When listing the world’s most notorious terrorist organizations, why is it that Al-Qaeda, ISIS and Boko Haram so quickly spring to mind, while Hezbollah is frequently forgotten? In this video, Tony Badran, Research Fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, explains how the backing of Iran has served to legitimize Hezbollah on the world stage, while simultaneously making the group all the more dangerous.
Barack Obama has left a trail of ruin and misery in his eight year wake. From the collapsing Obamacare to his capitulation to the terrorist regime of Iran, to the abdication of world leadership to Russia and China, Obama and the postmodern Democrats seem intent on only one mission: to turn America into an iron-fisted regulatory state run by weaponized bureaucrats.
Michael J. Totten one of the finest foreign correspondents in the world has penned a superb memo regarding foreign policy to whomever wins the 2016 Presidential election.
I agree with most everything Totten writes except when he claims that it’s too late to turn back the deal with Iran. In fact, there is no deal with Iran beyond Obama’s secret executive agreements. No written treaty exists between America and Iran except in the fevered imagination of Democrat loyalists who prefer the warm embrace of delusion over cold reality.
Dear President-Elect, the world is beset by a constellation of problems – international terrorism, rogue states, and a renascent expansionist Russia. You will not be able to democratize the Middle East or diplomatically “engage” your way with the Vladimir Putins and Ali Khameneis of the world. These are problems to be managed rather than solved. At least the Israelis, who have become masters of this art, can commiserate with your unenviable role.
The current spilling of Jewish blood by pious Muslims is, of course, incited by the PA, Hamas, Hizbullah, Islamic State, etc., through the false claim that Israel is set on changing the status quo on the Temple Mount. Of course, Israel is doing no such thing.
But think about it for a moment. Muslims are murdering Jews because they believe that Israel is seeking to legitimize the right of Jews to pray on the Temple Mount.
This murderous intolerance should outrage every decent American — Democrat and Republican.
At the National Prayer Breakfast yesterday, Barack Obama warned that we should not “get on our high horse” over the immolation of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot 1st Lt. Muadh al-Kasasbeh because Christians used to burn people too.
It shocking and reprehensible that two days after Islamic terrorists burn a man alive, the President of the United States sternly lectures the American people about the 800-year-old Inquisition.
There have been over 25,000 Muslim acts of terror since 9-11. There is a cancer in the house of Islam. If you deny this, you deny reality. And if you deny reality, you are all but surrendering to bloodthirsty Islamic terrorists.
Obama’s depraved moral calculus is that of an adolescent who’s been blowing dope and experiencing, y’know, like, deep thoughts.
Those who draw a moral equivalence between ancient Christianity and contemporary Islamists should be shunned by responsible adults.
Decent people whose moral compass is intact will mount a high horse — and stay there.
A few pictures to alleviate the gathering darkness.
