How long before the ADL kicks out all its Jews?
By Ann Coulter, WND
[..] Liberal Jews seem to be blithely unaware that the singular threat to Jews at the moment is the complete annihilation of Israel. Why won’t they focus on the genuine threat of Islamo-fascism and leave poor old Robert Byrd alone?
The ADL goes around collecting statements from Democrats proclaiming their general support for Israel, but it refuses to criticize Democrats who attack Joe Lieberman for supporting the war and who tolerate the likes of former Rep. Cynthia McKinney.
Sure, Hillary will show up at an ADL dinner and announce that she supports Israel. And then she gets testy with Bush for talking about sanctions against Iran in too rough a tone of voice.
What does it mean for the ADL to collect those statements?
The survival of Israel is inextricably linked to the survival of the Republican Party and its evangelical base. And yet the ADL viciously attacks conservatives, implying that there is some genetic anti-Semitism among right-wingers to hide the fact that anti-Semites are the ADL’s best friends – the defeatists in Congress, the people who tried to drive Joe Lieberman from office, the hoodlums on college campuses who riot at any criticism of Muslim terrorists and identify Israel as an imperialist aggressor, and liberal college faculties calling for “anti-apartheid” boycotts of Israel.blockquote>

IN ALL ITS SPLENDOR
USE POWER POINT TO OPEN
THE UNITED COALITION FOR JERUSALEM
IS LEADING THE CAMPAIGN TO BRING DOWN
THE OLMERT GOVERNMENT
IT NEEDS YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT
There are ministers in the current Israeli government who have publicly
declared their support for dividing the historical capital of the Jewish People – Jerusalem –
and relinquishing control over its holiest site – the Temple Mount.
They MUST BE STOPPED “No Jew is at liberty to surrender the right of
the Jewish Nation and the Land of Israel to exist.
No Jewish body is sanctioned to do so.
No Jew alive today has the authority to yield any piece of land whatsoever.
This right is preserved by the Jewish people throughout the generations and cannot be forfeited under any circumstances …”

Senator Barack Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem.
Barack Hussein Obama’s photo (that’s his real name)……the article said he REFUSED TO NOT ONLY PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, BUT REFUSED TO SAY THE PLEDGE…..how in the hell can a man like this expect to be our next Commander-in-Chief????
The article, it turns out was erroneous. The picture is of the candidates during the playing of the national anthem.

Ami Isseroff in his article Israel’s Peace Strategy recognizes Arab intentions and lack of peaceful action.
[..] Make no mistake, these negotiations are fraught with peril for Israel, and they have, objectively, little chance of real success. Mahmoud Abbas can scarcely control 50 square meters of territory in the West Bank, and may well be overthrown by the Hamas at any moment, yet he is demanding a strict timetable for a Palestinian state. He announces that his “negotiations” will consist of making “no concessions” on his demands for right of return of refugees and obliteration of any memory of Jewish national rights in the old city of Jerusalem.
News coverage from Israel is often distorted if measured against the ‘Code of Ethics’ guidelines of journalism. The origins of “bad news” about a country thus lie with numerous foreign media. This project exposes one of many methods used.
This project is based on “Bad News from the Netherlands”.
“Bad News from the Netherlands” has raised major international interest since it appeared on the web in October 2007. Many thanks are due to all those who have contributed news, ideas and financing. Support us to expand this project.

The Coordinating Council on Jerusalem is off to a good start. The organizations joining, and there are many, have accepted the principle that defending Jerusalem from division is more important than unquestioned support of decisions made by the Government of Israel.
“Preserving an undivided Jerusalem is a paramount issue not only for Israelis, but for the worldwide Jewish Community. This is not a decision any Israeli government can make unilaterally. Jerusalem belongs to all Jews, even those not living in Israel, and their opinion matters.”
The U.S. has renewed pressure on Israel to evacuate illegal outposts in the West Bank and has asked Jerusalem to broaden efforts to help West Bank Palestinians in the run-up to the Annapolis peace summit next month.
During talks in Jerusalem late last week, National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley said the U.S. expects Israel to take measures that will assist Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.
Hadley’s message was that if Israel wants to delay the discussions on the core issues – refugees, Jerusalem and borders – it must help the Palestinians change the situation on the ground and evacuate the outposts.
Israel has promised to evacuate all the outposts set up in the West Bank after March 2001, but has failed to abide by this. The U.S.administration has not raised the issue for the past three years in light of Israel’s withdrawal from the Gaza Strip in 2005.
Hadley also made it clear that the White House is fully coordinated with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, dismissing any impression that Rice is acting independently and that her efforts do not enjoy the backing of President George W. Bush. CONTINUE
With 700 million cars driving on the world’s roads, releasing an estimated 2.8 billion tons of CO2 pollution annually, it doesn’t take a genius to understand that the world is rapidly heading for an environmental disaster. What it does take, however, is someone daring enough to tackle that challenge – one of the biggest facing mankind today – head on.
Israeli entrepreneur Shai Agassi is that man. The 39-year-old former SAP executive has come up with an ambitious plan to shake up the auto industry by encouraging consumers worldwide to give up their heavily polluting fossil fuel cars and purchase electric cars instead.
Agassi’s new company, Project Better Place, was launched on Monday in New York. The company, which raised $200 million – making it one of the largest initial fundings for a start-up in history – plans to establish a widespread grid of electric charging spots at current parking locations, as well as battery exchange stations to provide consumers with the energy to keep their electric cars charged and on the roads without the need to wait for electricity at any point.

MANFRED GERSTENFELD asks the question Guess who Europe’s subsidizing?
The European Union and its member countries have been subsidizing various opponents of Israel for many years. A study, just published by the Dutch Center for Documentation and Information on Israel contains perhaps the most detailed investigation of one such case.
A group called United Civilians for Peace is a joint venture of five Dutch NGOs. Fifty to 90% of their budgets are funded by the Dutch government and the European Union. A sixth partner left UCP in view of its extreme anti-Israeli activities.
Journalist Joost de Haas, writing in the Dutch Telegraaf summed up the 50-plus page report by the Dutch Center for Documentation saying: “A peace organization financed with taxpayers money is guided by the Palestinian terror organization Hamas and supports the Iranian atom bomb.”
The EU and the Dutch government thus indirectly finance Dutch opponents of Israel.
This story is the tip of a European iceberg of financial support for anti-Israeli bodies.
WE’VE BEEN HAD!
by Emanuel A. Winston, Mid East Analyst & Commentator
I was reminded by several incoming Emails that we Jews have been thrown a bone to distract us and it’s called “Jerusalem” for the coming International Conference for “Peace In Our Times” at the Annapolis Naval Academy in Maryland. It’s not that they wouldn’t like to divide Jerusalem at this time but, for their purposes it’s something they can use for negotiations but then give up the JERUSALEM PLOY to get what they really want. It was vital in their planning to get Jewish and Christian supporters of Israel to ignore the planned main take-over and have us focus primarily on Jerusalem.
[..] The Annapolis Conference for “Peace in Our Time” is the American version of the infamous Wannsee Conference. The main goal of Rice, Bush – and others – is to divide Israel and build another Palestinian state out of what’s left.
Manipulating us to dwell only on the vital issue of Jerusalem, we would leave the rest of Israel to fall into Muslim Arab hands. Weakening Israel by dividing an already minuscule and vulnerable nation is a definitive obsession for those who have been invited to what amounts to a pre-execution ceremony.

In November, a U.S. sponsored conference involving Israel, the Palestinian Authority (PA) and possibly several Arab states will convene in Annapolis to frame yet another plan supposed to end the Arab-Israeli war and create a Palestinian state. This conference is doomed to fail. The reason: Palestinians’ goal is Israel’s destruction, not statehood. This fact has remained unchanged since Israel embarked on the disastrous Oslo process with Yasser Arafat in 1993, culminating in a terror war after Israeli Prime Minister Barak offered a Palestinian state on nearly all of the disputed territories, which was rejected.
Despite this, the Bush Administration, with international approval, is proceeding on the fiction that Mahmoud Abbas and his Fatah party, which he co-founded with Arafat and which controls the PA, want peace, and accept Israel’s existence as a Jewish state.

THE CREATION OF AN ANTI-ISLAMOFASCISM MOVEMENT
Written by Jack Wheeler & Steve Baldwin, 24 November 2006
Anti-Communism: The Original Conservative Movement
One cannot write the history of the Cold War without acknowledging the key role played by the American Anti-Communist Movement. It was a broad movement involving many different organizations that, for four decades, kept its focus on the defeat of the Soviet Empire. And it succeeded.
Indeed, Anti-Communism was the defining issue that brought hundreds of thousands of people into the conservative movement from the 1950s through to the 1980s. There was a sense that this movement had to be successful if not only America but Western Civilization itself were to survive.
What did this Movement Accomplish?
The Anti-Communist Movement was formed after World War II when it was revealed that Soviet spies were operating throughout our government. This movement became one of the most successful political movements in our history.
It started out slowly due to liberal propaganda during WWII which convinced many Americans that Russia was our friend since they were aligned with us during the war. By the 1950’s, the Anti-Communist Movement had created a massive infrastructure which became a major educational and political force within America. This movement:
Itamar Marcus of PMW was asked in May in a Jerusalem Post interview of his feelings on a Palestinian state . “I believe my answer covers many of the reasons why today it is too dangerous for any moderate person to suggest Israel accept a state.”
Q: Where do you stand, personally, on the peace process?
A: I want the Arabs of Gaza, Judea and Samaria governing themselves, but one must not permit a murderer to live beside one’s family. The PA, from Hamas to the Aksa Brigades of the Fatah, is a confirmed terror authority, until it proves otherwise. Self- delusion that there are moderates will not change reality.
Statehood is not just a flag and a national anthem. It means Palestinian control over land, sea and air, and border crossings. A Palestinian state, even if it was officially demilitarized, would accumulate within a few years a vast arsenal of weapons that could kill thousands and tens of thousands of Israelis. This is not just possible, it is 100% certain. Just look at the mammoth arms buildup today – when they don’t control the crossings.
Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner celebrates election victory.
BUENOS AIRES (JTA) — Lately it seems that whenever a new president is elected in a Central American or South American country — Nicaragua, Ecuador and Bolivia are among the most recent examples — local Jews express alarm.
Not so in Argentina.
Sunday’s comfortable victory by Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, the wife of incumbent President Nestor Kirchner, is being warmly welcomed by the country’s 200,000-strong Jewish community, the largest in Latin America.
Fernandez de Kirchner, a senator with the long-influential Peronist party, has developed close relationships with Jews both in Argentina and in the United States, community leaders here say.
“This is not going to be a new government in terms of issues related to Jewish community concerns,” Donzis said Monday. “We were and will be supported by Cristina. She is publicly committed to us, she was at Jewish demonstrations and celebrations, and even spoke at Jewish events.” CONTINUE

Gunman Kills 3 U.S. Missionaries At Yemen Hospital – Fourth American Worker Is Wounded at Baptist Facility (WASHINGTON POST) By Michael A. Fletcher and Dan Eggen 12/31/02 Page A01)
Three American missionaries were slain and a fourth was seriously wounded at a Baptist charity hospital in Yemen yesterday by a suspected Islamic militant who smuggled a semi-automatic rifle into the heavily guarded facility by cradling it under his coat like a baby in his arms, officials said.
The suspected gunman, Abed Abdul-Razzaq al-Kamil, surrendered to hospital authorities after his gun apparently jammed following the shootings at Jibla Baptist Hospital, which is located about 125 miles south of the Yemeni capital, Sanaa. Officials in Yemen said al-Kamil was connected to extremist groups and believed the killings would bring him closer to God.
Almost half of Britain’s mosques are under the control of a hardline Islamic sect whose leading preacher loathes Western values and has called on Muslims to “shed blood” for Allah, an investigation by The Times has found.
Riyadh ul Haq, who supports armed jihad and preaches contempt for Jews, Christians and Hindus, is in line to become the spiritual leader of the Deobandi sect in Britain. The ultra-conservative movement, which gave birth to the Taleban in Afghanistan, now runs more than 600 of Britain’s 1,350 mosques, according to a police report seen by The Times.
The Times investigation casts serious doubts on government statements that foreign preachers are to blame for spreading the creed of radical Islam in Britain’s mosques and its policy of enouraging the recruitment of more “home-grown” preachers. CONTINUE
