Washington sets stage for Israel’s back-off from demand to shut Fordo

DEBKAfile:

Grave concern was voiced in Jerusalem over the upbeat accounts appearing Thursday, Feb. 28 of the six-power talks with Iran which ended Wednesday in Almati, Kazakhstan. A Western diplomat described the nuclear talks as “more constructive and positive than in the past.” For the first time, said the diplomat, “they were really focusing on the proposal on the table” although he admitted that Iran’s willingness to negotiate seriously will not become clear until an April meeting.

[…]

Israel’s categorical demand is for the immediate closure of the Fordo plant.
But this is not what the US delegation put before the Iranian negotiators in Kazakhstan. Instead of demanding the plant’s shutdown, the American proposal was for Iran to suspend 20 percent uranium enrichment in a way that “constrains the ability to quickly resume operations” there.

This is a major letdown for Israel’s expectations and for Binyamin Netanyahu. No wonder the Iranian foreign minister was upbeat.

Germans lurching toward anti-Semitism

By ISI LEIBLER:

There is growing resentment against Jews, who are blamed for imposing excessive emphasis on collective German national guilt for the Holocaust. Anti-Jewish hostility is often expressed in the more “politically respectable” demonization of the Jewish nation state, allegedly not related to anti-Semitism although the “Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe” (OSCE) explicitly defines such behavior as anti-Semitic.The German Left has accused Israel of war crimes, occupation and racism and also engages in inverse Holocaust imagery, enthusiastically condemning Israel for allegedly behaving toward the Palestinians as its Nazi forebears did to the Jews.

When reproached for engaging in anti-Semitism, the Left condemns the “global Zionist propaganda machine” for seeking to deny Germans the right to criticize Israeli government policies. These trends are fortified by the sizable Islamic migrant community – now numbering over four million – which aggressively agitates against Israel, utilizing obscene placards at demonstrations, chanting “gas the Jews” or “death to the Jews.” Muslims are at the forefront of violence directed at identifiable Jews in urban areas, especially in Berlin, where some Jewish communal leaders are now recommending Jews avoid wearing kipot in public.

White House Under Fire Over “Threatening” Email To Bob Woodward – Mark Levin on Cavuto

The UN’s Alliance Of Bigots

Joseph A. Klein:

The United Nations “Alliance of Civilizations,” co-founded by Turkey and Spain, has an annual budget of approximately four million U.S. dollars. It just completed its Fifth Global Forum this past week in Vienna. The ostensible theme of the lavish two-day gathering was “Responsible Leadership in Dialogue and Diversity.”

According to its appropriately named “Vienna Declaration,” the forum was aimed, among other things, at an informed debate on how responsible leadership can make a difference in promoting and protecting full enjoyment of the right to freedom of religion and belief in “a context of religious pluralism” and “greater diversity.”

Outlining his vision to make the Alliance of Civilizations more active in addressing acute inter-ethnic and inter-religious tensions, the High Representative for the Alliance of Civilizations, Nassir Al-Nasser of Qatar, stated, “We will strive to use the tools at our disposal in the difficult settings around the world. We will not shy away from them.”

How noble. Unfortunately, the Alliance of Civilizations’ lavish global forum turned at times into a perversion of its stated mission. The Emir of Qatar H H Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, for example, used his speech to complain about “an increase in the manifestations of misunderstanding about Islam and the Islamic civilisation in addition to the Muslims’ suffering from marginalisation, discrimination and hatred in many parts of the globe.” The Emir called “the Palestinian cause” the “last colonial issue in history.”

Where, in the interest of inter-faith tolerance and dialogue, was the Emir’s acknowledgment of manifestations of misunderstanding about Christianity, Judaism and other faiths in the Muslim world, where non-Muslims suffer from marginalization, discrimination and hatred? Where is his call for good faith dialogue towards reaching a viable two-state Palestinian Israeli solution and rejection of the call by Hamas – whom the Emir visited in Gaza late last year – to destroy the entire Jewish state?

Irresponsible, bigoted leadership was also on display at the Alliance of Civilizations forum.

Exhibit A was a speech delivered on February 27th by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. His hateful remarks equated Zionism with fascism and, curiously enough, with anti-Semitism. He labeled each of these “isms,” starting with Zionism, as “a crime against humanity” and said that Islamophobia belongs in the same crime against humanity category.

Sadly, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon – who was present on the stage – remained silent.

Actress Roma Downey, Husband Mark Burnett Team on Epic Bible Miniseries

By Cyrus Afzali:

Television producer Mark Burnett and his wife, actress Roma Downey, have teamed to create a new 10-hour miniseries titled “The Bible” that will air next month on The History Channel.

The miniseries will debut March 3 and will air for five consecutive Sundays, concluding Easter Sunday.

Story continues below.

Burnett, an Emmy Award winner best known for creating a number of reality shows, including “The Apprentice,” “Survivor,” “Shark Tank,” and “The Voice,” said the forthcoming miniseries is the most important work he’s done to date.

“We completely believe in the Bible, but beyond that, it’s the most important book in history. It’s the foundation of our society and our laws and has created so much art through the centuries,” he said. “No one has ever done a series that took it from Genesis through Revelation. We’re just so humbled and privileged that we got the chance to make this for television globally.”

He and Downey, a Golden Globe winner, hope the miniseries will encourage viewers to rediscover the Bible.

Downey called the three-and-a-half year effort “a passionate project.”

“There’s been nothing greater for us. It’s deepened our love, marriage, and our faith,” she said.

Europe: A Continent in Flight

Bruce Bawer:

It also quoted Britain’s Chief Rabbi as warning that “the position of Jews in Europe today is very difficult….Jews in Europe have begun to ask, is there a place for us here?” Perhaps the most telling detail in the Jewish Chronicle article was this: while the SPCJ report “originally stated that in over three-quarters of the antisemitic incidents the perpetrators were reported as being of North African origin,” this fact was later deleted from the text.

While French Jews flee to London, Londoners are scurrying elsewhere. On February 19, the BBC reported that over 600,000 ethnic Brits have moved out of the capital in the last decade. Predictably, BBC editor Mark Easton spun this on the Beeb’s website as a positive development, arguing that all this relocation is a sign of “working class aspiration and economic success.” In other words, “in the first decade of the 21st Century, the dream of escaping to the country became a reality for tens of thousands of urban white Britons,” who “prospered from the housing boom and the capital’s economic growth” and “bought themselves that little cottage in the countryside or by the sea.”

Easton’s piece garnered over two thousand reader reactions before the BBC shut down comments. A large percentage of them were removed for violating the “house rules.” Of those that were permitted to remain, the following expressed what was by far the majority view:

• “Native Londoners are being driven out because their neighbourhoods are being overrun by cultures that are very different to, and sometimes openly hostile to their own….Politicians continue to sell this country’s future to advance their own political careers.”

• “Labour mis-sold multiculturalism as a pipe dream of diverse, thriving communities enriching each other’s cultures, when in reality it is much, much different.”

• “I challenge any MP (preferably Labour or Lib Dem) to go live in Peckham for a week, without your drivers or bodyguards, and then come back and tell me that multiculturalism is a good thing.”

• “Only this type of BBC/Guardian liberal could put the gloss of ‘success’ and ‘aspiration’ on this story….People are sick of this social experiment. They are voting with their feet.”

UK: Unemployment Benefits to Finance Jihad

by Soeren Kern:

A radical Islamic cleric who lives off the British welfare state has been filmed urging his followers to quit their jobs and claim unemployment benefits so they have more time to plot holy war against non-Muslims.

Excerpts of the speech, published by the London-based newspaper The Sun on February 17, have drawn renewed attention to the growing problem of Muslims in Britain and elsewhere who are exploiting European welfare systems.

In the video, Anjem Choudary — a former lawyer who has long campaigned to bring Islamic Sharia law to Britain and other European countries (here, here and here) — is recorded as saying that Muslims are justified in taking money from non-Muslims.

Speaking to a group of Muslim men, Choudary mocks non-Muslims for working in nine-to-five jobs their whole lives. He says: “You find people are busy working the whole of their life. They wake up at 7 o’clock. They go to work at 9 o’clock. They work for eight, nine hours a day. They come home at 7 o’clock, watch EastEnders [a British soap opera], sleep, and they do that for 40 years of their life. That is called slavery. … What kind of life is that? That is the life of the Kuffar [a non-Muslim].”

Choudary urges fellow Muslims to learn from revered figures in Islamic history who only worked one or two days a year. “The rest of the year they were busy with Jihad [holy war] and things like that,” he says.

Choudary continues: “People will say, ‘Ah, but you are not working.’ But the normal situation is for you to take money from the kuffar [non-Muslims]. So we take Jihad Seeker’s Allowance.”

‘Forward!’ They Cried

By Warren Beatty:

Bottom line: “Socialism and fascism are both forms of statism, forms of government in which the government is given complete or extensive control over the lives of its citizens.” Though they do have some technical differences, fascism and socialism are basically the same. Both socialism and fascism are vehemently opposed to capitalism. (By the way, this article provides a very good examination of socialism and fascism.)

So? Why this history lesson, you ask? What about socialism? Simply this: it’s amazing the similarities between Hitler’s and Mussolini’s socialism, and that of Dear Leader Barack Hussein Obama, Jr., along with their views on capitalism. This history lesson, then, illustrates what may lie ahead for this country if Obama continues with his “reforms”, his wealth reallocation, and his view of social justice.

From the ‘Most Transparent Administration in History’ to Threatening and Attacking Bob Woodward

by Bryan Preston:

In 2008, Barack Obama promised to have the most transparent government in U.S. history. In 2010, he claimed to have made good on that promise.

In the 2012 presidential debates, Obama claimed that the sequester, which will kick in March 1 if no deal between the White House and Congress can be reached today, was not something that he proposed.

Veteran reporter Bob Woodward exposed Obama’s tall tale about the sequester. It was something that his White House had proposed, and the president himself had signed off on.

Now Woodward finds himself under attack from the “most transparent administration in history.”

Woodward Emails Back Claim of White House Intimidation

by John Nolte:

Politico obtained the email exchange (Gee, I wonder from who?) between Bob Woodward and Obama’s economic advisor, Gene Sperling. The emails back up Woodward’s claim that he was told by a top White House official he would “regret” his reporting.

The emails also reveal a kind of psychological manipulation and intimidation that many should be familiar with. I call them “screamers.” Others might call them bullies; but these are people who intimidate through screaming when they don’t get their way. Then, when that doesn’t work, they always come back and apologize but the passive-aggressive bullying remains — the “is it or isn’t it a threat” wording is almost always a part of the apology.

This is an incredible case of the White House attempting to bully the most iconic reporter of the 20th century – the reporter who, along with Carl Bernstein, took down a president of the United States. So you might expect the rest of the media to stand with Woodward. You’d be wrong. They’re too busy spending time playing defense for the White House.

One Hundred Reasons to Abandon Public Education Now

By Daren Jonescu:

In a recent article, I noted in passing that “there are a hundred compelling reasons for removing your children and grandchildren from the public schools, regardless of any practical or financial inconveniences this may cause you.” My choice of the round figure one hundred was purely a rhetorical flourish — there are actually far more than a hundred reasons to abolish public education, one child at a time if necessary.

By way of proving this point, I offer the following list for your consideration and dissemination:
