‘Absolutely Uncertain’: Short Documentary Reveals How Obama Says One Thing, Does Another When It Comes To Israel
What you are about to watch not only brings to light the degree to which Barack Obama was self-deluded prior to being sworn in to office, it also effectively exposes the catastrophic consequences of a puerile, ineffectual foreign policy entirely modelled after the famous words of the late Rodney King …
Description: “A new, 18-minute mini-documentary follows the journey of Irina, a 23-year-old liberal, Jewish New Yorker who voted for Obama in 2008. Yet as her connection to Israel has grown, and she has learned more about the President’s policies across the Middle East and towards Israel in particular, Irina has come to realize that ‘when the chips are down,’ the President may not ‘have Israel’s back’ as he says.”
Pakistan: Hundreds Killed By Flooding, Thousands Injured, 350,000 Displaced, Crops Destroyed, Millions Affected
Some 350,000 people have been forced from their homes and another 4.7 million people affected by the flooding since August 22, Ahmed Kamal of the National Disaster Management Authority said.
More than 15,000 villages have been affected and many houses destroyed or damaged in the past five weeks, he said.
Pakistan has suffered a series of devastating inundations, affecting millions of people, in recent years.
Flooding last year killed 470 people and impacted 9.1 million others, Kamal said.
In the worst-affected area of Sindh province, in southeastern Pakistan, the waters submerged more than 4.5 million acres of farming land, damaging an estimated 80% of cash crops.” Read more.
‘The embassy has credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting US female missionaries in Egypt,’ the American mission in Cairo said in a statement on its website.
‘Accordingly, US citizens should exercise vigilance, taking necessary precautions to maintain their personal security,’ it said, calling on Americans to ensure they can be contacted by diplomatic missions in case of emergency.
On Friday, a Republican congresswoman froze a request by the US administration for $450 million in cash for the Egyptian government, saying it needed new scrutiny amid rocky US ties with Cairo.
Earlier this month, US President Barack Obama said Egypt was neither a friend nor a foe in the wake of last year’s uprising that toppled president Hosni Mubarak and brought Islamists to power.
Obama’s comments came after a mob raided the US embassy in Cairo in protest at a film mocking Islam made in the United States that sparked deadly unrest across the Muslim world.
Coptic Christians, who make up six to 10 percent of Egypt’s population of 82 million, regularly complain of discrimination and marginalisation. They have also been the target of numerous sectarian attacks.
The Copts have been nervous since the Islamists came to power.” Source – Google News.

1. Egypt policy
The administration has been consistently one-step behind events in crafting an Egypt policy. The White House’s initial backing of President Hosni Mubarak lost any support it might have gained from the crowds in Tahrir Square. Then the United States shocked its Mideast allies by pulling support from the Egyptian leader. The United States is now faced with a hostile regime in Cairo, where a Muslim Brotherhood-headed government could hardly be bothered to act when a mob tried to overrun the U.S. embassy.
2. Iran nuclear program
During his 2008 campaign, Obama posited that the Iranian leadership was bellicose mostly in reaction to misguided policies of the Bush administration. Unlike his predecessor, he would be willing to sit down and talk with the mullahs, confident that his powers of persuasion would convince them to lay down their nuclear ambitions. Four years later, Obama seems has been more concerned about cutting back our nuclear arsenal than trying to stop Tehran.
3. Diplomatic security
How could a U.S. ambassador be at an unsecured consulate in a hostile location in the Arab world on the anniversary of September 11? Christopher Stevens’ murder by a terror mob need could have been avoided if the U.S. heeded the warnings that violence was afoot. The State Department had even issued a travel alert to Americans about going to Libya, yet the consulate had minimal security.
4. Libya explanation
Long after the entire world knew that the strike on the Libyan consulate was a terrorist attack, the Obama administration continued its laughable explanation that the assault was solely the result of a spontaneous mob enraged by an anti-Islamic film. As Sen. John McCain pointed out, protesters don’t usually bring rocket-propelled grenades to a political rally.
5. Disdain for Israel
The one ally the United States could always count on in the Middle East—Israel—has consistently gotten the shaft from the White House. Obama has shown nothing if not disdain for the Jewish state, at one point offending Israeli officials by Read more…
NYC Subway Bows To Allah, Bans Conservative Ads Against Jihad On The Basis It Will ‘Incite Or Provoke Violence’
New York City’s MTA has decided to ignore the First Amendment, opting instead to now ban any and all ads that they fear may “incite or provoke violence.” This can arguably mean the following: Since ads speaking against Christianity do not incite or provoke violence and ads speaking against Israel do not incite or provoke violence, those ads may be coming soon to a terminal near you. But ads speaking against violent jihad and Islamic extremism will never again see the light of day. Terrorism may be winning this battle, but the war is a whole other story …
Revelation 17:2, “With her the kings of the earth committed adultery and the inhabitants of the earth were intoxicated with the wine of her adulteries.”
By Billy Hallowell – “The epic battle between American Freedom Defense Initiative executive director and blogger Pamela Geller and The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) culminated with a court decision that forced the transit authority to permit the display of controversial ads about radical Islam. But the story didn’t end there. As TheBlaze reported this morning, Geller’s case caused the MTA to rethink the manner in which it handles First Amendment issues, leading to the adoption of some potentially-controversial measures.
On Friday, TheBlaze spoke with a spokesperson who confirmed some of the details surrounding the case, while clarifying the new changes that passed on Thursday. As noted, one of the emergent provisions that was added into the public company’s advertising standards in the wake of the Geller debate allows the MTA to deny ads it believes could incite violence (this was not mentioned in the press release the agency put out about the changes).
As previously noted, a document, reflecting yesterday’s changes, was provided by the MTA to TheBlaze this morning. It highlights the transit authority’s advertising standards and reads, in part, ‘The licensee (‘advertising contractor’) shall not display or maintain any advertisement that falls within one or more of the following categories.’ One of the category sections reads:
The advertisement, or any information contained in it, is directly adverse to the commercial or administrative interests of the MTA or is harmful to the morale of MTA employees or contains material the display of which the MTA reasonably foresees would incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace, and so harm, disrupt, or interfere with safe, efficient, and orderly transit operations.

Canada: Muslim Mother Stabbed Daughter In Attempted Honour Killing, ‘It’s Good For Your Good, Let Me Finish’
By Graeme Hamilton, National Post – “MONTREAL – For months, Bahar Ebrahimi had been rebelling against her parents, complaining their Afghan culture and Muslim religion were suffocating her. ‘I want to enjoy my life. I want to feel what the other ones feel,’ she told them, according to her mother’s statement to police.
It was June, 2010, Grand Prix weekend in downtown Montreal, and on two straight nights the 19-year-old stayed out past dawn against her parents’ wishes.
For her mother, Johra Kaleki, the behaviour confirmed that all her efforts to steer her eldest daughter on the right path had failed. ‘I felt like she would never be fixed,’ she told Sgt.-Det. Alexandre Bertrand in an interrogation video played Wednesday in Quebec Court.
As her crying husband spoke to Bahar in the basement of their Dorval home, Ms. Kaleki went upstairs and grabbed a large knife from the kitchen counter, the one she used to chop meat, she recounted. ‘I said, ‘This is the time.’ ‘
She hid the knife under her T-shirt, returned to the basement, and told her husband the problem would best be resolved between mother and daughter. ‘Just leave us alone for five minutes,’ she said she told him. ‘Don’t come until I call you.’
He left and she cuddled her first-born and told her to lie on her stomach so she could give her a back massage. ‘Then I stab her, stab her neck,’ she confessed. ‘She said, ‘No Mom!’ I said, ‘It’s for your good. Let me finish.’’
Earlier in the interrogation, Sgt.-Det. Bertrand has asked whether the knife blade was sharp. ‘No, it wasn’t,’ she replied. ‘I wish it was. I wanted to give her the peace that she needed.’
Bahar survived the attack, suffering serious knife wounds to her head and shoulder. Ms. Kaleki, 40, is charged with attempted murder, aggravated assault and illegal use of a weapon.
Her husband, alerted by Bahar’s screams, rushed downstairs and grabbed the knife from Ms. Kaleki, the court heard. ‘I said to my husband, let me finish her.’’ She tried to choke her daughter, she said, and after Bahar escaped, she chased her upstairs and tried to break down the locked door to the bedroom where she was calling 911.
She was arrested, and after being treated in hospital for a knife wound on her own arm, she told her story to Sgt.-Det. Bertrand.” Read more.
