Opponents rally to stop Obama's "Worse than Munich" Islamist Iran appeasement

Second Take on Iran by AIPAC: Congress Must Stop this Bad Deal

A second statement by AIPAC following review of the Iran agreement brings a strong thumbs down on the deal. 'A new, better deal is needed'

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee says in a statement that Obama's Iran nuclear deal falls short on all five areas it had concluded were critical: inspections, possible military dimensions, sanctions, duration and dismantlement.

The deal, AIPAC told its membership, “would facilitate rather than prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and would further entrench and empower the leading state sponsor of terror.”

AIPAC concluded that the deal would further destabilize the Middle East, including encouraging an arms race in the region.

In contradiction to what the negotiators and President Obama told the nation, AIPAC insisted that the alternative to the proposed deal is not war.

Calling on its members to inform their legislative representatives, AIPAC said the agreement must be rejected and sanctions on Iran must be maintained while efforts are made to negotiate “a better deal that will truly close off all Iranian paths to a nuclear weapon.”  (Lori Lowenthal Marcus in the Jewish Press).

Co-sponsor of Iran sanctions legislation, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA) explains Iran is following the North Korea playbook and that sanctions must be used to bring Iran's regime to its knees.

The White House says Biden will discuss the deal with the Democratic members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin, the top Democrat on the committee, invited Biden to brief his party's senators.

The meeting will come a day after Biden made a similar pitch during a meeting with House Democrats. Biden has also been calling lawmakers, including Senate leaders, to discuss the deal.

Congress will have a 60-day window to review the deal and could pass legislation stopping Obama from lifting sanctions on Iran. The White House is focusing its outreach on Democrats in hopes they'll provide enough votes to stop Republicans from overriding Obama's likely veto.

Israeli Amb. Michael Oren "Ally" book tour video - revealing the secrets behind the spin

Former Israeli Amb. to US Michael Oren at Nixon Library July 2, '15
In his revealing auto-biography, "Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide," American-born Michael Oren discusses his experience becoming appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to work with the Obama administration as Israel's ambassador to the U.S. 


Recorded before an audience at L.A.'s Museum of Tolerance, in a speech and conversation with David Suissa of the Jewish Journal of Los Angeles. July 1, 2015.



Above, Amb. Oren fields a broad range of questions from the audience (in two segments).

David Bernstein in the Washington Post refers to "How Israel Got Taken" a review of the book by Michael Doran in Mosaic Magazine. Doran claims that "Netanyahu undertook, at American insistence, an unprecedented settlement freeze, became the first Likud prime minister to endorse the establishment of a Palestinian state, and refrained from engaging in military action against Iran. He might have added that Netanyahu released hundreds of terrorist murderers to further John Kerry’s misbegotten “peace process.” While Netanyahu hasn’t always behaved well, even when he did the White House’s bidding he was met solely with contempt, more contempt than the Obama Administration has shown for any other foreign leader. That would be okay, if one really trusted Obama on the one issue key to Israeli security (and, in my opinion, key to the security of the entire Middle East and therefore to American security), preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons."

Israeli cartoon shames biased Foreign Press Assoc reportage, eliciting grumbles

By William Booth in Washington Post 6/15/2015 

Israel’s Foreign Ministry released an animated short video Monday that mocks foreign journalists who covered last summer's war in the Gaza Strip. The hacks are portrayed -- horrors -- as clueless.

The short clip, produced in-house by the ministry, was prominently featured Monday on the home page of the diplomatic service.

The release of the cartoon by the government comes a day after Israel issued a broad defense of how the country waged the war in the Gaza Strip last summer, making a case that Israel sought to minimize civilian casualties as the Islamist movement Hamas put its people in the line of fire and cynically used the ensuing death and destruction to stoke anti-Israel propaganda.

The Times of Israel reports that the clip drew a harsh condemnation from the Foreign Press Association in Israel.

The Foreign Press Association in Israel said that it was “surprised and alarmed” by the clip “mocking the foreign media’s coverage of last year’s war in Gaza.

“At a time when Israel has serious issues to deal with in Iran and Syria, it is disconcerting that the ministry would spend its time producing a 50-second video that attempts to ridicule journalists reporting on a conflict in which 2,100 Palestinians and 72 Israelis were killed,” the FPA said in a statement Monday.

“Israel’s diplomatic corps wants to be taken seriously in the world. Posting misleading and poorly conceived videos on YouTube is inappropriate, unhelpful and undermines the ministry, which says it respects the foreign press and its freedom to work in Gaza,” the statement said.




But the Foreign Ministry said the cartoon should be taken as a lighthearted jab.

“The film mocks many journalists with a gentle wink, too many of whom are blind to what is happening around them,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told reporter Noga Tarnopolsky.

Quite a few journalists who were in Gaza did not report the rocket fire in residential areas in proximity of public buildings. Only after the operation and after leaving Gaza were these materials released and was real information about what they saw revealed.

“Thus, these journalists admitted they did not report what they saw. What is the reason for this? Fear of Hamas? A lack of willingness to tell the truth?” he added, according to Tarnopolsky, who quoted the statement in a series of tweets Monday evening.

Americans commemorate freedom's sacrifices at Memorial Day ceremony; Attendees applaud Admiral's call to save humanity from Islamism

Memorial Day 2015 ceremony: The National Cemetery in L.A. honors veterans and their families with final resting places in national shrines and with lasting tributes that commemorate their service and sacrifice to our nation. 

Although many of the attendees had lost family or colleagues in the military, keynote speaker, retired US Navy Rear Admiral Len Hering, spoke not of pacifism, but of vigilance to defend liberty from Islamism. 

"Today we fight a global war against an enemy that knows no borders, flies no particular flag, that applies no set of rules. They do not value life as we do, and they are willing to target innocent women and children to prove a point and cause us to withdraw. This is a situation that we cannot, for the sake of our future, allow to happen," Hering declared.
