    Monday, September 01, 2014 The Deadly Israeli House Strikes Again Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog There are few weapons as deadly as the Israeli house. When its brick and mortar are combined together, the house, whether it is one of those modest one story hilltop affairs or a five floor apartment building complete with hot and cold running water, becomes far more dangerous than anything green and glowing that comes out of the Iranian centrifuges. Forget the cluster bomb and the mine, the poison gas shell and even tailored viruses. Iran can keep its nuclear...

    Sunday, August 31, 2014 The Imaginary Non-Interventionist Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Ever since Hillary broke with Barack over the virtues of doing stupid stuff, the editorial columnists have been pretending that she has some new and exciting foreign policy. She doesn't. The left has been denouncing her as an interventionist, the second coming of George W. Bush. They just can't explain how Hillary is any more of an interventionist than her old boss who bombed Libya, is bombing Iraq and wanted to bomb Syria. Other places he's bombing include Yemen and Pakistan. And all that...

THE VERDICT IS IN In August 2012, James Foley retweeted a link to a CNN story asking “Right-wing extremist terrorism as deadly a threat as al Qaeda?” The article concluded that indeed it was. Three months later, Foley had been kidnapped. Two years later, on another August, a former branch of Al Qaeda chopped off his head. A Beheading Ends All Illusions...

    Wednesday, August 27, 2014 Ferguson's Media Problem Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog If there’s a problem in America or anywhere in the world, inflicting the media on it can only make it worse. By some accounts there are more reporters in Ferguson than there are protesters. That may be why the protesters ran for cover behind the media after throwing bottles of urine at the police. There are so many reporters in Ferguson that the rioters and looters can use them as human shields. You just wouldn’t know it because they don’t take pictures of each...

    James Foley was one of a new breed of activists calling themselves journalists. He didn’t travel to report on a story, but to promote an agenda. And the agenda was obvious from his Twitter feed. [snip] Foley came to Syria to support the Sunni Islamist rebels against the Syrian government. He cheered on the Sunni Muslim terrorists fighting to ethnically cleanse the Christians of Aleppo. In the conflict between Israel and Hamas, his tweets and retweets were chock full of pro-terrorist propaganda. link

    Ferguson happens a few times every month. More often in the summer when tempers are hot and crowds of bored men and women fill the streets looking for something to do. Teenagers ransack stores. Small cities stretch their budgets in a bad economy to put as many cops as they can on the street. And then somewhere between the open fire hydrants, the stores that do most of their business in EBT cards and lottery tickets, the check cashing places and furniture rental outlets, something happens. And it happens a lot more often than you think. A crowd gathers. Fists...

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Obama’s Iraq policy in 2014 is his 2007 policy all over again. The minimal attacks on Al Qaeda are paired with the expectation that Iraqis will unite to achieve a political solution.But what if they don’t?In 2007, Obama had claimed that American withdrawals would pressure Iraqis into a political solution. He was wrong. The withdrawals not only failed to move Iraq toward a political solution, but they gave Maliki and his Iranian allies the power they needed to marginalize the Kurds and the Sunnis.Obama went on insisting that the only...

    You can tell how bad a crisis is based on the staged photos that Obama’s official propaganda photog deploys for action.On August 2nd, the situation was only mildly severe, so Pete Souza gave us this photo of Obama leaning back in the White House while chatting with Susan Rice and an NSA guy. But then major newspapers (the kind his donors read) started talking about genocide in Iraq and Obama’s inaction.

Terrorists however use tactics to take over mental territory. A suicide bomber is not out to take over a particular...

    Friday, July 11, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - Romney Don't Run Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog via American Digest MYTHS AND FACTS Israel is fighting an enemy that insists on having all the advantages of a state and statelessness with none of the disadvantages. The PLO/Hamas unity government is a state when it wants something from the United Nations or the United States, but it’s not a state when it comes to taking responsibility. The Muslims who live in Gaza and the West Bank are considered citizens when it comes to having political rights, but not...

    Thursday, July 10, 2014 A Bloody Endless Peace Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog "War is peace," entered our cultural vocabulary some sixty-four years ago. Around the same time that Orwell's masterpiece was being printed up, an armistice was being negotiated between Israel and the Arab invading armies. That armistice began the long peaceful war or the warring peace. The entire charade did not properly enter the realm of the Orwellian until the peace process began. The peace process between Israel and the terrorist militias funded by the countries of those invading armies has gone on for...

    Monday, July 07, 2014 Israel's Moloch Syndrome Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog When religion goes, other religions take its place. They mimic the forms and formalities of it without the substance. They are faiths without any gods, but ourselves, and without any devils, but ourselves. Confronted with the religious terror of Islam, the post-religious faiths of the free world act out a godless religious drama in which they take turns playing all the old religious roles without the religion. The most pernicious of these is the martyr to the morally superior high ground of humanism. Faced...

    ISIS marching through Iraq has smashed the media’s taboo against criticizing Obama’s foreign policy. Substantive discussions are taking place about why his foreign policy is such a miserable failure. And they mostly miss the point. Liberal journalists still proceed from the fallacy that there was a foreign policy debate between neo-conservative interventionists and liberal non-interventionists. These are a series of digested Bush era talking points that have no relationship to reality since Bush’s foreign policy on Iraq carried over from Bill Clinton. It’s why Hillary gets so uncomfortable when she has to discuss her vote on Iraq. The liberals weren’t...

    Sunday, July 06, 2014 Co-Dependency Day for Post-America Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The barges were towed along the Hudson. Streets were blocked off, police officers collecting overtime were assembled as the crowds trickled in early to grab prime viewing positions for the fireworks display in a celebration of freedom under heavy guard by opponents of freedom. They were not celebrating the freedoms of the Declaration or the Constitution, but the freedom to get free things. Nancy Pelosi explained that the ObamaCare mandate was a penalty on “Free Riders”. Down by the Hudson River, British warships...

    Friday, July 04, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - This is what Revolution Looks Like Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog THIS IS WHAT REVOLUTION LOOKS LIKE A crowd of 200 to 300 people in downtown Murrieta surrounded three Homeland Security buses carrying illegal alien detainees waving large American flags and holding signs that opposed higher taxes and “new illegals” — waited in the hot sun all day for the three charter buses to arrive. Waving Americans flags and protest signs, the crowd refused to give way when the buses arrived with some 140 detainees from Texas, which...

    As the first African-American Solicitor General, Thurgood Marshall told a black fraternity, “Neither race nor color nor frustration is an excuse for either lawlessness or anarchy.”Some five decades later, lawlessness and anarchy have descended on America and on Washington D.C. under the banner of color and frustration. This is no laissez-faire lawlessness, but anarchy toward accountability. Like the rock throwers and Molotov cocktail throwers that Marshall was denouncing, Obama and his people have made their own law out of force while rejecting the rule of law.Through force they have become the law while disregarding the law. There is a term...

    Thursday, July 03, 2014 Remember Your Right to Happiness Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Revolutions are not unique. Some countries have revolutions all the time until revolution becomes their national sport. In banana republics the overthrow of one dictator to make way for another gives everyone a day off from work. These revolutions, no matter how they are cloaked in the familiar rhetoric of liberty, are nothing more than tyranny by other means. What made the American Revolution unique was that its cause was not the mere transfer of power from one ruler to another or...

    Wednesday, July 02, 2014 It’s Not the Occupation, It’s Islam Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The bodies of three murdered Israeli teenagers, 16-year-old Naftali who liked to play basketball, 16-year-old Gilad who had just finished a scuba diving course and 19-year-old Eyal with his guitar, will be met by the same ghastly parade of pallbearers who accompany every victim of terrorism. The reporters will scribble down something about “settlements” and the “Cycle of Violence”. The diplomats will urge restraint and remind everyone that the only solution can be found through negotiations with the terrorists. And the...

    Obama’s illegal DREAM amnesty, which has already cost the life of one young boy, may be America’s next public health crisis. It is clear that a public health crisis on a grand scale is occurring, and that the Centers for Disease Control needs to be directly involved. When these immigrants leave the camps and get on buses and trains, they spread disease to other states.Already, drug-resistant tuberculosis is spreading in Texas, with several counties having twice the state average number of cases. Dengue Fever, a viral illness spread by mosquitoes which causes marked bone and muscle pain and fatigue...

    Monday, June 30, 2014 The Curse of Cain Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog After Cain killed his brother, the Lord told him, "A fugitive and a wanderer shalt thou be in the earth." But the natural order has been reversed, instead the Abels, if they survive, become homeless wanderers and the Cains build their Caliphates on the tombs of their victims. "Cursed shall you be from the earth," the Lord said, and so it has been.  The earth under their feet may be cursed, it yields nothing but sand and thistles, but they are nomads, forgetting...

    Obama’s call for $500 million to arm and train Syrian Jihadist fighters couldn’t have possibly come at a more inappropriate time as Al Qaeda in Iraq menaces both countries. It wasn’t the Iraq War that made the Al Qaeda affiliate so dangerous. In 2008 it specialized in suicide bombings. It wasn’t marching on Baghdad with an army behind it.The Arab Spring destabilized the region while money, weapons and recruits poured into Libya and Syria. Obama’s regime change war in Libya led not only to the takeover of entire Libyan cities by Al Qaeda, culminating in the murder of four Americans...
