As foreign aid increases, so does terrorism

As Pakistan approaches the international community for massive assistance for the third time in six years, donors face difficult choices. Three disasters, starting with the 2005 earthquake in Kashmir, then the 2008 financial crisis, and now the massive flooding, were not Pakistan’s fault. Nevertheless, as violence and terrorism emanating from Pakistan increase, donors must ask if aid to Pakistan is improving international security.

According to aiddata.org, the international community (including international aid groups but excluding the United States) provided nearly $22 billion in international aid from 2004 through 2008 (nearly $2.5 billion in 2004, increasing to more than $7 billion in 2008). Since Sept. 11, 2001, the United States has, according to the Congressional Research Service, provided more than $18.5 billion in aid to Pakistan. Of this aid, more than $12.5 billion was military. Supposedly this aid to Pakistan is essential for counterterrorism.

How the Palestinian Authority treats its own people

A few years ago I briefly visited the Balata refugee camp with its 20,000 residents. The camp is inside the West Bank city of Nablus—that is, within the jurisdiction of the Palestinian Authority (PA). It is where many of the Arabs of Jaffa settled when they fled the armed conflict that flared up immediately after the November 1947 UN partition resolution dividing Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states. Most of Balata’s current residents are the children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of the original refugees. Thus, a new baby born in Balata today is still designated by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) as a refugee dislocated by the 1948 Arab-Israeli war and hence entitled to substantial material benefits for life, or at least until the conflict is settled. That infant will grow up and attend a segregated school run by UNRWA. In UN schools and cultural clubs financed by American tax dollars, Balata’s children, like the children in similar camps in Gaza and neighboring Arab countries, are nurtured on the myth that someday soon they will return in triumph to their ancestors’ homes by the Mediterranean Sea.

While awaiting redemption, Balata’s Palestinian residents are prohibited, by the Palestinian Authority, from building homes outside the camp’s official boundaries. They do not vote on municipal issues and receive no PA funding for roads or sanitation. As part of Prime Minister Salam Fayyad’s “economic renaissance” and state-building project, a brand new Palestinian city named Rawabi is planned for the West Bank near Bethlehem. But there will be no room at the inn for the Balata refugees. Sixty years after the first Arab-Israeli war, Balata might accurately be defined as a UN-administered, quasi-apartheid, welfare ghetto.

Lars Vilks in North America

Lars Vilks, of Sweden, is an academically trained art theorist having earned a PhD in art history from Lund University in 1987. In 1988 he moved to Norway and worked at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts until 1993. From 1997 to 2003, he was a professor in art theory at the Bergen National Academy of the Arts. A self-taught artist and mostly an outsider in the Swedish art scene, he creates various types of art ranging from sculptures and paintings to drawings. When his work is discussed by media and art world insiders, it is seen as deliberately provocative.

He has described himself as an equal opportunity critic of religion having criticized all religions in one way or another in his work but in 2007, he crossed the rubicon when he produced a series of drawings depicting the prophet Mohammad as a roundabout dog.

Since that time, he has received death threats, protests have occurred during his speaking engagements, his home was the site of an arson attempt and authorities discovered an international plot to murder him. The revelation of Philadelphia’s own Jihad-Jane’s assassination plot against Vilks in October 2009 leaves no doubt that his life is threatened. And for what? For having drawn a picture!

Hezbollah openly threatens civil war in Lebanon

Hezbollah, taking a page out of the Mafia playbook, is telling the entire country of Lebanon that anyone who supports the findings of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon on who was behind the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri (and 22 others) will be, pretty much, treated as a Zionist enemy and killed.

Venezuela a Hotbed of Anti-Semitic Rantings by the Governing Elites

Unlike many anti-Semitic hypocrites in Europe or the USA, Chavistas don’t even bother to camouflage their Jew-hatred; it comes naked. Just take a look at Aporrea.org, their most important website, which is sponsored by the Venezuelan government. Use the searchword “judios” (Jews), and you will be amazed how similar the Venezuelan “socialism of the 21st century” and the German National Socialism of the 1930s are. In this article some examples will be given — which are perhaps not even the most bizarre ones (there are so many, and the race is really too close to call):

Paper to Cartel: What Do You Want Us to Publish?

The biggest newspaper in Mexico’s most violent city will restrict drug war coverage after the killing of its second journalist in less than two years, just as international press representatives will urge the government to make security for journalists a national priority.

In a front-page editorial Sunday, El Diario de Juarez asked drug cartels warring in this city across from El Paso, Texas, to say what they want from the newspaper, so it can continue its work without further death, injury or intimidation of its staff.

“Leaders of the different organizations that are fighting for control of Ciudad Juarez: The loss of two reporters from this publishing house in less than two years represents an irreparable sorrow for all of us who work here, and, in particular, for their families,” the editorial said. “We ask you to explain what you want from us, what we should try to publish or not publish, so we know what to expect.”

Don’t think too much

People who think more about whether they are right have more cells in an area of the brain known as the frontal lobes.

UK scientists, writing in Science, looked at how brain size varied depending on how much people thought about decisions. But a nationwide survey recently found that some people think too much about life. These people have poorer memories, and they may also be depressed.

Democracy can make no compromises with theocracy

The separation of church and state requires people of different faiths – indeed, compels people of different faiths – to live and let live. It is the constitutional prerequisite for freedom of religion. Without it, people of dissenting religious beliefs live only a theological whim away from religious persecution. Or worse: from religious slaughter. This is the central conundrum of contemporary Islam.

What They Say in English vs. What They Say in Arabic

A number of senior Palestinian officials who do not have much credibility among their own people are now trying to sell themselves to Israelis as “partners for peace.”

This is the same group of Palestinians who in the past advised Yasser Arafat to reject then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak’s offer during the botched Camp David summit in 2000. They were among Arafat’s inner circle when he walked out of the Camp David summit and initiated the “Second Intifada.”

These are also the same officials who, back then, justified the eruption of the intifada as a “natural response” to Israel’s refusal to comply with 100% of the Palestinians’ demands.

Best places to survive the apocalypse

It’s the end of the world.

These days it’s impossible to avoid the hype about Dec. 21, 2012, or “Doomsday,” as it’s often called. Type “2012” and “end of the world” into Google and you get nearly 8 million hits. YouTube offers hundreds of thousands of clips that warn viewers about their fate and advise them on how to survive. And Hollywood has been cashing in with blockbuster apocalyptic films that explore everything from plagues and nuclear warfare to aliens and zombies.
While many may scoff at the thought of preparing for the end of the world, there are thousands of people worldwide who are doing just that. They’re stockpiling canned food, planting gardens, installing solar panels, buying up ammunition and building survival bunkers.

You may think these people are crazy, but if the apocalypse happened tomorrow, where would you go? Check out our list of the top places in the U.S. to wait out the apocalypse and maybe we’ll see you in 2013.

100,000 children attend radical Hamas summer camps

Hamas summer camps continued to gain strength this past summer as about 100,000 children underwent radical anti-Israel indoctrination by the terror group which also attacked United Nations camps, its main competition, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center.

According to the report, more than 100,000 children and teenagers participated in the Hamas camps which included paramilitary training and military parades. The Islamic Jihad terrorist organization also opened 51 different summer camps for over 10,000 children.

Israel & Turkey: A Tale of Two Standards at the Toronto Film Festival

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. It was the age of wisdom. It was the age of foolishness. (Actually in this case, it was mostly foolishness.)

For two years now, the Toronto International Film Festival has had a program called City-to-City, highlighting movies from the present and past featuring a particular world city.

In 2009, the city was from a country that has invaded neighbors and occupied for some decades territory that is inhabited by an internationally-recognized people of another ethnic group and language who want a state of their own on that land. In battling against insurgents and terrorists, that nation sometimes violates human rights and has been credibly accused of war crimes.

In 2010, the city was from a country that has invaded neighbors and occupied for some decades territory that is inhabited by an internationally-recognized people of another ethnic group and language who want a state of their own on that land. In battling against insurgents and terrorists, that nation sometimes violates human rights and has been credibly accused of war crimes.

In 2009, that city was Tel Aviv. In 2010, that city is Istanbul. One of those City-to-City programs created a storm of controversy, public boycotts, open letters, a film being pulled. The other has created the proverbial perfect pin-dropping environment. And if you can’t figure out which is which, maybe I shouldn’t be quoting “A Tale of Two Cities,” but something more appropriate like “Rip Van Winkle.”

The City-to-City program for 2010 has nine feature films and a program of eight avant-garde shorts and gets under way Friday evening with a film called “40,” apparently about migration to Istanbul from within Turkey and from abroad.

And the crickets have been chirping.
