Internet Tracking Helped Snare Toronto Terror Suspects - 3 Tons Of Ammonium Nitrate Found

Yes, internet tracking, like the tracking that many of the Democratic Lefties in our Congress want to stop, led to the terror arrests in Toronto. And, it led to the discovery of three tons of Ammonium Nitrate, which is precisely three times that which was used in the Okalhoma City Bombing:


Last night's dramatic police raid and arrest of as many as a dozen men — with more to come — marks the culmination of Canada's largest ever terrorism investigation into an alleged homegrown cell.

The chain of events began two years ago, sparked by local teenagers roving through Internet sites, reading and espousing anti-Western sentiments and vowing to attack at home, in the name of oppressed Muslims here and abroad.

Their words were sometimes encrypted, the Internet sites where they communicated allegedly restricted by passwords, but Canadian spies back in 2004 were reading them. And as the youths' words turned into actions, they began watching them.

According to sources close to the investigation, the suspects are teenagers and men in their 20s who had a relatively typical Canadian upbringing, but — allegedly spurred on by images of conflict in Iraq and Afghanistan and angered by what they saw as the mistreatment of Muslims at home — became increasingly violent.

Police say they acquired weapons, picked targets and made detailed plans.

They travelled north to a "training camp" and made propaganda videos imitating jihadists who had battled in Afghanistan. At night, they washed up at a Tim Hortons nearby.

One was a math and chemistry whiz from Scarborough who grew up to become a 22-year-old husband and father.

It's unclear why the authorities decided to act on their suspicions yesterday.


Threats Watch has this:


The Royal Canadian Mounted Police conducted a counterterrorism raid in the Greater Toronto Area involving over 400 personnel and broke a Canadian terrorist cell planning to bomb Canadian targets. Twelve adult Muslim jihadists and five juveniles were arrested, some of them second-generation Canadian citizens and some of them recent immigrants. They ranged in ages from in their 20’s to teens. They arrested group was described as “Muslims, but not Arabs” and unconnected to the UK raid yesterday in attempts to break up a British chemical attack plot.

According to RCMP Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell, the group had ordered and received into their possession over three tons of ammonium nitrate, the fertilizer component used in making an explosive slurry. Clearly a massive amount, probably intended to make several huge bombs, this is three times the amount of ammonium nitrate used in the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City.


So, the Toronto terror raid was even larger, in terms of manpower used, than the London raids of yesterday.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police released the names of the "youths" involved:


TORONTO, June 3 /CNW/ - On Friday, June 2, 2006, members of the RoyalCanadian Mounted Police and partners of the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team arrested 12 individuals and charged them under Section 83 of the Criminal Code of Canada.

This group took steps to acquire three tonnes of ammonium nitrate and other components necessary to create explosive devices," said Assistant Commissioner Mike McDonell. "To put this in context, the 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168 people took one tonne of ammonium nitrate."

Arrested and charged with offences under the Criminal Code of Canada are:

1. Fahim Ahmad, 21, of Robinstone Drive, Toronto, Ontario;
2. Zakaria Amara, 20, of Periwinkle Crescent, Mississauga, Ontario;
3. Asad Ansari, 21, of Rosehurst Drive, Mississauga, Ontario;
4. Shareef Abdelhaleen, 30, of Lowville Heights, Mississauga, Ontario;
5. Qayyum Abdul Jamal, 43, of Montevideo Road, Mississauga, Ontario;
6. Mohammed Dirie, 22, Kingston, Ontario;
7. Yasim Abdi Mohamed, 24, Kingston, Ontario;
8. Jahmaal James, 23, of Trudelle Street, Toronto, Ontario;
9. Amin Mohamed Durrani, 19, of Stonehill Court, Toronto, Ontario;
10. Steven Vikash Chand alias Abdul Shakur, 25, of Treverton Drive, Toronto, Ontario;
11. Ahmad Mustafa Ghany, 21, of Robin Drive, Mississauga, Ontario;
12. Saad Khalid, 19, of Eclipse Avenue, Mississauga, Ontario.


Isn't it just a bit queer that none of those "youths" have names that sound either English or French, which is what one would have expected if they were taken from a cross-section of the Canadian population.

Queer indeed.

Unbelievably funny - greenies must oppose immigration

Migration ‘harmful’ to Earth
THE growing number of people who migrated from developing countries to over-populated Western states in search of a better life was damaging the planet and could be avoided, a think-tank said today.

Governments and aid agencies should encourage families to stay put by tackling environmental degradation, such as the spread of deserts, that forces many to leave, rather than promote migration, the Optimum Population Trust (OPT), a British group that campaigns for a sustainable population, said.

Parts of the planet that have been damaged by climate change, soil erosion and water shortages merely deteriorated further once their inhabitants fled.

In addition, migrants typically increased their ecological footprint – the damage each person inflicts on the environment – by moving from low to high-consuming countries.

The ecological footprint of someone from Bangladesh increases sixteen-fold if he or she emigrated to the US, while that of a Somali citizen rises more than thirteen-times when he or she migrated to Britain.

The push factors behind migration could only be solved by reducing the impact of consumption and population in richer countries and supporting environmentally sustainable development in poorer nations, the OPT said.

OPT patron Professor Aubrey Manning said Britain was morally obliged to accept some migrants “but we need immigration like we need a hole in the head”.

Toronto Terror Arrests Update: 12 Arrested - Sources Say Canadians Intelligence Planted Story

As I have been saying, I believe intelligence officials in Canada, the United States, and Britain have been releasing stories about their "urgent" tracking of terror-cells. In this story, about yesterdays arrest in Toronto, an anonymous source confirms my suspicion:


“The RCMP, CSIS and the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team arrested individuals throughout the GTA today in relation to terrorist-related offences,” confirmed RCMP spokesman Corp. Michele Paradis.

As of about 9 p.m. last night, Paradis also added “there are ongoing arrests.”

Though unconfirmed, sources have told the Sun police arrested a possible home-grown al-Qaeda terrorist cell operating in Toronto that had planned to bomb the subway as early as Monday.

Just three days ago, Sun columnist Joe Warmington wrote about two men spotted filming the subway system on May 23 at Keele station, which raised alarm bells with Toronto Police and CSIS.

But sources also tell the Sun that the RCMP “planted” that story with the media, though reasons remain unclear.

Police had been watching several alleged terrorist camps since 2004 — one of which is reported to be in the Muskokas near Bracebridge and another near Thunder Bay, a police source told Warmington late last night.

“Recently some officers followed two men who left the camp near Thunder Bay and headed to Toronto,” said the source.

Another Sun source said there was a similar “terrorist” camp near Barry’s Bay — within an hour’s drive of several Ontario nuclear operations.

Other source also tell the Sun the arrested individuals were amassing weapons.
“This is huge, this is massive.”



Intelligence sources only have one reason to release information with regards to ongoing investigations; they feel they have lost track of some of the cells, so they are resorting to attempting to intimidate all cells into believing they are being tracked.

Also, it is important to note that there are ongoing and massive, "urgent" investigations going on in three major Western countries all at the same time.

I believe there are plans for a major multi-national coordinated attack on Western targets.

It is very hard to believe that Canada would be a target, and yet Europe is not. I think we can surmise that there may well also be plans for France, Denmark, Holland, Sweden, and possibly Germany. However, those countries have released no information of late with regards to ongoing investigations.

Does that mean they feel they have the situation under control? Or, does it mean they are hiding their heads in the sand?

I think we may see more arrests in more Western nations in the next few days.

Ahmadinejad: "A Man of the People's Needs and Wants"

(All emphases by Always On Watch)

So reads a front-page headline in the June 3, 2006 edition of the Washington Post. Excerpt:

"'I actually wrote him two letters,' said Reza Karimi, 41. 'One was about the problems we have in this neighborhood. The other was about my problems.

"'Of course,' Karimi added with a wave of the hand, 'I do not expect him to answer me individually. But I believe he would at least solve the problem of the neighborhood.

"'I believe if he really could, he would help us.'

"That belief, far more than anything Ahmadinejad has said about nuclear power or the Holocaust, defines Iran's energetic president for the people who elected him almost a year ago, as well as the legions he appears to have won over since taking office in August. If his image in the West is that of a banty radical dangerously out of touch with reality -- 'a psychopath of the worst kind,' in the words of Israel's prime minister -- the prevailing impression in Iran is precisely the opposite.

"Here, ordinary people marvel at how their president comes across as someone in touch, as populist candidate turned caring incumbent. In speeches, 17-hour workdays and biweekly trips like the one that brought him here to Central Province, Ahmadinejad showcases a relentless preoccupation with the health, housing and, most of all, money problems that may barely register on the global agenda but represent the most clear and present danger for most in this nation of 70 million.

"'It's good to have a very kind person near you, caring about your problems,' said Akram Rashidi, 34, at the counter of a stationery store where the run on envelopes outpaced the supply of change. 'The important thing is that the president and important people are caring about the people.'"

Here is the last portion of the above article:

"'People have high expectations,' said Rashidi, at the stationery shop. Her look was introspective as she told of accompanying her sister to see Ahmadinejad when he was still Tehran's mayor, to appeal a zoning issue. There was no result, but what she remembered, years later, was having his attention.

"In Khomein, Zabihollah Sarlak asked Ahmadinejad to see that his mentally disabled son is looked after if he should die. 'He promised everybody, but he also said it'll take some time,' said Sarlak, 50. 'He said if you buy a kilo of meat at the market and take it home and cook it, it takes time.

"'But he'll do what he says.'"

The interviewees in the article appear to be social utopians, a failed doctrine if ever there was one. But the larger question might be this: Is Ahmadinejad also a Mahdi-utopian?

Taqqiya in Temple, or how I learned to stop worrrying and love the baloney

Another interesting friday night.
freedom_of_worship.jpg
We know many people (apparently) who have taken it upon themselves to host foreign students who have come to the USA.
Last night I was invited to hear one of them speak at a local temple.
You might assume from this that the young man was staying with a local jewish family up here in Normal Rockwell america. You would be right.

So Mrs. Epaminondas and I headed over to the temple where instead of the sermon, this young man was introduced, and began with only a little nervousness to speak about his home, his nation, it's history, his religion, and his life.

His name was Mahmoud, and he is from Egypt.
This was not the only surprise.

6-6-06? - Huge Anti-Terror Raids In Toronto

In one day, we had the raids in London, involving 250 police, some, apparently, wearing chemical-weapons gear, and now, another involving more than 100 police in Toronto:


The RCMP plan to answer more questions on Saturday about a series of raids and arrests in the Toronto area on Friday.

At least eight people were taken into custody on terrorism-related charges, though there is little more information available.

More than 100 officers were involved in the sweep, including members of the Integrated National Security Enforcement Team.

More arrests and more charges are expected overnight.

The RCMP will release more details at a news conference on Saturday.


Last week, news came out of both the United States and the UK, that officials were conducting urgent surveillance of terrorist cells in big cities across both countries. I noted at the time that the only reason intelligence officials would release such information is if they felt that an attack was imminent. In other words, the only reason to release such info is if intelligence did not feel they had a handle on the situation.

Here, we see that British intelligence, and Canadian intelligence have moved, but, the question remains, are there more terrorist cells out there?

I can't but help thinking all these events, and announcements, are related. And, I have to wonder, considering the Islamofascists obsession with dates (9/11, 3/11, 7/7, 7/21), if the 6-6-06 date looms as a real tempation for them

Neville Chamberlain Redux

Guest Editorial by Edward Cline:

“The world must be made safe for democracy,” said President Woodrow Wilson to Congress on April 2nd, 1917, some months after he proposed “peace without victory.” Four days later Congress approved a declaration of war against Germany. Wilson could have asked for a declaration much earlier. German submarines were sinking neutral American shipping in a policy of unrestricted submarine warfare, five merchant ships being sunk in February and March that year alone.

Wilson had been waiting for a more “overt” act of belligerence against the U.S other than the loss of American lives at sea at German hands. But the most recent sinkings, together with the Zimmermann note to the German minister in Mexico, forced him to face reality. The Zimmermann note pledged Germany to support Mexico in an invasion of the U.S. southwest to deter certain American entry into the European conflict until after Germany had beaten Britain and France to exhaustion. If the U.S. declared war, German foreign minister Alfred Zimmermann instructed his minister in Mexico to assure Mexico that “we shall make war together and together make peace. We shall give generous financial support and it is understood that Mexico is to reconquer the lost territory in New Mexico, Texas and Arizona.”

A declaration of war was not what Wilson had in mind as an altruist “tonic of a moral adventure,” as editor and fellow Progressive Herbert Croly had prescribed for America years before. Rather, it was the role of mediator and “peace maker” in the conflicts and international disputes of the early 20th century.

Shuttle ahead ninety years to Georgetown University, where British Prime Minister Tony Blair, in remarks about the “new” global politics, proclaimed, “Idealism becomes the realpolitik.” An essential part of that “idealism” is the introduction of “democracy” in regions of the world that have seen no legitimate governments in over a century, chiefly because their inhabitants did not know what to do with democracy, except to vote themselves new tyrants or tolerate old ones. Democracy, however, means mob rule, no matter how legitimate it sounds. It recognizes no individual rights that a majority cannot abridge or abrogate.

Even Wilson’s contemporary, Vladimir Lenin, understood that. “Democracy is not identical with majority rule.” Off by one adverb in that statement, he elucidates the point in contradiction of himself. “Democracy is a State which recognizes the subjection of the minority to the majority, that is, an organization for the systematic use of force by one class against the other, by one part of the population against another.” (Chapter 4, State and Revolution, 1919) Which is why democracy was as much his enemy as “capitalistic” republicanism, to be ruthlessly crushed. After all, in terms of a nation’s population, a totalitarian party’s members are always in the minority.

The point here is that President Bush’s and Mr. Blair’s “idealism” does not fundamentally differ from Wilson’s. Its moral core consists of blind duty and the sacrifice of wealth and of lives to accomplish the spread of democracy. Integral to the concept is that the U.S. should eschew its selfish isolationism and adopt a proactive, Kantian “moral” role to correct wrongs wherever it might see them. Our political leaders are ruled by the little Prussian’s categorical imperative to “do the right thing” regardless of cost, self-interest, or even of consequence.

“Democracy,” rather than being an object of populist appeal or simply because it is easier for politicians to pronounce than “constitutional republic” (which is what the U.S. is becoming less and less), thus complements such “idealist realpolitik.” That is the true character of Mr. Blair’s “realpolitik.” It is the “idealism” of humility, retreat, and ultimate self-destruction.

In the conflict with Iran and its neo-Hitlerian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, Bush contends that the issue of Iran’s nuclear weapons development can be resolved with “robust diplomacy.” That was Wilson’s premise behind his proposal for an international peace conference to end the fighting between the European powers, and the basis of Neville Chamberlain’s negotiations with Nazi Germany.

Wilson also said, in April 1915, that “No nation is fit to sit in judgment upon any other nation.” Both Bush and Blair have refined that idea, alleging that no religion is fit to sit in judgment of any other creed. Their altruist, Christian premises forbid them to condemn Islam, and allow them to claim that Islam is not the motivating force behind terrorism. It has been “hijacked,” or “perverted.”

Anyone who has read the Koran knows this is an absurd notion, as absurd a notion that Hitler “hijacked” Nazism or that Stalin “perverted” communism. But, then, Bush and Blair believe in democracy, as well.

Some commentators may suspect that the May 31st news that the U.S. is willing to negotiate directly with Iran is a ruse to assure world opinion that it is not trying to bully Iran into giving up its nuclear enrichment program, and that it does not intend to employ force against Iran.

Given recent developments, we can believe that it is not a ruse. President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice are willing to take both of Ahmadinejad’s hands and personally lead him to the higher plateau of international amity, global peace, and pure “democracy,” with Prime Minister Blair, Europe, Russia, China and others flinging confetti and flowers at them. Ahmadinejad can snarl and missile-rattle all he wishes; Bush and Rice are willing to forget dignity and take the abuse in the name of a higher cause.

Ahmadinejad is a beast, they agree. But he is there, a metaphysical given, and must be dealt with without igniting more conflict or exacerbating existing animosity. Ma Rice acknowledges that Iran is a supporter of terrorism “in Lebanon and Palestinian territories,” she remarked at a news conference, according to an Associated Press report on May 31st. But, “Iran can and should be a responsible state.” No mention by her or Bush of its support of terrorism in Iraq, where Iran’s “insurgent” proxies and planners are picking off Americans and Iraqis by the busload. Apparently, that is not “overt’ enough an act of war.

Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan were also metaphysical givens. Our policy more than half a century ago was to erase those givens, and that was the end of that. There were no negotiating “tables” to lure dictators to in the name of peace, just the burnt out shell of the Reichstag and the wind-blown ashes of Hiroshima.

As John Lewis remarked in correspondence elsewhere in response to the AP report, “Note that Rice’s admission that Iran has a right to nuclear energy is the same error the British made prior to WW II, when they accepted that Germany had the same ‘right to self-determination’ as other nations.”

Iran’s “self-determination,” in light of its record and especially in view of Ahmadinejad’s bellicose rantings, includes the “destiny” of ruling the Mideast by force or subversion, the annihilation of Israel, and setting the terms of peace with the rest of the world in a quest for a Pax Persia via nuclear payload.

In the staring contest between Ahmadinejad, Bush and Rice, the pragmatists blinked. So they must always blink when facing bellicosity. Their concept of ensuring national security is to offer the aggressor bribes, such as the U.S and Britain did in Vienna on June 1st, and to rule out military force.

The “realpolitik” of U.S. policy to date has been one of uncompromising pragmatism. Pragmatism as an “ideal” and as a policy must by its nature sacrifice the good to evil; otherwise it would not be pragmatism. Evil derives its strength from compromised and ultimately vanquished principles. Pragmatism discounts principles as a guide to moral conduct; they are forgotten in a rush to keep a nemesis at bay.

The principle left behind here is the right of the U.S. to its self-defense against a threatening rogue state. Reason and reality have no role in a policy of pragmatism. Yet, despite pragmatism’s sorry and costly role in history, especially in the 20th century, current leaders are convinced that pragmatism is the only “moral” path to follow. They are determined to make it “work.” But it works only to the benefit of the enemies of civilization.

The New York Times, under the chortling headline on June 1st, “Bush’s Realization on Iran: No Good Choice Left Except Talk,” reported that the president asked Rice “several months ago that he needed ‘a third option,’ a way to get beyond either a nuclear Iran or an American military action.” The term “beyond” is eloquently appropriate; it suggests an excursion into fantasyland in search of a Star Trekian “Prime Directive.” Bush has explicitly rejected an “either/or” in favor of an evasive, non-confrontational middle course.

One must wonder about the psychology of men who are so afraid of absolutes that they are willing to acknowledge a threat but never the rational course of action to take to remove one. According to the AP report, when Rice was asked about the possibility of the U.S. reestablishing diplomatic relations with Iran, Rice “ruled out a ‘grand bargain.’ However, she said a negotiated solution to the nuclear dispute could ‘begin to change the relationship.’”

“Nobody is confused about the nature of this regime,” said Rice at a news conference held to announce the alleged shift in policy. “We are not negotiating the terms of terrorism.”

Were she and Bush genuinely confused about the nature of Iran’s regime, it might be forgivable. But she names what she and Bush both know, and that makes the action an unforgivable betrayal. In effect, their willingness to “come to the table” to talk is, in effect, a willingness to negotiate the terms of terrorism.

Is it any wonder that Ahmadinejad is so contemptuously confident that Islam will triumph? Even psychopaths like him can sense cowardice and smell blood. Ahmadinejad has mastered Hitler’s playbook of the 1930’s.

The overture to the U.S.’s creeping, inevitable capitulation on Iran was reported in the Los Angeles Times of May 26th under the appropriate headline, “The Tyranny Doctrine.”

“Last week, Secretary of State…Rice announced resumption of full U.S. diplomatic relations with Libya, citing Tripoli’s renunciation of terrorism and intelligence cooperation.” The article asserts that this move “marks an effective end to the Bush doctrine.”

Rather, it highlights a continuation of the Bush doctrine of non-judgmental pragmatism, which has been to take the path of least resistance and greatest expediency, to avoid confronting major threats and to expend lives and treasure on incidentals, such as Iraq and Afghanistan. Not to mention, in this instance, a forgiving of Libyan dictator Qadhaffi for the murder of hundreds of Westerners by his own army of jihadists. There is “realpolitik” for you.

The Los Angeles Times article goes on to list Bush’s record of non-achievements in his pursuit of global “democracy”:

“The Bush administration has watched Egypt abrogate elections, ignored the collapse of the so-called Cedar Revolution in Lebanon and abandoned Chinese dissidents; now Washington is mulling a peace treaty with Stalinist North Korea.”

The mare’s nest of pragmatism and its consequences grows nastier, thicker and more perilous. When will Bush have his own “reality check” and grasp the true nature of our enemies? When we experience another September 11th?

Bush, at his second inauguration, stated: “The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands. The best hope for peace in our world is the expansion of freedom in all the world.” The first half of this statement is not strictly true; liberty in America can succeed without it succeeding elsewhere in the world. But what if the rest of the world rejects the peace that freedom can bring, and chooses the “peace” of submission, tyranny or conquest?

The world, indeed, is being made safe, but not for freedom.

Educating Hamas

In her presentation at the April 29, 2006 America's Truth Forum Symposium, Brigitte Gabriel mentioned that Hamas has cells right here in the United States, in forty of our fifty states. She rattled off a list so rapidly that I couldn't take down every U.S. city mentioned.

The very next day, an article about some of Hamas's members having received higher education here in our universities appeared in the Washington Post....

Muslim Public Affairs Council Incites Violence After London Arrests

From Melanie Phillips:


If British intelligence is anything to go by, we can only hope the sleeping Muslims of East London will wake up and rise against the tyrrany [sic] being perpetrated against our youth in the name of combating terrorism.


Does that sound like an incitement for the "youths" to riot, or what?

You want to tell me this Jihad is not worldwide and coorinated?

Desperate Search On For Chemical Vest After London Arrests

Apparently, these guys were getting ready to unleash a chemical weapons attack on Londoners. In fact, as the whereabouts of the vest is still unknown, it is possible an attack is still imminent:


A DESPERATE search is under way for a “chemical vest” that a British suicide bomber was ready to deploy in a terror attack on London.

Police fear that the strike, using a home-made chemical device, was imminent after an informant told MI5 that he had seen the lethal garment at the home of two young men.

Last night detectives were at the hospital bedside of a 23-year-old postal worker shot during a pre-dawn raid on his parents’ home, while his younger brother, aged 20, was being questioned at Paddington Green high security police station.

Armed officers who led the assault on the terraced house in Forest Gate, East London, wore oxygen masks and protective chemical gear after a tip-off from MI5 that the device had already been assembled.

Security chiefs are deeply concerned that there was no sign of the vest inside what they believe is a chemical bomb factory.

No weapons were found either as officers searched the two adjoining properties that have been converted to accommodate a large Bangladeshi family.

Deputy Assistant Commissioner Peter Clarke, head of Scotland Yard’s Anti-Terrorist Branch, said that the raid, codenamed Operation Volga, was ordered in response to “specific intelligence”.

He said that there had been no time to conduct further surveillance, which suggests that the police believed a terrorist was close to launching an attack. The fear is that if chemicals were to be used then a likely target could be a train compartment on the London Underground.

Another theory is that a suicide attacker, wearing the vest under a shirt, could trigger the device in a crowded venue, such as a pub full of people watching an England World Cup match.

It is understood that the main target in yesterday’s raid was the postal worker, who was hit in the shoulder by a single shot fired by a police marksman.

OOPSI ! Iran struggling with U.S.-backed insurgencies in its western border areas


NICOSIA — Iran appears frustrated over the Arab and Kurdish insurgency in the western part of the country.

Officials said Teheran has failed to quell the insurgency in both northwestern and southwestern Iran, along the Iraqi border. They said Arab and Kurdish separatists, financed by Britain and the United States, have maintained a stream of attacks against Iranian government targets in the region.

"There has been a proliferation of conspiracies," said Iranian deputy parliamentary speaker Mohammed Reza Bahonar.

[On early May 24, protests erupted in Teheran's two major universities, followed by clashes between students and police. About 40 officers were injured by stones hurled by students from Teheran University protesting the dismissal of professors.]

Bahonar said the government has lost control over the provinces along both the Iraqi and Afghan border. He said parliament could transfer security for these provinces to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

"It has been almost proven that security actions alone cannot solve the problems," Bahonar said. "There should be a combination of security and intelligence work, and the disciplinary force of the country should use its capabilities to the best advantage."

Teheran has blamed the United States and its allies for fomenting unrest along Iran's borders. Iran has several large minorities, including Azeris in the north, Kurds and Arabs in the west and ethnic Afghans in the east.

In the east, Teheran has sought to block the flow of heroin from Afghanistan, which has helped create a huge drug problem in Iran. Al Qaida has also used the drug route.

Officials said the Supreme National Security Council would soon explore the use of the IRGC and Basij in border areas. The Basij has already been trained for border security.


And...more from Iran on PLO/HAMAS

Iran's navy developing swarm strategy against U.S. warships

From Gertz, excerpted
phalanx2.jpg

The Iran navy has procured hundreds of fast patrol boats as part of what is believed to be a swarm strategy to overcome the firepower of U.S. cruisers and destroyers.

Gulf analysts said the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has deployed and trained hundreds of FPBs in the northern Gulf to surround and attack U.S. and Western warships. The analysts said the Iranian concept is to overcome U.S. firepower superiority with the stealth and speed of small patrol boats.

"We are talking about a new sort of warfare that could work or not," a Gulf Arab analyst said. "It's never been really tried."

Under the purported Iranian concept, the FPBs would be armed with torpedoes and rockets that could be quickly fired from short range. The analysts said the radars of U.S. destroyers would be unable to detect small Iranian speedboats in the northern Gulf.

These boats could be filled with explosives and rammed into U.S. surface vessels, the analysts said. They cited the success of an Al Qaida attack that crippled the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000.

Over the past six weeks, the Iranian navy conducted two exercises in the northern Gulf designed to test the swarm strategy. The analysts could not assess the results of the exercises.

Still, the U.S. Navy has been preparing for such an Iranian swarm assault. In 2002, the Navy held an exercise called Millennium Challenge in which a swarm of fast boats sought to destroy a U.S. fleet.

Jimmy Carter Declares War On America


When he gets into this position, he feels as if he is thinking.

Well, no, he has not come right out and said it, but, he pals around with the family of Osama Bin Laden:


Former President Jimmy Carter's center in Atlanta received more than $1 million from the family of Osama bin Laden, according to an investigative report.

A brother of the al-Qaida terrorist leader, Bakr M. bin Laden, funneled the money to the Carter Center in Atlanta through the Saudi Bin Laden Group, according to Melanie Morgan, chairman of a group opposing the Georgia Democrat called the Censure Carter Committee.

Morgan, a WorldNetDaily columnist, based her claim on papers she acquired from the Carter Center.

She points to a report showing Carter met with 10 of Osama bin Laden's brothers early in 2000. The former president and his wife, Rosalyn, followed up the meeting with a breakfast with Bakr bin Laden in September 2000 and secured the first $200,000 towards the more than $1 million that has gone to the Carter Center.

Morgan says the connection between Carter and the bin Laden family is exactly the kind of charge leveled by Michael Moore against President Bush in the film "Fahrenheit 9/11."

Morgan's group commented in a statement: "If you think this news troubles Michael Moore and his friends in the liberal, anti-war crowd, think again. You see, they’re not interested in the truth – they only seem interested in advancing their defeatist political message: America is almost always wrong–America is the source of many of the world’s problems."

There's some hypocrisy at work here, Morgan contends.

"Michael Moore used his film to viciously attack George W. Bush and undermine support for the war on terror," she told John Gibson on the Fox News Channel.

It turns out it was Carter, not Bush, hanging out with the bin Ladens, she said.

The Carters hosted Moore in the presidential viewing box at the 2004 Democratic National Convention while former President Bill Clinton addressed the delegates.

Gibson said the Carter Center declined the opportunity to respond to the charges.

Censure Carter is about to launch a second wave of national television ads urging Americans to rebuke Carter's efforts in North Korea, Iraq, Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and elsewhere.

"The mainstream media is pretending that the Carter-bin Laden story is a non-issue, so the Censure Carter Campaign is out raising the money to air the facts in TV ads," the group says.


Yesterday, on CUANAS, I posted an excerpt from an article by columnist Julia Gorin which documented Carter's history of anti-Semitism. Considering this is the way he feels, it ought to be no surprise that, in the year 2000, he would pal around with the family of the man who declared war on America in 1996, and who has made it clear that his mission is to kill Infidels and Jews.

Sisters Of Hamas Leader Live Secretly In Israel

Gee, don't you wonder why they have chosen to NOT live in the Peaceful State Of Palestine?


Israel regards Ismail Haniyeh, the Palestinian Hamas prime minister, as an enemy of state. But three of his sisters enjoy full Israeli citizenship, having moved 30 years ago to the desert town of Tel Sheva.

Some of their offspring have even served in the Israeli army, the force responsible for decades of Israeli occupation in Gaza and the West Bank, an occupation that the Islamist movement, Hamas, was founded to fight.

The Daily Telegraph tracked down the Haniyeh sisters, --------, ----- and -----, to a town in southern Israel. That they live in Israel is a closely guarded secret and nowhere is it guarded more secretly than Tel Sheva, a town inhabited mainly by Israeli Bedouin on the edge of the Negev desert.


Yes, it was a closely guarded secret, until the Telegraph published the names of the sisters so Imams all over the world would know who to issue Fatwas on.

Stuff That Seems To Be OK With Barbara Schuddenboom

Here's a little report on Saudi Arabian textbooks, based upon the research of Ali Ahmed of the Insitute for Gulf Affairs:


Nearly four years ago, Saudi dissident Ali al-Ahmed and author Stephen Schwartz conducted a study for the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. They examined textbooks and other publications distributed by the Saudi government and by Saudi-funded organizations. They found such messages as these:

“Judaism and Christianity are deviant religions.”

“The unbelievers, idolaters and others like them must be hated and despised.”

“We say to every Christian and every Jew and all those outside Islam, ‘your children are born into Islam, but you and their mother take them away from Islam with your corrupt rearing.'”

Since then, Saudi spokesmen, assisted by high-priced Washington public relations professionals, have claimed that such intolerant views were no longer being promoted by the rulers of Arabia.

Saudi advisor Adel al-Jubeir -- recently awarded an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters by the University of North Texas – stated last year: “We have reviewed our educational curriculums. We have removed materials that are inciteful (sic) or intolerant towards people of other faiths.”


Prince Turki al-Faisal, the new Saudi ambassador to the United States, said recently: “Not only have we eliminated what might be perceived as intolerance from old textbooks that were in our system, we have implemented a comprehensive internal revision and moderation plan.”


But these spokesmen are misinformed. Ali al-Ahmed, now head of the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs, obtained a dozen textbooks used during the current academic year by the Saudi Ministry of Education. He turned them over to Freedom House which then had the materials translated by two independent Arabic speakers. Among the messages included:

“The apes are Jews, the people of the Sabbath; while the swine are the Christians, the infidels of the communion of Jesus.”

“The clash between this [Muslim] community and the Jews and Christians has endured, and it will continue as long as God wills.”

“Whoever obeys the Prophet and accepts the oneness of God cannot maintain a loyal friendship with those who oppose God and His Prophet, even if they are his closest relatives.”

“This indoctrination,” wrote Nina Shea, director of Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom, “begins in a first-grade text and is reinforced and expanded each year. By the 12th grade, students following the Saudi curriculum will be instructed that their religious obligation includes waging jihad against the infidel to ‘spread the faith.'”

What's more, such ideas are being taught not only to Saudi students but also to children in Saudi-funded schools in Pakistan, Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Italy – and the United States as well.


A year back, Freedom House's Center for Religious Freedom did a study of literature in American Mosques:


The 89-page report, “Saudi Publications on Hate Ideology Fill American Mosques,” is based on a year-long study of over two hundred original documents, all disseminated, published or otherwise generated by the government of Saudi Arabia and collected from more than a dozen mosques in the United States.

The report is available on the Freedom House website at: http://freedomhouse.org/religion/

The propagation of hate ideology by Saudi Arabia is known to be worldwide, but its occurrence within the United States has received scant attention until now. Within worldwide Sunni Islam, followers of Saudi Arabia’s extremist Wahhabi ideology are a distinct minority, as is evident by the millions of Muslims who have chosen to make America their home and are upstanding, law-abiding citizens and neighbors.

The report concludes that the Saudi government propaganda examined reflects a “totalitarian ideology of hatred that can incite to violence,” and the fact that it is “being mainstreamed within our borders through the efforts of a foreign government, namely Saudi Arabia, demands our urgent attention.” The report finds: “Not only does the government of Saudi Arabia not have a right – under the First Amendment or any other legal document – to spread hate ideology within U.S. borders, it is committing a human rights violation by doing so.”

Such publications that “advocate an ideology of hatred have no place in a nation founded on religious freedom and toleration,” write James Woolsey, chairman of the board of Freedom House, in the foreword to the report.

Among the key findings of the report:

• Various Saudi government publications gathered for this study, most of which are in Arabic, assert that it is a religious obligation for Muslims to hate Christians and Jews and warn against imitating, befriending, or helping them in any way, or taking part in their festivities and celebrations;

• The documents promote contempt for the United States because it is ruled by legislated civil law rather than by totalitarian Wahhabi-style Islamic law. They condemn democracy as un-Islamic;

• The documents stress that when Muslims are in the lands of the unbelievers, they must behave as if on a mission behind enemy lines. Either they are there to acquire new knowledge and make money to be later employed in the jihad against the infidels, or they are there to proselytize the infidels until at least some convert to Islam. Any other reason for lingering among the unbelievers in their lands is illegitimate,

• For a Muslim who fails to uphold the Saudi Wahhabi sect’s sexual mores (i.e. through homosexual activity or heterosexual activity outside of marriage), the edicts published by the Saudi government’s Ministry of Islamic Affairs, and found in American mosques advise, “it would be lawful for Muslims to spill his blood and to take his money;”

• Regarding those who convert out of Islam, the Saudi Ministry of Islamic Affairs explicitly asserts, they “should be killed;”

• Saudi textbooks and other publications in the collection, propagate a Nazi-like hatred for Jews, treat the forged Protocols of the Elders of Zion as historical fact, and avow that the Muslim’s duty is to eliminate the state of Israel;

• Regarding women, the Saudi publications instruct that they should be veiled, segregated from men and barred from certain employment and roles ...


In the actual body of the report, it is asserted that, according to King Fahd, Saudi Arabia has funded more than 1,500 Mosques, 200 Universities, and 2,000 schools for educating children in the United States alone.

I called up Ali Ahmed, of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, identified myself as Pastorius the blogger, and asked him if, in his opinion, this literature is still in American Schools and Mosques to this day. His response was,

"Yes. In fact, you can call the Saudi Embassy and ask them to send you iformation on Islam, and they will freely send such literature. The phone number is 202-342-3800."

I asked Mr. al-Ahmed if American Muslims agree with such literature. He indicated that most don't, but added, "The problem is they will not stand up against it. I do not stand for shutting anyone up. But, when it is government sponsored, we need to act against it. Our world will not be able to live in peace if such things are tolerated. We need to go beyond tolerance to take right action against this kind of thing."

Ali al-Ahmed put it as well as I could have.

The fact is, there is no major Muslim organization working against such hatred. Ali al-Ahmed's Institute is a lobbying organization, based in Washington D.C., concerned with international affairs. As such he does good work, but the work he does does not reach down to the common Muslim.

Some organization needs to be formed which speaks for average Muslims, and which will stand up and speak out against this kind of evil. Until this happens, the distrust among Infidels will increase. At a certain point, this distrust will build and become dangerous.

I suggest that Muslims get together and invited us Christians, Jews, etc., down to their Mosques on a Saturday afternoon for a day of clearing out the hate literature. We can pack up the crap, put it in the trunks of our cars and haul it down to the local recycling plant.

A simple step such as this could reap huge dividends for the Muslim community.

Man Shot in MI5 & Police Anti-Terrorism Raid in London

A man has been shot by police during a raid involving 250 officers carried out under the Terrorism Act. He was taken to a nearby hospital after police searched a house in Forest Gate, east London. His injuries are not life-threatening.

The decision to launch the raid followed discussions between MI5, the anti-terrorist branch and the Health Protection Agency.
Residents said Forest Gate was a typical east London "mixed" community with a large number of Bengali and Pakistani families, along with a recent influx of Eastern Europeans.

One neighbour said the operation early this morning had involved "the most police I've seen in my life".
Another neighbour said a family lived at the address. "They were respectable and nice people and we do not know anything else. They have always been nice to us," she said.

Always decent, good people. Like this "peaceful" Australian jihadist

"They have lived there for a long time. The kids all go to school locally."


That's because they're all assimilated, bruv.

UPDATE: A 5 mile air exclusion zone is in force according to the BBC video feed

UPDATE 2: From Sky news

Dimple Hirani, 21, a student at London Metropolitan University, said she might have gone to school with one of the teenage boys from the family.

I went to that University! I quit early from my degree due to the number of Bin Laden supporters, support for the 9/11 attacks and opposition to the war on the Taliban.

She said: "If it's the house I'm thinking of, I went to school with one of the lads. They were really nice lads and really nice people. I never thought anything of it. Lots of young Muslims these days are getting more religious, especially after 9/11. It's nothing to be suspicious about."

Some Knew Bush was an Open Borders Anarchist in 2000

Lawrence Auster has a right on target assessment of Bush in 2000 in his September 2000 article "My Bush Ephiphany." Now as we contemplate the insane Senate "Destroy America" Immigration Bill, we can look back at Larry's article and say, 'the clues were all there, why didn't we see this liberal Democrat in Republican drag?'

My Bush epiphany

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted: September 20, 2000
1:00 a.m. Eastern


By Lawrence Auster
© 2000 WorldNetDaily.com


A few weeks before he was nominated as the Republican candidate for president of the United States, I happened to see Bob Dole being interviewed on TV. As I watched, everything I knew about Dole came to mind -- the love for big government that he had unembarrassedly revealed in his Senate retirement speech a few days earlier, the constant hints and sardonic asides by which he distanced himself from conservatives and accommodated himself to liberals, even the way his eyes kept shifting from side to side as he spoke. Suddenly the thought flashed into my mind: "He's not on our side; he's on their side."

....

On the matter of national identity, W. delivered in Miami on Aug. 25 a major address on U.S.-Latin American relations, in which he unveiled a startling -- at least for a Republican -- view of America. We should pay close attention to his words:


We are now one of the largest Spanish-speaking nations in the world. We're a major source of Latin music, journalism and culture.
Just go to Miami, or San Antonio, Los Angeles, Chicago or West New York, New Jersey ... and close your eyes and listen. You could just as easily be in Santo Domingo or Santiago, or San Miguel de Allende.

For years our nation has debated this change -- some have praised it and others have resented it. By nominating me, my party has made a choice to welcome the new America.

Let us be clear that W. is not (as Republican politicians including Reagan have done for decades) celebrating immigrants from diverse backgrounds on the assumption that they are becoming part of our culture and way of life. On the contrary, he is applauding the expansion and the increasingly dominant role of the Hispanic culture and the Spanish language in this country. He is explicitly welcoming the very things that are making America less and less like its historical self and more and more like Latin America.

To repeat, this is not the usual establishment conservative line of "immigration with assimilation." This is multiculturalism, the view of America as a collection of unassimilated yet "equal" cultures in which our former national culture will be progressively downgraded and marginalized.

Also surprising is W.'s claim that Republicans have "made a choice to welcome the new America." Did Republicans realize that by nominating W. they were not only committing themselves to a pro-multicultural candidate, but shutting down all debate on the issue?

Complementing W.'s support for the Hispanicization of American culture was his view of Mexico-U.S. relations:


I have a vision for our two countries. The United States is destined to have a "special relationship" with Mexico, as clear and strong as we have had with Canada and Great Britain. Historically, we have had no closer friends and allies. ... Our ties of history and heritage with Mexico are just as deep.
In equating our intimate historic bonds to our mother country and to Canada with our ties to Mexico, W. shows a staggering ignorance of the civilizational facts of life. The reason we are so close to Britain and Canada is that we share with them a common historical culture, language, literature, and legal system, as well as similar standards of behavior, expectations of public officials, and so on.

We share none of those things with Mexico, which, along with the rest of Latin America, constitutes a cultural region quite distinct from that of the United States and Europe. Everyone, on both the left and the right, has always known this to be so. W., apparently, does not. As he sees it, our mere physical proximity to Mexico is tantamount to cultural commonality with Mexico.

W.'s delusions of cultural similarity don't stop there. "Differences are inevitable" between Mexico and the U.S.," W. continued. "But they will be differences among family, not between rivals."

Coming from the Republican candidate for president of the United States, the statement boggles the mind. It was bad enough when the Democrats in the 1980s started their socialist rant (soon echoed by the Republicans) that Americans are all "one family." But now George W., "The Man from Inclusion," has taken the "family" idea several steps further. For W., it is not just the United States, but the United States and Mexico, and ultimately the United States and the whole of the Americas, that constitutes one "family."

With this thoughtless cliché, W. is moving in symbolic terms toward the goal that Mexico's newly elected president Vicente Fox is calling for in concrete terms: the opening of the U.S.-Mexican border. After all, who would want to maintain national borders and high-tech barriers between members of the same family? Within a family there is unconditional support, mutual obligation, and the sense of a shared destiny -- not armed patrols and checkpoints.

Whether or not W. himself understands the logical implications of his "family" rhetoric, its political consequence if he becomes president will be the same -- the further delegitimization of our borders and our national sovereignty.

All of which leads up to the question: Why is he doing this? Most conservatives had accepted, if without enthusiasm, the pragmatic need for W. and other Republicans to project a warm and "inclusive" image, conspicuously embracing minorities and so on. But by no reasonable calculation did that require W. to embrace multiculturalism, any more than the need to avoid "negative attacks" on his Democratic opponent required him to praise Reno's cover-up of Gore.

Since his adoption of a multicultural vision of America makes no sense in political terms (indeed, it would tend to alienate his own base), the only explanation is that W. really believes in it. Watching his speech in Miami, you couldn't help but feel that W. is genuinely moved by this "We're all one family" sentiment. It is as central to his heart (about which he is always telling us) as the love of big government is to Bob Dole's.

Ahmadenijad's DNA

I have been remiss in not reposting this here!

I noticed that Hyscience had linked to my scholarly debate of whether Ahmadinejad is a chimp or an ape.

On a related thread at Israellycool, someone named Woland pointed out this great picture that sheds light on this important topic:

They have no shame.

IslamOnline published an article entitled Muslims in Greater Europe. In and of itself it's a rather bland feel-good bit of half-taqeeya, though maybe a tad to triumphalistic about the near future. This snippet sent me high up in the curtains:
The charting of any vision for the future should take into consideration the reality on the ground. For example, for Spanish Muslims, who have gone a long way towards establishing their presence as an integral part of society and achieved tangible successes in various sectors including education, legislation, and culture, the March 11, 2004, terrorist attacks in Madrid could have undermined all that had been achieved by the Muslims, due to the misdirected political, security and media campaigns initiated in reaction to the event.
Ah, that's where we misunderstood eachother! Muslim credibility was not in the least diminished by those miscreants that blew themselves up in commuter trains in Madrid under the assumption they were the most devout among the worshippers of the Big Black Stone Idol. It was the political, security and media reactions, nay campaigns, nay misdirected campaigns (drumroll and brass fanfare, maestro, if you please) in the wake of those slaughters.

Oh and in response to this:
In the past, European Muslims were viewed as foreigners, alien to society. This, however, is no longer the case, as the vast majority of Muslims are either of European descent, descendents of immigrants, or are themselves immigrants who arrived a few decades ago. They are part and parcel of European society. If Muslims are peculiar by virtue of their religion, then this applies to all religious groups, including Catholics, Protestants, Zoroastrians, Buddhist and others.
Allow me to respond in the following, slightly irritated manner:
No, you cultural relativist nincompoop. If Muslims are peculiar by virtue of their religion, it is because their religion apparently instructs them to burn cars and embassies, to blow up trains and buses filled with ordinary people going about their ordinary businesses, to kill and threaten any and all that are the slightest bit crictical of said religion and the one calling himself the last prophet. Stop with the constant threatening, lying and degrading of anyone not muslim and you will find you will be considered a damn sight less peculiar and hell, maybe even friendly. The reason those others you mention are considered not nearly as peculiar as are Muslims is because those others are or have learned to adapt to the presence of other faiths and cultures.
Anyway, read the whole thing. It is a great example of how 'moderate' muslims actually don't differ that much from their less moderate, more bloodshed oriented co-religionists.

He Walks in Dark Places


"Achilles absent was Achilles still."

We go into our 20th meeting this evening in Vancouver, Canada, this evening at 7:00 pm at Vancouver Public Library to sit in the atrium and discuss our plans to defeat dhimmitude, jihad, and the fascist Left around the world. Where, we wonder, will you be?

Many have come a long way from the privacy of their daily lives and personal concerns to the point that today we spend much our own lives dealing with foreign concerns of religion and politics that we likely would not care to if life were to leave us to our own preferred pursuits. Islam? It bores me to tears. Fascism? I can't stand thinking about it. Socialism? I get frustrated and disgusted hearing the nonsense. Our privacy is invaded, and our publicity demands us to rise up to reclaim it. Our private lives are not our own anymore as they once were. We are drawn into war against our wishes, and now we sit on a far shore awaiting battle. We are actually waiting for you.

Where, Achilles, have you gone?

Ours, though we did not choose it, is a good fight. We are called to battle. Life itself calls us to battle. Our private lives are now part of the whole of our nations and our people. We are called upon.

"The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; those who live in a dark land, the light will shine on them. Thou shalt multiply the nation, Thou shalt increase their gladness; They will be glad in Thy presence as with the gladness of harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For Thou shalt break the yoke of their shoulders and the staff of their shoulders, the rod of their oppressor, as in the battle of Midian. For every boot of the booted warrior in the battle tumult, and the cloak rolled in blood, will be for burning, as fuel for the fire."

(Isaiah 9: 2-5).

We chatter in the darkness and squat down chewing our knuckles, waiting. We see the light as we sit in the caves of the mind, know it's shining for us, and we hold back. The hero lurks. He walks in dark places.

We have a great thing to do and we will pay a great price for victory. What a blessing we might have for the taking.

"At last is Hector stretch'd upon the plain,
Who fear'd no vengeance for Patroclus slain:
Then, Prince! You should have fear'd, what now you feel;
Achilles absent was Achilles still:
Yet a short space the great avenger stayed,
Then low in dust thy strength and glory laid."

Homer, The Iliad, Bk. 22.

Your absence disturbs us. We meet in public weekly, Thursday evenings, 7-9:00 pm in the library atrium. We assemble for battle. We await you. Call from your camps.

Go now. Go. Go do some great thing.

Israel develops SECOND active defense system

iron_fist1.jpg

Until recently, the development of Iron Fist was shrouded in secrecy, as it was developed in parallel to a different Israeli developed ADS system - RAFAEL's Trophy, which entered full scale development in 2005. However, due to rapid development pace and successful testing, IMI expects to deliver the first systems for IDF testing and qualifications by mid 2007. Unlike competing systems, IMI's Iron Fist can be installed on light vehicles, including trucks and even Humvees, offering effective protection from RPGs. IMI conducted extensive testing against a full spectrum of threats, engaging various types of threats from stationary and moving armored personnel carriers. The system already demonstrated effective protection of light vehicles and heavy armored vehicles, from small rocket propelled grenades, anti-tank missiles and tank rounds equipped with shaped charge warheads as well as advanced kinetic threats (armor piercing tank rounds).

And the horses you rode in on

Two truly fantastic stories .. scrotum tightening stupidity, perfidy, laziness, spoiled americans and shortsightedness

1 ) Maywood, CA maywoodpolicebadge.jpg.w180h181.jpg Maywood is 96% Latino. Its City Counsel has vowed to make it "a sanctuary city" for those who have illegally invaded our country.

Toward this end, it has eliminated the police department's traffic division, because too many illegals were getting into trouble for driving without licenses. There will be no more sobriety checkpoints or towing of illegally operated vehicles, so as not to inconvenience the aliens.

"No human being is illegal," Councilman Felipe Aguirre righteously proclaimed. He referred to the defense of the USA's territorial sovereignty as "this hypocritical policy."

Some salient facts about what illegal immigration represents in this case...NOT RACE.

In 1970, a majority of the Maywood population was White (assumption is that they did not get here illegally, but for the benefit of the 'critical progressives' we will consider the idea that they may some kind of mafioso, or DOW Chemical napalm engineer war criminals or such)
In 1980, the Hispanic population in Maywood was more than 80%. By 1980, nearly half (49.3 percent) were foreign-born
In 2000, Maywood was 97% Hispanic. More than 55% of its residents are foreign-born. No data is available on the % of illegals among the 55% foreign born in this town 16 miles from Pasadena

Criminals showed up and the citizens LEFT, because the law and order and therefore safety for families and kids was not enforceable because there was no civil will.

Now the police have been ordered not to enforce the law by what well may be the children of the criminals who entered illegally. I don't care if they are latino, chinese, jewish, mongolian, or born in Ouagoudougou.

The word for this process is called

ANARCHY


UPDATE:

Does La Raza Have It's Own LAUSD Charter School?

McIntyre in the Morning has begun an investigation into Academia Semillas del Pueblo, an LAUSD charter school. The website for the K-8 school says it is, "dedicated to providing urban children of immigrant native families an excellent education founded upon their own language, cultural values and global realities." The school's student body is 91.3% hispanic and 8.7% native / alaskan native. There is not a single white, black, or asian student.

The school receives support not only from the tax payer but also the National Council of La Raza and the Pasadena City College chapter of MeCHA (Movimemeniento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlan). In various interviews and actions the school's founder, principal and council trustee secretary, Marcos Aguilar, has shown contempt for racial integration. Like everyone else connected to the school, Aguilar has refused repeated attempts by McIntyre in the Morning for an interview, telling our reporter he only speaks with spanish speaking media and warning the reporter, "I would be very careful before I came down here."

Reporter Assaulted After Interview And Loses Tape

(CBS) LOS ANGELES A local radio reporter was assaulted Thursday while leaving a Los Angeles charter school that his station has said imparts separatist ethics, a station official said.

The reporter, Sandy Wells, was not hurt, according to station spokesman Steve Sheldon.

Wells was leaving the campus of Academia Semillas Del Pueblo, 4736 Huntington Drive, after interviewing the principal when a car came around the corner, jumped the curb and the driver tried to run him down, Sheldon said.

Wells managed to dodge the car, but the driver, a man who appeared to be in his mid-20s, got out and tackled him, taking away his tape recorder, he said.

The incident was reported to police, Sheldon said, adding that it is believed to be linked to the station's reporting on the school.

The Los Angeles Unified School District said it would issue a statement on the assault later in the day.

but wait there's more in Texas.....

Neo-Nazi Becomes Fanatical Muslim

As an earlier post by The Anti-Jihadist pointed out, the Quran and Mein Kampf have a lot in common. So much so that this former neo-Nazi [now Islamonazi] has converted to the "Religion O' Peace" whilst still being able to hold onto his old Nazi ideologies (article is a little old, but very relevant to recent topics) :

David Myatt, 51, was a self-styled "Satanic Fuhrer" who urged his neo-Nazis followers to fight a race war.

But Myatt has now swapped his worship of Adolf Hitler for al Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

His new name is Abdul Aziz ibn Myatt and he argues that Muslims and Aryans share the same common enemy in the Jewish nation and western capitalism.

Myatt's previous publications include 1997 fascist terrorist handbook 'The Practical Guide to Aryan Revolution', which inspired the Brixton nail-bomber David Copeland.

His more recent writings include 'The Crusader War Against Islam and The Zionist Quest for World Domination', and is a regular contributor to chatrooms where he expresses support for suicide missions and urging young Muslims to take up Jihad.

Myatt has even praised the World Trade Center attacks as an act of heroism.

Gerry Gable, from anti-fascist magazine Searchlight, said: "Myatt is an ethereal character who has used numerous aliases to post messages on extremist websites.

"He is a dangerous man who has twice been jailed for his violent right-wing activities and who openly asked for blood to be spilled in the quest for white Aryan domination.

"We believe that despite his claims to be a devout Muslim he remains a deeply intellectual subversive and is still one of the most hardline Nazi intellectuals in Britain today.

"Myatt believes in the disruption of existing societies as a prelude to the creation of a new more warrior-like Aryan society which he calls the Galactic Empire.

"Now he has has simply jumped on the Islamic extremist bandwagon to further his own wish of a society divided on ethnic lines.

"He believes they have common enemies but it is his disillusionment with the ineptitude of the Nazi movement that has led to this most unholy of alliances."

Myatt was a hardline Nazi since the 1960s and Searchlight allege he was even Grand Master of a secret occult sect called the Order of the Nine Angels, which was alleged to have practised human sacrifice.

It is believed that Myatt's sudden conversion to Islam three years ago may be just a political ploy to advance his own failing anti-establishment agenda.

The Sunday Mercury has discovered that Myatt uses several online identities to post both right-wing messages on neo-Nazi sites and to call for the creation of a global Islamic superstate on Islamic forums.

On one site, Aryan Nation, he attempts to reconcile the differences between both extremes under the title Islamic Liaison Group dating his messages with his trademark yf (Year of the Fuhrer). On another , supporting his diatribe with claims that more than 60,000 Muslims joined Hitler's SS in the Second World War.

He also continues to publish newsletters for his own German Nazi-modelled National Socialist Movement (NSM) which counted Copeland as a branch organiser and advocated terrorist insurrection to spark a race war.

On Islamic internet discussion sites he likens the American attacks on Afghanistan and Iraq to the Allied occupation of Hitler's Nazi Germany.

Michael Whine, Chairman of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, told the Mercury: "Myatt has a long history of involvement with Nazi activity and anti-semitism.

"The fact that he has converted to Islam and allied himself with its extremist fringe is in line with the opportunist politics that have seen him dabble in Buddhism and Chinese Taoism in the past. I would advise all Muslims to have nothing to do with this man."

But Sheikh Omar Bakri, leader of the extremist Al Muhajiroun organisation, said: "I am very keen to meet up with him as we both share a lot in common and I am sure he can help the Islamic cause."

A Brief History of Islamic Terror

Prof. Lewis has a selected chronology of Arab/Islamic terrorist attacks. This “abbreviated list” is an overwhelming statement illustrating the duration, range, and commitment to war with the West. And it underscores how long we’ve buried our heads in the sand.

Jihad at YouTube

The following is a message plus the response I received yesterday from a fellow YouTube user, Crusader18:

"Yes My Dear Pimsghost,
The have pulled 3 of my videos down in 24 hours. YT it seems is run by either Muslims or Dhimmis(Liberals) and the censorsghip is happening. I have attached the Video that I want flagged as innappropriate. "koferi" Put up by 'Jihad4u' as hateful a deathmonger as there is on youtube. Youtube pulls down my Vids as fast as I put them up. They Ignor the Flaggings that I do on Jihadist Propaganda videos and any attempts to have my grievences heard. They have pulled vids that were harmless; 60yr old Bugs Bunny Cartoon, Southpark Mohammad(even though there was no picture or cartoon of Mohad)
They(the handchoppers and YT decide what I and we can post or not. Right now I have a more than a dozen that say...: Rejected (content inappropriate) That were viewed (in some cases) THOUSANDS OF TIMES! Yet this one I posted at the same time as the 2 latest taken down
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TfP3MK0y-aw
REMAINS! The most amazing thing about this is...Many of my "rejects" are up on YT already by other Users!!! Same name, same file same discriptions same tags...(I copyed them to test a theory) POOF! There's stay, and mine get yanked or denied outright...The same clips. They can, will, and do F**K with people who they don't agree with. If you have an email address to share, I will send you Clips you can either Post or view.(I would post them to test) I am also sending this additional call to arms that follows...(Please Send the following, and resend it. The video doesn't even have a "confirm" screen yet.)
Kind Regards
Crusader18

Subject:

We do this until one by one they are denied access to post this stuff. It's called Interdiction...DO THIS!!! Together, WE can DO THIS. We can as free users of OUR INTERNET, INTERDICT this ONE SITE and DENY ACCESS To the ISLAMISTS...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PASS THIS ON AND ON AND ON>>>>>>>>>>>
This is your Clarion Call To Do What You CAN DO TO FIGHT THEM.
Thank you ALL,
Crusader(CRUSADER18)
BTW- I wish to read replies to this request from people I've never even heard of before. We start with one. When it's GONE, we go on to the next. But first, we start with the one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oyymEhCSqQE"

I must add that some Brit has flagged all of my videos and is prepared to fight us "racists", despite the amount of videos devoted to Islam and the Palestinian cause, one which is UNFLAGGED and shows a military vehicle and personel being hit by a bomb, where you clearly see the soldiers blown to bits. I found it by chance, following the trail of muslim radical users and flagging their videos, or trying to. All subject to YouTube approval, of course. My simple VLOGs have apparently been flagged as inappropriate. Between the Dhimwits and the Jihadis, there is a war to get all anti-jihadi videos (and users) kicked off the site, while the videos of Israeli and American troops being blown up remain, as well as video homages to Palestinians which include supposedly "inappropriate" material. Like I say, me discussing Dhimmitude has been flagged. Soldiers being blown up? Unflagged. Very rotten and biased happenings at what is one of the main video hosting sites online.

So, before it gets yanked, and in the spirit of the "Question of the Day" of how to destroy an ideology along with my Ali Sina idea, I'm posting the funniest "humiliate the jihadis" video on YouTube. This is SystemF's incredibly hilarious "Samira RIP", about his "brave mujahadin" camel Samira and her untimely death. This just cracks me up.

The Koran Versus Mein Kampf

A recent comment thread over at Pedestrian Infidel compared Herr Hitler's Manifesto from over 80 years ago, "Mein Kampf", to that "holy of holies" to Muslims, the Koran. Commenters have noted the remarkable similarities between the two, and indeed, the resemblances are more than skin deep and are worth examining in more detail. A closer look at the facts reveals that Islam (not 'Islamism') and Nazism are two kindred ideologies with many, many commonalities.

Let's start with titles. The very title of Herr Hitler's tome means "My Struggle" in English. One could even entitle this book "My Jihad" and this Islamic term would have the same precise meaning. "Kampf" in a Nazi ideological context and "Jihad" in the Islamic one are almost identical. That in itself goes a long way to explaining why 'Mein Kampf' is still such a best seller in current times all over the Islamic World, including in supposedly 'moderate' Islamic states like Turkey.

But the similiarities between the Koran and Mein Kampf don't just stop there. Far from it. Fellow blogger and ally Freedom Fighter over at his/her blog Joshua Pundit has come up with an exceptional, enlightning list of how alike Islam and Nazism really are:

Mein Kampf- States that Germans are the superior race of mankind and that Germany is destined to rule the world , and dominate all other races and nations.

The Q'uran-States that Islam and Muslims are the superiors of mankind and that Islam is divinely mandated to rule the world and dominate all other races, creeds and nations.

...

Mein Kampf-Says that the German State is to have control over every aspect of life. Says all individuals must submit to the State.

The Q'uran-Says that Islam and Sharia is to have control over every aspect of life. Says all individuals must submit to Islam.

...

Mein Kampf-Says that Germans have the duty to claim their divinely appointed place in the world by whatever means necessary. Puts loyalty to the Volk (the race) above all other ethical considerations.

The Q'uran-Says that Muslims have a duty to wage Jihad and to advance Islam's domination over the world (Dar al Islam and Dar al Harb) by any means necessary. Places loyalty to fellow Muslims (Umma) and Islam above all other ethical considerations.

...

Mein Kampf-Mandates that men are superior to women and that women's place should be limited to procreation, the kitchen and the home.

The Q'uran-Mandates that men are superior to women and that women's place should be limited to procreation, the kitchen and the home. (Admittedly, the Q'uran goes quite a bit farther than Mein Kampf on this topic)

...

Mein Kampf-Says that homosexuals are 'race traitors' and should be condemned to death. (Many, in fact were murdered in the concentration camps).

The Q'uran-Says homosexuals are unholy to Allah and should be condemned to death

...

Mein Kampf-Sets out a detailed model for world conquest, including rules for how conquered peoples are to be suppressed and dominated by the German race. States that the wealth, resources and property of subject peoples belongs to Germans by right and the right to life for subject peoples is dependent on Germans. States that
non-Germans have no legal or civil rights.

The Q'uran-Sets out a detailed model for world conquest, including rules for how conquered peoples are to be suppressed and dominated by Muslims. States that the wealth, resources and property of subject peoples belongs to Muslims by right and the right to life for subject peoples is dependent on Muslims. States that non-Muslims have no legal or civil rights. (in truth, a lot of this has its basis in the Hadith and the Sunna, but both derive essentially from what's in the Q'uran, along with all the other aspects of Sharia).

...

Mein Kampf-Divides the world into 'German land' and enemy territory. States that land with Germans living in it or land that once had Germans ruling it rightfully belongs to Germany, and Germany is entitled to get it back by any means necessary.

The Q'uran-Divides the world into 'Dar al Islam' (Muslim ruled land) and enemy territory (Dar al Harb). States that land with Muslims living in it or land that once had Muslims ruling it rightfully belongs to Dar al Islam, and Muslims are entitled to get it back by any means necessary.

...

Mein Kampf-Blames the Jews for society's ills and says that they will be exterminated.

The Q'uran-Blames the Jews for society's ills and says that they will be exterminated. ("On the day of Judgement the rocks and trees will call out 'O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me! Come and slay him!")

Islam and Nazism. Mohammed and Hitler. As plain as day, they are cut from the same cloth.

Do The Jihadis Consider Denmark Islamic Territory?

Bernard Lewis gave a talk the other day on the troubles the Western world is having with Islam. Here, he proposes a very good question with regards to the anger in the Muslim world over the Jyllands-Posten cartoons:


What was much more at issue was another ban, and that is on insulting the Prophet, which is, of course, an offense. This raises a number of interesting questions that I think are of direct relevance to the whole issue at the present time.

Insulting the Prophet is an offense in Muslim law. This raises two issues: one of substantive law, the other of jurisdiction. Muslim jurists discuss this at some length, and there is a considerable body of case law concerning it in Muslim states.

The first point of disagreement: What is the range of jurisdiction of Muslim law? And here you have two opinions. According to the Shi'a and a minority among the Sunnis, Muslim law applies to Muslims wherever they may be in the world. A Muslim who commits an offense against Muslim law, wherever he may be in the world, is subject to Muslim law and must therefore be punished in accordance with Muslim law.

The majority Sunni view is that Muslim law only applies in countries under Muslim government. What happens outside is no concern of the Muslim authorities. One distinguished jurist makes his point with an extreme example: A Muslim traveling in the lands of the unbelievers commits robbery and murder. He returns to the lands of Islam with his loot. No action can be taken against him or against his loot because the offense was committed outside the jurisdiction of Islam, and it is therefore up to the juridical and legal authorities of the infidels to take action, if they can and will.

Here you have two different opinions relating to an offense committed by a Muslim. That is not the case for the Danish cartoons. This is an offense committed by a non-Muslim. And here the plot thickens. This is discussed by all of the juridical authorities only in the case of a non-Muslim subject of a Muslim state. If a non-Muslim subject of a Muslim state says or does something offensive to the Prophet, he is to be tried — accused, tried, and if necessary, punished. The jurists on the whole tend to take a rather mild view of this offense. They say, well, he is not a Muslim; he doesn't accept Mohammed as the Prophet; we know that.

So saying that Mohammed is no prophet does not constitute this offense. It has to be more specifically insulting than that. And, as I say, there is an elaborate juridical literature and case law on this subject.What is never discussed at all — it is never considered — is an offense committed by a non-Muslim in a non-Muslim country. That, according to the unanimous opinion of all of the doctors of the holy law is no concern of Islamic law, which brings us back to the case of Denmark.

Does this mean that Denmark, along with the rest of Europe is now considered part of the Islamic lands, and that the Danes, like the rest, are therefore dhimmis, non-Muslim subjects of the Muslim state?


It would seem the Jihadis think so.
