Obama to Israel--Release Terrorists as a Goodwill Gesture

According to the Jerusalem Post, the Obama Administration has demanded that Israel release cold blooded Palestinian terrorists as a goodwill gesture.  Israeli Deputy Minister Ofir Akunis promised that there is no government decision to release the terrorists and that the government is against any such release.

President Obama is in no position to demand anyone to release child killing terrorists.  Israel is at the forefront in the war with radical Islam and they are always pressed to show restraint or do things that harm the security of the state of Israel.  Obama is in complete denial about the dangers of radical Islam and this terrorist release demand epitomizes that denial.

Mr. Obama can't even muster the words 'Muslim' and 'terrorism' in the same sentence.  Other prime examples of this denial are the Fort Hood terrorist attack, the Benghazi terrorist attack and more recently the Boston terrorist attack.  This White House even tried to coverup the Muslim Jihadist connection in the Benghazi terrorist attack by blaming a video on Youtube.

The Obama White House even moved quickly this week to down play Secretary of State John Kerry’s contention that Boston Jihadist Tamerlan Tsarnaev had drawn inspiration for the attacks during a trip he took to Chechnya.

Here is a listing of the terrorists President Obama is demanding that Israel release:  Those who burned Amnon Pomerantz alive in his car in 1990, the terrorists who murdered tractor driver Yigal Vahknin in 1993, the terrorist who murdered 39-year-old Gush Katif resident Shaya Deutch in 1993, the terrorists who burned to their deaths Rachel Weiss and her three children; Ephraim, Netanel and Raphael as well as soldier David Delarosa who tried to save them and the terrorist who murdered Professor Menachem Stern in the Valley of the Cross (in Jerusalem) while he was on his way to Hebrew University.

Maybe Israel should demand that Barack Obama release Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as a gesture of goodwill.  Sad thing is, no one would really be surprised if Obama considered such an action.

Alan Dershowitz: Government Will "Regret" Not Reading Boston Bomber Miranda Rights.

Civil Liberties and Criminal Attorney Alan Dershowitz claimed in a MSNBC interview that authorities will "regret" not reading Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights and "may have blown the death penalty." 

MSNBC ANCHOR: Authorities decided to withhold reading Dzhokar his Miranda rights, invoking a public safety exception. As time passes, does the justification for this wear off? And, in your opinion, does the U.S., do investigators stand to regret that?

DERSHOWITZ: They will regret it, I think. A: There was never a basis for the public safety exception. As you know, when they announced it, the police had already announced that the public safety danger was over, they had arrested everybody. They didn’t think there was any further risk to the public. So they were using it as a subterfuge.

Why will they come to regret it? Because they think that this case is going to be made based on videotapes the physical evidence. Bu there are two elements to every crime: The actus reus, that is the crime itself, which they will have no problem proving. And the intention. Now in order to get the death penalty they have to prove a terrorist intention. Now, in order to do that, they may get the information from him without having Mirandized him. And that information may be kept out of a trial. So they may have blown the death penalty, by not giving him his Miranda rights.

DERSHOWITZ: And I do that there will be a price to be paid for it. I know the courts in Boston, I practiced in front of the federal courts in Boston. They're very tough on insisting that the rules be followed. And if they try to circumvent these rules by not giving him his Miranda rights, I can easily see a federal court saying, 'you can't use any of his statements that he gave you in writing in the hospital.' They may not be able to use them anyway because he may be not be competent to provide incriminating statements while he is in and out of sedation. 

I respect Dersowitz as a legal mind, however, I disagree with him in this case.  As he stated in the article, actus rea will be easy enough to prove because of the plethora of evidence, but he goes on to say that "in order to get the death penalty they have to prove a terrorist intention." 

Mens rea (actus non facit reum nisi mens sit rea) can be proven even if the court rules the prosecution cannot use the suspect’s statements.  The carjacking victim has told authorities the suspect claimed they were headed to New York to commit more attacks and also claims he wasn't killed because he wasn't an American.

United States Law Code defines terrorism in part as "the term “terrorism” means premeditated, politically motivated violence perpetrated against noncombatant targets by subnational groups or clandestine agents."

Premeditation will be a slam dunk...the politically motivation part of the definition can be proved by the simple fact they verbalized their intention to kill Americans exclusively to the carjacking victim.  That in and of itself will satisfy the political motivation requirement.

The defense will no doubt try to cast doubt on the credibility of the witness, but I surmise the jury will see through the tactic.  Muslim terrorists often film farewell videos of themselves before they commit their crimes, so if the government finds evidence of such a video, that will help satisfy the political motivation requirement and premeditation as well.

There is so much evidence that will be accumulated before trial and I'm convinced it will be enough to convict and sentence the suspect to death.

Twin Explosions at Boston Marathon, at least 3 dead.

Three dead in Boston Marathon terrorist attack, another 144 injured with 17 critical.

The FBI has taken over the investigation into the Boston Marathon terrorist attack, which has resulted in 144 people injured.  The FBI announced that they were searching for a man they described as having dark skin, wearing black clothes and a black back-pack who tried to gain entry into a restricted area during the marathon.
It was also reported that he may have had a foreign accent.  We must be careful with early reports of suspects and facts on the ground because they are subject to change radically in short order.  I will have more tomorrow when the facts become clear.  Until then, say a prayer for all of those innocent people affected by this cowardly act of evil.
