Storm Track Intimidation: Islam - The Religion of Peace Speaks

Found this little piece of news over at Up Pompii. When will we learn that with Muslims, voluntary accommodation leads most often to arrogant demands? A Turkish mosque's chief threatens violent revolt in Amsterdam if Amsterdam city council bars construction of the Westermoskee mosque.

If Amsterdam city council bars construction of the Westermoskee mosque, a great demonstration of Turks from throughout Europe will be held. The possibility of this degenerating into violence cannot be ruled out, the Turkish organisation Milli Gorus warns.

The controversial Westermoskee in Amsterdam will be built come what may, said Fatih Dag of the Turkish mosque organisation in Trouw newspaper. If the government blocks its building, Milli Gorus will call on Turks throughout the whole of Europe to demonstrate. Dag hopes this would be a peaceful procession, but fears it could get out of hand. "Our people are emotional and someone crazy can just be walking among them," he said in the newspaper.

There’ the veiled threat of the iron hand in the velvet glove Muslims love to use to intimidate dhimmis.

"Eat It, Lick It, Snort It, Fuck It": Britney Storms Out Of Court



ROTFL!

For no good reason at all, I am posting this story. Well, actually, maybe I do have a good reason, but I'll get to that at the end of the post:





Britney Spears Storms Out Of Court Sobbing, Cursing



UPDATE 4:10 PM, Pacific — Britney Spears made a brief exit from court just moments ago. The pop singer stormed out of the courtroom in an agitated state. She was yelling, “Eat it! Lick it! Snort it! F*** it!”

Spears lawyers ran after her, as did her former assistant, Alli Sims, who is with her in court.
Britney then returned to the courtroom, sobbing.


========

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 26, 2007) — Hollywood’s highest-profile custody case was back in court Friday, with Britney Spears arriving in her Mercedes convertible for a hearing to work out custody arrangements for her two young sons.

Her ex-husband Kevin Federline was also under court order to attend the Superior Court hearing.

Spears was spotted after arriving with a female companion and parking in an underground lot. Earlier in the day, a lawyer for Spears won a motion to bar videotaping of deposition testimony in the case.

Spears’ lawyer, Thomas Paine Dunlap, argued that video of the depositions would almost certainly wind up on YouTube. He said his celebrity client had a right to be protected from that exposure.

Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon made his ruling in spite of his concern that she is constantly courting “inordinate amounts of media,” which he said runs counter to her expressed desire for privacy.

“I’m not chastising her,” Gordon said.

(Pastorius comment: Yeah, you wouldn't want to chastise the great Britney. :)

“She’s an adult. But what I’m saying is someone who is always going to places where there is an inordinate amount of media, it doesn’t square.” Dunlap countered that the pop star was not trying to create media attention.

“If she goes to Starbucks, there’s media there. If she goes shopping, there’s media there,” he said.

Attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, who represents Federline, said his client wanted the depositions to be videotaped to preserve the demeanor of witnesses who testify during the closed sessions. After the commissioner’s ruling, Kaplan asked that experts and other parties be allowed to be present to see how witnesses responded.

Gordon said he would allow two people to observe the witnesses.

During the afternoon hearing, a lawyer for Spears was expected to argue that she has complied with court orders and should regain the shared custody she lost earlier this month.

In an unusual twist, a special metal detector was installed outside the courtroom. Officials were confiscating cell phones from everyone entering the floor to prevent media, attorneys and spectators from taking pictures in the courtroom. The process caused a backup of lawyers who had to empty brief cases for inspection.

During the morning hearing, Dunlap complained that he was being forced to do things he had never done before to get into a courtroom.

Gordon responded dryly, “This may be the manufacture of your client.”





Ok, so here's the reason I am posting this story. First off, I can put up a hot picture of Britney Spears, and that's always good. It's good for the libido and it's good for the traffic.


But beyond that, I just want to say, I love America. I love the Western world. I love that we can obsess over completely stupid bullshit like this.


That makes me inordinately happy.


If the Islamofascists of the world had their way, everyday, we would feel like we did the day of 9/11.


Do you remember how you felt that day? Do you remember how you felt in the weeks after 9/11? Do you remember all the sobbing and the weeping?


Doesn't it feel a lot better to just worry about Britney?


It does, doesn't it?


Anyway, this morning an "Anonymous" commenter came to IBA and left the following comment:





I'm a very proud, well informed, and widely read leftist. HOWEVER, I do realize the threat that islamic supremicism and fascism poses. What I find morbidly ironic is that the right (in bed with fascism) is the political voice that realizes this. I fear that, without a brain the failure of the left is going to deal a serious blow to civilization.


Here's my response to him:


Welcome!


We accept all voices here at the Infidel Bloggers Alliance. Myself, Epaminondas, and several of our other writers are lifelong Democrats who have turned rightward because of exactly the ignorance you speak of the left demonstrating.


If you want to, you ought to begin commenting here from your left perspective, and if you are not too hostile towards us, I will make you a member, and you can propose some leftie solutions to the problem.




Thus far, I have not been able to find any. I haven't been able to think of any way to win this war, other than to kill our enemies.

That's why I have turned "rightward."

However, that being said, the exact reason I am doing this is because I don't want to see gays, apostates, and adulterers stoned to death, and because I like freedom of speech/conscience, and I like all the decadent freedoms of the West.





Yes, I like looking at pictures of Britney Spears (and other hot chicks). I like that gays can roam the streets freely. I like that people can change religions like they change their shoes. I like that Rosie O'Donnell can go on TV and lie about 9/11. I like all of that.


In fact, I fucking love it, and I never ever want it to disappear.


Long live Britney and Kevin Federline, and whatever the fuck it was that Britney was trying to express with what she blurted out in the courtroom yesterday.


Just think about it, guys. It must have had something to do with Kevin's demands of her, huh? Wouldn't you just love to know?


Better yet, I think I'll just make something up and think about it while I, uh, make myself happy.


Have a great day all my Western brothers and sisters.

I, Pastorius, Am A Proud Terrorist


Iranian.org (a website affiliated with Hizballah) has declared every American a "terrorist".

Well, if they say so.

I am one proud fucking terrorist.


DEBKAfile

Reports: An Iranian organization (Hizballah's Friends) declares every American a "terrorist" after Washington unveils a new package of extra-tough sanctions Thursday
October 25, 2007, 11:55 AM (GMT+02:00)


The package was announced jointly by secretary of state Condoleezza Rice and treasury secretary Henry Paulson and include branding Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and the al Qods Brigade sponsor of terrorists. These steps are unprecedented.

DEBKAfile's Iranian sources recall that the Islamic regime announced in advance that approval of these measures would be deemed tantamount to an American declaration of war on Iran and call forth retaliation.

(Pastorius comment: Bring it on!)

Tehran would target US interests in the Persian Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan or Israel by means of Special Groups, i.e. Iran's foreign intelligence networks, Hizballah or Hamas.

DEBKAfile's sources reveal that these reprisals may be delayed some days because Iran's leadership is in the throes of a profound power struggle between hardliners and pragmatists.

(Pastorius comment: Pragmatists? What kind of bullshit is that? What is does a pragmatic Mullah look like? Is he a guy who thinks you ought only jail an apostate of homo? Fuck this bullshit. I'm sick of being told there are pragmatists in that regime. Show me one. One, for God's sake!)

However, since the supreme ruler, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is commander-in-chief of Iran's armed forces, including the IRGC and its al Qods Brigade, Tehran cannot afford to let Washington's accusations go unanswered.

The new sanctions package includes US financial penalties for any world firms trading with the Revolutionary Guards. They would apply to more than 1,000 companies in Europe, the Middle East, the Persian Gulf and Asia. Our Iranian sources note that since IRGC-owned companies control more than 35 percent of Iran's economic activities, the new sanctions will have a crippling effect on its national economy. This is already hard hit by Washington's systematic blockage of Iran's dealings with international banks, which has left Tehran seriously short of cash flow, foreign currency and basic commodities.

According to DEBKAfile's sources, Iran very recently sent Indonesia an "emergency appeal" for gasoline and heavy oil, because it has run out of currency to pay for imported refined oil products.

(Pastorius comment: Hee hee! I love hearing that. Maybe the "pragmatists won't be able to drive to their "pragmatic" jobs.)

Tehran offered to reward Jakarta with a concession for building big new oil refineries, which Iran lacks.

Indonesia has not yet replied. Its government must take into account that no serious world oil enterprise would be willing to cooperate in a refinery project in Iran for fear of a backlash from the American boycott.


They call me a terrorist?!?

Maybe they shouldn't give me any ideas.

By the way, you may have noticed Russia has been a bit stand-offish with Iran of late. Half the time they are supporting old Mahmoud, and the other half they are lecturing him. What gives?

Well, I'll bet it has to do with Iran's lack of funds. Believe you me, Russia would like nothing better than to feed the enemies of the United States.

The truth of the matter is, this war is not, ultimately, between the West and Islamofascism. It is between the United States and China/Russia.

We will prevail.

A Message To Peaceful Muslims

On the Infidel Blogger's Alliance and other sites, I've seen many comments by Muslims trying to tell non-Muslims that Islam is really a peaceful religion and that the terrorists have it all wrong. A friend of mine I've known for years is an ex-Muslim, who grew up in a Muslim country, and even he has told me Islamic terrorists don't understand the "true" teachings of Islam.

This article is my response to all those comments on web sites, including this one. This is a message to Muslims who want to convince non-Muslims that Islam is a religion of peace.

My main message is: Please stop. We are trying to defeat terrorism here, and when you tell non-Muslims that message, you aren't helping the cause. You're actually hindering it. I'll explain how in a minute.

If you peaceful Muslims are trying to defend your religious beliefs, I think most people would understand and sympathize with your motives. But by doing it here, what have you accomplished? On this site, and on many others, we are trying to defeat terrorism. Have you helped our cause? No. All you've done is try to convince us Islam is great.

You need to understand the effect of your defense on the non-Muslim mind. If you want to end Islamic terrorism, and if you understood what effect you had, you would stop defending your faith to infidels.

Because even if we all believed you, so what? Even if you successfully convinced us Islam is really a religion of peace, what difference would it make? Does it help us defeat terrorism?
No, not at all. We have terrorists quoting the Koran (urging Muslims to kill infidels) and we have other Muslims saying the Koran is only about peace. Where does that leave us? You've replaced clarity with confusion. You've replaced resolve with hesitation. And to that degree, you've given the terrorists the upper hand.

This is a deadly serious business, and this seemingly insignificant issue is the crucial pivoting point. Knowing how and why your enemy wants to destroy you is an enormous advantage in a global war in which many hundreds of thousands have already lost their lives.

Peaceful Muslims, I ask you to hear this: You make non-Muslims less able to defend themselves by going on these websites and justifying your religion to them.

Part of what makes the issue confusing for westerners is that we don't know if you're sincere or if you're trying to deceive us. Many terrorists exclaim vehemently that Islam is a religion of peace. But when they say it, they are trying to trick non-Muslims and confuse us while they continue their jihad against us (or what they mean is: as soon as Islam conquers all countries, the world will be at peace, so therefore, Islam is a religion of peace).

But my feeling is that most of the Muslims who have written to me are actually sincere, peace-loving, non-terrorist Muslims who have no interest in blowing up infidels. My friend is one of those. He is perfectly sincere.

If you are one of those sincerely peaceful Muslims, I know you have explained away the violent parts of the Koran terrorists often quote. And good for you. I'm glad you have. You had a teacher who convinced you jihad is really an inner struggle. And that's great.
The teacher provided you with the complex mental maneuvers you need to see the Koran as a peaceful document.

But you are doing harm and causing confusion by telling infidels you know the "true teachings" of Islam.
The Islamic terrorists aren't listening to unorthodox teachers. Terrorists are fundamentalists. They are strongly against any moderation of Islamic texts.

It doesn't really matter that you have somehow explained away Allah's commands to kill all the infidels the terrorists have not explained it away! They make the more direct assumption that if Allah said it, He must have meant it.

You think the terrorists who quote the Koran are wrong. And you believe the fundamentalists running Iran, Syria, Pakistan, the Sudan, and Saudi Arabia don't really know what Islam is all about. Okay, fine. Does that help us defeat terrorism now that we know that? Not one little bit.

But when infidels get a good idea of what is actually in the Koran, and when they learn about the Islamic principles of deceit and pretext, and when we find out the goal and purpose of the Islamic faith, and when we learn about the methods Islamists use to infiltrate and destroy, then we infidels are better able to protect ourselves. It's like finding out the plans of an enemy during war. It helps tremendously to anticipate what they're going to do and to understand their motives. This knowledge improves our ability to defend ourselves against it.

The Victory Hour




This is the new show from Richard Davis and Skye, two brave Freedom Fighters from Philadelphia.
Read about how Rich and Skye stand up to the "Peace" DEMONstrators (article from Philadelphia Inquirer).


I recommend this show. I had Skye and Richard on the last installment of the Infidel Bloggers Alliance Radio Show, and they are awesome. Guys, if you can't afford the bill for phone sex, listen in even if you have no interest in the subject matter, because Skye's voice is


FRIGGIN' AWESOME!


And, just look at her (she's the one on the left).
But, the show does have important anti-Islamofascist content, if you are so inclined.

Reflections on the Islamic veil

Following the protests sparked in Spain after a six-year-old girl in Catalonia and two other girls in Ceuta have been allowed to go to school with the hijab, and in Italy after the prefect of Treviso allowed women to wear burqa, I have written some reflections about the women, burqa and Islamic veil.

Attack On Anti-Islamificationists


From this source:
The Danish chapter of Stop the Islamisation Of Europe, SIOE, has come out with a disturbing report of what seems to be a co-ordinated attempt on the lives and/or physical well being of their leaders.

The photos below come from this source:







So, what was going on? (SIOE stands for "Stop the Islamisation of Europe"; SIAD stands for Stop the Islamisation of Denmark):
On sunday the 21th October SIOE Denmark had announced a demonstration in Copenhagen....Before the demo Anders Gravers (SIOE and SIAD) and 2 other members were driving in a van with three seats in the front, following the security car(...)

2-5 sek. after there was a loud bang and the frontwindow was damaged. About two autonomous looking types were in the front and two on each side smashing the side windows shouting "Get him out, get him out!" and started hitting Anders and the SIAD passenger in the other site with ironbars. The SIAD member in the middle was hit of a thrown filled soda bottle in her backhead.

Anders succeded after a while to kick one of the autonomous hard in the face as he leaned in to unlock the door. Anders managed to get out with a fire extinguisher from the van and hit another one hard on the shoulder. It remained later that they attempted to stab him down when there was found cut holes in the shirt, jacket and vest. Anders was wearing his security vest which saved his life.


Suddenly they disappeared and Anders got around the van and saw a SIAD member lying on the floor while he was beaten in the head of 4-5 persons with ironbars. Apperently they also tried to stab him down, but again he also wore his security vest which saved his life.

Suddenly someone screamed RUN RUN and they disappeared up the steep driveway. The elderly woman was lying on the floor completely still. She had been in the security car and got out immediately when the driver shouted OUT OUT. She didn’t know what to do and started running. She was hunted down by two persons and banged down with an ironbar. She lay completely still in the hope she wouldn’t get anymore. She felt they stood a moment watching her if she would move. Then they presumably ran to the other SIAD member on the floor and joined the attack on him.
Kleinverzet concludes with the following:
The SIOE site has more, including photos of the aftermath, New Zonka has background on this incident and the dereliction of duty by the Danish MSM. This was not reported AT ALL anywhere in Europe (much like the Amsterdam car-b-ques or the Brussels riots). Even the Danish MSM got it (deliberately?) wrong.

This could be just another stormy week in Eurabia. On the other hand, this could be the cauldron starting to boil. Fact is: I'm bracing myself.
"That's over in Europe and could never happen here," you say. Well, after a recent experience of my own, I'm not so sure that the danger is as distant as we'd like to believe.

Not long ago, I spoke in person to a group about the Islamification of the West, right here in the D.C. area. And guess what? Some present insisted afterwards that I have a security escort to my car. I'm not kidding! Here in America! You see, terrorism comes in different forms, including that of intimidation.

So, before you brush off the idea that the above attack is something which could happen only "over there," I suggest that you rethink your complacency. I've been rethinking mine. Understand that I am rethinking and considering some new strategies. I am not cowed. I will not submit! In fact, I feel a wave of ramping-up coming on.

LEFTIES PREPARING FOR THE GREAT ISLAMIC BUTT RAPE


Given the way most of us pay any real attention to the tenets of our faith, life really wouldn’t be that different if we were to exchange one faith for another.
The prayers would be different, but we would recite them just as mindlessly as we do today. The sermons would in all likelihood be exactly the same, and we’d continue to snore through them.
Sure, there are a few people here and there who take religion seriously, but they are in such a small minority that their protests can be easily ignored.
All in all, converting to Islam would be a small price to pay for an end to the killing and maiming of our sons and daughters, not to mention the billions of dollars we could put to better use than fighting this perpetual war.

Assume the position, guys.

Fuck that!

Storm Track Infiltration: A New Form of Financial Jihad

Muslim charitable organizations are not the only way Jihadists can funnel financial support to their cause. Ever morphing in response to pressure on this form of crack-down, the financial jihad has turned to a new way to skirt anti-terror laws.

MURDER ATTEMPT ON DANISH LEADER OF ANTI-ISLAMIFICATION MOVEMENT


As the Center for Vigiliant Freedom attempts to build itself into a multi-national political party representing Democracy and Human Rights (as opposed to the politically correct totalitarianism of the European Union) already, there are attempts to silence the fledgling organization.

This morning I reported on how the Council of Europe had determined that the problem in Europe does not emanate from Islamification, but instead has come from "bigots." Tonight comes the scary news that, already, there has been an attempt on the life of one of the earliest CVF founders.





The attacks on freedom fighters, truth tellers continue unabated. The siege on Europe is of frightening proportion, which is why these efforts are so important and must succeed.
SIOE website

SIOE Denmark is only coming with a report now on the murder attempt and the demonstration in Copenhagen. There was a need for recover but also because the main stream medias have been either completely silent or have published lies about the incidents. We have waited to see if the msm would write about the incident. This is the first article about it, and one more will follow about the demonstration.

Maniacal Muslim Woman Assaults Condi Rice


From Debbie Schlussel:


... the name of this woman (not Condi Clueless, but the one with the discolored hands from America-hating Code Pink) is:

Desiree Anita Ali-Fairooz

But I'm sure her surname has nooooothing to do with it. "Religion of Bloody Red Hands & Code Pinko"?


Check out the video.





How is it possible that the Secret Service allowed that woman to get that close to the Secretary of State?

That is disgusting and pathetic.

Muslims Against Sharia Give UC Berkeley The Dhimmi Award


As a part of "Islamofascism Awareness Week", Nonie Darwish spoke at U.C. Berkeley on October 22. As usual, Islamofascists and their Dhimmi supporters have shown their unwavering resolve to crush any type of dissent.


One the members of the "Students for Justice in Palestine" claimed that the purpose of the "Islamofascism Awareness Week" is to reinvigorate anti-Muslim and anti-Arab campaign. Given the fact that the speaker, Nonie Darwish, is both Muslim by birth and Arab it truly shows the depth of brainwashing on campus.

Emory University's Complete Disgrace

Yesterday David Horowitz attempted to give a lecture at Emory University in Atlanta. Predictably the Leftist rent-a-mob shouted down Horowitz and would not allow him to speak.

The audience included a wide range of Leftists from Amnesty International, Veterans for Peace, and Students for Justice in Palestine, as well as Muslim groups such as the Muslim Student Association...There was also a sizable group of men and women dressed in traditional Muslim garb as well as students wearing Kafiyehs, a symbol of Arab solidarity.

"I've spoken at Emory University several times and I've never seen it this bad," said Horowitz responding to the crowd as they shouted and jeered. "This is exactly what the fascists did in Germany in the 1930s." Protesters began their efforts as soon as Horowitz was introduced with boos and chants of "Heil Hitler."


This is the same institution of higher learning that will open its arms and wallets next week for an apologist of Islamofascism. Next Monday, October 29th, Hanan Ashrawi will be at Emory presenting her standard lies and excuses for Jihad. This is how Emory describes their terrorist love-fest:

A distinguished Palestinian scholar and former minister of higher education and research in the Palestinian Authority, Ashrawi is well known throughout the world for her strong advocacy of human rights and peace-making. Her talk will focus on the prospects for peace in the Middle East.

"As a university committed to producing knowledge, we are confronting the most difficult questions of our time," says Emory Provost Earl Lewis. "These events are designed to provide a public forum for the expression of a wide variety of views, to facilitate scholarly analysis and to shed new light on this critical issue."

It still amazes me that college administrators can state such blatant lies with a straight face.

Question: Do The Feds Always Join The Probe Into Arson Fires Which Do Not Cross State Lines?

From Associated Press:


LOS ANGELES (AP) - Federal agents joined the search for evidence Wednesday in brush-covered Orange County hills where an arsonist is believed to have ignited one of the wildfires devastating Southern California.

In San Bernardino County, a man suspected of starting a small fire was arrested and another man was shot to death by police after he fled officers who approached to see if he might be trying to set a fire.

Orange County officials converged on a remote area of bone-dry brush where a 19,200-acre wildfire has destroyed nine homes. They were aided by special teams from the FBI and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The federal government planned to send more agents from around the country to help with the probe.

Investigators taped off an area they called a crime scene, took photos, collected evidence and recorded map coordinates, according to ATF Special Agent Susan Raichel. Authorities believe the fire had been set because they found three different ignition points within a short distance - a common sign of arson.

A $70,000 reward was offered for information leading to an arrest in the case.

In San Bernardino County, a motorcyclist who authorities say set a small fire in a rural foothill area of the San Bernardino Mountains has been booked for investigation of arson. Authorities said they didn't know if the man was connected to any of the 16 major wildfires burning in Southern California.

In the city of San Bernardino, police shot and killed a man who fled when officers approached to see if he might be trying to set a fire.

The man, whose name was not released, was shot Tuesday night following a chase that ended when he backed his car into a police cruiser and an officer opened fire, San Bernardino police said.


Why do you think this man's name is not being released? Is it Mohammed, perhaps?

Storm Track Disinformation: The Left Needs to Get Its Definitions Straight

It seems the liberal Left has its panties in a bunch over the growing popularity of Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week. The author of a column at Badger Herald is all in huff about the term Islamo-fascist. Like any good lefty he consulted his dictionary and came up with this definition.

Anyone knowledgeable about politics can tell you that fascism — a system where citizens are subservient to the state — is the antithesis of radical Islam — a system where practitioners are subservient to the Quran.
Umm…excuse me. You are not knowledgeable about politics, sir. Fascism is the correct word because – and this is where the Islamic apologist show their ignorance of political history – Islam is the State. Islam is both a religion and a socio-political system of thought. Islamism is the proper term for the ideology and Islamo-fascist is the correct term for those who practice it.

But the author the piece only starts to show his ignorance.

Council Of Europe: Europe Is Threatened By Bigots - Not Islam


Europe continues to lie to itself. The lies are a function of the appeasement reflex. Human beings, who are cocooned in comfortable lives will do anything, tell themselves anything, to avoid having to admit that they have a problem.

Europe, like an alcoholic, is addicted to its sense of entitlement. Talk to Europeans and they will tell you they have had enough of war. They have seen the horrors of war. They lived with war on their soil, and they want no more of it.

But, this is not wholly the truth. Europeans do love war. Europeans created their own history. It is a history of blood and conquest, which led to land being divided up, until land no longer was the issue. The issue today is not land, it is the flow of goods and information. And now, the only reason Europe no longer wants to fight is because they have conquered all.

To be sure, they have done this while riding on the backs of Americans. Americans taught Europeans a better way to conquer, not with weaponry, but with ideas. Yes, America has fought wars. And, America has won wars. But, in no war, since the 19th century, did America take land, subject its people, and plunder its resources. Wars, from America's perspective, should only be fought for defensive purposes, as when an enemy (such as the Soviet Union) attempts to imperialize a nation or series of nations.

America's wars have been fought to ensure that the flow of goods and information would not be impeded by those who would take resources and keep them for themselves and themselves only. America's wars have been fought with the idea in mind that the free flow of capitalism is good for everyone, because the rising tide lifts all ships.

While Europeans have theorized about a world beyond war, a world where problems are solved through diplomacy rather than violent confrontation, America has truly worked to make this happen. Both the League of Nations and the United Nations were born of the work and ideas of American Presidents (Churchill also had quite a hand in the birth of the United Nations). The United Nations, while flawed from its outset, and likely defeated and irrelevant today, has been a noble attempt to move towards a world beyond war.

But, the truth is, our world will never project itself beyond war. Instead, we may learn to construct a sort of detente of devils for periods of time. But, the world will never move beyond war, because war is a natural consequence of the Free Will of human spirit. And, it is the promotion of Free Will which must be our highest priority, not the subjugation of those who would wage wars. To quell the will of those who would choose to fight for their rights would merely be another tyrrany, for who is to decide whose rights are reasonable, and whose are not?

We walk through history, saddled with the blessing and the curse of our will, and our will will always be the deciding factor in all human endeavor. We may sharpen our wills on the whetstone of morality, but we may not trust that our fellow man will do the same. And so we are left with will, and with will, war.

When war knocks on your door, there is no avoiding it, ultimately. There is only stalling. And stalling leads to only greater punishment, greater loss, more brutality, more death.

And, the lies which a people has to tell itself in order to forestall war, once it is inevitable, these lies are the lies that sicken the soul. They destroy the heart of mankind. They threaten to shake the foundations of Freedom.

What lies are these? What lies am I talking about?

Well, for instance, the Council of Europe has decided, on an official basis, seeminly, that Europe has no problem with Islamification. No. Those Sharia-espousing Jihadis, who would murder all homosexuals, apostates, and adulterers, they are not a problem for Europe. The problem instead is the very people who object to the Jihadis.

And, we are called "Bigots." Got that? Roll that around on your tongue for awhile. Bigots. The word begins with pursed lips, proceeds towards the uvula, almost inciting the gag reflex, before ending on a T. A cross on which we can be hung as the sacrificial lambs, to attone for the lies of the appeasers who are working so hard to bring about so much future death and destruction.

Read on:


Last Tuesday the police authorities in Brussels, the "capital of Europe," brutally attacked peaceful demonstrators protesting the Islamization of Europe. Even the European Commission was shocked at the appalling behaviour of the Brussels police, but the officers seem to have their fans as well.

This is a press release (590/2007) issued on Tuesday by Terry Davis, the Secretary General of the Council of Europe.

Europe is threatened by bigots - not by Islam

Statement by Terry Davis, Secretary General of the Council of Europe, on the march "Against the Islamisation of Europe" today in Brussels

Strasbourg, 11.09.2007 - European values are under threat, say the organisers of a protest march under the banner "Against the Islamisation of Europe" which was due to place today in Brussels in spite of the ban by the city Mayor. The fact is that Europe and its values are indeed under threat, but the danger is not coming from Islam. Our common European values are undermined by bigots and radicals, both islamists and islamophobes, who exploit fears and prejudice for their own political objectives.

The self-proclaimed defenders of European values say that the Mayor has violated their rights under the European Convention on Human Rights. The freedom of assembly and the freedom of expression are indeed essential preconditions for democracy, but they should not be regarded as a licence to offend.

(Voltaire said, "I do not agree with what you have to say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it." - I thought that idea has always been considered the cornerstone of our Democratic principles.)

I will not enter into the discussion about whether the march should have been allowed or not, but I note that the protesters' reading of the Convention is selective to say the least. It is very important to remember that the freedom of assembly and expression can be restricted to protect the rights and freedoms of others, including the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This applies to everyone in Europe including the millions of Europeans of Islamic faith, who were the main target of today's shameful display of bigotry and intolerance.


Just remember Belgium, you are first on our list. What does it say at the top of our page?

The Parallel Government Of The Entire World
All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same inalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.


Yes, I believe regime change will be necessary.

More Lawmakers Reject Copy Of Koran

From the Tulsa World:


OKLAHOMA CITY -- Sixteen state lawmakers have joined Rep. Rex Duncan, R-Sand Springs, in refusing a gift copy of the Quran.

The holy book of the Muslim religion was offered as a centennial gift by the Governor's Ethnic American Advisory Council, made up of American Muslims from Middle East countries.

Duncan refused, saying, "Most Oklahomans do not endorse the idea of killing innocent women and children in the name of ideology."

Allison Moore of Tulsa, who converted to the Muslim faith more than a decade ago, said Duncan can count members of her faith among those who don't endorse those things. "We do not condone suicide bombers any more than the Christians," she said.

Duncan reiterated Tuesday that the council's spokeswoman had stated in an e-mail to elected officials that "the Holy Quran is the record of the exact words revealed by God through the Angel Gabriel to the Prophet Muhammad."

Referring to a point he said was emphasized in the Quran, Duncan said it talks about seizing and killing those who turn their back on Islam.

FBI: Al Qaeda Detainee Spoke of Fire Plot


From USA Today (thanks to Michael):



PHOENIX (AP) — The FBI alerted law enforcement agencies last month that an al-Qaeda terrorist now in detention had talked of masterminding a plot to set a series of devastating forest fires around the western United States.


Rose Davis, a spokeswoman for the National Interagency Fire Center in Boise, told The Associated Press that officials there took note of the warning but didn't see a need to act further on it.


The contents of the June 25 memo from the FBI's Denver office were reported Friday by The Arizona Republic. Davis declined to share a copy of the memo and an FBI spokeswoman in Denver didn't immediately return a telephone call.


The Republic reported that the detainee, who was not identified, said the plan involved three or four people setting wildfires using timed devices in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming that would detonate in forests and grasslands after the operatives had left the country.


The memo noted that investigators couldn't determine whether the detainee was telling the truth.


The newspaper said many forest law enforcement officers it contacted had no idea the warning had been issued.



I live in Orange County, California, near UC Irvine. Tonight on the way home from work, I heard on KFI AM 640 Radio news that the FBI and the ATF were investigating an arsonist who started a fire in Santiago Canyon.


That is near UC Irvine.


Just sayin'.

"A Farewell To Arms" by Private S. Beauchamp

The Walter Winchell of our age has gotten access to some documents about the fake-but-accurate stories of The New Republic war-time “diarist”, Scott Thomas (Beauchamp).

The Next HemingwayThe DRUDGE REPORT has obtained internal documents from the investigation of THE NEW REPUBLIC’S “Baghdad Diarist”…

[…]

The documents appear to expose that once the veracity of Beauchamp’s diaries were called into question, and an Army investigation ensued, THE NEW REPUBLIC has failed to publicly account for publishing slanderous falsehoods about the U.S. military in a time of war.

I thought only Republicans stonewalled. The New Republic? Heaven forefend. These people are Al Gore’s champions. Like Al Gore, they would never lie. Never.

Meanwhile, Drudge has some gory details for us, and it turns out that what everyone suspected was right all along:

Document 1: Beauchamp Refuses to Stand by Story (Beauchamp Transcript Part 1)

THE NEW REPUBLIC has been standing behind the stories from their Baghdad Diarist, Scott Thomas Beauchamp…. On August 10, the editors at TNR accused the Army of “stonewalling” their investigation into the stories by preventing them from speaking with Beauchamp.

The DRUDGE REPORT has since obtained the transcript of a September 7 call between TNR editor Frank Foer, TNR executive editor Peter Scoblic, and Private Beauchamp.[my emphasis] During the call, Beauchamp declines to stand by his stories, telling his editors that “I just want it to end. I’m not going to talk to anyone about anything really.”

Document 2: Beauchamp Admits to “Gross Exaggerations and Inaccurate Allegations” (Beauchamp Transcript Part 2)

...a signed “Memorandum for Record” in which Beauchamp recants his stories and concedes the facts of the Army’s investigation -- that his stories contained “gross exaggerations and inaccurate allegations of misconduct” by his fellow soldiers.

Document 3: Army Investigation: Tales “Completely Fabricated,” Beauchamp Wanted to be Hemingway

The Army concluded that Beauchamp had “completely fabricated” the story of mocking a disfigured woman, that his description of a “Saddam-era dumping ground” was false, and that claims that he and his men had deliberately targeted dogs with their armored vehicles was “completely unfounded.” Further the report stated “that Private Beauchamp desired to use his experiences to enhance his writing and provide legitimacy to his work possibly becoming the next Hemingway.”

Well, there’s one dead daydream for you. What will they call his collection of mendacious tales? “For Whom the Bell Tolls” has a certain ring to it. Certainly the Pink Ladies would buy it.

But now Beauchamp will have to re-invent himself. Perhaps a new career that doesn’t require integrity or the need to stay in touch with reality. Slap a wig on him and have him practice his French. We could use a new Marie Antoinette in the recession everyone says is coming. Certainly this Private has a certain je ne said quoi required for the rôle of Public Distracter.

Drudge ends his revelations this way:

The report concludes that “Private Beauchamp takes small bits of truth and twists and exaggerates them into fictional accounts that he puts forth as the whole truth for public consumption.”

Developing…

In other words, he has more information up his sleeve.


Ht tip: Captain’s Quarters

CQ has an update:

Michelle Malkin has great screen grabs of the transcript of the call between Franklin Foer and Peter Scoblic of TNR and Beauchamp. In one, it becomes obvious that it was TNR that was responsible for Beauchamp’s silence, and not the Army…

On second thought, maybe Beauchamp could take Dan Rather’s place. We need someone capable of filling Dan’s shoes. I hope he can speak Southren...

Storm Track Disinformation: The Language of Jihad

I’ve been waiting to see the analysis of the letter from the 138 Muslim leaders call for common ground with Christians before I blogged on it. Many of the Christian leadership and political pundits shot from the hip and said this was a peaceful overture to non-Muslims and perhaps the beginning of a dialogue of peace between Muslims and non-Muslims.

To bad it ain’t so.

The reason is that we are dealing with an alien culture to our own. One that speaks its own language, has its own pedagogy, and except for a few non-Muslim scholars on Islam like Robert Spencer, it’s a language that the non-Muslim world ceases to understand.

Some say Muslims don’t say what they mean. That there words are a type of lie, or what Muslims call ‘taqiyya’. Though Muslims are permitted to lie and misdirect non-Muslims with their words, they, more often than not, mean exactly what they say. It’s just that the meaning of many of their words is very different from those of non-Muslims.

And the recent letter proves it.

"Lifting the Fog"

My friend Mustang of Social Sense has written what I consider an excellent and important essay. Excerpt from the end of the essay:
...It is amazing to me that President Bush and other leaders in the Western World refuse to acknowledge the truth of what is happening. Indeed, Mr. Bush is prancing around the Saudis like a little girl in a tutu — and the greatest evidence of this is our government’s refusal to demand closure of Wahhabist madrassahs in Northern Virginia and other locations from one end of this country to the other. I can assure you that if anyone opened a Christian academy that taught students to hate and seek out Muslims and mutilate them, the entire weight of the U. S. government would descend upon them in short order....
Read Mustang's entire essay. Worth your time and consideration.

We lack effective political leadership, leaders who are not dhimmis, leaders with guts enough to get past political correctness. Where are those leaders?

Glenn Beck Is Absolutely Right!


In answer to WC's post here, I want to say that it is my opinion that Glenn Beck is not only absolutely right, but that he is even righteous in what he is saying.

Watch the video, and then read my words.





WC says, "I hope he’s wrong."

I don't want to be equivocal here in any manner.

I don't hope he is wrong.

In fact, I know he is right, and I have been saying the same thing for several years now.

And, let's be clear, it is kind to tell Muslims this, because it is the truth. There are many decent Muslims out there, but they are not stepping up and speaking out, and that is going to put them in grave danger, if we get hit by a massive WMD attack here in the West.

Muslims are in real trouble. And, they don't understand it. They will be gone.

What would you expect to happen? Would you expect that if we got nuked, and didn't know who we could trust among the Muslim community, that we ought to just allow them to run free anyway?

Does that make any sense?

So far, no appreciable group of Muslims has stepped forward and made any far-reaching statement against Jihad and Sharia.

In fact, there are no moderate Muslim political organizations, academic institutions, media outlets, or governments, anywhere in the entire world.

What does that tell you?

Winds of War: The Double Bind of Jihad

Glenn Beck, no stranger to controversy, lays it on the line for Muslims. He says that unless Muslims wake up to the fact that a terrorist attack that kills tens of thousands of innocent Americans Muslims will be viewing the West through razor wire.

I hope he’s wrong.

Olmert Tells Leaders Of Germany And France It Is Time To Bomb Iran


Good for Olmert. Glad to hear he found his testicles:



DEBKAfile Exclusive:


Olmert sounds alarm: Iran has crossed red line for developing a nuclear weapon. It's too late for sanctions
October 22, 2007, 2:18 PM (GMT+02:00)

This is the message prime minister Ehud Olmert is carrying urgently to French President Nicolas Sarkozy Monday and British premier Gordon Brown Tuesday, according to DEBKAfile's military and intelligence sources.


Last week, Olmert placed the Israeli intelligence warning of an Iranian nuclear breakthrough before Russian president Vladimir Putin, while Israel's defense minister Ehud Barak presented the updated intelligence on the advances Iran has made towards its goal of a nuclear weapon to American officials in Washington, including President Bush.


Olmert will be telling Sarkozy and Brown that the moment for diplomacy or even tough sanctions has passed. Iran can only be stopped now from going all the way to its goal by direct, military action .


Information of the Iranian breakthrough prompted the latest spate of hard-hitting US statements. Sunday, Oct. 21, US vice president Cheney said: "Our country, and the entire international community, cannot stand by as a terror-supporting state fulfills its grandest ambitions.''


Friday, the incoming Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Adm. Michael Mullen said US forces are capable of operations against Iran's nuclear facilities or other targets. At his first news conference, he said: "I don't think we're stretched in that regard."


It is worth noting that whereas Olmert's visits are officially tagged as part of Israel's campaign for harsher sanctions against Iran, his trips are devoted to preaching to the converted, leaders who advocate tough measures including a military option; he has avoided government heads who need persuading, like German Chancellor Angela Merkel or Italian prime minister Romano Prodi.


The Israeli prime minister hurried over to Moscow last Thursday after he was briefed on the hard words exchanged between Putin and Iran's supreme ruler Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in Tehran Tuesday, Oct. 16.


According to DEBKAfile's sources, the Russian leader warned the ayatollah that the latest development in Iran's nuclear program prevented him from protecting Tehran from international penalties any longer; the clerical regime's options were now reduced, he said, to halting its clandestine nuclear activities or else facing tough sanctions, or even military action.
The Russian ruler's private tone of speech was in flat contrast to his public denial of knowledge of Iranian work on a nuclear weapon. It convinced Olmert to include Moscow in his European itinerary.


Our sources in Iran and Moscow report that Putin's dressing-down of Khamenei followed by his three-hour conversation with the Israeli prime minister acted as catalysts for Iranian hardliners's abrupt action in sweeping aside senior nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani Saturday, Oct. 20 and the Revolutionary Guards General Mahmoud Chaharbaghi's threat to fire 11,000 rockets and mortars at enemy targets the minute after Iran comes under attack.


Our military sources say Tehran could not manage to shoot off this number of projectiles on its own. Iran would have to co-opt allies and surrogates, Syria, Hizballah, Hamas and pro-Tehran militias in Iraq to the assault.


DEBKAfile's US military sources disclosed previously that if, as widely reported, Syria is in the process of building a small reactor capable of producing plutonium on the North Korean model, Iran must certainly have acquired one of these reactors before Syria, and would then be in a more advanced stage of plutonium production at a secret underground location.




In my opinion, Putin's "dressing-down" of the Ayatollah Khameini will have no effect whatsoever. I believe Iran is now under the complete control of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.


Read why here and here.

Demographic Change In China?

(All emphases by Always On Watch)




Photo credit
Excerpt from "Chasing the Chinese Dream: A Growing Number of the World's Emigrants Are Heading East, Rather Than West, in Search of Safety, Tolerance and Opportunity", an article in the October 21, 2007 edition of the Washington Post:
...In Yiwu, a city in the eastern province of Zhejiang that is the home of the world's largest wholesale market, "Exotic Street" lights up at night with stands filled with smoking kebabs, colorful hookahs and strong sugared tea for the almost exclusively Arab clientele.

Communist China's first attempt to make friends with outsiders and encourage cultural exchange came during the 1960s and '70s, as part of a campaign for ideological leadership in the developing world. China sought to spread socialism and unite the farmers of the world.

Today, its efforts to woo developing countries are driven by more calculated, strategic goals, most notably its need to secure long-term contracts for oil, gas and minerals to fuel its booming economy.

As part of this campaign, China has sought to portray itself as more open to Islam than other non-Muslim nations.

Over the past 20 years, the government has gradually allowed its own Muslim minority to rebuild institutions that were devastated by state-sponsored attacks on Islam during the Cultural Revolution. Islamic schools have opened, and scholars of Islam are being encouraged to go abroad to pursue their studies. Unlike Christians, China's estimated 20 million Muslims are considered an ethnic minority, a status that confers certain protections and privileges.

"In America, for people with my religion there can be a lot of problems," said Adamou Salissou, 25, from Niger. "The image they have of Muslims is that they are terrorists. Chinese don't have a problem with religion. They think, 'It's your religion and it's okay.' "

With funds from a Chinese government scholarship, Salissou is pursuing a master's degree in biochemistry and molecular biology at Xiamen University in Fujian province, where a community of Arab traders thrived in the 7th and 8th centuries. Salissou's brother Nour Mahamane, 23, joined him this fall and is studying for a master's degree in petrochemistry in Shanghai.

Mosques in areas such as Yiwu, where foreigners are concentrated, have been given more freedom than some others, which are under strict state control. Officials at the mosque here estimate that more than 20,000 Muslim immigrants, about 1,000 of them from Iraq, have settled in the area over the past five years....
The camel's nose in the tent. China is not welcoming these Muslim immigrants with open arms, however:
...But there are limits to China's welcome.

It's nearly impossible for foreigners who don't have Chinese ancestry to obtain citizenship, and like anywhere else, China has had its share of racial misunderstandings and clashes with foreigners....
The article concludes as follows:
In Yiwu, there was anger in the Iraqi community after an Iraqi man, Mostafa Ahmed Alazawi, was found dead in his rented home on March 30. His family wanted him to be buried in China and applied to the city for a piece of land. The city ruled that foreigners could not be buried in China, forcing the family to ship the body back to Iraq. The decision fueled outrage among the Iraqis. Through a friend, the family declined to be interviewed.

Anwar said that despite the tensions he's happier to be in China than elsewhere in the world.

"My brother lived in the Netherlands for nine years," he said. "There, if you are a foreigner, you are below them. When he came to China, everything was different. Here, if you are a foreigner, you are treated better than Chinese."

solidarity with politically incorrect (PI)

One of the largest german speaking blogs in europe, politically incorrect had to shut down it's whole work (provisionally) after several live threatening events (incl. really serious death threats) by "angry" muslims (what a surprise) against the founder Stefan Herre and his family! As a united front against islamofascism, let us show support and solidarity with the family Herre and the PI Team.
PI warns explicit of not publishing any adress or personal informations on the internet! It's serious.

Winds of War: Pelosi Slams Muslim Ideology Behind Bhutto Blast

Reminiscent of the headline in the NYT the day the Towers fell on 9-11 World Trade Towers Fall. Hundreds of Women and Minorities Killed”, Nancy Pelosi has an epiphany.

(2007-10-19) — As the death toll climbed past 130, with nearly 400 injured, in a suicide-bomb assassination attempt on former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi condemned the attack as “symptomatic of fundamentalist Islam’s crusade against equality for women.”

Rep. Pelosi, D-CA, said the fact that a prominent female politician was targeted has shaken her thinking about the war on terror.

If This Is the Shape of the Conservative Party to Come, Then All I Can Say Is This: Shame on the Tories!

BNP: Labour may be the party of government and so deservedly gets the blame for allowing the creeping Islamification of our country but the leading party of opposition is not far behind Labour in its dhimmitude. The Conservatives want Muslim votes as eagerly as does Labour as it haemorrhages support amongst its traditional base of “middle England”.

The Conservative Muslim Forum, a body set up by David Cameron to advise the Conservatives on Muslim issues has criticised the Government's relationship with Israel and concluded that Iran has "legitimate" reasons for wanting nuclear weapons.

The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give "full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation".

It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain. Conservatives chase Muslim votes (more)

NB: Mark Alexander does not support any party. He is the independent voice of reason.

TIMES UK - Turkish Prime Minister warns US: we will attack Kurdish rebels in Iraq


Turkey will launch military action against Kurdish rebels in northern Iraq despite frantic appeals for restraint from America and Nato, its Prime Minister has told The Times.

Speaking hours before the PKK, the Kurdish Workers’ Party, killed at least 17 more Turkish soldiers yesterday, Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Turkey had urged the US and Iraqi governments repeatedly to expel the separatists but they had done nothing. Turkey’s patience was running out and the country had every right to defend itself, he said. “Whatever is necessary will be done,” he declared in an interview. “We don’t have to get permission from anybody.”

True but as I said earlier, they are liable to start something which ends with the dismemberment of Iraq, and the creation of a new Kurdistan with the USA as it's strongest ally.

Thumbnail image for kurdistan_map.jpg

Mr Erdogan, who begins a two-day visit to Britain today, also offered a bleak assessment of relations between the US and Turkey, a country of huge strategic importance to Washington. He said that a “serious wave of antiAmericanism” was sweeping Turkey, called America’s war in Iraq a failure, and served warning that if the US Congress approved a Bill accusing the Ottoman Turks of genocide against Armenians during the First World War, the US “might lose a very important friend”.

Turkey, as the VALLEY OF THE WOLVES clearly indicated has LONG not been a real friend to the AMERICAN PEOPLE AND THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE, BECAUSE it has clearly LONG harbored the anti American feelings inspired by the ascendant forms of Islam today, so please don't piss on my back and tell me it's raining, Erdogan.

George if you have brains left, signal by beginning the evacuation of Incirlik TODAY. If you don't have such plans, FIRE THE PLANNERS FOR THE MIDDLE EAST, and make the plans TODAY.

What is now going on is HUNTINGTON. The genocide resolution is merely an outgrowth. The PKK is an historical event that was ORDAINED by the Kurds placement for a millennium. This is not a 'blip'

Turkey Breakfast


Turkey is considering an invasion of Iraq because of raids and bombings and murders carried out by the PKK operating from northern Iraq The PKK seeks a coherent national Kurdistan which would end up consisting of land in Turkey (bad for us as far as our 'ally' Turkey goes, but good for us in the case of a VERY strong Kurdistan), land in Syria (good/good), land in Iran (good/good) and land in Iraq (somewhat bad/good). Therefore devoid of any other consideration but American national security interests (for all you 'progressive' liberal neo isolationists, Ron Paul - istas, and paleo conservatives) it would seem on balance a GOOD thing for the PKK to succeed (with other efforts) in bringing about a Kurdistan. Needless to say, an invasion and OCCUPATION of northern Iraq by a Turkey guiltily enraged by an American congress determined to name the genocide of 1915 a genocide, would not only fracture NATO, but bring American and Turkish men to gunpoint with each other.
kurdistan_map.jpg

But according to Turkey, the PKK is a terrorist organization? Let's take a look at three sources, Globalsecurity.org, Federation of American Scientists (fas.org) and the Council on Foreign Relations
Globalsecurity.org:

Partiya Karkeran Kurdistan [PKK]
Kurdistan Workers' Party
People's Defense Force

Established in 1974 as a Marxist-Leninist insurgent group primarily composed of Turkish Kurds, by the late 1990s the PKK had moved beyond rural-based insurgent activities to include urban terrorism. The PKK sought to set up an independent Kurdish state in southeastern Turkey, where there is a predominantly Kurdish population.

Geography, politics and history have conspired to render 30 million Kurds the largest stateless people in the Middle East. The Government of Turkey has long denied the Kurdish population, located largely in the southeast, basic political, cultural, and linguistic rights.

Since 1984 the separatist PKK waged a violent terrorist insurgency in southeast Turkey, directed against both security forces and civilians, almost all of them Kurds, whom the PKK accuses of cooperating with the State. The government of Turkey in turn waged an intense campaign to suppress PKK terrorism, targeting active PKK units as well as persons they believe support or sympathize with the PKK. In the process, both government forces and PKK terrorists committed human rights abuses against each other and noncombatants. According to the Government, from 1984 through November 1997, 26,532 PKK members, 5,185 security force members, and 5,209 civilians lost their lives in the fighting.

The PKK committed numerous abuses against civilians in northern Iraq throughout 1997. For example, on August 4, five persons were reportedly kidnaped from the village of Gunda Jour by a PKK band. Iraqi Kurds reported that on October 23, a PKK unit killed 14 civilians (10 of them children) and wounded 9 others in attacks on the villages of Korka, Chema, Dizo, and Selki. On December 13, seven Assyrian civilians reportedly were ambushed and killed near the village of Mangeesh. Many villagers in Dohuk and Irbil provinces, particularly those from isolated areas, were reported to have abandoned their homes and temporarily relocated to cities and lager towns to escape PKK attacks.

Abdullah OCALAN, was captured in Kenya in February 1999. The PKK observed a unilateral cease-fire since September 1999, although there have been occasional clashes between Turkish military units and some of the 4,000-5,000 armed PKK militants, most of whom currently are encamped in northern Iraq.
