How should Israel feel about trusting Putin's Bitch?

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel yesterday gave the speech everyone was waiting for. The Netanyahu speech to the UN probably relieved some hearers, and certainly frustrated others. Because the Netanyahu speech put off war until next year. Can he afford to wait? Must he wait?

Terrorist attack in Libya: Obama knew it

Ambassador Chris Stevens died in Libya, on September 11, 2012, in a terrorist attack. That much should have been obvious to everyone from the start. We now learn that not only was it obvious, but the Obama administration—and thus Obama himself—knew perfectly well that he had lost an ambassador in a terrorist attack. He knew it twenty-four hours after the event. And still he and others blamed Stevens’ death on an amateurish video and sent at least one Cabinet member out to say the same.

Russia behind Muslim unrest?

The Obama administration can’t seem to keep its stories straight. First they said the Muslim riots in Egypt and Libya, and the death of Ambassador Chris Stevens, were all due to an amateurish trailer to a movie that few have ever seen. Now they must admit that the Ambassador, at least, was a terrorist target. Furthermore, riots did not start in Libya independent of the Benghazi attack. But why did riots start elsewhere? Why are they still going on? Did Obama make mistakes? Yes. But someone planned all those riots. And now a new lead suggests who might be behind that planning: Russia.

Aid to those who want to kill us

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – sometimes it seems like we’re living in an Alice in Wonderland-type universe where up is down and down is up. The recent events in Muslim countries since 9/11 have bolstered that point of view. Amid the chants of “Death to America” and the recurring violence, we have been repeatedly scorned and threatened by 10 countries that we are sending foreign aid to – two of which we recently helped earn their independence.

Middle East, Obama, and oil

After all that has been written and said about Obama and the Middle East crisis, the entire ordeal still mystifies me.

Terrorist attack: ask the obvious questions

On September 11, 2012, America experienced another terrorist attack, but this time it was on foreign soil. To be clear, our embassies in foreign lands are supposed to be “American.” They are a little piece of real estate that is an extension of American soil in whatever land they are located. Many questions are arising amidst this tragedy.

Anti-Islam film mystery deepens

The anti-Islam film that, some say, started the Middle East riots puzzles everyone who talks about it. That film has shown once only, a year ago. Viewers can find only a 14-minute trailer and a 7-minute news segment on Egyptian TV. At first, no one knew the filmmaker’s real name. But word comes now that the filmmaker was a government snitch. So when Secretary of State Clinton says that the government had nothing to do with making the film, that might or might not be correct.

The beginning of what hopefully will end the nuclear threat against the annihilation of Israel at the hands of the murderous Iranian Regime is about to commence.

The riots at United States embassies in the Muslim world spread overnight to Yemen, and broke out again in Cairo. Also, the Associated Press might have found the real man behind the Innocence of Muslims film. If so, they have a surprise for most readers: he is not an Israeli Jew, but a Coptic Christian.

Yesterday, Muslim street mobs scaled the wall of the United States Embassy in Cairo and attacked and burned the United States Mission in Benghazi, Libya. The mob even killed the US Ambassador to Libya when he came to get his employees out of the mission. And US officials stunned the world—by apologizing to the mobs.
