  • Light reading: The Ayatollah Khamenei pens book on how to outfox US, destroy Israel

    Hotair ^ | 08/03/2015 | Jazz Shaw
    Ed Morrissey announced earlier today that Americans are not wild about the proposed Iran nuclear deal and generally oppose it by a wide margin. Americans certainly are a skeptical and suspicious lot, aren’t they? And why would everyone have so many reservations about the Iranians when they’ve been such open and honest partners at the negotiating table? Take for example their Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. While John Kerry was busy wheeling and dealing with Iran’s henchmen, the holy man was busy getting ready to publish his latest book. And now it’s out, though you would be hard pressed...
  • At 14th Maccabi games, Jewish athletes proudly compete where Nazis once reigned

    Jerusalem Post ^ | 08/03/2015 | MICHELLE MALKA GROSSMAN
    The head of the British delegation says it was special for so many Jews to open the games in the Nazi-built stadium where Adolf Hitler made his speeches. The 14th European Maccabi Games are in full swing in Berlin as thousands of Jewish athletes and their supporters have come together for a bit of friendly competition in the German capital. This year's game is special, however, because it's one of the largest gatherings of Jews in Germany since World War II. It's even more historic because the games take place at the Nazi-built Olympiastadion, location of the 1936 Olympics, from...

    RJC Demands Obama stop demonizing Jews for opposing the Iran deal. Last week President Obama held a conference call with interested Americans, seeking to directly sell them on the nuclear deal the U.S. and its P5+1 partners made with Iran. Many Jews who listened on the call were taken aback by what they heard as coded anti-Semitic language being used by the President to attack those who are critical of the deal. On Friday, the Republican Jewish Coalition issued a statement demanding that Obama stop demonizing the critics of the Iran deal with code words for Jews. Matt Brooks, the...
  • WSJ Op-Ed: Iran Nuke Deal Reveals Obamas Blind Spot Towards Anti-Semitism

    08/03/2015 11:18:05 AM PDT · by SJackson · 16 replies
    President Barack Obama has a blind spot towards anti-Semitism that is evident in his administrations outreach to Iran, Ruth Wisse, a scholar of Yiddish and comparative literature, wrote in an op-ed (Google link) published Friday in The Wall Street Journal. Yet when it comes to the worlds most widespread and ideologically driven racism, President Obama seems to have a blind spot, initiating a nuclear deal with the fanatical anti-Jewish regime in Tehran, despite what he calls Irans bad behavior. The euphemism this time is his, not that of the perpetrators, and it camouflages their intentions even if they wont. Perhaps...

    The view that 2015 has not been a particularly good year for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has much to recommend it. Within Syria, the government has lost control over most of the province of Idlib, and was recently dislodged from Palmyra by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). The key cities of Aleppo in the north and Deraa in the south remain under threat; increased coordination among Syria's notoriously fractious armed rebel groups is an important factor in this regard, as is improved relations among their sponsors.

    Chuck Schumer is getting an earful from opponents of the Iran nuclear deal. More than 10,000 phone calls have flooded his office line the past two weeks, organized by a group looking to kill the deal. Another group has dropped seven figures on TV in New York City to pressure Schumer and other lawmakers to vote against the plan. The powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee has put its muscle behind an effort to lobby the New Yorker against it. And Dov Hikind, a state assemblyman from Brooklyn, was arrested for disorderly conduct while protesting the deal outside Schumers office....

    On Friday, we checked in on the Pentagons ongoing effort to recruit, vet, and train ambitious "freedom fighters" to join the battle against ISIS in Syria. It goes without saying that covert US efforts to aid the multifarious groups vying for control of the country have met with disastrous consequences so far, but if theres anything Washington is particularly adept at, its making bad foreign policy outcomes worse, which is why we werent at all surprised to learn that the commander of the Pentagon's new Syrian "force" was captured, along with his deputy, by al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra last week near...

    Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a speech last month repeated his periodic claim of a U.S. hand behind the creation of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the posted text alluded to a year-old conspiracy theory that Hillary Clinton had admitted as much in her memoir. Some Americans have confessed in their own memoirs [including Hillary Clintons memoirs] that they have played a role in creating, developing and establishing DAESH and today too, they are supporting them, Khamenei told an Eid al-Fitr (end of Ramadan) gathering of government officials and Islamic ambassadors on July 18,...

    The more that the American people get a chance to look at the nuclear deal with Iran, the less they like it. Prior to the announcement of a deal (and the details of its commitments), public opinion favored a deal while remaining skeptical that it would stop Iran from developing nuclear weapons. A week after the deal, a Pew poll showed a plurality opposed, 38/48; two weeks out, a CNN poll showed a majority opposed at 44/52.A new Quinnipiac poll shows a stronger majority opposed, but the worst aspect for the Obama administration is the collapse in support.

    Turkeys recent intervention aims to prevent the emergence of a de facto Kurdish sovereignty stretching along its southeastern border The latest events in northern Syria constitute a bold move by the Turkish leadership to deal with a most pressing problem, from their point of view. That problem is not the continued existence of the Assad regime, far to the south. President Recep Tayyip Erdogan would certainly like to see the end of this regime. But its continued truncated existence between Damascus and the coast and in isolated spots elsewhere does not constitute an immediate danger for the Turkish leader. (snip)...

He is determined to fight US President Barack Obama on his own political turf, siding with the Republicans, and to be perceived in Israel as the ultimate defender of the Jewish people. To him, this is about history, or rather about history books.Netanyahu has engaged the most effective lobby in Congress the American Israel Public...

    The American Jewish community is so split over the Iranian nuclear deal that meetings of some Jewish organizations dealing with other Jewish communal issues are being cancelled because people dont want to argue about the accord, Greg Rosenbaum, the chairman of the National Jewish Democratic Council, said Sunday. Rosenbaum, speaking to a delegation of Israeli diplomatic journalists visiting the US, said that this is an issue that is threatening to tear apart the American Jewish community. We have passed the point of civil discussion, and now are almost at fratricide over this issue, he said. I am not sure we...

    Turkey has killed 260 Kurdish militants in a week-long air offensive on targets in northern Iraq, official media claimed Saturday, as regional Iraqi authorities said it was time the rebels pulled out with concerns growing over civilian casualties. Ankara has launched a two-pronged "anti-terror" offensive against Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists in Syria and Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) militants based in northern Iraq after a wave of attacks inside Turkey. But so far the bombardments have focused far more on the Kurdish rebels and a report by the official Anatolia news agency of 260 alleged PKK militants killed was the first...

The email from Samuel Berger advised Clinton on how to navigate the waters with Netanyahu and Palestinian leader Abu Mazen. Going forward, if Bibi continues to be the obstacle, you will need to find the ground from which you can make his politics uneasy, the September 22 email said. I think you can do that even with current...

And while Iran has received the support of some of its Arab friends in this endeavour, Israel home to the Middle Easts only nuclear weapons programme has been the holdout.

One reason why these misconception exist is that many files from US government sources relating to this time period, and in particular to this event, remain classified or are otherwise inaccessible (most CIA documents regarding the events have allegedly been destroyed).

    Obama has decided that two wildly unpopular policies, one foreign and one domestic, will be the final legacy of his wildly unpopular administration. The domestic policy is gun control. The foreign policy is Iranian nukes. While Americans will be disarmed, Iran will be getting ready for its ballistic missiles. Ramming through wildly unpopular policies is what this administration does best. More than anything else, this administration will be remembered for the mix of bullying, smears, pop culture distractions, outright lies, bureaucratic sabotage and blatant lawbreaking with which it achieved its policy goals.

To Israel, which has never supported democracy anywhere in the Middle East except Israel, the presence of a brutal military dictatorship bent on the extermination of Islamism is not only tolerable but desirable, Kagan wrote. But In Egypt, U.S. interests and Israels perceptions of its own interests sharply diverge. If one believes that any hope for moderation...

Reaction was swift. Democrats predictably attacked it, but so did some of his GOP competition, seeking any opportunity to damage a rival....
