… The Iran Nuclear ” Agreement ” is … [#worse]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,December 17th,2016

.. worse than appeasement ..

.. it is effective surrender and pandering to the mullahs in Qum ..

.. do the ObamaCraps really want a nuclear arms race in the Middle East ? Well , that is exactly what is going to happen ..

.. and there may even be a major war in the Middle East because of it …

.. do you all really think that the Israelis are just going to stand by and take this ? … I don’t think so …

… Egypt simply wants to Organize an All – Arab Coalition [#war fight]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 9th,2016

.. why ? ..

.. because His Lordship [Obama] will not take the lead .

.. hell , he does not even know the meaning of the word ” leadership . ” …

.. [h/t — theConservativeTreeHouse.com]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. since the U.S. [under POTUS] will not take the lead [while Obama is in office] , the Arabs are going to have to organize and work to carry out things to protect themselves by themselves …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,November 28th,2016

.. to be upfront and honest with us …

.. what does he think that our Special Forces are ? Chopped Liver ?? … They are there , they are on the ground , and they are in combat ….

.. POTUS just does not want to admit it …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,November 26th,2016

.. well , they did it again .

.. Mossad [I am pretty sure that it is them] nailed Hizbullah with one of the oldest intel ops in the book. Yea , the honey pot . The Mossad was thinking long – term . Not only were they targeting Hizbullah , but the op targets Iran ..

.. squeezing the smuggling and money laundering of both Hizbullah and Iran will do untoward damage . The damage toll is just beginning …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,November 24th,2016

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 8th,2016

.. Israel wants peace . Israel has always desired peace …

.. however , Israel is a sovereign nation . It cannot be compelled to commit to ” peace … ”

.. when the other proposed party wants to destroy your country , and murder each and every one of your citizens , trying to agree to any sort of ” peace ” is insane ….

.. someday , maybe , the Palestinians may well come to their senses . Hopefully , it will not take another war to do it . If it does , it could go NBC , and a great many people on all sides will die as a result …

… Egypt and the ObamaCraps [#survival]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 31st,2016

.. the ObamaCraps can cause trouble , but only so much . Their own situation is much the same , financially , to Israel ‘ s …

.. Egypt receives multiple types of aid from the U.S. . Also , most of Congress [both parties , to be honest] are in Egypt corner . however , the Obamacraps are not . Which leaves them vulnerable to being subtly blackmailed by the ObamaCraps …

.. [h/t — Debka.com]..
.. [link] to the intelligence report ..

.. right now , it is a matter of survival . Russia is only of limited help . Russia has only a small navy . Their Air force and army are also of limited effect . They are more of a symbolic value to any country that wants them . The Gulf States would be of far larger assistance …

.. The Gulf States [Saudi Arabia and Kuwait , in particular] can replace U.S. aid , if needed . They may not want to , though . They recognize that Egypt is doing their dirty work , and is stabilizing their western frontier . It is in their interest to help Cairo …

… An Interesting Take [#on Israel]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,January 15th,2016

.. Professor William Jacobson is a well – known academic at Cornell University Law School School [in Ithaca , NY] . I am a longtime participant and fan of his blog, Legal Insurrection . From that , I became a Facebook friend of his …

.. no , I do not know his politics . He is a philosophical conservative , that is for sure . However , he could even be conservative Democrat . To be honest , I do not mind . He is an honest philosophical broker , which to me means a great deal …

.. Professor Jacobson and his wife recently took a 2 – week long trip to Israel . They travel extensively throughout the country , talking to many people of many political and philosophical stripes , especially on the center and the center – left . His take is very intriguing ..

.. [h/t — IJReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. they are not enamoured with Bibi . They sure as hell did not vote for him . However , these folks do respect him . He has balls of steel . Conssidering the treatment that Israel gets on the international stge , these folks feel that Bibi is the only major Israeli leader that can stand up to these people . …

.. their opinion of His Lordship [Obama] is far worse . They like him political , which is obvious . However , they do not respect him , not one bit . They do not feel that POTUS cares not one whit for Israel , and may actually hate Israel , and with a deep passion . One in which the future security and existence of the Jewish state is in question …

… POTUS is responsible for the failure of the two – state solution [#Israel – Palestine]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 23rd,2015

.. in addition to the obvious [His Lordship ‘ s behaviour towards Israel] , there are other reasons : …

.. but why …

.. Obama ‘ s behaviour encourages the Palestinians — it is hard enough to get the Palestinians to co – operate on anything . When the original Oslo process got going , the Palestinians saw the writing on the wall in the aftermath of the Gulf War : America was here to stay , and the USSR was finished . It made them want to co – operate . Not now …

.. POTUS ‘ jackhole attitude towards Israel has made the P.A. intractable . Not that the Arab nations are of any help …

.. the Arab Nations [1] — with his jackhole behaviour , the Arab nations are not willing to sit on the P.A. and make them play ball …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the blog column ..

.. and [2] — His Lordship ‘ s behaviour towards Egypt — the Arab nations realize that Egypt needed to step in and take out the Muslim Brotherhood , whether Washington , D.C. likes it or not . The U.S. does not have to live with the aftereffects of the coup , but they do . So they stand by the Egyptians …

… Why am I not Surprised [#Bibi Bashing]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,September 22nd,2014

.. it seems that Wilhelm der Fibmeister is a little out of practice …

.. he forgot a primary rule of politics …

.. whenever you are anywhere near a microphone , treat it as ” Uncle Hot Mike … ”

.. it seems Mr. Bill forgot that …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the C-Span segment …

.. Mr. Bill has not forgotten his animosity towards Bibi Netanyahu , though . His comments hauled off on Bibi , and let the Israeli PM have it over the lack of ” progress ” in the so – called ” peace process … ” …

.. believe you me Bibi has not forgotten … Mr. Bill dispatched several of his electoral flunkies [including Paul Begala] to Israel in 1999 to help Labor Party leader Ehud Barak win the PM election against Netanyahu ….

.. the problem is (for Mr. Bill , et al…) is that the Israeli political landscape has changed , markedly …. Labor has effectively collapsed as a political party . It could resurrect itself , but that is highly unlikely . Kadima has been severely weakened …

.. the newer political forces in Israeli politics are all on the right . the Israeli left is in total disarry …

.. RightScoop is Right ..

.. this guy appears to be not your standard member of the Congressional Black Caucus . My guess is that a significant part of his district , as well as the surrounding district(s) , are Jewish . Not just that , but also Central European as well as Eastern European . So , this guy is respecting a significant minority of his constituents …

… Nice Call , Trent Franks ! [#house floor speech]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 28th,2014

.. Congressman Trent Franks [R-Az] was on the House floor the other evening addressing the actions of the ObamaCrap Administration over their actions on the issue of the Hamas ‘ rocket attacks on Israel , and the provocation of Israel ‘ s response …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the speech text segment …

.. Franks continued …

In his scathing take-down of the administration’s handling of the Middle East, he described Obama’s support of Palestine as a “flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children.”

“  Mr. Speaker, last month Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas openly united with the evil terrorist group Hamas, and at this very moment they are raining down rockets upon the innocent citizens of Israel. Half of all Israelis have sought cover in bomb shelters across their tiny country. And the Obama administration has had the reprehensible gall to praise Abbas as someone who is “committed to nonviolence and cooperation with Israel”, and to further proclaim in an Israeli newspaper that, quote, “finally peace is possible.” Mr. Speaker, I thought nothing this president could ever say or do would surprise me any more, but this flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children is an unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal. America’s fleet should this minute be off the coast of Israel, and the world, including Abbas, Hamas, and Hezbollah, should know that America’s arsenal of freedom stands ready to defend our most precious ally on earth.

… Is our own White House Crazy ?!?! [#israel strikes back]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,July 21st,2014

.. they are actually warning Israel against a ground incursion ? ..

.. with this crowd , they would do such a thing …

.. [h/t — English.alarabiya.net]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. to get at the arms stocks of Hamas , short of its unconditional surrender , Israel is likely going to have to go in on the ground and go and get them . There is not much choice about it …

.. Hamas is not willingly going to give up one of its strongest military drawing cards , especially without the A-o.k. from the Mullahs in Qum [Iran] . I doubt that they would do that , unless they knew for sure that the Israelis were coming to get the weapons stocks …

.. with el – Sisi in power in Cairo , Egypt has a great deal more motivation to stop the arms smuggling into Gaza . So , they are much more willing to co – operate . But , when are where ? The players in the Middle East have changed , and Iran has its hands full in Iraq and Syria . Hamas will have to wait ….

… Why Bother with a Cease – Fire ?? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,July 19th,2014

.. when the other party will not uphold it ..

.. Israel will , but Hamas will not . Israel will jump through hoops to uphold any cease – fire . Hamas does not , not at all …

.. so , why pressure Israel ??

.. [h/t — FoxNews]..
.. [link] to the interview footage ..

.. John Bolton is right . Israel should be able to seek Hamas ‘ unconditional surrender , and force them to stop . Only an unconditional surrender , and one that they can enforce stringently , will stop the violence …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt]..
.. [link] to the blog post …

.. Hamas has been lobbing rockets from the Gaza Strip on – and – off for months . They are notorious for using civilian areas as launching pads for rockets , and now , missiles …

.. yes , missiles ..

.. rockets only travelel so far 8 to 10 miles at the miles at the most …

.. what Hamas is launching now is simple rudimentary missiles . . They are not much more than rockets , but they do have a guidance system . Meaning , that they have some idea of where those things are going . The scary thing is , with practice , Hamas ‘ missile shots will get more accurate with time …

.. then , they will be able to target specific places . Places such as military bases , vacation resorts , government ministries , synagogues , and other targets ….. ones such as the Knesset …

… ScarJo drops the Hammer (yes , again) …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,April 20th,2014

.. actress Scarlett Johannson (or , ScarJo , if you would mind) has not shrank from controversy …

.. she has now teed off in general at those who teed off at SodaStream . She was a global ambassador for Oxfam , until she decided to stand down because of the ruckus over her SuperBowl commercial . Now she has come out further over the controversy …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

Scarlett—she hates it when you call her “ScarJo”—dumped Oxfam faster than she kicked Ryan Reynolds to the curb. She called Oxfam’s crusade as it was:

“There’s a lot of anti-Semitism out there,” Johansson told Vanity Fair, in an interview for the cover of their May edition.

Adam Kredo reported back in January that Oxfam, in fact, has donated millions to those bastards responsible for New Coke, so it was to now surprise that the group had a history of bad judgement. Good to see Scarlett show them who’s boss.

.. to insist on being recognized as a Jewish state .

.. it is not just an issue of being a Jewish state . Making the Arab World in general , and the Palestinians in particular , recognize Israel…. now …. cuts off the argument that the Palestinians have any cause for a Right of Return ….

.. there will be a Jewish state (Israel) and a Palestinian state (Palestine) as indicated in the U.N. Resolution that helped create Israel in 1947 . It will also in effect keep Jews from living in Palestinian territory and non – Israeli Palestinian Arabs from living in Israel .

… A Salute to Scarlett Johannsen …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,March 8th,2014

.. and it came from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu .

.. Bibi was in D.C. for meetings with , among others , POTUS . He was also there to attend the annual meeting of A.I.P.A.C. [the America Israel Public Affairs Committee] . in his speech , he called out actress Scarlett Johannsen for her unswavering support of Sodastream …

.. for those who do not know , Sodastream is that neat company that produces those gadgets that make homemade soda pop . Sodastream is an Israel – based company . it also has operations in Judea and Sumeria (the West Bank) …

.. from the remarks ..

.. [h/t — Newsbusters]..

.. [link] to the blog post..

Today the singling out of the Jewish people has turned into the singling out of the Jewish state. So you see, attempts to boycott, divest and sanction Israel, the most threatened democracy on Earth, are simply the latest chapter in the long and dark history of anti- Semitism. (Applause.) Those who wear — those who wear the BDS label should be treated exactly as we treat any anti-Semite or bigot. They should be exposed and condemned. The boycotters should be boycotted.

Everyone should know what the letters B-D-S really stand for: bigotry, dishonesty and shame. And those who — those who oppose BDS, like Scarlett Johansson, they should be applauded.
Scarlett, I have one thing to say to you: Frankly, my dear, I DO give a damn! And I know all of you give a damn, as do decent people everywhere who reject hypocrisy and lies and cherish integrity and truth.
