"TO PREVENT A MASSACRE"



“In just one month, the United States has worked with our international partners to mobilize a broad coalition, secure an international mandate to protect civilians, stop an advancing army, prevent a massacre, and establish a no-fly zone with our allies and partners”.

Remarks by President Barack Obama in Address to the Nation on Libya at the National Defence University, Washington, D.C. March 28, 2011

Note the words “prevent a massacre” in an excerpt of that speech.

Is that the Obama Foreign Policy Doctrine? Is that what guides his moral compass when it comes to making decisions, such as Libya?

If I was in a room and could ask Obama any question it would be: ‘what about Darfur? Is there no massacre going on there?’
"Self-defence militias" ordered by Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir, ride into villages on horses and camels, slaughter men, rape women and steal whatever they could find. According to estimates 300,000 people have died since 2007 and an estimated 2.7m people have left since the conflict began.

Mr President, surely, based on your mission statement of preventing a massacre in Libya, you should be deploying the same to the Sudan?

What about China?
Human rights groups have documented an increasing number of arrests of Chinese Christians since the beginning of 2004. According to the charity Christian Solidarity Worldwide, persecution is becoming more systematic and targeted at large-scale Christian gatherings. Since June the charity has documented three mass arrests of unregistered Christians. In each case more than 100 people were detained. Amnesty International has reported many cases of detained church leaders in recent years, especially in the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu and Hebei.
One of the most high-profile cases is that of Gong Shengliang, head of the South China Church, who was sentenced to death in 2001. His sentence was commuted to a prison term, but Amnesty has received reports that he has been severely tortured in jail.
In August three Christians were sentenced to jail terms for passing information to foreign governments, and in July state media reported that a woman had been beaten to death after being arrested for handing out bibles.
"They hung me up across an iron gate, then they yanked open the gate and my whole body lifted until my chest nearly split in two. I hung like that for four hours."
That is how Peter Xu Yongze, the founder of one of the largest religious movements in China, described his treatment during one of five jail sentences on account of his belief in Christianity.

Surely Mr President you would considering this a form of a massacre against Christians? Surely you believe that restrictions of the right to worship are intolerable and needs to be ceased by any means at your vast disposal.

If I maybe so forward, Mr President, I don't think for one minute that you believe what you are saying about Libya. I believe that you wouldn’t mind if Libya continued under Muammar Gaddafi. Louis Farrakhan who is the Nation of Islam Leader and an unrepentant Anti Semite, who also happens to be the best buddy of Obama’s spiritual advisor of 20 years, Reverend. Jeremiah Wright, said to Obama “Don’t let these wicked demons move you in a direction that will absolutely ruin your future with your people in Africa and throughout the world”. “Because they don’t want a Black face in the White House”. Furthermore, it is well known that three women have literary persuaded Obama to get involved with Libya. They are:
Hillary Clinton - US. Secretary of State
Stephanie Powers - White House consultant, and
Susan Rice – US ambassador to United Nations.

I think that if Obama really believed what he was saying about Libya and the mission, he would have said that the objective was to remove Gaddafi. Surely that is what is necessary to stop the bloodshed.

What is happening now in world politics is that the American people are fighting a war to save European oil wells in Libya - Have a look at the picture below which tells its own story.


Horrified of their oil and the ensuing chaos with further increased prices at the pump in a deep recession in their countries, British Prime Minister David Cameron and French Prime Minister Nicholas Sarkozy are running the table in spite of Obama. Consequently this makes Obama come across as weak in the eyes of Clinton, Powers and Rice, hence his intervention into the issue of Libya.

The President should stand up right now and proclaim that Gaddafi must be removed from power without delay; he should deploy the full resources of the American government to topple his brutal dictatorship by any means necessary. Until he does that this mission in Libya looks pathetic and will certainly go on and on for some time.

Who Is Like You Israel, A Nation Of Greatness

The butchering of the Fogel family in the West Bank settlement of Itamar brings us a depressing reminder of the barbaric strategy of our eternal enemy which the Jewish people must live with every day.
The dead were named as Udi Fogel, 36, his wife Ruth, 35, and children Yoav, 11, Elad, four, and Hadas, three months.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas on Saturday condemned the attack on West Bank settlement Itamar in which five Israelis were murdered.
In a statement released by his office, Abbas "stressed his rejection and condemnation of all violence directed against civilians, regardless of who was behind it or the reason for it.” Abbas added that "violence produces violence and what is needed is to speed up a just and comprehensive solution to the conflict.”

That statement is nothingshort of abysmal and is another closet ‘high five’ to the terrorist from the man who was described by Ariel Sharon as a “chicken without feathers”.

There have been many statements following this deplorable act of terrorism in Itamar some of which make sense, but here is what really annoys me: Why do we have to wait for such a tragedy to show our true colours? Why do we only stand up until the last possible to moment to show the world, and us, what we truly care about. It takes the butchering of a beautiful 3 month old girl, to finally rally our wonderful people into action. I read that every day of Shiva for the Fogel Family – Rami Levi (who owns one of the larger supermarket chains in Israel) comes to the (Shiva) house in Itamar, and fills the cupboards and refrigerator himself with food for the family and guests.
Look; I’m not saying that never happens on a regular instance, but it does show the tremendous good will of our amazing people in times of strife.

Going back to “chicken with feathers”, I generally don't understand what Bibi Netanyahu is doing? We should be a country that embraces the settlement movement and use it to enhance the lives of our people and consequently the Palestinian people. Instead we shy away from being proud of our biblical roots and kowtow to Obama, Cameron and the rest of the EU.

I believe that Bibi is missing a big opportunity here. In my opinion this is the weakest western world since World War II.
You have Barack Obama who is paralysed up in Washington, DC following his midterm election whitewash, despite what is happening from Libya, Japan, Bahrain and Saudi Arabia- the world hasn’t heard from the ‘great communicator’ and I believe it’s because he generally has run out of ideas.
David Cameron has a spine ‘the size of a midget’ who probably only commands authority in a local hair salon.
Nicholas Sarkozy is too busy ‘honeymooning’ around the Champs – Élysées with super-model wife, Carla Bruni to know that he is going to be pole-axed in the next presidential elections.
Let’s also not forget our friend Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been accused of paying for sex with an underage Moroccan teenager 13 times. I hardly think he is concerned if Israel builds a new hospital in Judea and Samaria at this moment in time.
The EU isn’t exactly ‘Mr. Serious’ either. Herman Van Rompuy, the president of the EU, apparently has “all the charisma of a damp rag and the appearance of a low-grade bank clerk”.
I won’t waste your time on the UN which is as significant as Jimmy Carter.

So as you can see the Western World isn’t exactly commanding respect these days and I believe that the Israeli government need to change their outlook sharpish. Very soon you are going to have the likes of Ed Milliband, Ségolène Royal, and more blinkered liberal socialists in power that will really care about Israel’s “crimes and misdemeanours” and cause more trouble.
Israel must negotiate from a position of strength and be the country that has a ‘banner of bold, unmistakable colours, with no pastel shades’.

The Fogel family, along with thousands of others, were kicked out of Gush Katif to help the ‘peace process’. We were promised that if we evacuate Gaza in 2004, then peace won’t be far off. Instead all we got were rockets, bloodshed, boycott threats and international pressure. How sad that it is the people that we gave this land back too, who are the ones that launched the most
grievous rocket of all on the Fogel family.

I heard Israeli Cabinet Minister Eli Yishai say that Israel must build 1,000 new units in settlements for every person murdered. Why do we have to wait until something happens to do that? Israel has every right to carry out construction in the settlements and we should continue building in the name of the Fogel family.

Who is like you Israel, a nation of greatness !!!
