Why haven’t they caught Osama bin Ladin? You ever wonder?

The idea that a man can conduct a global jihad against the most powerful country in the world from remote places in the world with just a cell phone and or a courier to take his electronic messages all over the world should now be considered  no more than a myth.  Technology exists that enables us to know the exact location of any and all cellphones, what’s being said on them and what’s being said around them!  Check out the video on the link above.

Israelis Consider American Jews First Jewish Then Israeli

At least that’s what they’ve told Rahm Emmanuel.

National Union chairman Ya’acov “Ketzele” Katz sent a letter to White House chief-of-staff Rahm Emanuel last week admonishing him not to forget his Jewish and Israeli origins.

Katz claims that in a private meeting with the unnamed leader, Emanuel said, “In the next four years, there will be a peace agreement with the Palestinians on the basis of two states for two peoples, and it does not matter to us who is the prime minister.”

In the letter, a Hebrew version of which was provided to The Jerusalem Post by Katz’s parliamentary aide, Katz wrote: “For many Israelis, this report is a cause for worry because it reveals a condescending attitude toward our prime minister and Israeli public opinion. This is an attitude that Israel does not expect from a real friend such as the US, and all the more so from an Israeli Jew who has succeeded in being appointed White House chief-of-staff.”

Katz was hinting that Emanuel should use his influence to protect Israeli interests, which, he believes, are best served by preventing the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.

One has to wonder how many other Jewish Americans in government have been given the same message and acted on that message/hint/threat, that Israeli/Jewish interests supersede American interests. Perhaps that explains the current hot water Congresswomen Jane Harman finds herself in as she tried to make deals with a member of the Israeli government to influence American policy in exchange for his help in gaining her an influential position in government, the House Committee on Intelligence no less!  The Harman episode is dramatic because it reveals how the US government was keeping wiretapes on Israeli espionage in this country before 911 which representative Harman got caught up in.  Most likely other Jewish Americans used their influence to shut this aspect of wiretapping, i.e. connections between Israeli officials and the events of 911 out of the public domain and for many that is considered their job!

Jihad- Jewish style

The religion of peace is like an epitaph Islamophobes almost spit out to denigrate Islam while making a commentary on the latest news surrounding Islam and Muslims.  We hear a heckuva whole lot about jihad and Islam but not many people reveal the jihad of other religions and groups of people equally bent on destroying peoples, societies and civilizations.

The Islamic Workplace has a series of articles that outline the jihad undertaken by the Israelis against the Palestinians earlier this year, and if you didn’t know any better you’d think you were listening to what the media says is the refrain most often repeated by Muslims!!

Soldiers interviewed by the Military Institute and Breaking the Silence also allege the army’s chief rabbi used an inflammatory religious and nationalist rhetoric to encourage soldiers to see the Gaza attack as a sacred fight to expel non-Jews from Jewish land.
The rabbi’s office passed out booklets during the war that among other things urged soldiers not to show mercy to the enemy. The army’s chief rabbi, Brigadier General Avichai Ronsky, is from Itamar, a West Banks settlement with a history of right-wing activism. Former soldier Yehuda Shaul says the picture that emerges is of a chief military rabbi promoting the fight in Gaza as a holy war.
“[There is] a biblical ban on surrendering a single millimeter of it [the Land of Israel] to gentiles, though all sorts of impure distortions and foolishness of autonomy, enclaves and other national weaknesses. We will not abandon it to the hands of another nation, not a finger, not a nail of it.”
Such rhetoric is usually applied to Muslims’ justification for fighting infidels in and on the Arabian peninsula and as such is met with stern disapproval from a frightened and galvanized west.  Would that the same call to action against Israeli/Jewish extremism be sounded in the halls of US government and on the pages of prominent American publications.  It’s not difficult to see however why that is not the case!

Cable TV and terrorism

A court in New York state has sentenced a man to almost six years in prison for placing Manar television on the cable satellite  system he operated.  The prosecution alleged Manar television through Javed Iqbal 45 year old  Pakistani immigrant living in the US since  he was a teenager  ran a

“sophisticated terrorist organization in all respects,” which had used its 24-hour channel to recruit members and suicide bombers and to raise money for weapons and operations.“He was, in a very real sense, Hezbollah’s man in New York City,” Mr. Snyder (federal prosecutor, Eric Snyder)  said.

It leads me to wonder how long will it be before the government goes and tracks down the people who subscribed to Manar television to charge them with crimes as well?  I would also think, using that same logic one could make the case for increased violence in American society is due to the influence of television and therefore broadcasters are some how legally responsible?  But that argument has been rejected for many years now except when it applies to terrorist broadcasters such as Manar.  Did the government point to any one crime on America’s shores that was inspired by Manar’s broadcasts? Did they even prove or show intent that a crime was going to be perpetuated against Americans here or abroad as a result of a Manar tv program? No….they didn’t have to.  It was sufficient enough to say because the entity is deemed terrorist by the government no one has the legal right to access it.  Draconian?  You betcha.  How long will it be before other forms of information are similarly branded and made off limits to the public at the expense of imprisonment?  Stay tuned.  For now, Mr. Iqbal’s adult entertainment channels are still accessible to the viewing public so grab your popcorn and anything else you can get your hands on and enjoy, without fear.
