Out With The Old Media

By Douglas Murray – July/August 2011

Logo Standpoint Magazine

One of the foundation myths of post-religious societies is the idea that reason will win out-that faced with reason or anti-reason people will follow the former path. But as we gain access to vast arrays of information, the combination of new and old media appears to be making fools of us in unexpected ways — not least in failing to ask any of the questions that so obviously need asking.

Increasingly, our societal position seems to be naivety. But not straightforward naivety, rather a kind of naivety arrived at via extreme scepticism. Scepticism is a curious drug. A good dose of the stuff never hurt anyone. But inhale too much of it and you can be stoned into docility. Those who like to believe that they think for themselves appear to become sceptical of everything other than the things they should be sceptical of.

Video: Walid Phares & Erick Stakelbeck om Hizbollah

Hizbollah har styrket sin magt betydeligt de seneste måneder. Libanon er stort set tabt og Israel er  mere truet end nogensinde før. Man kan læse en lille artikel om dette program hos CBN her. Fra 28. juni 2011:

Phares on CBN’s Stakelbeck on Terror: Overview and analysis of Hizballah

Middle East and Jihadi Terrorism expert and professor Dr. Walid Phares provides a comprehensive and historic overview of the creation, structure, motive and international activity of the Jihadi army Hizballah. Hizballah is Iran’s proxy and arm inside of Lebanon and has infiltrated the Lebanese government, furthering its (and Iran’s) ability to strategically surround Israel.

Holland & Geert Wilders har medvind

Geert Wilders pushes Netherlands to class immigrant grandchildren as non-native

Geert Wilders and his anti-Islam Freedom Party are pushing the Dutch government to class the grandchildren of immigrants as “allochtonen” or non-native.

Logo The Telegraph

By Bruno Waterfield – 29 Jun 2011

Under current law the third generation children of immigrants in Holland are classified as Dutch, in terms of government statistics and entitlements, as long as both their parents were born there.

But the anti-Muslim Freedom Party is concerned that by treating the grandchildren of immigrants as Dutch, 80 per cent of whom are under 10 years old, it will stop being possible to measure their integration.

The Netherlands Cuts Funding from Anti-Israel NGOs

by Soeren Kern – June 30, 2011

The Dutch Foreign Ministry says it will implement “sweeping reforms” to prevent the transfer of millions of taxpayer euros from going to Dutch humanitarian aid organizations that fund anti-Israel boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) activities and non-government organizations (NGOs) that deny Israel’s right to exist.

The move comes after Dutch Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal discovered that previous governments had allocated at least €10 million ($15 million) to Dutch and Palestinian groups promoting BDS activities against Israel.

Debate over the issue heated up on June 15, when the heads of major Dutch NGOs were asked to testify at a special hearing convened by the Dutch Parliament “to discuss the activity of NGOs in Israel and Palestine.”

Geert Wilders: Free at Last?

Edward Cline – June 29, 2011

In The Netherlands, a European country least likely to generate good news, Geert Wilders, the outspoken Dutch politician who was on trial for “hate speech,” was acquitted of having committed the alleged crime. We are patiently waiting for such news to emanate from other least likely European countries that are also beset by masses of non-integrating Muslims and the incremental Islamazation: Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, whose crime rates have skyrocketed because immigrant Muslims do not feel obliged to adapt to the countries they invaded or recognize any morality but their own, which is primitive, bestial, and immune from reason.

Albertans can dump kangaroo court 

By Ezra Levant – June 28, 2011

There’s a glimmer of good news in the fight against Canada’s kangaroo courts, also known as human rights commissions.

Over the weekend, the Wildrose Party of Alberta, running a close second in provincial opinion polls, passed a resolution to scrap Alberta’s human rights commission and strengthen protections for freedom of speech.

This is great news for freedom — and bad news for government bureaucrats who will now have to find real work.

It’s a trend: The government of Saskatchewan recently passed a bill to scrap its human rights tribunal — not repealing the human rights law altogether, but at least getting it in front of real judges, instead of partisan activists who run the tribunal like a political star chamber. But just as important as getting rid of the pretend judges is getting rid of the counterfeit “right not to be offended.”

The Purposeful Flooding of America’s Heartland

By Joe Herring – June 22, 2011

The Missouri River basin encompasses a vast region in the central and west-central portion of our country.  This river, our nation’s longest, collects the melt from Rocky Mountain snowpack and the runoff from our continents’ upper plains before joining the Mississippi river above St. Louis some 2,300 miles later.  It is a mighty river, and dangerous.

Some sixty years ago, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) began the process of taming the Missouri by constructing a series of six dams.  The idea was simple: massive dams at the top moderating flow to the smaller dams below, generating electricity while providing desperately needed control of the river’s devastating floods.

Are Midwest Floods Caused by Global Warming or Radical Environmentalists?

Roger Aronoff – June 28, 2011

Iowa floods 2011Many Global Warming Alarmists are pointing to the floods in the Midwest as the latest proof of global warming. But a powerful piece at AmericanThinker.com provides an alternative suggestion as to the real cause of the flooding: the perhaps unintended consequences of radical environmentalist policies regarding the system of dams on the Missouri River. 

 Al Gore gave a speech in New York last week in which he linked the flooding in the Midwest and the fires in Arizona to global warming: “Today, the biggest fire in the history of the state of Arizona is spreading to New Mexico. Today, the biggest flood in the history of the Mississippi River Valley is under way right now,” Gore said. “At what point is there a moment where we say, ‘Oh, we ought to do something about this?’”

Iraqi Kurdistan Passes Law Against FGM

by Irfan Al-Alawi – June 27, 2011

Logo Hudson New York

The parliament of Iraqi Kurdistan registered an important victory against Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) on Wednesday, June 22, when it passed, by a large majority, legislation banning the practice. The brutal and un-Islamic custom of FGM has now been criminalized in the Iraqi Kurdish region, even as Western European countries have vacillated on its prohibition.

The success of Iraqi Kurdistan’s anti-FGM law has been partly credited to sustained investigative and lobbying work by a German/Iraqi non-governmental organization, WADI. The group has conducted surveys, beginning in 2007, revealing the wide incidence of infliction of FGM among Iraqi Kurds. WADI has disclosed that more than 60 percent of women and girls in Iraqi Kurdistan have been subjected to genital mutilation.

Shakira is still a hit. As a Unicef ambassador and founder of the Barefoot Foundation, she was in Israel this past week with Shimon Peres at the Israeli Presidential Conference promoting education. Disney/Pixar just released “Cars 2” in 3D and Simon Cowell is working on a new show, “The X-Factor”.

For five years, Schalit has been held incognito. His terrorist captors have permitted him to send but one letter to his family and released but one video of Schalit over this entire period. He has been denied visits by the International Committee of the Red Cross. He was clearly emaciated in the video.

The Egyptian-born anti-Islamic activist Nonie Darwish, whose life story and outspoken views on Israel and the Arab world make her someone Jews should support, was unfairly tarred in Tablet

By David Horowitz | Jul 7, 2011

Tablet Magazine has published a bizarre attack by Jeremy Seth Davis on an incredibly brave Arab defender of Israel and the Jews. Nonie Darwish is the daughter of an Egyptian general who was chief of intelligence for Gamel Abdel Nasser. Nasser was the dictator whose armies invaded Israel in 1956, when Gaza was part of Egypt and the West Bank had been annexed by Jordan and nobody referred to Arabs as “Palestinians.” Darwish’s family lived in Gaza, and her father created the Fedayeen, the first terrorist organization dedicated to the murder of Jews and the destruction of the Jewish state. Her father was responsible for the murder of numerous Israeli civilians before he was killed by the Israeli Defense Forces in a targeted assassination. At the time, Nonie was 8 years old.

In his nationally televised address on Afghanistan Wednesday, President Obama proposed withdrawing virtually all 100,000 U.S. troops from the country by 2014. By the end of 2011, Obama would pull out 10,000 of the 100,000 U.S. troops currently in Afghanistan. In 2012, 23,000 more soldiers will be withdrawn, reducing the number to 67,000—the same number present before the troop “surge” deployed there in conjunction with the President’s December 2009 West Point speech, which outlined a new U.S. strategy in Afghanistan.

Ayaan Hirsi Ali om præsident Obama og Afghanistan

Obama’s Afghanistan withdrawal: another sign of America’s decline?

Logo The Christian Science Monitor MediumTo the Taliban – and much of the world – the withdrawal is a sign of US weakness. The short-term benefits of abandoning counterinsurgency in Afghanistan may be politically appealing. But the long-term costs may be greater than Obama anticipates.

By Ayaan Hirsi Ali / June 27, 2011

On Wednesday, President Obama announced he would order a gradual troop withdrawal from Afghanistan. On a superficial level there is nothing surprising about this decision. Mr. Obama is simply implementing what he had promised the American people in 2009 when he agreed to honor Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s request for more troops. The surge was always going to be temporary, especially in view of budgetary pressures caused by the financial crisis.

A second glance at the president’s speech reveals something more interesting, however. In between the lines, what he said amounts to the elimination of a key component in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, and the elevation of a minor practice.

Pakistani power elite profoundly duplicitous, says Rushdie

The power elite of Pakistan is “profoundly duplicitous,” says controversial Indian-origin author Salman Rushdie, who finds it “ludicrous” that al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden hid in the heart of that country without anybody’s knowledge.

Calling the system in Pakistan “deeply unstable, corrupt and militarist”, Rushdie said the Indian perspective would believe that in having Pakistan as an ally, the West “is in bed with the wrong people”.

It is one of the most heavily trafficked news sites anywhere, and it reaches an influential audience. Since September 2009, I have published nearly 50 articles there, and look forward to publishing many more.

The Hamas — Oops, Gaza — Flotilla

We’re on the verge of another “flotilla” to Gaza.

Estimates of the number of ships and participants vary from day to day, tending downward, but the erstwhile organizers insist that the maritime operation will take place.

Their spokesmen have been hyperactive in drawing attention to the event. After all, without coverage, they’d be denied their oxygen. And the kind of coverage they seek – idealistic humanists and peace activists determined to aid the poor, beleaguered residents of Gaza versus stone-hearted oppressors in military uniforms determined to block them at all costs – would, needless to say, portray Israel in the worst possible light.

The International Solidarity Movement, Free Gaza Movement, U.S. Boat to Gaza, and kindred spirits want the world to believe there is a strip of land called Gaza that, left to its own devices, would create the Shangri-La of the Middle East.
