This excellent article by Jerry Gordon shows how Saudi musloids are kidnapping American citizens, much the way the Barbary Pirates kidnapped American citizens until we sent the then-new organization, the United States Marines, to teach them otherwise. Musloids are musloids, and they always will be musloids, until the end of Time itself.
An American Child Kidnapped in Accordance with Shariah
An interview with Professor Margaret McClain
One of horrors that have confronted American women who naïvely marry Saudi men is the possible risk of having children of those marriages kidnapped following divorce in accordance with Sharia and removed to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. There are estimated to be in excess of 1,000 such cases. A few have been featured in investigative reports on CBS 60 Minutes and Fox News’ The O’Reilly Factor. Frequently American wives of Saudis and other fundamentalist Muslims are physically abused and maltreated under Sharia.
This figure of 2.8 million comes as a surprise to me. The last figure that I read coming from the right was 1.6 million in J&S and 1.5 in Gaza.

Palestinian boys raise their hands in a school run by the UNRWA.
A newly published study shows that the Arab population in Israel’s region is constantly shrinking, especially in the Gaza Strip, which is in contrast to a constant increase in the Jewish population.
The study, authored by Dr. Yaakov Feitelson and published by the Institute for Zionist Strategies, claims that the widely perceived beliefs about demography in Israel are misconceived.
According to the study, the Arab population of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza includes 2,762,000 Muslims, and roughly 52,000 Christians. This is approximately 1,331,000 people fewer than the number estimated by the Palestinian Authority.
Aliyah Levels Up: 19,200 New Immigrants in 2013
Israel is enjoying one of the lowest emigration rates in the world.
Birth rate in the Muslim Arab sector has reached an all-time low.
The year 2013 saw a record number of births in Israel, data published over the weekend by the Central Bureau of Statistics showed.
The total number of births rose 0.2 percent to 171,207 babies born, compared to 170,904 in 2012. Jewish births increased 1.3% to 127,101 babies compared to 125,409 born in 2012. Some 5,000 babies were born to parents who immigrated to Israel under the Law of Return. (Read more…)

Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert with his former bureau chief Shula Zaken during one of their court appearances [archive]
Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was knee-deep in corruption, his former bureau chief Shula Zaken told associates on Friday, a day after providing police with new information on the former premier’s alleged misconduct.
Zaken’s decision to spill the beans on Olmert’s culpability was apparently motivated by the state’s decision to forgo a plea bargain that would have had her testify as a state witness in exchange for a reduced sentence. (Read more…)

As thousands of conservatives from across the country gather outside Washington, D.C., this week for the annual CPAC conference, they get to see and cheer on their favorite conservative all-stars and presidential hopefuls in person — Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Sarah Palin, Ann Coulter and many more. But something else is going on. Amid the hoopla, book signings, meet and greets, speeches, panels and bands, a tense, no-holds-barred fight is underway to try to rid CPAC of a pair of influential men with track records of working with America’s enemies — Islamic organizations the U.S. government has linked to the Muslim Brotherhood and larger world of jihad.

Have you seen Obama’s poll numbers? They are among the lowest in history. As of today, Obama’s approval rating is at 38%. That’s just barely above Richard Nixon.
Keep in mind Obama has the support of about 35% to 40% of the American population that will NEVER abandon him, no matter what he does, no matter how bad the jobs numbers look, no matter how low the economy goes, no matter how much scandal and corruption is exposed, no matter how strong the facts are against him.
Nothing will ever change their minds. These are the “low information voters” of the Democratic Party.

The international community looked into Putin’s eyes and blinked. Multilateralism has failed as badly as it did in the days of the League of Nations, but then again it never actually worked.
The international order that everyone pretends is a real force in world affairs is really the United States and a few partners doing all the work and letting the diplomats and bureaucrats of the world pretend that they matter. Without America, the United Nations would be just as useless as the League of Nations. With America, the United Nations is only a deterrent when the United States puts its foot down and the rest of the world doesn’t get in the way.
This speech has been hailed by many as one of her best. Its sole purpose was to rally the troops. Nobody can inspire like Palin does. She delivered in spades.

The gradual re-conquest of the old Soviet empire by a former officer of the Soviet Gestapo ought to worry us a lot. If Putin succeeds in making Ukraine a virtual vassal of Moscow, then all the other appendages of that empire – the Baltic States, the Warsaw Pact members, Belorussia, Transcaucasia, and the sprawling Muslim nations that were once part of the Soviet Union – will have begun, willing or not, to gravitate back to Great Russia.
The question is not ideology, as it seemed to be in the Cold War. Hillary actually came close to the truth in her speech on March 5. This is nationalism, augmented by the desire of a strongman, in control of an economically fraught nation, to make his people feel that foreign nations are the problem.
The way I see it, if the citizens of Crimea want to be part of Russia rather than Ukraine, the world has nothing to say in the matter. To be fair though, just as in Canada when Quebec was hollering for cessation, everyone recognized that should it vote to go, financial matters had to be settled. e.g. The seceding population must take with them a proportionate share of the national debt. Issues such as that need to be agreed upon. But America doesn’t see it that way. They see if from a cold war mentality. Russia shouldn’t be allowed to expand. Its their knee jerk reaction. Obama is not comfortable with that and prefers to allow events to take their course. But America worries that first Crimea and then Ukraine and who knows what else. Does America have a horse in this race. If Germany doesn’t care, should America? Ted Belman

Russia’s problematic conduct does not excuse confusing Putin’s nationalism with imperialism, and Ukraine’s nationalism with democracy.
The tenants of the Kremlin and the White House are perfect opposites.
Vladimir Putin is an introverted, mediashy spy of few words, Barack Obama is an outgoing public speaker whose sound bites dominate headlines every week; Obama’s political conscience was shaped by the Berlin Wall’s dismantlers, Putin’s by its builders; Obama cultivates the image of a dedicated family man, the Putins last jointly faced the cameras to announce their divorce; Putin ridicules gay rights, Obama is their crusader; Putin is judo, Obama is basketball; Putin arrives in the arena stern-faced and belligerent, Obama arrives smiling and verbose, only to repeatedly emerge apologetic and floored.
It therefore comes naturally these days for Europeans and Americans to interpret the crisis that flared last month in Kiev and this week escalated in Crimea as a clash between good and evil – the latter, of course, being Putin and his imperial appetite, and the former being Obama and his imperial fatigue.

The US House of Representatives passed a bill on Wednesday that declares Israel a “major strategic partner” of the United States, reinforcing the broad relationship between the two nations and laying the groundwork for more expansive strategic cooperation.
The bill would expand the delivery of forward-deployed US weapons to Israel, as well as other military technologies, and would commit Congress to further funding of the Iron Dome short-range missile defense system.
Controversially, the bill would also invite Israel into a visa waiver agreement with the US, which has been opposed by members of the intelligence community and the Democratic caucus for multiple years.
The bill passed 410-1 in the House. The Senate has taken up a similar measure, which is still in the committee process.

“On the way to Sevastopol, not too far from Simferopol,” begins what is probably the most famous Yiddish song from the Soviet Union, “Hey Dzhankoye.” The song, named after a collective farm near the Crimean town of Dzhankoy, celebrates the alleged victories of the Soviet collectivization drive of the 1920s and 1930s, which, according to the song, magically transformed Jewish merchants into farmers. “Who says that Jews can only trade?” asks the final verse of the song, “Just take a look at Dzhan.”

Iran is scheduled to receive another $550 million in unfrozen assets from the Obama administration on Friday, just days after Tehran unveiled a slew of new weapons and advanced ballistic missiles.
Iranian banking authorities on Wednesday confirmed that another $550 million is now on its way to Tehran under the interim nuclear accord inked last year with the United States and other Western nations.
The United States has agreed to unfreeze a total of $4.2 billion in Iranian oil assets over the next several months. Experts have warned that because the money is being given to Iran with no strings attached it could go to fund terror-related activities or even Iran’s nuclear program.

Ari Shavit’s new book, My Promised Land puts our zionism on test
I am a candidate for president of the Zionist Organization because the ZOA must be strong, effective, and professionally and ethically run in its critical fight for Israel and the Jewish people. The current President, Morton Klein, has been in power for over 20 years.
Unfortunately, in recent years, the ZOA has withered in size, resources, influence and credibility.
It’s time for new leadership.

The Autonomus Republic of Crimea has voted to hold a referendum on whether to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. 58% of the people of Crimea are Russian.
In response, Pres Obama said “The proposed referendum on the future of the Crimea would violate the Ukrainian constitution and international law.” But who’s listening? What a hypocrite. Obama continually violates the US constitution even though he took an oath to uphold it.
A week ago, Belz, a Hareidi sect, threatened to leave Israel and I wrote So Go Already in a cavalier fashion.
I received this email shortly thereafter which puts another face on the issue. It appears I spoke to soon without sufficient thought. Ted Belman
Ted, let me tell you about Belz and the other hassidic and Yeshiva population.
There are over 60,000 American and European Yeshiva students in Israel. Each is spending an average of 30,-50,000 U S dollars per year in Israel. Besides,airfare mostly El Al for their large families travelling back and forth for simchas etc (Read more…)

Two days after a Cairo court banned Hamas’s activities in Egypt, the country’s security establishment intends to revoke the citizenship of thousands of Palestinians obtained during the one-year term of deposed Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi, an Egyptian daily reported on Thursday.
Security sources told Al-Youm A-Sabi’ that their agencies are seeking information on 13,757 Palestinians who received Egyptian citizenship from the Muslim Brotherhood government before its July 2013 ouster in a military-backed revolution. The sources said that most of the Palestinians in question are affiliated with Hamas.
