This issue looks at Obama’s outrageous claim regarding Israel, the outrageous DOD conclusion regarding the Fort Hood massacre, the latest military attacks on Israel, anti-Semitism from an Obama ambassador, Europe’s “Islamic awakening,” and Iran’s retaliation to sanctions on its Central Bank.

Obama- The Greatest Defender of Israel?
President Obama thinks so. This week he told a group of Jews: I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more in terms of the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration.If you’re a faithful reader, you know how ludicrous his claim was. Surely he can’t believe his own words, can he? He is either delusional or extremely arrogant.
Missiles from Lebanon Strike Israel
Jerusalem Prayer Team reports: Following the explosion at Iran’s nuclear facility in Isfahan on Monday, four missiles were fired into northern Israel from Lebanon, apparently by Hezbollah forces. There can be no doubt that Iran pulls the strings of the terrorists who continually strike at Israel. Israel will continue to work to destroy Iran’s nuclear program. Iran will continue to use its terrorist proxies to respond. Neither side wants an all-out open war yet.
To the south, Israeli Defense Forces successfully launched a military strike against a smuggling tunnel that was to be used for another attack on Jewish civilians. It led from the Sinai desert like one earlier this year that resulted in the deaths of eight people-seven of them civilians. Intelligence provided indicated that members of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade were preparing an immediate attack. Two senior leaders of the terrorist group were killed, and several others are believed to have been injured in the strike. In response, the terrorists launched at least five rockets into Israel, but no casualties were reported.
Obama’s Ambassador Blames Jews for Muslim Anti-Semitism
One Jerusalem reports: President Obama’s Ambassador to Belgium told a gathering of European Jewish leaders, “A distinction should be made between traditional anti-Semitism, which should be condemned and Muslim hatred for Jews, which stems from the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.” Several Jewish groups have asked President Obama to reprimand his Ambassador. They should also demand that members of the State Department be re-educated on the facts of Muslim anti-Semitism. The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem did not need the Jewish State of Israel to turn him into a Jew-hater. He earned the friendship of Adolf Hitler because he encouraged the killing of Jews. And his actions are not unique.


DOD Classifies Fort Hood Shooting as “Workplace Violence”

Nidal Hasan

Front Porch Politics reports: Have you heard about the Obama administration’s latest strategy to weaken America’s security? The Department of Defense (DOD) has classified the 2009 Fort Hood massacre that claimed 13 Americans and wounded 29 more as “workplace violence.” Since 9/11, there have been 33 terror plots targeting the U.S. military; 70% have come since mid-2009. In fact, the DOD now considers America the most dangerous place for service members outside of foreign war zones. This past June, two men allegedly plotted to attack a Seattle, Washington, military installation using guns and grenades. In July, an Army private was accused of planning a second attack on Fort Hood. Then just last month, the New York Police Department foiled a plot targeting service members returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Read more from Godfather Politics on this announcement.
Europe Reacts to Islamic Intolerance
Act for America reports: A recent study in Europe found that half of Europeans now believe Islam is a religion of intolerance. This is revealing, because for decades European countries and Great Britain have bent over backwards to accommodate Muslim immigrants and increasingly unreasonable demands from Islamic leaders and organizations. Pushback by Europeans has resulted in the Swiss passage of a referendum banning the construction of minarets and the growing strength of Geert Wilders’ political party in the Netherlands. It appears that, as more and more Europeans have seen the intolerance of radical Islam, they are understandably reacting negatively to that intolerance. This is what leaders like German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister David Cameron were referring to last year when they said, speaking of Muslim immigration, that “multiculturalism” had failed. Cameron went so far as to say it was time to stop being tolerant of intolerance.
Iran Strikes Back
Jerusalem Prayer Team reports: Following the attack on the British Embassy in Tehran, a bomb exploded this week at the British Embassy in Bahrain. England has led what little efforts are being made to stop Iran’s nuclear program. They placed sanctions on Iran’s Central Bank that if followed by other nations would prove to be crippling to the Iranian economy. Iran responded by sending a carefully orchestrated mob to attack the embassy in Tehran, briefly taking six workers hostage. Iran has also issued “warnings” to the rest of the European Union not to impose sanctions or other diplomatic penalties on the Islamic regime. Iran has long-range missiles capable of striking most of Europe, and is letting it be known that it will not limit these attacks to Israel alone if Iran’s nuclear program is attacked.
