Alright: the "French" murderers a coupla weeks ago were North-African. But the media, the politicians, and the masses, who get their info from the same media and the same politicians, are clearly anti-semitic - and islamophiliac. The first thing anybody said about the Paris murderers was they were afraid of an "anti-Moslem backlash". Now, that's neighborly love for you. The MSM coverage of ANYTHING involving Jews and especially Israel is heavily biased. Like ALL the time. Which is not the case with any Arab or otherwise Moslem nation, which are treated with kiddy gloves. Israel is not perfect and will never be. Is that a reason to hate Jews? We should then REALLY hate Germans, Russians, Japanese, Chinese, Pakistanis, Ethiopians - ALL nations.
In all civilized world, if a hostage is by error killed by a police officer in an attempt to neutralize the hostage taker, the murder charge goes to the hostage taker. That's exactly what Hamas did. Unless, of course, you get your info from CNN. There are genocidal wars many places in the world. You as a CNN aficcionado would know. Why do you think so much attention is concentrated on the Gaza conflict? However tragic the casualties (who knows how many were civilians and how many Hamas goons), the grand total is what you get in what used to be Syria and Iraq, in South Sudan, in Nigeria, and many other places on any given Sunday. Singling out the Jewish state for special treatment, courtesy of the lazy and hateful western MSM - and governments, while nightmarish genocides are taking place elsewhere, is pure, unmitigated, unadulterated ANTI-SEMITISM. I don't care what you yourself call it. May G-d provide Israel with the strength to resist Arab aggression and "good advice" from the likes of professional liars like Obama and Kerry. This time around the Jew is not a helpless victim. No more, thank you very much.

Obama’s Anti-Israel Attitude

Excuse the cliché, but I could not have said it better myself. May I refer to the great Caroline Glick's response to the Danish ambassador a few weeks ago. The ambassador, taking his cues from the EU (and the leftish Danish media), had said that the EU applies "different standards for Israel, because it is "one of us". Ms. Glick replied that the Europeans, as it has been their habit "since Jesus", apply a special standard to Jews. "It is an obsession - to pick at the Jewish State". The tragedy of it is that that historical statement of fact went totally unreported in... Europe. They do need that obesssion. Obviously...

Dr. Pipes is a well-known expert on the issues discussed here. The article fulfilled my expectations, and I thank him. One little detail seems to have escaped the author: the "Beslan Massacre". Reading reports and analyses more trustworthy than Russian media and their lazy, PC-contaminated, western colleagues, it looks likely that the Russian state was heavily involved in the death of most Beslan victims. As for the Russian Prez, he used this massive loss of innocent life to ... eliminate direct elections of regional governors, i.e. limit democracy even further. Other than that, I fully agree with Dr. Pipes and hope officials both in the US and W Europe read his column.

As I see it, the relation between Islam and Islamist terrorism and brutality is neither the "perversion" Mr. Schlichter writes about, nor the total identification referred to by "The Redneck". It is both. Islam demands that the Qur'an be taken literally, and that book holds some strong commandments. (None of that Jewish-Christian "Though Shall Not Murder" stuff). On the other side, Prez. al Sisi openly acknowledged that ALL Moslem nations have become bad examples and asked the theory people to reform the way religion is preached and applied. And hundreds of thousands of Moslems in Iraq, Kurdistan (yes, I know. But it DOES exist), Syria, even Iran - fight putting their lives on the line - against terrorists, dictators, and theocrats. And entire Moslem nations (in China, Russia, and other imperial states) really are oppressed. Nobody promised that political reality would be neat. It's not rocket science, either.

URGENT: It's Not Islam

Amen to that! (BTW "Amen" in Hebrew means "I do beieve").
For the 1st time, I am not in agreement with Mr. Ransom. He might dislike the French satirical magazine, but the issue here is not whether we should like Charlie H or any other publication. The issue is that Islamo-fascists express their dislike of just about anything by mass murder. And that Hollande, Obama, Cameron and their lesser colleagues in places such as our lil Denmark don't lose a sec in stating that the murderers are NOT "real Moslems". The case is pretty clear. And, Mr. Ransom, there was but ONE woman murdered with the CH crowd: Ms. Elsa Cayat. The reason she was killed (she har numerous times been threatened by phone): she was Jewish. The Islamist fascists and murderers had two problems: the freedom of expression in the west (a product of the Judeo-Christian value system) AND the Jews. If you don't like caricatures of a certain kind, look the other way. To call CH and these sick religiously motivated and genocidal murderers "just a matter of degree" is morally wrong.

Hollywood Celebrates Another Stalinist

I, for one, am not as astonished as is Mr. Ryskind. Many Holywood "stars" (that must be a terrible heaven...) are totally dedicated to all kinds of dictatorships, the bloodier - the better, as well as "causes du jour", like the "man-made global warming". Some of the best known openly support Castro, Chávez, and what have you. In the 30s and 40s they supported their equivalents of the time. Soviet Communism is responsible for the deaths of tens of millions of people, including those who died because of Stalin's alliance with Hitler, preparations for a war "to liberate Europe from Capitalism/Imperialism", which lead to an almost total annihilation of the Red Army when Hitler was first to attack. Russia is still to speak the truth about the Communist hell on earth from 1917 until the mid eighties. It might take a while. As for Holywood, they might never learn. It is some kind of a professional disease for "the creative classes".

NYC Mayor De Blasio’s NYPD Blahs

The sad thing is that a whopping 72% of the voters of NYC voted for this fella, even though all info about him was readily available. Like that he had been a bona-fide commie, from a commie family, and that he changed his name - twice. He calls himself de Blasio, but that's not who he is. Behaving like a spoiled Holywood actor. And talking like one.

So? What else is new? I read somewhere that both NYT and WAPO are not selling very well. Maybe we should wait a while. They cannot go forever on empty. As for Mr. Eastwood, he is a hero himself.
