Can You Stoop Any Lower Than Supporting a Mosque at Ground Zero?

Where’s a pleasantly plump, fluent Yiddish speaking grandmother when you need one? Because there are a few people in New York City who need a slap across the head while asked the question, “Are you meshuggeneh!?!”

In a 29-1 vote, with 10 abstentions, a New York City community board voted late Tuesday to support a plan to build a mosque and cultural center near ground zero. Technically, the builders don’t need the approval of the community board. But, hey, why blow a chance to show the world your all-out approval of Islam?

Here’s a few voices of “reason” in favor of the mosque that are sure to make you look for the nearest wall to bang your head against:
"It's a seed of peace," board member Rob Townley said. "We believe that this is a significant step in the Muslim community to counteract the hate and fanaticism in the minority of the community."

"The moderate Muslim voice has been squashed in America," said Bruce Wallace, who said he lost a nephew in the 9/11 attacks. "Here is a chance to allow moderate Muslims to teach people that not all Muslims are terrorists."

Defending his position of denouncing offensive speech directed at him or at Muslims, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer said, "What I want people to do is to take a look at the totality of what they [the Muslims] are proposing. What we're rejecting here is outright bigotry and hatred . . . we have to balance diversity and look for opportunities to bring different groups together." (I don't know about you, but when I look at the "totality" of what Muslims are proposing, it scares the hell out of me.)

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said there were no security concerns about building a mosque in the area. (Yes, I paused at this point too, to LMAO.)

Cultural diversity. Political correctness. Standing up for “moderate” Islam. Hey New York City board, why don’t you ask Europe how that plan is working out for them. You are a disgrace to the victims of 9/11, to their families, to your community, and to your country.

CAIR Discovers Southern Tea Partiers Have a Mind of Their Own

What does the opposite of dhimmitude look like? Take a look at the Tennessee Tea Party, Pamela Geller, and Republican Rep. Steven King and you'll see. Not kowtowing to the demands of The Council on American-Islamic Relations to drop Geller as a speaker at their inaugural convention, the Tennessee Tea Party kept the "call it as I see it" Geller in it's line-up.
In a press release conveying their reasoning for preventing Geller from speaking, CAIR described Geller as an extremist anti-Islam speaker, far-right blogger, who heads the hate group Stop the Islamization of America. Nice try CAIR, but the Tennessee Tea Party didn't budge.
Responding to a standing ovation at the Tea Party convention with her usual moxie-infused style, Geller said, "Thank you for having the guts to have me speak. You think you're in a little room in Gatlinburg, but this is a battlefield in the information war. They [CAIR] try to shut up everybody who speaks against them. How dare they attack one human thought while they try and impose shariah law in America? They smear all of us so nobody will hear what we say. I am warning you that freedom of speech is the line in the sand."
Failing in their attempt to remove Geller as a speaker, CAIR focused their efforts on Iowan Republican Rep. Steven King. CAIR asked King to cancel his participation in the event if Geller remained on the program. Apparently not lacking a crucial part of his anatomy that so many politicians seemed to have lost when dealing with CAIR and the likes, King sided with Geller. Spokesman for King, John Kennedy, said that he believed the Tennessee Tea Party should be commended for including Geller in its line-up of speakers. He also added, "The beauty of the First Amendment is that it protects even controversial political discussion. The shame of radical Islam is that it punishes, in some instances with death, dissenting views."
Thanks Tennessee Tea Partiers, Geller, and King for acting like red-white-and-blue-blooded Americans who aren't ready for the kind of "relations" CAIR desires. Whatever you've been putting in your tea needs to make the rounds in D.C.

Jerusalem Day

Originally posted at American Thinker.
This week in Israel, Jerusalem Day was celebrated. It was a day to commemorate the liberation and reunification of Jerusalem under Jewish sovereignty during the Six Day War -- a historical moment that Israelis will never forget. Yet as talk of pre-1967 borders surfaces again and the insistence of Jerusalem being on the chopping block remains, Obama is asking Netanyahu to forget Israel's valid historical moments, and instead "seize an historic opportunity" to make peace with the Palestinians through a process that is predicated on decades of lies and propaganda.

Attending the Jerusalem Day celebration in Jerusalem, Netanyahu said, "The battle for Jerusalem is a battle for truth. There can be no justice without truth and if there is a perversion of justice vis-à-vis our city and nation, it means the truth has been perverted, because the truth is that Jerusalem is our city and we never compromised on that."

The Speaker of the Knesset, MK Reuven Rivlin also spoke at the event, "Today it is clear that a unified Jerusalem under Jewish sovereignty is not a given. We have reached the stage where the world claims that we have stolen the city and wants us to turn the clock back 43 years."

For those of us who turn the clock back and look at Israel's history through non-propaganda eyes, we are reminded how absurd it is that Israel is asked and expected to make concessions to the Palestinians. A few truths to counter the propaganda are:

The Jews have considered Jerusalem as their capital for over 3000 years. The Palestinians have considered Jerusalem as their capital for over 30 years.

The 13th century Arab biographer and geographer Yakut noted, "Mecca is holy to Moslems, and Jerusalem to the Jews."

At the start of the Six Day War, on June 5, 1967, Prime Minister Eshkol sent a message to King Hussein stating that Israel would not attack Jordanian controlled Jerusalem unless he initiated hostilities. Jordan attacked. Israel won. To the victor belong the spoils.

Both in 1948 and 1967, Palestinian Arabs left the region to avoid being caught in the crossfire of the wars, creating many refugees. Besides Jordan, the Arab nations who initiated the wars did not help the refugees.

"I don't want to impugn anybody, but only to help the refugees. The fact that there are these refugees is the direct consequence of the action of the Arab states in opposing partition and the Jewish state," Emil Ghoury, a member of the Palestinian Arabs' national leadership, in an interview with the Beirut newspaper, Daily Telegraph, 1948.

"Since 1948 Arab leaders have approached the Palestine problem in an irresponsible manner. They have used the Palestine people for selfish political purposes," King Hussein, 1960.

Some Palestinian Arabs did return to Israel. Economic assistance was provided by Israel. Arabs in the Gaza Strip were moved from camps to new homes. This caused protests from Egypt, which had offered no assistance to the refugees when it controlled the area.

Arabs who had lived in East Jerusalem were given the option of retaining Jordanian citizenship or acquiring Israeli citizenship. They were recognized as residents of united Jerusalem and given the right to vote and run for the city council.

The name "Palestinians" originally denoted a region, not a race. Both Arabs and Jews who lived in Palestine at the start of the 20th century were known as Palestinians.

"There are no differences between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians, and Lebanese. We are all part of one nation. It is only for political reasons that we carefully underline our Palestinian identity . . . yes, the existence of a separate Palestinian identity serves only tactical purposes. The founding of a Palestinian state is a new tool in the continuing battle against Israel," Zuhair Muhsin, member of the PLO Executive Council.

A British mandate in 1922 "equally" divided the land between the Arabs and the Jews giving 77% to the Arabs and 23% to the Jews. The land given to the Arabs was Trans-Jordan, which eventually became Jordan. Both King Hussein and Arafat publically stated, "Jordan is Palestine and Palestine is Jordan."

A Palestinian statehood crisis did not exist until Israel was controlled by the Jews. Before Israel was declared a Jewish nation again, Arabs in Palestine defined themselves politically as Syrians and Jordanians.

"You do not represent Palestine as much as we do. Never forget this one point: There is no such thing as a Palestinian people, there is no Palestinian entity, and there is only Syria. You are an integral part of the Syrian people, and Palestine is an integral part of Syria. Therefore, it is we, the Syrian authorities, who are the true representatives of the Palestinian people," Syrian President Hafez Assad to Arafat.

"Why is it that on June 4, 1967 I was a Jordanian and overnight I became a Palestinian? We did not particularly mind Jordanian rule. The teaching of the destruction of Israel was a definite part of the curriculum, but we considered ourselves Jordanian until the Jews returned to Jerusalem. Then all of the sudden we were Palestinians. They removed the star from the Jordanian flag and all at once we had a Palestinian flag," Walid Shoebat, former PLO terrorist.

Arafat was offered Palestinian statehood. He turned it down. The on-going conflict is not about geography. The fact that Israel exists is the real conflict. As former Egyptian President Nasser said, "The existence of Israel is in itself an aggression . . . an aggression against the Palestinian people." Nothing has changed in that regard.

Beginning in the 1920's, the Grand Mufti Amin al-Husseini, who had deep ties with the Nazis, was the driving force behind opposition to any Jewish presence in the land of Israel. He set the stage for all resistance to Jewish self-governance in Israel. His tactic was known as the "Diplomacy of Rejection." It is now called the "Peace Process."

These conveniently forgotten facts and many more like them should not only be remembered on Jerusalem Day, but also anytime the "peace process" is mentioned. Jerusalem is the heart of Israel, a heart that should never be divided. If I forget you, O Jerusalem . . . not a chance.

January 2013

by Shuli Wotever

One sunny day in January, 2013 an old man approached the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue, where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke to the U.S. Marine standing guard and said, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine looked at the man and said, "Sir, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here."

The old man said, "Okay" and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the White House and said to the same Marine, "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine again told the man, "Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Obama is no longer president and no longer resides here."

The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White House and spoke to the very same U.S. Marine, saying "I would like to go in and meet with President Obama."

The Marine, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Obama. I've told you already that Mr. Obama is no longer the president and no longer resides here. Don't you understand?"

The old man looked at the Marine and said, "Oh, I understand. "I JUST LOVE HEARING IT!" The Marine snapped to attention, saluted, and said, "See you tomorrow, Sir."

Big Apple Mayor and Bad Apples

Originally posted at American Thinker:

With record speed, Mayor Bloomberg jumped through the we-will-not-racially-profile-Muslims hoop. Giving politically correct instructions, he said that New York City will not tolerate any bias or backlash against Muslim New Yorkers following the arrest of a U.S. citizen from Pakistan in the Times Square car bombing attempt. And just so you will sleep better at night, Bloomberg added that there are "a few bad apples among any groups."

Let's take a walk down memory lane to remember what a few of these "bad apples" have done to Americans.

Wheelchair bound American murdered and thrown overboard cruise ship by bad apples

Bad apple Palestinian teacher open's fire on observation deck of the Empire State Building

3 Americans kidnapped and beheaded in Iraq by bad apples

19 American troops killed in Khobar Towers bombing by bad apples

241 American troops killed in Lebanon barracks bombing by bad apples

4 American businessmen killed in Pakistan by bad apples

American journalist kidnapped and beheaded in Pakistan by bad apples

2 agents killed and three others wounded when a Pakistani bad apple opened fire on CIA employees

4 Americans killed by remote-controlled bad apple bomb in cafeteria of Jerusalem Hebrew University on Mt. Scopus

6 killed when bad apple van bomb explodes in an underground parking garage below the World Trade Center

12 year-old & 16 year-old Americans injured by bad apple female suicide bomber in downtown Jerusalem

2 U.S. diplomats in Pakistan killed by bad apples armed with AK-47 assault rifles

American woman killed by bad apple suicide bomber in Sbarro pizzeria in Jerusalem

14 year-old American and his friend stoned to death by bad apples in Israel

2,740 Americans killed during 9/11 bad apples attacks

Father and 13 year-old daughter killed in Mubai bad apples attacks

Sadly, the list could go on and on. But at least you get the idea of how much damage "a few bad apples among any groups" can do. Especially when said group consists of over 1 billion apples.

Obama's Hearing Impairment

To help bring attention to a little known, but quickly spreading disease, new details have just been released regarding Obama’s annual physical. The president has been diagnosed with a hearing disorder known as MVPO Syndrome. It is a malady that causes one to hear Muslims’ viewpoints only. All non-Muslims wanting his or her voice to be heard; tough luck. Selective hearing has infiltrated the White House.

National prayer led by a pastor who has politically incorrect views about Islam? Forget about it, Muslims might be offended. Jewish students harassed on campuses? So what, get used to it. The Obama administration will not pursue such cases. After all, fits right into the Muslim Brotherhood's plans. Need a job? You're in luck . . . if you're a Muslim or want to do business under Sharia law.

Obama just hosted the Presidential Summit on Entrepreneurship to deepen ties between U.S. businesses and Muslim countries. Never mind America's high national unemployment rate. The official White House blog encouraged "entrepreneurs, investors, academics, leaders of entrepreneurship networks, foundations, and businesses and all those focused on advancing entrepreneurship in Muslim-majority countries, and Muslim communities" to get involved. Under Obama’s plan, contracts will be awarded through OPIC to spur investments in the Muslim world. "This is not simply an exercise in public outreach or public diplomacy," national security advisor Rhodes said. "We believe this is the beginning of forging tangible partnerships." Classic symptoms of MVPO Syndrome. First water down the idea of terrorism, then funnel more money into countries where terrorists are homegrown.

Even the New York Times recently recognized MVPO Syndrome in the article, "White House Quietly Courts Muslims in the U.S." James Zogby, president of the Arab American Institute in Washington, described in the article how MVPO has helped his causes, "For the first time in eight years, we have the opportunity to meet, engage, discuss, disagree, but have an impact on policy. We’re being made to feel a part of that process and that there is somebody listening." Obama. Listening. Zogby.

Zogby has the nasty little habit of labeling Israelis as "Nazis" and Israel's actions against the Palestinians as "a Holocaust." He co-founded the Palestine Human Rights Campaign, which served as the propaganda arm of Yasser Arafat's PLO. He also served as a board member of the Human Rights Watch, one of the most bias organizations in the world against Israel. And he just happens to be against the Patriot Act. That pesky racial profiling really puts a damper on jihadists, oops Obamian faux pas, I meant to say, violent extremists’ travel plans.

Zogby is not the only one whispering sweet nothings into Obama's ear. Hamas’ deputy foreign minister, Ahmed Yussuf recently praised the effects of MVPO Syndrome, "This administration is different from the previous administration. We believe Hamas’s message is reaching its destination." Which really translates into English, "Become a Muslim violent extremist and your message will be heard by Obama loud and clear."

Average non-Muslim American, get used to your voice not being heard by Obama. The MVPO Syndrome bug was planted in his ears a long time ago and there is no known cure. White House doctors say that they may have pinpointed one of the carriers of MVPO Syndrome who most likely contributed to Obama’s disease. Remember the lunatic fringe pastor who the network media brushed off as no big deal? Wright’s rants spewed the MVPO virus for twenty years into Obama’s ears.

And just in case Wright’s rants weren’t enough, the church bulletin carried a friendly little message on the Pastor's Page by, none other than, Hamas. Just take a moment and picture the cozy scene of Obama with his lovely wife dressed in their Sunday best, snuggled comfortably on a pew together, waiting for the rant to start. As they wait, Obama browses through the church bulletin, and umm, how interesting to find an article by Mousa Abu Marzook, deputy of the political bureau of Hamas, Islamic Resistance Movement, entitled, "A Fresh View of the Palestinian Struggle." As he reads, Obama reaches up to scratch the tickle in his ear. It’s the MVPO Syndrome bug nestling down for a long stay.
