Iraq's FM: al-Qaeda Exploiting U.S. Disunity Over War

What most conservatives have been trying to tell the Democrats for more than two years continues to be proven true on the battlefield; the Democrats' onslaught against every Bush administration attempt to adjust to the changing tactics and strategy of the enemy, albeit as in every war mistakes have been made, is being exploited by al Qaeda, which in turn steps up attacks to hasten a withdrawal. Simply put, the Democrats' plan to pull U.S. troops from Iraq is working less than the Bush administration's plan to keep them there. Clearly, al-Qaeda prefers the Democrats' plan, and that speaks loudly... ... more

Ofra Haza - The Greatest Israeli Singer That Ever Lived

She is said to have bridged the divide between Israel and Arab countries - and has been called the greatest singer in the last century!Ofra Haza (Hebrew: עפרה חזה) November 19, 1957 - February 23, 2000) was a popular Israeli singer, actress and international recording artist. Of Yemenite Jewish ancestry, Haza was born the youngest of nine children in the poor Tel Aviv neighborhood of Hatikvah. She became an instant local and then national success story, the subject of great pride for many Israelis of Yemenite origin. Her voice has been described as mezzo-soprano, of near-flawless tonal quality, capable of... ... more

What Liberal Slant In The Media?

For starts, this one (hat tip - Douglas L who emailed this in): An email going around the Internet points out that since the start of the war on terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, the sacrifice has been enormous. In the time period from the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 through now, we have lost a total of 3,140 soldiers. As tragic as the loss of any soldier is, consider this: below is a list of deaths of soldiers while actively serving in the armed forces from 1980 through 2004.

Would You Shake Hands With A Jew?

In late September 2004 Iqra TV (Saudi Arabia) examined public attitudes toward "the evil Jooozz" by asking a sampling of the public if they would shake the hand of a Jew. Although this happened several years ago, it is telling of what people in the Arabic culture think of Jews and of the realistic opportunity for peace between the Arabs and the Jews: If what we see in this video represents how Arabs feel about Jews, the realistic opportunity for peace between the Arabs and the Jews in our lifetime looks, to put it mildly - remote!

US Raids Capture AQI Terrorists And Iranian Weapons

Only one day after the Pentagon announced the capture of al-Qaeda mastermind Abd al-Hadi al-Iraqi, US forces in Iraq captured a number of AQI terrorists in a series of raids and discovered a cache of Iranian arms south of Baghdad. Captain Ed has more on the story and the link, along with an example of what happens when we abandon an area with a weak security apparatus in place: Now that the Brits and Danes have given the people of Basra a drop-dead date for their withdrawal, they have set in motion a fight for power that will only amplify... ... more

Dhimmi Alert: 'Edwards Does Not Believe There Is A Global War On Terror'

Politico has a post up on "quite a big deal that most of us totally missed" in the 'Dhimmicrats' (my word not his) debate: John Edwards doesn't believe there's a "global war on terror," at least not in the simple-show-of-hands sense. This is something a lot of Democrats say privately -- and something mainstream pols everywhere else in the world say publicly -- but it contests a Bush administration premise in a way very few American politicians have been comfortable in the last five and a half years.More here ...

Jefferson Versus the Muslim Pirates - America's 'First' War On Terror

Two centuries ago, without congressional or public debate, a president whom we think of today as peaceable, Thomas Jefferson, launched America's first war on foreign soil, a war against terror. The enemy was Muslim; the war was waged unconventionally, with commandos, native troops, and encrypted intelligence, and launched from foreign bases under short-term alliances. For nearly two hundred years, the Barbary pirates had haunted the Mediterranean, enslaving tens of thousands of Europeans and extorting millions of dollars from their countries in a mercenary holy war against Christendom. - SourceChristopher Hitchens piece at Townhall today reminds me that not much has... ... more

While there is much about Rudy Giuliani that I have a problem with such as his positions on abortion, gun control, gay rights, and some of his family problems (though we all have our share), I strongly believe that we will have the luxury of continuing to debate on these issues if and only if our country is free from an onslaught at home by the radical Islamists and their supporters, many of whom are already living among us.

While it is highly appropriate that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops speak out against all forms of evil and that the Catholic Church should stand with any house of worship in condemning attacks of any kind, meeting with CAIR representatives is the wrong way to go about it.

Harry Reid, The 'Lost' Cause, And Telling Like It Is

An editorial from Harry Reid's own state notes that the Democratic strategy to use the ongoing violence in Iraq to their political advantage in the run-up to the 2008 elections requires some skill and nuance - skills Harry just doesn't have: The Democratic strategy is anything but straightforward. Sen. Reid and his colleagues know there is much political hay to be made by criticizing President Bush's planning and conduct of the post-war occupation.

Undeterred, liberal Democrats and gullible Republicans like the RINO Chuck Hagel, frothing at the mouth over political points with the left, are not only buying-in to the charade but are now making it a matter of national defense. Go figure! Stupid idea, you say! I didn't think Congress could be so dumb;... ... more

More On The PBS Shelving Of Film On Moderate Muslims

The producers of "Islam vs. Islamists" say their taxpayer-funded film has been shelved by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in "an ideological vendetta." In our post "PBS Dropped 'Islam vs. Islamists' On Political Grounds" yesterday, we noted that a planned documentary depicts the plight of moderate Muslims who are silenced by Islamic extremists, adding, "Now it appears to be PBS and CPB who are silencing them." The film is subtitled Voices From the Muslim Center, and attempts to answer the question: 'Where are the moderate Muslims?' The film's producer says the answer is,... ... more

Update On The Imus Catastrophe Endangering The Survival of Humanity And The Future Of Our Planet!

Move over "Global Warming"! The media has a new far more ominous and devastating development to follow! Gaging by all the uproar and the coverage on the news networks, you'd think that we must now be at Defcon-2; there is turmoil and angry mobs on every Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard across the nation, the President has had to call in on the already strained National Guard to calm the black rioters looting big screen TVs and other fancy electronics, in protest of course, from ransacked Best Buy and Circuit City stores, and setting fire to cars (after meticulously stripping... ... more

Former Hitler Youth Officer on Radical Islam

For the few among you out there that don't understand the use of the terms, "Islamofascism" or "Islamonazis," here's an interesting video in which a former Hitler Youth Officer talks about radical Islam compared to Nazism: The renowned British historian Lord Acton once said: "All utopias are murderous" One could perhaps change the famous saying to; "All radical, apocalyptic, universalist utopias are genocidal" The past hundred years or so has seen three mass movements aiming at utopias that could only be achieved by world conquest: National Socialism, Communism, and now radical Islamism. There are vast differences between them, to be... ... more

And So It Has Begun - Iran Announces 'Industrial Scale' Uranium Production

Iran has hit the 3,000 centrifuge mark, and the radical Islamist regime's race to develop nuclear weapons before the West awakens from its slumber has begun. Iran is now embarked on the final stage of being able to provide Islamic terrorists nuclear arms. According to DEBKAfile, the initial announcement came Monday, April 9, from Vice President Gholamreza Aghazadeh, head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organization, in Natanz.

Iran TV: Iran Demonstrates "Power and Independence" by Releasing UK Hostages

It can either hold them for ransom or release them and tell the world that this proves Iran is powerful, independent and peaceful! How much power did Iran need to capture those 15 UK soldiers? They seem to have pulled it off with a fleet of less than 10 speed boats, coupled with careful timing and the element of surprise. This was done in waters that their own expert, Pirouz Mojtahedzadeh, has acknowledged... ... more

Christians Fleeing Lebanon But They Need Not Worry: Pelosi Plans To 'Change Syria's Behavior'

The religion of peace and tolerance is once again failing to show either peace or tolerance in Lebanon, as radical Islam spreads its ugly evil presence throughout the region. In fact, the Shia and Sunnis can't even get along with themselves. And the situation in Lebanon has deteriorated so much that Christians are fleeing to escape the rise of radical Islam and growing fears that the trend will result in a Sunni-Shi'ite civil war, with minority Christians trapped in the middle. According to a poll to be published next month, nearly half of all Maronites, the largest Christian denomination in... ... more

Masked extremists protesting in the streets, chanting hate-America slogans, setting fire to an American flag hoisted upside down on a pole as an added insult of hatred and contempt, even defecating on it in public before setting it on fire, also setting the effigy of an American soldier on fire, while obliging bystanders enthusiastically cheered them on. But the alarming part of this particular... ... more

Left in the Middle East Has Reason to Support the USA

The reason is that the US is a powerful ally against Islamofascism. In a 31 March article in the Arab News Amir Taheri cites a number of examples in the region of this ideological trend. For example he quotes Iranian communist Reza Khosravi: Reza Khosravi, a veteran of Iran's Communist movement, cites history as justification for the left's rejection of "banal anti-Americanism." "During World War II all movements of the left supported an alliance with the Western democracies led by the United States because the common enemy was Fascism," he says. "Today, we are in a similar position. Progressive forces... ... more

Just as was lamented by the rabbi:We fire not on their fortress mosques, nor on their ships, nor during their holy days, nor in their holy cities, nor at their "holy men." We dare not humiliate.
