Obama gives $148 million to "Palestine"

From Jihad Watch / Posted by Robert Spencer

They shouldn't get a penny unless and until they end the genocidal antisemitic rhetoric. "US provides $148 million to Palestine," from World Bulletin, August 19 (thanks to Maxwell):
US will provide financial support of $148 million to Palestinian government. 
Palestinian Prime Minister Rami el-Hamdallah has signed a financial support agreement "$148 million aid transfer from US administration to Palestine" with US consul general in Palestine Michael Ratni, office of Prime Ministry said in a written statement.
Palestinian government will receive financial aid twice within 2013, of which the last will be used to buy fuel from Israel.
It was also stated that Ratni said US provided Palestine aid worth of $1.3 billion since 1994, which were intended to close the budget deficit of existing government.
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus had a message last week for outspoken conservatives who support strict immigration enforcement policies: Shut up.

Yes, the head of the RNC is more concerned about protecting the party's Hispanic vote-pandering campaign than protecting law-abiding citizens from the devastating consequences of illegal immigration.

At the RNC's annual summer meeting in Boston, Priebus complained that openly advocating self-deportation policies during last year's election season was "horrific" and that rule-of-law rhetoric "hurts us." Yes, really.

So is it OK to discuss during off-year election cycles? Leap years? Weekends? Holidays? Can the GOP sensitivity police let us in on their approved immigration discussion calendar?

Priebus has yet to explain what exactly is "horrific" about telling foreign rule-breakers that they shouldn't wait for the government to eject them, and that the right thing for them to do would be to abide by our laws and go home on their own. This is an exceedingly and ridiculously polite policy suggestion, given how most other countries treat illegal line-jumpers, border-crossers, visa overstayers and deportation fugitives.

But Priebus treats the idea as if it were an international human rights violation.

Tellingly, the RNC chair has no response to the families of all races, classes and creeds who have raised their voices against America's perilous deportation abyss, systematic non-enforcement and coddling of illegal alien DREAMers who have wreaked violence and havoc on their lives.

The relatives of murdered Los Angeles teen Jamiel Shaw posed a question to Priebus on Twitter after the RNC chair's remarks at the GOP event last week touting minority outreach and diversity: "How many Americans Have U Talked To Whose Kids were Killed by illegals?"

Priebus has not answered.

As I first reported in 2008, 17-year-old Jamiel was gunned down by 19-year-old illegal alien Mexican gang member Pedro Espinoza. Young Espinoza was smuggled into the U.S. illegally when he was a toddler, just like all of the DREAMers the open-borders propagandists are always extolling in sweeping terms.

One day after he was released from jail for serving time for assault with a deadly weapon, this known illegal alien gang-banger was back on the streets. The feds failed to deport him. Local authorities failed to detain him. Espinoza celebrated his freedom by shooting star student athlete Jamiel execution-style in the head for carrying a red Spider-Man backpack, which the Latino 18th Street Gang thug mistook for gang colors. Jamiel's mother, Army Sgt. Anita Shaw, had to travel home from serving in Iraq on her second tour of duty to join her family in burying her son.

Illegal alien teen killer Espinoza was sentenced to death last fall. Grieving parents Anita and Jamiel Sr. and their loved ones have valiantly kept Jamiel's memory alive by supporting efforts to repeal dangerous illegal alien sanctuary laws, spotlighting lapses in detention and deportation policy, calling attention to violent illegal alien gangs targeting blacks in L.A, and opposing reckless bipartisan amnesty proposals.

As Mr. Shaw told Breitbart's Matthew Boyle: "Just because you were brought here under no fault of your own doesn't mean you give amnesty to everybody." Amen. And instead of phony promises of enforcement later for blanket amnesty now, we need immediate reform of our bloodstained, loophole-ridden, under-funded and systemically sabotaged criminal alien detention and deportation system. Pronto.

Jamiel Shaw's family members are vigilant community organizers against illegal immigration. But their activism will never be hailed by Hollywood, The New York Times op-ed page, the White House or the RNC's elitist open-borders outreach panderers. Mr. Shaw, who testified at a House GOP panel hearing on the horrific consequences of our failed deportation policies earlier this summer, warns astutely that Republicans are "up to something" as they prepare to cut deals with open-borders Democrats in conference.

I think he's right. I also believe it's no coincidence that the RNC is now publicly marginalizing those who dare to challenge the rose-colored DREAMer propaganda of McCain-Graham-Rubio-Ryan-Mark Zuckerberg-La Raza -- just as the forces of Amnesty Incorporated conspire behind closed doors.

Question: Why won't Priebus acknowledge the horrific suffering of the Shaws and countless other families who have been harmed by illegal alien nightmares? The political timing is inconvenient.

Innocent lives be damned.

Obama Dithers, Kerry Bungles Egypt Crisis

Donald Lambro / Townhall Columnist 
 
WASHINGTON - Saudi Arabia's surprising decision to support Egypt's military leaders in their bloody crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood has split the Arab world in two.

The unequivocal Saudi move to back Egypt's secular military rulers, who toppled the Muslim government in a coup, left the Obama administration without a clear policy in the Middle East war that threatens our long alliance with the Saudi kingdom.

From the beginning of an Egyptian crisis fast turning into a religious civil war, the Obama administration has been caught flat footed and confused in its response, taking contradictory positions throughout the course of the conflict.

As the White House, seemingly incapable of deciding what its policy should be, struggled over whether to end its $1.5 billion-a- year military aid to its long term Egyptian ally, Saudi rulers swiftly acted to make that issue moot.

The Saudis flatly announced Monday that any retaliatory withdrawal of military aid by the U.S., or any other Western countries, would be covered by the Saudi government.

Calling its Egyptian neighbor "our second homeland," Saudis foreign minister, Prince Saud al-Faisal, said the Arab kingdom would do whatever it takes to make sure Egypt is not destabilized by foreign repercussions. "Concerning those who announced stopping their assistance to Egypt or threatening to stop them, the Arab and Islamic nation is rich with its people and capabilities and will provide a helping hand to Egypt," Faisal said.

Before the fiery riots that led to the overthrow of the Muslim government headed by President Mohamed Morsi, the escalating crisis was seen as a battle between a Muslim theocracy and a more secular- leaning segment of Egypt's younger population.

But since the crackdown, when Morsi was deposed and placed under house arrest, it's become clearer that the battle has really been between Morsi's repressive Muslim movement that had terrorist groups within their ranks and moderate Egyptians who want more economic and religious freedom.

That view was bluntly voiced Friday in a foreign policy address by aging Saudi King Abdullah who praised the Egyptian military's crackdown and accused the pro-Morsi protesters of "terrorism, extremism and sedition."

Several days later, the military arrested the spiritual leader of the Muslim Brotherhood movement that toppled the autocratic presidency of Hosni Mubarak. State television showed Mohammed Badie being driven away to prison Monday night.

That led to heightened "suspicions that [Mubarack's] former military-backed regime has returned to power," the Washington Post reported this week. That remains to be seen.

But as the emerging civil war in Egypt turned more and more chaotic by the day, the Saudis' unexpected embrace of Egypt's military leadership -- dividing the Muslim world -- has inserted a whole new dimension into the crisis.

On one side were the Saudis, joined by Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. On the other, supporting the Muslim Brotherhood's government, were Qatar and Turkey, Iran, the despotic Assad regime in Syria, and Arab terror groups in nearly half a dozen Arab countries.

Veteran Middle East analysts saw the Saudi move as a dangerous high-wire act fraught with political and security risks. "This is an enormous gamble for the king," says Christopher Davidson, professor of Middle East history at Durham University in England. "Saudi Arabia is putting itself in direct confrontation with the Muslim Brotherhood, which has broad regional sympathy across the region."

Potentially more troublesome was the Saudis' decision to cross swords with the Obama administration as the White House and State Department dithered and delayed over what to do next.
 
Is the long alliance between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia now in danger because of the foreign policy incompetence of the West Wing and the new, untested Secretary of State John Kerry?

But the Saudi decision to side with Egypt's military, even at the risk of wounding relations with the U.S., betrayed how much they feared the Muslim Brotherhood, and their terrorist elements, running the largest and most powerful Arab country in the region.

"It's not about expansionism. The Saudis are doing these things out of fear rather than greed," Gamal Soltan, a political science professor at the American University of Cairo told the Washington Post.

Meantime, don't look for any coherent policy response from Secretary of State Kerry, whose bungled performance in his first big foreign policy test has been an international embarrassment.

Soon after Egypt's military arrested Morsi and took over his government, it took about three weeks before Obama's administration acknowledged that a coup had taken place. At one point, Kerry was telling the press in Pakistan that the military was merely "restoring democracy." When that remark sparked an uproar from the Muslim Brotherhood, Kerry sought to back away from his remark, calling for all sides "to get back to a new normal." Whatever that is.

The administration's Keystone Cops handling of the crisis, stumbling from one mixed message to another, has drawn condemnation and ridicule across the foreign policy community.

The administration's efforts to navigate its way through the violent military crackdown were "complicated by what many Egyptians see as mixed and confusing messages coming from Washington, exacerbating already high anti-American sentiment and threatening broader U.S. goals in the region," the Associated Press reported last week.

This region-wide crisis called for skillful statecraft and experienced presidential leadership, both of which have been AWOL in Washington ever since the bloodshed in Egypt began.

Manning sentenced to 35 years in WikiLeaks case



FORT MEADE, Md. — Army Pfc. Bradley Manning was sentenced Wednesday to 35 years in prison for giving hundreds of thousands of secret military and diplomatic documents to WikiLeaks in one of the nation’s biggest leak cases since the Pentagon Papers more than a generation ago.

In a brief hearing, military judge Col. Denise Lind didn’t offer any explanation for the sentence she gave Manning, 25. The former intelligence analyst was found guilty last month of 20 crimes, including six violations of the Espionage Act, as part of the Obama administration’s unprecedented crackdown on media leaks.

But the judge acquitted him of the most serious charge, aiding the enemy, an offense that could have meant life in prison without parole.

Manning could have gotten 90 years behind bars. Prosecutors asked for at least 60 years as a warning to other soldiers, while Manning’s lawyer suggested he get no more than 25, because some of the documents he leaked will be declassified by then.

The native of Crescent, Okla., digitally copied and released more than 700,000 documents, including Iraq and Afghanistan battlefield reports and State Department cables, while working in 2010 in Iraq.

He also leaked video of a 2007 Apache helicopter attack in Baghdad that mistakenly killed at least nine people, including a Reuters photographer.

A potentially more explosive leak case unfolded as Manning’s court-martial was underway, when former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden was charged with espionage for exposing the NSA’s Internet and telephone surveillance programs.

At his trial, Manning said he gave the material to the secrets-spilling website WikiLeaks to expose the U.S. military’s “bloodlust” and generate debate over the wars and U.S. policy.

During the sentencing phase, he apologized for the damage he caused, saying, “When I made these decisions, I believed I was going to help people, not hurt people.”

His lawyers also argued that Manning suffered extreme inner turmoil over his gender identity — his feeling that he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — while serving in the macho military, which at the time barred gays from serving openly. Among the evidence was a photo of him in a blond wig and lipstick.

Defense attorney David Coombs told the judge that Manning had been full of youthful idealism.
“He had pure intentions at the time that he committed his offenses,” Coombs said. “At that time, Pfc. Manning really, truly, genuinely believed that this information could make a difference.”

Prosecutors did not present any evidence in open court that anyone was physically harmed as a direct result of Manning’s actions. But they showed that al-Qaida used material from the helicopter attack in a propaganda video and that Osama bin Laden presumably read some of the leaked documents, which were published online by WikiLeaks. Some of the material was found in bin Laden’s compound when it was raided.

Also, government witnesses testified the leaks endangered U.S. intelligence sources, some of whom were moved to other countries for their safety. And several ambassadors were recalled, expelled or reassigned because of embarrassing disclosures.

Prosecutors called Manning an anarchist and an attention-seeking traitor, while supporters have hailed him as a whistleblower and likened him to Daniel Ellsberg, the defense analyst who in 1971 leaked the Pentagon Papers, a secret history of U.S. involvement in Vietnam, to The New York Times and other newspapers.

That case touched off an epic clash between the Nixon administration and the press and led to a landmark Supreme Court ruling on the First Amendment.

The Obama administration has charged seven people with leaking to the news media, while only three people were prosecuted in all previous administrations combined.

Among those seven is Snowden, whose leak has triggered a fierce debate over security vs. privacy and strained U.S. relations with Russia, which is harboring him despite demands he be returned to this country to face charges.

In addition, the Justice Department has obtained the records of phones used by Associated Press journalists and emails of a Fox News reporter.

Also, a federal appeals court ruled recently that New York Times reporter James Risen cannot shield his source when he testifies at the trial of a former CIA officer accused of leaking information about a secret operation.

A lawyer for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, Michael Ratner, has suggested Manning’s conviction could make it easier for federal prosecutors to get an indictment against Assange as a co-conspirator.

But other legal experts said the Australian’s status as a foreigner and a publisher make it unlikely he will be indicted.

It's official...


Egypt Court Orders Release of Mubarak


Officials say an Egyptian court has ordered the release of ex-President Hosni Mubarak, but it's not immediately clear whether the prosecutors will appeal the order.

The Wednesday decision comes in a hearing on charges against Mubarak of accepting gifts from a state-owned newspaper, the last case that has kept the ailing leader in detention.

It raises the possibility that Mubarak will walk free, a move that is likely to fuel the unrest roiling the country after the autocratic leader's successor was removed in a military coup last month. The officials spoke anonymously because they are not authorized to speak to the media.

Mubarak, 85, has been held since April 2011. He's now on trial for the killing of protesters during the 2011 uprising against him and other charges.

Newsmax: Rep. Ros-Lehtinen: Administration's Handling of Benghazi 'Unconscionable'
By Cathy Burke and Kathleen Walter

"And now they're back," she said. "It is unbelievable. No one has paid a price at all for the terrorist attacks in Benghazi resulting in the deaths of four American citizens, including our ambassador."

Ros-Lehtinen said she wholeheartedly supports the appointment of a select committee to investigate the Sept. 11, 2012 attack — and charged the administration's "intimidation" has kept Congress from learning the truth.

"We have seen that they've kept witnesses away from us," she said. "There's a feeling of intimidation in the State Department and throughout the agencies. 'Don't come forward, don't come testify, you will suffer, your career will suffer.'"

She charges it was the administration's "false narrative," that fostered the fear.

"They want to convince the people . . . that these radical Islamic terrorists are not out to destroy Israel and the United States," she said. "That was a political agenda and it was a political response to a real security threat and that's why this level of intimidation continues throughout this administration."

The administration generally has no coherent anti-terrorism policy, she added.

"The Obama administration believes that having a drone policy is a solution," she said.

"That is not a military readiness capability and in 10 years, in 15 years down the road we're going to be paying the price for not being . . . military ready in the way that we should be.

She also decried the Obama administration's previous support of Egypt President Mohammed Morsi and said the U.S. should cut off aid and "stop pouring money down a rat hole."

"This administration has tried to sell the American public on this philosophy that the Muslim Brotherhood, they're made up of all kinds of people and individuals and there's just not one guiding philosophy," she said. " Oh there is a guiding philosophy and it's anti-US, it's anti-democracy, it's anti-Christian, and it's anti-female, and it's anti-everybody who doesn’t agree with their dogma.

"So we should cut off the spigot. It's time to stop the money drain that we're just wasting our money giving it to governments that don't support democracy."

Ros-Lehtinen, chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on North Africa and Middle East, said as far as diplomacy goes, Kerry is clueless.

"His Department of State is concentrating on a peace treaty between Israelis and Palestinians at the expense of everything else," she said. "The Israeli-Palestinian peace issue is an important issue but not when the whole Middle East and North Africa is blowing up.

On the contentious issue of immigration, Ros-Lehtinen said she's "cautiously optimistic" for passage of a reform bill.

"If we do nothing, what we're accepting is the status quo and the status quo is that we have over 11million people here who already are illegally here and that is a form of amnesty," she said, adding that securing the nation's borders are a "number one" priority.

But she said the nation must also respond to the "dreamers" who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children by creating a bill that would allow them to become citizens, serve in the military, and go to universities.

The congresswoman insisted Republicans are increasingly in support of immigration reform.

"We've seen the changing demographics of the United States and we see that the Republican Party can really be the home for this Hispanic community because we're a family-centered community, we're a faith-centered community, we believe in small businesses, we believe in limited government, and these are the kind of issues and values that the Hispanic community believes in and those are the values of the Republican Party," she said.

On the healthcare front, Ros-Lehtinen said the Affordable Care  Act is sure to be "an economic disaster," noting she voted "40 times to defund, dismantle Obamacare." But she said she hoped Congress would find a way to stop the health law without a government shutdown.

"People don't want the government to shut down but, at the same time, there's a great sense of anxiety in our small business community and young people who are going to be paying a lot of money for their insurance premiums," she said.

The Cuban native said she's still hopeful Democracy will come to the island nation, but blasted the administration for the "windfall" they have allowed there.

"They don't deserve the breaks that the Obama administration is giving them," she said.

"It's been a windfall for the Castro regime these years that Obama has been president. What a shame. Democracy is going to come but it's going to come because we're going to get tough on the regime and help the Cuban people rid themselves of this dictatorship."

Egypt Proves Obama To Be An Idiot Or An Islamist
by / Personal Liberty Digest

“It was not a religion that attacked us that September day. It was al-Qaida.” — Barack Obama

While on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard last week, President Barack Obama condemned the bloodshed in Egypt. He demonstrated his anger over the recent violence that has left more than 1,000 people dead in the past week by declaring that America’s armed forces will not participate in this year’s war games with Egypt.

Click the link to see and hear Obama's statement:
http://personalliberty.com/2013/08/21/egypt-proves-obama-to-be-an-idiot-or-an-islamist/

That’s right; Obama is canceling Bright Star, a biennial war exercise Washington and Cairo have organized since 1981.

The President must think this will bring Egyptian protestors and the military to their knees. To me, it’s like catching your teenage sons in a fistfight and yelling: “No baseball!”

If that doesn’t fix the crisis, the President just might double-dog dare Egypt. I expect the Egyptian army, which is now in control, and the Muslim Brotherhood, which is fighting for control, to say: “So what?”

Obama has made it obvious that he has no desire to suspend nearly $2 billion in annual aid to Egypt — a fortune when you consider that America owes $18 trillion — even as reports surfaced (later claimed false by the Administration) that aid payments had been stopped.

The good news is that Obama appears to not want to put American boots on the ground in Egypt. (Take that, Senator John McCain!) Instead, Obama is going to keep his fingers crossed and hope that Egypt and the rest of the Mideast doesn’t explode. If that happens, it could mean Obama will have to develop fossil fuels in North America. I can already picture the outrage from the greens. As for the neocons who never met a war they didn’t like, it will be heresy.

But events are spinning out of control in the Mideast, and Obama seems clueless when it comes to shaping them. That is either because he is weak or because he understands all too well what sustains Islam: a perpetually tribal and backward region that seems to require Sharia law or a ruthless dictator like Gamal Abdel Nasser, who seized power in Egypt in 1954.

For 65 years, Mideast nations have been ruled either by a dictator or Islamic sectarianism. Dictators like Nasser, Anwar Sadat in Egypt, Saddam Hussein in Iraq and Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, the shah of Iran. More recently, we now have the Muslim Brotherhood battling for control of Egypt and the still-unrepentant Taliban in Afghanistan.

Author Lawrence Wright wrote about “Sayyid Imam al-Sharif, he was the former leader of the Egyptian terrorist group al-Jihad, and known to those in the underground mainly as Dr Fadl” in a story for The Guardian:
The Essential Guide for Preparation appeared in 1988, as the Afghan jihad was winding down. It quickly became one of the most important texts in the jihadis’ training.
The guide begins with the premise that jihad is the natural state of Islam. Muslims must always be in conflict with non-believers, Fadl asserts, resorting to peace only in moments of abject weakness.

The Compendium of the Pursuit of Divine Knowledge, which is more than 1,000 pages long, starts with the assertion that salvation is available only to the perfect Muslim. Even an exemplary believer can wander off the path to paradise with a single misstep. Fadl contends that the rulers of Egypt and other Arab countries are apostates of Islam. ‘The infidel’s rule, his prayers, and the prayers of those who pray behind him are invalid,’ Fadl decrees. ‘His blood is legal.’ He declares that Muslims have a duty to wage jihad against such leaders; those who submit to an infidel ruler are themselves infidels, and doomed to damnation. The same punishment awaits those who participate in democratic elections. ‘I say to Muslims in all candour that secular, nationalist democracy opposes your religion and your doctrine, and in submitting to it you leave God’s book behind,’ he writes. Those who labour in government, the police and the courts are infidels, as is anyone who works for peaceful change; religious war, not political reform, is the sole mandate. Even devout believers walk a tightrope over the abyss. ‘A man may enter the faith in many ways, yet be expelled from it by just one deed,’ Fadl cautions. Anyone who believes otherwise is a heretic and deserves to be slaughtered.
Of course, Obama will never ever speak of this inconvenient truth. But that does not make it untrue.

Humpty Dumpty Sat On A Wall

To believe Islam can be reformed would mean we have to swallow all that garbage that was sold by the George W. Bush Administration and his triad: Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz — or, as I call them, The Three Stooges.

Dubya neocons believed that they could engineer Venice on the Euphrates. More than a decade later, we can see how that turned out.

Yet the neocons remain undeterred. Just as McCain still believes America should and could have won the war in Vietnam, Cheney proclaims he has nothing to apologize about after a political career that dates back to the Richard Nixon Administration. To this day he maintains that the Bush Administration’s policies in Iraq were correct.

Cheney really believes the $1 trillion spent on Iraq was money wisely spent. He ignores that the Mideast may erupt into one big Iraq.

American blood and money was wasted to secure Mideast oil. A dividend was those fat military contracts. Now, 12 years after 9/11, our fortunes remain tied to the fortunes of the Mideast. If the region blows apart, it will have a huge economic impact on America. Before it is over, all of Obama’s horses and all of Obama’s men will not put America back together again.

The prospect of the Mideast burning should shake Democrats to their very core. Obama may have to embrace natural gas. He may have to accept the Keystone Pipeline from Canada.

And if Obama refuses to double down in the Mideast, the neocons won’t know what to do with themselves. There are three aircraft carrier battle groups that are on permanent station in the Mideast. Obama may have to put them up for sale on eBay — especially if he continues to give billions of dollars in U.S. aid to repressive Islamic regimes.

Islam-Aid Is A Sinister Tax Upon America

The most prominent Muslim next to the Prophet Muhammad was a professor, philosopher and mystic: Imam Abu Hamid al-Ghazali. He lived 900 years ago, which makes him postmodern in the Muslim world. Ask the Huffington Post, which ran this headline two years ago: “Al Ghazali: 900 Years Later and Still Relevant.” (It’s just another example of the liberal media’s burning need to placate Islam. If you think I am wrong, find a secular publication that claims Thomas Aquinas is still relevant.)

Farah Jassat, who wrote the story, had much to say about al-Ghazali and how “[h]e underwent a traumatic spiritual crisis riddled with doubt and confusion.”

What happened to al-Ghazali? He walked out on his students. He sold all of his possessions and moved about in the wilderness in search of wisdom and truth. If this seems familiar, it is probably because you watched the 1970s TV series “Kung Fu.”

In later life, al-Ghazali’s most important teachings were on taxation — not the taxation of Muslims, of course, but the taxation of Christians, Jews and Sabians. How else was a deadbeat professor going to make himself and Islam rich?

To do just that al-Ghazali laid out his taxation plans for the dhimmi, or non-Muslims. He declared that they were obligated to never mention “Allah” and that all must pay the jizya.

Jizya was a poll tax that non-Muslims had to pay their Muslim superiors. Al-Ghazali determined that non-Muslims were an inferior people. This came from one of the greatest Muslim minds ever, a man whose teachings are still celebrated today.

Yet what jizya really boiled down to was a protection racket no different from what the Mafia ran in America. Non-Muslims paid off Muslims or they faced reprisals.

According to Mark Steyn, author of America Alone: The End of the World as we Know It, this is the prime reason why the Prophet accepted non-Muslims in the Holy Lands. They were heavily taxed by their Muslim masters, and it provided a constant revenue stream.

Steyn writes:
[E]ventually almost all Muslim societies tend toward the economically moribund, if only because an ever-shrinking infidel base eventually wises up…
But the Muslim word has effortlessly extended the concept of the jizya worldwide. If you’re on the receiving end, it’s possible to see the American, European, and Israeli subsidies of the Palestinian Authority as a form of jizya. Or even the billions of dollars Washington has lavished on Egypt, to such little effect (other than Mohammed Atta coming through the window). Not to mention every twenty bucks you put in the gas tank.
When it comes to 21st century jizya, Obama is all in. Each year, the United States spends $25 billion on Persian Gulf oil. In addition to the $2 billion set aside for Egypt this year, the United States will give nearly $4 billion to Afghanistan and more than $3 billion to Pakistan. This is amazing because reportedly, when it comes to support in the United Nations, Egypt votes against the United States 79 percent of the time and Pakistan votes against the U.S. 75 percent of the time.

The neocons in the Bush Administration may have believed that Iraq was bought and paid for, thus giving the United States the right to conduct social engineering.

That is not the case for Obama, who is ever so willing to continue the largest transfer of wealth in human history. Billions of our tax dollars go to Islam each year in the hope that everything works out. It is either the dream of an idiot or the ambition of an Islamist.

As for Obama’s claim that we were not attacked by a religion but by an organization, imagine if in 1942 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had declared that America was not at war with Germany but with the National Socialist Party. It’s outrageous and it is frightening.

Yours in good times and bad.
Op-ed:
Egypt at a crossroads and Obama abandons the call for freedom 
By: Diane Sori

While White House spokesman Josh Earnest continues to publicly deny that the US has cut off aid to Egypt, the office of Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), the head of the Appropriations State and Foreign-Operations Subcommittee, claims that military aid to Egypt has indeed been temporarily cut off as the State Department admits that our government still has NOT delivered $585 million in Egyptian aid, about half of the total promised $1.5 billion aid package, for the fiscal year ending on September 30th.

Claiming that the Obama administration is reviewing its options in regards to Egypt, Leahy said that administration lawyers decided it was best “to observe the law restricting military aid on a temporary ‘day-to-day’ and ‘case-by-case’ basis” (by the way there is NO such law), deciding that the (non-existent) law did not require a public announcement on whether an actual coup had taken place (but acting as if it did)…which would have immediately required a cutoff in aid under our laws and has become a sticking point both here in the US and in Egypt itself.

Yet by suspending direct military aid…meaning weapons and certain types of economic aid…aid desperately needed to help the Egyptian military disband and bring to justice the Muslim Brotherhood…this most vile of American presidents has now allowed the door to be left open for the Muslim Brotherhood’s return if NOT to direct power to at least becoming an ongoing insurgency who will join ranks with al-Qaeda (and to some degree they already have) and try to turn Egypt into a failed state.

And if that happens, Barack HUSSEIN Obama built it and owns it.

Remember also that Obama recently canceled the joint US/Egyptian military exercises that had been set for next month (exercises desperately needed because of the rise in violence in the Sinai Peninsula, an area critical to keeping the peace with Israel as laid out in the Camp David Accords), and that the Pentagon, on Obama’s orders, has held up the transfer of the remaining promised F-16 fighter jets to the new temporary Egyptian government but had NO problem sending them to the Muslim Brotherhood ‘puppet’ government of Mohamed Morsi.

And so this man has once again shown his true colors as to where his loyalties lie…for they lie NOT with the Egyptian people and the Egyptian military who are trying to rid their country of those who expound sharia law under a strict islamic doctrine…Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s loyalties lie with the very group destroying Coptic Christian churches all across Egypt shouting ‘allah-hu akbar' as they do so.

And now with the Egyptian military announcing that they’re NOT only going to protect the Coptic Christians but rebuild every Coptic church burned and destroyed by the Muslim Brotherhood (which will NOT only assure Christian support for the military, which they already have for the most part, but will also send a powerful message to western Christians that the military is indeed the protector against radical islam), our so-called ‘Christian’ president is turning his back on what should be his Christian brothers, and is going to stop supporting the Egyptian military simply because they’re in control and NOT his beloved Muslim Brotherhood.

I guess it’s ‘once a muslim always a muslim’…and NO attending Mr. G-D America’s church for 20 years will prove otherwise.

And all this proves that Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s foreign policy in regards to Egypt…in fact in regards to the entire Middle East…is tantamount to his voting ‘present’ while in the Senate…as in this man has NO clue whatsoever of the damage to the cause of Egyptian freedom he's doing or if he does he just does NOT care. This man and his misguided policies are turning Egypt into another Iran of sorts...the kind that would make Jimmy Carter proud...and that is dangerous and sad indeed, because he still will NOT admit that islamic terrorism is the root cause of all the problems.

And make NO mistake that the Egyptian military is fighting islamic terrorism (‘islamic terrorism’… two words Obama will NEVER say let alone admit to existing)…terrorism of the worst kind for it’s in-your-face terrorism…announced with fanfare as in the Day of Rage, and executed to inflict as much carnage and death as possible (weapons were found at the two sit-ins that were dismantled and destroyed by the military)…terrorism of the kind that is the hallmark of al-Qaeda.

In fact, and something NOT generally known is that the military has already arrested and taken into custody the brother of al-Qaeda chief Ayman Al-Zawahri.

But…but…Obama said al-Qaeda is NOT in Egypt…that al-Qaeda is on the run…clueless…totally clueless.

And the military under General Abdel Fatah al-Sissi is trying to roundup and arrest as many of the Muslim Brotherhood and other terrorist leaders (including al-Qaeda leaders) as possible in an effort to reign in both the violence and rising death toll for they know that if a country has a large radical islamic population then the only government that can keep a semblance of stability is having the military in control, because it’s been proven time and again throughout the Middle East that a secular democracy as we know it and radical islam cannot and will NOT ever be able to exist peacefully together.

And that’s why Barack HUSSEIN Obama needs to butt out of Egypt’s affairs for the last thing Egypt needs right now as they're on the cusp of freedom is an islamic terrorist supporter telling them what they must do to run their own country...especially since the Saudis, who are also against the Muslim Brotherhood, have promised to make up any aid to Egypt that Obama cuts.

And so the nightmare that is currently Egypt continues...
