Gotta love the way Ann Coulter can skewer the self-important:
After decades of comparing Nixon to Hitler, Reagan to Hitler and Bush to Hitler, liberals have finally decided it is wrong to make comparisons to Hitler. But the only leader to whom they have applied their newfound rule of thumb is: Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
While Ahmadinejad has not done anything as starkly evil as cut the capital gains tax, he does deny the Holocaust, call for the destruction of Israel, deny the existence of gays in Iran and refuses to abandon his nuclear program despite protests from the United Nations. That’s the only world leader we’re not allowed to compare to Hitler.
And the ditz who wants to be President and thinks talking to a kook like this with no pre-conditions is just fine?
Liberals view talk as an end in itself. They never think through how these talks will proceed, which is why Chamberlain ended up giving away Czechoslovakia. He didn’t leave for Munich planning to do that. It is simply the inevitable result of talking with madmen without a clear and obtainable goal. Without a stick, there’s only a carrot.
The only explanation for liberals’ hysterical zealotry in favor of Obama’s proposed open-ended talks with Ahmadinejad is that they seriously imagine crazy foreign dictators will be as charmed by Obama as cable TV hosts whose legs tingle when they listen to Obama (a condition that used to be known as “sciatica”).
Because, really, who better to face down a Holocaust denier with a messianic complex than the guy who is afraid of a debate moderated by Brit Hume?
Israeli leaders shunned former U.S. President Jimmy Carter during a visit because of his plans to meet Hamas and Israel’s secret service declined to assist U.S. agents guarding him, U.S. sources said on Monday.
“They’re not getting support from local security,” one of the sources said, on condition of anonymity.
Why would he need security from a bunch of apartheid-creating Jews anyway? His buddies in Hamas are completely believable and they have a little bit of paradise there on the Mediterranean. Why would he feel like he needs security? All I hope is that the Israelis put a tracker on him somewhere so they can properly greet those peace-loving people he’s visiting.
Iranian hardline students have offered rewards totalling a million dollars for the “execution” of three Israeli military leaders over the deadly strikes on Gaza, the student news agency ISNA reported on Monday.
The group is even encouraging Iranians to donate their kidneys to increase the bounties on the heads of Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak, Mossad spy agency director Meir Dagan and military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin.
Bending over for Hamas terrorists, Bernard Kouchner demonstrates why no one believes anything France says:
French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner was in Gaza yesterday and made a total jerk of himself. Kouchner told reporters that Israel shouldn’t inspect trucks from Gaza because ‘not all of them are carrying bombs.’
How does that work out at French airports? Do you want to just inspect “some” of the luggage and hope that you found the ones with the bombs? Idiot.
Living next to thugs that want to murder you and your children makes you pay more attention. Of course, the yawn that will greet this news in the US and the media will be apparent as a “dog that didn’t bark”.
Israel’s Mossad spy agency estimates Iran will develop a nuclear weapon within three years and continue to provide rockets to regional armed groups, a newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Dagan’s estimate of Iran’s nuclear ambitions differs sharply from an assessment by the US intelligence community late last year that said Iran had mothballed its nuclear weapons programme in 2003.
In Monday’s report, Dagan also predicted that Tehran would continue to supply more and better rockets and training to Palestinian militant groups in the Gaza Strip.
“Syria is improving its surface-to-surface missile system and today the quantity of missiles and rockets is twice as large as two years ago,” Dagan said, according to Maariv.
Israel has long perceived Iran as its greatest threat, especially after Iran’s President Mahmud Ahmadinejad relaunched its nuclear enrichment programme and repeatedly predicted the demise of the Jewish state.
There’s just a wonderful post over at Breath of the Beast on our enemies both internal and external. The whole thing is great – some highlights:
Multiculturalists will ask, “Who are we to pass judgment on another culture?” If the criteria are not obvious enough, I’ll mention a few:
Freedom of speech
Freedom of religion
Freedom of association
Legal, social and economic equality for Women
There are more but those will do for a start. If we could just stop pretending that we are all the same and put a real effort into understanding which countries have those attributes and which do not, we could begin to understand who our enemies are and why.
The multicultural, politically correct elite want to prevent that discussion. This is how multiculturalism strikes at the heart of western democracy- it insists that the unqualified, the unwilling and the unready nations should never be identified by those characteristics. As a result, they are afforded the same access, independence and respect as the most culturally advanced.
Western Civilization must stop behaving as if we don’t feel entitled to live unless every other culture wants to be like us. We have to understand that life is always and always has been a competition for survival. If we want our children and our values to survive, it is time to act while we are still able to win easily.
Just wonderful stuff – you need to read the whole thing.
On at least two occasions this week, Hamas staged scenes of darkness as part of its campaign to end the political and economic sanctions against the Gaza Strip, Palestinian journalists said Wednesday.
In the first case, journalists who were invited to cover the Hamas government meeting were surprised to see Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and his ministers sitting around a table with burning candles.
In the second case on Tuesday, journalists noticed that Hamas legislators who were meeting in Gaza City also sat in front of burning candles.
But some of the journalists noticed that there was actually no need for the candles because both meetings were being held in daylight.
“They had closed the curtains in the rooms to create the impression that Hamas leaders were also suffering as a result of the power stoppage,” one journalist told The Jerusalem Post. “It was obvious that the whole thing was staged.”
Please re-open the border to the transit of petrochemicals so that we can get back to the important work at hand: Terrorizing the 1.5 million souls trapped in Gaza under our guns, unprovoked rocket and sniper fire into your country – which really shouldn’t be a country at all, but we’ll be getting around to that in good time – and generally making things miserable for all concerned. Everywhere.
PS – The kids are coming along nicely. We’re hoping to get them over to your place soon.
