US Secretary of State John Kerry phoned Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday to apologize for the remarks of anonymous senior government officials, calling Israeli prime minister “chikenshit”.
Kerry and Netanyahu had a “good conversation” that included a discussion of ways to improve relations between US and Israeli leaders, American officials told the Times of Israel. The two men also discussed other regional issues, including efforts to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions.
“The thing about Bibi [Netanyahu] is, he’s a chickenshit,” a senior Obama administration official told the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg, who published the quote in an article Tuesday on the “crisis in US-Israeli relations.”
“The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars. The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states,” the anonymous source continued.
The White House and Kerry moved quickly to distance themselves from the quotes.
The president’s press secretary Josh Earnest said the anonymous officials’ remarks do not reflect the US position or President Barack Obama’s views.
“We condemn anybody who uses language such as was used in this article. That does not reflect the president, it does not reflect me,” Kerry said at the Sixth Annual Washington Ideas Forum on Thursday. “It is disgraceful, unacceptable, damaging, and I think neither President Obama nor I – I’ve never heard that word around me in the White House or anywhere – I don’t know who these anonymous people are who keep getting quoted in things. But they make life much more difficult, and we are proud of what we have done to help Israel through a very difficult time.”
On Wednesday, Netanyahu made the unusual move of responding directly to the quotes, using them to his political advantage, according to Newsweek. Israeli leaders usually do not acknowledge comments made anonymously.
“Our supreme interests, chiefly the security and unity of Jerusalem, are not the main concern of those anonymous officials who attack us and me personally, as the assault on me comes only because I defend the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said in opening a memorial ceremony in parliament for an Israeli cabinet minister assassinated by a Palestinian in 2001.
“Despite all of the attacks I suffer, I will continue to defend our country. I will continue to defend the citizens of Israel,” he added.
Regardless of the crassness of the comments in the Atlantic, many Israelis agree with the characterization of the country’s leader, as he is considered to be one of the most risk-averse Israeli prime ministers in history, Newsweek reported.
Yet the man nicknamed Bibi is being attacked on the homefront as well. On Thursday, left-leaning paper Haaretz published a political cartoon that depicted Netanyahu flying a plane labeled “Israel” into New York City’s Twin Towers, which is flying the American flag. Cartoonist Amos Biderman offered no caption to explain the drawing.
In a phone interview with the Times of Israel, Biderman explained that the cartoon implied Netanyahu was leading to “a disaster in Israel-US relations on the scale of 9/11,” pointing to the prime minister’s “arrogance” and unchecked settlement construction in the West Bank and eastern Jerusalem.
Fox News is reporting that a Marine Corps father has been banned from his daughter’s school after he complained about her homework assignment on Islam. Kevin Wood said his daughter was told to write a three page essay about Islam’s five pillars, at La Plata High School in Maryland. He argued that students can’t study Christianity in school “but we can force-feed our kids Islam.”
When are we going to weed out the hypocrites in our government. This is One Nation Under God not a Nation Under Islam. People have been trying to remove God from our schools for decades. Now we have school boards that say it’s ok to teach Islam, and talk about Muhammad. A man who married a child at the age of six, and had sex with her when she was nine. That’s a good role model for our kids don’t you think. Our kids are not allowed to pray to God in school but they can write reports on Islam.
These hypocrites in our school system need to know they can’t have it both ways. If our kids are not allowed to talk about Jesus then teachers should not be allowed to talk about Muhammad. If The teaching of God is not allowed in our schools, then there is no way you should ever allow the teaching of Satan. The separation of Church and State applies to everyone in this country. God bless each and everyone of you… Semper Fi, Shep

Unbelievable. Our military has to hide that they’re in the military on our own soil? Isn’t that giving terrorists the upper hand? Howzabout we put these Muslim stooges in internment camps instead? Check this out…
Through our confidential contacts in U.S. Military Special Operations, ClashDaily.com has been provided a copy of an unclassified Department of Defense directive, USNORTHCOM Force Directive 1-295, which essentially orders our troops into hiding here in their own sovereign territory and in Canada, whenever they leave their duty stations.
The directive, issued a week ago in close coordination with our Canadian allies, describes in detail the recent deadly sequence of Islamic jihad attacks on Canadian military members in Ottawa and near Montreal. It also describes the ongoing threats announced by ISIS, commanding their jihadi sleepers and “lone wolves” to murder any and all Americans possible (especially military members and their dependents) here at home. The directive orders that all U.S. military personnel in North America who are in “public venues” or using commercial transportation are to refrain from wearing uniforms, insignias, or any other kind of identifying clothing or items which indicate their military affiliation, “unless complying with official travel instructions or other orders.”
While it is understood that the specific targeting of U.S. and Canadian military personnel by ISIS is very serious, very real, and has already proven disastrously deadly, one cannot help but consider the fact that we are basically, timidly, allowing the enemy to dictate the terms and rules of engagement here, on our turf.
It’s extremely unfortunate, and even more so because it doesn’t have to be this way.
How is it avoidable? As with other maddeningly timid rules of engagement during this long war — in areas of operation overseas and in anti-terrorism policies and operations everywhere — the present situation is the result of the craven politically-correct ideology that says when dealing with those who resemble the enemy and share the enemy’s nationalities, culture, and stated religion, we must err on the side of non-aggression and exert ourselves to avoid giving offense.
In the aftermath of the 1941 attack by the Imperial Japanese on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, our country’s leadership ordered the rounding up all of those here on our soil who had at least some surface liability to sympathize or otherwise be aligned with our mortal enemies. We didn’t screw around and unnecessarily put more American lives at risk. The threat was real.
While World War II escalated, we didn’t excessively wring our hands and worry more about whether we were violating the rights of people whose loyalties were legitimately in question than we did about preventing further attacks — we were at war, and our leaders made the clear decision to protect the homeland, and to win.
At that time, rounding up the Nisei, and certain others related to the Axis powers, was the right thing to do given the circumstances. In her phenomenal and exhaustively researched book titled In Defense of Internment: The Case for Racial Profiling in World War II and the War on Terror, author Michelle Malkin details the specifics of our government’s systematic evacuation of the Nisei and others away from critical areas and into comfortable, secured communities (“internment camps” replete with recreation facilities and movie theaters, etc.) until the threat was eliminated and the war was over.
Those who go around apologizing for all of that today are in the same league of dhimmis, derelicts, doofuses, and outright traitors who squashed the Phoenix Memo prior to Sept. 11th, 2001, and who prevented FBI counter-terrorism agents from ever communicating with each other at all out of excessive concern for “sensitivities” and “appearances” (recall Clinton deputy Jamie Gorelick’s increased “wall of separation” between law enforcement and intelligence units). They are the same “progressives” who still refuse to secure our borders against illegal and dangerous foreign invasions and crime networks, and who continually release the worst of the worst of our enemy’s warriors and top commanders from Guantanamo Bay. They are the same worthless enablers of terror attacks who ignored numerous red flags to let the underwear bomber get on the plane in Africa, bound for Detroit, and who poo-pooed the Russians’ warnings about the Tsarnaev brothers prior to the Boston Marathon bombings.
They are the same people among the liberal vanguard of multiculturalist Canadian political bureaus who made sure that the murderous jihadis of last week, already known to security personnel as posing some degree of threat, were left free to plot and carry out their attacks. They are the psychotically stubborn people in the media and in office who do everything they can to not call last week’s jihad hatchet murder rampage against New York City cops exactly what it was, lest that assessment “contribute to negative stereotypes” of Muslims/minorities — until they have completely exhausted the fetid reservoir of diversity-correctness and are forced to acknowledge the facts.
They do everything they can to marginalize and vilify voices like mine and ours, when we call for more aggressive measures to contain and eliminate the broader threat posed by followers of Mohammed in this modern era.
They are the alleged “authorities” who say that instead of aggressively rounding up and/or otherwise profiling young Muslim men who pose at least some degree of threat of being aligned with jihad extremism, we must order our military personnel to go incognito in the very land our security forces and citizens could, instead, readily secure, if those so-called authorities would simply let us do it.
Here’s the meat of the text copied from USNORTHCOM Force Directive 1-295 itself:
3.(U/FOUO) SITUATION. THIS WEEK CANADA EXPERIENCED, AS DESCRIBED BY OFFICIALS, TERRORIST
ATTACKS TARGETING MILITARY PERSONNEL NEAR MONTREAL AND A SMALL ARMS ATTACK IN OTTAWA.
THE ATTACK NEAR MONTREAL WAS THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL SUNNI EXTREMIST ATTACK IN CANADA AND
RESULTED IN THE DEATH OF ONE CANADIAN SERVICE MEMBER WHEN A HOMEGROWN VIOLENT
EXTREMIST HIT THE SERVICE MEMBER AND ANOTHER INDIVIDUAL WITH HIS VEHICLE IN AN OFF BASE
PARKING LOT. TWO DAYS LATER, AT LEAST ONE GUNMAN SHOT AND KILLED A SOLDIER AT THE
NATIONAL WAR MEMORIAL. THE GUNMAN THEN RAN TO THE PARLIAMENT BUILDING WHERE HE
ENGAGED SECURITY GUARDS AND WAS KILLED. WE DO NOT YET KNOW IF THESE ATTACKS WERE
RELATED OR DIRECTED BY AN OVERSEAS TERRORIST ORGANIZATION. REGARDLESS, THE ATTACKS
UNDERSCORE THE INCREASED TERRORIST THREAT TO WESTERN MILITARY AND GOVERNMENT
PERSONNEL, PARTICULARLY OUTSIDE SECURE FACILITIES. THESE ATTACKS FOLLOW THE 21 SEPTEMBER
GUIDANCE FROM AN ISIL AUDIO MESSAGE CALLING FOR THE KILLING OF MILITARY OR CIVILIANS IN THE
WEST BY ANY MEANS AVAILABLE. THE MESSAGE INCLUDED DIRECTION TO KILL AMERICANS, FRENCH
CITIZENS OR THEIR ALLIES. WE EXPECT THESE ATTACKS TO RESONATE AMONG EXTREMISTS IN NORTH
AMERICA AND THIS THREAT IS LIKELY TO PERSIST IN THE NEAR TERM.
4.(U) USNORTHCOM DIRECTIVE EFFECTIVE WITH MESSAGE ISSUANCE:
4.A.(U/FOUO) DOD ELEMENTS AND PERSONNEL UNDER THE SECURITY RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CHIEF OF
MISSION (COM), AMERICAN EMBASSY, OTTAWA WILL COMPLY WITH COM SECURITY GUIDANCE,
AND TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, COMPLY WITH CANADIAN FORCES (CF) UNIFORM POLICY FOR OFF-DUTY,
OFF-INSTALLATION WEAR AS APPROPRIATE. REFER TO REF C FOR AMPLIFICATION OF COM SECURITY
4.B.(U/FOUO) DOD ELEMENTS AND U.S. MILITARY PERSONNEL UNDER THE SECURITY AND FORCE
PROTECTION RESPONSIBILITY OF THE USNORTHCOM AND NORAD COMMANDER IN CANADA WILL
COMPLY WITH USNORTHCOM TRAVELER FPCON MEASURE TC10 PER REF B; ELIMINATE THE VISIBLE
WEAR OF MILITARY UNIFORMS OR OTHER IDENTIFYING CLOTHING IN PUBLIC VENUES UNLESS
COMPLYING WITH OFFICIAL TRAVEL INSTRUCTIONS OR OTHER ORDERS. ADDITIONALLY, DOD
PERSONNEL WILL NOT WEAR VISIBLE UNIFORMS WHEN UTILIZING COMMERCIAL TRAVEL MEANS TO
AND FROM CANADA. REFER TO REF C FOR AMPLIFICATION OF COMBATANT COMMANDER
4.C.(U) THIS DIRECTIVE REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL RESCINDED OR SUPERSEDED.
5.(U) U.S. MILITARY AND OUR ALLIES IN UNIFORM HAVE BEEN TARGETED IN REAL-WORLD INCIDENTS
AND VIRTUALLY VIA SOCIAL MEDIA. TERRORIST ORGANIZATIONS HAVE OPENLY ENCOURAGED
SYMPATHIZERS TO ATTACK DOD PERSONNEL AND THEIR DEPENDENTS. FOR YOUR SAFETY AND THE
SAFETY OF YOUR UNIT AND OTHERS AFFILIATED WITH THE MILITARY SERVICES I URGE YOU TO
MAINTAIN AWARENESS OF YOUR PUBLIC SURROUNDINGS, REFRAIN FROM POSTING TO PUBLIC MEDIA
OR SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES INFORMATION THAT MAY PLACE YOURSELF, YOUR FAMILIES, OR OTHER
DOD PERSONNEL IN JEOPARDY, AND REPORT ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY PROMPTLY TO MILITARY
POLICE OR OTHER APPROPRIATE AUTHORITY. BOTH UNITS AND INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE,
EXERCISE, AND IMPLEMENT EMERGENCY ACTION PLANS SHOULD THREATS MATERIALIZE. I EXPECT
COMMANDERS TO CONTINUOUSLY EVALUATE EXISTING AT/FP MEASURES AND WORK-PLACE
EMERGENCY ACTIONS PLANS FOR EFFECTIVENESS, IN PARTICULAR THOSE FOR OFF-INSTALLATION
FACILITIES SUCH AS MILITARY RECRUITING STATIONS. COMMANDERS MUST ENSURE THEIR PERSONNEL
ARE EDUCATED ON THE POTENTIAL THREATS AND KNOW THE ACTIONS THEY CAN TAKE TO REMAIN
Unfortunately, all of that makes perfect sense, given the circumstances — circumstances which have resulted from the ongoing failure of leadership and deliberate policy decisions guided by the groveling, apologetic, anti-American ideology which says it’s more important to protect the feelings and the military academies (mosques) of the enemy than it is to protect innocent lives like little 8-year-old Martin Richard, murdered by a Tsarnaev brothers’ bomb at the Boston Marathon.
If we ever have sound leadership in this country again while the threat of Islamic jihad exists, any Muslims on our soil will cautiously hide their religious garb/affiliation while our troops proudly wear their uniform of our nation on their way home off-base or on their lunch break at the McDonald’s outside the post gate.
Practice situational awareness at all times.
IT has never been the case that this site has “cried wolf”, relative to Islam or the Marxist left. If anything, readers should know that this investigative journalist has evinced remarkable “restraint”, considering the explosive info which comes this way, some of which is “too hot” to reveal. Believe it.
BUT one needn’t immerse themselves in the jihadi muck to know this: it is against the law to teach/indoctrinate religion within the public school system, and the Establishment Clause, housed within the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, is immutable. Yes, the oft-mentioned “separation of Church and State”. How dare the PC thought police – in the (mis)education department – allow this blatant violation, one which is counter to American law and ethos!
MORE specifically, the teaching of the “Shahada” should be viewed as the last straw…the “red line”, or more aptly termed, the “green line”…at least for ANY parent who is not looking for their kiddie to submit/succumb/prostrate to Allah! Ya think?
The Shahada (Arabic: الشهادة aš-šahādah About this sound audio (help·info) “the testimony”; also aš-šahādatān(الشَهادَتانْ, “the two testimonials”)) is an Islamic creed declaring belief in the oneness of God and the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s prophet. The declaration, in its shortest form, reads:
لَا إِلٰهَ إِلَّا الله مُحَمَّدٌ رَسُولُ الله
lā ʾilāha ʾillā-llāh, muhammadun rasūlu-llāh
There is no god but God, Muhammad is the messenger of God
MIND you, if this INDOCTRINATION is not enough to get parents to rise up and scream, “no more, stop messing with our kiddies”, nothing else will!
In Revere, Massachusetts the public school district there is not only requiring students to learn about Islam but is teaching these children the Shahada or the Islamic conversion prayer. As you can see in the news reports below, one dad is rightly upset but there are also some liberals who have no problem with it (after all, it is Boston). What many of these parents do not understand is that in Islam, the simple recitation of this prayer means a conversion to Islam.
Some of the parents may scoff at such a notion but make no mistake; there are Muslims who certainly do not. In the same way that the Ground Zero mosque was intended to be about conquest, so too is forcing non-Muslim children to recite the Shahada. The local news reports do not pick up on this very significant element of the story.
As Shoebat.com reported recently, the Boston Police Department just announced the promotion of its first Muslim to Captain. While that may seem a separate issue, consider what new Captain Haseeb Hosein had to say about his plans:
As Boston police Captain Haseeb Hosein, a former science teacher and a firm believer in the power of reading, assumes leadership in Mattapan as the department’s first Muslim captain, he plans to have his officers walking not only the streets, but school hallways.
“I want my guys to go into the schools and spend 30 minutes and read” with a child, said Hosein, 52, who received his captain’s shield Wednesday in a ceremony at police headquarters. “I hate that police officers are always the bad guy. We should be an asset.”
As a Muslim, Hosein knows the Shahada and he knows that reciting it means conversion. We know that he wants his officers to “read” with children. Revere, which is less than 15 miles from Mattapan, is already teaching children Islam’s conversion prayer.
Can we not conclude that Hosein would have no problem with his officers helping children recite the Shahada?
Millions of students in public schools don’t understand fractions or pronouns at even a basic level but students in the oceanfront Boston suburb of Revere, Mass. are taking the time to learn all about Islam — in the most embarrassingly shallow and cheerleading way imaginable.
Part of the textbook prints the Muslim Call to Prayer,according to Boston NBC affiliate WHDH.
“I bear witness that there is no God but Allah,” it says.
The textbook portion also reverently celebrates Muhammad’s life.
“Muhammad never expected to change world,” the admiring, rah-rah textbook reads.
“Muhammad later tended sheep on the dry hills like many young Arabians,” the text explains. “Later he became a successful merchant and married a wealthy widow. However, he felt as though something was missing in his life, so he went on a retreat.”
The founder of Islam was “upset about the cruelty of his people,” the text also optimistically explains. They “killed baby girls.” They “treated their slaves unkindly.” And “Muhammad had a strong sense of right and wrong.”
One local parent, Anthony Giannino, is upset about the textbook’s treatment of the Muslim religion.
IT gets worse…and this is just a sampling of the indoctrination through a so-called “cultural” textbook:
THAT being said, children, the next generation, are the MAIN targets of Islamic leaders and their collaborators on the left. This is a fact. Not only that, but when jihad comes into full bloom on the streets of America – sooner than most realize – it is also a fact that they will head for America’s jugular: it’s kiddies!
David Gaubatz: As we all know children are the future of the world. Sadly most Muslim children are being taught hate and violence from an early age. Most people think Muslim children are only being taught this ideology in Palestine and throughout the Middle East. The vast majority of mosques in America teach hate and violence. There are several references in the Quran that inform Muslims to never take Christians and Jews as protectors and friends. The Sunni manual Tafsir Ibn Kathir is an excellent reference to what children are being taught in Islamic schools.
When I was in Iraq I had the opportunity to interview several captured Al Qaeda members. I asked them what type of future attacks America would endure. The answer over and over was that the hearts of Americans would be attacked. They explained that this meant the American children would be attacked because they are the hearts of the American people. These terrorists said the attacks would not necessarily be physical attacks, but rather a slow indoctrination in U.S. public schools and universities. The indoctrinating would include the Islamic ideology is peaceful and even as non-Muslims they support Islam and the Muslim people…..
PATRIOTS, parents and concerned citizens, do you believe the above penetration came out of nowhere and just magically appeared? Hope not.
SO what else have Islamic “stealth” jihadists accomplished relative to America’s school children? Much more than you think.
IF anyone believes that the likes of Obama Inc. is NOT totally involved in said infiltration and penetration – through their Brotherhood links within the administration and outside its confines too – well, go back to sleep. It is just easier for some to close their eyes and muffle their ears. Yet for the rest….
Before we get to the recent “news” re Dearbornistan, let’s review a backgrounder on AG Holder’s Islamic putsch via the kiddies; a tag-team approach with Barack HUSSEIN Obama.
There’s a new controversy in Texas involving the online public school curriculum called CSCOPE, which already has been the subject of heated debate and state legislative hearings.
This is the dreadful situation facing America’s kiddies, even as one of the most well-known private schools, Exeter Academy, trucks with terrorists, Obama’s surrogates are hide nor hare in interfering. Why? As if.
Full Disclosure: a few close acquaintances/business associates graduated from the halls of Philips Exeter Academy (the subject below) back in the early 1980’s, and just a few years before its Islamic infestation. These individuals are at the top of their chosen professions, therefore, the influence many of its graduates yield is considerable, even if not in the Presidential arena.
‘Academy That Produced Three Presidents Now Terrorist Breeding Ground’
MY word, even the IRS has jumped onto the bandwagon, in the rush to Islamize children, and this time in Europe! American taxpayers are funding overseas indoctrination! Did you know this?
Now isn’t this amazing on the close of tax season. It seems that the US taxpayers have a surprise. Some of the tax money from the US is not going to pay the National Debt. It’s not going to pay for the money taken from Veteran Pensions to pay for illegal immigrants in the United States. In fact, the money you pay to the IRS may not even be going to welfare. Instead your tax dollars are going to pay for the Islamification of Europe!
According to an investigation by WND and the Gatestone Institute many of the United States taxpayers are paying for a program overseas to teach children about Islam and attempts to convert the impressionable into becoming Muslim.
According to their research, the program directly targets the Czech Republic and is paid for by a grant from the US Embassy in Prague. The program called “Muslims in the Eyes of Czech Schoolchildren,” admits fully to being funded by US Taxpayers through the US Embassy. The grant is a branch of the Anna Lindh Foundation, the European Commission Representation and the Prague library. The program is fully supported by the Czech Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports according to the coordinator and lecturer Klara Popovova.
IF the readers take away anything from this commentary’s thesis, suffice to say this: a double-prong plan is in place, one which is supported by Islamic leaders in America (aided and abetted by Brotherhood front-arms, throughout the Mid East & Africa) and their Marxist counterparts.
INTRINSICALLY, they are aiming, arming, for “soft” stealth jihad and frontal attacks. In effect, they are marching through America’s (and Europe’s, but let’s not digress) public (and some private ones too) schools, inch by inch leading the kiddies toward Islam’s “ways”. Basically, capturing their young and impressionable hearts and minds.
ON the other side of the Islamic thrust, the frontal one, there is no doubt that jihadists are lying-in-wait and will aim for “soft” targets first; schools and gathering places for children, when the signal to pounce is given.
BE prepared for them….
