    Obama Incites Second Falklands War  

    by Bill Levinson

    We said more than 2.5 years ago that Barack Obama’s offer to “mediate” between Argentina and the United Kingdom over British territory could easily encourage a Second Falklands War, and Argentina’s President, Cristina Kirchner, is sounding more and more like Leopoldo Galtieri every day. The only thing in her favor is that she is considerably better looking than Galtieri. As reported by Fox News, here is Obama’s Zimmerman Telegram–or actually worse, because Germany’s offer to help Mexico reconquer the western United States was contingent on the U.S. attacking Germany first.

      In a move one British conservative analyst called “hugely insulting to Britain,” the Organization of American States earlier this week adopted a declaration calling for negotiations between the United Kingdom and Argentina over the “sovereignty” of the Falkland Islands. While the U.S. delegation did not speak in support of the measure, it ultimately joined a consensus adopting it.

    National Jewish Democratic Council Supports Admitted War Criminal for Secretary of State  

    by Bill Levinson

    The National “Jewish” “Democratic” Council has proven yet again that it has no honor or common decency whatsoever, by lending its support to an admitted felon and war criminal for Secretary of State. (“Admitted felon” does not mean “convicted felon.” Barack Obama’s friend William Ayers said he (Ayers) was “guilty as hell, free as a bird,” i.e. he admitted that he had committed one or more felonies, but was never convicted.) John Kerry is on record as admitting that he committed war crimes, and actions punishable as crimes under United States law–quite likely punishable by a dishonorable discharge from the Armed Forces, which is equivalent to a felony conviction.

    “America the Quitter”: Let Israel deal with our mess  

    by David Turner, Times of Israel

    Two days ago, on 11 January, defense secretary Panetta, accompanied by General Dempsey, JCS chairman gave a press conference in the DOD press room. Mostly devoted to Afghanistan and the budget the question ofAmerica’s role in the Syria conflict was raised minutes before the conclusion.

    “Q:  Mr. Secretary, did you just rule out putting in U.S. troops to secure Syrian chemical weapons?“
      SEC. PANETTA:  Well, I mean, look, we — we’re not working on options that involve boots on the ground.  You know, with — you know, I think you — you always have to keep the possibility that, if there is a peaceful transition and international organizations get involved, that they might ask for assistance in that situation.  But in a hostile situation, we’re not planning for that.

    Why Current US Foreign Policy Debate Doesn’t Make Sense ..and How to Fix It  

    By Barry Rubin, PJ MEDIA

    Something very bad is happening with the U.S. foreign policy debate. Aside from all of the specific problems and bad appointments, the whole discussion is being conducted on the wrong assumptions and context.

    There is nothing easier than to argue about obsolete issues simply because we’ve become so used to the reality of those that have been around for decades. The first step is comprehending that we are dealing with entirely new categories.

    The Vatican Slams Israel’s Right to Life  

    What does the Vatican want? Hard to believe that they have gone back to blaming the Jews.

    By Giulio Meotti, Arutz Sheva

    “Mandated by the Vatican, a special delegation of Catholic bishops from Europe and North America pledged to press their governments to act against the “injustice” of “Israel’s West Bank separation barrier”.

    Eight high ranking prelates visited Christians in the Gaza Strip, Bethlehem and Beit Jala. The Vatican envoys called the world to address the “tragic situation” faced by Palestinian Christian Arabs of Beit Jala, not because of Islamist threats, but because Arabs were “displaced” by the Israeli barrier, despite the fact that in constructing the security barrier no land has been annexed by Israel, no houses have been demolished, and no-one has been required to leave their home.

    European governments funding Palestinian annihilation campaign against State of Israel  

    By Eldad Beck, YNET

    BERLIN – Before going on their end-of-the-year vacation, the heads of the Dutch Foreign Ministry were asked to respond to a series of questions from members of parliament’s foreign affairs committee regarding their office’s budget for 2013. The procedure is routine, but this time the members of parliament asked questions regarding the essence of the financial aid the Dutch government has been granting the Palestinian Authority and the refugee organization UNRWA for decades.

    The Foreign Ministry heads managed to dodge the questions about the continued funneling of funds collected from the tax payers to the Palestinians, through various channels, despite the continued terror activity and anti-Semitic and anti-Israel incitement. They also avoided answering questions regarding the perpetuation of the refugee problem by assisting UNRWA.
