It's coming hard and fast on many fronts now... the virulent anti-Semitism that is rooted not only among Muslims, but society at large.
Six Jewish women were shot down by a raving, whackjob anti-Semite... a Pakistani-American born in the U.S. Much will be made of his mental state or lack thereof, and authorities are are nodding their heads that this was indeed a "hate crime."
The oh so liberal residents of Seattle will blame his parents, racism, call for stricter gun control laws and in the process, ignore the real driving force of the murderous rampage... Jew hatred.
I call it terrorism. Terrorism is a tactic and the assault on Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle by Naveed Haq, 30, that killed Pamela Waechter was terroristic. It doesn't have to be organized or on the direct order of OBL to be terrorism... just ask the five wounded women who survived..
Pamela will be buried today; may her memory be a blessing.
The killing occurred right smack dab in the middle of Baghdad Jim McDermott's socialist congressional district.
Yesterday, House of Representatives Resolution 921 which condemned "the recent attacks against the State of Israel, holding terrorists and their state-sponsors accountable for such attacks, supporting Israel's right to defend itself, and for other purposes" passed 410 to 8.
McDermott lead the Coalition of the Gutless in voting not to support Israel or condemn Hezbollah, the other six democrats were Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii), John Conyers (D-Michigan), John Dingell (D-Michigan), James McDermott (D-Washington), Fortney "Pete" Stark (D-California), Carolyn Kilpatrick (D-Michigan), and Nick Rahall (D-West Virginia).
The lone Republican idiot was Ron Paul (R-Texas).
Lunatics, regardless of political persuasion, can always find a way to set aside differences when it comes to hating Jews.Christopher Chantrill over at American Thinker has a great take on how it all comes together in the Left Coast Progressive Co-Prosperity Sphere that is Washington state.
President Bush needs to shut up about a "sustainable peace" in the Middle East. As long as one IslamoNazi survives there will never be peace; what he should be talking about is girding our collective Juedo-Christian loins for the battle to come... whether or not he wants it or sees it rumbling toward us.
Secretary of Sate Condolessa Rice needs to stay out of Lebanon. Why give Hezbollah's sock puppet, Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, the opportunity to tell her not to come unless she brings a complete ceasefire. America doesn't listen to, let alone pay attention to Quislings.
Thank gawd Bush doesn't give a damn about the Nobel Socialist Peace Prize (not that he'd get it even if he brought world peace single-handedly surrounded by an angelic chorus); like Jimmah Carter was after he campaigned 20 years for the bit of bling. Of course his perfect record of being anti-Israel helped a great deal. What does that tell us about praise from the left?
Events of the last few days have given me pause about Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's resolve regarding the attack on Hezbollah. Great pressure is being brought to bear by Bush. If Israel does not complete the task at hand... the 12,000 missiles will quickly become 25,000.
Binyamin Netanyahu former prime minister and leader of the opposition Likud Party, said just on Limbaugh's show that "Iran has declared a second Holocaust (against Israel). If we do not neutralize Hezbollah, there will be no peace for Lebanon, no peace for Israel... no peace for anyone."
Netanyahu seemed to be reminding Olmert of his statements early on as Israel attacked Hezbollah positions, "the goal is to eliminate Hezbollah by whatever means necessary."
"We," he told Limbaugh, "are just the first target; we're the small Satan, you're the big Satan...and Europe is the middle-sized Satan."
Netanyahu, former Israeli Sayeret Matkal team leader, knows of what he speaks... "The more power you use," said , "the less time you need."
I've heard all I need to know about Mel Gibson. Much will be made of his mental state and his alcohol-fueled rage at all ''the f*****g Jews". What this man has lost is a presumption of innocence regarding the question of his deepest feelings. I'll paraphrase a Hebrew saying I just heard from Dennis Prager which observes that you can judge a man by what he does with his money, his anger and what he says when in his cups. Still, Prager, a decent man and observant Jew, called for penitence from Jews and Christians on Gibson's behalf.
Yet, no one can blame any Jew for deciding that Gibson is a an anti-Semite... just without a gun. I am somewhere in the middle... at the minimum, Gibson's stock with me has fallen beyond reclamation.
