Obama came in as the 4th best President ever.
Hard to dispute unbiased research.
A study group recently released its findings as to the best presidents of the United States of America.
Obama has been rated as the 4th best president ever:
Reagan and 9 others tied for first, 15 presidents tied for second, 18 tied for third, and Obama came in fourth along with Jimmy Carter .
You DO realize that if the economy/real-estate market get half-way decent in nect 4 years, Obama will be on Mt.Rushmore - probably in his lifetime, right?

Give it a rest, Hasbara maven. You had a chance to turn Manchurian, err, I mean Kenyan Candidate-in-Chief into 1-term Jimmy Carter.

Your precious Mossad had a chance to Breitbartn/threaten/blackmail or otherwise just find DEFINITIVE PROOF of his (many) secrets & lies --- that even liberal MSM wouldn't be able to supress.(See: alleged private video tape and LA Times owners veto in 2008)

I mean, you guys took down JFK, RFK, Meir Kahane, Dr. Gerald Bull, John-John, Wellstone, Hugo Chavez, Nasser and lord know who else. You used to move mountanis and Islamic nuke reactors.

And neither you nor Dick Cheney boys (redundant?) could touch Barry Husseinovich Soetoro -- when everyone knew at least sdince 2004 DNC that he was The groomed star that was gonna bring you to your knees....

You have noone to blame but yourselves. That goes doubley so for Republican Party who did everything possible to lose in 2012 ---> and thus assure O's immortality.

May I ask, why do you clamor for Arabs/Muslims unity?

You want your enemies to NOT be united as much as possible, that's the idea.

Maybe once their oil (lobby) ain' so influential, once they moderate & modernize -- and freeing their better 1/2 i.e the women will go a long way toward achieving that, which is why Taliban and Co are so terrified of it.... well, then we can talk unity and peace and all those wonderful lofty notions.

Until then... let Hamas rule Gaza with more and more Gazans hating it. And let Abbas rule WB despite his expired Presidential mandate -- because he is not legitimate and more than 2/3 Palis do not like him at all.

Now Israelis/Juices, now they must unite. But then again, they/we no longer be Juices, then -- indivituality is part of the charm.

Starving "Palestinians" update: Hamas budget nears $1 billion
Oh, the humanity! "Hamas Budget Nears $1 Billion," January 1 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):

Hamas will spend $897 million in Gaza in 2013 under a budget approved Monday. The Gaza parliament, dominated by Hamas, voted for the spending.
Gaza leaders estimate the income for the year at $243 million. The rest of the money is expected to come from international aid and donations.

Despite claims of a financial crisis, the Hamas budget has continued to grow from year to year. A large percent of this year's budget –$244 million – will go to the Interior Ministry, which funds "security forces" such as the al-Kassam Battalions, recognized internationally as a terrorist group.

Many donations are not included in the budget. Qatar has pledged to spend $400 million on construction in the area, money that is not part of the official budget because Qatar will be overseeing the projects directly.

Also excluded as direct aid was money spent by the United Nations' UNRWA agency, which assists PA resident Arabs and Arabs claiming descent from those who fled Israel during the War of Independence. The group is expected to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on programs in Gaza in 2013, including food distribution, summer camps, and schools.

How many government comedians can Egypt support???

Egypt: Deputy chief of Muslim Brotherhood's political party and adviser to President says Israel will cease to exist within ten years
Looks as if he is eager to honor the Camp David Accords.

"Pundits and politicians are already ringing the alarm bells. The common refrain you hear in the US: The Middle East is being overrun with religious radicals bent on oppressing women and destroying Israel. That is nonsense, of course." -- Reza Aslan

Of course!

"Muslim official says Israel won't exist," from UPI, January 2 (thanks to Block Ness):

CAIRO, Jan. 2 (UPI)-- A senior Muslim Brotherhood official and adviser to President Mohamed Morsi warned Israel will cease to exist in a decade.
"Jewish occupiers in the territory of historic Palestine are an obstacle to the Palestinians' right of return. Anyone who can read the future can see that this project has a decade, less than a decade to go, and it is our faith that the people of Palestine can then return to Palestine," the pan-Arab network al-Arabiya quoted Essam el-Eria,n [sic] the deputy head of the Muslim Brotherhood's Freedom and Justice Party, as saying Tuesday.

Last week Erian called on Jews to return to Egypt, saying, in an interview with the local Dream TV network: "It is better for Jews to live in a country like Egypt rather than in a country contaminated by occupation.

"Every Egyptian has the right to come back to Egypt no matter what his religion. Egyptian Jews should refuse to live under a brutal, bloody and racist occupation stained with war crimes against humanity."...

They were brutally and forcibly exiled from Egypt, but why get bogged down in details?
Fucken muslim Hitlers.

France: Muslims celebrate New Year's Eve by burning 1,200 cars
"Youths" demonstrating their utter contempt for Infidel society.

"Muslims Burn About 1,200 cars on New Year’s Eve in France," from the Conservative Papers, January 1 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

Interior Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday that 1,193 vehicles were burned overnight around the country. Clashes between police and offenders in the New Year’s Eve took place in the Muslim majority districts in the city of Strasbourg and Mulhouse. About seven police officers were attacked New Years eve night.

Around 1,200 cars were burned by rioting Muslims on the New Year’s Eve in France, where the mass burning cars in the national holidays are kind of tradition among Muslim residents of the disadvantaged suburbs of immigrants.

In recent years, the celebration of the New Year and the Bastille Day (July 14) in France is often marked by mass burning cars as well. On the night of January 1, 2010, there were 1,137 thousand cars burned on the night of January 1, 2009 – 1,147 thousand were burned.

In the summer of 2010, the Interior Minister Brice Hortefeux made the decision to stop the practice of counting the demonstrators, as they claimed it only encourages the Muslim youths to commit such crimes . The current Minister of the Interior said that “the French people should know the truth.”

The American media has mostly not reported on these incidents, and when they do rarely mention their background or religion.

Wow a Palestinian State!!! Will it be like Syria where the death of 65000 citizens is greeted by the silence of Arab Muslims? Or will it be like Egypt where Coptic Christians are forcibly converted or kidnapped or raped? Maybe it will be like Saudi Arabia which denies its citizens a free press, the right to assemble and forbids freedom of religion? You would need a Mutaween to watch people, especially the woman. Or maybe the Palestinians would prefer a good old police state, like Saddam Hussein had in Iraq. He was able to slaughter thousands of Kurds and the Arab Muslims don't seem to care at all. Make sure all religious sights are desecrated- Hindu, Buddhist, Christian and Jewish. Continue the persecution of religious groups, just like in Iran or Pakistan. The important thing is to purify all of the Middle East so every drop of sand belongs to Islam. That's all that matters. That's all the Palestinians want.

"Egyptian Muslim cleric: When the Mahdi comes, all the Jews on earth will be killed"

http://www.jihadwatch.org/2013/01/egyptian-mu...

Hatred of Jews is one of the central features of islam. To hear these animals splitting hairs talking about "Zionists" v. "Jews" is sickening in its dishonesty. Their hatred has very little to do with the "palestinian cause". That is just a convenient banner that they wave in order to portray their predatory designs as victimhood. To say otherwise is a lie.

Islam is filth.

Muslims had more than 1300 years to force Copts into becoming Muslims. They didn't, and they're not about to start now. Egyptian Copts are just as bad as Muslims when it comes to freedom of religion. They aren't allowed to convert to Islam or any other religion.

And looks like you have no idea what Palestinians want or what they are fighting for. Anyway, it's not unusual for Zionists to link Palestinians to "Global Jihad" when in reality this connection doesn't exist.
