Former Egyptian President, Muslim Brotherhood, Leader, and Friend of Obama SENTENCED TO DEATH!

Last month, a man who worked on Obama's Presidential campaign was also sentenced to death in Egypt for his support of the Jihadist Muslim Brotherhood organization.

From AFP:
Cairo (AFP) - An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 other people to death for their role in a mass jailbreak during the 2011 uprising. 
Hours after the ruling, gunmen shot dead two judges, a prosecutor and their driver in the strife-torn Sinai Peninsula, in the first such attack on the judiciary in the region. 
Morsi, sitting in a caged dock in the blue uniform of convicts after already been sentenced to 20 years for inciting violence, raised his fists defiantly when the verdict was read. 
Judge Shabaan El-Shamy handed down the same sentence to more than 100 other defendants including Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Badei, already sentenced to death in another trial, and his deputy Khairat al-Shater. 
Morsi, elected president in 2012 as the Brotherhood's compromise candidate after Shater was disqualified, ruled for only a year before mass protests spurred the military to overthrow him in July 2013. 
He was among dozens of Islamist leaders detained during a crackdown that left hundreds of Morsi supporters dead.

Feds Say, Hacker Commandeered Commercial Airline, Briefly Flew Plane SIDEWAYS

What the fuck?!?

From Wired:
A SECURITY RESEARCHER kicked off a United Airlines flight last month after tweeting about security vulnerabilities in its system had previously taken control of an airplane and caused it to briefly fly sideways, according to an application for a search warrant filed by an FBI agent. 
Chris Roberts, a security researcher with One World Labs, told the FBI agent during an interview in February that he had hacked the in-flight entertainment system, or IFE, on an airplane and overwrote code on the plane’s Thrust Management Computer while aboard the flight. He was able to issue a climb command and make the plane briefly change course, the document states. 
“He stated that he thereby caused one of the airplane engines to climb resulting in a lateral or sideways movement of the plane during one of these flights,” FBI Special Agent Mark Hurley wrote in his warrant application (.pdf). “He also stated that he used Vortex software after comprising/exploiting or ‘hacking’ the airplane’s networks. He used the software to monitor traffic from the cockpit system.” 
Hurley filed the search warrant application last month after Roberts was removed from a United Airlines flight from Chicago to Syracuse, New York, because he published a facetious tweet suggesting he might hack into the plane’s network. 
Upon landing in Syracuse, two FBI agents and two local police officers escorted him from the plane and interrogated him for several hours. They also seized two laptop computers and several hard drives and USB sticks. 
Although the agents did not have a warrant when they seized the devices, they told Roberts a warrant was pending. A media outlet in Canada obtained the application for the warrant today and published it online. The information outlined in the warrant application reveals a far more serious situation than Roberts has previously disclosed.

Did The Pope Give Mahmoud Abbas a Handjob?

Black Pope Francis Praises Mahmoud Abbas As An 'Angel of Peace'

From Will at THE OTHER NEWS:

Black Pope Francis meets 'Angel of Peace' . (INN).

Pope Francis praised Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas as an "angel of peace" during the meeting at the Vatican. 

Francis made the compliment during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. He presented Abbas with a medallion and explained that it represented the angel of peace "destroying the bad spirit of war." 

Francis said he thought the gift was appropriate since "you are an angel of peace." During his 2014 visit to Israel and the West Bank, Francis called both Abbas and Israeli President Shimon Peres men of peace. 

The meeting at the Vatican also comes a day before the pontiff is due to canonize two Palestinian nuns, who will become the first Palestinian Arabs to gain sainthood. Hmmm....One 'Palestinian nun only lived three years in 'Palestine'. 

Related: Mariam Baouardy 'Palestinian' Saint to be, was nearly murdered by Muslim, only lived three years in Palestine.

The truth is, Mahmoud Abbas wrote his Doctoral Dissertation on the idea that "Zionists" conspired with Nazis to create the Holocaust of Jews, to give the Zionists an excuse to establish Israel as a state.

In other words, his Doctoral Dissertation, and the later book published under his name based upon that Dissertation, are an expression of conspiracy theory and Holocaust Denial:

In the book, Abbas argues that the Nazi-perpetrated Holocaust had been exaggerated. He further claimed that those Jews which were killed by the Nazis were actually the victims of a Zionist-Nazi plot aimed to fuel vengeance against Jews and to expand their mass extermination.
Another source:
The book repeatedly attempts to cast doubt on the fact that the Nazis slaughtered 6 million Jews, according to a translation provided by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. 
"Following the war," he writes, "word was spread that six million Jews were amongst the victims and that a war of extermination was aimed primarily at the Jews...The truth is that no one can either confirm or deny this figure. In other words, it is possible that the number of Jewish victims reached six million, but at the same time it is possible that the figure is much smaller -- below one million." 
Abbas denies that the gas chambers were used to murder Jews, quoting a "scientific study" to that effect by French Holocaust-denier Robert Faurisson. 
Abbas' book then asserts: "The historian and author Raoul Hilberg thinks that the figure does not exceed 890,000." 
That is, of course, utterly false. Hilberg, a distinguished historian and author of the classic study "The Destruction of the European Jews," has never said or written any such thing. 
Abbas believes the 6 million figure is the product of a Zionist conspiracy: "It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement...is to inflate this figure so that their gains will be greater," he writes. "This led them to emphasize this figure in order to gain the solidarity of international public opinion with Zionism. Many scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning conclusions -- fixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few hundred thousand." 
Another falsehood. In fact, no serious scholar proposes such a figure. 
After reducing the magnitude of the Nazi slaughter so that it no longer seems to have been a full-scale Holocaust, Abbas seeks to absolve the Nazis by blaming the Zionist leadership for whatever killings did take place. According to Abbas, "A partnership was established between Hitler's Nazis and the leadership of the Zionist movement...[the Zionists gave] permission to every racist in the world, led by Hitler and the Nazis, to treat Jews as they wish, so long as it guarantees immigration to Palestine." 
In addition to encouraging the persecution of Jews so they would immigrate to the Holy Land, the Zionist leaders actually wanted Jews to be murdered, because -- in Abbas' words -- "having more victims meant greater rights and stronger privilege to join the negotiation table for dividing the spoils of war once it was over. However, since Zionism was not a fighting partner -- suffering victims in a battle -- it had no escape but to offer up human beings, under any name, to raise the number of victims, which they could then boast of at the moment of accounting."

Evidence of Real LIve "Moderate Muslims" - Parents of Students Picket Islamic School Because It Has Introduced New Curriculum Which is "Too Fundamental"

AUSTRALIA – Adelaide – More than 100 angry parents have picketed the Islamic College of South Australia, worried it is becoming too fundamental after it cut music and sport from its curriculum, described pianos as evil and stopped singing the national anthem at assemblies.

From Facebook.


FEDERAL Education Minister Christopher Pyne has warned of the potential radicalisation of Muslim students in Islamic schools, following another parent protest against management of the Islamic College of SA.
Parents rallying outside the school yesterday demanded the resignation of its board and called for State Government intervention.
They claim a hardline school board has introduced a stricter form of Islam, including more segregation of male and female students, while firing experienced staff and lowering education standards.
Mr Pyne has written to the school and state Education Minister Susan Close about the allegations against the school.

NTSB: Amtrak assistant conductor heard engineer say train struck by “something”


NBCNews video: Passenger on Amtrak Locomotive Says His Train Was Also Struck by Object
A passenger traveling along the same route the night that Amtrak Train 188 derailed in Philadelphia told NBC News that an object hit his train, shattering the window. 
The account from Johns Hopkins student Justin Landis makes him the third person to report a projectile hitting a train Tuesday night in that area, and comes a day after the National Transportation Safety Board said investigators were working to determine whether something struck the doomed Amtrak train before it derailed. Eight people were killed and about 200 others were injured in the accident.

France: Mayor of Venelles Who Wants To BAN ISLAM, Hospitalized, Involuntarily (which means "Psychiatric Issues")

Robert Chardon, the (Bouches-du-Rhône) UMP mayor who tweeted many times that Islam must be banned in France was forcibly hospitalized this Friday.
Hospitalization was requested by someone close to him for reasons of ‘incoherent statements’. Robert Chardon, who is in cancer treatment, confirmed his statements and assured everyone his Twitter account had not been hacked.
“Absurd statements”
To say the least, the UMP vice-president (Nathalie Kosciusko-Morizet) says that “she requested an ‘exclusion provision” for his absurd statements which do not reflect in any way UMP values.
Nicolas Sarkozy also reacted through tweets on his Twitter account. He “condemns this proposal” from the mayor of the 8,000 population borough:
According to Robert Chardon, “anyone that practises Islam must be immediately returned to the border”. He is asking for an amendment to the Constitution to achieve his goal: “I am asking to abolish the legislation of 1905 and to proclaim the Republic favors Christian values”.
He wants to be a candidate for the regional and presidential elections.
Should the UMP party evict him, he says he will “set up a new party”.
P.S.: Updated follow-up story from Figaro: he was suddenly hospitalized for health reasons as per his cancer treatment…
Involuntary hospitalisation confinement“I risk exclusion”, Robert Chardon acknowledges to AFP (Agence France Presse). “Should this be the case, I will set up a new political party”, confirms the elected official who wants to be a candidate for the regional and presidential elections.
As per AFP who cites a source close to Robert Chardon, he had been treated for some months for cancer and was forcibly hospitalised this Friday afternoon. This hospitalisation request was issued by “a third party as a result of his incoherent statements”.

So, if the story here is correct,



On Sunday morning, a group of young Muslim immigrants interrupted a Catholic procession in honor of the Virgin Mary with verbal insults, shouting, and threats as the group passed in front of the Islamic Cultural Center in Conselice, a small town in lower Romagna.
In predominantly Catholic Italy, the month of May is dedicated to the traditional processions carrying a statue or image of the Madonna, usually accompanied by the singing of hymns and praying of the rosary.
The Marian procession is a tradition in Conselice, and every year, the faithful gather at the Piazza Foresti and then proceed along a number of streets including the Via Dante Alighieri, which also passes in front of the Islamic Cultural Center. On Sunday, after the 9:30 a.m. Mass, a group of 100 faithful, including several small children preparing to receive their first Holy Communion, began the procession as usual.

Sources: U.S. Special Operations forces kill ISIS commander Abu Sayyaf in Syria raid

From CNN:
(CNN)U.S. Special Operations forces killed a senior ISIS commander during a raid intended to capture him in eastern Syria overnight Friday to Saturday, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter said. 
The ISIS commander, Abu Sayyaf, fought capture and was killed in the raid in al-Amr, he said in a statement. Carter said he had ordered the raid at the direction of President Barack Obama. All the U.S. troops involved returned safely. 
"Abu Sayyaf was involved in ISIL's military operations and helped direct the terrorist organization's illicit oil, gas, and financial operations as well," he said. 
His wife, an Iraqi named Umm Sayyaf, was captured and is currently in military detention in Iraq, National Security Council spokeswoman Bernadette Meehan said in a statement. 
Umm Sayyaf "played an important role in ISIL's terrorist activities, and may have been complicit in what appears to have been the enslavement of a young Yezidi woman rescued last night," Carter said. ISIL is an alternative acronym for ISIS. 
Umm Sayyaf is believed to have been involved in human trafficking and hostage taking. About a dozen ISIS fighters were killed in the firefight at a residential building in Deir Ezzor, the sources said. 
Abu Sayyaf is not a name familiar to many ISIS watchers. But the fact that the United States clearly had him under close watch was ready to put its forces at risk by going deep into Syria to carry out the raid suggests they saw the target as very valuable.

NY Times:

Amtrak Train Possibly Hit Before Wreck

PHILADELPHIA — The Amtrak train that derailed Tuesday, killing eight people and injuring more than 200, may have been struck by an object before it careened off the tracks, an assistant conductor on the train told investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board.
At a news conference on Friday, Robert L. Sumwalt, the safety board official who is leading the investigation, said an assistant conductor had reported that she believed she heard a radio transmission in which an engineer on a regional line said his train had been struck by a projectile and the engineer on the Amtrak train replied that his had been struck, too.
Mr. Sumwalt said that investigators had found a fist-size circular area of impact on the left side of the Amtrak train’s windshield and that they had asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation to analyze it. He said that the F.B.I. had been called in because it has the forensics expertise needed for the investigation, but that it had not yet begun its analysis.


An image provided by the SEPTA line shows the shattered windshield of one of its trains, which was struck by an unknown object shortly before the Amtrak derailment.

He said that investigators had also interviewed the engineer and found him “extremely cooperative,” and that the engineer had said he was not fatigued or ill at the time of the accident. But he could not remember anything about the derailment.
Investigators asked the engineer, Brandon Bostian, whether he recalled any projectiles, and he said he did not.
“He was specifically asked that question, and he did not recall anything of that sort,” Mr. Sumwalt said. “But then again, he reported that he does not have any recollection of anything past North Philadelphia.”
The assistant conductor, however, who was working in the cafe car, heard Mr. Bostian talking to an engineer on the Septa regional rail line who said his train had been “hit by a rock or shot at,” according to Mr. Sumwalt. She said she thought she heard Mr. Bostian reply that his train had also been struck.
“Right after she recalled hearing this conversation between her engineer and the Septa engineer, she said she felt a rumbling, and her train leaned over and her car went over on its side,” Mr. Sumwalt said.
Jerri Williams, a spokeswoman at Septa, confirmed that the windshield of one of its trains had been shattered by a projectile near the North Philadelphia station about 9:10 p.m. on Tuesday, about 12 minutes before the Amtrak train derailed.
“We have reports of trains’ being struck by objects in this area about two to three times a month,” Ms. Williams said. Mostly, she said, the objects are thrown by children and do no damage.
The safety board has asked to interview the engineer of the Septa train that was hit by the projectile, and Septa is cooperating, Ms. Williams said.
For days, speculation about the cause of the accident has centered on Mr. Bostian. Investigators reported earlier this week that the train accelerated suddenly a minute before the derailment and that Mr. Bostian applied the emergency brake seconds before the cars careened off the tracks, striking nearby utility poles.
“He recalls ringing the train bell as he went through North Philadelphia Station, as required,” Mr. Sumwalt said. “He has no recollection of anything past that.”
Investigators said that Mr. Bostian had been “extremely” cooperative during his interview and that he had “reported no problems with his train handling.”

Italy: 12 Year Old Girl Viciously Beaten For Wearing Crucifix - Perpetrator is "Boy of African Origin" --- In Other Words, a MUSLIM

Moderate Muslim

From ANSA:
A schoolboy of African origin attacked a 12-year-old-girl at a school in central Italy because she was wearing a crucifix on a neck chain, police said Friday. T 
he boy punched the girl violently in the back at the entrance to a middle school in the town of Terni on Thursday and the girl’s mother caught the boy, who subsequently told Carabinieri paramilitary police he attacked the girl because she was wearing a crucifix, police sources said. 
The boy, who first attended the school some three weeks ago, had bullied the girl over the past four days, insulting her and picking on her in other ways all because she was wearing the crucifix, the sources said.
I know what the answer to this problem is: MORE MUSLIMS

What about when we have too many Muslims?


What about if Muslims are killing us?


What if Muslims say they want to destroy everything we stand for?


What if Muslims beat little girls bloody?


What if Muslims rape our wives and daughters, as booty, the spoils of war?


The answer to all problems is MORE MUSLIMS.

Got it?

BBC Compares British Jihadist Preacher Anjem Choudary To Gandhi

Homo for Allah

From the Express:
Stunned viewers watched home affairs editor Mark Easton criticising the Government’s plans to silence hate-mongers such as Choudary, who has refused to condemn the killing of Lee Rigby, by asking whether great historical figures would pass the proposed test. 
The newsman carried on by saying extreme views were needed in order to “challenge very established values”. 
Speaking on BBC News at Ten last night, the home affairs editor went further and, following a news piece on Choudary, Mr Easton said: 
“It’s one thing to ban someone for inciting hatred or violence, but quite another to pass a law that silences anyone who challenges established values. 
“I was in Parliament Square today – a statue of Gandhi looking down at me who was jailed for being extremist; Mandela who was jailed for being an extremist. 
“History tells us that extreme views are sometimes needed to challenge very established values that people at the time hold so dear.” 
Mr Easton’s comments have provoked anger against the public service broadcaster. 
Speaking on Twitter, Choudary was defiant, even saying: 
“The comparison with Mandela & Ghandi are false, they are kufaar heading to hellfire whilst I am a Muslim.”

You only live once and when you're dead you're done

So let the good times roll

B.B. King couldn't play a chord. Not one. He was strictly a one note at a time player.
But what he did with those notes was legendary, mythical. 

No other bluesman since Robert Johnson had the impact on so many forms of popular music that B.B. King and his great love Lucille did. 

The first "grown up" records I ever owned were birthday gifts from my mom in the very early 70's when I was 11 or 12. One was a Johhny Cash Greatest Hits (to that time)
and the other was the just released B.B. King Guess Who 
I've been hooked ever since.

The Beatles were the band that made me pick up a guitar in the first place, but it was B.B. King that introduced me to the Blues and started me on my lifelong musical passion

I've been to well over 100 concerts (that's when I stopped counting) in my 53 years (the ever present tinnitus is delicious) but by far and without a doubt the best was at Reading's River Days Fest in the late 80s or early 90s. 
B.B. King was playing. My mom, working where she did at the time, was able to score my friend and I 3rd row seats. 
The concert was held in a huge white tent, so we were very close to the band and the speakers.
Close enough that when his horn player James "Boogaloo" Bolden began tossing his head side to side we were sprayed with sweat. 
It was hot already that summer but in that tent it was broiling. 
And B.B. King never let it cool. 
The music and ambiance that summer night, the call and response with the audience, his preaching of the blues, made that concert feel like an old time tent revival meeting. 

  When B.B. King played, no matter how deep the Blues and sorrow he was singing about, he just couldn't hide the sheer joy in his playing.

But now Lucille is quiet and lonely and no one will ever make love to her that way again.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Gets Death Penalty in Boston Marathon Bombing

BOSTON — A federal jury on Friday condemned Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, a failed college student, to death for setting off bombs at the 2013 Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured hundreds more in the worst terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001.
The jury of seven women and five men, which last month convicted Mr. Tsarnaev, 21, of all 30 charges against him, 17 of which carry the death penalty, took more than 14 hours to reach its decision.
It was the first time a federal jury had sentenced a terrorist to death in the post-Sept. 11 era, according to Kevin McNally, director of the Federal Death Penalty Resource Counsel Project, which coordinates the defense in capital punishment cases.

Middle East expert warns Islamic State planning something Bigger then 9/11

Middle East expert warns Islamic State planning something Bigger then 9/11

Middle East expert warns Islamic State planning something bigger then 9/11.

I made a mistake in reading Baghdadi's voice message: ISIS al-Baghdadi is preparing something very big against the West, bigger than 9/11.

ISIS Baghdadi is also giving an approximate date and could be around the coming month of Ramadan (July).

An earlier comment from Anonymous here at IBA:
Anonymous said...

Revisit that thread on what appeared to be a bullet hole in the glass....related? If I were a conductor and experienced a bullet passing through the window near me, the threat of shots reaching passengers might encourage me to get the hell out of dodge ...FAST.

Did a Projectile have anything to do with Amtrak Crash?

There is this theory out there that the Amtrak train had bullet holes in the glass at the front of the train where the Engineer sits.

I gave no credence to the bullet hole theory, because I thought,

"Well, why would the Engineer refuse to talk to the Police IF HE WAS SHOT AT?"

But maybe the answer is obvious: The authorities were bound and determined to NOT call this an incident of Jihadist Terror.

VladTepes: Did a Projectile have anything to do with Amtrak Crash?

Derailment and Crash of Amtrak Train from Washington to NYC, passing through Port Richmond in NE Philadelphia
The media is discussing possible causes to the crash. However, one possibility mentioned but not being discussed at all in the media, is this:  Did a PROJECTILE that hit a SEPTA Philadelphia commuter train traveling northbound to Trenton, and busting the engineer’s window, about 15 minutes prior to the Amtrak derailment and only 3.5 miles away, crippling the train, have anything to do with the Amtrak derailment and crash?
Amtrak and Septa trains run parallel to one another from Philadelphia to Trenton (see figure 1).
Waiting to hear more from the blackbox report.
So far, nothing more from the media on this projectile.
So five minutes after the Septa train was hit, Amtrak derailed. It’s being reported that it was going over 100mph at derailment.

1955: Rosa Parks Refuses to Sit at the Back of the Bus ----- 2015: Women Told to Sit at the Back of a University of Western Sydney Lecture

The Islamic Veil is The Chains of Modern Slavery

From the Australian Telegraph:

Alabama, 1955
Rosa Parks, a 42-year-old African American woman who worked as a seamstress, boarded this Montgomery City bus to go home from work. On this bus on that day, Rosa Parks initiated a new era in the American quest for freedom and equality.
She sat near the middle of the bus, just behind the 10 seats reserved for whites. Soon all of the seats in the bus were filled. When a white man entered the bus, the driver (following the standard practice of segregation) insisted that all four blacks sitting just behind the white section give up their seats so that the man could sit there. 
Australia, 2015
Women were segregated and asked to sit at the back of a lecture by the radical group Hizb ut-Tahrir at a Muslim students group at the University of Western Sydney last night.
At the event in Parramatta, men and women were asked to sit apart. The Daily Telegraph attended the talk – and this reporter sat with the women before being politely told “brothers to the front” and “sisters” to the back.
The women were ushered through a door marked “sisters” at the rear of the hall, while the “brothers” entered through another door and were told to take their place in “the front five rows”. 
Alabama, 1955
Mrs. Parks, who was an active member of the local NAACP, quietly refused to give up her seat.
It took someone with the courage and character of Rosa Parks to strike with lightning. And it required the commitment of the entire African American community to fan the flames ignited by that lightning into the fires of the civil rights revolution. 
Australia, 2015: white leftists and feminists remain completely and shamefully silent about the treatment of Muslim women. Had they been on that Alabama bus 60 years ago, they would have looked away.

Amtrak Train SPED UP From 70 mph to 102 mph Before Crashing

From Philly.com:
Right before its fatal derailment on Tuesday night, Amtrak Train 188 accelerated significantly as it approached the Frankford Junction curve, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday. 
In barely a minute, its speed jumped from 70 m.p.h. to 102 m.p.h. three seconds before the crash, said NTSB member Robert Sumwalt at a news briefing. 
The speed limit in that area is 50 m.p.h. Sumwalt said it was unclear whether the engineer, identified as Brandon Bostian, 32, of Forest Hills, N.Y., had accelerated manually, but it was known that he did attempt to deploy the emergency brake. 
Bostian’s attorney has told ABC-TV that his client had no memory of the crash.

Harry Maryles adds insult to injury

I once thought Chicago-based rabbi Harry Maryles was a pretty good blogger on many pressing issues. There were some points on which I disagreed with him, but overall, he did seem to be on the mark with many topics.

Unfortunately, he's now thrown away much of what I would like to appreciate about him for the sake of attacking Pamela Geller (and by extension, Robert Spencer), by accusing her of being an inciter, and otherwise letting jihadists off the hook:
I don’t know whether Pamela Geller is a fool or just plain evil. But one thing she is for sure is wrong. And I am outraged by her tactics.
But you're not outraged at the twosome who tried to murder people at the convention, Maryles?
There are few rational people in the world that justify what these 2 terrorists tried to do. Including the vast majority of Muslims. They were unquestioningly evil - despite the fact that they believed they were defending the honor of Islam. But does that make what Pamela Geller did OK? Not in my view.
Uh oh. Here's where he goes soft as mud on Muslims as a whole, and ignores what's said about how there may be moderate Muslims, but no moderate Islam. It gets worse:
The attack was precipitated by Ms. Geller and friends by basically spitting in the face of Islam and calling it free speech. She may have that right. Free speech is protected in this country no matter how hateful it is. Unless it can cause harm to the public. Like yelling ‘Fire’ in a crowded theater when there is no actual fire. The question is, was that the case here? Was what Ms. Geller did here comparable to that?
Gee, what about all the times when Islamofascists did worse than spit, by murdering Jews in the name of the Koran? Maryles misses the point by galaxies - Geller and company were trying to send a message that they will not let Islamic violence silence or intimidate free people. They were also running the contest as a special form of support for those murdered in the name of jihad, like Charlie Hebdo's contributors. And instead of appreciating the idea they had in mind, all he can do is say just what the left would want to hear? Maryles is one of the dumbest people I've ever known.
The event she and others hosted was a contest to see who would create the best caricature of the Islam’s founder, Muhammad. Drawing images of Muhammad is at the very least frowned upon if not outright forbidden by Islamic law. And if it is done in any kind for disrespectful way, it is a cause of great outrage.

Which will inspire a few of the Jihadists among them to try and murder those who do . By now that is no secret. That’s what precipitated the massacre at the offices of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo last January in France. Over the years they had published a series of embarrassing caricatures of Muhammad. And they were not the first to experience terror as the result of insulting Islam’s founder.
Excuse me? Here's where a flaw turns up: EVERY way Muhammed were to be drawn is considered disrespectful to Muslims. In the mind of an Islamofascist, drawing Muhammed at all is haram (taboo). The most telling sign Maryles is badly informed (and uses the wrong booleans - "for" instead of "of"). And he doesn't make it any better when he dismisses Charlie Hebdo's caricatures as mere embarrassments.
What possible motive could she have had in holding a competition like this? Protecting free speech? Free speech was doing just fine before she started disparaging other religions. By holding this competition she is perceived even by decent Muslims to be spitting in their face! It is pure folly to do that, not only because you are daring extremists to massacre you, your fellow organizers and participants... but because it is reprehensible to publicly disparage the icons of other religions. It spreads hate and generates retaliation from Jihadists all too eager exact revenge. Which is what happened at Charlie Hebdo in France. And was attempted in Garland, Texas.
Oh really, is it? You have cases of gays and lesbians suing Christian businesses for daring to object to their lifestyle and mentality, while otherwise ignoring Muslim businesses for the same. And, you have CAIR suing writers for exposing their own evil deeds. What else doesn't Maryles understand in his poor education? What he's doing is just what evil misogynists who believe women are to blame for sexual assault because of how they dress or look. In fact, one of the commenters asked:
Here's a similar question:

Suppose signs were posted in a predominantly muslim neighborhood in America that warned that any woman wearing shorts or a tank-top would be subject to beating. Suppose that women have been beaten and murdered when they ignored the signs. Would not the proper response to that be to keep organizing marches through the town with women wearing shorts? Until it became clear that it was safe for them to do it even when alone? Would you consider it wrong to organize that march?

Set aside the issue of whether Geller is self-serving, unlikable or unintelligent, and tell me whether you would call the 'women in shorts' marches evil, despicable, and reprehensible, or whether the marches would be exactly what's needed.
Yes, I want to know what this two-face would say if women were to protest a horrific murder/rape with a special march through a Muslim neighborhood. Maryles is the same man who allegedly finds Haredi extremism reprehensible, but his comments about Geller's contest put that in doubt.

Clifford May had a much better argument than Maryles, and said:
There can be no exceptions to protect the sensibilities of those perceived as "marginalized, ‎embattled, and victimized," nor to mollify Islamic State terrorists -- who have issued a ‎communiqué threatening to "slaughter" Geller -- and such characters as Anjem Choudary, ‎the British Muslim activist who on television last week asserted that by now everyone should ‎understand that drawing Muhammad "carries the death penalty in Islam." His further ‎implication: Islamic law now applies to everyone everywhere. Obey or die.‎
Is that what Maryles wants people to think he favors? For now, I've concluded that most of his arguments on extremism in the Haredi world are unconvincing, and most of his tone way too soft.

ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi: “Islam Was Never For A Day The Religion Of Peace. Islam Is The Religion Of War”

Ugh, Ugh - Uhh uhh ahh ahh ahhhh  ahhh ahhhhhhh!!!

From PJM:
ISIS’ Al-Furqan media today released new audio of an address by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, with written translations in English, Russian, Turkish, French and German. 
The release comes as rumors of the caliph suffering a debilitating injury in a coalition airstrike have been circulating. 
In the speech, Baghdadi calls on “every Muslim in every place to perform hijrah to the Islamic State or fight in his land, wherever that may be.” 
“Do not think the war that we are waging is the Islamic State’s war alone. Rather, it is the Muslims’ war altogether. It is the war of every Muslim in every place, and the Islamic State is merely the spearhead in this war. It is but the war of the people of faith against the people of disbelief, so march forth to your war O Muslims,” he says. 
“March forth everywhere, for it is an obligation upon every Muslim who is accountable before Allah. And whoever stays behind or flees, Allah (the Mighty and Majestic) will be angry with him and will punish him with a painful torment.” 
Baghdadi stresses that “whoever thinks that it is within his capacity to conciliate with the Jews, Christians, and other disbelievers, and for them to conciliate with him, such that he coexists with them and they coexist with him while he is upon his religion and upon tawhīd (monotheism), then he has belied the explicit statement of his Lord.” 
“Islam,” he adds, “is the religion of war.” 
“And if the Crusaders today have begun to bother the Muslims who continue to live in the lands of the cross by monitoring them, arresting them, and questioning them, then soon they will begin to displace them and take them away either dead, imprisoned, or homeless. They will not leave anyone amongst them except one who apostatizes from his religion and follows theirs,” Baghdadi continued, adding Americans “claim to defend Islam and the Muslims” but “indeed, they lie.”

ISIS To Yazidi Girls: If You Don’t Willingly Convert, Once We Rape You, POOF, YOU ARE A MUSLIM

The Muslims Are Restless

Yeah, Islam is evil.

But the thing that is truly amazing is that it is so highly repsected when it is so fucking stupid.

From CNS:
(CNSNews.com) – Yazidi girls kidnapped by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria jihadists were given the chance to convert to Islam but told if they refused they would automatically become Muslims anyway the moment an ISIS fighter raped them, U.S. lawmakers heard on Wednesday. 
During a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on ISIS’ war on religious minorities, a representative of a California-based, non-profit organization recounted the testimony of some of the Yazidi girls she met and counseled during recent trips to Iraq. 
“In one night [in Sinjar town in northern Iraq] ISIS came and took all these girls,” said Jacqueline Isaac, vice-president of the group Roads of Success. 
“And they told them first – they gave them an option. They said, ‘Will you become a Muslim? Will you convert to Islam?’ “And many of them said no,” Isaac continued. 
“And they told them, ‘You are going to be Muslim regardless, because we are going to sleep with you. And the moment that we do that, once we rape you, you will be Muslim.’” 
Foreign Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Ed Royce (R-Calif.) asked whether the kidnapping and sale of women and girls from religious minorities was “an outcome of lawlessness, or is it part of a more deliberate ISIS policy to destroy and to subjugate those who do not share their fanaticism.” 
Isaac replied that it was the ISIS philosophy, with regard to Yazidis in particular, not only to torture, but to destroy them. 
“They want them off the face of this earth.” Isaac said while the ISIS atrocities had begun with the Yazidis, they would ultimately affect not just Christians but “every woman that doesn’t fit within their philosophy.”

UK: Cameron's First Move After Election, New Laws to "Combat Poisonous Islamist Ideology"

Cameron was heard to say, "Hey Muslims, you can suck my fat white cock if you think you're gonna get away with anymore of your Allah shit ..."

From the Times of India:
LONDON: In what is his first major policy announcement since winning last week's general election, Prime Minister David Cameron on Wednesday announced new laws to combat a "poisonous Islamist ideology". 
The PM announced plans for a new Counter-Extremism Bill at the first meeting of the new National Security Council (NSC) in Downing Street. 
The new legislation will include introducing banning orders for extremist organizations who seek to undermine democracy or use hate speech in public places, new extremism disruption orders to restrict people who seek to radicalise young people and powers to close premises where extremists seek to influence others. 
It also includes strengthening the powers of the Charity Commission to root out charities who misappropriate funds towards extremism and terrorism, further immigration restrictions on extremists and a strengthened role for Ofcom to take action against channels which broadcast extremist content. 
Cameron said, "For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It's often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that's helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach."

UK: Met Police Arrest Record Number of Jihadist Muslims

Half of these arrests are "related to Syria", which means ISIS.

From the BBC:
Terror-related arrests in England, Wales and Scotland reached record levels last year, when 338 people were held, Scotland Yard has said. 
More than half of those arrests were related to Syria, Met Police assistant commissioner Mark Rowley said. Police said more than 700 potential terror suspects are now thought to have travelled to Syria. 
About half of those people - said to be of "significant concern" - are believed to have since returned to the UK. The total number of terror-related arrests was up from 254 in 2013/14 - an increase of about a third. 
Of the arrests, 56 related to suspects under the age 20 - a figure that police say represents "an emerging trend". 
Suspects were arrested for offences ranging from fundraising for extremist causes to plotting terrorist attacks.

Lindsay Lohan Converting to Islam?

Future ISIS Wife?

From the Daily Mail:
Lindsay Lohan was photographed carrying a copy of the Koran after her first day of community service in Brooklyn, New York, on Wednesday. T 
he actress - who is of Irish and Italian heritage and was raised as a Catholic - held a hard copy of the Muslim holy book in her arm as she finished a day of office work at a children's center. She reportedly arrived two hours late. 
It comes as the 28-year-old embarks on an 'emotional detox', giving up alcohol and dating. The Koran prescribes a lifestyle free of alcohol for Muslims - though readers of the book do not necessarily subscribe to the religion. 
It is not the first time Lindsay has shown an interest in other religions. During the height of her fame as a teen star, she wore a Kabbalah red string bracelet, which wards off misfortune brought about by the 'evil eye'. 
She was also rumored to be attending Kabbalah classes, and in 2012 she reportedly joined Courtney Love's Buddhist chanting group. Last year Lindsay described herself as a 'very spiritual person' in a docu-series with Oprah Winfrey. 
'I'm a very spiritual person and I've become more spiritual as time has gone on,' she told the talk show host. 'I'm really in touch, whether it's prayer or meditation... there are so many powers greater than me in the world. I've been blessed and lucky enough to have been given a gift to share with other people.'

Top Saudi Cleric Thankful Christianity Outlawed In His Country: “It Suffices Me Not To Hear Church Bells Ringing”

From Raymond Ibrahim:
Saudi Sheikh Adel al-Kalbani, former Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca and current prayer leader of Muhaisin Mosque in Riyadh, recently issued the following “tweet” on his personal Twitter account: “My beloved nation: It suffices me that you shelter me from hearing church bells ringing in you.” 
This is reminiscent of when another top ranking Saudi religious leader, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah declared in 2012 that it is “necessary to destroy all the churches of the region.” 
The similarities don’t end there. 
No mainstream media in the English language reported the 2012 anecdote till I did. And as of this moment, this anecdote concerning a leading Saudi cleric relishing the fact that no church bells can be heard in his nation is left completely unreported in Western media. Would that be the case if, say, a top Vatican official declared that he longs for the day when all mosques are banned in Italy? 
erhaps more ironic, the MSM is acquainted with Sheikh Adel al-Kalbani. The New York Times, for instance, has an entire spread about him. The “happy” and “hopeful” theme is how al-Kalbani managed to rise to the top in Saudi Arabia — which is apparently “tolerant” — by becoming the first black Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca.

The Pope Poses In His Death Shroud

From Reliapundit at the Astute Bloggers:
The Vatican officially recognized the state of Palestine in a new treaty finalized Wednesday, immediately sparking Israeli ire and accusations that the move hurt peace prospects. The treaty, which concerns the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestinian territory, is both deeply symbolic and makes explicit that the Holy See has switched its diplomatic recognition from the Palestine Liberation Organization to the state of Palestine. The Vatican had welcomed the decision by the U.N. General Assembly in 2012 to recognize a Palestinian state and had referred to the Palestine state since. But the treaty is the first legal document negotiated between the Holy See and the Palestinian state, giving the Vatican's former signs of recognition an unambiguous confirmation in a formal, bilateral treaty. "Yes, it's a recognition that the state exists," said the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi. 
The Israeli Foreign Ministry said it was "disappointed."
"This move does not promote the peace process and distances the Palestinian leadership from returning to direct and bilateral negotiations," the ministry said in a text message.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you, I will curse. 




VATICAN TO RECOGNIZE PALESTINE:  The Vatican has brokered at “treaty” with the “State of Palestine.” The treaty reportedly deals with the activities of the Catholic Church in Palestine. Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas is expected meet with Pope Francis over the weekend to finalize details.
Well, it’s all part of a global progressive movement. Pope Francis has been dogged by accusations that he is sympathetic to communism.  The Pope doesn’t help allay these concerns when he meets with Raul Castroreinstates a Marxist “liberation theology,” vocally anti-Israel Nicaraguan priest who won the Lenin Peace Prize,invites a Peruvian liberation theology priest to speak, and hosts the World Meeting of Popular Movements, where he said attendees must unite ”against the structural causes of poverty, inequality, the lack of work, land and shelter, the denial of social and labor rights,” and confront the “empire of money.”
