Quick Takes: News You May Have Missed

During a radio interview this week, one of the most senior members of the Hamas terrorist organization said that a hospital next to his home protects him from assassination attempts by Israel.

Mahmoud Al-Zahar, who survived an assassination attempt in 2003, was asked on WABC Radio’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” whether he fears he will be targeted again, particularly in light of the eliminations of several other Hamas members this month.

“They already targeted me and they killed my first son,” replied Zahar. “And they targeted me and broke [my] backbone. And also in the last battle they tried to target me and they sent a small rocket.”

Zahar continued: “But the Jordanian hospital here was near my house, and I think there was a big protest between, and a big debate between, the Jordanian government and the Israeli government. That was the main cause not to attack our house.”

Immigration Reform… Or Else

Latinos and unions expect the passage in 2013 of comprehensive immigration reform, or amnesty for millions of illegals, declared a former adviser to President Obama whose union group has close ties to the Obama White House.

“We expect passage of comprehensive immigration reform next year,” declared Eliseo Medina, treasurer of the Service Employees International Union, or SEIU. “We don’t want promises; we don’t want debates. We expect action,” he said.

Medina added, “If Congress keeps erecting roadblocks in 2013, we will look elsewhere for leaders in the 2014 elections. The proof is tonight’s presidential election results.”

Medina made these comments at a meeting earlier this month of top union leaders while discussing strategy for Obama’s second term. His quotes were documented by the Communist Party USA’s People’s World magazine.

A former SEIU president, Andy Stern, was the most frequent visitor to the White House in 2009, according to White House visitor logs.

New Website Urges Class Warfare

A George Soros-funded radical think tank with close ties to the Democrat party has launched a new website urging politicians and activists to wage class warfare while hailing what it calls a new era in politics – the use of class warfare to win elections.

WageClassWar.org was launched last week by the Campaign for America’s Future, or CAF.

CAF’s co-director, Robert Borosage, explained the need for such a website. “America’s growing diversity and its increasingly socially liberal attitudes played a big role in this election. But looking back, we are likely to see this as the first of the class warfare.”

The website does not feature a mission statement and is unclear about exactly how the group will go about attempting to wage class warfare.

The site explains how Obama’s 2012 campaign utilized class warfare and set the stage for the deployment of such tactics in future elections.

“Obama’s campaign built its message on class war battles that broke out in the Republican primary, as challengers sought to bring down ‘the main from Bain,’ Mitt Romney,” notes the site.

“In the end, the keys to Obama’s reelection were his calls for raising the taxes of the wealthy and his support for reinvesting those revenues in education and jobs to rebuild the middle class and to protect programs like Medicare from cuts.”

The site hails Obama for having repeatedly portrayed Romney as a “walking example of the out-of-touch elite, an opponent of the auto industry bailout that saved an entire manufacturing sector, and a 1 percenter who would jeopardize social programs, education, and Medicare in order to cut taxes on his rich friends.”

Congresswoman Fears Terrorist Infiltration

A U.S. congresswoman is warning that while the world’s eyes are on Iran’s growing threat against Israel, the Islamic nation’s terrorist surrogates may be forming sleeper cells here in the United States.

Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) asserted in a radio interview that she believes it’s possible that Hizbullah, the radical terrorist organization tied to Iran, may be working with Mexican cartels to funnel not only drugs, but also terrorist sleeper agents into the U.S.

“Former [Defense Intelligence Agency] people and others have told me what is going on. There have been a couple of arrests in this country relative to people who have had ties to Hizbullah or Iran, and my concern has been with the drug cartels and the gangs that are operating in Mexico,” Myrick said. “There is, what I have been told, a very strong presence there of coordination between the two.”

Myrick made these comments on WABC’s “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio.”

“I’m very concerned about the fact that they’ve been in Central America and South America for so long – we all know that, that’s a recognized fact – and our border is not secure,” Myrick continued. “We do not know who is in this country, and I really believe because of what is happening, because of the growing presence of Iran, their influence in those areas – and it is a growing presence – that there is just an opportunity for them with our weak border that we have to come into our country.”

Myrick explained that she has been asking the Obama administration for years to expand its drug and border investigations to include activities of terrorists funneling through, “but there just hasn’t been any movement whatsoever to get this done.”

Asked why the Obama hasn’t moved the Department of Homeland Security to action,” Myrick replied, “I have no idea.”

“[But] one of these days we’re going to wake up with a very big surprise,” she added.
