I know who you are
I know what you have fought for
I know what you went through
I know what you were looking forward to...

I look at you
I see you in pain
I whisper in your ear
I say to you "wake up, before it's late..."

I am sorry
I am only one
I am so tiny
I am no giant to help you
I cannot put you up alone

I see you bleed
I see your blood pouring out
I see your pain
I call for others to come and help

I am sorry
I am only one
I am so terribly tiny

I see your eyes closing
I see your lips closing
I see your body go lose
I see you so fragile

I wish they would listen to me
I wish they would come and help
I wish their eyes would feel your pain
I wish their hearts would see you in pain

I am sorry
I am so terribly sorry
I am only one

I pray
I pray for you
I pray to the Only One who can help
I pray His Will will be to save you

I pray to G-d to save you, America...

These are the names of all the Marines who have given their lives for you this week...:












There is no media for them... not even a mention of their names.

May they rest in peace surrounded by our loving thankfulness and eternal appreciation for the sacrifice they have done to protect us, to keep the enemy as far as possible from us, to keep us safe...

May their families be comforted not only by their memories but by the collective embrace from the American People who are standing up to honor our heroes.

“There are in fact two things, science and opinion; the former begets knowledge, the latter ignorance.” Hippocrates (c460-c.377 BCE)

My heart bleeds today... It’s sad to see a giant, a champion in the world, the world superpower being brought down to her knees, brick by brick, by those who are supposed to nurture and protect her, by those who were supposed to bring improvements and make her stronger.

A few months ago, I had feared this would happen a few decades later. Little did I know how close this was and that it's happening right now, in front of our eyes, as Americans look on idly, impassively as if under the effect of an overdose of anesthesia.

However, as the month of July hits its final days, Americans not yet used to their new financial devastating situation have found the way to mentally and actually get into vacation mode regardless of the innermost crisis the country is undergoing.

July 21st, 2011, will remain a sad date in American History, but a glorious day in the personal political agenda of president Barack Hussein Obama who has succeeded in closing NASA’s Space Shuttle Program, a 30-year old chapter of American science advancement and progress in world History. And at the same time, he has stopped altogether the American era of human space exploration.

Thankfully, records showing these news are there to refresh our memories: “In a far-reaching restatement of goals for the nation’s space agency, NASA administrator Charles Bolden says President Obama has ordered him to pursue three new objectives: to “re-inspire children” to study science and math, to “expand our international relationships,” and to “reach out to the Muslim world.” Of those three goals, Bolden said in a recent interview with al-Jazeera, the mission to reach out to Muslims is “perhaps foremost,” because it will help Islamic nations “feel good” about their scientific accomplishments.” He then added that “better interaction with the Muslim world would ultimately advance space travel.” Really.

NASA’s Space Shuttle program, actually called Space Transportation System (STS) was the US government’s manned launch vehicle program from 1981 to 2011. A manned space vehicle has a human crew and possibly passengers, unlike robotic space probes or remotely-controlled satellites.

Speaking in terms of painstaking scientific progress, this decision is Obama’s stabbing in the back of NASA’s neck -thought some bullfighting terminology could be quite ad hoc in this case.

As the Atlantis crew returned from a 13-day trip after they had delivered supply and spare parts to the International Space Station to American astronauts who will continue to live there, but who will from now on, have to rely upon Russian spacecrafts and private companies for future transportation. In the words of Governor Perry of Texas, our astronauts are now good for “hitchhiking”.

Closing this high-level American scientific endeavor results also in roughly 4,000 of our top scientists, researchers, physicists, astronomers and others to become unemployed. I don’t know about you, but I feel it’s also a humiliating situation for the intellectual cream of the crop in our country.

Don’t be surprised if in the near future you might hear that Muslim governments are opening space center(s) and offering wonderfully paid jobs to our unemployed scientists. And I truly hope I am mistaken.

Masterful stroke coming from a leader who succeeded in being chosen as the highest ranking civil servant in America and who took the oath of office of the President of the Republic of the United States of America.

As a reminder, the text of the oath, as set down in Article II, Section 1, of the US Constitution, that reads:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

In direct contrast to Governor Perry’s concerns, Rep. Pete Olson, R-Sugar Land, presented a more optimistic approach to the final Atlantis’ landing, arguing that this “chapter is by no means the end of human space flight,” he said, and continued: “It is the beginning of the next generation of scientists, engineers and unforeseen discoveries.”

However, despite Congressman Olsen’s remarks, yesterday was the end of America’s 30-year chapter of science advancement and an almost incomparable progress that had placed America as the uncontested leader of the pack on Earth, in the record time of barely over 200-years since her birth.

Congressman Olson said he is committed to securing NASA with resources for the next generation of human space flight. But it’s obvious that in this, he does not see eye to eye with this president.

In yet another surreal moment, at a White House meeting with the press, press secretary Jay Carney said the president “has tremendous regard for the (space) program and for all the folks at NASA who participated in making it such a tremendous success. And he looks forward to NASA’s future and moving forward with space exploration in the future.” Sure. The fact is that the president and his Administration just closed it. Actions speak louder than words, after all.

As NASA space shuttle ends, NASA Administrator said in an interview that he was “incredibly thrilled and ... especially happy for the employees [because they lost their jobs...?] who have made this program possible for the last 30 years...” As we see, Charles Bolden’s tone has changed...

All that said, true to his word, Mr. Obama has now made sure to bring down America’s scientific advance as his quiet, untold, contribution so that “... it will help Islamic nations “feel good” about their [poor] scientific accomplishments.”

The question is simply when will Americans realize the damage this president is bringing to their nation, as he advances his liberal, progressive, socialist, pro-Muslim agenda?

I may be wrong.

But what if I am not?

Note to the Reader: Please, remember I am writing, protected by my First Amendment Right to Freedom of Speech.

The witch-hunt of the XXIst century began at the onset of this month.

A scandal has erupted, reminiscent of Medieval witch-hunts, which, had it happened in the Middle Ages, it would have likely ended at the mast fire.

The scandal started with the alleged corruption and criminality in regard with the News of the World and London’s Metropolitan Police. However, the actual scandal was nurtured not by the public but, surprise, this time, by members of the British Parliament, the BBC and the left-wing media going for Murdoch’s jugular.

To add spice to the concoction, American “justice” has now joined in the witch-hunt, making this an all-round, all-time ruthless persecution of Australian-born American mogul, Rupert Murdoch.


Irrational anger suddenly erupted because of Murdoch’s NewsCorp intention to buy BSkyB Television, where he anyway had some 39% shares.

That caused, apparently, the ire of the BBC and the majority of Murdoch’s newspaper rivals who ended up angry and shouting at the government, in the name of pluralism, something in the kind of “stop him.”

Whether one wants to consider the goodness the media benefited from Murdoch’s contribution or not, especially for Conservatives but also for others, his presence improved journalistic standards and enlarged the accessibility to information for the general public.

As British author and Murdoch's biographer, Sir William Shawcross, explains: “Then in 1981 Rupert Murdoch bought Times Newspapers and moved production of them and the Sun and the News of the World to Wapping. There, with the help of Margaret Thatcher’s new labour laws, he did battle with the unions. It was brutal but he won a famous and vital victory. Today there would probably be no Guardian, no Independent, no Daily Telegraph if Murdoch had not made the industry profitable. Pluralism in British newspapers today is thanks to Murdoch. Similarly with television. At the end of the 1980s, Murdoch launched Sky TV to break the monopoly of the BBC and ITV. Sky was derided by intellectual snobs as “council-house television”. Building it was a huge struggle but now BSkyB, of which Murdoch’s company owns 39.1 per cent, has 10 million subscribers. Sky News is a constant challenge to the BBC and its conventional, left-of-centre wisdom.”

The brutal explosion of this news and the hysterical evolution on a day by day basis, climaxed yesterday with news that “A former journalist who told the New York Times that phone hacking at Rupert Murdoch’s now defunct News of the World was more extensive than the paper had acknowledged at the time, was found dead.” Unsurprisingly, the police did not hesitate to immediately specify, the death seemed “natural”.

Today, Rupert Murdoch and his son James will be put on the spot by the British Parliament in what has been probably one of the most rapidly set hearings in recent times.

The intricate details of this situation are vastly reported in the media. I will, therefore, analyze another aspect of this sordid story.


The Arab Broadcast Forum, held a couple of times in Abu Dhabi, was a platform to present the progress report made by the media within the Arab Muslim world, and without -I know this because they hired my PR firm. The fora counted not only with Al Jazeera, Dubai 1, the Lebanese Broadcast Corporation (LBC) and other regional outlets, but also with notable Western outfits such as CNN, Bloomberg, BBC, and Fox among others, in their quest to find new markets at a time that Western economies were shrinking by the day. As former Founder and CEO of Benador Associates, I have also worked with all the above mentioned media outfits.

Allow me to backtrack to 2001:

When the massacres of 9/11 happened, in October 2011, a Saudi Prince, Al Waleed Bin Talal, gave Mayor Giuliani a check for 10 million dollars, after a Thursday morning memorial service at Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center towers destroyed in the attacks.

The prince offered his condolences to the people of New York, but after the ceremony he released a statement suggesting the United States "must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack.”

In a memorable response-statement, the Mayor of New York, rebuked the Prince saying: “I entirely reject that statement," Giuliani said. "There is no moral equivalent for this [terrorist] act. There is no justification for it. The people who did it lost any right to ask for justification for it when they slaughtered 4,000 or 5,000 innocent people.” Rudi Giuliani returned the 10 million dollars to the Prince.

WHO is Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal?

Prince Al Waleed is a Saudi Arabian billionaire, member of the Al Saud Royal family. His investments span industries and continents, from the Muslim world to Europe and the United States, he succeeded amassing a fortune through investments in stock market and real estate, from Citibank to Citigroup and Citicorp. He also made large investments on AOL, Apple, Microsoft, and many others -including Murdoch’s NewsCorp, where he initially had acquired 5% of shares, but as of 2010 he’s reported to own 7% of NewsCorp shares.

The Prince owns a diversified global financial investment firm, Kingdom Holding Company, and his net worth by 2011 is 19.6 billion. It’s important to note that he also owns Rotana Media as well as Fox Middle East, and numerous other media outfits.

Fast forward to today.


In his article titled: “Murdoch -you will miss him when he’s gone,” published in The Spectator, July 16, 2011, Shawcross writes: “Beware of what you wish for. If Murdoch’s business is destroyed, the diversity of British media will suffer seriously. Who might gather up the wreckage of the Times? Well, maybe Oleg Deripaska.” Deripaska, born 1968, is the youngest Russian-born oligarch with a net worth of 16.6 billion dollars, in 2011, with a vast amount of investments throughout diverse fields and countries.

However, the one who, in my opinion, would be more prone to gather up wreckage of NewsCorp -especially now that American “justice” has joined the witch-hunt with its arm, the FBI, would be -surprise- none other than H.R.H. Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal Al Saud, the seemingly quiet and silent character in the background of, and yet too close for comfort to, the Murdochs.

Murdoch, the conservative media mogul made a dalliance when he accepted doing business with the man who supports the Imam promoting the next-to-Ground Zero mosque.

Read these from none other than the New York Times: “Remarks by Dan Senor, a former Bush administration official, on Fox News ... In an awkward moment on Fox News this week, a pundit suggested that a member of the Saudi royal family who has supported the bridge-building work of the imam behind a planned Muslim community center and mosque in Lower Manhattan “funds radical madrasas all over the world.” The awkwardness came from the fact — unmentioned by anyone on the Fox set — that the same Saudi, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, also happens to be the second-largest shareholder in News Corp., the parent company of the Fox News Channel.”

How could Murdoch have made such a mistake...? All seems to indicate that the seasoned mogul might have been misled by someone trustworthy, because Prince Al Waleed’s suave manners and elegant custom-made tailored suits are the fanciest shell hiding the underlying essence of creeping, radical Islam in America and the world (yes, the UK included...)

Reports, last Friday, inform that the Prince urged Rebekkah Brooks, Murdoch’s right hand in News of the World, to quit -bold, assertive move from a man who only owns 7% of NewsCorp.

But let’s not forget his words to Giuliani in the aftermath of the 9/11 massacres perpetrated by Muslim terrorists against American innocent civilians in times of peace: “the United States must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack.”

Last May 19, 2011, on Cavuto, the Prince said: “And I think the Netanyahu position today proves conclusively to the world but more importantly to our friends in the United States that the main obstacle to peace is really Israel, not the Arab world.”

Muslims have infiltrated British life at all levels. My personal experience is that even throughout the ranks of the Parliament, there are “friends” galore of the Muslims, including “business” partners.

“Business”, the magic word.

And the situation is similar here in America, where Americans elected President Barack Hussein Obama, a true friend of Islam at the expense even of America’s security and interest, and who has recently instructed his Administration to officially recognize the Muslim Brotherhood -with whom they will soon begin talks on behalf of America.

The Muslim world is filled with intrigue and conspiracy, and students of History know it.

And, why would they be engineering this?

“Maybe” because it’s about time for them to take over our media bastion of conservatism and its founder, the resolute builder of conservative media in the West. That is the challenge and succeeding in overtaking it would be indeed an achievement for the cause of Islam.

In the end, once again, unlimited greed might be the weapon of choice of the enemy.

Murdoch might have not only sold his soul and jeopardized his business and along with it, his children’s inheritance.

But there is way more than that at stake here.

I may be wrong.

But what if I am not?

You may listen to Rabbi Kahane's evergreen "Dear World" please click here

G-d bless Israel and our Allies



Dear World,

I understand that you are upset by us, here in Israel.

Indeed, it appears that you are quite upset, even angry.

Indeed, every few years you seem to become upset by us. Today, it is the "brutal repression of the Palestinians"; yesterday it was Lebanon; before that it was the bombing of the nuclear reactor in Baghdad and the Yom Kippur War and the Sinai campaign. It appears that Jews who triumph and who, therefore, live, upset you most extraordinarily.

Of course, dear world, long before there was an Israel, we - the Jewish people - upset you.

We upset a German people who elected Hitler and upset an Austrian people who cheered his entry into Vienna and we upset a whole slew of Slavic nations - Poles, Slovaks, Lithuanians, Ukrainians, Russians, Hungarians and Romanians. And we go back a long, long way in the history of world upset.

We upset the Cossacks of Chmielnicki who massacred tens of thousands of us in 1648-49; we upset the Crusaders who, on their way to liberate the Holy Land, were so upset at Jews that they slaughtered untold numbers of us.

For centuries, we upset a Roman Catholic Church that did its best to define our relationship through inquisitions, and we upset the arch-enemy of the church, Martin Luther, who, in his call to burn the synagogues and the Jews within them, showed an admirable Christian ecumenical spirit.

And it is because we became so upset over upsetting you, dear world, that we decided to leave you - in a manner of speaking - and establish a Jewish state. The reasoning was that living in close contact with you, as resident-strangers in the various countries that comprise you, we upset you, irritate you and disturb you. What better notion, then, than to leave you (and thus love you)- and have you love us and so, we decided to come home - home to the same land we were driven out 1,900 years earlier by a Roman world that, apparently, we also upset.

Alas, dear world, it appears that you are hard to please.

Having left you and your pogroms and inquisitions and crusades and holocausts, having taken our leave of the general world to live alone in our own little state, we continue to upset you. You are upset that we repress the poor Palestinians. You are deeply angered over the fact that we do not give up the lands of 1967, which are clearly the obstacle to peace in the Middle East.

Moscow is upset and Washington is upset. The "radical" Arabs are upset and the gentle Egyptian moderates are upset.

Well, dear world, consider the reaction of a normal Jew from Israel.

In 1920 and 1921 and 1929, there were no territories of 1967 to impede peace between Jews and Arabs. Indeed, there was no Jewish State to upset anybody. Nevertheless, the same oppressed and repressed Palestinians slaughtered tens of Jews in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Safed and Hebron. Indeed, 67 Jews were slaughtered one day in Hebron in 1929.

Dear world, why did the Arabs - the Palestinians - massacre 67 Jews in one day in 1929? Could it have been their anger over Israeli aggression in 1967? And why were 510 Jewish men, women and children slaughtered in Arab riots between 1936-39? Was it because Arabs were upset over 1967?

And when you, dear world, proposed a UN Partition Plan in 1947 that would have created a "Palestinian State" alongside a tiny Israel and the Arabs cried "no" and went to war and killed 6,000 Jews - was that "upset" caused by the aggression of 1967? And, by the way, dear world, why did we not hear your cry of "upset" then?

The poor Palestinians who today kill Jews with explosives and firebombs and stones are part of the same people who when they had all the territories they now demand be given to them for their state -attempted to drive the Jewish state into the sea. The same twisted faces, the same hate, the same cry of "itbach-al-yahud" (Massacre the Jew!) that we hear and see today, were seen and heard then. The same people, the same dream - destroy Israel. What they failed to do yesterday, they dream of today, but we should not "repress" them.

Dear world, you stood by during the holocaust and you stood by in 1948 as seven states launched a war that the Arab League proudly compared to the Mongol massacres.

You stood by in 1967 as Nasser, wildly cheered by wild mobs in every Arab capital in the world, vowed to drive the Jews into the sea. And you would stand by tomorrow if Israel were facing extinction. And since we know that the Arabs-Palestinians dream daily of that extinction, we will do everything possible to remain alive in our own land. If that bothers you, dear world, well think of how many times in the past you bothered us.

In any event, dear world, if you are bothered by us, here is one Jew in Israel who could not care less.

Rabbi Meir Kahane, OBM, a true patriot, a true Jewish leader... Of Blessed Memory... may the memory of this righteous man inspire us...

I am writing this article in the light of, and under the Protection of, the First Amendment that safeguards my right of freedom of speech in the Republic of the United States of America.

Most of the information below can be verified. Some links are also provided and are verifiable sources. And I also give my personal opinion and draw my conclusions, as such, they may be accurate or not, but they are what I believe conceivable and potentially correct.

Ever since the Anthony Weiner sexting story popped up on our daily news, attention was shifted to the real worrisome factor around the New York Congressman, his wife, Huma Abedin, the daughter of Islamic preachers, in Kalamazoo, Michigan and in Jedda, Saudi Arabia.

Much has been researched, found and written in the interim.

On the one side, interestingly, according to Wikipedia entries, back in “July 29, 2007, Weiner and Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) objected to a $20 billion arms deal that the Bush Administration had negotiated with Saudi Arabia because they do not want to provide "sophisticated weapons to a country that they believe has not done enough to stop terrorism," also noting that 15 of the 19 hijackers of September 11, 2001 were from Saudi Arabia. Weiner made the announcement outside of the Saudi Arabian consulate in Washington, stating that "We need to send a crystal clear message to the Saudi Arabian government that their tacit approval of terrorism can't go unpunished." Weiner and Nadler intended to use a provision of the Arms Export Control Act to review the deal and pass a Joint Resolution of Disapproval. Weiner and several other members of Congress later criticized the Obama administration proposal to sell [the largest sale ever in the History of the United States of] over $60 billion in arms to Saudi Arabia. He said: "Saudi Arabia is not deserving of our aid, and by arming them with advanced American weaponry we are sending the wrong message", and described Saudi Arabia as having a "history of financing terrorism" and teaching "hatred of Christians and Jews" to its schoolchildren.”

So, was it “love” that united pro-Israeli Weiner and Huma with ties-to-radical-Islam? Let’s see beyond that.

Meanwhile, despite mentions by the Free Republic since 2007, that shed light over an infinite amount of facts, showing Anthony Weiner’s wife, close connection to radical Islam represented by a father, Syed Zainul Abedin, was born in India, in 1928. prior to partition, who was an Islamic professor living in Kalamazoo, Michigan and working at Western Universtiy, Michigan.

He got his PhD at the University of Pennsylvania and edited several books, such as “Communal violence in India: a case Study,” “The Muslim Minority in India,” “The future of South Asia,” and the videorecording of “The World of Islam.”

Her mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, who received her PhD in Sociology from the University of Pennsylvania, appears to have served as director and editor of the journal of her husband’s Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs in the UK -where you will find for the first time, Hassan Abedin, allegedly Huma’s brother, and to whom we will return in a couple of paragraphs.

Saleha Mahmood Abedi’s career continued as an associate professor of sociology at Dar Al-Hekma College in Jeddah. Many end of year graduations seem to have been attended by the King, the heir to the throne, and at least one of the King’s wives.

As we mentioned above, Hassan Abedin, is found at the Oxford Center for Islamic Affairs in the United Kingdom, and which you can explore at your leisure.

The Centre was established in 1985 to encourage the scholarly study of Islam and the Islamic world. Patron of the Centre is none other than HRH Prince Charles, The Prince of Wales. One of their most important activities is the Young Muslim Leadership Programme 2011.

It is important to note that “Since 1986, the University of Oxford and the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies have accepted a combined total of more than £105m in donations from sources such as the Saudi royal family, the Malaysian government and even the Bin Laden dynasty, among others. In 1997, the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies received £20m from the now-deceased King Fahd of Saudi Arabia.”

In all of this, the fact that Huma Abedin is the wife Anthony Weiner, is almost irrelevant except for the fact that thankfully it has brought the light to this far more important issue of national interest.

Time Magazine chose her for their "40 Under 40" as part of what they called "a new generation of civic leaders is already at work trying to fix a broken system."

The recent, inexplicable decision of the American Administration to officially recognize the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, it does not erase their vicious agenda promoting the invasion of America and encouraging terror attacks on our soil and our people.

It should be, therefore, at the behest of the American people, as a question of national security and defense, that the Obama Administration must relieve Ms Abedin of her position as trusted Deputy Chief of Staff of the Republic of the United States Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton -with immediate effect.

We learned yesterday via the New York Times, that “Justice Paul G. Feinman of State Supreme Court in Manhattan wrote that Mr. Brown was “an individual with a strong interest in preservation of the building” but added that Mr. Brown lacked any special legal standing on its fate.”

“Mr. Brown” is none other than one of New York City’s Finest, Timothy Brown, a former firefighter who initiated the lawsuit because he was seeking “to reverse the decision by NY City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission denying landmark status to a 150-year-old building that developers want to demolish to make room for the Park 51 community center, which will include a mosque.”

To be precise, the New York Times headline was “Judge Rules Ex-Firefighter Cannot Sue Over Mosque.”

The memory of September 11, 2001, seems to have quickly vanished from the memory of authorities such as New York Mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg.

Gone are the days when, in the aftermath of the tragedy, authorities sided with the victims and not with the perpetrators.

The First Amendment or Amendment I to the United States Constitution “prohibits the making of any law “respecting an establishment of religion,” impeding the free exercise of religion...” The First Amendment -along with the rest of Bill of Rights- was submitted to the states for ratification on September 25, 1789, and adopted on December 15, 1791.

Meanwhile, 210 years have passed, much has changed but not for the better.

Thorough research has shown that the advance of the Muslim religion in America has been silently taking place under specific instructions of Muslim leaders based on their religious book, the Koran -but they have also counted with the tacit support of various American governments most likely bearing in mind their own business interests as their first priority instead of America's.

To review one of the best sources of information on Muslim strategy in America, nothing like being ‘enlightened’ by the propaganda words of Islamist scholar, Shamim Siddiqi: “Methodology of Dawa.” Dawa means propagation of the religion –of Islam. Subtitle is: “Methodology of Dawah IlAllah in American Perspective.”

On his own website, “Dawah in Americas,” Shamim Siddiqi explains:

“Dawah Ilallah is an organized, a determined and a continuous effort to call the people of the land to the fold of their Creator and Sustainer, Allah (SWT), as priority Number One [of the Da'ee], towards accepting Islam as a way of life and convincing them to the need and urgency of establishing the Deen of Allah in the body politics of the country, with the sole objective to get the pleasure of Allah. “

Wherever Muslims invade, they have usually built an imposing Mosque as symbol that they have conquered the local enemy and this might be the reason why they are so keen in building their imposing mosque near Ground Zero.

The following is, to the best of my knowledge and limited to the research I have done, a list of mosques in New York City -some of which, by the way go by their other, less known, name of “masjid:”

That said, while the First Amendment protects religion, Americans have the right to question the wisdom of such provision as one sunny day, in times of peace, New Yorkers were victims of one of the most horrendous massacres in times of peace perpetrated against innocent civilians on that fatal date of September 11, 2001 , as beastly Muslim terrorists crashed two airplanes on two of the most massive buildings of New York’s financial district.

Those terrorists committed those massacres in the name of their religion, while screaming “Allah Hu Aqbar!”

In the light of those events, many concerned Americans have the right to contest the wisdom of Mayor Bloomberg and Judge Feinman, among others, as they choose sides and give the license not only to build a humongous Islamic complex, so called mosque or masjid, that could well promote extremist views against America and Americans -and, yes, endanger our lives.

Back in 1791, when the First Amendment was adopted, little did our forefathers know how History would develop and how progress would go, beyond their wildest imagination.

Something is sure: the men who brought about the First Amendment in its integrity would never have done so if they would have imagined the irresponsible approach taken by our society, that has made acceptable an ugly mood of intolerance that is, to say it mildly, not only blurring our mind, but also undermining our judgement blocking our ability to defend ourselves, our people, our country, against a silent and creepy Islamic invasion of America -with our governments’ tacit help.

BENADOR ASSOCIATES II has been founded on America’s Independence Day, July 4, 2011, with team mates, Rabbi Nachum Shifren, candidate to the Senate of California and Pastor Dr. Terry D. Jones, of Florida, and Goodwill Ambassador Eliana Benador.
Just as its predecessor, Benador Associates II is coming to life when America’s fate is at stake.
At a time when think-tanks, rabbis, priests, and others, want to ‘negotiate’ what’s unnegotiable, the founders of this group, Shifren, Jones and Benador, are upholding the stern principles that will unite them as they will lead the country in its quest for Justice.
Benador Associates II is pleased to announce that today, Wednesday, July 6, 2011, they are hosting their first Townhall Meeting on Twitter, at 2 PM EDT.
The three of them, Shifren, Jones and Benador will personally field questions during one hour.
Their Twitter IDs are: @RabbiShifren @DrTerryDJones and @ElianaBenador.


“If you will not fight for Right
when you can easily win without blood shed;

if you will not fight
when your victory is sure and not too costly;

you may come to the moment
when you will have to fight
with all the odds against you
and only a precarious chance of survival.

There may even be a worse case.

You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory,
because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”

Sir Winston Churchill.

As Benador Associates was being created, the massacres of 9/11 took place. We became the leading neocon group privately owned and most efficient and best known in America and abroad.
Its success was a rare combination of first rate expertise, a daring approach and bold management of the media at the time.
In all, the success was result of been the most genuine platform where voices advocating policies to defend American borders and secure the safety of the American population were to be heard.
As we celebrate today the 235th year of America's Independence, and given the gravity of the situation our country faces, I have decided to create a similar group to the then Benador Associates.
I count with the incomparable confirmed participation of the most conservative Rabbi in America, Nachum Shifrin, candidate to the Senate in California.
We also welcome the courageous Pastor Dr. Terry D. Jones who everyone knows.
The three of us will be the Founders of Benador Associates II.
I am choosing that name because it is a name the liberals recognize well.
It is a name that stands for the Defense of American values.
Right now, at a time when everyone is compromising to accommodate an enemy whose goal is to kill us, none of us is ready to compromise.
And, I believe that this kind of leadership is what has been missing in America.
A rational group, knowledgeable and savvy, fearless and whose main goal is to save America.
Each of us has an impeccable track record.
We are indefatigable.
We know we are at war.
And, now the enemy has a formidable opponent in their face, because we know that we will be able to stir Americans in the right direction.
G-d is with us. G-d save America!


THESE are words to celebrate the joy of being American as we remember that, 235 years ago, The Republic of the United States of America was created the 4th of July 1776.

Receiving a magnificent country as America is a precious gift and a privilege that no American should take for granted.

WHO do we thank in this particular case?

Above all, we must thank G-d Almighty for having allowed that our Founding Fathers proceeded with the establishment of our country, saving her from the claws of the Brits, refusing servitude.

They stood up to oppression; they knew that Freedom was precious enough to risk their lives to fight for it.

After Independence, Americans went ahead and fought for the abolition of slavery which legally had existed for over a century, well before 1776. Slavery in America was abolished in 1865.

In all, our Constitution gave broad rights to American citizens in one of the most complete and complex set of laws the world had thus far.

Let's fast forward to contemporary America.

Though our people fought slavery in the past, as we entered the XXIst century, slavery is a threat still looming upon our lives. The threat, however, is aimed at us, contemporary freedom-loving Americans.

Some may agree that we have forgotten the lessons taught by slavery -and may be prone to not identify it even if it knocks at our doors, when we see a silent invader roaming our streets and we don’t dare call it as it is:

The invasion of America is taking place as we speak, but if we remove those blinders, we can still stop it.

What has happened to our country? How did this situation begin?

It all began when then Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy heavily supported the abolition of the National Origins Formula, in place since the Immigration Act of 1924, to replace it with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

In a flagrant display of nepotism in America, when the three Kennedy brothers took the reins of American politics, immigration reform was a critical issue for the family community of origin: the Irish.

Thus, President John Kennedy; his brother, Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy and their youngest brother, Attorney General Bob Kennedy, feverishly worked to attain the family goal. And attain it they did.

The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, also known as The Hart-Celler act –as per the name of its proponents, US Rep Emanuel Celler of New York and co-sponsor US Senator Philip Hart of Michigan– abandoned the initial structure of American immigration policy from the 1920s and replaced it with a system focusing on immigrants’ skills and family relationships with American citizens or legal residents of the US. It also restricted visas to 170,000 per year –not including immediate relatives of American citizens, and some other exceptions.

As he signed the new legislation into law, October 3rd, 1965, then President Lyndon B. Johnson said that the “[old] system violates the basic principle of American democracy, the principle that values and rewards each man on the basis of his merit as a man. It has been un-American in the highest sense, because it has been untrue to the faith that brought thousands to these shores even before we were a country."

That Act came into effect on July 1, 1968 and along with the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, both are the pillars of America’s current immigration pattern.

Despite assurances by the Kennedys that the immigration reform they were pressing for, would not upset America’s ethnical balance: “It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs…,” it ended up altering the immigration pattern and opening doors to non-European nations, thus changing forever the intrinsic tissue of American society.

As we celebrate America’s Independence Day, it’s noteworthy that the percentage reduction of original American voters, might have been a defining factor in the election of someone like the current president, who among other goals, seems to be keen in opening further our borders to endlessly increasing numbers of immigrants who, regardless of their skin color, are bringing in a whole new texture of culture, 100% foreign to what America’s origins were as its wonderful adventure began back in 1776.

As America celebrates her 235th Independence Day, she finds herself under siege from all kinds of enemies: The known and the unknown; the external and the internal enemy.

The external enemy is that whose goal is to expand so much throughout the world with its most coveted prize: our land.

The internal enemy is represented by generations of leading rulers and classes whose main goal has not been the well-being of America or the improvement of standard of living of Americans but who had in mind, above all, their personal agendas and their own business interests.

One Administration after the other has kept the immigration-invasion under the radar, hiding behind the First Amendment to the Constitution that stands for “freedom of religion” in our country.

However, the First Amendment does not stipulate that “freedom of religion” must be upheld even if the followers of a religion have perpetrated an attack on, and massacred, our civilian population in times of peace, especially if that religion incites to the destruction of our country, our people, and our values.

Republican and Democratic administrations alike are guilty of covering up, not only of allowing, indiscriminate immigration but have become accomplices of supporting and promoting terror inside our borders.

Just as recent as last week, the current president and his administration have officially recognized a terror promoting organization, the Muslim Brotherhood, and have,instead, added our friend and ally, Israel, to the I.C.E. terrorist list -all of the above has also been done relatively under the radar.

Americans have the right to know that there is a deadly threat looming menacingly on their lives as well as the lives of many unborn generations ahead of them.

The enemy has received clear instructions to invade us and overpower us. It is here and it is now.

This is the day, this is the time, when Americans must remove their blinders and look straight in the eyes at the danger in front of them and decide what to do.

It is, after all, America’s Independence Day.

Dear Mr. Prime Minister:

Today, as the world celebrates the 144th anniversary of Canada Day, I want to honor you because thinking of a Statesman of your caliber is for us an emotional moment.

As we, Americans join our cousins, the Canadian people, in the celebration of Canada Day, we want to express our admiration and our devoted friendship and eternal gratitude for standing there, right next to us as we, Americans, walk History through rough and tough.

Reading your bio should be an inspiration for many youngsters all over the world in search of moral guidance and in their quest for personal equilibrium.

You have been instrumental in reshaping Canada's Conservative Movement and Party, and under your leadership, Canada has showed strength in hard decisions and you have led your people, your children, with firm hand.

Canadians know they are safe with you.

One of the litmus tests for any statesman worldwide is their stance on Israel and the Jewish people, on Antisemitism and Zionism -all, the make or break of any politician's image of fortitude.

Reading the speech you gave at a conference on combating Antisemitism, in Ottawa, Ontario, November 2008, one cannot but admire the unshakable understanding you have of what's right and what's wrong.

Three years have gone by since then, and the unimaginable has happened.

The United States of America, whose Jewish population was the next strongest in any country in the world besides Israel, is moving in a diametrically opposite direction as we, Americans, look with dismay and horror at our leadership taking us through dangerous paths of a totally uncharted territory in our History.

Your words should serve us as consolation and inspiration to overcome our present situation:

"Remembering the Holocaust is not merely an act of historical recognition. It must also be an understanding and an undertaking. An understanding that the same threats exist today. And an undertaking of a solemn responsibility to fight those threats.

Jews today in many parts of the world and many different settings are increasingly subjected to vandalism, threats, slurs, and just plain, old-fashioned lies.

Let me draw your attention to some particularly disturbing trends.

Anti-Semitism has gained a place at our universities, where at times it is not the mob who are removed, but the Jewish students under attack. And, under the shadow of a hateful ideology with global ambitions, one which targets the Jewish homeland as a scapegoat, Jews are savagely attacked around the world – such as, most appallingly, in Mumbai in 2008.

We have seen all this before. And we have no excuse to be complacent. In fact we have a duty to take action. And for all of us, that starts at home.

In Canada, we have taken a number of steps to assess and combat anti-Semitism in our own country. But of course we must also combat anti-Semitism beyond our borders, - an evolving, global phenomenon. And we must recognize, that while its substance is as crude as ever, its method is now more sophisticated.

Harnessing disparate anti-Semitic, anti-American and anti-Western ideologies, it targets the Jewish people by targeting the Jewish homeland, Israel, as the source of injustice and conflict in the world, and uses, perversely, the language of human rights to do so.

We must be relentless in exposing this new anti-Semitism for what it is. Of course, like any country, Israel may be subjected to fair criticism. And like any free country, Israel subjects itself to such criticism – healthy, necessary, democratic debate."

And you went on to say this memorable, Historic words:

"And I know, by the way, because I have the bruises to show for it, that whether it is at the United Nations or any other international forum, the easiest thing to do is simply to just get along and go along with this anti-Israel rhetoric, to pretend it is just about being even-handed, and to excuse oneself with the label of honest broker.

"There are, after all, a lot more votes—a lot more—in being anti-Israeli than in taking a stand. But as long as I am prime minister, whether it is at the United Nations, the Francophonie or anywhere else, Canada will take that stand, whatever the cost."

Thus, Mr. Prime Minister, I take my heart in my hands to thank you more than any word could tell, as an American patriot and political commentator, as a committed Jew, a lover of Judaism and of Israel, the mother of a volunteer IDF soldier, for your steadfast commitment in support of Israel and the Jewish people.

May you always be an inspiration for leaders worldwide and may G-d continue blessing you as you take Canada to greatest spheres of History.

This is G-d's Blessing for Leaders: חזק וברוך‎ HAZAK U BARUCH


G-d bless Canada!

After all, the Anthony Weiner indiscretion which allowed Americans to peek into Pandora's box and unveil his wife Huma Abedin's connections to radical Islam, the Saudi royal family as well as the Muslim Brotherhood AND Sisterhood, colliding with her position as Hillary Clinton's right hand at State Department, may have precipitated a swift move by the Obama Administration to reach out to Islamist movements.

This is a total abandonment of policies that have for decades shown a commonality of purpose with Israel by which we managed to distance ourselves from the root causes and places of origin of unabashed world terrorism. This is a flagrant and unmistakable gesture of hostility of this Administration to the Jewish people and Israel.

Obama, Hillary Clinton and the Administration as well as the democrats and GOP senators, have now no excuse to have done or to approve this daring short circuit.

If the American people have until now put blinders, this time they will be forced to see that our government has no moral judgement anymore to distinguish between right and wrong, as they ally with violent pro-jihad movements.

To be clear, a "religious political movement" does not exist. As soon as a religion dictates political military aggression, that movement enters the category of violent political ideology.

In the case of Islam, their pursuit to establish a world caliphate mandates their indoctrinated terrorists to spread suffering and horror throughout the world, and that's to whom the Obama Administration is right now extending the friendly American hand.

And, in Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton's words: "It is in the interests of the United States to engage with all parties that are peaceful and committed to nonviolence."

Naturally, the extraordinary timing seems like stabbing a dagger in the back of our constant ally, Israel, especially at a time when flotillas are headed to try to break the security measures imposed by Israel in the light of the animosity emanating from the surrounding violent Muslim world in the Middle East.

The newly mouthpiece of Saudi prince Al-Waleed bin Talal, the Wall Street Journal, speaks of "The Arab Spring revolts have loosed a democratic wave the U.S. both favors and fears," despite the fact that the Muslim world cannot but turn towards Islamism and its radical views, just as the Muslim Brotherhood continues promoting their views of violence and animosity.

U.S. Reaches Out to Islamist Parties
Public, Private Warming Seen Toward Egypt and Tunisia Groups

Wall Street Journal, July 1st 2011

The Obama administration is reaching out to Islamist movements whose political power is on the rise in the wake of Arab Spring uprisings across the Middle East and North Africa.

The tentative outreach effort to key religious political groups—the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Ennahdha in Tunisia—reflects the administration's realization that the spread of democracy in the region requires it to deal more directly with Islamist movements the U.S. had long kept at arm's length.

Brotherhood members at new Cairo headquarters in April.

Speaking to reporters during a visit Thursday to Budapest, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the Obama administration is now seeking "limited contacts" with Muslim Brotherhood members ahead of parliamentary and presidential elections slated for later this year.

"It is in the interests of the United States to engage with all parties that are peaceful and committed to nonviolence," Mrs. Clinton said. "We welcome, therefore, dialogue with those Muslim Brotherhood members who wish to talk with us."

The Obama administration has been more aggressive in courting Ennahdha, Tunisia's most-prominent Islamist party, hosting party leaders for a visit to Washington where they met with State Department officials and lawmakers, including Sen. John McCain, the 2008 Republican presidential candidate.

The Arab Spring revolts have loosed a democratic wave the U.S. both favors and fears. The Obama administration believes the spread of democracy will, over the long term, increase stability in a volatile region. But it also worries the popular backlash to decades of repression by Washington-backed dictators could usher to power Islamist groups hostile to U.S. interests.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in Hungary on Thursday, said she would seek 'limited contacts' with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood.

The new overtures in Egypt and Tunisia reflect the administration's concern that if it waits too long, it will miss a window of opportunity to build relationships, and gain leverage, with the next generation of regional leaders. Should it fail to do so now, administration officials say, the U.S. risks pushing moderate Islamists further from the West and closer to those such as Hamas in the Palestinian territories, Hezbollah in Lebanon and the anti-American regime in Iran.

"This was the only thing the U.S. could do," Shadi Hamid, an Egypt analyst for the Washington-based Brookings Institution, said of the outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood.

A senior Obama administration official said Muslim Brotherhood members would also be eligible to participate along with other Egyptian parties, if they choose, in U.S. taxpayer-funded political-party training seminars. The official said the Brotherhood hasn't so far shown much interest in taking part.

The U.S. decision to approach both Egyptian and Tunisian Islamists reflects the strong possibility that their parties will play a prominent role after elections are held in both countries. Secular parties appear to be struggling to organize themselves, even though secularists prompted the popular uprisings.

The Obama administration plans to treat parties in different countries in different ways, depending on the degree to which they are open to the West and disavow violence. The outreach to the Egyptians is far less enthusiastic than Washington's wooing of the Tunisians.

Though Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has long since renounced violence, it is a lightning rod of controversy on Capitol Hill and in Israel. Hamas is the Palestinian chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Egyptian Ayman al Zawahiri, who became leader of al Qaeda after Osama bin Laden's death in May, is a former Muslim Brotherhood member.

The group has a huge ideological and organizational footprint across the world, with chapters and affiliates in about 70 countries, some of which have a history of violence. The U.S. has had contacts with the group's offshoots in Jordan, Indonesia and elsewhere.

Tunisia's Islamists are going to pains to portray themselves as moderate and responsible international interlocutors. Since the fall of longtime dictator Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali in January, Ennahdha has sought contact with the West, vowed to respect women's rights and promised not to impose religious law if it comes to power in elections.

In May, with help from the U.S. embassy in Tunis, Ennahdha party leaders quietly visited Washington for talks at the State Department and with congressional leaders, including Sen. McCain of Arizona, according to organizers. U.S. officials described the visit as an opportunity to build bridges with a moderate Islamist party that could serve as a model for groups in other countries in the region.

"Sen. McCain believes that Islamist parties are now a part of the political process in Tunisia and Egypt, and they should judged by their actions," said the senator's spokeswoman.

Hamadi Jebali, Ennahdha's secretary-general, said in an interview that he assured U.S. officials and lawmakers that his party wouldn't impose its religious beliefs on more-secular Tunisians. "We told the Americans that we are a civil, not a religious, party," Mr. Jebali said. "Islamic parties are evolving, both in the Maghreb and elsewhere."

According to secret diplomatic cables obtained by the organization WikiLeaks, U.S. diplomats met with Mr. Jebali at his home in the coastal city of Sousse in August 2006 soon after he was released from prison. Jailed for more than a decade by the Ben Ali regime for his alleged participation in what the government of Tunisia described as an "attempted overthrow" of the government and for other alleged crimes, Mr. Jebali told American diplomats at the time that the group had a "non-violent philosophy" and wanted to be "a part of the dialogue" in Tunisia.

In Egypt, before a street-level uprising toppled President Hosni Mubarak in February, U.S. contacts with the 83-year-old Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood were infrequent and limited to members of parliament affiliated with the group. The Egyptian government banned the organization in 1954 because of its suspected role in an assassination attempt on the Egyptian president, so Muslim Brotherhood parliamentary candidates had to run for parliament as independents.

U.S. officials say Mr. Mubarak, long a close American ally in the turbulent Middle East, had objected to previous U.S. efforts to reach out to the Muslim Brotherhood.

When President Barack Obama delivered a speech to the Muslim world in 2009, as many as 10 Brotherhood members were allowed to attend at the U.S. embassy's invitation, said Mr. Hamid, the Brookings Institution analyst.

Muslim Brotherhood officials cautiously welcomed the American overture, but remained bitter about the long U.S. alliance with Mr. Mubarak, a despised figure amongst Islamists and other opposition groups.

"It's nice that the Americans admit to recognizing the actual political map of Egypt and are dealing with it," said Mohamed Al Biltagy, a prominent member of the group's parliamentary bloc until Brotherhood members were swept from Egypt's legislature last November in allegedly fraudulent elections. "When we sit on the dialogue table we will discuss why the [Egyptian] people hate the American administration. It's because of the Americans' support for oppressive regimes, on top of which was the regime of Hosni Mubarak."

U.S. officials played down the implications of the administration's decision to renew contacts with the Muslim Brotherhood, and said any exchanges would likely be held at a lower-level at first, reflecting concerns in Congress and the Pentagon about taking any steps that could boost the group's political standing.

One official said the goal of engaging with Brotherhood contacts was to identify emerging leaders, learn about the party's positions and to make clear what Washington expects "a pluralistic, democratic country should look like."

Mrs. Clinton said U.S. diplomats who meet with Muslim Brotherhood members will "emphasize the importance of and support for democratic principles, and especially a commitment to nonviolence, respect for minority rights and the full inclusion of women in any democracy."
