Israeli leaders and supporters overcome illiberal antagonism to educate at AIPAC Conference. But to where is Obama leading Netanyahu?

The annual Aipac Policy Conference is a forum that educates about competing narratives regarding the Israel-Palestine and Arab-Israeli conflict- both inside and outside the convention hall. DemoCast exposes far-leftists to be ill-informed agitators. Aipac takes the high-road to enable Israeli and Middle East experts to present their messages- with appreciation from those in attendance.

Caroline Glick opines in the Jerusalem Post:
Obama’s now undeniable antipathy for Israel and his apparent willingness to use his power as American president to harm Israel at the UN and elsewhere guarantee that for the duration of his tenure in office, Israel will face unprecedented threats to its security. This disturbing reality ought to focus the attention of all Israelis and of the American Jewish community. With the leader of the free world now openly siding with forces bent on Israel’s destruction, the need for unity has become acute.

Obama and Netanyahu to meet; each will address AIPAC Policy Conference; L.A. demonstrators reveal obstacles

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will meet with President Barack Obama in Washington on Friday. Jewish-Americans gathering for the annual AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington Sunday will be addressed by Pres. Obama on Sunday, then Prime Minister Netanyahu on Monday. Following meeting with Jordan's King Abdullah today, President Obama is renewing his pressing Israel to facilitate a state for Palestinian Arabs. But what kind of safety would a Palestinian sovereignty provide Jews - after a generation of irredentist Palestinian inculcation to liberate all former Mandate Palestine - sponsored by Islamist imperialists?



A small group of Zionistic Christians and Jews received and returned the vitriol cast by a Nakba rally comprised of Moslems, the far-left, and leftist Jewish Voice for Peace- staged outside the Israeli Consulate in L.A., on Sunday, May 15, 2011.

As DemoCast's news-video reveals, participants voiced their concerns about each-other's side and intentions. An Iranian Jewish refugee decries Islam's mistreatment of religious and cultural minorities. A Palestinian refugee bemoans the Arab refugees still yearning to return from refugee camps to their former homes, and curses the Jews who returned to Israel as a refuge for Jews.

At Israel's Herzliya Policy Conference '09, economist Daniel Doron spoke with us to convey the history of the establishment of the modern states of the Middle East, both Arab and Jewish, with details of Israel's legitimate founding and legal rights of the territory on which Jews reside.




Daniel Doron explains his concern for the safety of Jews in Judea and Samaria, and for the threat which a Palestinian state would pose at this time to the safety of Israel's citizens.

Lessons of the preservation of Israeli sovereignty

Jacob Dayan addresses Holocaust Remembrance survivors on
panel with Mayor Villaraigosa & LA County Sheriff Lee Baca
World Jewry commemorated Holocaust Remembrance Day last week. Israel, the sovereign Jewish refuge, commemorates Israel Memorial Day on Monday May 9th. The events are intertwined with Israel's Independence celebration of May 10th. Israel's re-establishment stands as a testament to the potential for unchecked tyranny - and the need for a safe homeland against Hitler's never-deterred, Jew-hating partners of the Arab/Muslim world.




Jacob Dayan, outgoing Israeli Consul General to Los Angeles addressed the Holocaust Remembrance Day assembly on May 8, 2011.



Diplomats from Germany, Poland, & France stand
with survivors of their oppression - against current evils
Mr. Dayan said, "To the foreign diplomats attending: if you believe in human dignity, that people were born equal, and that you should do your utmost to prevent another holocaust, (attending diplomts) all of us here ask you to stand up with us. Please stand up Germany, Poland, Turkey, France! All of you here who represent your countries - nations of the free world - you have to stand-up against evil. It is your responsibility to prevent this horror again. Your responsibility to prevent future Hitlers and Ahmadinejad from destroying other people and other nations. Silence is not an option again.

The world should listen, learn, and act - to make sure that this crime will never again happen - neither to the Jewish people nor to any other people.

Yes, my friends, this is the power of our people, and this is power of our nation, Israel, the nation of the Jewish people that fights every day for every Jewish soul, all over the world- as we did from generation to generation. Because for us, the Jews, every hand has a name."

Beginning the night of Monday 9 May, Israel celebrates the commemoration of its independence. Israel stands as a testament against tyranny and the world's oldest hatred- anti-Semitism.

Memorial Day in Israel: 22,867 Fallen by Maayana Miskin (Israel National News)
A total of 22,867 IDF soldiers have fallen in battle or died during service over the course of Israel’s history. Over the past year 183 soldiers joined that list; most of the recent casualties died during their mandatory service, but not of causes specifically related to their military duties.

There are currently 4,999 women living in Israel who lost a husband to war, according to the Defense Minister. There are 2,543 Israeli children who lost a parent in service, and 3,252 couples and 4,315 individual parents who lost a child.

In total, 18,361 people are currently defined as bereaved relatives of the first degree, a number which does not include the siblings of fallen soldiers.

On Sunday evening, a siren will sound at 8 pm to commemorate the fallen. Israelis across the country will stand in silence. After the siren, official memorial ceremonies will begin, including the central ceremony, to be held at the Western Wall (Kotel). President Shimon Peres and IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz will attend.

A second siren blast will sound the next morning. The main daytime event will be held at the Har Herzl military cemetery in Jerusalem, and will be attended by Peres and by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu.

Memorial Day also commemorates civilians murdered by terrorists. A total of 2,443 Israeli civilians have been murdered by terrorists since 1950; 13 were killed over the course of the past year.


Independence Day ceremony torch-lighters represent the essence of Israel  (Israel National News)
Some of the Israelis who were chosen to light Independence Day torches shared their emotions and revealed their warm personalities when they spoke with Arutz Sheva yesterday.

Rabbi Shimon Rosenberg - whose daughter and son-in-law, Rivki and Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg, were murdered in Mumbai - will be accompanied by his grandson Moishie when he lights the torch. He spoke of his feelings and those of Moishie.

Arutz Sheva also heard Gadi Bashari, founder of an organization that funds activities for soldiers, disabled children and new immigrants; Col. (res.) Hoshe Friedman, head of a pre-military academy; Orit Dror, who donated her son's organs and saved the life of a 13-year-old girl; Holocaust survivor and Eichmann guard Michael Goldman, and Matityahu Droblas, former head of Settlement Department of the World Zionist Histadrut.

Obama advertises his country’s tendency toward subjugating its own best interests to appease its enemies in the jihadi world

Obama bungles his Osama opportunity by Kevin Libin in Canada's National Post
There’s no way around it: Barack Obama has taken the greatest public relations triumph of his presidency and ruined it. Not completely ruined it, no: the take-out of Osama bin Laden, America’s public enemy number one is too big an achievement to be completely undone by the president’s ham-handed handling of the aftermath. But he’s done an admirable job of taking the shine off of one of his nation’s most gloried moments by turning Americans’ attention from celebrating together to arguing over a couple of photographs and whether or not a crack team of Navy SEALs were merciful enough in their treatment of one of history’s most notorious mass murderers.

It’s worse than that, actually. He’s also advertised his country’s tendency toward subjugating its own best interests to appease its enemies in the jihadi world. . . .

Washington isn’t trying to sap the morale of North Americans; it’s trying to undermine the allure of jihad for those who might be tempted by it. Were America interested in showing its strength, it would not worry whether bin Laden was armed or not. It would insist that he was a marked man, a monstrous butcher, and deserved to die.

Were America interested in showing strength, it would release the photographs of Osama’s bullet-riddled corpse to advertise to his followers and sympathizers that he was nothing but a mortal, like the rest of us, who paid for his atrocities in blood, spilled unforgivingly by the greatest military power in history. It isn’t about jingoism. It’s about propaganda. It’s about psy-ops. These are standard devices of warfare.

Instead, the president has made the worst of a tremendous achievement. He has insisted that releasing the photographs, showing a bloody wound over bin Laden’s eye, would be too “gruesome” for Americans to stomach—the same people, as Jon Stewart pointed out, who “from 8pm on, every show on television we watch begins with an internal tracking shot of a gaping wound above someone’s left eye, pulling out only to reveal half a hooker in a dumpster, discovered by a child on a bicycle”—and too “inflammatory” to the Muslim world.

Had Barack Obama, say, come out on May 1st and announced that Osama bin Laden had been found, and shot down like a dog by a heroic team of highly trained U.S. troops, Americans would have cheered just as loudly. Had he released the photos, the world would know for certain that this once-mythic jihadi had died an ignominious and brutal death at the hands of a most fearsome adversary. Instead, the White House looks timid and unsure, while whatever credibility it retained after admitting it peddled false information, gets steadily eroded by a flood of fake death photographs hitting the Internet that will only confuse and sow doubt among anyone who might not implicitly trust America’s reputability—which is to say, about a billion Muslims worldwide.

On eve of Obama's Ground Zero victory appearance, protestors in L.A. challenge Ground Zero Mosque Imam Feisal Rauf / Reza Aslan's 'moderate Islam' show as stealth-jihad to mollify West into socio-political deference to Islam

Hammer Lectures at UCLA presented Imam Feisal Rauf of the Ground Zero Mosque controversy, May 4th 2011. A protest of Imam Rauf's professing his intentions as 'moderate' - was staged by Act for America's Shari Goodman and representatives of Stop the Islamization of America (SIOA) and the American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI). Several counter-jihadists alleged the Imam's taqiya / jihadist deceptiveness, such as Z.O.A. West Executive Director Shelley Ventura-Cohen. Two idealistic Jewish liberals from Pasadena argued that liberal Jews believe Imam Rauf's professing himself a moderate Muslim. Univ of Calif Irvine adjunct lecturer, Gary Fouse, attempts to edify the liberals of the nature and tactics of Islamist imperialists in America.



Stealth Islamic supremacist summit: Ground Zero mosque Imam Rauf, Reza Aslan speak at UCLA by Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch.org

The slick and smug imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, former front man and continuing board member for the Ground Zero mosque project, and the posturing adolescent Reza Aslan, appeared together last night at UCLA. It was a revealing harmonic convergence of stealth Islamic supremacists.

Dishonesty and disingenuousness are the golden threads running through the careers and public statements of both Rauf and Aslan. Rauf is the self-proclaimed "man of peace" who has won such renown as a "moderate" that both Bush and Obama sent him to Muslim countries on goodwill missions. But as Pamela Geller has explained:
It is clear that Rauf and other mosque leaders are not as moderate as they claim to be. Rauf has close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood...The Muslim Brotherhood is dedicated, according to a captured internal document, to “eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within.” Rauf’s book What’s Right with Islam says on the copyright page that “this edition was made possible through a joint effort of the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT) and the office of Interfaith and Community Alliance of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). Funding for this project was provided by IIIT.” Both IIIT and ISNA are Muslim Brotherhood fronts, and ISNA was named an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation Hamas terror funding case.
The Arabic translation of Rauf’s book What's Right with Islam is disturbingly entitled  A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of Post-9/11 America.  This indicates that he has planned for years to spread Islam and Sharia from the site of the 9/11 attacks -- belying his more recent claims that he intends the mosque to be a center for reconciliation and peace.

He has also been completely dishonest about the mosque project itself. Now it is a community center nowhere near Ground Zero, but when it was initially announced Rauf was forthright, saying: “New York is the capital of the world, and this location close to 9/11 is iconic.”  
That statement has now been scrubbed from the online version of the New York Times article in which it initially appeared.

Former Federal prosecutor, John Loftus, uncovers "America's Nazi Secrets" to Holocaust survivors- including our hiring the Arab Nazi, Muslim Brotherhood to commission Osama bin Laden; Britain helped bequeath Nazism into Muslim world against state of Jews


John Loftus says the U.S. employed Euro and Arab Nazis (Muslim Brotherhood, Osama) against Russia and Israel. Author of "The Secret War Against the Jews," and "America's Nazi Secrets" addresses an audience of gathered Holocaust survivors (and their descendants) at L.A.'s Holocaust Remembrance Day on the topics of Ameican and British complicity in both financing of the Nazis (and Islamofascists) - and then arranging to provide safe harbor for escaping Nazi criminals to their countries.

The Justice Department, Mr. Loftus's research reveals, obstructed Congressional investigations, including concealing from 9/11 investigators the role of U.S.-recruited Arab Nazi war criminals, the Muslim Brotherhood, in recruiting modern, middle-eastern terrorist groups, the Mujahadeen. Muslim Brotherhood off-shoot, Hamas, is the Palestinian heir to the Nazi ideology of eradication of the Jews.

L.A. County Sheriff Lee Baca (who testified at the House of Representatives' Homeland Security hearing on Muslim radicalization) sat on the dais, along with local elected officials, Mayor Villaraigosa, County Supervisor, Zev Yaroslavsky, and Councilman Paul Koretz.
