Events with regard to Iran, and the likelihood that the Israelis will soon have to act unilaterally to militarily eliminate the mullahs’ nuclear bomb program, are moving quickly. With the instability this brings to the Middle East, the price of oil, and thus gasoline, is also skyrocketing. And the world is inching closer to war with the radical Islamic terrorists in Tehran.
Having arrived at the point of “Armageddon” because President George W. Bush fought the wrong wars, followed by our Muslim-sympathizing President Obama deep-sixing Israeli and American interests by not toppling the Iranian Neo-Nazis on his “watch,” we now find ourselves at the point of disaster. Just one oil field blowing up could send the world’s economy into an inexorable tailspin, more than dooming any economic recovery at home and causing a fatal global depression.
Notwithstanding Obama’s intentional inaction in the face of the Iranian nuclear threat — hinging, at a minimum, on his antipathy toward Israel, Jews and Christians — and the failure of Republican leaders to go over Obama’s head to the American people to garner support for swift military action to assist Israel — enter stage left Hollywood’s Sean Stone.
If there ever were a case for insanity in the media, it was made last week. First, none other than Fox News and CNN-dignified Sean Stone, Oliver Stone’s boy — a child with no acting ability and obviously no foreign policy credentials — to appear on “The O’Reilly Factor” and Piers Morgan of CNN, among other television venues. There. Sean Stone declared, based on his brainwashing by the Iranian regime during his recent visit to the terrorist state to film a documentary, that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad did not really mean what he said when he boasted to the world that the Nazi Holocaust never really happened and that it was, in effect, simply fabricated Jewish and Israeli propaganda to justify their Zionist claim to Palestine.
Stone then went on to say that the world should just forget about the statements of Ahmadinejad and his threats to annihilate Israel, then focus only on his and his father’s leftist view that the Palestinians are victims of Israeli persecution and that Israel should thus turn over the entire West Bank to them. And, with regard to Iran acquiring nuclear weapons, Stone quipped to O’Reilly and then to Morgan that he has no problem with it, since “it’s a republic and there are factions. And it’s very much like this country…”
So, with this being said, Stone then proudly proclaimed that he has just converted to Islam from Judaism.
Great news for the young man! He is now even more likely to be invited to the White House to help Barack and Michelle Obama feast during Ramadan, endorse the Ground Zero mosque, and hold press conferences dissing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel. He should give his Hollywood PR agent a raise.
But all humor aside, I had to ask not only why the media would allow this village idiot to have a megaphone in support of the Iranians but why our political and business leaders are not speaking up more loudly in support of Israel and joint U.S.-Israeli military action to immediately remove the deadly nuclear cancer growing daily in Iran.
Democrats are one thing. Being the leftists they are, obsessed with retaining the White House or at least the Senate in 2012, they are largely mum to Obama’s actions and inactions regarding the Iranian nuclear threat. For them, as with many others , economic sanctions are just an excuse to take no meaningful action to surgically cut out the Iranian nuclear cancer before it destroys us all. But listening to the Republican presidential hopefuls this week during the Arizona debate, I was not heartened either. What I heard was political doublespeak and prevarication — that is, insipid dishonest hypocrisy.
With the exception of isolationist Ron Paul — who, like Stone, thinks the Iranians have a right to nuclear weapons to defend themselves from us — the other three unimpressive Republican candidates pounded their chests and blamed Obama for inaction, appeasement, and his hostility toward Israel, but they never actually came out in favor of the United States participating in a swift joint American-Israeli military strike. By so doing, they sidestepped taking any responsibility for advocating what needs to be done and done quickly. Either they are afraid of being shot down by the establishment media, which is generally anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian, or they lack the conviction of their words. President Reagan, who all the Republican candidates like to falsely identify themselves with, would not have been so “cute” if not dishonest in his support of Israel. The Gipper would have said it plain and simple; “Tear down the nuclear facilities now, President Ahmadinejad, or we and Israel will tear them down for you!”
This has been the problem throughout the entire Iranian buildup to nuclear weaponry. The Republican Party, beginning with Bush’s incredibly stupid Iraq war, has been largely silent with regard to quickly removing the Iranian regime and its nuclear weaponry and merely mouths words meant for political consumption, not to produce results.
With this president, his compromised secretary of state running the “ship of state,” and a Republican party that simply plays word games with the American people, it’s no wonder we now find ourselves in this predicament. Couple these circumstances with the media dignifying morons like Sean Stone, and we now can more fully understand why the nation is on its knees and headed down for the count.
