Wikileaks Cables Expose John Kerry as an Enemy of Peace in the Mideast

2010 November 30

When Barack Obama became president, he finally put one issue to rest: No, the Democratic Party is not pro-Israel. But the WikiLeaks revelations have now put in doubt another claim: that the Democrats want peace for Israel and her neighbors.

The question is raised with regard to John Kerry, the Democrats’ previous standard-bearer. One of the leaked diplomatic cables divulges that in a meeting with the emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa, Kerry “added that Netanyahu also needs to compromise and work the return of the Golan Heights into a formula for peace.” read more…

Clinton administration’s terrorist friends in Southeast Asia still wreaking havoc in our name

2010 November 27

In the run-up to the election of the U.N. secretary-general in 2007, a group of high-level former Clinton administration officials conspired to attempt to replace the frontrunner and well-respected South Korean Ban Ki-moon with the trustee of a Saudi-funded Wahhabist Muslim organization linked to al-Qaeda. read more…

Exposing the “Media Terrorists”: An Interview with Philippe Karsenty

2010 November 22

When Islamic terrorists strike, their sympathetic friends in the media seek to justify it by looking for “root causes.” They should be careful what they wish for, because Philippe Karsenty can prove that for the several thousand killed since the beginning of the Second Intifada, the media themselves own the lion’s share of the blame.

“I call them media terrorists,” Karsenty says. “You can put a bomb in a restaurant and you can kill ten people, and it’s dramatic and it’s terrible. But when you’re broadcasting this kind of a fake news report you are killing more than ten people. It’s a terrorist action, it’s a media terrorist action, and I think they should be treated that way.” read more…

The Left’s Love Affair With Anti-Semitic Fundamentalist Muslims Continued: Hillary Clinton Reaches Out To Anwar Ibrahim

2010 November 4

The next generation of would-be Muslim leaders hopes to ride a wave of anti-Semitism and promises of eradication of the Jewish nation to power. And though in most cases the American governing class avoids publicly supporting them, there is one exception: Malaysian opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim, who is about to receive an official visit from Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Anwar’s anti-Semitism is classic and unabashed; he thinks there are “Israeli intelligence personnel in the Police IT unit,” that Jews are controlling Malaysian foreign policy on Iran and “the Palestinian question,” and that his opponents have close ties to the “Zionist regime”–always the Zionist regime–and helped start a think tank for one of the Islamic world’s oldest terrorism organizations, among many other examples. read more…

To Obama and Clinton, Israel Is Merely “An Aspiration”

2010 October 15

The State Department's map of Israel?

In an ironic twist, the Israel-does-not-exist propagandizing that Hillary Clinton once attacked as child abuse is being regurgitated by her own State Department.

It’s taxpayer funded Arab agitprop, and it was on display at Tuesday’s press briefing with State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley, which was significantly more illuminating than he intended. Here is the first of the two crucial exchanges: read more…
