I predicted in my blog yesterday that, “Koolanu will [join Netanyahu’s coalition]…, provided that Bibi gives the Finance Ministry to their leader, Moshe Kahlon, along with great powers to make reforms (this is good!).” Though I meant after the elections.
Today’s headline on the TimeofIsrael.com is “Netanyahu offers Kulanu leader Finance Ministry post. Prime Minister says he and Kahlon can lower housing prices.” No word on whether or not Moshe Kahlon will agree. He would be smarter to simply not respond until after the election. Continue Reading…
I began writing this article about three weeks ago and had been unable to finish it. I have gone back and forth regarding the Prime Minister’s upcoming speech on Iran. However it was a poll I saw today on Politico.com that encouraged me to finish this blog and publish it. I’ll get to the poll in a minute, but first, the article…
When I first heard that John Boehner had extended an invitation to Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress, I was uneasy. For a head of state to bypass the head of state of another country in order to speak against the policies of that leader, before Congress or Parliament, is unheard of. Imagine Obama going to Israel, at the invitation of the opposition, to speak before the Knesset, in order to convince them to give up Jerusalem or negotiate with Hamas. We’d be up in arms here in Israel.
Many people have pointed out that this is an historic breaking of protocol. And I agree. In most cases it would be wrong. In fact, many Israelis are concerned over their PM going head to head with U.S. President. The center/left party leaders have accused Netanyahu of ruining Israel’s historic relationship with the U.S.. Susan Rice, Obama’s hatchet-woman, agrees, “calling the move ‘destructive of the fabric of the relationship,’ between the United States and Israel.” Continue Reading…
It seems that the Summit on “Violent Extremism” was merely a Summit to express the virtues of Islam. President Barack Obama claimed that “Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” Of course who can forget the contributions of Walid Washington and Ahmed Jefferson. All jesting aside, the first mosque in NY City wasn’t built until the later eighteen hundreds, more than 100 years after Independence.
President Obama’s failed Cairo speech, “A New Beginning” or as I called it, the, “I’m Not George Bush” speech, should have taught him that the root causes of Islamic terror are not western aggression, prosperity or arrogance, or lack of jobs or lack of hugs. It is in fact Islamic Fundamentalism. I don’t even know if we can called it radicalism, because they are merely following Mohamed’s example and the Koran’s instructions.
When the sacred months are over slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. (Quran 9:5)
Believers, make war on the infidels who dwell around you. Deal firmly with them. Know that God is with the righteous. (Quran 9:123)
In Cairo, President Obama reached out to the Muslim world. He made it clear that America is not a war with Islam. While a bit naive, who can fault him for trying, but that was six years ago:
Before Benghazi, Before ISIS, Before Paris, Before Copenhagen, Before the beheading of journalists, Before the kidnapping and raping of Christian Arabs in Iraq, Before the beheading of 21 innocent Egyptian Christians, Before the burning alive of the Jordanian Pilot, Before the ouster of the President of Yemen, causing U.S. troops to flee in frenzy, Before… well you get the picture.
There comes a point when you realize that these people do not want our help or friendship, but to kill us. The problem for President Obama is that this runs contrary to the friendly example of Islam that he experienced going up in Indonesia. Therefore he is in denial. He shuns the president of Egypt, while meets secretly with reps from the Muslim Brotherhood. He has no time for U.S. ally Benjamin Netanyahu, but invites the Emir of Qatar, a country that pours millions into Hamas and harbors their leader, to the White House for talks on overcoming random extremism. He chides Christians for their judgmental arrogance—you’re just like them—while holding a Summit on Violent Extremism that hosted some, while, violent extremists!
One Boston Muslim leader taking part in the summit, Nicole Mossalam, has been dishonest about her controversial mosque blocking congregants from giving police information during their investigation of the Boston Marathon bombing. Another Muslim leader from Boston invited to the White House summit designed a lawsuit to stop the Boston media from reporting what it knows about the radical nature of the largest Islamic center in New England. In addition, this man, Nabeel Khudairi, persecuted moderate Muslim members of his own mosque after they tried to warn New Englanders about Islamic extremists in their midst. —Brietbart.com
In addition, 9/11 truther, Salam Al Mayariti, who said Israel should be at the top of the suspect list, after 9/11, was welcomed to the White House Summit. He is the president of MPAC, that tweeted this last week.

Obama has made a massive miscalculation to put defending Islam over defeating our enemies and protecting out people. We see this attitude in the first paragraph of Lars Hedegaard’s article, “It’s the Danes Fault.”
The first question the Danish Prime Minister got from one of the journalists, was, “How do you think this is going to affect the Muslims in Denmark? None of the journalists asked, “What are you going to do to protect us from this Islamist savagery?”
God help us…
