Schlussel in UK’s Spectator, Wall Street Journal, Today

By Debbie Schlussel
Today, I’m quoted by the great Spectator columnist Melanie Phillips in the UK’s Spectator:

Americans are aghast at the spectre of Islamist violence in Europe. They had better look to their own. Debbie Schlussel reports that, earlier this week,

four to five Muslims viciously attacked Rabbi Uria Ohana in Brooklyn, New York, while shouting, ‘Allahu Akbar.’ Rabbi Ohana, assistant head rabbi of Chabad-Lubavitch of Massachusetts, was about to get on the F-Train at Fourth Avenue and Ninth Street in Brooklyn. The young Muslim assailants grabbed rabbi Ohana’s yarmulke (skullcap), and when he went to them to get it back, they beat him and shouted, ‘Allahu Akbar.’


This attack on an orthodox Jew in the US follows the murderous onslaught on the Mercaz Harav yeshiva in Jerusalem.

Read the rest.
Thanks, Melanie, for publicizing this important story about Islamofascism’s infestation of America. FYI, Melanie Phillips is the coiner of the term “Londonistan,” the title of her excellent book about Islam’s takeover of Britain.
Then, there’s my Letter to the Editor published in today’s Wall Street Journal about Hezbollah. It was cut almost in half. Read the full version here (and also background about what I was writing about). Here is what ran in today’s Journal:


Suicide Bombers and Revisionist History
Mr. Kendall claims that Hezbollah got its “start struggling for justice for the Palestinians.” He could not be more wrong. Hezbollah, originally known as “The Organization for the Oppressed of the Earth,” was founded in response to Palestinian occupation of Lebanon. At that time — from the mid-1970s until the early 1980s — Palestinians captured and destroyed Shiite (and Christian Lebanese) property and killed the sons and raped the daughters of the Shiites of Southern Lebanon who are now the nucleus of Hezbollah in Lebanon. South Lebanon — today’s Hezbollah sub-state of Lebanon — was then known as Fatah-land, as the PLO dominated it by force — allied with a brutal leftist Lebanese militia, the Morabeitoun, headed by Ibrahim Kleilat. That is why Hezbollah was founded — not in support of the Palestinians who oppressed Hezbollah’s members. To assert otherwise is to engage in myth and revisionism.

Read the other three letters to the editor on this topic, as they are all very well written and make excellent points.

I wish some of these women that yell about Islam would tell other women to get married relatively young and have children this would go a long way to helping the situation. No country with a 1.5 per women birth rate is not going to have serious problems Muslim or not. I know so called “Orthodox” Rabbi’s have no problem with Jewish women staying single and then viciously slander Jewish men because they are single when what the heck can they do. And then the women have this extremely harsh view of Jewish men and men in general with the only one’s they care about are Rabbi’s (who have much less problems then the average guy out there) and never criticize them even though most of them are corrupt to the core. But let’s blame Islam for our low birth rates. Yeah, that will solve our problems. Debbie again shows such Elitism behavior at times in my opinion.
Also the Wall Street Journal while good in some regards is not good regarding the fact that with Bear Sterns going how about them talking about how our banks are being bought by Muslim’s and Arab’s. Their support of these multinational corporations is making us vunerable as well. Michael Savage has spoken about Bear Stern’s and the Gov’t LIBERAL BAIL OUT. I still can’t understand how Debbie can not mention this issue with Michael Savage and CAIR and claim’s to really care about Radical Islam. He has said that no Jewish group has given him support which again says a lot for how disgusting MOST Jewish Rabbi’s are towards men.

I, or rather the Lord, beseech you as Christ’s heralds to publish this everywhere and to persuade all people of whatever rank, foot-soldiers and knights, poor and rich, to carry aid promptly to those Christians (and Jews, updated) and to destroy that vile race from the lands of our friends. I say this to those who are present, it is meant also for those who are absent. Moreover, Christ commands it.
– Pope Urban II

Debbie, let me know when your name pops up in the NYT wedding announcemnets. The rest of your efforts are excellent and a big mitzvah, but it doesn’t seem to convince the majority of people who prefer fantasies to fact or Muslims to Jews. It’s a rare person who converts to reality, but meanwhile it’s gratifying for me to confirm the existence of a pretty Jewess who thinks like me.

I’ll concede that BearStearns should have been allowed to fail w/o gov’t help.However,the entire financial sys. (worldwide) is a house-of-cards because of excessive greed.BS would of been the trigger to cause a complete meltdown.
There will be more failures to come until all the excess is un-wound from the sys.The FED will be forced to act again & again most likely thru the rest of ’08.We are in serious uncharted territory at present.
The FED will fund the bailouts by printing more & more money which means the posibility of hyper inflation to come.Of course the taxpayers will have to bend over & crab their ankles as usual.It disgusts me too,but is the only way to prevent a financial calamity.

The Euros are toast. See how the Swiss Foreign Minister wore a chador to a meeting with Ahmadinejad. I suppose if she met Hitler, she would have worn a swastika armband.
