      Obama Gives Biased Speech, Inimical To Israel, Supportive Of False Palestinian/Arab Claims -- Indicating He May Become Most Hostile President To Israel Ever

      June 5, 2009
      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
      Contact: Morton A. Klein
      Phone: 212-481-1500


      Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) National President Morton A. Klein has made the following statement regarding President Barack Obama's President Barack Obama's speech delivered in Cairo yesterday:



      "President Obama made some positive comments about Israel, stating that the U.S.-Israel bond is `unbreakable' and criticized those who threaten Israel's destruction and repeat vile stereotypes about Jews – without, however, naming those who do so like Iran, Syria, and Abbas' Fatah-controlled Palestinian Authority (PA) (through the Fatah Constitution, PA-controlled publications, curricula, media, mosques, schools and youth camps).



      "Overall, however, this was primarily a strongly biased speech, inimical to Israel, supportive of false Palestinian and Arab claims against Israel, blatantly factually inaccurate – inaccuracies that always benefited the anti-Israel Palestinian, Arab and Muslim cause.



      "For example, Obama falsely claimed the Palestinian Arabs were `displaced' by Israel in 1948; falsely claimed the Palestinian Arabs have been suffering trying to establish their state for 60 years (they could have had a state in 1937, 1948 or in 2000, but turned down each opportunity). Obama also bizarrely claimed that he longs for the day Jerusalem is secure for Jews, Muslims and Christians even though this has been precisely the case since Israel reunited the city under its control in 1967.



      "Just as egregious, Obama claimed there are 7 million Muslims in America when major studies show there are between 1.3 and 2.7 million Muslims. He strongly implied that Palestinian suffering was equivalent to Jewish suffering during the Holocaust. He also seemed to equate the Palestinian situation to that of U.S. Blacks during slavery and Blacks during South African apartheid. The assumption, just barely left unsaid, is that Israeli Jews are the oppressors.



      "The President even claimed the Muslim country of Morocco was the first to recognize the United States when in fact, it was the Netherlands; and that Muslim Cordoba and Anadulus were shining examples of Islamic tolerance, when a cursory examination of historical scholarship on the subject shows them to have been nothing of the kind: Jews and Christians lived under religiously-sanctioned discrimination, could not worship in public or build new synagogues and churches and had to pay the jizya poll tax because they were not Muslims.



      "Despite the fact that President Obama declared that he would be totally `honest' in discussing Mideast issues, he said nothing about Palestinian Arab and Saudi Arabian persecution of Christians. (Even the Pope recently expressed dismay by the huge numbers of Christians who have left the Muslim countries.) And while speaking of the slaughter in Darfur, he didn't even hint that Egypt and other Arab states have for years been blocking international action to end it. President Obama used the Palestinian apologetic term of `resistance' to discuss Palestinian terrorism, implying a legitimate basis for violence. He also never asked the Arab countries or the PA to put Israel on their maps – something which none of them do.



      "President Obama recently declared that the U.S. won't `dictate' to other countries, yet he strongly dictated to Israel to support the dangerous Arab so-called Peace Initiative and to stop Jewish construction in the territories, thus reinforcing the myth that Palestinian suffering is due to Israel and the settlements. He praised the Arab Peace Initiative, which requires Israel to go back to the indefensible 1967 borders and allow Arab refugees and their millions of descendents to move into Israel. He made no demand to abrogate this refugee issue which, if implemented, would destroy Israel as a Jewish state. Palestinian statehood remains a repeated demand by Obama for Israel to accept even though Hamas controls Gaza. Also, Abbas doesn't fight terrorism in any serious way, which makes it likely that this would become another terrorist state. He also claimed that Israel's creation was rooted in a tragic history of the Jews and the Holocaust. Incorrect - firstly, for Bible-believers, it was G-d who promised this land to the Jews; and the 1917 Balfour Declaration and the 1922 League of Nations mandated the creation of a Jewish State on both sides of the Jordan River – before the Holocaust occurred.



      "Most frighteningly, he said virtually nothing about stopping Iran's rush to develop nuclear weapons, even though he strongly promised this during his election the campaign.



      "President Obama claimed it was illegal for Jews to build homes in Judea and Samaria or East Jerusalem, ignoring the fact that this area was no one's sovereign or legal territory since 1948. Jordan occupied this territory illegally, without UN recognition, from 1948 until 1967 when Israel captured it in a defensive war. In 1967, Israel even offered to return it for peace treaties. The Arab nations, including Jordan, refused.



      "Finally, President Obama ended his talk with quotes from the Holy Koran, and the Holy Bible, but when he quoted the Jewish Talmud, he omitted the term `Holy.' We were perplexed and concerned about that.



      "Taken together, the President's remarks in this speech may well signal the beginning of a renunciation of America's strategic alliance with Israel. It was also a clarion call to all American supporters of Israel, both Christian and Jewish, to make clear to President Obama that strongly supporting the democratic, human-rights loving state of Israel is in America's interest, especially when the truth of the Arab war against Israel in on Israel's side.





      The following is an analysis of President Obama's Cairo speech, with ZOA commentary appended to specific passages from it:



      · "The United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements. This construction violates previous agreements and undermines efforts to achieve peace. It is time for these settlements to stop." [ZOA: What does this mean? How exactly do settlements stop? Is the President saying that Jews have no right to live in these places? The implication that these communities are illegal is wrong. Jordan illegally annexed Judea and Samaria in 1948. When Israel captured it in 1967, it belonged to no sovereign entity. Legally, this is unallocated territory under international law. Practically, it is not the cause of conflict: there were no Jews in these territories between 1948 and 1967, but there was no peace during that period as well. We repudiate the proposition that Jews, because they are Jews, may not move to or live in Judea and Samaria, the religious, historical and political heartland of the Jewish people, as it has been from the Bible to the Jewish nation-state 2000 years ago, to the Balfour Declaration to the League of Nations, which reiterated the fact that this is the Jewish homeland. On what basis is it said that 300,000 Jews cannot live among 2 million Arabs in Judea and Samaria, when 1.2 million Arabs can live among 6 million Jews in Israel proper? Jewish growth in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem has a fundamental legitimacy and poses no obstacle to a true peace if Palestinians are ready for one, so the Obama Administration's insistence on a construction freeze would remain inappropriate even if the prospect of genuine peace negotiations with a truly peaceful Palestinian partner were possible. In any case, no peace can be built on the notion that the biblical, historical and religious heartland of the Jewish people, or any territory for that matter, must be judenrein. Discussing further Israeli territorial and other concessions should be conditional on Mahmoud Abbas' Palestinian Authority arresting terrorists, outlawing terrorist groups, ending the incitement to hatred and murder against Israel in the PA-controlled media, mosques, schools and youth camps and the transforming of Palestinian society into one that opposes terrorism and accepts the legitimacy of Israel's continued existence as a Jewish state.]



      · "…many Israelis recognize the need for a Palestinian state. It is time for us to act on what everyone knows to be true." [ZOA: Apparently, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the coalition government he heads, the majority of the Israeli electorate that voted heavily for right-of-center parties, and the ZOA, among others, are non-persons, because they oppose or are skeptical of the possibility under current conditions of a peaceful Palestinian state. Leading figures, like Middle East historian Bernard Lewis, former CIA Director James Woolsey and former IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Moshe Yaalon all have opposed the creation of a Palestinian state under current conditions. With Hamas controlling Gaza and Fatah running Judea and Samaria, a Palestinian state would become surely another terrorist state in the Middle East. This sort of intellectual absolutism that simply removes from the discussion anyone who does not share President Obama's view bodes ill for new thinking about the region and this conflict.]



      · "America's strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied. Around the world, the Jewish people were persecuted for centuries, and anti-Semitism in Europe culminated in an unprecedented Holocaust. Tomorrow, I will visit Buchenwald, which was part of a network of camps where Jews were enslaved, tortured, shot and gassed to death by the Third Reich. Six million Jews were killed - more than the entire Jewish population of Israel today. Denying that fact is baseless, ignorant, and hateful. Threatening Israel with destruction – or repeating vile stereotypes about Jews – is deeply wrong, and only serves to evoke in the minds of Israelis this most painful of memories while preventing the peace that the people of this region deserve. On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own. For decades, there has been a stalemate: two peoples with legitimate aspirations, each with a painful history that makes compromise elusive. It is easy to point fingers - for Palestinians to point to the displacement brought by Israel's founding, and for Israelis to point to the constant hostility and attacks throughout its history from within its borders as well as beyond": [ZOA: President Obama rightly tells his audience that Holocaust denial and hateful anti-Jewish propaganda are obscene lies, but failed to identify any malefactors – the governments of the PA, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, to name three, that officially promote hatred of Jews in their media, mosques and schools. He strongly implied that there is equivalence between Jewish suffering in the Holocaust and Palestinian suffering in the present day. He then plunges into false equivalence between Jewish and Palestinian suffering, saying that Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. This is simply false. Palestinian have suffered, not in pursuit of a homeland – something they could have had when it was formally proposed internationally by the 1937 Peel Commission, the 1947 UN partition plan and the 2000 Clinton peace parameters. They have suffered because they have unsuccessfully pursued the destruction of the Jewish homeland. As long as the goal of destroying Jewish sovereign independence trumps the goal of creating Palestinian independence, the war will continue. Palestinians were not "displaced by Israel's founding" – a stock propaganda claim of Palestinian apologists; they were displaced by a war which they originated to destroy Israel in embryo. To describe Palestinian violence as "resistance" is again to endorse the false polemical tricks of terrorist sympathizers. President Obama spoke much about legitimate Palestinian aspirations to statehood, but said little about illegitimate Palestinian aspirations, like eliminating Israel or carrying out suicide bombings. He never called upon the Arabs to accept Israel as a Jewish state.]



      · "For centuries, black people in America suffered the lash of the whip as slaves and the humiliation of segregation. But it was not violence that won full and equal rights. It was a peaceful and determined insistence upon the ideals at the center of America's founding. This same story can be told by people from South Africa to South Asia; from Eastern Europe to Indonesia. It's a story with a simple truth: that violence is a dead end. It is a sign of neither courage nor power to shoot rockets at sleeping children, or to blow up old women on a bus. That is not how moral authority is claimed; that is how it is surrendered": [ZOA: Having indulged in false equivalence, President Obama immediately proceeds here to inappropriately insinuate the notion that the Palestinian cause has any relationship or morally congruence to the African-American civil rights struggle in the U.S., or to the anti-apartheid cause in South Africa. Rightly condemning violence and terror does not reduce the indecency of this comparison.]



      · "Israel must also live up to its obligations to ensure that Palestinians can live, and work, and develop their society": [ZOA: Israel has not impeded the development of Palestinian society. To the contrary, under Israel control before Oslo, the Palestinian economic conditions were much higher. The hostilities that have caused such damage to the Palestinian economy were initiated by Palestinians and can only be ended by them. Israel has played no part in the PA corruption and waste that disfigures the Palestinian economy. This is simply an unwarranted swipe at Israel.]



      · "Finally, the Arab States must recognize that the Arab Peace Initiative was an important beginning, but not the end of their responsibilities": [ZOA: To put it mildly, there is legitimate reason to doubt that the 2002 Arab Initiative represents any sort of peace overture. It demands that Israel surrender all territory beyond the pre-1967 armistice lines, which include, not only eastern Jerusalem with the holiest Jewish sites, but also all of Judea and Samaria, including major communities like Ma'ale Adumim, Ariel, Efrat and as well as the strategically vital Jordan Valley and the Golan Heights, as well as religiously holy cities Hebron and Beit El. There are presently almost 600,000 Jews living beyond the 1967 armistice lines. Moreover, the Saudi Initiative insists on the legally-baseless so-called `right of return' in accordance with the non-binding 1948 UN General Assembly Resolution 194, which has no legal weight and was in any case rejected by Arab states at the time. This "return" is to be exercised at Arab discretion, not Israel's, meaning that millions of Arabs would be permitted to move into Israel proper, which would render impossible Israel's continued existence as a Jewish state. The Initiative also rejects any substitute for the `right of return,' asserting ""he rejection of all forms of Palestinian patriation [sic] which conflict with the special circumstances of the Arab host countries," meaning the rejection of proposals for settling the refugees and their millions of descendants in neighboring Arab countries and the granting of citizenship to them. Successive Israeli governments have rejected the `right of return' as unequivocally unacceptable. The Saudi Foreign Minister, Prince Saudi Saud al-Faisal and Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa have ruled out any changes to the Initiative.

      The Arab Initiative also contradicts the written assurance provided in 2004 by President George W. Bush to then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, in which President Bush assured Israel that in any future settlement, Israel should be able to retain major Jewish population centers in Judea and Samaria and that Palestinian refugees would be resettled in Palestinian-controlled territories, not in Israel. This Initiative also makes no demand on Palestinians Arabs and Arabs in general. For example, arrest terrorists, outlaw terrorist groups, end incitement to hatred and murder. It also makes no mention of what is to become of the almost 600, 000 Jews presently living there. In this context, it is deplorable that President Obama did not call for the Arab world to discard the `right of return' in the interests of forging a genuine peace. Also, honesty would require that the President state that the Palestinians turned down President Clinton's 2000 peace plan, with the encouragement of Arab states like Egypt.]



      · "All of us have a responsibility to work for the day when the mothers of Israelis and Palestinians can see their children grow up without fear": [ZOA: It is Israeli mothers, not Palestinian mothers who must fear the blowing up of their children in buses and schools. Israelis do not murder Palestinian children. All danger and bloodshed to which Palestinian children are exposed stems from Palestinian non-acceptance of Israel and the hostilities waged against Israel as a result. This, too, was a form of inappropriate equivalence].



      · "… when Jerusalem is a secure and lasting home for Jews and Christians and Muslims, and a place for all of the children of Abraham to mingle peacefully together as in the story of Isra, when Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (peace be upon them) joined in prayer": [ZOA: It is only under Israeli rule since 1967 that all adherents of all religions represented in Jerusalem been able to worship freely and access their religious sites. Under Jordanian rule (1948-67) Jewish sites were destroyed or vandalized. Every one of the Old City's 58 synagogues was destroyed and the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives desecrated, with tombstones used to pave roads and Jordanian army latrines. The President's hope for a Jerusalem that is open to all three religions is a reality today.]



      · "Hamas must put an end to violence, recognize past agreements, and recognize Israel's right to exist": [ZOA: President Obama is simply repeating the woefully inadequate criteria that has been espoused to admit the genocidal, anti-American Hamas organization into negotiations. He did not, but should have, called for Hamas to abrogate its Charter, which calls for the destruction of Israel (Article 15) and the murder of Jews (Article 7). The idea that the U.S. should deal with Hamas if it meets the three conditions just restated by the President is based on the extraordinarily naïve or malign idea that a bloodthirsty group of terrorists can become responsible and acceptable peace partners provided that they utter the right words on a few occasions when the cameras are rolling. This sort of approach was attempting in the 1990s with Yasser Arafat and Fatah, and failed completely: Arafat did verbally renounce terrorism, accept Israel's right to exist and even signed several agreements to that effect, yet he immediately continued terrorism, repeatedly called for Israel's destruction in Arabic and continued incitement. In the case of Arafat and the PLO, the U.S. demanded that they renounce the PLO Charter which, while calling for terrorism against Israel and Israel's destruction, did not speak of genocide. Why, when the Hamas Charter is even worse, and its record of terror against Israel as least if not more bloodthirsty, is President Obama not demanding that Hamas rescind its Charter? Even if Hamas uttered the few words that we're asking of them, the result would be the same as it was when we dealt with Arafat. Words and signatures mean nothing when they come from murderers. Surely if such people are capable of murdering they are capable of lying. In short, by restating these conditions for Hamas' participation in government and negotiations, the President is really asking Hamas to lie to us so we can give them recognition and financial aid. At the very minimum, the Obama Administration should be insisting on deeds, not merely words – the rescission of the Hamas Charter; the dismantling of its terror squads and bomb-making factories; the complete overhaul of its education system and media broadcasting to remove all incitement to hatred and murder against Jews, Judaism and Israel; and strict adherence to such changes for at least one year before granting it any form of recognition. The current, wrong-headed and dangerous policy to engage Hamas if it meets these three elastic conditions could remove all incentive to Palestinian terror groups committed to Israel's destruction to moderate or give up terror, since they can simply wait out international pressure and wait for the U.S. to fold.]



      · "…nearly seven million American Muslims in our country today": [ZOA: This figure is a three-fold plus exaggeration of the actual number of American Muslims. Inflated figures like these are usually cited only by Islamist organizations like the Council on American Islamic relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Society of North America (ISNA). The 2007 Pew Research Center study estimates a U.S. Muslim population of 0.6 percent, resulting in a figure of approximately 1.8 million American Muslims, while a 2008 American Religious Identification Survey, puts the figure even lower, at 1, 349,000.]



      · "Although I believe that the Iraqi people are ultimately better off without the tyranny of Saddam Hussein, I also believe that events in Iraq have reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible": [ZOA: Until now, President Obama has opposed the war in Iraq. Now he admits in passing that "the Iraqi people are ultimately better off without the tyranny of Saddam Hussein," yet he never thanked President Bush for bringing this about. Had President Bush followed President Obama's advice, Iraqis would still be under the heel of Saddam Hussein].



      · "I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world; one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect; and one based upon the truth that America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles - principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings": [ZOA: The President did not address the wide array of values that the West and Muslim worlds do not necessarily share in common – freedom of religion, equality before the law, democratic and civil society largely do not exist in the Muslim world. Jews may not enter Saudi Arabia, Christians may not hold religious services or openly pray as Christians, on Saudi soil and even Shia Islam worship is prohibited in the country. Shia mosques can be found in Washington, but not in Riyadh; Sunni mosques can be found in Tel Aviv, but not in Teheran. Jews may not live in Jordan, Christians are assaulted, harassed and dramatically declining in number in Palestinian-controlled areas, etc. – the list of inequalities unacceptable in the West is long. The Pope, Benedict XVI, recently expressed deep concern and regret that the majority of Christians have left the Middle East because of persecution. Instead of acknowledging this, President Obama indulged in false equivalence by suggesting that the failure to fully realize women's rights was somehow a problem of similar dimensions in the West].



      · "The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of co-existence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars. More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations": [ZOA: This is historically inaccurate. Co-operation and conflict have occurred, but colonialism has had little impact on the Middle East. Saudi Arabia was never part of any non-Muslim or even Muslim empire. Prior to World War One, most Arabs lived under the Ottoman Empire, a Muslim empire. Arab nation states arose only because Western powers dismembered the Ottoman Empire. The Cold War led America and its allies to often coddle dictatorial Arab regimes, rather than treated as proxies.]



      · "Given our interdependence, any world order that elevates one nation or group of people over another will inevitably fail … In Ankara, I made clear that America is not – and never will be – at war with Islam. We will, however, relentlessly confront violent extremists who pose a grave threat to our security … We would gladly bring every single one of our troops home if we could be confident that there were not violent extremists in Afghanistan and Pakistan determined to kill as many Americans as they possibly can … none of us should tolerate these extremists…": [ZOA: With words like these, President Obama refused to acknowledge that the "extremists" who threaten us are Muslims acting in the name of Islam. In short, he refused to name the enemy he concedes we are fighting.]



      · "And when innocents in Bosnia and Darfur are slaughtered, that is a stain on our collective conscience": [ZOA: President Obama did not once challenge the Arab states, or his host, Egypt, to cease stymieing, as they have done for years, American efforts to achieve U.N. action over the ongoing slaughter in Darfur.]



      · "I am aware that some question or justify the events of 9/11. But let us be clear: al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day": [ZOA: We find the President's words stunning: he mentioned that the truth of America being attacked by Islamist terrorists on 9/11 has been questioned and that justifications have been offered for the attack, but did not bother to refute the pernicious idea that this attack can be justified. Here was an opportunity to rebut the (usually anti-Semitic) conspiracy theories and polemics that predominate in the Arab world and the President shied away from calling these lies by their name.]



      · "Their [terrorists'] actions are irreconcilable with the rights of human beings, the progress of nations, and with Islam. The Holy Koran teaches that whoever kills an innocent, it is as if he has killed all mankind; and whoever saves a person, it is as if he has saved all mankind": [ZOA: Quite apart from the fact that this epigram stems from the Babylonian Talmud (Mishna Sanhedrin 4:5) and was adopted by Islam, Islamic hadith and other authoritative sources of Islamic jurisprudence explicitly mandate warfare against non-believers who repel Muslim conquest or who refuse to accept the Muslim sovereignty, under which they become second-class, unequal subjects. The line quoted by President Obama does not override the doctrine of jihad or the discriminatory practices of sharia, like the jizya, the poll tax imposed on non-Muslims because they are not Muslim. Above all, there is the 9th century hadith by Al-Bukhari that states, "The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews." This is incidentally quoted in the Hamas Charter, which President Obama did not denounce nor demand its abrogation by Hamas.]



      · "The Holy Koran tells us, `O mankind! We have created you male and a female; and we have made you into nations and tribes so that you may know one another.' The Talmud tells us: `The whole of the Torah is for the purpose of promoting peace.' The Holy Bible tells us, `Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God': [ZOA: We are puzzled by President Obama's reference to the Holy Quran and Holy Bible, but the absence of that term from the one distinctively Jewish document he cited, the Talmud.]



      · "The first nation to recognize my country was Morocco. In signing the Treaty of Tripoli in 1796, our second President John Adams wrote, "The United States has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion or tranquility of Muslims": [ZOA: Incorrect. On November 16, 1776, Dutch forces on the Caribbean island of St. Eustatius returned the salute of the American brig-of-war Andrew Doria, thereby making the Netherlands the first country to officially salute the flag of the newly-independent United States. Also, the exchange of Dutch and American ambassadors in 1782 beats by one year the 1783 Moroccan-American Treaty of Friendship. The Treaty of Tripoli, which President Obama cited, one of the Barbary Treaties, came only 13 years later.]



      · "Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance. We see it in the history of Andalusia and Cordoba during the Inquisition": [ZOA: This is simply myth. Historical scholarship shows that Jews and Christians in Andalusia and Cordoba, while permitted to remain Jews and Christians, could not build or repair synagogues and churches, were required to pay the jizya tax because they were not Muslims, and so on. To have these cases offered as examples of Muslim tolerance displays bad faith or lack of knowledge.]



      · President Obama's Cairo speech is also significant for what it did not contain – any serious discussion of the looming threat posed, not only to Israel but, by the President's own prior admission, to the region, the United States and other democracies by Iran's drive to obtain nuclear weapons. Extraordinarily, President Obama had an opportunity to reassure not only Israel, but the whole Sunni Islamic world, that he takes this threat deadly seriously and would do anything to stop it eventuating and thus, among other things, triggering nuclear proliferation across the Middle East. In this context, disturbingly, President Obama did not even mention the possibility of further sanctions against Iran.



      · There is also the matter of one of the hosts of President Obama's speech, the Al-Azhar University. Al-Azhar University, the seat of Sunni Islamic learning, is presided over by Grand Sheikh Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, who in 2003 stated regarding the Palestinians that suicide bombing is not contrary to Islamic law if performed in defense of a homeland. He has also made anti-Semitic statements about the evil and degenerate nature of Jews, making exceptions only for those Jews who convert to Islam. Quite simply, Al-Azhar was a completely inappropriate host for President Obama's speech. The choice to deliver his address there was a woefully misjudged one.

      ISRAEL LIVES June 4, 2009 12th of Sivan 5769 Obama's Muslim 'advantage', palestine's purpose is the destruction of Israel

      All Israel Lives readers, treat yourself. You must see Irena's Vow at the Martin Beck theater on W 48th. Take a hankerchief, take two. This Holocaust drama should be mandated to tour college campuses forever. The 90 minute vehicle should be filmed. It can not be allowed to expire when it's Broadway tour ends. Starring Tova Felshuh would be enough to recommend it, she performs magnificently, but Irena's Vow is an extraordinary, perils-of-Pauline, non-fiction Holocaust account, that would be totally engrossing if only presented on the written page. In the end we come to know that there are truly good people, G-dly people, as there are purely evil people.



      NEWS

      MR. OBAMA NOTED THAT THE UNITED STATES ALSO COULD BE CONSIDERED AS "ONE OF THE LARGEST MUSLIM COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD" HAHN, Germany June 2, 2009, 7:39 pm - As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.

      In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world." He sought to downplay the expectations of the speech, but he said he hoped the address would raise awareness about Muslims. "Now, I think it's very important to understand that one speech is not going to solve all the problems in the Middle East," Mr. Obama said. "And so I think expectations should be somewhat modest." He previewed several themes and objectives for the speech, which aides said the president intended to tinker with - and rewrite - aboard Air Force One during his 12-hour flight to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. "What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States, but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's! happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians," Mr. Obama said. The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world "have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam." "And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world," Mr. Obama said. "And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."

      The speech on Thursday has many intended audiences, but among them are the young people in Cairo and beyond. "I think the most important thing I want to tell young people is that, regardless of your faith, those who build as opposed to those who destroy I think leave a lasting legacy, not only for themselves but also for their nations," Mr. Obama said. "And the impulse towards destruction as opposed to how can we study science and mathematics and restore the incredible scientific and knowledge - the output that came about during centuries of Islamic culture." The president is flying Air Force One directly from Washington to Riyadh. The White House press corps - traveling on a chartered United 767 - is refueling in Hahn, Germany.

      Are we to ultimately believe that our President Obama who so identifies with Muslims is a Christian? On July 27th 2004 he said:

      "If there's an Arab American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney or due process, that threatens my civil liberties. It's that fundamental belief - I am my brother's keeper, I am my sister's keeper - that makes this country work. It's what allows us to pursue our individual dreams, yet still come together as a single American family. 'E pluribus unum.' Out of many, one."

      Barack Obama's Keynote Address at Democratic Convention

      Listening to that speech three thoughts tumbled over one another: the speaker could deliver a rousing speech; odd reference to the Arab American family; and third - danger. I had heard a demagogue speaking a language that was clearly unAmerican. - I'd been writing Israel Lives for two years and my fear antennae twanged. I saved a copy of that fateful speech way back in 2004.

      Are we to ultimately believe that our President Obama who so identifies with Muslims is a Christian? Publication date October 17, 2006 BARACK OBAMA from "The Audacity Of Hope" "I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds change in an ugly direction". The book is titled in Indonesia "Jihad: From Jakarta To The Whitehouse"?

      Are we to ultimately believe that our President Obama who so identifies with Muslims is a Christian? On March 6, 2007 http://select.nytimes.com/2007/03/06/opinion/06kristof.html?_r=2&oref=slogin he said:

      Barack Hussein Obama said the Muslim call to prayer is "one of the prettiest sounds on Earth," repeating the thought he had expressed in Dream of My Father.

      In an interview with Nicholas Kristof, published in The New York Times, Obama recited the Muslim call to prayer, the Adhan, "with a first-class [Arabic] accent."

      The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:

      "Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!

      Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!

      I witness that there is no god but Allah

      I witness that there is no god but Allah

      I witness that Muhammad is his prophet. "

      According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim's complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.

      Are we to ultimately believe that our President Obama who so identifies with Muslims is a Christian? May 9, 2008 At a campaign event in Beaverton, OR, Obama claimed to have visited 57 US states during the campaign. The exact quote: "It is wonderful to be back in Oregon. Over the last 15 months we've traveled to every corner of the United States. I've now been in 57 states. I think one left to go." Muslims often refer to Palestine as being the 58th Muslim nation. American school children learn that there are 50 States. Muslim school children learn that there are 57 Muslim countries. For those readers who find this too troubling not to have been fabricated, It checks out.. http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/57states.asp

      So now my friends, the chickens have come home to roost. The big conjecture of the day is: what gifts did our President and the Saudi King exchange? One acerbic reader suggested that Obama gifted the Saudi King a map of Israel.

      CONCLUSION: the United States also could be considered as "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world." By what metric could The United State of America be considered one of the largest Muslim countries in the world? Is it perhaps that nations are deemed Muslim when their leader is Muslim? If that were the decisive point, the USA is indeed one of the largest Muslim nation by acreage. Another answer might be, that in whatever nation Muslims reside, Muslims deem that nation to be Muslim and the USA is one of the largest nations on earth. Regardless of which option you chose, Obama has put the USA one very large step closer to subjugation under Shaaria Law. Are you antennae twitching, mine are.



      OVER 150 PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY JOINED THE WOMEN IN GREEN "TOURING AND PLANTING IN THE OUTPOSTS" EVENT YESTERDAY. We started our trip by visiting the community of Avigail, in the southern Hebron Hills, where we met the tens of families living there. We planted trees and toured the place which has beautiful homes, a synagogue, a playground and other attributes of a real community, once again destroying the image the media tries to portray of the outposts as if they are hills populated by one goat and two youths living in a shack.



      Afterwards we went to the Chazon David outpost in Kiryat Arba, to the Federman farm and then to the community (outpost) of Maaleh Rehavam in Eastern Gush Etzion, next to El David Nokdim and Kfar Eldad. In Maaleh Rehavam we heard the powerful speeches by Member of Knesset Michael Ben Ari, Rabbi Shimon Golan of Efrat, Rabbi Uziya Sharbaf of Hevron, attorney Elyakim Haetzni and Danny Halamish, resident of Maaleh Rehavam.



      We came to strengthen but we are the ones who were strengthened. We were strengthened by the strength and faith and Zionist pioneering spirit of our brothers living in those hills. Our internal and external enemies who call for the destruction of the outpost do so to try and crush exactly that spirit. They will not succeed! Many other outposts called us and asked we visit them, too. We promised that this tour will, please G-d, be the first of many.

      The last decade has seen tremendous growth in the number of Jews identifying with Republican ideas and the GOP. The Republican Jewish Coalition, founded in 1985, is the sole voice of Jewish Republicans to Republican decision makers and the Jewish community, expressing our viewpoint on a wide variety of issues.

      The Republican Jewish Coalition is the well-respected representative of the Jewish community to Republican elected officials and party leaders and is the pre-eminent Republican organization in the Jewish community.

      With a strong presence in Washington, D.C. and chapters around the country, the RJC is making a difference for the growing Jewish Republican movement in America.

      IS PRESIDENT OBAMA BRINGING A CURSE ONTO AMERICA? by Emanuel A. Winston, Middle East Analyst & Commentator



      President Barack Obama, a Chicago political Christian, now gives a TV interview June 2nd, stating that He (i.e. America) will never go to war against Islam. Obama, having gone back to his Islamic Muslim roots, proclaims forthrightly that Islamic "Jihadist" (warriors for Islam) nations like Iran and Syria among the 57 Islamic nations, can feel absolutely safe should they continue their growing attacks against the Judeo-Christian nation of America. The "Jihadists" claim it is "War against the Crusaders". Lots of code-words of history behind that phrase.



      Obama is now in Egypt, [more on Cairo speech later] continuing his mission of apologies in the name of America for what he says America has done to Islam. (He never specifies what America has to apologize for.)



      Obama has verbally attacked Israel with a vengeance that only radical Muslims can approve of. Most Americans see Islam as a dangerous, cruel religion that follows the path of Adolph Hitler and his goals.



      Like Hitler planned for conquering the world in order to have the Nazis rule over a 1000 Year Reich...the Muslim "Jihadists" also state plainly that Islam's goal is to conquer the world and rule by means of a governing Global Caliphate under the strict Shari'a laws of Islam. Women must be totally covered or be beaten on the street. Head and hand chopping off is an accepted custom in Islam for civil crimes. Conversion by the sword of the "Infidel" (non-believer in Islam) is the way of the Koran and Mohammed's ritual practices against all "Infidels".



      Obama, in his speech to the Muslim world in Cairo, Egypt is to speak about his early life as a Muslim under the guidance of his Muslim father. It no longer matters that he proclaims he is a Chicago political Christian or that he is not a Muslim in Mufti (disguise) because his actions and the words of his speeches speak otherwise.



      Obama is clearly destroying the vitality of America from within. He's taking Trillions of American tax-payers dollars to "bail-out" the financial stability of every American who ever worked and saved money. His financial actions may make the financially stable bankrupt. He aims to "spread the wealth around. That sounds like Socialism to me.



      Now he's taken over the auto industry, driving the big three American auto companies into bankruptcy. He's arranged for the U.S. government to run the companies with another Trillion plus of American tax-payers' dollars. That sounds a lot like Communism to me.



      But, then I wouldn't want to call anyone names. Obama is seeing to that McCarthyite-type behavior.



      Note that he says in interviews at the White House before he left for Cairo that America is "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world". (See statistics of numbers and percentages of Muslims in various countries at end and also an article of June 2nd by Jeff Zeleny for the New York Times Caucus Blog wherein he speaks of Obama's thoughts in what should be considered a biased speech for Islam.)



      Is Obama something of an alien, both in the sense of being born in a foreign country and having crossed the border into America he then claims American citizenship - or is he an "alien" put in his place of power to weaken America for others to rule over?



      Is Obama the evil being anticipated in the Hebrew Tanach (Bible) called "Gog" or in Christian lore called "the anti-Christ"?



      Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, President of Iran, has likened the President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama to the coming of the "Mahdi" (the Muslim Messiah) who the Koran says will only come when there will be the war between "Gog" and "Magog" called Armageddon.



      That sounds about right as Obama encourages Iran with sufficient time to complete making their Nuclear Bomb of Armageddon. Obama is clearly bringing a curse down upon America and all of her historic, loyal Allies - as his Muslim allies will bring some Nuclear surprises to American cities - or southern Europe or Israel or American bases in the Middle East where 200,000 - 250,000 American soldiers at risk in harm's way.

      A statement -- or an aspiration?









      Having previously declared that America is 'no longer a Christian nation' - to be precise:



      ... At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers...

      Obama has now announced, on the eve of his pilgrimage to make obeisance [see picture of Obama bowing to Saudi King] to the entire Islamic world, that the US can be seen as a Muslim country:



      'And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,' Mr. Obama said.

      Uh? Here are some statistics of the number and percentage of Muslims in various countries:



      Indonesia: 207,105,000 (88.2%);

      Pakistan: 167,430,801 (95%);

      India: 156,254,615 (13.4%);

      Turkey: 70,800,000 (99%);

      Egypt: 70,530,237 (90%);

      Nigeria: 64,385,994 (45%);

      Iran: 64,089,571 (98%);

      Algeria: 32,999,883 (99%);

      Morocco: 32,300,410 (99%);

      Afghanistan: 31,571,023 (99%)

      Saudi Arabia: 26,417,599 (100%)

      USA: 4,558,068 (1.5%) ****

      Just what planet is this US President on? Or is this not a statement but an aspiration?

      OBAMA: THE UNITED STATES IS "ONE OF THE LARGEST MUSLIM COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD"



      http://www.jihadwatch.org/archives/026400.php



      What planet is he on?



      "Obama Says U.S. Could Be Seen as a Muslim Country, Too," by Jeff Zeleny for the New York Times Caucus Blog, June 2 (thanks to Randall):



      HAHN, Germany - As President Obama prepared to leave Washington to fly to the Middle East, he conducted several television and radio interviews at the White House to frame the goals for a five-day trip, including the highly-anticipated speech Thursday at Cairo University in Egypt.

      In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."...

      Was that an observation or a wish?



      "What I want to do is to create a better dialogue so that the Muslim world understands more effectively how the United States, but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians," Mr. Obama said.

      The president said the United States and other parts of the Western world "have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam."

      I'm all for that. And I hereby offer my services to assist in this great effort.



      "And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world," Mr. Obama said. "And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."...

      Here is a What-Is-Obama-Smoking? Alert: Indonesia: 200 million Muslims. India: 156 million Muslims. Pakistan: 150 million Muslims. United States: 2.3 million Muslims (according to the Pew Research Center). ****



      "I think the most important thing I want to tell young people is that, regardless of your faith, those who build as opposed to those who destroy I think leave a lasting legacy, not only for themselves but also for their nations," Mr. Obama said. "And the impulse towards destruction as opposed to how can we study science and mathematics and restore the incredible scientific and knowledge - the output that came about during centuries of Islamic culture."...

      ISRAEL LIVES June 6, 2009 14th of Sivan 5769 OBAMA'S STRATEGY WILL BREED INCREASED JIHAD AND ISLAMAPHOBIA

      Obama flubbed the desired homer, the ball dribbled off his bat. Obama's speech approached but didn't touch the bases. If Obama wanted to speak meaningfully, in a speech which clearly intended global ramifications, he neededly to say, openly to the world, 'no nation has the right to discriminate based on race, creed, sex, color or national origin'. He would have held up a minimum standard of human rights to the Islamic world that it is incumbent on them to meet. He would have affirmed President Roosevelt's human rights breakthrough which lead to Fair Employment Practice Commission (FEPC) laws in the1940's, and eventually lead to human rights protections that the free world accepts today as normal. Pointing out headscarf discrimination to Muslim women by the West, and nothing in Islam's structure beyond a vague mention of 'improving women's rights in Muslim countries' reduced an hour's words to mere chatter. Finally, he would have established the imperative that a! ll nations admit all peoples as citizens into their midst; that Jews, Christians, Hindus and agnostics can live in all Islamic countries. Obama in Cairo struck out, he never got to first base.

      I am certain that a much warranted 'Islamaphobia', in the face of continued Jihad attacks throughout the world, will be condemned in Obama's next intercontinental address.

      NEWS Please note that when I know a Knesset members professional credentials, I use them. Israeli politicians are part of the scientific and business community, they are not public leeches feasting exclusively from the public trough.

      "WE MUST STRENGTHEN THE JEWISH COMMUNITIES OF JUDEA AND SAMARIA EVEN BEYOND THEIR NATURAL GROWTH RATES." Ex-Defense and Foreign Minister Professor Moshe Arens says, The soft-spoken former Technion professor of aeronautical engineering is not happy with U.S. President Barack Obama's new aggressive approach to Israel. "We're not used to receiving orders from others," he told Arutz-7's Hebrew newsmagazine on Thursday. "We are an independent country. We hear what the president says, but we are not at Mt. Sinai [with Moses] where we respond, 'We will do whatever you say.'" "Our settlement in the Land of Israel is the basic right of the Jewish Nation", Arens said, "based not only on the Bible and Jewish history, but on international recognition during the times of the League of Nations and the British Mandate." "We cannot be like our former prime minister, Ehud Olmert, and like Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni, who deny our natural rights, a basis of Zionism, to live in J! udea and Samaria." "It is incumbent upon us to strengthen the existing communities," Arens said.

      Arens served for six terms as a Knesset Member, was Minister of Defense in four different governments, and was Minister of Foreign Affairs in one. He immigrated to Israel in 1948 from the United States. [Editor's note: Judea and Samaria must never be Judenrein.]

      REMIND THESE REPRESENTATIVES, AS WELL AS ALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES AND PRESIDENT OBAMA, OF THESE FACTS WRITTEN BY ELI HERTZ

      On June 4, 2009 in a Keynote Address to the Muslim world delivered from Cairo President Obama asserted that it is "undeniable that the Palestinian people - Muslims and Christians - have suffered in pursuit of a homeland." and continued and claimed that "for more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation" and "daily humiliations - large and small - that come with occupation." He concluded by stating "let there be no doubt: The situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own."

      Remember Mr Representative and President Obama, 61 years ago the Arabs in Palestine were neither hapless targets nor innocent bystanders. The human tragedy of being uprooted notwithstanding, the first stage of Israel's war of independence in 1948, was a fierce interethnic and anti-Zionist civil war in which the Arabs in Palestine were the aggressors and the initiators. Then came the all-out war and invasion of seven regular Arab armies whose participation the Arabs in Palestine engineered. There were 6,000 Israelis dead as a result of that 1948 war, in a total population of 600,000. One percent of the Jewish population was gone. In American terms, the equivalent is 3.0 million American civilians and soldiers killed over an 18-month period.

      When you speak about daily 'humiliation' of the Palestinian Arabs but ignore the real victims of Arab terrorism. In Israel, every Israeli is searched numerous times during the course of a day. Israelis are asked to open their bags and purses for inspection and in most cases are subjected to body searches with a metal detector every time they enter a bank or post office, pick up a bottle of milk at the supermarket, enter a mall or train station, or visit a hospital or medical clinic. Young Israeli men and women are physically frisked in search of suicide belts before they enter crowded nightclubs.

      These ordinary daily humiliations extend to similar searches when Israelis go to weddings or bar mitzvahs. No one in the western world speaks of the humiliation that Jews in Israel are subjected to, having to write at the bottom of wedding invitations and other life cycle events, "The site will be secured [by armed guards]" - to ensure that relatives and friends will attend and share in their joyous occasion.

      To date, no one protests the fact that, since the 1970s, Jewish schoolchildren in Israel are surrounded by perimeter fences, with armed guards at the schoolyard gates. Not one Arab village in Israel or the Territories has a perimeter fence around it. Guards are not required at Arab shops, cafes, restaurants, movie theaters, wedding halls or schools - either in Israel or in the Territories. Palestinian Arabs also do not need armed guards to accompany every school trip, youth movement hike or campout, as they are not targets of terrorism.

      Israelis are told to disguise themselves when traveling abroad - not to speak Hebrew in public and not to wear garments that reveal their Jewish/Israeli origins. On the other hand, Arabs who frequent Jewish cities and towns in Israel wear their traditional Arab headgear without fear of being attacked or harassed.

      In fact, Mr. Representative and President Obama, the average Israeli is "humiliated and harassed" far more times a day than the average Palestinian Arab.

      And most importantly, to the claim of occupation - the former president of the International Court of Justice, Professor, Judge Stephen M. Schwebel makes it clear:

      "As between Israel, acting defensively in 1948 and 1967, on the one hand, and her Arab neighbors, acting aggressively, in 1948 and 1967, on the other, Israel has the better title in the territory of what was Palestine, including the whole of Jerusalem."

        Lyme Disease On The Rise – Se-ual Transmission?
        When the CDC reports that Lyme is on the rise, assuming they had accurate
        statistics which is debatable, it is time to speak out.
        I live in Maine, so this PBS program is extremely alarming. Read and/or listen
        here. (Reported by Tom Porter)
        Maine has a strong deer-hunting community which is carefully managed and far
        less of a concern than other states where deer populations are out of control.
        Even in Maine there is a deer population problem in urban areas where hunting is
        prohibited. So imagine the states across the country where urban restrictions
        allow deer to thrive…and of course deer ticks are not the only way to contract
        Lyme disease.
        Se-ual transmission of Lyme disease is hotly debated, however, Syphilis, the
        cousin of Lyme, is contracted primarily through se-ual contact.
        The Canadian Lyme Disease Foundation has published the following abstract by Dr.
        Gregory Bach, Do.O.P.C. from Pennsylvania back in 2001. It begs the question of
        why more studies like this have been withheld from the public:
        RECOVERY OF LYME SPIROCHETES BY PCR IN SEMEN SAMPLES OF PREVIOUSLY DIAGNOSED
        LYME DISEASE PATIENTS
        Lyme disease, being a spirochete with pathology similar to syphilis, is often
        found difficult to treat due to the spirochete invading sanctuary sites and
        displaying pleo-morphic characteristics such as a cyst (L-form). Because a
        significant portion of se-ually active couples present to my office with Lyme
        disease, with only one partner having a history of tick exposure, the question
        of possible secondary (se-ual)vector of transmission for the spirochete warrants
        inquiry.
        Additionally, se-ually active couples seem to have a marked propensity for
        antibiotic failure raising the question of se-ually active couples re-infecting
        themselves through intimate contact.
        METHODS:
        Lyme spirochetes/DNA have been recovered from stored animal semen. Recovery of
        spirochete DNA from nursing mother's breast milk and umbilical cord blood by PCR
        (confirmed by culture/microscopy), have been found in samples provided to my
        office.
        RESULTS:
        Surprisingly, initial laboratory testing of semen samples provided by male Lyme
        patients (positive by western blot/PCR in blood) and the male se-ual partner of
        a Lyme infected female patient were positive approximately 40% of the time.
        PCR recovery of Lyme DNA nucleotide sequences with microscopic confirmation of
        semen samples yielded positive results in 14/32 Lyme patients (13 male semen
        samples and 1 vaginal pap).
        ALL positive semen/vaginal samples in patients with known se-ual partners
        resulted in positive Lyme titers/PCR in their se-ual partners. 3/4 positive
        semen patients had no or unknown se-ual partners to be tested. These preliminary
        findings warrant further study. Current a statistical design study to evaluate
        the possibility of se-ual transition of the spirochete is being undertaken.
        Our laboratory studies confirm the existence of Lyme spirochetes in
        semen/vaginal secretions. Whether or not further clinical studies with a larger
        statistical group will support the hypothesis of se-ual transmission remains to
        be seen. A retrospective clinical study is also underway.
        We are reviewing the medical records, collecting semen samples of patients who
        were previously diagnosed with current and previously treated Lyme disease are
        being asked to provide semen,pap and blood samples for extensive laboratory
        testing.
        CONCLUSION:
        With the initially impressive data, we feel the subsequent statistical sudy on
        the se-ual transmission of the Lyme spirochete will illuminate a much broader
        spectrum of public health concerns associated with the disease than the
        originally accepted tick borne vector."
        ******
        Also, according to the Serano Group (www.serranogroup.org), as far back as 1986
        the National Institute of Health (NIH), working with other researchers, put
        uninfected mice in a cage with Bb infected mice. All of the uninfected mice had
        evidence of Bb infection 42 days later.
        And it is well established that Bb is found in urine. Willy Burgdorfer, the
        discoverer of Borrelia burgdorferi, unfortunately got Lyme borreliosis when
        urine from an infected rabbit splashed into his eye. As with blood
        transfusions, not enough research has been done on transmission by other body
        fluids.
        The Serano Group also reports that in April, 2001, Dr. Gregory Bach presented a
        paper at the International Scientific Conference on Lyme Disease showing that in
        42 tested Lyme borreliosis patients, 14 had DNA evidence of Bb in semen or
        vaginal fluids.
        It is both shocking and infuriating that this evidence is being covered up.
        In closing, I repeat my prediction that it will be the scientific researchers
        who will break the stranglehold of information regarding the other ways that
        Lyme is transmitted – including the se-ual transmission – and hopefully better
        precautions can be made to slow the rapid spread of this horrible disease.

        RJC Expresses Concern about Ron Paul Candidacy
        Thursday, May 12, 2011 By: RJC Press Office
        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
        Washington, D.C. (May 12, 2011) -- With press reports indicating that
        Congressman Ron Paul (TX) will announce his bid for the 2012 GOP presidential
        nomination tomorrow, the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) releases the
        following statement expressing deep concern about his candidacy.
        RJC Executive Director Matthew Brooks stated:
        "As Americans who are committed to a strong and vigorous foreign policy, we are
        deeply concerned about the prospective presidential campaign of Congressman Ron
        Paul. While Rep. Paul plans to run as a Republican, his views and past record
        place him far outside of the Republican mainstream. His candidacy, as we've seen
        in his past presidential campaigns, will appeal to a very narrow constituency in
        the U.S. electorate. Throughout his public service, Paul has espoused a
        dangerous isolationist vision for the U.S. and our role in the world. He has
        been a virulent and harsh critic of Israel during his tenure in Congress*. Most
        recently Paul gave an interview in which he voiced his objection to the recent
        killing of Osama Bin Laden.
        Brooks added, "We certainly respect Congressman Paul's right to run, but we
        strongly reject his misguided and extreme views, which are not representative of
        the Republican Party."
        * Notes:
        Paul likened Israel's defensive blockade of Hamas-ruled Gaza to "a concentration
        camp"
        Ron Paul: U.S. Shouldn't Support Israel's Gaza Blockade
        In February, Paul proposed an amendment to unilaterally cancel U.S. assistance
        to Israel
        Politico, "Huddle, 2/16/11"
        http://www.politico.com/huddle/0211/huddle724.html
        Ron Paul was one of just 8 House members to vote against sanctions on Iran
        http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=h2010-394
        During the interval between his stints in Congress, Ron Paul published
        newsletters that included "rants against the Israeli lobby"
        CNN, "Ron Paul '90s newsletters rant against blacks, gays", 1/1/08

        We seek to foster and enhance ties between the American Jewish community and
        Republican decision makers. We work to sensitize Republican leadership in
        government and the party to the concerns and issues of the Jewish community,
        while articulating and advocating Republican ideas and policies within the
        Jewish community. We are committed to building a strong, effective and respected
        Jewish Republican voice in Washington and across the country.
        http://www.rjchq.org/About/missionstatement.aspx
        For 25 years, the Republican Jewish Coalition (formerly the National Jewish
        Coalition) has been the voice for Jewish Republicans. The RJC was founded in
        1985 to be a permanent Jewish presence in the Republican community and a
        credible Republican presence in the Jewish community.
        As the unique bridge between the Jewish community and Republican leaders, the
        RJC earned the trust of the Reagan and Bush administration officials, national
        and state legislators, and party leaders.
        The RJC works to sensitize Republican decision makers in government and the
        party to the concerns of the Jewish community, while at the same time
        articulating Republican ideas and policies in the Jewish community.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition is the most important voice on Republican issues
        in the Jewish community and the most trusted and sought-out Jewish advisor to
        Republican leaders.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition has a tradition of leadership and activism,
        hosting events and activities such as the Presidential Candidates Forum,
        leadership trips to Israel for Members of Congress, governors and other leaders,
        and creating a high-level and high-profile Jewish presence at the Republican
        National Convention.
        No less importantly, the Republican Jewish Coalition has a growing grassroots
        outreach to Jewish Republicans, which has been very successful in the last few
        years. Using a variety of media, including an award-winning website, the RJC is
        attracting new members, adding to our current 40 chapters and building on the
        network of Jewish Republican activists already in place in key states around the
        country.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition has a highly successful Legislative Affairs
        Department, ensuring that our issues are heard on Capitol Hill. We lobby and
        advise leaders from state capitals to the U.S. Capitol and from the local party
        offices to the Republican National Committee. Through the ongoing work of our
        Communications Department, we make our case in the mainstream national media and
        the local Jewish papers.
        In addition, we have established the Republican Jewish Coalition Political
        Action Committee to expand our capabilities. This allows us to aggressively
        engage in political activities across the country and gives us the ability to
        strongly support, both politically and financially, the incumbents and
        challengers who reflect our priorities and principles.
        On every level, the Republican Jewish Coalition is committed to building a
        strong, effective, and respected Jewish Republican voice in Washington and
        across the country.

        Is Raw Cacao a Superfood or Harmful Stimulant
        By Diana Stoevelaar of www.AwesomeRawsome.com
        Is raw cacao a superfood or harmful stimulant? Although some raw food leaders
        highly promote cacao as something that should be revered as a food of the Gods,
        others have spoken out against raw cacao and raw chocolate. Who should you
        believe? Don't be fooled by all the hype!
        "Many people are being mislead to believe cacao and other foods are healthy.
        Many of the people who promote it, have a good heart and really feel it is a
        good food, but I know there are many who sell this product knowing it is toxic
        and addictive, just to make money."
        Many raw food leaders including Victoria Boutenko, Dr. Doug Graham, Frederic
        Patenaude, Paul Nissan, Jeremy Safron, Dr. Fred Bisci, and Dr. Brian Clement,
        have already come to the conclusion that raw cacao is not a superfood but an
        addictive stimulant. What do they know that you perhaps don't yet know?
        They probably have discovered what Dr. Neal Barnard says in his lecture,
        Breaking the Food Seduction, namely that, "Chocolate, just like sugar, elicits
        an opiate reaction within the brain that trips the dopamine receptors and gives
        us a pleasure response…I don't mean to say that chocolate is a drug. What I mean
        to say is that chocolate is the whole darn drugstore!"
        When Narcan or Noloxone, the drugs used to block opiate receptors for those
        suffering a heroine overdose are used in research studies for those with a
        chocolate addiction, test subjects lose their desire for chocolate.
        Jeremy Safron's findings were as follows:
        Cacao is one of the most addictive substances known.
        In some cases of long term use there are also psychological effects that range
        from addictive tendencies, sexual dysfunction, violent outbursts, lack of
        reasoning, and decreased will.
        At mega does of 40 plus beans it acts as a hallucinogen and can cause many
        effects attributed to LSD or Hashish.
        Cacao is super toxic to the liver.
        The result of long term use is a high level of liver and blood toxicity which
        can cause extreme: mood swings, angry outbursts, violence, depression, paranoia,
        and dizziness.
        It is extremely clogging due to the toxins carried in the oils contained within.
        Plus the fat chains are highly complex and require tons of work to break down.
        It acts as a stimulant and agitates the kidneys and adrenal glands this can
        cause: insomnia, nightmares, waking up in the middle of the night, shakes, and
        extreme energy shifts.
        No animal in nature will eat it unless tricked into it with milk or sugar.
        If you can convince an animal to eat it then it greatly shortens their life span
        if it doesn't kill them immediately. (as with dogs)
        The native people who ate it only ate the fruit of the theobroma (which contains
        all the benefits and none of the detriments) and only used the cacao seed as an
        addition to their psychedelic brew ahyuwascaand as a medicine in emergences.
        Native people did not eat it as a food nor as a supplement
        , but only for sacred use.
        When Native people did eat it, they only ate the fruit which contained the
        benefits without the detriments.
        Jeremy Safron's final stand on cacao is that it is for medicinal, sacred and for
        entertainment usage only; it is not a health food!
        Paul Nison says, "The processing of cacao beans into powder and chocolate is an
        unsanitary, risky procedure to say the least. To be blunt – chocolate and cacao
        are laced with animal feces and hair, insects, and molds. The carcinogenic mold
        called aflatoxin has been found in large quantities on cacao beans." and
        continues…
        Watch Paul Nison in this very informative 9:33 minute video of with references
        to the scientific research regarding the harmfulness of raw cacao/chocolate:
        Doctor Fred Bisci, a raw foodist for about 40 years also confirmed what Jeremy
        Safron and Paul Nison suspected; cacao is toxic!!!
        You can hear him speak about his findings and personal experience with raw
        chocolate here in this 3 minute clip:
        Listen to Dr. Brian Clement explain in this short clip why he does not recommend
        raw chocolate:
        Cacao is a Dangerous Heart Stimulant
        Just last week I was visiting a health food store to purchase my greens
        (nature's best source of minerals, trace minerals and magnesium) all without
        stimulants, addictive substances and high amounts of saturated fat, when I got
        into a conversation with a very health conscious gentleman who asked me what I
        thought about cacao. I told him that I agreed with Dr. Neil Barnard and others,
        that chocolate is harmful to our health. Chocolate contains caffeine,
        theobromine, as well as phenylethylamine which slows down the breakdown on
        anandamide just as with the use of marijuana. Now you can understand why it's so
        addictive!
        He relayed an interesting story to me that clearly illustrates raw chocolate's
        stimulating effects. He told me how he had recently started adding chocolate to
        his energy sports drink to help his energy and recovery. He rode his bike to the
        Blood Donor Clinic as he does every two months and tried to donate blood.
        Unfortunately he couldn't pass the screening test because his heart rate was too
        high! They asked him to sit for 15 minutes to allow his heart rate to normalize
        but it was still too high. He was shocked since this had never happened to him
        before!
        Adding raw cacao was the only thing he had changed in his diet. Now, you might
        wonder why chocolate would make his heart race? Its due to the caffeine and
        theobromine, a sister molecule to caffeine, the same chemical that kills many
        dogs when they eat chocolate! The adrenal glands rev up metabolism so as to
        quickly eliminate the offensive substance. This is called stimulated energy
        which is always followed by fatigue, and therefore a desire for more of the
        stimulant.
        My Personal Experience with Cacao
        I never bought into the raw cacao craze; I was forewarned by knowledgeable
        people who knew the truth, but when a friend of mine wanted me to import some
        for her a few years ago, I obliged after trying to persuade her not to buy it.
        When it arrived I asked her if I might sample some so I could have a personal
        experience with it. She offered me a few nibs which I popped into my mouth. I
        chewed them a few seconds and felt compelled to spit them out into the kitchen
        sink. They were so bitter I couldn't stand them and I used to be a dark
        chocolate fan! Apparently no animal in nature will eat them either unless you
        fool them into by combining the raw cacao with milk or sugar. So ended my desire
        to ever try it until…
        I had the opportunity to try a raw chocolate dessert (a brownie made with raw
        cacao powder) for the first time at a raw food potluck. After just a few bites I
        felt a strange trembling sensation throughout my entire nervous system and then
        faintness came over me. I became very weak and had to be supported to walk. I
        linked the experience with the raw chocolate and decided not to touch it again
        until…
        I worked for Avena Originals and they begged me to try their chocolate saying it
        was more "pure" than the cacao I had imported from a supplier in California. So
        after much coaxing I agreed to their request – to test their cacao by consuming
        just 2 tablespoons daily in my banana smoothie at lunch instead of the usual
        carob. After adding twice the amount of dates to the smoothie that I usually
        used, it was actually quite delicious.
        The first thing I noticed was that I always wanted more after I had consumed the
        last drop, unlike the satisfied feeling I had with my banana –carob smoothie.
        Secondly, I found it difficult to sleep through the night and suffered from
        insomnia. My gums started bleeding after about a week of consuming cacao daily,
        but the most unbearable side effects I experienced were the excruciatingly
        painful leg cramps in my calves that occurred nightly after about 2 weeks of
        consuming cacao. It was then that I abandoned my experiment and decided that
        cacao was definitely harmful for me. It appears that the cleaner one's body the
        greater the sensitivity, which explains why long term raw foodists tend to
        experience the worst side effects. Fortunately all of these symptoms disappeared
        when I stopped consuming cacao.
        I know you probably don't like to hear that your favourite raw food is not good
        for you. That's why I'll never be as popular as those you try to convince you
        that it's a SUPERFOOD. But then I am only doing my best to educate you; I'm not
        trying to convince you that the chocolate addiction you brought with you from
        the cooked food world is now actually good for you and that you should now
        consume cacao or raw chocolate with reckless abandon because it's a SUPERFOOD!
        No, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night, not due to cacao's stimulating effects
        (I don't eat it!) but because I have a conscience. Please note that I stand
        nothing to gain by telling you not to consume cacao except knowing that I did
        the right think to inform you so hopefully you would not be led astray and lose
        what health you've gained by consuming more raw food. Reserve your money to buy
        real superfoods – leafy greens!
        "Greens are nature's true superfoods."~ Sergei Boutenko
        NOTE BY FREDERIC:
        Some people claim that raw cacao is perfectly healthy because it's a fruit.
        Because I live in Costa Rica half the year, I know what a real cacao fruit is.
        In fact, I often buy it at the supermarket. There's a sweet/acidic pulp
        surrounding the seeds, and the way to eat the fruit is simply suck on the seeds
        like a candy, and then throw away the seeds! Why? They are not edible and taste
        horrible in their completely raw, natural state.
        On the right is a photo of a Bribri native in Costa Rica, eating Cacao fruit.
        What is your experience with raw cacao? What do you think? Let me know with
        your comments below!

        Please join The Jewish Mosaic Outdoor Mountain Club for Wildwood Beach Day and
        the Kite Festival, this Saturday, May 28. We will be going to an indoor pool or
        for those who want, you can go to the lighthouse and gardens instead. There is a
        carpool leaving from Marlton, NJ if anyone is interested. For more information,
        please go to our website, at

        No need to pack the picnic blanket or fire up the grill. We're bringing a
        once-in-a-lifetime opportunity right to your backyard – Brooklyn, NY, that is –
        this Memorial Day Weekend, May 27-29. (http://shabbaton.org)
        The Shabbaton, featuring Rabbi Manis Friedman, is your chance to meet and
        network with other young Jewish professionals and enjoy an inspiring and
        authentic Shabbat experience.
        LOL….FYI….OMG…. Besides the DELICIOUS FOOD and LUXURIOUS ACCOMMODATIONS,
        participants will have the opportunity to take a journey with Rabbi Manis
        Freidman, sought-after lecturer and author, exploring insights and wisdom from
        the Torah on such topics as:
        • Love and relationships ("LOL - Lessons on Love")
        • Techniques in maximizing one's personal growth ("FYI – Find Your
        Inspiration")
        • The deeper meaning behind today's extraordinary world events ("OMG –
        Observe. Meditate. Grow")
        Come see why the New York Times called Rabbi Friedman a "rising superstar".
        Endowed with world-renowned wit and wisdom, Rabbi Friedman has the powerful
        ability to approach every topic with scholarship, originality and soul,
        personalizing what he teaches so he truly makes a lasting impact on people's
        lives.
        February's sold-out Shabbaton brought Jews from all over the tri-state region
        together for a weekend of connecting to each other and their Jewish roots.
        Shabbaton co-organizer and Manhattan-based YJP, Eve Cohn, calls The Shabbaton "a
        great opportunity to form relationships that could be taken in any direction -
        dating, friendship or business. This is your chance for a relaxing and
        inspirational Shabbat with like-minded individuals."
        The Shabbaton caters to everyone regardless of religious affiliation, background
        knowledge or experience.
        The Shabbaton would like to wish mazel tov to Chanan Nocks and Shoshana Etzkin
        on the occasion of their engagement that took place after meeting at our most
        recent Shabbaton in February!
        For more information and to register, please visit our website

        Please join Mosaic for the Wildwood Kite Festival on Saturday, May 28, 2011 at
        9:00 at the George F. Bover Wildwood History Museum, 3907 PA Ave., Wildwood, NJ
        08260, 609-523-0277. Since it is too cold to swim outdoors, we will also be
        going to an indoor pool for part of the day. For more information and to sign
        up, please go to: http://www.meetup.com/www-mosaic-gny-org/events/17173289/. I
        hope to see you all there!

        camping. Singles, couples and families welcome. We also arrange rides
        for those without transportation.

        time boating on the Delaware in years and our first time camping in this
        stunningly beautiful park!

        Rates per person as low as $69 for the Sunday's Boating/BBQ &
        Bonfire, and $99 for the entire 2 day event! Special Child and Family
        rates also available.

        4th Berkshire Weekend!!
        from print to film to fun discussions at house parties and at restaurants
        Let us get together to discuss books that have been turned into movies
        we can read the books first, then see the movies at house parties
        and then discuss both the books and the movies they were turned into
        at those house parties
        I have over 300 videos, mostly VHS and some DVDs in my collection
        I am sure others have good collections too
        The houses I would go to would need to have VCRs and DVD players
        some places sell combination VCRs and DVDs if you do not have one already
        I am allergic to cats so the house parties I would go to would have
        to be at feline free homes, also I do not smoke so the house parties
        I would go to would have to be at smoke free homes
        I am a vegan so I would need to go to house parties that have
        vegan food available
        I would like to suggest a regular weekend lunch or any night dinner and
        discussion event
        we could alternate between house parties and lunch and dinner discussions
        at restaurants
        we could rotate the locations to make them easier to go to depending upon where
        people live and work
        Veggie Heaven is a vegan Chinese restaurant group with several different
        locaions.
        "Full-Service Vegetarian Restaurant
        Offering Healthy Vegetarian Delicacies in Northern NJ for Over 15 Years When you
        have a craving for great vegetarian Asian food, you need to come to Veggie
        Heaven. With convenient locations in Bergen (Teaneck), Essex (Montclair) and
        Morris (Denville) Counties in NJ and now in New City, NY, our vegetarian Asian
        restaurants offer you great service and atmosphere, and even better vegetarian
        dishes for you to choose from. With everything from our signature entrees to
        our delectable desserts, we have something on our menu for everyone.
        Our chefs masterfully combine vegetables with spices and flavorings to bring you
        all of the food dishes that you love. From our calamari to our noodles, we have

        green or jasmine teas, some fresh squeezed organic vegetable juices, or an
        exotic bubble tea (selections vary by location).
        I like the Denville location best, parking is easiest there, but I also go to
        the Upper Montclair location sometimes, and have even gone to the Teaneck
        location, all 3 are close to movies so if there are good films to see we could
        see them before or after eating at a Veggie Heaven

        One of the biggest complaints heard from many
        women who attend some singles events
        is that there are far more women than men
        in attendance.
        One of the biggest complaints heard from
        many men who attend most science fiction
        events is that there are far more men in
        attendance than women.
        Most science fiction fans are male.
        Many science fiction fans in places like
        New Jersey are also Jewish.
        There are science fiction clubs in many
        places. In New Jersey many science fiction
        club attendees are single Jewish men.
        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/NEW_JERSEY_SCIENCE_FICTION_FANS/
        Our Science Fiction group is
        for everyone 21 or older
        regardless of background or marital status. Younger fans should find
        another group.
        Please introduce yourself when you join and
        periodically as new members keep joining. We plan to get together at
        restaurants and to go to movies. We will see them in movie theaters,
        and, if people are kind enough, on people's home VCRs, or DVD
        players, for the technologically advanced among us. Buy your own
        movie tickets. Buy your own meals at Restaurants. Hopefully a
        typical event would involve going to a Science Fiction Movie and
        then to a Restaurant to discuss the movie we just saw.
        Are you a single Science Fiction fan looking for a soulmate? Perhaps
        you will find that person here. This club is not a New Jersey
        singles group per se, and is open to anyone over 21, regardless of
        background or marital status, nonetheless, love is a good thing.
        Many science fiction fans in New Jersey also happen to be Jewish.
        Most science fiction fans are male. For the single Jewish woman in
        New Jersey joining a science fiction group may be the ideal way to
        find her ideal man. Unlike most singles events, which tend to be
        attended by more women than men, most science fiction events are
        attended by more men than women.
        If you happen to be Jewish, Single and over 21
        Please state that you are Jewish, Single, 21 or over, when you apply

        c-span, also known as C-SPAN provides much valuable information.
        However, we are
        distressed that programs like
        Washington Journal on c-span seem to provide a forum for
        anti-Semites and enemies of Israel and the Jewish people in
        general who seem to not only call into that t.v. show, but get
        through, and get
        on the air, where they are seldom interupted or cut off by the show's
        moderators. We feel that a 2 minute delay could enable the show's
        moderators to
        screen out the anti-Semites and enemies of Israel and the Jewish
        people, however
        no such 2 minute delay seems to be in place. Moreover the moderators
        of that
        show and others do not seem to be of a mind to cut off the anti-
        Semites and
        other enemies of Israel and the Jewish people in general who
        regularly call into
        that show and others
        on c-span. We have therefore created this Yahoo Group in the hopes
        that members
        of the group will become regular viewers of c-span and will call in
        regularly to
        Washington Journal and other c-span call in t.v. shows, to support
        Israel and
        the Jewish people and to counter the anti-Semites and other enemies
        of Israel
        and the Jewish people whose calls are regularly aired on c-span. We
        also hope
        that members of our Yahoo Group will contact their U.S.
        Senators and members of Congress and President Bush at
        http://www.whitehouse.gov to see what can be done about
        the situation at c-span.

        If you know of other pro-Israel on line groups and/or pro-Israel
        groups that meet in real life please post the information about them.
        There are many avenues for Jewish activism. Support of Israel ,
        Support of the Jewish people, Opposition to anti-Semitism, to name a
        few.
        We believe that it is vital for Jewish survival that single Jews
        meet other single Jews, marry one another, and raise their children
        as Jews. Because there is a hole in our calendar from Friday night
        to Saturday night during which many single Jews go to non-Jewish
        singles events, meet non-Jews, marry non-Jews, and have children
        from those marriages who are not raised as Jews, the Jewish people
        faces a very severe problem. We urge everyone who reads this to
        contact his or her Rabbi and demand that his or her Rabbi hold
        regular Jewish singles Onegs on Friday nights.
        We feel that it is vitally important that single Jews go to Jewish
        singles events and meet other Jewish singles at those events.
        If you know anyone who happens to be Jewish who is hosting a
        singles event please ask him or her to consider hosting events just
        for Jewish singles.
        We also offer the opportunity at our on line Jewish singles groups

        Jewish Republican voice in Washington and across the country.
        http://www.rjchq.org/About/missionstatement.aspx
        For 25 years, the Republican Jewish Coalition (formerly the National Jewish
        Coalition) has been the voice for Jewish Republicans. The RJC was founded in
        1985 to be a permanent Jewish presence in the Republican community and a
        credible Republican presence in the Jewish community.
        As the unique bridge between the Jewish community and Republican leaders, the
        RJC earned the trust of the Reagan and Bush administration officials, national
        and state legislators, and party leaders.
        The RJC works to sensitize Republican decision makers in government and the
        party to the concerns of the Jewish community, while at the same time
        articulating Republican ideas and policies in the Jewish community.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition is the most important voice on Republican issues
        in the Jewish community and the most trusted and sought-out Jewish advisor to
        Republican leaders.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition has a tradition of leadership and activism,
        hosting events and activities such as the Presidential Candidates Forum,
        leadership trips to Israel for Members of Congress, governors and other leaders,
        and creating a high-level and high-profile Jewish presence at the Republican
        National Convention.
        No less importantly, the Republican Jewish Coalition has a growing grassroots
        outreach to Jewish Republicans, which has been very successful in the last few
        years. Using a variety of media, including an award-winning website, the RJC is
        attracting new members, adding to our current 40 chapters and building on the
        network of Jewish Republican activists already in place in key states around the
        country.
        The Republican Jewish Coalition has a highly successful Legislative Affairs
        Department, ensuring that our issues are heard on Capitol Hill. We lobby and
        advise leaders from state capitals to the U.S. Capitol and from the local party
        offices to the Republican National Committee. Through the ongoing work of our
        Communications Department, we make our case in the mainstream national media and
        the local Jewish papers.
        In addition, we have established the Republican Jewish Coalition Political
        Action Committee to expand our capabilities. This allows us to aggressively
        engage in political activities across the country and gives us the ability to
        strongly support, both politically and financially, the incumbents and
        challengers who reflect our priorities and principles.
        On every level, the Republican Jewish Coalition is committed to building a
        strong, effective, and respected Jewish Republican voice in Washington and

        Trump Finds A Suite Deal Hotel Co., Prince Buy Plaza
        Wednesday, April 12, 1995
        A Saudi prince and Singapore's CDL Hotels have bought a controlling stake in Donald Trump's Plaza hotel.
        Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, 37, nephew of Saudi Arabia's King Fahd, and CDL Hotels International Limited joined in a strategic partnership "to make the hotel the finest in the world," according to a statement released by Trump.
        The deal, announced Monday in Singapore, capped months of speculation about the fate of The Plaza, one of the city's most prestigious addresses.
        Trump who owned 51%, with the remainder held by a group of banks because of his debts to them will relinquish control of the fabled hotel.
        Under the agreement, which values the landmark at $325 million, the new investors have agreed to invest some $28 million to renovate the hotel over two years. They also must pay down a portion of the $300 million mortgage debt within three years, the statement said.
        The investors will "also guarantee payment of interest on the mortgage debt and payment of a preferred return to the bank-controlled entities."
        The deal will close no later than June 30.
        "I intend to roll up my sleeves and work hard to maximize value at the hotel," Trump, reportedly in Atlantic City yesterday, said in the statement.
        The San Francisco-based Fairmont Hotel Chain, of which the prince owns 50%, will manage The Plaza. Trump will be on the management committee.
        Trump spokesman Abraham Wallach declined to give details of the deal but said it leaves Trump with a "major equity interest and major ownership in the hotel."
        The Plaza last year reaped a net profit of $28 million before interest.
        Wallach said Trump also will devote himself to developing 50,000 square feet of luxury condos on the 17th, 18th and 19th floors of the hotel. He will develop another 50,000 square feet of vacant space in the basement and lower levels into high-end retail shops.
        Among other tasks, Trump will oversee labor union negotiations, construction issues and other New York real estate market matters, said Wallach.
        The planned $28 million renovation, said Wallach, is in keeping with Trump's original vision in 1988 to restore the hotel to its original elegance. But restoration efforts were hampered by a depressed real estate market.

        Trump sells The Plaza for $325M. (Donald Trump, The Plaza Hotel, New York, New York sold to Saudi Prince Walid bin Talal and Kewk Leng Peng)(Brief Article)
        Article from: Nation's Restaurant News | May 1, 1995

        Superyacht Kingdom 5KRKingdom 5KR is a 85.65 metres (281.0 ft) superyacht owned
        by Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal.
        The yacht was built in 1980 by the yacht builder Benetti at a cost $100 million
        (This is equivalent to $258,589,951 in 2009 and designed by Jon Bannenberg. Its
        initial interior was designed by Luigi Sturchio.
        It was originally built as Nabila for Saudi billionaire, Adnan Khashoggi (named
        for his daughter). At the time of its construction it was one of the largest
        yachts in the world.
        During its days as the Nabila it was featured in the James Bond movie Never Say
        Never Again, in which it was seen as the Flying Saucer (translated from Italian
        Disco Volante in the source novel, Thunderball), the villain's superyacht mobile
        HQ. It was also the inspiration for a track, Khashoggi's Ship, on the 1989 album
        by rock band Queen, The Miracle.
        After Khashoggi ran into financial problems, he sold the ship in 1988 to the
        Sultan of Brunei, who in turn sold it to Donald Trump for $29 million. Trump
        renamed it the Trump Princess after retrofitting it.
        When Trump ran into financial problems, he sold it to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal
        for $40 million in 1991.
        The yacht's latest name stems from the Prince's investment company, Kingdom
        Holding Company, his lucky number (5), and his children's initials ('K' and
        'R').

        Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, born 7 March 1955, is a
        member of the Saudi Royal Family. He is the nephew of the Saudi Arabian King
        Abdullah
        he has amassed a fortune
        through investments in real estate and the stock market.
        As of March 2010, his net worth is estimated at US$19.4 billion, up from $13.3
        billion, according to Forbes, making him the 19th richest person in the world on
        their list published in March 2010. He has been nicknamed by Time magazine as
        the Arabian Warren Buffett
        Al-Waleed owns several aircraft, all converted for private use: a Boeing 747, an
        Airbus 321 and an Hawker Siddeley 125. Also on order is an Airbus A380, the
        world's largest passenger aircraft, which is scheduled for delivery in 2012.
        This has been noted in the 2009 Guinness World Records as the largest private
        jet in the world.
        Among his many assets are: a 95% stake in Kingdom Holding Company; 91% ownership
        of Rotana Video & Audio Visual Company; 90% ownership of Lebanese Broadcasting
        Center ( LBCSAT ); 7% of News Corp (Fox News); about 6% of Citigroup; 17% of Al
        Nahar and 25% of Al Diyar, two daily newspapers published in Lebanon.
        With all of his ties to Prince Al-Waleed bin Talal and with his opposition to the
        liberation of Iraq, a view shared with Donald Trump by Obama, who also opposed the liberation of Iraq, Donald Trump seemed an unlikely person to challenge Obama
        on the issue of Obama's place of birth.
        The U.S. Constitution states that only natural born citizens, i.e. persons born in the United States or its territories (McCain was born in the U.S. territory called The Canal Zone) may become President of the United States.

        By first appearing to challenge Obama on the issue of his birth place and then later
        failing to challenge what is very widely viewed to be a forgery, the so called
        certificate of live birth produced by Obama, Trump served first as prosecutor against
        Obama, or at least an accuser of Obama and then served as defense attorney for Obama by failing to challenge that so called certificate of live birth that so many people have exposed as a forgery.

        the so-called certificate of live birth is clearly
        a Dan Rather scandal type forgery

        shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years

        Obama Bombshell: New Birth Certificate a Forgery
        http://www.infowars.com/obama-bombshell-new-birth-certificate-a-forgery/
        TRUMP KASHERS OBAMA
        For those unfamiliar with the term Kasher
        it means to make Kosher. It is often used to apply to kitchens and utensils, etc.
        First Trump attacked Obama ostensibly because Obama is
        NOT constitutionally qualified to be President of the United States
        because as we all know Obama has never produced a birth certificate
        certifying that he is a natural born citizen of the United States .
        The so-called certificate of live birth produced seemingly in
        response to the Trump attacks on Obama is clearly a forgery.
        But by moving away from the so called birther issue does not Trump
        appear to be certifying the forged so called certificate of live birth
        as genuine.
        Why would Trump do that. We recall that BOTH TRUMP AND OBAMA
        OPPOSED THE LIBERATION OF IRAQ .
        Was Trump really working for OBAMA
        Let us see if we can follow the money.

        The International Institute of Islamist Thought (IIIT), a Muslim
        Brotherhood-affiliated organization in Northern Virginia, met to launch the
        publication (pdf here) of an abridged edition of Rauf's What is Right with Islam
        is what is Right for America. The meeting was chaired by IIIT Vice President
        Jamal Barzinji, and the publisher of the abridged edition is a group called
        American Muslims for Constructive Engagement (AMCE).
        Also promoted in that series of Reader's Digest Condensed Islamism: Harvard's
        Noah Feldman's Fall and Rise of the Islamic State, 1) Who Speaks for Islam: By
        John Esposito and Dalia Mogahed. Dalia Mogahed is head of the Gallup project on
        Muslim public opinion, the most likely contact at Gallup for the earlier
        meetings on the Shariah Index Project (more on that relationship, and on the
        AMCE and their U.S. government backers in Part 2).
        The book series, by the way, was funded by the Kingdom Foundation – as in the
        Alwaleed Bin Talal Kingdom Foundation of Saudi Arabia.

        Like everyone else in the United States, the group stood transfixed
        as the events of September 11 unfolded. Present were former secretary
        of defense Frank Carlucci, former secretary of state James Baker III,
        and representatives of the bin Laden family. This was not some
        underground presidential bunker or Central Intelligence Agency
        interrogation room. It was the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., the
        plush setting for the annual investor conference of one of the most
        powerful, well-connected, and secretive companies in the world: the
        Carlyle Group. And since September 11, this little-known company has
        become unexpectedly important... there
        is nothing accidental about the cast of characters that this
        private-equity powerhouse has assembled in the 14 years since its
        founding. Among those associated with Carlyle are former U.S.
        President George Bush Sr., former U.K. Prime Minister John Major, and
        former President of the Philippines Fidel Ramos. And Carlyle has
        counted, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdul Aziz Alsaud of Saudi
        Arabia, and Osama bin Laden's family among its high-profile
        clientele."
        Shafig bin Laden is a half-brother to Osama bin Laden,
        and was in attendance at the Carlyle Group's
        Washington, DC conference at the
        Ritz-Carlton Hotel on September 11, 2001

        "Dreams by a Muslim group to build a mosque near Ground Zero may not match its
        means.
        The ambitious and immediately controversial proposal to create the $100 million
        religious and cultural center does not seem to be backed by any cash.
        The American Society for Muslim Advancement, which proposed the center, has
        assets of less than $1 million, according to its most recent audited financial
        statement.
        A sister organization, the Cordoba Initiative, listed assets of less than
        $20,000 in 2008. Its tax filings do not disclose at least $60,000 in private
