06-16-06 - Condi and the Isolationists by Patrick J. Buchanan Is it the isolationists who cannot end a column or commentary without howling for new preemptive strikes on "Islamofascists"? Was it isolationists who reveled in those Danish cartoons, reprinting them and declaring them to be a fine expression of Western values? ...Was it isolationists who sent an army storming into Baghdad in search of weapons of mass destruction that did not exist.....Is it isolationists who are supporting Israel's strangulation of aid-dependent Palestinians....

06-16-06 - Pentagon confirms Iranian directorate as officials raise new concerns about war A recent trip by Michael Ledeen to Rome has raised red flags among those concerned about a potential war with Iran. Some believe that Ledeen -- a long-time advocate of Iranian regime change -- was involved in the Niger forgeries scandal. Michael Ledeen is a neoconservative.

06-16-06 - Get Out Your Tinfoil Hats They appear to be tied to conservatives and there appears to be a tie to, the ultra-right-wing web site. Same outfit visited my blog, on more than one occasion. The comments feature is disabled on both of my blogs. Pro-Israelis, actively engaged in 'Hasbara' or PR ops, and whose numbers are extremely high in cyberspace, flood such media with their cybergraffiti every chance they get. I refuse to give them the opportunity. According to my own research, the visitor using netvocates seems to be based in the same city as this scandal involving that state's Republican party . Perhaps they've changed tack and are now jamming blogs instead of phone lines?

06-16-06 - 'Debating' the Iraq War - It isn't happening ? at least, not in Congress bin Laden and his cohorts are driven by the U.S. military presence in the Persian Gulf, and America's unconditional support for Israel and its apparent indifference to the plight of the Palestinians

06-16-06 - Bush extends Jerusalem embassy delay President Bush delayed moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem for another six months.

06-16-06 - Israel blocks RussNeft bid in oil refinery tender The source said the Israeli decision might have also been influenced by Russia's relations with Arab countries, a March visit made by a delegation from radical Palestinian political party Hamas and weapons supplies to Algeria

06-16-06 - Open Borders Threaten Jewish Clout Closer to home, massive immigration will obliterate Jewish power by shrinking our percentage of the population ? to a fraction of 1% in 20 years. Jews possess political clout despite tiny numbers because we are concentrated in large electoral vote states, have legendary voting rates, donate significantly to both parties and dominant culture. We will retain residual influence due to campaign contributions, membership in institutional establishments and the endurance of our alliances, but the Latino vote will eventually overwhelm us....And except for the evangelical part of the community, Latinos do not share any particularly strong bond to Israel.....Latino population growth is inevitable, but exponential growth is not. If we can keep the numbers within reasonable bounds ? which would hasten immigrant acculturation and reduce traditional cultural bigotry ? we will likely maintain our position.

Wow. THe Latino immigrants are ok, so long as the Jewish groups can keep their numbers to a comfortable limit - one which would not threaten their interests. The rest of Americans, be damned.

06-16-06 - As China's economy grows, so does the Jewish community - and Chabad "Ninety percent of the Jews who come to China come not because they fall in love with Chinese culture, but because there are opportunities." ..."We are absolutely determined that the infrastructure of Judaism in China should be Chabad. That's why we set up a JCC in each place, because Chabad cares for Jews in a way few other organizations do," he said. "We have the right balance of not compromising Jewish values and tolerating those who do. But tolerance does not mean we have to endorse intermarriage." China is slated to be an economic superpower by 2026 (as America's economy tanks). This move is no coincidence. Israel's survival must be ensured (by these folks).

06-16-06 - Burning Cole Neoconservatism is an elite calling. It thrives in think tanks, not union halls; its proponents want most of all to influence the powerful. No wonder Ivy League labels have always been important to neocons. This fixation on intellectual prestige explains the recent neocon uprising over the possibility that Juan Cole, scholar and blogger, would become a Yale professor
