HT: Elder of Ziyon.The United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan and Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero here Thursday stressed Iran's right to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.
Addressing a joint press conference, Annan and Zapatero said negotiation is the best solution to Iran's nuclear case.
It is quite right that Iran reminds the world of its right to access to peaceful nuclear energy, said Annan adding Tehran should fulfill its commitments within the regulations of the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
He praised efforts made by Iran and the European states to resume talks and settle Tehran's nuclear case, encouraging the sides to boost the move.
The substitution of the 9 nuclear reactors for renewable energies (7.900 W) that are functioning just now would cost between € 15.000 and 20.000 millions, depending on the chosen alternative. To this quantity, we should add the consequences in jobs, because the definitive shut will forze the sacking of 20.000 wordkers; the economic impact in zones where the nuclear plants are sited; and the lose of fiscal benefits for the municipalities. And lastly, the high cost of the dimantlement of the nuclear plants that would be shut.
If they have a better and cheaper energy, don't they believe the greedy businessmen that are only searching for increasing their benefits would have begun to use it, without any need to force them?
A gag order was lifted on Thursday on the arrests of five brothers from Lod who are suspected of murdering their 19-year-old sister in the name of family honor.
The young girl, Rim Abu Ganem, was killed after her brother Suliman, a 33-year-old pediatrician at Assaf Harofeh Hospital, allegedly gave his brothers an anesthetic with which to drug her. According to the suspicions against them, her brothers, whose ages range from 20 to 33, choked her to death after she fell asleep.
Rim's body was found two weeks ago in a well near Rehovot.
Rim had fallen in love a few months earlier with a Palestinian man, despite attempts by her family to betroth her to a resident of Lod. She insisted on maintaining her relationship with the Palestinian man, and ran away from home for a few days.
Police sources say that after Rim returned to Lod, police officers warned her that her life was in danger, and referred her to a women's shelter. She refused, however, and was killed shortly thereafter.
HT: All Things Beautiful.
A New South Wales Supreme Court judge has rejected a claim by a Sydney gang-rapist that his strict Pakistani upbringing meant he did not know his actions were wrong.
Justice Peter Hidden has today sentenced two Sydney brothers, who can only be known as MSK and MAK, for a range of sexual assaults against two teenage girls at the brothers' home in Ashfield in 2002.
The brothers are already serving lengthy sentences for the gang-rape of two other teenage girls and MSK will now serve up to 28 years in jail, and MAK will serve up to 19 years.
MSK claimed his family's strict moral and cultural upbringing in Pakistan explained his offences, which has angered one of his victims, Tegan Wagner."This wasn't about culture, this is about abuse against women and the fact that they had the nerve to bring in culture to begin with just astounds me," she said.
A violent gang rapist should have been given a lesser sentencepartly because he was a “cultural time bomb” whose attacks were inevitable, as he had emigrated from a country with traditional views of women, his barrister has argued. MSK, who, with his three Pakistani brothers, raped several girls at their Ashfield family home over six months in 2002, was affected by “cultural conditioning … in the context of intoxification”, Stephen Odgers, SC, told the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal yesterday.
when he mouthed "I'm sorry". According to the SMH;
Ms Wagner laughed and gave him the finger. When the court adjourned, she stood up, faced him and said: "F--- you! Go to hell, mate."
"I've been waiting four years to do that," she said. Now 18, Ms Wagner then
took the extraordinary step of allowing her identity to be made public. Outside court, she said: "I'd like to say, have fun in prison, boys. I won."
The terrible reality is that MSK is right (in Spanish, I translate only a part of it):While the use of the "Islamic" defense for gang rape is obviously ludicrous (Islam does not sanction rape), modern Islam, particularly how it is practiced and integrated into tribal societies, is brutal and does not hold women in high esteem (at least from my decadent, morally bankrupt, Western Crusader point-of-view). Women who have sex (as well as men) outside of marriage are to be whipped 100 times (from "The Light" 24.2), while adulteresses get stoned (Sunnah, Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Volume 2, Book 23, Number 413).
In some parts of Pakistan, the sexual assault -rape included- is officially authorised as a legitime way to implement the system of social values.
The Council of a little village ordered reciently that 5 teenagers should be "kidanpped, raped or murdered" because their negative to be treated as material things.
Their ages were between 6 and 13 when they were married against their will to pay a family debt, There is also the case of Mukhtar Mai: when it was presumed that her brother, aged 12, had comitted an offense in a little agricultural village, the council ordered his sister should be group-raped. So, she was carried to a hut where she was raped by four men repeatedly.
According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, there were 804 cases of these type of rapes officially orchestrated in 2000 and 434 of them were group-rapes. But the worst thing is that the victims of these atrocities chould commit suicide, because the victims of rape are an irreparable damage to their families.
So when MSK committed the rapes he was only perpetuating his own cultural inheritance. He is proud of a society in which the sexual violence is officially condoned and used commonly as a tool to subdue the women even more.
"Active Protection" Speeds Up
Armies around the world have been spending a ton of time and money trying to figure out how to keep their fighting vehicles, trucks, and personnel carriers safe. Better armor is one answer. Another is to stop attacks before they ever hit. Several of these so-called "active protection" systems are making progress, both here and in Israel. Generally speaking, they all work in the same way, Defense News' Barbara Opall-Rome notes:
• A radar detects and identifies an approaching threat.
• Target information is transferred to a kill mechanism.
• The kill mechanism destroys the target at a safe distance from the vehicle.
A few weeks back, Trophy, an Israeli active protection set-up, went through its first tests on an American Stryker vehicle. It's already being used to protect Israeli tanks against rocket-propelled grenades.
[In a] Feb. 28 test... two inert RPGs were fired simultaneously; one would hit the Stryker while the other was intentionally aimed for a near miss… Trophy was able to track the trajectory, discriminate among the two parallel targets, and determine which one would actually hit the Stryker before selectively unleashing its lethal countermeasures. The actual method used to destroy the targets is classified.
Trophy Active Defense System (ADS) is marketed by General dynamics, based on a system designed in Israel by an industry consortium headed by RAFAEL, including IMI and IAI/ELTA. After evaluating several systems available in the world market, General Dynamics selected the system for further improvement and is offering a version of the system to the US Army and other customers. The system can simultaneously engage several threats, arriving from different directions, is effective on stationary or moving platforms, and is effective against short and long range threats (such as RPGs and ATGM). Trophy was designed to be effective in open or closed terrain, including urban area and can be operated under all weather conditions.It's a force field? Deployable to a rectangle in space? Between you (the target) and the weapon approaching?
The Senate, I feel, has failed.
The primary issue regarding the border at the present moment is national security.
The secondary issue, but almost as key, is how we deal with the criminals here
The 3rd issue is how we allow those who want to come here to become citizens to do so
The 4th issue is how people who want to come here and earn money then go home, achieve that.
The senate has made a rat's nest of wires out the whole thing.
First we have to have the ability to ensure security at the borders. This is a no brainer, and if someone has another priority with regard to this, I'd like to here why. I have heard NOTHING about this despite the fact it is obviously NOT the priority of the Senate of the USA.
The furious international row over the publication of cartoons satirising the prophet Muhammad intensified today when Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, claimed it was an Israeli conspiracy motivated by anger over Hamas's win in the Palestinian elections.They're also severing financial ties with Denmark:
Iran today also announced it was suspending all trade and economic ties with Denmark in protest of the caricatures. The move came after the EU had warned Iran that boycotting Danish goods would place further strain on already frosty relations.If they want to stop their trade agreements, fine. Butter cookies are too good for bigots to be allowed to taste. And it's a shame that their kids won't be allowed to play with Lego either.

This might be the most fun since Dershowitz vs Chomsky ...
The first Islamic attack on the
Has the 1993 sentencing has worked as planned? The blind-sheik continued to command a following and, with the help of his lawyer, Lynn Stewart, he continued to play a role in the terrorist movement. The organization continued to function and play a role in the 2001 attack. What evidence is there that the death sentence creates an Islamic martyr?
Contrary to common misperceptions, an Islamic martyr doesn’t die in the electric chair or become crucified on the cross. That’s a very different religion. Islam is a warrior religion and Islamic martyrs die in battle. Most Christian martyrs died while trying to peacefully preach the religion in hostile territory.
Moussaoui is a failure. He’s a pathetic loser in the minds of jihadists and would be written out of Islamic history if it weren’t for the susceptibility of Western writers to be manipulated by guilt and fear. Indeed, refusing to sentence him to death will only confirm the weakness and susceptibility of the West in the eyes of Jihadists. Refusing to administer the death sentence will be seen as an admission of moral uncertainty.
Besides, justice requires the ultimate punishment.
"An Iraqi-born U.S. citizen suspected of being a foreign intelligence agent was employed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services to rule on asylum applications, including those from unfriendly Middle Eastern nations, according to documents obtained from Congress by The Washington Times.
"Michael J. Maxwell, the former head of the Office of Security and Investigations at USCIS, is expected to testify about the Iraqi case and other breakdowns at the agency to a House subcommittee today.
" Mr. Maxwell will tell legislators that the immigration system is being used by enemy governments to place agents in the United States.
"The suspected agent, whose name has not been released, judged 180 asylum applications while at USCIS, the agency that also rules on green cards, citizenship and employment authorization. ...
"'The immigration system as a whole is so broken that our adversaries can game it,' Mr. Maxwell told The Times when asked about the documents this week. 'I can assure you they're using it against us; they can with impunity.'
"His testimony comes as the Senate debates whether to enact a guest-worker program that would allow current illegal aliens and future foreign workers a new path to citizenship....
"The man has since left USCIS and the United States so Mr. Maxwell closed his investigation. But Mr. Maxwell said that despite his findings, USCIS doesn't even have the ability to go back and see whether any of the 180 cases the former employee approved should be revoked.
"'With no internal audit function at CIS, we don't know who he let into this country,' Mr. Maxwell said.
...I met many dignitaries from the pakistani military and ISI..., we did various religious studies, from Quran memorization to islamic law to mystic sufi studies as well. We visited the schools that the Sheikh had.
We then went into the mountains for extensive studies in the sufi way, We met one white man named Javed, formerly named Atif, formerly named STEPHEN PASTER. The missing fingers the keen look in his eyes , I knew right away who it was when some of the elders greeted him by saying hey nubbs, I guess that comes from the missing fingers from the bomb that went off too early(doesnt sound like an expert bomb maker to me). He stayed around for about 30 min then went off to somewhere unknown. Have not seen him since. All the while we were escorted by armed men with klashnikovs and automatic pistols from russia. A town we went to called Peshawar was like gun city, any kind u wanted u could have, even the banned jewish founded uzi was available.
This is the begining of the end for me within the realm of Gilanism. I am being general but if need be I can name times, places, names and description of my life within this group. I challenge any member of this group to call me on anything I am saying.
Which should actually read the other way around.
We have been very pre-occupied with pre-empting the Iranians developing either a nuclear weapon or the tools to do so, and the Iranian response to this.

longtime mujahid, american ally and head of the Northern Alliance which stills resists the Taliban though dramatically outnumbered.. They blow themselves up along with him, in what appears to be an isolated act to end Northen Alliance resistance. Two days later the world finds out differently.
Two can play the pre-emption game
You didn't see this in television
(lately Farshad Kholghi has been in a bigger Danish singing contest television show where people are singing some well-known songs)
"Two minutes to your song, Farshad. Good luck." the producer said and did a hard knock at my back. There was two minutes till I was going to entertain Denmark on live television.
The nervousness erased my memory. I couldn't remember the melody nor the lyric. I tried for the last time to practice the song; but the only thing that came out of my terror-stricken mouth was a medley over a Richard Ragnvalds (old Danish musician) greatest hits. The situation of my stomach was worse than the Paris riots, and the sweat squirted from my forehead as lies out of the mouth of a mullah.
I love to sing and I do it constantly at home. This has caused the person living in the flat below to hate me whole-hearted and got him into both Johnny Hansens (leader of the Danish nazi party/club) little naziclub and Hizb-ut-Tahrirs big naziclub.
Now I waited in the lonely wings. Suddenly I heard an annoying falsetto saying: "You can't do it". I looked down at the floor and saw a creature being the size of a rotten banana jumping around my left foot with a little camel doll in the hand. He crawled up on my shoe with difficulties and looked up at me. "My name is Balls-In-Curry. If you are singing good, don't you think that someone will come and blow you up?" he said and came to look like a goat. (The danish word for Balls-In-Curry is Boller-i-Karry [last part pronounced something like karri] sound suspiciously like some Islamic Danish cleric, and the figures are pretty obvious too)
"Do you threaten me?" I yelled and went on to stage to entertain the nation.
It was a great show with dancers and fireworks. I was so on, that I accidently vomit fire. After the number I was happy. I ran to the judges - but got the shock of my life. In the panel of judges there was Marianne Jelved ((R), opposition, is middle-left), Anders Fogh ((V), PM of Denmark), and Helle Thorning-Schmidt ((S), opposition, middle, second largest Danish party).
Anders Fogh sent me a thumbs-up. "Now we can separate the sheep from the goats" he said (he has said this in the mohammed intifada) - but was interrupted by Marianne Jelved. "No, how can you say that? As a judge you shouldn't judge anyone. You shall go into dialog." (the danish sentence here was like "You shall build bridge over" but not sure is there is any english proverb like this)
Helle Thorning-Schmidt was politely holding back. While Marianne Jelved was telling Anders Fogh off and lecture whole Denmark about moral, the little Balls-In-Curry came and fall on me and began to beat me with his camel doll. "I said that you shouldn't do it good!" the little man said.
Desperately I looked at the self-righteous Jelved and asked for help. Balls-In-Curry was obviously out of control. Marrianne Jelved looked first at the attacker, and then she looked at Anders Fogh. "This is a very dangerous man. We must stop this madness," (she actually has stated this directly) Marianne Jelved said and pointed at Anders Fogh. Immediately she slammed her handbag into the head of him. (Jelved is very famous for always walking around with a handbag) It was chaos. I kept yelling for help. Jelved still hit Fogh with the handbag, and Helle Thorning-Schmidt still was quite. "Can't you see he's hitting me? Help me," I yelled. Balls-In-Curry instantly stated that he dissociate himself from his ongoing actions and his own tongue. Just to keep on hitting and threatening me.
The judges accepted his statements and kept on with their mutual fighting.
Finally Helle Thorning-Schmidt got into action. Everything was in slow motion. I was waiting the speech of the century. "No, really, Marianne. You are filling way too much. I also want to be into this. It's totally unfair. Because it's me who are going to be supreme judge someday. No, really, please ... May I borrow your handbag?" she said and stamped in the floor. (Helle Thorning-Schmidt has stated she is going to beat Anders Fogh and be the next PM, but she has acted really girly lately and fail in controlling her own party so that probably not going to happen, ever)
All this you couldn't watch in the television. But it happened. For real. The only thing I was happy about, was the three minutes I got to entertain Denmark with "Let me entertain you".
I apologize for some repetition here, but this older (18 January 2006) article by Debbie Schlussel is the one I had wanted to publish first, but had a little trouble finding.
It provides some details about Jill Carroll's attitudes and views in addition to the ones in the more recent one below, and I thought them interesting enough to bring up here, even though the MSM no longer appears interested in her for the time being.
If you are anything like me, you wanted to hear, at the very least, that Jill had learned something about Islam from her experience, but it would appear that it only strengthened her pre-existing views favoring Islam.
Debbie gets the meat of this article from the Jordanian press.
"Check out this outrage from our 'ally in the War on Terror,'Jordan," she says:
"The state-run, state-sanctioned Jordan Times spews the official position of the country's Hashemite King Abdullah. And apparently, the official position of the Kingdom is that if you are an American citizen who supports American policy in the Middle East, and you are kidnapped by insurgents, you are the 'right target.' You deserved it and should be beheaded.
"But if you oppose U.S. policy in the Mid-East, LIKE JILL CARROLL DOES, then you are the 'wrong target.' Check out The Jordan Times Sunday 'editorial' on the Christian Science Monitor free-lancer:
"The kidnappers who abducted her could not have chosen a more wrong target. True, Jill is a US citizen. But she is also more critical of US policies towards the Middle East than many Arabs. . . . Jill has been from day one opposed to the war, to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.
"More than just being sympathetic with average Iraqis under war and occupation, Jill is a true believer in Arab causes.
"From Arabic food to the Arabic language, Jill has always wanted to know and experience as much as possible about Arab identity, and she is keen on absorbing it, learning, understanding and respecting it.
"She doesn't just "like" Arab culture, she loves it. . . . It is simply unconscionable for any Arab to want to harm a person like her.
"Jordan Times' Beheading Candidates: Nick Berg (Okay), Keith 'Matt' Maupin (Okay), Jill Carroll (not Okay).
"Predictably, the Terrorist News Network (a/k/a Al-Jazeera) is eating this up.
"Oops, we almost forgot. Jill was good friends with Treasonatrix Barbie.
"So, there you have it--the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan's sickening, official view: If you are a pan-Islamist American, you deserve to live and be released by your captors. But if you are a patriotic American and not a far-lefty wacko, it's the Nick Berg treatment for you . . . and deservedly so.
"Shukran (Thank you), King Abdullah. Moumtez (Excellent)."
One of the great benefits of living in rural Norman Rockwell america is that when someone notable shows up at a local U, the gathering is only slightly larger than that you would find at a large cocktail party.
So there were maybe 45-50 people AT MOST.
This is a slightly blue but balanced state. More independent than red or blue I'd say, populated (more recently) by many who seek a way of life rather than fame, riches or notariety. This shared outlook (discovered by accident when we moved back here full time after many years in/near the BIG city) yields a very nice comity when the poltical wrangles come along, as opposed to NH where it's Hammer and Tongs (which I'll miss in 2008, I'm sure).
Enough of that.
Mr. Kristol (who looks exactly as he does on TV) was pretty funny. He spoke about the differences in foreign affairs pre and post break point of the modern era, 9/11 for about 40 minutes and then took questions there, and at the small reception after.
So I asked him about the OTHER OTHER bad guy our bud, Hassan Abbasi of the risk-averse western man.
This morning, there were some horrific reports and pictures of an upsurge in violence on the streets of Paris - the usual "youths" and "students."
I know that many of us think France is circling the drain pretty darned fast, and that it's entirely possible that much of the rest of "Old Europe" isn't far behind.
There is one Eastern European author, though, who "gets it" and is very, very knowledgeable about Islam. The problem is so worrisome to her that, in view of the ever increasing frequency and intensity of the violence in France, she has written a very compelling novel called "Hatred of the Angels."
Because of the level of PC in Europe, she has been unable to find a publisher. We thought her vision of the future was so important, so educational, that we offered to publish it chapter at a time, about once a month, over at 6thCAJ. So far,three chapters have been published, with about nine to go. The titles of all of them are listed.
If there are any French viewers here, please read this. Chapter One is called "Faith Square," in a place known a long time ago as "Paris," and populated by people who have forgotten their history.
Americans, please note that Chapter Two is called "Ground Zero Mosque." Many of us in the States have been angered by the proposal of George Soros and company to put an anti-West, anti-American "Museum" at Ground Zero. It might as well be the "Ground Zero Mosque."
An al-Qaeda leader as important as overall terror chief Osama bin Laden and the group's Iraq leader Abu Musab Zarqawi will soon reveal himself in the Palestinian territories and orchestrate local and global jihad from the area, according to a pamphlet distributed in the Gaza Strip.
The pamphlet, signed by a group calling itself the Jaish al Jihad, or Army of Jihad, claimed to speak for al-Qaeda. It warned all non-Muslims and foreign embassies to vacate the Palestinian areas within one month.
"Is there now among us a person like Saladin, like Sheik Osama bin Laden, like Abu Musab Zarqawi? The answer is yes. We have this man and he will appear with the help of Allah very soon on the land of Palestine," said the pamphlet, which was intercepted this week by the Palestinian General Intelligence after being circulated in southern Gaza.
The message continued: "We ask all foreigners who are not Muslims to leave our holy Islamic land. We will fight all those who do not believe that Allah is the one and only God. (We will fight) every government that will not apply the rules of Allah and Islam and that chooses to follow the rules of the West and the infidels that bring corruption to our lives and religion like prostitution, alcohol … and drugs."
The group threatened the Palestinian police and security services not to interrupt its planned activities, adding, "we will fight all the corrupted and unbelieving politicians. It will be a great war for the purity of the land of Islam and Palestine."
Well, here is the real deal on this system. If there is any doubt we are talking about the Russian Shkval in the hands of the Iranians, it will be goen afteer you read the details and then compare them to what the Iranians are claiming.
It's time to call the Russians bluff, and call them to task.
Not only is it hard for me to believe that this was stolen from the Russians, but it's presence means that the Russians have been working with the Iranians to kill thousands of americans in the event the american govt find it compulsory to attack Iranian nuclear weapons sites in order to safeguard the american people.
Last Thursday the first jihadist government since the Taliban ascended to power. The induction of the Hamas government in the Palestinian Authority has created a new dynamic in the Middle East.More on the current situation in Gaza now that the Israelis have pulled out-- ThreatsWatch reports:
Today a force openly supportive of global jihadist organizations like al-Qaida and Hizbullah, allied with Iran, dedicated to the complete Islamization of Palestinian society and committed to the eradication of Israel now reigns in the Palestinian Authority.
In an address last Wednesday, Bush said, "I weep about the suffering of the Palestinians," while maintaining that the "US government has got aid that goes directly to people. And I know that we'll continue to call upon governments in the region to support the Palestinian people."
Since its electoral victory, Hamas has targeted nightclubs, bars, Westernized women and homosexuals in Gaza.
Red on Red in Gaza Bombing & Aftermath: Popular Resistance Committees commander killed in car bomb, PRC blames FatahArticles as well as links to some excellent background information are here.

If movie trailers are supposed to cause a reaction, the preview for "United 93" more than succeeds. Featuring no voice-over and no famous actors, it begins with images of a beautiful morning and passengers boarding an airplane. It takes you a minute to realize what the movie's even about. That's when a plane hits the World Trade Center. The effect is visceral. When the trailer played before "Inside Man" last week at the famed Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, audience members began calling out, "Too soon!" In New York City, where 9/11 remains an open wound, the response was even more dramatic. The AMC Loews theater on Manhattan's Upper West Side took the rare step of pulling the trailer from its screens after several complaints. "One lady was crying," says one of the theater's managers, Kevin Adjodha. "She was saying we shouldn't have [played the trailer]. That this was wrong ... I don't think people are ready for this."
This makes me a bit sick.
Tired of male domination, 5 Saudi women change sexWHat did the Prophet say about sex change operations?
RIYADH (Reuters) - Tired of playing second fiddle to men in conservative Saudi Arabia, five women decided if you can't beat them, join them.
Al Watan newspaper said the five women underwent sex change surgery abroad over the past 12 months after they developed a "psychological complex" due to male domination.
Women in Saudi Arabia, which adopts an austere interpretation of Islam, are not allowed to drive or even go to public places unaccompanied by a male relative.
The newspaper quoted a senior cleric as saying the authorities have to fill what he described as a legal vacuum by issuing laws against sex change operations.
An interior ministry official told al Watan such cases are examined by religious authorities, and sometimes by psychologists, but those who undergo sex change are never arrested.
Wanta kick your week off right? Read this. It showed up on Pedestrian Infidel, and we tracked a source back to Ali Sina's FaithFreedom.org.

After stumbling upon a website operated by a group called Islamic Thinkers Society, I could not get over the notion that, with their name, they have coined the Mother of All Oxymorons. How could anyone that has signed on to kill himself and others to please the imaginary friend of a seventh century psychopath have the audacity to call himself a “thinker”? On the contrary, he has demonstrated a willingness to be a mindless robot that spreads destruction in order to promote the cause of not thinking. To wit, Allah despises free thinking so much that extermination is promised to the conscience that dares to entertain a unique thought. How else could a “religion” keep so many brainwashed zombies in line if not for the ever-present death threat that is the beautiful Quran? Not only do the words “Islamic” and “Thinker” not belong together, they are even mutually exclusive – for the rare Muslim that is brazen enough to think for himself has arrived at a fork in the road whose two possible outcomes, death and apostasy, both involve leaving Islam.
Judging by the photos on the Islamic Thinkers website, these intellectual powerhouses appear to enjoy burning American and Danish flags after a long day of pondering the good deeds of the Prophet. After all, if the object of your worship was a pedophile and master liar, as a true “thinker” I suppose that your first instinct should be to denigrate any symbol of freedom - even if that symbol represented the tolerance that allowed you to spew the most distilled brand of hatred the world has ever known.
For us infidels that are still allowed to think and speak freely, Muslim activities over the past few years have given us plenty to think about. I truly wish there were some actual Islamic thinkers out there to engage in rational debate, but we have all seen it 100 times before – the minute the going gets tough, the arrogant Muslim puppet resorts to branding you an infidel and/or threatening violence. The most enlightening example of this phenomenon that I have ever seen was the recent al-Jazeera broadcast of Dr. Wafa Sultan verbally lacerating two pathetic mega-mullahs. As she was relentlessly pummeling these hapless clowns into oblivion, all these great thinkers could do is throw up their arms, nervously scribble notes, and dismiss her as a heretic. The lesson here is obvious – when you strip away Islam’s mask of intimidation and deception, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING THERE. This lesson was on display for the whole world to see, but will anything be learned from it? Hope springs eternal.
A secondary lesson is that it is impossible to bring shame upon a rabid animal that has been programmed to have no soul. Your words, no matter how powerful and seething to a normal human, do not penetrate the blank stare of the lunatic Muslim. It would be easier for you to make your dog to feel guilty about eating the piece of steak you dropped at his feet.
The good news is that, despite the sickening propaganda and psychological programming of their youths, some Muslims are strong enough to think for themselves. The pages of Faith Freedom International are overflowing with the personal horror stories of these apostates. But as for having dialogue with a “thinker” whose feeble mind is still frozen in the death-grip of the Quran, I’m afraid it’s just not going to happen. Thus, in lieu of engaging an actual believer, allow this kaffir to share a few random musings:
o Is the phrase “The Religion of Peace” the most blatant form of al-Taqiyya ever conceived, or could it be that a spelling error is responsible for a misunderstanding of colossal proportions? In order to remedy this situation, we shall heretofore refer to Islam as “The Religion of Pieces” to represent the physical remains of the people, churches, synagogues, religious statues, cars, trucks, etc. that have stood in the path of Hurricane Allah.
o What is the waiting period between conversion to Islam and entitlement to full benefits at the afterlife shindig? I suspect that the inventory of virgins is getting a bit thin as a result of the recent spate of martyrdom operations, but if I’m sitting on a airplane and hear an outbreak of “allahu akbar”, I’m gonna want to get my fair share of the action once we arrive in paradise! (it’s 72 right?)
o How much overwhelming evidence will it take before the pathetic, sorry-ass western liberals finally admit that Islam equals evil? I don’t know about you, but I’m not betting this will happen anytime soon because the depth of naivete on the left is apparently unfathomable. This other group of great thinkers would commit assisted suicide on a global scale rather than admit they were wrong on their assessment of the poor, disadvantaged, misunderstood “freedom fighters” of Islam. In this regard, they are arguably a bigger immediate threat than Islam itself, and they absolutely cannot be trusted to make leadership decisions in this era. Think about it – Project Eurabia is nearly complete and the European liberals are just barely showing signs of waking up (I repeat BARELY).
Yes indeed, the Religion of Pieces gives one much to think about. There is enough gore, blood, destruction, and nightmares to last everyone in this world a lifetime. If you need more evidence of what we’re in for, log on to Islamicthinkers.com and watch the video of their street “protest”. But don’t blame me if you end up putting your fist through the monitor screen.
