How It’s Done: Israeli Athlete Shows the Anti-Semites
Debbie Schlussel reports: As you probably know, the International Olympic Committee, once again-as with every single Olympic Games from 1972 on-has refused to memorialize the Israeli athletes murdered at the 1972 Munich Olympics by Palestinian Islamic terrorists, and this latest refusal is for the 2012 Games. They’d rather not offend the Muslims than do the right thing, as the Olympic Games has a history of anti-Semitism. Israel cannot even compete against Muslim countries in the early rounds and must compete in the “European” division so as not to offend the Muslims. It’s something I’ve complained about for decades, including in the video below. Given this context, it’s even more heartwarming to watch the actions of Moran Samuel, an Israeli athlete who won a Gold Medal in the Paralympics. Watch brief video.
News from the Jerusalem Prayer Team:
An anonymous source told Israel’s leading newspaper over the weekend that the countdown to war with Iran is even shorter than most people believe. “I think they have made a decision to attack,” this high-level source said. “It is going to happen.”
The new unity government put in place by my dear friend Prime Minister Netanyahu has many purposes, but there is no doubt that the primary focus of the coalition is dealing with the threat of Iran’s nuclear program. The new government is strong-one commentator called it a “hundred tons of solid concrete”-and deeply experienced with defense and military issues. Three of the members of the cabinet have served as Defense Minister, and the 94-seat coalition (out of 120 members of Knesset) is unshakable. In 1967, such a unity government was formed just before the outbreak of war.
At a conference in Tehran, Palestinian ambassador to Iran Salah Zawawi called for his hosts to lead an armed assault against Israel. “Liberating Palestine” can never be accomplished with “political initiatives,” he said. Zawawi also declared the Palestinians would “never abandon the Holy Quds [Jerusalem]” but that it would be their capital.
Two IDF soldiers were wounded by gunfire from snipers in Gaza yesterday as they patrolled the border. Both of the men, an officer and an enlisted serviceman, are expected to recover. This was just the latest outbreak of violence from the land that Israel gave to the Palestinians seven years ago in exchange for promises of peace.

IT’S NEWS TO ME
Muslim IHOP Owner Indicted for Money Laundering, Terrorist Ties, and More
Debbie Schlusselreports: Remember “Terry Elk” a/k/a Tarek Elkafrawi, the Egyptian Muslim whose International House of Pancakes (IHOP) franchises in Indiana and Ohio were raided by the Joint Terrorism Task Force, including Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the FBI, and local police, last September? Yesterday [5/23], he was indicted, along with many of his employees and associates-most of them Arab Muslims, just like him. They were using IHOP franchises for all kinds of mysterious and illegal activities, some of them believed to be tied to Islamic terrorism. Read more.

Obama: Slaughter of Christians a Misunderstanding
Vision to America reports: The violence in northern Nigeria is mistakenly viewed as a religious conflict rather than simply a tribal dispute over land, according to the Obama administration. Despite the ongoing Muslim destruction of churches and the slaughter of Christians – including many murdered during worship services – the U.S. Agency for International Development claims that the misunderstandings make it difficult to administer aid programs. Read more.
Another Revealing Video
Act for America reports: In this video, Sheikh Omar Bakri Muhammad makes crystal clear, leaving no doubt whatsoever, what sharia law means for non-Muslims and the West. Watch closely what he says about “equality,” “rights,” “peace” and “war.” Note when he refers to “dhimmi” status (second class citizenship) and “coexistence.” What the sheikh is spelling out is the supremacist ideology of the Muslim Brotherhood, ISNA, CAIR, the Muslim Students Association, MPAC, the Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America, etc. This supremacist ideology is overwhelming Europe and the UK and is being planted in our midst here in America. You should pay close attention if you live near Ashburn, Virginia. Watch video.
