I found this on Pat Dollard and I agree completely. It is time the american public wakes up and realizes what we are fighting for our survival. The jihadis want to establish an Islamic Caliphate world wide we need to realize that Jihadis are just as bad as Nazis. 

President Bush Compares Iraq, Afghan Wars To World War II

I have to agree….

Were in a fight for our freedom…

Same fight, different enemy….

All I have to ask is….

When can we drop 2 nukes on Tehran to end it for the win?

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado (CNN) — President Bush told the 2008 graduating class at the U.S. Air Force Academy on Wednesday that the “only way America could lose the war on terror is if we defeat ourselves.”

Speaking on a cloudy day at Falcon Stadium, the president compared the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to America’s earlier conflicts, particularly World War II.

“Our nation is once again contending with an ideology that seeks to sow anger, hatred and despair: the ideology of Islamic extremism,” he said.

“In today’s struggle, we are once again facing evil men who despise freedom and despise America and aim to subject millions to their violent rule.

“We assumed this obligation before,” he said, referring to the rebuilding of Germany and Japan after World War II, a conflict that saw the loss of more than 400,000 American lives. Watch more of Bush’s speech »

“Germany and Japan, once mortal enemies, are now allies of the United States. And people across the world have reaped the benefits from that alliance,” he said. “Today, we must do the same in Afghanistan and Iraq. … We’ll lay the foundation of peace for generations to come.”

But today’s wars differ from those of the past, Bush acknowledged, and not only because of modern technology that allows “greater precision” in warfare.

One challenge is that in the past, in Germany and Japan, the work of rebuilding took place in relative quiet,” he said.

“Today, we’re helping emerging democracies rebuild under fire from terrorist networks and state sponsors of terror. This is a difficult and unprecedented task — and we’re learning as we go.”

The measure of success in war has changed, he said.

“In the past … there were public surrenders, a signing ceremony on the deck of a battleship, victory parades in American cities. Today, when the war continues after the regime has fallen, the definition of success is more complicated.”

Nonetheless, he said, in Iraq and Afghanistan, there is a clear definition of success: when those countries are rid of al Qaeda, when they are economically viable, when they are democracies that can govern effectively and when they are strong allies on the war on terror.

“These successes will come,” he told the class. “And when they do, our nation will have achieved victory, and the American people will be more secure.

Dennis Prager on Bush’s Israel speech and Olberman’s rant

Posted by avideditor on May 15, 2008

Bush gave one of the best speeches ever in Israel today. He points out the need to confront jihadis and the importance of America supporting Israel. This seems to be pissing off the terrorist supporting candidate Obama to the point he lashed out at Bush using Marxist catch phrase. Dennis Prager does a great job talking about the issues. He starts by talking  Olbermann’s hate and lies in his most recent rant. Praguer starts playing Bush’s speech at the 4 minute point.   Listen to one of the best 15 minutes in radio.

The Western Wall has been deemed too controversial for US President Bush to visit. Instead he will climb Masada, with PM Olmert as his guide

Posted by avideditor on April 10, 2008

Reading this article’s title brought shivers down my spine. It seems as if Bush and Olmert are trying to bring the jewish people to the massacres of the past (Masada), instead of a thriving future at the western Wall the future site of the 3rd temple. In every generation they rise up against us. The jihadis are not the only ones that are trying to kill the jewish people in my opinion, Olmert and the US government policy is a bigger threat. They are a wolf wearing sheep’s clothing. They pretend they want to help the Jewish people and by pass our defenses until they are close enough to kill.

Report: Western Wall Too ‘Controversial’ For Bush Visit: “The Western Wall has been deemed too controversial for US President Bush to visit. Instead he will climb Masada, with PM Olmert as his guide.”

Haaretz reported that Bush’s aids were leaning toward the Masada fortress. The site was where Jews held out against the Roman army, but were eventually beaten and committed suicide rather than face the humiliation and torture of captivity. Haaretz mentioned the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hevron, the Golan Heights and the Western Wall, explicitly, as places deemed too controversial for Bush to visit.

The Western Wall, also called the Kotel (“wall” in Hebrew) or Wailing Wall, is the western retaining wall of the Temple Mount, Judaism’s holiest site. The mount itself is occupied by two Muslim structures and Jewish worship there is severely restricted. The Western Wall is highly symbolic as it has been the focal point of Jewish worship in the most recent return to Zion. It was approachable via a small alleyway prior to the War of Independence, was off-limits to Jews under Jordanian rule following the 1949 armistice and was liberated in the 1967 Six Day War. Among the most famous photos in Israel’s history is that of IDF paratroopers looking up at the wall with awe following their participation in the battle for the Old City. Shortly after the victory, Israel bulldozed the area around the wall, creating a huge prayer plaza.

Muslims have recently been staking a claim not only to the Temple Mount, but to the Western Wall as well. They call it Al-Burak and say the religion’s founder, Mohammad, tied his horse there during a midnight journey that took him to “the farthest mosque” – which they say is a reference to the Jerusalem mosque later given that name.

The Bushes also want to witness the Biblical prophecy of the ingathering of the exiles first-hand. White House staffers report that the Bushes are looking to meet with recent olim (Jewish immigrants to Israel) during the visit.

Bush will not be visiting Palestinian Authority-controlled areas or meeting with PA officials during his visit to Israel, but will hold a meeting with Fatah chief and PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in Egypt afterward.

Media analyst Dr. Aaron Lerner of Israel Media Research and Analysis says that the phenomenon of Bush steering clear of the Western Wall does not bode well and belies statements by Israeli officials’ claiming an improved relationship with the US due to Israel’s willingness to make repeated concessions to Fatah. “Things are so screwed up that while the Pope can visit the Western Wall in what was clearly the “Israeli” portion of his visit, President Bush can’t make the same photo op as part of his historic trip marking Israel’s 60th anniversary,” Lerner opined. “And now an example of the incredible lack of thinking on the part of whoever is working on this trip: instead of visiting places associated with Israel’s rebirth or ancient life – the idea is a photo op at a place remembered in history for the group of Jews who committed suicide rather than fall captive to the Romans.”

Dr. Lerner concluded, with tongue-in-cheek: “Then again. How appropriate. PM Olmert, who critics warn is following a suicidal path with the Palestinians, will visit Masada with Bush.”
