    Thursday, July 31, 2014 Obama's Gaza Game Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog While Israelis are fighting and dying, families huddling in bomb shelters and soldiers going off to face death, the men and women in suits and power suits moving through the great halls of diplomacy are using them as pawns in a larger game. During the Cold War, Israel was a pawn in a larger struggle between the US and the USSR. Now it is back to being a counter in a larger game. Israel’s function within the great halls of diplomacy was always as...

The university history professor with an office full of fake Indian jewelery and a view of the parking lot will lecture on the military colonies of the Roman period, always careful to emphasize their eventual fate. And he may even get up to the 16th century. But he'll stay away from the present. But...

Kto-Kovo or Who-Whom reduced all interactions to warfare. The Bolsheviks ushered in the end of rules, decency or honor. All that mattered was who would be able to destroy whom. It didn’t matter whether you had justice on your side, but what you would do about it. Obama and Putin have the same message...

    Wednesday, July 23, 2014 Terrorism is a Tactic and It Must Be Defeated Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog There are two dimensions to fighting a War on Terror. One is fighting terrorists and the other is fighting terrorism. In conventional warfare there isn't that much of a difference between fighting men and their tactics. There is a wider space between fighting terrorists and their tactics. Conventional armies use tactics to defeat enemy forces and seize territory. Terrorists however use tactics to take over mental territory. A suicide bomber is not out to take over a particular...

The answer is that the world forced Israel to let them in. In the early 90s, Nissim Toledano, a border police sergeant, was kidnapped by terrorists on the way to work. After an extended search, he was found dead in a roadside ditch. In response to that attack and numerous other atrocities committed by...

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...

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...

    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.

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...

Taking the job was a poor idea since crime rates had dropped so low that they were bound to rebound, especially under a pro-criminal mayor like De Blasio. All that Bratton had done is set himself up to take the blame and join the ranks of failed NYPD commissioners like Lee Brown who did what a liberal mayor wanted instead of fighting crime. So now it’s time to pander to Islam.

    Saturday, June 07, 2014 The Long March Through the Republican Party Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog The Tea Party's epitaph has been written. A confident Republican establishment is now prepared to possibly take the Senate in 2014 and then lose it again in 2016 to another wave of historical change. In its defense the establishment, a motley collection of men paid by special interest groups whose future involves lucrative lobbying and even more lucrative consulting for the midterm election of 2018 where they will run on opposition to HillaryCare, can point to all the stupid and...

    Friday, June 06, 2014 Friday Afternoon Roundup - True Lies Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog TRAVEL DIARY OF AN AMERICAN PATRIOT Here’s John Kerry having a good time with Nabih Berri, the head of the Amal Movement, and speaker of the Hezbollah dominated Lebanese parliament. What better way to follow up the Taliban deal than to meet with another terrorist hijacker. Nabih Berri, the French-educated lawyer who is head of the Amal movement and the leading spokesman for Lebanon`s 1 million Shiites, was chief negotiator for the hijackers. It was on his order that the remaining...

    Tuesday, June 03, 2014 Muslimsplaining Islamic Terrorism Away Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog As bloody bodies and smoke rise into the air after a cry of Allahu Akbar and a bomb detonation, each Muslim terrorist attack is followed by "Muslimsplaining" why the latest act of Islamic violence had nothing to do with Islam. Sometimes the Muslimsplainers are Muslims. Often they aren't even Muslims. When Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group aligned with Al Qaeda, kidnapped Nigerian girls, the media's Muslimsplainers sprang into action to explain why it had nothing to do with Islam. Time featured "5...

    Monday, June 02, 2014 The Post-Achievement Politics of Obama and Hillary Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Occasionally someone pranks an unwitting MSNBC panelist or a bunch of teenagers by asking them to name a single Hillary accomplishment. Even though Hillary has piled up more awards than Charles de Gaulle, nothing comes to mind. An editorial in the Chicago Tribune has the writer asking a group of Chicago leaders the same question about Obama's foreign policy. Silence follows. Obama and Hillary don't just suffer from a shortage of accomplishments. They're also burdened with a surplus of failures....

    Sunday, June 01, 2014 Twilight of the Family Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog For most of human history the family was the basic social unit of the species. Family was a way of passing down genes, beliefs and wealth. It was a retirement plan that you paid into by keeping your children alive long enough for them to grow up and support you. It allowed the individual to pass on his ideas to people who would care about them because they were part of their heritage. Family was a collective endeavor, small enough to reflect the...

Sorry, we’re Muslim. And as Islamic Supremacists, we’re obsessed with Islamizing Jerusalem and using it for the capital of our Thousand Year Caliphate under the Pakistani Army.Otherwise we would be happy to coexist with you. Really. Palestinian-founded and led sharia law movement Hizb Al-Tahrir, the Party of Liberation, hosted thousands of Muslims for Friday prayers last week atop the Temple Mount, at the Al-Aqsa Mosque, where...

    Thursday, May 29, 2014 The "You Didn't Do That" Society Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog First Elliot Rodger murdered his three roommates with a knife, hammer and machete. Then he shot eight people, three of them fatally, and tried to run over several others in his car. After the bodies were taken away, everyone on television agreed that it was the fault of the guns. Rodger had been in therapy since he was eight and was seeing therapists every day in high school. He had a history of making violent threats and the police had already...

    Wednesday, May 28, 2014 Evil is the Motive of Evil Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Elliot Rodger is only the latest mass murderer whose creepy videos and massive manifesto will be pored over for clues to his state of mind. Rodger is in good company with killers like Osama bin Laden, Anders Behring Breivik and Christopher Dorner who exploited their murderous celebrity by running their mouths and fingers while unloading their deep thoughts on everything. Osama bin Laden suggested everyone read Jimmy Carter's Palestine and Walt and Mearsheimer's The Israel Lobby. Christopher Dorner regretted missing out...

    Sunday, May 25, 2014 Our Oppressed Oppressors Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog Some counties have dictators, tyrants and kings. America has victims in high office. Victims with vast powers and great wealth who despite all that are oppressed by the people they rule. They are the oppressed oppressors. Never has a ruling class been as oppressed as ours by an ignorant rabble that rudely abuses the army of benevolent public servants who see to their welfare in exchange for nothing except a feeling of moral satisfaction and a six-figure salary. Not to mention unlimited power. "They...

    Saturday, May 24, 2014 Will a Rogue General Undo Obama's Regime Change in Libya? Posted by Daniel Greenfield @ the Sultan Knish blog It didn't take Egypt very long to revert back to a military oligarchy with elections. That oligarchy wasn't brought back by an armed coup in the dead of night, but by popular protests. The Arab Spring was trumpeted by liberals as a new era in the history of the Middle East. But the Middle East is better at undoing history than the media is at writing it. In Egypt, General Abdel Fattah el-Sisi brushed away the effects...

    The University of South Carolina is dumping its Gender Studies center which became notorious for holding an event titled “How to Be a Lesbian in 10 Days or Less” and is going to teach the US Constitution instead.The horror. The humanity. The heterocisgenderpatriarchal privilege. The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (CWGS) at the University of South Carolina Upstate (USCU) will close on July 1 and the funding, previously allocated for CWGS, will be used to teach the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Federalist Papers.The South Carolina House of Representatives wanted further cuts at both USCU and the College...

That same year 499 Americans were killed in Afghanistan. Obama Lost the War on Al Qaeda, While...
