Piers Morgan Needs a History Lesson Before His Next Interview with Binyamin Netanyahu

2011 March 21

 

Last week Piers Morgan, who has replaced Larry King on CNN, interviewed Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. While it is good for Truth to speak to Power, it is always discouraging to listen to someone who is supposed to be informed display by his line of questioning that he has, at a minimum, been completely hoodwinked by the Palestinian Myth Machine which couches its narrative as a peaceful people wrongfully dispossessed of their historic birthright and shamefully treated by hostile occupiers.

This is the narrative that has gained currency in our State Department, in the chancelleries of Europe, and certainly throughout the Arab world. Nothing could be farther from the truth, yet it is passed around more frequently than the bong at Oliver Stone’s house. This is in spite of the identical al-Qaeda, Taliban, Hamas, Hezbollah, Palestinian Authority rhetoric of hatred and incitement to violence that is beamed toward Israel and the West on a weekly basis culminating in the sort of brutal murders of a peaceful and slumbering Jewish family as witnessed in Itamar last week. It is this kind of wanton butchery that over decades has come to define Palestinian society. Instead of demanding an end to it the international community, a rhetorical beguiler of one’s intelligence if ever there was one, gets excited about the future construction of 1,600 homes to be built on vacant land 1.2 miles from the Knesset.

Can the Obama Administration’s Actions Even Be Called a Foreign Policy?

2011 February 17

Sunlight, said Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, is the best disinfectant. Obviously, not enough of it has been shed in order for our Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, to conclude that the Muslim Brotherhood is a subversive organization and the parent of al-Qaeda and Hamas, which has sponsored or encouraged nearly every Islamic terrorist attack made against America and the West since it was created in 1928.

The Muslim Brotherhood has worked in fits and starts, to be sure, as its power has waxed or waned. But the goal of establishing a global Islamic caliphate under the gruesome supervision and hideous application of Sharia law has never dimmed for an instant. It is as patient as it is well organized as it is lethal. It assassinated one Egyptian president in the 1940s, fomented revolution against another in the 1950s, murdered President Sadat in 1981 for making peace with Israel and is directly linked to the terrorist plotters of 9/11. It has never ceased to spread its tentacles over the globe. So fraternal are its instincts that it now operates in more than 80 countries.

The History Lesson So Desperately Needed By Israel’s Detractors

2011 February 11

This popular post was first published here on Feb. 8, 2011.

Unable to defeat Israel on the battlefield or intimidate her by decades of terror her Muslim tormentors have anxiously turned to a different strategy. In defiance of the mountains of historical and archeological facts, let alone the biblical evidence, they have embarked on a strenuous effort to turn history upside down and wage a campaign to prove that Israel and the Jews have no legal right to the Land of Israel and that it should always have been a land over which Islamic supremacists hold dominion.

Their insatiable appetite for historical revision, bolstered by an American president who conveniently suffers from historical amnesia, has led them into the realm of lawfare, where if you torture the facts long enough eventually the facts will tell you anything you wish to hear.

However, as Howard Grief pointed out in his essay, “Legal Rights and Title of Sovereignty of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel and Palestine under International Law,” before the Arab Palestinians’ romp of fantasy can be realized they need to disprove the legitimacy of the Balfour Declaration of 1917, the Mandates System established and governed by Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations contained in the Treaty of Versailles and all the other peace treaties made with the Central Powers, i.e. Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey.

Free Speech or Hate Speech? That is the Question!

2011 February 9

In December, the King County Metro Transit Authority in Seattle was scheduled to post advertisements on their buses which showed  Palestinian children looking dolefully at some bombed buildings with the caption: Israeli War Crimes-Your Tax Dollars At Work. Due to the strenuous efforts of the David Horowitz Freedom Center, Act For America, Stand With Us, the local Jewish Federation, Atlas Shrugs and other national groups the Transit Authority decided not to accept the advertisements and informed the Israel-bashing group, the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign, who had sponsored them.

In late January, the ACLU of Washington filed suit on behalf of the Seattle Mideast Awareness Campaign seeking a preliminary injunction to uphold the Campaign’s free speech rights to publish a paid bus advertisement expressing its views on the actions of the Israeli government. Filed in US District Court in Seattle, the lawsuit says that King County’s refusal to allow the advertisement on Metro buses violated the Campaign’s First Amendment rights.

It is not surprising that the ACLU has now become an arm of an Islamic supremacist pressure group but it is disappointing that they and their client did not pay more attention to the testimony given by Colonel Kemp before the U.N. Human Rights Council shortly after the end of Operation Cast Lead:

Islamophobia or Islamonausea? Los Angeles Still Doesn’t Get It

2011 January 28

Last month the Los Angeles City Council passed a resolution supporting “any legislation that would oppose Islamophobia and random acts of violence against Muslims.” This is at a time when there are over 35,000 gang members on the streets of Los Angeles, when the school system is in distress and when there is a budget deficit of over $200 million. Rahm Emanuel once famously said that a crisis should never be allowed to go to waste, but the Los Angeles City Council is wasting its time addressing a crisis that does not exist. An epidemic of anti-Muslim sentiment might well have been expected in America shortly after 9/11. It didn’t happen then and it’s not happening now.

The FBI statistics for 2009 and the LA County Hate Crime Report published by the Anti-Defamation League both show that 4% of religious hate crimes in Los Angeles County are committed against Muslims as opposed to 3% against Protestants, 9% against other Christians, 13% against Scientologists and, wait for it, 65% against Jews. The ADL’s report is compiled using official crime statistics as well as information provided to and evaluated by ADL’s professional staff, by law enforcement officers, by community leaders and by victims.

The term “Islamophobia” implies that Americans and, in the specific case of this resolution, Angelenos have an irrational fear of Islam. Considering the attacks against us on 9/11 and the ones in Bali, Madrid, London, Glasgow’s airport and Mumbai were all carried out by Muslim terrorists there is nothing in the least phobic about the public’s attitude toward radical Islam. The shoe-bomber, the underwear-bomber, the Times Square bomber and Major Hasan at Fort Hood in Texas were all devotees of Islam. However, it is resolutions of this sort along with the insistence on the part of our president that Islam has played a vital and important role in American life, when the facts prove the opposite, that lead to an increased feeling of Islamonausea.

To Burn or Not to Burn: That is the Question

2010 September 18

Last week we were treated to yet another lecture by our Lecturer-in-Chief, Barack Hussein Obama. This time he was animated by the scheduled burning of the Koran by an insignificant pastor in Florida. No allusions to the First Amendment were made such as he gave when he endorsed the construction of the Cordoba Mosque in New York. Nevertheless, he prevailed upon Pastor Jones to reconsider his decision. read more…

J Street’s Blindness to a Declaration of Islamic Victory at Ground Zero

2010 September 2

When Islam is victorious it builds a mosque at the site of its conquest.

In an article which appeared in the August third edition of the Los Angeles Jewish Journal about the proposed Cordoba Mosque in New York to be built a few hundred yards from Ground Zero it was reported that Mr. Ben-Ami, the president and founder of “J Street” the left wing Jewish advocacy organization, had remarked:

“The principle at stake goes to the heart of American democracy and the value we place on the freedom of religion.”

Of course, nothing could be farther from the truth. There are already more than a hundred mosques in and around New York and literally thousands more throughout the United States. Building another one so close to Ground Zero is hardly necessary in order to reaffirm “American democracy” or to guarantee “freedom of religion”. These were long ago enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and have been well demonstrated in every aspect of the American experiment for over two centuries. This is about Islamic triumphalism. The original Cordoba Mosque was built as a symbol of Islamic dominance over conquered Spain. The one now proposed, and its ground-breaking ceremony to take place on the 10th anniversary of the deadly attack of 9/11, is nothing more than a celebration of that attack’s success. read more…

Was Oliver Stone Stoned When He Made His Anti-Semitic Comments?

2010 July 27

An article by Danielle Berrin in this week’s Jewish Journal about Oliver Stone’s intention to make a documentary putting Hitler “in context” shows how far Mr. Stone has strayed into the realm of fantasy.   I suspect this effort will probably illustrate just how often the bong is passed around Mr. Stone’s house as did his film “JFK” which was riddled with invention and dramatic licence of the most misleading kind stretching the ‘willing suspension of disbelief’ to the breaking point. read more…

Letter to the Editor: Why AfPN’s David Pine was Heckled and Booed

2010 June 21

Below follows Paul Schnee’s letter to the editor of The Jewish Journal, in response to David Pine’s article in last week’s edition entitled “Seeking a Bridge to a Peaceful Two-State Solution.”

Dear Mr. Eshman,

The June 15th. article by Mr. Pine of Americans for Peace Now fails to explain the real reason why he was heckled and booed at the recent pro-Israel rally outside the Israeli Consulate. It should be clear to Mr. Pine by now that if one is not prepared to endure a certain amount of dissent and abuse one ought to get out of the business of Jewish advocacy.

The pro-Israel supporters understood all too well what Mr. Pine had to say and it did not resonate with them. Many of them believe that Americans for Peace Now are prepared to sell our sacred Jewish birthright to genocidal enemies whose undiminished goal is the complete destruction of the Jewish state. Their one despairing wish is for peace but not peace at any price. read more…
