“Family Planning Official dragged my wife into a dark room and beat her brutally. She gripped their legs and knelt down to beg, ‘I know I’m wrong. Please forgive me. Please forgive me…”
This chilling account of the savage beating of a woman in China is pulled from a groundbreaking new report released last week by Women’s Rights Without Frontiers. The report recounts in excruciating detail thirteen new, documented cases of the brutal coercion that women and their families routinely experience under the country’s one-child policy.
The report was leaked out of China by a source who requested anonymity for fear of the reprisals that other critics of the one-child policy have been subjected to. It was unveiled at a U.S. Congressional Hearing on the one-child policy, held September 22.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu slammed his Turkish counterpart Monday evening for “scandalous” remarks during the United Nations General Assembly.
Netanyahu accused Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan of outright incitement for statements made to CNN regarding the Nazi Holocaust of the Jews and accusing Israel of “killing hundreds of thousands of Palestinians.”

The Los Angeles Times is, like the NY Times, a reliably anti-Israel newspaper whose liberal/progressive/leftist slant often veers into support for the Jew-hatred that is the foundation of Palestinian terror.
Even their entertainment articles frequently marinate in a radical ideology that extends to an ignorant and vile denial of Jewish, not to mention literary history.
In this brief announcement of an anniversary release of a Ben Hur DVD, the Charlton Heston character, Judah Ben Hur, is referred to as a “Palestinian nobleman.”
In the book and in all the movies Judah Ben Hur is a Jewish merchant.
This charade of so-called Palestinian history is a replacement ideology, Jewish history erased by faux Palestinians, a post-modern construct with zero historical basis.
I might add that this is also a fabrication of movie history.
This is a classic example of the big lie that was used by the Nazis to persecute and ultimately commit genocide against the Jews. This strategy is being used by the Muslim world, Arab, Turkish and Persian, to demonize the Jewish people and create an environment where the murder of Jews is not only acceptable but necessary.

How could a bureaucratic bottleneck in the Gulf of Mexico cost the U.S. economy nearly $20 billion and wipe out hundreds of thousands of jobs as far away as Ohio, Pennsylvania and California? Unfortunately, with this White House administration, anything is possible.
President Obama recently announced yet another jobs initiative — knowing all the while that one very simple action on his part would indeed create new jobs, infuse federal and state budgets with billions of dollars, and make us less reliant on imports. But that didn’t happen.
On Oct. 12, 2010, Interior Secretary Ken Salazar said, “We’re open for business,” signaling that drilling for new oil in the Gulf of Mexico would resume. But, Mr. Salazar has an odd interpretation of the words “open for business.”

In the midst of a larger monologue, Rush took a couple of minutes to say that he is absolutely not surprised that Herman Cain won the Florida straw poll this past weekend. He says that it’s because Herman Cain is consistently conservative, has a clear and understandable 9-9-9 plan and that he takes it to Obama. Rush says he knows the American people, and they don’t want another John McCain. So he’s not surprised at all about Cain’s victory.
I really, really like Cain.

About a year ago, I posted an Arabic language poem titled “Tears at the Heart of the Holocaust” on my website, ArabsForIsrael.com. The poem expressed its Arab author’s love for the Jewish people and his mourning over what happened to them in the Holocaust. The brave poet, Mr. Alaa Alsaegh, is an immigrant to the US from Iraq, who now lives in Missouri. Such poems did not sit well with the Muslim community, which caused Mr. Alsaegh to be alienated from it. He received threats because of his support for the Jewish people, was called an infidel and a traitor to Islam, but he continued with his writing of poems and did not take the threats too seriously.
Mr. Alsaegh, as well as Muslim critics and former Muslims who are accused of apostasy, are living under threats, but, lo and behold, if we dare to speak about our fears, we are immediately silenced and accused of being Islamophobes.

Reprinted from IsraelNationalNews.com.
Israeli families are not paid rewards by their government when their relatives are killed. Israeli soldiers do not use children as shields when they initiate a firefight with terrorists. Israeli schools and summer camps don’t brainwash pupils to undertake violence against civilians. Israeli religious figures do not laud children who engage in terror operations.
So what cause, no matter how deeply held, can motivate the current Palestinian society to sacrifice its generations, its future, to the most horrible form of childhood molestation and child sacrifice? The way in which the Palestinian Authority educates children and society is a key indicator of its true intentions.
Convincing ordinary individuals to sacrifice themselves to kill the Jews is not easy, it requires subhuman ideas and institutions.

By rejecting both of US President Barack Obama’s requests — to avoid a United Nations bid for Palestinian Statehood and to return to the negotiating table — the Palestinian Authority President, Mahmoud Abbas, is now hoping to join the bandwagon of the few Arab and Muslim leaders who have dared to stand up to the Americans.
For many years, Abbas’s Arab and Muslim enemies had condemned him as a “puppet” in the hands of the US.
But his decision to dump the US will certainly help him get rid of that image. Abbas is well aware of the fact that anti-American sentiments remain as high as ever in most of the Arab and Islamic countries. This was the reason he decided that it would be unwise of him to continue swimming against this tide.

Nothing is worse for Black Americans, African-Americans, Afro-Americans, soul brothers and sisters, people of color, non-ofays, or whatever you choose to call that particular minority segment of our society than the Congressional Black Caucus.
No, I take that back. There are worse things — for all of us — like a national debt the size of the Horsehead Nebula — but it is pretty bad. Like a Boris Karloff mummy escaped from some indestructible subterranean tomb, the Black Caucus has come back to haunt us with an ideology so outdated you can’t even find it on the Rosetta Stone.
We’re in the era of Herman Cain, people, not Maxine Waters, Jesse Jackson, the stultifying Travis Smiley, or that man who has put a generation of Harvard and Princeton students into perpetual narcoleptic sleep — Dr. Cornel West.
And while we’re at it, all other caucuses based on race, religion, creed, or national origin should be put out to pasture along with it.

The European Jewish Congress was recently roiled by a message allegedly from the Reuters email address of Svebor Kranjc, a Dutch camerman and picture editor, supporting the Palestinian statehood bid.
According to the Jerusalem Post, the email — which was responding to an EJC press release against the unilateral Palestinian statehood push — said:
“I am going to support it!” the e-mail read, referring to the UN statehood bid. “You have your state but you don’t want others to have their state. So sad . . . ”
In an exclusive email to HonestReporting, Flo Kaufmann, chairman of the the EJC council explained why her organization is pushing for Kranjc’s dismissal:
Arrested: December 2004
Days Imprisoned: 2464
Released Aug. 31, 2011
Pastor Zhang Rongliang was sentenced to 7 1/2 years in prison. According to China Aid Association the verdict was issued by Zhongmu County People’s Court.
Pastor Zhang Rongliang, a prominent Chinese house church leader, was arrested in a rented apartment at Xuzhai village the afternoon of December 1, 2004. Zhang already had spent 12 years in prison for his faith during five separate detentions. He experienced harsh torture, including electric shock, during his previous prison terms. After being held in prison for a year, officials attempted to transfer him from a prison in Xinmi to one in Zhongmu. Fearing that because of his fragile condition he might die, officials at Zhongmu would not accept him. He was instead taken to a hospital in Xinmi.
Pastor Zhang suffers from diabetes and high blood pressure in addition to other chronic health problems. Later he was transferred to a Zhongmu City hospital where he spent most of February and March 2006.
He appeared in court April 6, 2006, more than 16 months after his arrest, for his third hearing on charges of “attaining a passport through cheating” and “illegal border crossing.” At this hearing the court acknowledged there was insufficient evidence for the case and asked for legal advice from a higher court.
Pastor Zhang Released
After seven and half years of in prison, Pastor Zhang Rongliang was released. Even though he was tortured and even faced death, Zhang intends to continue ministering and living for the Lord. He has moved to a coastal town to live with a family member, rest, spend quiet time with God and seek his will for future ministry.
Pastor Rongliang thanks the Lord and all those who prayed for him during his time in prison. It is uncertain whether government officials are keeping him under surveillance. Please pray for Zhang as he recovers and continues ministering in China.
Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman was recently in Canada for meetings with politicians and media en route to the UN for last week’s showdown over the Palestinian bid for statehood.
In an interview with Sun News last week, Lieberman threatened “a very strong reaction” should the Palestinian Authority’s unilateral declaration of independence pass at the United Nations. While in Ottawa on September 19, Lieberman said that the Israeli response to the Palestinian gambit was yet to be determined, but that Israel’s “reaction to the unilateral decision will be very strong. Everyone understands it is a very bad direction and a precedent for other parts of the world.”
Canoë, the French-language news portal based in Quebec, carried the Sun News story with a shocking twist. Its headline and lead paragraph declared that Israel and its Foreign Minister, “Threatens the World”. Though such a headline would be understandable if referring to Iran or North Korea, describing peaceful and democratic Israel as a country that “threatens the world” is egregious.
By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard:
Angela Merkel told German industry today that we are not facing “a euro crisis, but a debt crisis.”
She is wrong. Total levels of private and sovereign debt in the eurozone are lower than in the UK, the US, and far lower than in Japan.
Greece’s debt levels are around 250pc of GDP, at the lower end of the developed world.
Spain’s sovereign debt is admirably modest at around 65pc. Italy’s household debt level is the envy of the rich world. It has a primary budget surplus. Italy has many problems, but the budget deficit is not one of them.
So why is there such a destructive and long-festering crisis in the eurozone? Why have three countries required an EU-IMF bail-out? Why is the ECB having to shore the debt markets of five countries — soon to be six — with direct bond purchases, including Spain and Italy?
Not because of debt, except in the most superficial sense.
Arab propaganda is so outrageous that last December a German woman was killed by a shark attack at Sharm El Sheik in the Sinai. The Arab media suggested then that the Shark was Jewish/Mossad and was trying to destroy the Egyptian tourism business. Here is a great satirical piece on how ridiculous the Arab Jew hate propaganda is.
