Jihadist whistleblowers, Walid Shoebat and Kamal Saleem, reveal 'Cultural Jihad' more effective than terrorism
Prejudicially censored by YouTube: "Walid Shoebat: learn from my journey from terrorism to humanism".

Lebanese-born, Islamist whistleblower, Kamal Saleem , author of "The Blood of Lambs," reveals the genuine threat that political Islamism presents. He warns of the 'culture jihad' being conducted by Islamist organizations such as CAIR and the Muslim Students Association to move the West towards Islamism's cultural, and political imperialism.
The Muslim Students Association protested outside Royce Hall, but would not attend to debate either Mr. Saleem or Walid Shoebat directly about any of their claims. They did not hesitate to protest to YouTube to remove the video of Walid Shoebat- alleging his remarks are racist- and YouTube complied.

Islamist demonstrators outside UCLA attempted to discredit Walid Shoebat's ex-terrorist credibility (rather than his accusations about cultural Jihad) to the audience of 500 attendees.
'Muslim racism toward any Jewish state is root of Arab Israeli conflict - reform key to peace,' claims Egyptian reformist, Dr. Tawfik Hamid
Featured in new documentary film, The Third Jihad, Egyptian physician Dr. Tawfik Hamid (author of Inside Jihad) confesses the uncomfortable truth which Washington (and the West) is reluctant to confront that:
Palestine statehood isn't the true obstacle to peace between Arabs and Israel. Peace will require confronting Islamic culture to publicly reform its dogma that Jews (and Israel, the Zionist state) are a religiously inferior culture, only meant to be subjugated.
The Palestinian conflict is a red-herring, he claims, which the Muslim world foments in its long-term objective of weakening the Jewish state (as a proxy of the global, non-Muslim essence) towards eventual annihilation. He teaches that the Obama administration and the U.N. should maintain a strong, not appeasing, policy against Islamist extremism.
Interpreting today's American and Israeli post-meeting press conference, the Jerusalem Post's Editor in Chief David Horovitz doesn't find much agreement in Obama lays down the law ...
This was a meeting of unequals, a meeting in which the head of the world's most powerful nation, however battered of late, firmly asserted its primacy in the face of a supplicant ally, however feisty. ...
Netanyahu heard no deadline from Obama on the limits of engagement, just a vague presidential reference to the notion that, by year's end, the administration "should have some sense" of whether Teheran was responding to his carrots where it had ignored the Bush presidency's rhetorical sticks.
Worse, Netanyahu heard no presidential mention of the possibility of military action, not even as a last resort. Instead, Obama reached out to the Iranians, saying he sought to "persuade them that it is not in their interest to pursue a nuclear weapon and that they should change course."
And if they chose to ignore him?
"We are not foreclosing a range of steps..." said Obama - and here Netanyahu would have been waiting with bated breath, only to be disappointed - "... including much stronger international sanctions." ...
Where Netanyahu holds that there's little prospect of substantive progress with the Palestinians so long as Iran is traveling along the nuclear path and emboldening Hamas and Islamists everywhere, Obama flatly said the opposite.
"If there is a linkage between Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process," he mused, "I personally believe it actually runs the other way. To the extent that we can make peace with the Palestinians - between the Palestinians and the Israelis - then I actually think it strengthens our hand in the international community in dealing with the potential Iranian threat."
He elaborated, "Imagine how much less mischief Hizbullah or Hamas could do if, in fact, we had moved a Palestinian-Israeli track in a direction that gave the Palestinian people hope. And if Hizbullah and Hamas [are] weakened, imagine how that impacts Iran's ability to make mischief and vice versa."
Netanyahu attempted to make the best of a very bad job, beginning by praising Obama to the skies as a "great leader" and a "great friend of Israel."

New York - The eyes of the world are on Washington, as two allied world leaders – Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and U.S. President Barack Obama – prepare to meet on Monday.
Some Arab states are already on the war path. Arab leaders are going on the record, demanding in strong language that President Obama order Israel to fall in line behind Saudi King Abdullah's two-state "Arab peace plan." The plan, which calls for a two-state solution, is supported by the 22-state Arab League. In contention is the plan's "right of return" provision, which would give millions of Arab refugees the right to live in Israel and eventually, through demographics, convert the Jewish state to an Arab country with a Jewish minority.
Many, including Middle East expert and historian Daniel Pipes, believe in the "no state" option – return the territories to Egypt and Jordan, who have peace treaties with Israel. Neither side, Dr. Pipes recently wrote, wishes for Israeli control to continue. And a Palestinian state has thus far been a "toxic brew of anarchy, ideological extremism, Jihadism and warlordism [that] led to complete Palestinian failure." Given, "the two populations' mutual antipathy, the prospect of a combined Israel-Palestine is as absurd as it seems." A shared Jordanian-Egyptian rule, he said, "worked tolerably well in the period 1948-1967."
Jordan's King Abdullah warns there will be a war in the Middle East by the end of next year if an Arab Palestinian state is not created this year. He noted in a Times of London interview, that "a third of the world does not recognize Israel." "Obama," he said, "is committed to the two-state solution now. He feels the urgency of the need to move today." The king believes President Obama will announce a peace plan after meeting with Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu. If peace efforts aren't successful, King Abdullah says, "we're going to have a war."
King Abdullah of Jordan says the world must see Israel for what it is. Israel is the first democracy in the Middle East and an ally of the United States. Yes, the Palestinian people have suffered. And so have the people of Israel proper. Israel has protected its people from murderous suicide attacks by implementing security fences, checkpoints and settlements. And it has taken the initiative for peace by withdrawing from Gaza.
After repeated rejections of peace plans during the Carter and Bush administrations, the Israelis turned over Gaza to its Israeli-Arab residents to self-rule. Gaza is no longer occupied today except, arguably, by Iran and al Qaeda. But what was the result of Israel's disengagement from Gaza? Iranian smuggling of weapons and foreign fighters into Gaza, a strengthening of the terror group Hamas, the destruction of businesses, and more rocket attacks upon Israel-proper.
The Jewish state pursued phased withdrawals, while the Palestinian Authority has failed to fulfill the security commitments agreed to in the 1993 Oslo Accords – to disarm and dismantle terrorist groups.
The Gaza experiment failed and resulted in an armed conflict – Operation Cast Lead – where Israel aimed to halt those illicit activities. The same failures should not be repeated in the West Bank. Iran and the U.S. State Department designated terror group Hamas should not be permitted to take over the West Bank. Consequently, more preparation of the territories is required for statehood, if that is the path taken.
Israel's Prime Minister Netanyahu stated Israel's viewpoint on May 4th, via a satellite broadcast to over 6,500 attendees of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee's (AIPAC, America's pro-Israeli lobby) annual conference. He spoke of a triple track to peace, consisting of political, security, and economic initiatives:
Political – "resume peace negotiations without delay and without any preconditions; the sooner, the better"
Security – "strengthen the security apparatus of the Palestinians"
Economic – "work together to remove as many obstacles as we can, to the advancement of the Palestinian economy"
Prime Minister Netanyahu said, too, that peace can not come without security. And, "for a final peace settlement to be achieved, the Palestinians must recognize Israel as the Jewish state."
As a man seeking peace and the right to life for his country – "a future that means that there is prosperity for all" – PM Netanyahu seeks rational thought and a common sense approach to peace in the region.
The challenge to the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab League is to embrace dual Jewish and Arab states living in peace as a shared goal with Israel and support the strengthening of Palestinian institutions. Failure to do so would demonstrate a lack of sincerity in achieving peace in the region and a lack of support for the Palestinian Authority.
"We can defy the skeptics; we can surprise the world."
– Benjamin Netanyahu
Leftist "human-rights" activists ignore Islamists to taunt AIPAC conventioneers with Hamas propaganda
The IDF Spokesperson's Unit tells DemoCast: During Operation Cast Lead, 1,166 Palestinians were killed during Cast Lead, 709 of whom were Hamas operatives. 162 additional men between the ages of 15-50 whose affiliations were not identified. Only 295 non-combatants died, among them just 89 under the age of 16 and 49 women.
It is important to remember that Hamas regularly recruits youth from as young as 12 years of age to engage in terrorist activities, especially young boys. And that young men are routinely used to operate smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza – the primary means of bringing weapons into Gaza.
Leftist "peace" advocates selectively protest safety for Jews against Jihadists.
During Cast Lead, the IDF targeted sites that were used for terror purposes. Mosques, schools, hospitals and the roughly 1,800 UN sites located inside of the Gaza strip were all designated on IDF maps. Roughly a dozen mosques were targeted by the IDF over the course of the operation, they were targeted because intelligence information indicated that they were used for terror purposes, either for storing weapons, or as rocket launching sites.
Hamas regularly exploits civilians and civilian infrastructure (be it schools, hospitals, public buildings, zoos or religious sites), choosing to turn residential neighborhoods into urban battlegrounds, in order to provide cover for their terrorist activities. They often shoot rockets from sites adjacent to such buildings, or use these places to store weapons, or hide, in order to complicate the fighting and exploit the IDF's reluctance to damage civilian or religious infrastructure.
Radical American Black Muslim's bigotry overlooked by Obama-charmed, Irvine Muslim students, faculty - not by Jews
A DemoCast exclusive production. Demagogic hate-monger inculcates Muslims with bigotry (calling Jews 'Satanic'); then slams Jews for requiring Israel sanctuary from hateful Muslim world. Imam Abdul Malik Ali of Oakland's anti-Semitic, Black Muslim "Vanguard of Islam" mosque takes a page from Hitler's Jerusalem Mufti's Muslim anti-Semitism toward attaining power. Mission of replacing democracies with caliphate resonates with (alleged) Muslim Brotherhood affiliated Muslim Students Union at University of California in Irvine.
"I want to thank all of you for your unwavering support for Israel and for strengthening the great friendship between Israel and the United States. As you said, I have met President Obama. I respect him, and I look forward to seeing him in Washington in a couple of weeks. We plan to continue our common quest for security, for prosperity, and for peace."

Friends, there is something significant that is happening today in the Middle East. And I can say that for the first time in my lifetime -- I believe that for the first time in a century -- that Arabs and Jews see a common danger. This wasn't always the case. In the '30s and '40s, many of the Arab world supported another country, believing that that was their hope. In the '60s and '70s, '80s, they supported another country that was at odds with the Jewish state. But this is no longer the case.
There is a great challenge afoot; but that challenge also presents great opportunities. The common danger is echoed by Arab leaders throughout the Middle East; it's echoed by Israel repeatedly. It's echoed by Europeans, by many responsible governments around the world. And if I had to sum it in one sentence, it is this: Iran must not be allowed to develop nuclear weapons.
If I had to sum up the opportunity in one word, it would be cooperation -- cooperation
between Israel and the Arab world, and cooperation between Israel and the Palestinians. Next week I'll be visiting Egypt with President Mubarak, and I plan to discuss both values with him. We seek expanded relations with the Arab world. We want normalization of economic ties and diplomatic ties. We want peace with the Arab world. But we also want peace with the Palestinians. That peace has eluded us for more than 13 years. Six successive prime ministers and two American presidents have not succeeded in achieving this final peace settlement. I believe it's possible to achieve it. But I think it requires a fresh approach. And the fresh approach
that I suggest is pursuing a triple-track towards peace between Israel and the Palestinians; a political track, a security track, and an economic track.
A political track means that we're prepared to resume peace negotiations without any delay and without any preconditions; the sooner, the better. The security track means that we want to continue the cooperation with the program led by General Dayton in cooperation with the Jordanians and with the Palestinian Authority to strengthen the security apparatus of the Palestinians. This is something we believe in, and something that I think we can advance in a joint effort.
The economic track means that we are prepared to work together to remove as many obstacles as we can, to the advancement of the Palestinian economy. We want to work with the Palestinian Authority on this track, not as a substitute for political negotiations, but as a boost to them. I want to see Palestinian youngsters knowing that they have a future. I want them not to be hostage to a cult of death and despair and hate. I want them to have jobs. I want them to have career paths. I want them to know that they can provide for their families. This means that we can give
them a future of hope; a future that means that there is prosperity for all, and this has proved to be successful in advancing a political piece in many parts of the world.
I believe that this triple track towards peace is the realistic path to peace. And I believe that with the cooperation of President Obama and President Abbas, we can defy the skeptics; we can surprise the world.
But there are two provisos that I think have to be said at this point. First, peace will not come without security. If we abandon security, we'll have never security nor peace. So I want to be very clear. We shall never compromise on Israel's security. Second, for a final peace settlement to be achieved, the Palestinians must recognize Israel as the Jewish state. They must recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people.
A few hours ago I spoke at the Knesset. We mark the birthday of Theodore Herzl, the founding father of Zionism. Herzl revolutionized the history of the Jewish people; a people that were scattered and defenseless throughout the nations. He revolutionized Jewish history when he published a slim pamphlet called The Jewish State. This was our salvation, and this is our foundation; the foundation of our future and the foundation of peace.
Good night from Jerusalem. God bless America. God bless Israel. Thank you all."
