Condi's Misplaced Zealotry

250rice_reu If Condi Rice displayed the same passionate zeal during UN negotiations over the terms of a cease-fire with Hizbullah in the 2nd Lebanon War,

as she does in bullying Israel to make concessions, no doubt there would have been a strong Chapter 7 mandate, instead of the weak 1701 Resolution.

As it was, Secretary Rice appeared eager to give in on the original American position and conceeded to the demands of the Arabs and the Europeans.

With the result being a token UNIFIL force with observer status only. And that's exactly what they do, observe and watch Hizbullah re-arm and re-supply.

This is revealed from the contents of a letter entitled " Security Council discussions" sent by the Israeli deputy ambassador to the UN, Daniel Carmon, to the Israeli Foreign Ministry.

The letter describes a conversation between former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, and Dan Gillerman, the Israeli Ambassador to the UN.

Bolton related to Gillerman that Condoleezza Rice had taken the task of negotiations upon herself and was personally involved in all of it's details.

In regards to the final draft resolution cease-fire Bolton said:

"Rice is the one who agreed to the last two changes that were discussed..."

Those last two changes were caving in to the Arabs and Europeans who wanted the weak 1701 toothless resolution with no enforcement mandate, as opposed to the much tougher Chapter 7 mandate. As well as a mention of Sheba Farms.

Now why didn't Rice display some spunk and zeal, and insist on the tough Chapter 7 mandate and not back down? The following tells us why.

A report from insightmag published in August 2006 during the war states:

"Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has become increasingly dismayed over President Bush's support for Israel to continue it's war with Hezbollah."

" State Department sources said Miss Rice has been repeatedly stymied in her attempts to pressure Israel to end strikes against Hezbollah strongholds in Lebanon. Sources said the Secretary's trip to the Middle East last week was torpedoed by the Israeli air strike of a Lebanese village in which 25 people were killed."

"I've never seen her so angry", an aide said.

The report leaves off the fact that terrorists deliberately launched their Katyusha missles from civilian areas. Hoping for civilian casualties for propaganda use. See Hezbollah's Civilian Strategy-Epoch Times.

To his credit, President Bush resisted calls for an immediate cease-fire. In the hopes that Israel would be able to inflict significant damage on Hezbollah. Perhaps a decisive crippling blow. But the Olmert government missmanaged the opportunity.

Condi Rice was in the camp of those advocating an immediate cease-fire. This explains her lack of zeal to hold firm for the tough Chapter 7 mandate. Her wilingness to conceed to the weak token 1701 UNIFIL resolution. And as a consequence, the re-arming and re-supplying of Hizbullah. Or Hezbollah, which ever the correct spelling is. I've seen both.

However, when it comes to demanding Israel make travel easier for terrorists, or other concessions, Condi Rice displays a zeal and tenacity unmatched by no other.

Update: 04/02/08- Aaron Klein of WorldNetdaily reports that the recent removal of security roadblocks in Judea and Samaria, due to pressure from Rice, may have enabled an attempted terrorist attack.

Update: 04/24/08- Unifil "peacekeepers" stopped a truck that was suspected of containing arms, upon attempting to inspect, the Unifil troops were run off by Hezbollah gunmen.

Condi's "Jihad" Against Israel: Best Diplomat The PLO Ever Had

320724844_4f23955009_m Condi Rice does a good job as Secretary of State--for the Fatah Palestinian Authority.

Condi is in Israel. And has just succeded in pressuring the weak Israeli government into making travel eaiser for terrorists.

Never mind the promotion of terrorism in official Palestinian Authority media, as well as the continued promotion of Holocaust denial, and the glorification of terrorists as heros by Abbas's PA media.

Never mind that the Palestinians danced in the streets and celebrated 9/11.

Never mind that the most recent polls show the vast majority of Palestinians prefer violence and terror to real peace.

Never mind that Abbas does not recognize the right of Israel to exist as a Jewish state.

Never mind Abbas recently saying " Now we are opposed to armed conflict because we are unable. But in the future 'stages', things may be different. See the post Abbas Is Like Arafat-Makes Double Talk.

No, none of these things are an impediment to Condi Rice pressuring Israel to make more and more concessions to those who want Israel's destruction.

She is without doubt the best diplomat the Fatah PLO has ever had.

I would not blame Israelis if they thought Condi Rice was the real "Wicked Witch of the West". At some point in time it would not be surprising if a political tornado of some sort dropped a house on her.

Rice displayed the same type of diplomatic arrogance Mike Huckabee refered to in an article he wrote in "Foreign Affairs". Huck said the policies of the Administration had an arrogant bunker mentality. Rice just has an arrogant mentality:

"We will monitor exactly what the Israelis do and the purpose is to improve the Palestinian's freedom of movement," [ make travel eaiser for terrorists].

American special envoy General William Fraser, Rice explained, will be following Israel's implementation of the Road Map closely " and making sure the road blocks are indeed removed and that this has an impact on the Palestinian's freedom of movement.."

Rice went on to say," I expect this to happen very soon."-She "expects". In other words she is saying, "You better do this or I'm gonna be ticked."

She won't ever take that same atitude with Abbas. Guaranteed.

Gaffney was certainly right about Rice behaving like a zealot. This is Rice's second trip to Israel in three weeks. She has probably been there eight times or more this year. I take it a step further and say she behaves as a pro-islamic Palestinian zealot.

McCain was just there. Cheney was just there. President Bush was just there, and is expected there again in May. The Administration is really turning up the pressure on Israel to make concessions. While the Arabs and the PA led by Abbas have conceeded nothing.


The Obama Deception Continues

After the firestorm erupted over statements made by Jeremiah Wright, Obama's pastor, Obama insisted he was not in attendance at his church when those statements were made.

It has been pointed out how inconcievable it was that during 20 years of a relationship with Trinity United Church of Christ and it's pastor, Obama had no knowledge of his pastor's radical views. And that it was not an impediment to him maintaining a membership or his relationship with Wright.

Indeed, when Obama made his speech he reversed himself and admitted that he was in attendance at this church and did hear such radicalism. Again, it was not an impediment for him.

But the water just keeps getting more murkier all the time. And the level of deception keeps intensifying.

First, Joel Pollak, blogger at Guide to the Perplexed gave us the scoop on Obama's connection to the co-founder of the islamist propaganda website Electronic Intifada, Ali-Abunimah. who is supporting and campaigning for Obama.

Here is a link to a not-so-friendly debate between Daniel Pipes and Abunimah.

As Pollak relates, Abunimah "spilled the beans" on Obama:

"As he came in from the cold and took off his coat, I went up to greet him. He responded warmly, and volunteered, ' Hey, I'm sorry I haven't said more about Palestine right now, but we are in a tough primary race, I'm hopping when things calm down I can be more up front.' "He referred to my activism, including columns I was contributing to the Chicago Tribune critical of Israeli and U.S. policy", ' Keep up the good work.'

"...when things calm down I can be more up front."--Obama

More up front in agreement with the islamist propaganda of Abunimah whom Obama wants to "keep up the good work."

Arutz Sheva has more:

"Obama's about face is not surprising", Abunimah wrote. " He is merely doing what he thinks is necessary to get elected and will continue doing it as long as it keeps him in power."-Abunimah

I'll say up front I'm not in agreement with the "blame America first" sentiment expressed by the gdayworld blog. However, they do have an excellent post on the top contributors to the Obama campaign. Among them is the lobby group Jones Day.

According to the lobby watch at publicintegrity.org, Jones Day has been a major lobbying group on behalf of the embassy of Communist Red China. The lobby watch report says Jones Day has carried "the embassy's water in official Washington since 1997."

Jones Day has lobbied Congress, the Whitehouse, and federal agencys on trade and tariff issues. Speaking of trade, we currently average an annual 200+ billion dollar trade deficit with China each year. The group has also lobbied on such things human rights and religious freedom. Note, this group lobbies "on behalf" of the atheist communist government on these things.

While it will take some time to do, the gdayworld blog correctly says to "follow the money."

Another of those top contibutors to the Obama campaign is Citigroup Inc. Sandy Weill is it's chairman. A billionair. Weill is also named as a co-chair for the U.S. Palestinian Public-Private Partnership, a fund raiser group for the Palestinians largely put together by, guess who, - Condi Rice, as well as help from the American Taskforce on Palestine.

Lester Crown is also named as a co-chair for this group. Crown is also a supporter and contributor of Obama's.

And we are so well aware of Condi's sentiments as well as her utter willful blind eye to U.S. tax dollars funding and promoting terrorism against Israel. As Daniel Pipes relates in his article, " Fund The Palestinians-Bad Idea", Rice isn't content with spending our tax dollars on the palis, she wants to raise private sector funds for them as well.

In addition, Rezko Watch, has the scoop on Talat Othman, a millionair supporter of Obama and incidentally the Secretary of the U.S. Palestinian Public Private Partnership.

Othman is president of the Arab-American Buisness & Professional Association in Chicago. As well as "president of the founding committee for the Council of Islamic Organizations of Greater Chicago."

To be sure, a clearer picture is begining to emerge that tells the story that Barak Hussein Obama is not what he's trying to sell himself as. But embraces views that can only be described as pro-islamic & palestinian.

But for now, as his friend Abunimah relates, Obama is "doing what he feels is necessary to get elected..." And that means trying to conceal his real views and beliefs.

U.S. State Dept. Drops China From Worst Rights Abuser List-What?

Stacy Harp at the Persecution blog writes the following:

"I just finished reading the following paragraph and almost fell off my chair" :

The U.S. State Department recently removed China from it's list of the world's worst human-rights violators. No reason was given for the removal, although the State Department said last year that China's overall human-rights record remained poor.

Well let me guess Stacy, could the Beijing Olympics have anything to do with it?

Keeping the Olympics in mind, did U.S. buisnessmen/lobbyists with contacts in the State Dept., act at the behest of their Chinese patrons to lobby for this move? A report, " China Steps Up It's Lobbying Game, reveals the voracity of lobbying on behalf of the Chinese communist government.

In an interview Congressman Frank Wolf referenced the American lobby group Akin Gump Straus Hauer& Feld:

" The Chinese government is prosecuting Christans. They have Catholic bishops and Protestant pastors in jail. In Tibet, they are prosecuting Muslims and Evangelicals. The Chinese government is spying on the U.S. government. Why would you work for a government that is spying on the United States. Greed is driving them."-Wolf.

That last sentence from Wolf spells it out: "Greed is driving them."

See the letter Wolf wrote to this group.

Most money spent on lobbying the U.S. government on behalf of China comes from U.S. corporations: Coca-Cola, Walmart, Ford Motors, Microsoft, and others. Big wheels from those companies sit on the board of the U.S.-China Buisness Council.

Many U.S. Congressmen have called for a boycott of the Beijing Olympics over China's dismal human rights abuses and reluctance to help with Sudan. A Heritage report said a boycott wasn't feasible. But didn't explain why.

Congressman are just the tip of the iceberg of all the folks that have advocated a boycott:

Of course there are many others that have advocated a boycott as well.

The U.S. State Dept. dropping China from the Worst Human-Rights Violators list "conveniently" affords the Communist dictatorship an opportunity to propagandize the move for some "PR".  Though we certainly know better.

The Obama Deception

Obama has maintained a 20 year membership and relationship with the Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago.

The United Church of Christ is known for it's radical liberalism and bias towards Israel as pointed out in this Weekly Standard article, " The Church of Spongebob".

However, Obama's church, Trinity United Church of Christ, is far more radical.

WND reports that Obama's church has just recently removed content from it's website. Content entitled " Black Value System."

This Black Value System states 12 precepts:

  1. Commitment to God
  2. Commitment to the Black Community
  3. Commitment to the Black Family
  4. Dedication to the Pursuit of Education
  5. Dedication to the Pursuit of Excellence
  6. Adherence to the Black Work Ethic
  7. Commitment to Self-Discipline and Self-Respect
  8. Disavowal of the Pursuit of "Middleclassness"
  9. Pledge to make the fruits of all developing and acquired skills available to the Black Community
  10. Pledge to Allocate Regularly, a Portion of Personal Resources for Strengthening and Supporting Black Institutions
  11. Pledge allegiance to all Black leadership who espouse and embrace the Black Value System
  12. Personal commitment to embracement of the Black Value System

Overall this does appear very "black supremacist". Number 11 is most troubling. " Pledge Allegiance to all Black leadership"

Note: The above 12 precepts would also appear to be very "white supremacist" if you were to replace the word Black with the word White:

  • Adherence to the white work ethic
  • Pledge allegiance to all White leadership, etc.

Know what I mean?

Obama has said he was not in attendence at the church at the time his pastor made anti-America statements that are now the focus of much attention. Obama has stated that he rejects those statements.

However, Obama has had a 20 year relationship with this church and it's pastor. It is inconceivable that during all this time Obama was unaware of the views and beliefs of his pastor. And those views were not an impediment to Obama maintaining his membership or relationship with that church or it's pastor. This is very revealing.

American Thinker has more on Obama and his church, " Obama And Moral Courage"

Right Truth wants to know where the videos are, of all the sermons on love and tolerance Obama said he heard while in attendance at his church. Where are they?

In addition, Obama's website may have to make another adjustment. This from Sultan Knish:

"You can think of Father Michael Pfledger as the white Reverend Jeremiah Wright. Not only does Father Michael Pfledger have a longstanding association with Wright and his church, he has longstanding ties to Louis Farrakhan, so much so that Farrakhan has even spoken at Father Michael Pfledger's St. Sabina church."

Not only Farrakhan, but Kareem Irfan, a member of the Islamic Association of North America, who has defended beheadings, was also an invited speaker at Pfledger's church. Pfledger and Obama are well aquainted with each other. Go to the Sultan's blog for the whole scoop.

Looks like the Obama website may have to remove the name of another one of Obama's supporters in addition to the Rev. Wright.

Libya's Mu'ammar Qadhafi Hops On "Change" Theme

Qadahafi hops on board the "change" theme. What?

The terrorists will dance in the streets if Obama is elected. Now this!

Mu'ammar Qadhafi, Libya's terrorist leader, has been observing politics in America and has picked up on Obama's "change" theme.

He too is hopping on board that "change" theme!

Qadhafi says that "change" should be the Libyan model.-memri transcript

Impossible to read that transcript and not laugh at his absurdity.

You know what change that means? Islam and "dhimmitude" status for non-Muslims.

An Islamic dictatorship.Qadhafi's dictatorship. No thanks.

Granted we have some problems sometimes with our election process, such as conservatives spliting their votes between too many candidates, with the result being a not so conservative McCain geting the nomination. But that's nothing compared to what many non-Muslims have had to deal with in Muslim majority countries.

Qadhafi says Reagan was crazy. Reagan was crazy in a good way. Crazy about defending America and exacting righteous justice against those terrorists who murdered American citizens. So much so that Reagan ordered a strike that came close to "taking out" Qadhafi. He shut up for a while after that.

Over 90% of Libya is Muslim. There is great persecution of non-Muslims.

Abbas Is Like Arafat-Makes Double Talk

Bushabbas_2 President Bush, Secretary Rice, and a host of others, tout Mahmoud Abbas as a "moderate" and a man for peace. But his words and actions say different.

Today Abbas said this:

"Despite all the circumstances we're living through and all the attacks we're experiencing, we insist on peace. There is no other path."

"...we insist on peace. There is no other path."    - 3/08/08

On Wednesday, Feb. 27th,  Abbas gave an interview to the Jordanian newspaper Al-Dustur and said this:

"Now we are against armed conflict because we are unable. In the future stages, things may be different..."

" In the future stages, things may be different..." - 2/27/08

To the Western press Abbas insists there is no path but peace. To the Arab press he is opposed to armed conflict because "we are unable." But in the future stages that may be another story.

Abu Iyad, member of PLO, elaborates on the "stages" of the Phased Plan:

" According to the Phased Plan, we will establish a Palestinian state on any part of Palestine that the enemy will retreat from. The Palestinian state will be a stage in our prolonged struggle for the liberation of Palestine on all of it's territories."- Abu Iyad

Establishing a Palestinian state is but a major "stage" in the Phased Plan.

Their goal is to destroy Israel in stages, using a "peace process" to their advantage to that end. As well as ongoing terrorism.

In August 2005, Abbas credited terrorism for Israel's withdrawl from Gaza:

" You have seen with your own eyes the results of your struggle. It is a great thing when someone sacrifices himself for the sake of Allah, the homeland, and the nation, and for the sake of his children, and sees the true compensation with his own eyes...This is a departure from our land, but we will not rest or close our eyes until we see all of the settlers in the West Bank leave it."

In January 2007 Abbas said this:

"We should put our internal fighting aside and raise our rifles only against the Israeli occupation."

In addition Abbas made reference to verses in the Koran when he said this"

" The sons of Israel are mentioned as those who are corrupting humanity on earth." 

Abbas has never done anything to confront terrorism against Israel. Despite millions in financial aid.

Like Arafat, Abbas makes public condemnations of terrorism for the Western press. But his actions are opposite. Palestinian Authority TV under his control still promotes a "world without Israel."

Coward Terrorist Shoots Unarmed Students In Jerusalem

A Muslim coward terrorist shot several unarmed students at a school in Jerusalem. The terrorist was later shot and killed by a part-time student who rushed to the school after hearing the shots.

Blogger Israellycool is live blogging. The BBC report I watched on Israelycool is really biased. They call the terrorist attack an "incident."

infolive TV - from Israel.

The poor "Palestinians" in Gaza are celebrating and handing out sweets.

They are celebrating that unarmed civilians were attacked.

Will there be an international media outrage?

Update: There has not been an international media outrage. That only happens when Israel goes after the terrorists. The UN failed to issue a statement of condemnation. Nor did the UN condem any of the terrorist groups firing rockets into southern Israel. Instead, the UN condemed Israel for going after the terrorists.

"The only Palestinian state that can come from Condoleezza Rice's zealotry will be a dagger pointed at the heart of Israel, a safe haven for terror, and a threat to the United States and other Western nations."-Frank Gaffney.

Terrorists Using U.S. Weapons Against Israel

The Jpost reports terrorists in Gaza are using U.S. weapons against Israelis.

This is not new. Rice conceded in a Congressional hearing that the U.S. was possibly funding terrorism. But she still requests $ millions in U.S. taxpayer aid and military equipment for the "moderate" Fatah.
