Bush Says Wiretapping Is Legal, Addresses Hamas

President Bush on Thursday said Hamas must renounce violence and halt its calls for the destruction of Israel if it wants to be a peaceful political party, while on a more domestic front, he vowed to continue the use of his controversial wiretap program at home.

"We've got much work to do to protect the nation ... I'm going to do everything in my authority to protect the American people," Bush said during his opening remarks of a press conference in the Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House.

The Palestinian militant group Hamas won a huge majority in parliamentary elections Wednesday as Palestinian voters rejected the longtime rule of the Fatah Party, throwing the future of Mideast peacemaking into question. While he didn't completely rule out working with the new government, Bush said the United States will not deal with a political party whose platform includes violence and the destruction of Israel.

"I don't see how you can be a partner in peace when you advocate the destruction of a country on your platform" or when a party has an armed wing, Bush said. "We will watch very carefully about the formation of the government, but I will continue to remind people about what I just said: If your platform is the destruction of Israel, that means you're not interested in peace."

Bush also addressed the National Security Agency program to conduct warrantless electronic surveillance against some people inside the United States communicating with suspected Al Qaeda-linked individuals overseas. That program, which Bush authorized after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, has come under fire recently from Democrats who say Bush overstepped his legal bounds.

"'Circumventing' Is a Loaded Word"

The administration has gone on an offensive push for the so-called "terror surveillance program" in recent days, saying it has proved to be a vital tool in the War on Terror, particularly since the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that usually authorizes wiretap warrants is outdated.

Administration officials argue that they must know what sort of communication is going on between potential sleeper cells inside the United States and their overseas contacts who may someday order an attack. Bush repeatedly stressed this week that a system of checks and balances is built into the program and that instances have been documented of the program infringing on civil liberties.

"The terrorist surveillance program is necessary to protect America from attack," Bush said, noting that he double-checked the legality and efficacy of the program with lawyers and NSA operators before it was launched.

"There's no doubt in my mind it is legal … there's no doubt in my mind there's safeguards in place to make sure the program focuses on calls coming from outside the United States with the belief there's someone related to Al Qaeda making the call to the United States ... but not domestic calls," Bush explained. "We will not listen inside this country."

He said Congress doesn't need to pass a law giving him authority to conduct such operations; the administration argues that the program is already legal under the Constitution and that Congress gave Bush the power to order such actions in a congressional resolution passed after the Sept. 11 attacks. The American people will understand that rationale, he said, and Congress will continue to be briefed on aspects of the program.

"But it's important for people to understand this program is so sensitive and so important, that if information gets out about how we do it or how we run it or how we operate, it will help the enemy," he said. "I think the American people understand that. Why tell the enemy what we're doing if the program is designed to protect us from the enemy?"

Bush also took issue with people saying he circumvented the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which calls for the warrants to be approved by the FISA Court.

"It's like saying 'you're breaking the law' and I'm not, that's what you've got to understand. I'm upholding my duty," Bush said. "'Circumventing' is a loaded word, and I refuse to accept it because I believe what I'm doing is legally right."

He said legal experts thought today's surveillance could not be successful if operated under 1978 rules. "We're having this discussion in 2006. It's a different world and FISA's still an important tool," the president added.

Bush: Mideast Peace is Not Dead

The president said he will continue to push what he called an "optimistic agenda" to promote democracy and freedom throughout the world.

On the issue of Hamas' victory this week, Bush said while it's a good sign voters turned out to express dissatisfaction with the current political regime, the party must denounce violence and destruction in order to further the Mideast peace process.

"Peace is not dead, people want peace," Bush said, again stressing his support for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. He said the results of the election "remind me of the power of democracy ... it provides a look into society."

While Bush said it was a positive sign the elections were peaceful, "what's also positive is it's a wakeup call to the leadership."

"Obviously, people were not happy with the status quo," he continued, referring to the Fatah Party, many members of which are holdovers from the days of the late PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat.

"People are demanding honest government, the people want services, they want to be able to raise their children in an environment in which they can get a decent education and they can find health care. So the elections should open the eyes of the old guard there in the Palestinian territories. I like the competition of ideas."

Bush also called on the Senate to quickly confirm Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court.

"He understands the role of the judge is to interpret the law, he understands the role of a judge is not to advance a political agenda," Bush said of Alito. "He's a decent man who has a lot of experience and he deserves an up-or-down vote on the floor of the United States Senate."

The Senate is expected to vote on Alito's nomination this week. Although Democrats have not completely ruled out the option of a filibuster to prevent a vote, that procedural move is not likely.

Bush was also asked why he would not allow pictures to be released of himself and disgraced lobbyist Jack Abramoff. The president has said he doesn't recall personally meeting Abramoff. The White House has not released details of any meetings between Abramoff and Bush, or between the lobbyist and senior-level staffers.

Both Washingtonian and Time magazines have reported the existence of about a half-dozen photos showing the two together.

"I've had my picture taken with a lot of people ... having my picture taken doesn't mean I'm friends with them," Bush responded Thursday. "I can't say I didn't have a meeting, but I meet a lot of people."

Bush said he tries not to meet with lobbyists, but couldn't say for sure that he has never met with one. But the ongoing investigation into Abramoff and his dealings with Congress should be probed, he said. Many lawmakers have called for ethics reform in Washington in the wake of the Abramoff scandal.

"There is a serious investigation going on, as there should be," the president said. "The American people have got to have confidence in the ethics of all branches of government."

Bush was also asked about the validity of recent news reports that the CIA was using the practice of rendition to send terror suspects to overseas countries to be tortured as part of the war on terrorism. Also making headlines lately is the possibility that the CIA operated secret prisons in various countries overseas.

"I haven’t seen that report, but if they're saying we tortured people, they're wrong," Bush responded, adding that he strongly supports the amendment by Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., which prohibits the use of torture by the U.S. government. "No American will be allowed to torture anyone."

Not facing another re-election campaign himself, Bush said he was ready to hit the campaign trail one more time in support of Republican congressional candidates this year. "We've got a record and a good one, and that's what I intend to campaign on," Bush said.

The president defended the administration's level of cooperation with congressional investigations into the pace of the government's response to Hurricane Katrina, saying the White House has provided thousands of documents

Senators leading the investigation say staffers at the White House and other federal agencies have refused to be interviewed and that other officials won't clearly answer questions about times and dates of meetings and telephone calls with the White House.

Bush said that allowing all staffers to be interviewed would have a "chilling effect" on the ability of presidential advisers to speak freely.

He also shrugged off a recent Pentagon report that said the Army was overextended and the United States cannot sustain the pace of troop deployments to Iraq. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on Wednesday denied that the Army was stretched too thin.

"Our commanders will have the troops necessary" to win a victory in Iraq, Bush said, adding that the military is transforming itself to meet its goals in the 21st century. "After five years of war, there is a need to make sure troops are balanced properly, threats are met with capabilities. That's why we're transforming the military."

Bush also touched on some themes that will be heard in his State of the Union address on Tuesday. White House officials said the president has been going through that speech and practicing key phrases in preparation for Tuesday's address.

Thursday marked Bush's 22nd solo news conference since taking office. The last one took place on Dec. 19 in the East Room of the White House. Bush opened that press conference with statement on the Iraqi elections, USA Patriot Act and surveillance activities.

Israel Defends Hamas Strike Despite Bush's Reprimand
Published June 11, 2003

Despite a sharp reprimand from President Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon (search) remained unapologetic Wednesday about the botched assassination attempt on Hamas (search) co-founder Abdel Aziz Rantisi (search).

According to Sharon, Israel will "continue to fight the heads of the extremist terrorist organizations -- those who initiate, those who fund and those who send terrorists to kill Jews."

Bush criticized Israel on Tuesday, saying the attack disrupted the path to peace in the Mideast, and also made it harder for Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas to fight terrorism.

The missile strike jeopardized the so-called "road map," a U.S.-backed peace plan for Mideast peace and a Palestinian statehood by 2005. Bush has invested his presidential prestige in the initiative, formally launching it with Sharon and Abbas at a summit last week in the Jordanian resort of Aqaba.

Hamas opposes the peace plan. Last week, Hamas broke off talks with Abbas on laying down arms and, along with two other militias, killed five soldiers in shooting attacks over the weekend. After Tuesday's missile strike, Hamas threatened bloody revenge. The group has already killed hundreds of Israelis in recent years.

Abbas denounced the missile strike as terrorism, appealed to the United States to intervene, and said he would keep trying to reach an understanding with Hamas and other militias. Abbas opposes the idea of a crackdown on the armed group, saying there is no substitute for dialogue and that he will not risk a civil war.

On Wednesday, Egyptian intelligence chief Omar Suleiman arrived in the West Bank town of Ramallah for another attempt to negotiate a truce, despite the remote chances of success. The Egyptians have tried in recent months to persuade Hamas and other militias to halt attacks on Israelis, but have been rebuffed.

After the Rantisi attack, anger in Hamas was running high, and it appeared unlikely the militant group would agree to a cease-fire.

Suleiman met with Abbas and veteran Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat, and it was not clear whether he would also hold talks with Hamas leaders in Gaza. Officials in Suleiman's delegation said the intelligence chief was also trying to sort out differences between Abbas and Arafat on security issues.

Abbas has been unequivocal in his condemnation of violence against Israel, while Arafat has been much more ambiguous and stands accused by Israel and the United States of involvement in terrorism.

Arafat called Rantisi after the missile strike and congratulated him on surviving a "criminal assassination attempt," the Palestinian news agency Wafa reported.

The militants have been seeking a guarantee from Israel that it will halt targeted killings of terror suspects and incursions into Palestinian areas, a promise Sharon has been unwilling to make. The road map does not specifically forbid such strikes, though Israel is asked to avoid actions that undermine trust.

Sharon on Wednesday was quoted as saying that he would not wait for Abbas to reach an agreement with Hamas. "If the Palestinian Authority does not perform its duties, we will do so instead," Sharon told the Yediot Ahronot daily.

In an apparent reference to Washington's criticism, Sharon also said the United States was aware from the start that Israel would not halt its fight against militants.

Earlier, White House spokesman Ari Fleischer had said Bush was "deeply concerned" that the assassination attempt "will undermine efforts by Palestinian authorities and others to bring an end to terrorist attacks, and does not contribute to the security of Israel."

The strike against Rantisi was widely criticized in Israel, including by politicians who generally support targeted killings; Israel has carried out dozens of such attacks in the past 32 months in its campaign to prevent bombings and shootings.

"I think it was a mistake," said former Prime Minister Shimon Peres of the opposition Labor Party. "The problem is not how to fight terror. We have been doing that for three years. The issue is how to let this new thing (the road map) be born despite the difficult labor pains."

Israeli helicopter gunships fired seven missiles at Rantisi's convoy as it drove along a crowded Gaza City thoroughfare. One missile hit the front of a Mitsubishi Pajero with Rantisi, his son Ahmed and a bodyguard inside. Rantisi jumped out, suffering shrapnel wounds in his leg and chest. The rest of the missiles turned the vehicle into a mass of twisted, smoking wreckage.

The bodyguard was killed along with a bystander, and Rantisi's son, the driver, was seriously wounded. An 8-year-old girl who was critically wounded remained on life support Wednesday. Two dozen bystanders were also hurt.

Several hours after the strike, Hamas activists fired mortars and homemade rockets at Israel, causing no injuries or damage. At one point, Israeli troops spotted two cars carrying Hamas activists driving away from rocket launching sites.

Helicopters joined the chase through the town of Jabaliya in northern Gaza. One car got away, and passengers abandoned the second vehicle, taking cover in a residential area. Helicopters fired two rockets toward the car, and tanks fired shells.

In all, three Palestinians were killed and 33 wounded by the Israeli fire. The three dead were bystanders, ages 19 and 16, doctors said. Among the wounded were several Hamas activists but also 15 children under the age of 15, doctors said. Six of the wounded were in critical condition Wednesday, including two minors.

At Gaza's Shifa Hospital, after fellow Hamas leader Mahmoud Zahar, a surgeon, treated his wounds, Rantisi warned of bloody revenge.

"I swear we will not leave one Jew in Palestine," he said. "We will fight them with all our might." Hamas has carried out dozens of homicide bomb attacks in Israel, killing more than 300.

choose chooseAbdel Aziz Ali Abdul Majid al-Rantisi (23 October 1947 – 17 April 2004), nicknamed the "Lion of Palestine",was the co-founder of the Palestinian movement Hamas along with Sheikh Ahmed Yassin.

Rantisi was Hamas's political leader and spokesman in the Gaza Strip following the Israeli killing of Hamas spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in March 2004.[3] Rantisi opposed compromise with Israel and called for the creation of a Palestinian state (including the whole of the State of Israel) through military action against the Jewish state.

On 17 April 2004, the Israeli Air Force killed al-Rantisi by firing Hellfire missiles from an AH-64 Apache helicopter at his car

Stephens, vice president of the Confederacy, said the Southern states would fight to keep “the negro” in “his place” in a hard to misread statement on the day the Civil War began:

Many governments have been founded upon the principle of the subordination and serfdom of certain classes of the same race; such were and are in violation of the laws of nature. Our system commits no such violation of nature’s laws. With us, all of the white race, however high or low, rich or poor, are equal in the eye of the law. Not so with the negro. Subordination is his place. He, by nature, or by the curse against Canaan, is fitted for that condition which he occupies in our system. The architect, in the construction of buildings, lays the foundation with the proper material the granite; then comes the brick or the marble. The substratum of our society is made of the material fitted by nature for it, and by experience we know that it is best, not only for the superior, but for the inferior race, that it should be so. It is, indeed, in conformity with the ordinance of the Creator. It is not for us to inquire into the wisdom of His ordinances, or to question them. For His own purposes, He has made one race to differ from another, as He has made “one star to differ from another star in glory. The great objects of humanity are best attained when there is conformity to His laws and decrees, in the formation of governments as well as in all things else. Our confederacy is founded upon principles in strict conformity with these laws.
Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, cited slavery as the reason for going to war in 1861 and rallied in its defense until his death in 1889. His take on the Emancipation Proclamation, reiterated in his memoirs, is quite telling:
A proclamation, dated on January 1, 1863, signed and issued by the President of the United States, orders and declares all slaves within ten of the States of the Confederacy to be free, except such as are found in certain districts now occupied in part by the armed forces of the enemy. We may well leave it to the instinct of that common humanity, which a beneficent Creator has implanted in the breasts of our fellow men of all countries, to pass judgment on a measure by which several millions of human beings of an inferior race peaceful, contented laborers in their sphere are doomed to extermination, while at the same time they are encouraged to a general assassination of their masters by the insidious recommendation "to abstain from violence, unless in necessary self-defense."

"As a result, the later Reconstruction Amendments (Thirteenth, Fourteenth and Fifteenth) would not have been permissible, as they abolish or interfere with the domestic institution of the states.A competing theory, however, suggests that a later amendment conflicting with an already ratified Corwin Amendment could either explicitly repeal the Corwin Amendment (as the Twenty first Amendment explicitly repealed the Eighteenth Amendment) or be inferred to have partially or completely repealed any conflicting provisions of an alreadyadopted Corwin Amendment."The expression "labour institutions" doesnt mean slavery

On average, the Nordic countries outperform the Anglo-Saxon ones on most measures of economic performance. Poverty rates are much lower there, and national income per working-age population is on average higher. Unemployment rates are roughly the same in both groups, just slightly higher in the Nordic countries. The budget situation is stronger in the Nordic group, with larger surpluses as a share of GDP.

1) Ukraine is independent since 1991 and they want to stay this way, they want freedom, democracy, civilzation and progress
Obama: Russia is on 'wrong side of history'
2) If they love Russia go back to Russia, cross the border
Crimea was never part of Russia, but was only invaded by Russia again and again. Crimea was never Russian. It belonged to many people including the Byzantine Greeks, Goths and even the Mongols.
Crimea was never Russian and should never be. It was the Tatars that were there before Russia was even a country
Russia has no right to annex Crimea over and over again
It was occupied by Russia in 1857. Crimea belonged to Turkey once and the majority of population are turkish.Crimea belonged to Turkey. It was ethnically cleansed by Russians during the 1700 1800 and 1900's and Crimea was never a real part of Russia.. England and France defeated Russia in 1855.

3) Afghanistan are commemorating the 1992 toppling of the Soviet backed regime by the mujahedin.. USSR killed thousands in Ukraine.

6) The distribution of people who are Ukrainian and Tartars is 55 % versus 45% Russians. The only reason this election was a success due to Putin's armed thugs and intimidation tactics. This is an invasion of sovereignty of Ukraine. Thugs on the Streets for Crimea's Referendum. There is a difference between the Georgian military and the Ukranian military. The Ukranian military essentially disarmed for security guarantees. Total nonsensical rubbish. Bush didn't do anything, far less were "your" troops involved. And Russia successfully macerated a whole chunk of Georgia and annexed two of its provinces. Total victory for Fuhrer Putin.
7) Russia was built by Ukraine. History of Ukraine
 8) They said good bye to Russia. The Mujahedin, for example, defeated Russia / USSR. If they love Russia cross the border. The people of Ukraine hate Russia because Stalin killed thousands in Ukraine.

Human settlement in Ukraine and its vicinity dates back to 32,000 BC, with evidence of the Gravettian culture in the Crimean Mountains By 4,500 BC, the Neolithic CucuteniTrypillian Culture flourished in a wide area that included parts of modern Ukraine including Trypillia and the entire Dnieper
Dniester region.

10) During the Iron Age, the land was inhabited by Cimmerians, Scythians, and Sarmatians. Between 700 BC and 200 BC it was part of the Scythian Kingdom, or Scythia.

Later, colonies of Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome and the Byzantine Empire, such as Tyras, Olbia and Hermonassa, were founded, beginning in the 6th century BC, on the northeastern shore of the Black Sea, and thrived well into the 6th century AD. The Goths stayed in the area but came under the sway of the Huns from the 370s AD. In the 7th century AD, the territory of eastern Ukraine was the centre of Old Great Bulgaria. At the end of the century, the majority of Bulgar tribes migrated in different directions, and the Khazars took over much of the land.

11) Golden Age of Kiev : Kievan Rus' was the first slavic civilization or state
The baptism of the Grand Prince Vladimir led to the adoption of Christianity in Kievan Rus'.
Kievan Rus' was founded by the Rus' people, Varangians who first settled around Ladoga and Novgorod, then gradually moved southward eventually reaching Kiev about 880. Kievan Rus' included the western part of modern Ukraine, Belarus, with larger part of it situated on the territory of modern Russia. According to the Primary Chronicle the Rus' elite initially consisted of Varangians from Scandinavia.
During the 10th and 11th centuries, it became the largest and most powerful state in Europe. In the following centuries, it laid the foundation for the national identity of Ukrainians and Russians. Kiev, the capital of modern Ukraine, became the most important city of the Rus'.
The Varangians later assimilated into the local Slavic population and became part of the Rus' first dynasty, the Rurik Dynasty.

12) The Principality of Moscow stole the name Russia
13) After Rus Kievian, Ukraine belonged to Poland and Lithuania

Our system commits no such violation of nature’s laws. With us, all of the white race, however high or low, rich or poor, are equal in the eye of the law. Not so with the negro.

Our confederacy is founded upon principles in strict conformity with these laws.

The Great Mufti of Jerusalem had nothing to do with the Holocaust
1) Zionists introduced terrorism in the region in the 30 s, Group Irgun and Group Heli aka Gang Stern, a Nazi organization
Irgun killed 250 people in 60 attempts, between 1936 -1948. Gang Stern killed hundreds of Britsh troops, they loved Hitler and
Nazism. Scumbags like Menahen Begin, I Shamir, Moshe Dyan, Sharon, B Netanyahu are war criminals, baby killer.
2) Israel was founded by brutal terrorists
3) Hitler was always against jews, judaism, jewish people in Germany and Europe in general, since 1918
Stalin killed thousands of jews, in 1500 the king of Portugal and Spain deported thousands
Zionists declared war on Germany in 1938
Hitler gave this idea to the Great Mufti, final solution was proposed by Hitler months before, a long European tradition. Jesus came to alleviate suffering not increase it. When we learn the Word the following comes into play. Hebrews 12:711   Jesus came to alleviate, to lift off, to release. He came to give life and hope and health and blessing Jesus came to alleviate man's ills. He lived, died, and rose again so that we could be free from sin, sickness, and lack.

Clearly, the Grand Mufti, a famous anti-semite, suggested exterminating the Jews, indeed that seems to have been his life mission. But we all know that of the two Hitler was far better at exterminating.  Hitler killed the Jews, Poles, Ukrainians, Russians by the millions and all the others, combined are far greater in numbers than the Jews. So, Hitler was an expert at extermination and did not need the encouragement of the Grand Mufti.

Argument
A Lesson for Netanyahu from a Real Holocaust Historian

Bibi's self-serving, Palestinian-blaming version of Nazi history is just plain wrong.

A Lesson for Netanyahu from a Real Holocaust Historian

In recent decades, public consciousness of the Holocaust has increased exponentially. One unfortunate by-product of this otherwise salutary development has been the increased temptation for politicians to exploit references to Hitler, Nazism, and the Holocaust to stigmatize their opponents. Political exploitation of the Holocaust says much about the people who do it and their agendas, but very little about historical reality.

In one recent case, brain surgeon-turned-Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson alleged that without the Nazi gun law of 1938, German Jews would have been able to offer meaningful resistance against the Holocaust. This ignored the simple fact that the well-armed Polish and French armies were unable to resist German power. But moreover, it is absurd to think that a few more pistols or hunting guns in the hands of German Jews — by then a population predominately old and female — would have changed their fate.

As of this week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has undertaken an even more blatantly mendacious attempt to exploit the Holocaust politically. In a speech to the World Jewish Congress, Netanyahu claimed that at the time of the meeting between Hitler and Haj Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, on Nov. 28, 1941, the former was still in favor of expelling Jews and the latter opposed this because the expelled Jews would come to Palestine. Instead, according to Netanyahu’s version of history, the mufti urged Hitler to “burn” them, thus becoming the prime instigator of the Final Solution. The Netanyahu account of this meeting is an historical fabrication, or more simply a lie.

Hitler had opted for the total and systematic killing of Jews on Soviet territory in mid-July 1941, and German killing units on the eastern front began targeting the entire Jewish population — including women, children, and the elderly — beginning in late July and early August. The two-day massacre of over 33,000 Jews at Babi Yar outside Kiev took place in late September. Hitler approved the extension of the mass murder program to Jews west of Soviet territory in late October, and two death camps using poison gas were under construction at Belzec and Chelmno by early November. When Hitler met with Husseini, the fateful shift in Nazi Jewish policy from expulsion and decimation to systematic and total mass murder had already occurred.

There’s plenty more evidence contradicting Netanyahu’s account. Hitler’s interpreter, Paul Schmidt, recorded the meeting with the mufti, and his memorandum of the meeting has long been available in the official publication of German foreign-policy documents. According to Schmidt, it was Hitler who assured the mufti that he had no territorial ambitions in the Middle East. Germans would come as liberators: “Germany’s objective would then be solely the destruction of the Jewish element residing in the Arab sphere under the protection of British power.” Hitler conveniently and deceptively did not tell the Husseini that he deferred to Italy’s Benito Mussolini concerning the final disposition of Arab-populated territories in the Mediterranean region. As Hitler had done with Ukrainians, Lithuanians, Latvians, and others, he seemed to be playing upon the wishful thinking of the grand mufti, trying to give the impression that if Arabs helped in the murder of Jews, this would facilitate their own national independence. Husseini, rather, was not the instigator of the Final Solution but rather the target of Hitler’s attempted manipulations.

Netanyahu’s latest lie is part of a persistent campaign to portray the grand mufti as a major Holocaust perpetrator. It’s not true. During the 1930s, the Nazis ignored him entirely, as they gave priority to the emigration of German Jews to Palestine over the objections of Husseini or concerns about the Palestinians. During the war, the mufti was a useful but minor collaborator in disseminating Nazi propaganda in the Arab world. Late in the war, when he was no longer of any use, some in the Nazi regime wanted to cut off the subsidy that the mufti’s entourage in Berlin had been receiving for years. They were deterred from that by a Foreign Office expert who advised that open disregard of their Arab ally would signal defeatism by acknowledging that Germany had given up any hope of affecting Middle Eastern affairs.

There were many thousands of Holocaust perpetrators more historically significant than the grand mufti of Jerusalem, but for Netanyahu they have no useful political significance — which is to say they were not Palestinian. His extraordinary exaggeration of Husseini’s complicity, and by implication that of the entire Palestinian people, is a blatant attempt to stigmatize and delegitimize any sympathy or concern for Palestinian rights and statehood. Netanyahu’s shameful and indecent speech is a disservice to anyone — Jew and non-Jew — for whom research, teaching, and preservation of the historical truth of the Holocaust has value, meaning, and purpose.

In terms of making a mountain out of a molehill, Mr. Browning has just made another molehill. The remarks by Netanyahu were  off-the-cuff so I guess the main element of the response is that yesterday was a slow news day.


Clearly, the Grand Mufti, a famous anti-semite, suggested exterminating the Jews, indeed that seems to have been his life mission. But we all know that of the two Hitler was far better at exterminating.  Hitler killed the Jews, Poles, Ukrainians, Russians by the millions and all the others, combined are far greater in numbers than the Jews. So, Hitler was an expert at extermination and did not need the encouragement of the Grand Mufti.

Don't miss the narrative:  Hitler was bad, but the Mufti made him worse. So the Mufti's descendants, who just so happen to be infesting  Eretz Yisroel must pay the price for his crimes.  By refusing to just 'go away' they make themselves second class people. By attacking Jews, like the Mufti did,  they make themselves the target for even greater punishment.  They refuse to 'live in peace' and therefore bring constant war down upon themselves.  One day they will 'wake up' in another land.

I would have to say that Bibi has erred in his assertion that it took encouragement from a Muslim leader in order for Hitler and the Nazi party to be convinced that killing rather than expelling all European Jews was the way forward.  However, two points.  From this web site:

http://www.ushmm.org/outreach/en/article.php?ModuleId=10007704

This quote: "The origin of the "Final Solution," the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jewish people, remains uncertain. What is clear is that the genocide of the Jews was the culmination of a decade of Nazi policy, under the rule of Adolf Hitler. The "Final Solution" was implemented in stages. After the Nazi party rise to power, state-enforced racism resulted in anti-Jewish legislation, boycotts, "Aryanization," and finally the "Night of Broken Glass" pogrom, all of which aimed to remove the Jews from German society. After the beginning of World War II, anti-Jewish policy evolved into a comprehensive plan to concentrate and eventually annihilate European Jewry."

Second, I have read this book:

 http://www.amazon.com/Icon-Evil-Hitlers-Mufti-Radical/dp/B002RAR266/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1445562264&sr=1-1


And a more odious and evil man in this "Mufti" you can only look to Hitler to be more horrible.  However, I think that it is amply known by historical records that Hitler and the Nazi's needed no direction or encouragement from ANY religious leader when it came to their long term plans of genocide.  The Mufti did not play a meaningful role in creating the Shoah.  That doesn't mean that he wasn't evil and that his influence all these years later is still not felt.  It is felt, though one has to wonder what was going through that odious mans mind when Arafat took a tour of the Yad Vashem Museum, many years ago?

Bibi was wrong and has only embarrassed himself.  People around the world do not need more reminders that the religious and political leaders in Iran are crafted out of the Mufti's dark side.  Same for Hamas and Hezbollah and ISIS.  We all know this.

This article is a joke.  Certainly Hitler had already decided to commit genocide when the met Haj Amin al-Husseini but the latter was a huge fan boy and supported of killing all the Jews as well.  His statements before and after the meeting prove this.  The wikipedia article provides both sides of this debate.

Indeed. It's a proud day for Academia when an argument by a historian - emeritus professor and much published author, no less - is so convincingly demolished by Wikipedia. Fair enough, too: no self-respecting propagandist would ever allow facts to stand in the way of an opportunity to accuse Netanyahu of something or another. Rebuttals are water off a duck's back, but flung mud tends to stick.

In the meantime, the current Grand Mufti, Sheikh Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, continues the proud tradition (http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=974).

He calls for murder of all Jews, endorses 'martyrs' and - having been  'beseeched to disavow the Temple Mount strife', praises Palestinians for 'preventing Jews from defiling Al-Aqsa'. His calls are heeded: Palestinians duly burn Joseph's Tomb and start murdering Jews in the streets; Mahmud Abbas addresses UN; UNESCO votes to declare the Cave of Patriarchs and Rachel's Tomb to be Islamic holy sites. Jews are duly blamed.

Would have been amusing if it was not so desperately sad...

Articles like this reminds me of why I stopped supporting and subscribing to FP. The cold, hard fact of the matter is that Palestinians primary goal is to kill Jews and actively seek for the destruction of the Israeli state. It is the reason for their existence - and ultimately death. They day the Palestinians decide to join the rest of the civilized world and accept the existence of the Israeli state and peace with the Jews is the day the Palestinians will see prosperity and growth. At this point I am not holding my breath...

@amezer They certainly have made a hash of that often enough to have learned that it's counter-productive. Nu?


German version of Hitler's opus stated clearly he was after the Poles. His plan was genocide of the Poles. Once in Eastern Europe he discovered the large Jewish population. Some Jews now act like Nazi and commit genocide. Netanyahu is a war criminal, not to be trusted.


@Anise Hitler hated Bolsheviks for causing Germany to lose WWI and, to him, Jews were Bolsheviks. It wasn't their relgion that he hated, but their politics. Himmler was the one who wanted Poles exterminated; initially just the educated elite, then everyone. I'm not sure where his hate came from but, again, Polish Jews were killed because of their social and political class, not their religion. In 1933, Hitler actually made an agreement with the Zionists to help them move to Palestine and start a Jewish State, in order to end the global boycott of Nazi Germany, so the Jews weren't above dancing with the devil to get what they wanted.

This story will feel familiar to Americans.

A young, idealistic, inexperienced liberal rides a wave of hope and change all the way up the polls and in to the halls of power. He seems genuinely embarrassed by the last guy’s conduct in office  at least in the realm of foreign affairs. Seeing his predecessor exercise hard power on the world stage, he ascribes to him not merely imprudence, but a disregard for the nation’s best traditions of global conduct. The credentials the new leader brings to the job are specious at best. But under the surface and in between the gaffes that emerging leaders are wont to make, is the outline of a new statesman, or at least the possibility of one.

Yes, nearly seven years after Obama came to power, Canada is following America’s liberal lead in foreign affairs. On Oct. 19, Canada’s center-left Liberal party, led by 43-year-old Justin Trudeau from Quebec, surged from the ruins of its disastrous 2011 election showing to earn a majority of Canada’s federal parliamentary seats in the nation’s longest campaign since 1872. With an iron grip on the legislature and a clear mandate from Canadian voters, Trudeau, the eldest son of former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau — whose liberal legacy still looms large in Canada  is on track to be appointed Canada’s 23rd prime minister and form a government. In doing so, he’ll pick up where the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper left off after nearly a decade in office, departing from his predecessor in rhetorical nuance but building on the Conservative’s strong record on global affairs and economic management.

Under Harper, Canada’s foreign policy adopted a harsh tone, putting a greater emphasis on hard power over soft power and elevating economic diplomacy and free trade to the top of the agenda. At times, this was unpopular. But by and large, it was a success.

Canada’s economy arguably fared best among G7 nations during and after the great recession, due partially to Harper’s support for the nation’s huge energy sector. Under Conservative rule, Canada was deemed the second-best country in the world to do business owing in part to the Tories’ low-tax agenda. And in addition to maintaining one of the strongest financial sectors in the world, Harper enhanced Canada’s global economic engagement with a succession of new trade deals. (Some of them — like the Canada-European Union trade agreement and the Trans-Pacific Partnership — are still in pre-implementation phases.) Though Harper has been the object of unusual animus from his own country’s elites and his domestic political opponents for “staining” Canada’s international good name, in 2015 the Reputation Institute reported that Canada is the most admired country in the world.

This might be why, despite some heated and substantive exchanges between Harper and Trudeau during an election debate focused on foreign affairs, there is actually significant overlap between the two leaders in terms of substance, if not style. Both advocate for strong bilateral ties with the United States and both believe the Keystone XL pipeline should be part of that relationship. Both leaders are free traders — Trudeau all but came out in favor of the TPP as the Harper administration negotiated it. Both, in wildly different ways, believe humanitarian considerations should animate Canadian foreign policy, whether through Harper’s maternal health initiatives or, for Trudeau, through enhanced development goals.

Where Trudeau and Harper have most differed is in the use of military force, or hard power, in pursuit of Canada’s interests and values. In particular, the two leaders squared off on Canada’s role in the fight against the Islamic State.

On March 30, the Conservative government used its majority in the House to approve an expanded Canadian combat mission against the Islamic State, as part of the U.S.-led coalition effort. Soon after, Royal Canadian Air Force fighter jets were authorized to attack the terrorists not only in Iraq, but also in Syria, to prevent the latter from becoming a “safe haven” for terror, according to Harper.

Trudeau’s parliamentary address before the mission extension vote was credible and balanced in its tone. While his comments are not always so mature  he’s stumbled by jokingly praising China’s authoritarianism and accusing Harper of chronically “whipping out our CF-18s [fighter jets] to show how big they are”  his parliamentary comments on the Iraq-Syria mission expansion conveyed a serious, if perhaps idealistic, view of international law and global affairs. He laid out the conditions under which the Liberals would support military missions. (As of last night, according to Agence France-Presse, Trudeau has already notified President Obama that he’s withdrawing Canadian air power from the fight in Iraq and Syria, though Canadian trainers will likely remain in northern Iraq.)

Trudeau’s four “core principles” on military deployments should provide some insight into his approach once he fully takes the reins of power.

Per his statement on the vote:

    –One, Canada has a role to play in confronting humanitarian crises in the world.

    –Two, when a government considers deploying our men and women in uniform, there must be a clear mission and a clear role for Canada.

    –Three, that the case for deploying [Canadian] forces must be made openly and transparently, based on clear and reliable, dispassionately presented facts.

    –Four, Canada’s role must reflect the broad scope of Canadian capabilities and how best we can help.

Placing humanitarian considerations at the top of the decision tree is notable — Trudeau has relentlessly slammed Harper on his predecessor’s management of the Syrian refugee crisis, calling for a much more ambitious Canadian response than the tentative, security-focused measures Harper authorized. Trudeau is justified in including mission clarity and reliable intelligence among his party’s conditions, since those factors should be table stakes for any discussion of military action anyway. The final factor, that Canadian missions need to best reflect the resources at the nation’s disposal, is the most politically fraught for a leader who has consistently taken a softer line on security issues than his predecessor. To advocates of a foreign policy rooted in hard power, it will look like an escape clause to potentially undermine any military action under any circumstances. After all, determining how “best we can help” will never be a merely utilitarian judgment in practice, but a political one. Until Trudeau grows into the role of prime minister and builds fluency in military affairs, he will need to remain on guard against that potential criticism from Conservatives.

To establish early credibility and his own foreign policy bona fides with Canadians and his global peers, though, Trudeau may choose not to play to the Conservatives’ strength on military issues. The decision to quit the airstrike campaign suggests as much. If the rookie PM can seize two upcoming diplomatic opportunities in particular, he could make serious progress tilting Canada back toward the peaceful, multilateralist power of his vision.

As fellow Canadian Geoff Dembicki argued in Foreign Policy earlier this month, Canada has an opportunity to shift the global dialogue on climate policy at December’s Paris summit. Politically, ushering in global policy progress at the summit could be a big, quick win for the new leader. The logic goes that Canada, as an advanced industrial economy with capacity for more ambitious climate action than it’s shown to date, is giving fossil fuel-dependent emerging economies an excuse to lag on climate control policies. By bringing Trudeau’s progressive environmental views to bear at the Paris summit, Canada could affect a tectonic shift in global climate politics.

Second, the United States recently achieved a diplomatic breakthrough to put peacekeeping back on the global agenda. Through intense lobbying, the Obama administration secured broad-based international support to enhance U.N. member states’ support for peacekeeping efforts by providing more troops and materiel. That’s music to Trudeau’s ears.

Canada is one of the principal architects of peacekeeping. Trudeau’s father, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, took over as prime minister from Nobel Peace Prize winner Lester B. Pearson, who helped broker a solution to the Suez Crisis in 1956. From then on, Canada’s global brand  and the Liberal party’s conception of Canada’s role in the world  became deeply intertwined with the concept of peacekeeping. This new U.S.-led effort could give Canada a high profile international role that, in Trudeau’s view, “must reflect the broad scope of Canadian capabilities and how best we can help.”

By picking up the mantle of global leadership on these issues, while also building on his predecessor’s achievements on free trade, Trudeau could get a fast start on foreign affairs and fashion a global role for himself and for Canada that fits with his values and his party’s historic strengths.

And he wouldn’t even have to whip out his CF-18s.
