Act for Israel

 

screen-shot-2017-03-04-at-9-33-38-am

1. Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud, FL) sure does love Israel. He really loves Israel.  This former legal advisor to Seal Team 6 and haunter of the Joint Task Force in GTMO – and lover of GTMO as far as I can tell, but he loves Israel even more – but I am already digressing.

Okay, where was I?

Yes, this lover of Israel and frequent defender of Israel is doing something right now, and I mean literally right fucking now (RFN) that I want to get to. In a minute.

First let me tell you about the letter he wrote to Trump using his own US Israeli Congressional stationary, telling President to be Trump that he had damn fucking well better move the US Israeli embassy to Jerusalem. You can read the whole letter here on Desantis’ website. Please do note that DeSantis initiated the letter and then got 101 other Israel-suck ups to sign it. Here is an excerpt: (Note to Shas Party members, red-highlighting is done by today’s guest editor Ron Desantis:)

“During your campaign, you made a forceful pledge to move our American (sic) embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which is the eternal capital of the Jewish people and the State of Israel.”

Hmmm. Let me digress. Since when do we pay for government officials to engage in metaphysics talking about the eternalness of anything? And if it is the capital of all Jews, then does DeSantis think that Jews should be loyal to Israel first – as he is even though he is not a Jew?

Anyway, the letter continues:

We write to express support for this policy and to urge you to take swift action to relocate our (sic) embassy to Jerusalem as soon as you take office. 

Israel is one of the United States’ closest allies and stands alone in the Middle East for its commitment to democratic ideals. Moving the embassy will strenghtn the unique alliance between Israel and the United States and send a clear message to the world that we support Israel in recognizing Jerusalem as its eternal capital.

You can read the whole letter here and see if your congressional rep was one of the signatories.

Not long after that letter was written DeSantis brought up the issue again in this really weird press release.

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (Likud-06), Chairman of the National Security Subcommittee, today convened an Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security. Its membership of advisors from Florida and around the country will explore ways to repair U.S.–Israel relations and combat security threats facing Israel and the United States.

“With the pending relocation of our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and the arrival of the Trump administration, we have entered a new era in American-Israeli relations and have a great opportunity to chart a productive course,” DeSantis said. “My subcommittee conducts oversight over embassy issues and I have been active in highlighting the dangers of the BDS movement and the threat posed by militant Islam. I have no doubt that we will have a lot on our plate moving forward, and having an esteemed group of advisors willing to share their keen insights on these issues will be a great help to me. I thank them for their willingness to assist my efforts to support our friend and ally Israel.”

Nice how he got in the phrase “militant Islam” isn’t it. And of course the anti-BDS theme is there  too along with the let’s move the US embassy to Jerusalem verbiage.

And just to make sure we get the point, the document ends with this:

The Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security will help develop policies to help facilitate a more productive American posture in the Middle East, which includes moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Israel’s capital, Jerusalem.

The Adisory Council is a pretty damn long list. Funny how the House’s National Security Subcommittee is in need of an “Advisory Council for Israel and Middle East Security” at all, and second that that council needs to be comprised of only people from Florida with Middle Eastern sounding names. Clearly a bunch of militant Islamists  have taken over the advisory council.

Okay, I can hear you all bitching and moaning “Mantiq, look he has to be this way, he’s in Florida and there you have to be anti-Castro and pro-Israel, though not necessarily in that. order. It’s not like he is advocating that Israel keep the Golan Heights.”

Washington, DC – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement of support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s position that the Golan Heights will remain under the control of Israel:

“For almost 50 years, Israel has maintained peace in the Golan Heights region and I support Prime Minister Netanyahu’s position that Israel should maintain control. If Israel were to cede the Golan Heights the area would become a magnet for terrorism and would give Israel’s enemies a launching pad from which to wage war against the Jewish state.  U.S. policy should support the Prime Minister’s position and recognize the Golan Heights as a part of Israel.”

Now you won’t find this on his website, or on his twitter feed, but Ronny boy is at this very minute on an official National Security Subcommittee-sponsored trip  to Jerusalem to investigate moving the US embassy to Jerusalem. It’s a short trip, just 24 hours and Desantis and his committee seem to be very quiet about it. But when he gets back he’ll continue to put the pressure on Trump.

Please let him know how much you appreciate his working for Israel. Go here:

https://desantis.house.gov/media-center

and you can look in the upper right hand corner for links to his social media sites.

Interesting enough, Rep.  Dennis Ross (Israel Home, Fl), who is reported to also be going on the trip is said to have denied that he is going according to this Press TV link.

2. Okay it is video time. Watch this unbelievable suck up to Israel. Can there be a bigger whore than this guy? Probably, but he does set the bar pretty high. Please make sure there are no children in the room when you watch this.

ِTime for a make up call.

 

Have you registered a Muslim today?

1.A number of the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr working hand in hand with Vladimir Putin managed to hack into the Trump campaign files and we found the questionnaire Israel is putting together for Muslim registry 2.0. We downloaded the file, changed some of the answers, added a question or two, uploaded it to the same place and replaced the old file. The new version is below for you to go ahead and fill out.  You can then just send it to the Israeli embassy in Washington, DC, or you can wait and send it to the “American” embassy in Jersualem c/o David Friedman.

2. Friedman and Greenblatt’s position paper on Israel.  To buy this horrible thing you have to completely close your eyes to reality.

Just one highlight.  Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Ibn Mulaikah.

“The U.S. should view the effort to boycott, divest from, and sanction (BDS) Israel as inherently anti-Semitic and take strong measures, both diplomatic and legislative, to thwart actions that are intended to limit commercial relations with Israel, or persons or entities doing business in Israeli areas, in a discriminatory manner. The BDS movement is just another attempt by the Palestinians to avoid having to commit to a peaceful co-existence with Israel. The false notion that Israel is an occupier should be rejected.

3. Well it’s video time. Not sure what to do here.  How about 3 minutes and 22 seconds of insanity from a Navy Seal turned Tea Party speaker about the Communist and Muslim menace? It is one of the more disgusting things I’ve seen and unfortunately due to the nature of the blogging I have to see lots of disgusting things.  Tell you what, I’ll just give you the link to the Loon Watch article about this guy and that article also has the video and you can watch it if you want to make yourself sick.

http://www.loonwatch.com/2014/01/former-navy-seal-ben-smith-obama-is-a-muslim-drops-quran-to-the-ground/

Hmmmm. I can hear you all saying “Mantiq, that was disgusting, please give us something uplifting and do it fast.”

Okay.  Each year at this time I link to this video. Even if you have seen it before, you will enjoy it. The music is lovely too. I also love the default start frame of this video. Reminds me of two who are very dear, but I digress.

 

 

 

It’s Going To Get Much Worse . . .

 

great-f

“This study is the result of months of analysis, discussion and drafting by a group of top security policy experts concerned with the preeminent totalitarian threat of our time: the legal-political-military doctrine known within Islam as shariah.”

1. Former CIA director, eternal Israel-firster, hater of Muslims, co-author of the document from which the quote above comes, and naturally a Donald Trump advisor, James Woosely, was interviewed on CBC yesterday.  The very first thing he said was that the US needs to get back to sucking up to Israel – as if that had actually been stopped in any real way.  (Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Jesus Christ.) 

Carol Off: What might you recommend to Mr. Trump to take on as a priority?

James Woolsey: Well, I think one of the first priorities is to get straight who our friends and our adversaries are. And I think President Obama got that mixed up.

I think it’s important, for example, to let the world know that Israel is our friend and Iran is not a country that we have a nice, sound nuclear agreement with.

It’s a country which we have signed, in my opinion, the worst international accord the United States has ever signed and Iran will be a nuclear power within a relatively few years and we’re going to have to figure out how to deal with that.

Yup, Israel is his first priority.  Jesus Christ. Oops sorry Jesus.  

Now I can hear you all saying – “Hey there Mantiq, he didn’t say that Trump would cancel the agreement with Iran, so isn’t that good?”

Who the fuck knows.  He did add in the interview that “This agreement has to go.”  I’m sure you will also find the following quote from him about Iran utterly reassuring. 

CO: So if you’re shaking that foreign policy stick, in which directions and which countries might you think Mr. Trump should shake it?

JW: Iran needs to be kept from being the world’s leading terrorist state. We need to move them back several places in that ranking by undermining their terrorist affiliations and actions and financing and all the rest and some of that can be done overtly and some of it needs to be done covertly. I think Iran is one of the greatest dangers to world peace.

The US is bombing seven countries at present and Iran is the greatest threat to world peace? Carol Off should have just fucking hung up the phone. But I digress.

Keep in mind that this person has co-authored a book with the utterly ridiculous title of  “Shariah: The Threat to America” which even the FBI thinks is bullshit

Actually it isn’t a book.  It is a “report” written by, and I am not making this up:

“Team B II” of the right-wing conspiracy oriented Center for Security Policy.  The members of the team read like a list of who’s who in the land of Muslim hating.  Here are some of the members of Team B II.

Jerry Boykin 

Stephen Coughlin

Frank Gaffney

John Guandolo

David Yershalmi

Plus many more utter nut cases.

Will Woosely be but in a position to persecute Muslims in the Trump administration (and I use the term administration quite loosely)?

CO: Would you accept a position if he offered as the national security adviser?

JW: This is an extremely important set of jobs. And I’m not going to get in here and campaign for one. But anybody who is offered something along the lines of one of the two or four top jobs in the government dealing with foreign policy and national security, would have to be honoured.

So this war mongering Israel-firster could become the National Security Advisor.  Mike Flynn, a sitting board member of the astonishingly bigoted Act for America outfit might also be in the new administration.  This article mentions he could become Defense Secretary or the National Security Advisor.  I’m sure he and Woosely would be delighted to work together. The same report mentions that Reince Priebus could have a job in that administration.  Here is Priebus demonstrating his allegiance to Israel. 

“The truth is, America’s security interests are intertwined with Israel’s, and when President Obama does a disservice to Israel, he does a disservice to our country as well.”

It is going to get much worse, with Zionism it always does. 

2. Well it’s video time.  Here is a very recent message from Trump to Israel.  Note to Shas Party members, not only is it short you will like it very much. Very much. 

A Kiss With a Spell?

hillary(Hillary kissing Suha Arafat and really pissing off tons of assholes)

1. As usual, Zionism has both wings of the Demopub party firmly under its control.   This probably explains also why Hillary Clinton isn’t in jail for the email scandal and appears to be on some sort of mental and physical health life-support system. 

In the meantime the person who will probably win the election is shouting loud and clear that Israel will be “destroyed” unless he is elected president.  You know, if that were actually true then maybe we here at Mantiq al-Tayr might actually vote for Hillary.  But I digress.  (We’ll get back to Hillary in a minute.)

Yes, unless you elect Donald Trump president Israel will be destroyed by Iran.  Trump’s Iran-bashing and fear mongering is worthy of any candidate who has ever run for the position of Israel’s Vice President for American Affairs.  

Here’s a nice quote from the article in Hahahaharetz: (Note to Shas Party members and Trump supporters, red highlighting is being done by someone who will be indicated further below, keep reading.)

Last year’s deal, which trades sanctions relief for a nuclear rollback, “is going to destroy Israel – unless I get elected,” Trump told Cleveland-area labor leaders on Monday, according to The Columbus Dispatch. “Then Israel will be just fine.”

Now the bat-shit crazy (I love that term, a friend of mine uses it to describe someone in my former work environment every chance she gets and for good reason, but I digress) former DIA chief and current advisor to Trump, Mike Flynn – who is now a board member of the also bat-shit crazy and viciously anti-Muslim “Act for America” outfit – was at this meeting. According to Hahahaharetz he asked Trump what he would do about the deal.  Trump didn’t say he would cancel it (we thank Khoda for that) but he did describe it  in ways that no doubt Act for America would approve. 

But let’s get back to Hillary.  Right now she’s got the backing of tons of Zionist evil-doers of just about every stripe – and star.  And goy does she say the right things about how fucking wonderful Israel is and how it is better than a gefilte-fish pizza on matzah bread with a stinking load of Israeli hummus on top. 

But deep down inside I suspect she actually can’t stand Israel.  How’s this quote from 1998?

“I think that it will be in the long-term interest of the Middle East for Palestine to be a state, to be a state that is responsible for its citizens’ well-being, a state that has responsibility for providing education and health care and economic opportunity to its citizens,” she said, responding to a question about why she had referred to “Palestine,” a country that does not yet exist.”

The article goes on to mention this event: ((Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is being done by today’s bat-shit crazy guest editor my friend likes to talk about.)

“The next year, Clinton again raised eyebrows during a trip to the Middle East. She attended a speech at which Suha Arafat, the wife of Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, accused Israel of using poisonous gas against Palestinians. Despite the controversial remarks, Clinton kissed Suha on the cheek, as is customary in the region.”

I remember those days when she was doing stuff like that. Mike Piper used to say that this was tantamount to “pulling out a switchblade in the middle of a fist fight” because at the time her hubby was really taking in on the chin.  

And she sure got criticized by all of the likely suspects as the article I’ve linked to points out. It’s well worth reading to review her ability to hold one position one day and its polar opposite the next.  A very American trait which she shares with many other members of our political prostitute class. 

But here’s what I find interesting about all of this. That email scandal that we all know about – and for which (and no doubt for many other things) she should be in jail – that scandal in and of itself does not seem to bother her legion of Israel-firster supporters.  This is no surprise since US security means nothing to them at all outside of Zionism’s ability to use America as a host for its parasitic ambitions. No, what seems to bother them is that in those emails she reveals yet again her affinity with a well-known and extremely well-connected Jewish journalist whom Shmuely Boteach really really does not like, not at all.  Not even just a teensy weensy tiny fucking bit. And frankly, if Boteach does not like you, then you must be doing something right, but I digress. Boteach doesn’t like this person’s daddy very much either. 

BTW, Boteach has a son who serves in the IDF. But I digress.

The daddy in this case is Sidney Blumenthal who has been out of government for many years and who is not supposed to have access to classified  information.  However, this fact, according to this report, appears not to have prevented him from lifting verbatim from highly classified intelligence reports and emailing this stuff to Hillary on an unclassified system. But once again I digress.

And of course Boteach was really pissed off about this.  Well, actually I haven’t seen him write about it at all.  What we know did piss him off is that Blumenthal senior, when not sending Hillary classified information that he should  not have access to, often sent Hillary links to articles by his son Max and that Hillary replied to those emails showing her appreciation for Max’s journalistic talents.  Boteach’s problem with this is that Max is very often very critical of the only thing in the world that really matters. Israel.  Boteach is bat-shit crazy for Israel and bat-shit pissed at Max whom he accuses of “rabid anti-Semitism”.

So, we have a racist billionaire who spouts the most vile Israeli propaganda but who is not so popular with most of the Zioinist neocons whose insanity he supports running against a bat-shit sick woman who should be in jail and who is supported by left-wing and right-wing Zionist billionaires and millionaires many of whom suspect that deep down inside she can’t stand them.

What a fucking mess. 

And it will get worse, with Zionism it always does. 

2. Okay it is already video time.  Here’s Boteach praising Trump and ranting about Max Blumenthal and generally just foaming at the mouth about everything.  Even the slimy Boteach has had to backtrack a bit on the Trump worship because Boteach – surprise surprise – supports immigration to the US and doesn’t want to be seen as hating people of Latino origin.  Nonetheless this video is a scream.   I love how he cares so much for the Syrian population.  He also makes it clear that he “will support the best candidate for Israel.”  That pretty much sums up what’s going on folks – and not just with Boteach. 

 

And here’s Coughlan again. Not always the best taste but worth a good listen. 

A kiss with a spell? (And yes, we here at Mantiq al-Tayr happen to like Tom Delonge.)

 

CVE and the Violent Jewish Extremist Vote

 

Revolution

Screen shot from this interview.

1. ”In fact, most Muslims suspect they were set up only to make Muslims look bad,” Hooper said. ”We just have very deep suspicions. They say such outrageous, irresponsible things that it almost seems like they’re doing it to smear Islam.”

CVE.  Probably most of you have never heard of it.  It stands for “Countering Violent Extremism” but in practice it means “Fucking with Muslims for Money.”  It’s become quite an industry – sort of main stream Islamophobia-light –  and it is filled with more carpetbaggers in and outside of government – many  of them move seamlessly between government jobs and jobs for universities or corporations – per square foot than was Atlanta in 1866. The CVE world is abuzz this week.

Let me ask you something:

What would an organization whose board members include Richard Allen (of Iran-Contra fame), Cofer Black (who somehow managed to fuck up stopping the 9/11 attacks and then did such great work with Blackwater), Edwin Meese III (yes, that Edwin Meese, of Wedtech and also of Iran-Contra fame), Michael Chertoff (the guy who loves to have your genitalia radiated at airports, co-authored the Patriot Act and succeeded Tom Ridge as head of Fatherland Security) and big pro-Israel investor Tom Ridge (and the first head of Fatherland Security) be expected to do?  Well, maybe that’s an unfair question, because there are so many horrible choices they could make and since these guys probably don’t get to  into the weeds anyway.  But still.   Well, that organization has just hired Joseph Leonard Cohen’s partner in crime, Jesse Morton, (pictured above) to join its research staff at George Washington University’s Center for Cyber and Homeland Security.  Btw, for those who are unaware, Cyber is another big thing in government and the private sector at present.  The feds and the corporations are psycho for cyber these days as they drain your pockets in the name of “Homeland Security.”  If you see “Cyber” in some outfit’s title, beware. But I digress.

Morton is now the darling of the media.  This interview with the CBC is a perfect example.

Ibrahim Cooper’s quote above was about Morton and his nutty “Revolution Muslim” website which appealed to about 12.3 people on the planet but which nonetheless managed to get considerable attention from CNN and of course from CVE specialists while making Muslims look absolutely bat shit crazy. One of those CVE dudes who actually did a study of the website is now Morton’s boss.

Cooper may be wrong regarding what he implied, but good grief.  And now one of these Muslim Revolution guys is at GW, having gone from making Islam look ridiculous from the inside to now financially benefitting off his past while sustaining Islamophobia-light’s obsession with “radicalization.” Now according to this article he won’t be teaching but will be doing “research.”   His page on the Cyber thingy’s website is worth a look at.

More on this stuff at a later date.  Please play around on the Cyber thingy’s website and look at who is there.  There is definitely money to be made if you believe in the religion of radicalization – radicalization which pretty much applies only to Muslims.  Funny how that is.

2. In the meantime, Donald Trump, Islamophobe par excellence, continues to suck up to Israel.  He is fresh from a 25K per plate dinner fund raiser run by an Islamofascist named Saul Fox. According to what is most likely the target of every intelligence agency on the planet, The Intercept:

(Note to Shas party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Haifa Wehbe).

Fox is the donor behind Children of Israel LLC, whose $884,000 in contributions has made it the second-most generous “ghost corporation” in the 2016 cycle. This election has seen a surge in “ghost corporations,” the term used for businesses that appear to exist solely to shield the identity of individuals who want to put money into the U.S. political process.”

Saul loves Israel and he is really into archeology.  Here is his dedication speech for the Archeological Garden of Knesset.  Note the pronouns.

“My family feels extraordinarily fortunate to have been asked by the Israel Antiquities Authority to assist in a small way with the construction of this magnificent archeological garden, truly an un-walled museum, exemplifying the history of the land of Israel, here in the very midst of Jerusalem, our sacred ancient capital and the holiest of cities, affixed to the Knesset the most significant Jewish edifice of our era where we, the children of Israel, having returned from compelled dispersion to liberate and resettle the Promised Land and having reestablished Israel as a nation among the nations, through prodigious and arduous efforts and sacrifice, democratically and righteously govern our own affairs.”

But I digress.

Saul is loaded, he’s hard-core for Israel, considers himself one of the “children of Israel,” created a ghost corporation called Children of Israel, LLC and he is backing Trump – the guy who used to say he didn’t need money from rich Jews.

In the meantime Trump has quite a campaign team in Israel.  It turns out that there are between 200,000 and 300,000 Jewish votes there that he is trying to get and according to this article about 70 per cent of them vote center and right, so they might be helpful in making Trump the next IVPFAA.  And his campaign team seems to be entirely composed of right wingers.

One of them is: “Tzvika Brot, the newly appointed director of the Republican Party campaign team in Israel, is a former journalist with close ties to the right-wing Likud party.”

But of course.  And I love this:

Because many American citizens live in the Jewish settlements, he (Brot) said, the upcoming opening of the Trump campaign office in Ginot Shomron would be an important event. “We will have a special guest there,” he promised. “I can’t say who it will be, but it won’t be Trump.”

Funny how it is that “many American citizens” live in illegal settlements.  I’ve seen these people running around with their machine guns and intimidating the hell out of the local Palestinian population.

Ginot Shomron is in the West Bank.  It is an illegal Israeli settlement.  The Trump campaign is sending someone to an illegal settlement to get Americans who are in violation of international  law to rally behind Trump and to vote for him.  Seems to me that the whole lot of them should be arrested and sent to the ICC where they can compare notes with Hillary, but I digress.

It’s a goddamn shame that GWU Cyber and Homeland Security seems to have no interest in Countering Violent Jewish Extremism.  But Trump and the Republicans (and no doubt Hillary and the Dems) want that violent Jewish extremist vote.

3. Okay, it’s video time.

Let’s start off with Haifa.  It’s in London, wonder if Yasir al-Habib was there. 🙂

This second video is worth sitting back and listening to.  Really.    I’ve just come across this person’s youtube videos – he even has one that deals in part with Revolution Muslim and also Adam Gadahn that is worth a listen as well.  In the video below he talks about two assholes who really do need to be counter radicalized.

Former DIA Head Joins Anti-Muslim Hate Group

 

Act for America

(The screen shot above is from ACT For America’s issues page.)

1. Philip Giraldi ended an article the other day with the following: (Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor Mulaykah al-Almaniyya):

“I regularly talk to a number of former intelligence agency colleagues, many of whom do not like Trump and will not vote for him, but I do not detect much concern over providing him with classified briefings on international developments. Nearly everyone assumes that he is a patriotic American and will protect what is shared with him. The angst over the Trump briefing appears to be contrived, coming mostly from the media and the chattering class. Indeed, I hear much more anger from former colleagues over the Hillary Clinton email scandal because with all her vaunted experience she should and must have known better, and chose to disregard the rules anyway. Many of us believe she ought to be in jail. In any event, both candidates will receive their briefings and one hopes that a better understanding of some developments in the world will prove beneficial to them, possibly making them think twice about some of the ill-advised policies that they have been promoting.”

You can add my name to the list of those who think she should be in jail just for the email scandal alone. 

Giraldi also recently was one of several writers making fun of Michael Morell – an asshole of truly magnificent proportions. 

Former CIA Acting Director Michael Morell has written a New York Times op-ed entitled “I Ran the CIA. Now I’m endorsing Hillary Clinton.” Morell’s story begins with the flat assertion that “Mrs. Clinton is highly qualified to be commander in chief. I trust she will deliver on the most important duty of a president – keeping our nation safe…Donald J. Trump is not only unqualified for the job, but he may well pose a threat to our national security.”

We here at Mantiq al-Tayr believe the Morell may as well have said “I ran the most vile evil organization on the planet, outside of the state of Israel, and I support Hillary Clinton. In fact, even Israel supports Hillary Clinton. And if you think the past sixteen years of constant war have been great, well hell it is going to get even better.”

I am surprised as hell that no one has written any satire about Morell’s article. 

Ooops.  Somebody did.  It’s pretty good too. 

It’s called “I STACKED DETAINEES INTO HUMAN PYRAMIDS, NOW I’M ENDORSING HILLARY CLINTON

For example:

“A little more than twelve years ago, I served in the United States military at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. I helped stack detainees into human pyramids, and had the opportunity to ride a few of them around like they were donkeys. We even made a giant dart board and catapulted detainees at the board, as we competed to see who could get the highest score.”

And:

I am fully behind her when she beats the drums of war and declares, “We need to take out their strongholds in Iraq and Syria by intensifying the air campaign and stepping up our support for Arab and Kurdish forces on the ground.” (Note:  She sounds a lot like Mike Flynn, see below.)

And:

“Given my past involvement with taking naked detainees and stacking them on each other, it is my belief that she understands soldiers experience tough situations every day.”

2. The worthless assholes who run our intelligence and foreign policy establishments are beneath and beyond contempt but even worse their interests are counter to the interests of anyone who isn’t part of the National Security State.  All they want is war, lots of you it, and they want to fight it and pay for it.  And fuck you if you want health insurance or a decent pension.  I mean fuck you. 

Let’s take a look at what Mike Flynn has had to say about war.  Remember him?  He’s the guy who used to run DIA and who is said to have been damn near Trump’s choice to be able to listen to bullshit from Walid Phares, but I digress.  Oh, and Flynn is hardly the worst of the lot.  He’s said to be one of the better ones and he really sucks.  Really. 

Let’s go with this quote from Spiegel Online: (Note to Shas party members, oh hell, never mind.)

“The overall strategy must be to take away Islamic State’s territory, then bring security and stability to facilitate the return of the refugees. This won’t be possible quickly. First, we need to hunt down and eliminate the complete leadership of IS, break apart their networks, stop their financing operations and stay until a sense of normality has been established. It’s certainly not a question of months — it will take years. Just look back at the mission we created in the Balkans as a model. We started there in the early 1990s to create some stability and we are still there today.”

Don’t you just love the “it will take years” quote. The National Security State will be sucking on your taxing paying boobies forever. And this quote comes from one of the very few clods in the establishment who  says that invading Iraq was wrong. But note the language he uses:

“It was (a) huge error. As brutal as Saddam Hussein was, it was a mistake to just eliminate him. The same is true for Moammar Gadhafi and for Libya, which is now a failed state. The historic lesson is that it was a strategic failure to go into Iraq. History will not be and should not be kind with that decision.”

It was not an “error” nor a “mistake” and it sure as hell was not a “strategic failure.” It was a deliberate effort to rape the country and turn it into a complete mess so that it could never be a threat to Israel.  It was a tremendous success and many many many many people in the National Security State made a hell of a lot of money out of it.  And they still are.  ISIS came right out of this and the intelligence community probably loves ISIS and needs ISIS and they sure as hell do have have ISIS and Flynn wants to spend “years” fighting ISIS which just happens to be in Iraq, the same place he claimed it was an “error” to invade (and utterly destroy).  But it is okay to do it now. You can’t make this shit up. 

He co-authored a book, which is he is now out actively marketing, with the notorious Michael Ledeen. Ledeen observes in this piece:

“Americans have long been unique in believing that peace is the normal condition of mankind.  The opposite is true.  Most of human history, including our own, is the story of war, the consequences of wars, and preparations for war.”

And Ledeen likes this.  He goes on to write:

“We are now returning to a more violent normalcy, where peace is rare and stability most unlikely.” 

So yes, Flynn is now writing with the notorious Islamophobe Israel-firster Ledeen and Flynn is supposed to be one of the better guys.  Holy shit.

And of course he is a huge Islamophobe, though he would deny it.  Here he writes like he’s Ledeen or Walid Phares:

“I describe Islam as a political ideology,” he said. “In this country it masks itself behind its religion.” 

So you all Mooooselims working in government, have fun when people who think like this are running things. Pence, as bad as he is, used to say some not so bad things about Islam. Of course good old Walid Phares will no doubt be in the White House with direct access to President Trump. Oh, and quite likely he’ll be reading the exact same types of intel that Hillary used to have on her private server. But I digress. 

How would this sound?  “I describe Judaism as a political ideology.  In this country it masks itself behind its religion.”  Just asking. 

3.  Act For America is a well-known anti-Muslim hate group founded by the truly insane Brigitte Gabriel who has appeared on these pages in the past. According to the publication in DC called “The Hill” Gabriel has taught DoD employees about Islam.  According to that publication (which seems to be using the Southern Poverty Law Center as its source) she said while doing so:

“If a Muslim who has — who is — a practicing Muslim who believes the word of the Koran to be the word of Allah, who abides by Islam, who goes to mosque and prays every Friday, who prays five times a day — this practicing Muslim, who believes in the teachings of the Koran, cannot be a loyal citizen to the United States of America.”

The Hill also notes: 

“ACT for America, which boasts more than 800 chapters and 279,000 members, says it wants to stop a “creeping” threat that exists from the mere presence of Muslims in American society and from the “political correctness” that makes room for them. That’s the same message that’s expected to be carried into ACT’s annual National Conference and Legislative Briefing on Capitol Hill.”

That’s a lot of members, members who no doubt will want to buy his book he wrote with Ledeen.

And folks that is just the tip of the iceberg.  For more on this shitty outfit click here. The SPLC correctly calls them a hate group. 

So naturally, Mike Flynn, yes, the very same guy who wants war forever more, spoke to ACT For America a few days ago. According to this article he said that Islam is a “cancer” and carried on with the usual shit people of that ilk claim about how Islam is an ideology and not really a religion and so on and on and on.

But it gets worse.  With Zionism, and Zionism is the main beneficiary of all of this, it always does.

It turns out that Flynn just a few weeks ago joined ACT For America’s board of directors.  Flynn is actually working for an SPL-designated hate group.  You can’t make this shit up. Damn, if only Trump had picked him then the number 2 office in the land would be held by a guy whois on the board of directors of a hate group.  And so many people were all so worried about David Duke. 

And:

“The former Lt. Gen. is also scheduled to speak at ACT’s national conference and legislative briefing in September. He is similarly set to make an appearance in Broadview Heights, Ohio on July 15 to speak at an event sponsored by the Cleveland ACT chapter.”

And you Trump supporters have got to love this:

“In a February 29 tweet, Flynn praised ACT’s founder and president Brigitte Gabriel, a notorious anti-Muslim demagogue. A day earlier, Gabriel was photographed with Trump at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Gabriel was apparently at the estate to give a “national security briefing.”

Nice to know that Trump not only has Walid Phares sitting in his lap, he is also getting advice from wackos like Gabriel and Flynn. 

And of course it is all about money.  Flynn is pushing his book, the one he co-authored with Ledeen.   

4. Well it’s video time. 

Here’s Mike Pence not sucking.

And as a tribute to Flynn and his Muslim-hating Israel-firster cohorts who are so afraid of the spread of Shakira law, we present Shakira.

“. . . that little red circle.”

1. As part of the deal, the State Department will have to produce 40 new reports a year on issues as diverse as Hong Kong autonomy, religious freedom and anti-Semitism. Government officials in Venezuela will face three more years of sanctions.

Doesn’t take a genius to see what’s wrong here.

2. Jonathan Cook is always worth reading.  This one quote says an awful lot. Note to Shas Party members, red highlighting is done by today’s guest editor, Haifa Wehbe. (Thank goodness she’s back.)

In the current climate, Mr Herzog and his opposition party Zionist Union have found themselves highly uncomfortable at having in their midst a single non-Jewish legislator.

Cook also correctly notes the following:

It is no longer just the state’s Jewishness that is sacrosanct. The occupation is too.

3. And the above being the case, it is only natural to see the exact same sentiment in the race to become the Israeli Vice President for American Affairs (IVPFAA).  We here at Mantiq al-Tayr knew we could count on Ted Cruz and as usual he came through with lying colors. 

The government of Israel reiterated the reality that the Golan Heights are part of Israel’s sovereign territory,” Cruz said in a statement, adding, “Given the presence of hostile terrorist organizations ranging from ISIS to Hezbollah on Israel’s northern border, it is foolhardy and dangerous for elements in the international community to try to pressure Israel to abandon the Golan to the chaos engulfing Syria.

You have got to love the logic.  The US and it’s allies sponsor international terrorism against the government of Syria leading to the destruction of much of the country and so therefore the US must support Israel’s occupation of a real nice piece of real estate in Syria because of the “threat” these US-supported terrorists pose to a racist state which also supports the terrorists. Americans have exactly the kind of government they deserve. 

4. Did I mention Israeli support of terrorists

The vehicle was carrying Israeli-made mines with Hebrew writing on them, as well as mortars, RPG rockets and hand grenades. It was not immediately clear how the Israeli weapons got into the hands of those arming ISIS.

5. Apparently absolutely anyone can work for the Washington Post (a subset of the Jerusalem Washington New York Times Post which is based in the former capital of the United States) it seems.  How is this for a headline?

“If Abadi fails to survive chaos, U.S. must decide what’s next.”

The entire premise of that headline is the real problem  (the article itself sucks, but is at the same time quite revealing).  The U.S. has destroyed Iraq as a country, it may well never recover.  This has been the goal since day one.  The “chaos” – and there seems to be a hell of a lot of it – is the end game. If you understand that, then it is pretty easy to understand what’s been going on and to see who the real culprits are. 

6. And you can meet a bunch of them here on May 22nd.

There ought to be a huge protest at this event which will feature a host of the usual suspects.  Among these suspects are Dennis Ross and Rep. Ed Royce (Yisrael Beiteinu, CA).  The conference has quite a lovely program too.  One great item is at 1o:20.  It is a panel discussion lead by Caroline Glick entitled “The future of the Jewish people and the war against BDS.”

That panel discussion comes right on the heels of an untitled address by Dennis Ross, who is now back at JPPI. Nice work if you can get it.  We featured Ross and JPPI a long time ago.

And then you can get “Comic Relief” from Dr. Ruth.  How cool is that?

Later in the day you can attend a panel discussion entitled “Does the world have an answer to Jewish Islamic terror?” (Could l you imagine if CAIR did something like this?)

Rep. Royce speaks at 4:40 and for just 20 minutes.  Maybe  you folks in California might want to ask him what he is going to say and why?

7. Okay it is video time. Boy, did the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr find some goodies for you, but I digress.

First off, here is former Hagannah member Dr. Ruth talking about Israel. She even shows a picture of  herself from those days with a bunch of guns behind her and she says in the video “Whoever is not going to give us support, watch out for me. I can still put five bullets into that little red circle.” Imagine if a Muslim did this today.  Imagine.

In case you can’t make it to the conference, you can just watch this. It’s good old Ed in love with Israel. He is actually more disgusting than Ruth.  Keep your barf bag handy.

 

You’re welcome.
