Iranian Threat a more Clear and Present Danger Than Libya

Caire Lopez, terror analyst colleague of Frank Gaffney at Center for Security Policy:

 

From CNS-

Representative Allen West: "I cannot understand U.S. role in Libya."

[Republican Congressman and retired Army veteran Allen West (R-Fla.) said he "cannot understand" America’s involvement in Libya and that U.S. military is being used as a "rent-a-force" in the region.

"For every decision there are consequences and we have to sometimes analyze what could be those consequences. Just the same with operations in Libya – I cannot understand it. I don’t know what the goal and objective are," West said in an address at the Heritage Foundation on Tuesday.]--read the rest at CNS.

In fact, we are more likely "helping" the bad guys [Jihadists] in Libya.

 

 


The Jihad in the Philippines

Two separate bomb attacks by suspected Abu Sayyaf Islamists have injured five AFP soldiers.

From ABS-CBN:

[BASILAN, Philippines - "Five Scout Rangers were injured in 2 separate bomb explosions in the uplands of Sumisip town in Basilan province on Monday, the military said.
 
Suspected members of the Abu Sayyaf terrorist group are believed to have detonated the improvised bombs, said Army spokesperson Colonel Antonio Parlade Jr., quoting a report from the Special Operations Task Force-Basilan.

"The first bomb explosion injured 3 Scout Rangers of the 13th Scout Ranger Company led by Captain Joey Magundayao, at around 8:40 a.m. in Baiwas village. The injured soldiers suffered minor shrapnel wounds and they were identified as Staff Sergeant Dennis Espanola, Private First Class Louie Orina and Private First Class Jonard Olivar," Parlade said in a press statement.
 
He added that around 7 hours later, another bomb explosion injured 2 soldiers belonging to the 11th Scout Ranger Company led by Captain Rholie Villaluna, while the unit was patrolling Bohe Piyat village in the same town."]

The soldiers were tracking Abu Sayyaf Islamists suspected in recent kidnappings in Basilan.

The Abu Sayyaf Islamists often kidnapp-for-ransom in order to finance terror jihad attacks. The group has ties to Al-Qaeda and other global jihad groups. As well as the MILF [Moro Islamic Liberation Front].

"In The Presence of My Enemies": A Review of the book:

Martin and Gracia Burnham were celebrating their 18th Wedding Anniversary at the Dos Palmas Resort, when they and several others were abducted and taken hostage by the Abu Sayyaf.

They were forced to experience and witness the most cruel sufferings and humiliation. Of fellow hostages and themselves.

Throughout the ordeal, as Gracia Burnham relates, "We never forgot who the bad guys were."

This is important and cannot be lightly glossed over. Under very adverse circumstances in a prolonged hostage or kidnapping situation, some victims have experienced what is refered to as "stockholm syndrome".  

Some of their fellow hostages were released in order to arrange ransom for others. Others were released after ransom was paid.

Others were beheaded.

The Burnhams and Ediborah Yap, a beloved Philippine nurse, remained captive for a whole year.

Gracia Burnham gives graphic testimony to the rollercoaster of hope, despair, encouragement, disappointment, strenghth and weakness.

From the Philippine Star:

["Government Steps Up Hunt for Terror Suspects"]

In the Philippines, the MILF is like Fatah in the Middle East. It makes use of a "peace-process" as a tactic to try and gain territorial concessions for a "Bangsamoro" state in the southern Philippines.

They have their own "Phased Plan" for the Philippines.

Just as a member of Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah has described the Oslo Accords as a "trojan horse", so the establishment of the ARMM, [Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao], in 1989 was also an Islamist trojan horse in the Philippines.

This as been blogged on before:

"Philippine Islamists Using the Abbas/Arafat Game Plan."

Bangsamoro in English means "Muslim State". 

Indonesian Jihadiss Mourn Bin Laden--from the Inquire.net:

[JAKARTA—"A violent vigilante group known as the Islamic Defenders Front announced plans to hold a “mass prayer” for Osama bin Laden in this capital city of the world’s most populous Muslim-majority nation on Wednesday.

Mourners were invited to “express gratitude to the late martyr Sheikh Osama bin Laden.”]-read the rest.


Andrea Mitchell: Palin Not invited to Rolling Thunder,........no wait--

Capture 
But, about midway down her article titled "Rolling Thunder : Sarah Palin Not Invited " there is this:

"Mike DePaulo tells NBC News he had a standing offer for her to ride with them from the Pentagon across the bridge to D.C...."

"He coordinated it with a friend of his, Joe Fields, of the Alaska Veterans' Advisory Council, who had worked with Palin when she was governor."

[Rolling Thunder: Palin Invited]

["...a standing offer for her to ride with them..."--sounds like an invitation.]

"A spokeswoman for Rolling Thunder says they frequently invite celebrity guests to ride with them." 

[ "....they frequently invite celebrity guests to ride with them."-

Now why throw something like that into the article? Especially if according to Mitchell's headline, Palin isn't invited. ]

"DePaulo says he has a permit for the Palin bus to be parked on Henry Bacon Drive near the Lincoln Memorial.  He acknowledges he didnt tell current leaders of the organization that she was coming, since they were already on the road."

[So according to NBC's Andrea Mitchell, Sarah Palin isn't invited to Rolling Thunder,...but then again she is.]

Mitchell asserts that Ted Shpak, a director with Rolling Thunder, stated that Palin "is a big distraction".

But wait,......

Rolling Thunder riders praise Sarah Palin's participation in rally:

["ABC News' Sheila Marikar [@sheilaym] reports: For the riders of Rolling Thunder, the news that Sarah Palin will participate in their national rally on Sunday came as a surprise. A welcome surprise."

“I think that’s wonderful,” said Gerri Tramel, president of one of Rolling Thunder’s Tennessee chapters. “Anybody that’s involved -- Republican, Democrat, independent, whatever -- if you’re involved with our veterans, I think that’s wonderful. Not just Sarah Palin -- anyone that’s a politician.”

"For more than 20 years, as many as half a million motorcycle riders from across the country have descended on Washington, D.C., during Memorial Day weekend to raise awareness about prisoners of war and those missing in action. Rolling Thunder announced Thursday that Palin accepted an invitation to participate in its May 29 rally. She’ll kick off her One Nation Tour the same day, a bus trip along the northeast coast that aims “to educate and energize Americans about our nation's founding principles.”]

A Time For Choosing has these eye opening updates:

**Update:

["It seems someone is playing politics with the Rolling Thunder rally.

Nancy Regg, the group’s spokesman says Sarah Palin was invited by Rolling Thunder, but Ted Shpak, the group’s “legislative director” says no.

It’s most curious that Shpak sought out the left wing media as fast as he could. MSNBC, the “news” network that has hosts who call Conservative women “sluts,” gave the guy all the air time he wanted. No Conservative would do this.

Sarah Palin was never invited to speak at the event, only ride with the group. Anyone who knows or follows Sarah Palin knows the high regard she holds for the American Military, and as a former Commander-in-Chief, as well as the mother of an Iraq war veteran, knows the priorities are the honoring our military.

Some people would rather use their position to push their political agenda rather than honor the troops, and that isn’t Sarah Palin.

Palin supporters support the military and support Rolling Thunder and every group like them. Sarah Palin’s presence at the event is to honor the military especially former P.O.Ws and those Missing In Action. Obviously, it will bring attention to this important event.

Personally, as a rider myself, I am ashamed that someone like Shpak would rant in front of MSNBC’s cameras and dishonor so many good men and women with his political posturing on the eve of such an important event."]

***Update II

["More clarification from the Washington Post:

The former Alaska governor, who is the subject of a lot of overheated speculation about whether she will run for president in 2012, has accepted an invitation to participate in the annual Rolling Thunder memorial ride this Sunday, an official says.

As far as I know, she is trying to rent a motorcycle, so she can ride with her husband,” said Nancy Regg, a spokeswoman for Rolling Thunder.

Gregg says the tentative plan is for Palin to join up with the ride at the Pentagon at 7 a.m. The ride kicks off at noon, and hundreds of bikers will snake through D.C. to the event’s main stage, which will be between the Reflecting Pool and the Korean War Veterans Memorial on the Mall. The program is scheduled to kick off at 1 p.m

This just reinforces our point: Ted Shpak is not only a liar, but a liar with an agenda.

Nice going loser. You’ve managed to make this honorable event about YOU instead of the heroes who gave their last full measure of devotion for our nation.

It seems Palin Derangement Syndrome trumps all, even honoring America’s greatest."]

Ratko Mladic: What Really Happened in Srebrenica?

["Lee Jay Walker from Modern Tokyo Times:

"The government of Serbia have arrested Ratko Mladic who was the former Chief of Staff of the Bosnian Serb Army and some people are claiming that this will end the chapter of this brutal civil war.  However, Srebrenica is complex because events did not happen because of one factor but were based on the cold reality of a complex civil war where innocents were killed on all sides.  However, which Srebrenica is “real” and which is “unreal?”

Srebrenica in all it's complexity

"This topic is very complex and it is abundantly clear that the mass media is still playing a propaganda war on the whole because the same story is being told.  Yet the reality of Srebrenica is much more complex because this name is still being openly manipulated. "

"Therefore, will real issues be raised or will the Bosnian leadership, America, the United Kingdom, NATO, and others, just continue with this “whitewash?”]

Osama Bin Laden Role in Bosnia: "Guidebook" for Al-Qaeda

26163716vC7ywt1p 
Bosnian Muslim Army troops of the Al-Qaeda linked El Mujahedeen Unit parade in downtown Zenica in central Bosnia in 1995, carrying the black flag of Islamic jihad.

["Ossama Bin Laden played a key role in the 1992-1995 Bosnian civil war. Alija Izetbegovic not only issued him a Bosnian passport through the Bosnian Embassy in Vienna in 1993, but met with him at least on one occasion in Sarajevo in November, 1994. Bin Laden came to Bosnia at least two times. Bin Laden organized the recruitment of Arab-Afghan mujadeheen “volunteers” for Bosnia. He also used Islamic front organizations and charities to funnel money to the Bosnian Muslim regime and army.

More importantly, according to many prominent anti-terror experts, Bosnia was the “guidebook” for Al-Qaeda. Bosnia was where Al-Qaeda was forged in the fires of Islamic jihad."]-- Carl Savich

"Srebrenica Massacre" Invented by Bill Clinton and Alija Izerbegovic"

An excerpt:

[" After many years of investigating the war events in and around Srebrenica, I have reached a definite conclusion that there was no genocide. In July 1995, as the town was being taken over by the Serb forces, some 2,000 Muslim men lost their lives — not 8,000 as the Bosnian Muslim propaganda machinery claims, with the backing of certain Western politicians and media."

" Those 2,000 men fell in a battle against the Serbian Army, while they were breaking through to Tuzla. “Srebrenica genocide” is Izetbegović’s and Clinton’s invention, – Dorin said.]

Foxnews has this headline today:

Serbia Arrests 'Butcher of Bosnia' Ratko Mladic:

["Gen. Ratko Mladic, the brutal Bosnia Serb general suspected of leading the bloody massarcre of 8,000 Muslim men and boys, was arrested in an early morning raid Thursday in Serbia after years in hiding, the country's president said."]

Hmmm... and we just read,--

"In July 1995, as the town was being taken over by the Serb forces, some 2,000 Muslim men lost their lives---not the 8,000 as the Bosnian Muslim propaganda machinery claims, with the backing of certain Western politicians and media"--Dorin

As far as the media and Muslim propaganda is concerned,- take note how Chris Wallace in his FNS interview with Herman Cain last Sunday had no problem regurgitating the false Arab Muslim propaganda that "...Arabs were kicked out of their homes in the '48 war. "

While Herman Cain has come forth with a statement in honest admission, that he did not at the time understand the question put to him by Wallace, concerning the so-called "right of return", few seem to have noticed Wallace's promoting that Muslim false distortion.

   

 

  

 


More Painful Concessions? Really?

A key excerpt:

["Through successive prime ministers, Israel “painfully conceded” Sinai, Gaza and that buffer in Southern Lebanon which offered some strategic depth. How very generous, but what did it do, all these painful concessions, except whet the appetite for more painful concessions – until we’ve reached an American president who wants a painful concession all the way back to Auschwitz."  

"We call it “making peace through compromises.” They call it “making war through STAGES.”]--Jack Engelhard

And speaking of the "stages", or "phases"--

[A synopsis of the Phased Plan in the words of PLO leaders:

Pay very close attention to the word- stages:

"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 all of Palestine."-Abu Iyad

"...At this stage we'll prevail in our struggle [towards] the goals of the stages [plan]. The goal of this stage is the establishment of the independent Palestinian state, with it's capital in Jerusalem. When we achieve this, it will be a positive [step] and it will advance us to the next stage via other ways and means...'Every Palestinian must know clearly and unequivocally that the independent Palestinian state, with Jerusalem as it's capital is not the end of the road'. The rise of the Palestinian State is a stage after which there will be another stage and that is the democratic state in all of Palestine [i.e. in place of Israel]."-Othnan Abu Arbiah, from Palestinian Media Watch

If you are in doubt as to whether or not the destruction of Israel continues to be the goal of Mahmoud Abbas and the PLO, read very carefully the following:

On Wednesday, Feb. 27th 2008, Mahmoud Abbas, in an interview with a Jordanian newspaper said this:

"Now we are opposed to armed struggle because we are unable. But in the future stages, things may be different."-Abbas

Only five days ago Abbas Zaki, the Palestinian Authority's representative in Lebanon, gave an interview to NBN TV and said this:

"The PLO is the sole legitimate representative [of the Palestinian people], and it has not changed it's platform even one iota. In light of the weakness of the Arab nation and the lack of values, and in light of the American control over the world, the PLO proceeds through phases , without changing it's strategy. Let me tell you, when the ideology of Israel collapses, and we take, at least Jerusalem, the Israeli ideology will collapse in it's entirety, and we will begin to progress with our own ideology, Allah willing, and drive them out of all of Palestine."-Zaki

"...the PLO proceeds through phases, without changing it's strategy..."

Just this past December, Mahmoud Dahlan, a senior member of Fatah PLO, gave an interview to a Kuwaiti newspaper and said this:

"From a practical standpoint, there are no large differences between the two sides [ Fatah and Hamas]."-Dahlan    No kidding!

And this despite the propaganda peddled to the Western MSM by Abbas, Erekat, and other PLO leaders.

The establishment of a Palestinian State is the first major "stage" of the Phased Plan. This is the inherrent danger of the "Roadmap". This is why a Palestinian State must be opposed-at least anywhere from the Jordan river to the Mediterranean.]-read the full post here.

Certainly Netanyahu is aware of all this.

 

 


June 7th: Jerusalem Day

Celebrating the 44th anniversary of the liberation and unification of Israel's capital city of Jerusalem.

Jerusalem-day-celebrating-kotel-12 

On June 7th 1967 Jerusalem became a united city and restored to Israel. In 1998 the Israeli Knesset adapted a law formally recognizing the liberation and unification of Jerusalem as a national holiday.

This year Jerusalem Day will be celebrated on June 1st.

In 1980 Israel officially designated Jerusalem the undivided capital of Israel.

With that in mind, read the text of HR1006:

"The Jerusalem Embassy and Recognition Act 0f 2011 "

This bill needs our full support. Contact your Congressman.
