AN INTERVIEW WITH AARON KLEIN
AUTHOR OF “THE MANCHURIAN PRESIDENT: Barack Obama’s Ties to Communists, Socialists and other anti-American Extremists”
BY: FERN SIDMAN
Released in May of this year by WND Books, this seminal piece of investigative journalism entitled, “The Manchurian President” has been both embraced by political conservatives and repudiated by Obama apologists in progressive enclaves. Listed as number 23 on The New York Times non-fiction bestseller list as of June 27th, this eye-opening account of President Obama’s ties to radical left-wing extremists represents the latest work of intrepid investigative journalist and WABC radio talk show host, Aaron Klein. I sat down with Mr. Klein to discuss his new book.

Energy and Capital reports Iran surrounded by US troops in ten countries, Israeli nuke subs to be deployed in Persian Gulf
- The rise of the Turkish-Iranian alliance has not only thrust America and Israel to the wings the Middle East stage, but is deeply alarming Cairo, Riyadh, the Gulf emirate and even Syria. They suddenly see Prime minister Recep Erdogan and President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dictating the region’s agenda with no one there to stop them.
Within days, the balance of power in the region has been reshuffled to extend way beyond Tehran’s hand on Hizballah’s levers in Beirut and the Palestinian Hamas in Gaza. Iran has acquired an important member of NATO as a proactive ally.

Showing weakness and stupidity, the West encourages the Middle East predators, promotes the collapse of moderate Arab regimes and throws Israel into a dilemma: the Holocaust or the “Samson option”

THE PATH TO THE FINAL SOLUTION
Fall of moderate Arab regimes in Egypt , Jordan and the Persian Gulf states, Israel will be backed into a corner
If the situation does not change (that is extremely improbable), we will witness a two-act drama. The first act will be the fall of moderate Arab regimes in Egypt , Jordan and the Persian Gulf states. If it happens, the second act will follow. Israel will be backed into a corner, surrounded by uncontrollable mad regimes. It will face the total Islamic hysteria. It will see how the circle of its enemies such as Turkey , Syria , Iran and their puppets in Lebanon and Gaza unite with “revolutionary” Muslim brothers in Egypt and Jordan .
It will see the silent indifference of the West at best and shouts of triumph and jeering at worst. The next Holocaust will cease to be an abstraction and become a reality.
Israel will be left with only two options: to die without a fight or to be lost, having destroyed the enemies. The option of falling victim to genocide or the “Option of Samson”. Zapatero and Obama believe that Israel will choose the first one. Considering the tragic and painful history of Jews, from Maccabeus and Jerusalem’s zealots to the Warsaw ghetto and the Six-Day War, I would not hurry up with conclusions. And in this case there will be no outside observers…
Think about this: there is at least one American business that is paid to demonize Israel.
The employees, well-paid professionals, go to work every day and think up ways to make Israel look like a moral monster, a rogue state dangerous to world peace for which the only remedy — as in the case of Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan or apartheid South Africa — is more than just regime change, rather, a fundamental change in the nature of the polity which can only be effected by force.

Subject: Yeshiva Demolition
TO: PM Netanyahu, MK Yaalon, MK Begin, Defense Minister Barak,
Has it occurred to you that if you demolish the Od Yosef Chai Yeshiva in Yitzhar, the publicity you will receive in America will be all bad? All negative. And it will make it harder to ask religious people — Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists – to support Israel.
You have a POTENTIALLY large support group. But frankly, you confuse everyone.

See no jihad. Hear no jihad. Speak no jihad.
This sums up the Obama administration’s national security assessment regarding our ongoing conflict with global Islamic jihad. Unfortunately for us, it seems they have come down with a severe case of Jihad Denial Syndrome (JDS).
Americans were tipped off to this when the Pentagon released its report on the Fort Hood jihadist attack. The mountains of evidence, including Nidal Hasan screaming “Allahu Akbar” as he fired away, indisputably revealed that Hasan was motivated by the ideology of jihad.
If you want to learn more about Islam, nobody better to learn from than Andy Bostom. The links to de Toqueville should also be studied. Well worth your time.
McChrystal, Tocqueville, and the Koran: The Postmodern ‘COINage’ of a Failed Policy
Just over nine months ago, on September 20, 2009, the Department of Defense released a declassified version of Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal’s assessment of the war in Afghanistan. The Washington Post published a version of this report with minor deletions of material that officials maintained could compromise future operations, rather than a copy of the document marked “confidential.” Although Gen. McChrystal’s counterinsurgency (COIN)-based analysis, “updated” for the Afghanistan theater, at least mentioned the “Koran” (a word omitted entirely from the December 2006 COIN manual co-authored by Gen. David Petraeus), the Koran’s motivational relevance — consistent with a over a millennium of jihadism within Afghanistan (or “Ghazni”) — was completely misrepresented. Negating doctrinal and historical realities, past and present, McChrystal’s uninformed, panglossian Koranic gloss rationalized an ostensibly “more forceful” strategy:
Despite the these polls Hussein believes the Jews will come through on election day. I tend to agree.
I always found it incomprehensible that Jews by the millions could go to their end like sheep without a fight.
Observing the behavior of American Jews today has given me an understanding that till now eluded me. All I can say is Shame on them and I think they are A pathetic bunch of….! Yamit
The Rift Is Deep and Wide
The Daily Caller
By Caroline May
Support for President Obama is waning among America’s Jewish population, polls indicate, a shift driven primarily by the president’s policies toward Israel.
The London Telegraph reported this weekend that Michael Oren, Israel’s ambassador to the United States, described the state of U.S.-Israeli relations in bleak terms, saying the two nations “are in a state of tectonic rift in which continents are drifting apart.” While Oren since has asserted that he was misquoted and that his words were less incendiary than reported, even relatively disinterested observers can see that relations between the allies are strained.
McLaughlin & Associates, a national polling company, recently released the “National Survey of Jewish Voters” which reported that while Jewish voters favored Obama 78 percent to 12 percent in the 2008 presidential exit polls, currently, “only 42 percent of voters would re-elect him, while the plurality (46 percent) would consider voting for someone else.
On December 11, 2009, a group of Palestinian Christian leaders issued a 13 page document known as “Kairos Palestine-2009: A moment of truth.” Having “reached a dead end” because of the “Israeli military occupation,” the leaders appealed to churches worldwide to treat Israel as they had apartheid South Africa by divestment and economic boycott.1
Given that the authors of this document include Patriarch Emeritus Michel Sabbah from the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, the Lutheran Bishop of Jerusalem Munib Younan, Archbishop of Sebastia Atallah Hanna from the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate, we should not be surprised with this distorted description of the plight of Christian Arabs in Gaza, Judea and Samaria.
Laura: Perhaps the Obama administration wants to deport Mosab Hassan Yousef because it would like to silence his voice regarding the true nature of hamas and islam. After all, the administration seeks to legitimize hamas and reach out to the muslim world. Having someone like Yousef on the talk show circuit advocating banning the koran because it inspires hatred and violence and explaining there can never be peace with the palestinians because their religion forbids acceptance of a Jewish state, is a problem for the Obama agenda. What if the Obama administration made a deal with hamas to send Yousef back? We know hamas will kill him if he is deported. I don’t think the Obama administration would have a problem with that.
National Review Online
Mosab Hassan Yousef must have encountered nearly everything on his unlikely journey. But surely he never ran across anything as stupid as the American immigration bureaucracy.
Yousef is the son of Sheikh Hassan Yousef, a Hamas founder, and was groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps. At the age of 18, he purchased some machine guns and planned to join the terrorist organization’s militant wing. But he was arrested with the guns, and during a stint in Israeli prison, he had a change of heart — and joined Hamas as an undercover agent of the Israeli intelligence agency Shin Bet after his release from prison in 1997.
Alternatives to surrender
By Caroline Glick, JPOST
[..] WHEN NETANYAHU entered office last spring his desire to appease Obama was understandable. At the time, he was operating under the hope that perhaps Obama could be appeased into ending his onslaught against the Jewish state. But the events of the past year have made clear that Obama is unappeasable. Every concession Israel has made to Obama has merely whetted the US president’s appetite for more.
The policy implications of this state of affairs are clear. First, Israel must strive to weaken Obama. Since Israeli concessions to Obama strengthen him, Israel must first and foremost stop giving him concessions.

A secret admirer, perhaps a critic, has sent me a gift subscription to Time magazine. I leaf through its pages, stop at the two page layout of “The World” which displays Israel as one of ten world hot spots this week. Israel’s “easing of the Gaza blockade” merits 176 words and comprises a column which is 5 ½ inches by 2 ½ inches. By contrast, China’s “easing” of its financial currency restrictions (which may have major world repercussions) merits only 89 words; the refugee crisis in Kyrgyzstan which has displaced 400,000 ethnic Uzbeks merits only 82 words and a photo. Obama’s Patients’ Bill of Rights is only 65 words; America’s additional resolutions sanctioning Iran merit only 58 words.
Laura: Of course it’s not possible to shame the UN since it is devoid of any standards and is thus incapable of feeling shame.
Watchdog NGO speaks out on silence of United Nations following atrocities
By PETER WORTHINGTON, Toronto Sun
One of the more interesting organizations concerned with both the fate of the world and the people in it is UN Watch.
Set up in 1993, it’s a Geneva-based non-governmental organization in place to monitor the UN itself.
What’s significant is UN Watch uses the UN Charter itself to scrutinize what goes on inside that body. In other words, UN Watch doesn’t set the standards, the UN does. UN Watch simply judges the UN by its own yardstick.
Tom Friedman is in my opinion the vilest Jew hater and basher of them all. His Jewish identity is used as a fig leaf to mask his anti-Semitic and anti-Israel agenda. The `NYT coupled with Tom Friedman is for Israel and the Jews a match made in Hell. That’s where I’d like to see them both. Yamit
Tom Friedman’s vile comparison
From: Israel Matzav
In yet another call for Israel to forfeit its security from the editorial pages of the New York Times, Tom Friedman makes a vile comparison:
What is different about these three wars, though, is that Israel won them using what I call “Hama Rules” — which are no rules at all. “Hama Rules” are named after the Syrian town of Hama, where, in 1982, then-President Hafez el-Assad of Syria put down a Muslim fundamentalist uprising by shelling and then bulldozing their neighborhoods, killing more than 10,000 of his own people.
(Israel Government Press Office)
All of the papers discuss various issues related to abducted IDF soldier Gilad Shalit:
Yediot Aharonot reminds its readers that “The Americans stopped the abduction of their soldiers in Iraq with the assistance of a refusal to negotiate with terrorists. The author adds that “I believe that we must negotiate but not at these prices.” The paper believes that “We have gone astray in navigating between strengthening the Palestinian Authority and strengthening Hamas, the true significance of which can be measured in human lives. We have gone astray because we ascribe more importance to the life of one soldier than to the lives of many other soldiers and civilians. We have gone astray between the genuine pain of a noble and hurting family, and expressions that are the result of advice from media companies. We have gone astray between hours, days and perhaps years of an isolated soldier or two in captivity, and the existence of the people and nation for many years.”
The author asserts that while the State of Israel “sees a single soldier in danger, and he has a name and he has parents, it must also see the certain quantities of those who would pay the price of his release.” The author, a former GOC Personnel, concludes: “In the IDF, I educated thousands of soldiers and commanders. We promised them that if they fell captive, we would do everything in our power to bring about their release. We never promised them that we would do everything.”

Silvio Berlusconi, prime minister of Italy, is an unconventional politician and he is difficult to predict. But even Berlusconi is surely too well versed in the customs of international diplomacy to make predictions about Israel attacking Iran without very good grounds for doing so. On the sidelines of the G8* summit in Canada on Saturday he said the following:
- “Iran is not guaranteeing a peaceful production of nuclear power [so] the members of the G-8 are worried and believe absolutely that Israel will probably react pre-emptively.”

Turkish army blames Erdogan for setbacks against rebels
As he took off for the G20 summit opening in Toronto Saturday, June 26, Turkish Prime Minister Recep Erdogan came under an exceptionally acerbic US rebuke for a NATO member. He was accused of alienating the US and the West and told he needed to demonstrate Ankara’s commitment to their (NATO) partnership by Philip Gordon, top US diplomat on European affairs, in a clear rejection of the Turkish prime minister’s assertion in parliament Tuesday June 15: “There’s no shift in Turkey’s axis. Turkey is not a city state, it’s not a state on which agendas are imposed,” he said.
Laura: I know it’s easy to be skeptical since we have often been told that one particular western leader or another is pro-Israel only to be later disappointed once they took office. But Julia Gillard defended Israel during the Gaza war when she was acting PM. So she seems pretty solid.
by Isi Leibler, Word From Jerusalem
The ousting of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd by his deputy Julia Gillard was a dramatic event. A year ago Rudd was still highly popular but his abrupt policy reversal on global climate and the environment began a decline, which climaxed when he stunned the business world by abruptly imposing a tax on mining companies engaged in mineral and energy sales to China and India. The Australian Labor Party, which holds the reins of government, was undoubtedly strongly motivated by Rudd’s plummeting standing in the polls which if sustained would probably result in a resounding defeat at the elections scheduled for next year.
