The Boston Marathon bomber events present problems to the liberal worldview on three policy fronts:
Skeptics of the Marco Rubio “Gang of Eight” immigration bill being put forth are not opposed to immigration.
America is a nation of immigrants.
The Boston Marathon bombers show the need to control immigration — to make sure new immigrants have assimilated into American life, to have actually become Americans. We want to make sure those who have green cards and who become U.S. citizens actually like America.
The older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, said that he did not have a single American friend, did not understand Americans.
Who were his friends? Clearly, not Americans.
Not only do we need to secure our borders. We need an immigration policy that allows the rate of immigration to be at a level where we can be reasonably be sure new immigrants are truly ready to be Americans, understand what makes America special and different from the rest of the world.
We want people here who love America.
2) Gun control
The Boston Marathon bombers showed how much murder and mayhem can be caused without guns. The al Qaeda magazine Inspire published an article titled “How to Make a Bomb in Your Mom’s Kitchen” that details how to make a powerful bomb with a pressure cooker — apparently the inspiration for these two young men.
Tim McVeigh and company blew up a federal building, killing 168 people and injuring more than 800 with a bomb made out of fertilizer.
This week, we saw the incredible devastation caused by the blowing up of a fertilizer plant in Texas. An entire community leveled. We still don’t know the number of dead and injured from that event.
So there are many ways to kill a lot of people without guns.
Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.
Guns aren’t evil. But some people are evil . . . and will find a way to kill you if they want to.
3) Radical Islam
The liberal-left were praying the Marathon Bombers were tax protesters or Tea Party types. But no. Predictably, the bombers were radical Islamists.
Salon magazine published a truly disgraceful article titled “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.”
But the truth is there is something about the Islam religion that fosters violence.
Islam is not like other world religions. We don’t fear Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, or Christians.
We don’t fear Mormons, Scientologists, or Astrologers.
But there’s something at the heart of the Islam religion that is very dark.
Islam is the world’s most belligerant religion, the most warlike religion.
Certainly, not all Muslims are violent. I have some Muslim friends who are wonderful people who love America.
But I would argue that these Muslim friends of mine fall into the category of nominal Muslims. Much like nominal Christians consider themselves to be Christians but don’t actually go to church regularly, these nominal Muslim friends of mine are clearly not subscribing to the entire Muslim program.
In Muslim countries, we continue to see women stoned for adultery and lesser sins. We see Muslim converts to Christianity put to death.
Can Muslims who actually subscribe to Sharia Law ever actually assimilate to America?
Those who subscribe to Sharia Law (Islamic Law) believe those who do not convert to Islam must be put to death.
There is no such thing as religious freedom (or freedom of any kind) under Islam.
Sharia Law is incompatible with liberty — just as Nazism and Communism are incompatible with liberty and our Constitution.
Jesus Christ never told us to kill non-Christians — just try to convert them . . . through persuasion.
Islam believes in conversion through threat of the sword.
Hence Islam’s infatuation with beheading non-Muslims.
Jesus told us: “By their fruits we shall know them.”
The fruits of Islam have been poisonous.
Not much good has come from Islam. What scientific discoveries has Islam produced? What great works of art or literature? Who in their right mind would ever want to live in an Islamic country?
Every Islamic nation is an economic and human rights disaster.
With the exception of a few oil billionaires and sheiks, most people who live in these oil-rich Islamic countries live in abject poverty — on a sub-human level that makes the South Bronx look prosperous by comparison.
There is clearly something deeply barbaric about the Islamic religion — at least the pure Islamic religion.
The savage and ultra-violent nature of Islam presents a big problem for those (like Marco Rubio) who want a more relaxed path to U.S. Citizenship. We don’t need people here who hate America. We want people here who love America.
Hopefully, these jerks will get plenty of time in Leavenworth to think about this.
Is this Obama’s Abu Ghraib? Or is it still Bush’s fault?
A fascinating discussion in 2002 between Newt Gingrich and the recently departed Christopher Hitchens concerning the war on Islamic terror
This discussion, soon after the 9-11 attacks, between Newt Gingrich and the late Christopher Hitchens is fascinating on many levels.
Hitchens died from cancer last week.
Hitchens was a mixed bag — a staunch atheist and left-leaning on economic issues; but hawkish in the war on Islamic terror and pro-life. He was a terrific writer and extraordinarily articulate, whether you agreed with him or not.
I have had quite a few drinks with Christopher over the decades. He was very funny, intellectually honest, and a very good guy. We disagreed on about half the issues, and were in agreement on about half the issues.
Always worth listening to.
And, of course, Newt is always equally interesting.
So pour yourself a glass of wine, sit back, and enjoy this discussion.
This is why Western Civilization is better, much better. And it’s why we must defend Western Civilization against these sadistic savages.
GLOBAL POST: An analysis of video obtained by GlobalPost from a rebel fighter who recorded the moment when Col. Muammar Gaddafi was first captured confirms that another rebel fighter, whose identity is unknown, sodomized the former leader as he was being dragged from the drainpipe where he had taken cover.
A frame by frame analysis of this exclusive GlobalPost video clearly shows the rebel trying to insert some kind of stick or knife into Gaddafi’s rear end.
Notice how they are yelling “Allah Akbar!” while engaging in this barbarism. So they are doing this in the name of their sicko, bloodthirsty religion.
Here’s the frame by frame analysis of Gaddafi being sodomize with a stick or knife, probably a knife. Let’s hope these savages are tried for war crimes.
Also, do you remember how Hillary Clinton joked about this sadistic killing?: “We came, we saw, he died.”
Hillary thought this was just hilarious. Yes, Gaddafi was a brutal dictator who killed many. He deserved justice, possibly ultimimately death, after a trial. But what civilized person can possibly think this is humorous?
She should immediately apologize and resign as Secretary of State.
What a sickening embarrassment she is.
This is no foreign policy victory for the U.S.
It’s another victory for barbarism.
CNBC: Front-runner Rick Perry stumbled during the Republican presidential candidates’ debate on Thursday when asked what he would do if he got a 3 a.m. call alerting him that the Taliban had gotten nuclear weapons from Pakistan.
“Well obviously, before you ever get to that point you have to build a relationship in that region. That’s one of the things that this administration has not done,” the Texas governor replied at the debate in Orlando, Florida.
Perry made a reference to recent U.S. military accusations that Pakistan’s intelligence service was backing Afghanistan’s Haqqani insurgent group in carrying out attacks against U.S. targets, including the American Embassy in Afghanistan.
Then he talked about the importance of improving relations with India, Pakistan’s neighbor and nuclear rival.
“So to have a relationship with India, to make sure that India knows that they are an ally of the United States. For instance when we had the opportunity to sell India the upgraded F-16s, we chose not to do that … The point is, our allies need to understand clearly that we are their friends, we will be standing by there with them,” Perry replied.
“Today, we don’t have those allies in that region that can assist us if that situation that you talked about were to become a reality.”
The answer raised doubts about Perry’s foreign policy expertise in the region where the United States has been at war for a decade.
Candidate Rick Santorum, who has gained little traction in the race for the Republican nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012, said Perry had failed to answer the question about the Taliban obtaining nuclear weapons.
“Working with allies at that point is the last thing we want to do. We want to work in that country to make sure the problem is defused,” Santorum said.
CBS: The hopes for Palestinian statehood received a one-two punch at the
United Nations on Wednesday with President Barack Obama saying no to statehood without direct negotiations and the French president proposing a time table to restart the talks, giving the Israelis and Palestinians one year to reach an agreement.
“Peace will not come through statements and resolutions at the UN. If it were that easy, it would have been accomplished by now,” President Obama said.
Obama said in public what he is also saying in private — that a Palestinian state can only be achieved by the Israelis and Palestinians going to the bargaining table and tackling the hard questions that face them. But he stopped short of directly calling on the Palestinians to drop their plan to seek statehood recognition from the UN Security Council.
Palestinian Ambassasor to U.S. pledges that the new Palestinian state will be “Jew-free.”
DAILY CALLER: During a breakfast briefing hosted by the Christian Science Monitor on Tuesday, Palestinian Ambassador to the United States Maen Rashid Areikat reiterated his call to create a Jew-free Palestinian state.“Well, I personally still believe that as a first step we need to be totally separated, and we can contemplate these issues in the future,” he said when asked by The Daily Caller if he could imagine a Jew being elected mayor of the Palestinian city of Ramallah in a future independent Palestinian state. “But after the experience of 44 years of military occupation and all the conflict and friction, I think it will be in the best interests of the two peoples to be separated first.”
Last year, Areikat made a similar statement during an interview with Tablet magazine. Asked whether it would be neccessary to transfer and remove “every Jew” from a future Palestinian state, Areikat responded “absolutely.”
“I’m not saying to transfer every Jew, I’m saying transfer Jews who, after an agreement with Israel, fall under the jurisdiction of a Palestinian state,” he said then. “I think this is a very necessary step, before we can allow the two states to somehow develop their separate national identities, and then maybe open up the doors for all kinds of cultural, social, political, economic exchanges, that freedom of movement of both citizens of Israelis and Palestinians from one area to another. You know you have to think of the day after.”
Here’s what Glenn Beck says about this whole fiasco
BARACK OBAMA SPECH TO UN: “And friends of the Palestinians do them no favors by ignoring this truth, just as friends of Israel must recognize the need to pursue a two state solution with a secure Israel next to an independent Palestine,” President Obama said at the UN.
“That is the truth. Each side has legitimate aspirations – and that is what makes peace so hard. And the deadlock will only be broken when each side learns to stand in each other’s shoes. Each side can see the world through the other’s eyes. That’s what we should be encouraging.”
When this man got up to go to work that day, I’m sure he thought it was just like other day. He kissed his wife and kids goodbye, got his doughnut, coffee, and newspaper. He then got on the subway and went to his office in the World Trade Center, having no idea of the horror that awaited him in a matter of minutes.
This happened to 3,000 others who also thought this day would be a lot like every other work day.
ASSOCIATED PRESS: President Barack Obama is endorsing the Palestinians’ demand for their future state to be based on the borders that existed before the 1967 Middle East war, in a move that will likely infuriate Israel. Israel says the borders of a Palestinian state have to be determined through negotiations.
In a speech outlining U.S. policy in the Middle East and North Africa, Obama on Thursday sided with the Palestinians’ opening position a day ahead of a visit to Washington by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Netanyahu is vehemently opposed to referring to the 1967 borders.
Netanyahu rejects withdrawal to ‘indefensible’ 1967 borders
THE REPUBLIC: Israel’s prime minister on Thursday gave a cool reception to President Barack Obama’s Mideast policy speech, warning a withdrawal from the West Bank wold leave Israel vulnerable to attack and setting up what could be a tense meeting at the White House.
In his speech, Obama endorsed the Palestinian position on the borders of their future state, saying it should be based on Israel’s lines before the 1967 Mideast war. Israel captured the West Bank, east Jerusalem and Gaza Strip in the fighting, and the Palestinians claim those areas for their state.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas planned to convene a meeting with senior officials as soon as possible to decide on the next steps, said Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat.
Knesset Member: Obama is the new Arafat
JERUSALEM POST: “Barack Hussein Obama adopted the staged plan for Israel’s destruction of Yasser Arafat, and he is trying to force it on our prime minister,” said Likud MK Danny Danon. “All that was new in the speech was that he called for Israel to return to 1967 borders without solving the crisis. Netanyahu has only one option: To tell Obama forget about it.”
National Union MK Michael Ben-Ari also slammed Obama’s speech, calling it “a landmine with pretty wrapping.”
Environment Minister Gilad Erdan, who as a minister close to Netanyahu must be more diplomatic, complained on Channel 2 that according to Obama’s approach, the Palestinians would receive their demands on borders before negotiations begin.
“Once they have everything from the start, they have no reason to make any concessions,”Erdan said.
But opposition leader Tzipi Livni said Obama’s plan was clearly in Israel’s interests, while the diplomatic stalemate that she believes was brought on by Netanyahu is not.
“On his visit, Netanyahu must display the leadership necessary now to create the conditions necessary to restart negotiations with those who are ready to end the conflict,” Livni said. “Only a real Israeli initiative with content that can receive American and international support can be an answer to the current dangers and opportunities.”
Nice people, these Taliban and jihadists. How could any sane person what to be part of this movement?
U.K. TELEGRAPH: Police seized a nine-year-old and three others aged between 12 and 14 as they tried to cross into eastern Afghanistan.
A spokesman for the Afghan intelligence agency said the boy is believed to be the youngest suicide bomber ever intercepted, though children as young as five have been used to plant bombs in Helmand.
The use of child suicide bombers to target Nato troops, government officials and those working with Hamid Karzai’s government has been an insurgent tactic for several years, he said, but had increased recently.
