Obamination: Eid-ul-Fitr

Obamination: Eid-ul-Fitr Barack Hussein Obama, like other Muslims & politicians, is a practiced and skillful liar. In the present case, he skillfully attributed anodyne beneficence to Moe's war cult on the occasion of Eid-ol-Fitr, the celebration of the end of the month of Ramadan.

    In keeping with occasional habit, I have highlighted some key words and phrases in the President's spew of Al-Taqiyya, copying the most important of them to headings followed by my comments.

    At variance with my usual habit, I have included only one full quote from Islam's canon. Others are linked in a list at the end of the post. Obama's spew is mercifully short, my list of links is not. I have included links to several ayat, with three tafsirs for each ayeh, several hadith and a few citations to Reliance of the Traveller.

Statement by the President on the Occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr

Michelle and I would like to send Eid greetings to Muslim communities in the United States and around the world. Ramadan has been a time for families and communities to share the happiness of coming together in intense devotion, reflection, and service. Millions all over the world have been inspired to honor their faith by reaching out to those less fortunate. This year, many have observed the month while courageously persevering in their efforts to secure basic necessities and fundamental ... , we send our best wishes for a blessed holiday to Muslim communities around the world.

Muslim communities


    Why are there; why should there be "Muslim communities" in the United States?  Settlements, outposts, colonies & bases might be better descriptive terms for areas with predominately Muslim populations.

intense devotion

    Intense devotion would run parallel to and in conjunction with belief. Intense belief would mark them  as believers, would it not?  A review of that term is called for.

9:111. Verily, Allâh has purchased of the believers their lives and their properties; for the price that theirs shall be the Paradise. They fight in Allâh's Cause, so they kill (others) and are killed. It is a promise in truth which is binding on Him in the Taurât (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel) and the Qur'ân. And who is truer to his covenant than Allâh? Then rejoice in the bargain which you have concluded. That is the supreme success .


    Ramadan celebrates the month in which Moe received his first revelations.  They are celebrating the  revelation of the Qur'an which commands them to conquer the entire world, sanctifying and mandating conquest1, genocide2 & terrorism3

honor their faith

    Zakat is one of the five pillars of Islam. It involves a levy of 2.5% on income and accumulated wealth. One eighth of Zakat must be paid to those "fighting in Allah's cause4

those less fortunate

    There are special rules for Eid-u;-Fitr5. Giving Zakat to Kuffar is prohibited.6

securing fundamental freedoms

    Al-Taqiyya seems to come naturally to President Barack Hussein Obama. Those revolting against Arab tyrannies are not seeking to secure fundamental freedoms, they are seeking, as Obama is, to secure power. Recent events and revelations in Egypt, Libya & Tunisia make this fatal fact abundantly clear.  Those now in charge of Libya gained their combat experience against our troops in Iraq.

best wishes

    True best wishes for Muslims would be expressed in supplication to the Almighty for their swift and permanent emancipation from slavery to Allah.

blessed holiday

    How can anything associated with such an accursed screed as the Qur'an be blessed?

Obamination: 9/11 Disservice

Political correctness may be defined as irrational persistence in the belief that "it is possible to pick up a turd by the clean end".  Ten years ago, the "Magnificent Ninteen", armed with box cutters, hijacked four commercial passenger aircraft and flew them three of them into occupied office structures.

    The immediate tactical objective of that attack was to maximize grief, suffering, psychological impact, insecurity, distrust, physical destruction and economic damage to America.  The extended tactical objective  was to  instill a sense of defeat, insecurity & helplessness; to effect the maximum possible negative impact on our will and ability to mount an effective counter attack and defense.

    The strategic objective is to effectively eliminate what they perceive as the greatest obstacle to total global conquest & domination and the establishment of permanent Islamic hegemony.

    The attack was not planned, funded facilitated and executed by a single nation state or alliance of nation states.  It was  planned and executed by  believing Muslims, in the name of Allah.   When they slit the throats of the flight crews, they  shouted the takbir.  "Allah hu Akbar" says it all.  We do not need any investigation, we do not need any evidence, we do not require interrogations, trials or witnesses.  The proof stands out clearly in Islam's cannon of scripture, tradition, exegeses & jurisprudence. 

    President Barack Hussein Obama, in his weekly address, made no mention of or allusion to the fatal facts stated above.  He pretended that the G'd'd Abomination was the result of amorphous natural forces, equivalent to an earthquake or hurricane.  In fact, it was an attack by  enemies of the human race; deracinated zombies Hellbent on a course of maximal destruction by what they believe to be Allah's imperatives, threat & promise.

    As a wise man said "Its Islam, stupid!". Not Al-Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, 'extremists', 'radicals' neither was it terrorists. "Its Islam, stupid!"

    Allah commands Muslims to conquer the entire world. The conquest imperatives are contained in Al-Anfal 39 & At-Taubah 29. "Fight them until" resistance ceases and "only Allah is worshiped", "altogether and everywhere".  "Fight those who"... until they "pay the jizya" and "feel themselves subdued".  What could possibly be re obvious? 

    Moe confirmed the imperatives, declaring that he was "ordered to fight the people" and "commanded to fight with men", the terminal condition in both cases being effective conversion & submission to Islam. 

    The imperatives are codified in Shari'ah, most clearly in Reliance of the Traveller, Book O, Chapter 9, Paragraph 8:  "The caliph (o25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians "... . Jihad is defined as "war against non-Muslims", a "communal obligation" upon Muslims, "meaning upon the Muslims each year".  Hedaya confirms the fact that jihad is undertaken on Islamic initiative, it is offensive, not defensive: "The destruction of the sword  is incurred by infidels, although they be not the first aggressors" [Volume II, Book IX, Chapter `, Page 141]

    The outcome is predicted in exegesis: Tafsir Ibn Kathir leaves no doubt.

    Ten years ago, Shrub lied about the identity of the enemy who attacked us, presumably because his family is deep in the pockets of Saudi Arabia and he did not want to face well justified demands for the extermination of Islam. 

    Ten years later, Obamination  persists in the same deception, presumably because he is a Muslim.  He makes reference to ending the fighting in Iraq and withdrawing from Afghanistan, but none to why we invaded them.  Both nations base their laws on Shari'ah, the same Islamic law that mandates yearly attacks against disbelievers. We lost those wars wasting  billions of dollars and priceless lives & limbs. Victory requires stamping out Islam.

    Thanks and a tip of the hat to Atlas Shrugs for bringing Obanination's spew of feces to my attention.  But I am not in complete agreement with Pamela Geller: "The call for service on September 11th is inappropriate and sacrilegious. September 11th is a national day of mourning. Not service, remembrance for those who died in a surprise military strike against the United States of America conducted by the military wing of the global jihad, resulting in the largest loss of life in American history.". 

    September 11 should be a national day of cursing, neither service and not mourning.  We should be united in raising our voices to God in supplication for the immediate death & eternal damnation of those who planned, financed, facilitated, executed, enjoyed, celebrated and sympathized with the attack.  We should be united in prayer for the eternal damnation of Muhammad and the complete and permanent eradication of the war cult he founded.

    Turds do not have clean ends. Islam does not have clean ends.  It was created by Moe for his own personal emolument through the perpetuation of war, generating a continuing flow of spoils and tribute.  Islam is mercenary, it can not be rendered beneficent.  Islam is aggressively violent, it can not be rendered passive.  For the disgusting details, see: Islam's Mercenary Mission and What's Wrong With Islam/Muslims?.

    Obaminatio's spew is below, followed by my commentary on the major points.

Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
Saturday, August 27, 2011

In just two weeks, we’ll come together, as a nation, to mark the 10th anniversary of the September 11th attacks.  We’ll remember the innocent lives we lost.  We’ll stand with the families who loved them.  We’ll honor the heroic first responders who rushed to the scene and saved so many.  And we’ll pay tribute to our troops and military families, and all those who have served over the past ten years, to keep us safe and strong.

We’ll also recall how the worst terrorist attack in American history brought out the best in the American people.  How Americans lined up to give blood.  How volunteers drove across the country to lend a hand.  How schoolchildren donated their savings.  How communities, faith groups and businesses collected food and clothing. 

We were united, and the outpouring of generosity and compassion reminded us that in times of challenge, we Americans move forward together, as one people.

This September 11th, Michelle and I will join the commemorations at Ground Zero, in Shanksville, and at the Pentagon.  But even if you can’t be in New York, Pennsylvania or Virginia, every American can be part of this anniversary.  Once again, 9/11 will be a National Day of Service and Remembrance.  And in the days and weeks ahead, folks across the country—in all 50 states—will come together, in their communities and neighborhoods, to honor the victims of 9/11 and to reaffirm the strength of our nation with acts of service and charity.

In Minneapolis, volunteers will help restore a community center.  In Winston-Salem, North Carolina, they’ll hammer shingles and lay floors to give families a new home.  In Tallahassee, Florida, they’ll assemble care packages for our troops overseas and their families here at home.  In Orange County, California, they’ll renovate homes for our veterans.  And once again, Michelle and I look forward to joining a local service project as well. 

There are so many ways to get involved, and every American can do something.  To learn more about the opportunities where you live, just go online and visit Serve.gov.  Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we lost; a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.          

On this 10th anniversary, we still face great challenges as a nation.  We’re emerging from the worst economic crisis in our lifetimes.  We’re taking the fight to al Qaeda, ending the war in Iraq and starting to bring our troops home from Afghanistan.  And we’re working to rebuild the foundation of our national strength here at home. 

None of this will be easy.  And it can’t be the work of government alone.  As we saw after 9/11, the strength of America has always been the character and compassion of our people.  So as we mark this solemn anniversary, let’s summon that spirit once more.  And let’s show that the sense of common purpose that we need in America doesn’t have to be a fleeting moment; it can be a lasting virtue—not just on one day, but every day.

Americans move forward together, as one people.

    That crap belongs in a campaign speech, not in a remembrance of innocent lives lost in a violent attack by believers in Islam.  For a politician who constantly divides the nation by race and economic status to mention togetherness, implying unity is the Acme of arrogance. "Move forward" implies the Socialist agenda of economic destruction & redistribution. That phrase belongs in a paid campaign commercial; it is entirely unrelated to the event being commemorated. 

every American can be part of this anniversary

    Those of us who are old enough to remember the Abomination can not avoid remembering the horrific events of that day. The image of jumpers evading the flames and smoke, hurtling toward the pavement below is indelibly imprinted on our memories. Likewise the image of the collapsing towers.

    Far from being an empty clause, it is another appeal to unity: unity in voting to re-elect the worst President in American history. It belongs in a paid campaign commercial, not in a commemoration of innocent lives lost.

National Day of Service and Remembrance

    There is no rational connection between service and remembrance. This clause, like its precedents, is polemical; unrelated to the topic at hand. "Service" fits right in with "sacrifice" and "eat your peas". I happen to like peas, I will eat as many as I can get my hands on when they are fresh. I had a bowl of pea soup for breakfast. I do not like the Socialist agenda of tax increases, which Obamination is promoting with his spew of excrement.

reaffirm the strength of our nation with acts of service and charity. 

    How did FDR reaffirm the strength of our nation after Pearl Harbor?  "Service and charity" devolves into tax increases. It is entirely out of place in a speech remembering the Abomination.

Michelle and I look forward to joining a local service project as well.

    Mr. President, do a national service, right now: resign!  Resign!!  Resign!!! 

emerging from the worst economic crisis

    No, we are plunging deeper into the abyss as a direct result of the Socialist agenda behind your outrageous policies.  That phrase, like so many others, belongs in a paid campaign commercial.

taking the fight to al Qaeda

    Al-Qaeda is a sub set of the enemy, not the enemy. Islam is the enemy. The war won't be over until Islam no longer exists; until there are no more Muslims.  When every Muslim is dead or apostate, then the war will be ended in victory, not before.

ending the war in Iraq and starting to bring our troops home from Afghanistan

    We have not won; we have lost and are losing because those nations are populated and governed by Muslims under Islamic law, the same law that mandates annual attacks on disbelievers.

rebuild the foundation of our national strength

    The Declaration of Independence & Constitution are the foundation of our national strength; you are eroding and evading them. The clause actually refers to the economy, which you are deliberately destroying. Those words belong in a paid campaign commercial, not in a speech about the Abomination.

character and compassion of our people

    This phrase and the clause it belongs to devolve into the theme of including the enemy under the umbrella of protection afforded by the Bill of Rights. "The right to peacefully practice Islam."  Islam can not be practiced peacefully because "Jihad is ordained for you."  and Muslims are not permitted to pick and choose from the Qur'an

sense of common purpose

    Common purpose? Communism! The phrase belongs in a paid campaign commercial. 

not just on one day, but every day

    So why bring it up now, in the context of remembering the G'd'd Abomination?  A proper remembrance involves the 3000 who lost their lives and the thousands who suffered injuries, many of whom are disabled.  A proper remembrance involves acknowledgment of the cause of those deaths & injuries and the identity & content of the ideology which motivated it.  A campaign speech pushing the Socialist agenda is entirely out of place in that context.

Educating our Youth about Islam

Regular readers of my posts know that my specialty is deliaring pious frauds.  In the present case, two clues stand out from the beginning.  First, the source: Common Ground News: the name implies the existence of common ground shared by Islam and Western Civilization where no common ground exists.  The second clue is the French word in the title: it is impossible to re-establish cordial relations because only a state of war has existed since the foundation of Moe's war cult. 

Before 9/11, many Americans were blissfully ignorant about Islam. After 9/11, everyone had something to say about it. Unfortunately, much of it was based on half-truths and unsubstantiated claims that cast Islam’s past, present and future as one of violence. This has left us with the great need and challenge of reshaping our public understanding of Islam in America.

Islam: violence

past 

    "How many Ghazwat did the Prophet undertake?" Zaid replied, "Nineteen."[Sahih Bukhari 5.59.285] Visit Wikipedia's article on Moe's military career  and view the list of battles in the right sidebar.  Next, visit the Wikipedia article on Islamic conquests and view the map in the right sidebar.

    How was Islam established? "By Jihâd Islâm is established, Allâh’s Word is made superior, (His Word being Lâ ilaha illallâh which means none has the right to be worshipped but Allâh), and His Religion (Islâm) is propagated. "[Noble Qur'an footnote to 2:190]

    What is jihad?  Al-Jihâd (holy fighting) in Allâh’s Cause (with full force of numbers and weaponry); "Jihad means to war against non-Muslims"[Reliance of the Traveller O9.0]

present

    The Armenian genocide, attempted reconquest of Israel, Indian civil war, Lebanese civil war and subsequent terrorist attacks are ample evidence of the continuance of jihad.

future

    I do not have a crystal ball, and I doubt that Mr. Bos has one, but we do have Islamic texts.  Allah's jihad imperative against Jews & Christians, contained in Surah At-Taubah 29, is outcome oriented, with neither geographic nor chronological limits.  Moe's oral tradition has a clue for us:
"jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal ".
[Sunan Abu Dawud14.2526]  Of course, Sunan Abu Dawud is ranked third in authenticity; perhaps we should consult the most authentic hadith collection. "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."[Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177]  "The Hour" refers to the day of judgment, when the gates of Paradise will swing open to Muslims.

    Perhaps Mr. Box will favor us with a comment elaborating on the "half truths" and "unsubstantiated claims", but I won't hold my breath waiting.

understanding of Islam

    Exactly what is wrong with our "public understanding of Islam" that  needs to be "reshaped"?  Is it the infamous lie by President Bush that "Islam is a great religion of peace"?  Is it his infamous lie that "Islam has been hijacked", or is it both?

 Just a cursory review of the number of evangelical Christian responses to “A Common Word” (www.acommonword.com), a letter written by a number of high profile Muslim leaders that outlines common principles in the Muslim and Christian scriptures, evidences this.

common word

    I have seldom seen such a slickly crafted and target rich fraud as the Ulema's missive to Christianity. My initial dissection ran to 45KB. I later created a separate blog, Go Burn With Muhammad, primarily to deliar it in detail.


People have overcome biases and changed opinions because of their relationships with Muslims. It is through the face of another, not facts about them, that we are forced to re-examine our positions. As the number of people who find themselves in relationships with Muslims increases, so will the fairness and respect with which they treat their faith.

relationships with Muslims

    Our relationship with Muslims is prey:predator, nothing can change that objective factual reality.  We do not have Muslim friends. Allah explicitly forbids friendly relations with Kuffar. This is one of nine explicit prohibitions: 5:51. O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliyâ' (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliyâ' to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliyâ', then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allâh guides not those people who are the Zâlimûn (polytheists and wrong­doers and unjust).. The prohibition extends to parents & siblings[9:23].

face, not facts

    Stare into the eyes of a photograph of Usama bin Ladin or Nidal Malik Hasan. How do their visages force you to re-examine your positionon Islam?
The assertion is so absurd on its face as to require no elaboration. 

fairness

    Fairness is an abstract concept that can neither be efficiently defined nor measured.  Exactly how does it apply to Islam?  What is fair; is it allowing the construction of Mosques in America while no church can be built in Saudi Arabia or Egypt?  Is it fair to tell office workers in Britain that they must not eat in the presence of Muslim co-workers during Ramadan?

respect

    Respect, like credit, is given where respect is due. Islam is not due any respect; it is due contempt and detestation.  How can a Christian respect a cult whose doctrine denies the patrimony, deity, crucifixion, death & resurrection of his Savior and reveres him as a genocidal warlord?  How can a freeman respect a cult whose doctrine postulates a divine mission to conquer him?


As I consider what the next ten years will hold in our rapprochement with Islam, I think the answer largely depends on where our youth will get their information. Make no mistake about it, someone will teach them.

where our youth will get their information

    They will not receive relevant, accurate factual information from the public schools because Islam is already infiltrating and intimidating the text book publishers and those who set the standards for text books. 

    They will not receive relevant, accurate factual information about Islam from the mainstream media, because they are infiltrated & intimidated. They will not receive it from politicians because most of them are either ignorant or politically correct. 

    Will our youth receive relevant, accurate factual information about Islam from the church? Will Sunday school divert attention from the Gospel to the Qur'an, Life of Muhammad and hadith?  Will our youth slog through several hundred pages of redundant, obtuse Arab fantasy? Will they read an 800 page biography?  Will they slog through thousands of redundant and fantastic stories about men long dead?  Perhaps they might if you tell them there is sex in it. 

    Will the church introduce students to the writings of Robert Spencer, Andrew Bostom, Andrew McCarthy  or Raymond Ibrahim? Fat chance. Perhaps the students will become curious and search the web for information. With luck, they might discover this blog post and click its links. 

Our youth have been exposed to disparate components of Islam and will not accept only broad generalisations and a bottom line message that Islam is a religion of peace – please be clear that I am not countering this as the religion’s ideal.

Islam is a religion of peace

    While that might be the personal ideal of a substantial sub set of Muslims, it is not Allah's ideal nor that of his Messenger. A religion of peace would not devote two chapters of its scripture to the warfare, commanding its votaries to engage in it, commanding its Messenger to urge them to it and laying down rules for division of spoils.  If Islam were a religion of peace, its canon law would not define a "religious obligation" to attack disbelievers in every year.

    A religion of peace would not threaten its votaries with eternity in Hellfire if they refuse to go to war, nor would it promise them admission to Paradise if they join the jihad.  A religion of peace would not impute "steps" to injure or enrage disbelievers to its votaries as "deeds of righteousness", accruing Brownie Points toward admission to Paradise.

Islamic Reformation?

Can Islam Be Reformed?  Dennis Prager asserts that it needs and is capable of reformation.  While stating his belief that Islam is reformable, Prager fails to offer any evidence to support his belief.  Instead, he gives us a five point ordered list of tasks which must be performed. With that great accomplishment, he give us a little information about some supposed reformers. 

    The third point in his task list is a major stumbling block: "Publicly and unambiguously condemn all violence in the name of Islam, including violence against Israel." That presents a problem because any Muslim who does so thereby writes his own death warrant.  Perhaps, as a self-acknowledged student of Arabic and lecturer on comparative religions, Prager should be aware of this provision of Shari'ah, found in Reliance of the Traveller, Book O,. Chapter 8.  First, it prescribes the death penalty for apostasy, next it lists 20 acts entailing apostasy.

O8.1.

When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed.

O8.2

In such a case, it is obligatory for the caliph (A: or his representive) to ask him to repent and return to Islam. If he does, it is accepted from him, but if he refuses, he is immediately killed.

O8.7: Acts that Entail Leaving Islam[...]

-7- to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;
[...]

    Islamic law forbids rejecting any part of the Qur'an.  For example:

2:216. Jihâd (holy fighting in Allâh's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allâh knows but you do not know.

8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allâh) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allâh Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allâh), then certainly, Allâh is All-Seer of what they do.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allâh, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.


    Allah ordained jihad for Muslims and commanded them to fight us until resistance ceases, Allah has a global monopoly and Jews & Christians are subjugated and extorted. Prager expects Muslim reformers to abjure those verses; Islamic law demands their heads if they do. 

    There are other insurmountable obstacles to be overcome.  How do you improve on perfection?   Islam can only be defiled, never improved. 

5:3. [...]This day, I have perfected your religion for you, completed My Favour upon you, and have chosen for you Islâm as your religion.[...]

    How do you change that which is compiled into a book, printed & widely published in many languages and strictly forbids  editing? 

6:115. And the Word of your Lord has been fulfilled in truth and in justice. None can change His Words. And He is the All­Hearer, the All­Knower.
10:64. [...]No change can there be in the Words of Allâh, this is indeed the supreme success.[...]

30:30. [...]No change let there be in Khalq­illâh (i.e. the Religion of Allâh Islâmic Monotheism), that is the straight religion, but most of men know not. [...]


    Moe confirmed the fatal fact with a curse.

Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 88, Number 174:

Narrated Sahl bin Sa'd:

I heard the Prophet saying, "I am your predecessor at the Lake-Fount (Kauthar), and whoever will come to it, will drink from it, and whoever will drink from it, will never become thirsty after that. There will come to me some people whom I know and they know me, and then a barrier will be set up between me and them." Abu Sa'id Al-Khudri added that the Prophet further said: "I will say those people are from me. It will be said, 'You do not know what changes and new things they did after you.' Then I will say, 'Far removed (from mercy), far removed (from mercy), those who changed (the religion) after me! "

    In another hadith, Moe cursed the Muslims with disgrace if they abandon warfare as a way of life exchanging it for trade or agriculture. 

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:

Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.

    Only a deluded fool or a liar will claim that Islam can be reformed to render it anodyne. It may go off track for brief periods, but Allah will send someone to return it to his path.

Sunan Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4278:

Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it.

Brilliant Orator; Damn Fool: Netanyahu Addresses Congress

Brilliant Orator; Damn Fool: Netanyahu Addresses Congress For those who missed the speech, MSNBC has a video which displays the P.M.'s passionate connection with his primary audience who responded with many standing ovations. 

    The speech is preceded by an advertisement and a news clip; I am not certain that I grabbed the correct embed code.


Visit msnbc.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

    A five page pdf file containing the prepared remarks was found here.  As is my habit, I will mark important parts with superscripts linked to an enumerated list of my comments. Clicking the superscripts will bring my comment into view, pressing your Backspace key will return to the text.


TUESDAY, MAY 24, 2011
Speech by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a Joint Meeting of the United States Congress
May 24, 2011
I am deeply honored by your warm welcome. And I am deeply honored that you have given me the
opportunity to address Congress a second time.
Mr. Vice President, do you remember the time we were the new kids in town?
And I do see a lot of old friends here. And I do see a lot of new friends of Israel here. Democrats and
Republicans alike.
Israel has no better friend than America1. And America has no better friend than Israel. We stand together to
defend democracy. We stand together to advance peace. We stand together to fight terrorism.
Congratulations America, Congratulations, Mr. President. You got bin Laden. Good riddance!2
In an unstable Middle East, Israel is the one anchor of stability. In a region of shifting alliances, Israel is
America’s unwavering ally. Israel has always been pro-American. Israel will always be pro-American.
My friends, you don’t need to do nation building in Israel. We’re already built. You don’t need to export
democracy to Israel. We’ve already got it. You don’t need to send American troops to defend Israel. We
defend ourselves. You’ve been very generous in giving us tools to do the job of defending Israel on our own.
Thank you all, and thank you President Obama, for your steadfast commitment to Israel’s security.3 I know
economic times are tough. I deeply appreciate this.
Support for Israel’s security is a wise investment in our common future. For an epic battle is now unfolding in
the Middle East, between tyranny and freedom.4 A great convulsion is shaking the earth from the Khyber
Pass to the Straits of Gibraltar. The tremors have shattered states and toppled governments. And we can all
see that the ground is still shifting. Now this historic moment holds the promise of a new dawn of freedom
and opportunity. Millions of young people are determined to change their future. We all look at them. They
muster courage. They risk their lives. They demand dignity. They desire liberty.
These extraordinary scenes in Tunis and Cairo, evoke those of Berlin and Prague in 1989. Yet as we share
their hopes, but we also must also remember that those hopes could be snuffed out as they were in Tehran
in 1979. You remember what happened then. The brief democratic spring in Iran was cut short by a
ferocious and unforgiving tyranny. This same tyranny smothered Lebanon’s democratic Cedar Revolution,
and inflicted on that long-suffering country, the medieval rule of Hezbollah.
So today, the Middle East stands at a fateful crossroads. Like all of you, I pray
that the peoples of the region choose the path less travelled, the path of liberty. No one knows what this
path consists of better than you. This path is not paved by elections alone. It is paved when governments
permit protests in town squares, when limits are placed on the powers of rulers5, when judges are beholden
to laws and not men, and when human rights cannot be crushed by tribal loyalties or mob rule.
Israel has always embraced this path, in the Middle East has long rejected it. In a region where women are
stoned, gays are hanged, Christians are persecuted, Israel stands out. It is different.
As the great English writer George Eliot predicted over a century ago, that once established, the Jewish
state will "shine like a bright star of freedom amid the despotisms of the East.” Well, she was right. We have
a free press, independent courts, an open economy, rambunctious parliamentary debates. You think you
guys are tough on one another in Congress? Come spend a day in the Knesset. Be my guest.
Courageous Arab protesters, are now struggling to secure these very same rights for their peoples, for their
societies.6 We're proud that over one million Arab citizens of Israel have been enjoying these rights for
decades. Of the 300 million Arabs in the Middle East and North Africa, only Israel’s Arab citizens enjoy real
democratic rights. I want you to stop for a second and think about that. Of those 300 million Arabs, less than
one-half of one-percent are truly free, and they're all citizens of Israel!
This startling fact reveals a basic truth: Israel is not what is wrong about the Middle East. Israel is what is
right about the Middle East.7
Israel fully supports the desire of Arab peoples in our region to live freely. We long for the day when Israel
will be one of many real democracies in the Middle East.
Fifteen years ago, I stood at this very podium, and said that democracy must start to take root in the Arab
World. Well, it's begun to take root.8This beginning holds the promise of a brilliant future of peace and
prosperity. For I believe that a Middle East that is genuinely democratic will be a Middle East truly at peace.9
But while we hope and work for the best, we must also recognize that powerful forces10 oppose this future.
They oppose modernity. They oppose democracy. They oppose peace.
Foremost among these forces is Iran. The tyranny in Tehran brutalizes its own people. It supports attacks
against American troops in Afghanistan and Iraq. It subjugates Lebanon and Gaza. It sponsors terror
worldwide.11
When I last stood here, I spoke of the dire consequences of Iran developing nuclear weapons. Now time is
running out, and the hinge of history may soon turn. For the greatest danger facing humanity could soon be
upon us: A militant Islamic regime armed with nuclear weapons.
Militant Islam12threatens the world. It threatens Islam. I have no doubt that it will ultimately be defeated. It will
eventually succumb to the forces of freedom and progress. But like other fanaticisms that were doomed to
fail, militant Islam could exact a horrific price from all of us before its inevitable demise.
A nuclear-armed Iran13 would ignite a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. It would give terrorists a nuclear
umbrella. It would make the nightmare of nuclear terrorism a clear and present danger throughout the world.
I want you to understand what this means. They could put the bomb anywhere. They could put it on a
missile. It could be on a container ship in a port, or in a suitcase on a subway.
Now the threat to my country cannot be overstated. Those who dismiss it are sticking their heads in the
sand. Less than seven decades after six million Jews were murdered, Iran's leaders deny the Holocaust of
the Jewish people, while calling for the annihilation of the Jewish state.
Leaders who spew such venom14, should be banned from every respectable forum on the planet. But there is
something that makes the outrage even greater: The lack of outrage. In much of the international
community, the calls for our destruction are met with utter silence. It is even worse because there are many
who rush to condemn Israel for defending itself against Iran’s terror proxies.
But not you. Not America.15 You have acted differently. You've condemned the Iranian regime for its genocidal
aims. You’ve passed tough sanctions against Iran. History will salute you America.
President Obama has said that the United States is determined to prevent Iran from developing nuclear
weapons. He successfully led the Security Council to adopt sanctions against Iran. You in Congress passed
even tougher sanctions. These words and deeds are vitally important.16
Yet the Ayatollah regime briefly suspended its nuclear program only once, in 2003, when it feared the
possibility of military action. That same year, Muammar Qadaffi gave up his nuclear weapons program, and
for the same reason. The more Iran believes that all options are on the table, the less the chance of
confrontation. This is why I ask you to continue to send an unequivocal message: That America will never
permit Iran to develop nuclear weapons.
As for Israel, if history has taught the Jewish people anything, it is that we must take calls for our destruction
seriously. We are a nation that rose from the ashes of the Holocaust. When we say never again, we mean
never again. 17Israel always reserves the right to defend itself.
My friends, while Israel will be ever vigilant in its defense, we will never give up on our quest for peace. I
guess we’ll give it up when we achieve it. Israel wants peace. Israel needs peace. We've achieved historic
peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan that have held up for decades.
I remember what it was like before we had peace. I was nearly killed in a firefight inside the Suez Canal. I
mean that literally. I battled terrorists along both banks of the Jordan River. Too many Israelis have lost
loved ones. I know their grief. I lost my brother.
So no one in Israel wants a return to those terrible days. The peace with Egypt and Jordan has long served
as an anchor of stability and peace in the heart of the Middle East.
This peace should be bolstered by economic and political support to all those who remain committed to
peace.18
The peace agreements with Egypt and Jordan are vital. But they're not enough. We must also find a way to
forge a lasting peace with the Palestinians19. Two years ago, I publicly committed to a solution of two states
for two peoples: A Palestinian state alongside the Jewish state20.
I am willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace21. As the leader of Israel, it is my
responsibility to lead my people to peace.
This is not easy for me. I recognize that in a genuine peace, we will be required to give up parts of the
Jewish homeland. In Judea and Samaria, the Jewish people are not foreign occupiers.22 We are not the
British in India. We are not the Belgians in the Congo.
This is the land of our forefathers, the Land of Israel, to which Abraham brought the idea of one God, where
David set out to confront Goliath, and where Isaiah saw a vision of eternal peace. No distortion of history
can deny the four thousand year old bond, between the Jewish people and the Jewish land.
But there is another truth: The Palestinians share this small land with us. We seek a peace in which they will
be neither Israel’s subjects nor its citizens. They should enjoy a national life of dignity as a free, viable and
independent people in their own state.23 They should enjoy a prosperous economy, where their creativity and
initiative can flourish.
We've already seen the beginnings of what is possible. In the last two years,
the Palestinians have begun to build a better life for themselves. Prime Minister Fayad has led this effort. I
wish him a speedy recovery from his recent operation.
We've helped the Palestinian economy by removing hundreds of barriers and roadblocks24 to the free flow of
goods and people. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. The Palestinian economy is
booming. It's growing by more than 10% a year.
Palestinian cities look very different today than they did just a few years ago. They have shopping malls,
movie theaters, restaurants, banks. They even have e-businesses. This is all happening without peace.
Imagine what could happen with peace. Peace would herald a new day for both peoples. It would make the
dream of a broader Arab-Israeli peace a realistic possibility.
So now here is the question. You have to ask it. If the benefits of peace with the Palestinians are so clear,
why has peace eluded us? Because all six Israeli Prime Ministers since the signing of Oslo accords agreed
to establish a Palestinian state. Myself included. So why has peace not been achieved? Because so far, the
Palestinians have been unwilling to accept a Palestinian state, if it meant accepting a Jewish state alongside
it.
You see, our conflict has never been about the establishment of a Palestinian state. It has always been
about the existence of the Jewish state.25 This is what this conflict is about. In 1947, the United Nations voted
to partition the land into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews said yes. The Palestinians said no. In
recent years, the Palestinians twice refused generous offers by Israeli Prime Ministers, to establish a
Palestinian state on virtually all the territory won by Israel in the Six Day War.
They were simply unwilling to end the conflict. And I regret to say this: They continue to educate their
children to hate.26 They continue to name public squares after terrorists. And worst of all, they continue to
perpetuate the fantasy that Israel will one day be flooded by the descendants of Palestinian refugees.
My friends, this must come to an end. President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people,
and I told you it wasn’t easy for me, and I said… "I will accept a Palestinian state."27 It is time for President
Abbas to stand before his people and say… "I will accept a Jewish state."28
Those six words will change history. They will make clear to the Palestinians that this conflict must come to
an end. That they are not building a state to continue the conflict with Israel, but to end it. They will convince
the people of Israel that they have a true partner for peace.29 With such a partner, the people of Israel will be
prepared to make a far reaching compromise. I will be prepared to make a far reaching compromise.
This compromise must reflect the dramatic demographic changes that have occurred since 1967. The vast
majority of the 650,000 Israelis who live beyond the 1967 lines, reside in neighborhoods and suburbs of
Jerusalem and Greater Tel Aviv.
These areas are densely populated but geographically quite small. Under any realistic peace agreement,
these areas, as well as other places of critical strategic and national importance, will be incorporated into the
final borders of Israel.
The status of the settlements will be decided only in negotiations. But we must also be honest. So I am
saying today something that should be said publicly by anyone serious about peace. In any peace
agreement that ends the conflict, some settlements will end up beyond Israel’s borders. The precise
delineation of those borders must be negotiated. We will be very generous on the size of a future Palestinian
state. But as President Obama said, the border will be different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967.
Israel will not return to the indefensible lines of 1967.
We recognize that a Palestinian state must be big enough to be viable, independent and prosperous.
President Obama rightly referred to Israel as the homeland of the Jewish people, just as he referred to the
future Palestinian state as the homeland of the Palestinian people. Jews from around the world have a right
to immigrate to the Jewish state. Palestinians from around the world should have a right to immigrate, if they
so choose, to a Palestinian state. This means that the Palestinian refugee problem will be resolved outside
the borders of Israel.
As for Jerusalem, only a democratic Israel has protected freedom of worship for all faiths in the city30.
Jerusalem must never again be divided. Jerusalem must remain the united capital of Israel. I know that this
is a difficult issue for Palestinians. But I believe with creativity and goodwill a solution can be found.
This is the peace I plan to forge with a Palestinian partner committed to peace. But you know very well, that
in the Middle East, the only peace that will hold is a peace you can defend.31
So peace must be anchored in security. In recent years, Israel withdrew from South Lebanon and Gaza. But
we didn't get peace. Instead, we got 12,000 thousand rockets fired from those areas on our cities, on our
children, by Hezbollah and Hamas. The UN peacekeepers in Lebanon failed to prevent the smuggling of this
weaponry. The European observers in Gaza evaporated overnight. So if Israel simply walked out of the
territories, the flow of weapons into a future Palestinian state would be unchecked. Missiles fired from it
could reach virtually every home in Israel in less than a minute. I want you to think about that too. Imagine
that right now we all had less than 60 seconds to find shelter from an incoming rocket. Would you live that
way? Would anyone live that way? Well, we aren’t going to live that way either.32
The truth is that Israel needs unique security arrangements because of its unique size. Israel is one of the
smallest countries in the world. Mr. Vice President, I'll grant you this. It’s bigger than Delaware. It’s even
bigger than Rhode Island. But that’s about it. Israel on the 1967 lines would be half the width of the
Washington Beltway.
Now here’s a bit of nostalgia. I first came to Washington thirty years ago as a young diplomat. It took me a
while, but I finally figured it out: There is an America beyond the Beltway. But Israel on the 1967 lines would
be only nine miles wide. So much for strategic depth.
So it is therefore absolutely vital for Israel’s security that a Palestinian state be fully demilitarized. And it is
vital that Israel maintain a long-term military presence along the Jordan River. Solid security arrangements
on the ground are necessary not only to protect the peace, they are necessary to protect Israel in case the
peace unravels. For in our unstable region, no one can guarantee that our peace partners today will be there
tomorrow.33
And when I say tomorrow, I don't mean some distant time in the future. I mean -- tomorrow. Peace can be
achieved only around the negotiating table. The Palestinian attempt to impose a settlement through the
United Nations will not bring peace. It should be forcefully opposed by all those who want to see this conflict
end.
I appreciate the President’s clear position on this issue. Peace cannot be imposed. It must be negotiated.
But it can only be negotiated with partners committed to peace.34
And Hamas is not a partner for peace. Hamas remains committed to Israel's destruction and to terrorism.
They have a charter. That charter not only calls for the obliteration of Israel, but says ‘kill the Jews wherever
you find them’. Hamas’ leader condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden and praised him as a holy warrior.
Now again I want to make this clear. Israel is prepared to sit down today and negotiate peace with the
Palestinian Authority.35 I believe we can fashion a brilliant future of peace for our children. But Israel will not
negotiate with a Palestinian government backed by the Palestinian version of Al Qaeda.36
So I say to President Abbas: Tear up your pact with Hamas! Sit down and negotiate! Make peace with the
Jewish state! And if you do, I promise you this. Israel will not be the last country to welcome a Palestinian
state as a new member of the United Nations. It will be the first to do so.37
My friends, the momentous trials of the last century, and the unfolding events of this century, attest to the
decisive role of the United States in advancing peace and defending freedom. Providence entrusted the
United States to be the guardian of liberty. All peoples who cherish freedom owe a profound debt of
gratitude to your great nation. Among the most grateful nations is my nation, the people of Israel, who have
fought for their liberty and survival against impossible odds, in ancient and modern times alike.
I speak on behalf of the Jewish people and the Jewish state when I say to you, representatives of America,
Thank you. Thank you for your unwavering support for Israel. Thank you for ensuring that the flame of
freedom burns bright throughout the world. May God bless all of you. And may God forever bless the United
States of America.


  1. With friends like America, who needs enemies? A series of American Presidents have let Israel down and sabotaged her, beginning with Carter. Obama must be numbered among the enemies of Israel. The Congress and electorate are friends of Israel, but they don't make our foreign policy.
  2. That is a prime example of meaningless emotional bonding, much too shallow. "Getting" Usama, while necessary, is insufficient.
  3. That statement should have been dripping with sarcasm, I failed to detect any. Obama is not committed to Israel's security, far from it.
  4. The real battle is between tyrants, not between tyranny and liberty.  Those who seek liberty are an insignificant minority, unlikely to prevail.
  5. Netanyahu brought out one crucial point concealed by Obama: the necessity of limited government. Without it, libertarian revolts are doomed to failure.
  6. One crucial element is missing: acknowledgment of the fact that those rights are contradicted by Islam; the two are incompatible.
  7. That brilliant statement of the blindingly obvious truth is a slap in the face to the E.U. & U.N. It should be restated early and often.
  8. Until Islam is removed, the seed will fall upon rocks and be consumed by birds or scorched by the sun. It can not sprout and blossom until Islam is eliminated.
  9. Peace is not a function of democracy. Democracy and aggression are not mutually exclusive. Democracies will only be peaceful if their electorates want peace and eschew aggression.
  10. The powerful force which opposes peace & freedom is Islam. Netanyahu should have named it.
  11. Why does Iran oppose liberty and sponsor terrorism? What "powerful force" motivates those policies?  "Its Islam, stupid!".
  12. If you thought my headline was outrageous, now you will learn the reason, its in that statement: "militant Islam" "Its Islam, stupid!". The name stands alone, without adjectives, qualifiers or modifiers. "Its Islam, stupid!". Islam's purpose is the accrual of power, wealth & income. Its method is martial. These fatal facts are fully documented in another blog post: Islam's Mercenary Mission, there you will find the relevant ayat & ahadith quoted and linked. Islam is militant by definition.
  13. Pakistan already has the bomb. It is just a matter of time before the regime falls to those more ready to use the bomb Nobody is willing to take effective action against Iran to prevent it from building a nuke.
  14. The leadership of Iran is not the problem. Its Islam, stupid!". Open the Qur'an to 9:29 and read itRead JM Rodwell's translation for its outstanding clarity. Turn next to 7:167Who will Allah send to torment the Jews?  Next, read Sahih Bukhari 4.52.177Iran did not invent Islamic genocide of Jews. Who did?  For the answer, turn to 8:67.
  15. Every time Israel counter attacks, our President demands "restraint". Have you so soon forgotten the bitter bitching about "Cast Lead"?
  16. Those sanctions are necessary and insufficient. Iran's nuke program must be destroyed by military force.
  17. This line had strong emphasis in the video and for good reason.  There is no reason why Israel should submit to genocide.
  18. A nice retroactive swipe at Obama's support for the revolt against Mubarak.  It will probably be misinterpreted to support paying tribute to the new Muslim Brotherhood regime.
  19. Islam does not make lasting peace, only ten year hudnas, which are contracts at will, subject to revocation when the Muslims gain sufficient strength to renew their aggression.
  20. They do not want a state, if they did, they would have accepted the partition plan in '47 instead of waging war against Israel. They want Israel destroyed and the Jews massacred. Nothing less will satisfy their blood lust. Besides which, they are not a people, they are undifferentiated Arabs from Egypt & Syria.
  21. Compromising, negotiating & appeasing Islam result in more aggression, not in peace. All such gestures are perceived as signs of weakness, which emboldens the predator. Land for "peace" is a fool's bargain, you will have neither land nor peace.
  22. A rarely stated truth: Jews are occupied, not occupying. Few will accept that fact.
  23. It is called Jordan.
  24. When you remove check points and security barriers, Jews die as a result, not a wise move.
  25. In a previous blog post:Victory: the Path to Peace.  I detailed the Islamic foundation of violence against Israel. Rejectionism is about Allah's promise of victory and his failure to make it permanent. Israel's recovery of stolen hand and Islamic failure to reconquer it proves Allah to be an impotent idol. Muslims can not tolerate that blasphemous reality.
  26. Inculcating hate in the schools is an egregious violation of the Oslo Accords. While that violation continues, no new negotiation should be started.
  27. A foolish act of treason against Israel and the human race.
  28. The demand is impossible. Even if possible, no such statement could be trusted by any sentient person. Tolerance of Israel is tantamount to apostasy.
  29. In that case, the people of Israel would be damned fools, doomed to destruction and they would deserve it. Islam is a lie and Muslims are liars. Arafat talked peace in English to the press and war in Arabic to his brethren.
  30. That is a damned lie. Jews and Christians are restricted in their access to the Temple Mount and arrested if they attempt to pray there.
  31. Cognitive dissonance is right on the surface of that statement, easily seen and recognized. If Muslims wanted peace, the conflict would end. Instead, they want victory and expanded conquest.  Peace must be complete, absolute, exclusive and permanent. It can not exist while Muslims are Hellbent on world conquest. 
  32. Then start expelling Muslims from the land of Israel, send them home, far beyond your borders. Rocket fire will only stop when there are no living Muslims within rocket range.
  33. More cognitive dissonance: he knows that peace is impossible but he can't confess his knowledge, he can only vaguely imply it.
  34. Cognitive dissonance is clearly evident. We all know blessed well that Abbas has no interest in peace: "from the river to the sea".  Israel has no partner for peace, never had one and never will.
  35. What do HAMAS and P.A. have in common? They are Muslims. They believe the same crap. They observe the same "religious obligation" to make annual military attacks against disbelievers.  "Its Islam, stupid!".  How can Netanyahu be so damned stupid?! 
  36. Al-Qaeda, HAMAS Muslim Brotherhood & Islam are one. They are all the same. Read the HAMAS  Charter. "The Islamic Resistance Movement: The Movement's programme is Islam. From it, it draws its ideas, ways of thinking and understanding of the universe, life and man. It resorts to it for judgement in all its conduct, and it is inspired by it for guidance of its steps." ... "Allah is its target, the Prophet is its model, the Koran its constitution: Jihad is its path and death for the sake of Allah is the loftiest of its wishes."  Anyone having a brain located outside of his anus should be able to comprehend the obvious identity. Al-Qaeda and HAMAS are Al-Ikhwan offshoots. The HAMAS Charter echoes that of the Brotherhood.  Get a clue, for Chrissake!!! Why in Hell is it called the Muslim Brotherhood?  "Its Islam, stupid!"!!!
  37. Idiot! There are 57 Islamic members outvoting us already, we don't need any more!!  Such stupidity is incomprehensible.
