The List of Countries on the UN's 2017 Human Rights Council Is Unreal
Death sentences for apostasy, arbitrary detentions, extrajudicial killings, and systematic suppression of free speech are just some of the qualifications the countries elected by the United Nations to serve on its 2017 Human Rights Council have.

The Human Rights Council, mind you, is supposed to “uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights,” according to its mandate. Thus, one would think Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, China, Iraq, Cuba, Qatar, Burundi, and Bangladesh probably shouldn’t be members.
  • Saudi Arabia Expertise in human rights: Death sentences for apostasy and adultery; corporal punishment including flogging and amputation; judiciary controlled by regime; beheading more peoeple than ever before; arbitrary arrests of dissenters and minorities; no freedom of speech; jails blogger Raif Badawi.
  • Venezuela Expertise in human rights: Widespread arbitrary detention; imprisonment of opposition leaders; intimidation of journalists; torture; policies causing mass hunger and health catastrophe.
  • China Expertise in human rights: Denial of freedom of speech, religion, and association; extrajudicial killings; repression of civil society; discrimination against Tibetans and other minorities.

Van Jones: Muslim Brotherhood-linked Rep. Keith Ellison is future of Democratic Party
By Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch

 

Ellison has spoken at a convention of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Yet ISNA has actually admitted its ties to Hamas, which styles itself the Palestinian arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Justice Department actually classified ISNA among entities “who are and/or were members of the US Muslim Brotherhood.” It gets worse. In […]

Selfie footage of alleged Istanbul gunman as police hunt continues

Sky News, January 3, 2017 / THE GELLER REPORT

Police arrest about 12 suspects as they insist they are closer to identifying the man behind the New Year’s Eve attack.

New footage has been released which appears to show the suspected gunman in the Istanbul attack filming himself walking around the popular tourist destination of Taksim Square.

The video comes as police continue to launch raids in the hunt for the attacker who killed 39 people in a nightclub on New Year’s Eve.

Earlier, Sky News obtained footage of the suspect changing money at a foreign exchange booth in the Turkish city some time before the massacre.

Deputy prime minister Numan Kurtulmus said authorities are close to identifying the gunman after finding his fingerprints and getting a basic description of him.

It is reported that 12 arrests have been made in connection with the attack, which has been claimed by Islamic State.

The militant group hailed the “heroic soldier of the caliphate” who carried out the attack, which it said was in revenge for Turkish military involvement in Syria.

Op-ed
Abandoning Israel
By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio bit.ly/2cpXuRd

"Israelis do not need to be lectured about the importance of peace by foreign leaders." 
- Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu’s response to John Kerry’s speech which he deemed almost as unbalanced as last week's Security Council resolution that declared Israeli settlements illegal

Fact: Barack HUSSEIN Obama is the biggest mistake in American political history. His economic policies are a disaster but even worse are the foreign policy nightmares he has created...policies where our allies are now our enemies and our enemies are his friends.

Fact: a two-state solution regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict is not the answer and it never was. And why...there is no such thing as Palestinians...period. These made-up people were created by Yassir Arafat in the 1960’s to advance his PLO organization. The ‘so-called’ Palestinians are actually Jordanians...they hold Jordanian citizenship and passports as well as having Jordanian DNA...but shhh...the media, Obama, and his brethren do not not want you to know that.

Fact: Israel is but a tiny sliver of a country being a mere 8,000 sq miles, 260 miles at its longest, just 60 miles at its widest, and barely three miles across at its narrowest. The 22* unfriendly Arab countries...muslim countries... that surround Israel are about 640 times her size (encompassing 5,000,000 sq miles), about 60 times her population with said population occupying but one-sixth of one percent of the lands known as Arab lands. Yet tiny Israel with just 13 million people...13 million Jews...is deemed by both the entirety of the Arab world and by their brethren and operative in the White House...one Barack HUSSEIN Obama...as being "expansionists" and "aggressive" against all 250 million Middle East Arabs, and defacto against the 1.4 billion muslims worldwide.

Fact: the 22 Arab countries (members of the Arab League) all refuse to take in their fellow Arabs...the ‘so-called’ Palestinians. The population of the 22 Arab lands (this includes those muslim countries in Africa) is about 422 million people in total spread out over millions and millions of acres of largely unpopulated land yet they cannot find room for a mere 4.2 million of their brethren, but tiny Israel is expected to give up even more of their land...land just double the size of Rhode Island...for those wishing them dead. 

Fact: the only obstacles to any real peace in the Middle East is both the refusal of the ‘so-called’ Palestinians and their supporters to recognize Israel's right to exist, and the sad reality that the Obama administration coupled with his cronies in the U.N. have not only sided with and directly aided Israel’s enemies but have colluded with said enemies to bring about the Jewish state’s demise. 

And these facts bring us up to last week’s U.N. resolution vote condemning Israel for their settlement building in the occupied territories...territories rightfully gained in the ’67 War. And this vote...a stabbing in the back actually...was orchestrated and engineered by none other than the Obama administration. And how do we know this...we know this from both his own people and from others unexpected. 

First, this past Tuesday, Department of State spokesman Mark Toner said that Egypt and the Palestinians drafted the resolution and that the U.S. worked with them...again...he said the U.S. worked with them...on the language but only after the intention to go forward “no matter what” was made clear. And second, while Egypt had the sense to pull back their support for this...their original resolution...after speaking with both President-elect Donald Trump and with Benjamin Netanyahu himself, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported that Egyptian officials "might have leaked" new information that seems to give credence to at least some of the claims now being made by Netanyahu’s office regarding the U.S. working on and lobbying for the very resolution that condemned what they called "Israel's expanded settlements."

Now leaving the four anti-Semitic, anti-Israel countries of New Zealand, Senegal, Venezuela, and Malaysia to do the dirty work....and do the dirty work they did leading up to the fact that this past Wednesday, in his last press conference as Secretary of State, John ‘Swiftboat’ Kerry...a well-known anti-Semite and an integral part of pushing through Obama’s very bad nuclear deal... spewed words of hate towards Israel for 70 long minutes as he defended the U.N. vote...a vote that included making Judaism’s holiest site, the Western Wall, part of Palestinian occupied territory...and defended Obama’s stance on the Jewish state. And so with his usual deadpan look of disgust that he always has when speaking about Israel or about anything Jewish related, Kerry began with words to the effect that no administration has done more to protect Israel’s security than has the Obama administration.

If I could have I personally would have bitch-slapped Kerry across his filthy, lying, islamic-condoning face.

Kerry then started ripping into Israel...into Netanyahu...for his and their settlement building. But the most vile of words spewing from Kerry’s mouth came a bit later when he said that Israel can either accept a two-state solution or, and I quote, "If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both, and it won't ever really be at peace.” 

But what I want to know is who the hell does John Kerry think he is to tell the sovereign country of Israel what she can or cannot do...what she can or cannot be.

See John Kerry's most vile speech in full here:  

These words led Benjamin Netanyahu to push back and push back hard. In a blistering and hastily arranged televised statement coming just one hour after Kerry finished his hateful words, Netanyahu clearly alluded to the fact that he was not happy with Obama or his administration, that he and Israel are committed to resolving issues with the Palestinians only through direct contact not through U.S. brokered contact, and that he was ready to deal solely with President-elect Donald Trump, a man who has sided in total with Israel...a man who understands that the incitement of violence perpetrated by the Palestinians against the people of Israel is of their doing alone.

And what Netanyahu basically did...in a most statesmanlike way...was tell both Obama and Kerry to go to hell. And this came soon after his statement that, "We have it on absolutely incontestable evidence the U.S. organized, advanced and brought this resolution to the Security Council," promising to share the what he called "sensitive" intelligence with the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump. 

See Benjamin Netnyahu's response to John Kerry's speech in full here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3v5OGsxETE

Gives even more credence to the afore mentioned words of Department of State’s spokesman Mark Toner...gives more credence to the fact that Netanyahu knows well that peace in the Middle East will never be attained by isolating Israel, but can only be achieved through direct one-on-one negotiations between the Israelis and those who call themselves Palestinians.

But Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett went even further than Netanyahu in condemning Kerry’s words. Calling Kerry's speech "divorced from reality,” Bennett spoke in general of Obama and crew’s Mideast policies having left the entirety of the region "in flames” including the "genocide" in Syria; and that Iran is now "racing" towards a nuclear bomb after Obama and crew’s "abandoning" of Israel.

And U.S. pro-Israel groups...groups once in Obama’s camp...have now started chastising both Obama and Kerry for this most vile and deliberate slap in the face to Israel. In fact, in a statement coming right after the vote, AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee) stated it was “deeply disturbed by the failure of the Obama Administration to exercise its veto to prevent a destructive, one-sided, anti-Israel resolution from being enacted by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). In the past, this administration and past administrations have rejected this type of biased resolution since it undermines prospects for peace.”
 
Adding that, “It is particularly regrettable, in his last month in office, that the president has taken an action at odds with the bipartisan consensus in Congress and America’s long history of standing with Israel at the United Nations,” AIPAC also said that they wanted to thank President-elect Donald Trump and the many Republican and Democratic members of Congress who urged a veto of this resolution.

And in calling Kerry’s speech in specific nothing but a “failed attempt to defend the indefensible,” AIPAC said that contrary to Kerry’s claims that, “the [Obama] administration unconscionably failed to block [last week] was unfair, unbalanced and represented a profound departure from the policies of previous Democratic and Republican administrations for nearly the past forty years,” they made it very clear that this resolution was a deliberate and malicious move on both the U.N.'s and Obama's part to rein in Israel and most especially to rein in Netanyahu.

Also speaking about Kerry’s placing “overwhelming and disproportionate” blame for the failure of the peace talks squarely on Israel’s shoulders, AIPAC called him to task for failing to mention the many Israeli peace offers the Palestinians refused to accept including the many offers of resuming direct peace talks.

And Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, the dean and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center... said that “Secretary Kerry makes it sound like it’s the apartments and kindergartens built in Jewish communities on the West Bank that are the main impediment to a two-state solution, when he and those diplomats who voted for UNSC 2334 know that it is Palestinian terrorism, and the continued control of Gaza and the largest portion of the Palestinian population by terrorist Hamas that is the main roadblock to a true peace.”

And Republican lawmakers are now chiming in not only on the actual vote but on Kerry’s speech as well. Here are but a few examples regarding the vote: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan described the U.S. abstention as “absolutely shameful.” Rep. Nita Lowey described the abstention as a “stain on the United States’ long and consistent record of defending Israel against one-sided UN Security Council resolutions.”  And Texas Senator Ted Cruz spoke directly with Netanyahu after the vote assuring him of strong support for Israel in Congress and that he and Senator Lindsey Graham are proposing a bill that no U.S. dollars will go to the U.N. until this vote is reversed. And Florida Senator Marco Rubio said of Kerry’s speech, “Secretary Kerry's anti-Israel speech undermines America's moral standing” as well as issuing the powerful statement below.

 
But it’s not just Republicans who are furious with Obama and Kerry...here are a few of the two dozen Democrats now publicly speaking out against the stabbing of Israel in the back. Virginia Senator Mark Warner said he was “dismayed that the Administration departed from decades of U.S. policy by not vetoing the UN resolution regarding Israeli settlements.” Pennsylvania Senator Bob Casey said “I called on the administration to veto the U.N. resolution on Israel. I am disappointed that the U.S. delegation did not use veto power on the Security Council.”  

And New York Senator Chuck Schumer, the incoming Senate Democratic leader, in criticizing the U.N. vote stated that he is “Extremely frustrating, disappointing and confounding that the Administration has failed to veto the UN resolution.” As for Kerry’s speech Schumer issued this statement: “While Secretary Kerry mentioned Gaza in his speech, he seems to have forgotten the history of the settlements in Gaza, where the Israeli government forced settlers to withdraw from all settlements and the Palestinians responded by sending rockets from Gaza into Israel...this is something that people of all political stripes in Israel vividly remember...While he may not have intended it, I fear Secretary Kerry, in his speech and action at the UN, has emboldened extremists on both sides."

But the bottom line is that both Kerry’s speech and the, I believe, Obama orchestrated U.N. resolution itself, were nothing but Obama’s laying the groundwork for the Levant to come to fruition as Israel, the ancestral home of the Jewish people since the time of Abraham, would now become an indefensible country...laying the groundwork for a created Palestinian homeland to become a Hamas controlled, Iranian backed terrorist state...with the icing on the cake being the dividing of Jerusalem in two...something we know Benjamin Netanyahu will never allow to happen. 

And with rumors now surfacing that John Kerry is actually finalizing a document that the Obama administration hopes will form the basis for a U.N. Security Council resolution that officially recognizes a Palestinian state before his presidency comes to an end on January 20th, there will be no question that it will indeed include both the dividing of the land of Israel and its eternal capital Jerusalem. And this very possibility was fueled on by Kerry’s most vile speech...a speech that actually might have lighted the flames of an all-out war throughout the entirety of the Middle East and maybe even beyond.

And just maybe this has been the goal of Barack HUSSEIN Obama all along for from the fires of hell the Caliphate would then be born.
