Recently I spoke of there already being a Palestinian State – Jordan. Now we get news that a Jordanian official speaks of 'State of two banks'.

In the Middle East, there is no lack of contradictions, and that is nowhere more obvious than in the world of politics. If you have been inoculated with a political needle, then this part of the world is always entertaining.

King Abdullah II has up until recently, been very positive about his nation’s friendship with Israel....

Some Jordanians, apparently including King Abdullah, are upset that Israel is not surrendering enough of their bargaining chips fast enough to the Palestinians. One facet of their unrest with Israel is the trade agreements that the two nations share.

When there was animas between Israel and Jordan, obviously there was little exchange between the two nations aside from border disagreements – which were often settled by generals of each nation who met unofficially to work things out sub rosa - according to what one retired Jordanian general told...

“This is his third political disaster in his first 18 months in office. And they were all, as they say, unforced errors, meaning they were shaped by the president's political judgment and instincts.” Peggy Noonan

I have honestly tried to give President Obama fair treatment. One man sent me an email reminding me that “Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” (Romans 13:1) I don’t think he got the point, in all fairness. I understand that God let America get the kind of President they deserve (the last part of that verse.) And I certainly would not try to overthrow the government run by Mr. Obama, nor ever encourage anyone else to do so. And who can’t get it that God is ultimately in charge? That last bit is my point.

National Review Online’s article by Victor Davis Hanson begins with a bold statement and finishes with some interesting questions.

We are going to provide you with both ends, but also add some remarks of our own. For the complete piece, follow the link at the end.

Death of the Postmodernist Dream

By Victor Davis Hanson

“As crises mount abroad and voters’ anger grows at home, Obama’s dream of a new world order has died a quiet death.

“In just a few months the brave new dream world as we knew it has died — but with a whimper, not a bang. “There will be no more lectures on soft power and a Baltic-to-Mediterranean postmodern culture. Suddenly European Union expansion is dead in its tracks. The question of Turkish membership, after a decade-long controversy, has been settled without so much as a demonstration. The Europeans don’t want another Greece in their midst; the Turks don’t want German bankers running their sagging finances. A soaring Euro...

WHEN THEY MEET: WHO’S STRONGEST AT HOME, BARRY OR BIBI?

The last time President Obama and Prime Minister Netanyahu met it was a disaster – in a way for both men; brought on by Obama, the rudeness and arrogance with which he reportedly treated the head of state of our only real ally in the Middle East. Bibi’s disaster was more in being on the receiving end of said bad manners. When a world leader is treated like a recalcitrant child it doesn’t help him at home.

But Rahm Emmanuel has carried the news to Jerusalem that Barry O wants a “do-over.”

Today we take a look at the challenges the two men face back home.

We are often asked what it’s like living in Israel. Tourists get a glimpse of the country we love, but not of day to day life, really. For a boy raised around the wheat and corn fields of the southern Midwest, raised in a town of 85 people, and having lived in the Mid-Eastern coast of the US it is vastly different.

A few years ago a young man we met at a freelance journalist meeting started a web site called Janglo. Offering English speakers in Jerusalem a place to go to get questions answered, learn the ins and outs of life in the Holy City, sell stuff or buy it and lots more. We found our favorite coffee – Krakatoa – at the Coffee Mill on Emek Refaim St. in the German Colony by posting a question on Janglo.

And today Janglo is a flourishing place not only for Jerusalem but much of Israel. They sent out a heads-up on a look at one of the oldest neighborhoods in Tel Aviv this morning. It is pure Israeli culture, and we thought you might enjoy a look at the places and people in this one small slice...

When an Obama advisor cannot call Israel by its proper name, and calls Jerusalem “al Quds” what do you think is going on!?



Deputy Security Advisor Brennan speaking sloppy Arabic, telling the other Arabic speakers not to tell the non-speakers what he said, and then proceeding to mention Palestine and Al Quds in his remarks is sad to watch.

I remind you that in the 70s there was no Palestine. The so-called West Bank was then part of the first Palestinian State – Jordan – and no one was even talking about a Palestinian State and Arafat’s PLO was blowing up civilians the world over.

Understand, I don’t have an objection to any US administration “making nice” with friendly Arab nations. Even talking to Syria has some benefits. But when one is so obviously licking boots as Brennan, then it...

MOORE’S MUSINGS: That was the remark from a friend when I recounted this story. And you have to admit that it sure give you pause.   Many Americans currently believe that the Obama Regime is not only socialist moving toward Communist at a time the rest of the world is learning the horrors of such ideologies, but now they wonder if the administration hasn’t co-opted even the police into an attitude of illegality, if not Stasi-orientation.

We were watching Bret Bair’s show on Fox News when one of the correspondents mentioned that SEIU’s thugs were marching outside her neighbor’s home that day. This lady was certainly not a “right wing kook.” She is a professional, balanced reporter for The Hill.

Then we came across the following report that the union demonstrators had been escorted to their location – outside of Washington, DC – by the DC police!!
