    At the Shadow Party’s "Take Back America" conference in Washington on June 3, 2004, following a glowing introduction from Hillary Clinton, George Soros stepped to the podium to explain to the audience that when it came to electoral politics in the USA, he was a newcomer. Only his outrage over Bush’s invasion of Iraq had stirred him to get involved in the partisan struggle. "[I]t is the first time that I feel that I need to stand up and do something, and become really engaged in the electoral process in this country," Soros said.[1] This was far from the truth,...

    Economics Minister and Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett fired back at US Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday, after the latter claimed Israel's failures to forge a peace deal with the intransigent Palestinian Authority (PA) - not the US's failures in the Middle East - are to blame for the rise of Islamic State (ISIS). "Even when a British Muslim beheads a British Christian, there will always be those who blame the Jews," Bennett stated. "We don't justify terror; we fight terror," he added. "The Israeli-Palestinian conflict statement encourages ISIS, and is a boost to terrorism worldwide." Bennett also...

    Countries from around the world have pledged $5.4 billion to help rebuild the war-torn Gaza Strip, the Palestinian enclave along the Mediterranean. Norwegian Foreign Minister Boerge Brende announced the total Sunday at the close of a 30-nation donor conference in Cairo. Earlier, Brende had said there were many legitimate questions about “why donor countries should once again pick up the bill for rebuilding what warring parties have torn down” at a time when there was no agreement on a lasting cease-fire or sound political framework.

    US Secretary of State John Kerry continues to baffle observers by insisting that "global warming is, by far, the greatest threat mankind faces in the 21st century." "The reason should be obvious from the term 'global' warming," Kerry said. "This means that it affects everyone. This has to put it ahead of dangers that afflict necessarily narrower categories of victims. The beheading of innocent children by ISIS in Iraq, for example, only affects thousands of people." "The threat to wipe Israel off the map and exterminate the Jews, at worst, would entail the deaths of only a few million," Kerry...

Kerry was of course echoing the analysis of that noted theologian, Barack Obama, who two weeks ago declared that ISIS is "not Islamic." In fairness, Presidents George W. Bush and Clinton have expressed similar sentiments. For a thorough debunking of the ISIS Islam-deniers, see here. View the video here.

    John Kerry, like Obama, went out of his way to defend Islam by saying that ISIS does not represent Islam: So I wouldnÂ’t compound the crime by calling them a state whatsoeverÂ… TheyÂ’re the enemy of Islam. ThatÂ’s what they are, and as the 21 clerics yesterday said in Saudi Arabia, they are in fact the order of Satan. Â…ThereÂ’s nothing in Islam that condones or suggests people should go out and rape women and sell off young girls or give them as gifts to jihadists and cut peopleÂ’s heads off and tie peopleÂ’s hands behind their backs and put...

    John Kerry was speaking about ISIS. And he’s wrong. As usual. 1. Mohammed practiced slavery 2. The Islamic campaigns were carried out for loot. Including the human kind. Many of Mohammed’s first Muslims were out for slaves. Including female slaves. 3. Mohammed enslaved and raped women These are all facts that are not seriously in dispute. ... Mohammed’s armies looted and killed the men and enslaved the women. It’s elementary Islamic history. The only thing Kerry got right is that there’s nothing in the Koran about shooting the men. Guns didn’t exist then. That’s why they chopped off their heads...

    Retired Marine Gen. John Allen has been selected to coordinate the international effort against the Islamic State militant group, Secretary of State John Kerry announced Saturday. "General Allen is a patriot and a remarkable leader," Kerry said in a statement issued late Saturday. "His extraordinary career in the military speaks for itself." Allen's official title is Special Presidential Envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL. ISIL is another name for the Islamic State, which is also known as ISIS. Allen, who has been serving as a security adviser to Secretary of State John Kerry, is expected to work with...
  • Obama Administration A Mess After ISIS War Declaration

    There’s not much about the Obama administration that earns the confidence of the American public anymore. Obamacare has destroyed what was left of the good will the general public had for Obama. Discovering that you could not keep your doctor and that your insurance rates and deductibles would increase substantially created an environment wherein the President’s word was no longer trustworthy. Obama’s polls are largely in the lower 40’s as a result. These days the President is beating the war drum against ISIS and while the public wants to go after the terrorists they don’t completely trust this administration to...

    Q. When is a war not a war?A. When it is a “fairly significant counter-terrorist operation” (according to Jean Carré) rather than a “war per se” (according to Josh Earnest); when our State Department rejects the “notion” of us engaging in a “war” on terrorism” (according to Marie Harf) and when the Commander in Chief says that the group calling itself the “Islamic State” is neither Islamic…nor a state; ipso fatso, we can’t declare war on it. And while we’re at it, perhaps someone can get to the bottom of this mystery too: who forgot to order the White House...

    U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Thursday would not say the United States is at war with ISIS, telling CNN in an interview that the administration's strategy includes "many different things that one doesn't think of normally in context of war." "What we are doing is engaging in a very significant counter-terrorism operation," Kerry told CNN's Elise Labott in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. "It's going to go on for some period of time. If somebody wants to think about it as being a war with ISIL, they can do so, but the fact is it's a major counterterrorism operation that...

    ANKARA: Turkey will refuse to allow a US-led coalition to attack jihadists in neighbouring Iraq and Syria from its air bases, nor will it take part in combat operations against militants, a government official told AFP Thursday. " Turkey will not be involved in any armed operation but will entirely concentrate on humanitarian operations," the official said on condition of anonymity. The decision echoes the country's refusal to allow the US to station 60,000 troops in Turkey in 2003 to invade Iraq from the north, which triggered a crisis between the two allies. Ankara then also refused Washington permission to...
