This issue looks at Iran’s new controversial UN Ambassador, the latest Russia-Iran connection, the ruling on the NYPD’s counterterrorism tactics, Obama’s latest gift to al-Qaeda, and more.
OUR ISRAELI CONNECTION
News from The Israel Project
After yesterday’s news that Palestinian Authority (PA) President
Mahmoud Abbas was again turning his back on peace with Israel in favor of unilateralism at the UN, it emerged overnight that Abbas has picked out 15 international treaties to join, violating his promise not just to Israel, but to the United States as well. The treaties themselves are all good things – they protect women, children, the disabled, and more – but those things have nothing to do with what Abbas is after: He is trying to circumvent the peace process, and find new international forums in which to attack Israel.
Lawmakers in both chambers of Congress are moving to enact legislation
that would prevent Iran from securing a visa for its newly appointed ambassador to the United Nations, just a day after Businessweek had already described the choice of Hamid Aboutalebi as creating a “dilemma” for President Barack Obama’s diplomacy toward the Islamic Republic. Aboutalebi was a member of the Muslim Student Followers of the Imam’s Line when the group in 1979 seized scores of Americans inside the U.S.’s Iran embassy and subsequently held them for 444 days.
Reuters reported Wednesday afternoon that Russia and Iran were advancing on a scheme that would see the Iranians bartering roughly 500,000 barrels of oil a day in exchange for Russian goods, a plan that the outlet said would “enable Tehran to boost vital energy exports in defiance of Western sanctions” and which the White house had previously gone so far as to identify as the source of “serious concerns.”
Iran’s Fars News outlet reported on Tuesday that Tehran is aggressively courting foreign investors, conveying among other things statements made by Valiollah Afkhamirad, the head of Iran’s Trade Development Organization, declaring that the interim Joint Plan of Action (JPA) inked last November in Geneva had created “a suitable atmosphere… [for] investors in Iran and they have become highly interested in business” with the Islamic Republic.
Chris Christie: HAMAS Fan Calls Israel “Occupied Territories” @ Jewish Event
Debbie Schlussel reports: HAMAS Fan Chris Chrispiecreme said Israel is “Occupied Territory” belonging to Palestinian terrorists. And the calorically-gifted Gov had the chutzpah to do it at a Jewish event. He made this pan-Arabist statement at an event, this weekend, held by Republican Jewish donor Sheldon Adelson under the banner of the Republican Jewish Coalition (which is barely Jewish and hardly Republican-check out my in-depth expose of this ineffective, anti-Israel organization of RINO-JINOs).

IT’S NEWS TO ME
Federal Judge Backs NYPD’s Counterterrorism Tactics
Islamist Watch reports: Outraging Islamists, U.S. District Judge William Martini dismissed a lawsuit accusing the New York Police Department of violating Muslims’ civil rights by covertly investigating mosques, businesses, and student groups in New Jersey to identify possible terrorists. The plaintiffs, he explains, “have not alleged facts from which it can be plausibly inferred that they were targeted solely because of their religion. The more likely explanation for the surveillance was a desire to locate budding terrorist conspiracies” after 9/11. “The police could not have monitored New Jersey for Muslim terrorist activities without monitoring the Muslim community itself.” Read more.
Dem Wishes to Eliminate 2nd Amendment, But Confesses Honesty Not the Best Policy
Vision to America reports: Last Friday, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) [a
Muslim] expressed to the audience of HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher that he hopes the Democratic Party come outs, not just in favor of more gun control, but against the Second Amendment itself. This is merely the latest episode of an elected official pulling back the curtain on the extreme contempt with which some politicians view the Second Amendment. Read more.
Al-Qaeda Syrian Rebels to Receive Air Defense Aid from Obama Administration
Freedomoutpost.com reports:In a stunning move that defies all logic, the Obama Administration is preparing to give Al-Qaeda Syrian rebels air defense aid. While shocking in its idiocy, it shouldn’t surprise Americans, considering that President Obama openly funds terrorists in the Middle East. Giving aid to our sworn enemy, Al-Qaeda, has been his open and unabashed mission since 2012, and possibly earlier. With the Al-Qaeda splinter group, Islamic State of in Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) heavily involved in Syria and the region, the disarray becomes more evident. Read more.
Muslim Mob Murders Young Christian Girl
Eaglerising.com reports: In yet another display of Islamic “peace” and tolerance, a young Christian girl who was delivering medicine to an elderly woman in a local church, was pulled from her car then beaten and stabbed to death by an angry Muslim mob. Eyewitnesses say that her crime was especially heinous – she had a cross hanging from the rear view mirror of her vehicle! Oh, the Horror. This continues the 1300+ year trend of Islamic aggression and violence towards anyone who is not like them. Read more.
ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
I recently received this note from a friend:
When I went outside this morning it very much looked and felt like spring. I was so excited I wet my plants!
