Libya: Why Are We There?

I haven't discussed the military operation (war) in Libya up until now because I was waiting to see whether we would go into Libya or not, then we went into Libya alongside NATO and I wanted to give our President a chance to give an explanation as to why we are in Libya as well as see how the operation was being handled.  

First, I don't think the situation in Libya qualifies as a legitimate humanitarian mission involving our military.  If Iraq didn't qualify according to Obama, liberals, and the UN then how the heck could Libya possibly qualify as a legitimate humanitarian mission?  To me it seems like the United States has little or no political interest in Libya.  We only get 5 percent of our oil from Libya whereas Europe is much more dependent on Libya for oil.  If France and the U.K. wanted to go into Libya to protect their oil supply and other national interests then that is their business but the U.S. should have let them go on this military operation without us.


President Obama was the absent, silent Commander-in-Chief for the first couple weeks of the uprising against Muammar Gaddafi. Then, Obama announced that he wanted regime change. Heck, I'd like another regime change LOL! In addition, President Obama and his foreign policy team were hardly ever, if ever, on the same page with regards on how they to handle Gaddafi.  And now Obama only wants to aid the rebels, even though we don't know who they are, without forcing Gaddafi to step down.  There is information to suggest that there are pockets of Al-Qaeda amongst the rebels.  Why the heck are we aiding terrorists who want to kill us?  So now the U.S. is a part of a no-fly zone, just like Iraq was under a no-fly zone for 12 years.  Does NATO and the U.S. plan to have Gaddafi under a no-fly zone for anywhere near the length of time that Iraq was under a no-fly zone?  I hope not.

Obama said our interests and values are at stake. How? American values are at stake because Libyans are engaging in a civil war?  That is nonsensical. He says we have a responsibility to act. If we didn't have a responsibility to act in Iraq then surely we don't don't have even 1/10th the responsibility to act in Libya.  Saddam Hussein came into power in 1979.  Under Saddam Hussein there was government-approved mass murder, torture, forced disappearances, and rapes being committed.  There were also chemical weapons. In 1988 Saddam led a brutal campaign which ended up slaughtering 50,000 to 100,000 Shiite Kurds. In 1991 Saddam committed widespread massacres which is estimated to have killed between 80,000 and 230,000 Iraqis.  Those are only a few of the horrors committed by Saddam Hussein.  Plus, Saddam violated 18 UN sanctions.  The UN had found that he had blocked the arms inspectors from being able to do their jobs but he denied it.  Saddam claimed that Iraq didn't have any banned chemical, biological and nuclear weapons programmes. You can view a list of human rights violations here.  It was already known at the time that Saddam had previously used a wide array of chemical weapons against the Kurds including Sarin, mustard gas, and nerve agents that killed thousands but yet he denied possessing chemical weapons.  Since he had already used chemical weapons on his own people, had obstructed the weapons inspectors from being able to find out whether he did in fact have chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons or not there was no way we could trust a dictator's word.   Since Saddam's denials of possessing weapons had been proven to be false many times before his denials of having WMD's in his possession lacked plausibility.  If you look at all the brutality that Saddam ordered and did how the heck could liberals with a straight face possibly claim that the military action in Iraq was not justifiable, especially when most liberals voted to authorize the use of force?

And, what did Obama say about removing dictators in 2005?  Shall we say hypocrisy?



Many liberals believe this military action in Libya to be the right thing to do because we went into Libya with the United Nations.  For anyone to give credence to the U.N. is absurd, especially after the oil for food scandal.  Obama said "Then we took a series of swift steps in a matter of days to answer Gadhafi's aggression."  For about three weeks Obama was dilly-dallying as the rebels were winning and kicking butt against Gaddafi, taking control of cities but there was nothing but was inaction and mixed messages on the part of this administration.  Now, I am not for this military action but I am just pointing out that I would hardly call this swift action.

In 1977 Gaddafi tried to buy a bomb, then a nuclear weapon, and weapons of mass destruction.  In 2005 weapons inspectors found chemical weapons in Libya. Several people were indicted for assisting Gaddafi but why wasn't Gaddafi indicted also? He is suspected of being behind the Lockerbie bombing but was never brought up on charges.  Why is that? Gaddafi had numerous clashes with other countries and there may have been a time when he killed some of his military when he first began his rule, and now he has killed some civilians but why are we using military force in Libya?  I have no doubt that he's a bad, bad dude but I don't see how it is in the United States' best interest to be in Libya.  So I ask why are we in Libya?

I Will Not Now Nor Shall I Ever Put Up With Anti-Catholic Bigotry

There is a difference between useful criticism of a particular religion and just spouting words of hate against one's religion.  This includes when a person just simply spouts off words without backing them up with facts. When someone consistently targets another's religion and solely focuses on attacking it consistently time after time one should not be surprised that a person who believes in that religion might get upset and defensive.  I am sick of certain conservative bloggers who have consistently engaged in Catholic bashing without giving useful or healthy criticism.  Apparently, I have lost a few conservative friends over the discussion defending the biblical truth that the Sabbath is on Sunday under the New Covenant.  It is also distressing that those who claim to be open-minded about biblical controversies weren't really open to being persuaded to the counter position even when shown biblical text and historical evidence.  I will always defend my Faith.  Following Christ and His Church are the most important things in my life and if people can't handle or understand that then I really feel sorry for them.  If they decide to unfriend me or stop following my blog oh well because in the end I know in my heart and soul that I am staying true to my beliefs.  When someone respects my religious beliefs I respects theirs.  It is as simple as that.

Voyagers!: I Wish We Had TV Shows Like This Today

As of late, I have been thinking about old television shows. Do you remember when most T.V. shows that were on television were wholesome, promoted ethical values, didn't have an anti-American slant, and didn't promote a political agenda? My husband and I began to make a list of old TV shows which we enjoyed watching while growing up. Do you remember any of these: Voyagers!, The Electric Company, Picture Pages, Captain Kangaroo, Chips, Emergency!, Little House on the Prairie, The Waltons, Walker Texas Ranger, The Brady Bunch, The Incredible Hulk, Lassie, Fat Albert, Great Space Coaster, Barney Miller, Good Times, and What's Happening!! ? Wouldn't it be nice if we had T.V. shows like this today that didn't propagandize kids?  Some of these were reruns when I was growing up.  Having shows that teach good morals is especially important for children today. What were some of your favorite T.V. shows growing up?

Here are a few shows from the past:

Great Space Coaster:



Picture Pages with Bill Cosby:



Here is full episode of the show Voyagers!:









There is a little bit of overlap with the videos so you can skip to about the 4 minute mark to continue watching the show.

School Choice and Better Opportunities: Woman Confronts Bill Ayers With Facts



H/T Breitbart 

Saturday or Sunday Sabbath? A Response To Christopher of Conservative Perspective

Christopher, at Conservative Perspective has a post where he shows why he thinks that Saturday should be considered the Sabbath Day.   While he emphasized that he doesn’t want me to use the "man’s word", in his post he himself relies on man’s word (he calls it "actual and verifiable history").    I will point out to you both Biblical and historical evidence to that proves that Sunday is indeed the true Sabbath Day.  In fairness I will only use a small sample of biblical and historical texts from long before the time of Constantine, on whom Christopher seems content to hang the "blame" for changing the Sabbath.

First, a very important piece of scriptural evidence.   There are many passages in the Old Testament that prophesy the end of the exclusive covenant between God and the  children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, to be replaced with a new and everlasting covenant between God and the whole world, Jews and Gentiles alike.  Many of them describe the new worship in prophetic terms.  In one particular passage it is specifically stated that the old sabbaths would be brought to an end.

"And I will cause all her mirth to cease, her solemnities, her new moons, her sabbaths, and all her festival times. " (Hosea 2:11, Douay Rheims Bible, referred to hereafter as DRB).

For a New Testament passage that fulfills this prophecy, we have Colossians 2:16-17 -

[16] Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of a festival day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths, [17] Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ.  [DRB]

Here is the same passage in a popular Protestant version:

Colossians 2:16 
16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. 17 Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.
[New International Version (NIV)] 


Here is a passage from Acts that shows the day they came together to "do this (the Eucharistic sacrifice) in memory of me" as he commanded [Luke 22:19; 1st Corinthians 11:24]:

Acts 20:7
[7] And on the first day of the week, when we were assembled to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, being to depart on the morrow: and he continued his speech until midnight.
[DRB ]


7 On the first day of the week we came together to break bread. Paul spoke to the people and, because he intended to leave the next day, kept on talking until midnight.
[NIV]

The first say of the week was known also as the eighth day, the 1st day of the New Creation.  It was also commonly known as "The Lord's Day", and in the Book of Revelation we see it referred to as that:


"On the Lord’s Day I was in the Spirit, and I heard behind me a loud voice like a trumpet,"
(Revelation 1:10 NIV)


In the Old Testament the Old Covenant was instituted when God gave a covenant through Moses to the Jews.  The Old Covenant was abolished at the cross.   Below are some more Biblical passages that talk about the superiority of the New Covenant and our freedom under it from the requirements of the Old Covenant.



Hebrews 8:6-7
6 But in fact the ministry Jesus has received is as superior to theirs as the covenant of which he is mediator is superior to the old one, since the new covenant is established on better promises.


 7 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another.



Freedom in Christ - Galations 5:1-6


 1 It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.
 2 Mark my words! I, Paul, tell you that if you let yourselves be circumcised, Christ will be of no value to you at all. 3 Again I declare to every man who lets himself be circumcised that he is obligated to obey the whole law. 4 You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. 5 For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. 6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love.



Here are quotations of Early Christians, showing that the tradition of Sunday worship goes back to the time of the apostles and their immediate successors.


90AD DIDACHE: "Christian Assembly on the Lord's Day: 1. But every Lord's day do ye gather yourselves together, and break bread, and give thanksgiving after having confessed your transgressions, that your sacrifice may be pure. 2. But let no one that is at variance with his fellow come together with you, until they be reconciled, that your sacrifice may not be profaned. 3. For this is that which was spoken by the Lord: In every place and time offer to me a pure sacrifice; for I am a great King, saith the Lord, and my name is wonderful among the nations." (Didache: The Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, Chapter XIV)


100 AD BARNABAS "We keep the eighth day [Sunday] with joyfulness, the day also on which Jesus rose again from the dead" (The Epistle of Barnabas, 100 AD 15:6-8).


100 AD BARNABAS: Moreover God says to the Jews, 'Your new moons and Sabbaths 1 cannot endure.' You see how he says, 'The present Sabbaths are not acceptable to me, but the Sabbath which I have made in which, when I have rested [heaven: Heb 4] from all things, I will make the beginning of the eighth day which is the beginning of another world.' Wherefore we Christians keep the eighth day for joy, on which also Jesus arose from the dead and when he appeared ascen+ded into heaven. (15:8f, The Epistle of Barnabas, 100 AD, Ante-Nicene Fathers , vol. 1, pg. 147) ,-


150AD JUSTIN: "He then speaks of those Gentiles, namely us, who in every place offer sacrifices to Him, i.e., the bread of the Eucharist, and also the cup of the Eucharist, affirming both that we glorify His name, and that you profane [it]. The command of circumcision, again, bidding [them] always circumcise the children on the eighth day, was a type of the true circumcision, by which we are circumcised from deceit and iniquity through Him who rose from the dead on the first day after the Sabbath, [namely through] our Lord Jesus Christ. For the first day after the Sabbath, remaining the first of all the days, is called, however, the eighth, according to the number of all the days of the cycle, and [yet] remains the first.". (Justin, Dialogue 41:4)


How we answer to the question of whether the true Sabbath is Saturday or Sunday depends on how we treat the tradition and authority of the Church Christ founded.  Some people believe that they can divorce the authority of scripture from the authority of the Church.  That is not only inconsistent (because the Church, by her divinely given authority, chose the canon of scripture, distinguishing divinely inspired books from those that lack divine inspiration), it is also unbiblical.  According to scripture, the pillar and foundation of truth is not scripture itself, but the Church:

1 Timothy 3:15 if I am delayed, you will know how people ought to conduct themselves in God’s household, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth. (NIV)

When Christ came He did not form a publishing house.  He did not write a book, and he did not command that books should be written.  He founded a Church.  The writing of books of scripture was part of the larger general command to teach and make disciples of all nations, to pass on the traditions that He taught his disciples.  That passing on of sacred tradition has always been and always will be through two channels of transmission - word of mouth and epistle, i.e. oral and written tradition:

2Thessalonians 2:15 So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter. (NIV)


2Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle.(DRB) 


The authority of scripture is the divine authority God gave to the Church.  It is incoherent to reject the latter in the name of the former.  It is a misuse of the Bible to lump sacred apostolic tradition in with the merely human tradition rightly condemned in scripture (Mark 7:8 and Colossians 2:8).  The same Bible that commands us to reject human tradition that denies the word of God tells us that the word of God will be given to us through sacred tradition.  The distinction between sacred apostolic tradition which we are commanded to keep and human tradition which we are commanded to reject is a scriptural distinction and absolutely necessary.

The central issue is in the opposite ways Christopher and I treat the teaching authority of the Church Christ founded.   He thinks he can disregard the authority of the Church while claiming to believe the Bible.  Scripture does not support his error.


Matthew 16:18 And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. (DRB) 

Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. 18 And I tell you that you are Peter,[b] and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades[c] will not overcome it. 19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 16:17-19 NIV)

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20 NIV)

And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. [19] Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. [20] Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. (Matthew 28:18-20) DRB) 


"He who listens to you listens to me; he who rejects you rejects me; but he who rejects me rejects him who sent me." Luke 10:16 (NIV)

The Economic Cost of Abortion

Abortion is not only a moral issue but is also an economic issue.   Abortion is murder. But looking beyond the immorality of abortion now let's take a look at the economic implications of abortions.  According to the statistics from 1973 to 2005 there have been at least 40,463,050 abortions performed since the Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade, when abortion was legalized.  For the purpose of taking into account accidents, diseases, and miscarriages that may have caused a certain number of deaths let's subtract 10 percent of these lives from the total amount that were aborted.  So if you subtract 4,046,305 from 40,463,050 you get 36,416,745.  Taking into account possible deaths from accidents etc. from 1973 - 1993 there were at least 20,754,095 abortions.  People who would have been born from 1973 to 1993 would be paying into the system today.  First, try and imagine 20,754,095 Americans being added to our population.  Then think about how it would be if these 20 million people were contributing to Social Security, and paying both State and Federal taxes.  Do you think we would have economic problems as severe as those we have now with the deficit, national debt, with the future funding of Social Security if we had an additional 20 million people paying into the system?

This is how abortion is destroying America:










Try and Imagine if 60 of the largest populated cities were wiped out from a nuclear war.  That is exactly the number of people that the United States has lost to the abortion industry.  Look here



Here is a very worthwhile video on the cost of abortion.  The video is about an hour in length but is extremely well done.  I suggest you grab a snack and a beverage before watching the video.

Autistic Boy Punched by Bullies; Says He's "Afraid" to Return to School

This is horrible! This poor boy.  No student should have to deal with being bullied at school, or being afraid while attending school.  The school and police really dropped the ball on this case.  Does there really have to be bloodshed for it to be considered assault?  That doesn't make sense.  And, evidently the police lied about the need for blood to be present for it to be considered an assault.  I hope this boy and his family get some additional help or takes this matter further in some way, so that the boy is able to feel safe at school. This story is heartbreaking.

The Obama Administration, the Health Care Law, and Double Counting, Again?

Back in November of 2010 Reason.com noted that Donald Berwick refused to comment when confronted during a Senate hearing about the administration's claim that the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act extends the Medicare Trust Fund.  It seems that Donald Berwick is standing by the Obama administrations double counting of savings in the new health care law.

From Reason.com:


For those in need of a refresher, here’s Medicare’s actuary:
In practice the improved (Medicare hospital insurance) financing cannot be simultaneously used to finance other Federal outlays (such as the coverage expansions) and to extend the trust fund, despite the appearance of this result from the respective accounting conventions.
To describe the full amount of HI trust fund savings as both improving the government’s ability to pay future Medicare benefits and financing new spending outside of Medicare would essentially double-count a large share of those savings.

Now you see that both the CBO and Medicare actuary's analysis of savings from the health care law differ from that of the Obama administration.  So, basically, both the CBO and medicare actuary findings conclude that the Obama administration's wrong. Maybe, that's why Berwick refused to answer the question?

Recently, Rep. John Shimkus pointedly forced Health and Human Services Secretary Sebelius to admit to the fact that the Obama administration is double counting the savings from the health care law.  The Obama administration is using trickery to give the appearance that there can be savings in the budget while using that same savings to fund another program - "the $500 billion cut in Medicare that supposedly goes for both cost control and to fund other parts of the program."   



From HotAir.com:


In her first appearance before the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee since the health-care law passed, Kathleen Sebelius responded to a line of questioning by Republican Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois about whether $500 billion in Medicare cuts were used to sustain the program or pay for the law.
“There is an issue here on the budget because your own actuary has said you can’t double-count,” said Shimkus. “You can’t count — they’re attacking Medicare on the CR when their bill, your law, cut $500 billion from Medicare.”
He continued: “Then you’re also using the same $500 billion to what? Say your funding health care. Your own actuary says you can’t do both. […] What’s the $500 billion in cuts for? Preserving Medicare or funding the health-care law?
Sebelius’ reply? “Both.”
In other words, money can only be used once. Since the Medicare savings is being spent elsewhere on expanded health care coverage, it is not really being employed to extend Medicare solvency. To claim an improvement in Medicare financing is to mislead about the effects of recent legislation.

A couple days ago I received an email from my Congressman, Rep. Tim Murphy, that reveals more double counting in the health care law -  an $86 billion Ponzi scheme in the health care law.

"Efforts to calculate the true cost of the healthcare law continued at the Energy and Commerce Committee on Thursday, where a hearing explored the financial integrity of a new long-term insurance “benefit” called the Community Living Assistance Services & Supports (CLASS) program. Intended to provide spending cash to workers who become disabled, CLASS has been characterized by accountants, and even the Administration’s own Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, as “totally unsustainable.”


"The CLASS program is a new government entitlement established by the healthcare law that would be funded with premiums deducted directly from workers’ paychecks. If a worker became disabled and had paid into the program, they would collect $50 a day from the government. But the Congressional Budget Office has suggested that the CLASS program will attract the sickest and most at-risk beneficiaries, therefore requiring massive taxpayer subsidies to keep CLASS afloat beyond ten years.


"During questioning by Rep. Murphy at Thursday’s hearing, a senior Administration official admitted that instead of using premiums paid into CLASS to pay benefits, the government was using the premiums to pay for the healthcare law.


“If any insurance company began collecting premiums and then tried to spend $86 billion before paying out a single penny in benefits, it would rightly be prosecuted,” said Murphy. “Last time I checked, such Ponzi schemes are illegal in this country, and this is just the newest in a long string of programs that will have to be de-funded or repealed outright.”

Wisconsin Public Sector Unions: Separating Fact From Fiction

Here is Governor Walker answering some tough questions:



Guess who Scott Walker's role model is?  None other than Ronald Reagan.  I tell ya, I really like this guy. He says that Reagan made the tough choices when it came to his firing more than 11,000 air traffic controllers who ignored Reagan's orders to get back to work.   Walker said he is prepared to follow in President Reagan's footsteps for as long as he is in office. Gov. Walker realizes that the stakes are high, just as they were back in 1981 when Reagan made bold and difficult decisions.

Unfortunately, Gov. Scott Walker and the rest of the GOP in Wisconsin have hit a bump in the road.  Judge Maryann Sumi has blocked the new law from going into effect.  Judge Sumi, who is a Democrat liberal activist judge, issued the injunction because she thinks that the legislative committee was required to give 24- hours notice which is required during the regular legislative session. But, this bill was not voted on or signed into law during the regular session but in fact during the special legislative session, where giving 24-hour notice is not a requirement.  These Democrats are unbelievable!  First, they run away and refuse to do their jobs and now they had the district attorney, who is a Democrat, file a lawsuit to stop the law.  These irresponsible fleebaggers didn't leave the GOP much choice.  The GOP gave the Democrats every opportunity to return but the Dems decided to take the low road.  What a bunch of cowards!  If the public sector unions had been willing to compromise instead of demanding lavish pay and benefits for the past 30 years or so then Gov. Walker and other Republican governors wouldn't have been faced with massive budget deficits, and forced to make huge budget cuts which includes limiting the unions so-called collective bargaining rights.  I have a feeling that Gov. Walker will prevail in this battle. 


Now, let's separate fact from fiction with regards to the Wisconsin protester's claims. 





Taxpayers have had enough and are not willing to pay for public sector employees excessive benefits and salaries any more. The unions need to contribute more to their benefits, just like those of us in the private sector do.

A Palestinian Terrorist Massacres the Israeli Fogel Family & Who Does the WSJ Call "Violent Vigilantes"?

From My Israel:
On Friday night two Palestinians slayed an entire Israeli family in their house while they were sleeping: Rabbi Udi Fogel (36), his wife Ruth (34), 11-year-old Yoav, four-year-old Elad and three-month-old Hadas


From Debbie Schlussel : 
 A Jewish family, including three young children, is stabbed to death by Palestinians, and the Wall Street Journal is worried about “violent Jewish vigilantes” against the Palestinians. 

Today’s Wall Street Journal report on the attacks includes the left-wing (and apparently self-hating) Jewish reporter, Joshua Mitnick’s worries–not about the Jews who are subject to violent slaughter and butchery, but that these Jews will be the “violent” ones.  Um, did this weekend’s slaying of the Fogel family not demonstrate who are the violent aggressors and who are their victims?  Apparently not to Mitnick, whose “reporting” is rarely different from the New York Times’ Mid-East coverage and who frequently inserts this kind of opinion and BS into his reports.  And that would explain why he was previously a welcomed “reporter” for the blatantly anti-Israel Christian Science Monitor.  Yesterday, this urinalist wrote:
The targeting of an area of Jewish settlers known for vigilantism against Palestinians also threatens to trigger an upsurge in violence.



That sentence appears in Mitnick’s article in today’s print edition of the Wall Street Journal.  What doesn’t appear online is the second part of the sentence, which is in the print edition, as well:
and police forces stepped up their presence on West Bank roads to prevent Arab-Jewish flare-ups as Israeli mourners from the funeral made their way home to the settlements.



For this "Jewish" reporter not to show one iota of empathy or condemnation of the perpetrators for the cold-blooded murder of an entire family, not to mention a 3 month old, 4 year old, and an 11 year old is abominable! Outrageous!   This reporter is sick!  This entire family just got massacred and this reporter is worried about "violent vigilante" Jews retaliating?  This is truly unbelievable!  This reporter must be living in his own indoctrination bubble filled with a recorder saying how "wonderful" and "peaceful" the Palestinian terrorists are and how "horrible: and "evil" Israel is, when this couldn't be further from the truth. This so-called Jew ought to just  stop pretending to be a Jew and become a Muslim since he seems to have so much love for Muslims and so much animosity and hatred towards Jews living in Israel.  The Jews were the victims and yet this moron blames the Jews.  Mitnick is standing up for the murderers, trying to play like they're the victims when these people are brutal barbarians who murdered a family while they were sleeping.  These Jewish settlers were mourning the deaths and this amoral whack job only cares about protecting the terrorists.  This friggin' dhimmitude must stop!  God rest the souls of this family.  Antisemitism in segments around the world is almost as bad today as it was during the days of WWII and in Nazi Germany.

And we have power because there are more than 3.2 million people who are willing to pay us hundreds of millions of dollars in dues …”
