The Palestinian Authority must be crushed 

Palestinian Authority head Mahmoud Abbas responded to the slaughter of four Rabbis and an Israeli Druze at a synagogue in Jerusalem with letters of condolences to the murderers families while many Palestinians responded with cheers and candy. 

For over 20 years the two wings of the Palestinian Authority, al-Fatah and Hamas, have coordinated and financed acts of war and violence against Israel. The so-called "lone-wolf" murders are coordinated by the Palestinian Authority which sends funds to the murderers families. The PA is waging war against Israel and is gathering weapons in Judea and Samaria which is known to much of the world as the West Bank. 

The PA has successfully convinced much of the world that Jews should be banned from praying at the site of the ancient Temple. Abbas states that Jewish presence near the Temple Mount is "infecting" the site. The PA claim to represent "peace" is a fraud.

Israel must respond to the threat to its existence by cutting out the cancer. Israel must move tanks into Ramallah to destroy the Mukataa or the PA headquarters. Abbas and his gang of criminals must be arrested or sent into exile. The IDF must conduct a comprehensive sweep of the region in order to locate and confiscate the weapons that have been smuggled in recently.
Israel should then begin the long and difficult task of establishing peace and security for the Jews and Arabs of the region by finding and arresting terrorists and those who aid and abet them. In the long run, Israel should offer citizenship to Arabs in the region who meet certain qualifications.

No sane sovereign nation would allow such an aggressive and blood-thirsty enemy as the PA to carry out operations with impunity in their heartland as the the PA has dome for the last two decades. As long as the PA exists, and as long as the PA is able to promote the farce that is known as the "two-state solution" Israel and the Israeli people will be in grave danger.

A Ghostly Shade of Pale - Persecution of South African Whites - Faith Driven Consumer

NEW BOOK BY CHUCK MORSE: Apostles of Evolution: The Practical Result of the Evolutionary Faith
Link: http://amzn.com/B00B0O6AJU

1st guest: Merle Temple, author of "A Ghostly Shade of Pale."

Review:
The divergent elements of a Southern Gothic nightmare converge and occupy the same stage in A Ghostly Shade of Pale where all the history files on a bygone era are ripped open and rewritten. The violent and dark conflicts of a Mississippi in transition in the 1970s unfold as the players find themselves trapped in games of murder, betrayal, the macabre, and the supernatural.

Michael Parker comes of age as the tranquility of the old South is shattered by the Vietnam War, civil unrest, assassinations, political corruption, and a wave of drug abuse that brings the first war on drugs to his front door. A chain of events leads him to become an unlikely player in a game of international intrigue and a clandestine struggle for the soul of America. He leaves Ole Miss to enter a world he does not understand as an agent for the Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics where he encounters Fredrick Hammel, a ghostly pale sadist and Satanist who suffers from albinism and psychosis. With eyes so red they appear to bleed, Hammel becomes Michael's obsession and tormentor as he quotes the Satanic Bible and leaves a trail of bodies across the South.

Mississippi’s crop duster airfields become launching pads for smugglers hired by rogue elements of intelligence agencies to smuggle guns into Central America and to return with drugs to finance black operations, shaping what they call the "Real America." They employ Fredrick to manipulate protests against the war and as a contract assassin. They realize too late that his loyalties are not to them or to the communists he also manipulates as a double agent but to the voices in his head that speak to him incessantly.

An uneasy and complex alliance between these shadowy figures, organized crime bosses and corrupt politicians form a matrix where Fredrick indulges his madness, slimy Mississippi politicians nurture their deviancy, and snipers ambush Michael and his agents on frozen fields of regret. A deadly game of cat and mouse threatens the life of the woman Michael loves, loses, and finds again as she washes down black beauties with champagne in the seamy Memphis nightclubs of the Dixie Mafia.

Parker, a modern paladin in search of just causes and dragons to slay, is a cop-philosopher commenting on the world in which he travels as he awakens at the age of twenty-six to find that the whole of his life—his notion of right and wrong and of good and evil—was all a lie.

The plan to alter America filters down to and corrupts the system at all levels and claims the lives of those who could never know or imagine the origin of their demise. It all comes unraveled in the madness of Fredrick and the conflicted state police agent who unwittingly becomes the fly in the ointment to machinations he cannot begin to grasp until he is forced to fight for his life and the lives of those he loves against enemies seen and unseen.

AUTHOR CHUCK MORSE SAYS THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION IN THE ISRAEL-ARAB CONFLICT IS DEAD

AUTHOR CHUCK MORSE SAYS THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION IN THE ISRAEL-ARAB CONFLICT IS DEAD AND THAT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S OUTRIGHT HOSTILITY TOWARDS ISRAEL IS LEADING TO WAR
CONTACT:

BOSTON, MA - April 16, 2010 - Author Chuck Morse, in his timely new book "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism" released this week by World Net Daily Books, claims the Obama Administration's naive and aggressive push for a two-state solution in the Israel-Arab conflict is threatening the security of Israel and jeopardizes what peace exists today in the Middle East. "The Nazi Connection to Islamic Terrorism" is being released as President Shimon Perez of Israel announced that Syria is supplying to the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah, SCUD missiles capable of hitting any target in Israel.
Morse's new book shows how the Nazi strain of terrorism infected Arab politics in the 20th century and continues to guide radical Islam and to expand into all sectors of Arab and Islamic society in the 21st century. Morse's book provides a comprehensive look at World War II events involving the Middle East including the emergence of the Arab leader Amin al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem as a key Nazi collaborator intent on destroying Israel in its fledgling stages.
Morse said President Obama appears to be encouraging Israel's sworn enemies with his remarks and actions towards Israel, and that the Syrian military actions appear to be a direct result of President Obama's indulgence of anti-Israeli elements.
Morse contends that President Obama is the most recent in a long line of well meaning liberal western leaders who mistakenly believe appeasing aggressors leads to peace. Hitler, having been encouraged by liberal British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, worked with the Grand Mufti during the war years in developing the Muslim Brotherhood as a pro-Nazi spy network in the Middle East. Morse's book contends that the Muslim Brotherhood, which has spawned such groups as Hamas, Islamic Jihad and al Qaeda, has never been de-Nazified.
Referring to today's radical Islamists and their unwitting supporters, Morse states "their anti-Semitic Utopian world order pretensions and their virulent anti-democratic bias are philosophically in the same place as their Nazi counterparts."
Morse says further that treaties such as the Oslo Peace Initiative delivered to the world by President Clinton in the 1990s did not work and will never work. "I no longer support the Oslo process," says Morse. "It is dead. There will not be another Palestinian state west of the Jordan River.
"There are already twenty four sovereign Arab states, many of them rich in oil and natural resources" said Morse. "The Palestinian Arabs of Israel have legitimate concerns but creating another state within Israel's present borders portends national suicide for Israel. Israel should openly declare that there will be no further withdrawal from any territories in which it now resides and that its borders are set for all time" said Morse.
"Palestinians in Israel should receive dual citizenship in both Israel and their respective regional cantons. Israel should invest in those cantons towards improving the quality of life for the Arab residents. It should be declared openly and unapologetically that Israel is a Jewish state, and that Israel should first and foremost promote and protect its Jewish identity."
After two thousand years of exile, the Jewish people have re-established sovereignty in the lands promised to their forefathers in the Bible. The voices of Muslim moderates who have supported the modest and proper aspirations of the Jews of Israel have too often been silenced by radicals. It's time for Israel along with moderate Muslims to stand up for what is right and what is fair. "The free world is confronted once again with a gathering world struggle for existence that threatens apocalyptic proportions just as it was during the emergence of the Nazis," Morse added.
Chuck Morse is an accomplished author of several books dealing with issues affecting Israel. He is a renowned radio talk show host where he co-hosts "The Fairness Doctrine" along with Dr. Patrick O'Heffernan in his home region of New England and was a candidate for US Congress in the 4th District of Massachusetts in 2004.

Frank's opponent Morse goes to Washington

    • By Morgan Kelly, Standard-Times correspondent 
      Posted Apr. 25, 2004 @ 12:01 am
      Updated Jan 13, 2011 at 8:31 AM 



      WASHINGTON -- On his last day in the capital Chuck Morse who is running against Massachusetts Democrat Rep. Barney Frank as an independent seemed pleased and content that he had gotten everything Washington had to offer political contacts and financial support.
      Considering the poor attendance at a fund-raiser for him the night before and the daunting task ahead of him Mr. Morse is probably a bit of an optimist.
      A talk-show host at WROL-AM in Boston Mr. Morse is confident that he will appeal to voters in Southeastern Massachusetts yet admits that he is a political novice taking on an entrenched leader of the Democratic Party.
      "This is a David versus Goliath race. Everybody knows that" he said.
      Mr. Morse said he wants lower taxes for businesses and does not believe gays should be allowed to marry. "It's not a matter of belief it's a matter of observation" he said but added that if a gay couple has children they should have access to the insurance and custody rights of straight couples. Although he was against the Vietnam War he believes Iraq was invaded for the right reasons but he admits that it is a "big mess."
      At his Washington fund-raiser April — hosted by the Traditional Values Coalition a Christian political group Mr. Morse explained that he is running because it's time Rep. Frank had a "vigorous opponent."
      Held in a townhouse a few blocks from the Capitol only two people braved the rain to attend One was Martin Waugh a medical consultant for the Christian Seniors Association and the other was James Lafferty the coalition's consultant who worked in the Reagan administration.
      Mr. Morse was not distressed. He spent the day meeting people. "I'm in the friend-making business down here" he said. The next day he said with some sense of relief "A lot of people e-mailed me saying they couldn't make it because of the rain but they're still willing to help."
      Mr. Lafferty met Mr. Morse in 2002 when he came to Massachusetts pushing for a state constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage. At that time he appeared on Mr. Morse's radio talk-show and said he liked him immediately.
      "When people know Chuck is running against Barney Frank they like him" Mr. Lafferty said "and when they hear what he says they like him even more."
      Even though Mr. Morse holds a position that is not traditionally conservative it doesn't seem to bother his supporters.
      Mr. Morse personally opposes abortion but he said "it shouldn't be banned. That's not practical. ... It should be an informed choice." Mr. Waugh was initially surprised to hear such an answer from a conservative but later said "He was great. Very fluent and in form; he didn't back down from his position at all."
      "I'm less conservative than I thought I was" Mr. Morse said laughing. "Obviously as a talk-show host you have to be a little more bombastic. You say things you wouldn't as a politician but I still stand behind them" he said later.
      Mr. Morse comes off as more than just a savvy talk-show host; he seems to know what he's talking about. Although his only college education is an expository writing course he took at Harvard Extension School Mr. Morse said "My eight years of broadcasting and interviewing professors and intellectuals qualifies as my college education."
      Although he's a registered Republican Mr. Morse 47 who grew up in Quincy and now lives in Brookline with his wife and daughter was once a Democrat. He explained that he and his wife "are the kind of Democrats" who have secretly voted Republican since President Reagan. But he and his wife didn't register Republican until he decided to run for office.
      "My family they're all Democrats but the party left me a long time ago" he said. "I kept a Democratic label out of cultural reasons" he said.
      Ben Kilgore 54 Mr. Morse's campaign manager and a former Boston Globe reporter is also an ex-Democrat. He served for seven years as deputy press secretary to Boston Mayor Kevin White. Their shared disillusionment with the Democratic Party is what brought them together seven months ago.
      As Mr. Kilgore explained he read an article by Mr. Morse entitled "We Can Pay for the War in Iraq" in which he says that Congress can pay for reconstruction by scaling back the federal bureaucracy.
      "I thought ' God in the name of public policy we can get him as a responsible candidate'" Mr. Kilgore said. The former reporter who runs a small public relations firm in Groton Mass. approached Mr. Morse last October about running.
      Mr. Morse said he doesn't personally dislike Rep. Frank. "He's an articulate and passionate spokesman for the causes he represents but I think those causes are wrong" said Mr. Morse mentioning Rep. Frank's support of increased taxes on businesses.
      But Mr. Morse's campaign obviously appeals to conservatives who would like nothing better than to defeat one of the most liberal Democrats in Congress. During his visit to Washington Mr. Morse attended a party hosted by World Net Daily a conservative online newspaper that publishes some of his articles and Citizens United a conservative political group. Attending were a number of high-profile conservatives who offered to help with his campaign.
      After the party Mr. Morse was beaming over his reception. "People are just getting to meet me but yeah I like to think a lot of people would like to see Barney Frank beaten" he said. "That's part of what any candidate does is try to get support."
      The next day Mr. Morse was still talking about the party. He and Mr. Kilgore seemed to be reinforced in their optimism about their chances.
      "For anybody stepping into (this race) it's not easy to tell people how you're going to win" Mr. Morse said. "That's what I'm here to do teach people the dynamics of politics in Massachusetts."
      Mr. Kilgore called the campaign "exceedingly unconventional" but said "I have high hopes for it nonetheless."
      The two men's chemistry makes their effort seem more like small talk between old friends than an organized political campaign. They seem to be in sync feeding off each other's thoughts and reining in each other's words.
      When Mr. Morse started talking about terrorism at great length Mr. Kilgore interrupted him "This is all on terrorism. Press secretary is intervening." Mr. Morse sat back and put his hands in his lap with a restive "All right all right."
      Mr. Morse in turn keeps Mr. Kilgore from saying things they both might later regret. Midway through a rant on Rep. Frank Mr. Kilgore said "I don't know if I should say this" to which Mr. Morse quipped "Then don't."
      Despite their casual demeanor they know they have a tough job ahead of them. Since winning his first race for Congress in 1980 Rep. Frank has never received less than 60 percent of the vote and that was in 1982. His worst showing in the last decade was 72 percent in 1996. Two years ago he ran unopposed and so far this year the Republicans have yet to field a candidate to run against him.
      "In our lighter moments we call this Ben and Chuck's Excellent Adventure" Mr. Kilgore said. "We plan to have fun at this but also play for keeps."
      "I like that Ben" Mr. Morse said. "That's a great quote."
