Interpol and when terrorists become the police

Can you imagine Palestinian Arabs investigating the Las Vegas shooting to see if there are any connections to ISIS?

The Palestinian Arabs are the new sheriffs in town. While you were praying for a safer world, Interpol, the international police network, voted them in as full members. Which means that the world’s Most Wanted terrorists, like Fatah, Hamas, Hezbollah, now get to wear a badge. 

The PA (Palestinian Authority) now gets to carry a big stick at the same time that it calls for the murder of Jews…and PAYS its terrorists to get the job done.

That’s who’s taking charge of the world…one step at a time. Earlier we wrote about the world’s suicidal inclination to submit to Radical Islam. We mentioned two books…Submission…The Bathsheba Deadline…that through fact and fiction and a touch of clairvoyance sound the alarm. We saw it coming.

So here it is, and through malaise, political correctness and tolerance taken to extremes, we have no one to blame but ourselves for our decline and decay.

The pieties of Liberalism have brought upon our heads this absurdity whereby 75 countries voted yes to have Palestinian Arab Islamists serve the world as Interpol police. Twenty four opposed and 34 abstained, but the fact remains, 75 of them gave their nod to anti-Semitism under cover of a secret ballot.

Yes, much of it is about Israel.

Sensitive Interpol intel may fall into the hands of Palestinian terror groups.
As the NY Post has it: “Make no mistake: Israel has much to lose here. It’s not just that yet another international body has recognized “Palestine” (the UN, UNESCO and other groups have all offered it some form of membership), thereby boosting its standing.

“Worse: Palestinians can now try to use Interpol to push bogus “law-enforcement” efforts (travel bans, extraditions, etc.) aimed at Israelis. 

“Worse yet: Sensitive Interpol intel may fall into the hands of Palestinian terror groups.”

All that, and as of this moment on, will we ever be able to trust Interpol about anything, anywhere – say the Las Vegas massacre of Sunday night?

Local and federal authorities (as of this writing) deny or cannot find any international (generally meaning ISIS/Islamic) connections to the shooter who killed more than 50 and wounded more than 500 at a country music festival on the Vegas Strip. 

But if Interpol were brought in to such a case, here or anywhere else, could we be sure that we’re being given the truth?

With “Palestinian” fingers in the mix, chances are that any Islamic ties would be hushed and nixed…worse, they’d find some way to blame the Jews.

And they’d have the Law on their side.

My sister recently completed her Holocaust memoir, “Sarah and Abraham” and I asked her when she knew the Nazis had arrived in France.

“That was easy. I woke up one morning and different men were directing traffic near our home. They didn’t speak French. They gave orders in German.”

Now near our homes they’re coming to give orders in Arabic.
