    State Dept. Recruits Muslim Foreign Service Officers at Jihadist Conf.  

    Corruption Chronicles, the Judicial Watch Blog

    The Obama administration is covertly recruiting Muslims to work at the State Department as Foreign Service officers representing the United States in one of 265 American embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions worldwide.

    It appears to be part of the administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes a variety of controversial moves. Among them Homeland Security meetings with extremist Islamic organizations, sending an America-bashing mosque leader (Feisal Abdul Rauf) who blames U.S. foreign policy for the 9/11 attacks on a Middle Eastern outreach mission and revamping the way federal agents are trained to combat terrorism by eliminating all materials that shed a negative light on Muslims.  Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even signed a special order to allow the reentry of two radical Islamic academics whose terrorist ties long banned them from the U.S.

    UNHRC report on settlements is totally erroneous  

    Briefing on the Problematic UN Human Rights Council Report on Israeli Settlements

    Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

    Earlier today, this blog noted that Israel has been boycotting the United Nations Human Rights Council due to the Council’s habitual singling-out of Israel for unfair, unwarranted, and utterly biased criticism.

    A report on settlements in the West Bank, the commission of which spurred Israel’s decision to cease cooperation with the Council, has just been released. Sadly, the Report entirely vindicates Israel’s position on the matter. Its three authors began by determining Israel’s guilt, then conducted an investigation into why it was, in fact, guilty. The research was lazy at best – with numerous unreferenced assertions and many very basic factual errors.

    The Transparency Law reveals massive funding to political advocacy NGOs  


    Jerusalem – Today, Jerusalem-based research institute NGO Monitor released a report analyzing submissions made by NGOs to the Israeli registrar of non-profits in Israel in 2012, as legislated under the NGO Transparency law. The law mandates that NGOs file quarterly reports about support received from foreign government bodies. NGOs receive funding from two primary channels, either via direct funding from foreign governments, or indirectly via third parties such as foundations, and humanitarian, development, and religious NGOs.

    The reports for 2012 show that a total amount of 34,355,579 NIS annually is being provided to 30 NGOs from a number of foreign governments. NGO Monitor highlights in our analysis the use of foreign government money to fund political advocacy NGOs based in Israel. As of January 27, 2013, 13 political advocacy NGOs reported grants from foreign governments totaling 21,671,115 NIS, these groups include B’Tselem, Physicians for Human Rights Israel, Gisha, and Yesh Din. A number of other political advocacy NGOs that regularly receive funding from foreign governments did not submit quarterly reports in 2012 for reasons unknown.

    Why is Netanyahu nor supportive of the settlement enterprise  

    Caroline Glick recently wrote About the Next Israeli Government.

    This is the most important take away:

      At the same time, Netanyahu’s assault on his own political camp, starting with Likud and moving to Naftali Bennett and the Bayit Yehudi indicate that at a minimum, Netanyahu will do nothing to advance Israel’s position vis-à-vis the Palestinians. He is unlikely to permit significant new construction in Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria or significant Jewish building in Jerusalem. He is unlikely to undertake any democratic reforms in the Justice Ministry or the court system. He is unlikely to take any steps to boost Israel’s rights in Judea and Samaria or to undermine the terrorist-led Palestinian Authority.

    I totally agree. Now if she would only explain Bibi’s thinking.

    This is exactly what he did during the last four years.

    Obama green light for Israel to strike Iranian-Syrian-Hizballah military links

    Obama approves Israeli action after Iran ducks out of nuclear diplomacy
    The air raid over the Jamraya military complex near Damascus Wednesday, Jan. 30, attributed to Israel by Western sources was Israeli’s first assault on the Syrian-Hizballah military compact forged between Bashar Assad and Hassan Nasrallah.

    That was the real strategic import of the operation, which took place with the approval of US President Barack Obama, DEBKAfile’s military sources report.
