During a January 23, 2013, Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing Hillary Clinton was questioned about the September 11, 2012 bombing of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The Benghazi anniversary attack occurred while Clinton was Obama’s Secretary of State during the final months of Romney’s presidential bid to unseat Obama and just two months before the November presidential elections.
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee was conducting a review of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans including U.S. Ambassador J. Chris Stevens. During questioning by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), Hillary Clinton famously said, “At this point what difference does it make?” Let’s find out.
The transcript of the hearing recorded on C-SPAN shows Sen. Johnson repeatedly asking Clinton about the story coming out of Obama’s White House that the Benghazi attack was a response to protests outside the Consulate and an anti-Islam video posted on YouTube.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: The German Agency for Domestic Security recently published a report on Muslim antisemitism in the country – a development that is unprecedented not only for Germany but for all of Europe. The report makes clear that Muslim antisemitism is a major problem in Germany. At long last, Muslim antisemitism in Germany has been officially detailed for the public.
The German Agency for Domestic Security (Bundesamt fuer Verfassungsschutz) recently published a 40-page report entitled “Antisemitism in Islamism.” Never before has any European intelligence agency published a report on Muslim antisemitism. This report is a major break with the German past. It is the first official publication by a national body that exposes in reasonable detail the antisemitism originating in parts of the country’s Muslim community.

Can anyone give me the link to the earlier resolution.?
Canada has a stated policy position reflecting the early one.
The UN published a propaganda study filled with selective information in 1978, this in order to cast doubt on Israel’s legality.
President Trump appears set to expose more than forty years of deceptive and misleading information disseminated by the United Nations (UN) in relation to the boundaries of former Palestine.
This welcome development comes with President Trump’s Special U.S Envoy Jason D. Greenblatt telling Sky News in Arabic on 19 April:
“There is no reason to use the term ‘two-state solution,” the reason being that, “every side sees it differently.”
The UN must take responsibility for creating such confusion by perpetuating intellectual and political fraud originating with its 1978 publication: “The Origins and Evolution of the Palestinian problem“(Study)
The last thing we expect mid-spring is snow. Yet that’s just what we have. As the Weather Channel reports, “It may be late April, but Winter Storm Xyler will make you forget that it is spring in the Midwest this weekend as it is expected to bring some unusually heavy late season snowfall.”
Snow is heading to New York as well, despite the state’s all-out effort to combat global warming by attempting to ban plastic straws and now hot dogs. From the New York Post, “Upstate NY may get up to 3 inches of snow this weekend.”
Joe Biden allegedly directed $1.8 billion in aid money to Ukraine as Vice President while his son Hunter received millions of dollars from Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings, according to Peter Schweizer, president of the Government Accountability Institute and senior Breitbart editor-at-large.
As The Hill‘s John Solomon reported Monday, Hunter Biden was paid upwards of $166,000 per month to sit on the board of Burisma from spring 2014 through fall 2015.
“We’ve talked before about the deals he procured with the government for China, Schweizer said Tuesday night on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight. “The other place [Joe Biden’s] son, Hunter Biden, procured a big deal was in Ukraine.In Ukraine, it involved an energy company called Burisma, which is a very corrupt organization headed by an oligarch named Mykola Zlochevsky who is very close to Viktor Yanukovich, the pro-Russian leader.”

5,000,000 Jews in the US. An anti antisemitism in Congress petition did not get 500,000 signatures. Not even close. Less than 238,000.
Report: Israel transferred money to PA in order to prevent economic collapse, but the PA is unwilling to accept the money.
Israel secretly transferred hundreds of millions of shekels to the Palestinian Authority to prevent its collapse – but the Palestinians returned the money, Kan 11 News reported on Sunday.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon discussed this subject during a meeting on Sunday, according to the report. The meeting was also attended by the head of the National Security Council, Meir Ben-Shabbat, and the two discussed the possibility of persuading PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas to accept hundreds of millions of shekels from Israel.
When mentioning “very fine people on both sides,” Conway said Trump “was talking about the debate over removing statues.”
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway on Sunday defended President Donald Trump’s remarks on the 2017 violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, saying that he had condemned white nationalism and that his comments have been misconstrued.
Trump “condemned white nationalism and neo-Nazis and the KKK during the Charlottesville incident,” Conway said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” When mentioning the “very fine people on both sides,” a remarks for which Trump was widely criticized, she said Trump “was talking about the debate over removing statues.”
“He was not talking about the weekend at all,” Conway said, adding, “If you continue the sentence, he says people were there who had not signed up with the neo-Nazis and white supremacists, who were there about a park being renamed and a statue being taken down.”

Jared Kushner, Pres Trump’s special envoy for the ME, recently told 100 foreign diplomats in the Blair House, that the Plan, sometimes referred to as the Deal of the Century, will be rolled out after the new Israeli government is sworn in and following the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which ends June 5.
But will it?
Many dates have been suggested over the last year or so for tabling the plan but time and again they have been postponed for one reason or another.

From time immemorial, the Jews have always been in a state of struggle to survive. Empire after empire, leader after leader, have always used the Jews as scapegoats for many unjust and discriminatory excuses. This type of action kept repeating throughout history and from one generation to the next. Finally, over the years, this stigma became part of the entity of the Jewish culture. Perhaps this scapegoating early on originated by the apostle Matthew who was responsible for blaming the death of Jesus on all Jews.
Probably, “the most harmful case is the claim by early Christians that all Jews throughout the centuries remain responsible for the death of Jesus,” by saying, “His blood shall be on us and on our children!” Such a severe accusation meant that in the Christians’ eyes, Jews were the epitome of absolute evil: they were both adept and guilty of killing Jesus. This absurd accusation against the Jews being the embodiment of absolute evil has, in turn, become the core theme of anti-Semitism over the millennia.
European governments have failed to stand in defense of Christian communities in the Middle East, Asia and Africa, just to avoid drawing fire and being perceived as enemies of Islam.
The jihadist war being waged by radical Islamist groups across the globe never stopped at the gates of holy sites and places of worship. Indeed, even those who worship in these places have become legitimate and convenient targets for the jihadists in the Middle East, Africa and Asia – as we learned from the recent massacre in Sri Lanka – and in recent years in Europe as well.
Communities of minorities, mostly Christians, are persecuted in large portions of the Islamic world, and the tolerance once applied toward Jews and Christians has now been replaced by extremism threatening the continued existence of Christianity in these places. Seventy years removed since the end of Jewish life in Iraq and Syria due to persecutions and expulsions, the Middle East’s Christian community is now disappearing.
‘It can happen anywhere,’ says father of 8-year-old Noya Dahan; her injured uncle says life in Sderot prepared him to respond to synagogue attack
A relative of two Israelis who were injured in Saturday’s shooting at a Chabad synagogue in Poway, California, said his family had moved to San Diego amid incessant rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, some of which had damaged their home, causing injuries — only to be targeted by anti-Semitism in the United States.
Local authorities say 19-year-old John Earnest opened fire with an assault rifle on worshipers during morning services on the last day of Passover, killing 60-year-old Lori Gilbert-Kaye and wounding the rabbi, Yisroel Goldstein; Israeli girl Noya Dahan, 8, who was hit by shrapnel in the face and leg; and her uncle Almog Peretz, 31, who was shot in the leg. All three are in stable condition.
Americans need to take a vacation from using the word “racist,” at least in connection with Israel, because they don’t have the slightest idea of what they are talking about, and it’s insulting as hell. Especially from presidential hopefuls:
That [US-Israel] relationship, if it is to be successful, must transcend partisanship in the United States, and it must be able to transcend a prime minister who is racist, as he warns about Arabs coming to the polls, who wants to defy any prospect for peace as he threatens to annex the West Bank, and who has sided with a far-right, racist party in order to maintain his hold on power. – Beto O’Rourke
I just believe that the United States should deal with the Middle East on a level playing field basis. In other words, the goal must be to try to bring people together and not just support one country, which is now run by a right-wing – dare I say – racist government. – Bernie Sanders

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Concerned over repercussions threatened by the US, judges of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in the Hague denied the request of the court’s chief prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda, to investigate war crimes allegedly committed by the US and its allies in Afghanistan. This decision has significant implications for lawfare battles the Palestinians are conducting against Israel and the information wars Israel is conducting against hostile organizations and movements such as the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction movement (BDS).
Sometimes powerful threats are the only way to protect the interests of democratic countries against abuses of international law and human rights. In 2001, under a controversial universal jurisdiction Belgian law, survivors of the 1982 massacres at the Sabra and Shatila neighborhoods in Beirut, where Christian militias killed hundreds of Palestinians, filed a criminal complaint against Israeli PM Ariel Sharon. They accused him of responsibility for the massacre as he served as Minister of Defense at the time. The complaint went several rounds of court sessions, and during that period Sharon could not visit Belgium in view of the danger that he would be arrested.
There is a statistically reliable 2 to 4.5-fold excess of Muslim Jew-hatred, juxtaposed to all other major religious affiliations, or those professing no religious belief.
“We don’t want you to use your kippah in this country [Indonesia]. If you continue to use it, we’ll kill you.”
—Threat to the barely ~200 Asian descent Jews in Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim nation with 229 million Muslims,, a country deemed “tolerant and moderate”, and exhibiting only an average level of extreme Antisemitism (48%) vis-à-vis the world’s Muslims.
The iconic Jewish conservative media figure Mark Levin recently devoted air time (here; starting at 1 hr 43 mins 4 secs) to a discussion of the Antisemitism expressed by Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar. While I commend Mr. Levin for simply acknowledging this ugly phenomenon, his exploration of the matter did more to obfuscate, than educate.
In 2015, King Mohammed VI founded an institute to train imams and female preachers of Islam from Africa and Europe in the practice of moderate Islam. Many come from areas where extremist groups like Al Qaida and Islamic State are active.
Naminata Koulibaly, 30, receives training in a Moroccan Muslim teaching institute, founded by King Mohammed VI in 2015, and hopes to return to her home in Ivory Coast better equipped to advise women on religious issues.
She is one of 100 women admitted every year to study for up to three years in the institute in Rabat, run by Morocco’s ministry of religious affairs.
Morocco, which is nearly 100% Muslim, has marketed itself as an oasis of religious tolerance in a region torn by militancy – and has offered training to imams and male and female preachers of Islam from Africa and Europe on what it describes as moderate Islam.
The indoctrination of young Americans is the goal of those who control curricula in public schools and colleges. Faculty, administrators, and textbook writers all do their part to create a narrative of an America that should be ashamed of its racist exploitative past, and ready to overhaul a capitalist system that benefits the few and cheats the many by robbing them of their fair share.
The new Advanced Placement history textbook is a case in point. Paul Mirengoff writes at Powerline:
[B]eginning in 2020, many Advanced Placement students will be using an American History textbook that suggests President Trump is mentally ill and that depicts him and many of his supporters as racists. The book asserts that “[Trump’s] not very-hidden racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.” …Read more …
Judicial Watch has just dropped a major bomb on George Soros, as Judicial Watch today has revealed that the US Government has subsidized hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Soros and his foundations. Of course these documents likely involve the Obama administration and of course the Department of State, as the State Department program known as USAID is known for sending millions of taxpayer dollars to Soros and his causes. These documents also officially confirm that US Intelligence agencies politically lean to the Left, as a 12 year veteran of the CIA who was an analyst for the CIA revealed just a few days back…And of course this is proven through these documents that highlight the Federal Government giving hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to Soros and his causes. Hopefully this money has already been pulled under Trump.
