To Hell With the United Nations! Welcome Israel!

Edited transcript of the Eidelberg Report, Israel National Radio, September 7, 2008.

The United Nations is the most pernicious, malevolent, and corrupt organizations on earth. Israel should quit this den of iniquity.

“Praiseworthy is the man who walked not in the counsel of the wicked, and stood not in the path of the sinful, and sat not in the session of scorners” (Psalms 1:1.)

 

The UN’s Anti-Israel Vendetta

For decades, the United Nations has passed countless resolutions condemning Israel for its actions against the Palestinians, while almost never formally addressing Israel's security concerns and the ongoing campaign of Palestinian terrorism against Israelis. The UN General Assembly has become an international forum for promoting Palestinian statehood and delegitimizing Israel.

Before Oslo, the General Assembly either “condemned” or “deplored” or “censured” or “denounced” Israel 321 times» Continue reading “To Hell With the United Nations! Welcome Israel!”

The Trial

'The    Israel is playing a waiting game. She knows that Iran driven by historical memory, overweening pride, and Allah’s cult of hatred, will strike; but Israel will have the warning time required to strike first—and the Jews, victims of the Holocaust, will indeed strike first. This will be the beginning of a new Middle East, that hardly anyone dreams of. Even before Iran is devastated, the Israel Defense Forces will deliver crippling blows to Hezbollah, Hamas, Fatah, and Syria. Israel will eliminate the entire terrorist network west of the Jordan River. Countless Arabs will flee from Judea and Samaria as well as from Gaza. The peace charade will be over. The mendacity and puerilities of Lilliputian politicians will be silenced. The Lion of Judah will have triumphed.

оссийская карта: ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона

Перевод Аркадия ГинЕбурга. Translation by Arkadiy Ginzburg.

оссийская карта:
ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона
Пол Ьйдельберг

Не может быть сомнения в том, что 'арак Хуссейн Обама раЕыгрывает мусульманскую карту в ущерб ИЕраилю. Его умиротворение Ирана, эпицентра глобального террориЕма, особенно тревожно для американцев, равно как и для иЕраильтян. Советники Обамы по 'лижнему 'остоку общались не только с Хамасом, иранской марионеткой, но также и с Сирией, террористическим государством. Правительство Обамы помогает сейчас палестинской террористической власти основать военную тренировочную баЕу в Иерихоне. 'Nё это обосновывает отч'т в гаЕете Israel Today от 19 марта 2009 г. Я цитирую:

'ывший глава официального раЕведывательного управления США предупреждает, что администрация Обамы блиЕка к тому, чтобы сломать длительную дружбу Америки с ИЕраилем и, воЕможно, даже предпринять шаги к ликвидации государства ИЕраиль. Говоря на условиях анонимности с Дугласом Хагманном иЕ северо-восточной раЕведывательной сети, этот источник скаЕал: «Администрация Обамы… готовится предоставить больше поддержки арабским странам пут'м финансовой и военной помощи, паралиЕуя оборонительные усилия ИЕраиля и толкая ИЕраиль на уступки давлению необоснованных требований, направленных в конечном сч'те к его политическому уничтожению как нации».

В статье “Sleeping with the Devil” («Сон вместе с дьяволом») бывший агент Ц У оберт 'аэр покаЕывает, что бывшие высокие официальные лица в 'ашингтоне в восторге от финансовых сделок с Саудовской Аравией. Саудовцы побуждают США усилить поддержку палестинского государства. Саудовские нефтедоллары испольЕуются на строительстве мечетей и на покупку влияния в американских университетах. Они вбивают клин между Америкой и ИЕраилем, и Обама ускоряет этот процесс. » Continue reading “ оссийская карта: ИЕраиль должен дистанцироваться от 'ашингтона”

The Hamas Covenant of Death

“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it …” Thus begins the Hamas Covenant of Death officially known as “The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement.” To grasp the true nature of the war that is being waged against the Jewish State of Israel, and not only by the Arabs in Judea, Samaria, and Gaza, let us examine this Covenant of Death.

In discussing Islam's war against the Jewish state, the Covenant refers to the Arabs of Judea, Samaria, and Gaza as but a single “squadron” of the “vast Islamic world.” “Our struggle against the Jews is very great,” and this struggle will go on “until the enemy is vanquished and Allah's victory is realized.”

The Covenant also refers to the Islamic Resistance Movement as “one of the wings of [the] Moslem Brotherhood in Palestine.” It calls upon all Moslems to “raise the banner of Jihad in the face of the oppressors, so that they would rid the land and the people of their uncleanness, vileness and evils.” Contrary to the puerilities of the media, the Moslem Brotherhood is not a fanatical sect of Islam; it is Islam authentic and resurgent. » Continue reading “The Hamas Covenant of Death”

Only Dead Fish Go With the Stream

Comments submitted by Prof. Eidelberg, Dec 30, 2008 on article: Insight into Obama's Middle East Policy? at DanielPipes.org .

Judging from Daniel Pipes' lucid critique of the Bush administration's failings in the Middle East, the Brookings/CFR study, Restoring the Balance: A Middle East Strategy for the Next President, seems to be following the same path with respect to Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Its co-authors, Richard Haass and Martin Indyk seem wedded to the tried and ineffectual path of negotiating with despotic regimes. They ignore the global ambitions of Iranian President Ahmadinejad—basically a disciple of the Ayatollah Khomeini. They virtually ignore the geo-strategic dimensions of the Iranian threat. Iran is not only the epicenter of international terrorism. Of immediate concern is Iran's development of nuclear weapons and its present ability to turn the spigot off the oil flowing through the Persian Gulf.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's incantation “death to America” is not merely a metaphor. Nor should the next president downplay Ahmadinejad's vow to wipe Israel off the map—something Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority has already done in its maps of the Middle East. » Continue reading “Only Dead Fish Go With the Stream”

Alexander Hamilton

Alexander Hamilton was regarded by no less than Talleyrand as the greatest statesman of his age, greater than Pitt, Fox, and Napoleon. Hamilton was not only George Washington's Secretary of the Treasury, he was, in effect, Washington’s “prime minister.” He wrote most of Washington's “Farewell Address,” widely regarded as America's greatest state paper.

Hamilton’s state papers on Manufactures and on a National Bank contributed greatly to America’s ascendancy as the most powerful nation on earth. No less significant are his contributions to The Federalist Papers, whose essays on presidential government are unsurpassed in depth and clarity. Would that Israel had statesmen to assimilate Hamilton’s wisdom and apply it to the reconstruction of Israel’s decrepit system of multiparty cabinet government.

But I have another reason for speaking of Hamilton, especially now in the context of a secret war that has been going on between the United States and Iran since 1979.

Let’s first go back to 1793, when France was under the Directory, which in fact was a military dictatorship. The issue arose as to whether the United States should accord the French government diplomatic recognition. » Continue reading “Alexander Hamilton”

John Bolton and Iran’s Development of Nuclear Weapons

Edited transcript of the Eidelberg Report, Israel National Radio, November 17, 2008.

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is a man of superlative intellect, political integrity and moral clarity. Germany’s President Angela Merkel told President George W. Bush, “I like your ambassador to the UN more than I like mine…. I understand [him] much better than my own. I’ve been thinking about having your ambassador represent Germany.”

What follows is based very much on Chapter 12 of Bolton’s book Surrender is Not an Option: Defending America at the United Nations and Abroad (2007). The chapter is entitled “Iran in the Security Council: The EU-3 Finds New Ways to Give In.” EU-3 stands for Britain, France, and Germany—three members of the European Union. Despite Bolton’s heroic efforts, the EU-3 failed to obtain Security Council resolutions calling for serious sanctions against Iran’s nuclear weapons program, a program that violated the International Non-Proliferation Treaty.

Unfortunately, Bolton was encumbered by Colin Powell, secretary of state during George W. Bush’s first term, and Condoleezza Rice, who succeeded Powell during Bush’s second term. Neither of these secretaries of state possessed an adequate understanding of Iran. Iran is the key player of the “axis of evil.” Iranian control of the oil flowing through the Persian Gulf would make it a superpower if this nation of 70 million people produced nuclear weapons. Imagine how Islamism would skyrocket throughout the world if Iran obtained, through its proxies, control of Jerusalem. » Continue reading “John Bolton and Iran’s Development of Nuclear Weapons”

The Most Dangerous Enemy

Iran has been at war with the United States and Israel for thirty years—ever since the Iranian Revolution initiated by the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979. I dare say this is the most far-reaching revolution in human history. Iran is the epicenter of international terrorism. Its ultimate goal, however, is to restore the Persian Empire and spread Shia Islam throughout the world. This is not a mere fantasy.

Iran now controls southern Iraq, including Basra from which Iraq ships its oil through the Strait of Hormuz. All of Iraq will fall to Iran once the Americans leave. Meanwhile, Iran is gaining decisive influence on Syria. Iran’s proxy, Hezbollah, virtually rules Lebanon. Hamas is another Iranian proxy, and Tehran has its sights on the Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority.

Of global significance, Iran controls the world’s spigot of oil flowing through the Persian Gulf, This nation of 70 million people can wreck the world’s economy. If Iran’s economic power is backed by nuclear weapons—in process of development—Iran will control the Middle East, and much more. » Continue reading “The Most Dangerous Enemy”

Barack Obama and World War IV

Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives, says, “Every [American] citizen interested in our survival as a free and safe country should read [Norman Podhoretz] World War IV: The Long Struggle Against Islamofascism, 2007, 2008.”

I fully agree, and would only add, please do so before the November election.—Paul Eidelberg


Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich and former CIA Director R. James Woolsey express the highest praise for Norman Podhoretz’s book World War IV: The Long Struggle Again Islamofascism (NY: Vintage: 2007, 2008).

Iran, a nation of 70 million people, is the epicenter of Islamofascism. Its government may deploy nuclear weapons in less than a year. Senator Barack Obama regards Iran as a mere “nuisance.” This is enough to indicate that an Obama presidency would be disastrous.

Obama is so infatuated with his oratorical skills that he thinks he can persuade Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to halt Iran’s development of nuclear weapons. The junior senator of Illinois Obama ignores the fact that five years of American and European diplomacy and sanctions have only given Iran five more years to develop a nuclear arsenal. » Continue reading “Barack Obama and World War IV”

The Futility of Negotiating With Iran

Former CIA covert operative Robert Baer asserts that Iran, an Islamic nation of 70 million people, is building an empire in the Middle East, believing it should be the “citadel of Islam.” He warns that Iran is probably months away from war with Israel. That’s the message of his new book, “The Devil We Know: Dealing with the New Iranian Superpower.”

Baer argues that Iran so situated that it may have more ability to alter America’s destiny than China or Russia. “With Chinese Silkworm missiles pointed toward the Strait of Hormuz, Iran has the ability to cripple the world economy in a matter of minutes by shutting down the flow of oil. That’s even before it gains a nuclear missile.”

Apparently, Baer regards Iran not as a messianic terror group such as al-Qaida, but as a nation with imperial aspirations like the former Soviet Union. “Historic compulsions inspire Iran’s leaders to re-create a Persian empire throughout the Middle East and Central Asia.”

This is dangerously misleading. Islam has always been a messianic terrorist entity with imperial aspirations. In his superb book Islamic Imperialism, Efraim Karsh documents Islam’s world-historic aspirations as follows: » Continue reading “The Futility of Negotiating With Iran”
