Turkey: member of NATO ally? Member of the E.U.? Muslim Brotherhood supporter, absolutely.

SUSPICION HANGS OVER DEATH OF U.S. JOURNALIST IN TURKEY

Threatened days before car crash for her reporting on ISIS



Serena Shim, an American citizen of Lebanese origin, was a journalist for Iran’s state-owned Press TV. She was killed in a car crash in the city of Suruc after she reportedly collided with a “heavy vehicle.”
She was in a rental car returning from her assignment when the crash occurred. Neither the “heavy vehicle” nor its driver has been located, although her driver reportedly was arrested.
Just days before her death, she had expressed concerns to colleagues and later on camera that she could be arrested by Turkish officials over her reporting. She disclosed that ISIS jihadists were being smuggled into Turkey and back into Syria in the back of humanitarian aid vehicles.
Suruc was located near the Turkish-Syrian border where most of the international media are assembled to cover the Kobani siege by ISIS.
“She was a wonderful young lady from Tennessee working as a reporter for Press TV in southern Turkey,” Franklin Lamb, an international lawyer and friend of Shim, told WND.
“She was preparing to return to the United States and to her mother,” he said. “She was a lovely young woman, smart, funny, hardworking, very American, open, optimistic. She wanted to help the world and alleviate struggle,” said Lamb.
A statement from Press TV said that Shim leaves behind two children, Ali, age 4, and Ajmal, 2.
“The tragic death of Serena Shim has left pain and sorrow in our hearts,” the statement said. “Her family is calling on the Turkish government to provide answers over the circumstance leading to her death.
“Just a couple of days ago she had been threatened by Turkish intelligence,” Press TV stated.
A few days prior to her death, Shim had spoken on camera of her fears of being arrested. She claimed Turkish intelligence agents had accused her of spying after her report of the alleged smuggling of ISIS militants.
“I’m very surprised at this accusation – I even thought of approaching Turkish intelligence because I have nothing to hide,” Shim said in the broadcast a day before she was killed.
“I am a bit worried, because … Turkey has been labeled by Reporters Without Borders as the largest prison for journalists … so I am frightened about what they might use against me,” she said.
Shim said that she had received images from Islamic jihadists crossing the Turkish border and was one of the few reporters covering the development.
“We were some of the first people on the ground – if not the first people – to get that story of … militants going in through the Turkish border. … I’ve got images of them in World Food Organization trucks. It was very apparent that they were militants by their beards, by the clothes they wore, and they were going in there with NGO trucks,” she said.

As WND has reported, Turkey has been aiding ISIS and has refused to join the U.S.-led coalition against the brutal jihadist army, which has committed atrocities such as beheadings in its takeover of large portions of northern Syria and western and central Iraq.
Informed sources tell WND that Turkey continues to keep open its borders to allow jihadists seeking to join ISIS to cross into Syria. Many of the fighters are from Europe and the United States.
Turkey has been a major gathering point for fighters throughout the world to obtain training and logistical support to join various jihadist groups and the Syrian opposition fighting Shiite-Alawite Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
Turkey has made clear that its first priority isn’t the elimination of ISIS but to overthrow Assad.
The Turks believe the coalition against ISIS not only will bestow new legitimacy on Assad but will empower the outlawed Kurdish Workers’ Party, or PKK, as part of the coalition.
The PKK historically has sought a portion of Turkey, northeastern Syria, northern Iraq and northwestern Iraq to form the independent country of Kurdistan.
There are some unconfirmed reports that Turkey has been providing weapons to ISIS to fight the Kurds. One report said that a train from Turkey had carried ammunition and weapons to ISIS to besiege the city of Kobane. However, Ankara hasn’t denied such a claim.
In view of Ankara’s continued war with the PKK, Cemil Bayik, a top PKK commander, said the Turkish government has “eliminated” conditions of a mutually observed 18-month cease-fire. As a consequence, it would “step up its struggle in every area and by all possible means.”
If that were to occur, Ankara could look to ISIS to help eliminate its PKK problem.
“What has emerged is that Turkey is continuing its relations with Daesh and that Turkey will not solve the Kurdish problem in the north,” Bayik told Al-Monitor in an interview.
Daesh is the acronym for ISIS in Arabic.
Bayik said a Turkey “that supports Daesh’s attacks against Kobani, that seeks to depopulate Kobani and lobbies for the establishment of a buffer zone cannot sever its ties with Daesh.”
“Because if it did so, Daesh would expose all of Turkey’s dirty laundry, and document the links between them,” he explained.

Radio host and self-styled “People’s Lawyer” convicted of mortgage fraud

Radio host and self-styled “People’s Lawyer” convicted of mortgage fraud


He styled himself “The People’s Attorney” and once claimed that 3 million listeners tuned in to hear his brand of black empowerment on his nationally-syndicated radio show.
But former Soul 106.3 personality Warren Ballentine is now a convicted fraudster.
A federal jury took less than an hour Friday morning to find Ballentine, 43, guilty on six counts connected to a mortgage scam that bilked lenders out of $10 million.
Ballentine hung his head, frowned and mouthed the word “Man” as the verdicts that could see him jailed for as long as 30 years were announced by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kennelly.
It marked a harsh comedown for the South Side-raised graduate of Chicago State University, who on the eve of his trial had told his nearly 40,000 followers on Facebook that he was looking forward to what he called “Vindication week.”
Even before his indictment last year, Ballentine had hinted at underhand government tactics — posting links to stories about Cointelpro, the widely-criticized 20th-century FBI program to discredit domestic political movements, including black rights groups.
By contrast, the evidence presented against him during a week-long trial was dry, simple and damning enough to result in an unusually swift guilty verdict.
It showed that Ballentine and his fellow schemers used straw buyers to secure mortgages on 28 properties they never intended to live in.
In some cases, he attended closings for the same phony purchasers at two different properties within three days of each other, each time telling the straw buyers to lie on their mortgage forms, evidence showed.
Ballentine uses the handle @truthfighter1 on twitter, but during closing arguments on Thursday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Boutros told jurors “Warren Ballentine is not on trial because he’s a truth fighter — he’s on trial because he fought against the truth.”
Loan applications Ballentine submitted were “shot through with lies,” Boutros said.
The fraudulent applications helped him and his co-conspirators buy homes in Chicago and suburbs including Monee, Woodridge, Mokena, Country Club Hills, Richton Park, and Markham between 2004 and 2006.
Ballentine’s lawyer Lewis Myers unsuccessfully argued that Ballentine merely acted as an attorney at closings, and that Ballentine was not involved in any “hanky-panky.”
Co-defendants who pleaded guilty and testified against Ballentine in return for reduced sentences got “millions” while Ballentine himself only “went home to his wife with $350″ after each closing, Myers said.
Speaking after the verdict, he said Ballentine, who is suffering from depression and has three children, would appeal.
Ballentine, whose show was also carried on WVON radio before his indictment, lives in and broadcasted from Durham, N.C., but grew up in Chicago and previously lived in south suburban Country Club Hills, where he maintained a law office. His radio show was broadcast online after he was dropped from syndication last year.
He faces up to 30 years behind bars on each of 6 counts and a $6 million fine, plus restitution of nearly $10 million when he is sentenced in January.

Chronicling the effects of the Democrat party's search for utopia.

Posted By Mark Tapson To order There’s No Place Like Utopiaclick here.
In the classic tale The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy and friends peer behind the curtain to discover that the great and powerful Wizard of the Emerald City is not who he seems. Now in the new documentary There’s No Place Like Utopia, filmmaker Joel Gilbert sets off on a whimsical, eye-opening, occasionally animated (a lá Michael Moore), Oz-like journey of his own, skipping down the Yellow Brick Road of failed socialist promises and peeling back the curtain to reveal Barack Obama as America’s very own fraudulent Wizard.
Gilbert is also the director and writer of the documentaries Dreams from My Real FatherAtomic Jihad: Ahmadinejad’s Coming War, Obama’s Politics of Defeat,and Farewell Israel: Bush, Iran and the Revolt of Islam. In his latest, he is our guide, traveling from New York to Los Angeles speaking with former Obama voters who are much less enamored of him now that his promises of prosperity have turned out to be empty lies.
This Yellow Brick Road leads through the impoverished wastelands of Democrat-ruled fiefdoms like Detroit, Denver, Newark and Chicago. Gilbert strolls through what look like the bombed-out husks of former factories, churches, police stations, and projects (and indeed, those ruins are compared to photos of the post-war Berlin landscape). When he asks a black Newark woman how Democrat star politician Cory Booker has improved the city in the last eight years, she looks at him in astonishment and says, “Do you mean, how has he destroyed it?”
Along the way Gilbert bumps into notables like Jesse Jackson, Michelle Obama’s mother, and most interestingly, Peggy Joseph, the Florida woman who scored brief internet fame for announcing after the 2008 election that she would no longer have to work because Obama was going to pay her mortgage and her gas. Much to Joseph’s disappointment, Obama not only didn’t follow through, but her mortgage and gas prices are even higher. She educated herself politically since 2008, and does not support him today. Neither do some of Gilbert’s other interviewees, poor blacks in communities increasingly devastated over the decades by progressive policies.
The aim of those policies “is the creation of the perfect future: Utopia,” says interviewee David Horowitz. “It’s the kingdom of heaven on earth.” Progressivism is rebranded socialism (author Jerome Corsi tells Gilbert that the word “progressive” was a “public relations feint”), and Konstantin Preobrazhensky, author of FSB: The Trojan Horse, declares that “socialism is a religion, and the leader is God on earth.”
Those leaders include charismatic men like Hitler, Stalin, and Mao, who promised people a workers’ paradise. Barack Obama is depicted in the documentary as the latest in that line of socialist charlatans. As Corsi tells Gilbert,
The Wizard of Oz is the great fable of the lie of trusting this all-knowing, this all-powerful human being that has all the answers. At the Emerald City, suddenly all your problems are solved… But when you finally get behind the curtain, you realize it’s all deception, it’s all a smoke-and-light show. The wizard is just a carnival hawker.
And yet the brainwashing runs deep. Gilbert speaks with young Chinese tourists in Washington D.C. who declare Chairman Mao “a great man” despite having made “great mistakes” – like the starvation of 50 million Chinese, which the tourists freely admit.
That brainwashing in America came partly when hardcore revolutionaries like Obama’s terrorist friends Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn realized that they couldn’t foment a full-blown revolution, but they could discredit the American dream. And so we see footage of Michelle Obama speaking to crowds before Barack’s election, painting a picture of an America that had failed its dreamers – and urging voters to see her husband as their brilliant savior, their new Wizard.
Obama dismissed the free market (“It has never worked”), but a former auto plant owner in Detroit tells Gilbert that the free market does work, by rewarding good behavior and punishing bad. But the Democrats’ welfare system rewards bad behavior. Author Jack Cashill says that the socialists discovered that the non-working man who depends on the government for his continued existence is even more useful than the working man, because the ultimate aim of social welfare programs, says Corsi, is “dependent, sheep-like voters.” It is an intentional strategy to use poor people, not help them. “They’re stuck in Oz,” says Cashill. “They never get home.”
Speaking of home, Gilbert chats in Spanish with illegals from Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico looking for work outside a Home Depot. They tell him that they have come to America to make a living because socialism has deteriorated their homelands so badly. They support Obama and look forward to amnesty, which would flood the job market with millions of Democrat voters and deal an even bigger blow to the already unemployed black community.
Gilbert also travels to Dearborn, Michigan, the most Muslim-populated city in America. Islam, he suggests, is expanding ominously into cities whose populations are imploding, like Detroit.
Gilbert also walks Hollywood Boulevard, where people seem uncomfortable complaining about Obama on-camera, except one would-be rapper who is selling his CDs on the street. When Gilbert asks how he thinks Obama is similar to the Wizard of Oz, the young rapper replies, “They’re both sneaky and fake, at the end of the story.” The rapper then worries aloud that Obama, who is “a powerful man,” might see this documentary and retaliate.
Cashill says this reluctance to speak out stems from the fear engendered by political correctness, “the strong arm of cultural Marxism,” and there’s nothing funny about it. He adds that “The prison camp is the end of the socialist experiment.” When asked if Russia had the book The Wizard of Oz, former Soviet agent Preobrazhensky replies, “It was so popular that you can’t imagine,” but says the translator spent many years in a gulag.
Ultimately Gilbert returns home to his own Kansas – Tennessee – and concludes that the American spirit is still strong, even among many of the poor, disillusioned blacks he interviewed. They still see this country as the land of opportunity – as long as you don’t trust the Wizard.

West waging a 'CNN war' in Syria as Isil makes gains in Iraq

West waging a 'CNN war' in Syria as Isil makes gains in Iraq

While American air strikes on the Syrian border town of Kobane play out in front of the world’s media, Isil has made territorial gains in Iraq

On the barren wastes of Mount Sinjar, the Yazidis are once more surrounded and fighting for their lives. 
"We saw Isil, there are daily clashes with Isil. Today and yesterday there was heavy fighting," said one stranded Yazidi man, Dre'i Shamo, last week. "The situation is very tragic and critical." 
Further south, the advance of the jihadists of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant on Baghdad continues, slower than before but still with no sign of a reversal of fortune. Another district fell last week, after a major military base the week before, while scores more innocent civilians have died in a rise in bombings in the city itself. 
The jihadists have also reached Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province and the last major city in western Iraq not in Isil's hands. 
The world's attention has been focused on the medium-sized Kurdish town of Kobane, on the Syria-Turkey border, whose accessibility has provided countless opportunities for telegenic news coverage of American air strikes, which have multiplied in size and number. But Kobane is a secondary focus of the war that has been waging in Syria for more than three years; and that war is itself supposed to be secondary in strategic heft for America and its allies, including Britain.
They have deemed Iraq the first target of the fight against Isil. Yet the number of air strikes in supposedly less significant Syria has now reached double that in Iraq, as America and its allies seek to bolster Kobane's defences. 
Analysts and some Iraqis now wonder whether President Barack Obama's declared strategy in the Middle East has been abandoned in favour of pursuing a short-term agenda dictated by the news agenda: that the "CNN factor was at play", as Ben Barry, a former British Army brigadier, put it after compiling a detailed analysis of the military situation in Iraq. 
Isil may even have drawn the West into a trap – pouring second-grade but eager foreign recruits into the battle for Kobane, while pursuing their more important goals next door, he said. 
"Kobane is right against the border," he told The Telegraph. "It may be that Isil deliberately took the decision to attack there to draw US air power away from Anbar." 
In the past two weeks, the Isil advance on Kobane has been halted, if not reversed. One series of pictures last week captured a moment that could become symbolic of the battle for the town: after a handful of jihadists managed to charge up a hill west of Kobane that had already changed hands twice, and replant their black flag on top, they were targeted by a massive air strike. 
Flames shot dramatically in all directions, easily captured by the cameras perched just over the Turkish border a couple of hundred yards away. 
Video showed the jihadists running back down the hill unharmed: the flag, it is true, was obliterated. Meanwhile, another jihadist flag still hangs over the eastern edge of town. 
The US keen that the jihadists do not win the emotive victory of conquering the town and planting their flag over the border post with Turkey, a member of Nato. 
But the town is hardly part of America's strategic thinking – there are already long stretches of the border under Isil control. Then there is the threat to Baghdad and the resumed challenge to Mount Sinjar, where the death or capture of the 7,000 Yazidis estimated to be trapped there would be a humiliating humanitarian disaster. 
Following the flight of the Peshmerga forces of the Kurdish regional government in northern Iraq in August, a huge international military effort was made to save the Yazidis, a colourful minority accused by jihadists of being devil-worshippers
Tens of thousands were led to safety in Iraqi Kurdistan, but thousands of men were killed and thousands of women and children taken captive, even sold as sex slaves. Now, with far less attention, the remainder fear a similar fate. In the past two weeks, the jihadists have cut off their escape route, leaving them surrounded. 
"Isil is close to the mountain," said Dr Saad Babir, a doctor with the Yazidis, speaking by telephone from Mount Sinjar. "They climbed up here and there were clashes." 
He said 700 family groups were cut off, along with hundreds of fighters from both the Yazidis's own hastily put together militia and the Peshmerga. He added that civilians, including children, were beginning to succumb once again to the poor conditions, including the lack of water. 
To some extent, even Sinjar and the rest of northern Iraq is a sideshow now, at least since the US air strikes in August managed to halt the Isil advance on core Kurdish regional government territory. 
Isil had reached within 30 miles of the KRG capital Erbil, and taken the dam at Iraq's largest reservoir, Lake Mosul, before being halted. 
Further south in Anbar, the large, mostly Sunni, province west of Baghdad, they are still on the march. 
On Thursday, they seized the district of Albu Nimr, west of Ramadi, after taking the town of Heet the week before. The Sunni jihadists are close to Baghdad from the north, west, and south, having ventured within six miles of the outer "security" perimeter the Iraqi army has set up. 
Even when the army is able to drive Isil back, it is unable to secure territory. 
The demoralised army, after its stunning defeats in the summer, has come to rely ever more on hardline Shia militias marshalled by their backers in neighbouring Iran. 
But the militias have a brutal reputation among the Sunni population that has to be won back over if the insurgency is to be defeated. 
"Isil has made solid gains in Heet and parts of Haditha," said Hamid al-Mutlaq, a senior Sunni MP. "The US air support is there and good but the problem is that there are no ground forces to hold the lands cleared of Isil." 
Another MP, Ammar Toma, said the US appeared to be prioritising Kurds over Arabs. "We are glad that the allied forces are helping out the Kurds in combating Isil but we resent that they show less attention to Arabs fighting against Isil, whether Sunnis or Shia," he said. 
The air strikes that were supposed to help have dried up, as they have risen in Syria. Mr Barry, who analysed the state of the war for the International Institute of Strategic Studies, said strikes in Syria were running at twice the rate of those in Iraq, despite the insistence that the latter was the prime strategic target. 
His analysis said that on the ground only half the brigades of the Iraqi army were battle-worthy. 
But to retrain them would mean withdrawing them from the front lines, where they were needed. 
The Americans were facing one of the toughest challenges of modern times in Iraq, he said – compared with the easy win of hitting Isil in Kobane. "My suspicion is that the CNN factor is at play here," he said. 
The Americans would claim – perhaps rightly – that it is important to match propaganda with propaganda, and that losing Kobane now would be a disastrous blow to morale. 
It is that town that the West now wants to win. Iraq will have to wait – if it can.

Woman beheaded for killing ISIS member who attempted to rape her


uk isis women police.si  650x365 Woman beheaded for killing ISIS member who attempted to rape her
Diyala (IraqiNews.com) According to a security source in Diyala province, the terrorist organization ISIS beheaded a 30 year old woman for killing one its members as he attempted to rape her in her home located northeast of Baquba.
The source said in an interview for IraqiNews.com: “On Wednesday, a member of the terrorist organization ISIS attempted to rape a 30 year old woman inside her house in a village located in the northern district of Muqdadiya (35 km northeast of Baquba), but she managed to grab his gun and kill him in order to maintain her honor. The woman was resting at home and recovering from a medical illness before the attack occurred.”
The source, who requested anonymity, added that “members of ISIS imposed a perimeter in the vicinity of the incident before arresting the sick woman and then killing her by cutting off her head with a sword as per the sentence issued by the Sharia Court of the organization.”

Islamist terrorism on the streets of NYC

Pro-ISIS Muslim convert in NYPD ax attack called for jihad

He hated his homeland.
The ax-swinging madman who launched a “terrorist attack” on four rookie NYPD cops on a Queens street was a Muslim convert who took to the Web to urge violence against America.
“America’s military is strong abroad, but they have never faced an internal mass revolt,” Zale Thompson, 32, wrote on Facebook. “They are weaker at home. We are scattered and decentralized, we can use this as an advantage.”
“Helicopters, big military will be useless on their own soil. They will not be able to defeat our people if we use guerilla warfare. Attack their weak flanks . . . If you get wounded who cares. If you die who cares. Eventually they will surrender and then the war will be over.”

The ax used by the suspect to attack the NYPD officers
Thompson — who was shot dead by police on Thursday after wounding two cops with a hatchet on a busy Jamaica street — even ­defended ISIS in a comment posted on a YouTube video and directed at another user who had blasted the militant group’s bloodlust.
“If you’re looking for ‘perfect’ Muslims who never make any mistakes in their Jihad, then you will be looking in vain! If the Zionists and the Crusaders had never invaded and colonized the Islamic lands ­after WW1, then there would be no need for Jihad! Which is better, to sit around and do nothing, or to ­Jihad?” he wrote.
The college-educated recluse was booted from the Navy in 2003 for drugs and spent most of his time holed up in his father’s Queens apartment watching violent jihadi imagery, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said Friday.
Thompson became Muslim two years ago but ramped up his anti-American sentiment “with more intensity in recent days,” NYPD spokesman John Miller said.
Thompson repeatedly watched ISIS beheading videos, reports on the recent White House security breach and the deadly terror assault in Ottawa, Canada.
His Facebook page features an image of a Muslim warrior with a turban and sword that was taken from the cover of a book on Islamic culture in the Iberian Peninsula ­titled “Golden Age of the Moor.”
Drawn to their fiery rhetoric, Thompson also viewed propaganda and recruitment videos from ISIS, al Qaeda and al-Shabaab.
“It appears that this is something he has been thinking about for some time,” Miller said.
Investigators recovered another ax and a hunting knife at Thompson’s apartment, cops said.
Despite his thirst for jihadist content, cops said Thompson — who had domestic-violence busts in California but a clean record in New York — never joined a formal terror group or regularly attended a mosque.

“We would describe him as self-radicalized,” Bratton said.
Thompson’s extremism culminated in Thursday’s bloody attack in Jamaica, where surveillance footage shows him lurking in the area for several minutes before striking.
“He’s looking in their direction for a good two minutes, maybe longer,” a law-enforcement source said.
“You can see him standing on the corner. He appears to be looking toward where the police officers are. He removes the hatchet from his backpack. Then, all of a sudden, he just springs into action and goes right at these officers.”
The attack lasted seven seconds until Thompson was shot dead by two cops who had avoided the ax.
Thompson lunged at the four cops as they posed for a picture.
He chopped Officer Kenneth Healey in the back of the head and sliced Officer Joseph Meeker on the arm.
Surrounded by friends and family, Healey remained in critical but stable condition at Jamaica Hospital, cops said.
Meeker was released Friday, sources said.
LaToya James, 29, a homeless woman who worked at a nearby 99-cent store, was struck by a stray police bullet during the chaos and might be paralyzed, law-enforcement sources said.
Neighbors described Thomas as a quiet man who had become increasingly detached and depressed in recent weeks.
“He looked sad and was always alone,” said neighbor Herbie ­Villier.

American Jews should ask themselves this question

Why is Kerry singling out Israel?

Op-ed: US secretary of state keeps saying Israeli-Palestinian issue cannot remain unchanged. What about the situation in Syria, Iraq, Russia, China and Turkey?

Like a regular mantra, US Secretary of State John Kerry has a habit of saying that the Israeli-Palestinian issue cannot remain unchanged. 
  
Strangely enough, he isn't saying that about the conflict in Syria, where the death toll has already crossed the 200,000 mark with people being slaughtered, beheaded and dying in different ways, on its way to the 250,000 mark; he isn't saying that about four million refugees from Syria and 10 million displaced people; he isn't saying that about the Islamic State, which is beheading people and butchering minorities; he isn't saying that about Iraq, which has been torn into pieces, or about Baghdad's airport which is about to fall into the hands of jihadist terror. 

Kerry Controversry 
Kerry's comments serving radical propaganda  / Ben-Dror Yemini 
Op-ed: US secretary of state is caught in the post-colonialist conception which blames Israel for all the troubles of the world. 
Full op-ed
He isn't saying that about Libya either, a country controlled by a coalition of insane jihad organizations, on the verge of Europe. He isn't saying that about Yemen, which has died and is controlled by wild tribes navigated from behind the scenes by the "smiling" Iran; he isn't saying that about the intolerable uranium enrichment in Tehran, which has him and the West wrapped around its little finger. 

He isn't saying that about Russia either, which not only conquered eastern Ukraine, but also annexed the huge Crimea region. It isn't an "occupation," after all; that only exists in Israel. 

He isn't saying that about Turkey, which brutally conquered one-third of the island of Cyprus, and still controls the area; he isn't saying that about China either, which is slowly turning Tibet into a region inhabited by Chinese; he isn't saying that about Hezbollah, which is piling up tens of thousands of missiles on Israel's border; he isn't saying that about his Qatari friends, who are cunningly funding the terror that the United States is fighting against; he isn't saying that about Hamas either, which proudly announced that it is rebuilding its network of terror tunnels targeting Israeli territory. 

He is only saying that about Israel – the only safe, stable, democratic place one can rely on in the Middle East. Only in Israel, the situation cannot remain unchanged. 

I would just like to mention that it was John Kerry who was Syrian President Bashar Assad's personal friend and sat down with him many times for intimate meetings. It was John Kerry, in his former position as chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, who worked to return the American ambassador to Damascus and pressure Israel, with the price being the Golan Heights of course. Then too, the situation could not remain unchanged, and aren’t we lucky that it did remain unchanged. 

The question is why is he always singling out Israel of all the nations in the world? Could it be that it pains him to see Israel secure and thriving, and that's why he has such an urge to weaken it? To sell it to a Palestinian gang whose only goal is to weaken Israel, and then resume the fighting against it after it crumbles? 


Can't he hear the leader of this gang, Mahmoud Abbas, referring to the Jews as "impure," as they are defiling the Temple Mount when they visit it? Can't he see the law sentencing a Palestinian to death for daring to sell a house to a Jew? Abbas even added that he would step up the punishment for selling homes to Jews, but how can a death sentence be stepped up? 

The situation cannot remain unchanged. Perhaps the foreign minister of the United States would care to explain to us why he only uses this expression here. Why is he singling Israel and the Jews out of all the nations?

An unfriendly economic sign.

Chart Of The Day: 8 Years A Slave


B0oyWtvIYAAnU-2

Today’s Chart comes from J.D. Power, showing the growth of long term loans in the Canadian car market. While 96 month loans are just starting to hit American consumers, the 8 year loan terms have been present in the Great White North for some time. A friend was recently looking at a modestly equipped Big Three Pickup, which would be used for work. The truck, with an MSRP of $35,000 CAD (plus 13 percent sales tax), was offered at 96 months for 3.99%. That would have added up to $6,000 in interest payments over the loan term.

Not because Obama is miffed. It's because his sympathies are with the Muslim Brotherhood..

US officials: Israel defense chief denied meetings


WASHINGTON (AP) — Still miffed over negative comments that Israel's defense minister made about Secretary of State John Kerry's Mideast peace efforts and nuclear negotiations with Iran, the Obama administration this week refused his requests to meet several top national security aides, U.S. officials said Friday.
While Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon did see Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, the officials said the White House and State Department rejected Israeli proposals for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden, national security adviser Susan Rice and Kerry on his five-day trip to the United States. The administration had sought to stop Ya'alon from seeing Power but the objections were made too late to cancel the meeting, according to the officials.
The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the snubs, which were first reported by several Israeli media outlets.
Ya'alon met with Hagel at the Pentagon on Tuesday. Kerry himself was out of the country until late Wednesday, but the officials said pointedly that a meeting with the secretary of state could have been arranged before Ya'alon departs the U.S.
The White House and State Department declined to comment on internal deliberations about who Ya'alon should see.
"I can't speak to any meetings that didn't occur," White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters.
At the State Department, spokeswoman Jen Psaki noted that the Ya'alon's meeting with his counterpart Hagel was "a natural, standard procedure."
Visiting Israeli defense ministers, including Ya'alon's immediate predecessor Ehud Barak, have in the past been granted meetings with senior U.S. officials other than their direct counterparts. This week's refusals come amid increasingly strained U.S.-Israel relations, particularly over criticism of Kerry by several members of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet, including Ya'alon.
Earlier this year, Ya'alon infuriated officials in Washington with comments accusing the administration of being weak on Iran and questioning the U.S. commitment to Israel's security. That followed reports that Ya'alon had criticized Kerry for being unrealistic and naive in trying to forge an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

Do you think that 20 years sitting the Rev. Wright's church listening to anti white, Jew demeaning rants had no impact on Obama?

How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010.

Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin."

"We also find that one of the favorite policies advocated by conservatives to prevent voter fraud appears strikingly ineffective. Nearly three quarters of the non-citizens who indicated they were asked to provide photo identification at the polls claimed to have subsequently voted."

The dismissive tone of this paragraph says a lot about the mindset of these people. It's not the back handed slam on conservatives. It's the fact that they never consider that there may be and should be effective controls on voting. So, if ID's are ineffective, they are probably quite happy. Remember, when everybody is citizen then nobody is a citizen. 
What the first paragraph shows is that even  a small amount of vote fraud can have a dramatic impact on the vote.
