Egypt President, Abdel al-Sisi: Islamic “thinking” is “antagonizing the entire world”


Among other things, Sisi said that the “corpus of [Islamic] texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the years” are  “antagonizing the entire world”; that it is not “possible that 1.6 billion people [reference to the world’s Muslims] should want to kill the rest of the world’s inhabitants—that is 7 billion—so that they themselves may live”; and that Egypt (or the Islamic world in its entirety) “is being torn, it is being destroyed, it is being lost—and it is being lost by our own hands.”

WSJ on graphic novels aimed at women

The Wall Street Journal wrote about new comics aimed at women. Unfortunately, they just had to include a very bad choice for women who're realists:
Marvel’s new series, “Ms. Marvel”—about a Muslim girl living in Jersey City, N.J.—was the publisher’s No. 1 best-selling digital title of 2014, according to Marvel. (The trade paperback version, “Ms. Marvel Vol. 1,” released in October, has been through seven print runs.)

[...] Sana Amanat, the Marvel editor behind “Ms. Marvel” and “Max Ride,” said the success of “Ms. Marvel” came as a surprise.

“I honestly thought that people would see this and say ‘Uck, God what a gimmick,’” she said. “It was a bit of a risk.”
And despite what she says, it is a gimmick. If they didn't want anybody to think that, they would've left religion out of the mess. Interesting they haven't told how much it's really made in sales, digital or otherwise.

I wonder why this book matters, but not some of the other series they've published with female leads, like the Capt. Marvel book now starring Carol Danvers in the role of her male predecessor? If the WSJ wanted to, I'm sure they could've put that into the text instead of the Muslim Ms. Marvel. Now that I think of it, this article's used a gimmick, and not a very good one.

England Pulls Palace Guards Because They're Afraid of Muslims

Maybe If We Pretend We Are Dead, 
The Muslims Will Leave Us Alone

From the Daily Mail:
Security chiefs have taken the dramatic step of withdrawing Royal Guards from their high-profile posts outside palaces amid mounting fears of ‘lone wolf’ terrorist attacks. 
The move to more secure positions behind gates or railings is a direct response to attacks such as the murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby and the killing of a sentry by a lone gunman at the Canadian Parliament two months ago. 
But the measures have been described as a ‘retreat’ for the Guards, known the world over for their bearskin caps. 
Retired officer Major Iain Dalzel-Job of the Scots Guards told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I think this is a big shame. 
'The reason people know we’re around is because they can see us. But I suppose the changes are necessary as there is a significant threat.’
The significant threat is the Western world's collective lack of balls.

Icon for worsening race relations, “SELMA” -myths to INCREASE hate

Writing in The Washington Post,  former Johnson domestic policy aide Joseph Califano criticized filmmaker DuVernay for ignoring history, and particularly for suggesting that Johnson set the FBI to investigate King.
“Selma was LBJ’s idea,” Califano wrote. “He considered the Voting Rights Act his greatest legislative achievement, he viewed King as an essential partner in getting it enacted — and he didn’t use the FBI to disparage him.”
One of the central themes of a movie rumored to be awarded with an avalanche of awards is the ‘bad’ LBJ, whom history records as the liberal icon of all time.
The civil rights legislation of 1965, Medicare, and the Great Society legislation give the LIE to the smear job.
Califano cited a transcript of a phone call two months before the marches in which Johnson urged King to generate white political support for a voting rights bill by seeking out “the worst condition that you run into” in the South. He said that Johnson wanted images of racist brutality widely circulated in the news media, which the film depicts as King’s strategy. He noted J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI, not Johnson, investigated King though the latter tried to discredit King in a scathing letter recently posted by the New York Times.

Julian Bond, a civil rights leader who worked with King, praised “Selma” but took issue with Johnson’s depiction as an obstacle to progress.
That Bond praises a movie whose major point is UNTRUTH between the races at the pointy end of the sword tells us all we need to understand about the power of the lie, and the danger to an American society which paid with 360,000 Union Lives ( a number which equates to nearly 4 MILLION TODAY) to kill slavery, and saw the KKK emerge to be political power and NOW has become a joke representing IGNORANT LACK OF EDUCATION, all the while seeing a unified population in demanding each person here get EQUAL OPPORTUNITY.
I cannot tell you the way I am, as someone who WORKED voter registration tables after the passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, instantly SHUT OFF when I hear this crap, or that Eric Garner’s tragic and CRIMINAL (IMHO) death is part of a racial divide here.

Truth is not arguable. Those who attempt to argue by the emotion of a movie that the sky is green, deserve our excoriation and isolation, not an AWARD.

We have made a lot of mistakes here trying to GOVERN OURSELVES, but we PAY ATTENTION to injustice.

In THIS case injustice is being done to REALITY and HISTORY.

The inevitable result of such events will mean the OPPOSITE of what those who make a movie like Selma want. The division and grievance incurred on BOTH SIDES will exacerbate every division there, and find a new set cracks to exacerbate where none existed as the weak minded accept as fact, that which is fiction to make rich, the immoral.

Prime Minister Of Turkey Now Talking About Invading Jerusalem, In A Major World War


From Barb Wire:
A major talk was organized in Konya, the birth place of Prime Minister of Turkey Ahmet Davutoğlu, and in his presence, before a jubilant crowd shouting in Nazi style, Davutoğlu can be seen elated at the statements spoken by the leader of Hamas, Khalid Mashal. 
The fiery speech hailed Turkey headed by Erdogan and Davutoğlu as the representative and head of the entire Muslim world and praised him for the soon invasion of Jerusalem in the coming world war.



In the speech, which was not aired in major media (Shoebat.com was able to obtain the footage thanks to Willi Adelberger), after the crowd calmed down their Nazi style chants, Mashal reminded that “Jerusalem is the first center of direction for Muslims.  It was Konya that, in 1980, when Jerusalem was threatened, rose up for Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque.” 
Looking towards the near future, Mashal declared: 
As Turkey, for centuries, was the main defender of Jerusalem and Al-Aqsa Mosque, likewise with you are the center of the Muslim Umma (Muslim nation) which will carry on the mission of liberating Jerusalem and al-Aqsa Mosque. 
At the 6:10 mark of the video Khalid Mashal declared: Know this, that strong Turkey is the strength of Palestine and of Jerusalem. 
At around the 7:14 mark he exclaimed: 
Turkey is the strength that represents all Muslim nations. The crowed at that point paused and in unison with an elated should cried out “Allahu Akbar” 
There is a picture of Davutoglu in front of the crowd; he can be seen right next to a young boy:

Ahmet Davutoglu, Erdogan’s right hand man, is seen instantly clapping in jubilation at such affirmations the moment Khalid Mashal spoke of conquering Jerusalem with the crowds waving flags that stem from the Turkish favorite colors in which the Ottomans prided themselves with the “fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow” (Revelation 9:17) which are also the colors of the flags the neo-Ottomans like to carry. 
In every time one can see Davutoğlu, he is smiling in joy. Mashal complemented the AKP Islamic party of Turkey of their accomplishments in what he termed “lightning speed to have accomplished what they accomplished for the advancement of the Muslim world.” 
“Allah is with us and is with you for victory” Mashal reminded of war against Israel. He ended his speech reminding that he will invite Erdogan and Davutoğlu into the Temple Mount: 
“We were welcomed in Istanbul and now in Konya and tomorrow we will welcome you into the platform of Al-Aqsa (Temple Mount) in the next conferences, by the will of Allah.” 
It is obvious what this signifies: the Turkish government wants to invade Jerusalem in a holy war, or jihad. World War III will then be over Jerusalem, which indicates one glorious coming event: the Crusades will be revived, and the Final Crusade is will occur. 
What is very sad, though, is that the Muslim world still has the spirit of jihad, and we in the West are still stuck in the mindset of the Enlightenment, in which the idea of Holy War or a Crusade is mocked and seen as lunacy, and where secular wars are praised over religious wars. 
We must revive the spirit of Holy War, for no secular war will fully extinguish the enemies of Christianity. With secular wars there is an invasion, battles, and then compromise. In religious war there is no compromise, only obliteration of evil for the cause of the good.

Muslim Leaders in Australia Say Banning Terrorism Will Ban Islam

We Have The Right To Call For Your Destruction

From the Australian:
Grand Mufti of Australia Ibrahim Abu Mohammad and the Australian National Imams Council have called for the offence of “advocating terrorism” to be removed from the so-called Foreign Fighters Bill, currently before Parliament.  
A Muslim cleric who preaches from certain passages of the Koran could be caught in the “broad” net of the government’s new anti-terror law, Islamic leaders have warned. 
In its submission, the Islamic Council of Victoria said the new law would incriminate Muslims who support “legitimate forms of armed struggle”, including resistance to the Assad regime in Syria and the Palestinian conflict with Israel.
 Daniel Greenfield comments:
They have a point. It’s just usually one that they aren’t willing to admit in public. The Jihad comes from the Koran. Every act of Muslim violence that is religiously sanctioned, from terrorism to rape, is derived from the Koran. If you ban incitement to violence against non-Muslims, you criminalize the Koran. 
So the argument is that they want to promote “good terrorism” against Jews and they don’t want to be sanctioned for it. Muslim settlers. Australia clearly needs more of them to create a tolerant society. A tolerant society which promotes the “legitimate” murder of Jews.

"Why We Fight Islam"

This essay by Danish psychologist Nicolai Sennels is excellent.

Excerpt:
I was recently asked: Why fight Islam? The short answer is because Islam fights us and since it knows no borders and it knows no mercy, it will keep fighting us until we are defeated or we – hopefully – stop them forever.

The goal in Islam is world domination and a central part of every Muslim’s religious practise is to spread his faith with all possible means until it covers the Earth completely. Ever since the 6th century when Islam’s founder and self-proclaimed prophet, Mohammed (who maybe never existed), set out to conquer neighbouring towns, killing, maiming, raping and enslaving scores, Islam has spread its suppressing and destructive doctrine as far as it could. Christian, Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist countries and cultures have been crushed by relentless waves of jihadis (Arabic: mujahideens), leaving up to 270 million non-Muslims dead, mostly killed in exceedingly barbaric ways....

[...]

Can it happen to us?
Well, the millions of non-Muslims who used to live where Islam now rules probably asked themselves that same question… And yes, it will also happen to us, if we do not stop Islam. Western intelligence services increasingly warn that thousands of Muslims outside and inside our own countries are preparing themselves to fulfill their religious duty.

Meanwhile we settle with hoping that Muslims will be as pacified by our nursing welfare states and reassuring media as we have become ourselves...

Seriously, What a Stupid Bitch: Selena Gomez Deletes Mosque Photo After Sparking Controversy For Showing Her Ankle on Instagram


I hope they throw her in jail. That would teach infidels the lesson to stop funding these states through tourism dollars.

The message is, they hate you. So stop giving them money.

From Yahoo:
Selena's starting off the New Year by sparking some controversy. Selena Gomez traveled to Abu Dhabi to welcome 2015 along with Kendall Jenner, Shay Mitchell, Cody Simpson, and Gigi Hadid. 
When the group and their pals visited the Abu Dhabi Grand Mosque on Dec. 29, they raised some eyebrows by posting goofy Instagram pictures. 
Gomez, 22, got the brunt of the hate when she posted a now-deleted picture of herself popping her leg out to show off her bare ankle -- a sign of impropriety in the Muslim culture.
Here's another photo of these completely vapid women trying to glam up the local couture, without seeming to realize that the veil is not glam,  and it's not even remotely funny or cute.

It's a fucking prison for women.

Judd Winick does me an honor

In this special post, we focus upon one of the most overrated people to work on TV and in comics, Judd Winick, who recently did me an honor by accusing me of "hating" gays and lesbians when he's covered for Islamofascism in the past despite all the genuine homophobia found in that religious culture:

And of course, there's his chumminess with Brad Meltzer, author of Identity Crisis, one of the most misogynist screeds ever to litter mainstream comics, that needs to be pondered. Wow, what an honor this is to have Winick accusing me of "homophobia" while eternally letting the Koran off the hook for what it prescribes. You know what, I think I'll return the favor for this delightful tweet in a very special way, by sounding like an entertainer on stage scoffing at Winick's flaccid standings.

"See, I'm Judd Winick, and I can talk down to everybody because I had this cool gig on a MTV program called The Real World in the late 90s, and another cool gig writing comic books in the mid-2000s!" Yeah, but you turn your back on gays and lesbians persecuted in Muslim countries, Judd, and you wrote apologia for the very religion that does worse to gays than Judeo-Christianity ever has. And, as some comics fangirls have noted, you have a pretty insulting take on women to boot. So turn down your volume a few notches, why don't you? Because you're a phony, is all.

And seriously now, when Winick accuses me of "not liking" gays, he's just resorting to a subtle way of telling somebody "you're a FPOS". Gee, Judd, if that's what you think, how come you couldn't just up and say so? Chicken, maybe?

You know, what's really sidesplittingly hilarious about Winick is that, for somebody who says he's of mostly Jewish ethnicity, he has a lot more in common with the Satmar, an isolationist Haredi clan who go by religion, and whose faux take on Judaism is as far from our similarly named religion as one can get. They're insular, and so in fact is Winick. And he'll probably end up joining them in the forseeable future, wearing a black fur hat and growing a huge beard while delighting in robbing the taxpayers by living on welfare checks at their expense. That's what leftists of his kind support, so it only figures they'll ultimately approve of Satmar.

I've often thought it possible a lot of people in showbiz consider sexism far less important than homophobia, and the only time they'll yield on their homophilia is when Islam objects to the practice. Winick is sadly one of those types who give telling hints of these double-standards by the left.

Spendthrifts spending our money.

One example from The Daily Caller:
Obese Sex

The Federal government allotted $466,642 for a grant to study why obese girls don’t have sex. According to the report’s abstract, obese girls have less sex, but when they do have sex they are less likely to use protection. The NIH funded a similar grant last year....

Happy New Year To Me!

Nerves on fire
Relief at last!
After weeks of agony, I got relief on Thursday from a spine specialist, who administered several lumbar-spine adjustments and several epidural blocks.  These were not pleasant procedures, but they have tamped down all the leg pain and most of the weird sensations (tingling, burning, etc.).  I finally got a full night's sleep on New Year's Eve!

So, fellow infidels, it's back to blogging for me.

The spine specialist doesn't know exactly what is going on with my back and leg, but he'll figure out the problem. He's the most respected spine specialist on the East Coast.

Merkel Tells Germans Not to Attend Anti-Islam Rallies


Merkel condemned the organizers of the protests and said they were driven by prejudices and hatred against foreigners.
The chancellor used unusually direct words in her New Year’s speech on Wednesday for the rallies organized by a group calling itself Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West, or PEGIDA which have been attended by thousands.
When the protesters chant “we are the people,” they actually mean to say “you don’t belong ? because of your religion or your skin color,” Merkel said.
PEGIDA organizers insist they are protesting only against extremism and not against immigrants or Islam itself, but the demonstrations have received support from far-right groups, prompting concerns that anti-foreigner sentiment might be rising.
Funny how Merkel thinks she knows better than the people themselves why they attend these rallies.
Her statement would seem to blame racism/xenophobia.
The people themselves are anti-racist inclusionists who simply want to make sure they can preserve a Liberal culture in Germany.

Brad Meltzer suggests he's okay with Roger Waters

A few weeks ago, I wrote a topic where the comics artist Cully Hamner later responded by spitefully/gleefully indicating he's fine with anti-Israeli musician Roger Waters, and also with novelist Meltzer, his penning of the offensive miniseries Identity Crisis notwithstanding, and now, here's a special screenshot of a retweet said novelist took:
Yes, this particular tweet, in which Waters comes up, was retweeted by none other than Meltzer himself, suggesting he sees nothing wrong with Waters. Can it prove a man of allegedly Jewish background like Meltzer has poor taste in whom he'd like to associate himself with? Of course, and so, that's one more reason why I'm glad I wrote the topic in the first place. It helps give an idea what drives certain "ideologues". On the surface, Meltzer might've retweeted it out of self-indulgence. But if he's got no problem with people like Waters being involved, that certainly gives reason to wonder.

Update: oh, and speaking of Hamner, look at this little plaque of honor he sent me after I wrote another post taking him to task for how he upholds Meltzer with such disregard for dissenters:

Wow, that sure is charming. And in exchange, let me just say that you, Hamner, have a lot in common with the Satmar Haredis! Yes, seriously. I mean, if you support socialism, then so do they, and quite a few more ideas you might support as well. Not something you'd expect anyone to suggest, I'm sure. Thank you very much for showing just how rational you are; it helps get an idea what's gone wrong with comics contributors today. I figure one day, Hamner will be wearing one of those goofy streimel hats and growing a nice long beard, enjoying socialist welfare in Kiryas Joel, and supporting more anti-conservative stances in the very place some leftists no doubt view as perfect for their cause. Hee hee!

Campus oppression

Alexandra Zimmern lets us all know how universities today are restricting free speech on draconian levels, and it's not just dangerous for Israel, but for other people too:
The infamous Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns and “apartheid week” displays on college campuses are not the only threat to Jewish students. A much greater threat looms: the inability for students to publicly defend their beliefs. While universities claim to be havens of open debate and intellectual curiosity, they are in reality black holes of political correctness. On campus, only certain ideas are worthy of consideration and Zionism is definitely not one of them. This culture doesn’t just threaten members of the Jewish community, who are terrified to challenge those who accuse Israel of the most heinous crimes. Rather, it threatens all of us who value free speech and its ability to encourage criticism, debate, and original thought on college campuses.

While speech codes are thought to be a thing of the 90s, the truth is that college students today are facing the most serious threats to their civil liberties. From “trigger warnings” to “free speech zones,” universities are slowly training students to become hypersensitive and incapable of deviating from ideologies that are in vogue.

But unlike the 90s, universities are now controlling speech in a much more insidious manner. Speech codes today manifest in vague and poorly written policies that try to protect students against harassment, sexual assault, and bullying. Seemingly, these policies serve the best interest of students who face these issues on campus. But practically, they give university administrators the power to punish students for harmless speech protected by the First Amendment, while ignoring due process for the accused.

It is shocking how many universities have such policies. Lehigh University, for example, defines harassment as “…unwelcome statements, jokes, gestures, pictures, touching, or other conducts that offend, demean, harass, or intimidate.” I suppose they weren’t planning to invite Sarah Silverman (or any other decent comedian) anytime soon. Georgetown University’s Code of Student Conduct includes punishable measures against incivility defined as behavior that “disrespects another individual.” Since when is being disrespectful a crime? In Minnesota, St. Olaf College has a policy that disallows “creating or posting material that is offensive” on a campus computer. In other words, no emailing political memes, cartoons, or opinion articles…all of which could potentially offend someone.

Therein lies the real danger. How can we punish students or professors for saying something that might be understood as disrespectful? And should universities have the authority to decide what does and does not fall under these definitions on a case-by-case basis? For many students, the positions that conservatives take on social issues are offensive: anti-gay marriage, anti-abortion, etc. But that shouldn’t mean that these positions are illegitimate and that those who hold these opinions should be discriminated against. These policies, though, allow for exactly that.
Exactly. And the only time anti-gay marriage stances are considered appropriate are when Muslims object to it. It's extremely disturbing how university staffs are basically teaching their students to be thin-skinned towards anything they disagree with. How can anybody at a college be a true success if they have low self-esteem? Most bewildering is how people with no ownership or property certificate to a college campus can make such a fuss about people they don't agree with giving lectures there, or why they'd even want to attend. Staying at home would be a much better way to go, yet these leftists waste all their time yelling at people they despise, acting vulgar and hardly presenting somebody you'd want to hang around with.

I think one of the challenges now is to get universities to stop teaching their students to be thin-skinned and start acting with self-confidence. Better still, they could teach them to be apolitical and not act like politics are something they must adhere to no matter what.

Obama Frees Nuclear Terrorist from Gitmo


From Daniel Greenfield:
There appears to be no threat that a terrorist can pose and no crime he has committed too severe to prevent him from getting a plane trip out of Gitmo at taxpayer expense. The last releases saw terrorists rated as high risk freed by Obama. They included fighters with experience on the battlefield and covert operations. 
Obama set loose a suicide bomber, a document forger and a bomb maker who trained other terrorists to make bombs. Those are exactly the sorts of enemies whose license to Jihad will cost lives. 
But that’s nothing compared to Obama’s latest gift to the Jihad. When Mohammed Zahir was caught, among his possessions was found a small sealed can marked, in Russian, “Heavy Water U235 150 Grams.” 
According to the classified report, the uranium had been identified by Zahir “in his memorandum as being intended for the production of an “atom bomb.” 
Zahir was not just another captured Jihadist. He was the Secretary General of the Taliban’s Intelligence Directorate and was in contact with top leaders of the Taliban and Al Qaeda. 
His possessions included a fax with questions intended for Osama bin Laden and he had been arrested on suspicion of possessing Stinger missiles. But that may not have even been the worst of it. Among the items was a notebook containing references to large sugar shipments to Washington D.C. 
Investigators believed that sugar was used as a code word for heroin. The Black Sea stops mentioned in the notebook are major hubs for smuggling heroin and for nuclear smuggling as well.

Sarcelles, France: Jews Flee After Pro-Palestinian Rioters Who Chanted “Gas The Jews” Attack Jewish-Owned Shops, Synagogue


From the Puff Ho:
France’s politicians and community leaders have criticised the “intolerable” violence against Paris’ Jewish community, after a pro-Palestinian rally led to the vandalizing and looting of Jewish businesses and the burning of cars. 
It is the third time in a week where pro-Palestinian activists have clashed with the city’s Jewish residents. On Sunday, locals reported chats of “Gas the Jews” and “Kill the Jews”, as rioters attacked businesses in the Sarcelles district, known as “little Jerusalem”. 
Manuel Valls, France’s prime minister said: “What happened in Sarcelles is intolerable. An attack on a synagogue and on a kosher shop is simply anti-Semitism. Nothing in France can justify this violence.”

Sweden to Opt for Suicide by Immigration?


From Daniel Pipes at National Review:
Woe to anyone in Sweden who dissents from the orthodox view that welcoming large numbers of indigent peoples from such countries as Iraq, Syria, and Somalia is anything but a fine and noble idea. 
Even to argue that permitting about 1 percent of the existing population to emigrate annually from an alien civilization renders one politically, socially, and even legally beyond the pale. (I know a journalist threatened with arrest for mild dissent on this issue.) 
Stating that there exists a Swedish culture worth preserving meets with puzzlement. And yet, the realities of immigration are apparent for all to see: welfare dependency, violent bigotry against Christians and Jews, and a wide range of social pathologies from unemployment to politically motivated rape. 
Accordingly, ever-increasing numbers of Swedes find themselves — despite known hazards — opting out of the consensus and worrying about their country’s cultural suicide.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

Obama’s Anti-Cop Jihad


From the Counter Jihad Report:


The Protests were Organized for one Specific Purpose – Dead Cops
In December 2012, a respected Egyptian news magazine named six Obama administration officials who were in fact agents of the international terrorist organization, the Muslim Brotherhood. They claimed that these individuals had helped change the White House “from a position hostile to Islamic groups and organizations in the world to the largest and most important supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.”
One of these alleged agents was Imam Mohamed Magid, a Koranic scholar from Sudan. In the Obama administration, Magid was appointed to the Department of Homeland Security’sCountering Violence and Extremism working group in 2011. He is on the FBI’s Sikh, Muslim, and Arab advisory board (yes, we have one of those). He has trained and advised personnel affiliated with the FBI and other federal agencies.
Under Obama’s dictates since he entered the Oval Office, the United States government decided to publicly announce a softer approach to countering Islamic terrorism and the ideology behind jihad (i.e., war in the name of Islam). Imam Mohamed Magid has been a centerpiece in Obama’s show of tolerance (of violence) and diversity (of means of death), so much so that he and his organization have been “cited … as the primary means of outreach to the American Muslim community.”
It’s now known that Magid has a remarkable connection to the murderer of two NYPD officers this December.

Net Neutrality = Net Communism


From Patterico's Pontifications:

It seems to me that the Net Neutrality proponents are trying to repeal the laws of supply and demand through legislation. Such efforts always end badly. We should re-label the effort “Net Communism.” Let me explain. 
The Internet promotes this illusion of a Shangri-La world of unlimited access to unlimited data for free. Of course, we all realize (if we think about it) that this isn’t quite the case. You have to pay at both ends of Al Gore’s information superhighway. 
On the receiving end, whether you access the Internet through your phone or your computer, you typically have to pay an ISP for access. 
You could go to a Starbucks and grab their free WiFi, but somebody has to pay for that access (hint: it’s Starbucks). They pay for it, and provide it to you for free, to lure you there and sell you overpriced coffee-style drinks and pastries. 
But someone has to pay
On the serving end, you must pay as well. As you have probably noticed (since you’re here) I have a Web site. 
I pay to maintain the URL, and I pay hosting fees to a company that hosts the site on a server. 
Because I don’t pay thousands of dollars every month, the server capacity I can purchase is limited. I share a server with several other sites that also typically do not need a dedicated, gold-plated server. 
This arrangement typically suits my needs, but the site is not necessarily able to sustain a link from Matt Drudge. (I have found this out before.) 
If I am dissatisfied with this state of affairs, and wish to have a site that can easily withstand a Drudge link, I will have to pay more. There is good reason for this: bandwidth, like most resources, is scarce
If a Drudge link hits my site while my site is on a shared server, it slows down traffic for all the other sites. 
If I pay more money to the hosting company, they can now afford to invest in capital (a new server) that can help them better satisfy my needs.

The Top Anti-Muslim Hate Crime Hoaxes of 2014


From Robert Spencer:
On Christmas morning, a man drove up to the Islamic Cultural Center in Fresno, threw rocks through the windows, and then entered the center and destroyed things inside. The local ABC outlet, KFSN, reported Friday that “Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer says it is clear the incident is a hate crime which is why the FBI is also investigating this case.” 
But on Saturday, it turned out that the incident was not an “anti-Muslim hate crime” at all: the vandal was Asif Mohammad Khan, a Muslim. 
The destruction at the Islamic Cultural Center in Fresno was yet another in a long series of fake hate crimes designed to prop up the fiction that Muslims in the U.S. are routinely targets of discrimination and harassment.

Islam: The Untold Story

My Grandfather told me the truth is revealed in the little things

I thought of that when I saw this article.

He was a small boy working on a farm (someone else’s) near what is today the Belarus border and was then a Czarist Russian dominated Polish population. The people were getting a bit uppity, especially the farmers, an independent lot.

So in come the cossacks to destroy everything, just not the way you think.

No one was hurt. They came to the farm, quartered their soldiers, and their horses, and ate the family out of every single little morsel of food for them, and feed grain for their farm animals until it was all gone, and then moved on.

The little thing?

When they found out my grandfather just toiled there, and lived in the barn, the Cossacks, who would under any other circumstance charge back and forth thru his shtetl until it was acceptably raped, murdered and in all ways rendered uninhabitable, made sure he ATE WITH THEM and was full.
It was that act, he said which told him they were going to destroy the farmers, perhaps KILL them if this did not work. Indeed, when he told the farmer, they made plans to get the family away. Here, in fact.

So now, what little thing informs us?

We look to Barack Obama. His recent signing (actually not, just an imperial memorandum) of the no deport for illegal immigrants, in effect making up laws set up the big argument as an indicator to his self arrogation of power, and his desire and RIGHT to do so, because he says so. It is his ROLE. He know it.

Other say, ‘BAH, every prez does this’

So what is the little thing?

Soldiers forced to relocate wedding for Obama’s golfing

BY KELLY COHEN DECEMBER 29, 2014
One couple wanted to get married, but President Obama wanted to play golf.
Army captains Natalie Heimel and Edward Mallue Jr. knew Obama was headed to Hawaii for the holidays, so on a whim, they extended him an invite to attend their Dec. 28 wedding — one he politely declined. That same day, they were informed they would have to move their wedding location.

The wedding was set to be at the 16th tee box at Kaneohe Kipper Golf Course on the Marine Corps Base in Hawaii — a favorite of both Mallue and Obama.

“It was kind of ironic they got the letter from them and then, within hours, they were told they had to be moved due to him,” Jamie McCarthy, Mallue’s sister, told Bloomberg Politics. “It was emotional, especially for her — she’s the bride and in less than 24 hours they had to change everything they had planned.”

It’s his right, you see.

First citizen and all that.

Women and Children Last: “Ferry catastrophe: Muslims beat women and children to save themselves”


Islam turns morality on it's head. The strong go before the weak. The women and children last. Might is right. Power, greed and lust are exalted.

 Who is the "God" of such morality?
“It was hell. I saw some scary scenes. There were men, Iraqis, Turks, Pakistanis on the ship, who was told to sit down to allow rescuers to prioritize children, elderly and women. But they climbed, beat and pulled the people to come first to the rescue helicopter and into safety. I was also beaten. I was so furious. It was really ugly. I will never forget it.”, Said Dimitra Theodossiou.”

We Muslims should be appalled by the sale of halal meat by stealth


From Taj Hargey in the Daily Mail:
When I walk into a restaurant, I’m usually a hungry customer. It shouldn’t be important to the waiter what my religion is. I could be a Muslim, a Christian or a Jedi warrior. Whatever my beliefs, I have a right to enjoy my meal without any hidden agendas. 
Pizza Express, one of Britain’s favourite food institutions, admitted this week that all the chicken it serves has been killed according to traditional halal methods. The blood was drained from the bird and prayers were recited during the slaughter. 
Now it turns out that the meat in many supermarkets is also halal — though there is no recognisable label to indicate this fact to consumers. 
This is covert religious extremism and creeping Islamic fundamentalism making its way into Britain by the back door. 
It is completely wrong that the food sensitivities of Britain’s Muslims — who amount to just 4.8 per cent of the population — should take precedence over the other 95 per cent. 
Halal meat should never be forced on customers without their knowing, surreptitiously and using clandestine methods. It’s unfair to everyone, non-Muslims and Muslims alike. 
It’s deception on a grand scale for the former, while it could fuel bitter resentment against the latter. 
Of course I understand that many of my fellow Muslims, who are moderates not militants, will feel strongly that they wish to eat meat that has been killed by customary halal methods — and they have a perfect right to do so. 
But many misconceptions need to be clarified, because I am certain that most people don’t understand where these rules about food came from, and who benefits from them. 
First of all, if you’ve just tucked into a chicken pizza without knowing it was halal meat, it hasn’t done you any physical harm. 
But it hasn’t done you any spiritual good, either. Muslims don’t believe that religious observance can be used as a holy shortcut or a ticket to paradise. 
Furthermore, the idea that Muslims cannot eat non-halal food — food that is suitable for Christians — is completely wrong, and it has no theological basis in the Koran, the supreme text of Islam. 
I’m a dedicated Muslim, a devout religionist, an imam and intellectual scholar of Islam, but I eat whatever food is placed before me, with the obvious exception of pork. If you’re kind enough to invite me to your home, I would eat whatever meat you chose to serve: turkey, lamb, chicken, beef … anything except pork. 
This is perfectly permissible in Islam, and the crucial thing is that it doesn’t have to be halal meat. 
No one wants an imam to be quoting chapter and verse of the Koran over the turkey sandwiches, but it is important that everyone understands how clearcut the teaching is. Chapter five, verse five of the Koran states: 
‘This day all good things are made lawful for you. The food of the People of the Book [meaning the Jews and the Christians] is lawful for you, and your food is lawful for them …’ 
There are no ifs and buts about that. The Koran does expect us to be thankful for our food, however. I teach in Oxford, and when I go to dining halls in the university, I eat what is available. I must say, I’m partial to a slice of steak. 
At the point of consumption, before I put the food in my mouth, I give thanks, with a brief prayer that Muslims have been saying for more than 1,400 years. 
I say: ‘In the name of God, the most Merciful, the most Gracious.’ Christian readers will recognise what I’m doing — it’s very similar to the concept of saying grace. 
The Koran says we cannot eat slaughtered meat unless the name of God exclusively has been pronounced over it, not any other deity or idol. So, it does not really matter if, when that cow or lamb was slaughtered, the abattoir workers were saying prayers or playing heavy rock music at full blast on their radios. 
The individual prayer just prior to actual consumption makes the meat fit — halal — to eat. 
But if the Koran does not insist on what have become the customary halal methods, why are they now so prevalent in Britain? 
One reason is that religious zealots and theological ideologues are deliberately promoting confusion about halal to sow discord and resentment. 
Three of the main fundamentalist Muslim sects — the Wahhabi fanatics in Saudi Arabia, the Salafi extremists of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and the Deobandi zealots from India-Pakistan — are foisting their fabricated notions about it down our collective throats. 
Muslim fundamentalist insistence on halal meat does not come from the Koran itself — it derives from a secondary and often suspect source, called the Hadith. 
The Hadith consists of the reputed sayings of the Prophet Mohammad, only compiled some 300 years after his death, and it is replete with gross contradictions and anti-Koranic statements.

UPDATED AT BOTTOM OF POST --- Hands Up – Don’t Serve: Chipotle In Brooklyn ALLEGEDLY Refuses To Serve Cops Over #BlackLivesMatter


ALLEGEDLY MEANS ALLEGEDLY

UDATED ---


A Chipotle representative responded to the incident.
They took appropriate action against the employee involved.
On Dec. 16, a group of eight NY police officers came to one our Brooklyn restaurants at about 6:15 PM, and before approaching the counter saw a single Chipotle employee raise her hands in what appears to have been a spontaneous, unplanned gesture of protest directed at the police. The group of officers then left without ordering food. In no way was this statement from our employee consistent with our culture and values. Quite the contrary. We work very hard to make all of our customers feel welcome in our restaurants.
Since being notified of this incident, we have conducted a review to determine what happened, including review of video footage from security cameras and interviews with our restaurant team. We have also taken appropriate actions with regard to the employee involved, and reiterated to our operations teams the importance of making all of our customers feel welcome in our restaurants. No exceptions. Finally, we have apologized to many of the people who have contacted us regarding this issue.
Above all, we apologize to the officers involved. We serve law enforcement officials in our restaurants around the country every day, and we appreciate their service.
Quite simply, this incident should never have happened.

Housewife and mother of three believes Halal certification goes against Australian values and is pushing for an investigation into whether the profits fund terrorism


From the Daily Mail:
An Aussie housewife claims to have discovered ‘deception and corruption’ within the food industry, campaigning to uncover the truth about the relationship between Islam and some of Australia's major food companies. 
Kirralie Smith is concerned that Australians are unknowingly funding Islamic bodies every time they do the grocery shopping. 
She is seeking full disclosure from food companies so Aussie shoppers are fully informed so they have a choice on whether or not to buy from companies are allegedly giving funds to Islamic organisations. 
She is also calling for an investigation of these Australian organisations, alleging that the international counterparts of the Islamic bodies were found using the proceeds to fund terrorism. 
Ms Smith is the director and founder of ‘Halal Choices' and has made a shopping guide to inform shoppers about which companies are 'Halal Certified' - meaning their foods are appropriate for Muslims to consume. 
To become Halal-certified, a company must pay an ongoing fee to an Islamic body to gain certification. This certification deems that the product is acceptable to be prepared in accordance with Muslim law. 
She argues that Australians are being ‘deceived’ by food companies who are not open about funding Islamic bodies through ‘Halal certification’. 
‘I believe that as non-Muslims we should have a choice of whether or not we want to practice and fund Islamic religious ritual practices with our everyday grocery purchases,’ said Ms Smith. 
Dr Muhammad Khan, the CEO of Halal Australia, said the fact that the money from Halal certification went to mosques was not an issue. 
'It is absolutely not necessary to talk about this subject matter,' he told The ABC. 'Don't [Kosher certification organisations] fund their own synagogues? Why can't the Islamic certification body give donations to mosque projects?' 
Ms Smith insists that she does not encourage any boycott of the products, clarifying that she is ‘all about choices and giving people information so they can make their own informed decisions.' 
‘As a wife and a mother of three who does the shopping, I thought I should do something to take responsibility for what we bring into the household.’ 
The mother-of-three feels that at present Australia’s culture and core values are at risk. ‘I’m passionate about Australia – our values, our culture and especially our freedoms that have been hard fought for. 
'In Australia, we generally have freedom of speech, equality, democracy and freedom of religion,' she said during a speech at a forum in March this year. 
‘I believe Halal certification is in opposition to these values.’ 
On her website, Ms Smith encourages people to lobby the companies and government, suggesting they send the message: 'I do not wish to support any brand that pays an Islamic religious tax to have their product halal certified. 
'Less than 2% of this population is Muslim and I do not want to fund special religious rituals or political campaigns to increase the presence of Sharia Law in Australia. 
'Please respect consumers and give them/us the necessary information so we can make our own choices.' 
Ms Smith is also concerned about the impact of the extra expense of Halal-certified production on the cost of the final product. 
‘In chicken processing plants at Steggles, six fulltime, Muslim-only slaughtermen are employed,’ claims Ms Smith. 
‘Two of these employees who do not actual slaughter the chickens, but their jobs are to say prayers over them.' 
‘From my point of view, I don’t need people there, paid on a fulltime basis, to pray over the chickens.’ 
Ms Smith is questioning how much these processes cost considering it is a service that she, as a Christian, does not want nor require. 
‘The figures are huge but companies won’t disclose them because they have signed non-disclosure forms.’ 
Ms Smith argues the companies are failing to disclose what fees are being paid, their involvement with Halal Cerification authorities, where the money is going and even frequently failing to label their product as ‘halal-certified’. 
‘I have a problem with funding being imposed upon me. ‘People shouldn’t be paying money towards those causes every time they buy groceries.’ 
Ms Smith is concerned about how the funds are being used Islamic Certification authorities and is advocating for an investigation. 
‘The reality is that overseas it has been proven that the certification fees are going towards funding terrorism,’ said Ms Smith. 
‘I feel so passionate because big companies, like Nestle and Sanitarium, pay big halal certification fees but don’t make it publically known so consumers can’t make a choice of whether or not they want to pay more. 
‘We give information to the consumer because Australians have every right to buy or not to buy the products. She is deeply concerned, alleging that many companies are paying unnecessary fees for food products that are already Halal. 
‘Capilano honey pays certification fees, yet honey is universally considered halal. 
It is the same with white milk and yet Parmalat pays fees for certification,’ said Ms Smith. 
Ms Smith eamiled Capilano regarding the halal certification, and received a response which said that while honey was already considered halal under Islamic law, 'it is our customer's requirement to provide halal certification in order for us to conduct business with them,' reported The Sydney Morning Herald. 
'This sounds like extortion to me.
