Blagojevich appeal attorney Len Goodman on Obama drone program, Drone Justice is Blind, There’s no way President Obama can fairly review each drone strike

“Why wasn’t Rod Blagojevich, Governor of IL, prosecuted before Tony Rezko, a businessman?”…Citizen Wells

“Why did Patrick Fitzgerald and the US Justice Department wait until December 2008 to arrest Rod Blagojevich?”…Citizen Wells

“Regardless of how this plays out, it benefits Obama. If there is no appeal or the appeal is denied, Blagojevich will be sequestered. If the appeal proceeds, it could drag out beyond impacting the 2012 election cycle. The intent is obvious.”…Citizen Wells, July 19, 2011

I am still awaiting word if the opening brief in the Blagojevich appeal was presented today, April 25, 2013.

Len ( Leonard) Goodman is one of the defense attorneys in the Blagojevich appeal.

“Biography

Leonard Goodman is a Chicago criminal defense attorney with a reputation for taking on, and winning, the most difficult cases.  Since graduating from Northwestern University School of Law in 1989, Mr. Goodman has devoted his career to the representation of persons charged with serious crimes and has been a strong advocate for the cause of justice.  He has tried criminal cases in state and federal courts throughout the Midwest.  His appellate practice is nationwide.

Mr. Goodman has the rare distinction of having won major criminal cases at every level of the state and federal court systems, including wins (obtaining the reversal of his clients’ criminal convictions) in the United States Supreme Court (drug conspiracy conviction), the Illinois Supreme Court (first degree murder), the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (first degree murder) and the Illinois Appellate Court (two first degree murders and one attempted murder). The appeals that he has briefed and argued have helped change the law and advance the cause of justice (See significant cases).

He has represented high-profile defendants and the indigent, all with equal vigor and has won awards for his work on behalf of the wrongfully convicted and on behalf of an Afghani man detained at Guantanamo Bay without charges or evidence of any wrongdoing.

Mr. Goodman is also an adjunct professor of Law at Depaul University where he teaches Federal Habeas Corpus.”

“Drone Justice is Blind

There’s no way President Obama can fairly review each drone strike.

BY LEONARD C. GOODMAN

For the first time in history, the United States government has proclaimed its legal right to assassinate any person, anywhere on the globe, as long as our chief executive believes that person to be a terrorist. President Barack Obama has said that most of the people we are incinerating are “al-Qaeda suspects who are up in very tough terrain along the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.”

Precise numbers are hard to come by, due to the secrecy under which the drone program operates. But the various groups that track drone strikes agree that since Obama took office, more than 350 strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia have killed at least 2,400 people. This means, outside of Afghanistan, U.S. drones are killing on average at least 47 people a month. If you include drone strikes in Afghanistan,the numbers are much larger.

The administration’s claim as to the legality of these strikes relies on the fiction that a rigorous review of evidence takes place before a “terrorist” is targeted. However, no matter how smart and reasonable Obama might be, he is not personally reviewing the evidence against most of the people we are killing. In fact, according to CNN, at least half of drone strike deaths have been the result of “signature strikes,” in which drone operators decide, based on visual evidence of suspicious behavior, to fire on people whose identities they don’t even know. As one government official told the New York Times, to the CIA, “three guys doing jumping jacks” looks suspiciously like a terrorist training camp.

We are told that drone killings neutralize imminent threats to America, but we need only consider the numbers to know we are being lied to. There cannot be 50 people every month who were on the verge of launching an attack on the U.S. until they were “neutralized” by a drone. We therefore must ask: To whom did each targeted person pose a threat? Were they a threat to U.S. military bases or CIA installations located within their country? Were they a threat to corporate interests located within their country? Were they a threat to the regime that governs their country and allows us to fly the drones?”

    MEGYN KELLY’S SURPRISE REVELATION: FBI WAS ‘SHOCKED’ TO SEE JUDGE ‘WALTZ’ IN AND GIVE SUSPECT MIRANDA RIGHTS

    (quote)
    “The FBI had no idea they were sending over the judge, the prosecutor, the federal public defender; and the FBI said they were only 16 hours into what they understood would be a 48 hour period of questioning … . They said they were in the process of getting valuable information … and as soon as that magistrate judge went in there and gave him his rights with his lawyer present, he stopped talking. They said they would never have stopped  interrogating him prior to the 48 hours unless they were forced to.”

    “These officials with knowledge of the proceedings say they believe our national security may have been compromised by the decision to send that judge in there so soon after the filing of the criminal complaint.”

  2. CW,

    Wholesale War Crimes by the regime. This is very disturbing in light of the regime wants to murder American Citizens with indiscriminate drone attacks in the USA. Even more disturbing is that people like “republican” rand paul approve of the regime’s outrageously unconstitutional desires.

    “Precise numbers are hard to come by, due to the secrecy under which the drone program operates.

    Now I wonder whp tipped off that Judge…and especially since the FBI thought they would have 48 hours with the rat……..hint…hint…..

    The judge was accompanied by a Federal prosecutor if that’s any help !

    According to Kelly, the FBI was under the understanding that they would get much more time with Tsarnaev under the “public safety exemption” before he was read his rights. Adding to the shock: the sources told Kelly agents were getting crucial information after only 16 hours of questioning and were making valuable progress.

    No matter.

    “It’s really unbelievable,” Kelly said.

    “The FBI had no idea they were sending over the judge, the prosecutor, the federal public defender; and the FBI said they were only 16 hours into what they understood would be a 48 hour period of questioning … .

    Judge Bowler has some interesting international connections. She is a member of the Member of the International Judicial Relations Committee of the Judicial Conference of the United States.

    Apparently in that capacity, she visited and spoke on legal issues at a number of Muslim countries, becoming the first female judge to speak in Kuwait, appearing also in Egypt and in the United Arab Emirates.

    Oddly enough, aside from a visit to the US embassy in Belgrade, those are the only international appearances that she lists and they all take place in Muslim countries.

    While Islamic infiltration of our political system is well known, the infiltration of our legal system is less well known, but operates within similar parameters with foreign contacts being made. There is no way of knowing how much Bowler has been influenced by her connections with the legal and political systems of the Muslim world, but it is telling that her international judicial relations appear to begin and end with the Muslim world.

    “Senator Mitch McConnell Blocks Investigation Into Obama Identity Document Fraud”
    =====
    “RINO Blocks Investigation Of Obama’s Birth Certificate”
    By Louise Hodges @ WCJ

    “When I discovered Obama’s mother’s passport files posted on the Internet, I sent copies to Sen. Mitch McConnell and Sen. Lindsey Graham, explaining the passport problem and asking for an investigation. I also wrote a piece for the Western Center on Journalism, explaining the problem with Ann Dunham’s passport files. I had one simple question: If Obama was born in Hawaii, why wasn’t he included on his mother’s passport files? Passport regulations required a photo of parent and child and a copy of a hospital birth certificate.

    I have a home in Louisville, KY, so I used my Kentucky address. My legal residence, however, is Arizona. I am concerned that someone in Congress apparently does not want any investigation into Obama’s eligibility to proceed.

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been subjected to public ridicule for investigating Obama’s records since Congress refused. The American people want to know if their President is a citizen of the United States. That is not too much to ask.

    I received a response from Sen. McConnell today that reads as follows:”

    Feds Won’t Say if Tsarnaevs Had Gov’t-Funded Phones

    The Lifeline phone subsidy program, referred to as the “Obama phone” program by its critics, charges paying cell phone customers an average monthly fee of $2.50 per household to fund the now $2.2 billion program that provides lower-income individuals with free cell phones and service.

    Lawmakers from both parties have recently expressed concern about fraud and abuse in the Lifeline free cell phone program, as well as the phones’ increasing use by criminals.

    “I hear from law enforcement that these phones are often found at crime scenes and are used in drug deals,” said Rep. Tim Griffin (R-AK). “Why? It’s because you can’t trace them.”

    According to the FCC, the top five companies involved in the Lifeline program cannot verify the eligibility of 41% of the over six million Lifeline phone users.

    Cellphones were, however, used to communicate and possibly coordinate during the terror attack, according to the Justice Department criminal complaint. The document states that, in the minutes leading up to the first explosion, one of the suspects was actively using and possibly “manipulating” his cell phone:

    Boston terrorist attack: The top 10 reasons Americans should be concerned about their safety
    April 25, 2013 | Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America

    Posted on 04/25/2013 3:28:40 PM PDT by Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America

    1) After the terrorist attack in Boston, Obama failed to acknowledge a ‘War on Terror’; He refused to implicate Islam or Islamic extremists for the attack.

    2) Immediately after the attack, Obama had a secret unscheduled meeting with Saudi Diplomat Azzam bin Abdel Karim. John Kerry met with Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal and the State Department made a sudden announcement that the meeting was closed to the press.

    3) Why did Michelle Obama visit a probable terrorist Saudi, Abdul Rahman Ali Isa Al-Salmi Al-Harbi (and Noura Khaled Saleh Al-Ajaji) in the hospital? Why did the Secret Service allow the First Lady of the United States to be in the same room with an individual on the ‘terrorist watch list’ and his associates? Is this Saudi National in the same hospital as the other victims of the attack? Why? Who are his visitors and what are their associations?

    4) Al Harbi, who coincidentally was injured in the explosion, had relocated to Boston from Ohio in violation of the terms of his Visa just 6 months prior to the marathon. Is this also a coincidence?

    5) Why was Obama and his administration quick to tell us this was an isolated event, even before a thorough investigation of these attack is complete? The only way they could possibly know this is if they had specific knowledge and details of the attack beforehand. Otherwise, it would be impossible for them to know at such an early stage in the investigation!

    6) Russia repeatedly warned the United States of Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s radicalization and affiliation with Chechnyan Islamic terrorists. It is uncharacteristic of Russia to issue repeated warnings in this manner, so why did the Obama administration ignore them? The FBI/CIA allegedly requested that Tamerlan be placed on ‘terroristist watch lists’ but those requests were allegedly denied. Why?

    7) Cover-Up of Al Harbi’s ‘terror watch list’ and deportation status; Where is he now? We still do not know. Why was Janet Napolitano evasive on his status and whereabouts when questioned by Congress? Why so protective of an individual possibly connected to the bombing?

    8) DHS, FBI, Military, Federal, State and local police forcibly removed American citizens from their homes at gunpoint without warrants. Why were regular American citizens treated like terrorists during the siege of Watertown?

    9) Miranda rights were given to the surviving Boston bomber before comprehensive interrogation could be completed. Who ordered a Judge to appear at Dzokhar’s bedside without notifying in advance the FBI interrogators who were already there? Who rushed to deny the gathering of intelligence regarding possibly imminent terrorist attacks in America, putting all Americans in immediate danger?

    10) Why the refusal by Gov. Deval Patrick to disclose the specifics of Tamerlan’s income or entitlement payments even though he is dead and clearly no longer entitled to any privacy rights? What’s he hiding? Who’s payroll was Tamerlan on and why?

  19. http://www.theglobaldispatch.com/abdul-rahman-ali-alharbi-was-deemed-armed-and-dangerous-and-had-prior-terrorist-event-on-file-55417/

    Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was deemed ‘armed and dangerous’ and had prior terrorist event on file

  20. http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/54734

    It revealed that Alharbi was “armed and dangerous,” admitted to the country under “special advisory option usually reserved for visiting politicians, VIPs, or journalists,” and that he was granted his status “without a full vetting.” Moreover, despite officials explaining that Alharbi’s once pending deportation was due to an expired visa, the event file reveals his visa is good until 2016. It further reveals that he was admitted to the country in Boston, even as it says he is a student at the University of Findlay, in Findlay, Ohio.

    Beck went further still. “When a file is created in the system, the author(s) are notified via email when it is accessed and given the email address of the person accessing, so there is a record within the government data system of who was there,” he noted. “It was amended to remove the deportation reference, then someone later went in and tried to destroy both the original event file and an amended versions. We won’t say who at this time, but copies have already been made,” he warned.

    Beck explained to his audience that an event file is part of the Patriot Act, and that the designation 212 3B given to “a Saudi in the hospital” means that “you were a terrorist, you we’re engaged in terrorism, or you are about to be engaged in terrorism.” Beck further notes that once someone is designated in such a manner, “it is extraordinarily difficult to put it in, and you do not put it in, and then take it off.” According to Beck, only officials at the State Department or the National Counterterrorism Center are capable of revoking the designation.

    The cover of the event file contained equally important information, including that fact that Alharbi was “an exact match” to “No Fly subject TPN#1037506192,” and that “derogatory information” reviewed and approved by two high level agents, Chief Watch Commander Maimbourg and Watch Commander Mayfield, “was found to be sufficient to request a Visa revocation.”

    Then came the most damming revelation of all. “Subject has One (1) prior event #1648067.” “That means this guy doesn’t have one event,” Beck explained. “When they opened this at the hospital they found, he’s already in the system. He’s already a 212 3B. He has another terrorist event under his belt.”

  21. Russian Calls Out Barack Obama As A Communist
    (quote)
    Barack Obama is called a pure Communist by the Russian Press and many in Russia are making that statement. Maybe that is why the Boston Bombers could get away with what they did. It seems that Russia knew that the older brother was one to watch and they informed our intelligence community of it, yet the FBI once again failed because they “did not want to inflame people with Jihad connections or ideology!”

    Obama has declared that the United States will not “attack” those who hate the United States and instead, Obama wants to try to appease the situation in the terrorists’ favor. One individual, a man named Xavier Lerma, who wrote many articles about Obama and what he has done, along with calling the people of the United States stupid and ignorant for putting him in office has openly called Obama a Communist! His article, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” discusses why what Obama is doing now has been done before in Russia and it failed.

    Muslim Brotherhood About To Be Installed In Syria

    Posted on April 25, 2013 by guns2jihadists

    The Washington Post is reporting that the anti-Semitic Muslim Brotherhood is opening offices in Syria in an attempt to ‘dominate’ a fractured Syrian opposition.

    This is almost certainly an attempt by the Obama administration to install a Muslim Brotherhood puppet in the event that the Assad regime falls. It may also mean that the administration is about to do what Sen. John McCain has been demanding and to arm the rebels directly in order to hasten the regime’s demise.

    The Obama administration has been one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s keenest backers in Egypt providing the regime with dozens of F-16 fighter jets, Abrams tanks and just last month releasing $250m in foreign aid.

    Christians in Syria perhaps have the most to fear from a Muslim Brotherhood take over of their country as Catholic Online reports that Egyptian Muslims are murdering Coptic Christians in the country “with impunity”:-

  29. The Composite Presidency
    Glenn Fairman

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/04/the_composite_presidency.html

    Composite girlfriends, composite birth certificates, composite intellect, composite childhood, composite facts from which a sanitized version of a shadowy life is composed and crafted for public consumption. The compression or adulteration of Mr. Obama’s life is posited as an act of obfuscation — a misdirection from the more troubling aspects of a cipher. His is a character we know little about and in whom the media organs are borderline criminally culpable in foregoing their customary ideological proctology exam in obsequious service to their Favorite Son. Little is verifiable about his character and intellectual résumé. Records are hidden away, people have been “talked to” or bought off, and the leading cast of players who could throw an antiseptic light on this presidential enigma are languishing conveniently at room temperature.

    snip…..
    An aura of self-importance, hubris, and condescension permeates this composite President cum Tyrant; and as the cracks begin to form and widen in the greasepaint, the cheap veneer of Hope and Change Rainbows that serve as rhetorical camouflage for an empty suit has all but dissolved. Even the casual partisan has lost faith and many more are beginning to believe that The Composite Man is indeed motivated by the tendrils of malevolent intent. They are beginning to understand that behind the compositry of truth crouches a stinking lie.

    snip….
    We can ill afford to sleep and dream anymore, as it has become readily discernible that something altogether horrendous has befallen America. This Composite President is actively and aggressively doing everything in his power to destroy a dream much beloved. There can be little doubt anymore that Barack Obama’s vision of power is consistent with the corruption and dissolution of our Constitutional patrimony. And unless we are prepared to forcefully battle him tooth and claw in the months and years to come, there will be little left of the ancien regime to recommend to history — except as a mournful and barren epitaph to strong hearts that could no longer prevail.

  31. O’Reilly is scared to report the truth or to criticize Obama. I am not sure why, but he has become as bad as CNN. It is very obvious. I won’t watch him anymore.

  32. Big news here in South Bend, Indiana is that the former head of the democrat party in St. Joseph County, plus a cohort, were found guilty of election fraud in 2008 for forging signatures to place Obama on the ballot. It only took the jury 3.5 hours to find them guilty after 2 other cohorts testified against them in return for lighter sentences. They will be sentenced in June. It would be nice if more cases would be prosecuted for the election fraud that occurred in 2008 and 2012, but at least this is a start.

    “Benedict Arnold II: Allen West Turns Coat on Doctor Terrence Lakin; On His Officer’s Oath; On the Constitution; And On ‘We the People’ To ‘Preserve and Defend’ His Political Aspirations.”

    “In Dr. Terry Lee Lakin’s book ‘Officer’s Oath—Why My Vow To Defend The Constitution Demanded That I Sacrifice My Career,’ Dr. Lakin relates an incident where he attended a fundraiser for Allen West who was running for Congress.

    In fact, Dr. Lakin relates that when Col. West was asked if he would do it again the former Company Commander said, “If it is about the lives of my men and their safety I’d go through Hell with a gasoline can.” And that on the way out of the fundraiser, Allen West stopped by and told Dr. Lakin, “You are doing what is right.”
    Mr. West responded to their request that he support the effort to publicize the ongoing crimes of Mister Obama with an explanation that he would not do so because doing so might adversely affect his future political aspirations.”

    Re: Cowardice

    Dear Congressman West:

    As a battle-tested soldier, I am sure you understand the definition of cowardice. I am equally sure you do not apply that label to yourself. I am writing to tell you that I apply that label to you, as I think you are demonstrating the cowardice you so decry.
    Your self-serving note about Lt. Col Lakin being ‘led astray’ just lumps you in the same category as every other elected official who has silently stood by while the Constitution has been usurped. Dr. Lakin’s decision was his own, and just because you can’t see the usurpation that millions of Americans do doesn’t give you a right to blithely call him a man who has been ‘led astray’. With this kind of attitude, how did you command any respect from your soldiers?
    I know you don’t care to examine the facts of Mr. Obama as you are planning a long stay as a so-called ‘representative’ from Florida. In fact you only seem to represent yourself. Here are a few things you should be aware of:
    [go to link]
    Are you a racist, Congressman West? Is that why you won’t examine Mr. Obama, because of his skin color? Or are you too happy with your perks and position? Are you ‘politically correct’ and afraid to stand? I am sorry I ever promoted your candidacy, or had you on my blog for so long, or donated to your campaign.
    No guts, no glory. You sir, have no guts. I am offended that you could talk such a good line and then just fall in with the other cowards who could care less about the Constitution or the American people.”

    O’Reilly is scared to report the truth or to criticize Obama. I am not sure why, but he has become as bad as CNN. It is very obvious. I won’t watch him anymore.

    ********************************************************
    I was encouraged by Oreally blasting the muslim trying to defend Terrorists the other night on his show but his treatment of Beck is very disappointing.

    O’Reilly, as reported here in the past, is almost as big a narcissist as Obama.

  36. Is it not obvious that bo is planning to arm the muslim brotherhood to fight against American Citizens just as he armed the musBros in Egypt and Libya? Soon bo will have his musBros doing to American Citizens the same as they did to the Americans in Benghazi.

    Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz said Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security is using roughly 1,000 rounds of ammunition more per person than the U.S. Army, as he and other lawmakers sharply questioned DHS officials on their “massive” bullet buys.

    “It is entirely … inexplicable why the Department of Homeland Security needs so much ammunition,” Chaffetz, R-Utah, said at a hearing.

    “Beck is observing how this regime sweeps everything under the rug. Evidence does not matter, nothing sticks to these criminals, and to most Americans if it ain’t on the nightly news….it didn’t happen.

    Beck is now on the receiving end of what he himself has been doing to those trying to expose the truth about the usurper, identity fraud, con-artist squatting in the White House.

    How does it feel Glenn?”

    A searing new Interim Progress Report released by the GOP chairmen of five House committees reveals the disturbing extent of the Obama administration’s deceit and manipulation over the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As the 43-page document details, not only was gross incompetence to blame for the success of the attack that cost four Americans their lives, but a concerted effort at the highest levels of government was undertaking to cover up the debacle, deceive the public and shield officials, including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama, from responsibility.

    Dividing the timeline into three sections — before, during and after the attack — the report paints a damning picture of the Hillary Clinton-led State Department, which knew “the threat environment in Benghazi was high and that the Benghazi compound was vulnerable and unable to withstand an attack, yet the Department continued to systematically withdraw security personnel.”

  41. well i told you so a few weeks ago . the democratic party of alabama has submitted a different copy of a birth certificate to the supreme court there . this copy has a different safety paper background . it seems larry klayman and other attorneys will never learn to demand the original , paper copy of the obama birth certificate along with the microfilm . for heavens sake , why is that such a hard thing to do ?

    DEBKA’s counter-terrorism sources say the investigation’s best bet would be to finally follow up on the treasure trove the Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation – the FSB – relayed to Washington in 2011. They not only fingered Tamerlan, who died in a shootout with the Boston police, as a “suspect Islamist terrorist” but revealed that he had toured radical Islamic mosques in Dagestan and Chechnya in search of contacts in jihadist terror groups.
    The Russians also appended a whole list of terrorist suspects of Caucasian descent in the Boston area.

  44. AMBULANCE CALLED to Home of Anzor Tsarnaev – Father of Boston Bombers

    Posted by Jim Hoft on Friday, April 26, 2013, 9:23 AM

    Yesterday Anzor and Zubeidat Tsarnaeva held a press conference. The parents of the Boston terrorists blasted the United States after their sons bombed the Boston Marathon. Zubeidat blamed the US for ruining her sons:
    “My sons were framed by US authorities!”

    Today, Anzor Tsarnaev postponed his trip to the United States and an ambulance was called to his home.
    Riehl World View and CNN reported:

    Their father, Anzor, was to fly to the United States as soon as Friday to cooperate in the investigation into the attacks. But his wife called an ambulance for him Thursday.

    She told CNN’s Nick Paton Walsh that her husband was delaying the trip for health reasons. She wouldn’t elaborate.

    Anzor Tsarnaev agreed to fly to the United States after FBI agents and Russian officials spoke with them for hours this week at the family’s home.

    Zubeidat Tsarnaev was arrested in the US for shoplifting at a Lord and Taylor department store.

    “Absolute evidence that Obama’s bona fides are fraudulent”

    “I don’t know how I missed this

    The Birther community has been working with Obama’s “long-form” birth certificate since it’s release on April 27, 20011.

    There have been dozens of forensic investigative articles and videos demonstrating that the document is fraudulent, but the evidence that Obama’s long-form birth certificate, as well as the newspaper “birth announcements,” are fraudulent and clearly created by the same person(s), are part of the artifacts themselves — and it’s been right in front of our eyes all along.

    It’s the address!

    6085 Kalanianaole Highway

    Barack H. Obama (Senior — the Kenyan) never lived there! Stanley Ann Dunham never lived there! Stanley Armour and Madelyn Lee (nee Payne) Dunham never lived there! Barack “Barry” Obama never lived there!

    Orland Scott and Thelma Lefforge owned and occupied the expensive house at 6085 Kalanianaole Highway before, during and after 1961.

    Those two documents, the foundation of Obama’s eligibility claim, prove his birth story is bogus, and that he is a criminal occupant of the Oval Office.”

    Kerry’s Shocking Demand to Israel: Free Terrorists

    It may seem amazing, but in the wake of the Boston attack the Obama administration is pressuring Israel to free terrorists guilty of particularly heinous acts of murder.

    On Wednesday the Knesset “discussed America’s demand that Israel release terrorists as a good will gesture to the Palestinian Authority.” The demand is part of intensive efforts by Secretary of State John Kerry to revive Israeli-Palestinian negotiations on a peace settlement—efforts that are amazing in their own right considering that the Palestinian Authority has consistently shown for 20 years that it is incapable of accepting Israel and not interested in a state “living in peace” beside it.

    Abbas’s preconditions for resuming negotiations are the same as they have been for years: Israel committing beforehand to a withdrawal to indefensible borders, prohibiting Jewish building in Judea, Samaria, and parts of Jerusalem, and releasing terrorists from prison. Israel is reportedly, at this point, rejecting all these demands.

    Meanwhile the terrorists the U.S. is pushing Israel to release include the killers of:

    ● Amnon Pomerantz, stoned by a mob in Gaza in 1990 and then burned to death in his car

    ● Yigal Vaknin, stabbed to death in an orchard in 1993

    ● Rachel Weiss and her three young sons Ephraim, Netanel, and Raphael, all burned to death in a firebomb attack on a bus in the Jordan Valley in 1988.

    ● Menachem Stern, a 64-year-old acclaimed historian stabbed to death in Jerusalem in 1989

    This news just burns me up! Of all the outrageous demands that our country could make on Israel, this one is close to the top of the list.

  48. free speech ,
    you fail to mention as so many zionist supporters do about the tens of thousands of palestanians including thousands of women and children that the zionist government has murdered with missles , planes , and tanks etc. from the u. s. paid for by our tax money under the false pretense that the zionists are an ally of the u. s. i recommend you stop believing the media on that and the politicians in washington that constantly spit thhat lie out about a great ally . thhe zionists control the u. s. media and the politicians say the ally line regular because almost all of congress is on the zionist payroll .


  49. I’m a Christian and am more concerned about bo’s musBros crucifying Christians in front the bo’s muslim PIG Pal morsi’s Palace and burning Christians alive in Christian Churches throughout bo’s musBro Egypt.

  50. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2012/09/horror_of_black_christian_crucifixion_in_egypt_yemen.html

    Shocking evidence has emerged from the Mideast about an escalation in the persecution of Christians in Muslim countries. According to a report in Lebanon Today, at least one man was crucified and two others were otherwise executed by the jihadist group Ansar al-Shariah that had taken control of a region in Yemen and imposed Islamic religious law, known as shariah. The jihadists accused the trio of being agents or spies for the United States and killed them several months ago during a period when the Yemeni government was challenged by riots and rebellion. The MEMRI website has photographs of the jihadists’ victims .

    Egypt’s Christians in Grave Danger as Muslim Brotherhood Crucifies Opponents

    It was reported just today, by Raymond Ibrahim, that the Muslim Brotherhood has crucified people, accused of being against Muhammad Morsi, naked and on trees in front of the presidential palace. Raymond Ibrahim reports:

    El Balad adds that the supporters of Tawfik Okasha, another vocal critic of President Morsi—the one who widely disseminated the graphic video of a Muslim apostate being slaughtered to cries of “Allahu Akbar”—gathered around the presidential palace, only to be surrounded by Brotherhood supporters, who “attacked them with sticks, knives, and Molotov cocktails, crucifying some of them on trees, leading to the deaths of two and the wounding of dozens.”

  53. Danny,
    What about the hundreds, and probably thousands of missiles the Palestinians have hurled into Israel over the last number of years? And
    what about their constant avowal to drive Israel into the sea? All of this talk about the evils of zionism is just really a cover for naked anti-semitism, which many of us abhor and refuse to buy into.
