Thanks to Michael Ledeen at PJTV, we now have some additional insight into why there's been so much more controversy over Israel's decision to continue settlements in Jerusalem and it has to do with a close personal friend of Adolf Hitler.

He was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and one time leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, a militant Islamic group formed in 1928 after the fall of the Ottoman Empire. His name was Amin al-Husseini and there are countless photos of him meeting with Adolf Hitler during WWII. You can even read the minutes from a meeting between Hitler and Husseini on November 28th, 1941.

During that meeting, Husseini wanted Hitler to announce a formal alliance with the arab Muslims. In an apparent strategic decision, Hitler decided he wanted to hold off until after the Nazis conquered Russia, which never happened.
Once Germany had forced open the road to Iran and Iraq through Rostov; it would be also the beginning of the end of the British World Empire. He (the Fuhrer) hoped that the coming year would make it possible for Germany to thrust open the Caucasian gate to the Middle East. For the good of their common cause, it would be better if the Arab proclamation were put off for a few more months than if Germany were to create difficulties for herself without being able thereby to help the Arabs.
Now, courtesy of Michael Ledeen at Pajamas Media, we learn that as part of the construction being undertaken by the Israelis in Jerusalem, the apartment where Husseini lived after WWII is targeted for demolition and the Muslim community seems to have a problem with it.

In that video, Ledeen references a Washington Post article written by Glenn Kessler that makes reference to this particular controversy involving the Shepherd Hotel (pictured), the place Husseini stayed.
The United States had previously objected to the project, which would be built on the site of the Shepherd Hotel, the former home of the late Haj Amin Husseini, a former mufti, or Islamic law scholar, of Jerusalem. It is now owned by Florida developer Irving Moskovitz.
Try imagining the outcry from any civilized society if anyone objected to the demolition of a home once occupied by Hitler. Concern for the preservation of an apartment in which Amin al-Husseini once lived is no different and no less despicable.

An interesting side story to all of this is that one of the very few Muslim converts to Christianity who is speaking out about the dangers of Islam is Walid Shoebat, whose paternal grandfather was a good friend of Amin al-Husseini. Here is the relevant portion of Shoebat's bio found on his website:
Born in Bethlehem of Judea, Walid's grandfather was the Muslim Mukhtar (chieftain) of Beit Sahour-Bethlehem (The Shepherd's Fields) and a friend of Haj-Ameen Al-Husseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and notorious friend of Adolf Hitler.

Walid's great grandfather, Abdullah Ali Awad-Allah, was also a fighter and close associate of both Abdul Qader and Haj Amin Al-Husseini, who led the Palestinians against Israel. Walid lived through and witnessed Israel’s Six Day War while living in Jericho.
It would seem logical that people like Shoebat are the ones Americans should start listening to with much greater frequency if they are to have any hope of identifying the enemies who want to destroy us.

Jeffrey Lord has a new piece in the American Spectator on Jobsgate, the percolating scandal involving 30 year Navy veteran, Retired Admiral, and current U.S. Representative Joe Sestak (D-PA). In February, he admitted to a talk show host that the White House offered him a job to drop out of his primary race with Arlen Spector for the upcoming election for the Pennsylvania Senate seat.

Since then, Sestak has said nothing but it was his answer to that one question that has caused Robert Gibbs to stonewall multiple times over the course of weeks.

In his latest piece, Lord goes in an interesting direction; he goes right to the core of something that should guide all of Sestak's decisions - his honor. Lord describes Sestak's reaction to the logical follow-up question, that sought to get him to reveal what job was offered and by whom:
Silent, adamantly so, he will say nothing more beyond the fact that he was offered a job by someone in the White House, something that multiples of highly qualified and knowledgeable people have now suggested to be quite possibly a federal crime.

Focus again on that second line from the "Honor Concept" as presented by the US Naval Academy on its website. Of its cadets -- the future officers of the Navy -- it insists that:

"They tell the truth and ensure that the full truth is known. They do not lie."
With Robert Gibbs not having been asked about this scandal since March 16th - which is befuddling in itself because that answer only raised more questions than it answered. It also served to potentially implicate Gibbs himself if something criminal took place.

Lord goes on to draw some extremely compelling comparisons between the tactics of this White House an those found in "The Godfather" and the bat scene in "The Untouchables". It seems to fit quite well, especially when you consider that Barack Obama's ideological mentor - also from Chicago - did an internship with Al Capone's gang, telling Playboy Magazine all about it in a 1972 interview. In fact, this exchange Alinsky relays about a conversation he had with Frank Nitti, Capone's #2 man who went by the moniker of "The Enforcer":
Once, when I was looking over their records, I noticed an item listing a $7500 payment for an out-of-town killer. I called Nitti over and I said, "Look, Mr. Nitti, I don't understand this. You've got at least 20 killers on your payroll. Why waste that much money to bring somebody in from St. Louis?" Frank was really shocked at my ignorance. "Look, kid," he said patiently, "sometimes our guys might know the guy they're hitting, they may have been to his house for dinner, taken his kids to the ball game, been the best man at his wedding, gotten drunk together. But you call in a guy from out of town, all you've got to do is tell him, 'Look, there's this guy in a dark coat on State and Randolph; our boy in the car will point him out; just go up and give him three in the belly and fade into the crowd.' So that's a job and he's a professional, he does it. But one of our boys goes up, the guy turns to face him and it's a friend, right away he knows that when he pulls that trigger there's gonna be a widow, kids without a father, funerals, weeping -- Christ, it'd be murder." I think Frank was a little disappointed by my even questioning the practice; he must have thought I was a bit callous.
According to Barack Obama's hero, Saul Alinsky, the latter was thought to be "callous" by Al Capone's enforcer. I'd expect nothing less from a man who dedicated his book to Lucifer. Should we be all that surprised if his protege uses similar tactics politically as President of the United States?
