Russia, Iran Winners From 
Weak, Symbolic, Empty US Strike on Syria
{ rickwells.us } ~ General Jack Keane is among those who claims to believe that Assad actually did deliberately attack his own people with chemical weapons in Douma... and that simply sending another message that the US is unhappy with him wasn’t enough. He describes the strikes on Syria as “very weak.” That’s to be expected. Keane says that our response, in view of the fact that we already sent a message last year, “should have been decisive, it should have been consequential.” He says, “As a result of this strike, we still leave them with multiple chemical storage sites and production capabilities. We didn’t put a single glove on an airplane or a delivery system or an airfield.” Keane says, “Assad made this calculation. He’s trying to secure Damascus. He’s been fighting for it for months. The Russians have been bombing every single day.” Even with round-the-clock bombing the rebel forces were still holding out so Assad made a calculated  decision to use chemical weapons, knowing that the US might strike in retaliation.” Six hours later the rebels were eliminated...  https://rickwells.us/russia-iran-winners-syria/

"Why Do They Think Islam Is a Religion of Peace?"
by Raymond Ibrahim
{ gatestoneinstitute.org } ~ In one of the most brazen attacks on Egypt's Christians, a Muslim man slaughtered a Christian bishop in broad daylight... Security camera footage captured a man with a large butcher knife chasing and stabbing Bishop Samaan Shehata—in the head, neck, and torso—in the streets of Cairo on October 12. According to eyewitnesses "the assailant had seen Shehata in his car, forcibly stopped him, ordered him out and then started to stab him in the neck and torso. Shehata fled, and the attacker followed him into the warehouse and finished his attack there with several blows to the head." Then, while standing over his victim, "the assailant used the bishop's blood to form a cross on his forehead." It took 90 minutes for an ambulance to arrive, and "the bishop was alive for half an hour after being struck and could have been saved if the ambulance had arrived timely." Some people acquainted with the murderer said that Ahmed Saeed Ibrahim had recently "begun praying in the street, shouting loudly and calling Christians infidels." As for a motive, one report said, "he had decided to kill any Coptic priest, purchased a dagger, and lay in wait for one to pass by, in a street leading to the local church." His father "is more of a terrorist than his son," added one woman; he "used to stop children on their way back from church and say, 'You are multiplying, may Allah destroy your houses and burn you all. You have filled our neighborhood with filth.'"...  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/12161/why-do-they-think-islam-is...

IDF destroys ‘longest and deepest’ 
Hamas cross-border attack tunnel 
by STUART WINER 
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ The Israel Defense Forces on Sunday announced it destroyed a sophisticated Hamas attack tunnel... leading from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory, over the weekend. The tunnel was the “longest and deepest” underground passage discovered in Israel thus far, according to Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman. It passed under the border in an area where Palestinian protesters have recently clashed with security forces, the army said. A military spokesman said the tunnel was dug by the Hamas terrorist group and was connected to a “kilometers-long” network of other passages under the Gaza Strip...

Western strikes won’t change the bloody course of Syrian history 
by RAPHAEL AHREN
{ timesofisrael.com } ~ A little over a year ago, US President Donald Trump ordered a military strike against Syria... In retaliation for a chemical weapons attack on civilians, the US Air Force fired 59 Tomahawk missiles at the regime-held Shayrat Airbase in Homs. Israeli leaders and analysts hailed the strike, arguing that even this limited use of force would change the course of history. Former US President Barack liar-nObama had declared the use of chemical weapons to be a “red line” but then did nothing when President Bashar Assad crossed it in 2013, with chemical weapons strikes near Damascus that killed 1,429 people.  liar-nObama’s inaction — perceived as weakness — emboldened Syria, Iran, and other negative elements in the Middle East, many Israelis had long argued. Had liar-nObama even sent a single jet to Damascus to drop a bag of water on Assad’s palace, history would have taken a different course, a top Israeli security official posited last year...  https://www.timesofisrael.com/western-strikes-wont-change-the-blood...

Syrian media: Explosions at largest Iranian base in Syria   
by jpost.com 
{ jpost.com } ~ Mixed and contradictory reports emerged from Syria Saturday night over a mystery blast that rocked an Iranian base located on the outskirts of Aleppo... The initial reports coming out of Syrian media was that the base was hit by unidentified aircraft, with some reports attributing the attack to Israel. Later, reports said that the explosion was caused by an accident at the facility. The Iranian base, located in the Jabal Azzan region south of Aleppo, is the largest in the country. Hezbollah media sources denied the reports and said that the explosions at the site resulted from explosives detonating in a warehouse...

In America, the Holocaust Is Losing Its Shock Factor 

by Jordan Candler:  Some Americans joined Israel and its allies Thursday in solemnly observing Holocaust Remembrance Day. To commemorate it, the White House issued a proclamation in which the president “hereby ask[s] the people of the United States to observe the Days of Remembrance of Victims of the Holocaust, April 12 through April 19, 2018, and the solemn anniversary of the liberation of Nazi death camps, with appropriate study, prayers and commemoration, and to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution by internalizing the lessons of this atrocity so that it is never repeated.”

               That last part — “so that it is never repeated” — is particularly noteworthy. We noted already that only some Americans commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day. As it turns out, the Holocaust is slowly losing its shock factor among Americans. According to The New York Times, “For seven decades, ‘never forget’ has been a rallying cry of the Holocaust remembrance movement. But a survey released Thursday, on Holocaust Remembrance Day, found that many adults lack basic knowledge of what happened — and this lack of knowledge is more pronounced among millennials, whom the survey defined as people ages 18 to 34.”
               All told, 31% of Americans — a number that jumps 10 percentage points among Millennials — are under the impression that Jewish victims numbered about two million, which is one-third of the true total of six million. Furthermore, the Times reveals, “Forty-one percent of Americans, and 66 percent of millennials, cannot say what Auschwitz was. Only 39 percent of Americans know that Hitler was democratically elected.”
               These revelations are partly due to anti-Jewish hostility, particularly on the Left. They’re also due to our failed education system, which glosses over certain aspects of history. Granted, the Times adds: “Despite the gaps in the respondents’ knowledge, the study found an overwhelming consensus — 93 percent — that all students should learn about the Holocaust at school. And Holocaust denial remains very rare in the United States, with 96 percent of respondents saying they believe the genocide happened.” But the lesson is clearly losing its weightiness. And the less impactful atrocities become, the less inclined people are to “never forget.
               That term also gets thrown around routinely when it comes to 9/11. But based on the vehement uproar leftists in America display when Republicans advocate policy prescriptions that would avert terrorist acts, it’s evident that the significance of that fateful day is also beginning to wane. That’s exactly how history repeats itself and how presumably safe societies end up, quite literally, on the ash heap of history.   ~The Patriot Pos

ALERT ALERT

Romney Handed Shock
Defeat By Own State’s GOP

Mitt Romney is back in state politics, this time in Utah instead of Massachusetts. However, conservatives in The Beehive State aren’t exactly warming up to the 2012 Republican standard-bearer quite the way many people expected they would.

After finishing second in votes at the state GOP convention, Romney will now face a primary in his run for the Senate seat being vacated by Orrin Hatch, Fox News reported.

At the convention in West Valley City on Saturday, Romney polled just behind state lawmaker Mike Kennedy.

Kennedy captured 50.18 percent of the delegate vote compared to Romney’s 49.12 percent.

That means the two will face off in a primary on June 26 to determine who will represent the GOP this fall.

Romney, the first Mormon to head a major party ticket, is considered an extremely popular figure in Utah and was widely expected to have an easy path to the upper chamber.

In a hypothetical matchup with Democrat Jenny Wilson, at least one poll showed Romney up by 46 percent. That’s, uh, slightly more than the margin of error.

However, among party loyalists, Romney isn’t exactly viewed with unalloyed fondness.

The 2012 presidential nominee was always known for being decidedly moderate, particularly on issues of immigration and global trade. There was also the fact that he ran a campaign so bumbling that it almost made Michael Dukakis look good.

And then there was Romney’s war of words with Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, which likely led many to perceive he secretly wished Hillary Clinton would take the Oval Office.

Trump would later consider Romney as a secretary of state pick, although how serious the president-elect was about appointing him is something we’ll likely never know.

While your average Utah Republican is unlikely to let these slights affect their vote, hardcore party activists probably don’t want another RINO who isn’t exactly known for his rapport with the president in the upper chamber of Congress, no matter how famous he may be.

For his part, Romney tried to put a good spin on the humiliation.

“I’m delighted with the outcome. Did very, very well,” he told KSTU. “On to a good, important primary ahead. This is terrific for the people of Utah.”

Dude, you just lost to a guy nobody has ever heard of. However, Kennedy was happy with the results, and unlike Romney, he had good reason to be.

“I’m a candidate with a compelling life story and a unique set of life circumstances I’d like to use to serve the people of Utah,” Kennedy said.

I have no idea what that story or those circumstances are, but I think the key point here is that he’s not Mitt Romney. If he wants to win, that’s pretty much what he should be focusing on. I can see the billboards now. “Mike Kennedy: Not Mitt Romney.” “Mike Kennedy: He didn’t borrow Ward Cleaver’s haircut.” “Mike Kennedy: Because Utah deserves a senator whose favorite food isn’t buttered noodles.”

Utah’s electorate tends to be less conservative than convention-goers, so it’s unlikely that Romney won’t be the GOP nominee for Senate. However, that’s not a 100 percent certainty — and it wouldn’t be the first time he’s lost to a Kennedy.

What do you think?
