The Obama Doctrine continues its failed U.S. foreign policy agenda of alienating the best friends of America, while embracing the mortal enemies of the United States, the democratic Free World and everything we stand for…
On today’s show:
More about the bizarre foreign policy decisions of the Obama administration…Invitations to terrorist group members and their supporters…in spite of questionable legality under American law…
Newly-elected Egyptian president Morsi is also on the guest list, in spite of his recently proclaimed goal of achieving the release of Islamic terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman from American prison…Remember him? He’s the guy who engineered the first World Trade Center bombing…Welcome to the White House, my friend!…

The U.S. Marine Corps Has Adopted a Politically Correct, Culturally Sensitive Urination Policy…Where are Hillary Clinton’s “Concerns”?Written by Marty Roberts on December 7, 2011 – 10:18 am -
On yesterday’s radio show,
(Click HERE to view the articles and listen to the show) I highlighted U.S. Secretary of State Clinton’s remarks in a recent speech. She expressed serious concerns over a small group of religiously observant Israeli Army soldiers unwillingness to listen to a group of female singers performing at an official army ceremony. Hillary is very concerned over the obvious degeneration of democracy and women’s rights in Israel highlighted by this event.
I guess training American Marines how to urinate, fart and defecate in a way that does not “offend” the religion of Islam is a sterling example of tolerance and democracy in action…
By the way, did you know that the meaning of the work “Islam” is submission???
US Marines ordered never to spit or urinate toward Mecca, the direction Muslims in Afghanistan face when they pray
US Marines: No Spitting Toward Mecca
Reprinted from Diana West
Gen. David Petraeus, Col. David Furness, and Shafiq Mubarak. Mubarak served as Furness’s “right hand” during a recent deployment. “I can’t do anything without him,” Furness said.
And who is Shafiq Mubarak? All I can find out is that he is a Pro Sol contractor (?) hired by the Marine Corps Center for Advanced Operational Culture Learning to help implement “the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, the winning of hearts and minds.” At least that’s how Col. Furness puts it. According to the North County Times, Mubarak didn’t come to the US until 2008 — from where the story doesn’t say — but has been working with US troops in A-stan “for much of the past decade.”
How is that? Why is that? Dunno. What the story does report is that Mubarak teaches the do’s and don’t's of sharia — kind of, Islam for Leathernecks.
Mubarak teaches US Marines:
Don’t spit toward Mecca.
Don’t urinate toward Mecaa.
Don’t sleep with your boots toward Mecca.
In other words, Mubarak teaches US Marines to become intensely sensitized to the whereabouts of Mecca, and to be guided by that magnetic North for Muslims as a matter of the most personal habits and hygiene — in accordance with sharia (Islamic law). This goes well, of course, with ISAF’s guidance to all troops to revere the Koran and its teachings.
What next, prayer rugs?
Mubarak told the North County Times:
“We can’t win just by fighting,” said Mubarak, who came to the U.S. less than three years ago after working with American forces in Afghanistan for much of the past decade. “Sitting with tribal elders, learning their problems and helping them is crucial.”
Crucial to what? Solving the problems of one set of tribal elders. Such problems, of course, are likely to differ from those of the next set of tribal elders, particularly when there is a blood feud, a la al-Hatfields and al-McCoys. Talk about tar babies. To coin a phrase: You Don’t Win Hearts and Minds by Losing Your Own.
Mubarak and Tremore spent hours walking troops through the nuances of meetings, or “shuras” with key local leaders. Both stressed the importance of those meetings. …
Mubarak taught the troops the proper way to sit during a shura. He told them they should plan on at least 30 minutes for an initial meeting, and that they should always finish their tea and eat any food presented.
And that includes all the intestinal parasites.
“If you don’t, that means to them that you don’t trust them, or think what they are giving you is poison or is unclean,” he said.
Mubarak also said the Marines should never spit or urinate to the west, the direction of Mecca that Muslims in Afghanistan face when they pray.
In addition, when sharing a base with Afghan army troops, Marines shouldn’t sleep with their feet pointed west, because that also is considered offensive, he said.
Afghan compounds of tribal elders are always neutral ground, Mubarak said. There is no need to wear protective vests, because the custom is that any person inside the compound will have the full protection of the Afghans who live there.
Mubarek said that when Marine Col. David Furness led Camp Pendleton’s Regimental Combat Team 1 during a recent deployment, Furness was able to win over 200 tribal families through shuras. What began as a violent deployment ended with little shooting, Mubarak said.
At what cost? That is, in exchange for what baksheesh, what edge over the next tribe, what amounts of money or local public works projects? We don’t know. How permanent this little piece of shura-peace is, we don’t know, either. But it all impressed Col. Furness, who gave a service award to Mubarak in June 2011 on behalf of the Regimental Combat Team – 1st Marines (RCT-1) CULAD. In the presence of Gen. Petraeus, Col. Furness said:
“General, this is my cultural advisor, Mr. Shafiq Mubarak. Mr. Shafiq is my right hand and I can’t do anything without him. Mr. Shafiq directly assists in direct engagements with Afghan leaders and political decision makers. He has been instrumental in the pursuit of the U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, the winning of hearts and minds.
Or, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

Where was US when protestors for democracy took to the streets in Iran in 2009 after Ahmadinejad’s rigged “democratic” elections?
Hillary’s words of support for the “people in the streets” in Iran ring very empty, indeed…
Iranian protestors, police clash; US backs ‘people in the streets’
Security forces fire teargas to disperse thousands of opposition supporters chanting ‘Death to the dictator’ while marching toward Tehran square; dozens arrested during clashes with police in central Iran. Clinton slams ‘hypocrisy’ of Iranian government. News agency says one killed by protestors
Reprinted from YNetnews.com
Dozens of Iranian opposition supporters were arrested on Monday while taking part in a banned rally in Tehran to support popular uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia, an Iranian opposition website said.
“Witnesses say in some parts of Tehran security forces arrested dozens of protesters,” opposition leader Mirhossein Mousavi’s Kaleme website reported.
Security forces fired teargas to scatter thousands of opposition supporters marching toward a Tehran square, a witness said. There were also clashes between police and demonstrators, resulting in dozens of arrests, in Isfahan in central Iran, the country’s third largest city, another witness told Reuters.
The semi-official Fars news agency said one bystander was shot dead and several other people were wounded by protesters.
The rallies amounted to a test of strength for the reformist opposition, which had not taken to the streets since Dec. 2009, when eight people were killed.
Large numbers of police wearing riot gear and security forces were stationed around the main squares of the capital and pairs of state militiamen roamed the streets on motorbikes.
There were minor clashes at some points across the sprawling capital city of some 12 million people, witnesses said. Mobile telephone connections were down in the area of the protests.
“There are thousands of people marching … Security forces fired tear gas to disperse them near Imam Hossein square,” one witness said earlier in the day.
“Death to the dictator,” some of the protesters chanted, though in other places, demonstrators marched in silence.
The demonstrators marched towards Azadi (Freedom) Square, a traditional rallying point for protests in central Tehran dominated by a huge white marble arch. Hundreds of marchers also gathered in Isfahan and Shiraz, witnesses said.
But security forces surrounded the Tehran houses of opposition leaders Mirhossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi preventing them and Mousavi’s wife, Zahra Rahnavard from joining the march, their websites said.
“Mirhossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard are still trying to leave their house and join the protests… but security forces are preventing them. Security forces have even threatened Mousavi’s guards to not allow them to leave the house by any means,” the Mousavi’s Kalame website said.
Mousavi and Karroubi took advantage of official Iranian backing for the huge street protests in Egypt and Tunisia to call their own demonstrations in solidarity, but authorities refused their request.
The opposition nevertheless renewed the call for the rally. Iranian authorities have warned the opposition to avoid creating a “security crisis” by reviving protests that erupted after the vote, the biggest unrest in Iran since the 1979 revolution.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia an “Islamic awakening”, akin to the 1979 revolution that overthrew the US-backed shah.
But the opposition see the unrest as being more similar to their own protests following the June 2009 election which they say was rigged in favor of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.
The Revolutionary Guards, fiercely loyal to Khamenei, put down the 2009 protests. Two people were hanged and scores of opposition supporters jailed.
Turkish President Abdullah Gul, on a visit to Tehran, called on Middle Eastern governments to listen to the demands of their people, although he did not refer to Iran.
“We see that sometimes when the leaders and heads of countries do not pay attention to the nations’ demands, the people themselves take action to achieve their demands,” Gul told a news conference alongside Ahmadinejad.
Any use of heavy force to stop the marches in Iran during Gul’s visit could be an embarrassment for Turkey.
However, Ankara, officially an ally of the West, was one of the first governments to congratulate Ahmadinejad on his 2009 re-election and is seeking to triple the volume of trade with its neighbour despite UN, US and EU sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic over its disputed nuclear activity.
Iranian authorities deny doctoring the 2009 election results and accuse opposition leaders of being part of a Western plot to overthrow the Islamic system.
“They are incapable of doing a damn thing,” the hardline Kayhan newspaper quoted Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi as saying, echoing words used by the late revolutionary leader Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini to refer to the United States. The opposition is “guided by Iran’s enemies abroad”, Moslehi said.
US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed support for the tens of thousands of protesters in Iran’s capital, saying they “deserve to have the same rights that they saw being played out in Egypt and are part of their own birthright.”
Speaking to reporters after meeting House Speaker John Boehner on Monday, Clinton said she and others in Barack Obama’s administration “very clearly and directly support the aspirations of the people who are in the streets” of Tehran.
She spoke of the “hypocrisy” of the Iranian government that hailed the protests in Egypt but has tried to suppress opposition at home.
Clinto added that there “needs to be a commitment to open up the political system, to hear the voices of the opposition and civil society.”

Fatah Dedicated a Municipal Square After A Mass Murderer of Innocents…This is NOT the Act of a Peace Partner of IsraelWritten by Marty Roberts on March 23, 2010 – 2:33 pm -
I guess everyone was just too busy tongue-clicking, tsk-tsking and finger-wagging at Israel to notice this event involving Israel’s “peace partner”, the Fatah government of the Palestinian Authority, led by “moderate” leader Mahmoud Abbas.
Maybe it was intentional, given that Hillary Clinton, in her address to AIPAC yesterday, referred to the event as:
“When a Hamas-controlled municipality glorifies violence and renames a
square after a terrorist who murdered innocent Israelis, it insults the
families on both sides who have lost loves ones over the years in this
Only problem is, the municipality AND governing body is controlled by Abbas’s Fatah…Not a Hamas official in sight at the ceremony.
If the US is to be trusted as a third-party broker of peace in the negotiations between Israel and the palestinians, they better start acting AT LEAST impartial. The palestinians have already committed several times to stopping anti-Israel incitement and violence. According to the US, what the palestinians are doing is just fine. According to a reasonably intelligent, thinking person, it would seem otherwise.
Dedicating a municipal square in the name of a mass-murderer of innocent civilians is not an acceptable act by MY peace partner, and I would expect the US, as a third-party intermediary, to make this abundantly clear. They might even declare the Palestinian Authority as being in non-compliance with previously signed agreements…several of them.
But then again, Israel IS building apartments for Israeli citizens in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel…
Fatah holds ceremony naming square after terrorist
Move comes despite PA announcement it had postponed inauguration of square named after Dalal Mughrabi, who led 1978 Coastal Road massacre in which 37 Israeli were killed.
Despite the Palestinian Authority’s announcement that it had postponed the inauguration of a square in el-Bireh named after Dalal Mughrabi, the Fatah woman who led the 1978 Coastal Road massacre in which 37 Israeli civilians and an American photographer were killed, and 71 were wounded, Fatah officials on Thursday evening went ahead with the ceremony.
In addition, the PA on Sunday launched a seminar named after Mughrabi. The four-day seminar, called “Martyr Dalal Mughrabi Camp,” is being held in Jericho under the auspices of the PA’s Military Science Academy. Its main goal is to discuss the legislative and local elections in the PA territories.

Fatah officials celebrated popular inauguration of terrorist square
Senior Fatah officials joined Fatah youth movement
in “popular inauguration” ceremony for terrorist square
Senior Fatah official: Inauguration was postponed
due to “technical reasons,” not Israeli pressure
Reprinted from Palestinian Media Watch
by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik
Although world pressure forced the Palestinian Authority to cancel the official ceremonies to name a square after the terrorist Dalal Mughrabi last week, several senior Fatah officials participated in a “popular inauguration” organized by Fatah’s youth movement. According to the PA, the square is now named after Mughrabi and an official ceremony, including placing a monument, will take place at a later date. Thursday’s “popular inauguration” was on the 32nd anniversary of “the Coastal Road Massacre” of 1978, in which 37 were murdered in a bus hijacking.
Among the senior Fatah officials participating in the popular inauguration were Tawfiq Tirawi, member of the Fatah Central Committee and former head of the PA Police in the West Bank, and Jamal Huweil, a Fatah member of Palestinian Parliament from Fatah.
Trying to minimize the impact of world pressure on the PA, Adnan Al-Dumeiri, spokesman for the PA Security Apparatus, announced at the “popular inauguration” that the official inauguration was postponed “due to technical reasons and not because of Israel’s request.”
Fatah spokesman Dr. Faiz Abu Aytah called terrorist Dalal Mughrabi “a symbol in the history of our national struggle” and emphasized “the right of Fatah, of the Palestinian Authority, and of the Palestinian people to celebrate the anniversary of her [Mughrabi's] Martyrdom.”
These statements were among a series of PA statements and events meant to emphasize and reinforce the message to the Palestinian population that Dalal Mughrabi, in spite of the international condemnation, is still to be glorified as a Palestinian hero and honored as a Martyr.
The following are statements made by Fatah officials and reports in the official PA papers supporting the “popular inauguration” of the terrorist square:
“The Palestinian Authority yesterday postponed its inauguration of a square named after the self-sacrificing Dalal Mughrabi in the town of El-Bireh, in the wake of an official Israeli protest, but this did not prevent tens of youth from inaugurating [the square] in a popular fashion…
Members of the El-Bireh council, who requested anonymity, said that the inauguration of the square had been postponed after the senior PA personnel received a message from the Israeli government…
Adnan Al-Dumeiri, a spokesman for the security apparatus, said that the inauguration of the junction had been postponed ‘for technical reasons, not in the wake of a request by Israel.’ He added, ‘Neither Israel nor any other body is able to prevent us from taking pride in our history.’
Siham Barghouti, Minister of Culture, told Agence France Presse: ‘It is our right to honor our Shahids (Martyrs) and to name our streets after the Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi on the anniversary of her martyrdom, and this is an inalienable right of the Palestinian people.’
Tens of young men and women gathered at the junction at the hour when the official inauguration was to have taken place, bearing pictures of Dalal Mughrabi, in the presence of senior Fatah personnel.
Mustafa Abu Rabi’a, one of the senior Fatah personnel in Ramallah and El-Bireh, said: ‘Today is the popular inauguration of the junction named after the Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi…’
Jamal Huweil, a Fatah member of the Palestinian Parliament (Legislative Council), who was at the square, said that the fact that Israel prevented the naming of the junction after Dalal Mughrabi represented ‘impertinent and unacceptable intervention’.
Tawfiq Tirawi, a member of the Fatah Central Committee, said: ‘We shall not submit to any threats, and we are here today to celebrate our history and our battle in naming the square after Mughrabi.’ A large boulder with Dalal Mughrabi’s name on it was to have been placed at the junction, but it was not delivered yesterday. Giant photographs of Dalal Mughrabi were hung at the junction, located close to the Political Guidance headquarters.”
[Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, March 12, 2010]
Headline: “In response to what Netanyahu calls incitement – Fatah: We are proud of Dalal Mughrabi, and she is a great symbol in the history of our national struggle”
“Fatah spokesman, Dr. Faiz Abu Aytah, said that the Israeli Prime Minister’s words concerning what he referred to as acts of incitement on the part of the Palestinian Authority, were said as part of the twisting of facts and the fabrications against the [Palestinian] Authority…
Abu Aytah responded to statements by the Israeli Minister of Information, who described the Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi as a terrorist. Concerning the intention of the Palestinian Authority to inaugurate a square named after [Dalal Mughrabi] in Ramallah, he said: ‘The Shahida (Martyr) Dalal Mughrabi is a symbol in the history of our national struggle, and the Palestinian people is proud of her sacrifice. Likewise, Fatah is proud of Dalal’s affiliation with it as a movement of national liberation which is continually innovating new methods of struggle.’ He emphasized: ‘It is the right of Fatah, of the Palestinian Authority, and of the Palestinian people to celebrate the anniversary of her Martyrdom in a manner that is worthy of her, as a heroine, a commander who fought with honor against an occupation army. It is our right to eternalize her name; we do not wait for anyone’s approval to emphasize our loyalty to the Shahids (Martyrs).’”

Hillary and the US show their true colors…
With friends like these, who needs enemies? Ramp up pressure on your best friend and ally? This is supposed to achieve a real and lasting peace? With the enemies of Israel that are launching missiles, rockets and bullets at Israeli citizens on a daily basis?
Thanks to the “Obama Intifada”, the Arabs have felt free to riot and attack Jewish civilians, soldiers and policemen every day for weeks now. They can taste blood, drawn by, of all people, the American administration. US actions and statements have forced the Israeli security forces to fight back against the Arab insurgency, which has led to the death of those same rioting Arabs.
It would not be inappropriate for the true supporters of Israel, who I hope are the attendees at the AIPAC meeting right now in America, to all stand up and walk out as Hillary begins to address the gathering.
Judging by her recent statements and actions, at the present time, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her boss, President Obama are NOT friends of Israel. They have no business addressing AIPAC…
Clinton: Decision to escalate row with Israel ‘is paying off’
U.S. Secretary of State says pressure over East Jerusalem construction could restart negotiations.
Reprinted from Haaretz.com
United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday that the Obama administration’s decision to ramp up pressure on Israel over construction of Jewish homes in East Jerusalem was bringing results.
In an interview with BBC television, Clinton was asked whether escalating the tone with Israel had paid off.
She said: “I think we’re going to see the resumption of the negotiation track and that means that it is paying off because that’s our goal.”
Over the past two weeks Israel has sought to cool American ire over plans for 1,600 new homes in Ramat Shlomo, a Jewish neighborhood that lies beyond the Green Line in East Jerusalem.
Clinton had described the announcement, which coincided with a visit to Israel by U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and led Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to pull out of scheduled U.S.-mediated peace talks, as an “insult”.
It was now the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s duty to overcome opposition within his coalition government and ensure that the stalled negotiations moved forward, Clinton told the BBC.
“I think what the prime minister has said repeatedly is that his government and he personally are committed to pursuing these negotiations and he just has to make sure that he brings in everyone else,” she said.
“That’s his responsibility and it’s not something that the United States can or is interested in doing.”
Over the past few days the U.S has signaled its desire to move beyond the row over Ramat Shlomo and focus on restarting so-called the ‘proximity talks’ between Israel and the Palestinians.
Palestinian officials told The Associated Press on Friday that it appeared unlikely Abbas would defy mounting international pressure for a return negotiations.
Israel also seems willing to return to the negotiating table.
At a news conference later Friday following a meeting of the Quartet of Middle East peace mediators in Moscow, Clinton indicated that Netanyahu is ready to address U.S. concerns.
“What I heard from the prime minister in response to the requests we made was useful and productive,” she said.
In a telephone call to Netanyahu last week, Clinton laid out U.S. expectations from Israel including a rollback to the housing plan, a gesture of good faith to the Palestinians and an express statement that all issues dividing Israel and the Palestinians, including the fate of divided Jerusalem, remain part of the negotiations.
Clinton said she expects to see Netanyahu in Washington next week, where both are to address the annual gathering of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
President Obama had planned to be out of town during Netanyahu’s visit but canceled his trip to remain in Washington for a vote on his health care overhaul.
According to reports on Friday, the president has scheduled a last-minute meeting with Netanyahu.
