Throughout the 1930s, Hitler groomed his culture and his continent for unspeakable savagery... Today Iran is doing the same thing.
Throughout the 1930s, Hitler groomed his culture and his continent for unspeakable savagery.
He did this by glorifying his country’s collective ego, asserting the racial superiority of “Aryans” who were on the cusp of a millennium of global rule. He also did it by demonizing Jews as the primary obstacle to a golden age of Aryan oligarchy.
Almost every aspect of Western life is connected to the Internet. From autos to aircraft, operating rooms to living rooms, from pacemakers to hydroelectric dams, wired devices are making life easier, smarter—and dangerous. Most of these devices are wide open to intrusion. Cyber-savvy terrorists and thieves can walk right in and do as they please. Hearts could be stopped, cars locked up, aircraft shut down, power grids turned off, contagions released, missiles fired.
The Vatican’s flag is likely to go up just as the pope descends onto the nations’ New York stage to say whatever it is he plans to pontificate.
In less than a month, the pope will be in New York. On September 25, he will address the United Nations. Most news agencies have the event on their calendar, but are not yet giving it attention. In spite of the fact that no one knows what he will say, there has been very little in the press about the pope’s pending pontifications at the UN podium. What is his agenda? For any number of reasons, journalists are not asking. At least not yet.
Is the Vatican planning to establish a United Nations of Religion with Francis as its head?

On the eve of a final round of superpower negotiations with Iran regarding its nuclear program, Israel is "deeply concerned, deeply disturbed."
Fresh from confidential talks with the US negotiating team, Israel's Minister of Intelligence, Yuval Steinitz, addressed the press yesterday afternoon [Sept. 17]. Five times he said that Israel is “disturbed.” And at least nine times he said it is “concerned.”
Tomorrow the world’s five superpowers plus Germany, the P5+1, begin a seventh and final round of negotiations with Iran regarding its nuclear program. Iran maintains that it is only interested in nuclear power for civilian use to generate energy. But its consistent activity and developments have made Iran capable of producing a fully functional nuclear bomb.
The Grand Mufti’s claims are puzzling at best.
Monday, 26 October 2015. The foremost legal scholar of Islam in Jerusalem is the Grand Mufti, Muhammad Hussein. He recently asserted that the first man, Adam, perhaps with the help of angels, built today’s Dome of the Rock, the 1,300-year-old Islamic shrine that sits atop the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City. Accordingly, he said, the site has been an Islamic mosque “3,000 years ago and 30,000 years ago.”
With no corporate sense of good versus evil, democratic states find themselves unable to lead the world toward meaningful human rights.
In the aftermath of the November 13 massacre in Paris, there is a growing sense that the terrorist attack may have furthered a tectonic shift in world leadership and direction. In spite of pledges to get tough, France, the US, Europe and most Middle East countries cannot find it in themselves to pursue a meaningful strategy to combat Islamic State (IS, ISIL or ISIS). Their failure to produce a clear-cut plan is propelling the West straight into Moscow’s coalition with Tehran.
Rivlin's strong words, counter to his type as a kindly grandfather pursuing reconciliation with Israel's Arab communities, were part of a memorial ceremony yesterday [Nov. 2] at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem. Although the event was unrelated, it took place at the same location where, last week, Temple Mount activist Rabbi Yehuda Glick, was shot four times in the chest by an Arab terrorist in an attempted assassination. It is reported that Glick is in stable but serious condition.
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 | One week ago today, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon expressed "shock and alarm" after visiting a Hamas terror tunnel in Gaza. Days later Hamas military commander, "Abu Khalid," publicly announced aggressive reconstruction of tunnels destroyed by Israel in this summer's war.
Israel called the war, "Operation Protective Edge."
Hamas invited reporter Mahmoud Fouda on an exclusive tour of tunnel reconstruction. Fouda is a reporter for the Gaza newspaper Al-Resalah. He filed his report last Sunday.
"We call on all our people inside the country to hurry up to al-Aqsa to defend it," he said according to a Reuters report filed Thursday. Meshaal also summoned "the nation to be angry and to send a message of painful anger to the world that the Palestinian people, the Arab and Muslim nation, will not be silent at the Israeli crime."
