And with the sound of a falling leaf, Bush comes to nothing, and the democrats occupy a pinhole of gravitas

A few day ago I made the point that US policy was about to implode.
saud.jpg

It is not imploding because of our enemies, nor is it imploding because of the american people, nor is it imploding because of the democrats.

It is imploding because George Bush is not the man.

Two years after President Bush's touted campaign for democracy in the Middle East, the State Department is now of the view on freedom that less is more when U.S. strategic interests are at stake. As a result, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice has decided to make it clear to Arab, and particularly Gulf leaders, that Washington will no longer make democracy a condition for improved relations. The administration badly and immediately needs the help of Saudi Arabia to end the Sunni insurgency in Iraq. Western diplomatic sources said the U.S. hopes Riyad could convince Iraqi Sunnis to join the government of Prime Minister Nouri Al Maliki and destroy Al Qaida. In return, the United States would guarantee the rights and interests of the Sunni minority in Iraq, particularly against the threats of the Shi'ite majority.

But Rice has more than suggested a U.S. payoff to Saudi rulers as well.

For american policy it is 1953.
My disgust is profound, manifest and complete.

I wonder what the difference would be if Clinton were still president?
Any?
What would Harry Truman have done embattled, assailed on all sides?
He'd have walked on the skulls of those he had fired, to find those who can get it done, and ignored all the calumny.
FDR would have smiled at the press, and done it off screen.

Bush has tolerated mediocrity and poor performance by subordinates in the name of loyalty and now his place in history will forever be MEDIOCRE and marred by what might have been.
Who will care that he was loyal towards those he hired but could not do the job?

I am sickened...read on and wonder WHAT WE ARE DOING?

Become a Terrorist, Earn a Diploma

From The Gathering Storm

Israel National News reports what Palestinians wouldn’t do to get a decent education in Israel.

Correspondent Haggai Huberman reports on a new phenomenon among the Arabs of Judea and Samaria: Youths carry knives or small bombs across checkpoints in order to get themselves arrested so that they can study for high school matriculation exams at the State of Israel’s expense. Sitting in jail for a number of weeks or months is a small price to pay, and the returns are significant: A high school diploma, and a high social standing as a “freed terrorist.” Huberman notes that earlier this week, IDF soldiers reported that they had thwarted an attack in the northern Shomron when they arrested two 19-year-old boys carrying two pipebombs of one kilogram (2.2 lbs.) each. However, the IDF later concluded that the boys were merely trying to get arrested for the purpose of matriculation exams, and that the pipebombs were not designed to cause significant damage.

“The Palestinians’ corrupt government is so incapable of educating their kids that they must rely on the hated Israelis to do it for them?”

Winds of War: Jihad-America Style

From The Gathering Storm

The Counterterrorist Blog recently posted an article by Dr Walid Phares dissecting the recent al Qaeda’s “as-sahhab” production, in which Ayman Zawahiri introduces Jihadist Adam Gahdan to the world as a senior speaker to the American people on behalf of the movement. What results is a chilling reminder that this so called ‘war on terror’ goes much further and much deeper than the current Administration and its opponents think.

Dr. Phares is a Senior Fellow with the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies and a visiting Fellow with the European Foundation for Democracy. He is the author of Future Jihad: Terrorist Strategies against America.

Dr. Phares warns that the video tape should be taken seriously. Not necessarily at the level of detecting the next terror attack but at the level of understanding this prelude to Future Jihad both in America and within the West. He lists several issues raised in the speech that clearly show what the West – and especially America is facing and even names names of those individuals who are a danger to them and those that are their ‘useful idiots’.

1) The hand behind the message

In short, Azzam’s videotaped message is indeed “American.” Experts have heard it in US and Canadian cities and internet is flowing with it. Whether Gadahn was reading from a prompter or not –and I believe he was with great skills- I tend to believe that such a speech –rather than being dismissed as mere propaganda- is a message coming to us from what’s already inserted inside America, which leads me to the second point

2) Who is it destined to?

It is basically addressed to those who will carry a “Jihad in America,” possibly asserting Adam Gahdan as their leader. Also, this is a very intelligent move to pierce the linguistic shield of America’s media and reach US citizens directly, as a way to spread confusion at least among those who have a hazy understanding of the Jihadists.

3) The ideological platform

In short, the “Azzam” video reconfirms clearly, in an English language that academic translators won’t be able to distort, that al Qaeda’s movement worldwide and in the United States is seeking total annihilation or conversion of the enemy: American and other democracies.

4) Argumentation tactics:

The “speech writer,” emulating many commentators on al Jazeera or al Manar, hopes to rally many among those who “hate Bush and Blair” but stops short of stating that Jihadism will hate all future US Presidents and British Prime Ministers “if they do not convert.” He reminds us of the Crusades, Inquisition, Hiroshima, and killings in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obviously, the “writer” skips the Genocides of Sudan, and the massacres of Algeria, the Kurds, Shiites perpetrated by Salafists or Baathists.

5) The enemies of Jihad in America

Sensationally but not unexpectedly, he “name” a number of intellectual-enemies in this country: Daniel Pipes, Steven Emerson, Robert Spencer and Michael Spencer. Rarely Jihadi Terrorists at this high level media exposure named symbols of their enemy’s intelligentsia. And in addition to “experts” named in the tape, Gadahn goes on a ferocious attack against American “Tele-Evangelists” and their media, showing the other type of foes al Qaeda is very upset with.

6) The “friends” of al Qaeda?

“Azzam” names “sympathetic” personalities for whom he has messages for action; He asks journalist Seymour Hirsh to “reveal more” than what was published in a New Yorker article on the War: Obviously an open call by al Qaeda to M Hirsch to resume the attack against the US War on Terror. Then “Azzam” turn to two British journalists and thank them for their “admiration and respect for Islam” encourage them to do the final step: Convert. He names British MP George Galloway and journalist Robert Fisk. But more troubling in Gadahn’s tape was his direct call to Jihadists within the US Armed forces to work patiently till the time comes and they should continue to aggregate while escaping the surveillance of their military authorities. This theme, which I covered briefly in Future Jihad, is of great concern to US national security. The “Azzam” speech brings further concerns as to the credibility of this threat.

7) The Al Qaeda offer: Conversion or fire

“Azzam”’s mission in this tape was to deliver a message. His bottom line is this: We –the Jihadists- have you cornered everywhere and you are not going to win this war. His central message is typically Jihadic: “Surrender, convert or the fire:” Meaning war on Earth, all of it, and Hell fire after death.

So there you have it. Plain, simple, naming the allies and the opposition – and all in English – unaltered by academic polemics.

U.S. now views Hizbullah as a military-terror hybrid with global reach

Gertz....

WASHINGTON — Following its war with Israel, Hizbullah is no longer considered merely a terrorist organization.

Officials said the intelligence community and State Department have concluded that Hizbullah has evolved into a hybrid of a military force in Lebanon and an international terrorist group.

Support and sponsorship by Iran and Syria made Hizbullah the most lethal non-state actor in the Middle East.

"[On Oct. 9, the Israeli daily Yediot Aharonot reported that Hizbullah received from Iran missiles with a range of 1,000 kilometers. The newspaper attributed the information to German intelligence.]

Hizbullah's performance in the 34-day war against Israel exceeded projections by the U.S. intelligence community, which believed that Hizbullah would seek a ceasefire within a week of fighting.

Frank Urbancic Jr., principal deputy coordinator of the State Department's Counterterrorism Office, told the House Subcommittee on Middle East and Central Asia on Sept. 28 that Hizbullah could be compared to an "octopus with the head in southern Lebanon and tentacles moving around the world." He said Iran and Syria were responsible for Hizbullah's supply and support.

So what is the plan? Hello? Hizballah needs missile with a 600 mile range for WHAT PURPOSE?

Infidel Babe Of The Week


Wild Bill wrote in to tell me that many of the Infidel Babes I pick look like they could do with a few more trips through the chow line. He tells me that in the heartland they like the cornfed babes who don't look like they're gonna up and blow away the next time Al Gore goes into fire-breathing mode.

Well, I can understand. You want a woman whose gonna be around for the long haul.

So, Wild Bill sent me some pretty interesting pics (some of which I simply can not post here due to agreements with my lawyers), and I gotta say, I really do appreciate it. Kept me busy for time, pondering over which one which one was hottest.

I had to whip out the old Pastorius One-to-Ten Scale to make my decision. And, the two Daisy Dukes, Catherine Bach and Jessica Simpson definately registered a ten. But, truth is, I still couldn't make a decision. It was a, uh, toss up, so to speak.

I'll leave it to you. Between these two, which babe is the hottest?

Perils in thought if you are muslim

Muslim leader fears backlash over Liberal views

hannah_shahid.jpg
The new president of the Muslim Canadian Congress (MCC) says she is feeling the wrath of Islamic fundamentalists because of her stance on such issues as terrorism, homosexuality and religious law.

Now, Mississauga's Farzana Hassan Shahid is calling on Queen's Park to intervene. She wants Ontario Attorney General Michael Bryant to incorporate the kind of threats made by various radical groups against her and other members of the MCC into the framework of existing hate crime laws.

"There is an underlying fear all the time...that uneasy feeling is part of my daily life," Hassan Shahid told The News. "I have been declared an apostate (a person who forsakes their religion) twice, for opposing the Sharia (a form of Islamic law). We have asked Michael Bryant to include or acknowledge accusation of blasphemy and apostasy into the existing hate laws so the public and legal frame work is sensitized to this issue."

Hassan Shahid said she and other members of her organization receive threatening e-mails and are subjected to other acts of hatred from radical Muslim groups. One strongly worded hate-mail accused her of being the, "younger sister of Satan."

Freedom of thought = apostasy?
Is that all there is to be while these freaks are about?


No doubt there are those who would say that pointing out that freedom of thought is apostasy is to increase the power of radical Islam by enraging the salafist and khomeinist freaks...to me that would be like saying to expose David Duke is to spread the influence of the KKK.

What is common to “Happy Diwali” and booze in taxis?

Apparently, both are “haraam” in Islam.

Below are two completely different news reports…but both equally unbelievable - and both left me aghast.

Don’t Bring That Booze into My Taxi” in which Daniel Pipes has written about “A minor issue at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP)” where Muslim taxi drivers have been refusing to carry passengers “visibly carrying alcohol”…

In the words of taxi driver quoted in the article, “It is forbidden in Islam to carry alcohol.”…

Sometime in 2000, Muslim taxi drivers asked the Metropolitan Airports Commission for permission to refuse passengers carrying liquor - or even suspected of carrying liquor - without being banished to the end of the line. MAC rejected this appeal, worried that drivers might offer religion as an excuse to refuse short-distance passengers.

The number of Muslim drivers has by now increased, to the point that they reportedly make up three-quarters of MSP’s 900 cabdrivers. By September 2006, Muslims turned down an estimated three fares a day based on their religious objection to alcohol, an airport spokesman, Patrick Hogan, told the Associated Press, adding that this issue has “slowly grown over the years to the point that it’s become a significant customer service issue.”

“MAC proposed a pragmatic solution: drivers unwilling to carry alcohol could get a special color light on their car roofs, signaling their views on alcohol to taxi starters and customers alike.“

But as Daniel has rightly pointed out, “the two-light plan intrudes the Shari‘a, or Islamic law, with state sanction, into a mundane commercial transaction inMinnesota. A government authority thus sanctions a signal as to who does or does not follow Islamic law.

What of taxi drivers beyond those at MSP? Other Muslims in Minneapolis-St. Paul and across the country could well demand the same privilege. Bus conductors might follow suit. The whole transport system could be divided between those Islamically observant and those not so.

Why stop with alcohol? Muslim taxi drivers in several countries already balk at allowing seeing-eye dogs in their cars. Future demands could include not transporting women with exposed arms or hair, homosexuals, and unmarried couples. For that matter, they could ban men wearing kippas, as well as Hindus, atheists, bartenders, croupiers, astrologers, bankers, and quarterbacks."

There is more on this at More on Those Minnesota Taxi Drivers.”

***

Meanwhile in Malaysia, “The head ofMalaysia’s Shariat Department has asked Muslims in the country not to greet Hindus on Diwali.

The PTI news report mentioned that, “Fauzi Mustaffar, head of Shariah department, in an email directive to office staff has said that Diwali is a religious festival in which Hindu deities were worshipped and greeting Hindus on the occasion was like practicing polytheism to Muslims.

‘So Muslims who have inadvertently wished Hindus a Happy Diwali, Happy Durga Pooja or Happy Lakshmi Pooja must immediately repent and not repeat it in the future,’ Fauzi said in his e-mail, according to The Star daily."

The government was quick to distance itself from this view – but stopped short of calling it wrong or incorrect interpretation of the law.

Sometimes I wonder where will this end?

IAF liquidates three-man Palestinian terrorist cell

Friday the 13th... Perhaps today was a good day to die. Let's call it the Good Friday.

(IsraelNN) The Israel Air Force scored a direct hit on a car carrying a three-man terrorist cell Friday morning in northern Gaza. All three terrorists were eliminated.

The IDF reported that the cell was involved in many Kassam rocket attacks, including the five rockets fired at the Jewish town of Sderot on Thursday. The fifth rocket hit an electric power line in the evening, leaving the Jewish town in darkness. Power was gradually restored to the city over the next several hours.

The car carrying the terrorists was laden with Kassam rockets. The cell was on its way to launching them at Jewish targets when it was liquidated. Among the three dead is the commander of a northern Gaza branch of the Al-Kassam Brigades, Imad Al-Makusi, 32.

Message From America's Truth Forum

Dear Concerned Americans:

For some time, America’s Truth Forum has been recognized for being on the very cutting edge of the struggle to expose Radical Islam’s menacing threat to our homeland. In keeping with expectations, we’ve encountered numerous obstacles along the way. Most challenging has been the mainstream media’s imposition of virtually impenetrable roadblocks – obstacles implemented to prevent us from reaching out to fellow citizens who share our concerns for national security and the safety of future generations. Fortunately, we’ve discovered alternative means to circumvent those barriers.

In the process, we also learned how to effectively deal with detractors and maneuver in an environment best described as “PC gone wild.”

Bar none, the greatest challenge currently facing us, and placing our nation in harm’s way, is apathy. According to Webster’s dictionary, “apathy” is best defined as a lack of concern or “indifference”.

Sustained periods of uncertainly, especially when a nation is at war, should give rise to greater concern amongst the populace. We are currently engaged in a struggle for our very existence yet, astoundingly, few seem to take note or even care. This is true in nearly every case except, of course, for our Islamist enemies who are poised to benefit from our indifference.

The struggle against Islamofascism is clearly being lost on the home front. Please consider the following:

§ There are over 1.1 billion Muslims worldwide. According to conservative estimates, at least 10% or 110 million are radicalized and prone to violence. Of equal concern, these jihadis have rallied the support of another 40% or 400 million. In summary, that’s some 500 million people who are sworn and committed to our death and destruction.

§ Islamic religious leaders granted Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda the right to kill up to 10 million Americans. Most experts agree that plans are in the works for catastrophic attacks involving weapons of mass destruction. Yet, our political correct policies prohibit racial profiling and other effective measures that must be employed by law enforcement agencies to protect the homeland.

§ Over 90% of American Mosques are Saudi funded and tainted by Wahabbi doctrine. Hate-inspired anti-American messages and literature are shared with their hungry audiences on our own soil.

§ American institutions of higher learning like Harvard, Georgetown and many others have received multi-million dollar gifts from Saudi Arabian dignitaries – funds being used to purchase influence and capture the minds of our youth.

§ On an annual basis, tens of thousands of prisoners are being converted to Islam in our penal institutions. Upon release, many of these same felons are recruited into a standing army awaiting marching orders.

§ Terrorist training facilities continue to operate freely within our borders.

§ Muslim Students Associations (MSA’s), Islamic centers and Mosques across America and Canada sponsor paintball outings and promote survival skills. Paintball, in itself, may be a harmless sport but one must consider ulterior motives since the MSA’s also benefit from Saudi funding. The National MSA’s online publication promotes firearms training with the following quote that they attribute to Mohammed, “Power is shooting, power is shooting, power is shooting”. They also recommend Muslim students that paintball as an excellent way to learn about combat. This certainly begs the question as to why college-based religious organizations would advocate sharpening combat skills.

§ Despite its dark history and terrorist ties, CAIR continues to exert tremendous influence in Washington. Their propaganda machine is supported by multi-million dollar donations from Saudi Arabia.

§ In the words of CAIR’s Chairman, Omar Ahmad, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to be dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth”.

§ CAIR continue to host regional conferences for thousands of Muslims nationwide. Keynote Speakers include the likes of Siraj Wahhaj. According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, Wahhaj is the un-indicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

§ Our enemies are forthright when voicing their intensions with regard to establishing a caliphate and delivering the entire world to Allah. We are the ones who refuse to accept the fact that they mean business and continue to live in a state of denial.

§ Over 6300 Muslim-inspired terrorist attacks have taken place worldwide since 9/11 – begging the question as to why our fearless leaders in Washington continue to refer to Islam as a religion of peace.

The future of America is in peril and we can’t afford to rest in the hands of a scant few who chose to stand defiantly in the face of evil.

Silent are the voices of those patriots who stand proud while paying homage to our nation’s fallen servicemen on Memorial Day.

Absent are the statesmen of a by-gone era when men served their nation with dignity and upheld their oaths to preserve the constitution.

We are currently engaged in fighting a war for our very survival against a clever, cunning and deceptive enemy – an enemy that is skilled in using the rights guaranteed by our own Constitution against us.

What future awaits upcoming generations - meaning your children? Who will be there to protect them from this evil, if we fail to confront it now in earnest? The time has come for all concerned Americans to either rise up and take a stand or acquiesce and sink further into a state of apathy. A lack of action, at this point, will only seal the fate of our heirs. We owe it to our founding fathers who did better than condemn us to making a choice between death, conversion and enslavement. The time has come for those of us who value life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to unite, in a common front, and be heard.

To quote Robert Spencer of Jihad Watch:

“In this era of violent intimidation, it is crucial for the continued life of our free society that we speak out, and do so fearlessly.”

Show your concern for the future of our great nation. Don’t abandon those who are engaged in a daily struggle, both here and abroad, to preserve the American way of life.

America’s Truth Forum needs your financial support to continue to fight on your behalf. This struggle has nothing to do with partisan politics, instead it has everything to do with survival. Above all, please make the effort to attend the symposium this November 10th & 11th in Las Vegas, Nevada, and spread the word to other concerned Americans.

These events are designed to do nothing more than provide a forum for the dissemination of the truth – facts provided by internationally recognized counterterrorism experts that could prove potentially life saving for you and your family. There will be no better opportunity to engage the experts in dialogue.

Contributions and registration forms may be mailed to:

Glastonbury, CT. 06033

Your support of our initiative is greatly appreciated.

Respectfully,

TEACHER SACKED FOR WEARING THE VEIL



A MUSLIM teacher has been axed after she insisted on wearing a veil to teach young children.

veil

Aishah Azmi, 24, was asked to take it off in class after pupils said they found English lessons hard to understand because they could not see her lips move.

The junior school in Dewsbury, West Yorks, said she could wear her veil in corridors and the staff room - but must remove it when teaching. Angry Miss Azmi refused, claiming the veil was part of her cultural identity, and was suspended.

A council source said yesterday: "It is ridiculous. How can you teach English to young children with a veil over your face?

There is also another incident that happened in a UK school, the pupil was arrested after being reported to the police, by her teacher for asking to change her learning group because she could not understand the language the other group members were spreaking, the pupil who asked for a move was English

Art - A New WMD?

This is a follow-up to my previous post on the Louvre giving more detailed background information on the project to divest the national museum of part of its collections. The information is translated and somewhat abridged from an article inLibération.

Both articles appear at my website Galliawatch.


Abu Dhabi is dreaming of becoming the cultural capital of the Persian Gulf, and France would like to serve as guide. By the year's end, the Minister of Culture, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres (known as RDDV) is expected to travel to the Emirate to conclude an agreement on the creation of a museum bearing the Louvre label in Abu Dhabi... After signing an agreement in July for the construction of an "Abu Dhabi Guggenheim", with Frank Gehry as architect, the Emirate is anxious to possess a great universal museum. But will the French be able to follow through?

The unheard-of demands of the Emirate are worthy of the Pharoahs. It is seeking a grand general museum, completely like the Louvre in its conception, built on the sands of Abu Dhabi by a French architect, Jean Nouvel, so it seems, and staffed by teams of experts and French conservators, with a schedule of exhibitions extending over several years. But that's not all. The project is part of an even more ambitious scheme: to create five museums in one fell swoop. Besides the Louvre and the Guggenheim, are planned a maritime museum, a museum of Islamic art, and a "center of living arts". All within a luxurious tourist complex, reflecting what the Emirate is ready to pay to lead Abu Dhabi, an oil-rich country of 700,000 inhabitants, into the post-petroleum age...

"And who better than France to represent this cultural radiance?" say the delegates from the Emirate in Paris.

After all, didn't the Emirate sign a contract last year with the Sorbonne, permitting the university to set up a college in the Emirate that offers courses in literature, history, geography and art history, taught in French by professors from the Sorbonne and awarding French diplomas?

Note: This is the first I've heard of the Sorbonne in Abu Dhabi.


According to those close to Jacques Chirac, "The President has always had close relations with the rulers of the Emirates. For a long time France has had special ties to Abu Dhabi, in the fields of defense, trade, higher education and culture. The French President has supported the project from the beginning."

The presidential order is clear: the project, as it appeared in early 2005, could not be turned down. Besides, how could Paris turn down the Emirate's request, when Airbus is behind schedule in the production of the A380, and the Emirates airline company of Dubai, that ordered 43 of these giant planes, is not happy about the long delays from the European consortium? Some things are unavoidable.

Note: Here is one possible motive for the surrender of the Louvre collections by the French to the Arabs. The unanswered question (actually the unasked question): did the Emirate make the French an offer they couldn't resist? Was there a threat? Or, are the French so accustomed to surrender that a threat was unnecessary?


The article goes on to describe the origins of the project and names as its promoter Yazid Sabeg, a Frenchman known to be a proponent of affirmative action and a man very close to the Emirates. Sabeg, from the start, had the complete approval of the President and then had to win over the Ministry of Culture:

At the Ministry their eyes popped open wide at the appetite of the Emirate: "At the time the Arab delegation unveiled a gigantic project of cultural-touristic urbanism to be implanted on the island of Saadiyat (a natural reserve 27 square kilometers, just off the coast of Abu Dhabi) that, at one end of the island, would bring five museums together by the year 2012, and at the opposite end create a magnet for tourists with luxury hotels and a golf course", explained one diplomat...

Henri Loyrette, the curator of the Louvre, who had initiated the Atlanta project, began to have serious doubts about Abu Dhabi:


In fact, the head of the Louvre rebelled at the idea of yielding the name Louvre as if he were selling a label for ready-made clothing...And everyone began to wonder about the artistic freedoms in a monarchy where the interdictions of Islam would preclude the exhibition of nudes and religious figures. "We began to wonder who Sabeg was really working for. And suddenly, Sabeg was off the case," says one expert...

At this point, what seems to have happened is that the French authorities had to move Henri Loyrette, the Louvre's curator, out of the picture as well, in order to move ahead with their plan. So an independent group was created to lead the operation, composed of experts from the great French museums, and charged with the tasks of conception, architecture, and cataloguing the collections. The group was entirely financed by the Emirates!

In other words, the Emirate will pay cash - 750 million euros at least. At that price, the Louvre and the other French museums accepted (did they have any choice?) what had previously seemed unacceptable: to lend their art works and to commit to a ten-year program of temporary exhibitions in Abu Dhabi...

Is it safe to say that the French government, in need of money, is being sustained by the Arab countries, in exchange for the French patrimony? In short, has France sold her soul to the devil? This is, indeed, Eurabia in action.

Storm Track Infiltration: To Dhimmi or Not To Dhimmi - That is the Question

From The Gathering Storm

So how are things going in France? How about the Intifada? That’s right. An Intifada is one its way in France.

"Michel Thoomis, the secretary general of the hardline Action Police trade union, demands that officers be given armored cars in the most dangerous areas. “He said yesterday: ‘We are in a state of war, orchestrated by radical Islamists. This is not a question of urban violence any more, it is an intifada, with stones and Molotov cocktails. You no longer see two or three youths confronting police, you see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their “comrades” free when they are arrested.’”

In other words, a civil war!

The French police union declared to media that its members are now “in a state of civil war” with Muslims. This attack is particularly in the intensely populated areas referred to as “banlieu estates.” Much unemployment is reported there. Police officers are being injured daily. Officials are confused as to what to do. Muslims are intent on creating havoc, no matter what the governmental warnings. It is becoming so out of control that police are debating what to enact more severely in the “no-go zones,” that is, the areas where Muslims have such an upper hand that there is no civil way by which to corral their violence.

And the problem is growing.

“The number of attacks has risen by a third in two years. Police representatives told the newspaper Le Figaro that the ‘taboo’ of attacking officers on patrol has been broken.” “Michel Thoomis, the secretary general of the hardline Action Police trade union, has written to Mr. Sarkozy warning of an ‘intifada’ on the estates and demanding that officers be given armored cars in the most dangerous areas. You no longer see two or three youths confronting police, you see whole tower blocks emptying into the streets to set their “comrades” free when they are arrested.’ “He added: ‘We need armored vehicles and water cannon. They are the only things that can disperse crowds of hundreds of people who are trying to kill police and burn their vehicles.’

Meanwhile, the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing in France according to this report: Islam Grows in France with State-Sponsored Mosques.

Another state-sponsored mosque is being constructed in France, where Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy took action for the reinterpretation of secularism. With the support of the French state, Muslims, who previously congregated in various buildings for prayer, will now have mosques in downtown locales. The construction of one mosque, Creteil Mosque, was commenced on Thursday night. The mosque project proposed by Muslims living in Val-de-Marne of Paris three years ago was finally implemented with the support of the municipality. When completed by 2008, it will be the first mosque with two domes and a minaret in the region. The mosque will have a 2,000 person capacity. Land for the mosque worth 4,000,000 euros was granted by the Creteil Municipality. The municipality will also donate 1,000,000 euros during the construction process. The number of mosques is too few for the huge Muslim population in France, Cathala said recalling that immigrant Muslims, who have been sidelined by the dominant culture, could perceive the lack of mosques as another sign of exclusion.

And why is it the responsibility of the French government to pay for the mosques? Why don’t the Muslims pay for it themselves? I wonder how many new Cathedrals have been built in France with government money. Or perhaps, it’s a payoff to keep the ‘excluded’ Muslims from being offended and having an excuse to riot again?

Cathala expressed strong reaction to criticisms claiming he had violated the principle of secularism by allocating financial resources to the construction of the mosque. Cathala noted that using secularism to disguise fear and the denial of diversity distorts the basic principle of the republic. The law on secularism adopted in 1905 bans government funding for religious institutions. However, Cathala reminded that under the same law, the state must ensure equal opportunities to perform religious obligation to all citizens.

France needs to get its priorities straight. Are they a dhimmi nation or not?

Speaking of a world without Zionism, ever wonder what it would look like?

Here's how it worked.....

Jews build greenhouses doing the work....
greenhouses_green.jpg

Israel announces it will leave Gaza ...then....

American Jewish philanthropists contributed $14 million to buy former Gaza settlers’ greenhouses for Palestinians, a news report said yesterday.

Without the funds, the Jewish settlers would have destroyed the greenhouses to keep them out of Arab hands as they were forced out of Gaza Strip, The New York Times said.

The greenhouses provide jobs for 3,500 Palestinians and had been a lucrative market for fresh produces for Jewish settlers.

The Times said Mortimer B. Zuckerman, publisher of the New York Daily News and a real estate tycoon, last week got a request from former World Bank head James D. Wolfensohn to raise money in order to save the greenhouses. Zuckerman sent out word to Jewish organisations in the United States for help.

Within 48 hours, he received $14 million. Wolfensohn, who contributed $500,000 of his own, is the international envoy to Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza.

He represents the sponsors of the so-called road map for Mideast peace — the United States, the European Union, Russia and the UN.

The Gaza pullout is part of the quartet’s peace plan.

The private fundraising efforts to buy the greenhouses spread quickly and got US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s support.

She called donors and thanked them for helping the peace process in the Middle East, The Times said.

"I Love The Way People Live Here"


Thanks to YARGB for making me aware of this:


Salman Rushdie


"But you see it every day, this surrender,' he says. He runs through a list of the theatres and galleries that have censored themselves in the face of religious fundamentalist protests. He mentions that the entire British media - from the BBC down - placed itself in purdah during the Mohammed cartoons episode. 'What I fear most is that, when we look back in 25 years' time at this moment, what we will have seen is the surrender of the West, without a shot being fired.

They'll say that in the name of tolerance and acceptance, we tied our own hands and slit our own throats.

One of the things that have made me live my entire life in these countries is because I love the way people live here.'"

Aww, A Response from "UmmahFilms"


I never expected a response from either of the "ummahfilms" folks personally to my post about their little taqiyya project over on WWCMD?, but I ended up getting one from "Thinking Brother". Unfortunately, it is a blog comment version of the "form letter". It's a post from his own seperate blog. Well, if he wants to share his response to us "white Islamophobes", I'll just help him along. Eventually these propagandists will realize that their arguments are utterly useless against us, and able to be picked apart on various levels. I'm cross-posting this as I assume I have permission, since it was left in full on my blog. From: The Thinking Brother:

"My response to another Islamophobe rant is to go more on the offensive. Not to offend, but to rather expose the Islamophobes of who they are and what they are about. Not to bash Christianity, but to show the Islamophobes that they are more skeletons in your closet than you want to admit to.

Your hatred does not bring peace or understanding or unity but more hatred, less unity and less understanding. So why do you hate?

Now back to our regularly scheduled program: Okay, you Islamophobes, you call yourselves infidels. What, do you think it is cute trying to use reverse psychology thinking that you're mocking Muslims and Islam by using an "offensive term" like infidel to describe yourself? Well, infidel, you call yourself that so infidel, listen to this.

Anyway, there has been a lot of Internet chatter regarding free speech on websites like Youtube after a white person named Michelle Malkin (wait a minute, she's Filipino not white!) whined that her attack on Islam was really an attack on Jihadis and extremists and her cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad (saaws) was to speak out against the Jihadis and extremists. Yeah, it is like the Crusaders who murdered and raped people in the name of Jesus forcing mostly non whites to be Christian (from Jerusalem to Spain to the Americas to Africa and elsewhere) were the only ones that would be offended if a person decided to mock Jesus. Jesus is revered in Christianity and mocking him does not only upset the "extremists" but the non extremists as well just like mocking the Prophet and trying to say that your video was attacking Jihadis and extremists because you cleverly used footage from terrorist attacks to mask over your true hatred of Muslims and their religion Islam.

Interesting enough, the biggest killers in the name of religion have been Christians and this is proven by history. From the Crusades, Inquisition, to even more recently Bosnia, the only that stole land and resources, raped women, forced natives to convert by the sword, more than ANYONE ELSE has been Christians. It was just in the past few centuries when the agnostics and atheists (yes, the true "infidels and heathens") were the ones who had to reform Christianity so that Christians did not kill people who believed that the earth was not flat. My ancestors were stolen from Africa, forced to abandon their culture and even religion, and most often converted to Christianity. So thanks to the heathens and infidels, it reformed Christianity and Christians to the point that they have killed and enslaved less people than they did a few centuries ago.

Non believers reforming a religion they don't believe in, how hilarious. And it wasn't Muslims who murdered 6 million Jews but Germans, most of them are Christians not atheists. And it wasn't Muslims who murdered over 200,000 civilians in Japan with a nuclear weapon, it was Christians. And it wasn't Muslims who started WWI, WWII, Cold War, etc., it was Christians. Hundreds of millions have died and these same people have the damn audacity to say that Muslims are violent and fanatical! Most of it started by white Christians, who make a small minority in the world today but start most of the major wars and have the highest rate of racism of any ethnic or racial group. It is no coincidence that nearly all of the Islamophobes are white or those who mainly associate themselves with white racists.

What, so you will tell me that it happened back then but not now! What! Look at the nearly 20,000 people who are murdered every year in America, the 100s of thousands people raped every year, the crime that has TERRORIZED communities from east to west. And guess who commit these acts of crime and terror? You guessed it, 99% of them are done by non Muslims! And where just talking in AMERICA, I am not even mentioned South America, Europe, Africa or Asia! How can you overlook all the murders, rapes, robberies, assaults, etc., committed by non Muslims in your country every year and insist that Muslims are a violent bunch? How often do you see Muslims on TV shows like Cops?

And these hateful hypocrites hate it when people defend Muslims and Islam. If you make Muslims look anything less than evil, you to them are evil. The devil has took over their hearts and minds and replaced it with hatred, ignorance and pure and utter hypocrisy that cannot be match by anyone or anything else. They have shifted their racism from mostly and historically black and other non white ethnic groups to now Muslims. It's like it is something inherited from generation to generation, racists just can't stop hating. Now in post 9/11 America, they feel safe to bash Islam and Muslims because it is okay to. They won't bash blacks or latinos because they will get so much negative reaction that they don't want to deal with, so instead of giving up hatred for good, they shifted their racism to Muslims.

Now I have seen the very same hypocritical Islamophobes who misquote verses in the Quran regarding Jihad (that make up less than TWO PERCENT OF THE QURAN, THEY REFUSE TO QUOTE THE REMAINING 98 PERCENT!!!!) and insist they are knowledgeable of the meaning of the verses and that they are not twisting the meaning the Quran. But when these lying racist hypocrites are told to read verses in the Bible like Matthew 10:34 or Ezekiel 9 and MANY OTHER VERSES, they cry foul. They say, "oh no, you cannot read it literally. There is a metaphorical meaning to what Jesus said when he said he did not come to bring peace or the sword". My question is, what part of it is metaphorical? The part when he alleged to have said that he did not come to bring peace really meant he came to bring peace or that the sword really means flowers and candies?

And don't forget the classic Ezekiel 9 where God orders people to murder men, women, children and the elderly all the name of God. But no, they either say that was the God of the OT or once again, that we cannot take these verses literally.

When these hypocrites are told that they are misinterpreting the Quran, they will often say that the Quran needs no interpretation and verses are meant to be taken literally. A whole science of interpreting the Quran called tafseer was developed in the early days of Islam just to deal with the fact that you cannot literally interpret every verse in the Quran, even the Quran says that there are verses that are "mutashabbihaat" (verses that are not clear in meaning; see the Quran 3:7). But those with hatred and ignorance do not care for the truth. They shifted they long standing and traditional hatred of blacks and picked a new enemy: the Muslims. The same ignorant traits shown by the Islamophobes can be seen by those who hate blacks and other non whites.

And getting back to Mrs. Malkin. Ethnically she is Filipino, but mentally she is as much of a white racists as any white racist. Being white is not confined to just the Caucasoids, and being a white racist is not just confined to the racist Caucasoids that are out there.

Hatred does not resolve problems but creates more problems. What is there in offending 1.5 billion people except in more hatred, more ignorance and more violence? Are these people sadists or what?"

This guy is leaving this whole post as a comment as I said, so use the links above to respond if you so desire. Their films are at their own site, www.ummahfilms.com as well as Google and of course at YouTube here. As for choosing "my take", I'd have preferred a more original one.

Apple "Mecca Project" is the new insult to Muslims?

On October 10, 2006, an Islamic website posted a message alerting Muslims to what it claims is a new insult to Islam. According to the message, the cube-shaped building which is being constructed in New York City, on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets in midtown Manhattan, is clearly meant to provoke Muslims. The fact that the building resembles the Ka'ba (see picture below), is called "Apple Mecca," is intended to be open 24 hours a day like the Ka'ba, and moreover, contains bars selling alcoholic beverages, constitutes a blatant insult to Islam. The message urges Muslims to spread this alert, in hope that "Muslims will be able to stop the project."

Iraq: Abducted and raped, young Christian women and girls are driven to suicide

Baghdad (AsiaNews) – Young Christian women and girls have been abducted and released after ransom money was paid only to commit suicide because of the shock, violence and shame they experienced. This is happening in Baghdad where kidnapping has become a growth industry. Criminal gangs are lining their pockets as the number of victims grows and the line-ups at border posts grow even longer with people trying to flee the country.

Christians from any denominations, clergy or laity alike, are one of the preferred targets in the capital.

In Mosul on Monday, another priest was abducted, Fr Paulos Eskandar, from the Syrian Orthodox Church. A huge ransom has already been asked. (He was beheaded on Wednesday, October 11 - ed.)

Sources in some communities of nuns in Baghdad have relayed other stories they witnessed. Last Sunday two young Christian women were abducted but under different circumstances: one at home as her helpless family could do nothing but watch; the other, at an open market where four armed men spirited her away in a car leaving behind a distraught mother.

Often incidents do not end with the prisoner’s release. In one case in Baghdad, the victim committed suicide after the ransom was paid and she went home because of the torture and sexual violence she suffered.

In another case, a young woman talked to her family by phone (the kidnappers allowed her to speak to her family to reassure them that she was alive) and told them: “I’m dead” (referring to being gang raped). She eventually committed suicide whilst still in the hands of her tormenters.

Unofficial estimates put the number of young women and girls abducted in the last two weeks at 12.

Meanwhile Iraqi Christians are increasingly scared. Sources in northern Iraq told AsiaNews that “hundreds of families are on the run, fleeing towards the border with Syria.”

Well, at least the UK still can control its 14 year old school girls!


Wow, I just don't know what to say other than that this girl should be a national hero. Will someone now arrest her teachers for being utterly insane? Or too pathetically stupid to be teaching anyone? Or better yet, more "pitchforks and baseball bats"? I mean look at this girl. I think we know who gets the "Lord Voldemort Award" for this week. From The Brussels Journal:

"A teenage schoolgirl was arrested by police for racism after refusing to sit with a group of Asian students because some of them did not speak English. Codie Stott’s family claim she was forced to spend three-and-a-half hours in a police cell after she was reported by her teachers. According to Codie, the five – four boys and a girl – then began talking in a language she didn't understand, thought to be Urdu, so she went to speak to the teacher.

“I said ‘I’m not being funny, but can I change groups because I can’t understand them?’ But she started shouting and screaming, saying ‘It’s racist, you’re going to get done by the police’.” Codie said she went outside to calm down where another teacher found her and, after speaking to her class teacher, put her in isolation for the rest of the day."

Signs of an impending cataclysmic disaster for the USA

Amid a wearying George Bush’s (have you looked and listened to him carefully ..to the WAY he sounds and appears?) embattled stubborn Iraq policy signs of a strategic American policy surrender to ‘reality’ foretell Somalia in 1993, writ large and engraved in granite and video which will brand the scene at 22 Gia Long Street the modern epitaph for the American people, poorly lead, and willing to accept mediocre leadership, but who would have responded to the call HAD IT BEEN MADE.
losing.jpg
Make no mistake, what is happening right now is the abandonment of Jefferson for this world. Spreading freedom, and seeing it as a model for change is going to be abandoned in a retreat to promoting STABILITY as the only workable outcome for the 'brutish' children of the middle east. Saddam was a stable government. That policy has another endpoint as well. Iran has a stable goverment. China has a stable government. Syria has been stable for a long time. So is KSA. Shall we promote the Al Saud? Is that all there is? If so, better, IMHO to make a fortress america and turn our back on the lot, and follow Washington's farewell dictum. A nice dream, but not possible in this world.

What shall we stand for? America stands for stability ! YAY for the flag, eh? Dream on. Worse still, if real democracy cannot serve to blunt jihadism (that is if we are not willing to do what it takes to achieve that end), then the american populace needs a new alarm clock.

We will stand for nothing . There will be an evaporation of morale, and purpose.

Bush has called in James Baker who wouldn’t touch Iraq though they had despoiled Kuwait and were utterly defeated, long before any Al Qaeda existed. Was there ever a real belief that Saddam would obey the UN in 1991? More than today over NoKo? Has diplomacy, (USSR USA excluded) EVER achieved security? Such ideas may have worked the year after the USSR dissolved, and at the beginning of the 'end of history', but this is not then.

Condi has become a card carrying member of the state department, subsumed in moral equivalence

John Bolton is reduced to trying to tell the public that what is going on in the UN with North Korea will accomplish something.

The UN is a serious place for serious solutions

A new U.S. draft Security Council resolution circulated Thursday night would authorize only non-military sanctions against North Korea and require a new U.N. resolution for any further action, a key demand of China.

serious_business.jpg
The draft, obtained by The Associated Press would only allow non-military sanctions such as economic penalties, breaking diplomatic relations or banning air travel.

It also eliminates a previously proposed blanket arms embargo. And it urges North Korea to speedily implement a September 2005 agreement in which it pledged to give up its nuclear program in exchange for aid and security guarantees.

Claude Rains need to reappear so he can be our new UN Ambassador.

Our Generation's Churchill?

A lot of commenters here have been wondering when our generation's Churchill would show up. We might have found him (hat tip to Religion of Pieces):


The head of the British Army has launched a broadside against Tony Blair’s moral crusade in Iraq. He demands the withdrawal of British troops, or risk catastrophic consequences for both Iraq and British society. It is rare indeed for such a senior military officer to directly challenge the political authority, but General Sir Richard Dannatt is no managerial doormat; he is the sort of military leader who would make a fine head of state – a strategist with a clarity of communication that cuts through all the political waffle of the age, and manifests true leadership.

Although his context is clearly Iraq, where he warns that the presence of British troops ‘exacerbates the security problems’, his insights into the nature and objectives of Islam are illuminating. He perceptively observes that a ‘moral and spiritual vacuum’ permeates British society which is allowing Muslim extremists to undermine ‘our accepted way of life’. By this, he means that Christian values are under threat in Britain, and that foreign policy is directly affecting the UK’s domestic security.

He appears to be more than aware that the battle between the Dar al Islam and the Dar al Haab is a universal one, and believes that the West’s imposition of liberal democracy in Iraq is ‘naïve’. Indeed it is. Islam has no interest in the power of the people, and Muslim countries little respect for ‘foreign’ systems of government.

Sir Richard clearly perceives that to which our politicians are blind: the failure to support and promote Christian values is permitting the ascendancy of a predatory Islamist vision. He said:

‘When I see the Islamist threat in this country I hope it doesn’t make undue progress because there is a moral and spiritual vacuum in this country… Our society has always been embedded in Christian values; once you have pulled the anchor up there is a danger that our society moves with the prevailing wind... We need to face up to the Islamist threat, to those who act in the name of Islam and in a perverted way try to impose Islam by force on societies that do not wish it. It is said that we live in a post Christian society. I think that is a great shame. The broader Judaic-Christian tradition has underpinned British society. It underpins the British army.’

He concluded: ‘I am going to stand up for what is right for the army. Honesty is what it is about. The truth will out. We have got to speak the truth.’

The Editrix is back!

It is good to be among the living again. ;-)

Thanks to all who have stood by me and Roncesvalles during my time of forced online-abstinence.

I will write about my new life in ex-Communist East Germany soon. The culture shock is considerably bigger than the one I suffered when I moved to England. Thank God, the Saxons are kind and helpful people with a good sense of humour, so that my experiences here are by no means only, or even predominantly, of a negative nature.

But now for something completely different. I was asked by Jeremayakovka what I think of German author Hilmar von Campe: "Is he an ordinary man who has sought to do a little good? a rigorous intellectual? a fraud?"

An interesting question, which I'd like to share with you.

As von Campe was unknown to me so far, I had a look at him and his work and after a first cursory assessment I'd definitely say that he is NOT a fraud.

What impresses me specifically is that he doesn't pose as a former rabid Nazi who saw the light, but that he stresses the fact that it was looking the other way of ordinary people like himself which made the Nazi atrocities possible.

I appreciate, too, that he seems to see the Communist crimes in perspective and doesn't reckon them up against the Nazi crimes, something only too many Germans like to do.

I appreciate, too, that he draws the inevitable parallels between Nazi Germany and the recent Muslim threat. It needs a lot of courage to do that. Many former Nazi followers (like Nobel-laureated asshole Günther Grass) are falling over their own feet in anticipating obedience and dhimmitude. Everything (but EVERYTHING!) not to be called a Nazi or "racist" again. (To what extent there is the conscious ot subconscious desire behind it that the Arabs may finish what the Germans were forced to cease, namely the Holocaust of the Jews, is a different question right here.)

Hilmar von Campe's biography bears witness to the fact that the secular Leftist/Liberal ideologies are no answer to the totalitarian and inhuman threats now, as they haven't been an answer then.

Just my two Eurocents.

Non-Citizens Allowed To Vote In Belgian Elections - Result? - The Wolf Is In The Door

You know, every once in a while we hear of a European politician demanding that Euros be allowed to vote in American elections, and we just think they're talkin' trash. Truth is, they must really feel that way, because they frickin' allow non-citizens to vote in their elections. Say hello to Allah, your new MP:


Belgium introduced voting rights for non-Belgian residents in order to counter the “islamophobic” and Flemish secessionist Vlaams Belang (VB).

As a result multitudes of Muslim candidates were elected in major cities in last Sunday’s local elections.

In Antwerp the immigrants are now demanding an alderman’s post in the city government, which consists of the mayor and ten aldermen. In Brussels the Parti Socialiste (PS) is embarrassed at the election of Murat Denizli as a Socialist councilor. Denizli is a hardright Turkish extremist belonging to the Grey Wolves.

In the Netherlands political parties are facing serious problems with Turkish candidates who refuse to acknowledge the 1915 Armenian genocide.


Denying the Armenian genocide? My, what big teeth they have. The better to eat those little Belgian chocolates with, I guess. Wait, you want to eat me?

From Anti-Defamation to Intellectual Meritocracy

This post is not in any way meant as a disparagement toward the Anti-Defamation League, nor as an accusing finger against that organization, which has been engaged in sacred work, born out of brotherly love, ever since its founding. My purpose is only to draw attention to the changed situation of today in which the ADL’s traditional way of operating is no longer suitable, and then to suggest a new way, one that will both be more productive for the goal of ADL and similar organizations and enable the non-Muslim world as a whole to respond to the ideological onslaught of the Left-Islam alliance effectively.

UK minister says Guantanamo Bay "unacceptable"

glazed%20chicken.jpg
LONDON, Oct 12 (Reuters) - Foreign Secretary Margaret Beckett launched one of the British government's sharpest attacks on Guantanamo Bay on Thursday, saying the U.S. prison camp was ineffective and damaging.

"The continuing detention without fair trial of prisoners is unacceptable in terms of human rights. But it is also ineffective in terms of counter-terrorism," Beckett said at the launch of her department's annual human rights report.

"It is widely argued now that the existence of the camp is as much a radicalising and discrediting influence as it is a safeguard to security," she added.

And it is widely argued you have the intellect of a headless toad. They hated us a millenium before Guantanamo.

In response, Washington said it looked forward to the camp's closure but emphasised the need to house dangerous suspects.

Silly bovine !
These are not car thieves awaiting trial.
These are not prisoners of war.

These are men taken in war OUTSIDE the mechanism of the western conscience's ability to imagine. These are men whose PURPOSE is to kill the innocent as both strategy and tactic, and to do so while miming innocence. These are men whose design is to frustrate those processes we have built to protect the falsely accused. And like the nazis and japanese, when the war is OVER, thru, finito, kaput, muerte, tot, done, finished...they can go home.

Is that a whiff of reality I smell or is that semtex?

The Government withdrew its support from Britain’s largest Muslim organisation yesterday after accusing it of failing to lead the fight against religious extremism.

Ruth Kelly, the Communities Secretary, attacked the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) for boycotting Holocaust Memorial Day, criticising police anti-terrorist operations and “sitting on the sidelines” in the campaign against extremists.
shock_suirrel.jpg Lock and load toots !
Muhammad Abdul Bari, the secretary-general of the MCB, was invited to hear Ms Kelly’s speech, which was delivered to a Muslim audience, but refused to attend.

Ms Kelly said that she was embarking on “a fundamental rebalancing” of the Government’s relationship with Muslim organisations.

Until now ministers have viewed the MCB, which represents 400 organisations and hundreds of mosques around the country, as the most important voice among Britain’s two million Muslims.

But Ms Kelly said that in future she would engage with and give funding to organisations that represented young Muslims and Muslim women and which were taking a “proactive leadership role in tackling extremism and defending our shared values”.

Islamic Group Beheads Assyrian Priest, Crucifies 14 Year Old Boy in North Iraq

(HT: Clarity & Resolve)

Mosul, Iraq (AINA) -- On Monday, October 9, a prominent Assyrian (also known as Chaldean and Syriac) priest, Fr. Paulos Iskander (Paul Alexander), was kidnapped by an unknown Islamic group. His ransom was posted at either $250,000 or $350,000. This group had demanded that signs be posted once again on his church apologizing for the Pope's remarks as a condition for negotiations to begin.

Father Alexander was beheaded on Wednesday.

An email from a priest in Sweden, Adris Hanna, describes the Muslim terror campaign against the Christians in Iraq:

The Syriac-Orhtodox priest Paulos Iskandar was kidnapped this Monday, October 9, and beheaded today Wednesday October 11.

The Bishop in Mosul wrote me an email tonight and told me that the funeral will be held in Mosul tomorrow.

Christians are living a terrified life in Mosul and Baghdad. Several priests have been kidnapped, girls are being raped and murdered and a couple of days ago a fourteen year old boy was crucified in the Christian neighborhood Albasra.

I have also spoken to a group of nuns that were robbed and treated brutally on their way between Baghdad to Amman in Jordan.

The murder of father Paulus is the final blow for Christians, and now only hell is expected for the Christians of Iraq.

We the oriental Christians in Sweden and the rest of the Western world must protest against the genocide. We must do what we can to stop the rape, threats, hatred, robberies, murders… We must do something.

These latest murders continue an escalating pattern (1, 2, 3) of attacks against Iraq's Christians. On October fourth a bomb ripped through an Assyrian neighorhood, killing 9 (AINA 10-11-2006).

Grotesque escalation in Denmark

Some days ago a video was publizized showing members of the right-wing islam critical party ‘Dansk Folkeparti”’s youth department’s summercamp. The video showed the young politicians relaxing with some beer making Muhammed-cartoons.
The danish prime- and foreignminsters have condemned the drawings without making any excuses.
The video was made by by leftist 5th-columnists, who had joined the party to ‘expose their muslim hate’.
Today made 2 new revalations: Dansk Folkeparti has a member-magazine, which in may had an article about a german book about Muhammeds sexual preferences, describing him as a pedophile and a sick person. The article also showed a picture from the book: Mohammed and Aisha - the former with an erigated penis.
Last but not the least funniest: Today the most liberal party in Denmark towards muslims and immigrants, also has a youth department. Today they were exposed for drawing Muhammed drawings at a meeting. What a humiliation. Totally hilarious.
Now everybody wants everybody to make an excuse. But of course - nobody talks about the essence of today: Muhammed as a pedophiliac, MSM says that Dansk Folkeparti ’shows’ Muhammed as a pedophile, noone goes to the root of that.
Another thing: politicians and media worry about the friday-prayers in the muslim countries. I don’t understand - why should we in Denmark worry about a friday prayer in som backward desertcountry?
So it seems the second ‘Muhammed-crisis’ is well under way. Boykotts have already strted in some muslim countries.
Here we go again.

Winds of War: Could Muslim be Getting a Clue?

From The Gathering Storm

Many bloggers and pundits on the Starboard side of the bloggosphere have decried the fact that ‘moderate’ Muslims are predominantly silent on the acts of intimidation and terror that their fundamentalist brethren commit almost daily. We’ve asked the ‘overwhelming majority of moderates’ to get off the fence and be proactive in their support of the war against Islamo-fascism and the Islamist agenda. After all, it’s this type of mindless fundamentalism that they’ve fled from in their home countries.

And it seems, perhaps, just perhaps, the worm is starting to turn. Instead of acting the victim, there are moderate Muslim voices that ask Muslims to be more proactive in their response to Islamo-fascism.

Farhana Ali is a terrorism expert at the RAND Corporation. He wrote an interesting piece the other day at the UPI site entitled America’s Muslim Resource. He offered a list on how American Muslims can help the country with its fight against terror.

Today's Muslim Americans are often thought of as part of the problem of terrorism rather than solution -- a fifth column working against America. Certainly, a few Muslim Americans sympathize with Osama bin Laden's call for liberating Muslim lands and small numbers have provided financial support and joined the jihadist ranks. But the vast majority of Muslim Americans have no sympathy for or involvement with terrorists, any more than the majority of Italian Americans are in the Mafia, or the majority of Japanese Americans were agents of the Japanese Empire in World War II.

Some of his solutions have been what the anti-Islamic bloggers and pundits have been saying for months now.

One effective way would be to get the help of more Americans with the language skills, cultural and religious knowledge, and contacts to identify and stop would-be terrorists before they strike…….Good intelligence can't be based solely on electronic devices and satellites. Intelligence is about understanding one's adversary -- and who better to help do that than Muslim Americans? Many are native speakers of Arabic, Farsi or Urdu -- or learned these languages growing up in America from their immigrant parents…………American police departments learned decades ago that hiring African American officers would help them do a better job patrolling black neighborhoods, reducing racial tensions between police and the community, and making them aware of problems over the horizon. Bringing more Muslim Americans onto police forces could do the same today with their community. They can encourage members of the Muslim community to cooperate with local police and be better informed of suspected criminals or terrorists.

He goes on.

In addition to serving intelligence and law enforcement agencies, Muslim Americans also can be valuable to the military and other parts of the U.S. government in fighting terrorism and protecting America. They can work to help improve U.S. relations with police, military and intelligence agencies from Muslim nations that are crucial allies in the war on terrorism. They can enable U.S. military forces in Muslim nations to better understand foreign cultures, traditions, and peoples. By understanding other cultures, U.S. military forces are in a much better position to influence operations and engender long-term partnerships.

How refreshing. He ends his piece, though on a dissonant note.

Today, the detention of Japanese Americans during World War II is recognized as a terrible mistake. In addition to being a grave injustice that deprived Japanese Americans of their liberty and their other constitutional rights, the action deprived America of the services of a group uniquely qualified to help win the war against Japan. The United States can avoid repeating that mistake by utilizing the services of patriotic Muslim Americans to help win the global war of the 21st century.

Is he saying this because he believes that the Japanese interment was wrong or perhaps, he is giving a non so veiled warning to his fellow Muslims that if the moderate Muslims do not proactively show the non-Muslims in our country that they are patriots, they too may wind up in internment camps if the nation has a knee-jerk reaction to a series of new terror attacks on our soil.

I’ll choose the veiled warning.

As predicted...Russia and China ACT ..to block committing an act

RUSSIA and China are blocking an American plan to mount international inspections of all cargoes entering and leaving North Korea for fear of provoking a military showdown

dmz.jpg
North Korea underlined the concerns by saying yesterday that it would regard such sanctions as an act of war. Pyongyang threatened “physical measures”, including a second nuclear test, unless Washington ceased to confront it. President Bush said that he had “no intention of attacking” the isolated Stalinist regime and that he would pursue “all diplomatic efforts” in response to North Korea’s first atomic explosion. “Diplomacy hasn’t run its course, and we’ll continue working to give diplomacy a full opportunity to succeed,” he said. But he made it clear that President Kim Jong Il must face “serious repercussions” for sparking the world’s latest nuclear crisis.

The repercussions envisaged by Mr Bush were being contested by Russia and China as they outlined their positions on a new Security Council resolution that could be adopted as early as tomorrow.

Without cooperation by China, their entire border, slightly less than 1000 miles would become the focal point of export of EVERYTHING, No Dong, BM25's, Centrifuge technology, plutonium refining equipment, fake $100's ...the works.

It gets worse.

Cause and effect

As Motoon Rage part II is gearing up it seems that the haystack on the back of a camel named 'European tolerance' is getting dangerously heavy.

In Iran the Danish embassy was fire bombed as Iranian PMs urged Ahmedinejad to institute a boycott of Danish products.

But the NY Times (as did the NY Sun a couple of days ago) notices changes in Europe. Gradual, hardly noticeable, but changes nonetheless.

It'll be interesting to see what happens around the muslim world after Friday prayer tomorrow. Keeping piling on the straws, my dears. Just keep piling...

France vs. Intifada

Here's is more on the Civil War in Ira ... I mean France.

... a police union declared that its members were "in a state of civil war" with Muslims in the most depressed "banlieue" estates. ... Michel Thoomis, the secretary general of the hard-line Action Police trade union, has written to Mr. Sarkozy warning of an "intifada" on the estates and demanding that officers be given armored cars in the most dangerous areas. ...

Storm Track Intimidation: Is Cox Communications an Islamophe – or Just Not a Good Dhimmi?

From The Gathering Storm

Imam Abdul Malik Johari of the Council of Muslim Organizations in Washington, DC accuses Cox Communications of Ilsmaophobia because it wants to charge cable subscribers money to view an all Muslim cable channel that is free on other cable networks.

Here’s the email they have sent out.

In the Name of God Most Kind and Merciful - Please forward to Everyone in the USA

Dear Brothers & Sisters:

Asslam Alykum. After reading the following facts please call and email Cox Cable regardless who is your tv provider to end Islamophobia:

Comcast cable, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FIOS, Adelphia Cable, Buckeye Cable, WOW Cable and Shrewsberry Cable have all agreed to offer Bridges TV as a FREE channel. This is giving Muslims a voice in mainstream media. Cox Cable is the only cable operator that is charging $180 for FREE Muslim Channel. Such hatred against Islam by Cox espcially in this holy month of Ramadan is outrageous. How many people will watch MSNBC if they have to pay $180 extra for this one channel alone? For the future of Islam in America and well being of our children please immediately call and email Cox Cable.

May God be with you. Thank you. Jazak Allah.

I wonder if the Christian cable channels like TBN are free on the cable networks. I doubt it. So why should a Muslim station be granted this privilege? When contacted, Cox said that it’s normal to charge subscribers for each and very channel that’s above their basic package for additional channels.

I hope Cox sticks by its guns and make them pay for the privilege of broadcasting their Muslim agenda to non-Muslims.

Two honor murder attempts that were luckily foiled

In the first news report, from The Courier-Mail of Queensland, Australia (via IRIS Blog and Dhimmi Watch), we have a report of a Muslim girl who wanted to convert to Christianity who survived her father's attempt to murder her, but whose mother was murdered instead:
A RELIGIOUS feud between a Muslim father and his teenage daughter may have sparked a bloody domestic dispute on the Gold Coast which left the man's wife dead and him fighting for life in hospital.

Police are investigating suggestions the violence erupted after the 17-year-old girl told her father she wanted to opt out of the Islamic faith and convert to Christianity. The girl's mother is believed to have stepped in to protect her daughter, only to be fatally stabbed with a kitchen knife.

Neighbours reported hearing "blood-curdling" screams before the hysterical girl ran half-naked from their Southport home unit covered in scratches.

Police later found the body of the girl's mother, 41, inside the blood-smeared unit. Her husband was taken to the Gold Coast Hospital with a stab wound to the chest. He was last night in a critical condition under police guard.

Neighbour Caitlin Dalton was taking out the rubbish about 7pm on Monday when she heard "loud, huge, terrifying screams" coming from the unit complex.

"She (the teenager) was yelling, 'Help me, help me, they're trying to kill me'," Ms Dalton said. "Everybody heard the screams but we couldn't work out which unit they were coming from. Then this girl emerged in the stairwell hysterical and crying.

"Her clothes had been ripped off, she was just in her underwear and she had quite severe scratches down her arm and across her back."

Ms Dalton said that as residents tried to comfort the sobbing girl, she told how she had wanted to "convert from the Islam religion . . . and obviously her father didn't handle it very well".

"She said her parents were really strict," Ms Dalton said.
The father certainly. The girl is most fortunate to have survived. I'd strongly recommend making her a guest of honor in the neighborhood churches, where she can be a heroine for apostates.

Most disgusting here is how an imam justified the abomination, and not only that, he blames the mother for it too:
"It is the Islamic way that if a son or daughter does or plans to do something that is unacceptable or wrong for a Muslim then it is the mother who is automatically at fault and will bear the brunt of the blame."
In other words, he justifies the murder of the mother, regardless of whether she agreed or not. Another sign of how Islamofascists regard women as mere cattle, whose mindsets are truly nothing to them.

In the next news report, from the Detroit News (via Debbie Schlussel), it looks like an Islamofascist may have attempted an honor murder as well, albeit in a less direct way, that being to commit arson:
A 46-year-old Dearborn Heights man pleaded no contest Thursday in Macomb Circuit Court to charges he intentionally set fire to his ex-wife's Clinton Township apartment on New Year's Eve. Kenny Khalil was charged with malicious destruction of a building for using a copied key to get in and set fire to the closet of the apartment his ex-wife and former mother-in-law shared. Khalil told investigators he was in Redford at the time of the fire, but phone records contradicted that. No one was injured in the fire. He could face up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced Nov. 22.
The last name of the culprit is certainly Muslim, so yes, this could certainly have been a case of an Islamofascist who tried to commit a horrible act, and thankfully did not succeed.

Muslims?


Perhaps not but what's the chances?

FYI, there is a heliocopter landing strip 1/2 mile south ... if it is still in operation.
