Bill Maher agrees Islam is a problem

The leftist TV host is willing to admit Islam is a serious problem:
Bill Maher went after Islam Friday night on his HBO show “Real Time.”

With the Nigerian Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapping hundreds of teenage girls to sell into slavery, the Sultan of Brunei establishing the repressive Sharia law in his country and Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali’s honorary degree being rescinded by Brandeis University, Bill Maher pointed his finger at Islam as a major problem in the world today.

“Islam is the problem, correct. All religions are the problem, but especially this one,” the ardent atheist Maher told some of his liberal guests who were offended by his attacks on the faith.
If those guests of his are offended, they can leave the studio, and make sure the door doesn't hit their asses on the way out. Such leftards are not people anybody sane needs to please. Maher's done right to make clear Islam is far more a problem than any other religion in the modern world.

The German version of Operation Trojan Horse, the plan to take over British public schools for the purpose of faster Islamification is discovered in Hamburg


From Vlad Tepes Blog:
Salafists infiltrate seven Hamburg schools 
by Vivien-Marie Drews 
Hamburg — fanatical young Muslims against liberal teachers and pupils — a religious war rages in Hamburg’s schools! 
Until now School Senator Ties Rabe (53, SPD) refused to identify which schools were affected. 
Now an internal paper of the state institute for teacher training indicates that during recent months in at least seven schools in Mümmelmannsberg, Billstedt, Stellingen and Hamm there have repeatedly been problems because ultraconservative Muslims have simply put forward their own rules.

Al-Qaeda Calls for Car Bombings at Shopping Malls Across the US

KUSI.com - KUSI News - San Diego CA - News, Weather, PPR 

In a recent issue of Inspire Magazine, regarded as the Vanity Fair of Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda calls for Jihad car bomb attacks on certain American cities – including Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York and northern Virginia where the CIA is headquartered.
Ron Bee is a former State Department and Pentagon employee and was asked what would happen if a car bomb were to go off at a major American shopping mall, and what would be the impact on the American economy?
“People would stay home, they wouldn’t go to the malls. They’d go home to wait to hear that (all was OK)… we all know what happened after 9/11: everybody stayed home. They didn’t go shopping. They didn’t fly. The airlines went under, so it could have a major impact.”
The article makes reference to Fiesal Shahzads, the Times Square bomber whose bomb was discovered and subsequently diffused. Al Qaeda says:
“Many Fiesal Shahzads are residing inside America and all they need is the knowledge of how to make car bombs… and the good news is it can be prepared in a home kitchen.”

Muslim Dating Game: Turkish man seeks new lover on TV show after killing two others


Yes, that's right. He has murdered TWO previous partners, a wife and a girlfriend.

From the Daily Star:
ISTANBUL: A man who appeared on a Turkish television dating show in search of a new partner shocked the audience by revealing he had murdered his former wife and a former lover. 
Sefer Calinak, 62, told Flash TV's "Luck of the Draw" he had served prison sentences for each of the murders and had been released under an amnesty programme. 
"I'm an honest person looking for a new wife," he told the show, saying he killed his first wife because he was "irritated" by her behaviour and murdered a subsequent partner because he thought she was after his money.

Has The US Defense Department Developed UFO's?



With Nato forces withdrawing from the badlands of Afghanistan, the country's people need all the help they can get to keep extremists from once again seizing power. 
But it seems a new intervention has come from an unlikely source... outer space. 
U.S. Marines captured this incredible footage of what looks like a UFO hovering over a Taliban encampment - then blowing it to kingdom come.
The clip was reportedly filmed by U.S. troops fighting in Afghanistan in March. Shot by a soldier standing next to a stationary armoured column, it shows a bizarre triangular object hanging in the sky not far ahead. 
As soldiers look on, the craft slowly moves into position, before what appear to be muzzle flashes soundlessly emanate from its underside. 
A split-second later and huge explosions erupt as the fearsome space weapons hit the site of the purported Taliban camp, sending up plumes of smoke that obscure the view of the mysterious bomber. 
After the smoke clears, the cameraman zooms in to shoot a close up view of the UFO, which looks unlike any known U.S. military drone.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

British Islamist: Muslims Should Humiliate Christians In Order To Make Them Convert To Islam


From MEMRI:
Abu Waleed: How many contradictions do the Charter of the United Nations and Islam have? We take what Abdullah Ibn Abbas said, because he was a Companion, from the greatest commentators on the Koran. He said to take the jizya poll tax from the People of the Book. This completely contradicts, my dear brothers, the articles of the United Nations [Charter]. 
Article 2, paragraph 1, says that the organization is based on the principle of sovereignty and equality to all of its members. Equality to all of its members – is there such a thing in Islam? Is there equality of faith? If we look at one hadith of the Prophet on the authority of Abu Huraira, Sahih Muslim… No Sunni Muslim could really argue against Sahih Muslim or Sahih Bukhari… 
“The Prophet said: Don’t greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you, and when you meet any of them on the road, force them to go on the narrower side of it.” Imam Malik said the same thing as well. In fact, Omar Ibn Al-Khattab – about whom the Prophet Muhammad said: “If there were to be another prophet after me, it would be Omar Ibn Al-Khattab”… 
In his own charter – not the Charter of the United Nations – in his charter with the people of the Levant, the Christians of the Levant, [it is stated] that infidels and Muslims were not allowed to wear the same clothes as one another. 
If a Muslim comes out on the day of ‘Eid and sees an infidel with nice clothes, the infidel has to take his clothes off and give them to the Muslim. When an infidel walks down the street, he has to wear a red belt around his neck, he has to have his forehead shaved, and he has to wear two shoes that are different from one another. 
He is not allowed to walk on the pavement. He has to walk in the middle of the road, and he has to ride on a mule. This is only for adults, not for the children. 
You can see how Islam would make the child become a Muslim. The child growing up in a state of heresy would turn to Islam. Why? Because the child would be walking along with his dad, and would say: “Dad?” “Yes.” “Why have you got your forehead shaved?” “I don’t know, these Muslims make me do it.” “Why can’t you ride the animal like the Muslims, who ride like this? Why are you riding with both legs dangling on the side of the donkey?” “Why is it that every time a Muslim comes and asks you for your clothes, you give them?” “Why is it that every time he tells you to get down from the horse, you have to take it?”

Brunei's sultan might not practice as he preaches

A former stripper told Intl. Business Times why she believes the sultan of Brunei will spend time with all sorts of personal enjoyments even as he forces the rest of the population to adhere to sharia:
An American Jewish woman has claimed she was hired to be the mistress of Prince Jefri Bolkiah, the playboy brother of the Sultan of Brunei.

Her revelation came just days after Brunei implemented sharia law, which allows residents to be stoned to death for "transgressions" such as homosexuality and adultery.

In her book Some Girls: My Life in a Harem, Jillian Lauren, 36, explained how she was picked to be Jefri's mistress.

Before turning 17, Lauren had dropped out of school to become a stripper. During her career, she was offered $20,000 (£11,785) to perform for a Singaporean businessman.

She soon understood that the man she had to entertain was not a Singaporean, but the Brunei prince.

"[The job] was an invitation to be the personal guest of the notorious playboy prince Jefri Bolkiah, the youngest brother of the Sultan of Brunei," Lauren told the Daily Beast.

"The prince threw lavish parties every night. At these parties there was drinking (which was not legal in public), dancing, some fairly hilarious karaoke, and, most important, women—about 30 or 40 beauties from all over the world, comprising a harem of sorts.

"I spent the next year and some change as his girlfriend." [...]

Lauren, who has returned to her hometown, suggested that the prince and sultan might not be willing to observe the laws they have implemented.

"It is the privilege of the prince and the sultan to misbehave," she said. "As the citizens of Brunei face the erosion of their rights, I imagine the man I once knew, holed up in a posh hotel suite somewhere, maybe with another American teenager in his lap, making laws that legislate morality."
Certainly it's possible. This has got to be commonplace among many overlords, to keep personal pleasure options solely for themselves while their subjects are denied the same.

ISNA Muslim Brotherhood Leader U.S. Visits in 2012 May Be Subject Of US Senator’s Inquiry


From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:
Mohamed Elibiary

ISNA Muslim Brotherhood Leader U.S. Visits in 2012 May Be Subject Of US Senator’s Inquiry.(TIP).
A longtime Islamic Society of North America leader appears to be at the center of an inquiry by U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley about a "hands off" list within the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) service.
Grassley, R-Iowa, released a letter on Tuesday that he sent to the Department of Homeland Security in February asking for an explanation of what "hands off" meant, the Washington Post reports.
The letter included CBP emails from 2012 about the impending U.S. visit of "an Egyptian born Canadian citizen who was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood" and a close associate of a supporter of Hamas, Hizballah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.The documents are redacted, blocking the subject's identity.
But they also describe the subject as an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation's Hamas-support trial and as someone who said "that the US is staging car bombings in Iraq and that [it] is ok for men to beat their wives, question who was behind the 9/11 attacks."

Jamal Badawi, a member at large on ISNA's governing board as recently as 2012, fits all of those descriptions. He appears among Holy Land Foundation fundraisers on the prosecution's unindicted co-conspirator list. He is listed in a 1992 telephone directory of American Muslim Brotherhood members.

In 2004, he issued a fatwa saying husbands can physically punish wives who persist "in bad habits and showing contempt of her husband and disregard for her marital obligations" as a way to avoid divorce.
Although standard procedure for someone with this background calls for secondary inspection before entering the United States, Badawi has entered without it since 2010, the emails indicate.
CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske replied in April, telling Grassley that there is no list "which would render an individual free of the grounds of inadmissibility or from any other inspection requirement."Hmmm......Any guesses about who wrote the 'Hands off' Note?Read the full story here.

What Culture ranks Frank Miller's products

And the UK magazine predictably decided to put Holy Terror at the bottom of the list of 19 or so stories he's written, in an obvious failure to appreciate the idea, any more than the finished product. They say that:
...the writing of Holy Terror descends into something more akin to a bigoted rant than an actual story.
Oh yeah, it's just like them to blurt straight off the bat that it's nothing more than some "bigoted" rant. Is that also what they think 9-11 Families who openly condemn Islamofascism are doing? Their weird little diatribe gets worse with the following paragraph:
It may not be as bad as seeing Batman punch out insurgents, but whatever the book amounts to is undeniably infuriating. Comics legends like Alan Moore and Grant Morrison – who had by turns lauded and cited as influence to earlier works by Miller – responded with outrage at the mere notion of Holy Terror, an outrage – not a polite disagreement between professionals, but actual anger – and it’s all something like the series could hope to fuel.
All those twosome managed to do was make it sound like they're against fighting crime and defeating violent criminals, and to lose my respect in the process. I guess if it's wrong for Batman to whack out "insurgents" then it's wrong for him to give the Joker - along with plenty of other violent thugs in Gotham - a smash to the face too, huh?

If they think the story itself isn't well crafted, that's one thing, but to say the idea of battling savages is reprehensible is only to deliver a whole slap in the face to what superhero comics are all about - fighting evil. If they don't like that, then maybe they shouldn't read any more superhero, fantasy or crime comics.

When Was the Benghazi "Anti-Islamic Video" Narrative Developed, and Who Developed It?


From Erik Rush:
The “smoking gun” emails recently released by the organization Judicial Watch do indeed give the lie to the White House’s deception with regard to blaming the attack on an inflammatory video, but ancillary data that have come to be known even since then make up the weapons cache from whence the smoking gun came. The entire arsenal must be brought to light, for the sake of justice and the future of this nation. 
Behind the emails, the committee will be hard-pressed to examine the inconsistencies with regard to the White House and State Department having circulated their talking points to the press almost prematurely. There’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releasing her outraged statement following the attack, making reference to telephone conversations with a president whose whereabouts that night remain unknown. 
There is also Ms. Clinton’s statement itself.  
Given while the bodies were still warm, so to speak, it suggests the White House had the video narrative at the ready for some time. The special committee will no doubt run across other emails (such as revealed by former CBS reporter Sharyl Atkisson) that further verify the White House intent to advance the bogus video explanation to the press with vigor and alacrity. What they make of all that remains to be seen. 
Behind these facts, the evidence grows even more disturbing. There is the presence of a Muslim Brotherhood operative (Obama has employed more than a few) on the distribution list of the “smoking gun” email. Mehdi K. Alhassani, leader of the Muslim Student Association (MSA), has ties to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center (ISBCC) mosque attended by the Boston Marathon bombers and other violent Islamists. Despite this, at the time of the Benghazi attack, he was a special assistant to the office of the chief of staff in the White House. 
This would tend to suggest that serious coordination was executed between this White House and their Muslim Brotherhood collaborators in the Middle East. 
Still more startling revelations have been provided by the Citizens Committee on Benghazi, a group consisting of well-versed former CIA and military personnel. Last month, they released a report asserting that the Obama administration intentionally allowed arms to flow to al-Qaida-linked militants who had opposed Libya’s Moammar Gadhafi. 
Finally, there is the shadowy background of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, producer of “The Innocence of Muslims” (the film that was purported to have touched off the widespread Muslim unrest of Sept. 11, 2012). The Shoebat Foundation and other media have alleged that Nakoula was actually an informant for the U.S. government dating back to the Clinton years. 
Did he produce “Innocence” at the behest of his government handlers for the express purpose of reinforcing White House propaganda? At this juncture, it’s certainly a reasonable question. 
Speaking of the Clintons, it’s also been revealed that their ties to the Muslim Brotherhood stretch back to the 1980s and is of course supported by Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Huma Abedin, her long-time assistant and deputy chief of staff when Clinton was secretary of state. Abedin’s family is practically Muslim Brotherhood royalty, with literally zero degrees of separation between them and Mohamed Morsi, Egypt’s deposed Muslim Brotherhood president. 
This evidence, as well as much more than we have space to address here, is indicative of a widespread plan to undermine American national security, foreign policy and the Constitution, all the while galvanizing our government’s power over us and the personal sway of players such as the Clintons, Obama, and their political affiliates. 
The extent of these machinations, both in terms of time and scope, is positively dizzying. Whether this serial treason was taken on for reasons of narcissism, power and a false sense of invulnerability (as I suspect it was for the Clintons), or due to an abiding hatred of America and the desire to see her brought low (as was most certainly the case for Obama and his mixed bag of Marxist and Islamist ideologues), it still spells serial treason. 
Whether the Select Committee on Benghazi will settle for the impeachable offenses (which will be essentially worthless in the practical sense), or the treasonable ones, again, remains to be seen.

Northern Nigeria Christian Association Declares Conspiracy in Chibok 'Boko haram' Abduction


From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

Northern Nigeria Christian Association Declares Conspiracy in Chibok 'Boko haram' Abduction.(OsunDefender).

The Northern Nigeria Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) yesterday released a statement expressing reservations and alleging conspiracy in the Chibok schoolgirls abduction.

The chapter said they believe the kidnapping is a conspiracy involving the governor of the state, Kashim Shettima, the principal of the school, the chief security officer of Borno & the commissioner for Education.

In the statement, they asked how 300+ girls can disappear into air without any trace and where the daughters of the principal, vice principal & CSO of the state were when the kidnapping took place, and why no single photograph of the Chibok girls has been made public by school authorities.

 The position of Northern CAN on the abduction of female students in Chibok.

Since the abduction of some female students in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, Northern CAN has decided to be silent for some reasons. We have decided that we will make statements when we have all the facts of the matter. It may interest Nigerians to know that we have fundamental questions which demand one million answers:

1.    Since the abduction of these girls over two weeks ago, has Borno State Governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, constituted any panel of investigation with a view to making its report public?

2.    How did the 353 female students disappear from the school into the thin air?
3.    Why did the Borno State Commissioner for Education, Principal, Vice Principal and Chief Security Officer, all Muslims, ignore the valid advice of WAEC on the security implication of writing exams in the school and the need to have a centre where the children’s life will be secured?
4.    How did Boko Haram carry over 200 students and their food stolen by these criminals from the school? Was it carried with trailer?
5.    Why is it that since this issue came up, no single photograph of the abducted children was made public by the school authorities? After all, they were preparing for exams and may have submitted their photographs.
6.    Where were the daughters of the Principal, Vice Principal and Chief Security Officer when the abduction took place?
We hope that this is not a political gimmick to carry out a political conspiracy against these daughters of Nigerians, future mothers of Nigeria and citizens who are wants to be leaders of tomorrow.
So these are the questions; we have done our investigations, we are begging the international community, we are begging the Federal Government of Nigeria and the press to ask these legitimate questions from the Governor, Commissioner for Education, Principal and CSO of the school because Chibok is a predominantly Christian area. What we are after is the safety and future of these children, whether they are Christians or Muslims or our enemies doesn’t matter. They are Nigerians, first and foremost.

Our positions are as follows:

1. The Governor and government of Borno State should and must as a matter of urgency stop playing politics with the lives of the children of other people. They should produce those children without delay because they know their whereabouts.

2. We demand an explanation from the Governor, Commissioner for Education, Principal and CSO of the school on what they did and what they did not do that led to the ferrying away of these innocent children who went to sit for an examination for the betterment of their tomorrow.
3. How come that the parents of these children have not been able to come out and say anything? Are they saying that these children are orphans and do not have parents? We demand an explanation because from our investigation, parents of these children are facing intimidation and threats from the government of Borno State. That is why they could not come out to speak; but they are nursing their pains in silence.
4. We also demand that the Federal Government and the international community should help us beg the Governor of Borno State to do everything within his powers to produce these children.
5. We also reject a situation where they will turn our daughters to be sex slaves of these criminals called Boko Haram members. We have it on good authority that some of these children are being raped 15 times a daySome of these children are being compelled to be wives of these criminals. If you want to marry somebody’s daughter, you must seek the consent of her parents and not to ferry under-aged children and perpetrate a lot of havoc on them.
The abduction of these girls seems a resurrection of what the Christian communities in Northern Nigeria have been suffering for centuries in the hands of the Emirs and Imams regarding forceful conversion and abduction of Christian girls. Borno State government should be reminded that the fundamental human rights of these people should be respected and protected.

The Governor should provide immediate explanation because we know that some people want to sacrifice these children on the altar of politics. There is a limit to which Christians would tolerate all these abnormalities. 

We suspect a conspiracy among all of these characters including the Governor, Commissioner for Education, Principal and CSO since non of the daughters of the teachers and Principal were abducted; there is more to it and this is the position of Northern CAN.

Why Did the Press & Political Establishment (But I Repeat Myself) Only Begin Caring about Boko Haram When They Began Kidnapping Girls?


This focus on Boko Haram from both the media and the government is an unqualified good. The press arguably increased the pressure on global governments to do something about this backwards group of terrorists. But Boko Haram is not a new phenomenon. It was not long ago that some – including this author – were asking why this group’s atrocities were not generating any attention in the press. 
On February 25, between 40 and 59 children were killed by the fundamentalist militant group. Early that morning, Boko Haram terrorists attacked a boarding school and shot many of children, aged 11 to 18, while they slept. Some of the students were gunned down as they attempted to flee. Others had their throats slit. In some buildings, Boko Haram militants locked the doors and set the building alight. The occupants were burned alive. 
All of the victims were boys. Reports indicated that the young girls the militants encountered were spared. According to the BBC, the militants told the girls to flee, get married, and shun the western education to which they were privy.

NYC Imam Leading Push To Scrub References To Islam From 9/11 Museum Calls Jews A “Cancer”


From the Investigative Project on Terrorism:
A Muslim religious leader who helped spearhead a push to get the National September 11 Memorial Museum to censor references to Islam in a short film about al-Qaida has said Jews “killed the Prophets and Messengers” and are a “cancer … in every generation as they get in power.” 
Mustafa Elazabawy, imam at Masjid Manhattan, made the remarks in a December 2008 khutbah, or sermon, called “Children of Israel.” 
A recording of the sermonremains on the mosque’s website Elazabawy wrote a letter to museum leadership last month, complaining that the 6-minute film about al-Qaida’s rise “would greatly offend our local Muslim believers as well as any foreign Muslim visitor to the museum,” if it is not changed. 
“Unsophisticated visitors who do not understand the difference between Al Qaeda and Muslims may come away with a prejudiced view of Islam, leading to antagonism and even confrontation toward Muslim believers near the site.” 
He also joined in a follow-up complaint sent to museum Director Alice Greenwald on behalf of New York Disaster Interfaith Services’ advisory group. Critics have taken issue with the film’s references to “jihad” and the hijackers’ Islamist ideology. 
“If generalized labels are needed, we suggest using specific terms such as “Al Qaeda-inspired terrorism,” the letter from the Interfaith Services group said. Similar complaints were issued by Islamist groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC).

Why Normal Fifth Amendment Rules May Not Legally Apply in the Case of Lois Lerner

From Ace of Spades:
Lerner may have waived her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. Virtually all the commentary I see on this from conservative websites (and from Rep. Issa) is, at the very least, incomplete. Part of the difficulty is that application of the right against self-incrimination before Congress is an undeveloped area of law. I cannot emphasize that enough. We just don't know whether she waived her right against self-incrimination because there is scant judicial guidance on this, and what guidance does exist is contradictory. We can take civil and criminal case law as a guide to self-incrimination before Congress, but the bottom line is that witnesses before Congress can pretty much get away with whatever Congress will let them get away with. There were several missteps here. 
First, Issa let Lerner go with a blanket invocation of the Fifth Amendment the first time she came before the committee. Such blanket invocations are foreign to civil and criminal cases, so Issa let congressional procedure deviate from civil and criminal procedure right out the gate. He tried to clean it up later by issuing a statement saying she'd waived the Fifth, but it's unclear whether a court will accept that (again, there's no precedent either way). 
Second, Issa eventually tried to remedy this problem and make the congressional procedure more closely conform to case law by calling Lerner back and getting her to invoke the Fifth Amendment to specific questions. Unfortunately, case law provides that a witness may waive the right against self-incrimination in one proceeding, and then invoke it later at a different proceeding on the same subject. So even if Lerner waived the right at the first hearing, it will be tough to argue that she waived it for the second hearing, at least if we're applying civil and criminal case law. 
Civil case law has also held that a witness may make exculpatory statements without waiving the Fifth Amendment in the situation where the witness is both compelled to appear (i.e., the testimony is not voluntary) and the witness makes no incriminating statements prior to the waiver. Both of those things appear to be true here, but as I wrote above, this was a congressional proceeding, not a civil trial. The difference may be crucial to resolving whether Lerner waived and there just isn't any judicial guidance on it. My gut is that the courts will simply default to the easiest route and apply their own civil precedent to Congressional proceedings.

Which is all a god damned shame, because:
Lerner has indicated that a crime occurred. There have been some suggestions that Lerner is "innocent until proven guilty" and that we cannot take a negative inference from her invocation of the Fifth Amendment. This is false. It is entirely appropriate to take a negative inference from someone invoking the Fifth in civil proceedings or before Congress. She had no reason to do so unless she believed a crime had been committed. We can take Lerner at her word when she indicated that she believes a crime had been committed.

"I Had No Idea How Bad Islam Was Until I Dated A Muslim"


A letter to Pamela Geller from a young woman who dated a Muslim man for three years.

From Pamela Geller:
I was taught never to judge others’ religion and culture. I took Cultural Anthropology, World Religion, Philosophy, Social Environment classes and I have the Quran at home. In school, professors makes Islam and all other religions seem very peaceful and I guess it has a lot to do with freedom of religion and ethics. 
During those 3 years I use to believe that Islam was indeed peaceful, my Ex convinced me that it was very peaceful… but I never believed it was perfect. No religion is perfect in my mind. 
I am a Psychology major, while taking psychology courses I realized that Islam created people who are ignorant, dependent and selfish. 
I started to slowly realize that I was dating a massive manipulator. His logic made no sense to me. I couldn’t question Muhammad or Allah, and when I did, he would go ballistic. At times he was very sweet and kind but I felt like Islam limited his mind. He was afraid to make his own choices. Everything was a sin. 
I use to believe women who covered themselves were very committed and loving to their religion and happy. I use to be naive and defend Islam because of all the “Stereotype”. I was a willing victim to my ex boyfriend and to Islam. 
I was willing to move with him to Saudi Arabia, Thanks god I didn’t. The amount of prejudice and racism in that culture is incredible. 
I know for a fact that my ex hates Jews with passion and had no idea what the holocaust was. Even after showing him pictures of dead Jews and dead children during the holocaust, he would twist the topic and talk about the Palestinians who were suffering due to the Jews. 
Islam brainwashes people. Everything in Islam goes against Psychology. It is highly impossible to have a stable mindset while raised in that culture. You don’t have a voice in that culture and religion. It took me a long time to start healing because I had a very strong love for my ex, even now after a year, I sometimes cry at night.
I had no Idea how bad Islam was until I dated a Muslim man. 
My ex had some good qualities and it made me damn sad that he had such strong hold on Islam. I hate Islam because there are potential good people in Islam but the more they are controlled by their faith, the more inhuman they become.

U.S. House Hold Former IRS Official Lois Lerner In Contempt Of Congress


Lot of good this will do.

Eric Holder has demonstrated that "Contempt of Congress" means nothing to friends of Obama. Holder has been in Contempt of Congress for almost two years, and there is no result at all.

Lerner will do the same.

From Fox:
The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the agency’s targeting of conservative groups. 
The House voted 231-187 for a resolution holding Lerner in contempt. Lerner’s case will now be sent to the Justice Department, which then must decide whether to essentially prosecute Lerner in the case. 
House GOP leaders have said Lerner’s testimony is important to fully investigate the scandal, in which IRS agents singled out Tea Party nonprofit applications for extra scrutiny. 
“Thorough investigations by the Oversight and Government Reform Committee as well as the Ways and Means Committee have revealed findings that indicate that Ms. Lerner played a central role in the illegal targeting of conservative groups by the IRS,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va., said in a memo last month. 
Last May, Lerner refused to answer questions at a hearing about IRS agents singling out Tea Party applications. She again refused to answer questions in March, citing her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. 
The House Oversight Committee voted to hold Lerner in contempt last month. All Republicans voted in favor and all Democrats voted against. 
Lerner directed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. She retired from the IRS last fall, ending a 34-year career in the federal government, including work at the Justice Department and Federal Election Commission.

Party At Mohammed's House: Clit-Cutting Becomes a Cause For Celebration Among Muslims in the UK


Yippe.

Stupid Effin' Muslims.

From the Guardian, who as is typical of them, do not actually name the culprits:
The cutting of girls at female genital mutilation "parties" is still going on in Britain and not just taking place abroad, healthcare experts have told MPs. 
The Commons home affairs select committee has heard that "cutters" – often older women – are flown into Britain for the events, at which as many as a dozen girls may be operated on. Janet Fyle, of the Royal College of Midwives, said that by the time the authorities could be alerted, the cutter would have left. 
"By the time the girls are cut, the woman 'cutter' is on her flight back to the country she came from. We can't go after the cutter. We don't know who she or he is. The parents have to be held responsible," she said. 
Professor Janice Rymer, of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, shared Fyle's belief that FGM was happening in Britain. Asked about its scale, she said: "We have no idea. We have no data but I am sure it is happening in this country."

MARVEL COMICS IS SO DUMB THEY NAMED THEIR MUSLIMA SUPERHERO "KAMALA" - KAMALA IS THE NAME OF A HINDU GODDESS, THUS THE NAME IS BLASPHEMOUS TO ISLAM

Kamala Khan - Ms. Marvel the Lotus Goddess

How stupid is Marvel Comics, and their dumbass writer, G. Willow Wilson?

The new Ms. Marvel is set to make a Hulk-sized impact on the comic book industry. Marvel Comics’ “Ms. Marvel #1” hits comic store shelves Wednesday, introducing readers to a new Muslim super heroine whose secret identity is 16-year-old Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American of Jersey City. 
The character —- the brainchild of writer G. Willow Wilson, an Islamic convert herself, and Muslim editor Sana Amanat — is an attempt to punch through long-standing stereotypes in a medium that has largely been the purview of muscle-bound white crime-fighters. 
Honestly, I don't know what "white" has to do with it. There are white Muslims, and brown Muslims, and black Muslims, and Asian Muslims.

Islam is a Religion Ideology, not a race.

Anyone who thinks that there is some inherent connection between a religion/ideology and a particular race is a racist.

Why?

Because color of skin has nothing to do with the ideas that people believe. So to equate ideas with skin-color is to suggest that there is a racial aspect to thought, which is the foundational idea of racism.

It's downright Naziesque.

But to get back to the subject; Kamala is not a proper name for a Muslima.

It is a Hindu name.

It is the name of a Hindu Goddess of Spiritual Wealth.

Hinduism is a Polytheistic Religion.

Islam's primary goal was to eliminate Monotheism. It is first and foremost a Monotheistic religion. Islam considers the Christian concept of the Trinity to be blasphemous.

Islam is virulently opposed to Polytheism. Polytheism is considered an Unforgivable sin.

Here's how Islam deals with Polytheists:
Sahih Muslim (19:4294) - "When you meet your enemies who are polytheists (which includes Christians), invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them ... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them"

CSBG gushes over the Muslim Ms. Marvel

I really ought to be more careful when I say Comics Should Be Good is the only part of CBR that impresses me, because the following, sensationalized review of Marvel's Muslim propaganda puts a big stain on that section too, and the worst part is that a woman is the one doing the fawning here:
The biggest surprise of the group, for me, is Ms. Marvel, which is a book that has lit people on absolute fire, and with good reason. Obviously as the story of a young woman of color—and with the especially underrepresented Muslim faith (not to mention Pakistani American background) – this books helps fill a huge gap in our current superhero comics. But filling a gap doesn’t matter if you’re not actually good. Fortunately for all of us, Ms. Marvel is all caps GOOD. It’s smart and appropriately sweet, gloriously superheroic and inspiring. It’s also a wonderfully organic origin story (and I DO get sick of origin stories especially when they’re rehashes or retcons of characters we already know) but Kamala’s tale is both perfectly universal and relatable and also unique to her.
Oh yes, we all know how "organic" it is by now, don't we? As the news involving the Original Sin crossover's noted, they're tying the character's would-be origin in with the Inhumans. And while Pakistani background itself is fine and welcome, the Muslim background is not, and I say this for the same reasons I would frown if they decided to conceive a protagonist who's a Scientologist or sympathetic to the Ku Klux Klan mentality.

One of the commentors to this article said the series would eventually be cancelled because it stars a character nobody's ever heard of. No, that's not why it'll be cancelled in time. It's because it forces the Religion of Peace onto the main star as her belief system, and down the readers' throats. If they'd avoided ideology, it'd be much easier to accept the book on its own terms.

Most galling, as mentioned before, is that a woman is the one here to gush over the book, all without doing any research about Islam and the Koran, and does a serious disservice to women as a result. This kind of propaganda only embarrasses the CSBG section, where the better items are usually history based for mainstream products.

CULTURISTS PSYCHOANALYZE NATIONS

One evening recently, my literature group dove into Seeds, by Sherwood Anderson. This short story explores the Freudian, sexual dynamics within a young woman. Largely raised without a father figure, she craves sex, and yet, simultaneously, is entirely repelled by it. At the end of this article, I will discuss how such art can add to vital culturist discussions.
This young woman who is repelled by sex exudes it in other ways; she routinely keeps the door ajar when showering and lays around the boarding house in seductive poses. Near the end of Anderson’s story, her landlady tries to evict her for this inappropriate behavior.
Facing her imminent eviction, the young woman runs into the room of a poor painter who has a facility for words. Among the men, this painting intellectual had taken the least notice of her. While asking the painter to "take her," she drops to her knees. When the trailing landlady enters the room and sees this, she pulls the wanton woman up to her feet and both women begin berating the painter. This reaction seems counter-intuitive, until we consider Seeds as a Freudian analogy.
Positing Freudian symbolism, I told my literature group that the sex-obsessed woman is the id: that is, the primal sexual drive postulated by Freud; the landlady represents the super-ego (that is, what society demands of you – in this instance keeping your sexual urges contained); and the man, the painter, represents the ego. Our egos are the attempt to balance the two opposed forces, to satisfy our sexual drive within the limits of social propriety.
READ THE REST HERE!

BREAKING: Massive Explosion in Iran – Possible Nuclear, Roads Blocked Off for 2km


Couldn't happen to a nicer group of people.


Arutz Sheva reported:
An immense explosion has been heard throughout the northern Iranian city of Qazvin, semi-official Fars news agency reported, and many casualties are expected from the blast.
Around 1.1 million people live in the city, which is located about 100 miles north of Tehran.
The blast may be related to nuclear development in Iran, according to the Los Angeles Times. Iranian officials in the past have strongly denied claims by Mujahedin Khalq Organization, or MKO, a cult-like Iranian exile group, that it has a secret nuclear enrichment facility in Abyek, near the major city, according to the daily.
The source of the blast remains undetermined. Several mystery explosions have been reported in the past several years in the region, none of which were ever verified.
A few years back, Bloomberg had reported Iran was developing a secret nuclear site in Qazvin.

Qazvin, Iran – RT
Roads leading to the site of the fire within a 2km radius have been closed off.
Macedonian News Service reported:
A heavy explosion has taken place at a warehouse in Qazvin, north Iran, according to local news agencies. Authorities expect high numbers of casualties as a subsequent fire tore through the area.
Unconfirmed local reports state that as many as 50 could have been either killed or injured in the city, which is considered a commercial hub.
A fire broke out, engulfing the city in a cloud of smoke. Roads leading to the site of the fire within a 2km radius have been closed off and people evacuated,according to the semi-official Fars news agency.
From Five Fun Facts:

Qazvin May Have a Secret Nuclear Weapons Plant

Qazvin City Explosion
(Google Maps)
It had been reported in 2009 that Qazvin was the site of secret uranium enrichment plant. It wasreported by Fars News Agency in Iran on May 5 that an inspection team from the International Atomic Energy Agency arrived in the country to inspect a uranium mine in Central Iran.

The Cause of the Explosion is Unknown

It's unknown what the cause of the explosion was. Thomas Erdbrink with The New York Timesreports that local news reports are saying an oil storage is burning. He added that people are being evacuated from the area but that he hasn't seen reports of an explosion. The RT reportsthat firefighters have been battling a blaze at an oil depot in the region for hours

The City is Home to One of Iran's Largest Power Plants
The Shahid Raja'i is located in Qazvin and it currently one of Iran's largest electrical power plant generating around 7 percent of all of the nation's electrical power.
