Four news headlines jumped out at me this morning, prompting me to want to share them with you:
- Obama’s Silence May Cost Israel — The Israel National News reports that Barack Obama’s absence of any substantive statements about the armed conflict between Israel and the Palestinians has been based on the principle that “there is only one president at a time.” It also points out that Obama has not adhered to the one-president-at -a-time policy when it came to discussions of the Mumbai Massacre or the economic crisis.
- Obama Donor Caught Up in New Mexico Probe — Fox News offers a report about a prominent businessman and generous contributor to Obama’s election campaign who’s caught up in the grand jury probe involving New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson. It seems to dovetail with a post I published two days ago under the headline, Richardson Scandal ‘Shape of Things to Come’.
- Media Pumping Obama: Best Dresser, Breakthrough Election, Tough on Terror — Finally, NewsBusters offers a piece highlighting the blatant media bias — call it fawning, worship or something else — evident in the coverage of the soon-to-be-44th president of the United States.
- Militant Islam Threatens Us All — This Wall Street Journal op-ed piece by former Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu offers a picture of what it’s like to face terror on a daily basis and explains how the struggle between militant Islam and modernity — whether fought in Afghanistan, Iraq, India or Gaza — will decide our common future. It is a battle we cannot afford to lose.
