WHITE HOUSE SOURCE - "IRGC IED's are a casus belli for this administration, There will be an attack on Iran."

White House getting serious about Iran options

It looks to me as if the dwarf has misjudged Bush more than Nasrallah misjudged the Israelis last year.
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration launched several programs meant to test the U.S. military's capabilities in any war against Teheran.

Officials said the programs were meant to defend the Gulf and destroy Iran's underground nuclear weapons bunkers.

"When the president said he has not taken the military option off the table, he means that there must also be a viable military option," an official said.

In one project, the U.S. Air Force intends to integrate a new 30,000-pound bomb that could destroy deeply-buried military targets in Iran.

Under the $2.5 million program, the new Massive Ordnance Penetrator, developed by Boeing, would be integrated on the B-2 stealth bomber. MOP was described as a GPS-guided weapon that contains more than 5,300 pounds of conventional explosives inside a 20.5-foot long enclosure of hardened steel.

The U.S. Navy has overseen a project to overcome Iran's swarm strategy, which involves the use of up to 100 speedboats to attack and destroy U.S. aircraft carriers and destroyers in the Gulf. Based on persistent 360 degree surveillance and command and control, Lockheed Martin has sought to establish a five-mile defensive perimeter for any U.S. Navy vessel.

INFIDEL OF THE WEEK: RICH IS THE MAN!


In a moment of candor, I would like to admit that I am a member of a large clandestine organization (which helps to fund me, and sets my agenda). It is called:

Big Tobacco, Wal-Mart Apologizing, Global Warming-Supporters, Who Are Doing It All To Kill Innocent Iraqis.

Special Agent Rich sent me the following transmission, just minutes ago:




I just finished a one-man protest against a bunch of liberals here in -----, PA.


About 20 dhimmis come every saturday and hold Anti-War and Impeach Bush signs - they "own" the busiest intersection in our small city. No one challenges them.

But this Saturday, they were not alone....

I was there with a giant sign that said: "WARNING! LEFTISTS TRYING TO DEMORALIZE OUR TROOPS" on the other side it said: "HONK FOR VICTORY" (with an American flag stapled on it)

(oh, and I wore a t-shirt that said "NO JIHAD IN OUR BACKYARD" on the back)

And the libtards were furious - they got in my face, called me sick, asked me if I ever saw someone killed... (I said, "Yeah, on 9/11")

My little counter protest really shook them, they tried to block my sign but I kept moving in to the front - AND I got A LOT of support and thumbs up from passersby (this is the busiest intersection in our small city).

Hopefully I get others to join me every now and then. Let the dhimmis know that not every one in ---- agrees with them.

Also, I wrote a comment on Atlas' site regarding the Muslim Parade tomorrow and I thought I'd put it here in case it inspires anyone to join us.

I do hope anyone within driving distance will be there.

I'm bringing 2 friends and will be proud to stand with and support Joe Kaufman, and I know ----- (from BTWA) will be there. Hope to see you there!

This protest against the Parade in Manhattan is the place to be! Especially at this point in time.

The radical Muslims are using our freedoms against us, to destroy us from within.

It's a disgrace that this Islamist "parade" is even being allowed. And in New York City RIGHT BEFORE 9/11! of all places...

It shows their arrogance and how the Fifth Column has emboldened them.

IMHO they are using this parade to celebrate 9/11. It's the opposite
way of how the anniversary of the worst attack on American soil should be remembered.

When was the last time a "moderate" Muslim spoke to any reader about
how they hope and pray that our troops will be victorious over the jihadists?

When was the last time we read about moderate Muslims turning in the terrorists in their mosques or in their universities or workplace?

This "parade" is just another way for Islamists to recruit more radicals. It encourages them to join sleeper cells inside the United States or becomefreelance jihadists.

Many of the paraders have direct links to terror organizations, many have websites that are used to recruit and incite and indoctrinate more radicals.

Do you ever wonder how many of these radical muslims are registered
democrat and how many are registered republican?

Political Correctness will be our undoing. The NYC officials that allowed this parade to take place should be arrested.

WE MUST send the Jihadists a message that we are on to them. That we know what their intentions are, to make Islam the dominant religion in America and Sharia our government.

We must let them know that even though a few officials are afraid to tell them "NO PARADE FOR RADICALS!" - WE are NOT afraid to look them in the eye and let them know their celebration parade IS NOT WELCOME on OUR STREETS!

They've been allowed to flaunt their undermining of our efforts to find the radicals in our faces for too long and this parade of muslim radicals in our streets should not be allowed.

Thanks to Joe Kaufman and his Americans Against Hate group for organizing this event. It gives us a chance to fight back and let the Jihad sympathizers know that not =all Americans are sleeping.

Thanks in advance to all who will be there to stand together and say "I WILL NOT SUBMIT".


Some of us will push ourselves away from the TV's and football and let them know that they should not be allowed to have terrorists and sympathizers parade in Manhattan.

Let them know that we see through them, we see through their
disception, their TAQIYYA, and we know what they conceal inside. We
know they smile on the outside, but what's really in their hearts is
to destroy America....

We do this as a way of standing in SOLIDARITY with our brave
troops who fight to save the world from Islamic domination.

We do this to let the troops know that they ARE NOT alone in this fight.

We do this because WE ARE ALL PASSENGERS ON FLIGHT 93 - we are all in
this together. Soldiers in the field and civilian soldiers in our streets.

We want to keep America FREE. We cannot continue to allow
Islam to creep closer to their goals of world domination, death, or
submission.

We are in the fight of our lives.

The surge is working in Iraq! Let start a surge in Manhattan.

For the TROOPS! For our Children! For Freedom!

Storm Track Appeasement: Elections Canada Folds Under Sharia Law

The 'faceless voting' position of the dhimmis at the Elections Canada has undermined electoral integrity and equality before the ballot box. The new policy of Elections Canada allows Muslim women to wear identity-concealing face veils, including full burqas, when voting in upcoming federal by-elections in Quebec and Ontario.

It’s something like this that validates Michael Savage’s opinion that Liberalism is a mental disorder.

Canada’s federal elections’ regulator says Muslim women can “vote veiled” merely by identifying themselves with a driver’s license and second piece of identification. As an alternative, “covered” women need only swear an oath and have another voter vouch for them.

Yep. You read that right.

"IT'S A LOT HARDER THAN IT IS BACK HOME"

Check it out. Here's a video of a Muslima who seems to be conflicted about her subservient role.

What are you gonna say?





She is not some wild-eyed crazy stranger. This is a normal human being. Notice she refers to the Muslim world as "back home."

She is the friendly person among the radicals, my peeps.

If things proceed as Iran insist, can Syria be left outs?

Iran's IRGC gets new base in Syria within missile range of Western targets

GERTZ-Syria has granted Iran's elite military force a base near the Lebanese border for the deployment of intermediate-range missiles meant to strike U.S. and Western targets.

Syrian opposition sources said the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps has been given the keys to a new base near Homs in western Syria. They said the base was located less than 50 kilometers from Lebanon and was being used for training as well as the deployment of the Shihab-3 missile, with a range of at least 2,000 kilometers.

The Washington-based Reform Party of Syria said IRGC has complete control of the Syrian military base. RPS said there was no Syrian presence detected in the facility.

"There is no Syrian presence at the base, which makes it a fully operational foreign base and the first of its kind in the country," RPS, based on intelligence reports from Syria, said.

Nothing interesting here

I mean it's not like via the IRGC and cat's paw Hizballah Iran is not making a play for both Syria and Lebanon. There also seem to be this nation in between Iran and Syria

I always thought the optometrist was at base a moron.

Now, let's imagine you are america's only ally in the region and you are watching the debate in the USA over Viet..., whoops, excuse me, Iraq.
Imagine that your intelligence, which has never been terrible, tells you unequivocally that in 18 month at the latest Iran will have a nuclear weapon, but it will be difficult ot deliver (FROM IRAN) and you are watching the IRGC co-opt Syria, watching mullahs pay money for converts to Shiism there, watching Hizballah control AT A MINIMUM that area of Lebanon abutting your border

What would you do?

The only question is where to start.

And when.

Imagine you are the hereditary leader of a small, resourceless kingdom, and you are watching the debate in the USA over Viet..., whoops, excuse me, Iraq. Imagine your intelligence is telling you that the overwhelming popular sentiment in the USA is to get out of Dodge. Imagine that history tells you the americans did nothing to Iran from 1979 until the present day no matter what provocations, or attacks occurred.

What policy would you follow?

Now insert that into the the leadership of the UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Pakistan ... am I coming through?

It would be critical to NOT NEED THE OIL.

However today it is a vital national interest.

Vital.

"Radical changes" announced to EU policy...

about EU neighbours:

Addressing a conference that included ministers from the 16 neighbour countries and the 27 EU members, European Commission Vice President Benita Ferrero-Waldner said the Commission proposes to open up the European markets to workers, services and goods from the EU’s neighbours.

The invasion will be totally achieved if this is accepted. Even if they claim they will support "better legal immigration", considering these past years surge in illegal immigration and the lack of measures to control it, I just don't like this. Don't like this at all.

Shed Blood

Times via Instapundit:

Almost half of Britain’s mosques are under the control of a hardline Islamic sect whose leading preacher loathes Western values and has called on Muslims to “shed blood” for Allah, an investigation by The Times has found.

I'm shocked! And here I thought those dang cartoons were turning them into bloodthirsty monsters.

Riyadh ul Haq, who supports armed jihad and preaches contempt for Jews, Christians and Hindus, is in line to become the spiritual leader of the Deobandi sect in Britain. The ultra-conservative movement, which gave birth to the Taleban in Afghanistan, now runs more than 600 of Britain’s 1,350 mosques, according to a police report seen by The Times.

Oh, it's just a small, tiny, minuscule minority. Nothing to worry about.

Mr ul Haq, 36, was educated and trained at an Islamic seminary in Britain and is part of a new generation of British imams who share a similar radical agenda. He heaps scorn on any Muslims who say they are “proud to be British” and argues that friendship with a Jew or a Christian makes “a mockery of Allah’s religion”.

Reality makes a mockery of Allah's religion.

The Times has gained access to numerous talks and sermons delivered in recent years by Mr ul Haq and other graduates of Britain’s most influential Deobandi seminary near Bury, Greater Manchester.

Intended for a Muslim-only audience, they reveal a deep-rooted hatred of Western society, admiration for the Taleban and a passionate zeal for martyrdom “in the way of Allah”.

It gets even better.

The seminary outlaws art, television, music and chess, demands “entire concealment” for women and views football as “a cancer that has infected our youth”.

I blame Bush! And of course, the sure-fire way to gain street-cred among the umma: go after the Jews.

Mahmood Chandia, a Bury graduate who is now a university lecturer, claims in one sermon that music is a way in which Jews spread “the Satanic web” to corrupt young Muslims.

What will those crazy Jews think of next?

UK: HALF THE MOSQUES, MOST OF THE LIBRARIES ...


... are preaching the hatred of Islamofascism. I wonder what we would find here in America, if only we would have the courage to turn over the rock?

We owe the new Centre for Social Cohesion a debt of gratitude for exposing the
disgusting willingness of British public libraries to stock Jew-baiting Islamic
hate literature.

It's getting harder to tell the militants from the moderates

For years, politically correct local government has collaborated with Islamofascists in the creation of Muslim ghettos in northern cities, and in allowing colleges of further education to circulate anti-Semitic propaganda.

Tower Hamlets used to be a stronghold of the BNP. Now its libraries promote a different – and even more dangerous – form of fascism, as revealed in the report “Hate on the State”, by the Centre for Social Cohesion’s senior fellow James Brandon and its director, Douglas Murray.

I know and admire Douglas. He is emerging as an important public intellectual, and he’s still in his 20s. But his youthfulness shouldn’t surprise us. It is people of
his generation who recognise the major threat to social cohesion in this
country: Islam.

I know I should say “militant” Islam, but to be honest I’m finding it increasingly difficult to tell the difference between the militants and the moderates.

Anyway, next time a suicide murderer blows himself up, at least the police will know what clue to look for: a Tower Hamlets library card.

The Symptoms Are Perceived As The Disease

Switzerland is reacting normally to Islamofascism, but it is being blamed for "hatred":


Switzerland: Europe's heart of darkness?

Switzerland is known as a haven of peace and neutrality. But today it is home to a new extremism that has alarmed the United Nations. Proposals for draconian new laws that target the country's immigrants have been condemned as unjust and racist. A poster campaign, the work of its leading political party, is decried as xenophobic. Has Switzerland become Europe's heart of darkness? By Paul Vallely

Published: 07 September 2007

At first sight, the poster looks like an innocent children's cartoon. Three white sheep stand beside a black sheep. The drawing makes it looks as though the animals are smiling. But then you notice that the three white beasts are standing on the Swiss flag. One of the white sheep is kicking the black one off the flag, with a crafty flick of its back legs.

The poster is, according to the United Nations, the sinister symbol of the rise of a new racism and xenophobia in the heart of one of the world's oldest independent democracies.

A worrying new extremism is on the rise. For the poster – which bears the slogan "For More Security" – is not the work of a fringe neo-Nazi group. It has been conceived – and plastered on to billboards, into newspapers and posted to every home in a direct mailshot – by the Swiss People's Party (the Schweizerische Volkspartei or SVP) which has the largest number of seats in the Swiss parliament and is a member of the country's coalition government.

With a general election due next month, it has launched a twofold campaign which has caused the UN's special rapporteur on racism to ask for an official explanation from the government. The party has launched a campaign to raise the 100,000 signatures necessary to force a referendum to reintroduce into the penal code a measure to allow judges to deport foreigners who commit serious crimes once they have served their jail sentence.

But far more dramatically, it has announced its intention to lay before parliament a law allowing the entire family of a criminal under the age of 18 to be deported as soon as sentence is passed.

It will be the first such law in Europe since the Nazi practice of Sippenhaft – kin liability – whereby relatives of criminals were held responsible for their crimes and punished equally.

The proposal will be a test case not just for Switzerland but for the whole of Europe, where a division between liberal multiculturalism and a conservative isolationism is opening up in political discourse in many countries, the UK included.


SWISS TRAINS being the acme of punctuality, the appointment was very precise. I was to meet Dr Ulrich Schlüer – one of the men behind the draconian proposal – in the restaurant at the main railway station in Zürich at 7.10pm. As I made my way through the concourse, I wondered what Dr Schlüer made of this station of hyper-efficiency and cleanliness that has a smiling Somali girl selling pickled herring sandwiches, a north African man sweeping the floor, and a black nanny speaking in broken English to her young Swiss charge. The Swiss People's Party's attitude to foreigners is, shall we say, ambivalent.

A quarter of Switzerland's workers – one in four, like the black sheep in the poster – are now foreign immigrants to this peaceful, prosperous and stable economy with low unemployment and a per capita GDP larger than that of other Western economies. Zürich has, for the past two years, been named as the city with the best quality of life in the world.

What did the nanny think of the sheep poster, I asked her. "I'm a guest in this country," she replied. "It's best I don't say."

Dr Schlüer is a small affable man. But if he speaks softly he wields a big stick. The statistics are clear, he said, foreigners are four times more likely to commit crimes than Swiss nationals. "In a suburb of Zürich, a group of youths between 14 and 18 recently raped a 13-year-old girl," he said. "It turned out that all of them were already under investigation for some previous offence. They were all foreigners from the Balkans or Turkey. Their parents said these boys are out of control. We say: 'That's not acceptable. It's your job to control them and if you can't do that you'll have to leave'. It's a punishment everyone understands."

It is far from the party's only controversial idea. Dr Schlüer has launched a campaign for a referendum to ban the building of Muslim minarets. In 2004, the party successfully campaigned for tighter immigration laws using the image of black hands reaching into a pot filled with Swiss passports. And its leading figure, the Justice Minister, Christoph Blocher, has said he wants to soften anti-racism laws because they prevent freedom of speech.

Political opponents say it is all posturing ahead of next month's general election. Though deportation has been dropped from the penal code, it is still in force in administrative law, says Daniel Jositsch, professor of penal law at Zurich University. "At the end of the day, nothing has changed, the criminal is still at the airport and on the plane."

With astute tactics, the SVP referendum restricts itself to symbolic restitution. Its plan to deport entire families has been put forward in parliament where it has little chance of being passed. Still the publicity dividend is the same. And it is all so worrying to human rights campaigners that the UN special rapporteur on racism, Doudou Diène, warned earlier this year that a "racist and xenophobic dynamic" which used to be the province of the far right is now becoming a regular part of the democratic system in Switzerland.

Dr Schlüer shrugged. "He's from Senegal where they have a lot of problems of their own which need to be solved. I don't know why he comes here instead of getting on with that."

Such remarks only confirm the opinions of his opponents. Mario Fehr is a Social Democrat MP for the Zürich area. He says: "Deporting people who have committed no crime is not just unjust and inhumane, it's stupid. Three quarters of the Swiss people think that foreigners who work here are helping the economy. We have a lot of qualified workers – IT specialists, doctors, dentists." To get rid of foreigners, which opponents suspect is the SVP's real agenda, "would be an economic disaster".

Dr Schlüer insists the SVP is not against all foreigners. "Until war broke out in the Balkans, we had some good workers who came from Yugoslavia. But after the fighting there was huge influx of people we had a lot of problems with. The abuse of social security is a key problem. It's estimated to cost £750m a year. More than 50 per cent of it is by foreigners."

There is no disguising his suspicion of Islam. He has alarmed many of Switzerland's Muslims (some 4.3 per cent of the 7.5 million population) with his campaign to ban the minaret. "We're not against mosques but the minaret is not mentioned in the Koran or other important Islamic texts. It just symbolises a place where Islamic law is established." And Islamic law, he says, is incompatible with Switzerland's legal system.

To date there are only two mosques in the country with minarets but planners are turning down applications for more, after opinion polls showed almost half the population favours a ban. What is at stake here in Switzerland is not merely a dislike of foreigners or a distrust of Islam but something far more fundamental. It is a clash that goes to the heart of an identity crisis which is there throughout Europe and the US. It is about how we live in a world that has changed radically since the end of the Cold War with the growth of a globalised economy, increased immigration flows, the rise of Islam as an international force and the terrorism of 9/11. Switzerland only illustrates it more graphically than elsewhere.

Switzerland is so stark an example because of the complex web of influences that find their expression in Ulrich Schlüer and his party colleagues.

He is fiercely proud of his nation's independence, which can be traced back to a defensive alliance of cantons in 1291. He is a staunch defender of its policy of armed neutrality, under which Switzerland has no standing army but all young men are trained and on standby; they call it the porcupine approach – with millions of individuals ready to stiffen like spines if the nation is threatened.

Linked to that is its system of direct democracy where many key decisions on tax, education, health and other key areas are taken at local level.

"How direct democracy functions is a very sensitive issue in Switzerland," he says, explaining why he has long opposed joining the EU. "To the average German, the transfer of power from Berlin to Brussels didn't really affect their daily lives. The transfer of power from the commune to Brussels would seriously change things for the ordinary Swiss citizen."

Switzerland has the toughest naturalisation rules in Europe. To apply, you must live in the country legally for at least 12 years, pay taxes, and have no criminal record. The application can still be turned down by your local commune which meets to ask "Can you speak German? Do you work? Are you integrated with Swiss people?"

It can also ask, as one commune did of 23-year-old Fatma Karademir – who was born in Switzerland but who under Swiss law is Turkish like her parents – if she knew the words of the Swiss national anthem, if she could imagine marrying a Swiss boy and who she would support if the Swiss football team played Turkey. "Those kinds of questions are outside the law," says Mario Fehr. "But in some more remote villages you have a problem if you're from ex-Yugoslavia."

The federal government in Berne wants to take the decision out of the hands of local communities, one of which only gave the vote to women as recently as 1990. But the government's proposals have twice been defeated in referendums.

The big unspoken fact here is how a citizen is to be defined. "When a Swiss woman who has emigrated to Canada has a baby, that child automatically gets citizenship," Dr Schlüer says. But in what sense is a boy born in Canada, who may be brought up with an entirely different world view and set of values, more Swiss than someone like Fatma Karademir who has never lived anywhere but Switzerland?

The truth is that at the heart of the Swiss People's Party's vision is a visceral notion of kinship, breeding and blood that liberals would like to think sits very much at odds with the received wisdom of most of the Western world. It is what lies behind the SVP's fear of even moderate Islam. It has warned that because of their higher birth rates Muslims would eventually become a majority in Switzerland if the citizenship rules were eased. It is what lies behind his fierce support for the militia system.

To those who say that Germany, France, Italy and Austria are nowadays unlikely to invade, he invokes again the shadow of militant Islam. "The character of war is changing. There could be riots or eruptions in a town anywhere in Switzerland. There could be terrorism in a financial centre."

The race issue goes wider than politics in a tiny nation. "I'm broadly optimistic that the tide is moving in our direction both here and in other countries across Europe, said Dr Schlüer. "I feel more supported than criticised from outside."

The drama which is being played out in such direct politically incorrect language in Switzerland is one which has repercussions all across Europe, and wider.

Neutrality and nationality

* Switzerland has four national languages – German, Italian, French and Romansh. Most Swiss residents speak German as their first language.

* Switzerland's population has grown from 1.7 million in 1815 to 7.5 million in 2006. The population has risen by 750,000 since 1990.

* Swiss nationality law demands that candidates for Swiss naturalisation spend a minimum of years of permanent, legal residence in Switzerland, and gain fluency in one of the national languages.

* More than 20 per cent of the Swiss population, and 25 per cent of its workforce, is non-naturalised.

* At the end of 2006, 5,888 people were interned in Swiss prisons. 31 per cent were Swiss citizens – 69 per cent were foreigners or asylum-seekers.

* The number of unauthorised migrant workers currently employed is estimated at 100,000.



Speaking as a white man, who is married to a brown-skinned woman, who is regularly accused of being a "hater" a "Nazi" and a "racist", I must admit, I find this funny.

Switzerland, the land who has set "neutrality" as the goal which must, above all others, be achieved, Switzerlan, the land who has cut the cheese to nth degree, until there is no more cheese to be cut, is being accused of racial bias. Such are the permutations of postmodern political correctness.

LOL!

Those god damned racist Swiss.

I always did hate that friggin' Ingmar Bergman.

Winds of War: Many Americans Agree to Islamist Threat – BUT…

A recent poll by conducted by Public Opinion Strategies for the Program to Protect America's Freedom at the Ethics and Public Policy Center 800 registered voters sheds some light on American’s perception of who the enemy is and how they should be confronted. The results are telling.

First the key statistics.
Ø Two-thirds of Americans agree that this is the most dangerous time that our country has ever lived through.
Ø A plurality of Americans believes that the threat from Islamic Fundamentalism poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than either Soviet Communism in the 1960s or Nazism in the late 1930s.
Ø Nearly 60% believe the next generation of Americans will be less safe from foreign threats than we are now.
Ø Al Qaeda, Iran, and Islamic fundamentalist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah are considered by Americans to pose the most imminent threat to the security of the United States, both currently and over the next twenty years.
Ø Nearly 60% believe "The Iraq War is a key part of the global war on terrorism."

OK. Agreed there is a threat. Naturally, the next question is how it should be confronted. This is where it gets interesting.

A letter from a friend deployed to Iraq: On the progress, the surge and the Democrats

The so-called "experts" who know only what they are being fed by the Democrats and CNN are off the mark, again. They want to discredit GEN "P" before he reveals his report.

Let me say this clearly, as someone who is here and has been before the surge, THE SURGE IS WORKING!

I have seen what Baghdad was like before and, as I prepare to leave the country, I have seen what it's like after it has reached full capacity. Before the surge, people didn't go into the streets, markets were scarce, children didn't play outside, the residents were scared to cross sectarian boundaries. Now, Sunnis and Shiites are working together to rid themselves of the insurgents and the militias who have plagued their communities. I know for a FACT that the Sunni council chairman of our local community rode in the same car as his Shiite counterpart into a Shiite controlled area to meet sheiks of both Sunni and Shiite families to broker their own peace and commit to ending the violence on this side of Baghdad.

Before the surge, this was IMPOSSIBLE. No one wants to tell you people this because it's more important to bash the Bush administration that to reveal the truth.

Pelosi and Reid can kiss my ass. They have NO CLUE what is going on here. Nor do they care. It's more important to push the Democrat agenda than to show the progress that we are making.

Every time I think I should try to get back in, they push me away

The only democrat I agree with on national security was thrown from his political home by Soros-Moveon and the craven cowards like Reid who can't wait to bend over for them..and now

Nothing could more clearly show the accepted, underlying, unquestioned theory which powers the domestic policymaking of the democratic party today than John Edwards' national health plan:

It requires that everybody get preventive care. If you are going to be in the system, you can’t choose not to go to the doctor for twenty years. You have to go in and be checked and make sure that you are OK.

Do we all understand what is assumed by this banal evil in order to do good?

And one day, all that is not compulsory will be illegal. After all, they know best.

I won't name the systems which espouse such ideals, it's too ironic even for me. It's too much of a hanging curve ball.

By the way can you imagine the new power morons counting Dr. visits to ensure you are going? What kind of people would be self guided to such positions? Can you imagine the penalties if you don't go? Who will establish the penalties for this federal spaghetti bowl of impossible routes to health? NOT CONGRESS...who?

Your attitude has been noticed ! No surgery for you !

What democrat can I possibly vote for? WHO ARE THESE PEOPLE?

The Blessed Invasion Of Manhattan.

UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST.

I don't have enough time for posts tonight, but, apropos the post below in which I talked about a multinational attack, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES, this one has to be acknowledged. So, let me tell you it is from Little Green Footballs.

Take it away, Charles:


Check out the Jawa Report on a terror-supporting web site they helped bust: Wordpress Hosted Terror Site: Soon, The Blessed Invasion of Manhattan.


Those who make their lives in Manhattan might want to avoid the city next Tuesday.

But wtf do I know? You have been fairly warned. I'm an idiot, and everyone knows it.

UPDATED:

Reliapundit reminds us that Ramadan begins on Sept. 13th this year. To tell the truth, I had no idea.

Next 72 Hours: Bin Laden Plans A Video For 9/11

As I said earlier today, the arrests of active terrorist cells in Germany, Denmark, and Norway are all part of a ramp up to 9/11. I said that believe that Al Qaeda is planning another 9/11 for next Tuesday, and it looks like I am right:


CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - Terror mastermind Osama bin Laden plans a new video addressing the American people regarding the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, terror monitoring groups said Thursday.

SITE Intelligence Group said an Internet announcement of the plan included a photo of the al-Qaida leader from the upcoming video—his beard, which in previous messages had been streaked with gray, was entirely dark.

Intelcenter, which is based in Alexandria, Va., and also monitors Islamic Web sites, said the video was expected within the next 72 hours, or by Sunday. That would come before the sixth anniversary next Tuesday of the World Trade Center attack. The last bin Laden video was in October 2004, shortly before the U.S. presidential elections.

Rita Katz, director of the Washington-based SITE Institute, said bin Laden's beard appeared to have been dyed, which she said is a popular practice in the Middle East.

"I think it works for their benefit that he looks young, he looks healthy," Katz said of the new image.

Thousands of young Waziris and Mehsud tribal youths happily accepted the command of al-Qaeda leaders

The United States and its allies cannot allow to exist a haven behind national borders as if this war was between the nation states of the 18th century, unless, of course we have decided losing is without danger.

ASIA TIMES:KARACHI - Once again, fingers are being pointed at Pakistan over terror suspects being trained in the country. Men linked to the July 7, 2005, attacks on the London transport system, and others in separate incidents, have been said to have ties to Pakistan, and on Wednesday German prosecutors stated that three men they had arrested on suspicion of planning "massive" attacks in the country had trained at camps in Pakistan.

Two of the men are German nationals who have convertedwhile the third is Turkish. German officials said they belonged to a cell of the Sunni Islamic Jihad Union, an al-Qaeda-linked group that is believed to be an offshoot of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which was active in Afghanistan. Its leader, Tahir Yuldashev, is based in Pakistan.

It is entirely possible that the men trained in Pakistan, in which case their teacher would have been al-Qaeda commander Abu Hanifah, who has a base in the town of Mir Ali in the North Waziristan tribal area.

For the record, the Pushtu and their allied tribes are the enemies of the people of the United States and ALL WE HAVE EVER STOOD FOR.

Kucinich, Syria, and REFUGEES - the height of my disgust with my own party

US Democratic hopeful Kucinich meets Assad, blasts Bush

US Democratic presidential hopeful Dennis Kucinich, on a Mideast visit that included a stop in Syria, said the country lambasted by the Bush administration deserves credit for taking in more than a million Iraqi refugees

Kucinich, a strong anti-war opponent who trails far in the US presidential polls, also said he won't visit Iraq on his trip to the region because he considers the US military deployment there illegal.

I feel the United States is engaging in an illegal occupation ... I don't want to bless that occupation with my presence," he said in an interview in Lebanon, after visiting Syria. "I will not do it."

Kucinich, who accused the Bush administration of policies that have destabilized the Mideast, met with Syrian President Bashar Assad during his visit to Damascus. He said Assad was receptive to his ideas of "strength through peace."

He also praised Syria for taking in Iraqi refugees.

"What most people are not aware of is that Syria has taken in more than 1.5 million Iraqi refugees," Kucinich said. "The Syrian government has actually shown a lot of compassion in keeping its doors open, and being a host for so many refugees."

Kucinich said he would ask UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to follow up on the "dire conditions" in southern Lebanon, especially Israeli cluster bombs leftover from the war that have killed more than 30 and injured at least 200 since the fighting's end.

"There has to be a commitment to cleaning up these cluster bombs," Kucinich said.

What do you think Harry Truman and Franklin Roosevelt are thinking right now?

This man who goes to Syria to sympathize with genocidal murderers, who also help kill americans, is there to criticize the USA for selfish partisan reasons.

Dennis Kucinich is running for president of the United States.

He has no dignity, and less honor.

Storm Track Disinformation: Are Muslims the Biggest Threat to Western Civilization? Uh! Uh!

The liberal mind can’t seem to prioritize reality. Their attempts at seeing everything as being relative prevents them from seeing one threat being worse than another. It explains why to liberals, global warming, free healthcare, and poverty are equal or worse than the threat from Islamo-fascism.

So what IS the greatest threat to Western Civilization according to one blogger?

The concern on the right about the Muslim threat to Europe, overlooks the inconvenient truth that in the UK out-of-control youths - most of them white and ‘Christian’ - are responsible for a lot of the vandalism and violence. The threat to ‘civilization’ isn’t coming from Muslims of Asian origin. It’s coming in part from a resurgence of British yob culture, fueled to some degree by xenophobic nationalism. It would be pushing it to overplay the link between yob culture and the far right. Many of these kids are just acting out for the sheer hell of it - but a percentage are racist and anti-immigrant.

So, he sees the growing response to the Islamafication of Europe by ‘Christian’ thugs as a threat to the very civilization they wish to defend. Now, I’m not defending thuggery by any group but when the leadership of a country continues to ignore attempts by Islamists to impose Islamic law upon non-Islamic countries and allow the slow erosion of Western values and culture by committing national suicide, there will be groups of people who will one day take matters into their own hands.

BREAKING: Haditha Video Doctored by Investigators

I wouldn't be surprised a bit if the likes of Murtha are behind it. This matter must be investigated and all involved prosecuted.
(MewsMax) A video taped from a Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle – purported to show the action that took place in Haditha when 24 Iraqi civilians and insurgents were killed – was heavily edited by government investigators, a NewsMax investigation reveals.

The reason, according to an inside source: to avoid showing anything that exonerates the Marines who were accused of murdering the victims.

Syria Fires At Israeli Aircraft

Hmm:


Syrian air defenses opened fire on IAF aircraft that violated Syrian airspace overnight Thursday, a Syrian military spokesman said.

"We warn the Israeli enemy government against this flagrant aggressive act, and retain the right to respond in an appropriate way," the Syrian spokesman said.

Syrian officials reported that four or five IAF aircraft broke the sound barrier and dropped fuel tanks over deserted areas of northern Syria, along its border with Turkey.

It was not clear if Syria was accusing the Israelis of using warplanes or some type of other aircraft like drones.

"The Israeli enemy aircraft infiltrated into the Arab Syrian territory through the northern border, coming from the Mediterranean heading toward the eastern region, breaking the sound barrier," the spokesman said.

"Air defense units confronted them and forced them to leave after they dropped some ammunition in deserted areas without causing any human or material damage," he added.

The IDF said that it was "not accustomed to responding to such reports."

Syrian Cabinet Minister Buthaina Shaaban, speaking on Al-Jazeera television's English service, would not confirm that Israel had attacked Syria, but did say the aircraft violated the country's airspace.

"We are a sovereign country. They cannot do that," said Shaaban.

The Syrian military spokesman did not specify whether the military used surface-to-air missiles or anti-aircraft artillery when confronting the aircraft.

"We warn the Israeli enemy government against this flagrant aggressive act, and retain the right to respond in an appropriate way," the Syrian spokesman said, speaking on customary condition of anonymity.

Syrian Information Minister Mohsen Bilal said the government was "seriously studying the nature of the response," but refused to indicate in an interview with Al-Jazeera whether the reaction would be on the military or diplomatic level. He would not give any more details about the incident, but said it proved Israel's policies are based on hostility.

"Israel in fact does not want peace," said Bilal. "It cannot survive without aggression, treachery and military messages."

He said recent US aid of $30 billion over 10 years to Israel encouraged its government to "such arrogance that it delivered this morning message."

Israel acknowledges flying over Lebanon routinely, but it is unclear how often its aircraft fly over Syria, if at all.

Syrian officials, including President Bashar Assad, have repeatedly warned Israel in recent weeks that the occupation of the Golan Heights "cannot last forever."

Concerns grew over the summer that tensions along the frontier could escalate into conflict, but both Syrian and Israeli officials publicly and repeatedly said they had no interest in war.

Thursday's incident could stoke the tensions again, however. Late last month, Israeli security officials said the army had determined that war with Syria, whose military had reduced its war readiness, was unlikely and Israel began rotating forces out of the Israeli-held Golan Heights.

Syria also is believed unhappy that other Arab countries are headed to a peace meeting in November at which the United States hopes for a high-profile meeting between the Palestinians and Israelis, and perhaps also with Saudi officials.

Syria has long disputed any notion that a comprehensive Arab peace deal can be reached unless it also involves some resolution of the Golan Heights, which it wants back in full.

At the beginning of last summer's war against Lebanon, Israeli warplanes buzzed the palace of Syrian President Bashar Assad in what analysts called a warning to Damascus.

In June of the same year, they also flew over Assad's summer home in the coastal city of Latakia, after Syrian-backed Palestinian combatants in Gaza kidnapped IDF soldier Cpl. Gilad Schalit.

Germany Hunts Al Qaeda Cells

In the past two days, we have the arrests of active terror cells in Norway, Denmark, and Germany. The suspects in Germany had an attack planned which officials called "massive" and "imminent."

It looks like Al Qaeda has something big planned, a multinational attack, here in the days leading up to the sixth anniversary of Sept. 11th.

This Sept. 11th is the first 9/11 since 2001 when the fateful date falls again on a Tuesday. It would seem that this means something to Al Qaeda, and they hope to repeat it.

In other words, I believe it is likely they have something planned for us for next Tuesday.


And today comes word that Germany is searching for ten more suspects:


Germany searching for 10 terror suspects
By MELISSA EDDY, Associated Press Writer 42 minutes ago

German authorities were searching Thursday for about 10 suspected supporters of an Islamic group linked to al-Qaida believed to have assisted three militants arrested for plotting imminent attacks against Americans in Germany, an official said.

Authorities believed "some 10" further suspects provided support to the two German converts and a Turkish citizen who were arrested Tuesday, August Hanning, a top security official, told the ARD broadcaster.

"This is the network that we are aware of at the moment," Hanning said, adding that authorities believe the splintered cell — which includes more converted Germans, Turks and other citizens — no longer poses a direct security threat.

The three arrested suspects had military-style detonators and enough material to make bombs more powerful than those that killed 191 people in Madrid in 2004 and 52 commuters in London two years ago, prosecutors said Wednesday.

"We were able to succeed in recognizing and preventing the most serious and massive bombings," German Federal Prosecutor Monika Harms said at a news conference Wednesday. She declined to name specific targets.

In Washington, a senior U.S. State Department official said German investigators had determined the Frankfurt International Airport and the nearby U.S. Ramstein Air Base were the primary targets of the plot, but that those arrested may have also been considering strikes on other sites, particularly facilities associated with the U.S.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity to describe discussions between U.S. and German intelligence agencies.

Germany's announcement was the second in two days that a major attack had been foiled in Europe, after Danish authorities arrested eight alleged Islamic militants with links to senior al-Qaida terrorists.

The German raids were launched after an intense, six-month investigation by 300 officers, who followed the suspects so closely that, at one point, police stealthily substituted a harmless alternate for the raw bomb material the suspects had collected, according to prosecutors.

German and U.S. officials have been increasingly on edge after Islamist attacks on German troops in Afghanistan, fearing an attack at home, and security measures had been increased.

Germany's elite GSG-9 anti-terrorist unit arrested two of the suspects Tuesday at a vacation home in Oberschledorn, a town of some 900 people in central Germany. A third suspect fled through a bathroom window, but was caught about 300 yards away, authorities said.

The suspects were brought before a judge in closed-door sessions Wednesday at the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe, and were ordered held pending trial.

Prosecutors said the three — whom they identified only as Fritz Martin G., 28, Adem Y., 28, and Daniel Martin S., 21 — had first come to the attention of law enforcement when one or more of them carried out surveillance of U.S. military facilities in Hanau, near Frankfurt, in late 2006.

Over the course of the next six months, authorities observed them gathering a dozen containers of 35 percent hydrogen peroxide solution, which officials said can easily be combined with other material to make explosives.

Police decided to move in when the suspects began moving some of the containers and acquiring other equipment used to make bombs.

Prosecutors said the three had undergone training at camps in Pakistan run by the Islamic Jihad Union, and had formed a German cell of the al-Qaida-influenced group.

They described the Islamic Jihad Union as a Sunni Muslim group based in Central Asia that was an offshoot of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, an extremist group with origins in that country.

UK's Daily Mail: "New Al Qaeda Plot To Blow Up Planes Smashed"






From the Daily Mail:



Police have smashed a suspected al Qaeda terror cell nursing a "profound hatred
of US citizens" plotting to bomb civilian and military jets.

The force of the planned explosions would have been worse than the train bombings in Madrid and the Tube and bus attacks in London on 7 July, 2005, according to
German security sources. Those attacks killed 191 and 52 people respectively.

Three men aged 22, 28 and 29 have been arrested in Germany days before
they planned to strike, and bomb-making equipment and explosives have been
seized.

The arrests come a day after Danish police conducted raids and
took eight young Muslims into custody whom they suspect of plotting a bomb
attack and having links with al Qaeda. No direct link has yet been established
between the two plots.

Federal prosecutor Monika Harms said the three
suspects had bought 700kg (1,500lbs) of hydrogen peroxide to make massive bombs.
She said: "We have prevented what we believe would have been the worst terror
attacks ever on German soil".

She declined to name specific targets but
said the suspects had an eye on institutions and establishments frequented by
Americans in Germany, including discos, pubs and airports.

Citing
unnamed security sources in Berlin, the broadcaster Suedwestfunk said Frankfurt
International Airport and US Ramstein Air Base were among targets.

Joerg
Ziercke, the head of Germany's federal crime office, said the men had a
"profound hatred of US citizens".

German security sources have
reportedly said the men belonged to the Islamic Jihad, an Egyptain terrorist
group that merged with al Qaeda in 2001.

Wolfgang Bosbach, an MP with
Chancellor Angela Merkel's Christian Democrats, said the plot may have been
timed to coincide with the anniversary of the 2001 atrocities in the US.

Franz Josef Jung, the defence minister, said: "The attacks were planned
for the near future. They presented a real threat to life."

The suspects
are believed to have been planning simultaneous attacks on aircraft sitting on
the ground. Security services had been watching them for six months until
yesterday, when the investigators spontaneously made the arrests after the men
were observed moving chemicals from one storage location to another.

As
is customary in Germany, the suspects have only been identified by their first
names and last initials. Daniel S comes from the Saarland, Fritz G from Ulm in
Bavaria and Adem Y from Turkey, although there are reports that he holds a
Pakistani passport. The two Germans are 22 and 28, while Adem Y is 29.

The men were arrested yesterday as two dozen raids took place across
Germany. They are believed to have been detained in the Frankfurt area.

One of those held, Fritz G, put up a fight when police raided the men's
house in the Frankfurt area. He escaped through a bathroom window and managed to
reach an outer cordon of officers about 300 metres away before being aprehended.
He was able to snatch a gun, which went off, from a policeman. No one was hurt.

A German network reported that shots had been fired when police raided a
house in a town in the western state of North Rhine-Westphalia.

The
Germans are converts to Islam. At least one of the men is reported to have
received terrorist training overseas.

The German intelligence service is
said to have learned of the plot through emails.

The suspects are
reported to have confessed. Security services are trawling their contacts to
make sure there are no back-up teams.

Ramstein serves as America's main
logistical base to service the war in Iraq. Germany has ground troops in
Afghanistan.

"There are clear indications that at a minimum Ramstein and
the Frankfurt airport were possible targets and that they would not have waited
long to strike," leading conservative politician Wolfgang Bosbach told German
television station N24, adding the attacks could have been timed to coincide
with the anniversary of September 11.

Police believe that the men wanted
to experiment in the coming days and weeks with the chemicals and possibly start
building a bomb. They were, however, far away from making a bomb that could be
detonated.

A "bomb factory" is said to have been found in the village of
Oberschledorn in the Sauerland. Locals said undercover police had been watching
the house from a caravan.

Captain Jeff Gradeck, a spokesman for the US
European Command (EUCOM) in Stuttgart, said: "We don't have any information yet
that US facilities were targeted."

There was no comment from Frankfurt
airport, one of Europe's busiest. The Ramstein base in the nearby state of
Rhineland-Palatinate, 130 km (80 miles) southwest of the airport, is one of the
most important US air bases overseas.

Germany, which has forces
stationed in Afghanistan, has been on high alert for attacks. The country has
feared a re-emergence of militant Islamic groups since 2001, when the northern
city of Hamburg was used as a base for planning the September 11 attacks.

Earlier this year, federal prosecutors charged a Lebanese man held in
detention over an unsuccessful attempt to detonate bombs on two trains in
Germany in 2006.

He and another suspect were caught on surveillance
cameras wheeling suitcases containing bombs aboard trains at Cologne's main
railway station.

Both men left suitcases on the trains, which they
planned to detonate later in the day with a timed explosive device. Despite
being activated, the bombs failed to go off because of a technical error, the
prosecutor's office said.

Here's a surprise....

"Look, I know from experience that there's no such thing as a military solution to a situation like this, and no amount of "metrics" can create one"

This is what happens when you turn your back and they all turn into 'jenjis kong'.

John do yourself a favor, go have lunch with dhimmi Carter and both of you concentrate on not embarrassing the democratic party, the nation and your 12 step recovery groups, whatever they may be.

To my knowledge, no one has reported anything officially. Except Katie Couric.

Mohammed Dog Cartoon Creator Speaks Out


Infidel of the Week, Lars Vilk, the artist who drew the cartoon here on the left speaks out and Gates of Vienna has the story.


He says we needed a "hot potato" to spur discussion:



Artist Lars Vilks has spoken out about the controversy surrounding the publication of his picture of Muhammad as a dog in local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda.


Speaking to news agency TT, Vilks said that a provocation was necessary to create a debate.


“We must be free to criticize religions. Why should Islam be exempted from the sort of criticism that is commonplace for Judaism and Christianity?” he said.


Vilks added that “hot potato” was needed to force a proper discussion.


“A lot of people think we should have a nice debate, but when it comes down to it nobody is interested. An initiative of sorts is needed to bring matters to a head,” he said.

China hacking foreign Governments' computers (+)

I know that China is not the first and main objective of this blog, but nevertheless these news are fairly important to let them pass away.

Some weeks ago, German Government informed that the computers of several of their Ministries had been hacked by Chinese Army.

Two days ago, US Pentagon informed that their systems had also being hacked from China.

China denies hacking Pentagon’s computers but there are several worrying things. I copy some paragraphs of the link, you can read it entirely:

Some people make groundless accusations against China” that its military attacked the Pentagon, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu said at a regular news briefing.

China has all along been opposed to and forbids criminal activities undermining computer networks, including hacking,” she said. “China is ready to strengthen cooperation with other countries, including the U.S., in countering Internet crimes.”

The Financial Times report said the Pentagon was still investigating how much information was stolen, but cited an unnamed person as saying that most of it was probably unclassified.

[…] The Pentagon warned earlier this year that China’s army is emphasizing hacking as an offensive weapon. It cited Chinese military exercises in 2005 that included hacking “primarily in first strikes against enemy networks.”

The Associated Press reported in July that the State Department was trying to recover from large-scale network break-ins affecting operations worldwide. The hackers appeared to target the department headquarters and offices dealing with China and North Korea, it was reported.

However, experts have said that China is home to a large number of insecure computers and networks that hackers in other countries could use to disguise their locations and launch attacks.

Well, it’s a good way to disguise an attack from other people, such as terrorists… BUT for China is a golden oportunity: not only they can claim they are innocent, but they can do it and blame others! AND they have been trained for that…

Also UK has complained because the caring and loving and peaceful Taliban are using Chinese-made weapons. This is the most laughable line in all the article: The authorities in Beijing have promised to carry out an investigation. Bet they will say they are sold without permission?

And a reader of my blog, Debbie, has also told me that UK has also complained about Chinese hackers on their computers:

Chinese attackers have launched online assaults against the network at Britain's Parliament and the Foreign Office, The Guardian said, citing unnamed government officials. It added that some of the hackers were believed to be from the Chinese military, without citing sources.

The British government refused to comment on the claim. A spokesperson for the Ministry of Defence referred questions to the Foreign Office, and a spokesperson there said he would not comment on security matters.

Worrying, isn't it?

Winds of War: Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week

During the week of October 22-26, 2007, the nation will be rocked by the biggest conservative campus protest ever – Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, a wake-up call for Americans on 200 university and college campuses.

And the Members of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) are all in a tizzy on what to do. So what else is new? God forbid that we are allowed our freedom of speech.

The goals of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week are to explain who the enemy is - not “terror,” but a fanatical religious movement associated with the Muslim Brotherhood and the sponsors of the Muslim Student Association; it is a movement including al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades -- whose common goal is the creation of a global Muslim empire ruled by an Islamic “pope” or caliphate, to be based in Iraq, once America is defeated.

Here’s the 411 on the event.

Big German Terror Bust

Have you noticed all the terror busts in the past few days? Arrests in Norway. In Denmark.

And now, one in Germany:


FRANKFURT, Sept. 5 — The police in Germany
have arrested three Islamic militants suspected of planning major terrorist
attacks against several sites frequented by Americans, including the busy United
States air base at Ramstein and the Frankfurt international airport.

The suspects — two German citizens and a Turkish resident of Germany — were
in advanced stages of plotting bombing attacks that could have been deadlier
than the terrorist strikes that killed dozens in London and Madrid, police and
security officials said Wednesday.

“They were planning massive attacks,” the German federal prosecutor,
Monika Harms, said at a news conference, outlining a vast six-month
investigation. She said that the suspects had amassed huge amounts of hydrogen
peroxide, the main chemical used to manufacture the explosives used in the
suicide bombings in London in July 2005.

And in the disgrace of the year, right next door to this most radical of radical front groups: the Department of Homeland Security, apparently trying to recruit employees. Notice how “The Shield” is conspicuously placed on the side of the booth facing the DHS exhibit.

Muslim Letter Bomber Arrested In Toronto

Check out this story from the Canada Free Press. At the time of the guys arrest, he appeared, possibly, to be ready to pull off a major car-bombing (thanks to Michael):

From letter bombs to terror cells, much is left unreported


A joint investigation conducted by the Northeast Intelligence Network and Canada Free Press appears to have uncovered a nest of Islamist activity inside the greater Toronto, Ontario, Canada area (GTA) that has its tentacles reaching over the border into the United States and well into other foreign countries. Ms. McLeod, founding editor of Canada Free Press with her many law enforcement sources and many years of investigative journalistic experience, and Mr. Hagmann, director of the Northeast Intelligence Network with his two-and-a-half decades of investigative experience, have ventured far beyond the headlines tempered by political correctness and the limited media disclosure involving the case of Adel Mohamed ARNAOUT, the Toronto "mail bomber" and his place of residence known as the "Bombay Bunker."

Adel Mohamed ARNAOUT, 37, a Muslim immigrant from Lebanon --------------------------------- (redacted - go to original article to see content) was arrested by undercover Toronto Police officers late last Thursday night in a dramatic takedown at a Don Mills ESSO service station in the in Thorncliffe Park Drive -- Overlea area of East York -- about 6 kilometers north of the suspect's residence. ARNAOUT is charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of intending to cause an explosion, one count of criminal harassment and one count of possession of explosive material.

His takedown was reportedly the culmination of police investigation that began in June and encompassed "three letter bombs" sent to three seemingly unrelated victims in Toronto and Guelph, Ontario. According to information obtained exclusively through this joint investigation, the "takedown" was deliberately executed at that time by quick-thinking investigative operatives to avoid a potential loss of life of others at the hands of ARNAOUT. At the time of his arrest, a reportedly cash-strapped ARNAOUT was driving a late model rental vehicle and carrying explosives in amounts far in excess and much more lethal than contained within the letter bombs he reportedly sent to date. He was a three-month resident of the "Bombay Bunker," a dwelling located at 176 Ashdale Avenue, aptly nicknamed due to its unique, strangely fortified, bunker-like appearance and additions, the varying number of occupants and the frequency of its many obviously-Islamic visitors.

Islamic forums

Great for a laugh eh? Well may be not a laugh. Not a laugh at all in fact. Bit of repulsion? No problem. Fancy a bit of depression? Sure thing.

LGF highlights the posting of a jihadi video at an Islamic forum

A casual browse along, and there's another post.

As a convert in the post 9/11 world I know that to the West, a veil is now synonymous with terrorism over oppression. My father, a middle-class Catholic, once rang me the day after 9/11 to enquire as to my whereabouts. “So? What have you been up to?” he asked, in an attempt to appear casual. “Well, it wasn’t me,” I assured him. We laughed together, but he is clearly relieved. He never ceases to amuse me with his proposals.
“I’ll give you a thousand pounds if you take off your veil and walk down the length of Oxford Street with me,” he offered, perfectly serious. [What a preposterous idea!! - Ed]

Poor bloke.

This err, lass, has a website she contributes to snappily titled al-istiqamah where she agonises how intolerant everyone is of her chosen belief of strict Islam. The horror she felt when somebody shouted 'ninja' at her. How terrible. Like she says she rarely goes out without her husband (chafeur she calls him). Here's a tip lass, if it's so terribly intolerant over here... Perhaps you'd consider Saudia Arabia as a place for living? That's more to your tastes, is it not???

If I, lassy, were to go a live in an Islamic state I'd certainly be whipped, tortured and probably EXECUTED if not by the mob then by the state - if I were to carry on as I do in this country of mine, Great Britain.

Update: This lass, totally vexed by frightful reactions to her full length ghost outfit (as it was described to me by a young child), has no idea why people are so suspicious. Coincidentally, the first European Muslim to stage a suicide attack was also Catholic before she converted to the wondrous religion.

Winds of War: The Coming War for Democracy

In an opinion piece in the Wall Street Journal, Joshua Muravchik wrote about the Winds of War. I’m flattered that he’s been reading my blog . Be that what it may, he sees the gathering storm of the coming war and made some important remarks concerning the reasons why. His reasons ties in nicely to how history is repeating itself.

The apparent meaning of all of this pointless provocation and bullying is that the axis of radicals--Iran, Syria, Hamas and Hezbollah--is feeling its oats. In part its aim is to intimidate the rest of us, in part it is merely enjoying flexing its muscles. It believes that its side has defeated America in Iraq, and Israel in Gaza and Lebanon. Mr. Ahmadinejad recently claimed that the West has already begun to "surrender," and he gloated that “final victory . . . is near." It is this bravado that bodes war.

A large portion of modern wars erupted because aggressive tyrannies believed that their democratic opponents were soft and weak. Often democracies have fed such beliefs by their own flaccid behavior. Hitler's contempt for America, stoked by the policy of appeasement, is a familiar story. But there are many others. North Korea invaded South Korea after Secretary of State Dean Acheson declared that Korea lay beyond our "defense perimeter." Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait after our ambassador assured him that America does not intervene in quarrels among Arabs. Imperial Germany launched World War I, encouraged by Great Britain's open reluctance to get involved. Nasser brought on the 1967 Six Day War, thinking that he could extort some concessions from Israel by rattling his sword.

Democracies, it is now well established, do not go to war with each other. But they often get into wars with non-democracies. Overwhelmingly the non-democracy starts the war; nonetheless, in the vast majority of cases, it is the democratic side that wins. In other words, dictators consistently underestimate the strength of democracies, and democracies provoke war through their love of peace, which the dictators mistake for weakness.


In a very concise way, Muravchik has given the reason why this declared war on democracy by those who champion Islamism will begin sooner rather than later. This war might be a traditional shooting war that the Islamists will most certainly loose. But there is another possibility. Why risk loosing to technological superior enemy when the much more covert tactics of media, demographic, litigation, institutional, financial, economic and thuggery jihads are proving quite successful.

That is to say in the words of Admiral Yamamoto, why ‘awaken a sleeping giant”. The political and demographic jihads of intimidation, infiltration and disinformation have succeeded quite well in muddying the democracies responses at self-defense – with the gleeful help of the Islamists’ useful idiots.
