Barbecued Krayon Recipe

First, order your Free Krayon here.


When you receive it in the mail, immediately marinate it in warmed pig fat, sprinkled generously with garlic, salt, and pepper.


Heat up the Mesquite coals on the Grill, and have at it.


Don't forget to use extra lighter fluid for that well-done effect.

Remember, whatever you do, don't eat the Krayon. Instead, scoop up the remaining ashes and crispy pieces of paper, dump them in the toilet, and flush.


Actually, if you want to get real artistic with the recipe, you could marinate the Krayon a second time - while it is sitting in the toilet bowl - before flushing.

The Falling Man



In the picture, he departs from this earth like an arrow. Although he has not chosen his fate, he appears to have, in his last instants of life, embraced it. If he were not falling, he might very well be flying. He appears relaxed, hurtling through the air. He appears comfortable in the grip of unimaginable motion. He does not appear intimidated by gravity's divine suction or by what awaits him. His arms are by his side, only slightly outriggered. His left leg is bent at the knee, almost casually. His white shirt, or jacket, or frock, is billowing free of his black pants. His black high-tops are still on his feet. In all the other pictures, the people who did what he did -- who jumped -- appear to be struggling against horrific discrepancies of scale. They are made puny by the backdrop of the towers, which loom like colossi, and then by the event itself. Some of them are shirtless; their shoes fly off as they flail and fall; they look confused, as though trying to swim down the side of a mountain. The man in the picture, by contrast, is perfectly vertical, and so is in accord with the lines of the buildings behind him. He splits them, bisects them: Everything to the left of him in the picture is the North Tower; everything to the right, the South. Though oblivious to the geometric balance he has achieved, he is the essential element in the creation of a new flag, a banner composed entirely of steel bars shining in the sun. Some people who look at the picture see stoicism, willpower, a portrait of resignation; others see something else -- something discordant and therefore terrible: freedom. There is something almost rebellious in the man's posture, as though once faced with the inevitability of death, he decided to get on with it; as though he were a missile, a spear, bent on attaining his own end. He is, fifteen seconds past 9:41 a.m. EST, the moment the picture is taken, in the clutches of pure physics, accelerating at a rate of thirty-two feet per second squared. He will soon be traveling at upwards of 150 miles per hour, and he is upside down. In the picture, he is frozen; in his life outside the frame, he drops and keeps dropping until he disappears.

ISLAM CASTS A SHADOW OVER 911

The Imam Feisal Rauf wants to build a victory Mosque on our graves. He wants to dance on our graves.


Anyone who can look at the videos of the 911 attacks and not feel anger is a fool who has killed the self-preservation instincts God gave him.


Anyone who can be aware of what the Imam Feisal Rauf is proposing to do at Ground Zero, and not be moved to the same kind of terrible anger that 911 itself inspired in us, is also a fool.


Today is not a day for mere Remembrance, with tears streaming down our cheeks. 

It is a day for intense anger at anyone who would make our grave, for anyone who would dance on our grave.


Today is a day for intense anger at Imam Feisal Rauf, and against all those who support him.


Muslims protest Quran-burning plan...
Florida pastor calls it off...
Tennessee preacher to burn book...
Topeka, Kansas church vows burning...
Protester plans to burn on Wyoming's Capitol steps...

London Muslims Commemorate 9/11



And, they're doing it again today:


Compare what our enemies, the Musliims in the video above, have to say about 911, that it was a warning to us, that we must recognize that we deserved it,


Compare that to the words of Imam Feisal Rauf, who wants to build the Ground Zero Victory Mosque:





There's no essential difference between the two.


The Imam Feisal Rauf is our enemy.

The Taliban, Al Qaeda, and this war



  1. It's the graveyard of empires.
  2. The afghan people cannot choose what govt they want.

One of these is true

I have found myself on both sides of this (though not in the common way of walking off, unless from a technologically made desert and call that peace)


History is on the side of the first.
That argues the Afghans can get whatever govt they please
That argues that the mission we are engaged in is, well.....
And the solution from day one really was ....


What would Saddam have concluded?

The Mullahs?

Hizballah?

Putin?

Instead consider the REAL costs of what we have done

The divisions from Iraq. The partisanship. The domestic unrelenting battles and bitter hatreds.

The deaths and the wounded. How many more here and THERE would be alive?

Just In Case You Want To Dip Yourself Into Dhimmi Shitpaste Today ...

WTC Was Influenced by Islamic Architecture

AOL News (Aug. 20) -- Lost in the cacophonous debate over plans to build an Islamic cultural center just blocks from ground zero is a seldom-discussed aspect of the former World Trade Center itself: It was a complex loaded with Islamic architectural references.

Having worked for the Saudi royal family on projects such as the Dhahran International Airport, Minoru Yamasaki, the Japanese-American architect who designed the World Trade Center, was deeply influenced by Islamic design, experts say. In fact, Yamasaki incorporated design aspects found in the Muslim holy city of Mecca into many of his projects, including the World Trade Center.


AP
This 1985 photo shows one of the twin towers of the World Trade Center from the ground up.
Whether it was his use of repeating, pointed arches, the solitary courtyard in the heart of lower Manhattan, or the exterior ornamentation that referenced other landmarks of Islamic design, Yamasaki, who died in 1986, was not shy about showing off his stylistic influences.

"Yamasaki replicated the plan of Mecca's courtyard by creating a vast delineated square, isolated from the city's bustle by low colonnaded structures and capped by two enormous, perfectly square towers -- minarets, really," architect Laurie Kerr wrote in Slate in a 2001 article. "Yamasaki's courtyard mimicked Mecca's assemblage of holy sites."

The pointed arches at the base of each of the twin towers was seen as especially emblematic of Islamic design.

"The idea of a pointed, ribbed arch was beautifully replicated in the World Trade Center," Nezar AlSayyad, a University of California, Berkeley, architecture professor who worked with Yamasaki, told the San Francisco Chronicle in 2004. "It's ironic it was used in the World Trade Center, which is then understood by the hijackers as a symbol of Western capitalism."

 Yep, that looks like an Islamic design to me.

VDH with an historic Obamination

Obama in just twenty months has developed a reputation for being petulant, unusually sensitive to the normal run-of-the-mill criticism. His latest pushback was his strangest so far: “And they’re not always happy with me. They talk about me like a dog. That’s not in my prepared remarks, it’s just — but it’s true.
....

Add that his team has indulged in invective like few recent administrations — whether Obama’s own slur against the stereotyping and stupidly acting police, Eric Holder’s collective denunciation of Americans as “cowards,” Van Jones’ various hysterics (e.g., polluting and mass-murdering whites, Bush in on 9/11, etc.), Anita Dunn’s attacks against Fox News, or the generic “Bush did it” chorus.

The wonder is not that Obama is angry at criticism, but why he is so surprised in a weird “how dare they?” fashion.

....

Did he really think he could talk his way through four years of the American presidency?

Apparently, he did, and apparently he was almost right — given that rhetoric and sophistry earned him the presidency in the first place. In what follows, I hold some empathy for Obama’s pique; you see in some sense those around him suddenly changed the rules, and what in the past had been habit and custom no longer quite applied.

.....

his is an old story with a long heritage. We know Obama got into Columbia; we have no idea what he accomplished there — or whether his undergraduate transcript merited admission to Harvard Law School. Obama may have charmed his way into Harvard Law Review, but in brilliant fashion he seems to have guessed rightly that once there he would be singularly exempt from the usual requirements of quantifiable achievement.

A part-time visiting law professorship at the University of Chicago Law school rarely leads to a permanent tenure-track position, much less a tenured billet– and never without a body of published articles and books. In Obama’s case those protocols simply did not apply. He was not only offered whatever he wanted, but as Justice Kagan reminded us, Obama was courted by Harvard Law School as well.

Most candidates for state office do not sue to remove their opponents from the ballot. Obama petitioned (successfully) that most of them be disqualified in 1995. It is likewise rare for the sealed divorce records of a front-running primary rival to be mysteriously leaked, prompting a veritable uncontested nomination. But after Democratic rival Blair Hull imploded from such revelations, so did Obama’s general election Republican opponent Jack Ryan, who dropped out of the race after his divorce proceedings were eerily likewise exposed. Lightning does strike twice in the same place for the blessed Obama.

.....

Yes, Race Was a Factor

Throughout the Obama presidential odyssey, an enthralled media variously dubbed him a “god,” confessed to tingling sensations when he spoke, and in vicious fashion turned on any politician who tried to question Obama’s actual record of achievement — whether Hillary Clinton or Sarah Palin.

There is no need to pursue the journalistic malfeasance that allowed the president of the United States to be inaugurated without any real past scrutiny. Suffice to say that any future presidential candidate who promises to cool the planet and lower the rising seas will be laughed out of contention — even if he puts “yes, we can” into Latin on his pre-presidential seal.

Race was a factor. Here the left is correct in assessing its importance in evaluating Obama, although not quite in the way they think.

.....

romoting Obama offered blanket exemption from even the suggestion of prejudice — a sort of cheap flip of a “get out of jail free” card than ensured liberal elites could otherwise pursue their sheltered lives without guilt or worry over demands for daily interaction with most African-Americans. Elect Obama, worry not what he did — and at last live guilt-free lives in seclusion.

That is a serious charge that should not be made lightly, but the emphasis on Obama’s diction, pigment, and appearance — rather than his actual record — is not my own.

Joe Biden, for example, blurted out, “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy I mean, that’s a storybook, man.” Apparently Biden meant that the antithesis of Obama’s profile — a non-mainstream African-American, who spoke a southern patois and who did not appear bright and clean and handsome — most definitely was not to be a storybook candidate and perhaps likely to put off white liberals like Biden. (Note that Biden did not mention any particular achievement of Obama, merely the impression that he made on those like himself.)

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was perhaps cruder even than Biden. It was reported that he had characterized Obama as a “light-skinned” African American “with no Negro dialect, unless he wanted to have one.” Again, Reid’s implied antithesis — a dark-skinned African American who spoke with a Negro dialect all the time — would probably offend progressives like Reid. (Note here that Harry Reid seems to have been the first serious observer to publicly describe one of Obama most off-putting characteristics — the near cynical fashion in which he turns on not slightly, but entirely, different cadences and intonations to cater to particular crowds.)

.....

Now What?

But enough speculation over motives for the origins of Obama’s strange and growing petulance. All that matters for the country is that the current president of the United States seems surprised that as our chief executive he is earning scrutiny not previously accorded him — and that he finds that demand for accountability both exasperating and abjectly unfair. Thus this week’s latest “like a dog” whine.

For some reason, Obama believed that those who expected after his campaign promises a real upturn in the economy, or fiscal responsibility, or inspired foreign policy would be satisfied, as they had in the past, merely with soaring rhetoric and superficial reassurance. When they were not, and voiced such displeasure, as ingrates they had supposedly reduced Obama to canine-like status.

There is no need to add that abroad an Ahmadinejad, Assad, or Putin does not care a bit for the supposed personal chemistry or ethnic profile of Obama. Whether he was “clean” or not would be an absurdity to them. We sense only that those authoritarian sorts seem so far to like the idea that Obama speaks ambiguously about his country’s past and future, and appears more comfortable in pondering alternatives than making decisions.

Given all that, it is understandable both why America is very worried about what it has wrought — and why Barack Obama is miffed and lashes out.

You would too if both accountability and criticism were novel experiences at 49.

Dumbest Defense of GZM to Date: Before Islamists Flew Planes Into the Towers There Was a Small Muslim Prayer Room There


It’s so mind numbingly stupid I’m at a loss for words which is probably why the lefty blogs (LGF, Daily Kos to name a few) think this it’s “proof” there should be no controversy surrounding the construction of a giant victory mosque next to Ground Zero

Click on the title to read the article at Weasel Zippers.

Some people seem to believe this is a day of remembrance.


I say we are at war, and in war, we have no time for days to stop and remember. All our efforts must go to defeating our enemy.


Recently, our enemy has opened up another battlefront, with the proposal to build a victory Mosque at Ground Zero.


Some would like to stand around and solemnly mourn. I stopped mourning a few days after 9/11. Every effort since then has been an effort towards stoking the same anger in others that I feel every day.


I hate the Imam Feisal Rauf. And, I  hate the Muslims who throw temper tantrums at the idea of a burning Krayon, but will not raise their voices against the murder of Christians, Hindus, Gays, and Apostates the world over. And, I hate our elites who tsk tsk, at us, because 72% us know and hate that our enemy celebrates our death. I hate that the FBI, the Secretary of Defense and the President of the United States are trying to intimidate us into a stoned, mournful silence on this day.


THIS DAY.


THIS BLASPHEMOUS, ABOMINABLE DAY.


... not this tragic horror of a day ...


THIS MURDEROUS, MALEVOLENT DAY OF OUR MASSACRE.


This day, of all days, is a day to make new memories; memories of our enemies excruciating pain, when we turn his cruelty around, and impale him, and leave him twisting on the blood-soaked indignity his own device.

You are the Good

Two hundred years ago a tyrant bestrode the world, trampling nations and cultures and peoples, crushing them and destroying and killing on a massive scale unseen before in the world. If this Colossus had been a better man than Napoleon, perhaps we might not be so sickened by his works. But who other than a monster would act in such a way? What man of faith could walk on the earth and look down at a bleeding world beneath him and think, "This is the Good."

I Believe.....



The strength, love, anger and resolve that has been shown this past couple of weeks with regard to the mosque, is the answer.

We love our country, our people, our culture. We wholeheartedly believe in showing respect for OUR fellow Americans who gave their lives in vain on 9/11.

Any group unwilling to accept that, need to leave.

Ground zero belongs to those who died on that fateful day. That is American culture. Deal with it!

ANYONE who is in any way, shape or form tied to those who committed this act of war, has no right whatsoever to invade this territory.


And WE, the proud citizens of the United States of America, have every right, to see to it, that you do not.

Do not tread on us!

This is OUR country, we love it the way it is and we will keep it.

We are not as ignorant as you would like us to be.

Tomorrow

1) Tomorrow we remember
2) Tomorrow Jones and others may burn Qurans
3) Tomorrow the 9/11 Ground Zero Mosque Demonstration Occurs
4) Tomorrow a demonstration across the street in SUPPORT of building the mosque occurs
5) If 2 happens, tomorrow MIGHT mark the beginning of a new historical era on earth

But 9 years ago tomorrow, 3,000 Americans died for no good reason.

And THAT is getting lost.

Tomorrow is 9/11

A day to stop
And to remember WHO IS WHO

Obama Says He Ordered Defense Secretary Gates to Personally Call Koran Burning Pastor

From Weasel Zippers:


Strangely, Obama spent a great deal of time during today’s press conference defending Muslims but didn’t mention anything about Christian persecution in Islamic countries, I’m sure it just slipped his mind.

(The Hill)- In a press conference designed to defend his economic policies, President Obama waded deeper into religious tensions gripping the nation by speaking out forcefully in defense of religious pluralism.

Speaking a day before the nine-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Obama made a passionate plea to Americans to differentiate between terrorists and Muslims.

“We have to make sure that we don’t start turning on each other,” an impassioned Obama said at his first full press conference since May. “And I will do everything that I can as long as I’m president of the United States to remind the American people that we are one nation, under God. And we may call that God different names, but we remain one nation.”

While the president spent a great deal of time discussing the “painfully slow” economic recovery and the midterm elections, the majority of the press conference centered on a discussion about U.S. relations with the Muslim world. The summer congressional recess has been dominated by debates surrounding the plans of a New York group to build an Islamic Center blocks from Ground Zero, and a Florida pastor’s plan, now suspended, to burn copies of the Quran.

While Obama sounded professorial and rehearsed as he repeated his talking points on the economy and the midterms, the president projected a solemn and somewhat impatient tone as he discussed the divide between the U.S. and the Muslim world.

As commander in chief, Obama said he asked Defense Secretary Robert Gates to call Florida pastor Terry Jones, whom Obama did not name, and ask that he not go forward with the Quran burning.

As I said in several posts and their comments sections today, the FBI visited Pastor Jones, the Secretary of Defense called him, and Obama spoke negatively of Pastor Jones' intentions.


There is no law against burning the Koran, the flag, or any other totemic figure.


Therefore, it is clear our Federal government is attempting to intimidate this Pastor so that he will not exercise his First Amendment Right to speak out against Islam in the way he sees fit.


Because our government has crossed the line into intimidation under the color of the authority of their offices, IT BECOMES INCUMBENT UPON US, ALL OF US INDIVIDUALS, TO STAND AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT'S INTIMIDATION TACTICS.


At this juncture, the best way for us to do so is to do exactly what they are trying to scare Pastor Jones into not doing.


It is incumbent upon us all to burn copies of the Koran, and to do so in a public manner.

THE QURAN BURNING - HADITH INCLUDES AN ACOUNT OF A REVERED MUSLIM CALIPH BURNING THE QURAN

POST OF THE DAY - SCROLL DOWN FOR NEWER POSTS

burn-quran

I don’t get why Muslims are up in arms about the planned/postponed Quran burning event. First, I don’t get what kind of stupid god they believe in who gets offended every two seconds. And second, wasn’t it their own caliph that started the practice of burning Qurans? Why aren’t they burning his grave down or attacking Saudi Arabia where he’s buried?

One of the authoritative Sunni hadiths from Sahih Bukhari enlightens us thus:

“Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman came to Uthman at the time when the people of Sham and the people of Iraq were Waging war to conquer Arminya and Adharbijan. Hudhaifa was afraid of their (the people of Sham and Iraq) differences in the recitation of the Qur'an, so he said to 'Uthman, "O chief of the Believers! Save this nation before they differ about the Book (Quran) as Jews and the Christians did before." So 'Uthman sent a message to Hafsa saying, "Send us the manuscripts of the Qur'an so that we may compile the Qur'anic materials in perfect copies and return the manuscripts to you." Hafsa sent it to 'Uthman. 'Uthman then ordered Zaid bin Thabit, 'Abdullah bin AzZubair, Said bin Al-As and 'AbdurRahman bin Harith bin Hisham to rewrite the manuscripts in perfect copies. 'Uthman said to the three Quraishi men, "In case you disagree with Zaid bin Thabit on any point in the Qur'an, then write it in the dialect of Quraish, the Qur'an was revealed in their tongue." They did so, and when they had written many copies, 'Uthman returned the original manuscripts to Hafsa. 'Uthman sent to every Muslim province one copy of what they had copied, and ordered that all the other Qur'anic materials, whether written in fragmentary manuscripts or whole copies, be burnt. Said bin Thabit added, "A Verse from Surat Ahzab was missed by me when we copied the Qur'an and I used to hear Allah's Apostle reciting it. So we searched for it and found it with Khuzaima bin Thabit Al-Ansari. (That Verse was): 'Among the Believers are men who have been true in their covenant with Allah.' (33.23)” Sahih Bukhari.


Now, it is well known that Muslims are hypocrites. This is just another example of hypocrisy on their part. As noted on this blog before and elsewhere, they are alright with their governments burning the Holy Bible and other books of non Islamic religious nature but when it comes to the Quran they just want to kill anyone who even thought about touching it with hands deemed unclean by Muslims.
What the above mentioned hadith shows is that burning a Quran, which is considered by Muslims of today as blasphemous, was employed as state policy by their dear caliph. He started it, go deal with him first!

I expect this from Muslims anyway. Yes, they will probably go out on the streets and endanger the lives of non Muslims all over and yes, burning a Quran would hurt their sensibilities…blah, blah, blah. What I don’t get is, where the hell’s the media when not just Bibles but Christians, human beings, are locked inside churches and then churches set on fire? Where are these so called “loving” Christians when in Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, Sudan, Somalia, Egypt etc their Christian brothers and sisters are burned alive every day? Where is their love when their brethren are calling for help and they turn a blind eye?

You know, the Quran burning event is probably a stupid little idea but at the end of the day, it is what the people of that church know how to stand up to the idiocy of Islam. We can sit here and criticize that church as bigots and a cult but at least they are doing something…unlike millions upon millions of other Christians/infidels that just sit on their sorry butts and switch the channel whenever the news, if ever reported, comes on about Christians being killed.

I am neither in favor of nor against the Quran burning event. I am in favor of that church’s right to express what they want and I am also in favor of us not bending over backwards for the barbarians that call themselves Muslims. If I had to pick a side today, I would definitely back the church against Muslims. And if that comes at a cost, well I am ready to pay it.

And finally my message to General Petraeus: Instead of being worried about your enemy getting ticked off, you might want to let your soldiers patrol the streets with their rifles loaded and maybe, just maybe, let them shoot the bastards that are trying to kill them and grow a pair of balls and order them to shoot to kill!

Obama and the Mosque

The fact that Obama has had very little to say regarding the mosque, could be explained by the following.

He is more interested in pleasing his Islamic brethren, then the people of America.


From Islam Watch

Why 20% Americans Think President Obama is a Muslim

Dr. Radhasyam Brahmachari

Because they have solid grounds, thanks to Obama himself, to assume so..


A recent Gallup poll found that one in five Americans believe that President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim. Reporting on the poll, VoaNews opined: "The number of Americans with that mistaken idea has risen in the past year, although President Obama is a practicing Christian and has made many public statements about his faith."

While such a large number of Americans could be mistaken as VoaNews asserts, but their assumption is, at all, not without foundation. On several occasions, Obama has admitted that he is a Muslim. There a number of Youtube videos, showing Obama confess that he is a Muslim.[1] In a private meeting on Saturday, June 12, 2010, Obama told Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit: "…he was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the stepson of Muslim stepfather, that his half-brothers in Kenya are all Muslims, and that he was sympathetic towards the Muslim agenda."

Don't these confessions in his very own words give one a solid ground to assume that President Barack Hussain Obama could, indeed, be a Muslim?

Apart from this, Obama attended a racist anti-White church for 20 years (for whatever reason), but since he cut ties with his former racist pastor and that church, after latter's virulent attack on the Whites during the election campaign, he is yet to find another church to pray (is he bothered to find one at all?).

From another angle, since Obama’s father was a Kenyan Muslim, he is by-default a Muslim for being born to a Muslim father. And he has not openly said that he renounced Islam. Had he done so, he would be an apostate of Islam in the Muslim eye, and his life would be at stake. Instead, when he toured Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and other Muslim countries of Middle East, he was welcomed and greeted everywhere as an honoured guest and a friend of Muslims. Can an openly 'Muslim apostate' expect such warm welcome from Muslim leaders and peoples of the Middle East? While he could be spared, given his position as the president of America, he could never ever expect the warmest welcome reserved for a foreign leader from the fanatical Arab Muslim populace and leaders.

Moreover, Obama's confession as a Muslim to the Egyptian Foreign Minister is much more revealing:

…he asked that the Moslem world show patience and promised that once he could overcome some domestic American problems, he would show the Moslem world what he would do with Israel.

The Israel-Palestine issue is closest grievance to Muslims all over the world, so, it seems, is for Obama.

Austrian Woman Charged for Criticizing the Koran

From Eye on the World:




VIENNA, Austria (CBN) -- Burning Korans and criticizing religions may generate anger in America, but it's still freedom of speech guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.

However in Europe, speaking out against Islam can lead to a jail sentence.

CBN News interviewed one Austrian citizen facing hate crimes charges for criticizing the Koran.

Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff still remembers her first exposure to Islam as a small child. It was 1979 and her father, an Austrian diplomat, was stationed in Tehran during the Iranian revolution.

"Millions of people were congregating and screaming 'Allahu Akhbar,'" she said.

That incident began an eye-opening journey for Sabaditsch-Wolff, who would be stationed in several Islamic countries during her own diplomatic career. She was living in Libya nine years ago when the 9/11 attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. occurred.

"My landlord came running down, banging on my door. And I opened the door and he ran inside my apartment and said, 'The Jews did it!' That was the first words he said," she recalled.

Experiences like that led her to study the Koran and Islamic culture extensively.

"I've read the Koran. I've studied the books from both sides -- the pro and the con. And I can tell you from what I've studied -- Islam is a political ideology disguised as a religion."

Back in her home country of Austria, Sabadistch-Wolff lectured on the subject and her comments on the Koran outraged a writer for a left-wing Austrian magazine.

"She took it to her editor and they apparently then decided they would take it to the lawyer and take it to the public prosecutor's office," Sabadistch-Wolff noted.

The Vienna prosecutor charged her with hate speech against Islam. She told CBN News she merely quoted directly from the Koran.

"I quoted the Koran. I told them even in the lecture, which Koran I used, which quote. Some of them even had their little Korans with them and they were flipping the pages, you know, checking on me," she said.

This is the latest case of a European charged with hate speech against Islam.

Everybody Burn The Koran



The FBI  use the authority of their offices to intimidate Pastor Jones into calling off his Koran bonfire.

That is an assault on Free Speech by our own Federal Government.

They are using the authority of their office to "enforce" a law which does not exist.

While I believe book-burning is a bad idea (because I believe the written word has a sacred quality in our culture), I also believe that burning Holy Books, Flags, or any other Totemic object is protected Free Speech.

The fact that the FBI is more concerned with appeasing Muslims than they are with enforcing real laws and Constitutional Rights, has, I believe, made it imperative that we stand up for our rights.

I must say, I also agree with what Always on Watch wrote here this morning:
The media go on and on about the message that a Koran burning sends. What message does being afraid to burn a Koran send?
So, I am heartened to see that others have taken up the mantle and will proceed to protect our Free Speech Rights by burning copies of the Koran on the steps of the Wyoming State Capitol on September 11th.

Perhpas we should all follow suit.

NY Mosque Investor Declines Trump's Buyout Offer

Any shock here?

Donald Trump offered Thursday to buy out a major investor in the real estate partnership that controls the site near ground zero where a Muslim group wants to build a 13-story Islamic center and mosque.

The offer, though, fell flat nearly instantly.

"This is just a cheap attempt to get publicity and get in the limelight," said Wolodymyr Starosolsky, a lawyer for the investor, Hisham Elzanaty.

In a letter released Thursday by Trump's publicist, the real estate investor told Elzanaty that he would buy his stake in the lower Manhattan building for 25 percent more than whatever he paid.

"I am making this offer as a resident of New York and citizen of the United States, not because I think the location is a spectacular one (because it is not), but because it will end a very serious, inflammatory, and highly divisive situation that is destined, in my opinion, to only get worse," the letter said.

I think it just did.

Bonfire idea SPREADS past FL and Westboro morons

Wyoming Tribune Eagle
CHEYENNE -- The founder of the Wyoming Tyranny Response Team plans to burn a copy of the Quran on the steps of the State Capitol on Saturday.

Duncan Philp said he will protest the location of a proposed Islamic Center near Ground Zero in New York City. He also will protest President Barack Obama's support for the location.

"I feel Obama is being disingenuous when he pretends he supports religious liberties," Philp said. "(The Muslims) are not building that mosque out of love for my culture or love of the victims of 9-11 but for political reasons."

Meanwhile, members of Unitarian Universalist Church also plan to walk from their church to the Capitol on Saturday.

They will gather in response to a Florida pastor who plans to burn more than 200 copies of the Quran, said the Rev. Dana Lightsey of the church.

I think we can safely say this germ has escaped confinement.

Let's see if it's possible for what has been done to how many thousands of Bibles, and Torahs without worldwide conflagration to avoid what appears to be coming down the chute ... islamists without self control, chomping for another reason to brandish their gintsu's

Respected Islamic Scholar On Muslims In Britain and The Western World: Our followers ‘must live in peace until strong enough to wage jihad’

From the London Times:

One of the world’s most respected Deobandi scholars believes that aggressive military jihad should be waged by Muslims “to establish the supremacy of Islam” worldwide. 

Justice Muhammad Taqi Usmani argues that Muslims should live peacefully in countries such as Britain, where they have the freedom to practise Islam, only until they gain enough power to engage in battle. 

His views explode the myth that the creed of offensive, expansionist jihad represents a distortion of traditional Islamic thinking.

1979: Ground Zero Mosque Imam Supported Khomeini's Call For Sharia Dictatoship In Iran ... Apparently, Still Does


From Powerline:
On February 27, 1979, the Times published Rauf's letter to the editor in which he criticized American for failing to apologize to Iran for past misdeeds. Rauf added that "the revolution in Iran was inspired by the very principles of individual rights and freedom that Americans ardently believe in."

When it reported on this letter, the Wall Street Journal, trying to be fair to Rauf, wrote that at the time of his letter, "Iran's revolution hadn't revealed all of its violent, messianic character." But a closer analysis of the timing of Rauf's letter undercuts this excuse and casts the imam in a worse light than the Journal supposes.
For, as Barry Rubin, has pointed out, Rauf's public cheering of the revolution came just weeks after the Ayatollah Khomeini returned triumphantly to Iran. To be precise, the Ayatollah returned on February 1, 1979. Welcomed back by a crowd of several million, he immediately became the undisputed leader of the revolution. On the very day of his return, Khomeini appointed a new prime minister, Mehdi Bazargan, and told his followers it was their duty to God to obey him. Here are his words:
I hereby pronounce Bazargan as the Ruler, and since I have appointed him, he must be obeyed. The nation must obey him. This is not an ordinary government. It is a government based on the sharia. Opposing this government means opposing the sharia of Islam ... Revolt against God's government is a revolt against God. Revolt against God is blasphemy.
Rubin is thus correct in observing that Rauf's expression of support came at the precise moment when the revolution's extremism had become clear. Read in this context, Rauf "wasn't endorsing the overthrow of the shah or the emergence of democracy but the triumph of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and everything that entailed."

The distinction here, as Rubin has also said, is like the difference between extolling the Russian Revolution while Kerensky was in power and endorsing it after Lenin had taken over. Rauf wasn't moved to defend the Iranian Revolution in the pages of the Times until its Lenin was in control.

To be sure, Rauf's letter in praise of Khomeini's revolution was written more than 30 years ago. But even today, he will not say, as he might have, that while he endorsed the Iranian revolution at first, he has come to realize that it is far too extreme and repressive, and that he does not favor an Islamist theocratic form of government. Instead he stands by what he wrote in 1979, claiming that the letter expresses his longstanding and ongoing concern for the humane treatment of Iran. But anyone concerned about humane treatment of Iranians would long ago have denounced Khomeini and his successors.

Therefore, let us not be under any illusions as to whose side Rauf is on, or what the real meaning of the Ground Zero Mosque is. Rauf may be urbane, but he is not moderate. One cannot be both an apologist for Iran's theocratic regime and a proponent of interfaith understanding.

Spain: Jihadist website threatens to repeat "if it's necessary" March 11th bombings

(Translation: T&P).

El Confidencial Digital:
Spanish police has received several complaints after a post in a Jihadist Website threatened directly Spain to "repeat, if necessary March 11th bombings". The author also remembers the Spanish troops' presence in Afghanistan and "Spanish occupation of Ceuta and Melilla".
"I am writing this letter to the Crusader Kingdom of Spain (the Middle Ages aren't over yet for these morons) 
This is for you, pigs: We are sending our greetings through the air, dipped in blood. Your blood, which we have savored before and which has a flavor we can't easily forget, specially because you haven't understood or simply because you have ignored us, and you continue with your war against Islam and Muslims, enrolling yourselves in NATO (Note: it looks like that Spain is a NATO member since March 11th 2004...) and taking part in the bloodshed of our brothers in Afghanistan".
Is this the next chapter of the Vampire Chronicles or a press release from a Jihadist? No, seriously, that line about savoring Spanish blood seems to be written by a very, very bad terror novels' author.

AP, FOXNEWS : WE WON'T COVER OR SHOW BURNING...YAY!

As Roger Simon very aptly put it, nobody can get a damned book burning right, but with amazing common sense 2 news outlets have recognized that not every whack job loon moron who can form a cult and get other less intelligent species to listen deserves MORE than 15 minutes.

Fox News says it will not cover burning of Quran

In a bold move that is likely to be much discussed in coming days, Fox News said today that it will not cover the burning of the Quran on Saturday if Pastor Terry Jones follows through on his plan to burn copies of Islam's sacred book


AP will not distribute 'images or audio' of burning Qurans

By Elise Viebeck - 09/09/10 01:46 PM ET

The Associated Press said Thursday it will not distribute images or audio of the Quran-burning demonstration planned for Saturday evening by a Gainesville, Fla., church.

"Should the event happen on Saturday, the AP will not distribute images or audio that specifically show Qurans being burned, and will not provide detailed text descriptions of the burning," deputy managing editor Thomas Kent wrote in a memo to AP staff. "With the exception of these specific images and descriptions, we expect to cover the Gainesville event, in all media, placing the actions of this group of about 50 people in a clear and balanced context."

Roger Simon:

What’s missing is someone willing to say: “Though the burning of a Quran is evil and repulsive, so are violent acts in response to it. It is irrational and wrong to target Americans with violence because somebody burns a book. That preacher in Florida should not burn holy books. But terrorists should not hide behind religion as an excuse to commit terror.”

When American flags are burned in Afghanistan and Pakistan, it does not set off a wave of bloody reprisals in America. And it shouldn’t.

The Quran controversy reminds me of what happened in Skokie, Ill., in the late 1970s. A small group of neo-Nazis wanted to hold a rally in Chicago. Chicago refused to grant them a permit, and in retaliation the Nazis announced that instead they would rally in Skokie, a northern suburb with a large Jewish population, including thousands of Holocaust survivors.

What followed was the same kind of media orgy we are seeing now: The leader of the Nazis insisted on giving interviews only in front of a large swastika flag the same way the preacher in Gainesville stands in front of his “INTERNATIONAL BURN A KORAN DAY” trailer. The airwaves and newspapers provided wall-to-wall Nazi coverage.

Finally, after a Supreme Court ruling favorable to the Nazis, a settlement was worked out: The Nazis would be allowed to hold three rallies in Chicago in return for dropping plans to rally in Skokie. In the end, about 50 bedraggled neo-Nazis showed up at the rallies and were heartily booed. The controversy melted away, except for the inevitable books and made-for-TV movies.

Such compromises seem a thing of the past, part of a different time, a different era. Maybe Jones will get a compromise instead of conflagration, but how about trying three simple pledges whether he does or not as we face the future?

Pledge One: We all have a duty not to be unnecessarily provocative and hurtful. Building a mosque near ground zero is legal, but it is also unnecessarily provocative and hurtful. It should be moved.

Pledge Two: We all have a duty not to react violently to provocation. God does not tell people to maim and murder in the name of religion. Not anybody’s God, not anybody’s religion. If you work hard enough, there is always a nonviolent way to end controversies.

Pledge Three: The media have a duty to act with wisdom, responsibility and restraint. Always.

Tell me when you’ve stopped laughing.

The Bigger Story

Just my two cents' worth about the on-again, off-again, maybe-on-again burning of the Koran at the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida...

As I see it, bigger story here is not whether or not Dove Church is going to burn the Koran on September 11; rather, the bigger story is the linking of the Florida Koran-burning with the location of the Ground Zero Mosque.

Haven't Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller repeatedly said that the two protests are not linked? But the media have been trying to link the two stories ever since they started covering the possibility of that Koran-burning.

And now Terry Jones, the pastor of that church in Florida, has linked the two protests forever.

From this source:
Jones announced this afternoon he had decided to call off the Quran burning and would instead fly to New York on Saturday to meet with the Muslim cleric who wants to build an Islamic center a few blocks from the site of the former World Trade Center.

"Our thought was the American people do not as a whole want the mosque at ground zero. If they were willing to cancel the mosque at the ground zero location or if they were willing to move that location, we would consider that a sign from God," Jones told reporters today.
How much will the following be covered so that the average American knows?
Jones, the author of a book called "Islam Is of the Devil," had never previously cited the New York Islamic center as a reason for Quran burning.
And what damage will be done to the September 11 protest organized by Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller?

A commenter at Jihad Watch made the following observation:
Eleanor | September 9, 2010 4:12 PM | Reply

To my ear at least, it sounds as if FOX is saying, in effect, that Jones is totally nuts (won't even show his image), Rauf is sane and CREDIBLE...

Wall Street Journal:

Iran Dissidents Pinpoint Alleged Nuclear Site

By JAY SOLOMON

WASHINGTON—Iran is developing an underground military installation in the mountains west of Tehran, according to U.S. officials and Iranian dissidents, but the facility's exact purpose is in dispute.

An Iranian opposition group, the Mujahedin-e-Khalq, on Thursday told a Washington news conference that the site, which it called Javad-nia 2, is a nearly completed uranium-enrichment facility aimed at fast-tracking Iran's nuclear program.

A U.S. official disputed the MEK's finding that the construction site in western Iran is nuclear, and urged caution.

"This facility has been under construction for years, and we've known about it for years," said the U.S. official. "While there's still some ambiguity about its ultimate purpose—not unusual for something that's still taking shape—there's no reason at this point to think it's nuclear. The Iranians put military stuff in tunnels, too."

The MEK said the facility is 85% complete and adjoined to a major Iranian military garrison. The dissidents said they didn't believe that cascades of centrifuges, which are used to produce nuclear fuel, have been introduced to the mountainous site. But they said that three halls to house the centrifuges have been built and that the Iranian government has spent roughly $100 million developing the facility.

"This type of work has gone undetected and is expanding," said Soona Samsami, an MEK representative.

The MEK has played a significant role in recent years exposing some of Iran's covert nuclear activities. In 2002, it disclosed the existence of Iran's nuclear installations in the cities of Natanz and Isfahan. Subsequent investigations conducted by the United Nation's nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, verified the MEK's claims and set off the international community's current standoff with Tehran over the nuclear program.

Independent nuclear experts said the MEK's information was plausible given Tehran's public claims that it is preparing to build 10 new enrichment plants at underground sites in the coming years. Last year, Iran acknowledged to the IAEA that it had been building a covert uranium-enrichment facility outside the Iranian holy city of Qom.

Still, the experts said the satellite imagery provided by the MEK on Thursday was inadequate for verifying the presence of a new enrichment site. They noted that Iran is developing underground facilities at a number of locations inside Iran, many of which are believed to have military, but not nuclear, purposes.

"It's conceivable this is a nuclear site, as Tehran has announced it would build new enrichment facilities underground," said Paul Brannan of Washington's Institute for Science and International Security, which is focused on combating nuclear proliferation. "But without knowing what's exactly inside those tunnels, it's impossible to verify."

A spokesman for Iran's mission at the U.N. didn't respond to messages seeking comment.

The U.S. State Department has designated the MEK a terrorist organization for assassinating U.S. officials inside Iran during the 1970s.

The organization also collaborated with Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein to launch military strikes against Iran's theocratic government. The MEK is currently contesting the U.S. government's terrorist designation in a Washington district court and says it gave up its armed struggle in 2001.

U.S. officials acknowledge that the MEK has provided useful information in the past. But they also say some of its information has been inaccurate or exaggerated. Iran insists its nuclear program is purely for civilian purposes.

The IAEA released a quarterly report this week on the status of Iran's nuclear program and criticized Tehran for limiting the access of the Agency's inspectors. The report stated that Iran has failed to answer questions concerning its alleged efforts to develop nuclear warheads and triggering devices. And the report said Iran continues to expand its production of nuclear fuel, though not as quickly as some Western intelligence agencies had projected.

Mr. Brannan and other nuclear experts say the IAEA should be pressing Tehran to allow access to the underground facilities currently being developed. They said that the facility cited by the MEK on Thursday might not be nuclear, but others could be.
