Truer words were never spoken…

TO WHOM DOES THE LAND OF ISRAEL BELONG??
An Israeli Sense of Humor at the United Nations sets the record straight.

An ingenious example of speech and politics occurred recently in the United Nations Assembly and made the world community smile.

A representative from Israel began:
‘Before beginning my talk I want to tell you something about Moses:

When he struck the rock and it brought forth water, he thought,
“What a good opportunity to have a bath!”
Moses removed his clothes, put them aside on the rock and entered the water.
When he got out and wanted to dress, his clothes had vanished.
A Palestinian had stolen them!

The Palestinian representative at the UN jumped up furiously and
shouted, “What are you talking about? The Palestinians weren’t there then.”

The Israeli representative smiled and said,
“And now that we have made that clear, I will begin my speech.”

…to make peace with Israel.

It can never happen according to their own charter.

The morons on the left continue to spew their hatred of the Jewish State and to support the murdering fanatics of Hamas.

Israel has every right to defend itself and should do everything in its power to squash these subhuman scum.

This is Pat Condell from 2012. Still holds true today.

…I think I can name one. No one is afraid of us anymore. Mission accomplished.

White House Struggles With Naming Foreign Policy Achievements

By Joel Gehrke

President Obama’s spokesman struggled a bit when asked to identify foreign-policy achievements that former secretary of state Hillary Clinton played a role in accomplishing, first panning the question as a “pop quiz” and then settling on an answer that highlights work in Iraq, even as an al-Qaeda splinter group, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, has invaded the country’s second largest city.

“It feels a little like a pop quiz, but I’ve got a couple ideas,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said when asked to name the accomplishments, before saying that Obama and Clinton succeeded in “ending the war in Iraq [and] responsibly winding down the war in Afghanistan.” He also cited ”the success of our efforts to dismantle and destroy al-Qaeda core.

”The Iraq answer is a bit awkward for Earnest, though, as extremists have taken control of Mosul, the country’s second city. “The whole of Mosul collapsed today. We’ve fled our homes and neighborhoods, and we’re looking for God’s mercy,” said Mahmoud Al Taie, a dentist, according to the Wall Street Journal. “We are waiting to die.”

…when the US completely withdrew, the Islamists just built themselves back up and are now doing exactly what anyone with half a brain could see coming.

Our foreign policy is a joke and the rest of the world see the US as a joke.

How many Soldiers died fighting for that shit hole and now it’s back in the hands of Al-Qaeda

Militants Overrun Iraq’s Second-Largest City as Government Forces FleeMosul Strike Is Serious Blow to Baghdad’s Efforts to Control Widening Insurgency

The Iraqi government declared a state of emergency Tuesday as al Qaeda-linked militants from ISIS, or the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, violently seized control of Mosul, Iraq’s second-largest city. Via The Foreign Bureau, WSJ’s global news update.

BAGHDAD—Islamist insurgents seized control of Iraq’s second-largest city on Tuesday in a brazen military operation that underscored the weakness of the central government across vast swaths of the country.

Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki declared a nationwide “state of maximum preparedness” after government forces fled Mosul in disarray following four days of fighting. He asked parliament to declare a state of emergency. But he didn’t say whether military forces were mobilizing to retake the city, 220 miles north of the capital, Baghdad.

… from City’s Central Bank to Make Isis World’s Richest Terror Force.

Who didn’t see this one coming?

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (Isis) has become the richest terror group ever after looting 500 billion Iraqi dinars – the equivalent of $429m (£256m) – from Mosul’s central bank, according to the regional governor.

Nineveh governor Atheel al-Nujaifi confirmed Kurdish televison reports that Isis militants had stolen millions from numerous banks across Mosul. A large quantity of gold bullion is also believed to have been stolen.

Following the siege of the country’s second city, the bounty collected by the group has left it richer than al-Qaeda itself and as wealthy as small nations such as Tonga, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands and the Falkland Islands.

…of Mexico.

A “three-layer security line 140 miles from southern border aimed to fight drug, human trafficking” into Mexico.

Now there’s a fine “how-you-do” for you. This is absolutely outrageous.
Why are we not doing more with OUR southern border.
You know, to maybe fight drug and human trafficking coming in from Mexico.

That would be a great plan.

Instead, they offer us amnesty for illegal aliens, promises of a fence, and more enforcement.
Once again, the idiots in Washington, living in their own little shit hole, ignore the American people and do whatever the hell they want to do.

When the hell is enough, enough?
Fire all these bastards!

Obama Administration Considers Plan to Bolster Mexico’s Southern Border
Three-layer security line 140 miles from southern border aimed to fight drug, human trafficking

Obama administration and Mexican government officials recently discussed creating a three-tier security system designed to protect Mexico’s southern border from drug and human traffickers, according to U.S. officials.

The border control plan calls for U.S. funding and technical support of three security lines extending more than 100 miles north of Mexico’s border with Guatemala and Belize. The border security system would use sensors and intelligence-gathering to counter human trafficking and drug running from the region, a major source of illegal immigration into the United States.

According to the officials who discussed the U.S.-Mexican talks on condition of anonymity, the Mexican government proposed setting up three security cordons using electronic sensors and other security measures along the southern Mexican border, along a line some 20 miles from the southern border, and along a third security line about 140 miles from the southern Mexican territorial line.

The plan would be funded in part through the Merida Initiative, a U.S.-led anti-drug trafficking program that has involved nearly $2 billion in U.S. funds.

Border security was a major topic during the visit to Mexico last month by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Thomas Winkowski, and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Assistant Secretary Alan Bersin.

More on Benghazi may be coming out that will continue to show Obama and Clinton to be liars.

Ex-Diplomats Report New Benghazi Whistleblowers with Info Devastating to Clinton and Obama

More whistleblowers will emerge shortly in the escalating Benghazi scandal, according to two former U.S. diplomats who spoke with PJ Media Monday afternoon.

These whistleblowers, colleagues of the former diplomats, are currently securing legal counsel because they work in areas not fully protected by the Whistleblower law.

According to the diplomats, what these whistleblowers will say will be at least as explosive as what we have already learned about the scandal, including details about what really transpired in Benghazi that are potentially devastating to both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
