In The Middle of Nuclear Negotiations, NSA Scraps Iran and Hezbollah As Terror Threats
From the Times of Israel Times of Israel: …”Apparently because ISIS poses a bigger threat than other major terrorist groups, an annual report delivered recently to the US Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats, after years in which they featured in similar reports.”
HT Katie Pavlich at Townhall: “Is ISIS a threat? Absolutely. Should we align ourselves with or appease Iran because of their work against ISIS? Absolutely not.”
“As a reminder Hezbollah, funded by Iran, is the largest terror organization in the world. Before 9/11, Hezbollah, not Al Qaeda, was responsible for the majority of U.S. terrorism deaths, including the 1983 bombings of U.S. Marine barracks and U.S. embassy in Beirut, in addition to a series of attacks in the ’80s. Hezbollah is also responsible for countless attacks on Israel. In 1992, Hezbollah, with help from Iran, bombed the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires. In 1994 they bombed the Jewish community center in the same South American city. Those are just a handful of examples that don’t even account for the thousands of rockets Hezbollah has launched into Israel throughout the years.”
In another sign of political correctness gone horribly wrong, the American flag has been banned from being displayed at UC Irvine.
“In a push for what has been described as cultural inclusion, the student government at UC Irvine has voted to ban the display of all flags — including the American flag — in an area of the campus.”
As posted at the website “Campus Reform” the Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) passed the Bill that was authored by Social Ecology Representative Matthew Guevara who accuses all flags, especially, the American flag, of being “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”
“[T]he American flag has been flown in instances of colonialism and imperialism,” the bill continues, arguing that “symbolism has negative and positive aspects that are interpreted differently by individuals.”
Great comment there in response to this vote: “Time to remove that offensive American currency from their pockets too”.
Meanwhile….San Francisco City Hall proudly flies the Chinese flag.
