Guest: David Rubin

Vic began by describing a recent meat-cleaver attack on worshippers in a synagogue by Palestinian terrorists. Why did CNN call it a deadly attack on a Jerusalem mosque? Why did another source allege that 4 Israeli's and 2 Palestinians were dead in Jerusalem without saying who the Palestinians were when in fact, they were the attackers?

Joining Vic to discuss this was David Rubin. David is a former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria, known to most as the West Bank. He is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund dedicated to healing the trauma of children who have been victims of terrorists attacks as well as rebuilding the biblical heartland of Israel. He is author of Peace for Peace: Israel in the New Middle East and The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama.

According to David, during a recent morning prayer service at a synagogue in a quiet, residential neighborhood on the northwestern side of Jerusalem, 2 terrorists, one who worked at a neighborhood grocery store, went into the synagogue with a gun, meat cleavers and axes. They began randomly flailing away at the worshippers leaving them in pools of blood. In the end, 4 worshippers died. 3 out of the 4 were ordained rabbis. A police officer was also killed and about 13 people were wounded.

David noted that this was not one isolated incident carried out by two spontaneous individuals. This is part of a pattern. There has been a series of terrorist attacks in the past month in Jerusalem. In each case the victims were Jewish, Israeli and there were no cases of Arabs being attacked and/or killed.

This incident points to what David believes is the incitement of terrorism by Mahmoud Abbas, his financing of terrorism and the monthly payment of terrorists by his Palestinain Authority. In fact, David alleged that terrorists are being payed by Abbas and the Palestinian Authority regardless of whether they are from his own terrorist organization called Fatah or whether they're from Hamas, Islamic Jihad and probably ISIS as well.

David would like to see Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, address not only the incitement but also the encouragement and financing of terrorism. This would include sending the Army into Ramallah which is the headquarters for the Palestinian Authority, destroy their headquarters, collect the documents that prove their complicity with terrorism and then start a public relations campaign. The P.R.campaign would involve reporting what they find to the world, explaining that because the Palestinian Authority has been financing terrorism, the Oslo Peace Accords and the Palestinian Authority are both null and void.

The nation is reeling from statements made by Jonathan Gruber, the chief architect of Obamacare, revealing that lies and deception, lack of transparency, and stupidity of the American people were critical to the passage of the health care law. All of this comes forward as enrollment in Obamacare has begun.

Joining Jim to talk about this was Twila Brase, president of the Citizens Council for Health Freedom. Twila is a certified public health nurse. She has provided testimony at the state legislative level and meets with members of Congress as well as speaking around the country. She provides daily commentary on the “Health Freedom Minute”

Jim began by playing an audio cut from Gruber, an MIT economist who since 2000 has received 6 million in state and federal governments for his expertise. Twila noted that Gruber was really saying that the American public is smart so the crafters of Obamacare had to deceive us because if we had really heard what was in it, we're smart enough to know that the bill would have to be killed.

In another cut President Obama was asked how he 'squares' his comment about governments needing to be held accountable and responsive to the people with that of his former advisor, Jonathan Gruber, who claimed that President Obama was not transparent about the health care law because in his words, the American people are stupid. So did he mislead Americans in order to get the bill passed? In response the President referred to Gruber as some advisor who never worked on his staff and expressed an opinion that he disagrees with.

This is interesting when you consider that Gruber is alleged to have had many visits to the White House, even meeting with President Obama to discuss the 'Cadillac Tax, a 40% tax on 'Cadillac' style insurance policies. In fact, Jim noted there's another recent clip that came out where Gruber disclosed that President Obama himself was part of the discussion about the need to deceive the people to pass the Affordable Care Act.

Twila also commented on open enrollment sign-ups, substantial price increases within Obamacare, Todd Park's appearance before a House hearing on the botched Obamacare website launch, the House deciding to keep their exemption concerning their own enrollment in Obamacare, her 7 smart reasons why Americans shouldn't enroll in Obamacare and more.

Dr. Kathy McReynolds is Director of Academic Studies for the Joni & Friends Christian Institute on Disability. Dr. McReynolds develops position papers on the many ethical issues in bioethics for the benefit of the disabled. She also contributes to curriculum development for the variety of courses in disability studies that the Institute is creating for colleges, universities and seminaries around the country. She has spent several years as an active member of the ethics committee a Children's Hospital in Orange County and was a member of the Institutional Review Board Committee at the hospital.

How did we get to where we are today concerning the issue of euthanasia? Dr. McReynolds began by noting the definition of 'dignity' which is the state or quality of being worthy of honor and respect. In light of that definition, how is it possible that we can even link the subjects of death and dignity? She believes there is nothing dignifying at all about death. So the problem actually takes place when we link autonomy and dignity together and determine that if we are able to choose death on our own terms, somehow death now becomes dignified.

Dr. McReynolds credits the 80's and 90's with the language promoting death with dignity. It was primarily a reaction to the rapid medical and technological advances that enable doctors to keep people alive in almost unending fashion. From this came the idea that we're now able to remain alive beyond natural boundaries. This culminated in the 1997 Oregon decision when they became the first state to legalize assisted suicide (death with dignity).

The acceptance of the right to die has progressed faster in Europe than it has here in the U.S. Assisted suicide in which doctors prescribe lethal drugs but do not administer them is legal in Switzerland, Germany and Albania as well as in Colombia, Japan and the Canadian province of Quebec.

Jim and Dr. McReynolds look at a precedent setting euthanasia case involving a child in the U.K., the U.K.'s move toward suicide courts, the Brittany Maynard story, a 'mercy' killing by a California man, what role should the church play in this culture of death, as well as input from Crosstalk listeners.

Erich Pratt is Director of Communications for Gun Owners of America. He is the author of, “Bearing Arms: Our Rights, Our Duties & Our Freedoms”, and of the civil government textbook, “The Constitutional Recipe for Freedom: Twelve Principles of Liberty Today’s Politicians Don’t Want You to Know”.

On November 4, residents of Washington State passed Initiative 594, a measure that requires criminal background checks on all firearms sales and transfers in the state, including at gun shows and on the Internet. In fact, even handing a gun to a hunting partner without first getting a background check could be seen as a violation of this law. It is an example of how those opposing gun rights failed in legislative or legal efforts, so they take it to the people who often do not understand the full implications of the proposals they are voting on.

A lawsuit has been filed in California challenging new regulations that prevent firearms dealers from displaying pictures of handguns, or even mentioning that they sell handguns.

Erich Pratt says that requiring people to get permission before exercising their second amendment right allows government officials to deny permission, even if the person meets all the legal requirements for safe use of a firearm.

But the vast majority of gun incidents involve using the firearm to save lives, not to take lives. Since 1950 all the mass shooting incidents reported, except two, took place in "gun free" zones. This is because those intent on violence usually choose a place where they are least likely to face armed opposition.

In Buffalo, New York, it is now proposed that firearms owned by registered gun owners be confiscated immediately after their death. But they would not confiscate other property of the deceased, because it rightfully passes on to their heirs. So the precedent is being made that firearms are the property of the state, not the person who owns and possesses them.

But the U.S. Supreme Court, ruling in a case begin in Chicago, ruled that the right to bear arms does not only apply in federal areas, but also in state and local jurisdictions. This is already being cited in cases across the nation.

But the new tactics involve using incidents of gun violence as a justification for denying people who are determined to have mental or emotional issues the right to gun ownership. This has resulted in designating returning military veterans as being emotionally unstable because of their combat duty, where they were entrusted with military weapons, but denying them the right to own or use firearms on their return. Recently the Obama administration announced a program to evaluate school children for emotional problems, thus setting them up for future regulations if their names are added to a list of those with problems.

The U.N. Arms Trade Treaty, which would pre-empt the Constitution and create huge restrictions on gun ownership, has not been ratified by the U.S. Senate, which is required. But Mr. Obama's record of using his "phone and his pen" to enact regulations that Congress has not passed, raises concerns that he will now begin to implement the treaty piece by piece on his own initiative.

Mr. Pratt is hopeful that the results of the elections, and the change in the makeup of the Congress in January, may make it less likely that such tactics can succeed in the future.
