Palestinians want peace? Israel is ready when they are

waving flag of israel

Mike McDaniel lays out the very clear cut case that Israel desires peace, but their enemies desire only Israels demise

Considering recent events, gentle readers, just a few random thoughts about Israel:

*If Arab–and Iranian–terrorists laid down their arms, peace.  If Israel did, genocide.

*If the kleptocrats of the United Nations didn’t have Israel to accuse of every crime they commit, they’d have nothing at all to say.

*Nowhere is fake, malicious news (take the link; you’ll see) more in evidence than in the international media’s coverage of Israel and the terrorists besieging the nation.

*The Palestinians continue to never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

*There will be peace with Israel one of two ways: when Israel’s enemies force Israel to utterly destroy them, or when they love their children more than they hate Jews.

So, you mean actually killing terrorists works?

Your stunningly non-shocking news of the day

With less than a year in office, President Trump has overseen massive gains against the Islamic caliphate, with the once-powerful terror state losing city after city.

ISIS once governed immense territory in Iraq and Syria, ruling over 8 million people and controlling profitable refineries, agriculture, smuggling routes, and arsenals.

Now, ISIS controls only 3 percent of Iraq and 5 percent of Syria. Their leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, is in hiding. American forces and regional allies have liberated key cities like Mosul, Raqqa, Tel Afar, and Rawa.

Brig. Gen. Andrew Croft, the ranking U.S. Air Force officer in Iraq, told Fox News he credits the Trump administration with providing the right leadership.

“The leadership team that is in place right now has certainly enabled us to succeed,” Croft said. “I couldn’t ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.”

And what does our military do best? Better than any military? Kill evil people

President Trump has allowed Defense Secretary James Mattis great latitude to work without micromanagement. Mattis, a former Marine Corps. General and Commander of United States Central Command, is the first senior military officer to serve as Defense Secretary since George Marshall in the ’50s.

The President’s hands-off approach has led to accelerated results. “It moved more quickly than at least I had anticipated,” Croft said. “We and the Iraqi Security Forces were able to hunt down and target ISIS leadership, target their command and control.”

Marine Col. Seth Folsom, who oversaw fighting in Al Qaim near the Syrian border, described feeling “liberated” under the new leadership.

“I never felt constrained. In a lot of ways, I felt quite liberated because we had a clear mandate and there was no questioning that.”

Brig. Gen. Robert “G-Man” Sofge, the top U.S. Marine in Iraq, echoed Folsom’s sentiment, saying commanders have “enjoyed not having to deal with too many distractions and there was no question about what the mission here in Iraq was.”

Meet the Spaniard who eliminated four Jihadists

Via Bearing Arms

The officer, who’s name has not been released for security reasons, was reportedly working overtime to earn some extra cash for his family when five men attempted to drive a car into a group of pedestrians in the Spanish seaside town. After the vehicle crashed into a police checkpoint, the men hopped out and began attacking innocent civilians with an axe and knives.

The officer was able to gun down four of the five terrorists, likely saving dozens of lives. The fifth terrorist, who stabbed a woman in the neck before fleeing the scene, was shot and killed by another policeman.

It was later revealed that the officer is a former member of the Spanish army’s elite infantry unit, the Legion, and is an expert in rifles, machine guns and pistols.

However, El Mundo newspaper described him as being “very quiet” and “not the Rambo prototype of an elite officer.”

One of his fellow officers told the Daily Mail, “He’s a quiet man who does not consider himself a hero. He says he was just doing his job. But the truth is he saved a great many lives.”

Who says heroes are dead

Something useful did come out of the Comey circus

Some very valuable information came out. But the Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, could not care less. Their agenda is to delegitimize Trump, and block his agenda, period! Hundreds of terrorist investigations they care far less about

2,000 cases.

That was the most overlooked revelation to come from the testimony of the former FBI director. While the media parsed every Comey hiccup to bolster its election conspiracy theories, it ignored that number.

Comey stated that there were around 2,000 terrorism investigations. 1,000 of those came from “home grown violent extremism” with no evidence of contact with foreign terrorists. Another 1,000 had “some contact with foreign terrorists”. 300 from that 2,000 had come to America as refugees.

Two-thirds of the refugee terrorists were from Iraq. The other third were mainly from the six countries named in President Trump’s travel pause which left-wing activist judges have unconstitutionally halted.

Again, fighting terrorism is less important than smearing Trump to Democrats it seems. And such bastardism might lead us to become, Europe

In the UK, there are 3,000 potential terrorists being investigated, but 20,000 others had been “subjects of interest” in the past. We don’t know how large that second number is in the United States. But it’s probably not too far off the British one. In which case we also have over 20,000 potential terrorists.

But again, fighting Trump, and his common sense travel order is more important to Democrats than protecting this nation. If only they hated terrorists as much as they do Trump!

Did political correctness aid terrorism in Manchester?

Daniel Greenfield takes a long, hard look at the consequences of moral retardation

In the months before weeping little girls with nails in their faces were carried out of the Manchester Arena, the authorities of that city were hard at work fighting the dreaded threat of Islamophobia.

While Salman Abedi, the second-generation Muslim refugee terrorist who maimed and killed dozens in a brutal terrorist attack, stalked the streets wailing, “There is no god but Allah and Mohammed is the messenger of Allah”, Manchester police were busy with more important things.

The Greater Manchester Police are one of only two police forces to list Islamophobia as a hate crime category. Earlier this year, Chief Constable Ian Hopkins honored Tell Mama for fighting Islamophobia. Tell Mama had lost funding earlier when its claims of a plague of violent Islamophobia fell apart.

Shahid Malik, the chair of Tell Mama, had been photographed with the leader of Hamas. Appearing at the Global Peace and Unity conference, where plenty of terrorism supporters have promenaded, he boasted, “In 2005 we had four Muslim MPs. In 2009 or 2010 we’ll have eight or ten Muslim MPs. In 2014 we’ll have 16 Muslim MPs. At this rate the whole parliament will be Muslim.”

Last year, Hopkins had appeared at a Muslim Engagement and Development (MEND) event at the European Islamic Centre along with Azad Ali. Ali has praised Anwar Al-Awlaki and other Al Qaeda figures. He justified the murder of British and American soldiers, he praised Hamas and Hezbollah. Instead of arresting him, the Chief Constable appeared at the same forum with a terrorist supporter.

Also present was Greater Manchester Police Crime Commissioner and Interim Mayor Tony Lloyd who came by to talk about “eradicating hate”. This was at an event attended by Anas Altikriti of the Cordoba Foundation, who had backed terrorists murdering British soldiers and accused Jews of dual loyalty.

Tony Lloyd will be the Labour candidate in Rochdale; home of the Muslim sex grooming cover-up.

Both Manchester Mayor Burnham and Chief Constable Ian Hopkins had appeared at MEND events. MEND’s Director of Engagement is Azad Ali.

After the attack, Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham vowed on camera, “terrorists will never beat us”. The terrorists don’t need to beat Burnham. He’ll eagerly collaborate without so much as a single slap.

Go read it all, and marvel at how the left’s obsession with egalitarianism, and “tolerance”, and their overwhelming fear of being accused of discrimination is making it easier for Jihadists to do their evil deeds.

Happy Dance time! Mother of All Bombs death toll rising!

Yes, more dead Jihadi swine is great news. Via The Right Scoop

The Associated Press says the death toll is rising!

The number of militants killed in an attack by the largest non-nuclear weapon ever used in combat by the U.S. military has risen to 94, an Afghan official said Saturday.

Ataullah Khogyani, spokesman for the provincial governor in Nangarhar, said the number of Islamic State group dead was up from the 36 reported a day earlier. A Ministry of Defense official had said Friday the number of dead could rise as officials assessed the bomb site in Achin district.

“Fortunately there is no report of civilians being killed in the attack,” Khogyani said.

The U.S. attack on a tunnel complex in remote eastern Nangarhar province near the Pakistan border killed at least four IS group leaders, Khogyani said. He said a clearance operation to assess the site of the attack was continuing.

Team Obama approves of massive shipment of Uranium to Iran

i-see-stupid-people

Say it with me kids! What could possibly go wrong?

Obama can still inflict a great deal of damage between now and January 20 — and he appears bent on doing it:

Iran is to receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from Russia to compensate it for exporting tons of reactor coolant, diplomats say, in a move approved by the outgoing U.S. administration and other governments seeking to keep Tehran committed to a landmark nuclear pact.

If there is a Nobel Prize for sheer stupidity, trying to prevent the ayatollahs from building nuclear weapons by bribing them with uranium ought to win it.

Two senior diplomats said the transfer recently agreed by the U.S. and five other world powers that negotiated the nuclear deal with Iran foresees delivery of 116 metric tons (nearly 130 tons) of natural uranium. U.N. Security Council approval is needed but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.

He really does hate this coutry
