Interpreting the Islamic Bombings

In Australia there has so far been very little attempt to interpret the wider significance of the BBs and the issue seems to be dying here. In the US , however, ongoing interpretations have been occurring through various media outlets and, as it happens, they are coinciding with the upcoming Congressional inquiry on another BB type episode viz, the Administration’s handling of the attack on the US Benghazi consulate. This is now acknowledged even by the Administration to have had an al Qaeda involvement which was initially covered up. But despite the “clearing of fault” report by the Administration, there are indications that much more could now be revealed about the handling of the situation.

It is encouraging that there is an on-going media/think-tank exposure in America of what now appears to be a deliberate and worrying cover up by the US Administration of the Islamic influence. It would also be helpful if Obama is forced to reveal more of his own position. It is now possible that details of the cover-up will develop into an active involvement in Congress.

Durie Interview

From the Australian end the most important development is an interview  on Christian Worldview Radio conducted with Dr Mark Durie, an Anglican preacher in Caulfield, Victoria. This interview was published in America on 27 April by the Middle East Forum, a think-tank established in Philadelphia by Daniel Pipes, an American with Jewish origins and well known and respected in Australian circles. Durie’s interview is likely to get some attention within the US – but presumably not here!

Following are important points made by Durie (the full interview is available here):

Ex Judge Pirro

Another promising development is the active involvement in the issue of a former Judge, Jeanine Ferris Pirro (born 1951). She is the daughter of Lebanese immigrants to the U.S. and a former prosecutor, judge, and elected official from the state of New York, who is currently a legal analyst and television personality. She is currently contributing to Today, Fox NY Good Day New York, and is a Fox News legal 'analyst' appearing on various shows.  I am trying to obtain the transcript of her devastating TV attack on (in particular) the mother of the two bombers.

Benghazi Inquiry

Available here for download is an article suggesting that this congressional committee inquiry will be “the beginning of the end” of the Obama administration. Whether that turns out to be the case remains to be seen. But there seems little doubt that the inquiry will reveal more cover ups on the Islamic influence.

My 2GB Interview

Also available here is the transcript of the interview I had last week on 2GB Sydney.
