Why is this? Condi has never studied Islam. If you asked her about the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, she would say 'what's that?' If you asked her what is the 'universal message of Islam', a term I have seen several times lately, she would say "Peace and justice." She couldn't be more wrong. I don't even think she knows what the 'ummah' is and what its global concept means. It means NOTHING for a Muslim to lie and make committments they never intend to keep. Especially with infidels.
Dhimwits like Condi cannot grasp that the laws and goals of Islam overrule everything. She cannot grasp the concept of taqiyya and strategic retreat to jihad another day. She does not know what 'jizya' means, much less what dhimmitude is. She does not understand that returning the land Israel occupies to the Dar al Islam is paramount and never, ever will be compromised or forgotten. This concept Condi cannot understand.
Hamas' charter is Islam focused. They are fighting the jihad in every way. Hamas will tell Condi and the EUdhimmis 'sorta' what they want, but it will have so many exit clauses and conditions, it will be meaningless except to Condi and the EUdhimmis. For example, they will say we will recognize Israel if Israel returns to the 1967 'borders', give up East Jerusalem, and do this and do that. Amazingly, Condi and the EUdhimmis will take this meaningless piece of paper, and, like PM Neville Chamberlain before them, wave it in the air and say 'See, see, see, peace in our time.'
Many will say I am cynical and pessimistic. But I know Condi has not studied Islam beyond some Armstrong-Esposito romance novel, and in her own words after the Hamas victory said '"I've asked why nobody saw it coming...It does say something about us not having a good enough pulse."
You see, Condi thinks there are two Islams, good Islam and bad Islam. If only.
Another problem is inability to think out of the box. Fact: Palestine is a cesspool of terrorists, tribal warfare, and deep cult penetration. False Assumption: If the West does not finance the Palestinians, they will turn to Iran. What is wrong with that? Right now, Iran just has to finance terror runs and weapons. The West is doing the food and drink and spending money. I say let them have all the re$ponsibility. This isn't some vast geographic landscape like Afghanistan. Give it a chance. Israel may suffer horrific suicide bombings you say? Would they not if we continue to supply the food, drink and spending money. I say give it a go. But not Condi. She can't see that because she is islamo-ignorant. I know what you are thinking, 'She is not ignorant, she's smart.' Is she? If you understand all the items above, and you were Condi, would you fall for this 'Hudaybiyyah Treaty'.
I may be wrong. She won't fall for it. We can always hope. If I am wrong, I will admit it gladly.
In case you don't know, for Islam, peace will be achieved when the world is for Mohamedans, and Mohamedans only. Infidels are to be converted, enslaved (dhimmitude), or murdered. That's the justice part. Not exactly what Condi thinks,is it?
Senate Confirms Alito to Supreme Court
The former U.S. appeals court judge will quickly be sworn in at the Supreme Court before his expected appearance at Bush's annual State of the Union speech Tuesday evening with the White House's other new Supreme Court judge, Chief Justice John Roberts. Alito will be ceremonially sworn in a second time at a White House East Room appearance on Wednesday.
Fascinating over at Zombietime, with pictures and descriptions of Mohammed through the ages.
One causes as much pain & suffering in the world,

as when one gives offence.
It’s no surprise that Hamas considers the cutoff of foreign money to be “blackmail.” After all, that’s what a teenager always considers the threatened withholding of his allowance to be.
“Dad! You can’t do that; it’s not fair!”
According to this AP story,
A top Hamas official said Tuesday the Islamic militant group will not be “blackmailed” by international threats to cut off aid to the Palestinians and is searching for new sources of funding.
Excuse me sir, could you spare half a billion for a cup of coffee? You’d be helping out a poor mujahid…

Draw cartoons, or artistic depictions of Mohammed.
You don't need to be mean, or pornographic. Just draw him in everyday situations, like standing in line at Wal-Mart, or whatever comes to your mind.
Leave us a link here, so we can post them, or just post them on your own, if you have a blog.
Let's make this the new and omnipresent meme of the blogosphere.
UPDATE: Quite a few of you have kindly left links. However, some of the stuff which has been submitted is rather mean. I have no objection to your work. I am a believer in absolute free speech.
However, my goal here is to show how Muslims will get very angry at silly stuff. For instance, in the UK, several months back, public displays of Piglet were banned because they offended Muslims.
Therefore, think about it this way, the cuter, and sillier the drawing of Mohammed, the better.
If you are doing something more hardcore, I believe my man Dag at No Dhimmitude were be more than happy to take your submissions. Dag's blog is getting huge traffic because of his approach.
"DAMASCUS, Syria -- A new era in the struggle for Palestinian liberation is upon us. Through historic fair and free elections, the Palestinian people have spoken.
"Accordingly, America's long-standing tradition of supporting the oppressed's rights to self-determination should not waver. The United States, the European Union and the rest of the world should welcome the unfolding of the democratic process, and the commitment to aid should not falter. Last week's victory of the Change and Reform Party in the Palestinian legislative elections signals a new hope for an occupied people.....
"Our society has always celebrated pluralism in keeping with the unique history and traditions of the Holy Land. In recognizing Judeo-Christian traditions, Muslims nobly vie for and have the greatest incentive and stake in preserving the Holy Land for all three Abrahamic faiths. In addition, fair governance demands that the Palestinian nation be represented in a pluralistic environment. A new breed of Islamic leadership is ready to put into practice faith-based principles in a setting of tolerance and unity....
"As the Israelis value their own security, Palestinians are entitled to their fundamental rights to live in dignity and security. We ask them to reflect on the peace that our peoples once enjoyed and the protection that Muslims gave the Jewish community worldwide. We will exert good-faith efforts to remove the bitterness that Israel's occupation has succeeded in creating, alienating a generation of Palestinians. We call on them not to condemn posterity to endless bloodshed and a conflict in which dominance is illusory. There must come a day when we will live together, side by side once again....
"We appeal to the American people's sense of fairness to judge this conflict in light of the great thoughts, principles and ideals you hold dear in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the democracy you have built. It is not unreasonable to expect America to practice abroad what it preaches at home. We can but sincerely hope that you use your honest judgment and the blessings of ascendancy God has given you to demand an end to the occupation. Meaningful democracy cannot flourish as long as an external force maintains the balance of power. It is the right of all people to pursue their own destiny.
"The writer [Mousa Abu Marzook] is deputy political bureau chief of the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas). He has a U.S. doctorate in engineering and was indicted in the United States in 2004 as a co-conspirator on racketeering and money-laundering charges in connection with activities on behalf of Hamas dating to the early 1990s, before the organization was placed on the list of terrorist groups. He was deported to Jordan in 1997."
So, how does the above compare with the Charter of Hamas? Mousa Abu Marzook is comparing Hamas to American ideals?
Malaysia's Prime Minister has officially responded to the election of the terrorist government in Palestine. Of course, the world 'terrorist' is never ever used, not even once, in this official press release. In fact, the PM's entire statement displays an astonishing disconnect from reality. Malaysia, being a Muslim state, never strays very far from the official OIC line--official Islamic propaganda is very much alive and well here. This propaganda consists of equal parts denial, obfuscation, and outright fantasy.
Read the official Malaysian Government press release below, but be forewarned, we are jumping deep into the rabbit hole here. So, to assist you, the reader, I have helpfully inserted clarifications in brackets at the end of each paragraph:

Accept Palestinian Election Results, Says Abdullah
KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 27 (Bernama) -- The international community should duly accept the outcome of the elections in Palestine and respect the choice of its people, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said today. [by 'accept', he of course means the infidels should keeping ponying up all that jizya to the 'Palestinian Authority' to the tune of $865 million a year. Yeah, great idea!]
The Prime Minister said the elections were conducted in the true spirit of democracy and the results reflected the wishes of the Palestinian people. [the 'Palestinians' have spoken, and they have voted for war and their endorsement of the destruction of Israel, just like it's written here in the Hamas charter. Yup, I'd say they've spoken all right.]
He said Malaysia welcomed the successful organisation of the recent elections in Palestine in which the people of Palestine had the opportunity to express their will through a peaceful democratic process. [a 'peaceful democratic process' for Palestine means no gun battles or riots until after the voting is over.]
"I congratulate President Mahmoud Abbas for his leadership in this regard," he said in a statement, here. [Abbas' 'leadership ability'?!? I wouldn't entrust Abbas with leading the local PTA, let alone a chunk of real estate in the Middle East that masquerades as a nation-state.]
He congratulated Hamas for its success in the elections and expressed confidence that the organisation would find it possible to accommodate other political parties in the political process and work towards establishing a government of national reconciliation in Palestine. [We all know what the Hamas idea of 'accomodation' is. All those young, agitated, thin-skinned Muslims with guns, the Hamas rank-and-file, they're actually very peaceful, just as long as you do exactly what they say.]
The future of Palestine, in particular its stability, progress and
prosperity, would depend on the unity among all Palestinians and their commitment to finding peaceful solutions to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, he said. [If those pesky Jews would just surrender peacefully, and willingly submit to the gentle rule of the Caliphate-to-be, that would take care of this whole thing so quickly, don't you know? We all know what Muslims mean when they say 'peaceful solutions'--do it our way or else.]
In this matter, the people of Palestine deserved the full support of all peace-loving peoples throughout the world, he said. [Peace-loving peoples = Muslims and the dhimmis who love them]
Malaysia, Abdullah said, called on all parties especially those directly involved in the West Asia peace process to work hand in hand to seek a lasting solution and establish a permanent peace in the region. [permanent peace = elimination of Israel]
In this regard, the process of negotiations in the context of the Roadmap for Peace in West Asia should be reinvigorated, he said. [you know which Roadmap we're talking about, right? It's the Roadmap that shows what the quickest way is for the 'martyrs' of Hamas to get to Haifa or Tel Aviv.]
He said Malaysia strongly believed that the objective of achieving an enduring peace in West Asia could only be achieved through the process of dialogue and negotiations which were carried out in good faith. [of course, all terrorist groups are strong believers in negotiations with their enemies that they have vowed to liquidate. Because the international community keeps saying so, that's why!]
Malaysia, he said, wished the new leaders in Palestine great success in their noble mission. [Hamas is on a 'noble' mission to wage war, murder every Jew they can get their hands on, implement ethnic cleansing and commit wholesale
genocide. Noble mission, my ass!]
I hope it's clear that I post these photographs of Mohammed because Muslims must learn the boundaries of civilized behaviour; and since they do not have boundaries in the West, because we move aside any time they kill at random, they continue to rampage and murder; thus, to confront them with their limits we must make it clear to our own that we demand limits.
Islam is the problem it is because we in the West allow it to be so. Since most won't do a danmed thing to make the situation better, we here do our part to make it so bad that we won't be able to ignore it any longer.
It might not seem helpful today but in the long term we think this will save lives and bring peace to the greater world.
I feel exactly the same way, although I could never have articulated it as well as Dag. Dag's the man.
How's that for influence? Good job, Blueslord.
You will also be interested to know that todays IBA traffic is much larger than usual. We are experiencing a flood of European visitors who are coming looking for information on the Jyllands-Posten cartoon controversy.
Welcome European Infidels. We are brothers, and I think I can speak for all IBA bloggers in saying that America will not sit down and watch Europe be overrun by the Jihadi menace, if we have anything to say about it.
Western Civilization is much too beautiful a thing for us to just hand the keys over to a bunch of marauding Jihadis whose psyche is beamed in from the 11th century.
Catch ya guys later.

I think Clinton will regret these words, but why should he care, he's really rich now. Good writeup at GOP Bloggers.
Bill Clinton Issue Fatwa Against Defaming the Prophet
Now that he is a former president, America is too small for Bill Clinton. He is a Citizen of the World and basks in the adulation of sycophants from Davos to Doha. From his bully pulpit, he condemns freedom of expression if it might offend the sensibilities of the delicate Muslims.
Former US president Bill Clinton warned of rising anti-Islamic prejudice, comparing it to historic anti-Semitism as he condemned the publishing of cartoons depicting Prophet Mohammed in a Danish newspaper.
"So now what are we going to do? ... Replace the anti-Semitic prejudice with anti-Islamic prejudice?" he said at an economic conference in the Qatari capital of Doha.
"In Europe, most of the struggles we've had in the past 50 years have been to fight prejudices against Jews, to fight against anti-Semitism," he said.
Clinton described as "appalling" the 12 cartoons published in a Danish newspaper in September depicting Prophet Mohammed and causing uproar in the Muslim world.
Maybe if they stopped using themselves as human bombs and flying planes into buildings, this perceived prejudice might abate. .............
The election of Hamas gives us another example. We should be able to argue that “it’s only a few” is absurd, “it’s not Islam but extremists” is laughable and “jihad means spiritual striving” is a lie. But first let’s look at the absurdities du jour.
Los Angeles area radio host, Bill Handel:
Los Angeles’s top talkradio station is under fire from a Muslim group because of comments made earlier this month by morning man Bill Handel. The Council on American-Islamic Relations has demanded an apology from Handel for making fun of a stampede that killed hundreds of Muslims during an annual pilgrimage.
But Handel is set to fire back, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Handel will apologize IF the Council on American-Islamic Relations:
1) Decries all acts of terror (described specifically, not generally)
2) Agrees that Israel is a sovereign nation with the right to defensible borders
3) CAIR has no ties of any sort, financially or otherwise, to any terror orgs or individiuals.
Ladies and gentlemen, we Infidels go through some depressing times, but I get the feeling things may be starting to turn. Yes, we bloggers can dish the truth, but the fact remains, we need our leaders in government and the media to stand up as well. Maybe, it is starting to happen.
Now, we need Condi and Bush to stare down the terror masters in Hamas with the same fury our man, Handel, is staring down the obfuscators at CAIR.
Blogs are being attacked in Europe. Viking Observer has the goods
They say they have been seeing an increase in traffic from the Middle-East. Well, so have we.
We may be next.
Thanks to Eyes All Around for clueing me in on what's going on.

Condi Speaks - "We're Clueless But We Hope to Break the Law and Fund Hamas, Islam's Leading Terrorists"
By STEVEN R. WEISMAN
Published: January 30, 2006
"I've asked why nobody saw it coming," Ms. Rice said, speaking of her own staff. "It does say something about us not having a good enough pulse."
Let me tell you why Condi. You have surrounded yourself with Muslim apologists, uberdhimmis and Moslim TaqiyyaMasters. That is why you still do not know what the words dhimmitude, taqiyya, kittman, and jizya mean. You refuse to read the Quran, any book by Spencer, Ye'or, Bostom, and so many more. You read romance novels by Esposito and Armstrong. Your expert advisor on Islam, David Forte, is a fraud, a on the dole Muslim apologist. But worse of all, you yourself are incompetent. An educated 'useful idiot for Islam' who speaks well.
In the next paragraph, you can tell they are already plotting how to get around the law against funding terrorism. Yes, our Secretary of State is plotting to break the law and give our tax money to terrorists. Condi for 2008!
'The administration then immediately began working with European and other allies to set up "normative standards" for any group participating in the political process. Those standards are to be the focus of the talks in London, with the financing cutoff an implicit threat to Hamas. But a cutoff could force Hamas to turn to other sources, like Iran, for help.'
I have WISDOM and nobody ain't going to tell me no different!
Ms. Rice told reporters that she was convinced of the wisdom of instilling democracy in the Middle East. Elections have brought into office anti-American Islamic radicals in Egypt, Lebanon and Iran, but Ms. Rice said the alternative was trying to bottle up seething anger in the region that could lead to more terrorist attacks in the West.
"There is a huge transition going on in the Middle East, as a whole and in its parts," she said. "The outcomes that we're seeing in any number of places, I will be the first to say, have a sense of unpredictability about them. That's the nature of big historic change. It's simply the way it is."
The Muslim world’s two main political bodies say they are seeking a UN resolution, backed by possible sanctions, to protect religions after the publication in Scandinavia of cartoons depicting the prophet Muhammad.
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, secretary-general of Organisation of the Islamic Conference, said in Cairo on Sunday that the international body would “ask the UN general assembly to pass a resolution banning attacks on religious beliefs”.
The deputy secretary-general of the Arab League, Ahmed Ben Helli, confirmed that contacts were under way for such a proposal to be made to the UN.
“Consultations are currently taking place at the highest level between Arab countries and the OIC to ask the UN to adopt a binding resolution banning contempt of religious beliefs and providing for sanctions to be imposed on contravening countries or institutions,” he said.
The world is splitting into two.
Well, since this is so depressing to see, why doesn't everyone click over here, and see the pretty picture Thomas drew of Mohammed.
Monsted Cavern from iGourmet
Monsted Cavern is so named because it is aged underground in the Monsted limestone cave in the central part of Denmark's Jutland peninsula. In this cave, a constant temperature of 45ºF and a constant humidity of 95% are naturally maintained year round. This climatic consistency yields an excellent product because the cheese is not subjected to environmental changes during aging. Monsted Cavern has a strong taste, and tickles the roof of your mouth like an aged Cheddar or Swiss. With a flavor all its own, Monsted Cavern is a surprisingly unique and delicious cheese.
In addition to those mentioned in the original article posted here on IBA about the "Buy Danish" campaign, I have posted more information about specific products to look for in your local stores, as well as three sites for shopping for Danish products online.
This is a worthy cause-- let's all make plans buy more Danish Products.
From the Candian Free Press:
Yesterday I wrote about the impotence that the world is showing through the UN in the face of Iran developing an Islamic nuclear weapon. There is a powerful historical parallel between the 1930s and today.
Adolf Hitler’s ideology combined a mystical destiny, an overwhelming sense of superiority, religion and an interminable hatred of Jews to form the fundamental tenets of National Socialism.
Mahmud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, presents a similar mix of beliefs that positions him and his country as the savior of Islam and the destroyer of all things Western. Ahmadinejad, Like Hitler, holds the belief that Jews are inherently evil and need to be eradicated in order to purify the world. And like Hitler, Ahmadinejad is arming Iran in preparation for a momentous confrontation with the hated Jews and their American supporters.
As Nazism flourished in most of Europe during the 1930s, so Islamism is now flourishing throughout the Middle and Far East. The avowed goal of Islamists, like that of the Nazis, is world domination and the extermination of the Jewish people. As such, the bellicose statements emanating from the likes of Ahmadinejad, Osama Bin Laden, the Taliban and others are reminiscent of the bellicosity that Hitler and his minions displayed prior to WWII.
The West, with the exception of Israel and the U.S. are behaving in much the same manner that their grandparents displayed during the 1930s. That is to say they do not believe war will come if only the Islamists get what they want. Much effort has been made to offer Iran material wealth and favorable trading terms in an attempt to purchase their abandoning the attainment of nuclear weapons.
Yet, like Hitler, who took everything that was offered to him and gave nothing in return, Ahmadinejad is bound and determined that Iran will have nuclear weapons, his assertion that the nuclear program is for peaceful purposes notwithstanding.
In the 1930s the Spanish Civil War served as a staging ground for the confrontation between Nazism and the rest of the world, much in the same way that Iraq and Afghanistan are serving a similar purpose today. Currently, a surrogate war is being fought in these two countries between the West and Islamism. While the prosecution of that war and the performance of those fighting is admirable, the weaklings and appeasers at home are betraying the sacrifices made by the brave men and women who are daily risking and in many cases, losing their lives.
Again, there is a parallel between today and the 1930s in that no major European leader is willing to stand up to the Islamofascists in the hopes of achieving "peace in our time". And in the United States, the Democratic Party wants America out of these conflicts post-haste in an ill-conceived plan to regain political power, assuming that if America isolates itself the looming conflict will go away. Fat chance.
It has been said that those who do not learn from history are doomed to relive it. Unless we deal with the Islamofascist threat right now, we will have to deal with it at some point in the future on the streets of our cities. If nuclear weapons are now a part of the equation, then the outcome of this imminent conflict may not parallel that of WWII.
There is no doubt in my mind that once nuclear capability has been attained, the Islamists in Iran will have no qualms about using it against Israel or anyone else, for that matter. The mullahs have already done the math and they believe they can survive a nuclear exchange with Israel.
So the question is: Do we deal with it today or do we wait until it deals with us?
Soft Muhammad and Hellfire Muhammad.
I'll let you know if I receive any good threats. Enjoy.
Update: meet Skull-hammad!

Dymphna’s post on Friday about Mukhtar Mai included the following assertion about pederasty under Islam:
…they don’t call it pedophilia in Muslim countries, nor do they consider anal rape of boys by older men as homosexual behavior if a man is the aggressor against the boy. Those acts are just standard operating procedure and this allows them to get around the strictures of Sharia law.
This provoked a question from Pastorius:
I’ve got a question. How does one document this statement?
The reason I am asking is because I have read these kinds of statements about Islamic society many times, but, there is no documentation.
This is not to say that I don’t believe that this kind of thing exists. I think it does exist in primitive societies all over the world. It exists in most prisons as well. And, of course, what is prison life, if not primitive life?
The thing is, as I can not document the above statement, when I have posted such things on my blog, I expect that liberals will think I am simply posting slander against Islam. I would really prefer to document what I write about, rather than going on anecdotes.
Dymphna responded to Pastorius, citing some sources that she has used in the past and providing additional information.
Then ik — a frequent commenter here at Gates of Vienna — supplied a reference to an article (originally found in The Times, but no longer available) about pederasty as it is traditionally practiced by the Pashtuns in Afghanistan. Correspondent Tim Reid was reporting from Kandahar four years ago:
Now that Taleban rule is over in Mullah Omar’s former southern stronghold, it is not only televisions, kites and razors which have begun to emerge. Visible again, too, are men with their ashna, or beloveds: young boys they have groomed for sex.
Kandahar’s Pashtuns have been notorious for their homosexuality for centuries, particularly their fondness for naïve young boys. Before the Taleban arrived in 1994, the streets were filled with teenagers and their sugar daddies, flaunting their relationship.
It is called the homosexual capital of south Asia. Such is the Pashtun obsession with sodomy — locals tell you that birds fly over the city using only one wing, the other covering their posterior — that the rape of young boys by warlords was one of the key factors in Mullah Omar mobilising the Taleban.
Mr. Reid goes on to describe the changes instituted by the Taliban as they imposed their strict interpretation of Sharia, including the now-infamous practice of toppling stone walls onto homosexual offenders.
But the Taliban have been hustled into the dustbin of history, and the traditional ways are re-emerging:
‘In the days of the Mujahidin, there were men with their ashna everywhere, at every corner, in shops, on the streets, in hotels: it was completely open, a part of life,’ said Torjan, 38, one of the soldiers loyal to Kandahar’s new governor, Gul Agha Sherzai.
‘But in the later Mujahidin years, more and more soldiers would take boys by force, and keep them for as long as they wished. But when the Taleban came, they were very strict about the ban. Of course, it still happened —the Taleban could not enter every house — but one could not see it.’
But for the first time since the Taleban fled, in the past three days, one can see the pairs returning: usually a heavily bearded man, seated next to, or walking with, a clean-shaven, fresh faced youth. There appears to be no shame or furtiveness about them, although when approached, they refuse to talk to a western journalist.
‘They are just emerging again,’ Torjan said. ‘The fighters too now have the boys in their barracks. This was brought to the attention of Gul Agha, who ordered the boys to be expelled, but it continues. The boys live with the fighters very openly. In a short time, and certainly within a year, it will be like pre-Taleban: they will be everywhere.’
What is one to make of all this? Does NAMBLA have a position paper on the overthrow of the Taliban?
Islam holds sway over a large part of the world where brutality has been the way of life for millennia. In Islamic tribal cultures, women are a scarce commodity, hoarded by rich and powerful men, leaving unattached men in the same situation as men in prison.
And the outcome is the same: the young and the weak become the “nancy boys” of the older and more powerful men. A culture of pederasty develops, consisting of dominant men and their catamites. Raised on a regimen of brutality, the young boys grow up to inflict it on the next generation.
Talk about a “cycle of violence.”
Cross-published at Gates of Vienna.
Dozens of al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades members held a demonstration against Denmark Sunday at the main square in the West Bank town of Nablus, shouted anti-Danish slogans and threatened to harm Danish targets located in the West Bank and Gaza.This makes sense. Obviously the biggest problem facing the West Bank Arabs is Danish newspaper cartoons. Likewise in Saudi Arabia and the other Mohammadean nations that have protested again these drawings in a small country in northern Europe.
Such touchy people. So easily insulted. It's not that they are thin-skinned. It's like they have no skin at all.
I invite all infidel bloggers to create your own cartoons and post them wherever possible. If 12 sketches in a Danish newspaper can cause such a global reaction, how about a worldwide network of hundreds of cartoons. There's no need to be obscene; remember most of the Danish cartoons were simple depictions of Muhammad. (Theoretically any image of the Mo-man is somekind of bad mojo in Islam.) I'll find my sketchbook and a pencil and post my effort later today.
If an air and missile strike could destroy Iran's nuclear weapons program, it might seem the best of many bad options. But the likely costs outweigh the benefits. ... Unless we were prepared to escalate, ultimately to the point of taking down the regime, we could end up in worse shape than when we began.
Then Kagan entertains a little wishful thinking. Maybe, just maybe, if we keep our fingers crossed and eat all our vegetables, we can support domestic regime change. [If you listen closely, you can hear me laughing.]
Still, Kagan is a smart guy. He returns to the real world.
But we shouldn't delude ourselves. Efforts to foment political change won't necessarily bear fruit in time to prevent Iran from acquiring a bomb. That may be the risk we have to take. But if this or the next administration decides it is too dangerous to wait for political change, then the answer will have to be an invasion, not merely an air and missile strike, to put an end to Iran's nuclear program as well as to its regime.Now more than ever it is important that we not delude ourselves. The stakes are too high and the threats all too terrible.

I'm not suggesting that people wear anything one way or another, blue scarves or pink touques, but I am suggesting that we make ourselves known publically to anyone at a glance that we are against fascist Islam.
And if you worry about people laughing at you for wearing a blue scarf in Texas, think how silly you'll look with no head on top of it.
Point well taken. That would be pretty silly, wouldn't it? I mean, where would you put your cowboy hat?
By the way, after a lot of problems with blogger -mainly the template but there were others-, the three of us -we are three people now writing on my blog- have moved to a brand-new server. The adress is here. I have imported all the posts I have written to this day to the new blog. We hope you will like it.
Mojtaba SamieNejad, 25 year old blogger and student, was first arrested on November 1, 2004 for reporting the arrests of three other bloggers. He was held in custody for almost three months. Following his temporary release on January 27, 2005, he started a new blog to reflect his thoughts and beliefs. This resulted in a second unlawful arrest which has lasted to this day.Mojtaba is kept in Ghezel Hesar prison amongst inmates convicted of murder and other serious offences. Mojtaba was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment on June 2, 2005. This sentence was issued by Judge Saadat of Revolutionary Court 13.
It is ours' and all human rights activists' duty to take a stand against the injustice of imprisonment for voicing one's opinion. We ask all bloggers, human rights organizations and free people of the world to help Mojtaba by voicing their objection to his sentencing and demand his immediate and unconditional release.

Late last night, this popped into my email inbox:
"U.N. nuclear chief Mohamed ElBaradei on Friday called on the United States to provide Iran with nuclear reactors and urged Tehran to declare a moratorium on enriching uranium for at least eight years.
"ElBaradei said that amountof time would enable the country to earn the confidence of the international community that it was really interested in nuclear energy not nuclear weapons....
"However, Ivan Safranchuk, a Russian analyst, cautioned that Iran might be using the plan only to buy time as it fights to avoid potential U.N. sanctions.
"Asked for his advice to Western officials, ElBaradei said: 'You need to keep all options on the table.'
"But U.S. Sen. JohnMcCain appeared to rule out negotiations.
"'They're interested inacquiring weapons of mass destruction and dominating the Middle East,' McCain, told a panel. 'I don't know of any carrot that works.'...
"Carrot"? As in, appeasement?
The U.N. Security Council is scheduled to meet February 1-2.
In France, people are designating meeting days for anti-Jihadis. They set a time and a place, via internet, and then show up wearing a blue scarf to let others know what they stand against. This is helping people to know that there is solidarity and followship for the lonely anti-Jihadis in their dhimmified society.
Dag from No Dhimmitude is heading up the Blue Revolution in Vancouver, Canada:
Here in Vancouvber, Canada our meeting ran over-time. No bomb-threats, no hysterical jihadis storming the citidel, no cause for law suits over spilt coffee. It could have been a disaster. In fact it nearly was a disaster: I went to the store where I buy my clothes, I asked the clerk for a blue scarf, and I got a blank stare in return. Normal enough, but they didn't have any blue scarves either. I am a Blue Revolutionary at this time, and nothing can stop me. I ran home, found an old jumper, and cut a swath through it till I could swear it looked just like the scarf I would have bought anyway. My only concern was the colour, whether it was blue, green or some other shade I can't quite distinguish.
I sat with a girl I know, chatted her up till she mentioned that I had people looking at me across the room. Yes, we have made contact. Yes, we're going to do it again. There is no burning issue here in Vancouver, Canada, not something so immediate that all people are frantic for a solution or at least a crowd to shout to. And yet, there we were at the People's Temple, at McDonalds. We did not meet the numbers of our friends at the rally in Paris. Not yet. We did meet well into over-time, and we will meet again. We will grow and we will make a difference. Here are a couple of letters from others, and I'll update anything else that comes in as it comes.

Her name is Padma Lakshmi, and yes, she is one sweet little infidel, isn't she?
By the way, I had to have my wife do a little photo-retouch, to cover up the nipples. We may be Infidels, but we ain't pornographers.
Hamas soldier does Nazi salute
I'm going to join Little Green Footballs in posting the Hamas Charter today. Please keep in mind that the last paragraph here is straight from the Koran; the Holy Book of the Religion of Peace:
"Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious...The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah’s victory is realised...
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the wings of Muslim Brotherhood in Palestine. The Muslim Brotherhood Movement is a universal organization which constitutes the largest Islamic movement in modern times...
It strives to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine, for under the wing of Islam followers of all religions can coexist in security and safety where their lives, possessions and rights are concerned...
The Islamic Resistance Movement is one of the links in the chain of the struggle against the Zionist invaders. It goes back to 1939, to the emergence of the martyr Izz al-Din al Kassam and his brethren the fighters, members of Muslim Brotherhood. It goes on to reach out and become one with another chain that includes the struggle of the Palestinians and Muslim Brotherhood in the 1948 war and the Jihad operations of the Muslim Brotherhood in 1968 and after...
The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him...’
I would ask that everybody post this today. Please.

As the mainstream media expresses shock that Muslims would support terrorism, I argue that unless we change our policy of denial and appeasement, we will be dealing with and funding Hamas. We, in the West, have mistakenly rewarded terrorism. And we’ve been blind about Islam. Now is the time to demand a radical change in policy and more …
A Brussels Journal has published the all the cartoons, with useful English translations! Further developments say Swedish papers are considering to publish the cartoons in a show of solidarity. Thought I'd post this cartoon since I haven't seen this one yet... I say Up The Ante. Fuck it, this is freedom of expression; something these cretinous imbeciles who are stuck in the 7th century need to learn, and quick.
I know for a fact the majority of modern Muslims in Europe couldn't give a monkeys. They have lives to lead. I wish this intolerant vocal minority would just the fuck up, or pack up!
In Africa, Islam and Christianity are growing - and blending
By Abraham McLaughlin, Staff writer of The Christian Science MonitorThu Jan 26, 3:00 AM ET
At first, it seems a surprising sight: inside a two-story mosque in sub-Saharan Africa's largest metropolis hangs a life-size portrait of Jesus Christ.
Yet worshipers at "The True Message of God Mission" say it's entirely natural for Christianity and Islam to cexist, even overlap. (guess they never heard of dhimmitude) They begin their worship by praying at the Jesus alcove and then "running their deliverance" - sprinting laps around the mosque's mosaic-tiled courtyard, praying to the one God for forgiveness and help. They say it's akin to Israelites circling the walls of Jericho - and Muslims swirling around the Ka'ba shrine in Mecca. (hmm...I thought Jesus delivered us not a jog around the mosque..what is it with the running?)
This group - originally called "Chris-lam-herb" for its mix-and-match approach to Christianity, Islam, and traditional medicine - (these drugs are illegal in the States) is a window on an ongoing religious ferment in Africa. It's still up for debate whether this group, and others like it, could become models for Muslim-Christian unity (hahahahahahaha...LMAO) worldwide or whether they're uniquely African. But either way, they are "part of a trend," says Dana Robert, a Boston University religion professor.
Amid intense sectarian violence in this half- Muslim, half-Christian country, these groups serve as tolerant peacemakers. Also, with widespread poverty and health concerns here, people are seeking practical, profitable religion more than rigid doctrine.
Before Islam and Christianity arrived in Africa, people here "believed in deities being close" - in gods who resided in trees or rivers (Romans 1:20-25) and helped or hurt locals daily, explains Kamaldeen Balogun, an Islamic studies professor at Olabisi Onabanjo University in southeastern Nigeria.
"You in the West are satisfied with one hour of church on Sunday," (only during football season, the rest of the year I could stay all day) says Mr. Balogun. But for people in Africa, who he says need so many solutions, "This is about a practical way of life," about a willingness to combine Christianity or Islam with their own traditions to "see if they can make something new" - something that will help. (Isn't it Ecclesiastes where it says there is nothing new under the sun)
Worshipers at the "True Message" mission say unifying the two theologies has made a major difference in their lives. (Has to make you wonder when the jizya tax will be imposed)
A slight woman with a quick smile, Kuburat Hamzat says she came here in 1998 with a severe menstruation problem. (Islam will give you permanent PMS Baby) She was embraced by the mission's "man of God," a soft-spoken, bald man named Samusideen Saka. He told her, "Dancing will not kill you" (but the Quran and Southern Baptists won't let you do it) and prescribed 91 (why just 91? Is this the magic number for getting rid of menstrual cramps - ladies take note) laps of "running deliverance" each day. He also explained the commonalities of the great faiths to Ms. Hamzat who had grown up in Islam. That understanding, she says, changed her. "Because I understood that in my mind, I got healed," she says. Her problem hasn't recurred, she says. Others say they've been cured of barrenness, mental illness, and other troubles.
Pastor Saka explains that his father was an herbalist (euphemism for pot smoker and crackhead) and that both Muslims and Christians would come to him for healing. Although he grew up Muslim, and has been to Mecca on pilgrimage several times, he couldn't comprehend Nigeria's sectarian strife. He now considers himself a Christian, "but that doesn't mean Islam is bad." (Oh no ...)
Quite the opposite. Next to his mosque is a televangelist's dream - an auditorium with 1,500 seats, banks of speakers, a live band, and klieg lights. On Sundays the choir switches easily between Muslim and Christian songs, (say it isn't so) and Pastor Saka preaches from both the Bible and the Koran. His sermons are often broadcast on local TV. (wow two religions that are mutually exclusive...anyone else confused here)
The broader context here is Africa's dramatic shift in recent decades to Christianity and Islam. During the 20th century, fully 40 percent of Africa's population moved from traditional religions to "different shades (race baiting) of Christianity," says Philip Jenkins, a history and religion professor at the University of Pennsylvania. It is, he adds, "the largest religious change that has ever occurred in history." There are debates about whether Christianity or Islam is spreading faster in Africa, but clearly they're both on the rise - and sometimes are the source of tension. (understatement of the year)
In Nigeria's religious city of Jos (short for "Jesus Our Savior") the government says 50,000 people died between 1999 and 2004 in sectarian clashes. Until a peace deal last year, Sudan's northern Muslims and southern Christians were at war for two decades. (correct me if I'm wrong but weren't the Christians driven out?)
Clearly, the religious revolution is still shaking out. "People are converting rapidly, but they don't necessarily have instruction" in the details of their faiths, says Boston University's Professor Robert. Nor have they had "time for their belief system to solidify.(clearly that's what makes this another cult) " It is, she says, "still shifting." She argues that eventually the faithful will choose one religion or another, and the hybrids (like the Toyota Prius?) will fade away.
But the ferment is quite evident on the chaotic streets of Lagos, which is home to some 10 million people. Hundreds of church-sponsored banners scream out, "It's your day of RECOVERY @ LAST where life's pains are healed" or "Jesus Christ: A friend indeed! Even in times of need!!" (true that my brother...I think)
Healing is a regularly promised feature of churches across Africa. It's symbolic of a key element of the continent's religious explorations - fusing faith and rationality (since when) , Professor Balogun says. According to Western thought, with its emphasis on rationality, "Everything that goes up must come down," he says. But a more African approach is that, "By divine intervention it may not come down." In fact, his university is initiating a degree focusing on the religion-science nexus.
Meanwhile, it's not just Saka who's exploring the common ground between Christianity and Islam (would this be the false idea that we both worship the same God and the same Jesus?) . Sitting in a wrought-iron throne, swathed in silky white fabric, the founder of "Chrislam" has these words for followers of the two great faiths: "The same sun that dries the clothes of Muslims also dries the clothes of Christians." Stroking his beard, the man named Tela Tella (ok I heard your name the first time) says, "I don't believe God loves Christians any more than Muslims." (True - but Muslims don't love Christians)
His followers calls him His Royal Holiness (How about his royal Bruce Jenner...he ran around a lot) , The Messenger, Ifeoluwa or "The Will of God." Since the religion's founding two decades ago, this small band has been gathering almost daily to hear his message of inclusiveness - that Christians and Muslims, "who are sons of Abraham, can be one." (Read the Bible pastor it can't happen)
Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world I John 4:1
Is anyone competent pointing out the big picture for Bush and Rice other than muslim apologists and sycophants like David Forte, John Esposito, Bernard Lewis..I could go on but what's the point. And now, we have Condi repositioning Hamas as a 'potential partner.' Good grief. Thanks Bush, for bringing your 'light unto the Mohamedans' to an epoch with the landslide win of Hamas. You said we would accept a Shiite religious party in charge in Iraq. Hezbollah has grown to dominate Lebanon. Now this. Why don't you ask David Forte or Bernard Lewis what to do now?
Meanwhile, here are the Saudis and every wacko Mohamedan organization, demanding punishment and an apology for the cartoons. I say Screw you, Mohamedans.
You idiots, they are ALL OVER THE WEB in thousands of pages. Like Here! Don't they have a computer in Saudi Arabia with an internet connection? I got an idea for the Saudis. Demand that Google remove all these images! Why stop there? Demand the US ban the images from all websites. Yeah, do it. I dare you. I want to see what happens. Let's see which dhimmi states bow down and beg for mercy.
Here's one for the road!
Boycott of Danish Goods Over Blasphemous Cartoons
Javid Hasan & Abdul Hannan Faisal Tago, Arab News
RIYADH, 27 January 2006 — Abdullah Al-Othaim, executive president of Al-Othaim Holding Company, reaffirmed yesterday his company’s boycott of Danish products until that country’s largest daily apologizes for publishing 12 cartoons that mocked the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
Danish food giant Arla Foods said in Copenhagen yesterday it was being targeted by the Saudi boycott because of the publication of the offensive cartoons.
Arla Foods is Europe’s second-largest dairy company and the leading Danish exporter to Saudi Arabia, where it sells an estimated two billion kroner ($328 million) worth of products every year.
In a statement yesterday, Dr. Saleh Al-Wohaibi, secretary-general of the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (WAMY), called the newspaper’s actions part of “a culture of Islamophobia” and asked the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) member countries to take a firm united stand against such indiscretions by forming a concerted action plan. The OIC and the Muslim World League (MWL) have both issued statements condemning the images.
Al-Wohaibi said WAMY rejects outright any justification behind “such uncivilized behavior in the name of freedom of expression.”
“(The WAMY) firmly believes that all prophets (peace be upon them) should be kept away from derogatory and slanderous attacks, because these were the chosen lot of the Almighty to guide humanity on the right path,” said Wohaibi. “Therefore, mocking at the prophets (peace be upon them) is highly degrading and subverts the call for human values and freedom of faith advocated by the United Nations Charter.”
The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), he pointed out, is a role model for Muslims around the world and occupies a supreme position in the hearts and minds of every Muslim, who is ready to sacrifice his life and property for his cause. His love and affection for him far exceeds the love of his family members. [See. Mohammedanism is the correct term, not Muslim.]
“In the light of the principles of our religion and human values, which respect beliefs of other religions and in an effort to soothe the sentiments of the aggrieved Muslim community, WAMY appeals to the governments of the Muslim countries to understand their obligations and responsibilities toward their citizens and launch a campaign to make sure that such inflammatory attacks on Islam and the Prophet do not recur in future,” said Wohaibi.
WAMY also sought an unconditional apology from the governments of Denmark and Norway for their failure to take action against those responsible for the blasphemous cartoons and called on them to commit themselves to the principle of respect for religions.
It also urged the international community and institutions to stand firmly against repetition of such outrageous incidents and punish the culprits who deliberately provoke over one billion Muslims as part of their hostile propaganda against Islam.
Al-Wohabi said: “We would also like to draw the attention of those scholars, thinkers and leaders of the world who are working for the cause of justice and world peace not to ignore such uncivilized behavior that only emboldens the critics of Islam to launch more vituperative attacks against this religion. Sowing such feelings of hatred will only undermine the efforts of some noble souls who are striving to bring nations together for a comprehensive world peace.”
The Danish Embassy in the Kingdom reiterated its government’s stand that condemns any expression, action or indication that attempt to demonize groups of people on the basis of their religion or ethnic background.
The general reaction in Riyadh was that freedom of expression does not mean the freedom to act irresponsibly.
Typical of such comment came from a marketing executive Muneef Ali Mirza who said: “No newspaper or magazine in the Muslim world would ever think of publishing any damaging article against Jesus or Moses or any other prophet (peace be upon them), since all of them are highly respected in Islam. That’s the difference between the Islamic and the Western society.” [Do you see a trend here? A strategy to pass religious hate speech laws in the West for ALL religions. Will the other relgions fall for it?]
“When someone offends the Prophet (pbuh), it is not only just a local problem but also affects Muslims worldwide,” Abdul Wahid Petersen, a leading imam in Denmark, was quoted as saying on Danish public radio.

Well, the "Palestinians' are having an election, which may or may not lead to change. Generally, there are two periods when the Palis become very violent-- during periods of change, and during periods when things stay the same. Since either is now possible, I would expect violence to increase greatly after the election.
In addition, there's a good chance that whoever loses will feel humiliated by defeat. In fact, with these people, its quite probable that even those who win will find a way of feeling humiliated by that experience! Feeling humiliated is a big deal here-- feeling humiliated is very "politically correct" in "Shame Based Cultures".
And, when these people feel humiliated, they tend to become very, very angry!!! And, when they become angry, they become very violent. (In many cases, they have even been known to massacre large numbers of totally innocent civilians-- preferably Jews, of course, but if none are available, they will murder just about anyone who's convenient-- "suspected collaborators", daughters who have brought "dishonor" to their families by having the nerve to let themselves get raped, etc.)
Remember, its a "Shame Based Culture"-- "shame', dishonor", and 'humiliation" go hand in hand. Things that we would tolerate in western cultures are often seen as cause for feeling "humiliated".
For all these reasons, then, I thought that this might be a good time to post some links to a few short online slideshows and video clips that I have found to be among the most helpful in understanding this bizarre culture:
1. In a Nutshell A short online slideshow. One of the best presentations of the history of Israel & "Palestine" I've seen.
2. Nutshell Too More re: the History.
3. Imagine Shows the impact of terrorism on ordinary peoples's lives
4. Concept Wizard Homepage Several more excellent slideshows by the people who created those listed above

6. Video clip of the original CNN Report: Palestinians Celebrate 911
7. Friday Sermon, Official Palestine TV: Dr. Halabiya
8. Friday sermon, Official Palestine TV: Mudayris (A different approach toward the Pali Friday sermon)
9.Pallywood A slightly longer clip, documenting how Pali's fake stories for the news media.
10. Interview with a suicide bombers' mother Excellent insights as to the way Islam influences her thinking.
I think it is important that as many people as possible see these, so, if you have a blog, please consider posting links to some of these there, so as to make this information available. Also, consider possibly forwarding a few of these links to your email lists.
The more people that are able to have this information available, the better.

Dutch Introduce Exams for Immigrants, Consider Army Drill for Youths
From the desk of Paul Belien on Sat, 2006-01-21 20:46
This week the Dutch Parliament voted a bill which obliges immigrants to pass a compulsory exam. The Dutch Parliament is also in favour of a proposal to have troublesome youths disciplined and drilled by the army.
From 1 March onwards people who want to settle in the Netherlands (e.g. to join family members or to marry someone living there) will have to pass a preliminary test at the Dutch embassy in their country of origin. In this so-called “integration test” the immigrants have to prove that they have sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language and the geography, history and political system of the Netherlands. The fee for taking the test is 350 euros. Those who do not pass are not allowed to enter the Netherlands. Those who do pass have only taken the first hurdle. After their arrival in the Netherlands they will have to pass a second – more difficult – exam.
The exams are part of a bill proposed by Rita Verdonk, the Minister for lntegration. The Dutch House of Representatives approved the bill on Thursday. The Dutch Senate had done so last month. The Netherlands is the first country to subject immigrants to exams. Last year the Danish government, too, announced plans to significantly curb the flow of immigrants from third-world countries.
From The American Thinker:
Before the founding of the modern State of Israel, the anti-Semitic view of the historical role of the Jew was that of half-willing victim. Jews were supposed to wait patiently while the Poles, Tartars, and Cossacks threw the bones to see who got to burn down the village this time. Many of us thought this subjection ended in 1948 and would never again disgrace humanity.
Discussions surrounding the Iranian nuclear threat suggest this judgment may have been premature. Talks concerning Iranian nuclear programs between Iran on one hand and Britain, France, and Germany on the other exhibit the nature of a ritual shadow play, one that consistently overlooks what should be the most salient fact: that Israel itself possesses nuclear weapons.
You’d think this would lend some sense of urgency to efforts to defuse the crisis, but you’d be wrong. The Jews are once again expected to wait while the dice are being tossed, this time until Tel Aviv and Haifa vanish in blinding flashes of fire.
As it says in the Bible, the Roman Centurions cast lots for Jesus the Jews clothing as he hung dying on the cross.
Things never change, do they? The god of this world is intent on killing the Jews. Why do you think that is?
Let us look at more, if we dare:
The criteria for a preventive nuclear war have never been codified, simply because such an alternative is too ghastly to contemplate. But the possible need for such an action is in little doubt.
Few would argue against the necessity of a preventive strike against a nuclear-armed Hitler. In 1948, Bertrand Russell, godfather of the peaceniks, publicly suggested such a strike against Stalin’s USSR (he went to great pains in later years to deny ever saying any such thing, but the printed record doesn’t lie). For that reason, it’s difficult to say what factors are required to justify such an action.
But the case of Iran – a demonstrable record of bloodthirstiness and callousness, an expansionist messianic ideology, a foreign policy based in large part on anti-Semitism, rule by a hallucinatory fanatic, explicit threats of a nuclear first strike – pushes any conceivable envelope.
I don't think we need to go nuclear on Iran. I think we just need to bomb their regime into oblivion.

Avenging Apostate, one of the bloggers over at Pedestrian Infidel, has a great post on the Barbary Coast Pirates, who were the Islamic Jihad of the high seas back at the time of the birth of the United States. Here's an excerpt:
The newborn country had just won its independence from the then reigning world power Britain and was trying to stand up on its own feet. But even then it had an enemy—an enemy that wasn’t attacked by America first, that America didn’t have any serious dealings with—an enemy that still looms large to this day.
You guessed it right, Islam attacks us now—and it attacked us back then too.
Not because America had asked for oil or backed Israel, but because it was a duty on the Moslems of that time (as it is now) to subdue the non Moslems and demand from them the Jizya tax. And strangely enough, they managed to do so for some time.
Once America won its independence in 1783, word of this far-away event eventually reached the Islamic city state of Tripoli (now in Libya) and its barbarian (Moslem) allies of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia. These Moslems quickly decided to impose the Jizya tax on all American ships, ‘ordering’ the new nation to pay the Moslems the ‘Jizya’ tax, or else its ships in the Mediterranean will be looted and plundered.

"Can it be? Grover Norquist, an Islamist enabler? Norquist is perhaps best known as the founder and president of Americans for Tax Reform, and his bio and resume are impressive, especially for those on the right side of the political spectrum. But according to Frank Gaffney and Michelle Malkin, among others, Grover Norquist has another side, a side which might indicate Islamist sympathies."

Warning, this is a self-proclaimed wonk and these posts are considerably geeked out on the technicalities and scientific side of this issue. Not casual reading. Still, I found his post well worth my time.

Dude, I've been saying this for weeks. (For example, see The Day After We Bomb Iran and New Age.)
At best, a military strike would set back Iran's program a few years, inflame public opinion there and unify the nation in its bid to go nuclear.

TEHRAN, Iran - Iran said Sunday that Israel would be making a "fatal mistake" if it takes military action against Tehran's nuclear program and dismissed veiled threats from the Jewish state as a "childish game."
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's Foreign Ministry on Sunday flatly denied any currency had been transferred from Tehran's overseas accounts to protect holdings from possible economic sanctions over work on its atomic programme.
JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel's Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz warned the people of Iran on Saturday that their president would bring disaster and suffering upon them if he continued to call for the destruction of the Jewish state.
BEIJING (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah arrived in Beijing on Sunday for his first ever state visit and analysts said China wants to draw closer to the Middle Eastern oil power without challenging Saudi ties to Washington.
Well, and looks like Al-Sadr has offered his "army" to Teheran just in case Iran is attacked. But I cannot find it in English. In Spanish Here. He also said: "The Army of the Mahdi goes beyond the Amry of Iraq. It was created to defend Islam".

One particular heart-warming comment from from terrorist-loving-scum 'UmmMusab';
"I Do Not Regard Kaafir Aid Workers to Be Innocent at All in Iraq or in any Muslim Land"See the kind of mentality we need to deal with here? What pisses me off is where is the Main Stream Media? Where's the 'investigative journalism'? You can bet your kuffar ass that if it was white supremacist videos they'd be on the case in a shot. But they're 'Muslims' so we have to sensitive to their terrorist needs. I'm not insuating all Muslims are like this (in the UK it's about 6%) but you only need one Islamozombie to blow up a lot of people. And there's a notable lack of refutation from the hoardes of moderate Muslims on these forums... Via LGF. [Cross posted at DrunkenBlogging]
