  • Humberto Fontova: “The Don is slipping.” Looks like it might be true this time?

  • asombra: There’s a misspelling on that plaque. It should have read “Esta es tu caca, Fidel.”

  • asombra: Don’t worry. Castro, Inc. knows what it’s doing, and it knows its public.

  • asombra: Either these people are pitiful idiots or they think everyone else is.

  • asombra: Because, you know, Reuters cares SO much about Cubans, so it really “feels their pain.” Just like Clinton did.

Thirteen centuries

Here's a audio recording of Brian Cosgrove dying on the 105th floor of 2 World Trade Center on September 11, 2001 as he spoke to 911 emergency services in New York. I post this so that all of us know who we are fighting. There is nothing new here. In one way or another, Islam, […]

Friend or Foe: Who Goes There and Who Doesn’t Go There

Obama has turned down a request for a meeting next week from Israeli PM Netanyahu. Yet, he has invited Egypt's newly elected Muslim Brotherhood president to the White House next week. I guess that is when Obama will decide if the new Egypt he built will be considered an ally or an enemy... That's funny, […]

Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, today issued the following statement after meeting with Raymond McGrath, the new Coordinator for Cuban Affairs at the U.S. Department of State.

With Friends Like Obama…

You would think that after his party's ugly platform vote on the floor of the DNC convention Obama would at least try to show he was sincere in his support of Israel by having a meeting requested by Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu. But no... The White House's response marks a new low in relations between […]

Lying About Lying … The Tale Of Two Tapes

Lots of background on this back and forth today between Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren at The Washington Examiner. However, The Washington Examiner is using Debbie Wasserman Scultz's own audio to counter her claim that the news site lied. You be the judge (starting at around the […]

Letter from ECI Chairman William Kristol to President Obama

President Obama's re-election campaign now includes a group, Rabbis for Obama to help shore up the Jewish vote.   William Kristol, founder and editor of  The Weekly Standard knows, as more and more members of the Jewish community are realizing, that Obama's policy toward Israel has not continued the traditional U.S. position as an ally of the Jewish state. […]

Why have so many Jewish socialists abandoned their people and heritage?

I've struggled seeking an answer to that question, as have others here at Babalú.  Robert Wistrich, Hebrew University professor of European and Jewish History, and the leading scholar on anti-Semitism , recently published From Ambivalence to Betrayal:  The Left, the Jews, and Israel. In his review, Isi Leibler concludes:  "This is a magisterial work, providing a comprehensive understanding of […]

“My Name is Guri Weinberg and I am the Son of Moshe Weinberg, the Wrestling Coach Murdered at the 1972 Olympics … I am Not Going Away”

Guri Weinberg has choice words for the IOC and its snubbing of the victims and families of the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre... Recently, new information about the Munich Massacre at the 1972 Olympic Games was released by German police as a result of pressure from German investigative reporters. It was reported that the “Black September” […]

The Olympics: Remembering Munich … Or Not

Every Olympics (summer or winter) NBC treats us to the background stories on the athletes participating in the games. Sometimes I get the feeling it's a rub-your-nose-in-it-you-selfish-decadent-Americans tone, mostly when it deals with an athlete from a foreign country. (If I had to hear the heart-tugging story of orphaned and abandoned young Russian figure skater […]

The Fog of Political Battle – Updated With Video

With Mitt Romney traveling abroad Team Obama find themselves re-writing Obama History. By the way, ever notice these people refer to in-their-face facts and truth as "fog"? London Fog: Just the other day there was the remark Romney made in London regarding the bust of hero Winston Churchill. It had been on display since shortly […]

“You are Going to Ignore This Particular Problem Until It Swims Up and Bites You In The Ass”

Right now Rep. Michelle Bachmann is having a heated back and forth with Rep. Keith Ellison over CAIR and The Muslim Brotherhood in the United States. Right now it's pages and pages of letters being exchanged, with Ellison painting Bachmann as a nut. The FBI is reporting it was too concerned about political correctness and […]

Obama’s “Triple Play” Chutzpah

Nothing like a Friday news dump: "Obama Blows Off Congress, Funds Palestinians, Lies About PA Stance on Israel" Andrew McCarthy of National Review Online is reporting (and calling it a "Triple Play"), via the foreign press because our American news organizations are either disinterested or busy expressing its own anti-Israel bias, that Obama has, once […]

CNN the Castro-Crescent News Network

Frankly, the alliance of the communist left and radical Islam gives me nightmares. I first became aware of this frightening trend years ago when my husband and  I noticed a definite anti-Israel bias in LA Times articles on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.   Always, always, these biased articles were penned by liberals, supposedly the tolerant, peace loving defenders […]

Bibi rejects the New York Times

In the spirit of the season, a very Happy Hanukkah gift from Bibi Netanyahu.  It's a thorough dressing down of the unethical rag--enjoy! From Aish.com Bibi Rejects the New York Times by Ron Dermer, Senior Advisor to the Israeli Prime Minister Why Netanyahu refuses to publish an op-ed in the so-called “newspaper of record.”  Ron […]

The Arrogant Amateur: “I try not to pat myself too much on the back…”

Hope it doesn't hurt his golf swing straining his arm like that... It is really hard to see, after the last three years, why Obama's approval with Jews is on the rise in, of all places, Israel. He has willingly supported the sham the "Arab Spring" that has removed despots in countries that were either […]
