Can there be any doubt any more that the the current US administration, the EU, the UN (with its “Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”), the PA and Iran are now all working hand in hand and increasingly hard to weaken Israel, while re-strengthening Iran, just as the world’s anti-Semites have always wished would happen?
The decision to create such weapons lies in the ‘political will’ of its leaders.” – Jerusalem Post (online) reporting on an “annual US intelligence assessment [that] was presented to the [US] Senate Intelligence Committee on Wednesday.”
is akin to offering Zyklon B gas to Hitler as long as he promised not to gas the Jews. How could Obama’s initiative be otherwise? His actions belie his intent.” Continue reading “President Obama’s path to allow Iran to have nuclear power
“Israel faces serious threats from Iran, its Sunni rivals and their proxy terrorist armies inside and around its borders, but its biggest threat may come from its own left.” – Daniel Greenfield (more)
P.S.: As if she wanted to illustrate Daniel Greenfield’s conclusion, Labor Party head Shelly Yechimovich said today in the Israeli parliament:
“Why the talk of the ‘apocalypse?’,” […] “We survived Pharaoh in Egypt, we lived through the destruction of the First and Second Temples, the Holocaust, the War of Independence, the Yom Kippur War, and much more. The Jewish people are not in danger.”
See? The Jewish people are not in danger because they lived through almost everything imaginable and unimaginable. The Jewish people might have to suffer a little bit more in the near future, but on a worldwide scale as many as two thirds of them survived even the Holocaust, for instance. That’s why the Jewish people are not in any danger even now.
Who cares about Jewish individuals. Who cares about Israel. Who cares about a second Holocaust, prepared and perpetrated by Iran.
Theodor W. Adorno’s categorical imperative saying that everything should be organised in a way that Auschwitz cannot repeat itself has been turned into its opposite: especially since the beginning of the “Arab spring”, everything is increasingly being organised in a way that it is most probable for it to happen again soon.

– Last sentence of a recent post by Adina Kutnicki, “wrapped around” an analysis by Louis Rene Beres.
Als Schriftsteller ist Günter Grass ein Schmied, der reiz- und formlose Klumpen zusammenhämmert, mit denen man kaum mehr anfangen kann, als sie Leuten über den Kopf zu hauen.

And never did I deviate from my marching orders. – Günter Grass
Among all those who have commented on Günter Grass’s recent propaganda “poem” against Israel, some have criticized that not enough attention has been paid to his proposal of disarming the Jewish State. Their judgment appears now to have been slightly premature. After the anti-Semitic tirade of the former Waffen-SS member was immediately lauded by a representative of the Iranian regime, the Israeli intelligence news site DEBKAfile reported that “Iran’s ‘new initiatives’ place Israel at [the] center of nuclear talks” and that, among other things, in the upcoming ‘nuclear talks’ in Istanbul, Continue reading Iran appears to have adopted the ‘Grassist imperative’ as a basic condition for a ‘hudna’ with the West
Iran übernimmt ‘grassistischen Imperativ’ einem DEBKAfile-Bericht zufolge als Kernbedingung für eine Hudna mit dem Westen
Wer sagt noch, Günter Grass’ Forderung, den Staat der Juden wirksam zu entwaffnen, sei in der jüngsten “Debatte” leider völlig untergegangen? Nachdem der frühere SS-Mann für den kürzlich von ihm “in Gedichtform” abgesonderten antisemitischen Dreck umgehend von höchster iranischer Stelle gelobt wurde, berichtete DEBKAfile gestern – unter dem Titel “Iran’s ‘new initiatives’ place Israel at center of nuclear talks” – unter anderem: Continue reading Erster weltpolitischer Erfolg der von Günter Grass, der Süddeutschen Zeitung, La Repubblica u. a. initiierten Kampagne zur Entwaffnung Israels?

While the Obama administration has not reconciled itself to the futility of curbing Tehran’s nuclear buildup through diplomatic means, most Israelis have given up hope that the international sanctions can dissuade the Islamic Republic from acquiring the means to murder by the millions. Israel’s leadership faces a stark choice—either come to terms with a nuclear Iran or launch a preemptive military strike. Continue reading Iran’s Nukes and Israel’s Dilemma

The so-called “Arab Spring” continues to transition into a “Christian Winter,” including in those nations undergoing democratic change, such as Egypt, where the Muslim Brotherhood and the Salafis dominated the elections—unsurprisingly so, considering the Obama administration has actually been training Islamists for elections. Continue reading Muslim Persecution of Christians: November 2011
Iran announced on Wednesday, Dec. 14, that it had completed the transfer of its nuclear facilities underground, including its uranium enrichment centrifuges, and that the Iranian nuclear program was now safe from US and Israeli attack. The Iranian Revolutionary Guards Passive Defense Division [sic], Gholamreza Jalali, said: “Our vulnerability in the nuclear area has reached the minimum level.” And if circumstances demand it, he said, uranium enrichment facilities would be placed in more secure locations. Israeli Defense Minister Barak has repeatedly warned that once it was buried in underground bunkers, Iran’s nuclear infrastructure could no longer be attacked; nor would it be possible to find out what was happening there. His meaning was that that [sic] no one would know when Iran started building nuclear bombs in deep underground chambers. Continue reading Oops
Like all people who only have the best intentions, these days “the only real journalist in Malta,” Daphne Caruana Galizia, must be as happy as she hasn’t been since the death of Osama bin Laden (Al Qaeda). Finally Gaddafi seems to have left Tripoli, and now, as “Dee says” on Ms Caruana Galizia’s blog, “the mad dog and his cubs” have yet only to be “smok[ed] out” from a few more “filthy cellar[s]” in which they might be hiding now and in the near future. And since everybody else, in a great historical moment like this, just should not worry all that much, but first of all be happy and full of solidarity, another member of Daphne’s blog ummah, “A. Charles,” recommends from the comment section of one of Daphne’s recent posts: “The next thing which people of goodwill should do is to celebrate this victory in Valletta on Saturday.” (Should only, and otherwise be strongly ashamed and hide well, because we have a real liberal democracy here at the time, while under Mintoff that thing would still have been far more compulsory.) Continue reading Celebrating the victory of “Libyan freedom” (Daphne Caruana Galizia) in Tripoli (Libya) and in Valletta (Malta)
The Dhimmi Times of Malta, today:
The Palestinian National Authority has thanked Malta for its help in the evacuation of 13 Palestinians from Libya last month.
In a letter to Foreign Affairs Minister Tonio Borg, Palestine’s Foreign Affairs Minister Riad Malki said that the Maltese government and people have always placed Palestine close to their hearts.

Are these the next civilians the West is ‘responsible to protect’?
I.e. after these Libyan opposition guys – or at the same time?
(Just one example: “The people of Ar Rajbaan”)
Or will it be Hamas, directly, instead of, as until now, indirectly?
I know I am not being very fair, but the first link to the “Interim Transitional National Council”‘s Site I saw – the link above the second video points to the “Allegiances” page of that “Council” – was promoted without any scruples by someone – Daphne Caruana Galizia – who thinks she is fighting for “Libyan [!] freedom” and accuses anyone who maybe just does not want to let himself and his country be dragged into a fight between Islamic tribes, as a coward; and the only thing which most of the current “experts'” evaluations and many of the Western politicians’ decisions seem to be based on are good intentions, and that doesn’t bode well at all indeed.
As far as the the poor suppressed “civilians” of Bahrain are concerned, it seems that – to paraphrase two famous anti-Islamophobic ideologues and community or, maybe “better,” Ummah organizers – Barack Hussein Obama (USA) and, to get repetitive here too, Daphne Caruana Galizia (Malta), the first (un-)State ‘on the right side of history’ in taking the lead there is not France, but Iran:
Shia-News, a site associated with Ayatollah Mesbah Yazdi (a hard-line Shiite Twelver and an influential figure in the suppression of Iranians during their uprising to protest the fraudulent presidential election of 2009), is registering volunteers to participate in suicide bombings against Saudi interests around the world. Hundreds have already registered. Reports from inside Iran indicate that an alert has gone out to the Revolutionary Guards Quds forces throughout the world to prepare for attacks on Saudi establishments.
