Never Again? Think Again!

For anyone who has convinced themselves that hate and anti-Semitism is a problem existing only in 'other' places, this banner was flown over a Brooklyn beach this afternoon!

And then of course there's the Middle East, Europe...

'New Yorkers enjoying the sunny weather in Brighton Beach and Coney Island on Saturday got a nasty airborne surprise — a plane towing a banner bearing a swastika-themed message.

The streamer said in symbols that a swastika plus peace equals love. Then it read, in all capital letters, “Proswastika.”

Councilman Mark Treyger (D-Brooklyn) said he received several complaints over the anti-Semitic aerial display.

“It’s a very chilling image, in light of the fact that southern Brooklyn has the largest remaining number of World War II and Holocaust survivors,” Treyger said. “There is no place for this in New York City.”

Speaking of the world, from Elder of Zion 'Turkish singer tweets "May God bless Hitler," yearns for Muslims to "bring the end of those Jews"



What a hero looks like!

The decision that Lebron made to bring his talents back to the Cavaliers has been called heroic by some and Lebron called a returning hero by others. 

Very often though the terms hero, courage and selfless actions are applied to people and events that, while extraordinary, may not rise to the level that the words convey.

Poll results: Muslims love Obama!

A poll conducted by Gallup showed that of any religious denomination in the United States, Muslims by far are most approving of Barack Obama's job performance!

I suppose the response that I would have is to ask whether is it really any wonder or great surprise that this is how the results of the poll would play out?

After all everything that this President seems to say and do would appeal to a great many Muslims around the world so why not a majority in the US as well?

And for other religions his domestic agenda in conjunction with his foreign policy would in many ways be the antithesis of what would be appealing.

But rather than simply making a blanket statement concerning the reasons why the poll would play out the way that it did, let's look at a small sample of articles from throughout his years in office.

I will also say that what is absolutely astounding is that Jews approval of the job that the President is doing is over 50%.

Democrats in Congress need to get a pair of these!

Maybe then they would choose to do the right thing when making decisions and casting votes rather than simply the politically expedient in the hope of getting reelected and maintaining power!

Of course some of them such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are pure ideologues who will always put politics and power above right and wrong and the law.

But maybe, just maybe, there are some others who, with the help of a pair of these, would choose instead to act in the best interest of the country.


Are the PIIGS going to get slaughtered?

Is the huge move down in EU sovereign debt yields over the past two years sustainable or are the cracks forming in Portugal a reminder that in the financial markets the more things change the more that they stay the same!

In other words will it be another one of history's examples of  bulls and bears making money and of PIIGS being slaughtered?

Obama legacy: Terrorists seize 88 pounds of uranium in Iraq!

Foreign policy? The only ball our President actually keeps his eye on is a golf ball!
Besides playing politics, fundraising, scandalizing, misleading and outright lying to the American people, creating a more dangerous world is what Barack Obama does best!

The following story from Reuters represents only one of the horrendous although predictable outcomes of the Obama administrations failed foreign policy.

The problem with this one, however, is that it could result in a dirty bomb(s) detonated somewhere in the United States.

This crisis also clearly shows why a president needs to focus on issues other than raising money, playing politics and golf!

(Reuters) - Insurgents in Iraq have seized nuclear materials used for scientific research at a university in the country's north, Iraq told the United Nations in a letter appealing for help to "stave off the threat of their use by terrorists in Iraq or abroad."

Nearly 40 kilograms (88 pounds) of uranium compounds were kept at Mosul University, Iraq's U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim told U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in the July 8 letter obtained by Reuters on Wednesday.

"Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state," Alhakim wrote, adding that such materials "can be used in manufacturing weapons of mass destruction."

"These nuclear materials, despite the limited amounts mentioned, can enable terrorist groups, with the availability of the required expertise, to use it separate or in combination with other materials in its terrorist acts," said Alhakim.

He warned that they could also be smuggled out of Iraq... (Source)
