Has called for a boycott of Norway and Denmark

The Muslim brotherhood has called for a boycott of Norway and Denmark over the recent viewing of the Mohammad cartoons.

The boycott is a result of Norwegian TV station, TV2, showing the cartoons during a documentary on Tuesday, and Danish youth politicians mocking the prophet Mohammad at a recent party conference. The muslim brotherhood is the largest opposition party in Egypt. It has branches and millions of sympathizers all over the Arab world.

- The muslim brotherhood denounces the reoccurrence of islam hostile activities in the west. We encourage all muslims to defend their religion in this holy month of ramadan, and to boycott products from Norway, Denmark and other nations that have insulted muslims and the prophet Mohammad.

- We will arrange a peaceful demonstration, not only against Norway, but against the entire west and all those who insult Islam, says Mohammad Mahdi Akkef to Nettavisen. Akkef is the general secretary of the Muslim brotherhood in Egypt.

- The majority in Norway and Denmark are atheists, but it is important that they respect all religions and that they do not support George Bush, a man who wants to cause conflicts between muslims and the west.

Major newspapers in Turkey such as Hurreiyet and Milliyet showed pictures from the Danish video on Saturday, and this has caused strong reactions in that country.

“Race” Over

Title for a Jihad Watch post from October 6, 2006: “UK: violent Muslim/non-Muslim clashes”. Thereafter, Robert Spencer follows up with his usual exasperated commentary, shared by all of us who have eyes to see the truth:

Or in the deceptive and misleading racial euphemisms employed by the British press, violent clashes between “whites” and “Asians.” But they don’t mean Norwegians are fighting Hindus from India. “Race clashes hit Windsor,” from the Evening Standard […]


An excerpt from the news item:

Extra police are being drafted into the Windsor area today after three nights of violent clashes between white and Asian youths.


To call anti-Islamic sentiments “racism”, despite Islam being a religion, and a supra-racial one at that—as the Muslims never cease stating, to contrast with the basically racist non-Muslim West—is no longer surprising: as I said in my post They Know What Works, from August 21, it was only natural that Muslims appropriate yet another Western precept, in this case aversion to racism, and retool it as yet another weapon in the jihad. But what about the Western media? Why do our media outlets studiously avoid the M-word, opting instead to pull out the race card every time? Dhimmitude, or fear of Islamic reprisals, is again an abbreviated and partial answer. The following will be my attempt to plumb the depths of the irrationality of continuing to think in terms of racial conflict in our day and age.

Danish Water Supply Poisoned With Strychnine

From Jyllands-Posten:


On Tuesday afternoon, a control inspection revealed that Greve Municipality's water source had been contaminated by strychnine Remains of strychnine found in the pumps of a Greve water reservoir could have meant a grand scale catastrophe, had a control check Tuesday not discovered the poison.

One or more unknown persons dumped rat poison into the reservoir at Greve Waterworks by shattering a Plexiglas cover on one of the well's openings. Nearly 35,000 citizens are supplied drinking water from the source.

'The episode worries me, because you think, what'll it be next?' said Greve Waterworks' Erik Jurlander to daily newspaper Politiken.

Jurlander said that the facility is as secure as it can feasibly be.

'We have coded locks for the waterworks, a sea of alarms and 24-hour security guards who are immediately notified if one of the alarms sounds.'

Police have not yet confirmed any suspects, though they do have an important clue in the form of a small chemist's vial marked 'rat poison' found at the bottom of the well. Police said they know from which pharmacy the vial comes, but are gathering more information.

Greve Waterworks personnel said that the amount of poison found in the water was not significant enough to have caused problems. The reservoir has been closed, however, and the municipality is currently being supplied by water from Copenhagen.

New Yorker Festival Town Hall: Islam and The West

Last night was a tough one folks.The New Yorker "Festival" held their Town Hall Meeting on Islam and the West (wrong, right off the bat, it should have been the Islam vs the West.)

This of course was the enlightened left's attempt at dialogue, with almost all West bashing Muslims ("these people were not chosen for who they are but for their ideas" ahhhhhh yes)

The New Yorker Town Hall Meeting on Islam and the West
On the panel were Omar Ahmad-chairman of the board of the Council on American-Islamic (CAIR) Ayaan Hirsi Ali author The Caged Virgin: An Emancipation Proclamation for Women and Islam, Mahmood Mamdani,author Good Muslim, Bad Muslim, Azar Nafisi ( deranged,btw)- author Reading Lolita in Teheran, Abdullahi Ahmed An-Na’im (from Sudan) is a Charles Howard Candler Professor of Law ,and Lawrence Wright author of the masterpiece The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11.and New Yorker staff writer George Packer moderated.

They opened with the importance of separating Islam and Muslims. This is the issue. uh, yeah ok.
Then spent 15 minutes attacking the name of the event "Islam and the West."

Let me say, this was pathetic.............. with the exception of Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Lawrence Wright, it was a propaganda tool for the Jihad and an Islamic fest of America bashing, colonialism bashing and lest we not forget IMPERIALISM bashing. ugh.

One had to suspend their disbelief to listen to Azar Nafisi speak about the women demonstrating in Iran for women's rights but neglecting to mention that they got their ass kicked for it. What passes for experts in these days of the gathering storm is frightening.

And of course it wouldn't be Islamic if they didn't blame the jooooooooos. Which they did. And of course CAIR said all would be resolved if the poor Palestinians were free.

During the Q&A, muslim women would ask Hirsi Ali insulting questions dripping with contempt, accusing Hirsi Ali of contributing to the bigotry. There is something so stoic and free about Hirsi Ali that Muslim women want to rip her eyes out.

These were the most interesting moments. Hirsi Ali spoke up against the lies along with Wright. And, I might add, they were given the least amount of time. CAIR, of course, spoke at great length but not nearly as long as Abdullahi railing against US intervention in Darfur. It's a job for the African Union, conveniently omitting that this genocide, all these rapes and murders took place with the AU troops on the scene. "They need more money!"

New_yorker_islam_and_west_003

I hate to devote too much ink to this self serving, self loathing, exercise in aiding and abetting CAIR and Islamists but we need to know the discourse and how Islam is being fed to a gullible, curious public.

The New Yorker ought to be ashamed of itself. I was once an avid reader of that book, looked forward to every issue. But the break for me came when Susan Sontag wrote the most disgusting America hating piece right after 9/11, that was it. I never looked at it again and last night validated every opinion I had.

Listening to erudite, well spoken Muslims shake their finger at intervention in Darfur and deny the genocide is Islamic in nature - is beyond cvil discourse. It's accessory to murder. Simon Deng, ex slave from Sudan, here

I loaded the audio but will warn you, it's a waste of time. This attempt at "dialogue" speaks to what Nidra and I discussed here, the different approaches Islam takes to infiltrate and dominate each country. Of course, living in France, Nidra knows well the violent Punk Jihad that is holding the French hostage. In Brussels, Denmark, England, it is a peculiar thuggery - a brutal random violence- while using freedom of speech to silence freedom of speech.

Here in America, the Muslim Brotherhood project approaches the takeover from within America's institutions, social organizations, media, government organizations, academia, CAIR, MPAC are constantly depicting Muslims as victims. Victims of bigotry, victims of a terrorist stereotype, fabricating "hate crimes" - "hey, we're just regular guys." Hardly.

Part 2 is the Q&A, more interesting, but the audio is poor. Sorry.
Download newyorker_islam_west2.wav
Download newyorker_islam_west_1.wav

The most telling moment of the night was when one of the audience members asked why the Muslim street was silent on the genocide in the Arab counry of Sudan. Dead silence. Long. Dead. silence. And then some bullshit comeback about it not being an Islamic problem ...............

The New Yorker got it so wrong. And it was a pity because it attracted a full house of white, erudite, information seekers (although clearly by the applause many came with their own agenda.) Another wasted opportunity.

Please, no "M-word" here...

Windsor in UK has been the centre of some small-scale (relatively speaking) rioting centred around a “Muslim-run dairy which has become an unofficial prayer centre for workers”. Nothing wrong with that you would think – but there is obviously more to it than has been reported..

But the strange thing is the extreme reluctance of reporters and newspapers to print the “M-word”.

London Lite (Daily Mail’s publication) e.g. reported (5th Oct ’06) that, “extra police are being drafted into the Windsor area today after three nights of violent clashes between white and Asian youths”…

Who are these “Asian youths” – could they be Chinese, Japanese or from South East Asia, Mongolians?

Not clear…the report goes on to that “Windows of the makeshift mosque and dairy vehicles were smashed. Residents said that Asian youths came from Slough to fight the white gang”.

“Dairy manager Sikander Khan, 50, said his predominantly Asian workers were worried after the fire-bomb attack” OK, I may be dumb but Khan does not sound like a Chinese or a Japanese name to me.

The report continues: “…residents feared a mosque would make things worse…”
Get the point? Could this be linked to British Hindus’ yearning for a separate identity rather than simply being lumped as “Asians”? and what about Indians – are we “Asian”? – the last time I studied geography we were…but somehow I find it hard to believe that any of us (Indians) were involved in these incidents…

can the media gather the courage to stand up and speak the truth clearly and fearlessly?

Gang O' Youths Hound Out Soldiers

Religous riots in Windsor, firebombed dairies, veil outrage and soldiers hounded out of their homes by gangs of, ahem, "youths". Just another day in paradise :


MUSLIM yobs who wrecked a house to stop four brave soldiers moving in after returning from Afghanistan sparked outrage last night.

The house in a village near riot-torn Windsor had BRICKS thrown through windows and was DAUBED with messages of hate.

Four young Household Cavalry officers who had planned to rent it were also the target of phone THREATS.

They were yesterday forced to look elsewhere to live — after top brass warned them against inflaming racial violence near the Queen’s Windsor Castle home.

Last night furious Shadow immigration minister Damian Green said: “This is a shocking development.”

Colleagues of the officers branded the vandalism a “disgrace”. A source at the regiment said: “These guys have done nothing but bravely serve their country — yet they can’t even live where they want in their own country.” The £3,000-a-month detached home in picturesque Datchet, Berks, is less than a mile from Windsor Castle. It was attacked as extra police were drafted into Windsor — where battles have raged for days between Asian and white gangs.

On Wednesday a Muslim-run dairy was firebombed.

The young officers — from the same regiment as Prince Harry — had planned to use the four-bed house for rest and recuperation after months risking their lives on the frontline.

Louts struck two days after the four arrived in uniform in an Army Land Rover to view it.

The source said: “A gang of local Muslims set about keeping them away. They hurled bricks through the windows and then wrote offensive graffiti across the front of the house.” The vile messages included one in 4ft letters on the drive — warning: “F*** off”.

Sources inside Windsor’s Combermere Barracks — where the officers are based — confirmed Muslims had made calls threatening the men.

The scandal comes as Tony Blair today pledges the Army in Afghanistan can have ANYTHING it needs to hammer the Taliban. Writing exclusively in The Sun he declares that Our Boys are “the best in the world”.

A Household Cavalry insider said of the Muslims’ insult to Britain’s heroes: “Everyone in the regiment is really upset. It’s one thing coming under attack in Helmand in Afghanistan but quite another getting this abuse in England. The officers were determined to face down the yobs and still move in — but didn’t want a race riot on their hands.”

Police hunting the vandals confirmed: “One line of inquiry is that it is racially aggravated.”

The house’s owner Johanna Ledwidge refused to comment beyond saying she was very upset. A shocked neighbour in the quiet street said: “We pride ourselves in this neighbourhood that we welcome all cultures.”

Tory MP Philip Davies said of the attack: “This is outrageous.

“If there’s anybody who should f*** off it’s the Muslims who are doing this kind of thing. Police should pull out the stops to track down these vile thugs.”

Sir Andrew Green, director of the think-tank Migrationwatch UK, said: “Incidents like this are absolutely inexcusable and seriously undermine efforts by all sides to achieve integration. Those who choose to live in this country owe a loyalty to Britain.”

A spokesman for letting agency Kings, who are marketing the property, said: “It was an isolated case of vandalism. We do not know the reasons behind it.”

The Gathering Storm is Looking for Radio Show Guests

The Gathering Storm is now has a live weekly Internet radio show on Wide Awakes Radio every Friday from noon to 2PM PST.

I’m looking for guests from the IBA on my show. If you have a blog, webs site, book or position to promote around the Gathering Storm and would like to talk about it on my show, drop me a line at gsradio@mail.com

The show is about the Gathering Storm - the prelude to the real war, not the war itself. The show will not concern itself with the ongoing ideological debates on whether Islam is this or that, what was practiced then now or any other times, or what interpretation of the Islam and their motives is correct or not. Let those chips fall where they may. That debate will cease when the war arrives - succinct, clear and with a focused objective - as it did for Europe on September 1st, 1939 and America on December 7th, 1941.

What's important now is to expose the events of recent history and how they are contributing the Gathering Storm of the coming war and perhaps, just perhaps, by understanding them, we may be able to temper, though not prevent, the final struggle when it comes.

Drop me a line if interested.

When Muslims Move In - Systematic Colonization Of Neighborhoods In Britain


An Anonymous commenter left us some links about how the current warfare (between Muslims and non-Muslims) in Windsor is the result of the negative effects of having Muslims move into one's neighborhood:


Integration of British Muslims has been increasingly hindered by the rise of ghettos. New research shows the population of these mostly inner city communities has been rising very fast -- by one-third over the past decade. These findings have reopened the debate on how to solve this problem, which also breeds extremism. And solutions are not going to be easily found, according to the experts.

London, 8 September 2005 (RFE/RL) -- Asian Muslim ghettos in Britain have kept growing fast over the past 10 years, hindering integration and raising fears that dissatisfied Muslim youngsters may become easy prey for extremist groupings.

Magnus Ranstorp is the director of the Centre for the Study of Terrorism and Political Violence at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland.

“I think that home-grown terrorism is certainly being accelerated by the growing ‘ghettoification.’ Not just in Britain, but across Europe. And it’s very easy for the recruiters and for those who are manipulating the individuals to taking that final step. To find the willing recruits who are socially excluded and then marginalized in the society,” Ranstorp said.

This “ghettoisation” has been most visible in eight major cities. Leicester, Birmingham, and Bradford top the scale, followed by London, and others. And the integration or assimilation process in the ghettos is so slow, according to the report released by the Royal Geographical Society, that in many cases it will never happen.

Ali Noorizade heads the Arab-Iranian Studies Centre in London. He says the problem has been that the ghettos are a voluntary creation by mostly Pakistani and Bangladeshi Muslim immigrants, not something the society has forced upon them. And he adds that they rarely need to venture outside.

“They deal with themselves. Some of them never learn English. They have a Pakistani doctor, they have Pakistani lawyers, and therefore, you know, it became part of their culture to live within their ghetto. And they don’t show any intention to integrate with the society,” Noorizade said.

“The women are totally isolated. Majority of them are brought to England to bring children. They are coming from a remote village, and suddenly they find themselves in a society they know nothing about. And then their husbands force them to stay indoors and not to participate in any kind of activities,” Noorizade says.


Here's another link:


A controversial BBC report on Hindus being driven out of the northern English city of Bradford by young Muslims in an act the Vishwa Hindu Parishad provocatively describes as "ethnic cleansing", has evoked sharp reactions all around.

Meanwhile, Britain's mainstream election campaign continues to steer away from the Asian debate over the religious divide, in a reminder of the chasm between race relations and the political centreground.

There seems no middle ground as Hindus and Muslims trade charges. Bradford's Muslims deny they are chasing the Hindus away, while sections of the Hindu community acknowledge the exodus was originally a matter of choice.

"We are almost like white people," Jiniah Parthasarthy of the VHP told The Times of India. "We have small families, the woman works. But not Muslims. So, we are all leaving those crowded Asian ghettos. Over the years it was our own free will. Now, some Muslims are harassing us".

Parthasarthy, a former finance ministry employee in Delhi, has worked in Bradford for nearly 40 years. He believes the Hindus initially left the city to escape the dirt and over-crowding, but now they want to escape the "Talibanisation of Bradford, the Khalifa movement, more than 50 mosques, 100 madrassas".

He blames the air of menace on the radicalisation of young Muslims by firebrand leaders such as Sheikh Omer Bakri, whose Al Muhajiroun movement boasts that it trains potential jihadis bound for Kashmir and Chechnya. Many believe that Bakri's quarterly excursions from London down to Bradford stir up trouble of the sort discouraged by the largely Pakistani organisation that runs Bradford's mosques.

Even as police reject the VHP's charge of "systematic ethnic cleansing of Hindus", there is some incredulity among sociologists and political analysts about the use of highly charged words, which provoke knee-jerk responses from a Europe that has been fighting Balkan ethnic cleansing for a decade.

"Ethnic cleansing is a push-button word," according to a peace studies expert at Bradford University. "It doesn't exist in a developed western European country. Thank God for that".


If you ever want to understand a conflict, consult a "peace studies expert", eh? Actually, the dudes title ought to be Professional Pussy, or Pussifist.

The electorate mess, con, neo, lib, progressive, religious right, nutroot, fur ball

In 1994 a Contract with America swept out a long term democratic dominance in Congress?

Conventional wisdom? Was it the James Dobsons, Pat Robertson, Falwellian revolution? The nutroot critical progressives claim that the 'christianists' have hijacked the government and have warped a religious right fascism out the whole project.

The religious right claim the nutroots are the godless traitors and secular abortionists.

Add to this the Foley debacle where a semi pedophile and at least sexual predator with no self control caused more repub stupidity and incompetence in leadership to be exposed, AND the continuing almost permament mistrust of americans with the democratic party over national security, and the first tuesday in November becomes anything can happen day.

But what is the electorate?
How did the great turnabout from FDR-HST-KENNEDY to REAGAN-BUSH-BUSH occur and why?

Terrorist / Weapon roundup = Sophisticated Weapons

1: Hizbullah's use of C-802 cruise missile sets precedent for terror groups

2: Al Qaida using Iraq as proving ground for recruits, explosives

3: Hizbullah stockpiling rockets in Lebanon's refugee camps

4: Israeli military charges Egypt secretly backing huge arms smuggling network

Hizbullah's use of C-802 cruise missile sets precedent for terror groups
The U.S. military has deemed Hizbullah a major threat in the Middle East after the Central Command studied Hizbullah's military capabilities following its 34-day war against Israel, which ended on Aug. 14.

"I believe this is the first time we've seen a terrorist group use this kind of capability." Gulf Times
Officials said the most worrisome aspect of Hizbullah was its use of advanced Iranian weaponry. They included the attack on an Israel navy corvette on July 14 with a Chinese-origin C-802 cruise missile. Hizbullah fired C-802s on at least three occasions, and in one case missed an Israeli corvette but struck and sank a Cambodian-flagged merchant ship.

saar_mboat.jpg

Central Command believes that Iran would use Hizbullah in any confrontation with the United States. Officials envision Iran supplying Hizbullah with the most advanced tactical weapons, which could include nonconventional warheads. The C-802 is regarded as one of the most effective missiles in the world.

"It should not be lost on us, for example, that Hizbullah fields greater and longer-range weapons than most regional armed forces," Central Command chief Gen. John Abizaid told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Aug. 3. "If left unchecked, it is possible to imagine chemical, biological or even nuclear weapons being transferred to militias or terrorist organizations by a state actor."

Officials said Hizbullah's capabilities meant U.S. Navy ships could never patrol the eastern Mediterranean without armed escort or heightened security. The C-802 anti-ship cruise missile, with a range of about 120 kilometers and an explosive payload of up to 165 kilograms, requires a shore-based radar for over-the-horizon targeting.

Iraq - Shi'ite power struggle, Death Squads

Gertz...

As part of what has been regarded a Shi'ite power struggle, an Iranian-sponsored insurgent has been leading death squads in nightly orgies of torture and killing throughout Baghdad. The effort by Abu Dera has been so brutal that even the most hardened of Shi'ite militia leaders have ordered him to stop.

moqtadr.jpg
But Abu Dera hasn't, and he is believed to be largely responsible for the death of thousands of Sunnis every month in the Baghdad area. The method is the same: abduction, torture and a bullet to the head. Baghdad's morgues are overflowing with corpses.

"Abu Dera is the new Shi'ite hero," a U.S. official said. "He fights blood with more blood."

Abu Dera has been based in the Shi'ite stronghold of Sadr City in Baghdad. Sadr City is not a neighborhood. It contains 2 million residents is the leading source of fire against U.S. troops in the Baghdad area. Not long ago, Abu Dera was a member of the Al Mahdi Army, the Iranian-sponsored militia headed by Moqtada Sadr. But Sadr has gone mainstream and his followers are ministers in the government of Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki.

What's wrong with this picture? Sadr is the moderate alternative to some new more radical killer? Has the baseline shifted so far that someone who should have been dead immediately after Khoei was murdered is now HELPING? Anyone think he has seen the light? What are we doing? Has mission creep among a radicalized nation in an incipient civil war warped the entire thing?

OK, So the Gangs are Already Clashing in London....


Oddly, I keep posting that (in fact I just did in the post about attacks on Parisian Garbage Collectors) it is simply inevitable that sooner or later gangs of fed up Europeans are going to start fighting back with the Muslim rioters. You know, the "youths". Well, it appears that in London this is already taking place according to a link and story I just found at LGF:

Race Clashes Hit Windsor

"Extra police are being drafted into the Windsor area today after three nights of violent clashes between white and Asian youths.
Gangs have fought battles in the streets using baseball bats and pitchforks. A Muslim-run dairy which wants to build a mosque was petrol bombed.
Dozens of officers have been deployed to stop and search youths and mounted police are being brought in.

"Tensions have been growing between residents and the owners of the dairy, who have applied to convert an office building into a mosque for their workers.
Despite a lack of planning permission to use Technor House as a place of worship, workers and visitors have been praying there.
Violence flared for the first time on Monday outside the building in Vale Road in the Dedworth area of Windsor."


Hmmm....
So the native populations are fed up with this behavior in France, Amsterdam (where there has also been violence recently), Brussels, and now in Britain "white youths" are now fighting back. Using baseball bats and pitchforks, no less. Now that's hardly the portest/counter-protest while police do nothing attitude we've seen in the past. Am I correct in noting a sea-change at hand? Is the new counter-insurgency finally at hand? If so, it's about time.

My History Class

Yesterday, I showed the movie Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against The West to my high-school World History class. Two parents and a student not in the World History class attended as well. All attendees were riveted to the screen. Talk about focused!

When the movie ended, all sat there in stunned silence.

In some ways, Islam: What The West Needs To Know, which shows some of the same documentary footage, is a better film [Read my review HERE], particularly for those wanting to examine the doctrines of Islam. But that movie was too long for my one-hour class. I'll offer it to my students as fulfillment of their required annual project. Some may opt for it.

Both films are available for purchase on DVD. Go to the movie-title links above.

6024 Islamic terror attacks since 9-11-01

No doubt you have seen the buttons at many blogs pointing to the Religion of Peace site and its running tally of Islamic terror attacks. But, if you're like me, you've always wondered what is really represented by this figure and how much of it is a count of the almost daily (and arguably often more tribally- than Islamically-motivated bombings in Iraq and Afghanistan). Well, a new blogger in his first post is providing some insightful analysis of the RoP figure. And just six months ago, this guy was believing what the BBC and the Guardian were feeding him!

Hamas: No compromises, no recognizing of Israel

Looks like we're in for some more fun in the Palipigland. Hopefully, for quite a bit of fun.

(AP) Hamas will not be edged out of power, accept compromise or recognize Israel, Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh told tens of thousands of banner-waving supporters at a rally Friday.

Haniyeh's fiery performance was interrupted when he fainted onstage, seemingly overcome by the combined effects of heat and two weeks of dawn-to-dusk fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. He resumed his speech after a few minutes.

The Hamas leader ruled out a proposal by members of his own Hamas movement to form a new government of technocrats as a way of winning international support and ending a seven-month aid freeze.

"There are new scenarios, such as an emergency government, a technocrat government, or early elections," Haniyeh told the crowd in a packed soccer stadium. "They all aim at one thing, getting Hamas out of the government."

Wonderful. I had so much fun making the "Creating a Unity Government in Palestine" video, that I can't wait to get to working on a sequel.

Moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who was elected separately, has the authority to dissolve the Hamas Cabinet and replace it with an emergency government, or could call early elections. However, Abbas aides say he's not considering either option at the moment, fearing such moves would not have popular support. An emergency government would also require approval of the parliament, which is controlled by Hamas.

Haniyeh said Hamas remains willing to invite other parties into a coalition, but that it would not soften its positions. In addition to recognizing Israel, the international community demands that Hamas renounce violence and accept existing peace agreements.

"We say we will be in every government, we will stay in the government," he said. "We will not recognize Israel."

He accused the international community of trying to impose its will on the Palestinians. "They want a government with American and Israeli dimensions that implements external dictates, the so-called Quartet demands," he said, referring to the group of Mideast peacemakers - the U.S., the U.N., the European Union and Russia.

Actually, I am for Hamas remaining in power. This way, the Filthy Parasites™ will have their long overdue civil war.

Haniyeh said his best offer to Israel was a temporary truce in return for establishment of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, with its capital in Jerusalem, over which Israel claims complete sovereignty. He also repeated demands for the release of thousands of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons.

Right... like this is going to happen. I mean, how dumb can one be to openly claim that he will not recognize a country and that he is willing to offer only a temporary truce, and then expect concessions in return? Who other than a Muslim can be that dumb?

The Problem With Stoning Women

Ali Eteraz writes a long post about the stoning of women in Iran. He's against the wretched punishment.

One would think that Muslims in the West would support Eteraz but sadly no:

My only problem with the stoning sentences is that they are not equally prosecuted for men and women. I also think that there is room to grow in this area and use modern techniques such as lethal injection; but I do believe that death is an appropriate sentence for these kinds of crimes.

So, if the Iranian regime stoned men to death for committing adultery, then that would be considered an improvement by Umar Lee.

This is so vile that no-one can actually make it up.

The Great European Civil War Is Beginning On Multiple Fronts

Yesterday we brought you the news of the civil war being waged in the streets of France between Muslims and the police. The police are actually experiencing three times the casualty rate of the American armed forces in Iraq. By the end of the year, it is anticipated 15% of the French police force will have been injured in what the police chief has termed an "Intifada."

I think the good news in that story is that the French police are fighting and are asking for bigger weapons to do so.

In Britain on the other hand, the police seem to have surrendered. And, as I have been warning for quite some time, when the leaders fail to protect the people, the people will take matters into their own hands.

Witness what is happening in Windsor. The papers call it rioting. I call it the opening shots of the Great European Civil War:


Extra police are being drafted into the Windsor area today after three nights of violent clashes between white and Asian youths.

Gangs have fought battles in the streets using baseball bats and pitchforks. A Muslim-run dairy which wants to build a mosque was petrol bombed. Dozens of officers have been deployed to stop and search youths and mounted police are being brought in. ...

Tensions have been growing between residents and the owners of the dairy, who have applied to convert an office building into a mosque for their workers.

Despite a lack of planning permission to use Technor House as a place of worship, workers and visitors have been praying there.

Violence flared for the first time on Monday outside the building in Vale Road in the Dedworth area of Windsor. There was an altercation between a teenage boy and dairy staff during prayers. It escalated and the windows of several vehicles were smashed. Amid claims that the boy, his mother and teenage sister were assaulted, up to 50 young people clashed on Tuesday night.

Windows of the makeshift mosque and dairy vehicles were smashed. Residents said gangs of Asian youths travelled from Slough to fight the white gang. One youth was reportedly arrested for carrying a 12-inch knife.

As I said.....almost alone among treacherous fools and those more 'sophisticated' than we black and white americans

Iran’s dance to avoid sanctions involved secret deal with Europe

larijani_turban.jpg
Iran sought to keep secret its suspension of uranium enrichment as part of a deal with Europe for renewed talks, but the effort was scuttled after it was disclosed by Bush administration officials opposed to the plan. As a result, talks on the nuclear issue failed to reach an agreement.European negotiator Javier Solana met last Wednesday in Berlin with Iranian negotiator Ali Larijani and sought to conclude a deal that would have had Iran secretly suspend uranium enrichment and return to talks.

The deal was being supported by those in the State Department who favor the European appeasement-oriented approach towards Iran and was opposed by conservatives who say sanctions should not be put off any longer.


Amwpns.jpg

Under the deal, Iran would have announced that it was temporarily halting uranium enrichment work and would have couched the halt as a result of technical problems with the enrichment program.

Treachery. Plain and simple. Why doesn't the Bush admin name names? What will they do, work against us?

Ukraine sells Iran strategic radar systems designed to detect U.S. stealth aircraft

kolchuga.jpg
MOSCOW — Iran has ordered and acquired several advanced anti-aircraft systems from the Ukraine.

Russian industry sources said the Ukraine has sold an undetermined number of Kolchuga anti-aircraft radar systems to Iran. The Kolchuga passive-detection systems are capable of spotting enemy aircraft up to 800 kilometers away.

The sources said Kolchuga would enhance Iran's air defense umbrella. At least 10 such systems were sold at $25 million each, they said.


Besides Israel and a very shaky Britain, and Australia who can the USA DEPEND ON?

Winds of War: Why the West Needs to Grow a Moral Backbone

From The Gathering Storm

An interesting article titled Pope Benedict, Islam, and the European Death Wish prompted me to post a blog that I have been meaning to write over the last few weeks. The thought for this blog came from a conversation with a close liberal friend of mine.

It seems even though her family does not watch TV or read many newspapers, the thought had entered her mind that there was something not right with the way the non-Muslim world was interacting with Muslims. In particular, the Muslim rage over the Mohammed cartoons and now the Pope’s remarks. I assume even the most jaded liberal can’t ignore certain world events even though their response may not be what we hoped wit would be. But in t is case, it was.

She was concerned that Europe just may be committing cultural suicide and wondered why? For the record, her and her husband in particular, are devout multiculturalists.

The article mentioned above gave a clue to why the secular West and Europe in particular where secularism is the most advanced, could not find the moral backbone to oppose the advances of a Muslim ‘cultural jihad’. The article states:

Pope Benedict XVI's lecture at the University of Regensburg on September 12 now joins a litany of other ginned up slights that apparently illustrates just how deeply the West hates Islam. What is astounding is that the West takes this seriously, and allows the Muslim outrage industry to frame the debate, even to the extent of internalizing the Islamic conceit that the Regensburg speech was all about them. It wasn't. The Regensburg speech was largely about Europe; in fact, the papacy of Benedict XVI is turning out to be all about Europe…..Benedict surely understands that Nazism and communism were ailments of the European mind. As he put it in his Regensburg address, this was the triumph of reason above religious faith, and it so twisted European thinking that a kind of religious faith developed in these conceptions of reason, themselves, a faith that justified the worst acts of barbarity the world had ever seen.

Now here’s the key point.

Now Benedict understands the challenge he faces. First, Europe lost its faith in the Christian balance between faith and reason. Next, Europe lost its faith in reason without faith. This is the continent that Benedict inherited, a postmodern wasteland.

But it’s more than that. It’s a ‘moral wasteland’ ruled by the Left who sees everything in relative matters. All views, all values, all philosophies are equal. I’m OK. You’re OK. Moral equivalency reigns in the Leftist world.

And that’s the problem and why Europe, and the US if we don’t watch it, will be overcome by a stronger moral philosophy encouraged by the Left because Muslims believe in absolutes while the West does not.

Islam is a complete way of life. It embraces the spiritual, social, moral, economic and cultural life of its followers, as well as their belief in God. This all encompassing system is similar to the Rule of the Holy Roman Empire and the Popes who headed it up in the Middle Ages. Just as Christian morals, ideals and ideas permeated the society of the Middle Ages to its core as ruled by the Holy Roman Church, so did Islam at the beginning of the 21st Century.

A secular culture without absolutes – no right or wrong, no good or evil, cannot stand up to an absolute believing culture with finely defined lines between what they believe and don’t believe, what is advantageous to is and what is not, what they find good and what they find evil, and what behavior is appropriate and what is not. A cultural moral equivalency where everything is equal can not muster the will to stand up for some absolute morals and beliefs. It becomes a culture not worth defending. The belief in self-preservation is lost.

The relativistic culture is not worth preserving because in accepting in everything, it believes strongly in nothing.

Am I talking the need for religion here?

No. A secular value system can include the difference between good and evil, right and wrong. Exercising common human values of common decency, common courtesy and common sense is a good foundation for such a society. And from these common human values can come a philosophy of what it right and what is wrong, what needs to be encouraged and what needs to be discouraged in a society. The common human values can help its participants ‘take a stand’ and oppose attempts from other strong societies who seek to undermine and overturn those values instead of using the concept of diversity to strengthen all aspects of a society and not some at the expense of others.

How does a society assimilate using these ideas? What would be a logical and beneficial result?

Perhaps this letter to the editor from a friend’s wife that was never published by a MSM outlet has the clue.

Dear Editor:

So many letter writers have based their arguments on how this land is made up of immigrants. Ernie Lujan for one, suggests we should tear down the Statue of Liberty
because the people now in question aren't being treated the same as those who passed through Ellis Island and other ports of entry. Maybe we should turn to our history books and point out why today's American is not willing to accept this new kind of immigrant any longer.

Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to the United States, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in New York and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new American households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home.

They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture. Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws to protect them. All they had were the skills and craftsmanship they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.

Most of their children came of age when World War II broke out. My father fought along side men whose parents had come straight over from Germany, Italy, France and Japan. None of these 1st generation Americans ever gave any thought about what country their parents had come from. They were Americans fighting Hitler, Mussolini and the Emperor of Japan. They were defending the United States of America as one people. When we liberated France, no one in those villages were looking for the French-American or the German American or the Irish American. The people of France saw only Americans.

And we carried one flag that represented one country. Not one of those immigrant sons would have thought about picking up another country's flag and waving it to represent who they were. It would have been a disgrace to their parents who had sacrificed so much to be here. These immigrants truly knew what it meant to be an American. They stirred the melting pot into one red, white and blue bowl. And here we are in 2006 with a new kind of immigrant who wants the same rights and privileges. Only they want to achieve it by playing with a different set of rules, one that includes the entitlement card and a guarantee of being faithful to their mother country.

I'm sorry, that's not what being an American is all about I believe that the immigrants who landed on Ellis Island in the early 1900s deserve better than that for all the toil, hard work and sacrifice in raising future generations to create a land that has become a beacon for those legally searching for a better life. I think they would be appalled that they are being used as an example by those waving foreign country flags.

And for that suggestion about taking down the Statue of Liberty, it happens to mean a lot to the citizens who are voting on the immigration bill. I wouldn't start talking about dismantling of the United States just yet.

'nuff said.

In tolerating the intolerable, one accepts the unacceptable

As a modest follow-up to Pastorius' article on the statements from the despairing French police union, I offer the following statistics about the war on the garbage collectors of Paris.

The French Christian conservative blog Le Salon Beige reported Wednesday that there have been 130 assaults on Parisian garbage collectors so far this year. Garbage collectors now pick up trash under the watchful eyes of a police escort, such is the degree of danger in some Paris neighborhoods.
French officials are coy about identifying just which parts of the city are actually the most dangerous for their employees.
I wonder if their reticence is prompted by who might live there..?
[my translation follows:]

“Since May 2005, the garbage collectors of the city of Paris have been obliged to work under police protection in one neighborhood of the XVIIIth municipal borough ["arrondissement"]

This police accompaniment was decided following several violent incidents targeting the garbagemen, said Yves Contassot, Green adjunct to the mayor, in charge of the Environment and sanitation.
Mr Contassot refused to name the neighborhood, while specifying that since the beginning of the year the city’s garbage collecting personnel have been the target of 130 “assaults” throughout Paris, ranging from “forceful insults to physical assault”, with around thirty cases [originating] from the same XVIIIth municipal borough.”

A laconic commentor at the Salon Beige blog sums up the inevitable results of France's passivity in trying to wish problems away:
“In tolerating the intolerable, one accepts the unacceptable”.

Tellingly, much of the frustration expressed by both the "youth" riots, and incidents such as this assault on garbagemen, centers around how hard it is to keep adapting to the increasingly awful conditions... rather than finding ways of actually reducing (or, dare we dream, eliminating) these awful conditions.

And totally unacceptable despite a good domestic agenda

Franklin Roosevelt had his first hundred days. House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi is thinking 100 hours, time enough, she says, to begin to "drain the swamp" after more than a decade of Republican rule.

As in the first 100 hours the House meets after Democrats — in her fondest wish — win control in the Nov. 7 midterm elections and Pelosi takes the gavel as the first Madam Speaker in history.

Day One: Put new rules in place to "break the link between lobbyists and legislation."


Who can disagree?
wejustkilled.jpg
Day Two: Enact all the recommendations made by the commission that investigated the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Who can disagree? But the commission gave A+ to the Bush admin for it's financial cut off and tracking of terrorist money as a result of FISA and SWIFT tracking, something MS Pelosi considers illegal, so what are we talking about?
Time remaining until 100 hours: Raise the minimum wage to $7.25 an hour, maybe in one step. Cut the interest rate on student loans in half. Allow the government to negotiate directly with the pharmaceutical companies for lower drug prices for Medicare patients.
Who can disagree? But as someone in cardiovascular research since 1987, how will you prevent the US from becoming like Britain, a desert for new research? Or are you planning to be a parasite off foreign advancements?
Broaden the types of stem cell research allowed with federal funds — "I hope with a veto-proof majority," she added in an Associated Press interview Thursday.
Who can disagree?
All the days after that: "Pay as you go," meaning no increasing the deficit, whether the issue is middle class tax relief, health care or some other priority.

To do that, she said, Bush-era tax cuts would have to be rolled back for those above "a certain level." She mentioned annual incomes of $250,000 or $300,000 a year and higher, and said tax rates for those individuals might revert to those of the Clinton era. Details will have to be worked out, she emphasized.

"We believe in the marketplace," Pelosi said of Democrats, then drew a contrast with Republicans. "They have only rewarded wealth, not work."

"We must share the benefits of our wealth" beyond the privileged few, she added.

Most of this sounds ok, but since her foreign policy ideas are appeaseology, since her committee chairmen have all expressed their need for a scourge, impeachment hearings, and generalized 'fighting beneath the walls of Byzantium', and since demands for specific policy ideas to resist the war being foisted upon us continue to look like "Dancing with the Stars" I cannot pull the lever for a SINGLE DEMOCRAT, despite ANY OF IT

Papyrolatry

JEDDAH, Saudi Arabia (AFP) – US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has called for the Hamas-led Palestinian government to recognize Israel, saying at the start of a regional tour that innocent Palestinians were being hurt by factional infighting.

Asked at a media conference in the Saudi city of Jeddah Tuesday what to do about violent clashes between the ruling Islamist Hamas movement and its rival Fatah, Rice said “the answer is for the Palestinians to find a government that can be committed to the Quartet principles”.

AFP, via LGF.


This was on Tuesday, October 3, followed by outright talks of Ms. Rice with terrorists—Joshuapundit has some righteous commentary on the whole thing. My blog brings out things from the angle of ideological warfare, so here’s my take.

Second in a chapter of ...an evening among the jewish "progressives"

Several months back I lightly described a great dinner in which there was a first sensing of my neolithic leanings among the intellectual and academic, and btw, wonderful people we hang with.
wolpa%20shtetl%20syn.jpg

Last night I was priveledged to be at a more formal gathering (at which the entire group was jewish, and believe me when I tell you academically AND professionally accomplished) which began when one member was invited to comment on inspirations he felt at the recent Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) service. There were three, and the last was related to a meeting with Bishop Desmond Tutu, who apparently expressed his disappointment with the american people for their lack of outrage over the tortures visited upon ????? (enter victim name) by the Bush admin.

This caused a general expression of quizzicalness around the table with the lack of the same outrage and an assumption at the table that this represented a consensus. The consensus was, in my mind that Bush was promulgating torture, that we were torturing, that the recent fight in congress was between those who wanted to torture and those who didn't, and that it was incomprehensible that the american people were not aghast.

These are all first rate people as both friends and acquaintainces.

The executive of the group as the expressions finally seemed to exhaust themselves, invited at this moment any other feelings.

My lack of self control met the moment.

Stalking the Elusive Arab 'Moderate'

From The Jewish Exponent

Washington's fantasies about the Palestinians will waste money and lives

[...] The mantra that "solving the Palestinian problem" is the only way to enable such moderates to pop out of the ground is the tip-off that nothing hopeful is likely to come from our latest diplomatic offensive.

The bottom line is that all the money the administration will spend in the coming year to encourage such moderates is not merely money wasted. It will enable the infrastructure of Palestinian terror groups (whether labeled as such by Washington or not) to sustain themselves, rather than starving them out (and admittedly, many of their numerous supporters as well).

That is a folly that will be paid for in Israeli and Arab blood. And it is that prospect -- rather than partisan squabbles -- that friends of Israel should be considering right now.

What should the free world do while facing Islamist intimidation?

Guest Editorial by Robert Redeker:

The reactions caused by Benedict XVI’s analysis of Islam and violence highlight the underhanded maneuver carried out by Islam to stifle what the West values more than anything, and which does not exist in any Moslem country: freedom of thought and expression.

Islam tries to impose its rules on Europe : opening of public swimming pools at certain hours reserved exclusively for women, ban on caricaturing this religion, demands for special diets for Muslim children in school cafeterias, struggle to impose the veil at school, accusations of Islamophobia against free spirits.

How can one explain the ban on the wearing thongs on Paris-Beaches* this summer? The reasoning put forth was bizarre: women wering thongs would risk “disturbing the peace”. Did this mean that bands of frustrated youths would become violent while being offended by displays of beauty? Or were the authorities scared of Islamist demonstrations by virtue squads near Paris-Beaches?

However, the authorization of the veil on the street is more disturbing to public peace than wearing a thong, because it invites complaints against the upholding the oppression of women .This ban represents an Islamization of sensibilities in France, a more or less conscious submission to the diktats of Islam. At the very least it is the result of the insidious Muslim pressure on the minds: even those who protested the introduction of a “Jean Paul II Square” in Paris would not be opposed to the construction of mosques. Islam is trying to force Europe to yield to its vision of humanity.

As in the past with Communism, the West finds itself under ideological watch. Islam presents itself, like defunct Communism, as an alternative to the Western world. In the way of Communism before it, Islam, to conquer spirits, plays on a sensitive string. It prides itself on a legitimacy which troubles Western conscience, which is attentive to others: it claims to be the voice of the oppressed of the planet. Yesterday, the voice of the poor supposedly came from Moscow, today it originates in Mecca! Again, today, western intellectuals incarnate the eye of the Koran, as they have incarnated the eye of Moscow. They now excommunicate people because of Islamophobia, as they did before because of anti-communism.

This opening to others, specific to the West, is a secularization of Christianity that can be summarized thus:the other person must come before myself. The Westerner, heir to Christianity, is the that exposes his soul bare. He runs the risk of being seen as weak. With the same ardor as Communism, Islam treats generosity, broadmindedness, tolerance, gentleness, freedom of women and of manners, democratic values, as marks of decadence. They are weaknesses that it seeks to exploit, by means of useful idiots, self-rigtheous consciences drowning in nice feelings, in order to impose the Koranic order on the Western world itself.

The Koran is a book of unparalleled violence. Maxime Rodinson states, in Encyclopedia Universalis, some truths that in France are as significant as they are taboo. On one hand: “Mohammed revealed in Medina unsuspected qualities as political leader and military chief (…) He resorted to private war, by then a prevalent custom in Arabia (….) Mohammed soon sent small groups of partisans to attack the Meccan caravans, thus punishing his unbelieving compatriots and simultaneously acquiring the booty of a wealthy man.”

There is more: “Mohammed profited from this success by eradicating the Jewish tribe which resided in Medina, the Quarayza, whom he accused of suspect behaviour.” And: “After the death of Khadija, he married a widow, a good housewife, called Sawda, and in addition to the little Aisha, barely ten years old. His erotic predilections, held in check for a long time, led him to ten simultaneous marriages .”

A merciless war chief, plunderer, slaughterer of Jews and a polygamist, such is the man revealed through the Koran.

Of , the Catholic church is not above reproach. Its history is strewn with dark pages, for which it has officially repentaed. The Inquisition, the hounding of witches, the execution of the philosophers Giordano Bruno and Vanini, those wrong-thinking Epicureans, in the 18th century the execution of the knight of La Barre for impiety, do not plead in the church’s favor. But what differentiates Christianity from Islam is obvious: it is always possible to go back to true evangelical values, the peaceful character of Jesus as opposed to the deviations of the Church.

None of the faults of the Church have their roots in the Gospel. Jesus is non-violent. Going back to Jesus is akin to forswear the excesses of the Church. Going back to Mahomet, to the conbtrary, reinforces hate and violence. Jesus is a master of love, Mahomet is a master of hatred.

The stoning of Satan, each year in Mecca, is not only an obsolete superstition. It not only sets the stage for a hysterical crowd flirting with barbarity. Its importis anthropological. Here is a rite, which each Muslim is invited to submit to, that emphasizes violence as a sacred duty in the very heart of the believer.

This stoning, accompanied each year by the acciedental trampling to death of some of the believers, sometimes up to several hundreds, is a rite that feeds archaic violence.

Instead of getting rid of this archaic violence, and thus imitating Judaism and Christianity (Judaism starts when it abandons human sacrifice, and enters civilization; Christianity transforms sacrifice through the Eucharist), Islam builds a nest for this violence, where it will incubate. Whereas Judaism and Christianity are religions whose rites spurn violence, by delegitimizing it, Islam is a religion that exalts violence and hatred in its everyday rites and sacred book.

Hatred and violence dwell in the book with which every Muslim is brought up, the Koran. As in the Cold War, where violence and intimidation were the methods used by an ideology hell bent on hegemony, so today Islam tries to put its leaden mantel all over the world. Benedict XVI’s cruel experience is testimony to this. Nowadays, the West has to be called the “free world” in comparison to the Muslim world; likewise, the enemies of the “free world”, the zealous bureaucrats of the Koran’s vision, swarm in the very center of the frre World.

Seething rage alert - stage one

Jack Straw calls on Muslim women to lift their veils or Kufr calls for blasphemy in muslim area

Jack Straw, the leader of the House of Commons, has called on Muslim women to lift their veils as a way of breaking down barriers between communities. motw2.jpg

In a disclosure that risks upsetting Muslims, he says he now asks women to remove their veils when they attend weekly surgeries in his Blackburn constituency.

Mr Straw, a former Foreign Secretary, says that the veil can be regarded as a visible statement of “separation and difference”. Some Muslim scholars do not believe it is obligatory.


behead_everyone.jpg

In his weekly coumn in the The Lancashire Telegraph he has expressed concern that “wearing the full veil was bound to make better, positive relations between the two communities more difficult”.

Mr Straw said he had been mulling over the issue ever since a veiled woman attended his surgery and said she was pleased to meet him face to face at last.

He wrote: “The chance would be a fine thing, I thought to myself but did not say aloud.”.

The encounter led to thoughts about the “apparent incongruity between the signals which indicate common bonds. Above all, it was because I felt uncomfortable about talking to someone face-to-face who I could not see”.

What's Wrong With a Little Apartheid?

The Telegraph via Dhimmi Watch:

Plans for a Muslim-only hospital in Holland have sparked a heated debate over its separate all-male and all-female wings, halal food and roster of duty imams.

A populist Right-wing party described the plan for the clinic in south Rotterdam as "a step backwards to the Middle Ages".

There will be segregation between the sexes, with male patients treated by an exclusively male nursing and medical staff and similar arrangements for females.

More:

It is the brainchild of a health industry entrepreneur, Paul Sturkenboom, who plans to employ 45 doctors and 275 nurses. Staff will not have to be Muslims.

Paul Sturkenboom mentions Jewish and Christian hospitals and says:

This compact hospital will give Muslims time to integrate at their own speed.

Um, no. This hospital takes Muslims backwards from the present state in Holland. It makes sure that Muslims don't have to bother with integrating at all.

Muslims Wage War Against France - French Police Casualty Rate Higher Than American Rate In Iraq


Nikolas Sarkozy looks as if he doesn't know what to do. Who can blame him?

Today's edition of the London Telegraph contains an article wherein the head of the Police Union in France declares,

"We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada ..."

My friend Blueslord from Actual Jihad has translated an article from the French paper Le Figaro which indicates that this year police casualties will reach 15% of the total police force:

"Violent acts are rising in an exponential proportion", says a speaker from the Police. "If this tendency continues, we will have 15% of the policemen hurt in a year".

That means French police police are suffering a higher number of casualties than are American armed forces in Iraq. The total number of casualties in Iraq per year is approximately 6,800, which represents about 4.5% of total American forces.

The casualty rate for the French police force will be over 3 times higher than that of the American military forces in Iraq. That is a stunning statistic.

It seems France really is at war, and thus far the French police are showing no signs that they intend to surrender, unlike the British police.

Peter King goes to the top of the A list

Steve Emerson, from today's NY Post and Frontpage
pking.jpg

King, a Long Island Republican, has warned his constituents that some leaders of the Islamic Center of Long Island have "publicly stated that the CIA or the 'Zionists' may have been behind the attacks" of 9/11.

The record backs him up. Indeed, the center's leadership has a long history of extremism. But both Newsday and CNN chose to ignore the facts and smear King.

Last week's CNN report was one of the most dishonest pieces of reporting I have ever observed in my entire 27-year career. In attacking King, CNN reporter Jason Carroll claimed the congressman had said the members of the Long Island mosque were "part of an Islamic threat that could cause another 9/11."
King has said no such thing; the red herring simply distracts from the real issue - the center's history of employing extremists and defending terrorists.

Ghazi Khankan was an ICLI officer until two years ago, director of both interfaith affairs and communications. Shortly after 9/11, he told the New York Times that the U.S. government hadn't proven Osama bin Laden's role in the attacks: "We need to have proof. We need to have facts. If there is something wrong, let's get together through the United Nations, not act as a lynch mob."

His rant at a fund-raiser in Virginia that October was recorded: "Why is it assumed that Muslims were behind the attack? . . . We know at least three people assumed to be hijackers who are still alive in the Middle East. The question is, who is impersonating these Muslim names? Who benefits from assuming Muslims are behind this tragedy and who benefits from this tragedy?"

How angry are Muslims?

I was going to a post about the BBC disproportionately giving the oxygen of publicity to extremist voices from the Muslim community, compared to other media outlets. No real change there...

Then it got me thinking. "Muslim Anger" - is that really news? So I donned my investigative hat and put "Muslim Anger" into Google news. And I got 2,170 hits!

So maybe we're just living in angry times, and like, everybody is really angry, and stuff? So I tried some others, as depicted in this bar chart

Conclusion

Muslims are really angry, 2,170 times more angry than a Christian or a Hindu, but infinitely more angry than either a Buddhist or a Sikh.

Suicide bombers brainwashed in Pakistan, says Afghan spy agency

KABUL - Would-be suicide bombers detained in Afghanistan claim they have been brainwashed and equipped by Arab, Chechen and Uzbek militants in Pakistan, the Afghan intelligence service said Wednesday.

The claims were from 17 attackers who were arrested in the past month before they had the chance to strike, Sayed Ansari, the spokesman for the Afghan National Directorate of Security told reporters.

Pakistan, which like Afghanistan is a key US ally in the “war on terror”, has repeatedly denied the existence of militant training facilities on its soil.

“All of the detained have confessed they received training for suicide attacks, attacks against schools and institutions from Arab, Chechen and Uzbek instructors on the other side of the border (Pakistan),” said Ansari.

I'm no conspiracy freak, but every once in a while you get that creepy feeling

Did Iraqi ops take out jetliner? "I KNOW THE F***ING TRUTH," the one confirming source e-mailed me

Let me start with a confession. After five years of research, I still do not know for sure who fired the missiles that resulted in the destruction of TWA Flight 800 off the cost of Long Island July 17, 1996. Whatever the exact scenario, I do believe, however, that there was terrorist involvement. And the more evidence I see, the more I believe that Iraq was among those involved.

An eye-opening article in the October American Spectator by Harvard Ph.D. and former Clinton adviser on Iraq Laurie Mylroie sheds some new light on the issue. Although she does not talk about TWA Flight 800 in this article, Mylroie has in the past. In this article, she focuses on the extraordinary KSM "family," the most likely operatives behind the plane's destruction.

Wafa Sultan on the Cartoon Crisis-- "A Crack in the Wall"

Wafa Sultan, excellent as always.

From GIYUS: "Wafa Sultan, a Syrian-American psychiatrist, talks about Islam and the Mohammed Cartoons crisis as being the first 'crack in wall' of the Islamic self-criticism and blindness to others' opinion". (A 9 minute interview on Danish TV, English with Danish subtitles).

There's really nothing more I can add-- watch this video! :-)

Storm Track Intimidation: Mystical Tree in Indonesia an Affront to Muslims

From The Gathering Storm

Here’s another sign of why I think Islam is a mental illness and produces bizarre perceived offences. Well, what do you expect from people whose main goal in life is to memorize some ancient religious book.

A Muslim Indonesian group attacked a century-old ‘mystical’ tree to propagate Islam.

Muslim hardliners chopped up a 100-year-old banyan tree in Jakarta to halt a rumor about its special powers from spreading, officials in the Indonesian city said Tuesday. "Surely, no one can believe that a tree is more powerful than a human," Zainal Arifin, the leader of the Muslim group that admits to attacking the tree, was quoted as saying by Detik.com news website. "We did this to propagate Islam."….. Arifin said the fact that nothing supernatural happened to the Muslims who attacked the tree proves that it has no mystical powers.

Duh! You think! So they had to cut down the tree to prove it? I wonder if TV psychics and other fuzzy headed thinking is a booming trade in Indonesia. This just anther sign of a secular state being intimidated into accepting one religion’s version of reality.

The governor of Jakarta has filed a complaint with police after a Muslim youth group hacked and damaged a 100-year-old banyan tree.

Whoa!! Did you catch that? The word ‘muslim’ and ‘youth’ actually tied together? Will wonders never cease? Could Indonesia be awakening from its slumber and see the threat before it as some European countries are beginning to see?

Perhaps we should take a cure from China who doesn’t take any crap from its Muslim population.

  • All mosques must register with the government supervisory body, the Islamic Association of China.
  • The party closely monitors activities at mosques in Xinjiang, where it wages a public battle against what it terms the “three evil forces” of religious extremism, separatism and terrorism.
  • The government launched a “political re-education campaign” for imams in charge of mosques in Xinjiang following the September 11, 2001, attacks on the United States.

As for the rules for the celebration of Ramadan in China they let Muslims know that it’s their culture and social rules that are in charge.

  • New restrictions were also placed on religious practise at schools and other institutions during Ramadan. “The authorities force Muslim schoolchildren to have lunch,” the US-based Uighur Human Rights Project said in a recent report. “State employees are under similar pressure,” it said. A religious affairs official in Khotan, a poor Uighur-majority area of southern Xinjiang, confirmed that a new regional regulation covering celebration of Ramadan had been in force for “five or six years”. “The cadres work for the state, and students and teachers also cannot take part in it (fasting),” said the official, who declined to give his name.
  • “There is time limit for the religious activities in the mosques,” the Khotan official said by telephone. “All the activities should be finished before 11:30 a.m. and nobody can stay in the mosques at night.
  • “All the restaurants should open as usual, to provide a service to the people who do not believe in Islam or to the tourists from outside (Xinjiang),” he said.

How refreshing - telling the minority to adapt to the host nation’s culture and social rules.

Muslim police officer was excused from guarding London's Israeli Embassy after he objected to the duty on 'moral grounds'

joe-horses_ass03_copy.jpg
Sir Ian Blair has ordered an 'urgent inquiry' after a Muslim police officer was excused from guarding London's Israeli Embassy after he objected to the duty on 'moral grounds'.

Sir Ian said: "Having learned of this issue I have asked for an urgent review of the situation and a full report into the circumstances."

PC Alexander Omar Basha - a member of the Metropolitan Police's Diplomatic Protection Group - refused to be posted there because he objected to Israeli bombings in Lebanon and the resulting civilian casualties of fellow Muslims.

In a move which has caused widespread astonishment at Scotland Yard, senior officers in the DPG agreed that that PC Basha should be given an alternative posting.

The officer, who carries a gun, is now thought to be guarding another embassy.

Hope it's not ours !

This total moron should be a rent a cop, and the idiot who approved this change needs to review the words "PUBLIC SERVANT"

Killing the infidels is our religion

“Killing the infidels is our religion, slaughtering them is our religion, until they convert to Islam or pay us tribute.”

This above is a quote from a devout Islamic fighter and found in this article. Ed Koch, an ex-New York City mayor, argues that Islamists really mean it and his fellow Democrats are out of touch with reality. Our problem isn’t being too tough but our continual appeasement.

Ed worries the disposition to appease is getting worse here and in Europe:

Laborites have demanded Blair's head … future leaders of the Labor Party have decided they will withdraw from Iraq in order to appease the Islamic terrorists. The Conservative party … appears headed down the same appeasement path as the New Labor Party. … France has already flinched in the face of threats by the Iranian government … How long will it be before we all awaken to the inherent danger facing us? Appeasement never works. It only encourages new and escalating demands.

London Police Surrender To Islamists


In London, Police Chief Ian Blair is making sure Muslims are well-represented in the ranks of the police force by cooperating with the wishes of a police organization which doesn't seem to be interested in policing. (Thanks to Religion of Pieces for sending this in to us.)


September 30, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - London's Metropolitan Police is no longer a credible arm of law enforcement, having willingly and seemingly gleefully fallen victim to the sort of multicultural insanity running amok throughout Europe.

The Metropolitan Police Department's descent into dhimmitude began two months prior to 9/11, when working with the Association of Muslim Police a decidedly Islamist police union, the force began recruiting hijab-clad officers.

The Muslim Police officers union's goals are to proselytize for Islam [Da'wa] within the force while resisting assimilation, below from their website:

"To assist Muslims in the police service to observe their faith, promote understanding of Islam within the police service and the wider community, provide a forum for all Muslims in the police, support their religious and welfare needs...improving their immediate working environment and retaining them in the service, To assist in the recruitment and retention of Muslim staff."

Note that in this manifest there is no mention, recognition or committment to what are normally thought to be the primary goals of law enforcement and certainly no mention of helping to protect the UK from further terrorist activity.

The initiative which was announced at a conference "Protect and Respect - Everybody's Benefit" for the first time allowed women recruits to wear headscarves and ankle length gowns.

Additionally the agreement permitted Muslim cops to pray while on duty, demand halal food and have altered meal schedules during the month of Ramadan.

Four years later, the 300 Muslim officers were not enough for the Metropolitan Police Chief Ian Blair, who stated that, "more Muslim police officers were needed in London to reflect the city's population" and that he wanted "as many as he could get."

Blair has spoken in support for restraining the number of stops and searches among the city's 700,000 Muslims to "less then 10 times per day." This number is still deemed too high among the radicalized population.

Ostensibly the idea of having more Muslim police, would mean that they could be used to handle cases involving their own community. However it seems clear that the true purpose of the constant agitation for more Muslim officers is simply to create an even larger interior lobby within the force which will throw up constant roadblocks and question nearly every confrontation between Muslims and the non-Islamic community.

As proof of this, consider the head of the Muslim Council of Britain, Mohammed Abdul Bari, who denounced the arrest of 2 Muslim brothers whom he called "good boys." This despite the fact that both of them had a "very extensive police record," including charges against one of the brothers involving "possession of a prohibited weapon," a "noxious, liquid gas, said to be CS spray."

Muslim police superintendent Ali Desai concurred with Abdul Bari's assessment. He even appeared at a press conference supporting the brothers, even referring to them as "good lads."
