Â Just for the record:
Slick Willie made over $ 200 million + dollars since he left office, mostly from ‘advising’ the Arabs. Needless to mention that they have him by the short and curlies and that he sings their tune. This is the guy who bombed the Christian Serbs to establish Islam in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Radio shock jock Michael Savage got his number:Â Â “Bill Clinton flooded America with hateful Muslims….”Â and if that’s not enough for you, there’s always more…
Â His power trip is like a drug:
Because he won’t surrender to the jihad against Israel. Clinton here is just being self-serving as usual, touting the agreement he helped forge as the one that would have brought real peace, but in this case his self-serving fatuousness plays right into the hands of the Palestinian jihadists. “Bill Clinton: Netanyahu killed the peace process,” by Josh Rogin inÂ Foreign Policy, September 22 (thanks toJW)
The Answer Comes Instantly:
“President Clinton knows very well [that] in 2000 at Camp David … who really made the generous offer and the Palestinians refused to come,” he said. “I’m sure that President Bush can tell you what happened at Camp David a few years later, when another Israeli prime minister made a generous offer, and the Palestinians refused to come.” (source)
- The Pal’s are disappointed:Â “
PresidentOur Boy Obama has broken all the promises he made in the past,”
- Why are so many South American countries recognizing a Palestinian state?
- Jordan not home to Pal’s in camps, they must remain jihadists, says Jordan
- Muslim Congressman Keith Ellisson:Â Obama is “wrong” to oppose the vote for Palestinian statehood at the United Nations.
“Do you hear the UN condemn Arab racism against blacks?What you find on the pages of the New York Times, or in the record of the UN condemnations is “Israeli crimes” and Palestinian suffering. My people have been driven off the front pages because of the exaggerations about Palestinian suffering. What Israel does is portrayed as a Western sin. But the truth is that the real sin happens when the West abandons us: the victims of Arab/IslamicÂ apartheid.”
Mrs Kliman’s skewed standards
Skewed standards? That would preempt Â this weird female has any. Standards. At. All.
Earlier this month in theÂ West Bank, “settlers attempted to burn two mosques, and vandalized an IDF base as part of the latest ‘price tag’ attacks. The attacks came in response to the demolition of three buildings earlier this week in the West Bank settlement outpost Migron, 14 kilometers north of Jerusalem.”
Accordingly, on September 9, the U.S. State Department unequivocallyÂ denouncedÂ these attacks, calling on those responsible to “be arrested and subject to the full force of the law.” Likewise, when another mosque and copies of the Koran were burned earlier, the State DepartmentÂ saidÂ “We condemn this attack in the strongest terms and call for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.”
This prompts the following question: If the State Dept. is concerned over places of worship, why do the epidemic attacks on churches in the Muslim world go largely unnoticed?
To be sure, the State Dept. has condemned the bloodiest and most savage of church attacks, including theÂ Baghdad, IraqÂ attack, which saw at least 58 Christian butchered, and the New Year church bombing inÂ Alexandria, Egypt, which left 23 Christians dead.
Yet one searches in vain for formal condemnations, let alone acknowledgment, of the majority of church attacks, most of which, if not as deadly as Alexandria or Baghdad, are much more brutal than the West Bank mosque attacks.
For instance, where is the condemnation for the attack inÂ Sool, Egypt, when a Muslim mob torched a church, even as an imam called for Muslims to “Kill all the Christians?” As for theÂ Imbaba attacksÂ in Egypt, when Muslim throngs torched three churches and killed several Copts, the U.S. embassy issued aÂ statementÂ condemning “sectarian violence” while not once mentioning that any churches were attacked.
DuringÂ last monthÂ alone, two churches were set aflame in Indonesia, two churches were bombed in Iraq, three churches were bombed in Nigeria. Of all these, only one of the Iraq church attacksâ€”which left 23 worshippers seriously injuredâ€”received acondemnationÂ by the State Dept.
Of course, the issue here is not that the State Dept. needs to condemn all church attacks (who can keep up with their frequency?); nor do these statements amount to much more than mere words, anyway. Even so, as words, they offer some revelations.
First the obvious: It seems that the State Dept. mentions attacks on churches only, but not always, when people are killed, whereas the condemnation of the West Bank mosques have only to do with attacks on buildings. In other words, attacks on churches around the Muslim world that do not necessarily lead to the loss of life, are ignored, whereas attacks on West Bank mosques that do not target or kill Muslims are strongly condemned.
The language of the condemnations is also telling: the Alexandria attack killing 23 Copts doesn’t even call on bringing the perpetrators to justice; Kirkuk is treated with “confidence”: “We are confident the Government of Iraq will take all necessary steps to bring the people responsible for this horrific act to justice.”
Contrast this with the language used when Jewish settlers vandalize mosques, but kill no one in the process: then the U.S. unequivocally calls for them to “be subject to the full force of the law.”
Yet even now, it might be argued that one is stretching the issue, focusing too much on words and statements. Perhapsâ€”until one realizes that many of the most oppressive Muslim nations just got a free pass from the State Dept.
Days ago, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton released the Annual Report on International Religious Freedom. Amazingly, countries likeÂ Pakistan, notorious for making non-Muslim life a living hell, including through “blasphemy laws,” were not even cited as “countries of particular concern.”
In other words, the vast majority of Muslim nations persecuting their religious minorities do not, according to the Obama administration, qualify as countries that are “engaged in or tolerated particularly severe violations of religious freedom,” the definition of a “country of particular concern.” EvenÂ Egyptâ€”which this year alone has already seen over fifty Copts killed, not to mention the many churches burned or bombedâ€”was not listed.
One would have hoped for a bit more objectivity and moral balance from the government of the United States, but such is the current state of affairs.
