About All Those Options On The Table .....

On Iran and now on Syria, the White House keeps declaring: 
"All Options Are On The Table"

Only trouble is, the president seems to need a booster seat.

Egypt in the words of Isaiah 19:2

ב  וְסִכְסַכְתִּי מִצְרַיִם בְּמִצְרַיִם, וְנִלְחֲמוּ אִישׁ-בְּאָחִיו
וְאִישׁ בְּרֵעֵהוּ, עִיר בְּעִיר, מַמְלָכָה בְּמַמְלָכָה.

And I will stir up Egyptians against Egyptians, 
And they shall fight—

Every one against his brother and Every one against his neighbour,—
City against city, and Kingdom against kingdom.

Planned Parenthood and the Jihad

One of life's conundrums is why secular progressives and their acolytes in the left-wing media seem to always take sides with Islam against Israel; the only true pluralist democracy in the Middle East.

The Left's sacred cows are human rights, women's rights, gay rights, natural justice, peace and personal freedom, liberty and democracy. 

Practically all of these lofty principles are either proscribed or heinously trampled by Islamists in their daily savagery in suicide bombings, church attacks, honor killings, female genital mutilations ... just look at the counter on the left of this blog by the Religion of Peace blog.

The natural conclusion is that secular progressives will oppose Jews and their only nation state at all costs, even if it means Faustian deals with such heinous fanatics.

But this week I came across this quotation from the founder of Planned Parenthood. This is the standard-bearer of what they call the 'Pro-Choice' movement in America, which defends women's rights to abortion. 

This hugely prosperous NGO is one of the Obama administration's sacred cows - so much so that 3 senators have this month forced an audit investigation into its use of billions of federal funds. Here is an extract of a report from the conservative Heritage Foundation: 
Despite the organization’s prominence—performing roughly one of every four abortions in America—Planned Parenthood has ridden the waves of taxpayer funding to millions of dollars in annual surpluses. Planned Parenthood received over $542 million in taxpayer dollars during 2011 alone, all the while performing a record 333,964 abortions. In that year, like many before it, Planned Parenthood saw a very comfortable income, reporting excess revenues exceeding $87 million and net assets of more than $1.2 billion.

But - apart from its openly racist founder - what does this institution have to do with Liberal Progressives taking sides with the Islamists?  What can they possibly have in common.

I am thinking maybe an attitude to life itself ....

Ashton's EU revives the PLO

Following the Oslo Accords and the death of Yasser Arafat, the term PLO has largely been expunged from current usage and - like the toxic debt instruments which bankrupted half the world - it was rebranded and sanitized as the PA ... the Palestinian Authority.

Only one politician I have been in touch with has doggedly stuck with the term 'PLO' and that is Benny Begin.  And by pronouncing it just exactly like his father did, he phonetically confirms that nothing has changed for the last 50 years.

Also unchanged is the PLO Charter - a covenant to destroy the Jewish state by armed struggle and military means. 

With such a genocidal covenant, most Western politicians are understandably grateful not to have to say the word PLO, and to use PA instead.

But no so, it seems, the anti-Semites in the EU. 

On close examination of their Tisha B'Av sanctions directive they've revived the term, openly referring to and acknowledging 'agreements with the PLO'.

Paragraph 4 reads ...

4. These guidelines do not cover EU support in the form of
grants, prizes or financial instruments awarded to
Palestinian entities or to their activities in the territories
referred to in point 2, nor any eligibility conditions set
up for this purpose. In particular, they do not cover any
agreements between the EU, on the one hand, and the
Palestinian Liberation Organisation or the Palestinian
Authority, on the other hand.

Yes ... agreements with the same PLO as was responsible for all those hijackings and terror attacks across Europe over two decades. Hundreds of civilian killings.

The Middle East peace 'Quartet' comprises the USA, Russia, the UN and the EU.
We are all very familiar with the UNGA's egregious bias, and we've seen Russia working alongside Iran to support Syria with missiles designed to compromise Israel's defensive capabilities. After the EU's legally-flawed and anti-Semitic sanctions, this leaves only the United States with any kind of credibility as a peace arbiter.

Israel should ignore the rest and work exclusively with the US, to the extent that its national and defense imperatives allow.
