Osama's Last Words
around my home just like I need two more holes in my head!"
2. Thought of the day: Five cheers for waterboarding!
Bin Laden versus Yassin
Op-ed: Hypocritical world that slammed killing of Hamas' Yassin now
lauds bin Laden hit
The flurry of international reactions to the killing of Osama bin
Laden by the American army provides Israel with a great opportunity to
demonstrate the double standards applied against it by so many in the
Western world and elsewhere. All one has to do is compare the
reactions of major institutions and leaders with those after the death
of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin. This leader of the Hamas terrorist
organization was killed by Israel in 2004. He was directly responsible
for many lethal attacks on Israeli civilians including suicide
On Monday, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told reporters that "the
death of Osama bin Laden, announced by President (Barack) Obama last
night, is a watershed moment in our common global fight against
terrorism." Yet after the killing of Sheikh Yassin, then-UN Secretary
General Kofi Annan said "I do condemn the targeted assassination of
Sheikh Yassin and the others who died with him. Such actions are not
only contrary to international law, but they do not do anything to
help the search for a peaceful solution."
The now-defunct UN Commission on Human Rights condemned "the tragic
death of Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in contravention of the Hague Convention
IV of 1907." At the Security Council, the US had to use its veto power
to prevent condemnation of Israel.
After the bin Laden killing, the leaders of the European Council and
European Commission stated that his death made the world a safer place
and showed that terrorist attacks do not remain unpunished. Following
the Yassin killing, then-EU Foreign Policy Chief Javier Solana said,
"This type of action does not contribute at all to create the
conditions of peace. This is very, very bad news for the peace
process. The policy of the European Union has been consistently
condemnation of extra-judicial killing."
British Prime Minister David Cameron congratulated President Obama on
the success of the bin Laden assassination. Cameron considered it a
massive step forward in the fight against extremist terrorism. Former
Prime Minister Tony Blair also welcomed bin Laden's demise.
However, the killing of Sheikh Yassin was called by the then-British
Foreign Secretary Jack Straw "unacceptable" and "unjustified." The
official spokesman of then-Prime Minister Blair condemned the
"unlawful attack" and observed: "We have repeatedly made clear our
opposition to Israel's use of targeted killings and assassinations."
A case of anti-Semitism?
France's President Nicolas Sarkozy hailed Bin Laden's killing as a
coup in the fight against terrorism. He called President Obama,
praised his determination and courage and all others who had pursued
the head of al-Qaeda for 10 years. Sarkozy added that the two heads of
state had agreed to continue the just and necessary fight against
terrorist barbarity and those who support it.
Yet after Sheikh Yassin's death, a French Foreign Ministry spokesman,
Herve Ladsous, said, "France condemns the action taken against Sheikh
Yassin, just as it has always condemned the principle of any
extra-judicial execution as contrary to international law." Foreign
Minister Dominique de Villepin declared that "such acts can only feed
the spiral of violence."
German Chancellor Angel Merkel said at a recent press conference, "I'm
glad that killing bin Laden was successful." She also called it "good
news." Then Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer had stated after the
killing of Sheikh Yassin that "the German government is deeply
concerned about the development."
Russia released a statement regarding bin Laden which the Voice of
America quoted as saying that retribution inevitably reaches all
terrorists and that Russia is ready to "step up" its coordination in
the international fight against global terrorism." After the Yassin
assassination, a foreign ministry spokesman said that Moscow was
deeply concerned about the situation.
President Abdullah Gul of Turkey declared that the killing of bin
Laden was a message for terrorist organizations all around the world.
Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan had called the killing of
Yassin "a terrorist act" and said that "the assassination was not
This comparison gets even more meaningful when seen in the context of
the definition of anti-Semitism as regularly used in the European
Union. It was prepared by one of the EU agencies. It gives examples of
the ways in which anti-Semitism manifests itself with regard to the
State of Israel, including the following: "Applying double standards
by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other
Israel could considerably improve its public diplomacy by using the
comparison of the two killings and other comparisons of events which
occur with great frequency to stress such double standards. This is
one of the many ways that Israel can fend off at least part of the
unjust criticism against it.
Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld has published 19 books, several of these deal
with anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism

10 Leftists Who Need Condolences on the Death of their Hero Osama bin Laden
Posted By Megan Fox On May 4, 2011 @ 2:55 am In Email,Feature,Main,The
Feminist Hawks' Nest | 5 Comments
Inevitably, following the general pleasure at the news the Osama bin
Laden is finally residing in Hell, it will come to light that certain
members of the Left are quietly miserable over his passing. They are
the ones for whom evil is not really definable, terror is in the eye
of the beholder and America is always wrong. In other words, most of
the hard Left and virtually the entire media elite. That's a pretty
big list, so I thought I should narrow it down to the ones who will be
the most despondent over this delightful news for America.
In accordance with the new tone of civility, NRB suggests you send a
personal sympathy card to each grieving individual on the list. You
can click here and email this highly appropriate condolence with just
the right touch of maudlin snark. (Contact information will be
10. Patty Murray
Dubbed the "dumbest woman in congress" (although I think Cynthia
McKinney is suing for the rights to that title), Patty Murray once
lauded bin Laden's kindness and generosity in comparison to the
callous and brutal America. No, really.
Trying to explain why Osama bin Laden might be popular in the Arab
world while Americans were not, she said he was "building schools,
building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities,
building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely
grateful. We have not done that."
Nah, America hasn't built any schools or roads or infrastructure,
unless you count the 133 health clinics built by Americans at a cost
of $345 million or the water treatment plants now serving almost 2
million people that cost the American taxpayers $1.6 billion or the
new sewer system benefiting over 5 million people to the tune of $254
million. Nope, according to Murray we just bomb stuff and bin Laden
is the real hero.
To send Senator Murray a condolence card, post on her Twitter page
(@PattyMurray) or her Facebook page and show her you care. After all,
one man's brutal dictator is another man's fuzzy-wuzzy love-muffin who
9. Medea Benjamin and the staff of Code Pink
Medea Benjamin, founder of Code Pink and famed champion of the Muslim
Brotherhood and bloody die-ins, is searching for meaning in the death
of Bin Laden.
Let us give meaning to the death of Osama Bin Laden by putting an end
to the violence. Sign the petition to President Obama: Enough — Let
the Peace Begin.
Yes, let's search deep within ourselves to find meaning in the death
of a madman who seriously had it coming. That sounds like a ginormous
waste of time. While the Left is doing that, I'm going to clip more
coupons to help offset the skyrocketing inflation. I can feel the
What confounds me about Benjamin is for all we know she might have
been working for bin Laden! But since the word "traitor" has
absolutely no meaning anymore she's free to traipse about the globe
stabbing her country in the back. She has hand delivered a letter from
Hamas to Obama. She has hand delivered $600,000 to militant Muslim
insurgents responsible for killing American soldiers. She's a courier
for terror! Despite her machinations to appear glad that bin Laden is
dead, I would bet it's just the opposite.
You can send your deepest sympathies to Benjamin on her Twitter
account (@medeabenjamin) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Cynthia McKinney
Former congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, most famous for socking a
Capitol Hill police officer in the face for asking her for ID, has a
long history of embarrassing herself and her nation. But while her
"Jerry Springer Show" antics were kind of funny at home, it got ugly
when she took the show on the road.
While trying for the second time to get through an Israeli blockade to
deliver "humanitarian" supplies to Hamas (which usually amounts to
large amounts of cash that gets used to buy more rockets to shoot at
Israeli children) McKinney was arrested. From an Israeli prison, she
penned this laugh-riot.
Zionism has surely run out of its last legitimacy if this is what it
does to people who believe so deeply in human rights for all that they
put their own lives on the line for someone else's children. Israel is
the fullest expression of Zionism, but if Israel fears for its
security because Gaza's children have crayons then not only has Israel
lost its last shred of legitimacy, but Israel must be declared a
I agree that Israel is a failed state; they failed to rid us of
McKinney. I was hoping for a life sentence. Considering McKinney's
hatred of Israel, she has lost a kindred spirit in bin Laden in the
fight against the evil Zionists.
Send your e-greeting of sympathy to McKinney via Twitter or Facebook.
7. Michael Moore
Michael Moore famously stated emphatically after the towers fell that
there is no terrorist threat. And since Moore doesn't believe in
terrorists, it's not surprising he finds himself very concerned over
Bin Laden's burial at sea. He tweeted his disapproval.
OBL buried at sea according 2 Muslim tradition. Yes most Muslim
funerals I've attended, we got in a chopper & tossed the deceased in
Personally I think he should be glad the special forces bullets
weren't dipped in bacon fat. But more sensitivity is called for in
this situation because as unhinged as Moore is, there's no telling
what will push him over the edge. Moore is torn up over his favorite
non-terrorist biting the dust and he deserves some sincere

6. Roseanne Barr
I know you've probably gone out of your way not to see or hear from
Roseanne Barr since she butchered the national anthem. Me too. But if
there was ever a woman crying out for help, she's it. Christian
charity simply means nothing if you can't reach out to the hideously
lost and so with that in mind, someone should try. Roseanne has gotten
more and more bizarre over the years. Recently, she claimed the
Israelis were shooting rockets at themselves.
I think rockets are being fired by your own sources, since less than
ten israelis have been killed by them. You are bullshitting the world
as you pocket money made from arms sales, along with bibi and your
agents in Hamas. step down all men in power!
These kind of theories could have been written by Bin Laden himself.
For all we know, that's where she got them! Maybe she was a big
YouTube fan of his. I guess we'll never know. Her recent tweets
suggests she's glad he's dead, but I don't think she really understood
him. If she had, she would realize he supported all the same things
she does like the destruction of Israel, lying about Israel and
ginning up hate stories about Israel. And I heard he liked to dress up
like Hitler and bake little replicas of Jews in his oven too.
Send cards to Roseanne on Twitter (@TheRealRoseanne).
5. Helen Thomas
Jobless and now losing a fellow anti-Semite, Helen Thomas must be in
the depths of despair. Thomas has never made any secret of her hatred
for Israel and support of Hamas and can always be counted on to give
the Hezbollah point of view, as the late, great Tony Snow so
wonderfully pointed out. The final straw that sent Thomas to the
unemployment line was her caught-on-video statement regarding the Jews
and her view they should return to Germany and Poland.
Unfortunately for us, Thomas couldn't be persuaded to return to
Lebanon from where her parents immigrated. With the depth of feeling
Thomas has in her shriveled little heart for members of terrorist
organizations, bin Laden's death is sure to hit her hard.
Send your sympathy greetings to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Jane Fonda
Considering how much Jane Fonda hates America and Americans at war, as
evidenced by her traitorous activity in Vietnam including but not
limited to posing with anti-aircraft guns that killed Americans and
lying about the conditions in which our prisoners of war were kept,
we're fairly certain Fonda is a sad sack upon hearing a fellow
America-hater is dead. People who hate America tend to stick together.
Not only does Fonda love the commies, but she's BFFs with Code Pink's
Jodie Evans who personally traveled to Afghanistan and met with
leaders of the Taliban! Good gracious! It makes one dizzy just
thinking about the audacity of these dopes.
Fonda is also a Palestinian sympathizer who once scheduled a meeting
with Yassir Arafat. And even worse:
[J]ust days after terrorists had killed some 3,000 people on 9/11,
Fonda said that instead of retaliation, the U.S. should try to
understand the "underlying reasons" behind the murderous attacks.
The retaliation must be tearing her up inside.
To comfort Fonda in her time of sorrow, send your e-sympathy greeting
to her on Twitter (@JaneFonda).
3. Noam Chomsky
It's time to play "Guess Who Said It!" Your choices are Noam Chomsky
or Osama bin Laden.
We should not forget that the U.S. itself is a leading terrorist state.
If you guessed bin Laden, you would be wrong. Chomsky, a
self-described anarchist and general America-hater is probably working
furiously on a manifesto indicting the United States for breaking
international law by killing bin Laden right now. Chomsky has been
highly critical of the American response to Islamic terrorism and
frequently downplays the 9/11 attacks:
Chomsky dismisses the atrocity of 9/11 as one that was dwarfed in
magnitude by Bill Clinton's 1998 missile attack on a factory in the
Sudan following the bombings of two U.S. embassies by al Qaeda, in
which no one was injured.
Telling an MIT audience of 2,000 that the U.S. military response
against the terrorists in Afghanistan was a calculated "genocide" that
would cause the deaths of 3 to 4 million Afghanis, Chomsky denounced
America as "the world's greatest terrorist state." He also traveled to
the Muslim world to repeat the charges of U.S. genocide and terror to
millions in Islamabad and New Delhi.
Not surprising. It's likely that Chomsky has a pretty big soft spot
for bin Laden after the murderous terrorist praised him as "one of the
most capable" citizens of the United States. He could definitely use
an e-card and probably some tissues.

2. Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn
Pentagon bomber and attempted cop-killer Bill Ayers joined Code Pink
in their protest in Gaza against the Israeli blockade when Hamas was
lobbing mortars into Israel. It's pretty interesting how connected
everyone on this list is. I bet they've all been to the same cocktail
party a time or two where they tell Bush jokes and plot to subvert the
Constitution. Ayers and his terrorist wife Bernardine Dohrn must be
singing the bin Laden blues. He did what they had plotted
unsuccessfully to do. You can't tell me they weren't pleased as pie to
watch the Pentagon go up in smoke. These are the same people who
thought Charles Manson, who randomly and brutally killed a pregnant
Sharon Tate, her husband and their friends for no reason other than he
is a complete psycho, was a freedom fighter.
"First they killed those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room
with them, then they even shoved a fork into the victim's stomach!
Wild!" In greeting each other, delegates to the war council often
spread their fingers to signify the fork.
Ayers is famous for equally alarming statements.
Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring
the revolution home, Kill your parents.
Osama bin Laden is clearly a kindred spirit with these two American
terrorists and I assume, much like their unwavering love for communist
dictators, bin Laden won't be left out of their list of "greats."
To send your regards, contact Ayers and Dohrn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
1. Louis Farrakhan
Often called the craziest bastard on earth (okay, maybe just by me),
Louis Farrakhan tops the list of those who are mourning the death of
the last craziest bastard on earth. (It is also important to note that
Farrakhan and Bill Ayers live in Obama's Chicago neighborhood.
Coincidence? Or have we at last located the doorway to Hell right in
the heart of Hyde Park? Somebody alert George Noory!)
Now that bin Laden is dead, Farrakhan can take his place in the
outrageous Jew-hating category.
Some of you think that I'm just somebody who's got something out for
the Jewish people. You're stupid. Do you think I would waste my time
if I did not think it was important for you to know Satan? My job is
to pull the cover off of Satan so that he will never deceive you and
the people of the world again.
Losing a soul-brother like bin Laden is going to leave a serious hole
in Farrakhan's pool of resources for new material against Jews.
Luckily, he still has his alien friends.
You can reach out to him via Twitter (@TheOfficialHMLF).
Leave your suggestions in the comment section for other leftists who
could use our comfort and sympathy as they mourn the death of their
terrorist hero, Osama bin Laden.
