Germany and Genocide - Again by Kenneth R. Timmerman

March 25, 2013
The overwhelming majority of technical expertise, know-how, and design information of the Iraqi dictator's chemical weapons plants came from German companies. The nerve and mustard gas was produced in German-built factories in Samarra and Fallujah. The government of Chancellor Angela Merkel refused to accept responsibility for the actions of German companies.

Jihad in Syria by Aymenn Jawad Al-Tamimi

March 20, 2013
How do the jihadist rebels generally conceive of jihad in the Syrian civil war?

One useful way to look into this question is to examine the Qur'anic verses pertaining to warfare cited in propaganda statements. In this context, one recurring verse is 22:39, which runs as follows: 'Permission [to fight] has been granted to those who are being fought, because they have been wronged. And verily is God able to grant them victory.'

A Lapse into Seriousness : A UN report shows what could have been / Daniel Meyerowitz-Katz

Did Israel `Apologize’ to Turkey? Well, No, Not Exactly By Barry Rubin

March 23, 2013
mavi- Israel apologizes to Turkey, reads every headline. That simply isn’t true in the sense it is taken to imply. To understand what happened one must examine the long negotiations on this issue.

Understanding the Current State of the Iranian Nuclear Challenge Dore Gold

March 24, 2013
To produce its first atomic bomb from 20 percent enriched uranium, Iran would need a stockpile of 225 kilograms, which upon further enrichment to the weapons-grade level would yield the 25 kilograms of uranium metal for a nuclear warhead. Since it began enriching 20 percent uranium, Iran had produced 280 kilograms of this material – well above the Israeli red line drawn by Prime Minister Netanyahu.

Obama wins hearts and minds in Israel / Sharyn Mittelman

Mar 22 2013
US President Barack Obama's trip to Israel and the Palestinian Territories has been vitally important - and apparently highly successful. In only three short days Obama seems to have been able to address core issues that appeared to be straining the US-Israel relationship and press ‘reset'.

Assessing President Obama's Trip* by Alan Dershowitz

March 22, 2013
Now that President Obama is on his way back from his trip to the Middle East, its potential impact can be assessed. All in all it was a success, despite some pitfalls.

As Obama Continues Visit, His Themes Are Confirmed By Barry Rubin

21 Mar 2013
As President Barack Obama continued his visit to Israel the themes remained the same as the ones I covered here. The two main public events were a speech by Obama to Israeli university students and a joint press conference with Palestinian Authority (PA) leader Mahmoud Abbas.

Calling for Protests in Israel by Shoshana Bryen

March 22, 2013
After years of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic indoctrination, in the schools and general media, it is not realistic to believe that the Palestinians desire what the President told the Israelis to desire: "A future in which Jews, Muslim and Christians can all live in peace and greater prosperity in this Holy Land." And maybe that is why the President did not say it to the Palestinians.

An Israeli Apology to Turkey by Daniel Pipes

March 22, 2013
On Feb. 27, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan told a conference in Vienna, "Just like Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, Islamophobia must be regarded as a crime against humanity." His calling the Jewish nationalist movement that built the State of Israel a "crime against humanity" prompted widespread criticism, including by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

Obama: Peace only possible through negotiations and mutual recognition

22 March 2013
Wrapping up a three day visit to Israel, US President Barack Obama paid his respects to its heroes and to victims of the Holocaust, again solemnly affirming the Jewish state's right to exist. Accompanied by Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Obama laid wreaths at the graves of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism who died in 1904 before realizing his dream of a Jewish homeland, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, who was assassinated in 1995.

Palestinians: We Hate You, USA, So Please Pay Us More by Khaled Abu Toameh

March 22, 2013
Many Arabs and Muslims hate the U.S. because it stands in the way of fulfilling their dream of destroying Israel. The strong sentiments against Israel and the U.S. are the direct result of decades of indoctrination and incitement.

The anti-US protests that erupted in the West Bank and Gaza Strip before and during President Barack Obama's serve as a reminder that many Palestinians continue to loathe the U.S., primarily because of its support for Israel.

Norwegian Foreign Ministry admits giving "imprecise" information about PA use of foreign aid by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Mar. 20, 2013
The Information "obtained from the PA" and PM Salam Fayyad about the PA's using foreign aid
to pay terrorist salaries
Norway's Foreign Ministry:
"It is unfortunate that the information that was first communicated
[by the Foreign Ministry] to Parliament and which was based
on information obtained from the PA at the time, in retrospect,
is imprecise."

Norway's Foreign Ministry's current statement
corroborates PMW reports,
which the Norwegian Foreign Ministry
has questioned until now

Report from China: What Keeps the Muslim World Back? by Harold Rhode

March 21, 2013
Because the Chinese direct their energy toward the future, and rarely focus on past grievances, their approach possibly offers more hope for a better life, in which their people's standard of living increases, and China -- from their point of view -- takes what they regard as its rightful place on the world stage.

European Jihadists: The Latest Export by Soeren Kern

March 21, 2013
"I ended up running for my life, barefoot and handcuffed, while British jihadists -- young men with south London accents -- shot to kill. And not a Syrian in sight. This wasn't what I had expected." — John Cantlie, British photographer

More than 1,000 Muslims from across Europe are currently active as Islamic jihadists, or holy warriors, in Syria, which has replaced Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia as the main destination for militant Islamists seeking to obtain immediate combat experience with little or no official scrutiny.

Mar 22 2013
It is one of the seminal images that appeared over and over again in the early stages of last November's Second Gaza-Israel war.

Distraught Palestinian father Jihad Masharawi, holding the dead body of his 11-month-old son, Omar, who was reported to have been the victim of an Israeli rocket hitting the family home.

The European Union and Hezbollah / David Harris

March 21, 2013
If an organization talks like a terrorist group, walks like a terrorist group, and behaves like a terrorist group, is it?

If the question is posed to, say, the United States, Canada, and the Netherlands, the answer is clear. For these countries, Hezbollah is a terrorist group, and they have designated it as such.

But for the European Union, the answer is different. For many years, some EU countries have pressed other member states to join together in adding Hezbollah to the EU terrorism list, alongside Hamas, but to no avail.

Francois Hollande Praises Anti-Semitic Writer by Michel Gurfinkiel

March 20, 2013
On March 17 of this year, François Hollande — the socialist president of France — attended the ceremonies held in Toulouse marking the first anniversary of what is now commonly referred to as "the Mohamed Merah affair."

On March 11, 2012, this French citizen of Algerian descent, who had joined an Islamist network and had been trained in Pakistan, killed a French soldier in Toulouse. On March 15, he shot three more soldiers in Montauban: two died on the spot; the third was severely wounded in the head and is now quadriplegic.

Dutch Government Fueling Anti-Semitic Feelings by Peter Martino

March 20, 2013
Allowing taxpayers' money to flow once again to websites such as Electronic Intifada, which propagate anti-Semitism, would be a clear indication not only of the Dutch government's unwillingness to fight anti-Semitism, but of its willingness to support it.

Last November, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte, leader of the Dutch Liberal Party, exchanged his coalition partners, the Christian Democrats and the Freedom Party, for the Labor Party. Foreign Minister Uri Rosenthal, a Liberal, was replaced by Labor politician Frans Timmermans.

Rockets from Gaza hit Israel as Obama visits Ramallah

21 March 2013
As US President Barack Obama went to Ramallah to meet with the Palestinian leadership there, terrorists in the Gaza Strip fired two Kassam rockets at the southern Israeli town of Sderot. One of the missiles exploded in the courtyard of a house in Sderot early in the morning, causing damage but no injuries, said Israel Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. The other landed in an open field. Sirens wailed in Sderot shortly after the 7 a.m. rocket attack, forcing residents on their way to work or school to run to bomb shelters.

Americans behind 9/11; Hitler greater than Roosevelt - the PA’s welcome to Obama by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Mar. 19, 2013
Official PA daily:
History is written by the victors,
therefore "Muslim terrorists" are falsely blamed for 9/11
and Nazism is prosecuted instead of honored

"Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor"

by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik

Two days before US President Barack Obama's visit to Israel and the PA, the official PA daily chose to print anti-American hate speech along with pro-Hitler comments in an op-ed:

Lord Ahmed: Disgrace to Britain by Douglas Murray

March 18, 2013
Instead of waiting and appointing Muslims who were qualified and decent examples of moderation and tolerance, they appointed this extremist.

The Media Imperialists by Samuel Westrop

March 20, 2013
If there is Western "imperialism" at all -- defined by many in the media as the harmful effects of Western hegemony -- it can be found in the Guardian and the New York Times, as their journalists impose their brand of "moderation" onto the people of the East.

Why President Obama's Concept of the Middle East Will Fail: Just Listen to It By Barry Rubin

17 Mar 2013 10:21 AM PDT
To put it plainly, the press briefing supposed to indicate how President Barack Obama’s thinks about Israel on the eve of his trip here, is a combination of fantasy and insult. It is likely that the Obama Administration made such statements for show, to persuade the Arabic-speaking world on the even of Obama's trip that the United States is striving for peace, is not acting like a puppet (or should one say, ally? of Israel) and using its influence to change Israeli policy even as it does nothing of the sort.

Muslim Cleric Calls U.S. Aid to Egypt 'Jizya' by Raymond Ibrahim

March 19, 2013
As earlier suggested, the wonderful thing about Salafis—those extra "radical" Muslims who seek to emulate as literally as possible prophet Muhammad's teachings and habits—is that they are so unabashed and frank about what they believe. Such is the degree of brainwashing that they have undergone. Unlike the Muslim Brotherhood, which was founded much earlier, doublespeak is not second nature to the Salafis.

Obama in Israel: A new beginning?By Pinhas Inbari

18 March 2013
President Obama is expected to make his first official presidential visit to Israel this week. It is widely assumed that the main issue the President will discuss with the Israeli government will be nuclear Iran. However, it is not known to what extent the Palestinian issue will be discussed, if at all. While the president is keeping the cards close to his chest, it is worth examining the past four years of the Obama administration in order to gage his perspective on the issue.
