Washington Post Iran’s alleged assassination plot against a U.S. diplomat should have both parties up in arms Opinion by Hugh HewittContributing columnistThe Politico report on Sunday about a possible Iranian plot to kill the U.S. ambassador to South Africa, Lana Marks, should have been a blockbuster coming out of the Middle East. But it has been overshadowed by the breakthrough in relations between Israel and the Arab world, superintended by President Trump and his team.The White House signing ceremony for the agreement called the Abraham Accords, with Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates normalizing relations with the Jewish state, was a historic moment and merited all the attention it received. Yet the Politico story, and its implications, deserve plenty of discussion too.“The Iranian government is weighing an assassination attempt against the American ambassador to South Africa, U.S. intelligence reports say, according to a U.S. government official familiar with the issue...

HAMAS, CAIR, AND THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD The Secret Plot to Destroy America By Ilana Freedman Center for Security Policy Press Introduction Hamas  in  the  Middle  East  has  been  a  practitioner  of  violent  Islamic  terrorism for  three decades. Its  ferocious jihad against  Israel has been  the  cause of  thousands of deaths on both sides. The presence of Hamas in  the  United States, however, has been less open and its mandate has undergone  a transformation. Its presence here, and the threat it poses to America, have been debated, disputed, and denied for decades.   In the quest for truth, exposing the real and current threat that Hamas  poses to America is difficult at best. Even establishing the very existence of  Hamas in America is problematic, because in the United States, Hamas is a  ghost  organization,  hiding  behind  well-guarded  veils  of  secrecy,  and  protected  by  those  considered  ‘respectable’  representatives  of  the Muslim  American ...

  The Killing of a Nuclear Scientist May Save Countless Livesby Richard KempNovember 30, 2020 With unfailing predictability, EU external affairs spokesman Peter Sano as well as other European Iran-appeasers rushed to condemn the targeted killing on November 27 of Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. In doing so they exhibited shocking disregard for the death, destruction and suffering likely to be inflicted by the totalitarian Iranian regime utilising the pernicious expertise of Mr Fakhrizadeh.From across the Atlantic they were joined by, among others, former CIA Director John O. Brennan, who described the killing as "state-sponsored terrorism" and "a flagrant violation of international law". Yet Mr Brennan was in the White House Situation Room in 2011 when the US launched an operation to kill Usama bin Laden on Pakistani sovereign territory. Presumably he was not whispering into President Barack Obama's ear that SEAL Team Six were violating international law.As Obama's counterterrorism...

Clarion Project State Department: American Kids Need to be Educated on China Threat New report says attempts to challenge China are being undermined by anti-American educators A new State Department report warns that the anti-American influence in higher education is undermining U.S. efforts to counter the China threat. The report, titled “The Elements of the China Challenge,” was drafted by The Policy Planning Staff under the Office of the Secretary of State and warns that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is triggering a “new era of great-power competition” in which the CCP not only aims to be at the top of the “established world order,” but also seeks to revise it with China’s “authoritarian goals and hegemonic” ambitions being at the center of a new focus. The report  gives a brief history of the CCP and its 20th-century Marxist-Leninist inspirations. It also outlines it’s vulnerabilities, including but not limited to...

  The Jerusalem Post Pakistan's Deep State Support For Terror On Full Display – opinion Islamabad and the Pakistani people have become collateral damage due to malicious acts of terrorism perpetrated by their deep state and its surrogates By ANIL TRIGUNAYAT Twelve years ago, on November 26, 2008, 12 well-coordinated attacks and shootings were carried out for four days by 10 Pakistani terrorists against innocent civilians in Mumbai. One hundred and seventy-four people, including several foreigners, were killed and more than 300 were injured. Wounds on the national psyche are still alive. It was the 9/11 moment for India. Ajmal Kasab was caught and eventually hanged in 2012 after due legal process, but he left a trail of evidence and information pointing to the complicity of Pakistan-based terrorist groups and his handlers there. Although the Pakistani political leadership did condemn the attacks and offered full cooperation, no real progress has...
