Islamism and America

Family Security Matters 14 September 2011
By Michael Mukasey

My deep thanks to the Manhattan Institute and especially to Judith Miller, for organizing this program, and for giving me the privilege of participating in it. Thanks also to Lawrence Mone for that kind introduction.

The enormity of what was done to us on September 11, 2001, deserves all the solemnity and scholarship being used to mark the tenth anniversary this week, but I think that serious distortions can result from treating 9-11 as a transformative event if doing so suggests that that was Islamism’s first confrontation with the United States, or that the country’s reaction to what happened that day somehow changed in some fundamental way and irrevocably the way our government deals with our adversaries.

StandWithUs to Demonstrate against UN Durban III Conference

ha0lam.de 14 September 2011

[Los Angeles] A StandWithUs-sponsored "circus” will expose the shocking hypocrisy of the United Nations when the UN puts on its third "Durban conference” against racism on September 22 in New York City. The circus and clowns StandWithUs is sponsoring will appear in front of UN headquarters on Sept. 22 from noon until 2 PM, just when the three-ring circus known as the Durban III conference is under way. Leading democratic nations have severely denounced the previous two Durban conferences, held in 2001 and 2009, for demonizing Israel and for flagrant anti-Semitism.

"One good way to counter the Durban conference’s hypocritical travesty of human rights is with parody. Sometimes humor reveals the deepest truths. There is no possible rational response to the Durban conference’s perverse distortions. They are too divorced from any reality. In fact, they turn reality upside down. We plan to fight the UN ‘clowns’ with actual clowns that expose their hypocrisy and perversity,” explained Roz Rothstein, CEO of StandWithUs.
