IRS gives special scrutiny to pro-Israel groups because Israel is such a hotbed of terrorism

Groups with actual and proven ties to terrorism, like unindicted co-conspirators CAIR and the ISN, have no problem getting 501C status and even getting invited to help the Pentagon define what language is acceptable to use for identifying terrorist threats but being pro-Israel — you know, a country that is supposed to be the U.S.’s closest ally and that has had exactly one group remotely associated with terrorism in the last 60 years (Meir Kahane’s tiny group way back when and it was considered a terrorist organization here as well)– well wow that is a serious danger.

Eliana Johnson of National Review Online reports that Cincinnati-based IRS agent Gary Muthert told the House Oversight Committee that the IRS does, in fact, subject Jewish and pro-Israel tax-exempt groups to higher scrutiny–by sending their applications to a special IRS unit that investigates them for ties to terrorism.

    Uh oh. I contributed to the JNF. I guess that makes me a supporter of terrorism.

    On the blindness of Israeli politicians!!
    Here is an article that shows that the two-state “solution” (blindness!!) obsession that is very present even among the so-called right wing such as Netanyahu!!
    Read “PM reaffirms two-state solution after Bennett says it’s at a dead-end” at http://www.jpost.com/Diplomacy-and-Politics/PM-reaffirms-two-state-solution-after-Bennett-says-its-at-a-dead-end-316858
    How could Netanyahu be so blind? And he is not alone, in fact he represents the majority of the Israeli politicians!!

    I was very sad to hear about your mother’s current serious health problems. I sent a prayer to G.od asking Him to help her. I hope she will recover if possible.
    But life on earth is a transition I believe. I know it is a leap of faith to believe this way, especially in the era in which we live with technologies, science at a high level, and so on .
    One thing is sure, your mother will always be there through you. That is the miracle of transcendence. Remember that. More, her soul is and always will be. And that is the miracle of life in action, an indirect proof that the divine does exist and manifest Himself through life, through the miracle of consciousness and even through the miracle of our soul (a notion that is much more difficult to acknowledge as being true).
    And it comes again back to children! We transcend death through our children. It is true for our parents when they leave earth and it is true for us when we leave and our children are what remains of us.
    Therefore, if it is possible for you, Yael, the best gift you could give to yourself and to your mother is to have a child of your own one day.
    In the meantime, I hope G.od will hear my prayer and intercede to help your mother recover from her current serious health problems.

      Wipe Out, your comment is comforting and I agree that we do transcend death through our children. Thank you for your kind words!

    On the President of Israel, Shimon Peres and his 90th birthday.
    Read “Video: Happy Birthday, Mr. President – and Thanks for Oslo” at http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/169051#.UcAdWpzNmw0

    To all the Israelis reading this blog, this article should interest you.
    Read “Viaeuropa to build Israel fiber optic network” at http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4393226,00.html

    To be Democrat or to be Republican, that is the question? Well, someone answered it and he is a very special case, as he is a Black American who moved from being a Democrat to being a Republican. His reasons for making the switch are interesting.
    See “Black Democrat abandons party of ‘slaves’ – Louisiana senator explains move to GOP” at http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/black-democrat-abandons-party-of-slaves/

    Me, if I was American, I would not be Democrat or Republican, I would simply vote for the party that I believe would help the best Americans and the USA prosper! That is that much of a politician that I am!!
    Same for another country that I love (apart from the USA), Israel. I am not a leftist or a rightist, I am for the people who I believe would help the best the Israelis and the State of Israel prosper!!

    And, in the case of Israel, I would surely NOT give my vote to any blind Israeli politician who would promote the creation of a Palestinian state inside the State of Israel!! No thank you, not another bogus Palestinian state, this time inside Israel!!
    Jordan and Syria are both already Palestinian states, bogus states, simply because there is no people belonging to each of these two states; these two states have been filled with Muslims who moved from surrounding countries into these two countries over the years. A legitimate state needs two indispensable ingredients:
    1) a people who has historically lived in this state for centuries.
    2) a land that historically is part of this state and that is linked to a specific people long time ago.
    Syria and Jordan do not meet this definition. These two states were created by the former powers in place to assuage the demands of particular countries of the past, in this case the Muslim countries where most of the petrol originated (Saudi Arabia, etc.) and therefore had a lot of influence on pressuring the main powers to create bogus Muslim states on parts of the land of Israel that belongs historically to the Jewish people.

    I missed something. Whats wrong, Lynne?

    • Lynne says :

      Hi, Tiger Mike! Have you started your new domestic route yet and training? I hope that all is going well with you. I seem to have a medical mystery 🙂 My last scans showed presence of suspicious lymph nodes, so I had tests done locally and was referred to MD Anderson Cancer Center since I had treatment here two years ago, and there was concern that it was not effective. Good thing that I am at MD Anderson, because it appears that my diagnosis might have been wrong. The specialist that I am seeing says that the tests and scans done here are inconclusive, poorly done, and that no diagnostic decisions should ever have been done on the basis of such scanty information…so having all tests repeated at MD Anderson. My advice to all our readers here is to obtain the best medical care if anything serious is suspected…go to a medical center known for expertise. I’m doing ok for now, and once testing is done, we will hopefully have a treatment plan.
      Tiger Mike, we have been having such extreme weather here in the US; I hope that you are not having to fly in any of it! Be super careful! Keep us posted on your new training and tell us how well you are liking it 🙂

      • Tiger Mike says :

        Lynne,
        My prayers will be that the medical mystery will end up being “Theres nothing wrong” And I pray that you live to 120! May Hashem give you health, long life and peace in your heart.

        I don’t begin my training until July 22nd. But I have already flown my last international trip. If I never see china again it will be too soon!

        I have flown 6 diffrent types of aircraft in my airline job. And every time I have trained in a new plane I think to myself “I’ve made a huge mistake.” But I get over it eventually.

    Yael, I just sent you an e-mail. I need a favor:-o

    IRS’s behavior on this matter of the pro-Israel groups is consistent with past behaviors! Why? Those who act like that at the IRS are Democrats I believe and, as hard it is to believe, the anti-Israel people are in majority among the Democrats. Therefore, the targeting of Tea party members and now of the pro-Israel groups comes from the the same people, the hard-core Democrats among the IRS!!

    It is hard to believe that the IRS could act in such a way!! No one has been really penalized concerning the targeting of the Tea party groups and it is likely to be the same for any other groups targeted!

    Well, the Obama administration sails through several scandals completely unaffected by the crazy actions that this administration is responsible of. And now the big brother scandal is in full swing with the NSA!!

    Oh, Obama, you are another dictator clothed as a Democrat (well, a bias for a Communist heritage does not hurt!) and the first step toward a Communist era in the USA.

    Obama, when the hell are you going back to bankrupt Kenya, as you already bankrupted the US with a US deficit that will reach, at the end of Obama’s last four years, the ASTRONOMICAL NUMBER OF MORE THAN $20 TRILLION?!!! It will take the USA MANY generations to reduce this crazy number to less than say $5 trillion, as the huge interest bill regularly bogged down any attempt to reduce this crazy debt.

  10. WipeOutHamasOnceAndForAll says :

    Israeli politicians are illogical to say the least!! Here Netanyahu says that he knows that the Arabs want all of the State of Israel, yet he still keeps telling that he wants to create a Palestinian state inside Israel.
    “Netanyahu: The Arabs Want All of ‘Palestine'” at http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/169148

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, YAELI! Wishing you happiness today and always! 🙂
