Thursday links. Come and get 'em!

From Ian:

Ignoring the real bloodshed in Syria by focusing on Israel by Alex Ryvchin - NGO Monitor
"This week, Oxfam, Crisis Action and other NGOs will send delegations to Brussels to lobby the European Parliament in the political campaign to single out Israel by labelling goods that originate from Israeli settlements on the eastern side of the “Green Line.” This is the 1949 armistice line that arbitrarily marked where Jordanian and Israeli forces were located at the end of the 1948 war, and has no legal significance. This political event is funded by the government of Denmark, whose support for boycotting Israel and failure to implement similar measures against Syrian products reveals the same hypocrisy and poor judgment as the NGOs it’s hosting in Brussels this week."

U.S. State Department Strengthening Hamas by Khaled Abu Toameh
"The Emir of Qatar's visit to the Gaza Strip is a huge diplomatic victory for Hamas and a severe blow to the moderate Palestinians and the Palestinian Authority. The emir did not come to the Gaza Strip to try to persuade Hamas to abandon terror and recognize Israel's right to exist. Nor did he come to the Gaza Strip to tell Hamas to endorse democracy and stop its oppressive measures against Palestinians, especially women."

America’s foes get away with murder
“So here are a few conclusions that should, by now, be apparent: 1) Iran’s rulers collaborate with al-Qaida, a terrorist organization with which the Obama administration says we are at war; 2) Iran’s rulers, the world’s leading sponsors of terrorism, do not hesitate to plot terrorism on American soil, confident they will pay no price; 3) Iran’s rulers are pursuing a nuclear weapons capability and, if they achieve that goal, will become much bolder and more dangerous.
It’s time we grasped this, too: Swatting mosquitoes and shooting the occasional crocodile takes you only so far. At some point it becomes necessary to devise a strategy to drain the swamp.”

Falk was just condemned by the British government for his “anti-Semitic” remarks, with the Foreign Office delivering a protest to the U.N. that expressed London’s “serious concerns” over his “unacceptable” comments. UN Watch urged the U.S., France, Germany and other democracies to follow suit by taking the floor today to condemn Falk’s anti-Jewish remarks.

Silence on Gaza rockets gives terror a green light, Israeli envoy warns UN
"Ron Prosor warned Security Council members that if they don’t condemn the rocket attacks, “there could be tragic consequences” because Hamas and other terrorists will interpret the silence “as a green light for terror and provocation.”

Daphne Anson Angling For An Apology: Britons Battling The Balfour Declaration
"So runs a silly doomed-for-the-dustbin e-petition to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office concocted last year by an anti-Israel activist. Tweeted at intervals by its framer, who also happens to head a small Palestine Solidarity Campaign branch somewhere in the British boondocks, the e-petition closed in August this year, having attracted just 155 signatures."

Obama’s Benghazi Investigator: An Iran Sympathizer
"The problem is that Pickering has ties to the pro-Iran Islamist front group known as the National Iranian American Council (NIAC). NIAC lost an important defamation case in federal court last month in which it unsuccessfully argued the group was not a tool of the Islamic Republic of Iran."
