UN Watch Asks US, EU to Protest UN Appointment of North Korea as Head of Disarmament Conference; UN Likely to Ignore Issue
UN Watch, a Geneva-based human rights group, today called on the United States and the EU to strongly protest the UN's appointment of North Korea as head of its Conference on Disarmament, a 65-member arms control forum.
“Bare months after the UN finally suspended Libya’s Col. Muammar Qaddafi from its Human Rights Council, North Korea wins the propaganda coup of heading the world’s disarmament agency,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. “It’s asking the fox to guard the chickens, and damages the UN's credibility.”
“While the UN will likely defend North Korea’s appointment as simply an automatic rotation,” said Neuer, “no system should tolerate such a fundamental conflict of interests. It’s common sense that a disarmament body should not be headed by the world’s arch-villain on illegal weapons and nuclear proliferation, notorious for exporting missiles and nuclear know-how to fellow rogue regimes around the globe.”
The UN Security Council has repeatedly condemned North Korea for launching rockets, and has imposed sanctions related to its development of nuclear weapons, ballistic missiles and other weapons of mass destruction. Earlier this month, the US Navy intercepted a North Korean ship suspected of illegally carrying missile parts to Burma.
The Conference of Disarmament reports to the UN General Assembly and is billed by the UN as “the single multilateral disarmament negotiating forum of the international community.”
According to a UN summary, North Korea’s So Se Pyong assumed the presidency yesterday, assuring the panel that he was “very much committed to the Conference.” He invited proposals to strengthen “the work and credibility of the body,” and said he would do “everything in his capacity to move the Conference on Disarmament forward.”
“All of the delegations who took the floor,” reported the UN’s summary, welcomed the North Korean’s presidency, and said that “they looked forward to his stewardship” and to working with him “to revitalize and strengthen the Conference.” Those listed as having taken the floor were Canada, the UK, India, China, Nigeria, Portugal, Iran, Myanmar, Algeria, and UN official Jarmo Sareva.
According to the UN summary of speeches, China’s Wang Qun “welcomed the presidency of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.” Nigeria’s Kayode Laro said “the presidency of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea would have the full support of the Nigerian delegation.”
In an earlier meeting last week, Iran’s Mohammad Hassan Daryaei said, “I would also like to congratulate the distinguished ambassador of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea for the assumption of the presidency and assure him of my delegation’s full support and cooperation.”
UN Watch is a Geneva-based human rights organization founded in 1993 to monitor UN compliance with the principles of its Charter. It is accredited as a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) in Special Consultative Status to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) and as an Associate NGO to the UN Department of Public Information.

The ways in which South Korea plans to respond to new North Korean provocations could easily escalate into a full-fledged war.
Foreign Confidential™ analysts are deeply concerned about such a scenario. North Korea could try to mar America's annual, July 4 Independence Day holiday with another nuclear test--the North's third detonation of an atomic device--or the test-firing of missiles, or an attack of some sort on South Korean military or civilian targets.

Iran has vowed to destroy Israel and is developing the means to achieve its evil aim--nuclear weapons and long-range ballistic missiles, including ICBMs.
Even if Iran, if it is allowed to develop its weapons of mass destruction, can be deterred from a direct strike on the Jewish State, the threat of an indirect Iranian attack on Israel, by proxy or terrorist group, will remain a real and constant possibility.
Iran has also mused openly about a "world without America."
Again, while a direct attack on the United States by Iran would be insane, the threat of an indirect and deniable hit would loom large. Iran and North Korea have developed and tested missile launch systems designed to be concealed and used aboard cargo vessels; and there is no known defense against such an attack, which could be aimed at wiping out either a U.S. coastal city or the entire U.S. power grid (Google EMP attack, or search this blog's archives accordingly).
Given the above, and in light of 9/11, the U.S. should long ago have preemptively attacked Iran from the air--waves of swift and merciless assaults--in order to (a) eliminate its nuclear and missile programs and war-fighting capabilities, and (b) annihilate the Nazi-lke regime itself, including the monstrous mullahs and their Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps. The U.S. alone has the power to end the Iranian threat--without use of nuclear weapons. Israel will have to draw on its presumed nuclear arsenal in order to utterly defeat Iran without suffering devastating counterattacks by the turbaned tyranny and Hezbollah, which is bristling with missiles capable of leveling Haifa and Tel Aviv.
So much for logic. The Obama administration has unfortunately done the opposite. Instead of attacking Iran, the administration has appeased and actually attempted to align with it in the hope of entering into a so-called Grand Bargain aimed at pacifying Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Obama's engagement will go down in history alongside Chamberlain's appeasement as a policy that sought to preserve the peace but instead made war inevitable--on the enemy's terms.

Of course, the opposite is claimed by Iran's Islamonazi maniac-in-chief, whom U.S. President Barack Obama unsuccessfully sought to engage (appease and align with) in order to pacify Pakistan (which Obama insists on pronouncing like a Pakistani) and Afghanistan (which Obama still pronounces like a Chicagoan).

OBAMA OK WITH TALIBAN TAKEOVER
OBAMA MAKES IT OFFICIAL: AQ IS ONLY ISLAMIST FOE
Utter disaster. The Taliban and Al Qaeda should have been ... annihilated ... by any and all means necessary ... including use of tactical nuclear arms ... after 9/11. Instead of destroying them, however, U.S. President George W. Bush dislodged them. President Obama has aggressively pursued Al Qaeda--killing Osama Bin Laden is Obama's only achievement--but he has narrowed the definition of the Islamist (clerical fascist) enemy to AQ only.
Worse, the Obama administration is actually pro-Islamist. Meaning pro-political Islam. With the exception of Al Qaeda (and "irreconcilable" Taliban), every Islamist regime and organization, including Iran, Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, supposed "moderate" factions of Hitlerian Hamas and Hezbollah, and Turkey's ruling party, is OK to engage (appease and align with), according to the administration.
Simply put, the President of the United States sounds like a foreigner. His pronunciation of Taliban, Pakistan, Islam, West Point--all alien (e.g. Middle Eastern). But he still pronounces Afghanistan, weirdly, like a Midwesterner.
Another problem: he's glib and unconvincing. A man who never served in the armed forces, never built or managed a business, never created jobs, never partnered in a law firm, never....
Is Anthony Weiner a secret Muslim? An expert on the Muslim Brotherhood says:
Certainly the most likely scenario is that Weiner did convert to Islam, as Abedin’s mother, a professor in Saudi Arabia, would almost certainly have insisted that he do so. Weiner has made no public statement of this conversion, but since it would almost certainly have cost him politically if he had announced it, this silence is not any indication that he didn’t actually convert.However, it is also possible, given the recent scandal involving Weiner’s apparently frequent and sexually charged contact with other women, that the rumors that the Abedin/Weiner union is a political marriage of convenience are true. After all, in 2008, Hillary Clinton was running for president. There were widespread insinuations that she was involved in a romantic and/or sexual relationship with Abedin, her ever-present personal assistant. Those whisperings persisted into Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. Abedin’s 2010 marriage to Weiner, at which Bill Clinton presided, put those rumors to rest.
In spite of obvious national and cultural differences, and disagreements over strategy, tactics, and methods--all Islamist groups, from Al Qaeda to the Turkey's ruling party, "whether they officially declare it or not, aspire for the creation of the united caliphate state of the ummah, where shariah or the rule of Quran would strictly prevail."
So says a Turkish analyst. Click here to read his essay.
Foreign Confidential™ comment: He's right, of course. And this is what makes U.S. President Barack Obama's outreach to organized (political) Islam and addresses to "the Muslim world" so dangerous and disturbing. Obama, himself Muslim-born (according to Islamic law) and -reared (as a child in Indonesia), has essentially validated an Islamist concept--namely, the idea that all Muslims constitute a nation (ummah). Obama's approach, among other things, has spurred the Islamizing of the Arab-Israeli conflict--a disastrous development for Israel.

Crippling Solar Storm - Like a Natural EMP Attack - Threatens America's Power Grid, but No Action Taken by Nation's Leaders
OilPrice.com: "A known and cataclysmic threat to the U.S. electric power grid is being largely ignored by the President and Congress. Warning events in 1859, 1921, 1989, and 2003 showed the danger that solar activity can pose to electrical power and distribution systems. Now as we move into another solar maximum, with increased vulnerabilities built into our electrical grid, the danger again looms large. In the worst case, there is the possibility of no electricity for 130 million Americans for a year or longer. The warnings have been issued, but have gone unheeded."

AQ Publishes Hit List of US Officials; Suspicious Man Apprehended Near Pentagon - Media Avoids Reporting Likely Muslim Affiliation
The move--click here for the story--is serious. But it also smacks of desperation, according to some analysts--a further sign, perhaps, that Al Qaeda has at least temporarily lost the ability to stage coordinated mass casualty attacks. Then, again, appearing weak and capable of only instigating and encouraging lone and isolated teams of jihadists could constitute a deception.

Awaiting Verdict on Charges of Training and Funding Terrorists, Indonesian Muslim Cleric Calls US, Australia 'Enemies of Islam'
INDONESIAN AUTHORITIES ON HIGH ALERT
PRESIDENT LAYS OUT LEGAL POSITION TO JUSTIFY
ILLEGAL, UNNECESSARY INTERVENTION IN LIBYA
Click here for the breaking news. If a Republican had come up with Obama's argument, the liberal media would be all over him. But the Anointed One is their man; besides, the intervention in Libya, as we all know, is really meant to create a precedent--for a future intervention in "Palestine"--on the side of the Islamists seeking Israel's destruction. Hence, the push for intervention by Obama adviser Samantha Power, a so-called humanitarian hawk and notorious enemy of the Jewish State.
The effort to topple Khadafy, an anti-Islamist dictator who had cut a deal with the West and had abandoned terrorism and weapons of mass destruction, is also about eliminating another Obama rival--for leadership of the Muslim and Arab worlds. Al Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden was the main rival--and an implacable foe, of course, of the United States. But Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a longtime American ally--and friend of Israel--was also an Obama rival.
Now it's Indonesia's turn. The increasingly intolerant, adopted homeland of Barack Hussein Obama (aka Barry Soetoro) appears to be competing with Islamist party-ruled Turkey for the same prize: Islamocracy role model. Click here for the CNN (Commie News Network) report, which will surely be discussed in the Obama White House--in depth.
It's all Islam all the time, folks, as America's first Muslim-born-and-reared, Third World-American President focuses his energy--and America's precious resources--on promoting oxymoronic Islamic democracy and "moderate" Islamism (concepts akin to Communist/Nazi/fascist democracy and moderate Communism/Nazism/fascism).
It's all about building up--and manipulating--"the Muslim world" and "the Arab Street," not saving and rebuilding your world and Main Street. Not even Wall Street, although Obama naturally needs and wants Wall Street money to win a second term (God forbid).
Daniel Greenfield: "Never again. To Jews it means a refusal to give genocidal bigots another go at them. To Obama, it means refusing to ever again have to listen to an Israeli leader explain why his country cannot commit territorial suicide in order to appease a gang of genocidal bigots. "

Reporting in May 2006 on China, Chavez, and Humala, Foreign Confidential™ -- then called China Confidential -- offered this analysis:
In Latin America, the Chinese strategy is to avoid angering Washington while forging closer economic and even military relationships in the region--historically seen as within the US sphere of influence. In terms of national leaders, the ideal partner for China is a popular--but properly cautious--center-left leader. The presidents of Argentina, Brazil, and Chile fit the mold, as does Peru's Alan Garcia, who is favored to win the second and final run-off round in his country's presidential elections early next month.Garcia's opponent, ultranationalist former army officer (and failed coup plotter) Ollanta Humala, who won a plurality in the first round, is exactly the sort of figure that China would like to avoid as it goes about its business in America's backyard. A populist demagogue, Humala is linked to a grassroots, family-run Incaist movement that promotes a racist ideology and hatred of "US imperialism."The Chinese have taken a dim view of Humala from the outset of his campaign; but his recent plunge in popularity has Beijing's attention because the fall seems to have been accelerated by Hugo Chavez. The Venezuelan leader's strident support for Humala is seen as a kiss of death. According to a recent opinion poll, only 17 percent of Peruvians said they had a positive view of Chavez, whose threats to break off diplomatic relations with the Andean nation in the event of a Garcia victory pushed Peru's outgoing government to cut ties first."China would like to have its cake and eat it, too," a former foreign ministry official in Caracas told China Confidential. "China wants Venezuela's oil, but it does not want to be overly identified with Chavez. He is a crude embarrassment--no pun intended."
Ollanta Humala has cancelled a scheduled trip to Venezuela, at least for now, and has declared that his country is a strategic ally of the United States in its struggle against drug trafficking. The president-elect has met with Peru’s leading businessmen, and it seems that the meeting has had a soothing effect on capital.Simultaneously, the lieutenant colonel asked Álvaro Vargas Llosa to travel to China, Japan, Washington and Brussels to still the financial waters, acting as a sort of provisional foreign minister. Oddly enough, the Chinese love the idea that Peru stays on the capitalist road, far from the rabid Third-World hooliganism of the ALBA alliance of nations led by Venezuela. It is always easier to conduct mutually satisfactory transactions with law-abiding states ruled by the market than with the tumultuous tribe of the unpredictable “revolutionaries.”
Is Humala's shift genuine, or is he simply playing a part--pulling Peruvian (alpaca and vicuna) wool over foreign and domestic eyes--in order to win time and calm nervous powers? Time will tell.
Is a Turkish civil war possible?
Yes. Turkey's ruling Islamist party, the AKP, which won the country's national elections but fell far short of attaining the parliamentary supermajority needed to unilaterally rewrite Turkey's military-era constitution, is determined to intensify the Islamizing trend, even as regime mouthpieces and apologists assure Europeans and Americans that the AKP remains committed to a "moderate" course.
But there are still many powerful people in Turkey--including, most importantly, men in uniform, traditional guardians of the country's secular system--who are capable of resistance. More important, nearly half of Turkey is still more secular than religiously observant. So there is a constant potential for violent conflict, contrary to the rosy reports emanating from mainstream media outlets.
Straddling Europe and Asia, AKP-ruled Turkey is a NATO member and a model, according to the Obama administration, of "Islamic democracy." Having failed to align with nuclear-arming Islamist Iran in order to pacify Afghanistan and double-dealing, nuclear-armed Pakistan, the administration is now betting on double-dealing, Islamizing Turkey to pacify Tehran's mad mullahs and their rising Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, and embattled ally, Syria. The administration believes that a Turkish-pacified Iran will in turn pacify Afghanistan and the Taliban and Pakistan ... and an even more powerful and internationally respected Turkish Islamocracy will inspire moderation among the Islamist maniacs rising up in Egypt ... and a new Middle East dominated by Turkey ... a "moderate" Islamist neo-Ottoman empire of some sort ... could influence all of Central Asia ... and serve as a sword (of organized Islam) against Russia and China .... in sync with history's moral (Islamic) arc, of course ... and ... and.... You get the picture.
And it's ugly. It's all about manipulating political Islam--the foundation and primary focus of the Obama administration's utterly failed and potentially catastrophic foreign policy.

RULING ISLAMIST PARTY WINS ELECTION BUT FAILS
As expected, Turkey's so-called "Islamist-rooted" ruling party--pro-Iran, crypto-Islamists seeking to put Muslim headscarves on every Turkish woman--won the national election. With nearly all votes counted, the deceptively named Justice and Development Party (AKP) won 50% of the popular vote and 326 out of 550 parliamentary seats. But the party needed at least 367 seats to give it the power to unilaterally rewrite Turkey's secular (military-era) constitution.
Back in the USA, the mood among Obama's pro-Islamist advisors must be one of celebration mixed with disappointment. Seeing the AKP's plan for Turkey as a model for the kind of Islamocracies they hope to install across the Middle East (and across "the Muslim world" for that matter), people like Samantha Power and Zbigniew Brzezinski would have preferred a different outcome, one that could have led to a speedier political transformation of a strategically situated Muslim land.
Barack Obama's Marxist roots were exposed and documented--and ignored by the liberal mainstream media--during the 2008 Presidential campaign.
But what kind of Marxist is he? That is the key question. Does he have a well-thought-out ideology; if so, what is it?
The answer to the above is that Obama seems to be both a postmodern (all realities are social constructs) European Third World Socialist ... an apparent admirer of Frantz Fanon, who extolled "purifying," revolutionary violence by rising-up, pre-capitalist and thus supposedly inherently noble Third World peoples acting out their destinies, in sync with history's "moral arc" ... instead of the boring, old, industrial proletariat ... and a vulgar Marxist, meaning someone who believes that the capitalist system is fundamentally unfair, that history proceeds through stages, each of which is characterized by a specific economic system and oppressive ruling class, and that workers are a fundamentally homogeneous class. Give them good jobs and they will abandon their "faith and their guns," as Obama infamously suggested during the 2008 campaign, provided, of course, that their religion is Christianity and not Islam, for the latter, according to his updated, Third World Socialist view, is the ascendant religion of the global poor, thus synonymous with the working class and underclass--the proletariat and the sub-proletariat--and the key to turning the Third World/"Muslim World" into One World.
If all that is as clear as mud, dear reader, it should be, because Obama is ideologically and philosophically the most alien and un-American President to ever inhabit the White House. Among his most influential advisors are people who feel more at home with foreigners wearing Muslim headscarves and turbans and Arab keffiyehs than with ordinary Americans wearing, say, baseball caps, or Christian crosses, or--Gasp!--Stars of David. Put simply and mildly, Obama and his henchpersons prefer the Arab Street over Main Street.
The really interesting thing is how and why much of Wall Street--so many members of the globalizing power elite, including establishment Republican (In Name Only) types--have supported Obama's pro-Islamist policies, specifically, his appeasement of and attempts to actually align with nuclear-arming Islamist Iran, Islamizing Turkey, "moderate" Taliban, and Islamism (rightwing political Islam--a form of clerical fascism) in general, with the exception of Al Qaeda and its affiliates and so-called irreconcilable Taliban. But that's another story.

Your taxpayer dollars at work--click, read, weep. More proof that Barack Hussein Obama is America's first post-American President.
In fact, it is increasingly apparent that BHO views the Oval Office as a ... stepping stone ... for leadership of "the Muslim world," the UN, global government, etc.
Al Qaeda, as reported here, has vowed to avenge Bin Laden's death. Although the terrorist organization appears to have been weakened and fractured, reports of its imminent demise are exaggerated--and too dangerous to believe. A luxury the civilized world clearly can't afford. While it is certainly possible that AQ presently can't pull off another 9/11, the group still seems quite capable of staging another (November) 26/11--meaning, a Mumbai Massacre-style swarming attack.
Coordinated assaults on city centers--soft targets--by teams of suicidal terrorists and hostage takers remains a real threat, along with the constant threat of vehicular (car and truck) and train bombings. Also still a threat: individual jihadists and teams of two or more terrorists using hands, fists and improvised weapons to take down passenger airliners.

What sickness--complete with the old UN "kissing points."
More than six decades after Israel's Arab neighbors tried and failed to finish Hitler's evil work, the Mufti's maniacs are at last willing to ... consider ... an obsolete UN scheme for a non-viable, non-contiguous Jewish State in Palestine, as reported here.
And the really sick thing is this: Leftist scum and liberal loons will praise the perfidious Palestinian plan. And Jewish traitors, collaborators, Communists, and cowards--J Street comes to mind--might even lend their support. Remember the Nazi collaborationist, Warsaw Ghetto "Jewish Police." J Street is more or less the contemporary incarnation of this evil. J Street stands ready to help with the selections--of land for surrender, Jews for deportation.
Thank God there are still Diaspora Jews who are patriotic, nationalistic, observant. If it was up to the Reform crowd there would not be an Israel in the first place.
And thank God for Bible-believing Christians--Israel's best friends.
Mark Silverberg's essay on Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood is must reading. Silverberg, an analyst for the Israel's Ariel Center for Policy Research, seems completely in sync with Foreign Confidential™. Excerpts:
Obama believes that political Islam and democratic politics are compatible with one another and that what is happening in the Arab world is a re-run of the 1989 democratic revolutions that swept through Eastern Europe. He believes that it is possible to establish European-style democracies in the Arab states, without their having to adopt Western culture or thought....Perhaps the President believes, as does his adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski - the man who suggested that the Obama Administration shoot down Israeli jets if they tried to attack Iran - that political Islam is an unstoppable force that Washington can safely ride in order to secure its Middle Eastern oil supplies, but if that is his belief, he's wrong. In the Arab world, concessions and efforts at engagement symbolize weakness, American actions (or, more specifically, inactions) speak louder than their rhetoric, and only the weak seek to negotiate. Consequently, Obama's engagement policy to Islamists in Egypt and elsewhere increases the likelihood of another Middle East war just as European concessions to Nazism led to a global conflagration.
