Obama’s Newest Lie: Another Law Broken


While the media trips over themselves to bring down Herman Cain, Obama is free to quietly break United States law AGAIN.  The law is from 1984 and it forbids ANY US funding to ANY UN organization that supports the Palestinian declaration of statehood.  Apparently laws are only obeyed if they back your agenda because Representative Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the Chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee announced that she would release the block on the security aid.  The first block is for $50 Million, the other is for $150 Million.  $200 Million dollars of YOUR money, that you worked so hard for, is going to go to the terrorist organization, the Palestinian Authority (AKA Hamas).

That’s not all the money that is up for grabs either.  It might interest you to know that Congress has already APPROVED $400 Million in civic assistance AND $1.5 BILLION for security needs.  That’s a laugh considering it is the PA through Hamas who bombs Israel day in and day out.  The bombs are not traveling the other way so why do they have security concerns?  Furthermore, what could WE do with $1.9 BILLION?  How about give it back to the taxpayers so we can start spurring some economic development?

An American official told The Jerusalem Post that “our assistance to the Palestinian people is an essential part of the US commitment to a negotiated two-state solution for Palestinians and Israelis, promoting a comprehensive peace in the Middle East.

How absurd is that?  I have shown you all in previous posts that bombs and violence are being perpetrated upon Israel consistently each and every day.  The road to peace begins with Hamas and the PA being stripped of all of their weapons.  How many times must an impertinent child be allowed to hit you with their toys before you take the toys away?  Same idea on a much more dangerous large-scale.  In this case the toys of Hamas murder innocent victims.  And our President and his administration turn a blind eye to the bombings and killings while bending over backwards to pander to the Arabs.

As if it could not possibly get any worse, Obama and French President Sarkozy got caught on an open mike November 3rd at the G20 Summit:

“I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar,” Sarkozy told US President Barack Obama during a frank exchange where the US president took him to task for backing a Palestinian request for membership of the UN cultural heritage agency UNESCO.

You’re fed up, Obama responded, but I have to deal with it all day.

As you can well imagine, the Israelis are not impressed.  Labor MK Daniel Ben-Simon came out publicly and stated, “I was embarrassed to read what Sarkozy thinks about our prime minister, and I was even more embarrassed to hear that the US President agrees with him,” Ben-Simon said.  “I am filled with shame that this is the way two of our greatest allies treat our prime minister,” he added. “I think this is the first time such comments have been publicized.”

I could not agree with him more.

Palestinian Statehood: Obama’s Put Up or Shut Up


On Monday in Paris, UNESCO, the United Nations cultural organization granted full membership to the Palestinians bid for statehood.  The voting came down as you would expect, countries that stand with us voted against and those countries who don’t voted in favor.  There was one surprise however,  Britain abstained.  Canada, Germany and Holland voted no while Brazil, Russia, China, India, South Africa and France voted yes.  No real surprise on the French, as the old joke goes… the only time the French like the Americans is when the German Army is sitting in their cafes.  However, Great Britain is walking a fine line:

As a friend of both Israel and the Palestinian authority, Britain finds itself in a delicate position. But Britain is prepared to risk a rift with Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, by crossing one of his “red lines”. This is to vote at the UN general assembly in favour of the “Vatican option”. That would mark a major step for Britain because this would describe Palestine as a “state”.

It would seem that the terrorist attacks of 2005 and 2007 have been forgotten.  Hamas is a terrorist organization and supported the attacks.  But, now in 2010, it is fashionable to embrace extremism and ignore the warnings of the United States to pull funding.

The step will cost the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization one-quarter of its yearly budget — the 22 percent contributed by the United States (about $70 million) plus another 3 percent contributed by Israel. Unless that shortfall is made up by other nations, Unesco will have to begin closing offices and laying off staff.

Thanks to the Legislators from 1990 & 1994, US law mandates a complete cutoff of American funding to ANY United Nations organization that accepts the Palestinians as full members.  The State Department has made clear that there is no wiggle room in this legislation or any waivers, so in theory we will not be giving them any money.  I say in theory, primarily because this administration has a history of ignoring US law (Operation Fast & Furious, the bombing of Libya, Obamacare).

To me the idiocy of the situation is quite clear.  As cheers erupted at the UN when UNESCO approved full membership, bombs were being dropped on Israel.  A terrorist squad that fired a Qassam rocket at Israel from southern Gaza Strip was targeted by an IAF aircraft. A direct hit was confirmed.

As a matter of fact, I have shown the constant bombing of Israel from the Palestinians in my last blog about this process.  Since that time, the bombings have continued with no visible sign of lessening.  As Abbas advocates non-violence and being a part of the peace process, the people he is leading have quite a different view.

October 4 – Two Grad rockets were fired from northern Gaza towards Israel

October 11 – A Qassam rocket was fired from the northern Gaza Strip and exploded near the Ashkelon Coast Regional Council.

October 26 – A Grad rocket fired from Gaza landed in an open territory in the Be’er Tuvia Regional Council on Wednesday night.

October 29-Four rockets were fired at Ashdod, hitting near a residental building and injuring a man.

A rocket was fired at Gav Yavne, injuring a 50 years old man in his lower limbs.[262][263][264][265] 

Two mortar shells were fired at Eshkol Regional Council.[266] 

A mortal shell was fired at Bnei Shimon Regional Council.[267] 

A rocket exploded in Merhavim Regional Council.[268]  

A rocket fired at Be’er Sheba was intercepted by the Iron Dome Defense system.[269]  

A rocket hit the city of Ashkelon.

Two mortar shells hit Eshkol Regional Council.[270]

One rocket hit an apartment building in Ashkelon, killing a 56 year-old civilian.

October 30 – Twelve rockets were fired into Israel since midnight. None of them caused casualties.

I read a post somewhere that said, when the Palestinians want peace they are the Palestinian Authority, when the Palestinians bomb people and blow themselves up, they are Hamas.  So, it’s tough to tell who is Palestinian and who is Hamas.  One thing is abundantly clear however, it is the cause du jour to think of the PA as friends and to turn a blind eye to the death and destruction they cause.  The West seems to be falling all over itself to prove how “open-minded” and “multi-cultural” it is.  While this sycophancy and denial of violence is going on, the American flag was burned at our embassy on the 10th Anniversary of 9-11,  the Palestinians pledged to back Afghanistan against the United States if it comes to that, and bombs rain down on Israel like passing showers.

And in the midst of all this confusion is Obama.  Great Britain has made her decision.  She doesn’t support us but doesn’t want to make us or the PA mad.  Obama, whose one saving grace in all this, is legislatures has the foresight to put into law a defunding clause in case the worst case scenario should occur.  This is the one time he should be THRILLED to blame a decision on someone else.  He will be able to maintain a strong stance and not take responsibility at the same time.

American Muslim Confusion: Perfect Example


So after my last post, I got a track back to another blog page that was Pro-Islam.  The author wanted to try to clear up the confusion so they posted the mission statement of the Fiqh Council of North America.  Let me give you that statement:

….the true and authentic teachings of Islam promote the sanctity of human life, dignity of all humans, and respect of human, civil and political rights. Islamic teachings uphold religious freedom and adherence to the same universal moral values which are accepted by the majority of people of all backgrounds and upon which the US Constitution was established and according to which the Bill of Rights was enunciated.

……we the members of FCNA (Fiqh Council of North America) believe that it is false and misleading to suggest that there is a contradiction between being faithful Muslims committed to God (Allah) and being loyal American citizens. Islamic teachings require respect of the laws of the land where Muslims live as minorities, including the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, so long as there is no conflict with Muslims’ obligation for obedience to God. We do not see any such conflict with the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. The primacy of obedience to God is a commonly held position of many practicing Jews and Christians as well.

We believe further that as citizens of a free and democratic society, we have the same obligations and rights of all US citizens. We believe that right of dissent can only be exercised in a peaceful and lawful manner to advance the short and long term interests of our country.

The Fiqh Council of North America calls on all Muslim Americans and American citizens at large to engage in objective, peaceful and respectful dialogue at all levels and spheres of common social concerns. We call upon all Muslim Americans to be involved in solving pressing social problems, such as the challenge of poverty, discrimination, violence, health care and environmental protection. It is fully compatible with Islam for Muslims to integrate positively in the society of which they are equal citizens, without losing their identity as Muslims (just as Jews and Christians do not lose their religious identity in doing the same).

My first thought after reading it a few times was, if that is your essential beliefs then why are you taking on the Catholics and forcing your religion on them.  If the answer is, “WE are not taking on the Catholics, those are different Muslims” then you have proven my point.  This is why non-Muslim Americans are so confused.

And to further my point, a Kent State University professor shouted “Death to Israel” during a lecture by a former Israeli diplomat.  Israeli Ismael Khaldi is a former deputy counsel general for the Israeli consulate in San Francisco.  Kent State University professor Julio Pino is a Cuban-American who converted to Islam.  Pino still retains his job at the University though I wonder if an Israeli professor said something about Death to Islam, if he would still have a job.

Regardless, this is hate speech pure and simple.  And the professor has a history of making vitriolic statements when he eulogized an 18-year-old Palestinian homicide bomber in the student-run newspaper, the Daily Kent.  Pino clearly didn’t get the memo about living in America in a peaceful and civilized manner.  Or perhaps he is reading a different Koran or using a different interpretation.  What I can tell you is this,  Baptists do not go around shouting “death to Methodists.”  Catholics don’t go to lectures and say “death to Pentecostals” in fact, in Catholicism there is a consistency that echos through parishes.  You can attend St. Joseph’s in California and St. Mary’s in New York and it will feel exactly the same.

That’s the problem and fear with Islam.  There is no consistency among the members.  One branch is ultra-radicalized and using homicide bombers, one branch is radicalized and can be provoked to violence (Major Nidal Hassan), another branch are the peaceful, living side by side people who would never engaged in violence but file lawsuits for special privileges (Catholic University) and the final branch are the ones who are quietly living their lives trying to get along, make money and raise families.

This is the struggle of the non-Muslim Americans.  We want to trust, we want to believe in peaceful co-existence and we want to get to know you.  But, every time we get close, a bomb goes off somewhere or a professor we trusted makes hates speech, or worse yet we get bullied by a bogus lawsuit to force our acceptance.  Unless and until there is consistency among the different groups, there will be fear.
