WASHINGTON, May 31, 2011 — Israel is the land of my dreams. The first time I visited Israel, I knelt and kissed the Holy Land.

I touched the stones of Jerusalem, thinking that King David, King Solomon and so many others had walked those paths, and I admired the beauty, the miracle that the Israelis had managed to build, right there in the middle of the desert.

And I admired the Israeli Jews, my tough brothers and sisters, and I kept smiling, thinking, "it’s okay, be patient, they are fighting for survival in the middle of those barbarians."

Last week, during a speech in Congress, most of us felt the force of leadership of a man whose country’s safety and existence were at stake. We heard his voice resonate through Congress like a roar, strong and decisive.

He was one of King David’s successors, Benyamin Netanyahu. The Lion of Judah had been awakened.

A few days earlier, President Obama had unexpectedly asked flat out that Israel go back to its pre-1967 borders, a veiled maneuver to achieve the destruction of America’s best ally. He asked them to surrender territory that is strategically crucial to their defense from the usual, yet ever more ferocious enemies of the State of Israel.

But what, really, are Obama’s objectives? Let’s look his track record:


On December 2, 2010, the Obama administration approved passing control of two uranium mines in Wyoming to a Russian company, Uranium One, after the Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved transferring the mines’ licenses.

Thus Russia gained control of half of US Uranium production at the same time that it has been supplying uranium to Iran’s nuclear program.

On January 1, 2011, Ukraine sent a shipment of highly enriched Uranium to Russia for secure disposal, a move Obama lauded, saying it "advances a top priority for my administration and for global security."

The shipment adds, with Obama's approval, more weapons grade material to the Russian stockpile, again at the same time that Russia supplies uranium to Iran's nuclear program.


In February, 2010, Obama banned weapons sales to Israel, and at the same time authorized $10 billions in arms to Arab-Muslim states belonging to Arab League, including Egypt, Kuwait, Jordan, Morocco, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

In September that year, Obama authorized the largest arms sale ever to Saudi Arabia, worth $67 billion. The package included 84 new F-15 fighters, as well as upgrades to 70 fighters already in the Saudi arsenal. It included three types of helicopters: 70 Apaches, 72 Black Hawks and 36 Little Birds. The sale also included $30 billion in ships and hardware to upgrade the kingdom’s naval forces.


Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy reported, “At a White House celebration of Ramadan tonight in the company of representatives of several of the Nation’s most prominent Muslim Brotherhood front organizations, President Obama announced his strong support for one of their most immediate objectives: the construction of a mega-mosque and “cultural center” at Ground Zero [area]. In so doing, he publicly embraced the greatest tar-baby of his presidency.”

Naturally, the President has been accused by relatives of 9/11 victims of “abandoning America” over support for Islamic cultural centre.


You might wonder, why bring up Itamar at this point?

We all remember the horrible massacre on Shabbat, when beasts murdered five members of the Fogel family while they were sleeping.

The Muslim Palestinian terrorists slit the throats even of the children, among them tiny three-month old Hadassah.

Slitting throats, Muslim-terrorist-style, is done slightly, so as to make the victim die slowly, in the most horrible pain while the blood runs out their bodies.

Why did this happen?

My friend, Leah Goldsmith, the wife of Itamar’s mayor, stated at a rally of support we hosted in NYC: “We are at war when people come on Shabbat to slaughter men, women, and children. President Obama has asked the Israeli government to remove the soldiers from the Tapuach junction near us, which protected the Jerusalem-Shechem road. [The Israeli government accepted Obama’s demands.] So you got the butchering of a family, then a bombing at a bus stop because the White House thinks that soldiers checking Arabs is a human rights violation.

"Itamar is on a mountain. To the west we can see the skyscrapers of Tel Aviv, and to the east, we see the Jordan Valley. Do you want us, or Hamas, on that mountain?” (Arutz Sheva, March 27, 2011)


In the same vein, Obama last week attended, in Deauville, France, the G8 summit of the leaders of some of the world's most powerful economies. They retain this status even though America is quasi-bankrupt and the other members, except Germany, are in dire straits as well.

During the summit, despite America's near bankruptcy and despite the fact that Joplin, Missouri had been ravaged and hundreds of Americans killed by devastating tornadoes, the President of the United States decided that his top priority should be the financial support of Muslim countries by the G8. He claimed this would advance the cause of democracy in what his administration has taken to calling the "Arab Spring."

Obama succeeded in getting $40 billion committed to advance the “Arab Spring,” rather than trying to get it from the wealthiest Muslim countries, which should and could create that fund to help their own.

Notwithstanding America’s bankruptcy, Obama could have been presidential enough to get some of that money for the people of Texas and Missouri, ravaged by fires and tornadoes, respectively. He might even have suggested that the money go to Japan, a nation devastated by earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster.

Obama's priorities are not surprising from a man who, in his “Middle East” speech on May 19 said that, “we are connected to that region by forces of faith.” Muslim faith, that is.

Each item in this list might seem small, but taken together, the picture they paint of Obama's priorities is damning. And the full list is much, much longer.

When Obama demands bluntly that Israel go back to its pre-1967 borders, it is a veiled way for him to set up Israel’s destruction.

Sadly, the suicidal collective viewpoint that has been developing in Israel since its inception is moving the likes of Ehud Olmert to speak up, in spite of the fact that Olmert’s moral corruption strips him of any kind of moral authority to speak up on any grounds.

Israel should only be burdened with one enemy, the enemy without.

Israel is at war, and this critical fact is ignored when it allows the enemy within, emboldened by Israel's most important ally, to become vocal and express opinions that are detrimental to the country’s security.

Whoever speaks of giving up the strategic zones that are historically and forever connected to the heartland of the Jewish people should be incarcerated. These verbal attacks are even worse than exploding a grenade in the middle of innocent civilians.

The effect of a grenade stops with the victims.

The impact of any verbal and ideological attack by Israelis who are unaware and unwilling to identify themselves as Jews is such that those attacks can be repeated, retransmitted, copied, distributed and manipulated ad nauseam in this internet era.

Obama’s greatest victory would be to get Jews to harm other Jews, G-d forbid.

That should never happen.

Land for peace has never worked. Any mathematician can easily say there is no chance, such a formula is doomed.

Peace for Peace. That’s a possibility.

Israel has only ONE possible answer to Obama.

So, Bibi's speech in front of the American Congress came and went with the same speed as the winds that blow in the desert where Israel received their land from G-d Himself.

Sadly, none of us were surprised by the PM announcement that he was and is ready to give up Jewish Israeli land for peace and despite knowing that Israel's enemies are aiming to destroy country and people, he was unable to react as a former elite Sayeret Matkali and respond in sort in the face of danger.

What does any human being do in such cases, how does one react when someone is aiming to kill you or yours ? Wouldn't you shoot first?

When his brother, Yoni Netanyahu in the call of duty was in the face of danger, Yoni was the first to go in and got killed. He did not duck. He did not fear. He did what he had to do.

This Netanyahu is 'the other' kind of Netanyahu.

Saying that the land of Judea and Samaria are part of our Holy Land, and yet putting it on the table for exchange, was not only inadequate, but extremely irresponsible, endangering not only the people of the region, but also the courageous and young soldiers the IDF who are committed to their defense.

Saying that he people of Judea and Samaria are Jews -will not help, just as it did not help when the Fogel family was massacred in Itamar, Samaria some months ago -when Netanyahu and Ehud Barak gave in to inexcusable demands from the American president "not to continue" submitting Muslim Palestinians to searches because it was demeaning and attempting against their 'human' dignity. The result, we know it, was a despicable massacre where 2 parents and 3 of their children including a baby, had their throats slit and left to die in the most horrible dead...

And, Netanyahu had no better reaction than to order the building of 400 housing units in Judea Samaria.

What would have been the best possible response?

He should have simply signed the documents to 'legitimize' the status of Judea and Samaria once and for all.

Only then, the sacrifice of the Fogels would have made some kind of sense...

Now the enemy knows that the PM is putting the Land of Judea and Samaria up for grabs.

Regarding "Jerusalem United" this notion also came mitigated by some verbal acrobatics politicians are used to.

There are only two things in the favor of Israel's security so far in Netanyahu's speech:

(1) “Israel will not negotiate with a Palestinian government backed by the Palestinian version of al-Qaeda," he said, referring to Hamas.

(2) That the Palestinians be completely demilitarized while there would always be an Israeli military presence.

None of which regarding the Palestinians is likely to happen.

So, for now, we can breathe deeply and calmly and simply say Thank G-d for always looking after Israel and His people.

“If you will not fight for Right when you can easily win without blood shed;

if you will not fight

when your victory is sure and not too costly;

you may come to the moment

when you will have to fight

with all the odds against you

and only a precarious chance of survival.

There may even be a worse case.

You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory,

because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Sir Winston Churchill.


As I was commenting Obama's performance yesterday in front of AIPAC, his hypocritical rhetoric did not impress me beyond the usual.

Spewing venom in front of impassive audiences has become his trademark specialty.

What was more striking, however, was the hidden plan and the devious manipulation orchestrated together with Lee "Rosy" Rosenberg, whose speech played a wonderful pas-de-deux ballet prefacing Obama's speech -in a most harmonious innuendo.

So, I wanted to learn more, find an explanation.

What has not been my surprise, when I found out exactly where this famous "Rosy" comes from.

First, as recently as March 27, Lee "Rosy" Rosenberg has been appointed president of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

But, who is Rosenberg? He has been "a jazz recording industry veteran capitalist who, surprise, accompanied U.S. President Barack Obama on his campaign trip to Israel two years ago."

Furthermore, Rosenberg also served on the president’s national campaign finance committee. Aha!

So, the pro-Israel lobby chose a hard-core liberal, Obama-guy, to be at the helm of the pro-Israel institution known for their staunch, unfailing position defending Israel's interests in America.

WHY would AIPAC choose this man as their head?

Sure, some will tell me, AIPAC "is" a lobby machine that needs to deal with the government and it was maybe much easier to have an insider.

That much I can understand.

But, why give such a character the key position in the organization and not simply the role of liaison with the Obama government and still leave that position for someone who will actually continue with the job and the image that has always been AIPAC's as lead defender of Israel's interests inn America...? Now, that beats me...!

WHY would AIPAC betray the trust and the safety of the Land of Israel by taking this random step...? Unless it is not so random...

Adding insult to injury, AIPAC's president not only is from Chicago, the home state of President Obama, but he is also on first-name terms with former White House Chief of Staff and current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, as well as David Axelrod, President Obama’s senior advisor.

Sure enough, at the beginning of his speech, Obama did not fail to mention the Chicagoan delegation -which I am sure was mostly formed of "friends of Obama."

By doing so, in a style "shepherd asks wolf to take care of his sheep," the shepherd in this case might as well have taken his sheep to jump off the cliff...!

This is what explains the rabid applause from an AIPAC audience unusually warm for a president who is asking for nothing less than the destruction of the State of Israel.

In life, every living organism has been given an inner code called the “survival mode.”

Animals have so-called defense mechanisms to protect them from predators, from all kinds of dangers. Chameleons, for instance, can switch their colors according to the environment, so they can wander unnoticed. There is an infinite amount of examples wecould have from the animal kingdom, but let’s concentrate on human species.

Mankind is the ultimate and most developed of all the species.

Individually, each man/woman has been given countless defense mechanisms from which to choose and not endanger themselves–so they can protect themselves and theirs.

For practical reasons and for the purpose of this analysis, let’s consider a society represented as one single entity formed by a collective group of men/women.

As such, the society also has the possibility to count with defense mechanisms, such as keeping an eye alert for any danger coming against that society, any danger that could jeopardize life of part of the group, or even threaten total annihilation.

Thus, when there is an outburst of liberalism like the current one, navigating through different spheres of society at large, one question comes immediately to our mind, ‘are they out their minds?’

Ironically, though a banal question which we frequently borrow from the popular lingo, it does reflect a part of thereality.

The premise here is that a society seen as a whole body, is not perfect as we, individually, were not intended to be either.

Thus, not being perfect, Society has some anomalies, like we have in our own individual bodies. When a society “gets sick,” one possibility is that it may be affected with a kind of “group depression” by which it becomes weakened because the defense mechanisms are no longer active and do not allow to exert the protection of the mere existence of society.

This kind of society depression is mostly characterized by the lala-land attitude, which aims mostly to be amenable to all other societies, in order to please them, in the hope that they will like us so much, that we will have overcome their threats by being nice.

But, let's continue with the similarities to the animal kingdom.

What happens when a beast inthe jungle is wounded? What do the other animals do?

Pitiless, they see an opportunity and grab it to prey on the wounded animal and all of them who are around, end up vulturing around and feast on it.

Society-wise, the same is reproduced. That's how Liberalism could be explained.

Thus, other societies recognize the weakness of the first and will not hesitate to attack.

My premise goes even further.

In a society affected by this kind of depression-provoked liberalism, a suicidal tendency installs in its midst.

At an individual level, people part of this societal phenomenon suffer this extreme societal illness by allowing themselves enter, without even noticing it, feelings of liberalism.

As example of suicidal attitudes one could see these people, for instance, become defenders of peace and naively extend an olive branch –even if over 3,000 human beings had been murdered treacherously in times of peace.

Life does not certainly guarantee immediate satisfaction for any of our wishes. Each wish requires some amount of work, of effort.

When attacked, a society has to make the effort to defend herself, to behave in a manner that the attack as well as the attacker are neutralized in a proportional way to the intensity of the attack lest it places herself at the mercy of a similar or, worse yet, another more lethal attack.

“Survival Mode” thus is the condition sine qua non for our existence.

When “Suicidal Mode” takes over, judgment will be blurred, making it impossible to switch to the “Survival Mode” in the natural, reflective manner that can allow us to overcome a deadly threat.

As a conclusion, it is impossible to attempt to convince someone in this condition to behave as a normal functioning being, with a heightened “Survival Mode”.

The critical issue here is the impossibility of communicating with -let alone convince otherwise- those suicidal minds that are the liberals, because they are unable to understand that to live and have peace on Earth one has to be strong and show it.

The only place where Liberalism could have been welcome was in the Garden of Eden.

A whopping 80% Jews in America not only voted for Obama but also contributed massively to his election campaign even when his pro-Israel and pro-Jewish credentials had yet to be proven.

As it is, last week, Obama betrayed the very existence of the State of Israel and, as presidential candidate Herman Cain said, threw Israel under the bus, thus endangering the mere existence of Israel and the Jewish people worldwide whose enemies have been given the green light to jeopardize the existence of that tiny land.

Today's news "Top Jewish Americans ponder support for Obama..."

But, what is there to ponder!

The man has now simply and plainly, first of all, removed himself, if not 'de jure' then 'de facto', from the eternal ally America has had since its independence -and he is choosing to side with the Muslim world.

I know that business and personal interest as well as a plethora of over-grown egos come across our paths, but, truthfully, the love of G-d and the love of Israel and their defense as well as the defense of 11 million Jews worldwide depend on all of us, Jews who are committed to that defense.

Defending Israel is not compulsory by any length. It is done with the heart and the soul of those just as those young volunteers who join the IDF -because as the one close to my heart said: "I must be with them..."

The Love of Israel has no price tag.

As a matter of fact, there is no way the IDF would give a job to any mercenary, that's simply unthinkable.

That's why, I regret that PM Netanyahu lowered his head when he had to say NO to the unconceivable demand and betrayal with which Mr. Obama stabbed in the heart of Israel.

WE have and continue to do everything we can to be good for mankind.

So, Jews must keep their pride and their conviction that no one is doing them any favor, on the contrary, we have been and always continue to be at the service of the world.

We must continue to fulfill G-d's expectations of us, the Chosen people, and that's not simply a title -it comes with a heavy challenge that we have picked up millenium after millenium, with joy, pride, inspiration and devotion.

There is everything for us to stand tall.

And, Jews, whether liberal or conservatives, reform, conservatives or orthodox, must make sure that they get the president's message: destruction of Israel.

And, we must act accordingly.

Booing the president of the United States for wanting to destroy Israel and siding with the side of evil, is a very civilized reaction.

And, stop funding Obama is the least the whole Jewish American community must do.

And to do so, only follow your conscience.

WHEN our Republic was created, the system introduced the possibility for any incumbent president to run for a second election.

However, our good and respected Founding Fathers did not have a magical ball to see where the future would go.

They could not have imagined in their wildest dreams the way communications have evolved nowadays, the existence of an ever invasive and easy internet making communications instantly and globally widespread.

Having an incumbent president run for a second election, is something totally unfair and that should be stopped.

Everyday the man is in office, is free advertising, free communication, free Air Force One at his disposition, free airwaves whenever he may feel like it... all promoting his cause to get re-elected.

That, plus, in this case, the whopping 1 billion dollars planned for his actual campaign.

And, in the current case, think of all the measures he has been already taking, be it with immigrants, and all other communities...

This, is not what the Founding Fathers would have given their blessing for. Nor should we do so.


It's as if Americans have received an overdose of anesthesia to keep them in a very convenient lethargic state.

Thursday, May 19, 2011, the American president unveiled his views on Middle Eastern affairs, and as he mention one after the other Muslim country in the region, he did so more as their representative rather than the President and Commander-in-Chief of the United States of America.

Obama first devoted attention to Al Qaeda, as if the group was the only source, center and end of all the pernicious goals emanating from the larger Muslim radical agenda whose flagship plan is to conquer the world for Islam and which is happening via the infiltration of sharia through the quiet and silent invasion of the West by multitude of Muslims who have already establish domicile in forlorn, forsaken towns with almost unknown names, throughout Western countries, in Europe and the United States.

Now, a short list of countries in the Middle East that Obama and his Administration have chosen purposefully to betray in favor of ignorant, uneducated and yet, appears, pro-democracy, masses -that one day, the next generations, may well find out they were supported by Iran, Saudi Arabia, to mention just a few of the main possible standard bearers of radical extreme, sharia Muslim countries.

Egypt, Bahrain, Libya, Syria, Yemen... are a few of the regimes who were so far keeping a fragile but somehow longstanding status quo, not allowing a total takeover by the extremists that now are the ones 'aspiring', according to Mr. Obama, to a "democratic" lifestyle and government. Really?

For instance, he mentioned Tunisia, which in his words is going in the "right" direction though the next day, the Arab media reported an interview with Tunisian Muslim Brotherhood leader Rachid Ghannouchi in which he calls for and predicts the end of Israel. So much for that.

Obama spoke of 'self-determination', that people in the region had nowhere to turn, no 'honest' judiciary to hear their case, no 'independent' media to hear their voice, no 'credible' political party to represent their views. He spoke of their lack of self-determination, no chance of making their lives what they will. Hmm... that sounds so familiar.

He also referred to the region's economic situation where despite some oil produced wealth in some countries, he said, knowledge, innovation are lacking. Right.

Then, just as any spin doctor, the president of the United States of America dared saying, that in the last six months, the Muslim world of the Middle East has being swept by a "moral force of non-violence" that, again according to him, "the people of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades..."

Let's see. "Moral force of non-violence?" And, if that's so why did he feel the need to take bankrupt America, without consulting the American Congress, to a risky, expensive, needless war in Libya...?

So, "the people of the region have achieved more change in six months than terrorists have accomplished in decades..." This implies those peoples he's speaking about are fulfilling the terrorists agenda -only with less violent means but violent nonetheless, or otherwise just plainly watch TV, if the American government authorizes MSM to show us what's going on in Libya, from where by the way we are getting almost no news on a daily basis. Am I wrong...?

We would be remiss if we would forget to honor someone who has witnessed what President Obama calls "non-violence" first hand: CBS journalist Lara Logan, who was brutally and repeatedly raped in Egypt by 200 Muslims at the Tahrir Square during the so-called "peaceful" celebration of resignation of 30-year Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, last February 11, 2011.

If that's called "non-violence" then we won't be surprised by the lack of condemnation of advancement of sharia law under which stoning, mutilation, honor killing and more are legalized.

But, what many seem to have overheard is Obama saying "...though these countries may be at great distance from our shores, we know that our own future is bound to this region by the forces of economics, security, by history and by faith."

Anybody home?

Has anybody realized that this man is saying that you and I are connected to this region by forces of faith? Which faith?

Not the Jewish faith -because minutes later he was in sum going to call for the destruction of Israel... sorry to be as blunt as he...

The faith Mr. Obama is referring to, is Islam, the faith of the Muslim world -which, according to him, we share with them.

Why would he say that? Maybe his/their plans are going so well that Americans in their stupor won't see even if they look at it right in the eyes.

In sum, the assured tone that Mr. Obama used to elevate the level of evolution within the Muslim world of the Middle East geographical region was astoundingly optimistic despite signs that are showing exactly the opposite direction as those Muslims are stirring gears towards radicalism and jihadism.

Doing so, the American president is willfully choosing to endanger the country -and at the same time he keeps stroking his ego with the now constant mention of the premeditated wait-and-capture of Osama Bin Laden just days after he launched his re-election campaign.

The man is taking dangerously by the hand the silent and complacent American people, who appear as willing and ready to jump the precipice with their fatalist, hypnotized attitude...

Next, the president did what no other president has never been done in all the History of the United States.

Obama asked Israel to give up territories regardless of so many factors: We are speaking of a geographically tiny country, our ally and a country slightly bigger than New Jersey, not the size of France or even Panama for that matter -just giving random examples.

He is also speaking here of giving up territories that millennia long have had an outright Jewish history. He is also speaking of giving up many landmarks that associate their history to the Jews and Israel.

Most of all, he is also speaking of reducing that tiny land to indefensible borders...

Why would the key ally of Israel ask for something so impossible? Simply because American President Obama has a true connection to all Muslim countries that surround Israel and who have no will to see this tiny country in their midst.

The president's actions unveil the agenda closest to his heart, none other than the support of the uprising and upcoming tide of Muslim extremism in and from the Middle East.

This particular item in his agenda is the number one despite the American people's will that he safeguard, protect and advance America and American interests.

What's appalling, however, is the state of inertia in which the American people is choosing to live and not react.

The issue of Israel is not only about that tiny country but about what it represents. If you think of contributions that any human group has made to the advancement of Western civilization -simply put: There is no other group that has by far made so many contributions to the well-being, betterment and advancement of mankind than the Jewish people and Israel, who with their work, their sweat and their blood but also with their brilliance and will, have and continue to bring the most positive inventions to improve Western standards of living.

Betraying one's own key ally is not in the interest of any country. Strategically speaking is a self-defeating move. In military strategy it is called a suicidal move.

It's time for Americans to decide if they really want to jump to the bottom of the precipice.

“If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed;
if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly;
you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival.

There may even be a worse case.

You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

I wish I could take you all on a visit to my country and show you what Europe has become. It has changed beyond recognition as a result of mass immigration. And not just any mass immigration, but mass immigration driven by Islam.

Islam wants to establish a state on earth ruled by Islamic sharia law. Islam aims for the submission - whether by persuasion, intimidation or violence - of all non-Muslims.

The results can be seen in Europe.

Islam is an ideology of conquest. It uses two methods to achieve this goal.

The first method is the sword. The second method is immigration.

Islam's founder Muhammad himself taught his followers how to conquer through immigration when they moved from Mecca to Medina.

This phenomenon of conquest through immigration is called al-Hijra. In Europe we have been experiencing al-Hijra for over 30 years now. Many of our cities have changed beyond recognition.

Just a few weeks ago, the British press revealed how the so-called London Taliban is threatening to kill women who do not wear veils in the London borough of Tower Hamlets.

In some neighborhoods Islamic regulations are already being enforced, also on non-Muslims. Women's rights are being trampled. We are confronted with polygamy, female genital mutilation, and honor-killings where men murder their wives, daughters or sisters because they do not behave in accordance with Islamic rules.

Polls show the influence of those Muslims who live according to Islam's requirements is growing, especially among young people.

Among 15-year-old German Muslims, 40 percent consider Islam more important than democracy.

Among Muslim university students in Britain, 40 percent support sharia. One in three of those students considers it legitimate to kill in the name of Islam.

Muhammad personally participated in the ethnic cleansing of Medina, where half the population once was Jewish. On his deathbed, he ordered his followers to cleanse Arabia of all Jews and Christians.

To this very day, Christian and Jewish symbols are prohibited in countries like Saudi Arabia.

If you wear a cross or a kippah in certain urban areas in Europe today, you risk being beaten up. In the capital of my own country, Amsterdam, a tram driver was forced to remove his crucifix from sight - while his Muslim colleagues are allowed to wear the veil.

In June 2008, the Christian church authorities in the Danish town of Arhus decided to pay so-called protection money to Islamic so-called security guards who ensure that churchgoers are not harassed by Islamic youths.

On March 31, 2010, Muslims entered the Roman Catholic cathedral of Cordoba, Spain, and attacked the guards with knives. They claimed the cathedral was theirs.

Last month, the bishops of Sweden sent out a letter to priests advising them to avoid converting asylum seekers from Islamic countries to Christianity, because the converts would risk losing their lives.

Meanwhile Jews are no longer safe on European streets. In Amsterdam, the city of Anne Frank, Jews are again being harassed. Even political leaders acknowledge that life has become unsafe for Jews in Holland. Do you know what they said? They advised Jews to emigrate.

What is needed is a spirit of resistance.


Because resistance to evil is our moral duty. This resistance begins with expressing our solidarity with Christians, with Jews - indeed to all people worldwide - who are the victims of Islam. There are millions of them.

We can see what Islam has in store for us if we watch the fate of the Christians in the Islamic world, such as the Copts in Egypt, the Maronites in Lebanon, the Assyrians in Iraq.

Almost every day, churches are torched and Christians are killed in Islamic countries.

Rivers of tears are flowing from the Middle East, where there is only one safe haven for Christians. You know where that is.

The only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe is Israel.

That is why Israel deserves our support. Israel is a safe haven for everyone, whatever his or beliefs and opinions. Israel is a beacon of light in a region of total darkness. Israel is fighting our fight.

The jihad against Israel is a jihad against all of us. If Israel falls, we, too, will feel the consequences. If Jerusalem falls, Athens, Rome, Amsterdam - and Nashville, Tennessee - will fall.

Make no mistake: Islam is also coming for America. In fact, it is already here. America is facing a stealth jihad, an Islamic attempt to introduce sharia law bit by bit.

Last March, a judge in Tampa, Florida, ruled that a lawsuit against a mosque involving the control of $ 2.4 million should proceed under Islamic law.

This is also how it started in Europe. If things continue like this, you will soon have the same problems we are currently facing.

Geert Wilders is the parliamentary leader of the Party for Freedom, the third largest political party in the Netherlands. This column was adapted from a speech he gave last week at the Cornerstone Church in Nashville


Israel's image in the European media deteriorates as we speak and throughout the globe, Zionism has become a controversial word, simply because it is misunderstood, it really escapes the mindset of people worldwide. As it is, Zionism and Israel are seen by unaware minds, as symbols of their own ghosts and are being willfully used to deform realities of a country and of a people that has done nothing but bring advancement, prodigy to mankind and has enlightened the world.

Israel is likely the only country in the world, whose mere existence is feared and envied so much that it is been threatened by a large part of world population.

Part of this situation is possible thanks to a weak Israeli leadership -do we think at any point that France or Japan for that matter would ever put up with such a situation?

And yet although the debate centers around whether Israel has been good and right for the world... weighed against the interests of the Muslims, the media largely ignores the benefits Israel has brought to the world; one of the least talked about aspects of the country is its incredible and unique contribution to science.

In terms of inventions Israelis have given the world the Uzi, the mobile phone (partly), camera chips for phones, SMS messaging and the first anti-virus software, but not only that.

Recently, Israelis scientists, engineers and technicians have invented a device that helps quadriplegics to stand up and walk -something completely unthinkable.

And the newest news is that Israelis now have created a device that allows air passengers to keep their shoes for the regular pre-flights inspections.

And the list is endless...

Israel has the highest percentage of home computers per capita and the third most educated workforce on earth, with 12 per cent holding advanced degrees.

The country also has more engineers and scientists per capita than any other country around the world, and has more companies quoted on the high-tech NASDAQ stock exchange than any other country outside the United States, more than all of Europe, India, and China combined.

Israelis are also at the forefront of medical research into heart transplants, strokes and Hepatitis C.

Incredibly, some Israelis are even at work on a space mission, which could make that tiny state of seven million people the third country to land a probe on the Moon.

Jews on the Moon? Conspiracy theorists won’t know where to start.

In the last ten years Israeli scientists have won five Noble prizes in the sciences, a tally bettered by only four other nations, while per capita Israel produces more economists than any other country.

Israel also publishes a huge number of Scientific and Technical Journal Articles, some 16,470 in 2005, more than the entire Arab world and Iran combined.

And the Jewish state produces an astonishing number of inventors. Last year in the United States Israelis registered 1917 patents, just below Italy which has 58 million people) and the Netherlands with 15 million and way ahead of its neighbours Saudi Arabia (58) Turkey (45) Egypt (20) Kuwait (14) UAE (9) Iran (8) Lebanon (5) Jordan (1) and Syria (0).

Israel itself grants 2500 patents a year, putting it in the top 20 of all countries and again more than all its neighbours combined. Israel is number one in the world for medical device patents per capita and number four for biotechnology patents per capita. And its biotechnology exports are now worth $6 billion a year.

Regardless of whatever anybody does, THESE are the facts.

While terror and mayhem come from the Muslim world, and Muslim Palestinian terrorists on a daily basis distribute terror one way or another -with the silent complicity of their leaders -there, in tiny ISRAEL, scientists, inventors, students, find the way to continue being creative and to contribute to the betterment of mankind...

Washington (UPI) May 6, 2011

By Staff Writers - The U.S. Department of the Army is transferring all of its Joint High Speed Vessels to the Navy under a Memorandum of Agreement signed Monday.
The U.S. Department of Defense said the intent of the memo is to clarify relationships, identify the roles and responsibilities and provide an implementation plan.

In addition, this MOA formalizes and delineates the management, leadership and requirements sponsorship roles required to deliver the capability encompassed by the JHSV to the combatant commanders.

"This agreement with the Army demonstrates our commitment to reducing redundancies and saving money for the taxpayer," said Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus. "This is a responsible step that will ensure our military remains the most formidable fighting force the world has ever known."

Initially, the JHSV program was envisioned to have five of the first 10 JHSVs assigned to the Army and the remainder to the Navy. However, at the Army/Navy Warfighter Talks in December last year both services agreed to transfer the Army's five JHSVs upon signing of this MOA.

All 10 JHSVs will be assigned to Navy.

"The transfer of the JHSV is about aligning our core competencies, while at the same time realizing a measure of managerial efficiency," said Army Secretary John McHugh. "We look forward to continued cooperation with the Navy as we determine how to ensure this capability can best support the combatant commanders."

The Military Sealift Command will crew the JHSVs with civilian or contract mariners. Joint High Speed Vessels will be used for fast intra-theater transportation of troops, military vehicles and equipment



Dog, mankind's only true friend, is as ever present and loyal as any human will ever be unable to find in another fellow human.

It is therefore completely understandable that in their recent success capturing and killing Osama Bin Laden, our heroes, the Navy Seals, had along their side one of their specially trained canine friends...

May 8, 2011: It came as a surprise to many when it was revealed that the U.S. NAVY SEALs that recently attacked an al Qaeda hideout in Pakistan, and killed Osama bin Laden, took a military dog along with them. It's generally unknown that over 600 military dogs are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. The U.S. military has used specially trained dogs in all its wars in the last century. Military dogs proved to be particularly useful with Arabs, who consider dogs somewhat "unclean" and scary. American military dogs are kept pretty clean, but they are scary, and one military dog can control a lot of otherwise hostile Moslems, although the main use of the dogs is not crowd control, but detecting hidden explosives or people. That's what the dog sent on the bin Laden raid was apparently there for (to find explosive traps, or people trying to hide.)
The SEALs, who evolved from the combat scuba divers of World War II, seem an unusual match for military dogs. While SEALs undergo intensive amphibious training, they are highly adaptive, and have been serving in landlocked Afghanistan for a decade. In doing so, they have come to appreciate military dogs. In fact, the SEALs have even developed special equipment for their military dogs. Last year, they introduces a a special camera system that is incorporated into a vests often worn by their combat dogs. The camouflaged vest weighs 571 grams/20 ounces and the camera 314 grams/11 ounces. The dog handler has a handheld viewer/recorder with a 76mm/3 inch screen. The camera has night vision and the batteries on the camera and viewer last 30 minutes. The range of the camera/viewer data link is 1,000 meters in the open, or 200 meters if there are a lot of walls to go through. This enables the SEALs to send their dog into a building or cave and see what the dog sees. The vests also include a small loudspeaker that enables the handlers to give their dog commands. The SEAL dog vests cost about $22,000 each.

SOCOM (Special Operations Command, which the SEALs work for) is one of many military users of highly trained dogs. In the last decade, the United States military has used several thousand military dogs in combat zones. There has been a lot of new gear developed for the military dogs. Some of the new gear is just updates of existing stuff. For example, war dogs have long been equipped with non-armored vests. These vests are inexpensive (under $100) and just provided protection from the elements and a way to identify the dog. More recent vest designs come with many special features. Some vests have compartments on the inside for the insertion of cold packs (soft, flat plastic bags containing a chemical that, when activated, becomes very cool). Since dogs do not deal with heat as effectively as humans (dogs don’t sweat), and Iraq and Afghanistan can be very warm in Summer, the cold packs can prevent heat stroke. There are also attachments on the vest to enable the dog to be dropped by parachute, or hauled up via a rope. Vests now allow identifying badges to easily be added, and more of them have various grips for the handlers to pick up an injured dog. One vest design even has straps so that a handler can carry the dog on his back like a pack. The vests hinder the dogs' mobility a bit, especially when they are jumping. But the dogs have quickly adjusted. The armored vests, depending on the degree of protection, cost from $500-$1,000. Some handlers prefer unarmored vests, because they are lighter (about a pound/.5kg) than the armored vests (up to 3.5kg/7 pounds), and less constrictive.

Normally used for sniffing out explosives, crowd control and other police type work, the dogs are also trained to work while wearing custom made Kevlar body armor. These vests will protect the dogs from stab wounds, shell fragments and some bullets. While the heaviest Protective Vests weigh about 3.5 kg, for a 41 kg (90 pound) German Shepard, this is about the same burden as the 7.7 kg/17 pound vest worn by soldiers and marines. The expense of the vests is justified because of the value of the dogs. The dogs take over a year, and some $60,000, to train. So spending some money on life saving equipment for the dogs is a good investment.

While there are about 600 American military dogs in Iraq and Afghanistan, there are currently over a thousand of these dogs in U.S. military service. During World War II, some 10,000 dogs were taken into military service, and in the Vietnam war, some 4,000 dogs were trained and sent overseas, where 281 were killed in combat. The marines used 327 dogs in the Pacific during World War II, and 29 died in battle. The marines found the dogs particularly useful for detecting Japanese troops, who were expert at camouflage, and setting up ambushes.

Until 2000, when the law was changed, military dogs were used until they were about ten years old, then killed. It was thought that the retired military dogs could not adapt to family life. But decades of police, and some military experience, with dogs living safely with their handlers and family members, finally caused the policy to be changed. Dog handlers had long urged that retired dogs be allowed to stay with their handlers, or be put up for adoption. http://tinyurl.com/3ufb6af

When our children are newborns and are small, we hold their hands and guide them in life. As they grow, we keep our watchful eye, mind and actions shielding them from dangers and exposing them to life slowly and nurturing them along the road.

Contemporary societies are plagued with all sorts of dangers which are ever so increasing as our precious children grow -whether it is bullies, alcohol, drugs, sex, lack of religion and so much more.

They finish high school and at 18 years old, when they are not even ready, we have to give up on them.

But, I did not do that. I always kept a watchful eye on my child.

18 is by large not a mature age, not in this corrupted contemporary world.

Motherhood is the most coveted job in the world. It should be recognized and paid for. Not include it in the package of a marriage.

A Mother should have her own income for all the job she does.

I have had alternatively both. Not both at the same time.

And, I can assure everyone that the job performed as a Mother is the hardest and materially speaking most unrewarding job.

Being a Mother in all societies has never been recognized to the height of its importance which is a vital one for the future of any country.

So, on behalf of the world, we must apologize to Mothers and give them recognition by beginning to fight for their rights.

Mothers need to have constant courses to improve and perfect their skills -and they need to have a salary -maybe a bonus of 50% increase to the husband which will be exclusively for her and her personal needs.

Countries need Mothers, the future of the world is in their hands...

All that said, Military Mothers go beyond the call of duty when, the day their child says to them: "I must go, be with them," as my child told me one night last year... we react first with disbelief, telling ourselves, I must not have heard well, he/she certainly did not mean what I think he did...

But, the truth comes soon to the surface -and our beloved children confirm they do want to go, not only talk the talk but most of all they want to walk the walk...

Yes, as our body temperature lowers, our heartbeat runs crazy, and we feel our blood stopping to run through our bodies, we hear them, our own flesh and blood, telling us they want to risk their own lives to save their country and people...

So, we ask, "are you sure...?" And, we hear them say: "Yes..." So, we smile and we give our wholehearted support because we know now we have raised great people who need us now, more than ever, to be strong, optimistic and make them feel secure for the endeavor ahead, especially for those who choose or are chosen for the honor to belong to elite forces...

And, it's only our love to our children and our trust in G-d's will that sustain us as we know the nature of the enemy -who can only be beaten by people of goodwill who understand that a country's safety demands more than sophisticated weapons -beyond that, victory demands the best warriors on Earth:

Warriors with Mothers who understand them and support them, praying to G-d to bless them, protect them and shield them -making light for them in the darkness, making them noiseless when they walk through enemy lines...

That's a Military Mother...


When G-d created man he gave him a woman to love and to honor, to share and rejoice... and to make children out of their love.

When G-d created woman, He placed her children right in her womb, to carry with her 9-months long, so she could actively participate in their creation and most of all in their physical, emotional and spiritual development.

When we, women, give birth to our children, we look with apprehension to a wild world, having hard times delivering our babies from the quasi-total safety of our wombs in the unknown of life.

Sure, parents are both, man and woman. But woman has to be the lioness watching over her cubs ready to protect them against one and all.

Women bear the responsibility of raising her children. Intuition is a key element in the inner life of a woman. That's the key that will guide her instincts in the protection and survival of her children.

Unfortunately, women's liberation movements have, misleadingly, advocated the so-called 'liberation' of women... but, actually, liberation of what...? Liberation of the duties to raise their children and face the obligations of a home.

Sadly, women's liberation movements have promoted a selfish attitude in women who unfortunately have seen the role of Mother in a belittling manner, when in reality they are the ones who create the leaders of a nation or just name it.

That became more obvious to me than ever before during my visits to the Muslim world, where I addressed many times groups of women, especially business leaders.

On those occasions, I challenged those ladies to review the education of their young sons. "Do you want to continue creating generations of men like yours...?" was one of my questions.

Because, by my own experience I was able to overcome most of the unwanted influence and got to raise an amazing child, whose values are those of a great human being -but it was me, the Mother who worked for it. Those are fights that are ours.

You do your best. The rest is in G-d's Hands.

G-d bless all Mothers and allow them to appreciate that wonderful and creative responsibility they are given and entrusted as custodians of the well-being of generations to come.

Leaders are not born. They are made.

And Mothers are instrumental for that endeavor.


While Obama celebrates catching Bin Laden's swift capture/killing and he uses the outcome for the benefit of his ambitious bid to regain the presidency once more in a row, he conspicuously has been diverting attention exclusively to Al Qaida and to Osama Bin Laden. Why that? Very simple, because he wants to transform this into an issue only between us and al Qaeda and Bin Laden, white washing the responsibility of the Muslim world that by their silence tacitly is accomplice of the vast and constant terrorism they export our way for almost a half a century.

Obama's other weapon is another one, subtle, almost not identified by the majority of Americans who live in permanent lethargic condition.

We read news that "Obama says he told bin Laden assaulters, 'Job well done'"

Excuse me? Assaulters...? That's what he disgracefully calls our super-patriots, those Navy Seals who are the nec plus ultra of manhood, patriot and hero, all combined in each one of them...

And, Americans do not even make any comment about this... How disgraceful, to have a so-called president refer to our heroes like that -and American conservatives who see it as natural...

Thursday, May 5, 2011


Just as New York awaits Obama to address them and the world from Ground Zero, Osama Bin Laden's target of choice as he masterminded the attack on America in the most evil way, against New York City, the West's symbol of success and power.

While the success of the operation, capture of Osama and subsequent expeditious killing, is evident -there are too many issues that are not satisfactory.

One is the fact that the government might have known of OBL's hideout whereabouts for many months already.

Naturally, Pakistani military is 'washing their hands' so as not to appear accomplices in keeping the "secret".

Once caught, OBL was given a mortuary cleansing to "purify" his body and then was sent diving in the middle of the ocean... for which naturally, our vessels had to be mobilized, as OBL was caught in Abbottabad, northern Pakistan, nowhere close to the Indian Ocean. So, how did they manage to do all this so quickly that at 2:10 AM they were sending Osama's body inside the Ocean...

Obama, the specialist in refusing to show his birth certificate, is now refusing to show any pictures from Osama Bin Laden dead...

Many questions remain unanswered and rather than bringing closure, this situation is going to create more doubt as time goes by.

One thing will be clear though: Nothing has changed with OBL's dead...

Nothing at all...

WHEN our Republic was created, the system introduced the possibility for any incumbent president to run for a second election.

However, our good and respected Founding Fathers did not have a magical ball to see where the future would go.

They could not have imagined in their wildest dreams the way communications have evolved nowadays, the existence of an ever invasive and easy internet making communications instantly and globally widespread.

Having an incumbent president run for a second election, is something totally unfair and that should be stopped.

Everyday the man is in office, is free advertising, free communication, free Air Force One at his disposition, free airwaves whenever he may feel like it... all promoting his cause to get re-elected.

That, plus, in this case, the whopping 1 billion dollars planned for his actual campaign.

And, in the current case, think of all the measures he has been already taking, be it with immigrants, and all other communities...

This, is not what the Founding Fathers would have given their blessing for. Nor should we do so.
