The Police Commissioner And ‘The Third Jihad’

If there were any doubt about what the Times is about, consider what Mr. Powell wrote this week in a column about a sparsely attended demonstration by “a few dozen Muslim New Yorkers” who had gathered to protest the NYPD’s use of the film. Noting that no politicians or elected were present, he opined, without any corroboration, that “[s]uch isolation no doubt counts as a success for the deep-pocketed backers of the video, ‘The Third Jihad,’ who apparently hope to tar Muslim leaders as ‘radical Islamists’ and so render them politically toxic.”

It will be recalled that several months ago Congressman Peter King was savaged by the Times as well as some of the same Islamic organizations over his hearings designed to pursue the question of the role of mosques in the recruitment of home grown fundamentalist terrorists. Just a few weeks ago there was a similar targeting of the NYPD for its connection to a CIA anti-terror monitoring effort.

As we see it, the jihad film controversy is just the latest episode in a calculated attempt to delegitimize efforts to deal with a serious threat the larger Muslim community recognizes but is unwilling to address. We acknowledge that an unwelcome broad focus and somewhat unconventional methods are uncomfortable, but something has to be done and such efforts cannot simply be summarily dismissed.

We wonder why the Times – which seems to have no problem casting vague aspersions on possible Jewish and pro-Israel connections with parochial agendas as driving anti-terrorist efforts – ignores the recurrent involvement of several Muslim organizations out front in opposition to those efforts.

Remarkably hypocritical for liberal groups to fight foreign governments from publicizing emails that Dems actually wrote, while supporting their efforts to ACTIVELY operate inside Israel anonymously.

The Holocaust Memorial Center

Too many Holocaust memorials have lost their original identity and transitioned to an institution which devotes itself to both Holocaust and genocide, or simply to global genocide

B'Tselem exective director Hagai El-Ad

There is nothing B’Tselem would like more than a binding Security Council resolution that imposes unfavorable terms on Israel, satisfying B’Tselem’s political vision.

B’tselem is not a human rights organization but a politically partisan group for which “human rights” are a pretext for advancing its radical political agenda—Israeli withdrawal

To even contemplate a factual demonstration proving otherwise would bespeak a profound level of Jewish national insecurity. But the issue must be addressed.

What is missing from this and most other analyses of the failure to negotiate a settlement is a full appreciation of Palestinian recalcitrance as the primary cause of that failure.

So we dance, and do hakafot with the Torah in appreciation and gratitude for the divine gift to the Jewish people.

Trump has flaws, no doubt, but the vicious campaign against him is so disgusting that I can’t stand it, and the mainstream Jewish community is as stupid as ever.

By rejecting Jewish ties to the Temple Mount, UNESCO, as a world body, opened the first shot in the world’s war against Jerusalem, as prophesized ago millennia ago

Trump may be losing America’s support, but some of his more ardent followers are already blaming the Jews.

When it comes to Israel, we know the majority of American Jews are not one-issue voters. But the assumption is that Israelis view American elections solely through the prism of their own security

“The PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for ‘liberation’ organizations.” — Ion Mihai Pacepa, former chief of the Foreign Intelligence Service of Romania.

In 2015, Israelis suffered about 10 terrorist attacks every day. Adjusted for population size, the violence would equate to a staggering 150,160 attacks in a year in the US (roughly 411 per day)

“Interesting” in my book means profound, provocative and positive. Here’s my top 20 list of this year’s “Interesting Jews”

Yet we have the president of the United States traveling to Mt. Herzl in Jerusalem to deliver a eulogy upon the death of a former president of Israel on behalf of the United States. Is that not a powerful statement in itself of recognition of Jerusalem as being part of Israel?

We certainly respect his and his family’s wishes for privacy at this difficult time.

Mr. Obama had already roiled the waters of any possible resolution by declaring it the U.S. position that a settlement must involve borders based on the 1967 armistice lines with minor land adjustments.

Obviously, we need to do everything we can to support our first responders, also pray for the victims.

(In retrospect, how could it have been otherwise? After all, it was immediately known that explosives were placed in a pressure cooker with shrapnel and that there had been an earlier bombing in New Jersey.)

Let us not forget that Mrs. Clinton responded 39 times to the FBI that she could not answer their questions due to her concussion.
