  • Hamas spokesman: ‘We are leading our people to death’… er, confrontation… yeah, that’s it

    Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri is not helping advance his organization’s cause. Zuhri became the focus of criticism when a clip of him advocating for civilians to act as human shields in order to protect Hamas militants and assets exploded on the internet. A MEMRI TV translation of Zuhri’s appearance on Hamas’ Al-Aqsa TV showed him talking up the “character” of Palestinians who “defend their rights and their homes with their bare chests and their blood.”“We in Hamas call upon our people to adopt this policy in order to protect the Palestinian homes,” Zuhri advocated. On Sunday, Zuhri was...

    Q. How do you know when Barack Obama has set a dubious new record for presidential weakness? A. When Jimmy Carter's former top adviser mocks his anemic response to an international crisis. On today's Morning Joe, Zbigniew Brzezinski argued that the US needs to discuss with Ukraine the provision of defensive weapons in the face of the Russian threat. He then mockingly observed: "the Ukrainians did ask us for help in that regard. Do you know what our answer has been? We offered them prepackaged food for their soldiers. Well, you can't win a military conflict by throwing pancakes at...
  • Zbigniew Brzezinski: 'Very Accommodating' Iranians Willing To Abandon Nuclear Ambitions

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Sure, he was careful to couch it. But the bottom line is that Zbigniew Brzezinski believes that Iran is willing to abandon its goal of acquiring nuclear weapons. Jimmy Carter's former national security adviser offered that opinion in response to questioning by former RNC Chairman Michael Steele on today's Morning Joe. Brzezinski also claimed that the recent round of negotiations have been "substantive, serious" and that the Iranians have been "very accommodating." View the video here.
  • Mika Muses: Did Liz Cheney Ask Rollins to Call Her 'Bored Housewife' As A Favor?

    Trying to decide which is the bigger story here: 1. Mika Brzezinski speculating that Liz Cheney asked Ed Rollins, as a favor, to call her a "bored housewife"; or 2. Joe Scarborough saying that whenever he imitates Zbigniew Brzezinski's accent, Brzezinski beefs that he's making him "sound like a rabbi." You be the judge. Both happened on today's Morning Joe. Liz Cheney has taken some heat for suggesting that sitting Republican Senator Enzi is old and confused. Mika seemed to be suggesting that having Rollins take a sexist shot at her would instantly transform Cheney from aggressor into victim. There...

According to a report in Middle East Newsline, Obama dispatched Malley to Egypt and Syria late last week with a message that the he intends to mend and bolster relations with both nations, and to give greater weight to their concerns regarding regional conflicts than did President George W. Bush. During the Democratic Party primaries, Obama was lashed by critics for...
  • Zbigniew's Advice To Obama: Tell Netanyahu No War To Stop Iran Getting Nukes

    NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein
    Is Zbigniew Brzezinski OK with Iran developing nuclear weapons? Sounds that way. On Morning Joe today, Jimmy Carter's former national security adviser had some advice for President Obama: tell Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu that America will not go to war against Iran. Attacking Iran's nuclear facilities would surely be an act of war. Yet doing so might well be the only way to prevent the ayatollahs from getting the A-bomb. Unfortunately, neither Joe Scarborough nor anyone else on the panel including daughter Mika asked Brzezinski flat out whether he would encourage America to stand by while Iran got nukes. But...

    It's hardly a surprise, coming from the man who counseled the United States to shoot down Israeli planes should they seek to attack Iran's nuclear facilities. But just for the record, Zbigniew Brzezinski has opined that the US and, yes, Israel itself, should have voted in favor of last week's UN resolution granting “non-member observer statehood” to Palestinians living in the West Bank of Israel. Brzezinski stated his view on today's Morning Joe. He did say something that was probably true, when expressing skepticism that, despite their public utterances, President Obama and Susan Rice truly opposed the resolution. Brzezinski suggested...

    Sounding less like a supposed foreign policy expert and more like someone who's been listening to way too much late, late night left-wing radio, Zbigniew Brzezinski claimed to see the outlines of a "conspiracy" in the making of the anti-Mohammed movie trailer. Saying "it's not an issue of freedom of speech entirely," Jimmy Carter's former National Security Adviser suggested on Morning Joe today that the makers of the movie could be held "liable" for the deaths of the US Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. He recommended that the United States should "investigate and crack down" on "evil forces"...

    This is a plan that the leader of Hezbollah, Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah, mentioned in a Sy Hersh article back in 2007. A plan that involves the persistent metamorphosis of the region into mini states, and micro states — among the various ethic and religious factions. A plan that is often attributed to Zbigniew Brzezinski (the intellectual godfather of this strategy). In 2007 Nasrallah told Seymour Hersh that the American plan was, “the drawing of a new map for the region.” Nasrallah believed that this stratagem would leave Israel surrounded, by a host of small and tranquil countries. He said that...

But admittedly, he was overwhelmed by domestic problems,” he said on CBS’s Face the Nation.

There is now the new East in Asia. There is now a globally, politically awakened population.” But that doesn’t mean the demise of the United States, as long as we’re willing to make some changes, Brzezinski, says. “We have to accustomize ourselves to that world.

    Zbigniew Brzezinki's indictment of the United States was so harsh—calling America "one of the most socially unjust societies in the world"—that even his own daughter Mika was taken aback, asking her father to explain himself. But that didn't stop Andrea Mitchell from emphatically agreeing with Zbigniew Brzezinki's condemnation of the USA. In the course of doing so, Mitchell called the Tea Party and resistance to ObamaCare "exaggerated forms" of protest, while praising Occupy Wall Street as "a real movement" with "real passion and anger."

    Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Wednesday said his country's ties with NATO have to overcome years of historic distrust, as he prepares to attend the Western alliance's summit. "Relations between Russia and NATO have always been difficult, maybe it's a legacy plus emotions, feelings, people's perceptions," he told foreign policy experts and dignitaries at his Gorky residence just outside Moscow. "We all have some historical background." "Undoubtedly, this weighs down our relations including with NATO.

    In 388 AD a Christian mob led by a local bishop destroyed the synagogue of Callinicum, a Greco-Roman city in northern Syria. The attack angered emperor Theodosius I, who had declared Christianity the religion of the Roman state just eight years earlier. As the Jewish community enjoyed a protected status under Roman laws, he ordered the synagogue be rebuilt be rebuilt at bishop's expense. This triggered Ambrose, the bishop of Milan, to write the emperor a letter defending the obliteration of the Jewish temple. What could possibly be wrong with destroying a "house of betrayal and godlessness" where Christ's name...

    Barack Obama's real thinking about Israel and the Middle East continues to be an enigma.

Several advisors have evidenced a history of suspicion and worse toward Israel. One of his advisors in particular, Robert Malley, clearly warrants attention, as does the reasoning that led him to being chosen by Barack Obama.

    I was never fan of the Iraqi war, but even the most wild-eyed critic has to acknowledge now that Gen. David Petraeus’ “surge” worked. Violence has dramatically declined and political tranquility in the region is improving. In time we can put that war behind us. But what is more disconcerting is Barack Obama’s disastrous war plan. During the primaries the stealth candidate wore an “anti-war” façade. The public was not listening closely enough. Obama has been pressing for a time table to withdraw U.S. troops from Iraq, but then goes on to say we should shift our efforts to Afghanistan,...

    American Thinker ^ | 5/27/08 | Ed Lasky
    A foreign policy adviser of presidential candidate Barack Obama, Zbigniew Brzezinski, accused members of the American Jewish establishment of "McCarthyism" in its attitude towards critics of Israel. He called the pro-Israel lobby "too powerful" and accused American supporters of Israel as being too ready to use the slur of "anti-Semitism" against critics of Israel. He also misrepresented the facts, stating that AIPAC, the American-Israel Public Affairs Committee has "consistently opposed a two-state solution and a lot of members of Congress have been intimidated and I don't think that is healthy". In fact, AIPAC does indeed support a two state solution....

    Zbigniew Brzezinski says that since we talked to Likud, we can talk to Hamas. And Kevin Spacey, who has trouble keeping his disputed primary states straight, suggests that his "Recount" plays it straight, despite evidence to the contrary. All that and more on today's Morning Joe. In reverse order, let's begin with Zbig's appearance, and consider this statement. ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: I have joined a bi-partisan group of some prominent Americans including Paul Volcker, Brent Scowcroft, Lee Hamilton, and some others, in saying that talking to Hamas is a necessary course of action. You know, we talked to Likud when Likud...

Hillary Fundraiser Curses Out GOP When Florida’s Republican Party attacked Hillary Clinton for enlisting a fundraiser once accused of racketeering, the fundraiser responded with a profanity-laced tirade — and later apologized.

    Lawmakers in Canada appear to be paving the way for "deep integration" with the U.S. and Mexico with a proposed measure that advances the controversial Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America promoted by the Bush administration, notes WND columnist Jerome Corsi. It's an issue Corsi has fully investigated for his newest book, "The Late Great USA." The conservative minority government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is pressing for "The Trade, Investment and Labour Mobility Agreement", which would enable a Canadian company to challenge laws in provinces that block the North American Free Trade Agreement. Murray Dobbin, a Vancouver author...

    President Carter's national security adviser said Thursday the Iraq war was likely to lead to "a head-on conflict" with Iran and other parts of the Muslim world. Zbigniew Brzezinski also told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that Bush administration policy was driven by "imperial hubris" and has proved to be a disaster on historic, strategic and moral grounds. "If the United States continues to be bogged down in a protracted bloody involvement in Iraq, and I emphasize what I am about to say, the final destination on this downhill track is likely to be a head-on conflict with Iran and...

    Council on Foreign Relations ^ | July, 2004 | Robert Gates, et al
    The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have positioned American troops along Iran’s borders, making the United States and Iran wary competitors and neighbors who nonetheless possess overlapping interests. Meanwhile, questions continue to be raised about Iran’s nuclear program and its involvement with terrorism. Clearly, contending with Iran will constitute one of the most complex and pressing challenges facing future U.S. administrations. This informative report, which sparked sharp debate in Washington and extensive coverage by U.S. and international media, offers a timely new approach. Rejecting the conventional wisdom that Iran is on the verge of another revolution, the report calls for...
