David French lays out the very ugly truth about who was partnering with the bitter Congresswomen
The most important element of the story is the fact that two American congresswomen shunned a bipartisan congressional delegation to Israel to go on an independent trip to Israel sponsored by vicious anti-Semites. Another important element of the story is that, as of today, the mainstream media have whitewashed Omar and Tlaib’s vile associations.
Writing yesterday, the Washington Post said that “Omar and Tlaib’s trip to Jerusalem and the West Bank was planned by Miftah, a nonprofit organization headed by Palestinian lawmaker and longtime peace negotiator Hanan Ashrawi.” The New York Times described it as an organization “headed by a longtime Palestinian lawmaker.” In its editorial, the New York Times editorial board identified it as a group “that promotes ‘global awareness and knowledge of Palestinian realities.’”
Sounds OK right? Who could oppose this? But what the media tells us is not the whole story
This is a whitewash. Thanks to a Twitter thread from the Washington Examiner’s Seth Mandel — who pointed to multiple additional sources — I started looking at the articles and views published on the Miftah website, and it was like peeling an onion of evil. There was layer upon layer of vile anti-Semitism.
First, the group actually published blood libel, posting an article that accused “the Jews [of using] the blood of Christians in the Jewish Passover.” When pro-Israel bloggers condemned the article, Miftah first claimed that the attacks against the piece were part of a “smear campaign” and minimized the reference to blood libel as merely “briefly addressed.”
The organization later issued a more complete apology, but we’ve barely gotten started with this vile group. It’s also published an American neo-Nazi treatise called “Who Rules America: The Alien Grip on Our News and Entertainment Media Must Be Broken” (archived here).
As Vox’s Jane Coaston explained, “the original source was National Vanguard, a neo-Nazi group founded in 2005 in Charlottesville by members of the National Alliance.” The National Alliance “was for a time the best financed and best organized white nationalist group in America.” And to give you a sense of its ideology, here are two paragraphs from the treatise:
The Jew-controlled entertainment media have taken the lead in persuading a whole generation that homosexuality is a normal and acceptable way of life; that there is nothing at all wrong with White women dating or marrying Black men, or with White men marrying Asian women; that all races are inherently equal in ability and character — except that the character of the White race is suspect because of a history of oppressing other races; and that any effort by Whites at racial self-preservation is reprehensible.
We must oppose the further spreading of this poison among our people, and we must break the power of those who are spreading it. It would be intolerable for such power to be in the hands of any alien minority, with values and interests different from our own. But to permit the Jews, with their 3,000-year history of nation-wrecking, from ancient Egypt to Russia, to hold such power over us is tantamount to race suicide. Indeed, the fact that so many White Americans today are so filled with a sense of racial guilt and self-hatred that they actively seek the death of their own race is a deliberate consequence of Jewish media control.
I look forward to hearing apologists argue that these statements are merely critiques of “Israeli policies.”
Please, go read it all. David French eviscerates the propaganda and lays out the brutal truth about these two anti-Semitic women
There are many to be sure. Israel is a Western style nation, and respects women, and different religious groups as equals. Palestine? Not so much. Israel desires peace, Palestine, which is run by Hamas, supports terrorism. Israelis? Brave. Palestine? It pays the families of cowardly terrorists. The latest example comes via Bearing Arms
There’s a mindset that comes into play during a violent confrontation. Not everyone has it, but if you do, it means that you can prevail no matter what. It’s this inability to accept surrender in the face of unspeakable evil, an idea that even though you might go down, so will they. That ferocity is something that evil people usually don’t count on and it changes the equation of a violent encounter.
Take an incident recently in Israel.
Ari, as he was aptly named, fought terrorism to his last breath.
On September 16, 2018, while outside of an Israeli shopping mall, Ari Fuld was attacked by a Palestinian terrorist who ambushed him from behind and stabbed him four times in the back. “A lowly terrorist came up behind him, and in a cowardly way stabbed him,” Lior Shurka, a friend of the victim, described to TPS news agency.
Ari fought back. With gaping stab wounds in his back, he ran after the fleeing terrorist and shot him, effectively “neutralizing” the attacker, according to Israeli police. Another armed civilian assisted Ari and also shot the terrorist.
The name Ari translates to “lion” in Hebrew, “eagle” in Old Norse, and “brave” in Armenian. It is a name fit for a hero. Ari Fuld lived up to his name. Ari’s heroic actions stopped the terrorist from hurting anyone else.
Ari passed away from his wounds, but not before he put down the threat before the terrorist dirtbag could hurt anyone else. Ever.
He sent the terrorist to his 72 virgins despite being so grievously wounded. He refused to surrender, and if he were that badly wounded, no one would have thought ill of him if he had. He was dying, after all.
But Fuld didn’t. He drew his weapon and went to work, putting down the terrorist scum.
May God bless and keep Ari Fuld. Also, it should be noted that the family of the swine that attacked Fuld from behind, like a coward, was paid $3500 for his evil deed. The difference between Israel and palestine? It is very clear
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.

There is a popular talking point that claims the Palestinian protesters who rushed the Israeli border were unarmed and peaceful.
Photographic evidence and on-the-ground reporting belie this claim. We will get to that. First, let’s discuss what happened.
Palestinians living in Gaza under the governing control of Hamas, a terror group with a history of using human shields and child soldiers, were encouraged to rush the border with Israel during the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem
Israel, like all countries, has sovereign borders and maintains the right to protect them. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley made this point to the United Nations Security Council Tuesday. Haley said:
“I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council, who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact, the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”
Haley blamed Hamas for staging the protests. According to the Washington Examiner:
“Hamas maps and social media show the fastest routes to reach Israeli communities in case demonstrators make it through the security fence,” she said, citing media reports. “They have reported on Hamas messages over loudspeakers that urge demonstrators to burst through the fence, falsely claiming Israeli soldiers were fleeing, when in fact, they were not.”
But don’t take Nikki Haley’s word for it. Listen to the “protesters” themselves.
The Washington Post quoted a 23-year-old Palestinian saying:
“We are excited to storm and get inside,” said 23-year-old Mohammed Mansoura. When asked what he would do inside Israel, he said, “Whatever is possible, to kill, throw stones.”
Two other young men carried large knives and said they wanted to kill Jews on the other side of the fence.
With full knowledge of the violence Hamas was fomenting beyond their border, the IDF dropped pamphlets warning Palestinians to not approach the border fence and deadly force would be used if they did not heed the warning. It didn’t stop hundreds of Palestinians from lighting tires ablaze and charging the barricades. In response to the attacks, Israel has killed 59 Palestinians to date.
There are many, many more examples the The Daily Caller, go read them. And please note that the leftists always side with Hamas over Israel.Moral retardation anyone?

According to the U.N.’s top human rights body, Israel is the worst human rights violator in the world today. That’s the result of the latest session of the UN Human Rights Council which wrapped up in Geneva on Friday by adopting five times more resolutions condemning Israel than any other country on earth.
President Trump’s administration is currently a member of this reprehensible body. To borrow Elie Wiesel’s counsel to President Reagan not to pay his respects at a German graveyard containing Nazi SS remains: “That place, Mr. President, is not your place.”
The Bush administration refused to join the Council when it was created in 2006.
On March 31, 2009, President Obama – fully aware of its entrenched anti-Israel and anti-Jewish bias – made jumping on board one of his very first foreign policy moves. Moreover, in an unscrupulous attempt to control his successor, the former President obtained yet another three-year term for the United States on the Council that began on January 1, 2017.
Here are a few examples of exactly what this despicable body has stood for
In its history, the Council has condemned Israel more often than any other of the 192 UN states. Comparative totals after this session’s pogrom tell the story: Israel – 78 resolutions and decisions, Syria – 29, North Korea – 9, and Iran – 6. As for Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China, there’s nothing at all.
Go read the rest, it will sicken anyone with any grasp on the truth about Israel. The U.N. or Useless Nations as I call it, is about as devoid of a moral compass as anyone can imagine. The Trump Team has already announced plans to cut funding to the cesspool that the U.N. has become. I would suggest that every nation that values liberty, human rights, and that opposes terrorism, and Leftism should not only cut funding but get out of the Useless nation entirely.
Any two-state solution would require two engaged parties would it not? That is the flaw in such a solution to the Israeli/Palestinian situation. Only one side truly desires peace, the other desires nothing of the sort. David Harsanyi offers up these thoughts
When we act like both sides are equally culpable, the longstanding position of the United States — which is better than the longstanding position of most European nations, which place the entire culpability on Israel — we feed the problem. For one thing, we pervert our own ideals when supporting “peace deals” predicated on one side’s demand that their new state be cleared of Jews. It’s certainly what we do when we allow the United Nations to pass resolutions that maintain the presence of Jews in the Old City of Jerusalem is an “occupation.” (How inconsiderate of King David to provoke a yet-to-exist monotheistic faith that was 1,500-plus years from conquering his city, and around 2,800 years away from discovering Palestinian nationalism.)
David Friedman, the new Israel ambassador (a position that doesn’t hold much sway over policy), has called Palestinian statehood an “illusion.” When grilled on the subject during his Senate hearings, he explained: “I have expressed my skepticism solely on the basis of my perception of the Palestinians’ failure to renounce terror and accept Israel as a Jewish state.” This would be an entirely accurate assessment.
Yet this moral clarity has made Friedman unacceptable for many Democrats. New Jersey Democrat Sen. Robert Menendez, who sounded like some anti-Semitic McCarythite, went as far as demanding Friedman assure the committee his loyalty to the United States.
Many of the intractable disagreements that exist between Israel and the Palestinian Authority are driven by the inability of one side to come to terms with history. Palestinians will not have control over Jerusalem proper. There will be no “right of return.” Palestinians will not control their borders as France controls its borders — at least not any time soon. That’s because, in the end, no sane, civilized nation would help create a dangerous illberal state next door. Two events this week remind us how premature it is to .
