  • Democrats fold, of course, on Iran sanctions

    01/27/2015 12:01:39 PM PST · by Dave346 · 15 replies
    Washington Post ^ | January 27 at 1:22 PM | Jennifer Rubin
    Unless there is any doubt, the vast majority of Democrats value partisan support for a failed president over support for our own national security and for that of Israel. Hence, they want to delay once again a vote on the Menendez-Kirk bill imposing sanctions on Iran unless it agrees to an acceptable final deal. The bill was introduced more than a year ago. The timing just isn’t right, you see. Will it ever be? A letter by Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) signed onto by Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Gary Peters (D-Mich.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.), Ben Cardin (D-Md.),...

    In response to recent reported Israeli strike in Syria that killed Iranian officials, Mashregh website lists sons of current and former Israeli prime ministers as potential targets for retaliation, including Yair and Avner Netanyahu. Is Iran targeting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's sons for assassination? According to Iranian news website Mashregh, Iran could seek revenge for the recent killing of several Iranian military figures in a strike attributed to Israel, and the prime minister's sons are among the potential targets. On Jan. 18, an airstrike on the Syrian side of the border in the Golan Heights killed several high-ranking Hezbollah and...

    A Swedish reporter who walked around the southern Swedish city of Malmo while wearing a kippah to test attitudes toward Jews was hit once and cursed at by passersby before he fled for fear of serious violence. Sveriges Television on Wednesday aired secretly recorded footage from Petter Ljunggren’s walk through Malmo, which documented some of the incidents that occurred within the space a few hours. In one scene, Ljunggren — who, in addition to wearing a kippah was also wearing Star of David pendant — was filmed sitting at a café in central Malmo reading a newspaper, as several passersby...

    Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad on Sunday accused the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) of conspiring with the Al-Qaeda terrorist group. “It’s very clear. Because whenever we make advances in some place, they attack in order to undermine the army. It’s very clear,” Assad told the American Foreign Affairs magazine in excerpts of an interview that will be published in full on Monday. “That’s why some in Syria joke, how can you say that Al-Qaeda doesn’t have an air force? They have the Israeli air force,” he added.

    Thou shall not cross Dear Leader. With their gutter sniping failing to stop Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned March speech before Congress, White House aides are unloading their full arsenal of bile. “He spat in our face publicly, and that’s no way to behave,” one Obama aide told an Israeli newspaper. “Netanyahu ought to remember that President Obama has a year and a half left to his presidency, and that there will be a price.” It is pointless to say petty threats do not become the Oval Office. Trying to instruct this White House on manners recalls what Mark Twain...

    Obama: Is he irrelevant, or an advocate for Iran-backed terror? Even as President Obama gave his State of the Union address to the joint chambers of Congress Tuesday night, another domino was falling in Iran’s line-up of nation-state influence. Yemen’s leadership was on the brink of capitulation just as Obama was gloating over a failed foreign policy as being effective. Others have already pointed out how facts of Yemen and Somalia’s chaos contradict the president’s previous glorying in those states as testaments of his policy’s success. His idea as to what qualifies as success appear to deviate from that of...

"Worst of all, the Iranians don't believe it."

"If we're the reason -- through our Congress -- that in effect gives Iran and others the excuse not to continue the negotiations, that would be, in my view, a very serious strategic error," Clinton said during an appearance in Winnipeg sponsored by the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce.

    Michel Houellebecq’s new novel, “Soumission”, tells the story of a French university professor, Francois, a secularized, single man who indulges in sexual pleasures and finds comfort in Islam. It is the symbol of a decaying Europe. In 1979, another great French writer, Emil Cioran, wrote that European civilization was going to be defeated and that its decline was due to a refined inactivity, a sublime lifestyle. Cioran saw the day the church of Notre Dame de Paris would become a mosque. What is more despicable is in fact the old continent’s moral inertia. Only the naive, or the lying, can...

The crime-infested districts, which the French Interior Ministry has designated as Priority Security Zones (zones de sécurité prioritaires, or ZSP), include heavily Muslim parts of Paris, Marseilles, Strasbourg, Lille and Amiens, where Muslim youths recently went on a two-day arson rampage that caused extensive property damage and injured more than a dozen police officers.

French President Hollande said the murderous Paris terror attacks were “an insult to Islam.” His Prime Minister, Manuel Valls, said, “We are at war with terrorism and radical Islam.” Days later he said France was at war with “terrorism, jihadism and radicalism.” Then, in the same speech he said, “France is not at war against Islam and Muslims,” before announcing a series of measures...

    Full size image below. It is not necessary for me to recount for you the events in Paris, the controversy that led up to them, or the consequences in the last week. This you already know. The whole world knows. It is enough to say that, in the name of Islam, terrorists murdered. In response to satire, terrorists, attacked. In the presence of free speech, terror tried to silence. As the millions marching in Paris and other cities around the world yesterday attest, the free nations of this earth are not prepared to give up their freedom. Not just yet.

    The Obama administration is stepping up its push to stave off a bipartisan congressional effort to enact new economic sanctions on Iran as the United States tries to secure a permanent deal to wind down the country’s nuclear program. At a University of Louisville event alongside new Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), whose chamber is expected to pursue new sanctions in the coming weeks, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power argued that new congressional sanctions will upset ongoing negotiations with Iran and turn off a multilateral international coalition that has worked together to isolate Iran politically and...

    Arrest Jihad’s preachers and teachers today or kill four terrorists tomorrow… take your pick but decide quickly In the days after the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris and the thrilling response of the French people to the attempt to intimidate them, any number of media commentators have talked about ‘root causes’ of terrorism. They mention that Westerners have to reach out to tame the ‘angry young men’ who are the agents of the Jihad’s terrorism. No we don’t. Well, yes we should reach out to address the ‘root causes’ of terrorism and the hand we reach out should at least...

    Not defining the jihadist enemy in terms that are clearly based on their own self-professed Koran-based ideology is political correctness gone mad The jihadists are succeeding in their campaign to squelch freedom of expression in the West. Many mainstream media outlets have been too afraid to display the offensive images that were said to have triggered the deadly jihadist attack on the headquarters of the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7, 2015. Some media have called into question the judgment of the Charlie Hebdo editors in publishing their offensive cartoons in the first place. Others have...

    The U.S.A. was M.I.A. in Paris Barack Obama came out of the weeds today showing who and what he really is—and did it on his own. While millions out on the street were chanting “Je suis Charlie”, came only lip service from the White House with the chant, “Je suis Obama”. By ignoring the anti-terrorism rally in France—the largest in its entire history—Obama is no longer only America’s problem any more. He’s now the one Western leader who came out of the weeds to prove to the world that he doesn’t give a rodent’s rear about the horrific carnage of...

    The Hague (AFP) - A prominent Dutch cartoonist at Charlie Hebdo heaped scorn on the French satirical weekly's "new friends" since the massacre at its Paris offices on Wednesday. "We have a lot of new friends, like the pope, Queen Elizabeth and (Russian President Vladimir) Putin. It really makes me laugh," Bernard Holtrop, whose pen name is Willem, told the Dutch centre-left daily Volkskrant in an interview published Saturday. France's far-right National Front leader "Marine Le Pen is delighted when the Islamists start shooting all over the place," said Willem, 73, a longtime Paris resident who also draws for the...

    (CNN)French law enforcement officers have been told to erase their social media presence and to carry their weapons at all times because terror sleeper cells have been activated over the last 24 hours in the country, a French police source who attended a briefing Saturday told CNN Terror Analyst Samuel Laurent. Ahmedy Coulibaly, a suspect killed Friday during a deadly Kosher market hostage siege, had made several phone calls about targeting police officers in France. The alert came as the lone remaining suspect wanted in connection with a terrorism spree -- Hayat Boumeddiene -- entered Turkey on January 2,...

    Armed Muslim terrorists slew a dozen unarmed members of the editorial staff of the satirical paper Charlie Hebdo in a raid on the paper's Paris office this week. Though the gunman proclaimed these murders as retribution for the paper's mockery of Islamic extremism, leading liberal luminaries have reassured everyone that the attack had nothing to do with "real" Islam. The New York Times dismissed a female survivor's recounting of being spared and advised to convert and obey the Quran as "unreliable testimony. Given the traumatic circumstances these witnesses couldn't be expected to clearly remember events." The NYT's editors contrasted "the...

    Lt. Col. Ralph Peters tonight gave a detailed plan to Bill O’Reilly on how he would fight terror. “One: You accept that you are in a war. Two: You name the enemy, Islamist terrorists. Three: You get the lawyers off the battlefield […] you accept there will be collateral damage and you do not apologize for it. You do not nation build, you don’t try to hold ground. You go wherever in the world the terrorists are and you kill them, you do your best to exterminate them, and then you leave and you leave behind smoking ruins and crying...
