Why Are Christian Churches Bashing Israel?

That's the question Italian journalist Giulio Meotti is asking.

With all due respect to my Catholic friends (and my wife), somebody needs to sit the Pope down and explain the facts of life to him. No, I am not talking about the birds and bees. I am talking about what is happening to Christians in the Middle East. Meanwhile, he is prattling on about climate change and a Palestinian state.

As for these Protestant churches like the Presbyterian Church USA and the Methodist Church of the UK, they are beyond shame.  They seem to think they will all be safe if the proverbial alligator gobbles up Israel first.

Of course, there are the leftist Jews who align themselves with the Palestinians against Israel. They are also hoping they will live in peace with the alligator once Israel is gone. They are so wrong.

Pro-Palestinian Indoctrination at Boston University

Somebody needs to tell Boston University that Hamas is a terror organization.

Education? No, it is indoctrination, pure and simple.

The Clinton-Blumenthal Connection: What the Media Is Missing

This article first appeared on Eagle Rising.

The emergence of e-mails between ex-Clinton administration hatchet man Sidney Blumenthal and Hillary Clinton on her private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is troubling for a variety of reasons. While the media is focusing on the appropriateness (or lack thereof) of Ms. Clinton receiving e-mails on a private server from Blumenthal on the topic of Libya, they are missing another critical point. That is Sidney Blumenhal's son, Max Blumenthal.

Max Blumenthal is a journalist by trade, but in recent years has pretty much discredited himself with his fanatical obsession and activism against the state of Israel. These days, he pretty much makes his living writing and speaking about the "evils" of Israel vis-a-vis the Palestinians, whose cause he supports. Max is also a supporter of the Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, which has gained particular traction on college campuses.

To give an example of just how unhinged this character is, he made a spectacle of himself in Berlin last year when he went on a rampage through the Parliament (Reichstag) building over the fact that a speaking appearance of his was cancelled.

Here is the point that the media seems to be missing: If it is troubling for Ms. Clinton to be getting and passing on e-mails from Sidney Blumenthal providing information about Libya from a friend of his with business interests in that country during a tumultuous point in time, could it be that Sidney was also passing on tidbits about our ally Israel from his son Max-a fanatical enemy of that country?  

Is that not a matter of concern? Shouldn't somebody in the media or Congress be asking Ms Clinton or Sidney Blumenthal about that?

"Tanya" Speaks for PEGIDA in Sweden

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

On June 27,  PEGIDA, the European movement against the Islamization of the West, held a rally in Malmo, Sweden. Below is a speech by a Danish woman identified only as Tanya. It is sub-titled in English. It is over minutes long, but well worth a listen. Behind the barricades she is jeered by counter-protesters. As always, I invite my Muslim readers to weigh in with their comments.

There is yet hope in Scandinavia.

In San Francisco the Chickens Come Home to Roost-Once Again

Out here in California, San Francisco and Los Angeles both pride themselves as "sanctuary cities". That means they practically welcome illegal aliens, More specifically, they don't cooperate with ICE when it comes to the illegal aliens that go through their respective justice systems. That means that illegal alien who get arrested for crimes often go through the local justice system and when they are released from jail, ICE isn't notified.

This was brought home with great force in recent years when a high school football star, Jamiel Shaw, was shot down and killed on a sidewalk near his home by an illegal alien gang member who had just been released from jail with no notice to ICE.

The same year (2008) , another illegal alien gang member (MS 13) just out of jail in San Francisco shot and killed a man and his two sons in a road rage incident.

You would think these cities would learn, but they don't. Now we have another innocent person shot to death in San Francisco by an illegal alien who, in this case, has been deported five times.

I don't know the details about this latest killer's (Francisco Sanchez) 5 deportations, but the last one was in 2009, and he was recently released from jail even though ICE had requested he be turned over to them. A federal hold means that the locals don't simply release prisoners on the street, but turn them over to the feds when they are finished with them. To be fair, the locals don't want to hold prisoners any longer than their local charges warrant for fear of lawsuits, so it behooves the feds to be there on time when the person is released.

Here is the trick: ICE literally has to determine on their own when a person is going to be released and be there at the jail to grab them as they leave. The way the system should work is that ICE places a hold and coordinates with the locals to know when a release is to be made so they can take custody. It's a simple procedure, but it is clear that the locals are not fully cooperating. As I understand it, only in cases of prisoners convicted of serious felonies will the local notify ICE and inform them when the prisoner will be released. So in LA and San Francisco, we have illegal alien criminals getting out of local jails and nobody tells ICE. Now we see the result.

By the way, one of the public figures involved in this mess is Kamala Harris, former San Francisco DA and current California attorney general. She is now running for the US Senate seat being vacated by Barbara Boxer and is a favorite to win the Democratic nomination. Since California is literally devoid of Republicans that means she will probably be our next US Senator.

How Political Correctness in UK Sacrificed British Girls

Hat tip Frontpage Magazine and Birmingham Mail

The UK is reeling from a series of sexual grooming cases across the land by which British teenage girls and those in their twenties are "groomed' by gangs of mostly Pakistani men. Raymond Ibrahim of Frontpage Magazine has posted this news report from the Birmingham Mail that adds more shocking revelations. The police knew it was happening, where and how it was happening. They failed to act, and they failed to alert the public because it would offend sensibilities. Why? because the culprits were mostly Pakistani and African and mostly Muslim.

Too hot to handle.

The result? Untold numbers of lives ruined.

It makes you want to tear your hair out. No common sense. No decency. No accountability. Who is protecting the public? And yet the West Midlands police pat themselves on the back. They could have stopped it years ago.

University of Missouri KC Opts for C Class- Pays Chelsea for a Speech

Hat tip Campus Reform

The University of Missouri at Kansas City went shopping for a Mercedes back in February inviting Hillary Clinton to speak at the opening of the-get this- Women's Hall of Fame.

Unfortunately, her $275,000 price tag (for the Clinton Foundation, of course) was too steep.  So they opted for the C class bringing in daughter Chelsea to give a 10-minute stem winder for a mere $65,000.

Don't ask me what she talked about. Last I heard she was getting $75,000 to talk about diarrhea.

Who Were We Giving Arms To in Libya?

Hat tip Eagle Rising

More e-mails have been released by the State Department, and it's looking worse for Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration. According to the analysis given by Judge Andrew Napolitano of Fox news, we were indirectly furnishing arms to some very bad people in Libya and Syria-in violation of US laws.

"I am convinced as are others who have looked at this -- and FOX aired this in a special Saturday night and several times over the weekend -- that a conspiracy existed between the president, and Mrs. Clinton, and Congressional leaders from both parties in both Houses others in the State Department, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department to get arms shipped to rebels in Syria and in Libya. And some of those rebels are members of organizations that are on the terror list and providing them with material assistance is a felony. So the arms dealers applied for and received permission from State and Treasury lawfully to sell arms to the government of Qatar and they lawfully did so. Qatar then sold, delivered, bartered or gave these arms to the terrorist organizations with the knowledge and consent of Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was Secretary of State."

Hello? Is this thing on? Is anybody out there?
