Osama bin Laden is dead

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

The world’s number 1 terrorist, the Islamist mass-murderer Osama bin Laden, has been killed in Pakistan.

At last.

Now the world community is finally free to concentrate its efforts on his heirs: Hizbollah’s Hassan Nasrallah in Lebanon, Hamas’s Khaled Meshal currently in hiding in Syria, and the President of Syria himself, Bashar al Assad, who has killed more of his own citizens in the past week than Libya’s mad dictator Gaddafi did in a month before NATO forces started their regime-change operation. An operation they are flatly refusing to repeat in Syria.

Fact-ignoring visit to Gaza Plaza

Monday, July 19th, 2010

What we have been saying to the Israelis for a long time is that we need to allow aid into this region … for people to have the things they are clearly lacking.”

EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton on the “plight” of Gaza Arabs.

Ashton’s statement came at the same time as a rocket fired by the Hamas government of Gaza killed a farm worker in Israel.

Ashton’s statement also coincided with the following revelations from Mideast media analyst Tom Gross, writing in his Mideast Dispatches.

Visit Tom Gross’s excellent website and see for yourself the evidence of what the Gaza Arabs are “clearly lacking” – they are apparently disoriented over the incomprehensibly wide choice of expensive restaurants, cafés, the packed markets, (the Gazans are “starving”, don’t forget) Olympic-sized swimming pools (there’s “no water in Gaza”, remember), air-conditioned shopping malls (the Gazans “have resorted to” tunneling underground to smuggle in life-supporting “essentials”, if you recall. These “essentials” are apparently limited to such vitals as Russian Kalashnikov automatic rifles, Syrian Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and Iranian missiles and mortars).

Of course, you may disregard Tom Gross as just another of these infamous Zionist colonialist imperialist propaganda disseminators. After all, Catherine Ashton, whose enormous salary we all help pay for, wouldn’t lie, would she? She’s a public officer employed by the EU. If she ignores Tom Gross and his documentary evidence, if she continues to talk about the poor, destitute and suffering Arabs of Gaza, there must be some truth to it, right?

Wrong.

Go to Tom Gross’s source. It’s in Arabic. But it’s OK, you don’t need to understand Arabic to understand pictures of sumptuous wealth, five-star hotel accommodation, excellent cuisine and well-stocked shops and market stalls.

Hamas maintains a few carefully prepared and meticulously preserved scenes of “deplorable conditions” to which all the media and all visiting dignitaries are taken.

It’s part of a well-oiled PR industry whose massive success puts the West’s expensive ad agencies to shame.

Of course, it all requires the target audience’s willing gullibility and total blindness – as well as deep-seated animosity towards the Jewish state – for this strategy to work.

And it certainly does work. Catherine Ashton, who is paid out of our pockets, still talks about the “suffering” of Gaza as she sits in a luxury limousine and swishes past lush gardens, well-stocked shopping malls, a newly inaugurated Olympic swimming pool, five-star hotels, world-class restaurants and superb beachfront properties.

Anyone know a good optician? Of course, it would have to be a cheap optician, because the EU cannot afford to pay an expensive optician for Catherine Ashton – all the EU’s funds (already exceeding 300 million euros for this year alone) have already been sent to the people of Gaza – while the unemployed of Greece, Spain and Ireland struggle to make ends meet in today’s dire economic straits.

Forget Turkey – “Palestine” is already the first Muslim entity to become a part of the EU. If for no other reason than that it has already swallowed a massive amount of the EU’s finances – without any quid pro quo obligations in the form of an agreement to discuss peace, the release of kidnapped Israeli Gilad Schalit who was taken from Israel while still a teenager, or a cessation of the merciless bombing campaign that continues to kill and maim civilians in Israel while EU bigwig Ashton is on a fact-ignoring mission in the region.

Since Iran matches the EU’s funding of the Hamas regime euro for euro, its now time for the rich people of Gaza to start sending aid to the poor of the EU.

Of course, life isn’t only a bed of roses for the people of Gaza – the vicious Hamas regime of Gaza have now banned women from smoking, from riding motorbikes, and from being seen in public without married male relatives to escort them.

Something else that Catherine Ashton chose not to comment on during her recent fact-ignoring mission to Gaza Plaza.

Later update:

Israel National News has an article on the same subject.

Raising the crazy flag

Thursday, July 15th, 2010

There’s a leadership crisis in the world.  

Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez is showing increasing signs of mental instability. Now he is challenging the status of the Vatican and the legitimacy of the Pope.  

The next Libyan leader, Saif al-Islam Gaddafi, is trying to surpass his father’s record in the crazy league. Gaddafi senior, Libya’s dictator Moammar Gaddafi, is perhaps best known for placing bombs aboard Pan Am flights, supplying arms and training for Irish terrorists and providing a safe haven for Palestinian mass-murderers. Not to be outdone in the crazy stakes, Gaddafi junior now claims his Islamic Republic has reached agreement with Israel on a plan for rebuilding Gaza and “restoring human rights” to the Hamas-occupied enclave.  

Here’s what one of Gaddafi’s lieutenants on board the Libyan “humanitarian aid” ship had to say about the value of human life:  

  

Gaza leader Ismail Haniyeh, whose Hamas terrorist group rose to power by slaughtering Fatah political opponents and which is currently imposing a Taliban-style Sharia law system in the Gaza Strip, says that he wholeheartedly supports the blockade-busting attempts of Libya, Turkey, the Lebanon, Iran and other equally undemocratic Muslim nations renowned throughout the world for their record on human rights abuses.  

The following film reveals how the Lebanon blatantly ignores the fundamental human rights of Palestinians, who are systematically denied the right to engage in specified professions, refused the right to own property, denied citizenship and declined the right to live where they want, even though they have been living in the Lebanon for up to 4 generations.  

  

Hamas leader Haniyeh’s own official TV station, meantime, Al-Aqsa TV, has been banned by France for its overt racism, its blatant anti-Semitism, its rabid support for terrorism as a political weapon, and its policy of eradication of the Jewish state of Israel as an absolute precondition for peace in the Middle East.  

Former Swedish Prime Minister and current Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, meantime, has an interesting take on human rights: the oppressed Iranians aren’t entitled to any, nor are the Kurds or Armenians of Syria and Turkey. Nor are the Jews of Israel, on whose homes and schools more than 10,000 missiles rained down courtesy of Gaza’s Hamas rulers until, after 7 years of constant bombardment, Israel responded militarily. 

According to Carl Bildt neither are human rights the preserve of the Tibetans of – well, China, actually, after China invaded Tibet and uprooted more than a million Tibetans from their homeland, transporting them to China and replacing them with a million Han Chinese. This ethnic cleansing has not merited a single comment by Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt. It goes without saying that Bildt does not feel the Cypriots are entitled to live a life without Turkish occupation – Turkey invaded and has occupied half of Cyprus for half a century now.

The only foreign affairs issue on which Foreign Minister Carl Bildt sees fit to pronounce judgement is Israel. And only in negative terms

Such are the leaders of the world today. 

There seems to be a pronounced shortage of leadership qualities in international politics. 

But there are crazies aplenty.
