Sharia: Coming Soon to a Town Near You!

2010 August 7

The text of this article comes almost entirely from an email message of one of my correspondents. The message is filled with such a pain, outrage and frustration that I only slightly edited it, leaving 99 percent of the text intact.

This is in New York City on Madison Avenue, not in France or the Middle East or Yemen or Kenya: read more…

The New American Royalty – Ultra-Liberal and Super-Progressive

2010 August 6

As much as I want to express my utter outrage at the sight of the new American kings and queens (all progressive!), I’ll still try to restrain myself and operate with dry numbers, not with raw emotions. Here’re several questions for the readers of this article:

Question One: What do you think is the cost of Michelle Obama’s latest trip to Spain? The trip that you and I, American taxpayers, have paid for out of our rapidly emptying pockets?

What’s More Idiotic: A Holocaust Memorial at the Atlantic City Boardwalk or a Mosque Next to Ground Zero?

2010 July 28

The world is abundant in sacred memorials, whose dignity shouldn’t be violated under any circumstances:

It’s impossible to imagine a farmer’s market in the middle of the Arlington Cemetery in Washington, DC.

It is sacrilegious to build an amusement park on the plaza next to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Only idiots might decide to put up a Memorial to Anna Frank in the red-light district of Amsterdam.

Thomas Edison and Bill Gates, You Are Not Alone! You Are in the Company of Great Inventors From the World of Islam!

2010 July 23

Several days ago, the InventorSpot online magazine published a story about an exhibition at the London’s Museum of Science (January – July, 2010). The story was titled Golden Age Of Islam Presents the World With 1001 Inventions.

It is well-known that The Golden Age of Islam (8th – 13th centuries) had charmed the whole world with amazing fairy tales known as One Thousand and One Nights. (It was, by the way, one of the first books that I read in my long-ago-vanished kindergarten years). But I must confess that I have never ever heard of One Thousand and One Islamic scientific discoveries – neither in my childhood, nor in my adult years.

A Mendacious Interview: Obama Speaks to Israelis

2010 July 12

“The Holy Koran tells us: ‘Be conscious of God and speak always the truth.’ That is what I will try to do – to speak the truth.”

Barack Obama, Cairo, June 4, 2009

Everybody knows that most politicians are liars. And politicians with legal education are, more often than not, double-liars. And if these lawyer-politicians were educated at Harvard, at all places, they are – pretty much by definition –  triple-liars.

Obama Sits on the Fence at Our Southern Border

2010 July 7 reported on July 1st:

In his speech Thursday at American University in Washington, Obama seemed to suggest that border security isn’t that important in passing immigration reform. In fact, he raised doubts that the border could be secured at all. “America’s borders are “just too vast” for the immigration problem to be solved with fences and border patrols alone,” Obama said.

Smashing the Last Statue of Stalin

2010 July 1

The prominent Yugoslav dissident writer, Milovan Djilas, wrote in his book, Conversations with Stalin:

Every crime was possible to Stalin, for there was not one he had not committed. Whatever standards we use to take his measure, in any event – let us hope for all time to come – to him falls the ‘glory’ of being the greatest criminal in history. For in him was joined the criminal senselessness of a Caligula with the refinement of a Borgia and the brutality of the Czar Ivan the Terrible.

General McChrystal and the Lost Opportunity to Teach Obama a Thing or Two

2010 June 27

General Stanley McChrystal should have told Barack Obama what General James Scott (“Gentleman Jim”) had told President Jordan Lyman fifty years ago:

Listen, Mr. President, you have lost the respect of the country. Your policies have brought us to the edge of disaster. Business does not trust you. Military morale has sunk to the lowest point in thirty years. I must say further, Mr. President, that it borders on criminal negligence not to take some immediate action. If you persist in that path, I shall have no recourse as a patriotic American but to go to the country with the facts.

A New Twist in the Obama Cult of Personality (Part II)

2010 June 23

A kind soul, with the nice-sounding pseudonym TipofTXTeaParty (which reveals that he/she is probably a Texan, deeply involved with the Tea Party), placed this commentary to my June 21st blog “A New Twist in the Obama Cult of Personality”:

Fine post, Alexander. Your perspective on politics in this country is deeply appreciated and sorely needed.

The “mass deification” of Obama you describe isn’t just about the Left’s obsession with Obama. Elevating Obama to deity status in the absence of any achievement worthy of merit trivializes the achievements of actual heroes and cultural icons.

A New Twist in the Obama Cult of Personality

2010 June 21

On June 19, the Central Florida website reported this new development in the long and especially troubling saga of the Barack Obama cult of personality:

On Friday, Orlando leaders made President Barack Obama Parkway the first road under construction in the nation, named after our 44th President, and surely one of the few in history to be named after a sitting president in his first term.

Doug Powers wrote sarcastically at Michelle Malkin’s Blog on June 19: read more…

Useful Idiots: A Jewish Flotilla Goes to Gaza

2010 June 7

The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, although left-leaning, is one of the pillars of the Israeli media. In fact, it’s the most widely-read paper in the country, and I am one of its readers. On June 6, while scanning the paper’s Ynet website, I suddenly came across an article that left me totally flabbergasted. It started with this paragraph:

The German-Jewish organization Jewish Voice for Peace in the Middle East is preparing a Jewish flotilla to the Gaza Strip. “We intend to leave around July,” a member of the organization, Kate Leitrer, said to Ynet. “We have one small craft so far, in which there will be between 12 and 16 people, mostly Jews.”

The Modern Turkish Variety of International Hypocrisy

2010 June 5

On June 4, the pious and virtuous Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, lecturing the “cruel and heartless” Israel, publicly proclaimed:

I am openly appealing to the conscience of all humanity. During war, children should not be attacked, during war women and the elderly should not be attacked, during war civilians and religious men and women should not be attacked.

Reading this sermon, I wondered: did the words Armenian genocide cross the Prime Minister’s mind when he delivered that lofty speech? How could he appeal “to all humanity” on behalf of the Turkish society, whose history is forever spattered with the blood of innocent Armenian children and women? Didn’t he know that in 1915 his compatriots had committed the first genocide in the world history – and not against their external enemies, but against their own citizens?
