Netanyahu Defends Western Civilization
The United States of America, in spite of all its economic difficulties, is still the world’s strongest military power and the greatest force for good in this world. This week, our president walked into the United Nation’s General Assembly and addressed a handful of democracies and a room full of thugs and dictators. Obama offered a mixed message with contradictory lines about the value of free speech and statements like “the future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”
In contrast, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took to the podium and delivered a passionate defense of human dignity, as well as a stern warning against the spread of radical Islam.
With Western Civilization under increasing attack, the Muslim Brotherhood on the march, an American ambassador and three other U.S. citizens killed in Libya, and Iran developing nuclear weapons, it was left to the leader of a small nation of seven million people to deliver the kind of address that one would expect from a confident American president.
Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech was powerful, and I encourage you to watch it in its entirety.
The Media’s Disgusting Bias
If you ever needed proof of the media’s anti-Israeli bias, the Associated Press and Reuters provided it yesterday.
Like many public speakers, Prime Minister Netanyahu frequently uses gestures to emphasize his points. In their coverage of his U.N. address, the Associated Press and Reuters both ran a picture of the Israeli prime minister with his arm stretched out and fingers pointed forward in what looks like a Nazi salute. (See them here.)
Of course, it was no such thing. It was simply a random gesture. But out of all the photos that were taken by professional photographers during his remarks, the Associated Press and Reuters chose the one that is the most insulting to the leader of the Jewish state.
It also fits the left-wing media’s narrative of Israel as the “new fascist oppressor,” when in fact the real fascists are those denying the Holocaust, like Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, denying the truth about 9/11 like Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi, or denying their people freedom of speech and religion like those seeking to imposing Sharia law throughout the world.
Another Day In Obama’s World
Radical Islamists have been demanding punishment for the people responsible for producing the obscure online anti-Islamic movie that supposedly caused so much rioting in recent days. During his address to the United Nations, Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi said that such “obscenities” were “unacceptable” and added, “We will not allow anyone to do this by word or deed.”
Well, guess what? It was reported last night that U.S. officials have arrested Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, an Egyptian Coptic Christian, who is believed to be responsible for the anti-Islamic movie. The charges have nothing to do with the film, but the timing of his arrest certainly seems suspect.
Meanwhile, there was a massive jail break in Saddam Hussein’s home town of Tikrit, Iraq. You may recall that Barack Obama pulled out the last U.S. troops in December, even though there were concerns at the time that Iraqi security forces were not up to the job.
At least 10 guards were killed at the Tikrit prison, 32 people were wounded, and scores of prisoners, including many connected to Al Qaeda, escaped. Officials believe this was an “inside job” because the inmates reportedly took the time to burn the prison records in order to “complicate efforts to track down those who escaped.”
So while jail doors are flying open in Iraq and jihadists are escaping in droves, here in the United States a “serious threat to peace” — a bad filmmaker — sits behind bars.
A Soros-funded Obscenity
A left-wing Super PAC funded by George Soros’ son has produced a video featuring blockbuster actor Samuel L. Jackson bashing Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. But what makes this pro-Obama celebrity endorsement unusual is that the video is a four-minute obscenity-laced rant that concludes with a young girl screaming out of a window, “WAKE THE F–K UP!”
Liberals and their left-wing media allies never miss an opportunity to blame conservatives and the Tea Party for the overheated rhetoric that has lowered our public discourse and divided our nation. It is a lie meant to intimidate and silence conservatives.
This Soros/Jackson video is a disgusting new low in the left’s contributions to the coarsening of our culture, not to mention the delinquency of a minor. It should also serve as a clarion call for men and women of faith to redouble their efforts in this election in order to take back this country and defend our cherished values!
