Tha War On Terror- A Success Story

Charles Krauthammer lists all the successes of the war on terror since September 11th, and advises Liberals to get a life.

The fact that the Democrats and the media can't seem to let go of it, however, is testimony to their need (and ability) to change the subject. From what? From the moral and strategic realities of Iraq. The moral reality finally burst through the yellowcake fog with the death of the Hussein brothers, psychopathic torturers who would be running Iraq if not for the policy enunciated by President Bush in that very same State of the Union address.

That moral reality is a little hard for the left to explain, considering the fact that it parades as the guardian of human rights and all-around general decency, and rallied millions to prevent the policy that liberated Iraq from Uday and Qusay's reign of terror.

1) In Afghanistan, the Taliban have been overthrown and a decent government has been installed.

(2) In Iraq, the Saddam Hussein regime has been overthrown, the dynasty has been destroyed and the possibility for a civilized form of governance exists for the first time in 30 years.

(3) In Iran, with dictatorships toppled to the east (Afghanistan) and the west (Iraq), popular resistance to the dictatorship of the mullahs has intensified.


And there are a bunch of other ones. Fantastic column.
Americans Aren't Buying It Either

Mahmoud Abbas apparently is doing a very bad job of acting as a peacemaker. A majority of Americans still believe the Palestinians aren't serious about peace.

The survey of 800 registered voters on July 21-22, commission by the Israel Project, found that 95% of Americans think the Palestinians need to arrest and disarm terrorists, and 88% believe the leadership must halt all incitement before a state of Palestine is created.

In addition, 83% said Israel should not release any Palestinian prisoners who have killed Israeli citizens, as demanded by terrorist groups, and just 15% said they have faith in the hudna, or temporary ceasefire between those groups, compared to 78% who said the hudna isn't enough to secure peace.


Maybe if our president would listen to the people who elected him.


Is He Cracked?? II

Yossi Beilin, former Minister in the Knesset, writes an opinion column in the NY Times today. I don't know what he was smoking when he wrote this.

Mr. Sharon wants to get to the second part of the road map quickly because creating a Palestinian entity covering about half of the West Bank would solve for him a huge demographic problem — as things stand now, in seven years the Israeli government will rule over a larger number of Palestinians than Jews — while leaving Israel a considerable part of the territories it captured in 1967.

He has far less interest, however, in relinquishing the rest of the territories, as would be required in the third phase. Undoubtedly, he would prefer if the settlement controversy stalled the road map, keeping the embittered Palestinians perpetually in a small, economically emaciated state with no capital or claim on Jerusalem.


I think Ariel Sharon does have far less interest in relinquishing the rest of the territories, but not for the above reason. You see, Ariel Sharon believes in reality. If the Palestinians get all the territories, he knows that they will use it as a launching pad for the "final solution," but Mr. Belin apparently lives in a parallel universe, where the Arabs actually want peace.

Mr. Beilin sounds like a paranoid schitzophrenic when he says "keeping the embittered Palestinians perpetually in a small, economically emaciated state." He acts as if Sharon's goal in life is to make life difficult for the Palestinians, and that is a ridiculous thing to say.
Tom Delay For Likud

I think Tom Delay would do a much better job as Prime Minister than Ariel Sharon.

"I'm sure there are some in the administration who are smarter than me, but I can't imagine in the very near future that a Palestinian state could ever happen," he said in an interview today, as he prepared to leave for a weeklong official tour.

"I can't imagine this president supporting a state of terrorists, a sovereign state of terrorists," he said. "You'd have to change almost an entire generation's culture."

During the last year or two, Mr. DeLay has emerged as a significant figure in Middle East policy, particularly since his ascension to the majority leader's post this session. He has often fought for more aid to Israel than the Bush administration has offered, and has in the past called the peace plan "a road map to destruction."

"So far, I can't be critical, but I do have grave concerns," he said. "I have watched peace process after peace process after peace process, which is what happens when the process drives everything, not the peace. When they talk about a road map, I question whether this is a road map based on the president's speech, or a road map based on some State Department concept of another peace process."





Road Map To Arafat

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian PM, has once again affirmed his allegiance to the father of all terrorists, Yasir Arafat, in a speech to the House International Relations Committee.

Abbas, who is to meet with US President George W. Bush on Friday to discuss the road map for a two-state solution, told members of the House International Relations Committee during a closed session Thursday: "The road map does not say anything about isolating Arafat. Nobody really asked us to do so."

He then added somewhat cryptically, according to one person present: "It's not my government that accepted the road map. It was the previous one of Arafat that accepted it."


Fortunately, Congress isn't buying it.

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Florida), who asked Abbas about his pledges to continue working with Arafat, told The Jerusalem Post she found Abbas's comments "very disturbing."

"I would not say that he greatly impressed too many people in the audience," she said.



The War On Terrorism

Sometimes it seems as if the US isn't serious about the war on terrorism. Caroline Glick from The Jerusalem Post argues that the US better get serious or else, it isn't going to win this war.

Unfortunately, this is far from the case. The question of the nature of the war the US is fighting is critical to determining whether or not the US is adopting strategies capable of winning the war. The intellectual split between Pipes and Djerejian and the policies their views prescribe could not be starker. Pipes and his intellectual allies view the war as a cultural battle which pits Arab fascists and Islamic totalitarians against their own people as well as against Western democracies.

Djerejian and his fellows view the war as a conflict between helpless and pitiable masses led (happily) by exotic and oil-rich Arab leaders and what they perceive as Western imperialism best manifested in Israel.

The Senate's tabling of Pipes's nomination is a small yet vital test of the administration's resolve. Unfortunately it seems that the administration is intent on failing this test.


Exactly. Daniel Pipes' nomination is just one test the administration must pass. The president can't allow the State Department, which is a hotbed of Arabists, to dictate his policy, because if he does, he isn't winning this war.

BBC Bias

In an article on the current "crisis" going on within the Palestinian Authority, regarding the "no confidence" motion against Abbas, the BBC tells a complete lie.

The Palestinians see the prisoner releases as a key part of the plan, but Israel sees it as a goodwill gesture rather than an obligation.


The prisoner release isn't just another disagreement between Israel and the Palestinians. The Road Map does not even mention prisoner release, yet the BBC acts as if Israel is obligated to release the prisoners.

Now I Get It!!

Nissan Ratzlav Katz, opinion editor at Arutz-7, finally understands why Israel isn't accepted in the Middle East by its neighbors.

The Moslem and Arab press and leadership regularly condemn Israel - a fellow Middle Eastern state - for brutality, racism, oppression, etc. of the Arabs in Israel. Arabs, Moslems and their sympathizers the world also over condemn Israel for its tactics in fighting Islamist and pan-Arab terrorism.

How do those states that vociferously condemn Israel behave when facing situations similar to our own? Perhaps, were Israel to emulate the behavior of those regimes, we would finally be accepted as an integral part of the region.

Lesson V - Arrest everybody. If you can’t arrest them, kill them. And cut off basic services to achieve the desired result.

Saudis also apparently have a problem with too many resident Yemenite Arabs, whom the authorities consider both an ethnic and security threat. What can the Saudis teach Israel regarding the solution to such a problem? The Saudis are in favor of transfer. Well, for Yemenites living in Saudi Arabia, anyway. According to a report on ArabicNews.com, Saudi authorities have detained and interrogated thousands of Yemenites and are keeping them in “collective detention centers”. A Yemeni opposition newspaper, al-Ummah, reported that “Saudi authorities evacuated 3,600 Yemenites from its territories....”


Read this one, It's great.
NY Times

The NY Times can't help it, but an anti-road map book made the NY Times best-sellers list.

Beyond Iraq: The Next Move, a book that claims Israel is being used as a pawn to pay the appeasement bill for the US war in Iraq, has reached The New York Times best-sellers list.


Conservatives Aren't Rats

"Researchers" at the University of Berkeley have discovered what makes a Conservative.

Four researchers who culled through 50 years of research literature about the psychology of conservatism report that at the core of political conservatism is the resistance to change and a tolerance for inequality, and that some of the common psychological factors linked to political conservatism include:

Fear and aggression
Dogmatism and intolerance of ambiguity
Uncertainty avoidance
Need for cognitive closure
Terror management


The stupidity of this "study" speaks for itself.
Act III

This Palestinian show is really starting to get old already.

The Palestinian parliament could vote Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas from power unless he wins substantial Israeli concessions in upcoming talks in Washington, a top Palestinian official said Wednesday.

Right. As if they have a real "parliament," and they actually "vote." Another ploy to get the US to pressure Israel, because, if they don't, Abbas' government will fall!! Oh no!!

What a load of crap.


He's Got A Point

Maybe the US shouldn't have killed Uday and Qusay Hussein, according to one Iraqi.

But at least one man voiced disappointment that Uday, who ran much of Iraq's media and sport with a heavy hand, had been killed. "I don't want him dead. I want to torture him first," said Alaa Hamed, who was a producer at Uday's television station. He said Uday beat him with electrical cables when he made mistakes.

Hehe.
Is He Cracked??

Rep. Charlie Rangel of NY today harshly criticized the US raid that left Saddam Hussein's sons dead.

The U.S. acted illegally when its soldiers attacked and killed Uday and Qusay Hussein, a leading Democratic congressman complained on Tuesday, before mocking the military maneuver that succeeded in eliminating the brutal duo.

"We have a law on the books that the United States should not be assassinating anybody," Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., told Fox News Channel's "Hannity & Colmes."

"We tried to assassinate Castro and we paid dearly for it," Rangel contended. "And when you personalize the war and you say you're killing someone's kids, then they, in turn, think they can kill somebody."


(1) The "law" is against assassinating foreign leaders, not anybody.
(2) It wasn't a law, it was an executive order.
(3) Uday and Qusay Hussein weren't foreign leaders.
(4) "Kill somebody's kids?" These aren't harmless 12 year old "kids," they're mass murderers.
(5) "They, in turn, think they can kill somebody?" Cause daddy boy hasn't done that in the last twenty years.

Yea, he's cracked.

Three Cheers for Bill

You know, I hate Bill Clinton with a passion, but today, I have to hand it to him, he said some really smart things.

"You know, everybody makes mistakes when they are president," Clinton said. "I mean, you can't make as many calls as you have to make without messing up once in awhile. The thing we ought to be focused on is what is the right thing to do now. That's what I think."

"People can quarrel with whether we should have more troops in Afghanistan or internationalize Iraq or whatever, but it is incontestable that on the day I left office, there were unaccounted for stocks of biological and chemical weapons."


Now, there is probably some alterior motive for these statements, beause Bill Clinton is simply evil. But, still, I applaud the former president for this statement.

Palestinian Incitement

"We will also act vigorously against incitement to violence and hatred." - Mahmoud Abbas

Yea, Right.

It opens with a girl laughing on a swing, which turns into a flaming inferno, which then engulfs a child's rocking horse as well. The message: Israelis firebomb children at play, leaving behind flaming swings and rocking horses. Children are then shown playing football, until a bomb hidden by Israel inside the ball explodes when a child kicks it. Then a father reads his young son a section from the Koran that calls for fighting enemies, and actually hands him a stone to throw. Actors then depict Israeli soldiers murdering an elderly man by shooting him in the head; this is followed by a mother and her infant being blown up by Israeli soldiers.

All this and much more is depicted on one video, set to music for Palestinian children.

Even when an opinion appears in the media calling for an immediate halt to terrorism, it never rejects terrorism as a legitimate tool. Ahmed Qurei (Abu Ala), a man seen by Israel as a legitimate, even moderate, PA leader, explained his call to stop suicide terrorism as a way of reaping the fruits of what he sees as a successful campaign: "I personally am in favor of stopping these actions [suicide bombings] and in favor of letting the peace process return to its natural course because I believe the present intifada has brought great achievements and we now have to take the benefits" (Al-Hayat al-Jadida, June 1, 2003).

THE FRIDAY sermon, for years a source of horrific incitement to hatred of Jews, continued with the same hate messages this past week: "Allah, take revenge against our enemies Take [destroy] the Jews and their helpers..."

One sermon glorified the shahada (used by the PA to define suicide terrorism) and included a lengthy call specifically to mothers to send their sons to die for Allah: "Alkhansaa [a woman who converted to Islam at the time of Muhammad] gave her four sons, encouraged them to go out to jihad to fight the enemy, and told them: 'Go to battle so that God will honor me by you...' Alkhansaa got news of their death as shahids [martyrs] and said 'Praise to the Lord, who honored me with their being killed.'

Joke Of The Day

I've decided to begin posting a "Joke Of The Day" everyday.

Well, no, I haven't, but sometimes it sure seems like it. PA prepares own dossier on 'incitement'

In an effort to counter Israeli charges of incitement to violence, the Palestinian Authority has published a report detailing what it describes as Israeli incitement against Palestinians.

The report lists the following examples of continued incitement by Israeli officials and newspapers:

Remarks made by Infrastructure Minister Avigdor Lieberman about the release of Palestinian prisoners in which he said, "It is better to drown all Palestinian prisoners in the Dead Sea as it is the lowest point on the globe."

A statement made by Shin Bet chief Avi Dichter in which he threatened the Palestinian Authority by saying that he was giving the Palestinian security forces only three weeks to start disarming all various Palestinian factions.

Remarks made by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon against PA Chairman Yasser Arafat, in which he said, "Arafat undermines [PA Prime Minister Mahmoud] Abbas's government because he continues to control most of the Palestinian security forces and the finances of the PA."

Comments by President Moshe Katsav in which he said, "The peace process will fade out as long as Arafat enjoys a high rank."

A statement made by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz, who was quoted as saying, "Arafat is making every single effort to sabotage Abbas's government and currently he [Arafat] is the major obstacle for the peace process."

Remarks made by IDF Chief of Staff Moshe Ya'alon, who said, "Arafat deserves death or expulsion but we will not in any way make him a martyr."

Comments made by Israel Radio's Arabic service, Reshet Dalet, which began one of its news programs by declaring that Arafat has been working recently to foil the efforts of Abbas and Dahlan to reach a cease-fire.

Comments made by Shimon Shiffer, the diplomatic editor of Yediot Aharonot, in which he said on the eve of Sharon's visit to Great Britain last week: "The key aim of Sharon's visit is to convince his European counterparts, especially the British Prime Minister Tony Blair, that they have to cut off ties with Arafat as he is a major obstacle to peace."


Are you laughing yet?

Stooping to thier level

We all hear the argument that just because they kill civilians, doesn't mean we should "stoop to thier level" and do the same, and all sorts of that garbage.

Daniel Pipes writes that we should "stoop down to thier level."

Had the United States retaliated in kind for 9/11, Harris tells me, the Islamic holy places would have been destroyed. Had Israelis followed the Arafat model of murderousness, the West Bank and Gaza would now be devoid of Palestinians. Had the West done toward Iraq as Iraq did toward Kuwait, the Iraqi polity would long ago have been annexed and its oil resources confiscated.

While morally commendable, Harris argues, the West's not responding to Muslim ruthlessness with like ruthlessness carries a high and rising price. It allows Muslim political extremists of various stripes to fantasize that they earned their power, when in fact that power derives entirely from the West's arch-civilized restraint.


Daniel Pipes is right. We can't continue to be "civilized" when fighting terrorism. We have to fight them the way they fight us. Teach them a lesson. It's the only way.
Right Of Return

Last week, the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research released a poll shwoing that most Palestinian refugees don't really care about the right of return. Zev Chafets, on Jewish World Review, explains why we should take these results with a grain of salt.

Not only that. Shikaki said that only 10% insisted on "returning" to what is now Israel. And, as he told National Public Radio's Robert Siegel, only about 10% of that 10% would return if it meant taking Israeli citizenship.

Siegel: "So you're saying that approximately, according to this poll, about 1% of Palestinian refugees would opt for both residence and citizenship in the State of Israel."

Shikaki: "That is absolutely correct."

But (there's always a "but") Shikaki continued, "This is not an exchange for the right of return. This is in addition to the right of return."

Oh.

In fact, Shikaki said that more than 95% of those polled refuse, as a matter of principle, to give up their "right of return." They are prepared to accept something now -- a house, a farm, a few hundred thousand bucks -- as long as that compensation doesn't preclude them from making additional claims down the road.



Why We Support Israel

William Bennet, on National Review, explains why we support Israel, and what the real cause of terrorism is.

An honest look at Islamist or Arab wrath (or both), requires an honest conclusion: Israel's existence, or our support for it, simply cannot be responsible for the terrorism and violence we have born witness to over the past several decades — or, for that matter, the terrorism we suffered on September 11. What these terrorists and thugs hate above all is liberal democracy, religious freedom, and any alternative claim to God or land that they, themselves, claim. This list includes America, Israel, Christianity, moderate Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Judaism. It is a long list, a list which makes our task all the more difficult but also a task that makes our resolve all the more important.

Thus we come to how we can help broker a peace deal between Israel and her neighbors as well as Israel and the Palestinians. First, we need follow the principle of the Hippocratic oath: Do no harm — we should not put any pressure on Israel (a democracy) that it believes it cannot handle in negotiating with those who show very little respect for democracy. Second, we should require a signed affidavit — in English and Arabic — from Yasser Arafat declaring that foreign policy, peace negotiations, and security are under the sole bailiwick of the prime minister, Mahmoud Abbas. Third, Abbas needs to make guarantees to the settlers in what will become the Palestinian state: At a minimum, they should be given the choice of where they want to vote — in Israel or in Palestine. Arabs in Israel-proper, after all, vote for and serve in the Israeli parliament. Fourth, Abbas needs to cleanse all official maps, and all state-sponsored schoolbooks, of the lie that his state, proposed or otherwise, encompasses Israel in toto.



Palestinian Efforts

Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian PM, has reaffirmed today that the Palestinians will not live up to thier committments.
Abbas in Cairo: No terror group crackdown

Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas said he does not plan to crack down on Palestinian terror groups.

"Cracking down on Hamas, Jihad and the Palestinian organizations is not an option at all," Abbas said after meeting with Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa in Cairo today. "We are applying the law which we accepted under the leadership of the Palestinian Authority, and that is what we will do."


The latest peace plan, known as the Road Map, explicitly calls for "dismantlement of terrorist capabilities and infrastructure."

The international community will obviously ignore this comment and continue pushing the Road Map down Israel's throat, while allowing the Palestinians to get away with half-measures.
Great News

Saddam's sons, Uday and Qusay, have been killed in a firefight in Northern Iraq with U.S. forces.

Saddam Hussein's sons Odai and Qusai were killed in a six-hour firefight Tuesday when U.S. forces, acting on a tip from an Iraqi informant, surrounded and then stormed a palatial villa in this northern Iraqi town, a senior American general said.

This should shut the liberals up about the war's failure for a while, and maybe the terror attacks against American forces will somewhat subside now, I hope.

Democrat's Hypocrisy

Charles Krauthammer writes why we went to war in Iraq, and points out a serious double-standard in Democrats' policy.

In fact, Bush's case was simply a more elaborate and formal restatement of Bill Clinton's argument in 1998 that, left unmolested, Hussein would "go right on and do more to rebuild an arsenal of devastating destruction. And some day, some way, I guarantee you, he'll use the arsenal."

That was true when Clinton said it. It was true when Bush said it. The difference is that Bush did something about it.


I strongly suggest reading this article. It is excellent.

The World Is A Cleaner Place Today

Idi Amin, former Ugandan president, terrorist, and mass-murderer, is dead.

The former Ugandan President Idi Amin Dada is dead.
Radio Simba has learnt that the former President who has been in a coma finally succumbed to hypertension on Sunday. Family sources told Radio Simba that one of his wives Madina Amin was due to fly to Jedda on Monday to attend to him. The family of the Ex-President Idd Amin is still pleading with the government to allow them fly the body of the former Ugandan leader. It isn’t yet clear whether his body will be flown back for a decent burial.

I Love Americans

It's about time.

A new poll found that less than half of Americans believe the New York Times, still considered the so-called "newspaper of record" by many establishment media organizations, is a reliable purveyor of truth.

Yes I know. You knew this long ago, but it's a step forward.
Hint Hint Hint....

President Bush met today with his Italian counterpart, Silvio Berlusconi, at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.

Today Syria and Iran continue to harbor and assist terrorists. This behavior is completely unacceptable and states that support terror will be held accountable."

They better be.
Who Said This??

Can you guess who made this wise comment??

"All of the prime minister's comments on removing outposts are an 'Israbluff', the government clearly has a strategy of using the outposts to put spokes in the roadmap's wheels and end Palestinian hopes of territorial contiguity."

Abu Mazen? Arafat? Sheik Yassin? Bashar Assad?

Nope.

Meretz faction chair woman Zehava Gal-On.




The so-called "Truce."

While the entire world continues to make the Road Map into something it isn't (a peace initiative), Here's what Hamas is doing to prepare for the end of the three month "cease-fire."

Hamas is utilizing the hudna cease-fire to build over 1000 Kassam rockets in an effort to change the balance of power following the three month cessation in hostilities, a senior IDF officer told reporters in Gaza Monday.

Well, you can't blame the Palestinian Authority.

Especially frustrating for the army, he added, is that the IDF feeds the PA intelligence tips from time to time hoping that it will act on them. "That they dealt with [inciting] graffiti and are getting traffic cops back on the streets is nice but the main problem for us is not traffic but weapons smuggling," he said.

Negotiation has so far served as the chief Palestinian modus operandi for preventing attacks, he said. Sometimes "they arrest a militant under the most comfortable conditions possible and release him," within hours. The longest a Palestinian militant has been held, according to the senior source is four days.


Road Map to....what was that?? peace??? I don't think so.


Gee, I wonder

Is he serious??

German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said he
had the impression that Israel feels
ostracized. "I was astounded by the Israelis'
feeling of isolation," he said.


That's a brainstorm in my book.
The World is Cracked

It's official, this world is twisted.

ISRAEL will find itself in front of a Libyan ‘judge’ when it appears in the dock at the United Nations this week over alleged human rights abuses.

The UN’s Human Rights Commission - chaired by a diplomat from the North African country that was behind the Lockerbie bombing - will hear Israeli officials defend their country’s record in what is sure to be a stormy encounter in Geneva.


I'm not sure if this article is a prank or not. It's just scary.

There Is Still Hope

Daniel Pipes seems to strike a cautiously optimistic note on the Road Map.

Yet, I worry. Won't human nature and governmental inertia combine to induce the Bush administration to push the roadmap through to completion, riding roughshod over the pesky details to keep things moving forward? Suppose that Palestinian violence continues; won't there be a temptation to overlook it in favor of keeping to the diplomatic timetable?

That has been the historic pattern whenever democratic states negotiate with totalitarian enemies to close down their conflicts, starting with the British-French attempts to appease Nazi Germany in the 1930s, then the American-Soviet détente in the 1970s, the Israeli-Palestinian peace process in the 1990s, and South Korea's sunshine policy with North Korea since 1998. In each case, the delusion that sweetening the pot would bring about the desired results persisted until it was dashed by a major outbreak of violence (the German invasion of Poland, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the Oslo war).

In theory, American policymakers can break this pattern. Should Palestinian violence against Israel continue, they would announce something along the lines of: "Well, we did our best, but the Palestinians failed us. The roadmap is a good idea in principle must be postponed until they are ready for it. We are giving up on it for now."


Somehow, I doubt this peace initiative will follow a different path than the ones discussed above.

Seven days terror-free?

Remember when Ariel Sharon was elected in 2001, and he said he demanded seven days of no terrorism before negotiations were conducted??

The Palestinians may be crazy, but theyre not stupid. And, they will wait as long as it takes. They got what they wanted, albeit it took 3 years, but they got it. Negotiations while Israelis are murdered day in day out.

I want to cry.
Who's lying??

Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar Bin Sultan said today that recent remarks by Israeli Ambassador Dore Gold, in his testimony to Congress, that Saudi Arabia funds Hamas, are "lies and unsubstantiated accusations."

I love how they use those big words to sound educated.

"It should be known that Dore Gold is not an expert on Saudi society, faith or culture. He is simply hatred's scribe. He has opposed virtually every major peace initiative over the past two decades. Dore Gold has carried on a campaign of lies, and unsubstantiated accusations. His goal is to malign the Saudi government and drive a wedge between the United States and Saudi Arabia. Ironically, this is the very same objective shared by Osama bin Laden," bin Sultan said.

"Not an expert on Saudi society??"

Dore Gold, who received his PhD in Saudi Arabia studies from Columbia University, told the Jerusalem Post Sunday that evidence linking Saudi Arabia to the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror organizations was found in Palestinian headquarters in the West Bank last year.

"I suggest that Prince Bandar read Saudi documents in Arabic left around Palestinian headquarters which show a direct connection between Saudi Arabia and the terrorist campaign of Hamas and Islamic jihad against the people of Israel," Gold said.


"He has opposed virtually every major peace initiative over the past two decades??"

As to the accusation that Gold opposes virtually every major peace initiative, the former ambassador said, "I attended the Aqaba peace summit at the invitation of Prime Minister Sharon, but I don't remember seeing Prince Bandar there."

Congrats to Dore Gold for his handling of the situation.
U.N. Watch

The Palestinian Authority [PA] has named a summer camp for girls after the
first woman suicide bomber - Wafa Idris. Idris murdered 1 and injured over
150 in Jerusalem, when she blew herself up on January 27, 2002. This is a
continuation of PA policy of naming educational programs, schools, and
summer camps after terrorists, including, suicide bombers.

The camp received UN funding through UNICEF.


We pay for the UN to be in New York!! This is beyond insanity.
