Women, Feminism, Abortion and the Politics of Terror

For the last five years Democrats have been accusing Republicans of 'terrifying' Americans with the threat of terrorism to win support for their agenda. Democrats ought to know because terrifying Americans has been the basis of their own power base. The Democrats have used the Federal government to build up programs and legislation and departments doled out to specific groups and then threaten them with the prospect of having it taken away should the Republicans get in. Like drug dealers, they've made people dependent and then undermined their self-esteem to the point that they're no longer able to make any decision without their approval. Modern Democrats have built their power base by peddling fears to niche demographics, to Blacks and Hispanics, to Women and Liberal Jews and Gays. If Republicans have spent the past decades repeating, "Vote For Us To Keep Communism and Islamic Terrorism Away," Democrats have spent it saying "Vote For Us To Keep Re

A Topic on Three T's; Torah, Torture and Terrorism

Once upon a time three nice people wrote an op-ed for the Jewish Week. By nice, I don't at all mean that they're nice people. In fact as people go, they're pretty much the opposite of nice. These three people tend to put 'Rabbi' in front of their name, not because they are, but because it's also the fashionable thing to do these days. They are of course outraged. What are they outraged by? The refugees of Gush Katif? The thousands dead on 9/11? The millions murdered and tortured to death by Saddam and the Ayatollahs? Don't be silly. It's not fashionable to be outraged by such things. That is the resort of extremists, patriots and such awful people who are responsible for everything that's wrong with the world. No they're outraged because terrorists are being waterboarded in Guantanamo Bay in order to obtain information from them to stop future attacks. Are you outraged yet? Well they are and they (they being Jeremy Kalmanofsky, David Rosenn and M

The Muslim Mind is the Mind of a Rapist

The nation's most senior Muslim cleric blamed immodestly dressed women who don't wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned "meat" that attracts voracious animals. In a Ramadan sermon, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame. Sheik Hilali said there were women who "sway suggestively" and wore make-up and immodest dress ... "and then you get a judge without mercy (rahma) and gives you 65 years". "But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he asked. "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat? "The uncovered meat is the problem." The sheik then said: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no p

Noach and the Natural Order of the World

When reading Parshat Noach, there are basic questions that arise. G-d has decided to destroy all flesh upon the earth, why is Noach then burdened with the task of transporting the animals to safety. Why is it his job in the first place? Part of the answer requires asking why was Noach spared in the first place. We're not given any details what made Noach special except for his father Lemach's statement about Noach's name. He names him Noach, or Rest, saying; "He will comfort us from our work and the toil of our hands, which cometh from the ground which the LORD hath cursed." It sounds as if this means that life is about to get easier for mankind but instead what happens is a great flood that destroys all life on earth. When the flood is done and Noach has returned to the earth and brings sacrifices to G-d, G-d states that he will not again curse the earth because of man and that all the seasons of life on nature Lo Yishbatu, Will Not Stop. Yishbatu comes from the

Alert: Mistranslation of Sheikh Hilali's Sermon or Why You Can't Trust Arab Translators

The 'official' translation of Sheikh Hilaly's sermon that's being widely distributed across numerous websites and blogs has a fundamental error, that also demonstrates why Arab translations can't be trusted. Sheikh El-Hilaly's sermon referenced the Muslim gang rape cases blaming the women and describing them as uncovered meat. Hilaly argued that he was referring to adultery rather than rape and the translation, mistranslates him as describing adultery but when in viewed in context this translation is clearly FALSE. All blogs using this translation should be aware of that. This is the official SBS translation . " When it comes to adultery (rape), it’s 90 percent the woman’s responsibility. Why? Because a woman owns the weapon of seduction. It’s she who takes off her clothes, shortens them, flirts, puts on make-up and powder and takes to the streets, God protect us, dallying. It’s she who shortens, raises and lowers. Then, it’s a look, a smile, a conversation

President announces Appease-A-Muslim-Day

USA Today Jill Cavanaugh In coordination with Islamic advisers and to celebrate the presence of Muslims in America, the President has signed into law the official commemoration of Appease-A-Muslim Day. "Appease a Muslim Day," said the President, "is just our way of thanking our fellow Muslim-Americans for not having killed us in large numbers on our own soil over the last year. They've given us the great gift of peace of mind and now it's our turn to give back." With the support of the Federal government and the Department of Appeasing Muslims, states and local municipalities will all be participating in Appease-A-Muslim Day. As a good citizen why aren't you participating too? Authorized activities for the day include such fun things as; 1) Loudly proclaiming that Allah is the one true deity and that Mohammed is his prophet. 2) Boycotting Israel, Thailand, France, Denmark (for full list of nations being boycotted by Muslims please visit www.theummahwilld

Spanish Blogger Charged Criminally for Supporting Israel

"Galician blogger Alejandro de Llano related in his blog that he was charged with the crime of supporting Israel. Two years ago, the Galician nationalist Major of Oleiros began a campaign whose slogan was “Stop the beast. Sharon murderer” and “Stop the new Nazis”. The Major is known for his love for Castro and Palestinians. Alejandro de Llano wrote the Major to criticize his campaign and to tell him that this could be even a crime of deriving public money to support international terrorism. That was two years ago. On October 13th, 2006, he has received a summons from a Criminal Judge announcing him that he is held responsible of the crime of supporting Israel and also of acting against Palestinian people. They did not give him a copy of the summons and they did not let him make any copies."

Russia's Putin - Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

Several hundred children from across the country took part in a “Children draw Putin” competition for his 54th birthday with the top 100 pictures going on display in the capital. What isn't being reported is that the competition was actually an assignment for schoolchildren. These were the following 'themes' they were encouraged to incorporate in their work. 'Putin with his black Labrador Kony, Putin on a fighter jet, Putin on a submarine, Putin greets the launching of the rocket complex “Bulava.” ,Putin with the Patriarch Alexiy II, Putin with wife and children, Putin with Bush or any other foreign leader Putin as an intelligence officer, Putin wearing a kimono robe, Putin skiing, etc... “I love Russia!” proclaimed one picture, with Putin shown releasing doves on a hillside. The president was also depicted in Judo garb with a black belt, fixing the engine of his car or holidaying in a Black Sea resort. Some took a more worldly line — with one showing the president, als

Who is George Soros

Behind the Anti-Israel disguised as a Pro-Israel lobby I wrote about last week is George Soros, a shadowy figure who spends tens of millions of dollars to make sure countries elect the kinds of governments he likes. Last time around George Soros threw $25 million at the Democrats and liberal organizations like MoveOn in order to defeat Bush. This Cardinal Richelieu of the left has spent over 2.5 billion dollars on institutions, think tanks and lobbies that promote his agenda. Yet despite being ethnically Jewish, Soros has never visited Israel and never displayed anything but contempt for Zionism. After decades of ignoring the existence of the Jewish people though, Soros has become interested in Jews again or at least in Israel. And when the devil gets interested in you, it's never a good thing. Soros didn't begin exactly contributing money to Jewish causes (something he reserves for left wing activists and Eastern European academics) but he began giving speeches and writing ed

Shabak Agents Assault Olmert Protesters in Moscow Synagogue

(Protester with sign reading 'Olmert Where Are The Captured Soldiers') An incident that is generally going unreported in the media or on the rare occasions that is being reported is being dismissed as a 'disturbance created by hooligans' (a Soviet era euphemism) was the assault by Shabak agents on Beitar activists protesting Olmert's Russian visit at the Moscow Great Synagogue. In a scene more reminiscent of KGB crackdowns on protesting Jews, on the 18th of October at 9 o'clock, as Olmert was speaking 15 members of the Moscow branch of the Beitar movement stood up on the balcony of the Ezrat Nashim with signs reading 'Olmert Betrayed the Captured Soldiers and the Residents of Sderot', 'Olmert Where Are The Captured Soldiers' and 'You Lost, Now Resign.' As soon as they unrolled the signs, they were attacked by Shabak agents who tore away their signs and tore them up, assaulting both male and female protesters, tearing up the signs, twisti

Thank Goodness for ABC News

If it wasn't for those intrepid folks at ABC News, we might you know have to assume that the FBI is possibly questioning 'Something' instead of 'Someone', interrogating chairs, tables and other inanimate objects. Thanks to ABC News we know they're interrogating someone, thus a human being, possibly male, possibly female, possibly of any conceivable race or age. Thank you ABC News.

Thank the Devil for the Pro-Israel Left

Word is that evil Billionaire George Soros is coordinating with the Bronfman family of intermarried bootleggers a plan to set up a dovish alternative lobbying organization to AIPAC consisting of such notoriously Pro-Israel organizations as American Friends of Peace Now, the Israel Policy Forum, Brit Tzedek v'Shalom, the Religious Action Center and the Official President Ahmedanijad Fan Club (complete with glow in the dark decoder ring.) Now if these folks were honest (and if June happened in the middle of July) they'd just call themselves a Pro-Palestinian Lobby or merge with CAIR to form a supervillain group that sit on the top floors of skyscrapers and issue constant press releases demanding that Israel withdraw from everywhere on earth except Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Unaccountably though they insist on calling themselves Pro-Israel instead. Probably because like gay Republicans, they know that overall values have diminished a lot but still not to the extent that a large scale An

The Price of War: Paris and Iraq

For the last half-decade liberals have been lecturing us that we need to be more like the French. To avoid war and seek peace with our enemies. To oppose Israel, shrug of terrorism and go about life with that Gallic casualness. As proof of the alternative they point at the casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan, the thousands of US soldiers killed and wounded in battle, the disruption to our society, the constant fear of attack. But of course the thing about war is that when the enemy is determined to kill you, you don't get to choose between war and peace, you only get to choose the terrain of battle. You can either take the initiative and go to them or wait for them to come to you. After they came to us in New York, we went to them in Afghanistan and Iraq. The French were determined to keep sitting where they were believing they could sit the storm out by fearsomely working to counter the US. Did it work? While American troops are fighting in Iraq, French police are fighting in Paris

Persistence of Evil Vision: Why Liberals Justify Murder

Behind a lot of the sympathy we see directed at criminals and terrorists is the underlying false premise that equates their motives and morality with ours. We assume that they are people just like ourselves, that their humanity and innate morality is equivalent to our own. It is only 'circumstances' which have forced them to steal, to kill, to molest children, to blow themselves up in crowded streets. It is not they who are to blame but the 'circumstances.' You might argue that this line of argument goes back to class warfare, to the French revolution, to Communism, to Clarence Darrow and the entire spread of liberalism across Europe and America. Where the right divided up sinners from saints, the left argued that the sinners were not truly any different than the saints but only societal hypocrisy and economic and social divisions maintained the illusion and the circumstances to insure that division. In reality both sides were partly right. Sometimes people are stea

Is it 1939 in Britain yet?

Lord Janner in Parliament Lord Granville Janner was President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, representing most British Jews for 6 years. He's the founder of the Commonwealth Jewish Council and Chairman of the Holocaust Educational Trust. In short he's the most prominent and senior openly Jewish politician in Britain whose Jewishness is a major part of his identity who has repeatedly spoken out on Jewish issues. On the 27th Lord Janner got into an argument with Lord Brammall in one of the rooms adjoining the Lords chamber over Israel. Lord Brammall, who was the Chief of the Defense Staff during that heroic era in English history known as the Falklands War has never missed an opportunity to get in a rant about Israel, no matter what the topic might actually be. To give you a sense of his style, on January 16th 2003, when the topic was Reform of the Palestinian Authority, Lord Brammal in the predictable style of terrorist advocates made this convoluted remark

Newsflash: Score One for the Good Guys

It's a small victory but it's worth noting : The plan to enforce Islamic law by legitimizing Muslim cabbies refusal to pick up people in violation of Islamic law has been jettisoned due to public outcry. Thanks to all the readers of this blog who emailed, called and did their part to keep a part of this country free. "(BUSINESS WIRE)--A proposed pilot program aimed at preventing travelers from being denied taxi service because they have alcohol in their possession has not and will not be implemented, Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) Executive Director Jeff Hamiel said today. "The test program was developed in concert with representatives from the Muslim American Society and airport taxi industry in an effort to ensure travelers are not refused cab service for carrying alcohol," Hamiel said. "However, based on public response to the proposed test program, it is clear that its implementation could have unintended and significant negative impacts on the

An Open Letter to My Dear Darling Mr. Rieger

(since it seems to be the fashion among bloggers lately to write love letters to Mr. Rieger (annual salary $705,000 paid by your charitable donations)...not to be left out, here's mine.) From: Paul of Tarsus, Rabbi Stephen Wise, Adam Shapiro, Finkie Kochleffel, Subject: Lavish Praises for Distribution of emergency help money. Dear Darling Mr. Rieger, I am writing this letter after reading an article by Ms. Helen Freedman of AFSI that can be read in its entirety here . Ms. Freedman a well known lunatic right wing extremist complains that the UJC has chosen to distribute aid to both Jewish Israeli and Arab citizens of Northern Israel with a THIRD of the money going to Arabs. How dare Ms. Freedman suggest that the ever loyal Arab citizens of Israel not have a FULL and EQUAL share in all aid monies provided by Jews for the sake of their brethren? Is she really suggesting that Jewish donations should only go to Jews, rather than the Arabs who cheered when the missiles fell and when th

Cab Jihad continues: Muslim Cabbies Around the World Discriminate Against the Blind

I recently reported on Muslim cabbies controlling 75 percent of the cabs outbound from Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and refusing rides to passengers carrying alcohol as a violation of Islamic law in Islamic Law: It Can't Happen Here, Right? I warned then that, " stages. Muslim cabbies can begin with alcohol because there's already a suspicion of it in Western societies. It's a short step from barring passengers with alcohol to barring passengers with ham sandwiches. According to Islam both are forbidden after all. Then transport to women they consider immodestly dressed, to Israelis, to people sporting crosses, etc. There's a lot of things Sharia, Islamic Law, forbids after all." Well as it turns out the next step is refusing transport to blind people with seeing eye dogs because among the many things Islam hates, it hates dogs. ‘Unclean’ guide dog banned by Muslim cab driver . "A Muslim minicab driver refused to take a blind passenger

The Foley Follies - The Democrats Bark and the Foley Circus Rides On

"Foley Investigation Heating Up," "More Foley Revelations," "GOP Knew Foley Ate Babies." The media has with predictable abandon transformed itself into the 'All-Foley-All-The-Time" radio station and 'All The Foley News That's Unfit To Print.' None of this has anything remotely to do with the actual importance of the case but a media whose press services report altercations with Paris Hilton as a leading headline don't remotely case about that anymore. If Walter Cronkite injected liberal bias into his stories, modern anchormen are nothing more than blow dried male and female models who are barely capable of reading from a teleprompter without stumbling and their scripts are written for them by Ivy League Harvard grad producers who only took this job because they couldn't get a job writing for the Simpsons. The Foley story was held back by those in the know and then 'blown up' in order to impact the elections. After takin

Top 10 Things Democrats Would Be Saying if Rep. Mark Foley was a Democrat

10. Character doesn't matter 9. A politician's sex life is his own buisness. What's your problem with it anyway, are you a homophobe? 8. While tens of thousands are dying in Iraq, we're focusing on some supposed emails between consenting adults. 7. We voted against the pedophilia, before we voted for the pedophilia. 6. The whole thing is a vast right wing conspiracy. 5. If she had been a female intern, no one would have thought twice about it. 4. Just like the Chandra Levy case, this is sensationalistic media coverage meant to victimize a Democrat. 3. When will the Religious Right finally stop persecuting same-sex couples? 2. NO WAR FOR OIL!!! NO WAR FOR OIL!!! NO WAR FOR OIL!!! 1. He really thought he was IM'ing Cindy Sheehan. ----------------now hypocrisy comes in two flavors---------------------------

Vayetzei Yaakov Mi'Beer Sheva - The Passing of Rabbi Joseph Singer

' And Jacob went out from Beer-sheba and went to Haran ' - וַיֵּצֵא יַעֲקֹב, מִבְּאֵר שָׁבַע; וַיֵּלֶךְ, חָרָנָה Why, is the age old question asked, do we need to be told that he left Beer Sheva. It would be enough for us to know that he went to Haran. Is it not understood that in going to Haran, he also left Beer Sheva? Yet Rashi says that in telling us that he left Beer Sheva, it is telling us that when a Tzaddik leaves a city, panah hodah, panah zivah, panah hadrah , its crowning glory, its splendor goes out with him leaving the city more empty than ever. On Erev Yom Kippur Rabbi Joseph Singer left New York City for the last time. Panah Hodah. Panah Zivah. Panah Hadrah. Lama Neamar Tzaddik Nistar, why do we say a Tzaddik, a righteous man, is hidden . Ki Le'Anshei Haolam Hu Nistar Asher Lo Rotzu Li'Reot Otoi. For he is hidden from the people of the world who do not wish to see him. Rabbi Joseph Singer was a refugee from Poland, he fled Nazis and Communists
