ISIS should be decapitated next

King Henry VIII beheaded Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard in the 1500s. The charges were specious but it was Henry’s country. Priests prayed for Boleyn and Howard on the scaffold. There was no video, only a huge turnout.

ISIS released a video showing the hideous decapitation of American journalist Steven Joel Sotloff on Sept. 2. Experts suspect Sotloff was murdered on or around Aug. 16, when a faceless man in a black cloak beheaded US journalist James Foley. We’ll never know for sure.

NATO is dead

NATO has lost the capacity and the will to defend its member states, even in the face of blatant Russian aggression. It’s so much easier to blame Israel for genocide. I. The strength of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, founded after WW II to stop an aggressor from ever again threatening the democracies of Europe, is based on one basic concept: an attack on one member is an attack on all.

President Obama is outraged at the beheading of journalist James Foley by ISIS — it’s a “cancer,” not a religion, says Obama. It must be wiped out. Selective outrage, we would say. Hamas murdered its own people in the public square this week with their heads covered. Woe unto us if a beheading is “worse.” As if cold-blooded murder is divisible.

Jewish Voice for Peace, or for destruction?

How to Win Friends and Influence People is apparently one of the books that the local members of Jewish Voice for Peace never read. In a counterproductive attempt to get JEWISHcolorado to change its viewpoint on Hamas’ war on Israel, JVP entered the JEWISHcolorado building under false pretenses. Once inside, claiming to need a bit of help, JVP quickly facilitated the entry of many others and staged a demonstration.
