Iranian Missiles Not Imaginary

According To Iranian Officials, Obama Administration Gave Unwritten Consent In The Nuclear Talks And In The JCPOA Negotiations For Iran To Develop Ballistic Missiles With A Range Of Only 2,000 km – That Is, Capable Of Striking Israel But Not Europe | MEMRI – The Middle East Media Research Institute

It seems that our last President was talking out of both sides of his mouth when it came to protecting everyday Israelis–and Europeans, and Americans, and the rest of Western Civilization.  

Read the report for yourself.  All of it.  It contains information that shocked me to my core.

As far as the reliability of the source: MEMRI (Middle East Media Research Institute) is an organization that simply translates media from the Arabic, Farsi, and other Middle Eastern languages (as well as African languages) into English.  Their website (link above) is largely geared toward the academic and institutional audience, so much of its content is not accessible by non-affiliated individuals; however, plenty of content is open to the public.

MEMRI translates television from Middle Eastern sources such as the Palestinian Authority, Hamas, Islamic State, and Iranian sources.  Thus we can learn what these entities are learning from their media.

Especially shocking are the children’s TV programs and videos made by the above sources, teaching children everything from hatred of America to hatred of Christians and Jews.  This stuff is not staged.  It’s simply what’s there.

If your mind is not open to plain reality, please do open it.  Look at the evidence.  

I find that the vast majority of Westerners get their information from highly biased news sources such as NPR, the BBC, CNN, and the New York Times.  These outlets do not present the facts on the ground.  I believe it’s essential to look at primary sources–what the Arab world is sharing, and I don’t mean the incredibly watered-down English version of Al-Jazeera, which is entirely different from the Arabic edition.  You can read translations of the Arabic Al-Jazeera on the MEMRI site.

Thank you for taking the time to educate yourself!

The Emperor Has No Clothes On!

Well, folks, I’ve been ranting about this topic seemingly forever, but nobody pays any attention.

But a nation with whom our diplomatic relations have been kind of strained lately, for good reasons, apparently got my message–and is broadcasting it on TV!

This nation happens to speak a different language than we do, but thankfully our friends at the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is in the business of translating media from other languages so we can understand how other cultures think.  MEMRI is located in Israel, on a street in Jerusalem that I used to pass by every month to see my shrink when I lived there.  It’s staffed by a group of linguistic experts who usually focus on terrorism related topics, but this show caught their eye, and I’m glad it did.

Watch and comment, please!

Leftism Absent Morality in Israel | commentary

Background:  Israeli settlers in disputed territories want to become legitimate owners of their land.  There are Palestinians who are willing and wanting to sell or even trade, say, an olive grove for a vineyard.  But Mahmoud Abbas has forbidden that Arabs sell to Jews or Christians, on pain of death.  Still, it happens in secret, because not all Arabs and Jews are enemies, as Western media and extremist Muslim groups like ISIS and the Taliban would have you believe.  We are mostly neighbors, colleagues, and co-workers.  But there is a dictator, and this capsizes the true desire of the common people to live and let live.

This article gives us a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes, ferreted out by a settler who infiltrates an Israeli “peace activist” group to see what they really do.  What he discovered is something terrifying.

Please click on the link and read the article for yourselves.

It’s a short read, yet brings to light a hole in the bucket of yet one more hope for peace.
