ONE MORE REFERENCE SHOWING THE NAZI & WHITE SUPREMACIST SUPPORT FOR RON PAUL

Ken Berwitz

Did you ever hear of someone named jamie kelso?  According to wikipedia (and they are right about this)......

Jamie Kelso (June 8, 1948) is a senior moderator of the American White Nationalist website Stormfront and a senior aide to both Don Black and David Duke. He hosts a nightly webradio program seven days a week on Stormfront Radio..

How much does jamie kelso like ron paul?  And how much does he hate Jews?  Here's a way to find out.  Listen to his own broadcast and hear it in his own words, at http://www.stormfront.org/audio/stormfront_radio-jamie_kelso-response_to_medved-10-29-07.mp3.

For the first couple of minutes, kelso actually sounds normal.  He speaks in measured tones, he talks engagingly.  Then he goes into an increasingly loud, increasingly hate-filled rant that you will absolutely not believe. 

This particular broadcast is about Michael Medved's open letter to ron paul, which challenges paul to disassociate himself from the nazis and White supremacists who cling to him like barnacles to a rotting pier. kelso takes great exception to Mr. Medved's challenge. 

Here are just a couple of examples of his commentary for you (listen to it and get the rest first-hand, if you have the stomach):.

At about the 9:40 mark:  "we'll think our White thoughts and you think you're Jewish thoughts...don't you give orders to ron paul or any other White politician or White patriot...."

At about the 12:35 mark:  "he's (Medved's) starting to call ron paul names, and I'm fed up with his Jewish bullshit" .

In the last several days I have posted several blogs which demonstrate why subhumans of this kind would support ron paul.  I urge you to scroll back, read them, and click on every link so that you know they are for real. 

Then I urge you to know just what ron paul is -- not the media invention he has inexplicably become.

It has been said that a person can be judged by the company he/she keeps.  Think about it.


OK, OK, ONE MORE ON RON PAUL

Ken Berwitz

This is reprinted verbatim from something called www.muslimsvoteronpaul.com.  The bold print is theirs, not mine.  Make of it what you will:.

In the spin room after the Republican debate on Tuesday evening in Dearborn, Mich., a reporter from the Arab-American News asked Ron Paul what he thought of the term Islamic fascism.

Its a false term to make people think were fighting Hitler, Paul responded. Its war propaganda designed to generate fear so that the war has to be spread.

Why should YOU vote for Ron Paul?

Assalaamu Alaikum Brothers and Sisters,

You can help by sharing and sending this note to all the Muslims you know as well as by registering as a Republican and voting for Ron Paul in the Republican primaries in your state. Here's why: Muslims and Americans have an unique window of opportunity for the 2008 election. There is a candidate running as a Republican that would work to completely cut off the funding to Israel, remove ALL US troops from Arab lands, and repeal the Patriot Act. He's a Republican with Libertarian views named Ron Paul. Ron Paul's policies ranging from monetary to foreign are top notch.

Till now Muslims and Americans have not had an American Presidential candidate that really suited their best interests. This election is unique in that we have a man running as a Republican that speaks the truth. Much of the our foreign policy in the Middle East has been influenced heavily by AIPAC, the pro-Israeli lobby, to the detriment of Muslims in the Middle East. As American Muslims, we are blessed to live in the US where we have the freedom to let our policymakers know how we feel about foreign policy; we may not have the power of an influential lobby but we do have the right to vote and every single vote counts. We know the current policies in the Middle East are failing, not only making it less safe in the world but hurting and killing innocent Muslims, which our media callously calls collateral damage. It is our duty as Muslims to follow the truth regardless of how futile it may seem. Ron Paul is the only candidate that does not seem to be swayed by the influential lobbies that the other candidates are catering to.

If you'd like to read some of his quotes, I've pasted them below. You can also find his speeches on YouTube here. Remember, the top-tier candidates OBAMA, HILLARY, GIULIANI, EDWARDS, ROMNEY, and MCCAIN are PRO-ISRAEL, PRO-NUKES and PRO-PREEMPTIVE WAR. DO NOT VOTE FOR THEM. They will not help us.

Brothers and Sisters, please vote for Ron Paul in the Republican Primaries. It's our obligation to come together and try to stand up for not only our best interests, but the best interests of the entire Ummah. Living here in the West, we are obligated to do so. Otherwise, we are partly to blame for all the actions our government takes in our name.

American Muslims must RISE and UNITE. Let your voice be heard. InshAllah (God-willing), we can spread the word and make a difference.

_________________________________________________________

Ron Paul was one of the very few politicians who voted and spoke against the war in Iraq from the very outset:

"I rise to urge the Congress to think twice before thrusting this nation into a war without merit- one fraught with the danger of escalating into something no American will be pleased with." - Ron Paul, September 2002

During a debate in May 2007, Ron Paul was asked if non-interventionist tendencies in American foreign policy changed after September 11th. This is how he replied:

Ron Paul: "Have you ever read about the reasons they attacked us? They attack us because we've been over there- we've been bombing Iraq for 10 years. We've been in the Middle East - I think Reagan was right. We don't understand the irrationality of Middle Eastern politics. So right now we're building an embassy in Iraq that's bigger than the Vatican. We're building 14 permanent bases. What would we say here if China was doing this in our country or in the Gulf of Mexico? We would be objecting. We need to look at what we do from the perspective of what would happen if somebody else did it to us."

Moderator: "Are you suggesting we invited the 9/11 attack, sir?"

Ron Paul: "I'm suggesting that we listen to the people who attacked us and the reason they did it, and they are delighted that we're over there because Osama bin Laden has said, 'I am glad you're over on our sand because we can target you so much easier." They have already now since that time have killed 3,400 of our men, and I don't think it was necessary. I believe very sincerely that the CIA is correct when they teach and talk about blowback. When we went into Iran in 1953 and installed the Shah- yes, there was blowback. The reaction to that was the taking of our hostages. And that persists, and if we ignore that, we ignore it at our own risk. If we think we can do what we want around the world and not incite hatred, then we have a problem. They don't come here to attack us because we're rich and we're free, they come here to attack us because we're over there."

The Palestine-Israel conflict has gone on and on and virtually no progress has been made. Meanwhile, billions of dollars are sent to Israel every year and more and more innocent Palestinians are killed. Ron Paul stood up in Congress in 2006 and opposed a resolution that sided with Israel in the Lebanon-Israel conflict. He stated the following,

Ron Paul: "Mr. Speaker, I follow a policy in foreign affairs called non-interventionism. I do not believe we are making the United States more secure when we involve ourselves in conflicts overseas. The Constitution really doesn't authorize us to be the policemen of the world, much less to favor one side over another in foreign conflicts. It is very clear, reading this resolution objectively, that all the terrorists are on one side and all the victims and the innocents are on the other side. I find this unfair, particularly considering the significantly higher number of civilian casualties among Lebanese civilians. I would rather advocate neutrality rather than picking sides, which is what this resolution does."

Ron Paul has already sponsored a bill to overturn the Patriot Act, which, as originally proposed, sanctions the unregulated use of wiretaps and random searches sans warrants, the monitoring of private internet usage, and many other civil liberty infringements. He is one of the few members of Congress from either of the major houses that is speaking rationally about these issues.

RACISM: OVERT AND UGLY

Ken Berwitz

In recent years I have had a number of people tell me that racism no longer exists in the USA.  I keep telling them they're dead wrong and that racism is pervasive here.  I tell them that it is not so much that there is racism in our country, but that there is racism in our world and we are part of that world.

I am proud to live in a country that provides more redress for victims of racism than just about any other place on earth.  But that doesn't mean it isn't here, it means that people who have been subjected to racism in the USA have legal recourse.

Yesterday I posted a story about a Black woman who was fired from her job at Georgia-Pacific.  The woman, Lisa Woods, had complained that a toilet near one of its scaling stops for truckers had an "out of order" sign for months, but White truckers were told they could use it.  Obviously, this was an underhanded way of creating a "Whites Only" toilet.

The article was posted on the website of a local TV station, after its news anchor, Jeannie Blaylock, investigated and found that the toilet was in normal working order - which would certainly buttress Ms. Wood's accusation. 

The result?  Ms. Woods was fired in a matter of hours.

Does this have every indication of being a racist incident?  Of course it does.  So I decided to put a paragraph of my blog into the report's "comments" section.  Here are my exact words:.

If there is more to the story, let's hear it from Georgia Pacific, and fast. Because if they can't come up with anything other than "we dispute all of her allegations. We will vigorously defend our position" they come across as stone cold racists, who are abetting and protecting a stone cold racist and punishing a Black woman for noticing his stone cold racism.

I fully expected to see a torrent of similar postings in the "comments" forum.  And I did see some.  But I want to show you some of the other comments that were put up - with apologies for their vile, disgusting content:.

Jeannie, what are you doing? This is a case of a malingering sloth looking for a payday and you've turned two states upside down. What if there are sudden riots and people killed due to your irresponsible journalism. Report only the truth. Do not make reckless allegations as headlines you idiot.

just more agitation by people who want something for nothing.

give her another welfare check and some stamps and she will not be heard from anymore TRUTH!!!!

This black broad just stinks. The toilet isn't open for you- too bad. You had to piss in the woods and this guy is out of a job- and you still want to sue?

Simple solution...
avoid hiring black employees

i like peters idea of not hiring! then they can all join their bros in the hood!

Can't you all see what the issue really is? If you were a nice group of people and did not rob, rape, or kill indiscriminately we would welcome you as we do the asian, east european, or indian races. It's your BEHAVIOR, not your skin color. You blacks are 12% of the population and 40% of the prison population!

Until you have more blacks in college than in prison, don't expect respect from the people who built this country!!

I do not see what is wrong with the companies providing rest rooms for White people, but they should be required to provide some for the "Blacks" as well.

Don't bother me none..... mmmmhmmm

The the crime rate(murder rate) 51% committed by 12%(Blacks) of the population, and you people wonder why they're racist?
As a friends mother said to her daughter, who sounded like alot of you clueless people, "You live among them(blacks) and see if you don't become racist.

If you don't like it here, go back to Africa. Your forefathers got a free boat ride to the best country in the world. Stop complaining for once.

Wow! A Lawsuit! What a surprise! At least the jews and blacks can get together on something! CALL AL SHARPTON, QUICK!!!! WA WA WA,CRYBABY BLACKS

First words out of any black person's mouth at the welfare, teen mother, unemployment or social security disability office: "GIMME MY MONEY" GIMME GIMME GIMME

Dis woman be discrimanate agint. Rev Jesse an Al set dem honkys strate.

Great, we need more separation...Yeah,,

I'za suppose deeze black peoples is perfectly politically correct iffem see racism in dezze signs: "Do Not Enter", "Vending Machine is Broken", "Toilet is Out of Order", "Stay off the Grass", "High Voltage".   Lordy only knows when one gets pulled over driving drunk, 95 in a 25 zone, they automatically scream racist pig to the police.
 
It's about time someone had the audacity to put these nasty nappyheads in their place. I just got back from Atlanta and I can confirm southern blacks are indeed niglets .
 
What you have just seen is a small sampling of the "wit and wisdom" of these commenters.  There is plenty more.  you can find it yourself at http://www.topix.net/forum/source/wtlv/TK4299LIH10CDPVTR/p11
 
The next time some well-meaning but terribly naive person tells me how racism no longer exists in this country, I think I'll direct him/her to the above sampling.  I can only hope it acts as a re-educational device.


CATTLE CALL: A HILLARY RETROSPECTIVE

Ken Berwitz

While we're on the subject of the "spontaneous" questions to Hillary Clinton which were, in reality, planted by her staff......

....let's refresh our memories as to just how dishonest and fraudulent Ms. Clinton's cattle futures windfall was, back when her husband was running for Governor.  It comes courtesy of the invaluable website, www.sweetness-light.com, and was drawn from Barbara Olsen's Book, "Hell To Pay". 

Let's also remember that Barbara Olsen perished on 9/11, when terrorists expropriated the plane she was on and crashed it into the Pentagon.  This is a plane that the so-called "truthers" (talk about inappropriate nicknames) tell you was never there:.

Lest We Forget - Hillarys $100K Cattle Futures

November 10th, 2007

From Barbara Olsons tremendous book, Hell To Pay, pp 138-144:

CATTLE QUEEN OF ARKANSAS

The market was going up dramatically at that time, Vice President Al Gore said in loyal defense of the Clintons when Hillarys neat little cattle futures profit came to light. That time was October 11, 1979, three weeks before Bill Clinton was elected governor of Arkansas. Ten months later, Hillary Rodham Clinton and Governor Clinton made $100,000 in profit on a $1,000 investment. Eat your heart out Bill Gates.

When the story broke of how lawyer and commodities trader Jim Blair helped Hillary Rodham make a fortune in cattle futures, the first response of the White House was to react with feigned indignance.

Hillary and Jim were friends; he gave her advice, said aide John Podesta, later to become White House chief of staff. There was no impropriety. The only appearance is being created by the New York Times. Consider the chutzpah of that defense. The mean old New York Times making up nasty things about Hillary Clinton.

Do they have to go weed their friends out and say they can only have friends who are sweeping the streets? Podesta asked rhetorically, without a hint of the embarrassment he must have felt in making such an absurd statement. They have friends who are high-powered lawyers. They have friends who write books, who write poetry.35

In other words, what should we expect among members of the meritocracy? How unfair to deny the Clintons the friendship of poets and commodities traders.

Jim Blair was certainly no street sweeper. He had made millions of dollars himself trading in commodities. The White House could only defend Hillary by adopting an Arkansas perspective on the whole deal. In the end what did it matter if Blair helped a friend make a little of her own?

The story intensified in April 1994, when the first couple was forced to pay an additional $14,615 in back taxes and interest after it was learned that the first lady had made more money on commodity trades than had been revealed to the public or to the IRS.36

After trying to hold back the details of the deal, the White House released the facts one by one.

At first, we were told that Hillary consulted with numerous people, and did her own research, an aide to the first lady explained.37 The American people were left with the image of Hillary, shrewd investor, thumbing through the Wall Street Journal.

Then the White House acknowledged that she had indeed received a small helping of advice, but not on a specific date or specific trade.

The White House next conceded that Jim BlairSpringdale lawyer, former Fulbright aide, major figure in the Arkansas Democratic party, and the man Bill Clinton later married to Diane Kincaidwas one of several people who had given Hillary some advice in dealing with the market. When that story would no longer hold, Dee Dee Myersalways one of the most forthright, and therefore routinely humiliated, members of the Clinton teamsaid, bluntly, I think its become clear that [James Blair] placed most of the trades.38 But surely he had been guided by the Wall Street Journal.

Blair, of course, also worked for Tyson Foods, the poultry giant and largest employer in Arkansas, and a major Clinton donor. He bought land and made deals on behalf of the corporate giant. He would later become the companys general counsel.

The company is run by Big Daddy Don Tysona man who wears a khaki uniform, which is required of all employees, with his name stitched on its breast; a political kingpin; a wheeler-dealer and corporate egoist. In keeping with his oversized persona, and perhaps the helping hand his general counsel gave to the president-to-be, Tysons office is a replica of the Oval Office.

It would be irresponsible to my company and my industry if I didnt have any influence, Tyson said in a speech in Alabama. Clinton understands the needs of business. There were several times in our companys growth that we could have taken opportunities outside of the state, but we chose to stay in Arkansas because he understands the balance between economic development and environmental issues.39

Hillarys cattle futures were purchased through Robert L. Red Bone of the brokerage firm of Refco, Inc. It was Jim Blair who had put her in touch with Bonewho had previously worked for Tyson for more than a decade. Bone was an inveterate gambler, a high-profile, high-stakes poker player well known to the pit bosses of Las Vegas. He was a gambler at the office as well. The year before, Bones sharp practices had led the Chicago Mercantile Exchange to accuse him of allocating trades to investors after determining the winners and losers, a practice known as straddling. Bone was punished by having his license to trade pulled for one year.40

The deal was arranged in the following way. All Hillary had to do was put $1,000 of her own money into a block of cattle futures at a time when her husband, then the attorney general, had a thirty point lead for the governorship. How did Hillary make out?

From her initial investment of $1,000, she came away with $99,537. Among the community of experts, there is general agreement that between 75 percent and 90 percent of commodity players lose. And no one turns $1,000 into $100,000. The average retail customer has about as much chance of that kind of success as I have of driving to Hawaii, one Chicago-based investment advisor noted.41

At one point in the trading, Hillary was $60,000 in the hole, with less than $40,000 in her account. Typically, an investor would be asked to pay the margin. Hillary was not, and she held on to the commodities until she hit pay dirt. (Later, the White House would explain that she quit at that point because she was pregnant with Chelsea, and just did not need the additional stress of investing.)

On July 12, 1979, Hillarys relationship with Refco remained intact even though she owed more than $100,000; but poor Stanley Greenwood, a fellow Refco investor, had his investments terminated when he failed to post $50,000 to cover his losses.42

By way of comparison, had Hillary instead invested $1,000 in the first offering of Microsoft stock in 1986, she would have made $35,839 by March 1994. The premier technology investment of our times, therefore, pales in comparison to what she had made on the worlds oldest commodity: livestock. Hillarys cattle future investment gave her a 9,987 percent profit.43 Later, when asked of her incredible success as a novice in the tough world of commodities trading, Hillary denied any preferential treatment with the illuminating statement: I was lucky.

Unless you believe in good fairies, luck had nothing to do with it. It is pretty obvious that Hillary had something better than luck. She had well-placed friends who wanted her to have $100,000. The likelihood of such a return on such an investment was close to lottery odds, twenty-four chances in a million.44 This was in a decade in which no speculator made more than $400 profit a day with one contract of cattle futures. Yet Hillary managed to make $5,300 a day. Such a return would have required her holding thirteen contracts, involving 232 tons of beef with a value of $280,000.

The New York Post explained, There is no way that the commodity exchange or a broker would permit a novice speculator to control $280,000 worth of cattle with a skimpy investment of $1,000. Not, that is, unless a friend, guardian or partner guaranteed her investment.45

It seems unlikely that Hillary could have been unaware of the magnitude of this straddle or that her wins were at the expense of others. (Blair himself was a designated loser, losing millions on the cattle deals.) Many commodities traders suspected Hillary of allocated tradingan illegal procedure in which a broker buys block trades, waits for the win, then allocates it to favored customers after the fact. Just a few months after Hillarys lucky day in commodities trading, Refcospecifically Hillarys broker Red Bonewas disciplined by the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Board for serious and repeated violations of record-keeping functions, order-entry procedures, margin requirements and hedge procedures.

One person who has done well during the Clinton years is the man who provided the nexus between Red Bone, Jim Blair, and Bill Clinton. That man is Don Tyson. During the Clinton-era, Tysons company benefited from millions of dollars in state loans, tax breaks, and the relaxation of environmental regulations. He received $8 million in tax concessions for plant and workforce concessions, as well as $900,000 in state grant monies to build roads and upgrade sites for a $40 million processing plant in Pine Bluff.46 What was especially extraordinary was the kid glove treatment Tyson received from a governor who at least affected a tough and uncompromising stance on protecting the environment.

Before Clinton was elected, the state had reissued a license for a Tyson plant with the proviso that the company had to work out a plan with Green Forest city officials to treat its wastes, tons of chicken feces that the plant dumped into nearby Dry Creek. With Clinton in office, it soon became clear that nothing would have to be done to clean up the plant and save the river. Unfortunately, the runoff of chicken feces ultimately filtered into the town drinking water, sickening local residents and forcing Governor Clinton to declare the locality a disaster area.47

Tyson was not only an overt financial contributor to the Clintons. As reported by Time magazine in 1994, allegations of envelopes of cash coming from Tysons headquarters to the Clintons in the governors mansion had surfaced by Independent Counsel Donald Smaltz. These allegations were never pursued, however, because Smaltzs request to widen his probe was shot down by Attorney General Janet Reno.

However murky the background, what is clear is that Hillary and her husband did quite well during their personal decade of greed. But one could not say that they were entirely uncharitable. Journalist Lisa Schiffren learned that Hillary donated to the less fortunate. Dozens of bags of old clothing she, Chelsea, and Bill had worn were given to charity, and Hillary valued these donations between $1,000 and $2,300 each year for tax deductions. She meticulously listed each item, and gave a value for them, including $10 for Bills old running shoes and $1 for each pair of Bills and Chelseas old underwear.

Its also nice to be reminded how the Clintons allowed Tysons to rape the Arkansas environment in return for their little favors.

And how Al Gore defended them.

Good times!.

A point of order:  This fraud occurred five years after George Bush left the National Guard. 

Throughout President Bush's entire political career and right up to the end of the 2004 presidential campaign (right, Dan?) media spent countless hours trying to find proof that he may have missed a few National Guard meetings, apropos of nothing.

Well, here we have the favorite to win both the Democratic nomination and the 2008 presidency, caught red-handed in an overt fraud in which she and Bill benefitted by almost $100,000.  And the guy whose people helped her do it was generously rewarded afterwards by her husband, the Governor.

Are media ever going to be talking about this?  Or is it another case of Heroine Hillary getting a free pass that no one else would ever get?

So far, the answer is 100% obvious.  Count on the mainstream media to keep it that way. 

Then listen to them squeal like stuck pigs if someone accuses them of bias.

 


R.I.P. NORMAN MAILER

Ken Berwitz

Norman Mailer died this morning.

Mailer was a great writer; a Pulitzer Prize winner when it actually meant something.

He was also a serial husband (six wives), a drunk, often violent and abusive, as well as being a former candidate for Mayor of New York City (an independent, like William F. Buckley who ran that year too).

His politics certainly were not very similar to mine.  Nor was his writing talent - my best day is less than one of his bad ones.

If it is possible for such a turbulent man, may he rest in peace.


THE HILLARY PLANT

Ken Berwitz

They skewered President Bush over Jeff Gannon's intentionally supportive questions - and should have.

They skewered Homeland Security over the phony news conference last month - and should have.

So what will they do with this?.

Clinton Campaign Confirms Planting Town Hall Question, Says It Won't Happen Again

Saturday , November 10, 2007

By Major Garrett

SIOUX CITY, Iowa  

Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clintons campaign admitted Friday that it planted a global warming question in Newton, Iowa, Tuesday during a town hall meeting to discuss clean energy.

Clinton campaign spokesman Mo Elliethee admitted that the campaign had planted the question and said it would not happen again.

"On this occasion a member of our staff did discuss a possible question about Senator Clinton's energy plan at a forum, Elliethee said.

However, Senator Clinton did not know which questioners she was calling on during the event. This is not standard policy and will not be repeated again.

In a state where the caucus is held sacred and the impromptu and candid style of the town hall meeting is held dear, Clintons planted question may come as a great offense to Iowans.

According to a report on the Grinnell University Web site, the Clinton campaign arranged for some of the questions for the candidate to be asked by college students:

"On Tuesday Nov. 6, the Clinton campaign stopped at a biodiesel plant in Newton as part of a weeklong series of events to introduce her new energy plan. The event was clearly intended to be as much about the press as the Iowa voters in attendance, as a large press core helped fill the small venue....

"After her speech, Clinton accepted questions. But according to Grinnell College student Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff 10, some of the questions from the audience were planned in advance. 'They were canned,' she said. Before the event began, a Clinton staff member approached Gallo-Chasanoff to ask a specific question after Clintons speech. 'One of the senior staffers told me what [to ask],' she said.

"Clinton called on Gallo-Chasanoff after her speech to ask a question: what Clinton would do to stop the effects of global warming. Clinton began her response by noting that young people often pose this question to her before delving into the benefits of her plan.

"But the source of the question was no coincidence at this event 'they wanted a question from a college student,' Gallo-Chasanoff said." .

If this report were about a Republican, say Giuliani or Thompson, you know what would be written about it.

But this is Heroine Hillary, the love-boat of mainstream media. 

I'll wait and see....and report to you in a day or two.


OUR UN DOLLARS AT WORK.....

Ken Berwitz

Just in case you need another demonstration of just how morally, spiritually and ethically dead the UN is, try this one on for size.  The article is by Debbie Schlussel, the bold print is mine:.

Debbie Schlussel: Marcel Khalife, Islam's Wagner: Singer/Composer/Playwright of Islamic Terrorists Hosted by Tax-Funded Arab Museum/Social Agency

By Debbie Schlussel

Remember Richard Wagner? The European composer was not only a well-known anti-Semite, but the Nazis played his music while they murdered hundreds of thousands of the 6 million Jews whose lives they snuffed out. He is not only considered an early proponent of the Holocaust decades before it began, but his influence over the Nazi National Socialist Party was enormous.

Now, there is an Arab, pan-Islamist version of Wagner. His name is Marcel Khalife. His plays and songs have served as inspiration for Hezbollah, Lebanese Communist, and Palestinian terrorists in their slaughter of innocent Israelis and Lebanese, including members of the South Lebanese Army (SLA) which fought off Hezbollah for many years. He praises "the Resistance"--yes, that resistance: Islamic terrorists--in everything he writes and performs.

Ironically, he is a "UNESCO Artist for Peace." That means our U.S. funds that subsidize the United Nations go to this cretin to inspire more terrorist killings. But there's more. He's now on our shores.

Marcel Khalife: Terrorists' Muse Glorifies the "Resistance"

Last night, this muse for barbarians was hosted at a meet and great at the tax-funded, Muslim-run, anti-Israel National Arab American Museum in Dearbornistan. Tonight, he is performing in concert at a tax-funded concert hall in Dearbornistan. And tomorrow night, he will perform in the People's Republic of Ann Arbor.

In addition to the tax-funded propaganda museum, Khalife is also being hosted here by the tax-funded Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services (ACCESS--which gets millions in federal tax funds), and a number of other Muslim-dominated Arab organizations.

My peaceful, moderate Lebanese friends here in town are mortified and outraged. And they are shocked. How could a country that claims it is fighting the War on Terror, they ask, welcome this inspirer of terrorism onto our shores?

They point to one very stark example, among many others: Soha Beshara, a Lebanese Communist terrorist murderer and Hezbollah supporter who impersonated an aerobics instructor in order to get in close enough proximity to shoot Antoine Lahd, head of the South Lebanese Army. In late 1988, she shot him (but failed to kill him). She was in the Israeli-supervised El-Khiam prison, where she was scheduled for execution. Beshara told Egyptian newspaper Al-Ahram that she was inspired by Marcel Khalife:

When asked about her last wish before her execution, she said that she would "sing a song by [Lebanese singer] Marcel Khalife, a song that glorifies the Resistance."

Ironically, the article about her from Al-Ahram is reprinted on the Dearbornistan-based Bint Jbeil website (as I've repeatedly noted, Bint Jbeil is the Hezbollah stronghold in South Lebanon where most of the Shi'ite Lebanese Muslims in Dearbornistan come from).

Unfortunately, the Israelis released Soha Beshara from prison after 10 years. But, at least, she is not here on our shores . . . for now.

Disturbingly, the man who inspired her violent acts is. And you are helping subsidize Marcel Khalife with your taxes.

As one Lebanese friend of mine remarked:

I am wondering who invited Marcel Khalife to Michigan. He is to perform two concerts, one in Ann Arbor and one in Dearborn. He is well known in Lebanon and I know as others that he is a member of the Communist party and all of his songs and plays were in the support of terrorist groups against the SLA and Israel. Funny world!!!!!

Yes, and not just funny. Frightening. .

Remember that great rallying cry when we invaded Iraq - after waiting 12 YEARS for the UN to do something?  It was "Let the UN do it's work".

Well, this is the work the UN does.  How do you like it?

Basim Daoud For anyone to criticize and complain about this man an artist this internationally renowned musician Marcel Khalife and to call him and anti-semite and a supporter of terrorists is just plain stupid and wrong. This man stands up for his Palestinian brethren who have been denied there home land and living under occupation and facing daily terrorist attacks On their homes and having their farms uprooted and facing daily settler violence against them. This is plain stupid and venoms talk from this publisher of this article. She do not know this musician and never heard his music and does not know his history in order to make such stupid comments about him. Marcel khalIfe does not only criticized Israeli Zionist expansionism and the stealing of Palestinian land on a daily basis, but he also sings about freedom for all people in this world. He was sent to court in Lebanon because in one of his songs he was accused by one fanatical person of blaspheming the Koran. When the honest Muslim judge heard the song dismissed this case against him. He was also criticised for writing music for a play based on an old Arabic romantic story because it was deemed a bit too sexual. The music of Marcel was taken by the Italian Philharmonic Orchestra and rearranged for an entire symphony. Also one other note Marcel Khalife is a Christian not Muslim. (09/14/11)
