From this weeks Goldberg File – Jonah Goldberg’s point on the problem of trying to keep up with Obama’s Scandals…(emphasis mine) It is always remarkable to me — which is why I am remarking upon it — how the only way this president can be rescued from a bad news cycle is if an even […]

Is the UN Fair to Israel?

by Steve MacDonald September 15, 2014
Thumbnail image for Is the UN Fair to Israel?

Israel is a vibrant democracy with full rights for women and gays, a free press and independent judiciary. You would think that the United Nations would celebrate such a country. Instead, the UN condemns Israel at every turn to the point of obsession. How did this happen? Anne Bayefsky, director of the Touro Institute on […]

Comment Board Doodlings:
Israel Didn’t Scorch Enough Earth In Gaza!

by Mike August 6, 2014

Reacting to a borderline anti-Semitic piece on ZeroHedge (normally a good economic blog) which lamented Israel’s scorched earth tactics without context, I penned the following: The inhabitants of Gaza deserve what they get, and they haven’t been punished enough yet. Given a vote, they chose terrorist overlords instead of a government. Given aid, those overlords […]

So, Hamas keeps denying they shoot rockets from civilian areas?

by Skip August 5, 2014

I keep thinking that the Israeli-Hamas war is like that between the idea war between Republicans and Democrats.  Both Hamas and Democrat / Lefties are good at emotional demagoguery relying on both heartstrings and low info population and both pretty much use “its for the children” (albeit in somewhat different ways).  But occasionally, facts do crop up […]

John Kerry Seen On His Way To Negotiate “Piece” Deal In Nantucket

by Steve MacDonald August 4, 2014

John Kerry got a chance to take a break from ruining US relations with Israel, today. I suspect he took out that very expensive boat of his, the one he did not want to pay Massachusetts taxes on as a US Senator from Massachusetts, and motored over to Nantucket Island, where he is seen in […]

I must have missed this one.  Take a few minutes to watch as it simplifies the “problem” in the Middle East. Update.  I did post this back in April. Enjoy it again in English, with Spanish subtitles because Peace is possible.

Iron Domes – the difference between Israel and Hamas

There is not even a shadow of moral equivalence between the two entities: one is to protect its citizens and the other uses its citizens to protect itself. (H/T: Liberal Logic 101)

It is always fun to watch a Liberal getting tossed under he moral equivalency bus.   This installment comes courtesy of Guy Benson via Hot Air.  Liberal Sally Kohn tries to call “hypocrisy’ on those who support Israeli violence but object to Palestinian violence. How can same people who believe Hamas violence justifies Israeli violence […]

Protecting Civilians From Missiles vs Protecting Missiles With Civilians

by Mike July 19, 2014

An excellent roundup of discussions on Israel’s self defense and surgical strikes vs Hamas’ cynical use of human shields on TownHall.com I’ve been advocating for years that the point of original of each rocket or missile be turned into a smoking crater – if Hamas kept their rockets and military depots away from homes and […]

The BDS Movement. Published on Jul 14, 2014 The latest strategy employed by those who wish to strangle Israel is called BDS. It may sound harmless, but do not be fooled. It stands for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions, and not only is it poisonous for Israel, but for the world as well. Israel is one of […]

Palestinian Spox Sami Abu Zuhri confirms Palestinian cult of death: “We are leading our people to death.”,

by Skip July 14, 2014

A lot of the politicos, chief amongst them was Bush II, use the PC phrase “Religion of Peace” when talking about Islam, but then we see actions that belie that phrase (but again, that’s what happens when Political Correctness becomes a religion itself).  Well, thanks to a gaffe (read: truth spoken when not concentrating on the […]

So You’re Really In Favor of a ‘Two-State’ Solution Then?

Muslim clerics and leaders of terrorist groups are always telling us what they want. They want us to die.  Survivors will be treated as less than animals.  Allah requires the faithful to cleanse the world to create the global Ummah.  And it is Ok to lie, cheat, break vows, whatever is required. (Just like Democrats.) […]

ACLU In A Nutshell

by Ed Naile February 27, 2014

I have some fun with students who have had someone send them to prestigious (liberal) schools because they make such easy targets. They are predictable and very limited in their critical thinking skills, a tendency that extends into that special sort of progressive adulthood they live in after college. Then comes the really special needs […]

Another incoherent answer by CongressCritter Annie Kuster “on the Middle East” – Negotiating with Palestinians? Really?

by Skip December 15, 2013

When I first listened to this, I had no idea what to post about it – absolutely incoherent of an answer.  At least on her Benghazi answer, she had the good sense to say pretty much nothing.  Here, you can tell that what’s she believes is not what she can say to this audience (or, […]

The United nations is a complete waste of time unless of course you just want to get together and bash Israel. Following votes at the General Assembly’s Fourth Committee which includes all 193 UN member states, nine resolutions were adopted condemning Israel.  Not one resolution was adopted targeting any other country, not even Syria where […]

You can’t claim a moral imperative for war if you have no morals.  Perhaps that explains this, or maybe it is just jealousy? Israel conducted air raids against a Syrian missile base near the port city of Latakia early on Thursday, according to an anonymous US administration official. The official, speaking to CNN, said Israel […]

Clearer and clearer – Determined Weakness

by Skip September 29, 2013

In foreign policy, this means cozying up to our enemies while putting “the nose in the air” when dealing with our “former” allies.  Yes, the scare quotes are intentional. To be specific, if you were Israel, would this be all that comforting?  This from the This Week with [Clinton’s former wonder boy] George Stephy’s interview […]

Is the charge that Israel is like apartheid South Africa valid or a slander? Who better to answer this question than someone who grew up in South Africa, suffering under its apartheid? Watch a five-minute video with Kenneth Meshoe, a brave South African who lived through apartheid South Africa, travels regularly to Israel, and knows that apartheid […]

Middle East Embassy Airlift

by Steve MacDonald August 6, 2013

Not for nothing but one of the goals of the Islamists, be they the Muslim Brotherhood variety with whom Barack Obama has aligned, or the Shiite/Syria/Iran variety with whom he appears to be opposing, is to remove all foreign influence from the region.  There can be no taint.  That is part of the reason why […]

“I didn’t say he said that,” Wasserman Schultz insisted. “And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. It’s not surprising they would deliberately misquote me. What didn’t she say that they say she said? “We know — and I’ve heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this — that what the Republicans […]
