US Embassy in Tripoli Taken Over By Islamist Militia

  One of President Barack Hussein Obama’s ‘accomplishments’ in the Middle East was his illegal intervention in Libya to save jihadis and al-Qaeda affiliated fighters in Benghazi when Khaddaffi and his forces were ready to wipe them out. That …

Will Eric Holder Extradite A Hamas Terrorist Involved In Murdering A US Citizen?

 

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder had received a formal request to extradite a Hamas official involved in the kidnapping and murder of an American citizen.

Israeli civil rights attorney, Nitsana Darshan-Leitner sent a letter to Attorney General Holder and  Assistant AG Leslie Caldwell, requesting the Department of Justice extradite Hamas West Bank commander, Saleh al-Arouri, for his role in the kidnapping and murder of Naftali Fraenkel, one of the three teens abducted and slain in the ‘operation’ in Israel that Hamas has claimed credit for.

 http://www.imemc.org/attachments/jun2014/arouri.jpg

Al-Arouri, who runs Hamas in the West Bank from his country of residence, Turkey, was seen on a video last week, making a speech at the fourth conference of the World Union of Islamic Sages in the Islamic Republic, and saying openly  that Hamas’ Qassam Brigades had carried out the June kidnapping and killing of Fraenkel and the two other  Israeli teenagers, Eyal Yifrach and Gil-ad Shaar.

Al-Arouri claimed that he was “speaking on behalf of Hamas leader Khaled Masha’al.”

The Israelis have also captured one member of the three man cell, Hussam al-Qawasmi, who confessed and gave evidence on Al-Arouri’s involvement.

Darshan-Leitner, Founder and Director of the Shurat HaDin–Israel Law Center, a non-governmental organization (NGO), mentioned the video in her letter to the Attorney General and asked the Department of Justice to “take all necessary steps to compel the government of Turkey to extradite” as well expresses confidence “that an investigation into the evidence of the kidnapping and murder of Fraenkel will result in the indictment and extradition of senior Hamas leader al-Arouri from Turkey.”

According to existing treaties between the U.S. and Turkey,  the Islamic Republic is legally obligated  to extradite al-Arouri if he “committed a criminal act that would be punishable by Turkey, had the offense been perpetrated within its territorial jurisdiction,” wrote Darshan-Leitner. “The US is the only country that can bring Arouri to justice.”

Israel and Turkey likewise have a similar extradition treaty, but the Islamist  Erdoğan government has repeatedly refused to honor it, something understandable if you look at  President Tayyip Erdoğan’s support of Hamas, history of anti-semitic outbursts and anti-Israel statements.

Once al-Arouri has been extradited and tried in America, Israel could then request that the US extradite him to Israel to face charges in the kidnap and murder of the other two Israeli teens.

Well, the Obama Administration came out with a number of sympathetic statements and pro-forma condemnations when the three boys were first kidnapped and then murdered by Hamas. Now they have a chance to do something concrete to bring the murderer of an American citizen  to justice. Will they?

Before you answer, here’s a factoid to chew on. According to U.S. law, the FBI is required to investigate the death of an American citizen overseas. That policy has never been implemented when either Fatah or Hamas have been the perpetrators.

The Self-Loathing of the British (and American) Left

You know, this is pretty interesting, and in truth, more and more it applies to the US as well. It’s not a pretty picture, and it’s not new either. Everytime I read this type of thing I’m reminded of senior British Labor politicians, as well as American ones like Teddy Kennedy visiting Moscow and advising […]

Laughing about Corporate Inversions

There’s lot of criticism of the IRS and the tax code on the Internet. Indeed, I like to think I contribute my fair share. But I’m surprised at (what I consider to be be) the limited amount of humor on those topics. As I look through my archives, I can find only a few cartoons […]

Better Lathe Than Never …

This is the story of my lathe acquisition a few years ago. Other options for the title of this post were: “I’ll Learn to Turn”, “Lathes and Gentleman, I Have a New Toy”, “Yearnings and Turnings”, and “Burning to Get Turning”. I was tempted (and succumbed) once again by that evil temptress, the tool section on Craig’s List. I bought a Jet 1236 lathe.

Behind the 2014 Summer Movie Flops: It’s the Narrative, Stupid

With box-office revenue in the U.S. and Canada expected to come in at only $3.9 billion for the summer of 2014, or 15% lower than the year before, and no film hitting $300 million domestically,[1]the question is whether the dip could be explained by a cycle or some larger, irreversible trend. I contend that two factors push the answer past the typical response that most of the movie franchises would be out in force in the summer of 2015.

A Lower Corporate Rate Is a Practical And Good Response to Inversions

But it’s even more amazing that America arguably has the most punitive corporate tax rate in the entire world. Here’s some of what I wrote on the topic for today’s U.K.-based Telegraph. …the United […]
