Reason: faith’s greatest enemy

When valor preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.

“When valor preys on reason, it eats the sword it fights with.”

Over the past year I have noticed that the spirit of America has gone from bravery, valor, courage and “these colors do not run” to the best that conservatives have (Fox News) stating that, “They are coming for us.” As if to say that there is nothing 312 million armed-to-the-teeth people can do about a bunch of coward devils with swords in hand.

Guardian of the guilty

Flag of Palestine - symbol of peace, or of war? Why does the ASA take their side?

Despite England’s experiences during World War II and her current informal “occupation” by her own brand of deadly Islamists, The Guardian’s views are neither civilized nor rational.  In his column, Gaza: this shameful injustice will only end if the cost of it rises, Seurnas Milne has a willful misinterpretation of the events in the Middle East.  His column is laden with stark hatred and lies, and he clearly champions a policy that supports the Hamas Covenant, a Charter that calls for the eventual creation of the 58th Islamic state in “Palestine,” and the obliteration or dissolution of the only homeland for the Jewish people – as well as the annihilation of the Jewish people worldwide.

Iraq: have we returned?

Maybe some of this equipment stayed behind in Iraq and is in the hands of the enemy.

That last few days have seen the most reluctant engagement of an enemy in the history of the United States. An army-without-a-country calling itself “The Islamic State” is roaming over vast tracts of land in northern Iraq. But now, on the orders of de facto President Obama, American planes have strafed Islamic State (IS) positions, and dropped food, water, and other supplies on top of a mountain for some civilians the IS has trapped there. Now we see American troops giving arms and ammunition to Kurdish fighters, the only fighters native to Iraq who are any good.

Muslim flag at White House?

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

Twenty years ago, a comic tract artist warned of a deadly ambition in the Muslim world. Muslims, he said, wanted to fly their green crescent-m00n-and-star flag over the White House. Few people even knew what he said, and even fewer took him seriously. But today Muslims, from a brutal commander of an army without a country to a real head-of-state, now avow that ambition openly. What have secular, and especially leftist or libertarian, politicians to say to that?

Geneva convention lies

The Red Cross symbol. The Geneva Convention has always been a Red Cross project.

Critics of the Republic of Israel throw the name “Geneva convention” around and make it a buzz phrase. Their premise: Israel breaks the Geneva convention, by how it either runs things in Judea and Samaria (“the West Bank”), or fights its war in and over Gaza. But a close read of the Geneva convention shows Israel has not broken that convention or any of its protocols. Their enemies break that convention all the time, but no one complains, even in a whisper.

Las artistas unilluminated

Israel, Judea-Samaria, and Gaza. Perhaps the Geneva Convention applies here, but: is Israel truly in breach?

Re: Penelope Cruz, husband Javier Bardem write open letter calling Israel’s actions “genocide”, New York Daily News

When people step out of their sphere of familiarity and take on a cause with a background of sheer ignorance, they just can’t connect the dots! Ay, que lastima (what a pity)! Such is the case of Penelope Cruz, Javier Bardem, director Pedro Almodovar and others.

Israel invades Gaza

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Thirteen years of pseudo-war, continued terrorism, and lately unprovoked attacks came to an end today. Israel has now invaded Gaza, from land, sea and air. The only remaining question is: will they stay?

Israel to wait Hamas out?

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Can Israel wait Hamas out? That seems incredible. After all, Hamas now has rockets that let it reach all the way to the Dead Sea and almost to the Golan Heights to the north and Eilat to the south. But two experts, who should know, say Hamas started this latest war out of desperation. Desperate men lose more often than win. So maybe the leaders of Israel calculate wisely, to strike back only in the air (or with special forces) until Hamas runs out of missiles.

Jews not like Muslims

How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Lorna Salzman, author of “Jews Behaving Like Muslims,” featured in the New English Review, claims “Zionists and observant Jews” complain like Muslims regarding The Death of Klinghoffer, an “opera” to be produced at the Met. Salzman, evidently an anti-Zionist and self-hating Jew, disregarded the spirit of the complaints. Rather, she uses moral relativism (trickery) to equate disparate events and reactions, villains with victims. The two cultures are disparate. (Observant) Jews don’t behave like Muslims.

The board is nailed

A typical Muslim national flag: green with a white crescent and star.

The Daily Iowan Editorial Board appears to have fallen prey to some very dangerous rhetoric – as though influenced by an un-American entity. Rather than provide an overview or opinion, their editorial presents a plethora of deceitful statements in defense of Islamic sharia law – preaching that it is compatible with religious liberty.
