Is it any wonder the French public has been so brainwashed into being anti-war?
An investigation has revealed that the "death" of Mohammed Al-Dura (the Palestinian boy who was "killed" in the cross fire of an exchange between the Israeli army and a bunch of Palestinian terrorists, was actually a staged event. And there are even questions as to whether the boy actually died. There is no evidence one way or the other.
The best part? The French media which originally broke the news refuses to air the documentary which debunks the story and shows how the naive French media was duped by the Palestinians.
With a media which is so naive, duplicitous and outright biased, is it any wonder that Chiraq is able to sell his lies so effectively to a public which is being fed this kind of garbage?
The Canadian Government has decided to assist the USA in the war against terrorism:

The Canadians have agreed to send:
- 2 of their largest battle ships
- 6,000 ground troops
- 6 fighter jets
When the exchange rate is applied, the USA will receive:
- 1 canoe
- 2 mounties
- 12 flying squirrels
You know things are bad when...
The Pope has joined the idiotarians.
As our Rabbi asked this Saturday, while the Pope has asked people to pray for peace in Iraq, who was he praying for when thousands of young boys were (and still are) abused by Cardinals and priests everywhere in the world? Were his prayer directed at making sure the truth would not be discovered? Did he ask people to pray for the 15 people massacred by Arafat's buddies in Haifa last week, most of them teenagers going to school? Oh but sorry, these were mostly Jews, I forgot. This Pope sent his envoys to talk to Saddam, to Bush and to whomever still takes him seriously to try and prevent war in Iraq. Did he send his envoys to talk to the PA, to Hamas, to Hizbollah to ask them to stop massacring innocent Isreali children and women? Remember, this is the same Pope who is about to canonize the Pope who basically did nothing to intervene for the Jews during WWII. Some think that Pope actually tacitly was condoning the Holocaust, although the evidence is thin. But if the Pope at the time did not use his moral authority to at least try to stop the Holocaust, does it not make him an implicit accomplice? And he is about to be canonized?
Now John Paul shows his opposition to the war by exposing his one-sidedness and his bias. A war which may result in some collateral victims among Iraqis is wrong. A war which has resulted in thousands of Israelis and Palestinian deaths is OK. Well, at least, it is not something to worry about.
Time for the Vatican to institute a retirement plan for senile Popes.

Greatest site. But it is really hard to decide which Hollywood celebrity is the biggest idiot.
Celiberal. Definitely a keeper.
Can anyone write as well as James Lilek?
Here's James take on last night's press conference.

My favorite question came from Terry Moran - and whoever named him bought the wrong vowel.

“Thank you, sir. May I follow up on Jim Angle's question. In the past several weeks your policy on Iraq has generated opposition from the governments of France, Russia, China, Germany, Turkey, the Arab League and many other countries, NATO and the U.N., and drawn millions of ordinary citizens around the world into the streets in anti-war protests. May I ask, what went wrong that so many governments and peoples around the world now not only disagree with you very strongly but see the U.S. under your leadership as an arrogant power? “

Ideal response:
“Oh, many things went wrong, Terry. We failed to understand the extent to which the French are economically entwined with Iraq, and how this war would make their knees vibrate like orgasmic hummingbirds. While we realized the power of Anti-Americanism as a cudgel with which to beat the rest of Europe into accepting a Franco-German hegemony, we didn’t think they’d screw us this hard for short-term political gain. We misunderestimated Turkish protestations of support - although, as you no doubt noted from my earlier comments supporting their EU membership and lauding their role in NATO, we’re certainly not going to kick them in the nads in public like some of our allies have done to us. And while I agree that ordinary citizens have protested our government in foreign capitals, I’d ask you why American security should be determined by 26 year old Belgian college students, and I’d also note that these rallies have been organized by people who’d dance in the street if someone set off a tactical nuclear device in the lobby of the Monsanto corporate office. But more to the point, Terry, I’d ask: What went wrong in your education that you believe that the disapproval of China constitutes failure?”
There is at least one smart French person. And she is gorgeous to boot!!
For those of you who failed 4th grade French, her poster says that Chiraq is a worm. She is being way too kind. He is a corrupt, morally bankrupt, slimy piece of garbage. Wow that felt good!
Want to throw up?
Here's the PA's new Prime Minister Abu Mazen, whose claim to fame is to be one of the most ardent Holocaust denier. Yes folks, things actually can get worse. (hat tip to LGF).

Pave France.....the British need more parking spots

RightWingNews has a link to a site called PaveFrance.com ('cause the British need more parking spots), which is a new blog dedicated to keeping a daily record of all the absurdities that make up France and their bloody foreign policies. Go have a look....and enjoy!
How many more notches in Arafat's gun are we going to allow?
Here is the list of the 15 Israelis killed in yesterday's Palestinian homicidal bombing (the bomber was found to have been carrying a note on his body praising Al Qaida for the 9/11 attacks and murders). Notice how most of the innocent victims were kids just going to school, both Jews and Arabs. Where is the world outrage? Where are the condemnations as Palestinians openly and proudly target children? Let's just hope that soon, the entire Palestinian leadership will be held to account for their crimes against humanity. Let's just hope that an all out war against Hamas, Hizbollah and all the other fascist Palestinian entities will result in the elimination of this pack of useless animals. I hope Yassin and Arafat hang. Soon.

And here is what Debka had to say about it...
Fifteen Israelis – mostly high school pupils and Haifa university students – were murdered in a powerful blast generated by a Palestinian homicidal suicide while riding on a Haifa bus on Wednesday, March 5. Only two had lived to see their 45th year. The killer, a Palestinian aged 20 from the West Bank town of Hebron, was identified as Mahmoud Hamdan Selim Kawasme, member of a big Hebron clan and kinsman of a former mayor.
A note found on his body praised to heaven the al Qaeda perpetrators of the September 11 atrocities in New York, in which more than 3000 people died.
Initially he was described as a member of the Islamic extremist Hamas. DEBKAfile’s counter-terror sources say his affiliation is not quite so cut and dried. The young killer was in fact a disciple of Fawzi Ayoub, the high-ranking Lebanese Hizballah officer who infiltrated Israel as a Canadian tourist at the end of 2001and went to ground in Palestinian-controlled territory.

Anti-idiotarian soundbytes...I am guessing this is not going to go over too well in Europe.
SNAPPY ANSWERS TO STUPID LIBERAL SOUNDBYTES
Defeating the Anti-War idiots...By Tom Adkins 3/1/03

Tired of those Stupid Liberal Soundbytes about the impending war against Iraq? Here are some handy snappy answers! Use them often!
The United States is taking unilateral action against Iraq!
-->So far, it's a 90-member worldwide "unilateral" coalition.

We are in a rush to war.
-->An 11-year rush?

Tough inspections can disarm Saddam Hussein without invading Iraq.
-->11 years of inspections have done wonders so far.

We should let the inspectors finish their job.
--> We did. They didn't. We will.

Why fight? The Iraqi military is weaker than in 1991.
--> But their biological weapons and chemical weapons are much more dangerous.

There's no proof of weapons.
--> We know they have 'em, we know they hide 'em, and we have tape recordings and photographs. What more is needed? An Iraqi rocket in Martin Sheen's shorts?

If we invade, Saddam Hussein might use those weapons of mass destruction against us.
--> I thought you said Iraq didn't have them?

But terrorists might attack if we invade Iraq.
-->Oh…so if we don't attack Iraq, terrorists will never strike again?

We shouldn't go to war without a UN resolution.
--> ANOTHER resolution? What about the last 18 resolutions? Shall we use them as wallpaper? Or shall we use the same resolutions Bill Clinton used in Bosnia? (he didn't go to the UN on Bosnia)

We don't have a real declaration for war.
-->It's called "Joint Congressional Resolution #114."

We are giving 20 billion to Turkey. We could use that money at home.
-->OK, we'll use that money to strengthen our Iraqi border with Wyoming.

If North Korea has nuclear weapons, why aren't we invading them first?
--> Uh…hello…isn't that the point?

European leaders are against the war.
--> The Reichstag wasn't attacked. The Grande Place wasn't attacked. The Kremlin wasn't attacked. And the Jerry Lewis Lifetime Achievement Museum wasn't attacked. America was attacked. And besides, except for the tantrums of France, Belgium and Germany, only three European nations aren't willing to defend freedom. The entire rest of Europe is with America.

The French don't support the war.
--> Oh…did they surrender already?

Germany objects to this war.
--> Germany objected to Reagan's "attitude" towards the Soviet Union. Of course, they objected to our presence in 1943 as well.

Belgians are against the war.
--> I can live without Waffles and ice cream.

USSR doesn't support the war.
--> They are still angry over Reagan's brilliant Cold War victory.

Polls show Europeans are against this war.
--> Polls show Europeans believe their freedom was achieved by endlessly debating in marvelous dining halls, conveniently forgetting their right to be pompous blowhards was granted with American blood, not fabulous wine and brie…

We should build a coalition with our friends.
--> With friends like these, who needs enemies?

What happens if we can't build a United Nations coalition?
--> Who cares?

But the UN is the world's most respected governing body.
--> Not as respected as the US military.

America has always waited until enemies attacked.
-->Now that oceans can't hold back enemies, pre-emptive war is forever a necessity.

War will cost billions!
--> So…how much is YOUR city worth?

President Bush says he's willing to violating the 1976 executive order forbidding assassinations of foreign leaders.
--> As soon as the ink is dry on rescinding that idiotic order, will someone please pull the trigger? The line forms to the right…

Many Senators don't support Bush
--> Are you speaking of the Senators from Bordeaux?

Tom Daschle says George Bush has a "credibility gap"
--> When was the last time we came to Tom Daschle for the truth???

These problems didn't happen under Clinton.
--> Actually, they happened. But Clinton ignored them. Now, Bush will clean up his mess.

But Clinton didn't start a war.
--> Unless his girlfriend was testifying before congress…

Bush 1st should have taken out Hussein in '91.
--> That 1991 UN resolution forbade a march on Baghdad. Remember?

Millions of peace activists are demanding we stop the war.
-->Millions of Iraqi's are begging for us to start the war.

Thousands of innocents will be killed or injured.
--> That's a lot less than Hussein is killing right now. (Of course, there's only one man that needs to be killed…)

Young Americans will die in battle.
--> Would you prefer they die in skyscrapers?

Protesters have genuine objections to war
--> Just like they did in Somalia? Bosnia? Afghanistan?

People are coming from all over the world to act as "human shields".
--> Quick, hurry, before the bombs start dropping…

This is about American Imperialism.
--> So which country do we own? What nation sends us their tax dollars? If America was imperialist, we'd already own the entireworld. Who could stand in our way?

This is Blood for Oil
--> The only blood is the Iraqi people tortured, starved and killed while Hussein builds massive palaces to hide nuclear weapons…all financed with Iraqi oil.

This is a racist war.
--> America happily endorses a multi-cultural attitude towards anyone who dares to take away our freedom. Regardless of race, color or creed, we hunt them down and kill them.

A U.S.-led invasion of Iraq is a great recruiting tool for terrorists.
--> Have fun recruiting people into oppressive misery as they enjoy their first taste of freedom.

An attack on Iraq could seriously undermine and destabilize Arab nations.
--> Destabilize the region? The sooner we topple these oppressive 14th century terrorist regimes the better.

Are we prepared for a multi-billion dollar occupation?
--> Were we prepared to liberate Europe and Japan in 1945? South Korea in 1953? Grenada? El Salvador? Kuwait? The Eastern Bloc? Afghanistan? Nations always love Americans when we rescue them from tyranny. The price of freedom is never free.

Polls show Americans are more concerned about the threat from al Qaeda than from Iraq.
--> It's not a war against Al Qaeda. It's not a war against Iraq. It's a war against terrorism. Anywhere we find it. One nation at a time.

American opinion is against the war.
--> No, it's not. A majority of Americans want to fight now, not later.

According to a recent poll…
--> You know what? Screw those polls. We're in a war against terrorism. If you don't want to fight the bastards, get the hell out of the way. Go visit Paris. Or Antwerp. Or Berlin. Or Moscow. And stay there. Forever. But this time, don't call us when the heathens are at the gates.
In Canada, we take security VERY seriously
Today, I had the unmitigated pleasure of going to the Toronto passport office to get a new passport. Got there at 8:05 and was already #63 in line. No kidding, #63. At around 8:30, a man who was waiting came back into the waiting area with a coffee. He was promptly asked to dispose of his coffee IMMEDIATELY as this represented...a security risk. I am not making this up. The man was told he was considered a security risk because he was holding a cup of coffee.
I guess now that the Canadian Government has completely dealt with all the threats around gun smuggling, terrorists organizations operating in Canada, sleeping terrorist cells and border security, it can now focus its energy on the less obvious security threats masquerading as coffee cups. Ha! Who needs a Department of Homeland Security? God bless our vigilant civil servants standing on guard for thee!
Give the man some coffee!....and a hairbrush

Looks like they caught another one of those 9/11 'mastermind' creeps......while he was asleep.



If you can believe it, this is the picture that was taken before the torture began!

From the mouth of babes

I often gloat about how my nine-year old sister Leorah is turning out to be conservative just like my dad and I, but her comments tonight were more priceless than ever, so I thought I'd share.

We were sitting at the dining room table doing homework when she jumped up and said "YOU will NEVER believe what I saw on TV today. There was this girl and she was 14 and she was having a baby!". "Really?" I replied. "Yes. And do you know what that means?" she asked, "It means that she's only fourteen and she's already gotten married and had thing". "Thing?" I asked, to which she cringed and yelled out "YOU KNOW!!!....the s-word!". So then I said to her "Leorah, how do you know she was married?", to which she replied "...because she's having a baby!".

Ok ok, I admit it...the fact that she's nine probably has more to do with her social conservatism than do her political views, but still....it makes me happy.

Update: I should probably clarify...I'm not much of a social conservative and I know that abstinence 'til marriage can't really be associated with conservative views anymore (in fact I can't really find anyone with those views anymore...), but I just said Leorah's views were conservative 'cause ideas like that are usually referred to as being conservative. Hmm...that doesn't make all that much sense now does it? Oh well.
Happy B-Day mom!!

Happy Birthday to my mom who turned twenty today.....for the 28th time.

Tonight, we sat back with our mouths wide open and frozen in anger and disbelief. As Ronny Daniel, Colonel M. and soldiers entered an Arab's house in Schechem, the cameras were filming the three floor 'find' of the IDF Golani heroes today. The 'family' of Arab men, women, and children were escorted out of this house before the IDF engineering unit began to cut apart the tiles of the kitchen floor. The area below the kitchen was filled with hundreds of bags of nails, bolts, and screws in quantities that were apparently more than ACE Hardware's supply in your local mall! The heating and soldering machines were assembled with oil, gas, and combustible materials for the next tens of bus bombs being assembled.

On the second floor of this 'residential house of militants, activists, and residents' (sic), the cameras followed the explaining Colonel M. and our correspondent, Ronny, and we watched as more of our IDF soldiers were removing the walls of the 'kids' bedrooms' to find hand grenades, guns that the Arabs had received and stored. On the 3rd floor of this house, the camera crew captured the bomb belts, their pieces and parts with all sizes, colors, and widths of belts, again more choices than your local belt rack in Nordstrom!

As the officer and soldiers went to the next house in search, the soldier began to shout excitedly on his find in this house. Here we watched again and saw dynamite sticks and fuses inside kids' school bags which our kids carry with school books. There must have been dozens of assembled school bags with bombs inside. Cellular phones and clocks were discovered which are the alleged methods of detonation by remote control of some of the Arabs' terror.

The Colonel M. stated to the correspondent inside Schechem's Casbah that the IDF is now here for months to clean up, capture, destroy as much of these terror tools as possible.

I turned off the TV as I knew that this rare habit of watching the news was dangerous to my health, but tonight's coverage of why we and our soldiers have to go house to house to search and destroy rather than utilize our airforce in one night will not be covered by CNN, BBC, or Reuters. Instead we will be faced with possible IDF injuries or G-d forbid deaths in the coming weeks of this long delayed action by the IDF.
As if we're so united now anyway...

French PM says Iraq war would divide the world.
