Do you blame the jews for leaving France for Israel? France is still very anti-semitic, France has way too many islamics, and France is happy to get rid of Jews.
Jews in France have long been facing hostilities from Arab immigrants in that country, and they have likewise long been looking for residences outside of France to which they can flee if the persecution becomes any worse.
It’s already “unbearable” on a day-to-day basis, according to one French Jew who prefers to keep her name a secret. She told Spiegel magazine that life in France has gotten rough for Jews: “Children are harassed on their way to school just because they’re Jews. [And once, when] I was wearing a necklace with a Star of David attached to it, someone barged into me. I said to him: ‘You ought to excuse yourself!’ All he said was that he didn’t apologize to Jews.”
In the midst of these rising tensions, French Jews are looking to Israel as a safe haven, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is quite pleased. He understands that “Israel was set up as a haven for Jews from just such threats.”
On May 5 last year, former Marine and Iraq war veteran Jose Guerena was just minding his business before police raided his Arizona home and opened fire, releasing more than 70 rounds in 7 seconds while his wife Vanessa and 4-year old son listened from a nearby closet.
Armed with SWAT gear and an armored carrier, police no knock raided the Guerena home searching for illegal drugs that were never found. He was suspected of taking part in a marijuana trafficking ring police were investigating, but was never charged with a crime and had no prior criminal history.
Guerena was declared dead when paramedics were allowed by police to arrive at the scene an hour after the shooting. An autopsy report said he was hit 23 times by police fire.
On the Richter scale of media coverage, the Guerena shooting incident scored a .0001 in interest, despite an obvious cover-up spearheaded by botched raid leader and Rush Limbaugh hater (this is the sheriff who blamed Limbaugh for the Gabrielle Giffords shooting) Pima County Sherriff Clarence Dupnik. The Huffington Post reported on Dupnik’s office changing its story several times and scolding the few media members who dared cover the story:
“The Pima County Sheriff’s Office has now changed its story several times over the last few weeks. They have issued a press release (PDF) scolding the media and critics for questioning the legality of the raid, the department’s account of what happened, and the department’s ability to fairly investigate its own officers. They have obtained a court order sealing the search warrants and police affidavits that led to the raids, and they’re now refusing any further comment on the case at all. When I contacted Public Information Officer Jason Ogan with some questions, he replied via email that the department won’t be releasing any more information. On Saturday, Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik told Arizona Daily Star columnist Josh Brodesky that he may never release the search warrants and police affidavits.”
Sherrif Dupnik was successful in his efforts to stonewall the media (the search warrants and police affidavits remain sealed to this day). Al Sharpton never descended upon the town demanding justice; the president remained mum, and outside of a few veteran based news sites, the issue was eventually completely ignored by the mainstream press.
Media coverage of the event paled in comparison to recent coverage of the shooting of an unarmed teen named Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Fla that has spurred a national firestorm and grabbed headlines across America.
The absence of media coverage of the Guerena shooting in comparison to the Trayvon Martin fiasco highlights the selective outrage and obvious bias against police brutality stories that don’t fit into the appropriate Al Sharpton racial narrative. Before news broke that Martin’s shooter was Hispanic and not white as originally reported by police, both MSNBC personalities Mika Brzezkinski and Karen Finney took to the airwaves to place blame for the shooting on conservative talk radio and Republican presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
The 26-year old Guerena served two tours in Iraq and left behind a 6-year old son in addition to the two family members who were inside the home during the time of the shooting.
Guerena’s family filed a $20,000,000 wrongful death lawsuit against Pima County Sherriff Dupnik’s office last August.

Crowder dominates this debate, countering the host at every turn and expertly articulating why “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.”
In any other country these illegal assholes would not only have been arrested they’d probably have been deported immediately.
But in the US, with a president who has no regard for the rule of law especially when he needs to get every vote he can (illegal or not) it’s OK for illegal immigrants to thumb their noses at our country by not only showing up at a protest but do so knowing no one would arrest them:
Federal authorities say they won’t deport six illegal immigrants arrested during a Phoenix protest over Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s (ar-PY’-ohs) immigration policies.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Wednesday that they determined that the protesters did not fall under “ICE’s enforcement priorities.”
Nearly 150 people were at Tuesday’s rally, which blocked a street in front of a high school.
Phoenix police say the protesters were told to leave by 5:30 p.m. A line of officers then approached the protesters in the road and took some into custody.
The six were arrested for obstructing a thoroughfare and disorderly conduct. They included two girls, ages 16 and 17, two 20-year-old women, an 18-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man.
The leftists are again celebrating! Holder and Obama having a party.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Missouri’s flag desecration law is unconstitutional and cannot be enforced, a federal judge has ruled.
U.S. District Judge Carol Jackson issued a permanent injunction Tuesday in the case of Frank Snider, a Cape Girardeau man arrested in 2009 for cutting up an American flag and then throwing it into the street.
Jackson’s ruling orders the state, its political subdivisions and its officials from “enforcing or threatening to enforce” the law.
American Civil Liberties Union attorney Tony Rothert, who represented Snider, said Missouri is among at least 20 states with laws prohibiting flag desecration.
“It’s a long-delayed victory in Missouri,” Rothert said. “The Supreme Court has been pretty clear that these statutes are unconstitutional.
The Missouri Attorney General’s Office was still reviewing the decision, spokeswoman Nanci Gonder said, and she declined further comment.
Snider was standing in his front yard in October 2009 when he tried to set fire to an American flag. Unable to do so, he used a knife to shred it and then threw it on the ground.
Court documents showed a neighbor called police and told the dispatcher, “He’s cut the United States flag up with a knife, throw’d it out in the street for the cars to run over. Now, I am a United State citizen, and I don’t like it.”
Sarah Palin: Mr. President, you’re conspicuously absent from the 2-year anniversary of your “greatest accomplishment” Too busy in his race war down in Florida?
An ESPN sportscaster makes a glancing comment about race and he’s fired.
A CNN reporter uses the word “nigger” and the liberalss are silent.
On “CNN Newsroom” Thursday afternoon, Drew Griffin of CNN’s special investigations unit used a racial slur while explaining phone call evidence from a recent case where the federal government charged three Mississippi men with a hate crime for running over a black man with a truck after severely beating him.
Griffin also compared the case to a shooting in Florida, where an unarmed black teenager was killed by a neighborhood watch leader.
“At the end of this, Deryl Dedmon is laughing with his friends and actually called on a cell phone and, pardon my language but there’s no other way to say this — ‘I just ran over that f—ing nigger,’ that’s what he said. And it was a clear-cut case of pure racial-intent murder that took place there, which is why it was so easy to apply the hate crime legislation in this case,” Griffin said. “There was no question about it, unlike the circumstances involving the case in Florida.”

I have no clue what this actually means.
(Reuters) — Iran is providing a broad array of assistance to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to help him suppress anti-government protests, from high-tech surveillance technology to guns and ammunition, U.S. and European security officials say.
Tehran’s technical assistance to Assad’s security forces includes electronic surveillance systems, technology designed to disrupt efforts by protesters to communicate via social media, and Iranian-made drone aircraft for overhead surveillance, the officials said. They discussed intelligence matters on condition of anonymity.
Iran has also provided lethal materiel that can be used for riot control, they said.
During the protests that followed Iran’s disputed 2009 presidential election — the biggest mass protests since the Islamic Republic’s founding in 1979 — Iranian authorities disrupted social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as cell phone networks.
Iran’s internal crackdown reportedly has escalated since then.
A European official said that the Iranians were providing Syrian security agencies with hardware and software that would help them disrupt efforts to organize protests inside Syria and efforts by anti-government elements to spread their message to supporters outside the country.
Officials said that Syria had also obtained some surveillance technology from European suppliers.
Bakken oilman says energy independence is possible
A billionaire oilman who is widely credited for jump-starting the Bakken oil boom in North Dakota and Montana says energy independence for the United States is no longer a pipe dream.
With the right energy policies, the United States could become energy independent within a few years, said Harold Hamm, founder and chief executive of Continental Resources, the nation’s 14th-largest oil company.
“Somebody asked me why energy independence is important,” Hamm said Thursday. “I said it might mean that your son doesn’t have to go fight in Afghanistan.”
Hamm is the youngest of 13 children born to an Oklahoma sharecropper. He developed a reputation as a successful wildcatter and then struck it big by discovering oil in places that others had overlooked.
He delivered the keynote address at the statewide meeting of the Montana Ambassadors on Thursday. In an interview with The Gazette, Hamm said modern technology such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing have helped drillers uncover major oil and gas discoveries throughout the United States.
Continental Resources helped touch off the Bakken oil boom nearly a decade ago when the Elm Coulee field northwest of Sidney was developed. Hamm still refers to Montana as the birthplace of the Bakken. Much of the oil activity moved east into North Dakota in ensuing years.
Geology has a lot to do with the rigs moving east. But activity is picking back up in Montana, with about 20 rigs operating, Hamm said.
The nation’s domestic oil production is running at about 10 million barrels per day but could climb to 16 million barrels per day within a few years, thanks to major new discoveries coming online, Hamm said.
“It depends on whether the emphasis is put on it.” Hamm said. He explained that Congress passed energy independence legislation a few years ago, but never put any resources toward reaching that goal.
Mitt Romney, the front runner for the Republican presidential nomination, tapped Hamm as chairman of Romney’s Energy Policy Advisory Group earlier this month.
“This is a whole lot of people in a whole lot of different forms of energy,” Hamm said the group. “We’ll have experts from a lot of different areas.”
He said a Romney administration would consider a wide variety of energy sources but would also emphasize increased development of domestic oil and gas.
“Everybody is concerned about the price of fuel, and basically the way to cure that is to increase supply,” Hamm said. “Supply will play a large part, and probably (a Romney energy policy) will be all inclusive, with different forms of energy.”
Last year Hamm visited the White House for a conference aimed at wealthy Americans who have pledged to donate significant sums to charity. Hamm tried to explain to President Barack Obama the revolution in the oil and gas industry that has been enabled by newer technology such as horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
Obama, he said, didn’t pay much attention, instead emphasizing the need to move toward renewable energy.
And that brings up one of Hamm’s biggest frustrations.
“I personally don’t think Washington ought to be picking what form of energy we use,” he said. “I think the market ought to do that, and the market has done a pretty good job so far.”
