume will happen between now and three years. Because I think if the election were today, Obama would not be elected.”

Former Governor Mike Huckabee, who ran in the last Presidential election and hosts his own show on Fox News,  stated on a recent trip to Israel that the U.S. should support an Israeli strike on Iran.  Huckabee explained his justification for a U.S.-backed Israeli strike on Iran. He stated that Mahmoud Ahmadenijad's    "rhetoric says that the Great Satan is the United States. So he sees Israel as a little devil, but he sees the Unites States as the Great Satan. Anything that is done to Israel is not being targeted solely toward Israel. The ultimate target is the United States."

Unfortunately, Huckabee, opined that Obama is "more concerned whether Jewish families build bedrooms on their apartments."

The problem, as Huckabee correctly eluded to,  is that the Obama Administration does not have the philosophical mindset to support a strike on Iran. Perhaps, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton summed up the Administration's position regarding Iran when she said  on CNN "in terms of a country, obviously a nuclear-armed country like North Korea or Iran pose both a real or a potential threat, but I think that most of us believe the greater threats are the trans-national non-state networks," referring to Al-Qaeda.

Shortly after Mrs. Clinton made her remarks, Iran announced that it intends on producing a 20-percent grade uranium which will undoubtedly be used as a nuclear warhead to attack Israel.

Child gives birth to a child

 A 11 year old girl in the Northeastern part of the U.S. gives birth to a baby girl. She became pregnant at age ten allegedly from her boyfriend. This is unbelievable. How can a child have the physical capacity to have sex at age ten and give birth to a child at age 11? What are the psychological ramifications of a young girl, who has not even reached her teenage years, facing the daunting task of raising a child when she is a child herself?   Two doctors discuss the underlying issues on Fox News seen below.

What I want to know which no one is discussing is how could this 11 year old girl's parents allow their daughter to be in a situation where she could have sex and become pregnant?  Now maybe this was just an accident and nothing could have stopped this 11 yr. old girl from becoming pregnant at age ten. But there seems to more to the story. Did not anyone foresee the danger looming ahead of  a 10 yr. old having a boyfriend which could lead to a sexual encounter?

Unfortunately, this girl is going to have to deal with some very difficult issues that no 11 yr. old person should have to experience. This girl will have to forgo her formative years because someone did not have the foresight to intervene and save this girl from unnecessary anguish at an early age.

The End of Obama Health Care

If anyone ever tells you that one election does not count, tell them about now Senator Scott Brown. With his induction into the U.S. Senate effective February 4, 2010, the Democrats no longer have filibuster proof power and the Republicans will have enough votes to block Obama's health care plan from passing should it come to that. All it took was the people of Massachusetts to change the course of history.

See below to watch the historic moment when President Obama's lifelong dream to push health care down the American people's throats came to standstill.


Al Qaeda Months Away From Another Attack

CIA Director Leon Panetta believes that Al Qaeda could attack America within the next three to six months.  Very scary prediction. But its reality. America in its vast amount of territory is exposed to the threat of terrorism every day. Panetta told the Senate Intelligence Committee "the biggest threat is not so much that we face an attack like 9/11. It is that Al Qaeda is adapting its methods in ways that often times make it difficult to detect."

He further elaborated that  the terrorist organization is recruiting in-country recruits or homegrown terrorists to carry out attacks as well.  The Director of the National Intelligence  Dennis Blair has also warned that  the terrorists could launch cyber computer-related attacks on the U.S. which could cripple the economy since technology has become the epicenter of business production. Unfortunately, the Obama Administration has requested that funding to combat cyber attacks be decreased.

The major concern is that with the focus on the economy and health care, people are forgetting that terrorism is still a very dominant force in the world and a very real threat. Thankfully, we have not had a successful terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 which is a relief but also a deficit at the same time because when everything is going well people let their guard down. I am afraid that an overwhelming amount of the American people do not fully realize how serious is the threat of terrorism.

Obama and the Democrats  have a propensity to speak in localized instead of widespread regional terms when describing how Al Qaeda is the only organization that attacked the U.S. on 9/11 and therefore is the main entity that poses a threat to U.S. security. (This gives people the incorrect impression that the threat to the U.S. is based in Afghanistan when it extends way beyond a single country)  Yes, Al Qaeda is leading worldwide Jihad attacks. But, Al Qaeda is hardly alone. ( Hamas is now debating whether to attack Israelis and Jews outside of Israel).  In fact, the threat largely emanates from a vast radical Islamic network spread all over the world in many different countries, in the Middle East, in Europe, even in America. This radical network composed of various terrorist organizations fervently  believes that the "Infidel" (anyone who does not believe in their radical ideology which includes Jews, Christians and moderate Muslims)  must be killed. They will fight until the end of days until every last "Infidel" is annihilated.

This demented philosophy largely  means that Western civilization will have to engage in an embattled conflict with radical Islam for many years to come perhaps until the end of time and that's not an exaggeration by any stretch of the imagination.   It also means that people can not expect that the focus on preserving national security will disappear or become less important simply because our political leaders attend to domestic matters. Even though we have a lot of legitimate highly significant needs and concerns that must be attended to, (i.e. the economy, employment, health care) national security must remain our top priority requiring our foremost attention.

If we forget that we are still fighting a war on terror as serious as in the days after 9/11 and instead shift gears to focusing on the economy for example, we will not have to worry about the economy because we the "Infidels" will not be here to have an economy.

U.S. Line of Defense Fails

                              BREAKING NEWS

The U.S. recently conducted a mock drill over the Pacific Ocean  in an attempt to circumvent an Iranian ballistic missile attack. Unfortunately, the plan did not go as planned . After malfunctioning, the Radar System failed to shoot down a mock ballistic missile. According to the Missile Defense Agency, the Sea-Based X Radar System "did not perform as expected."  Raytheon and Boeing which operates the radar system had no immediate comment. This is the first time the Radar System had been tested which costs $150 million.

Meanwhile,  Mahmoud Ahmadenijad has issued a brand new threat stating that on February 11th , Iran will "deliver a telling blow to the global powers." 

Iran's Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, has also joined in on the chorus of threats emanating from Iran promising  that Israel will be annihilated soon although he did not specify a time frame when that could conceivably happen.  He further elaborated that “the region would soon witness annihilation of the Zionist regime" adding that "the timetable for the destruction would depend on the functioning of the Islamic countries and Muslim nations."

Those who do not take Iran seriously and fail to take action to eliminate the Iranian threat will be denied a respectable place in history.
