ISIS terrorists behead three prisoners and the world is aghast with fury, anger and threats of massive retaliation. President Obama vows to "Take out Isis." Even the UN human rights chief said,
"Grave, horrific, human rights violations are being committed daily by ISIS and associated armed groups. They are systematically targeting men, women and children based on their ethnic, religious or sectarian affiliation and are ruthlessly carrying out widespread ethnic and religious cleansing in the areas under their control."
If all of the above horrors being committed in the name of Islam by ISIS are enough to raise the ire of our world leaders, why is Hassan Rouhani, the president of Iran, being given the red carpet treatment at the UN this week? And why has President Obama offered to meet with him and chat? Isn't Iran the chief supporter of terror around the world? Aren't Iranian citizens routinely hanged, stoned, beaten and raped in public? Hasn't this thug (we mean Rouhani) threatened to incinerate six million Jews in Israel once his nation goes nuclear? And there is no reason to doubt the sincerity of his words. So, as we say on Pesach, "Mah Nishtana?" What's the difference between the actions and plans of ISIS and its Jihadist brother, Iran? It's mind boggling to militarily attack one and then share a cup of coffee, a handshake and dialogue with the other. How long before we begin negotiations with the decapitators of ISIS?
Another Islamist "friendly enemy" of ours is the emirate of Qatar. Our possible future president, Hillary Clinton, as a partner in the Clinton Foundation, has accepted over six million dollars from that same nation that has funded terrorist Hamas with nearly one half billion dollars and ISIS with an indefinite amount. Qatar, we recently learned, has been tampering with our foreign policy wonk, Martin Indyk, to the tune of fifteen million dollars. And he was John Kerry's top emissary to the Middle East. Terrorist financiers seem to have our politicians digging deeply into their pockets. One can be assured that money buys cooperation and that signals trouble for the targets of Islam; Israel, Jews and Western civilization. Follow the money trail.
We innocently play the game of selective fury with the tyrants, dictators and human rights violators of the world. Cuba is close to being accredited as our southern neighbor with all the rights and privileges accorded any truly democratic nation. All the while, Michael Gross, an innocent Jewish, American citizen rots in a Cuban hell hole. Other political prisoners are incarcerated by Cuba without a creased brow from out president. The golf game goes on, undisturbed.
Political correctness and the flow of money, not morality or virtue, seep into our nation's mechanisms and pollutes the actions of our officials. If Israel, our singular friend in the Middle East would only be more flexible in its relations with Palestine and if it would change its policies to be more congruent with and supportive of Obama and company, all would be well in that hell hole of an area in which it finds itself.
But we know the score and the rules of the game our country is playing. And it's a stacked and dangerous one. Unscrupulous players with unlimited funding and Islamic goals of worldwide conquest are the dealers at the head of the table. They hold the cards. It is our responsibility to prevent them from dealing a fatal blow to Israel and all of Western Society. If we do not do so shortly, the game will be over.
