Can John Kerry really be serious that he knows better what makes Israel safe than Israel’s own Prime Minister?

Susan Rice, President Obama’s National Security Advisor, told TV talk show host Charlie Rose that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming speech before Congress about Iran is “destructive” to the relationship between the United States and Israel.

What is going on?  The National Security Advisor is just that – an advisor. It is not a cabinet post, nor a position of authority. It …

I quote Rudy Giuliani..”I do not believe that the president loves America…he doesn’t love you. And he doesn’t love me. He wasn’t brought up the way you and I were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country.” End of quote. I agree with Giuliani. I believe, if carefully thought through, most people will, even though they won’t say it.

I published the following letter in May, 2012.

I have been very concerned for a long time about the strange and mysterious …

martin-luther-king-jr

Dr. King was outspoken in his support of Israel and today there is a street named for him in Jerusalem.

In April 1963, Martin Luther King, Jr. landed in jail in Birmingham, Alabama for violating a local injunction against demonstrations.

Sitting in jail, he learned that local white clergy advised against “outsiders coming in,” calling King’s activities “unwise and untimely.”

In response, King wrote his famous “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

In the pages long, handwritten letter, he lays out the logic and theology …

The wire services – AP, APTN, AGFP, Reuters etc. – the SOURCE of the news for broadcasts, print media, on-lines news, etc., have been purchased by Arab oil money.  News stories across the globe reflect their bias.  This bias doesn’t just jeopardize Israel.  It sacrifices the TRUTH on myriad stories; any story that doesn’t fit with the Arab Muslim perspective.

Here’s a story from Brian of London about the “news” circulated by the international wire services that falsely claims that Israel has released …

TIME TO INSIST ON EQUAL JUSTICE FOR ALL

Whatever happened to values?  Whatever happened to outrage?  Whatever happened to righteous anger?  Whatever happened to the right to privacy?  The simple answer is that a majority of Americans don’t care about them and perhaps that is the way the power brokers want it.  Being conditioned to desire convenience and easy living, the typical American citizen allows those qualities to be less than important.

With the right to privacy, the loss of may be easy to describe.  The government and …

law

To mark International Mother Language Day this Saturday, translation company 7Brands has taken a look at the World’s Weirdest Language Laws. Amongst some of the more trivial laws, like South Korea requiring people taking its citizenship tests to sing the national anthem, are reminders of the ways that language has been a controlling force throughout history. From King Henry VIII diminishing the role of the Welsh language in the 15th century to the dizzying levels of bureaucracy protecting French in …

Loretta Lynch

Who is looking out for black interests — the Black Caucus or the white Republican they call a racist?

The Congressional Black Caucus will forgo no opportunity to retard black progress in America and undermine the ideals that were once understood to be the goals of the civil rights movement.

In the latest example, the caucus has issued a press release calling Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) a racist for opposing confirmation of Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. Attorney General.

Paul earlier issued …

THERE AIN’T NO FREE LUNCH

The scene keeps heating up in Albany and Preet Bharara, the US Attorney, keeps adding fuel to the scandal bonfire.  Sheldon Silver has been indicted, and a local daily newspaper has mentioned that another eleven politicians have been arrested, indicted or convicted of illegal or unethical practices.  This is the first dozen and there is the promise that they will not be alone.  For most citizens, the reaction is “about time.”

New York has been regarded as having a corrupt …

Look at each picture for several seconds.

First time watching fireworks:

First time being dunked into water that’s way too cold:

First time getting caught in a bubble shower:

First time driving through a dark tunnel:

First time chatting with a puppet:

First time finding a new recipe in a cooking magazine:

First time forgetting how spoons work:

First time seeing ice cream:

First time meeting a puppy:

First time having their toes licked by a cat:

First time watching New Year’s fireworks:

First time living in a hollowed-out fruit:

First time “drinking” …

“First the Saturday people; then, the Sunday people.”

The ethnic cleansing of Jews from the Middle East and North Africa PRECEDED the present day persecution of Christians in the region.

Know that Israel is on the FRONTLINES of the GLOBAL JIHAD!  Fail to support Israel at your OWN peril!
