  • Meanwhile, Obama Promotes Death-To-U.S.-Troops Cleric

    Quislings: At the same time our president springs dangerous terrorists from prison, he has quietly promoted an Islamic cleric who has issued fatwas calling for the death of U.S. troops with "child bombs." The State Department last week had to apologize for singing the praises of the creep — Sheik Abdallah Bin Bayyah — in a Tweeted message promoting his Muslim Brotherhood organization. But officials there are only sorry they got caught. The same bunch last year issued a visa for the radical cleric so he could visit, of all places, the White House. That's right, the administration knew full...

Their 29-minute film has been watched by more than 100 million people and become the fastest spreading video ever.

    Hamas Schools Teaching Children How to Kill Israelis–with Real Guns Evelyn Gordon Having complained frequently about the media’s failure to report anything that might detract from their preferred narrative of Israel-as-villain, I’m delighted to discover that one British paper is bucking this trend. The Telegraph ran two articles this week describing the miserable situation in Hamas-run Gaza. And as reporter Phoebe Greenwood makes clear, the culprit isn’t Israel, but the elected Hamas government. The first describes how Hamas has introduced military training into the curriculum of Gaza high schools–after having previously excised sports from said curriculum on the grounds that...

"When a little boy is kidnapped, turned into a child soldier, forced to kill or be killed -- that's slavery," Obama said in a speech at the Clinton Global Initiative. "It is barbaric, and it is evil, and it has no place in a civilized world. Now, as a nation, we've long rejected such cruelty."

Reports said he was paid $3,000 per murder and that he tortured his victims before killing them. He often cuts his victim's throat, leaving the head attached by just a thread.

    It's been confirmed: "The two devices found on U.S.-bound cargo planes were viable explosives that could have destroyed the aircraft if detonated." One of the originating sources of yesterday's Islamic attack/massive dry run is Yemen. Obama has sanctioned child soldiers in Yemen, doubled aid to Yemen and released key leaders of AQAP from GITMO, now waging war from Yemen. While Obama spends countless hours forcing the Jews to ethnically cleanse their capital of its Jews and give up the precious land of their tiny state, he is doubling aid to Yemen -- he handles jihadist countries much differently.

Our source in Caracas is a little bit skeptical of it, because he hasn’t seen any of this stuff duplicated around Venezuela, and right now he wonders if it could be contrived. In Mexico, anti-Chavez sentiment is high, even in the press. Still, Cronica is a reliable news source. If it’s not a...

    As long as children continue to be coerced into militias -- as they are by the thousands in Colombia, Sudan and dozens of other countries -- peace talks in those countries to settle armed conflicts are unlikely, assert two Cornell University researchers. "The endless supply of adolescent soldiers is an unfortunate source of energy for warfare and, we think, a poorly understood obstacle to peace-making in many countries," said Charles Geisler, professor of development sociology at Cornell. "Orgies of bloodshed and human displacement could be avoided if children were not sacrificed for such causes," added Geisler, who with Niousha Roshani,...

Secretary-General Kofi Annan (news - web sites) said on Wednesday. The U.N. Security Council should hit the responsible individuals with targeted measures such as travel limits, arms embargoes, a cutoff of military aid or restrictions on their finances, Annan said in a new report on child soldiers. Certain abuses should be given priority attention, including killing or maiming children, recruiting or using them as soldiers, attacking schools or hospitals, rape and...

    An estimated 11,000 Colombian children are celebrating Christmas among the country's guerrilla forces, says a report by Human Rights Watch. Girls and boys as young as 12 are forced to conduct executions, engage in combat operations, assemble anti-personnel mines or become concubines of middle-aged commanders in what is one of the most tragic side dramas of South America's longest-running civil conflict. The two-year study based on interviews with more than 100 minors who have surrendered to authorities or been captured by Colombia's security services concludes that one out of every four guerrilla fighters is under the age of 18.

The report was released yesterday with great fanfare.
