One Month Since 43rd Anniversary of Robert F. Kennedy Assassination

Last month, June 6th to be exact, marked the anniversary of the assassination of New York Senator and Presidential candidate, Robert F. Kennedy. It has been 43 years.

43rd Anniversary to Robert F. Kennnedy's AssassinationBobby Kennedy was shot by a 24-year-old Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, three times in the face with a .22-caliber rifle. He died 26 hours later in the hospital. Sirhan said his was a political motivation protesting Senator Kennedy’s support for Israel during the Six-Day War. The same day he passed away, the Los Angeles Times reported the story disclosing the Palestinian’s motives writing:

“When the Jordanian nationalist, Sirhan Bishara Sirhan, allegedly shot Kennedy, ostensibly because of the senator’s advocacy of U.S. support for Israel, the crime with which he was charged was in essence another manifestation of the centuries-old hatred between Arab and Jew.”

An original conviction resulting in the death penalty was eventually changed to life imprisonment. Today, Sirhan is confined at Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, California. He lives in a cell in solitary confinement.

Naksa Day, the United Nations and Why Obama Hasn’t Taken Us Up On That Standing Mud Bath Offer?

Sunday marks ‘Naksa Day’ – the 44th anniversary of the Six Day War – and in anticipation of violent protests and terrorist activity similar to what went down ‘Nakba day‘, the alert level is raised.

United Nations Security CouncilUnder duress to strip the Jews naked of their geographical armor, the Jewish State issued a caveat that any attack on its sovereignty will not be tolerated. The message was directed as much at the United Nations as at Syria and Lebanon. The former country up to its neck in blood, engaged in genocide vicious enough to blemish its humanitarian record forever in the future annals of history. The latter, run by Mikati and Nasrallah of the Hezbollah militant gang.

Meanwhile, when the General Assembly is called upon to recognize Palestine as a new sovereign nation state, in September, the resolution is expected to receive the required two-thirds majority among the 192 members in the world body. However a single veto in the 15-member Security Council could derail the move. Well, the Obama administration has not only hinted about a possible veto but is lobbying European countries not to vote for the resolution.

President Obama.

What is your point?

What’s your problem with us?

You are absolutely ridiculous. If the Palestinians get a state it needs to come through a UN partition, like the one that permitted the Jews a state in 1947. Islamic fundamental terrorism will always be Islamic fundamental terrorism. Had the Palestinians a state, then declared war on Israel, you could not blame Israel for defending itself. Yet, without a sovereign state like Lebanon or Syria, when the Palestinian Occupied Territories (POT) declare war on Israel, which they do on an almost weekly basis, well, then the Jews are a grizzly pariah state where 500,000 settlers control millions of ex-Jordanians out in the desert.

Give the Jews a break; give the people a break!

Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton, because of what she claimed was a tight-schedule, denied a meeting with Israeli Foreign Minister, Avigdor Liebeman, during the 50 year anniversary of the OECD, last week in Paris.

Lieberman traveled to Paris on Wednesday accompanied by Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, to take part in a conference of economic organization which Israel was invited to. Lieberman has not met with Clinton since May 2009, when he first entered office.

President Obama, busy chasing around Qaddafi like a mad man has not been to either Israel or the POT, since he took office!

Obama, there is a mud bath waiting for you!
