The News Keeps Gettting Better And Better

But not for us counter-jihadists.

According to this article in the January 4, 2008 edition of the Washington Post (hat-tip to Eleanor Duckwall's Spotlight, where I found the following:
In an age of spy satellites, security cameras and an Internet that stores every keystroke, terrorism suspects are using simple, low-tech tricks to cloak their communications, making life difficult for authorities who had hoped technology would give them the upper hand.

Across Europe, al-Qaeda operatives and sympathizers are avoiding places that they assume are bugged or monitored, such as mosques and Islamic bookshops, counterterrorism experts said. In several cases, suspects have gone back to nature -- leaving the cities on camping trips or wilderness expeditions so they can discuss plots without fear of being overheard.

[...]

Overall, terrorist cells around the world have become noticeably more skilled at avoiding detection, European counterterrorism officials and analysts said in interviews....

I'm getting mighty weary of being such a doomsayer, in this the first week of 2008.

The Murder Of John Granville

You can be forgiven if you don't immediately recognize the name in the title of this posting. The story hasn't received a whole lot of attention. In fact, if the story appeared on the newspaper's front page or as a lead story of a television newscast (as the story should have), in the middle of the media's feeding frenzy over the Iowa caususes, I certainly didn't see it.

Anyway, John Granville was the U.S. Ambassador to Sudan. According to this article, an Al Qaeda-linked group is boasting of their hand in his death:
Saturday, January 5th 2008, 4:00 AM

WASHINGTON - U.S. counterterror officials were caught by surprise Friday when an Al Qaeda-linked group in Sudan claimed its goons assassinated U.S. diplomat John Granville this week to "defend their religion."

Despite sending six FBI counterterror agents to Khartoum, Sudan, to probe the murder, the claim of responsibility on a credible jihadist forum was unexpected by many senior U.S. officials.

Most assumed the U.S. Agency for International Development officer died in a burst of random street crime, sources said. "This is now getting a lot of attention" inside the intelligence community, a U.S. official told the Daily News.

Jihadists calling themselves "Ansar al-Tawhid" boasted on a password-protected Internet site, Al-Ekhlaas, that the "global infidels" were slain so they couldn't "raise the cross over the land of Sudan," according to the private SITE Intelligence Group.

Granville, 33, of Buffalo, and his driver were killed in Khartoum on New Year's Day while driving home from a party. The little-known group said it "carried out an operation of killing the American diplomat and his Sudanese driver who sold his religion for few benefits of life."

Osama Bin Laden has urged jihadists to fight the U.S. and UN in Sudan's Darfur region. This week's slaying mirrors the 2002 murder of U.S. diplomat Lawrence Foley in Jordan, whose killers included the late Al Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi....
Empty bragging on the part of "Ansar al-Tawhid"? Or have AQ-like groups sprung up all over Northern Africa? The latter is happening, according to Dr. Walid Phares, whom I heard warn of just such a new terrorist push at America's Truth Forum's First Symposium On Terror in April 2006.

2008 surely is off to a rocky start. Too much is happening in favor of the worldwide jihad.

Daniel Pipes: Geert Wilders New Film On Islam Likely To Cause Riots

From Daniel Pipes:


By my count, there have been six major episodes in modern times in which Muslims rioted and killed in protest to some Western-based person making comments about Islam:

1989 – Salman Rushdie publishes his novel, The Satanic Verses.

1997 – The U.S. Supreme Court refuses to remove a 1930s frieze showing Muhammad as lawgiver.

2002 – The American evangelical leader Jerry Falwell calls Muhammad a "terrorist."

2005 – An incorrect story in Newsweek, reporting that American interrogators at Guantánamo Bay, "in an attempt to rattle suspects, flushed a Qur'an down a toilet."

February 2006 – The Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten publishes twelve cartoons of Muhammad.

September 2006 – Pope Benedict XVI quotes a Byzantine emperor's views that what is new in Islam is "evil and inhuman."

Every one of these cases shares one particular feature: the persons who set off the ruckus had little to no idea that their views would lead to riots and deaths. Muslim disapproval, yes, not upheaval.

That's about to change with the expected television premier on January 25 of an un-named film by a leading Dutch politician Geert Wilders dealing with the Koran. Wilders in the past has compared it to Hitler's Mein Kampf and wants it banned; the film will likely make arguments along these lines: "With this film I'm trying to show not only in words but also images exactly what I mean," he says.

Unlike the British, American, Danish governments or the Vatican, the Dutch government has prepared. It has adopted a two-track policy of (1) trying to stop the screening and, should that fail, (2) getting ready for crisis mode. An article in today's Volkskrant, "Vrees voor rellen rond Koran-film van Wilders" (translated as "Fear of riots over Wilders' Koran film") provides some details. First, the government is trying to shut things down:

The Justice Department is investigating whether anything can be done to prevent the film from airing.

When it was leaked that Wilders was coming out with an anti-Koran film, three ministers warned him of the possible consequences.

Should this not succeed, preparatory steps are underway:

Security around Wilders, which was already heavy, is being beefed up.

The Amsterdam police have had interviews with imams and other influential persons in the Muslim community this month to prepare for their reactions. A scenario is being prepared for major public order problems. Similar measures are being taken in the Hague and Utrecht.

Investigations are also underway to see whether Wilders will have to acquire a specially secured residence and whether his fellow party members will require security.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has since informed all of its diplomatic posts … to explain to other countries that the Cabinet has distanced itself from the film.

Muslims Warn UK About Intervention Into Arranged Marriages

Yes, you read that right. The Muslims, who we need to remember emigrated into the UK, are warning their host country:


A plan to allow teachers, social workers, local councils and women's rights groups is being discussed as a means to stop forced "arranged" marriages in primarily the muslim Pakistani and Bangladeshi UK population. The change would allow the teachers, etc to precipitate a "forced marriage protection order":

"Teachers, social workers, women’s rights groups and local councils may be given the power to stop forced marriages, under government plans to protect vulnerable teenagers.

Ministers are preparing a list of third parties who would have the authority to go to court to try to prevent families from forcing children into marriage in Britain and abroad.

The plan is aimed at helping those who are too young, too unwilling or too frightened to go to court to stop their families from marrying them out.

So what is the response of the of so called "moderate muslims" that we are repeatedly told live amongst us? Aren't they pleased that the government and social organisations could prevent the needless suffering of a young muslim woman being forced into marriage?

‘Protect arranged weddings’

Muslim leaders have given warning against “malicious” intervention by third parties into legitimate arranged marriages.

The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) has welcomed plans to allow third parties to take legal steps to protect young people from being forced to marry a person. But it has urged the Government to ensure that cultural norms are safeguarded. Those given the new powers should receive training, the council said.

Muslims and other minority groups in Britain with a tradition of arranged marriage say that the issue is not one of faith, but of culture.


Yes, it is a matter of culture. A culture of slavery enabled by Islam, which believes that women are the property of men:


With regards to Muslim behavior toward women, let’s go to Islam’s holy book—the Qur’an. The following are but, a few verses pertaining to the treatment of women in Islam:

▪ Surah 4:15 “If any one of your women is guilty of lewdness...confine them until death claims them.” (This Surah is also a warning to women that the Islamic god Allah is not forgiving when it comes to them and they will suffer death. But, note that the very next verse does forgive men for aberrant sexual behaviors.)

▪ Surah 4:16 “If two men among you commit indecency (sodomy) punish them both. If they repent and mend their ways, let them be. Allah is forgiving and merciful.”

▪ Surah 4:34 “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them.”

Men are also allowed to falsely testify against their wives—with little to no proof whatsoever—and have said lies believed by Islam’s Shari’a court system. The Qur’an states:

“As for those who accuse their wives but have no witnesses except themselves, let the testimony of one of them be four testimonies…” – Surah 24:6-7


IBA friend Revere Rides Again comments:

Force marriage ("arranged weddings" or any other euphemism notwithstanding) is nothing more than institutionalized RAPE. So according to the MCB, British authorities and citizens are to be prevented from taking legal steps to protect these women from rape even when they know the time and place said rape will take place? And who is going to be officiating and giving the rapist his blessing?

Why is it wrong to rape a woman but a cultural tradition to force her to have sexual intercourse for the rest of her life with a man who is not her choice? And why is it that so often the oppression and degradation of women comes under the column heading of "culture" instead of "criminal activity" where it belongs?


It reminds me of how police who are called to the scene of domestic violence are often told by the perpetrator that "It's a family matter."

Storm Track Disinformation: Terrorism by the Numbers

It’s obvious that Dr. Raja Muzaffar Bhat has not heard the truism that not all Muslims are terrorists but the majority of terrorists are Muslims. By ignoring this obvious fact, he goes on to do what every moral equivalence pin head has tried to do over the last several years. Show that Muslims aren’t the only ones who commit terror and if they do, it’s a form of freedom fighting.

Muslim terrorism is just another form of Western propaganda, he says.

Homosexuality In Iran


The report below is, as yet, unconfirmed. But knowing what I do about Iran, the method of execution comes as no surprise.

Western bleeding-heart types, those who lament methods of execution in the United States, take note!


From this source, not one of my regular reads (Gotta love those Google alerts!):
LONDON, January 4, 2008 – Unconfirmed reports coming from Iran suggest that two youths are facing brutal execution in the southern city of Shiraz.

According to the Iranian official Quds Daily, two youths, identified as Tayab and Yazdan, had their execution confirmed by the Supreme Court on Wednesday and regional justices are preparing the execution.

Also included charged in the same case were four others who are to receive 100 lashes each.

The ages of the two to be executed are not given, but they were convicted, according to Quds, of “kidnapping, mugging and raping two university students”. The gender of the two students is not known.

Quds reports that the executions will be carried out by putting each youth in a sack and throwing them off the top of a cliff and into a ravine.

This form of execution under Shariah law is normally reserved for those convicted of gay offences (lavat). But there is no mention of ‘lavat’ in the Quds report of this case.

If a person survives this execution, then he is hanged.

Iran’s shari’a-based penal code defines ‘lavat’ as penetrative and non-penetrative sexual acts between men. Penetrative sex carries the death penalty, while non-penetrative sexual acts carry lashes for the first three convictions and then death on the fourth.

Any form of rape should be severely punished. But execution – and such a barbaric execution? Would this type of execution have been handed down if the two victims were women?

There are a lot of unanswered questions. But whether this is another “gay case” or not, human rights groups are this weekend trying to get more information.
Do the methods of execution spark any memory of the Spanish Inquisition?

Islam, forever stuck in the Middle Ages. At least, it looks that way to me.

Some morning Iran ..chapter one

Bahrain hit by 'organized' Shi'ite riots likely sparked by Iran
GERTZ: ABU DHABI — Bahrain has been torn by the worst Shi'ite rioting in years. Bahraini special forces, using tear gas and rubber bullets, confronted thousands of Shi'ites during the Id Al Adha holiday last week in Manama.

Young Shi'ite rioters carry an injured man after a clash with the security forces in Bahrain.
"We believe the riots were organized by foreign elements," a Bahraini security source said. Officials said Iran was thought to have inspired the riots.

The Shi'ite opposition said Bahraini security forces stormed a mosque in Manama on Dec. 21. The opposition said the Interior Ministry launched a crackdown that included the arrest of opposition leaders.

"They were faced brutally by the Special Forces, which entered the mosque while pursuing the rest who fled towards the nearby Water Garden park," the Haq Movement for Liberty and Democracy said. "Tear gas was fired on the people in the park."

The Interior Ministry said police tried to stop a rampage by rioters. The ministry said the rioters torched a police vehicle and destroyed property.

"After following legal procedures, they were arrested and transferred to the general prosecution office," the ministry said.

The riots were said to have taken place nearly every night last week. Officials said the riots intensified after a protester died of tear gas inhalation during a battle with police. On Dec. 21, Bahraini security forces arrested seven opposition members.

Bahrain contains the U.S. Fifth Fleet and naval element of U.S. Central Command. The U.S. embassy has warned of continued violence in the kingdom.

Obambi - Watch Your Back!

I’m not a political pundit and this is outside my blogs theme but I couldn’t resist.

From Hot Air:

Obama jumps out to the early lead and congratulations to him for that. His win represents something genuinely new and is the first sign of the end of the Clinton era. Hopefully he’ll get to savor his historic victory for a day or two before the Clinton ex machina tries to mow him down. He’s facing them alone now. The next week or two could go like this for Obambi.


You don’t screw with Mother Clinton.

Academic Field or Preventive Political Tool to Balance Injustice?

From Roncesvalles:

While I am writing this, the spat between the German political scientist Matthias Küntzel and Andrew Bostom has acquired some notoriety. Pamela Geller offers at Atlas Shrugs an excellent overview.

In his book "Hitler’s Legacy: Islamic Antisemitism in the Middle East," Küntzel argues that contemporary Islamic antisemitism is largely due to the infamous Hitler-Mufti connection (I have posted about it, for example, here, here and here) and its ongoing influence in today' Islamic world. Bostom accuses him to fail to examine easily accessible sources which show that Islamic antisemitism, with Koranic and entirely non-Western motifs, was rampant throughout the 19th century in Egypt.

Reactions to Küntzel's failure to acknowledge those sources and Bostom's reasoning are ranging from "one scatches one's head" to "he (Küntzel) must be a masochist".

I have posted some of the thoughts below at the comment sections of several blogs, so I thought why not put it up here as well.

I am amazed at the fact that Küntzel’s reaction (or the lack thereof) causes so much amazement. If one takes his political affiliation into consideration, it's not all that amazing anymore.

Küntzel is a member of the “Anti-German” political left. The Anti-Germans appeared as a distinct political group in the early Nineties as a response to the racist attacks on foreigners and general chauvinism following German reunification. The basic creed of the Anti-Germans includes solidarity with Israel and American foreign policy and a critique of mainstream left anti-capitalist views, specifically the anti-globalisation movement, which are (rightfully) considered structurally antisemitic.

All Anti-German efforts are exclusively focused on fighting antisemitism. I don't have much of a head for political theory but let me try to explain it like that: Anti-Germans think that capital and labour have overcome their antagonism and are focusing their mutual efforts now on destroying the group historically identified with the “greedy side of capitalism” (”raffender Kapitalismus”) — i.e. the Jews. By destroying the Jews, capital and labour allow capitalism to survive. This implies that the working classes can’t be trusted anymore and the Anti-Germans close that gap by a bit of early Marxist theory, whereby first more capitalism is needed until the state of communism can be reached, specifically in underdeveloped (Arab-, Islamic-, fascist-) regimes. This, lo and behold, resolves the problem of “Western imperialism” as well: More of it is needed because antisemitism emerges primarily under conditions of stunted capitalist development and Western capitalism (i.e. the USA and their allies in their “war against terrorism”) thus deserves support.

My own take on that is, that, while a lot of the historical analysis of the Anti-Germans has merit, for example that antisemitism is an integral part of German (and European) culture, their conclusions are weird and speak of a self-hatred I find disturbing.

Understandably in a way, “Anti-Germanism” is an ideology with a lot of allure for those Germans who are decent enough to see antisemitism for the evil it is, yet who can not face giving up their leftist positions. However, it should not be overlooked that here we have a totally fixed world-view, almost bordering, I think, on the cult-like, and if Küntzel blames, in that spirit, the age-old Arab antisemitism on the Germans because achnowledging an equal share in the historic guilt would -- to him -- mean relativizing the German guilt (and gets acclaim for it), historians have a credibility problem.

The fact that Hitler and the Muslims were quite adequate in their genocidal Jew hatred, that maybe even the Mufti might have influenced Hitler more than vice versa, is quite well documented. This blog entry contains a lot of information and leads to further serious sources, which must have been, if this little blogger got it, available to Küntzel as well. But if one considers such facts as something that might be used to relativize the German guilt (and it might indeed), one might easily, consciously or subconsciously, overlook it and then historiography has lost any credibility as an academic field and can consider itself a preventive political tool to balance injustice.

ALERT! BLOGGER TO BE ARRESTED!


The terrible news about the upcoming arrest of Lionheart UK reached my inbox in the wee hours of Friday, January 4, 2008:
Hi AOW

I just wanted to let you know that I am being arrested by the British police because of my blog.
As Pamela stated in her post on the topic at Atlas Shrugs,
[Lionheart] has been a warrior on the war on the jihad in the UK and exposed the drug running that funded Islamic jihad in Britain and posted on the tsunami of sharia enveloping his beloved country. The Brits have submitted to Islam and they mean to shut down anyone who speaks for freedom, justice and liberty. Silencing the daring truth tellers...."Hate speech" legislation is the club the political elites will wield to club us into submission.
From Lionheart's first post on the charges against him:
I am currently out of the Country and on my return home to England I am going to be arrested by British detectives on suspicion of Stirring up Racial Hatred by displaying written material" contrary to sections 18(1) and 27(3) of the Public Order Act 1986.

This charge if found guilty carries a lengthy prison sentence, more than what most paedophiles and rapists receive, and all for writing words of truth about the barbarity that is living in the midst of our children, which threatens the very future of our Country.

What has become of my homeland, the land my forefathers fought and died for on the battlefields of the world when one of their children is forced into the position of facing years in prison for standing up for what is right and just within British society.

[...]

This arrest and potential imprisonment is what now awaits me at the start of 2008, and this is what now awaits every other blogger in Great Britain who writes the truth about the modern war that is now unfolding against us, our children and the British homeland by the State (Labour government) sanctioned and protected enemy that is living in our midst - The Islamic Kingdom.
Go read it all. And, for as long as Lionheart can continue to post, read the subsequent posts as well by visiting new posts at the top of his home page.

COPY THIS POST AND/OR LINK BACK TO IT. SEND OUT EMAILS TO YOUR FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTENANCES. GET THE WORD OUT AS TO WHAT'S HAPPENING TO LION HEART UK!

Additional information: The Gathering Storm Radio Show 's interview with Lion Heart UK (first half hour). We plan another interview with Lion Heart on January 11, 2008. Listen to the voice which is about to be silenced!

Take A Raincheck On This Folks!

The blogosphere is going crazy over a posting on this site where someone called Lionheart, based in the UK has stated that he is about to be arrested under the “Race and religious hatred bill” for something he has written on his blog site.

On the comments on his site he has been advised to flee to the US and claim refugee status, others have said that the US should break off relations with the UK and other nonsense statements.

I would advise caution at this stage. I am sure I read somewhere that the bill had not been enacted and indeed a google search does not bring up any date for the enactment of this piece of legislation. As for the public order act, then whatever has been written would have to be really heavy stuff, not just the sort of things we bloggers write about. From a local government website I found this:

”The Bill is aiming to ensure freedom of speech and the right to practise religion without fear are protected by maintaining the right to engage in debate about religion and providing a clear difference between criticism of a religion and the criminal act of inciting hatred against person(s) on the basis of their religion.

The legislation will not prevent people telling jokes about or making fun of religions, causing offence to followers of a religion, trying to convert somebody to one’s own religion or urging followers of a different religion to cease practising theirs or expressing antipathy or dislike of particular religions or their followers.”

Let’s wait for more information on this one. I know that we all like to dummify our dhimmi politicians but England has a very long established justice system. Hell, they can't even deport convicted terrorists.

The first case under such a bill is unlikely to succeed in my view, they couldn't get Nick Griffin on racial hatred under the public order act for saying that Islam was a cruel and wicked religion - or words to that effect.

If anyone can find a source that states the enactment date of the race and religious hatred bill I would be grateful. In the meantime maybe it's a case of I don't want to believe this and it would be a good thing if I am right.

The Islamic Element To The Killing In Kenya

I should have known. Almost anywhere in the world, any violence which is being perpetrated, probably has something to do with Islam. And, in Kenya, yes, it has something to do with Islam:


When Raila Odinga lost the presidential election last week (12/27) to Mwai Kibaki, he claimed the vote was rigged, whereupon his tribal followers went on murderous rampages such as in the town of Eldoret, where on New Years Day dozens of people were burned to death in a church set on fire.

Throughout Kenya, hundreds of people have been politically murdered in the last few days.

Kenya's 37 million people are divided up into over three dozen tribes and sub-tribes, but the two dominant ones are Kikuyu and Luo. Kenyan politics since independence in 1963 has essentially been a duke-out between them.

The father of Kenyan independence and president until 1978 was Jomo Kenyatta, a Kikuyu. His main political opponent was Oginga Odinga, known as "OO," a Luo and Raila's father. While Kenyatta was pro-West and sided with America in the Cold War, OO was a Communist who was aided and supported by the Soviet Union.

That's why Raila went to school in East Germany (born in 1945, he graduated from Magdeburg University in 1970), and named his first-born son after Fidel Castro.

Thus it likely won't shock you to learn that Raila has now made a deal for support from the Soviets' successors as world-champion enemies of the West and democratic freedoms: Moslem fundamentalists.

The Evangelical Alliance of Kenya has posted on its website a photograph copy of a Memorandum of Understanding, dated and signed on August 29, 2007, between Raila Odinga and Shiekh Abdullah Abdi, chairman of the National Muslim Leaders Forum of Kenya.

It pledges the support of Kenyan Moslems for Raila's election. In return, as President of Kenya, Raila agrees to 14 actions, listed a) through n) on page two. Read them all, and be sure you're sitting down.

Here's a sample:

b) Within 6 months re-write the Constitution of Kenya to recognize Shariah as the only true law sanctioned by the Holy Quran for Muslim declared regions.

c) With immediate effect dismiss the Commissioner of Police who has allowed himself to be used by heathens and Zionists to oppress the Kenyan Muslim community.

g) Within one year facilitate the establishment of a Shariah court in every Kenyan divisional headquarters. [Note: everywhere in Kenya, not just in "Muslim declared regions."]

UN Bans Criticism Of Islam

From the Telegraph:


It didn’t attract much notice, but the General Assembly of the United Nations ended the year by passing a disgusting resolution protecting Islam from criticism of its human rights violations.

Lots of non-Muslims voted for it – a sign that more and more corrupt Third World governments are identifying with the ideology of Islam, even if they don't accept its doctrines.

The resolution goes under the innocuous title "Combating defamation of religions" – but the text singles out "Islam and Muslims in particular". It expresses "deep concern that Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism".

Wrongly associated? As of today, terrorists have carried out 10,277 separate attacks since September 11, 2001. They all belong to the same religion, and it ain’t Methodism.

The resolution (which of course makes no mention of the vicious persecution of Christians) was pushed through by the 57-nation Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which has been agitating for it for years. Naturally every Muslim country was among the 108 supporters, but it’s interesting to note how other countries lined up.

Cuba, China, North Korea and Zimbabwe all voted the same way. I’ll give you one guess.



Islam does abuse human rights. Anyone who knows anything about Islam knows that homosexuals, apostates, and adulterers are to be put to death under it's law-code.

In my opinion, Islam is a religion of death and destruction similar to Moloch-worship described in the Bible. Muslims the world over are happy to watch their children go to their death in suicide bombings for the cause of Islam. This is, in my opinion, child-sacrifice. That's what Moloch worship was all about.

It seems to me, the UN ought to ban Islam, instead of criticism of its tenets.

There, I criticized Islam. I guess the UN will have to come and put me in jail.

The Killings In Dallas

Related to this act of barbarism right here in the United States, the following is a comment that I found via Velvet Hammer:



maestro
January 3, 2008 at 8:35 pm
I had the pleasure of educating one of the sisters in my class, along with her classmates. She had told me one time that her father expected her and her sister to marry a Muslim who resided in Egypt. She had the idea that right after graduation, he would take her there immediately to find a husband. Being only a 10th grader at the time, I didn’t really think she was too serious because she always had such a happy demeanor along with a warm smile. Both her and her sister were two very intelligent girls who really could have had a bright future. I hope they nail the bastard.


source of comment
Not only "nail the bastard," but expose the misogyny of Islam!

From what I've most recently heard, Yaser Said, the girls' father, is still on the loose. Who's harboring this murderer? The Muslim community in the Dallas area?

British Muslims support Red Ken Livingstone

No surprise, really, considering what a viciously prejudiced coward he is. From the Guardian (via Hot Air Headlines):
Prominent Muslim organisations and individuals have pledged to back Ken Livingstone as mayor of London, saying it is in the "best interest" of Muslims to vote for him in this year's elections on May 1.

A statement, published today in full on the Guardian's website, praises Livingstone for his continued support of a multicultural society and for protecting Muslim communities against racism and Islamophobia.

The 63 signatories include Mohammed Ali, the chief executive of the Islam Channel, which claims to have an audience of millions, Professor Tariq Ramadan and Dilwar Hussain from the London Muslim Centre, part of the East London Mosque.

They said: "His stands and policies have constantly championed justice in the Middle East ... freedom for the Palestinians and withdrawal of occupying troops from Iraq; a rare trait of modern-day public figures. He has enhanced London's standing in the world and helped improve the lives of all of the city's communities.

"We pledge to continue our support for the mayor on all levels possible in order to secure his staying in office for a third term."
And tragically, there's every chance that Red Ken will win a third term. And he'll return favor by subverting the dhimmis and helping to promote the Islamists of London just as much as Tony Blair did when he was prime minister.

66,000 Women Have Had Their Clits Cut In Britain

Women are far too horny. We men just can't control them. Therefore, we've gotta chop off their clitorises. It's the only way we can keep society in order:


Such is the secrecy that surrounds the practice that even those aware that it occurs in large swathes of Africa and Asia will be shocked to learn that it is prevalent in Britain.

During a highly disturbing, four-month investigation, however, we uncovered evidence that thousands of British-African girls, in towns and cities throughout the country, have been forcibly “cut”. By conservative estimates, 66,000 women and girls living in Britain have been mutilated. This figure, accepted by the Metropolitan Police, came in a report by a volunteer organisation funded by the Department of Health and carried out with academics from the London School of Tropical Hygiene and the City University.

And thousands more girls are at imminent risk as families club together to fly professional “cutters” from Africa to Britain.

These women “elders” perform the crude operation for up to £40 a time, often on kitchen tables or floors, without anaesthetic, using filthy, blunt knives, razor blades or scalpels.

Many readers will be distressed by our report, but this practice is an abomination which has no place anywhere, let alone in a civilised society, and if it is to be expunged then this is a story that must be told.


The more we mutilate, the less lunacy will prevail in our culture.

Men Have Authority Over Women

That's right! It's in the Koran:


"Men have authority over women because God has made the one superior to the other, and because men spend their wealth to maintain them. Good women are obedient. They guard their unseen parts because God has guarded them. As for those among you who fear disobedience, admonish them and send them to beds apart and beat them.” Sura 4:34

Storm Track Infiltration: Are These the Final Days of Great Britain?

Adrian Morgan wrote an in depth disturbing piece on Great Britain entitled Britain's Lessons in Cultural Suicide that is worth reading in its entirety. Over the last few years we’ve seen the British Lion slowly being neutered by political correctness and multiculturalism that has left her with the inability to act when even her once proud navy, that defended the shores of Britain from the Spanish Amada, was shammed by Iran when that country boarded, captured and humiliated a British patrol boat crew this year.

I’ll just highlight some of the paragraphs in the article that show the extent of British dhimmitude and the loathing for their culture that has developed over a short several years.

She open her article with this example of how far down the road of cultural self- hatred Britain has come.

Useful Idiots

I cannot understand why we have useful idiots in the West. Surely anyone with a just a couple of brain cells can see that Islam is not a good thing. If the Muslims are happy with their lot in Muslim countries, fine, but why would any non Muslim want to encourage them to propagate their vile, barbaric beliefs in the West?

It doesn’t take more than a minute or two to discover that Islam is not a religion of peace, it would only take a page or three from the Quran to confirm that truth. Then there’s the history. I mean the real history, not the airbrushed version. The history of the conquests, massacres, genocides, slavery, cruelty, domination, subjugation and all of those labels that can be truthfully applied to Islam.

One of the prime useful idiots is Ken Livingstone who has been praised by Muslim leaders for “his continued support of a multicultural society and for protecting Muslim communities against racism and Islamophobia”.

So who is there to protect the rest of us against Muslim suicide bombers and the extremists who promise to Islamise our country and impose sharia law? Is that why we are described as Islamophobes? Are we, the ordinary people who are concerned about the threat to our very freedom and democracy the one’s that Livingstone is protecting the Muslims from?

Surely the people of London will vote the Livingstone idiot out of office at the mayoral elections. Perhaps not, he only does it for votes and they will vote him back. London today, England tomorrow, so to speak. The man should be hanged for treason.

When ex-Muslims, who have experienced the horrors of a full blown Islamic regime, like this Iranian exile, we should listen especially when they warn us of the useful idiots:

Muslims are taught deception and lying in the Quran itself—something that Muhammad practiced during his life whenever he found it expedient. Successive Islamic rulers and leaders have done the same. Khomeini, the founder of the 1979 Iranian Revolution, for instance, rallied the people under the banner of democracy. All along his support for democracy was not a commitment of an honest man, but a ruse. As soon as he gathered the reins of power, Khomeini went after the Useful Idiots of his time with vengeance. These best children of Iran, having been thoroughly deceived and used by the crafty phony populist-religionist, had to flee the country to avoid the fate of tens of thousands who were imprisoned or executed by the double-crossing imam.

Almost three decades after the tragic Islamic Revolution of 1979, the suffocating rule of Islam casts its death-bearing pall over Iranians. A proud people with enviable heritage is being systematically purged of its sense of identity and forced to think and behave like the barbaric and intolerant Muslims.

Iranians who had always treated women with equality, for instance, have seen them reduced by the stone-age clergy to sub-human status of Islamic teaching. Any attempt by the women of Iran to counter the misogynist rule of Muhammad’s mullahs is mercilessly suppressed. Women are beaten, imprisoned, raped and killed just as men are slaughtered without due process or mercy.

The lesson is clear. Beware of the Useful Idiots who live in liberal democracies. Knowingly or unknowingly, they serve as the greatest volunteer and effective soldiers of Islam. They pave the way for the advancement of Islam and they will assuredly be among the very first victims of Islam as soon as it assumes power.

Why can’t we bring back hanging for traitors? After all Ken Livingstone would be among the first to be hanged in Trafalgar Square - by means of a crane, as in Iran - when he achieves his wish for an Islamic state here in England.

Honor Killings In Dallas?


The story of the murders of Amina and Sarah Said in the greater Dallas-Texas area is still developing. Are the murders of these girls "honor killings"? Early reports seem to indicate so. From the Chesler Chronicles, on January 3, 2007:
Just yesterday, an Egyptian Arab Muslim father in Dallas, Texas allegedly shot his two beautiful teenage daughters to death because he disapproved of their American-style ways. Their names were Amina and Sarah Said and their father’s name was Abdul Said. The girls looked sassy and full of life; they looked like Dallas teenagers. They were 17 and 18 years old and their friends considered them “geniuses.” Abdul was a taxi driver. (In parts of Europe, taxi drivers are known to aid and abet honor murders).

Perhaps how Amina and Sarah dressed, and how they thought, shamed their father Abdul. He was no longer in control of his women—a mark of shame which provoked his need to kill them. Perhaps their flowering sexuality enraged him because it made him desire them—and from this he concluded that other men might desire them too and if he could not have them, no man could.

The blogs and the local Texas media (the Dallas Morning News) were all over this. Hot Air, Atlas Shrugs, Jihad Watch, were too. The only national coverage of this story was contained in the Washington Times. SEE HERE Why did the national and international media so far shy clear of this story? Perhaps they chose to dig deeper first or maybe they were waiting for an arrest to be made. But one also wonders: Were they afraid of being accused of “Islamophobia” if they reported the truth? Did they not want to use the word “Arab” or “Muslim” lest they be attacked as “racists”?...

Dallas taxi driving Muslim murders two daughters

Just shortly following the news of the murder of the Pakistani teenager in Canada, Aqsa Parvez, we now find another horror story about a Muslim father, Yaser Abdul Said, a taxi driver in Dallas, who murdered his two teenage daughters. One problem though is that his religion isn't mentioned:
Police continued their search today for a 50-year-old Lewisville father whose 17- and 18-year-old daughters were found shot to death in an abandoned taxi Tuesday evening in Irving, police said.

Police said they suspect Yaser Abdel Said may have shot Sarah Yaser Said, 17 and Amina Yaser Said, 18 and let them for dead inside his taxi.

Police had not released a motive for the shooting. A 911 cell phone call, believed to have been made by one of the teens at about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, alerted police to the shootings, but the caller was unable to tell police where she was and officers were dispatched to the area of North O'Connor Boulevard and Riverside Drive, officials said. Officers were unable to locate anyone.

An hour later, a witness reported seeing a suspicious vehicle in the 200 block of Las Colinas Boulevard in the parking lot of the Omni Mandalay Hotel at Las Colinas.

"Someone walked by the vehicle and saw them inside," said David Tull, an Irving police spokesman.

Officers found the two sisters dead in that vehicle.

Investigators believe Yaser Abdel Said abandoned his taxi in the parking lot and left the scene.

Police described Yaser Abdel Said as about 6-foot-2, weighing about 180 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black turtleneck shirt/sweater, a brown coat and tan pants.

Yaser Abdel Said is believed armed with a handgun, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Irving police at 972-721-2518.
A correspondent to Debbie Schlussel wrote to the Star-Telegram reporter about his omission of any mention of the creep's religion, and the journalist acted very upset. Whatever for? That he and the paper had no intention of mentioning the possibilities of motivation? Pity these MSM journalists are so dishonest.

Update: more from Hot Air. The Dallas/Fort Worth FOX channel (also via Hot Air) did a report on this in which they boldly acknowledged the monster's Islamist background and asked if he did it out of "honor". Interestingly enough, he is a member of the Islamic Society of North America, which, like CAIR, is also an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation trial.

Defeating Jihad With Public Ridicule

Someone just sent me this, and I thought it was pretty good. It's written by Ali Sina:

Muslims committed the huge blunder of revealing their vulnerability [all the rioting over a cartoon]. Now the world knows what hurts them. When you find your opponent's weak spot, it is exactly where you want to hit him. If Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated.

Muslim psychology is all pomposity and bravado. I give you my word that if Islam is ridiculed publicly and systematically, it will be defeated. Shame is a great motivator as well as deterrent. Do not underestimate the power of ridicule. This is serious stuff not a laughing matter.

How much ridicule is enough? Until it hurts. The pain of shame must become bigger than the comfort of clinging to this false fetish. When you see their eyes are popping out of their eyeballs, their veins bulging in their necks, foam forming at their mouths, and they are ready to explode, you know that the remedy is working. Give them more. They will either die of heart attacks or they will come to their senses and recover from this insanity.

Every one of us must become a cyberwarrior and mock Muhammad, Islam and the Muslims. Use your talent. Draw cartoons based on the hadith and the Quran. You can find tons of ridiculous stuff in these books to lampoon. Write articles, lyrics, jokes, plays, do whatever you can to ridicule Muhammad the prophet pretender and Muslims. Don't heed to their howls and cries.

What he suggests is along the same lines as what Pastorius suggests in An Immodest Proposal.

For bloggers, it is fairly easy to ridicule Islamofascism. I wonder how a non-blogger can do it? Maybe anyone with a suggestion about that could put it in the comments on this post.

Pope To Meet With Muslim Leaders

From Breitbart:


VATICAN CITY (AP) - Catholic and Muslim representatives plan to meet in Rome in the spring to start a "historic" dialogue between the faiths after relations were soured by Pope Benedict XVI's 2006 comments about Islam and holy war, Vatican officials said.

Benedict proposed the encounter as part of his official response to an open letter sent to him and other Christian leaders in October by 138 Muslim scholars from around the world. The letter urged Christians and Muslims to develop their common ground of belief in one God.

Three representatives of the Muslim scholars will come to Rome in February or March to prepare for the meeting, the head of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, told the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano this weekend.

He did not give a date for the larger meeting, except to say it would take place in the spring.

The agenda, he said, would cover three main topics: respect for the dignity of each person, interreligious dialogue based on reciprocal understanding, and instruction of tolerance among the young.

"The meeting with a delegation of some of the 138 Muslims, planned for Rome next spring, is in a certain sense historic," Tauran was quoted by L'Osservatore as saying.

Benedict angered Muslims with a speech on faith and reason in September 2006 in Germany in which he cited a medieval text that characterized some of the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad as "evil and inhuman," particularly "his command to spread by the sword the faith."

The pope later said he was "deeply sorry" over the reactions to his remarks and that they did not reflect his own opinions. The Vatican has been working ever since to improve relations with moderate Islam.

Thirty-eight Muslim scholars initially wrote to Benedict soon after his 2006 speech, thanking him for his clarifications and his calls for dialogue. But the Vatican never officially responded to that initiative, and a year later the number of signatories of a new letter had swelled to 138.

In the letter, the Muslim scholars, muftis and intellectuals draw parallels between Islam and Christianity and their common focus on love for God and love for one's neighbor. They also note that such a focus is found in Judaism.

"As Muslims and in obedience to the Holy Quran, we ask Christians to come together with us on the common essentials of our two religions," the letter says. "Let this common ground be the basis of all future interfaith dialogue between us."

Noting that Christians and Muslims make up an estimated 55 percent of the world population, the scholars conclude that improving relations is the best way to bring peace to the world.

Church leaders and analysts have praised the initiative, and Benedict met with one of the 138 signatories in October, when they both attended an interfaith peace meeting in Naples.

But that meeting was somewhat soured when some Muslim participants complained in a communique that Benedict had neglected to comment publicly on the open letter, and over published comments by Tauran about the unwillingness of Muslims to critically discuss the Quran.

The Vatican No. 2, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, followed up within a month with a formal letter on behalf of Benedict to one of the 138 signatories, Jordan's Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad bin Talal, inviting representatives of the scholars to meet with the pope.

The prince, who is a special envoy to Jordan's King Abdullah II, responded by confirming the agenda of the meeting and saying three representatives of the scholars would travel to Rome in February or March to lay its groundwork.


The Pope is rushing in where angels fear to tread. Does he really think he is going to ensure "instruction of tolerance among the young"? How is he going to verify that this tolerance is being preached in madrassas in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia?

Muslim Loves America - Wants To Kill Americans




Many of the insurgents building bombs and carrying out attacks in Iraq are hate-filled teenagers. Diya Muhammad Hussein, 16, is one of them. He spoke with SPIEGEL ONLINE about his desire to kill the American occupiers -- and his dreams of emigrating to the United States.

It was on a Wednesday a few weeks ago when Diya Muhammad Hussein went out to kill Americans. It was shortly after one o'clock in the morning and the curfew had just begun in the western Iraq town of Rawah. Diya crept out of his brother's house and walked to the tree where he had hidden the explosive device three days before.

He carried the hand-made mine to a gravel road nearby and buried it. Then he put the batteries for the remote-controlled detonator into a charger he had attached to a car battery, hid and waited.

Sad Choices

The New York Times via Instapundit:

European Muslims, so often portrayed one-dimensionally as rioters, honor killers or terrorists, live diverse lives, most of them trying to get by and to have a good time. That is more difficult if one is both Muslim and gay.

The possible thought process: Should I hang myself and be a true Muslim or should I screw Islam and a willing brother?

Kader Balcik, a 22-year-old Turk from Hamburg, said: “For us, for Muslims, it’s extremely difficult. When you’re gay, you’re immediately cut off from the family.”

He had recently moved to Berlin not long after being cut off from his mother because he is bisexual. “A mother who wishes death for her son, what kind of mother is that?” he asked, his eyes momentarily filling with tears.

His mother's thought process: Should I accept my pervert son and reject Islamic teachings or should I be a good Muslim and wish for his end?

Some try to have it both ways (No, I don't mean that.):

Hasan, a 21-year-old Arab man, sitting at a table in the club’s quieter adjoining cafe, declined to give his last name, saying: “They would kill me. My brothers would kill me.” Asked if he meant this figuratively, he responded, “No, I mean they would kill me.”

“I’m living one life here and the other one the way they wish me to be,” Hasan said, referring to his parents. He said he still planned to marry, but when he turned 30 rather than right away, as his parents wished. “I have to have children, to do what Islam wants me to do,” he said. “I would stop with everything in the homosexual life. I would stop it.”

That's going to be one lucky gal.

The Koran Affirms Jews Right To Jerusalem

Even the Koran Affirms Jews' Rights to Jerusalem

Muslim critics of Israel often say that Jerusalem's holy sites must be transferred to Muslim control, because of the central role they play in Islamic theology. For instance, the Dome of the Rock was built on the site where Mohammed is believed to have ascended to Heaven to receive the revelation of the Koran.

However, these people seldom actually quote the Koran itself. This is probably because the Koran actually supports Jewish claims.

Here are several quotes straight from the Koran:

-Mohammed in Sura 5:21 quotes Moses telling the Jews to "enter into the holy land which Allah has assigned to you". While Mohammed later criticizes the Jews for their sins and their refusal to accept Mohammed's message, he never says that, as punishment, Allah has revoked their title to the land. Hence the title still stands, and Muslim anti-Zionists are apostates.

-A case could even be made that Israel's victory over the Arabs in the 1948 war was a judgement by Allah against the Arabs for their apostasy in opposing the Jews. This would be their just reward for transgressing Sura 2:190, which says, "Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you, but begin not hostilities."

-Moreover, Sura 60:9 forbids aiding the enemies of the Muslim people. Contrast this with the Palestinians' continued support of Saddam Hussein, whose hands are red with the blood of Iranian, Kurdish, and Kuwaiti Muslims.

-The Jews' return from 19 centuries of exile is actually the fulfillment of Islamic prophecy. Sura 17:104 says that "when the promise of the Hereafter comes to pass, We [Allah] shall bring you as a crowd gathered out of various nations".

-Sura 17:4 says, "And We [Allah] gave (clear) warning to the children of Israel in the Book, that twice would they do mischief on the earth and be elated with mighty arrogance (and twice would they be punished)!" The succeeding verses tell us that the punishment referred to was banishment from the land. But "twice" means twice, not three times; hence the Jews, having been banished from the land once by the Babylonians and a second time by Rome, will never again be banished from the land. According to the Koran, Israel is an eternal nation.

-Sura 83:1 says, "Woe to those that deal in fraud"; yet Yasser Arafat & Co. reneged on his promise to guard Joseph's Tomb in Nablus after the Israeli troops withdrew.

-The Palestinians deny that there ever was a Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. But Sura 17:7 records the destruction of the First Temple by Babylon and the Second Temple by Rome, and Mohammed never contests the Bible's claim that the Temples were in Jerusalem.


Not that the Koran carries any weight with me.

Storm Track Infiltration: Muslim Call to Prayer Outages Oxford

Oxford, known as the city of dreamy spires, may soon have an oratory addition to their traditional skyline. Muslim calls to prayer blasting our over the small hamlet three times a day.

This proposed addition to the traditional city by the Elders at Oxford Central Mosque is not sitting well with its inhabitants. They have already discussed the controversial idea with council chiefs and are set to submit a formal application in the New Year. They see it as a call to prayer. The residents call the prayers, to be broadcast over three large speakers, are noise pollution.

British Credit Card Chief Forced To Quit After Making Shi'ite Joke

How fucking pathetic. The guy made a freaking joke, and his colleauges were "stunned into silence." We must not offend the Muslims, no matter how many Muslims offend us by killing us.


"A director of Barclaycard has left the company in disgrace after making a joke deemed offensive to Muslims. Marc Howells, 42, who earned 200,000 pounds a year, was addressing senior executives about the credit card company's quarterly figures when he tried to make them laugh with the quip. Mr Howells said: "The results were like Muslims - some were good, some were Shi'ite."

Some outraged colleagues forced embarrassed laughs while others were stunned into silence, but Mr Howells seemed unaware of causing any offence. His pun was later reported to senior management, however, and after some discussion he left the company last month before any disciplinary process could begin.


Of course, the notion of offense turns on the idea that not all Shi'ite's are bad people. Guess what? We know it.

But, almost all fucking terrorists are Muslim, and we've just about had it. Over 10,000 Muslim terrorist attacks since 9/11, and we're not supposed to make a fucking joke?

Fuck you.

God damn it, I'm in a bad mood this morning.

Bernard Lewis turns out to be the wrong man for the job

I used to think more highly of Prof. Bernard Lewis, but now, after reading some clearer revelations about him from both Diana West and Andrew Bostom, I realize that Lewis isn't being frank, or seems to be pulling his punches when he discusses the subject of Islamofascism. He seems to think that anti-Semitism in the mideast was brought over from Europe, without even considering that European colonization of the mideast only began several centuries after Islam first showed up in the 7th century.

Nobody who wants to win the war against terror should have to take anything Lewis says at face value.

Update: here's something he told the New York Sun a year and a half ago that I find flawed:
Mr. Lewis said a great deal of material exists - from Arabs, from Persians, and from Turks - that can form the basis for democracies in the region. He quoted from a 1786 letter to the king's court in France from the French ambassador to Istanbul explaining why the Ottoman Empire was slow in making decisions. The ambassador reported that unlike in France, where the king made a decision and that was it, "here the sultan has to consult" and so it "takes time to get things done."
Let me get this straight. The king of France didn't have a council to discuss many issues with? Actually, the problem here is that Lewis is ambiguously referring to king Louis XVI, who together with his queen, Marie Antoinette, ran an absolute dictatorship that led to the French Revolution and the subsequent overthrow of the terrible twosome for their crimes against the people of France. The way in which Lewis cites this, it's as though he were implying that ALL monarchs, whether in France or other parts of Europe, were total autocrats. Not so, and many of them did have councils. Of course, even with a council, there can still be corruption, and many of these political ruling councils, both in Europe AND the middle east, were as bad as the monarchs under whom they worked. This was certainly so even for the Ottoman empire, and whether or not things worked slowly under the Turkish sultan of the time, he and they were still a bad lot. Lewis is really blowing it by looking at all these details in such a superficial way.

France: "Youths" Only Torch 372 Cars On New Year's Eve

The "Youths" are restless:


VANDALS torched 372 cars as France celebrated the New Year, down on the figure last year after a night the police described as "relatively calm".

Cars are burned fairly regularly in France and the image of vehicles in flames in poor suburbs became symbolic of riots in 2005 when angry youths set fire to thousands of cars.

There is usually an increase in the number of cars torched on New Year's Eve compared to other days of the year.

“The night was relatively calm, without notable incident, there were very few direct clashes with the security forces,” said a spokesman for the national police.

The Interior Ministry said 372 vehicles had been burned - 144 in the Paris region and 228 in the rest of France. That was down from 397 last New Year's Eve.

At the height of the 2005 riots as many as 1400 cars were attacked in overnight violence.


Boy, that is relatively calm. I'm sure glad the "youths" weren't angry.

Muslim Cleric's Chilling Warning To The UK




A FANATICAL Pakistani cleric told The Sun yesterday of his chilling dream to turn the world Muslim – by force if necessary.

Qari Hifzur Rehamn, 60, spoke openly of imposing Islamic law’s stoning and beheading on Britain – as Pakistan was rocked by unrest over the assassination of Benazir Bhutto.

He warned: “We want Islamic law for all Pakistan and then the world.

“We would like to do this by preaching. But if not then we would use force.”

Rehamn, in a flowing grey beard and turban, explained Islamic, or Sharia Law as we sat surrounded by some of his 250 students.

He said: “Adulterers who are married should be buried in earth to the waist and stoned to death.

“Homosexuals must be killed – it’s the only way to stop them spreading. It should be by beheading or stoning, which the general public can do.

“Thieves should have their hands cut off. Women should remain indoors and films and pop music should be banned.”

So what does he think of Britain? The dad insisted: “The nonbelievers must be converted to Islam. Morals in your society, with women wearing revealing clothes, have gone wrong.”

The spot where enriched uranium is produced for Pakistan’s 80 to 120 nuclear warheads is behind razor wire less than five miles from where we spoke.

A dummy missile even sits in a children’s playground in Kahuta.

Only this month, doomed opposition leader Benazir Bhutto raised the spectre of al-Qaeda-linked Islamic militants seizing control of Pakistan’s nuclear warheads – and activity by radicals near Kahuta.

Despite the efforts of politicians such as her to champion democracy, the country has long been a hotbed of Islamic extremism and there is no shortage of potential martyrs.

At the Red Mosque in the heart of the capital Islamabad, Maulana Mohavya Irshad, 24, stared coldly at me. He said: “I’m ready to become a suicide bomber and lay down my life for Islam.

Democracy is wrong. Earth belongs to God and God’s law must be implemented.

“I hope Britain and the rest of the world will have Sharia Law this century. We will continue to sacrifice our lives to achieve this.”

Meanwhile, the al-Qaeda warlord accused of masterminding the death of Ms Bhutto, 54, has warned his 13,000-strong private army will fight to the death against any troops sent to seize him.

Long-bearded Baitullah Mehsud, holed up in the bandit country of South Waziristan on the Afghan border, denied being behind Bhutto’s murder last Thursday in a suicide bomb attack in Rawalpindi.

But his cousin Shehryar Mehsud, 34, told The Sun: “Baitullah and the rest of us will fight to the last man.

Our army of thousands of Muslim brothers is ready for Jihad against the infidels and against the infidel government in Pakistan.

“UK and America are the enemy number one of Islam. We have joined the Taliban troops fighting in Afghanistan and will continue Jihad until we liberate the country.”

Winds of War: Calling Off Jihad

Is this a rift in the leadership of Al Qaeda or just a disinformation campaign?

According to a news article in the New York Sun, one of Al Qaeda's senior theologians, Sayyed Imam al-Sharif, said that the attacks on 9-11 and the current jihad on the West in general, were a "catastrophe for all Muslims".

Will anyone stand up for Saudi women?

The following is a brief opinion column from The Week magazine, my favorite news source. I thought it made a great point and made it exceedingly well in very few words.

If a foreign country sentenced a black man to be whipped 200 times for walking into a white neighborhood, said Anne Applebaum, the world would react with outrage. Europeans and Americans would rightly demand that the backward nation “be treated like apartheid-era South Africa,” and hit with severe sanctions.

But when a Saudi Arabian court recently sentenced a female rape victim to 200 lashes for “the crime” of being alone with a man in a car, the world grumbled and complained, and that was it. No sanctions, no boycotts, no mass protests.

Saudi Arabia, it’s worth remembering, is a country where “women still can’t vote, can’t drive, can’t leave the house without a male relative.” Why isn’t this an international issue? Clearly, Western nations feel comfortable condemning racism, but can’t wrap their heads around the reality that millions of women are still treated like chattel, to be whipped when they step out of line. Even Western feminists are so focused on their own complaints that they pay no attention to “the fundamental rights of women in Saudi Arabia or the Muslim world.”

Isn’t it time someone stood up?

This little article is a condensed version of a longer article by Anne Applebaum in The Washington Post. She obviously hasn't been reading the IBA, where people stand up all the time!

Israeli Physician Feels The Breath Of The Beast

From Breath of the Beast:


Irad ben Zvi is an Israeli physician, working in Chicago. Here is his story:

I have a patient in my medical practice, a very gentle and polite Muslim Egyptian. We became friendly over the years, and he brought in his wife as a new patient. She was a Coptic Christian from a well-to-do family. She had a "liberal" upbringing and she even attended university in Cairo. Before moving to the US, she lived in Gaza and visited Tel-Aviv many times. She told me about her relatives living in London, South America, and the US. She seemed to come from a truly modern, cosmopolitan family.

She had a nephew, also a Christian, who moved to Gaza.

I asked her if her nephew felt intimidated by the Hamas government in Gaza. She answered that there are only 5,000 Christians in Gaza today, and they have all learned to keep a low profile.

When I asked her why her nephew stayed in Gaza despite discrimination against Christians, she replied that he wanted to "fight the Zionists."

I asked her why Gazans were still fighting after the Israelis had already left Gaza? She replied that Gazans are defending themselves from the Zionists, who threaten to "shoot every Arab and throw them into the sea!"

I told her this is utter nonsense. I reminded her that this quote came from Egyptian president Gamal Nasser in 1967, and originally referred to Arab intentions toward the Jews.

I then asked her why the good people of Gaza don't stop the few radical terrorists in their midst from firing rockets into Sderot? She replied that everyone in Gaza supports the rocket attacks.

"Why?" I asked incredulously, to which she replied that it was a part of the struggle against the "Zionist occupation."

I reminded her that Sderot was over a mile from the border of Gaza and well within the 1949 Armistice Lines that defined the State of Israel until the 1967 War. I also pointed out that Sderot has no military bases, and that the rockets are hurting innocent civilians. She replied melodramatically: "When the people of Gaza look out across the border to Sderot, they see their former homes. They yearn for their land! They just want their homes back!"

Her impassioned pleas were worthy of an Oscar®. But this critic doesn't buy such nonsense. Gaza residents would need super-human vision to see their homes from over a mile away, past security barriers and walls. More importantly, if they wanted their homes back so badly, then why are they destroying them with rockets and mortars?

Perhaps I was taking her too literally. English is her second language, after all. Perhaps she was speaking metaphorically. So I re-stated the question: "If, for the sake of argument, Sderot was built on the site of a previous Arab village, why then should innocent people living in Sderot today have to suffer for a 60 year old battle they had nothing to do with? If an Arab really had proof of ownership of any land in Israel, then I am certain there are dozens of Israeli lawyers willing to represent them in front of the Israeli Supreme Court. These disputes can be resolved without a single rocket fired."

She completely ignored my appeal to judicial conflict resolution, and repeated the hackneyed phrase that "Palestinians are desperate! They have nothing left to loose!"

She was clearly unwilling to address the moral implications of terrorism. From her perspective, the displacement of Arabs 60 years ago was a crime that deserves eternal worldwide media attention, and justifies bloody vigilante retribution against innocent bystanders today. In stark contrast, the present-day suffering, displacement, and deaths of completely innocent Israeli civilians is not criminal, and barely deserves acknowledgment in any media reports.

If hers was the voice of liberal, educated, and affluent Arabs, then I, too, have felt the breath of the beast.

I eventually told her that I was born in Tel-Aviv, that my father was Ben-Gurion's bodyguard, and that I strongly support preserving Israel as a Jewish state. She was immediately embarrassed for having spoken so ill of Israelis. She realized I had caught her in the act of spreading false propaganda. I had exposed her anti-Semitism.

When her husband returned to see me, he brought a box of halvah as a present, and he apologized, not for anything she said specifically, but for her "getting carried away." They both still see me, and they even referred their children as patients.

The lesson I learned is that political correctness is not the answer to conflict resolution. Political correctness creates a false veneer of civility that hides deep seated hatred. If the source of the hatred is never addressed, it will never be resolved, especially if the source is misinformation.
