France’s Jewish Extermination – Vél d’Hiv – The only thing new in this world is the history you don’t know.

Haaretz has written about French president Francois Hollande’s visit to the site of one of the worst cases of collaboration with the nazis during WW2:

French President Francois Hollande’s decision to speak last week at a commemoration of the single worst deportation of Jews in Western Europe during World War II is an important step toward addressing European anti-Semitism.

On an early morning in July 1942, 13,000 Jews were awakened in their Parisian homes by French gendarmes, or soldiers. They were pushed into buses and trucks and taken to one of the most popular sporting stadiums in France. Located in the heart of working class Paris, the Vél d’Hiv was the cathedral for France’s most passionate sport – cycling.

The Jews were left in the stands of this revered velodrome to swelter in the summer heat. The glass roof had been painted dark blue as part of black-out procedures, and the windows were shut tight. A single tap provided water for the victims. Children were separated from their parents. The whole operation was carried out with scarcely a German uniform in sight.

This was French anti-Semitism organized as state action by French civil servants, police officials and other public functionaries. The Jews were later taken to German extermination camps on Polish soil. But the historic importance of Vél d’Hiv is that the horrible sequence of hatred was initiated by French citizens in the name of France.

And that is why it was obliterated from official French history for decades and why Hollande’s decision, early in his presidency, to speak about the duty to remember Vél d’Hiv is so important. A recent survey showed that 60 percent of 18 to 24 year olds in France have never heard of the Vél d’Hiv mass round-up of Jews.

The related picture I’ve uploaded is from Henri Amouroux’s book Les Passions et les Haines, which shows a scene from the urban concentration camp set up by the traitors to humanity. Incidentally, while Hollande’s visit in itself is a noble act, it’s not clear whether he’s acknowledged his father’s own collaboration with the nazis at the time, and if he condemns the shame it brings upon him.

And if he keeps up the PC tactic of even remotely calling Israel an “occupier” and excusing Islam, then he hasn’t done much to distinguish himself from Jacques Chirac, who was notorious for that.

The Obama Election Campaign Strategy on Energy Prices as expressed by Joe Biden.

In an interview with WAVY News in Norfolk VA, Vice President Joe Biden discusses Obama’s Election Energy Plan by taking credit for things Obama was not responsible for and by blaming high oil prices on Muslim Brotherhood instability that he is responsible for.

Biden claims that we are importing less foreign oil than ever before. This is because nobody is driving. There are two reasons for this: The Obama economy is so bad nobody can afford the cost of a gallon of Obama Oil that has doubled since he has come into office.

Biden claims we are producing more oil than ever before. There are two reasons for this; the first of which is because of George Bush. There was net increase in oil drilling permits approved under his administration designed to maintain a stable economy with minimal government interference and, secondly, because of new extraction technology that is getting a lot more oil and gas out of private lands Obama cannot control. Obama has had a net decrease in the approval of permits and is responsible for the closure of 1 in 5 coal fired energy plants in America. This is a fulfillment of his campaign promise to increase the price of energy with the objective to increase poverty that will create more dependent voters for his big government administration.

Biden claims we have doubled the mileage of the automobile by making them smaller, lighter and weaker resulting in more deaths from accidents in small cars in history. This is the unintended consequence of an out of control, economically destructive EPA that has become an election tool of the Democrat Party.

Biden claims we have instability in the Arab world. This is due exclusively to Obama’s weak, appeasing foreign policy as it pertains to the rise of his kindred Muslim Brotherhood, his hatred for Israel and Iran’s nuclear ambitions. All designed to drive up the futures markets for oil. Normal Americans would conclude that the best way to off set this would be to encourage domestic oil production including lifting the Obama Moratorium on drilling in the Gulf, Alaska and the Keystone Pipeline.

There is another major reason for the high price of a gallon of Obama Gas. Oil prices are pegged to the value of the dollar, which has been getting considerably weaker due to the incredible amount of inflation as a result of Obama’s printing, taxing and borrowing fiscal policies.

Biden suggest that instead of giving tax incentives to American oil exploration companies that risk their own capital to produce more oil to keep this economy stable and independent from Muslim Brotherhood owned oil, we should allow Obama to learn how to become a venture capitalist and investment banker just like his very successful opponent Mitt Romney. So far, Obama has risked and lost billions of tax payer’s money on alternative energy firms owned by his campaign donors. He has never succeeded on his investments with taxpayer’s money. Question for the Constitutional Scholars; since when did the U.S. Constitution give the President that kind of power? Shouldn’t Obama, who is a Constitutional Scholar, know this?

EDITORIAL: Islamic flag over the White House

Islamists say the Koran is destined to rule America. In fact, the Muslim takeover of the White House is not just an unfolding action plan but a directive from Muhammad himself.

In an interview Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” British radical Muslim activist Anjem Choudary made clear what he and his Islamist brothers have planned for the West. “We do believe, as Muslims, the East and the West will one day be governed by the Shariah,” he said. “Indeed, we believe that one day, the flag of Islam will fly over the White House.” He then quoted a hadith, or saying of Muhammad, as related by 10th-century Muslim scholar Al-Tabarani, that “the final hour will not come until Muslims conquer the White House.” Another version of the saying goes, “A small portion of Muslims will rise and conquer the White House.”

Libya’s liberation: interim ruler unveils more radical than expected plans for Islamic law – Telegraph

Libya’s interim leader outlined more radical plans to introduce Islamic law than expected as he declared the official liberation of the country.

Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the chairman of the National Transitional Council

 

Libya is already the most conservative state in north Africa, banning the sale of alcohol. Mr Abdul-Jalil’s decision – made in advance of the introduction of any democratic process – will please the Islamists who have played a strong role in opposition to Col Gaddafi’s rule and in the uprising but worry the many young liberal Libyans who, while usually observant Muslims, take their political cues from the West
